Hi guys!
I'm happy to be starting this new thread. It's dawn here where I am, and I know today will be a beautiful day.

Here's last month's thread:  http://theabeforum.com/forum8/18258.html

Here is our page a day guide for the magnificent book
Money and the Law of Attraction:
Attracting Wealth, Health and Happiness
by Esther and Jerry Hicks,
The Teachings of Abraham.




1-Aug            162
2-Aug            163
3-Aug            164
4-Aug            165
5-Aug            166
6-Aug            167


It will be a short thread on a big topic!

Page 162~
[To manage one's bodyweight:] We would encourage a visualization of self as you are wanting to be, seeing yourself in that way, thereby attracting it.

MLOA page 162:

When you feel very negative about something, do not try to hammer it out and solve it immediately, because your negative attention to it just makes it worse.  Distract yourself from the thought until you feel better: and then take another run at it from your positive, fresh perspective.
This is so helpful.  Wow. I love having these study groups, because, again, they encourage me to practice this stuff. To practice getting back into the Vortex. It takes practice!
I've read this before, three times before, at least!  But I need this RIGHT NOW. 

Get in a better mood.  When I feel better, then look at my 'problem' and from the Vortex, if it doesn't spit me out, it won't look like a problem!  The solution will be clear!!!!!

Oh thank heavens.

Re: My body--I am LOVING what I see in the mirror.  That feels so good!  And when I don't love what I see in the mirror, I have started pivoting, finding better feeling thoughts about my body.  It works so well! It WORKS. I can modify my knee-jerk reaction thought, and find ways to feel better about my body and its appearance. And my body is coming into alignment with my vision. It's pretty cool to watch.


Also, LOL, I'm listening to a workshop, and I just have to share this:
Stamford May 2010 workshop:
Guest:
I'm going through a situation in my life and I'd like some coaching on it.

Abraham:
Ignore it. Next!

First - a side note - It is just amazing how when we have a challenge - a step one - non-vortex moment -  and we just ask for some direction to help ourselves find joy - then WHAM -- a thread or a tape or reading that is JUST what you asked for appears. I love it!! So -- I've been a tad down lately on the issue of body.  Thank you for starting this thread ... And like another said here - I've read it so many times but today it feels like a new reading.

I just pulled my book out. I opened to the assigned pages. Not only does the page have a bent corner - it has bright orange highlight:

Pg 163: A good rule of thumb is: Get happy, then eat. But do not try to eat your way to happiness." As you have come to make your emotional balance your top priority, your relationship with food will change and your impulse toward food will change, but even more important,  your responsee t food will change. Altering behavior about food without tending to your vibration nets minimul results, while altering thought will yield great returns without the necessity of altering the behavior

Hmmm... not what I thought I would read or what I needed.  Yet - there must be something there to ponder today.

Meanwhile - I'm going with the visualization of self as I want to see myself.   Feeling. Feeling... "When you feel very negative about something, do not try to hammer it out and solve it immediately, because your negative attention to it just makes it worse. Distract yourself from the thought until you feel better; and then take another run at it from your positive, fresh perspective." (162)

Oh Ha!  This is the thought that works for me today. I'm entering the actions of my day today with this positive perspective.

Live, Love, Laugh All Day Today!

How silly of me -- the quote I found that I needed I didn't see Leslie had also written right at the top of her thoughts...part of me feels silly and part of me says -- I need a hammering :o))  I'm laughing...another great way to ease it up and let go of the oars.

Thank you!

Hey, on the most recent Stamford workshop mp3, they just said that Money and the Law of Attraction was "the Best Book Ever Written!" 

Yeah! we know it!

They were kind of making a joke about it--they said, when this came out, it was number one on the New York Times Bestseller list.  now it's # 2000 on Amazon.  And this is the Best Book that was Ever Written!

::LOL

So basically, don't worry about people 'hearing' us, because everyone is not ready to hear everything, and it's okay.

Alright:

get in the Vortex, then do whatever you have time for! GET IN THE VORTEX.

