View Full Version : My Process of Manifesting Money (and Other Things Too)

Just today it was confirmed: my request was approved and I manifested $40,000 or so for me and my family. And I will soon manifest an additional $150,000 or so in the same manner. I am a money magnet.

How did that happen? There are many things I do every day - things that you, my IB, and Abraham have taught me. But there is one specific procedure I did, regarding money,that poured rocket fuel into my vibrational escrow.

Perhaps others haveused the process I'll describe here; it really is very simple. I am currently using this process, by the way, on other areas of my life...other specific topics. It has worked so unbelievably well with the specific topic of "Greg and money" that I am really enjoying seeing what it will do in these other areas. (Rest assured, I will post about them!)

How well has this process worked? Withinthe lasttwo and a halfmonth period I've manifested (or allowed) almost $150,000!!!! (in addition to the additional manifestations I mentioned at the beginning of this post, which will double this amount)

Here's what I did/do:

I give myself an honest assessment regarding how I feel about a topic (for example, "money"). Where is my current emotional set point? And I mean where is it REALLY? Not where would I like it to be. I actually "tell it like it is" (I know, I know...those are four-letter-words to us normally! :))

So far I've been addressing topics that I haven't been manifesting in accordance with my desires, so I've obviously been finding myself very low on the emotional scale. For example, when I started this exercise with "money" I found myself at the low emotional set point of "worry". And, obviously, this low emotional set point is the culprit regarding why mysource energy has been blocked regarding this particular topic.

After I truly identify my current, tell-it-like-it-is, emotional set point, I write about that set point. I roll around in that set point like a dog on a dead animal! I embrace that set point, pain and all, with full-on honesty. No justification! No rationalization! No wishful thinking!

Then I identify the next spot up the emotional guidance scale. Just one spot up! And I begin to think of the topic within the terms of that next highest spot on the scale.

And the next day, I do the same writing process with that next highest spot. (If it takes me more than one day to think of my topic in the vein of the next highest emotional set point, that's okay)

One rule has served me very well - never go up the emotional guidance scale more than one spot per day.

What I've found is that within the course of a few days (or weeks), I have moved up to the highest spots on the emotional guidance scale in regards to the topic on which I've focused. And then I'm flying and I stay there! And the new emotional set point is very real. So much more real, for me, than all the pretending, wishing, hoping, self-convincing, andfake-it-until-I-make-it that I did before!!!! I'm really there! I'm San Diego!

I was so amazed by my recent $40,000+ manifestation that I felt compelled by my IB to post this process. And I really hope it speaks to you!!!!

To the God in You,

Greg

Thanks Greg. I like your specific black and white process! I can do that! :exactly:

OK, I started doing the exercies but I'm a little confused. I can see myself at worry when I think of some situations but then I really think I'm hopeful. That's quite a leap. The more I try to wallow, the more I think hopeful is where it's at. It doesn't feel good to be at worry or even at disappointment or pessimism (and those are relatively far apart steps). It makes my stomach feel uneasy and my heart feel fluttery. I really, really want to be hopeful and I feel better when I am. Does that make sense? I think staying at hopeful and feeling hopeful is better for me. Does that blow the whole exercise?

I don't want to make a big, hairy deal of this. Just trying to get it!

cheers,

aurora

Hi Greg!
I love your process - it's so simple! Thanks for sharing it. ::wow

My friend and I were just today discussing finances. We both have heard Abraham say that we've all put plenty of money in our vibrational escrow. We basically don't need to do any more asking. It's the ALLOWING that we are not doing so well with. So, my friend and I decided to ONLY THINK ABOUT MONEY WHEN WE CAN FEEL GOOD and if we can't feel good, TRY TO FEEL JUST A LITTLE BIT BETTER and then, distract ourselves.

So, it seems this was really what you have been doing, too! I'm so happy for this validation.

I will definitely come back to post and let you all know how the marvelous story unfolds for my friend and I.

Much Love,
Tracy :)

Aurora,

I'm really glad you raised those issues! I almost wrote about them, but I figured it would make my original post too long.

1. The uncomfortability of "where-I'm-at". Good point. It is very uncomfortable! Why? Any time there is a gap between my emotional set point and my desire, there will be discomfort/pain. That is why I don't use this process on things about which I feel no discomfort. And, if I feel discomfort, it follows that there must be a gap between my emotional set point and my desire. And, for me, if I don't get honest about where I really am, I cannot move up the emotional scale; I cannotmove up tobetter feelings.

It's like the old saying, "Until we agree to suffer, there will be no end to the suffering."

I know this sounds upstream. But, remember, I am only using this process on topics about which I'm feeling pain, feeling discomfort, and/or not manifesting like I want. So, in every case, there is obviously already a gap between vibration and desire.

We've been conditioned by society to dampen our desires as a way to ease the pain. That doesn't work!!!!! That's playing small!!!! The only thing that really works to ease the pain is to raise our vibrations to the levels of our desire! And this is the process that allows me to really raise my vibrations - not slap band-aids on them!

2.Feeling snippets of higher emotional set points amid the lower set points. Yes! When I am writing about my lower set point, I often feel flashes of hope and other better feelings. That is natural because I have been retraining my mind for a while now and I am getting used to "taking control" of my thoughts and finding/focusing on the better feeling thought!

Once again...bear in mind that I am only using this process on a topic that causes discomfort/pain/lack of manifestation. Obviously, my "real", most constant,andsteady vibration on this topic is not the better feeling thought (even though I am fully able to access the better feeling thought) or I wouldn't be needing to focus on this topic in the first place!!!

So I don't discount the better feeling thoughts. I just write about the current lower emotional set point (and the next highest one on the next day, and so on, and so on...)

And I don't go around all day dwelling on "worry" (or whatever the problematic emotional set point is) either. I am cognisant of the "worry" and I rephrase the specific topic in terms of the next highest emotional set point, but I don't make those feelings my dominant focus for the day. But, once again, if "worry" is truly where I am on a specific topic about which I feel pain/discomfort/lack of manifesting (and if I'mfeeling discomfort than there must be a gap between vibration and desire, right?) than I was carrying "worry" around with me all day anyway! Make sense?

I hope these clarifications make sense.

To the God in You,

Greg

Hi Greg,

I thank you for this thread. I really get now, how you use the scale. And, I think you are in alignment, a living example, of how to use the scale productively, the way Abraham intended the use of it, and why they gave it to us.

I, now, understand, "I get", what you were trying to say to me in PM, about this process.

I'm going to be up late, tonight, and I might be able to find one of my two copies of "Ask and It Is Given".

This process is going to have my full attention tomorrow.

I'm thankful I cleared my writing/creative desk area today.

I'm ready to go now!!!

Thank you for the inspiration Greg. You are fantabulous!!!!

2) What are the levels of emotional vibration (each day you go up one level)?

Greg-

Thank you for sharing this. I appreciate how you got so detailed about everything. I have realized in my own life that I had jumped back and forth too many times. I tried too hard to get to a really good feeling place, especially when I had those "flashes" of that feeling. I also learned that it really is a process!! Your very specific process will be of help to me in some areas.

And your process shows us how much that little movement can affect things. Abe has said, and I have to remind myself constantly, it is not getting to bliss that gets it done. It is those little movements, just feeling a little better in the moment that really shifts things and getting the energy flowing and the doors opening.

I think we forget that so many times because we think we need to be feeling great all of the time. And I do love when I feel that way and really feel the energy flowing. Yet just making a little adjustment, turning in the direction we want in the slightest way can really get the ball moving!!

I always appreciate reading your posts!! Thanks for sharing and keep it coming!!

Lots of love to all-

Caroline

Hey Marcin:

To answer your questions:

1. The money came, yesterday,in the form of forgiven debt. Literally, we owed a bank a loan and the bank said, "You don't have to pay it back. We'll write it off and you owe us nothing."

(As an aside, an attorney who has been involved with this process just about fell out of his chair, saying, "Why in the hell would they do that for you???!!!!" When he said that, I hadan initial flashof extreme fear, "Oh shit! He's right! The banks won't really do this for me!!!" Then I quickly relaxed and, remembering that the universe will move people and mountains to fulfill my desires, decided to use his reaction as an affirmation of how absolutely powerful and ironclad is the promise that we cannot have a desire that the universe will not fulfill! We are the ones who dream small and play small- the universe doesn't know the difference between finding a penny on the sidewalk versus a bank saying, "Greg, you don't owe us this huge loan anymore...you don't need to go bankrupt...I tell 'ya what, instead of going bankrupt, why don't you just forget about this huge loan for which we have your liability lock, stock, and barrel?" Too much!)

2. The "levels of emotional vibration"? Sorry. I tried to be consistant with the vernacular of my posts. I am always refering to the emotional guidance scale from Chapter 22 of Ask and It Is Given. So, for example, if I was at "Disappointment" (number 12)on a certain topic, then I would focus on moving to "Overwhelment" (number 11)next. Just follow the scale up.

Caroline:

Great points! And you reminded me of something very important that I didn't include in my original post.

Just as Abraham promises, I've found that I start feeling better the moment I move just one tick up the emotional guidance scale! Abraham is right!!! "Worry" does feel better than "Blame"!! Is "Worry" where I want to be, in the long run? Heck no!! But I notice immediate relief from just one tick up the scale.

And I also notice that I start to see exciting, new manifestations as I move up the scale. With each movement in a better-feeling direction, I begin to manifest and allow a little moreout of myvibrational escrow - regarding that specific topic! It feels a bit like slowly openingthetop of a treasure chest! (I.E. Of course "Worry" doesn't allow as much from myvibrational escrow as "Passion" will!!! But "Worry"does allow more out of myvibrational escrowthan "Blame" did!!)

The manifestations start to feel like a steady, powerful flow somewhere around "Hopefulness" and "Optimism"! So, depending on where you start on the emotional guidance scale, asteady flow of manifestation may only be a week or two away!! Just keep being honest and keep writing...that's all I do!!! The universe takes care of the rest!!

Thanks for your responses!

To the God in You,

Greg

Greg, I cannot express how grateful I am for your detailed sharing.

I read your post in the morning, and it dawned on me that I'd closed myself up, kind of stuck a smiley face, soI asked powerfuly that I feel my TRUE emotions on this topic,however intensely painful, and sure enough my first half of the day sucked.I was aware of the pain the whole time but didn't suppress it.

However now I know where I truly am on this topic and THAT HELPS so enormously, my journey is quantified. And I've had a great afternoon.

To thecourageous god that you are.

BRAVO, Greg!!! :beautiful:

This is one of the most inspirational threads I've ever read. And I just couldn't believe how the bank actually forgave the debt, just said "Don't worry about it!" Simply amazing. (Actually, since I've also seen how the Universe will bend over backwards for me, too, I guess I shouldn't be so surprised, should I? LOL)

I'm going to start trying out these exercises as you do, because it is obviously working. I'm so grateful to you for sharing. Please continue to share these magnificent manifestations, and as always, best of luck!

Lots of love to you and yours, ::hearts

George - that's it!!!! You've summed it up in a nutshell!!! Thank you, my friend!!!

This process I use and have begun to describe in this thread replaces my old process of "slapping a smiley face" on certain topics. It replaces the "if I never look in that closet, the mess doesn't really exist" paradigm!!!

I've never encountered any bad feelings, using this process, that I'm not already dealing with everyday anyway - no matter how "stuffed", denied,and glossed-over they might be!!!

George and Nancy, I literally wept with joy and gratitude (for the universe, for my growth, for this process, for your summation, and for your love) after I read your posts. Your energy and love touched me so deeply. Thank you for sharing it, my brother and sister!

To the God in You,

Greg,

A big bear hug to you! When I first read this,...I instantly felt..."something feels right about this".

This morning I sat and wrote. I just wrote...what really is the truth?....I found words like bored, irritated and frustrated. Instead of feeling disturbed by my negative words...I actually felt EMPOWERED!!! It felt so cool telling it like I really feel it. It was so easy as I kept writing to want to talk about what I do want....and then I noticed when I talked about what I do want....it felt more REAL. More realistic,....not the I am writing good things becasue it is the right way.

Fascinating to say the least! You do have a strong powerful vibration, your posts feel so real/believable/ doable!

I was wondering...
Have you ever considered doing this as a profession? As a financial advisor-- Abe style???

::wow You have such an AMAZING gift and it seems like you REALLY enjoy sharing your knowledge. Just wondering. ???

Thank you so much for sharing!

::wow I'm blown away with this process AND I'm ready to get to work! LOL! If it can really be called "work"! LOL! How exciting and FUN!

I can't stop myself from thinking...

Hi Greg,
I just wanted to thank you so much for this whole thread and to say that just yesterday I was asking "how can I deal with this "subject" and move it to a better place if I am sort of keeping it in a closet." It was real clear to me that the problem is still here and that I want to move myself up the scale with it. At the same time I have much improved emotional set points regarding many other topics. And then I read your thread and I read the additional questions and answers and this quote really helped me because I can see I had been was returning again and again to a wanting to be able to take some emotional action on my big "subject". But I was blocked as to how to do that in an Abe like way -- but now I can see that I can use my workshop time to write and identify where I really am specifically on that -- and then go for one rung up the emotional scale. Thank you.::TU The clarity and specifics of your posts are so much appreciated by me!!! :) Sincerely, Chris

wonderful process.....yet wanting toemphasize what Abraham has stated that the words of the emotional guidance system while very helpful are only
"...words that are used to describe emotions, but there are really only two emotions: One feels good, and one feels bad." AIIG pg. 117
"In fact, giving word labels to the emotions could cause confusion and distract you from the real purpose of your Emotional Guidance Scale. The thing that matters most is that you consciously reach for a feeling that is improved. The word for the feeling is not important" AIIG pg.115

The key here is that the slightest improvement is of great value...rather than putting the happy sticker on where you are and trying to think you are doing better than actually FEELING the slight improvement of relief....THAT's MOVING ENERGY...the other is just mental....lol....

"you would not want to mask your own feelings, pretending to feel different from how you really feel. For pretending in this way does nothing to change your vibrational point of attraction. The only way you can do so is to change your vibrational offering, and when you do change your vibrational offering, the way you feel changes, too. "AIIG p.133

...The purpose of the process is to find the relief from resistance, or The purpose of this process is an improved feeling, or The purpose of this process is to improve my Emotional Set-Point." AIIG pg. 138

I felt inspired to share these quotes because I was using this process myself on the subject of finances and I felt worry...and I made peace with that ...didn't put a happy face on it....but from where I was at when I reached for relief it did not take me to the next incremental "word" or emotion on the written emotional guidance system but rather to hopefulness....I considered that was quite a jump...especially after reading this thread....but as I continued to observe myself it FELT right...it was relief...it was now where I was and anything in between worry and hopefulness like disappointment or frustration etc. felt upstream....in fact it felt contrived and even ridiculous...and my Inner Being was quietly reminding me of all I have learned from Abraham to trust my own feelings and I FELT RELIEF and that was all that matters....

So I felt inspired to remind any one else who is asking for this....don't get so doggedly motivated to change your set point that you get stuck in the idea that you have to take your thoughts/feelings and beliefs incrementally through each and every "word" or feeling up through the emotional guidance scale or your some how quantum leaping and once again putting a happy sticker on your vibration. But rather,

TRUST YOUR OWN INNER GUIDANCE

You can't get it wrong. And you can't ever get it done.

Have fun with it. Be easy about it.

Good Point Richann.

I remember Abraham saying the emotional guidance scale was developed because teachers needed something concrete to assist in their teaching. It all makes sense to me.

As others have pointed out Greg, you are a wonderful teacher. I like the way your process settles the bubbling stew down to deal with the separate ingredients that I might not even realize are in there.

Richann~I can also see how folks so eager to "do it right -" could become somewhat obsessive about each step in the process. Some might move that way and others not. Likely the movement would be different for different topics as well.

I can seevarious topics in my own life where a genuine shift in my emotions/vibrations actually moved me1/3 and then 1/2way up the ladder with no real experience of the feelings in between.

Hey Beautiful, I totally agree, I actually do not refer to the emotional guidance scale at all because I find I get stuck worrying about and trying to define where i am. (I say things like- OOhdamn, thats low, thats not where I want to be!) But the next one up usually does not feel comfortable either.Sometimes, trying tofeela particular emotion is upstream for me.What I do isI say, am I feeling negative emotion? Yes? Then I need to find a better feeling thought. I wonder what I can think about that would make me feel better? AND IT IS DIFFERENT THOUGHTS AT DIFFERENT TIMES...Sometimes I think positive thoughts about the same subject, sometimes I change the subject, sometimes Ido a process called asking source to soothe me into my connection, sometimes I get up and move...so I couldn't even classify it! The most important thing is that you find relief! Catch yourself in the act of thinking a not-so-beneficial thought and pivot!!

Richann,very oftenmy relief is much greater than one or two points up the scale because my stream is moving quickly and I have tasted that sweetness of feeling REALLY GOOD so when I release the cork so to speak, it floats back up to that good feeling place that I have established as my vibrational set point.

It is so good to feel relief. I say pay close attention to your guidance. If it feels bad, is bad. If it feels good it is good.What works for one person, doesn't necessarily work for another person.

I am so happy you are feeling positive emotion Greg! That is what we are all here for.

Here is hoping we all find relief in our own way!

I love you all,

Richannand Shari, your posts made me feel better! I've been thinking quite a bit about the process Greg describes and I get it.

One of my thoughts is about the 17 seconds Abe describes as the point where other thoughts join that one and get stronger. I totally understand that if I'm feeling worried, I should just admit it but do I need to go with it and wallow in it? Can I say "I'm worried but things always work out for me." and mean it and then get to hopeful really fast? I think I can but maybe I'm fooling myself.

Also, if you have some physical symptoms that are causing fear, couldn't you jump right up to worry and skip anger, revenge, etc. since they wouldn't really be significant in that case? I can see going from fear to worry and back and forth with none of those other things in between (7 emotions left out!)

It's so nice to have this space to chew on this and all you bright and wonderful beings here to do it with. :beautiful:

I love our variety of understandings and the knowing that it WILL work out for all of us. It so much fun to have so many processes to play with.

I'm still going to try your process Greg. I started at overwhelment instead of worry. Only 4 days to contentment and that ain't bad! :)

I'm appreciating all the clarification I'm getting here.

Thanks Greg, and everyone, for this most stimulating exploration. I appreciate the subtle nuances of everyone's communication - indications of how this material is really being lived and worked in your lives...it so nourishing to tune into.

I too am going to work very consciously with your suggestions, Greg...(have already started!) and will be reporting back next week too. It's feels so delicious feeling you kindred spirits alongside, also dedicated to freedom and delight.

When I was little I used to love the Passover holiday because I found it so exciting that people world-wide were focused on a story about liberation -- all at about the same time.

Since finding the Abeforum it feels like everyday is Christmas - or Passover...with all of us reaching each day - each moment - to expand the degree of magic and freedom we are ready to ALLOW. ::dancer

LaughingHeart
09-29-2007, 09:43 PM
Richann and Shari, thank you for pointing out a bevy of wonderful points. I agree with you!

Let me clarify: I'm only using this process on issues whichare causing me pain and ones where I am having obvious, long-term difficulty manifesting within.

For example: this process took my family from sure bankruptcy to a releasefrom litigation, debt forgiveness, and financial excess within atwo month period. And, as amazing as that might sound,I'm trying not to overhype what hashappened to usfinanically since I employed this process. Whatis actually happening is much, much grander!!!

I don't use this processwhen I am having a bad day, feeling low energy, or feeling down. And, certainly, for instances like those, it wouldusually be silly to work my way up the emotional guidance scale, one emotion at a time.

No, the topics I use these techniques on are ones where a large gap exists between my vibration and my desire. And for such topics I've found it very helpful to advance slowly and thoughtfully. Why? Because I've usually invested a great deal of time and energy, previously, slapping band-aids on the topic in an effort to cover-up and make myself feel better. Never really looking at it honestly.

If I had been looking at it honestly, I undoubtedly wouldn't be feeling the big gap, the pain of the distance between my low vibration and my high desire!

For less "serious" issues/topics I am very often able to jump right up to joy with a healthy pivot. Often listening to an Abe recording or a great, high-vibration song will be enough to pivot me out of my "pothole." I don't take the time to stop at each emotional set point for those types of issues/topics.

Natasha,thank you so much for your praise! Yes, I do life-coach. I've even written (and performed) coaching protocals for my school system and some non-profits. But not full-time. I also write self-help books, newsletters, and children's books. But not full-time. I will eventually become an Abe-focused coach (probably, once again,not full-time), with emphasis on finances. But I want to consistantly vibrate on the level of joy and love in regard to my most important topics before I manifest that. For now, it stays in escrow! ::thumb

Greg

Greg - This is an awesome thread. What an inspired conversation!

I swear, we must all be aligned somewhat because I've been thinking along these same lines lately. I've been prompted by the new book, but your ideas here are right in line with that.

It's about telling the truth (as Abraham says, "I am where I am") and then going downstream from there - or finding relief - or finding the next best thought. On a recent tape Abraham said "we live our lives in the crack". That crack between where we are and where we want to be - we're always closing that crack - and that's exactly what you are describing here.

It's beautiful. It's awesome. I think for me - I've been doing a lot of putting a smiley sticker over the empty gas gage thing... since this book - I've been doing less of that - telling more truth, relaxing in that truth and then finding the next best thought...

Greg, I like this line of thinking and I totally agree with you... Abe always says- you cannot inspire others to their connection if you are not connected yourself so this is a really good plan. I have recently been thinking that I want to get into my next *serious* relationship when I am ready to love the person because loving them feels good & I do not need them tofeel good. I want to be 100% in control of howI feel.I just want to love loving them & loving heaps of other things in my life...

