If I may, I would like to just dive into this post, while the words are fresh in my mind/heart …
In my role as a Success Coach (which really isn’t what I do anymore), I’ve often been asked the [proverbial] question: “How can I make a million dollars?” Or, “What should I do to earn $xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx?” Or, “How can I become more successful?”
(Take note right now that this post is not about me. However, to reach my point … )
I’ve made millions. I’ve helped others make millions. I’ve worked for companies that I’ve helped to make millions, from food service to real estate to a software company which made over $450,000/month consistently, where I was the ‘right hand man’, handling anything and everything from marketing to customer service to order processing to coaching a network of over 2500 affiliates toward their own successes.
I’ve been THE ‘go-to’ consultant for Internet Marketers who went on to make their names famous and unforgettable, while profiting millions of dollars along their way.
I’ve ran my own businesses which have almost always been successful … some of them INCREDIBLY successful.
My success, though, has been thoroughly amplified and enhanced by giving, gratitude, and love.
My success (for me, on a personal level), has always hinged upon whether or not I was ‘doing the right thing’, giving of myself in loving ways, imparting to others what they truly deserve – soul to soul, heart to heart – and being as at-peace as possible in my daily life.
So, while I can coach someone to empower themselves to find their own ‘keys to success’, I feel an obligation to first uncover within that person what it is that will truly make them a happier, more loving, more peace-filled individual. Because, in my mind, no amount of money is going to buy you that. Nothing and no one but you can find it deep within yourself. And what you (most people, that is) need most is to take that journey.
I like to ask this question of my prospective coaching clients, and I ask it of you today:
If money were no longer in existence … If money simply had no bearing or effect … what would you do, be, have, or strive for? Imagine a world where, in perfect harmony with all other inhabitants of the Earth, there was absolutely no need for money, no debt, no loans, no mortgage or rent, no bills, no taxes, etc, etc … but ALL of your needs and wants were taken care of.
What, then, would you attempt to achieve?
What, then, would you focus your life on?
What, then, would you wish to become or have or do that you aren’t, don’t have, or don’t do right now, in this moment?
The Ultimate Classroom …
See, I don’t believe that ‘the person with the most toys/money/material things at the end of their life, wins’. Our Earth is a classroom for learning and growing and sharing … and I don’t believe it was ever intended to have anything to do with money, to be frank, aside from the lessons we are meant to learn based on our experiences where finances are a key factor or playing card or building block.
“It’s spiritual to be poor … “
I also don’t believe that we are meant to be poor. Being in lack is FAR from living the fullest life possible, in abundance and prosperity, and in fact, makes it much more difficult to do so in a world so wrought with the materialistic, the undeniable control of government (eg, taxes, pension/social security, etc, etc) that holds so many down to the point that all they can spend their time on is making ends meet, and in a world where ‘the herd’ holds so much power in opinion that it affects the self-worth, self-esteem, and self-sufficiency of those who would rather not follow the herd.
Fact is …
Money is a manifestation of energy. Whether you sell crack on the corner, work 50 hour weeks, live comfortably thanks to winning the lottery or an inheritance, or whatever the case might be, in any given moment of your lifetime, you either have money or you don’t, and the amount of it you have (or not) is reflective of the energy and thoughts you ‘send out’, the desires you project into the Universe, pray to your God about, magnetically ‘attract’ via the Law of Attraction, etc.
Thus, therefore, you DO have the innate ability to increase or decrease that amount. If you want to make more money, you have the ability to do so. How? Alter your thoughts, find your true passion and calling, and be of greater service to others. Another great way to ‘have more’ is to give more. But, beyond that, it’s a completely different post and I’m not getting into it right now. (Have you read my book? Start here.)
How much you have, or the dilemma of not having enough, keeps us slaves to the time clocks of the corporations, oftentimes dumbed down so far that the only concern in life we can focus upon is that of ‘having more’. This is one of the greatest barriers to realizing our true nature, our true path, our true reasons for existing, in my opinion, and it needs to change … on a global scale, and for many folks out there, it already IS changing … for the better.
Let’s get back to the whole ‘Earth is a classroom …’ thing …
This is something that I personally believe in very strongly, and I know many of you reading this do as well: We are here, living this lifetime in physical form, in order to learn, grow, and share in spiritual matters. We are not upon the earth to strive endlessly for success in business, or to wander aimlessly trying to figure out what to do next to make another dollar (or another million).
Missing the boat …
Point being, if you aren’t taking the time, on a daily basis, to work on YOU – your spirituality and ‘personal development’, that is – then you are missing the boat, and you simply aren’t striving toward your greater, inherent potential. As well, you cannot possibly come to the understanding and partake in the ‘Divine flow’ of knowing that you are more than you realize if you aren’t growing in spiritual aspects.
Whether you’re allowing yourself a bit of time to meditate, to read something positive and uplifting, or awakening in some way, shape, or form, you deserve to learn, grow, and share in the spiritual experience, with at least a bit of enlightenment at some point along your path.
“The time is NOW!”
Friends, we are living in one of the greatest times in the history of mankind and of our Earth and of our spiritual evolution. If you can simply allow yourself to open your eyes and see things that are happening in our world right now, and to FEEL the transition that’s occurring, and allow yourself to connect with it, you’ll begin to understand even more that you are more than you realize, and that this lifetime – like many others you’ve incarnated into by choice – is intended for your spiritual growth, for love, for light, for peace, and for harmony.
“Life is a journey” …
And it is so … infinitely. While we have the ability to achieve phenomenal successes, even to make millions of dollars, and to become as spiritually evolved as this 3rd-dimensional earth-life will allow, the journey will continue on well beyond this lifetime.
The Mayan Calendar – 13th Baktun …
As we transition from what the Maya called the 13th Baktun – the triumph of materialism and the age of great forgetting (3113 BC – 2012 AD … ending, specifically, on December 21, 2012) – into the next age and the next phase of our evolution, there are many things we are about to learn, and many ways in which we will be able to serve our Higher Purpose. For this moment, and those moments to come in our nearest future, I would recommend that we focus not on the materialistic, but on the spirituality and Divine Spark that is within us all and that connects us all as one.
Don’t quit your day job …
I believe we are at a point where, to focus on what man and ‘the powers that be’ have forced us to focus upon, is futile. Do I recommend that you ‘quit your day job’, so to speak, and spend every moment of your time focusing only on your spiritual growth, helping others, awakening, and sharing the deepest love you know with your fellow souls? No.
Well, partially. As of today as I write this – unless I missed something huge that’s happened – we still need to earn a living, pay the bills, and worry about our debts. But, let’s do what we can to worry a little bit less.
Let’s do what we can to send out a little bit more love and light, and a lot less anger, hatred … darkness.
Let’s do what we can to take a little bit more time each day to grow spiritually, even if you’re just beginning to connect with your spiritual side.
Time of Awakening …
We are well upon this ‘time of awakening’ in the process of our evolution as human beings, as spiritual beings. Changes are happening and have been happening. ‘Times are changing’ is an understatement. Are you feeling it? (I’ll post more about this soon.)
Awakening is partially about ‘uncovering truth’. There is an Esoteric Agenda behind every facet of life that was once believed to be disconnected. There is an Elite faction guiding most every Political, Economic, Social, Corporate, some Non-Governmental or even Anti-Establishment Organizations. This film uses the hard work and research of professionals in every field helping to expose this agenda and put the future of this planet back into the hands of the people.

In the meantime, know that you ARE more than you realize … in ways that you might find mind-boggling.
More to come soon! Be well, be safe, and be at peace. Much love! ❤
In Peace & Light:
