I watched a video by Burt Goldman (author of Quantum Jumping) and he mentioned that when we feel guilty about things in our life (past or present | consciously or subsconsciously) that it stops the "flow" of manifestation in our lives. Because when we feel guilty, we limit ourselves and what we're deserving of.

I found this quite interesting, as I've never put the two together before, yet makes a lot of sense.

Has anyone ever released guilt about something and witnessed manifestation shortly afterwards? If so, how did you do it? As releasing guilt could be challenging for some. He says it works pretty fast.

Yes, it will stop your manifestations because guilt is the 21. emotion on the emotional guidance scale of Abraham. http://www.psitek.net/assets/focusblocks/emotionalguidancescalemanifesting.jpg . This means that guilt is extremely anti-allowing in comparison.

Oh you're right! I should revisit that scale, it's been a very long time. Thank you for the reminder @releaser99!

As do the Fear Monsters "But/What if/Suppose/I'm Afraid/I Can't" (Fear is an Expectation ) SLAM them all with the I Can/I Will Success Mallet !

@releaser99 I like your Anti-Allowing Term , Thanks ;-) My version of Crap is Create Resistance Allowing Postponed

@releaser99 I always find this talk of "stopping manifestation" fascinating. The only way to stop manifestation is to die. You cannot stop manifestation because manifestation is simply experience. You are always manifesting. There are no emotions that block manifestation, emotions, if they do anything at all, simply direct the flow/shift the quality of manifestation.

@flowsurfer, You're correct, we are always manifesting. For sure. I was referring to desired manifestation. I should have been clearer. Thank you.

@Starlight Nice one, I like it!:). You should copyright that term :). @flowsurfer I see you are making progress allowing new ideas into your mind and internalizing them. I'm glad for you :)

@figure8shape Off topic but still linked - recently I heard someone ask Nora Herold why they couldn't consistently manifest abundance. Her answer was that many people have set up limiting situations in this life and until they feel more deserving of abundance it is hard to manifest it. The key is to convince yourself of your own deservability AND get into the vortex - guilt is a frequency of unworthiness. This goes back to loving yourself yet again of course. Good question F8S.

(22 Feb '13, 09:45) Catherine

@Catherine Yep, this is exactly my experience. I would just from my experience add that I got in the vortex regularly and THEN I was suddenly aware of that guilt feeling. So getting in the vortex daily is a perfect way to uncover those negative anti-allowing feelings automatically. The next step then is simply to be honest with your own feelings and clear them with a preferred permission slip.

Has anyone ever released guilt about something and witnessed manifestation shortly afterwards? If so, how did you do it? As releasing guilt could be challenging for some. He says it works pretty fast.

IMO it works really fast if you can sense how you actually feel, and if you are willing to be honest to yourself. You must be connected to your feelings to work your way out of guilt. You must shut down your logical mind completely. Just check how you feel. That's all you need.

You must be willing to experience this bad feeling fully first. Be totally honest to yourself first without being afraid of it. Because otherwise guilt will be hard to release. It could take you month your even years if you are not willing to be honest to yourself. It doesn't matter how blameful your thoughts seem to be. You must let them in first.

And for me Abraham's Process of "Which thought feels better?" works best for guilt. Take time for this process. Don't be in such a rush! Do it slowly. Do it as slow as you need it to be.

Which thought feels better?

When to Use This Process: • When you want to be consciously aware of how you really feel about something right now. • When you are faced with a decision, and you want to go in the best direction possible. • When you want to determine your current Emotional Set-Point. • When you want to become consciously aware of your Emotional Guidance System.

Current Emotional Set-Point Range - This process of Which Thought Feels Better? will be of the most value to you when your Emotional Set Point is ranging somewhere between: (4) Positive Expectation/Belief and (17) Anger.

