Spiritually connected entrepreneurs, holisitic practitioners, alternative therapists and anyone else who follows the principles of universal laws and how to put these into practice for more wealth, more health and more happiness!
Is your life so busy you can’t find the time to focus on health & well-being? It happens to all of us at some point. Life can get very complicated very quickly and there are times in our lives when we find ourselves struggling to fit it all in. Negativity creeps in as thoughts race through our minds and we are unable to concentrate on anything for longer than a milli-second.
At those times it’s easier to bring ourselves down with admonishments to work harder, be better, achieve more, be slimmer, be more active, do more, fit more in. We want to be more than we are, despite being totally frazzled with what we’ve got.
What we need to do is to reflect on how we’ve been taking on too much which has led to us being this way. Here are some questions you can ask yourself to help with that:
* Is what I am thinking a fact, or is it just a thought?
* How realistic is my thinking?
* Can I think differently about this issue?
* When did I last take a break and do something just for me?
* Am I getting enough sleep?
* Am I getting enough exercise?
* Do I have a healthy & nutritious diet?
If you are able to sit quietly with your eyes closed and let the thought patterns drift through your mind. Adjust your breathing so you slow it down, breathing deeply in and out. Breathing in energy and breathing out stress.
This will help you to become more balanced and mindful. When balance is restored you can use mindfulness to stay in the moment, so you can enjoy your experiences with a sense of freedom and spontaneity.

Have you ever come across the concept of energy transmutation?
If you’ve read the well-known book called “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill, you’ll certainly have noticed that in it he writes about “Sexual Energy Transmutation”. Unfortunately, like many authors who want to keep their secrets to themselves, he doesn’t reveal step-by-step instructions on how to use this powerful and life-changing energy to your advantage.
So I’m delighted to let you know about a highly informative teleseminar coming up in the middle of May with my colleague, Lisa Turner, called: “Mystery of Energy Transmutation”.
Lisa is the founder of Psycademy, a certified trainer of Tantra, Hypnosis, NLP, NLP Coaching and Time Line Therapy, as well a Psychic, Shamanic Practitioner and Reiki Master. She holds a PhD in Science and is a true professional in various therapeutic and healing modalities. She prides herself on bringing grounded science to this subject, so be prepared. You will be entering a No Fluff Zone!
The teleseminar will include adult content, but don’t worry… Lisa’s style is to treat it in a way that is honouring and respectful whilst keeping the topic light hearted.
Here’s just a sampling of what you’ll discover…
• The vital importance of connecting consciousness, love and sex. If you’re able to connect these elements, you can experience a powerful and miraculous transformation that will make you reborn with more charisma and magnetism than ever before!
• How to empower your professional and entrepreneurial skills and gain a massive boost in your motivation and success at work.

As an entrepreneur it’s essential to learn from other entrepreneurs as it’s not a subject taught in schools. And it’s certainly not something you learn in most jobs either. Therefore it makes sense to plan an hour a day to fill your entrepreneurial mind with the sort of material, knowledge and expertise you need to grow. Any successful entrepreneur will tell you that earning, studying and working with other successful entrepreneurs plays a key part as to whether you will succeed in what it is that you want to do. And you need to set yourself an essential study guide to enable you to do this.
And there’s nothing better than a good book. Here are my favourite essential reads:
1. The Science Of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles
2. Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill
3. Working With The Law by Raymond Holliwell
And here’s what you need to do on a daily basis;
i. Observe yourself daily, the actions you take and the material you fill your mind with. This is immensely important. Become aware of what you are doing, thinking and being at any given moment.
ii. Take an hour every day to not only read one of the above books or some other entrepreneurial material but to really study what is in the material. Analyze it and gain a better understanding of the messages behind what is being presented to you in the
iii. Do some critical thinking on what you have studied and how you might apply it to your current situation.
iv. Make space in your life for whatever it is you want to have happen and while you do this, give yourself permission to do what you really want to do in your own life, regardless of what anyone else thinks of it all.
v. Listen to your inner self and determine whatever it is you need to do right now and give yourself permission to do it. Is it to exercise? To take a break? To walk in the sunshine? To express yourself in some way? It’s okay to do that.
Did you know that most people who are unhappy or discontent with their lives in some way, it’s because they’re suppressing all the things they really want to do and be in their lives. So give yourself permission to do just that. And set some time aside daily for your entrepreneurial studies too!
What’s on your essential study guide for today? Just do it!

