Abraham-Hicks Seminars in
Asheville, Washington, Philadelphia and Stamford,
5-29 - 6-14-2009
are my notes from the last 6 workshops given by Abraham. I really want
to stress that Abraham IS taking "thought beyond where thought has been
before". The workshops are going WAY out on the leading edge – in my
opinion giving us the message in a much more succinct and
straightforward way than ever before. In fact, what I really want to
get across before I even start my notes is that (are you listening?)
it really IS SIMPLE! It's SIMPLE, people! If it's not EASY that's only
because we are putting resistance in our own paths!
The good news? ALL
you have to do is feel better.
Nothing more is
required. No figuring out, no analyzing, no earning or bettering
yourself or becoming worthy.
Just. Feel. Better.
And yes, you DO
know how to do that! It's the most basic and elemental knowledge you
came in with, and you have not lost the ability to feel better. As long
as you have the ability to form a thought, you have the ability to feel
better. So just think and feel think and feel. NOT "figure out" and
feel. Just think and feel. Think a thought that feels a LITTLE BIT
BETTER, and you are pointed toward the VORTEX OF CREATION! And that is
where everything you want resides. You created it out of thought. You
created yourself out of thought. Now line those up, and voila !
ALL of what I'm
going to write here could be summed up by:
GET IN THE VORTEX.
So what is the
vortex? It's the vibrational "place" (or the vibrational "reality")
where all that you have created through your experience with contrast,
and your subsequent asking, is. It's all there. Inside the vortex.
The vortex is where there is:
It's ALL INSIDE!
You can feel
"contentment" inside the vortex as well.. but Abraham says "You didn't
come in for contentment". You came for the joy of the journey – the joy
of the expansion – the joy of the movement! Contentment is only meant
to be a temporary resting place between bouts of expansion.
So okay, here are
my notes. Where I put quotation marks around a sentence or phrase,
that's a direct quote from Abraham. All the rest is my paraphrasing of
These notes were
taken in Asheville, Washington DC, Philadelphia, and Stamford over the
past several weeks, and as I've already mentioned, there was a definite
impression of Abraham having started to deliver their message in a more
direct way. It's not that they are impatient with us – they never would
be – but I think we "askers" have become READY to hear things a bit more
"harshly" (for lack of better word) if you will.. We're ready to give up
the old story and just get in the vortex already! Or at least to get on
our paths TOWARD the vortex and leave the rest in the dust.
While I was on the
hot seat in Philly, Abraham said that the "in the Vortex crowd" differs
so sharply from the "out of the Vortex crowd" and that the difference is
becoming more and more poignant as we become more aligned.
It is my desire to
bring this Forum INTO THE VORTEX, or at least, to keep it pointed
consistently TOWARD the Vortex! I think our greatest value for people
who visit this site is to hold that vision and to keep facing that
direction. I know that Scott, Marc, and David support me in my desire
to keep this forum FOCUSED (and Abraham talked a lot about focus in the
past few workshops as well) on what we DO WANT, and away from what we do
NOT WANT. In fact, focus is so important to pointing toward and
remaining in the vortex that you'll be seeing me write more and more
about that on the forum in many contexts.
Abraham says that
EVERYTHING we want, we want because we believe that in the having of it
we will FEEL BETTER. Now, we really have to get it – finally – that we
have had it backwards! FEEL BETTER NOW, and THEN watch the "everything"
flow in. Feeling better is everything.
Abraham repeated many times over the past few weeks:
"YOU ARE THE
CREATOR AND YOU ARE THE CREATION"
Please read that
several times. It is incredibly profound and enlightening! Knowing
that YOU are the creator of YOU puts all of your power right back where
it always rightfully belonged. In YOU. YOU have the power and the
responsibility to forge your life the way YOU desire it to be. There
are no excuses and there is no turning back. And by the same token,
there are no mistakes! Everything you have done, everywhere you have
been, physically and emotionally, has been GOOD! Where you are is where
you are. And wherever that is in relation to the vortex, you can start
right NOW to move in the direction of the vortex. And as you
move toward it, miracles will happen. The Universe will join you in
rejoicing in your power and in your creations.
Okay, after than
long-winded intro, here is part ONE of my notes:
"You are the creator of
YOU" You are God. You are the creator AND the creation.
trained that making a decision entails a lot of "figuring out", when
actually we'd be better served by allowing INSPIRATION. Look for the
path of least resistance in the moment. As your life gets bigger, you
have much to sort out and decide. So you have to be selfish in order to
keep yourself in control and balance. Allow yourself to be CALLED by
your own desires and escrow, and let yourself off the hook of trying to
please others. When you allow your own guidance to kick in, and you
remove all the other noise, your inspiration will appear and decision
"making" will be easy.
from outside the vortex is hard on you. Get into the vortex using ANY
EXCUSE and then look at the choices. Chances are that from inside the
vortex your choice will be simple, and also that the Universe can then
show you OTHER choices and alternatives that were not visible to you
from your resistant (outside the vortex) state.
We try to apply
judgment when none is necessary. Are the stairs "better" than the
elevator, or vice versa. Clearly, sometimes one is "better" and
sometimes the other is "better". It is all about what is the path of
least resistance FOR YOU in that particular moment! We could all sit and
write "pros and cons of elevators" but our lists would only be relevant
in a particular set of circumstances and from a particular vibration! We
have to stop figuring stuff out, and just ALLOW our guidance to WORK for
us in the moment! GET IN THE VORTEX, and then you'll know (be inspired)
whether to take the stairs or ride the elevator.
"GET IN THE
VORTEX. THEN DO WHATEVER YOU STILL HAVE TIME FOR"
is usually an out-of-the-vortex word"
RESPONSIBILITY IS TO YOUR OWN VORTEX"
Woman on hotseat
feels "powerless to help her mother" who is dying.
that her feeling of powerlessness comes from her faulty presumption that
"power" would mean being able to make her mother suffer less. When
truly, her power lies in her ability to feel better REGARDLESS. Abraham
repeated that this woman's responsibility is only to her own alignment.
When you stop
feeling guilty, possible actions begin to occur to you.
"people who take you out"?
Well.. just get
back in and then look at them from inside. You perspective will change
and as your vibration raises you'll have fewer and fewer dealings with
the those "clamoring out-of-the-vortexers".
Q: Can I achieve
a certain income by the end of the year?
are fine as long as they don't stir up doubt. What you want has already
been given. Now get in the vortex"
"THE SOLUTION IS
INSIDE THE VORTEX"
Don't try to get
into the vortex by solving all your problems or achieving your "goals"
from outside the vortex! Instead, get in using "any excuse".
1. Start by
stating your "out of the vortex" now circumstance
2. Write your
ultimate desire (opposite of #1) in the center of the wheel.
3. Start making
statements that you ALREADY BELIEVE that MATCH the statement in #2.
saying now that the Focus Wheel is their favorite process for two
1. It encourages
that all-important FOCUS
2. It mimics the
VORTEX of Creation
"WHEN YOU ARE IN
THE VORTEX YOU BECOME A COOPERATIVE COMPONENT IN YOUR CREATION"
And.. when you
get into the vortex you meet up with all the other cooperative
components that have been assembled by Source in response to your
asking! In fact, Source answered immediately! (AAIIG) and the only thing
"missing" for your manifestation of your desire, was YOU! When you get
into the Vortex, then ALL cooperative components are present, and that's
when it all comes together and "manifests".
So… are you
convinced yet? It's all happenin' IN THE VORTEX!! Get on in there!
I really want to
repeat this again.
It's NOT that
you have to figure stuff out in order to get into the vortex. Rather,
you will see it figured out INSIDE. So get in!
In Asheville, a
hotseater asked about mail pattern baldness. Abraham answered that
there is NOTHING we can't accomplish as long as we are IN the vortex.
Yes, including becoming taller, stronger, having more hair, or
whatever. But as long as we are noticing the lack of these things, or
the "problems" we experience not having them, then we are not in the

