Category: Keep Your Own Counsel


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…~*

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…😎~*

Not everyone will understand your journey

Creator, if you anything like me, then you’re acutely aware of sharing your hopes, dreams, projects, ideas, the uber cool stuff you’re working on/creating, before YOU ARE VIBRATIONALLY READY TO SHARE!

Birthing a new passion is akin to having a baby; in which case, most prudent folks wait till they’re pregnant for 3 months before sharing the good news! Why? Simple, prevailing wisdom dictates that once you’ve crossed into the second trimester of baking your baby into manifestation, then the odds for a full term pregnancy are more favorable!

Treat your ideas with the same care. Remember – NO ONE IS UNDER ANY OBLIGATION TO SEE IT YOUR WAY. Meaning, when you share early or ever, the opinions are likely to fly, some in the good column, some not so favorable, and some downright negative. And the final 2 can cause a mighty wobble for you, drain the wind from your sails and leave you questioning the brilliance of your Idea.

Here’s the thing, although you’re bursting with pride and passion with your latest endeavor, I have found that KEEPING MY OWN COUNSEL is SO MUCH MORE REWARDING! I get to bake my project in my imagination. I line up with it more. I inculcate the fullness of it. In short, over time I come to OWN IT! And then, once you’ve crossed that threshold into the End Zone of feeling Mighty, Unflappable, and Fully Knowing about your latest Brilliant Creation, then by all means, share.

Although, one final word, even if you’re fully aligned and on board with your Creation, NO ONE will Ever be able to see it, feel it, get it, own it with the same degree of Fiery Fervor that you do! No one! Everything’s an inside job, so if something Feels Extraordinary to You, then by all means, go for it. Leave the opinions of others, the peanut gallery, out of it.

It’s a totally new way of living that we Abers have come to embrace. Our new and improved way of understanding the world and our place in it, is the antithesis of what 99.99% of the world around us believes and lives. And we’ve been brought up to take score, gather opinions, and use other people’s reactions to gauge the worthiness of our ideas!

What I know at my deepest level of understanding, is that I’m here for me, for my joy, to explore my creativity and needing someone, anyone else’s approval, mitigates my flow.

So here’s to us, Leading-Edge Groovsters doing it our way and figuring it out, one contrasting moment at a time! 3 Cheers as we move forward toward a deeper Understanding and Knowing of what this life’s journey is all about. We’re the bomb, but let’s keep that to ourselves, shall we? Haha! Over and out my Homies…~*

Sometimes I want to be alone

Oh Oh Oh, this is sooo me! I Adore Being Alone! Really! Always have and by the looks of things, always will! I am an only child, born of 2 only children in The City of Manhattan. My life was always solitary, which might seem counter to being a City Kid, but knowing what I know, you can be more blissfully alone in a City than anywhere else on the planet.

There was a code when I was growing up in NYC that you give each person a wide berth, no unusually long eye-contact (more than a nano second), and no prying into other people’s affairs. After all, that’s what the doorman was for haha! Rather, You Kept Your Own Counsel and that my friends is where the power lies.

Keeping your own counsel. Hmmm, what does that mean anyway? To me it means seeing how I feel about a particular subject before jumping into a “group on” about it. It means honoring the tacit arrangement that although we are living on top of one another, literally, we can give each other privacy and space. It means keeping my opinions to myself! Bingo, there’s the big one, KEEPING MY OPINIONS TO MYSELF!

Through the constant and consistent practice I have adopted of inculcating The Teaching’s of Abraham into the marrow of my bones, I have come to the delightful realization that my opinion is just that, mine. And that my way of seeing something is again, my way and perhaps not at all germane to the person whom I’m focused upon.

Do I know their story? Do I have a clue about what they’ve lived, their desires, their gaps, their dreams, anything? NO! Not even my own kid! I don’t have a bloody clue, ’cause guess what else I know? That sometimes I don’t even know what’s best for Me, so why oh why would I take my Super Power of Focus and use it frivolously? Why not turn that Focus back on me? How am I feeling? What’s brewing and stewing in my life? What do I want more of? Less of? How do I want to Create today?

Although now my home is situated smack dab in a suburban landscape, I still live by my NYC code of honoring everyone’s space. It’s in my blood and now that I KNOW the benefits of Keeping My Own Counsel, or as my father Clyde used to say to me when I would weigh in on a subject, “Tend to your knitting back there!” (Usually it was when I was doing hard time stuck in the back seat of my dad’s sport’s car while he smoked cigars and my mom her cigs! Haha)

So Creator, how about this? Let’s make today a Tend To Your Knitting Day. Tend to Your Vibration Day. Tend to Your Wants and Desires Day and leave other people to tend to theirs? I’m thinking that’s a genius plan.

I’m off now to knit one, pearl two on this delightful day. And if I drop a stitch or two, so be it. I can always recalibrate, pivot, hit the reset button on my focus and vibration. After all WE ARE MASTERS for Christmas’ Sake and that means EVERYONE! Not just us guys and gals who like to swath ourselves in The Knowing That The Teachings of Abe afford us! EVERYONE! Leave them to find their connection in their way and let’s tend to ours lovingly and with care!

You with me My Homies?
