Time waits for no-one. . .

. . .and why should it.

 

I spent this last weekend surrounded by mountains, light and energy, kindred energy of lives past and lives to come, Angels and Spirit guides filled the space and meditation came easy in the safety of such wonderful souls. I found my focus and my balance once again, I strengthened my Aura and my Energy, I walked away knowing I am happy to BE.

 

It also gave me a chance to reflect and chat about my theories and my belief, or it may be more suitable to call it “sharing my opinion” with others, which-ever way you go with it is safe to say I had a wonderful time both sharing and listening in a phone free environment, it was quite refreshing. One of the topics that came up was time, how we were in the back half of October already, where did Summer go, in fact, where did the last few years go.  Well, it is my theory that as we get older we stop waiting for things to happen, it almost seems like when we hit the magic number of 50, things speed up dramatically. We no longer wait for dates, or occasions, we don’t wait for results or deadlines, we just seem to be happy being who we are and where we are in time, and time passes quicker.

 

Having said this, I found myself incapable of waiting for funding, although I am still seeking it, I will manifest what I need to get my little books out for December, one way or another, the Universe told me I should, so I will. This means I will self-publish once again, if an agent should happen by at the right time I will entertain the idea of going traditional, but I believe because one has not yet crossed my path (and believe me I have searched) that my little books are meant to stay organic and real, and just a heads up, you are going to love Series Two, Rachel has been incredible at polishing my word hugs, and I know Fiona is going to shine as well with design, I made a promise I wouldn’t let my readers down with this series and I haven’t, each Volume still brings a smile to my heart, and I wrote them.

Stay tuned…

 

As for my little Nerium Business, well, it would seem as though my energy and honesty, my belief in something and my willingness to share it is changing lives. I continue to build my Filipino Audience, Forty Thousand strong so far and climbing, does the Universe have something in store for us, you bet it does and I’m excited. Please keep sending your friends and family to me, Nerium is not open as yet in the islands but in the US, Japan, soon in Hong Kong and Columbia, Australia and Canada, anywhere you have family we can change their lives and they in turn can change yours, at this rate I won’t need funding for my little books, my Nerium Business will pay for my printing, it seems my “Why” is nearing fruition.

 

Speaking of Australia, they just opened on the 20th and already they are off the charts, the door is open my friends, you can choose to walk through yourself or hold it open for someone else… either way lives are going to change.

 

Believe in you, and others will too

Believe in your strength and what you can do.

Contact us, we WILL show you a new reason to smile.

There are two places to get recognition. . .

. . .from the mirror and from your peers.

 

“Writers write” said Carrie Mumford during a conversation we were having at a local coffee shop, and those two words have been forefront in my thoughts ever since. I have never given myself the recognition I deserved for being a writer, until recently. I spent all day Sunday, writing, finishing the chapter pages for Volume X of Series Two of BawB’s Raven Feathers. This is something I have been taking for granted for the last five years, the fact that I can sit down every morning and put together a rhyming inspirational quote of my own, never repeating one that I’ve already written, avoiding gender, race, religion and politics, just putting on a smile and creating a word hug that I can share with the world, and then having to come up with a full page, speaking on a one word topic, in the third person, again without being specific while sharing my opinion and not judging, and doing it while a tear rolls down my cheek because it’s the last chapter of the last book I will write in this series titled “Happiness”, yes, yes I am a writer, and I write.

 

An excerpt from that chapter:

“It is in the dawn or the dusk, it is in the stars or the clouds that dance in the sky, it is in the hand we hold or in the moments alone, it is in our hearts and our souls. Happiness is a breath, or a kiss, a hug from a friend, it is in a memory or a moment when a new smile is shared. Happiness is colors and cookies, rain and rivers, it’s a feeling we get when a touch makes us quiver… Happiness is a way of thinking.”

 

When I am not writing I am fortunate to have found a way to continue to share happiness. I was led by the Universe to the desk of a wonderful kind soul, she introduced me to Nerium, and to the people that she worked with in her business, who in turn welcomed me and shared their energy and their smiles. I chose to pursue this adventure, and went about it with both eyes open, I needed to learn about it, use it, feel it and then believe in it. Six months have passed and I believe, I look and feel fantastic, I have met and shared with some wonderful people, who are carrying the smiles forward and I have been recognized for my achievements, not just by my peers but by the company, which to me, means the world.

