    Oh, darling Premakarini. I’m SO grateful for you. I celebrate you and the bright light that shines through your words. I know I’m thankful for my ability to dance in creative expression and see what comes out, for the positive feedback I get from my audience, and for the bonds I share with my loved ones. I’m thankful for life and love and waking up in the morning when there’s a hot new project waiting to be fleshed out, ha ha. This is one amazing manifesto! 😉

  2. Premakarini says:

    OMG girl: just read + commented over on your post today: AWESOME..love what you add, always!! I love that both our posts today are on the same page!! Love it. Did you like what I put about shares? lol..
    Thank you so much for being in my world. You are awesome! Loved our conversation on FB yesterday…you really are so talented + creative, I am truly honored to have you in my life. THANK YOU for shining so much in the world AND not only this for making others, MOI especially, shine! You totally rock!

  3. Otiti says:

    Ha ha, yes I did!! Sharing is caring, LOL. I know, it was so cool that we had the same brainwave :D. Ahh, thank you for the love. I feel so special! You’re welcome, I’m ALWAYS happy to bring out your + my + our shine. 😉 That’s the whole point of walking this planet, no? Here’s to oodles of praise, shine, and celebration!!

  4. Otiti says:

    Yaaay! I’m always happy to spark something new whenever I can, ha ha. 🙂 You’re welcome! I know, right, it was so serendipitous how we rode the same train of thought while we wrote! Oh and I TOTALLY dig what you added about shares. 😀 I’m learning not to stress it anymore, though; those who are moved to contribute will and those who aren’t won’t. It’s as simple as that, really. I’m a lot more at peace since our conversation, phew!

  5. MELISASource says:

    Simply awesome!! Very helpful reminders for those who have difficulties with coming out of their shell (such as myself!) 🙂 ~Thanks so much for sharing!

  6. Christopher says:

    I really enjoyed your post… I’m reminded of a quote and I’ll roughly quote it, “Our greatest fear is not that we are without power. Our greatest fear is that we are more powerful than we ever imagined.”

    After years of being told what box we fit in, it can be difficult to step out and toss the box away forever and just live free and open to all of life’s beauty.

    Love and Light

  7. Premakarini says:

    So happy to hear that our conversation helped you. You are doing amazing with everything that you are doing! I have been learning more recently to enjoy exactly where I am at + seeing this as the only end goal: this has been such a game changer for me..reading this made me think of this xo

  8. Stephanie says:

    I’m shining reading your post! Thanks for all your love and awesomeness 🙂

    The quote from Maya is a great one, about the feelings.

    Let’s get together and feel all right! – Bob Marley

    Hi!

    This is a beautiful sharing! Enjoyed it 🙂

    But I’d like to point out that the quote
    ”Observe the wonders as they occur around you.
    Don’t claim them. Feel the artistry moving through and be silent.”
    is actually by Jalaluddin Rumi instead of Khalil Gibran.

    Cheers,
    Sophie

    Thanks, Sophie! Glad you liked it! Gotta give Rumi credit for this..such an awesome quote.

  1. First off, love your idea playground here, and YES, I wanna play!

    Excellent post here on transparency and it’s importance. MUCH needed in today’s day and age and as I recently posted (http://babacita.com/2011/10/18/revolution/), I think there’s a movement, a revolution, that’s awakening. By stripping yourself down till there’s nothing left but your true self is the transparency you discuss. Your simple, yet powerful statement, “You are free,” hits it. You ARE free to live unchained but need to make the choice to live that way and then be motivated to act.

    Become transparent and get in the game. You won’t be disappointed and you’ll be amazed at what you can do! And then as you put eloquently and clear, “conversations connect.” Love that!! I am a connector and am continually building my value around those connections. Connections with like-minded individuals will blossom creativity, innovation and ideas! That’s where the true power and evolution begins.

    Sorry, I’m a big process/workflow guy…. This your thinking boiled down into the simplest of terms?

    1. Transparency (identify/choice/motivation)
    2. Connections (listen/read/interact)
    3. Evolution (growth, change)
    4. ☺

    All of these make a difference and are equally important. This is one of those posts that is printed and always in my forefront. Powerful stuff, keep the great work flowing!

