Trials begun on Universal Basic Income

A while back I wrote about the incredible benefits of providing a Universal Basic Income. Read the article here. At the time Switzerland had done a national Referendum on 6 issues and the Basic Income was one of them receiving a 20% vote to pursue. Not enough to do anything about it at the time but certainly a big enough vote for the rest of the world to see it as an idea whose time may be coming sooner than we think.

More recently Finland and and Ontario, Canada have begun real-time trials with groups living below the poverty line to test the results.

Finland

In Finland the group conducting the trial is Kela, the Social Insurance Institution of Finland which is a government department.  Their experiment will run over 2 years with 2000 random people selected and no interviews or results collected until the end of the trial period. They have said they are not collecting data on health and well being – which is odd to me because this would have a ripple effect on the Healthcare costs for government, domestic violence, general crime… all sorts of implications. Kela are more interested in the employment rates to see if those receiving the benefit can or will go back into the workforce.

It’s not a lot of money, I don’t know how it compares with living costs in the areas of where they live, but to have that backstop no matter whether or not they are working – it’s unconditional – will be interesting to see what behaviour patterns emerge.

They are also addressing how much the government will save by offering a social security benefit that is not means tested. Every government has massive man power costs in constantly testing to see whether a beneficiary matches the criteria to receive a benefit. In Australia they are Newstart (unemployment benefit), Child Support, Solo Parenting Benefit, Family Tax Benefit, Veterans, Sickness benefits, Pensioners, Study grants, Day Care allowances etc.  By giving one benefit that is the same amount for everyone – adding a bit more per dependent or child the beneficiary cares for – means all those extra government personnel would not be needed in constant assessment and testing. It simplifies the process of distributing the benefits.

More information is on the Kela website on Universal Basic Income here.

Ontario Canada

A couple of weeks ago the Premier of Ontario announced a similar “Basic Income Pilot” trial in Canada involving 4000 beneficiaries from 3 different specific geographical areas over a 3 year period. This is great way to see the community and neighbourhood benefits that might result.

It’s not as cut and dried as the Finnish version. If the beneficiaries are a couple they receive less than two individuals – that immediately adds a means test for the ever changing scene of relationships for a start = more government staffing costs. If the beneficiary does get work the benefit cuts 50c for every dollar earned so it’s more of a soft experiment.

One thing that is important though is that they will get the benefit whether or not they are looking for work, if they work a lot or a little.

In Australia I know our Unemployment benefit – maybe other benefits as well – have a test that you can receive it providing you can prove you’ve applied for something like 5 jobs a week. Major disaster! Not only is the government now farming out the job to independent agencies at great cost to follow up on this test every 2-4 weeks for EVERY beneficiary, but for the local businesses it becomes a huge headache. Every time they put out a job vacancy ad they have literally hundreds more job applicants sending in CVs that have no relevance to the job at all just to keep up with the test. Each business needs to send a receipt of application which becomes proof the beneficiary applied so I believe the amount of time, expense and frustration this must add to the process of recruitment will run up a cost for local business well beyond the benefits of means testing. For a business that has heavy recruitment needs this adds to their costs considerably.

Ontario has only just announced their trial which will start fairly soon. They are looking from a slightly different point of view, not just about bridging the gap for those who are hard to employ but also gauging the effects on health and education… a much more rounded view.

More information from the office of the Premier in Ontario about Basic Universal Income Pilot here.


So both countries are offering support but they’ve stated their goal is to get more people employed. They aren’t addressing what Yanis Varoufakis talked about in his interview. According to him Futurists around the world expect 40-50% of jobs will be overtaken by technology in the next 10-15 years. That puts the need to support “unemployed” in a very different light. No point making people more employable if we don’t actually need them to work to provide the community with the goods and services needed.

I know that’s a totally Socialist view but one worth thinking about. When Australia’s government makes those who are unemployed feel humiliated, embarrassed, ashamed and not worth spit, the effect on wellbeing and confidence of each individual costs money! It does. It adds to the Medicare bill. It boosts addiction numbers. In some cases causes violence and crime, accidents… there are many things they never seem to consider.

Here’s the interview with Yanis Varoufakis about the benefits of UBI here.

There are other countries such as Spain, Italy and the Netherlands considering starting their trials but are still scrapping over the conditions of receiving it which pretty much nullifies many of the positive effects.