complaining about "what is" is always done outside the vortex.

off the issue and just get into the vortex".
management and being overwhelmed:
"Don't hit the
ground running with action". Do segment intending first. Expect each
segment to be successful. When you are in the vortex, things don't feel
overwhelming and choices among the many things to do feel inspired. So
take time to get into the vortex before taking action. Focus on what is
working. Make lists of things that have worked out beautifully in the

thing before I close this "Part one" of these notes:
says that they want us to LOVE the CONTRAST.
does NOT MEAN "looking at something unwanted and liking it"! Loving the
contrast just means appreciating that it gave us the possibility to make
a choice, a preference. It means appreciating that without the contrast
we would not EXPAND into new and WANTED territory! Loving the contrast
means that you can always create what you want. Contrast will only
bother you if you doubt this.
Focus! Discern the
contrast, make a decision and now FOCUS on what you have decided you
want now! That's in your vortex now (thanks Source), so in you go!
I'll try to move
on to part two of these notes later today.
that even though I'm using a lot of words here, and Abraham uses a lot
of words, they also say that their seminars could really really be so
much shorter if we could really hear them saying "Just get in the
(reminder - where I use quotation marks, I am quoting Abraham directly
and accurately. Everything else is my paraphrasing of their message)
FOCUS is what it's ALL ABOUT!
"Our power to focus is our creative power"
By using FOCUS we "activate a vibration". By CHOOSING what to focus on,
we DECIDE what vibration we want to be active within us, and thus what
Law of Attraction will bring us things that match. LOA is responding -
always - to our vibration. We can DELIBERATELY create, by deliberately
Where there is no contrast, there is no creation.
Think of a photograph or painting. No contrast - nothing to focus on -
and well... just nothing.
Contrast allows us to FOCUS, and to CHOOSE our point of attraction
We came into this physical time-space reality in order to experience the
process of creating. The actual manifestations of our creation was
secondary to the PROCESS. The artist doesn't paint because a gallery or
someone's wall NEEDS another painting. He creates because the process
calls him! He paints because creation is what LIFE is all about. Loving
the process in this manner applies to ALL activities in life, and our
best creations are those we form out of passionate desire.
FOCUS is what makes the creation unique! If a musician has no focus he
produces a cacophony. In the same way, if the forum has no focus it
produces a cacophony of posts, and if you don't focus the dish soap
spritzer it will land on the stove instead of the sink (ya, this
happened to me this morning)...
FOCUS is what we deliberate, leading edge creators do that sets us apart
from those creating their lives by "default"! The default creators do
so simply by reacting to circumstances created by others - or by
observing "what is". Being a deliberate creator is being a deliberate
FOCUSER of thought.
In order to choose what to focus on, there must be contrast (variety).
Once you have USED the contrast to make your choice, you must FOCUS
consistently on what you have chosen as your "do want", and as that
focus makes you feel better and better, you move closer and closer into
vibrational alignment with it...
Your negative emotion means you are focusing on the part of the
contrast that formed your preference!
It's your GUIDANCE telling you to choose a different thought.. or.. to
FOCUS on something that feels better. Focus is your way into the
