Trusting in Yourself: A Conversation with Abraham
One of things I wanted to talk about when I had my opportunity to spend an evening with Esther Hicks and the ascended masters known as Abraham was the idea of trusting yourself. Am I on the right track saying, “When you trust in yourself, you are trusting in the wisdom that created you”? Here’s what Abraham had to say:
Wayne Dyer: I’ve often said, “When you trust in yourself, you are trusting in the wisdom that created you.”
Abraham: And how do you do that? You’ve got to feel your way to it, don’t you? Because if you learned it from your mother, she wasn’t all that trustworthy. She sometimes was in a really bad mood when she told you what to do.
And so you have to train yourself into trusting. It is about practicing the good-feeling thoughts until you are able to continually align with your Broader Self, or as you are saying, with the wisdom that created you.
If you practice the vibrations of this high-flying disc so that you are doing it on purpose, when you begin slipping from it, you will recognize that you are slipping and then you can do something about it. In time, with practice, you can get control of your own vibration.
And when you get control of your own vibration, the first thing that happens is your sense of self-worth comes into place—because the entire Universe is assisting you. You feel clarity, and everything works out. It’s like a concierge leading you everywhere that you want to go. There are no missteps. Things no longer feel difficult. In fact, things that at one time felt difficult often feel humorous to you.
Esther knew that she was on the high-flying disc in a more consistent way when one day something had fallen behind a very heavy chest and she couldn’t get it out easily. She was laughing as she was trying to engineer how to get it out.
Sixty days earlier, she would have been swearing about it. But now Esther is just enjoying figuring out how to fish it out rather than complaining that she has more important things to do than fishing objects out from behind furniture.
Isn’t life really about these moments and these moments and these moments? People are waiting for their dream vacation or their dream relationship or their dream car or their dream job. And we say, Later is never going to come, because it is always now, now, now, now, now. Now alignment or not. Now alignment or not. Now alignment or not.
And when you show yourself that you can have now alignment, now alignment, now alignment, now you’re living the way you intended to live.
Wayne: Do you have to almost catch yourself when you’re having a thought that’s misaligned and correct it? I mean, it seems to me it’s stuck in here in our subconscious mind in some way.
Abraham: It sort of is.
Wayne: So you get ahold of this thought and you realize, I just had a judgmental thought, so I’m not going to do that again. But for me, I have to go back and correct the thought. And then I have to correct the behavior.
Abraham: Yes, but you slow yourself down unnecessarily because that is going about it the hard way. While you slumber, your momentum stops. Then when you awaken, you are in a state of nonresistance and so it is easier to find the high-flying disc. And then the momentum will increase from that place of nonresistance. It is a much easier way of going about it.
We are not saying that there may not be behavior that you may want to change. Of course there is. Often when you are offering effort about something, you are activating an opposing vibration to your desire. And while you don’t mean to be doing it, you are actually practicing the vibration of resistance, rather than the vibration of allowing.
