HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE ABE CANARY ISLAND CRUISE



Ramona opened by welcoming members and guests, and asking for “appreciations” since the last meetup.

The meditation was self-inspired while listening to Karen Drucker’s “I Am So Blessed” which is track 4 on Karen’s CD “The Heart of Healing” available at KarenDrucker.Com.

Our opening video was Abraham-Hicks Rampage of Ease andFlow

Our meetup provided a recap of the recent Abraham-Hicks cruise to the Canary Islands. A big “THANK YOU” to Jill and Duffy for sharing their perspectives with the group. 

Here are some random comments from Abraham during the workshops.

Abraham started by saying “Are you ready? Because we are ready for you!” The main theme was this:  You get what you think and what you feel. So think about what you want and feel good about it and it will come to you.

Trust that your desire is unfolding perfectly. 

Train yourself not to rely on conditions to be perfect in order to feel good, happy, joyful or better. You can feel better anyway.


You are all worthy because you and Source co-created your desires and launched the rockets of desire together.

Unconditional alignment – look at everything through the eyes of Source.  Your alignment is your number one priority.

There is a big difference between looking for people and things to appreciate and looking for people to appreciate you.

The greatest gift you can give yourself is to give up caring about what anyone else thinks, especially about you. Remember, “Never explain yourself. Your friends don’t need it and your enemies won’t believe you.”

Free yourself from the false premise that others can prevent you from being yourself. Take back your power and vibration. You are so much more than the personality you believe you are.
Without contrast there is no ability to focus. Contrast or negative emotions help us fine tune our clarity.

Stop trying to wrestle problems to the ground and killing them, or having a lobotomy to stop thinking contrast thoughts that in reality provide clarity. Just acknowledge you get clarity every day. Don’t overcome. Instead become!

Do not demand that conditions change to take you to that feeling of vitality/clarity/alignment. They won’t get you there; your thoughts and feelings will. Try to reach for the feeling you want without the conditions changing.

Abe Processes – be careful when you use them, especially if they feel like work or become tedious. Also, they can be self-defeating because the unchanging condition gets in the way of your alignment. Your work is to improve your vibration so you can receive Source’s answer. Once you are connected to Source the processes can be beneficial.

When you find you are not in the perfect place, what can you do?  Do Not Panic! Panic or freaking out is an unnatural habit we learned somewhere along the way. Do not be hard on yourself for not being in the perfect place. What you are reaching for is happy anticipation. If you fall into a hole there is always a way out. Even if it appears there is no way out, something may fall in and you can climb out over it.

Some other ideas from our group.  Smile; notice the beauty around us like the trees; listen to music; focus on what’s right; remember to breathe deeply; show gratitude; remember everything is always working out for me; I’ve got this; use segment intending aka pre-paving; look at the squirrel. 

Do not focus on excluding what you do not want (debt; weight) because you are focusing on and attracting what you do not want into your vibration.

Best way to let go/release people is to love them the way Source does. Focus on their positive aspects and in that alignment you will get what you really want and release them or they will align with what you want and stay in place.

Do not focus on the resentment of others.  Enjoy who you are and don’t worry about what others think about you. This is where clarity comes in. When asked about why you did something, just say it felt right, it felt like the best decision at the time – end of story!

Remember IT (whatever IT is) will come to you. You cannot chase it. Step back from the specifics and focus on what’s going right. Feel good unconditionally. Focus on the Source part, not the condition part of your desire. Free yourself from seeing the world through the eyes of others – see through the eyes of Source.

We are the point of power.  We create that which is wanted and our job is to create the atmosphere so it can come to us.

The closing video was Abraham Life is Good.

EMBRACING BEING HAPPY NOW



Ramona welcomed members and guests and asked them to share their appreciations since last meeting. 

The meditation was provided by one of our Burbank LOA members, Krista Haitz.  It is a poem by Charlie Chaplin beautifully presented via You-tube. It is entitled “GuidedMeditation Poem - As I Began to Love Myself”.  

The opening video was "What is Happiness".

The discussion centered on what it takes to just get happy and stay there. Some definitions were presented for clarity.

THE HIGH FLYING DISC was described by visualizing a funnel cloud and picturing it being comprised of discs starting with the smaller ones at the bottom and getting larger as you ascend the cloud. At the base is the lowest flying disc comprised of feelings of despair and depression.  As you move up to the discs, the bad feelings drop off and are replaced by better feelings. When you feel only these better feelings (happy, thrilled, aligned, excited) you are on a high flying disc. Remember, with a funnel cloud the most destruction happens at the base, in the lowest flying disc.

WOBBLING is the newest term Abraham uses to describe the teeter-totter effect of going from positive to negative to positive, etc. For example, “I want to be happy, but I need money for that.” Or, “I want a relationship, but am I good enough?”

THE LAW OF ATTRACTION is as real as the law of gravity and they both work in the same way.

WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY?  Responses were children, grandchildren, chocolate, kittens, travel, friends, reading, music, nature, laughing, playing, and ah-ha moments. And then asked “What one word describes what you are missing in your life that you think would make you happier?”  Responses included more money, a life partner, a puppy, world peace, and more time to meditate.

Ever notice how children are always happy? Even those in impoverished areas of Africa play with whatever makeshift toys they have and are happy. How can we be more like children? Responses were by playing, being in the present moment, doing what feels good, relaxation, laughter, and just plain having fun.

THE KEY TO BEING HAPPY IS TO RECOGNIZE OUR SELF-WORTH. Worthiness is our birthright. Overcoming obstacles, resistance and self-doubt can enhance our vibration of worthiness. Esther’s favorite movie is “Groundhog Day” because it emphasizes that we can start over any time we feel the need or desire. 

Every thought, action, person and spirit is a part of our higher self. We need to be more aware of what is going right in our lives. We don’t owe an explanation to anyone – we just need to be in a good feeling place. Remember, never explain yourself: Your friends don’t need it and your enemies won’t believe you. 

OUR THOUGHTS DETERMINE WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN OUR LIVES. The Universe does not listen to our words, it listens to our vibration. If we pre-pave our paths, set the tone, choose to feel good and visualize goodness, the Universe will provide numerous paths for every idea and thought we have. How do we get to the point where we allow this? By being happy, noticing good things, counting our blessings, playing, and being grateful for all we have.

FIND SOMETHING THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY. Think about it and soon other things that make us happy will start flowing into our lives. Observe yourself to determine what you do want – what makes you happy – then get more of that. Don’t focus on the conditions. Focus on fun, happy and clarity. Do not let happiness be conditional on the outcome. Be happy that you can leave conditions out of your ease and flow. Acknowledge that you are part of the same energy that created the world.

LEARN TO BE SATISFIED WITH WHAT IS. Abraham says “Have a sincere desire and expectation that it will unfold just for you. Don’t make statistics a part of your life unless you like those statistics.” Use more emotion and less thought. 

DON’T PARTICIPATE IN “WOE IS ME” STORIES. When someone says “If you think that was bad, wait till you hear this” it can only lead those who participate into a downward spiral from higher flying discs to lower. When someone tries to get you into a “woe is me” discussion, do not participate, and get out of it within 17 seconds. 

An inspiring story is that of a wounded warrior who was told he would never walk again. Watch the video.

Ramona closed the meeting by reading the following quote from Abraham-Hicks and showing the closing video from Abraham-Hicks “Get Happy”.
