"You get what you think about whether you want it or not" Abraham

"If you want something to dissipate, don't talk about it. Don't discuss it. Don't bring it up. Don't think about it."
Abraham-Hicks

You are what you think, definitely not what you eat, but that's another blog.

The thoughts that keep you up at night, robbing you of your beauty sleep, they are exactly what you are drawing to you. 

The disagreement with your brother, the critical performance review, the entire family dynamics of the moment, anything that you are constantly mulling over, obsessing about, and talking about is manifesting into the life you are living.

"You want to begin to pay attention to what you're saying yes to and say it more often, and what you're saying no to and say it less often because you get what you think about whether you want to or not." Abraham-Hicks

Don't allow your stressful thoughts to dominate your life, it is a waste of time to worry or stress and it will manifest into illness. Concentrate, instead, on whatever makes you happy, fills you with joy, and delete the thoughts that don't.

"Find something that makes you happy and think about that." AH

All of your power is in your ability to see things in a way that keeps you feeling good. Abraham

Don't try to convince anybody of anything. This debating over conditions and the rightness and wrongness of things is such a waste of Your Life Experience. Abraham

You've got to get past caring what anybody else is thinking about you. AH

There is no need to prove anything to anyone with your words. Let that which you are, that which you are living by your clear example to uplift others. Abraham-Hicks

More good advice from Abraham-Hicks (www.abraham-hicks.com) about letting others be who they are, you being yourself, and learning not to care how others perceive you...very important life lessons.

"What other people think of you is none of your business." Regina Brett

Most of us tend to take on 'stuff' that is none of our concern and obsess about it ad nauseam.

'Other people' are just that... other people. They are not you, they don't look like you, they don't act like you and they don't think like you.  They will say what they say and do what they do... They speak their opinion from their experience, it doesn't mean it is true... it is an opinion... People talk - that' it. You can't let it bother you, your opinion of you is the only one that counts. 

YOU can't tell anybody anything either. No one really wants your opinion, unless solicited, and usually even then, so don't waste your time. Be an example. Mind your own business and live your own life.

Imagine if we obsessed about the things we LOVED about ourselves.

What a novel idea!

We all spend a lot of time complaining about certain parts of ourselves, how they don't quite measure up to the norm, or to our expectations. We are our own worst critics. Not only are we displeased with our appearance, but we also put ourselves down concerning our personality, disposition, mentality, or anything at all. Are we just trying to beat everyone to it, making sure that no one gets to us first? It's very strange that we allow ourselves to beat ourselves up. If we don't love ourselves, how do we expect other to love us?

We have put ourselves down for long enough, what if we become our own cheerleaders? I'm not talking narcissistic, simply some self-love. Wouldn't you like to have the time you spent worrying about your fat thighs back and use it to compliment yourself on your lovely feet, your prowess at crosswords, your skill in the kitchen, or maybe even in the bedroom? 

You know you have many, many great qualities. You know people seek you out, just to be there when you laugh, you are amazing. I am not just saying that... take a look around you, how many people are there for you, love to be around you, seek you out? You are someone to love, so why don't you try it?

Try obsessing about everything you love about yourself, everything you are proud of until it becomes a habit. Then you can start to work on those things you find less than perfect. Eventually, all of you, mentally, physically and emotionally will be receiving love. Just imagine the difference it will make in your life when you obsess about the things you love about yourself instead of hating them.

"It's not reality that people struggle with. It's the beliefs and values they set up as a preferred substitute to reality that causes grief."

Most things are not what they seem..... 

When you perceive something as overwhelming, something that you simply cannot comprehend, your beliefs system will dispatch the standard response to the forefront, and you'll react to accordingly. You have been indoctrinated since birth with beliefs that may not be valid in your life today. You are automatically reacting to stimuli as you have been programmed, with no forethought whatsoever. You are accepting a preferred substitute to reality to avoid what is.

Also, there are times when it's not what is actually happening at this moment that you are avoiding, but, it's what you think should be happening or what you wish was happening. Either way, life is happening NOW, and whatever is happening IS, you can't change it because by the time you react you are in a new NOW.... acceptance is the only way.

If you wake up every morning and think the thoughts you want to think then nothing can keep you from anything.  Abraham

You can choose the thought that makes you worry or the thought that makes you happy; the things that thrill you, or things that worry you. You have the choice. A.H.

Joy is The Ultimate Trophy Abraham

I know I keep on pounding this drum... but from the feedback I receive, many of you don't REALLY believe what is written here. It seems that a great number of you do not believe that you are in charge of your own lives, that you are really making things happen by your thoughts alone.

"You're picky about the car you drive
You're picky about what you wear
You're picky about what you put in your mouth
Be pickier about what you think."
Abraham-Hicks

If you are unsatisfied with your life, you might want to try monitoring the thoughts in your head. Most notions that consume you are just nonsense, unimportant, stress-causing invaders. Choose a happy thought to take their place and see if you don't find life a little easier!

"Choose your thoughts wisely for they are the energy that creates your life." Abraham-Hicks

Aren't you willing to let go of the pettiness of physical life that has been bogging you down and holding you back?  Abraham

The best service that you could be to anyone is to "get in there and love life". Abraham

When you understand that you control the events of your personal experience by the power of your thought, then your focused attention to that which you want will always bring forth excited emotions. Abraham

Love is your Natural State of being if you are not pushing against something unwanted. Abraham

"When you understand that YOU control the events of your personal experience...." Isn't that a fabulous statement? You are in charge, not all those authority figures that you assumed had control, but YOU. 

If you don't like the life you have.... CHANGE IT. 

You can have whatever life you want. You don't have to live the life that was chosen for you. You don't have to do what is expected of you, AND you don't have to live someone else's life. You are here for a reason, and in order to fulfill your mission, you need to be yourself. This is your only chance to be YOU and there is no one more qualified for the job. 

"Be yourself, everyone else is already taken." Oscar Wilde

"Love is not possessiveness; many people think that's what love is" you possess somebody totally. To possess somebody is to destroy all possibility of love."

Osho

You don't own your husband or wife, they are not your property. Just because you marry someone does not obligate them to do whatever you want. This is a choice each person makes, to delight and/or please the other, it is not an expectation or obligation. You are not in charge of them, they are a partner in your life, you work through life together. 

Usually, there is a mutual love and respect with the other person in the union, but they are still a separate entity. Marriage may make you a family, but it does not make one person out of the two of you. It's quite presumptuous, isn't it, to think you can control or possess another adult?

If you think of your spouse as a possession, you may be surprised when you have a rebellion on your hands. No person can be considered as property, a chattel, owned or YOURS. This person has chosen to spend their life with you in a harmonious, loving way, and you will surely ruin it if you think of them as your property. This is not love.

Love is unconditional, there are no other requirements, it's freely given from the heart. Love is a gift.

Love is a Rose - Linda Ronstadt
"Love is a rose but you better not pick it
Only grows when it's on the vine
Handful of thorns and you'll know you've missed it
Lose your love when you say the word MINE."
