Meditate on Freedom

I invite you to spend this week in a meditation process that vibrates freedom. Want to join me? (You can do this whenever you happen to find this page.)

If you're not sure how to begin, click here for a meditation process on freedom. (When you click you will find insights on the nature of freedom that came to me back in 2005.  I recommend reading that article slowly as a meditation.)

Here are some other ways to jump in:

  • Contemplate freedom.
  • Ponder its meaning to you.
  • Sit in formal meditation with freedom as your mantra or point of focus.
  • Or simply hold it in your day to day activities as a question.
    • "What is freedom?"
    • "How am I free right now?"
  • Sing freedom songs.
  • Consider your personal freedom.
  • Consider societal freedom.
  • Encourage other people's freedom.
  • Appreciate freedom and get Law of Attraction humming on the subject of your sweet freedom.
  • Exercise your freedom.
  • Feel the empowerment that is freedom.
  • Feel the joy that is freedom.

Every day this week, spend some time in the vibration of freedom.  Feel its energy signature.

Let me know how it's going for you by leaving comments below as you go.  Can you feel your resonance with inner freedom strengthening?

Abraham-Hicks Study Group: The Vortex – Appreciating the Contrast – Part 2

Appreciating the contrast – That's where we left off.

Let's pick it up right there. 

I invite you to take a look at The Vortex, page 4, paragraphs 3 & 4.

Abraham is telling us that contrast is really variety.  So there we are.  We look around and we see things that are wanted and things that are unwanted.  Usually, the next thing we do is get focused on eliminating the unwanted thing.  Do you see that that comes form a place of disempowerment?  Now, we can start to see that same unwanted thing as merely a choice that we don't take. And then we can get going on the joyful focus on (and creation of) what is wanted.

When we see the contrast as variety, and when we understand that we choose with our attention, we start to step more fully into freedom.

"…all choices are made by giving attention to something." Page 4 The Vortex

That means that every time we pay attention to something unwanted, we are choosing it.

Well, if you didn't understand about Law of Attraction, that might seem like an outrageous statement.  But when you know that your thoughts are always attracting more thoughts that are like it, and when you understand that thoughts come together to form lived realities, it all starts to make sense.

So let's put this together with the last focus.

  • We came in with the intention to enjoy every moment.
  • When we lose touch with that enjoyment, it is a sign that we have forgotten who we are.  (And some of you have acknowledged that by simply observing that, you are able to tap back into an awareness of your innate empowerment and freedom – Thank you for your comments).

Now we are going one step further.  Now we see that your power is in your ability to deliberately place your attention.  This is how you make your choices.  It is elegantly simple. And not only that, but:

  • You are the only one who can do it (deliberately place your attention). 
  • It costs nothing to do it (to choose your focus). 
  • It can completely transform your life (deliberately placing your attention).

Negative Emotion

So, picking up from last time, when you find yourself upset about something, resistant, negatively focused, call it whatever you like, basically, when you are experiencing negative emotion in reaction to a person, a situation, a condition, now you realize that you are feeling powerless.  That's what feels so bad. Feeling powerless feels bad because it is not who you are.  You feel as though this troublesome person or thing or situation has more power in the unfolding of your life than you do.

Positive Emotion

Now, with this clear revelation, we're getting a big clue about where your power actually resides.  It is in the simple ability to choose your focus.  To deliberately place your attention. And when your (human) attention is in harmony with the attention of your Inner Being, the result is a feeling of positive emotion. (That is your emotional guidance system.)

Rooted in the Infinite by Rebbie StraubingIn an earlier post I told you that I would occasionally point out where all this talk about The Vortex dovetails with The Yoga of Alignment (YOFA). If you are working with Rooted in the Infinite, you'll easily see that this deliberate placing of attention is a function of the Z-axis.  You may find places in Rooted… where I talk about ping-pong balls, movie projectors, and a cascade of neutralization.  These are all ways of picturing what's going on invisibly as you deliberately select your focus.

Try This

Let's take our last experiment a little further.  When you've got something going on that you do not want, first watch your reaction.  Remember that it's telling you very clearly whether you are looking at the situation from a perspective that is in harmony with your Inner Being or not.

