I came to the Abraham Hicks material after years of reading non-fiction books trying to find ways to get the most out of life. The deeper I got the more it all started to say the same thing. Everything is energy. The external world is a reflection of what’s going on on the inside. And you have absolute power to create the life you want.
Abraham does the best job of summing it all up in the easiest to understand way. ie. It matters how you feel. How you feel lets your know if your connected to the flow of everything you want. To your highest self. It makes you realize how important your vibration is.
My goal became to raise my vibration as much as I could. My first steps were to stop gossiping, stop talking bad about or judging people, send people love instead. I experimented with my diet and started exercising. Tried many different ways of eating and being as active physically as I am I eventually found the paleo diet to fit me best. I started a ‘Vibration board’ where I would pin up sayings that kept me in high vibration. Helped me to not ‘doubt in the dark what I knew to be true in the light.’
The next thing I added was meditation. I would meditate every day using binaural beats like Brain Sync with stereo headphones. This is when I started seeing strange things happen. My world slowed down. I took in more information. A gap widened between any stimulus and my response. It gave me more choice. I started choosing more things that made me feel good, that were good energy.
Since then my life has been the demonstration. It started out with smaller things. One day I was walking in the woods after meditating and before class. I was listening to Stuart Wilde and he mentioned the Bhagavad Gita. I had a deep desire to acquire that book. Like YES I want to read this!
I kept following my impulses. I went early to class. Stopped to eat where I usually wouldn’t. Took a different route than I usually did. And as I was walking through a large field of people a man walked up to me and handed me…the Bhagavad Gita.
I got Shivers. He was a traveling Buddhist monk. I took this picture October 2010. That was one of the first things that solidified for me that this stuff was for real. We really do create our reality. That we are all magic wizards is how I like to put it.
I realized what you give away comes back to you. I’d have a couple dollars in my wallet. Someone would come up to me and ask for money and I’d give them it. Then later in the night I would find a $10 bill sitting on the ground. If I kept my vibration high and just followed whatever I felt like doing, wherever I felt like going the best I could, things just started unfolding beautifully for me. I kept on diving in.
I would seriously just listen to my inner guidance and walk. Or do whatever I had the impulse to do. Bashar says ‘follow your highest excitement in every moment.’ He says ‘abundance is having everything you need WHEN you need it.’ That helped me see my life as already abundant. I didn’t have a lot of money. Or even enough to pay the rent or eat it would seem like at times. But I would just trust and sure enough it would be there when I needed it.
I started having the belief that the universe supported me. That everything was always working out for me. Anything that happened I knew was leading me to more understanding. Even the most difficult things I would know that ‘this too will pass’ and I would be a stronger person because of it. The contrast would lead me to more of those things I truly wanted but might not have the perspective to realize it at the time.
I started realizing the whole ‘everything is now’ ‘be in the now’ ‘all you have is now.’ I saw myself sacrifice my health and my relationships to play online poker. I see so many people stick to a job they hate because of some carrot they’ll get 3 years from now. I realized there is no three years from now. I would no longer sacrifice how I felt now for what I might get later. Abraham Hicks helped me realize that to get what you wanted later you had to have the feeling of it NOW. Be happy now regardless of the conditions and the conditions will change to reflect your happiness. It’s the journey you’ll enjoy much more than any destination.
As I was dialing in my mindset and health I knew the next step was my relationships. I was very shy when first meeting people. I have a strange sense of humor and I felt awkward. I didn’t even like calling the pizza man to order a pizza for fear he would judge me if I messed up what I wanted. But I’d recently broken up with a girlfriend of 7 years and it was time to get into the dating world.
I felt that in order to have an amazing girl (or friends) in my life I would have to overcome shyness, make new friends easily and become an amazing version of myself. I was doing that with the diet, exercise, meditation, by feeling good and maintaining a high vibration. I wanted to have choices in who I dated rather than feeling stuck with someone because I was scared I couldn’t find anyone else. I started introducing myself to strangers. I kept doing it until it was no longer awkward. Until I could easily find things to talk about.
I got a job in a bar. Well, the job seemed to get me. My life seemed to line up in synchronicity at this point. One thing would lead to the next which would provide the next opportunity. Working at a bar was perfect in that I was continually exposed to new people. I realized what group of friends I wanted to be a part of a couple months prior and now found myself in that exact group of friends.
