The 2015 World Peace Caravan and the Queen of Sheba

Digital Girl
What do the Queen of Sheba and the World Peace Caravan 2015 share in common?

The Queen of Sheba is seen in history as a seeker of truth and wisdom. Her story is profound in that she has been rumored to have a strange feature; a left foot that is cloven like that of a goat and a VERY hairy leg.  Truth or Myth?

The Queen of Sheba appears in religious texts sacred to Jews, Christians, and Muslims.

The wise queen had heard that King Solomon of Israel was also very wise and decided to travel by camel to Jerusalem to meet him and test his knowledge with questions and riddles.

She brings with her the gifts of frankincense, myrrh, gold and precious jewels.

This path the caravan traveled between the Queen’s kingdom and that of King Solomon became known as the Frankincense Trail.

 King Solomon heard of the Queen of Sheba, her great kingdom, her hairy leg and cloven foot.

Eager to see if the story was true, he has the floor of his court polished until it reflects everything that crosses it like mirrored glass. When the Queen of Sheba walks across the floor, Solomon sees the reflection of her cloven foot. However, right before his eyes, it transforms and becomes normal. One thing leads to another, and nine months later a son is born. Prince Menelik decides to travels the same Frankincense Trail to Israel to meet his father, King Solomon. When he returns, he takes with him the Ark of the Covenant, the sacred container containing the Ten Commandments.

The inaugural World Peace Caravan 2015 is a 12-day camel caravan for world peace that will retrace Queen Sheba’s peace journey to King Solomon 3,000 years ago.

Scheduled to depart Petra, Jordan on December 15, 2015, the caravan will travel by camel, horse, and foot to Jerusalem, retracing the steps of this early peace movement along parts of the storied Frankincense Trail. Join Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos and Lori Boyle as they:

  • interview the people involved in this peaceful event.  
  • meet the Director of the Caravan Kim Langbecker,
  • and the Youth Ambassadors who will be involved in this persistent setting occasion


The caravan will be anchored by two landmark events:
  1. the WPC Peace and Health Conference on the Dead Sea in Jordan
  2. the WPC Concert for Peace in Jerusalem.

A uniquely embracive movement, the WPC will engage participants:
  • physically,
  • emotionally,
  • mentally
  • and spiritually

It invites people of all cultures, faiths, and backgrounds to come together to demonstrate and promote peace, harmony, compassion, and a greater understanding of one another.

 “Our world is literally at the edge of a cliff, made ready to roll down by the adverse effects of human greed. So it leaves us with two choices; either we let it roll down, or we make a collective effort to make some paradigm shift to pull it back and make it just, peaceful, and sustainable for a better future for ourselves and the generations to come.” ~Simran Vedvyas

The WORLD PEACE CARAVAN is founded by the international D. Gary Young Foundation, a 501 © (3) non-profit organization.

Of note……The Economist has featured the World Peace Caravan on its December calendar for events to watch out for in 2015!

The Kathleen O'Keefe-Kanavos Radio Show: The Karma Queens-What's Love Got to do With It?

Click the link below to listen to an incredible radio show that will help you discover the Secrets to Changing the Karma in Your Relationships with Lovers, Spouses, Family and Friends.
Want to know What's Love Got to Do With It? Ask Tina Turner. Want to know what KARMA's got to do with it? Ask Carmen and Alexandra Harra!
Dr. Carmen Harra, author of the international bestseller Everyday Karma, and her wise-beyond-her years daughter Alexandra, as they team up on the book The Karma Queens Guide to Relationships: The Truth About Karma in Relationships (Tarcher/Penguin; May26, 2015.
They reveal to listeners and readers how to learn the truth of their individual relationship karma.
The result is a golden manual of wisdom in relationships from both a spiritual and practical standpoint.
On the show Dr. Carmen Harra discusses how to:
  • achieve flawless communication,
  • heightened intimacy, and a deeper connection.
Their book clarifies how to:   
  • Discover the way you first accumulated the negative energy you put on yourself
  • Determine if your accumulated karma is preventing you from meeting your romantic soul mate, or if you instead need to clear outside influences affecting your current relationship
  • Wipe out everyday relationship worries
  • Overcome former betrayals
  • Scope out the real reason behind your partner's actions
  • Calculate your numerology to better understand yourself and those you love
  • Use "karmic cycles" to your advantage, so you are not as burdened by life's ups and downs
  • Learn to be a better friend, family member, romantic partner and member of a community-and ultimately strengthening your relationship with yourself
The Karma Queens' Guide to Relationships teaches us that there exist four types of love relationships and the rare intensity of a soulmate bond is outlined in ten elements that reveal whether our partner is indeed our heart's other half. Understanding the reality of our relationships allows us to navigate through them with ease and without unnecessary complications.
These two women--one a world renowned author, psychologist and intuitive seen on Good Morning America, The View, Fox News, The Today Show, and CBS' The Early Show and the other, a gorgeous model, life coach, Huffington Post columnist and trendsetter among the millennials--are The Karma Queens and guest on the Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos show on the Wicked Housewives ON Cape Cod Radio, where they discussed and answered questions like:
  • what is karma
  • the reason we must learn certain lessons,
  • overcome certain challenges,
  • and meet certain people.
Karma it spills onto our relationships with others, affecting our human bonds to the breaking point, unless we acknowledge and resolve our karma once and for all. Then, you can:
  • finally escape vicious cycles
  • and progress towards permanently fulfilling relationships
On the show Dr. Harra discusses their new book The Karma Queens' Guide to Relationships: the Truth About Karma in Relationships (Tarcher/Penguin; May 26, 2015) and reveal the secrets of how to transform the karma in all of your relationships-with lovers, spouses, family and friends. If it's not working or it's broken, there may be more here than you are aware of.
Karma is the missing ingredient to changing what's not working to what is!
The Karma Queens' Guide to Relationships unveils the secret that many of us seek throughout our life: that karma is both the problem and solution. Karma is the accumulation of our thoughts, intentions, and actions, both good and bad.
 Karma manifests into everyday life and attaches to our consciousness until it is dealt with.
 The Karma Queens' Guide to Relationships illustrates the small, but mindful steps we must take each day to resolve our outstanding karma, from modifying behavior, elevating self-love, and practicing exercises to purify energy. Miraculous relationships await when we eradicate the negative effects of the past and create new, positive karma for an infinitely joyful future.

