New Hopes for 2012!

Standard

Am I the only one — or has this last year been a crazy year for a lot of people? Feel free to leave comments! I’d really like to know.

This time last year I had new hopes for 2011 and was really gaining on my goals. However, my Soul wanted a different experience (and why was I the last to know??) and the year took so many twists and turns I felt like I was on Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride. Wheeeeeee! Gotta look at it that way. Thrilling adventure! New experiences. Tests to my endurance came one after another that make rowing 50 miles on a wild lake in the pitch dark crashing into newly downed trees and thick debris from a recent storm feel like a stroll in the park . And I thought the previous 51 years were hard.

I’m not being negative … actually I’m grateful I am still in one piece: NOT injured and very healthy. I’m in surprisingly good shape mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually … on the verge of the harvest and I’m tingling with anticipation. So many people have been supportive beyond the call of duty … so many blessings I would never have experienced if the bumps in the road weren’t there. I have always seen my mountain biking as a metaphor. I always see everything as a metaphor for that matter. Clearly, I do not prefer to ride the smooth trails. Where’s the challenge in that?

I am announcing I am stronger and better than ever. And I am ready for anything. What’s next? So many possibilities. All roads lead to The Cosmos in my life. You can interpret that any way you wish … they’ll all be true.

I welcome you to join me on this ANYTHING BUT BORING road to adventure where anything can and does happen that not even Gabriel Garcia Marquez could dream up in one hundred years of solitude. 

It’s only just begun.

A Magical Life-Changing Experience!

I am Trina Carrion from Venezuela. Last year during a tour of South America, I thought about Googling the word “rowing” because I was starting to take an interest in this beautiful sport, when I discovered a website: The Global Rowing Club. Founder Jenifer Humming’s story captivated me immediately. From her widely varied website (big surprise, not just about rowing!), I could see Jenifer was a talented writer, a genius inventor, greatly enlightened and spiritual, a super high level athlete with an incredible personality and a magnet to attract people. When I read she was recruiting for interns, I decided to contact this intriguing woman and struck a deal with her to come to the U.S. to work on their behalf. I came to learn to be her assistant and train to become a fundraiser for The Global Rowing Club. While there, I was able to assist in translating extensive amounts of information about Jenifer and her projects, especially her medical device that my own government has taken great interest in manufacturing. I continue to make translations of her writings and there will be a section of the website soon entirely in Spanish.

I lived a wonderful experience during my 9 months of working and learning with Jenifer. Since her beautiful home used to be a health retreat, there was the added benefit I could learn to live a more spiritual life, eat a more natural diet, how to sprout seeds and ferment food, and my dream come true, I learned how to row.

She exposed me to so many things new to me and expanded my outlook on everything, maybe most magical was her special way with hummingbirds! I also got to meet and be around other interesting and brilliant people who believe in Jenifer and support her cause. My health drastically improved, my fitness level increased, my self-esteem went up, I am now able to feel a great peace of mind. I am a different person with a more open mind, spirit and personality more integrated. She had and still has an influence of great value so I consider she totally transformed my life. I am now living a new life. I feel now I am being useful, and I am in love with our beautiful planet and its inhabitants, I feel that working with her, apart from the honor that it represents for me, now a very bright future awaits for me.

I witnessed how she worked in her workshop, where with great effort, integrity and dedication, she prototypes her inventions. The workshop is simply amazing, with many tools and gadgets that she dominates to perfection and keeps in perfect condition and clean. In this workshop I had the opportunity to observe and help in the redesign of one of her inventions: the ErgoRack! But the most striking is the way she creates her inventions, it comes from a particular need she has for something and cannot find on the market or she would have bought it instead of making it. That happened with the ErgoRack. She needed a rack she could put on and take off of her car easily, that let her load her boat on the top without assistance and secure it safely. In the workshop she showed me also examples of previous inventions, real samples of her ingenuity.

