Social media and building your online brand are hot topics in the media today. The debate ranges from those contending you must be on social media – commenting, posting, and being visible – to succeed in your career, to others saying social media will ruin your career. In this episode of The Career Confidante, host Marie Zimenoff will bring sanity to the madness with practical points to consider what (if any) social media activity is right for your career and how you can use it as a career management or career advancement tool. We’ll talk about social media hiring trends, how to use the top career-related social media (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and even Instagram), and the truth about personal branding. If you are feeling overwhelmed, lost, or ready for a real strategy, tune in!

Selenite balances the mind and brings a light ray into every environment. You can even embed information into the Seleniteâs light ray. Just sit in meditation and put your Selenite on the third eye area. Project your mental picture, message, or idea that you would like to send out, with as clear an intent of accomplishment as you can imagine. For example, you can send your healing energy and protective thoughts for someone you love.
Selenite brings clarity of mind and activates the seventh chakra, Sahasrara, which is our direct link to the Spirit. When the seventh chakra is balanced, we are able to understand our connection with the universe, we are one with the entire Divine creation. Selenite is a link to the consciousness of the Angelic kingdoms. It realizes that function by merging with our light body.
Selenite can be used to awaken or deepen our telepathic ability. Placed in the four corners of the house, Selenite helps establish perfect peace and protects against negative external influences. Some people believe that Selenite can easily reach our past and even future incarnations, retrieving deep insights about our true nature. Mental confusion can be lifted by placing a piece of Selenite on the top of the head.
Selenite is white and most commonly translucent. It has nice looking striations (parallel channels) and exhibits a pearly, silky luster.
Selenite is capable of directing the feelings that emerge from your heart. This energy is usually lost and dissipated, but with Seleniteâs help you can lift it up on the level of the Christ Presence in your being.
Selenite works in two ways â it can enhance the frequency of the physical matter, so that it comes closer to the spiritual world, or it can reduce the frequency of the spiritual light to harmonize with the physical world.
You should treat Selenite with care because it can change your four lower bodies: physical, etheric, emotional, and mental. Selenite can effect the three higher spiritual bodies as well. You need to have a conscious desire for the inner transformation to happen, and to be willing to accept the changes within your being. If you are predisposed to work with Selenite on a deeper level, sooner or later, you will feel the call.

âWith our thoughts, we make the world.â
My first gardening calendar was published in the year 1993. I had worked with a renown photographer for over eighteen months shooting fabulous photos from my garden throughout the seasons, taking copious notes of what to do and when to do it, traveling to numerous zones to note the monthly cycles. Â I wrote my copy on an Apple desktop, the photographs were transparencies, and the finished product was a beautiful, printed, shrink-wrapped gift of beautiful flowers with monthly tips worth saving. Over the years, people have shown me the tablemats, collages, and other creative things that were made with that calendar. Since the back up to all of my work was on floppy disks, I no longer have access to my unedited insights. Thankfully, I have the photos and the published calendar as a souvenir of my efforts. Â This loss of my creative writings caused me to ponder the digital mania that has descended upon humanity in our yearning to eliminate paper archiving. We tend to keep everything on our computers, designating Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest as our memory banks.
My fear is that our history will be relegated to oral rememberings as technology rapidly changes. Since computers became a household necessity, weâve stored our data on floppies, CDâs, DVDâs, flash drives, portable hard drives, and now the cloud, but will future generations be ever able to access any of this as equipment evolves and changes? My iphoto folder has now surpassed 20,000 jpegs. Digital photos from 2009 and earlier that were not printed are no longer accessible since Iâve upgraded computers multiple times and those earlier back up disks are not compatible.
Earlier this year, I made a book of my favorite garden photographs throughout the seasons accompanied by my favorite garden quotes. The book was a gift to myself as a reminder of my years of dedication, hard work, and love of nature. As I perused snapshots from a quarter century of gardening bliss, I was able to see how much I had accomplished with the help of Mother Nature. Â How happy I am that I had not only digitized photos, but also printed them for posterity. When we first moved to this area, our lot was a hillside of wild grasses, poison oak, and blackberry bushes. It is now an oasis filled with lush landscaping, orchards, vines, trees, fruits, herbs, flowers, birds, bees, butterflies, and wildlife. Â One of the mottos I have always lived by is âwhat you think about and talk about comes about!â For me, Iâm always thinking about gardening. Today, all I have to do is look around to see that my personal world was created in my thoughts.
As the end of the year approaches, I encourage you to invest in archiving your precious memories of family, friends, pets, plants, and places you love not only on your apps and gadgets, but in the old fashioned way, printing. Donât allow your legacy of a life well lived become obsolete as technology races forward. Do some digital digging and store a hard copy of your treasures. Plant and grow your memoirs.
May you shine with happiness for the holidays. Thank you for a fabulous year of Digging Deep and Gardening with Cynthia Brian. I appreciate you.
Cynthia Brianâs Mid Month Reminders and Tips
â« REFRAIN from collecting and eating mushrooms unless you are absolutely certain they are edible. A good friend recently collected a variety of mushrooms based on information she perused in a foraging guidebook. Fortunately she took them to a mycological expert for positive identification. Eighty-four of the eighty-five fungi she had in her basket were poisonous!
â« CLEAN storm drains, gutters, and anywhere where water could clog or cause problems when the rains come.
â« DECORATE for the holidays with branches, leaves, berries, twigs, pinecones, and natural cuttings from your back yard. Utilize surprising colors, like purple, not just red, greens, and blues.
â« COVER tender plants from frost and cold temperatures with burlap. Patio furniture can be protected from the elements with plastic, but use burlap or fabric on plants and shrubs. Citrus is especially susceptible to frost bite.
â« CREATE a charming birdhouse with corks! With the festivities of the holidays, collect corks to make a home for your feathered friends.
â« SPRAY paint the un-carved pumpkins and gourds silver, gold, or bronze to add pizzazz to a front porch or entrance. For recycling at its best, after the holidays, add to the compost pile
â« BAIT for snails and slugs during this wet season.
â« HARVEST cabbages, Swiss Chard, and kale. Massage your kale to tenderize and eliminate bitterness.
â« TUNE in to StarStyleÂ® Radio on December 30 for a full hour of LIVE garden talk with Britainâs rose expert from David Austin Roses. 4-5pm PT. Â Bare-root plantings start in January and this show will give you lots of information!
â« MAKE a photo album of your garden pictures throughout the years as a gift to yourself and future family gardeners.
Itâs too late to seed or re-seed your lawns. My new grass is coming in slowly because of the extreme changes in weather. In spring, we will revisit planting a waterless turf when soil temperatures rise to 50-70 degrees.
Happy Gardening and Happy Growing.

Google, IBM, Microsoft, Apple, Facebook, Baidu, Foxconn, and others have recently made multi-billion dollar investments in artificial intelligence and robotics. Some of these investments are aimed at increasing productivity and enhancing coordination and cooperation. Others are aimed at creating strategic gains in competitive interactions. This is creating âarms racesâ in high-frequency trading, cyber warfare, drone warfare, stealth technology, surveillance systems, and missile warfare.
Cynthia Brian finds out what ASI is and how it will affect our world with scientist, author, entrepreneur, professor, and expert on artificial super intelligence, Dr. Steve Omohundro.