3 Reasons Why Retreat for the Soul is THE Play-date for Adults

Girl Blowing Red Hearts To Her Lover For Valentines
Let Your Soul Soar!
You do so much that is important for your body like eat well, exercise right, and get a good night's sleep.  And, we care for our mind by doing daily "brain exercises" with memory lists like:
  1. remember to pick up the dry-cleaning,
  2. get the dog from the groomer
  3. ..wasn't there something else? Oh yeah…the KIDS!

Life is hard work! If I knew I had to give up play for work I would never have become an adult.

Play is so important for social growth that we make sure our children and pets have scheduled play-time. We make them play-dates.
When was the last time you scheduled yourself a Play-date?
You may be starved for joy.  Yes, starved! As women, and some men, we are the natural care-givers in our families. Many of us were trained that way; others were naturally born with the gift of giving. Are you the one who cares for your family?
You spend time and money for everyone else …first.  So...what have you done lately for YOURELF? Better yet, what have you done for your SOUL? When was the last time you felt it soar through the air and sing like a bird? It may have been trying to speak to you in Daydreams. Have you been too busy to listen or even notice?
It is time to give your body a Play-date and your SOUL a treat with Retreat for the Soul.
According to a study published in Play is just as important for adults as it is for children. “Defining play is difficult because it’s a moving target,” Scott G. Eberle, Ph.D, vice president for play studies at The Strong and editor of the American Journal of Play, said. “[It’s] a process, not a thing.” He said that it begins in anticipation and hopefully ends in poise. “In between you find surprise, pleasure, understanding — as skill and empathy — and strength of mind, body, and spirit.”
Here what some other experts and studies have said about the importance of adult play time.
  • “The only kind [of play] we honor is competitive play,” according to Bowen F. White, MD, a medical doctor and author of Why Normal Isn’t Healthy.

  • “We don’t lose the need for novelty and pleasure as we grow up.” Scott G. Eberle, Ph.D. vice president for play studies at The Strong and editor of the American Journal of Play.

Psychiatrist Dr. Stuart Brown, founder of the National Institute for Play, calls play a “state of being.” Brown compares play to oxygen. He writes, “…it’s all around us, yet goes mostly unnoticed or unappreciated until it is missing.” This might seem surprising until you consider everything that constitutes play. Play is art, books, movies, music, comedy, flirting and daydreaming, writes Dr. Brown,

Competitive play in children prepares them for competition in the adult world and work place. But, what is an adult to do who has been in a competitive environment all day and needs to play for the sake of playing, as our experts have pointed out?
We have a Retreat for your soul. Partake of a day full of dreams, socializing and adult play.
It will do you a world of good.
Retreat for the Soul focuses on YOU!
You deserve to Take 1 DAY out of your busy life for YOU!
Come and join us, Wicked Housewives On Cape Cod TV & Radio Hosts/Producers   Lori Boyle Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos,  Award winning and bestselling author, Driven Women Keynote, and Dream Therapist on beautiful Cape Cod for the One-Day-Event.

5 Simple Solutions to Give You an Edge During a Long Interview Process.

How do you stay mentally fresh during a long job interview process? Perhaps you have considered finding a new job, or asking for a higher paying position in your current  company.
  One of the things that may be holding you back from going forward is the long, nerve wracking interview process itself that may involve many call backs for higher level interviews.

How can you stay fresh and on top of your game in an energy charged environment? 

Long interviews can be emotionally and physically exhausting for a number of reasons:
·         You know you are completing against other experts in your field.
·         Your attitude and sustainability under pressure is also being judged, so you must be "up" at all times without looking fake.
·         It is difficult living under a microscope for an extended period of time.

Here is some advice for job seekers.

Remember-You are all in the same interview process so focus on what can you do to move ahead of the other interviewees.

Here are 5 Simple Solutions that answer the questions:

  • What are some ways to stay mentally fresh throughout the process?
  • What are some ways to find serenity as the pressure mounts?
  • How should you approach other opportunities that may arise? 

5 Things You Can Do to Give Yourself the Edge During a LONG Interview Process.

1.) Wear comfortable shoes- sounds simple but when your feet hurt your whole body hurts, and it shows on your face which may be mistaken as a "grumpy person."

2.) Positive mental attitude: Start your day right with mirror therapy. When you brush your teeth in the morning tell your reflection why you are the best candidate for the job by focusing on our strengths, then tell yourself how much you appreciate your opportunity to share your qualifications with others. The words you say now may pop into your mind later in the day during the interview, and you will say them with confidence because you believe them.

3.)  Keep up your momentum when you are neck-to-neck with someone else for the job.  Anytime you sit down take 3 deep "empowering breaths" and imagine them going to any part of your body or spirit where they are needed for reinforcement. 

4.) Smile! Even if you do not get this job, your smile may be so memorable it will open doors for another one. You just never know.

5.) Drink plenty of water. Dehydration under pressure shuts down the brain neurons which slows down thinking and responses. You must be on top of your game.