Thanks Greg for this thread and the clarifications from all of you as it grows.
It gave me some real clarity the other day about my whole approach to this all.
I have had some major manifestations come to me in the last few years.I would ride the high for awhile but I would always eventually come down.I would wonder how did that work?.As I look back now I can see that when I really REALLY wanted something and got really REALLY clear about having it it would come into being.I went on a trip a couple of years ago.A few months before I left I had no money,zilch!.I remember visualizing it in detail,And then thinking strongly,IT IS,and throughout the days talking about it thinking about it acting about it as if it was a sure thing,absolute.Things all came to gether pretty quickly,A nice unexpected winfall, a free ticket,etc etc.After I got back though I was back to "old self",All the positive thinking in the world did nothing for me.I am now understanding about my vibrational set point and moving up the scale.I always liked things quick so I wanted to go right up there fast,so I would put happy face stickers on it and pretend.... then discouragement.hmmmm?.Also, this way I did things then was kind of exhausting,When I finally went on the trip I was kind of wiped out mentally.The Astonishing Power Of Emotions is my favorite Abe book yet.I am getting it now little by little about just dropping the oars and floating.I love that!.
I thank you all,especially you Shari!,your so BRIGHT!,your smile is very infectious and your enthusiasm is inspiring!

jak3b I canidentify with what you've said. I have two distinct currents going on within me about money.

One is that of anappreciation of money, loving the feeling of money flowing through me. I've cultivated this stream consciously studyingeconomics, entrepreneurs. Seeing money as a tool for expressing gratitude,overpaying those who provide great service, and seeing the sense of joyit gives them.This has manifested in the last couple of years in my life as -

Allowing$40,000when I was 17, with no specificskillsat the time, no investment, in less than a year. (A gaming thing I did online, and that money goes quite far when you're in Asia)

My first company calling me a month after I left them and saying "Hey, we liked the work you did so much, thatwe're sending you abonus cheque" . There was no legal requirement whatsoever forthem to give me that.

My secondemployer whom I'd to leave in a few months, even though we had a great rapport, saying "I understand you want to follow your heart and explore, I'm with you and to make it easier for you here's a bonus AND an extra months salary".

Even last month, on an impulse walking intoa bank and finding some decent money in there,though I'd received confirmation from them earlier that my account there was closed.


And the other current in me, whichGreg's post helped identify was thatofguilt about earning money, not saving money, spending money. I've heard those thoughts in my headfor quite some time, but didn't paymuch attention, mainly because after these years, I just couldn't believe those thoughts were still there. This has manifested as me:

Spending heavily (and feeling guilty about it)

Too many a times totally running out of liquid money to the point of not having food for aday until I liquidate some of my assets.


This topic of money comes up multiple times every day, so its become too exhausting not to deal with it. I'm going to take it one step at a time, there's no hurry, Ido want to be sure of my vibrational offering. The emotional guidance scale does work, jealousy feels perfectly right and relieving to a part of me, though the other part of me which celebrates wealth can'tbelieve it. This is going to be good, I can just imagine the sense of coolness once I've integratedmy vibration and have a senseof absolute knowing.

I'm not sureif I'll be able to get onto the forum much during this time, but you guys have touched andhelped me beyond what any othergathering has ever.



Love,

George

God bless you, George!!!

I am currently using this process on my sense of self worth. Talk about a "big issue", huh?

:beautiful:

I want to reiterate thatjustone move up the emotional guidance scale, for a long-term bugaboo (like "money", "self worth", "relationships", etc.), brings relief and new manifestations appearing out of escrow!!! I'm not that high up the scale yet, but I'm higher up the scale than I was five days ago. And I'm noticing some cool stuff moving out of escrow to me!

The analogy I'm about to give is verified by science. One doesn't have to be into Abe to know this:

We are like pianos. When you strike a key on a piano, it causes a hammer to fall on a chord and a specific note is created. The note is created by the vibration of the chord you have struck by hitting the key.

Our thoughts are like the keys on a piano. We are creating "notes", every second of every day, through the vibrations of our thoughts. And, in our universe, like attracts like.

I like to think of bad-feeling thoughts as the deep, bass keys on my"piano" and the good-feeling thoughts as the higher keys on my "piano." And my every thoughtstrikes a "chord", sending avibration out into theuniverse and creating my reality.

The practice of moving up the emotional guidance scale, one emotion at a time, is just like moving up the scale on a piano keyboard one key at a time. Before too long, you're "playing"only thegood-feeling "notes" on your "piano."

And you'd better be ready to duck as your desires come flying at you, out of escrow!!!

To theGod in You,

Greg

Hi Greg!

I used this analogy in a different thread last week and I feel it's so appropriate. When you have new "sheet music" (circumstance) you play it through once giving it your best attempt and then see where you need to stop and work on what's giving you the most challenge (contrast). We often have to slow it down (realize where we are at on the emotional scale) and practice it (accept where we are....it's OK) and with each practice run we improve our playing (raise our vibration/emotional scale).

I really like your processes. A lot of "issues/circumstances" we can easilymove up the scale on, but when they're perhaps closer to our heart's or a deep-seated belief or resistance, slowing down and moving increment by increment, I believe it will be overcome and we can move with the flow. This really helps me with resistance that seems to continually pop-up. That's an indicator I need to slow down and work on the process a little more thoroughly to put it at rest once and for all.

Thank you for sharing your processes. It's really been helpful to me and intend to start applying them right away! ::hugging

::TU Greg, I've been out of the loop this weekend and came back to check in with the forum. Your post is the first I read. What a WONDERFUL way to start my morning. This is a particular problem for me. I worry about money all the time and the funny thing is I don't need to. I'm not rich but I have enough money to support a life style I am comfortable with. So why the worry.

Recently in my hypnosis class the teacher ran our birth numbers and told me that an overriding issue in my life is security. I am also studying Louise Hay's works on healing and went through her list of illnesses and causes. I searched through every illness that I had experienced in my whole life and everyone of them related my issues of feeling safe. :shock: Can't get much more eye opening than that I knew I had to change my vibration about money and then I logged on and found your post.

I'm sure it's a life changing moment for me. Worrying about money is a life long habit of mine so it won't be easy to fix. I've been trying to bounce it up the emotional scale like some of the others suggested but this one is way to ingrained for me. I'm going to have to start at the bottom and work myself up one day at a time. Just like you suggested.

Thank you so much for the post. Now I've got the process I know that I'll soon be white water rafting (another fear of mine....lol) DOWNSTREAM to the fincancial secuirty I am looking for.

Thanks so much for sharing.

thank you so much for posting this :kiss:

feels so good to read !

i'm definetely going to apply this process too. i often get stuck in a rather negative emotion because i just cannot find a better feeling thought.

but this process sounds so effective, and on the other hand so simple...

i'm very interested in reading more of your manifestations !

Hi Greg and all-

I wanted to come back and reread this post again, it is so great and I love your process. I know my thinking can sometimes be very scattered and I have happy stickered a few large issues. I tend to love feeling good and shudder at the thought of going into those icky feelings. Abe has said many times that our vibration is where we last left it. And they suggest if it comes up consistently to work it up slowly, just as you described.

I am also remembering reading somewhere recently, probably on the Abe quotes list, that they mentioned many of us skip anger because we don't want to be there and sometimes we really need to go there to move up. I know I have done this myself. If anyone else has read this specific thing and has the quote please post it. They specifically addressed anger.

My tendency is to blaze through reading, listening, reading and on to the next thing, often not taking the time to practice what I have learned. In listening to Abe for a few years now I am finally doing some of the processes much more deliberately. I have also loved everyone's different ideas regarding this topic. I love taking the time to type out my thoughts on the computer.

Sometimes I don't feel like writing and I will just talk it through out loud. Sometimes this involves yelling, ranting, punching a pillow to get the energy out and that can also be very powerful.I just like to find times when no neighbors are around to here my yelling!! It feels very empowering toreally direct myself in this exercise. It is important to remind myself of not being scared to experience these feelings since Ican choose to reach for the better thought.

Practice, practice, practice! Results, results, results. I am getting it and knowing that digging in and really moving up the scale will have long-standing results in my dominant vibation.

YouAbers rock!!

I wanted to shout out to you all that my vibration regarding money has gotten better, I've attracted money in from two different sources since last posting, one of them totally unexpected.

Greg and Shari, thank you so much for your love and blessings.

Like Greg uses writing, I talk to myself out while taking a long stroll for an hour or two. Today's major resistance was about "if I have all the freedom, all the money to make the choices, how can I be sure I won't do evil" I had no idea how to bridge that, so I just let go and say dear universe please help me resolve this resistance, I think I'm having channeling experiences, its my own voice but feels very good for hours and most of all, is very enlightening.

Greg,
I belatedly want to add my appreciation for your process. I have been applying it with my money and am flying higher and higher vibewise.

I also apply it to areas I am having trouble with and am flying with those to. Watch me continue to manifest "work is easy and effortless." That is until I don't have to work anymore as I know that someday there will be a time of retirement with all the money $$$$$$$$$ hanging out in VE. It is seems to be about enjoying what is deeply, noticing what is working, and appreciating it.

Thanks, Greg. What you say makes sense and you were able to share it with a bunch of us whom it resonated with.

Many blessings and allowing,

Thanks Anni, Shannon,Femshine,and others.

I have experienced a lot of contrast this weekend. My wife and youngest son visited from North Carolina. I viewed this weekend as a chance to see how I was manifesting in relation to my desires surrounding self-worth. I experienced some amazing highs and some deflating lows.

Which, actually, is just about right. Concerning "self worth", I'm currently at the emotional set point of "boredom" (using my process I've described in this thread). I perceive "boredom" as a place of in-between vibration. Not great/not terrible. Not quite yet ready to quit playing small, but also not quite ready to start playing big. Lots of courage mixed with ample fear.

And that's pretty much what got reflected back to me. I'm going to keep writing on self-worth, because "boredom" is not where I want to stay long-term. But, for me, self-worth is a deep-seated belief systemso I'm proceeding slowly and deliberately. Carefully! No slapping smiley faces over empty gas gauges!!!

Regarding money - I must report that I still rock!!! I rock. I rock. I rock. Thank you universe!'Cause I love money and money loves me!

Over the course of the last few days I've had $600 arrive in the mail. I've had a credit card bill be "mysteriously" $450 less than I expected. And I've had a bank tell me I don't have to repay over $126,000 in loans!!!! (My attorney said to me today, "Greg, I have no idea why {this bank} is being so good to you!" But I knew!!! Because that's where I'm vibrating concerning money!!!!

Back to self worth for a moment - there is another thread where someone posted a passage from an Abraham workshop. Abraham said that self love is not about finding love flowing to us. It's about finding a way to let love flow through us from source. When love from source is flowing through us (to other people, places, and things) then we really experience what we really are. Love. And that is self love.

That meant a lot to me and I've been focusing on it today rather than feeling mad, sad, sorry for myself, or hurt.

Thank you Abers! Sometimes I think you've saved my life. Even if you haven't done that, you've sure helped give me a life worth living!!!!!!

Let's keep rocking!!! Let's keep closing the gap between our vibrations and our desires!!!

To the God in You,

Greg

Due to technical difficulties, I have not been able to access this forum for weeks. I solved the problem late last night.

During those weeks, I have encountered some problems with my business, revenue, and sales.....basically money.

So, the first night I am able to come here and read in weeks, I stumble across this thread in which Greg tells me exactly what I need to do. Imagine that!

I've all ready begun the process, and mapped out the format for the future entries. I'll let you know how it works out.

I just checked my account online and found a $1,970 deposit that was made to me today for no reason. I didn't "work" for it. I didn't "ask" anyone for it. I just allowed it.

And in approximately ten days, we'll receive another $26,000 and we'll get rid of a "headache" in the process!!!

I rock. The Universe rocks. I have such passion for this!!!! It is so awesome to experience the debts melting away!!!!! And the money rolling in from everywhere and anywhere to make it happen!!!!

I just discoverd this Forum after losing my businesstwo weeks ago. (An art gallery I had for nine years) I was in a pretty deep depression until little by little I got clear on some things and with the help of people on this Forum, I am feeling so much better and even excited about my future. Greg, your post has me so psyched!

A favor to ask. Could someone with time on their hands write down the Emotional Scale. I don't own any of the books and have only listened to cds so I've always been a bit vague about this.

I must have already done some of this because yesterday the husband of a friend of 20 years called to say he wanted to buy one of my paintings for my friend's birthday. He drove over an hour to get here and ended up buying two!!! This was the day I was supposed to get an eviction notice for my apartment! All I did was these tiny changes from a really dark place and voila!

Having this Forum feels like such an amazing change in my life. I'm thrilled!

You can go to www.abrahamappreciators.com (http://www.abrahamappreciators.com) and go to downloads by members. I think it is near the bottom. There are several there, some in word format and some as web pages I believe.

You can see the scale and refer to it as a bunch of people thought it useful to make a download available for everyone.

I am so glad this thread was bumped for us to read.

I find myself taking what my mom or husband comments on and immediately upgrading the comment to a higher stance or I put a happy face sticker on it. It is if I can't allow them to be who they are at the moment.

But what it really is .....is a mirror to the place that I don't want to associate myself with. (and that is at a lower vibration than what I care to admit I am).

Thanks for putting this into perspective - and that it is perfectly fine to be where you are. And to accept where you are.

I plan to spend some time with this also.

Oh, and I am in the Louisville area if you have meetings or workshops nearby.

It's been a while since I've posted (I've missed you, you beautiful creators!)

I want to keep this energy river flowing! I'm getting close to wrapping up some more debt and I want to post an update of my money manifestation process.

Since August, I have now paid off $21,575 in debt (using cold hard cash that I simply allowed to manifest)! And, since August, I have allowed banks to forgive $540,272 of debt (two attorneys have told me how unbelievable this is...but nothing is unbelievable unless I choose it to be so. And I ain't choosing to "unbelieve"!!!!).

::LOL

Allowing these manifestations has taken a lot of energy and focus. In the process, I've learned to meditate much more deeply and more effectively! Actually, regarding "what I've learned", there is too much to post! I need to write a book!

Thank you universe, of which I am a part!!! Thank you universe, of which I am a worthy co-creator!!! Ihave so much love, money, joy, companionship, friendship, efficacy, and purpose!!! I have more than enough to fill my heart's desires!!!

Thanks all. JMAC, your inspiring words are enough to tell you that I am, indeed, writing a book. It has my story and exactly what I am doing in step-by-step detail.

Of course, I will not tout my book here. That is NOT what this forum is for! I will continue to share my experiences here!

Meditation? I'm no expert. Here's what works for me:

1.Sitting/resting meditation - I sit cross-legged andtouch my thumbtomy middle finger on each hand. I picture a large movie screen with the words "Our" and"Father" on the screen bigger than life. Then I focus on the blank space between "Our"and "Father."

All the while I chant "Ahhhhhh" (the name of God) and imagine good feelings flowing up from my groin to my head/face. Feelings like love, freedom, and abunance.

When thoughts come I do my best to let them float away.

On most days, I am able to spend a few moments without ANY problem thoughts. It is a state of no resistance and it is beautiful.

(A shout-out to Wayne Dyer for most of this)

2. Living meditation - during the day, when I feel resistance I mentally step back and say, "Oh, I'm resisting. How curious; that is interesting. What am I resisting? I don't have to do that." And the acceptance of my resistance (rather than trying to fight it) usually released it and I jump right back into the stream of source energy.

Hello Abers. I'm no longer able to post at work (our firewall won't allow forums) and I've been busy with feeling good and doing a lot of writing lately, so I haven't been on here as much. I have been filled with energy and taking inspired action - pumping out a number of articles on LOA and quantum physics for our website. It's been a blast!

November has followed suite as a month of tremendous allowing for money manifestation. I'm still waiting to hear final word on our last two pieces of big debt, but my desire is for the banks to forgive those two as they've done the rest.

I've paid off almost $30,000 in debt this month! So far! And had another $10,000-plus of debt forgiven. Where does the money come from? You know the answer...I am allowing the universe to share it with me.

Case in point: an albatross of a property was finally sold this month. The buyer paid cash and is rehabbing it. There were some snags on my end, which delayed the sale for a couple of weeks. The buyer became increasing agitated, for various reasons, and called my realtor on two occasions demanding reductions in his purchase price. Both times we gave him reductions - amounting to total discounts well over $3,000.

I never stressed on the loss of money. And I never focused on it. I just said, "Thank you, God. Thank you, Universe."

At the closing last week, the buyer showed up and paid us the full purchase price! There was no mention of any of the discounts and no anger on his part. Believe me, thisbuyer is an experienced, old-hand at what he does...he didn't "just forget" to give us $3,500 less for the property. I have NO explaination for this other than the explaination I have for finding money on the ground. Thank you, Universe!

For example,after writing about it I realized that I believed that "I need to bepunished for my mistakes." Also that "I must EARN and DESERVE good things." Now...there is nothing inherently wrong with those two beliefs - I am free to believe them if Iwant.

But guess what? I don't want tobelieve them any more because theyact as resistance to the flow of source energy and all good things. So I continue to play a game of "imagine if those things I believe aren't true."

Imagination is so wonderful and so powerful -our thoughts arereal! Over time I can feel my new beliefs taking shape and the old beliefs atrophying!

I love this life. I love you. Thankyou for reading this and making my experienceseven more real and wonderful!

To the God in You,

Greg

Greg - that is such fabulous news and it's been wonderful to follow your story through this thread. I don't post often but read a lot and this thread really stood out. I will also try your process - thank you so much for sharing your ideas and your story.

I'm wondering if anyone on this forum has tried Greg's process in conjunction with EFT as a way of identifying and clearing beliefs on each rung of the emotional scale before moving up? I know many people on this forum have used EFT in conjunction with Abraham's teachings and while reading over your process it seemed like it might be worth a try.

Thanks also to all of you for writing out your new statements of belief (i.e. I love money and money loves me!) - it's so fun to read them and then think "Yes! I want that belief too! I'll then write them down and incorporate them into my book of positive aspects.

Thanks again -

Greg--wow!--you've inspired my first real post since joining.

I found the Grabhorn book at, of all places, the grocery store. I suppose I can order the workbook.

Just curious, where were you on the EGS while incurring the debt?

THANK YOU again for journaling your inspiring path.

I was just wondering if you know that Lynn Grabhorn was a student of Abraham? She didn't seem to go too far in acknowledging it, and her book was a bit of a stretch for me, because she seemed to keep going for the BIG leap up the emotional scale. But it IS a fascinating read on the power of positive thinking and ramping up the emotions.

I have a process that worked really, really well for me that I have shared with those who have PM'd me, and I am going to copy and paste it below. Here it is:

1. Great book! Money is Love: Reconnecting to the Sacred Origins of Money by Barbara Wilder.

A short book with processes and meditations that were veryeffective in clearing my deep-seated beliefs about money, as

well as understanding that money is anything BUT evil.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. A process from the Ascended Master St. Germain (channeled by Molly Rowland);



First of all, St. Germain teaches that money is “the currency flow of God” AKA “Good.” Literally---the vibrational flow, a “current” that flows from our Source to us.



St. Germain also teaches that there is enough currency on this planet right at this moment for every man, woman, and child to have $4 billion dollars. It is there. And your good is YOURS. It does not have anyone else’s name on it. [Or as Abraham says, “It is coded with YOUR DNA.!”]



3. So….St Germain says to sit down every day for about 20 minutes for at least 7 days with a notebook, and start writing everything that comes to mind about money….

“root of all evil”

“filthy lucre”

‘ill-gotten gains”

“can’t buy me love”

“nobody in my family ever had any”

“wouldn’t know what to do with it if I had it”

………………………………………… ….and on and on and on………………………

When you finally feel in what St. Germain calls “the Lord God of your Being” [i.e. your Solar Plexus] that you have emptied yourself of all your “programming” on the topic---TAKE THE PAPER OUTSIDE AND SET A MATCH TO IT! Release it to the Universe.



If it burns readily, you have done the work. If you have to re-light the paper, then you have to do the process again for a few days until you have dumped more of the programming.




This is where I shifted into the Barbara Wilder book and worked that.
5. VERY BIG!!!!!! I TITHED!!!!!! Yep! If I found a dime on the sidewalk, I tithed every bit of any income that came to me. I learned this from Edwene Gaines, a person that I know of personally, who has written a book, called The Four Spiritual Laws of Prosperity. It is another way to clean up your vibration.



I TITHED TO ANYONE OR ANYTHING THAT HAD GIVEN ME “SPIRITUAL FOOD” THAT MONTH. I have tithed many authors, musicians, Jerry and Esther, even the AbeForum!!!!



Why tithing??? Because it gives you a feeling of having money to spare! Because others who have broken through the “lack barrier” have found that tithing put their feet to the fire. Because when you tithe, you have broken the habit of being anal about money, of feeling like you have to squirrel every little dime of it away to fend off some new disaster…




I played the Prosperity game in AAIG. I got a real checkbook ledger, used real deposit slips, and wrote on real-looking checks I bought at the teacher’s supply store. Every day I spent $1000 more than I did the day before.
I found that this process FORCED me to think about WHAT I COULD BE, DO, OR HAVE IF I “LIVED LARGE.” I discovered that my mind had never truly gone past the little confinement I kept myself in as a result of lack-consciousness. There was stuff out there to “buy” that I never really even knew about!!!!



7. I played (still do) "The Wallet Game" from AAIG--and I spend that $100 on things every day.



8. I use the "Ledger Process" and created a ledger for myself on the Excel program, and paid off just about everything in a year, even a $20,000 personal loan! THAT one totally shifted my energy even about seeing the bill(s) in the mailbox! I still use it faithfully---it's down to the holiday credit card and the mortgage now.



