When all seems hopeless...

It is a sad sign of the times when I am receiving increasingly more messages from people who are in what they perceive as a "desperate situation".

From time to time I receive messages from people who believe their situation is so hopeless that they are contemplating or intending taking their own life.

The situations of these people varies from having a home repossessed, or under threat of repossession, homeless without an income, cannot meet even the most basic living requirements due to the huge increasing costs of electricity, fuel and gas, foods, and other necessities. Often these people have young children to consider as well, which makes their situation seem that much worse.

Now I am not going to comment on the "economy", the "credit crunch", house prices, cost of living, or home budgets etc, and in any case is not really relevant in the great scheme of things, all being human constructs, often for specific agendas that most are not aware of.

So what can you do if you find yourself in this sort of situation?

Well, the first thing to do is fully accept the fact that you brought your current situation upon yourself, and thereby must take full personal responsibility for your situation.

You can say, "Well, it is not my fault that I lost my job, or house prices fell, or loan repayments increased, or the cost of electricity, fuel has escalated in price etc." But the truth is that every single one of us creates and therefore must take full responsibility for our own reality. Whatever situation you find yourself in now is the always the direct result of previous thoughts, feelings and emotions.

Or to put it another way, whatever you are experiencing today originated first as a Thought Form in your Mind, which is subsequently, in accordance with immutable Universal Principles, manifested in to your experiential reality.

The sayings "Change your Mind and change your life", "As a man thinketh, so he is" and "thoughts are things" are absolutely true.

So how then do you proceed, if you find yourself in an unwanted situation?

The first thing you must do is to stop thinking negatively and also to stop allowing any form of negative feelings and emotions.

The Law of Attraction is plain and simple—the more you worry about your situation and "FEAR" for the future, the more you will attract more of the same—every time without fail.

It should be clear to everyone therefore that worrying, fear, anxiety and other negative thoughts couldn't possibly do you any good or resolve your situation in any way.

So the first course of action is to fully and unconditionally accept the fact that you have brought your situation upon yourself, thus to be able to move on by acknowledging and disavowing your present way of thinking to disengage from your present state of reality.

Alternately, take inspiration from Eleanor Roosevelt's most popular quote: "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." In the same way, nothing in the present crisis can leave you defeated without your consent or permission. Believe in a workaround for every stumbling block and you WILL find a way. I've been finding my way since 9/11 and I'm not even American (if I supposed they were the most affected people). Will 2009 be the first GREAT year to a brand new quality of LIFE?

"If you're trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I've had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it." – Michael Jordan

"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed." – Michael Jordan
