Money is ENERGY(currency)?

I had a great week! One of Resume Energy’s clients accepted a job offer, and is going to earn more money than from her previous position. That’s a marvelous testimonial! Yeah!

Besides interviewing some great people, and learning about the incredible jobs they’ve have, writing some creative and energetic resumes, and planning the 2012 Career Fair and Job expo, I found some time to learn some startling concepts about money.

For those who are getting to know me further, you know I can’t wait to share with whoever is listening. This week’s topic is SOUL shifting. It’s all about MONEY, M-O-N-E-Y, and prosperity thinking.

Because it is so INFORMATION heavy, there will probably be two or three parts. What does money and resumes have in common? A resume is created to open doors to an interview. The successful interview lands a job. That job pays you money. Don’t you want to learn how to keep that money flowing?

According to this e-book, “How to Solve All Your Money Problems Forever”, by Victor Boc, there is a two pronged method to solving all your money problems. He says utilizing a simple but effective program, anyone can increase their cash flow to levels they have only dreamed of. Victor Boc’s newly revised and hugely successful, life-changing book is a step-by-step plan for ending money problems and achieving prosperity.

Boc’s proven two-pronged method teaches the reader to harness the forces that control the flow of money. The first step involves visualization and affirmations-because, as Boc explains, until you know exactly what you want and ask for it, you won’t get it. The next step involves giving money away, did you hear me, giving money away, is the way to “prime the pump” and get the flow of money headed back in your direction. He calls it glad giving. By putting this method into action, thousands of people have achieved financial success.

Now of course there are skeptics, who think his work is ridiculous. One of them shared this in a review of his book: “Such books are just pure nonsense meant to make money for the author and cheat people who don’t know anything about finance, accounting and economics. He recommends, going to business school and studying about finance- the hard and usual way. He goes on, there are certain things in life that you can’t shortcut, be more practical instead. If you don’t have the time, just attend a short course on finance and accounting, and you’ll know what I mean. Please he says; do not waste your money or precious time reading such nonsensical books”.

But thank goodness we all have choices. I say, read it and make your own decision. This is what I learned from reading the text, and what I have done immediately, to “solve my money problems forever”.

Boc says, money is something, and even though it means different things to different people, it is something, and it must be subject to the same laws of physics that all other “some things” are subjected to. That’s the ENERGY stuff I love. Physics is an exact science. The laws of physics apply unerringly to the wide range of matter, activities and situations found in our universe. The laws that govern our physical world are IRREFUTABLE. In 1687, Sir Isaac Newton published what have become known as Newton’s Three Laws of Motion. These laws describe the effect that forces have on objects. In the domain of common, physical interactions, these laws have proven to be a reliable formula for understanding and predicting motion. Briefly stated, Newton’s three laws are: 1) A body remains at rest unless it is acted upon by an unopposed force. 2) An unopposed force causes the body to accelerate in the direction of the force. 3) Every force there is an equal and opposite force.

Victor Boc, then used a kite that is being flown in the air to help visualize how two opposing forces can act on an object. In order to keep a kite in the air, (flowing) you must have the wind pushing the kite away, and you must have a string pulling to pull the force toward you. If the wind is stronger, the kite goes up higher, if your pulling of the string is stronger the kite comes toward you, but if you are pulling and the wind is pushing is equal the kite stays in the air. This he says is what happens to the “essence” of our money. You must realize that we are not talking about a pile of bills. The forces are labeled attractive force (the force drawing money toward you) and repellant force (the force pushing money away from you. If your attractive force is equal to your repellant force, money neither moves toward you nor away from you. You are just getting by; every dime that comes in goes back out again. When your repelling force is greater that your attractive force; money flows away from you. Every day, you go deeper and deeper in debt. When your attractive force is greater than your repellant force; money flows in your direction. No matter what you do, you continue to get richer. We all know people like this, who just seem to always have money. Now this is the simple fact, once you realize that these forces exist you can CONTROL them. To have money, all you have to do then is to create and maintain a positive flow of money in your life. And I don’t know about you, but that is what I want, a positive flow of money in my life.

