Dreamwalker’s Drum Beat Award~Hearts as One!

Sue Dreamwalker Drumbeat Award

   As we step into a brand New Year, I  have created this Award  named Hearts As One~ Dreamwalker’s Drum Beat Award.

The Award opposite is that of my Drum, and upon it are the animals and Birds I painted which are close to my heart.  In the centre I digitally added a butterfly as the symbol of transformation.

The original Drum can be found Here in more detail, And I added the meaning of the totem animals there for your reference. you  see me holding my drum on my Gavatar picture.

So Why have I decided to create this Award.. Well over 2014 I have had the most wonderful compliments and awards given to me which I have to confess I have not passed along.. So many other things seemed to take up my time last year.

There are so so many of you who are deserving of this Dreamwalker’s Drum Beat Award, and it would be near enough impossible to distinguish between you all.So  what I am doing is, all of you who gave me awards in 2014 will be the first to receive my new award and can pass  it along to others..

So to all of you who have been so thoughtful in nominating me for an award I thank you from the bottom and top of my heart and the list of these wonderful bloggers can be found HERE.

So go along and see if your name is there first of all… And so if your name is within the List  you are amongst the first to receive my New Award.  So Congratulations! to you.

Now this award differs in that This is Your award to give to whom ever you wish within my guidelines.. So even if you were not on this list and you know of a deserving blog, Go and tell them they have been awarded the Dreamwalker’s Drumbeat Award Linking them back to the Award Page..

From time to time over this coming New Year I will be awarding more deserving bloggers with this award also..  I dislike rules that often come along with Awards , so My rules for passing along this award to others are simple..

Melting Hearts of Ice..

I hope all of you had a very enjoyable Christmas?

 Each snowflake is unique, so too are we..

Hold your own crystal Lights steady, if you are experiencing a storm in life.. Know as we send and give out our love, we will eventually melt those hearts which are encased in ice.. 

And  that  United ~ We  Are One.. 

Snow Garden

Silently falling stars of light,

Covering colour in blankets of white

Whipped up and spun they form into drifts

Each snowflake unique from heaven a gift

~~

We bemoan the winter with icy blasts

And forget how nature her winter chill casts

As snow falls deep disrupting man’s plans

Nature is chieftain of all of man’s clans

Candles on a sand sculpture are seen during commemorations on the the tenth anniversary of the 2004 tsunami at Patong beach in Phuket province on December 26, 2014. In the morning of December 26, 2004 a 9.3-magnitude earthquake off Indonesia's western coast generated a series of massive waves that killed more than 220,000 people across 14 countries as far apart as Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Somalia.

We forget her might that’s held in the flood

Her power and strength to uproot everything that stood

In tornado’s terror and deadly sting

Nature is indiscriminate –Nature is King

So as I look out the window at soft flakes of snow

Drifting swiftly uniting below

Stopping Man in his tracks as his machines slips and slide

While each flake falls softly to lay side by side

Motorists stranded in snow Sheffield  UK

One Flake on its own soon fades and melts

Yet when joined with others a blizzard is felt

I can’t help but wonder why man feels alone

As he feels himself separate from Natures Zone

~~

If he would but look how nature navigates 

Strength comes in unity, and co-operates

Trees shed their leaves, while berries feed the birds

Animals Hibernate while others grow fur

wallpaper, cute, snow, bird, winter, branch, berries

And after the fury of Nature’s Might

She brings forth Unity as we hold each other tight

She brings us together to rebuild communities torn

As neighbours unite forgetting to scorn.

Ray Baughman hugs his family outside after the storm destroyed his home in Pekin, Il.

So whatever the storm that passes you by

Remember the snowflake unique from on high

Its strength comes in numbers as it sticks together

And so man must learn, as he lives through all weathers

~~

United we stand and divided we fall

Hold love in your hearts and heed its call

For tomorrow the storms may sweep through your life

So stick together, steer clear of Fear’s strife

And remember we are One in that all affects the whole

And our judgments that condemn affect all of our souls

So I bid you Good cheer as you melt hearts of ice

What the world needs now is PEACE…So please be nice.

People Power and Plants..

I asked you in a  post last year How do we put the world to rights? Suggesting we look in the mirror starting with ourselves.. As Spring is urging us to start and plant seeds as those who grow their own vegetables like my Hubby and I, we have  already prepared the ground and the veggie seeds are already germinating.

Below you will see a short TEDx talk from Pam  who is a co- founder of the Incredible Edible Todmorden initiative, which encourages ordinary people to take control of their communities and their surroundings through civic engagement and food.

I urge you to listen to Pam who  6 years on from starting the project informs with her humorous  banter how that transformational journey in her town of Todmorden has progressed..

She shows how through planting and growing food and sharing it with the town, by turning waste land into gardens that produce food which all the town are invited to pick and eat for free.  She has shown  how the Belief in small Actions have snow balled  in a knock on effect in the community..

And it shows how we each of  us can make a difference in creating a better world.. Where we are not relying on the local authorities.. She speaks how it has set in motion a chain of interests which have benefited local farmers, shops and education as children get involved. And how people are sharing their skills with each other.. 