Every subject is really two subjects: something that you desire, and the absence of something that you desire. If you do not understand that these are very different vibrational frequencies, then you may believe that you are focused on something that you desire, when you may, in fact, be focused in the opposite direction. Some believe that they’re focused upon the subject of a healthy body, when instead, they’re focused on the fear of a sick body. Some believe that they’re thinking about improving their financial situation, when instead, they’re focused on not having enough money. But because the subject is money or health, they believe that anytime they are focused upon the subject, they are thinking about what they want. And often that is not the case.

Often people say, “I’ve wanted this for as long as I can remember. Why hasn’t it happened yet?” Because they were not aware that every subject is really two subjects: what is wanted and the lack of it... For example, they thought that because they were talking about money, they were talking about what they wanted, when instead, they were focused on the opposite of what they wanted. Only when you are sensitive to the way you feel do you really know what your vibrational content is. But with some practice, you will become very adept at always knowing exactly where you are focused.

The Which Thought Feels Better? Process will help you consciously identify the vibrational frequency of your current thought. The game is most effectively played when you are alone because no one else can really know or understand which thoughts feel best to you. Often, when you are interacting with others, you may be confused about whether the thought actually feels better to you, or whether you are offering it because you think it is the choice someone else would want you to make.

It is important to leave everyone else’s ideas, desires, opinions, and beliefs aside while you identify, for yourself, how you feel. When Would You Play This Game? There are limitless possibilities of thoughts that you might think on limitless subjects, but your own life experience, and the contrast that you are living, will help you identify the subjects on which you may want to focus.

This game is especially helpful when something has occurred in your own experience that causes a noticeable amount of negative emotion. Understanding that negative emotion is an indicator of resistance, and further understanding that this resistance is the only thing that holds you apart from the things you really want, you may have decided to do something about releasing some resistance on this newly energized subject. A “Which Thought Feels Better?” Game Example This process works best if you can sit for a few minutes and write your thoughts on paper. In time, when you have played the game sufficiently, you will find success with it just by rolling the thoughts across your mind, but writing them down onto paper causes a much more powerful point of focus, which makes it easier for you to feel the direction of your chosen thought.

To begin: First, write a brief statement of how you feel about the subject right now. You could describe what has happened, but what is most important is that you describe how you feel. Next, write another statement that amplifies exactly how you feel. This helps you more easily recognize any improvement as you move through the process.

For example, you have just had an argument with your daughter because she makes no effort to help around the house. She does not even take care of her personal things, and her own room is a terrible mess. She seems to hold no regard for the effort you are making to maintain an orderly environment.

Not only does she not try to help, but it seems that she deliberately tries to hinder you. So you write: She [or write your daughter’s name] is deliberately trying to make my life difficult. She doesn’t care about me at all. She doesn’t even come close to doing her share of the work. Once you have made a few statements that indicate how you really feel right now, make this statement to yourself: I’m going to reach for some thoughts about this subject that feel a little better. Now, once you have written each thought, evaluate whether it feels better, the same, or worse than when you initially began. So you write:

  • She never listens to me. (same)
  • I want her to be more responsible, (same)
  • I shouldn’t have to pick up after her. (same)
  • I should have taught her better, (worse)
  • I wish her father would support me more, (worse)
  • A clean house is important to me. (slightly better)
  • I know she has a lot on her mind, (better)
  • I remember what it’s like to be a teenager, (better)
  • I remember when she was a sweet little girl, (better)
  • I wish she were still that sweet little girl, (worse)
  • I don’t know what to do about this, (worse)
  • Well, I don’t have to figure it all out today, (better)
  • There are so many things about her that I adore, (better)
  • I know there is more to life than a clean house, (better)
  • It should be okay that I want a clean house, (worse)
  • It’s all right that I want my house to be clean, (better)
  • It’s fine that she doesn’t care about that now. (better)

Remember, there are no right and wrong answers here, and no one else can really know which of your thoughts bring better or worse feelings to you. The value of this process is that you will become aware of how your thoughts feel—and you will become more adept at choosing better-feeling thoughts. Many would ask, “But what good would it be to feel better about my daughter’s sloppy habits? My thoughts won’t change her behavior.”

