Balancing Money and Spirituality By Cherokee Billie

balancing money
Money is on everybody’s mind these days, with the plummeting economy and the rate of unemployment, it is difficult not to be focusing on money.

It’s very easy to be spiritual when you have an abundance of money in your bank account and you don’t have to worry about buying the necessities. It is a lot harder to focus on spirituality when you are unemployed or working sixteen hours a day just to be able to buy groceries for the week, pay the mortgage, or buy your kids new shoes. Money becomes your priority at this point.

Nowadays it seems that most religions are teaching that you can have it all. God (the Source) wants you to have Abundance! And if you don’t have abundance then you’re not keeping your mind focused on positive wealthy thoughts. This modern approach to money and spirituality is a lot different then the teachings of the Great Masters.

I find this concept interesting because all of the Great Masters from Jesus to Buddha have seen that earthly wealth as a desire and attachment are detrimental to spiritual growth.

So who is right?

Modern teachings such as, “The Secret” varies greatly from the Great Masters. Within a strictly limited sense both are right. However the balance is extremely hard to maintain.

Given that the Universe and the Source that created it are abundant, it appears correct that you should have the right to expansion and wealth.

Whatever we focus our minds upon, for good or bad, always expands. This is one of the fundamental laws of life.

No matter what anyone tells you to the contrary, making money is hard. It does not come easy to most people. Moreover, making a LOT of money is VERY hard and takes a tremendous level of concentrated focus. It also requires a commitment that is primarily devoted to the outer material world.

Here lies the apparent conflict. The truth is that powerful spiritual development ALSO requires a tremendous level of focus and commitment. It is not a part-time activity either. Moreover, the focus is primarily INTERNAL. It is not that money is intrinsically evil: rather, the accumulation of it is a major distraction because of the level of focus it requires.

Whatever you focus upon expands. If you set your mind upon the external world, this will assume increasing importance in your life. Spiritual growth will increasingly become a hobby or something to be crammed into your spare time. If you vigorously dispute this, ask yourself the following questions.

Do you make sure you get three meals a day?

Do you also make sure that you meditate (or pray) three times a day for the same amount of time?

Do you see the point and the problem? Whatever is most important to you is what you spend most of your time doing and thinking about. This is why most spiritual traditions advise against the external focus, which the pursuit of material wealth requires, although this does not always apply. Notice there’s often a lot of contradictions with spirituality and money. Take for example Bill Gates and Warren Buffett billionaires who have given away most of their fortune to help others. They realized that having great wealth was theirs to share and not hoard. These are good examples of a true balance that we can strive for.

Happily, there can be a satisfactory resolution to this. The first principle is that if you make the spiritual path your primary focus, then you will eventually master laws of the universe that will ensure your abundance forever. If you can truly tune yourself to the ultimate Source of all abundance in the universe, then how can you remain poor in any sense?

The second principal is: Decide from the outset what your true life purpose and priority is. Then determine never to let that balance between spiritual commitment and external effort be undermined. When we work upon an external goal – particularly financial abundance – it is easy to allow that goal to consume an increasing amount of time and mental capacity.

It is possible to be financially abundant while following a spiritual path. However, it is difficult – much more so than most modern development gurus would have you believe. It is for this reason that the great Spiritual Masters strongly discouraged trying to do both.

Moreover, there is no right or wrong. What are one person’s thoughts are another’s illusions. What is right for one person does not fit for another. When we place value, we give it substance. For a monk who has spent all or most of his life as a recluse will have very little in the material sense. However, the value that he places on his meager possessions will give him a feeling of having great abundance. By contrast, the entrepreneur who has spent a lot of his or her life building an empire could very well feel a sense of lack living like a monk, simply because of the value he or she puts on the material aspects of his or her creation and possibly his or herself. It’s down to value and that can only come from you. No two people are alike.

The spiritual aspects of this are determined by how you perceive the world and apply yourself and the material things which are at your disposal. Your intellect (or ego) is the only barrier to achieving greater things and when you begin to understand that you are simply a part of everything, value plays little or no part in your life. This is when you can begin to realize who you are and what you are about. Now your sixth sense clicks into gear and before you know it, you are on the road to progress. Now that’s having abundance!

Are you having a Blue Christmas?

blue christmas
Most everyone has heard the classic song “Blue Christmas” by Elvis Presley. It speaks of loneliness and heartbreak during a time that should be filled with happiness and love. Blue is often used to refer to unhappiness, such as having the blues.

Let’s look at this holiday and see how you can turn a Blue Christmas into a happy time.

It’s that time of year again where everyone starts thinking about the holidays. Who am I going to spend the holidays with? Should I travel and visit my family? What parties am I going to give or go to? What gift should I purchase for friends and family?

As a psychic and spiritual advisor I receive more calls at this time of the year from people who are depressed and lonely, then any other time of the year. They have nowhere to go and no one wants to spend time with them. Sometimes I’m the only person they have to talk to. So many feel suicidal because they feel their life has no meaning. I feel such compassion for these people because I know what it feels like not to have family. My family has all passed away and my friends are scattered all over the world. I’m thankful to be a psychic and able to help people during this critical time.

