Elizabeth Villani is an expert on positivity, she is a qualified coach and Reiki Master who runs her own successful development business Courageous Success. She experienced her own awakening in 2003 when she woke up and jumped off the London treadmill. A startling mystical experience in late 2008 revealed to her the reality of humanity and now she writes to support our awakening.
Her book, Awakening, is a book of our time. We have spent the last decades collecting the cars, the house, the image, and now we are reaching for whats next. We numb our worlds with wall to wall TV and an endless busyness that exhausts and shadows who we really are. When we stop, we long to maintain the stillness and enjoyment that we find.

In my new book, Flavours of Thought, one of the recipes deals with this aspect of goal setting and you can have a sample tasting of that recipe and the flavours you use to concoct it here.
Retrospectively, I’ve made it a new noun and given it some definitions …
Flought : noun
1. the flavour of a thought
2. the flow of a thought
3. a flood of thoughts
a flurry of thought
the fluency of our thoughts
the flourish of a thought
a fluorescence of thought – aka a light bulb moment
Hear about the background and philosophies in my new book with me in conversation with Christine Miller …
Over the last few thousand years, international travel has grown exponentially. Our human LAN’s became bigger and the Wide Area Network came about fostering international trade and collaboration. It was only natural that computer systems would want to talk across continents too – and the WAN arrived in the 60’s in the form of Arpanet, the progenitor of the Internet. Now we have social networks like Facebook and Twitter, our ability to have “pub conversations” instantly and internationally has well and truly arrived.
In a previous life about 10 years ago, I was Head of eBusiness at a company called Vanco. Vanco was short for the Value Added Network company and it added value by looking after business critical WAN’s, Wide Area Networks, for multinationals.
Today, now our networks have gone social but, if you want drive your network so it delivers what you want from it, adding value is the key.
The Value Added Network has arrived … and to learn drive your VAN both well and efficiently, you only have to learn just five C’s:
Generate value-added content. This means create new stuff or augment old stuff don’t just churn stuff out for SEO. Put retweets in context. Make sure you tweet less than 100 characters so others can do the same for you.
Make and forge new connections daily. It’s not about the number but the quality. Don’t be sucked in by ego-massaging scoring systems – they are mere baubles. The only measurement here is results.
Be creative in your content. When you connect people nodes on your network, make sure 1+1=3 or more and maintain Guanxi at all times.
Whatever you do, do it consistently. Be the authentic you not a copy or aspirant of someone else.
Push the boundaries. Do something different each day to add value to your connections. Learn a new fact or skill to extend your knowledge and capability.
Please add your thoughts and experiences here – if you can, make sure they start with C …

Furthermore, when I wrote the book, I was aware of two things:
1. There are many more than the initial 21 flavours and I will “translate” and “publish” more next year – these will come from the Minor Arcana and other arcane sources of symbology.
2. As it says in the book, there are many more than the 21 sample recipes.
Like all recipes however, there is a difference between throwing food in the microwave to warm it up and cooking a gastronomic delight worthy of a Michelin Star or three.
For this reason, I am proud to announce the launch of the Master Chef training programme.
Who is the programme for?
- Coaches, healers and therapists wanting a new set of tools
- Seekers of the Muse – artists, musicians, writers, scientists
- Parents and teachers
- Explorers of the mind
Training is carried out at my offices in the Surrey Hills or over Skype and desktop share for three people at a time.
A certain level of enlightenment is required before you will be accepted for the training and the badge of Master Chef is awarded upon the successful completion of post tasking.
… & note, only those of a sound mind and good heart need apply 😉
Every so often a book comes your way that simplifies what was previously both complex and hidden to you … they are, of course, always books you wish you could have written so eloquently.
Kuumba has neatly summed up why the people around us are around us, what messages they give us and how we can generate the world we want with the people we want to be with.
There’s loads more about Kuumba, the book, her workshops and her mission on her web site …
