Are Humans Experiencing a 24 Evolutionary Shift of Vibration

As you know, I am somewhat of a multidimensional coach and serve a quite expansive community that includes a variety of scientists, explorers, healers, and freethinkers. I am seeing these particular individuals feeling as though they are amid some physiological energy-shift. I am feeling as though I am feeling it, too, though I must admit that I can’t tell for certain that it is just because I am picking up this energetic feeling from the people I work with or I am actually part of this 2024 evolution.

What are the Signs of the 2024 Evolution?

Since I am not privy to any official word or reports on this evolutionary shift in human vibration in the year 2024, though I am not an expert on the subject by any means, I could tell you what I am seeing and hearing from the personal reports according to the people that I am working with. Here are some of the indicators that I have been hearing about and seeing in my clients.

    1. A Sense of Ease
    2. Media Hiatus
    3. Increased Sensitivity to Energetic Technologies
    4. More Concerned About Their Sense of Purpose
    5. Awakening

1. A Sense of Ease

Up until now, and especially since the end of 2019, there has been an increasing angst among my clients. There seemed to be a lot of uncertainty and fear concerning the state of affairs post-pandemic. Even though things have lightened up somewhat, they are still far from “normal,” yet my people started 2024 with increased ease.

They are relaxing into the idea that things are just how they are. They are sleeping better. They are less concerned with what they are going to do about it or anything outside their control so much as what they are going to do next. They are no longer waiting or hoping for things to get better, not that they’ve given up hope for a brighter future, just that they are no longer waiting, and they are not easily upset by any fear-engendering reports in the media.

2. Media Hiatus

In my work with individuals, if they are embroiled in emotional states of unrest concerning the world at large, as a part of my therapeutic involvement, I am likely to suggest to the client or the team that the individual separate him or herself from negative news for an agreed upon segment of time, while other processes and procedures are being implemented.

Among the people reporting a sense of vibrational frequency evolution of their human bodies, most, if not all, have wandered away from the frightening media hype and fear-inducing false news and hijinks portrayed in social networks.

It’s not that they took my or anyone’s advice; this just naturally occurred. It wasn’t due to any New Year’s Eve resolution. They just naturally failed to be interested in or participate in anything designed to threaten their personal sense of security or peace on their own.

3. Increased Sensitivity to Energetic Technologies

This is very interesting to me. So many people are reporting that since the new year began, they have become more sensitive to energetic technologies of all kinds in an incredible way. Those who possess electronic healing gadgets, like those introduced by Tesla and Rife, etc., claim that they are experiencing tremendous results from these devices. So, I tested my old Tesla equipment and think they might be right.

The lightworkers and energy healers say that the effects of their work on their clients are far more effective since the dawn of 2024, maybe a three-to-four-times increase in efficacy. That is huge; increasing the confidence of the practitioners, while their clients are in awe of the energy work and exponential gratitude for their services rendered.

Those who have a propensity to seek out a higher power feel as though their efforts are not in vain. They feel an increased connectedness to these higher powers and feel as though their prayers are being heard and the answers they seek are on their way.

Those who possess crystals and amulets or practice with healing herbs and essential oils are all suggesting that the tools they utilize, the crystals, amulets, herbs, and oils all have an increased effect as though the tools have become super-charged in some way. But could it be that they, the receivers of these subtle energies, are far more sensitive to the energies that were always there due to the vibrational “evolution” of their physiology? I don’t know.

4. More Concerned About Their Sense of Purpose

People are coming out of the woodwork in 2024, seeking to align with their growing sense of purpose. A trend that the powers that would be disgruntled by, I fear. It seems more people are concerned about their own purpose, message, passion, and mission in life than, not only since late 2019 but at any time in their lives.

People are looking for meaning. They want their life to have meaning, they want to contribute, they desire to make the world better in some way than the condition they inherited it in. This huge wave of energetic frequency may indicate the beginning of something happening within the human psyches that I have been longing and praying for.

And all this leads to a sense of,

5. Awakening

Not in the sense of some woo-woo awakening, but more of a sense that we are becoming more aware that things are not the way that they have been presented to us. We have been trained and programmed en masse to be good little servants, and we have, for the most part, complied, settling for mediocrity and allowing them to exert their methods of control over us.

As this growing sense of independence causes us to think and act in our best interest, regardless of circumstances and the effort to control us, we and the world could be in an evolutionary process unlike anything we’ve ever seen on this planet.

Or this could all be coincidence and wishful thinking on my part.

Of course, I notice many other shifts, such as increased love, compassion, tolerance, and reduction of harsh judgment, but they vary in severity. These five are all scoring the highest across the board among my people.

My intention is not to challenge anyone, only to provide information and welcome input from others who might be more knowledgeable about a potential energetic shift in humans in 2024.

Dream Stealers: Will Block Your Progression to a Better Life

For those seeking a successful lifestyle, individuals often find themselves navigating through various avenues and opportunities. However, a silent adversary can block your progression to a better life. For instance, the concept of indicators that represent living beyond one’s means, which I call “Dream Stealers,” have crept into one’s lifestyle, hindering financial growth and preventing individuals from seizing opportunities for advancement.

Picture this scenario: a millionaire entrepreneur is searching for a business partner. As they drive through a prospective candidate’s neighborhood, they note the lavish homes and expensive cars lining the streets. While these outward displays of wealth may seem impressive at first glance, to the discerning eye of the millionaire, they raise red flags.

Living beyond one’s means often entails maintaining an unsustainable lifestyle based on income or financial resources. Indicators of Dream Stealers could include:

    • Purchasing a home or vehicle that stretches the limits of affordability.
    • Frequent extravagant spending.
    • Accumulating debt to finance a lavish lifestyle.

