What a sensational year it has been with all that we have been up to.... with the Eaupening, Stock Harmony, Peace In OUR Lifetime, 11:11 Awaking and Vividlife.me... WOW. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/plantingseedsforpeace/2009/12/31/being-with-you-this-new-year-creating-2010-togethe

So this morning in order to express our gratitude Lynne, Deremiah, Ian, Darryl and myself came together to do a BEing with YOU radio show on Planting Seeds for Peace Radio. It has a wonderful tribute to all of our partners and contributors.

There has been so many outstanding things this year that we just had to take a moment to celebrate all of the abundance that took place throughout the year! Do take a moment to pause with us to remember all of the life lessons that the universe through our way.

Deremiah talks about, "Living in the moment...living in creativity," and living a life of pure abundance. His life's mission is to leave the world better than how he found it!

Darryl added that, releasing and stop making excuses for what is happening allows us to see that' "Life is a Choice!" "This year I will not except any excuses or negativity into my life. I will move forward with no hesitations or reasons why I can't. Everything I desire is waiting for me to accept into my life, and I will confidently do so when it is required. Doubt and blame will no longer hold me back from reaching my goals. Habitual... thoughts will be in the past where they belong, leaving room for a bright future..."

Ian spoke about "First comes INSPIRATION....than comes PERSPIRATION." As well as his new book that will be available FREE in the new year.. listen to the show to find out more...

As I write this blog, I am re-listening to the radio show and am blown away with the outstanding creations that took place over the last year... I know that I was apart of all of it, however with the action that took place to bring it all into fruition it blows me away. Listen in to understand what I mean ... http://www.blogtalkradio.com/plantingseedsforpeace/2009/12/31/being-with-you-this-new-year-creating-2010-togethe

Vivid Life this Christmas

Are you living a life of your own Design? Or are YOU stuck on Default from your own limiting beliefs?

All too often we settle into the patterns that we have developed in our own lives because we are comfortable there or because we simply don’t know how to make some much needed adjustments that could really start attracting and living the best life that we all deserve and are at liberty to live. We all have the divine right to not only be happy and full of joy but to also create the life that we want. Through our thoughts and actions we have the ability within each of us to construct the outcomes in our life that we want to bring into fruition.

We are on earth to be students of life, to embrace our own education process and be consciously choose to be “Life Long Learners.” What I mean by this, is not that you have to do the 80 matriculation plan in a school setting …. but understand that every day of your life is an opportunity to learn and grow. Just because the teacher doesn’t write with a chalk brush and provide you a text book, doesn’t mean that you are off the hook. Our time on earth is uniquely our own course of self directed study! Have you ever thought of it that way? If not, let me stretch you a little further by saying, you know how you repeat similar patterns in your life over and over again? Maybe in the form of relationships, or trials, or incidents…. well have you ever thought that in every single experience you have had in your life either good or bad, YOU are the constant!

So what does that mean? YOU were present for every part of your life…YOU, no other human…. Simply YOU! So, if our own thoughts attract to us, the outcomes that we currently have in our life, doesn’t that tell you that by looking at the things that we were thinking and the frequency that we vibrate at, it is drawing nearer to us, more like experiences. Einstein’s definition of insanity is, doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, that is insanity. With that in mind would it not only make sense to Change what YOU are doing in order to get the results that you desire? HOW, how do I change things when this is how I have always been, this is what I have always done, and this is all that I know how to do? Well, firstly, it takes Awareness, the knowing that there is a need to do things differently. It may seem simple , however , without the knowing that there is a need to change…YOU will continue to get the same results.

As my Christmas Gift to YOU, I would like to invite You to start living a Vivid Life! One that YOU design, and one that brings YOU great Joy, abundance and understanding. My good friend Shayne Traviss is the founder of Vivid Life …Your online Resource, his recent television will explain how the sharing on Vivid Life will help YOU sit in the driver’s seat of YOUr own life. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aS5X3bEYfLQ

I would like to take a moment to sincerely Thank YOU for Being apart of the Eaupening and would like to share my gratitude for your sharing and for who YOU are Being in the world to make it the wonderful place that we can are learn and grow in. No matter what YOU and your family call this holiday season, I invite YOU to reflect on all of the many blessings that you have and how you can make a difference every day no matter what your personal state may be. I promise you that givers gain! People who give of themselves, not only make a difference but also make a difference in their own lives because nothing tops the feeling of knowing that YOU have helped another, even in the smallest of ways. It does make a difference, because every Action that YOU take, every Decision that YOU make, Everything that YOU do matters…. YOU Matter! Join http://www.vividlife.me to start receiving this free resource that will inspire YOU to live your own ultimate life!

