Your Influence in this Vibrational
(Excerpted from Abraham-Hicks Workshop Recordings)
Usually our physical friends are not at one with the idea of
contrast, because most still believe some version of "the world is
not as it should be, and we have, or you have, or all have come
forth in order to make the world a better place... to right the
wrongs and get rid of the bad stuff." But from your broader
Nonphysical Perspective, you do not see this time/space reality as
broken or inferior or as something that is supposed to become
something else. Instead, you see it as a delightful, balanced,
contrasting experience that is the best of anything that you know
for bringing a focuser, like you, to a place of focus.
Contrast is essential to new decisions -- and a new decision is
that leading edge thought that takes thought beyond that which it
has been before.
Without contrast, you could not focus Energy, and focusing of
Energy is nothing more than coming to conclusions, or becoming
decisive. And since everything is about Energy, and since you are
molders, or focusers, of Energy, nothing will ever be more
exhilarating or satisfying to you than to sift, or sort, through
contrast, find a clear decision from the contrast, focus upon that
which you have decided and align with the decision -- and then feel
the Energy, that creates worlds, flowing through you for the
Creation of that which you are holding as your focus.
Most of you still are at your happiest when conditions are at
their best, for most of you are still primarily observing the
conditions. And it is our desire to assist you in setting your own
Tone, so that no matter what the conditions are, that you may
observe, they will not influence you to a vibration different from
your Source Vibration. That is the ultimate physical experience: Be
so well connected with your Core Energy that no matter what you see,
or observe, it does not drag you off into the bushes into a
vibration that is foreign to who you really are.
We want, very much, for you to come to the conscious knowing that
you are Creators and that what a Creator is, is one who focuses
Energy. We want you to come to feel the oneness of your physical
perspective and your Nonphysical Perspective. We want you to feel
the fun and the clarity and the passion and the enthusiasm and the
fulfillment of being a physical being focused in this physical body,
using your focusing mechanism, your very individual perspective, to
focus Energy. We want you to feel the hands-on creating that molding
Energy really is. We want you to begin to direct Energy on purpose
and to know, by the way you feel, how you are directing it, how in
alignment with Source Energy you are to begin with, and how much of
the Source Energy -- that you are summoning through your desire --
that you are allowing to flow toward your object of Creation. The
Universe is vibrationally based, and you -- as physical extensions
of this Nonphysical Energy that has created all of this -- are
vibrational beings too. Everything vibrates, and everything is
communicating and reacting, responding and integrating with other
things that are vibrating.
Most have not been taught to be aware of Energy. Instead, you
have been taught to pay attention to the results of how others have
flowed Energy. So you are evaluating the results and reacting to the
results and cataloging and pigeonholeing the results, but it is a
rare physical being who, in the moment of the Energy flow, is aware
of what he is doing.
The universe is vibrationally based, and you -- as physical
extensions of this Nonphysical Energy that has created all of this
-- you are vibration itself. You are vibrational beings too.
Everything is about Energy, and everything is about vibration.
Everything vibrates, and everything is communicating and reacting,
responding and integrating with other things that are vibrating. In
other words, this is a Vibrational Universe that we are all a part
Everything is vibrating, and as you give your attention to it,
and hold your attention upon it for as little as 17 seconds,
whatever its vibration is, begins to be included in your vibrational
mix. And so, as that which you give your attention to is included in
your vibration, your vibration is then affected by that which you
are giving your attention to. And as your vibration is affected by
whatever it is you are giving your attention to -- the entire
Universe now responds to your vibrational output differently than it
Your Sixth Vibrational Sense
In your physical environment, you have become accustomed to
translating vibration into meaning for yourself, in many ways. Your
physical senses are, without exception, vibrational translators. In
other words, what you see with your eyes is a physical
interpretation of vibration. What you hear with your ears is a
physical interpretation of vibration. Now, that isn't quite so hard
to understand, is it? You've come to know that vibration and sound
are same, and so that's easy for you to accept. Through your radio
and telephone and television airwaves, you understand that vibration
can be translated into things that your physical senses can
understand. But what we want you to hear from us is that you have a
sensor within you that understands and translates, for you, even the
most subtle of Universal Vibrations. Since the Universe, in which
you live, even this physical extension of the Nonphysical Source, is
all vibrational, then when you come to understand that what you are
feeling is telling you about vibration -- then, for the first time,
you become powerful in your own experience.
