If you knew everything was really all right, and that it always has a happy ending, then you would not feel trepidacious about your future. Everything is really so very all right! If you could believe and trust that, then, immediately everything would automatically and instantly become all right.

So if I can get myself to “see” past the endless creditor phone calls, the long hours working a second job to male extra money to pay these creditors, the fear about my new son and being sure he is taken care of and wanting to bring him home where he belongs….and KNOW & BELIEVE that ALL is WELL then yes, there would no longer be any fear or anxiety about tomorrow, I could go through each and every day with a smile on my face and in my heart because no matter what….ALL is WELL!
Research demonstrates that many parts of the brain respond to our fantasies and fears as though they were objectively real. Take money, for example. If you imagine you are rich, you’ll feel safe and protected, even if you are poor. But if you believe that you may be in financial trouble in the future, your amygdala will release a cascade of stress neurochemicals that can damage your heart and brain—even if you are a billionaire! Imaginary fears may occasionally motivate you to make money, but they can also stop your brain from taking any action at all.
A realistic assessment of your fantasies and fears helps maintain a healthy brain, but don’t give up your dreams of future happiness and success. These, too, are essential for neurological health. For example, meditating on prosperity makes you feel good because it stimulates the reward centers of your brain. But it’s not enough to propel your brain to take action. To do this, you’ll need to add several “ingredients” to generate a winning formula for success.
First, create a prosperity *plan*: Enter a deep contemplative state, and invite your subconscious to select a goal that you genuinely desire. Next, write down three initial steps that will bring you closer to your goal. Circle the one that you can do today; then meditate on this plan, knowing that it will stimulate the motivational circuits in your brain. Decide when to do it, and mark the time in your appointment book. At the end of the day, write down your progress, large or small, and savor the feeling of success. The neurochemicals that will be released will deepen the quality of your sleep.
In the morning, meditate on the next step that will bring you closer to your goal, repeating the steps above. You’ll quickly retrain your brain, transforming the “labor” of success into a pleasurably spiritual pursuit.

I used to be able to dream & fantasize very vividly and could really get into them but so much has happened these past couple of years that I have seemed to have lost that ability. When I try now the images feel flat and unreal and therefore quickly fade away into the background noise or if I can have that moment that I am able to visualize good “something” snaps me back to reality. I guess when dreams have been realized but as quickly as they manifested and I was enjoying the moment those dreams were just as quickly taken from me. So I think this has played a part in my diminished visualization abilities or ”feeling” them as real. I cannot continue to allow the failures of the past to hold me back from what my Heart hungers for. I must break free of the shackles of the past and embrace the life I desire!
Live as if your dreams are already manifest and they will be #quotes #kristopher
Came across this Twitter post from Kristopher Raphael (@krisraphael) and it is ironic how I happened to come across this as I was thinking about the things I wish I had or the things I wish I could do but the lack of funds prevents me from having the freedom to do and have these things. So this message serves as a good reminder of how I SHOULD be thinking and feeling and not keep feeding the ”Lack & Limitation” monster. Also on my mind today was how much I am missing the laptop that was stolen from me, and did my thoughts of lack play into it being stolen and why the laptop that I bought in memory of my late mother and the one that had my projects I was working on and my photos. And was thinking if I thought about what I would be doing if I still had it and believed and felt the way I would if I still had it would the way open for its return or its replacement? (of course replacement would not replace the lost photos or work) I guess its the upcoming holiday season that has me thinking this way with being bombarded with ads & specials for electronics and computers. So the timing of this message again serves as my daily reminder to how I need to be thinking and feeling and not about all the lack laughing in my face!
There is nothing about your physical awareness that connects you more to the Non-Physical aspect of your Being than that of your breathing.
Many assume that the process of breathing is only about your physical nature, but that is not the case. The process of breathing is much more than an essential function of your physical body. Indeed, it is the flowing of Spirit to you, and through you. That is the reason that when the focusing of Spirit through your physical body ceases, your breathing ceases, also.
