My husband and I can't handle money worth a damn! And it's so funny! We spent thousands to go on Abraham cruise, and now all we really want is to go on another one! That cracks me up!

I'm suddenly enjoying the heck out of my financial contrast. What a mess we've made of things, and I love it. You know why? Because we started out the day bummed out by the shortage of money, and then over the course of the day we got in the vortex! And we have so much fun in the vortex.

Bring on the financial ruin! Bring on the empty bank account and all the other things I worry about when I'm out of the vortex, because they just give me a really great opportunity to get in the vortex. Wheeee!

Does working with Abraham ever make anyone else feel bipolar? ::LOL

Well, it is all about knowing what your feelings are.  Your true, authentic feelings.

And, when learning to feel what balance is like,

IT Can Feel Like Bi-Polar.

This is soooo weird, yesterday I was reading something Abraham has said, (or what it heard) that when you have been in vortex the out of vortex feelings feel a little stronger, cause well now you know!!! And I thought this must be what manic feels like in manic depressive people... you know you are manic and everything is soooooo great!!!! Then you are depressive and well.... but I think the difference is that we know how to get back in manic!!!



Also I in the finance contrast place.... well sort of ..... I have a job I want to quite and I have no savings....

I just LOVED that! "Terrible with money" you say? Or is it terrible with savings and frugality and practicality and just-getting-by and making-do and playing it safe? And making-the-best-of-it-cuz-money-is-in-short-supply.

Youre dropping a whole lot of time honored principles right in the garbage. GOOD JOB!

Was thinking more like Senile. ::LOL Crazy old bat la-la-laing her way through every day, goofing off, having fun while the rest of us have our nose to the grindstone. While the bills still need paying and there's a war goin on and an election coming up and swine flu and foreclosures.

And when you try to get her to care about these things she just says "here, have some pie" ::LOL

Reminds me of "The Big Lebowski", where Jeff Bridges says, "Aw...f--k it," and the BL says, "Yes! F--k it! That's your answer to everything! Tattoo it on your forehead!"

I'm smiling about your post!

I was in trouble constantly in school, until about the 11th grade when I joined a successful band and got my attention that way.

But when I was in the 9th grade and had done whatever it was I had done, the new Principal said to me, "This is going to look terrible on your record!"

I had no idea what a "record" was, nor did I care.

She couldn't use the threat of my "record" to either make me feel bad, or to scare me into behaving.

Look at it this way, mebbe---you and your hubby aren't terrible with money.  You invested thousands in yourselves. And your future selves, unworried about money and financial disaster, will then be able to eventually go ahead and make some actual green---you won't have to charge anything!

(By the way, you guys weren't bummed by the "shortage of money."  There is no shortage of money. You were just bummed! And now you're not bummed!)

Sparklebright nailed it.

In the past 5 months, since my Abe workshop, I have f---ked off more than I ever have in my life, and have had more opportunities than in the last 10 years or so. They are coming fast and they are coming strong.  TV shows. Managers. More money.  More love. More touch. More fun.

It's 10:22 AM and I still haven't gotten to work yet. One last post...

Looking forward to the Rolls-Royce (a real one, not a vortexed one) arriving a week from this Thursday.

:)

Thank you all for the responses. I'm still laughing! Yes, indeed, I am certainly seeing my crazy old EGS in action here. Yup, Leigh, I'm not quite in balance yet, but what a ride it is to get there. Up and down and up and down. And Peri, I love that you said we know how to get back in manic. Too funny!

Sparklebright, yes! "Or is it terrible with savings and frugality and practicality and just-getting-by and making-do and playing it safe? And making-the-best-of-it-cuz-money-is-in-short-supply."

That's exactly what we're terrible at! Who knew that would be a good thing? Oh, I love Abraham. And since I'm also changing my vibration about food and my body, I'll join you for some pie. A couple of crazy, senile women shoving the pie in while Rome burns down and a new, better city builds up around us. While we laugh and laugh!

Slow Jam, I want to get "Fuck it" tattood on my forehead. Funny story: a Vietnam vet I knew had a Zippo lighter he bought in Vietnam and had engraved with what was supposed to read "Fuck it." But the engraver didn't speak English and misunderstood, so he engraved "Fuck if" instead. Think of all the conditions that "if" could be referring to. Fuck if she's pretty. Fuck if you're drunk. Fuck if the sun's shining. Fuck if it's raining.

"In the past 5 months, since my Abe workshop, I have f---ked off more than I ever have in my life, and have had more opportunities than in the last 10 years or so. They are coming fast and they are coming strong.  TV shows. Managers. More money.  More love. More touch. More fun."

