Tonight I feel inspired to share another Abraham-Hicks video. I searched Abraham-Hicks then clicked on videos, and I was drawn to this one called “Things you must to everyday”. It’s funny because I have listened to this video at least once before, probably more, but I didn’t remember the action steps that were mentioned. This validates to me the importance of repetition when reading or listening to anything.
The first thing Abraham talks about here is that if they were in our physical shoes they would decide to be lazy. This concept is interesting because it’s the opposite of some of the things I mentioned in my last video I posted, where I talked about the value of hard work and discipline. I feel like I attracted this video to help reconcile some seemingly contradictory beliefs in my mind about hard work and action.
The basic reason Abraham gives for being lazy is that in doing so you allow your energetic grid to fill in with all the things you are wanting. The way I understand it is that you stop spinning your wheels in this state of ‘laziness’ and just tune into allowing your energy to get into the perfect place to receive.
So often we take action from a place of feeling the lack of what we are wanting, and in these circumstances our action is futile because we’re actually cutting ourselves off from receiving what we are desiring when we’re focusing on lack. This kind of ‘hard work’ is not the kind of hard work that I believe is productive or helpful in any way, and this kind of ‘hard work’ also feels really unpleasant because psychically we know that it would be a lot better if we just stopped doing so much work, and just did more ‘lazy allowing’. I would argue that doing nothing but feeling good, is actually better than taking action from a place of feeling the lack of what you are wanting to create, because in taking action from this place of lack you are creating more lack.
So when is ‘hard work’ a good thing? Hard work is a good thing when you are already in vibrational alignment with what you are wanting, and it actually feels really really good to take action because you psychically know that all the action you are doing is taking you closer and closer to your goal. In this kind of ‘hard work’ the action is actually more fun than reaching the goal. You know whether or not you’re in alignment with your goal by the way you feel about the action you are taking. If it feels bad, that means more ‘laziness’ and allowing would be beneficial to get you all lined up with what you are wanting, but if it feels good, then keep on going, and go go go go go get what you are wanting.
**Update: I just reread this and I feel like it’s also important to note that there are negative and positive forms of this laziness. If laziness is a way of distracting yourself from feeling, numbing things out of your life, or escaping being present, then this is not very productive; however, the laziness I feel Abraham is referring to is the kind that involves taking time to focus on your own vibration, and being present, and doing simple activities that genuinely make you feel great. It’s quite the opposite of what many of us typically associate with being lazy. A lot of the time it can take discipline just to dwell in this positive version of laziness, because we have habits that keep us totally distracted, or numb from focusing on our energy, from feeling good, or from being present. Having discipline in tending to your own vibration is so worth it, because it is just so soul nourishing. **
I was going to write some of the main points that stood out to me when listening to this video tonight, but I ended up writing almost all of it down on white paper with a blue pen because every word is amazing. Instead of writing down the whole thing in this post, I will just write down the four suggested daily activities because these are so simple yet feel incredibly powerful. It feels like these actions are beneficial no matter where you are vibrationally; if you’re in your sweet spot, they can amplify your powerful output, and if you’re feeling anything negative they can help to raise your vibration. Also even if you’re living in the sweet spot, sometimes blocks can come along and temporarily throw us off, so these action steps outlined below are great ways to get you back into alignment and on track with your radiant excitement for creating what you want.
Four things Abraham suggests doing everyday:
1) Meditate for 15 minutes every day.
2) Go outside no matter what the weather, and we’d move around in it in appreciation of this planet. We would look up and around, and we would find things to acknowledge, and we would talk about them right out loud …
3) We would buy a notebook, we would call it ‘my book of positive aspects’, and we would fill at least 3, 4, 5 is even better, pages of positive aspects. Five different subjects, and write the positive aspects of it, training your vibration into that upward place. (This powerful process is described in the book Ask And It Is Given by Abraham-Hicks)
4) We would look upward and outward, it’s best if you do it outside or standing at the window, and we would acknowledge that there are universal forces that are focused right at you. We would acknowledge by calling it by name, if you have a name that you like, and we would say “I acknowledge that I am the object of your positive attention and I’m appreciating your continual gaze on behalf of my well being, and today no matter where I am, no matter where I am going, no matter what I am doing, and no matter who I am doing it with, I will be in conscious awareness that you too are there with me, appreciating me, supporting me, assisting me, acknowledging me, inspiring me, guiding me, having fun with me, acknowledging me, supporting me, assisting me, inspiring me, helping me, guiding me, aware of me, loving me, showing me, inspiring me, guiding me, helping me, uplifting me, showing me” … get into an endless loop of that acknowledgment and watch what begins to happen in your life as soon as this day.
I am making a commitment to doing this fourth activity before I go to bed tonight, and I’m so excited to really feel the truth of it in my soul.