Wishing YOU a Very Merry Christmas & a New Year filled with love & Learning!

Humbly Yours,
Marcia

How to be Charitable Regardless of the Economy!


Today more than ever Charities need your help…but before you say, “I am almost a Charity Case Myself…How can I help?” ….read the following mind stretching idea’s that will help YOU give even more than you did before the media started to use the ‘R’ word! (You know the word the one with Recess in it!)

1. What if you exchange your service for a tax receipt…. so, if you have book keeping or accounting skills. Or if you have a legal background… or if you have mad chef skills…. Speak with the charity to see is they would be willing to exchange your service for a little piece of paper that saves you money in tax season.

2. Christmas Jars… (my family and I read a book several years ago by that name.) All year long, we through our change into a jar… then in December, we pick a person or family to give the jar to. We don’t tell them why or who we are…we simply put the jar on the step and run away.

3. Recycle … go through your closets, and shelves..tidy up the shed and the garage… and take that stuff into a shelter or Goodwill or Salvation Army. You’ll help families in need and in some cases..you will get a tax receipt ….or store credit that you can hand to the next person walking in the door!

4. Give Flowers, when we lived in the city, on our trips to Costco, I would buy a bouquet of roses. (crazy inexpensive) then on the way home we would give half of them away. Several times, we would stop at the local coffee shop and my children would walk up to a sweet older woman ..hand her the roses and say something like, “ the universe wanted you to have a special gift today..and here they are.” Hand her the flowers and walk away. She would either have tears streaming down her cheeks or a shocked look on her face…but it didn’t matter. Then the rest of the way home, my kids and I would make up stories about how the rest of the ladies day would go. (This is something that the giver gets so much more out of…than the receiver…try it to see what I mean)

5. Charity Credit Cards… did you know that some credit cards give a small percentage of the money that you spend to charities… for example the Bank of America’s World WildLife Fund Visa gives that charity $100 when you sign up plus .$0.25 for every $100 that you spend. If you are using plastic anyways… might as well give it to a good cause.

6. Speaking of Plastic… why not donate some Air Miles to a charity like Ronald McDonald house so that families can fly to be together with their children when they are having treatments.

7. If YOU work for a large corporation, they may already have a matching charity gift program in place…that way for every dollar that you give.. your place of employment will double the donation. It is worth looking into or encouraging your employer to start.

8. What about sponsoring a child or a family as a group? Have several friends or co-workers come together to sponsor a child… that way people get help..and you don’t have to do it alone. (A World Vision Sponsor is tripling any donation given to World Vision in the month of December.)
9. Most of the time, we really don’t need any more things to add to our already too big “Stuff” collection …so why not ask that the givers on your list..donate to your favorite charity instead of allowing your “Stuff” to take over your space.
10. If you are a business owner and have excess inventory… why not donate it? For examples, if you have a shoe store..donate last year’s shoes to the sports team at school. If you have a jersey store..why not do the same thing? Schools need things like art supplies, musical instruments ..music, craft supplies, games, sports equipment and soo much more. {Need a school / organization to donate to? Here is my favorite.. Team Genesis http://www.teamgenesis.org/ expanding on the core methods of mentoring athletes, academic success, and the overall attainment of personal goals… inspiring the students of today to be the Leaders of tomorrow. }
11. Bikes that your children have out grown..give them to a family that may not be able to afford one for their children. (write a note on it and leave it on their step.)

12. Lots of companies honor their employees that volunteer… some give awards that include a cash gift to the winners charity. If you have a criminal records check done.. you can volunteer as a coach or assistant in everything from cheerleader to basketball.

13. Turn your Christmas party into a fundraiser or food drive…

14. Encourage company management to sponsor the Operation Red-nose campaign …(or whatever you call it in your town.) Local University or College supply’s designated drivers to bring home party goers and their cars…so they don’t drink and drive. It is all donation ‘s to support the athletic department.
15. Christmas Baking… if you are doing it anyways..why not make double the batch and drop it off with a family that may not have the time or resources to bake their own.

16. Coats… if you have winter clothing or blankets that are gently used, drop them off at the shelter to keep other people warm.