There is some excellent research and reporting on the website http://basicincome.org if you want to keep up to date with progress around the world in more detail.


San Francisco

Financial Times reported last week that the techies in Silicon Valley are also mindful of how their technology replaces human jobs. An organisation called “Y Combinator” didn’t even bother for the government to give them the go-ahead. They privately collected the money, chose 100 people, started giving them $2000 a month and are gauging their own results. They plan to expand this to 1000 people.

In the article they also mention eBay founder Pierre Omidyar contributed to the foundation GiveDirectly which gives cash to 26,000 Kenyans due to being aware of geographical areas in the world which have less opportunity for manufacturing or new industry due to globalisation.

Lawrence Quill, a political-science professor at San Jose State University has said “a basic income transforms the working poor into entrepreneurs in the making…” which I also wrote in my last article (link at the top of this post). Once you remove the stress of survival, each person’s stress drops dramatically and their mind is free to bring in new innovative ideas for improvements, creativity and inventions.

Imagine a world where every one has their needs met and is free to create what comes naturally to them. That’s when we will see real progress!

Here’s the Financial Times article.


So it looks like the movement towards Universal Basic Income is finally kicking into action. Like all good movements there will be the trail blazers who discover and point out all the benefits nobody thought to consider, then the early adopters. Then everybody else will look like bloody losers if they don’t pull their finger out and implement it as quickly as possible.

Will that be America and Australia? Very possibly.

A Shift That Will Change Everything

Apple tax haven royal commissionBashar, channelled by Darryl Anka said a few months back that in the Fall (Autumn) of the Northern Hemisphere there “will be a moment where everything will change”. Ever since then, I continued to wonder what that would be. A major meteorological catastrophe? Wall St crash? Euro crash? What would affect all the world at once?

Of course, from a higher perspective these channelled entities often see a tipping point which, once reached, allows us to start moving in a very different direction relatively quickly. For us little perspectives down here on Earth that tipping point may seem pretty insignificant at the time and we only notice the different direction as it becomes apparent later.

So, I’ve been keeping my eye on the news, scooting over the propaganda, to dig out what that shift might be and this might be it.

In this article from yesterday http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-08-31/europe-delivers-warning-to-multinationals-as-apple-slugged-$20b/7801970 it is reported that the Royal Commission has demanded Apple Computers pay back taxes of $20 billion (reported today as being $14 billion but hey, whatever, it’s still a hell of a lot of tax). Further down the article you will see a simplified diagram of how Apple have so far got away with it. I’m very sure there are many other multi-nationals to use the same principal.

In the diagram it shows “Apple Sales International” was set up in Ireland to house all the sales income from Europe. The meagre funds Apple decided to keep there were taxed by the Irish government at 1 percent initially, then by 2013 it was down to a tax rate of 0.005 percent. The rest of the funds would be allocated to “Apple Head Office” which does not actually exist. It has no physical premises and no staff so is not taxed at all.

When Mercredan talks about the world currency being like the current of a river in this article, he says it is stopped by too many corporate damns along the way, there is barely a drop left for the populace to water their plants with downstream. Finding a way to remove some of those damns so the current can flow again is what we need to prevent a future worldwide revolution of starving people.

What could the Irish government do with $20 billion extra dollars? I assume it would be expected they would have to redistribute to the countries where the sales were actually made for a start. How many other big companies could be hit that way?

I read an article a while back about the Australian Tax Department pinpointing Media (Murdoch and Packer) and Mining (e.g. – Reinhart) being major players in allocating funds elsewhere as well. No matter what the Department Tax Auditors did the Corporate accountants would find a way to use the Tax Department’s own rules against them to make sure little or no tax is paid to the Australian Government. Curious no one would bother to close the loop holes for all these years, don’t you think?

Yet, it’s not just about each individual country cleaning its act up. Funds really can be shot around the world in the flash of a moment so to bring all governments together and make a global policy which means there are no places (e.g. – Panama, Nevada, Swiss banks or a Head Office like Apple’s which is nowhere) where funds can be allocated for tax avoidance would get the currents flowing a lot more abundantly. A big injection of funds back to any local government can be used to improve what we’ve all been jumping up and down about forever – hospitals, education and infrastructure.

Full transparency and accountability is where the world is heading. How fast we get there is dependant on how loud your protest is that Government and Court officials will be ousted if they hold back on making those decisions.