For an idea of what this netted me in the first year, you could look at my blog on [another website]. PM me for the web address if you wish to see it. Look for the entry on “How I used ‘The Secret.’





There is an interesting section inViolet's notesthis week from the San Antonio workshop. It has to do with the concept of "UNworthiness" as the reason that we have held our Abundance away fromus.



Abraham said that the "unworthiness" has been ingrained from the teaching about "original sin" from the religions. As St. Germain has said,"It has kept us away from our Divine Inheritance." Hmmmm--the Bible "editors" let slip in the phrase, "It is the Father's good pleasure to give you ALL."---but you don't hear THAT from the pulpits. ::chin

Thanks Patricia. You've given us quite a lot to digest. And digest it I will!

Barb, NO WAY was I doing anything spiritual when I incurred that debt! But I thought I was. I had the best of intentions - but I was all action and no feeling.

Actually, I'm writing about it in my blog. Like Patricia said, PM me if you'd like the web address.

Many wonderful Abers have been curious about my debt-forgiveness process.

To date, I have gotten banks to forgive over $700,000. As in, “You don’t owe us a dime, Greg.” I’ve had two attorneys in the last couple months look at me with their mouths agape, saying, “How in the hell did you get them to agree to that? Why would they do that for you?”

Bear in mind, our feelings are so much more important than our actions. How you feel about something will always, always, always trump how you act. Even if you take the greatest action in the world, it cannot overcome your feelings about it.

That said: the action for this process is easy. Simply call the lending institution and ask. Every entity which lends money has to deal with default; all these companies have divisions which work with borrowers in, or nearing, default.

Be honest with them. Of course present the facts in a way that works in your favor, but do not lie.

They will have forms for you to fill out. Fill them out promptly, attach a detailed letter explaining your circumstances, and mail them back the next day.

Give them a week and a half. If you haven’t heard from them, call them back. If you can’t speak with the individual reviewing your case, try to get the name of that person. Begin building a relationship with this person – leave polite, business-like messages and always do what you say you’re going to do, when you say you’re going to do it.

If dealing directly with the lending institution doesn’t go anywhere, you may feel inspired to search for, and contact, legitimate organizations that work with borrowers in, or nearing, default. Professional assistance can, at times, be invaluable.

Now - how you feel while you perform the actions I’ve described is the important part! Here are some things I do to make sure I’m “feeling it” instead of worrying, being afraid, saying, “They’ll never do this for me!”, doubting, and/or focusing on what I don’t have:

1. Anytime you’re contacting the institution, whether via forms you’re mailing in or a telephone call you’re making, think, “This is going to be a great opportunity for this person to do the things they’re really good at and the things they want to do. This person has been waiting for an opportunity to help a deserving person like me – waiting for just this kind of an opportunity to make a difference in a deserving person’s life!”

:beautiful:

Think those sentences any time you find yourself wondering (or worrying) about what the answer to your requests is going to be! Repeat it over and over until it becomes your expectation when you think about your lending institutions.

2. Write thank you letters, in advance, to the person, or people, with whom you’re working. As soon as you know a name, sit down and pre-write that person a detailed thank you letter, thanking them for the exact outcome you desire. Go into detail about how they’ve helped a truly deserving individual (you!) who will not be wasting the precious second chance they’ve been given! Address this letter and sign it; it is a real letter that you’re simply not sending YET!

This is an important process in creating an expectation for a certain outcome. It forces you to walk through all the “they’ll never do this for me” fears. Remember: those fears are only a belief! Just a simple belief! You can just as easily believe, “they’ll do this for me”!

I’ve been amazed at how many of my letters, when I go back and read them, were 100% prophetic. Nostradamus eat your heart out!

::whistle

3. Once you’ve taken the action necessary and you’ve performed your process techniques as described here, forget about it! Go on and live your life as if you have no problem! Because you don’t!

In fact, take it a step further. Conjure exactly how it will feel to have this debt gone. Revel in the security, the safety, the elation, and the freedom! Then, once you’ve held those wonderful feelings in your heart, make a decision to feel that way right now. All the time!

::shooting

Live your life as if you’re already free of the debt. Because you are! Literally (think about that one for a while::thumb).

There’s much more to write but this post has already gone on too long. Thanks for reading this marathon! Sorry I wrote a novel.

To the God in You,

Thanks Patricia.

Wanna hear something fun?

This morning I was balancing out November's register and updating my debt repayment schedule.

I set a goal, back in September, to have a particular debt ($11,000) paid off by the end of 2007. As I updated my records, I saw that with a December payment of $1,900 I will have it paid off! As I updated my checking accounts, I looked for the $1,900 and opened myself up to finding it (as I have done so many times since I started these processes last August).

I knew it would be there,yet I only found $900.

But that didn't bother me at all! I knew finding the additional $1,000 during the month would be child's play. After all, I've "found" over $60,000 in cold, hard cash since August. What trouble will the universe have coming up with the additional $1,000 I need to reach my goal of paying off this debt?

About 2:30, I got the mail. In the mail I found a check for $1,000! I just sat down and laughed, filled with satisfaction and gratitude.

Thank you universe!

Yes, I totally agree with this . . .
Let me be honest with you. I am behind on my taxes. Many peoplesay to me, when I tell them, how theythink I'm going to jail or will be in jail, etc.
I assure them, I am not worried as I keep in touch with the IRS each year and tell them the situations; and work with them to,soon, to get me up-to-date. Plus, there is no debtor's prison anymore; the IRS chases folks who owe hundreds of thousands of dollars [if I owe, it's more like a couple of thousand based on my income] or millions and I am honest with them.
Last year, when I phoned the IRS -- I hadn't filed 1996, 1997 [I did file 1998]. So, since I had moved for the20th time and didn't have all the forms from those previous years [they are in storage in another state]. I was having themmail copies to my new address. The IRS,informed me that my 1996, 1997 WERE NOT even ON THE COMPUTER anymore and that I "do not have to worry about it"!
I told her to check and double-check as I know I didn't do them. She did and said, they are gone and I don't have to do them for thoseyears. ::wow

Thanks for sharing, Greg . . . you are inspiring. I have to do that "up-the-emotional-scale" process you talked about at the beginning. Perhaps it is 'old beliefs' about money that is keeping the larger flow from me?

Yes, this Abraham practice and processes are working beautifully for me, too -- yet, I'd really like it to be on a bigger scale regarding money; and for whatever reason, I must not be allowing it completely as some of my visualizations are for quite a bit more!::rocket

::money
Interestingly enough, Greg. . . I, too, have felt a calling to write a book about my LOA experiences!
Yes, Patricia B, also moved me . . .about the tithe. On my birthday, this year, my LOA meet-up group and I each took $100.00 each, had them changed into twenty $5.00 bills each and handed them out to people on the subway! It was so much fun! And letting go of $100.00 dollars, just giving it away, was freeing.
::fireworks
Another thing I'd like to share . . .
Years ago, a friend of mine was the Choreographer for a little community theatre in my hometown of Phoenix, AZ. Frank was a very lovely, special man who would always greet you with "God love ya'!"
Each show he would allow a young person who aspired to become a Choreographer to be his assistant and help create some of the dancing for the shows.
At Frank's "celebration" of his life [he passed on at the age of 32-year-old] -- one of his young Assistant's told this story.
She had been the Assistant for one of the show's, of course. And on closing night, Frank handed her an envelope. She opened it and found several bills adding up to $25.00 dollars or so.
She asked Frank, "What is this for? I thought this was a volunteer apprenticeship."
Frank replied, "It is, but I wanted you to know what it feels like to be paid for doing something you love. And that you deserve it for bringing your love, dedication and joy to the show!"
That gestureencouraged this teen girl to apply to college and major in "Dance", even though everyone else encouraged her to study business. She loved dancing!
As far as I've heard, she did become quite an accomplished Choreographer!
Love and Light,
Angela Theresa::frog

Wow. You are most certainlya deliberate creator who knows how to manage his reality. And it leaves others "stumped"(grin). Not everyone is on the leading edge - huh!

Very wise words. I've finally learned (and I wish I had learn this sooner) that our feelings are everything, if we know how to gauge them properly. With them, they become the deliberate creator's tools on how we create our own personal reality.

And like you wrote, action can never overcome (unaligned) feeling.

Thank you Greg for your continuing inspirational input! Words cannot express my appreciation for your examples.

When I first read your thread way back when, I thought "yeah brilliant, wonderful and awesomestory, but that'll never happen for/to me!". Well gradually I have be easing myself into alignment with the simple and profound thought of "why not me? I want it and I deserve it".

I am starting the ledger process. I am playing with the idea of financial freedom and loving my virtual realities of luxury and prosperity.

I just wrote to letters to my 2 main debtors thanking them for releasing me from my debts just like you said.It felt good! It also felt like the most natural normal thing to happen - no big deal. Well that's how the universe views it right?!

I am feeling very light about it and loving this feeling.

Hi Greg,

Your examples have been an inspiration to people far and wide. I related your story to my sister yesterday and I could feel the palpable relief from her as she listened. She is practicing thinking new thoughts to change old beliefs about having to work for money. I could tell that your story was a changing point for her as she realized that it really does happen. That it is not just a dream.

So I thank you for this very much. No words I could have used would have soothed her like your story did. So may the Universe pour money down on you!!!

Life is So GOOD!

Today I sent the final payment to close out a $10,000 debt! And I only just started paying on it in October! When Icrafted the note accompanying the last check today I wrote, "I hope this money blesses you and enriches your life. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share it with you."

Now I'm raising my vibrations and setting goals for book sales and website income in 2008.

I spent the first 40 years of my life thinking that my thoughts were reactions to my world. Funny. Good to know, now, that its the other way around!

I've noticed a lot of new members to this forum. To the question, "Doany of us evermanifest big stuff?" Oh yes! It works and its real! Its science.

If I'm willing to extend value to the universe I can expect the universe to flow it back to me!

Here are two things I’ve learned as I’ve transitioned from deliberately attracting financial freedom (as you read about in this thread) to increasing my active, positive income.

Here’s the first thing:

Have you ever gone for a jog and finished dripping with sweat? Your jog was over, you leaned forward and grabbed your shorts to stretch and rest, and your sweat dripped off your forehead and hit the pavement.

You weren’t sweating so profusely because you leaned forward and grabbed your shorts were you? No, of course not. Your sweat was coming from the hearty exercise you were engaged in twenty minutes ago.

Your (then) current sweat represented the results of your previous exercise.

Your present physical reality is the same way. Whatever and whoever currently surrounds you is the culmination of your past beliefs and actions, not your current ones. Looking at your present reality as anything else is folly.

So do not make the mistake of defining yourself by what you see and experience when you look at your current circumstances. Your current circumstances have little to do with how you are deliberately attracting today. You will deliberately attract different things in the future based on today’s beliefs and actions.

That’s great news if you find yourself in an undesirable situation (like I was in) such as an unfulfilling relationship, an empty bank account, or a mountain of debt! Free yourself from the self-made prison of defining yourself by your present circumstances and surroundings.

Here’s the second thing:

Remember that everyone else in the world is really only you in a different package. And, in turn, you are the same thing as everyone else in the world – just in your own unique package. So if you desire more customers (or desire debt forgiveness as I did), all you’re seeking is for you to give yourself money (or for you to forgive yourself of debt, as the case may be).

Strange, huh? What the heck am I talking about?

The material world is a big quantum ocean of (mostly) hydrogen, oxygen, carbon, and nitrogen. From this ocean every single material person, place, or thing is manifested. But no matter how different two “things” may be, they are both just part of this big quantum ocean in which we exist.

Think of a warm spot in the Pacific Ocean. That warm spot remains even though billions of water molecules are passing through it each second, becoming part of the warm spot and then leaving it to become a different part of the Pacific. You are like a warm spot in the ocean.

It’s like Wayne Dyer has said: the ocean is God and you are a wave on that ocean. (And just as a wave is what the ocean is doing, he goes on to say, you are what God is “doing”)

There are billions and billions of warm spots in this quantum ocean. Each warm spot is a person, or a flower, or a candle, or a clock, or a dollar bill, etc. But all the warm spots are just a part of this quantum ocean – irrespective of how diverse they may be when compared to each other!

That puts a different perspective on desiring more customers doesn’t it? All you have to do is get yourself in a place where you know you deserve more love and more reflected value…from yourself! And you’ll soon be deliberately attracting lots more money – just as you desire.

And just as I am! I’ve raised my daily intake from my website from $12 a day to $14 a day in the past month. And counting. Simply by applying the same vibration raising process (I describe in this thread) to “making website sales” as I did/do to “financial freedom.”

Try it yourself! I’ll keep you posted on my progress…



To the God in You,

Greg

::moneyGreg, thank you so much for this thread!

I am wondering if you wouldfeel comfortable sharing a couple of examples of your writing/feeling up the emotional scale?

I have used the moving up the scale process with money but I found that I was trying to move from worry to appreciationall in one sitting. Of course it was too much of a leap and I moved back to worry. Also I find myself thinking my way up the scale and not really feeling it.

My set point around money is also worry. So do I just sit and write thoughts of worry about money until I can't think of any more? Then the next day do the same with the emotion one step up?

You have also inspired me to approach my bank (After I have moved up the scale), to forgive a debt that was left to me about 4 years ago when my ex-hubby went bank-rupt. I live in Australia, so I am not sure if they do that over here.

Love & Appreciation

Narelle

PS. I loved hearing Abe sayingthat the slightest little adjustment in your vibration will cause avolanches of stuff you've been asking for to begin showing up!

What a magnificent example you are Greg!! ::frog

LaughingHeart
12-28-2007, 11:52 AM
Good question, Narelle.

Here is the process:

1. I identify an issue or topic about which I am experiencing emotional pain. About which I am mired in a lower reality than my desires. Remember that all emotional pain is simply the distance between your vibration and your desires - the greater the distance the greater the pain.

2. I chose "making money from my website" as a topic to which I will apply this process. I have spent, literally, hundreds of hours working on one of my websites and, forover a year, I have been stuck at an income level lower than my desire for it. Hence, there is a gap between my vibration (what I am currently experiencing) and my desire ($100/day).

3. I take out a piece of paper and a pen and I write about my feelings regarding "making money from my website." I let myself freely flow anything that wants to come out and I write it down. I stick, however, to what I am REALLY feeling about it - NOT how I want to feel about it or how I think I "ought" to feel about it.

These feelings are not going to be positive. They do not feel good either. It takes courage to write about them honestly! Because they are no fun to think about and deal with!

But here's the thing: I am not writing down anything, no matter how negative, that I'm not already dealing with everyday on, at the very least, an unconscious level. In other words, writing about these bad feelings doesn' t make them real. They are already real - I'm just not in the habit of honestly looking them square in the face every day.

Let's gethonest here - it's much more comfortable to slap a smiley face over the gas gauge then it is to go fill the gas tank! Of course we would never do that in real life because we couldn't get anywhere without gas in our car. But we do it all the time to ourselves - spiritually - when we slap smiley faces over our bad feelings.

So with this initial writing, I officially declare - no more smiley faces on "making money from my website"! I don't feel good about it! I hate that I'm not making more money! It sucks to feel this unworthy!

4. After "vomiting" my real, honest, current feelings about "making money from my website" on my page, I look on the emotional guidance scale and identify where I am. In my case I see that my writing aligns my most closely with "worry" because I am worried that I'm never going to see more income from all my effort. I'm worried that all my effort has been wasted. I'm worried that I don't deserve more money from my website.

5. At this point, I write "Tomorrow - doubt" at the bottom of the writing I just did. Because "doubt" is the next highest emotion on the emotional guidance scale. And then I start thinking about "making money from my website" from the perspective of "doubt". I meditate about it, and I let it ruminate in my mind.

6. The next day, I sit down and write about "making money from my website" from the perspective of doubt. I give myself permission to really feel "doubt" about making money from my website. I roll around in it. I set up camp in "doubt" and write about it and write about it and write about it.

What I find is that, with that much effort and attention, I am able to really make an actual transitionfrom"worry"to "doubt" regarding "making money with my website". First of all, it's not that big of a leap. It's a realistic up-tick of emotional perspective; it feels real and genuine because it's a slight improvement...NOT a smiley face slapped over an empty gas gauge!

Sometimes it takes a couple days to really embrace and "be" the next highest emotion. And that's fine. It takes as long as it takes - but I don't procrastinate on the process intentionally.

7. I move only one emotion up the scale at a time. One day at a time. Any faster becomes "slapping a smiley face".

As I move up the scale, I notice that what I'm manifesting improves dramatically - sometimes with only one tick up! That's because I'm vibrating (and, thus, attracting) differently even with only one tick up the scale.

I also notice that my perspectives change as I move up the scale. What I thought I would be thinking about and writing about often turns out very differently in real practice. For example, I started writing about "making more money from my website" thinking about people making clicks and purchases.

Now, tenspots up the emotional guidance scale, I'm no longer focused on that at all. Instead I've transitioned, in a very natural progression, into focusing on delivering greater value (and impuning greater value into the work I've already done). I now understand that delivering value is what it's all about (and feeling that what I'm doing has great value).

If I'm delivering great value the universe will reflect that back to me. I don't have to sweat how that will happen, it's the law! And it's already happening. I'm seeing a couple more dollars per day already!

Pretty cool stuff!

Is that enough of a description? Would you like more details?

To the God in You,

Greg

I love this thread to pieces. :) :) :)

I'm full of appreciation for Greg for so clearly explaining his very practical process to us: thank you!

As I'm applying this to something in my own life, I realized very clearly that I was at "frustration/impatience/irritation", which was kind of cool. Before I started writing, I kept thinking "What if I can't clearly see where I am?" but it was really evident in my writing.

Neat.

My question is this, and maybe there's a better thread for it? The next step up the scale from where I am is "pessimism". I know Abraham have said that these labels are just words, don't get hung up on 'em. But I'm having trouble understanding how - tomorrow! - I can shift into pessimism and feel better. Does that make sense? My current feeling of frustration and impatience is pretty much an "annoyed" feeling. I do actually believe I can have what I want, I just feel thwarted. It's not that unpleasant of a feeling, really. So I'm trying to understand how "pessimism" (which to me is about a feeling of "That will never happen!") can be an improvement.

Can anyone shed some light on this?

Many thanks,

Ella

I think you are getting all tangled up in the mechanics of the process.

lifting vibration is about raising your point of attraction to a place where you will gain some reliefin the facet of your personality that is experiencing friction.

You are multifaceted in your exposure to this physical environment. We do all of our creating in the now moment so whatever your state of being is in that moment is where your point of attraction is transmitting out of.

TheEmotional Guidance offered to us from the non physical is always in the now. so how are you feeling now? how would you prefer to feel now? So, do you have any thoughts that could match that new feeling? when you find one , play with it until you feel the relief in the feeling it brings you and then allow that thought to attract others of similar vibration and repeat until a new vibrational set point is established in that aspect of your personality.

Everything you want is Downtsream.:beautiful:

Ella,

Good question. Try writing about pessimism. You may be suprised by what comes out. Sometimes I find very unexpected perspectives that help me experience a more positive vibration. In the end, though, the labels for these emotional set points are just labels and you may need to move up to the next one on the list (that hasn't happened to me yet).

I was listening to the Abraham special subjects CD while driving to North Carolina last Friday and Abraham very clearly explained (I'm paraphrasing here) that when you have repeated resistance on a topic or an "issue" it is in your best interests to go inside and work with that topic or "issue."

When you are experiencing a rogueblip of resistance, however,it is not necessary to do inside work; you can just vibrate yourself back into a place of allowing.

As I've said in this thread, this process is for those areas where I am experiencing repeated resistance. I found that I needed a "process" to go inside and correct long-standing issues of resistance (around money especially). If you are like me, I encourage you to work this process methodically and mechanically - see for yourself if it works.

I know this - slapping on smiley faces sure didn't work for me!

::LOL

Greg

Greg, thank you again!

What's interesting is that yesterday, "pessimism" seemed very confusing and odd to me. And yet today - I went to bed with the intention to be more clear on moving through this old, "stuck" thing - it somehow makes sense! Not only am I feeling my pessimism honestly, I'm suddenly realizing that maybe why I was stuck on this issue was that for a long time, I would "recoil" from this pessimistic feeling, and try to leap up to hopefulness instead of moving *through* it.

I look forward to exploring your process more.

Love,

Ella

Greg,

I appreciate what you are sharing with us so much! I knew the moment i started reading this thread that this process is exactly the right thing for me to do right now. Last night i wrote and wrote and wrote about money. When i was done i checked the EGS to see where i was at. As others have mentioned, the scale confuses me, the emotions don't seem to be listed in the right order. I didn't feel too bad writing about money, I don't really feel that bad about money, i just feel like i'm really stuck on this subject, so I feela little frustrated but i kept using the words INSECURITY, GUILT AND UNWORTHINESS, which was a huge eye-opener for me. I was so surprised to see that i was almost at the bottom of the scale! The next emotion up is JEALOUSY. Jealousy doesn't seem that negative to me. To me, WORRY feels much worse than some of these other emotions.

HERE'S WHAT I THINK IS GOING ON: I think that I don't allow myself to feel anything below ANGER, that's why those lower emotions don't FEEL bad to me -- I DON'T LET MYSELF FEEL THEM. Whereas I am comfortable feeling frustration, overwhelment, doubt and worry, I allow myself to feel them, so they feel really intense.

So when I feel like I am skipping around the emotional scale on a topic, maybe I am just putting a happy face sticker over the ones I don't allow myself to feel.

