Measuring Prosperity

Can you measure prosperity with toilet paper?

How do you think the idea that you might run out of toilet paper unless you bought a huge supply got started?

I remember being warned prepare for the pandemic by having enough supplies on hand to last for two weeks. Paper goods were mentioned as part of those supplies.

Did you start to feel a little bit anxious? I know I did. Apparently some people were more  anxious than others. In fact, they must have been terrified.

Instead of buying what they needed for a few weeks, they bought much, much more. That buying created the scarcity they feared. Suddenly there was not enough for the rest of us, so searching for more became an obsession–even for people who already had a supply.

Is it possible that the belief that you need more and more money to have enough is just as unnecessary as the belief that you need more and more toilet paper to be safe?

If you usually think your prosperity depends on how much money you have, maybe it’s time to think differently. When you reclaim your own energy and start thinking of other possible ways you may be prosperous, you’ll discover that you may be far more prosperous than you imagined.

It Isn’t Fair!

I have recently had conversations with two different, highly skilled, professional women about how their former husbands had cheated them and left them in dire financial straits.

Each woman was, quite naturally, frightened about the future and both were feeling frustrated and exhausted.

One was jumping from distraction to distraction and getting very little done. She told me details of all the ways she had done the right thing in her life but had been so unfairly treated. Her energy was frozen in “this belief that life should be fair” and I helped her release the frozen energy using the Logosynthesis sentences and she immediately felt more focused.

The other was blaming herself for blindly accepting her husband’s deceptions over the years. She was focused and intent on solving her problem, but in the current time of pandemic, nothing was working. Her energy was frozen in “this belief that I should have known what was happening.”  Using that trigger as she said the sentences let her relax and slow down and rest.

In times of uncertainty, it often feels like the safest thing to do is to stick to what you “know” is true. Unfortunately, this may be an old belief that has very little to do with your current situation. Try releasing it and see what happens.

Responding or Over-reacting?

Today I have no answers–only questions about responses and reactions to the forced social distancing so many of us have been experiencing.

I am among the privileged, and you probably are too. I am “locked down” in a pleasant home with electronic contact with most of the same people with whom I regularly interact. I know I am blessed and yet I am sad.

Yesterday, we bent the rules and went for a drive and saw the awakening spring in our beautiful Colorado foothills. I was surprised that my first reaction was tears. I am still not sure why.

Perhaps because experiencing that loveliness tapped into a reservoir of frozen painful feelings of loss I have been trying to ignore while making the best of my own situation.

Realistically, my life works. I am usually happy and productive. And yet my ability to enjoy safe human contact with others will not return for many more months and I am sad.

I use trigger phrases like “this belief that the world should be different” in the Logosynthesis sentences and they help release some locked energy.

Yet I still wonder if the sadness that remains is a way of responding to a longing for the past or just a signal that there is no substitute for the energy of physical contact.
