Women’s March and the Real Revolution 2018…

The Viola Davis (Women’s March speech January 20, 2018 video) is being posted here for NO COMMERCIAL PURPOSES.

Women’s March (design by Artizan) 2018

Witness:

There was a media black-out of the women’s march while it happened unless you were involved.  Sports were the priority of the networks because women marched on the weekend not disrupting business as usual.  The government “shut-down” which didn’t really happen due to waiting for MONDAY was a simple rouse meant to ignore the hundreds of thousands of people marching. They (those who work for the federal government) will all still receive their paychecks and it was pure theatre. The only good thing that came of it was that Trump didn’t get to attend his big one year anniversary where they were going to pay a thousand dollars a plate to be there, some accounts say $10,000.00 conflict of interest or not, on the tax payers dime via Airforce one and secret security required to protect his unworthy butthole.  Still, it’s nice thinking of Donald pouting and huffy in the dress he didn’t get to wear to the Gala.  

So ladies, when ya’ll get out the VOTE... and decide to run for office, think about taking over media as a far larger vision.  We need to control television and films and the internet and stop settling for HIStory.  Real power is all about who is telling (Y)OUR story.  The control of the “image” still predominates and no matter if #metoo has gotten loud and gained ground,  the men in the industry predominantly want women to be sex objects, sex trafficked, victims of harassment and pornography, cattled into matrimony (their wombs controlled/owned) and legally raped, no matter whom the award ceremonies elevate, and even if you get one this year… it doesn’t mean we won.  Don’t settle for tokens.  

Viola Davis invoked Malcolm X for a reason.  So Listen up.

Luvvie Ajayi is a (Girl Power Academy) “professional troublemaker” featured recommendation:

Luvvie Ajayi (author, activist & troublemaker)

Luvvie Ajayi was born in Nigeria; she moved to Chicago, Illinois with her family when she was nine.  

Ajayi began her career in marketing and digital strategy, and started blogging in 2003. Her site AwesomelyLuvvie.com amassed a following, particularly for Ajayi’s recaps of television shows like Scandal.

Ajayi published her first book, I’m Judging You: The Do-Better Manual, with Henry Holt & Co in September 2016; it debuted at number five on the New York Times best-seller list. Ajayi has said the inspiration for the book came after she learned a journalist had plagiarized several paragraphs of her writing—and when confronted, he said he was unaware he should have credited her work.

Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers have acquired I’m Judging You to adapt as a cable comedy series through their company Shondaland and ABC Signature.

In 2016, Ajayi was the first writer invited to speak at the National Museum of African American History and Culture, and her event sold out. (~excerpted bio from wikipdeia)

The Luvvie Ajay (TED TALK video) Published on Jan 2, 2018 is being posted here for educational and NO COMMERCIAL PURPOSES.
Luvvie Ajayi isn’t afraid to speak her mind or to be the one dissenting voice in a crowd, and neither should you. “Your silence serves no one,” says the writer, activist and self-proclaimed professional troublemaker. In this bright, uplifting talk, Ajayi shares three questions to ask yourself if you’re teetering on the edge of speaking up or quieting down — 1. “Did you mean it?” 2. Can you defend it? 3. Did you say it with love? (and if your answer is yes to all three, “let the chips fall.”) and she encourages all of us to get a little more comfortable with being uncomfortable as well as recommending Shea Butter!

Dr Shiva and Sir Edward Goldsmith at Bija Vidyapeeth

In 1982, she founded an independent institute – the Research Foundation for Science, Technology and Ecology in Dehra Dun – dedicated to high quality and independent research to address the most significant ecological and social issues of our times, working in close partnership with local communities and social movements. In 1991 she founded Navdanya, a national movement to protect the diversity and integrity of living resources – especially native seed – and to promote organic farming and fair trade. For last two decades, Navdanya has worked with local communities and organisations, serving more than 500,000 men and women farmers. Navdanya’s efforts have resulted in the conservation of more than 3000 rice varieties from across India, and the organisation has established 60 seed banks in 16 states across the country. In 2004, Dr. Shiva started Bija Vidyapeeth, an international college for sustainable living in Doon Valley in collaboration with Schumacher College, U.K.

Dr. Shiva combines sharp intellectual enquiry with courageous activism, and her work spans teaching at universities worldwide to working with peasants in rural India. Time Magazine identified Dr. Shiva as an environmental ‘hero’ in 2003, and Asia Week has called her one of the five most powerful communicators in Asia. In November 2010, Forbes Magazine identified Dr. Shiva as one of the Seven Most Powerful Women on the Globe.

