Authors Esther and Jerry Hicks [The Teachings of Abraham]

The content of this book (CD comes with it) is cutting edge.

I have gazillion of books, participated in gazillion workshops (OK a bit exaggerated) , and spent a lot of money, time and effort in improving self, business, and outlook in life, etc.

But this is ONE little book and CD that accompany, which costs less than $20 manifested things I wanted in matter of days (less than 1 month to be exact).  Things I wanted / desired didn’t manifest this quickly with any other books/workshops, coaching programs etc. I think I spent tens and thousand of dollars over the past 2-3 years for all kinds of things.  EVERYTHING contributed to a certain degree and I do not regret any of the things I tried.  But this one little low cost book tops everything else in my opinion.  I have not read this book cover to cover.  Just first few pages had EVERYTHING I needed.  It is truly life changing.

Since then, I bought a lot of books/CDs from Esther and Jerry Hicks since then and gave them to my friends for the Holidays, Birthdays, and for no particular occasion.  Out of all books, The Astonishing Power of Emotions is still my favorite.  For those who listen to the accompanying CD over and over again and truly “get” the information presented on first few pages will start manifesting sooner rather than later (this is just based on my own experience and observation).

And yes….since we are all human, we all need to reinforce the information over and over again; otherwise we easily “forget”; divert away from true “self” / “being” and manifestation stops.

I’m not sure why I stumble into interesting things, people, opportunities…. I’m not specifically looking but I find them.  I’m sure I’m attracting them.  I must attract money along with it.  So I can take advantage of some of the opportunities that come along….so fast and so furious!

About three days ago, I imagined stacks of solid GOLD bars.  I was not planning to invest.  I was just thinking…GOLD must be a good investment.  And today, gold mine investment opportunity was entertained.  Gold mine?  I never thought about such a thing as an investment vehicle before.  Again, I was not looking and I didn’t ask.  I was just talking with Mario Vazquez, an owner of reputable investment company who I have been doing some business with.  Apparently, there are a lot of mines with gold, silver, copper & other previous stones in Mexico (and actually such mines are all over the world….but in this case, Mexico) that are being sold so cheap.  Of course, one must do a due diligence and check the density of gold (or other precious metals & stones) a mine consists of.  The registration, engineering study, evaluation & report can cost about a million or more, but a good mine can be valued at 8-9 digits.

Mario was also looking for an investor who can provide a short-term bridge-loan for movie production.  I believe his friend, Hector Cordoba is the executive producer of a block buster movie to-be.  I heard that couple of companies are offering investment of $65M in production cost, but before the big money comes, there are immediate expenses to handle.  I decided to connect Mario with my contacts; starting out with Tom Cataldo who knows a lot of interesting people such as Brett-Livingstone Strong, a famous artist who plans to build a huge bronze Statue of Freedom in Long Beach (that competes? with Status of Liberty in NY) and a movie producer who is trying to buy a lot in Rosarito Beach formerly used to film Titanic, etc.  Tom himself was quite famous as an inventor back in the 70s.

I’m interested to know what comes out of the whole thing!!  I’m glad to be a connector to bring people & opportunities together.

There are many Real Estate related opportunities out there.  Foreclosures, bulk REOs, Tax sales, Short sales, Auction, Probate, you name it.

Some how, I’m surrounded by people that are actively engaged in Real Estate investments right now.  They are brokering, buying & flipping, passively investing, etc.  It’s amazing to know, there are tons of people who have access to millions of dollars.  For them, this is a very exciting time; certainly NOT down economy.  This is the time to make more money for those with money and/or time.

Oh… I wish I have millions to invest right now.  Since I don’t, I just need to be creative!  I always seem to attract tons of interesting opportunities … but I need to do a better job in managing both time & money.  Otherwise, before you know it, they come and go quickly!

Yesterday, I visited Castle Arch Real Estate Investment Company in Costa Mesa.  They offer passive investment opportunities for investors through bulk REOs; but they do so by evaluating 1 property at a time using local professionals in a very careful & concise manner; nation-wide.  They use Conix system to streamline processes.  The company is lead by reputable Kirby Cochran, CEO with great track records.  What I learned:

  • Interestingly, market value is usually less than stated BPO (Broker Price Opinion) in banks’ REO inventory.
  • In addition, value is lost on average 1.2-1.5% per month.  This is not being adjusted in bank’s system.
  • So they don’t use bank’s BPO as a base, they do their due-diligence and negotiate the price down based on their own findings which also factor in fix-up cost for each property.

Investments offered by Castle Arch goes through a cycle within 6-12 months; with a targeted return on 15%-30% per investment cycle.  To be more specific, minimum investment is $50K, preferred A dividends @ 15% APR plus distribution of adjusted net profit for investor pool at 25% within average of 4 month period, as an example.  Conix system allows them to evaluate RE more accurately with lower risks.  Investors can log-in and see, evaluations, data, pictures (google earth too), buy price, targeted sell price, expenses for EACH property; total of $10M+ worth of REO properties all at once.  I have never seen so streamlined & so transparent “system” in Real Estate investment before.

There is no guarantee in life (except death) …everything has risks.  But for passive investors, this appears to be safer short-term investment opportunity with high return.

Debt in the US – The Reality

The reality is, the US is in serious debt; and debt is increasing every moment.  Go to U.S. Debt Clock site and see for yourself.  Compare the Total National Assets and US Unfunded Liabilities.  You will notice, liabilities are staggeringly much more than assets and increasing.  Also take a look at the numbers on Social Security Liability & Medicare Liability.  Can Uncle Sam really help us when we retire?  Can we really rely on the government to support us?  Looking at the numbers, I don’t think so.

Are we in bankruptcy?  As a matter of fact,  I recently find out that The United States of America is INDEED in bankruptcy since 1933.  So why are we considered one of the wealthiest countries in the world?  I have been doing some digging, and starting to find our the TRUTH about how the modern COMMERCE works.  Whch goes really deep.  I promise I will post more information about this.

In short – We must protect ourselves.  I believe, people with real assets will survive but the rest may not.  The “real assets” are NOT paper currencies and electronic “money”.
