So last week we began a discussion about how the people in your inner circle affect your happiness and prosperity. Last post we looked at the energy you may be sending out. Now let’s look at some places you can meet people of higher consciousness.
First of all, to build on the last post, remember this: Everyone likes to buy, but no one likes to be sold. So if you go out with a desperate vibe to meet certain types of people you’ll probably scare them off. Relax and live in the moment, appreciating everyone for who they are and you’ll become more attractive to others.
And the places you put yourself in will have a lot to do with setting the appropriate gene pool you’ll be drawing from. If you’re hanging out at smoky bars, whom do you expect to meet there?
Lots of Barnes and Noble, Waldenbooks, or local bookstores now have lounge areas or coffee bars inside. The kind of people you’ll find there on a Friday or Saturday evening will certainly be vibrating at a higher consciousness than those you’ll find in a pub.
Have you thought about joining a sports league? People who exercise their body usually exercise their mind as well. Now if you just join a league where guys use softball as an excuse to drink a 12-pack of beer a night, the rules change.
Are you a member of a spiritual community? People that attend a weekly service to connect with a higher power are usually dialed into a higher consciousness. Of course if you’re joining a movement that teaches hate and intolerance, those won’t be the people you’re looking for. Look for an environment without the doctrines and dogma, that emphasizes spirituality, not necessarily religion.
I’m Christian, but some of the most amazing people in my life are Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu, and Atheist. And I can invite them all to a dinner party and we have fascinating conversations without judgment or condescension. We learn the most from people that aren’t like us.
Check online and see if there are any Unity or Science of Mind churches in your area. You’ll find they accept you regardless of your faith and they offer many classes and workshops. People that are active learners are the kind you want to be around.
So these are some of my ideas on meeting positive people. What about you? Where do you go or what do you do when you want to hang with people of consciousness? Please share your thoughts below.
