I believe the most peaceful response we can have today is to prepare to live within the new financial system. Therefore, I keep writing about it.
Today, I look at three steps to prepare.
The first is to become informed.
Here is the situation, as I understand it.
We currently use a fiat financial system. This system is teetering and about to fail.
We have been told a fiat system is necessary because the world does not have enough precious metals to use a gold-based system.
Based on claims made in recent United States Federal Court cases, we have more than enough gold for a new system. The abundance of gold has been one of the world’s best-kept secrets.
There are reports that several plans are in place for a new global gold-based financial system. It appears that a new system is on the way sooner, rather than later.
It is my opinion that these various new financial systems we are hearing about will eventually become one system. Before that happens we will see rival factions with similar ideas. This is a product of living in a world where we are all connected. History has many recorded instances of significant similar discoveries taking place in different parts of the world at the same time without collaboration.
I believe this is what we are seeing with the multiple reports of a new economic system. In fact, earlier this week, I received confirmation of this. I’ll devote an article to this topic in the next few days.
Each system claims it will be easier for us to live. We will have more income than expenses – although it may not be expressed as income and expenses. In addition, debt will be reduced, either through an abundance of money or a forgiveness of debt.
It remains to be seen if this type of system will be successful. However, all of the systems make similar claims.
The second step is to get ready for the transition.
It is possible the transition to the new system will be turbulent as we leave behind the old, try the new, and figure out the details.
As I said last week, I believe the best financial preparation is to change our focus from wealth building to sustenance building. I recommend keeping a minimal amount of money in bank accounts and pulling money out of the market and out of retirement accounts.
I recommend using this money to purchase sustenance items. These may include alternative energy sources, water filtration systems, dry foods, and other things to successfully get through a transition.
As a general rule, these purchases would be useful if the transition started tomorrow and would reduce the cost of living in the current economy too.
The third step of preparation is to change perspective.
A sustenance mentality means our perspective of life changes.
We no longer work to create wealth. Instead, we work because we enjoy it. Yes, we exchange energy in the process. We get paid because we are skilled at tasks. However, our perspective on this changes so that we no longer compartmentalize our lives.
We recognize that life brings us exactly what we need to thrive. This includes our work schedule, our tasks, and the people in our lives.
I believe this is the key to making this work. We must have and maintain peaceful hearts by using whatever resources we have in our lives to sustain life and enjoy it.
These three things: information, preparation for transformation, and a change in perspective will completely prepare us for what it ahead.
I’m hopeful we will get through this with flying colors!
Tomorrow, I’ll write about how our spirituality can prepare us for this shift.