How To Apply The Law Of Polarity
“True desire represents the urge of life seeking a fuller expression and is kept alive by continuous expectation of its fulfillment. It brings to us the ways and the means for its manifestation”.
Raymond Holliwell – Working With The Law.
The principle above means that no desire is felt until the supply is ready to appear and no mind can be conscious of a need or a desire unless the possibility of fulfillment already exists.
Now what happens is that when a person hears this they then start to say I have a need or a desire for more money or something else that they’d like. They then try to figure out how to do it. That is not their job. To do that is a mistake. It is the universe’s job to figure out the how. Because if you already knew the how then you’d already be doing it.
What happens is when you make a decision, the kind of decision that you’re not going to go back on tomorrow because it’s uncomfortable. It has to be a clear cut firm decision that you’re going to manifest and fulfill this need and desire that’s in your life. Then you’re clear on the amount that you want. So you make the decision, you’re clear on the amount that you want.
Next, you have to know what it is that you want. Now here’s why this is important. People are frequently asked, “How much money do you want?” And they’ll say, “Oh, I want to make a million,” or, “I want to be financially free.” Or they won’t know the number at all. They’ll just say a lot of money. Or “I don’t want to be in debt.” What they’re expressing is coming from a very negative standpoint. It‘s coming from a position of they don’t want to have to worry about money, they’re afraid to go broke, so they’re afraid of money.
So, you have to be very clear about the amount of money you want, and the reason why you want it. And it has to align itself with the law of the universe about more life. So that means that the money needs to make your life richer and to make somebody else’s life richer—in quality, that is. So you have to make a decision, to know how much you want, know why it is that you need it.
And finally you need to realize that for money it’s already here and you have to start looking for the opportunity and the opportunity will always come in the form of growth.
In other words, it‘s going to require that you do something that you previously did not want to do and it will be the first place that you need to grow to allow it to start to come in.
Now this is a sticking point with a lot of people because very often, it requires that they actually spend money to do it. Not all the time but most of the time.
So how do you know what area you need to grow in? It comes by what is the most pressing problem that you have and what are you resisting changing?
Let me give you an example; a client recently said that they were trying to accomplish something in their business and really struggling with the technology and know-how. In other words, it wasn’t working. When they were asked ‘Do you know there are people out there who already know how to do what it is that you are trying to do’, they answered ‘yes I do’. Then they were asked ‘well, why haven’t you hired one of them?’ and the answer was that ‘they didn’t have the money to pay them and can’t afford it right now’. The question is ‘can you really afford not to hire someone’. Because you don’t need the money until after you’ve made the decision, they way to get the money to do whatever it is you need to do will show up, but not before you’ve made the decision.
Everybody has the experience of where they needed something they didn’t have and they were able to get it once they’d made the decision to actually do it. It happens in all areas of our lives and money is no different.
Choose today to start making decisions based on whatever it is you need to grow your business or increase an area in your life and happiness. Make the decision first and let the how materialize.

Are You Ready To Free Yourself Today!
Imagine how free your life would be if you didn’t have to think about money. Just how many decisions do you make based from a financial standpoint as against whether you want them or not? In most cases you look at the price tag – right?
But it’s so much nicer to go through life and to say ‘I want that, I want to go on that trip, I want to go to that island, I want to have that new car or I want to have that amazing pair of shoes’.
I’m not talking about not being responsible for money or not managing money because that’s important. You still have to do that. But as far as doing the things that you want to do, by thinking of it in this way then you’re not making them based on a financial decision. And as far as the Law of Polarity is concerned, the money is already there.
The first step is to accept responsibility for your life and to come from a position of entitlement. If you’re coming from a place of being a victim to your outside world where you believe that you deserve that everybody needs to do things for you and yet nothing ever gets done then you’re never going to be in the right mindset in order to bring the wealth in.
So here’s what you need to know:
i. There is more money to go around for everybody.
There’s enough money for everyone. And you can have as much money as you want and it doesn’t take anything away from anybody for you to have money.
ii. You get money by giving things.
Start off by giving who you are. The polar opposite of getting is giving. Most people enter into all kinds of business situations, networking situations, marketing situations from the aspect of getting instead of giving. And once you come from the perception of giving, it changes your perception so much so that you begin to see the opportunities that are right there in front of you to acquire as much money as you could possibly want.
So make a list of at least 10 things you would like to do right now. What would you do? Where would you go? How would you travel? Where to? Who would you take with you? What might you buy? Where would you live?
Now let your mind wander … and work out the how. Free yourself from ever making another financial decision and your life will be enriched.
