Take the Bounce: A Reason to Appreciate Contrast!

by AffirmingSpirit on February 28, 2010

This past week, those of us who receive Abraham-Hick’s twice-a-month MP3 files were treated to a new phrase: Take the Bounce.
Abraham used this phrase in answering a question about dealing with contrast, the unwanted experiences that are so different from what we believe we really want to experience. They patiently pointed out to the questioner that when you know what you DO NOT want, you *immediately* know what you DO WANT, so in that moment that you realize what you prefer…let it bounce you in the direction of what you want. Put aside the content of the contrast  and TAKE THE BOUNCE in the direction of what you do want.
Divers uses springboards to propel themselves into a swimming pool. In the moment you realize that contrast is present, it is also pointing you in the direction of your newly discovered preference! That energy of discovery, if seized in that moment, will aid you in *bouncing* away from the contrast and toward your new preference.
When the Contrast is… Take the bounce to…
Realizing you don’t have enough money… Image yourself having all the money you desire, any time
Showing you unkind behavior from your partner… Feel yourself with a loving, kind partner who is thoughtful to you
Tight-fitting clothes… Visualize comfortable close or your ideal body weight and fitness level
Not enough clients for your business… See yourself serving and appreciating the perfect number of clients
A health issue… Believe in your ability to heal yourself, feeling better than before
Now it’s your turn. Where is there contrast in your life that you can begin to appreciate for the bounce it is providing?

Anyone who follows the teachings of Abraham know that they are very creative in explaining concepts of Deliberate Creation, developing new phrases to help illustrate their points. This past week, those of us who receive Abraham-Hicks’ twice-a-month MP3 files were treated to a new phrase: Take the Bounce.

Abraham used this phrase in answering a question about dealing with contrast (Ashville, NC 11-1-09 workshop), those unwanted experiences that are so different from what we believe we really want to experience. They patiently pointed out to the questioner that when you know what you DO NOT want, you *immediately* know what you DO WANT, so in that moment that you realize what you prefer…let it bounce you in the direction of what you want. Put aside the content of the contrast  and TAKE THE BOUNCE in the direction of what you do want!

You can use contrast as a springboard to what you really want to experience. In the moment you realize that contrast is present, it is also pointing you in the direction of your newly discovered preference! That energy of discovery, if seized in that moment, will aid you in *bouncing* away from the contrast and toward your new preference.

When the contrast shows you that you don’t have enough money…Take the bounce to imagine yourself having all the money you desire, any time!

When the contrast shows you unloving behavior from your partner…Take the bounce to feel yourself with a loving, thoughtful, and appreciative partner.

When the contrast shows you how tight your clothes are fitting…Take the bounce to visualize yourself in comfortable clothes OR creating your ideal body and fitness level ~ whatever your preference is!

When the contrast shows you not enough paying clients in your business…Take the bounce to see yourself serving and appreciating the perfect number of paying clients, rewarding you for the value you provide!

When the contrast shows you  an undesirable health issue…Take the bounce to know your own ability to heal yourself, every cell in your body aligned with health, and you feeling better than ever before!

Taking the bounce toward your preference gives you energetic momentum to focus on what is wanted. From there you can get into the Vortex about your preference.

When you look at it this way, the contrast that shows up in  your life and is part of living, is really a blessing in its ability to provide that energetic bounce toward your preferences! Did you ever think you’d be so appreciative of contrast? Now you can actually look forward to contrast so you can take the bounce!

Now it’s your turn. Gather all the contrast showing up in your life, and see where you can take the bounce!

Beloved Nancy,

Thank you so much for sharing this as a reminder to us all.
Even when you live this truth daily, even when you teach it,
it is always good to read it and be reminded of Esther’s voice
echoing the words.

Blessings of Joy, Light and great Love.

HUGS,

Ben & Efrat

Ben and Efrat ~ thank you for stopping by!

I so agree, it’s wonderful to hear Abraham’s new analogies and how they bring even more clarity. Even those who *teach* enjoy being reminded. :o)

Many blessings,
Nancy

Hi Nancy,
I know this “Bounce” has been being discussed a lot at G.V.U.lately, but somehow just now….reading it here,I was really able to connect it with a recent thread I had posted. I was having a hard time navigating the territory where I feel like I am definitely passionate in a positive way about what I am doing as well as needing it too much in a desperate “I’m not sure I believe it can happen” kind of way.

I hadn’t realized this would be the perfect place to “bounce”, until now!

Thank you!!