I'm going to really wallow in the idea of feeling insecure about having enough money, guilty about having it and not being generous enough with it, and unworthy of earning a lot of it. MAYBE I WILL REALLY START TO FEEL THOSE WORDS AND FINALLY GET PAST THEM.

I am both excited andscared togo there!

I wanted to add a wee update on how I've been working with this. I found it perplexing, as noted above, to shift into "pessimism" as a better feeling than "frustration", but as I played with it, my feeling has been that "frustration" is a sharper feeling, and that "pessimism" is a more muted, generalized one. It's hard to explain in words, but after a day or two at pessimism, I started to feel like I was getting the difference - like Christy, I think I have tended to be so uncomfortable with pessimism that I'd turn around and go back and often not make it past that stage.

So here I've been, floating in pessimism, as non-judgmentally as I could, reminding myself of things like "This is just where you are right now. This is just an indicator of your vibration. You don't have to stay here for long. Just feel how it feels and let it go." and yesterday, I felt like I was shifting into a sort of low-grade contentment.

But - and here's where it gets interesting to me! Today, I found myself having a few moments of pessimism and gloom, and for a little while I found myself thinking thoughts like "Oh, well. THAT didn't work! Might as well give up! Pointless! Maybe I'll never get this whole thing!"

!!!

When I realized that I was doing that, I thought to myself: this is That Thing You Do, isn't it? All that's going on is that I am at the upper range of "pessimism", so while I have access to some thoughts about contentment, it's also still pretty easy for me to dip into mildly glum thoughts. And I can just hang out here for a little while and then shift fully into contentment.

I am the kind of person who really likes INSTRUCTIONS for doing Abeish work, I have to say. When people make helpful suggestions that are extremely general, it doesn't do much for me. So this process seems to be working well for my brain! I saw a download on the abraham appreciators site that had you visualize your vibrational set-point as a wee ball bouncing back and forth between the two nearest levels. I'm finding that a really helpful way to think of it: for instance, where I am right now, with some feelings of comfort and some feelings of pessimism, that's just because I'm not fully away from vibrational access to glumness. That's all. No need to wail and gnash my teeth.

Phew! :)

I hope to check back in soon with glorious news about how obnoxiously cheerful I am on this subject, hehehehe.

1. Anytime you’re contacting the institution, whether via forms you’re mailing in or a telephone call you’re making, think, “This is going to be a great opportunity for this person to do the things they’re really good at and the things they want to do. This person has been waiting for an opportunity to help a deserving person like me – waiting for just this kind of an opportunity to make a difference in a deserving person’s life!”

:beautiful:

Think those sentences any time you find yourself wondering (or worrying) about what the answer to your requests is going to be! Repeat it over and over until it becomes your expectation when you think about your lending institutions.

2. Write thank you letters, in advance, to the person, or people, with whom you’re working. As soon as you know a name, sit down and pre-write that person a detailed thank you letter, thanking them for the exact outcome you desire. Go into detail about how they’ve helped a truly deserving individual (you!) who will not be wasting the precious second chance they’ve been given! Address this letter and sign it; it is a real letter that you’re simply not sending YET!

This is an important process in creating an expectation for a certain outcome. It forces you to walk through all the “they’ll never do this for me” fears. Remember: those fears are only a belief! Just a simple belief! You can just as easily believe, “they’ll do this for me”!

I’ve been amazed at how many of my letters, when I go back and read them, were 100% prophetic. Nostradamus eat your heart out!

::whistle

3. Once you’ve taken the action necessary and you’ve performed your process techniques as described here, forget about it! Go on and live your life as if you have no problem! Because you don’t!

In fact, take it a step further. Conjure exactly how it will feel to have this debt gone. Revel in the security, the safety, the elation, and the freedom! Then, once you’ve held those wonderful feelings in your heart, make a decision to feel that way right now. All the time!

::shooting

Live your life as if you’re already free of the debt. Because you are! Literally (think about that one for a while::thumb).

Hi Greg,
I just wanted you to know how helpful the above was for me. I've been going through some serious growing pains with my business and am in the process of securing cashflow to get me to the next level. It has come down to the wire and if certain people and institutions don't come through for me, it will jeoprodize 8 years of hard work. I applied your process of writing thank you letters as if I had already secured the financing. With in 10 hours I am happy to say I was actually able to send out one of the thank you letters I had written that morning. I'm hoping to send out the other one on Monday or Tuesday, once I get the good news.
I can't tell you how much your blog and this thread means to me. I can relate to so many things that you described in your experience. I have worked my butt off for 8 years and have realized that through out this entire time I wasgoing about it with feelings of fear, guilt,who am I to attempt to make lots of $ ,etc... Seriously, every time the phone rang, I would cringe hoping it wasn't an unsatisfied client. Silly me, at the beginning it was mostly happy clients calling to reorder, but over time I was attracting more and more unhappy clients.I lovedmy work but dreaded looking at my bank statements. I sent out so many mixed signals to the universe and received mixed success back. I thought by stressing I was being 'realistic' about things. I know better now and am excited to apply all that I've learntto this upcomingyear.
My big eye opener yesterday was on embracing contrast instead of fearing it. But that's a whole other thread.
The other thing I realized is that I've been eagerly reading all of the Hicks' books and listening to the teachings, but I wasn't taking the time to honestly sit down and do the work to changemy limiting beliefs.
Your detailed description about your issues with 'manifesting money through your website' is an amazing process and I'm eager to use it for raising my vibration on certain things. Everything you've written on this thread I've devoured and I will mostdefinately be purchasing your book when it comes out.::thumb

Wow! I love reading this thread! And it's time for me to post again about applying my process to "earning moremoney from my website". (And I have been inspired to start calling it"earning" rather than "making" or "having" - more on that in a later post)

Where I am on this topic: I've taken a couple weeks to meditateon "belief and positive expectation" regarding "earning more money from my website".The move from"optimism" to "belief and postive expectation" is not one I am taking lightly. I am just about ready to start writing about "earning more money from my website" from the perspective of "belief and positive expectation".

Feels like Iwill write about it today, as a matter of fact. Because the egg is hatching, so to speak. My perspective has grown and I'm in a new place ofvibration.

I filled out my ledger for December yesterday. I am accustomed to earning approximately $430/month from my website. (I'm refering to the website I have for my Father's business, not anything I've built for LOA teachings). In December, Iearned a little over $2,000.

::grapevine

All with my mind!

There are as many different universes as their are observers -applying myprocess to "earning more money from my website) is showing me that very clearly. I am utterly amazed at the different perspectives, energies, manifestations, and inspirations which occur at each level of vibration!

No wonder some people are happy and successful no matter what's "occuring" around them...those"occurances" aren't occuring around those people - just me! Except now I'm one of those people too!

::tramp

Things are bursting open all around me at this new point of vibration. Opportunities, options, ideas, time, energy, partnerships, etc are pouring out of me. Value, love, and appreciation are pouring out of me. And the coolest thing is that, although I can point to lots of specific actions I'm taking, I know I'm doing this all with my mind!

And you can too!

I'm working on a new website right now that will take my LOA blog and my LOA lens and put them into hyperdrive. It is so much fun!

To the God in You,

Greg

I want to express again that I so very appreciate this thread
and the genius information that you have shared w/ us, Greg!

I re-read the thread last night and I especially liked this line...
"Remember that everyone else in the world is really only you in a different package. And, in turn, you are the same thing as everyone else in the world – just in your own unique package. So if you desire more customers (or desire debt forgiveness as I did), all you’re seeking is for you to give yourself money (or for you to forgive yourself of debt, as the case may be)."
I had such an "Ah-HA!" moment reading that!

Anyway, I felt inspired to do the process again. (I sort of got discouraged the first time I attempted it :?) My most challenging and most important issue in my life would fall into the "And other things" category. Parenting. (sigh)
After I wrote about my feelings concerning this, I determined that I was at Frustration/Impatience/Irritation on the EGS. (Man, was that a hard one to swallow. Gulp.) I soon realized that I have been slapping smilies over how I really feel in my daily interaction w/ my daughters. Sure I've had my really, really JOYfilled days but my emotional setpoint is actually lower on the scale. OK, so I am where I am and I'm ready to make the journey up the scale to get to where I really want to be... Joyfully free and loving to my children. Next stop, Pessimism. Ahhhh. I'm already feeling some relief.
Oh and another thing... After I did the process, I decided wouldn't it be fun to pick a card out of the Ask & It Is Given deck. Without looking, here's the card that I chose:

"First, I Reach for Joy, and All Else Follows"

"Once you consciously identify your current state of emotion, it becomes easier for you to understand whether you are choosing thoughts that move you closer to your desired destination or farther from your desired destination. If you will make the improved feeling or emotion your real destination, then anything and everything that you want will quicky follow."

Happy emotional journeys up the scale, everyone!

Thank you Greg that is so inspirational. I seem to have such resistance to attracting the right mate for me, I sometimes nearly lose faith in the Abe approach, I can dip into feeling the Universe has foresaken me on this one even though I have seen wonderful manifestations in other areas. I am going to try your process on this, it feels so right. Well done for such wonderful manifestations in your finances.

Hi Greg,

I am just loving this thread but I have one little question. Can you pick several things you are really low about to write about (perhaps in seperate sessions) or do you just pick the most important thing right now, try to work on that, and then tackle the rest later?

For example, if you had "money" issues and "relationship" issues would it be best to pick the one that is the most pending/bothersome and work from there?

Thanks! ::hugging

Namaste1 - Great question .. had been thinking of asking that question myself! ::thumb

Greg, you may not think this is advisable, and I totally understand why it's so important to feel the feelings and move up slowly, but inspired by this past and having 30 minutes in the bath this morning ...

I brought with me the emotional guidance scale and within 30 minutes, talked myself up from fear to contentment .. and it was a very beautiful experience!

What was interesting was that ifyou had asked me before,I would have placed myself somewhere around boredom, when it came to 'Me and Money' .. but when doing the mini version of this exercise, I was surprised that I could get in touch with a lot feelings around fear, guilt, anger, jealousy etc. so, I will call what I did a taster session .. and will definitely be doing your version of it.

So, my suggestion to all,is to work right from the bottom of the scale, because it could be that you (well this was true for me) have pushed away or ignored some deeper feelings .. feelings that mayhave felt too painful to look at.

And like Abraham says, it's better to find relief, from emotion to emotion, than to try and jump too high too soon.

Greg, this is such an amazing thread! A question that I have for you:

If you were to outline the perfect manifesting day for your self, what would it look like? You mentioned the "Ah" meditation and thank you notes, but in what order do you do all this? Do you do all of the processes in the morning and then spend the rest of the day focusing on things that make you feel good? Even the things that have nothing to do with money?

Thanks for the clear up. I want to incorporate this process into my morning ritual. Gonna have to wake up an hour earlier if I keep finding so much great info on this site!

Again, thank you Greg for clarifyingAbraham's moving-up-the-emotional-scale proccess for me. Yes your added description was fantastic.

I intend to use this proccess to earn money trading on-line. I feel so excited. If this improves my trading then I can help other traders too.

Abraham has described the stock market as a game of alignment. It is really fun and interesting (when I am making money) to notice how I am feeling andthe instant results I am manifesting each night because I am trading live.

When I first started learning to trade I was so excited that even when I made mistakes I still made money. When I am"locked on"I am inspired to take the profitable trades, I get filled andmake money.

When I am "locked off" I'll miss trades ( right when you get up to make a cup of tea!), take losing trades or don't get filled on profitalbe trades.

Sometimes I have a happy sticker on and I think to myself, yeah I'm "locked on" tonight, it's going to be a good night to trade.

But results don't lie. My losing night is my reality check to ask myself how was I really feeling. That is when I notice doubt or worry.

So I asked the Universe forone simpleproccess I can use to raise my vibration so that when I trade, I can let it in.

And once I had used the proccess successfully myself, I wanted to use it to coach fellow traders to be suceessful.

Thank you Greg, and Thank you Universe for leading me to this thread! Ask and it is given!! ::nod

OMG, Greg! This process is so AMAZING!

I've only been applying the process to my challenge of Parenting for the past two days (and only moving up two notches on the EGS from Frustration/Impatience/Irritation to Boredom).
Already I've noticed some progress! Yippeeee!
I was observing something this morning that my children had done... Two days ago, I would have felt VERY irritated by what I was looking at but I actually wasn't bothered by it! When I realized what I was feeling, (a feeling of indifference) I was absolutely amazed. The outer conditions hadn't changed but my perspective had! What freedom!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! You Rock!

I love this thread soooo much! aniheart

I appreciate Greg and everyone else's input enormously. :allgood

I am just about to start in a BIG way to follow Greg's process and I am full of expectation and excitement.

I decided to cut and paste all Greg's posts, including what I felt most useful .. everything Greg has said up until this moment ..to print off as a something for me to read several times over before proceeding.

I love clarity! ::devil

So, in the next post on this thread is what I have accumulated in terms of Greg's postings to us. So, it's going to be LONG .. so ignore it if you've already grabbed all the key points .. and if you've only just arrived at this thread, it may make wonderful, concentrated reading for you.

Hope that's OK by Greg and the Moderators.

If not, let me know.

This is a summary of Greg's posts to us so far:


My Process of Manifesting Money (and Other Things Too)
From: http://theabeforum.com/forum2/2011-1.html (http://theabeforum.com/forum2/2011-1.html)
How did that happen? There are many things I do every day - things that you, my IB, and Abraham have taught me. But there is one specific procedure I did, regarding money, that poured rocket fuel into my vibrational escrow.

Perhaps others have used the process I'll describe here; it really is very simple. I am currently using this process, by the way, on other areas of my life...other specific topics. It has worked so unbelievably well with the specific topic of "Greg and money" that I am really enjoying seeing what it will do in these other areas. (Rest assured, I will post about them!)

How well has this process worked? Within the last two and a half month period I've manifested (or allowed) almost $150,000!!!! (in addition to the additional manifestations I mentioned at the beginning of this post, which will double this amount)

Here's what I did/do:

I give myself an honest assessment regarding how I feel about a topic (for example, "money"). Where is my current emotional set point? And I mean where is it REALLY? Not where would I like it to be. I actually "tell it like it is" (I know, I know...those are four-letter-words to us normally!)

So far I've been addressing topics that I haven't been manifesting in accordance with my desires, so I've obviously been finding myself very low on the emotional scale. For example, when I started this exercise with "money" I found myself at the low emotional set point of "worry". And, obviously, this low emotional set point is the culprit regarding why my source energy has been blocked regarding this particular topic.

After I truly identify my current, tell-it-like-it-is, emotional set point, I write about that set point. I roll around in that set point like a dog on a dead animal! I embrace that set point, pain and all, with full-on honesty. No justification! No rationalization! No wishful thinking!

Then I identify the next spot up the emotional guidance scale. Just one spot up! And I begin to think of the topic within the terms of that next highest spot on the scale.

And the next day, I do the same writing process with that next highest spot. (If it takes me more than one day to think of my topic in the vein of the next highest emotional set point, that's okay)

One rule has served me very well - never go up the emotional guidance scale more than one spot per day.

What I've found is that within the course of a few days (or weeks), I have moved up to the highest spots on the emotional guidance scale in regards to the topic on which I've focused. And then I'm flying and I stay there! And the new emotional set point is very real. So much more real, for me, than all the pretending, wishing, hoping, self-convincing, and fake-it-until-I-make-it that I did before!!!! I'm really there! I'm San Diego!
...........

1. The uncomfortability of "where-I'm-at". Good point. It is very uncomfortable! Why? Any time there is a gap between my emotional set point and my desire, there will be discomfort/pain. That is why I don't use this process on things about which I feel no discomfort. And, if I feel discomfort, it follows that there must be a gap between my emotional set point and my desire. And, for me, if I don't get honest about where I really am, I cannot move up the emotional scale; I cannot move up to better feelings.

It's like the old saying, "Until we agree to suffer, there will be no end to the suffering."

I know this sounds upstream. But, remember, I am only using this process on topics about which I'm feeling pain, feeling discomfort, and/or not manifesting like I want. So, in every case, there is obviously already a gap between vibration and desire.

We've been conditioned by society to dampen our desires as a way to ease the pain. That doesn't work!!!!! That's playing small!!!! The only thing that really works to ease the pain is to raise our vibrations to the levels of our desire! And this is the process that allows me to really raise my vibrations - not slap band-aids on them!

2. Feeling snippets of higher emotional set points amid the lower set points. Yes! When I am writing about my lower set point, I often feel flashes of hope and other better feelings. That is natural because I have been retraining my mind for a while now and I am getting used to "taking control" of my thoughts and finding/focusing on the better feeling thought!

Once again...bear in mind that I am only using this process on a topic that causes discomfort/pain/lack of manifestation. Obviously, my "real", most constant, and steady vibration on this topic is not the better feeling thought (even though I am fully able to access the better feeling thought) or I wouldn't be needing to focus on this topic in the first place!!!

So I don't discount the better feeling thoughts. I just write about the current lower emotional set point (and the next highest one on the next day, and so on, and so on...)

And I don't go around all day dwelling on "worry" (or whatever the problematic emotional set point is) either. I am cognisant of the "worry" and I rephrase the specific topic in terms of the next highest emotional set point, but I don't make those feelings my dominant focus for the day. But, once again, if "worry" is truly where I am on a specific topic about which I feel pain/discomfort/lack of manifesting (and if I'm feeling discomfort than there must be a gap between vibration and desire, right?) than I was carrying "worry" around with me all day anyway! Make sense?
....................
1. The money came, yesterday, in the form of forgiven debt. Literally, we owed a bank a loan and the bank said, "You don't have to pay it back. We'll write it off and you owe us nothing."

(As an aside, an attorney who has been involved with this process just about fell out of his chair, saying, "Why in the hell would they do that for you???!!!!" When he said that, I had an initial flash of extreme fear, "Oh shit! He's right! The banks won't really do this for me!!!" Then I quickly relaxed and, remembering that the universe will move people and mountains to fulfill my desires, decided to use his reaction as an affirmation of how absolutely powerful and ironclad is the promise that we cannot have a desire that the universe will not fulfill! We are the ones who dream small and play small - the universe doesn't know the difference between finding a penny on the sidewalk versus a bank saying, "Greg, you don't owe us this huge loan anymore...you don't need to go bankrupt...I tell 'ya what, instead of going bankrupt, why don't you just forget about this huge loan for which we have your liability lock, stock, and barrel?" Too much!)

2. The "levels of emotional vibration"? Sorry. I tried to be consistant with the vernacular of my posts. I am always refering to the emotional guidance scale from Chapter 22 of Ask and It Is Given. So, for example, if I was at "Disappointment" (number 12) on a certain topic, then I would focus on moving to "Overwhelment" (number 11) next. Just follow the scale up.
...............
Just as Abraham promises, I've found that I start feeling better the moment I move just one tick up the emotional guidance scale! Abraham is right!!! "Worry" does feel better than "Blame"!! Is "Worry" where I want to be, in the long run? Heck no!! But I notice immediate relief from just one tick up the scale.

And I also notice that I start to see exciting, new manifestations as I move up the scale. With each movement in a better-feeling direction, I begin to manifest and allow a little more out of my vibrational escrow - regarding that specific topic! It feels a bit like slowly opening the top of a treasure chest! (I.E. Of course "Worry" doesn't allow as much from my vibrational escrow as "Passion" will!!! But "Worry" does allow more out of my vibrational escrow than "Blame" did!!)

The manifestations start to feel like a steady, powerful flow somewhere around "Hopefulness" and "Optimism"! So, depending on where you start on the emotional guidance scale, a steady flow of manifestation may only be a week or two away!! Just keep being honest and keep writing...that's all I do!!! The universe takes care of the rest!!
............................
This process I use and have begun to describe in this thread replaces my old process of "slapping a smiley face" on certain topics. It replaces the "if I never look in that closet, the mess doesn't really exist" paradigm!!!

I've never encountered any bad feelings, using this process, that I'm not already dealing with everyday anyway - no matter how "stuffed", denied, and glossed-over they might be!!!
.........................
Let me clarify: I'm only using this process on issues which are causing me pain and ones where I am having obvious, long-term difficulty manifesting within.

For example: this process took my family from sure bankruptcy to a release from litigation, debt forgiveness, and financial excess within a two month period. And, as amazing as that might sound, I'm trying not to overhype what has happened to us finanically since I employed this process. What is actually happening is much, much grander!!!

I don't use this process when I am having a bad day, feeling low energy, or feeling down. And, certainly, for instances like those, it would usually be silly to work my way up the emotional guidance scale, one emotion at a time.

No, the topics I use these techniques on are ones where a large gap exists between my vibration and my desire. And for such topics I've found it very helpful to advance slowly and thoughtfully. Why? Because I've usually invested a great deal of time and energy, previously, slapping band-aids on the topic in an effort to cover-up and make myself feel better. Never really looking at it honestly.

If I had been looking at it honestly, I undoubtedly wouldn't be feeling the big gap, the pain of the distance between my low vibration and my high desire!

For less "serious" issues/topics I am very often able to jump right up to joy with a healthy pivot. Often listening to an Abe recording or a great, high-vibration song will be enough to pivot me out of my "pothole." I don't take the time to stop at each emotional set point for those types of issues/topics.
......................
I want to reiterate that just one move up the emotional guidance scale, for a long-term bugaboo (like "money", "self worth", "relationships", etc.), brings relief and new manifestations appearing out of escrow!!! I'm not that high up the scale yet, but I'm higher up the scale than I was five days ago. And I'm noticing some cool stuff moving out of escrow to me!

The analogy I'm about to give is verified by science. One doesn't have to be into Abe to know this:

We are like pianos. When you strike a key on a piano, it causes a hammer to fall on a chord and a specific note is created. The note is created by the vibration of the chord you have struck by hitting the key.

