So the buzz from the latest Abraham-Hicks workshop in San Antonio is more talk of discs and pipes. I think this one was webcast, so more of the online people got to hear about the grid discs and the laying of new pipes than just the hangers on reading notes from the Cancún event. I guess pipes are a metaphor for the state of a person's vibration. Esther is telling people they can "lay new pipes" rather than bother cleaning out the ones they've already laid. This kind of teaching has appeal; how nice to know that even though my life reflects some gunked up pipes, all I have to do is __________ and I can have brand new pipes. Sorry, I haven't looked closely enough to find out what it is that one has to do to get those new pipes. Get happy, presumably. Some sage advice: "Lay a few new pipes and your sensation of worthiness and blessedness and things working out the way that they should will multiply". Clear as mud, eh?
With grid-building and pipe-laying, one could almost get the idea that they were DOING something when they actually aren't. I know when I was an Aber, I thought I was being productive when I was doing an Abraham-Hicks process, or watching a good-feeling movie. What a joke! The only thing I was doing was wasting my life! It's Abraham quotes like this that give people the wrong idea: "You can lay new pipes at any time and as often as you like. As you tell your story on any topic, ask yourself how do my pipes feel in the telling of this story? Do they feel closed, constricted, and pinching off from the good feelings that I want for myself? Or do these pipes feel open and free-flowing? Is this a story of ease and flow?" Laying pipes (in this context) is not a real thing! Neither is building grids, for that matter!
As for the discs, I'm not sure if the disc is supposed to represent a vibrational place or a vibrational thing. I've got a few quotes regarding discs:
Just keep picking a disc and being very clear about it
People who are not on good feeling discs gravitate to the horror stories
While you may choose the disc that you get on, you're not choosing the disc that they get on
It doesn't matter if you don't like the disc you are spinning, it gives you information about what you want
The way discs have been spoken of from workshop to workshop isn't consistent. Has anyone else even noticed this?