Change Begins with Us.

We are the Change

She speaks of how crime also was reduced and people started to take pride in their environment… And how local police liaised better than ever with their local community.

Enjoy the video and expect to laugh as some of Pam’s expressive language.

As I go and plant some More Seeds !

 

Thank you for reading and viewing..

Petitions Do Help! ~Friday Facts

As some of you may know I support Avaaz and from time to time I have shared a particular petition with you, Its good to know that when we click those petitions we get results…. Below I received an email which I want to share showing how our clicks have helped in various campaigns… and to all those who I know support Avaaz The World in Action, 

A BigThank you too… 

~~

“Dear amazing community,
I often get asked by Avaazers, “what happens after I sign a petition?” And the truth is, a HECK of a lot! Every Avaaz campaign springs from a massive global mandate, and then zeroes in on the best way for our voices to win. Here’s just two of our victories from the last few weeks:
Remember when 2 million of us came together to stop the flogging of a 15-year old rape victim in the Maldives? Her sentence
has been quashed! Here’s what our team did to win:

Maldives ad

Our ads threatened the profits of officials who owned parts of the tourism industry

  1. Spoke for hours with the Maldivian Attorney-General and Ministers and emailed the President at his personal account.
  2. Commissioned opinion polls showing massive support for reforms to protect girls. And wrote an Op-Ed in a major national paper.
  3. Persuaded a top Islamic scholar to speak out against flogging.
  4. Threatened to run an ad (right) in tourism publications, affecting the country’s major industry.
  5. Visited the Maldives and the location where the girl was held, pressing officials directly.

Ahmed Shaheed, former Foreign Minister of the Maldives said “The Avaaz contribution was the spearhead of the campaign to overturn the flogging sentence; a petition signed by millions, a country visit, a public opinion survey, and persistent follow-up all proved irresistible.”

Another example: Remember how almost 2 million of us rallied to stop the Maasai tribe in Tanzania from being kicked off their land for a hunting reserve? Last week, the Prime Minister announced they could stay! The petition provided a powerful basis for what the team did next:

Maasai

  1. Got CNN and the Guardian to visit the Maasai and break the wider story to the world.
  2. Advised Maasai elders on their campaigning strategy.
  3. Flooded Ministers and the President with messages — forcing a debate in cabinet and Parliament.
  4. Ran a hard hitting newspaper ad in an influential paper which publicly shamed the government.
  5. Persuaded diplomats worldwide to raise the issue — embarrassing the government.
  6. Financially supported Maasai elders to travel to the capital where they gathered to ‘occupy’ land outside of the Prime Minister’s office for weeks, refusing to leave until he met them.

Education cheque

Gordon Brown said: "A million dollars has been raised via the brilliant Avaaz.org, in just a few days."

Key Brazilian Senator joins Avaaz "open Brazil Open Votevote" naked protest sending a clear message: "we have nothing to hide"

The victory belongs to the Maasai people, but our community helped them win by making this a global issue the government could no longer ignore. This hopefully ends a 20 year land battle!!
Of course, our community does a LOT more than petitions. Last week, we raised a $1 million challenge grant in a few days to donor governments to put Syrian refugee kids in school. At a
UN meeting, I was able to put a cheque on the table and issue the challenge on behalf of over 40,000 Avaaz donors. UN Education Envoy Gordon Brown, who chaired the meeting, called our community’s effort a "magnificent and impactful intervention" in getting other governments to give!
And often it’s not the Avaaz team but our community that does the direct lobbying. For example in Brazil, we’re inches away from winning a massive fight to end the shady practice of ‘secret voting’ in the Congress. Our huge push helped
win the vote in the lower house and right now, Senators’ telephones are ringing off the hook as Avaaz members across Brazil use our online calling tool to directly tell them to stop this corruption — experts say a win is likely in days!
It’s this unique magic mix between a gigantic and spirited community of citizens able to speak out, donate, and lobby, and a small team of top notch advocates able to take smart, strategic actions at the highest level with democratic legitimacy, that makes our campaigns increasingly unstoppable.
If we keep believing in each other, and growing in size and in commitment, there’s no limit to the good we can do in the world. Thank you so much for the honour and the joy to be part of and serve this community. It’s something truly precious we have here — let’s keep building Avaaz.
With love and appreciation,
Ricken and the team

PS — You might not know that Avaaz is different from just about every other global organization in that we are 100% funded and guided by our community. Every campaign we run is first polled and tested to a random sample (you might think of it as a jury) of our community, that tells us exactly how the whole the community will react. I may be the CEO, but you’re my boss. If you don’t like something (and I don’t mean 51% like it, but 81% like it) then our team go back to the drawing board and come up with a better option for you. We have never, ever, broken this rule. So at the end of the day, it is your wisdom, the collective wisdom of our community, matched with the smartest suggestions the team hears from you and come up with ourselves and from our partners and experts, that determines what we do every single day.
When you add to that the fact that 100% of our funding comes from small online donations (we strictly refuse any donations from corporations, governments, foundations, and even individual donations over 5000 Euros), I think Avaaz may be one of the purest organisational expressions of people-powered change in the world today. Make that an organisation served by a beautiful team of wonderfully talented and deeply committed people that I wish I could introduce you all to, and we’ve got a kind of magic that can build the world we dream of.”

