Meditations on Money for the Inner Soul: Understand Road Blocks, Karmic Blocks, and How You Manifest Wealth

Meditations on Money for the Inner Soul: Understand Road Blocks, Karmic Blocks, and How You Manifest Wealth

We live in a time in history in which wealth has taken on a new collective meaning. There are more wealthy people than ever before, and in the collective imagination, we have a newly created vision of a standard of living that we consider our birthright. Credit cards, mortgages, and car loans mean we can experience ourselves as being well-off without it necessarily being based in reality. Whole countries live off debt and fake money. It’s all very confusing when there are still large areas of the world dealing with famine and disease on a scale that is unheard of in what is termed the ”developed” world.

The inequality and illusory nature of wealth are not the only reasons to be wary of its seductions. Even if you thought you were well-off, chances are that whatever wealth you thought you possessed has diminished in recent times. The upheaval in the world’s financial markets has made it only too clear that worshipping at the altar of materialism is a risky business.

So how do we navigate this treacherous territory at a time when material greed and expectation have reached heights that Socrates probably never even imagined? At a time in which global finances are in such rapid flux that no one can predict what will happen next?

First of all, stay close to yourself. Listen to your dreams and imaginings, and your inner promptings. Take yourself seriously. The soul will not lead you in the wrong direction if you pay attention. Learn to distinguish between the inner soul voice and the conditioned fantasy voice, and pay close attention to how manifestation functions for you.

The following are some questions that will help you work through your thoughts about money. Write these in your journal, and take some time to meditate on and write about each one.

  • Where does your money tend to come from? Do you get funds from your family, from your spouse, from hard work, from throwing big parties, from creating works of art?
  • How does money come to you? Does it come in sudden wind-falls or in regular paychecks? Does it come happily or unhappily?
  • What are your open gates for receiving money, and where do you think you might be closed? Visualize the gates through which money comes to you and see why some are closed. Find out what it would take to open them.
  • How does stuff come to you? Is it different from how money comes to you? (Sometimes people have a knack for attracting things over money because they have a negative belief about money itself.)
  • Look for where life is easy for you and see if that lesson can be applied to the realms that are more difficult. For example, if you have easy, plentiful friendships with women, think about working in a field in which women will be your clients or customers.
  • Examine your family of origin issues. Every family has its trips about money. What did you learn about money as a child? If money was lacking, what concepts has that imparted to your thinking? If you were born into a family that had money and that you have inherited, accept this as your fate and use the money to further your soul dream, which will often be philanthropic and/or socially responsible.
  • Look at where you disrespect money and waste it, and clean up your act. Look at your ethics and see if you feel entirely comfortable with all your choices.
  • Add up how much money you spend a year in interest and see what you can do to turn that negative into a positive by earning the money before you spend it.

Gratitude practice is useful in clarifying our relationship with money. Think about all the financial help you have received in your life and give thanks for it. Gratitude blocks can often arise around money because it can be such a charged issue, bringing up issues of entitlement in particular.

If you feel you don’t have as much money as you need, look at what useful function the lack of money might serve for you spiritually. For example, if you tend to be scattered in your thoughts and actions, a lack of money might serve to focus you on what is really necessary. Imagine having all the money you think you need and see how you feel. Within that you may find clues to why you might be blocking yourself from being wealthier.

Practice respect for but also detachment from money. The gods and goddesses of money seem to like us to pay close attention but to also be relaxed. (That applies to just about everything, though, doesn’t it?)

Give space in your perceptions for the possibility that everything right now is absolutely perfect – that the restrictions you experience on the material level are actually part of the divine plan of your soul for your ultimate fulfillment. Do this while vowing to free yourself of karmic restrictions brought about by erroneous thoughts and actions regarding money, work, and material anxiety.

Time Management Training: What It Entails

Time Management Training: What It Entails

Are you an office manager or a business owner? If you are, you must know the importance of time management in the office. Did you know that when your employees don’t know how to manage their time, they likely end up costing your company money?  Whether you are a business owner or an office manager, you do not want to see this happen.