Most people are not powerful in their own experience because they
are observing only with their eyes or ears or nose, or fingers. They
are using their physical sensors to observe. And as they are
observing, they take on that vibration. That vibration, whatever it
is that they are observing, good or bad, is now radiating within
them. It now becomes part of their point of attraction, and they are
now affected by it, profoundly.
When Observers Become Bombers
Most do not understand that they can set a Tone that will keep
them from taking on all those different vibrations. And so, most
feel absolutely susceptible, or vulnerable, to whatever vibration is
out there. That's why you cower and defend. That's why you feel
vulnerable and defensive. That's why you have all of those laws and
rules that bog you down. That's why you bomb those who don't
understand you. That's why you isolate yourself from those who are
different. Because, as long as you feel susceptible to their
vibrations - then you want to limit their vibrations. If you can't
control your own vibration, then you want to control what other
people do. Because, as you see them doing things that are upsetting
to you, and you believe that the only way you can feel good is if
you don't see things that make you feel bad, then that's a tricky
trap. Isn't it? So we want to give you a basis of understanding of
how this all works.
The Powerful Law of Attraction
Everything is vibrational, and the way you attract, or the way
you are allowing, things into your experience - is by the powerful
Law of Attraction. It is really the only law that is worth spending
much time talking about, because everything happens by Law of
Attraction. What Law of Attraction says is, "Those vibrations that
are same, come together." In other words, "That which is like unto
itself is drawn". Whenever you are offering a vibration, other
things in your physical Universe that are vibrating in that same
vibration - you and those things now have a relationship. Whenever
the transmitter of a radio signal sends out a signal, and whenever
you tune your tuner to the same signal - you can hear what they are
saying, and the same sort of thing is happening to you on an
unconscious, vibrational level all the time. When you offer a
thought, the thought is vibrating, and - you offer this vibrating
thought, other thoughts that are like it, you now have access to.
In order to really understand Law of Attraction, we want to give
you this one simple example, because once you get this, everything
else will begin to make more sense to you: Law of Attraction means
inclusion. In other words, there's no such thing as "law of
detraction". There is no such thing as "law of get it away from me".
There's no such thing as "law of exclusion". There's no such thing
of "law of no, I do not want that". There is only inclusion, and
what that means is, whatever I am giving my attention to, I am
including in my experience.
Attention To It Includes It
When I see something I want and I look at it and I spend as short
a time as 17 seconds observing it, feeling it, being a part of it,
talking about it, giving my attention to it ... and I say "Yes" to
this thing I want, I am including this thing I want in my vibration.
It literally becomes a part of my signal, which means, by Law of
Attraction, now I have more access to that. But when I see things
that I don't want and I say "No" to them. "Get away from me. I want
you not, burglar or murderer or disease or this unwanted thing..."
when you observe this thing that you do not want, in your shouting
of "No" at it, you are including this thing that you do not want in
your vibration. When you say "Yes' to something, you include it.
When you say, "No' to something, you include it. It is attention to
it that includes it.
So here you are, bless your hearts, moving around in your
physical environment, looking all over the place, including all
kinds of things in your vibration, and then wondering, "Why is this
happening to me? Why isn't that happening to me?" Once you get it
that the Universe is responding absolutely, utterly, sensitively, to
the vibration that you are offering, and once you begin to
understand how to offer your vibration on purpose - now you are in
absolute control on purpose -- now you are in absolute control of
your experience. You are an extension of your Source Energy,
fulfilling your reason for being.
You Are A Creator
The Energy of your Source - some call it Soul, some call it God
Force - this Source Energy is flowing to you and through you at all
times. It is the Creative Energy that continues to Create. And you
are a Creator, like a vortex or a channel or a vessel, intending to
take this Stream of Energy that Creates worlds and funnel it,
through your desire, for further extension of Creation.
Have you heard it said, "Ask and it is given?" Well, what that
means is, when, through your physical experience and through this
powerful and wonderful contrast that you live, you come upon a new
conclusion or a new decision or a new desire... when that desire is
within you, even if you do not speak it with your words, the
Universal Energy begins to flow toward your desire - and if you are
a vibrational match to your desire, it happens quickly.
