We want you to see yourself and your world (gently) through our eyes. We want you to see the natural abundance that is available to you.And we want you to eagerly identify what aspects of that abundance you would like to participate in, understanding that there is no possible way that you could ever deprive any other of anything because they have their own individual path to abundance carved out for them.
Abundance of wellness, abundance of Energy, abundance of enthusiasm, abundance of joy, abundance of all that is desired flows to you at all times -- unless it is artificially disrupted or prevented.
What makes allowing abundance difficult? Awareness of not enough abundance. You can't have it both ways. You cannot focus upon the absence of money and let money in. It cannot be. You have to start finding moments that feel like you think you want to feel- and savoring them.
Whenever you are thinking about dollars and feeling good you are attracting them unto you. Whenever you are thinking about dollars and feeling bad you are pushing dollars away from you.
In the same way that air flows easily and always to all physical beings, unless it is artificially disrupted or prevented, abundance flows to all.
Allowing abundance is really a very simple thing. Since it flows to me at all times -- all I have to do is let it in.
The prevention or disruption of this dynamic, eternally offered Stream of Well-Being, can be humanly prevented or artificially disrupted in only one way.
By choosing thoughts of the absence of love, or Well-being, or abundance.
By choosing thoughts of lack.
By the powerful Law of Attraction, it is not possible to think of abundance and disallow it at the same time. By the powerful Law of Attraction, it is not possible to notice the lack of abundance and allow it at the same time.
If there is not as much money in your experience as you want, it means one thing only: The balance of your thought regarding the subject of money is tipping more to the lack of it than to the having of it. You have only to deliberately and consciously offer more thought towards money than towards the lack of it.
Your second million will come much faster than your first, because as you get comfortable with the feeling of the first, the second is natural. And the third and fourth.
Esther heard a very wealthy man, Ted Turner, saying, "The world is awash in money." And he knew it as he spoke it. It is his experience, everywhere he turns. He gave a billion dollars to the United Nations. Money is flowing to him and through him, more than he could ever, in this lifetime and a hundred others, figure out what to do with on a personal basis.
"The world is awash in money!" And as Esther heard him say that, she knew he knew that. And she thought, "I know that, too. He knows it so clearly, that now I know it." It was something about the intensity with which he spoke it, that, in that moment, Esther knew it. And then, for the next month, she must have said that to Jerry 5,000 times. "The world is awash in money." It was a titillating thought to her, because she, like you, had seen where so many people had pinched themselves off from Well-being, that she'd come to believe that the world was not awash in money. She had come to believe that only a few had it, and they had it stashed back there somewhere where others could not get it. She thought that there was a lopsided thing...
The world is awash in money! Do you hear what that means? It is awash in money. It is flowing for everyone. It is like Niagara Falls. And most of you are showing up with your teaspoons.
There is no shortage of anything.
Those who believe there is shortage, hold themselves over in this place where they disallow the Energy from flowing to them. And so, in their resistance, they have it not. And then they say, "I am proof that there is shortage. And that man over there that is awash in money is the reason I don't have any." He has nothing to do with your shortage. He is evidence that there is an abundance.
Once the manifestations start coming in response, it gets easier and easier and easier.
Q: The thing was, my vision was really large or is really large, and complex. And it requires a lot of time, a lot of bringing people together, a lot of putting systems in place.
Abe: Now, we're not hearing a whole lot of pleasure from you. This feels arduous. In other words, this feels like "my long, uphill struggle on the way to my success."
Q: Well, the thing is I don't have those things in place, and the process of putting them in place is very energetic....
Abe: Well, maybe you're taking action too soon. Somebody's convinced you that even though your energy may not be lined up the way you want it, that if you'll just jump into action then other things will fall into place. And it's really a backwards approach to this because if you take the time to take the pleasure from the vision, then the Universe will line up the action and then it is effortless. You see, it just sort of keeps unfolding for you. It's like the next logical step–-oh, there it is; oh, there it is.
Q: The pressure was, and I learned it from your tapes- that I wanted it soon.