The Law of Polarity In Business
Is it possible to accelerate your success? Why do some people find it easy and others struggle?
It’s all to do with the Law of Polarity, which states that everything in the universe has an opposite and it’s equal in opposites. In other words, when you come across someone who has a desire or a need for any amount of money and they don’t have it, what they can’t see is that the money is right there for them already in their lives. They’re just not seeing it.
As far as the Law of Polarity is concerned, there is a pressing need for money and the opposite of this is that the money is already there – it’s just invisible to the person right now. The toughest part when somebody doesn’t have any money in their life and there is this huge pressing need to have money for whatever it is they need it for, then it’s difficult to get this understanding across to them. Because for the Law of Polarity to do it’s work, there is a need to keep an open mind that the money is already there and understand that it is only their belief system that is telling them they don’t have any money.
The first part of understanding the Law of Polarity is to understand that what they’re seeing in their life has everything to do with their belief system. They see what they believe and they don’t see what they don’t believe. So the idea is about starting to change their belief system so they can see the money.
Napolean Hill in ‘Think and Grow Rich’ calls this the sly disguises of opportunity. He says ‘when the opportunity came, it appeared in a different form and from a different direction’ than he’d expected. It’s one of the tricks of opportunity. It has a sly habit of creeping in the back door and is often disguised in the form of misfortune or temporary defeat. He goes on to say that, ‘perhaps this is why so many people fail to recognize opportunity – the opportunity for them to extend products and services and then, receive money for them.
So many people working in their own businesses do not see the opportunity until they have changed their belief system and that is the big challenge. Because when there is a need to change the belief system, it’s often where people get frozen or they don’t want to take the next action step. In other words to become of themselves they have to want to step up to the opportunity in order to grasp it.
Napolean Hill describes it in this way by saying ‘sometimes it comes in misfortune or temporary defeat because the fact that they have to make changes that are uncomfortable for them, it appears unfortunate’. They’ve got to do things that they’re already programmed to be uncomfortable with. Most of the people around the world are programmed with the idea of working for a living. In other words ‘go and get a job of some kind’. They are employed by someone else. The rules and values and beliefs that actually help a person thrive in employment to another individual are totally contrary to the rules, values and beliefs that an entrepreneur has in order to extend great service and make money.
So part of the process for an entrepreneur is to identify what their beliefs, rules and values are which are working like an operations manual in their lives that are preventing them from getting the things they want and then seeing it and recognizing it and having it flow into their lives really effortlessly. Now when I say effortlessly, this does not mean without having to do some work!
We all have 24 hours every day and we all do something within those 24 hours. So you do have to be very critical about what you do during those 24 hours. But when the belief system changes, the money and the results start to flow into the person’s life, very effortlessly.
In other words, they will still do work but the work that they do is likely to have changed to work that they love. They may have found their life’s purpose. Sometimes individuals’ change may be in the passion they feel for what they do. Or it might be in their relationships or in their jobs. Whatever it is, the results they are getting will be very different to those they had with their previously limiting beliefs.
So start by looking beyond the ‘I haven’t got the money to do this’ and focus on making the invisible visible.
Is Getting Rich Really A Science?
And if so, can anyone master it?
Getting rich is sometimes referred to as a science and if so, why do so many people struggle with getting rich? After all, there are a number of people who study science but they aren’t rich.
With science you can take any result, look back and then figure out what the causes were in order for that result to happen. And then this same result can be repeated in a laboratory to achieve the same result. There’s an exact science to it.
And the same applies to getting rich. If you take any person who is financially wealthy, there’s an exact science to it. You can look back over the steps in what they did with themselves first, and then with their external world, second. And find out exactly what they did and duplicate it with any person.
Simple! Or perhaps not …
Let’s look at these two stages. There’s the internal work first, followed by the external work. What happens is that most people focus on the external work such as getting a job or finding some way to make money, whereas what they should be focusing on is the internal work to get their mindset in the right place to receive and manage their money.
Of course, money itself isn’t the problem although often we see it as being the problem because we don’t have enough. And it’s sometimes said that rich people are filthy rich – that’s bad then isn’t it? And not everyone who has a lot of money has accumulated it by doing good. People can be rich because they’ve robbed a bank or stolen from others. While many people do good with their money and help others through the money they’ve accumulated. Either way, there will be a scientific pattern which can be traced back as to how each person got to be rich.
So, if getting rich is a science why isn’t it taught at school so we can all benefit from it? I mean it certainly wasn’t on the curriculum at my school, or indeed any others that I know of.
