The Price of Poverty –

So often we think of poverty and lack in the first person. “I don’t have enough to pay for …..(fill in the blank).) “I can’t change jobs, or start my own business because……(fill in the blank). “I can’t do that seminar because ..(fill in the blank)…” We justify why we stay stuck, and make it very plausible. Smart people are the biggest offenders. We are adept at creating on the physical level and we want to control the nonphysical level in the same manner. The art of working with the intangible is a “feeling” thing, not a “doing thing.” Feeling your power…not getting power. Allowing…not controlling. Trusting…not worrying. Listening to your guidance…not tuning it out.

Our finances are always the easiest excuse we use to avoid our truth. Everyone “gets” that excuse. Like all excuses it is just that, an excuse. A deflection of the truth, to justify nurturing lack of self love, to feed the needs of the ego its necessary diet of fear. Without it ego loses its power…much like a balloon that deflates when the air is let out.

The consciousness of poverty, lack and not enough goes far beyond the individual, and their circumstance. All words and thoughts have a consciousness. When we feed the lack in our own consciousness we feed the consciousness of “collective” lack and poverty. It’s like throwing one more piece of garbage along the roadside, and justifying that it doesn’t really matter that we did that. What this really indicates is a consciousness of low self worth. We dismiss our own value, and our own power. We negate that we are powerful mighty beings just by being born on the planet. When we do not have self-worth, we cannot be abundant and prosperous.

We came from a consciousness that knows only love. That is only love. When we diss-align ourselves with the truth of who we are, we experience separation from those vibrations in the form of poor relationships, limited financial well being, and even poor health. In other words, you can’t “diss” yourself, and expect to attract abundance.

The price of poverty is that we feed the very consciousness we do not want to have in our lives. We make that consciousness more accessible to everyone as we help grow it with our own thoughts. That is the big “game” that gets played on our planet right now. That the external is the ultimate reality. This is the disease of duality that everyone on this planet is working on. Earth is a learning ground. This is the place we practice trust. This is place we learn our inner truths. This is the place we fine-tune our vibration, so that when we return to abundant essence we can remain at the higher vibration to experience the benefit of that awareness.

If we don’t raise our vibration while we are on the planet, we will surely come back, and try again. This isn’t a right or wrong situation. Source does not judge us. Source does not know how to judge. It is simply love. We will most certainly judge ourselves when we compare ourselves to ourselves at the culmination of our growth experience here on Earth school.

Before you dismiss the power of the intangible, consider the price of poverty and the consciousness of lack. Choose your thoughts, and your words carefully. What you give your attention to is what you will bring into your life. Practice, practice, practice. If you choose to believe in the finite laws of life, you will receive finite limited results in your experience. If you choose to believe in the infinite possibilities of life, then you will be tapping into limitless possibilities in your space.

Challenge your perspective. Use your free will wisely.

Author's Bio: 

Phyllis is the author of two books. Her latest work is A Psychic Perspective, 10 Steps to More Love, Wealth and Personal Happiness, (including a 30 Day Plan to Jump Start Your Life). She is the host of the radio talk show, The Common Sense Psychic. She is a professional psychic entering her 30th year of private consultations.

Phyllis’ first memories of being psychic occurred around age five. She recalls waking in the night to see “dancing” beings in her house. She didn’t know that it was right or wrong, or different. No one in her family spoke about these types of occurrences, and she never mentioned it. It simply was an event that occurred. To this day, Phyllis has a unique ability to see the truth for what it is. Just the truth. There is no judgment around the truth. In her words “it is what it is”.

In her early teens she began to have precognitive dreams. She would see the details of many types of events. When she would awaken, in short order those events would come to pass. Again, she never mentioned this to anyone. It was an event that occurred at age 19 that changed her motivation and direction forever. She was visited by a friend who had passed in a car accident. She describes the experience as beautiful, with no sense she needed to be afraid. In those moments, she knew unequivocally there was more to life than what we can see, touch and feel. She was driven to understand the “unseen” and her own innate talents.

Phyllis has lived and pursued psychic phenomenon, and spirituality without pause for nearly 30 years. Although learning never ends, she believes she has some answers to some questions. It is her passion to share this information with others in search of their own truth. She has read thousands of people in 20 different countries.

Phyllis considers psychic reading to be an honor and a privilege. She views it as sacred when people give her permission to look at their secrets and hopes, their flaws and their dreams, all with the purest hope of connecting more fully with the nature and essence of who they are.

She lives in the San Francisco Bay area and regularly guest hosts the popular personal growth program, “Seeing Beyond” with Bonnie Colleen. She also hosts her own radio show entitled ‘The Common Sense Psychic” on She offers workshops and appears regularly at local events and festivals in the Bay Area.

Phyllis’ educational background is in Sociology. She has used her intuitive skills in the corporate world, the private sector, in nonprofit work. She has held positions as CEO/Executive Director, Marketing Director, and Human Resource Manager. She currently acts as a consultant for corporations and individuals in business applications.
