IN THIS ISSUE: This Month's Theme -
When you have your health, you are well on your way to having everything.
If you are enjoying vibrant health, congratulations, stop reading right
now and move onto the next article. If you are not as healthy as you would
like to be, consider taking the "magic cure". It can be used for any affliction
- in combination with other medical treatments of course - to help improve
Before getting to it, ask yourself if you have had any or all of
the following "unhealthy" thoughts about your own "health challenges"
indicating a degree of "poverty consciousness" related to health.
"My body has a mind of it's own: I have no control over it."
"I am one of those people who get whatever illness is going around."
"Every cold and flu season, I get colds and flu like clockwork."
"I have no energy: I need coffee, caffeine, etc to keep going."
"It is normal to get sick at least a few times a year."
So here is the magic cure... stop thinking these thoughts and
replace them with more empowering ones. They certainly are NOT helping
you. They certainly are harming you by serving to keep your poverty of
health "alive and well". If you think that your unhealthy thoughts cannot
cause real health problems, consider this:
From John Stossel of ABC News 20/20: "For fifteen years, my life
revolved around my back. I took time off from work, conducted meetings
lying on the floor, and slept with ice bags. Could this be psychogenic
(induced by thoughts)? I had considered Dr. Sarno's idea preposterous,
but ten years ago I was talked into seeing him. I haven't had back problems
since. If Dr. Sarno is right about other psychogenic pain, America is
wasting billions of dollars..."
Dr. John E. Sarno is the author of "Mind Over Back Pain". He has
helped thousands of people overcome back problems without drugs or dangerous
surgery. Sarno discovered that chronic worry, anger, and repressed emotions
trigger muscle spasms as a mental defense mechanism. Literally when the
mind cannot take anymore stress it simply dumps it into the body as pain.
The pain will cause the person to "slow down" which is what the body and
mind need to cope with the stress. Over time, people will inadvertantly
"train themselves" to experience pain when they really need stress relief.
Stress relief involves breaking the habit of "unhealthy" thinking
that is the root cause of the pain. When the pain is felt, the individual
stops what they are doing and takes some time to breathe deeply and release
the stress from body and mind. They "think away" the pain by focusing on
positive, empowering thoughts.
For example, healthy thoughts replacing the unhealthy ones above:
"My body, mind, and emotions are in harmony: I have vibrant health."
"I am one of those people who is immune to whatever goes around."
"Every cold and flu season, I am always well and healthy."
"I have abundant energy flowing through me at all times."
"I am healthy all the time: I thank my body for this daily."
When it comes to health, those who think unhealthy thoughts will
only get poorer. Poorer in lack of energy and increased incidents of illness.
The good news about the "magic cure" is it is free. You are thinking about
your health anyway... so stop thinking about the lack of health in
your life... and start attracting vibrant health by thinking it, feeling it,
willing it, and loving it into your life. All you have to lose are problems.
You may not have heard the term "Efficient Emptying Syndrome" but you have
probably seen people "afflicted" by it's symptoms.
* Never able to get ahead money-wise, no matter how hard they try
* Unexpected windfalls getting wiped out by unexpected expenses
* Reeling from constant financial problems emptying their savings
* Constantly getting "ripped off" or "scammed" by the unscrupulous
* Always broke: having to "mooch" off of relatives, friends, etc
* Always broke: an open wallet to "helpless" relative, friends, etc
The "Efficient Emptying Syndrome" serves to keep it's "victims"
constantly living on the edge of financial disaster. In essence, it is an
indicator of extreme poverty consciousness.
The root cause of poverty consciousness is always lack of love.
Often you have carried over these "energy pathways" from past lives into
the present to lead you to resolve the underlying issues.
If you are honest
with yourself, you deal with your money the same way you deal with yourself
and others. When you are uncomfortable financially, you are actually acting out
feelings of being inadequate, undeserving, deprived, ashamed, abandoned,
* Inadequate - Never Ahead:
At any level of income, if you never
feel that you are good enough, you will never get ahead. Your feelings
of being inadequate get reflected in the lack of outward supply. When
you truly start feeling good enough on the inside, the outward signs of
abundance will start flowing to you more easily.
* Undeserving - Windfalls Wipe Out:
Everyone has heard the stories
of the lottery winners blowing fortunes that could have lasted for a lifetime...
in a matter of months or years. This happens because on the inside they
do not feel deserving of their good fortune and so they unconsciously act
to "get rid of it". Until you truly feel deserving of what you get, you
will wipe out windfalls every time.
