Why Am I Not Getting the Tapping Success I want?

tap-success

I get notes all the time from folks with questions about how to use EFT, or MTT, as many are calling it now, or just plain tapping. I’ll refer to it as tapping from now on.

And no, we’re not talking about tap dancing! Gotta have a little fun now and then, yes?

This week someone asked me what to do if you don’t seem to be getting results tapping.

Here are just a few aspects to this question that can help you resolve the dilemma.

A. What is it you don’t like?

First, identify what’s going on that you don’t like. Like, I lost my job, my husband’s having an affair, I feel ugly, I can’t make enough (or any!) money as an enterpreneur.

Those are all what I call umbrella issues that are too broad to tap on and get good results without looking at some details.

B. Where do you feel it?

What I want you to do is duck under the umbrella and pick out the places where you feel ughy. Like, it felt awful to be yelled at when I was fired. I hated myself when I shouted at my kid. I feel so anxious about marketing my business.

C. Name it

Zero down a bit more, and name how you felt – I was so ticked off, I was so ashamed, I felt so humiliated.

D. What’s your body doing?

Now, how did you *know* you felt that way? Did you blush to your hair-roots? Were you clenching your fists, did your heart feel like it was going to blast our of your chest, did you stop breathing? Pin it down so you know some exact symptoms.

E. Rate it

Then, rate how intense those symptoms, or  feelings, are, with 0 being the least and 10 the most. WRITE it down, because you’ll be amazed to see your rating after you’ve tapped, and may not even believe you had anything going on at all in the first place!

F. Tap

Now you have solid, identifiable things upon which to tap: even though my heart felt like it was bursting when he yelled at me…I didn’t want to cry so my chest felt tight and I couldn’t breathe….

NOTE:

If you have never tapped before, go to: EFTinEveryHome.com and see what I’m talking about. You get a freebie run-through mini session right there so you can get a taste of tapping.

Tell everyone you know about the site, too – I want to see every last person on the planet have this incredible key to emotional sanity.

If you’re a practitioenr, send your new clients there to check it out before their first session with you – it will save you tremendous time having to explain the points, how it works, etc.

Fa. Then be sure to say you accept yourself. If you can’t say that without your mind balking, tap on even though I can’t accept myself until you can say it and be pleased by saying it. Then continue the original session.

Fb. If you are one of those people who can’t seem to feel, then use the word *think* – what did you think when he yelled at you? What do you think about being a home business owner? Many times that will help get the right words. It helps guys a lot, and people who tend to be more mental or academic.

It’s in the details.

If you don’t know how you feel, look to where your body hurts or has tension. If you don’t know how your body feels, look to memories, what people said to you, what you think about something. Get the details. You’ll be able to get real results using these hints. Get the details. Get the details.

And remember: it’s all energy.

No matter what’s going on, it’s just energy, and you can tap it into being useful, productive and creative even if it *looks* disruptive, limiting and deadly right now. It’s just energy. Choose creativity!

Hope that helps.

How to Keep Yourself Focused and On Track Despite the BS

stay-on-track

I hear people say they have such a hard time staying on track–or even imagining their dreams–much less creating them, in today’s economic and political chaos.

Do you get caught there, too?

I say it’s all a big dream anyway, why not make it the way you want it to be?

I mean, why the heck not??

See, what you are perceiving as ‘the environment’ and ‘your life’ is really a package of eye-ear-nose-mouth-skin-mind-energy-felt results of your past decisions.

Your house is the place in which, in the past, you decided to live. That’s a result of your thoughts, words and actions.

Your relationships are the result of the decisions and actions you made in the past.

Your success or lack of it is a result of decisions made in the past.

One decision, many steps

Do I need to go on? I don’t think so. But why is this important? Because in one decision, it can all be changed. And you can keep changing it.

One client reported to me last night that she had made the decision to stop listening to a friend’s negativity, because she felt like it pulled her down and away from her own inspired thoughts and activities.

She decided to just believe in herself and be as positive as she could, and tap on what wasn’t working until it did..

As a direct result of her new empowered vibration, she ended up with new signups to her weekend workshop, three new clients, and any number of other little pieces of evidence of her decision’s effectiveness.

She changed her present to affect what is now her past, and to create a future she loves.

Powerful.

Vicki Warren, Psychic: Uncurable with Only 6 Months to Live

warren

Vicki Warren is a psychic who works with people on any number of topics, including archetypal patterns, health, relationships, police cases and many others.

She was told 17 years ago that she had only 6 months to live because she had an ‘uncurable’ condition.

IDareYouRadio.comWell, either I just interviewed a ghost, or she had the guts and wherewithal to buck the odds she was given to create her own choice in living!

The Internal Switch

When you listen in to my interview with Vicki, you’ll hear how she created her own internal ‘switch’ that helped her heal, (getting the amalgam out of her teeth was critical).

And why she made the decision to NOT go to doctor or hospital-recommended ‘support’ groups, and the dynamic thing she did instead.

My session….

When I had a session with her, she zeroed in on some issues I’d never spoken about with anyone, ever. What a surprise to hear her coming out with it all! And she also helped me resolve something I had been dealing with for over 50 years.

Get the demo

Coffee Doughnuts & God by Vicki WarrenWe also give you a short demo of how she works – you’ll hear at one point a surprising bit about my vertebra I hadn’t known about – and that checked out later to be right on!

As you can probably gather by now, Vicki lives for living, not for getting ready to die.

 If you’re on the same wave-length, you’ll enjoy this interview. I hope you’ll be inspired by this well-known and highly respected psychic.

Sudden and Extreme Out of the Blue Breakfast Ecstacy

all-one

I recently had an experience of extreme ecstasy – eating breakfast!

I have a small semi-enclosed area by my house which I use as a studio. When the weather is nice, that’s where I like to eat, sitting in my big comfy chair.

For some reason, I got a wild hair last week and bought Raisin Bran and milk. I virtually never eat cereal or milk, so who knows where that urge came from!

As I was sitting there munching…

I was thinking about how fortunate I felt about having come through a certain hospital bout so easily, and for having really created a foundation for feeling happy despite what went on around me.

I thought of that phrase, “we’re all One.”

Well, I thought, if we really are all One, then there is no separation from me and anything or anyone else.

I put the spoon in my mouth, and suddenly the universe slowed down to a crawl, and I experienced a kind of a flattening – how to describe this – it was as if nothing stood out as any more or less important than anything else, and everything was divinely given, divinely provided.

