 I had a fabulous, fabulous week all week last week on the Caribbean cruise. And so many wonderful things lined up for me and so many cooperative components fell right into place.

During the cruise Abe talked about REAL TIME. They described real time as when a problem presents itself, the solution is simultaneously available. Basically when you are the vortex predominantly, you have contrast which causes you to ask and pretty much immediately the solution becomes known to you too. It's sort of like magic. I lived in real time most of the week last week as I think many of us on that cruise did.

But I'm really inspired to relate the tale of the last day, my travel day, because it's so delicious and writing it is like reliving it. So enjoy...

It was the day we disembarked from the ship. My roommate and I had a late disembarkation time - 9:30. For those of you who haven't been on a Holland ship, the space everyone out so they assign you disembarkation time to everyone and space them out throughout the morning.

I figured that since our time slot was well past halfway into the process, many if not most of my Abe friends would be gone already by that time, so I didn't hurry.

I got my bill and found to my utmost delight that I had miscalculated how much they were going to charge me by oh, about $350! Yeah! My flight didn't leave until 8pm that evening, so I was hoping to find a Starbucks or someplace with free wifi to hang out for the day and catch up on my email.

We had a delicious breakfast in our room and I decided to take a quick walk around the Lido deck with the last 20 minutes. And low and behold, I seemed to run into Aber after Aber. The people I had been hanging out with all week that I was hoping to say goodbye to just popped out of the woodwork! AND I had invitations to hang out in Ft Lauderdale with some of them all day and someone who knew the area told me that the FLL airport has free wifi throughout, so no need for a detour! Sweet!

Ok, so ready to go, my roomie and I pulled our bags out into the hallway at the appropriate time. There were a few people I hadn't met up with yet that morning and I was thinking, wouldn't it be nice to hug Leslie before I get off? We turn the corner to get in the line and Ta Da! There is Lovely Leslie with good news for me!

Wonderful. Ok, so getting off the ship and heading through customs we connected with JoyousLadyJ and Mark & Jill & Gillian - more Abers who I found interesting and cool. We decided to all try and grab a taxi together to the airport until we realized that the line for the taxi's was over a block long and they were all waiting in the sun.

Hmm... Then Jill had a better idea. She had taken the rental car shuttle from the airport to the terminal - why don't we take it back the other way? Brilliant!

So we found the right area (no line) and hopped on the next bus and on the way to the airport, had a wonderful leading edge conversation sparked by the emotional intimacy question I had asked Abe. Delicious, leading edge Aber conversation - you can't ask for a better way to pass the time.

Finally we end up at the airport and have to part ways as we are all in different terminals. I mourned the loss of my Aber buds (briefly) and (out of lack, I admit) start scouring the crowd for anyone else wearing a vortex pin. No luck. I could tell I was looking too hard, so I just relaxed and decided to accept that the rest of my journey would be just me. Oh well.

I got into the terminal and realized despite our dallying on the way, I was over 8 hours early for my flight. I was still hoping to find some more Abers to have lunch with and spend some time with to wind down the weekend, still saw no one.

Now, my husband travels a lot and I had asked him before leaving home if there was a way for me to change my flights home (I was scheduled to leave FLL at 8pm to JFK and then spend 8 hours overnight at JFK, leaving on an 8am flight the next morning - not my preferred itinerary). He said that if I miss my flight, they will often rebook me on another one, but I could also try flying standby and just go straight to the gate of an earlier flight.

Well, why not, I thought? I grabbed some lunch and found an earlier flight on the board and walked over to the gate. The attendant there told me they'd put me on the list but the flight was overbooked and there was not a very good chance I'd get to fly and he'd have to charge me an extra $50.

Since I had just found out that I had way underspent on my budget on this trip, I figured that was a small, easy price to pay for the possibility of either getting home early or even just getting to NY early enough to make good use of an actual hotel room (which I suddenly felt I could easily afford also!). "Besides," I thought, "I know a few Abers in NY - if I get there early maybe I can arrange dinner with some of them." 

I didn't have anything else to do so I found a wall outlet, plugged in my phone and started editing my cruise photos on my laptop. It was fun, it was vortexy. I had a nice little chat with someone who had also just been on a Holland cruise on the Rotterdam.

I also ended up making tentative arrangements via texting with two other Abers to meet for lunch in another terminal - we all had late flights - but it meant I would have to go through security twice more so I let them know I wanted to see what happened with this flight first. And about 40 minutes before the flight I was hoping for I wandered back over to the gate.

Delta has these new LCD display monitors that hang above each gate and cycle through relevant information - the flight number and time, the number of seats booked, how many people have (and haven't) claimed their seat yet and the standby list by priority. And suddenly, I notice that MY name is #1 on the standby list!!! Wow, that's cool!

I started to get excited. Maybe I'll get on this plane after all!

They started boarding and finally boarded everyone in the line.
There were 6 unclaimed seats according to the board. Hmm... I heard the staff saying that another plane had just arrived late. Hey, a late plane means unclaimed seats, right?

