A Week with Abraham – Oh look…a squirrel!

My week spent with Abraham was so rich, so full of value. I can feel my power more now that I understand momentum. It offers me control – like my foot is truly on the gas pedal. The subtle changes in speed are perceptible as I lean into the momentum or pull back. I’ve never felt more deliberate!

As they spoke about momentum throughout the week, there were many times Abraham demonstrated the power of momentum by allowing someone into the hot seat who was bent on telling their negative story. Abraham’s response would be to kick them out (they’re doing it more and more lately – but in such a loving way) or distract them. I used to wonder why they always cut people off, didn’t let them talk. Now I know why. There’s absolutely no benefit in telling a story that isn’t serving them.

Recently Abraham has become even more witty, comedic – undoubtedly Jerry’s contribution. lol. When someone (Cancun, week one) began talking about a loved one on the “other side” Abraham began looking behind the blue drapes at the back of the stage. After a minute they explained that they were looking for the other side (The point being there is no other side). Often during week two, they would interrupt someone in the hot seat by pointing to something on the far side of the stage, saying, “Oh look…a squirrel.” Of course the audience would break into laughter and the occupant of the hot seat would get the point.

The point is…distraction is a powerful tool!

I’ve been applying this since I got back. Keeping things light and easy. Distracting myself before negative momentum gets going. My husband and I have been pointing out imaginary squirrels all week, and it never fails to get us laughing. (NOTE: if you want to see where this came from, watch the animated movie, UP. You can hear the dogs thoughts and how easily they’re distracted – it will also give you a visual, adding life to this delightful analogy).

It’s made me see how fickle we can be – not to mention lazy – when it comes to focus. We tend to live our lives unaware, helpless victims enslaved to a mind that has its own agenda. But that’s not the way it is at all! Once you get a whiff of the power that is available to you. OMG…it changes everything.

Abraham is using a lot of new terminology lately: vortex and grid (both concepts worthy of books with the same names) have been the theme of seminars for some time now. Lately I’m hearing terms such as momentum, spinning discs, laying new pipes (I’ll talk about that in another blog). People I’ve talked to are somewhat confused by the new terms – how they relate to earlier teaching and to each other. I have been a little, too, but this week gave me new clarity.

This is how I see it:

THOUGHT is attractive in nature ( which means it has the power to attract similar thoughts). As similar thoughts begin to assemble, they form a belief system which acts as a framework, or GRID, that continues to fill in with more like thoughts, ideas, inspirations, and eventually manifestations. Because of the creative power it holds, it’s helpful to see this grid as a SPINNING DISC, gaining MOMENTUM as it draws more to it. At any given time there are multiple discs spinning. How we feel determines which disc we are on. FOCUS allows us to choose (an easy process if we are aware and make the shift before the momentum gets too strong).

With a little practice, its easy to determine if the disc we are on is higher or lower on the Emotional Scale (a concept Abraham introduced years ago and can be read about in their book “Ask and it is Given”). Our ability to focus is the key. Paying attention to how our thoughts feel and exercising our ability to choose. Knowing too, that if we find ourselves on a disc that doesn’t feel good, we have the option to distract ourselves early on in the process.

Oh look…a squirrel!

Abraham talks about The Bridge

I first heard Abraham mention The Bridge at the Phoenix workshop in December (2011). It was in reference to Jerry’s passing and when asked they didn’t elaborate. I’ve been hoping to hear more, and of course when I ask it is given…I heard a wonderful explanation of it listening to the San Francisco workshop (February 18, 2012)

“The bridge that Jerry is making (for Esther) is that she knows the things he was interested in, the things that mattered to him most. So she can find those subjects and she can feel him blowing and flowing. She is able to accurately define the current existence of that man that she loved and that energy that she still knows is continuing on and there is no question in her mind, when she tunes to that, the specifics of that being who’s made his transition. Now that’s a bridge worth making.”

“She (Esther) can still feel the focus of his beingness, still feel the things that he’s most interested in.” (Here they relate the story of the Pines that block their view and how Jerry wanted them pruned. You’ll have to check that out.)

“The bridge Jerry is making for Esther is the bridge of eternal life, the bridge of eternal relationship, and the bridge of never-endedness.”

What I get from this is that those who have gone before us become the greater part of us. They help us to understand the connectedness, the eternalness of all that is. That’s the gift they give us. They continue to be a vital part of all that is and all that we are. The earth is still spinning on it’s axis because of their ongoing focus upon all things physical. The desires that they have carved out are still manifesting (to their delight) and our benefit. And we can have complete access to them, continue co-creating with them and enjoy them fully.

I tried to find one last quote. (I believe it’s from the Sacramento workshop (March 2012). A woman in the hot seat thanked Esther and Abraham and told of the love she felt for them. Abraham responded by saying (paraphrased) “Is it the love you’re feeling for us or the love we’re feeling for you? There’s no distinction. That’s the bridge.”

“It isn’t so much that Jerry or anyone from nonphysical perspective is bridging, it’s that your awareness of them causes the bridge.”

From the nonphysical perspective the bridge is always there and the love is always flowing, but we pinch it off by our grief and telling the story of loss. However, when we focus on a loved one who has transitioned, if we think of the love we feel for them, if we remember something they were interested in or passionate about, then we have access to that bridge, and the emotion we feel in that moment is the love and appreciation flowing both ways.