  2. Premakarini says:

    You know what I love the most about what you are sharing here John? I KNOW You are actively living these ideas also and discovering how powerful they are in your life and, of course, in your Business. You add so much value in the world by living this idea and your impact is growing exponentially. Its so exciting what we are finding out. And this is just the beginning of whats possible! Love your post. Love sharing this adventure with you and watching what is happening! Its so much fun! Thank you ; )

  3. Sandi Amorim says:

    I could write a post about how much I love this post and what you’re opening up! Conversations connect and connection is the key.

    When I reach out and connect from this place of transparency the results always astound me. It’s not about strategizing and working social media, it’s about showing up and starting a conversation as you have.

  5. Sandy says:

    This post completely resonates with me. The very essence is vulnerability a la Brene Brown and her TEDxHouston talk. This basic premise of transparency reverberates thru our entire culture. I like this playground idea. Pull dynamic- a la John Hagel. You have captivated my imagination. Thank you.

  6. Melissa Mesch says:

    Transparency. Here is my transparency and this will probably be more than five minutes. What I have observed and become aware of within my self is that I need to strip off my fear clothes and run naked. I have always had a spontaneous nature and it has been brewing in me for some time with an inner desire to be more practical which has been highly beneficial for me. Plus, I am now aware that my spontaneity and my impulsiveness are aspects to be nourished. I was misusing these elements and now I have found a way to shine my inner light. This inner light is the ultimate core of love.
    I have found this in the last twenty-four hours. To give a quick synopses I will explain the lead-up events. I have been very close with a man for a couple of years now and I had struggled on and off with feelings of jealously. I was extremely hard on my self and tried to be somebody I wasn’t. I was trying to act as if I was tough and free of jealousy and accepting of certain things he would say and certain friends he felt compelled to have in his life. What I have come up was that I was free to express the feeling and the fear and free my self from the judgment of it. That is the first thing that I needed to do for my self. This expression of the truth of my emotional experience was a way that I could forgive my self and begin to move through and attachment to past occurences in this life (and others I am sure).
    I was also very attached to acceptance from others especially him. So one Friday night I decided to courageously express the truth and be more focused on what my learning was versus his response. I moved through this well and began to see something new with in my self.
    A couple months later a feeling came up in me in relation to a female friend of my love’s. She had been a threat to me at one time and I was truly comparing my self to her. I felt ashamed of this. I realized that I do not need to be ashamed of what I am feeling and I can choose to further investigate. When I say investigate I do not mean fixate. I had already been there and I had to move through that as I above mentioned. I had needed space and time to go into my center without outside influence.
    So, now, I felt an inner shift and love came through me. I asked for complete transcendence of the contraction and limitation of jealousy. Just because the woman was not in my life per se or he was not talking to her did not mean I had move through the learning I desired. I knew that I needed an experience to have a complete understanding. So in prayer and meditation I asked to be shown the way of love and of clarity because what I had truly desired all along was clarity in many facets of the relationships, but most significantly, I wanted clarity from my inner self. I knew when I came out of meditation the other day that within the day I would know.
    Well, one thing to the next clarity came. The woman had a tragedy in her life and reached out to my lover for guidance. He is amazing at being pragmatic and laying things out in a simple, spiritual, and whole way. The tragedy that had occured was extremely similar to one I had endured years earlier. In this moment I knew I could choose love over fear and compassion over jealousy. So I reached out to the woman and have opened myself up to a friendship. I admit that I had to move through some of the weeds in my garden but the choice here is for my growth and for and experience beyond the limitations of the past.
    One of the best parts about this is that I am doing this in joy with the added bonus of going to a magnificent Halloween party dressed and a colorful butterfly. Symbolically I will spread my wings as a new creature with a new experience of this life. The trust I have come upon is the trust in me to express my inner light through choice and through my creative butterfly attire. So I have stripped my fear clothes and put on butterfly wings.

  7. Premakarini says:

    Sandi, I couldn’t agree with you more. I love that you share your experience of transparency with us. Its so powerful isn’t it? I feel like we are playing with such potential here that its impossible not to get excited. You are so welcome to guest post on here on this. I think this would be amazing. I would love to hear more about your experiences. Its great to have you here.

  8. Premakarini says:

    I love Brene ‘s work and she was one of the sources of inspiration for my exploring this experience initially a while ago so I am happy that you mentioned her here. She so belongs here! If I may ask, what is it that resonates most? I would love to hear more about this! Thank you for adding to this. So happy you liked it.

  9. Premakarini says:

    Melissa: here is your first blog!! Love that you shared this. It is so powerful to see this after our conversation earlier. I cant wait to hear how this idea opens up your experience even more! I know how fast you grow! Thank you so for sharing here. Talk to you soon!

