Category: Challenges


Most of us were brought up with the misguided notion that we should please others before ourselves, that we should take action when not in alignment (usually to please others), and then to beat ourselves up when we fail to please or fall short of another’s expectations. Well I am happy to declare that those days are over, thanks to The Teachings of Abraham! 

The societal definition of Procrastination serves as the perfect example. Let’s begin with Merrium Webster:

“Pro·cras·ti·nate\prə-ˈkras-tə-ˌnāt, prō-\
: to be slow or late about doing something that should be done : to delay doing something until a later time because you do not want to do it, because you are lazy, etc.”

In other words, if you don’t do what you “should” do, what has been asked of you, either by yourself (a project/passion that you want to participate in) or by another person, you can now consider yourself an unmotivated looser who is lazy! Wow! A bit harsh wouldn’t you say? And you wonder why you beat yourself up? You were taught to, and they did a good job. But now we can throw all that antediluvian bullshit out in the trash where it belongs. 

Let’s start now with Abraham’s Definition of Procrastination: 

“Procrastination is the wisdom to not try to force something that you’re not vibrationally ready for!” 

Fuck yes! It’s not that I’m a looser, it’s that I’m not aligned and therefore feel stuck. Hmmm. So, if I do the energetic work of Aligning, then take action on the heels of that momentum, I will not only feel better (the super bonus) as I’ve become up to speed with my Broader Aspect, but I’ll Master this assigned task with genius, creativity, ease, flow, wisdom, and clarity as I align and flow The Energy That Creates Worlds!!

Yup, that’s it! You got it. Now a quick primer to the “How do I align with something that I feel stuck about?” question. 

We know that you can’t pivot against the stream of feeling stuck to feeling good instantly, there’s too much momentum built up on the negative side; however, you can almost instantly conjure up relief by going general. Follow me here as I do the Going General Practice on something that has been vexing me: 

It’s ok that this doesn’t feel like a good time. I am happy to work towards a feeling of alignment before taking action. I want the joy of creating through alignment and I am willing to do the vibrational work to attain that joy. I really love it when I feel good about working on projects. It is so satisfying to flow with creativity. The reason I’m not flowing now is that I have to get up to speed with the Genius that is me! My Genius isn’t going anywhere, she is eagerly anticipating my return to her vibrational vicinity and lobbing clues at me (paths of least resistance) everywhere I turn. This contrast has served me, as now I know it’s not my fault or a character defect that has me vexed, it’s just a question of alignment. I’m really good at finding my sure footedness, I’ve done it countless times before. It feels good remembering my successes at turning my thoughts and beliefs to those that serve. It feels good knowing I’m on the right path always, and I love the feeling that I’m going to take a wicked bounce from this contrast. I don’t have to do anything right now this red hot minute, I can relax in the knowing that when I am aligned, the information and inspiration will flow like red hot lava! And on, and on, and on! 

Yup, Creator, that’s how we do it here on The Leading Most Edge of Thought in The Whole Darn Universe! Until next time. Namaste Homies…~*

My inspired thought and action to create this post came from this brilliant video.  Click on the link, sit back, and feel the relief and knowing flow: Abraham-Hicks: Why Do I Procrastinate?

i-stopped-explaining-myself

Right Creator? And truth be told, the real reason we like to tell our story of “coming from behind” is only for Validation. And really, who’s qualified to Validate any of us? I’ll tell you, No One! And does it serve us to blah blah about anything? No, it does not. And And And lowering our Vibration in order to “explain” how you got here from there, is not only counter-intuitive but, boring! Yes I said it, “BORING!!” Haha.

Listen, if we were to energetically measure the distance in terms of contrast where each one of us has been to our Current Now Life and What We Now Know, we would all qualify for our own unique version of “The Horatio Alger Story.” So let’s leave it there, shall we? And rather, let’s weave the tale of Where We’re Going, How Much Fun We’re Having, How Much There is to Appreciate, How Many Cool Experiences and Opportunities are Lined Up Waiting For Our Participation, etc.

