POV Monday Promo is a ten part series leading up to an Indiegogo book crowdfundraiser for, Prayers of a Virgin: 52 Weeks of Poetic Inspiration and Personal Planetary Guidance with the Destiny Cards. The promo’s goal is to build a buzz around the campaign, “blook” the first 3 Chapters by my mother’s Earthday on September 26th, and get the needed funds and feedback before publishing.
In Pt. 5 of this series, I’ve posted Ch. 1: My 2020 Vision of POV. I look forward to your feedback! Please post a comment or contact me directly if you don’t like to leave comments. Either way, I am thrilled and thankful to be sharing my greatest gifts at a crucial time on this planet. Next week, I go a little deeper in Ch. 2: The Reclaim Game, which will be broken up into 3 parts. Enjoy!
Chapter 1: My 2020 Vision
My mission is to motivate myself and other magnetic, melanin aware light beacons to become better conscious co-creators of the life they desire, while removing race, gender and generational blockages on the path to planetary oneness.
To be a light beacon that is “magnetic and melanin aware,” it doesn’t matter if you are Black or White, female or male, old or young; because, when you honor the feminine and melanin within you, you help to bring yourself and the planet into balance and wholeness, which is so needed at this time of planetary evolution.
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 hungry) how to tap into Creator Source to co-create the mental, emotional and financial breakthroughs you know you deserve?
Now imagine if we could ALL consciously co-create the lives we desire on every level. Do you think we would spend so much time complaining or getting into power struggles with others? No! However, because of a loss of faith and a lack of trust, it feels almost impossible or even futile to fully commit to attaining our desires.
This is one of the biggest reasons I’m dedicated to my mission. Facing the shadow of some of my greatest wounds involving racism, sexism and ageism has over time transformed into my greatest gifts, allowing me to delve deep into the unknown to find the truth behind the veil of illusions. If I can inspire just one of you to reclaim all those dreams you’ve allowed life to steal from you, then that makes my work all the more meaningful.
What Exactly Is Your 2020 Vision?
Since I’ve worn glasses since the age of 5, I’m definitely not talking about my eyesight! Aside from striving to be a better living example of the light and change I want to see in the world, my 2020 vision is to have published 6 books on the concept of conscious co-creation by the year 2020.
So far, I’ve finished two of the six books. The first book, Afraid of Our Own Shadow: A Manifesto and Guide for Conscious Co-Creation (AOOOS), was published in 2013. AOOOS is a 40 page e-book that covers the seven steps to become a better conscious co-creator, the three societal wounds that prevent conscious co-creation, and the four pitfalls and how to avoid them. AOOOS can be considered the practical, hands-on, how-to part of a much larger work entitled, It’s All G.O.D: A Conscious Creator’s Guide to Healing the Effects of White Supremacy (IAG). Part memoir, part paradigm shifting guidebook, IAG promises to be my most thought provoking book to date.
Prayers of a Virgin: 52 Weeks of Poetic Inspiration and Personal Planetary Guidance with the Destiny Cards (POV) is the second completed book toward my six book mission. As a 52 week inspirational guidebook and calendar specific to your birthdate, POV helps you understand your life path and cycles to make better choices using an ancient astrological system coined the Destiny Cards by Robert Camp.
The last three of the six books are part of a series entitled, Conversations With a Virgin: On Race, Gender and Generations. This three part series will be a collection of interviews with some of the most radiant, outspoken, heart-centered light beacons of every race, gender, and generation. We’ll not only cover conscious co-creation, but we’ll also delve deeply and openly into the topics of racism, sexism and ageism and whatever else makes its way to the surface.
POV was inspired by the death of my mother, Daisy Elizabeth King Bellony, who made her transition on Thursday, November 14th, 2013 (the same day of the week and year as her mother, exactly 56 years earlier!). On Jan. 14th of the following year, I started a 10-Month Manifest Your Desires Campaign in her memory. My mission was to encourage, inspire and support others in manifesting their desires by blogging about my 10-month commitment to manifest my desires in honor of my mother. While bestselling author Elizabeth Gilbert , “Ate, Prayed, and Loved” her way through Italy, India and Indonesia, I set out to “Travel Write, Fundraise and Book Publish” my way through those 10 months of the campaign.
Pushing Daisy Drive
A portion of the sales of this book will go toward the Pushing Daisy Drive (Driven By Miss Daisy’s Daughter), which is an on-going, long-term vision to build an eco-friendly home and health educational center in Antigua, West Indies, in honor of my mother’s legacy of service. A world of thanks to you if you have purchased this book! Your support brings me one step closer to manifesting my desire. If you haven’t purchased this book or would like to learn about the seven ways you can support the drive, go to my travel blog.
“If you get down and you quarrel everyday, you’re saying prayers to the devils I say.” -Bob Marley
The inspiration for this book title came from my first love back in my college days when he called me out of the blue after not hearing from him in years. 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 in the past 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’s the values, beliefs and judgments that society projected on me around sexuality that I’ve empathically picked up on and allowed to hinder my full expression. Now that I’ve broken free from all the mental madness, I’m also more free to share my most poetic expressions without concern for what others might think. So, from now on, I’ll be taking Dr. Seuss’ advice from his quote, “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
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 emotions. I like to use “trigger” words in my book titles that may bring up predetermined ideas in our minds in order for us to address them collectively.
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.
In the book, The Great Cosmic Mother: Rediscovering the Religion of the Earth, authors Monica Sjoo and Barbara Mor wrote:
“Virgin” meant not married, not belonging to a man-a woman who was “one-in-herself.” The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virile. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence.
To me, true virginity has less to do with purity based on sexual intercourse 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 of life experience.
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.
WHAT POV HOPES TO ACHIEVE
For the Writer
Sharing my greatest gifts is my highest experience and expression of LOVE. This heals me in the writing and hopefully inspires and enlightens you in the reading. I’m thankful to not only have the opportunity to channel my poetic inspirations, but to also share my wisdom and knowledge to bring more awareness about an ancient and amazingly accurate astrological system, hidden in the ordinary deck of playing cards!
For the Reader
Coined the Destiny Cards by Robert Camp, this powerful tool that I’ve been graced to learn has helped to guide and direct my life for well over 15 years. By becoming more aware of this ancient astrological system hidden in the deck of playing cards, POV hopes to provide tools for you to become a better conscious co-creator by understanding your life path and cycles to make better choices. You still have to choose. However, I hope this book opens you to a new perspective, a new paradigm, and a new way of looking at the world that inspires you to choose more wisely.
For the World
As with all my books, I hope POV serves as a guide to inspire those who are where I was or who are where I’m going on the path to planetary oneness. I hope POV contributes to a new dialog that helps to shift the current paradigm on how we see the Earth and her inhabitants and brings us closer together. This book wants to assist in creating a world where people take responsibility for their actions and are actually able to do so because of having a higher understanding of how everything is interconnected and especially connected to G.O.D.
