Wow! I just watched the entire DVD yesterday and got caught up on this thread today. Thank you Leslie and Sandy for being such brilliant examples of the DVD.

Thank you for being powerful deliberate creators remaning true to yourselves and not conforming to what anyone else thinks or believes. Thank you for showing us such a clear example of our unique, individual perspectives and that every one has an amazing voice and viewpoint.

Thank you for allowing us to appreciate the diversity and variety that exists even on this Abe Forum dedicated to the teachings of Abraham. Thank you for being honest, open and most of all - THANK YOU FOR FEELING!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for feeling and expressing your emotions, especially the negative ones! I love that I can feel anger or rage or powerlessness. I love that I can cry and scream and roar at the world. I love that I can FEEL!

I also love that Abraham has reminded me what all of those feelings mean. I love that I can make peace with where I am - which often means digging deep into the feeling place and wringing it dry until the cry of my soul is, "I JUST WANT TO FEEL BETTER!!" It's the dark night of the soul that lets you know that feeling good is the MOST IMPORTANT THING!

I love knowing that when I get there - to the bottom of the feeling - I know there is only one way to go - UP - often ZOOMING UP, not stopping along the way, but gleefully, joyfully, quickly, with freedom powering my sails, I run into my Vortex and shout with joy, "I'm home, I'm home, I'm home."

Hi Joyful Vibe; I undersstand where you are coming from. I have posted on here in a highly distressed state, seeking help because there was no where else for me to go. I was shocked by some of the replies I received and fully got the message that I would get a match for my vibrations, rather than a helping hand up the scale if I did that, so I wouldn't do it again, it wasn't fun. although a couple of people did give me an Abeish and loving hand and they stick in my mind to this day. I was very grateful. If I feel really angry and upset about anything now, I go elsewhere for a help in finding relief, and save the forum for my good moods LOL. And to be fair, we are asked on signing up to post in postive terms, and too much angst from too many posters might drag the overall tone of the forum down.

I would just like to say that my little boy has been somewhat of a handful and I have worried from time to time there might be something going on with him, and I hear the worry in your voice about whether he is going to be OK.

He is probably far better not having any kind of label, but being given the benefit of the doubt that he may rise amazingly to the challenges in his life and be the miracle you would like him to be.

However, for the purposes of this thread, it is difficult to discuss the topic without using the A word. I would just use it for general guidance and help. However, is it possible for you to free your son from having the label, and once again think of him as the whole, many toned, complex being that his is. He's a holistic being, not a person on a linear spectrum of socialisation that is after all created categorised and named by us. Other than that it doesn't really exist, except as a way for us to try to understand our differences. What is normal?

Also Leslie I understand the challenge you have as the moderator. Its like being the head prefect and having to keep things in line when sometimes it would be more fun to play, and also having an important job to do that obviously requires a lot of work. You are great at organising new ways to practise the teachings, and motivating the practise. Thank you for starting up the A thread. It's good to be reminded that Abe sees it from a completely different perspective than the education or health systems we have developed, where it is not so much on the leading edge.

If I am going to label my little cat tail pulling, throwing things on the ground hellraiser who is frequently incredibly delightful and angelic; then it will be with positive labels, like bright and brilliant and mischievous and growing up in his own sweet time. He used to pull the cats tail when he was four, but he doesn't do that anymore. He actually loves the cat to bits, he just wanted to play with her when he was little but was too quick and busy for her, and so she always tried to run away, and he loves a challenge.

My libra self wants to bring everyone together and make everyone feel ::hearts and they i remembered that is the OLD M.O. which is not only completely unnecessary (All is Well), it only pulls me apart to try. ANd it does not work that way.

::LOLI love that we have new posters here on this topic. I love that this is not the easiest topic and yet we have eagerness and focus to tackle with the intention to close the gap.

I am also filled with appreciation for the MODS. Because if feels like an unselfish job to me. You risk losing your pure connection from where you are to help peeps move up the scale before they are ready or wanting to. As you reach toward them from where you are, toward where they are...(something Source wont even do), you sometimes manage it and sometimes not but it is never worth it. I think others in between do a perfect job. So i am showing appreciation right now...::hugging. See, i am doing it too ::devil, right now i am now vibing the frustration mods must feel too. ::devil. The way Abe would guide me is to see step one moments as GOOD, which is easy. They are just rocket moments. Expansion for the individual is a personal free choice.