I'm packing now, but what I'm doing first, is posting here, to get INTO THE VORTEX.

It is the only thing that matters.

Love to you all!
And DAVID! thank you for getting the Forum back up! I love this forum.

Soo glad to have the forum back on. Thank you David.

"When you feel fat you cannot attract slender. When you feel poor, you cannot attract prosperity. That which you are - the state of being that you feel - is the basis from which you attract. That is why "the better it gets, the better it gets; and the worse it gets, the worse it gets."

This is why my body shape and my finances have been getting worse. I have got some major vibrational shifting to do on these issues.

So funny! And it works too! I just did that with my husband's bad mood which he kept up for 2 days. I just ignored it and focused on being in the vortex. I expanded! Awesome fun. Do it again, baby!

Re: food. The shift in my food beliefs I wrote about last week, about forgetting all about cookies sitting right on my counter, is so ginormous I just want to shout. I don't feel controlled by food anymore!  

I even have bread in the house, and I've been a diehard low-carber for quite a while. I had myself convinced my body could not handle carbs, that it would set me binging immediately. And I keep forgetting to eat the bread! I've allowed it, and I've had some, and now I can take it or leave it. Absolutely amazing.

Re: self image. This has been a toughy for me, because I couldn't visualize my body as I want it to be. It seems so far from where I am. So I've been ignoring this "problem" entirely. Well, the other day, out of the blue, I got a mental picture of me naked with the body I want! It was absolutely me--my body, not a "perfect" body with my head on it. It was curvy and sweetly padded, a very cute and curvaceous body. I could only see it from the side and back, not the front, but I'm sure the front will appear one of these days. 

Re: money. I'm ignoring that too and just being in the vortex a whole bunch. There's this situation with my mother's estate and my brother, the trustee, who did not give me all I was supposed to get. He also ignored my very polite emails about it. So I decided to let it go and move up the EGS regarding my brother. I took Abe's advice that if someone owes you money, let it go. And I did.

Well! Today, out of the blue I got an email from him saying that as soon as hears from my sister about the final amount due her for my mother's burial, "final disbursements will be sent." Wow! I'm going to get more money! I had no idea he was planning this because the last communication on this subject had sounded like the money was all gone and that was it. So this is fantastic evidence that getting in the vortex and ignoring my "problems" is the way to go!

I got a little worried, because in my excitement I wrote him back and again mentioned the money I'm "supposed" to get, asking for clarification. But now I'm ignoring that email!

I wonder what else I can ignore. Thank you all for this wonderful thread!

Today I had a good breakfast.
With eggs .
I said with eggs.:exactly::exactly:::woohoo
The eggs were fantastic, exactly the way I like them.::wow::wow
I know that a lot of people want good eggs and wonder how did I get them to be so perfect.::thumb::thumb
There are many methods:
1- put an egg in the middle of a focus wheel and spin it really fast. ::vortex1a
2- when you go to a restaurant, they give you a picture of  beautiful eggs, take the picture and put it in your Magical creation Box. (The eggs that come from the kitchen will never look the same)

3- Turn it over to the manager.::lovenote yea, he didn't have a good breakfast for years.

There are many other processes. don't try the prosperity game,  I know of someone who has all the money in the world and can't get her eggs right. She stand on a stage wave her hands in circles but the bad eggs go everywhere, Denver, Chicago, Boston, Alaska ...

How do I get perfect eggs? I make them myself. mypie

OMSOurce Joseph!!!::LOL:kiss:::LOL:kiss:::LOLThat was so good and so funny and so sweet and so perfect..like your eggs that I wish Esther could read it! I bet your story would inspire great eggs from this moment forward!

I am going to step into my kitchen and softly fry to eggs and place them on two wasa rye fiber crackers, with seal salt, hot chinese mustard and hot pepper flakes on top...and a hot cup of decaf on the side...fresh, just for me.

::group I might even swirl my arm in the air like esther does and say...good eggs!