Ooh, this is immensely inspiring. This sort of story is one of the reasons I love this forum. Last night I was fucking off and started thinking, gee, I should go to bed. Gee, if I'm going to be awake, there are things I should be doing. And then I thought, fuck it, I'm just going to goof off like I used to do back in the days when things always seemed to work out just fine. So I just relaxed. It's good to hear how effective that is! ::woohoo

Just got a call from my favorite customer ordering an ounce. I'm going to take a shower and drive over to her house and have a lovely chat with her.

Life feels fun today! I love being terrible with just getting by and being frugal. I'm ready to get even worse at it.

Maybe we'll be on that Alaska cruise yet.

You all are awesome. You make my heart sing. ::music

I'll bring my fiddle, if I may! ::LOL

ellenyo, major congrats on your relaxed and fun attitude toward the contrast. A shift not many would make, I dare say! ::hugging

ellenyo, that was POWERFUL

Making light of the situation, and seeing yourself as a zany wonderful unique and playful citizen of the Universe, softened your vibration and released resistance.

Your first post made me smile. And then I was thrilled that things shifted so quickly for you.

Ellenyo,

You are doing so much better than the banks -- and 100% more responsible!!! And do you think they are beating themselves up about it. No, they are getting raises.

I love how Hiwarious you are! That's what my 6-year-old son says to me now in a mocking voice. "Mom you are so Hiwarious!" -- he cracks me up too.

As Chris mentioned -- I think humor can be an effective way to shift one's resisiance and the start to pivoting. I have used humor myself for releasing resistance. The one thing though from listening to Abraham -- I realize that this use of "mocking" humor can be very effective; however, I find that I really want to shift even from that as I move up the scale. To where I am really saying and knowing that I am an excellent money manager -- that's the vibration I cultivate and maintain. I went through some real lack of funds about 13 years ago after a divorce and after working and playing with my relationship to abundance -- I now feel so much more confident and able in that area. And I am always tweaking and learning how to allow more in.

LOVING THIS THREAD!!!    Me too, me too, I wanna play!  And so I shall...   What I find hilariously funny is that I am REALLY GOOD with MONEY...   and I don't have any!!  Ha Ha Ha!!!  ROFL!!! 

That is, I don't have any $$ outside the Vortex - which is only a temporary manifestation of past thoughts.

In my Vortex, in REAL TIME, I am LOADED BEYOND my ability to EVER COUNT IT ALL!!!!

"How's that working out for you?"

Hello Everyone,

This is my first post after being an appreciative voyeur of the forum. I just looked up the spelling of voyeur in the dictionary, and guess what other word is on that same page?...Vortex! The definition of voyeur is "a person who derives exaggerated or unseemly enjoyment from being an observer." That would be me. Thanks to all for the pleasure of reading your inspiring posts.

I felt compelled to write, because last night, this thread really was a hoot to read. I went to sleep laughing about it. I especially loved your comment, Sparklebright. (Nice to meet you.)

Tonight, my girlfriend invited me over to dinner, and she said, I just bought a pack of kitchen towels, would you like one? I said "sure," and she handed me a kitchen towel that was bright and cheerful, and covered with pictures of delicious pieces of pie, and the towel said all over it, "WHO WANTS PIE?" ::LOL 

I had just been noticing yesterday, that my kitchen towels were worn thin and dingy, and was thinking it was time to get some new ones! I love this stuff!!

Love to all,

Sherry

Someone was looking for this thread today, and I thought I'd update it since it's been three months since I started it.

We're heading out on the Abraham Alaska cruise tomorrow morning, and I know without a doubt booking this cruise was the correct decision. I feel so much less worried about money these days. And I'm even thinking, yeah, we're fantastic with money! We spent money on an Abe cruise? What a prudent decision! How smart am I, huh? Wise beyond measure!

This is SUCH a great thread!!!
Remember it from the time a was just a voyeur, too!! ::hugging
Sometimes I think this way of dealing with money is the only way to do it at all (no, still not really, but I LOVE it). I remember the time where we had no money at all, but it was planting time and we desperately WANTED 30 very expensive, fragrant flowering- especially- beautyful trees for our giant fairy-garden (that was just a crappy lawn that time).

We "took our heart and threw it over the fence and jumped afterwards" (a german saying from riders. Have no idea if its making sense in english! ::devil) and just ordered that trees. First we where parallized of fear what we had done.

Than we started to relax and get some trust... And finally we came out with "we are SO brave! We did this EXACTLY right!". This was 15 years ago, the trees are tall and beautifull today-  and the bill never came (we asked the company 3 times- and then decided that this was enough of beeing "fair"!).

::LOL  ::cool  ::grapevine            ::wave Elke

P.S: In german the word "Schuld" (debt) is the same as "Schuld" (guilt, feeling guilty, beeing blamable). That says it all, I think.
