As creatives, philosophers, consultants, coaches, mentors, thought leaders, entertainers, artists, rule breakers, disrupters and people who love to push boundaries we are people who love to engage in thought provoking conversations, offering different perspectives to help each other learn, grow, be kinder and more tolerant towards one another as we navigate this world we live in. For some people the world is an easy place, while for others; it’s hell on earth. No matter whether you are rich, poor, black or white, male or female whilst privilege exists and a group of people have more advantages, we all have our prisons and the rules of the games have been set in motion.
The more we learn,
the more we realise how little we know
Our philosophy is: ‘Invest in yourself, you are your most valuable asset.’ To be selfish for a good reason. It’s harder to be a blessing or to help others when you are broke, depressed, homeless, angry or suicidal. Contrary to popular belief you were NOT put on this earth to please others. That is the most difficult demon of all to conquer. Free yourself from this belief and you will be off to a good start.
It is vital to surround yourself with people who both uplift and edify you. Those who are your cheerleaders, those who accept you for who you are, those who allow you to speak freely and allow you the freedom to believe in that which resonates within you. Let go of those who do not see the best in you. Sadly this may include your family. Just because you were born into a family does not mean they are meant to be in every chapter of your life.
It is necessary to steer clear of energy vampires, negative people, narcissists and all those who drain the life out of you – BUT ONLY if they do drain the life out of you! Allow yourself only to be in the company of those who are vibrating in a negative frequency for as long as you can endure or if you are able to sustain being in a positive frequency vibration, the energy of gratitude, love and support, yourself. For the most part, who are we to judge? Remind yourself regularly to take a long hard look at yourself in the mirror and remember that you too have both a good and dark side. That you yourself was once perceived as a narcissist, a bully, a leach or energy vampire. Don’t be so quick to point that finger. Just because you sin differently does not mean you get to judge when someone else does not meet your expectations or belief systems. Ask yourself, “What is your legacy?”
What are you doing today to bring changes to yourself
and to your immediate community and then create a ripple effect?
- What are you learning?
- Are you spending time learning something new to empower yourself?
- Instead of complaining about all the wrongs, what are the little things you can do to make your mom’s life easier, your dad, your sister, your brother, your friends, your colleagues?
- What can you do that will ease their pain and their hardship?
- What can you do to make an impact? Maybe it’s as simple as picking up rubbish on the beach for recycling.
- How can you educate others to make informed decisions?
Demonstrate through your actions, not by your words! You don’t have to be rich or famous to make an impact or to leave a legacy. If you see someone who is trying, who is making the effort, do you offer to help that person? Try and see if you can find more work for them? Can you offer to do something for someone else that would lessen their load? Maybe you could offer accommodation to a staff member to help reduce travelling and transport costs?
What can you do today to make someone else’s life easier? Maybe it’s a plate of food, maybe it is merely listening. Maybe it’s a job or helping someone out by giving them the support they need to be able to create jobs and generate employment. If you are not a visionary then find a way to support the visionaries bring about the changes that are necessary to make our homes and planet a better place in which to live and not just for the children but for all, including the animals and the environment.
However, don’t be someone else’s doormat and allow people to control you or steal your power. You have the choice, you have the power, it is up to you to grab hold of it. Everything begins and ends with you. What story are you writing for your life? What thoughts are you thinking and giving energy to? What frequency are you tuning in to? Is it the frequency of gratitude, love and faith or is it the frequency of fear and lack? You get to decide the outcome, which energy frequency you want to flow in…
Do you have a mindset of illness and dis-ease or a mindset of wellness? Do you have a mindset of lack or a mindset of abundance?
Each time you spend your money at the store, be grateful that you have the money to spend which offers the cashier a job. Be grateful that you are in a position to offer the domestic worker who cleans your house employment and be fair and generous in your remuneration. If you unable offer full time employment, offer something else. Perhaps let them go home early to make up for not being able to offer more days. Be lenient with time off or when they need to go to the doctor. Be grateful for the water coming out of the tap every time you use it and even those expenses that make us mad like a traffic fine, be grateful you have the funds to pay to those who need to maintain our roads. Create a mindset of abundance rather than a lack thereof.
There are situations and events that are not always in our control but we can control ourselves and how we react. We control what we think and give energy to, the thoughts that pop into our minds. We have the power and control to choose what we feed our minds on. What we see, what we hear, what we read and what we see becomes our reality.
It is quite easy to live in a world where you believe what you believe and I believe what I believe. It is possible for every human to have a home and food on the table. It is equally possible to have good hospitals, good education and good service delivery if everything is managed well.
While governments, colonialism and social conditioning all play a role in how our story is told it does not define us, we get to chose the outcome. What story are you telling? What mark are you leaving?
You are what you focus on. Your reality is the seeds you keep watering and give your attention to. It is difficult to love when you focus on anger and hatred. It is difficult to be motivated and well if you focus on disease.
You can change your future, you can determine the outcome by what you give your attention to with your time and with your mind.
We like to believe in solutions and opportunities
Our topics of interest and research are focused on Future trends, technology, social media, online marketing, mind over matter, personal development, quantum physics, health and wellness and life in general the good, the bad and the ugly. We may even believe in some conspiracy theories.
We believe in God, in a consciousness, in a higher being, a power, a creator. We do not believe in a God of doom and gloom. We see feedback as an opportunity to make improvements and we love positive feedback that keeps us motivating us to do better.
We believe in solutions and opportunities but most importantly we choose to believe in a world of love, abundance, prosperity, freedom of speech and the freedom to choose to live life the way you want to live it as long as it does not cause harm to another person.
We love to empower rather than judge
The Bible talks about not judging others. As a child I would often wonder what that meant as I constantly saw people judging others without looking at their own flaws. Then one day a pastor explained, that if you call someone, a liar you are judging, if you call someone a whore, a thief, ugly, you are judging. That made sense to me and from that day I chose not to judge in that manner. This has served me well and so this is part of our ethos. Romany Thresher
Birds of a feather flock together, we are not the flock who can create safe spaces for you as we are likely to upset or offend you at one point or other as we are just as surprised as you are with what comes out of our mouths at times but we constantly reflect and work at improving ourselves. We are a work in progress. We are blunt in our manner. Accept this as part of who we are as we accept you for who you are. If you don’t like it, you can find the puzzle piece location that fits you better. We all have a place in this world.
We do not support the patriarchal system which was designed to oppress both men and women and ethnicities. We stand for women’s equality and equality in general..
We also treat the environment with respect and have a love for animals. When you walk out the door the world is your garden and your reality. What does your garden look like? What are you feeding your earthly garden? What are you giving life to in your reality? Is your garden (lifestyle, mind, work, friends) a garden of chaos, filled with weeds of pain, anger, bitterness, resentment, stress and resistance? Or do you have a sanctuary that is clean and beautiful and easy filled with hope, love, peace, joy, happiness. This is evident in the people you associate yourself with, evident in the relationships you have (how many times have you been divorced) how good are your relationships with friends and the people you care about? Do you fill your mind with things that promote love, ease, happiness and joy or do you fill your mind and environment with violence, greed and anger by what you SEE, HEAR AND FOCUS ON?
What is truth? Just because it is your truth does not mean it is someone else’s truth.Rules for Joining Terms and Conditions Associates Program