17. Gift Books to the school Library. You can add a tag that say’s this book was donated by “insert child’s name and year.” Then as your kids grow, they can she how many children get to check out the book that they donated.

18. Babysit… for a neighbor (unless you live in the UK where it is not legal,) so that they can finish up their shopping without packing the kids to the mall.

19. Helping Hands …Carl Van Haght and some other Earth Angels of HelloHello.net is mentoring people with their ‘online’ skills to help give a hand up rather than a hand out. HelloHello.Net is: A Social Networking Portal where you can upload your profile, search for friends, become friends, upload pictures and videos, chat, blog, email, use Twitter & Facebook on the site, check profiles, update your online status, start groups, post a poll, add an event, and much, much more. Compared to all other similar concepts that make billions of dollars per portal per year and don’t share this revenue with their members, HelloHello.Net pays 60% of all income from different advertising sources on HelloHello.Net back to all members. HelloHello.Net also has a strong mission regarding charity and fundraising that is why helping hands is so successful! 60% of all income from advertising and other ventures will be paid back to the members. 38% of all income will go to HelloHello.Net (administration). 2% will be given to well established and reputable charity organizations. 50 cents will go to charity each time a transaction is made via PinPay (Merchant). Check out http://bit.ly/2ceZFs to Social Network for $$$’s for Charity and YOU!
20. Never underestimate the gift of a smile, holding a door open, or helping someone carry some packages.

21. Shovel a neighbors drive way.

22. Clean your child’s room (if you don’t normally do it.)

23. Visit people in an old folk’s home. Adopt a grandparent!

24. Give as you earn Payroll giving is a simple, tax-efficient way of donating through your salary. Because your donation is taken from your salary before tax is deducted, it costs you less you get the tax credits.

25. Give More..Get More! Want your donation dollars to have the greatest impact possible? Make your contributions to GlobalGiving projects around the globe go further with $250,000 of available matching funds! http://www.globalgiving.org/

26. Give the world & YOUrself the Gift of Peace... by making a conscious choice to Stand for Peace. Download your own unique Peace Certificate at http://www.peaceinourlifetime.org/ all you do is add your name and country...no email... and you can post your own peace certificate proudly anywhere you choose.

So there YOU have it… my little list of how YOU can really make a great impact no matter what your resources look like. Plus…as an added bonus… every time YOU decide to make a difference for someone else, YOU are making a deposit into your Karmic Bank Account… and it never hurts to have some Karmic Cash laying around for the times that you need it. Remember that “Givers, Gain!” No matter how small the amount may be… every little bit of service that you offer, makes a difference for all parties involved. The cool thing about the list above…is that it really doesn’t matter what time of year it is… YOU can still be of service… be charitable with your time, skills, love, and friendship. I promise you that when your heart is in the right place… you are aligning yourself in the flow of abundance. Allow it to flow to you and through you, to create a cycle of giving and receiving.

Wishing YOU a Day filled with Service & Understanding.
Humbly Yours,
Marcia

I Believe In YOU!


Sometimes we get a little down and discouraged when we look at our lives’ and we barely recognize the person that we see in the mirror. Somewhere along our journey we gave away pieces of who we used to be; whether it is because we lost track of our dreams or stopped doing the things that we loved doing. Even on the noblest pathways, it is human nature to put others needs ahead of our own. Don’t get me wrong, serving others is a true value, however, not at the sacrifice of ourselves.

Now before you click to the next blog, please indulge me for a moment. I have said it hundreds and hundreds of times, the advice that the airline gives you before every flight is priceless. “Put the oxygen on yourself before you help those you are traveling with.” This is such simple wisdom that so easily gets over looked and placed on the bottom of our list…that is… if it even makes our personal list of importance to begin with. So if you are not sure what I mean, I will spell it out. If you don’t take care of your own needs, your own wellbeing and health… YOU will not be around to take care of the other people in your life that you care about.

Sometimes when truths come to us in its purest form, the human side of has to complicate it, in order to feel important. So, we try to intellectualize and pad the simplistic wisdom before we even try and attempt to apply it. If it seems to easy, it can’t be right; is the mind chatter that we have rolling around our head.

So, what would YOU do if you didn’t know YOU couldn’t? Or, what would YOU start doing again that YOU have given up either consciously or unconsciously? Take some time to reflect on the things that you once loved doing because they gave you so much pure joy. Even if you were not that polished at it. If at one time…YOU loved it or even if there is something that YOU would like to try, but have placed F.E.A.R. (False Evidence Appearing Real) in the way …I encourage YOU to DO it!