We want to say to you that your thoughts change the behavior of everyone and everything who has anything to do with you. For your thoughts absolutely equal your point of attraction, and the better you feel, the more that everything and everyone around you improves. In the moment that you find an improved feeling, conditions and circumstances change to match your feeling. The Which Thought Feels Better? game will help you begin to realize the power that your own thoughts have to influence everything around you.

Abraham, Speak to Us More about the Process of Which Thought Feels Better?

“Will I ever stop reaching for something better?” No. And when you take the limitations of time or dollars out of the equation, and you trust that the Universe will conspire to satisfy every idea you can conjure up, then you let your ideas rip. But as long as you feel limitations, then you keep trying to reign them in and reign them in and reign them in.

Perhaps you may say, “Well, our current circumstances really don’t allow us the money to do all this stuff that we want to do. We want to remodel our kitchen, and our decisions about not going into great debt about it are very clear decisions that we don’t want to violate. So what do we do with these exploding ideas?” And we say, does every one of them have to manifest right now? Or can you begin to take pleasure from the idea itself?

Can you say, “Well, if not right now, then soon, we will do this and this and this”? And so, you can begin to take pleasure from the growing of the idea, but when you put yourself on a schedule where there is a deadline, then very often the shortage of time or money looms up and contradicts the Energy, making you miserable.

It also makes you wish that you had never broached the idea to begin with. But then you can say, “Hmm, there’s a lifetime of kitchens before us, and, for now, we are most pleased with the manifestation of this, and what ideas we are conjuring for the future!” Then, one day, you might move into a new home, shocked that it already has all of the things within it that you have been conjuring. And it will come when you have enough money; you have enough time. In other words, the Universe will line it up in response to the ideas that you are giving birth to and freely letting flow.

Yesterdays daily quote.

Every cell in your body has a direct relationship with Creative Life Force, and each cell is independently responding. When you feel joy, all the circuits are open and the Life Force or God Force can be fully received. When you feel guilt or blame or fear or anger, the circuits are hindered and the Life Force cannot flow as effectively. Physical experience is about monitoring those circuits and keeping them as open as possible. The cells know what to do. They are summoning the Energy.

--- Abraham

and an older one

Complaining about anything holds you in the place of refusing to receive the things you've been asking for. Justifying about anything holds you in the place of refusing to let in the very things that you've been asking for. Blaming someone holds you in the place of refusing to let in the things that you've been asking for. Feeling guilty, feeling angry, it doesn't matter what you call it; it is a refusal, not a conscious one. You're asking; you can't help but ask. The Universe is yielding; it must yield. It's a big question, folks: why aren't you letting it in?

--- Abraham

@ursixx, Thank you. This is great. I haven't been listening to Abraham much since Jerry passed on, just feeeeels different to me, however will revisit some of the old tapes and talks as reminders. I have been listening to Abraham for over ten years now, and never really thought I had any issues with guilt, however as I work with the Manifestation Experiments, I am discovering things about myself that have been tucked away. Thanks for this.

You asked "Does guilt stop our manifestations?" My answer is no. You are still attracting according to your vibration. You are manifesting more of what you don't want. In this scenario, more things to feel guilty about. As others have pointed out ~ guilt is near the bottom of the emotional guidance scale. Guilt leads to shame & depression. Just as anger attracts more anger & complaining manifests more situations to complain about, guilt attracts more of what you don't want because it makes you feel worthless & robs you of your life force. If this is an issue for you; forgive yourself & your world will change...

Nothing can stop your manifesting. There seems to be a strange view amongst many that we can halt ,stop or limit manifestation. None of us can. We are all Black Belts in manifesting. We do it CONTINUOUSLY ,we do it without sometimes even being aware of it. We cannot NOT manifest.

I will repeat that, we simply cant help but do this.

We cant opt out of this.EVER.

Guilt will only ever ALTER what we manifest. Were all of us to manifesting what George Best was to football.

We can only ever alter what we manifest. Even the mundane humdrum of our live, or the really crappy stuff is only ever OUR manifestation.

Its working just fine. Guilts working perfectly, its manifesting what it always has. Its working a treat.