Our meditation experience will induce a convergence of beneficial aspects for you, for as you relax into the natural rhythm of perfect breathing while hearing these spoken words, the Vibration of your physical being will gently surrender to the Vibrational frequency of your Source, and you will become one with your Source, inside the Vortex.
Through the hearing of our words in your relaxed state of allowing, you will allow the gentle tuning of your Vibrational frequency to match the frequency of your Source.
This will not be an exercise of effort or trying, but instead an exercise of releasing and allowing…gently allowing yourself to be who-you-really-are.
Excerpted from the Getting into the Vortex Guided Meditation CD and User Guide # 272
Listening to these CD’s are helpful is trying to focus more on my breathing and slowing down for a moment from the stresses and demands of the day to try to re-connect with who I am really am BUT along with the stresses and demands of the day of working two jobs I most of the time find myself falling asleep. Which is not always a bad thing, because the body does need rest, but I would also would like to benefit of that moment of Oneness with the Source and making that much needed connection so that a channel can be opened to what is desired as well as “listening” to that still voice deep withing that is now always “heard” through the background noises of the day to day demands and the mental dialog (usual negative mental dialog) instead of STOPPING, BREATHING, and LISTENING so that connection to Source can be made and maintained at least for some period of time instead of those fleeting moments here and there.
From The Secret Daily Teachings
Happiness is a state of being, and comes from the inside of you. By the law of attraction you must become on the inside what you want on the outside.
The Secret… bringing joy to billions
Again, emphasis on “feeling good” and again something that is proving to be very challenging for me, it is like part of me does not want to “feel good”! Part of me does not want to get or feel excited or enthusiasm about anything. It is just like I am robot going through the motions, the day to day routine, and I have got to find some way to break this cycle, and break free from what is tying to hold me back from allowing me to “feel good”; to really be able to laugh and REALLY feel the good feeling of a good laugh! And I must not allow the daily reminders of what I do NOT want to deter me or hold me back from what is desired! I have to remember that the “What I do not wants” are serving to show me and point me to the “What I DO wants!”
Think of this random Universe where everything is possible. The organizational skills belong to Law of Attraction. If you will relax and allow Law of Attraction to do the organization and the managing, then you can spend your time doing the things that please you.

This is where the “Letting Go & Letting God” phrase comes to mind. So much time and energy seems to spent (wasted) running around trying to ”fix” things and putting out fires leaving little to no time nor energy to LIVE and enjoy life! I will admit, the Letting Go part is very difficult and requires much Faith! And relaxing??? Things I know that I need to work on…..
My Most Important Relationship Is With My Source… There is no relationship of greater importance to achieve than the relationship between you, in your physical body, right here and now, and the Soul/Source/God from which you have come. If you tend to that relationship, first and foremost, you will then, and only then, have the stable footing to proceed into other relationships. Your relationship with your own body; your relationship with money; your relationship with your parents, children, grandchildren, the people you work with, your government, your world . . . will all fall swiftly and easily into alignment once you tend to this fundamental, primary relationship first.

The Vortex, Where the Law of Attraction Assembles All Cooperative Relationships # 270
Tend to Source first and all else will fall into place….
We want to help you regain clarity about your individual power. Everyone has it. No one can ever take it away from you. No one can ever do anything “bad” to you. No one can assert into your experience. Everything, without exception, comes only by your individual invitation to it. Do you understand the process of asking? When you give something your attention and it becomes your dominant vibration relative to the subject—that is your asking. So, deliberate creating is not so much about looking out into the world and saying, “Oh, there are things that are good that I want to create or attract into my experience, and there are things that are bad that I don’t want to create or attract into my experience.” Deliberate creating is more about deliberate allowing. Deliberate allowing is more like deliberate vibration.

I need to start revoking some invitations, have way too many unwanted (experiences) guests.