Each new experience would give desire to new preferences just like Abraham would say. I was dating more and more and learning what I wanted out of a relationship. I would date one person and she would show me 5 things I loved in a partner and a few I did not want. The next person would do the same. Each person would seem to teach me what I needed at the time giving me a more clear vision of what I wanted.
Life was good. My friend circle was in place. I had the kinds of relationships I wanted at the time. Everything was working out for me. But as always, I was brought to new desire. I realized the importance of having close friends you can depend on rather than having hundreds of acquaintances or bring popular. I had the desire for that one amazing woman who would line up with me in all areas of importance rather than many girlfriends. Someone who understood as I do that we are all magical wizards.
I realized that life was like a cup for me. If I emptied it out it would fill in with the new things I wanted. I began to trust it at this point. I had lost everything before. Emptied my cup and it refilled with everything I wanted. It was time to empty my cup again. I took a month long road trip exploring Colorado and mountain biking in Moab. Two things I knew from that trip. I had to move to Colorado and I wanted a Jeep to take on the off road trails of Moab.
When I got back to Milwaukee I was at the bar sitting with a friend. I didn’t know him real well but we played hockey together and went golfing a couple times. In conversation he said “I’m moving to Colorado my lease is up in august.” so I said…”I’m moving to Colorado MY lease is up in august.” I had a roommate.
One of my favorite things in Milwaukee was a running trail next to the Milwaukee River. I would do 8 mile loops a couple times a week. Fancy that, the house my roommate found was right next to a river in Denver with a similar running trail. Of course it was.
I was listening to Abraham Hicks pretty much every day at this point. I didn’t have a job in Denver and I didn’t want to get one. I was meditating, eating right, working out in a park everyday and I stopped drinking. My vibe was on point. I was doing some internet things that paid me a little and I made ends meet. Money always seemed to be there when I needed it. I saw it like the story behind ‘why’ money came was the illusion I needed to allow it to show up and still fit into my reality. But that the money would always be there when I needed it. Only the story would be different. But I still wanted a story with some extra money.
Life seems to work slowly when you’re wanting something and quickly when you look back on it. I wanted a group of friends, I got it. I wanted a certain kind of relationship, I got it. I wanted to be in Denver, I moved there. I wanted a Jeep I could take on the trails of Moab and 4 months later I had one!
The internet things I was doing were slow going. I didn’t like sitting in the house alone anymore and wanted to start working with people. Some days instead of ‘doing anything productive’ I would just lay in bed and feel good. I’m thinking if this Abraham thing is real…then this is the real work. I’ll just lay in bed, feeling the best I can and do only what I felt like doing. I’d just cuddle in a ball of joy and vision myself living the life I wanted. Starting general then feeling into the details of all the different life areas as if I was there, now.
But eventually not having money spit me out. It was time to change things up. I didn’t like working alone everyday. I wanted to work with people, make some new friends, gain experience, get out of the house and have some spending money. It was time to try out a job.
I put my application on some job boards and was contacted shortly after by a local sales company. I got an interview. The interview lead to an all day job shadow. After the job shadow I knew I got the job but they were going to call and tell me for sure that night. On the drive home I was talking to my mother and decided not to take the job. To keep looking for something else.
I hung up the phone and a mentor I had in Milwaukee called me out of nowhere. We had not talked in months. He said he always thought this was the kind of job I should get. Commission sales would teach me more than anything else. I changed my mind and when the job called right after I got off the phone I accepted it.
That job taught me I was indeed good at sales. It improved my social skills, let me practice pubic speaking and got me in front of small business owners everyday. I took new hires on interviews of my own and got my first teammate. Her name was Haley. I wasn’t looking for a relationship at the time but she was awesome. Pretty, smart, willing to work on herself, and she understood the Abraham material. We clicked.
Initially I was dedicated to the job. I thought she was awesome and could tell she dug me but I wanted to improve ‘professionally.’ She was on my team and it would be bad form to take it any further. That’s when the job started spitting me out. They stopped letting me do the public speaking, some people in the office were being crass. It wasn’t fun anymore.
One thing led to another and Haley and I started seeing each other. We both quit the job. That’s when things really started to speed up. After about a week of seeing each other, Colorado legalized marijuana and we decide to visit a dispensary and try some edible mints. Our excitement then lead us to a crystal shop. There was a ‘psychic’ there named IxChel and we decided to get a reading.
