When my first Abraham book arrived (The Law of Attraction: The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham), I was so excited. I could feel this was the type of book I would finish in one sitting. I couldn’t wait to devour all the knowledge that could potentially change my life. At this stage I did not know that Abraham was not one person, but a group of consciousness from the non-physical dimension channelled by Esther Hicks. And frankly, as soon as I found out that minor detail, I was really creeped out. In fact, I was so uncomfortable with the idea of channelling, ghosts or anything non-physical, the book went straight onto my bookshelf. I needed time to digest what I had just read. And the book sat there for many weeks until I finally made a decision to pick it up again. I decided that I had nothing to lose by reading it. Regardless of who the authors were, if it could be of benefit to me then it was worth reading. And I could always give it away if I didn’t see any results. Going forward you will notice Abraham being referred to in plural, because they refer to themselves as a group of loving entities. So I started to read, re-read and more importantly, apply their teachings in my daily life.
While I didn’t understand all of the material, most of the practices were incredibly useful, especially Segment Intending. I began using Segment Intending every day, and achieved some amazing successes in my professional relationships with managers and co-workers. Later in this chapter; I will explain how I personally practise Segment Intending.
The more I applied their teachings, the more abundance I was able to manifest and the more interested I became. But it wasn’t until I attended an Abraham Hicks conference in Sydney where I got to watch the incredible manner in which Abraham speaks through Esther Hicks that I really understood that Abraham is infinite intelligence. There were thousands of people in the audience with raised hands, eager to ask their own unique questions. But there was not enough time in one day to have ever y question asked. Yet Abraham was able to intelligently answer the questions of a few people in such a way that ever yone else’s questions were also answered. I certainly had all my questions answered, without having to ask any. Watching Abraham live really helped solidify their love and intelligence in my eyes.
So if you have problem with channelling, as I did, here are some tips from Abraham themselves:
“You could leave the channelling out of it. Call it inspiration; that’s all it is. You don’t call the basketball player a channeller, but he is; he’s an extension of Source Energy. You don’t call the surgeon a channeller, but he is. You don’t call the musician, the magnificent master musician, you don’t call him a channeller, but he is. He’s channelling the broader essence of who he is into the specifics of what he is about.” (Abraham-Hicks.com.)
Going forward, I will refer to the universal creative force as Consciousness, Source Energy or just Source. It is what I am most comfortable with. You may like to refer to this energy as God, Allah, Universe, Spirit, Essence, Inner Being, insert-whatever-you-like-here. It is really up to you and I would recommend you stick with whatever connotation feels better.
What word are you most comfortable with? How do you refer to the energy thats bigger than yours?
