1. Anytime you’re contacting the institution, whether via forms you’re mailing in or a telephone call you’re making, think, “This is going to be a great opportunity for this person to do the things they’re really good at and the things they want to do.  This person has been waiting for an opportunity to help a deserving person like me – waiting for just this kind of an opportunity to make a difference in a deserving person’s life!” 

:beautiful:

Think those sentences any time you find yourself wondering (or worrying) about what the answer to your requests is going to be!  Repeat it over and over until it becomes your expectation when you think about your lending institutions.

2. Write thank you letters, in advance, to the person, or people, with whom you’re working.  As soon as you know a name, sit down and pre-write that person a detailed thank you letter, thanking them for the exact outcome you desire.  Go into detail about how they’ve helped a truly deserving individual (you!) who will not be wasting the precious second chance they’ve been given!  Address this letter and sign it; it is a real letter that you’re simply not sending YET!

This is an important process in creating an expectation for a certain outcome.  It forces you to walk through all the “they’ll never do this for me” fears.  Remember: those fears are only a belief!  Just a simple belief!  You can just as easily believe, “they’ll do this for me”!  

I’ve been amazed at how many of my letters, when I go back and read them, were 100% prophetic.  Nostradamus eat your heart out!

::whistle

3. Once you’ve taken the action necessary and you’ve performed your process techniques as described here, forget about it!  Go on and live your life as if you have no problem!  Because you don’t!

In fact, take it a step further.  Conjure exactly how it will feel to have this debt gone.  Revel in the security, the safety, the elation, and the freedom!  Then, once you’ve held those wonderful feelings in your heart, make a decision to feel that way right nowAll the time

::shooting 

Live your life as if you’re already free of the debt.  Because you are!  Literally (think about that one for a while::thumb).
Hi Greg,I just wanted you to know how helpful the above was for me.  I've been going through some serious growing pains with my business and am in the process of securing cashflow to get me to the next level.  It has come down to the wire and if certain people and institutions don't come through for me, it will jeoprodize 8 years of hard work.  I applied your process of writing thank you letters as if I had already secured the financing.  With in 10 hours I am happy to say I was actually able to send out one of the thank you letters I had written that morning. I'm hoping to send out the other one on Monday or Tuesday, once I get the good news. I can't tell you how much your blog and this thread means to me.  I can relate to so many things that you described in your experience.  I have worked my butt off for 8 years and have realized that through out this entire time I was going about it with feelings of fear, guilt, who am I to attempt to make lots of $ , etc...  Seriously, every time the phone rang, I would cringe hoping it wasn't an unsatisfied client.  Silly me, at the beginning it was mostly happy clients calling to reorder, but over time I was attracting more and more unhappy clients. I loved my work but dreaded looking at my bank statements.  I sent out so many mixed signals to the universe and received mixed success back. I thought by stressing I was being 'realistic' about things.  I know better now and am excited to apply all that I've learnt to this upcoming year. My big eye opener yesterday was on embracing contrast instead of fearing it. But that's a whole other thread.The other thing I realized is that I've been eagerly reading all of the Hicks' books and listening to the teachings, but I wasn't taking the time to honestly sit down and do the work to change my limiting beliefs.Your detailed description about your issues with 'manifesting money through your website' is an amazing process and I'm eager to use it for raising my vibration on certain things. Everything you've written on this thread I've devoured and I will most definately be purchasing your book when it comes out. ::thumbMuch love,Shiva

Wow!  I love reading this thread!  And it's time for me to post again about applying my process to "earning more money from my website". (And I have been inspired to start calling it "earning" rather than "making" or "having" - more on that in a later post)

Where I am on this topic: I've taken a couple weeks to meditate on "belief and positive expectation" regarding "earning more money from my website".  The move from "optimism" to "belief and postive expectation" is not one I am taking lightly.  I am just about ready to start writing about "earning more money from my website" from the perspective of "belief and positive expectation".

Feels like I will write about it today, as a matter of fact.  Because the egg is hatching, so to speak.  My perspective has grown and I'm in a new place of vibration. 

I filled out my ledger for December yesterday.  I am accustomed to earning approximately $430/month from my website. (I'm refering to the website I have for my Father's business, not anything I've built for LOA teachings).  In December, I earned a little over $2,000.

::grapevine 

All with my mind!

There are as many different universes as their are observers - applying my process to "earning more money from my website) is showing me that very clearly.  I am utterly amazed at the different perspectives, energies, manifestations, and inspirations which occur at each level of vibration! 

No wonder some people are happy and successful no matter what's "occuring" around them...those "occurances" aren't occuring around those people - just me!  Except now I'm one of those people too!

::tramp

Things are bursting open all around me at this new point of vibration.  Opportunities, options, ideas, time, energy, partnerships, etc are pouring out of me.  Value, love, and appreciation are pouring out of me.  And the coolest thing is that, although I can point to lots of specific actions I'm taking, I know I'm doing this all with my mind!

And you can too!

I'm working on a new website right now that will take my LOA blog and my LOA lens and put them into hyperdrive.  It is so much fun!

To the God in You,

Greg

I want to express again that I so very appreciate this thread
and the genius information that you have shared w/ us, Greg!

I re-read the thread last night and I especially liked this line...
"Remember that everyone else in the world is really only you in a different package.  And, in turn, you are the same thing as everyone else in the world – just in your own unique package.  So if you desire more customers (or desire debt forgiveness as I did), all you’re seeking is for you to give yourself money (or for you to forgive yourself of debt, as the case may be)."
I had such an "Ah-HA!" moment reading that!

Anyway, I felt inspired to do the process again. (I sort of got discouraged the first time I attempted it :?)  My most challenging and most important issue in my life would fall into the "And other things" category.  Parenting.  (sigh)
After I wrote about my feelings concerning this, I determined that I was at Frustration/Impatience/Irritation on the EGS.  (Man, was that a hard one to swallow.  Gulp.)  I soon realized that I have been slapping smilies over how I really feel in my daily interaction w/ my daughters.  Sure I've had my really, really JOYfilled days but my emotional setpoint is actually lower on the scale.  OK, so I am where I am and I'm ready to make the journey up the scale to get to where I really want to be... Joyfully free and loving to my children.  Next stop, Pessimism.  Ahhhh.  I'm already feeling some relief.
Oh and another thing... After I did the process, I decided wouldn't it be fun to pick a card out of the Ask & It Is Given deck.  Without looking, here's the card that I chose:

"First, I Reach for Joy, and All Else Follows"

"Once you consciously identify your current state of emotion, it becomes easier for you to understand whether you are choosing thoughts that move you closer to your desired destination or farther from your desired destination.  If you will make the improved feeling or emotion your real destination, then anything and everything that you want will quicky follow."

