POV Promo (Pt. 10 of 10)- Blook Part 2 of Ch. 3: Tools for F.O.O.L.S

POV Monday Promo’s  purpose is to build a buzz around publishing Prayers of a Virgin: 52 Weeks of Poetic Inspiration and Personal Planetary Guidance with the Destiny Cards. It started out as a 10 part series leading up to an Indiegogo book crowdfundraiser; however, after surviving hurricane Maria, I decided to presell the book on Amazon instead and complete “blooking” the first 3 Chapters before starting a new series- “Flight of the Bumble Bee: Pictures & POV Perceptions from Peru.” I’ll have more information on that soon!

In Pt. 10 of this series, I’ve posted Part 2 of Ch. 3: Tools for F.O.O.L.S. Remember, this is the rough draft version, so I  look forward to your feedback! Please post a comment or contact me directly if you don’t like to leave comments. Enjoy!

Part 2 of Chapter 3: Tools for F.O.O.L.S

Step 5: Understand Your Life Path and Cycles

“A fool with a tool is still a fool.”- Grady Booch

Key: Making Better Choices

In the Destiny Cards System, an ancient form of astrology and numerology preserved in the ordinary deck of playing cards, each year begins on your birthday and is broken down into seven 52-day periods. It’s my hope that by better understanding your life path and cycles, you’ll be given the tools to make better choices.Yet the bottom line is, you still have to choose! And that’s when the journey begins.

My Approach to Astrology

Before I give a more detailed introduction to the system, I want to share with you my approach to astrology and the Destiny Card system. First of all, you are NOT your sign or card. You are a divine reflection of the Creator and inherently capable of creating a life that includes ANYTHING you desire to co-create. Yet, just as the doctor makes the uniform and not the uniform the doctor, so too the person makes the card or sign and not the card or sign the person. You, your Higher Self and the Creator of All There Is, agreed on a particular birthdate that was most beneficial for your person to have life experiences and NOT for life experiences to have you. But that is exactly what happens until you become a better conscious co-creator of the life you desire.

Also, just as a farmer’s knowledge is useless if s/he doesn’t till the soil, plant the seed, and nurture it, so too is the knowledge gained from astrological consultations useless if you don’t apply it in your life, and that is exactly what this book hopes to help you do.

What’s So Important About Understanding Your Life Path and Cycles?

Understanding why you chose a certain life path based on your birthdate brings clarity so that you can capitalize on strengths, minimize weaknesses and tap into the power of who you truly are.

The person on the s/hero’s journey that has reclaimed their Afrikan/Virginal mindset, is unclaimed by addictions, and has sent a powerful prayer out into the universe by focusing on what they want to consciously co-create with the Creator of All There Is becomes even more powerful when they understand their life path and cycles.

Here’s an simple example of what I’m talking about. Let’s say you don’t know for sure whether your light bill or your phone bill is due this week and you pay the wrong one and your lights get turned off. That can be an inconvenience right? Understanding your life path and cycles to make better choices is important because it gives you a type of guideline of when certain cosmic bills and paychecks are due. Or more accurately, can be due, based on your attitude, your perspective, and your actions. Because one man’s bill can be seen as another man’s paycheck and one woman’s paycheck can be seen as another woman’s bill.

There is no magic here. With the right attitude and commitment, it doesn’t matter what hand you are given if you play your cards right. But first you have to know what the cards are and how to play the game. This leads us to the meat of the method and that is learning about the Destiny Card System and how to use this book.

The Destiny Card System- An Introduction

Why This System & Why Now?

The Destiny Cards system is said to have originated in Atlantis and has until now been kept hidden by a mystical order. Based on astrology and numerology, and preserved in the deck of playing cards, the system is built on a mathematical formula that is NOT founded on divination like the more familiar tarot cards. The Order of the Magi has been responsible for preserving the system throughout the ages. Olney Richmond wrote one of the first books about the system in 1893 entitled The Mystic Test Book or The Magic of the Cards. Up until the 1990’s, the system was mostly unheard of until Robert Lee Camp (coining the system ‘The Destiny Cards’) made it more accessible through his books and software programs.

