Most people, by now, have heard of the Secret. The book describes the power of the Law of Attraction and how to begin to attract to yourself what you most want.
One of the most powerful points this book makes is that the Universe doesn't hear the word "don't", so if you say you don't want something, the Universe will deliver it to you. The Secret is a powerful way to change the way you speak about your life and about what you want to manifest in it.
Speaking in a positive way about what is entering your consciousness is one way to turn things around. Abraham is a collective energy that is channeled through a woman named Esther Hicks. The energy is called Abraham-Hicks to distinguish it from other channelled energies. Abraham speaks often about the Law of Attraction and how to manifest things on the Earth Plane.
One of the most important points Abraham makes is about moving up the Emotional Guidance Scale. The Secret alludes to this but doesn't go into as much detail. Our emotions are our internal guidance system, and they direct the flow of energy, therefore they can direct our manifestations on the physical plane. Abraham suggests moving up the emotional guidance scale to the point where you feel relief, or release from your resistance to your situation.
Here is the Emotional Guidance Scale:
1. Joy/Knowledge/Empowerment/ Freedom/Love/Appreciation
4. Positive Expectation/Belief
The more you can move up the scale, the more you will be able to be in Divine Flow and able to manifest into your life. Everything is manifest on the non-physical or astral planes. Everything that we want to create has already been created on these planes, and to bring them into physical existence we must have the emotion first that sets the tone for recieving what we most want.
This doesn't mean we don't do the work. We can't just expect something to fall into our laps without doing the work on the physical plane to achieve it. If we want a successful business, we have to advertise. If we want to find the love of our lives, we have to put ourselves out there. The Law of Attraction isn't about sitting around feeling emotion.
It is about adding action to emotion to manifest what we want in our lives.
