“Use whatever excuse you can to vibrate in harmony with those things you’ve been saying you want.
And when you do, those things that are a vibrational equivalent flow into your experience in abundance.
Not because you deserve it, not because you’ve earned it, but because it’s the natural consequence of the Law of Attraction. That which is like unto itself is drawn.” – Abraham
Questioner: I have a question. It’s pertaining in the book: Ask and it is Given the 17 second flashpoint or thought?
Abraham: Why do you want to know about that?
Q: Well, I’ve been involved in meditation and things and it sounds simple to have an uninterrupted thought for 68 seconds or whatever involving…
A: Here’s the thing. We like your question in relationship to what we’ve been talking about – about forking.
We’re going to readdress the 17 seconds with a new way of looking at it in light of this forking your way into the vibrational corner of your choice.
What he’s talking about is when we say that when you hold a thought for 17 seconds – only 17 seconds another thought that is vibrationally the same joins that thought which makes that “Now” a more powerful, more attractive thought.
And when you hold that thought for 17 seconds then another (similar) thought is joined.
Until after 68 seconds – which is just a sequence of 17,17,17,17 – after 68 seconds if you are able to maintain a momentum, you’ll have true movement in your vibration.
So we’re talking about in terms of “forking” is I’m worried about money, I don’t have enough money, it’s not right that I don’t have enough money, this is all 68 seconds of maintaining thoughts – that in the same way the momentum will carry you in the direction that your are pointed. (Lack of money).
And so as you make an effort to fork in the direction of what you’re wanting and you hold that thought for as little as 17 seconds, then another thought equal or better will occur to you.
That’s our point.
And once you do that for 68 seconds now – let’s do that here relative to this forking technique, relative to something that’s important to you.
Q: It just seems like, you start out focusing and 10,000 other thoughts come in through before them that you know…
A: Well maybe they do, but here’s the thing.
Those 10,000 other thoughts are vibrationally compatible with the thought that you started with.
We don’t want you to hold a singular thought; we want you to hold a singular vibration.
In other words for example – let’s say you’re holding the thought of love.
I love my friends, I love my nieces, I love my dog, I love the world, I love the flower, I love life.
In other words when you get into that vibrational essence of love there could be endless subjects that you can apply it to or when you get in the subject of frustration or hate.
Wherever you are along this emotional scale there are endless thoughts/ subjects that hold the same vibrational equivalent.
We don’t want you to say, floor, floor, floor, blue floor, blue floor, blue floor, carpet fiber, carpet fiber, carpet fiber.
We’re talking about vibrational essence of something.
And we want you to be aware of what the thought is that you’re feeling and stay there for 17 seconds and hold the thought and then reach for another, and then reach for another.
And 4, 5, 6, or 7 times of forking deliberately in the direction of what feels good is enough to get the momentum going and not that you could say enough forking for now I’ve left myself in an entirely different place and I can begin to expect different vibrational response from the universe.
Q: I think you answered my question.
A: Let’s fork. (Aud laughing).
Q: It’s a continual process.
A: It’s continual and it’s now.
It’s not, “Oh I’ll wait until I get my journal and line it up later.”
It’s not, “oh I’ll wait until I get to my desk and open my computer and do it later.”
It’s not “oh I’ll wait until I’ve brushed my teeth and combed my hair and gone out into the kitchen and fixed my breakfast.”
It’s now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now.
Now is life and now is where you feel the vibrational relationship of the life that you’re living now.
And we want you to start feeling that life is about focus, and feeling is about focus, and life is about how I feel, and how I feel is about vibration, and vibration is about my point of attraction, and my point of attraction is about all of my manifestations, but all my manifestations aren’t about now.
How I feel is about now you see?
Good, so let’s fork.
Q: Okay – Money, I’ll start thinking about, it seems okay until I get to a specific amount or something or how’s it going to come, or when is it going to come..
A: It’s not even that vague or that off in the distance.
It’s about something that’s happening in this moment.
In other words you’re having visceral responses to what’s happening in a moment and this is the thing that we want you to all become aware of.
