Abraham By Topic Main Topics Page
for self study, quotes reference, topic specific personal experiences....
Pick the topic or not, identify wanted feelings and write the feeling(s) out..that's it! okay, there is more actually...
- "I want to feel" statements help rendezvous with feelings that are out of range. This is slow momentum, soothing and soft energy. Use "I want to feel" to stabilize emotions or slow down momentum of unwanted emotions.
- "I like to feel" statements help to gain emotionally stability and stamina once you are already in emotions that are wanted.
- "I love to feel" statements are only for when you are really feeling the target emotions and you are pretty stable within them. The energy is very fast so watch your tension levels carefully when making them. With even subtle thoughts the emotions can change suddenly but subtly at first. Pay close attention, never push it, never fake it; respect the momentum and be kind to yourself.
PS: Do NOT describe issues ("what is") in this thread why we feel how you feel, even how we feel is not the focus of this process, only an actual focus forward allows for self-demonstration of the results from the emotional grid process.
transcribed from this clip above:
..If it is your desire to understand how this all fits together, then this will be a very good opportunity for us to chew on that.
Do you like being here focused here in your physical bodies? And do you understand the advantage that it is to you and to all-that-is?
Do you understand that as you know what you don't want, you know what you do want?
And when you know what you do want, you know what you don't want?
And in all of that there is a focusing, and that focusing is a summoning?
Do you understand that when you focus on anything, just for a short period of time, that you activate a vibration within you?
We've been talking about this for a long time and some of you have been around for awhile with us. And these days we are describing that vibration that occurs because of your focus as a foundation or a basis, or a sort of "grid".
The grid sometimes is hard to get your thoughts around. But envision something grid-like. Whether it's a skeleton or a structure. And imagine the grid of it. In other words you can see through it. Your house is sort of grid like before they put the walls in; once the frame work is up. You can see through it, you can see the basic structure of what it's going to be; but you can't really get a sense of what's it's like to be in it, to live in it or even to look at it until more is filled in.
And of course more does fill in, doesn't it? The walls come; exterior and interior. The roof comes; the insulation goes in. The paint goes up, the exterior rock or whatever. And so, it continues to evolve and become, but in the beginning it's a basic structure that does fill in. And when you began the house or whatever it was, you knew that it would begin with a foundation, with a grid that would fill in. And we think it might be helpful if you began to look at your point of attraction in just that way. Because you are moving through your day to day experiences interacting with one another and you are having emotional responses to what you are observing, yes? In fact for most people your emotional response is all about something that you are observing. It doesn't have to be; you could be conjuring it in your mind, you could be imagining it. But most people are offering most of their vibration and therefore most of their emotion in response to something that they are observing.
So let's say that you are moving through your day and you are observing different things and in your observation of them you're having emotional responses to them. And we would like you to try to imagine that each one of those emotional responses is an indicator of what kind of grid, what kind of foundation, what kind of grid you've got going on that will fill in (emphasis verbal on "that will fill in"); it will fill in.
Now it might fill in quickly on this very day. Or on this very hour. Or within these few minutes that are surrounding you. It could fill in quickly if the intensity of your focus is significant enough that you establish a vibrational grid with enough attraction power. In other words, you can get going on things and something can be so emphatically offered in your vibration that your grid will fill in so fast it will knock your socks off if you're not aware of what creation is all about.
But sometimes your grid fills in more slowly. Because you move along and you sorta kinda feel that way and you sorta kinda feel that way and you sorta kinda feel that way and you sort kinda feel that way and then you feel a little more that way and then the grid fills in with somebody else that will talk to you about it. And as the grid fills in with somebody who will talk more with you about it then the grid becomes more substantial. A more substantial point of attraction.
So let's call this grid, and you understand what we mean by it; let's call it your point of attraction. Your point of attraction that you have more control over than you have been exercising, but in either case, whether you are controlling the content of your vibrational grid deliberately or by default, just by observing and feeling and observing and feeling; in either case it is filling in (slows down for emphasis on "it is filling in").
So, as it starts to fill in, what are some of the first things that fill in? Ideas, more ideas that come to you, more thoughts. Impulses. Your impulses come from that. You would call them inspiration sometimes, especially if they are good to you impulses. But your impulses. When to stop, when to go, when to go over there, when to call this person; those impulses are all part of your grid filling in. People rendezvousing with you, the things they say to you, the things that happen in your experience around you and with you are your grid filling in.
So what we would like you to consider and we know that you are here wanting to be deliberate creators; you understand (yes) that you create your own (yes) reality (yes). You get that, yes? In other words you've been listening to us for awhile and what you offer vibrationally and what comes back to you is always a vibrational match, it always always is. But as we break this down just a little bit and we help you to decide to be more aware of what you're doing with your grid which means be more aware of what your emotions are telling you.
We think that if we tell you that what you feel is an indicator of a grid that has attraction power that you might be more aware of how you feel; but even more important, you might be willing to deliberately alter the way you feel by your deliberate choice of focus. Because you can focus. You have the ability to create your own grid; you really do.
Do you believe that? Most people don't. Most people just create a grid based upon how they feel about the last grid that attracted stuff. So it's sort of this cycle: you had a grid, it attracted stuff, you observe the stuff and you created another grid. And then that grid attracted more stuff and you observed it and then you created another grid. Where we're wanting you to take control of the basis of the foundation of that which you are attracting.
Now, how does that feel to you? Makes sense, yes? Something you can sort of get your thoughts around?
So now, Abraham (speaking for us) You are sort of giving us the idea that we are surrounded by our grids of our own making. And we say yes! You've got a grid about your physical body, you've got a grid about your relationships, you have a grid about finances, you have a grid about a lot of different subjects and all of those grids mmmm blend together in the sense of how you feel basically. In other words, if you've got a strong sense of security, it's probably bleeding over into all of your grids. But if you've got something going on in your life that is causing you to particularly focus upon something, it's really got your attention; that one thing, whether it's something you really really really really like or it's something you really really really really don't like, it has the potential of really influencing the grid or the foundation or the attraction point for you. And so, if there's something going on that you find yourself obsessed with, and you don't feel good emotionally as a result of your attention to it, (it might be something in the news, it might be something political, it might be something that's happening in your family or to you specifically) but if you've got yourself really focused a lot on something specific and it doesn't feel good to you while you're thinking about it, then, we want you to know that you are establishing a grid that's gonna fill in with more unwanted stuff.
In like manner, if there's something going on in your life that's really ringing your bells, it's making you feel high and happy, you are waking up thinking about it, you are finding yourself wanting to talk to everyone about it; then you've got a grid going on that's filling in with a lot of other things. And it doesn't just fill in with the things specific to the subject that caused the grid; that's the thing that we really want you to understand, it fills in with other things that are vibrationally same but it can be on a myriad of different subjects. So what we just said to you is: find one thing to get happy about, establish a grid and live happily ever after relative to every thing else in your life. Or, find one thing to be UNhappy about, establish a grid and use it as your basis for for all kinds of other things that you don't want to come to you.
Don't you like knowing that you are the creator of your grid? And if you are the creator of your grid then you are the creator of your point of attraction and if you are the creator of your point of attraction then you are the creator of the impulses that come, the thoughts that come, the ideas that come, the rendezvous that come, the coincidences that occur. Those coincidences; you think that they are coincidences in a sort of chancy way; but they are not coincidences in a chancy way. They are coincidences; they are incidences that cooperatively come together, they are converging of similar vibrations, you see. And don't you like knowing that you have so much control over all of that? And doesn't it make you want to work on your grid?
Now, we want you to know that the grid is a vibrational basis. And at that vibrational basis is the essence of everything that you want. If you've been listening to us for awhile you've been hearing us say that you can be or do or have anything that you set your mind to. Anything that you focus upon, without except you can. But there is an emotional, vibrational grid like basis at the root of everything you want. You've heard us say: Everything that you want (whether it's a relationship, or a material object or a pile of money or a physical condition or a circumstance or an event), every single thing that you want without exception, you want it because you believe you will feel better in the having of it. And so that's what we are talking about with the grid; we are talking about the feeling better with the having of it or without the having of it; the feeling better with having the knowledge that if you create an emotional grid that feels like the essence of what you think you will feel once you get what you think you want (did you follow all of that?), if you can FEEL it before you get it, if you can feel the grid, if you can feel the basis, if you can find the emotional place; that simple but powerful nonresistant vibrational place, and at the root of the grid are emotions. And we think if you would focus emotionally on your grid, in other words, if something happens, let's say that something happens, it's an awkward situation with someone you care about. And you find yourself having those same normal, knee-jerk thoughts that you often have when this happens with anyone, but especially with this person; it's been going on for awhile. So you have your response, which means you have just established a new vibrational foundation, or you have added to one already established, but the emotion that you are feeling of uneasiness or even anger or frustration, is your indicator that you can keep this going; you certainly have the free will and the right to do it, but if you keep this going even for as long as seventeen seconds; it takes seventeen seconds to establish a grid. Seventeen seconds to establish a grid. And as you identify something and you stay focused upon it for that little bit of time, what's gonna happen is it's gonna start filling in with other things; other things like it. And so, the sooner you can catch yourself with conscious awareness that you've got something going on that you might not want to wait until it fills in; in other words, it's easy to know you want to establish a different grid when all kinds of manifestations are occurring that you don't want, but deliberate creation really is about holding yourself in that good feeling place. So if you will think about this emotional grid in an emotional way and ask yourself "What are the emotions that I am feeling?" and more important "What emotions do I prefer to feel?", you can catch this at the early subtle stages. In other words, rather than going off with law of attraction feeding you all kinds of thoughts and memories and bringing to you all kinds of other things that match it, and other people that agree with you about the injustice that you've just lived or other people agreeing with you about the injustice and living it around you, in other words you can get a whirlwind (oh, sort of like a vortex!) of all kinds of things going on; it can come to you really fast, can't it? But if you are wise enough to know that seventeen seconds is establishing a grid here and what am I wanting to do with my grid right now, right here right now, right here right now? Because every moment is new you know? Every moment is new. We don't want you to think that you've got a bunch of grids piled up that are going to play themselves out because that's not true at all. The grids that you have been creating and living in the past have nothing to do with what you are doing right now. Because your point of attraction is right now. This is a fresh new day and a fresh new moment and a fresh new grid in this fresh new moment and you have control over what you do with your grid right now.