Step 1 is good...::devileven better if i am not doing it ::devil. I dont have to look at someone's step one too long. I can choose to see the expansion part of the IB instead. I can know all pain is self-imposed (but not a big deal--it inly means the potential for equally intense JOY is there). ::devil I did plenty of step 1 in my younger years, why should i keep anyone else from their. If i notice their step ones too long, i dont do them any service. If i notice MY step 3 and keep focus there...i do anyone in contact with me a great service (although that is not the point).

I am feeling better already. I am appreciating everyone and everything here. All is well. People who do step one moments here often are my biggest teachers. I just have to keep THAT in mind. ::flowers::hearts

Hey everybody.....just wanted to say that when posting you don't really have to avoid using the word (even though I was feeling not strong about this one day and posted a request to say it a certain way) autistic or any variations.

Autism
Autistics
on the spectrum
A's

I've even in conversation said - 'I don't know if that's typical 4-year old little boy behavior or if that's autistic-y'.

I've moved up the 'grief scale' on this diagnosis. I'm in acceptance, and I know I'm on my way to celebrating it.
I've been living with my son for 4.5 years and you begin by noticing where they are struggling and things that seem different from other kids. So I've had all this time to already know him and know (well, figure it out through trial and error) what things to avoid, what things to alter, what things to transition to slowly, slowly, what things to communicate for him, what things I need much more know-how and education on. I'm just a mom. I'm not a nurse nor a special needs educator.

To really know what autism is I'm seeing it's best to talk with those who have studied and worked in the field and worked with these kids. I hear more and more how those who work with kids get opened to an incredible experience and a perspective beyond what we can imagine.

Autism is so very nuanced - everyone diagnosed with it has it differently. I'm am out of my mind grateful for the professionals who have started to work with me and my son. There's is actually an overwhelming amount of services and places that can help us and people everywhere who want to help.

The world IS opening up to other ways of communicating. I see nothing but incredibly wonderful things ahead for me, my son, our family and all of us who are open to ...becoming more.

I've googled Autism and Spirituality and there's even been some writing about that.

I appreciate how Abraham has helped us see the beauty and even advanced nature of anyone....blessed to be noticed as being autistic. We want to help them communciate and have friendships and we also want to communicate more how they do. More vibrationally, less dependent on words.

Much love to everyone who's posted. I learn (or remember) more about mySelf through all of you, through every interaction I have. You give me back to mySelf. :beautiful:

:kiss:

Hi guys! I love you. Sandy, you know I love you, and I know you love me, and it's all good, and we are all in this together!!!!!!!!
I love coming to this feeling! It is okay for both of us to be how we are! It's all good!!!

Okay, so I watched the DVD again, and what came out for me this time was so wonderful.

1. Parents think it is our job to teach our children how to be disapproved of by the least amount of people possible. LOL!!!!!

How crazy is that?! But I understand exactly what they mean by this! And it is such a relief to let it go. My children get to have their own experiences in the world. I don't need to control it. (Duh! I CAN'T control it, so let go of the oars and let the stream carry you, Leslie!)

I saw something beautiful the other day. I was in a busy toyshop with my kids, and my daughter was trying to put a box back up on a high shelf. She was too short to push it all the way up, and it looked like it was going to fall down on top of her. I was too far away to help, and also, I wasn't worried about it falling, if it did. I was just watching to see what would happen.
Another mom walking by,without fanfare, just gave the box a little shove so that it was solidly on the shelf, and kept on walking without acknowledgement. And my daughter just moved on to the next toy to look at, not really knowing *how* she had been helped. she wasn't "grateful" or anything--it was like 'I wanted to put the box on the shelf, and there it is on the shelf, and everything always works out for me."

I started to cry with the beauty of it! I thanked that other mom in my heart. It reminded me of this DVD that said, there will alwYs be people there to help your children if they are in alignment.

Aaahhhh.