  10. An incredible conversation here! I too have found by stripping down to only my true, naked, vulnerable self, that it is not only liberating, but I have never been so clear and focused. I have reached an entirely new level of being. The people that come into your life, the opportunities that open up and the radiance that is burning bright is remarkable!

    Remove the masks and barriers and be free!

    What’s the worst that could happen?

  11. Melissa Mesch says:

    Thanks for the comments… The party was magnificent. Another element I have come upon is the attachment to identifying with a limitation. Like, when I am completely free of feelings of jealousy… who am I? How will I identify myself when I free myself from these kinds of attachments? A thought. It may belong on another subject. 🙂

  12. Otiti says:

    Oh my GOD!!! This puts into words what I’ve been trying to articulate to myself for some time now. I love it, just love it. I am excited to be part of the revolution of insight and enlightenment sweeping across like minds all over the globe. Thank you, Premakarini! 😀

    So happy you liked this + it was of some help…thank you for sharing your experience with us. From my experience, my greatest challenges have been my greatest teachers, most definitely. You might like Martha Becks latest book, she talks about this + the tools she shares work. Good to meet you!

  15. At last the movement is moving mountains…I dont say at last from a negative perspective but from a beautifully knowing space and a breath of fresh air to know when I stepped into that zone/paradigm/dimension of transparency it was going to be the one thing which would change the whole world. Transparency is the only thing in my mind which shall determine the continuation of the human species………What an extremely wonderful time to be alive to allow this surging energy to flow through as us catalysts for evolution to manifest into forms, shapes, experiences, wonder, sounds, reality, imagination……on and on and on

    I have enjoyed the posts and am proud to meet you all here in another extension of mind/imagination/thought/idea/transparently beyond words

    Premakarini surely we must sit on the Sofa as our first collaboration as collaboration is the new action and as we know the language of love is action speaks louder than………

    Maybe a skype to skype ASAP on the topic we are both passionate about and which is driving our choices and actions right now

    I love what John said By stripping yourself down till there’s nothing left but your true self is the transparency you discuss. Your simple, yet powerful statement, “You are free,” hits it. You ARE free to live unchained but need to make the choice to live that way and then be motivated to act.

    Transparently yours
    Love
    Simon – often on the Sofa

  16. Premakarini says:

    Simon,
    Its so wonderful to have you here on this post, it really is. We are so honored to have you here. Thank you for all that you are doing in the transparency + evolutionary arena. You truly are a pioneer in this field and we are immensely grateful for the work that you are contributing.
    Yes most definitely I look forward to many transparent collaborations with you + a conversation on the Sofa it is. I am going to be in England in April, so I look forward to getting to know you more + figuring out how I can support what you are doing more: because I am with you on how powerful transparency is. Our experience is making it so obvious, isn’t it? It truly is THE evolutionary tool that I think will make the most difference – it is in my life. My experiences here with this site + my books + all the amazing people I am meeting every day + connecting with through this work: it speaks for itself.
    Yes, lets skype soon and begin this amazing conversation!{I am Premakarini on Skype}
    Love
    Premakarini

  17. Hello Premakarini
    Im with you. Looking forward to connecting, ive added you to skype. Its a powerful time to be alive and to be able to choose to be part of the ripple of transparency. April, how long will you be here, lets make a talk happen on transparency x

  19. This post is so right.

    I used to use a Tweet scheduler, being told I should Tweet at certain times of the day and lots and lots of times a day–but it wasn’t “me” and I was actually surprised when my audience told me they wanted to hear more of “me!”

    I was shocked–why do people care about “me?” Isn’t it about marketing my message?

    But that’s so… wrong. I’m discovering more and more how manufacturing your message just makes it more difficult for people to read you (no pun intended).

    I’m being my canon self on social media now, and it feels GREAT–and people actually seem to like me. It’s nothing like public school… I’m only saying that half tongue-in-cheek, but seriously, being transparent is great.

    Cheers,
    Adriana “Annie”

  1. Otiti says:

    You know, the body really does have a clear language all its own and we’re often far too busy to just listen or feel what it’s trying to tell us. Sometimes she has to scream before getting our attention. Wouldn’t it be great to check in with her so frequently that we become best bods? 😀

  2. Vladimir says:

    I just wander how did they estimate that number of thoughts a day. They invented some thought-counter machine? 🙂

  3. Premakarini says:

    LOL!! Yes, I know, the number does seem suspicious, right?! However, I have heard higher counts of closer to over a 100k. I tend to use the 60K example so as to not scare us too much! lol. I think its based on how many thoughts actually go through your mind {both conscious + subconscious} per minute, that makes some sense. I love to do this one meditation/exercise where you simply count your thoughts for 5 minutes, and then you see how your thought count lowers significantly + you can feel the difference – its great for when you want to slow down.