Here is a piece of the longer Bashar lecture mentioned above

Law of Attraction money from Meredith Murphy

How to Make Money through Law of Attraction Money – with Meredith Murphy

Business coaches Sydney Australia, Business coaching by KitegirlIs it time to get your money flowing? OK! I’ve mentioned Meredith Murphy’s work before. Here is the first of the series of three articles on how to make more money, the second article is linked at the bottom of that page and below is the third and final article which had a major ‘aha’ moment for me this morning.

These articles run through a high perspective of how money is energy – as is everything else – and how to get that energy moving in and out in a heightened speed and quantity.

There’s a sentence in the third to last paragraph below I’ve made bold which says:

You become more expansive in the material in this creativity.

I matched that in with an exercise I’d learnt from Channeler Francis Evans earlier in the week. In this exercise you go into a meditative space and imagine the borders of who you are – a bit like your aura I suppose – expanding out. I took it a step at a time with his guidance so I extended out from my body a bit, then out past the walls of my house, then out over the neighbourhood, then over the state, the country, until I encapsulated the whole world and the moon in a large sphere. The second time I did this I moved WAY out (good term “way out, man”) to include galaxies and all sorts of things I could see.

As part of the process Francis said to me “Imagine you now contain everyone and everything within that space.” That’s a curious feeling, to contain other people, cars, buildings, even planets. I was saying to him it brought up for me the theory of relativity. Was I expanding or was the Universe becoming smaller? The paradox of it is that either and both are true.

When you read through the article below it has some good basic Law of Attraction in it.

By the way, if you’ve struggled with getting Law of Attraction to work in your favour, look at doing my 30 day Law of Attraction program here. It’s a lesson around 3 minutes a day that gives you the steps towards understanding the rules of Law of Attraction better so you can use it to your advantage. http://annabelledrumm.avanoo.com

What are the key points?

  • Imagine what you’d like to have. If you’re out of practice in day dreaming and using your imagination, just make it a small desire.
  • Wake up all your senses to what it feels like to have that thing, do that thing, experience that thing, till you feel really good.

Below she encourages you to say “That’s now who I am.” This statement of intention is powerful and, providing you don’t cancel it out by acting and thinking and speaking the opposite of it, just stay in the present moment and go about your day, your intention is bound to come to fruition.

When you don’t feel good you are not in alignment with that bigger, more expanded version of yourself you became when you desired something more. Rather than beating yourself up for having the “wrong” thought, just notice it.

“Oops, this bad feeling inside (regardless of whether it is caused by not having what you desire or because you just spilled sauce on your top) shows me I am pretending to be that little version of me I was before. It’s tough trying to squeeze into the old me. It doesn’t feel good. Let me just take a moment to relax, empty my mind, breathe deep, smile and get back in touch with my heart so I can expand back out to who I now am. Then I can tune in to the present moment and continue on with my day without any thought of the past or any anxiety about not yet having what is on its way.”

This is contrary to all the other lessons we’ve ever had about making things happen. It’s the opposite of effort.

  • If you think you have to put in effort, your thoughts become reality and you will have to put in the effort.
  • If you think it is effortless, your thoughts become reality there too and all the prompts you’ll need of where to go, what to read, who to talk to… everything will lead you easily to what you desire.

OK, back to the article and comparing with Francis’ exercise. It’s good basic Law of Attraction that when you feel good, you are expanded. You are in alignment. You are making the path to what you desire as effortless as possible.

If you see yourself expand outwards and now contain all that is around you, you feel bigger, more loving, more supportive of all you “contain” and way more powerful. This was my experience in the exercise.

That state of mind is sooooo different from how I might normally run around my day with little things on my mind. It’s like becoming Mother Earth. As you expand out further you become some sort of god, I suppose. Like you care for and contain all these stars and galaxies.

Then looking back at that little body on the Planet Earth it’s laughable how small her desires are. So tiny and easy to achieve. What a great attitude. Now allow those thoughts to become reality.

Obviously that little body still has stuff to do during the day so we can’t sit out there in the whop whops being a god all the time. We need to keep coming back to the little body and getting on with life. But, when you hear so many of the channelers say “Remember who you are” which is just too mystical to me. I mean, come on, why don’t you just tell me instead of being so cryptic?

