I like this book and have been returning to it over the years. It's one I keep and revisit as the concepts take time to be fully grasped or integrated. If you can put aside (if you have a problem with it), the idea that all of the information is channeled to Esther Hicks by an "entity" named Abraham there is much to learn. It doesn't matter if you think that's weird or even if you think it's "wrong" somehow. Put judgement aside and see what is applicable here for your life.
If you are constantly worried about bad things happening, or negative outcomes, then you are using the law of attraction against yourself. To worry is really to apply most of the above steps, towards a negative outcome. You are visualizing the negative outcome and asking the universe for it with pictures of the negative outcome; you are feeling the feelings of the negative outcome. Stop worrying and follow step seven above.
Freud said that the manifest content of the dream depicts the true desires of the dreamer, which was revealed in the latent content. In the 'naked in public' dream above, he might have said that dreaming about being naked in public represents a wish to be free of societal constraints and/or a desire to be an exhibitionist. To Freud, the latent content of dreams was much more important than the manifest content.
Attachment is a representation of fear while detachment is an image of trust. When we attach ourselves to something, we are fearful of letting it go. We fear we might not be able to find something that brings us as much joy and pleasure as it has done for us. Detachment means that we trust in the universe that we will be able to manifest what it is we need and do not need to be attached to a single item or thing. When you trust in the universe, you have a very high vibration level, and you won’t worry about things working out; you know they will because you believe in the universe altogether.
One of the most important elements of using visualization tools is to find the methods that best maintain constant focus on your objectives. Some people find different forms of visualization more powerful than others, so we’ll help you find the visualization styles that infuse you with the most intense sense of confidence and optimism. In addition, you’ll learn how to combine your new visualization tools with more positive ways of interacting with others, helping you to live and behave like you have already accomplished your goals.
It’s not enough just to say your affirmations or create a vision board and hope for the best. The universe speaks the language of emotions. So even if you are affirming “I am rich and successful,” you have to feel it for it to make a difference. To call in an experience you actually want to have, start to cultivate the emotion of the experience as if it were already real, already happening.
Step 1 is important because it prepares your mind and body to receive whatever you’re asking for. Our brains don’t know the difference between reality and imagination. When you engage in full, sensory imagination, your brain fires up your body to move forward. Muscles, blood flow, heart, lungs and every part of your body gear up to take part in whatever you’re imagining.
How To Know The Law Of Attraction Is Working
Since the brain is Velcro for negative experiences, it is natural that we worry so much. It's just the brain's tendency. Keep a worry list for 2 weeks. The minute you start to worry write it down. This not only helps release the heavy energy that often keeps us stuck, but at the end of 2 weeks you will notice none of the worries were warranted. Your brain will have proof that worry is a waste of energy.
Ask the Universe for it. Make your request. Send a picture of what you want to the Universe. The Universe will answer. See this thing as already yours. See How to Visualize. The more detailed your vision, the better. If you're wanting that Nintendo Wii, see yourself sitting down playing a game on it. See yourself feeling the controller, playing your favorite game(s), touching the console. If there's that person you have a crush on, see yourself walking with them, touching or caressing the person, or even kissing the person. You get the idea.
Excited about the clarity and practicality of the translated word from the Beings who call themselves Abraham, Esther and Jerry Hicks began disclosing their amazing Abraham experience to a handful of close business associates in 1986. Recognizing the practical results being received by themselves and by those people who were asking practical questions and then applying Abraham’s answers to their own situations, Esther and Jerry made a deliberate decision to allow the teachings of Abraham to become available to an ever-widening circle of seekers of how to live a happier life. Using their San Antonio, Texas, conference center as their base, Jerry and Esther have traveled to approximately 50 cities a year since 1989, presenting interactive Law of Attraction workshops to those leaders who gather to participate in this expanding stream of progressive thought. And although worldwide attention has been given to this philosophy of Well-Being by Leading Edge thinkers and teachers who have, in turn, incorporated many of Abraham’s Law of Attraction concepts into their best-selling books, scripts, lectures, and so forth, the primary spread of this material has been from person to person—as individuals begin to discover the value of this form of spiritual practicality in their personal life experiences. In November 2011, Jerry made his transition into Non-Physical, and now Esther continues to conduct the Abraham workshops with the help of her physical friends and co-workers and, of course, with the Non-Physical help of Abraham and Jerry. People are able to access Abraham directly by attending the seminars in person or by participating in the online live streaming of most events. There is also an extensive YouTube library of Abraham videos. Abraham—a group of uplifting Non-Physical teachers—present their Broader Perspective through Esther Hicks. And as they speak to our level of comprehension through a series of loving, allowing, brilliant, yet comprehensively simple essays in print and in sound, they guide us to a clear connection with our loving Inner Being, and to uplifting self-empowerment from our Total Self.

When it comes to our goals and dreams we all want to know how we can make those ideas or thoughts materialize in our lives. This art of bringing a thought form from an energetic state to the point of materializing in one’s present reality is called Manifestation. The Art of Manifestation is not new. The techniques used to manifest dreams into reality have been available to us since ancient times. The steps are actually quite simple and easy to apply, but don’t let the simplicity fool you. Just like working out to build a muscle, the process is simple but requires consistent practice, dedication and focus to attain the desired result. One must focus their attention on the right things to create the right results.
From the moment we’re born, every single one of us receives societal programming: parental, media, peer. Very few of us have a true idea of what our authentic essence is and what it truly desires to thrive. Manifesting starts with taking deep inventory of that programming we’re raised with, then getting into your authentic essence and asking yourself what you truly want—and, finally, breaking the mold of what limits you from achieving that.