Our thoughts are like the keys on a piano. We are creating "notes", every second of every day, through the vibrations of our thoughts. And, in our universe, like attracts like.

I like to think of bad-feeling thoughts as the deep, bass keys on my "piano" and the good-feeling thoughts as the higher keys on my "piano." And my every thought strikes a "chord", sending a vibration out into the universe and creating my reality.

The practice of moving up the emotional guidance scale, one emotion at a time, is just like moving up the scale on a piano keyboard one key at a time. Before too long, you're "playing" only the good-feeling "notes" on your "piano."

And you'd better be ready to duck as your desires come flying at you, out of escrow!!!
................................
I have experienced a lot of contrast this weekend. My wife and youngest son visited from North Carolina. I viewed this weekend as a chance to see how I was manifesting in relation to my desires surrounding self-worth. I experienced some amazing highs and some deflating lows.

Which, actually, is just about right. Concerning "self worth", I'm currently at the emotional set point of "boredom" (using my process I've described in this thread). I perceive "boredom" as a place of in-between vibration. Not great/not terrible. Not quite yet ready to quit playing small, but also not quite ready to start playing big. Lots of courage mixed with ample fear.

And that's pretty much what got reflected back to me. I'm going to keep writing on self-worth, because "boredom" is not where I want to stay long-term. But, for me, self-worth is a deep-seated belief system so I'm proceeding slowly and deliberately. Carefully! No slapping smiley faces over empty gas gauges!!!

Regarding money - I must report that I still rock!!! I rock. I rock. I rock. Thank you universe! 'Cause I love money and money loves me!
Over the course of the last few days I've had $600 arrive in the mail. I've had a credit card bill be "mysteriously" $450 less than I expected. And I've had a bank tell me I don't have to repay over $126,000 in loans!!!! (My attorney said to me today, "Greg, I have no idea why {this bank} is being so good to you!" But I knew!!! Because that's where I'm vibrating concerning money!!!!

Back to self worth for a moment - there is another thread where someone posted a passage from an Abraham workshop. Abraham said that self love is not about finding love flowing to us. It's about finding a way to let love flow through us from source. When love from source is flowing through us (to other people, places, and things) then we really experience what we really are. Love. And that is self love.

That meant a lot to me and I've been focusing on it today rather than feeling mad, sad, sorry for myself, or hurt.
...............................
It's been a while since I've posted (I've missed you, you beautiful creators!)

I want to keep this energy river flowing! I'm getting close to wrapping up some more debt and I want to post an update of my money manifestation process.

Since August, I have now paid off $21,575 in debt (using cold hard cash that I simply allowed to manifest)! And, since August, I have allowed banks to forgive $540,272 of debt (two attorneys have told me how unbelievable this is...but nothing is unbelievable unless I choose it to be so. And I ain't choosing to "unbelieve"!!!!).

Allowing these manifestations has taken a lot of energy and focus. In the process, I've learned to meditate much more deeply and more effectively! Actually, regarding "what I've learned", there is too much to post! I need to write a book!

Thank you universe, of which I am a part!!! Thank you universe, of which I am a worthy co-creator!!! I have so much love, money, joy, companionship, friendship, efficacy, and purpose!!! I have more than enough to fill my heart's desires!!!
.......................
Meditation? I'm no expert. Here's what works for me:

1. Sitting/resting meditation - I sit cross-legged and touch my thumb to my middle finger on each hand. I picture a large movie screen with the words "Our" and "Father" on the screen bigger than life. Then I focus on the blank space between "Our" and "Father."

All the while I chant "Ahhhhhh" (the name of God) and imagine good feelings flowing up from my groin to my head/face. Feelings like love, freedom, and abunance.

When thoughts come I do my best to let them float away.

On most days, I am able to spend a few moments without ANY problem thoughts. It is a state of no resistance and it is beautiful.

(A shout-out to Wayne Dyer for most of this)

2. Living meditation - during the day, when I feel resistance I mentally step back and say, "Oh, I'm resisting. How curious; that is interesting. What am I resisting? I don't have to do that." And the acceptance of my resistance (rather than trying to fight it) usually released it and I jump right back into the stream of source energy.

(A shout out to Lynn Grabhorne and Doreen Banaszak for this)

November has followed suite as a month of tremendous allowing for money manifestation. I'm still waiting to hear final word on our last two pieces of big debt, but my desire is for the banks to forgive those two as they've done the rest.

I've paid off almost $30,000 in debt this month! So far! And had another $10,000-plus of debt forgiven. Where does the money come from? You know the answer...I am allowing the universe to share it with me.

Case in point: an albatross of a property was finally sold this month. The buyer paid cash and is rehabbing it. There were some snags on my end, which delayed the sale for a couple of weeks. The buyer became increasing agitated, for various reasons, and called my realtor on two occasions demanding reductions in his purchase price. Both times we gave him reductions - amounting to total discounts well over $3,000.

I never stressed on the loss of money. And I never focused on it. I just said, "Thank you, God. Thank you, Universe."

At the closing last week, the buyer showed up and paid us the full purchase price! There was no mention of any of the discounts and no anger on his part. Believe me, this buyer is an experienced, old-hand at what he does...he didn't "just forget" to give us $3,500 less for the property. I have NO explaination for this other than the explaination I have for finding money on the ground. Thank you, Universe!

I've been writing about my beliefs using Lynn Grabhorn's "Playbook" and going through the exercises diligently. It's been making a huge difference (improvement) in my daily experiences. My beliefs about some things just don't serve me, I'm finding.

For example, after writing about it I realized that I believed that "I need to be punished for my mistakes." Also that "I must EARN and DESERVE good things." Now...there is nothing inherently wrong with those two beliefs - I am free to believe them if I want.

But guess what? I don't want to believe them any more because they act as resistance to the flow of source energy and all good things. So I continue to play a game of "imagine if those things I believe aren't true."

Imagination is so wonderful and so powerful - our thoughts are real! Over time I can feel my new beliefs taking shape and the old beliefs atrophying!

I love this life. I love you. Thank you for reading this and making my experiences even more real and wonderful!
................
November is coming to a close this week. Although its not over yet, the month of November has seen me repay over $27,000 worth of debt.

And, separate from that $27,000, the tally for loans I've gotten banks to forgive now stands at close to $700,000 (since August). In fact, I have just one more loan I'm waiting to hear a "yes" on and they'll all have been forgiven.

I have been doing a lot of steady, daily writing using Lynn Grabhorn's "Excuse Me...Your Life is Waiting Workbook." If you don't have this book, I highly recommend it.

Just this month, I have been inspired to take action with my writing. I've recently pumped out a lot of content for my dad's website (he is a retired psychiatrist who now speaks and writes about the powerful natural medicine of humor), including three articles which describe why humor can be rocket fuel for those using the law of attraction.

I've also started a lens on Squidoo called "Manifesting Abundance", about the science of the law of attraction. I am a science geek and I love writing about how quantum physics explains exactly why and how we are able to manifest abundance.

In addition, I've started a blog called "Manifesting Abundance", chronicling both my experiences with the law of attraction (since I became fully introduced to it through Abraham this summer) and the science of manifesting abundance.

Most of my post-authoring energy is being used on these three inspired action-items. But I will continue to post about this journey of financial manifestation. Of particular focus for me will be manifesting website traffic to my dad's website, my blog, and my lens (and, eventually, my own website); book sales; and affiliate sales.

In other words, I'm going to use the same principles and exercises that allowed me to manifest $700,000 in forgiven bank loans (so far) and almost $60,000 in debt paid off (so far) with cold, hard cash since August, on sales and "income." All that repayment was done with no increase in family income - in fact, if you remember, our family income has dropped because of my wife's internship.
::surfer

So I'll be letting you know how the sales and income go (in addition to continuing to report about the forgiven loans and paid off debt). I've taken a lot of inspired action and I will continue.

But I expect that everything will really start taking off when I start doing the familiar exercises I've described in this thread (such as moving up the emotional scale, pre-writing thank you letters, the placemat process, etc.).
....................
Many wonderful Abers have been curious about my debt-forgiveness process.

To date, I have gotten banks to forgive over $700,000. As in, “You don’t owe us a dime, Greg.” I’ve had two attorneys in the last couple months look at me with their mouths agape, saying, “How in the hell did you get them to agree to that? Why would they do that for you?”

Bear in mind, our feelings are so much more important than our actions. How you feel about something will always, always, always trump how you act. Even if you take the greatest action in the world, it cannot overcome your feelings about it.

That said: the action for this process is easy. Simply call the lending institution and ask. Every entity which lends money has to deal with default; all these companies have divisions which work with borrowers in, or nearing, default.

Be honest with them. Of course present the facts in a way that works in your favor, but do not lie.

They will have forms for you to fill out. Fill them out promptly, attach a detailed letter explaining your circumstances, and mail them back the next day.

Give them a week and a half. If you haven’t heard from them, call them back. If you can’t speak with the individual reviewing your case, try to get the name of that person. Begin building a relationship with this person – leave polite, business-like messages and always do what you say you’re going to do, when you say you’re going to do it.

If dealing directly with the lending institution doesn’t go anywhere, you may feel inspired to search for, and contact, legitimate organizations that work with borrowers in, or nearing, default. Professional assistance can, at times, be invaluable.

Now - how you feel while you perform the actions I’ve described is the important part! Here are some things I do to make sure I’m “feeling it” instead of worrying, being afraid, saying, “They’ll never do this for me!”, doubting, and/or focusing on what I don’t have:

1. Anytime you’re contacting the institution, whether via forms you’re mailing in or a telephone call you’re making, think, “This is going to be a great opportunity for this person to do the things they’re really good at and the things they want to do. This person has been waiting for an opportunity to help a deserving person like me – waiting for just this kind of an opportunity to make a difference in a deserving person’s life!”

Think those sentences any time you find yourself wondering (or worrying) about what the answer to your requests is going to be! Repeat it over and over until it becomes your expectation when you think about your lending institutions.

2. Write thank you letters, in advance, to the person, or people, with whom you’re working. As soon as you know a name, sit down and pre-write that person a detailed thank you letter, thanking them for the exact outcome you desire. Go into detail about how they’ve helped a truly deserving individual (you!) who will not be wasting the precious second chance they’ve been given! Address this letter and sign it; it is a real letter that you’re simply not sending YET!

This is an important process in creating an expectation for a certain outcome. It forces you to walk through all the “they’ll never do this for me” fears. Remember: those fears are only a belief! Just a simple belief! You can just as easily believe, “they’ll do this for me”!

I’ve been amazed at how many of my letters, when I go back and read them, were 100% prophetic. Nostradamus eat your heart out!

3. Once you’ve taken the action necessary and you’ve performed your process techniques as described here, forget about it! Go on and live your life as if you have no problem! Because you don’t!

In fact, take it a step further. Conjure exactly how it will feel to have this debt gone. Revel in the security, the safety, the elation, and the freedom! Then, once you’ve held those wonderful feelings in your heart, make a decision to feel that way right now. All the time!
Live your life as if you’re already free of the debt. Because you are! Literally (think about that one for a while).
...................
This morning I was balancing out November's register and updating my debt repayment schedule.

I set a goal, back in September, to have a particular debt ($11,000) paid off by the end of 2007. As I updated my records, I saw that with a December payment of $1,900 I will have it paid off! As I updated my checking accounts, I looked for the $1,900 and opened myself up to finding it (as I have done so many times since I started these processes last August).

I knew it would be there, yet I only found $900.

But that didn't bother me at all! I knew finding the additional $1,000 during the month would be child's play. After all, I've "found" over $60,000 in cold, hard cash since August. What trouble will the universe have coming up with the additional $1,000 I need to reach my goal of paying off this debt?

About 2:30, I got the mail. In the mail I found a check for $1,000! I just sat down and laughed, filled with satisfaction and gratitude.

Thank you universe!
.................
Today I sent the final payment to close out a $10,000 debt! And I only just started paying on it in October! When I crafted the note accompanying the last check today I wrote, "I hope this money blesses you and enriches your life. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share it with you."

Now I'm raising my vibrations and setting goals for book sales and website income in 2008.

I spent the first 40 years of my life thinking that my thoughts were reactions to my world. Funny. Good to know, now, that its the other way around!
.............
Here are two things I’ve learned as I’ve transitioned from deliberately attracting financial freedom (as you read about in this thread) to increasing my active, positive income.

Here’s the first thing:

Have you ever gone for a jog and finished dripping with sweat? Your jog was over, you leaned forward and grabbed your shorts to stretch and rest, and your sweat dripped off your forehead and hit the pavement.

You weren’t sweating so profusely because you leaned forward and grabbed your shorts were you? No, of course not. Your sweat was coming from the hearty exercise you were engaged in twenty minutes ago.

Your (then) current sweat represented the results of your previous exercise.

Your present physical reality is the same way. Whatever and whoever currently surrounds you is the culmination of your past beliefs and actions, not your current ones. Looking at your present reality as anything else is folly.

So do not make the mistake of defining yourself by what you see and experience when you look at your current circumstances. Your current circumstances have little to do with how you are deliberately attracting today. You will deliberately attract different things in the future based on today’s beliefs and actions.

That’s great news if you find yourself in an undesirable situation (like I was in) such as an unfulfilling relationship, an empty bank account, or a mountain of debt! Free yourself from the self-made prison of defining yourself by your present circumstances and surroundings.

Here’s the second thing:

Remember that everyone else in the world is really only you in a different package. And, in turn, you are the same thing as everyone else in the world – just in your own unique package. So if you desire more customers (or desire debt forgiveness as I did), all you’re seeking is for you to give yourself money (or for you to forgive yourself of debt, as the case may be).

Strange, huh? What the heck am I talking about?

The material world is a big quantum ocean of (mostly) hydrogen, oxygen, carbon, and nitrogen. From this ocean every single material person, place, or thing is manifested. But no matter how different two “things” may be, they are both just part of this big quantum ocean in which we exist.

Think of a warm spot in the Pacific Ocean. That warm spot remains even though billions of water molecules are passing through it each second, becoming part of the warm spot and then leaving it to become a different part of the Pacific. You are like a warm spot in the ocean.

It’s like Wayne Dyer has said: the ocean is God and you are a wave on that ocean. (And just as a wave is what the ocean is doing, he goes on to say, you are what God is “doing”)

There are billions and billions of warm spots in this quantum ocean. Each warm spot is a person, or a flower, or a candle, or a clock, or a dollar bill, etc. But all the warm spots are just a part of this quantum ocean – irrespective of how diverse they may be when compared to each other!

That puts a different perspective on desiring more customers doesn’t it? All you have to do is get yourself in a place where you know you deserve more love and more reflected value…from yourself! And you’ll soon be deliberately attracting lots more money – just as you desire.

And just as I am! I’ve raised my daily intake from my website from $12 a day to $14 a day in the past month. And counting. Simply by applying the same vibration raising process (I describe in this thread) to “making website sales” as I did/do to “financial freedom.”

Try it yourself! I’ll keep you posted on my progress…
...............
Here is the process:

1. I identify an issue or topic about which I am experiencing emotional pain. About which I am mired in a lower reality than my desires. Remember that all emotional pain is simply the distance between your vibration and your desires - the greater the distance the greater the pain.
2. I chose "making money from my website" as a topic to which I will apply this process. I have spent, literally, hundreds of hours working on one of my websites and, for over a year, I have been stuck at an income level lower than my desire for it. Hence, there is a gap between my vibration (what I am currently experiencing) and my desire ($100/day).

3. I take out a piece of paper and a pen and I write about my feelings regarding "making money from my website." I let myself freely flow anything that wants to come out and I write it down. I stick, however, to what I am REALLY feeling about it - NOT how I want to feel about it or how I think I "ought" to feel about it.

These feelings are not going to be positive. They do not feel good either. It takes courage to write about them honestly! Because they are no fun to think about and deal with!

But here's the thing: I am not writing down anything, no matter how negative, that I'm not already dealing with everyday on, at the very least, an unconscious level. In other words, writing about these bad feelings doesn' t make them real. They are already real - I'm just not in the habit of honestly looking them square in the face every day.

Let's get honest here - it's much more comfortable to slap a smiley face over the gas gauge then it is to go fill the gas tank! Of course we would never do that in real life because we couldn't get anywhere without gas in our car. But we do it all the time to ourselves - spiritually - when we slap smiley faces over our bad feelings.

So with this initial writing, I officially declare - no more smiley faces on "making money from my website"! I don't feel good about it! I hate that I'm not making more money! It sucks to feel this unworthy!

4. After "vomiting" my real, honest, current feelings about "making money from my website" on my page, I look on the emotional guidance scale and identify where I am. In my case I see that my writing aligns my most closely with "worry" because I am worried that I'm never going to see more income from all my effort. I'm worried that all my effort has been wasted. I'm worried that I don't deserve more money from my website.

5. At this point, I write "Tomorrow - doubt" at the bottom of the writing I just did. Because "doubt" is the next highest emotion on the emotional guidance scale. And then I start thinking about "making money from my website" from the perspective of "doubt". I meditate about it, and I let it ruminate in my mind.

6. The next day, I sit down and write about "making money from my website" from the perspective of doubt. I give myself permission to really feel "doubt" about making money from my website. I roll around in it. I set up camp in "doubt" and write about it and write about it and write about it.

What I find is that, with that much effort and attention, I am able to really make an actual transition from "worry" to "doubt" regarding "making money with my website". First of all, it's not that big of a leap. It's a realistic up-tick of emotional perspective; it feels real and genuine because it's a slight improvement...NOT a smiley face slapped over an empty gas gauge!

Sometimes it takes a couple days to really embrace and "be" the next highest emotion. And that's fine. It takes as long as it takes - but I don't procrastinate on the process intentionally.

7. I move only one emotion up the scale at a time. One day at a time. Any faster becomes "slapping a smiley face".

As I move up the scale, I notice that what I'm manifesting improves dramatically - sometimes with only one tick up! That's because I'm vibrating (and, thus, attracting) differently even with only one tick up the scale.

I also notice that my perspectives change as I move up the scale. What I thought I would be thinking about and writing about often turns out very differently in real practice. For example, I started writing about "making more money from my website" thinking about people making clicks and purchases.

Now, ten spots up the emotional guidance scale, I'm no longer focused on that at all. Instead I've transitioned, in a very natural progression, into focusing on delivering greater value (and impuning greater value into the work I've already done). I now understand that delivering value is what it's all about (and feeling that what I'm doing has great value).

If I'm delivering great value the universe will reflect that back to me. I don't have to sweat how that will happen, it's the law! And it's already happening. I'm seeing a couple more dollars per day already!
.....................
Try writing about pessimism. You may be suprised by what comes out. Sometimes I find very unexpected perspectives that help me experience a more positive vibration. In the end, though, the labels for these emotional set points are just labels and you may need to move up to the next one on the list (that hasn't happened to me yet).

I was listening to the Abraham special subjects CD while driving to North Carolina last Friday and Abraham very clearly explained (I'm paraphrasing here) that when you have repeated resistance on a topic or an "issue" it is in your best interests to go inside and work with that topic or "issue."

When you are experiencing a rogue blip of resistance, however, it is not necessary to do inside work; you can just vibrate yourself back into a place of allowing.

As I've said in this thread, this process is for those areas where I am experiencing repeated resistance. I found that I needed a "process" to go inside and correct long-standing issues of resistance (around money especially). If you are like me, I encourage you to work this process methodically and mechanically - see for yourself if it works.

I know this - slapping on smiley faces sure didn't work for me!
.............
I, too, have been one of those "Sydney-or-the-bush" emotional types. I wore either rose-colored glasses or shit-colored glasses - either it was fantastic or it sucked. And those two perspectives were almost always either not necessary or not real.

I still don't always trust those mid-range emotions, but I find them more realistic and accessible, as I climb the emotional scale, than my old, fake quantum leap to joy.
..............
Where I am on this topic: I've taken a couple weeks to meditate on "belief and positive expectation" regarding "earning more money from my website". The move from "optimism" to "belief and positive expectation" is not one I am taking lightly. I am just about ready to start writing about "earning more money from my website" from the perspective of "belief and positive expectation".

Feels like I will write about it today, as a matter of fact. Because the egg is hatching, so to speak. My perspective has grown and I'm in a new place of vibration.

I filled out my ledger for December yesterday. I am accustomed to earning approximately $430/month from my website. (I'm refering to the website I have for my Father's business, not anything I've built for LOA teachings). In December, I earned a little over $2,000.

All with my mind!

There are as many different universes as their are observers - applying my process to "earning more money from my website) is showing me that very clearly. I am utterly amazed at the different perspectives, energies, manifestations, and inspirations which occur at each level of vibration!

No wonder some people are happy and successful no matter what's "occuring" around them...those "occurances" aren't occuring around those people - just me! Except now I'm one of those people too!

Things are bursting open all around me at this new point of vibration. Opportunities, options, ideas, time, energy, partnerships, etc are pouring out of me. Value, love, and appreciation are pouring out of me. And the coolest thing is that, although I can point to lots of specific actions I'm taking, I know I'm doing this all with my mind!

And you can too!
................Questions...answers.

Namaste - yes, I use this process on two different issues at the same time. I've never done it on more than two at once because it becomes confusing to differentiate the feelings. Two is reasonable and realistic for me as long as I keep the two items distinct and separate.

PinkStar - there is nothing wrong with quantum leaps. That's how a 100 pound woman is able to lift her car to free her trapped child! Think how long it would take her to slowly build the belief that she could lift a car if she did it over time in a gym!

