Guest: My next question is about the price of gas in the United States. It’s at its highest point historically, and I’m wondering what those of us who are Conscious Deliberate Creators and are on the Leading Edge can do to find the positive aspects in that, to feel good about that, to begin to change the vibration around that.
Abraham: Well, here’s what we would like: We would like it to cost ten times what it does, and you not care… because as long as you care what something costs, you’ve got a limitation set on how much money you think will come into you. So you go to the pump, and the cost of gas is high, all that does is cause you to launch a rocket that says, “I’d like more money to pay for this higher price of gas.” And Source says, “Alrighty, then.” And then all you’ve got to do is bring yourself into alignment with that, you see?
Our favorite story about that was a woman who was talking about her now-husband who was a former husband of someone else to whom he was paying alimony. And his former wife kept taking him back to Court and demanding more money. And they wanted to know what they could do, how they could shut her down. She was taking too much of the money that they wanted to spend on their now-life that they were living together.
And we said, “we wish your now-husband had ten ex-wives and we wish that they were all going to court and asking for more money … because the most they are going to get is 50% usually. And so, if he’s got that many people calling that much money through him, his income is increasing dramatically if he’ll let it and they’re only getting half.
Anything that causes you to want more, when you come into alignment with it, it’s a done deal. So the price of anything doesn’t matter because if you want it, Source is arranging a way, right now, for you to have it – you’ve just got to stop complaining about the price of gas.
So, here’s how it happens. You go to the gas pump – this is exactly how it happens: Jerry and Esther filled up the other day and it was $725, and they were going to drive that gas out, that day. So, as you go to the gas pump and you fill up and you feel that discord of the price of this fuel. In that moment, you launch a rocket of desire that says, “More money for fuel,” and Source Energy says, “Done. Done.”
Then you say, “This costs too much.” So, the money is sitting there, but you don’t have access to it. You say, “It’s terrible what they are doing.” You don’t have access to it. You say, “It’s highway robbery.” You don’t have access to it. You say, “The Bush Administration and their oil cronies are doing this deliberately just to put more money in their pocket.” You don’t have access to it. You REALLY don’t have access to it.
You say, “It’s nice that this gas is available to me.” You start moving in the direction of the improvement in your money for gas. You say, “What I need always come to me.” You start moving toward it. You say, “I have enough flexibility in my budget that I can, for now, put a little more of it here.” You start moving toward it. You say, “I’ve never paid too much attention to what things cost, and I’m not going to make this be an exception.” You start moving toward it. You say, “What I need always flows.” You start moving toward it.
And with enough deliberate training, you move yourself into alignment with this BIG pile of money that’s waiting for you in vibrational escrow for gas or for anything you’ve launched it over there for. And then, you come and you say, “I’m making $20,000 more than I was last time I talked to you.” And we say, “Good, spend some of it on gas.”
[Audience laughter and applause.]
Whatever you want. Whatever you want is there for you. Whatever you want.
So Esther has no concern about dollars and gas. Sometimes, she goes into pay and comes back and Jerry says, “How much was it?” and Esther said, “I don’t know. I didn’t notice.” She signed the ticket because it doesn’t matter. Whatever it costs is what it costs and she was going to get it anyway so what possible difference does it matter? So her answer is usually, “Well, it costs what it costs and it’s there on the ticket if you want to see it.” In other words, it’s irrelevant what it costs, it costs what it costs.
And then they were at a gas station in San Diego last week and they filled up their tank on their Yukon, or they wanted to, but the pump cut them off at $50 and only gave them half a tank. And Esther said, “Well, we could either go again or we could just leave it at that,” and Jerry said, “Let’s just leave it at that. We can fill up again later.” And when Esther went in to get her receipt she heard the woman who had come in behind her say, “I would like $2 worth on pump 3, please.”
And Esther felt that pang because Esther saw that $50 did not give her half a tank and she figures that $2 won’t even show on that woman’s meter. And so, Esther started moving in the wrong direction on this subject of gas, not on her behalf, but on somebody else’s. Esther is not worried about gas prices for herself, but she could listen to enough people that she begins worrying about them and then she’s not contributing to the improvement either, you see.
And so, we want you to understand because we can feel it rippling even in this room that sometimes people feel as they listen to us, “Well, Abraham, you’re just teaching people to be selfish and to not care or worry about what’s happening to anyone else.” And we say, “We want you to care, but we don’t want you to worry.” When you care, you launch into Vibrational Escrow on their behalf. When you worry, you do not help them get to what you’ve launched over there on their behalf.
So, it’s possible…this ties in with your question about ‘who am I’ and ‘why am I here’ and ‘who are the people gathering here in this Abraham energy’… And we say, You care about other people and you will launch rockets of desires on their behalf, but you can’t suffer for them and be catalysts to help them receive improved conditions.
In other words, you’ve got to follow the dream of the improved life for them. As Uplifters, you’ve got to learn to walk your way up the Emotional Scale on behalf of those that you care about because you can’t see them as victims and do them any good. And when you see anybody as a victim, you shoot yourself in the foot.
It’s really interesting how powerful you are and how you’re all tied in with one another. The thoughts you think about other people not only affect you, but they affect the part of their life experience that rendezvous with you.
