Abraham-Hicks Quote

100 Quotes from The Vortex

I love quotes! Here are 100 quotes from one of my favorite books by Esther and Jerry Hicks, and Abraham – The Vortex: Where the Law of Attraction Assembles All Cooperative Relationships. Enjoy!

1 “Your life is supposed to feel good to you.”

2 “Before your birth into your physical body, you knew that once you were here, you would be surrounded by others and that your relationships with those others would be the primary source of the contrast you would live.”

3 “Before your birth into your physical body, you knew the value of variety and of diversity, for you understood that every new preference, desire, or idea would be born from that contrast.”

4 “You will never find yourself in a point in time when the subject of relationships is not an active part of your now experience, for everything you perceive or notice or know is because of your relationship with something.”

5 “Often, when you observe an unwanted or unpleasant experience, you believe that you are not personally a part of it, but instead a distant, dissociated, unattached observer of it; but that is never the case. Your observation of a situation – no matter how remote you believe yourself to be – makes you a co-creative partner of the experience.”

6 “Someone who takes the time to understand their relationship with Source, who actively seeks alignment with their Broader Perspective, who deliberately seeks and finds alignment with who-they-really-are, is more charismatic, more attractive, more effective, and more powerful than a group of millions who have not achieved that alignment.”

7 “There is no relationship of greater importance to achieve than the relationship between you, in your physical body, right here and now, and the Soul/Source/God from which you have come. If you tend to that relationship first and foremost, you will then, and only then, have the stable footing to proceed into other relationships.”

8 “It was never your intention to control everything around you. It was your intention to control the direction of your thought.”

9 “Much of the imbalance that people feel long after they leave the immediate environment of their childhood home stems from the impossible effort of replacing their own Guidance System by seeking approval from their parents.”

10 “Seek alignment between you and You, first, before you engage with any other. And never ask for a behavioral change from any other to use as you basis of improved emotion or perspective. There are simply too many moving parts, and you will not succeed.”

11 “It was your clear intention to come forth into your magnificent physical body and to interact with the variety of intentions and beliefs and desires of others upon your planet for the purpose of expansion.”

12 “We want you to realize that while you are focused in your physical body, thinking thoughts, speaking words, involved in action…at the same time there is a Non-Physical aspect of you who exists in the Non-Physical realm from which you have come – and the Non-Physical aspect of you has expanded because of your physical experiences.”

13 “Everything that you perceive here in your physical environment is Vibration, and the life you are living is your Vibrational interpretation.”

14 “The powerful Law of Attraction is at the root of everything that you experience; and the stable, never changing, always-accurate premise of this Law is: that which is like unto itself is drawn.”

15 “Each time your physical life experience causes you to ask for something, a Vibrational, rocketlike request shoots forward and is received by your Inner Being and becomes the vibrational expanded version of your request. In order to help you get a sense of that process of expansion, we have called it your Vibrational Escrow or your Vibrational Reality. It is the furthermost expanded version of you.”

16 “The Vortex is literally drawing in all things necessary for the completion of every request it contains. All cooperative components are being summoned and are coming for the completion of these creations, for the answering of these questions, for the solutions to these problems.”

17 “Everyone who turns up in your life – from the people you call friends or lovers, to the people you call enemies or strangers – comes in response to your Vibrational asking. You not only invite the person, but you also invite the personality traits of the person.”

18 “The interaction, intertwining, and co-creation of relationships enhances your individual experience enormously. Your greatest joys and your greatest sorrows come from the basis of your relationships, but you have more control over whether you experience joy or sorrow than you realize.”

19 “Remember that whether you are thinking about wanted things or unwanted things, you are still sending out a ‘request’ to attract more things like the subject of your thought. And all things that happen to you – all people, things, experiences, situations that come to you – come in response to your Vibrational invitation.”

20 “The culmination of relationships and circumstances and events that you draw to you is utterly accurate in its response to your Vibrational requests. Noticing how things are turning out for you is one very clear way of understanding which Vibrational requests you are emanating, because you always get the essence of what you are thinking about, whether you want it or not.”

21 “It is possible to become aware of the attracting of an unwanted situation and to head it off before it comes into full realization in your experience by becoming aware of, and utilizing, the wonderful Emotional Guidance System you were born with.”

22 “You cannot stand still. If you are awake, you are in the process of expansion.”

