Hello New Abraham Friends,

It is so nice to find you all here!  I am new to the forum and thrilled to find a cluster of leading edge thinkers in one place!!

My story is really pretty amazing! I am looking forward to sharing it with you over time.  I look so forward to hearing your stories.  It is thrilling for me to hear about how we are all utilizing the teachings in an effort to bring ourselves and each other into alignment. 

I'll be brief, for now!

I was introduced to Abraham in 1988.  My husband heard Jerry and Esther on a radio talk show in Dallas, TX.  He was intriqued and ordered the 1st set of tapes.  He GOT IT!!  He GOT IT in such a big way that our life went into overdrive.  Business boomed, boats started showing up.  I could "sort of" talk the talk, but he had control of the Magic Wand. 

At that time, the wealth of information, recordings, books, website was non-existant. After 10 years of having the Midas Touch, he went into a funk and forgot almost everything he knew.  He left me out on the RAW AND RAGGED EDGE with no Wand of my own and no clear knowledge of how it all worked.  The boats went away, the business failed and we went through several very tough years just stocked full of nasty contrast.  Nothing ever felt right.

Early one morning almost two years ago, I was heading to Walmart to buy some flowers for my Daddy's grave.  On the way to the store, I got very emotional and started pounding the steering wheel.  I screamed out, "God, please teach me the rules to the Game of Life!"  It was more of a demand than a cry.  I remembered thinking that my husband (truly the love of my life) knew the answers at one time.  I remember thinking, I'm going to talk to him when I get home and help him to remember whatever it is that he has forgotten!

I went from one end of Walmart to the other trying to find something appropriate.  On my way to the register, I somehow got caught up in the book section.  I rammed my cart into the book rack.  There in front of me was THE LAW OF ATTRACTION, the Teachings of Abraham.  I made a mental note of the book and decided I would check Amazon, and it really didn't click in.  As I was struggling to get out of the maize, I rammed my cart into the book rack again.  This time the paperback version fell into my cart.  At that moment, I picked up the book and remembered the tree.  I opened it to the section entitled, The Rules to the Game of Life.  Needless to say, I bought the book and today I am on my way to mastering Deliberate Creation. 

I am admittedly an Abraham freak.  I attended 3 seminars in 2008 (San Diego in January, DC in May and Atlanta in October), and I'm looking forward to the next one in San Antonio.  I listen constantly, I read everything I can get my hands on, I go on Rampages of Appreciation every day and I regularly write in my Book of Positive Aspects.  I could go on, but obviously I am preaching to the Choir here.

…from my Journal

July 4, 2007  (reference is to The Wizard of Oz)

“Dorothy, what have you learned from all of this?” 

“I have learned that I owe it to my Inner Being to let it shine through me.  When I am connected to my Inner Being, all is right with my world.  The me that is God wants me to have it all.  In return, I will share my Bliss with the rest of the world.  I will help to reach into the hearts of my other Humans that are Being and help them to connect.  I never need to be afraid again.  I can set my vibrational point of attraction to have anything that I want.  Me having “everything” does not keep anyone else from having their “everything”.  In fact, by me having “everything” and demonstrating my wizardry with the Universe, I can help others by my example.  I have no reason not to share the wealth that I have found within myself.  I can get back to Kansas anytime I want to.  I CAN HAVE IT ALL!

I am quietly and joyfully anticipating the excitement of my world opening up to me.”


I will close for now.  I look forward to hearing your stories!!!  Thank you for listening to beginning of mine!!

Beautiful Abe admirer...warmest and loving welcome to the Forum. Thank you Dragonfly for your heartfelt and magical stories. I too love those very feel good thoughts from the Wizard of OZ. 


It is such a pleasure to meet you, and I look forward to reading more of your inspirational threads and posts.


Absolutely indeed, "There is Great Love Here for us."