 

I have also recognized that the founder of the company Jeff Olsen, is also a writer and an Author, he wrote a book called the Slight Edge, I have read this book three times and each time I do I smile. He writes of a way of thinking that will lead people to the happiness and success they desire, is it a coincidence that I write about inspiring people to find their inner smile which in turn will lead them to happiness. I want to meet Jeff Olsen one day and shake his hand, because I feel his energy by reading his words, yes, writers write, and then they share what they write with the world, for some the best recognition they will receive are the smiles they see on the faces of those that read what they have written.

 

Thank you to all the people that now share their smiles with me, I appreciate the recognition.

Seeing is a part of believing. . .

. . . and believing can help you to see.

I never would have believed had I not have seen with my own eyes the support from somewhere I have never been. Thousands of likes with each new post from so many wonderful people, most of which are in the Philippines, and most of which make my smile even bigger.

 

With each new post I move forward, it gives me a chance to share with the world where I am in my adventure, and as a writer, I need to believe in what I write, I need to know someone, somewhere will read it and smile, so believe me, when I see so much support from so many people I find new light and new hope for not just myself, but for other aspiring authors and writers. This has to be more than a dream, you need to take that step to make it a reality, commit to yourself, “see” yourself succeed at whatever it is you are doing, share your progress, your adventure with the world and know that out there somewhere there are others just like you, waiting for that little spark of inspiration.

 

As I write this, the effects of a recent visit with my Editor Rachel Small, has filled me with new found excitement and enthusiasm, her energy and her passion for what she does, along with her ability to polish my word hugs and make them just that much warmer, has given me that little bit of extra inspiration. I have increased my drive now to find a sponsor or an investor to help with my task of printing and releasing Series Two of BawB’s Raven Feathers to the world.

 

Now, I have mentioned in many of my posts that if you believe in the Universe, the universe listens, and the Universe will help guide you on your path. Well, the Universe has shown me Nerium, and I made the choice to follow this path, one way or another I will get my little books published, and if I can do it on my own by sharing something that makes others happier about themselves, then all the better. That’s a Win/Win solution I will enjoy.

 

Right along with this new path I was shown, was the gift of support from the Philippines, and as I mentioned, in the numbers I would never have believed, so I am not one to walk away from a gift the Universe has presented, I would love to meet each and every one of you and share my smile and my appreciation, however the next best thing I can do is to point you in the direction I was shown, to show you your own path of success. At this time Nerium is not yet in the Philippines, but I believe the Universe knows it should be, and until it arrives you can send your family and friends that live in the US, or Japan, Hong Kong, Mexico, Canada or very soon Australia and Columbia to me, they can start their own little global business and then help you to succeed in yours when the time comes.

 

Please accept these words as my genuine words of thanks for your belief in me, and for your support in my little books Bawb’s Raven Feathers and my Nerium business. Please contact us and let us know you are out there and that you too believe in the Universe.

And for my new Filipino friends…

Nakakakita ay isang bahagi ng paniniwalang. . .

. . . at paniniwalang maaaring makatulong sa iyo na makita.

 

Hindi ko kailanman sana ay naniwala ay hindi ko na nakita ng aking mga mata ang suporta mula sa isang lugar hindi ko pa. Libo-libong ng mga gusto sa bawat bagong post mula sa gayon maraming magagandang mga tao, karamihan sa mga ito ay sa Pilipinas, at karamihan sa mga ito gumawa ng aking ngiti kahit na mas malaki.

 

Sa bawat bagong post ilipat ko inaabangan ang panahon, ito ay nagbibigay sa akin ng isang pagkakataon upang ibahagi sa mundo kung nasaan ako sa aking pakikipagsapalaran, at bilang isang manunulat, kailangan ko na maniwala sa kung ano ang isulat ko, kailangan kong malaman ang isang tao, sa isang lugar ay basahin ito at ngiti, kaya naniniwala ako, kapag nakita ko kaya magkano ang suporta mula sa mga kaya maraming mga tao na mahanap ako ng mga bagong liwanag at bagong pag-asa para sa hindi lamang sa aking sarili, ngunit para sa iba pang mga minimithi may-akda at manunulat. Ito ay upang maging higit sa isang panaginip, na kailangan mong gawin ang hakbang na iyon upang gawin itong isang katotohanan, ipasok sa iyong sarili, “tingnan ang” ang iyong sarili magtagumpay sa anumang ito ay ang iyong ginagawa, ibahagi ang iyong pag-unlad, ang iyong pakikipagsapalaran sa mundo at malaman na out doon sa isang lugar na may mga iba tulad ng sa iyo, naghihintay para sa maliit na spark ng inspirasyon.

