"VOF Week 4: "The next cycle of civilisation and Mother Earth"

My life has always been about helping people. Even when I was a child and another child hurt themselves I would run to them and start playing the nurse role or consoling them. My heart will always go out to another in need. Others may say this compassion/empathy is created from being a victim, whether it is not, most importantly, it is in my heart and who I am.
I am aware of Jesus Christ and have been all my life, even though I am not religous as such, I am spiritual. My life is to serve others and this planet. Frustration and lack of patience are my biggest challenges. I focus on preventative measures rather than band aids although of course there is a place for them. I believe in the power of love energy through prayer and meditation with intent and focus.
My total frustration comes from not being able to be physically everywhere, without danger or not being able to stop the violence or the senseless abuse to women, children and animals. I have felt powerless.
I became aware that there is a way that I can help without having to be physically anywhere. I became aware of the power of mass consciousness.
I speak my truth through any vehicle possible and help people become aware that collectively we can do something and feel empowered through thought, prayer and meditation with intent.
My personal vision for my life, my community and the world are all one of the same, to create awareness. To spread the word to live in the light and focus on the positive rather than live in fear and focusing on the chaos. This is very difficult for some people I am aware and this is why it is so important that the rest of us do it for them.
The end of a 13000 year cycle is upon us which is written in most if not all ancient civilisations teachings and we have entered the next cycle where women will reign in power. Scientists are discovering all of the energetic changes taking place on the planet and the sun. THe Mayans have left many messages about this.
By being a correspondent for World Pulse I can reach many women through this forum and energetically. This will help me fulfil my life purpose of creating awareness and also encourage participation through knowledge and information.
Information and knowledge creates awareness which is empowering. This forum creates the space to reach many women and provide opportunities to learn and grow with the help and support of other women.
I have created forums in my community for local women and women of different cultures and some who are new into the area. The forums were to provide information and create awareness of possibilities and support. Five out of 15 women that attended these forums started their own business within the community. They became empowered and were encouraged and supported in the process of starting a business. This was a direct case of women supporting women through information sharing. It also alleviated feelings of isolation and despair. Information and education are very powerful tools to be shared and can be relatively inexpensive.
I also have a dream of helping youth to create a business idea that supports youth through the support of business mentors. The profits will go back into supporting youth. This can also be achieved for women specifically. I find this empowering for youth and women, they just need to be shown the way.
My attributes have always been my organisational skills along with being a good communicator and connector. My passion to support women and children has always been what drives me. I love to speak and to be an advocate for a cause that I am passionate about.
I have found the opportunity to do this through this forum by speaking my truth, sharing my knowledge and providing information.
In love and light always

VOF Week 4

Hi Jataia,

So nice to meet you on Pulsewire. I'm Genice from Oakland, California, USA and I've been assigned to review your VOF 4th week essay. You write beautifully and gave a most compelling case for being selected as a VOF correspondent. More importantly, you presented a positive vision and a concrete plan for supporting others in realizing their positive visions. You are clearly a teacher and mentor and such a positive spirit. I found your positive perspective very encouraging and refreshing.

On a personal note, I am working on redirect my career to be one of service and to pursue my (seemingly unexpected) passion of economic empowerment projects for the rural poor. While I am based in the US and have been working as a headhunter for high technology companies for the past several years, through Pulsewire, I've connected with a rural community project in Uganda that is seeking to install solar lights and I have recently begun independently trying to get a project going. In the past, I've been stopped once I considered the impracticalities of my vision. At 45 years old, I realize that time is not stopping and if I am ever to achieve my lifelong desire of making an impact globally I need to stay on task.

Your essay is inspiring and appreciate your positive vision and passion for mentoring others.

Keep at it. I look forward to reading more of your essays.


Genice Jacobs

I am honoured and grateful that you are the one that was chosen to review my assignment and I thank you deeply for your comments.
I am sure you will fulfil all of your desires as you have done so already and sound more than capable for the next one.
I love what you are trying to achieve and I must admit it certainly got my interest.
My best friend and business partner is into eco friendly and self sustaining products and systems. She is in Guatamala at the moment doing write ups on Eco Resorts for her book and website.
We make all natural skin care products and are hopefully creating an eco lodge here in Australia. Like yourself I just need to do it and stop procrastinating. I also need her here to help me with it.
If I can help in any way I would love to help.
I look forward to sharing information and conversing with you more Genice.
In love and light always
