Allow Yourself To…. Allow Yourself

Another great quote from Abraham found it’s way into my inbox this morning:

When your heart is singing, you are allowing Well-being. When you are appreciating, you are allowing Well-being. When you are yelling at somebody, you’re not. When you’re feeling insecure, you’re not. When you’re frustrated, you’re not.

Abraham’s teaching really centers around allowing as opposed to resisting the good that we want to come to us.  I think most people, including me, will proclaim I am allowing it!  I really want it, and I am allowing it.  Am I?  Really?  Well, let’s see…

Although it isn’t my dominant vibration, today I am frustrated that I haven’t done my taxes yet.  (Each year I tell myself “I’m gonna do my taxes the first week in February,” yet the first week of March somehow sneaks up on me.)
And I am disappointed I didn’t have more people sign up for my last workshop.
And I am a little annoyed (just a little!) that the weekend weather is calling for rain, rain and more rain.  Normally, I enjoy the rain, but not on a weekend when I am dog-sitting my grandson, who just LOVES to walk!

Reading the email from Abraham got me to ask myself a very important question… actually two questions…make that three!

1. What am I thinking and feeling?
2. Are those thoughts and feelings allowing the Well-being I want?
3. What can I do about it?

I thought #3 was a rhetorical question, but a little voice in my head just said “Answer it, Linda!”
OK, OK!!!

Specifically, I can do my dang taxes.  Now there’s a brilliant way to eliminate the frustration!
And I can (and I do!) thoroughly appreciate the people who did sign up for my workshop.
And I can absolutely, positively, undoubtedly enjoy a few days with this little guy…rain or shine!

Ahhhhhhhhhh, I am feeling better, and therefore allowing better already!
How about you?

    • Thanks Bob, I’m glad you enjoyed it and appreciate you saying so! I know, he is SOOOOO cute and such a good little boy. Can’t wait for him to get here! 🙂

  1. Nice post and the topic of taxes is quite timely, too. My aversion to do taxes has more to do with my attitude toward money and how I perceive myself than actually filling out the forms. And while the specter of having to pay taxes looms large (even though I received refunds the last several years in a row!) I have come to realize that I dont have to do it alone. Rarely do I walk a path that someone else hasn’t already trod. Whats the saying? “A smart person learns from their mistakes, a wise person learns from the mistakes of others”.
    Having ADD/ADHD adds an additional challenge to taxes. I told my ADD doctor that I reserved one afternoon to do my taxes. He laughed and said most people cant do something they enjoy effectively for four hours, not to mention something that’s not enjoyable! So why do I always set myself up for failure-maybe another blog for Linda?-so I use a great accountant. My taxes are done already-and we refiled amended returns for the past five years. It was painful to start, but satisfying to be on a good financial path rather than feeling like I just dodged another bullet. I needed “help”, my pride made me wait too long to ask for it (we all know guys NEVER ask for directions).
    Every once in a while I get a text from a friend. “It just says “YANA”. It stands for “You are not Alone”. Its nice to know that help is always so very close. He also reminds me that I can’t control my first thought (with ADD they tend to be very negative), but I can control the next one!

    • YANA, I Love it! It’s funny~having a great accountant makes my part in the taxes so minimal, yet I put it off…and off…and… What helps me actually get-er-done is reminding myself of how GREAT it feels to deliver the envelope with the supporting documents. I can easily remember that feeling and it inspires me to sit my butt down and DO IT!!! Thanks Tim!

  2. Hi Linda,
    Great blog as per usual. Being in a state of allowing can be sometimes be extremely challenging. There is a fine line between allowing and resisting. I love Abraham as they are is so articulate about expressing our state of being regarding allowing.

    On paper it’s very simple, feel good and you will allow, feel lousy and you will resist. What I do is stop every now and again at various points of the day and simply ask myself, ‘How am I feeling?’. I often remove my consciousness and take a look at where I am emotionally. This soon let’s me know what state of being I’m in and if I need to make a shift.

    Tim, I love the YANA! We always need to remind ourselves of this fact. Knowing that we don’t walk this path alone should help when we face the big challenges.

    Have a great weekend Linda.
    RCH 🙂

    p.s. What a cute little doggie.

    • Robert, great comment…as per usual 🙂
      Like you, I also find myself asking “How am I feeling?” I think that’s a result of listening to Abraham, don’t you? Really increases our awareness about the importance of our FEELINGS

  3. Great post Linda! Very cute little guy! And as someone who also copes with add/adhd, I can share that taxes have been a major challenge ;along with a host of other stuff!:)), but I started utilizing some heavy duty goal setting:daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly, and this helping big time! I filed my taxes last week for the first time in my life EARLY! And I cannot stress enough how important it is to utilize help with this or anything you’re needing to develop. And yep, feeling negative, bitter, frustrated, or disappointed with yourself (or the world around you) is only going to turn your personal magnetic charge down…way down. Do the mental work as well as whatever physical work (say taxes!:)) that allow you to remain in a positive/beautiful mindset…that’s where all the good stuff is hiding.
