Gabriel: The whole purpose of the work is to make you conscious—conscious of what you’re doing, conscious of what you’re not doing, conscious of what is taking place where your unconscious choices and actions create unconscious cycles of manifestation and reality in your life. So you can change and shift those. But you can’t change and shift anything you’re not conscious of. As you become more conscious of how you are making choices in the subconscious without knowing it, then you will become more aware of the effect on your reality. As you become consciously aware, you can make conscious choices and can, therefore, create a conscious reality. You can manifest consciously, rather than making choices that are based upon defenses of which you’re not even aware.
You see, you create reality through what you resonate with anyway. But most people don’t know what they resonate with. And most people resonate at a very low frequency based upon all their resistance, all their trauma, and all their stuff that is stored in their nervous system in the emotional and physical bodies. For instance, when you say “I want this” and the opposite happens. What that is illustrating to you is that you are unconsciously resonating with something that is the opposite of what you say you want, something that lies in the unconscious or the subconscious of which you are not aware.
Often people will say to us, “I want this, Gabriel.” And we say, well, what are you doing about it? They say, well, I’m doing this. And we say, well, that’s not going to get you what you want. Are you willing to do this, this, and this—take these steps towards what you say you want? And they say, well, what if this happens, or that happens, or I’m afraid or I’m this or I’m that. Therefore, they don’t resonate with the reality they want. They resonate with the reality they want to avoid, which is why they have it.
To resonate with the reality you want, you have to be conscious of the reality you want to avoid. You have to release that avoidance in order to move towards what you want. The only reason people don’t have what they want is because they’re not available to it. They don’t resonate with it.
Any given reality is available to you, anything that you ask for because the universe is a benign, neutral energy that says, yes. Your commitment determines what you manifest. If your commitment is to avoid something that you don’t want, then you’ll manifest that because that’s what you resonate with. All your attention is focused on avoiding what you don’t want. So doesn’t it follow that you will have what you don’t want? Because that is what all your attention is focused on.
You see, if you want to avoid a feeling—let’s say you want to avoid a feeling of being deprived. It’s like ringing up the universe on the cosmic telephone and saying, hello universe, I would like to avoid the feeling of being deprived. I hate this feeling. I don’t want to be deprived. And the universe says, all right, that’s your commitment. We’ll support that. Here’s a way you can fight deprival—by giving you something when you’re deprived so you can fight it. And then you say, well, now I really hate this feeling, and I really want to get rid of it. And then the universe gives you more extreme ways to fight it, more extreme circumstances until you are willing to see what you are doing and change your commitment.
Joel: How do we manifest what we want?
Gabriel: By being aware of your feelings and of whether you are accepting those feelings or resisting them. If you are resisting them, you are fighting them. You’re keeping them in place, and you need circumstances to fight them with. You see, if my fear in intimate relationships is the fear of rejection or abandonment, I will always attract someone who will reject and abandon me because that’s my commitment. I want a relationship where I can fight this feeling, this fear of abandonment and rejection. So I’ll always attract someone who is unavailable who abandons and rejects me. So I can maintain my commitment. Do you see?
Joel: Yes, but what is so frustrating is that people are affirming all the time what they believe they want: “I want a loving, fulfilling relationship.” And they’re getting the opposite.
Gabriel: That’s right, because fighting abandonment and rejection are more important than having a loving relationship. Their commitment is not to having a loving relationship. If they were committed to having a loving relationship, they would have to first accept their feelings that they want to avoid so they can move toward being loving. If you’re fighting abandonment and rejection, you’re not committed to being loving. You’ve committed to destroying something.