A Gift

The spoon and cereal became a Gift of the Universe itself, and as I slid it over my tongue, my “regular” perception of my-hand-holding-spoon-feeding-my-face became Universe-feeding-my-soul.

It was as if my hand disappeared, and the food floated there all by itself, ready for me to nurture myself with, almost as a babe does at the breast.

Somehow I was able to extend the experience for about five bite-chew-swallows. It shook me to my roots. My body was trembling and tears were streaming down my face, and my heart felt like it would burst, and for once my chatty mind was completely still.

I felt so happy I was sure I’d explode!

It’s such a strange thing that I had the urge to buy and eat food that, in the past, gave me belly aches, and that I haven’t eaten in at least 30 years. Spirit works in strange ways!

Here’s to bliss for you, too!

Stacey Vornbrock, Professional Sports Performance Expert

stacey

 

 

 

 

When I had surgery a couple years ago, my friend Stacey Vornbrock helped me heal so much faster that my doc told me I was 2 whole weeks ahead of where ‘normal’ people would ordinarily be after the type of surgery I’d had. He shook his head and told me ‘just keep at it, whatever it is.’ Too bad he wasn’t interested in how I did it!

I’m pretty accustomed to big, rapid results. But when she used her protocols on me, I was astounded at how *much* better I felt and how very fast it happened. I was able to sit up for longer periods of time and have the clear head I needed in order to continue my work. I know I’d have been in pain and a mush-head for far longer without her help.

From shy beginnings….

I watched Stacey start out as a nervous practitioner about bringing EFT to the golf world. Over the past several years she has evolved into an incredibly experienced sports performance expert whose clients are so famous she can’t even talk about them!

She’s gone way beyond the EFT basics, diligently using her very targeted and specific protocols to help people not only excel at sports, but relieve travel trauma (jetlag, altitude and weather changes…) and recover from body injury and surgery. She takes it even further to help bring back natural balance.

I’m so pleased to be able to introduce her to you and the beyond-the-beyond value of the information in the ebooks she has released!

(Can’t wait? Get her books right here!)

body-01 travel-cover-02 injury-3d-3h balance-02

I’m particularly pleased to recommend Stacey and her ebooks because I’ve experienced the results of using her methods myself, so I can recommend them 100% assured that they are not just good, but utterly amazing.

*And,* because I was lucky enough to have the privilege of designing and building the ebooks for her! So I have had pretty intimate contact with each and every page of all four books, cover to cover.

A process she took me through, herself, helped me help my body get rid of the anaesthesia and the  chemicals used in surgery, as well as the antibiotics and pain-killers I was saturated with. I felt nauseous and weak, couldn’t sleep well, and felt as if my guts were in backwards.

After we did the session using the body recovery processes, I felt immediate relief, and my belly felt more like the one I had been born with.

I won’t kid you – I still had low-level belly ache for the week before the last tube was removed – but these protocols (I used at least one of them them every day – I’m no fanatic!) helped me so much I hate to think how I’d have fared without them. I do *not* like pain, so I have been so grateful to have access to these processes!

In Hawaiian, there’s an old word, hele – pronounced HEH-lay – which means ‘get on it and get going’. I invite you to hele on over to her site and grab your own ebooks for yourself!: Get her books right here!

What’s very cool is that Stacey thought long and hard about exactly what you’d need to make your experience using her processes really effective. Here are just two of all the things I love about her books:

1. Rather than getting a book you have to scroll up and down to read (annoying!), she had me design it so it fills your screen horizontally for greater ease of reading, comprehension and tap-along-ability. And yes, you can print them out, of course.

2. And, rather than just getting an ebook, she also took the time to record a full MP3 of the same information so you can listen and tap along as you drive, run, race, walk, and play.

Having worked with her to create these books, I can tell you personally how picky (compliment!) she is – she likes to get things right and make them as clear and usable as possible. She didn’t let one thing get by her!

So – if you want to:

1.  perform at peak levels on a consistent basis
2.  heal quickly after trauma or pain
3.  significantly reduce soreness & pain after workouts
4.  recover physically and mentally after competition
5.  travel anywhere without jetlag, and adjust to new time zones, weather conditions and altitudes easily and quickly
6.  eliminate drugs, antibiotics and other harmful toxins and chemicals from your body
7.  resolve dehydration, extreme fatigue and over-acidity
8.  clear your energy of people, places and substances in your body and system
9.  bring your body back to its natural balance….

…then hele on over (with aloha) to Stacey’s site and get your own copies!

I won’t tell you which is my favorite, because you obviously have different needs. Whether you want to get well or get more fit or travel painlessly, you’ll find your own book to suit.

aloha –
Angela

I Love Susan Boyle’s Big Eyebrows! And her Voice? Oh My….

SUSAN-BOYLE

You probably saw the big hoo-ha when Susan Boyle, the power-voiced gal who made such a hit on the Britain’s Got Talent show, came on stage.

If not, check this out for some real inspiration.

The judges and people in the audience made faces, raised their eyebrows and had clear disappointment and doubts that she could be any good.

Shame on them!

Frankly, I felt embarrassed for the judges and the people in the audience who were so quick to judge Susan Boyle on her looks – she certainly doesn’t have a thing to do with skinny legs, belly-button rings or silky-sexy clothes!

The sheer arrogance of both audience and judges wa astounding – like someone who isn’t dressed in designer clothing can’t possibly have anything to contribute, oh no! Good grief. Where have we come in our supposed culture that we reserve talent for the Pretties?!?

Surprise surprise!

The second she opens her mouth in song, it’s as if a tsunami of energy swamps the hall – within seconds people are on their feet crying, laughing, clapping, yelling in joy and full of the same enormous spirit Susan is radiating. And they keep clapping and shouting for her until after the song is done! Every time I watch it I feel full of the magic and tears and the sheer authenticity of the woman.

There are those who say the staging and setup are all hype; who say she hasn’t got what it takes to go beyond her ’15 minutes of fame;’ that she needs to get ‘with it’ with her clothes and media-presence.

Why? What’s wrong with her the way she is?

Why do we insist that people fit in to our narrow ideals so WE can be comfortable?!? I think she’s more savvy and honest and grounded than the next person, and knows in her heart far better what to do than the flight of pretties who come and go every year.