23 “The Art of Allowing is simply your allowing yourself, by virtue of your deliberately chosen thoughts, to keep up with the expansion of yourself. And since the expansion is happening – because the contrast of your time-space reality insists that it does – if you are to be happy, you have no other choice than to keep up.”

24 “You intended to decide what you want and, by the power of your focus and the Law of Attraction, to attract it. – and to allow others to do the same. You understood that diversity not only provides the basis of your strength and of your expansion, but of your very existence – because if there is no expansion, existence cannot continue to be.”

25 “Most of the guidance, rules, and laws that are passed down from generation to generation are written by people who are not in the state of ‘allowing’ their Connection with their Broader knowledge. In other words, the majority of the guidance that is thrust upon you has come from a perspective of lack, and it cannot lead you to an improved situation.”

26 “You did not begin on the day you were born into your physical body. You are eternal Consciousness, with an Eternal history of becoming and of worthiness. And while a part of that worthy, Non-Physical, Eternal, God Force, Creative Consciousness expressed itself into the Being you know as you – the larger part of You remained, and remains, Non-Physically focused in Pure, Positive Energy and absolute worthiness.”

27 “ While it never feels good to you to view yourself (or anything else) differently than the Source within you sees it, over time you became accustomed to the discomfort of your gradual disempowerment – until, eventually, you began looking to others for guidance, leaving your own Guidance to fade into the backround.”

28 “Before your birth, you relished the idea of contrasting relationships that would cause your expansion, and whenever you allow your own catching up with that expansion, you will then bless the seeming struggle that made it so.”

29 “When you are Vibrationally out of balance with your desired results, there is not enough action in the world to compensate. Without working to achieve Vibrational alignment with what you really want, but instead, offering action to push against, or fix, existing problems, the Law of Attraction will bring you a steady stream of problems to fix – and you will never get out ahead of them.”

30 “The people in your life will always give you exactly what you expect. No exceptions.”

31 “You have no real control of what anyone else is doing with their Vibration (or with their actions, for that matter), but you have complete control over your own thoughts, Vibrations, emotions, and point of attraction.”

32 “You must first find harmony between you and You, and then, and only then, is any other harmony possible. And when you consistently achieve harmony between you and You (which is what we refer to as the state of allowing), then it is possible to find harmony with others even though you have disagreements. In fact, that is the perfect environment for expansion and joy: diversity of beliefs and desires – but alignment with Source.”

33 “Your true happiness happens when you discover that no one other than yourself is responsible for the way you feel. If you believe that others are responsible for the way you feel, you are in true bondage, because you cannot control how they behave or how they feel.”

34 “If you are remembering past unpleasing relationships and using those as your justification for wanting or needing a better one, you are a match to what you do not want, and what you do want is postponed. But if you can bring yourself to a place of consistently feeling good, even in the absence of the relationship that you desire, the rendezvous is certain. In fact, it is Law.”

35 “Think about what you want in a relationship and why you want it. Look for those around you who are experiencing good relationships, and feel appreciation for them. Make lists of the positive aspects of those you have spent time with… In fact, one of the fastest ways to make your way to a wonderful relationship is to find any subject that consistently feels good, and focus on that even if it has nothing to do with relationships.”

36 “When you remember that you have already Vibrationally created your perfect relationship, and that it is all queued up for you in your Vibrational Reality, and that your work now is to just not offer an opposing Vibration about it – and that it has to come to you – then it must come quickly.”

37 “The people you would describe as having ‘exceptional ability’ are usually those who are in alignment with who-they-really-are. The brilliance or clarity or intuitiveness that denotes ‘exceptional ability’ are also characteristics of a person in alignment.”

38 “Appreciate your government, or any other, in every way you can; and, in doing so, you will not disallow the thriving that is already set up for you, and by you, that is on its way to you. The powerful Law of Attraction always, no exceptions, is best qualified to deliver to you the standards that your own individual lives have set.”

39 “Humans are here to specifically create through more specific focus. Animals do less specific creating and are much less inclined to sift through contrast and make decisions. In simple terms, humans are more creative, and animals are more allowing. That is your natural bent.”

40 “Animals intuitively move toward anything or anyone who offers benefit, and away from anyone or anything who does not offer benefit.”

