Find True Love Over 50 with Law of Attraction

Get free access to the full seminar recording Here

We've been brain washed. We've watched commercials and read ads long enough to believe that attracting a relationship that makes your heart go pitter-patter is all about your appearance.  I'm not making this up.  Americans spend about $15 billion a year on beauty products.  So, if you want to find your soul mate, you might think it's all in the mascara.

Well, makeup is nice, but how good is a beautiful light bulb if it's not plugged in?  It is your light that makes you attractive. And in order for you to light up to your potential partner, you've got to spend some time plugging in to the source of your beauty-electricity.

Shine Your Light to Find Your Love

In this video, I offer a script to listen to regularly to get you "plugged in" to the juice and the joy of your new relationship (especially for my friends in the over 50 crowd!).  This excerpt comes from a teleseminar recording where I teach you how to change one thought to attract your soul mate.  One thought!

This segment is focused on scripting.  Scripting is an Abraham-Hicks process that you can use to bring yourself into alignment with your desire.  Then, let Law of Attraction match you up with what you are asking for.

So, if you are over 50, or over 60, and you are looking to find love again (or even for the first time) you can use the scripting process in this video to bring yourself into vibrational alignment with a new relationship that makes your heart soar.  This gets you glowing with beauty from within. (Of course you can add mascara as desired…)

Change One Thought to Attract Your Soul Mate

To find out how to change one thought to attract your soul mate, listen to the full seminar recordings.  There is no charge for this and you can listen to streaming audio or download the mp3s. Go to www.GreatRelationships.net and scroll down to the picture of the woman and man.  Enter your name and email.  You will get free instant access to the full workshop.

Abraham-Hicks Study Group: The Vortex – Happy New Year!

Happy New Year my friends.

I want to talk to you today about all those very powerful desires that you may be formulating right now.

(Scroll down to listen.)

[mc id="443" type="audio"]Quick Tips for Manifesting Your Heart’s Desire: Bite Sized Applications of Law of Attraction – Abraham-Hicks Study Group: The Vortex – Happy New Year![/mc]

Are you creating a list of resolutions, goals or intentions for the New Year?  I love doing that because this shifting of the calendar gives us an amplified feeling of a clean slate.  And a clean slate brings with it a feeling that anything is possible.  So we feel empowered as we look at desires that we may even have become very frustrated about in the past.  And now, with the New Year we have a renewed sense of possibility.  A rising of a feeling of empowerment and freedom to live the life your heart desires.

I was just listening to an Abraham CD and I want to share with you a perspective that dovetails perfectly with this energy of the New Year.

"When we speak of your past present and future, we acknowledge that during your past and even your present you are launching vibrational requests forward into your vibrational reality… What you call your future manifested reality is what we see as your present vibrational reality."

From the teachings of Abraham www.abraham-hicks.com

And so as we celebrate this landmark in time, and we look at the past year as the past and the new year as the future and we see our desires and goals as incomplete in the now and hopefully fulfilled in the future, we are not taking the Vortex into account.

My suggestion to you as you engage in this fun ritual of prepaving the New Year is to include your awareness of The Vortex. It's really just a simple flip of a switch.

Instead of seeing the items on your list as things you want to manifest as future realities, acknowledge them as your present vibrational reality.

Then you can resolve all your resolutions into one simple aim:  to be become a vibrational match to the you who lives in your Vortex.

Happy 2010!

With Love,
Rebbie

Inner Alignment Meditation: The Time is Now

Rooted in the Infinite

You carry the now around with you.  I know that may seem like a strange way to understand your relationship with the mystical now.  If you get really quiet, you might be able to feel the now breathing through the vertical energy of your spine.  I like to call that your energetic spine.  And I like to call the vertical axis that runs through your upright spine the Y-axis.   And so the Y-axis meditation (which is how we align with the vertical) offers a direct route to awakening to the now within our awareness.

[mc id="414" type="audio"]Untitled Media[/mc]

Meditation for Spiritual Awareness

If you come to the YOFA system of Inner Alignment seeking spiritual awareness and upliftment, the Y-axis meditation is all that is needed. Its orientation gives you access to the spiritual awakening that you seek.

Meditation for All Other Reasons

If you come to this system seeking healing, loving relationships, prosperity and all other forms of joyful manifestation, the Y-axis meditation is the starting point.  It's always the starting point.  And no other axis can replace it.  At least not as long as you are living here on earth!

(You can find out the inner meaning of the 3 dimensions and the 3 axes and their relationship to the earth in Rooted in the Infinite.)

