Abraham-Hicks Daily Quote


 A very good career choice would be to gravitate toward those activities and to embrace those desires that harmonize with your core intentions, which are freedom and growth—and joy.
Make a "career" of living a happy life rather than trying to find work that will produce enough income that you can do things with your money that will then make you happy. When feeling happy is of paramount importance to you—and what you do "for a living" makes you happy—you have found the best of all  combination's. ---Abraham

Abraham-Hicks Daily Quote



  As you look for a better-feeling way to approach whatever you are giving your attention to; as you continue to ask yourself, from your ever-changing vantage point, "What is it that I do want?" eventually you will be standing in a very pleasing place—for you cannot continually ask yourself what it is that you do want without your point of attraction beginning to pivot in that direction. . . . The process will be gradual, but your continued application of the process will yield wonderful results in only a few days.

Are You Going In The Direction Of Your Desires?

Do you KNOW what direction you're heading in?
Do you have a vision...life goals?
Being deliberate about your actions and keeping a positive vibration going is really the only way to be sure you're heading in the direction of your desires.
Here's something by Abraham-Hicks that may be helpful in making sure you're going in the direction you want: Whatever you are giving your attention to is already vibrating. And when you give your attention to it, if you maintain your focus for as little as 17 seconds, you begin to include its vibration, whatever it is, in your vibration.










The Direction Of Your Desire
Abraham -Hicks


We see a lot of you making the worst of it over and over again. And do you know why you do that? It's for very well-meaning reasons. You make the worst of it because, at every level of your Being, you understand that you are supposed to feel good and that things are supposed to go well for you. And when they don't, you're, sort of, freaking out on even very deep levels, there's something that makes you want to shout "Somebody should call somebody about this! Somebody should call somebody and somebody should fix something, so that my life goes better," because you were born with that promise in place. You were born knowing that you are the center of the Universe. You were born knowing that the resources of All-That-Is would back you up. So when somethings going freakishly wrong, we understand your consternation. We understand how frustrating it must be or how dis-empowering it must feel. But we want to say to you, all you have to do is make the best effort you can right now, to fork a little bit in the direction of what you want - that's all the work is.

Every moment of every day, you have these forks where you can go closer toward something that you want or further from something that you want.

You want to demand the world give you what you want. And we say, the world cannot give you what you are demanding. The world is giving you what you're attracting. The world cannot give you what you're demanding; the world is giving you what you're offering vibrationally and nobody can change what you're offering vibrationally - but you. We think the reason that you may not be very good at it, yet, is because you want to change too much, too fast. You want the manifestation to change, right now. And we want you to just take this opportunity to mold your vibration. Because as you take this opportunity to mold your vibration and this one and this one and this one and this one, not only do you feel better along the way, not only do you have more friendly clerks across the counter, not only do you uplift rather than make people feel terrible, you feel better along your way. Your journey is brighter and brighter. And ah, the manifestations that reach out to you, the people that you rendezvous with, they are equivalent to the vibrational forks that you take in the road.

You are the creator of your own reality because you are the chooser of the thought right now. Don't be hard on yourself. If you're standing in a place where you've been chopped off at the knees, where you've been hit in the gut, where you're feeling awful, don't feel bad. Don't beat up on yourself for not being able to choose the best thought you've ever thought. Just choose the best thought you can find from where you are, In other words, just fork off gently in the direction of what is important to you. And before you know it, your path will get brighter and sweeter and brighter and sweeter. And the people who watch you will say, "You know, you amaze me. Things go well everywhere you go. Why is that so?" And you say, "I've come to expect it." And many of them will say, "Agh." They don't want to hear how you expect things to go well. They'll say, "Oh, that's because you're rich. Oh, that's because you have an entourage that travels with you." We promise you, no entourage can buck your current. There is no one in the world who can prepare your path for you, you see. You are all as rich as everyone else because you all have the resources of the Universe at your fingertips. And when you take the time, when you care enough to take the time to find the better-feeling thought, now, you're moving toward something that will please you.