Happy emotional journeys up the scale, everyone!

Thank you Greg that is so inspirational. I seem to have such resistance to attracting the right mate for me, I sometimes nearly lose faith in the Abe approach, I can dip into feeling the Universe has foresaken me on this one even though I have seen wonderful manifestations in other areas. I am going to try your process on this, it feels so right. Well done for such wonderful manifestations in your finances.

Best Wishes

Hi Greg,

I am just loving this thread but I have one little question. Can you pick several things you are really low about to write about (perhaps in seperate sessions) or do you just pick the most important thing right now, try to work on that, and then tackle the rest later?

For example, if you had "money" issues and "relationship" issues would it be best to pick the one that is the most pending/bothersome and work from there?

Thanks! ::hugging

Namaste1 - Great question .. had been thinking of asking that question myself! ::thumb

Greg, you may not think this is advisable, and I totally understand why it's so important to feel the feelings and move up slowly, but inspired by this past and having 30 minutes in the bath this morning ...

I brought with me the emotional guidance scale and within 30 minutes, talked myself up from fear to contentment .. and it was a very beautiful experience!

What was interesting was that if you had asked me before, I would have placed myself somewhere around boredom, when it came to 'Me and Money' .. but when doing the mini version of this exercise, I was surprised that I could get in touch with a lot feelings around fear, guilt, anger, jealousy etc. so, I will call what I did a taster session .. and will definitely be doing your version of it.

So, my suggestion to all, is to work right from the bottom of the scale, because it could be that you (well this was true for me) have pushed away or ignored some deeper feelings .. feelings that may have felt too painful to look at.

And like Abraham says, it's better to find relief, from emotion to emotion, than to try and jump too high too soon.

aniheart Wow, I LOVE this thread. aniheart

Namaste1 - I was just about to ask that question. I would like to write about money and my body.

Greg, this is such an amazing thread! A question that I have for you:

If you were to outline the perfect manifesting day for your self, what would it look like? You mentioned the "Ah" meditation and thank you notes, but in what order do you do all this? Do you do all of the processes in the morning and then spend the rest of the day focusing on things that make you feel good? Even the things that have nothing to do with money?

Thanks for the clear up. I want to incorporate this process into my morning ritual. Gonna have to wake up an hour earlier if I keep finding so much great info on this site!

I can't believe I haven't found this thread until now! This is amazing. Tara and I are going to start exactly what you did in the morning.

I'm blown away with the perfect timing in the Universe. I guess I wasn't quite ready for this thread until NOW.

This is something that Tara and I have been deeply discussing and peeling away layers of our own long held thoughts about money.

My ENORMOUS thanks for this thread. You are a genius, as of course we are all part of the genius Source that is GOD!

Again, thank you Greg for clarifying Abraham's moving-up-the-emotional-scale proccess for me. Yes your added description was fantastic.

I intend to use this proccess to earn money trading on-line. I feel so excited. If this  improves my trading then I can help other traders too.

Abraham has described the stock market as a game of alignment. It is really fun and interesting (when I am making money) to notice how I am feeling and the instant results I am manifesting each night because I am trading live.

When I first started learning to trade I was so excited that even when I made mistakes I still made money. When I am "locked on" I am inspired to take the profitable trades, I get filled and make money.

When I am "locked off" I'll miss trades ( right when you get up to make a cup of tea!), take losing trades or don't get filled on profitalbe trades.

Sometimes I have a happy sticker on and I think to myself, yeah I'm "locked on" tonight, it's going to be a good night to trade.

But results don't lie. My losing night is my reality check to ask myself how was I really feeling. That is when I notice doubt or worry.

So I asked the Universe for one simple proccess I can use to raise my vibration so that when I trade, I can let it in.

And once I had used the proccess successfully myself, I wanted to use it to coach fellow traders to be suceessful.

Thank you Greg, and Thank you Universe for leading me to this thread! Ask and it is given!! ::nod

Love & Appreciation

OMG, Greg!  This process is so AMAZING! 

I've only been applying the process to my challenge of Parenting for the past two days (and only moving up two notches on the EGS from Frustration/Impatience/Irritation to Boredom).
Already I've noticed some progress!  Yippeeee!
I was observing something this morning that my children had done... Two days ago, I would have felt VERY irritated by what I was looking at but I actually wasn't bothered by it!  When I realized what I was feeling, (a feeling of indifference) I was absolutely amazed.  The outer conditions hadn't changed but my perspective had!  What freedom!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  You Rock!

Hello fellow Abers and Deliberate Creators! ::wave

I love this thread soooo much! aniheart

I appreciate Greg and everyone else's input enormously. :allgood

I am just about to start in a BIG way to follow Greg's process and I am full of expectation and excitement. 

I decided to cut and paste all Greg's posts, including what I felt most useful .. everything Greg has said up until this moment ..to print off as a something for me to read several times over before proceeding.

I love clarity! ::devil

So, in the next post on this thread is what I have accumulated in terms of Greg's postings to us. So, it's going to be LONG .. so ignore it if you've already grabbed all the key points .. and if you've only just arrived at this thread, it may make wonderful, concentrated reading for you.

Hope that's OK by Greg and the Moderators.

If not, let me know.

Love

Pink Star ::hearts

P.S. I've decided to focus on 2 areas at the same time .. Money and Self-Worth, because I know they are both connected for me.

This is a summary of Greg's posts to us so far:


My Process of Manifesting Money (and Other Things Too)


From: http://theabeforum.com/forum2/2011-1.html


How did that happen? There are many things I do every day - things that you, my IB, and Abraham have taught me. But there is one specific procedure I did, regarding money, that poured rocket fuel into my vibrational escrow.

Perhaps others have used the process I'll describe here; it really is very simple. I am currently using this process, by the way, on other areas of my life...other specific topics. It has worked so unbelievably well with the specific topic of "Greg and money" that I am really enjoying seeing what it will do in these other areas. (Rest assured, I will post about them!)

How well has this process worked? Within the last two and a half month period I've manifested (or allowed) almost $150,000!!!! (in addition to the additional manifestations I mentioned at the beginning of this post, which will double this amount)

Here's what I did/do:

I give myself an honest assessment regarding how I feel about a topic (for example, "money"). Where is my current emotional set point? And I mean where is it REALLY? Not where would I like it to be. I actually "tell it like it is" (I know, I know...those are four-letter-words to us normally!)