Change is the Air and You are It!

I’m always going on about how our thoughts create. How they can lift our spirits or they can be our worst enemy and bring us to our knees..

This weekend I managed to chill out.. Sunday my Hubby and I packed our ruck sack and drove out to enjoy the scenery and walks in the Derbyshire Peak District.. These are the valleys I walked as a child, where you could walk out with out fear and villages would leave their doors unlocked and everyone in the village would know everyone else. How times have changed!…  

As I  walked the tension of the last week slipped from my shoulders as I breathed in the fresh air and basked in the Sun. We walked passed endless wild flowers in hedgerows and meadows, seeing the blossom on trees and glimpses of nesting birds fetching worms and insects to feed their young.

We passed this wonderful Field full of knee high Buttercups, Here it is with a Horse Chestnut Tree standing proud in the Middle of a sea of yellow Buttercups..

Buttercup Field with Horse-Chestnut Tree

Another View of Buttercups in the meadow

And as I breathed the air into my lungs, I felt it fill me up with energy and it got me thinking. How the Air we all breathe is invisible to all, and yet as I looked up I saw the clouds drifting across the sky as the grass swayed in the fields. The birds and the insects and many butterflies I saw all using this same invisible Air all travelling, all busy creating new life to carry on their species..

Headstone Tunnel at Monsal DaleInside the Tunnel

We walked along a disused train track, that is now a cycle path.. A few years ago the  HeadstoneTunnel of this track was re-opened and I think it took us around 5 minutes to walk through its length around a long curve of 490 metres until we saw the light at the other end.  As we entered it was cold and damp, but there are lights installed in the ceiling and although very dark you can see your way… Children on bikes rang their bells and turned on their lamps and screamed and shouted to one another and their parents joined in the fun, as the echo of the Tunnel amplified their voices as they rode through the tunnels length…

It made me think again how Air is the element of communication.. How when we speak it travels, Our voices can be a mere whisper, or we can bellow… Like the Wind it can be but a breeze or a Tornado ..  Our words have power and we can use them to comfort or  to chastise, we can use them to Heal or to Wound.. and I know how often words can cut sharper than any knife, or soothe  like balm…

Air is also the element through which our thoughts travel, Our thoughts in construction travel out like radio waves into the ether using the element of Air to travel.  Our thoughts are Energy,We may not see them, but then neither do we see the Air, but its there!… Invisible just the same..

How many thoughts do we think in a day?. 

Are They Positive or Negative? 

We Can send out a prayer for someone as  we send out healing, and often we send out our compassion through our emotional thoughts. So too can we pick up on others thoughts, we often instinctively know when some one is feeling down.. Or happy, for the energy they emit travels through the air as we pick up those feelings . Some go one stage further using Telepathy or clairvoyance which are deeper levels of this ability which we all have, but have forgotten how to use.

While I was walking along I was thinking how wonderful this Planet is and how Nature no matter what the elements throw at it, It still thrives to bloom and grow to the best it can be…

Here are some wonderful views of Wild flowers and just look at those dandelions which are thriving high up on the Rock ledges..

Dandelions growing in rock face

Wild Flower Mixture

Our thoughts can create harmony or they can be destructive and even bring illness upon ourselves.. What ever we give out comes back.. Such is the nature of creation in its circular cycles.

Air is always in motion.. Air swirls and eddies and whirls back on itself.. It moves things along.. It whips things up, creating Change..

My blogging community  has become a global family, we communicate through technology, we are no longer isolated we are in instant contact across vast distances..

Never before have the events around our world been transmitted via satellite into our homes via the media and TV so quickly.  And in an instant our thoughts are affected with the emotions we are giving out with what we are witnessing as we think! and thus send back out into the ether either positive or negative thoughts! 

The Nature of our Communication with our global family is crucial for a healthy planet.  We are seeing Old patterns of living altering.. We are witnessing the breaking Free.. We need to move beyond Fear and we need to open up our thoughts in non-judgemental ways as we each of us take responsibility not only for our Actions..  We each need to understand the importance of the Power of Thoughts and how collectively they need to break free of old doctrines and embrace Unity and Harmony, that all are equal. And its time that this divide of Rich and Poor be addressed. 

We may not realise the power we all possess , but others do. and so our minds are constantly bombarded with Fear from those communication devices.. Learning how to meditate within our quiet places , going out within Nature and finding our own inner balance within ourselves, we are able to direct out thoughts and intentions. It may not seem a lot.. But our Thoughts DO make a huge difference to the Collective Consciousness.

The more we communicate from our hearts then the more others will want to do the same.. Sending healing love out into the world…

We too can use this Great Communication Tool.. And spread out our thoughts to create a more harmonious Caring World..

So when next you send out your voice into the Ether, Remember it is energy and remember it travels out into the air..

Remember also what we think is also sent out into the Ether. 

Change is in the Air

Let it begin with You!

Blessings ~Sue
