You may be happier if your home is taken from you

If you don’t know who Abraham are (Abraham is the name of a collective of entities channeled by Esther Hicks), and you are interested in learning more about the Law of Attraction and the Art of Allowing, I highly recommend you pick up a book or if movies are your thing, watch “The Secret”.

“If all of you, when you went home today, found your homes had blown away, you would be happier in the days and weeks and months to follow than if you went home and everything was normal — because it causes more focus of desire. There is all this fresh stuff pouring through you. It’s like opening spaces to new allowance. If every remnant of success was gone from you — still you stand as the culmination of all that you’ve learned. And we don’t mean learned in the sense that now you know how to do it again. We mean you have been the creation that has been in the process of being created, and here you stand as this clearer, more focused wanter and allower than you’ve ever been before. Which means, you can take your next breath of desire and step into your next place of allowing, and all that you ever had, and ten times more, can be in your experience immediately — when you accept that you are the asker and the receiver, and the letter-in of all of that.” Abraham

Excerpted from a workshop in North Los Angeles, CA on Monday, August 13th, 2001 – Jerry and Esther Hicks

During my reading of this Daily Quote from Abraham it struck me that the financial crisis many of us are facing personally, nationally and globally is a huge opportunity.

While at the Mission Bay playground with our daughters my friend Tanya and I were discussing the financial crisis, and she mentioned she wouldn’t feel touched by it if she weren’t personally affected and that she felt she needed to be a part of the crisis in order to learn and grow from it.

This resonated with me because I’ve been feeling myself for the past few months that our current dismal financial state of affairs is a blessing in disguise, for

  • It gives us a challenge to face and overcome together as a family.
  • It allows us the chance to be grateful for and appreciate what we do have.
  • It allows us to realize what is truly important in our lives – things like health, family and friends.
  • This crisis is an opportunity for growth, greater happiness and a chance to transform ourselves and our life for the better.

My husband and I just completed an online financial management course and during it a thought really struck me like a lightning bolt.

You can choose to fund your dreams (save money for your goals – college, retirement, a home of your own)…

… or you can choose to buy THINGS that will keep you
from achieving them.

I like that thought so much I am going to put it in my wallet to remind me to make the decision that is best for me and my situation, and not be influenced by our materialistic society.
