The new economy

Another way to look at these factors affecting our economy is that they are the winds of change.

We are now standing at the turning point of a lifetime. It is a time to take hold of our power and participate in a defining moment in human history. Several factors have come together to create this opportunity, and it is up to each of us to hold a vision and stay positive. If we do this, we will all look back on this time with gratitude instead of regret.

Collective consciousness is an interesting phenomenon and a powerful force with which to work. Right now there are several factors affecting our economy, and many people are scared and operating in fear. We must remain positive in the face of higher gas prices, housing foreclosures and a dropping stock market. If we do this, we will positively impact the collective consciousness, and the universe will give each of us who have remained positive a sign that our energy has made a difference.

Another way to look at these factors affecting our economy is that they are the winds of change. The conscious person knows that there are no victims and that we have collectively created this scenario. Collectively, we are on the hero’s journey, and there are enough of us ready to embrace the trials and pursue the Holy Grail.

Where does this journey lead us? What is the Holy Grail of our time? We are surrounded with amazing opportunities. If there were enough oil to last indefinitely, our atmosphere could not handle the burning of it. So we adjust our driving habits, which will result in a drop in the price of gasoline. As we drive, we will visualize and feel the joy of the time when every car on the road no longer pollutes our beautiful sky.

We will see solar panels on every roof in the Valley of the Sun. With our pocketbooks, we will steer our economy toward alternatives. We will continue to buy as much organic food as possible and feel the joy of Mother Earth blessing our tenacity. We will take hold of the mantle of power and continue to do what we have been doing by using our strength to positively impact mass consciousness.

Now let’s take a few moments to remember and focus on another positive thing that we have been doing. We have been quietly building a new economy in the service sector, which has been growing over the last couple decades. It is a holistic economy, and it is a force to be reckoned with! Our achievement is truly amazing and we need to remember how powerful it is and the promise it holds.

Many of us have been engaged in services dedicated to improving our lives physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. These services all support an incredible spiritual awakening of human potential and include alternative healing, organic nutrition, massage, yoga, energy work and all modalities that fit under the general category of holism.

What we have done has not gone unnoticed, and every day thousands of people across the globe are turning to our way of life for the answers they have not found to the challenges facing the world. Every day, we must empower this shift with gratitude.

Now let’s take a few moments to remember and consider the impact of our actions. As predicted, there is a stampede in corporate America to go green. This is the direct result of our impact on our economy. Many services we use to improve our lives take almost nothing from the earth. They are very earth friendly.

Imagine the impact on our economy and the earth if only 10 percent of our businesses were involved in these holistic services. The positive environmental impact alone would be staggering. Now ponder the snowball effect all these people living differently would have on mass consciousness.

We can all embrace the winds of change blowing so strongly now. We can embrace our individual and collective fears and transmute them into power. With this power, we can move forward and continue to support this new economy with the enthusiasm of our spirits.

This is our time: together, we must continue to support one another by purchasing each other’s services. Our new economy is the Holy Grail of our time. We must use our power to hold a vision for humanity and dream it into being. If not now, when? If not us, who?
