I have been reading alot of Esther Hicks and Abraham quotes and playing tracks from their cds, lately, as a way of passing on learning about our vibrational natures. It is quite different from how we were trained so we are rather lacksadaisical about our own empowerment. We weaken ourselves by paying attention to negative things, unwanted things, bad things. If we didn't pay attention to them, they would not be in our life having a negative influence. It is only our attention to things we don't like, that keeps things we don't like stuck in our life.
