11 Austin Texas United States
Where standing: A small group gathered in a good friend's yard in north Austin in May 2009. We support this vision.
The good emerging: Our dream encompasses a circle that was formed in Austin on a sunny Sunday in May 2009, as our small group of men and women, who heard this global dream, stood for this vision. We felt each other, and the expansion available to each of us as we connected with each other, to the dream, and felt the web of light, the filaments of intention connecting us to the many other circles around the planet. Mahalo for this opportunity. As we move from the shared ceremony, our dreams are activating as we each find ways to feed and care for the children, create safety, end violence, and demonstrate peace.
13 La Mesa California United States
Where standing: I will be outside in our beautiful oasis patio facilitating a teleconference call with friends, clients and colleagues from many parts of Canada, United States and Mexico to share our knowing of what is possible to create harmony and peace right now in this moment by connecting our consciousness and energy and holding the vision. Thank you for organizing this wonderful event for all of us to share in. With much love and gratitude, Judith Onley
The good emerging: I have a daughter and a son, and three grandchildren with another on the way. I am a Spiritual Mentor and Reiki Master and I have been traveling throughout North America devoting my life to facilitating people's connection to their Divine Essence. It is from that place deep inside us that we are able to create peace and harmony from within, that then manifests in our own lives and energetically reverberates out to our whole world. That is how we make a difference - by creating a resonate energy field that others can then just step into and align with. I also belong to a wonderful organization "Imagine The Good, who are currently producing a feature length documentary "The Heart to Lead - Women as Allies for the Greater Good". They are a group of women who have answered the call to step out of their everyday lives and change the world. That is what you are doing with Standing Women and I feel honoured and inspired to be part of your dream and to share it with others.