 

Bilang isulat ko ito, ang mga epekto ng isang kamakailang pagbisita sa aking Editor Rachel Maliit, pinuspos ako ng bagong natagpuan kaguluhan at sigasig, ang kanyang enerhiya at ang kanyang mga simbuyo ng damdamin para sa kung ano ang ginagawa niya, kasama ang kanyang kakayahan upang polish ang aking salita hugs at gawin silang lamang na mas mainit, ay nagbigay sa akin na maliit na piraso ng dagdag na inspirasyon. Ako ay nadagdagan ang aking drive ngayon upang mahanap ang isang sponsor o isang mamumuhunan upang makatulong sa aking mga gawain ng pag-print at ilalabas Series Dalawa ni BawB Raven Feathers sa mundo.

 

Ngayon, ako ay may nabanggit sa marami sa aking mga post na kung naniniwala ka sa Uniberso, ang uniberso ay nakikinig, at ang Universe ay makatulong na gabayan ka sa iyong landas. Well, ang Universe ay ipinapakita sa akin Nerium, at ginawa ko ang mga pagpipilian upang sundin ang landas, isang paraan o iba ang makukuha ko ang aking maliit na libro-publish, at kung maaari kong gawin ito sa aking sarili sa pamamagitan ng pagbabahagi ng isang bagay na gumagawa ng iba happier tungkol sa kanilang sarili, pagkatapos ang lahat ng mas mahusay. Iyan ay isang Win / Win solusyon ay ay masiyahan.

 

Right kasama ang mga ito bagong landas ako ay ipinapakita, ay ang kaloob ng suporta mula sa Pilipinas, at tulad ng nabanggit ko, sa numero hindi ko nais na naniniwala, kaya hindi ako isa para lakarin ang layo mula sa isang regalo ang Universe ay iniharap, ako Gusto pag-ibig upang matugunan ang bawat at bawat isa sa inyo at ibahagi ang aking ngiti at ang aking pagpapahalaga, subalit ang susunod na pinakamahusay na bagay na maaari kong gawin ay upang ituro sa iyo sa direksyon ako ay ipinakita, upang ipakita sa iyo ang iyong sariling landas ng tagumpay. Sa oras na ito Nerium ay hindi pa sa Pilipinas, pero naniniwala ako sa Universe alam ito ay dapat na, at hanggang sa dumating ito maaari mong ipadala ang iyong pamilya at mga kaibigan na naninirahan sa US, o Japan, Hong Kong, Mexico, Canada o sa lalong madaling panahon Australia at Columbia sa akin, maaari nilang simulan ang kanilang sariling maliit na global na negosyo at pagkatapos ay makakatulong sa iyo upang magtagumpay sa iyo kapag ang oras ay dumating.

 

Mangyaring tanggapin ang mga salitang ito bilang aking tunay na mga salita ng salamat para sa iyong paniniwala sa akin, at para sa iyong suporta sa aking maliit na libro ni Bawb Raven Balahibo at ang aking Nerium negosyo. Mangyaring makipag-ugnay sa amin at ipaalam sa amin kung ikaw ay out doon at na masyado kang naniniwala sa Universe.

Change happens. . .

. . . because you let it.

 

So many changes, so little time, and yet, time is irrelevant when it comes to making a change in your life. What I am learning is that if you wish to make a change, or perhaps if you think changing something could help move you forward, then you have to make it happen. Change is all around us, not predetermined by a better time, or perhaps next week, change is immediate, it happens the moment you let yourself believe it is happening or can happen.

 

I guess, if you think about it, you could look at this in a parallel fashion to the chicken/egg dilemma, which comes first; the changes or the happiness? Personally, I was happy to make some changes, by doing so it allowed me to find a different kind of balance, a different way of living, a different way of feeling, and most important to me, a different way of “seeing” things.

 

Most recently was my take on Multi-Level Marketing, for the longest time I was a believer that the other name for MLM was a pyramid scheme, but just last night it was explained in such a way that a light went on and I see it a little differently. Tony and Vanessa Canevaro, were featured on the most recent Nerium University webcast, and they pointed out that everywhere you work, when you work for someone else has levels of authority and ownership, from the president down through the executives the directors to the management to you, the worker, and no matter how long you are there you will NEVER make the same as the people at the top, that, to me, sounded like a pyramid with no chance of change.

 

With Nerium, which of course is a well-designed Multi Level company, you can create the level at which you are comfortable, the people above you that thought highly of you and offered you the option to make some changes in your life, are only above you because that’s how society has trained you to see things, they were offered the same choices, the same options, they made the same changes you did, and, the people you offer these choices and changes to will be below you, but only on a piece of paper designed to show you where you are with your business, they are in fact your equals as are the people above you.