Q: Because I felt like I had to have it or something like that?
Q: Originally I think it was I felt incomplete without it.
Abe: Yeah, and you can't get there from there!
Q: (Agreeing:) You can't.
Abe: In other words, when you want something because you don't have it...
Abe: Do you hear what you're saying? "I want this thing that I do not have. I want this thing that I do not have."
Q: Instead of for the pure joy of it.
Abe: "I want this thing that I do not have." And when you say, "I want this thing. I want this thing. I want this thing because this thing is fun to think about. I want this thing because it gives me pleasure to think about it. I want this thing for the pleasure I can milk from it." We want you to reach the place where you say, "I want this thing but I don't want it to come too soon because I like using it as the focal point that keeps summoning things through me."
Q: I started saying that today, that's great.
Abe: "Because from the moment I started wanting this, good things started flowing. It gave me something to focus upon. It gave me a reason for life force to flow through me. It gave the Universe a reason to rendezvous me with lots of other things." In other words, "Wanting this thing is the very best thing I've ever done for myself. I'm not sure I ever want it to come to an end." And we say don't worry, it won't. (Laughter.) There will always be something more and something more. And that is the strongest point that we're wanting-–we have never before been in a group of such collective consciousness where there is such powerful intent all congealed in one focused place. We mean that. In other words, you are powerful wanters here. And the thing that we most want you to hear is that you will always be in the place of unfulfilled desire, get used to it. You will always be in the place of unfulfilled desire.
And so what you're wanting to do is say, "How much pleasure can I get from this unfulfilled desire and do I have another unfulfilled desire lined up before this one manifests because it is the unfulfilled desire that keeps summoning life through me." We would feel sorry for any of you who said, "Everything that I've ever wanted has already manifested," and we would say then your lights must be out.
It is the not-fulfillment that keeps summoning the life through you, and you know that so clearly that you commit yourself to lifetime after lifetime after lifetime because it is such a delicious journey.
Q: I have that, but what happens to me is that what I'm inspired by is large...
Q: ...it takes time....
Abe: No, it doesn't. Big manifestations come more quickly than little manifestations because there's more energy involved. It is much easier to manifest a castle than it is a button, unless you really, really, really need that button.
What about creating a very obvious positive current of financial abundance?
What about getting so good at visualizing that the money flows through you easily?
What about expending money?
Giving more people work?
Giving more people opportunity?
The more you spend, the more people benefit, and the more people get in on the game and dovetail with you. Your role is to utilize the Energy.
That's why you exist. You are an Energy-flowing being, a focuser, a perceiver.
You are a Creator. There is not anything worse in all of the Universe to do than to come forth into the environment of great contrast where desire is born easily and not allow Energy to flow to your desire. That is a true squandering of life.
So as you are moving through your day and you notice that you have more desire or need for money than you actually have money and a big bill has come so you have this conflicting feeling where you want to spend it for this but you should spend it for this and even if you do pay it where it belongs there is not enough to really go around in the way you are wanting to. And in this frustrating moment of weighing the pros and cons of your experience, you fire off a rocket of desire big time.
You've asked in a very powerful way but the answer, even though its given, is not received because you are more aware of not having enough money then you are of having enough money. In your anxiety you are not in the receiving mode, in your anger or blame or guilt you are not in the receiving mode. In your awareness of not enough money you are not in the receiving mode for enough money so more money cannot come, not right now, nothing can change.
Now, you've asked, Source Energy hears you clearly, adores you fully, understands your worthiness entirely, and answers swiftly. So the answer is not just on the way, it is given. In other words, everything is lined up; the money SHOULD be there NOW. Why isn't it! Because you're ornery.
You're worried, you're frustrated. You've got your receiver set to a whole different channel. And so even though the circumstances are lined up, everything is there for you, you're zigging while your stuff is zagging, and you say "nobody ever answers my request." And we say oh yes, your request is fully answered but you have just been confused about step 1- asking and step 3- allowing.