I know beyond knowing that YOU Can! YOU can step out of your own way and start growing the joy inside YOU once again. In my heart of hearts I know that you Can step into YOUr full potential. I believe in you like I believe in me. Set yourself free from the ties that bind you and step into the Greatness that YOU are! Believe in YOU …as YOU are worth it!


Wishing YOU a day filled with Green Lights & Learning!
Humbly Yours,
Marcia

The "family of Jacob", (Elohei Yaakov) is an inter-dimensional collective consciousness that resonates a central frequency of the united essence of All Source. Over the ages the family of "Jacob" have been known by many names; the higher central Sun, Tiferet, the personage of Divine as Father, the Egyptian All recognizing collective consciousness called "Ra", the Hindu Lord Vishnu - the cosmic consciousness of All Life, the Christian Trinity, the biblical archetype of the patriarch "Jacob" who coalesced All through frequencies of "merciful healing" and recognizing "truth". These are some incarnations of this family consciousness called the family of "Jacob", and there have been many more. Splinters of this collective consciousness are incarnated in almost every generation along the earthly tier, others aspects of this collective are ascended (angelic) intelligences that never spent time along the earthly tier, or have resonated their key resonance of truth in many other worlds and dimensions. They offer a "birds eye view" of true reality, and share a messages of the Higher Love & compassionate healing; revealing dignity for the individual, a deep compassion and reverence for the collective; the majestic "music" from behind the veil --- the coalescing of All That Is. Their sacred message carries a profound cadence that leads to the abstract coordinates for ascension into the fullness of inter-dimensional "wholeness". The "family of Jacob" explain how this game of duality consciousness is designed to help angels and imprisoned intelligences ascend to higher dimensions of intimacy with All Source by resonating All Source's intrinsic frequency of unconditional love and unity along the earthly tier.

BE A Leader


Leadership is leading by example, walking the walk and never asking anyone to do anything that you are not willing to do yourself. It is someone who guides and inspires others towards the accomplishment of a collective goal, mission, or vision. Inspire others to be creative, work hard to accomplish things instead of requiring them to get things done - is a much better solution.

Dwight Eisenhower said, “Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.”

Each one of us was sent to this earth to become Life Long Learners. From the time we were born we have a thirst to learn and the need to experience new things; however, too many of us go through life just mildewing our way to retirement. The result leaves us unsatisfied, unchallenged and often lifeless.

It is powerful to realize that attention goes, energy flows! When we drink from the fountain of knowledge we are continually investing in ourselves by fuelling our life tank of edification. I am not saying to drop everything and go back to school, (unless you want to) I am saying, read a book, listen to an audio book, listen to your parents and grandparents, and learn something new. Step away from the computer and start asking questions…as long as you are truly ready to “Listen and HEAR” the answer. Spend some time learning how other people experienced life and the lessons they learnt. Take a look at how it was done in the past and then create your own outcome. Leaders stand out in a crowd because of their ability to influence others through vision, integrity, authenticity and self confidence. They possess humility, focus, people skills, and effective communication skills.

Great Leaders are Mentors that build a team of the right people and put them into a position that highlights that individuals’ straight while recognizing and praising the team member’s accomplishments. Mentors spend time in all areas of the company learning from the front line as well as being able to gain perspective of the big picture of the corporate setting. They share information- knowledge is power, arm your staff with all of the tools they need to reach their goals. Long gone are the days of Management by dictatorship…"if you don't like it, then we can find ten other people to do your job!" We now live in a time where employers must create a culture that inspires greatness in employees [a time that all staff yearn to make a difference and feel they are important to the company they work for.] Managers must listen more then ever to the needs and desires of their staff. The more ideas that are shared the more solutions that are created. Also, very importantly, Leaders have Mentors to whom they turn for opinions and ideas.

Finally, the old saying of, “God gave you two ears and only one mouth for a reason,” is so true because we should be listening twice as much as we speak. Listening is a much undeveloped talent that we all continually need to work on. Far too often we enter into a conversation only waiting for the other person to finish speaking just so that we can talk. We stand there looking at them intently rehearsing what our reply is going to be instead of really hearing what the other person is saying. In order to truly become good at anything we must practice, Listening like all talents must be utilized continually …strive to fully develop your talent of Listening. Good leaders must be willing to handle opinions contrary to their own and absorb as much as they can. Learn all that you can about your team members and strive to build strong relationships. Never take them for granted… create an ownership mentality. When staff are treated like equals, they will respond in the same way, they will strive for greatness in all they do. When you take care of your employees, they will in turn take care of your customers…who are they reason why you are in business in the first place. Never forget that and you have the recipe for success.