While it may provide temporary gratification, it sets a dangerous precedent that can have long-term repercussions.

From the millionaire’s perspective, these outward displays of wealth may signal a potential partner is overly reliant on external resources rather than building their financial foundation. The millionaire may view such individuals as liabilities rather than assets, as their lifestyle choices could hinder their ability to contribute meaningfully to a business relationship.

One such entrepreneur pointed to a prospective partner’s car and said, “That could have opened a profitable coffee stand or been the down payment on a business investment that could be providing passive income to support his family better.” Whether true or not, not having an adequate investment portfolio to support his car and home caused the entrepreneur to conceive that this individual was a poor risk or may have some exposure to criminal elements.

Consider the implications for the millionaire entrepreneur: if they were to enter into a partnership or a relationship with someone living beyond their means, it could jeopardize their financial stability and inhibit their ability to grow their wealth. Instead of focusing on seizing opportunities for investment and advancement, they would be burdened with supporting a partner who needs help to sustain their lifestyle.

Furthermore, the millionaire may recognize that individuals who live beyond their means are less likely to prioritize financial responsibility and long-term planning, posing a risk to the success of the partnership or relationship and the overall economic health of both parties involved.

Dream Stealers undermine the potential for mutual growth and prosperity by fostering a mindset of dependence rather than independence. They create a barrier to financial success by diverting resources towards sustaining an extravagant lifestyle rather than investing in opportunities for advancement.

It’s highly beneficial to surround oneself with individuals with similar values and priorities regarding financial responsibility. By forming partnerships and relationships with people who prioritize financial independence and growth, individuals can create a support system that encourages wise decision-making and mutual advancement.

You don’t have to be a millionaire to realize the importance of remaining vigilant and discerning when evaluating potential partners or opportunities. While outward displays of wealth may be impressive, true compatibility and potential for growth lie in shared values, goals, and a commitment to financial responsibility.

Top 10 Signs of Dream Stealers

    1. Living in a home or driving vehicles that appear significantly beyond their means.
    2. Frequent displays of extravagant spending on luxury items or experiences.
    3. High debt levels relative to income, especially if used to finance a lavish lifestyle.
    4. A lack of financial discipline, such as impulse buying or inability to budget responsibly.
    5. Prioritizing appearances and outward displays of wealth over long-term fiscal stability.
    6. Reluctance or inability to discuss financial matters openly and transparently.
    7. Dependence on others for financial support or assistance in maintaining their lifestyle.
    8. Limited savings or investments for future financial security.
    9. Resistance to constructive feedback or advice regarding financial responsibility.
    10. A pattern of seeking instant gratification rather than investing in long-term goals or opportunities.

In contrast, here are behaviors that may indicate an individual could be a better business risk:

Top 10 Indicators of a Good Business Risk

    1. They demonstrate financial prudence by living within their means and maintaining a balanced lifestyle.
    2. They make informed and strategic financial decisions based on long-term goals and priorities.
    3. They invest in personal and professional development to enhance their skills and knowledge.
    4. They have a track record of responsible financial management, including saving and investing for the future.
    5. Being open and transparent about their financial situation and receptive to feedback or advice.
    6. They exhibit a strong work ethic and commitment to achieving success through hard work and dedication.
    7. They are building a network of trusted advisors and mentors who provide guidance and support in achieving their goals.
    8. Display resilience and adaptability in the face of challenges or setbacks, demonstrating the ability to navigate financial obstacles effectively.
    9. Maintain a healthy balance between work and personal life, prioritizing relationships and well-being alongside professional pursuits.
    10. Continuously seek opportunities for growth and advancement, personally and professionally, while remaining grounded and focused on long-term success.

It’s important to note that these are general indicators and should be considered within individual circumstances and specific business or personal relationships. A comprehensive assessment of someone’s financial habits, values, and goals is necessary to determine whether they are a good fit for a business partnership or investment opportunity.

Is There Hope for One Who Suffers from the Dream Stealers Lifestyle?

Changing a lifestyle surrounded by Dream Stealers can be challenging. Still, with dedication and determination, individuals can transform themselves into a better risk and embody a powerfully self-propelled and upwardly mobile personality. Here are some strategies to consider:

Assess Current Habits and Mindset:

Start by reflecting on current habits, attitudes, and beliefs about money and success. Identify any patterns of overspending, reliance on external validation, or fear of failure that may block your success.

Set Clear Financial Goals:

Define specific, measurable, and achievable financial goals that align with your values and aspirations. Whether it’s paying off debt, building an emergency fund, or investing for the future, having clear objectives will provide direction and motivation for change.

Create a Budget and Stick to It:

Develop a respectable budget that outlines your income, expenses, and savings goals. Take the effort to monitor your spending and adjust your budget as needed to ensure you’re living within your means and prioritizing essential expenses over discretionary ones.

Cultivate Financial Discipline:

Practice discipline in your spending habits by distinguishing between wants and needs. Prioritize essential expenses and avoid impulsive purchases or unnecessary luxuries that detract from your long-term financial goals.

Educate Yourself About Personal Finance:

Make a concerted effort to educate yourself about personal finance including such topics as budgeting, saving, investing, and debt management. Use resources such as books, online courses, or financial advisors to enhance your knowledge and skills.

Surround Yourself with Successful Personalities: You can attract genuine success by osmosis. Seek out individuals who embody the traits and values you aspire to cultivate. Surround yourself with positive influences supporting your financial growth journey and encourage responsible decision-making. 

Practice Self-Reflection and Accountability:

Regularly evaluate your progress towards your financial goals and hold yourself accountable for your actions. Be honest about areas where you may fall short and identify improvement strategies.