We walked in and she immediately goes ‘Oh you guys were married in a past life.’ She told us we would have gifted children. I’m thinking, this is awkward we practically just met. She went on to touch on nearly everything Haley and I had been talking about at the time. She also told me I would be a millionaire, maybe even a billionaire. I have big dreams but maybe this ladies just really good at telling us what we wanted to hear. Maybe the mints got us feelin’ spacy. It felt real enough. Zoom forward a month and one blood moon later…
We go back to see her. She’s spot on about everything again. Then IxChel says ‘you need to be careful about being pregnant, you’re very fertile.’ We look at each other like…uh… Haley says ‘I’m late on my period actually.’ IxChel shuffles the deck and consults with the spirits. She says ‘I hope I’m wrong but I think you’re pregnant, you’d better check.’
We leave somewhat stunned. Haley’s a bit panicked. We talk about that one time on the blood moon. I’m thinking it’s set in the stars. Haley goes into Walgreens. We go home. She takes the test. Negative. She takes the test again. Negative. She’s thinking she’s not pregnant. I’m pretty sure it’s too early and the test is wrong. A few days later she takes another test. Sure enough, she’s pregnant. Ixchell knew before the tests did.
We went back a couple months later and IxChell told us it was a boy. As well as bringing clarity to everything else that were hot topics in our lives at the time. Haley’s not sure if it’s true, I start coming up with boy names. We later find out that…it’s a boy. We named him Phoenix. A name found through another interesting story of synchronicity for a different day.
Everyone told me I needed to get a job. They were afraid we wouldn’t be able to support Phoenix or ourselves. They didn’t think my internet stuff would ever work. Haley’s grandma actually said I should get a job washing dishes and work my way up… Like that would solve the 80k in student loan debt I have. I knew they didn’t understand. I knew I wouldn’t be happy trading my time for money and I knew if I just keep following my highest excitement everything would CONTINUE to work out for me, for us 🙂
Zoom forward to today. Haley and I moved into the most perfect place for us right now. Closer to boulder. My favorite city. We’ve been to an Abraham workshop and listen almost daily. We have the most amazing 7 month old son named Phoenix. There is a playground for him right outside our window. A pool he has fun swimming in. We have a beautiful home with everything we need.
The apartment we’re in has a giant field. Which ended up being perfect for the quadcopter hobby I got involved in after we moved here. My internet things started clicking. I get to stay home with my son. We get to go hiking or swimming everyday if we want. When he’s sleeping or playing I get to stand at my desk and work on the projects I want to see in the world. Haley has a job at a Montessori school which is perfect for learning how to teach Phoenix as he grows up. And Phoenix and I get to visit her on her lunch breaks!
The more I’ve learned to trust the more quickly thoughts seem to turn to things. I see clearly now how directly a reflection the physical world is of what I have going on with me. If I have some off momentum, if I get sped up too fast and away from harmony my world starts to become more chaotic. Things will literally break around me.
As I stay in alignment. As I reach for better feeling thoughts. As I focus on ‘only’ the things I want to expand. More and more my life unfolds in the most beautiful ways. Way better than if I would have picked it logically. I’m really starting to get good at this. To maintain my high vibration. I can also notice the ‘vibration’ of other people. I see how what they are thinking and the choices they are making are contributing to the disk they are flying on. How that disk has become their life experience and is creating the events around them. I’m excited to teach this way of being to my son and continue to live it with my family.
I’m super grateful for finding this path. I LOVE how my life is unfolding. I’m sooo happy for where I am. I’m soo excited for where I’m going. It’s great how simple Abraham makes this message. I love the insights I have come to. I love being able to share this message with other people and hear how much its helped them in their lives. It’s so cool to see the world turning to love and light. I love knowing that I can’t get it wrong and I’ll never get it done. I love feeling good. I love being in the vortex. I love knowing that things are always working out for me. It’s so great finding other people who are on this path. I love how active the state of Colorado is. I love having the freedom to spend time with my Son. I love Haley and how amazing she is. I love that we found each other. I love our story. I love what is unfolding.
I love understanding that the shift is vibrational. And that the law of attraction is demonstrating that shift.
There is great love here for you.
And as always I remain, incomplete.
Love & Light,