Susan’s birth was apparently a hard one, with resulting oxygen deprivation and minor brain damage. Perhaps that’s what has kept this golden canary in the shadow so long, not flitting out of the nest as soon as she knew she had a voice that could thrill.

I hope she has all kinds of people around her who can steady her hand amidst the glitz and glimmer and onslaught of media, because if she can sing like she did on that stage, I want to hear more. She has the posture and presence of an opera singer, and belts her song out from the very center of her heart – who could ask for  more?

Frumpy? Or distinct?

Who cares if her eyebrows are thick and powerful? Who cares if her dress is 50s and she walks like an excited five-year old? I think she looked like the embodiment of Heart. Who needs another skimpily-S&M-dressed Madonna or Britney? I say keep those eyebrows!

One report called her a ‘frumpy spinster’ – critics and reviewers somehow feel they have the unalienable right to cut people and their works down in razor-thin slivers. Does it make them feel better to be so denigrating and nasty? If those same people calling her those names were on the stage, I can assure you they’d feel crushed by such comments.

This was a great example of how, when we let our judgments and prejudices and cultural beliefs cloud our eyes, we can be shaken out of our trees in a split second. What a fabulous surprise Susan Boyle is! We should be so lucky as to have her in our lifetime!

No more cynicism!

No more arrogance!

No more judging books by covers!

Yes more asking for and claiming your Dreams – go Susan!

Create Your Financial Reality by Changing Your Thoughts

money-reality

Today’s economy is freaking people out, no bones about it. Here are a few of items you may find interesting. I decided to look up the definition of the word, ‘economy’.

Before I list the ones I thought were most clear, I suggest that you stop a second and see what the word ‘economy’ brings up for you.

What do ‘money’ or ‘economy’ mean?

When I put that question to myself, I thought immediately about how we operate on a fiat currency system, rather than one backed by gold or some physical substance of perceived value.

I also thought about how a fiat economy, by definition, always historically collapses within a specific period of time; and how over the last 90 years this system was introduced and implemented by people who were so saturated with greed that their own self-aggrandizement came before the lives of everyone else.

I also thought about how so many important public programs and institutions are being cut back and even eliminated. None of what is going on today makes sense to me if we are to carry on creating fulfilling lives.

Now, here are some of the definitions I found:
Economy:
1. The system by which money, industry and trade are organized
2. The system of production, distribution and consumption
3. Efficient use of resources
4. Effective management
5. A system of allocating resources based only on the interaction of market forces, supply and demand
6. A true market economy is free of governmental influence, collusion and other external influences.

My question is this

If we cannot do anything immediately effective to change the way our commerce and currency are set up, what CAN we do?

What to do?

There are several things we can each do to create a new relationship with the world and the economy, no matter what is going on outside of ourselves.

star-yellow 1. Realize that every thought, feeling, belief and action you generate and act upon determines your reality. Take deeper responsibility.

Use energy practices to even out old self-worth issues that keep you shy, angry, sad, depressed, etc.

You may think you, your energy and your life are inconsequential in the Big Scheme of Things, but that is utterly untrue.

Your energy is needed right now right here in order to help dream up, create and nurture a new, clean paradigm.

Energies are shifting so fast and so intensely that it’s easy to get caught up in the density – don’t allow it. If you have to use EFT (the Emotional Freedom Techniques) all day long, do so. This is not a dress rehearsal.

star-yellow2. Remember that we participate in this economy, even if we don’t like it.

So every one of us needs to be conscious of how we literally vote with our dollars. And I know you know what I mean by that. Use each dollar as if it was a ballot cast in the voting box. It will make a huge difference in how you use your funds, and will produce results that will surprise and please you.

star-yellow3. Stop complaining and ask what you can do differently in your own life, whether tiny or huge, to create the shifts in your life that would make it better. Then make a pact with yourself to DO those little shifts. DO those big things. Do it, and see how cool it is to feel like, “Hey! I made a difference in my own life!”

star-yellow4. Get rid of excesses and distractions. Really ask yourself at a deep level what it is you value and if you really want to keep spending time and energy on things that only have half or minimal value to you. Just stop doing them. They waste your life energy. Concentrate on what helps you bring yourself internal pleasure and even a soul-thrill.

star-yellow5. Tap. If you have no clue what I’m talking about, get FREEbie info at EFTinEveryHome.com.

Tap all day, as I said. Don’t let your emotions or thoughts be either totally numb or overpowering you. Tap on feelings of anger, fear, sadness, grief, shame, impatience, helplessness and powerlessness.

Tap on thoughts of blame, shame, complain, vengeance, retaliation, disappointment, terr-or, disgust, dismay, self-sabotage, not-good-enough, etc.

Keep tapping until you can come to a place of inner peace, even if it’s a tiny bit at a time. How can we say we want peace if we can’t even create it in our own minds and bodies first? The journey starts within – always.

star-yellow6. Remember that you are part of life’s Great Circle, and that you are no less than and no more than any other creature in the universe. You are valued and honored, and your contributions, life energy and individual spark are part of that which keeps us all on fire and alive.

Head into the Wind and Hold onto the Helm Despite the Fear

sailing

Have you felt the energy lately?

Doesn’t it feel crazy?

Pay attention here, because this can be one of the most powerful times of your life.

The lull

As a kid sailing out on Long Island Sound and on the Atlantic, I learned about the lull.

Each time I encountered storms I noticed a funny thing. That almost always before a storm – even a small squall – there was a split-second lull before the energies shifted and the storm came and broke on top of us.

Where we had been cutting clean through the water, all sails smooth and everything functioning well, there was an almost indistinguishable moment when everything seemed to just *** pause.

Just for a moment

You could see the waves flatten out momentarily, feel the wind get shifty and the eyes of your crew as they look at you for direction. The air gets a yellowish tinge, and a fine, smooth greyish line of light on the horizon starts to approach you on the water as the darkening skies lower themselves atop your boat.

As skipper, your attention has to include your crew and what each one is doing, your boat and how it feels under your seat, the helm and how it’s acting in your hands, the wind and what it’s doing on the water and in your sails, the water and what’s under its depths, where you are n relation to everything around you, and, of course, the weather in general.

Life-changing choices

You suddenly feel very small on a very vast ocean. And you know instinctively that the choices you make in this split-second lull are paramount to your survival.

If you’re close enough to one, you might make it to a sheltering cove where you can drop sails and a wind-anchor, and point your boat upwind to keep it steady as the storm rages around you.

But if you can’t, you need to move fast.

