$ Conscious

One of the last frontiers for conscious living is the financial frontier. That’s a fancy way to say: It’s hard to get conscious about money and it’s even harder to stay conscious about it.

Money. What we know about it. What we’ve learned about it. What we do about it. How we act around it. Getting conscious around money is well worth it.

Here’s one of many suggestions: get a conscious credit card. I laughed out loud when I saw the ad.

Finally, a credit card for people like me.

Then a list of things about “people like me.”

I . . .

Practice yoga
Eat organic
Recycle
Read positive
books
Frequent workshops
Donate to charities
Am active in the community
Put my money where my heart is

Then shouldn’t I have a credit card that supports my conscious lifestyle?


Is there one? Absolutely. It’s called the Enlightenment Card. I bit. Here’s some of their website.

Conscious Enlightenment is a global resource for people looking for information, products, and services that can enhance their overall spiritual, health, and creative needs.
Our Mission is to use the power of money, media, and information to change the world.
Our vision is to create a multi-level media platform that disseminates positive information that can be used by anyone.
We believe the world is at a tipping point. Our goal is to assist in creating a unified vision in which we as humans choose to focus on what we have in common and learn to resolve conflict so that we may all share this planet and live as one. We believe in the power of love and the individual armed with information to choose how they want to do their part and get involved.

We will defend democracy, human rights, fair trade and the principal of sustainability in all human enterprise. We listen to the ancient voices of those who have come before us and celebrate the interrelatedness of all living systems.
Our philosophy is to offer any individual who seeks integrative and healthy ideas the tools to evolve their own personal life path. By doing so, we complete the circle:
get what you give - give what you get.
Politically and economically speaking, we support all ideas that create an integrative outcome.
Spiritually speaking, our company is comprised of many people of varying faiths and beliefs. We do not subscribe to any particular religion, and feel strongly that now is the time to set aside our differences and create heaven on Earth.

Delicious, isn’t it? And why not, learning to put our money where our values are is a lifetime task for all of us. I encourage you to start now.