The Cards System is Very Ancient, Yet Very New

Although this system is very ancient, dating back to the time of Atlantis, most people are not as familiar with it as they are astrology and numerology because of its secrecy. The late grand master, Olney Richmond, alleges that the system is mentioned in the Book of Revelations, 10:4, 10 & 11:

“And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write, but I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me ‘Seal up those things uttered by the seven thunders and write them not.’ And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand and devoured it, and to my taste it was sweet as honey; but as soon as I devoured it, it became bitter to my inside. And he said unto me, ‘You must prophecy again before many peoples and nations and tongues and kings.”

What is interesting about this system is that it uses January 1st as the beginning of the year. Many people have criticized this date, associating it with the Gregorian calendar. What most people don’t know is that on December 31st and January 1st our sun is critically influenced by the stars Sirius and Vega. On December 31st, Sirius is at its highest (heliacal rising) overhead at midnight, while Vega is located directly opposite, below the horizon. As Sirius is rising in the east, Vega is setting in the west. The star Vega will be our north star instead of Polaris in approximately 12,000 years. I believe the reason the destiny cards system is relevant and so accurate is because of its connection to these star systems.

The Cards System is Unknown, Yet Well Know 

Everybody is familiar with a deck of playing cards, which lends to it’s familiarity, yet hardly anyone is familiar with its mystical past, founded on astrology and an ancient mathematical formula. If I were to put it another way, I would say that every religion has its deeper knowing (i.e. Christianity and the Essene brotherhood, Islam and the Sufis, etc,). The Destiny Cards is the deeper knowing of astrology that many astrologers are not even familiar with. Robert Lee Camp, has made this system more accessible to the everyday person through his books, software and unwavering commitment to increase awareness about this accurate and time tested system. Like Robert, I am dedicated to uncloaking the mystery around this system so that everyone can use it in a practical way to understand their life cycles to make better choices. Unlike astrology, the Cards are much easier for the lay person to grasp and immediately start using in their lives in a powerful and practical way.

The Destiny Cards uses your birth date to reveal your personality traits. It also gives insight into your life’s purpose and the challenges you have chosen to work with in your life and relationships. Like Astrology, the Destiny Cards system is based on the Earth’s relationship to the Sun, as well as the other planets in our solar system. Note the similarities for yourself.

52 Cards in a Deck 52 Weeks in a Year
4 Suits 4 Seasons
13 Cards in a Suit 13 Moons in a Year
13 Cards in a Suit 13 Weeks in a Season

Also, if you add all the cards in the deck for their numerical value with each Jack, Queen, and King valuing 11,12, and 13 respectively, you will get 364, with the Joker making 365.

All of these similarities are no coincidence, and neither is the time and day we are born. Our ancient ancestors understood that based on the Creator’s laws, each second, minute, hour, day, week, month and year holds a certain vibration that correlates to the planets, and anything initiated during these cycles holds a certain fate or destiny in relation to that planetary alignment. Some may ask “What about free will? Are we not the masters of our fate?”

Herein lies the irony of the whole system. By understanding the influences that affect you, specific to your date of birth, you are more able to exercise your free will. For example, you may not be able to stop it from raining; however, having knowledge of a coming rainstorm can lead you to “choose” to carry an umbrella and overcoat.

As I mentioned earlier, the year begins on your birthday in this system and is broken down into seven 52-day periods, each ruled by a planet. For every card displayed in your yearly spread, there is a potential ‘positive or negative’ aspects, as well as a variety of avenues for it’s influence to manifest in your life. Only YOU can determine the outcome of how these influences mainfest and affect you based on your attitude and the choices you make daily. This ultimately leads to more positive options.

POV Promo (Pt. 9 of 10)- Blook Part 1 of Ch. 3: Tools for F.O.O.L.S

POV Monday Promo is a ten part series that was 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. After surviving  hurricane Maria, I’ve decided to presell the book on Amazon instead and continue to build a buzz by “blooking” the first 3 Chapters. I’ll have more information on that soon!

In Pt. 9 of this series, I’ve posted Part 1 of Ch. 3: Tools for F.O.O.L.S. Remember, this is the rough draft version, so I  look forward to your feedback! Please post a comment or contact me directly if you don’t like to leave comments. Enjoy!

