Here's a link to the page that got us prepped for this:

http://theabeforum.com/view_topic.php?id=17606&forum_id=8&jump_to=251448#p251448


And here's the link to buy the DVD.
http://www.abraham-hickslawofattraction.com/lawofattractionstore/product/DVD-TAR.html

I think we'll focus on this DVD for a month, then move on to something else.

And here is a suggested schedule:

Week one--watch and comment on:
  • Opening Titles 1:14
  • Your Vibrational Escrow 6:56

  • Week two--watch and comment on
  • Pre-Croaking Alignment 11:04
  • The Big Picture 13:42

  • Week three
  • The Time of Awakening 10:50
  • The Value of Diversity 17:36

  • Week four
  • A New Vibrational Paradigm 15:12
  • Closing Titles 1:17

  • And something I've done with another teacher is watch the same video daily for a week, at different times of the day.  See if that resonates for you. Post if you want to, daily or whenever.


    July!  Let's see what happens!
    xoxo

    Also, if you want to get started right away, here's a clip from the video:

    This one is "A New Vibrational Paradigm" which we would study in the fourth week, but that's fine! Let's just jump right in!

    WOW. wow wow wow wow wow wow wow. It's so good. It's just SO GOOD.

    I'm so glad I started this thread, and had the inspiration to post that video. It's amazing. First, the therapist is simply wonderful. I've met her, actually, she gets in the hotseat a lot.  Here, it's clear that she is applying Abraham to her work with kids and it's working beautifully.

    A paraphrase of what spoke to me:  (and this is how I suggest we 'quote' from the DVD, just by writing down as best we remember, what we heard. Kind of what Sheer Luck Holmes did in this lovely thread:
    http://theabeforum.com/forum2/18044.html

    And maybe we'll study that DVD next!)
    "You all communicate vibrationally.  It's not words.  And what if these children are not flawed, but are advanced and are here to teach us something about communication."

    What a wonderful new paradigm.

    I feel such relief. RELIEF! Just for myself. On a topic totally unrelated to children,  but I feel better nonetheless.

    Life is so good.

    I'm getting ready for the Alaska Cruise so I don't know how much more I'll post this week.  So, I just want to share some notes I took watching the beginning of the DVD earlier this week: 
    1. Our goal is pre-croaking alignment::LOL
    2. IF we think our prayers are not answered - in your quest for solutions you beat the drum of your problems for TOO LONG.  Instead of asking "where's my stuff", we need to point attention in the direction of what is becoming.

    I have been so keenly aware lately of the social capital given often for beating the "what is" drum.  I get sucked in more often than I would like.  I am getting pickier and pickier about what I say and what I listen to.

    This feels so good to me to hear and consider as I look at my kiddo. That the autistic ones are not flawed, but *advanced* and here to teach us something about communication.

    My little one is so plugged into me and aware of my vibration; has been since the get-go. He is my instant -Abraham-reminder to stop, be aware of what I'm feeling and vibrating and if I want to feel better, reach for thoughts that'll help me get there. I've been overwhelmed with that kind of attention, but it feels better to think that he came here for many reasons and one of those reasons may be to help me get into my Vortex sooner. And to live more self-aware (rockets been going off on that for years). I just got a wave of he is the wise one reminding me/gently guiding me, then I'll show and live by example and he won't have to 'unlearn' anything.

    Now if I could just hang on to this warm, Source-infused feeling when he's looking at us and yanking on the cat's tail or banging some toy on a table. ::devil

    JV! Great post! And what you just said--how to maintain that Source-like point of view when our children are not 'behaving'--THAT IS THE WORK!!!

    Abe from The Vortex CD(paraphrase): "The 1-2-3 of child-rearing--He's perfect as he is and becoming more. It is my job to work around whatever he does in my mind so that I am okay with it. It is not his job to please me."


    Or as I just heard in part one of the Autistic Revolution DVD--Even if what we are seeing is clearly 'wrong' --when we use that as an excuse to feel bad, we are seeing it differently than Source, and that's why we feel badly.

    Our kids are here to teach us unconditional love. Can we love them even when they are being 'rotten?'. Abe said to me once, 'When they are being rotten, that's not who they really are. Look over there (in your Vortex) where they REALLY are.'

