I love this talk by Abraham.
Sometimes I’ll listen to the same Abraham audio 10 or 20 times in a row until I start to really get it. This was the one from today.
I will focus on the first portion of the audio before the questioner talks.
Abraham is talking about getting into the high flying disc, aka high vibration, as soon as we wake up.
Everyone is at the high vibration as soon as they wake up because during sleep, they released “resistance.” Resistance means negative-feeling thoughts.
By default, when we don’t think anything, we raise our vibration. Sleep is a prolonged period of not thinking, a kind of unconscious meditation. Quoting The Dalai Lama, “sleep is the best meditation.”
After 7-9 hours of meditation known as sleep, we will wake up in a high vibration. What we think in those first 17 seconds will set up the momentum for this day and future days.
We have a choice over what we think. Sometimes it feels like thoughts just come into our minds, and they do due to past momentum, but we can choose a new thought on purpose.
Dalai Lama also said, “One small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day.”
And he must know being an expert meditation practitioner most of his life. I read that he meditates something like 5 hours a day. He also sleeps for 8 hours a day. I am sure he is meditating (being mindful, not thinking, chanting mantras) even while being active during the day. Thus his whole day & life is a form of meditation!
Getting back to Abraham. We all wake up at a high vibration because we “meditated” for 7-9 hours or however long we slept. We can choose what to think as our first main thought of the day regardless of what happened yesterday.
We have the power to think on purpose and to focus on purpose and it is easiest to do that first thing in the morning. This is a practice and a discipline, sure, but something that all of us are capable of doing.
We can be aware of how we are thinking and feeling throughout the day. It is within our power to pay attention to how we are feeling during all parts of the day and we can develop the self-discipline to change what we are speaking, hearing, thinking, seeing, reading, doing, or writing as soon as we feel negative emotion. This is also a discipline that gets better with practice.
And we can continue this routine for 30 days, 60 days, 90 days and watch our whole life change. And we have it within our power to practice this for years and years and forever more.
All we can control is this moment. What we think right now. That is my understanding of mindfulness, which is really about mind emptiness. Being present equals empty mind. Empty mind equals high vibration.
Positive thinking also raises vibration. Positive emotions indicate high vibration.
We stack up many of these moments until we are consistently at the high vibrations most of the time and positive momentum will take over to make it easier to stay at the high vibration most of the time.
This is like the flywheel analogy or the tipping point analogy. In the beginning, it takes a lot of effort to move the flywheel a tiny bit. After a while, once momentum takes over, the flywheel keeps moving even with a tiny bit of effort. Another analogy is the snowball that grows larger and larger as it rolls.
We start all of this as soon as we wake up by thinking the best positive thought that is available to us and focusing on it long enough to build positive momentum for the day.
