How do I sum up my thoughts and feelings about a week with Abraham-Hicks at the most luxurious resort I’ve ever experienced, with the most wonderful people I’ve ever had the privilege of spending time with? I’ve been thinking about it this morning as I’m basking in the deliciousness of the thoughts and feelings still coursing through me.
The teaching was profound, the interactions uplifting, and the food delicious. The service was impeccable, the weather perfect, the views stunning, the excursions fun. The connections I made were inspired, the memories unforgettable. Everything was magnificent, but let me be more specific.
This is of benefit to me because I want to capture the details of possibly the best (so far) week of my life. Not only that, but by spending time this morning remembering, savoring, basking, and writing, I can keep the momentum going!
That was the theme of the week I just spent. I heard it spoken, talked about it with others. I felt it. I practiced it. I now understand momentum in a new way.
Everything we do is about momentum!
Every thought we think adds momentum to the vibration we are experiencing – whether it be good or bad (higher or lower). The exciting part is that we get to choose which thought that might be.
There’s power in momentum. We understand that from science. We know from experience that once something gains momentum, it’s not so easy to stop or change directions. Abraham used the analogy of a car parked on a hilltop. When it first starts to roll, you could stop it with a little bit of effort if you were standing in front of it. But stand at the bottom of the hill and try to stop it – that would get messy!
They also use the analogy of jumping out of an airplane at 30,000 feet with no parachute. “Hold on it will be over soon.” Everyone laughs, but we get the point. Trying to stop the momentum when it really gets going is difficult if not impossible.
The good news is…
We can be more deliberate about it. We don’t have to wait for the momentum to gain speed before we take action. Understanding that our thoughts are attractive in nature and if not monitored will gain momentum quickly, we can take note how they feel and shift direction before they carry us somewhere we don’t want to be. It’s an easy practice. In any moment we can ask ourselves, “Is this thought adding momentum to something wanted or something unwanted?” Or even easier, “How does this thought feel?”
GOOD FEELING THOUGHTS = POSITIVE MOMENTUM = PLEASING OUTCOME.
Learning to feel the momentum of our thoughts is a valuable exercise. It’s beneficial to watch (and feel) the momentum – even when it’s negative. Don’t try to stop it. Just notice how quickly it builds and watch it without judgement. Do what you can to soothe yourself. Go general. Tell yourself it will be over soon. You don’t have to deal with it right now. Everything will turn out all right. Distract yourself with a nap, a good book, or a favorite feel-good movie.
Once you’re in a better space, do what you can to build the momentum in the other direction. Deliberately focus on things that feel good, friends that make you laugh, foods that taste good, memories that make you smile. Get out into nature. Take a walk. Listen to music. Then tell yourself that your building the momentum on purpose and see how long you can keep it going (Law of Attraction will assist you).
You’ll be amazed at how quickly you’ll begin to feel in control of your thoughts, your vibration, your life.
I plan to post more insights from my week in Cancun with Abraham. Stay tuned!!
