Rise Above The Fear

Fear always stalks
Seeking to find a way
To take hold and enter
Our psyche every day

Doubts and insecurities
Riddle in our mind
Clogging up our energy
Then negativity we find

Blinkered in our sight
Seeming darkness all around
It’s easy to sink deeper
Unless a Light is found

Fear is so contagious
It spreads so easily
When fed by the media
It explodes exponentially

Without Light it festers
Causing endless stress
Our bodies are affected
The immune system works less

Hindered by the adrenaline
Stress will continually produce
Body processes are limited
Until the stress we reduce

Feeding the fear often
In a myriad of ways
Speaking, listening, writing
In our actions it replays

Panic may set in
Causing selfish acts
Too focused on the fear
To clearly see the facts

**********************

Rise Above The Fear
Don’t let it find a way
To take hold and enter
Your psyche any day

Rise Above The Fear
With compassion on your mind
Flowing through your energy
Positivity you’ll always find

Rise Above The Fear
For Light is all around
It’s easy to raise higher
When the Light you’ve found

Rise Above The Fear
Spread your Love easily
Feeding your social media
Love heals exponentially

Rise Above The Fear
Eliminate any stress
A stronger immune system
Will make you worry less

Rise Above The Fear
Harmony you’ll produce
In body, mind and Spirit
Negativity will reduce

Rise Above The Fear
In a myriad of ways
Speaking, listening, writing
In your actions it replays

Compassion will set in
Causing Loving acts
Always focused on the joy
You can clearly see the facts

About This Poem

Obviously this poem was written because of the fear that is spreading (faster than the virus) around our world.

I wanted to write something about the damage being done by the fear that has taken hold worldwide, however I always try to keep my poems focused on the positive, but I knew when I sat to write that I would have to start with the negativity.
I must admit I started to get a bit concerned when verse after verse was flowing with the negative aspects, but then once I began on the positive I knew each verse would have the first line of: ‘Rise Above The Fear’ (I’d been given the title after praying/asking for guidance). Then I realised each verse would balance the previous negative ones. And of course, the Light is more powerful than the dark.

I would have preferred the layout to be as in the picture below (side by side) but I was unable to do this.

With my last post Nothing Is Permanent Except Change I included most of a recent post from scientist Bruce Lipton about the greater damage fear is causing, and here I will add a post from Abraham-Hicks posted yesterday…

“Abraham wants you to know…

The bad news is – what humans see as ‘what is,’  is extremely out of balance.

The good news  is, this tremendous asking from humans around the planet has created an equivalent vibrational wave of solutions.

When you also remember that your Inner Beings, and all that is Source Energy, are focused on solutions, and when you remember that the vibrational version of solutions is available to anyone who aligns and taps in, then you are able to understand that all around your planet, people who are focused upon solutions and are therefore vibrationally aligned to solutions – (doctors, scientists, inventors, producers, creators) – these people are ready to be ready to receive viable ideas, which already have enormous Nonphysical momentum.

You have only one thing to consider in your now moment, and the next, and the next… ‘Am I, with this thought, adding momentum to the solution or the problem?’

We want you to remember that the most important solution you are seeking, is the relief of your fear, which will in time transform into Energy flowing through you that will enliven you, and refresh you, and restore you to more than you have ever been before.

There is great love here for you, and absolute certainty that solutions are flowing, and you are okay”. – Abraham-Hicks

Rise Above The Fear by Trina Graves

 

Update: 15th April 2020

Right now keeping positive, as much as possible, is a priority for everyone. Being stressed suppresses the immune system, and with the revelations that are now coming forth it will be very easy to caught up in the high drama of it all. With this in mind, I have compiled a page of links to my poems that are relevant at this time:

About the pandemic
Affirmations to keep focused on God within
LightWorker poems
Wisdom for 2020
Sympathy poems for comfort 

There is also a slideshow of some of the poems with quotes from others too. The page is called ‘2020: Apex Of Duality’

Allowing Well-Being

Based on quote from Abraham-Hicks: ‘When your heart is singing, you are allowing Well-Being. When you are appreciating, you are allowing Well-Being.’

What makes your Heart sing?
What do you Love to do?
What gives you simple pleasure?
Do you have a clue?