Switch on your GPS beacon.

Reef or drop all sails immediately, secure anything movable to the decks, make sure all crew has life jackets on and are tethered to the boat – including yourself – and again, head into the wind.

Listen to what I just said:

You stop, pay attention, make a choice.

When you’ve chosen, you take action: you stop all generated movement, take precautionary measures to protect your self and crew and possessions, and face the wind.

Why face the wind?

Because it means you’re offering the least resistance to the storm. The bow, or front, of your boat is pointed, and cuts through the water and helps you climb over the waves, even if they are three times higher than your mast.

Because if those waves hit you side on, you’re toast – they’ll flip you over so fast you won’t know left from right. And they’ll keep pounding you.

Because if you face the wind, you can ride it,
rather than being ridden.

It takes strength to ride a storm. The wind will try to rip you around and propel you where you don’t want to go. The force of the water will try to take the helm from your hands, and the gusts, rain and swells will try to sweep you overboard, fill your bilges and try to swamp you.

But if you’ve been smart enough to be prepared, if you keep your mind clear and calm, your crew ready and efficient and your hands firmly on the helm, even if the storm lasts for a day or three, you’ll make it. You’ll make it.

Your mast and other parts of your boat might get broken or washed overboard, you may be mighty hungry from not being able to take time to eat, you may be exhausted, cold and soaked through to the bone, but you’ll make it.

Right now

Right now, in our specific time, I can feel the air like the frisson of electricity in the air before a hurricane.

Right now is the time when you need to make your choice: run for a safe cove or haul all your sails down, make sure your crew is safe, lash everything securely, head to the wind and keep your helm with courage, strength and clarity.

Most of us don’t have a safe cove, whether financial or otherwise. Without making a clear, conscious choice right now to create safety and even a new reality for themselves, people are sitting ducks for a reality of crisis and disaster. Since ‘news’ about that is consistently regurgitated on the news day in and day out, it’s easy to buy into.

Don’t be like them.

Make the choice to ride the storm with calm and grace.

Pull as many sails down as you can – cut your excesses and clear out any distractions. Maintain your headway – be clear on your purpose, intentions and destination.

Keep your crew safe. Make sure your family, friends and loved ones are safely ensconced within your heart, and tell them how important they are to you. Do everything you can to support their lives and potential.

I’m not saying be a sappy-corny mush-mush! Just look them in the eye and smile, or squeeze their hands, or say quietly that they’re the most important thing in the world to you. Be real, and say it as often as you can from your heart – even if it’s in actions rather than words.

If you’ve had a crisis where people have helped you out,
you know how important being loved is.

Dish it out the same way you’d like to receive it.

Make sure your life-jacket is on

Make sure your inner GPS is connected – that inner light within you that knows exactly what to do how and when. And LISTEN to it.

Always, always hang onto your helm.
Never, ever let go.

You’re the caption of your destiny. Even if you have only a sliver of an idea where you’re going, your inner GPS and your determination to hold onto the helm – your integrity, your knowingness about who you are and your values – will get you through any storm.

If you panic now, during this lull, well, I wish you the best. If you keep thinking fearfully about the disaster, disaster is what you get.

If you understand that even things that look ‘bad’ can turn out to be miracles and blessings, miracles and blessings are what you get.

If you can keep from panicking and hold onto what is dear to you and keep imagining that something amazing is about to happen, it will.

In the accelerated energies of now, things shift in the blink of an eye – can you keep up with it? Can you let go of the flotsam and jetsam of old beliefs and judgments enough to see the gleam of the sun as it begins to shine through, even as the storm rages?

Head into the wind!

Face your daily circumstances with courage and the conviction that you can and will not only make it through this storm, but end up in an incredible harbor you never realized existed.

What’s that new harbor like? If you could have any wish, and could create that harbor, what would it be full of? Fill it now in your mind so you can head to the wind and end up there.

Take advantage of the lulls. Don’t be fooled into thinking everything will return to what we used to call normal. It won’t. We’re in a time of massive shift, and it’s our opportunity to face it and create, even under what seem to be the most dire circumstances.

Stop trying to Get

Get more status, wealth, money, success – whatever it is you constantly strive for. None of that is important now. Take a breath and let material things be material things, not the focus of your attention.

Give it up. Literally – raise your hands above your head and shout, I give it Up! I give it all to That, the I Am! And trust that the Great I Am has had you in its hands all along.

What IS important is to expand your inner knowing, your inner light, to live it and share it. Strive to Be – the clearest, hummingest, brightest light you can be. That’s it. Simple, but by no means always easy.

You’re a part of the Great Circle, and we all need you and your clear energy, just as you need us and our clear energy.

It’s Time. Right NOW.

Helena Summer Medena: Amazing Help and Support

helena

I want to publicly acknowledge how incredible Helena Summer Medena was when I had to spend time in the hospital for surgery. Yes, she is my friend, but she is also a determined ally in the face of stress or hurt.

She sacrificed a huge amount of her time last week to visit me, hold my hand and be my verbal advocate while I was too doped up to know up from down.

The night she brought me in, she stayed with me until I was finally admitted to the hospital at 3 a.m. – even though her ride had long gone and she had to find another to get home!

She also helped me tap (even though I was so sensitive I’d pull my hand away!), and is one of the finest EFT leaders I’ve met.

I want to suggest to you that she would be as good an ally for you in whatever it is you’d like to move through in your quest to live a more healthy, peaceful and abundant life, and that if you want her services, she is well worth way more than her nominal fees.

I asked her what she does when she speaks with a new client, and here is part of her reply:

“We talk a little, I give them 30 minutes of  conditional consult, and then we schedule a minimum 3 sessions.

“Brand new online? I introduce them to skype and see if that would work or phone… tell them about what to expect….

“With all of them I make sure that I am interested in them, that I feel like we are a good match and that we can achieve what they want.

“I tell them all that EFT is not magic, but super powerful… I make sure they feel heard and we go with scheduling.

When she says she “makes sure she is interested,” I can tell you from personal experience that she puts her all into it.

She has no idea I’m doing this, so no, this is not a concerted publicity campaign. She’ll probably cry when she reads this –

Please do consider availing yourself of her considerable love, care and talented intuition and gifts using EFT and other energy modalities. You can check her out, as I’m sure you probably know by now, at LivDelicious.com.

much love and aloha to you,
Angela

The Black Madonna, Carved by Hand from Black Soapstone

BLACK-MADONNA

This is the Black Madonna (and her child) after about 15 carving sessions.

