POV Monday Promo- The Story Bee-hind the Title (Pt. 2 of 10)

POV Monday Promo is a ten-part series leading up to the publication of Prayers of a Virgin: 52 Weeks of Poetic Inspiration and Personal Planetary Guidance with the Destiny Cards. POV Monday Promo’s goal is to get the needed feedback and funds to edit, format and publish the printed book through Amazon Pre-Order Sales. The promo will also build a buzz around the book via “blooking” the first 3 Chapters before the e-book launches on  August 17th.

THE STORY BEE-HIND THE TITLE

In Pt. 2 of this series,  I’d like to share the story behind the book title, Prayers of a Virgin: 52 Weeks of Poetic Inspiration and Personal Planetary Guidance with the Destiny Cards. The inspiration for the title came from my first love back in my college days. He called me out of the blue after not hearing from him in years. As always, he was right on time, popping up just when I was going through one of life’s initiations through fire. Hearing his voice was a healing balm. He was calling to ask me a favor and what came out of his mouth surprised me, even today when I think of it.

He said, “I need the prayers of a virgin.” At that time, I was a little shocked and embarrassed because I didn’t hold my virginity as a badge of honor, but rather something that alienated me from the rest of society in some unspoken way.  I’ve come a long way since then and part of the reason it’s taken me so long to write my book has had to do with me exposing my “literal” virginity up to age 32. In truth, I’ve always seen virginity as neither good nor bad; however, it was the values, beliefs and judgments around sexuality that society projected onto me for better or worse that caused the most damage. Now that I’ve broken free from all the mental madness, I’m free to share my views without concern for what others might think around the true meaning behind virginity, which to me has little to do with sexuality and more to do with a person “owning onto themselves,” not claimed by any person or perspective that doesn’t serve their ultimate good. I decided to take Dr. Seuss’ advice when he said, “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” Below is the tentative schedule for the POV Promo. Also,  PLEASE take the survey below so I can get your feedback on the book title and concept so far.

POV Monday Promo-Let the Survey Begin! (Pt. 1 of 10)

POV Monday Promo is a ten-part series leading up to the publication of Prayers of a Virgin: 52 Weeks of Poetic Inspiration and Personal Planetary Guidance with the Destiny Cards.

Let the Survey Bee-gin

I’d like to begin this ten-part series with a survey to get your feedback on the book basics in order to create a better product more capable of reaching my audience.   But first, read the book summary below before you Take The Survey

Book Summary

Inspired by the death of my mother, POV is a 52 week inspirational guidebook and astrological calendar specific to your birthdate that helps you understand your life cycles to make better choices using Cardology, an ancient astrological system coined the Destiny Cards by Robert Camp. This book will be accompanied by a .PDF formatted, 52 Week Calendar Report that reveals your personal daily life cycles using an ancient astrological system hidden in the ordinary deck of playing cards! This fascinating system that has been preserved throughout the ages by the Order of the Magi, is based on a mathematical formula that is NOT founded on divination alone like the more familiar tarot cards. With your accompanying report, you will be able to record your daily influences in the book and use it as a planning guide to make better choices.

Eric Pearl, healer and author of The Reconnection: Heal Others, Heal Yourself mentions the importance of having triggers in our lives to help us grow. Triggers are topics that bring up strong emotion. I like to use “trigger” words in my book titles that may bring up predetermined ideas in people’s mind in order for us to address them collectively.

“If you get down and you quarrel everyday, you’re saying prayers to the devils I say.” -Bob Marley

While the word virgin brings up different things for different people, I define virginity as a person who is owning unto themselves and not claimed by anyone. To me, true virginity has less to do with purity based on sex and more to do with ownership. We are all “claimed” by certain things whether they be good or bad (a nation, a person or a philosophy), and yet we are also “virgins” in other areas as well.

What we put our focus on is our prayer, and when we are “unclaimed and focused” in any area that is real power. This book will inspire you to reclaim aspects of yourself, and address the importance of the prayers of all virgins to create a vision for tomorrow…today.

A Mother’s Day Message From Mexico

Pushing Daisy Tuesday Tribute is a series of posts promoting the Pushing Daisy Drive (Driven by Miss Daisy’s Daughter). Every episode is a small tribute to my mom Daisy and hopes to share inspirational posts and promotions. It’s also were I acknowledge Daisy Drive Donors and share campaign updates.

