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

YOFA jhe Sessions: Spirutal Healing, Law of Attraction, and Time and Space

remote-healing.jpg

The only complaint I hear about the YOFA jhe Sessions is "I don't know how to talk about them…"

How do you talk about something that is invisible in a world that lives by the motto "seeing is believing"?

The YOFA jhe Sessions are remote inner alignment sessions. 
 
Well, that's how I describe them. 

But what in the world does that mean? How can they be invisible and be effective?

It means that we are coming from the understanding that there is one mind.  We are trusting the all pervasive Divine Design and the power of Law of Attraction to keep it in the perfect swirl. And we have an intuitive experience of the mystical here-now that sits silently, dynamically, infinitely, within all points of space and time.  

So the distance between us at the time of the session is a non-issue. Even the time of the actual session is irrelevant.

The jhe sessions assist you in performing your only job: Keeping yourself in alignment with your essence so that all the good that has been generated by your life experience can come to you. And it can come generously and lovingly and in ways that let you recognize the benevolence of the Universe and the Love that is your nature.

Hmmm. Is that too vague?

I guess I don't know how to talk about the jhe sessions either. I promise I'll keep working on it.  Because the people who are being helped by the jhe sessions keep proving to me that it's worth the exploration to keep figuring out how to talk about this invisible thing I call the YOFA jhe Sessions.

Abraham (www.abraham-hicks.com) often says, "Don't answer a question that hasn't been asked."  And so I usually remain pretty quiet on the subject of the jhe sessions.  But today I received an email that was bursting with questions.  That was the inspiration for this post.

Here are my answers:

Dear Rebbie,

i'm considering joinig your [YOFA jhe Sessions] active membership and have some questions bevore signing up:

What do i have to do?

Nothing.  If you want to, you can do the exercises in Rooted in the Infinite to augment the sessions but that is not necessary.

What about the intention?

Your intentions and desires are born in you on an ongoing basis.  The jhe sessions help you get in alignment so that they can come to you more swiftly, more effortlessly, and in a form that is more satisfying when it arrives. 

Unlike goal setting or visualizing, the jhe sessions are passive and they help you (if you'll excuse the expression) get out of your own way so that the things you have been asking for can find their way to you (that part is the work fo Law of Attraction.)

Do i have to hold my intention, or do i have to write my intentions down or does the process know what to do?

You do not have to do any of that.  You can if it brings you greater clarity and joy to do so.  But it is not part of the jhe sessions process.

Are there special times for the sessions?

No.  You will receive an email from me after each session with a description of the focus of that session and what you might expect as a specific results of the session. 

But really, these sessions are cumulative and the results of an individual session are sort of like candy while the ongoing long term effect is where the real nutrition is.  Some people have been on the list since the very beginning.  It is an ongoing process like brushing your teeth or meditation or physical exercise.  You can consider it part of your spiritual hygiene.

Do i have to do anything during the session or do i only have to enjoy? :o)

Just enjoy. 😎 

If you want more training, you can join the Inner Circle.  That membership includes the Active membership in the jhe sessions plus monthly recorded lessons, plus membership in the YOFA "Law of Attraction Gets Results" monthly online workshop, plus more bonuses than I can list here. 

The Active Membership is for people who don't want one more thing to do.  There is nothing to do in the Active Membership but sign up.

The Inner Circle Membership is for people who are hungry for more and want to get their hands in the clay.

Does my membership start from the 1st day of the month or from the day i sign up?

Your membership starts on the day you sign up.

You are beautiful! How do I know that?  I just do.  You are unconditionally beautiful because you are the fulfillment of the beauty of the moment.

At the January “Metaphysics of Results” Group Coaching Call I got on my soapbox about all this. 

I thought I’d share an excerpt from the call with you.

We have fun on these calls and they have been evolving into a warm and casual conversation. My thanks to those who attend these calls for inspiring the rich exploration that keeps flowing each month.

Do You Feel The Pain of Blame or the Joy of Responsibility?

People write to me and say that the Law of Attraction perspective has them feeling blamed and judged for anything that is going wrong in their lives. They feel guilty and embarrassed if their health fails or if they have financial problems.

Hmmmm. 

That is the opposite of the intention of this teaching. And yet, haven’t we all felt that way at times?

Do you know anyone who is feeling this paradoxical reaction to the otherwise empowering teachings of Law of Attraction?

If so, they might enjoy this little audio segment in which I sing the praises of the beauty of contrast.

You can still get all the recordings from this pre-recorded workshop and live call. CLICK HERE

Abraham-Hicks on Appreciation

I knew it might stir up a bit of controversy but it seemed worth it. 

It was my intention, in offering the post and video of Byron Katie on money, to bring something to light about the process of manifestation. 

Did it work? 

In response to Andrew's comment (and I think he speaks for many) I thought I'd explain this a bit further.

I want to show you different ways that you can instantly release your fears and anxieties about money. 

Then 2 things happen.  

  1. You get happier in your now.
  2. You open yourself to more satisfying manifestations.

I like to talk about these different desires as running along the different axes of our 3 dimensional world and body. (I explain this all in great detail in Rooted in the Infinite. )

Now, here is where it gets interesting.

Those 2 things that happen when you release resistance are happening along 2 different axes.

Let's look at it again:

  1. You get happier in your now. 
  •  This happens on the Y-axis.  It resides in your upright spine.  It aligns you with spirit and give you access to Infinite Consciousness.   
  1. You open yourself to more satisfying manifestations. 
  •  This happens on your Z-axis.  It resides in your forward facing awareness of time and journey.  It aligns you with the preferences of your unique incarnation and the choices you make as an individual creative being.

So, we can see Byron Katie's message as a Y-axis teaching or what we would traditionally call a spiritual teaching.  It does not depart from the now.

And we can see the Science of Deliberate Creation as more of a Z-axis teaching.  It focuses on the journey and reveals the process of manifestation.

And once Abraham strated calling this "The Art of Allowing," the focus came back toward the Y-axis.

And both axes live in your body and your world.

The Abraham-Hicks video above bridges the two.  Any true Z-axis teaching must be based in the Y-axis.  And Abraham is.

The harmony between the 3 axes and their native desires is at the heart of our YOFA Training.  The mystical meeting point of the three is the center point of consciousness. 

The art of aligning these 3 axes is:

I know this is a bit abstract.   I hope you find it useful.

The harmony between your Y-axis and Z-axis desires is revealed in the living of your life in every moment.

Your comments are welcome.

Today's YOFA jhe Session 6-27-08

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

If you can imagine many inter-dimensional versions of yourself coming into alignment, that would describe the effect of this session.

The power of this type of alignment can be felt in your clarity, and wakefulness.

As a result of this session I expect you to have:

  • a sense of lightness
  • heightened senses
  • a heightened feeling of being alive
  • a greater ability to communicate
    • Your words have great power
    • Your gestures are received by others
    • Your intention is felt

As you get clearer within yourself and your communication is empowered, life becomes more satisfying.

Thank you for being a part of this jhe Session.

With Love and Appreciation,
Rebbie