 

I was offered the choice to make the changes I required in my life, I want to stay retired, I want to set myself up for success, I want to live a comfortable lifestyle and most important to me I want to finish my book series BawB’s Raven Feathers. So I chose Nerium, I knew my why was to help people find their happiness, to rekindle lost smiles and promote self-confidence and self- esteem, and I came on board at a level I was comfortable with, I saw people above me, wonderful people with smiles and positive attitudes, helpful people that offered advice and knowledge, I saw goals and dreams, and places I wanted to be, so I climbed a level up, by sharing and doing what comes natural; believing. Now I see people below me, wonderful people with smiles and goals and a chance for them to change their levels and their lives. I intend on continuing to climb, each level lifting me higher in my business, and each level allowing me to work with the people I have shared with so they can climb to their own levels of achievement and success, so they can share their own happiness with others.

 

Call it what you will, but I would much rather find my happiness creating my own comfort level, with my own business instead of making someone else’s business better for them.

 

If you read this and you get it, if you need the chance to change and you are willing to believe it can happen if you let it, then this is an invitation to explore a new way of looking at things. Nerium offers a line of botanical based, age fighting/anti-wrinkle formulas, for the face, body and mind and all you have to do, is see how much they can change your life, then share that success with others.

If you focus on where you want to be tomorrow. . .

. . .where you are today soon becomes where you were yesterday.

 

So here it is August 16th and I find myself focused on where I want to be tomorrow, I am scrambling to find funding or an investor so I can get Series two of my little books published and out to the world for a December launch, they are in the final stages of editing with Rachel Small, then off to design with Fiona Raven, then Friesens for printing, sounds easy, well it will take some serious manifesting but I am confident I will find a way (I have an open line to the Universe).

 

A moment passes. . .

 

It only takes a moment to realize there are always options to every design, and by design the opportunity I was offered to share an amazing line of anti-aging/wrinkle fighting products for Mind AND Body with Nerium international is starting to take shape as my plan “B”. If I keep with the system, keep sharing what I believe in and people keep realizing that the system (and the product) works, I won’t need an investor or funding, I will cover the costs myself.

 

I have mentioned recently how the little things can grow into the biggest things of your life, and I speak from experience as recently I have been seen and liked by thousands of Filipino supporters, men and women that have acknowledged I am alive by hitting a “like” button, to me, that is the most amazing thing ever. I know that each one of them has the potential to talk to a friend, who in turn will talk to a friend, which, again by design is how the system works. Nerium doesn’t use advertising, they use word of mouth, testimonials and lots of before and after pictures of incredibly satisfied people, so imagine as I have, the rate at which the word about Nerium is expanding as we speak, among the people I have reached out to and shared what I believe in.

Imagine also, as I have, that such a successful company in only five years has grown to achieve incredible numbers in sales, and a reputation as one of the fastest growing companies EVER, so why wouldn’t I share this, why wouldn’t I want everyone to be as happy as I am and why wouldn’t everyone want to look and see for themselves what Nerium can do for them, both as a product and a small business. Talk to us about looking and feeling younger inside and out.

One of the things I have learned on this adventure is that we as humans are skeptical, of everything that seems too good to be true, well my friends this is one of those things that is that good, and it is true, all it takes from you is belief in yourself that you can make it happen and belief in a system that has been proven over and over again how well it works, and if that’s not enough, because Nerium is expanding you have the opportunity to decide where you want run your new business, because Nerium is INTERNATIONAL.

To all my Mates down under, Nerium is Fair Dinkum you may want to give it a burl, its coming your way soon.

http://www.everydayyouth.net/become-australia-nerium-brand-partner/ let Tracy know you saw this on BawB’s blog page.

So here I am, a happy, retired, published author of award winning books filled with inspirational poetry and positive energy, reaching out to the world and inspiring all to believe in your dreams and ask yourself WHY do you want to be happy? Now ask yourself WHY NOT take a step forward?.

Thoughts are things that you make happen by wanting them to be

If you believe in having happy thoughts then think of them, you’ll see.

Enjoying the pebbles that line your path. . .

. . .make the milestones seem so much bigger.

 

I am not sure just how to begin, suffice it to say that over the last four weeks I have grown in so many ways. The blog pages I have written and sent to the Universe have been seen, read, and liked by over Ten Thousand wonderful people in the Philippines, so I can actually say, that what started as a little page has grown into something bigger.