And if all else fails, Silence is Your Friend. Just because someone asks you a question does not mean you have to answer it. People are programmed for Q&A and from my experience, the deeper I go into me, cultivating my relationship with my Inner Being and ignoring everything else, the less I have to say. I mean really, how does one explain the Inner Landscape of One’s prodigious Imagination? Or how delightful it is to Frolic and Play with Non-Physical? Or the satisfaction of having full on conversations with my Posse of Dead Geniuses? Or the Plu-Perfect Pleasure I derive from interacting with my animals? Or talking out loud and proud to the birds, flowers, critters on my walk with my dog? Or when I am communing with The Pacific Ocean? Or, Or, Or….

Seriously folks, if I really EXPLAINED WHAT THE FUCK I DO EVERYDAY, the people with the white van would be at my front door with a straight jacket embroidered with my name on it!! So if you can’t spin your tale from a High Flying, High-Vibing Disk, then don’t say anything. And if someone tries to corner you with a question about any aspect of your life, my answer is, “I don’t want to talk about that.” Period. And then I shut it! Not only do I shut it down energetically, but verbally. I don’t explain why I don’t want to talk about it, ’cause it’s none of their business! And most importantly, I have absolutely no intention of abdicating My Power ever again, just for the sake of decorum or placating someone’s “Nosy Parker” aspect.

In short, it’s time to cultivate your Selfish Behavior. To become an Adept at not thinking about how you’re being received and perceived (no matter how hard you try to explain, no one will ever really get you anyway!), and Keep Your Own Counsel. And soon, very soon, your life will be so juicy that words can’t even begin to explain the level of Creativity and Flow in which you dwell. And the Super Bonus, you’ll cease caring what anyone thinks now and forever more. And then my Homies, you will have experienced the highest, purest form of Freedom on the planet, Freedom from giving a shit!! Until next time…~*

ladies-and-gentlemen-this-is-your-captain-speaking

Creator, this is your Homie speaking… How’s things in your quadrant of the Universe? Are you flying high? Are you Manifesting Your Dreams and mostly Flowing Supreme Feelings of Purpose and Pleasure like the God you are? Hmmm, not really huh?

In order to Allow the biggest most delicious Experiences and Opportunities to flow into our lives, we must challenge ourselves, constantly and consistently, to keep resistance at a minimum. Now I’m not talking about a strenuous effort here. To the contrary, I am speaking to the notion of Focus and Consistency of Positive Thought. That’s it. No bench pressing, no 101 Sun Salutations, no marathons; just shifting and up-leveling your Thoughts and Power of Focus. That’s all it takes to create a life that will make your toes curl.

Since I’ve been playing in Abe Land and inculcating these powerful Teachings and How-To Methods, it’s become clear to me that complacency ain’t gonna get things accomplished. “Half-Assing It” is not going to help you strike gold. And certainly operating with the same old judgements and sloppy thinking, will only keep you in stasis.

So what’s a Creator who wants to Create more efficiently and abundantly do? Oh so glad you asked. You Focus, that’s what! Focus is your SuperPower! And You Challenge Yourself by saying things like:

-Today I’m going to think more positively than not!

-Today I will milk The Positive Feelings that flow through me, keeping them going for as long as possible.

-Today I will notice when my thoughts stray to the dark side (judgement of myself and others) and reel myself in to Focus on a merrier thought or vision.

-Today I will have fun with all of this ’cause I can’t get it wrong and I’ll never get it done!

-Today I’ll laugh out loud, I’ll be irreverent. I’ll create my own path. I’ll break the rules. I’ll color outside the lines. I’ll throw caution to the wind. I won’t give a rip what anyone thinks of me. I’ll act kooky, crazy, unabashedly free.

-Today I’ll flow and project my most authentic and aligned self, to myself.

-Today I’ll become a World Class Appreciator, Appreciating everything I set my eyes on or Focus my thoughts toward!