The reason is that from the moment we’re born in our current society most of us are taught that to get everything we desire in life then we must go out and get it. In other words, it’s separate from ourselves, we don’t possess it, and we have to do things in order to deserve what it is that we want. And then, we have to go out and actually get it. In other words, we have to do something to get that money or to get that happiness, or to get those results in life.
But when we have to get, the perception inside of ourselves is that we don’t already have it. So, then you’re looking through your eyes with this perception from a place of lack. In other words, I don’t have it; it’s always something that I have to get. And what happens is that money then eludes most people.
The truth of the matter is that there are more people on this planet that do not have a belief system about making money come into their life easily than there are that are. It’s only a very small percentage of people who have a belief system that allows them to acquire money relatively easy and in great abundance in their lives.
What is it that makes the difference?
The first step is to accept responsibility for your life. If you are coming from a place of entitlement that you are deserving of any amount of money. The other side of this is that many people come from having a victim mindset and that of poverty. If you’re coming from a place of being a victim to the outside world where you believe that everybody owes you something or needs to do things for you and yet, nothing ever changes or gets done, then you’re not in the right mindset to bring the wealth in.
So, some quick things you can do …
i. Make the decision to take responsibility for your life.
ii. Check out your mindset – where are you coming from?
iii. How deserving are you? Do you deserve to be rich?
Explore these points from as many different perspectives as you can and you will have made a start on your inner work towards a wealthy life.

Soul values are quite fascinating. And yes, you might ask what exactly are they as they’re not something that’s spoken about very often.
Soul values are the things that you value more than anything else. They are the things that resonate with your soul base on your current level of development.
They’re the things that are your happiest moments, the feelings you feel in your happiest moments and the feeling behind what you feel, they’re really your internal compass. Your soul values dictate how you live your life and this is the most important part, what brings you pain and what causes you elation.
When you do things based on your soul values then you become a higher ordered system. But when you look at your past it’s often the case that it’s not in alignment with your soul values
So first of all you have to know what your soul values are so that you can become a higher ordered system.
Now, here’s the thing about wealth … wealth always flows to the higher ordered system, to the most whole being.
For example, look at any national or international stock exchange, they’re all highly ordered systems. They have very complete processes, they have full understanding of every part of that system, it’s organized, it’s systematized, it’s tested, it’s integrated, and it works. It all works in harmony.
And why is that? What happens? Well, wealth comes into that system because people and wealth move to higher order. As human beings we always move to a higher order, such to the extent that if you don’t begin to place that order in, you will automatically lower your ordering system. You become a less ordered systems and as such wealth moves away from you.
And I will mention forgiveness here as its a wonderful thing as well. But, forgiveness implies that there had to be a victim. And now, you have to be a forgiver of the situation versus integrating it into your life and seeing what possible benefit you had from it. There’s no forgiveness because there’s just pure understanding.
There’s pure understanding that everything, at some level, has a benefit in your overall development. But it’s only when you move to that higher level.
So, the greatest pain that you have in your life is when you’re disconnected from your soul. The soul is the highest aspiration of your being, it’s the greatest order in your life.
Marcus Aurelius, the emperor of Rome and a philosopher said, “If you’re distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself but to your estimate of it. And this, you have the power to revoke at any moment.” In other words, pain is inevitable; suffering is optional.
What you have to understand is that wealth is a highly ordered system. If you look at any system, the financial system, it’s all very structured.
But can you imagine how you’d be if for instance, you had some money to invest and you made an appointment to see a financial adviser. When you arrive at the office you are kept waiting. Then when you go in to discuss your affairs the person is flipping through a pile of folders trying to find your information. Then they drop some papers on the floor and start sifting thought these saying “I know it’s in here somewhere”. Then they start going through their briefcase which is stuffed full of old receipts and rubbish. Then finally, they find your folder which had fallen under a table in the corner. You look at your information which is loosely stuffed into a coffee-cup stained folder. And some of your information is not up to date or missing. Would you want to invest with this person knowing their system is a complete mess? Surely not!
But in many cases that’s how we’re running our lives because we haven’t integrated our past with who we really are in our soul values.
And so, wealth always goes to the highest order, so, just as I wouldn’t give wealth to that individual because I wouldn’t trust them with that wealth. It’s the same way that you’re dealing with it in your own life.
And it doesn’t matter what wealth we’re speaking of because if you say, well, money is not important to me. If you have values, natural talents and abilities but when you disown those parts of you or hold fragmented ideas of your past and you haven’t integrated them into your life, you subvert your own genius and that’s exactly why we have guru-ism or guru worship.
