#REVERB14 (Day 4): Super-Charged Conduit, acknowledging my super powers in creating communities and sharing passions

#REVERB14 (Day 4) prompt is:
We are all lightning rods, conduits for that which the Universe wants born into this world. What energies did you channel this year?

Present in the middle of my TRUTHINESS, on my journey towards authenticity, I acknowledge myself as a SUPER-CHARGED CONDUIT

During 2014, in addition to creating and sharing numerous visual images with the world through my blog, Coffee With Hallelujah, and on Facebook, I have succeeded in connecting with hundreds of fellow imaginative souls in a variety of communities. 

In some of the communities, I am the originator, administrator or social soul glue that keeps everyone humming. In brief, here are my communities in which I am the SUPER-CHARGED CONDUIT!

My facebook group, The Daily Creative Practice (DCP), gained some 300 members this past year. Now, with more than 800 members, this warm online community supports each others "uniquities" with acknowledgments and encouragement. Join us here.

By the time, 2014 comes to a close, we will have had 4 challenges of 10-days of Continuous Creativity; aFunday Monday Blog Posting, and an Art Therapy Thursday. Many DCPers have become friends. Others have collaborated on creative work, and there has definitely been some cross pollination because of my energy as a SUPER-CHARGED CONDUIT!

In 2015, we hope to have some regional meetings for DCPers to meet one another. I would also like to have some DCP exhibits, either online or in real time and place. Stay tuned and join us!

In March, I served as a coordinator for a 15-day Blogathon for C4 Atlanta,
a dynamic organization connecting "arts entrepreneurs to the people, skills and tools they need to build a successful artistic career in metro Atlanta." In preparation for the blogathon, I was invited to give
a presentation on how to make the artist's daily blog sustainable before the blogathon began. 

Connecting artists worldwide to C4 Atlanta and artists within the Atlanta community to one another was extremely rewarding for me. I'm still having blogging participants compliment me on my role as a SUPER-CHARGED CONDUIT!

During the course of 2014, I was invited to join the board Women's Caucus for Art of Georgia (WCAGA). Pleasantly surprised, I have just started my journey understanding what my role is in this organization of women artists. 

In the meantime, in August when WCAGA had a drawing marathon, "Draw 4 Days," I participated as a "mark maker" and as a blogger and Facebooker. Documenting this public event of artists "demystifying" the artistic process in photos and social media, I once again enacted my role as the SUPER-CHARGED CONDUIT (visit here for an example blog)!

As a SUPER-CHARGED CONDUIT, I continued to develop the presence InterPlay Atlanta through social media. In addition to maintaining the InterPlay Atlanta Facebook group and page that I started in exchange for InterPlay training, I established a blog for our Atlanta group, launching it in February. 

Then in the summer, as a result of my outrageous success in putting InterPlay Atlanta on the map through social media (Jennifer Denning is our regional director and the wise one who "hired" me to promote Atlanta's InterPlay offerings), I was able to barter my considerable skills as a SUPER-CHARGED CONDUIT to the national InterPlay Body Wisdom office for training to became a certified InterPlay leader. 

Oh boy! Oh girl! Have I been having fun celebrating and promoting InterPlay worldwide through social media as it celebrates it 25th year. What a fun and stimulating time it is for me! What a privilege to meet and interact with InterPlayers all over the globe through social media! 

Icing on the cake? InterPlay Atlanta formed its own performance group, the Soulprint Players, and I got to make the logo with input from another InterPlayer. Art is a powerful way to be a SUPER-CHARGED CONDUIT!

In 2014, I named my husband "The Dancing Ichnologist." And this moniker has stuck!

Documenting Tony Martin's many 2014 presentations about his two books, Life Traces of the Georgia Coast and Dinosaurs Without Bones, through photos, blogs, and Facebook pages, I have brought paleontology and--even more importantly--ichnology to numerous people around the world! Yes! Yay for me being the SUPER-CHARGED CONDUIT!

During the months of October and November, I broadcast my passion about everyone pursuing their individual TRUTH in the form of Hallelujah Truth Stickers that proclaimed:


Handing out these stickers to my Atlanta community and mailing them to members of The Daily Creative Practice connected me deeply to others through my own creative process and outreach as the SUPER-CHARGED CONDUIT!

Soulful Journeying to all you out there in the etherspace! May we connect to have coffee celebrating the hallelujahs of our selves. 

SOUL BLOG with me and tell me how we are connected through Hallelujahs!