So far I've been addressing topics that I haven't been manifesting in accordance with my desires, so I've obviously been finding myself very low on the emotional scale. For example, when I started this exercise with "money" I found myself at the low emotional set point of "worry". And, obviously, this low emotional set point is the culprit regarding why my source energy has been blocked regarding this particular topic.

After I truly identify my current, tell-it-like-it-is, emotional set point, I write about that set point. I roll around in that set point like a dog on a dead animal! I embrace that set point, pain and all, with full-on honesty. No justification! No rationalization! No wishful thinking!

Then I identify the next spot up the emotional guidance scale. Just one spot up! And I begin to think of the topic within the terms of that next highest spot on the scale.

And the next day, I do the same writing process with that next highest spot. (If it takes me more than one day to think of my topic in the vein of the next highest emotional set point, that's okay)

One rule has served me very well - never go up the emotional guidance scale more than
one spot per day.

What I've found is that within the course of a few days (or weeks), I have moved up to the highest spots on the emotional guidance scale in regards to the topic on which I've focused. And then I'm flying and I stay there! And the new emotional set point is very real. So much more real, for me, than all the pretending, wishing, hoping, self-convincing, and fake-it-until-I-make-it that I did before!!!! I'm really there! I'm San Diego!
...........

1. The uncomfortability of "where-I'm-at". Good point. It is very uncomfortable! Why? Any time there is a gap between my emotional set point and my desire, there will be discomfort/pain. That is why I don't use this process on things about which I feel no discomfort. And, if I feel discomfort, it follows that there must be a gap between my emotional set point and my desire. And, for me, if I don't get honest about where I really am, I cannot move up the emotional scale; I cannot move up to better feelings.

It's like the old saying, "Until we agree to suffer, there will be no end to the suffering."

I know this sounds upstream. But, remember, I am only using this process on topics about which I'm feeling pain, feeling discomfort, and/or not manifesting like I want. So, in every case, there is obviously already a gap between vibration and desire.

We've been conditioned by society to dampen our desires as a way to ease the pain. That doesn't work!!!!! That's playing small!!!! The only thing that really works to ease the pain is to raise our vibrations to the levels of our desire! And this is the process that allows me to really raise my vibrations - not slap band-aids on them!

2. Feeling snippets of higher emotional set points amid the lower set points. Yes! When I am writing about my lower set point, I often feel flashes of hope and other better feelings. That is natural because I have been retraining my mind for a while now and I am getting used to "taking control" of my thoughts and finding/focusing on the better feeling thought!

Once again...bear in mind that I am only using this process on a topic that causes discomfort/pain/lack of manifestation. Obviously, my "real", most constant, and steady vibration on this topic is not
the better feeling thought (even though I am fully able to access the better feeling thought) or I wouldn't be needing to focus on this topic in the first place!!!

So I don't discount the better feeling thoughts. I just write about the current lower emotional set point (and the next highest one on the next day, and so on, and so on...)

And I don't go around all day dwelling on "worry" (or whatever the problematic emotional set point is) either. I am cognisant of the "worry" and I rephrase the specific topic in terms of the next highest emotional set point, but I don't make those feelings my dominant focus for the day. But, once again, if "worry" is truly where I am on a specific topic about which I feel pain/discomfort/lack of manifesting (and if I'm feeling discomfort than there must be a gap between vibration and desire, right?) than I was carrying "worry" around with me all day anyway! Make sense?
....................


1. The money came, yesterday, in the form of forgiven debt. Literally, we owed a bank a loan and the bank said, "You don't have to pay it back. We'll write it off and you owe us nothing."

(As an aside, an attorney who has been involved with this process just about fell out of his chair, saying, "Why in the hell would they do that for you???!!!!" When he said that, I had an initial flash of extreme fear, "Oh shit! He's right! The banks won't really do this for me!!!" Then I quickly relaxed and, remembering that the universe will move people and mountains to fulfill my desires, decided to use his reaction as an affirmation of how absolutely powerful and ironclad is the promise that we cannot have a desire that the universe will not fulfill! We are the ones who dream small and play small - the universe doesn't know the difference between finding a penny on the sidewalk versus a bank saying, "Greg, you don't owe us this huge loan anymore...you don't need to go bankrupt...I tell 'ya what, instead of going bankrupt, why don't you just forget about this huge loan for which we have your liability lock, stock, and barrel?" Too much!)

2. The "levels of emotional vibration"? Sorry. I tried to be consistant with the vernacular of my posts. I am always refering to the emotional guidance scale from Chapter 22 of Ask and It Is Given. So, for example, if I was at "Disappointment" (number 12) on a certain topic, then I would focus on moving to "Overwhelment" (number 11) next. Just follow the scale up.
...............


Just as Abraham promises, I've found that I start feeling better the moment I move just one tick up the emotional guidance scale! Abraham is right!!! "Worry" does feel better than "Blame"!! Is "Worry" where I want to be, in the long run? Heck no!! But I notice immediate relief from just one tick up the scale.

And I also notice that I start to see exciting, new manifestations as I move up the scale. With each movement in a better-feeling direction, I begin to manifest and allow a little more out of my vibrational escrow - regarding that specific topic! It feels a bit like slowly opening the top of a treasure chest! (I.E. Of course "Worry" doesn't allow as much from my vibrational escrow as "Passion" will!!! But "Worry" does allow more out of my vibrational escrow than "Blame" did!!)

The manifestations start to feel like a steady, powerful flow somewhere around "Hopefulness" and "Optimism"! So, depending on where you start on the emotional guidance scale, a steady flow of manifestation may only be a week or two away!! Just keep being honest and keep writing...that's all I do!!! The universe takes care of the rest!!
............................


This process I use and have begun to describe in this thread replaces my old process of "slapping a smiley face" on certain topics. It replaces the "if I never look in that closet, the mess doesn't really exist" paradigm!!!

I've never encountered any bad feelings, using this process, that I'm not already dealing with everyday anyway - no matter how "stuffed", denied, and glossed-over they might be!!!
.........................


Let me clarify: I'm only using this process on issues which are causing me pain and ones where I am having obvious, long-term difficulty manifesting within.

For example: this process took my family from sure bankruptcy to a release from litigation, debt forgiveness, and financial excess within a two month period. And, as amazing as that might sound, I'm trying not to overhype what has happened to us finanically since I employed this process. What is actually happening is much, much grander!!!

I don't use this process when I am having a bad day, feeling low energy, or feeling down. And, certainly, for instances like those, it would usually be silly to work my way up the emotional guidance scale, one emotion at a time.