And yet, if they told us, we just wouldn’t believe it. We must expand outwards and see it to believe it.

Expanding out, containing so many people and material objects around me made me feel more connected to it all as well. This feeling of connection we all desire is right there to be had, just with a change of mindset. In that expanded state the flow of energy is increased. With the increased flow of energy moves everything around you to a higher vibe, so it doesn’t just benefit you, it benefits everything around you.

The increased energy flow of money moves just the same as everything else and you find you’re presented with more opportunities which you can choose to take or leave, nicer people to hang out with, good luck and synchronicity happening more often PLUS the ease of flowing money.

Sound fun?

Read the article and see what you think. If you have any questions, ask me on Facebook or Google +.

The Purpose of Money in the Material — Your New Experience of Money (Part 3 of 3)

Channeled by Meredith Murphy http://www.expectwonderful.com 

Hello, beautiful friends.

It is with great joy that we reconvene in this moment of shared focus and expansion. We are delighted that you are rethinking your relationship to imagining in response to our invitation yesterday, after having declared your desire to experience a clear state. This desire to experience a clear state beyond all previous knowing of money was very powerful in your imagining yesterday for many of you.

We marveled at how simple your imagining yesterday became more expansive.

Learning to imagine that which you have not yet experienced, and feeling tremendously good while you imagine it, is a great gift to yourself. We want you to really take that in. Learning to imagine that which you have not yet experienced, even briefly, and feeling tremendously good while you imagine it, is a great gift to yourself.

You will want this capacity to think of and see in your mind’s eye, and to feel throughout your body and your energy, that which you have not yet known.

You will want this ability to get stronger and stronger for each of you to recreate your experience of Earth.

That’s why we talked about all that yesterday. It is the power of your consciousness that you came here to use and play with.

Now we’re going to speak specifically on behalf of money, on behalf of money. Money, misunderstood money. Money, for starters, is simply a template of flow. It’s a structure that creates pathways and movement. It facilitates movement, much like a highway or a sidewalk or a path through the woods. Money creates a means of flowing energy.

Dear friends, remember energy, like everything, is love.

Money is a form of attention. It has the capacity to amplify that which it touches, like attention, or like alcohol, which you find sometimes amplifies a person’s mood or brings out an uninhibited version of them. Money is an amplifying aspect of creation that is active in your realm of focus.

When one encounters money they are amplified. This is a really exciting thing. You can demonstrate more fully the signature you are, and carry through expressing yourself creatively, more fully, when you have more money. Money amplifies your experience in that you often seek out and have access to what you consider to be in your world broader, more expanded, more refined, more high quality experiences that resonate with you. There are certain things in your world that you could very much see yourselves enjoying, which would very much feel right to you to experience. Money is the way in which you access many of these things.

Of course, someone could give them to you. This happens with many things. If you think about your lives there are many things that effortlessly are given to you. There are also many things that the way in which you have access to them in your world is through the flow of money. You find yourself bringing into your experience, and creating and building with money, things that are more elaborated. That’s the right word. They are an elaborated expression of you because everything you wish to experience is to fulfill your expression. Everything you wish to experience is because you sense it will fulfill your expression. Your drive is to elaborate. To elaborate is to develop more fully.

In the same way creation exists in many, many, many, many, many variations of distinctness which become what we experience as you and me. In your own particular focus you have the inclination, quite naturally, strongly and never going to go away, you have this inclination to elaborate yourself into variations of expression. This is a wonderful way to live as you, here and now. As you have ways to develop more fully your expression, you are shining in an expanded way, the distinct variation of love that you are energetically. More and more of the world will know this in a kind of unconscious way because their own wholeness will become more available because you represent that. As you expand and elaborate YOU within the collective field, it is fulfilling for everyone.

But those whom your presence really and wonderfully affirms, or echoes, or in a sense even might help fill out their inherent remembering of love, will be drawn into a direct relationship with what you elaborate, as you extend into the material through this more liberated self-expression. They will be abundantly blessed by this and drawn to the elaborations that you are creating.

Money being a pathway for energy to flow, and an amplifying energy, assists you in the material with this process of creativity and living an inspired life. You more and more flow expanded energy into your expression and this confident streaming of light into what you imagine. The exquisite joyful feeling lets you know that you are creating from a point of unity with all that you are and a point of alignment with what you want to experience. You are creating it confidently, knowing that as you decide it you can have it, and it’s happening, and that’s why you feel good when you’re imagining it.