Adopt an Upwardly Growth-Oriented Mindset:

Adopt an upwardly growth-oriented mindset that views obstacles and setbacks as opportunities with hidden messages leading to a higher understanding and growth. Embrace failure as a natural part of the journey towards success and remain resilient in the face of obstacles.

Take Calculated Risks:

Investigate vistas outside of your comfort zone and be willing to take calculated risks. This builds courage and exposes you to increased potential for moving you to an increased financial set point. Whether starting a new business venture, pursuing a career change, or investing in growth opportunities, be strategic in your decision-making and assess the potential rewards against the risks involved.

Celebrate Milestones and Create a New Financial Set Point:

Recognize and celebrate your achievements and reset your financial set point along the way. Acknowledge your progress towards your financial goals and use it as motivation to attain a new level of financial frequency.

By implementing these strategies and consciously changing your habits and mindset, you can transform yourself into a better risk and embody a powerfully self-propelled and upwardly mobile personality. Remember that change takes time and persistence, but with diligence, dedication, and determination, you can create a brighter financial future for yourself.

The concept of Dream Stealers serves as a cautionary tale against the dangers of living beyond one’s means. By prioritizing financial responsibility, cultivating relationships with like-minded individuals, and remaining discerning in their pursuits, individuals can overcome the influence of Dream Stealers and carve out a new path to long-term financial success and prosperity.

 

Forgive First, Seek Reparation Later, if you must

You were violated, betrayed, or someone has committed some transgression against you, your family member, neighbor, community, the law, or government, and they must seek forgiveness, then you or someone else will determine what price they must pay for their betrayal or transgression.

Forgiveness is a complex subject to address due to the wide variety of complications spread throughout the landscape that make up forgiveness. There are two levels of forgiveness. There is forgiveness from the creator or God and forgiveness among us earthly inhabitants.

When we examine forgiveness from a spiritual perspective, one cannot help but see how the whole concept gets muddied up by religious perspectives, and there are many. Since my history stems from a basic foundation of Christianity, I have a particular vein that I follow. However, as a coach and counselor, I consider all perspectives universally valid.

Even so, religions, especially Christian-founded religions, could find better ways to manage forgiveness among their followers. I find myself in the process of trying to mitigate the damages caused to followers by religious individuals and their organizations, who have been deeply wounded and suffer accordingly. Imbued with this perspective, a more enlightened person could approach this idea of forgiveness differently.

Unfortunately, religion, in general, is all about separation. You see this all the time; for example, we religious folks are good at saying, “We are better than them,” and, “They are not like us,” therefore, “They are bad and should not be associated with,” or deserve some worse fate.

Regarding forgiveness, the religiously-inclined like to control the methods of forgiveness. The Christians inherited this from their forefathers, those of the Jewish persuasion who were very big on maintaining separation, accusing others outside of the fold of being unworthy, and managing who would be entitled to forgiveness and what prescription would be required for redemption.

Interestingly, I don’t see any of this exemplified in the love of Jesus mindset. In the mindset of the love of Jesus, forgiveness is central. Jesus exemplified forgiveness through his teachings and actions, emphasizing mercy, compassion, and grace. Offering it freely without having to be asked for it or to do anything in return for it. If we could embrace forgiveness following the model outlined in Jesus’ example, it would look more like,

FORGIVENESS

Given Freely and Unconditionally

Jesus forgave without conditions, showing that forgiveness should be extended even when it’s not deserved.

Given Selflessly

Jesus forgave despite personal pain or injustice, teaching us to prioritize reconciliation and love over resentment.

Offered Repetitiously, Without Penance for Failure

Jesus taught the importance of forgiving others not just once but repeatedly without requiring penalty for missing the mark, illustrating the endurance and depth of forgiveness.

Freely Given Regardless of Transgression

As an example of a radically extreme type of love, Jesus’ forgiveness went beyond societal norms, challenging us to love and forgive even those who harm us.

A Gateway to Transformation

Jesus believed in the power of forgiveness to bring about change and healing, both for the forgiven and the forgiver.

Overall, Jesus’ model of forgiveness encourages us to embody compassion, extend grace, and seek reconciliation in our relationships, reflecting the boundless love of God.

Today, Forgiveness Has a Different Face

Present-day forgiveness is rooted in justice and fairness, where forgiveness is a response to foster repentance or restitution. It’s often transactional, requiring the offender to take responsibility and make amends before forgiveness is extended. This mode of forgiveness is a strict part of traditional religion and is also represented in steps 8 and 9 of the 12-step programs, such as Alcoholics Anonymous.

Jesus’ Contrasting Forgiveness

The forgiveness of Jesus contrasts modern approaches to forgiveness and is grounded in unconditional love and grace. This is to say that forgiveness flows from a place of compassion and mercy in the love of Jesus mindset. It’s not contingent on the actions or attitudes of the offender but is freely given out of a desire for reconciliation and restoration.

Could Our Churches Learn from the Love of Jesus Mindset?

What if our churches could learn to grasp the concept of the love of Jesus mindset and forgiveness? How do you think the world would respond to a church that conducted itself like Jesus did, rather than the religious establishment of His day that He desired to distinguish His ministry apart from? Unconditional love and forgiveness would have a differential impact on unbelievers, with an inclusive approach rather than an exclusive one.

The love of Jesus mindset creates a unique approach to forgiveness, challenging the notion that forgiveness must be earned or requested, inviting us to emulate his example by extending grace even when it’s undeserved. This approach emphasizes the transformative power of love and forgiveness to heal relationships and cultivate a spirit of healing and reconciliation.

 

Natural Alternatives for Defeating Incurable Diseases

In the realm of medical science, certain diseases have been deemed incurable for decades, leaving millions around the world grappling with the daunting challenges posed by conditions such as cancer, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, diabetes, lupus, Lyme disease, and even the common cold. However, an alternative perspective emerges, challenging the notion of incurability and shedding light on groundbreaking approaches that have yielded promising results. What are the reasons behind the perception of incurability, and how can alternative methodologies developed by courageous individuals help to eliminate these seemingly insurmountable health challenges?