No, the topics I use these techniques on are ones where a large gap exists between my vibration and my desire. And for such topics I've found it very helpful to advance slowly and thoughtfully. Why? Because I've usually invested a great deal of time and energy, previously, slapping band-aids on the topic in an effort to cover-up and make myself feel better. Never really looking at it honestly.

If I had been looking at it honestly, I undoubtedly wouldn't be feeling the big gap, the pain of the distance between my low vibration and my high desire!

For less "serious" issues/topics I am very often able to jump right up to joy with a healthy pivot. Often listening to an Abe recording or a great, high-vibration song will be enough to pivot me out of my "pothole." I don't take the time to stop at each emotional set point for those types of issues/topics.
......................


I want to reiterate that just one move up the emotional guidance scale, for a long-term bugaboo (like "money", "self worth", "relationships", etc.), brings relief and new manifestations appearing out of escrow!!! I'm not that high up the scale yet, but I'm higher up the scale than I was five days ago. And I'm noticing some cool stuff moving out of escrow to me!

The analogy I'm about to give is verified by science. One doesn't have to be into Abe to know this:

We are like pianos. When you strike a key on a piano, it causes a hammer to fall on a chord and a specific note is created. The note is created by the vibration of the chord you have struck by hitting the key.

Our thoughts are like the keys on a piano. We are creating "notes", every second of every day, through the vibrations of our thoughts. And, in our universe, like attracts like.

I like to think of bad-feeling thoughts as the deep, bass keys on my "piano" and the good-feeling thoughts as the higher keys on my "piano." And my every thought strikes a "chord", sending a vibration out into the universe and creating my reality.

The practice of moving up the emotional guidance scale, one emotion at a time, is just like moving up the scale on a piano keyboard one key at a time. Before too long, you're "playing" only the good-feeling "notes" on your "piano."

And you'd better be ready to duck as your desires come flying at you, out of escrow!!!
................................


I have experienced a lot of contrast this weekend. My wife and youngest son visited from North Carolina. I viewed this weekend as a chance to see how I was manifesting in relation to my desires surrounding self-worth. I experienced some amazing highs and some deflating lows.

Which, actually, is just about right. Concerning "self worth", I'm currently at the emotional set point of "boredom" (using my process I've described in this thread). I perceive "boredom" as a place of in-between vibration. Not great/not terrible. Not quite yet ready to quit playing small, but also not quite ready to start playing big. Lots of courage mixed with ample fear.

And that's pretty much what got reflected back to me. I'm going to keep writing on self-worth, because "boredom" is not where I want to stay long-term. But, for me, self-worth is a deep-seated belief system so I'm proceeding slowly and deliberately. Carefully! No slapping smiley faces over empty gas gauges!!!

Regarding money - I must report that I still rock!!! I rock. I rock. I rock. Thank you universe! 'Cause I love money and money loves me!
Over the course of the last few days I've had $600 arrive in the mail. I've had a credit card bill be "mysteriously" $450 less than I expected. And I've had a bank tell me I don't have to repay over $126,000 in loans!!!! (My attorney said to me today, "Greg, I have no idea why {this bank} is being so good to you!" But I knew!!! Because that's where I'm vibrating concerning money!!!!

Back to self worth for a moment - there is another thread where someone posted a passage from an Abraham workshop. Abraham said that self love is not about finding love flowing to us. It's about finding a way to let love flow through us from source. When love from source is flowing through us (to other people, places, and things) then we really experience what we really are. Love. And that is self love.

That meant a lot to me and I've been focusing on it today rather than feeling mad, sad, sorry for myself, or hurt.

It's been a while since I've posted (I've missed you, you beautiful creators!)

I want to keep this energy river flowing! I'm getting close to wrapping up some more debt and I want to post an update of my money manifestation process.

Since August, I have now paid off $21,575 in debt (using cold hard cash that I simply allowed to manifest)! And, since August, I have allowed banks to forgive $540,272 of debt (two attorneys have told me how unbelievable this is...but nothing is unbelievable unless I choose it to be so. And I ain't choosing to "unbelieve"!!!!).

Allowing these manifestations has taken a lot of energy and focus. In the process, I've learned to meditate much more deeply and more effectively! Actually, regarding "what I've learned", there is too much to post! I need to write a book!

Thank you universe, of which I am a part!!! Thank you universe, of which I am a worthy co-creator!!! I have so much love, money, joy, companionship, friendship, efficacy, and purpose!!! I have more than enough to fill my heart's desires!!!
.......................


Meditation? I'm no expert. Here's what works for me:

1. Sitting/resting meditation - I sit cross-legged and touch my thumb to my middle finger on each hand. I picture a large movie screen with the words "Our" and "Father" on the screen bigger than life. Then I focus on the blank space between "Our" and "Father."

All the while I chant "Ahhhhhh" (the name of God) and imagine good feelings flowing up from my groin to my head/face. Feelings like love, freedom, and abunance.

When thoughts come I do my best to let them float away.

On most days, I am able to spend a few moments without ANY problem thoughts. It is a state of no resistance and it is beautiful.

(A shout-out to Wayne Dyer for most of this)

2. Living meditation - during the day, when I feel resistance I mentally step back and say, "Oh, I'm resisting. How curious; that is interesting. What am I resisting? I don't have to do that." And the acceptance of my resistance (rather than trying to fight it) usually released it and I jump right back into the stream of source energy.

(A shout out to Lynn Grabhorne and Doreen Banaszak for this)

November has followed suite as a month of tremendous allowing for money manifestation. I'm still waiting to hear final word on our last two pieces of big debt, but my desire is for the banks to forgive those two as they've done the rest.

I've paid off almost $30,000 in debt this month! So far! And had another $10,000-plus of debt forgiven. Where does the money come from? You know the answer...I am allowing the universe to share it with me.

Case in point: an albatross of a property was finally sold this month. The buyer paid cash and is rehabbing it. There were some snags on my end, which delayed the sale for a couple of weeks. The buyer became increasing agitated, for various reasons, and called my realtor on two occasions demanding reductions in his purchase price. Both times we gave him reductions - amounting to total discounts well over $3,000.

I never stressed on the loss of money. And I never focused on it. I just said, "Thank you, God. Thank you, Universe."

At the closing last week, the buyer showed up and paid us the full purchase price! There was no mention of any of the discounts and no anger on his part. Believe me, this buyer is an experienced, old-hand at what he does...he didn't "just forget" to give us $3,500 less for the property. I have NO explaination for this other than the explaination I have for finding money on the ground. Thank you, Universe!

I've been writing about my beliefs using Lynn Grabhorn's "Playbook" and going through the exercises diligently. It's been making a huge difference (improvement) in my daily experiences. My beliefs about some things just don't serve me, I'm finding.