The stone you see with my glasses on top is what this piece looked like at the start. You can see my hammer next to it.

I carve all by hand, using small chisel and files called rifflers. I carve at about 2 or 3 hours at a time, although sometimes I’ll put in a full day. Hard to do as it’s pretty tiring work. Imagine swinging a 2-pound hammer all day – you get tired!

It probably will take me a good 45 to 60 hours total to finish this using just hand tools. If I were using air tools, it’d go monstrously faster, but I like the pace of hand tools.

I raised the hand on our right up so you can now see the child’s belly and the top of her thighs. It looked way too ponderous the way it was before. You actually have more latitude for moving elements around than you’d think, and I push the envelope as far as I can!

I wanted her to look like a mother, not a girl-friend, so I made the chins swing away from each other – this way they are pressing foreheads together, and that’s it. I also took away a lot of that heavy hair on the side.

Now it seems to me to be a double entendre: is it a child imagining being held by her mother? Or is it a mother holding her child? Or maybe it’s a child imagining herself as an adult, or dreaming an angel. I like to think of it as a mother transmitting her innate wisdom to her child. Now you make up your story about it!

Are You Living Your Heart’s Deepest Dreams NOW? No? Why Not?

pots

Way back in November of 1981, after almost 20 years of having been a fine art potter, I decided to take the next step. It was time to make the move from making pots – upon which I drew very detailed designs in black and white – to carving 3-d figures in stone.

I had just been introduced to carving-stone by an old friend, and I was hot to trot. I couldn’t stop thinking or dreaming about it, and I even now had stone in my studio just sitting there begging to be carved.

From everywhere and everyone I heard, “Oh, Angela! You shouldn’t stop making your beautiful pots!” But I just knew it was Right for me.

Although I had been supporting myself and my 2 kids on my pots, and it was really scary to think of selling off my clay, glazes, kilns and all the stuff having to do with creating my pots, on December 25th, I told my kids that I had decided I’d stick with making pots for one more year so I could have a smooth transition into carving stone.

Oops – nevermind that plan!

And at 11:43 am on December 31st, I was slammed not once, but twice in a car wreck that completely totalled my car and left my neck and back so damaged that I was told I’d probably never walk again.

Lying in bed, drowsy from pain pills, I heard…

Lyon-sc-hula-kahiko-gourd-700-sigOne was saying that it was such a shame I’d never walk again, and if I’d never decided to quit making pots I’d still be OK, shame on me, why couldn’t I ever take anyone’s advice.

Another very firmly told the first one to stuff itself in its own dark place, and that it was because I had something to Do that I had to continue carving–even if I had to do it sitting down.

And yet another that told both of them just to be still, please, because the universe is a mutable essence, and if we could all work together, we could heal my body and not only get me walking again but carving and carrying big rocks around as if I was a 20-year old again.

I loved that last voice!

It made me feel so supported and so powerful. From the inside out. And although I was flat on my back and in too much pain to move, I felt as if I had a rocket inside of me that simply had to take off, that wouldn’t allow me to sit and stew or feel sorry for myself or stop seeking assistance in getting back on my feet.

I went to 3 ‘experts’

All of them wore long, grave faces, closed their office doors sooo carefully and quietly, sat down and gazed at me solemnly across their desks. They each spoke in hushed tones, as if I was already one foot under.

By the third one, I was livid. Boiling. I refused to put up with their cemented belief that I’d be crippled for the rest of my life.

I fired all three, went home feeling curiously light, happy, and utterly trusting that someone would show up for me.

Ahhh…Real help!

The very next day, I was introduced quite by chance (right!) to a chiropractor who lived a half a block away! Within 6 weeks he had me walking again, and most of the aches and pains and stiffnesses and knots in my neck and back gone.

Needless to say, I decided to uphold my original choice to move on from pots. The Universe had spoken, and I listened. I’ve been carving stone ever since, going into painting and illustrating on the side.

Walk your dreams

And I’m going to continue to talk my walk, and continue updating you on the techniques, systems and tactics I take and that I hear about and think are great that will help you walk your dreams.

Why is it so important that we do so now, of all times?

Because if we get caught in oh-the-economy-is-bad-woe-is-me-what-am-I-gonna-do BS, we’ll stay there.

Focus

You know as well as I do that we get that upon which we focus. Focus with me and all the other aligned people who are knowingly, trustingly, joyously creating life the way we want to live: conscious, conscious, conscious!

It’s Time–NOW. We have enough information about how to create what we want, we have enough resources and connections to build the world we want, and we have the guts, the minds and the heart. I refuse to even imagine our not doing it.

Look at interruptions and pain and illness and obstacles as messages, not blocks.

Look at them and ask, “where is the energy in this that I could use to create something better–for myself, my loved ones and my world?”

Then ask…

What is the first thing I can do, what is the first step I can take towards something I’d rather have or be or do?

What can I say in my mind that will keep me from the perpetual downward spiral of why-me and oh-I’m-stuck by asking yourself what would I rather see/feel/do/have?

What is my next step on my continued path, holding the space for the Dream?

Why ask these Qs?

Because it’s right here, right now, and all we need to do is let it expand within our hearts and minds and lives.

INSPIRATION

Here are SOME of the most radical, most heart-swelling videos I’ve ever seen.

Here is how one jaded young man woke up and changed his mind and has now helped thousands of people all over the world get clean water.

Not only that, but he has developed an amazing charity structure that allows ALL–yes, 100%–of the monies donated be used for the intended people and purposes.

What IS Success to You? What is Your Soul’s Deepest Desire?

love-selling

What, really, *is* success–to you? And why would you want it? What will you do once you attain success? How will you contribute? With whom will you share your joy, your money, your time, your talents, gifts and skills?

This is what is important, not the just the money. I had a deep breakthrough a few years ago when I read Lynne Twist’s book, The Soul of Money, when I read that she defines money as a vehicle that allows you to fulfill your soul’s deepest desires. My heart flipped into a new position–at last I could contribute and receive money and it was OK!

Wow! That was a far cry from the bland, uninspiring definitions I’d heard before: it’s just ‘an energy exchange,’ ‘a vehicle of commerce,’ ‘neutral energy,’ and so on.