As a prolific inventor she has created a lot of things that make life easier and more practical to everyone from rowing accessories, an important medical device created to save the lives of billions of people, things for sports and fun, even a software training program for instructors of group weight training and body pump, food recipes and natural cosmetics, and books that tell you how to live well, how to eat properly, and other books hopefully soon to be published. But her talents do not end here. Jenifer has created a major project called “The Cosmos Renewable Energy Solution.”  With the help of business partners, sponsorship, fundraising and donations by people who love our planet, and the aid of specialists and engineers, this project is very ambitious and when accomplished would help to heal the ecosystem of our planet.

I have returned to Venezuela and plan from here to return to Europe where I will continue to get the word out about this important Campaign to make a big difference in the world by supporting Jenifer’s strategy to raise the funds to make The Cosmos a reality.

P.S. I wrote this in Spanish and translated to correct English with the help of  Jenifer. ¡No escribo perfecto en inglés!

The Adventures of New Paradigm Thinkers and Doers

Standard

As I have mentioned before, this is a new club, blog and website. I have been carefully considering my content and intent before taking the plunge to officially put it “out there.” There will soon be a page on the menu bar titled GRC Mission that will give an overview of exactly what it is I am hoping to accomplish and how exactly I plan to do it.

I am a detail-oriented person, while at the same time my view is a vast vista that makes the phrase “seeing the big picture” seem like peering through a porthole. If you want to hear an elevator speech summarizing what I am doing, you better pick an extremely tall building.

But just to start with … why such a broad spectrum of topics and goals all on one website? Well, simply put: it is just the tip of the ice burg of who I am and my mission for being on this planet I have come to love so! There is a lot here about what I am doing anyway as I “follow my bliss.” It is a wonderful thing to monetize life-style … something I was very successful at doing as a health-retreat owner. It’s so much better than working. Doing what I love to do, living the way I want to live and sharing it with other people has yielded the feed-back more times than I can count: “You’ve saved my life.”

So in a way, the Mission of The Global Rowing Club can be summed up by saying it is a way I can can share on a very large scale. It is a way I can give people the opportunity to join me to do with me what I would be doing anyway … so they can learn to save their own lives and help other people do the same.

Does that sound dramatic and over-stated to you? DO NOT underestimate the power of self-esteem and the personal fulfillment that comes from living a life of purpose. Not only does it make life worth living for the people who find a way to discover and create it for themselves — but it is contagious!

A CLUB THAT’S A HUB

I have founded The Global Rowing Club to be a hub for people all over the world to join together to become the relentless force that will be the salvation of our planet at the 11th hour. We already all belong to this club. My intention is to create an identifiable venue that we can all share no matter where we are in the world to inspire, collect and harness the power that is within us all to change the world. There will be a day when we will raise our glasses to toast restored oceans, fresh drinking water for the children in third world countries, changed lives everywhere, renewed hope and a bright future for everyone in a Healing World.

A “VARIETY” WEBSITE

Think of this as a “variety” website that will take you all over the place — but always going in the direction of renewing energy … yours, mine and the world’s! If you take the time to absorb the multi-media material on this site, you will begin to understand the method of my madness. Everything is connected in a fascinating, fun and profound way. It is not boring. It is all about energy. There is NOTHING that is not energy. Decide to harness it and learn to master it — in yourself and for the planet. That’s what this website is about. That is what we all are about.

I want to have fun, to entertain you, to inform you, to reach you and to inspire you — because you have stumbled upon The Global Rowing Club for a reason that is personal and important to you.

Dare to be a visionary. Dare to join me and many other New Paradigm Thinkers and Doers in this adventure. There’s room for everyone in this boat!

And for your entertainment, although I am new (naive and inexperienced) to making “movies,” I will punctuate my narrative occasionally with amateurish, amusing and often-times philosophical “Sofa Movies.” There may be as many hidden messages in my little creations as in DaVinci’s Last Supper. Are you a student of nuance? If so … you may be in peril of getting sucked into another dimension.

Why not take the Red Pill? Go Down the Rabbit Hole. Come with me to Wonderland!