The Incurability Myth

Traditionally, society is conditioned to believe that diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer’s are inherently incurable. This perspective is reinforced by the substantial funds raised annually by various medical societies and foundations dedicated to these diseases, all claiming to be in pursuit of a cure. However, challenging this prevailing narrative, we delve into the groundbreaking work of innovative doctors who have developed protocols to tackle these supposedly incurable diseases.

 Deepak Chopra, M.D., Combined insights from Ayurveda with Western medicine, neuroscience, and physics and discovered a “network of intelligence” in the human genome with incredible potential to defeat cancer, heart disease, and aging. His conclusions became the basis for Quantum Healing.

The Paradigm Shift

By acknowledging that diseases are not inherently incurable, a shift in perspective allows us to explore the groundbreaking work of both degreed and non-degreed medical professionals who have successfully developed protocols to address major health challenges. These protocols focus on eliminating the root causes of the diseases, thereby paving the way for the body’s natural healing processes to take on the responsibility of defending, rebuilding, and rehabilitating itself. Our ability to self-heal is an incredible gift from God.

According to Andrew Weil, M.D., author of Spontaneous Healing, subtitled, How to Discover and Embrace Your Body’s Natural Ability to Maintain and Heal Itself, the body is so incredible that it can heal itself. He calls it “spontaneous healing” and insists it is not a miracle at all but a fact of biology. Weil says we are born with this natural healing system.

Overcoming Fibromyalgia: A Case in Point

Consider fibromyalgia, a condition often labeled as incurable. The proposed solution involves identifying and eliminating the invading factors causing the disease. By addressing these root causes, individuals can potentially witness the disappearance of their fibromyalgia symptoms. Once the invaders are neutralized, the focus can then shift to aiding the body in repairing any damage sustained during the illness. A hundred people no longer have fibromyalgia today, and a hundred more will be set free tomorrow. This can also be said for any disease. There is no need to suffer, even though the American Medical Association might maintain otherwise. 

Personalized Solutions

The path to overcoming incurable diseases is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Each individual’s body responds uniquely to various interventions. Therefore, a key aspect of this alternative perspective involves conducting individualized research to uncover solutions that have worked for others. By sharing experiences and insights, a community of individuals dealing with similar health challenges can collectively share information as they explore myriad possibilities and embark on individual journies toward reclaiming their lives.

It Comes Down to You

Are you willing and able to take responsibility for your own health and well-being? I think back to when I relied on the advice of my medical doctor alone. While I still respect her impeccably, I now have another doctor (of natural nutrition) with whom I also consult, and I do a lot of research and information gathering on my own. I have faced incurable diseases head-on and found my own way around these challenges. Today, I feel as though I could face any disease head-on and defeat it victoriously. Based on my experience and understanding, I no longer believe in disease. 

When I think back about how my life could have been, living with a lifelong learning disability and dying from cancer, I wouldn’t be able to write these words today. I feel like I am in charge of my life, but I keep relatively silent about my chosen path.

Many people I am related to and care about would never consider any of the alternative therapeutic solutions that I have tried. They would have rebuked or belittled me for doing so if they knew. Therefore, I keep my ideas and methods to myself and pray for them.

What breaks my heart the most is to watch the people I love waste away and lose their lives by clinging so fervently to the ideas promoted by the powers that be. When I ask them if they might like to try an alternative therapeutic approach, they reject the idea vehemently, barking an objection at me because such an idea would be preposterous. So, they check into the hospital, get the surgery, and take the poison, complaining about the pain, discomfort, and misery of it all the way until they are released from the medical drama and trauma by letting go of this life altogether.

Think About It

Challenging the conventional belief in the incurability of certain diseases opens up new avenues for exploration and discovery. By understanding that diseases are not inherently incurable, individuals can empower themselves to seek out alternative approaches developed by pioneering doctors. The shift in perspective encourages a focus on personalized solutions, allowing individuals to take charge of their health and harness a life free from the shackles of incurable diseases. Ultimately, the goal is to rekindle the joy of life, moving away from mere endurance and towards the fulfillment of a healthy, vibrant existence.

 

The Love of Jesus Mindset in Dealing with Trauma Victims

The greatest tool that can be wielded when working with a trauma victim is the “love of Jesus mindset.” This means that you defend the rights of the victim to be and do anything and everything they can to have some peace of mind. You and I might not agree with how they do so, but we will defend their right to do so, possibly with one qualification: as long as it doesn’t encroach on another’s rights to live their life as best they can.

In doing so, we create a sacred field of energy in which we can do the work necessary to assist the victim in their desire for true recovery. Note that I said “their desire,” as it cannot be your desire or the desire of a relative, loved one, boss, or judge. If we have learned anything, we know by experience that change cannot occur unless the victim seeks transformative change over all else, including but not limited to coping mechanisms.

You may be able to threaten a victim into feigning recovery to keep from losing the family, risking incarceration, or worse, but the victim will not be likely to conduct the deepest work necessary to get free from the trauma unless it is their idea. Allow them to come to this conclusion of his or her own volition. You cannot make this decision for them. If they choose to never do so, love him or her anyway. If they do, know that it is a process, a lengthy, long, and winding road of discovery, reinvention, and adaptation along the way to authentic recovery and new life.

The love of Jesus mindset provides a safe and sacred space where there is no judgment. Only empathy, reflective listening, compassion, openness, and a true sense of caring. Use phrases like “I’m here to listen” and “I care about your well-being.”