41 “If your life has caused you to ask for an improved situation – no matter what it is – and you are no longer offering chronic thought-Vibrations that are opposite of your desire, your desire must come to you. But you cannot continue to keep alive within you Vibrational patterns of what you do not want, and receive what you do want. That defies the Law of Attraction.”

42 “If your time-space reality has the where-withal to inspire a desire within you, it is our absolute promise to you that your time-space reality has the ability to deliver, in full-manifested form, the reality of the desire it has inspired.”

43 “Any and all desires can be fulfilled unless you are holding yourself out of alignment with your own desire. The feeling of competition or shortage, or limitation of resources, means you are out of alignment with your own desire.”

44 “It requires continual deliberate focusing upon the positive aspects of any relationship to maintain the good-feeling productivity of it over time. You cannot allow your “now” thoughts to drift toward unwanted without having both current and future negative impact upon the object of your attention.”

45 “It is liberating to realize that by utilizing the power of your thoughts – by deliberately aligning them with the expanded version of your life that you have given birth to – you can get anywhere you want to be from wherever you are.”

46 “Nothing ever remains the same. Things are constantly changing, but often, because of chronic patterns of thoughts, even though things are changing – they are changing to more of the same.”

47 “It is not possible to create an improved future by dwelling on the problems of the past. That simply defies Law. Focusing on problems of the past , or the present, will prevent you from moving to the solutions in your future. Focusing on the problems of the past, or the present, will guarantee a problematic future.”

48 “Therapy can be of value in the sense that any discussion about the unwanted aspects of your life experience can help you to know more clearly what changes you prefer, but beyond that discovery, a continued discussion of unwanted things will only hold you in those unwanted patterns of attraction. If, however, once you are keenly aware of what you do prefer, you will focus upon that, your life must improve.”

49 “The way to avoid repeating unwanted situations is to talk about wanted situations. Talk about what you do want; and discontinue dialogue about any unwanted experiences, situations, or results.”

50 “Monitoring thoughts can be tedious and tiring, so the best approach to deliberately change the direction of your thoughts is to reinforce your desire to feel good. Once you are determined to improve the way you feel, you will begin to catch yourself in the more early, subtle stages of negative attraction. It is easier to release a negative thought in the beginning stages of it than after it has gained more momentum.”

51 “When negative emotion is present, it always indicates discord between the perspective of Source and the perspective of you in your physical body.”

52 “Seeing what you do not want until you can no longer stand it, and then leaving the situation and going somewhere else, does not bring a lasting solution, because the reason you left is the dominant Vibration within you, which means more scenarios like the one you just walked away from are making their way into your experience again.”

53 “It may sound odd, but the fastest way to get to a new-and-improved situation is to make peace with your current situation. By making lists of the most positive aspects you can find about your current situation, you then release your resistance to the improvements that are waiting for you. But if you rail against the injustices of your current situation, you hold yourself in Vibrational alignment with what you do not want, and you cannot then move in the direction of improvement. It defies Law.”

54 “In every particle of the Universe, there is that which is wanted – and the lack of it. By making a decision to orient yourself to look for what is wanted, you will change your Vibrational patterns of resistance, and it will not be possible to remain in unwanted situations for long periods of time.”

55 “A joyful life is not about gaining control of the factors that surround you. A joyful life is about coming into alignment with who-you-are. Joy is not about controlling other people or circumstances. Joy is about controlling your own Vibrational relationship between the physical you and the Non-Physical You. It is alignment with Source that is joy or love or success or satisfaction.”

56 “The only way to solve a problem is to look toward the solution. And, when you are looking in the direction of the solution, you always feel an improvement in your emotions. Looking back at the problem always feels worse.”

57 “Being in a state of love means being in the state of complete alignment with the Vibration of the Source within you. When you are in a state of love, there is no active Vibration of resistance within you.”

58 “While it does, and should, feel good to be appreciated by another person, if you are dependent upon their appreciation to feel good, you will not be able to consistently feel good, because no other person has the ability, or a responsibility, to hold you as their singular, positive object of attention. Your Inner Being, however, the Source within you, always holds you, with no exceptions, as a constant object of appreciation. So if you will tune your thoughts and actions to that consistent Vibration of Well-Being flowing forth from your Inner Being – you will thrive under any and all conditions.”

59 “The basis of a really good relationship is two people is two people who are already feeling very good about who they individually are. Then when they come together, they are a couple who feels good.”

