Abraham By Topic
for self study, quotes reference, spending time with the material expressed by Abe....
Kicking off with two quotes just as I found them...more to come in the thread....
There's also a discussion thread here: Co-Creation And Others
'The Universe can please all of you at the same time. "Well, how can
that be? If I want to live in the mountains and she wants to live at
the ocean, how could the Universe possibly please us both?" And we
say, as each of you gets to the essence of why you want what you
want, and are not pointing at the other and saying, "No, no, not
that, please not that," the Universe can fulfill both.'

Forbidden Belly Button Ring
GUEST: I don't get along with my father very well. He has very
contradictory ideas about what I want to do, and I was wondering, if
he wants something very strongly... Well, I want to pierce my belly
button and he does not want me to do that. It's like a sin, and so if
he is wanting very much for me to have a whole complete belly button
without any holes or anything, and I am wanting to have a belly ring,
how will that work out?
ABRAHAM: All right, now, let us show you what's happening here.
Teenagers are the one example in all of the Universe that defies the
Law of Attraction as we know it to be. (group laughs) We are having
fun with you. What happens with any two groups or two armies or any
two people that are wanting something different from the other...what
happens is, as your father knows clearly what he does not want and
gives that his attention, he is disempowered, which makes him mad at
you, because it is his attention to you that makes him feel so bad.
As you see your father as someone big and strong and in your way from
what you want, you are disempowered, which makes you want to blame
him for the way you feel. You're both using each other as your excuse
to not be connected to your Energy Stream.
So as each of you, independently from each other, focuses upon what
you don't want, momentarily, because that's always the best way to
identify what you do want... So your father would say, "Well I know
what I don't want. I don't want her puncturing her body. I know what
I don't want. I don't want her wearing something that is a symbol of
something that I don't feel comfortable with. It could mean any
number of things. But it is representation of something that I am not
at one with. I don't want her getting a belly button ring because I
wouldn't get one. I don't want her getting a belly ring because it
makes her appear to be something other than what I want her to appear
to be." Now, having said that, his desire may be erupting within him,
and so then he could begin saying, "What I want to include, relative
to my daughter, is I want her to be so at one with who she is that
she acknowledges that all is well with her. I want her to feel so
self-sufficient about who she is that she doesn't have to do anything
faddish in order to fit in. I want her to feel so confident and so
comfortable and so connected to who she is that she just radiates the
essence of that and doesn't feel any desire to go the way of the fad.
I want her to acknowledge that her magnificent body is young and
beautiful and delicious, and I want her desire to be to hold it in
that place forevermore." Now, if your father is saying those kinds of
things to you, we don't think you'd feel so much resistance about it.
When he taps into the pure essence of his Nonphysical Energy and
expresses that to you, you would not feel nearly so much resistance
Now, let's say that you're saying, "I don't want somebody telling me
what I can and cannot do. I don't want somebody else making their
decisions for me. I don't want somebody else making the decisions
about what I do with my own body." So you know what you don't want.
And then you begin making your statements of inclusion. "I want my
daddy to realize that I'm all grown up. I want him to know that I
really know what I'm doing. I want to be self-sufficient. I want to
All of a sudden, when you both start including, you find yourself
saying the same kinds of things. In other words, you are in absolute
harmony about what you want. And the belly ring is superfluous to any
of it. Get it or don't get it. It doesn't matter. You can both still
have what you want.
