THE OPENING VIDEO ON SELF-SABOTAGE
Ramona showed the opening video “No More Self-Sabotage” by Abraham Hicks which is available on YouTube at No More Self Sabotage
Ramona asked, “Where does Self-Sabotage live?” It resides in ourselves in misunderstanding and in talking about stuff we don’t want. The video pictures a stick and Abraham makes the point that like a stick, every subject has two ends. One end is what is wanted; the other end is the absence of what is wanted. The key is to know where to place your attention. If we are not careful we can be sloppy thinkers – willing to put up with thoughts that don’t feel good. That leads us to believe the non-feel good thought is true and therefore we think that thought. When we have developed patterns of thought that revolve around what we are observing we continue to get more of them.
These self-sabotaging thoughts make us feel unworthy to receive what we want, what we deserve. We declare ourselves not based on our thoughts and feelings. It’s all based upon our connection to a broader perspective. It’s like trying to use a vacuum cleaner without plugging it into the power source. We need to be connected to Source before we begin observing and manifesting. Only then will the things that come back to us be pleasing. We sometimes think self-sabotage lives deep inside us, but it doesn’t. It’s right out in the open because we keep talking about it. Our inner being wants nothing to do with it. That’s what’s deep inside us – true self-appreciation, self-adoration. The other stuff is just junk we’ve heard someone say. When we repeat it we just activate self-sabotage. So Don’t! Connect to Source and appreciate your own self-worth.
THE SECOND VIDEO ON RELATIONSHIPS AND CAREER
Ciera of the Burbank Law of Attraction Group was in the “Hot Seat” at a recent Abraham workshop. In the first part of her interaction with Abraham, Ciera asks why her career suffers when she is in a relationship, and vice versa. In the second part, Ciera asks for more clarification and wants to know if she can have a career and a relationship at the same time. A YouTube video of her interaction may be viewed at Ciera Video.
Abraham explained that the career issues have nothing to do with the relationship because it has nothing to do with the other person. Another person cannot introduce static and resistance into the equation. It has only to do with what we are thinking. This creates self-sabotaging thoughts. Recognize them as such and know that we do not want whatever they represent. Connect yourself to Source. Now knowing what we don’t want will help us know what we do want. This exercise adds clarification to our vortex. Having this relationship has now helped us because the most amazing relationship now exists in our vortex. Think about this: Every “not-so-great” experience we have had with any relationship (work, family, friends, etc.) has created even better experiences to come in our vortex. The next time we are in the receptive mode (through relaxation and meditation or any way to feel good and connected to Source) we will be inspired to a new relationship or job or anything, and it will be one that matches our evolving life as it lives in our vortex.
SELF-SABOTAGE OR SELF-PRESERVATION
What some people call Self-Sabotage Abraham refers to Self-Preservation (the basic instinct to protect oneself from harm). Basically we think we can’t have it all. Abraham says when we are awake we are always in the receptive mode. The question is are we in the receptive mode of Source energy or the receptive mode of paranoia – what our Inner Being knows or what others are telling us. Before we knew about being connected to Source while in the receptive mode, we were attracting all over the place. We listened to what others were saying which made us reactionary. We didn’t even know how we were attracting the things we attracted. We just noticed that we did. We are the ones who are calling everything to us.
Now that we understand this, life is causing us to want what we want most from where we are now – what’s in our vortex now. There is an active and revolving reality that has a strong point of attraction – and it is us. Just remember, everything is already cued up for us and all we need to do is to get into alignment. When we are inspired on all levels of our Inner Being, it’s influence is reaching us. And when we are open, we are inspired to the things that work well for us. That’s how it works.
A question was raised about what to do with complaining people. Here are some of the suggestions. Picture the complainers living their best selves until this becomes a habit; focus on the solution, not the problem; focus on the happy end result, not the issue; snap yourself out of the discussion and make yourself feel good again; change the subject to a topic that feels better; write what you do want and how you want to feel so you attract more of what you do want.
Another question related to being impatient when something is wanted, especially money. Here are some suggestions. Remember we can’t control our first thought, but we can control our next action; when we do estimable things we vibrate prosperity consciousness; count our blessings to feel good; appreciate what we do have ($) so we attract more; when we stay tuned to our emotions and feelings and connected to Source, we continue to enhance our lives in all areas.
After the discussion, we ended with a “hot seat” for members to “What If” their desires and many great suggestions were provided to uplift the participants.
Our next meeting will be April 3 at 7PM at Spiritworks in Burbank.
