"Here is the way we would utilize our dreams most effectively.
Before we go to sleep we would say:

'I believe I will dream tonight. I will manifest while I sleep' - so
to speak. 'And if there is anything significant, I intend to recall
it when I awaken.'

And then in the morning, the first thing that you do as soon as you
are aware that you are back into physical consciousness, ask
yourself: 'Did I dream?'

And if you did dream, then ask yourself even if it's vague: 'Well,
how did the dream feel?' Because there's much more information
coming to you in the way the dream feels than in the way it plays
out."

  • A dream is a manifestation. Just like what you live is a manifestation, but a dream is quicker and easier to achieve, and not so troublesome if there's something you don't want.
    --- Abraham
    Excerpted from the workshop in Orlando, FL on Saturday, February 15th, 1997 # 534

  • mmmmmmmm, delicious insightful one, and imo it applies to 'awake' reality too very much so... thank you, I LOVE your bag of goodies.

    xoxo

    • lol...got that from abe quotes, been sitting in my email inbox for at least a day waiting for sorting. don't you love just doing your thing that's really just to entertain and learn for your own gain and watching others also benefit and be entertained! we've got a net-wide energy grid going that has clear boundaries for roaming and jumping or staying within according to how we like to do things. sigh. the pleasures of abe and the freedom of modern living.
  • Abraham: Your dreams are always meaningful. Always.

    Guest: Well, that's what I think - but like - when I dream of other people,
    are they actually in my dream? Or is that just me and my vibration?

    Abraham: Ohh... we are so happy you asked that. Because it helps us to
    give you something that we have already been giving here today that we
    really want you to hear.

    As they appear to you in your dream, it is as you have created them to be.
    As they appear to you in your real life experience, it is as you have
    created them to be.

    Do you get the impact of that? You thought it was their fault, didn't you?
    They behave the way you vibrationally expect and attract.

  • Most of you are sort of immune to your emotions unless they get really
    really strong.

     

    I'm loving this point the most of all right now in my world...the acclimation factor. bliss.

    k. back to acclimating upward. just sayin'...that's big stuff.

    I LOVE THE "HIGHTLIGHTS OF THE EXTRACT"....lol pilar! now that's just brilliant. how fun!

    Abraham on dreams

     


    Guest: My question concerns my dreams. I find myself over the last several years having.. mmm.. nightmare type dreams that I wake up screaming from though my life seems very plentiful and bountiful and I thrive in many areas in my life so I'm actually quite surprised about the fact that my dreams could be so… you know, scary, where I wake up screaming and so I'm wondering if you could help and I could get some clarity about them.

     

     

    Abe: The thing that we like the most about dreams is that they are indicators of a vibrational current that you've got going on.

     

     

    Dreams also remind us all how wonderful it is that you live in an environment where there is a buffer of time, where you can offer quite a bit of thought. You have a lot of leeway and that's why a person can say to us "I'm having dreams that are unsettling while my life is going okay." And we want you to understand that your dreams are a bit about what's down the road because your dreams are manifestations. Your dreams don't come to you as messages from someone outside of you. Your dreams come to you as indications of where your thoughts are and what those thoughts, if you maintain them for longer periods of time, are manifesting. Give us a little bit of detail about the dream. You say you wake up screaming. What's happening?

     

     

    Guest: Well, it's never the same one but it usually revolves around some sort of…… something, sometimes it's a person, sometimes an animal that is lookin' at me, really intently, and then there's some sort of recognition that there is, what I feel at the time, is some sort of evil in that other thing and then I get so terrified, or I don't know if it's terrified but I decide right then ….well the only way I know how to wake myself up out of this is to start screaming.

     

     

    Abe: All right, so now let's sort this out just a little bit because what most people feel is evil is another who has an intention that is different from your own, who believes that they have the power to enforce their intention, whether you're happy with it or not, IOW, it's that feeling of powerlessness. But if you're beating the drum of something, or if you are observing things going on around you, and it comes to your attention that there are others that profess to have power over things, whether you think they do or not, and they've worked very hard at convincing you and others that they have that power and the power that they seem to be exerting is not a vibrational match to what you want to have happen, but you don't have any means of making them stop it, and they arrogantly stand right in front of you and look right at you as if to say "This is what I'm gonna do and you can't stop me" That's why you are putting the label "evil" on it because it feels like it has a stronger power, it feels like it's bigger than just another person there. There's a whole current around it and your realization in your dream.

     

     

    IOW (In other words), you're not angry, you're not fighting it, you're not standing up to it, you're not defying it, you're not saying, "but wait a minute, you have no power in my experience". You're buying what they are saying. IOW, they are so sure that in their clarity, they are convincing you that you can't do anything about it That's what that dream is about and what we are talking about all day, everyday, in gatherings like this, is that no one has any power in your experience.

     

     

    There is a stream that you all have access to and your relationship to the stream is all your doing, so we look forward to the dream that you will have, not so far from now, where whoever that is, whatever it is , will stand there giving you that look - that I have power and I have power over you and I'm going to do something that you would not choose and you have no choice - and you will just stand and giggle at it. You'll just sort of laugh and say but wait a minute, I know about LOA and I know about my vibrational attitude and I know about the stream of well-being and I know who I am in relationship to it and I really don't have any connection with you and my withdrawing my attention from you is going to disarm all of this so that you can be out there doing whatever you want to do but its not going to have anything to do with me because I'm withdrawing my attention from you, and the reason I'm withdrawing my attention from you is because I got a real good look at you in my dream state and I didn't like what I saw. And since I get it that I create my dreams, then I'm going to uncreate you. I'm gonna take you out of my dreams, I'm writing you out of the script. I'm replacing you with something more fun, replacing you with something else. When you get it that your dreams are written by you, then you can just write them the way you want them to be. It helps to understand that.

     

     

    Now what we want you and everyone to understand is that everything is of your own making, that there are no good guys and bad guys, you are all good guys, standing in different places of defensiveness, which makes you call each other bad guys and as you use what others are doing as your reason for resistance, all you manage to do, the whole bunch of you, is point upstream and have a miserable time and then blame each other for your life not going better, but you can't sort it out, you cannot get to the bottom of any issue and figure it out, so finally what it comes down to is what you've got to accept that wellbeing is yours to be had and there's no monsters in the bushes that are not of your making, there is no evil that is other of your own making, there is no one after you that Is not of your own making and if they are showing up, then there is something that you need to do about it.

     

     

    Guest: you know, I actually understand that and that's why I find it …..mmmm… confusing actually that I'm having it in my dreams but I don't have those feelings at all in my waking life.

     

    Abe: Well, the thing….and that's really a good point. And this is the reason for that. Everything that you feel is about your vibrational relationship between where you are, the drum you are beating right now, and who you really are. Everything, everything you feel is about that. Everything that you live is about that. So a lot of people are not really sensitive to what they are feeling until it manifests. IOW, first there is emotion. If you don't notice the emotion, it gets bigger, then there is sensation. If you don't notice, then it gets bigger and there is physical discomfort that can actually lead to physical pain. So if you aren't aware that you've got this going on, then often you will have a dream that just points it out in more vivid terms.

     

     

    IOW, clearly there's something that is happening in your vibration that you're just not aware of because what you're saying to us is, "it doesn't feel that bad. My life's going pretty good," you say. And we say, we want your life to go better than pretty good. We want it to go really really well. We want you to not just get by, we want you to fantastically thrive. We don't want you to just sort of have an interesting life, we want you to have a vivid compelling life. We don't want you to feel okay in your body, we want you to feel vital and alive and exhilarated in your body. We don't want ideas to just interest you, we want them to captivate you and fascinate you. There is so much more for you to live. And because you're willing, and everyone is, you're willing to endure the discomfort of focusing upon things that make you feel bad.

