Are you a millionaire or (gulp) a billionaire? If so, did you hear the recent news that Bill Gates convinced 38 billionaires to donate half of their wealth to charities? I was very inspired when I heard that, as I have been envisioning ideas like that for some time.
One similar idea of mine is for the people who have really great ideas but no money to be matched with people who have a lot of money but no good ideas. For example, I have a friend who could design an amazingly artistic spa and healing resort, but she doesn’t have the capital to do so. (She not only doesn’t have the money to build such a high vibration resort, but she is in credit card debt, as are many people I know.)
Then take me, for another example. I am doing really great work in many directions, for no pay. Why am I doing that? Because I am following my passions and trusting that the Universe will provide. So far, this has been true, and I trust that it will continue to be true. In June, when I was down to my last month’s living expenses, I surrendered to God and said, “Whatever work you want me to do, I will do. I work for you. You, God, are my boss.” Shortly after that, a very generous person offered to fund my next six months living expenses. Imagine how that boosted my trust in the Universe!
So, I continue to write inspiring, high quality blog articles, lead weekly Radiance Rising Circles, mother my two beautiful boys, cook high vibration vegan meals, give Reiki healings, and do many spiritual practices each day. In addition to all of that, I am looking ahead to how I am going to apply the skills I learned in the training I attended in June through Insight Prison Project.
At that amazing training, Rochelle Edwards (and a team of highly skilled facilitators) taught a curriculum that they use with the prisoners at San Quentin Prison. We spent a whole day inside that prison, and it was so inspiring to witness the effects that the curriculum has had on the men in blue. Soon IPP is going to send me an adapted curriculum that I could use to facilitate healing circles at local youth centers, rehabilitation centers, veterans centers, and possibly the local jail.
I know that I am on the right path, following my central passion: to be of service to many beings. I intend to radiate Light out, in whatever ways the Source of Love asks me to… And I trust that the Universe will support me financially. I know that this is especially true because the Universe knows that I live simply, and that I am wise and generous with money.
Who knows, maybe a millionaire or billionaire will read this blog post, and feel inspired to go to my website store and hit the “Donate” button… anything is possible in this magical Universe! (Note: 10% of every sale and donation on this website is given to Ammachi’s charitable organizations.)
May all beings everywhere have their basic needs covered. May all people have food, clothing, shelter, and Self-Love.
May all beings know Peace and Happiness.
Om Shanti (Peace),
