90 DAY VISION
It’s hard to believe there are less than 90 Days left in the 10-Month Manifest Your Desires Campaign. In this post, I share the accomplishments so far and the activities I have planned for the last 90 days of the campaign. Also, don’t miss out on the Conscious Co-Creator Contest that started on Aug. 22nd. Once again, your feedback and comments will make a difference in what products or events I create for the ending of the campaign, so I look forward to hearing from you!
The original goal for Phase 1 of the Pushing Daisy Drive was:
To fund the start-up costs and planning involved to build an Eco-friendly home and educational center in Antigua, West Indies, that will also serve as a private operating foundation in honor of my mother’s legacy of service.
THE GOOD NEWS
A family member made a donation to cover the land taxes and lawyer fees associated with the center site, which is a great blessing. Also, as a result of extensive research, I found out that the best organizational structure with the least amount of paperwork and international red tape would be a health education ministry instead of a private operation foundation. Essentially, we will be able to do everything (and even more) that we would be able to do as an operating foundation, while saving a lot of time and money in the long run. However, there are still legal costs involved to complete the process.
Raise $2,750 by Nov. 14th for Legal Fees
My goal is to raise $2, 750 by developing a PWYW (Pay What You Want) product, event or service with great content and offer a limited time only discount on my coaching services during the last days of the campaign. Your feedback and participation will be much appreciated during this time, so stay tuned.
Develop a Product, Event or Service for the End of the Campaign
In the Mayan Calendar, there is a 50-Day period that happens at least once a year made up of portal and core days taking place from Oct. 31st to December 19th in 2014. The 20-day cycle of core days begins on Nov. 15th and ironically for this year, the Mayan season changes on Nov. 14th– the day before! At this time, the energy on the planet is more powerful to accelerate transformation and to be more receptive to cosmic knowledge for self mastery. During this 50 Day period, I’ll be developing a product, event or service that can assist participants collectively tap into this energy to ‘anchor reality in the now’ and manifest our desires.
The Serendipitous Date of Nov.14th: A 10 Part Series
I’ll be writing a 10 part series sharing serendipitous and mysterious events and occurrences that have taken place on Nov. 14th (the day my mother died). This series of Pushing Daisy Tuesday Tribute posts will be sure to amaze you!
The 10-Month Mission I set out to achieve when I first began this blog on Jan. 14th was:
To encourage, inspire and support others in manifesting their desires by blogging about my 10-month commitment to manifest my internal and external desires in honor of my mother.
THE GOOD NEWS
Two Internal Desires
I’ve had roughly 7 months training in learning how to do something for the love of it and not out of excessive obligation. This required a large amount of trust and acceptance. I alluded in a past post, Four Things I’ve Learned in the Last Six Months, that there were plenty of times of deep vulnerability (usually when my person wasn’t able to deliver on a editorial promise). These experiences have allowed me to love myself more–no matter what.
Allowing my desires to shine forth despite what others might think and being okay with myself no matter what has been a true act of intimacy that I’m only now beginning to understand. There is a reason why a lot of us don’t take risk and go after our desires. It’s because of all the internal ghosts and external remarks that come up from within and without that are unceasingly tempting us to give up. Sharing these posts (and not knowing whether anyone is reading or even caring) has allowed for a type of intimacy beyond words. My person has become stronger emotionally and more self-reliant, allowing me to T.A.P into happiness like never before.
Two External Desires
Staying in touch with how I wanted to feel during the course of this campaign has allowed me to be more in tune with my limitations and distractions without judgment. It’s also given me the ability to regroup, refocus and pick myself up and dust myself off when I’ve fallen short of my goals.
I’ve had to scale back on the travel writing and put off a lot of time I could have spent book writing, yet the good news is that I haven’t given up! I’ve actually become more realistic, prepared and able to see what is possible, even if it all doesn’t come within the 10-month time frame.
Conduct a Series of Successful Surveys & Polls by Sept. 8th
Blogging and book writing can be a solitary road, so getting your feedback assists me in writing and sharing what is most needed. As of today, only three people have taken the book survey and my goal is to get at least 100 people by Sept. 8th. In exchange for your feedback, I’m planning to give away one free spot for my upcoming retreat in Mexico.
More Consistent Creative Posts
For the last days of the campaign, you can expect more guest posts, creative poetic posts, pictures and videos on a more consistent basis. Now that I’m freeing up more of my time for what I’m passionate about, I can put some of that passion into my upcoming posts.
Conscious Co-Creator Contest
The Conscious Co-Creator Contest began August 22nd and the goal is to get feedback on your biggest challenges around conscious co-creation, as well as for my upcoming book Prayers of a Virgin: 52 Weeks of Poetic Inspiration and Personal Planetary Guidance with the Destiny Cards. The prize is a free 90 Minute Initial Consultation OR one free tuition (travel and accommodation not included) to my upcoming Conscious Co-Creation Retreat @ The Sanctuary in Puerto Escondido, Mexico, Sept. 19th-26th.
In junior high, I used to wonder why my graduation was called commencement, when I was actually completing school. Now I understand, it’s because the focus was on celebrating what’s been completed and preparing for what is to come. Although I won’t complete my book or become a successful travel writer by the time I complete this campaign, I will be commencing a journey of taking my writing and publishing to another level that would have never been possible before the campaign. Just as I wrap up the campaign, I plan to begin a crowd funding for books campaign on Pubslush. This will give me more exposure for my book and allow people the opportunity to buy the book ahead of time, as a way of investing in the vision. With this initial investment, I’ll have the resources needed to self-publish and get it on the market sooner. Another great benefit of the Pubslush platform is that I’ll have the opportunity to get more feedback in order to produce a better product.
