Conscious Work Environments

By Pamela J. Wells

Conscious work environments start with the top executives and management of an organization. Many organizations continue to use outdated management and human resources strategies based upon what they have learned and carried down, unrevised, over many years and, in some cases, even decades.

Executives and upper management’s perceptions of employees, in general, and their view of the way in which they fit into the organization determines the quality of the work environment and whether it is a healthy one or a toxic one, which has an effect on the level of efficiency, productivity, and costs of the organization.

Book Excerpt: I Can See Clearly Now by Dr. Wayne Dyer


It’s Christmastime 1941, a few weeks after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. America has been drawn into war; two of my mother’s brothers are serving in the military, one in Europe and the other in the Pacific. My father is no longer in the picture. His persistent carousing with other women, excessive drinking, and regular encounters as a lawbreaker, which have landed him in jail on several occasions, have finally made living with him impossible for my mother. He has simply walked away from his fatherly responsibilities, never to be heard from again. My mother is alone with three children under the age of five to feed. She’s taking her three boys to her mother’s house to be watched while she goes to work for the day. 

My two older brothers and I are waiting with our mother for the bus to arrive on Jefferson Avenue on the east side of Detroit. We’re dressed in our snowsuits, mittens, galoshes, and earmuffs, standing at the bus stop next to what appears to us to be a huge mountain of freshly plowed snow. The road is littered with salt to melt the continually falling snow, and it is one big nasty mess. A truck drives past the four of us, spraying us so hard with slush that we’re knocked off of our feet. We land safely but soaked on the gigantic pile of snow.

My mother breaks down—she’s dressed for work and covered with dirty, salty slush. She is exasperated. Her life is obviously out of control with the departure of her former husband, and she’s doing her best to make ends meet. The lingering Depression, along with a world war, contributes to her overall situation. Work is difficult to come by, and my mother must rely upon the meager help that comes from her family. They too are overburdened by the long-term economic downturn. It is a difficult period under the best of circumstances, due to shortages of all manner of goods, and the fog of war itself. 

My two brothers are very upset, too. Five-year-old Jim attempts to console our mother; three-year-old David is crying uncontrollably. Me? I am having the time of my life. This is like a nice surprise party with a big castle of snow that we’re all lying on top of. We can have fun! I don’t quite understand why everyone is so angry and frustrated. 

And then these words came out of my mouth: “It’s okay, Mommy. Don’t cry. We can all just stay here and play in the snow.” 

I’m the baby who seldom cries; the toddler who tries to make everyone laugh and feel good, regardless of what’s going on. I’m the kid who makes silly faces to change the environment from sad to glad. I am that little boy who’d be sure There must be a pony here somewhere if the sandbox was full of manure. I don’t know how to be filled with sadness. My demeanor seems to be naturally inclined to look for the bright side and pay little heed to things that make everyone else dreary. 

According to my mother, I’m the most independent and inquisitive little boy she and her family have ever encountered. Apparently I arrived with this happy disposition intact. I am so happy to be here in this world. At 19 months of age I am almost the same size as Dave, who is 18 months older. I try to get my brother to laugh and feel safe, because he seems to be afraid, sick, and most of the time, sad, but he seldom even smiles. I find the world so exciting, and I love wandering and exploring.

