In the 6 years I’ve been following Abraham Hicks, I’ve noticed a couple themes in their teachings. Whether you’re new to Abraham Hicks or not, I encourage you to have fun with this content. Putting it into practice might be even more fun.
You Never Get It Wrong
Often times, (and because we’ve been conditioned to do so) we perceive negative feeling situations/circumstances as things going “wrong.” As a result, we end up feeling emotions related to: guilt, shame, inadequacy, etc. Before we know it, we find ourselves in a spiraling vortex that increases in negativity because we keep feeding it negativity. So, in other words, it snowballs.
Abraham Hicks offers a different perspective – a different choice we can make using the power of our perception. Remember, our natural impulse is to react but we don’t have to. Take a moment and pause. In that moment of pause, you offer yourself a choice.
Anything that happens for us, (not to us) happens for our own expansion and whether joyous or painful, the experience simply brings us to a new point of attraction. We’re standing from a new place we’ve never been before and from that vantage point, we have new desires, standards, boundaries, and understanding.
So you may choose to think you made a mistake. Perhaps you moved to a new city and it was “all wrong for you.” Basically, you had an overall negative – not – so – good – feeling experience around it. But more than likely, the experience itself helped you to refine and desire a new location more aligned to you. The emotion you feel is what will catalyze your will to change your circumstance.
Emotions are our compass. They help us discern what aligns with us vs. what does not. We can make choices based on this emotional guidance system. Without experience, (or “getting it wrong”) preference would not exist either.
You Never Get It Done
We’re under the illusion that there’s a finish line, but it doesn’t exist. We never stop growing. We never stop evolving. Even death is not an end, but a transition. Doors are in a constant state of opening and closing.
Our own galaxy is in a constant state of growth and expansion and we are no different. With this notion, we might be able to relax a little bit. Just knowing that each time we reach a plateau, there will be another one to walk towards. This is an infinite process. So, what’s the rush? To rush = to be in a state of resistance. When we rush, we are vibrating the essence of lack instead of trust.
Knowing deep in our being that we can never get it wrong and that we never get it done brings us a sense of peace and neutrality.
It is from that emotional setpoint of neutrality, that we can allow all things to flow to us and through us. Being in a vibrational state of worry, distrust and fear for instance does not put us in an allowing state. It puts us in a state of resistance.
These are just a few themes from the teachings of Abraham Hicks. To me, they serve as foundational concepts to their other teachings. We all want to manifest and be conscious creators in our own lives. Before we take action on these things, we’ve got to master the art of Neutrality and Allowing.
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it” ~Rumi
According to Abraham Hicks, meditation, naps and sleeping are great ways to start a practice in the art of Allowing.