Often, you are not a vibrational match to your own desire because
your desire was born out of contrast. In other words, let's say that
you are sick, and in your discomfort you begin to say things like,
"Oh, I wish I were well. I really want to be well again," but your
attitude is, "I am sick." That's your mood, "I'm sick." That's the
way you feel, "I'm sick." So, from that place of not feeling good,
from your place of sickness, you say, "I want wellness. Why does the
Universe not answer my request? What's all this garbage about 'Ask
and it is given'? I've been asking and asking and asking and I still
The Formula for Creating says: Identify your desire and then be
sure that you are a vibrational match to your desire. So that the
signal that you are offering is signal. So that when you are
offering the signal of wellness, then wellness becomes your
experience. Then you say, "Well, Abraham, that's easy to do for
someone who is already feeling well. It's easy to offer the
vibration of wellness when I am well. But how do I offer the
vibration of wellness when I am sick? And we say, by remembering
when you were well, by imagining that you are well, by pretending
that you are well, by de-emphasizing the fact that you are sick and
re-emphasizing the feeling of wellness. That is your work. In other
words, that's what Creative endeavor is about.
You did not come forth just to regurgitate what-is: You did not
say, "I'll go forth and look around, and as I look I'll vibrate and
as I vibrate I'll create, and whatever will be, will be. There's
good. There's bad. And I'll just look all around. I'll be very
objective. I'll be very balanced. I'll see bad things and I'll
create bad things, and I'll see good things and I'll create good
things." You did not say that anymore than you said, "I will eat
food that tastes bad as much as I eat food that tastes good."
You said, "I will go forth, and through my experience I will
conclude what I desire. And once I have come to the conclusion of
what I desire, I will achieve vibrational harmony with that - and by
Law of Attraction, it will then he my experience.'
It is our desire to assist you in understanding how it is that
you offer your vibration. We want to help you to become conscious of
the vibration that you are offering, and to help you offer a
vibration that does match your desire, because when you do, the
Universe must deliver to you that which is the object of your
desire. And, in time, and not so long from now, you will be one who
is not so fixated on the Creation of the thing - but you will be one
who is fascinated with the process of the energy flowing through
Enjoy The Process
It's wonderful to create all of those things. We want you to have
everything that you want. We want every idea that comes to you to
manifest in your experience. But we do not necessarily want it to
happen quickly - because we want you to enjoy the process of
creation. In other words, if you could, in this moment, think of
whatever you want and have it instantly he manifested, you would
find yourself instantly bored. What brings life, is the Press of
life flowing through you. It's the feeling of the Energy flowing
through you. It's the process of Creation that is life.
When you see something you want and you hold your attention on it
and you give birth to a new idea - that new idea literally summons
Life Force to itself through you. That's what that feeling of
passion is. But if you give birth to an idea, and as it begins to
summon Life Force to itself through you, you begin to doubt it or
worry about it or test it... now what happens is you are no longer a
match to your own desire. So while it's doing it's best to summon
Life Force to itself, for the completion of your idea, you are
vibrationally out of sync with it now because you're including
opposite vibration within you. So even though it begins to summon,
you don't feel very good in the process because the Energy that is
flowing through you is being hindered by the contradictory Energy
that is within you. That's what negative emotion is.
Negative emotion is what you feel like when you introduce a
lower, slower vibration to a higher, faster frequency.
Once you understand what it feels like to summon Energy and what
it feels like to summon a lot of Energy and to allow the Energy to
flow, once you begin to, through your own trial and error, decipher
Energy as you summon it and as you allow it to flow - you will never
again receive, by default or by not recognizing, something that you
are not wanting.
When Negative Emotion Feels Normal
if you have negative emotion, which is your indicator that in
this moment you are not vibrationally up to speed with your Source
Energy, and if you don't realize you have the negative emotion
because, after all, as to most of you, negative emotion has begun to
feel rather normal... In other words, isn't it normal to feel a
little ornery or a little aggravated or a little overwhelmed? And
so, as you acclimate to a feeling of negative emotion, what you're
actually doing is acclimating to a lower vibration. You are actually
becoming accustomed to a vibration that's not up to speed with
clarity. It's not up to speed with wellness. It's not up to speed
with abundance. It's not up to speed with who you really are. it is
up to speed with what many are living, and it is up to speed with
what you are observing a good deal of the time - but it is not up to
speed with who you really are. But, because it feels normal to you,
your Guidance System isn't as alert and alive, and so you don't
receive the benefit of your magnificent cent Guidance System.
If we were standing in your physical shoes, we would not allow or
accept or tolerate long-standing negative emotion. Instead, we would
use negative emotion in the way you all intended. We would feel it
and know it for what it is: As an indicator that, in this moment, I
have my attention upon something that is not in vibrational harmony
with who I really am or with what I am wanting. Not forever, but in
this moment. Or for as long as I hold this belief or attitude or
attention to this lower vibration.
