“Thrive” is a documentary that was recommended to me by my close gal pal Emily last week. Over the Thanksgiving weekend Pemberton (my boyfriend) and I spent each night huddled around his tiny iphone screen to watch the nine-part movie…twice! You can find the movie on youtube or buy/rent it off of the Thrive website (http://thrivemovement.com/) . The synopsis on the Thrive website goes as follows:
THRIVE is an unconventional documentary that lifts the veil on what's REALLY going on in our world by following the money upstream -- uncovering the global consolidation of power in nearly every aspect of our lives. Weaving together breakthroughs in science, consciousness and activism, THRIVE offers real solutions, empowering us with unprecedented and bold strategies for reclaiming our lives and our future.
I will warn now…this movie will freak you out sometimes…you may be like “SAY WHAT?!?!” but hold on until the end. The connections made and conspiracies revealed lead to beautiful images of a peaceful world. I can’t wait for you all to watch it and get back to me. I’d like to open up the discussion so we can really create the inspiring communities and healthy planet I know is achievable.

This summer I started reading a book called Anastasia by Vladimir Megre. It’s the first book in a series of nine books called The Ringing Cedars Series. Anastasia is a woman who the author met while trading in Siberia on the Ob River in 1995. She lives in absolute harmony with nature; no man-made shelter, no clothes or food cultivation. The back of the book reads as follows:
“The Ringing Cedars Series is creating a wave of excitement that is sweeping the globe with positive, life-transforming messages of pure love energy from the beautiful Anastasia. Anastasia paints images of exquisite beauty, abundance, peace and harmony-images which will fill you with renewed hope and inspire you to begin creating a very different life for yourself- one far better than anything you might have previously imagined”
Not too shabby, right?!
I’m currently reading the fifth book in the series, which is called Who Are We? I have been reading this book more slowly then the previous four because I’m starting to realize how extremely powerful these images are that Anastasia is painting. It reminds me of the Marianne Williamson quote from her book A Return to Love:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.”
I have been slow in my reading because I know what stands in the way of my own greatness. I know that the seed that was planted, as I read the first book, has begun to sprout. I know that ignorance is bliss and I have gone too far past bliss to ignore. I find it to be no coincidence that this series made its way to my hands and that I have chosen to share it with you.
Encouraging you all to read this book is what I feel I need to do. My hope is that more people read and feel as inspired as I feel. We have never been so close to seeing Anastasia’s images and dreams come to fruition. And now I must sign off friends…I have a book to finish!