60 “Everything that everyone desires is for one reason only: they believe they will feel better in the having of it. We just want you to understand that you must feel better before it can come to you.”

61 “You can get to where you want to be from wherever you are – but you must stop spending so much time noticing and talking about what you do not like about where you are.”

62 “The responsive Universe makes no distinction between the thoughts you think about your current reality and the thoughts you think as you dream of your improved life. You are creating by virtue of what you are thinking about, and so there is no advantage whatsoever to pondering, or remembering, or observing, or speaking of things you do not want. Make your active Vibration be about what you do want and notice how quickly your life changes to match your Vibration.”

63 “While you have, deep within you, a desire for harmonious relationships, there is an even stronger, deeper tenet, or basis, of your very Beingness: your desire to be free. And at the basis of your desire to be free is your desire to feel good – and at the basis of your desire to feel good is an unhindered relationship between you and You.”

64 “A consistently good-feeling relationship occurs when each of the parties involved is maintaining his or her own Connection with Source. There is no substitute for that relationship. There is just not another person who can love you enough to compensate for your lack of alignment with Source.”

65 “When you discover the art of looking for, and finding, positive aspects in others – so much so that you develop an expectation for positive things from others – only positive things can come to you.”

66 “When two or more minds come together that are positively focused upon a subject, those two minds are many times more powerful than one-plus-one. And so, the attraction of ideas and solutions goes beyond the sum total of the two individuals. It is truly exhilarating. And it is really what co-creating is all about.”

67 “The physical action of mating, or moving in together, or marriage, cannot fill the void that exists when you are Vibrationally out of alignment with who-they-really-are. But if you have tended to that alignment first, then the physical action of co-creating can be sublime. In other words, do not take the action in order to fix misalignment. Fix misalignment and then find a mate.”

68 “If you are a person who has trained yourself to look for positive aspects, you will find them in yourself as well as in others. If you are a person who has trained yourself to look for negative aspects, you will find them in yourself as well as in others. Therefore, it is always accurate to say that no one who is critical of others really likes themselves. It defies Law. Whenever you see those who are very critical of others, you are actually seeing people who do not like themselves.”

69 “When you really like yourself, you are in harmony with the Source within you; and when that is the case, your appreciation of others flows abundantly – and when that is the case, wonderful things flow steadily to you.”

70 “You are the thinking, vibrating attractor of your experience; and the thoughts you think determine everything about the life that you live. As you turn your attention toward the positive aspects of the personalities and behaviors of others with whom you share your planet, you will train your point of attraction in the direction of only what you desire.”

71 “Not only does the power of your thought determine which people make their way into your life, but the power of your thought determines how they behave once they get there.”

72 “You cannot get the relationship of your dreams when your chronic thoughts about relationships feel lonely or angry or worried or disappointed. But as you look for things you appreciate in yourself and others – as you make lists of positive aspects of past and present relationships – you train your Vibrational offerings to match the Vibration of your desires, and your ‘perfect mate’ must then come. It is Law.”

73 “When you do become adept at directing your thoughts to things that are pleasing, the unpleasing people (or unpleasing aspects of those people) will leave your experience. It is your attention to the unwanted that holds it in your experience.”

74 “If you will simply imagine your life as you want it to be, all cooperative components will be summoned. And even more important, all components that are summoned will cooperate. It is Law.”

75 “When you are able to focus in such a way as to allow your alignment with Source, even though others are choosing to behave differently than you are choosing, then you will truly be free from the bondage of attempting the impossible task of getting everyone to agree on one right way. One right way would lead to endedness. Many right ways allow Eternal expansion.”

76 “It is always true that the harder you push against what you do not want – the more of what you do not want comes into your experience.”

77 “The emotions that you feel, without exception, are indicators of the Vibrational alignment – or variance – between the thought your human brain is focused upon and the perspective of your Broader Non-Physical Perspective regarding the same subject.”

78 “There is not only one guidance list handed down from Source for all, but individual Guidance for all physical Beings, in all points in time and space, and regarding all situations.”

79 “When you remember that the varied behavior of others adds to the balance and the Well-Being of your planet even if they offer behavior that you do not approve of; and that you do not have to participate in the unwanted behavior, and will not – unless you give your attention to it – you become more willing to allow others to live as they choose.”