Imagine a room fan blowing air in your direction. It's quiet. You
can't hear it, but you know it's on because you can feel the air
blowing across your body. Now stick your pencil in the fan. It would
make quite a ruckus, Wouldn't it? It might even chop your pencil
off. Well, that pencil in the fan is what negative emotion is. When
you introduce the lower, slower vibration into the higher faster
frequency, the result is a slowing of the Energy that was there
before - and when your energy slows from it's natural Source-like
vibration, you feel crummy. That's what negative emotion is- it's
what you feel like when something that you are giving your attention
to, and, therefore, something that you are including In your
vibration, is now causing you to vibrate differently than you really
You are, in your natural state, vibrating at a very high, pure,
fast vibrational rate. But when you choose a thought that is not up
to speed with that, and you introduce or include that vibration in
your vibrational mix, the result is that it slows the vibration of
your being. Which is just fine. You have free will. You can do that
all you want. But when you slow the vibrational content of your
being, you feel the slowing. And what that slowing is is negative
emotion. That's what it feels like to you.
Why Does Illness Happen?
Just as elation is a raising of vibration, or appreciation is a
raising of vibration, or the feeling of relief is the feeling of a
raising of vibration - the feeling of negative emotion ,is the
feeling of including a lower vibration. And that is why all illness,
all things that you consider to be bad, everything that happens to
any of you that is not up to speed with what you really want - is
always accompanied by negative emotion. And because most of you have
not understood that negative emotion and positive emotion are your
guidance to let you know where your vibration is, you have learned
to acclimate to the negative emotion.
In every moment, you are offering a vibrational output just like
a radio transmitter. It's like you are a radio station, and you are
always on the air, and in every moment you are offering that output
-- the entire Universe is responding to it. The Universe recognizes
your signal and matches it constantly.
Most physical humans don't deliberately offer their signal,
because they have not decided what signal they are wanting to
transmit. Instead, most humans offer whatever signal they are
The 17 Second Process
If you are observing something wonderful, as you observe it, it
is vibrating. And as it vibrates, if you hold your attention to it
for as little as 17 seconds, you begin to vibrate as it is
vibrating. So whatever it is is reflected within your vibration. As
the Universe sees the signal that you are now transmitting, as a
result of your response to what you are now Observing, now the
Universe accepts that signal as your output. It sees it as your
point of attraction, and it matches that signal with other things
If what You are observing is something you don't want, it is
vibrating. And as you hold your attention upon it for more than 17
seconds, you begin to vibrate as it is vibrating. And then, the
Universe accepts that - your point of attraction and matches it with
other things like it. The better it gets the better it gets, or the
worse it gets the worse it gets, because the Universe is responding
to your signal. Set your own Tone and the Universe will respond to
As you are responding to the things around you rather than
Setting your own Tone, or sending your own signal, you feel not in
control of your own point of attraction, because you are offering a
signal, not on purpose, but because you have not quite yet learned,
or come to believe, that you can Set your own Tone and that the
Universe will respond to whatever Tone you are setting.
Why "No"' Means "Yes"
As You come to understand that "no" doesn't mean "no," it always
means "yes," then you begin to notice how often you're saying "no"
to something. And the thing that we want you to understand is that
it is your habit of saying "no" that is most responsible for your
impure vibration. It is what is responsible for the static in your
vibration. It is responsible for the contradiction in your
When you say, "I want a new red car," the Universe responds to
the vibration of your desire, but when you say, "But a new red car
is too expensive," the Universe responds to that vibration, too.
When the Universe is responding to two contradictory vibrations,
nothing changes for you. Nothing very bad happens, but nothing very
good happens, either, when you are as objective as most of you are.
Ten Years Without Hot Tea
So often, you say, to us, "Abraham, I want more money but I don't
know where it will come from. I would really like to have more
money. I know a lot of people that have money. I believe that money
could come to me, but it doesn't come to me. I don't understand why
it doesn't come o me. It comes to them. I know that money is a good
thing and I believe that there are ways, but why doesn't it come to
It is like wanting a nice cup of hot tea, so you turn the water
on. You put the fire on under your teapot and you turn it on - and
then, right before it boils you turn it off. And then you turn it on
again - and right before it boils you turn it off. And then you turn
it on again - and right before it boils you turn it off. And then
you say, "For ten years I've been trying to get hot water," and we
say, "Just leave it on."