It’s not my overall financial situation that I’m thinking about in this moment, it’s what am I going to do right now.
It’s can I afford that?
Does that cost too much?
Do I want to buy this for someone that I love?
Esther awakened yesterday morning all excited because she said, “I dreamed about a magnificent car.”
And she said, “I saw it and I wanted it and I loved it and I knew I could afford it and I bought it and I drove it and I loved it.”
And Jerry said, “What kind of car was it?”
And Esther said, “I have no idea.” (Aud laughing).
It was a dream about seeing something and knowing it was possible, and loving everything about it and stepping into it.
It was about the next logical step.
It was about vibrational relationship.
It was about the gap being closed.
It was about the point of manifestation.
In every moment you are living your life and molding the way you feel about the subject at hand.
And life is dealing up the subjects.
In other words you’re in traffic; life has dealt up the subject.
And so as you’re in your “now” and you are thinking about those 17 second explosions and you are making an effort to lean in the direction of what you’re wanting.
Now you’re in control in every moment and 30 days of that “loose awareness” and that deliberate forking cleans your vibration up on so many subjects that people who are watching you would hardly recognize you as the same person in terms of what’s beginning to flow into your experience.
So, give us an example of your interaction with dollars and then give us some words that amplify that moment.
Q: I’ve done well enough for myself. I think my main concern is about helping out other people.
A: We think so too, but you brought it up for a reason.
Q: Yeah, it’s kind of like the old – take two steps forward one step back when I’m focusing on things it seems like I’ll…
A: But you see the reason that we’re sort of stubbornly holding you here is because you want to talk hypothetical and we want to talk in the moment moving up the vibrational scale.
So you just said it seems like I take one step forward and two steps backwards. Which way did you fork with that statement?
A: So now what do you want to say?
Q: Anything’s possible; there are people that have what I want now.
A: Better statement, keep going. In other words find the vibrational essence of that and hold it for 17 seconds that’s what you came to talk about here.
So you went the direction you didn’t want to go and now what vibrational essence are you wanting to get hold of and maintain?
Q: I’ve always had enough, more than enough actually to get by.
A: All things are possible, I’m getting a handle on this deliberate creation, while it is always ebb and flow and I’ve never have seen anyone make a direct beeline toward anything they’re always moving around it one way or another or over it or under it.
In other words every journey to every destination is flexible like that but I always consistently keep moving in the direction of what I’m wanting.
My life continues to improve – my life really does get better and better.
And while certainly there are things that I would like to improve – you might be forking the other way just a little bit with that – on the whole things are going very well for me.
And I ask this question not only because I’m eternally trying to improve the quality of my own life because we all always are.
And as a teacher there’s nothing better than teaching through the clarity of my example, but I really want to get this so that I can demonstrate it to others both visually and verbally.
I want people to begin to understand that we are the creator of our own reality and the way we feel is everything and life is supposed to be good and abundance is out there for all of us.
And it’s illogical that there would be some people that would have outrageous abundance and some people that would hardly have any abundance at all.
It must be a vibrational variance.
And so it’s fun to get a handle on it and I like watching it in my own life and I love how the universe will deliver to me exactly the vibrational equivalent to what I’m offering.
And I love playing this forking game because as I play this forking game I can feel more and more how I am “shoring up” my vibration.
And I can feel that here now as I’ve been deliberately forking that I’ve achieved a vibrational essence with a thought way more than 17 seconds way more than double that or triple that or quadruple that.
I must be way over the 68 second mark.
I’m sure that I’ve been way over the 68 second mark and it hasn’t been difficult as I got pointed in the right direction because the more I got headed in the right direction the easier it was to go in the right direction.
This sort of momentum going I’m starting to feel freakin… (Aud laughing).
There isn’t anything that I can’t do. I feel that I could accomplish anything right now.
It feels to me right now the entire Universe is cued up to give me anything I want on any subject.
Money has never been a problem for me – it never will be a problem to me – it’s just a matter of identifying what I want!