This year is going to be different than most because there’s not as much money to go around as there has been in the past. Many people will not travel to visit relatives. Instead of giving gifts to people who really are not important, people are going to focus more on giving to those closest to them. For years people have been pressured to give gifts to those they hardly know because that is what you have to do at this time of the year. This year many people cannot afford to give any gifts because of being out of work. No one wants to see their child not have a happy time at Christmas, so many will sacrifice to see their child have joy at Christmas.

Just because the economy has gone down does not mean we need to lose the true meaning of Christmas. What is the meaning? To Find out the Answers Click Here to Read the Full Article.

What is Our Biggest Problem NOW? by Cherokee Billie


The answer is: Fear. Right now people are living in a state of fear because of the economy making a change downward. For decades this situation has been going on, but did not make news until it started hitting the average person’s pocketbook

During the past year I have had more calls about the economy than ever before. Yes, there are problems. But we cannot act in fear. Panic over financial, love or health situations can make you act irrationally and quickly.

The first fear started with the World Trade Center attack on September 11, 2001. People lived in fear that another attack was going to occur right away. Eleven years later we have not had another attack on United States soil and our fear level has gone down. The second was started with oil prices going up. The third was mortgage interest rates escalating to the point that people have lost their homes. Now we see banks closing and there is the belief that we may not have money for tomorrow. The job layoffs are daily and it will continue for some time. The economy is not going to recover quickly. This is where you must not let fear overwhelm you. You can survive on less, as consumers we’re not use to not having the latest clothes, electronics, cars, and homes. It’s time to learn how people have lived through tough economic times before. They did not purchase everything made desired. They learned to make do with what they had.

What makes this economic situation different than the crash of 1929 is the fact that people did not live on credit in 1929. Our economy today is based on credit. So this is really a credit crash. My father came through the depression and he always said, “If I can’t afford something I don’t need it.” He never owned a credit card and would always pay cash for what ever he needed. It’s so easy to spend money with a credit card or a debit card. If you start using cash more you will find that you don’t spend as much. This is one way to stop the panic. Think carefully about what you really need before you buy it. You would be amazed at what you can live without.

With the economic crisis Chicken Little running around screaming, “The Dow is falling, The Dow is falling.” Fear is causing people to panic and the media feeds the panic. Fear keeps people in line and following the actions of those in charge. We must not give in to the fear. Remember that this too shall pass. Realize that you have a hand in controlling your destiny and that you will always have enough to survive.

At this time do not make any quick decisions. If you want to do things well – take your time go slowly. Now is the time to get quiet within you by meditation or prayer and seek guidance from the Great Spirit. The more quiet you become the clearer you can see the big picture. Do not be controlled by the media, economy, government, or politicians.

Think carefully before you purchase anything even down to your groceries. Use wisdom and do not be swayed by the fear of the others. You will make it through this difficult time and surprisingly have learned more than if the economy would have remained stable. In the end you will come out of this a better person.

Think wisely,

Today’s Economy And Your Life

With Food and oil prices on the rise in many parts of the world how has the economic climate affected you?

You have the Power to be Employed or Unemployed.


Every day, as a spiritual advisor, I receive phone calls from old clients and new who are scared because they have lost their jobs. Many have lost jobs that they’ve held for over a decade. Most felt that they would never be in the position they are in now.

Right now this is the reality of the economy and it’s not going to change quickly. Unemployment is the ugly scar of this recession that’ll be the last thing to fade. There are ways that you can beat the odds and find a job or start your own small business. Let’s start with the basics. Click Here To Read Full Article And Watch Video.

What Is Our Biggest Problem NOW?

The Dow is Falling

Chicken Little-The Dow is Falling


The answer is: Fear. Right now people are living in a state of fear because of the economy making a change downward. For decades this situation has been going on, but did not make news until it started hitting the average person’s pocketbook.

The first fear started with the World Trade Center attack on September 11, 2001. People lived in fear that another attack was going to occur right away. Nine years later we have not had another attack and our fear level has gone down. The second was started with oil prices going up. The third was mortgage interest rates escalating to the point that people have lost their homes. Now we see banks closing and there is the belief that we may not have money for tomorrow. The job layoffs are daily and it will continue for some time. The economy is not going to recover quickly. This is where you must not let fear overwhelm you. You can survive on less, as consumers we’re not use to not having the latest clothes, electronics, cars, and homes. It’s time to learn how people have lived through tough economic times before. They did not purchase everything they desired. They learned to make do with what they had.

What makes this economic situation different than the crash of 1929 is the fact that people did not live on credit. Our economy today is based on credit. So this is really a credit crash, as evidenced by people unable to pay the loans on their mortgages. My father came through the depression and he always said, “If I can’t afford something I don’t need it.” He never owned a credit card and would always pay cash for what ever he needed.

It’s so easy to spend money with a credit card or a debit card. If you start using cash more you will find that you don’t spend as much. This is one way to stop the panic. Think carefully about what you really need before you buy it. You would be amazed at what you can live without.

