Defining Cooperative Leadership

Ophelia infographic d3

In a world filled with upheaval and less than effective leadership, no matter the country, government, corporation, etc., it is necessary to look for and participate in new or at least progressive, inclusive and grounded processes that lead to win-win outcomes for all involved, no matter how small or large the endevour.

It is so necessary for current leadership, (government, business, community, group, private and public) to re-evaluate how they think, act, determine outcomes, fund projects and formulate the ultimate manifested outcomes of the visions or goals desired.

No one person is an ultimate authority on the perfect how to accomplish such a monumental task. Yet, there are many out in the great world, myself included, who have proven ways, workable ideas and a huge willingness to open new doors to be part of the collective solution.

Some of the keys;

Responsibility and the ability to respond. No blame and no victims. Choices in actions determine outcomes every time!

Today I offer a series of presentations recently done on the process called “Defining Cooperative Leadership”.  This process was revealed, discovered and proven in real time, real life and work circumstances over a period of four years and then years of refining through life experiences. All of this was discovered within the  federally-funded, not-for-profit, social services world – not a place I expected to find these answers!

Much of the information found within these presentations is already used, just not in a conscious and empowering way. Some of the ideas and perspectives shared would not be generally associated with leadership presentations or even skills, yet I have found them to be valid and important in defining the unfolding process.

For those who take time to watch and listen to each one, I hope you gain understanding and share with me your ideas and thoughts.

It appears the long wait is over. It is hard to believe my last real posting was two months ago…..it has been a time of much shifting, change, challenge, greatness love and loss. And I am not alone. Virtually everyone I know or come in contact with is going through this “void” yet in the long run (as blurred as all may appear) it is and will be a good thing.

Last week a dear friend loaned me a book and strongly suggested I take heed of the first chapter. This book was originally printed in 1961 and the copy I had was the seventh printing – 2002 “The Law and the Promise” by Neville. I have read the first chapter twice and completed the whole book once. I obviously needed a good reminder in creating new life paths!

If you experienced childhood and growing up like most of us, using and believing in our imagination was totally frowned upon, discouraged or downright outlawed. A child’s “make-believe” world was just that and could not possibly become anything productive, secure – financially or socially, acceptable or logical. The creative, make-believe world was one for the non-educated, losers, trouble-makers and eccentrics. And thus most of the education systems in the world “taught it (imagination) out of the child’s mind.”  

The entire message within Neville’s book is about how to use, cultivate and hone our Imagination to create the world we want or desire around us. One challenge I had in reading it was the language Neville used, the language “appropriate” for the 1960s. His constant use of the word “Man” when referring to both men, women (seldom even mentioned) and humanity. Even though I completely understood what he meant a wave of discomfort came over me and the little inner voice started saying, sometimes angrily “what about women!” “what about the world! “do only men count!” This showed me how deep some social conditioning can still reach.

Yet, of course back in the 60’s, which was not so long ago, this was the reality in most parts of the world, even the civilized world. Women have been “allowed to vote” in many parts of the world since the late 1800s yet the image of “a woman’s place is in the home, only to serve husband and raising of children” was strongly portrayed in many television programs of the 50s, 60s and even into the 70s.

With the cultural and social movements throughout the 80s and 90s and into this new millennium the imaging of women in the world of business, creative arts, science, medicine, law and child-rearing has changed yet not everywhere…..thus there is more “imagining to do here!”

Neville states the key and secret to changing your reality is Self-abandonment! “You must abandon yourself mentally to your WISH FULFILLED in your love of that state, and in doing so, LIVE IN THE NEW STATE and no more in the old state. You can’t commit yourself to what you do not love, so the secret of self-commission is FAITH – plus LOVE.” In FEELING the wish fulfilled it must become a reality because imaging creates reality.

Another key that Neville mentioned of importance was to “re-imagine the past or past outcomes to recurring situations with an outcome that is of a higher, better or the best desired, to also feel and live with that scenario until it is totally real within as this will be the foundation for the new future outcome of the recurring situation. In other words “re-imagining the past can/will change the future.”

A possible example of this could be having a bad or challenging parent relationship which appears to have some genetic or heritage patterns. You re-imagine the best or most desired, even fairytale relationship, feel and live what it was/could have been, feel love for yourself and others. This may take some time, patience, forgiveness and work. Now when the similar relationship is in your life (say father/son or mother/daughter) be observant of subtle or not so subtle changes in interactions or emotions. Perhaps the old buttons are not being pushed quite so much or at all or you are not attracting people who create the similar stresses. It is at least worth a try!