Every step you take, you are marching toward a manifestation. And if you feel good while you're stepping - you are marching, marching, marching toward things that are going to delight you when they get there. And if you are ornery, if you're unhappy, if you are frustrated, if you are blameful, if you are angry, if you are hateful, if you are revengeful, if you are fearful, if you are depressed - you are marching, marching, marching toward things that are going to augment that feeling of depression, of anger, of frustration. In other words, the way you feel must net you more stuff that feels like the way you feel.

The better it gets, the better it gets, the better it gets, the worse it gets; the worse it gets, the worse it gets. You cannot defy the Laws of the Universe.
Please give it up! Stop trying to use your words and your action for the stuff that attitude, mood and vibration are to do. In other words, mold yourself into place. Do the vibrational work before you do the action work; the action work will be a fraction of what it has been.

If you take the time to do the vibrational work first, you won't have to offer nearly as much action. You'll begin to discover that the things that are important for you just unfold for you because the Universe is at your fingertips. The fairies of the Universe are there for you. You are the center of an enormous entourage that means to please you.

And when you, through your magnificent deciphering of contrast, give birth to a rocket of desire, that rocket of desire is duly noted, understood and absolutely agreed with by all of the resources of the Universe. And now all you've got to do, is to get in the vibrational compliance with what you are asking for. (Isn't that nice to know?)

There are three steps to the Creative Process:

Step One: you don't have to worry about; contrast makes you take that step. Contrast causes you to desire or focus or preference.

Step Two: not your work, anyway. Source and all of the resources of Source answer your request. That's that vibrational alignment. That's that one point of vibrational relativity which happens instantaneously.

So, your only work is Step Three. And Step Three is:

Can I find a thought right now that feels a little better than the thought I've been thinking? That's all Step Three is. Finding a thought that causes me to feel a vibration (or a feeling) of relief. So, there is allowing of what I want or disallowing of what I want. There is allowing of what I want or resisting what I want. You are either practicing the art of allowing or the art of resisting. When you're forking off toward things you want, you're practicing the art of allowing. When you're forking off to things you don't want, you're practicing the art of resistance. And every day and every moment of your life experience is a perfect reflection of how you've been forking.

Good Thing It Wasn't A Coconut


Fifteen years ago, when my son was 3 years old, we lived on the island of Maui in Hawaii. We'd often go to a private waterfall to swim which required hiking in through a bit of jungle. On the way back from the falls one day, we noticed a big papaya tree with some nice ripe papayas on it. We wanted to take some home with us, so we found a long stick and shook a large papaya off the tree. It came down hard and fast, falling right where my son was standing. The stem of the papaya nicked his forehead, cutting him above his eye.
A couple of days later while shopping, a local Hawaiian woman asked me what happened to his forehead, since he now had a scab where the papaya hit him. I told the woman that a papaya fell on him, she smiled real big and said "Oh...good thing it wasn't a coconut!"
To this day I'll think of what that woman said when things are challenging or I feel like I was a victim somehow. It could always be worse. It could have been a coconut that hit him.
Recently my husband and I have had some challenges that we could have considered unlucky. We're traveling in the Caribbean right now and were staying for a week in a beautiful old Mediterranean style house that had the most incredible ocean view that I've ever seen anywhere. The second night we were there it stormed and rained harder than it has all year. There was thunder and lightening and it was a bit scary. Then the roof started leaking...in 7 different places! Two of the places were over the bed...another directly over the toilet, so when you used the toilet you'd get soaked.
I thought of getting the umbrella to keep dry but then it stopped raining. By that time we had a small river running through the place so we gathered all the towels we could find to soak up the water. The rain left the ceiling above the toilet in the bathroom soggy and needing repair, pieces of plaster were crumbling down and falling on the floor. It didn't rain again for 2 days, then early the next morning it started coming down really hard. I woke up  from the sound and got up to use the bathroom. Water was dripping on my head from the leak above the toilet. About 3 minutes after I had gone back to bed I heard a loud crash. My husband and I wondered what it might be, he went to look around but didn't see anything. It wasn't until a little later when I went into the bathroom to brush my teeth that I noticed the huge chunks of plaster in the toilet and all over the floor. The leak made the plaster heavy and a big piece fell off right into the toilet where I had been just minutes earlier. Good thing I wasn't there or it would have hit me on the head and by the way it sounded it would have hurt.
So the moral of this story is, it could always be worse. We used this as an opportunity to look for the ways we were lucky.
It was a good thing the storm waited until we were off the plane before it hit, flying during that would have been frightening. It's a good thing that we got all of our luggage into the house before it rained for hours without stopping. And it's a good thing the leaks above the bed woke us up or we wouldn't have seen the streams of water running through the house heading right for all of our luggage!
Oh...after the rain stopped, the refrigerator motor went out and we had no refrigeration...it's a good thing we were only staying a week!
We actually had a wonderful relaxing time and feel really blessed to have had the time in this lovely home.