For example, after writing about it I realized that I believed that "I need to be punished for my mistakes." Also that "I must EARN and DESERVE good things." Now...there is nothing inherently wrong with those two beliefs - I am free to believe them if I want.

But guess what? I don't want to believe them any more because they act as resistance to the flow of source energy and all good things. So I continue to play a game of "imagine if those things I believe aren't true."

Imagination is so wonderful and so powerful - our thoughts are real! Over time I can feel my new beliefs taking shape and the old beliefs atrophying!

I love this life. I love you. Thank you for reading this and making my experiences even more real and wonderful!


................


November is coming to a close this week. Although its not over yet, the month of November has seen me repay over $27,000 worth of debt.

And, separate from that $27,000, the tally for loans I've gotten banks to forgive now stands at close to $700,000 (since August). In fact, I have just one more loan I'm waiting to hear a "yes" on and they'll all have been forgiven.

I have been doing a lot of steady, daily writing using Lynn Grabhorn's "Excuse Me...Your Life is Waiting Workbook." If you don't have this book, I highly recommend it.

Just this month, I have been inspired to take action with my writing. I've recently pumped out a lot of content for my dad's website (he is a retired psychiatrist who now speaks and writes about the powerful natural medicine of humor), including three articles which describe why humor can be rocket fuel for those using the law of attraction.

I've also started a lens on Squidoo called "Manifesting Abundance", about the science of the law of attraction. I am a science geek and I love writing about how quantum physics explains exactly why and how we are able to manifest abundance.

In addition, I've started a blog called "Manifesting Abundance", chronicling both my experiences with the law of attraction (since I became fully introduced to it through Abraham this summer) and the science of manifesting abundance.

Most of my post-authoring energy is being used on these three inspired action-items. But I will continue to post about this journey of financial manifestation. Of particular focus for me will be manifesting website traffic to my dad's website, my blog, and my lens (and, eventually, my own website); book sales; and affiliate sales.

In other words, I'm going to use the same principles and exercises that allowed me to manifest $700,000 in forgiven bank loans (so far) and almost $60,000 in debt paid off (so far) with cold, hard cash since August, on sales and "income." All that repayment was done with no increase in family income - in fact, if you remember, our family income has dropped because of my wife's internship.
::surfer

So I'll be letting you know how the sales and income go (in addition to continuing to report about the forgiven loans and paid off debt). I've taken a lot of inspired action and I will continue.

But I expect that everything will really start taking off when I start doing the familiar exercises I've described in this thread (such as moving up the emotional scale, pre-writing thank you letters, the placemat process, etc.).
....................


Many wonderful Abers have been curious about my debt-forgiveness process.

To date, I have gotten banks to forgive over $700,000. As in, “You don’t owe us a dime, Greg.” I’ve had two attorneys in the last couple months look at me with their mouths agape, saying, “How in the hell did you get them to agree to that? Why would they do that for you?”

Bear in mind, our feelings are so much more important than our actions. How you feel about something will always, always, always trump how you act. Even if you take the greatest action in the world, it cannot overcome your feelings about it.

That said: the action for this process is easy. Simply call the lending institution and ask. Every entity which lends money has to deal with default; all these companies have divisions which work with borrowers in, or nearing, default.

Be honest with them. Of course present the facts in a way that works in your favor, but do not lie.

They will have forms for you to fill out. Fill them out promptly, attach a detailed letter explaining your circumstances, and mail them back the next day.

Give them a week and a half. If you haven’t heard from them, call them back. If you can’t speak with the individual reviewing your case, try to get the name of that person. Begin building a relationship with this person – leave polite, business-like messages and always do what you say you’re going to do, when you say you’re going to do it.

If dealing directly with the lending institution doesn’t go anywhere, you may feel inspired to search for, and contact, legitimate organizations that work with borrowers in, or nearing, default. Professional assistance can, at times, be invaluable.

Now - how you feel while you perform the actions I’ve described is the important part! Here are some things I do to make sure I’m “feeling it” instead of worrying, being afraid, saying, “They’ll never do this for me!”, doubting, and/or focusing on what I don’t have:

1. Anytime you’re contacting the institution, whether via forms you’re mailing in or a telephone call you’re making, think, “This is going to be a great opportunity for this person to do the things they’re really good at and the things they want to do. This person has been waiting for an opportunity to help a deserving person like me – waiting for just this kind of an opportunity to make a difference in a deserving person’s life!”

Think those sentences any time you find yourself wondering (or worrying) about what the answer to your requests is going to be! Repeat it over and over until it becomes your expectation when you think about your lending institutions.

2. Write thank you letters, in advance, to the person, or people, with whom you’re working. As soon as you know a name, sit down and pre-write that person a detailed thank you letter, thanking them for the exact outcome you desire. Go into detail about how they’ve helped a truly deserving individual (you!) who will not be wasting the precious second chance they’ve been given! Address this letter and sign it; it is a real letter that you’re simply not sending YET
!

This is an important process in creating an expectation for a certain outcome. It forces you to walk through all the “they’ll never do this for me” fears. Remember: those fears are only a belief! Just a simple belief! You can just as easily believe, “they’ll do this for me”!

I’ve been amazed at how many of my letters, when I go back and read them, were 100% prophetic. Nostradamus eat your heart out!

3. Once you’ve taken the action necessary and you’ve performed your process techniques as described here, forget about it! Go on and live your life as if you have no problem! Because you don’t!

In fact, take it a step further. Conjure exactly how it will feel to have this debt gone. Revel in the security, the safety, the elation, and the freedom! Then, once you’ve held those wonderful feelings in your heart, make a decision to feel that way right now. All the time!
Live your life as if you’re already free of the debt. Because you are! Literally (think about that one for a while).
...................


This morning I was balancing out November's register and updating my debt repayment schedule.

I set a goal, back in September, to have a particular debt ($11,000) paid off by the end of 2007. As I updated my records, I saw that with a December payment of $1,900 I will have it paid off! As I updated my checking accounts, I looked for the $1,900 and opened myself up to finding it (as I have done so many times since I started these processes last August).

I knew it would be there, yet I only found $900.

But that didn't bother me at all! I knew finding the additional $1,000 during the month would be child's play. After all, I've "found" over $60,000 in cold, hard cash since August. What trouble will the universe have coming up with the additional $1,000 I need to reach my goal of paying off this debt?

About 2:30, I got the mail. In the mail I found a check for $1,000! I just sat down and laughed, filled with satisfaction and gratitude.

Thank you universe!
.................