    And we get to practice this NOW when the 'transgressions' are relatively harmless! Think about how well we'll do when they are teenagers, if we figure this out now!

    I am loving this study group, because I jus had a massive Aha! For myself from watching the intro to the video--the opener.

    I GET IT. Enjoy the IDEA of the new manifestation, before it has manifested! That is such a delicious time! It is actually THE MOST EXCITING time! Because by the time it manifests, it's Old News! It's the Next Logical Step. It is No Big DEAL by the time it is manifested.

    So that moment of THE IDEA- the exhileration of that, THAT is the thing to celebrate and savor!!!!!

    I LOVE THIS!!!!! I really HEARD it today!

    Something about having a study group makes me listen more carefully to the DVD (or the book as in out MLOA book study group) and leads to these lovely breakthrus. So thanks, guys!

    And Molly! Have a fantastic time on the cruise!!!!!! Enjoy your week of Pre-croaking alignment!!!!!::devil
    and Evey--thanks for stopping by the thread and quoting me!!!::LOL

    Was watching the paradigm shift segment and afterwards I was so upbeat! I realized I was feeling energized and hopeful and happier than I had in weeks. I don't know what thoughts I was thinking, I just know I felt better about ..things.

    Since we've gotten our autism spectrum diagnosis, I'm in the process of seeing this from as positive a point of view as I can. But with less upset...just going with my emotions...

    This morning, after seeing my 4 year old push the cat to the floor (again) - cat slowly gets up, he pushes her to the floor (more or less gently). I tried to reason with him, appeal to his empathetic nature (which is in there somewhere I'm guessing..hoping), and asked him how would it feel if mommy pushed you to the floor, you try to get up and mommy pushes you to the floor. Would you like that?! And my little guy jumps up, enthusiastic and smiling huge and says YES! push me to the floor like that! So I did (very gently mommy version) and he did an exaggerated splat! And I just had to laugh.

    I thought - autistic traits is just one part of my child. He is so, so much more. It does not define him (even if it was a socially accepted, regarded as a completely wonderful thing), it is just some of who he is (hmm like 'mommy' is just some of who I am). I want to find a way to communicate more from where he is....for us to meet half way if we can. He and I have that mommy-child shortcut language, which is less words and more....vibration. YAY! That forces me (easier word ...how about encourages) me to come from my center, and know what I am vibrating. Show up fully. Be authentic. That used to be a concept I talked about - but now I really know what that means for me.

    Everything about mommyhood (for me) is about reaching deep and finding different ways to be creative, to see from the other's perspective, to appreciate beyond my comfort zone-what I usually appreciate. With autism, I just get to 'crank that up a notch'.

    I love how watching Estherham on DVD rocks my world vibrationally just as going to a workshop would. Maybe even more, because it's more intimate.

    Just riding the happy, content, eager wave from having a wonderful holiday yesterday and watching our first fireworks outside with our son - he was so happy and running around and full of energy. Fireworks, he was over it after about 5 minutes but he loved that freedom and something new.
    I had pre-paved the place I wanted to go to watch fireworks, and just an hour before my partner looked on the internet and ended up choosing a place that was perfect to me. Open, short drive from home, easing parking by the car. Great view. Just perfect. Wow, when I be easy about it and let it go, the Universe DOES give you even more than you desired. ::cool

    Love is...

    Have you noticed Abraham will speak about Autism and Gays often in the same sentence? ::devil

    I used to post on another forum for women who realized their different than heterosexual feelings well into their marriages (there are many of those...lol) and I started to notice how many posted that they had a child with some sort of autism. I never mentioned it on that forum but i remember thinking...wow, this is remarkable, i thought autism was pretty rare...and here it was mentioned so often in this forum by women who were discovering their unstraightness.

    Evey darlin', are you trying to tell me something? ::LOL

    I haven't noticed Abe talking about homosexuality and autism, but I haven't listened to workshop recordings for 2-3 years now. Guessing their point is the diversity and how diversity is the bomb-diggity. ::devil

    ::LOL::LOL...! I dont know...lol does it resonate? (i kid!) ...it can kick in sorta later...i am just sayin' (i totally kid) but it is true...lol

    Regarding Abe...