It’s that simple and it’s up to you to make it easy, which like everything, comes with Practice, Practice, Practice.

So I’m off now, ’cause I love Challenging myself to fly higher, Create more boldly, download the genius of The Universe more consistently, and just get better and better and better at being the Most Badd Ass Badd, Leading-Edge Creatrix in the whole darn Universe. Haha! Shit’s About to Get Real My Homies, so hang on and get ready for the ride  of your life…~*

NO_suit

Creator – I had a thought the other day and I wanted to share it with you. Sometimes, when we are asked to do something we really don’t want to do, some of us say yes, rather than remaining true to ourselves, with the simplest of 2 letter words, NO. This common mistake of putting other’s desires before our own, is something most of us have been taught since childhood. So, how about this thought, to help nip this ridiculous habit in the bud?

When you say No to a request from anyone: kid, spouse, lover, friend, client, neighbor, door-to-door salesman, boss, who-the-heck ever, you’re actually saying a loud YES to YOU! That’s right, in this instance, No really does mean Yes!

Now all of you out there who still have a compunction to negate your truest desire because of guilt or some other nonsense, this is your get out of jail free card, literally! Beginning right here, right NOW, you can free yourself from this outdated, was never cool anyway, kind of thinking.

You know what I tell people who are serial helpers of others to the detriment of themselves? That when your life is filled to overflowing with everything you have ever desired, then by all means, take some time to offer a service or 2. In the meantime, check this out, it’s always the same people asking, and once you begin to assert yourself, for yourself, they’ll stop and go find the next sucker (brutal yes, but I’ve been there and speak from experience) to sink their teeth into. You are not the last bastion of helpers. There is always someone ready, willing and able to take the burden!

At first, your folks might be confused by your answer. “Say What?” “Did you say no?” that type of thing, but when you stand your ground, your fertile ground, knowing you are listening to your Inner Guidance not the outside whine of others, your life will become sweeter. Promise.

So, repeat after me Creator. When someone asks you to do something that you don’t want to do. What’s your answer?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

And if you’re feeling like you want to add a Thank You at the end, well by all means, go right ahead!

Wishing you a day of Yes’s to all your dreams and desires. Over and out…~*

Greetings Creator… So how many days of The NO NEGATIVE BLAH BLAH Campaign (that would be words, thoughts and deeds) have you been engaged in? Me? I’m embarking on Day 16 of my Eternal Lifetime of This Happy Habit and the results, well, let me tell you…

I have downloaded, aka, ALLOWED IN some really groovy information about a project that my love Jason and I began conjuring up about 8 months ago. This, like many of our ideas, wasn’t ready to be unleashed YET! And then, the other evening while we were sitting and dreaming together (one of our favorite pastimes), our project came swooping in, landed with aplomb into the forefront of our brains and announced, “I’m Ready!” And so, we began the joyful process of taking this Creation to the next level. It feels so darn good to get my fingers in the clay once again.

Our Dance, Ecstatic Dance Berkeley, has been up and running since August 1st and she’s doing really, really well. Once something is running smoothly for me, I’m ready for a new project; as the beginnings of it, the nascent stages, the coordination, the downloads, the genius allowing, all serve to light me the heck up. And Abe is always chiding us to reach for more, not to become complacent with where we are, but to push out the boundaries, letting in new ideas, new playmates, new downloads!

If I had not ceased focusing on what doesn’t serve only 16 days ago, then I wouldn’t be in the driver’s seat of this current, fun playground. How could I? You can’t let in the fun, party guests, if the house is crowded with unwelcome, unwashed, unhappy vibrations. You must Spring Clean your vibe, and unlike your home, it’s a whole lot easier.

All you need do is open the windows and air out your mind. Inviting in the joy, the happiness, the hope, the upliftment, the groovy vibes that swirl and twirl around us constantly and continuously, patiently waiting for a window of opportunity, to slide on in to the home plate of our frontal lobe, and light us up from the inside out with emotions and ideas of grand proportions!