This assists you with letting everything in. It lets everything in that is part of what you imagine. That includes money, connections, a sense of knowing about timing and action. All of this is able to come to you more clearly when you are open and in sync with the most expanded version of you. Each time you create a powerful movement in your field with your imagining, you must then remind yourself, in a sense, “Oh, that’s now who I am.”

We really want you to get this. It happens in consciousness. When you imagine something and decide you want it, that’s now who you are. Staying in sync with that, in a sense, in your perspective, it’s how you keep up with you. If you decide you want something and then you stand there and say, “But I don’t have it. But I don’t have it,” you’re out of sync with who you are. Because who you are is consciousness and your consciousness is caught up with all you’ve chosen.

You have to remind yourself not to look at appearances and create polarity between you and YOU, because of the material reflection in the world. Because there is a little bit of a time lag between who you are and what is reflected in the world before they come into sync. There’s just a little time lag. There’s nothing else happening. It’s just a time lag while things in the material happen. But when you look at the appearances and you think, “Oh, well I chose this and it’s not here,” then you’re out of alignment with it and that experience can’t connect to you. It’s very simple but it takes practice.

Remember, don’t look at the appearances, don’t create this polarity between you and YOU, and the material reflection. Just look at what is and enjoy it. Savor it because it’s on the way out. It’s in the process of changing. Allow yourself, too, to be alert to and recognize the indications that your creativity is coming forth more and more.

Of course, as we spoke of yesterday, the first indications are the feelings, the feelings of how every time you remember that you chose this and it’s coming. Oh my gosh. It’s coming. How exciting. The sensations you have, that is what truly defines the quality of your experience and your feelings. In this way, joy is where it’s at. Or some version of upliftment, enthusiasm, joy, peace, bliss, being thrilled. All these kind of uplifted feelings. These are the ideal ways to have a very flowing, uplifted experience.

The more joy that you’re feeling, the more and more you’re caught up with all that you have become because of your choices and your focus and imagining what you have not yet experienced. Let yourself enjoy from the very moment of imagining because the moment of imagining is the moment of creation.

Money in your lives, like many manifest experiences, is an indicator of alignment. In this case it’s an indicator of alignment with the money you wish to have or the abundance you wish to have. It’s telling you in your life how much you’re in sync with the fullest version of you. It’s showing you how much you’re letting in. Your financial state right now is telling you how much you’re letting in. It’s showing you how in sync you are with you.

There is not a single one of you hearing this message who have not created more financial abundance than they are yet identifying with as their experience and therefore letting in. Each of you has more to receive than you’ve let in yet. Meaning that you’ve not yet been able to let go of old ideas of who you are, and stay caught up with who you create yourself to be in consciousness, and not get too distracted by the reflection and the material, and begin to give that the defining powers of who you are.

We wanted to begin with a clear slate because we want you to know that this all takes a little practice. When you start with a clear slate and you choose, in addition to your imaginings, you choose some small things and you move in increments, you can build your confidence. You can learn to keep up with what you’re imagining.

Let’s take, for example, what if you imagine living in a house on a lake. That’s your vision, that you’re enjoying imagining, that you’re living in a house on a lake. Then you allow yourself to say, “Oh, that’s where my life is going. I’ve chosen to live in a house on a lake.” You begin to know that you are moving to a house on a lake. You might begin to say to yourself, “I wonder where that’s going to be. I wonder how long before it’s going to happen. Is there anything I want to do here before I leave? What else do I want about this lake? I’d really like there to be a path where I could walk in the woods and look at the lake from above. I wonder where that is.”

You can start to play with this with a confident sense that you’re kind of teasing out into the material that which you wish to experience. You can allow yourself, when you’re sitting at your dentist’s office in the morning waiting for your appointment flipping through a magazine, when you see a picture of a lake in the magazine, you can realize that you bumped into that because you’re drawing those kinds of experiences to you. The picture is one way they’re showing up. You can look at the picture and say, “Oh, yes. That’s my life. That’s my life. That’s what I’ve chosen. That’s what’s now coming forth for me.”

