“The greatest advantage of sleep is the softening of resistance. Slumber stops thought. You tune into your Source during sleep for replenishment. Action equals resistance and keeps you from replenishment. Your natural guidance says to rest. Lie in bed and feel happy and replenished. The body likes to sleep in small bits. Follow your own instinctual rhythm. Let your own connection and inspiration be what guides your sleep patterns. If you can, don’t use sleep aides as it thwarts your ability to sleep naturally. If you can’t sleep, then get up. If you don’t, you will introduce resistance,” was Abraham’s September 13, 2016 advise.
Abraham said, “When you have manifested, then more contrast comes. When you experience contrast and you say, ‘I want to be there and not where I am,’ then you’re not ready. Every negative emotion you feel is evidence of your free will. If you feel negative, then you block what positive could have come if you had thought positively.”
“Everything comes by the power of your thought! Instead, feel at ease. Be in the receiving mode. You are always going to be more. Be satisfied in your, “What-Is- Ness.” Be joyful in your now. Engage in the energy that creates Worlds! You are always turning thoughts to things.” September 9, 2016
On the 2016 Mediterranean Cruise, a writer asked, “What if I am writing about negative things? Does that hurt my alignment?” Abraham said, “ If you are focused on negative emotions, your guidance has gone too far. Have your awareness on negative things without losing your positive connection. Write about the negative without joining them where they are.”
Abraham says, “Speak about what you DO want. The Universe is responding to your vibration. Say positive things to yourself. You have control over your own vibration!”
“The children desire freedom! And every particle of their being from their Source says, ‘You are free. You are so free, that every thought you offer, the entire Universe jumps to respond to it.’ And so, to take that kind of knowledge and try to confine it in any way, defies the Laws of the Universe. You must allow your children to be free, because the entire Universe is set up to accommodate that. And anything you do to the contrary will only bring you regret. You cannot contain those that cannot be contained. It defies Law.”

“Esther looks for and isolates a sound in the room which helps her to detach from the physical. Use a sound such as an air-conditioner. In Esther’s relaxed willingness, her Inner Being tunes her into alignment. Nothing can go wrong in meditation. There is no danger but you may feel uncomfortable. Being in a receptive and intuitive mode is best. The way to accomplish alignment is to lower your resistance and allow your natural alignment. Your value is your alignment. You teach others through the clarity of your alignment. It is an example for others. Meditate for the joy of your own alignment.” Abraham on the September 2016 Mediterranean Cruise

“You must accept contrast. Your expansion is because of this resistance to contrast. Remember, you made the decision to come into your body and you jumped into contrast and loved it. You may have cried as a baby but you told yourself, ‘I’m going to deliberately choose contrast for the leading edge expansion that it brings!’
Your Inner Being doesn’t join you in the trauma of contrast. Love and negative emotions can co-exist. Take contrast in smaller doses if you need to.”
Abraham on the September 13, 2016 Mediterranean Cruise
Abraham stressed, “Don’t feel a grudge and keep it going! Doing that causes the slow, gradual out of alignment movement that leads to depression. Don’t focus on what bothers you!”