  4. Premakarini says:

    I know I have learned this lesson the hard way before I finally gave in + realized that I could just love my body the way it is + was feeling instead of trying to coerce it in other ways, lol. So good to read your latest post: got me all fired up for my next post where I will dive into this more + share what I have been learning… Its really interesting that we are on the same page emotionally. I know, too, of many others who are experiencing very similar emotions when it come to love so I am going to put it all into my next Tues post + see what happens!
    Its so wonderful, Otiti, that you are this in tune with your body!
    Thank you for all that you share with everyone here, Its always so insightful + empowering,
    Prema xo

  5. Thank you for using one of my talks in this wonderful post on the transparency and the body…I was only saying yesterday about how repressed our expression is and you can see it in everybody’s body……..we are talking mind body spirit and most people are bypassing the body and it is communicating this to us and we are not listening. Having been a Personal Trainer for many years I learnt so much about the body internally and out and observed people transform through becoming one with their body. As an Actor it’s all about body language, acting taught me to observe people, I love people watching.

    A great exercise for you all to start. Just start observing people, real simple and from their bodies allow the communication to flow. Observe how they move, how they react, what each body you pass is saying. You may not always be right and won’t have the ability to know, unless you spoke to every single person of course (that’s not going to happen) So just observe. The other person is you. We see in others what we don’t see in ourselves.

    Using other beings as the mirror for our own deepening of this wondrous experience is the simplest action we have at our fingertips.

    Words are the least form of communication yet we all use them without thinking. Time to be still and get real and tune into the body.

    What a vessel we have been gifted to walk this planet. Celebrate it, cherish it, love it, caress it, treat it, speak warmly and encourage it.
    You are worth it
    One love
    Simon

  6. I really love this article – I’ve had some interesting body things come up for me, esp when I’m not taking care of myself physically.

    Very timely – thank you!

  7. Premakarini says:

    Simon, you are so welcome! Thank you for creating such powerful conversations + sharing them with everyone. Its amazing how much they stay with you, continuing to provoke interesting ideas + insights even weeks after you hear them, they really are THIS powerful.
    Thank you for sharing this exercise with us. I wanted to play with it for a while before I replied to this so that I could share some words on my experience. It gives you a whole new way to listen more to what others are truly wanting to communicate with you, its so much more direct than the verbal level. Awesome insight.
    I have always seen others as a mirror: thank you for adding another dimension to this!
    Love what you share your insights from your personal trainer perspective: “how people transform through becoming one with their body.” I definitely observed this too when I did specific Body work with my clients.
    Thank you for sharing your wisdom with us. You are awesome! So looking forward to sharing more conversation with you very soon.
    Premakarini

  1. Otiti says:

    Oh, Premakarini. This is simply gorgeous. I’m sitting here with my mind truly boggled because you just NAILED what it’s all about in such a colourful and beautiful way: heartfelt expression. That’s all we’re here to do: voice our souls and express our hearts and let ourselves BE who they want to be.

    It takes great courage to be this open and transparent, and I thank you. The song lyrics are amazing and just so you. I can totally imagine you penning those words and hope I soon have the honour of hearing you sing them.

    I feel like I should say more so you know just how deeply you touched me with this, but I’m gobsmacked and can’t really articulate properly without gibbering, LOL. Thank you so much for this. You are beautiful inside and out and I adore you. Kisses.

  2. Premakarini says:

    Thank you so much. You have inspired me so much ever since I read your blog post Voice your soul. Holy moly: talk about POWERFUL> I am living this and it is such bliss, I dont know what words to use it seems they need to be created…Check out the Venus transit June 5th /6th…I posted it on twitter. Its powerful stuff for what you are helping others to do…Voice their Souls. Girl, you are powerful! Just sayin’
    Love you. there’s more.. Maybe we should connect tomorrow…LOVE you SO!

  3. Gary Catona says:

    Discovering your voice is about discovering who you truly are. When you sing, you must give a part of yourself to your audience. You are looking within and sharing your experiences and emotions with the audience. The only way to truly connect with a song is to live, and to experience new things.
