“Let this book be part of YOUR journey; a perfect accompaniment for any entrepreneur – and one that sparks ideas and generates momentum.”
http://oxfordsummercourses.com/osc_english_language_logo_white/ René Carayol, MBE, Britain’s Business Guru, Inspired Leaders Network

“It looks really fantastic – great job. I love it – short, sweet and densely packed with no fluff and the essence of what entrepreneurs needs.
Success in business is not necessarily having the right product or service at the right time and knowing how to get people to buy it.

There is something much more fundamental than that and it’s about having the right mind set. This intelligent and formative book starts out by explaining how key priming your mind for success is. 

What then follows is a wealth of information from some incredible business minds. It is also typical of the generosity of the author Christine Miller not to have attempted to paraphrase the wisdom of the contributors but to have designed the meta-concept behind the book and woven together contributions in such a seamless manner.

This book is easy to read and the ideas it contains easy to implement. If you are serious about business and want to discover a fresh approach, it is invaluable reading.”

Tom Evans, Author of Blocks, Flavours of Thought and The Art and Science of Lightbulb Moments

“Christine has an extraordinary way with words. They reach deep inside of you and touch those thoughts you know are there but have been fearful of acknowledging.

Having turned the key she opens the door and gives you the courage and tools to move forward into becoming a truly resourceful entrepreneur fit for the challenging times we are facing at the beginning of this amazing 21st century. Christine shows us how we can put our special gifts and talents out into this world making it a better place for everyone.  

Whatever Christine writes is worth reading – she has a way of getting to the core of her subject making it readable, practical and usable, and her poetry is sublime. She has a rare gift, check out her books and poetry now.”

How to achieve better social media presence

How to Manage Your Social Media Presence for Better Business Results

Solving your digital identity crisis….

 

The speed with which new social networks and media keep popping up is enough to make your head spin and your thoughts reel, and if you’re anything like me, as a passionate people person, you join these new entities out of curiosity and the wish to stay ahead and be connected.

Fill in the profile, have a look around and then … well, most of them languish unattended, and even remembering where you have a presence let alone the passwords and user names for all these sites is a real challenge.

I know I should neatly and carefully record all my digital identities in one place – and some I do, but sometimes, well, real life gets in the way and I find myself scrabbling through emails to find the login and membership details when something brings that site back into my awareness.

Just How Many Networks and Sites?

An audit showed me that I am on close to 50 different social media, networking or activity measurement sites, and I am sure there are more than a few long-forgotten ones lurking somewhere in my net history! Some have likely faded or disappeared, or been reborn in another form, and will remain in the hinterlands of my web-connected life – unless they don’t…

Different types of networks, with different people with diverse interests, from business to spirituality, art to quantum physics and much more. Confusing, and awkward, sometimes,  to know how to best connect with the rich array before me.

The Web of Life

A few months ago, I joined XeeMe. I added my social presences, just the obvious ones like Linked In, Facebook, GooglePlus, Twitter, Ecademy, my blogs and websites…then I left it untouched. Late last week, something triggered my interest – I think it was a mention of how powerful XeeMe was in propelling his social media profile forwards and upwards by Michael Q. Todd, which I picked up in my Facebook stream. I went to have a look and found myself enthused by the possibilities and the power of what XeeMe had to offer. I began to ‘get’ the purpose that drives the platform.  I quote: “XeeMe is NOT “yet another network”, we are all overwhelmed with networks. XeeMe is actually a tool helping to organize overwhelming presences.” It’s true.

Bringing It All Together

I knuckled down and gave some thought to where else I had memberships, prompted by the very helpful ‘Social Presence’ facility on the XeeMe site, which reminded me of plenty more places I had profiles. I spent a fruitful couple of hours adding and linking, uploaded some contacts, and connected with some of XeeMe’s top performers to see how they have managed to expand their presence.

I then joined a very supportive XeeMe power networker group on Facebook, where advice and co-operation are excellent, and found myself being tweeted and re-tweeted, followed, liked and all those things that demonstrate social media at its best.

Your Entire Social Presence

My social presence on XeeMe was tiny at the beginning of April, as you can see from the graph below.

Since I have spent just a little time making connections, adding sites where I have a presence, now up to 37 listings, and have added my ‘XeeMe’ link –  http://xeeme.com/ChristineMiller – to my email signatures, my Facebook ‘About’ section, and various other places, my score has rocketed from 23 on April 23rd,  to 630 today May 3rd.   I am now expanding my ‘Entire Social Presence’ link to other contact areas, something I am gradually working through to make it consistent, enabling people to find me more easily and decide where they want to interact with me.

Now I am starting to use engagement and true connection, with conversations and exchanges with people with whom I share interests, being more people focused than network focused, offering value and making it easy for people to truly ‘See me’. It’s fun and productive, and has seen subscriptions to my Business and Personal growth portal, Resource shoot up – I recommend XeeMe wholeheartedly, why not come and join the fun?