This has taken me back into review of my life and most specifically all I have created and done in the past 13 years (since 2000) and how I would like to reinvent, enhance and recreate myself in the wonderful new paradigm we are in now. In reviewing I found that indeed ” my creative imagination, feeling and living in it” before any manifestation happened was and still is the flow. Most especially when I followed my heart and intuition. This also played/plays out when imagining from fear, loss and lack that were separate from my great learning journey of how the unseen world of dimensions manifest.

There are many examples of people with amazing imaginations revealed through all forms of The Arts as well as every other fields of business, health, science, technology and so forth. Our world is being taken to new galactic heights. There are and have always been the pioneers who open doors of possibilities yet to make real the Imagined it takes many, many, many more to use their gifts of imagining to participate in the creatitive manifestation for the new Reality.

Now it is time for a new imagining to be in synchronicity with the new paradigm of unity, collaboration and cooperation in melding and honoring the male and female, feminine and masculine and the balancing of opposites within and around each one of us.

The creative visions of imagination are for everyone to access, to live from and be in love with. Imagining the highest Reality desired for it to be Created.

It is Nice to be Recognized  – Do you know how you touch other people’s lives? Most of the time we have no idea. Yet when we are gifted with a view into how most often we are surprised.

It is always nice to be recognized for who we are, what we do and how we touch others. I would like to share some of my friends with you. For more information on me, my consultations, creations and products and past work visit www.earthspiritjourneys.com

On Friday night I danced Flamenco (my style) accompanied by Michael Olsen, a wonderful flamenco guitarist.  I was fulfilling a vision to publicly dance again and now am looking forward to do it again if the opportunity arises.

Women’s Mystic Journeys to Becoming.

Here is video Part 3 in a new series of stories being produced by Andree Morgana of The Hawahwatha Institute.

The full interview can been seen in Parts at Earth Spirit Journeys You Tube Channel.    Part 1

The Journey of Becoming is not just about women and cannot happen with only women interacting. Men are doing the journey and are integral to the balance of showing the progress of evolving consciousness. We need each other to help along the way and most especially to show us how far we have come or not in our own journey. We are the measuring sticks for each other, such an important role to play.

So much is happening these days and much of it completely unexpected!

The continuing  video series on Spiritual Baggage. Here are segments 2 and 3 in the series. Hope you enjoy the information……many have found it enlightening and helpful in their lives. (sometimes Youtube scares me!)

Another article and perspective I don’t necessarily agree with, you decide for yourself as usual!     The Spirit Ends When The Brain Dies by 

There are also new videos (see sidebar) I created for Ted Dawson, Native American Herbalist at Mountain Wintu Herbs. These are an interesting educational journey. A couple more segments will be following shortly.

Could it be Karma!

Who would have ever guessed that the symbol of financial world dominance (Wall Street and the Twin Towers) and the role of morphing the view of freedom to a view of bondage by terror for 9 years (a complete numerical cycle) has now become the very vantage point of a new cycle (10 = 1 …year 1 of a new cycle) ……..the people standing in non-violent formation demanding the Elite powers of finance, power, domination and manipulation be accountable, stop, return, surrender and accept “it is not, cannot and will not be…..business as per THEIR usual.”

Occupy Wall Street, New York and Beyond     The People are speaking!   Join the voices from around the world!

Remembering back to the very early beginning of the Internet,which I believe was a large “covert” project established between the government, military and specific educational institutions to disseminate, formulate, process, cover-up and instigate information and actions behind the scenes without being seen…….and NOW over the past number of years it  is this very same instrument that is, has been and will continue to”expose them and their deeds” to the people of the world.

Could this be what one calls….”A Massive Spiritual Set-Up!”

Another Visionary has left us!

Yesterday, the sad and unexpected news of the passing of Steve Jobs, visionary and creator of Apple. He established Apple in 1976 yet it appears really pivotal years were around 1986-1993. These were also pivotal years for two other visionaries that pass unexpectedly from this earthly presence this year.

In 1986-7, Jose Aguelles gave birth to the meaning of the ancient prophesies of the Maya and their calendar, heralded by the Harmonic Convergence in August, 1987. This very information is what has been driving the world towards the dates of October 28, 2011 and December 21,2012……and the complete unknown of what “will really happen!”

In 1987 Ra Uru Hu was “downloaded” with amazing information that became the formal process called Human Design. For anyone familiar with HD, it is an incredible source of revelation and has often been called, which I completely agreed with,  “is the new psychology for the 21st century and millennium.

There maybe other inspiring visionaries that could be included here also.

The incredible similarity here is that “each man was gifted with galactic knowledge which I see to reside outside the brain (a processing muscle). Through their unique soul/mind/consciousness brain processing, the information in each case was formulated into usable, binary, numerically based, traceable through time lines and weaving time, space, information through  (1) inanimate object = computer;     (2)galactic and cosmic history = Mayan Calendar;    (3)Human Design Grid = the unique physcial, mental, emotional, spiritual and soul blueprint of each person.

