Music always soothes my Soul … #LockdownSA2020

… And as my closest family and friends know it is where I always find my happiest place… and it is for this reason I have decided to something I have not done in years.

Well, to be honest, I have not done this since my oldest was about two years old… and technology has changed quite a bit since the ’80s & ’90s. However, this is my short ‘mixed-tape’ dedication to every single person reading my blogs.

We are going through changes in our reality that will affect almost every aspect of our lives… and it might seem that things are not going to get better. The media only make it seem worst every day.

This is precisely why we should keep ourselves in an optimistic (positive) mindset.

Through music (sound therapy) we can uplift ourselves, even change the way we perceive the world around us and our reaction to this perceived world. The Ancient Civilisation had perfected these techniques and through the ages, we have used these techniques in the music we listen to today…. although some might not realise what is happening or scientifically why it is happening … but it is still effective.

Thus, I have decided to get the YouTube links for the songs that have been rolling around in my head for the past few weeks … to create a ‘mix-tape’ message for you!

It’s time that we realise we are responsible for the reality we are living and this is rebalancing, a re-adjustment … Find the blessings in these moments!

Now if these songs and words touched a chord somewhere in you being, I suggest that you should allow these feeling to flow, release it… don’t bottle it up – just let it go!

Sending you good thoughts, prayers of love, virtual hugs & kisses… and for extra measure, good health blessings!

With Love, Gratitude & Grace

S.A. Quote: Education

“When the history of this time is written, education could stand out as the factor which led our country to unity or it may signify the Achilles’ heel through which a troubled yet promising and beautiful country bled itself to a sad end.”

Franlin Sonn, as quoted from The Penguin Dictonary of South African Quotations written by Jennfer Crwys-Williams

Most parents week received those pieces of paper which state how their children performed in accordance with a standardised model of testing all children on their capabilities to perform standardised tasks… and once again a reminder of the classic cartoon strip…

You know – the one where there is seven or eight different animals (monkey, dog, fish-in-a-bowl, bird, elephant …) standing in front of a teachers deck in the middle of the bush with a solemn tree behind them, and the teacher states – “For today’s exam you will have to climb a tree…”

In the past 100+ years, everything around us has been improved. We have found and developed new ways to do everyday general things which we cannot live without… yet our education system is still based on training individuals to comply with a revolution that has almost been completely faded out of existence in our modern society…

Did you know the classrooms as we know them today is the same as it was when ‘formal’ education was introduced for all children at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution… to be trained to sit in rows (specific order – always the same seat, everyday) listen and completing specific instructions, in a set time, to be repeated daily and only be interpreted by a ringing bell to advise on the break times… Thank you, Mr Rockefeller & friends

And although so many things have changed, children in mainstream formal education is still taught information which has been scientifically proven incorrect 10/15 years ago, they are still not taught being taught how to build and manage wealth … yet society accepts these same children to walk out of school and be able to contribute to society.

And to think, these poor children also expect that there will be some sort of J.O.B. waiting for them when they are finished with school… yet for so many, this turns in to a nightmare, instead of the dream they thought it was going to be.

Yet when we look back into history today, we can clearly see how previous generations taught their children and where the masters and guru’s where different… and still we continue on a path of one-size-fits-all. Maybe we should really rethink this approach…

I sincerely hope that when the following generations look back at their history, they are able to see that we as humans are capable of learning from our own history and we can effectively implement changes in our education systems to suit the needs of the next generation … thus providing them with the advantage of a new foundation to build on – instead of crumbling ruins which they must try to mend and fix just to try to keep the roof up and the lights on…

For those who have already gone through our current education system – I bid you, continue your self-education by any means possible… for education provides you with knowledge and once knowledge is implemented it becomes a power in your own hands!

From our side, we provide you with the following to assist you in your own self-studies on how to naturally create your own freedom, meaning and wealth!

Or here are some of our friends and partners’ programs you could join

May you find the education you need to master living an inspired life filled with abundance and prosperity!

Meaning: All About Being a Spiritual Entrepreneur

F.Y.I. This article is related to all Spiritual pathways… not just Christians, replace the word “Christian” with your Spiritual word of choice.

The business world today can be a very intimidating place for a Christian (this is in a reference of spirituality and not religious reference), entrepreneur. You see, business today has gotten to a very competitive point. Money makes this world go round. All over the world, some people would do anything for money.