I invite all of you to get on board with this Challenge, it will change your life!!! And, if you can, get your pals to buy in as well. My daughter, boyfriend and best friend are also playing this game with me, and it really helps to have them around when I start tip toeing down that slippery slope to nowhere!

Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dreams are Yours Creator, just clear out the clutter and bring in the sexy, refined, streamlined, focused, expansive side of YOU and watch what happens. It’ll take your breath away…

Tally Ho Humans…~*

 

a smooth sea

Creator, I had a whole lot of whoppin’ contrast and grand realizations this past Friday Night, that I want to share with you! Here’s some not so deep background, to give my story context:

My love Jason and I, have taken over the stewardship of a weekly dance in Berkeley CA. As with any new project, it is front end loaded with much “to-do’s” and reality based work and tasks that must be completed. Over the course of these last 3 months, we have artfully managed to remain in alignment and flourish with the process, a majority of the time. Good on us, right? And, we have seen where we get “hung up” with old habitual, knee-jerk reactions, and subsequently, turned these moments around, pivoting our faces turned towards the shining sun of knowing. Then, when the dust settled, laughing at ourselves and our old habits of thought, and at how quickly we jettison what doesn’t work for us, as we up-level those contrasting moments, into moments of clarity.

Alright, you have the preamble, now on the latest revelation. Let’s do it Abe Style (what would formerly been referred to as the Socratic Method, was Socrates an early Aber? Hmmmm…) of Q&A:

Do you believe that we came here to expand and create? I certainly do.

And, do you believe that we would want and are consistently asking The Universe to provide us with the quickest and easiest route to said expansion and creation? Yesirree, I do.

And, do you believe that The Universe can and will heap upon you a whole whoppin’ dose of contrast, over the course of the evening because:

A. It’s what you desire.
B. You can handle it. And
C. It’s the quickest and most effective way to keep the trajectory of your desire moving forward, by offloading/fine-tuning “in bulk” what is necessary to make your creation big, bigger, biggest energetically and in terms of manifestation?

Yes, Yes, Yes, I do!

Well my darlings, this is ex-fucking-actly what happened to us on Friday Night. What could go “wrong” did. What wasn’t working, REALLY wasn’t working, in heels and dancing backwards. But, but, but – we had the perfect people present at the perfect time to handle a few “mishaps” that showed up. We had solutions present themselves before the problem manifested, so when they did, it was handled efficiently, safely and with aplomb. And then, Jason and I had, in the aftermath, the GRAND OPPORTUNITY to sift through the evening, taking each incident apart one by one, and deciding there and then, how we want to progress forward.

In other words, we got to fine-tune, cull, separate the wheat from the chaff, on a whole host of issues at once, instead of piece meal over the course of who knows how long. Because guess what? We are NOT here to create in the slow lane, who has the time or inclination? Not I, because that is not who WE are! We are GODS (You and I) and as such, isn’t it about damn time we stepped into our Super-Suit-Of-Knowing as we get this show on the proverbial road of limitless possibilities?

And, doesn’t it make perfect sense that everything would show up at once, giving us the grand opportunity to change it up, STAT? To Up-level immediately, thereby making way for more creativity and expansion? Hell-To-The-Yea it is!

So Creator, next time you find yourself facing a contrasting moment, or string of them, how about this for a thought, “YOU asked for it.”

Excuse me? I asked for it?

That’s right, you asked for it, and The Universe (you’re Larger Aspect) KNOWS you can handle it; all the while keeping your momentum moving forward, toward all you desire and more. And, why not take it all in bulk (think Costco), so that you can energetically clean house on a larger scale, sweeping clean the slate, and starting from a new energetic level and Point of Attraction? 

HAHAHA, doesn’t that make perfect sense? And, isn’t it funny that Contrast, what was formerly “the enemy,” we can now embrace as our Partner, our cooperative component, our co-creative catalyst in this life’s journey?