Okay, that's all I want to post for today. I will save 2. for another time!

HI Leslie!

I'm actually going back off the boards. Felt inspired to watch the DVD and post when I did. Thank you for suggesting this DVD to watch - I love the opening and I love the empowering message of the whole DVD!

Have fun!

what is this, the thread where people declare they're stopping posting?!?!
::LOL::LOL::LOL

just kidding of course! We are honored to have your 400th post on this thread. Thanks for a luminous entry, and enjoy your Vortex! Your retreat is clearly working--your posts have lovely energy.

I feel so giggly and silly. It's all good. Okay, so here's 2.

Abe speaks for an autistic kid, saying what they want you to hear is:" go over there and play in something you enjoy and Leave Me Alone!"

gosh, I like the freedom of that so much!!!

I DO think my children feel this way. That they want to enjoy themselves and want me to enjoy myself, whether that is with them or not.

But spending time with them if I am not enjoying myself is a waste do everyone's time.

I just like that. 'Leave me alone.' I don't know why that feels like such a relief to me, but it does.

Hey there. I was just thinking yesterday (while I'm 'working on' finding a feeling of freedom while bobbing around on the sea of my current reality)....that I spend almost all of my day forcing myself to play with my kiddo at what he wants to play with. Like riding elevators every weekday. I mean, I spend so much time trying to find the positive in what we're doing. And I definitely (of course) get to a point where I just want to be left alone. Occasionally he'll do this and play on his own ....but it's just SO wild ...he wants me close by always. When he's going to a new school this fall he's already asking me will I be waiting in a room down the hall. I do think this is all a cosmic joke sometimes, a joke on me. Abe calls it contrast. And he picks up on my vibrations and then wants to be with me more. I'm a prisioner of my vibrational output!!

PIVOT!!

But I hope you can hear (feel my vibe) that I know somehow it won't always be like this. And the responsibility is ALL mine (and I accept and feel empowered from that knowledge) to feel free, to feel happy, to feel fulfilled, to create the reality I want to live.

The new thing is going to parks and not playing on the playground but sitting there while he opens and closes and bangs the doors shut on the outdoor potties (biffys).

The saving grace is seeing how pure positive energy happy he is when we're visiting elevators. How he skips and sings and smiles big down the hall looking for the mechanical room doors. How he loves asking people what floor do you want and being the button pusher. Oh, I think I'll just focus purely on that and ride that feeling of his joy pouring out.

Whew! What a trip I  just now took. I've been on vacation and didn't have a lot of access to the forum. Every now and then I would peek into this thread but didn't stay, now I know why. I was definitely not a match to this amazing thread. I was living in fluffy vacation-land. So today I read this entire thread and it was quite a journey. Here are some of my thoughts:

I am drawn to this topic even though I have no experience with autistic children. I am a nurse so I'm interested in health-related topics. I have however listened to several of Abe videos on the topic and I feel a deep resonance with the idea that these children are here to teach us major lessons. Paradigm shift describes the process perfectly. It's almost as if areas previously darkened within my brain are getting glimmers of daylight. It's a beautiful feeling. Bless of the awesome parents of these extraordinary children, I can appreciate the challenges of day to day living with them. But know that amazing new understanding for all of us regarding vibrational communication is coming about through them. All of us on this planet need this shifting awareness at this time in our evolution.

This thread was so reflective of the range of emotions that can be elicited and then on the heels of that new understandings and a-ha moments. This is life and it's beautiful to see it played out in a written format here. Communicating via the written word allows for very well thought out communication.

I love this forum playground interacting with like minded people. So thank you everyone for such great sharing. Thank you especially Joyful Vibe for your open, powerful, from the heart sharing of your feelings, that has been what has made this thread so incredibly rich to read.::hugging

I loved reading about the connection with autism and homosexuality too, so interesting. The message is similar....here I am in all my glory! It is our journey to move into seeing them as perfect, beautiful, just they way they are meant to be.. and we are given a gift when we arrive at this acceptance.

Thanks everyone for such an amazing thread, I hope the conversation continues!