* Deprived - Reeling Feeling:
If you find yourself getting back
into financial trouble immediately after having gotten out of it, you have
the "reeling feeling". Those who end up creating multiple dramas around
money are those do not have enough love, attention and emotional support
in their lives. Those who are deprived of this nurturing often spend money
on themselves to feel the love they are not getting from others. As long
as you feel deprived and act it out through money, you will reel from one
financial crisis to another.
* Ashamed - "Scammed":
There is absolutely an element of financial
karma involved in "scams" and "rip offs" as in "I stole from you last life,
now you are stealing from me!" And yet, of all karma, that of the financial
kind is the most easily forgiven. Most often, those who are scammed are
being forced to confront their own feelings of shame. Shame - feeling stupid,
used, cheated - is a desperate cry for love and help... in that, you need to
love and help yourself. Until you confront what you are ashamed of, you will
be "ripped off".
* Abandoned - "Moocher":
Moochers keep connected to family and
friends by owing them money. People are not likely to forget you if you
owe them money. In fact, they are likely to chase you down to get the money
back... so this way you stay connected to them without having to "do the
work" of being in a relationship. Until you can learn love yourself and
others more, a moocher you will remain.
* Unworthy - "Open Wallet":
Open Wallets are usually the ones who
supply the moochers. They open their wallets both to stay connected to
others through a financial relationship and to "get rid of" money which
they are uncomfortable with anyway. If you cannot keep some money for
yourself, deep down it is because you do not feel worthy enough to receive
it. As in "why do I have so much?" The answer is you are a child
of God and deserve to have as much as you want. Everyone deserves this
and will get it if only they feel worthy.
The bottom line is that if you are a victim of the "Efficient
Emptying Syndrome", you are in pain that money cannot buy your way out of.
Deal with the emotions underlying the money problems and your financial
situation is bound to improve... guaranteed!
From the Emailbag: "My friends say I am a bum magnet. I do seem to attract
the wrong kind of man. Every time a guy is interested in me, he ends up
being married, a control freak, an ex-con, a sports fanatic, etc. I still
end up going out with these guys only to have a rotten time. Why can't I
attract the kind of man I want?"
Everyone knows a "bum magnet" or has served a turn attracting bums.
Without a doubt, being a bum magnet is a sign of major bad karma with members
of the opposite sex. For sure it is another sign of poverty consciousness:
depriving yourself of what you deserve.
Just as your unhealthy thoughts
deprive you of enjoying better health and your disempowering beliefs about
money block your abundance, so do beliefs about the "way men/women are"
keep you from attracting the loving romantic relationship that you deserve.
Yet if you are reading these words, it is highly likely that you
have earned the right to transcend your relationship karma. The first step
is to get rid of the layers of disempowering thoughts you have about romantic
partners that are attracting the bums like flies.
You can find out what you really believe about relationships by
completing the following sentences. Before you start, there is a catch...
You must complete the following sentences as quickly as you can - without
thinking - while giving different answers every time.
You have to do it for 5 minutes... and it is preferable if you can
speak your answers into a tape recorder. That way you can playback what
your subconscious mind is telling you about your true, deep seated beliefs
about your relationship with loving partners.
"All men/women are..."
"All men/women make me feel..."
"I always fail at relationships because..."
"Having a romantic partner makes me feel..."
"To keep a romantic partner I would have to..."
"To succeed at relationships, I would have to..."
"Having a romantic partner will change my life..."
"My mother/father is like/unlike who I want to attract..."
If you are honest with yourself and put a sincere effort into doing
this exercise, the answers are very likely to surprise you. What will not
surprise you is how you have manifested the relationships that you have based
on your true beliefs. For only when you know what your true beliefs are...
can you release what no longer serves you and manifest the life that you
If you want to have more love in your life, you must first let it
in. To do that, you need to eliminate the beliefs that are keeping the door
on your happiness slammed shut. Until you do, your unconscious beliefs about
romantic partners will continue to bring you the same as those you have
consistently attracted in the past.
can help you to restructure your beliefs around relationships so that you
can attract the romantic partner that you desire... if only you believe
"Get busy living or get busy dying" (Shawshank Redemption): that is what
life is about. At every moment, we are choosing life or death. We
choose life when we honor ourselves by making empowering choices, by having
life affirming emotions, and by seeing ourselves "positively". When we do
not, we are - in essence - choosing death. By our choices in life, we can
be our own best friend or worst enemy.
Whether we are friend or enemy to ourself, it all begins inside
with the beliefs and thoughts we choose by how we consistently spend our
attention. The goal of the exercise on this month's featured page is to
determine if you need a "revolution from within" to improve your life. By
"Running the Gauntlet" of common experiences and emotions, you will see
how you "measure up" to life's challenges.
