Are you old enough to remember the popular toys from the 1970s, Weebles? They were plastic figures with a weighted bottom so when they were tapped they'd wobble but not fall over, much like the later punching bags that are still available.
What on earth does that have to do with Abraham, and who the heck is Abraham anyway? "Abraham" is the name given to the energy channeled by Esther Hicks (Abraham-Hicks.com), and is one of the originators in our time of powerful teachings about how we create our lives. For decades, this collective consciousness has guided millions of people around the world through concepts such as co-creation, law of attraction, and intention. I've been studying this work for a long time now, and recently was thrilled to be able to attend an Abraham workshop live.
Although I am still reeling from the wealth of knowledge I obtained that morning, the key concept that struck me is that of wobbling. When we set an intention ("I want to...") followed by a condition ("...but...") we create an energetic wobble between the two. Wobble, confusion, creates a block between you and what you want. As I learned from Abraham, key to clear conscious focus on your desires is staying with the "I want."
Try it yourself. Throw your left hand into the air and say "I want" and state one of your goals. Immediately throw out your right hand and say "but..." and state a condition ("but I don't have it...but I don't know how...."). Notice the strong shift in your body? Now once again throw your left hand out and firmly state an intention. Do it again. And again. That's the key to manifestation - a firm stance, no wobbling!
