Category: Appreciation



Abraham says, “Get out of bed on the right Vibration.”

Great idea Abe, but how does a Conscious, Deliberate Creator do that? So glad you asked… Begin by Appreciating before your eyes even open; your comfy bed, the day ahead, your relaxed body, your delicious sleep state, the sexy human and/or warm animal beside you, etc.

And then, meditate for 15 minutes to consciously align with your Vortex and Inner Being. I LOVE Abraham’s 15 minute meditations which prompt me to breath deeply and allow me to Fall Up Into My Vortex seamlessly and with ease. Click here for Abraham-Hicks Guided Meditation.

And finally, cap it all off by writing lists of appreciation, or focus wheels, or love letters to humans and /or your non-physical posse; which all serves to prolong your time in communication with your Inner Being and Alignment. Thereby establishing a deeper, firmer Vibrational Beachhead from which to blastoff into your day.

That’s it, and all it takes is one half hour of your time (as Abraham says, “15 minutes of visualization is more productive than 16 hours of hard labor!”) And now you have a juicy, high vibing foundation from which to launch into the waiting day. I do it every single morning, it’s akin to brushing my teeth and it makes ALL the difference in the world. But don’t take my word for it, give it a whirl and get ready Creator, your Life is going to upgrade right before your very eyes! Haha! Just sayin’…~*

in-the-depths-of-winter-i-finally-learnedWhen I attracted The Teachings of Abraham into my life, I learned that there need not be any more winters of my soul. I learned through my experience and my Understanding of The Law of Attraction, that I could use it to my advantage. I could gather more of what I desire to me and vibrate at a level that leaves what I don’t dig, don’t enjoy, don’t want to perpetuate where it belongs, outside of my purview. I learned that Contrast is the catalyst to my expansion, not my enemy. I learned that I am constantly and eternally guided by my Ultimate Homie, My Inner Being. I came to understand that my Internal Guidance System is My Herald, My Guide, My Indicator announcing to me through my Feelings, where I stand in each moment on the scale of Attunement and Alignment. I came to realize that Mastery of My Life lies within my ability to Focus on what appeals, what gives me pleasure, what brings me joy, and to leave the rest behind.

I came to recognize my Prowess and Genius. I came to accept that I am a God having a Human Experience. I came to Know that wanting More is a good thing and to do it early and often! That Desire is the Stimulant to my Expansion. That my Expectations set the stage for my life’s story. That I can Be, Do, or Have Anything my heart desires. That Source Knows What I Want down to the most minute details. That My Job is to live fully, love fully, express unabashedly and leave the details, the finer points, the specifics and How-To’s to the Experts; my Non-Physical Posse of Guides and Mentors.

I came to the Awareness That this Life is so much more than I can see and that it is in the Subtle Realm of Feelings, where Guidance and Magic Dwells. That I am a Supreme Translator of Energy, and that I do it easily and with aplomb. And that the better I Become at The Mastery of Energetic Translation and Transmutation, the more of an Adept at The Art of Living The Grandest Life I can Imagine, I Become.

Yup, that about sums it up. So I’ll be off now, to follow the champagne and caviar trail of Feelings and Inspiration that leads me on my path of Least Resistance/Most Allowing to the numerous pots of gold that await my discovery. Hasta Luego My Homies, until next time…~*

creator, what are you broadcastingGreetings Creator! Yesterday I heard a clip from the Cancun Land Cruise that caused me to stop and take pause. In my world, this means that my Posse of Dead Geniuses are whispering in my ear, “Listen up gurl, this ones for you!” Here’s the gist…

There were two hot seaters back to back, the first a fellow with chronic back pain, although his life was cherry in every other way. And the second man experiencing what he referred to as being “blindsided” by funky experiences/people when all else in his life is going really well.

Abe’s answer to both of these men was the same, the upshot…

We seem to think, us fabulous humans, that it’s the big stuff that gives us pain or hurtles us out of da V and across galaxies, but it’s not! It’s actually the small stuff; Our Thoughts, our Consistent Negative Thoughts, that we unconsciously entertain all throughout the day! By continuously defaulting to this negative place, these low hanging vibes have built up a head o’ steam/momentum, which then ATTRACTS TO US, negative manifestations, people, and events into our experience.

Here’s the question Abe wants us to consistently ask ourselves…

CREATOR, WHAT ARE YOU BROADCASTING?