Practice active listening by reflecting back on what the person is expressing. This helps them feel heard and understood. For example, you might say, “It sounds like engaging in these activities is important to you, but I’m also hearing that it has some negative impacts on your life.”

Carefully and gently explore the patterns in their behavior and help them connect the dots between their coping mechanisms and their overall well-being. Ask open-ended questions about their experiences and feelings. Let them fill in the blanks and elaborate. If they offer resistance, change the subject. This is not an intervention.

Making the necessary adjustments in a victim’s life will be difficult for them, and it may take several attempts to make the changes in utilizing their coping mechanisms stick. You can help by encouraging them to celebrate their victories, no matter how small and no matter how short the duration. You understand that this is a process, and further attempts at change will yield better, more long-lasting results.

Over time, they feel supported and can build the self-confidence to move forward and dig deeper into finding the root cause(s) of their life struggles. Little by little, they are becoming the master of their own destiny, no longer just a victim struggling against wounds from trauma from the past.

You can offer them ideas about more positive coping mechanisms that they can use as alternatives to the negative behaviors they are expressing now, but the choice of what to try is theirs. Never suggest that they do a particular thing. You will lose them if you try to tell them what to do. Give them three choices and let them pick one to attempt, or let them devise another option. Alternatively, continue to listen to them and see if they are willing to dig deeper.

Help them examine that the negative coping strategies come at a price, and allow them to discover and relate the potential risk factors to you. At their request, you could help them in the examination process and ask their thoughts on your research results. Allow them to be wherever they are in their process.

Basic healthy suggestions you could make might include embarking on a path of personal growth and change, mindfulness practices, physical exercise, relaxation techniques, building supportive relationships, self-care practices, setting healthy boundaries, and seeking out a specialist to work with.

Remember, the process of change is often gradual, and individuals may need ongoing support. Professional guidance can play a crucial role in helping them navigate this journey towards healthier coping mechanisms and improved well-being.

 

How to Help a Victim of Trauma

Recreating the scene of the crime of a victim’s trauma and unconsciously acting out in homage to one’s abuser can reinforce negative behavioral patterns, prevent an otherwise healthy and expansive quality of life experience, and greatly hinder personal growth potential, making true deep and meaningful healing next to impossible.

While victims of trauma may find solace in revisiting similar activities from their traumatic past as an effective coping mechanism, the relief realized is temporary, blocking them from confronting and processing the emotions, slaying the demons, and ultimately overcoming past trauma, emerging from the flames as true masters of their own destiny.

Revisiting, acting out, and recreating traumatic experiences and circumstances, while they may offer some relief, may severely complicate or compromise otherwise potentially healthy relationships, as the individual may struggle with trust and emotional intimacy.

Not only that but there is a tremendous opportunity to make matters worse, re-traumatizing the victim or creating a new generation of victims. Engaging in these unhealthy activities and placing oneself in trauma-related circumstances can lead to serious health risks and may come with moral and legal consequences.

How to Help a Victim of Trauma

If there is any hope for you to help someone struggling with these mind-bending dichotomies, it is vitally important that you do everything you can to first understand how the trauma victim fights for survival in manners which you could not possibly “know,” unless you were also a victim of similar trauma. Even so, everyone’s experience and how they respond to it is highly individualistic, so you can never truly know what someone is going through, but you can do your best to have an idea. And your heart, if it is inclined to truly care about someone suffering in this way, can be a bridge to a victim’s recovery.

Suggesting that someone’s sacred act of providing relief from the pain suffered from one’s traumatic past may be a huge hindrance blocking their potential for a higher quality of life must be considered with the utmost respect and caution. This new idea may threaten their very existence, for their tendency to act out in the manner they do is their key to survival, enabling them to live a somewhat normal life. They may feel as though their very life depends upon it, and they may not be wrong.

Not engaging in the activity could kill them. One such example would be John, whom I asked if he thought he might be an alcoholic. He refused such a label, admitting that he did drink every night, but unlike his father, he could quit at any time. Just to prove it to himself, he decided not to partake in any alcohol over the weekend. By Sunday at noon, he was dropped off at the hospital by the ambulance. Sunday evening, he was sent home with strict orders to drink alcohol until he could be entered into an inpatient rehab program.

Neither you nor I could have explained this to John. For this exercise to be effective, he had to come up with the idea to test his own potential for addiction. He was a strong, independent, successful individual, making his way through life. No one in his circle of life had any idea that he might have an alcohol addiction, yet his very life depended upon it. Today, he is in his sixteenth year of sobriety. But it was a process of facing and defeating his demons from a traumatic past over time. There is no quick and easy fix for this.

While I say there is no quick and easy fix, I am quickened by those words because I have seen miraculous and instant recovery, but only from a magnificent and instantaneous transformative spiritual experience. These born-again-type experiences are far rarer these days than in days gone by. Keep an open mind; you might experience such a feat, but don’t count on it.

Helping a victim of trauma, one who has spent a great deal of time learning to self-medicate or revisit the victim’s root behaviors as a key coping mechanism, will take the love of Jesus mindset.

 

Why Do Victims of Trauma Find Solace in Similar Activities?

You may have a client or a friend who is engaging in activities that are similar to those that they experienced in childhood that were traumatizing, thereby continuing the cycle of abuse and, in a sense, paying homage to the person or persons who victimized them in their youth. If you have been one of the lucky ones who have not been a victim of such childhood abuse, you may never understand. The question remains,

Why Do Victims of Trauma Find Solace in Similar Activities?

For adult victims of childhood trauma, engaging in activities or placing themselves in situations reminiscent of the traumatic experiences of their past is an effective coping mechanism. The psychological, emotional, and neurological factors behind such actions are highly complex and extremely individualized. These individuals share their ability to adapt to their environment, a successful survival instinct, and the potential to avail themselves to engage in activities that are potentially unhealthy in the long term.