There’s so many people following gurus and wanting to be just like them. And in many cases you decide you’re going to follow them for 5, 10, or even 20 years and by studying their teachings that you will hopefully become like them. But what is happening is that you are denying yourself from becoming a leader and doing what you love best, sharing your gifts and talents with the world based on your own personal soul values.
And so we know that we have this higher order and that wealth is attracted to this higher order. Doesn’t it make sense at this point to align your life to that higher order. And instead of looking at your past and seeing what’s holding you back, taking your path, aligning it with your soul values and your truth. And then, you and your mission and your destiny become timeless.
And the more you can attach yourself to things that are in a more timeless state, the more wealth that you can draw in. The more you want to create things that change the broader scope of humanity and you can hold a bigger picture of time in your mind, the more wealth you can create, the more wealth you will draw to yourself.
So, if you have a big vision, your life becomes really easy. On the other hand, if you have a small vision, your life becomes really hard. Because the big vision pulls you through and with that you can do just about anything. And wealth and people of a higher caliber, of higher order systems start to draw you in because you then become of a higher order.
Dr. John de Martini says, “Plants grow to the sun, because the sun is a higher ordered system than the plant system.” So, you will always naturally move to the higher ordered systems when you are aligned with your soul values.

We live in a world where everything is based around monetary values. And when we talk of wanting to live a wealthy life and we tend to link this to money in so much as if I have enough money to do all the things I want to do … then I’ll be happy.
Yes, a wealthy life does include a money element as you do have to live. But there are people out there telling you to visualize money arriving through your mailbox. Or sit back and imagine bank notes raining down on you. And recite an affirmation along with this to make it seem real.
Unfortunately that’s a very random approach to wealth, because if you just believe the universe is going to bless you and make you wealthy, you’re basically not sowing first. You’re trying to reap without sowing. That’s what you’re doing if you are imagining money arriving without your taking the necessary actions for it to arrive.
I love the definition that ‘wealth is the ability to get what you value by being of service to others’.
And did you notice that I didn’t say ‘money’? The reason I’m pointing this out is that some people have the idea that wealth is just having money. Let’s look at it this way. If for instance, you get a job and earn £500,000 a year, most people will be happy with that. But what if your highest priority was your family life and bringing up your children and your job is taking up six days a week and most evenings. Would that be wealthy for you?
It wouldn’t be wealth, it would be a real detriment because for you wealth is raising your children and having that family experience.
So on the other hand, if someone wasn’t that concerned about family life but they had a complete desire to build monetary wealth, then if they were able to have a job like that, they’d be very happy. It wouldn’t bother them.
So, wealth is based on what you value.
Now, here’s the key and remember this. You’ll never build wealth until wealth aligns with your true values. You’ll never build wealth, meaning you’ll never get the thing that you want, be it money or relationships or whatever else, until that thing that you want is in alignment with your current value system.
Wealth comes from the Latin root for “well-being,” it’s complete being, it’s one being.
The way to build a wealthy life is to start by identifying your true values and how you can use these in a way that serves others. This in turn will bring in the monetary aspect that will allow you to lead your wealthy life doing what you love.
Start by building every area of your well-being including relationships, health, fitness, social, dietary, money … and start to increase your overall well-being.

Can you imagine how it would be if you had a light switch that you could turn on whenever you wanted to and it would light up your life and business? How would that make you feel? What might it allow you to do?
Would it change how you viewed your past? Would it make a difference to how you view your future? Would it change how you currently create wealth?
I’m going to share that light switch moment with you … because it really does exist!
But first, there’s a very special definition of wealth that I’d like to share with you and how you can build that wealth in your future. And the definition is this, “Wealth is the ability to get what you value by serving others”.
And it’s often said by many business and spiritual leaders that ‘everyone deserves to be wealthy’. And if you follow what they teach and do what they do then you will receive the rewards they have. But the problem with this something that’s called guru-ism is that you often end up getting stuck following people instead of being leaders and realizing that you have the same traits that those people have. And you can do the same things those people have in your own way, but in a way that’s aligned with your true values, rather than theirs.
So, it’s all about connecting the parts of yourself to your true values. You need to be building your life and business around your soul values. Those things that are true for you.
Remember, that you are here to do something unique and that sometimes it might seem so daunting that even you can’t even imagine achieving it. But it’s often the very thing that people may be telling you is impossible for you to do, is the very thing that your soul may be calling you to do, the very thing that may be your destiny to do.
So start today and explore what has meaning in your life for you … and what you were destined to do.