We know that as Energetic Being’s we are Transmitters and Receivers of Energy, right? And we Know that The Universe – The Law of Attraction/LOA – responds to our Now Vibration (spoken or not), right? So we can logically conclude, that even if we are star pupils of a daily meditation practice, appreciating, list of positive aspects, etc., that entertaining any negative thoughts, will unfavorably impact our lives, manifesting in a variety of unsavory ways, right?

So here’s the easy breezy answer! Vigilance my darlings, that’s it! That’s all it takes! Become Aware of those thoughts, and pivot like the G you are before they gather any momentum (before 17 seconds). I love synonyms, so allow me to share a few that are pertinent here:

BE Attentive, alert, on the look out, on your energetic toes, sharp, on it, observant, keep your energetic eyes peeled, notice how you feel, check in, self-regulate, emotionally inquire…

In other words Creator, be your own Energetic GateKeeper! It’s up to you to become hyper-aware and notice the moment you become negative in thought, word, or deed! Nothing just happens; We Students and Teachers of The Teachings of Abraham, Know This to be Truth (as unpalatable as this might seem to us at times, admitting we ATTRACTED this moment or sequence of moments, through our sloppy focus and thinking!). Again, THE ENERGY THAT YOU BROADCAST, either consciously or unconsciously, CALLS TO YOU/ ATTRACTS THE NEGATIVE ENERGY THAT BECOMES YOUR PURVIEW! In other words, It’s Always An Inside Job! It is Law!

I’ve been enjoying a life of synchronicity this past two months surrounding an inspired move that I am undertaking from Danville, California to Rosarito, Baja, Mexico, that can only be described as superfluous, exceptional, without par! So what the hell have I been doing that threw me down, down, down, into the dark passages and Circles of Dante’s Inferno? Well, let me tell you, cause that’s how I do it, full fucking transparency, I became emotionally intrigued and involved with Politics!! Oh Gods, it’s almost embarrassing to admit, even to My Tribe.

7 years ago I tuned out, on advice from a fellow Aber, and have never been happier not knowing what the hell was going on. But then Bernie Sanders came around. And me? I’m a Manhattan girl and he’s a sweet, honest, thoughtful, engaged Jewish man from Brooklyn. And well, I got hope!! And along with that hope I got a ton of other shit, like negativity and hate mongering the likes of which, I don’t remember ever having heard/ felt before.

Clearly, I’m not evolved enough to separate the wheat from the chaff! LOL. I thought I could dip my toe in there for a little while and just bask in Bernie’s message, which appeals to me a lot, and leave the rest on the side of the road, where it belonged. But lo and behold, I’m human and I became transfixed like a moth to a flame!

So hear me now fellow Aber’s as I proclaim that from this moment forward, now and forever more, I will never, never, never ever, never fucking ever, ever never, become engaged in politics or news events again! I am dusting off my rose-colored glasses, and fully embracing my PollyAnna approach to this life, my see no evil, hear no evil, feel no evil stance in this world! I stand with my legs astride and my arms open wide, high atop Mount Olympus with my fellow Gods and Goddesses as I chant our Mantra, All is Well, All is Well, All Is Always, Eternally Well!

I can’t change anything when I’m slogging it out down in the trenches. If I want to be happy and highflying and wish this state of Well-Being For All Being’s on this planet, and I do, then my work is to stay a loft, to stay floating downstream while entertaining only those thoughts which are pleasant and uplifting.

Wow! I feel better already. So yeah this might be a long post, but who else can I be this honest with, if not you, my Comrades of Knowing? My Appreciation for the contrast I have recently enjoyed (and I don’t use that word lightly), knows no bounds. Because once again, I have taken a Bounce that has landed me firmly, lovingly, and without hesitation, in the driver seat of my own luscious life! Tuning Out and Tuning Up, Up, and Away my delightful Homies! You feel me? I so Know you do…😎~*

Don't be upset by the results you didn't get

We have a saying in Alcoholics Anonymous that I believe dovetails beautifully with The Teachings of Abraham, and it is…

“IT WORKS IF YOU WORK IT!”

Now the word Work can be seen as the pejorative, but in Abe Land, our Work is to have fun, relax, be present, cease worrying; stop talking, reading, and writing negative blah-blah, and do what makes us feel good. Not exactly society’s definition, which calls to mind slogging it out, drudgery, ungrateful bosses, clients and the like.

So here’s my thought for today Creator, Abraham tells us constantly and consistently that our Work is to do what I have mentioned above, but there is more. What we are all itching to Achieve are the 2 A’s: Alignment and Allowing. And what are the quickest paths to this personal success? I’m so glad you asked, here goes…

1. A DAILY MEDITATION PRACTICE. Preferably in the morning upon awakening to tee you up for the day ahead. Only 15 minutes and you’ve elevated and kept your Vibration smack dab in The Vortex.