Today I sent the final payment to close out a $10,000 debt! And I only just started paying on it in October! When I crafted the note accompanying the last check today I wrote, "I hope this money blesses you and enriches your life. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share it with you."

Now I'm raising my vibrations and setting goals for book sales and website income in 2008.

I spent the first 40 years of my life thinking that my thoughts were reactions to my world. Funny. Good to know, now, that its the other way around!
.............


Here are two things I’ve learned as I’ve transitioned from deliberately attracting financial freedom (as you read about in this thread) to increasing my active, positive income.

Here’s the first thing:

Have you ever gone for a jog and finished dripping with sweat? Your jog was over, you leaned forward and grabbed your shorts to stretch and rest, and your sweat dripped off your forehead and hit the pavement.

You weren’t sweating so profusely because you leaned forward and grabbed your shorts were you? No, of course not. Your sweat was coming from the hearty exercise you were engaged in twenty minutes ago.

Your (then) current sweat represented the results of your previous exercise.

Your present physical reality is the same way. Whatever and whoever currently surrounds you is the culmination of your past beliefs and actions, not your current ones. Looking at your present reality as anything else is folly.

So do not make the mistake of defining yourself by what you see and experience when you look at your current circumstances. Your current circumstances have little to do with how you are deliberately attracting today. You will deliberately attract different things in the future based on today’s beliefs and actions.

That’s great news if you find yourself in an undesirable situation (like I was in) such as an unfulfilling relationship, an empty bank account, or a mountain of debt! Free yourself from the self-made prison of defining yourself by your present circumstances and surroundings.

Here’s the second thing:

Remember that everyone else in the world is really only you in a different package. And, in turn, you are the same thing as everyone else in the world – just in your own unique package. So if you desire more customers (or desire debt forgiveness as I did), all you’re seeking is for you to give yourself money (or for you to forgive yourself of debt, as the case may be).

Strange, huh? What the heck am I talking about?

The material world is a big quantum ocean of (mostly) hydrogen, oxygen, carbon, and nitrogen. From this ocean every single material person, place, or thing is manifested. But no matter how different two “things” may be, they are both just part of this big quantum ocean in which we exist.

Think of a warm spot in the Pacific Ocean. That warm spot remains even though billions of water molecules are passing through it each second, becoming part of the warm spot and then leaving it to become a different part of the Pacific. You are like a warm spot in the ocean.

It’s like Wayne Dyer has said: the ocean is God and you are a wave on that ocean. (And just as a wave is what the ocean is doing, he goes on to say, you are what God is “doing”)

There are billions and billions of warm spots in this quantum ocean. Each warm spot is a person, or a flower, or a candle, or a clock, or a dollar bill, etc. But all the warm spots are just a part of this quantum ocean – irrespective of how diverse they may be when compared to each other!

That puts a different perspective on desiring more customers doesn’t it? All you have to do is get yourself in a place where you know you deserve more love and more reflected value…from yourself! And you’ll soon be deliberately attracting lots more money – just as you desire.

And just as I am! I’ve raised my daily intake from my website from $12 a day to $14 a day in the past month. And counting. Simply by applying the same vibration raising process (I describe in this thread) to “making website sales” as I did/do to “financial freedom.”

Try it yourself! I’ll keep you posted on my progress…
...............


Here is the process:

1. I identify an issue or topic about which I am experiencing emotional pain. About which I am mired in a lower reality than my desires. Remember that all emotional pain is simply the distance between your vibration and your desires - the greater the distance the greater the pain.


2. I chose "making money from my website" as a topic to which I will apply this process. I have spent, literally, hundreds of hours working on one of my websites and, for over a year, I have been stuck at an income level lower than my desire for it. Hence, there is a gap between my vibration (what I am currently experiencing) and my desire ($100/day).

3. I take out a piece of paper and a pen and I write about my feelings regarding "making money from my website." I let myself freely flow anything that wants to come out and I write it down. I stick, however, to what I am REALLY feeling about it - NOT how I want to feel about it or how I think I "ought" to feel about it.

These feelings are not going to be positive. They do not feel good either. It takes courage to write about them honestly! Because they are no fun to think about and deal with!

But here's the thing: I am not writing down anything, no matter how negative, that I'm not already dealing with everyday on, at the very least, an unconscious level. In other words, writing about these bad feelings doesn' t make them real. They are already real - I'm just not in the habit of honestly looking them square in the face every day.

Let's get honest here - it's much more comfortable to slap a smiley face over the gas gauge then it is to go fill the gas tank! Of course we would never do that in real life because we couldn't get anywhere without gas in our car. But we do it all the time to ourselves - spiritually - when we slap smiley faces over our bad feelings.

So with this initial writing, I officially declare - no more smiley faces on "making money from my website"! I don't feel good about it! I hate that I'm not making more money! It sucks to feel this unworthy!

4. After "vomiting" my real, honest, current feelings about "making money from my website" on my page, I look on the emotional guidance scale and identify where I am. In my case I see that my writing aligns my most closely with "worry" because I am worried that I'm never going to see more income from all my effort. I'm worried that all my effort has been wasted. I'm worried that I don't deserve more money from my website.

5. At this point, I write "Tomorrow - doubt" at the bottom of the writing I just did. Because "doubt" is the next highest emotion on the emotional guidance scale. And then I start thinking about "making money from my website" from the perspective of "doubt". I meditate about it, and I let it ruminate in my mind.

6. The next day, I sit down and write about "making money from my website" from the perspective of doubt. I give myself permission to really feel "doubt" about making money from my website. I roll around in it. I set up camp in "doubt" and write about it and write about it and write about it.

What I find is that, with that much effort and attention, I am able to really make an actual transition from "worry" to "doubt" regarding "making money with my website". First of all, it's not that big of a leap. It's a realistic up-tick of emotional perspective; it feels real and genuine because it's a slight improvement...NOT a smiley face slapped over an empty gas gauge!

Sometimes it takes a couple days to really embrace and "be" the next highest emotion. And that's fine. It takes as long as it takes - but I don't procrastinate on the process intentionally.

7. I move only one emotion up the scale at a time. One day at a time. Any faster becomes "slapping a smiley face".

As I move up the scale, I notice that what I'm manifesting improves dramatically - sometimes with only one tick up! That's because I'm vibrating (and, thus, attracting) differently even with only one tick up the scale.

I also notice that my perspectives change as I move up the scale. What I thought I would be thinking about and writing about often turns out very differently in real practice. For example, I started writing about "making more money from my website" thinking about people making clicks and purchases.