May 12th: Touch Down in Teotihuacan

They say the best things in life aren’t planned and that fact is stranger than fiction. I believe both to be true, especially since on Mother’s Day, my journey back to my house sitting gig in Mexico landed me right in the middle of Teotihuacan (The  Place Where Gods Were Created) on a 7♦ and J♥  day in the Destiny Cards System. For those who are not familiar with Cardology, this is significant because my mother was born on a J♥ day!

Happy Belated Mother’s Day To All!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful souls that qualify to hold this title- whether by giving biological birth or by nourishing and nurturing souls literally and/or figuratively. None of us would be here or have survived this long without a mother’s love and support.

Ironically, today brings forth another serendipitous event. May 14th makes it exactly 6 months short of it being exactly 6 years since my mom made herself a memory back on Nov. 14th, 2013. There’s still not a day that goes by that I don’t think about her.

Since six is a number representing karma and things that weren’t settled coming into balance, today makes the perfect “payback day” for me toward my mother.

The Pushing Daisy Drive Podcast

Although I completed the interview four years ago, I never posted it on my blog because I wanted it to be part of the Pushing Daisy Drive Podcast that I could never get off the ground for one reason or other. Well, ever since Bellony’s Bell Has Rung, I understand better than ever that NOW is the time to post it! My goal is to have a podcast every other week.

2020 Book Vision- Monday Promo Push Off

 “Where the Love to Travel, Fundraise and Write- Unite!”

At DeBorah B’s Travel Bug Blog, I not only promote fundraisers, share travel stories, and showcase community events, artists and activists, l also use this platform to promote my 2020 Book Vision

My 2020 Vision

Since I’ve worn glasses since the age of 5, I’m definitely not talking about my eyesight! My vision for Who I Am Communications is to finish writing 6 books sharing powerful practices and principles for conscious co-creation and to promote & publish 3 of them by the year 2020.

What IS Conscious Co-Creation & Why Is It Important?

For better or worse, you are constantly co-creating your life circumstances with the Creator of All There Is in your every thought, word and action. Yet, what if you could do so more consciously? What would it be like if you knew, just like you know when you’re thirsty, how to tap into Creator Source to co-create the mental, emotional and financial breakthroughs you deserve? Now imagine if we ALL could consciously co-create the lives we desire on every level?

That would completely eradicate the need to complain or get caught up in power struggles. Yet, because of a loss of faith and a lack of trust from life experiences, it feels futile to fully commit to co-creating our desires. Facing the shadow of my greatest wounds involving racism, sexism and ageism has allowed me to experienced first-hand the power of conscious co-creation.  And over time, these same shadow experiences have transformed into my greatest gifts that I’m committed to sharing now.

So far, I’ve finished one of the six books, Afraid of Our Own Shadow: A Manifesto and Guide for Conscious Co-Creation. As a 40 pg. e-book, AOOS can be considered the practical, hands-on, how-to part to It’s All G.O.D.: A Conscious Creator’s Guide to Healing the Effects of White Supremacy. Part memoir, part paradigm shifting guidebook, IAG promises to be my most thought provoking book to date. In today’s social climate, I had no idea how significant the book title would be back in 2012, when I first kicked off the IAG 9 Month Countdown campaign that I have since put on hold after my mother died to focus on first publishing Prayers of a Virgin: 52 Weeks of Poetic Inspiration and Personal Planetary Guidance with the Destiny Cards

Inspired by the death of my mother, POV is a 52 week inspirational guidebook and astrological calendar specific to your birthdate that helps you understand your life cycles to make better choices using Cardology, an ancient astrological system coined the Destiny Cards by Robert Camp. A portion of the POV’s proceeds will go toward the Pushing Daisy Drive, to build an Eco-friendly home/health education center in Antigua, West Indies in honor of my mother Daisy’s legacy of service.

POV Monday Promo: A Ten Part Series Countdown

POV Monday Promo is a 10-part series that kicks off on June 10th. The campaign’s goal is to raise funds via Amazon pre-order sales in order to edit, format and publish the printed book and to build a buzz around the book that will be published by my “second” Earthday- August 17th (more on that later). 

Here are three ways you can contribute:

  • Purchase & Review: Amazon’s pre-order program allows you to purchase the book before it comes out at a discounted rate, along with other perks that I will make available for early investors who also write a review for the book.
  • Give Feedback: During the 10-part series, I will “re-blook” the first 3 Chapters of POV and generate polls, surveys and contests for the needed feedback before the publishing stage.
  • Share the Love: Whether you share my posts, podcasts, Pinterest pics or Youtube videos, the more the book campaign is buzzing around, the better it bee-comes.

Thanks for your time! Stay tuned for the POV Monday Promo starting June 10th!

Bellony’s Bell Has Rung As Earth Day Has Begun!

The last post I made was on my Mother’s Earthday, just 9 days after having survived hurricane Maria in Dominica. Now, 19 months later on Mother Earth’s Day, I’m renewing my commitment to both! And what better day than on Earth Day, April 22nd, to revamp my commitment to Mamma Earth and Mamma Daisy. Also, the Sun conjuncts Uranus in Taurus for the first time in what will be a 7 year period of major planetary shifts!

My Vipassana Bell Story

Since the time I first started sitting silent Vipassana meditation retreats nearly 20 years ago, I’ve always avoided volunteering to ring the wake up bell at 4:00 a.m. daily. Fortunately for me, a Buddhist nun volunteered to ring the bell for the last course I sat that officially started on April Fools’ Day. But the joke was on me! For the first time ever, the bell was so faint, I could barely hear when she rang it because her building was further away from my room. At first, I wanted to complain and ask the course manager to ask her to ring the bell a little louder and walk a little further so it could be heard a little better. But then I thought, “I don’t even like ringing the bell myself, so I should give the sister a break.” Yet, throughout the duration of the course, the thought kept arising in my mind and I kept letting it pass away. Then, on the very last day, I got the download of what it all symbolized!

Bellony’s Bell and Trump’s Trumpet

As one of G.O.D.’s many angel ambassadors, I volunteered (just like Trump) to be born into a body and to ring my unique bell so that I could assist Mother Earth in awakening humanity at this final hour. It all made sense to take on this task in the heavens before I got here. But then I forgot just how daunting it can be living in an era with so much darkness and density.

“Cunning and wisdom have something in common. Cunning uses knowledge to divide and conquer; while wisdom uses it to bring unity in the community.”  

DeBorah Bellony

Bellony’s Bell is similar to Trump’s Trumpet. There are angels of love and light and there are angels of darkness and destruction. Either way, and by whatever means, G.O.D. uses it all to awaken the masses at this most crucial hour. The Generator, Operator and Destroyer of All That Is has always been in control and the truth of the matter is– It’s ALL G.O.D. Humanity just needs to decide whether it will stay inside the heart space and ascend with Mother Earth or stay outside the heart space and leave this place in disgrace.

“Your Vibe Attracts Your Tribe”  

Unknown

Thanks to the Buddhist nun, I have a better appreciation for how other “earth angels” must feel when I don’t show up wholeheartedly to play the role of an angel of love and light.

At the Vipassana retreat, I was relying on the bell to awaken me, but sometimes I didn’t hear it at all, so I’d miss my morning meditation. This experience helps me to see just how important it is for me to shine my light and to “Ring My Bell” as an act of service to my tribe.

From the word Earth you get–heart, hear and art. How will you hear Mother Earth with your heart to make a new start and then share your greatest gifts with Gaia so your life becomes a work of art?

Trump is playing his role as an angel of darkness and destruction perfectly. He has loudly blown his trumpet issuing the final call to humanity to awaken at this final hour. So what is your call? Or calling rather? Is it to watch the news and complain everyday? Or is it to drop down into the heart space and choose a more constructive way?

  • If you have an instrument of inspiration to play, then NOW is the time to play it.
  • If you have an unnecessary or unwanted load to bear, then NOW is the time to unload it
  • If you have a light in your heart to shine, then NOW is the time to shine it.

My 2020 Vision Revisited

My new vision for Who I Am Communications is to publish 3 books, sharing powerful practices and principles for conscious co-creation by the year 2020. So far, I’ve published Afraid Of Our Own Shadow: A Manifesto and Guide to Conscious Co-Creation and I’m currently working on publishing my second book, Prayers of a Virgin: 52 Weeks of Poetic Inspiration and Personal Planetary Guidance with the Destiny Cards.