2. DEEP BREATHING. Bathe your body in prana, life force energy, whenever you think about it. I LOVE the Abe Meditations as they cue you to breathe throughout their 15 minute meditation.

3. PRE-PAVE LIKE A MUTHA! This is your Life’s Outline, your Script of the day ahead, the next segment of your day, and/or your life! It’s great to do this after your meditation to set the tone for the day ahead. While driving, or whenever you think about it.

4. WRITE LISTS OF APPRECIATION!!! Appreciation is Love! And what’s Love? Only THE MOST POWERFUL FORCE IN THE UNIVERSE HOMIE!! Use it to your advantage, early and often.

5. DRINK LOTS AND LOTS OF WATER! Abe assures us that our bodies will assimilate to this extra amount of liquid. Meaning you won’t spend your life in the potty, and this I can attest too!

5. COMMIT TO BEING HAPPY DAILY, from the moment you open your eyes and for as long as possible. This gets easier with practice as you take your happy ju-ju forward, deeper into your day, with each day that you practice.

So, what’s the upshot? Well, platitudes are great. Reading uplifting statements and quotes are fun and feel good. And listening to Abe’s workshops are informative, but what we’re looking for, if we want to feel good mostly and manifest like a G, is Staying Power. We want to be in The Vortex more than Out! We want to prolong our juicy feelings and take charge of our lives, rather than live by reacting and a roll of the dice.

I know I write about these steps to Alignment and Allowing a lot, and that’s because it Works!! My life is a testament to following Abe’s Loving Guidance and my wish is that we all achieve this level of personal success, joy and unlimited satisfaction.

So my darlings, if you want a life that will blow your mind, just remember, “IT WORKS IF YOU WORK IT!” Now get to Work and Start Creating like The God You Are…😎~*

Mining for something...

Creator, how’s about today you put on your Miner 49er Head Lamp, grab an energetic pickaxe and mine each moment you can, down to its core. Search into your Feelings for the Dynamic Juice that makes this moment, this vista, this person, this thought your entertaining, so bloody brilliant. With Your Universal Mind, Your Mind of God, seek out the Vein of Beauty that exists in the Quantum Strata beneath each Eternal Now Moment that is always available, and willing to bestow her numerous gifts upon you!

We have THE KEYS TO THE KINGDOM My Darlings and it resides in our ability to Focus, Appreciate, and Imagine. It’s The Grand Triad, The Eternal Triptych of Super Powers. And all we need do to activate this Majestic, Energetic Trio is make a habit out of finding, relishing, and savoring the best out of each moment. That’s it. It’s easy, simple, and it’s FREE!

I’m off now to Mine my world, both seen and unseen, for her Numerous Treasures, her Bounty of Riches. I’ll look for you Dear Friend, out beyond the mundane, the rote, the status quo! And when we meet, our Joy, Our Light, our Very Presence will amplify and light up the heavens and beyond. Of this I am sure. Tally ho…😎~*

chill out homies
Creator, I had a delicious thought I wanted to share with you. A few days ago a lovely man I know posted a tribute to his and his wife’s relationship. It began by praising their ability to love each other, to communicate effectively, etc. And then, dum de dum dum, it nose dived by adding a whole section that began with “despite our horrible childhood experiences, etc.” haha!
 
Only Abers would find this type of detour from great to awful amusing! Right? Damn I love us, but I digress!
 
Rather than go deep into the wobble, I chose to stop reading and bask in the first paragraph of praise and love. I left it there, that is until I saw this charming man and his equally lovely wife the other evening.
 
When I saw them and remembered the post, it hit me!! Bamn! It’s not “We’re doing well DESPITE our despicable childhood experience!” No No No, that’s all wrong! Rather, it is BECAUSE OF OUR CRAZY ASS UPBRINGING that we are Doing Well. We’re Thriving BECAUSE our childhood mostly sucked! It’s Thanks to our parent’s f’d up way of parenting that we created more Rockets of Desire to burst forth. It’s The Gift of NOT BEING GOTTEN, that has given us a Vortex brimming with our Dreams and Desires. It’s The Benefit of trying to squeeze our Eternal, Expansive Selves into Society’s square hole, that steered us right into the Loving Arms and Wisdom of The Teachings of Abe and Our Inner Beings! And really, is not that THE Greatest Gift of All?
 