I used to hate selling

I felt ashamed to want money–like it was some spiritually bad thing to have anything to do with. Now I saw that I could acquire it and use it and it was OK–that I could allow it to come and go through my hands so I could contribute *and* feel fulfilled and valuable.

And then someone asked me this:

What if you thought of each dollar as a unit of appreciation? Like every time you get paid for something, someone is saying, ‘thank you, I appreciate what you’ve done for me.’ I love that! So now each time I pay my bills, I’m saying thank you to that company or person for the service rendered.

What is wrong with selling yourself?

If we remember that the root of the word ‘to sell’ means to serve, it looks like a different animal, doesn’t it? The manner of selling is what counts. It isn’t serving to push yourself and your goods on anyone. That will end up–especially in this day and age where everyone down to a one-year old is suspicious of salesmen–in your being pushed away.

Rather, what would happen if you simply shared with people what you love about your work? What results you get with your clients? What they get out of your work? Then you are in integrity, staying in your own space and not intruding on theirs, and they get to choose whether or not what you do resonates with them or is anything they’d like to try out.

If you don’t tell people, they won’t find you!

Because believe me, in this busy world, if people don’t hear about you and your work, two very sad things happen: the people who want and need what you do never hear of you and they miss out receiving the benefits of your gifts, and you miss out on contributing to them and feeling fulfilled because you helped those people. Everyone loses.

We need your services and products.
We need YOU and your gifts and talents.
We need you to prosper so you can continue on your fulfillment journey.
We also need you to prosper as an example for what we can do, too.

I want you to feel fulfilled, humble, proud and excited, rather than bashful, afraid and ashamed of selling and of your desire for money.

Money helps you feel appreciated and supported. What’s wrong with that?

Each dollar is a Unit of Appreciation you give and receive.

Selling is letting people know about your passion and what it does for people in a way they can receive and make an informed choice.

So money and selling seem like different animals now, don’t they?

Does that help? 

It sure would have helped me tremendously to be able to think like that way back when I was still starving! I’d have been able to see myself and my role in life in an entirely different light, and thoughts of ending that life would have never occurred to me–they sure don’t anymore!

I used to picture millionaires as greedy, hand-wringing money-mongers. For some reason that image–like the skinny, black suited Bad Guys in cartoons–stuck with me for years, although I really did know better.

Don’t let that image wreck your relationship with money.

Instead, allow the thought of money as an instrument of fulfillment inspire you to think of your soul’s Deepest Desire. And then go about fulfilling that Desire as a Sacred Mission, step by step.

The Wisdom Book: An Exquisite Work by Andrew Zuckerman

wisdom-bk

A friend turned me on to the book, Wisdom: With Three New Interviews by Andrew Zuckerman

If you have not seen it, you must!

The entire book, from conception to organization, execution, display and presentation, every inch of the refinement and excellence of this work is unparalleled.

Talk about compelling.

It’s an enormous opus presenting the most beautiful photos and interviews of wise people over 70. Every inch of the process is painstakingly thought-out and seamlessly integrated to produce one of the finest books and websites (and documentary on itself!) that I’ve seen in a long time

Andrew Zuckerman is a master of simplicity and elegance.

zuck-bkHe discusses his process and each person, and even how he packed the bags and how they set up the film sets in order to ‘democratize’ the settings for each interviewee.

When I first went to check it out, I had to unglue myself after an hour of fascination, so be aware that it will pull you in–in a most wonderful way.

The Wisdom Book is an exquisitely filmed group of elders sharing their wisdom unabashedly and quixotically and vulnerably. What a breath of fresh air! It’s about time we stopped being so obsessed with our youth culture and remembered to have some respect for our elders!

I think you’ll love it, too. Get it here: Wisdom: With Three New Interviews

Seth Godin’s Book, Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us

Seth Godin Tribes

I just finished reading Seth Godin’s book, Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us

If you haven’t picked it up yet, I’m thinking that you’ll want to if you have any interest at all in how our tolerance for push marketing is now close to zero, and instead we are actively drawn to, seeking and  cultivating more connection, relationships and passion.

He says: “A tribe is a group of people connected to one another, connected to a leader, and connected to an idea….A group needs only two things to be a tribe: a shared interest and a way to communicate….Human beings…need to belong. We want to belong to not just one tribe, it turns out, but to many….Tribes make our lives better. And leading a tribe is the best life of all.”

Connection

He discusses social media (twitter, facebook, etc.) and how there are literally thousands of ways to connect, and how, with just one idea, each of us is a leader. He says, “The market needs you…and your vision and your passion.”

As a staunch proponent of living life with passion, I am so excited to see this book and its celebration of the individual’s potential to co-create a world of more passion and heart-filled creativity.

Sweet Music, Sweet Days in Old-Timey Aloha-Filled Hawaii

kaneohe-bey

I’m remembering how it used to be here in Hawaii before it got so populated. I came to Maui in 1966, and later lived for years on the island of Kauai in the tiny town of Kekaha, which was built up around a sugar plantation.

At times the cane fields would be burnt in preparation for harvesting. The flames would rise up higher than our rooftops, and the smoke and the sweet smell of molasses permeated everything.

(Image is of my painting is Kaneohe Bay, original oil)

HAOLES

My kids and I were the only haoles (white people) in a mostly Filipino settlement. They thought I was weird because, as an artist working for myself, I didn’t work for the plantation – and I thought they were weird for making blood pudding, eating dried, smelly sardines and killing pigs under my window once a month. But after a while the hard edges of our judgements wore off and I was honored that we eventually became an accepted part of that group of really wonderful people.

TALK STORY

We used to gather spontaneously on someone’s back steps near the beach in the afternoon, break out the guitars, ukuleles, beer and sodas and our kids would run around as we talked story and sang Hawaiian songs and gobbled tons of local food.

SWEET, PUNNY MUSIC

Today I found a site with music like we used to sing, and wanted to share it with you because the music gives such a taste of what it felt like then–slow, uncomplicated, sweet, and sometimes very funny.

The Hawaiian language is full of puns–with four, five, even six levels of meaning with every well-thought phrase–so a song about a man’s prowess surfing could be taken many ways! The impromptu hulas we did when we sang them were always a source of hilarity. If you go here you will see a list of sample songs.

The music is acoustic slack-key guitar. The guitar first came to Hawaii in the 19th century with the Mexican cowboys (paniolos), but when they left, no one could figure out how to tune them. They ‘slacked’ the strings, until a single chord was formed in what they call ‘open’ tuning. A whole tradition has grown up around that sound, and these songs are little bitty samples of the feeling of the islands.

