You’ve probably heard this before: "Your relationship with money is a direct representation of your relationship with your personal power." "Your relationship with money also reflects your ability to receive and your ability to truly honor your deepest self." "The amount of money you have isn't as important as how you relate to what you do have." Blah, blah, blah.
Thought is our greatest gift and ability. It can also be our greatest liability. Our thought creates our experience of the world. Wilber and Orville knew this. Tesla’s thoughts turned into alternating current. Bell turned his thoughts into the solid and successful telephone. Ever watch someone begin their day in a bad mood and then become progressively worse?
Dennis and Clyde are brothers, less than a year apart. Their parents were self-employed professionals who spent a great deal of time away from home and away from their growing sons. Dennis chose to blame his "neglectful" parents for virtually all of his adult problems, which included alcoholism and divorce.
Have you ever said Yes when you meant No? Have you ever committed to a project then later (usually when you were in the depths of it) realized you really don't want to be doing this? What is in our wiring that causes us to cross our wisdom-boundaries, our values or priorities, and say yes when we truly mean no?
You are here to make a contribution to the world. And this Shift of Consciousness we are in the midst of is pushing us all to identify and demonstrate that contribution. Whether you know it or not, you already have all the information, skills, motivation and passion to do so. The trick, however, is to uncover that drive and allow that inspiration to lead you to your right-work. Discovering that work can sometimes be a major challenge in itself. Unfortunately, most of us choose to live by default rather than do what is necessary to discover and demonstrate our purpose.
Every statement you make, “I am fine.” “I am wonderful.” “I may have stuff around me, but it’s not mine.” “Even though I am in the midst of all stuff, I am fine.” If you can begin to create a distinction between the problem and you, you will find that things can go on around you and you don’t have to identify with them, or take them on and become them. Now, let’s play a game.

“Look...what you do is very interesting,” someone recently said to me. “But I have a life to live and I really can’t see myself as a professional psychic. Madame Ruby is just not me. It’s too airy-fairy.”
The concept of choosing your feelings may sound odd. Feelings are feelings, right? They just happen to us. Well, we can in fact choose how we experience our emotions. We are not victims to the energy that moves through us, the energy in motion, our e-motions. Sure, they happen instantly and unconsciously at first, like a wave that rushes through the body...until we decide to increase our awareness and be the creators of our lives, instead of the victims.
Have you noticed that the world around you seems to be different? Are you becoming aware that people are relating to you differently? Or that as you communicate with or offer assistance they don’t seem able to hear you or to accept what you have to say? Have you noticed that your relationship to your friends and others are no longer as interesting as they once were?
Recently I worked, via telephone, with a teenager, Linda, from the East Coast. Her mother had received a session a few weeks before and hoped I could “fix” her daughter. Jan was raising her daughter alone and wanted to be sure I knew all the details of what was going on with her daughter. When Linda called, she sounded like any typical 15-year-old girl with braces. She was intelligent and intuitive, responsible and capable. She knew what she loved in life, and desired great achievements. I asked her to explain briefly what was going on and what she would like work on....
