Here is a question: What makes the economical crisis similar to a spoiled child?
Try and picture a spoiled child. He or she, probably is very used to having loads of games and gadgets, toys and foods… so many that he or she is ‘numb’ and unable to count the number of things they have or own (maybe he or she hasn’t even learned to count as many numbers in the first place).
The spoiled child was never brought up to remember the real values that make a person whole. He or she is taught that they are who they are, because of what they have, including an expensive education.
And this is when the drama, or crisis, starts.
When the surrounding environment starts to show lack or trouble, it is then when the spoiled child begins to wonder, ‘How can I thrive, be happy and calm, and have or create even more things so I can play and be happy, with less toys?’
How about the spoiled child who has been so comfortably fed with loads of sweets, cakes, chocolates and big, tasty meals until he or she is sent to boarding school?
He or she is forced to go on a ‘diet’ because those foods that he or she is used to are no longer readily available for them – does this sound like a crisis for the child, to you?
These are perfect analogies for the economic crisis. The average citizen is hypnotised by the illusion that what they have would be forever, and live by taking all sorts of luxuries for granted. Just like gluttons, they are overfed with material stuff that we have come to a point where we ‘forgot’ to appreciate simple things.
If you try asking a person who has lost a lot of weight in a proper, healthy way, he or she will tell you that it is not the mindset of ‘being-on-diet’ that made them lose the weight – it is a permanent change of lifestyle and habits. They learn to be in tune with their 5 senses, appreciating everything that they are given to eat with a balance in nutritional values and exercise (and this doesn’t mean signing up to a health club or gym – it is even as simple as just running around a park).
And now you probably ask, how can you translate this to the economic crisis – the increasing number of companies that are shutting down or declaring bankruptcy, layoffs, depressions and rates of suicide around you? How about when you hear about the major European countries undergoing severe economic transformations
Well, guess what? This is exactly what you are attracting for yourself, because you said and asked for it!
The truth of things around us is defined by what we see internally – what we feel and what we say to ourselves. If you keep leaving space to your fears, your conditioning, what you see outside of you, or focusing on what you do not have or the disaster that you think is coming your way, is it any wonder that it comes to you?
It is time to wake up and transform the deep hypnosis of numbness and fear regarding the economic crisis into opportunity, where we see what is really important for each and every one of us and recreate ‘life’ at its pure essence based on real values instead of clinging on to extravagant, superficial, material stuff.
Now, take a look at this scale. Where will you put the arrow if I asked you where you stand?
I will tell you now that you can manifest the abundance only if you attract what we want with a prosperity mindset.
But one aspect of the prosperity mindset is that we have inner peace – the knowing that no matter how things are going or what is happening to us, it is for our higher good.
Here’s another example.
How do you explain when the biggest amounts of money and riches are created in the moments of wars?
In this time of ‘crisis’, some people have perceived it as an opportunity to thrive, to open new doors in business or make an order in your life of what is really important such as family, community, and remembering to enjoy moments being who you really are.
In other words – Step Up.
Change your scarcity mindset to a prosperity mindset, remembering that scarcity is a mere illusion, born from your fears. (Learn more about the prosperity mindset by downloading my eBook here).
So, start by looking into the advantages of a crisis.
- You are a divine being. We are all connected to the same Source. At this moment you are experiencing a transition, because it wants to remind you of whom you are, and to re-think of what you really, really want so that you can create it from the Source for yourself.
- The contrasts of crisis and prosperity are to show you that you can create whatever you want.
- The number one thing to remember is to see and focus on what you already have.
And now, in the perspective of gratitude of the moment, how rich do you feel you are, inside and out?
What is the number one value (the most important thing for you) that you think will support you in the transition from crisis to prosperity? What would you choose to let go in this process?
