ABRAHAM ON ALLOWING (more quotes in the thread)

"Resistance is using the contrast to say "No!"
Allowing is using the contrast to say "Yes!"


Have you come to the place where contrast has helped you give birth to a
fantastic new desire...and it is out there in the future somewhere? And
when you think about it, it is exciting, especially when you first birthed
it. And even though it has not yet manifest in your expereince you're good
with that? When you come to that place where a desire has been born within
you...the idea of it is clear and bright, but the realization has not yet are not yet with that person, or the dollars have not yet
come, you're still driving the other one or living in the other
know clearly what you want but it hasn't yet happened to you and you stand
in a place of satisfaction where you are and eager anticipation about where
you are going that is the optimum creative stance. Because under those
conditions there is little or no resistance in your vibrational output, so
you are in the state of allowing the desire you have given birth to and as
you are in the state of allowing the desire you have given birth to, Law of
Attraction must bring it to you. ~Abraham

  • "Do you have to change your vibration on a particular subject in order to let it in?" No, you don't. You could pet your pet and let it in. You could sit with your feet dangling in the bay, and let it in. If it is a subject that you often think of in an attitude of resistance, it is really worthwhile reaching for some thoughts that feel better. You could launch an intention and never think about it again, and the Universe would yield it to you. You don't have to clean up your vibration relative to anything, if you can just not think about it any more. That's why we teach meditation. It's easier to teach you to have no thought than to have pure positive thought. When you quiet your mind you stop thought; when you stop thought you stop resistance; when you stop resistance—then you are in a state of allowing.

  • Those that are succeeding and are thrilled and joyful in the unfolding will often tell you, "I've dreamed this since I was little. I imagined it, I pretended it, I used to practice with the hairbrush pretending it was a microphone." Purity is the alignment of energy. Doesn't matter what anybody else thinks about anything. It only matters what you think about it.

  • You are magnificent beings, in the perfect place at the perfect time, unfolding perfectly, never getting it done, and never getting it wrong. Be more playful about all of it. "Today, no matter where I'm going, no matter what I am doing, and no matter who I'm doing it with — it is my dominant intent to look for that which I'm wanting to see. I'm wanting to find thoughts and words and actions that feel good while I'm finding them. For in doing so, I am, in the moment, practicing the art of allowing all that I've been telling the Universe I'm wanting, for all of the days of my existence

  • The person that needs to do something is not that person. The person that needs to do something is you! Some of those people in your life do not deserve your good thoughts. In other words,

    (speaking an example out-of-the-vortex perspective:)

    "They are bad. They are evil. They are wrong! They are inappropriate. They do not deserve your good thoughts," and you stubbornly are not going to give them any. 

    (now speaking an abe bridging perspective:)

    They may not deserve your good thoughts. But you do. You deserve your good thoughts about them. This is what the Art of Allowing is. It's allowing my own Well-being.

    (the uncapitalized notes in parenthesis are from me; ds. i added it bc it seems to me that the out of the vortex perspective they expressed might not be clear to all readers as an out of the vortex other words at certain points on the scale a reader might read that and see that as abe saying that from inside the vortex another does not deserve....does not deserve. i'm not sure that abe really would imply that, hence the notes so that at least that point is exposed...for whatever that's worth...and i'm posing a question here really, just following a hunch :)) cause from the whole conversation which is worth listening to again..i think they are speaking of being in righteousness that's a bit off of the vortex; ( in instead of one of those "other vortices" that abe has told us there are, not to get too mathematical), aligned with that instead of the vortex....and making it right from inside the vortex for us to be in that state while also showing us the next step towards our vortex where right feels a bit better than all of that)

  • A great oldie one:





    Most people do not allow the happy moments because they are so busy trying to get a happy life.


    ~ Instead of "Earning" Abundance, "Allow" Your abundance ~


    Your action has nothing to do with your abundance! Your abundance is a response to your vibration. Of course your belief is part of your vibration, so if you believe that action is part of what brings you abundance, then you have to unravel that. 


    We would like you to release the word earn from your vocabulary and your understanding altogether, and we would like you to replace it with the word allow. You want to allow your Well-Being; it is not something that you need to earn. All you have to do is decide what you would like to experience, and then allow it in order to receive it. It is not something you have to struggle or try for. You are all worthy Beings, and you are deserving of this Well-Being.


    All the resources you will ever want or need are at your fingertips. All you have to do is identify what you want to do with it and then practice the feeling-place of what it will be like when that happens. 


    There is nothing you cannot be, do, or have; you are blessed Beings, and you have come forth into this physical environment to create. There is nothing holding you back other than your own contradictory thoughts. And your emotion tells you whenever you have such thoughts. Life is supposed to be fun—it is supposed to feel good! You are powerful creators, and you are right on schedule. Savor more; fix less. Laugh more; cry less. Anticipate positively more; anticipate negatively less. Nothing is more important than that you feel good. Just practice that and watch what happens.



    From the book, Ask and It Is Being by Esther and Jerry Hicks

    (Excerpted from the end of Process #19)


  • The only thing that makes the difference in the way you feel right now is the thought that you are thinking right now. It doesn't matter how much money you've got; there are joyful people with no money, and there are unhappy people with lots of money. How you feel is about how you are allowing the Source that is You to flow. So when we talk about the Art of Allowing, we're talking about the art of living; about the art of thriving; about the art of clarity. We're talking about the art of being who you really are.

  • Allowing good; or pinching the good off?



    "Allowing" means, how much of who I really am, I’m allowing — by my choice of thought — to be present in this moment. When you’re ornery, you’re pinching some of it off. That’s why you feel ornery. When you’re allowing who you really are to flow, you feel good. You feel as we feel: You feel clear; you feel sure; you feel invincible; you feel powerful; you feel eager; you feel adventurous; you feel kind; you feel willing; you feel compassionate; you feel understanding — you feel like giving others the benefit of the doubt.

    When you’re edgy, when you’re feeling a little vulnerable, or defensive; when you’re feeling guilty or blameful, when you’re feeling fearful — these feelings are indications that you’re pinching off who you are. And it’s no wonder you feel bad.

    Instead of saying, I think I feel bad because you said such and such to me, or because outside circumstances have happened in this way we would like you to stop for a moment and say, Oh wait a minute, I feel bad for one reason only: I feel bad because I’m not allowing who I really am to flow. And this is what it feels like when I pinch that off.

  • nice~~~ clarity~
  • is there a difference in "making" something happen
    and "allowing" something to happen?

    and when you allow something to happen
    is there an acknowledgement that it has already happened?
    and now you're allowing it

    in other words

    when you "try" to make something happen
    what is your acknowledgement?...that it hasn't happened
    and so you can't get there from there

    if you're "trying" to make something happen
    your dominate vibration is "it hasn't happened"

    when you're allowing it to happen
    your dominate vibration is "it's already happened so I'll just allow it to happen"

    it's a subtle, subtle sounding difference
    but it's the difference between whether it's,
    (Abe stammering a bit)
    it, it, it is the difference in whether it happens
    soon or later
    soon or never

    pretty big difference
    allowing and making

  • The Art Of Allowing, o we've never defined it or refined it anymore than we did here today: the Art Of Allowing is taking the general route into the vortex and practicing staying there as long as you can until being in the vortex and that comfortable, calm good feeling of being there becomes the norm for you. That's where the "art" word comes in.