It’s important to make some time
Each and every day
To follow your own joy
In your own unique way

Even for just five minutes
If that’s all you can spare
With a busy hectic life
You especially need self-care

It doesn’t matter what it is
As long as you feel great
Let go of time and stress
Everything else can wait

Let everyone around you
See and know you do it
They will learn from you
As your Light will be lit

In these moments of joy
You are allowing Well-Being
Even just a little everyday
To your Spirit is freeing

*****

What do you appreciate?
What are you thankful for?
Do you notice the simple blessings
Constantly flowing ever more?

Everywhere you take a look
No matter which way you turn
Appreciate something around you
Even if you have to discern

Focus on the simple things
Water, shelter, sleep
Giving thanks, not taking for granted
Will bring benefits you’ll reap

Appreciate the people around you
For the little things they may do
Saying ‘Thank You’ often
Makes a kinder you

Appreciate Mother Nature
Give thanks for your family
With gratitude Bless them all
You’ll Light-up for all to see

In your appreciation
You are allowing Well-Being
Even just a little everyday
To your Spirit is freeing

*****

Allowing Well-Being
Let’s everything flow
All falls into place
Wherever you go

Allowing Well-Being
Sets you on your Path
Life becomes full of joy
You’ll always have a laugh

Allowing Well-Being
Guides you on your way
Positive thoughts align
To flow in what you say

Allowing Well-Being
Puts you in the best place
To help other people
Encouraging the human race

Allowing Well-Being
Impacts your every cell
Energy positively charged
The simple way to be well

Allowing Well-Being
Makes you glow so bright
On the inside and out
You’ll radiate your Light

About This Poem

Listening to and reading the teachings of Abraham, spoken through Esther Hicks, certainly changed my whole outlook on life.  Ever since I was first drawn to pick up their book ‘Ask And It Is Given’ in 2006, I have always had an inner-knowing that the words were of truth, love and light. So their quotes are an obvious choice for me to write poems about!

Abraham teaches that ‘Well-Being’ is our natural state and the only reason for us not to be feeling it is if we are blocking it in some way. 

By getting into the habit of spending time doing things you love, you not only have fun but you are allowing the goodness to flow. Bringing appreciation, thankfulness and gratitude into our daily lives not only allows more things to appreciate into our lives but it also strengthens the flow!

There is a link page for my other Abraham-Hicks Quote Poems, if you would like to read some more.

Get Into The Vortex… And Then

Title Quote: Abraham-Hicks

Get into the Vortex… and then start the day
In the Vortex you’ll have fun and play

Get into the Vortex… and then eat that food
In the Vortex you’ll be in a good mood

Get into the Vortex… and then exercise
In the Vortex your achievements will rise

Get into the Vortex… and then talk to your friend
In the Vortex pure love you will send

Get into the Vortex… and then write that letter
In the Vortex your frame of mind is better

Get into the Vortex… and then clear that mess
In the Vortex you’ll make fuss less

Get into the Vortex… and then read a book
In the Vortex with an open mind you will look

Get into the Vortex… and then make that call
In the Vortex you will not stall

Get into the Vortex… and then take that test
In the Vortex you’re at your best

Get into the Vortex… and then ask for that date
In the Vortex enthusiasm you’ll radiate

Get into the Vortex… and then do your speech
In the Vortex your inner guidance you’ll reach

Get into the Vortex… and then share a meal
In the Vortex appreciation you will feel

Get into the Vortex… and then meditate
In the Vortex to your Soul you’ll relate

Get into the Vortex… and then say a prayer
In the Vortex your Source is there

About This Poem

I haven’t added an older poem for quite awhile, this one stood out to me from those left.

If you have never listened to, or read, anything from Abraham-Hicks then the idea of getting into a Vortex might seem a little strange! But, basically it’s all about getting yourself into: the right frame of mind, a positive vibe, feeling good, looking on the bright side etc… and by doing this before you do anything else, everything will then flow for your (and everyone else’s) highest good.

I have a link page of Abraham-Hicks quote poems if you would like to read more.

The Timing Of Your Death Is Always Chosen By You

Title Quote: Abraham-Hicks

We are all born into this life
Not knowing how long it will be
But would we truly desire to know
If granted the length to see?

Before we came we made a choice
Of when our life would end
Fitting in with our Spiritual Path
United with family and friend

Together we made a pact
To challenge, grow, inspire
Aiming to expand our Souls
Each lifetime raising Higher

Oneness in eternal growth
Love and Light our essence, core
Agreeing to help each other
Before we enter through Earth’s door

Being in truth complete Love and Light
We have to bury it very deep
If we want to allow another Soul
To flow the Love they keep

In a world of light and dark
Contract enables choice
Freewill is given to all
Will we heed our Spirit voice?