So you can see that your alignment with the vertical is a fundamental aspect of the YOFA system.  As you work with the meditations in the book, I'd like you to give special attention to the Y-axis.  Like the trunk of a tree, it is the basis from which everything else that we do in this system branches.

Try This

Sit upright.  Feel the vertical "up force" as it lifts you from within. Allow all your muscles to relax so that you become a vertically balanced system.  Energy within you moves up and your relaxed muscles cooperate with gravity.  Feel the peace and stability that result from this awareness.  This is a wonderful structure for the now to live in as you.

When I was a teenager I used to attend Hilda's Thursday night Satsang. At that time we met at St Luke's Church in New York City's Greenwich Village. That was a profound experience for me, but there is way more to the story of Hilda's role in my life than what took place at those meetings.  (And, for anyone who was there, and I know you folks are out there because you write to me from time to time, you know that the energy of those gatherings was powerful, extra-ordinary, and inspiring enough to last a lifetime.)

There is more though…

I have to back up a bit. 

The reason I knew Hilda was because she was working intensely on healing my sister, Shelli.  In fact, one of my clearest memories of Hilda was when the doorbell would ring and my mother would open the door to our apartment. And there was Hilda, in her sari, and her English accent, and an aura of Love expanding out in every direction, unlike anyone else who ever rang our doorbell. 

And yet, this was a common occurrence.  Hilda was there, ringing our doorbell and entering our apartment like clockwork.

So, I've been reflecting on how huge Hilda's influence has been on me.  Her presence as a healer was such a big part of my formative years, that now, as I sit to do a YOFA jhe Session two times a week, I'm so grateful for my roots with someone who is probably one of the most remarkable healers and spiritual teachers of the 20th Century.

It's hard to describe the specific influence that Hilda still has on these remote inner alignment sessions that I do, but I want to acknowledge her and give her credit for much of my training – even if it was largely by osmosis!

When I do an inner alignment session for the people on the jhe list, I send an email explaining the specifics of the session.  I'm posting the email update that went out to the members today after I did today's jhe session.

You can sign up for the YOFA jhe Sessions HERE.

Today's YOFA jhe Session Email Update:

I did a YOFA jhe Session for you today.

With today's alignment comes an
intensification of personal empowerment.

This comes not from having power over others
but as a result of an intimate relationship
with the source of all creation.

Abraham (Abraham-Hicks.com) teaches us of the
profound relationship between freedom and
empowerment.  These are different names for
the joyful end of the emotional scale.

With today's inner alignment with your
essence, you gain access to great personal
freedom and empowerment. This happens as a
result of deliberate alignment with the
ever-present, sacred freedom at the portal
where the *now* enters your personal energy
system.  (Find out more about how this works
in the root chakra section of "Rooted in the
Infinite
.")

As a result of today's session I expect you
to experience breakthroughs in any area of
your life where you have been feeling stuck.

You may notice that you are no longer driven
by old self-sabotaging habits, addictions,
or negative tendencies. 

What a relief! 

When those patterns release-even just a little
bit-and Law of Attraction gets hold of your
true brilliance and brings you more of that,
well, let's just say there are fireworks in
your field of attraction and you shine your
true light.  This is the fast track to
success in any venture.

You may notice the results of this session in
funny ways.  You may have an enhanced
feeling of rhythm in your body and you may
find yourself tapping your toe or wanting to
dance.

You may find the faces of the people you meet
to be unusually beautiful – friends, family
and strangers alike.  When you see their
light shining through their human form, their
beauty is remarkable. That is one of the
probable results of this session.

You may have a surge of authentic positive
self-esteem.  This is because as the ego
comes into balance, you can own your
magnificence in a way that does not threaten
others.  In fact, it inspires the expression
of their greatness. Mutual appreciation
springs spontaneously from these
interactions.

I am honored by, and grateful for, the
opportunity to do this session for you.

With Love,
Rebbie

 The new Abraham-Hicks book The Vortex offers a precise understanding that can dramatically improve our lives.  And it is simple:  We consciously decide to pay attention to the relationship between the two Vibrational vantage points within us.

Two Hums

Right inside of you, at all times, there is the hum of what you are thinking about:

  • your financial situation
  • or your partner (or the lack of…)
  • or your body
  • or your job
  • or your car
  • or your home
  • or your parents
  • or your children

. . . and there is also the hum of what your Inner Being is thinking about those same subjects.

When those two hums are harmonious like a choir, you feel good.

When those two hums are divergent, clashing, and sound like a radio pulling in two stations at the same time, one with your favorite song playing and the other with a negative news bulletin, you feel bad.