This fact makes most Christian entrepreneurs afraid. Most think that money will somehow corrupt their morals and interfere with their Christian living. A verse most Christian entrepreneurs keep repeating to themselves is “Money is the root of all evil.” (I Tim. 6:10). However, many Christians fail to realize that there is much more to this verse that changes its meaning.

Financial Independence Coach Show Ep2: How do we Naturally create Freedom, Meaning and Wealth?

Daune Elgin has been quoted in saying: “Simplicity of living means meeting life face to face. It means confronting life clearly, without unnecessary distractions. It means being direct and honest in relationships of all kinds. It means taking life as it is …”

Hazel Henderson stated that … don’t wait for anyone to deputize you or authorize you or empower you. You have to just start with yourself … and put one foot in front of the other.

Rupert Sheldrake said that basically morphic fields are fields of habit and they’ve been set up through a habit of thought, through habits of activity and through habits of speech. Most of our culture is habitual… hence the freedom we want is created daily through our daily habitual activities. Should our activities, thoughts, speech constantly be negatively influenced and we ourselves keep repeating this negativity… we will never be able to create the order needed for freedom to exist.

Want to know what this all has to do with budgets, financial literacy and financial independence … watch the in-studio recording, raw sample.

Meaning: Our Judgement of Others

When you meet a man, you judge him by his clothes; when you leave, you judge him by his heart…

This is a Russian Proverb that had me thinking… How many times in life have we looked at others and judge the way they live or even envied their lifestyle?

But … is that which we are seeing really the lifestyle you would want? Is that lifestyle really so glamorous and without care? Or is it a case of abundance in one part of their life and lack in another?

We should rather take the time to investigate and question the individual directly before judging. 99% of the time our perceptions and judgements are completely incorrect. I have met and worked with millionaires, that has not brought themselves a new outfit or vehicle for the past ten years. In the same breath, I have also met and worked with individuals on the verge of bankruptcy that were driving the latest model of their favourite brand vehicle and wore only the latest fashion trends … but in all cases, the story behind the perspective or is not always a story of a true heart, but rather a lost and wounded soul.

Thus – a word to the wise … don’t judge any book by its cover. The pages might be torn and the cover might be tattered … but the story from cover to cover might just stun your mind and make your soul bleed. Whereas the latest release, still on the shelve neatly sealed in the bookstore … is not worth a second read.

For that matter, do we want to be judge on others perspective of us, instead of the true, naturally authentic individual inside … Just think about it

To our continued success,

Financial Independence Coach Show: Ep2 -Testing format and recording

Stepping into a new project can be daunting, especially when it is a completely new arena. Yes, I have been on YFM … but those three sessions was two over the phone and the one in the studio was not even 10min long. Taking these steps into talk radio is a challenging and existing adventure. After episode 1, we decided to record the full session, to be able to post it on our YouTube channel and start getting content follow there as well. For me, it is a way to measure my personal performance for myself.

When you speak to those who know me intimately, they will tell you that I am actually an introvert. Although I have learned … and mastered the skills to be an extrovert, to the extent that almost everyone I meet is convinced of the fact that I am an extrovert, I am an introvert by nature and nurture.

So much so, when I requested a few close friends, clients and family to review the following recording … one of my friends/clients told me that I am being a hypocrite… a hypocrite? … for preaching to him about being your natural self and here I am being … well an introvert, not my lively, bubbly, energetic and all most overbearing self.

Truth be told … sitting in the studio for me is like sitting in my “cave” enclosed in my research, my studies, my creative process and just following the flow of my natural thought process to come to solutions and resolutions. Admittedly, that is not what this show is all about and should we wish to achieve the aim of this show, I will have to change the structure and my presentation. Ultimately this show is for you, the listener, to assist you to move forward. TO enable you to naturally create your own freedom, meaning and wealth!

Michael, thank you for your honesty and brutal feedback. I promise I will adjust the content to reflect the other side of my personality as well…

Without further delay, here is episode 2 of our new show on BrandLive.co.za

With gratitude,

Yvonne E. Venter-Louw

Meaning – How to effectively change the Relationships with Community, Spirituality, Religion and Self

Meaning?

Living a life of Meaning?

What is a truly meaningful life?

As most of us, I spent the biggest part of my life thus far trying to find out more about creating the meaning of my life that has been and what is to be. Looking everywhere, in relationships, in my studies, in my work … even in the lives of my three ‘miracle-babies’ … and yet, I have failed at finding it for such a long time.