It’s easy for us to understand
Someone giving in, letting go
When faced with pain and disease
Releasing to the eternal flow

It’s hard to let them go
But we know they couldn’t stay
So with love and heavy heart
We bless them on their way

But someone who suddenly dies
From unknown illness or injury
Comes as a great shock
Causing us pain and misery

If it’s from another’s hands
The negativity can gain hold
It takes great strength to perceive
The Higher Truth to unfold

There are no accidents
Most is as we once planned
Together we worked it out
In our Home, a beautiful land

Freewill means that some
From their path will maybe stray
Twists and turns of fate
Sends them down the wrong way

But guidance is always there
Especially when asleep at night
Adjustments made to bring about
The conclusions that are right

Even a baby never born
Into an actual physical life
Made the choice to ‘die’
Growth can flow from strife

The parents and the baby
Agreed to share the tale
Always united in Spirit
All-knowing beyond the veil

The passing of a child
Is the greatest tragedy
We should never take for granted
There presence here to be

Every life is precious
Every Soul Heaven sent
Now is the only time we have
To show pure love, our core intent

Trina Graves – 20th February 2019


About This Poem

I have followed the guidance from Abraham-Hicks for many years, so obviously they feature quite a lot in my Quote Poems

I had this quote on my Spiritual Quotes To Live By site, but it came more to my attention when someone contacted me to ask for more understanding of this particular quote. Both of this person’s parents had been recently murdered so it was very tragic. I did my best to explain my understanding of the quote and at that time thought it would be a good quote to use for a poem, so I added it to my list, knowing that one day I would be drawn to writing it.

quote from sympathy poem by Trina Graves - The Timing Of Your Death Is Always Chosen By You - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Channelling

Eileen Caddy, the first I admired
God’s words spoke to my heart
Clear guidance of Divine Love
Truth sang to me, at the start

Neale Donald Walsch, a catalyst
‘Conversations With God’ inspired me
I began to write some poems
To be, who I came here to be

Jane Roberts channelled Seth
Teaching: You create your own reality
One of the first to say this truth
To enlighten all of humanity

Esther Hicks worked with husband Jerry
As Abraham spoke, lifting me so high
Now Jerry works with Abraham
On the other side, no need for goodbye

Helen Schucman brought through Jesus
A Course In Miracles, the book
Many pages, some hard to read
But loving truth, whenever you look

Blossom Goodchild, continues on
Although knocked down in the past
Love from the Federation Of Light
Comes through, I too, remain steadfast

Darryl Anka, always a joy to watch
Bashar’s delight shining through
From the future, his words speak
So much wisdom on what to do

Amanda Ellis I recently found
With synchronicities powerfully strong
Archangel Metatron her main Guide
And to her ‘tribe’ I now belong
The Heart Squad are coming through
Diana, Michael, George, Freddie
‘Celebrities’ wanting to share
Love and Light to help us be ready

I have always been drawn to channelling
Since on my path I consciously started
Different people, sources and methods
All working with love and Light-hearted

I was told I would be used
As a channel, many years ago
I never sat in circle, or ‘developed’
So I had no evidence to show

My perception and understanding
Has steadily progressed through time
I now appreciate the irony
I’ve been doing it, with each new rhyme!

I’ve always known the words I receive
Are coming from somewhere higher
It just took me years to acknowledge
The true meaning of ‘Inspire’

Everything that exists in the Universe
Whether physical or invisible to see
Consists of one pure substance
Without exception, it’s all Energy

Our thoughts and those of others
Are Energy substances all around
Linked by the Law of Attraction
We drew to us, the ones we found

No matter the plane of existence
On Earth, in Spirit, or outer space
We are all united and connected
Through Source Energy we all trace

Our minds tune-in like a radio
Our intention and focus transmit
Universal Law makes a match
What we receive will always fit

We actually channel all the time
From distances far away and near
Whenever we feel inspiration
We’re connected, reception is clear

Our strongest portal of connection
Is to our own Spirit, Soul, Higher-Self
By following our own inspiration
We live the life of our truest wealth

About This Poem

This has been another ‘Divine Timing’ posting!
I had this post just about prepared to add last week (for my mid-week post) but on reading through this part I was not 100% happy with what I’d written, so I left it and by the weekend had prepared another poem to post.

