Years ago, when I finally cracked my personal code on love, I was driving
in Los Angeles, and I heard a loud voice say, "you're finished with
love, now you will learn about money." It was the first time I had
ever "heard" a voice come through loud and clear, as if there was
an intercom in the car.
My ecstasy about mastering Love fell flat at the prospect of what was to
come around money.
7 years later, I can say that money, the entire experience of having it,
spending it, creating it has gone from something that "had to be
done", to being in alignment with my deepest passion and purpose as
well as more wealth (with more ease) than I've ever experienced.
Instead of giving you the whole roller coaster ride, I thought it best to
just give you the key to why economic crisis is a glorious thing,
even, dare I say, an answer to a prayer and why it signifies
enormous wealth to come!
With the Law of Attraction, every thought contemplated long enough is an
"asking" and so even when we worry, we are "asking." But
how does this relate to financial crisis? And can something good come
out of something that is seemingly negative?
Currently many people are asking for more wealth, more than ever these days
and at the same time they are also asking for meaning, purpose, passion and
happiness. How these qualities may demonstrate can seem anti-intuitive at
For example, I've discovered that when we ask for something the law will
often first bring about its opposite. In other words, let's say you
were an alien to this planet and heard about the pleasures of being
"warm and cozy." You decide you want this experience. Do you
think you would attract an experience of being on a tropical island or let's
say skiing in Tahoe?
The more intense the desire, or the more complex the desire, sometimes the
more contrasting the experience. How about skiing in Tahoe, versus let's
say being stuck in a snow drift, not knowing if you're going to come out of
it alive and then finding a welcoming bed and breakfast with a fireplace
and down bedding? Suddenly, "warm and cozy" becomes an ecstatic
When we "ask" for something, we will often experience its
opposite, simply because without it we would not have a
reference point for the experience. In the same vein, most
millionaires I know are self-made, who have been through a contrasting
experience either in childhood or later on through starting and failing at
many businesses, often having been bankrupt at some point in life. The
contrasting experience pulls in a powerful vortex of desire and thus life
The same goes for those on the Beloved Path, you've probably started off
amassing experiences of great contrast, so you know what you REALLY don't
want and as a result have created a bright shiny vision of relationship
that you DO WANT. As you get closer to this manifestation, you'll find
that the relationships you draw in are more and more fulfilling.
In our corporate culture of cubicles, of isolating urban sprawl, of video
game escapism, it may be strange to think that as a population we have
experienced more wealth than our ancestors ever did. (If you consider
that wealth in the past would have meant not having to milk your own cow
and produce your own food, of having the freedom to go wherever you want,
of being able to communicate easily then there has never been a wealthier
time on this planet for a large portion of the population. For instance,
having a phone during my grandmother's generation was a luxury, this year
650 million cell phones were sold). Humanity as a collective is richer
in experience, physically, mentally, spiritually than it has ever been.
Now though, with all of our material wealth there has been a growing collective
desire for community, purpose, and happiness as qualifiers for wealth
as well, and there is nothing like a financial crisis to help define
this for people.
For these qualities, sometimes it takes a crisis that questions basic
survival issues, that will push people to finally reach out for help and
connection to discover their own talents and true purpose. It
brings about connection, stimulates ideas, creativity, vitality, and even
romance! But you can only take advantage of this opportunity if you are in
the right state of mind, of being-solution oriented rather than
In fact, it may comfort you to know that in the October 6, 2008 issue of
the NY Times, there was an article about how recessions affected health,
and found that in economic downturns people tended to be less stressed then
during booms, mortality rates decrease, people exercise more, eat more
home-cooked meals, and spend more time with family.
This is not to say, that you'll be feeling the crunch for long. In
actuality, whenever we experience something we do not like, the Source
energy within us immediately creates its opposite and then draws us to
toward our creation through our emotions.
Isn't it exciting to know that this "global crisis" simply
signifies a global desire, and you better believe that the bigger the
crisis, the more magnificent the creation, so watch out world, because the
coming expansion of abundance for all will be a vision to behold!