Think Your Troubles Away is the third book in a new series of writings of Ernest Holmes from early issues of Science of Mind magazine that I now being made available. I had started reading the first book in this series ( ) during the beginning of my trip but seem to be drawn to this book especially in light of the “financial challenges” that plagued me during this trip. I already knew I was going in with a limited budget as well as that I was traveling before payday so was already traveling with little cash in my pocket, something that I do not like doing. So was going to have to delay certain things on my trip until payday. With working two jobs I was expecting one paycheck on a Friday and the second to hit on Saturday. Well, the part time job paycheck hit early on Thursday which I was happy about…BUT the real paycheck did not hit on Saturday which of course started the chain reaction of fear and anxiety. But when I discovered this fact was unfortunately in the market trying to pay for my purchases and the card was declined. I then checked my balance and it was $0! Apparently even though I had gotten paid from my part time job a bill that was not due until that Monday posted early, along with a few other things and took all that I had gotten paid. Of course had the regular paycheck posted this would not have been an issue. So did the shuffle of what funds I had in Savings into my Checking account and went to an ATM, again card declined, tried two other ATM’s same results. Well, now was the long walk back to the apartment because there was no money for the bus. Contacted my bank and found they their Fraud Alert had blocked my account because I was using my card in another country. (I have traveled and used my card here numerous times before, why NOW the Fraud Alert) So now had to get this cleared up and my account unblocked.
Well, I realized the reason my check had not posted early was due to that Friday being a Federal holiday and thus why the part time check posted early and the real paycheck posting late. (actually still early as payday is actually the following Thursday, but always posts the Saturday before unless there is a holiday in there)
The fear & anxiety does not end here, as I awoke with anxiety spike that another auto-deduction was going to post Sunday and needed to get in and cancel otherwise would again be without enough money to go back to the market.
Went to the ATM got the necessary funds to gl to yhe market and hopefully get through the day. Why is it you tell someone you only have “X” amount of money and they just say “okay” is a dismissive manner and continue to shovel things into the cart? So then there is the putting the important stuff on the belt first watching the amount get higher and higher.
Then there is the high dollar purchase that was already decided on yet no one consulted with me to SEE if I had that much available to spend. Its easy to spend someone else’s money and not think about what expenses they may have.
Then just to make things interesting on the last day found a fraudulent purchase made which brought me to $0 again! I only knew about this because of an overdraft alert email from my bank.
Now, I come back to the title of this post and book I am reading with renewed enthusiasm and interest! Because I have a LOT of financial troubles that require thinking away! I spent more than I had intended but knew I would need to buy some things for my new son….and know there will be more things needed over the coming months along with playing catch-up on the bills that have not yet been paid along with fees for documents that need to be filed for my son AND in the middle of all this SAVE money for a return trip. I am REALLY trying to keep the fear & anxiety in check because I know such fearful thoughts and feelings will only produce more of the same and during this trip I have proven the law can work unfortunately negatively! But regardless whether negative or positive the Law works, but I have allowed myself to become so conditioned to always ”feel” fear & anxiety & constant endless worry! Thus I need to “flip the script” & turn things around in my life and ”Think My Troubles Away” instead of thinking them to me and attracting more and more of what I do NOT want! (like just now getting email saying my credit score has taken another ”hit”, not the way to start the day) But all that I am experiencing NOW is due to past wrong fearful thinking. But RIGHT thinking along with “feeling good” will be that drop of clean water into the bucket of dirty water, eventually each drop will clear the dirty (undesired) water….
I will add more thoughts along with exerts from the book later….
