"You are the owner of all that you perceive. But you can't perceive apart from your vibration. Feel your way, little-by-little, into a greater sense of abundance by looking for the treasures that the Universe is offering you on a day-to-day basis." ~Abraham [Excerpted from the workshop: Portland, OR on June 10, 1997]
Remember the phrase "Perception is reality". That is why Abraham talks about all you perceive. To piggy back on a recent post - if you perceive that things are not going your way, guess what? They will not be going your way.
And your vibration will be in alignment with that perception. So what are you likely to get more of? More things "not going your way".
What Abraham is trying to get you to do is go very slowly and find something about the current situation (perception) that you can feel good about and/or see some good in and that will begin to raise your vibration even if it's by a slow margin. Each time you raise it just a bit more, the closer you come to seeing (and then getting) the abundance that is your right and is there in the Universe for you to take. Remember that all you have to do is ask for it, believe that it will be delivered and stop checking your mailbox which undermines your faith that it will be delivered. Let the doorbell ring when your "order" arrives. This is the law of Gestation at work too. I know how hard it is believe me. Between wanting my feet to get better so I can run again and my sweet potatoes that I planted about 3 months ago now, I'm itching to "check on things" but know that I have to wait and be patient. I feel my feet will heal - I just have to stop being impatient. But the sweet potatoes - well, that's another story. I don't know if they are growing or will grow. This is my first attempt at something like this and I had nursed the "slips" since last fall. So, of course I'm anxious to see what's happened. But, I also know that if I dig them up now to find out, I will have destroyed all that's gone before. That's where the faith has to come in. If I did things right, I will have sweet potatoes. If I didn't, then I won't BUT I will have learned a great deal from the experience. That will be the joy for me. And rather than it all being "all over" when this year's planting is done, it will just be the beginning since I will be able to start over and make changes in my practice. That's what life is all about. Continuing to put into work what you've learned. And having the faith and patience to let things evolve.
Long winded, perhaps but important in order to give you the idea about raising your vibration bit by bit. Go slowly and you will get there. I proved that in Tennessee. I never thought I would get there with as slow as I was having to go. But with help from all around me, I kept going and eventually made it.
Keep on raising your vibrations this week!
