ZippedME: Rockin It! – By Jody

 

How many of you are using social media? If you are not using social media….why not? If you are using social media do you feel like a fish in a barrel? The hope of utilizing social media is to connect with new and existing consumers and by making your product or service more visible.
The first thing I realized about social media is that you have to build momentum and the results don’t happen as consistently as we would hope. Therefore, by focusing and implementing these five items you will not only be a social media guru but your success with social media will be proven by increased visualization and increased profits.

Going Bananas… Frozen Bananas! – by David Franklin Farkas

Going Bananas…
.
I drink nutritional shakes almost every day.
I drink them partly for the ridiculously high level of nutrition I can cram into that 16oz container. But, I also they are a medium to allow me to ingest the fresh turmeric and ginger that keep my joints happy. Turmeric is good for everything… look it up! Really!

What in the World? – by David Franklin Farkas

.
What in the World?
.
I do spiritual / psychic / shamanic  healing.
Hard to give it a name. But, I have become very sensitive to many things, which is what I need to be to do the work. One of the things that affects me are the phases of the Moon and other celestial events. And, solar flares.
.
At it’s worst, it can be like sudden onset fibromyalgia… joint pain, weariness and brain fog. It makes it hard to do anything, much less my work.

Feel and Become – by Kristine Grün

.

This months dual theme Feel/Become made me think of a very true statement: ‘Not until we are lost, do we begin to find ourselves’.
.
Being consiously ‘Lost’ is a feeling. We have to feel to begin to find ourselves. Tragicly this makes sense to me!
.
Do we have to be broken to build ourselves up again, by realistic measures, which we are now able to see? We have to be lost enough to bother..

The Courage to Be You – by Linda Lang

Too often we hide ourselves away, trying to fit in or be something we’re not. Most of us spend years in that illusion until we wake up and find the courage to realize our authentic self. Sadly, some never heed the soul’s call.

ANI-SMILES – The : )’s Have It! – by Michelle

 

 

Have you ever noticed some animals seem to be smiling? Ani-Smiles are contagious—unless of course the onlooker is in an intensely pernicious snit, or an otherwise deeply dark disposition–otherwise smiles bounce blithely from one face to another. Smiles are akin to laughter that way, evoking a lighthearted response in all but the most sullen of people. And sometimes perhaps even them.

A new pathway to “Become” – by Kc

The word “Become” sounds like a finalization, for example “he has become an engineer”. Which to me is not something that I as a human being feel I have reached. Development changes over time, and becomes different with experiences dependent on the person involved.
I have realised throughout my time and journey that to become is never a definitive for me. I started out as someone’s baby, a part of a family to then become the head of my own family unit. To see my own daughter become a new link in the family chain when she became a mother.

How Do You Feel Around Certain People? – by Diana

 

Have you ever had the feeling of being “run over by a truck” after the friend you spent time with has left? When you don’t have strong boundaries and leak out your energy to another, they feel energized and you feel like it is time for a nap .You are allowing this. Most people do not take responsibility for their part (it is All your part) and blame the other person. “She is an energy vampire” or “I don’t want to be around negative people.”

Become – By Jonathan Ojanpera

 

If I could invent myself over and over again, I might become.
.
If there was a way to escape the routine of life, its mundane, the ritual, I may become.
.
To set aside the norm and break through the barrier that keeps me earth bound, I could become.
.
When I let go of my mind’s whispers of untruth, I am becoming.
.
Now there is nothing here but my essence, I have become. I am a blank page longing to be filled with the magic of what I may become.

The Gift of Cancer – A Life Changing Book – by Annette

 

More than likely every life on this planet has been touched by cancer at some point.  Perhaps a family member, a neighbor, your former teacher or even your beloved family pet received the diagnosis. Imagine now that YOU yourself were to hear those words spoken to you about YOU.  How would you react?  What would you do in such a case? Well I know how one young lady handled it, she used her diagnosis to turn her life around and in the process was completely healed AND used the process she went through to write a book to help others. Wendy Treynor. Ph. D. wrote The Gift of Cancer – A Life Changing Book – because that is how she saw it and that is what happened.

The Story Reading Ape, An Author Promotion Enterprise

It’s a jungle out there if you are an Indie Author!  At least this is how it seems for many who attempt to make their mark in world of writing, publishing and promoting books. There is so much to learn not only about what to publish, but where, how and with whom. Are there others out there going through the forests same as you? Is there anyone around who can help you feel a bit more secure and less alone? Might someone be able to help you avoid the pitfalls and traps? There are snakes in much of that tall grass so the more you know, the more likely you are to learn how to swing from tree to tree without leaving yourself to die on the vine.  It would be divine to have a guide, someone who knows the ropes or at least where to find one that can hold you…  Heck, even Tarzan and Clint Eastwood partnered with primates and look what it did for their lives!  Writers, be of good cheer, for The Story Reading Ape (TSRA) is at your service.

Who I am is not who you See – by Kc

 

I know that growing up as a child that I believed what I saw, and then did not try to look at others in a different way. I had no idea that there was another way to look at someone. I guess it was like reading a book from page to page until the cover was closed. I was not a read between the lines kind of girl. I always looked at life from my own perspective, without even contemplating the idea that the person in question had their own idea of what they looked like to the world.
I was trapped inside my own little world, like most of us are. It is not a criticism towards anyone as we are only human beings after all. Or souls trapped in human shells. I still get caught up in my own view point every now and then. I guess we all have to learn who we are for ourselves and not what others think. Perhaps then it will allow us to share our perspectives more clearly with the other souls that roam this world.
We perceive a person in our eyes, but is that who they really are? Can we really tell a person by just looking at them? Or is it a different perspective to their own vision of who they are?
It is funny what we don’t think of, unless life guides us to question what is really in front of us. I found that the universe had that reminder lesson in mind for me. Whilst having a conversation with a long lost relative I found that I was not the only one who felt the way he felt. That people do not really know each other.
With this in mind I came up with the poem below, which I hope you enjoy. If you do comment and like and share.