The three key ingredients that make up a great leader:

Lead by Example
Be a Life Long Learner
Listen twice as much as you speak.


Be a Leader in your own Life!
Humbly Yours,
Marcia

From ME to WE!


The other day while reflecting about the friend limit that I have reached on facebook and how I can no longer add any more friends, I asked a friend how she created such an amazing twitter following, she said that she had a handful of fantastic re-tweeters and great friends…and the rest was just numbers.

She then asked how I do everything that I have created. My reach may not be as deep … but it is extremely wide. With 8 twitter accounts, (linked to some of my facebook pages) 22 groups that I am administrator of (the majority I have created) radio shows, applications, websites , magazines I write for and more. How do I do it? …well…I just do. ..because nobody told me I couldn’t!

My access to outstanding people spans the globe. With the touch of a button, I can share, learn and grow with thousands and thousands… and thousands. It may look like I do everything, however, from a different perspective, I have a huge network of amazing people working together..sharing with each other. They are OUR groups, pages, sites, etc…

For example: I have not personally sent 800,000 applications (that I built) around the world… it was YOU. I simply provided the gift of my own talent.
My ability to embrace many, in multiple areas of interest has facilitated all types of possibilities. I AM a network connector…bridging the gap between business, investing, leadership, natural laws, personal development, charity and spirituality. Part of my purpose is to highlight the potential of working together as WE…rather than working alone as ME.

Globally we are entering a new era of joint ventures and elevating others by offering a hand up rather than a hand out! Transforming the patterned mindsets of climbing my own way to the top, to that of one where we step into abundance together. Working collectively for the greater good of the entire planet is the direction our human evolution is taking us on in this journey of learning.

From the state of mind of “WE”, we are able to transcend the F.E.A.R of limiting beliefs and step into the new earth where people work jointly rather than against. WE allow the opportunity to see things through eyes of others and ask, how can we help?…Rather than telling people what they need! WE will work Together..as ONE!


Humbly Yours,
Marcia

Self Healing...How to:


I have done alot of different things to be able to learn and grow... and let go. However one of the very most important things I did, was to get honest with myself. Pure loving honesty that came without my own judgement. Writing that book really did help me. Self work, will help your children's Parent become a much more loving, caring and understanding person. It helps your patience level and can be the first step in becoming the person that YOU want to be.

Since WE teach people how to treat us.... it really does start with ourselves. If we don't love who were are... how can we expect anyone else to?

Make a list.... step outside who you are right now, make a list about everything in your life that you are packing around (emotionally ) that is not serving you in becoming the person that YOU want to be... (not the definition of who YOU think someone else wants you to be.) Make the list, JUDGEMENTFREE, include even the things that don't seem all that big... if it comes to mind... write it down.

I am not going to kid you... this is something that takes time. It has taken a lifetime to compile all of the hurts & scares that you have in your life.... but it won't take a lifetime to heal them.... just time.

Next take the list and break it down. In a scribbler, define what that item meant to you at the time...and what you have now made it mean in your life.... what you have learnt from it and if it is a repeated pattern in your life.

Take the time to do that with everything on your list. Don't worry about printing, spelling or anything... this book is for YOU, and judgement doesn't matter.. Judgement is not allowed here.

Even though this seems like a mountain of work... I promise you... YOU are Worth it! You are worth the time it will take to heal... your family is worth it... and everyone that YOU are in contact with... is worth it... YOU are doing this for YOU.. but you are also doing this... to heal the generations past and future... YOU are WORTH IT!

As you write... do it from a mindset of strength.... power... and victim free! You are doing this, to allow yourself the opportunity to live your NOW by design...and not by default. Know that YOU are not alone, you are safe... and YOU have the tools inside of YOU to Allow your healing.

So grab... your pen, paper, kleenex and prepare for peace of mind...
Step 1 Awareness..without Judgement ..and pure Honesty...with yourself
Step 2 Understanding...and SELF Forgiveness
Step 3 Releasing the Baggage
Step 4 Defining who YOU want to BE
Step 5 Taking Action .... (the energy that you place here is very important) I have several radio show about this to listen to if you need assistance.

