Many people have read various law of attraction books such as The Secret, Excuse Me Your Life is Waiting, Think and Grow Rich and 100s of others. Many people understand that what you think about and place your focus on attracts your future circumstances, good and bad. This concept has been proven with quantum physics.
Therefore, it does not make sense to support causes that raise awareness for illness and poverty. Instead we should raise awareness for health and prosperity. Stop walking, running and biking for illness. Stop marching or singing for poverty. Stop participating for causes you DO NOT want! Stop pouring buckets of ice water over your head. Unless of course you want the illness, poverty, etc.
(If people really understood what the ice bucket challenge was all about they would run very far away from it. Stop watching and stop participating in the ritual! There is a reason why someone jumped off a building and died after doing the ice bucket challenge…and that is all I will say about it for now.)
Celebrities get involves with charities for publicity and perks. Many people just get involved with charities so they can join a club or claim bragging rights to how many miles they walked to help others. They send out pictures, on Facebook and Twitter, of themselves doing good work. Many people have good intentions. I have participated in the past with good intentions. However, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. I know better now.
Many celebrities have participated in charity fraud and hoaxes. Many of the dollars you donate go to both wealthy people who sit on the boards and celebrities who get paid salaries or perks for their endorsement.
To really make a difference, walk, march and sing for health, prosperity, peace and love. Send money to family members and friends who are suffering. If you are worried about not getting the tax deductions, then perhaps you should check your intentions.
What you send out to others returns to you like a boomerang. Give to others freely, and your future will improve. Never take any credit or talk about your charitable actions. Once you take credit for a good deed, you negate the positive outcome for yourself. Never talk about your charity work because it breaks the flow of return and good karma. Giving anonymously, when possible, is the best way to go. The more you give, the more you receive. It is the law of cause and effect. Give to your loved ones freely, and you are giving to yourself as well.
Our thoughts cause shifts and collective thoughts create thought forms that manifest in a greater way. This helps explain why we have more charities, and events for awareness, then ever before yet illness and disease are greater than ever. If raising awareness for something bad stopped it, we would be doing a lot better.
Now that you know, stop raising awareness for what you do not want. Stop the insanity!!!! Focus on what you want and expect the positive returns.