I was still awed by my name being #1 on the list and I kept checking it as the screen cycled to make sure someone wasn't bumped ahead of me! And then 1 person runs frantically up to the gate and gets waved on. Another 4 run up and get on.

Five of those six seats are now claimed and I decide that the last person must be just behind them and so I decide it's ok, I don't mind. I'm going to be just as happy and vortexy hanging out here in the airport with other Abers in FLL as I would be in NYC. It's all good.

And then the guy behind the desk calls my name. I run over (just in case!) and he tells me I need to get on the plane ASAP and there is no time to charge my credit card so consider the standby fee on him. Wahoo!!!

Not only am I on the plane, I'm on the plane FOR FREE! Grinning like a cheshire cat, I take my seat and didn't even have time to text my friends that I won't be joining them after all before they closed the cabin doors. It's ok, I think. They are go with the flow kind of people. I sit and enjoy the fun and brilliance of the ocean out my window as we take off. Aahhh... this is the life. 

Who else could be as lucky as me, huh? So I get to New York and turn my phone back on and text my buddies back in FLL that I've landed in NYC and tell them how amazing my manifestation was. And the response I get is that not only am I in NYC, two of them are too! And it hadn't even been on one of their stops list! LOL! We were all in the air and landing about the same time. What a day, huh?
::LOL

But wait... it gets better.

So, I get off the plane and figure hey, it worked once, why not try the standby thing again? I check the boards and find the next flight to Seattle and head over there. No one is at the desk yet, so I grab a muffin and play with my computer a bit, call my hubby to let him know my plans might be changing, etc.

Finally the attendant shows up at the desk and I tell her what I'm trying to do. She says the flight is overbooked by 8 seats and there is already a standby list of 5 people, so not to hold my breath, but if I wish, I can hang around the kiosk anyway. And if I do, by some miracle, get on the flight, she'll have to charge me $50.

I asked her if she needs my name or my boarding pass. No, she's not even going to put me on the standby list - that was how strongly she believed there was no way I was getting on that plane!!!

"Hrrumph. Well, if you want to be like that" I started thinking, which subsequently led to a string of non-vortexy thoughts about how rude New Yorkers were and how hurried and thoughtless and funny their accents sounded, etc! I even started finding evidence of their awfulness all around me in my fellow passengers! Man, LOA is utterly consistent!

I hung out in that space for a bit, trying to sooth myself with the thought that I could just leave right now and grab a hotel and still have a good time tonight. The fact that I had the option helped a bit.

They started boarding and I went up to the desk again to ask if I wanted first class and would pay for the upgrade (see, I was feeling super prosperous having just 'discovered' $350 still in my account!), would that make a difference? No, it wouldn't, and furthermore, I couldn't get the upgrade anyway because of the class of my ticket. Well, did they want my name now so they could at least put me on the standby list? No, they still didn't want my name.

"Grrr... You know what? I don't have to get on this flight. I have friends here I want to see and hang out with." I decided to be ahead of the game and text them to see if they were available.

"Hey slowjam! Guess who's in NYC? ME!"
LOL I had fun with that. I didn't get a response back right away though. The terminal was full and most of the seats taken, so I had moved to the floor behind the desk, sitting pretty much next to the boarding lane where that woman was now checking people in. That unhelpful, young woman... Grr...  and then...

...I had an epiphany. I had thought that the soothing that I needed to be doing was soothing myself in case I didn't get on the flight and knowing that I had good options. But what I realized was that I was using HER and her behavior as my reason to be outside the vortex and it sucked being outside the vortex!

"Ok, maybe if I can just see her in a better light, just attempt to see her as Source sees her."

One of the things that hit me on the cruise was a story that John Wang told about an experience he had of suddenly and fully knowing he was the universe and nothing was separate from him, and I was inspired to see myself and how me is connected to Me/my IB and my IB is also a part of the bigger consciousness and my IB is part of her IB and so she is part of me and I had this wonderful feeling of suddenly being totally cool with her and supportive of her, and with all the other (previously perceived as obnoxious) New Yorkers in the terminal.

I started to look around me and exactly where I had seen annoying people, I saw powerful independent people. Exactly where I had seen small minded, boxed in people I saw people loving their little corner of life and milking it. Exactly where I had seen rushing people in a hurry to get no where really important, I saw vortexy people making things happening and so eager they were bouncing off the walls practically.

Ta da!!! So wonderful! I was literally getting teary-eyed from the deliciousness of the shift, from the relief and the new wonderful understanding that what I wanted wasn't getting on this plane, what I wanted was this new perspective, this new Source eyed view of the amazing people and energy I was surrounded by!

It was so good. It was really good. I played with that feeling a bit for a few minutes, letting it wax and wane and purposefully goosing it up to be sure I could.

And was suddenly inspired to take one last look at the board (to see if they had magically figured out my name and put it on the standby list) and then to head off to a nice hotel and my beautiful Aber friends who I could continue to contact on the way out.

Nope, there were still 3 names on the standby list and none of them were mine.