    I think they way they mention both in the same sentence (i have noticed it several times on youtube clips)..usually because I am interested in the sexual orientation part of it, it they say, "more of you are  coming back gay or autistic" in terms of choosing to come in a way that no one can change you no matter how hard they want. I use to think it interesting, to me, it was putting being gay in the same sentence of what i saw as a lack of wellbeing as in a disease, but now I see how Abe does not see autism as that at all!

    Evey,
    Hey, you never know. ::devil  I'll just let life unfold for me and we'll see how it goes.
    *******
    Autism. So wondering what everyone's take is on what Abraham says it is, how they define it?

    Gotta say I'm seeing how all this is opening me up to being more accepting of all perceived 'disabilities' our brothers and sisters may have in this physical. The brave souls that choose to be born with different challenges. It's good to be a part of that expansion.

    I am loving this discussion.

    Sexual orientation and autism--it makes so much sense for them to go together. 'it's just the way they are.' autistics teach us all that it is okay for us to be how we are.

    I skipped forward to the first question in the video, and that dad asking about his son was so moving. Abe said, the thing your son wants you to know is 'It's Okay.'

    That feels like such a relief to me. It's okay. It's okay.

    It is okay. It is Okay, It is OKAY.

    I needed to know and FEEL this myself today.

    Sometimes this stuff bring me to tears.


    I will write more soon. ::hugging to all of us.

    my friends, would you mind if we didn't refer to little ones (and grown-ups) who fall on the autism spectrum as "autistics"?

    is this because of our recent ASD (autism spec disorder) diagnosis and remaining sensitivity I have about it. maybe.

    is this because this is one of countless traits a person on the spectrum has and not all of who they are? yes, maybe.

    within me~~ if we can say autistic and have the same emotional response as when we describe my son as ~curlied haired and big brown-eyed, and bright, and aware and sensitive and funny, and beautiful.......when I can get to the place where I feel the same surge of okayness and even pleasure when I say autistic as when I say bright and beautiful....well, I will be on my way.
    Cuz I'm not talking about those other people, I'm talking about the little love of my life that came outa my belly. When I can feel absolutely no guilt or sadness about the autistic traits as I feel no guilt about his beautiful brown eyes - then, oh then I'm truly flowing in my stream of well-being.

    I hope you hear what I'm saying from my heart, and don't take offense. If you do take offense, I understand...and still hope you don't.

    Much love...much love,
    Joyful V::hearts

    It is alright by me. Let us know what term feels good to you. A lot of people dont want the term "homosexual" and prefer gay or lesbian for women. I know a lot of women who would say, yes i love my girlfriend I love kissing her and **** but i am not gay. (LOL!!!) I on the other hand, when i discovered this amazing thing about myself, went on a dance rampage in my house saying out loud and jumping up and down, OMG i think i am gay. I think I am a lesbian. I am a lesbian. I *am* a lesbian! (lol). That was the first time i found myself having feelings of being in love with a woman. Ever. And i remember thinking to myself, i am not damaged after all. I am not broken. I remember looking in the mirror at myself and thinking, I am beautiful and i am not broken and I am a lesbian! Of course she fell in love with me too, how could you not when you are so full of discovery and re-remembering who you were meant to be.

    I think you son will feel that too when he feels that he is exaclty as he meant to be...I think whatever you can do to feel good about terms used to describe your son is a good thing. When you embrace it and fall in love with, with all its brilliance, you will experience something amazing.

    Wow I just saw a clip of a young man who teachs "A" children and Abraham is so amazing. Abraham calls them "teachers of unconditional love" and "teachers of freedom" and go on to say that we all come here with a FULL VIEW of our physical bodies before we come so no one comes here to be trapped into a body that they dont want to be in, no exceptions!

    ::wow:beautiful:::wow

    I have been thinking a lot about myself and how is it that i found out much later about myself and it is as if i had been built with a timer when this AMAZING thing inside clicked in and turned on and it feels like it was done on purpose (prior to coming here) and it has taught those very VERY close to me (including myself) what unconditional love really is. IN other words, i think my sexuality really did shift and became something else, sort of like a tight bloom softly opening all driven by time.

    Reminds me of night blooming water lillies...they open when the sun falls down.
