The Real Way to Have More Money

by Delia Nessim

These days a lot of people are talking about not having enough money. The more we hear that the economy is bad, the more fear it evokes. People become afraid to spend their money. A collective consciousness builds - one of fear, lack, and even panic. Energy therapies teach that energy attracts physical evidence with a similar vibration. According to this view, people who worry about their lack of money may seem to have more experiences to worry about. Then they feel even more justified in worrying. So what’s the solution? The solution is to change your mind. Change your thoughts. Change your consciousness. That may seem difficult, because it involves changing your current behavior patterns, but it’s not as hard as you think.

The first step in changing any behavior is to pay attention. We can all become more aware of our words, the messages of people around us, and the media we watch. When we are regularly exposed to messages of lack, we can come to believe them and then instinctively repeat them. Do your thoughts and the words you speak contribute to a dialogue of scarcity and fear? I invite you to take a break from these thoughts. Sometimes it IS as simple as saying “Stop!” when the worries arise. After you have some practice noticing and stopping those thoughts, it’s time to play “make believe.”  

Create a vision of what you would like your financial life to look like and feel like. If your imagination is failing you, try to think of a time that you felt rich. Maybe it was when you were 8 years old and your grandmom sent you $10 in the mail. You lit up thinking about all the candy you could buy for ten bucks! GO there… GO there every day… GO there many times a day. The details of how it’s going to happen or how much money you need or want doesn't matter. All that matters is how rich you feel. It’s really fun. There is no harm in pretending. 

Of course, the more you practice feeling rich, the more real it feels. Your energetic vibration begins to inform the world that you are rich, and it’s time for the universe to provide evidence to support that vibration. Within a day or two, you will find money in unexpected places or opportunities will come your way. Don’t discount anything. It might start with finding a dime in the street. Accept it all with gratitude. Say “yes” and “thank you” for everything that comes, big or small. Do not resist it by insisting it look a certain way (e.g., that you get a raise at work, sell more products or services, or win the lottery). Let the universe work out the details. Your job is to pretend, enjoy, and accept with love and gratitude. When you shift your consciousness, you will know it. You will intuitively sense that your world is about to change for the better.

A Delicate Truth by Dean Solon

"what the gods and all reasonable human beings fought in vain wasn't stupidity at all.  it was sheer, wanton, bloody indifference to anybody's interests but their own."  (john le carre, in his most recent novel "A Delicate Truth")

so much trouble in the world.  syria, ukraine, israel and palestinians, iraq, africa.  i hear larry kane saying on the radio this is certainly not the summer of love.

our world a science fiction world, where a human being on the ground fires a surface-to-air missile that hits its target, a jet 33,000 feet above the earth, and destroys the plane and ends the lives of nearly 300 sentient beings.  what are to make of ourselves?  is this the way we want it to be?
a question that reverberates inside me:  "is this the way you, i, want it to be?"

the.Buddha, Jesus, the hebrew prophets, Meher Baba, Krishna, Muhammed, the embodiers of Mother energy wisdom, are saying:  "We care."

and we care.  and so we are to care, about all living beings with whom we are sharing an experience of residing and abiding on the earth-plane.  our hearts are to be open, wide-open, to and with the cries of sorrow and suffering, here, now.  there is no need for explanation, for discussion.  is simply true---if we are not caring, if we are not bleeding tears too, we are not awake, we are not fully alive.

wisdom and compassion are the heart and whole of our being present, of our being witnesses and participants.

wisdomcompassiom the core and crux of all of it, of all of this.
