Want to earn some extra cash or create a new business? Chances are you already have natural talents that could become your business focus. It’s easy to overlook what you naturally do well.
Do you have a friend who has a beautiful garden that was featured in the local newspaper, or perhaps an associate who’s so organized that projects get done easily?
I’ll bet if you asked them about their talent they would just shrug it off as easy. The talent you’re admiring is effortless and natural to them. But there’s potential gold in your natural talents.
One friend in California has a profitable home business for something most business people hate — bookkeeping. She has a wonderful stress-free lifestyle, controls her own schedule, makes lots of money, and has a waiting list of clients.
One of my neighbors worked for years for a carpet and flooring business. He now makes a handsome part-time income from an ad telling people NOT to hire a carpet cleaner. For $100 he shows people how to use Windex and an old rag to spot clean carpet stains and repair burns. He even shows how to restore the beauty of a wood floor with an over-the-counter product. And he is making lots of money doing it.
Love dogs? I know two dog lovers who created a *cash cow* business YOU could easily duplicate. They rented a cheap warehouse with a fenced backyard and set up a doggie day care center. They are so profitable they’re opening another location. City people will always spend money to have someone care for their dog while they are at work.
Are you an out-of-work executive? The very thing that cost you your job has created a new opportunity — part-time consulting. Companies still need your expertise, they just can’t afford a full time person with your skills.
Ultimately the ability to make a living with your natural talents and skills begins with a choice, followed by action. You can do this! Your special skills ARE salable to others. Just go for it.
Zoning, spacing out, building castles in the air..
How many critical terms do we attach to the idea that daydreaming is a waste of time? And how many school kids have been warned by a teacher to wake up and focus…. and even been threatened with medication.
Until recently daydreaming was considered not merely a waste of time but almost pathological: Old psychology textbooks warn that excessive daydreaming can propel one into insanity. And during WWI a United States army questionnaire included the statement *I daydream frequently* to screen out assumed neurotic recruits. Even today well-meaning doctors medicate kids who are prone to daydreaming.
But psychologists and neuroscientists claim that most of us we spend from 15 to 50 percent of our waking hours daydreaming straying away from tasks or external stimuli to instead focus on our inner thoughts, fantasies, and feelings. And there’s also research evidence that when our brains have nothing else to do, they switch to a special neural network dedicated to reviewing what we already know. In other words, we daydream.
Daydreaming appears to be a vital function of our psyche a resource of creativity, and an arena for rehearsing social skills. And judging from the amount of time we spend doing it, perhaps daydreaming could even be the backbone of our consciousness. So should we really medicate daydreamers? Humm. Maybe what we all need is MORE time to let our minds wander and dream.

Have you been experiencing some radical shifts of consciousness and “higher self” experiences lately? Stories of “ordinary” people suddenly traveling out of their body, channelling their higher self, and having instant personal transformation are appearing all over the web.
Maybe we’re just coming “out of the closet” about such experiences. I have had many such experiences over the years, including a spontaneous collapse onto a cement floor, a brief trip out into the universe, and a return to what I still feel is an entirely different level of so-called reality.
To backtrack a bit, I am both a metaphysician, a mind-brain researcher and doctor of psychology. So I want both my intuition and my logic to agree on the answer. Whew!
However something new is now peering out of the mysterious closet of the world of modern science, and it has profoundly clarified my personal understanding of the “higher self.”
Scientists exploring the nature of sub-atomic reality have found that what mystics claimed for thousands of years is absolutely true – we definitely ARE connected to a higher source of energy that goes beyond our individual normal selves.
We are now being told that ALL of life definitely exists as a single unified conscious field – an interwoven consciousness in which each part affects the whole at every moment. In more “popular” terms – we are each like a knot on a “fisherman’s net” extending out through endless dimensions of time and space.
This understanding developed as the scientists explored smaller and smaller portions of the atom. They found that at the most extremely small and immeasurable level of reality, there’s still some unknown force. And this force is present even at the temperature of absolute zero, where all other known forms of energy vanish into an unknown invisible force field.
Did you just hear Yoda from StarWars say, “May the force be with you?” I think all seekers of higher consciousness know this to be true on an intuitive level, but scientific confirmation can boost intuition to a new level of “belief.”
Interestingly, this mysterious force field is not exactly “energy,” nor is it a field of empty space. The physicists describe it as a field of information – a “Zero-Point Field.”
This undifferentiated space from which life arises is now seen as a sea of pure consciousness, with matter and energy just two of the forms it can take.
Physicist Ervin Laszlo calls this field the “A-field.” He seems to be referring to the ancient Vedic concept of the “Akashic record,” the nonphysical repository of all knowledge in the universe long been proposed by metaphysicians.
Laszlo says, “The ancients knew that space is not empty; it is the origin and memory of all things that exist and have ever existed. This insight is now being rediscovered at the cutting edge of the sciences [and is emerging] as a main pillar of the scientific world’s picture of the twenty-first century. This will profoundly change our concept of ourselves and of the world.”
The scientific evidence is IN! Our higher self is already totally directly connected to the One Great Source of consciousness, whatever we choose to call it.
You’ve heard of people who channel spirit guides, angels, extraterrestrials and ascended masters. Since this channelled information must also originate in the Zero-Point Field, we must all be potentially capable of channelling. In fact, perhaps our individual brains are sending and receiving stations connected to the one source of consciousness.
A conscious experience of feeling connected to this source is transformative. It taps into the same power the geniuses, mystics, gurus, prophets, holy men and women, and great teachers throughout history have accessed.
Research proves that meditation lets dedicated meditators achieve remarkable higher levels of consciousness. Then there’s yoga, fire walking and brainwave training.
What do YOU feel is the best way to grow your higher self? Can these tools expand your ability to transcend the limits of your “physical” being and directly experience the Zero-Point Field? Many feel the answer is YES. What do you think?
