Scared About Money and Finances?
January 15, 2014
I remember a time in my life when I had no job, no prospect of a job, and my rent was due in NYC with no food in the refrigerator and no money in the bank. That was the lowest low I’ve ever encountered. How did I deal?
Money and jobs are like everything else in life, they are expressions of your internal thinking. If you have a negative belief about yourself, you will be hard pressed convincing anyone else to hire you. If you believe you are destined for poverty, the likelihood of you landing a job that pays a lot, will be small. If you believe your gift to life is little, the expression of yourself in life will be small.
So, the work that you have to do is internal as much as external. I’m not saying, stop with the look for the job and concentrate solely on your internal growth. That would be foolish. But, my precious friend, until you see yourself as successful, you will probably never be a success. Why do you think that a person who is a millionaire might lose every cent he or she has, then a year or two later, that same person has a million again? This is because that person sees himself/herself as a millionaire.
So, what did I do when I was in NYC without a penny? I prayed for help. I saw a clear vision that there was a job for me. I was to go to the Actor’s Equity building, 21st floor, and look at their job postings. The third page was the one I was to apply for. The dream was very specific.
When I got to the interview, the owner and I got along famously, but he told me he had just hired a man for the job an hour before. He shook my hand and bid me goodbye.
About fifteen minutes later I got a phone call. The owner had told the man he hired that he was unable to fulfill his promise and he gave the job to me. From that job, many other opportunities came forward in my life—acting, singing, recording, and teaching. I will always remember that day.
So, if you find yourself in the position I was in, there are two spiritual things to do: Wait in the silence for God to speak and reach into your deepest self and find out why you feel you don’t deserve success.
On the physical side of things, simply don’t let a door close without researching and finding out if you are the right person for that job. Apply, apply and apply.
Also, if you haven’t had a professional look at your resume, I’d highly recommend doing so. I have looked at a few and made suggestions. Soon after, a person who had not had much luck with submissions, had more calls than he could handle.
Words are your tools for success in resumes. So, find someone that is a Wordsmith to make your resume sound like you are the best in your field!

A Year to CLEAR Challenge:
(Please Know: You Can Join Us At Any Point in the Year Challenge.)
The masses search outward for things that qualify them as a person, but I always go inward for that which quantifies me for greatness. At twenty-five I preached on street corners in NYC as an in-the-closet Pentecostal minister. One day I heard a still small voice say, ‘God cannot be contained in a book or a law or even in a religion. Dig deeper, reach further to find me, and you will find your authentic Self.’”
A Year to CLEAR Challenge!
The acronym CLEAR stands for (Compassionate, Loving, Enthusiastic, And Relationship-Ready). The goal of this project is to engulf readers in a weekly study that will transform them by removing blocks, promote self-growth, and give them wings to fly freely into daily life. Each week, by going to BoSebastian.com and choosing the Year to CLEAR Challenge tab, a new challenge or thought to provoke conversation, growth, and group functionality.
My vision is to make Finding Authentic You the book to have in your Kindle or on your computer. The book is a comprehensive look at growth—spiritually, mentally, and physically.
As a yoga teacher and student of the Ayurvedic tradition, I bring to the table understanding of physical challenges, the ability to overcome mental problems with Life & Health Coaching, as well as hypnotherapy, and expertise in meditation and spirituality as a minister.
The combination of all three in one book with an interactive connection to like-minded readers, for one year, is what makes this Year to CLEAR Challenge a must-do for every spiritual seeker.
The One-Year Approach to Change
No one believes he or she can change overnight. But success in change comes from the metaphors of nature. Seasonally, life changes all around us in nature. Finding Authentic You offers a gradual change perspective, looking at the triune aspects of change as in yoga: Body, Mind and Spirit.
Accessing the ability to change and finding yourself actually pursuing change must be a daily search, which I call getting to the “observer mind.”
In this frontal cortex of the brain we find the anatomy of change and the power to counter every negative trigger of the human process. The workings of Hypnosis, NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) are all positive actions to help the mind and body flow to a positive space for change.
Every aspect of FINDING AUTHENTIC YOU fulfills this constant need for diffusing the negative past and dreaming of a fulfilling future.
Step 1: Recognize That Change is Inevitable
Step 2: Release from Resistance to Change
Step 3: Understanding Change and Allow Spirit to Define It
Step 4: A History Lesson—About You
Step 5: Look at Your Past with Compassion
Step 6: Making a Strong Commitment to Change
Step 7: Dream Your Fabulous Future
