Shining Your Light in a Time of Great Economic Despair

- A Christmas Day to Remember
For Jacob Selini, Christmas was only about the food. It wasn't until he met some extraordinary people that his view of Christmas changed. Love, compassion, and forgiveness were the missing ingredients of his Christmas story.
The Economic Storms
With companies laying people off in record numbers, mom and pop establishments going under, families losing their homes, schools laying off well-needed teachers, it is hard not to be upset by the economic state of this country.
My heart goes out to those affected by this economic crisis.
Imagine dedicating forty plus years of your life to a company to only be terminated because they found a person to do the job for peanuts. What does this say about loyalty? What does it say about dedication? Nothing, when you are a company that only focuses on dollars and cents!
To me that doesn’t make sense! We are spiritual beings, not mechanical machines!
I feel very sad when I see a mom and pop business go under. It is hard for them to stay in business when competing with large corporations that pay their employees slave wages, get special tax incentives, and employ slave labor to make their products.
That house that you’ve been paying steadily for twenty years is no longer yours, because you cannot keep up with the payments, due to the fact that you were laid off. It didn’t matter that you were the hardest worker in the company. It didn’t matter that you did the job of three people. In the company’s eyes, you were only a number. You were replaced with a minimum waged worker.
The teacher that made a huge difference to the lives of her students did not matter when it came to budget cuts. We are told that our children are our future, but with every passing year they cut more and more, and we are at the point in which there is nothing left to cut. What can we do during this economic crisis?

Being compassionate is very important during this economic crisis. How would we feel if we were one of the individuals that have been deeply affected by the crisis? I know that at some level we are all affected by this.
We can do a lot by sending our loving energy to those affected by these rough economic times. This may not cure their economic woes, but it may help to ease their pain.
Treat others with kindness. Kindness goes a long way to make a difference in someone’s life. An act of kindness has the power to shift a person’s emotional state.
There is also the option of sharing. We can share our time, love, items, and services with others. I have noticed that more and more people going back to bartering.
If we have the money and resources, we can create jobs by starting our own business. Imagine how freeing it would be to have your own business. You can run it the way you want to run it!
We can also pray, meditate, and visualize. These things have been proven to make changes.
Form your own group. This might be a "Law of Attraction" group, visualization group, prayer group, meditation group, and so on. Use your imagination.
Miracles can happen if you believe.
You are the Miracle
The Magic Formula
Amazing things happen - miracles - when large groups of people come together.
It only takes the square root of one percent of the population to jump start a change. If this number of people all focused on prosperity and abundance, we would begin to see amazing results. Of course, the more people involved the stronger the effect.