But...quantum leaps are not good for long-term results when dealing with long and deeply held beliefs. And, remember, I am only using this process on issues with a long and deep history of not manifesting my desires. Issues where there is a significant gap between my vibration and my desire; if I were in a place of higher vibration with these issues I wouldn't need to do my process on them (because I'd already be manifesting my desires!)

Kizzy - I don't know what you're seeing, but you look beautiful to me! Which brings up the point that there are as many universes as there are observers. That is not mysticism - that is science. Want proof? Take your dog for a walk tonight and I'll bet she'll see, hear, and smell things that you can't!

As soon as you arrive at a new point of vibration you are, literally, seeing a different universe. That's because the physical universe is created (out of the quantum field) through your expectations. Once again, this is not mysticism but science. Want proof? Read about the double-slit experiment - the "only thing you need to know about quantum physics" according to Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman.

By the way...that quantum field I just mentioned? It is a measurable, photographical, non-local field that fills all the "space" between material objects. From that field, all physical matter is created. And the quantum field is pure, 100% potential! Potential to be anything and everything! The quantum field can produce a baby, a cow, a penny, a rock, or a butterfly, or anything in your imagination, easily and effortlessly.

Why am I mentioning this? The quantum field is what Abraham calls the "vibrational escrow". Vibrational escrow is real science, if you had any doubts about that put them aside. Vibrational escrow is just another term to describe the quantum field. Other terms for it? The universe, God, the field of infinite possibilities, Brahman, etc.

In fact, if you ask a theologian to describe the qualities of “God” and ask a physicist to describe the qualities of the “quantum field” they will both say the same things. Everywhere, infinite, omniscient, ever present, representing all possibilities, eternal, the source of all life, the unifying force of the universe, etc.

So, the perfect manifesting day? What I'm about to reveal is awesome. And it comes straight from my IB. The perfect manifesting day is a day spent in as much contact with God (or the quantum field) as possible.

If you want to manifest, you go to the source. You go to the field of all possibilities. You go to God (or the quantum field) - the source of you, of planets, of star systems, of nebulas, of galaxies, of everything!

Where do you find that source? Look "under your nose" and know that you are a part of that source. It is more than in you; the source is you.

Okay, so that's where you find the source, but how do you access the source?

The source is found between your thoughts.

The source is the originator of your thoughts. You always thought that your brain was thinking, right? Your brain is merely carrying out commands - commands give by the source. Commands given by the part of you that is infinite and eternal.

To "spend time with God" all you have to do is spend time between your thoughts. That moment of peace and stillness between your thoughts? That's God!

Spend time with God and you will get what you're looking for; God always answers, we're just not practiced listeners. We think we are our brain. We think we are our thoughts. We are obsessed with thinking and we think our physical body is the thinker.

God is the thinker. God is waiting for us in the stillness, the gap, between our thoughts. And that is where meditation can take you - to that gap. To God.

God is waiting for you to commune with God. To commune with yourself, really. Go there. Meditate, imagine the blank space between two words (such as "our" and "father"), and reside in that blank space. With practice that stillness, the gap, grows. And you can go there all the time. And then miracles happen.

But you want to know a secret? You don't have to wait; miracles are happening RIGHT NOW! For you! Appreciate them to grow others.

Hi again, Greg~

There is something that I am curious about in regards to
the actual process of moving up the scale. I've read over your previous posts (BTW, A GIANT THANK YOU to Pink Star for
consolidating all of Greg's posts! That made it so much easier to read!) But I didn't find any relation to what I am wanting to know... which is...
When you experience a drop in your setpoint, do you begin again at the initial setpoint from where you started OR do you start where you left off OR... What do you do???

As you know, I've been at this for a few days now, and things were going really well, then today... :? Well, I began this morning moving into the notch of Contentment on the EGS. Quite honestly, it felt to be a tiny stretch for me to go there but
I thought I would just be easy about it & experiment w/ it to see what happened. Later in the day, throughout the day, I found myself vibrating at my initial setpoint, that of Frustration/Impatience/Irritation. By this evening, I had dropped down even further, feeling Disappointment that I had been doing so well & now I'm back to where I started.
OK... so, I've accepted where I presently am and I am feeling comfortable returning to the notch of Boredom, since Contentment felt like sort of a stretch. I was curious if you have had any similar experiences & if so, how did you deal w/ them?
Also, any insight you may have would be much appreciated.

I'm still feeling very excited about the application of this process... I feel great things happening & moving into place
in the quantum ocean!

Thank you again!
Many blessings~

Natty, I had a flash of insight in working with this that clarified something similar for me. (It may or may not be helpful for you, of course!)

So there I was, cruising along at contentment. Which is where I still am: I really want to stabilize here. It's interesting, as a sidebar, I've started to realize that this thing I do - I can only describe it as a damping-down of a negative emotion - far from being me doing anything helpful, is really me refusing to climb UP the scale on a structural basis.

Anyhoo, so I'm hanging out in contentment. It's nice. Periodically, I'll have very short "flashes" or bursts of EXCITEMENT, and I'll also have short flashes or bursts of much more gloomy feelings.

Previously, I've thought that maybe I was edging into excitement, or glumness, whatever that burst of feeling is. But now I'm starting to think that wherever you are, particularly when you're not fully and completely stabilized there, you still have vibrational access to the range of emotions on either side: but the further away the emotion is, the shorter and shallower the access is. So I can have these "bursts" of thrilling enthusiasm, but it of course doesn't stick. It can't stick. That's not where I am!

And I think that the glum feelings are like that too. I have noticed myself focusing on them and going "Oh geez, here we go!" so I'm trying to just gently observe and release. Just because I still have access to those feelings doesn't mean I have to focus on them. The majority of my vibration is happing at a much higher frequency. (I think.)

Interestingly - and cheering stuff, to me - even though I'm not even up in hope yet, I have noticed a number of things on this subject start to open up: four different people who would be able to help me along my career path (that's what I'm working on) have contacted ME. I didn't reach out to them! They came to me. What's even more interesting (again, to me, lol!) is that one of hte people is someone who'd previously contacted me, but who had disappeared. And suddenly here she was, sorry for the long silence, but I'd love to read your project... (I'm a writer, although my rambling here may not show it. HAH.)

Anyway. Whenever I'm feeling those little dips, I just sort of ignore them and try to get back to where I was feeling mostly stabilized. This has been a pretty big insight for me, but I know exactly what you're talking about, and I hope you find some relief.

Actually, for the past few days, I have experienced what
you are talking about... Yes, it has felt like "flashes" of
emotion on either side of where I am on the EGS. And I was
very aware of what was going on... And like Greg said, my
internal response was that of, "Oh, isn't that interesting?!" But today felt different... The emotion felt more constant, not like the flashes I had experienced in days past. I am attributing it to my reaching for Contentment, even though I didn't quite feel up to speed w/ myself to go there just yet. And as a result, I slid back down into Frustration. Which is OK... I entered into journaling about Contentment knowing that it was a stretch, but I was curious to know what would happen if I went there anyway.
:allgood
After all, it is a "process", right? ::chin

jmac and Natty - thanks so much for saying you were happy with me consolidating Greg's posts. I had been worrying about what others thought of what I had done.

That actually taught me a very good lesson. About my insecurity! Caring too much about what others think.

I started the process yesterday on 2 issues - Money and Self-worth. ::nod

I scripted free-hand for around a couple of hours .. really dredged up those negative feelings that I don't normally admit to. (I'm famous for those fake smileys)

I decided to stay in the feelings of insecurity for another day, so I can really feel what I feel .. then move up to Jealousy tomorrow (Oooh, I have a LOT to cover there!)

I am so into doing this!

Thanks again Greg and all of you on this thread. I KNOW this is going to change my life for the better. I know I am a mirror of my world, so I will also change others lives for the better.

Hey Pink,

You forgot the most important part of each post you referenced: 'To the God in You"!

::devil

But, really, that statement is another point to ponder. We each have a "God in embryo" in us. Waiting to be ushered forth each day. Waiting in the gap between our thoughts.

I think it's really cool what you did, clipping my posts together. Thank you for the that - the effort it took was, I'm sure, beneficial to you, but it feels like a big compliment to me. Bless you.

Natty,

Yes. I "backslide" too.

Sometimes it comes from a case of the HALTS (getting too Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired, or Serious). In which case I quit paying any attention to my thoughtsand take care of me.

Sometimes I'm simply resisting. When that happens, I step back and say, "Gee. I'm resisting. How curious. I wonder why I'm doing that. It's okay for me to do, but where is it coming from and why?"

Adopting that perspective immediately puts me back into allowing mode. Puts me in an accepting mode. And then, guess what? I'm no longer resisting!

I haven't found that I have to go way back down the scale. But I have found that I probably moved up to the next highest emotion too fast. (That's called, of course, "slapping a smiley face on it". When I slap smiley faces on, it gets scary and feels fake/out of control/impeding doom ahead.) In that case, I slow down and spend a little more time with the previous emotional set point.

When I relax, allow, and put my attention back on the previous emotional set point the scary, fake/out of control/impeding doom feelings disappear almost immediately. And I'm back on track.

::boat

If no one's told you today, I love you.

To the God in You,

Greg

That couldn't have come at a BETTER time Greg! ::TU

I had started your process on working with 2 subject: Money AND Self-Worth and I was having a difficult time seperating one from the other ..

So, I just asked my inner being to give me a sign, and sure enough a book fell open and I read the words (using some poetic liscense here):

"Your self-esteem and Intuition work together, you will find it difficult tolisten to your intuition if you don't value yourself/have high self-worth."

WOW!!

It became clear to me, that my intuition (those gut feelings) and my Inner Being are one and the same - they ARE the God in me!

So, I am just going to focus on rasing my vibration on self-worth/self-esteem .. because my Inner Being told me, that if I focus there, all other things will naturally find alignment .. that by raising my self worth, all the coolthings in my vibrational escrow will naturally follow.

I really felt a revelation in this. ::nod

.. ..That by loving and accepting ourselves in every way, money, relationships, success in everything we ever wanted becomes a vibrational match!

This was confirmation for me!
This morning, I was contemplating my vibe
on "Self-worth"... I've actually been doing the process on the topic of Parenting but I've noticed quite a few times since I began, feelings of "not being a good mother" have crept in.
So I was thinking about putting the Parenting issue aside & working on the Self-worth issue for awhile. Somehow, I sensed that once I raised my set-point on my feelings of Self-worth, everything else would easily move into place.
And then here's your post!

Sending many blessings to you~

Oh Natty, that's great. Yes, everything in my life seems to hang around self-worth .. parenting too.

And I've just moved myself up from powerlessness to insecurity .. and just about to work with jealousy ... oh, even that word jealousy ties me in knots!

And when I saw your photo .. I did feel jealous of you and your beautiful face and hair! I recognise that a lot of my self-worth when I was younger was tied up in how I looked, or others approval of how I looked .. and here you are to trigger my jealousy ::devil

Oh well, from where I am standing, jealousy is downstream .. and something I need to feel right now. It's normally a subject I would avoid, and it's definitely a subject that *other people* normally condemn.

My Goodness, what will happen when I move up to rage/hatred? ::chin

Hello to all; hello to me!

Simon, if I understand your inquiry correctly let me answer thusly: I write and write (an emotional, hand-written "bowel movement", if you will) as honestly as it is possible. Then I match the dominant feeling(s) which came out with an emotion from the Emotional Guidance System.

From there, I concentrate on moving my perspective up the scale one emotional tick at a time.

Natty and Pink,

How amazing it is to experience you two coaching and encouraging each other! Beautiful.

Here's what my IB has to say about that: all is self-referral. Everything in our material world is all the same thing - created from the Quantum Field - it's all simply God experiencing God.

You've heard it said that this is all an illusion? That's true, but there is an important distinction to understand. "Allis illusion..." doesn't refer to all material objects in the universe being "not real." They're real all right!

No, the illusion referred to by "All is illusion..." is that we are separate from each other (and all material objects). The illusion is that I think there is a separate entity called "Greg" who is unique and distinct from "Natty" and "Pink" and my "alarm clock" and my "nightstand", etc. etc.

The illusion is that I'm NOT simply interacting with myself. That's what "all is self-referral" means. Everything in the universe is really the self observing the self.

And whenyou are in the gap,you experience timeless awareness. Timeless awareness is where the observer, the observed, and the act of observation become one. During timeless awareness all possibilities are present...because you are in the gap (theQuantum Field).

This iswhy it is important for youto (eventually)vibrate from the emotional set point of love/joy/appreciation in all areas. Because true love/joy/appreciation is timeless awareness. You lose theillusion of being separated from your object of love/joy/appreciation!

When you no longer look atthe object or skill you desire to manifest as an "object" to be attained, used, and from which to gratify and/or satisfy yourself, you are in a place of love/joy/appreciation. You have entered the field of all possibilities, you are no longer something separate from that which youare observing, and your desire is, literally,spontaneously manifest.

And then, being physical beings playing God's beautiful game called "life onEarth," you will lose that perspective andreturn to the pain of the illusion. The illusion that you are separate from all other "things." Like me, you're human, without the experience of years of dedicated practiceand you'll go back to the illusion that your children, your boyfriend, your money, your car, your parents, etc. are not reallyYOU in a form of self-referral!

But thanks to this process, meditation, education, attention, intention, and myriad other ways, you will continually return to the gap. To timeless awareness. And you will experience, more and more, the spontaneous fulfillment of your desires. And you'll find yourself spending more and more time there as the days pass.

If you're like me, that is. And I KNOW YOU ARE! Because you are me...and I you.

To the God in You,

Greg

Greg,

I’m new to the forums and I have to thank you for your wonderful “method”.
I’m a real how-to kind of person and your approach makes so much sense. I just started on my 1st “subject” (me & money) and wrote out everything I feel & believe about the subject. Not pretty, but…I feel like I just cleaned out the garage, piled everything up out on the driveway and now I can at least LOOK at it and decide what to keep, what to change and what to throw away…and I haven’t even started working my way up yet. So just this 1st step is so powerful & freeing. I feel “lighter” about the whole thing.:):)
I can’t wait til I have time tomorrow to move up “just one tick” .

So…thank you!!

Hello all,

Thank you for continuing to read, and reply to, this thread. How cool Steph! I always need reminders to continue this work. At least for me, it's funny how taking care of me and my desires is sometimes the last thing on the list!

I got a great reminder this morning, during meditation, to get back on track regarding my writing! Not my book (I've got cool stuff happening there, which I'll post about at the end of the month), but my own personal journaling.

During the past week and a half, it's become very apparent that I've been using my brain as if it were my mind. What a tough habit to break! But an essential habit to break for us manifestors.

Why?

Your brain executes your thoughts, but it does not create them. The creation of your thoughts, and all other commands, fall exclusively within the domain of the powers of the mind.


What are the consequences of operating under this illusion, that your brain is your commander? The direst one is this: you will define yourself by your circumstances. When you harbor the illusion of brain as commander, you adopt a state of being (who you are) based upon your current circumstances.


In other words, you see empty bank accounts so you believe, “I am not wealthy.” You see sickness so you believe, “I am not healthy.” You see a job with longs hours, lots of stress, and low pay so you believe “I do not have a good job.”


This is backwards. This is incorrect. This paradigm is akin to taking a bus ride and believing, “I own a bus and I always travel in it” just because you happen to be sitting in one. Wouldn’t you call such a belief “wacko”?


Yet that is what you are doing every day if you let your brain be your commander. The brain has no power to give commands. The brain’s power is limited to carrying out commands – that is what it is made to do, that is what it is good at doing, and that is what you should limit it to doing.


Yourbrain does not create your reality - your reality merely reflects your thoughts. There are infinite possibilities in the Quantum Field; what you are seeing in your current reality is just the results of your previous thoughts. You should never define your state of being (who you are) based upon the results of your previous thoughts (your current reality).


Your previous thoughts, which produced your current reality, have no bearing on your future (unless you let them).



The powers of the mind, however, are unlimited. The mind decides your thoughts, decisions, and actions. The powers of the mind are the powers you’ve always been seeking. The power to manifest anything you desire comes from the powers of the mind.


If you remember, from ealier posts, you can communion with your mind (the Source), by going to the gap between your thoughts. Not only canyou do this during seated meditation, but you can also do this, I'm finding, by purposefully turning off your brain.


The way I turn off my brain is to gentlytell it,"You're not needed at the moment." Then I visualize actually lifting the top of my head off my body and placing it at my side. I've become brainless...and it feels great! I'm totally awake in the moment because I'm no longer burdened by all the illusions of past and present!


But, oh boy, does it take a lot of practice and patience! My brain has had forty years of free reign - it feels entitled and the rest of my body has accepted its kingship as the norm.


Let me know how it's going for you!


To the God in You,


Greg

Great post to read this morning, Greg!! ::TU

It brought to mind a quote of the day from a few days ago that said matter is simply an evolution of energy....

Our thoughts project energy into the future, and all those infinite quantum possibilities evolve and manifest accordingly...

I agree, it takes some practice to really wrap your mind around that concept and embrace it as truth, because, as you said, so many of us are accustomed to looking at the equation backwards...I've only recently got this through my thick skull enough to alter my long-established habits of moment-to-moment thought, so nothing has really changed yet in my physical experience; but now that I've crossed that threshhold in my mind, I feel so much better and I know that all I am wanting is on it's way!!

I've really enjoyed this thread, Greg!!

Namaste!

Thank you so much Greg ::hugging, you just don't realize how much I needed to read what you just wrote here.

I really admire and appreciate you, not only are you a wonderful creator, but you also take the time to share with all of us here. No wonder you are where you are, you are really and truly being who you really are... Source.

I have been mostly good about following the teachings and raising my vibration, but sometimes it just automatically happens that we revert to the old pattern.... but, having said that... I'm moving forwards and letting that thought flow out smoothly and gently...

Greg,

I've enjoyed reading your post over the last few days. I do believe what you wrote about the mind Vs. brain. Was wondering if you or someone else could expand on this as it relates to mental illness. I work as a "psych nurse" and routinely interact and care for those who have been labeled delusional or having hallucinations. I have asked myself why an individual whom has been labeled with a mental illness and is quite delusional about their reality does not actually have physically in their realitywhat they believe to have because they so strongly believe. A person in this state does not have the same filter that I have to convince myself otherwise he/she really believes that his reality is one way but I can so easily see that this person absolutely does not have believed reality. Hope this makes some sense. Looking forward to reading others insights.

Hi Greg

I like your post on mind. However I would simplify it further to perspective. Abraham says there are only two perspectives non physical and physical.

The interesting thing that the non physical perspective has introduced, through the teachings of Abraham, to us in the physical,is the sixth sense(power of emotion) thus giving us direction via a link to the non physical perspective. As you know, by recognising and using this sixth sense we all can have a more fulfilling experience here in the physical.

So getting back to what your thoughts, I expect we in the Blended Physical /Non Physical awakened state sometimes forget which perspective we are focusing from.

Meaning the 5 sense old physical perspective or the new enlightened blended perspective. Like what you said, we can still get confused by the contrast (possibilities) from 'what is'

I find that by maintaining and managing my vibrationit is easier to recognise

from which perspective I am focused i.e. Blended or not.:)

your thoughts?

Hi Dawn

Some questions
:)
From your experience and taking into account compensatory medication, are these patients generally happyindividually within there own reality?

Within their perspective(world), do they exibit the same emotions as other healthy people do?

Is it possible for them to find better feeling thoughts within their reality?


Your thoughts?

Simon,

What a beautiful thought and a fantastic addition to this thread! Thank you.

You're so right: meditation and "turning off" your brain are ways to commune with Source. And we already have a ready-madechannel with Source - our emotions.Emotions areyet another channel - and our primaryone at that!

Sometimes I forget about the "non-scientific" stuff when I'mdoing a brain dump.Emotions being our direct line ofcommunication (re: our alignment with source)is a primary teaching of Abraham. And many other LOA teachers.

Yes, we have Source walking with us every moment of every day. Through our emotions and meditation (both seated and walking) we are connected!

Dawn,

It is scientifically true that there are as many universes are there are observers. That is why, of course, the process of moving up the emotional scale works so well - you see a different universe when you vibrate differently.

You live in a different universe than me. We could go see "Across the Universe" together, watch the same exact movie, and, yet,see two completely different movies (i.e. you love it/I hate it). I know that's almost a trite example, but it does correctly illustrate this principle.

And neither of us is "mentally ill", so I don't know that it would be any different for a person who's been so labeled.

To the God in You,

Greg

Hi Greg

When I first started posting on the original Abraham forum and this one also. I had a lot of questions. After a while I started realising that my questions where all based from my point of focus(perception) i.e (the apparatus)my physical awareness of my self.

It was not until I broadened my perception of myself through recognising the link between the non physical and the physical. I achieved that by following the processes laid out by Abraham(in a nut shell) Allowing my feelings to be my guide.

When I read this thread a while back I saw what you where suggesting was a perfect example of raising your vibrational set point on all aspects of personality as we focused and drew our attention to them.

What I am saying is that we will continue to get confused if we try to understand the non physical from a five senses physical (apparatus perspective) no matter how much science we throw at it.

The only real proof we have of the non physical,from a physical perspective is 'the link'(EG). Unless we recognise and engage it, we as physical beings, will continue to flounder in confusion, and I'll allow that to be if others choose that path. I choose to allow my feelings to be my guide and leave my 'reasoning ability'to do what it was meant for i.e helping me decide what I want.

I don'texpect that we could ever convince science that it has been out smarted by the appreciation of something those studiers of theapparatus find as a hindrance of nuisance to reasoningi.e Our emotional state of being.

The funny thing is the emotional adventure makes sense of everything. But Hey, That's my opinion now, and it can change.:)

Your thoughts?

