If you know me at all, you know I’m happy to share helpful information, or a valuable resource about anything, especially about the subject of relationships. I love passing information to you that is useful in a daily way or a lifetime kind of way, no matter where it comes from
I love sharing what works.
Also, if you know me, you’re aware that I’m a very big fan of Abraham-Hicks material. I’ve listened to hours and hours of their work over the last 10 years or so. Their material has been beyond valuable to me personally. And every once in a while, even after all this time, I hear something that totally blows me away. which happened (yet again!) this morning. I was blown away.
There I was doing yoga on the mat. Thinking it would be fun to listen to a YouTube recording while I stretched, I reached over to my phone and found one. I pushed PLAY as I did my first down dog.
But you know what? The Abraham conversation I heard was so perfectly unfolding, so masterful, so helpful to anyone in a partnership, that I did a few minutes of yoga and then without thinking, found myself spontaneously, naturally, completely still as I listened to this amazing exchange. Here’s how it starts.
HE: I want to know how to stay positive and have a happy marriage when the other partner is really negative.
(gentle laughter from the crowd, in recognition of his situation)
HE: (continues) I meditate, I’ll be in a happy mood, and man! Bam! She hits me with this stuff, and she always wants to talk about the negative. And I’ll tell her, hey I don’t want to talk about the negative, I want to talk about the positive. It’s been a real struggle, especially since we have a 2 month old baby. And it’s real hard on me. I’m practicing, I’m trying, and it works in a lot of areas in my life, but this one is the hardest.
So Abraham begins very gently with a talk about compassion, saying that compassion isn’t quite like sympathy or empathy. Instead, according to Abraham, compassion is being in a receptive mode and focused on someone, so that your viewpoint is including the viewpoint of your Source.
What an amazing definition of compassion.
So what this young man is given, in 17 minutes and 13 seconds is a very poignant lesson about what to do about talking to his negative wife. I’m going to keep today’s blog really short so you can spend a little time listening to this totally brilliant conversation. And if you’d like to join me for an outstanding online relationship event, go to LOVE THE ONE YOU’RE WITH. If you like the Abraham recording, you’ll like this event. I guarantee it.
