Abraham’s been using so many new analogies lately. This one really resonates with me. I’m often in my head, trying to figure things out. Trying to analyze the whats and whys and hows of my life. Trying to get to the bottom of things. But Abraham says it so often:
There is no bottom!
We just keep a vibration alive that isn’t serving us. That’s not to say that we can’t learn from our mistakes. I know we can. I often get insight moving forward as I recognize the thoughts and feelings that fueled the old vibration. It’s the needing to know, needing to figure it out that binds us there. It’s the fear of making the same mistakes that increases the probability that we will.
In this analogy, Abraham describes the pond and creek system that Jerry and Esther created on their property years ago. It’s a circular system with pumps and pipes to keep it aerated and keep the water constantly flowing. Water is pumped into the pond, out through the creek, and back again.
One day recently, Esther noticed the pond was getting mirky, so she had someone come out to inspect it. They tried putting in a new pump, etc, but finally determined that the pipes that return the water to the pond were clogged. They tried for several days to unclog them, then announced to Esther that it would make more sense to lay new pipes.
Can you see why this is such a great analogy!
We tend to spend so much time trying to unclog our pipes (our old thoughts and belief systems). When there’s a problem, we want to fix it, deal with the crap that clogged it in the first place. It seems neglectful to just leave it buried and lay new pipes, doesn’t it?
Yet knowing what we know about the Law of Attraction, it’s easy to see how focusing on the crap that clogged the pipes just attracts more crap.
Just lay new pipes!
It’s really that simple. Start telling a new story. Start talking about what you want and WHY you want it. Stop talking about what went wrong!
NEW PIPES = NEW THOUGHTS ABOUT A SUBJECT (or a new subject altogether)
So how does this tie into what they’re teaching about momentum? It’s not easy and often not possible to change the direction of our thoughts once they get going. I think what Abraham would say to that is we need to let any strong momentum play out and not try to resist it. But once the dust has settled and we can look at our situation more objectively – that’s when we have a choice:
Try to fix what went wrong or simply LAY NEW PIPES!
