Nourishing the seeds of sucessWritten by Janet K. Ilacqua
Four laws of Planting Seeds (Enlightened Business Institute) Positive seeds cause pleasure; Negative seeds cause pain Seeds expand and grow EXPOTENTIALLY Seeds not planted cannot bring a result Seeds planted must bring a result
Nurturing seeds of success The key ingredient to nuturing seeds of prosperity is paying attention to environment in which you conduct your business, people you associate with, and your conduct, both in your business and personal life . The law of Karma will always bring it back to you in a worse manner. In some lines of Buddhism it is believed that every time you lie many of your brain cells die, as they are made to think and believe something that’s is not true. In turn when brain thinks in reverse there could be a negative effect on brain. We have not yet found any scientific research on this, but it is worth pointing out as a point of reference. “Never Lie. Never tell one lie. If you tell one lie, you will have to eventually tell fifteen more to cover up first lie”; ….According to Jon Barry, a successful real estate management firm and a man of great integrity….one requires a cover of 15 more. In turn, each of these 15 requires 15 more, or 225 lies. Furthermore, each of 225 lies next requires fifteen more. Now we are at 225 times 15, or 3.375 lies. Again 3,375 lie times 15 equals 50,625. And so on. It is a much more productive use of one’s time, energy, and intelligence to always tell truth, to e honest with all people” (Thomas J. Stanley, PhD, ‘The Millionaire mind’ Bantam Books London, 2001, pg. 67)
Developing your prosperity InstinctWritten by Janet Ilacqua
Another way of thinking of prosperity is that prosperity is result of tapping into energy or chi in world. Energy is dynamic, not static. It will always be moving and you must follow it wherever it goes. It will not follow you and you cannot make it go where it does not want to go. Sometimes, it is all around you and all it is a matter of being aware of it. In term of seed planting metaphor, think of chi as nutrients and minerals in soil that will nourish seeds you plant. The better your soil is, less work and investment you will have to put into it in order to make it produce beautiful flowers. You cannot learn prosperity from a book, film or a presentation. Eventually, you must see, feel, hear, touch, and see prosperity. The more clearly we can visualize prosperity, more clearly we can feel, see, hear, and touch it, better chance we have of realizing our dream of prosperity.
Many tools out there can make you aware of flow of energy. Just remember that prosperity resides not in tool but rather in how tool makes you aware of flow of energy in world.
We will discuss three widely used prosperity tools:
Feng Shui Pagan and Wicca Traditions of West Affirmations and Visualizations
Feng Shui examines how energy flow in your living environment is affected by placement of things and objects within it, and how these objects interact with and influence your personal energy flow. Your personal energy flow affects how you think and act, which in turn, affects how well you perform and succeed in your personal and professional life. We cannot fully discuss Feng Shui in this chapter; however, there are several books on Feng Shui out on shelves today.
Feng Shui is a term composed of two Chinese words: feng (wind) and shui (water). Wind and water are two natural elements that flow, move and circulate everywhere on Earth. They are also most basic elements required for human survival. Wind —or air—is breath; without it, we die in moments. In addition, water is liquid of life; without it, we die in days.
These two fundamental and flowing elements have always profoundly, yet subtly, influenced human individuals and societies. The essence of these life-giving life elements is chi or life force. Wind and water are direct carriers of chi, as their flowing quality reflects their essential nature. All living organisms are largely composed of these two elements.
Thus, Feng Shui is art of designing environments in harmony with flow of chi through one’s living space, and this flow supports and enhances one’s personal chi or life force.
The Feng Shui Octagon •The Feng Shui Octagon is an energetic map that applies wisdom of I-Ching to human spaces. Using Octagon, you can divide any definable space into nine sections or areas.