Part 1 of Chapter 3: Tools for F.O.O.L.S

Everybody plays the fool sometime. There’s no exceptions to the rule…” -The Main Ingredient 

The Fool Tarot Card is very similar to the Joker Card in the deck of Playing Cards. In the Destiny Card System, the only day of the year designated as the Joker Card is December 31st. It’s the only birthdate that doesn’t have a life path destiny, which means you have to use traditional astrology if you want to find out about the life path of people born on this day. In Robert Camp’s book, Exploring the Little Book of The Seven Thunders, he states:

“The solar value of the Joker is 0. …The solar value of 0 denotes that the Joker is no card at all. Being no card, the Joker is like a fertile field into which any seed may be planted. Thus the Joker can become any card that he or she chooses.”

Why F.O.O.L.S?

“We start as fools and become wise through experience.” -African proverb

I know you’re probably wondering why is the word F.O.O.L.S is an acronym? That’s because it stands for, Freeing Ourselves Of Lack Spiritually. In my book AOOOS, I explain how spirituality is simply awareness without judgment. When you are aware of what you are up to, eventually and with time, you act in a more spiritual way. Essentially, it’s not what you want, but why you want it and not what you do, but why you do it that makes the biggest difference in your life. I call it being aware of your intentions to bring about better manifestations.

Your S/hero’s Journey-Five Action Steps
The greatest story always told is what mythologist Joseph Campbell is famous for calling the Hero’s Journey (and what I call the S/hero’s Journey). In his work, The Hero With a Thousand Faces, he shares his discovery that the theme of the hero is universal and told in every tradition and culture, even in their sacred texts. Campbell explains the correlation between the prophet’s journey to mankind’s journey this way:
“The godly powers sought and dangerously won are revealed to have been within the heart of the hero all the time. He is “the king’s son” who has come to know who he is and therewith has entered into the exercise of his proper power- “God’s son,” who has learned to know how much that title means. From this point of view the hero is symbolical of that divine creative and redemptive image which is hidden within us all, only waiting to be known and rendered into life.”

I liken the Reclaim Game to the S/hero’s Journey. It’s a journey that takes courage and a level of commitment that grows as we grow to acknowledge and accept the divinity within us. Before we go deeper into the Destiny Card System, let’s go over what we’ve learned so far by putting it all into five action steps that are helpful on the S/hero’s Journey. Each step has a keyword or phrase to remember when times get hard, as they invariably do.

STEP 1: Embrace the Beginner’s Mind

“The feminine values are the fountain of bliss. Know the masculine, keep to the feminine.” -Laozi

Key: Receptivity

Whether you’re male or female, as you become more receptive to learning and growing, you begin to tap into the power and resourcefulness of the feminine principle. We all know that masculine and feminine are in everything and necessary for life, but more so than being male or female, I’m talking about feminine principles on the journey that allow you to be more successful. Laozi’s quote is powerful because he doesn’t discredit the masculine. In fact, the masculine principle of courage is most important because without it, you never begin the s/hero’s journey, just like without the courageous journey of the male sperm to impregnate the female egg, there would be no life. Yet, it’s the wise and mysterious nine month journey of the feminine that gives birth.

STEP 2: Reset Your Reality to an Afrikan-centered World View

“Equanimity; emotional stability that comes from a balanced mind in situations of gain or loss. The serenity of knowing ones true self at all times. First, through achieving intellectual knowledge and then through direct experience.” -Author Unknown (to Me)

Key: Equanimity

I love the above definition of equanimity because it shows how peace starts in the mind first and then shows up in your reality (over time). It wisely alludes to the fact that it takes time to act on what you intellectually know you need to do. Or to put it another way, it takes courage to do what you know in your heart is right. What helps to strengthen your courage is having the right worldview or asili that allows you to understand that you are not separate from G.O.D, nature or others. I’m calling this an “Afrikan-centered” worldview because it pays tribute to our mother continent and links all mankind as we now know it to a common Afri-kin origin. By resetting your reality to an “Afrikan-centered” worldview, you are reconnecting (at least intellectually) to a universal concept of reality that indigenous people embraced. Prayerfully with time, commitment and courage it becomes your direct experience.

