Abraham and Linda’s July 2014 Newsletter
Live your life like you are dying...those words will definitely change your life or at least they did mine. It was early in the morning, but a very typical morning for me. My day usually starts around 2:30 or 3am no matter what time zone I am in the angels promptly awaken me to start my day. That morning I was awakened by a couple of wet licks on the cheek by our small white dog. The angels will often use him to get my attention if I do not respond to their initial calling of my name. Of course it was dark and still in the house, but I sleepily made my way to my sacred space where I joyfully spend time with Spirit and Abraham. I started our time together with my usual prayer time with God. For me prayer is not formal, as God and I talk so often it seems to be a continual conversation. We start by talking about my needs, not that he doesn't know them, but I am taught that God wants us to have an awareness of our needs and focus on working with him in manifesting fulfillment of those needs. We then proceed to my long list of people that have requested prayer or that I feel are in need of God's special attention. Sometimes this list is very long but I always trust that God is patient and attentive to my requests. When I finish my special time with God I always sit back to listen, as Abraham's group will come in to talk and teach. They talk about world situations and give direction for my work with them, sometime addressing the individual situations of people I am working with. Although it is common for them to give direct messages for my life, but todays message got my attention real fast. I was in such a state of bliss, joy and gratitude and then I was jolted back when I heard them say "Live your life like you are dying." My eyes flew open and I spoke out loud "Abraham, what did you just say?" I sat waiting for an answer, impatiently I asked again, "Abraham is there something you need to tell me. Am I dying?" I just hate it when they make me wait for an answer, sometimes they can be quite dramatic in an effort to get my attention and I was hoping this was just one of those times. **It is helpful to remember that the relationship that I have established with the Abraham group is similar to me talking with a group of best friends. They feel they can be straight up honest with me and they typically tell me like it is. I don't always like what they tell me but we have established a level of trust. They have always proven to possess much more wisdom than I have. I am sure that does not surprise you, since they are messengers of God's wisdom for us.
Anyway back to the story. When they did respond they told me that each lifetime what we experience in physical form is often much shorter than we anticipate and most of us live as if there will always be a tomorrow, a perpetual future or opportunity to experience life. No matter how old you are each day brings you closer to the end of your present life experience. Your soul co-created with God your proposed journey for each lifetime, your soul's goal to raise the spiritual vibration and awareness. This plan included opportunities to experience life with others from your soul group and to share situations to learn from as well as healing karma and situations from past lives. All life times are created as a plan of great purpose.
This all sounded really good, but I was ready to get back to the original statement that started this conversation. I sat patiently listening but couldn't resist , "OK I have heard all of this before but how does this effect me at this time. Because it is all about me you know."
I heard laughter as they began again, but a bit more focused on me. They talked about how so many of us, not just me, lose focus on what we want in life or maybe for some we never dare to dream or plan for life. They may not realize that there is a purpose. They are not living life, just existing until the experience is over. They said that many of us are not accomplishing what we came here to do, our true purpose and a purpose of balance. Again I said "But what about me, I am doing what I am supposed to be doing, right?" I was looking for some confirmation of praise. I won't get too personal about the points, but Abraham asked me if I was ready to have closure with this lifetime. Because of my extensive knowledge of the death experience I have no fear of death and often say I looked forward to the journey and on my challenging days frequently mention to Spirit that would like to apply for a job on the other side. But was I really ready to die? Had I truly finished with this lifetime? Having learned the real importance of each lifetime had I accomplished all that I came here to do? What kind of karma had I created or healed? Had I been a positive influence on someone's life? I'd had many experiences but had I learned anything? Had I worked through and healed all of my issues? What did I have left to accomplish? What had I done with my life? Had I fulfilled my contracts with others? Had I done the best I could?
All of these questions were going through my mind when Abraham asked me "If you knew you only had 6 months to live how would you spend your remaining time?" What are your goals or dreams? Where is your joy?
Before I even had time to think about that time frame, they proceeded to asked "If you only had one more month to live in physical form how would you live your life differently?"
And then they asked "If you had only one week left to experience life what would be of greatest importance to you? Who would you spend time with? What would you say to them? What would you want the final days of your life to include?"