You have been trained to be very objective, to weigh the pros and
the cons, the pluses and the minuses. Actually, part of that is a
good thing, because contrast is necessary for you to come to a
decision. And while it seems like a weak reason to you when you are
living something you really don't want, from your broader
Nonphysical Perspective, you would not give up this contrast for
Without knowing what is not wanted, you could not know what is
So, the key is, as human Deliberate Creators, You must find a way
that you can utilize the contrast in order to decide what is wanted,
What you're wanting to do is to sift through the data of contrast
with an intent to select from it what you are wanting.
When you peruse the contrast for the intent of choosing what you
do want, you're using contrast in the way you were born to do it.
You're using contrast in the way your Inner Being does. But when you
sift through the contrast to define what is not wanted and you hold
that resistance stance as you say, "No, I want not this," now you
have turned contrast, which would have served you well, into
resistance, which never serves you well.
Let Your Cork Float
Imagine a cork floating on a body of water, and this cork is up
there bobbing on the surface. And, for the sake of our analogy, know
that up here on the surface the high, Pure vibration. This is the
vibration of your Source. This is who you really are. Now take hold
of that cork and hold it under the water as you focus upon something
unwanted or - you doubt or as you doubt of disbelieve, or as you
beat up on yourself or someone else... Now, as this cork is under
water because of your attention to something that is not up to speed
with it, now let go of it. Take your attention from whatever has
caused the cork to come under the water. And what happens to the
cork when you let go of it? It bobs right back up to the surface.
And the reason that we want, very much, for you to hear this
important analogy is because we want you to know that that is where
your vibration would naturally be if you were not giving your
attention to something that was vibrationally different. We want you
to understand that you don't have to work hard at the higher
vibration. You don't have to work at all at the higher vibration.
You only have to no longer give your attention to those things that
hold your cork under the water.
Be Eager Little Children
In the beginning, it takes a little practice. If we were visiting
with you in the early days of your physical experience, we would
leave this part of it out, altogether, because little children are
born with floating corks. They have not yet developed the habit of
thought that holds their cork under the water. They are full of
themselves. Have you noticed? They're full of Energy. They're full
of life. They're full of eagerness. They're full of passion. They're
full of all this Source Energy. They are pure Nonphysical Inner
Being embodied in the flesh, and you say, "No. No. No. No. No. No.
No. No. No. You're too happy. You're too loud. You're too
interested. You're too eager. Stop that. Stop that! Stop that!! Stop
that!!!" And after about four or five years of hearing that, their
corks come down with yours. And then you say, "Good, we have got
them molded. We have molded them into our likeness." And we say,
"Poor little tyke. If he could just have been away from you for the
first few years, until he got his attitude developed that life is
good and that all is well, then you wouldn't have been able to get
him." In other words, if he could have just had a little experience
without your cork drowning influence...
Sometimes you come to these gatherings and we hear you say things
to your friends like, "I'm going to go learn how to float my cork"
or "I'm going to learn how to raise my vibration." And what we, very
much, want you to hear from us is - you don't have to learn how to
float your cork or raise your vibration. That is the most natural
thing you ever do. But it is helpful to learn what kinds of habits
of thought you have that are keeping your cork from floating. The
good news is, every time that happens, you have a Guidance System
that's within you that is letting you know it. That's what negative
When you feel anger or fear or frustration or blame or guilt or
any of those emotions that you would describe as negative emotions,
what that means, every single time, is that you are giving your
attention to something and therefore including its lower vibration
in your vibrational mix, causing yourself to now be vibrationally
different from your own Source. And so, that negative emotion that
you are feeling is a sort of withdrawal. It isn't really withdrawal,
because your Inner Being never withdraws from you - but sometimes
you tune your radio dial to a frequency that's different from your
sender, or Source, and you cannot make the connection.
What Is Your Wavelength?
You would not get into your car and set your dial on your radio
at 97 and expect to hear 101 FM. Would you? You wouldn't say to your
friend, "I know it's out there and I want it to come to me. I have
97 dialed on my radio, and what I want will come to it." You
wouldn't do that, would you, because you understand that in this
vibrational world that there is a transmitter and there is a
receiver, and if the receiver is going to receive what the
transmitter is sending - then the receiver has to be on the same
wavelength as the transmitter. And everything in the Universe is
exactly that same way. You have to set your vibration to match the
vibration of your desire to match the vibration of your Source - or
it cannot be. There is not enough action in the world to make any
difference if your tuner is set differently than your Source.
If you will take the time to line up your Energy, to attune your
vibration with the vibration of your desire - nothing can keep it
from coming to you. But if you don't take the time to align the
vibration of your desire and the vibration of your belief - then
there is not enough action in the world to make any difference.
