Get Spiritually Fit Review:
Ahhhh…another mind-blowing, life-changing book from Abraham that, of course, you read at the time you need it. It will find you when you are ready. They always do, right?
Quick tip: I recommend reading the book, The Law of Attraction, The Basics of the Teachings of Apbraham first, also in this series. It will help a lot with the basic concepts.
The Vortex book is about relationships. Not just with others, but also with yourself. This is so important to the premise of this book that I’m going to put it in all caps: YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOURSELF COMES FIRST BEFORE YOU CAN HAVE SUCCESSFUL RELATIONSHIPS WITH OTHERS. Abraham says “There is no relationship of greater importance to achieve than the relationship between you, in your physical body right here and now, and the Soul/Source/God from which you have come. If you tend to that relationship first and foremost, you will then, and only then, have the stable footing to proceed with other relationships.” For some reason, I figured some of this out at a rather young age, in my early 20s, for romantic relationships. I realized I could not be in a successful relationship unless I was taking care of myself and my needs first. No one else was going to do that for me. I feel grateful for having that wisdom, and it has served me well decades later. And, if you are not completely solid on this concept, this book will help you get there. I promise. However, this is only one aspect of this book. Relationships go way beyond just a partner or a spouse and this book covers a wide spectrum from relationships with your community, your family including your children or parents, and yourself.
Also, throughout the book, Abraham presents several “flawed premises” about relationships in our world and they are so direct, eye-opening, and helpful. And, some of them are COMPLETELY counter to how we live. But, then they make so much sense. Again, mind-blowing.
My results: This book came to me when I desperately needed help with two relationship aspects: relationships with others in my community and the relationships with my two children. And, what I learned from the book, is what I learned years ago…I need to focus on my relationship with myself first. This is the flawed premise that I learned from the book that has changed me:
“My group’s/our way of life is the only correct way, therefore all other ways must be stopped, because when I look at what I do not agree with, I feel bad.” Abraham goes on to say this flawed premise “is the basis of the majority of unhappiness on your planet.” YES!! YES!! YES!! This is me. I live this flawed premise EVERY.DAMN.DAY.. My kids do things constantly that I think is not what they should be doing. People in my community/country/world constantly do things and have opinions that I think are wrong. No wonder why I have such challenge. I can’t control others, nor is that the idea.
This book has really turned some of my core beliefs and identity, as a parent, as an advocate, community member, etc. on its head. I really was craving more after reading the parenting section of the book, but it was enough to impact me deeply and help me see how I can improve and have more harmonious relationships with my children. I also feel like I just scratched the surface of my struggles with getting so stressed about politics, and I know this book is my answer with helping me through these struggles. I will go back and re-read this book often.