These questions definitely set me to thinking about my life and my relationships.
Our relationships are of such importance to our life. The experiences we share with others are an important part of our life purpose. Yet we often have unresolved relationship issues that influence our lives in a negative way. We allow our pain, anger, judgment and fears of the past to frequently dictate how we live our current life. How could something as simple as forgiveness release us of the limitation these emotions have created? You are seldom able to release the past and learn to give and receive love until you can learn to forgive.
Abraham said many of us have become so busy functioning in the challenges of life and surviving life that we may have lost the true meaning of life. It is important to consider the future and take responsibility for your life, but do not lose the value of the present opportunity. Live in the moment, enjoy and value the present experience you are having. Use that experience of life to it's full potential. Learn to live a life of balance, a physical and spiritual balance, as well as a physical, mental and emotional balance. Learn to maintain a healthy functioning physical body. Seek the experience of happiness, peace, joy and love, as these are an essential part of a balanced mental, emotional life. It is up you to determine your own perception and reaction to the situations you experience.
In working with people who have lost a loved one I find that they frequently have a sense of unfinished business, unspoken words of love or forgiveness that they failed to share before the death. Often death is unexpected and that makes it even harder, as there does not seem to be a time of closure, of final words. No matter the situation we are never ready to lose that person from our life. Not really. At times we may logically know that death is in their highest good to be released from their trauma or illness but we still feel the grief. It is important to understand grief and learn to process it to resolve the pain.
While you have the opportunity of sharing, why not learn to express your feelings? For some of you this may not come natural, but believe me you will wish you had learned how to share these words when you lose a loved one. Are there emotions of love that have not been recently expressed between you and a loved one? Do you have unfinished sentiments of forgiveness that need to be shared? If you knew a loved one who had hurt you in the past was going to die would you still feel the need to hold on to an unresolved anger? Then why waste your time and energy holding on to the pain and anger of the situation even if they are not dying? Set yourself free and find forgiveness, as this opens your heart to receive more energy of love, happiness and joy into your life.
Live life as if you were dying...how would that situation change your perspective of life? Try exchanging the unhappiness in your life for joy...it is your choice.
Abraham gave me a lot to think about and ideas as to how I want to live my life. No matter how long I have left in this physical form I did see that I have unfinished business. In our next newsletter I hope to share with you the changes I have made. What changes will you make to your life?

Secret Pathways Cover
Who is Abraham:
Every month I have new readers join our newsletter list. I was reminded that not everyone is familiar with the Abraham Group that I work with. I apologize for neglecting to share this important information with you.
Abraham is a group consciousness of high vibrational spiritual beings. That is a long title for a group of beings that work for God. Their purpose is to bring humanity the wisdom and guidance of God for the advancement of our soul's journey. They do not function with ego but much of their work is done though human channels. They have chosen multiple people to work through in delivering their messages. Although Abraham works with many channels, their most well known channel is Esther Hicks. She has been channeling their messages and writing books with them for over 30 years.
Their messages can be both individual or global depending on the situation. Each channel gives the same message yet often in a slightly different way due to our personality. You each receive knowledge differently, and often need to hear it multiple time before applying to to your life. The Abraham group focus on positive intent and empowerment for our lives.
Spirit presented this group to me as my teachers about 11 years ago when my awareness of my spiritual journey began. During this time, they have continually assisted me with my own spiritual development, as well as our work in helping others heal their lives. They have channeled their guidance through the books we have written and the workshops we teach.
They bring us hope and knowledge of the soul's journey through life, into death and the world beyond. You can go to my website www.Lindadrakebooks.com to read more about my journey with Abraham and Spirit.
We all need spiritual support. Whether that support comes through personal interaction with like-minded groups and classes or the stimulation of your mind and heart through the knowledge shared in spiritually based books, it is important to continually nurture your spiritual self.
The spirit within you craves acknowledgment and care taking of it's needs for the advancement of your soul's journey. An expanded spiritual experience holds you in the light and love of God, enabling you to give and receive love of both self and others beyond any current limitations.