My friends, you may think a lot of this is very separate from love and spirituality. In fact, by you living your life in that house on a lake, if that’s what gets your being soaring and thrills you, by allowing that choice to be in your focus and creating momentum with it by elaborating it and feeling it in an exhilarating way as you imagine it, and beginning to allow yourself to revise your sense of what your life is because you’ve made that choice and you’re now coming into realization, you elaborate the material expression of you by doing all this. This elaboration, this amplification of you, is not only exhilarating for you because you expand. You become more expansive in the material in this creativity. It is exhilarating because you become, therefore, more fully expressed.

It also creates an energy field on the planet of you which is enlarged and more available. So the distinct arrangement, the harmonics of love that you are, is therefore also amplified and available to everything that is. But in particular to everyone with whom you are in shared focus on this planet.

You see, money is a way for energy to flow into the material, and for you to express and experience greater fulfillment. It’s a beautiful creation to assist you with elaborating and expanding within the material in this focus in form. Bless it. Bless your desire for it — this desire is innate within you. Because it’s innately linked as an amplifying principle and a pathway, with your inherent desire to elaborate in the material the essence of love that you are.

I am Archangel Michael

Money: The Great Dining Table of Life

money law of attractionHow do you view money in your life? Do you understand that your relationship to money is what determines how much of it comes in? It has little to do with what anyone else thinks of it unless you choose to have the same sort of relationship to money as the others around you. How can you change that relationship in order to get a different result?

I was reading this lovely article yesterday by channeller Meredith Murphy. Titled “Part 1 of 3” it’s clearly just the pre-cursor to a bigger lesson which will come from this Author later. Just setting the scene as it were.

http://www.expectwonderfulblog.com/2015/05/new-relationship-to-money-part-1.html

There are some lovely affirmations in there which will work a whole lot better than if you are struggling with finances and have tried to plaster a grin on your face saying “I’m rich in my head, really!” which just makes you feel like a fraud.

LAW OF ATTRACTION TIP: Whenever you’re in a negative state of mind and the joyous positive vibes feel too far away – simply focus on reducing the negative emotions back to neutral. That will bring you instant relief and head you in the right direction.

Here were some of her examples which I prefer to change to a self empowerment point of view, for it’s not up to an angel or anyone else to change me. It’s up to me to change me:

  • I AM willing to wipe the slate clean of all I know about money.
  • I AM ready for a fresh start.
  • I AM ready to meet money directly and re-imagine my relationship based on what money really is.
  • I AM going to understand this directly from within because money, like all energy forms, has an originating structure.

Often I get the best access to multi-dimensional thinking just as I’m waking up. It’s that twilight zone you go to when under hypnotherapy or deep meditation.

This morning, as I was waking, I came back around to thinking about this article. If I am to understand the energy of money and it’s originating structure; and it is essentially made of the same stuff as me, what would that look like?

I immediately saw my first image. Me standing side on. The wind blows paper notes of money up against the side of my body. Because we are made of the same stuff it starts to absorb into my body.

“That’s different” I thought “Let’s see where this goes.”

More and more money blew up against my side and absorbed until my body was full. I didn’t intend to get any fatter so, from there forward, as money blew up and absorbed, notes started to “leak” out the other side which I could give to someone or just let it fly away on the breeze.

Interesting, huh? So, as Gluttony stores more than necessary and stops the flow of energy, if we allow the resources to fill us up, then only once we have a full pot do we let it overflow to others. That’s what keeps us fully satisfied.

Satisfaction. That was the word that brought up the next image.

I saw myself sitting at a long narrow outdoor Italian table with a large group of diners. All of them happy, loving family and friends.

The person at the end of the table was serving up. They would put food on the plate and pass it to the right. I was starving but passed the plate on to the next person once it got to me.

Ah! Now I get it! How many of us in life have things passed to us and consider it virtuous to continue passing it to someone else even though we are starving? What if the table never ends?

How many times have you passed on or brushed away offers of help, money, compliments, great opportunities, work, comfort, useful advice and even true love?

We are brought up to believe it is admirable to be tough and do it all on our own. To carry other people. To carry all our burdens ourselves. To carry other people’s burdens.

GIVE IT UP

Connecting is what this World Shift of Consciousness is about.

You may be ready for a big lesson: Discover you are worthy, just as worthy as anyone else, because you are a member of the same species and you CAN accept what is offered to you.

As the plates are passed down the table, if you are starving, put the plate in front of yourself, say thank you, EAT your fill, then pass the next plate down. If someone complains, hand them the next plate and tell them to eat.

