Living the shift, an insight into consciousness unfolding with Angela Coulter (by Margherita Crystal Lotus)

AngSunsetSmaller-300x286In this episode #78  of Connections Forum we will explore what it means to live in the shift and what effect it has on us.

Anyone alive today is included, as we live on the same planet. There is definitely a new movement of spiritual awakening happening right now, and if you are aware of  these spiritual energies, you might take advantage of them.
So what does all these metaphysical trends imply? Angela use words such as: Spirituality, Ascension, Alchemy and Divine Consciousness. To understand and apply them, we will also have to discover what those words mean for humanity in general.

Join us for this broadcast with our special guest Angela Coulter. Aired on Thu, Jul 30, 10:00 AM – 10:45 AM EDT.

Angela Coulter is an intuitive assisting with spiritual alchemy, providing ascension mentorship, and healing facilitation and instruction. Her focus is helping others clear their path ahead and teaching them how to tap fully into their own Divinity, ultimately helping to change the viewpoint of their experience from one of separation and disempowerment to that of Oneness and full self-empowerment. In doing so, she helps others to understand how to apply the larger spiritual concepts (including those around the “path to ascension”) into day-to-day life… which she calls “living the shift.”

hangoutonconnections.comAngela is the originator of Trinity Energy Progression™ a “next level” practice and healing modality of connecting directly to the full Divine Consciousness (the Oneness) within. She was gifted with remembrance to this practice in 2011, with the understanding that she was to teach others around the world to remember how to do this… to help them advance their spiritual/healing progression, Awakened remembrance, and psychic/intuitive abilities in leaps and bounds, in a way that’s free of any need for rituals and limitations, in a place of infinite possibility and Divinity. The practice now has instructors and practitioners around the United States, has just entered Canada, and will soon be well beyond the North America geographical borders, as well! Beyond Trinity Energy Progression, she is also well practiced in a range of different energetic healing modalities, including Reiki, ThetaHealing, Arcing Radial Light, and crystal healing, and is an ordained interfaith minister of the Order of Melchizedek.  To see an extensive list of qualifications, certifications, and training, see the Practices and Training Page.  Content used with permission.

lmdaDobH (1)In this 76th episode of Connections Forum, we will explore what a Soloprener’s journey is about. It looks so easy to see the successes but to uncover the different steps taken to that success is most often hidden. Come see for yourself if you are a soloprenour wanting more business success. Andera or Dre, is a Visual Strategist & Branding Stylist for Solopreneurs.
This episode airs on Thursday July 16 at 2 pm EST:

About Andrea:

Hey my name’s Dre and I’m a full time visual strategist & designer!  I’m a graduate of the school of life, with a minor in lofty dreams and a major in dysfunctional independence.  I’ve learned most of what I know through an arduous process known as ‘learning the hard way’ (I bet you’re an alumni too, huh?!)I use all of the above to help solopreneurs create a vision for their voice.

“I help them create visual content that conveys their passion, purpose, personality and voice.  I love helping newbies, solopreneurs and small business entrepreneurs at my blog: The Branded Solopreneur, where I deliver content focused on strategies, tips, resources and tools for branding, design and visual marketing mastery.”

I’m all about building relationships, starting meaningful (and entertaining) conversations and connecting with other salt of the earth types that share my love of humor and entrepreneurial ventures. I believe magic can happen over a virtual happy hour (bottoms up!) and I haven’t found a better place than G+ to do just that!

Tough Love Time: These days people have a disjointed sense of why branding and visual marketing is so important, so I feel obliged to set the record straight! Here’s the thing…if your brand is instantly recognizable you won’t need to create all that noise on social media.

Best Advice:

The best advice I can give you to get you started is to 1.) Define your branding guidelines to create a consistency and cohesiveness in your content 2.) tackle one social platform at a time 3.) invest your time in learning the idiosyncrasies of that platform 4.) consistently create and engage in meaningful and valuable conversations AND 5.) personalize your content to that platform.  If you follow this recipe you’ll be amazed at how quick you gain traction!

Let me break it down: 90% of the information our brains process is visual.  Soooo, it’s no surprise that online success REALLY boils down to…a pause. You need to move people in a way that intrigues them enough to want to learn more. You need to be that moment that catches their attention. That “thing” they stop long enough to take notice of. And what is it that’s causing them to pause?

You guessed it, visual content! Circle me and become a member of the Solopreneur Society to get a free copy of ‘A Solopreneur’s Quick & Dirty Guide To Branding’, along with tips on how to create wildly successful visual content and learn how to leverage that content to propel your brand recognition and success online. Your success will thank you for it.

The end result is a list of EXACTLY what you need to do to propel your brand into instantly recognizable status.

HOW CREATING BEAUTY INSIDE OUT can lead to a vibrant, ageless life with Joci James

Joci James

Joci James

In this episode we are learning from Joci James, 88 year old, about leading a vibrant, ageless life.

Because creating beauty is an innate part of her nature, she was led to have a career as a make-up artist and skin care specialist. It all started when she was a skinny, freckled faced kid. She was drawn to making Joci more beautiful. Then as a mature woman becoming a make-up artist and skin care specialist in Beverly Hills, she had the opportunity to study with some of the best European Skin Care Specialist in the U. S. All the while studying self help books and taking every course she could on living a quality life. She began to realize that no matter what we see in the mirror and how beautiful we look on the outside it is never enough until we see the beauty inside ourselves.