So much love in abundance and kindness sent your way, Nana

Nana,

Thank you for your heart felt welcome.  I have been looking for a place where I can share in the excitement that I am experiencing with this knowledge (and application) concerning The Rules to the Game of Life!

I love Dorothy and her wonderful trip to the Emerald City where she finds out that she has the ability within herself to fullfill her desires!  When I was 10 years old, my Dance Teacher decided to do a play instead of the traditional recital.  I played Dorothy and danced my way to OZ with the rest of my rag tag friends who in the end found out that they were each worthy! 

Fast Forward 20 years....My husband meets Abraham and his 1st manifestation was a 1988 Olson 25 Sale Boat.  She was built for Racing, and handles like a race car.  Her name is OZ!

Nana, I can't wait to tell you the rest of my story.::lovenote ...and I am very anxious to hear more about you!

Dragonfly!

Welcome to the forum Dragonfly! Great story. I’m looking forward to reading more.

Jeanie and I listen to Abraham every day. We talk about the material every day. The messages of our culture are strong invitations to feel like a victim. I know all this stuff, but it is a constant meditation-in-action to apply it.

I was transferring a large amount of money (for me) a few days ago and a check was returned. I thought there was enough money in the account. The bank said, No. And they wouldn’t be able to tell me more until the next day.

I have payments I need to make. I was in pain. It felt just like the pain of an illness. And then I had a thought. If I’m really going to go with the idea that my thoughts create my reality, then I’m not at the mercy of the bank. I’m at the mercy of my thoughts (which for a moment felt just as scary).

And then I remembered the Universal Manager, a concept I had know about for years. Nice intellectual concept. Makes sense. But I had never really used it. I decided, my job was to know that I can get jaggedy around money, but that I also have no resistance to paying my bills. I appreciate that the bank is there to keep and lend me money. As long as I stay in a positive attitude, the Universal Manager will line everything up.

Wow, did my energy lift. I literally felt the problem was solved. Abraham will sometimes repeat, “It’s done.” (I think in the hope that if they say it enough times we might hear it.) I felt it. Wow, the power of consciously changing my thoughts. It was almost worth it to get into that panicky feeling to experience the power of my being able to get out of it.

It’s still not fully resolved, but it mostly doesn’t matter now. I don’t have to try to control it anymore. All I have to do is stay focused on having a positive outcome.

As you said, there are so many supports now. Even having studied this material for years, I can still go into a downward spiral around some issues. I can see how your husband could have “forgotten.” I’m sure he could still quote Abraham chapter and verse. What we “forget” is the process of taking the inner journey to connect that knowledge to the events before us, especially when things go out of whack.

This forum is a wonderful reminder. Welcome.

John

::heartsHappy Valentine's Day Dragonfly...360 days a year 24/7 ::hearts


Source sent you to the right place. Truly, Abe's forum is the only site where I feel good about all this. Like attracts like. It is another home of happy reminders or awakenings to all beautiful thoughts that are in hibernation or barely yawning.


"I am experiencing with this knowledge (and application) concerning "The Rules to the Game of Life!" Me, too. It is all about the learning process of feeling good. When out of tune...Abe's..."Rule(s)" of thumb: contrast-resistance-emotion is definitely like a ball game. The amazing buffer time to get right back into alignment and make that home run over and over again. A ball game is supposed to be fun. I'm still learning and will do so until the day I croak. All is really good. ::nod


Since childhood until now I love OZ. Dorothy in your recital was you Dragonfly. The Emerald City was secretly LOA behind the scenes. It is so delicious to  know that you have followed the sunny LOA road.::rainbow From dancer to dancer...I danced in the play The King and I...to the tune "Buddha make a Miracle." God-Source surely does and that times a gazillion. The song that sticks to my mind is, "Whenever I feel afraid, I hold my head erect and whistle a happy tune, so no one really knows I'm afraid."...me included. I just go on being twinkle toes.


::hearts::hugging::heartsIt touches my heart that you and your beloved husband share "together" the teachings of Abraham.