Expanding Awareness: True Potential with Gaetano Vivo

Expanding Awareness: True Potential with Gaetano Vivo

Today I have the great pleasure of being the host on Day 1 of the Virtual Blog Tour of author Gaetano Vivo whose book ‘Messages from the Angels of Transparency: Powerful Words from Gentle Souls’ launches on Amazon on Tuesday March 20, 2012.

Italian born, Gaetano Vivo is one of Europe’s most experienced and sought-after Reiki Masters, practicing in the UK, the US and Italy.

He is a member of the Complementary Medical Association of Great Britain, the International Council of Holistic Therapies, the International Association of Reiki Professionals and the Noetic Association of America. From a young age he has experienced the ‘calling’ of ‘others’ who wish to pass on teachings and wisdoms in order we may make lighter work of our time here on Earth.

Although, due to being brought up in a strict Catholic community, he was forced to ignore this information, he never forgot what he had received. For decades, Gaetano has been treating clients from all walks of life, regardless of faith or creed, believing that the healing power of love is open to all of us. When not touring he divides time between his homes in England and Italy and takes great delight in his garden.

Gaetano’s new book ‘Messages from the Angels of Transparency: Powerful Words from Gentle Souls’ addresses the questions:
“Could wise and wonderful beings contact us from beyond this world and unveil our true potential?

messages_from_the_angels_of_transparency2-300x300  Would knowing that we really mattered enable us to uncover the truth behind our reason for living?”

This fascinating book offers answers, spiritual practices and comprehensive meditations by teacher, healer and author, Gaetano Vivo, which have the potential to strengthen, heal and transform lives and bring hope and inspiration. It also clarifies the true nature of Reiki as a simple, yet profound tool for accessing and accepting the power of universal energy—what we might call ‘love’ or ‘God’—and touches on our fundamental dilemma: Who are we and why do we exist?

More than 20,000 people have already enjoyed Gaetano’s earlier offerings in both English and Italian. This book offers the reader a chance to digest messages from ‘higher beings’ for greater understanding of our own personal evolution. Anyone seeking to live a happier, better life, and has felt the desire to undertake life with greater confidence and self-worth, will relish this book.


Today, I’d like to share with you a recent interview I had with Gaetano when I got to ask him some questions on life story, love/forgiveness and raising your awareness.
I hope you enjoy it.


Christine Miller: Gaetano, tell me what inspired the messages in your book, and what happened in your life that prompted you to write the Angels of Transparency?

Gaetano Vivo: A few years ago I was going through a personal crisis.  I was teaching a Reiki III class in Naples and during a meditation a big group of Angels appeared before me. They called themselves the Angels of Transparency. It was a big group and the ones that I could clearly see were a group of children angels that were prompting me to stop, stay still and work on myself. They told me how important it was for me to address some issues with my inner child and that was going to be the most important thing for me to do at that time in my life. During this work with my inner child I learned to cherish, nurture and feed him with great love and through this journey of self-discovery I gathered the inspiration to write “Messages from the Angels of Transparency”.

Christine Miller: How important are Love and Forgiveness in expanding our awareness and creating a more peaceful world for ourselves and for the human race?

Gaetano Vivo: Love is the most important thing we have. Receiving and giving love is the most beautiful thing that an individual can experience in his life. Love is the tool that allows us to expand awareness and create a peaceful world around us. It is so important to reach love for ourselves, like healing the inner child, so that we are able to use the power of love to heal others around us. We have to go through a great journey of forgiveness and self-love. Once we have healed ourselves we can move forward into our next step of healing others.

Christine Miller: What stories and meditations would you like to share about working with the archangels which our readers can use now to raise their awareness?

Gaetano Vivo: There are several stories that I could talk about that happened during the writing of my book. The one that has helped me the most is working with my inner child. Realizing that we have a little angel that lives in our heart it is the most important thing, in my opinion, that can happen to us. Working with the inner child and coming to terms with certain things that have happened to you in the past and healing them there is one of the most important parts of this process. So call upon Archangel Raphael who appears with the Angels of Transparency to help you heal your inner child. Working with him you will see how important it is to cherish, nurture and feed him with this great love that both of you need.

Responsible Reporting, Open Journalism

Guardian video

This recent advert from the Guardian in the UK is brilliant and thought provoking.

Based on a modern day interpretation of the 'Three Little Pigs', it demonstrates how perspective, opinion, bias, assumptions creep in to distort the 'story', and how an (apparently) simple children's tale can be interpreted from so many different angles, with lots of huffing and puffing.

Great job and so relevant.

Meditation and Longevity

My dear friend Dadi Janki of the World Spiritual University speaks about increasing your life span through peace, love and meditation. 

She recently celebrated her 96th birthday, and danced on the stage at her party…she is an inspiration to us all. 

I've been lucky enough to spend time on retreat with her, and to have interviewed her several times. 

You can see a report I wrote about her for Inner Wave HERE