However, for some unknown reason I still held back from adding that one yesterday and earlier today. So, as today is my youngest grandson’s 4th birthday I thought I would add the poem I wrote on the day of his birth. This morning I began to get that post ready to add. And still, things did not go to plan as I got side-tracked with other things that needed doing.

This evening I thought I really must now add the birthday one, but, just as I sat to write, an email arrived to inform me that Amanda Ellis had just uploaded a new video… on Channelling!

I watched it and now I know that this is the time to add my poem on Channelling! In Amanda’s video she talks a lot about the Heart Squad and why they are coming through now, so it fits perfectly with my poem.  Also – apart from giving lots of information on channelling – she mentions sitting in circle and this was relevant to part of my original writing…

       – My first understanding of channelling (many years ago) was that it was a spirit talking through a human and the first time I experienced this (at a Spiritualist Church) I wasn’t at all impressed or totally believe that it was real. So, when at church (another time) I was told that I would be used as a channel I did wonder how this would work. I was also told many times to ‘sit in circle’ (a way to develop your skills) but I was also told that I would be guided to the right one as it had to be of a high vibration. I was keen to do this, but the ‘right’ one never came along before I stopped my regular attendance due to my feeling that I needed to move on from this level of ‘spirituality.’ – 

I had wondered why I never did get to sit in circle and also why I eventually felt going to the church wasn’t progressing. Watching Amanda’s video today has helped me to understand that (with the deepest respect for all those who have done it) taking years to develop by sitting in circle is a way of the past. And I was being led to do my own thing – it just took me years to realize it!!!

You Cannot Be Separated From Source

Title Quote: Abraham-Hicks

You cannot be separated from Source
Because Source Energy is what you are
Don’t limit your perception to a God
Who is watching you from afar

You are a Powerful Energy Being
A part of Source, a spark of Light
So how can you ever be separate
You’ve just restricted your sight

Know that you are Source Energy
And be what you came here to be
The world is your creation, so manifest
Love and Beauty for all to see

Trina Graves – July 2012


About This Poem

This was one of the short poems written for my Abraham-Hicks page of quote poems on my other site.

For me, Abraham-Hicks are the greatest teachers of the Law of Attraction as they make it all so easy to understand, will discuss any subject and have fun along the way.

You Cannot Be Separated From Source - Inspirational poem by Trina Graves - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

What You Think About Activates A Vibration Within You

Title Quote: Abraham-Hicks

We experience our world through our senses
Sight, taste, sound, smell and touch
All these are vibrational messages
Our brains are able to translate so much

Our emotions and feelings make us human
And these are vibrational too
All emotions are an energy
That can guide us in what to do

Our thoughts give birth to our world
We become what we think most about
Are Love, Beauty and Joy on your mind
Or lack, judgement and doubt?

All our vibrational thoughts
Radiate out into the atmosphere
Clumping together like-minded ones
Come back to us in ways so clear

Or course, we are only human
Negativity so easily comes our way
But we need to begin to feel Love
In everything we think, do, and say

Love doesn’t come easily to mind
When faced with troubles and strife
So just reach for a thought that feels better
It’s the key to living a positive life

So if you are feeling bad sometimes
Just put yourself at ease
By thinking of something that feels good
And your vibration you will please

Trina Graves – July 2012


About This Poem

I enjoy writing poems about the Law Of Attraction as taught by Abraham-Hicks as it is their teachings that have changed my whole perception on everything in life.. and death.

Trina Graves quote from poem: What You Think About Activates A Vibration Within You - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

A Belief Is Only A Thought I Keep Thinking

Title Quote: Abraham-Hicks

Our lives are made up of many beliefs
We learn most when we are small
Most of us don’t even realize
How much they affect us all

So many beliefs are ingrained in us
We don’t even know they are there
Maybe hearing things often as a young child
Or sensing our parents despair

Although we don’t need to dwell on the past
Sometimes it can be helpful to find
Those negative beliefs that are holding us back
By being dominant in our sub-conscious mind

A belief is only a thought we keep thinking
So our beliefs are easy to change
We just change it to a positive thought
Which at first will feel a bit strange

By focusing on the positive thought
And repeating it often each day
Soon you will find your new belief is there
In what you do, and in what you say

For instance, one of the most common beliefs
That many of us have taken on
Is the ‘I’m not good enough’ syndrome
It’s a belief that is so strong

‘I am good enough just as I am right now’
This new belief will affect your life dramatically
By accepting yourself just as you are
The door opens to abundance, you will soon see

About This Poem

Another one of my early Abraham-Hicks quote poems. Although now I can see ways to improve this (and other) of my earlier poems, for now I am sharing them as I originally wrote them (unless I find obvious mistakes 🙂 ) but maybe someday I will update them a little… or a lot!