Abraham-Hicks Daily Quote




A belief is nothing more than a chronic pattern of thought, and you have the ability—if you try even a little bit—to begin a new pattern, to tell a new story, to achieve a different vibration, to change your point of attraction. The Law of Attraction is responding to your vibration, and you can easily change your vibrational point of attraction by visualizing the lifestyle you desire and holding your attention upon those images until you begin to feel relief, which will indicate that a true vibrational shift has occurred.



You see, you're giving others too much power as you even acknowledge how they make you feel. What you've got to decide is how I'm going to feel. We would go to a Virtual Reality and we would practice feeling good. Manifestations come on the heels of what you've conjured in thought

Abraham-Hicks Daily Quote


Here is the Abraham-Hicks daily quote that I receive in my email each day. It's not coincidence that it reflects the the topic I posted yesterday.
That's how the law of attraction works. It's really fun to see.

Life Will Always Be Working Out for Me. . .

I like understanding that things are always evolving, and while there are many things that could be better where I am, it is not really a problem because "where I am" is constantly changing to something better. I like knowing that as I look for the best things around me where I am, those things become more prevalent in my experience.

It is fun to know that things are always working out for me, and as I watch for the evidence of that . . . I see more evidence of that every day.

Expand Your Havingness

I have a friend that is such a delight to be around and it's because she's happy.
One way she stays happy is by continually acknowledging all the good she has in her life. It may seem trivial, but hearing her mention how much fun she had shopping at a yard sale we went to and talking in detail about the great lunch we just had makes it more pleasurable to be around her. It allows me to relive the moment again and again, and each time it's just as pleasurable as the first. It also helps me to develop the habit of noticing how nice things are in my own life.
We live in a society that focuses on looking at what's wrong. The media is a classic example of this. Socially, it's perfectly acceptable to talk about your latest ailments or surgery publicly, but taboo to speak of having had great sex or even mentioning how thrilled you are to be making a lot of money or having an exceptionally great time. That's considered bragging.
I have a relative that can afford to travel a lot. She only has to work a couple of days a week and can take off whenever she wants. She's been having a blast seeing the world. I think it's wonderful, but some people are envious of her lifestyle.
If we're really living the life we desire and going after our own dreams, then we'd be truly happy when we see others succeeding and having a fun life.
So I'm inviting you to try an experiment, to deliberately look for good in your daily life. Behave as if good things are just around the corner waiting for you to find them. You'll be amazed at how much beauty you'll begin to see and how much
'good luck' you'll start to have. Life is what we make it. Dreams happen when we're enjoying ourselves, that is when we're in a state of allowing the miracles of the universe in. If you acknowledge all the good you already have, and make every segment in your day as pleasant as possible, then what you'll end up with is a happy, special life. See how much fun you can have, each moment of each day.

Expect What You Want

What do you expect out of life? What are you wanting?
When you expect that things will work out the way you like, and expect that things will get better and better, they do.
Here are a couple of Abraham-Hicks videos telling How To Get More Of What You're Wanting.







Abraham-Hicks Daily quote


Whatever you are giving your attention to is already vibrating. And when you give your attention to it, if you maintain your focus for as little as 17 seconds, you begin to include its vibration, whatever it is, in your vibration. When you see something you want, and you give it your attention, and you say yes to it, you are including whatever its vibration is in your vibration. When you see something you do not want, and you shout no at it, you are including whatever its vibration is in your vibration. In this vibrational world, which is everything, you are far more vibrational beings than you are verbal beings. You are communicating with everyone far more on a vibrational basis, than you are on a verbal basis.