If there is upset with someone, or something, or some group of people, or some condition, look at how you can, right in that moment, change your focus.

This is the beginning of one of the most powerful realizations. Here, our eyes become open to the knowing that can completely transform our lives. This is the shocking realization that it is not the person or the situation that is the real cause of our upset.  And this is good news because if they were really the cause of our problems, we would really be powerless (because we cannot control them).

And  now we find out that it is our own choice of where we put our attention that is the cause of our emotional state. And now we are free because that is the only thing we can control. When you get this, angels sing, flowers bloom, rainbows fill the sky.  It's quite a moment.

Until the next…

With Love,
Rebbie

Byron Katie: Free Teleseminar

 

   CLICK HERE FOR FREE TELESEMINAR

 The Work of Byron Katie is simple and pure and it gives you the extraordinary opportunity to look into your negative stuff and not get stuck there.  Not only not get stuck there, get free.

I'm in NY.

I can get to China by going east or by going west.  From my starting place they look like they will take me in opposite directions.  And yet, they both get me where I'm going.

That's how I feel sometimes when I look at these 2 teachings that have so filled my life with joy.  I listen to Abraham (Abraham-Hicks) and I listen to Katie and from where I stand in a given moment, they seem like they are going in opposite directions. And yet, these two approaches have touched me in the most profound ways.

And they both lead to freedom.

Well, I talk about Abraham all the time.  Today, I have the privilege of inviting you to a call where Byron Katie will speak for herself.

This is a free call and I'm sure you'll get to hear Katie explain in her own words what she calls "The Work."  It consists of four questions and a turn around and it has the power to free you from the grip of your mind.  

So if you've ever wondered why what you're doing isn't working, or why you keep gravitating to your habitual negative thoughts, dial in tonight.  This might be exactly what you're looking for.

Martin Luther King Jr.

 

I invite you to watch this video and listen to the whole speech. (It's a little over 17 minutes.)
 
Regardless of the color of your skin or the country of your origin, I invite you to study this man's clarity and determination as a lesson and a model.

Somewhere toward the end of minute seven, he says, "Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred."

He speaks of "meeting physical force with soul force."

I believe that these are the images and instincts of peace and evolution, not only for our nation's racial pain. but for the pain of humanity as we clash with each other on so many fronts.

I invite you to listen to this man's words as if you had never heard them before.  And if you really have never heard them before, I invite you to listen even more closely.

I invite you to contemplate this man's dream and vision and bring it to life in you so that it can evolve uniquely in your contribution to our human family.

"Stand by Me" & "jhe"

 I received this email after yesterday's YOFA jhe Session and I am passing it along to  you:

Hi Rebbie,
 
First I would like to thank you for [the YOFA jhe Sessions]. I find that I recognize a change on the day you have done a session and then sure enough you send an email for confirmation. Today was no exception. Yes I do feel lighter and my heart which is usually big and open is more so today. The money thing and relationships are also much lighter it feels like freedom along with total trust and faith that everything is just as it should be and there is perfection it all of it.
 
If you feel inclined I would like you to watch a you tube video (see above)… It reminds me of what you and alot of us are doing standing by each other. I trust you will enjoy it as much as I do. Also you may want to share this video with your email list.

Love and Blessings
Annette

Today's YOFA jhe Session 6-1-08

xaxisabovebelowsm.jpgI did a YOFA jhe Session for the list today.

As a result of today's session I expect you to find some space in your life, in your thoughts, and in your environment.

  • It can mean a spontaneous clearing of clutter, allowing you to move through your space with greater freedom and clarity.
  • It can mean a quieting of habitual thought patterns, allowing you to have creative, inspired, and original thoughts.
  • It can mean a quieting of inflammation in the physical body, a reduction in pain, or a release of toxins, allowing your body to function with greater ease and greater healing.

This session focused on the X-axis.  You can augment the benefits of this session by doing the exercises in Session 10 of the Practice Section of Rooted in the Infinite.  This section begins on page 258.

Thank you for your participation in the YOFA jhe Sessions.

With Love and Appreciation,
Rebbie