The author shares that many factors contribute to attracting money to you, and many factors contribute to repelling money from you. He then gives you a detailed explanation on how to increase your attractive force and one that will decrease your repellent force. That’s the heart of this book. No matter what your current financial situation, the author declares, that if you use this two-prong method, you will generate a positive flow of money into your life. The two ways are always using positive affirmations and glad giving, and of course we all know that a prosperous life involves many factors: your income, your expenses, your debts and your money management skills. But get this, he says that many of us are addicted to money, and as a result we exhibit addictive behaviors around money, that serve as the repelling force or (wind) that keeps it away from us.

These subtle addictive forces influence every aspect of your life, and repel money. Any compulsive need characterized by an emotion back demand. A person caught in an addiction insists, with emotional fever that the demand be met. The mortgage or rent is due by the 1st of the month and it’s the 7th, what happens to you and your body? Just typing these words, increased my blood pressure! Our society inundates us with subtle media messages designed to create a feeling of dissatisfaction that fuels this addiction. Every day, people of all ages are bombarded with advertising whose message is that they are only sexy if they drive a luxury car, desirable only if they look like a movie star, happy only if they marry the person of their dreams, and respectable only if they earn millions. Addiction develops easily in this social environment. Addiction to money has become so prevalent that it passes for a normal state of affairs. When you are addicted to something and cannot have it, you feel bad. If you get it and then lose it, you want it again, and you feel bad again. No matter what the object of addiction, unhappiness is inevitable. If the addiction is severe, obsession fills your reality. Your see your place in the world as a soldier, struggling to maintain a sense of balance, fighting to regain control of your destiny. Desire lingers beneath everything you do. Everywhere you go, your addiction waits you. Addiction steals your freedom, badgering you with visions of catastrophe. In extreme cases, addiction locks you into isolation. You shun friends, family and responsibilities. You see one thing only; the object of your addiction. This object demands all your attention. You arrange your life to accommodate your desperate search. Your first thought in the morning and last thought at night is a contemplation of how to fulfill your addiction. Nothing else is of any consequence to you. What I am trying to bring forth is that so many of us are in this state, and that becoming aware of this is the first step. Get the book and learn how to apply the principles in your own life. I did, and I truly see results.

For little over a month I have followed the approach and guess what, well I just checked my savings account balance and there is something in it even after I paid my mortgage, my son’s car note, bought my niece a case for her Kindle fire, hosted my family circle with some drinks and beverages. Picked up two warehouse packs of pampers and pull-ups for my granddaughters, and even bought them new pajamas. Gave my God daughter some money toward her prom festivities, my paper buddy a tip for standing out in the rain and always giving me my paper with a smile, bought two big watermelons that were sweet as can be, paid to get my hair done. Repaid my aunties back money borrowed, paid my car note, bought some paper and folders for my resume energy business, and have gas and toll money to run my car back and forth to work. Oh, don’t forget, I paid for my doggies prescriptions. This is real stuff. The two prong method is working.

Victor, I did add another prong to this method. I wake up each morning, believing in a divine power. I believe that God is my source and my supply, and my CEO of my life, not my job, not my employer. I stand firm in my belief that I was created in God’s image. I will succeed in whatever I envision to do. I know that I will be ALRIGHT, each minute, each hour, each day, each week, each month, and each year, that I have breath in my body. Christians practice tithing but we have to start using more positive affirmations to keep that money flowing (currency).

My best regards!

Conversation is ENERGY!

Hi my fantastic and wonderful friends. I hope you all had a blissful and peaceful week. I had a grand one. Most of my time was spent meeting new and wonderful people, interviewing them, and yes, co-creating and writing their resumes, yippy!

Nevertheless, I still need to do my inner work, and I hope to inspire you to join me. In this blog I would like to talk (energy) about our conversations (energy), and the enormous impact the words (energy) we use have on everything! If you believe in the creation theory of life, then there is no doubt that you believe in the power of words. According to the bible, the world was created by the Word of God. And God said, “Let there be light”, and there was light. Genesis: 1-3, (KJV Bible).

With that as a foundation for my faith, I believe that whenever you release a word from your mouth (being), you are putting energy directly into the Universe. Because of this, I affirm that it is extremely important to consciously choose words that are empowering and not debilitating. I feel that the tongue and emotions are connected, so speech and thought have a strong connection. I also accept as truth, that you are the master of your own mind, so everything that comes out of your mouth is entirely up to you.

