What is the greatest personal fear among most people? If you said the oft presented public speaking, you’re wrong! That’s second. The number one fear is “Making Money”! This is a proven time and again. I won’t go through the scientific gobbledegook, but just ask you to talk about money. What comes out of your mouth? How often do you talk about money is how much of money you understand about it. It’s not even a daily thing is it? And when you do, I can say that for more than 99% of you, it’s about paying something and you’re not happy about it. Therefore you do not speak about money.
The fear of making money (not money itself) is a widespread fear. In fact if this is an illness, it must be the worst pandemic ever in the history of humans. It’s no wonder that this habit borne fear is taught. It is instilled in most societies on the planet since birth. And you wonder why you are fearful. How this fear based message is disseminated is very well orchestrated. Just look around you. There are messages of negativity everywhere.
8 Ways Messages Of Fear Is Spread
Reports in newspapers are often closely crafted, but highly focussed on Bad News. A disaster somewhere in the world, a war, a giant tsunami or people dying in large numbers somewhere makes many pages of the most valuable newspaper space. You can’t help but see and read it. But worse, great successes are often downplayed or not reported at all. Yes, newspapers do report on factual content like the stock market, but stories usually have that bad news. It makes the world appear very violent.
Is it just me or is television really addictive? Many years ago it was called the boob tube because of its shape. Now it’s more likely to be known as the hypno-box. The television has the ability to capture attention like nothing before it. The sounds, the visuals and the emotional words, along with the subliminal messages implanted combine to make this a very powerful medium. Then comes the news which again, like the newspapers, is heavily slanted toward bad news. Even the movies they play tend not to tell the truth but portray sensationalism. The Disasters sell. People who watch a lot of TV are basically brainwashed!
3) Subliminal Messages
They come in many guises based on auto suggestion. Look carefully at carefully placed ads of the giant companies like Coca cola, MacDonalds, the TV stations, the telephone companies and even government. These are everywhere from streets, the train stations, the busses, television, movies, sporting events, the internet…you name it! These ads combine to hypnotise you into auto suggestion that what you are living in now is your own natural thinking when they are literally making you think their way!
Well, a sticky message. If I mention it, I feel oppressed. If I don’t mention it, I feel like I’m being silenced through guilt or being politically correct. For many centuries, religion (and even to this day) was used to control the entire citizenry by placing the violent fear of god into every king, merchant and serf. They dictated what you could say, think or become. This was (and still is in some parts of the world) slavery at its most dominant. But in more modern ‘freer’ thinking worlds, their messages can be at odds still, but at least, we are more able to think outside of that box.
What the powers that be say they teach, they will do their bidding. As it is, after many years of systemized training and dissemination of schooling information, the status quo does not change. I am rather tired of being created to be the drones of a future society that does not exist. I’ve been told to think, do and obey dictates in a certain way. I’m tired of it. Doing all that meant I ‘appeared rebellious’ when in fact I am only following my dreams. I don’t consider my children drones in a lifestyle that is fast disappearing. I prefer to make my own good news and not live by any ‘norm’ that puts me into a mould.
War! Terror! Or at least the threat of it. There is always something, a far mightier power being held over our heads. There is always the threat of a greater army that can annihilate you or your country. Your way of life that you’ve come to love may no longer be so idyllic or even exist. Therefore whoever holds the gun calls the shots…literally. You obey reluctantly, kicking and screaming and even daring the laws to do their worst. However, at the same time you live in fear. Well, many still want to think that the military is protection. Protection from what? This is what more arms and weapons with a military that is far larger than necessary can become. Our human history has prove it through time and all over our planet.
7) State Control
Elections are supposed to be the time and opportunity for us, the populace to choose whom we wish to Represent us. However, it appears more and more whom we choose have become our rulers. Is something amiss here? One would have thought to be living in a false pretension. I would have thought the rule of a singular person is supposed to have been replaced by the rule of an elected governing body. But why is there so much violence against the protesters of things being done by governments that are not acceptable?
8) Societal Habit
Habits are learnt. Is it any wonder that all the controlled habits of the populace have been trained into us all? They are often called societal norms. So what’s outside of the norm? Well, it appears to be anything not yet done by a majority. If so, then why are so few dictating to so many what must be done and as we fail spectacularly to become and maintain that prosperity? Look at the incredible spending of everyone from the state to the individual, as we all end up in insurmountable debts. Well, ok, the government and their small number of supporters print more money and we all pay with inflationary agonies of living on far less for our money. I much prefer to have my own mind and my own way of life. Live in abundance and in peace. That makes me so much happier. Or is that too much for those who would try to be my and your masters.
Making Money Is A Lost Habit
So, let’s get back to the making money. And you wonder why you have been so fearful of it. The media has been promoting the fear of speaking and playing it up. And unfortunately, for many years, I believed them. But really, it makes us so docile from fear itself. Making money appears to be such a difficult challenge only because we have been falling prey to believing it is difficult.
Tell me, is picking up a pile of trash so difficult if you got paid for it? How about simply running a few errands like a kid does and you pay him or her. Did you cringe when you gave your life savings to a broker? He or she can make a lot of money. You charge rent for a little space to someone. Lending money or equipment to someone and then getting paid in return is making money. I still remember picking up shells for stores and making some pocket money. I raised tropical fish and made some cash.
It is like this simple culture was lost to us. Making a living or making money has been trained out of society. It is a strange behaviour to many and therefore frightening. We have been trained to work like drones in government supported functions or organisations and that is the only thing that is alright. But really look outside that prison of thought. Making money is never as difficult as you think it is supposed to be.