Ellen!  Perfect!!  This is exactly how I lost my 65 lbs and now teach people!!  I've got a chapter in my book called, "Don't Hate Me Because I'm a Donut"  ::LOL

Make friends with the cookies!  Make friends with the bread!  Welcome them into your home and invite them to stay!  Stop pushing against.  Allow, allow, allow...... knowing that you can have them any time, any where and enjoy them, they suddenly take their balanced place in your healthy relationship with them!!

You're on your way to becoming a cookie whisperer! 

IMHO, it is the very essence of the Abe teachings.  Love it!!

:kiss: Susanna

So interesting! This concept of "ignoring" coming up on this thread at this particular time!

I've been a little MIA on the forum because of some money/income contrasts recently, but let me share something with all of you that only you can appreciate!!!

I think I've shared that I've set up an email account for my UM (conveniently named Abraham) so that they can occasionally write me when I need to hear from them.  So this is an excerpt from an email I received from them 2 days ago:

There is nothing wrong or right about making money the way you want to make money.... There is nothing wrong or right with wanting to make money easily and doing something fun.... it is your society that has made it wrong.... it is the millions of messages floating around saying you have to work hard and do things you don't want to do and "pay your dues"..... it is your DH who says he has "paid his dues" when in fact the only time humans feel they have "paid their dues" is when they were misaligned and their energy was split and they created their own so-called "dues".... your DH and others feel more worthy of their successes when they have pointed out "their dues".... it's a way to justify and feel better about the times they were misaligned.... but their successes were successes because of their times of alignment, not misalignment.... oh, how humans get it all backwards!!!
 
20 years ago, we gave you an amazing look into how this Universe works... look at the way you lost weight.... you didn't pay your dues at all..... you ate McDonald's for goodness sakes!! ...... you enjoyed your favorite desserts!!!.... it is only society's belief that you have to work hard at losing weight that you keep hearing those messages everywhere...... but interestingly enough - is it working?..... NO.....people are getting fatter!!  It is your own belief created by the beliefs of others that is splitting your energy about making money .... it is society who has told you that you have to "fight your fears" and "pound the pavement" and "get your degree"  and "work 16 hours a day" to make money......
 
We are here to tell you it is not!!!  ....  Source, as easily as it provides water and sun for the trees, can - without question - funnel enormous amounts of money through this simple idea of yours even though society would deem it "lazy"!!  You say when you are in the Vortex, you feel really really good and excited and giddy about this idea and when out of the Vortex, you feel completely opposite.... when you were in the Vortex, this idea was fun and potentially profitable, but one statement from your DH turned that 180 degrees in the opposite direction... but you allowed a bigger space for your DH's energy than you allowed for your own IB's - your Source's energy.... never a good idea.... as much as Source loves DH, he is mostly out of the Vortex and completely worth ignoring.... anyone who is out of the Vortex is completely worth ignoring.... and when you are out of the Vortex, you should ignore you too!

Interesting, huh?  I'll keep you posted on what happens next...

Susanna

Joseph and everybody about the minding your own business and mining your own business from the July thread...::wow

This stuff is good. It inspired an exercise-- I know it is going to deliver GOLD. It is a Belief Inventory Exercise

I am going to write down my current active beliefs---and clean 'em up. The same way you declutter your closet, but better.:)


I am going to have differnt PILES...

For instance...

Yummy new LOA/Abe beliefs
1) keep (and pratice)--these are my new ABE beliefs that I truly believe and need to practice MORE and MORE until they resonate...like Alignment before action. And flowing dollars is vibrational work and NOT hard work (i am going to be hardly working ::devil and playind always).

2)get rid off (those that no longer serve, will focus wheel them away). This is where my awareness is crucial to bogus thoughts...


 
3) The donate pile --those are my thoughts about other people, none of my business...i am letting them go.::devil Amazing how many thoughts i think about other people..including those I have never met.


4) bring back to the front of the closet...those are the beliefs that  could  benefit me and feel good to think about, but I dont practice, so those I am going to start practicing!...because I believe them!


I think this exercise will evolve into something GOOD!

 
I am taking a belief inventory and seeing how i feel about those.