If the victim was robbed of his or her personal power as a child in the traumatic event, note this is a definitive distinction of trauma in general, then restaging the event in adulthood can empower the victim, thereby offering him or her a sense of relief from the traumatic experience of the past.

They can affirmatively experience being in control of the present situation when they have had no control in the recollection of their memories of the past. Reenacting the scene(s) of the crime is conducted in an effort to rewrite the past, rebuild confidence, and, in a sense master the circumstances surrounding the trauma.

Desensitization is another way to cope with one’s traumatic past. Normalizing the activity and partaking in it regularly dulls the senses and makes it not as painful as it was in the past. This type of cognitive rationalization can be thought of as just a fact of everyday life that everyone could or should get accustomed to, thereby reducing or eliminating the pain associated with the traumatic experience.

The victim may be in search of understanding regarding the former traumatic event(s), and revisiting the trauma avails them more data regarding the predator and their own victimization. As further information is gathered and research is conducted by engaging in similar activities as an adult, the inner child believes it can make sense of what happened in the past and find a way to integrate this understanding into present-day life. It might be believed that this understanding could lead to reducing the potential for furthering this type of abuse for others in some way.

When you are haunted by memories of abuses or injustices of the past, they can show up in adulthood in the strangest ways and at the most inopportune times. Managing these emotions by creating similar circumstances to expose and deal with the trauma of the victim’s own volition, in their own way, on their own terms, places them “in control” of emotional trauma when previously there was likely little or no control, never knowing when the compressed emotions might explode into life-threatening exposure next.

With all this effort, relief is experienced by the victim in the revisiting of the traumatic events or circumstances, but the relief is not lasting. This fleeting sense of relief causes the victim to seek relief again by seeking opportunities to revisit the trauma yet again.

When victims come to the realization that even with all their efforts to reconcile their traumatic pasts are in vain and may cause more harm to themselves and others in the long run, that is when they seek out me or one of my contemporaries.

Things Are Not Always As They Appear

The idea that “things are not always as they appear” emphasizes the complexity and subjectivity of our perceptions and experiences. Our understanding of the world is heavily influenced by our individual perspectives, which are shaped by factors such as personal experiences, cultural background, beliefs, and emotions.

Subjectivity of Perception:

  • Our senses provide us with information about the world, but our interpretation is subjective.
  • Different people can perceive the same situation differently based on their unique perspectives.

Beyond the Five Senses:

  • Our perception is not limited to just the five senses; it also involves cognitive processes, emotions, and cultural filters that shape how we interpret information.

Tolerance and Open-mindedness:

  • Tolerance involves accepting and respecting differences, even when they challenge our own beliefs or perspectives.
  • Being open-minded means considering alternative viewpoints and being willing to revise our understanding of a situation.

Wonderment and Empathy:

  • Wonderment involves approaching the world with curiosity and a sense of awe, acknowledging that there is often more to a situation than meets the eye.
  • Empathy is the ability to comprehend and even feel another person’s feelings, allowing us to connect with their experiences on a deeper level.

Compassion and Walking in Another’s Shoes:

  • Compassion involves recognizing and alleviating the suffering of others.
  • What about, “walking a mile in someone else’s shoes?” This encourages us to consider life from their perspective, fostering understanding and empathy.

Unconditional Love:

  • Unconditional love is a profound acceptance and care for others, regardless of their actions, beliefs, or circumstances.
  • It transcends judgment and encourages a compassionate and open-hearted approach to people and situations.

Changing Perspectives:

  • Our perspectives broaden when we practice tolerance, wonderment, empathy, compassion, and unconditional love.
  • We become more attuned to the complexity of human experiences, and our understanding of reality becomes more nuanced.

Cultivating a Positive Environment:

  • Embracing these qualities can lead to more positive and harmonious relationships, communities, and societies.
  • It fosters a culture of understanding, acceptance, and support.

Embracing flexibility, open-mindedness, and a more accepting attitude benefits individuals on a personal level and contributes to a more harmonious and innovative society. It allows for the coexistence of diverse perspectives and the collaborative pursuit of shared goals.

Intolerance in Perspectives

Rigidity, inflexibility, and a judgmental attitude can harm individuals, relationships, and the broader community. Here are some ways in which these negative qualities can be harmful:

Strained Relationships:

  • Rigid individuals may struggle to connect with others who hold different perspectives.
  • Judgmental attitudes can lead to conflicts and misunderstandings, eroding the quality of relationships.

Closed-mindedness:

  • Lack of flexibility prevents personal growth and learning from new experiences or viewpoints.
  • It hinders adaptability in the face of change, limiting the ability to navigate diverse and dynamic environments.

Isolation:

  • Judgmental attitudes can lead to social isolation, as others may be reluctant to engage with someone who is critical and inflexible.
  • Rigid individuals may find it challenging to build a supportive social network.

Negative Impact on Mental Health:

  • Maintaining a judgmental attitude can contribute to stress, anxiety, and negative emotions.
  • Rigidity may lead to frustration and an inability to cope with challenges, impacting mental well-being.

Impaired Communication:

  • A judgmental attitude can hinder effective communication, as it may involve dismissing or devaluing the perspectives of others.
  • Inflexibility can impede constructive dialogue, preventing the exchange of ideas and understanding.

Lack of Innovation and Creativity:

  • Rigidity limits creativity and innovation by resisting new ideas or unconventional approaches.
  • A closed mindset can stifle progress and hinder the development of innovative solutions to problems.

Contribution to Prejudice and Discrimination:

  • Judgmental attitudes can contribute to stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination against individuals or groups with different perspectives or backgrounds.
  • Prejudice and discrimination can perpetuate social divisions and inequality.