Dr. Shiva has contributed in fundamental ways to changing the practice and paradigms of agriculture and food. Her books The Violence of the Green Revolution and Monocultures of the Mindpose essential challenges to the dominant paradigm of non-sustainable, industrial agriculture. Through her books Biopiracy, Stolen Harvestand Water Wars, Dr. Shiva has made visible the social, economic and ecological costs of corporate-led globalisation. Dr. Shiva chairs the Commission on the Future of Food set up by the Region of Tuscany in Italy, she is a Board member of the International Forum on Globalisation (IGF), and a member of the Steering Committee of the Indian People’s Campaign Against the WTO.

Dr. Shiva has made significant contributions to the areas of Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) and biodiversity. Through her leadership and commitments, Dr. Shiva and her team at the Research Foundation for Science, Technology and Ecology successfully challenged the biopiracy of Neem, Basmati and Wheat. Besides her activism, she has also served on expert groups of the government on Biodiversity and IPR legislation.

Dr. Shiva has campaigned internationally on issues surrounding biotechnology and genetic engineering. She has helped movements in Africa, Asia, Latin America, Ireland, Switzerland and Austria with their campaigns against genetic engineering. In 2003, when the US initiated a dispute against the EU to remove the bans and moratoria on genetically modified crops and foods, Dr. Shiva launched a global citizens campaign on GMOs in the WTO.

Dr. Shiva’s contributions to gender issues are nationally and internationally recognised. Her book Staying Alive dramatically shifts popular perceptions of Third World women. She founded the gender unit at the International Centre for Mountain Development (ICIMOD) in Kathmandu, and was a founding Board Member of the Women Environment and Development Organization (WEDO). Dr. Shiva has also initiated Diverse Women for Diversity, an international movement of women working for food and agriculture. The movement was launched formally in Bratislava, Slovakia, in May 1998.

Dr. Shiva is on the National Board of Organic Standards of India. Dr Shiva was appointed to the advisory board of the National Controller General of Accounts from 2013 to 2015. She also works with the state governments of Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar and Uttaranchal for the promotion of organic farming. She has been invited by the Planning Commission to be a member of the expert group on environment, the expert group on nutrition, and the expert group on the voluntary sector.

Internationally, Dr. Shiva serves on Prince Charles’s expert group on Sustainable Agriculture and she is a member of President Zapatero’s Scientific Committee in Spain.

Patti Clark (healer & author)

The Girl Power Academy is honored to share the healing work of Patti Clark.  We have selected a favorite meditation, in hopes it inspires ya’ll to investigate her more current posts and recommendations.  

The Patti Clark “This Way Up Workbook” visualization (Week 2 Day3) audio meditation is being posted here for NO COMMERCIAL PURPOSES.

Useful tools from Patti Clark to release and activate your creative potential: 

  1. Identify Negative Messages

Action: We all have them – limiting beliefs that have become embedded in our head. Negative thoughts such as, “I can’t do it!” Or “It’s too hard!” are self-sabotaging.

Practice: Interrupt it! Once you’ve identified those negative messages, shift your focus. Take a deep breath and interrupt your own train of thought . . . and get rid of it!

  1. Reframe the negative with positive statements

Action: Negative self-talk can be replaced by positivity with the help of a series of deliberate affirmations or questions. This creates new neural pathways and frees you from the negative spiral.

Practice: Affirm it! Create positive statements and questions. Affirmations often work, but sometimes questions work better. If your affirmation is, “I can do it. This is easy!” and your brain argues back “No you can’t It’s too hard!” then use a question instead. Something like: “What can I do today to move forward?” Or mix the two in this way: “I am moving forward easily and effortlessly. What can I do today to move forward?”

  1. Embed it! Use Creative Visualization to picture the ideal and embed it in your brain

Action: This next step takes the previous step and solidifies it; it is a powerful process. Creative Visualization is a technique which uses your own power of ‘seeing’ to attain that which you most want or want to change. You already use this technique every day. Unfortunately, we often use it in the negative by imaging all the things we DON’T want.

 Practice: Visualize it!  The key to visualization is to first see what you want, and then create a mindset that you already have it and you believe you deserve it. Relax and be sure you won’t be interrupted. Close your eyes and let the movie of you having your heart’s desire run in your mind. Enjoy the process. The more you do this, the more deeply embedded this vision becomes.
