Get Rid of Doubt by Not Having It – Lesson 7 of 7 from Abraham-Hicks Workshop

This is the final lesson in my series of insights that I took away from my first Abraham-Hicks workshop.  Here’s a recap of the entire series if you want to read more:

Lesson 1: You have to care about how you feel.

Lesson 2: There are no setbacks in life.

Lesson 3: Speak only about what you want.

Lesson 4: We create reality from our vibrational atmosphere.

Lesson 5: The path is being laid out for you.

Lesson 6: Stop beating yourself up for where you are.

Lesson 7: You get rid of doubt by not having it.

Lesson 7 – You get rid of doubt by not having it.

I did a little searching on the internet before I went to my first Abraham Hicks event just to see if there was any mainstream advice about how to prepare, what to expect, what to bring?!

Given that Abraham welcomes people to the stage to ask questions I found it natural that people recommended bringing your most pressing questions with you in case you’re called up.

The morning of the workshop as I waited in the lobby I reflected and journaled and came up with a couple of questions.  I had this innate sense that whatever questions I had would get answered even if I didn’t get picked.  The second question I came up with in my list was “Can you remind me of the process or deepen my understanding of how to move my energy from doubt to hope to belief to knowing?”

I had actually experienced the process with a big topic in my life (being a TED speaker) about two weeks prior and was able to move the energy to a place of knowing.  However, I feel there are other areas of my life I see doubt creep up frequently. I wanted to deepen, or strengthen, my understanding of the process so I could easily do the work with any topic that I felt doubtful about.

Teacher is Often a Student

Before I proceed, I’d like to openly admit this is an area of my life I’m actively working to get better at. I am not at a mastery level in this area yet. By presenting this lesson I am openly inviting your insights, comments (below) and experience to help our entire community grow and learn in this area.

If you have experience in the area of transforming doubt in your own life, by gosh I hope you’ll let us know!  Share in the comments below, ok?

Doubt Seems Like Worry

The other thing I want to point out is how intentional I am about moving doubt out of my life.  I’m excited because I can already feel myself tuning into my future self who knows I will eliminate doubt as a frequency from my vibration. Yipee!

If you’re like me you don’t enjoy the feelings of doubt or worry. I realized about 5-6 years ago that worry was pointless. It didn’t serve me, never did.  It was a real waste of time and so I became intentional about removing worry from my life.

Worrying is focusing on what you don’t want and giving energy to an outcome or future possibility that you don’t want to experience.  To me worry is like driving your car really fast around a tight turn and focusing the whole time on the guard rail you don’t want to hit.  If you want to pull out of the tight turn you’ve got to focus on the road ahead…where you WANT to go.  Don’t focus on where you want to AVOID.  You’ll hit the guard rail every time if you focus on the guard rail.

Worry is the same way.  If you focus on, talk about, spend time thinking about what you are afraid of happening, preparing for the worst case scenario and so forth you’ll just attract more of it into your life.  I eliminated worry from my vocabulary (literally I don’t speak the word in reference to myself any more) and the act of it from my life.

Now it’s time to do the same with doubt!

Before You Doubt

Like I said, I’m a student of removing doubt from my life.  In Abraham’s opening words at the workshop she said “You get rid of doubt before you get it”. I was kind of stunned when she said that in the first five minutes. I was like…“she’s already addressed my question!”

Then I sat there for a few minutes letting it sink it.  It sort of bounced off me so I knew it would be an evolution of understanding.  Abraham often says “words don’t teach…only life experience teaches”.  It appears I got the lesson, but I have yet to get the wisdom.  It’s coming…that’s my expectation.

I think I’m going to follow the same process I did with doubt as I did with worry.  Eliminate the word from my vocabulary as a start.  Something tells me there are other words that relate to doubt that I’ll want to reflect upon to see if they lead/indicate doubt so I know when I’m not allowing possibility in by creating doubt in my story.

If Not Doubt…Then What?

What comes to me as a question when I explore removing doubt from my life is “If I wasn’t doubting what would I be…or be doing?”

Hmm….

If I wasn’t introducing doubt I would:

  • Trust or have faith – interesting that this just popped into my head.  I like to tout that I have faith in the Universe, but it’s obvious by the fact that I have allowed doubt to creep in in the past that I was edging the Universe out.  I was not having faith – or recognizing – that the Universe was there for me.  All powerful, all knowing, always showering me with well being. Seems like turning up the faith and tuning into my knowing that Law of Attraction is always consistent and working would help that.
  • Believe in possibility – years ago I attended a workshop called the Landmark Forum and one of the underlying covenants of the Forum is “anything you want for yourself and your life is possible out of your participation in the Forum”.  That didn’t make a lot of sense in the beginning, but by the end of the session I had seen sooooo much evidence of this in the lives of people there and myself that I knew anything was possible.  “How can I shift to focus on possibility” or “where is the possibility in this if I believed anything was possible?” might be a good mantra for me to introduce when I catch doubt or see a little resistance to my desired outcome creep in.
  • Be allowing and thriving – when I think about releasing all doubt I find the idea so energizing, so full of delicious energy that it amazes me I haven’t seen this insight before.  I’m totally present in this moment to the virtual brakes I put on my life, my dreams, my momentum by having a thought in opposition to what I most want.  If I were to release the brakes so to speak, give up doubt, I would have my foot on the gas pedal heading in the direction of all that I desire.  Wow….that’s awesome! Imagine what your life would be like if anything you wanted, you believed you could realize it and it quickly came to you.  How excited would you be to feel like you were thriving as a deliberate creator of your life?

Before I close I want to share a video from Abraham about releasing doubt. It’s not one of the ones exactly where she talks about moving from doubt to hope to belief to knowing, but this one seems to focus in on releasing doubt specifically.  Hope you’ll enjoy it and remember to share your insights as comments below, please!

  1. Polly, this is a beautiful blog and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Would you like to hear an amazing story of how removing doubt can change things? I was born with a defective heart. When I was 15 mos. old I stopped breathing and was “legally dead” for 6 minutes. (Honestly, not sure what that means, but it freaked my parents.) I spent my early childhood in bed because my parents were scared of anything causing me stress. When I was 6 my parents were told that I was too small for surgery, but my heart couldn’t handle puberty. They said at best I might live to my early 20’s, but I would never be able to hold a job, have children, etc. My parents didn’t know about the Law of Attraction, but hearing that news upset my father so much that he said to my mother, “She might as well live life to the fullest. We’re not going to treat her like she is sick anymore.” His thinking was that being so careful and keeping me in bed and out of school obviously had saved me, so we were going for broke. The funny thing is that I was not made aware of any of this. My parents simply told me that I was well and going to school like the other kids. I was 5, so I simply believed my parents. I was absolutely confident that when they said I was healed, I was healed. Well, to make a long story short, I turn 50 this summer. I have two beautiful, biological children, a Ph.D., and a career I love. I never doubted my father…it was pure belief…faith of a child. It was only on my 40th birthday that my parents told me that I wasn’t healed according to the doctors. In fact, they said I was very sick…..hmmmmm! I am re-learning faith myself these days. Hard to believe when I think of that story that I could wrestle with doubt, but I have throughout my life and just now realizing the miracle of it all.

    1. Hi Lynne,

      Wow. Just wow. I LOVE your story! What an inspiration. The more I study Abraham Hicks, LOA and even Tony Robbins or other teachers of mindset training I believe further and further that it’s our perception, our story, that determines how we act and the way things turn out for us. Thank you for sharing you inspiring journey and I have new hope that I can be traveling around the world soon because that’s the story I tell myself – I’m a world traveler.

      Blessings,

      Polly
