This used to be me, B.A., Before Abraham. I thought it was due to the fact that I’m Irish and could turn any serene moment into a Fourth of July flare up. Or that I grew up in Manhattan, the Mecca of Reactionism. But then I met Abraham and they taught me that it’s none of the above. That’s just the bullshit blah blah I told myself, which completely took any responsibility for my actions off of me and laid it squarely on my DNA, and the Lat/Long of my upbringing.
When I attracted The Teachings of Abraham into my life, they grabbed me by the gut and heart, in a nice way lol. They showed me that habits aren’t chronic; rather, they’re as ephemeral as we choose to make them.
Well, that’s a relief, but how do I retire my pugilistic tendencies for a calmer life of equanimity and ease?
Abe’s go-to answer refers to the subject of Deliberate Creation, and the B-Side to that which is, Sloppy Focusing. Hmmmm. So what’s the difference?
Deliberate Creation is just what it sounds like it is, Deliberately Creating and Focusing on what makes you feel good. Sloppy Focusing is when you allow all your thoughts to flow unchecked; the good, the bad, and the ugly. And since most of us have been sloppy focusers all our lives, those crappy thoughts have built up quite a head o’ steam (momentum) and soon very soon, no matter how great we felt at one point during the day, they take hold of us and wrestle us to the ground.
So how does one become a Supreme Deliberate Creator?
It’s as easy as inculcating a new habit into your daily routine. The morning routine Abe espouses, and this is also Esther’s daily routine, is to take the time each morning to firmly establish the foundation of your day by Appreciating Immediately Upon Awakening. Then, before you open your email or start a spate of conversations with anyone about anything, MEDITATE for 15 minutes. Thus stretching out the re-calibration time that you amassed while sleeping. After which, when you’re in that lovely, post meditation bliss, grab a fave notebook and pen and begin Writing Lists of Positive Aspects, Lists of Appreciation, Create Focus Wheels, Write The Story of Your Life as you’d like it to play out, Create the day you’d like to unfold before you. etc. In other words, do whatever you can to give depth and breadth to that glorious, In-da-Vortex Feeling…🌀
My reaction time, B.A., used to be so fast that I’d lament, “How the hell can I not react, or stop mid-reaction, when I don’t even know I’m reacting until it’s all done?” Haha!
But Now, with my new Happy Habit of Deliberately Creating like The Badd Ass Human I’ve come to be, I can feel myself start to turn to the dark side, so I can easily and gingerly pivot toward the light and fluffy side of the street. No harm, no foul! Just straight up Edifying, Electrifying, Emancipating, Exhilarating, Clarifying, Deliberate Creating!!
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it Creator. And I know you’ve heard these words before, but I really, really mean it, “If I can do it, anyone can!!”
Change only happens when you commit to it. And isn’t a life of freedom, good feelings, and fabulous manifestations worth a half hour a day? I’m thinking, that’s short front end loading to achieve the life of your dreams. You with me…😎~*