When it comes to poor time management at the office, there are many office managers and business managers who choose to provide their employees with time management training.  If this sounds like a good idea to you, you may be looking for more information.  You may be curious as to exactly what time management training its, how it works, and what your staff members will learn.  If these are all questions that you have, you will want to continue reading on.

When understanding time management training, it is important to remember that it does come in a number of different formats.  For example, most companies choose to hire outside specialists.  These are individuals or teams of individuals who come in and teach staff members the importance of proper time management, as well as share tips on how to get the most done through the day.  A good example of this is by showing or helping your staff members get their office desks better organized.  This is key, as organization and time management go hand in hand.

As nice as it is to hire outside help from professional office organizers and time management specialists, the cost of doing so may be a put off for you.  If it is, you may be able to host your own time management training sessions.  Doing so is actually a lot easier than you may originally think.  In fact, many business owners and office managers like this approach as it gives them complete control over what their staff members learn.

Speaking of what your staff members will likely learn in time management training, it will vary.  As previously stated, you can hire outside help or you can perform your own training sessions.  Regardless of which approach you do take, there are some things that you will want to make sure that your staff members know.  First, make sure that you not only tell them the importance of properly managing their time at the office, but show them ways that they can improve the use of their time.  These ways may involve keeping a clean and organized office desk, completing a to do list each morning, and so forth.

It is also important that you outline the consequences for employees who continue to waste company time.  After time management training as has been offered to all employees, there is no reason why employees should be seen standing around, socializing with each other, or using an office computer for personal use.  State that these things are okay for break time, but not during normal work hours.  You may want to go as far to show your staff members just how much their wasted time is costing the company.  Let them know that additional warnings may come, with termination being a possibility.

As a reminder, time management training is not required by many means, but you may find it a relatively easy and effective approach, especially when compared to terminating and rehiring new employees.

What To Do With Employees Who Don't Properly Manage Their Time

Employees Who Don't Properly Manage Their Time

Are you a business owner? If you are, there is a good chance that you have employees in your staff who do not now how to manage their time. What do you do with these employees? If you are unsure as to how you should proceed, please continue reading on.

First, it is important to do something.  The last thing that you will want to do is let an employee who has bad time management fly under the radar.  Many business owners do not think about this at the time, but there are a serious consequences for not calling out poor performing workers.

One of the many consequences to allowing one of your employees to keep on wasting their time and yours, is that others are likely to follow suit.  Even some of your best performing employees are likely to waste time socially or by surfing the internet when they see that others are able to do the same and get away with it.

Your business profits will also likely be put at risk.  When an employee spends too much time surfing the internet or wasting time in general, it will likely take much longer for you to get projects completed.  This can have an impact on your business profits.  For example, you may later end up paying your employee overtime to complete a task that they should have finished during normal work hours.

If your business deals directly with the general public, an employee who does not know how to mange their time can also have a negative impact on your company’s public perception.  Deadlines should not be missed, but proper time management is vital when working with clients.  Did you agree to have forms drawn up on time for a client of yours?  If you did, they should be ready when expected.  If not, your client may look elsewhere.  Also, places that have employees just hanging around the office and socializing tends to look unprofessional in nature.

So, you now know the consequences of letting an employee with poor time management slide, but what should you do?

It is important to bring a lack of time management to the attention of your employee or employees.  Let them know that wasting time on the clock is not acceptable, especially when there are other tasks or projects that they could be working on.  Clearly state that socializing is for break times only.

Next, be sure not to let the same behavior continue.  Workers who have been warned about wasting their time and the time of the company should not have any excuse for doing so.  Give one more final warning before taking evasive action.  This action may include terminating your employee’s position with the company.

Despite the fact that termination is an option, you may have what you believe to be an otherwise good employee.  If that is the case, you may want to opt for time management training.  This can be done yourself or with the services of a third party.  In fact, if you have a large number of employees who seem to not know how to manage their time, you may want to opt for company wide training.

Should you decide to host your own time management training seminar, as opposed to using outside help, be sure to share tips with your employees, outline the importance of making good use of their time at the workplace, as well as the consequences of not doing so.  This leaves no room for exceptions and you should see a significant improvement in productivity in your workplace.

