Wow, this week has been a very intense but overall wonderful time.
Although I’m about to have a really early night I wanted to connect with you and say a heartfelt thank you to those of you who have emailed, posted on here, twitter or Facebook to share how much my Rawkathon interview moved, inspired or motivated you.
I have to admit, last night I watched my interview twice! Once was purely to see how it came out (I couldn’t remember everything I said and having dressed in black on the day of filming, not knowing I was being filmed against a black backdrop I was a little worried I would look like a floating head!!!). The second time was to have, in the nicest possible way, a laugh at myself. All those facial expressions! I knew I was demonstrative but maan! I gather you appreciated my "realness", that helped : )
What I am most thankful for of course is that it really affected people. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I shared some stuff in there that very people knew before. I felt not to share it would be withholding potentially life-affecting information, and it seems to have paid off. Many people have reported watching it two or three times and taking PAGES of notes. I am just so glad that you got to see the “real” me as opposed to words on a page which is how I usually communicate.
I want to publicly thank Kevin Gianni for creating this series. I don’t know the full extent of the work that went into it, but knowing the little that I do, we all have a TON to thank him for. It has been him and him alone who has masterminded and executed this entire project and has gone to extraordinary lengths to pull it off professionally and benevolently. Hail Saint Kevin!! (And much love to wife Annmarie as she is a wonderful woman... and if she had more to do with Rawkathon than I know then apologies Annmarie and huge kudos to you also!)
Post-Rawkathon there’s going to be one big announcement from me. I’ve been hinting about it for weeks, well months actually, but the brevity and complexity of the project has meant three weeks delay – not huge, but enough. Ultimately, though, I now see the timing is PERFECT. The revised launch date for the new project (web site) is imminent – as in, within the next 10 days. It will be the perfect large-scale follow up to the new tidal wave that Rawkathon has started. I couldn't be more excited about this if I tried.
As for me personally, well, tomorrow is the last day of school for Luke for a week. Half-term begins at 3:30pm and 24 hours later he will be winging his way down to Devon with daddy for a week away by the sea. Mummy will be staying “back at the ranch”, my first opportunity to enjoy my new home ALONE since I moved in at the end of July. It’s hard to believe I have been here nearly three months, but every day I am grateful for this wonderful home that supports me and the work I do. As of Saturday I’ll be blissfully appreciating the PEACE as well as the space, and Sunday will be nirvana – a lay in beyond 8am and everything!!
As for plans, well, this weekend I am keeping things very low key, despite the urge to go out and boogie (my reputation as a dancing queen is gathering momentum in certain circles but some secrets are possibly better kept under wraps!), so this weekend I am hugely excited to be creating a new Vision Book. This time I won’t be focussing on business but personal. As I mentioned during Rawkathon, it’s important to keep an eye on your personal “bar chart” (very glamorous!) which means making sure your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual scores are all around the same mark to stay balanced, consistent and happy. Right now while my scores aren’t low, there is some fog around some things. I'm not a great fan of fog unless its fleeting : ) I need some quality time to spread out my thoughts and feelings and “where I’m at with X” on the table and look objectively at each one. This is a time of mass releasing and no mistake (I don’t think I’ve ever felt any emotional detox as deep, ongoing and persistent as this) and I know that the journey I will go on over this weekend will be hugely cleansing and uplifting, and naturally I can’t wait!
For now, I want to share with you (with permission already granted from its author) an email that came in to me a couple of hours ago. I’m sharing it because there may be some of you who haven’t made time to watch Rawkathon for whatever reason and as you know I feel so passionate about what I shared (not a moment was wasted) that I want you to get a feel of how it has been affecting people. With just a few short hours left to go until it is taken offline, unless you have purchased the DVDs or downloads then this will be the last opportunity to see it, I suppose EVER (eek)... Over to Goldie...
I wanted to send an email directly because I felt a need to thank you for your interview on Rawkathon last night. I am new to Raw and have joined several online groups, Give it to me Raw, Rawfu and such and have found a wonderful community of supportive, generous people to help me along on this journey.
I have been listening to the interviews on Rawkathon and have found something valuable in every single one so far. It is an amazing event and I feel really lucky to be able to listen to so many knowledgeable people.
I subscribed to your newsletter early on in my research that led to this path and always watch your videos etc. but last night was something different. I was moved. It just resonated. Strongly, powerful, very zen. I have always heard about people who have an "experience" when listening to speakers and some part of me always thought "okay, they are sheep drinking the kool-aid" (very snooty of me I know) and thought, not something that would ever happen to me, not this girl.
I have listened to it three times already and have forwarded it to my children and friends. It’s true, when you find something that opens a world to you, you want to share it with the people you love.
I have been thinking about everything you said, and I feel a weird sense of peace today. Like, yeah this is it, this is how I feel, and I have found the right path for me.
Saying Thank you doesn't seem like it can convey the depth of my gratitude and the synchronicity (?) I feel, like everything aligned itself and clarity and calm and a path to my true self seemed obvious and simple.
I hope this doesn't seem creepy, because I don't know what I'd think if I got this email, but it comes from a good place.
I wish you much success, peace and luv.
