Bringing about a global mindshift

Twice now I've participated in hosted/facilitated on-line Conversations about topics related to bringing about a global mindshift. Global Mindshift's mission is to help make the emergence of global community unstoppable. (Check out the site at

One 4-week conversation addressed "The Cycle of Emergence" and how we might apply an evolutionary model of growth to examine how a system evolves to higher levels of consciousness and cooperation and apply it to the continued evolution of the human community. The second 4-week conversation dealt with the "Five Most Important Questions Facing Humanity," from identifying them to beginning to look at how to address them and find solutions. There will be a follow-up conversation about that in March.

There were common issues in each conversation:

1) People use the same terms in different ways and thus misunderstood each other
2) Some people posted a lot while others posted very little or not at all, and so felt they weren't contributing

I had a couple of ideas for how to address these issues, based on my talks with Eric Hoffer and Tim Gill.

One idea is to look at social network analysis (SNA), one of the things businesses are using, along with value network analysis (VNA). Some of these tools can be good for looking at how we create community, creating more value from the whole (the whole is more than the sum of its parts...). It could allow people who don't participate a whole lot in the actual conversations to still contribute something - an opinion, a resource, an intention - to making the whole greater than its parts. We need everyone to participate to the best of their ability if we are intent on moving toward the tipping point ("the event of a previously rare phenomenon becoming rapidly and dramatically more common" per Wikipedia) and making a global mindshift through creating a critical mass - a short cut to cultural transformation.

On this point, looks like a very interesting site! A British science writer, Philip Ball wrote about the history of the concept of critical mass. The usual story told about critical mass is of the "Hundredth Monkey" - this site tells more about the tale's veracity and applicability today. Biologist Rupert Sheldrake has more to say about "morphic fields and morphic resonance, which leads to a vision of a living, developing universe with its own inherent memory" (see

To help us get to what we want, including to the meaning we intend, the Semantic Web or Web 3.0 is a rapidly emerging tool. Semantic web concepts really address the issue of mixed up terminology head-on. Wikipedia defines it as "a vision of information that is understandable by computers, so that they can perform more of the tedious work involved in finding, sharing and combining information on the web." semantic web The real geniuses behind semantic web are at It is really a web of data with many interrelations. Using artificial intelligence (AI), we can use the semantic web to infer intention and meaning. In fact, elements of AI are already are being used. For example, google asks "do you mean xyz?" when you do a search with incomplete information or incorrect spelling.

Obviously, there is a lot more going on that I don't know about yet. I just want to help tie things together, to help us move closer toward a world of equity, abundance, peace and joy.

I'm changing my life and it's so exciting!

"Give me five minutes and I can predict your financial future for the rest of your life!...You can have all the knowledge and skills in the world, but if your "blueprint" isn't set for success, you're financially doomed."
--T. Harv Eker

I was introduced to T. Harv Eker through a wonderful teleseminar series "Profit Purpose and Beyond" put together by Sarah Robinson. Harv was Sarah's first guest, and he blew me away with his generosity and common sense.

Immediately, I bought Harv's bestselling book, Secrets of the Millionaire Mind™. Since then, I've learned that Harv is one of the world's top trainers, who focuses on teaching others the tools he used to become wealthy in all aspects of life.

The book is a quick yet profound read, for Harv lays out 17 specific ways that rich people think and act differently from poor and middle-class people. And he talks about our "money blueprint" - the unconscious patterning we have around money that determines whether we will become financially free or not.

Right now you're probably trying to figure out whether your own blueprint is set for wealth, moderate success or poverty. The answer is simple! Look at your results in the real world: your income, assets and net worth. Your results reflect your inner blueprint.

Well, my results are modest at best. So I was intrigued, and eager to examine my own "money blueprint." I had lots of conscious thoughts about money - mainly that it's not possible to live a mission-centered life and have money. Yet from my non-profit fundraising work, I know how much good money does. And I do like to be well-fed, well-housed, well-clothed, and well able to help my family and charities. So how was I unconsciously sabotaging my efforts to be financially free?

To find out, I attended an event hosted by Harv’s company, Peak Potentials Training, the Millionaire Mind Intensive. Because I bought Harv's book, I went free, and so did my brother. They promised change on a "cellular level" and that's exactly what happened to me. It was a phenomenal, FUN experience.

What I learned is that money itself is not the problem, my attitudes are! In fact, as a smart, capable woman, I have an obligation to increase my financial wealth so I can help others more.

Since attending the seminar, I have been given access to a recording of a 60 minute Teleseminar Harv hosted where he describes his foolproof methods for financial success. I’m sending you the link because the seminar really worked for me and I’d like to see you benefit too.

Millionaire Mind Teleseminar

Simply put, Harv teaches people how to master the "inner game" of wealth in order to create outward success. You can't build a mansion from a bungalow blueprint. In fact, the only way to become the architect of your new financial destiny is by revising your own internal blueprint and setting it for automatic success.

Harv seems to have a personal mission to help people realize their full potential by applying the principles he struggled to learn the hard way. These principles got him from debt to millionaire in only two and-a-half years, so I figure if he can do it, so can I. If you can grasp even a few of the principles of success he outlines, you, too, can achieve financial freedom.

One of the things I learned from the seminar was that the most powerful truths are simple and indestructible; you can use them to create a foundation upon which to build your own "rich life," no matter how much or how little success you have experienced up until now. And a "rich life" is about more than just money.

For the first time in many years, I'm excited about something. I've signed up for more courses from Peak Potentials, and am thrilled to be on a journey to learning more about myself and how to create the happiness and abundance for which I've always yearned. Really, I'm learning how to transform my life from the inside out.

Wonderful Web Women

I just came across an exciting new site that every woman who wants to make an income from the internet should know about. Wonderful Web Women is a must see if you want to learn from the most successful women on-line and become a Wonderful Web Woman yourself.

Have you ever searched on the internet for “gurus” to learn from? People who have been there and done that and are willing to share what they have learned with you? Well if you have, you have probably noticed that most of them have one thing in common – most of them are men!

Well that’s about to change. One women has been on a mission to find the most successful women on the internet and share their stories and knowledge with you. And she has succeeded!

Let’s face it. Women DO do things differently to men. It is easier to learn from someone who you can relate to. Someone very much like you who has tried, failed, tried again and succeeded.

The best part, these Wonderful Web Women are so passionate about helping other women succeed that they are willing to share their knowledge with you for free.

To see what I mean, go over to Wonderful Web Women and see for yourself. I’ve joined this community of dynamic women and I think you should too. Who knows, maybe soon you’ll be one of the featured Wonderful Web Women too?

Join me and a community of successful Internet women at Wonderful Web Women. You may become the next Wonderful Web Woman.

I’ll see you there.
