What Happens AFTER The Canary In The CoalMine Dies?

Rognvaldson Spinning Wheel

ICELAND 3 MONTHS LATER

This tiny island of  fewer than 300,000 people was the sacrificial canary in the coalmine for the global economic collapse just 3 short months ago. The Icelandic economy, laden with overseas debt of more than 10 times GDP, was the first to collapse in what will most likely be a global domino effect from the credit fallout, despite huge bailouts.

SO WHAT IS A GUY GOING TO DO?

You have lost your life savings, your job and possibly, your home…what comes next?

This story is near to my heart because of my Icelandic roots…and my grandfathers story.

VANCOUVER CLUCKS!

Chickens in your back yard?…what do you think?

This “Monday” blog is written to honor what we believe are enlightened organizations and communities, and is normally posted on Monday, but our Monday posting has been delayed in hopes of results on a great story coming out of Vancouver, British Columbia.

Unfortunately, the  City Council will not vote until tonight on a resolution that will determine what you, if you live in Vancouver, can have clucking in your back yard. So I felt I could be late no longer. Lets talk about it and on Wednesday, I will give you the results of their vote.

What Does It Take For An Organization To Change Its Mindset?

A Roadmap to Corporate Consciousness

CHANGING ONES OWN MINDSET CAN BE CHALLENGING – BUT CAN YOU SHIFT AN ENTIRE ORGANIZATION?

If you have ever tried to make a lifestyle change, perhaps to exercise more, eat healthier, spend more time with loved ones and less time at the office, you know what a challenge it can be just to make a small change in behaviourial patterns.

If you think it is challenging to change behaviours, consider how much more challenging it is to make significant mental or consciousness shifts, for oneself, and particularly, for an entire organization.

So, how on earth do you begin to shift?

Your Intuition

Intuition guides you in a quantum world

corporate mindshift: management

WHY DO WE NEED TO TRUST OUR INNER SELF?

The global economy is in transition. Times of transition are accompanied by stress and uncertainty. Transition means a journey into new and uncharted waters. Which means, no one has the answers. A prime example can be found in the debates raging around the world on how best to handle this first-ever global financial crisis.

Be at least as interested in what goes on inside you as what happens outside. When you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place.Primary reality is within, secondary reality is without. -Eckhart Tolle, author, The New Earth

Intuition is a guidance that comes from within. It is our inner self. It comes from a feeling place and seems to signal something that is TRUTH for us.

We have structured a society with heavy reliance upon outside expert sources and double-blind studies to tell us what we should think and how we should act. Advertising bombards us daily in an attempt to shape our thoughts. We have lost touch with our own guidance systems.

Greed Addiction Blocks Ethical Functioning

SCARCITY VS ABUNDANCE

Last Thursday I posted an article titled Let’s Redefine Abundance. Thanks to Nick Corsi for this link from the PopTech Conference 2008 that expands on the topic.

Listen as Peter Whybrow, neuropsychiatrist, author of “American Mania: When More Is Not Enough,” describes the brain physiology of addiction of a society that demands more and more, yet is left empty, devoid and sick. This clip outlines the HOPE that underlies this economic crisis, if we will take the opportunity to make a cultural shift in our evolution.

Abundance

law of attraction: responsibility

THE LAW OF ATTRACTION = ABUNDANCE

I believe one of the reasons the concept of the Law of Attraction caught on so quickly was its resonance with ideas of abundance. We are infatuated with a definition of abundance that is about GETTING more, MAKING more, HAVING more.

That is the level of understanding many people had of what this Law is all about. And a formula or law that could possibly tell us how to acquire material wealth more quickly and easily, certainly is as attractive as being given the Midas touch.

Not sure if what I say is true? – test yourself…

Porn Industry Seeks A Federal Bailout – A Canary in the Economic Coalmine

Monday, January 19th, 2009

Hustler’s Larry Flint

global trends: industry upheavals

CANARIES GALORE

We all know the story of the coal miners who would take a canary in a cage with them as they entered mine shafts. If the canary died, it indicated oxygen depletion and acted as a warning to the miners to move quickly to avoid their own deaths.

The livelihoods of real people and their families are at stake with every loss of a job, but if watch the big picture, we see interesting changes.

The adult sex industry has been the bulwark of Internet revenue and growth since nearly the beginning. Now CNN reports that the porn industry is asking for a handout.

“Hustler publisher Larry Flynt and Girls Gone Wild CEO Joe Francis said Wednesday they will request that Congress allocate $5 billion for a bailout of the adult entertainment industry.”

WE’RE RIGHT AT THE TURNING POINT

A big shift in all our institutions, businesses and governments is underway. The old power regime is struggling to retain control but, as in any evolutionary process, it must adapt or be replaced by a more adaptable system. In this discussion of Slide 2 of our TAO of Conscious Business(tm) trio of slides, we point out a few of the symptoms that confirm for us the decline is underway. Click to review Slide 1

Finding The Tao Of Business Consciousness

Monday, December 8th, 2008

I’m honored to welcome author and speaker, Judy Berg of British Columbia to Thinking Big Works.

Since retiring from a top communications management position with the Canadian government, she and her husband Jim have built Well Naturally International, a successful network marketing company with Nikken, Inc. and traveled the world.

We have assisted Judy and Jim for two years in the creation of her personal development seminar business, Soul Abundant. I highly recommend her current book, Imagine Your Soul Abundant.

Judy and I are currently writing the book for enlightened businesses, The Tao of Conscious Business: Global Coherence Marketing, which we’ll explore in this blog. Join our conversation. Please share your wisdom and comments.

Here in the beautiful Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada, I don’t need pictures in my living room. Mother Nature selects a new one for me – hour by hour.