Trina Graves quote from poem: A Belief Is Only A Thought I Keep Thinking - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

You Are A Physical Extension Of Source Energy

Title Quote: Abraham-Hicks

Your body is not the real you
You are so much more than what you can see
For the real truth is quite simply
You are a physical extension of Source Energy

Source Energy is what some call God
It doesn’t really matter what name you use
It is limiting to believe that you are any less
But you always have free-will to choose

Each and every Soul upon this Earth
Contains the Spark of Source within
With some it can be buried so deep
Negativity can lead to a life of sin

With others their Light can shine so bright
They are a beacon that shows many the way
But Source loves us all, the good and the bad
Knowing we will all become the Light one day

Trina Graves – 22nd July 2012


About This Poem

I follow the teachings of Abraham-Hicks as for me they resonate the highest truth. On my Spiritual Quotes To Live By website I have many pages of Abraham-Hicks quotes on various topics, so I was definitely drawn to using some of these quotes for poem titles and themes.

Reach For A Thought That Feels Better

Title Quote: Abraham-Hicks

If you’re needing help in any way
To keep yourself positive
Reach for a thought that feels better
Is the best advice anyone can give

No matter how you are feeling
Whether angry, depressed or lost
Reaching for a better thought
Brings relief at no great cost

Even if from depressed to angry
Is the step you need to take
As long as you don’t stay in anger too long
You’ll feel better with each step you make

Always reaching for a better thought
Is a wonderful habit to pursue
You will raise your vibration incrementally
And create a blissful, beautiful you

Trina Graves – 12th May 2011


About This Poem

Years ago I quite often felt upset about so many things, my tears of sadness could easily flow, especially if I was alone and dwelling on negative things. But when I began to understand and use the teachings from Abraham-Hicks I noticed that I was feeling much happier about everything. I didn’t really appreciate how different I felt until I suddenly realized that I hadn’t really cried at all for many years, just the odd tear drop from joy or compassion for others. This quote has been one of the most helpful in changing my whole attitude and perspective on life. 

Nowadays I rarely have to think about ‘Reaching For A Thought That Feels Better‘ as I now naturally don’t dwell on anything I find negative, but a couple of days ago I did have the old experience of feeling sad and helpless. It came out of the blue and because this hadn’t happened in many years I began to think about it more, and then I felt myself sinking and getting sadder, I knew I shouldn’t dwell so I tried not to think about it, but of course that didn’t work! Then I remembered this quote and changed my thoughts to something a little better and put on some uplifting music. This helped a lot but I still didn’t feel my usual self, so I then took my mind totally away from thinking by watching a comedy and by the time it was finished I felt so much better. After that there was no negativity when I thought about the whole aspect of that experience. I now see this as a positive reinforcement of my power to change how I feel.

Although, writing this now another interesting thing has come to my mind…
I now have a much smaller list of my old poems to add to this blog and (unless I’ve written something new) with what I have left I’m finding it not so easy to complete the ‘About This Poem’ part of each post. So, today when I looked through which poem to add (I had nothing new) this one really jumped out at me with the significance of my recent experience!

So, I now have to ask myself, did I (my Higher-Self) create this flash-back to bring myself this clarity? And ultimately words for this post!!!

Death Is Not A Bad Thing… But A Joyous Thing

Title Quote: Abraham-Hicks

Why is it we all grieve
When someone passes on?
We’re just not connected to our truth
When we believe that they are gone

We’re taught as we grow up
That physicality is all we are
Limiting our perceptions
Blocking assistance from afar

In truth we are all Spirits
Whether here. or on another plane
On Earth we live our lives
For the experiences we gain

Over there time is not measured
There are no limits to believe
We are One, always together
There is no reason to grieve

Just because we cannot see them
Doesn’t mean they are not there
Our thoughts of love bind us together
All the treasured memories we share

Death is not a bad thing
We all make the transition home one day
But a joyous thing when we discover
Heaven is not so far away

Trina Graves – 16th November 2016


About This Poem

None of us want our loved ones to die and the majority of us grow up with a dread of this event happening to ourselves or anyone we know. However, all of this worry and heartache is only caused by our perception of death.

