I love writing & have written a book called 'The Genius Game' (one of 10 books currently published). I love empowering people to unleash their brilliance into the world. Discover more about me at https://www.soleiragreen.com/
I was overjoyed, and I mean over the moon flooded with joy, when Caroline Jane messaged me out of the blue to invite me to write a column for the Vocal Social Society magazine. Yippee, how exciting is that.
Love conquers all
“Tell me a story Daddy, pllllease. A good one. Not one of your normal ones. A special story.” “OK Brianna”, said Dad with a dull look in his eyes. Oh no I thought, here we go again.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. I was born ordinary. Really! Really really ordinary, like if I'd have wanted it, no one would have ever known my name or that I ever existed. I could have played it like that you know. I could have chosen to stay ordinary and hidden in the guise of a regular person pursuing a regular life. But I didn't. You know why? Because some trip lever was triggered in me somewhere back about 35 years ago.
Me & my dreaming (sung to the tune of 'Me & My Shadow)
Earlier this year Facebook kept putting in front of me an ad for Omaze, an opportunity to win a £3M home in Devon, UK. "Your dream home!", shouted the magic fairy that sits on my shoulder cheering me onwards in life. So ... because one ignores their shoulder fairy at their peril and despite not being a gambler in any way shape or form ... on line I went to press pay on the £25 entry fee. WHAT! I have never ever done anything like that before. But you know, the moment I did it I felt abundant in ways I hadn't before. As if, whether I won the house or not, I had broken through some kind of barrier around money.
In my earlier years of life I yearned to be a writer, but was certain that I was not, despite the fact that Miss Kingston (my grade 3 teacher) most definitely thought I was great at it. But even this empowerment from an adult at a very young age made no difference to me. Every word I wrote was smothered in my judgement of its lack of brilliance.
PROLOGUE I barely remember being plucked from cosmic ooze and given the breath of Life. I can hardly recall all the adventures in between then and now, the times of being trained by the truly great ones, the games in the god realms readying me for a cause. I know that I forgot all of it for a very long time and knowing that now brings a sort of sadness to me that we could forget such wonder, such bliss, such power. But there I was, cast upon the winds of forgetting to wander aimlessly through the miasma of realities until one day the universe would bop me on the head and remind me of the WHY of me. Remind me of the seed that dwelt inside me, inside us all, just waiting to pour its glory forth onto the world. It was then that I gave up the journey of knowing myself and surrendered every bit of myself to becoming the Infinite in its most incredible new version of itself. I imbued myself with the power and turned from a ‘me’ into a newly formed universe of wonder and creation. I became the Infinite rebirthing itself anew throughout this universe and then joined forces with all the others doing the same here in this part of this galaxy. This is that story, that journey, that brilliant meandering into becoming infinite!
Confession: I am an apocaloptimist
Confession: I am an apocaloptimst. I saw a post on Facebook using this brand new word and I thought oh yes, that perfectly describes me. I watch all manner of zombie & world-coming-to-an-end movies. Why? Because I love to see how script writers remake communities and societies in the face of devastating circumstances. I’ve always been fascinated by ways to redesign the world to be ever more awesome. In fact, I call myself a future innovator (betcha never heard that one before!).
Who Am I?
Who am I? Well, I gave up being human a while back you see. I decided it was just too limiting for my adventuresome being. Now I'm not saying I don't like it here. Far from it. I absolutely LOVE being alive on this glorious planet Earth. I can't imagine anywhere else I would want to be right now.
