If you don’t look where you’re going. . .

You will never know where you’ve been.

 

So much has happened in the last little while, and I know that sounds cliché but, unless we take a moment and reflect once in a while, we never really understand the “movement”. It seems like forever since I have sat down and transferred thought to paper, and to most it is a task that seldom makes back burner status, but to a writer, it is a “glitch”, a feeling that something is missing, almost an emptiness caused by a disconnection to the world, or in my case, I feel like I have not chatted with the Universe to let it know I am well, and to thank it for guiding my thoughts and sharing with me the energy of life.

 

Where do I start? Even that in itself is a question I have been asked lately, “where is your mindset when you sit down to write” and “how do you know what to say”. I will address those two things first; My mindset when I sit down to write is open, open to all that is positive and peaceful in the Universe, I feel balance, and I try not to focus on any one thing, rather, I wait to feel what comes to my mind first, then I roll my thoughts into words, the finished product is usually something inspirational and motivating, and with a little tweaking is perfect to share with the world. Second; I never “know” what to say, in fact, what happens is I “feel” what needs to be said. I guess an easy way to explain that is; if I see a picture of a flower, I feel the beauty of the flower, I feel the sunshine, the breeze, the dew left behind by the dawn, I feel the energy the flower shares with all who take the time to smell it… I “feel” what the flower feels and put it into words.

 

Now, on to my update, I have met SO many wonderful people recently, people that share the energy in the company I am with, people that are grateful to live clean healthy lifestyles, to have actually found youth and vitality just by trying something new and wonderful. But, its not all about the company, it’s about these people, sure they are all running their business, but they took the time to get to know me, who I am, what I do, they read my books, they follow my FB page, some have even shared smiles that found my heart and brought new light to my life.

 

These “things” that happen in our life, happen because we believe, because we ask the Universe for positive change, well, let me tell you, my world is FILLED with positive change, my business is growing, my books (Series II of BawB’s Raven Feathers) have been proofed and will be off to design shortly, but best of all, I have become re-acquainted with a man I have not seen in a while, I was introduced by a wonderful friend to Robert Chomany, the man responsible for the books, for the smiles, for the inspiration, the man my Mom, Bless her heart, raised me to be.

 

It seems somehow I grew comfortable hiding behind a book title, a name, an image, I was so comfortable being invisible that I forgot about how incredibly rewarding it is to be seen. I am Robert Chomany, I am proud, and I am Inspired to share with the Universe this person I am happy to BE.

 

When you feel the wind, then spread your wings, its time for you to soar,

There is a time for you to see yourself, how beautiful you are and even more..

There are two kinds of people. . .

 

. . . and I love them both.

 

There are people that see a sign and ignore it, it’s not for them, it’s for everyone else, and there are those that read the signs and then point the rest of us in the right direction. Keep in mind that signs are not all billboard size and full of information, signs can be subtle, signs can be just a hint or they can come with fanfare. The thing is, a sign could be that split second in life when something new can be introduced that may or may not change or alter ones’ direction.

 

The interesting thing about signs is it doesn’t matter how big and obvious they are, it is up to the individual to actually interpret and appreciate them, some are warnings, some are guides, some are sent by the Universe others come with a smile attached, again, whatever the actual sign is, it has to be noticed and acted upon in order to fully comprehend its meaning.

 

I have never been one to waste time trying to understand the meanings behind many of the signs I have come across, but, to be honest I have found myself quite perplexed with the logic behind some signs, for example: a sign that reads “don’t do this” to some, becomes almost a challenge to do exactly “that”, and it is then I perceive that if the sign advising people of what not to do was not created then what they are not supposed to do would not have become evident and challenged them.

 

That being said, some of the signs I have been fortunate enough to “see” have led me to places I was destined to “be”. Some were presented by friends that have either been there before or wished for me to join them on an adventure, others were, I believe, sent by the Universe and directed right at me, and I was/am insightful enough to change my direction spontaneously (one of the perc’s of having gypsy blood) and see where a new path will take me. Some signs even come with a gift, not as a lure to follow them, but more as a thank you that you did.

