...for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
THIS IS A TIME when people are worried about their
financial future. It's easy to feel afraid these days. Every major newspaper
and TV news show screams:
"Deep Recession", "Stocks Slide Downward", "The Market Plummets". As
I listen to the gloom and doom about the economy, I'm struck by the
power of media and mass consciousness to create a tornado of panic.
We can't help but wonder: Is the economy imploding? Are the doomsayers
right? Could I lose my house, my job, my savings, my lifestyle?
But fear and panic only delays recovery - both personally and professionally.
The power of your positive thinking and positive vision cannot be underestimated
in creating the energy that underlies prosperity. You are the key to
keeping the flow of abundance open, and restoring people's confidence
in the future. If you take "right actions" to keep your energy directed
toward conscious living and business practices, provide visionary leadership
to all you know and actively focus on the positive (instead of the negative)
aspects of everything, you can be a force for guiding yourself, your
family and the world at large back to experiencing balance, abundance
and prosperity. You are the person who can create and direct the united
flow of energy toward manifesting and consciously creating the future.
Here are 12 ways that you can help jump start our path back to greater
the concept of unlimited abundance in your personal
and professional life. Disgard the concept of competition. Competition
results from separation from the source of all wealth and is a construct
of "lack." Share the vision of abundance for everyone and celebrate
their success, as well as your own. Abundance for all drives the
worldwide economic engine. Take actions that show your confidence
in the fact that unlimited abundance is headed your way, and is
earmarked for your future... and the future of the world.
to engage in the fear that has possessed the news
media, Wall Street and the consumer. Especially, Wall Street is
driven by the energies of fear and euphoria. There is no balance
or reality on Wall Street. Keep your energies focused on recovery
and a vision of restored economic health - both within your sphere
of influence and around the world. Remember that economic cycles
are just that --and this one can turn around as quickly as it has
gone south. Point your compass due north. With more people focusing
on recovery than fear of recession, we can change course more quickly.
Remember the economy always comes back. In my mind, for instance,
I see people jumping up and down on Wall Street when the Dow hits
works both ways. We can allow our negative fears
and money woes to drag down the rest of the world, or we can jointly
uplift the entire globe. Let's lift the planet together.
Envision economic health on all continents, not just here in the
U.S. This is a not a time to get nationalistic and provincial. We
can find partners around the world who will help bring the U.S.
back into balance if we seek their success as well. See the world's
nations and people working together to generate abundance and where
you can, do your part to foster that.
with vigor and vision... and trust. Show your co-workers,
your friends and family that you believe in the bounty that this
world affords, and that you have faith in the Universe
and in the future to create the opportunities for a better life,
a better nation and a better world. Show that you have already embraced
that robust future. Spend money where it will create more opportunity.
conscious action to start prosperity flowing forth
in your immediate world and around the globe. (Become an 'actionary,'
as described in The Art of Conscious Creation, How You Can Transform
the World) Take a vacation and spend money that you can afford
and that will make someone else's day. Tip a little more than usual.
Give someone a job who needs it. Also commit your time to community,
charitable or international efforts to create a better, more abundant
life for others. That will boomerang back and help you and your
employees. Encourage your employees to do the same. This also serves
to get their focus off their own woes and onto the wavelengths of
giving and gratitude, energy that can produce positive results on
the Law of Attraction to work on your behalf. Make
sure that you are operating on a high frequency with positive focus,
acts and values - and make correction where it is not. If you are
operating on a high frequency, you are resonating with the Universe's
vibration and you should attract money, resources, and business
that are in alignment with you and your highest good.
the world as an opportunity, not a hostile environment.
Where there is strife, find new ways to create relief. Fill voids
that provide services, aid or goods to those who need it, or in
new markets. Think in terms of expansion, not contraction.
for positive change. Hold our leaders to the same
standards. Press them for positive action, not blame and finger
pointing. Support those who are taking positive action for change,
both economically and societally.
in a state of gratitude - for your talents, for
your co-workers, for your supporters, for your friends, for your
family, for your loved ones and for the relative health of your
company, for living in a nation where individual freedom provides
unlimited opportunity for growth, for the abundance that is yet
to materialize in the future. Show your gratitude, don't just feel
it forward. Do good deeds and make generous overtures
to others, simply asking the recipients to pay it forward. Create
the energy that will heal and repair, and plant positive healthy
seeds that will allow abundance to grow.
most importantly, hold the vision of abundance!
Create your personal and professional goals with a strong vision
of success. Put them in writing. Work with others to create visioning
moments or gatherings that invoke the exciting, emotionally exalting
feeling of success and abundance. See the market climbing again.
Visualize people being able to get out from under the debt of their
homes and mortgage companies helping people to reestablish home
ownership. See the price of staples and gas becoming affordable
again. Note how spending is once again flowing. See businesses thriving
instead of folding and jobs opening up. Visualize money circulating
responsibly. See the world filled with peace, prosperity, abundance
and economic opportunity for all. See the world's people cooperating
in uncountable ways that generate goodwill, fair trade, conscious
business, holistic value and prosperity. See your powerful place
in this vibrant, robust and satisfying planet.