I was both shocked and saddened to hear the news of Jerry’s passing. I knee he had been absent from past live seminars that I had the pleasure of watching online as well as the absence of his trademark “ringing of the bell” that started every seminar. I know it must have been an adjustment for Esther to have to travel alone to seminar after seminar but to now have to travel the path alone is and will be another challenging adjustment. I have never (yet) had the pleasure of attending one of the seminars in person and get to meet Jerry & Esther in person but I felt I already know them just from their warm and amusing dialog during the seminars. There is a site dedicated to Jerry, I have yet to visit and see the site as I am still on travel from seeing and spending time with my new son, and it was difficult to have to leave and travel home without him but during our time together I would lay next to him as he slept and talk to him telling him how special he is and what a great and successful man that he is going to grow up to be. Thus now it is now more than ever important that I go forward and blaze the trail for my son and be a Living example for him to follow and grow and not make the (many) mistakes his father made and the wasted time wandering down the wrong paths or the paths I allowed ”others” to push me down wanting me to live “their” lives and not allowing (or wanting) me to follow my OWN path. I hope to have him with me soon for the environment he is currently in is not the best. But I am getting off topic here and will address this more in later posts. Below is a copy of the email sent out with news of Jerry’s passing.
Dear, dear Friends,
Our sweet Jerry made his transition into Nonphysical last Friday. How sweet the Vortex is feeling to him today!
Jerry said to me when we came together over 30 years ago that given the difference in our ages that it was likely “that I will cut out on you early,” to which I replied, “I don’t mind.” His joy of life and continual new discovery of purpose kept his life feeling fresh and we shared such joyous eagerness for life.
Over the years, Abraham has consistently insisted that there is no death. Again and again they have reminded us that there is only life and more life and more life. It has taken me some time to understand this, and I honestly must say I have not yet fully come to terms with it, but I do believe that in what we are calling Jerry’s death he is discovering the next logical step of life that Abraham has always been talking about. And at times I am catching a glimpse of the bigness of what Jerry is feeling and while I am still pretty mad at him for not sticking around longer to surprise and delight me in all the ways he has been doing throughout our 30 years together I accept fully that the next logical step of joyous life for Jerry was to be found in his re-emergence into Nonphysical.
Since 1985 it has been Jerry and Esther and Abraham and I believe with everything that I am that that has not changed. I know that Jerry will continue to be the third powerful point of the triad of Energy that makes up the Abraham experience and I am certain that his new vantage point will be, as it has always been, of advantage to us all.
I know for sure that Jerry will help me, in time, release my own personal resistance to physical death, because I will not be able to maintain that resistance and also play easily with him. And my desire to continue not only my Abraham experience but also my Jerry experience I am certain he will be the catalyst to help me do what Abraham has been trying to help us all do all along.
Once again, Jerry is out there leading the way for me. But the difference this time is that I must find the way. I am not there yet, but it is my absolute promise to myself that I will find the way, because it is the most natural thing in the world to do and because Jerry has provided for me the reason to do it.
I am eager about what is ahead and while I cannot begin to explain or even imagine the details of how it is all going to play out, I am certain that it will be fun.
I am such a fortunate girl, to have been able to play with Jerry and Abraham and all of you for so many wonderful years and I am so eager to continue doing more of the same for many more years to come. I feel certain right now that not only has nothing gone wrong, but things are going especially right. It will be different, for sure, but it will also be very, very good.
I’m feeling such love for you all, and for Abraham and most of all for Jerry. And as I have said to him a thousand or more times through the years, “Well isn’t life just a kick in the pants?”
Well, from seeing how long Jerry & Esther have been doing this I now believe that it was one of their recordings that I had heard back in mid-to late 80’s and back then did not know anything about them. So who would think that many years later I would discover them again. What is funny is that when I had discovered who Jerry & Esther were I realized that I had had their book Ask and It is Given sitting on my shelf still unread except for the one section talking about the Checkbook Game. (something I need to get back into the habit of doing amongst other things)
Jerry – you will be missed but know you have just moved further up along the path before us.
Esther – I know being without Jerry, your partner for so many years and in so many things will be difficult but thoughts and prayers are sent to you and hope to one day have the pleasure of being able to attend a seminar (or two) in person.
Thank you to both of you and to Abraham!
