Shine Your Own Light on Today’s Global Recession By Cindy Prosor

What I am hearing frequently in today’s global situation is blame. People who feel helpless and frustrated blame others. Those who blame others are victims. A victim is powerless and helpless. You don’t have to be powerless and helpless.

Crises feed on fear. When we come from fear, we attract more to be fearful of. With more and more fearful people in the world, the world becomes a fearful place. Do you want to live in a world of fear?

Instead of feeling like a victim in today’s world, I challenge you to look for the gift. Instead of pointing a finger at somebody else, I suggest that you focus on what the lesson is, for all of us including yourself. What have you learned? What do you want to do differently? What is the change that you want to see?

In terms of your finances and career, look for opportunities. Become inspired. Even more powerful, help others to see their opportunities. Inspire others by moving from fear and blame…into hope and gratitude. In this way you become a leader, not a victim.

If you have lost money, don’t focus on what you have lost. Instead, focus on opportunities and possibilities. Remember, what you give attention to increases. Leave the past, it’s gone. Be grateful for what you do have and visualize where you want to be. Try on different perspectives. Be flexible, willing and open. What do you want? Where do you want to be? What do you need to do to get there?

I suggest that you let go of status, power and other meaningless ‘stuff’. As many of us are finding out, those things can be taken away very quickly. Instead, cultivate things that are meaningful in any conditions. What do you really value that cannot be taken away? Love, intimacy and caring are the diamonds in turbulent times such as these. Right now is a good time to acknowledge the meaningful things in life that economic challenges cannot rob from any one of us. What are those things for you?

Give to others in a way that you would like to receive. Deepak Chopra states in his book, "The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success,"
“…in our willingness to give that which we seek, we keep the abundance of the universe circulating in our lives.”
It is more important now than ever before that we be here for each other. Find someone who could use a hand up and extend yours. I promise, if done unconditionally your gift will be returned to you ten-fold.

Yes, we are in a time of change. We can see it as a fearful time or we can see it as a hopeful time. The choice is yours. I believe that when we find the things that we are grateful for today and focus on those, the more things we will attract to be grateful for. Gratitude is a wonderful feeling.

Here is an exercise to help you to infuse your magic into the world. It is a three-part exercise.
1, In a journal or notebook, write about three areas of your concern in your life today.
2. Write at least one paragraph each on three people you care about.
3. Do at least three acts of kindness this week.

This above exercise will help to shift your resonance. Imagine throwing a pebble into a still pond. You are that pebble. As that pebble has impact on the resonance of the water, your thoughts and emotions have an impact on the resonance of the world. As your resonance shifts from fear and blame to love and gratitude, it will shift the world’s resonance. And as the world’s resonance shifts, magic begins! Out of your work, miracles can abound.

If you feel like you are ready to make a change but do not feel as if you have the tools, resources or knowledge on how to move powerfully ahead in today’s times, I am happy to assist you to take the first step. Please send me an email or give me a call and reach out today.
