Soon enough on this blog I’ll be getting into all the practical steps of building wealth: creating a budget, saving your emergency fund, investing, and more. But in the beginning, there’s a step that I believe you need to take before all others. This step was almost single-handedly responsible for me finally starting to have… Read More »
A lot of times as spiritual people, we create this divide between spirituality and mundane life. We want to be special, to do our own thing, to not be confined to the daily grind of the 9-5.
So we meditate, we go to workshops, we listen to channeled messages from other-worldly beings. We do what we can to make life feel mysterious—even magical. Perhaps we even start up a business sharing our insights with others, or trying to help others in some way.
And hey, it works sometimes. There are lots of successful spiritual business owners doing what they love and making their spirituality their life.
But there are even more who fail. There are countless people trying and failing to make something meaningful (to them) of their lives, and feeling like they have failed. Mundane life reasserts its hold.
I always hated the Zen saying that goes: “Before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood, carry water.” I’d prefer it say something more like, “After enlightenment, go on wonderful, magical adventures and bring your knowledge to the world.” The actual saying always just seemed pointless and depressing.
I hated it, once upon a time. I no longer do, because I saw something vital to my own peace: mundane life is the totality. It’s the whole point. It’s wonderfully spiritual and special and purposeful, and I’ve found a way to fall in love with just normal, ordinary, day-to-day life. I’ve found a way to be satisfied with chopping wood and carrying water, and not need anything more than that.… Read More »
In life, we’re used to being roughly at the same level we’ve always been. We work pretty much the same kind of job, get about the same amount of salary, have roughly the same net worth, have about the same kind of friends, etc.
I’ve previously called this your point of homeostasis, colloquially referred to as your “comfort zone”.
Essentially, it’s the point in life at which you are comfortable. It’s the identity you hold, as it applies to various aspects of your life.
In short, it’s your vibration, on these various aspects, and in general.
But what if you had vibrational mobility? What if you could change your vibration to set it at any point you chose, and by doing so, could very quickly get different results in life?
What if the only thing differentiating you from the millionaires, successful business owners, thriving employees, fulfilled creatives, and so forth, was where you chose to set your vibration?… Read More »
Many people have the belief that money is hard to make. They sometimes even believe that “the rich” are actively trying to prevent them from having more money themselves.
I cannot overemphasize how harmful this belief is to your pursuit of greater abundance. This set of beliefs is the single largest obstacle to you opening to greater wealth in your life.
And the thing is, it isn’t even true. Yes certainly, if you look for it, you can probably find some evidence, but that’s just the law of attraction at work: whatever you believe and look for in your world, you will find.
What if I told you that money was rather easy to make more of? What if I told you that the economy was actually built in such a way as to encourage amassing wealth?
You likely wouldn’t believe me. But, I’ll ask you to hang on for the ride and give me a chance to explain myself.
And, be forewarned that some of the things I’ll share in this post won’t be comfortable. It’ll force you to look at your current financial situation and realize that the responsibility lies squarely on your shoulders for how successful, or not, you have been—how wealthy, or not, you are. You can no longer blame “the rich”, businesses, the government, etc.
This isn’t blame, necessarily. Many—probably even most—people are clueless when it comes to these things. They don’t know about the financial principles of building wealth, and they also don’t know how to increase that growth through the law of attraction.
But you do. Or at least, you will. And then, you no longer have an excuse.
Are you okay with that? If so, keep on reading.… Read More »
It’s a pretty common complaint: “Why does money seem so hard?” It seems hard to earn, and even hard to keep around once it has been earned. ?
Money has been my primary topic since I started this work. It’s the thing that challenged me the most in my life. When I started as an LOA coach, I was receiving government assistance (SSI), and not much else in the way of money.
Then within about two years of that, I was off of SSI, and making more than I ever had before. I consistently set, and achieve, money goals.
Honestly, to me it is one of the most important topics, because it is so ubiquitous. You really can’t go without it, and there are so many beliefs that we pick up about it, how much of it we can have, etc.
So why does it seem so hard? I believe there are three main reasons that people experience challenge around money. I’m not saying these are the only three reasons, but I can’t think of many people with money problems that don’t fall under at least one of these reasons.… Read More »