Here is a quote that says everything:

By paying attention to the way you feel, and then choosing thoughts that feel the very best, you are managing your own vibration, which means you are controlling your own point of attraction -- which means you are creating your own reality. It's such a wonderful thing to realize that you can create your own reality without sticking your nose in everybody else's, and that the less attention you give to everybody else's reality, the purer your vibration is going to be -- and the more you are going to be pleased with what comes to you.

Greg, LaughingHeart (love that name) inspired me, like others here, to try his method of moving up the EGS one day at time through writing and honestly feeling my way through it. A big thankyou, Greg, for sharing so much on this! What an encouraging example you are!

I printed out some of your instructional posts, as well as some from Ella and Christy, and off I went to rip that smiley face from my 'non-issue'. I see the value in having the patience not to try for 'quantum leaps' but boy is it hard! I don't want to feel like that! I feel resistance to my resistance, damnit!

Anyway, after I made myself acknowledge my true setpoint by writing it down (somebody in a previous post mentioned vomiting - an apt metaphor. Once you do it, you feel relief.) I tried to find my place on the EGS and had real difficulty. Especially trying to find the next emotion up. I didn't find the steps necessarily consecutive. I wonder if anyone else has felt this way? I don't think Abe would care if I made my own, one that progresses in more detail and that resonates with me personally. Please don't think I am criticizing the EGS or trying to change it. This is for me. Regardless, I thought it would be fun to share:

note: the entries in each step are not meant to be sysnonyms, but are grouped according to degrees of self-empowerment and intensity


My EGS

depression, helplessness, powelessness, despair, emptiness, meaninglessness, dejection, sorrow, grief, despondency, morose


humiliation, abandonment, loneliness, worthlessness, shame, weakness, frailty, desolation, withdrawn


terror, fear, panic, anxiety, insecurity, angst, overwhelmed, aversion, distress


hatred, anger, rage, guilt, self-recrimination, resentment, bitterness, blame, contempt, disgust, offence, jealousy, envy, regretful, petulant, sullen


pessimism, doubt, pity, sadness, resignment, disappointment, discouragement, world-weary


worry, apprehensive, nervousness, hesitant, timid, uncertain, unsure, indecisive


frustration, irritation, aggravation, confusion, annoyance, grumpy, impatience, dismay, exasperation, querulousness


tedium, uneasiness, stagnation, discontent, ennui, lassitude, moody, brooding, distraction, restlesness


boredom, apathy, complacence, detachment, indifference, uninspired


melancholy (sober thoughtfulness), pensive, mindfulness, introspective, solemnity


contentment, peaceful, acceptance, relaxed, calm, satisfied, serene, wistful, daydreamy, contemplative, meditative, inquisitive, interested, perceptive


optimistic, courageous, hopeful, encouraged, intent, ambitious, playful, friendly, cheerful, compassion, caring


eagerness, enthusiasm, anticipation, surprised, wellbeing, satisfaction, sincerity, glad, lighthearted


joy, thrill, passion, excitement, wonder, engrossed, rapt, sensual, inspiration, delight, mirth


love, elation, ecstasy, happiness, confidence, powerful, alive, clarity, lucidity, ease, flowing



So let me know what you think! I would love to hear others 'scales.' I find it easier to move from step to step here, but I am struggling with staying on one step per day. I want so badly to feel good, to move on, but I realize that if leaps were possible I wouldn't still be nagged by that smiley face.

trying my patience, lol,

Hi Simon -

What I see varies between patients. For the most part I see a lot of fear and paranoia. A patient who is manic and grandiose certainly feels very good within their world and this is usually a hinderance in keeping them on their medications as this high feels good. What I often find are patients who have very paranoid beliefs such as believing others (strangers in public) are talking about them or small people are hiding in their basment spying on them or the FBI has their TV bugged. Hearing voices from the devil seem to be a common theme and you can imagine how freightening this must feel to a person if you believe you are really hearing these voices. Is is possible for them to feel better thoughts? I work in an inpatient setting however, I suppose that if a patient were stablized on their medication it may be possible to then work with them to feel better thoughts but when in the mist of hallucinations or delusions this is a near impossible task.

Greg,

Let me give you an example: A few years ago I worked with a young white malepatient whom believed adamantly that he was a famous black rapper. This young man would become very angry everytime he took a shower believing that the shower washed away his blackness. But then his blackness would return and he would be happy again in his famous rapper world. Now, my question is if this white person really believed himself to be a famous black rapper then why was he not? If he really believed himself to be black then why did he remain black. If he really believed to be a famous rapper with lots of money then why did he remain without money and in a locked psych unit of a hospital.

I have lots of creation stories of my own and see how this works in my life but then when I witness struggles in realities with my patients I question why they don't have what they really believe to be true.

How can I attract this money..?

Here at home in Austria at my parents house I can't any more,I have to go away.

Hi Greg and all the others who use this process,

I started a few days ago by simply writing down as many of the bad-feeling thoughts concerning my studies as possible (I study Mathematics). I am extremely "lazy" (I don't believe in "lazy", but most people understand what is labelled by that word), and since this is an issue since I was seven or eight, it would be great to turn that into something productive (aaaaand because mathematics and lazy don't go well together).
Then I tried to identify where on the EGS these statements are, and I found out that many of them are as low as unworthiness and some as (relatively) high as pessimism. So I simply counted them; the whole process took about twenty minutes. After that I felt quite relieved. So far so good.

The next few days I did nothing about that process, because I didn't want to get to this feeling place (it was not exactly a joyful experience). In the meantime, I wrote something I appreciated about math or studying itself, whenever it felt good, but didn't purposefully relate it to this process. (I work on several "ends", and yeah, it simply felt good)

Today I wanted to go on with this process, but I don't feel it as clearly anymore as I did when I started. I wanted to go from Unworthiness to Jealousy, but actually I don't even know how to "dwell" on a feeling. I wrote down statements like "I want ... too". How do you get to a feeling place when you don't feel it? When you only intellectually know that certain statements should be labelled "jealous"? Did I do something "wrong" by not staying focused? Should I still focus on unworthiness (I thought that would defy the purpose since it's where I started - and don't want to stay)?Do you do these processes only when you are in the specific feeling-place? And how long do you usually dwell on these feelings? are 10 minutes too short? How do you decide if it's enough?

I also thought that maybe this is a sign that I am actually improving and focusing on jealousy is somewhat like stepping down on the EGS, but then I immediately doubted that by thinking "oh, that's just because I want to avoid the pain" and I am just putting on a Happyface.::chin

Any similar experiences?

Steffi! I am so excited to hear from you! I am studying physics and I have so many of the same questions and feelings about it! I posted some of them in a thread called talents... I too have been trying to apply Greg's method to this issue. I have only come so far as making up my own EGS, one I can feel the progression and relief from step to step but I have yet to actually use it. Honestly, I have an exam on Tuesday and trying to stay in pessimism and move on from anxiety to blame to frustration etc just isn't going to serve me while I am trying to study. I have been trying to think positively "I actually am good at this when I give myself the chance" and so on. Sometimes it helps - I can really feel that way, sometimes it is a smiley face. Anyway, I am thrilled to see you on this forum!

Hi Steffi~ ::wave

You've posted some good questions that I've experienced &
wondered about myself... I'm anticipating Greg's reply.

I wanted to reply to this question:

"How do you get to a feeling place when you don't feel it?"

I experienced this when I was moving up from Pessimism
into Boredom concerning the topic of Parenting. I really
had to search myself for some feelings of Boredom. What
I found was that Boredom became sort of a goal for me to
reach for whenever I realized that I was in a lower emotion
on the EGS.

Also, I usually "dwell" on feelings as long as they feel good or feel like relief... If Jealously doesn't feel good to you after 10
minutes, or 20 minutes or longer, then GREAT! Move your thoughts on to higher vibrations.

BTW, Welcome to the forum! ::grapevine Natty

Wow. A lot of wonderful postings to keep up with. I'm afraid that I won't get to comment on all the various thoughts and questions in this post. I'll have to come back later and play catch up.

Simon, cool stuff. I know I’ve come to this physical realm to teach this information from a rational (in the philosophical sense) viewpoint, explaining science and digging into the nuts and bolts of it. I am so attracted to “how to” and concrete explanations.



Cowgirl, mental illness? I am not a physician; you know more about mental illness than I do. I do know that most of us have real difficulty changing our beliefs about something we “know” (like I know I’m Greg, not a famous rapper). Do mentally ill people really know they are whatever “delusion” they think they are? I can’t answer that. To “know” is a state of being. You just are…that’s it. If you are, you are.



Most humans (me included) have made the mistake of thinking that affirmations and positive thinking can supercede a belief (how do you think I got all that debt I had to get rid of?). Boy do we quickly find out that is WRONG! Positive thinking and affirmations (beautiful tools when used properly, please don't get me wrong here) are most often nothing but a thin veneer covering an ocean of negative belief. As they are commonly taught in our culture, they are mostly "smiley faces" and you'll get the same results as any other "smiley face" you try!



Which segues into a common question I’m getting: people are saying, “Hey, I was up to writing from the emotional perspective of ‘happy’ and all of a sudden I’ve been back to feeling depressed. Should I start over again? What’s wrong?”



Please understand that the new emotional perspectives you’re gaining for the issues about which you’re writing are very real. But they’re also no more permanent than your old perspectives (you changed them, right?) Each day you have a choice from which perspective you want to vibrate; this process gives you new, more positive choices but they’re still choices.



Don’t be discouraged by these “backslides”. Remember that old habits die hard…because you’ve spent a lifetime building neural pathways in your brain. The new ways of thinking are unfamiliar and, often, uncomfortable. Surprising at it is, the familiar pain of old thoughts is often very appealing because of your familiarity with it. That’s part of the “human condition.”



So don’t start from scratch. Manage yourself through the rough patch, reach for the better feeling thoughts (as often as possible from moment to moment), and believe that you're heading in the right direction.A great thing to say to yourself during these times is, "Oh. I'm resisting right now. How curious. I wonder why? I don't need to resist; I wonder where that'scoming from?" Thisself-affirming response puts you rightback into acceptance (and you're no longer resisting).



Sonne, welcome to this forum. If you don't have the money in your current reality, then you are not vibrating at the samefrequency as that form/level of abundance. Follow the steps laid out in thisthread and work your way up the emotional guidancescale, slowly but surely, until you are vibrating withthat money. It'll be there!



Steffi, cool...math! The language of nature. Reading your post I am reminded of a wise saying, "Until we agree to suffer, there will be no end to the suffering." What that means to me is that until I am willing to look the pain I'm dealing with every single day (on, at least, an unconscious level) I will always have that pain.



The way I move into a new feeling perspective is to write, freeform, how that issue would look/feel/sound/taste/smell/etc. from that new perspective. Whatwould "financial freedom", for example, feel like fromthe perspective of jealousy? Often, it's duringthe writing for one of the "thisemotion doesn't make any sense!" perspectives that a big smack upside the head comes- an unexpected insight that totally rocks your world and changes your viewpoint forever. Give each emotion its own day - try it, play with it, you'll be amazed.



Elaira, thank you so much for posting that scale! I've been putting off making my own and may borrow liberally from your efforts. If you don't mind.



Please keep the insights coming. I love you.



To the God in You,

Greg

Greg,

I started using your process today - got it all out on paper, this difference between my desire and my vibration - but it's a hard to find it on the EGS - because I seem to be all over the scale. Even though I have disappointment, I also have hope and even positive expectation; even though I have worry, I have belief and happiness. I thought, okay, this is my overall feeling - and tried to narrow it to just this subject, but it's hard to dwell there - it's a fleeting thing. Is this my putting smiley faces on it? Because I really am hopeful!

Insight?

Hi Greg

Isn't there enough concrete evidence in theexperience onemanifests from following the emotional guidance that comes from our IB?

Our state of being is our point of attraction and our adventure here in the physical is in managing that vibration, moment by moment,thought by thought.

Where does science fit into this scenario?

I agree that practicing processes of looking truthfully at "what is"is fundamental to getting to know what is wanted(desire). For without knowing where you are how will you ever know where you are going..(That is what Iexpect you are teaching)
Abraham has made it abundantly clear that we can start from where ever we are now. We need only drop the oars and stop paddling upstream.

Hey Lauri, I only use this process on issues where there is great pain/great distance between my desire and my current manifestations.

I agree that there is almost always tinges of hope and other good emotions. But if positive emotions are my dominant feelings about an issue...I don't need to use this process on it!I don't need to become "it"; I'm already"it"!

In other words, if I feel good about something already -I'm not going to be writing about it. And if I already have what I desire - I'm not going to be writing about it.

On appropriately painful issues, Isimplywrite aboutwhere I am (emotionally) and see where that best fits on the scale. I'm not always at the most negative emotion, but I'm definately not at the top either.

I hope that helps.

To the God in You,

Greg

Thanks for replying! I have a question though. You said "Most humans (me included) have made the mistake of thinking that affirmations and positive thinking can supercede a belief (how do you think I got all that debt I had to get rid of?). Boy do we quickly find out that is WRONG! Positive thinking and affirmations (beautiful tools when used properly, please don't get me wrong here) are most often nothing but a thin veneer covering an ocean of negative belief. As they are commonly taught in our culture, they are mostly "smiley faces" and you'll get the same results as any other "smiley face" you try!"

This relates to the recent thread 'KNOWING is not just Believing.' My question could just as easily fit into that thread. I would love to just KNOW, and I agree that there is no substitute for knowing such as positive affirmations and the like. I also agree that that state of KNOWING is what we are going for as it is what gets things done in the sense that there is never doubt or impatience, only anticipation, in something that you KNOW is going to happen.

Janice said "I have experienced the crossover fromBELIEF toKNOWING. It is something that is so overwhelming that it cannot be described. No other feeling can match it. It is total and complete PEACE and LOVE. I wish it for everyone."

Well, Greg and Janice, how do you get to that place of knowing without positive affirmations, looking for things to appreciate, looking for the evidence, etc, having faith as it were??

Elaira,

This very topicis something I was discussingyesterday with a man who took this process to Las Vegas. With limited poker experience, hesat down at some pro-level poker tables and came away with more money than he started. He used this process to circumvent and enhance (not cheat!) the normal learning curve.

And that's what we're doing here too. What we're learning to do, by learning to be deliberate creators, is learning to add rocket fuel to the normal learning process.

Think about it. How do you learn something? How do you "know" you can do something or be something?

You practice and practice and practice, under the guidance of a teacher or coach, until you "know" you are what you desire. Achieving a promotion, earning a degree, having a successful marriage, lifting weights, running a marathon, being an elite poker player, driving a race car, etc, etc, etcare usuallyall manifested in this manner.

The equation is: First you learn it, then you practice it, then you believe it, then you see it.

Deliberate creators are, in a sense, saying, "I'm going to start at the "...then you believe it..." portion of the previous equation." And you do this by raising your vibration.

This is a magical process and it really does work (as you know). It is not "cheating" (although other people might not think it's "fair" that you "skipped" all the blood, sweat, and tears they went through!), it is simply taking advantage of the leading-edge knowledge and awareness you possess!

Affirmations: Many people, with the best intentions,use affirmations and positive thinking in lieu of the vibration-raising we are doing. This is because they don't know (yet::thumb) about raising their vibrations! Used in lieu of vibration-raising (or in lieu of the normal learn, practice, believe, be/do process), affirmations and positive thinking are "smiley faces".

We, however, can use affirmations and positive thinking adjunctively with vibration raising. This is powerful! As long as we don't avoid looking honestly at each emotional set point (so we can feel it, be it, and move past it!) the affirmations and positive thinking become additional rocket fuel onour very real journey to fulfilling our desires!

This has been my experience in working with LOA students.

To the God in You,

Steffi & Elaira,

I think I've been experiencing the same thing you have. I skipped several steps (jealousy, hatred/rage, revenge, blame... i don't have the scale in front of me...) because I couldn't feel them. It seemed false to force myself to write about them. But after "vomiting" worry and then doubt, I started to feel a lot of blame, so I wrote about that. Then I started to feel extremely jealous and wrote on that. It feels kind of weird going backwards, but I really think that I'm dredging up stuff that I have been carrying with me. Things are definitely moving around, cracking open, letting some light in. I don't really like mucking around in these yucky feelings, I just got over a miserable stomach flu, then was consumed with anger all last night and today (and attracting the same from my kids), but I do think it needs to be done. Elaira, I like your scale, very eloquent and sensitive. I'm going to see how it works for me.

hi streamdancer,

this makes sense to me (and is kind of soothing, thanks a lot).
I was in therapy for several years and there I learned that you can only "open up" and work on the "hard" stuff, when you feel safe and good at a certain level. if your overall emotional setpoint is too low, you cannot "do it all at once" (at least thats my experience, so that's what I'm accustomed to and am therefore expecting), so I'll skip what I can't feel, too, and see if it comes back in "waves". Cool. (I love knowing that I know from experience that I'm "good" at the long-term "better-getting" of my feelings)
And I have to admit, I felt a kind of pressure in thinking that someday I'll sit there and have overcome several steps on the EGS and be thinking: "So, now that I've come that far - I'm not "allowed" to be jealous anymore" (in other words, I should've "truly" overcome that, and if there are still some remainders, I've done something wrong - and have to start all over again).

I also thought that I wouldn't have placed jealousy so low on the EGS, but then I thought maybe it's there, because when you're jealous you feel relatively powerless and insecure of your right to be loved.


Elaira,

I'm excited to see you here, too::wave.
I've read your post in "talents" and was immediately reminded of my situation - exactly my thought.
I already wanted to reply there, but I'll do it here instead: in my (pre-abe) life I've made the experience that whenever I really needed something, it was there for me (I'm working on changing that believe into "whenever I want something" :)). and also concerning math - I never was in a situation where I didn't understand something I really needed to understand. So I thought maybe it's not about "getting" something, but to acknowledge that at the right time in the right situation understanding and this deliciousdelicious AHA-feeling WILL BE THERE.:exactly:
And that kinda soothed me as well. ;o)

i didn't think it was possible, but i unloaded a lot of hate and rage. good stuff. i feel lighter now. revenge was fun. i had to get kind of silly about it, but some of my vengeful ideas actually sound like good ones (if done out of joy rather than revenge) and even the ridiculous ones clearly show me where my desires lie. i'm aware of the negativity of my intentions, but the relief sure feels great. vengeance is mine!::LOL

Greg,

You said, " The equation is: First you learn it, then you practice it, then you believe it, then you see it.

Deliberate creators are, in a sense, saying, "I'm going to start at the "...then you believe it..." portion of the previous equation." And you do this by raising your vibration.

Affirmations: Many people, with the best intentions,use affirmations and positive thinking in lieu of the vibration-raising we are doing.

We, however, can use affirmations and positive thinking adjunctively with vibration raising. This is powerful! As long as we don't avoid looking honestly at each emotional set point (so we can feel it, be it, and move past it!) the affirmations and positive thinking become additional rocket fuel onour very real journey to fulfilling our desires!"

I think you right. I am learning how to get to the 'knowing' part by practicing. I didn't 'know' I could ride a bike before I had ever learned, fell over a few times got back on the bike. Then again, Knowing is distinct from believing. Like Yoda said, "Do or do not, there is no try." Know or don't know, belief is just trying?

Well, I CAN say that finding things to appreciate is becoming much more natural. It is such a turn anymore to look for the great now, imagine the best and look forward to it. So I am getting somewhere. I Know I am getting better at this! And that is something.

Christy, I'm glad someone like my scale! I have certainly found it helpful.

Steffi, perhaps, like you, I just need to trust that what I need will be there for me, including understanding. That is certainly a better way of going about it than I have been.

Hello Greg,
I joined this Site yesterday and I can hardly read any other thread than this one!
You are an amazing teacher!
Your explanations are so clear and straight, even for me that I'm a Spanish speaker.
I've been learning about Abraham's teachings for nearly a year now, and for me they have been sort of "open your eyes" stuff. Even though many years ago I was using this from the Metaphysics point of view, which was amazing for me, since helped me achieve many things .

I have been doing this EGS exercise and at the begining was tough because thoughts did not leave me alone....my thinking habits were terrible, not being able to change them at all....slowly, as you have been saying, I have been improving...but still have to work on it.

I made up an excel page to do my "therapy" where I pondered the emotions, grouping them, starting with the most resistant feelings (starting with 50) and ending with the least or 0 resistance. I did it this way thinking of the Upstream and Downstream Analogy, which I love....I use colors to identify resistance, the strongest ones are red...as soon as I think about what I wrote, I check up how I feel about it, then I look for some relief, and slowly I go until I find a downstream thought, that would be green.


I would also like to say that some of your stuff opened my eyes too, it is outstanding the way you say things!
Thanks a lot!!::wide

In response to Elaira's post about the Emotional Guidance Scale I am addinganother version of theEGS. This has been devised by Gill Edwards and is included in her book Wild Love, p.115 (and I think in her latest book A Gift of Life).She calls it her 'own condensed version of the Emotional Scale' and, incidentally, acknowledges Esther, Jerry and Abraham at the beginning of the book:


1. Wild love, joy, passion, enthusiasm, freedom, empowerment, appreciation, gratitude, playfulness, optimism, trust, intuitive knowing.

2. Calmness, acceptance, contentment, inner peace, patience, hopefulness, forgiveness, compassion.

3. Boredom, pessimism, frustration, irritation, impatience.

4. Being overwhelmed, over-busyness, worry, concern, disappointment.

5. Blame, judgement, self-righteousness, stoicism, arrogance, anger, vengeance, hatred, jealousy, obessiveness, need to control.

6. Guilt, insecurity, unworthiness, self-sacrifice, martyrdom, loneliness, feeling trapped or controlled.

7. Depression, grief, despair, fear, disempowerment.



By the way I asked for her permission before posting this. Hope you find it useful - I feel at times I can relate to this version more easily than the standard version ::hearts.