As a recap, if you are a business owner or even just an office manager, it is important to make sure that all of your employees are working to the best of their ability.  Your company and your own personal reputation may end up taking the fall for those who do not perform to the best of their ability.

10 Tips For Psychometric Tests, be Prepared to Apply
Psychometric Tests

What's the Purpose of a Psychometric Test?

The purpose of psychometric and aptitude tests is to give employers insight into your cognitive capabilities and behavioural style. These tests are very useful in that they can highlight your strengths and weaknesses more so than your CV or a face-to-face interview. Most psychometric tests are given in a timed format with multiple-choice questions. These tests come in a variety of subjects and are used throughout many industries. Some of the most popular psychometric tests used by employers include numerical, verbal, and abstract reasoning assessments. Other popular pre-employment assessments include those for situational judgement and personality tests.

Our extensive online psychometric test database gives you the ability to become familiar with any type of psychometric test you could possibly imagine. The practice packs available on our website offer both a step-by-step and timed version of each test giving you the ability to learn as you go. Each of our unique PrepPacks™ provide in-depth score reports with full answer explanations to further stimulate your learning process.

How to Prepare for Your Psychometric Tests

Psychometric and aptitude tests fall into a variety of categories. You are likely to be asked to take a psychometric or aptitude test when applying for a job, or for a specific university programme. These tests will evaluate numerous skill sets and give insight into your personal strengths and weaknesses relevant to the role or programme.

If you wish to stand out during the testing process, then practising beforehand is crucial to your success. Our full-length practice tests and in-depth study guides will stimulate your learning process and boost your test-taking abilities.

10 Tips for Success in Psychometric Tests

1) Be Honest
If you try to ‘kid the system’ or answer the questions as you feel you should answer them you will come out worse than if you are 100% honest throughout. A psychometric test is designed to look for inconsistencies in the answers and are very cleverly written to indicate where it feels the answers are not wholly truthful.

2) Turn Off Your Cynical Mind
If you are cynical about the relevance and accuracy of psychometric tools turn off your opinion whilst you complete the tests. I too was a cynic when I first starting administering psychometric tools but having conducted over 2000 of them I can count on more than a few fingers those candidates who felt that the test results were not an accurate representation.

3) You Are Who You Are
The way that I coach candidates is to treat it like a photograph. If someone took your photo you wouldn’t argue that it wasn’t an accurate representation. In the same way you should approach a psychometric profile with the same attitude – you are who you are, you’re happy who you are, answer as you are! Answer honestly and you’ll be amazed at how uncannily accurate the results are.

4) The Results will be the Same in an Interview
If you’ve behaved honestly throughout the recruitment process then the psychometric tool will simply confirm the traits that you will demonstrate at interview, so quite simply there is nothing to worry about!

5) Don't Worry if the Administrator is 'Frosty'
Psychometric test administrators will normally follow a standard set of instructions in verbatim and as such can com across cold or unfriendly – don’t be perturbed by this they are simply doing their job to ensure that the tests are completed in exactly the same conditions.

6) Ensure You Understand the Instructions
In virtually all psychometric tools you are given examples to complete before the actual test. If you are in any doubt that you are completing correctly ALWAYS ask. Follow each instruction given and never be afraid of asking questions if you are not 100% certain. It is the role of an administrator to ensure that you 100% understand the instruction and will normally quite clearly detail that ‘understanding the instruction is not part of the test’ .

7) Is English Your First Language?
If English isn’t your first language let the facilitator know – many products take this factor into consideration and in many cases you can conduct the test in your ‘mother tongue’ .

8) Go with Your Intuition!
Don't panic – go with your intuition, your ‘gut feeling’ – the first answer that ‘feels right’ normally is right!

9) Don't Review Your Answers when You Finish!
Treat each question or row of questions as a separate entity – don’t be tempted to look back at previous answers and try and match your answers – an alert will be raised to indicate either inconsistency, excess stress and pressure levels or pure dishonesty. Once you finish, FINISH! Don’t be tempted to review your test answers you’ll be drawn to match the answers throughout the test.

10) Ask for Your Test Results!
Good companies and psychometric test facilitators will give you a copy of the results that can help you become more self aware.