And so, this book points to a very clear priority for us.

Our job is to pay attention to how  we feel (easy!) and to take to heart the old Abraham-Hicks adage, "Nothing is more important than that I feel good."

Why?

Because when I feel good, I am in alignment with Source.  When I feel bad, I am not.

Live Call

I promised a live call for this study group and I'm really looking forward to connecting with you on the phone.

Study group members will automatically receive the dial-in details. No need to sign up again.

This call is free and open to anyone interested in this book. Simply join the study group.  You will get announcements when this study group section of the blog is updated and you will get invited to any future teleconferences.

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

vortex.jpg

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

In the last focus, I asked you to consider Page 3 para. 3. of The Vortex by Esther and Jerry Hicks (The Teachings of Abraham)

I think I already mentioned we'd be going through this slowly, right?

Good, because now we move on to paragraph 4.

In respect for the copyright of this book, I will be using page and paragraph references most of the time, rather than direct quotes. I know this is less convenient, but while you have the book open, you can also get more context, read the surrounding ideas, and scribble in the margins to your heart's content.

Enjoyment

Ok, so last time we pondered the notion of going from enjoyment to enjoyment. We considered the idea of having set a pre-birth intention to enjoy every moment.

Now let's go a little further.

Please read the paragraph that begins with, "Before your birth into your physical body…" P3 p4

Contrast

Now, let's talk a little bit about contrast.  Abraham often asks you if you have "come to appreciate the contrast of your time and place."  Here, on page 3 of The Vortex, we're finding out that our relationships with each other are the primary source of the contrast we live.  Interesting!  And yet we welcome it (from our non-physical perspective). We love it.  We can't get enough of it! 

So please consider this:

When you:

·    are harmonized with your broader knowing
·    feel empowered
·    don't feel like a victim of the contrast you are living

. . . you welcome the contrast.  You perceive the contrast as the birthplace of your expansion and your potential for joy.

Then, all these relationships that run hot and cold, with their highs and lows, and all the contrast we find with the people in our lives, it all becomes the raw material of joy. 

So, now it is apparent that the idea of setting a pre-birth intention of enjoying every moment has infinite potential.  But maybe not the way we thought at first.

Where we might have originally read that statement of an intention for continuous enjoyment and interpreted it to mean that life would be a series of enjoyable, pleasurable moments, we now see a completely different picture emerging. 

And what a relief! 

Because, if the fulfillment of our intention for enjoyment were dependent on conditions, we'd be in big trouble, fast.

Empowerment

But what a breath of fresh air it is to know that the contrast is welcome – that our enjoyment of the moment is not conditional – that we are in charge of our state, regardless of conditions.  Whew!  This is good news.

Well, maybe it's not news to you.  Maybe you've gone to seminars and read books and you've held this conscious idea for many years.  (Me too.) Good.  Now we can all deepen our living of this knowing, no matter what our relationship to this truth is at this moment – whether it's old news or new news.

Try This

So here is a little game you can play.  When you've got something going on that you do not want, watch your reaction.  It will tell 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, all that means is that the feeling is one of disempowerment.  In that moment there is a feeling of being a victim.   At this point, so early in our journey together, let's feel the empowerment of simply noticing these moments as they happen. 

More to come…

With Love,
Rebbie

The comments (your comments) on this blog are the heart of this discussion.  I've been enjoying sensing the high level of involvement in the book and the authenticity of the offerings of all of you who are part of this study group.

And so, of course I want to encourage the flow of your sharing as part of the joyful journey into, and back into, and back into The Vortex.

Here is a technical tuning I want to highlight today.

I received this email which told me that some clarification would be useful:

Hi Rebbie,
Thanks for starting the Votex group -love it!  Just some quick feedback – when i came to post my comment, I could only find one area to comment.  In a previous email, I thought you had created a section where we could share under different topics such as AHA, process etc, but i could only find a place to comment under the daily blog.  Maybe it's hard to set up, but that would make it easier to keep all comments about the same topics in one place.
 
Thank you again for creating this gigantic flow of positive transformative energy xxx

It's true, there is only one place to comment.  I was suggesting that you could make the first line of your comment a category if you like. That way readers can organize their reading of the comments in a way that suits their mood. Here were the suggested categories:

  • Question – This will be helpful to me so that I can scan through and get to questions as quickly as possible.
  • Aha – Good for sudden realizations.
  • Sharing – How it is working in your life.
  • Pondering – Think out "loud" as you process

Feel free to create your own category or to not use any.

With Love,
Rebbie

PS – I just left a comment on this post as an example.