     

     

    As you focus on things that make you feel bad, they're coming closer and closer into your experience and when they show up in your dreams, the purpose of it is to get your attention because your attention hasn't been gotten by your emotions. Most of you are sort of immune to your emotions unless they get really really strong. You're willing to be irritated, you're willing to be frustrated, you're willing to be overwhelmed, you're willing to be less than joyful, but it isn't until something in your dreams scares the fire out of you that it gets your attention and we say good for that dream! It got your attention.

     

     

    We love it when things show up in your dreams because they help you to realize that you've got vibrations going on that you didn't know you had going on before you had that dream. So when you have a dream like that, it's not saying that you've gone wrong. What it's saying is that you've got stuff in vibrational escrow, that for one reason or another, you're holding yourself apart from. A dream like that is an indication of the existence of resistance. So when you wake up from a dream like that and you acknowledge well, didn't know I had it, I acknowledge that I've got some resistance, now I'm going to start watching in my day to day conversations and thoughts with myself and others, what things sort of remind me of the feeling in that dream. What things remind me of that? And as you find yourself in the middle of something that feels like that, stop and say oh yeah, that's it, this is a point of resistance, Now here's where all my power is, IOW right here, right now is where I can choose to go this way or this way. That's all the power in the moment means. I can go against the flow or I can let myself go with the flow. Those are the only choices.

     

    [...]

     

     

    We love dreams. They are so full of information that you hadn't been able to see before you had the dream That's all they are. They are just exaggerators, they are enhancers, they are amplifiers. Your dreams of amplification of how you really feel.

    "It's ALL you can do. ALL the power that you have right now is: feel worse or feel better." (Abraham-Hicks - Asheville, NC - 10/22/06)

     

     

  • mmmmm. lunch! yummy! thanks, pilar :) and to the transcribers, of course. always. we'd have no piles of quotes to sort and sift without those that learn deepest and best by re-writing things out, and/or appreciate best by scattering what they love about!
  • (I'm filing this one that I sent yesterday here too :)

    ----------------------
    THE FOLLOWING ABE EXTRACT INCLUDES ESTHER’S RECURRING DREAM. (Was Esther’s dream of losing Jerry based on Law of attraction or Precognition?!)

    Guest What I want to ask about was free will. If you want something very much but it involves somebody else doing or being what you want them to be. I've been told that they have their free will and I cannot make them do or be what I want them to be. What do I do with the wanting at that point?


    I can give you the specific incidence. I've been in love with a man for a long time who wants to be my friend. We have a lovely friendship and I want to hold onto that at least but I really would like him to fall in love with me. [laughs] I can't make him do that. But the wanting is there and I think well maybe I should just want any man, some man and make it more general. I don't know. I mean are there rules for wanting?


    Abe: Yes. There is one rule relative to wanting and that is .You cannot want and flow energy towards the lack of your wanting at the same time and get what you want. In other words the rule …………..We'll say it again until you hear it………….The rule is you cannot focus upon what you want and the lack of it at the same time. You cannot want and attract to you what you want, when your dominant intention is toward the lack of it. In other words each time you notice that he doesn't love you, you are not thinking about him loving you, you are thinking about him not loving you.


    Each time you say , "he is my friend" that is positive energy, "but he is not the lover that I want" now you are flowing energy toward the lack of what you are wanting.


    Now there are a number of things that we want to say to you and we promise you that we will answer your question fully. But there is something that we want you to hear before we get into the nitty gritty of your question. And that is nothing outside of you ever keeps you from anything that you want . There's no outside influence that is as strong as your energy flow. There is no outside circumstance, there is no outside force. There is nothing in all of the Universe that is affecting your experience other than the way you are flowing your energy. So it's not the other person exercising his free will that's keeping you from what you want. It's you thinking about what you want and noticing the lack of it that's keeping you from what you want.


    In other words you are the only one who can shoot yourself in the foot.


    Physical beings have a difficult time with this initially because you are not accustomed to flowing energy. It is interesting, we watch you as you are physically focused and you are very good at monitoring your behavior and your actions. In other words you control rather well so that society wont tar and feather you. The action that you offer or the words that you offer in certain places.


