A Prayer for Flood Recovery and the Calgary Stampede   1 comment

CS-1We ask all of the land
and all of the people,
all of the homes and the businesses,
all of nature and the animals and the birds
and all of the waters
to be calm.
 
We ask that the great blessings and miracles be present
in each moment
and in each breath.
And like the great breath that comes from the Creator,
we ask for the winds of miracles to come through this land,
to dry out everything perfectly,
keeping everyone safe.
 
We ask that the great stamina,
speed and synchronicity
happen for this city and for everyone involved
so that all of the preparations for this great celebration of the Calgary Stampede
can go on not only as normal
but as great
and miraculous
that everyone within this city and everyone upon the land that has been affected
by this flood
now experiences the miracle of this land,
the great abundance of this land,
the fertile fields
and the great harvest
the abundance of joy and great happiness
and health and healing
the joy of great successes in life
of camaraderie and compassion.

How I Changed a Habit Without Even Realizing it   1 comment

decisions_universe‘Tis the Season for Resolutions…

by Kandis Twa

738 days; that is how long it has been since my last drink. I know this number-not because I am a recovering alcoholic-but because my ‘last drink’ was a particularly memorable occasion. It was News Years Eve 2011, I was in Paris and the drink was a glass of champagne offered to me by a stranger on the Champs-Élysées. I feel proud that my drinking days ended on such a high note. As a number of my friends embark on a “Sober January”, I thought I would share with you my story of how one month of sobriety turned into many.

I used to really like drinking, I would even tell you I was pretty good at it, so when I decided to stop, it was an unexpected decision for myself and those that know me. I would probably classify my drinking days as fairly average. Average as measured by a relative scale to those around me and my circumstances. Fittingly, university was certainly a peak consumption period in my life, followed of course, by a serious decline rate upon entering the working wold. So after years of being a fairly typical drinker, why did I suddenly make an unusual decision to stop? Honestly, I just didn’t feel like doing it anymore. That’s it. It wasn’t about my health, or the cost, or because I liked it too much-this was not a fear or shame motivated choice. Not at all, I was just finished. Read the rest of this entry »

Magical Christmas Chaos   Leave a comment

Rising Above to Truly Enjoy the SeasonChristmas ornaments on bush

by Kandis Twa

Christmas is a magical time of year however it can also be an extremely challenging time of year for many of us.  Why is this, and why do we seem to lose the magic of Christmas that we know is at the heart of the season?

We celebrate Christmas to commemorate the birth of the prophet Jesus Christ.  And while we know that Jesus was actually born somewhere closer to March or April, this time of year is still very special. Every year as we come to the end of our calendar cycle the Earth is also completing a cycle. Each year as the Earth completes its annual orbit around the sun it resets its energy. Similarly, every cell within your body also resets its energy on the new year. As we approach this time of year each one of us is in the last stages of a cycle of integration. We are integrating all of the changes we have experienced over the year in preparation for a new beginning.  It is really worth a moment to reflect on the year that you have had and all of the differences in your life over the last year. You are integrating all of that right now.  With this piece of information you can see that everyone has a lot going on!

What I’m Really Thinking on Facebook   Leave a comment

ImageA Positive Social Revelation

by Kandis Twa

Ok, full disclosure, I’ve been on Facebook and had all of the following thoughts: I do not like that haircut, those are terrible shoes, there they go bragging again, that’s a bad baby name, who cares about your dog. These, and many other thoughts which I am not proud of have gone through my head! So, I’m going out on a limb here but, I don’t think I’m alone. What’s more, is that I know this is very grade six behaviour but I believe that this kind of thinking is so habitual that we don’t realize firstly, how much we engage in it, nor that it has a huge impact on our lives. So here’s why you may want to be really honest with yourself and pay attention to what you are thinking as you scroll and click you way through your friends latest posts.

May 2012 Market Update   Leave a comment

What I’m Buying, Selling and Why

by Jas Malcolm

Gold and Silver are both weakening with gold almost freefalling these last couple of days. It is interesting to see Silver holding up much better than gold, as anticipated. I hope that people heeded my reflections and exited the stock markets as these markets are really looking dangerous.

I’ve sold almost 100% of my gold and silver stocks. I’m taking losses but that is my choice. Take losses and make a new choice. As I sell I continue to average in to buying silver in the Sprott Mutual Fund and Trust units mentioned in Februrary. I will continue to average in from now until July 15th unless I see silver reversing and going higher in which case I will accelerate my rate of purchasing. I average in because in these manipulated markets I have no way of fundamentally knowing when silver should go up, or when the government will bring it down. Therefore every week I buy more on down days.

Nothing has changed from my comments in January and February. I believe gold, and more so silver, are the way to preserve ones wealth and grow it this year, however, there are powerful government forces that see gold and silver as the competition for their fiat currency system, and rightfully so. So although gold and silver can go down short term, and in fact are, it doesn’t change my belief that they will end the year much higher. To me that is all that matters. I buy what I believe and then go do other things. I don’t want to have to watch my investments on a daily basis and distract me from my homoluminous path.

I reiterate that we are just starting to see the markets roil and rollover, IMO. Before this is over the DOW and S&P and other stock markets could be down thousands of points.

You could just sit in cash to preserve wealth rather than be in the markets, but by cash I do not mean bonds. Short term treasuries maybe but it can never make you money. Having said that just ‘not losing money’ is winning in an environment of systemic failure, which I believe we’ve now enterred.

I have also taken steps to convert my margin accounts to cash accounts. I believe we could see market failures this time around. I wish to avoid any potential of my segregated accounts being accessed by my brokerage.

I really feel one has to be very cautious. Even with my Sprott silver investments I have to be cognizant that the markets could be closed for a period of days and I would not be able to access my accounts to liquidate them.

I wish to re-iterate that what I write is not advice. It is what I am doing at this moment in time. Each person must take responsibility for their own information and decisions. If you are a person who is emotionally attached to these markets, and if you aren’t going to be accountable for what actions you take, then this could be a difficult learning experience. None of us has ever experienced what humanity is going through this year, and the markets are a reflection of the emotioinal state of humanity.

Blessings and joy are your eternal assets.

Gold as a Productive Investment   Leave a comment

Why Gold is a Love Based Investment

by Jas Malcolm

I’m going to reproduce a portion of an article that Fortune Magazine printed of an interview with Warren Buffet. As the reader knows Warren Buffet is one of the richest men in the world and has achieved this through very successful investing. I believe anything he writes is worth reading and reflecting upon.

Allow me to set the stage. The article in its entirety suggested that people avoid investing in bonds/paper savings and such.  It then went on to tell us why gold was not something he believes in (excerpt reproduced below), and Warren concluded that an investor’s best investment is in producing assets. As you know I’ve been an advocate for investing in gold and silver for some time so clearly Warren and I don’t see eye to eye on this. Let’s give him the first opportunity to talk shall we.

A New Article on the Changing State of the Financial System

by Jas Malcolm

We have a  new featured article for you, titled “Prosper with Your Savings” to download for free. This one involves the ever popular topic, “your personal finances in a financial world that is literally falling apart”.  Most people, rightfully, want to know how to enjoy life without worry of losing their life’s savings with the ongoing breakdown of the world financial system. In our  2008 book Who’s in Control of the Powerful You and Why that’s Changing addressed, in advance, the 2008 collapse of the world financial system.  In the 2010 third edition of the book,  Jas forecasts that the financial market will appear to stabilize and then collapse further. Jas believes that 2012 is the time of “collapse further”. This article is dedicated to that poignant topic, and what you can do about it.