With the economic crisis Chicken Little is running around screaming, “The Dow is falling, The Dow is falling.” Fear is causing people to panic and the media feeds the panic. Fear keeps people in line and following the actions of those in charge. We must not give in to the fear. Remember that this too shall pass. Realize that you have a hand in controlling your destiny and that you will always have enough to survive.

The biggest disguised fear, the one that is at the root of almost all of those fears that block us is Self.

It comes in the forms of Selfishness, Self Centeredness and Self Seeking, mainly and branches out from those, then flows out into all corners and crevices of our daily lives in too many different kinds of fears to mention them all here. As you know we can only find temporary relief by finding a False Key that works.

At this point in our Spiritual journey it is very important to define these three types of self and how they are really fear in disguise. These definitions, as I said above, will be very simple here. You for your own purposes can ponder in more depth how these manifest themselves in your own life and in the lives of those close to you and those who interact with you in your life.

To define Selfishness in its simplest form is: The constant fear that I am not going to have what I want when I want or need it. We can all ponder up many scenarios here.

The simplest definition of Self Centeredness is: Everything is all about me, my plans, and designs. If only everyone and all the things in my corner of the world would be and act the way I wish them to, at least this part of the world would be a much better place.

Self Seeking is probably the most misunderstood of the three. Also it is the most cleverly disguised and therefore causes more things that block the 6th sensor The Spirit than the other two combined. But again to keep it real simple here I will just give a short definition and description of how it manifests itself in all facets of our daily lives.

Self Seeking is; I know beyond any doubt, that if I do for you or act the way you want me to I can get you to do for me and to act the way I want you to.

But as we all know, most of the time that doesn’t hold true, as happens with all forms of fears disguised as forms of self. We are driven by so much self propulsion that we most of the time have no real hope of those things working out right. Also through our own actions we end up putting ourselves in a position to hurt or be hurt. Which of course causes us to become even more Spiritually blocked.

What I do is deliver truth about situations – because truth relieves one of all fears. As its states in the Bible, “The truth shall set you free.”

Blue Christmas

Blue Christmas
It’s that time of year again where everyone starts thinking about the holidays. Who am I going to spend the holidays with? Should I travel and visit my family? What parties am I going to give or go to? What gift should I purchase for friends and family?

As a psychic I receive more calls at this time of the year from people who are depressed and lonely, then any other time of the year. They have nowhere to go and no one wants to spend time with them. Sometimes I’m the only person they have to talk to. So many feel suicidal because they feel their life has no meaning. I feel such compassion for these people because I know what it feels like not to have family. My family has all passed away and my friends are scattered all over the world. I’m thankful to be a psychic and able to help people during this critical time.

This year is going to be different than most because there’s not as much money to go around as there has been in the past. Many people will not travel to visit relatives. Instead of giving gifts to people who really are not important, people are going to focus more on giving to those closest to them. For years people have been pressured to give gifts to those they hardly know because that is what you have to do at this time of the year. This year many people cannot afford to give any gifts because of being out of work. No one wants to see their child not have a happy time at Christmas, so many will sacrifice to see their child have joy at Christmas.

Just because the economy has gone down does not mean we need to lose the true meaning of Christmas. What is the meaning? Giving to others without expecting anything in return. Wow, what a concept. Do you have it in you to give of yourself without expecting anything back?

What I’m talking about is simplifying your life and doing things with those you love that don’t cost much money such as an old fashion Christmas tree decorating party. Not everybody has to buy a Christmas tree; it could be in a church, homeless shelter, a convalescent home or hospital. Everyone can bring some food and think of the great joy you would be creating. Make a party where ever you are.

For family dinners make it a potluck, that way no one is stuck with the financial burden of paying for the entire dinner. Also everyone can share their special dishes and once again it brings more closeness between people. Everyone will be complementing one another on their expertise and closer bonds will be made.

Buy board games, such as Monopoly or the physically fun game Twister, instead of expensive video games and spend time with friends and family connecting through these tried and true games. You’ll find communication opening up and there will be more giving of your self then just giving a present.

Why not take your family and instead of investing in gifts go out and give to those who have nothing. There is such a great need for people to volunteer at hospitals, homeless shelters, veteran’s hospitals, and children’s hospitals. What about an elderly neighbor who has no family living, why not share a meal with them and spend some time talking. Realize most people feel enormous loss at this time of year because of losing so many they have loved and being alone.

Think of the joy you can bring to people by just talking with them. Even if you are volunteering passing out meals, at a homeless shelter, you can take a few minutes after your shift and talk with the different people. Realize they have lost everything and kindness from a stranger can go a long ways.

Christmas is most significant for children, so many wait all year for Santa Claus to bring them what they want most. Some children just want to feel healthy again. Your time visiting these children will lift their spirits and yours as well. If you feel inclined purchase inexpensive little trinkets to pass out to the children, not only in hospitals but at homeless shelters, and missions.

We have become a society that only thinks about ourselves. We have gotten away from the old fashioned values that made our society great. Instead of our modern instant everything world, see if you can’t go back to a time when caring about others was important.

Turn this Christmas mood from blue to glad by showing your kindness to your fellow humans who are passing through this world just like you. Remember the more you give-the more you get. This has never failed.