You keep trying. You keep finding different words and finding
different actions and offering different processes, hoping that you
will be the one exception to the Laws of the Universe and that you
will defy this Law of Attraction - but we promise you it is not
going to happen.
That awful feeling you feel, that you would describe as
disappointment or humiliation or even anger or fear, that negative
emotion that you feel, is your indicator that this train of thought,
these words, this attitude about you is not in harmony with who you
are. Your Guidance System has been letting you know, every step
along the way, every single choice of thought, word or action that
you have made. Your glorious Guidance System has been guiding you to
let you know whether your cork is floating or whether it isn't,
whether you are in harmony with Source or whether you are not.
What Is A Belief?
A belief is just a thought you keep thinking. It's not any big
deal It's just a habit of thought. What beliefs do you hold that are
not vibrationally up to speed with who you are? How do you begin to
sort this out? How do you tell what thoughts or beliefs you hold
that are in harmony with your Source Energy? You can tell by the way
you feel which are which. When you feel elation or joy or
exhilaration or passion, that means that whatever you are giving
your attention to, you are a vibrational match to it. When you feel
fear or anger or frustration or loneliness or guilt or blame, or any
of those negative emotions, that means that, in this moment,
whatever you are giving your attention to is not vibrationally up to
speed with who you really are.
Bless your hearts, we don't know how you stand it as you move
around your physical environment trying to guide your life by the
rules that so many others are offering to you. Someone said to us,
not long ago, "Abraham, this is really scary." He said, "I've been
following a philosophy for a number of years, and the other day I
heard someone speaking very boisterous words that said that what I
had chosen as my way of life was utterly wrong and that I was
destined to hell." And he said, "I don't want to believe that that
person is right. But what if that person is right? What if the
choices that I have been making, as I've been guided by this voice
or that voice, or this voice are wrong choices? How would one ever
know which group to follow?"
How satisfying it is, and what a feeling of enormous relief it
is, to discover that, all along, you have had guidance within you
that was letting you know right here, right now, what the
vibrational content of your attention was. Not a punishing guidance
that says, "If you keep doing this wrong, you will be punished," but
just a simple, in the moment, guidance that says, "This is not in
harmony with who you are or with what you want."
It is very liberating to discover the guidance that comes forth
from within, and, in fact, it is essential to learning to mold
Energy, because you have to find some standard of measurement. "If
you've got negative emotion and you don't know what it means and you
don't release it, don't worry, it will get bigger. And if you still
don't recognize it, so by Law of Attraction, you continue to hold it
to you, don't worry, it will get bigger..." And so, if you have
things that are manifesting in a way that does not please you - all
it means is that you have a habit of vibration that somehow matches
The Creative Process
The Creative Process has two parts to it: There is my finding of
the desire, and then there is my aligning my vibration so that it's
up to speed with the desire. Now, it really isn't two steps. It's
only one step that you keep doing in two different ways. Here's what
we mean by this: Whatever you're giving your attention to is already
vibrating. And so, by your attention to it, you now include that
vibration within you. So let's say that you get into this very good
space. You've been meditating or you've been walking in the woods or
you've been listening to lovely music or you've been having a
wonderful exchange with someone, and you are tuned in, tapped in,
turned on. You're feeling great. And in that attitude or mood, or
vibrational offering, you have an idea for something, and you launch
this idea. You, from this place of feeling very good, you connect
with your Source Energy, and you launch an idea. A desire is born
within you. It is conceived. It is born. It is done. But then,
tomorrow, when you wake up, you are not walking in those woods.
You're not listening to that music. You're not meditating. You're
not in that good place. And so, now, from your now grumpy mood, you
go back and think about the idea that you launched, but now your
vibration does not match the vibration of your desire. You are a
being who sometimes focuses on things that are not a vibrational
match to your desire --and sometimes you focus on things that are
not a vibrational match to your desire -- and how fast it comes to
you has to do with how often you do which.