My dear friend. Know that YOU are not alone. Everything up to this moment, has been perfect in the big picture... for your own learning. YOU have the power to remove..your own judgement, guilt, and negativity from the vocabulary of your own mind chatter. Within YOU is the LOVE that you need in order to step through the place where you are now... to the place that YOU want to BE.

Take the drivers seat of your life...release the resistance and start enjoying the ride that is your own human experience! You are a divine being.... being human... so transform your life from a 'human doing....' to a human BEing...who, what and where YOU want to be...instead of who YOU think YOU should be because of a pattern that YOU created in your life.

YOU can do it... I believe in YOU... you are worth it!

This note is in responce to the note that I posted on my blog called... From Coal to Diamonds http://www.eaupening.blogspot.com

Shine brightly my friends.. you can serve no one by keeping yourself small.
Humbly Yours,
Marcia

From Coal to Diamonds



Today I had to take some supplies to my husband; he was working at one of the local mines that is the furthest from our house. Even though it was not an emergency I volunteered to drive up rather than sending them up on the transport truck. In his mind he thinks that I am doing him a favor..but in mine…the drive is a favor to me. Driving for me is like meditation. It allows me the opportunity to think about all of the thoughts that are rolling around in my head.

This particular drive allows me to appreciate the majestic beauty that is the Canadian Rocky Mountains since the mine is at the end of the road 5400 feet above sea level. Without fail every time that I have traveled this road, I have been blessed with the opportunity to enjoy the local wildlife. I have seen bears, moose, deer, elk and big horn sheep… today I had 2 bald eagles follow me up the highway for miles until they got distracted with showing off for me by showing off for each other.

Since it is a coal mine in a series of coal mines, there are coal seems that run all over the valleys. There are places along the journey that years ago were struck by lightning, which caused fires to ignite underground and continued to burn for years and years. As I drove past one of these locations I could not help but think of the underground fires that I had burned in me for years and years. Like the coal fire, most of the damage was never visible on the surface. Once and awhile, some outside smoke could be seen, but for the most part I kept the burning inferno invisible to people outside my close circle of friends.

For far too long I let the fires of fear, denial, self loathing and unworthiness burn in me. They showed up in my life as outward manifestations of failed relationships, mistrust, betrayal and self sabotage. I would stop myself from reaching my goals because I felt that I was fake and undeserving. Like the coal fires burning in the mountains, I had a fuel source that would last for generations. The sad part was, I was so quick to judge other people and offer solutions to “FIX” there situations, it wasn’t until I got sick of hearing a friend’s husband whine and complain about being the way he was because his father was an alcoholic, that I opened the door for my own self healing.

I was determined to let him know that people in the world had been through much more traumatic circumstances and could show up as responsible, reliable adults and stop blaming their childhoods for making them the way they were. So, I started to write a book about every nasty, painful nitty-gritty detail of my life. It included everything from the first time that I had sex ,to the night that I had a gun held to my head all night long. I wrote about being rapped while my little kids were just up the hallway. This book detailed my childhood traumas to having to fight 2 years to get a divorce. I created a beautifully scrapbooked example of everything from my life…but with it, I included the lessons that I learnt with each event. After 1 week of writing every night after my children were tucked in bed until almost sunrise I was finished. I had written “my Story” that I had been packing around for way to many years. I gave the book to my friend for her and her husband to read… and I don’t know if, he got my point about worse things have happened to people.. and they turned out ok; but ..the experience of purging the baggage that I had carried with me for an entire life was healing for me and everyone around me.

The book of my experiences allowed me to walk though everything in my life from a different perspective and for the first time… I forgave myself for directing my life the way that I had done. The burning coal inside of me, was distinguished and prevented from turning into an out of control forest fire. The coal in me had turned to diamonds …shiny examples of where I once was and how strong I have become; even though some of my diamonds are still being polished…I am not scared for people to see them. Since the ‘book’ I have been on a journey of self discover, understanding, humility and love. I have become a person that is proud to look in the mirror and in the eyes of others.

Humbly Yours,
Marcia

What I See In YOU.

I was inspired to get out of bed early this morning to remind YOU how wonderful you truly are! As I lay their thinking about how I can help you see what I see in YOU, I knew that I needed to get up and start sharing. Whenever there is a time when you lose faith in how amazing you are, you can borrow some of my faith in you. Look at you through my eyes and see the divine spirit that I see. Look past the cloths and the hair style… gaze deeply into the depths of your soul and uncover the divinity that you truly are.

