The Video: Michael Inspired, Michael Approved

 The new “Words” Video for Voices Education Project is now available.

We hope you will share it with everyone…

To the Curriculum Authors:

How to I find them?
Where do they hide?

How do I thank you?
How do I put that feeling into a script?

Sometimes even wordsmiths are at a loss for words. Sometimes when words fail, imaginings do not.

So we cry. No, we weep. We weep in longing for the world that we know is possible.

But because it has not yet arrived, we give voice to it saying,  “I got moan” — the part of us that knows it and feels it and embodies it.

That empathic impulse knows and knows you, and knows that it knows– you. And me.

So to those people who took pieces of their soul and lent them to me briefely for safekeeping– I say thank you. And I know Michael thanks you too. I know this because I experienced a gratitude that brought me to my knees. It allowed me the final weeping. I know because of the healing arms of those gathered in the circle. It was timeless beauty. The lump in my throat is still there. Sometimes there is no mistaking the love in the room.

When that love in the room embraces, it needs no words, no description because the words to describe it don’t exist. And in fact, in that realm words can be a distraction.

So to those of you who contributed to the “Words and Violence” curriculum that is now published and available to every child in the world– I say thank you. And I say thank you from the Master. And I send you just a sliver of the love in the room but that is enough. Can you feel it?

As an artist, I would like to nod to some fellow artists whose work causes a sharp and sudden inbreath as it strikes awe: Gerri, Amy Grace and someone who must remain anonymous now for reasons that won’t matter in the future and who collaborated with me and brought the intuition and sensitivity to pull off a communication that has been called by many stunning…

You lovers of the children, lovers of the world– you know who you are. Michael knows who you are. And now the worlds knows…

Because you gave a piece of your soul, because you stepped up, because you dared to not hide your light, the world became brighter. Thank you from another place, another time. Thank you from the children of the world and the future. Thank you from the future world that these children create because of you.

There is love in the room. So, lovers of children and lovers of the world, you know who you are. Never, ever stop shining. I love you. So does he. ~Rev B

    Thanks to Michael because he has been the mediator of our meeting. I mean we some Michael’s fans with you. A feedback meeting where everyone learns from the other. I had the honor to be invited to participate in this project, but at that moment I felt unable to contribute something. Anyway, My admiration for you, for your dedication and your beautiful messages of hope and love to feed my soul. Thank you dear Barbara.

    Rev. Barbara,
    Thank you so much for providing the encouragement and guiding light that got this incredible project accomplished. Your inspiring words have given me so much to consider and work towards. I feel so fortunate that I was able to be a part of this project. I definitely feel Michael’s presence and influence in all of this. I learned a lot about myself through this process and I will try to continue to be a positive energy in the world through my words and my actions, no matter how big or small. I will certainly share this video that so perfectly describes the important message of the Words and Violence curriculum. What is the music that accompanies the video? It is simply beautiful. I enjoyed talking with you this afternoon during your “BlogRadio” show appearance. Your message that encourages the positive use of words and energy in our everyday life is very important and so meaningful in the world today where negative and hateful words seem all too common and accepted. We do have to continue to shine that positive light and “Make That Change!” Thanks again!

    This beautiful film, the culmination of caring people convinced that love is is the answer to everything, is so powerful and moving. It is a gift and should be shared with all who breathe. My deepest gratitude and thanks to everyone who made it possible. May it inspire and compel.

    By now many have awakened to the awareness that the musical genius of Michael Jackson was just the TIP of this iceberg. His true ministry was the ever-present mirror, as this Master Teacher taught by message and example how to shine so brightly shadow cannot remain. As Rev. Barbara has explained, shadow is the result of woundedness, and this planet is deeply wounded at this time. However, through his transitioning, Michael opened yet another door, another global opportunity to “make that change.” It is now up to us. We thank you Rev. Barbara and ALL for bringing this forth, for your tireless efforts in partnering with Michael to create this opportunity to get it done as we raise our voice as one. When the student is ready, the teacher will appear. He did. You did. Thank you.

    Between the video, your talk with Catherine on blog talk radio and your email about the many selves, I feel as if the pathway has been illuminated for me and I need to get my traveling shoes on. I have a journey to undertake. Thanks for giving me some tools to get there.

    Thank you Rev. Barbara for your kind words and the opportunity to be a part of this project. The funny thing is, I didn’t feel that I had anything to contribute at first. So when I heard about this project the first time around, I passed on it and just looked forward to seeing the end product. Things happen for a reason and when the opportunity to participate in this project came back around, I thought that perhaps I could contribute something. Your words to me were so wise in that “writing and contributing would help heal and open up my heart.” Well I can say absolutely without a doubt that my heart opened up, and opened up wide. I want to thank you for that, because I always considered myself to be an open person. After Michael left this world in June 2009, I found out that I was not as open as I’d thought. And I continue to realize that every day. I am very humbled to be a part of a project that will help many children and people across the globe. If the curriculum makes a difference in one child’s life, I say that we’ve accomplished something. I’m sure it will make a difference for many; I see it already on Facebook and Twitter. I tweet about it frequently. Your guidance and inspiration has been wonderful. Michael’s guidance and inspiration has been just amazing. I feel his energy at times. I do feel that this is something that he would most certainly appreciate. Thank you for your kind words about “feeling the love.” I honestly can say that I love you all too. Walking this path with you all has changed my life and I look forward to what is going to happen next on this journey. Thank you Rev. Barbara and thank you Michael. Namaste!

    Thank YOU Barbara ! Much, much gratitude. Thank you for being who you are. And so much gratitude also to Michael who allowed that beautiful encounter between you and us all. I think that in some ways Michael has chosen you Barbara, as his “assistant” here on earth. Much LOVE and Light. Namaste, Nicole

    I want to thank Michael from the bottom of my heart for being a Bridge of Light to all of us. Because walking through his music, his divinity, his brilliant and angelical art, during more than four decades and serving with LOVE around the world. We learned that heaven is a reality here on earth. Barbara THANK YOU! For being here with us shoulder to shoulder crying, laughing, fighting for justice, teaching us to love no matter what. GRACIAS! Myrna Ramos, México City.