"Fast Forward 20 years....My husband meets Abraham and his 1st manifestation was a 1988 Olson 25 Sale Boat.  She was built for Racing, and handles like a race car.  Her name is OZ!" What a powerful manifestation & insight. This is soooo yummy good! I love the way happy vibrations of energy gets us what we want. Abraham has a wonderful sense of humor, too!   ::LOLI'm like a little girl in a candy shop with you.::stardustI love your stories...::stardustPlease continue...happily-excited, Nana

Welcome Dragonfly! My journey here went through the bible, the power of the subconscious mind, Edward Cayce, "What the Bleep", The Secret, Abraham. Abraham's reminding me of who I really am and why I am here is priceless. The teachings have catapulted me forward with great contrast and great growth! Its so good to not have to push back against ANYTHING. Its so good to know that everything is always alright!

I am so overcome with emotion, I can hardly contain myself!::LOL

What a happy Valentine's Day for me to find so many friends in one place who understand the omnipotent Laws of the Universe!  I AM an UPLIFTER! to the very core of my being!  I am also a Teacher!  and from what I am reading I am among teachers!

Dreamrose,

The book really did fall into the basket....or thrust itself there!  It was mystical and magic and my life has been changed forever because of it!  I had been studying The Conversations with God series, and it rocked me to my core.  It really helped me to release any fear that had been drilled into me by traditional religion.  My 1st time around with Abraham was kind of scary for me which made me resistant.  It was 1988 for goodness sakes.

I have so much more to tell you.  I hope you will keep up with me.  I really want to know more about you!  Your stories are very important to me!

John,

I was in quite a quandry this morning.  I was asking how can I get everything done. I have manifested a whole new deal for myself (OH, do I have alot to say!), but I am still so out of whack with how to get everything done that needs to get done.  I know my vibration is slightly out of alignment with the execution part of it all.  You brilliant co-creator....you start telling me about the Universal Manager process and reminding me to go back to the processes.  Oh, I Love the processes. 

I loved it when you said, "It was almost worth it to get into that panicky feeling to experience the power of my being able to get out of it."  We do have complete power and control of our experience.  We just tend to forget sometimes.  Let's be a reminder to one another that we create our own experience.

I was checking out this site when I ran across the following quote:

"We want to say to all of you: "How is it that you justify your
existence?" Or better said:

"By what authority do you ask for things to come to you?"

 
As Esther called on the telephone this morning and asked for some ice
We say to her: "And by what authority do you make this request?"

"Well, I am the person in the Penthouse" Esther said. (Laughter)
"...by that authority...or I am a person on the cruse ship, and by
that authority"

And we said... the answer that we want to hear from everyone, if they

hear the question:

"By what authority do you ask questions or do you ask service, or do
you ask for the improvement or do you ask for anything?"

We want your answer to be:

"By the authority that I am the Center of the Universe,
by the authority that I am Source Energy
and that All That Is seeks to answer the request that I offer".

 
In other words, we don't want timidness from you. We don't want
humility from you and we don't want servitude from you. We want an
understanding of your power and an unequivocal expectation of
resources to flow to you. And from that knowledge..oh! you serve the
world in a powerful way.

That is what you planned.

That, ...., is your destiny."
Hawaii cruise 2005

 

Don't you just LOVE this stuff!!!

 

Nana,

I look forward to dancing with you in my dreams!

 

Jerry,

Our quest sounds similar.  I believe the search is over.  I know that if you are like me, you now know that it was all worth it.  When I reconnected with Abraham it was like I had finally found my center.  Two years later, I am blown away daily by the little insights that I am gaining in the most suble ways.

 

Playful and Happliy Ever After... Thanks again for the warm, wonderful welcome!


I look forward to hearing more about each of you!

Welcome Dragonfly! I was attracted to your post because of your name. Dragonflies are my goodluck charm. Your post sure gave me goosebumps. It feels so good to know what we know. I absolutely loved your Dororthy excerpt from your journal! So poetic and beautiful. I'm so excited to co-create with you here on this forum.

