Tonight is the first night of the Jewish festival of Channukah. I loved this so much growing up – my family would light the Menorah (candle holder) every night for 8 nights, with one more candle added each night until we had all 8 plus the shamus – the source candle used to light the other ones. My sister and I would get presents every night, so we felt sorry for the Christian kids who only got presents once! Now I am more “spiritual” than religious but I maintain the lighting of the Menorah in my home, even when by myself. The symbolism of this ritual holds a beautiful meaning for all of us, regardless of religious or spiritual orientation.
Many people in the healing arts that I talk or correspond with are concerned about the “economy” and the prospect of increasing scarcity of business in the years ahead. Let me give you a very brief version of the story of Channukah, and how this can inspire you to move out of the City of Scare (scare-city):
Thousands of years ago the Hebrews in the area now known as Israel were at war with the Syrians (not far from the case now). The Jewish general, Judah Maccabee, was fighting a valiant fight with his army but was outnumbered by the Syrians, so things looked bleak. During a big battle supplies to the main temple of the Hebrews were also cut off, and there was no way to get oil to the temple to keep the sacred central lamp burning. According to Jewish law, it was imperative to keep the light in the temple burning. At one point there was only one day’s supply of oil, and it would take more than a week to get more oil there because of the war blockades. By a Divine miracle, that one day’s supply of oil kept the sacred light burning for 8 full days. During that time Macabee’s army triumphed over the Syrians against great odds as well. Jews have celebrated this miracle of abundance, how something that seemed small and lacking expanded beyond logical science. So we celebrate the Festival of Light.
This is exactly what can happen in our businesses when we stop looking at the fears and limitations, ignore the media gloom and doom and start being at Cause in our own lives. There is plenty of oil (money) to sustain you and your loved ones through whatever lies ahead, you just need to shift your mindsets and beliefs about where your supply comes from. Want the practical details how to do that? I will offer my New Year webinar on January 4th called Spiritual Marketing. In that I will share the powerful methods I have learned, and use, that have resulted in remarkable results for my business. This webinar will only require an investment of $19, and can bring an unprecedented financial return to you if you use these methods.
