How The LOA Helped Me Appreciate Myself
It was early 2017 when my boyfriend showed me a video of a woman speaking with a funny voice. Later I would come to know this woman as Esther Hicks. Her funny voice, I soon found out was Abraham, a non-physical energy that Esther channelled.
At first, I thought the entire thing was weird. I wanted nothing to do with it, well I thought I didn’t. I would soon find out that the Law of Attraction works in funny ways. Whether you know about it, believe in it or want it too.
“That which is like unto itself is drawn” — Abraham Hicks
Around mid-April of the same year, my boyfriend was on a business trip to Las Vegas. I was home in Sydney, bawling my eyes out. I was upset because I was jealous of a girl he knew. No, not one in Vegas, one in Sydney… Logical right? I know.
Now in most cases, if I’m upset, he is the first person I call. For this one though, I couldn't so I did what any rational young woman would do and called my Mum. When she finally calmed me down, I explained what was going on. To which she replied ... "Are you fucking serious?! You're being ridiculous! "
After a few more expletives, she instructed me to freshen up and then hung up the phone. While I knew she was right, there was still a part of me that was upset and uncertain. As I sat there trying to compose myself as if like magic, I received the inspiration to search online for 'Abraham Hicks Jealousy'.
As I listened, I learnt that negative emotion was the result of being pinched off from who you really are. I learnt that the real me didn't think or feel that way. That the contrast I was feeling was a signal of my detachment from my true self.
As I continued listening, I realised I had done this before in previous relationships. I'd projected my sense of insecurity onto other women which fuelled a perpetual cycle of self-doubt, comparing and ultimately self-sabotage. When I realised this, it was as if a light switch flipped. I knew then and there that I could no longer keep doing it.
I realised that I was looking for reasons to feel bad. Instead, as Abraham suggests, why not look for reasons to feel good? Reasons to feel good about my relationship and about me. Unknown to me at the time, this began a new obsession. An obsession with prioritising and nurturing the relationship I have with myself, and as Abraham says...
"The most important relationship you’ll ever have is the one you have with yourself."
— Abraham Hicks
When my boyfriend returned home, I was thrilled to be in a much better place. I was also thrilled to let him know how much I loved Abraham and how excited I was to listen to their recordings.
Now, at this point, you may be thinking (unless you're an Aber, yes it's a thing) sounds like some new age mumbo jumbo to me. Which is fine I'm not here to convince you of anything, for me though it just made sense.
In the four years that have passed, I've learnt countless lessons, experienced multiple Abraham seminars (there's me on the right at my first Abraham cruise), had numerous manifestations and met some remarkable people along the way. Yet the most important thing that I've gained, the one I cherish the most, is the appreciation I have for myself.
Now I'd love to hear from you! If you have any questions about the Law of Attraction, or if you want to talk with someone about Abraham Hicks let me know in the comments below or message me directly.
