Can you say, "Hello"?

I find this post by Phil so inspiring that I keep it on my desktop to read it time and again. I am glad to share it with you with Phil’s permission. Read on…

Could You Use More Money?

The answer is probably, “Yes.” Am I right? (OK, that was a no-brainer. Let’s move on now.)

A more important question to me is:

Can you fully, by that I mean JOYFULLY, PEACEFULLY, HAPPILY and GRATEFULLY imagine already having PLENTY OF MONEY, more than you need, much more than you currently have, much more than you currently have any need for?

As you may have already heard, there is a value in being able to imagine in this sort of way. Done correctly, it raises your mood, delights you, uplifts your ‘vibration’ and changes your relationship to others and the Universe.

“The important thing is that you actively put yourself in the vibration you must for your desired outcome to be created.” - Multimillionaire John Assaraf, from p. 168 of his book ‘The Street Kid’s Guide To Having It All’

Consider this excerpt from a 1976 interview between a Mr. Chandler and Arnold Schwarzenegger: Chandler asked Arnold what he was going to do after he retired from bodybuilding. "I'm going to be the number-one box-office star in all of Hollywood," he CALMLY responded. [emphasis mine] Remember, this was when few people outside bodybuilding knew he existed.

Chandler said he had to fight to keep a straight face as he was asking how he planned to do that. Arnold's explanation seemed "ridiculously simple," but Chandler never forgot it: "What you do is create a vision of who you want to be, and then LIVE INTO THAT PICTURE AS IF IT WERE ALREADY TRUE." [emphasis mine]

“It is a natural law that like causes always produce like effects, and, therefore, any man or woman who learns to do things in this certain way will infallibly get rich.” - Wallace Wattles ‘The Science of Getting Rich’

"Everything is about Law of Attraction. Not law of going out and getting it. It's not law of deserving. It is not law of earning. It is just law of achieving vibrational harmony with that which you want, and then it cannot not come. It must come to you." - Abraham-Hicks

But then, to imagine in such a way will COST you. Everything of value has a price to pay. If you are unwilling to pay the price, you cannot get the benefit. So, what is the cost of imagining fully, already having something you want?

The cost is, you must give up something quite dear to you: You must, at least temporarily, give up your current sense of yourself and reality and what you think is possible.

Now, a superficial look at this kind of ‘paying the price’ would seem to be a no-brainer. It seems we all would easily exchange a more limited view of ourselves and what’s possible, for a more unlimited, expansive and rewarding view. But the truth is often otherwise.

Our current view of ourselves and life and its possibilities seems SAFE. It may not be great, but at least it’s somewhat good or it might even be painful, but it’s what we KNOW. And to even temporarily give up the KNOWN for the UNKNOWN can be, well,… it can be SCARY. (Of course, it can also be EXCITING, uplifting and invigorating, but this ‘reaction’ usually comes better with a bit of practice.)

This brings me to the concept of COURAGE. What is it to be courageous? It is not, as some think, acting without fear. More often it’s acting IN SPITE OF fear.

Have you ever said a friendly, “Hello,” to someone you didn’t know, but were very attracted to? If so, you probably know what I’m talking about.

Back to image of having PLENTY OF MONEY.

Can you say, “Hello,” to having plenty of money in delightful, peaceful ways? (Or, any other great thing that you want?)

Just a thought.


Free Offers - Are They For Real?

Lots of free things are offered on the internet.

Free coupons, samples, free gift cards, free phones, free lunch, free high ticket items. All these and more are offered just as giveaways. You participate in the offer and the thing is yours. No raffle or drawing of any kind. Your gift is guaranteed.

Then there are surveys which offer chances to win brand new cars, cruises, bikes, makeovers and other high-value stuff. Fill up the survey and you are entered in the draw for such items.

You naturally ask:

  • How can anybody offer such valuable things for free?

  • Is this all sham or fraud of some kind?

  • Is there some hidden cost to these seemingly free handouts?

  • Is there some catch?

While there maybe some shady deals on the net, not all such offers are fraudulent. And believe it or not, the offered things are given free to you. Free in the sense that you don't have to pay money for them. Instead you pay for these items in other way. So there is a cost to you after all.

So What Is The Cost to You?
You pay for these goodies with your time. Companies use these offers to call your attention to their products or services. The idea is that if you get to see their products or services you may be inclined to go for them when you are in need of such things. For getting your attention, they offer discount coupons, samples, free gift cards or chances to win big ticket items, the basic idea remains the same – to reach as many consumers like you and me.

Your Benefits
When you participate in such offers, your instant gain is the freebie or a winning chance, but there is yet another advantage to you. You get to know about many new products and services that may have come up on the market recently. These may be more competitive or have more benefits. And most important of all, they are free. So you don’t lose anything to do them.

How to Gain From These Offers
The best way to gain from such offers is to look at them and see what you have to do to participate. Enter as many free surveys as possible that offer you free winning chances. Also the free gift card offers and other free item offers work in pretty same way. Most of them ask you to answer a short survey and complete some offers according to their guidelines. This is their way to promote their products and services.

Your best bet is to go for those offers that don’t ask you to pay anything. And do as many as possible. Because more you participate, the more chances you have to win or get a gift of your choice.

Take Prompt Action
All such offers are time sensitive. The winning survey offers do go on for a longer period of time as they want to have as many responses as possible for a single prize, but even then there naturally has to be a cut-off date.

On the other hand, the outright giveaway offers are on for a relatively shorter time. They are limited by the number of gifts that have been allocated for that promotion. Once that many gifts have been given out, these offers come to an end.

So don’t delay in going for something that seems attractive to you.

Asking for your prayers - Huricane Katrina

My friend Agnes posted this appeal on a forum asking members to pray for her sister's well-being.

Asking for your prayers - Huricane KatrinaPosted: 01 Sep 2005 07:40 AM

To all members of Adlandpro -
I am asking for your prayers because I do not know the fate of my sister Sarah Mutisya who had just moved to New Orleans last month to attend Tulane University.

I am very worried about her. The last time I spoke with her was last Saturday night, then on Sunday morning she sent me a text message letting me know that they were on their way to Bogalusa and traffic was very bad. Since then I have not heard from her and I cannot get through her cell phone.


Media accounts of the ravages of Killer Katarina make a sad reading, but they necessarily lack the expression of the individual suffering of people affected by this calamity. The appeal of Agnes is an example of what countless people must be suffering because of this natural disaster.

So please join me in praying for the well-being of the sis of Agnes and all others who are suffering in this dark hour.

May God have mercy on all! Amen.
