Sunday message by Rev. Pat Bessey based on the book E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality by Pam Grout
Oh man! This week’s talk only touched the tip of the iceberg for The Abracadabra Principle. The chapter in the book E-Squared on this principle was packed with great information. This premise of this principle is “whatever you focus on expands.” I am going to give you the opening story that I shared on Sunday as it sets up the experiment for this principle.
It comes from a book that was out many years ago and you probably have read it and then gave it away or to Goodwill. It is Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah by Richard Bach.
This is an excerpt from it…
To bring anything into your life imagine that it is already there.
Like what? Like my lovely lady…
Anything…not your lady. Something small at first.
I’m supposed to practice now?
Ok…a blue feather. He looked at me blankly…
Richard? A blue feather?
You said anything, not a lady something little.
He shrugged, Fine! A blue feather…imagine the feather. Visualize it, every line and edge of it, the tip, V-splits, where it is torn, fluff around the quill. Just for a minute. Then let it go.
I closed my eyes for a minute, and saw an image in my mind, five inches long, iridescent blue to silver at the edges. A bright clear feather there floating there in the dark.
Surround it in golden light, if you want. That’s a healing thing, to help make it real but it works in magnetizing, too.
I surrounded my feather in gold glow. Ok!
That’s it. You can open your eyes now.
I opened my eyes. Where’s my feather?
If you had it clear in your thought, it is even in this moment barreling down on you like a Mack truck.
My feather…Like a Mack truck?
All that afternoon I looked for the feather to appear, and it didn’t. It was evening, dinnertime over a hot turkey sandwich, that I saw it. A picture and small print on the carton of milk. Packaged for Scott Dairies by Blue Feather Farms, Byran, Ohio.
Don! My feather!
He looked and shrugged his shoulders. I thought you wanted the actual feather.
Well any feather for openers don’t you think.
Did you see the feather all alone or were you holding the feather in your hand?
That explains it. If you want to be with what you are magnetizing than you have to put yourself in the picture too. Sorry I didn’t say that.
A spooky strange feeling…it worked…I had consciously magnetized my first thing…today a feather I said and tomorrow the world.
The word abracadabra comes from Aramaic and means, “I create as I speak.” It is not magic; it is remembering that every thought counts as a prayer.
Every single thought affects the Field of Potentiality; thoughts are creative; every thought incites change.
Author Pam Grout writes: The only reason we don’t change water into wine or heal cancer with one touch is because our thoughts are scattered all over the place. Instead of being one, constant, well-aimed tuning fork, our thoughts are more like a junior high band of beginning trumpet players.”
Four Common Battlefields of opposing thoughts:
The rut – Ninety-eight percent of our thoughts are repeats from the day before. Out of 60,000 thoughts a day only about 1,000 of them are new. We have not thought before. This amazes me as I have a hard time believing I have that many…
The adman’s copy – The average American sees between 1,500 and 3,000 “commercials” a day. And the ads are negative, always pointing out something we are lacking, or instilling a new disease in our minds so that they can sell us the cure…
Other people’s heads – We unconsciously pick up the thoughts of our family, culture, etc. It is important to avoid hanging out with negative people… they will drain our energy.
Your own head – An underlying soundtrack of negative statements. Pam Grout shares how she sends herself postcards with positive thoughts for her to remember.
Experiment #4 Lab Sheet
The Abracadabra Principle: Whatever you focus on expands.
The Theory: Whatever you focus on expands.
The Question: Can I pull things out of thin air simply by thinking about them?
The Hypothesis: By making the following intention and focusing on its outcome, I can draw into my life:
Time Required: 48 hours
Today’s Date: Time:
Deadline for Manifesting:
The Approach: I have scanned over the big catalog called the world and, for the sake of this experiment, have decided that this is what I intend to manifest in the next 48 hours. I will focus on it with all my being. And I will remember what Abraham-Hicks likes to say: “It is as easy to manifest a castle as a button.”
Next week join me for Experiment #5 The Dear Abby Principle. I would love to hear the results from this week’s experiment as well.
You are a blessing in my life,