Now, ten spots up the emotional guidance scale, I'm no longer focused on that at all. Instead I've transitioned, in a very natural progression, into focusing on delivering greater value (and impuning greater value into the work I've already done). I now understand that delivering value is what it's all about (and feeling that what I'm doing has great value).

If I'm delivering great value the universe will reflect that back to me. I don't have to sweat how that will happen, it's the law! And it's already happening. I'm seeing a couple more dollars per day already!


.....................


Try writing about pessimism. You may be suprised by what comes out. Sometimes I find very unexpected perspectives that help me experience a more positive vibration. In the end, though, the labels for these emotional set points are just labels and you may need to move up to the next one on the list (that hasn't happened to me yet).

I was listening to the Abraham special subjects CD while driving to North Carolina last Friday and Abraham very clearly explained (I'm paraphrasing here) that when you have repeated resistance on a topic or an "issue" it is in your best interests to go inside and work with that topic or "issue."

When you are experiencing a rogue blip of resistance, however, it is not necessary to do inside work; you can just vibrate yourself back into a place of allowing.

As I've said in this thread, this process is for those areas where I am experiencing repeated resistance. I found that I needed a "process" to go inside and correct long-standing issues of resistance (around money especially). If you are like me, I encourage you to work this process methodically and mechanically - see for yourself if it works.

I know this - slapping on smiley faces sure didn't work for me!
.............


I, too, have been one of those "Sydney-or-the-bush" emotional types. I wore either rose-colored glasses or shit-colored glasses - either it was fantastic or it sucked. And those two perspectives were almost always either not necessary or not real.

I still don't always trust those mid-range emotions, but I find them more realistic and accessible, as I climb the emotional scale, than my old, fake quantum leap to joy.
..............


Where I am on this topic: I've taken a couple weeks to meditate on "belief and positive expectation" regarding "earning more money from my website". The move from "optimism" to "belief and positive expectation" is not one I am taking lightly. I am just about ready to start writing about "earning more money from my website" from the perspective of "belief and positive expectation".

Feels like I will write about it today, as a matter of fact. Because the egg is hatching, so to speak. My perspective has grown and I'm in a new place of vibration.

I filled out my ledger for December yesterday. I am accustomed to earning approximately $430/month from my website. (I'm refering to the website I have for my Father's business, not anything I've built for LOA teachings). In December, I earned a little over $2,000.

All with my mind!

There are as many different universes as their are observers - applying my process to "earning more money from my website) is showing me that very clearly. I am utterly amazed at the different perspectives, energies, manifestations, and inspirations which occur at each level of vibration!

No wonder some people are happy and successful no matter what's "occuring" around them...those "occurances" aren't occuring around those people - just me! Except now I'm one of those people too!

Things are bursting open all around me at this new point of vibration. Opportunities, options, ideas, time, energy, partnerships, etc are pouring out of me. Value, love, and appreciation are pouring out of me. And the coolest thing is that, although I can point to lots of specific actions I'm taking, I know I'm doing this all with my mind!

And you can too!


................

Questions...answers.

Namaste - yes, I use this process on two different issues at the same time. I've never done it on more than two at once because it becomes confusing to differentiate the feelings. Two is reasonable and realistic for me as long as I keep the two items distinct and separate.

PinkStar - there is nothing wrong with quantum leaps. That's how a 100 pound woman is able to lift her car to free her trapped child! Think how long it would take her to slowly build the belief that she could lift a car if she did it over time in a gym!

But...quantum leaps are not good for long-term results when dealing with long and deeply held beliefs. And, remember, I am only using this process on issues with a long and deep history of not manifesting my desires. Issues where there is a significant gap between my vibration and my desire; if I were in a place of higher vibration with these issues I wouldn't need to do my process on them (because I'd already be manifesting my desires!)

Kizzy - I don't know what you're seeing, but you look beautiful to me! Which brings up the point that there are as many universes as there are observers. That is not mysticism - that is science. Want proof? Take your dog for a walk tonight and I'll bet she'll see, hear, and smell things that you can't!

As soon as you arrive at a new point of vibration you are, literally, seeing a different universe. That's because the physical universe is created (out of the quantum field) through your expectations. Once again, this is not mysticism but science. Want proof? Read about the double-slit experiment - the "only thing you need to know about quantum physics" according to Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman.

By the way...that quantum field I just mentioned? It is a measurable, photographical, non-local field that fills all the "space" between material objects. From that field, all physical matter is created. And the quantum field is pure, 100% potential! Potential to be anything and everything! The quantum field can produce a baby, a cow, a penny, a rock, or a butterfly, or anything in your imagination, easily and effortlessly.

Why am I mentioning this? The quantum field is what Abraham calls the "vibrational escrow". Vibrational escrow is real science, if you had any doubts about that put them aside. Vibrational escrow is just another term to describe the quantum field. Other terms for it? The universe, God, the field of infinite possibilities, Brahman, etc.

In fact, if you ask a theologian to describe the qualities of “God” and ask a physicist to describe the qualities of the “quantum field” they will both say the same things. Everywhere, infinite, omniscient, ever present, representing all possibilities, eternal, the source of all life, the unifying force of the universe, etc.

So, the perfect manifesting day? What I'm about to reveal is awesome. And it comes straight from my IB. The perfect manifesting day is a day spent in as much contact with God (or the quantum field) as possible.

If you want to manifest, you go to the source. You go to the field of all possibilities. You go to God (or the quantum field) - the source of you, of planets, of star systems, of nebulas, of galaxies, of everything!

Where do you find that source? Look "under your nose" and know that you are a part of that source. It is more than in you; the source is
you.

Okay, so that's where you find the source, but how do you access the source?

The source is found between your thoughts.

The source is the originator of your thoughts. You always thought that your brain was thinking, right? Your brain is merely carrying out commands - commands give by the source. Commands given by the part of you that is infinite and eternal.

To "spend time with God" all you have to do is spend time between your thoughts. That moment of peace and stillness between your thoughts? That's God!

Spend time with God and you will get what you're looking for; God always answers, we're just not practiced listeners. We think we are our brain. We think we are our thoughts. We are obsessed with thinking and we think our physical body is the thinker.

God is the thinker. God is waiting for us in the stillness, the gap, between our thoughts. And that is where meditation can take you - to that gap. To God.

God is waiting for you to commune with God. To commune with yourself, really. Go there. Meditate, imagine the blank space between two words (such as "our" and "father"), and reside in that blank space. With practice that stillness, the gap, grows. And you can go there all the time. And then miracles happen.

But you want to know a secret? You don't have to wait; miracles are happening RIGHT NOW! For you! Appreciate them to grow others.