You hear people described as "this is an up person" or "this is a
grumpy person" or "this is a down person" or "this is a high person"
or "this is a happy person" or "this is a somber person." And we
ask, how would you define yourself'? Are you optimistic, or
pessimistic? Are you usually happy? Are you usually unhappy? And
what most of you would say is, "Well, I'm a mixed bag. On this
subject I'm a happy person and on this subject... On the subject of
hiking in the woods I'm a happy person. On the subject of going to
work I'm not as happy. On the subject of my best friend or lover I'm
an ecstatic person. On the subject of my mother I'm an ornery
Your Vibrational Habits
Most of you have different vibrational habits that you have
developed over time, because most of you have developed your
vibrational habits in response to vibrations that were offered. The
vibrational habits that most of you have are nothing more than
knee-jerk responses... In other words, if somebody comes up to you -
someone that you know, someone that you love, someone that you want
to love you - and this person is critical, in this moment, or
disrespectful, and sort of snaps at you or bites your head off - not
literally, you understand - you would probably have a negative
response to that person because they have established their
Vibrational Tone so strongly that they would dominate the situation.
So you say, "Gee, Abraham, I mean to offer a pure vibration. That
really is who I am. And I do a pretty good job of it, but there are
just these things that happen that when they happen they evoke from
me something different than who I really am." And we say, and that
is precisely what we want to help you with. We want to help you get
good at recognizing who you really are and radiating that into your
physical environment. It's called, Setting your own Tone.
Be The Positive lnfluencer
We want you to be the influencer of the Pure Positive Energy
rather than the knee-jerk responder to anything that comes along. As
long as the vibration that you offer is coming because of the way
you're responding to different things, now you can't watch
television, you can't go out to dinner, you can't drive in traffic,
you can't be with others... In other words, the only way you could
truly be happy is just to hole up, alone, where there would be no
Well, there is another way. You could get big and strong and get
lots of bombs and power, and you could make them all behave. But
neither one of those seem like very viable options. Do they? You
cannot really practically hole up, and you can't get others to
behave in a way that keeps you vibrating in harmony with who you
are. And so, the way we see it, there is really only one option: Get
so good at offering your Tone, that you dominate the vibration
everywhere you go - so that all factors have to acclimate to your
Pure Positive Energy. And that, friends, is what Deliberate Creating
is: Being god at radiating that which you truly are.
Imagine Yourself As A Magnet
Imagine a magnet. One of those powerful "U" shaped magnets ...
and for the sake of our analogy, we will say that this magnet has
set its Tone. Now, imagine a nail lying on the table pretty close to
the magnet, and as the magnet gets close to the nail, what's going
to happen? That nail is going to go right to the magnet, because the
nail is caught up in the influence of the magnet's Tone. Boom! "The
devil made me do it," you say. "I don't know why I behave that way.
I'm always am like that when I'm with that person." But now, imagine
that you, too are a magnet, that has set its Tone, and you come into
the vibrational sphere of the other. Have you ever taken two magnets
and tried to push them together in that way? What happens? They push
apart. As you have set your Tone, as you are offering your vibration
- you will not be susceptible to other vibrations that are different
from that which you are about.
Purpose of Manifestation
We want for you to come to appreciate the manifestation - it
unfolds, because the manifestation is here for you, you
Energy-flowing beings, you creators, you flowers of the energy that
creates worlds.. The manifestation is here to help You get better
and better and better at understanding how you are flowing the
Physical beings mostly don't understand that. You say things,
when you come to these gatherings, such as, "I'm willing to take my
time and spend my money and practice the processes so that I can
affect this physical manifestation. I'm willing to do this - so that
I can get that." And that's fine. We want you to have all that you
want. We want every physical manifestation that you can imagine to
flow comfortably and easily and magnificently into your experience.
We want those physical things for you - but we want you to
understand that the only reason the physical stuff exists is to help
you in the satisfaction of flowing the Energy.
Do It For the Fun Of It
Imagine you are going on a trip, and you know where you're going.
You're going to go to seven or eight cities, and you're going to be
here and here and here, and you're going to do all these wonderful
things - and then you're going to come back home. If you were
approaching that vacation in the way most of you approach your
day-to-day experience, you'd say, Well, since home is my final
destination, and because you know why you go. You don't go to get
where you're going. You go for the fun along the way. You go for the
exposure to the new experiences. You go for the interaction with new
people. You go for the new ideas. You go because you think it will
make you feel better. You go because you have learned, through past
exposure to new experiences, that it will bring something new to you
and through you. And that is the way we would like you to feel about
every one of these creations that you are embarking upon now. Once
you have a conscious success relative to any aspect of your
experience, the rest comes very easily.
You'll Never Get It Done
Understand, first of all, that you will never get it done. You
are not ever going to get it done. And from your Nonphysical
Perspective, that's good news, not bad news, because from your
Nonphysical Perspective, you understand what it's like to feel a
desire born - ah, that feeling of desire in your belly - oh, it is
such a glorious feeling, because that desire is what summons Life
That excited feeling of desire is what it feels like when Life
Force is flowing through you. That feeling of adventure and passion
is what it feels like when Life Force flows through you - but it
takes a desire to summon that Life Force.