If we could only perceive and live as our true selves: Spiritual Beings Of Love & Light, Here To Experience Life, with no limits of self-doubt, separation and time, we would fully appreciate the death experience as we move ever onward on our Divinely Joyous journey. 

Abraham-Hicks also teach that we all choose the time of our death, whether this is at a grand-old age of 100 plus, an adult, child, baby or even stillborn. There are many reasons for the chosen length of time we might be physically in this world for this present life, and one day we will know the answers.

Death Is Not A Bad Thing - sympathy poem by Trina Graves of Spiritual Quotes To Live By

The Eyes Of Source

Title Quote: Abraham-Hicks

Nature is so awesome
Its beauty is beyond compare
It’s everything natural around us
Always willing of itself to share

From a tiny little seed
A mighty tree can grow
From such small beginnings
Strength and beauty it can show

With Love and Appreciation in your heart
Just take a look around you and see
The abundance of natures forms
Its silent miracle is the key

Open your heart, and open your eyes
To the wonders all around
Nature’s always there, waiting patiently
Until the Eyes Of Source you have found

Beauty and perfection can be seen
In the smallest, simplest flower
Just living, growing, adapting, changing, being
Its message can bring such power

Love is what you really are
It’s the truest abundance of wealth
Looking at the world through The Eyes Of Source
You are being your true self

Trina Graves – July 2012


About This Poem

Looking ‘Through The Eyes Of Source’ is one of my favourite quotes from Abraham-Hicks as it gives an easy reminder of the ultimate perception of everything we see. 

As you can see, I wrote this poem in 2012, but years later when I was going through my poems to add them to my website (Spiritual Quotes To Live By) I decided not to use this one but instead to write another using the same quote.  At that time I had recently gone for a walk locally and been so awestruck with the simple beauty surrounding me and one tree in particular had literally brought tears to my eyes! so writing the newer version was easy to do: Through The Eyes Of Source is one of my favourites of my poems as for me it brings back the memory of that walk. 

Although this poem was originally called Through The Eyes Of Source, I have edited the title to differentiate between the two poems.

The Eyes Of Source (2012) - inspirational poem by Trina Graves of Spiritual Quotes To Live By

You Are The Creator Of Your Own Life Experience

Title Quote: Abraham-Hicks

The Law of Attraction is becoming well known
We are all searching for the way
To bring more Joy and Love to our lives
To appreciate each and every day

You are the creator of your own life experience
Can be difficult at first to take on
“How can that be true for me?” Most would say
“I wouldn’t create everything in my life that’s gone wrong”

But the Law of Attraction is a powerful force
Which we apply just by our thought
It knows no difference, yes or no are the same
So everything to your life you have brought

Always remember a positive thought
Is more stronger than a negative one
And keep on reaching for better thoughts
This ‘work’ is on-going, it’s never done

It doesn’t matter what’s happened in your past
All that matters is this moment right now
By accepting yourself where you are
You can go on to create a life that will – Wow

To create the beautiful life of your dreams
Just focus on following your bliss
If you let go, and are open to let it all flow
‘Coincidental’ opportunities you will not miss

Each day bring your focus on all
The Love, Joy and Beauty around
Live each moment with Inner-Peace
And Heaven on Earth you will have found

Trina Graves – 12th May 2011


About This Poem

I have learned and come to understand how the Law Of Attraction works mostly through the teachings of Abraham-Hicks, which is why I am drawn to using their quotes as titles and themes of my poems. This quote is one that that many find hard to get their head around when first hearing of the Law Of Attraction, and needs full understanding to implement into everyday life. 

By giving attention to anything you don’t like, or want, in your life, you are actually going to bring yourself more of the same! Of course, it’s impossible to never think of, or see anything you don’t like, but by being aware of your thoughts and feelings about things, enables you to choose whether to continue with the thought or change it to something that feels better. In fact, knowing what you don’t want, is kind of essential to knowing what you do want, just don’t spend too much time on the negative!