80 “You cannot be in the state of pushing against what you do not want and be in harmony with what you do want at the same time. And so, you will never get to a better-feeling state by trying to control others, no matter how well-meaning you believe your motives to be.”

81 “Your societies will never find the happiness they seek – or know the deliciousness of tru freedom – as long as they believe in controlling the behavior of one another. It is the control of your thought, and the alignment with your Broader perspective, that you are really seeking.”

82 “When it becomes your dominant intention to find good-feeling thoughts, then you become one who is most often a Vibrational Match to the Source within you, and the good feeling that will then be usually present within you is your indication that you are fulfilling your reason for being and that you are continuing to keep up with the expansion of your own Being.”

83 “Anger and hatred and condemnation are not symbols of alignment with God – but indicators of misalignment with that which you call God.”

84 “The majority of negative emotions that you feel are not because the subject of your thought is wrong, but instead, because you are condemning something that your Source does not condemn. Your Source is one of love, not one of condemnation.”

85 “ The most powerful force inherent in all who exist is the acknowledgment of personal freedom.”

86 “Being physical does not separate you from Source, and having sex does not diminish your Spiritual connection. It is pushing against unwanted, and learning patterns of Vibration that are different from the Vibration of Source, that disconnects you from Source.”

87 “There is nothing more Spiritual than to allow the true spirit that is you to flow through you into your physical life. The absence of Spirituality is not about the subject or the activity. It is about the Vibrational choices that you are making.”

88 “You must be selfish enough to be in alignment with your true self before you have anything to give.”

89 “When two or more people interact who are personally in alignment with their own Broader Perspective, the physical rendezvousing is pleasant, productive, and life-giving.”

90 “As each of you lives the details of the contrast that surrounds you and sends forth the constant Vibrational rockets of expansion, you must follow those rockets and allow yourself the full evolution of that expansion – or you cannot be happy.”

91 “What people do not understand is that you do not choose something by looking at it and shouting ‘Yes, I would like some of that!’ You make your choices by your attention to things. In this Universe that is based on attraction, when you look at an unwanted thing, your attention to it causes an activation of the Vibration within you, and then the Law of Attraction brings more like it into your experience.”

92 “One who is in alignment with Source is more powerful than millions who are not. And so, the person most aligned with his Inner Being, his Vortex of Creation, and the power that creates worlds will emerge as leader. People naturally gravitate to clear-minded, stable, happy people.”

93 “People often assume that because a child is not yet offering words, the child could not be the creator of its own experience, but it is our promise to you that no one else is creating your experience. Children emanate Vibrations – which are the reason for what they attract – even from their time of birth.”

94 “Your physical world is an extension of Non-Physical Energy and creation. Everything that you now behold was created from the conscious attention of Source Energy.”

95 “The key to getting inside your Vibrational Vortex of Creation, of experiencing the absolute absence of resistance, of achieving complete alignment with all that you have become and all that you desire, and of bringing to your physical experience everything that you desire – is being in the state of appreciation. And there is no more important object of attention to which you must flow your appreciation than that of self. The habit of thought, or belief, that holds most people outside of their Vortex of Creation, more than all other thoughts put together, is the lack of appreciation of self.”

96 “The reason why the bravado that you were born with usually fades is because you allow yourself to become distracted from your Vortex. In other words, you allow others to convince you that it is more important to you to pay attention to how they feel than how you feel.”

97 “It is natural that you thrive, and the resources are there for all to thrive. But chronic thoughts of shortage, or chronic thoughts of pushing against those who are thriving, hold you in contradiction to your own desires and, more important, to what you have put into your Vortex of Creation for yourself.”

98 “If you would like more abundance for yourself, personally, or for others you care about – you must not criticize those who are experiencing abundance. When you criticize or condemn or push against anything, you activate an opposing Vibration to what you seek. Every time. No exceptions.”

99 “True success is not the attainment of things, or the achievement of tasks, or the achievement of financial abundance. True success is the coming into alignment with You. Yes, selfishly aligning with your desires, your clarity, your confidence, your knowledge, your love – with yourself!”

100 “We all make too much of all of this. It is simpler than we all make it out to be. Be easy about it. Be kind to yourself. Do things that feel fun. Look for things that bring you relief, and just easily move into that place (your Vortex) where all things that you want have already been lined up for you.”