It is fair to say that it is the contrast that you think you
don't like, that is responsible for the desire to be born that you
do like. The Contrast is necessary for the desire to be born.
Contrast is what puts the eternalness in eternity, because contrast
sparks the new desire, and the desire summons the Life Force.
Everything that you want, you want for only one reason: You want
it because you through you on the way to the fulfillment of one of
So, it is our desire, if it is yours, to assist you in
understanding where your vibration is relative to the things that
you want. We want to give you some easy, user-friendly, processes
that help you to be more a vibrational match to who you really are.
This is not a difficult thing - and once you have conscious success
relative to any aspect of your experience, the rest of it comes very
The thing that we most want you to remember, from all that we
have offered, so far, is: You are vibrational creatures and
everything is responding to your vibration - and the way you know
what the vibration is that you are offering is by the way you feel.
The way you feel is the indicator of your vibration.
And so, it would be a very good thing to say, "The Universe
responds to my mood. Not to my words. Not to my list that I write
down. The Universe responds to how I feel. The Universe responds to
the essence of me." Have you ever known someone who had a sort of
fake happy smile and they were saying happy words, but you could
just tell that they were not where their words were? Well, the
Universe can tell, too. And the Universe is not denying their words
because it's trying to teach them a lesson. By Law of Attraction,
the Universe cannot yield to you anything that's different from what
you are vibrating anymore than you can set your dial on 97 and hear
101 FM on your radio. In other words, you have to he a vibrational
match to what you want in order for it to come.
We want, very much, for you to understand that not only do you
have the creative control to only walk toward that which is in
harmony - but you can literally lay out a future path that will
please you in every way. For you are Creators.
In the same way that a Creator goes into his workshop, you have
come forth into this physical experience, with all of the materials
available to create anything that will please you - and with the
skill to create masterpieces that will not only satisfy you in your
now, but will satisfy those who World that which you are about.
You Are Unthreatened God-based Beings
You are powerful beings. You are God-based beings. The Energy
that creates worlds flows to you and through you. You do not have to
be tentative or guarded or afraid of what is out there. There is a
lot out there, but none of it holds any threat to you once you
understand what it feels like when you, in any moment, are in
vibrational harmony with your Source Energy.
We have enjoyed this interaction immensely. It is delicious to
come together with our physical counterparts who are brave, from
your physical perspective, and utterly eager and willing from your
Nonphysical Perspective, to come forth and dance this dance of life.
Make More Decisions
Be easy about all of this. Make more decisions in every day and
trust that the Universe will provide evidence of your decision.
Don't struggle with your vibrational offering. just be aware of the
manifestations that reflect it back to you. And if the manifestation
isn't the way you want it to be, then adjust the vibration and watch
for the manifestation to change, too. Let the manifestation be your
signal of what your vibration is.
Be More Playful
Offer your vibration as purely as you can. Offer it as fully as
you can. Bring more humor into your experience. Be more playful
about this. Watch the dogs and cats. Watch the beasts. And most of
all watch your children. Watch these little ones who come forth
still remembering how much fun it is all supposed to be - and then
do your best to follow their lead.
You Can't Get It Wrong
We watch you in every moment of your experience. We adore you for
that which you are and for that which you are becoming. We
acknowledge there is no wrongdoing that you can do. You cannot get
off the track. You cannot deviate from your plan. You cannot fail.
You cannot embarrass yourself, and you cannot bring any disfavor
from your Nonphysical God or Source upon yourself. The only agony
that you can ever experience is, here in this physical realm, when
you include in your observation a vibration that is not up to speed
with who you really are.
Follow Your Bliss
So go forth from this seminar with a new-found intention that you
are going to let your guiding intention to be to feel good, because
if you will follow your bliss - ah, no better words have ever been
spoken ... A teacher some time ago coined it in the most magnificent
expression that we have heard, to this date, when he said, "Follow
your bliss." And while our expression is not as poetic, it means the
same thing when we say, "Float your cork." Your cork naturally
floats. You don't have to float it. So better it would be if we were
to say let your cork float.
Follow your bliss and let your cork float, and your Guidance
System will always be alive - and you will always be expanding just
in the way you, at every level of your being, have intended to be.
There is great love here for you. We are complete.