Inspired by the death of my mother, POV is a 52-week inspirational guidebook and astrological calendar specific to your birthdate that helps you understand your life cycles to make better choices using Cardology, an ancient astrological system coined the Destiny Cards by Robert Camp.

POV Monday Promo: Revamping & Re-posting a Series

Back in 2017, I posted a 10-part series that was meant to lead up to an Indiegogo crowd fundraiser that never happened post hurricane Maria! Now, I am re-vamping and re-posting the series that officially kicks off on June 10th. The campaign’s new goal is to raise funds via Amazon pre-order sales in order to edit, format and publish the printed book and to build a buzz around the book that will be published by my “second” Earthday- August 17th (more on that later).

HAPPY EARTHDAY MAMA!

Mama Daisy w/ World Flags Above Her

Today, my mother Daisy would have been 80 yrs. old. Although a day doesn’t go by that I don’t think about her or wish that she was here, after surviving hurricane Maria and witnessing the destruction and transformation taking place on the planet as a result of mankind’s choices, I’m glad that her spirit is on the other side.

Maybe she’s what kept me safe while in Dominica? Me, my cousin Bird and his wife Susan were all fortunate not to have any windows blow out or lose any part of the roof during the hurricane. With five coconut trees in front of the house, not one fell on the the house. There was no water damage and plenty of oranges, avocados, papaya and coconuts to last us for awhile, with a fresh water spring walking distance from the house. All I can say is G.O.D. is good! My prayers, love and positive energy are with all the survivors of the hurricane season thus far and to all the friends and family of those that didn’t make it in south Asia, Africa, the USA, the Caribbean, Mexico, Peru and anywhere else I’ve forgotten to mention. Although this is a major trauma to mankind, Mother Earth so needs this cleansing and she has no choice but to evolve, with or without us.

BEFORE MARIA

I’m grateful for a most beautiful Sunday before the storm. I went to the river, visited friends and had lunch with family and loved ones while experiencing the most beautiful weather. That day is how I choose to remember Dominica and hold space for what it can become once again.

AFTER MARIA

While my cousin’s house was still in tact, nothing could have prepared me for what I witnessed after venturing out to see the rest of Roseau! It felt like being in the midst of a war zone. With so much destruction it was encouraging to see the spirit of the people taking their lost so gracefully and being thankful for life!

MARIA- MY GAME CHANGER

What a difference one day can make. When my mother died on November 14th, 2013, it was The Day That Changed Everything. Now that I’ve survived hurricane Maria, I’m calling it “My Game Changer.” There is no way that I can walk this planet earth the same way again. And to be honest, it’s not just because of Maria, it’s because of what Mother Earth, who loves us so dearly, has been forced to do because of mankind’s choices. This was my wake up call to firmly embrace that humanity is truly on the brink of a major breakthrough or a major breakdown- or both! Simultaneously, for some it will be a breakthrough and for others it will be a breakdown. When we side with what’s a win for our heart’s true desire, nature and the environment, we win; when we side with what works against these things, we lose.

“It’s the small, value-based choices we do have control over today, that eventually create the larger societal conditions and events we don’t have control over tomorrow.”– Deborah Bellony

Movies like Cowspiracy and just being in tune with Mother Nature have opened my eyes to all the ways our everyday choices and indifference allow evil to run rampant. My mother used to say, “He who doesn’t hear will feel!” Well, we are feeling it now and it’s never too late to start again right where we are at.

KEEP IT SIMPLE SISTER!

Before Maria, I had lots of travel plans and projects that I’m now putting On Hold to focus on the “One Thing” that allows me to share my greatest gifts. That goal is still to write six books by 2020. Instead of launching an Indiegogo Campaign today as I had planned on my mother’s birthday for Prayers of a Virgin: 52 Weeks of Poetic Inspiration and Personal Planetary Guidance With the Destiny Cards, I am going to focus on going within a spending more time reaching my writing goals. By getting back to the basics, I don’t allow procrastination, overwhelm, aiming too high or too low to stop me from accomplishing what I most desire. There will be more to the story in the near future, but for now, it comes on a need to know bases for myself as well as my tribe. Thanks for reading!

Until Next Time and Happy 80th Earthday Mama!