    But you flow your energy all over the place as if it doesn't matter at all!!! When the only thing that is affecting you is how you are flowing your energy.


    Now we will give you an example of this. Esther kept having a recurring dream. For many years after she and her mate were together, she dreamed that she could not find him. She thought she knew where he was but she couldn't find him. She knew the number where he could be reached but when she would dial it, it wouldn't ring. Her fingers would punch right through the phone, the telephone would turn into cheese or something. Or it would ring it would ring and he couldn't hear


    It was just a variety of things keeping them from connecting. And when Esther started to interact with Abraham she said "Abraham is this dream about all that time before I found him?" "All these years I was looking for him and had not found him?"


    And we said No . Your dream is current, your dream is about your NOW!! And Esther said "What do you mean?" and we said in your wanting of this delicious relationship... Again we keep wanting to come back to every subject being two subjects. In your awareness of what you are wanting, you spend more time thinking about the absence of it. And when Esther thought about it she realized that was accurate. She worried that he would get run over. She worried that he would stop loving her. She worried that he would find someone he loved more. In other words, even though her very passionate strong ever present desire that this relationship would last forever. More than 50 percent of her thoughts were upon what would happen if it didn't. Because she didn't know about flowing energy. In other words she was still believing that it's about fate or chance or luck or circumstances. So she was feeling lucky that she had him, but not sure that she could hold onto him!! You see what we are talking about?


    And so when we said to Esther you have been projecting so much lackful thought relative to this relationship, your dream ………… your inner being is showing you a probable future where you won't know where he is!! A probable future where your negative lackful vibration is going to create something you do NOT want.


    So with this story we think you are hearing what we are saying. What you are wanting to do is as we said earlier several times today. You are wanting to think about this relationship that you want and feel good about it at the same time. So that instead of it evoking from you a yearning lonely feeling, you are wanting the thought of it to evoke a feeling of ecstasy , a feeling of empowerment . And when you are able to shift the way you feel about it, it is our promise to you, you will then allow into your experience that which you are wanting .


    Now this is the way that it works. Because you bring up a very good point. If I am the creator of my experience then is not every other person on the planet the creator of their experience? And what happens when two people want different things relative to the same subject? And we say if you will start talking about what you want and why you want it, you will get to the core of your desire and then you will attract it either from this one or you will reach right past this one and attract it from another . BUT EITHER WAY YOU WIN.


    Extract from Abraham-Hicks tape G-10/16/93

    ***************************

    Abe:

    Your work is not just to acknowledge what is probable.


    Your work is to set the tone to cause the probability and the outcome!!! You are a creator not an observer you see.


    Utilize your intuitiveness to anticipate and the advantage that you have………….and it is a big one. Most people have to wait for the outcome that they observe with their eyes before they adjust their vibration and then it's harder to do.


    If you are able to anticipate it in advance, and adjust your vibration, you can change the outcome.


    You could be on a plane that was doomed to crash. Pick up on it, choose a different thought, flow your energy, and change the outcome single handedly. We are not kidding you!!


    You could anticipate something happening in someone's life. Feel bad about it because you love them and don't want it. Fantasize something different and change the outcome.


    You could see a nation going in a direction you do not want . Feel bad about it, identify a desire, lie in your bed and change the outcome of it.


    You are a powerful creator.

  • A dream is a manifestation. Just like what you live is a manifestation, but a dream is quicker and easier to achieve, and not so troublesome if there's something you don't want.

    Abraham-Hicks
  • Jerry awakened from a very stimulating dream, and he said to Esther, "I just realized that I put the words in every person's mouth that was in my dream: If they're adoring me, I put those words there. If they're mad at me, I put those words there. I am the creator of every dream."

    And we say, you are the creator of everything. And when you realize that you are creating in your dreams, then you become even more aware that you can create your future experience, which will, almost as quickly as you know, become your now experience.

    You are the creator of your reality. But you do it from your powerful now, as you anticipate into the future.