Abraham-Hicks Daily Quote


You have more harmony points with every person on the planet than you have disharmony points, because there is much more of you that is in harmony with your Core than you realize or that most of you allow. The closer you come to being in harmony with your Source Energy, the more in harmony you are with each other. When you think about other people and what they think of you, do you understand that what they think of you has very little to do with what you are? It has mostly to do with the habits of thought that they have developed. It has more to do with them as thinkers than it does with you as the subject of their thought. If nothing is more important to you than that you feel good, you can form a fantasy about someone who is in your life and they will begin to modify to meet your fantasy, because Law of Attraction is a very powerful thing.

Abraham-Hicks Daily Quote



Is it reality, or is it not reality? All things are reality.
Even if only one is imagining it, it is a reality in that the thought has been offered and someone, who has the ability to translate that vibration, will perceive it. It must be fair to say that anything that can be perceived must be reality. Because, as creators, your reality depends upon what you are willing to imagine and allow.

Where To Find Happiness


How happy are you?

Would you say that you're happy, most of the time, sometimes or perhaps not very often.

Would you like to be happier?
What do you believe makes you happy?

Some of the things I've noticed that bring me happiness are, having a plan and seeing that I'm moving towards my goals. Having fun doing things that are fun for me, like snorkeling, swimming in the ocean, laying in the sun, hiking, most anything outdoors, in nice weather. Being so completely engaged in something, like writing, watching a good movie, gardening or some project where time doesn't exist. Spending my time as I choose, having control over what I do each day makes me happy. My cats add to my happiness, having loving, positive, happy people in my life adds to my happiness. Seeing other peoples success and happiness makes me happy. I've noticed I'm the happiest when I'm doing what I really want to be doing in life and not what I think I'm suppose to be doing. It's much easier to appreciate what I have, when it's what I want. I'm also less likely to be concerned with what others are doing or saying because I'm enjoying my life too much to care.

The Abraham-Hicks exercise "The Rampage Of Appreciation" found in their book Ask and It is Given
http://www.abraham-hicks.com/lawofattractionsource/askitisgiven.php is an excellent way to develop your appreciation muscle for looking at what's good and right in life.


Also Barbara De Angelis has written a book called Real Moments that describes how our lives are made up of many little moments that bring us happiness.

Did you know that Barbara DeAngelis was married to John Gray the author of Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus? http://home.marsvenus.com/
They were both involved with the TM (Transcendental Meditation) movement back in the 70's.

Here's a link to her book Real Moments: http://www.amazon.com/Real-Moments-Discover-Secret-Happiness/dp/0440507294

A quote by Barbara DeAngelis : "Love is a choice you make from moment to moment."
I agree and believe the same thing about happiness.


Here's a good article about happiness that I found online:

Written by Alex Blackwell

How we achieve happiness can be different for each one of us. Our passions, expectations, life experiences, and even our personalities all contribute to the level of happiness we experience in our lives. Some find happiness in their careers while others prefer the bliss found in their marriages or other intimate relationship.

No matter how you define happiness for yourself, there are certain universal and time-proven strategies to bring, and sustain, more happiness into your life. The following 14 ways to live a happy life can be adapted and even customized to fit your needs. Over time, these strategies will become positive and life-changing habits that will begin to bring more happiness, joy and peace into your life.

1. Notice What’s Right

Some of us see the glass as being half-full, while others see the glass as half-empty. The next time you are caught in traffic, begin thinking how nice it is to have a few moments to reflect on the day, focus on a problem you have been trying to solve, or brainstorm on your next big idea. The next time you are in a slow line at the grocery store, take the opportunity to talk to the person near you or pick up a magazine and do some reading. Take all that life throws out you and re-frame it with what’s right about the situation. At the end of the day, you will be more content, peaceful and happy. Take the time to begin to notice what’s right and see the world change in front of your eyes.

