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!

The Most Perfect Prayer

Title Quote: Gotthold Ephraim Lessing

Prayers are said the world over
In a variety of different ways
Many pleading for assistance
To ease their saddened days

Most are taught as little children
Prayers to say before they sleep
Generations passing down words
Children’s Souls, they aim to keep

For some, prayers are repeated
Words they learned ‘off by heart’
Repetition brings them soothing relief
Releasing thought right from the start

Even those who do not believe
In the existence of a Greater Power
Will ‘pray’ in their own way to receive
Throughout life, a Blessings Shower

Whatever you’re version of prayer
I respect your truth and your way
I, like all, have my own beliefs
I follow my own path, wherever it lay

In deepest truth there is no right or wrong
The intention of the prayer is the key
Our beliefs throughout life are just perfect
In each moment, for who we came to be

Prayers are uttered to many ‘Gods’
Time and religion changes the name
But in Essence, they are all One
And we too, are of the same

One single grateful thought raised
To Heaven is the most perfect prayer
Feeling the prayer is already answered
Will manifest blessings everywhere

Like many I believe that Gratitude
Appreciating all my Blessings each day
Is the ultimate communication of prayer
Thankfulness felt in every word I say

I Commune with the Forces-Of-Creation
The All-That-Is, Source-Energy of Love
I surrender my Heart and Soul to the flow
And unite my own Light with God above

Trina Graves – 25th September 2017


About This Poem

Although I used the quote from Gotthold Ephraim Lessing (1729 – 1781)  

One Single Grateful Thought Raised To Heaven Is The Most Perfect Prayer.’

for the title of this poem, I also wanted to incorporate a quote from Gregg Braden (1954) I heard years ago watching one of his videos, that really stuck with me. 

‘Feel The Feeling As Though The Prayer Has Already Been Answered,
And In That Feeling We Are Speaking To The Forces Of Creation,
Allowing The World To Respond To Us.’

Human Beings Can Alter Their Lives

Title Quote: William James
Human Beings Can Alter Their Lives By Altering Their Attitude Of Mind

If there is anything in your life
That you would like to change
What is going on in your mind
Is what you need to re-arrange

For it is the thoughts you think
That always creates your reality
Bound with powerful emotions
You attract everything you see

Continued thoughts become beliefs
The attraction will speed up fast
What you believe is true for you
Will manifest as if a spell is cast

Your thoughts, beliefs and emotions
Consistently shape the life you live
So there’s an aspect to consider
Are they positive or negative?

To work out which is the one
Isn’t always simple to decide
So does it feel good to you?
Your emotions are your guide

Everyone has negative thoughts
But the key is not to linger there
Use them as helpful stepping stones
Along your path to become Aware

By focusing on your thoughts
And realising some are negative
Lets you know what you don’t want
So you can find a better alternative

To change those negative thoughts
When faced with trouble and pain
Find a thought that feels a little better
It’s an easy way to relieve the strain

If you can continue to always look
For the thought that feels better to you
Your vibration will incessantly rise higher
Lifting you up and getting you through

Keeping positive as much as possible
Helps you to feel good every day
You then radiate your beneficial energy
To everyone, in what you do and say

You’ll attract all the good things in life
Love, beauty, wisdom and happiness
Appreciating simple wonders each day
You will feel so Heavenly Blessed

Your thoughts, beliefs and emotions
Are the devices with which you create
And to bring an abundance of the joys
You need to give thanks and appreciate

Whatever you experience in this life
Your attitude is one of these aspects
Positive or negative, train of thought
From your mind, your world reflects

About This Poem

Along with William James (1842 – 1910) other well-known people throughout history have been consistently teaching us how our lives are shaped by our thoughts and attitude… 

All that we are is a result of what we have thought.
The mind is everything.
What we think we become.
Buddha
624BC – 543BC

People get disturbed not so much by events,
but by the view they take of them.
Epictetus
55 – 135

Our life is what our thoughts make it.
Marcus Aurelius
121 – 180

Whether the events in our life are good or bad,
greatly depends on the way we perceive them.
Michel de Montaigne
1475 – 1564

The mind is its own place,
and in itself can make a Heaven of hell,
a hell of Heaven.
John Milton
1608 – 1674

Nothing can stop a man
with the right mental attitude
from achieving his goal.
Thomas Jefferson
1743 – 1826

Whether you think you can
or think you can’t..
you are right!
Henry Ford
1863 – 1947

Attitude is a little thing
that makes a big difference.
Winston Churchill
1874 – 1965

Outer changes always begin with
an inner change of attitude.
Albert Einstein
1879 – 1955

Change the way you look at things
and the things you look at change.
Wayne Dyer
1940 – 2015

Most of us know it’s better to think positively than negatively, (although some people believe if they think negative they won’t be disappointed when the positive outcome doesn’t happen!) but, knowing you should be positive and doing so when faced with a negative thought or situation is something many do not know how to achieve. So this is something I wanted to convey in this poem.

Always seeking for a better feeling thought was something I learned from following the teachings of Abraham-Hicks. For me, Abraham speaking through Esther Hicks have been the greatest teachers of living a life of love, peace and joy.