Through The Eyes Of Source

Title Quote: Abraham-Hicks

My physical eyes have limited sight
Filters of thought and belief blur my view
But if I look Through The Eyes Of Source
I will see everything clearly, and true

To look through with the Eyes Of Source
I first need to change and Lighten my mind
I let go of any not-good feeling thoughts
And think ones that feel better and kind

I talk to myself about things that are good
And things that I really appreciate
Then as I feel that upliftment in me
Through The Eyes Of Source, I will vibrate

Looking Through The Eyes Of Source
It is easy to appreciate and expand
By noticing all the beauty there is
Wherever my enchanted gaze may land

Walking outside with Mother Nature
Using the Eyes Of Source as my looking glass
My vision sometimes gets blurred with tears
At the intense magnificence of everything I pass

With the colours, shapes, size and variety
Of the infinite abundance of nature’s forms
From the majestic tall trees, to a daisy in the grass
Looking Through The Eyes Of Source, my heart warms

In every face there is a simple beauty
The Eyes Of Source will always see
Wrinkled, scarred – it matters not
Even looking in a mirror at me

The intoxication I feel has seeped into my life
I am now selective on where my focus will be
I’ve lost interest in looking with my dull ‘human’ eyes
As Through The Eyes Of Source I now choose to see

About This Poem

In 2012 I used this quote for a poem, but when a few years later I decided to compile a page on my website (Spiritual Quotes To Live By) of Abraham-Hicks quote poems, I was not entirely happy with it, so I decided to write another. I particularly wanted to include this quote as it is an easy reminder for following the Law Of Attraction. I wanted to convey how our thoughts and beliefs affect what we see and also give some guidance on using the Law Of Attraction. 

I must admit, I was blind to the magnificence of nature before 2010, the only time I looked through the eyes of Source was when looking at babies and children (especially my own.) It was the teachings of Abraham-Hicks that made me begin my website (doing something I loved to do) which then led me on to taking nature photos for quotes. I remember well the first walk I went on with my new eyes! Before it would have been my grandchildren in all the photographs, but I was awestruck with the simplest of things. It was on that day I took the photograph of a dandelion seed-head that I use as my logo. I had never really looked closely at one before and was amazed at the sheer perfection! 

This poem is now one of my favourites.

You Only Hear What You Are Ready To Hear

Title quote: Abraham-Hicks

Even though we are all one
We’re also individuals too
Which means we are each unique
Looking at life with our perceptional view

It seems our lives are moulded
In so many different ways
But the truth is we are the source of it all
With our own thoughts we create our days

You only hear what you are ready to hear
Many people are not open to see
Whatever is going on in their lives
They created their own reality

But all is not lost by such words
The seed is planted and you will find
One day in the future, something will ‘click’
And the truth will blossom in their mind

About This Poem

This quote has been a much learned teaching in my life, for example…

In 2006 I was looking for a book to take on holiday and rather than a novel I was drawn to a book called  ‘Ask And It Is Given’ by Esther & Jerry Hicks, it was one of those times that I knew I had to buy THIS book and not any other. I read most of it on holiday and thought it was interesting, but I obviously wasn’t quite ‘ready to hear.’

I had been learning of the Law Of Attraction through various others, most especially Neale Donald Walsch and Eileen Caddy, but it was to be Abraham-Hicks that really set me on my path to changing my perceptions and attitude.

At some point between 2006 and 2009 I had discussed this Law Of Attraction and the idea that you create your own life with a very close (spiritually-aware) friend, although she didn’t tell me till years later, she was very upset that I would tell her she had created the problems in her life (I obviously never explained it very well!) I had also mentioned to her about the film ‘The Secret.’ 

On a visit to me in 2010 she was very enthusiastic about a film another friend had told her about, she told me I really must watch it, and went on to tell me that she now understood what I had tried to tell her a long time before, but at that time she found deeply upsetting. The film was called.. The Secret!

But what makes it all the more interesting, to me, is that this was a catalyst bringing me back with greater awareness and eagerness to explore and learn all I could about the teachings of Abraham.

Since I began to fully understand and implement their teachings my perceptions and attitude towards everything in life (and death) have changed for the better. I am now living each day in joy, happy with where I am in each moment, and eagerly allowing life to bring me more evidence of joy.

Although Spirituality and the Law Of Attraction are, for me now, an essential part of my life, I rarely talk to my family, friends etc.. about them. I now know that the best thing I can do is to live my life to be an example for them. Of course, if they show an interest or ask questions I will share. One of the reasons I love to write my poems, do my Spiritual Quotes To Live By website and share my inspirational photo-quotes is that I know I am providing the knowledge for when they (or anyone else who is drawn to it) are ready to hear what I have to say!
