NVC - It's about Prevention

One thing I am clear about - NVC (Nonviolent Communication) is largely about PREVENTION.  

Heard about the attacks on London Bridge and Borough Market last night and again this morning. 

So sad to think that these kinds of incidents are preventable. 

The London Bridge/Borough Market area is not a million miles away from where I live.  In fact, it's just down the road from where I used to live. 

Since I heard the report last night, and switched on the news again this morning, I've been crying and crying, as I did when I heard about the Manchester attacks.  I'm not frightened for my own personal safety.  I am upset because London is disintegrating, this society is disintegrating.  

Have we forgotten how to talk to each other, and listen to each other?  Are we going to start to see more and more of the religious violence that has been experienced in other parts of the world?  

I don't understand why these people are committing these atrocities, why they lash out at  members of the public in these ways.  I don't understand what they want or why they are choosing to behave in this way.  This is very confusing.  I am confused.   

I only know that we need to TALK to each other and LISTEN to each other, honouring each other's feelings and needs. To repeat:  it's about PREVENTION.  

Go here for my interview with Imam Arif Khan, where he states that Islam requires peace and nonviolence.  

Go here for my interview with Ike Lasater, author of From Conflict to Connection.  Ike has worked in Afghanistan, Pakistan and the U.S.A.  

Go here for more blog posts from the Blogging Carnival for Nonviolence

It's up to us to restore and maintain peace.  It's our responsibility as members of this society - and all societies. 

Go here for books about nonviolence and NVC.

Review of Feel Free to Prosper

I did Marilyn Jennett's “Feel Free to Prosper” programme a few years ago. The programme aims to help you receive unexpected income within two weeks and, certainly in my experience, it worked.

The book gives a very full, clear and detailed explanation of the Law of Attraction, how it works and how we can apply it to improve our experience of money and finances. This is the theoretical basis of the “Feel Free to Prosper” programme.

For more about the Law of Attraction and its practical applications, see my blog post How to Use Affirmations to Build Your Business, and download my ebook Secrets of Manifestation.

If you are new to the LOA or if you have been using it for years, you can probably learn something from Feel Free to Prosper, and/or gain inspiration from it.

One thing I particularly enjoyed about the book was what Jennett calls the Law of Satisfaction, which she says is more powerful than the LOA. I taught this method to my students for many years, although I didn't call it the Law of Satisfaction – perhaps something like the Law of Appreciation works better for me.

Simply put, the Law of Satisfaction (or Appreciation) means that when we focus on what we have already attracted, or manifested, this makes us more able to attract what we want. This is because we become more aware of our ability to manifest. This is powerful stuff.

PLUS – the book contains the first bit of the “Feel Free to Prosper” programme.

I recommend Feel Free to Prosper. Please also share this book with your networks, especially anyone you know who needs to improve their finances.