Most people agree that their speech can influence the thoughts of others, so why is it so hard to believe that what you say about yourself or your condition, influences you also. This influence often extends to the subconscious level.

Have you ever really stopped and listened to yourself talk?  I am learning that even the simplest of words can have quite an effect (energy) on me – even if they’re just one syllable.  Take for example, the simple three letter word, TRY, t-r-y. It is such an easy word to use, and always manages to slip into a conversation without any real effort. However, this small word is more debilitating than you think. Let’s do an experiment. Pay attention to the way you feel when you say the word, “t-r-y”. In this statement: “I will try and call 10 employers today”. There’s nothing powerful about. There’s no energy in it. Phonetically it’s a feeble and wispy statement. It represents a lack of commitment and honestly is void of integrity and action. I believe that people mistake the word “trying” for “doing” but I must disagree. Did you actually do something? There is no such thing as try! But how often is that word used?  How often do you use it? How often did you use it today?  Instead of using the word, replace it with what you are going to do. We all make time for what is important to us, so just make it a priority, and do whatever you were going to “try” and do. Instead of, sounding defeated, and saying “I will try and call 10 employers today”, say; “I will call 10 employers today”. See and feel the difference in the energy! Here is another example, say: “I am trying to reach, Mr. So-in-so”. Now make it a priority and say: “I will reach Mr. So-in-so today”. Now your words have power, tremendous power and energy. I choose “try” as an example, but there are more, many more no energy words that we must avoid: “should”, “have to”, “need to”, or “supposed to”. Here is another one we often use and hear. “I have to go to work tomorrow”. For many of the unemployed, they would love to go to work tomorrow. For those who are blessed to have a career, why not start saying, “I get to go to work tomorrow and earn some more money”. Rephrase your conviction, and the shift in your energy is brilliant.

Next, you must give up belly aching. I know complaining can be fun, and some will even say, “I am not complaining, just explaining, but I urge you to stop doing that now. If you keep saying: “no one is responding to my resume”, “there are no jobs out here”, “this economy stinks”, “I don’t have enough experience”, “I am over qualified for the job”, “I am too old to be looking for a job”. “No employers are calling me”; “I will never get a job”, words like these set boundaries and create exactly what are said.  These words are powerful. They kill enthusiasm, lower expectations, affect health, and keep one miserable, and unemployed. It is about time to realize that every sound you utter, every word you think or speak sends out an energy wave that aids in creating your reality by either improving or destroying your relationships, your finances and even your health because words play an important part in the realms of healing. It is therefore imperative to be very aware of what you say or think to yourself… every cell of your being is listening.

Now I know, that you may experience a negative feeling from time to time, that’s understandable, you are human. But do not magnify the negativity and plant it more deeply in your mind by putting that feeling into words and talking about it.

One more strategy, now, all job seekers have heard about the power of positive thinking. But this strategy is just as effective.  You must eliminate negative statements such as: “I never had a chance”. “I didn’t go to college”. “I’m getting too old”. “I have more bad luck than others”. “I’m stuck in a rut and can’t get out”. “I’m not as smart as I used to be”. “My family ties me down”. “People are prejudiced against me”. My health is bad”. These assertions keep you poor and miserable by reinforcing a defeatist attitude. At best, these statements serve only as an excuse. You must stop this type of chatter (negative energy). Do not talk (energy) or act—or even think (energy) in any manner other than prosperously and employable.

Here is some more advice. Do not get involved when others talk of hard times and lack of jobs. Just listen. Be aware that these unhappy people no longer speak your language. Declare silently to yourself something like, “I am no longer in the same boat”, “I am on the road to success”.

In the long run, you’ll find the road easier to travel if you associate with confident, productive people. Act and speak as though you have already solved your employment challenges, even if no results are apparent yet, your speech should support your dreams.

We need new conversations that focus on growth and renewal. Out of my deep love words, and understanding of the power of words, I can go on and on with this topic. But I am not. Simply change your conversation!!!

Here is a new and widely accepted strategy, because some negative thoughts are inescapable. No matter what you do, unwanted images can creep into your conscious mind once in a while. Instead of freaking out when you experience a negative thought or trying to suppress the negative thought use a two-word phrase to cancel the impact of your negative thoughts. The magic phrase is: “Cancel, Cancel”, just say, “cancel, “cancel”.