 

There are indeed two kinds of people out there, and I am both of them, I have gone out of my way to step on the odd patch of grass, (carefully of course) and I have even temporarily changed my name to “staff” just to see why he has his own door, and I have followed the direction presented to me by subtly obvious signs. I will continue to write my word hugs as per the sign from the Universe, I will continue to work with and beside the youth that choose to share my path, a subtle sign as a result of my writing, and I will follow this path I am on now after seeing the signs that were put up by my friends towards a chemical free, healthy lifestyle, and a new place to shop for things that are good for me.

 

Now I will share these sign with you, for those out there that are that one kind of person, DO NOT go to these sites, there is nothing for you here!!! and for those that are the other kind of person, please go to any one of these sites and have a look at the options to create a cleaner, healthier lifestyle… and yes, the gift that comes with these signs is for you, to thank you because you did. These sites are open to all kinds of people.

If your life is measured only in years. . .

. . .think of the moments you are missing.

 

A new year is upon us, and like every year before this one, it didn’t sneak up, it didn’t creep, in fact, it came as no surprize at all, we have known for a full year it was coming, and we are gifted with the knowledge that another new one is on its way. So why then do we wait to define our year until the final hour we have lived in it, to me it makes more sense to resolve issues (complete with resolution) as they happen, say for example; a simple life glitch in June should be resolved in June and chalked up to a wonderful learning experience, rather than waiting until December 31st and saying “wow, that year sucked”. I guess this is just me sharing as I do, my opinion, and being as usual so incredibly happy that my year was filled with growth and positive energy.

I have experienced this year the bitter sweet joy of finishing a series of books, (I still can’t believe I have written 10 books) which by the way has opened up a bigger door for a new books, see, positive thoughts bring positive things, and I met some amazing people, shared space and light with incredible souls, found spiritual and physical connections between heart, soul and mind, started a new business and shared more smiles this year that I thought was humanly possible, but when I take out the “human” factor and just become happy knowing the wind has no weight load restrictions and will always carry as many smiles as I can send, then what I think is humanly possible, changes drastically.

I will (for the first time ever) try and keep this post short because I have some horses to hug and they don’t like to be kept waiting, so to create a brand-new loop and make sure the world is a part of it:

Series two of Bawb’s Raven Feathers is done the editing stage, and a huge heart sent Thank you wrapped in a hug goes out to Rachel Small for working her incredible magic with such amazing patience, the next stop is Fiona Raven for design and more magic, stay tuned, they will be out there before you know it… I am excited, and yes, I did miss the Christmas season  with series two, but that too was a lesson in life, if you set a goal and it wasn’t reached, smile and change it to one you can reach.

My little Nerium Business is doing incredibly well, and this year is going to be huge, if you would have told me a year ago that one day I would be a successful entrepreneur sharing an amazing anti-aging wrinkle fighting skin care product while standing in a room filled with happy smiling faces while I introduce a wonderful inspiring soul (Thank you KC), I would have told you that you were out of your mind, however, what I have learned is NEVER say never, and I have thousands of new friends all over the world that read my posts and who will one day discover exactly what I mean when they start their own Nerium International Business, plus all of my new friends in Aus, Columbia, Japan and the UK, yes, you bet I’m excited, life is what you make it and I’m making mine fantastic, you want a part of this then climb aboard and hang on.

*Note to self; the world revolves around MLM and entrepreneurs, if it wasn’t for those that say no, it wouldn’t be as exciting to help those that yes become so successful.

My life just keep getting better because I let the positive things happen, believe in you and yours can too the universe is waiting for you to tap in.

Stay tuned my friends, the Year is young … beautiful things happen in an instant, like that smile you will see in the mirror.

