Of all the locations I ever expected to get in a bit of work, a casino was the least expected… having said that, yes I did bring my computer last night. (Home by 3 am!)
Volunteering for Fund Raising
What work could I possibly do at a casino? Well, internet was jammed for security reasons, but there’s no reason why blogs can’t be prepped when there are some breaks! No cameras either for visual proof, but I have witnesses.
I’ve done this before for a variety of different fund raising groups (theatre company, middle school, as well as the ski club) and the positions assigned to me have been:
- Chip Runner
- Count room
I was a count room first timer & it was by far my favorite role!
If you ever have any doubt that there is abundance everywhere try to have an experience counting a couple hundred thousand dollars in cold hard cash. No digital signal. No electronic tranfer. It was all there in denominations of $100 and lower!
The consideration around abundance would be more about flow… Flow & the avenues of delivery to acceptance.
- Do you have a channel of delivery set up to accept abundance from the Universe?
- What are you doing to nurture this?
- How much focus to you place on that structure versus the anticipated product?
Money aside, the perfect example would be nurturing your network of friends. From this you can see the relational ebb and flow inherent in the energy exchange. Abundance ~ More than just cash… but why not open to that, too?
Choices can be made on autopilot or from a place of active awareness. This foundation directly influences your feelings of empowerment.
Being carried along in an unconscious flow can lead to a sense of powerlessness, depression and feeling invisible. Factors of circumstance, external pressures and overwhelm can move you off your center affecting your ability to choose.
There are some key questions around our choices that can help you establish a baseline:
- Do you like where your life is flowing & what are your priorities?
- Why are you making the choice & are you able to make the choice you want to make?
- What are you feeling in your body about your choice?
Since a cascade of events flows from our choices and generate potential realities, the foundation is key in your manifestation experience. The characteristics of a more optimal personal sensory perspective you look for & feel into when making a clear choice are:
- Steady & stable: You have your wits about you
- ‘Clear air’ & activated: Not smoggy & clouded
- Present & alert: We can take our cues from nature
We enjoyed a brief exercise in visualizing the boundary between ourselves & the chaos around us and the homework for this month is:
For 28 days: Step off the tread mill for at least 10 minutes per day and take some moments of silence to feel into yourself for that place of peace. (Sometimes we find this time / space in unusual ways: Nina: in her closet and Barb: in her car)
Barbara recommended a book by Sonia Choquette called “True Balance”