I leave you with this thought:  the driving force of words, whether written, spoken, or thought are continuously propelling us through life, making us or breaking us, lifting us to incredible heights, or dragging us down to the depths of despair, healing our hearts and souls, or depleting or increasing our energy. It is however, your choice.

 My best regards!

Job verses vocation Energy!

Hi my amazing friends. I don’t know about you, but I am still reeling myself in from last week’s blog; Fear is Energy? It was so inspiring that I read it over and over, about 5 times, and I wrote it, lol. However, it’s a new week, and time to focus on something equally as important. Before I begin, let me tell you again, that I so enjoy the time we spend together. It is my pleasure to hear from you, so please talk to me by posting a comment. Your posts are all so inspiring.

I sincerely want to help you find your vocation. What is vocation? The word comes from the Latin word vocare”, meaning to call. A vocation is a strong impulse or inclination to follow a particular activity or career. Your vocation is simply your “calling”. Do you know that in an ideal world the two words, job and vocation, would be one word? Sadly, in our industrial society, and for many of us, a job is our reality, and a vocation is a far, far away dream. It shouldn’t be this way. We should never have to wake up and have to go to a job or “work”, a day in our life. We should wake up every day excited to conquer the world, because we are following our GOD given passion.

We at Resume Energy; firmly believe there are ways to change this. First, there are many ways you can incorporate your career or vocational aspirations into your job. And there are ways to find your vocation. That’s my gift, I have always been able to help match people with a career. About 20 years ago I discovered that gift and like many of us, closed the door to it, because I had a mortgage to pay and children to feed. I wish I could say the mortgage was paid in full, but guess what my children are grown, and I am available now to help you find your calling, your passion, your vocation, or career energy. You are meant to be something in life,  and I want to help you.

Stay with me for a minute longer for a quick story. This week I had the honor of coaching, a hot, new college graduate, who is are you ready for this, “excited about following his professional dream”, let’s call him a “newbie”. Yes, he was excited about graduation, and all that he accomplished,, but I could also sense,  that he was also “fearful” about finding his niche. While interviewing him, I could hear both his certainty and uncertainty about his vocation, while he shared how he needed a “job” until he could start his “career”. Now we older individuals know that we can’t let this happen to him. Resume Energy doesn’t want him getting a job for “economic survival”, settling for a meager job, and eventually losing sight of his dream career. We, with wisdom know, that this is how and where it all begins and ends. I am so thankful he has chosen Resume Energy to work with him. I want him to be what he is meant to be, and not get a job for economic survival.

To avoid that “I have to have a job trap”, he was given several assignments. One was to journal about his dream career, because he needs to be encouraged to dream big, and to talk himself into following his vocation. Daily journaling about your dreams, hopes, and fears accomplishes this. I believe that our society would witness an increase in the “economy” if we would stop suppressing our human spirit, by believing we all need jobs to fill the pocket. That thought is emptying our soul.

When you were born, you cried, and the world rejoiced around you, because a new baby was born. We are all born with gifts, talents, and qualities that can help us foster and find our vocation and fulfillment. You don’t want to reach your 60’s and look back and say, oh my God, I’ve been 35 years working for the same company, yes I have a pension, but I was so miserable, what was I thinking?

You have a great calling, a mission, and a vocation, let Resume Energy help you find them and connect them.

Please allow me to share one more short story! I had dinner this past week with a dear friend who I have known since elementary school. If you know her like I do, you know that she has always loved to sew. She has such a knack for all  that sewing and quilting. While enjoying our time together, somehow the question came up about her newest creation, and she said these words, “I just want to teach the basics”. Why did she say that? For those of you who really know me, you know of course,  I started sharing ideas on how she can make this happen. “My suggestion, get a web cam and start teaching the basics to the world”. She smiled, but I am praying that she really heard me.

We my friends, must open up to the familiar, and be willing to work outside those circumstances that are stopping us from manifesting our calling.

I have figured out one of my life’s calling; let me and Resume Energy help you find yours. Email me at clarityincommunication@yahoo.com, and I can send you information on the great virtual resume and career counseling packages Resume Energy has to offer.

Are you either stuck in a dead end job, or not following nor perhaps found your vocation? It is never too late to reinvent yourself and unleash those talents and gifts that are dormant.

My best regards!