Global and Societal Impact:

  • On a larger scale, inflexibility and judgmental attitudes can contribute to social and political polarization.
  • Lack of understanding and empathy hinder discussions regarding global challenges such as poverty, homelessness, inequality, and climate change.

Missed Opportunities for Collaboration:

Rigid individuals may miss opportunities for collaboration and synergy, as they may be unwilling to consider alternative approaches or work with diverse teams.

Stagnation:

A judgmental and inflexible mindset can lead to personal and societal stagnation, inhibiting growth, progress, and positive change.

Rigidness and a judgmental attitude can harm relationships, hinder personal growth, contribute to social division, and impede progress.

In essence, recognizing the limitations of our own perspectives, being open to diverse viewpoints, and approaching the world with love and understanding can profoundly alter our perceptions and interactions. It enables us to navigate the complexities of life with greater compassion and empathy, fostering a more inclusive and harmonious world.

How You Can Write and Sell Your Books and Make Money

Question: How can you sell your books and make money? Answer: All you have to do is use the same method that we use repeatedly, without fail.

1 Start with What You Want to Accomplish

Know what you want the purpose of your book to be. Do you want to help raise the IQ of kids? Do you want to help people in struggling relationships? Do you want to warn people about the pitfalls of making bad judgments? Do you want to help people love more? Do you want to help people increase their scores?

A book can do just about anything, from just experiencing a fanciful getaway from the everyday drudgery of life or learning to think about or do something to increasing one’s human or spiritual potential.

2 What Will Your Book Be About?

Your book will have a particular message, tone, and theme. How-to books are the easiest to make money with. Here’s an example of some How-to books:

Bake a Cake, Be Happy, Bees and Honey, Breakup Better, Business via Cell Phone, Cook Better, Create Your Own Art, Decorate, Exercise, Find Love, Fish, Fly a Plane, Gambling Tips, Get 6-pack Abs, Get a Better Job, Heal a Broken Heart, Increase Business, Increase Productivity, Invest Better, Live a Better Life, Lose Weight, Make Arts and Crafts, Make the World a Better Place, Manage Disease, Meditate, Read Body Language, Read the Stars, Save Your Marriage, Self-heal, Send Love to the World, Survive Infidelity, Travel Better, Use Computers, Use Herbs, Win at Games, or how to do Yoga.

The possibilities are endless. And any of the aforementioned books could be easily monetized.

If your book is not a how-to book, you need to turn your book into a series of hypothetical examples of how to move through a process or life in general. For instance, any book, such as The Hobbit, could be turned into a way to manage one’s career, family, education, or life path for excellent adventure and outcome, metaphorically, chapter by chapter.

Or consider writing another book. We do this all the time, in 90 days or less.

3 Start Writing the Book

If you still need to write the book, start writing it today. We accomplish this feat by committing to writing at least 500 words a day, every day, for 90 days. Usually, one or more of us do this at any time, so when someone starts doing this, like you, for instance, you can do it along with one or more of us, and we can help be your accountability partner.

This sounds like an impossible task to many, but we make it so easy. Just write whatever you want about your topic any day. Do this freestyle without any preset order in mind. Just keep writing your 500 words a day, then at the end of 90 days, sort out your writings, put them in order, separate them into chapters, then create your table of contents.

Build your ook organically. In this way, it is like just writing from your heart or automatic writing. If you’re writing with us, we can help you with writer’s block if you’re frustrated and looking at a blank page.

4 Prepare to Teach the Book

While writing the book, think about the many ways you can conduct classes to reach the people your book was written to reach.

5 Format and Publish Your Book

After the 90 days are up, format your book and publish it. This is easier nowadays with the advent of on-demand self-publishing. There are many ways to get this done with little or no investment.

Back in the day, I was known as the 7-Day Author, and I wrote a book and taught a class on how to write and publish your book in 7 days. That book is out of print, and now we do it in 72 hours. Don’t let this part stop you; you can do it in tandem with us because we’re doing it all the time, or you can just write it up and publish it through Amazon’s Kindle on-demand publishing. There is no cost to publish. You will have to buy copies of your book to sell with your product, and if you are publishing through Amazon’s Kindle program (KDP), you can purchase inexpensive author copies of your books at well below wholesale.

6 Create Your Product

Give yourself a month or a month-and-a-half (or two months if you have to) to create your product or course, where you will be using your book as the textbook.

You will need to come up with all the ad copy, graphics, and worksheets and, hopefully, find friends who will help you with the dry run and testing your delivery methods. You may need slide presentations or other presentation tools. And don’t let this overwhelm you. We used to do this with makers and an overhead projector or easel with large presentation pads; some still do that today.

Just get started and make it better as you go.

7 Sell Books Make Money

Here’s where you can easily make a living doing what you love, connecting with your audience and helping them in whatever way you can, as you sell books and make money doing it.

You put on your own classes. You charge money for the classes, and the students buy your book and the textbook, and that’s what my friends and I have been doing since 1980.

And it’s easier today than ever before. My friends and I were always tied into doing live classes. Rent a space, advertise in media, sell tickets in advance, blah, blah, blah. That was until the COVID pandemic barred us from doing so. This was the blessing inside the curse of the lockdown. It forced us to

GO ONLINE

Doing so enabled us to reach more people at a far lower cost as we sold more books and made more money.

I still travel and do live classes. This is how I travel and enjoy the various places and environments around the world while deeply connecting with my people face-to-face and letting the events pay for it all. But I serve far more people live streaming online now than I do live, in person.

Do this, and you’re not just selling books and making money; you are leaving a legacy, building an enterprise, and/or leading a movement.