 

I take the time to write these pages because I believe if I don’t write them nothing will happen, and if I do something might happen, I choose the positive, I choose to be seen by as many people as I can get, to look at what I’m doing, I choose to make an effort towards making my happiness happen, after which I choose to accept the success that follows. We all have the vision, we can all see what is in front of us, sadly, some of us choose not to look, if a door of opportunity appears we walk away, choosing to believe that nothing will happen.

 

I am now in the position where I can create doors, I can give people options, things they can choose for themselves. People can now choose to buy my little books and fill their lives with positive energy, they can wake up seeing a smile in the mirror and they can be happy.  People can now also choose the Nerium lifestyle I am offering, they can use the products, look and feel wonderful about themselves, or they can choose to create their own small business and make other people’s lives so much happier while they are building a future for themselves as well.

 

For all of you wonderful supportive people in the Philippines, my little books are available through Create Space web site, click on the grey “site” button next to the search window, and select “store” then search for BawB’s Raven Feathers.

https://www.createspace.com/

As for the amazing Nerium products, they are not yet in your country, they will be one day, and until they are I still want to do something for you to show my appreciation for all your support. Nerium is available in the US, Canada, Korea, Japan, Mexico and soon in Australia and Columbia, if you have family or friends in any of these areas, please send them to the links below and we would love to introduce them to a life changing opportunity.

I believe it is a gift that an entire country should respond so favorably to my pages, my words and my energy, and this gesture, for right now is the very least I can do to show my gratitude, I have no idea when I am greeted by a friendly Filipino smile here in Canada if it is connected to one of the beautiful people that have supported me from the islands, but I would love to connect with those people from here.

 

Thank you for making my little things big, thank you for helping me grow

Thank you for sharing your wonderful energy and for letting my smile show.

It’s the little things that make you happy. . .

. . . before the big things make you successful.

 

My recent blog post received 2800 likes, that means 2800 people out there took a moment or two and read what I wrote, then added one extra second to hit the like button, and I thank every single one of you for making that choice. I have never been one for numbers, or stats, or whatever else this day and age has to offer, as I come from a part of a century where if the phone on the wall rang we answered it, if we got a letter in the mail we read it and then we wrote one back (with a pen and sometimes with weeks in between) and if the doorbell rang (yes, doors and phones both rang) it usually meant a friend wanted to play. So, who reads what and when, with instant feedback and counters with time and date stamps, still doesn’t mean much to me, but, having said that, 2800 likes on a blog I wrote, sure makes a writer smile.

 

The blog post I speak of was written recently, to share what it is I am doing with my little books, and to share where I am in my new Nerium adventure, both are important to me because I believe in them and having this opportunity (and means) to share them with the world, in my mind, gives the world the chance to choose whether or not they wish to look at them, and what actions to take when they have.

 

I have had, what I would consider, to be some the best marketing advice a new self-published author could ever receive, Beth Kallman Werner http://www.authorconnections.com worked very closely with me because she believed in me, she believed I had a passion for what I was doing, and she saw in me the energy that was required to move forward with my books, or for that matter, with any project I took on. So here I am, wrapping up the final edits of Volume IX and soon moving on to the last volume in Series two, in fact the last Volume of the BawB’s Raven Feathers Series, and at this point while shedding a tear of joy (and one of sadness because this part of my journey is ending), I am thrilled at the response I have received for series one. I have received three awards from NGIBA http://www.indiebookawards.com sold out of most of my single copies of the hard cover editions, I have only 16 box sets left and my paperbacks are picking up in sales in the Chapters, Coles and Indigo locations across Canada. Thank you so very much to all of you who choose to read my words and share your smiles.

 

The good news is that now when people around the world ask where they can buy my little books, and I send them here;

https://www.createspace.com/pub/simplesitesearch.search.do?sitesearch_query=bawbs+raven+feathers&sitesearch_type=STORE

Where they can choose to enjoy my little books for themselves.

IMG_1501 copy

More good news is the information I am sharing with the world about my new Nerium adventure is also starting to turn some heads, because I believe in these products, and because I am sharing them with the same passion. People around the world, Japan, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Taiwan, Canada, USA, Mexico, Australia soon, and opportunities in other countries will open up as well, are all given the choice either to try the products and just live happy, or start their own business by sharing the products, live happy AND be successful.

 

Both choices I share with you will change your life, my little books will fill you with inspiration and allow your inner smile to shine through, and the Nerium products will help you to win your battle against the visual signs of ageing and stress, by making you look and feel better inside and out. Have a look at what is offered, order what you choose, then make a choice between just looking and feeling better or starting your own business helping others to look and feel better.