The exercise works based on the assumption that you cannot choose
life-love and death-fear at the same time. To make better choices, you
need to know where you are right now. If you are filled with negative
thoughts and beliefs, you need to know that so that you can unlearn them.
For only when you can think and act from a place of love, can you be at
peace with yourself, with others, and with God.
After "Running the Gauntlet" of your beliefs, you will understand
why you are where you are in life. If you do the exercise as instructed,
the unconscious part of your mind, that always tells you the truth about
yourself, will show you where you have gone astray in your beliefs. Remember:
that for things to change, you must change.
To effect lasting change, you must change your beliefs for they
create your reality. In these remarkable words of Mark Bedillion, "It
is your thinking that will change your life. Feelings come from thoughts.
Start today to change your negative beliefs. You deserve it. Be good to
yourself. Start being your best friend and stop being your worst enemy.
Remember: Love makes all things new and the truth will set you free".
Are you ready for the truth?
From 1997 New York Times: "Anyone who scoffs at the value of 62
cents should talk to Muhammad Yunus. In 1976, the Bangladeshi economics
professor tried an experiment. From his pocket, he lent the equivalent of
$26 to a group of 42 workers. With that 62 cents per person, they bought
the materials for a day's work weaving chairs or making pots. At the end
of their first day as independent business owners, they sold their work
and soon paid back loan."
"Thus began the microcredit movement... the world's
hot idea for reducing poverty... The first microcredit program was the
Grameen Bank, founded by Mr Yunus. Grameen requires its borrowers to organize
themselves into groups of five. All are cut off if one borrower defaults.
The borrowers meet every week to make loan payments at commercial interest
rates and critique one another's business plans."
"People who repay small and loans on time can take ones. Grameen,
which now makes a profit, claims a higher repayment rate than traditional
banks. One-third of its two million borrowers have crossed the poverty line
and another third are close."
Poverty is a state of mind. If people are not prosperous in their
thoughts and emotions, their lives will reflect their lack of self esteem.
Those who have a poor self image will deny themselves life's pleasures because
they think that they are undeserving.
The true power of Micro-Loans is that they give those who repay them
a tangible reason to believe they deserve their prosperity... because they
have earned it by paying off their loan. Prosperity must come from in the
inside out... if it is to last.
The long history of developing nations show
time and time again that attempts to impose prosperity from the outside...
most often fails because it is in conflict with the inner beliefs held by
the masses. Change those beliefs... and poverty can become a
thing of the past.
For the whole story see "Micro Loans for the Very Poor", The New
York Times (February 16, 1997)
The movie "Angela's Ashes" was based on Frank McCourt's best selling
autobiography. It tells the story of his family after they make the
decision to move from urban poverty in America to even worse rural poverty
in Ireland. It is a story told a thousand times. The father who cannot
get work, tries to escape into a bottle of alcohol, cannot do it, and
abandons his family. The mother, who will not work, gets her children
to do it for her until she drifts into prostitution.
Ironically, it is really the tale of the ignobility of poverty.
For young Frank gets work in the same town where his father could find
none. The difference between them is that Frank will take a job no one
else will touch... being the collection agent for the local money lender.
Frank helps to write and deliver her threatening letters to debtors, including
his own mother. He sees them read the letter, be momentarily terrified
about it, and then go on complaining about their miserable lives without
doing anything to change them.
Frank even becomes indignant when the landlord collects sexual
favors from his mother to pay the rent. Of course, Angela could have
gotten a job once her children were grown but she is lazy and prefers a
few hours of night work to a week of honest labor. Frank believes Angela
should be pitied but... she really does get what she deserves.
Similarly, when the local money lender dies suddenly, everyone
rejoices because her death has cancelled their debts. Frank joins them
and even gleefully tosses her ledger into the river.
Of course, he does not look at the myriad of things the money
lender helped the local people to accomplish. As in one woman getting the
emergency surgery needed to save her husband's life. As in one father
sending his son to a better university. As in one merchant rebuilding a
business after a fire. That the lender wanted to be paid for helping
others... that was her sin and everyone, including Frank, thought she
got what she deserved: to die alone and unloved.
That was because, whatever other story Frank McCourt was telling,
his real message was that poverty is somehow ennobling and that wealth
in any form - whether in relics of the rich Catholic Church, it's fat
priests and nuns, or in the comfort of the money lender's home - was
ignoble. Of course, none of the actions poverty drove his parents to
take was noble. Nor was the fact that McCourt turned his back on his
family and left them to return to America as soon as he could.
seems ignobility like beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder.