Thank you so much for posting these other emotional charts. It just goes to show that the words we use to describe our emotions are, after all, just words. Use the words that work best for you!

This morning I was meditating and I had a memory of The Matrix. Scene where Neo enters a room to find a boy bending a spoon with his mind. The boy says, "I don't bend the spoon, I bend everything else."

Oh yeah.::bow

Abundance is not a time/space event. Abundance is not a material occurance. It is not found in our physical manifestations.

Abundance is a state of being.

Our physical manifestations reflect our state of being. Not vice-versa.

And, rest assured, every physical manifestation in your life today is merely the result of your previous states of being!

Do not let the cart drive the horse! Do not let your current surroundings dictate your state of being! Your state of being is your decision! Don't bend the "spoon"! Bend everything around it...and the "spoon" will bend too! That's the way it's supposed to work and that's the way it does work - every time!

And that is why this work is so important. Moving yourself up the emotional scale (whichever scale you are using) is taking control of your state of being. This work is you saying, "I will be the one to decide my state of being, THANK YOU! I will not allow my state of being to be dictated by the results of my past perspectives!"

Keep the posts coming!

God speed! My love to you!

To the God in You,

Greg

Like Chris, I'm also having great success with this scale. Greg thanks for starting this thread. While re-reading Process #22 in AAISG, I discovered that Abe also recommended doing this if one found themselves stuck on old patterns.

Processing only an emotion a day has been such an interesting journey. And even though I'm only at #17 today (anger), already I have noticed some shifts.

These shifts provide me with encouragement that I am on the right track. This process is allowing me to quantify my journey.

Yes, I am in Yuma, but I don't feel stuck. I know if I continue this process - one emotion at a time, I will reach San Diego.

I agree! What I love about this is that it really makes the emotional journey tangible. You can really feel great about being angry, because you know that you chose to move up and up and up to get there.

Hi, this is really a long thread.



Can someone summarise what Laughingheart did in essense? He repeatedly kept saying not putting smiley faces stickers on issues or turn a blind eye to negative beliefs etc. Isn't that what we are supposed to do in manifesting? To stop looking at the bad and focus on the good?

i'm slightly confused, and very excited to learn!

Thanks Nightpricess!

Laughingheart, now I understand the process you did. Reading "Ask and It is Given" again today, it is the final process (#22), and is used for topics we have mega-resistence with.

After doing it step by step, i can feel the release and relief. Yes, it is hard to jump the emotional ladder when you are down there, cos as Ab says we only have access to feelings near our vibration. Say when we have Disappointment, Anger, Worry, it is not easy to jump to Joy and Optimism. Yes, although we can ignore the feeling and intellectually affirm a thought that is in the range of Optimism, but the feeling isn't there. Still vibrating at Worry while intellectually and verballyaffirming Joy is really just causing more resistence cos you'd be thinking "BS!".

::LOL

I did it step by step, making sure I feel the feeling at each step of theemotional staircase,and after about 30 minutes, I can feel at the top. It was like a huge relief.

I did also started affirming "I don't have to resist the current emotion", "I release the need to resist, I release the neediness to change this, it's ok".

Perhaps my old resistence is also caused by impatience, worry, frustration, cozwanting to reduce those debts NOW. Anyway Im gonna do this process everyday, maybe just re-readiing the stuff I wrote today to climb the ladder.

So god bless the tax money I paid.

Bless the bills I pay and send them love.

I'm pleased I have the ability to pay it back.

The stock market, bless it, I've learned a lot from it. I had the failures, also had the success. Learn from it and take better and wiser action in the future. NO hard feelings.

Wow. It is so cool to read the experiences and thoughts of you leading edge creators.

I will share something which has come to me after some experiences this month. And, later, I will share my "state of the month" address for January just-past.

If you are like me, you have operated under some illusions your entire life. There are so many illusions which have hampered you - conditions, scarcity, lack, etc. But perhaps the most damaging illusion is the illusion of failure.

You fear failure and dread it. Sometimes you choose not to act, simply to avoid the feeling of "failure." Yet failure does not exist; failure cannot exist.

What you have called "failure" is simply an experience of the opposite end of a spectrum. A spectrum which is that very thing you desire. In other words, what you are calling failure is simply the other end of the thing you desire -"failure" is the thing you desire, just a different aspect of it!

Here's an example. Go to your bathroom sink. Put your hand under your faucet. Turn the hot water handle. The water coming out is cold, right?

Do you begin to grind your teeth, feel constriction and anxiety in your belly, and tell yourself, "See I knew this wouldn't work!"? Of course not! You know that you are, indeed, feeling hot water that simply hasn't become hot yet!

Sound too simplistic? Yet you are doing the exact opposite with many of your desires. You are feeling the "cold water" and focusing on, "This water is cold! This is not working! Where is the hot water?!" It may be subtle and sneaky, but if you are like me, you are doing that with some of your desires.

Here's a key: have no need for the water to turn warm. Choose not to want the water to turn warm. Hold the desire for warm water and KNOW that it will be so. Know it, don't need it.

Isn't that how it works in all your other affairs? If you focus on needing or wanting, that's what the universe delivers to you - you need and want. If you focus on having (and you do have everything...everything already exists, in abundance and potential, all around you every second of every day in the eternal moment of now) the universe delivers that to you - you have.

This is important - needing and wanting keep the water cold. Know that the hot water is turned on and you are not failing (that is not possible). The hot water is coming, you are just feeling the opposite side of it right now.

Know that and you'll start to feel the water warming!

To the God in You,

Greg

[Greg,
I just want to thank you again for starting this thread. This has been such an incredible experience - often painful - however, now I have begun this journey I'm determined to finish it.

I have some fine tuning questions and hope that perhaps you or someone else will answer

For example, revenge and anger were almost easier for me to feel than today's vibe of #13 doubt/disappointment. And earlier, I felt that I fell a couple of rungs because I felt discouraged #16. For me, disappointment feels harder to experience than discouragement. I'm not quite sure why except perhaps, because Anger and Powerlessness used to be my old normal. Do you think that's why these upper levels intially seem more painful than the earlier ones?

Just curious whether others have felt this, or is it just me.

I'm sure Abe would tell me that I'm making too much of this - and hoping from some feedback from those who did this journey - and can reflect back on their experience.

So is normal to feel that some days are actually tougher than the earlier ones even though technically, one is moving up the scale? I keep telling myself that I will reach San Diego even though today I feel stuck in Yuma.

Thanks Greg for sharing your vibration!! It is bringing you many returns!

From my physical and non-physical shoes I want to share my own experience. I have a hard time looking at the emotional scale as idenitification of where I am. Before reading this thread, I have been writing my thoughts about abundance and money. Each evening I sit and write whatever comes to me. I then do a 15-20 minimum mediation before sleeping. After the meditation I always ask source to help me find a higher thought. I tell myself "I am better and better". The next morning I wake with a wonderful feeling. I often wake saying, "I love me!" And a new higher thought is my feeling for the day. An early thought in the process was "no one can hurt me." It felt so good to say it all day long. I was releasing fear and things that would normally strike fear in me were laughable. (It is euphoric to release.) The next day that thought didn't feel as relieving but I had new thought to take it's place.

It is much like Greg's step by step process but "I" am not really identifying my emotion, I am letting Source identify it, that feels good to me. You could say I am getting out of the way and allowing the process.

As I read through this thread I get the idea that many of those struggling are looking out side of themselves for answers. We all have Abraham in us! If we ask we will get an answer, that is the law. I used to look at where I am and those around me for answers. Now I know I can do anything. Without taking a poll or getting aproval or getting measuring it to rules of society.

I didn't always believe I can do anything but I have always believed that life should be fun. I have refused to do things the way society commands. That is how I have ended up in the manifestation on this forum. Boy, does it feel good here!::nod

What I am saying is I appreciate Greg's thread and I want everyone to remember that as Abe has said the Universe is a big, well stocked kitchen, use the ingredients that taste good to you. Believe in Yourself!! IE, Greg is very good at responding to the questions of this thread because he believes he has the answers and so do the questioners, so he does! Greg is a great example of all of us!

I have come to realize attracting/receiving/spending/etc. money should be like breathing, eating, walking, brushing our teeth, etc. We want it, we get it, right? We have been taught differently about money but we can change that. Everything is easy when we believe it is.

Much appreciation!

I was so inspired reading this last week! From it, I felt extremely aligned to go contact a financial institution regarding a $3,000 debt that was really not meant to be mine anymore. It felt like it was not a part of who I have become. After many calls and getting directed to yet more Departments within the organization (everyone claiming this wasn't their area!), I found the "right" Department, with a lovely woman, who spoke to her Manager about my request, who agreed that they would just write this off and it would not be my responsibility anymore.

Before each call, and with each call, I felt only kindness towards everyone I spoke to. I felt no fear. I felt ease. I was glowing inside and knowing that this would be released. It was quite an effortless process, and I felt a gentle reminder of how well all is.

Thank you so much again for this inspiring thread! It provided me the opportunity to be reminded how wonderful inspired action is!

Jody said: Abraham tells us that quantum leaps are uncomfortable and they don't advise "trying" to make them. Rather they encourage working up the EGS slowly until our vibration stabilizes at each new step on the ladder. That way we won't "slide down" again, as the women who lifted the car would if she tried to do it again.

I understand that going fora quantum leap such asfrom despair to joy in one swift jump may be impossible and not even encouraged, but... I was listening to the Power of Emotions CDs today andJerry (reading Abe) said that what we're looking for is relief. If you find a downstream thought that gives you relief, you can stop there and your work is done for the dayOR you can continue on. There wasn't anything said about not proceeding so you can stabilize your vibration.

So if you're continually reaching for better and better thoughts, and we have NO limitations . . . why not keep reaching?

Toda (thanks) Jody for your insight. I am going thru some challenges in my life and my emotional scale moves during the day from depression to anger to discouragement to disappointment (best feeling thought is combination the last two) so I am just trying to keep myself or to move up there.



It would not make sense to start with depression if I can start in disappointment.

yesterday i read this thread and wanted to try this process. when i started to tell story like it is, using emotional scale i got kinda confused. asked myself what i feel about that certain thing (not money) and then my emotions were something like: positive thinking, hope, appreciation, fear, sadness, dissapointment. and then i thought: ok if i ALSO feel that negative emotions, im sure these are the real feelings cuz i dont have that certain thing in my life yet. started to write, was thinking and thinking, writing only what makes me sad about that thing (cuz i thought that was the real feeling). i felt really bad, i thought i might feel some relief, but that didnt happen. today i felt like crap, couldnt get those negative thoughts out of my head.
but to explain... now i realised i dont feel sadness about that thing. cuz i had those mixed emotions, i thought i felt fear, sadness. but in reality, i feel very good about that thing. i guess yesterday i couldnt accept this or something:?
so now i see this process was not for me. well, im not trying to say this process is bad or something... it just didnt work for me. im happy for all u guys this process has helped.
now i know, i dont feel bad about it, i feel very positive, hopefull. maybe that's the good part of starting this process, now i realised what i really feel.
really had to write this, to share this with u (yep, it feels really good)

btw. hope u understood what i wanted to tell ::LOL (not native speaker ::devil)

Thank You Greg!!! That is an amazing way to put yourself in place you want to be!

I knew today I would be in a clearer frame of mind about how I can have more than enough money in my life. You are totally right, for me, I've seen the magic of manifestation when aligned with my Inner Being so many times. I've done it to have the most amazing relationship in my reality, weight loss, the perfect job and money, I just couldn't work that same magic. I think I have been in denial about what my true feelings are about money. I love money, and for some reason feel bad cause not everyone is in this boat. I felt bad for being rich and as I write that, I can feel my Inner Being smile at the silliness of that statement. We are all here to create and if I think to hold back for the good of other people, then I am not showing the other people faith in their capability of being successful.

Thanks so much, Greg! I will definately try that exercise

I will post soon an "update" on this process and how my life, and self-worth, continues to blossom.
::woohoo

To the GOD in YOU,
Greg
Hi Greg, with the forum being down yesterday. Our exchange of posts from the days before have disappeared. I want to tell you that I have started the process you used and it's amazing what I was hiding behind that sticker! I felt like I had unblocked a drain and all the dirty water came up before running out. It felt so good to accept all that stuff! For me money, weight, romantic relationship and a job are all related to lack of self-worth. So I decided to work on feeling worthy as the umbrella issue, but then I realized that the money issue deserved to be worked on its own. I am making progress. I am being so honest and keep asking myself how am I really feeling now? It feels such relief to be true to myself.



I picked up AAIG page 303 and found the part that explains exactly what you did.

"Remember, you do not have access to emotions that are far from where you are currently vibrating. Although you may spend an entire day beating the drum of the emotion where you are, on the next day, try to establish a different set-point even if it is only a slight improvement. <snip> If you are experiencing something extremely serious, or it is something that you have been living with for many years, it is conceivable that you could spend 22 days moving up this emotional scale, each day deliberately choosing the improved emotion just above the one you are currently feeling. But 22 days from Powerlessness to Empowerment is not a long time at all when you compare it to people you know who have been in state of Insecurity, or Powerlessness for many years. <Snip> And as you gently and gradually release the resistance you have unknowingly gathered, you will begin to experience improvements in your life experiences.....in all troubling areas of your life."

As I read the thread there were some members who said that they didn't want to faithfully go up the scale to the next emotion if that didn't feel right to them. I feel that each person must feel where they are at on the scale and move on to the emotion that feels like the next logical one. Personally on the issue of self-worth I am going up each number because this is what feels downstream to me. In fact once we acknowledge where we are at we are going downstream no matter if we are still on the highest numbers and this is such a relief for me.

So from AAIG page 115
"The thing that matters the most is that you consciously reach for a feeling that is improved. The word for the feeling is not important."

Thank you Greg. I really feel this is the right way for me.

I concur, you beautiful creator!

The action is not important; the vibration which inspires it is! And the labels and particular techniques of anyone's experience can sometimes become an action-oriented focus for me.

If it feels good, it will work!

If I read something action-oriented and try it, and it feels good, then - great! I've got another way to love myself and feel good!::downstream

To the GOD in YOU,
Greg

"1. ......... Any time there is a gap between my emotional set point and my desire, there will be discomfort/pain. That is why I don't use this process on things about which I feel no discomfort. And, if I feel discomfort, it follows that there must be a gap between my emotional set point and my desire. And, for me, if I don't get honest about where I really am, I cannot move up the emotional scale; I cannotmove up tobetter feelings.

It's like the old saying, "Until we agree to suffer, there will be no end to the suffering."
We've been conditioned by society to dampen our desires as a way to ease the pain. That doesn't work!!!!! That's playing small!!!! The only thing that really works to ease the pain is to raise our vibrations to the levels of our desire! And this is the process that allows me to really raise my vibrations - not slap band-aids on them!

2.Feeling snippets of higher emotional set points amid the lower set points. Yes! When I am writing about my lower set point, I often feel flashes of hope and other better feelings. That is natural because I have been retraining my mind for a while now and I am getting used to "taking control" of my thoughts and finding/focusing on the better feeling thought!

Once again...bear in mind that I am only using this process on a topic that causes discomfort/pain/lack of manifestation. Obviously, my "real", most constant,andsteady vibration on this topic is not the better feeling thought (even though I am fully able to access the better feeling thought) or I wouldn't be needing to focus on this topic in the first place!!!

So I don't discount the better feeling thoughts. I just write about the current lower emotional set point (and the next highest one on the next day, and so on, and so on...)

And I don't go around all day dwelling on "worry" (or whatever the problematic emotional set point is) either. I am cognisant of the "worry" and I rephrase the specific topic in terms of the next highest emotional set point, but I don't make those feelings my dominant focus for the day. But, once again, if "worry" is truly where I am on a specific topic about which I feel pain/discomfort/lack of manifesting (and if I'mfeeling discomfort than there must be a gap between vibration and desire, right?) than I was carrying "worry" around with me all day anyway! Make sense?"

Hey Greg, I read your story and I'm wondering did you focus on attracting the specific amount of money that you wanted, such as the $40,000 to pay off the loan? or did you simply having the thoughts of feeling good about money and let it come to you in quantities that would match your vibration?

Thanks!

That's a great question, Guessmyname...I haven't seen LaughingHeart on the forum for a long while. Wouldn't it be nice if he gets a sudden urge to visit the forum? LaughingHeart's process - moving up the emotional scale - has done wonders for my finances! I am happy to report that me and money have a MUCH BETTER relationship now! This WORKS and it WORKS WELL!!!

Greg, this really sounds like EBT Emotional Brain Training. I just heard about it on HayHouse. It was on the latest Chritianne Northrup Show. Her guest was talking about it. I think the site is ebt.org but I'm not sure. It is a non profit and they said alot of the info was free. Sounds like you might get alot out of it.L

Hi Greg, I'm so glad I read your post, I was thinking of doing something re: money and I read your post and got inspired. Turns out I have a lot of jealousy on that subect. I never really allowed myself to think about it because I was taught that jealousy is not a good emotion to feel. So I think I've been putting a happy face on it for sure! Why do you suggest one step up the emotional scale a day? When I started ranting/writing about jealousy, I almost instantly went into Hatred/Rage, it seems the two are so closly knit together I had trouble just sticking to jealousy. What do you recommend? Did you have trouble with those? Also Hatred kind of just slips a bit into Anger.

Anyway, thanks, I had no idea I was stuck here!

Hi yearoftherabbit, I had the same experience and I decided to move on up through the EGS at the pace that felt right to me. I found that a lot of the stuff that came out while doing this exercise was old 'gunk' that had been stuck in my craw. As soon as I got them out in the open and really looked at them and saw just how false, feeble and/or dis-empowering they were, that freed me and I shifted into the next vibration very naturally.

This process is from the book Ask and it it Given and in the book Abraham advises moving through the steps day by day, which, I suppose, is why Greg did it that way as well. However, the process is of course for personal use and since each one of us is different, I think that each of us are free to move as quickly or as slowly as feels good to us. As long as we're are honest with our selves and not trying to happy face sticker stuff that might be too painful poke at.

love,
Sha

This is sooo great!
I need some help with Contentment. This is where I want to move from Worry and Frustration.
Can someone give me a few sentences, with Contentment feeling regarding money?

I remember jumping high to Optimism and Positive Expectation. But this was not stable. Now i decided to get my foot in Contentment a wait for this Universum to bring me that. After that, i will try Optimism :)

Thank you!

Dear Greg, i am glad i attracted this thread and i feel this is has come to me at the right time. My big subject here is JOB. at the moment i am without one. and i am looking for my ideal job which i want to manifest. My current emotional set point in regards to this subject ranges from fear,disappointment,worry,discouragement...you may say a mixture of all this.

As i know that the current set point is fear of not having a job, i followed your process of focussing on the next in line set point on the EGS.But as i do so, i have quickly moved on to anger hatred and rage and i am feeling much better...all this in matter of two days. wonder if iam on the right track.

Looking forward to reading your comments on this....love ya'll.

Thank you, Greg, for this inspiring thread! I've been working the process for days, I couldn't believe I was at rock bottom about money once I actually looked it square in the face. I've been scared to face the negative emotions feeling like it would pull my energy down, slapping a happy sticker on 'em. I'm already a journaler and I've been filling pages and pages every day movin' on up the scale. I am currently at Contentment trying to get to Belief. It feels like a very big step so I am rolling around in Contentment for awhile, gonna be content being content and keep reaching for the next good thought.

Thank you Greg for this classic. I have read it many times and I do not get tired of reading is. Today I felt that I needed to start moving up the emotional scale with Debt. I have come a long way. Well, I have moved up the emotional scale on other things and creating a better emotional life for myself than I have had in years. I have significantly halted the habit of creating more debt now for some time. I have been paying the "little debt" now for 6 months and have been seeing them getting smaller and many suppliers redeemed. I am a couple of months from completing those. I have more income than a couple of months ago and I am starting to purchase fun things for yself. I have moved up the emotional scale on many many topics where I was quite low on and reaped the benefits thereof.
So I turned to the big taxation and loan debt that I have more than 200k worth of it. I have been happystickering that bugger for years, three years to be exact. But I found when I really looked that I was at shame guilt and unworthiness when it came to this debt. So I started to write there. Suffice to say it was tough as was to be expected. But good to see it and write it and being able eventually to release all that crap that my inner being does not share. Thank you Greg, for your example taught me that with the change in vibration will also come a whole gamut of answers and solutions that I am simply not a vibrational match to today.
What I found when doing this process, since I do it on only the heavy topics where none of the other processes will really shift, that I can only go one or two processes a day, certainly if I am starting as low as 22 or 21. And that my emotions need time to process the negativity that is released by writing. And that for me it takes a couple of hours at least.
Another thing that I have learned from moving up the emotional scale is that I do not look for "practical solutions" on these topics until I am at least past contentment. The solutions my mind can come up with in lower vibrations have never worked for me long term, but actually sooner or later take me back to that same vibration again.
Thanks again Greg.

Firstly, thanks SO much for sharing this. I have incorporated into part of my meditation and Workshop.
I feel content about money. I feel ok. I feel like I will be taken care of. I see no point in stressing over it. I expect things to only improve. I'm excited for when that happens I daydream of my life with an abundance of money. And I know the difference between wanting it and needing it and all the vibrations in between :)

I would say at this point I am at #3 on the emotional guidance scale when it comes to the topic of money. Enthusiasm.
The next step is Passion. How do you feel passionate about money?? I'm having difficulty understanding how to raise my vibration any higher. Any thoughts or helpful comments about how you got even higher than feeling enthusiastic about your money situation?