Set aside the “story” of you, to revile the knowledge and power that is truly you. Let go of the ego’s illusion of you to discover the brilliance and love that is your true essence. You are a divine Being having a human experience. YOU are Divine. You are Love. Joy is your birthright. YOU are here to discover the grace, humility and kindness that you are meant to share with the world. Your mission on earth is to do good… share your gifts with the world and shine your light brightly. You can help no one by keeping yourself small.

See yourself in my eyes, borrow my faith in you if you need it… because I do believe in you! I know that you can accomplish anything that you set your mind to. You can go on! You can make it. This time here on earth is but a moment in eternity. We are here to learn and grow together. If you need a shoulder, know that you can always use mine…but it is up to you, to pick yourself up… and keep going. I believe in YOU. YOU have the power in you to BE, DO and Have anything that you truly believe in. Your life is powered by YOU… fuel yourself, by sharing and creating. The light in me honors the light in you…the more that you shine the more you inspire me to do the same. A candle’s light looses nothing by lighting other candles… but it gains the support and light of others in the process.

Shine brightly today as you set out on your journey. Know that I believe in YOU! I am proud of who YOU are Being in the world! I love YOU!
Humbly Yours,
Marcia

Facebook 101..The New Face of Facebook!

Facebook 101 The New Face of Facebook!
During a phone conversation with a friend of mine that I have not spoken to for a long time, he lovingly said that I was the worst “Spammer” on his friend list. I was in shock thinking.. I have not sent out messages to my groups for a long time..and really keep ‘invites’ to a minimum. Then I realized what he was speaking about..and had to laugh!

He was referring to the Facebook news feed. Since facebook automatically gathers information from wall posts that friends make, he thought it was me sending messages to him! Since he is a computer ‘geek’ and he never knew what was happening, I could not help but wonder how many other people in my facebook family were of the same thinking… so I am here to offer a little help!
My perspective of facebook is through the eyes of someone who has about 5000 friends.. so in the regular news feed, I hardly see the same person twice in one day. Also, I have so many people “tagging” me in notes, I just don’t have time to read them all.(sorry)

So, if you don’t know what you don’t know, you can’t do anything to fix (help, change) your facebook experience! If you are interested, I am going to put together some training videos to help visually show you what I am about to explain…let me know if that will help you!

Let’s start with the News Feed:
Facebook enables you to see what’s happening with your friends through news feeds.
The News feed is found on your “Home” wall! It is a list of your friends, pages & now group wall postings. YOU can adjust who you see in your feeds… There are a couple of options
News Feed and Live Feed (let’s you view the feed the moment people post.) News feed gathers the most interesting things your friends are posting..(based on ‘Likes’) and the live feed gives a real time update of all feeds.
You can adjust the content that appears on your home page by adjusting the settings on the left hand side of your screen. Adjusting your setting helps you change the face of your facebook! It will help you adjust your perspective to a different view.

Tagging: When someone Tags you in a note or a picture it doesn’t always mean that YOU are in the story or the picture... people do that as a way of quickly sharing the content with YOU. It means that “this” is something that I think you would be interested in either seeing or reading.

@ replies... now you can tag your friends by adding their name to a status update or send them a quick shout out to thank them for posting something that you are going to share! Give it a try, it is a great new feature. Write @Marcia Johnson (or anyone) to see what I mean... then not only will the link show up on your wall... but it will show up on theirs as well.

Lists: In order to quickly see what your personal friends or family are up to...create a List. On your friends page (link is on the top of your screen) You have the option to create lists... name them whatever you want, that way not only can you quickly invite people to join a group or page, but you also now have the option of viewing that group news feed on your home page.... the option is on the left hand side of home page once groups are created.

Groups vs Pages: I am a fan of both, now that FB has changed groups to resemble pages... so far the only difference that I can see is the special features and statistics that pages offer. With these new changes, groups that have over 5000 members can still be in contact with their members as well as have their content appear in member newsfeeds.

Like: When you click on the little Like button under a post... it helps promote the post onto more and more newsfeeds, so if you really do like a post, please click like to show your support!

Email Updates: I highly suggest adjusting these, or you will become flooded with FB stuff! You can the types of information that you receive in your email inbox by clicking on the settings feature (top right of FB screen) There you will find three main options.. Account Settings, Privacy Settings, and Application Settings. From there you have there a merit of options. Do take a look, turn off the ones that you find annoying, so that you facebook experience turns out to be a pleasant one!