I just love The Teachings of Abraham, which is exactly why I began this blog, and my Abraham Hicks & You page on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/abrahamhicksandyou/), so that You and I together, could herald our triumphs and clarity. So that we could see this life’s experience for what it is; one of expansion, not one of contraction. So that we could use the brilliant tools that our Teachers have lovingly given us, to grease the skids of our Creative Process; thereby making ALL SITUATIONS; the good, the bad, and the ugly, useful in our expansion and alignment process.

I’m off now, to see what this day has in store for me! To take it all in, to inhale the contrast, and exhale the solutions. To not miss a step or a beat, as I skip down the lane of Unlimited, Sexy, Unbridled, Passion Filled Moments! Oh, the sweet joy of another Success, Me Lining Up With Me, Co-Creation at Its Best~*

learn to say no without explaining yourself.

I Double Dare Your Creator, begin right now leaving off the post script to your NO. Can you do it?

It feels really weird at first, simply because we are programmed to defend, explain, update, account for, give a reason for, justify, give an excuse for, vindicate, legitimize…. blah, blah, blah. And it’s all in a effort to placate the Asker while circumventing how we really feel.

When I first began hearing Abraham talk about this, I was a bit frustrated with our non-physical teachers. “Really Abe? How the hell do you just say NO and leave it at that? ”

After a lifetime of my book-ending this smallest of words, uttering the word NO alone felt like half a word, half an answer, naked, missing a limb; like it’s hanging out in space dangling by a thread, begging to be saved by an excuse (usually fabricated!!!).

Well I’ll tell you, its just like anything you want to get good at,  you just “damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead” and do it. And you’ll find, as with everything you practice, it gets easier and easier. Soon the mirth you will have when the petitioner hears your lovely NO and gets that look of, “Did she just say that?” will carry you through any embarrassment you might initially have of standing in your power.

I started this NO routine when my daughter was still in elementary school. The other moms are geniuses at coercing you into taking on a project you loathe for “the good of the school, the good of the kids, the good of what-the-heck ever.” So I thought, if I can say NO to these woman, I can hold my own with anyone.

Here was my strategy, say it with a smile, NO 🙂 and add pleasantries as a post script – “No, Thank You.” And then, before my tongue could issue any more words, I’d shut my mouth, still smiling and walk away. That way I couldn’t see their incredulity over the nerve of me!!!

And now? We’ll I’ve gotten so good, so at ease, so aligned at issuing my NO response, that I actually stay to watch their reaction. Through practice I’ve become an adept at flowering up my NO by adding some lovely words (truthful and heartfelt) while making it more fun for me.

“No thank you. But I want to say how much I appreciate woman like you who give of themselves so freely”

Because you know what? I do appreciate them, big time. They’re doing they’re thing, and I mine.

So next time someone asks, “Hey Constance, could you make 100 fucking (my add) cupcakes for the class bake sale?” My answer, “No thank you, but I can’t wait to taste yours. Everybody says they’re the best around.”

Yes Creator, flattery will get you everywhere~*

reaching for the stars

Creator, have you ever heard Abraham say, “YOU’VE BARELY SCRATCHED THE SURFACE.” with regard to this life’s experience? I have, on the Alaskan Cruise two years ago, when they blasted out the phrase acrosss the auditorium. And then, just to rub it in and in keeping with their teaching style, they continued to say it over, and over again. I was at first incredulous thinking, “Are you kidding?” Because honestly, my life since discovering The Teachings of Abraham, had gone from good to GREAT! I was feeling pretty darn good about mostly feeling pretty darn good. I had no complaints as everything was unfolding nicely, and now Source was telling me/us that we were far from what we could achieve! Say what?