Episode #72 of Connections Forum on: Thursday June 18, 2015

Here is her Yoga Video:

That’s when she decided to become a Life Coach, to help people feel the beauty inside of them, which she calls BEAUTY FROM THE INSIDE OUT. Joci James is known as “The Life Strengths Detective.” She leads folks on a treasure hunt in search of their hidden talents and gifts. She has also earned the title of Octogenarian. She is 88 years young. When she is asked how she got to be this coveted age, she replies, “I am like aged wine, the older I get, the better I get.”

With her expertise, she is guiding people to discover, uncover and activate their treasures and to realize their deepest dreams. And to live their life and flourish with gusto. During her long life experience of facing what she believed to be unchangeable challenges, she engaged her resourcefulness, tenacity and creativity to overcome the many roadblocks she encountered and has emerged into a vibrant, strong, informed woman who has dedicated her life to guiding others to seek out and shine their brilliance to light a path for others to shine theirs.

Joci JamesShe says, “As I look back now at the events of how my life path was woven, there were disappointments that I considered a failure at the time but that turned out to be a golden thread that silently guided me to the next adventure with each one elevating me to a higher purpose.”

This finally led her to having her wishes fulfilled. But this slow climb is not she wants for you. This was a process of over 30 years! With the guidance she has planned for you, you will be able to accomplish your wishes in a laser like fashion without all the struggles and floundering around that she experienced.

Around middle age, was when Joci James started examining her purpose in life, she had no life map so she did a lot of stumbling around. Her dreams and desires had always been around beauty.

It all started as a kid of about 6 when she started the first grade. It was during the first Great Depression where lots of folks including her family barely had enough to eat. She lived in an “Oil Boom Town” where there were also a lot of millionaires. Some of the kids were chauffeured to school in limousines and lived in big 2 story houses with white columned porches. That’s when she knew she wasn’t one of the millionaires. Her family lived in a small 4 room (not bedrooms, 4 rooms) house that was painted brown. My, how she hated that house. But it did start a burning desire to make her surroundings as beautiful as she could. She would pour over her aunt’s Better Homes and Gardens magazines, dreaming of the home she would have someday. She was a skinny; red headed freckled faced kid and felt very ugly. Of course her brother didn’t help matters by calling her “red “and “peg-leg” She did not see the humor in it. As soon as she was allowed, she started playing around with make-up to cover up those pesky freckles. These days they are considered cute. One might say she has had a lifetime of being a make-up artist.

Fast-forward 44 years later; she was doing make-up for celebrities in Beverly Hills.

No one would be surprised that another passion of hers is gardening. Those Better Homes and Gardens magazines were the seeds that were planted in her mind that have bloomed and blossomed to a garden that she has today. She lives in a garden home with an interior a garden atrium including a waterfall. Most of the living area overlooks the garden that came to reality from those days pouring over Better Homes Gardens magazines. Her friends have named her home “Harmony House.”

These days the octogenarian Joci James spends her days helping women over 50 to feel their beauty inside and out.

She leads courses and workshops that are called “Power Surge for Women,” to recharge their batteries and learn innovative ways to accomplish whatever choices that the freedom of the second half allows. It is her passion to share some of those with other people who are facing a turning point in their life. Some of her other on line courses and workshops include, “Discovering the Best of You, the 4D’s and “Discovering the Best of Your, Dig Deeper” She wants people to have the opportunity to learn that the quality of their life has a huge impact on the enjoyment of life. And that there is a simple way to do this without it taking 35 years to achieve fulfilment.
Her life has taught her that each of us has a purpose for being here. She says, ‘We are as unique as our fingerprint and we are designed to fulfil our purpose. We must continually strive to discover the best of our selves. With this accomplishment comes peace and comfort.” Her brilliance is using her innate inner strengths and talents to guide you to your treasures and to be a torch that will light your way. This process will uncover your gifts and talents that will equip you with the tools to active your wishes to your realization of your chosen end results. She serves folks that are reaching a time in their life that allows them to have the freedom to explore options that will motivate them to employ their inborn strengths.
Another of her passions is to encourage folks to live their legacy now. By that, she means to understand how important it is to live each day so that when you do reach the end, you can be grateful that you have used up all your inborn gifts, that you have shared them with others and you will not die with your music still inside you, it will be radiating from others. Her mission is to provide a source of guidance for the tools necessary to uncover your unique gifts and serve as your guide to creating a roadmap of simple, doable steps to lead you to your desired goal.
A necessary process for discovering the best version of you is to take a inner strengths assessment to discover, uncover an utilize your best self and to stock of the best of you. It was when she discovered her unique gifts and talents and took action to design a process for others to realize theirs, that she felt her wishes were fulfilled.
Now, when she reviews the journey of her life, her recollection is not of regret and feelings of failure, her satisfaction is knowing that the roadblocks were what strengthened her, made her travels more interesting and even some of the roadblocks led to detours of rich encounters. Encounters that wove that Golden Thread into a road well-travelled led to a vibrant, glowing life.