So funny, I just came on to unwatch and say that I'm not going to participate in this one after all, I will still be posting though in other threads.  the alaska cruise has initiated big shifts in vibration for me and I am watching it all unfold beautifully.

love you all.

I agree, JV--Try Again~ Nice to have your energy here.

Please, everyone should do what is in the Vortex for them, of course! and I'm glad you are all doing that! Come back if it feels good, and stay away if it feels good, lurk if it feels good.  IT'S ALL GOOD!  :)


I just listened to the link again, just to ground myself in the material, and it's great.

I love when Abe says--"they know that what they are doing is not working."


For me, that is such a useful thing all around. It's kind of like what Dr. Phil says, "How's that working out?"

This material just WORKS. It works. I can tell. It makes such a difference in my life.  It's working out VERY WELL.

Also, I love how Abe says, "Most would be more comfortable with you getting religious than talking about vibration."

It's funny, this is how I feel about talking with 'non-abers.'  I can have very leading edge conversations with believing, practicing Christians, because they have a concept of non-physical interaction (although they would call it something else). But they have had experiences that make it possible to have really interesting discussions.

I like being here. I'm so happy to be in the Philippines. I enjoy being in a Catholic country!

And I enjoy this time away from what is 'normal' so that I can really carve out my day for what I want. 

I appreciate you guys, this discussion, and the forum, SO MUCH.

Hi there!
Just wanted to say I've watched the DVD twice in the last couple of days and I took notes to what spoke to me. And I heard different things each time (isn't that fun?).
And the tears!!
I'm putting my thoughts together and will be posting soon.
You know I wish I could be in the hotseat and talk with Abe about my little guy and my...expansion. Really feel that all is well, and cut through the cloud of negative-feeling thoughts that still run through my mind. If nothing else, at least I'm very aware of the thoughts, and many rockets have been launched.

This is wonderful, Joyful Vibe, and I can't wait to hear your thoughts.

What I got this last time from watching it-- is that we are here for a joyful life, and it's an inside job. And that's what these kids came to teach us, because they WON'T CHANGE won't submit to societal pressure to
change.
And they are mostly joyful. Joyful life. It is why we are here.

Aahhh.

My peeps.
I'm wanting to post when I'm feeling in my Vortex or at least have my toes in there tickling in the waters of wooohoo. :)

So many thoughts, floating in contrast and getting only glimpses of my vibe escrow. Trying to imagine the feeling of what I want...but it's too big for me to do right now.

My kid is doing SO good. Happy, happy, energetic, bold, sweet, mischievous. And going through quite a lot of why, why, why questions peppered with what could happen, if...??! questions.

All I can think these days is that *for me* parenting asks everything of me, then it asks for more. And I'm feeling resentment. I cannot imagine freedom, or what I would even do if I had more time.

So, for these days I am trying to insert myself, and little things I want in with my days with my child which are primarily all about what he wants.
I long for the feeling of it not having to be "either or". I want that "both and". I want to expand and become more while I'm clocking in hours of my day, of my life playing with him, riding elevators, watching him slam doors, and love the cat aggressively despite (and no doubt because) his dad and I have been asking him to be gentle and not hurt her. (I just get up and leave the room. Distract myself. and try to drown out the sound of the cat crying and my son smiling big. My sweet child enjoying hurting her (it seems) but really just not getting the cause-effect of hurting her, and loving that sound she makes. contrast, contrast, contrast!!!)

I'm resentful of those whose kids are older and they can more easily put the spotlight of their own life back on themselves.

I wish to see the bigger picture. I no longer want to feel more negative than good. I just want to feel fantastic, free, and eager for more....I don't want to long for his bedtime, and feel ...less than enthusiastic for the morning.
Am I loving the contrast - as Abe asks?
Hey, I was wondering if there is any expansion without contrast? Can't we just live in joy?
And is contrast just a word - but really nothing that occurs has any meaning - even contrast...except the meaning I give to it? Wouldn't that be cool to view contrast from *only* the point of view of OH YEAH BABY SWEET EXPANSION COMING MY WAY!!::devil

Back soon with more thoughts on the DVD and what spoke to me.
Think I'll go see a movie later and get more vortexy-viewing and then I'll post.