As I stood up and started to pack my bag, the woman looked at me, then looked away, then looked at me, then looked at her computer screen. The line to the door was empty, they must be close to finished boarding. And then she called out and pointed at me - "Go up to the desk and have her put you on the list".

Hmmm... Not 100% sure what that meant, but I was curiously hopeful. Would they really let me cut ahead of the other people waiting on standby?

I went to the desk and talked to the other woman there - she was talking to someone else at the same time but managed to understand that I wanted to get on the plane on standby. She asked for my boarding pass and continued her other conversation. The next thing I know, she says "Here's your new boarding pass, you gotta run. Go. The $50 fee is on me this time."

::LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL

Ecstatic, I ran down the gangway and filled the last seat on the plane just in time to hear the pilot giving his announcement about our flight. And when he ended his spiel with "Enjoy the flight" what I heard was "Be in Joy on the flight".

And I was.

Rebecca,
I made a pdf of this because I KNOW it's great because you wrote it! It's even later here than it is there. I did read the part about real time. My answer NOW is sleep! Thanks for this fabulous report!

Mr. Jam's heart leapt into the sky when he got your text.

"How wonderful life is when you're in the world."  E.John


And, ya know, sometimes it's fun to run for planes, knowing it doesn't matter if you get on or off!  I frequently zig zag like Harpo Marx on the ocean liner in "Monkey Business."  Enough to make the children laugh but not enough so Homeland Security thinks I'm a nut.

I am flattered and pleased and touched that you thought to buzz me, and glad it worked out! But it always does, eh?

XOXO

What a wonderful story, Rebecca!?
 
I loved your shift to the Source perspective! It's so free & expansive... and the great thing is as Esther says, once you've experienced it, you cannot go back and be happy! :)
 
Thanks for inspiring me to join the Abe forum too.

happygrl,
I posted my question and the notes from it here: http://www.theabeforum.com/forum3/16332.html.

Yeah, John! So guys, the new member right above this post, AppreciateNow, is the John who told the story that I was talking about which inspired me there. He told some of his own stories the last morning to a small group of us and had everyone at the table crying with joy!

The link RR left immediately above works, if you take the period off the end of it and paste it into the URL field yourself. Otherwise, the period throws it off.

Beautiful story, Rebecca! Every one of us practicing our alignment can relate to your out-of-Vortex moments/thoughts and especially your purposeful practice of alignment. And of course the fun manifestations resulting from coming into alignment!

This came to my mind earlier today as my truth (deep inside of me -- I am feeling it and knowing it stronger than ever!) what Abraham spoke of on the Mexico Cruise. And when I read your lovely description of being an example of living this alignment and being a teacher -- I again was hit with these words from Abraham. And today for me these words are lighting up my soul even more because this is what I see all of us doing on this lovely Earth journey and its so beautiful. And it is so lovely to have other Leading Edgers to share the beauty of it all with...

"You are going to find yourself teaching without anyone asking for a classroom. You’re going to find yourself understanding without anyone really verbalizing a problem. You’re going to find yourself vibrationally speaking, knowing from inside your vortex, what it feels like to be tuned in to Infinite Intelligence. Solutions are going to flow forth to you, more emphatically than you’ve ever experienced before. And you’re going to find yourself often standing as very clear-minded beings amidst others who are standing in a place of somewhat confusion. And you’re not going to feel uncomfortable in your leadership.

As you hear people complaining, you won’t take their complaints to heart at all, but you’re going to feel a solution forming within you and words to back up the solution and you’re going to find yourself telling people what you know on a more consistent basis, without offending them.  Because you’re not going to be considering their point of view and your point of view at the same time. You’re going to be speaking profoundly from your point of view. In other words, one who is connected to this Source Energy, one who is flowing with the stream, from inside the vortex, is more powerful and more influential than millions who are not.


<snip>

What has happened in this time that we’ve been together, and even though we can speak it and you cannot, and we can feel it, and maybe you are getting some of it. Over the days that follow you are going to feel the profound meaning of what we are offering here, because you have managed to activate an inside the vortex vibration with enough consistency and frequency that your point of attraction has shifted dramatically. And the lives around you which you call physical manifestation, and we call manifestational indicators of vibration, are going to show it.

So hold onto your hats. And get ready to feel the celebration, many times in every day, of your new-found freedom, your new-found absence of resistance. There could not be greater love or appreciation focused at you, than now. There could not be more recognition of the worthiness of that which is you, than that we feel here and now. And there could not be more eager anticipation for the manifestation that, by Law, MUST follow as a result of what you have accomplished vibrationally as a result of this gathering.


Much Love


Suzi :kiss:

Thank you for your story, RR.

I haven't flown in over a year.

I leave for California, at the end of the week.  Family stuff.

You helped ease some of my anxiety, around this trip.

I can create exactly what It Is, that i desire.

I've been prepaving it.  (Like my suitcase fits and all, whatever my anxious thought is, I change it.)

You have helped me to b3 able to notch it up a bit.

Thanks.

Leigh