I want YOU to know that I am honored to correspond with YOU, and I am very grateful for Facebook because I have been able to connect with people from all over the globe, which has allowed me to adjust my perspective for the better. Thank YOU for being my inspiration!

Realizing OUR Mentors Are Human…

My personal mentors and I are separated by the pedestal that I place them on. I clearly remember the day when I realized that my father was ‘Human.’ It was the day that he told me that my mother and he were getting a divorce. I was 13 the day that I held my father in my arms while he told me through his tears that his marriage was over. Even as a child, I was the one that he could lean on. It was such a shock to me, not that they were concluding their time together; but that I was no longer the acorn and my father the mighty oak tree that I had made him out to be in my mind. Although he was ahead of me on life experience… he was the same as me…he was a Divine Being having a Human experience.

I have had the opportunity to have met many of my mentors. Looking up to people who have either accomplished what I would like to, or who have pioneered the way to make my life’s purpose much easier have allowed me to realize that I CAN achieve anything that I set my mind to. Even though these people have accomplished great things, they are still Humans who sometimes make mistakes..and at times..don’t even believe in themselves.

Several years ago, I had built a friendship with a Transformational life coach who I greatly admired. I spent many hours on the phone with her … sharing, learning and growing. I even traveled all the way across the country to stay at her home and attend some of her courses. She was fantastic…until, I got in business with her. I quickly realized that she was not who she said she was..nor did she practice what she preached. “When it was all said and done, there was a lot more said than done”… and I was disappointed to learn that she did not live up to her own definition of Integrity…. “ALWAYS doing what YOU say YOU are going to do…when YOU say YOU are going to do it!”

Even though this was a pricey relationship, it allowed me the opportunity to look within to examine what/who I was Being during our friendship. In my mind, I had elevated her to a higher standard than I had had for myself..because I placed her on a pedestal. Reality in it all was…she was HUMAN…and made mistakes. My learning came when I realized that I had changed my own standards..because I had made her better than me, in my own mind. So I blindly let her do things that I would not have normally allowed.

Another woman that I have looked up to because of her amazing ability to market herself and her talents was Silvia Brown. WOW, she is extremely talented in putting out new products at an unbelievable rate. Even if you are not ‘into’ her type of product, you have to applaud her ability to produce. I met Silvia and spoke with her … and came away disappointed. (It could have been an off day for her but..) I was disappointed…because once again, I had made her out to be MORE than ME. That day, she was a very negative, unhappy and overworked woman. She looked so very tired…and it had me question..was all her overworking, really worth it?


(Me & Silvia Brown)

A couple of years ago, while attending the Casey Summit (the pinnacle of all Investing shows) I had the pleasure of having drinks with Doug Casey (Guru of Investing) and a handful of his friends. Walking to the table, I had such butterflies in my stomach but after shaking his hand and sitting down I felt equal. Even being the only woman at the table of an “Old Boys Club,” I belonged. These men reflected about the day’s events and laughed and joked about the business of networking in the Stock Market world. I shocked myself at the level of conversation I held when Simon Black (Doug’s Beyond Borders Analyst) introduced me to the table beside us. The Boston Red Socks team…. No kidding! We were all staying in the same hotel because it was the world series. Luckily I was prepared with pocketful of business cards..because Simon passed my card out to the entire team. (I worked for a Gold & Silver Exploration company at the time.)

In January I had dinner with Bob Proctor (Law of Attraction Guru) and the entire cast of the Beyond the Secret movie. Since seeing the movie the Secret, I have been in awe of Bob. He is a fountain of inspiration and a wonderful source of wisdom…but he is Human! I overheard him ask the director about creating the movie into a business and how they would do that… I laughed inside when the director said, “Bob, we will Attract it to us!”

(cast of Beyond the Secret & Liza Gibbons)

I have met so many un-believable humans who are accomplishing outstanding things… things at are beyond all reason…. but they are doing it…creation Solutions..and living in Possibility!

Even though some of my mentors have changed over time, I have learned from them more than I can express in just one blog. Through the wisdom of life’s lessons, experiences and network of supporters, I am creating a new system of business and a world that shines a light on corporations that do business with INTEGRITY, TRANSPARENCY and HONESTY. I invite you to join in the creation by going to http://www.stockharmony.com With YOUr support and suggestions are most needed to create that economy that we want to see in the world. Stock Harmony!

Humbly Yours,

Marcia