STEP 3: Reclaim Your Virgin Mind

“You can know all of the things that this substance is doing to you, to your health, your life, your family, your community and your society and you are powerless to do anything about it. That’s the definition of addiction.” -Robert Lustig

Key: Commitment to Ending All Addictions

It may be a challenge, but here is where it starts. Remember the last chapter-The Tale of Two Choices? A choice to commit must be made that allows for true personal and spiritual growth to occur. Some of us mistake spiritual practice with spirituality; however, meditating everyday, doing rituals, practicing yoga and even praising G.O.D doesn’t make you spiritual. You are spiritual when through awareness you are able to recognize when you are at a crossroads situation and you have to make the choice to act based on your old self-image or based on your new self-image of what you want to experience.

STEP 4: Make a Prayer

“Anything that you dwell on, give voice and energy to, or move towards with strong intention, presents itself to the universe as a prayer.” – by Misha McGlown

Key: Align Your Person, Your Purpose, and Your ‘Prayer Power’ with the Creator of All There Is.

The key above is actually step number three of seven steps I share to become a better conscious co-creator in my book AOOOS. Let me break this down a bit. Align your Person (which is your new self-image based on what you want to experience), your Purpose (which is what you want to create or your intention) and your Prayer Power (which is your attention or what you focus on), with the Creator of All That Is. Your purpose is your intention and what you focus on becomes your prayer or power. You pray to war and drama when you constantly talk about and watch war and drama on the screen. You pray to abundance and harmony when you constantly focus your attention and energy on manifesting a new self-image based on those desires. Now that you have a new commitment to choosing what brings you joy, you tap into the power within by aligning it with Creator of All That Is.

POV Promo- Blook Ch. 1- My 2020 Vision (Pt. 5 of 10)

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’s INSPIRATION

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.

POV’s TITLE

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.

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 an ancient astrological system coined the Destiny Cards by Robert Camp. This book will be accompanied by a .PDF formatted, 52 Week 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.

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.

My 2020 Vision- POV 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 for promoting upcoming publications. 

My 2020 Vision

Since I’ve worn glasses since I was 5 yrs. old, I’m definitely not talking about my eyesight! My vision is to publish six books, sharing powerful practices and principles for conscious co-creation 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, AOOOS 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. To learn more about the other books envisioned visit Who I Am Communications.

 

 

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 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 Nine Part Series Countdown

Through a series of 10 weekly posts leading up to an Indiegogo Crowdfundraiser, the goal of  POV Monday Promo is to build a buzz around the book and “blook” the first 3 Chapters by my mother’s Earthday on September 26th. The final goal is to raise the funds on Indiegogo to edit, format and publish the printed book by Nov. 14th, 2017. The 9-part series officially starts on June 12th.

Here are three ways you can contribute:

  • Give Feedback: Leading up to the Indiegogo Campaign, I’ll be “blooking” the first 3 Chapters of POV and generating polls, surveys and even contests for the needed feedback before the publishing stage. Indiegogo also has a feature where I can share the draft crowdfunding campaign page with my tribe before it goes live to gain your input and suggestion.
  • 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.
  • Purchase & Promote: Indiegogo’s referral incentive program makes it possible for me to track the people my fans refer to the campaign and that allows me to give perks to tribe members that are most active!

Thanks for your time! Stay tuned for the POV Monday Promo Schedule on June 12th!

Before Nov. 14th: A 7 Week Cycle Begins (Pt.1 of 10)

Today’s post is the first in a 10-part series involving serendipitous and mysterious events and occurrences that have taken place on Nov. 14th (the day my mother died). These posts will be categorized as events that happened before Nov. 14, the day of Nov. 14th, and after Nov. 14, 2013. Enjoy!

Tuesday Tribute

The first serendipitous occurrence to take place before Nov. 14th has to do with the Destiny Cards, an ancient astrological system hidden in the ordinary deck of playing cards. For over 15 years, I have studied and assisted individuals in understanding their life cycles to make better choices through traditional astrology and this fascinating system. In the Destiny Card system, there are 13 year cycles, 7 years cycles, yearly cycles, 52 day cycles, 7 week cycles and weekly cycles that are all calculated based on a mathematical formula. Each personal cycle begins on the day of the week that you were born (or on your birthday for the yearly cycle).

Before my mother passed away, I vaguely remember looking at my upcoming cycles on my computer software and noticing that a new 7 week cycle would begin for me on Thursday, Nov. 14th. At that time, I didn’t know how important this would be (for more than one reason) until months later!