I found Abe two years ago when I was still in highschool but I feel that I've grasped it the most only recently and my life has sure started to reflect my understanding. College seems more fun then ever now. All my friends are stressing about exams and here I am, going on rampages of appreciation for how freaking cool college is, lol. Much love to you and our continual exploration of the potential within each one of us and our own personal power.

Cloud of Euphoria,

Thanks for your warm welcome!

The North American Indians believe that we have animal guides or totems that hang out with us in the non-physical and guide us.  We can have one or many.  Some stay with us for a lifetime, others just come when we need some quality that they have to offer.  It is said that your totem will show itself to you.  You might find them gathered around you, for example.  I'm not Indian, however, the Dragonfly showed itself to me in a magical way.  It made me want to find out more about the lore surrounding this mystical creature.  That is for later!

You might google "Dragonfly Totem" and see what you find.

In the meantime...."May the Dragonfly bring the color and light of transformation into your life!" 

Cloud of Euphoria, do you really understand what it means to be where you are right now?  You stand resistance free going into your adulthood armed with the knowledge of the Laws of the Universe.  What a magnificent life you have ahead of you.  I really want to hear more of your story!

I am so happy to be on the forum with you guys!  I feel such appreciation for all of you! 

Leigh, a special Hello to you, too!

Dragonfly!

I think my parents actually wrote a book about animal totems...but my mom has this great animal totem book that I've flipped through before. I def feel that dragonflies show up in my life at times when I'm feeling great. I feel a similar connection to dolphins and horses, although I now knowing Abe I know that it is my belief in this that reinforces their presence in my life, but it's a great belief to have.

" You stand resistance free going into your adulthood armed with the knowledge of the Laws of the Universe."

You make it sound awe-inspiring! I love the way you phrased it. I've though about this a lot, and it is really amazing. I'm really beginning to grasp Abe's teachings and knowing that I can be, do, or have anything that I want while I'm in college is a fabulous combination. Not only that, but I just know that I'm going to get better and better at allowing and I figure by the time I have my own kids I'll be able to pass my knowledge on them effortlessly.

I'm also not worried about ending up with a job I hate or even getting a job out of college. But I am so excited to succeed in all the areas of my life that thrill me!

Most recently I wrote in a couple threads about how I manifested a trip to Ecuador for two weeks in January. My friend and I volunteered at a wildlife center in the Amazon for a class project we put together (we got college credit for it!!). But it was a long time coming: My mom was very adamant about me not going. In fact at times I was convinced I was not going. Up until about five days before my friend was supposed to leave, I became really deliberate about my thoughts, and I began to visualize until I felt the tinglings of knowing I was going to go. Well my mom happened to go out of town, I was inspired to talk to my dad, who agreed I should go. He talked to my mom and while there was some contrast at first, the next morning my dad woke up and told me my mom was going to let me go (positive vibes probably sank into her over the course of the night lol). And now, my parents are so happy I went. It was the most amazing trip, but even better, it was the first of my manifestations where I deliberately visualized and focused in a positive way.

I'm excited to hear more of your story. Everything you said about your husband was amazing and the whole "rules to the game of life" part!!! ahh goosebumps!!

Welcome, Dragonfly!!  I love your story so far...can't wait to hear more!  I am new to the forum, also, and quite new to the teachings.  But I too feel like I have been handed the keys that unlock all the mysteries I have ever pondered...or the rulebook to this crazy wonderful game of life.  I suddenly feel confident knowing that I can stop searching for the answers and start applying them!!!  I am glad to meet you and hope to see you on the boards =)

I'm ready to tell my story now:

When the towers fell on 9/11, it was easy for me to get sucked into all of that negativity.  We owned a retail decorating center that had a nice following of builders and designers, but the retail side had honestly always been a struggle.  My “Abraham Man” had been “dark” for awhile, and I was left with nothing but my insignificant action to push me through.   I consistently practiced what I now call “Just enoughness!” (“Oh, Dear God, please give me “just enough money to make payroll”, “to get through the week”,” to pay the Sales Tax”) … the feeling of lack was my constant companion.  We had lived years of magic and wonder.  Then, one year to day after the towers fell, we sat in a lawyer’s office and declared bankruptcy for the business.  At the end of the next year, we declared personal bankruptcy.  It was a very fearful time for me.