Adopt an Abundant Mindset by Addressing the Limiting Beliefs

For those with ambitious dreams, envisioning a future filled with success and prosperity is second nature. However, persistent obstacles often hinder the journey towards realizing these dreams. Despite expressing unwavering confidence in future success, individuals grapple with challenges that impede progress. Let’s explore the concept of an abundance mindset, highlighting its transformative potential to break free from the limitations imposed by a scarcity mentality.

Identifying Limiting Beliefs:

Many aspiring individuals encounter recurring thoughts such as, “If only I buy this product, my life is totally going to change,” or “If only I had more money, I could really succeed in earning a good income.” These sentiments, although well-intentioned, often mask deeper-rooted issues. The persistence of such thoughts can indicate a scarcity mindset, where individuals unknowingly undermine their potential for success.

What are Limiting Beliefs?

Limiting beliefs are subconscious convictions or thoughts that constrain an individual’s actions and, in turn, hinder personal and financial growth. In the context of money frequency, these beliefs create a mindset that restricts the flow of abundance and prosperity.

Why Examine Limiting Beliefs?

Examining limiting beliefs is crucial when aiming to change your money frequency because these beliefs often act as barriers. They shape your attitudes toward money, influence decision-making, and impact how you perceive opportunities. Identifying and addressing limiting beliefs is a pivotal step in fostering a positive and abundant mindset.

Identifying Limiting Beliefs:

1. Reflect on Past Experiences:

    • Consider your past experiences with money. Were there instances where you felt undeserving, fearful, or guilty about wealth or success? Reflecting on your history can reveal underlying beliefs.

2. Observe Thought Patterns:

    • Pay attention to your thought patterns regarding money. Do you catch yourself thinking phrases like “I’ll never be rich” or “Money is the root of all problems”? These recurring thoughts often point to limiting beliefs.

3. Notice Emotional Reactions:

    • Emotional reactions to financial discussions or situations can be indicators. If topics related to wealth trigger anxiety, stress, or negative emotions, it might be linked to underlying limiting beliefs.

4. Evaluate Self-Talk:

    • Listen to your internal dialogue. If you consistently speak negatively about your financial situation or doubt your ability to achieve financial goals, these self-deprecating statements can be rooted in limiting beliefs.

5. Examine Beliefs About Others:

    • Assess your beliefs about wealthy individuals. Do you perceive them as inherently greedy or unethical? Examining your attitudes toward others’ financial success can reveal deep-seated beliefs.

Common Limiting Beliefs:

1. “Money is the Root of All Evil”:

    • This belief implies that pursuing wealth is morally wrong. Shifting this to “Money can be a force for good” opens up positive possibilities.

2. “I’m Not Worthy of Wealth”:

    • Feeling undeserving of financial success can hinder efforts to attract abundance. Replacing this belief with “I am worthy of abundance” fosters a healthier mindset.

3. “I’ll Never Be Successful”:

    • A defeatist attitude limits potential. Transform this belief into “I am capable of achieving success” to empower your journey.

Addressing Limiting Beliefs:

1. Awareness:

    • Acknowledge and accept your limiting beliefs. Awareness is the first step toward transformation.

2. Challenge and Reframe:

    • Challenge negative beliefs. Ask yourself if these beliefs align with reality. Reframe them into positive, empowering statements.

3. Visualization:

    • Use visualization techniques to imagine a future without these limiting beliefs. Visualize success, prosperity, and financial well-being.

4. Affirmations:

    • Develop positive affirmations that counteract limiting beliefs. Repeat these affirmations regularly to reinforce a positive money mindset.

5. Seek Support:

    • Discussing your beliefs with a coach, mentor, or therapist can provide valuable insights and guidance in overcoming limiting beliefs.

6. Continuous Growth:

    • Cultivate a mindset of continuous growth. Embrace learning, challenge yourself, and adopt beliefs that align with your financial goals.

Addressing limiting beliefs is an ongoing process. Proactively examining and transforming these beliefs creates space for a positive money frequency and elevates your financial vibration.

Elon Musk:

Consider the story of successful entrepreneurs who overcame adversity and scarcity thinking. Elon Musk, the visionary behind Tesla and SpaceX, faced numerous setbacks and financial challenges. However, his unwavering belief in the potential for positive change and abundance-thinking propelled him to monumental success. Musk’s journey exemplifies the power of adopting an abundance mindset, even in the face of daunting obstacles.

The Illusion of Busyness:

A common manifestation of a scarcity mindset is the illusion of busyness, akin to “treading water.” Despite investing considerable effort and time, individuals may find themselves stuck, making little progress toward their goals. This phenomenon can be likened to a swimmer kicking vigorously but remaining stationary due to fear and self-imposed limitations. The analogy emphasizes the futility of hard work in the absence of an abundance mindset.

Supporting Evidence:

Research conducted by psychologists Carol S. Dweck and Angela L. Duckworth underscores the impact of mindset on achievement. Their studies reveal that individuals with a growth mindset, akin to an abundance mindset, are more likely to persevere in the face of challenges and achieve long-term success. This empirical evidence highlights the tangible benefits of cultivating a mindset that fosters abundance.

Overcoming the Scarcity Monster:

Acknowledging the existence of a scarcity mindset is the first step toward transformation. By challenging limiting beliefs and embracing a mindset of abundance, individuals can break free from the self-imposed barriers hindering their progress. Strategies such as positive affirmations, goal visualization, and gratitude practices are proven tools for fostering an abundance mindset.

In the pursuit of ambitious dreams, cultivating an abundance mindset emerges as a pivotal factor in achieving sustainable success. Real-world examples and empirical evidence underscore the transformative power of adopting a mindset that rejects scarcity thinking. By challenging limiting beliefs and embracing abundance, individuals can navigate the path from dreaming to doing, ushering in a future of unparalleled success and fulfillment.