So thank you Parents! Thank You Nuns! Thank you Rules and Regulations. Thank You boarding school! Thank you overbearing, boring, tedious teachers and school systems. Thank you less than stellar boyfriends. Thank you Friendships that didn’t end well. Jobs that were lifeless. Conversations that were banal. Lovers that didn’t Love. Sex that down right sucked! Overbearing bosses! Pets that died! Parents that died! Friends that died! Because you know what? All of it! All of it! All of it, was the grand catalyst for my exponential Asking, Expansion, and Growth.
 
It feels good to Appreciate broadly! To Allow fully. To Know completely that all of it is groovy cool! Never look back! No regrets! No blame! No shame! No victims, only Victors! Yup, that’s how we roll here, on This, THE MOST RIGHTEOUS LEADING-FUCKING-EDGE OF THOUGHT IN THE WHOLE DARN UNIVERSE! Over and out…😎~*

edmund-tarbell-girl-writingI just finished listening to the video included below, which answered An Asking I have had for some time about getting on a better vibrational footing around and with my former husband. In the recap, Abraham was speaking about how we put people we no longer want to be with (especially past lovers, husbands, wives etc.) into the Ex Category. I have never referred to Scott, my former husband, as my ex, because it never felt good. And knowing what I Know, when you attempt to EX-Out anything, it only causes it to remain more firmly in a funky feeling vibration. This has been a wanting of mine for a time, in that I desire all of my relationships, past and present, to shine vibrationally and I find that when I am around Scott, I feel a bit off. So Abe to the rescue!!

They’re suggestion to us is that we take all of those that we no longer are married too or dating, but might still harbor a wee resentment toward or feel an awkwardness around, and put them into a Pile of Appreciation.

I have transcribed this wee excerpt, because I wanted to herald it for myself and I have addressed it to my former husband the father of our daughter, Lily…

Dear Former Husband…

“You were there when I needed you. You were a vibrational match to that which I was. You were part of the contrast that helped me to identify what I want. My present and future experience is what it was because of my relationship with you. It was never your job to be a specific way so that I could feel better. We all were doing the best that we knew how to do as we went along the way. I love the fact that we had this relationship and I believe we will always have a relationship. And from now on. I am not going to let my thoughts about you, hurt my feelings anymore. I’M NO LONGER GOING TO DISRESPECT MYSELF BY TWISTING MY THOUGHTS ABOUT YOU AND MAKING MYSELF FEEL BAD ABOUT THEM!” (My favorite part, hence the caps!)

Wow! Right?! Feels so darn good. Off I go to play around in this juicy new Vibration I just created! This is what being a Deliberate Creatrix Feels Like!! Aligned and Allowing! All for one and one for all! Tally Ho Homies…~*

Einstein Quote of treating everyone the same

My father Clyde came to mind when I read this delightful quote. Everyone he met was his friend, and it was especially true when it came to the service industry. His appreciation of their attention showed by his tipping largesse and turning his winning smile on them. Wherever we went, folks bent over backwards to accommodate his every need!

When I was a kid, one of my favorite memories is of us walking into the lobby of Hotel Le Meurice in Paris. The entire staff lit up when he crossed the threshold; calling out his name, hand shakes, hugs, and merry smiles all around. The elevator operator even shut down the elevator to attend to Clyde’s first request upon landing anywhere – ice for his cocktails! Haha!

One day, when we were living in Florida, the doorbell rang. When I answered it, the fellow standing on the threshold introduced himself and followed it up with, “I’m a bartender at The Men’s Bar of The Biltmore in New York. Clyde always told me that if I was ever in Florida to look him up!”

Clyde came striding around the corner, right arm and hand extended in friendship! “Harry,” he said, “Good to see you! Come on in and have a drink!”

Yup that was my old man! A winner through and through…~*

NYC Bus

Greetings Darlings, Well I’m on fire today and I had to share, share, share this delicious, new-to-me-technique of boosting up my momentum, my inner fire, my fun with You, my Enchanting Cadre of Co-Creative Geniuses!

It all began yesterday with a wee meme I read; in a nutshell, it was about acknowledging what you dig and leaving the rest behind! We Aber’s know all about this little nugget of info, but then through the course of my day, I took it even farther…

…Why not use these delightful moments of Contrast to boost our energy and fuel our Inner Creativity and Knowing?

Think about it, as Abe constantly reminds us, “Without Contrast There Would Be NO EXPANSION!” That means that CONTRAST wields mucho power! It’s the Energy That Fuels UNIV-FUCKING-VERSAL EXPANSION for Christmas’ Sake! So how about we hop aboard this Rocket Ship of Momentum and use it to our advantage? Rather than just having a Contrasting Moment and using it to Pivot Towards What Feels Good, why don’t we apply an upgrade by Acknowledging and Appreciating Its Presence; thereby giving it more heft and weightiness, and use it to propel ourselves deeper into the V?

