Shared Visions

A roadmap from Futurist Barbara Marx Hubbard

Posted by Gina Lazenby on Feminine Leadership

A small group of women had gathered to listen to Barbara Marx Hubbard, considered the original futurist and a woman who has written many books about conscious evolution. We were brought together on Friday, June 24 by Mirella Sula of Global Woman Magazine. The kind of women who showed up were all passionate about aligning their business interests with their deep commitment to creating change in the world. Barbara Marx Hubbard is definitely a poster girl for understanding how to ride waves of change, and at age 86 she been a leader in this field for over half a century.

I travelled down to the gathering from the north of England especially to meet Barbara. What started out as an interesting and exciting encounter became something a little more urgent as we were all trying to grapple with the surprising news about Brexit … the UK’s unexpected departure from the EU was just announced a couple of hours before we met. Barbara was a perfect mentor for putting all this real and potential chaos into perspective. Barbara was with us for just over an hour and half of that time was for questions. I was very keen to have time for an interview so when I heard that she was leaving immediately for the House of Lords, I asked to join her and ended up doing my video and audio interview in the back of a London taxi cab .. as you do !!

Here is the interview to watch. It’s very insightful and couldn’t be more perfect in its timing to begin to give us a roadmap. We are used to living in uncertain times but the political structures that we have become accustomed to, and we know no longer serve us, are actually dismantling hour by hour. There really is no map for what is ahead and it is crying out for a new kind of leadership, something we have not seen before but have to do envision afresh. I have also Transcript BMH Interview so that you can read it here … there is much to digest.

I am a teacher and counselor (Essence!), so I would love to form groups (pods?) in the area of Central Illinois where I live that will also embrace the human evolutionary story.

First steps on fulfilling my vision:
My church (U. U.) has lay presenters during the summer, so I am volunteering to speak of the evolution of the human during an August service.
Also, though I now live outside of Peoria in a retirement village, I am presently looking to move to a condo in the city in order to be more available when needed.  Scary!!!  Age 81!!!

My vision is to create and share inspired imagery through paintings that will raise the vibration of the environment as well as invoke a sense of remembrance in people.  My highly charged paintings are infused with spiritual insights that uplift, heal, inspire and create a profound feeling of peace and connection to beauty in the viewer.

First steps on fulfilling my vision:
Continue to dedicate my time, resources, body, mind and energy to create and share my artwork with my world in a big way.

my vision is to tackle all the things I care about by starting with the source of life. Women! if you can help a young girl to realize her self worth touch base with her innate values, spark her passion and vision for her future and give her the confidence and community to take that out into the world then. you've created an aware individual who can't help but keep growing and learning and sharing! and when she does bring another human into the world she do a much better job raising her children in the light.

First steps on fulfilling my vision:
I'm taking these steps every day by dedicating all of my time to my nonprofit Global sorority. we travel around the globe delivering from the inside out leadership education to groups of young women and then we support them to create a community project as a team. it's transformative and is in direct alignment for my vision of a better world starting with girls.

I believe in the truth of the Law of Attraction. I also believe that  -deep inside- all religions talk about this GREAT POWER that us humans have, to materialize our thoughts and feelings in the real world. I want to create a book or a film that will collect spiritual leaders and analyzers from most known religions – and prove this information. I want to help with this idea people to OPEN their eyes and overcome once and for all the PAIN that exists when we do not understand that we are completely connected to our surrounding (humans, animals, plants and things)and mostly when we do not feel a non-stop connection with our source - the Devine.

First steps on fulfilling my vision:
I have written a short book called "Divine wants you to live in prosperity" where I analyze the bible through this point of view. I have also created a blog the where I share interesting self help tools that I find through the internet. I bellieve that through my blog I will get visibility and connections that will bring me to the "mastermind group" I am looking for. I need more spyritual leaders, as I am a christian Orthodox and I have ideas mostly about the bible. I am not an expert to the other religions - that I too respect a lot.

If sourcing food differently by early humans five thousand years ago kickstarted the patriarchal system that is now outdating, changing our food now can jumpstart a new cultural system in which divine humans live more in harmony with Mother Earth and all her creatures. Make no mistake, 7 billion mouths eating from and consuming the planet daily tells the collective consciousness what kind of world we wish to live in….sick, polluted, and degraded or abundant, clean, and full of life.

Bringing more conscious awareness to everyday choices, even the most mundane ones, can shift the direction of human evolution away from a path of extinction. It is erroneous to think that we can shift consciousness, stop destroying the planet, preserve humankind, and further positive evolution without changing the way we eat.

We often talk about bringing more consciousness into our work, communication, worship, buying habits, relationships, transportation, and politics yet we fail to see how food weaves through everything we do, everything we encounter, and how it impacts everything we care about in life. Food is so ever-present, it’s nearly invisible.

First steps on fulfilling my vision:
Live, teach, and advocate for a plant-based diet, specifically a high-fruit diet.

I met Barbara at her talk in Charleston, SC with The Sophia Institute in March 2014. I love her material, work, and her books, however I find the omission of diet glaring. Any conversation about creating a better future for human life to continue on Earth is incomplete without discussing how we eat. Expecting the world to change without changing the way we eat is a recipe for ignorant self-destruction.

Save the humans. Study your food. Eat to evolve.

I wrote this to explain myself to Barbara and The Welcoming Committee:

A pacific world without money. Every body are breatharian or eat fruits. We speak only one simple langage : esperanto and we can communicate with telepathie. We know how communicate with our soul and other entity.

First steps on fulfilling my vision:
We gather : each person awake join a group like this group. All the group for a better world (like also Ambassy of peace of Jasmuheen) gather.

Each person of these group place there money in an international alternative bank and learn esperanto.

This paralele organisation is stronger und stronger than ONU. There is more and more vegetarian and vegan person.