However, during that “nasty” time, I had built quite a little side business decorating Apartment Property Clubhouses, models and Senior Living Communities.  I was flying around the country working on really big projects.  That part of the business was just romping!!!  Of all the successes I have had in my career, the bankruptcy put a shadow over everything, and that is all I could see.  I have never felt so unsure of myself.  I was handling these huge projects and getting rave reviews, BUT!!!  I could not see that I had such great successes in the past and that the present (and future) was stacked up and pulsing.  

Just when I had had enough, THE LAW OF ATTRACTION – the Teachings of Abraham fell into my cart (see opening post).  When I got home, I dug through the drawers in the family room and uncovered the precious cassette tapes from 1988.  I carefully put them in the player and the familiarity of the voice and the message was instantly apparent to me!

I became a veracious student,  reading and listening all the time.  I started to do some of processes.  I found the website and signed up for the CD’s and intended to be more open (allowing) of the circumstances that presented themselves.  

After we closed the retail store,  I set up my office in this small studio that offered a buying service and receiving warehouse for Interior Designers and Decorators.  It was a fantastic service, but  totally underutilized by the design community.   In August of 2007, I got a call from one of the other designers.  Her orders were not getting processed, and she couldn’t get her questions answered.  I was caught off guard.  The owner of the studio had confided in me that his business was off, but I truly thought he had a handle on it.  The calls started pouring in.  It was obvious that this resource was drying up.  I quickly became the champion of the group.  

I would lie in bed at night and experience the energy swirling around me.  I “knew” what to do.  My husband “knew” what to do.  We were standing inside of our Vibrational Escrow.  We decided to rally the cause and open a Resource Center for Design Professionals.  We did not have any money to invest, and we had no possible way of borrowing money after the bankruptcy.  We did not even have a credit card, but we had a “knowing”! 

The Law of Attraction came to the rescue.  All of the sudden clients that I had not heard from in years contacted me needing furniture for this project and that.  A huge Retirement Community  that I had worked on in 2004 called me in to “finish the job”.  The other designers rallied with us, and we had enough $$$ to open  the major furniture lines that we needed to get us started all with paid orders.  We didn’t have a space yet, but I had a story.  My story was that we were opening a showroom with a warehouse.  It was going to be a “to the trade only” operation.  The designers were asking for it, and we were fulfilling that void.  We did it all on a Universal promise!  I knew to the depth of my beingness that I was a vibrational match to this business. My husband was right there with me, and we took a leap of faith! 

We found the perfect space in the perfect location with the perfect rent.  People came out of the woodwork to help us.  Everyone that walked through the door felt a “tugging” that this was someplace special.  It was so raw and so new, but it was budding with potential.

I called all of the reps before the doors were locked at the other business (around Oct. 15), and asked if I could grab the fabric swatches and finish samples.  Done!  Literally thousands of dollars in sampling that allowed us to move forward quickly.  We opened the doors in January, 2008 with red shag carpet in the front room and white walls.  The floors in the showroom area were this nasty, well worn fake wood laminate.  We really did not have the funds to change it out.  We were definitely fledgling!  The designers that knew us realized what we were doing and supported our efforts.  However, we HAD to announce our opening!  I kept repeating that we were not ready for the public yet.  We needed to make a really good showing, I argued!  Our carpet was on backorder and the place was not quite up to speed. The “pig” was still a “pig”, but I agreed to go forward with a small Open House on April 10th. 

I was in such a good place vibrationally.  We worked some magic in the showroom.  We had multiple furniture groupings.  A floral designer brought me $4000.00 in trees and floral arrangements on consignment.  We had art on the walls and a few rugs on the floor.  We were as ready as we could be!  I laid in bed that night and visualized all the people coming together with us.  The Reps that helped us with  their kind and generous donations, the designers who supported us with orders and encouragement, our friends who sat by in awe as we orchestrated this new venture.   We were walking downstream with the current helping to push us along as important individuals joined the group.  I was convinced that this effort was Inspired!   

A storm raged all night.  We got a call on one of the cell phones about 6:00am.  I didn’t get to it in time.  The number was odd.  I called it back and got a strange message.  I had a bad feeling!  I was in the bathtub when I got the absolutely devastating news from my husband.  THE ROOF WAS OFF OF OUR BUILDING!  We were hit with 85 to 90 mph straight line winds.  His words were “this is like a National Disaster area!  We are ruined”.  I was stunned.  I kept repeating “Go Downstream!  Go Downstream!  Go Downstream!!!”  I had had such a magical night visualizing all the people that had come to help us and remembered all the “stuff” that had gathered itself into storage then found it’s way onto our showroom floor.  This business was manifested completely out of our vibrational escrows.  The door had opened, and we were living it!  I kept reaching for a better feeling thought and reaching.  “OK, you don’t have all the answers right now.  Go downstream and wait for the unfolding!”

When I walked in the warehouse door I could see the sky over the showroom through the huge gaping hole.  Water ran down the metal beams leading back to the warehouse and was dripping everywhere.  What we did not realize at first was that every piece of furniture was covered securely with plastic.  The water was dripping onto plastic, and it pooled onto the warehouse floor and rolled away.  There were NO losses in the warehouse!  The floor was wet in some areas but every item was completely dry.

We quickly started pulling all of the furniture off the showroom floor.  All of the upholstery pieces in the showroom were dry with the exception of one seating area.  The wool rugs that were tossed around worked like channels to keep the water away from the other areas.  All of the artwork on the walls was dry even though the ceiling tiles were either ripped out or soaked through.  All of the fabric samples were dry.  Most of my catalogs were fine.  All of the florals arrangements were uncompromised.  The day was literally filled with miracles.  I kept uncovering one after another.  I stayed in a constant state of appreciation as I counted our blessings as we recovered our treasures.  In the end, the building owners insurance paid for all of the improvements on the space...new floors, new ceiling, new air conditioning units.  Our contents insurance paid for all losses (minor) and the Universe sent me a new laptop to replace my old one.  Not to mention, the Mohawk truck pulled up at 4:00pm to deliver our backordered carpet.  One of the workers  said, “Gee lady, I’m staying away from you.  You’ve got really bad luck.”  I said, “Au Contrair! I am the luckiest woman alive because I stood in the face of a disaster, and I went down stream!”

 The experience has changed me forever.  It could have very easily BEEN a disaster instead of a bed of miracles.  I now know what it feels like to “mold the clay”!  In that moment of truth, I am clear that the miracles appeared in the middle of the devastation because I reached for a thought that felt better. I now have command of my own magic wand, and I am preparing to use it in a really big way!

I am so happy with where I am, I am no longer concerned with or feeling any pain from how I made it here.  It really doesn’t matter that it took me 20 years to start to “get it”.  I can see how easy it is for people to just keep going through life on the same vibration…beating those same old drums.    I am so happy to be at the point where I can say that I appreciate the contrast that made me fight so hard to get where I am.  The contrast was so big and bad that it made me finally pay attention to my Inner Being.  The sign posts have been out there all along!

I  look forward to Co-creating with you as I stand in appreciation, enthusiasm, anticipation and, of course, expectation! 

There is Great Love here for US!

What a beautiful student you are, and how inspiring your contrast is.  I am off to get a massage now, and luckily (haha) I read this great story,...it will be good ideas for my meditation during my massage.