This could be your year to change your life, send me a note, if you don’t ask you won’t know, or send a note to one of my friends, they will answer your questions and help you find your smile, my books and my little business are not all about me, I have learned that a successful entrepreneur makes whatever they do about the happiness of others not just the happiness of themselves 🙂 from Art to Zoology, whatever you are sharing with the world, share it with a smile.

You don’t know. . .

. . . what you don’t know.

 

I guess it is safe to say that I didn’t know a lot about what I was doing in life, so I learned as much as I could, now, six decades later I have learned a lot more about what I didn’t know.

 

Absolutely everyone you listen to will have their own ideas, their own perception on what it is they are teaching or sharing. Something else I have learned, and this is only my perception, is that when we hear the words “you have to” it puts us (me) in a defensive state, I would feel much better if I had the option; “you should” or “you could”, hearing this would make us (me) feel much more at ease.

 

My most recent adventures have led me to an incredible amount of knowledge in a subject I knew absolutely NOTHING about, the first is becoming a published Author, Five successful little books (soon to be ten) BawB’s Raven Feathers, filled with inspiration and word hugs, and the second is starting my own little business with Nerium International, it is because of the similarities (and the questions I have been asked) that leads me to sharing this with you;

 

So you want to write a book? Ok, here is the readers digest version of the steps, First; write the book (I have heard this is the easy part) then find THE editor for you (this step is important, your editor has to believe in you) then find THE most awesome designer (also important, your designer has to be able to create using your thoughts alone) then find a printer (yup, also important if you want good quality for your work) and there you have it, you have written your first book. The point here is one you may have missed, none of the people helping you with your book are “above you” they are on your level doing what they love to do WITH you, and if they do an excellent job you are going to share them with others, so, on that note, Thank you to my incredible team (Family) of book experts;

Rachel Small (Editor), Jessee Wise (Graphic Design/Illustrations) Fiona Raven (Designer), Friesens Printing (Printing), Beth Kallman Werner(Marketing), and a list of others too long to add in this post, but the most important are those that believed in me, and you all know who you are.

 

So, you want to start your own (Global) business, something comes along and you think it sounds like a good idea, BUT, you have heard all the negative hype about pyramids, and MLM and schemes that you walk away from an opportunity. Well, I can’t tell you what I don’t know about all these things but I can tell you what I have learned, again, this is my perspective (it’s important to say that J ) All of the people I am working WITH are on the same level as me, by that I mean they sit across from me at the table, they give me advice and tips, they share their experience and their energy, they want me to succeed in something they believe in, so, consequently, I too believe. Not only that but I was impressed that the products do what they say they do, on me.

 

So, I am asked often if Nerium is a pyramid scheme, my answer is “no more than the place you are working right now” in fact, if you are on the entry level right now where you work, chances are your boss above you, or his boss above him, or the boss that have bosses above them don’t want you to have their jobs, so you are stuck there in your pyramid job.

With MLM the “L” in the middle stands for level, but is more accurately a doorway to a new adventure. I have learned to look at Nerium as a wagon wheel laying on its side, no levels, just spokes connecting each of us to each other, all sharing the same end goal, to share a smile and something we believe in. This business is NOT all about me, it is all about sharing what I know and what I am learning about happiness, and, MLM without “levels”.

 

What I know is, I am happy, what I am learning is being shared by these wonderful ladies, please, if you want to learn about the business, or the products send them a hello and ask your questions, they would love to work WITH you because they are on YOUR level:

If you want to chat with me about trying or purchasing some amazing Anti-aging/Wrinkle fighting skin care, or join my team of incredible entrepreneurs that believe in themselves and what they are doing, please send me a note I would love to meet you:

Or if you want to talk to my team of up and coming work at home at a successful plan “B” GLOBAL business owners please ask and I will point you in their direction, my books and my business are not about me, my happiness comes from knowing you are happy, but, when all is said and done, you are the only one that can make that choice.

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.

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.

http://www.nerium.ca/join/belish?alias=belish

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.