I LOVE this!  Thank you Greg!

And thank you Pink Star for pulling together the parts of Greg's posts.  I haven't visited this thread for bit and it's been great to drop in and check it out again.  :)

Hi again, Greg~

There is something that I am curious about in regards to
the actual process of moving up the scale.  I've read over your previous posts (BTW, A GIANT THANK YOU to Pink Star for
consolidating all of Greg's posts! That made it so much easier to read!) But I didn't find any relation to what I am wanting to know... which is...
When you experience a drop in your setpoint, do you begin again at the initial setpoint from where you started OR do you start where you left off OR... What do you do???

As you know, I've been at this for a few days now, and things were going really well, then today... :?  Well, I began this morning moving into the notch of Contentment on the EGS.  Quite honestly, it felt to be a tiny stretch for me to go there but
I thought I would just be easy about it & experiment w/ it to see what happened.  Later in the day, throughout the day, I found myself vibrating at my initial setpoint, that of Frustration/Impatience/Irritation.  By this evening, I had dropped down even further, feeling Disappointment that I had been doing so well & now I'm back to where I started.
OK... so, I've accepted where I presently am and I am feeling comfortable returning to the notch of Boredom, since Contentment felt like sort of a stretch.  I was curious if you have had any similar experiences & if so, how did you deal w/ them?
Also, any insight you may have would be much appreciated.

I'm still feeling very excited about the application of this process... I feel great things happening & moving into place
in the quantum ocean!

Thank you again!
Many blessings~
Natty

Natty, I had a flash of insight in working with this that clarified something similar for me. (It may or may not be helpful for you, of course!)

So there I was, cruising along at contentment. Which is where I still am: I really want to stabilize here. It's interesting, as a sidebar, I've started to realize that this thing I do - I can only describe it as a damping-down of a negative emotion - far from being me doing anything helpful, is really me refusing to climb UP the scale on a structural basis.

Anyhoo, so I'm hanging out in contentment. It's nice. Periodically, I'll have very short "flashes" or bursts of EXCITEMENT, and I'll also have short flashes or bursts of much more gloomy feelings.

Previously, I've thought that maybe I was edging into excitement, or glumness, whatever that burst of feeling is. But now I'm starting to think that wherever you are, particularly when you're not fully and completely stabilized there, you still have vibrational access to the range of emotions on either side: but the further away the emotion is, the shorter and shallower the access is. So I can have these "bursts" of thrilling enthusiasm, but it of course doesn't stick. It can't stick. That's not where I am!

And I think that the glum feelings are like that too. I have noticed myself focusing on them and going "Oh geez, here we go!" so I'm trying to just gently observe and release. Just because I still have access to those feelings doesn't mean I have to focus on them. The majority of my vibration is happing at a much higher frequency. (I think.)

Interestingly - and cheering stuff, to me - even though I'm not even up in hope yet, I have noticed a number of things on this subject start to open up: four different people who would be able to help me along my career path (that's what I'm working on) have contacted ME. I didn't reach out to them! They came to me. What's even more interesting (again, to me, lol!) is that one of hte people is someone who'd previously contacted me, but who had disappeared. And suddenly here she was, sorry for the long silence, but I'd love to read your project... (I'm a writer, although my rambling here may not show it. HAH.)

Anyway. Whenever I'm feeling those little dips, I just sort of ignore them and try to get back to where I was feeling mostly stabilized. This has been a pretty big insight for me, but I know exactly what you're talking about, and I hope you find some relief.

Many blessings & thanks to you, Ella, for your input!  ::hugging

Actually, for the past few days, I have experienced what
you are talking about... Yes, it has felt like "flashes" of
emotion on either side of where I am on the EGS.  And I was
very aware of what was going on...  And like Greg said, my
internal response was that of, "Oh, isn't that interesting?!"  But today felt different... The emotion felt more constant, not like the flashes I had experienced in days past.  I am attributing it to my reaching for Contentment, even though I didn't quite feel up to speed w/ myself to go there just yet.  And as a result, I slid back down into Frustration.  Which is OK... I entered into journaling about Contentment knowing that it was a stretch, but I was curious to know what would happen if I went there anyway. 
:allgood
After all, it is a "process", right? ::chin
A very interesting one at that!

Enjoying the ride~

PS~Cheers for you & your driftwood! You are on your way!

jmac and Natty - thanks so much for saying you were happy with me consolidating Greg's posts. I had been worrying about what others thought of what I had done.

That actually taught me a very good lesson. About my insecurity! Caring too much about what others think.

I started the process yesterday on 2 issues - Money and Self-worth. ::nod

I scripted free-hand for around a couple of hours .. really dredged up those negative feelings that I don't normally admit to. (I'm famous for those fake smileys)

I decided to stay in the feelings of insecurity for another day, so I can really feel what I feel .. then move up to Jealousy tomorrow (Oooh, I have a LOT to cover there!)

I am so into doing this!

Thanks again Greg and all of you on this thread. I KNOW this is going to change my life for the better. I know I am a mirror of my world, so I will also change others lives for the better.

Hey Pink,

You forgot the most important part of each post you referenced: 'To the God in You"!

::devil

But, really, that statement is another point to ponder.  We each have a "God in embryo" in us.  Waiting to be ushered forth each day.  Waiting in the gap between our thoughts.

I think it's really cool what you did, clipping my posts together.  Thank you for the that - the effort it took was, I'm sure, beneficial to you, but it feels like a big compliment to me.  Bless you.

Natty,

Yes.  I "backslide" too. 

Sometimes it comes from a case of the HALTS (getting too Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired, or Serious).  In which case I quit paying any attention to my thoughts and take care of me.

Sometimes I'm simply resisting.  When that happens, I step back and say, "Gee.  I'm resisting.  How curious.  I wonder why I'm doing that.  It's okay for me to do, but where is it coming from and why?"

Adopting that perspective immediately puts me back into allowing mode.  Puts me in an accepting mode.  And then, guess what?  I'm no longer resisting!

I haven't found that I have to go way back down the scale.  But I have found that I probably moved up to the next highest emotion too fast.  (That's called, of course, "slapping a smiley face on it".  When I slap smiley faces on, it gets scary and feels fake/out of control/impeding doom ahead.)  In that case, I slow down and spend a little more time with the previous emotional set point.

When I relax, allow, and put my attention back on the previous emotional set point the scary, fake/out of control/impeding doom feelings disappear almost immediately.  And I'm back on track.

If no one's told you today, I love you.

To the God in You,

Greg

Hi Greg

How do you recognise that set point that you have established?

Is it the absence of fear?

Cheers

Simon