I especially love the song Ku`ulei `Awapuhi (Ku’ulei means beloved, awapuhi is the local yellow ginger that grows abundantly in the forests.) because it really sounds like what we used to play those afternoons. You may not like it, but to me it always brings me to my heart and makes me weep. It wasn’t always that way–there are many songs here where the guys sing in falsetto, and when I first heard them I could hardly believe my ears. But now the music is so ingrained in me I hear it and the ocean sweeps through me, the moonlit nights, bird calls and forest sounds fill me and I feel full and content.

The song Pu`uanahulu is a good example of some sweet slack key guitar playing. Pua Sadinia makes me cry every time I hear it, although I know perfectly well it’s a rendition of a haole song….Ka Uluwehi O Ke Kai sounds exactly like the un-mainland-influenced songs in the early 60s.

If you want to hear some really incredible Hawaiian sounds, get any album by Iz, Israel Kamakawiwo`ole (kah MAka veevoh OH-ley), a humble, sweet, talented singer whose heart gave out after a long battle with obesity, whose rendition of ‘Over the Rainbow’ has been played and celebrated world-wide. Here’s my favorite album of his, Alone in the World.

There are other albums there on that site with plenty of examples of the real Hawaiian music. Nowadays it’s permeated with rap and rock, and the older songs with sharp cutting chants and the wavering older people’s voices is fading out. But that’s what happens–music changes to reflect time times and the people living in them.

Look for music from some of the best: Keola and Kapono Beamer, Olomana, Palani Vaughn, Gabby, Cyril and Sonny  Pahinui, Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwo`ole, Sonny Chillingsworth, Peter Moon, Ozzie Kotani, Ledward Kaapana….

What’s Holding You Back from Living Your Deepest Dreams?

out-on-a-limb

Why not go out on a limb? That’s where all the fruit is.
–Will Rogers

In this day and age where it seems that everything hangs in suspense–a new US president, a supposedly failing economy, stocks tanking–why not be outrageous and actually go for your dreams?

What’s holding you back?

What would happen if you actually (gasp!) DID create the dream you have deep in your heart? What if, instead of doing what you think you’re supposed to do, you act from your Deep Heart and step towards your Dream?

OMIGOD–you might be happy! You might achieve success and have more money! You might be able to help even more people than you serve right now! Can you handle it? What will you do with all that money and success and new space? Who will you be? How will you behave? Good questions–might want to ponder on that so you can actually make it come true!

Here’s the important thing

It’s not about “how can I survive” these days at all. Because these days will continue whether you make it or not, and days will continue to go up and down in relative ‘goodness’ and ‘badness’ no matter what you or I or the lampost do.

It’s about keeping your focus
on your inner directive.

That Singular Reason you do what you do, be who you are. Keep your eye on that, keep your heart open and your actions aligned with that.

Do that, always asking yourself, ‘what is one small thing I can do to keep creating my dream?” Even if only taking a little bitty breath is all you can do right now. More space will open for you as you continue to breathe, re-connect, breathe, take action, and so on.

I send you love, support and strength!

How to Reclaim Your Power Even When Things Look too Scary

reclaim-power

We have an unprecedented opportunity right now to quit looking at the “way things are” as being bad, scary or harmful, and discover how to take the energy that is freely floating around and use it to create the kind of world WE want.

Only one place to start

And the only place it can start is with you and me, in our own tiny little lives.

Yes, we are little within the Big Picture, but as we all know, one little tiny life added to another added to another can make a very, very VERY big impact.

Remember John Denver’s song What Can One Man Do? One man, one woman, one child can act according to his or her inner truth, stick to it, be passionate, and stick to it, sing, write, paint, teach, work in alignment with that inner passion, stick to it–imagine if we ALL, each and every one of us–refused to hang out in poor-poor-me, poor-powerless me anymore.

Imagine if we simply went about seeing, feeling, and doing–LIVING–our passionate dreams!

Imagine what our world would transform into really, really quickly–I bet we could create it within only two generations, maybe less.

I’m not kidding when I say it’s up to you and me. I really really mean it.

How do we do it?

Quit thinking of the world as having “gone wrong”

Because what’s happening now is *right* if you remember that we can literally use the energy of what is happening right now to make new choices.

You might be thinking of how you’re going to lose this, that or the other. So what if you do? Any material possession is replaceable.

The correct question: “What will you do next?”

Your time on earth is not replaceable.

Nor is your heart, your life, or your voice – especially if you keep silent and don’t share your joy, love and dreams.

So how do you stay out of fear and reclaim your power?

How do you stay out of worry for yourself, your kids, your home, your finances–and have the strength to carry on and keep focused on your highest dreams?

How do you create your dreams?

1. Create a clear picture/feeling of what you want
2. Intend it and build passion about it
3. Transform your limiting energy into power
4. KNOW that you can create it and have it
5. Take focused steps to create that
6. When you fall away from the dream-path, step back, reassess
7. Correct. And do it again. And again. And again.
6. Make sure you have massive support.

Power! What power do you have?

Are you shuddering when I talk about power? We’re brought up to shun power. Yes! Shun the power OVER, but don’t shun the power of Love.

You need personal power just to exist in the world. To get more of it, you harvest every last shred of so-called “negative” energy in your body, mind, emotions and life and turn it into the power to create.

You’ve got to find and claim your energy

Then transform it into power, and use it.

Once you transform your “negative” energy, you’ll have ten times the amount of impact once you align it with your positive, passionate dreams for creativity and joy.

I invite you to transform your fear, worry, doubt–even the feelings of procrastination and paralysis you’ve been having!

I invite you to get all 5 Wealth Maverick Audios: All 5 Wealth audios

I’m going to show you how to:

Find the pure energy hiding behind your fears, worries and doubts to transform, so you can create the beginnings or expansion of your dream life–a life you can awaken to in awe every day.

Use Power Eyes to keep from being overwhelmed by the world, and keep on track even when it seems everything is conspiring to drag you off.

Take every last one of your limiting beliefs and turn them into dynamic energy for creating something so much better.

Become so non-stoppable, so full of love, joy and inner resources that your life will not only get better but ripple out and affect hundreds of lives all around you–all without extra effort on your part.

You can listen to the recording right on your computer or download it and load it on your iPod or MP3 player.

Start saying YES to life!

