This was the headline of an article on the CNBC site on 9/16/11. "Consumer Hope for Future Hits Lowest Level Since 1980" It's great news and here's why. In 1980 people were hopeless because:
  • National Debt: $0.914 Trillion. We are at $14.731 Trillion as of 9/16/11 but it's climbing fast. Check the National Debt Clock for updates.
  • The Iran Hostage Situation and President Jimmy Carter were in the news daily
  • The economy was melting down with 13.5% inflation and 7.1% unemployment (which peaked at 9.7% in 1982)
  • The Middle East was in turmoil and OPEC and the Oil Embargo was causing $1.25 per gallon gas
Notice the similarities? But how is this great news?

Even though the "traditional" economy appeared to be a mess, we were actually on the threshold of a huge change in the economy from a resource/manufacturing based economy that was 80% materialistic to an information based economy that could scale quickly. The IBM PC was being developed, Microsoft was in the early stages of development and Apple was gaining traction.

There was also a paradigm shift giving birth to a new spiritual awakening: The integration of the western, eastern and shamanistic traditions. It didn't change with a bang but it did go though a lot of labor pains. The tension between people who were resisting the change and those who wanted the change created disharmony or dissonance in all areas.

Disharmony and dissonance are a highly energized state that creates a drive for resolution. This abundant energy was a key driver of what followed. It was also a major step forward in the paradigm shift in wellness. If you look at the medical and pharmaceutical culture at the time the mantra was that modern medicine was the only legitimate form of healing. The very few alternative practitioners (massage therapists, herbalists, and others) operated under the radar and served a small but loyal group of early adopters.

Polarity Therapy was in its formative stages and a lot of other therapies were being developed by pioneers in the field. Anyone with public exposure and success was soon attacked by the American Medical Association (AMA) and drug companies as quacks. Some had to move to South America or Europe to practice. The process forced people to dig deeper and do even better to bring it into the world. But what very few people knew about back then is common knowledge and household words today. Because the AMA and the medical/pharmaceutical/government relationship was so rigid it pushed people to break out of the traditional thinking and create something new. The birth of alternative medicine, education, and spirituality all have strong roots to these times. (On a side note, that was the year that Nancy Risley started the Polarity Realization Institute which is now Spa Tech Institute.)

Great News! The Time for Change is Here!

The crisis is the catalyst for change. When people are losing hope it means that we are turning the corner. It breaks the pattern of doing things the same way over and over again and expecting the same outcome (which is also one of the definitions of insanity). It strips away what isn't working. Whereas most people feel defeated or lose hope, it also creates the perfect environment for the futurists and optimists to launch their creations. I predict that the people who are launching new ventures during this time are creating the next wave of powerful and exciting technologies and enterprises.

So look around and see who is getting started now to find the people who can see beyond the illusion of hardship or problems. These are the people who see the possibilities and opportunities where others see obstacles. These are the people who, without knowing it, are creating future opportunities for others as well.

It may start with them learning a new skill and starting a private or group practice. Or maybe they are developing a new product line or technique. It may take several years or a decade or two, but in time, what they are starting will grow. Do you know why? It's simple: They knew how to connect with source energy that is more powerful than the illusion of what is happening in the economy.

They understand in their core that by connecting with this source and being the conduit for this energy, they can create something that was true and good. It isn't that they have a big plan, although some may have a very well developed plan. It's that they found a path with heart. It's a frequency that they resonate with and that amplifies something in their frequency. It comes from a place of alignment that is unique to them. And they have the courage to follow it because it's the only thing that feels right to them.

Of course, there are a lot of good existing companies that have this same understanding as part of their DNA who will also thrive and grow during these times. They do best when the environment supports innovation and out of the box thinking. They will thrive along with the other ventures that are starting at this time. It's not about "Build It and They Will Come" kind of thinking. That's bubble economy thinking. It's about finding your true mission and finding the courage, energy, and support to follow that mission. It is a powerful and compelling force that drives creative energy and attracts others to help. It's the spirit that built this country in the beginning and it's the spirit that will rebuild this country or any country that has it.

How Do You Do It?

Start by choosing to be around people who are moving forward. Say goodbye to those who are stuck in their fear and focus on the people who are transforming themselves. Hang out with people who have a vision and a mission.

If you already know what it is you want to do but don't seem to be able to do it, there are many things you can do right now to get started. Write it down. Write about what you want to create and what's holding you back. Read some of the other entries on this blog about manifestation. Get a polarity or RYSE session to help you get clear and help you manifest. Keep a journal for what you want to create.

If you know you want to do something but you don't know what, start writing about not knowing what you want to do. Make lists of what you have done in the past and see if there is a consistent theme. What's behind the theme. Don't get stuck thinking about what "jobs" you can get that apply to the theme. Focus on the feeling of what it would be like to be living a mission directed life. You don't need to know what you are doing for work yet. Just focus on the feeling of doing something that is truly exciting for you and that you feel passionate about. Use Treasure Mapping techniques. And of course, get polarity sessions and do the RYSE exercises.

The clearer you get, the more clearly you will know what you need. If you just want things to stay the same and not change, all I can do is wish you luck and surround you in light. I really don't know how to deal with that position. It's never been in my DNA. Sorry. I look forward to watching your creations manifest into this exciting new wave of energy and transformation. I can hardly wait to see what you are going to do. Thank you all for being part of this adventure.