2. Be Grateful

How many times do you say the words “thank you,” in a day? How many times do you hear these same words? If you are doing the first thing, saying the “thank yous,” the latter will naturally happen. Learn to be grateful and you will be open to receive an abundance of joy and happiness.

3. Remember the Kid You Were

Do you remember how to play? I’m not referring to playing a round of golf or a set of tennis. I’m talking about playing like you did when you were a child – a game of tag; leap frog, or street baseball when the bat is a broken broom handle and the bases are the parked cars. One way to find or maintain your happiness is to remember the kid you were and play!

4. Be Kind

There is no question that by merely watching acts of kindness creates a significant elevation in our moods and increases the desire for us to perform good deeds as well. Kindness is indeed contagious and when we make a commitment to be kind to ourselves and to others we can experience new heights of joy, happiness and enthusiasm for our lives.

5. Spend Time with Your Friends

Although an abundant social and romantic life does not itself guarantee joy, it does have a huge impact on our happiness. Learn to spend time with your friends and make the friendships a priority in your life.

friends-at-the-beach.jpg

6. Savor Every Moment

To be in the moment is to live in the moment. Too often we are thinking ahead or looking ahead to the next event or circumstance in our lives, not appreciating the “here and now.” When we savor every moment, we are savoring the happiness in our lives.

7. Rest

There are times when we need the time to unwind, decompress, or to put it simply, just “to chill.” Life comes at all of us hard and fast. Time, as do the days on the calendar, keeps going forward at its own natural pace, which is not always the pace we would choose. Fatigue, stress and exhaustion may begin to settle in on us faster than we may think, or notice. The best remedy for this is indeed rest.

8. Move!

The expression a “runner’s high” does not infer an addiction, but a feeling or a state of mind – a state of euphoria. There is no question exercise, or any physical exertion, elevates your mood and enhances a more positive attitude as well as fosters better personal self-esteem and confidence. Indeed, one way to increase your happiness is to move!

baby-smiling.jpg

9. Put on a Happy Face

Sometimes we have to fake it until we make it. I’m not suggesting that we not be honest, real or authentic, but I’m suggesting, sometimes, we just need to put on a happy face and keep moving forward. Researchers claim that smiling and looking like we are happy will indeed make us happier. Studies further show that if we act like we are happy then we can experience greater joy and happiness in our lives.

10. Pursue Your Goals

The absence of goals in our lives, or more specifically avoiding to pursue our goals, makes us feel like we are stuck and ineffective. The pursuit of goals in our personal lives, in our relationships, or with our careers, is the difference between having a mediocre life or a life full of passion and enthusiasm. pursue your goals and watch your happiness soar.

11. Finding Your Calling

Some find meaning in religion or spirituality while others find purpose in their work or relationships. Finding your calling may be much more than accomplishing one simple strategy for increasing your happiness, but having a sense of purpose – of feeling like you are here for a reason – can perhaps bring the greatest joy of all

12. Get into the Flow

Flow is the form of joy, excitement and happiness that occurs when we are so absorbed in an activity we love that we can loose ourselves and time seems to stand still. What creates flow is unique to each one of us. To find and sustain true happiness in our lives, we must get off the sidelines and get into the flow.

13. Play to Your Strengths

One way to achieve flow is by understanding and identifying our strengths and core values, and then begin to use these every day. Once we aware of our strengths and we begin to play to your strengths we can better incorporate them in all aspects of our lives.

14. Don’t Overdo It

Know when to say when. What gives you joy and happiness the first time may not work the second time. Too much of a good thing may begin not to feel as good if the “thing” becomes more of a routine, or an expectation. Set healthy and reasonable boundaries for yourself and don’t overdo it.

Abraham-Hicks Daily Quote





This is the first of a series of Abraham-Hicks daily quotes that I'll be posting:


Daily Law of Attraction Quotation


The most valuable skill or talent that you could ever develop is that of directing your thoughts toward what you want—to be adept at quickly evaluating all situations and then quickly coming to the conclusion of what you most want—and then giving your undivided attention to that. There is a tremendous skill in deliberately directing your own thoughts that will yield results that cannot be compared with results that mere action can provide.
