Just got this inspiring piece of advice (from Abraham-Hicks) in my inbox that I’d like to share with you:

Overwhelment is about you not being up to speed with what you told the Universe that you want. The Universe is yielding to you. You’re just not ready to receive it right now.

— Abraham

Interesting, eh? Haven’t thought of it that way!

    Hi Marcus,

    Everyone has a place in their lives, whether through their own choices or driven by others to make a choice, where at that time, we are not prepared to receive.

    When we become ready to be receptors to new ideas, new thoughts, or throwing off the old and starting new again is when we have determined that a constant state of consternation and anxiety will not produce the desired results.

    It’s not that we are able to receive these as a gift from some unknown source. It’s that we have changed on the inside and are silently moving from the previous state to a new awareness that things change when we initiate the change.

    Self improvement doesn’t happen when people say we need to change. Change happens when WE believe things need to change.

    Thanks, just needed to say that.

    You know if people would think this way would the world be in a national crisis like it is now.

    I haven’t thought of this thought neither. Mike is talking about change, well for me change should start within ourselves. Nice quote you got there. Now I have something to reflect on with.

    So the universe is always yielding, but we’re just not receptive to it? Perhaps. But the question that stumps me is this —> what am I supposed to be receptive too? I have no idea of this…and I think I’m confused and frustrated and inquisitive and always thinking, because I have no idea. Maybe I never will. Actually, there’s so much to unpack with Abraham’s statement, that where do you really start?

    Nice post.

    Be careful of what you wish for, you just might get it, eh? I can attest to that. There are so many things people want all at the same time that they are crippled by it when they have the world in their hands.

  7. Michael says:

    Food for thought. Thanks for the post.

  8. To me, it would be about just as useful a thing being said my cat is yielding to me, but I’m just not ready to receive it right now.

    My favorite quote (along these same lines) – “I may not have gone where I intended to go, But I think I ended up where I needed to be”.

    Thanks for sharing your quote.

    My favorite and 100% true.

    “We are continually faced by great opportunities brilliantly disguised as insoluble problems”

    I love inspirational quotes and I’m surprised to have never heard this specific one.

    Thanks for sharing :)

    Overwhelment? I found out that in facebook.. This is make more plans and be more deliberate and specific about the plans that you are making, and in all that you do, let your dominant intent be to find that which pleasures you as you imagine it.

    This very true, evreything happens for a reason in life. You have to fight and think at yout dream. Some day it may happen.