Their work was done and the rest of us are left to use, expand and create the next level of amazing information…..just as the unique information these men (and others) were gifted with did not exist before it was brought down to earth level….the NEW information we are waiting for will be gifted through the right person/people at the right times and places, in the right ways and for correct use.

Perhaps some of it is here already but I very much doubt the critical and essential threads have been revealed……humanity and power have not proven enough integrity and responsibility to be trust thus far!  In a surprise conversation with someone (a scientist) from the past this week….the dialogue turned to “remote viewing” and he told that the military have incredibly well trained viewers that are able to see future events…..yet have not been able to “see correctly” in and around 2012 dates…….how interesting is that!

We all have to live with patience (tough, I know), in light consciousness, pure heart and compassion, acceptance and tolerance for difference, support and presence…..for maybe, one day, it could be anyone of us that is chosen to be the deliverer of the new cosmic, galactic, earthly manifesting information to change the way the everyday world lives!

In the past 10 days I have spent a lot of time consumed with audio and video editing, for myself and others,  hence the slow pace of any new postings.

We Are Still Here!

Governments, Countries and Populations carry Spiritual Baggage from history and actions of the past. Hence, the amazing times we are living in and the experiences through prophesy and myth.

( There is no skylight or window in the roof of this chapel. Just a powerful presence of Light!)

You are now well aware, Elenin has not annihilated us and we are still moving towards the prophetic dates of October 28th, November 11 ,2011 and December 21, 2012. There has also been incredibly good news that some of the “highly secretive, insanely expensive and dark politically connected huge underground bunker cities in VA, CO and a couple of other locations “were taken out by unknown forces from unknown galactic light forces.” with occupants being “beamed away!” (David Wilcock is a most credible and interesting source of information and revelations. This is similar information from another perspective.   www.mahalasastrology.com

What is all of this meaning in our lives today and in the near future?

The new video (below) in the series Storing the Past…Clearing the Future ( see last two posting for the audio pieces) is about Spiritual Baggage and in quite expanded ways, is relative to what is happening both on the Earth and in the Galactic Realms. Man and Divine Source/God are vying for the Spiritual Health or Destruction of a controlled and mislead Humanity!

The information I share in the video takes on several different views and I also share there are many other ways to look at this topic. During these last few weeks scenarios in my life have been playing out to show where I stand right now. What people and the things I do bring and create “wonderful spiritual vibrancy”, expressed as a woman feeling and being beautiful, inside and out. Remembering what it feels like to be “alive to life”! There have also been scenarios showing where I am out of sync and not happy with how I and others have addressed situations….thus opening doors “for that same vibrant spirit to be crush, demoralized and hurt…..revealing that a change in perspectives, actions, location and/or vision are necessary to bring “spiritual vibrancy back to that part of life.

This delicate balance is part of the flow, as the tidal flow. Everything cannot always be up and stay there! And conversely, wallowing in the abyss does not also last forever, unless one chooses so!

Daily life can put you in a place of spiritual death……as a phase is coming to an end, a job, relationship or even a spiritual teaching that looses the newness and wondered when “your internal spirit knowing” says it is time to grow the challenge at the next level. Faith and trust pushed and challenged!

I have known a “spiritual baggage experience” has been awakened within, just by the way I feel and my tolerance and mind focus. Then when Other’s witness “shapeshifting” from beautiful vibrant younger woman filled with awareness and mystery to a sad-eyed crone of wisdom I know it is time to make changes, from within  to the outer world……to bring vibrancy to everyone I meet and interact with, a conduit of Love and Patience in other words!

This piece is filled with good information to use in everyday life. I will upload the second part on Stories from Spirit as soon as it is complete!

I hope you enjoy the offering!   Peace and Blessings within this New World!

(Once again YouTube does its flattering best!)

A short entry today announcing the latest video of the Labyrinth’s journey. I have met many wonderful people and have been honored to shared in each personal experience.

During these experiences I have discovered in subtle ways the unseen power of labyrinths. As an “energetic light substation” the more people walking it in a specific location amplifies the energy of the intentions of prayers and blessings: “to surrender all that is not in my highest good” (walking in) and “to claim and integrate the wholeness of the new potential within and without” (walking out).

On Saturday, September 17th I will have the Labyrinth at the Rejuvenation Festival in Mendocino, CA.

The next audio in the series “Storing the Past….Clearing the Future” will be on Spiritual Baggage. Hopefully ready for next week!

Until then………..Blessings!

(once again YouTube has done something strange with the first image, working on fixing it!)
