A major change in the direction of our markets may have occurred on February 2, 2018. What happened? The stock markets declined by 666 points which may have been the key signal from our Spiritual Source that events are changing for all markets in 2018. My sense is that this date should be viewed as a key ‘turning point’ for finance and economics…going forward!


Few comprehend that our markets are now spiritual markets. Most pundits have no recognition (clue) of the ‘nature’ of these cyber/digital markets. I have been following these markets for 50 years, as well as teaching about the history of money and value. I have noticed this significant change from physical money units to cyber/digital/virtual money units. Our markets have been digitized and virtualized these past 20 years to a degree that few seem to recognize. Why?


My sense is that our education system and our financial pundits who follow these markets have not done their homework fully. Virtual money is what we live with today (mostly). Virtual symbols ($$$$$$) and index numbers (1,2,3…) are what we all use to trade and transact these markets. Virtual means that the markets are NOT material/physical. It means that our markets are inner and part of our consciousness. So what is consciousness?


Consciousness is my inner spirit and/or mind. Consciousness is spiritual/metaphysical. Consciousness is not a ‘thing’ composed of material ‘matter’. Consciousness activates my thinking and creates my daily behavior. It is key to one’s belief system and one’s worldview. Does my consciousness derive from my physical BRAIN? Absolutely not! This  brain idea, however, seems to be the mindset of most pundits and educators. But is this reality? Does my physical brain activate itself?


My brain is a physical organ with billions of dynamic neurons and synapses firing and moving. But what activates this physical brain and all these neurons? This is the key to understanding the nature of consciousness. My brain can not function or operate without being activated by my consciousness. Consciousness also produces my thinking which then produces my behavior. My worldview is a result of my beliefs and my thinking. I presume that you function in a similar manner.


All our cyber markets are now living within my/your consciousness. Look all around your current venue at this moment. Do you see ‘consciousness’? Do you see ‘money’? Do you see the ‘dollar’. Do you see a virtual symbol/number? Do you see cyberspace? I don’t! I see tables, chairs, houses, cars, trees, people, the Sun, moon, clouds, etc. I don’t observe or see my ‘inner’ symbols, words, numbers, ideas, or my consciousness. This world is invisible an ‘inner’. It is spiritual!


Our financial markets have entered this ‘inner’ world with the changes which have transpired these past 20+ years. Money units are being replaced with virtual symbols, numbers, and digits. Stock trading is now a virtual/cyber computer operation. Bond trading is virtual and via the electronic computer. Nearly all money transactions are now being done with mobile devices and programmed algorithms. Apps have replaced all the printed directories. The speed-of-light smart phone has replaced the telephone.


Today, our markets are living in this Netherworld called cyberspace. This space is not physical. This space is not material. This space is really an ‘extension’ of my/your consciousness. We live within this space when we trade, invest, save, and exchange money symbols. Exchanging money symbols ($$$$$$) is what happens within this metaphysical space. It’s non-physical and inner. It’s ‘part’ of our consciousness. Those who comprehend this change recognize that we now live in a spiritual marketplace.


The decline of our cyber/inner markets on February 2, 2018, was precisely 666 points. Was this a mere coincidence? Was this chance in operation? Maybe…but I doubt it! My sense is that the 666 point drop was a clear ‘signal’ from our spiritual SOURCE that we now live in a spiritual marketplace. This spiritual marketplace is changing rapidly as our SOURCE has a plan for all of us. This plan is a prophetic plan which is part of our destiny. It’s all determined and predestined by a much Higher Authority! Trump does not RULE this planet. Neither does Putin, Merkel, Kim, Xi, or Pope Francis!


The next few years will help everyone to become AWARE that we live in a spiritual marketplace. Words are spiritual phenomena. Ideas are spiritual phenomena. Symbols are spiritual phenomena. Money is a spiritual idea. Value is a spiritual idea. The marketplace is now becoming INNER and spiritual. It’s obvious to me. But I don’t think the vast majority of thinkers discern these changes. Blindness is everywhere. But change in thinking will emerge IMO. Some inner ‘fear’ may be the catalyst for real change! Think for yourself! I am:
