I've just stumbled across a fantastic report by Mike Adams on NaturalNews.com - The 7 Principles of Mindful Wealth - and thought YES this is so true for so many people.
It's written as a story, sharing his own experiences and in it he asks questions that challenge a belief many have - that being wealthy = being unethical and explores his own journey around this.
If you are struggling with this dilemma - and many people are who desire to live a more natural way of life and want to support and help others - then please, please, please take the time to read it.
I'm sure it will help you and has reinforced my desire to surround myself with people who are also on the life long journey of self development and infused with positive energy.
BRING IT ON!!!
The 7 Principles of Mindful Wealth by Mike Adams
A girl half my age selling organic soap hit me with a sobering truth so insightful, it made me abandon five years of false beliefs and unlock a powerful new philosophy of financial abundance. I'm sharing that breakthrough financial philosophy with you here, but it's only something you'll find valuable if you're ready to let go of false limitations about money and welcome real, lasting change in attracting the money you deserve into your life.
The girl sells soap. Natural soap. It's the best soap I've ever found, and she was selling it at prices so cheap, it might have well been the brand-name chemical soap you buy at the grocery store.
I asked her, "Why are you selling this soap so cheaply? It's worth three times the price..." And in her response, I learned that she didn't really value her soap... or herself. She was selling her soap too cheaply because she didn't feel like she deserved to charge the prices her soap was really worth!
She was limiting her financial abundance by choice. Like many of us, she had unconsciously decided that her contribution to the world (her soap) wasn't worth much, and she had resigned to a life of financial challenges, living from one paycheck to the next, never achieving the real financial independence or wealth she truly deserved.
And yet her soap was among the best natural soaps in the world. Why shouldn't she be at least as wealthy as the executives at Proctor & Gamble who sell junk soap? (This is a good question to ask yourself, too: Don't you deserve more wealth than the corrupt Big Pharma executives who sell drugs that harm children? Of course you do!)
Imagine my shock when she turned the tables on me and asked, "So what about YOU, Health Ranger? I read your website. You've helped hundreds of companies and millions of readers, but you don't allow yourself to make a dime, either. Why's that?"
It was a good question. For nearly five years, I've been operating NaturalNews in a way that practically guaranteed ongoing financial challenges. Because I never took money from the companies I wrote about - and I never earned commissions on the products I recommended - NaturalNews remained in a state of self-imposed financial stress.
You might be experiencing something similar. If you're not reaching the level of wealth you know you deserve, you might be caught in a pattern of unconscious wealth limitations.
In this special report, I intend to free you from that pattern for good! By the time you're done reading this, you will have banished those limitations and unlocked a new era of wealth attraction in your own life. And it's all 100% aligned with natural health and natural living.
Profound changes often happen quickly
Is it really that easy to make such a pivotal change in your life in just a few minutes? Absolutely! The soap girl made it happen in me...
"How many products have you reviewed and recommended?" she asked.
"Hundreds," I answered.
"And how much money did those companies make selling products you recommended?" she added.
"Millions," I replied. "Maybe tens of millions of dollars."
"And did these products benefit your readers by improving their health?"
"Absolutely!" I answered. "I only recommend the very best health products I can find. They're extraordinary finds."
She leaned forward then, and seemed to take on the persona of a parent, even though I was old enough to be her father. "Then why are YOU the only one who doesn't benefit?" she asked pointedly.
Money and Boundaries
I explained to her that I could not earn anything from the products I recommended because that would compromise my integrity. People needed independent, objective recommendations, I insisted. My content had to be given away in order to be trusted.
She didn't entirely agree on that. "You've been doing this for, what, almost five years now? It sounds to me like you've EARNED your credibility," she said with a smirk. "The only reason NaturalNews isn't earning more money is because you've voluntarily decided not to. I mean, how long could I keep selling natural soap if I just gave it all away?"
She was right. If she didn't have a way to fund her operations, she couldn't continue making and selling her all-natural soap. The same was true with NaturalNews, and it's probably true with you, too: If you could make more money doing the things you love to do, and having a positive influence on the world, you'd spend more time doing those things, wouldn't you? (And maybe you'd spend less time working a J.O.B., right?)
But many people (myself included, previously) feel that we don't have the right to earn money if we're doing something for the greater good. It's almost like we agree to get paid in karma instead of dollars...
Karma doesn't pay the rent
But guess what? Karma doesn't pay the rent. Good karma isn't the recognized currency in modern society: Dollars are!
So the real secret here rests on this question: How do we keep our good karma and still attract the abundant cash we need to pay the rent? And how do we do so ethically, honestly and in a way that serves the greater good while allowing us to experience abundance, too?
I've found the answer to that, and I'm spelling it out right here in the full report that you can find on NaturalNews.com (I'll also tell you what happened to the Soap Girl and how she broke through her financial limitations.)
Here's A Summary Of The 7 Principles
Most people limit their wealth by choice. (Either consciously or unconsciously.)
Money is not evil. The way money is EARNED and SPENT is good or evil, depending on the ethics applied to it.
Money shall be accumulated (earned) in service of protecting sustainable life. (It shall also be earned ethically, honestly and without deception.)
Money shall be redistributed (spent) in service of protecting sustainable life.
Wealth shall not be hoarded.
Poverty is not pious. You do not gain bonus karma points for living in poverty.
Natural living advocates have a moral obligation to mindfully attract and redistribute vast amounts of wealth, in alignment with their core beliefs, and with full honesty in their methods.
Apply these principles to your own finances, and you will allow enormous wealth to flow to you and through you.