If it’s really true that “it’s all energy,” what good does “I’m scared” do you? Well, even that can be good–I’ll show you that, too!

YES–it’s affordbale at 39.00.

YES–you get extra ebook goodies as well-don’t I always give you terrific extra goodies?

YES–I look forward to seeing you create the power to live the life YOU want. The power to stop being afraid, the power to awaken and energize YOUR dreams for full peace, joy, wealth and love.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY:

Hi Angela,

I wanted to say THANK YOU for your words. I have been scrupulously avoiding the news, even while my husband can’t seem to get enough, and still the feeling of panic has threatened to grip me.

Your words and most of all your courageous focus on the Good, as well as your constant generosity remind me of Who I Really Am and help me to keep my focus on what I want.

Sorry – Bill Gates Ain’t Gonna Pay You! – Avoid Being A Scammer

gates

You know those emails (and now facebook posts!) that say if you send on the email you’ll get paid thousands of dollars by Bill Gates? Sorry ’bout that. Scam.

Four things to do

Here are four ways you can keep your friends, family and acquaintances un-spammed and happy with you.

1. Don’t yell

Did you know that WHEN YOU TYPE IN ALL CAPITALS it’s considered yelling? Don’t do that. It’s hard to read, and people will yell at you for doing it.

Refrain from panicked email subject lines like PLEEEEASE READ. Most emails with subject lines like that are blatantly spam.

If you want your email opened and given proper respect, use both Upper and Lower case letters.

2. How to send out mass emails without everyone yelling at you

If you send out notes to a group from your regular email carrier and not from your auto-responder, never, ever, ever, EVER use Cc (carbon copy).

ALWAYS use Bcc (blind carbon copy). If your email carrier doesn’t have Bcc, then don’t send out mass notes from it. Period. Find another way. Sign up for an autoresponder system like 1AutomationWiz.com or a mass emailing system like constantcontact.com of one kind or other.

Why? Because down the line, that note that you Cc’d people, which thenceforth went to more people and then more people–every single one of them with every single email address sitting there like lame ducks waiting to get shot, whose recipients passed it on–one day, a spammer is going to see all those lovely lines of email addresses and use them for his spamming (or hers). It’s called email address spam harvesting.

When you use Cc, you have turned into an indirect spammer. Don’t do it. Use Bcc. Got that? Third….

3. Don’t use scammy subject lines

When you get notes with subject lines like PLEEEEASE READ, and they tell you something like Bill Gates can track every email you send and will pay you ten cents or something ridiculous don’t believe it! He can’t track your emails! Good grief! He wouldn’t want to! NO, sorry, he won’t send you any money! And if he could track your emails, isn’t that just a little bit spooky??? Grow up!

4. Check to see if it’s real

Check with snopes.com every time you get a note like that, and you will find that they are NOT for real.

Save yourself the embarrassment of having to write your list and tell them it wasn’t a real email and that you are embarrassed and won’t ever, ever do it again. Don’t send them out in the first place.

What to do when you get an email with PLEEEEASE READ in the subject line?

Hit delete. BEFORE you read it.

No, it really won’t be anything you might miss.

No, it won’t be anything important your far-away cousin sent you.

No, it has not one good thing about it at all–unless you’re a spammer, in which case it will have hundreds of email addresses innocent ignorant people have allowed to circulate endlessly.

Please, do the rest of us a big favor, and be a savvy emailer, OK? Delete those things as fast as you get them, and help keep those addresses out of harm.

Inspire Me Today: Shining Example of Living Your Dream

gail-goodwin

One of my favorite websites is InspireMeToday.com.

If you are a coach, healer, energy practitioner or therapist, a teacher, speaker, author or artist, or work in some way to inspire and encourage people to live and do their best, I want to invite and encourage YOU to sign up to be a Luminary on the site right away. It’s run by an amazingly dynamic woman named Gail Goodwin.

She’s a shining example of a Daring Dreamer.

She literally awoke one morning with a song in her head. She and her daughter, who is a singer, and who arranged the song for her band to perform, have taken that song–and themselves and the band–across the world to entertain our troops.

The stories she heard about how those guys survive the tough time out in the warzones inspired her so much that she set up InspireMeToday.com so they could have an inspiring story, a video they can watch, and a short and a long MP3 they can listen to on their iPods or MP3 players every day. Anyone can listen to and get inspiration from these stories and inspirational messages.

I was so fortunate to be one of the first Luminaries on her site. I highly encourage you to go to InspireMeToday.com, sign up, create your audios and even a video if you want, and submit them. You get to be a Good Guy and inspire people, and you get free exposure for yourself and your biz. What more could you want?!?

IDareYouRadio.comOh yes–please do tell Gail I sent you–I like her to know I’m still out here rooting for her. Thanks! You’ll find the inspiring interview I did with her here.

Membership Sites: Beware of the Hazards of Free Trials

trial

You’ve probably seen many membership sites and one-month ‘free’ trial on websites. They’re a great idea – but I invite you to please be careful.

Some one-month ‘free’ trials don’t have end-of-trial notifications, and if you’ve forgotten you signed up, it can be a big surprise to get their charge on your card at the end of the trial time.

Here’s what I’ve learned to do:

I’m really choosy now as to what I sign up for! If I do decide to do the trial, I write on a sticky note the site name, my info (username and password), and the date I signed up for the trial membership.

If I have doubts as to whether I’m going to stay, I make a reminder to check with myself by a certain date so I can unsubscribe if I want to before I get charged.

If I know I’m going to stay, I add the site to my list of monthly payments that I make so it won’t be a surprise when my card gets charged.

Another thing.

If it’s a site where you could possibly enter all kinds of info and data, you may not want to put time and data into it so you don’t want to leave when the time the trial month is up.

Just wait! You’ve lived without the site until now–it’s OK to live without it until you make a final decision. Don’t put your data and info on it yet until you’re sure.

I’m talking about shopping cart sites, autoresponder sites, affiliate sites, web 2.0 sites–they know darn well if you start populating all the info fields with your data you’re not likely to leave.

Do your research first.

Avoid entering your email address or any of your personal info before you see if it’s the one you feel best about sticking with on a permanent basis.

If it’s a site where you get a lot for your money, and you feel good about the people who run it, and the integrity and quality of what you get, then don’t hesitate!

p.s. THE RIGHT SIGN: Maybe you’ve seen this video already, but I think it’s lovely. (And it’s a great example of what happens when you have the right marketing message!)