You are not doing anything more than feeding an empty stomach. You are not stopping the flow of plates. You will in fact have more energy and willingness to pass plates for even longer afterwards once you are nourished.

So take a look today at where you are forgetting to eat. In what department of life are you hungry? Love? Money? Friends? Social life? Work? A handy man for a job around the house?

(Hungry for a handy man? Wow, where is this article going?…)

Identify where it is and then use those affirmations above.

“I AM willing to let go of all I believed about —”

“I AM willing to be shown a new way to relate to it. Willing to see how much there is of it in the world.”

“I AM willing to accept it when it is offered, set it down in front of me and say Thank You.”

You are worthy of nourishment.

Always remember that.

Financial Freedom

drop it meditation techniqueLaw of Attraction followers often find themselves brilliant at attracting the little things in life but what’s the secret to drawing in the big stuff? Here’s a clue.

I was talking with a client about Financial Freedom. The goal could have been to simply have a million dollars but, what does it mean to be a Millionaire? It means you can buy stuff, you can travel more, all the material things in life become more available. Millionaire clients I’ve had tell me that just doesn’t cut the mustard in the end. It’s a short term thrill. It gets boring after a while collecting more stuff.

As we talked about Financial Freedom being the ideal I asked what the client saw that to mean. They found it very hard to put their finger on it. Very hard to describe it literally.

There is no benchmark because each person’s version of Financial Freedom is different. If you’re a dude who loves to surf, live in a small house on the coast, have BBQs and smoke weed you don’t need a lot of money to be financially free. If you love castles and get off on owning the latest Ferrari each year you’re going to need more. Most of us are in between the two.

I got my client pondering it a bit further and thought I’d do the exercise myself. What would it be like to BE financially free? Not just HAVE stuff which equates to being rich, but to BE it?

This is the Law of Attraction secret many people seem to forget. They focus on the stuff they want to HAVE but never raise their own vibration to the kind of person they would BE.

Look at the BE DO HAVE exercise to understand this better.

Here’s my version.

I didn’t think too hard. Made no judgement. Just tuned into that feeling of BEING a person with Financial Freedom. What came out on paper was a mixture of being it and having it without adding any dollar value.

I wake up in the morning knowing…

  • all the bills are paid
  • there’s plenty to pay any new bills I clock up today and for the rest of my life
  • I don’t have to work
  • I am free to do what inspires me: play, explore, dance, sing, work on projects that take my fancy
  • My wardrobe has options for all occasions and I love every piece
  • My children are well provided for in terms of clothes, tech gear, school and hobbies
  • We like to plan at least 2 international trips a year in the school holidays
  • I can go to the opera/theatre/arena when I wish
  • I can get expert personal tuition on anything I want to learn
  • I feel confident, always at ease
  • I have no stress and live in the present moment.
  • I have cleaners, gardeners, accountants, admin support, a masseuse on call, top beautician… whatever people I need
  • I love paying people extra for their services when they do a good job (THIS is when I felt my vibe really started to raise.)
  • I like to fund other people’s projects that are aligned with my values
  • I like to give expensive presents
  • If I feel like eating out at a silver service restaurant I just go. I’ll leave a big tip in appreciation.
  • I like to challenge myself more physically now
  • I go to bed knowing all is well and will be fine tomorrow too
  • I can handle anything

Hmm. An interesting list. Not anything you need to copy, of course. Find your own list on what it is to have Financial Freedom. What would you BE if you were?

As you run this exercise and put yourself in the shoes of someone who is financially free, you will definitely feel different. That yummy, warm change you feel is your vibration raising.

THIS is the key to Law of Attraction. By raising your vibe on a regular basis and spending as many seconds of the day tuned to that higher level, you attract in all that you’ve focussed on.

If you run the exercise, then immediately fall back into telling the story in your head or to other people about how limited money is and you can’t pay for this or that; you REPEL the good stuff because your point of attraction shifts to more lack.

The longer you spend dwelling on what you lack, the more lack you will attract in the near future.

Do we want that? NO!

So spend more time BEING what you intend for yourself. That doesn’t mean spending every dollar in the bank account. It means keeping your mindset in one that is prosperous. Finding gratitude for all that you already have and how good it’s going to feel when financial freedom is yours.

Use this Present Moment exercise to help you with that.