They were goading us, chiding us… So you think this is good? HA! You’ve Barely Scratched the Surface Human! Time to put your big boy and big girl pants on, ’cause there is more fun to be had, there are way more delights to be unearthed, more of everything to be experienced. They were issuing us a challenge against our becoming vibrationally complacent, as they pushed us to understand that this was never our goal; but rather, we knew that we as Deliberate Creators had to keep up-leveling, to nurture a consistent desire to move, to reach ever forward, if we were ever to realize consistent happiness.

And this brings me to what I want to talk about today… How does one go about moving to the next level of Creation?  Easy, you begin by focusing on upgrading your conscious participation of Deliberately Creating your life experience. What I mean is, IT’S TIME TO REACH FOR MORE, all day long!

Look, WE KNOW that we are Creators, that we are Eternal, and that we never get it done.  And WE KNOW that what feels good today, is not going to be as interesting a week from now, 6 months from now, a year from now, that is if we don’t add some hot sauce and keep spicing it up.  This goes for everything: Relationships, Work, Play, Passions, Dreams, EVERYTHING!  And in order to satiate our neverending desire for flowing more vibrational juice, then we must continually reach for more. IOW, mine our daily experience to its depths.

Here are 4 Simple Steps to achieving a life of never-ending joy and consistent, conscious expansion:

1. Begin your day in a State of Appreciation, either by making lists (this is the most effective form for me), or just laying in bed and reciting what you love about your life, that moment, your pillow, the morning, the juicy guy/gal next to you (or the one that soon will be, once you get on this assignment!).

This first exercise of the day extremely important, as it sets the tonal quality for what lies ahead! Hey, you wouldn’t leave the house without your pants on, right? Think of this as your vibrational pants. If you were to walk out of your house naked, just imagine how the quality of your day would unfold? Same with starting your day without setting a firm vibrational foundation from which to spring forth.

2. APPRECIATE and Milk EVERYTHING and anything, all throughout your day!  I love talking to myself in the car, appreciating what’s around me, the other drivers, the smooth road, the hills, the trees, my car!  It’s so much fun, and you can feel yourself getting “bigger” vibrationally as you hunt and gather and add to your momentum, building up your muscle of Deliberate Creation.

3. Be constantly on the look out for upgrades. IOW, look about your house, your  job, your relationships. Every part of your life is available for a full promotion to a new level, no exceptions. Dig into it, dream, formulate, investigate, inquire, be curious, unearth and then unleash your imagination on these things, creating the life beyond your wildest dreams. And finally,

4. Have fun with all of  it! After all it’s a practice Dear Creator, nothing more, nothing less. And once you have established your Up-Level Vibrational Beach Head with your new practiced habit of appreciation and the continuous milking of your day, your contrasting experiences will reward you by becoming less onerous. You will experience contrast as more of “a bit of sand in your shoe” type of feeling rather than the POW, right in the  kisser!  kind of contrast with which we are all familiar. Which happily results in more time spent in your Vortex and less time with your face pressed up against the glass, hoping someone will take pity on you and let you in. LOL!!

And the double bonus is you will notice areas in your life, that you formerly hadn’t been giving much attention too, begin to shine more, to sparkle. And those parts that were once not quite what you wanted, suddenly become exactly what  you want, as they morph into more of what you desire! All areas of your life will rise to the occasion, no exceptions! Just imagine the possibilities!

So, what do you think? Are you up for a life that continues to unfold beyond your wildest dreams? Are you ready to feel really, really good, most of the time?  To go beyond what you think you know and move into playing at the level of The Gods? I am, and as such, have issued myself a challenge, to take my life firmly by the scruff of the neck and steer it toward all my hopes and dreams. To see my world through the Eyes of Source, mostly (after all we are human, so we must be prepared to give ourselves a break!); to feel more joy than pain; more happiness than sorrow; more of what is possible as opposed to what isn’t.

I am so up for this kind of focus, as I can feel my Inner Being, my Broader Aspect doing a happy dance as she and I prepare to take flight beyond the constraints of old thought patterns and complaceny, as we remake, re-invent my life to reflect the God that I am.

You with me? Oh, I certainly hope so…~*
