This Was The Week That Was

Last week was another hectic week. My grandson, Titus, grew about an inch and I attended three major conferences. Fortunately all three were in the greater Los Angeles area. The first

was Author 101 where I was a guest speaker. I love this conference, that Rick Frishman puts on twice a year, because it honors traditional publishing while always introducing new marketing, new digital platforms and wonderful speakers. This event was held at the LAX Westin and since Dr. Sha was in town we decided to shoot the establishing shots for the television series, which I  co-host, “Soul Healing Miracles with Dr. and Master Sha,” right there in  courtyard adjacent to the hotel. The filming went well and as part of the filming I was given half a dozen blessings by Dr. Sha.  Even though the blessings were just to demonstrate Dr. Sha’s healing style the energy was incredible. I was flying as high as a kite.  I was able to persuade Dr. Sha to offer a blessing to the entire Author 101 audience and many in the audience felt the energy of the transmission and commented to me their gratitude.  I also asked Dr. Sha to do a special blessing for the books the writers in attendance were writing.  It will  fun to see how those projects do.

One of the best speakers at the Author 101 event was Peggy McColl.  Peggy is best known for pioneering email promotions for book authors, but is now an established author in her own right. Peggy spoke with me after her presentation and explained that she was headed down the street to attend Bob Proctor’s “You Were Born to be Rich” seminar and invited Gayle and I to attend.  I represent Bob so it was a real treat to get to spend some time with him and his CEO, Sandy  Gallagher.  It  was also an opportunity for me to meet Bob’s son Brian Proctor for the first time.  We had a delightful dinner during which Peggy and Bob mentioned a book they were interested in co-authoring.  I loved the concept and before dinner was over they decided  I should represent this new project and possibly others.  Will give you the details once I place the book, but can assure you it will be a bestseller.

While with Bob and Sandy I decided they should meet Dr. Sha.  Dr. Sha was super busy but was able to take a couple of hours from his writing, teaching and healing activities to meet with Bob, Brian, and Peggy.  It was a wonderful meeting; Bob and Dr. Sha discovered that they live less than a mile away from each other in the same area of Toronto, Canada.  They have lived this close to each other for at least ten years but probably would never have met had it not been for the serendipity of Bob having his conference just down the street from Author 101, and Dr. Sha being in town for final takes for the PBS television series.

IT’S A BOY!!!

Sunday, October 19th,  at 11:07am Pacific time Titus Jay  Gladstone entered our world at  eight pounds seven ounces. Titus is super cute as you can tell from the pictures. He is also super strong. Titus came out  with  eyes open and ready toTitus take on the world.  Mom Natasha, after thirty hours of labor, was  less sparky but in great shape. Dad Cyrus seemed the most in need of a  nap of the three as he took his birth coaching tasks quite seriously and was up most of the thirty hours with Natasha.

Titus is my first grandchild. Everyone tells you how attached you are going to be to your grandchildren and they are right. Titus and I only had an initial brief conversation with me doing all the talking, but I can already tell we are going to be great friends.  Titus has a really strong chest for a newborn, a strong grip and good control of his legs.  He smiles a lot, opens his eyes to look at you and seems to understand everything you say.  He prefers sleeping to talking but does emit little cries when he is passed from parent to grandparent.  We are limiting visitors for the first couple of days but that is more for the benefit of Cyrus and Natasha than Titus.  Titus doesn’t seem to have a care in the world. Good thing since the world has enough cares already.

It will be interesting to see how Titus contributes to the world.  He clearly has shown up with lots of knowledge, most of which no doubt he will forget as he is programmed to survive human interaction.  You can tell from a newborn that they are totally aware on a higher plane of everything that is happening.  They seem somewhat puzzled by having their small vulnerable human body, but other than that they are blissed out beings.  At least Titus is.

We welcome Titus to our family and our world.  No doubt he will be blogging and participating in all sorts of activities in just a few short years. Until then he can just lay back and relax and let his parents and grandparents spoil him with love.  Every  baby is a miracle baby.  How just two small cells can produce such perfect marvels is beyond comprehension.  We all have an obligation to ensure that the world that Titus and his peers grow into is viable and sustainable.  The really big solutions  will no doubt come from Titus and those being born at this time with great spiritual strength, but in the meantime the rest of us need to do our best to maintain the best of what already exists.  If a new born baby will not inspire us, nothing will.  Let’s continue to be inspired.

Way to go Titus!!!Titus 2

The Week that Was

10/14/2014   |   No Comments »

Today is Columbus Day, a unique holiday that most companies in America ignore.  Waterside focuses on our relationship with the bank and the US postal service so when they take a holiday, so do we. Of course we started this policy more than thirty years ago when it really mattered if the bank and post office were open for our basic operations. Today, in 2014, we could be just as productive with both the bank and the post office closed, but everyone at the main office looks forward to getting the day off so our tradition continues.

Gayle and I just spent the last week driving from Cardiff to Ashland Oregon and back. Along the way we had a wonderful meeting with Michael Beckwith of Agape and then Marilyn Tam and her husband Kevin in Santa Barbara. We had one of the most amazing vegan meals I have ever eaten. I am a real meat lover and rarely have vegan meals, but Marilyn cooked some form of squash that was out of this world. Having an excellent red wine with the meal helped, but I have to confess that the dish itself was enough to convince me—even meat loving me— that I might become a vegetarian someday.

The following morning I had a call with my newest client Pamela Anderson. This was a bit of a coincidence given the vegan meal as Pamela is passionate about her “non-animal” diet and her newest book will focus on that topic among other health tips for maintaining beauty and vitality. Pamela is working with John Pierre who is best known as popular TV host Ellen’s personal trainer. John Pierre is also a nutritional expert and assures me that the sooner I give up meat the better I will feel. I am sure he is correct, but I am just not ready. Pamela’s diet is based primarily on her love and respect for animals, but she is also now working closely with John Pierre who will be a co-author the book. They are focusing on the health benefits of a vegan diet.

After the call with Pamela I had a delightful Santa Barbra brunch with Barbara DeAngelis; we had the most amazing pancakes along with a scintillating conversation. Barbara has just completed the manuscript for “Soul Shifts,” which will be published by Hay House next March. This is going to be a book that will speak to everyone who is ready for true transformation in all aspects of their lives. From Santa Barbara we headed up to Boulder Creek and meetings with Deborah Rozman and “Doc,” the founder of HeartMath. Deborah is the CEO and a remarkable businesswoman. Doc is the visionary behind HeartMath and a unique and extraordinary individual. Doc has campfire meetings that start at 9pm and run until 1am or in the morning. Doc rarely meets with outsiders these days, but Gayle and I have become close friends and regulars. Someday I may write a book based just on the conversations I had with him recently, but until then Doc prefers we keep our campfire chats confidential. Read the rest of this entry »
