Moldavite

Moldavite

Last night I couldn't sleep so I held this piece of Moldavite in my hand while contemplating all the thoughts whirring through my head. I had attempted to wrap this piece of tektite previously but was unsuccessful and took it as a sign that it wasn't meant to be. Today I decided to try again as I wondered if it was just that I had not been ready to handle the energy of this piece for more than a few moments at a time.

I wrapped it differently than I have ever wrapped a stone before... something was special about this one. Its not the prettiest wire display but you can see all of the intricate details of the Moldavite surface which is what I'd hoped for.

Last year I always carried a piece of black tektite with me and the stories I could tell since it found me are fascinating. I have the feeling it was getting me ready for carrying this one with me somehow.

I'm going to start the new year with it around my neck and hope for even better stories of synchronicity to tell as we shift into 2018. I'm ready for more adventure, healing and love. Somehow I feel this is going to accelerate my personal evolution if even for nothing else but the fact that I believe its possible a tektite has such powers. Love it.

Selling Books

#Gagbot Quotes and #Prisma App modifications hooping with a selfie stick today.

I think one of my biggest fears is actually selling my books. Once I get them done then I have to get them out there and once they're out there I have to be ready to hold my own regardless of the feedback I'll probably get. I know I can't please everyone and if my first book is a success it's scary to think of how many people might read it.

Then the more people that read it the more there may be people who don't like it. It's a vulnerable feeling to allow such an intimate look into how my mind works with regard to my personal experiences and perceptions. 

Writing this blog seems safe currently because there are only a few people who even read it. It's going to be much harder to write here when I have a bigger audience because there will be more at stake. At the same time it's also good that I'm aware of this fear and ready to face it.

That's why it's funny that this Gagbot quote is what popped up in the Prisma app when I was looking for a picture to go with my blog post for today. There's so many other things I could be working toward selling that don't make me feel so vulnerable and scared. At the same time I know they won't be nearly as beneficial or satisfying to complete which is why I'm willing to put myself on the line.

Part of it's not really even the selling that scares me, it's finding out whether or not I'm even good enough to be a successful writer. I'm coaching myself daily and doing my best to get past this. I know it's risky but sometimes the bigger the risk the better the reward. I just hope this is the case when I'm selling books before things. 

Thanks Gagbots & Prisma for inspiring this introspection!