So the key is, once you become consciously aware that you want something different than what is, you have to through the power of your mind practice until you achieve a different vibration about that subject.
In the morning when you wake up, none of you stand out on your porch frantically breathing in because you are afraid that later in the day there will be a scarcity of air. You breathe in and you breathe out and think nothing of it. What we want to get you to understand is that it is the same thing with dollars (or anything else), there is no need to go out and hold your breath in an attempt to hold on to the air in case there is a later lack. You are all MUCH closer to a financial fortune right now than you are even willing to dream about for fear that you will be disappointed if it does not come.
People, all the time, are saying to us, "Abraham, I want to win the lottery!" Well, we know why they want to win the lottery. That is logical. We want you to win the lottery! We would like you to allow the abundance that is natural to you to flow to you. We know that money is synonymous with freedom and that, the more freedom you feel, the more your valve is open and the more of it you spread around to others, you see.
But there's not one in a million of you who has opened enough outlets for that money to flow. You say, "I want ten kajillion dollars to come to me! And we say, "What would you do with it?" And you can only tell us what you would do with a few thousand. "Oh, I'd get out of debt," you say limply. "I'd buy a new car," you say limply.
We say, "You're asking for millions and you're [only] spewing ten thousand to the borders of the Universe." In other words, there's a tremendous imbalance. You've got to blast those Energy Dollars out there. "I'd do this. I'd do this. I'd do this. I'd do THIS. I'd do THIS. I'd do THIS. I'D DO THIS!" And, in the identifying of what you would do, you open valves. You create Energy vortexes. You create a funneling sensation that literally sucks, from the boundaries of the Universe, circumstances and events that will satisfy your desire.
This is what creation is!
We would far rather you selfishly intend for something to happen to you like winning the lottery than that you meddle in the lives of humanity by wishing peace on those who don't want it.
In other words, you get to choose whatever it is you are wanting and you get to achieve vibrational harmony with it, and when you do that the Universe will deliver it to you. In fact, that's your only work. Your only work is to line up the energy within you. Now peace on earth, that is a sort of meddling, stepping on the creative toes of a lot of people. In other words, that's going beyond the boundaries of lining up the energy within you.
When I am focused upon Well-being there can be no disruption or prevention (of natural Abundance). When I am focused upon joy, or love, or money or vitality, it can not be prevented.The prevention or disruption of this dynamic, eternally offered Stream of Well-Being, can be humanly prevented or artificially disrupted in only one way.By choosing thoughts of the absence of love, or Well-being, or abundance.By choosing thoughts of lack.
You have to feel appreciation for where you stand in order for more that will please you to be able to get in.
How can I make the best of this economy?
"You are having glorious economic times and there is not a reason for it to be otherwise -- for you as individuals, or for you collectively.
But don't let what they are doing collectively affect you individually, it need not.
Begin making statements that always keep you in the receiving mode, like: I'm not affected by what's happening outside of me
I'm only affected by the alignment of energy between my desires
I'm actually benefitting by what's taking place here because I'm giving more thought to what I'm really wanting
I'm fine tuning my desires in a more powerful way
I'm pulling more energy through me than I ever have before ... and I'm more deliberately paying attention to when I'm in the receiving mode than when I am not
I'm thriving during these economic times as I've done before
I anticipate that I will thrive even more during these economic times
These are boom times for me
This has really been clarifying times for me
I am summoning more energy than I ever have before
I'm clearer about what I'm knowing
I'm in a much better place this time than at any other time
I have a strong economic back drop or platform that I am launching from
All is really well here. Law of attraction will sort everything out and we are all doing extremely well.
And, when you hear others that are expressing otherwise, sometimes it is to your advantage to stop just for a brief moment and ask, "What is their reason for perpetuating this?"
And sometimes, in many cases the answer will be, and it will be accurate when it comes forth, "They just don't know any better." In other words they haven't thought it through, it's what every body is doing.
But sometimes the answer will be, "It is to their economic advantage to do so."
And as you begin to acknowledge how many people are using this to their economic advantage you won't worry about the economy any more.