If we get into the Divine Habit of Appreciating Contrast when it surfaces, becoming more aware of it; then it becomes our Ally, Our Comrade, Our Buddy. In addition, by acknowledging its place as a Superior Player in our Lives, we become more adept at catching it early and not wallowing in the pooh for even a nano-second!

After using this Booster around Contrast all day yesterday, when I arrived home, I had a moment where I felt resistance come a creepin’ to my back door! The minute I felt it, I had a moment of, “Nooooo! I don’t want you here!” But then, I heard the guidance that My Non-Physical Cadre Of Mighty Helpers downloaded to me, and it wasn’t about using the traffic cop signal of stop! (which we know only invites more of what we don’t want), but rather, to welcome it! Welcome Resistance, has she gone mad? Haha! Perhaps, but I took it as a signal of where I was vibing.  And if we want to keep Vibing at the Level of The Gods, these moments of early detection are our touchstone to a SourceLike Level  of Awareness and Creativity! Rather than get sucked in, we turn it on it’s head!

So I said to that sly visitor known as Resistance, “Wow! I love feeling you. Because by feeling you, it means I am in touch with my emotions, like a Boss. So guess what Ole Man Resistance (sorry fellas, a old worn out cliche I know, but here it works 🙂 ), we are going to add some fuel to your visit. I am going to use YOU as my Booster Into More, More Upliftment, More Understanding of Me, More Intuitive Awareness of Where I Vibe on a moment to moment basis.” And let me tell you, I went Rocketing so deep into My Vortex that it took my breath away! Haha!

I’m a child of The City of Manhattan and growing up there, I used to see adventurous boys “catch a ride” on the back bumper of busses cruising down the street! They were having a ball, and I thought how fun it would be to have the courage to hop aboard and take a ride. Well, NOW I know what that feels like. There are always two busses going by, The One That Takes You Upstream, to The Land of Where Nothing That You Want Resides, and then there’s the one that takes you DownStream, to all your Desires, Hopes, Dreams, Endless Possibilities, Creations, RendezVous, and the like.

So Creator, when next you are visited by Contrast or Resistance, how about you reach out and grab onto the back of da Bus that’s heading your way, toward More! How about you acknowledge this delightful moment of self-awareness where you made the conscious decision to turn this moment around. And then for the capper, how about you say to The Universe, “Hey, Check Me Out!! I so got this! I am a G, I am a God, I have come to this place where I can instantly manifest more through my choices! Oh, and hit the gas, I want to go faster!”

Now that’s what Living, Thriving, Abounding on The Leading-Most Edge of Thought is all about! I am triple darn sure that’s how we thought we’d do this gig before we landed here. We can either let someone else drive our Interstellar Ship/Bus/Vortex, or we can take Control and steer her towards the rising sun, every darn time!

I am taking my leave now, time to go for a walk with my delightful dog and feel all that I can feel about this incredible life on this calm, misty, autumn morning! But, before I go, might I just say that I appreciate you, my cadre of homies, more than words can convey! I LOVE sharing what I am learning, day by day, moment by moment with all of you! It gives me more delight than words can convey! But hey, that’s not going to stop me from trying. All for one and one for all! I am, Constance Todd Smith, over and out…~*

They say that money can't buy you happiness

Creator, Do You know why I Laughed Out Loud when I read this quote? Because WE in Abe Land KNOW that “being broke” is a TEMPORARY State of Mind of “Not Enough-ness,’ not a permanent condition. And WE KNOW that this sorry-ass state of feeling lack can be turned on its head in a nanosecond, simply by turning our attention to anything that feels good.

When We focus on what feels good, that positive energy engenders, propagates, calls out for a feeling of ABUNDANCE to come and play with us! That’s right, feeling good about ANYTHING – could be something as seemingly small as your new nail color, your first sip of coffee, your cat purring in your lap, hearing your kid laugh from the other room and allowing it to light up your heart, seeing a groovy vid on FB and sharing it with your pals – puts you in an Upleveled State of Feeling Abundant which colors Each and Every Aspect of Your Life! You don’t have to be specific about what you want Abundance in, just Go General and allow LOA to color in all the details and how-to’s for you!

Start speaking about What Does Work, What Does Feel Good, and leave the driving to The Universe. And then watch out Creator, you’re not going to believe how fast your life will turn into manifestations of such Clarity, Abundance and Love that it will take your breath away! PROMISE…~*
