PLANET HEART
One Planet. One Race. One Heart. We Are all One.

Are All

If one takes the letter, h, from the end of the word Earth and moves it to the beginning, it forms the new word,
Heart. This is Planet Earth, yet, we are also living on Planet Heart. Where our hearts beat as one - We Are
One. We just have to remember and wake up. Some of us are and it is our job to spread this energy and do
things that make a difference. Many of us, like We, The World, are working to make the world a better place for
us and for our children. We are living in very auspicious times. People in spiritual communities and organizations,
and the New Age Movement already know this, but we need to wake up the others who are still sleeping. The
rate of awareness is increasing. So, this is the meaning behind the name, Planet Heart. As a Project of We, The
World, we aim to extend their mission and believe that Planet Hearts mission is at the heart and core of that of We,
The World. The Mission of Planet Heart is to help cultivate a world of peace, helping to bring all humans together in
harmony on a global scale and to realize that We Are All One. The mission of We, The World is to maximize
social change on a global scale. We, The World is working to awaken a spirit of caring and involvement in the
public so that millions of people begin to see themselves as part of one global interdependent community, and
actively take part in creating a world that works for all! For more information go to: www.wetheworld.org.
Dear Community,
In 2007, I finally produced and manifested a long-time vision of mine - an annual earth day event and also
formed Planet Heart to do events such as this. I anticipate to do more events like this, and really just want to
bring people together to realize our oneness and produce extraordinary events. We have this life that we are
living, and we get to be in the driver seat. There are so many, many avenues that we take and things happen. It
is how we respond to them. We are what we think and we do what we choose. If we put our minds to something,
we really can do anything, even walk on hot coals. Yes, I came back last year from Tony Robbins Unleasing the
Power Within, and did a firewalk. I got to tell you, that was incredible, imagine 3300 people from all walks of life,
young and old, doing this walk. I have to admit, I was alittle skeptical but after being trained by Tony to feel and
think differently, I was ready to do it and when I did it, it was a piece of cake, and I didnt feel anything. It was a
big WOW for me. You ever have WOW moments in your life?? I love WOW moments, as I also love FLOW
moments, when we are in the FLOW of your lives and everything seems to be in synch with what we do, who we
meet, what happens, you know, synchronicity. In 2005, I was in the hospital for a major surgery, with a lifethreatening large-sized benign tumor, acoustic neoroma, which made me deaf in my left ear and retaught me the
value of life, its preciousness and the importance of having gratitude for what we do have. I am just one of many
of us who experience all kinds of big circumstances which give us a chance to really look at our lives and the
lives around us and go to the next level of being alive and understanding that phenomenon. That is, if we choose
to see it in that light. We are living in tremendous times, we must really take time to really take in the NOW
moments (I am still working on that myself), of our daily living its not easy sometimes. There are so many
energy shifts going on today, and we are all feeling it in different ways.
Thank you so much for coming and being part of the 3rd Annual World Peace Earth Day Celebrations that is
taking place both on April 22 2009. We have a very exciting program lined up for you and we hope you enjoy it
and that is well worth your while to come. I know you could have been anywhere and you chose to be here, and I
am in gratitude for your choice. I intend you to have the best night ever being here, and that you will be touched
beyond words. Through unity will bring world peace and from feeling connected, you will be connected. May you
feel connected tonight, tomorrow and every day of your life.
Please make sure to sign the mailing list on the cards you have been provided so you can be alerted of our
future events. And now, let us celebrate our beloved planet, Mother Gaia, and heal your heart.
We hope you enjoy the festivities.
May Peace Prevail on Earth. We Are All One.
Love, Light and Peace,
