My Experience With Slade Roberson’s The Money Shift

Some time ago, I started putting serious energy into manifesting money. (By manifest, I mean using metaphysical concepts to generate money in my life). Soon after, I found Slade Roberson’s “The Money Shift” and felt that it was what I needed to move forward. Backing up my intuitive feeling, I saw my synchronistic number three times in the sales pitch for the book. “The Money Shift” is a no-frills self help book that outlines a […]

Being Kind To Yourself With Money

As you know if you follow this blog, some time ago I learnt to develop my self-love by frequently asking myself, “Am I being kind to myself?”. I’ve recently been discovering interesting things when I apply this question to the realm of money, which until now in my life seems to have been strongly influenced by my lack of self-compassion.

Make Less Money And More Value

We don’t need more jobs. Why the heck would we? Jobs are a means to an end. Few people like jobs for their own sake, and I suspect that those people who do like their jobs wouldn’t like them if they knew their efforts were meaningless. We don’t need more money. We don’t need a bigger economy with more money and more jobs. When we say we want more money in our economy, what we […]

Wealth Inequality In America (And The World)

Steve Pavlina wrote a blog post recently about this video which has been circulating the internet: It’s a good video and worth watching. If you’re ADD like me and just want the summary, though, I think this frame says it all: This is a visual representation of the wealth distribution in America. The top 1% owns so much that it had to be “restacked” into that giant pillar on the right. I found Steve’s interpretation […]