Book Excerpt: Miracles Now by Gabrielle Bernstein



I do not believe in miracles. I rely on them.
— Yogi Bhajan

     Over the last several years, our collective negativity and fear have adversely affected the economy, the environment, and the health of all beings on this planet. Due to new technology, global warming, financial crises, violent crimes, political turmoil, and planetary shifts, we’ve become more sensitive to the energy around us and the pace of life. The world has sped up and the changes we’re experiencing can be difficult to navigate. The intensity of this time can be very uncomfortable and, in many cases, paralyzing. Without clear direction, people can feel misaligned with their purpose, their relationships, and their overall connection to the world.
     Right now we’re in a special and powerful position, because the world is having a spiritual awakening. When energy speeds up there is no space for playing small, and nothing can remain hidden. At some point all lies are brought to the surface and truth comes forth no matter how hard we try to hide it. Cynics are filling the yoga studios and the spiritual choir is growing larger. There is a massive call for more lightworkers, and now is our time to rise up and bring more positivity to the world. When the masses begin to vibrate with an energy of love, the world will no longer be a container for war, violence and lies.
     This book will set you on the right path and help you release fear and tension to bust through your blocks fast. In this day and age we need ways to clear our stress and fear quickly because you simply might not have time to do an hour of yoga each day or sit in meditation for 30 minutes whenever anxiety creeps in. Having tools for creating fast shifts is imperative.
     This book offers soulful methods for achieving peace drawn from some of the world’s greatest spiritual teachings. What’s unique about the techniques I’ve chosen is that you can use them to quickly clear your stress and fear any time—even if you only have a minute to spare. Let’s get honest: We’re overwhelmed enough. Our spiritual practice can’t add to that sense of overwhelm. Instead, our practice must be designed to bust through the stress and feelings of being overwhelmed fast so we can live with ease. This book is like a juggernaut for eliminating stress.
     Miracles Now contains 108 techniques for the most common problems we face. Each technique will highlight the issue, then offer up spiritual principles, meditations, and practical, do-them-now tools. I will break down each technique, in an easy-to-digest way, while incorporating powerful spiritual truths, life-changing Kundalini meditations, and lessons and principles from the metaphysical text A Course in Miracles.
     As a student and teacher of A Course in Miracles and Kundalini yoga and meditation, it has become my mission to translate these life-changing spiritual truths for all seekers. A Course in Miracles is a metaphysical self-taught curriculum based on the principle that when we choose love over fear we experience miraculous change. The Course emphasizes the practice of turning our fears over to the care of our inner guide and places strong emphasis on forgiveness. The Course teaches us that through the experience of forgiveness we will know true peace.
     Kundalini is the yoga of awareness, which focuses on enhancing one’s intuition and strengthening the energy field. Kundalini aims to draw forth the creative potential of an individual to have strong values, be truthful, and focus on compassion and consciousness. Kundalini was brought to the West in 1969 by Yogi Bhajan, a yoga master. Yogi Bhajan brought these teachings knowing we would need the Kundalini technology to balance the energy of what was to come. In the seventies Yogi Bhajan prophesized that these times would be tumultuous. In reference to these times he said, “The capacity of the mind will reach its optimum in order to deal with everyday life. The world will become smaller and smaller and smaller. So man's vitality has to become larger and larger and larger.” He felt it was his mission to give us the tools to calm our nervous system, restore our energy, and cultivate compassion.
     It is a great honor to share the principles of both, A Course in Miracles and Kundalini throughout this book. These tools will help you release all that blocks your connection to your inner power. When you practice these techniques, fear will melt away, inspiration will spring up, and a sense of peace will set in. Most importantly, you will build a relationship to the power within you—and this power connection is essential. The power I speak of is your connection to love. The more we tune into our own frequency of love, the more love will spread. When love is the trend there is no room for violence and war. Trust me when I say: Your practice is crucial in the awakening of the world. Each person’s energy matters.
     There is another reason these techniques are so important, and it goes beyond ourselves: As we release stress in our lives, we help others do the same. Think about it. When you walk into a room and you’re totally stressed out, you immediately bring down the energy—your friends, family, co-workers, even strangers can sense your tension and become uncomfortable. But when you enter a space calm and peaceful, you exude grace and ease. That grace is immediately bestowed upon everyone around you, even if they don’t realize it on a conscious level.
     Your energy has far more power than you can even imagine. There is energy in your spoken words, in your emails, and in your physical presence. When we function from a fearful, low-level energetic state, our thoughts and energy can literally pollute the world. Conversely, when we function from a place of positive energy, the world around us becomes more positive. The truth is that fear cannot coexist with love. Therefore, we must learn how to dissolve all boundaries with love by taking responsibility for our own energy. In doing so, we’ll raise the energy around us.
     To make this practice even more radical, I’ve set you up to be the miracle messenger. A Course in Miracles teaches that when two or more people are gathered in the name of love, a miracle occurs. Therefore, as you use these techniques you’ll be guided to share them. Each daily practice has been boiled down to a 140-character explanation. (And I know you can handle 140 characters.) If you dig it, share it. You can tweet the message, pin it, post it to Facebook, or pass it along on Instagram. Each Miracle Message will end with the hashtag #MiraclesNow. The intention for using the hashtag is to make sure your tweets begin to trend. There is no greater trend than the trend of love. When you are inspired, it’s important to share the message. (Ebook readers can share from their reader.)
     My hope and my intention is to arm you with radical spiritual principles, transformational meditations, and mindful practices that will help you rise to your highest capacity, experience a more joyful life, and serve in a greater way. There is a massive payoff to following this plan: You will feel awesome! Your bucket list will become your reality, and you’ll live a life beyond your wildest dreams. Putting simple techniques into action every day is extremely powerful—because miracles arise from new patterns and shifts in your perception.
     Practice these principles and you’ll quickly move through any pain that has been holding you back and make space to have a richer experience. And I’m talking about every aspect of your life: your relationships, your work and money, your health, your sense of self, and so on. Most important, you’ll have a toolbox of spiritual techniques for navigating the wild energy of this time.
     The best way to begin this journey is to be open to each technique regardless of your initial reaction to it. My hope is that you try each one at least once. Give yourself the chance to be surprised. Then you can decide which tools are best for you. Even if you only regularly apply one of these tools in your life, you will experience miraculous shifts.
     Now, let’s get this miracle train on the tracks and start busting through your blocks, releasing anxiety and living a fearless life. Let’s begin creating Miracles Now.

#1: Happiness is a choice you make.

     Whenever I’m asked about the greatest lesson I've learned, my response is: Happiness is a choice I make. It’s very easy to look for happiness outside ourselves; in a relationship, a dream job, or the perfect body weight. When we chase happiness externally, we’re simply looking for God in all the wrong places. The outside search is based on false projections we place on the world. These projections build up a wall against true happiness, which lies within us. This first exercise will help you understand how nothing “out there” can save you from the conflict that resides within. You must develop a rich inner life to enjoy life altogether.
     Each time we make this shift and choose happiness, we experience a miracle. Our mind shifts from fearful delusions and reconnects to our truth, which is love. Creating these shifts requires a dedicated commitment to choosing love. To begin your commitment to new perceptions, start by paying attention to attack thoughts toward yourself and others. Whenever you notice your thoughts detour into attack mode, say out loud or to yourself: Happiness is a choice I make. Make this your mantra.
     The more you retrain yourself to choose happiness over fear, the more blissful you will be. Repeating a new behavior is what makes change stick. When you repeat a new pattern often, you literally change the neural pathways in your brain. This shift helps true change settle in.
     Happiness is your choice. You can choose today.
     Now it’s time to spread the love! Tweet, Facebook, pin, Instagram, e-mail, and repeat the miracle message below. Pay it forward by carrying the message.

Miracle Message #1: Happiness is a choice I make. #MiraclesNow

How To Be Nice And Loving Without Being A Pushover

By Doreen Virtue
Assertiveness for Earth Angels book excerpt.

     Earth Angels are nice because they’re very sensitive to how energies affect other people. They treat others as they’d wish to be treated, very much living by the Golden Rule.
     Earth Angels see the best in others and expect the best in return. Oh, if only the world really worked that way!
     The three-dimensional physical world is a product of the ego, so the ego prevails for the majority of people, who aren’t aware of the path of true happiness from living in the higher self.
     Now, this doesn’t mean that Earth Angels need to lower their standards and try to fit into the lowest common denominator of rude or ego-based behavior. But it does require Earth Angels to be aware of ego energy when it shows up.
     If you have been taken advantage of repeatedly for being a nice person, then please pay extra attention to this chapter.
     The ego energy is all about “me” and “I”: What is in it for me? and What can I get out of this?
     That’s why self-centered people are called egocentric or egotistical.
     Therefore it’s important to take some time when you’re with someone to be very aware of how your body feels in that person’s presence. Your body is one of the most accurate divination tools on this physical planet. Your body is a crystal that resonates with energy vibrations.
     So when you meet someone, rather than worrying, Does she like me? Am I good enough? and these sort of self-doubting questions, instead listen to what your body says. Notice:
  • Do I feel drained of energy when I’m around this person?
  • Does my stomach tighten with defensiveness, bracing myself against some danger?
  • Do I feel myself backing away from this person or wanting to leave her presence?
  • Is there a sense that I’m the only one giving in this relationship?
  • Does it feel like the other person is all about taking?
  • Does the other person joke or brag about how much she gets away with or takes advantage of others?
  • After being with this person, do I feel tired or depressed or anxious?
     So when you encounter a person who’s ego-centered, you’ll feel a draining sensation in your body, because your energy is literally being drained. You’re also being scanned energetically by the egocentric person, who’s assessing what she can take from you.
     What egocentric people want to take from you can vary. They may want simple things such as a listening ear or kind words. Most Earth Angels don’t feel taken advantage of for giving these things, unless it becomes a one-sided relationship where you’re the only one giving the compliments and doing the listening, and the other person never says anything nice to you, nor do they care enough to listen to you.
     To find a person who isn’t egocentric, you’ll need to hold the intention of meeting other Earth Angels and givers . . . or those who have been working to develop self-awareness, and who have come to the realization that the path to true happiness is through balancing giving and receiving.
     Relationships are synergistic. You can be as nice as an angel in heaven, but unless you’re with someone who honors and respects your niceness, you’ll tend to be taken advantage of by those who are egocentric.
     If someone’s egocentric, don’t worry whether or not he or she likes you. Egocentric people are incapable of liking anyone, because their hearts are closed. They don’t even like themselves.
     When you get a sense that someone’s a “taker,” pull back your energy and don’t try so hard. He or she is not worth your time as your friend, and you’ll end up “breaking up” anyway when you get tired of being taken advantage of. You have a limited amount of time here on Earth, and it’s best to spend it on someone who’ll appreciate being helped.
