Anonymous Love And Peace Guy Wants Ryan Seacrest AND YOU To Help The World With Simple 3 Finger Handsign
by Lyn Lomasi; Owner & Ordained Shaman at Intent-sive Nature & Brand Shamans Content Community
I was able to interview a very unique individual who has been fasting for love and peace. Upon learning more, I had some questions and he readily answered.
Why Are You Fasting For Love And Peace?
Because the world is hungry for Love and Peace. So, as part of my effort to spread Love and Peace around the world during the month of December, I chose to not eat as I normally would, until the world eats as it should.
I should also mention that I remained anonymous throughout this effort because I didn’t want to draw focus away from its messages and to make it clear that I wasn’t doing this for any personal gain or attention.
Why Choose New Year's Eve and What Difference Could Ryan Seacrest Make?
I chose New Year’s Eve as the time, Times Square in New York City as the place and Ryan Seacrest as the person who could use his notoriety and Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest broadcast that reaches millions of people, to display to the world the three-finger hand sign that symbolizes Love and Peace for all people and all things.
That would create what I referred to as a ‘Feast of Love and Peace’ where the whole world has a place at the table. Thus, “nourishing” the world with Love and Peace using this three-finger hand sign as the spoon, to launch a new year, new month and new day of Love, Peace, harmony and goodwill for all creation. Making 2023 the dawn of a new age of light for us all!
How Can Others Help Spread Love And Peace?
By, quite simply, offering the three-finger hand sign (see above) that represents Love and Peace for all people and all things to their family and friends and asking them to do the same.
We’ve had the use of the Peace sign for over fifty years but unfortunately we don’t have Peace. I say that’s because the Peace sign is missing the key ingredient of LOVE!
For us to have Peace, Love has to lead the way. Love has to manifest! That’s why this sign is structured as ‘LOVE AND PEACE!’
We can think of Peace as a beautiful destination that we all want to travel to and Love is the vehicle that will take us there.
Now I’m not advocating for the doing away of the Peace sign. All I’m saying is that it’s time we up our game and make this unpretentious, nonthreatening three-finger hand sign become known and used universally to spread the concept of a beautiful Love and Peace filled world for all people and all things! Just imagine how wonderful it would be if by holding up this hand sign we can create Loving, Peaceful platforms from which we defuse confrontations, settle our differences, heal our environment and remove turmoil and strife from our lives and our world.
By using this hand sign we show our Love, honor and respect for others and celebrate our similarities and uniquenesses! It’s what our world needs now for us to do!

What have you done to make a difference today? Sharing an inspirational meme or video is awesome. But do you practice what you are sharing? I mean truly practice, not just talk about it.
There is always something you can do to help someone else and it doesn't always cost money. Most of the time it simply takes love. But when it does take an investment of either time or money, can people count on you?
Will you be remembered for spreading the love or for kicking people while they are down? I know which one I want to be remembered for and I am constantly putting that intent out there with not just words, but actions that match them.
Are you manifesting love or hate? What you say and do is what you create, both for yourselves and for others.
Is the Truth Divided Between Community & Law Enforcement? - Interview with Author & Officer Nakia Jones of "The Truth Divided"
In our recent interview with Nakia Jones, we discussed the reasons behind writing her book “The Truth Divided” and gained some insights into the book’s title, the Black Lives Matter movement, and what the book can do for all who read it.
Q: What is discussed in your book and why did you feel it needed to be written?
A: In my book, I discuss why I became a law enforcement officer and the challenges of being a women in law enforcement and being an African American mother of two sons and dealing with the divide between the color of my skin and the uniform I wear. The difference is I can remove my uniform, but I can't remove the color of my skin. The book also talks about the first time I felt the divide between law enforcement and the police during the Rodney King beating. It also touches on black on black crime as well as Black Lives Matter and Blue Lives Matter, and the importance of them both to me .
Q: Would you call “The Truth Divided” a “tell-all” kind of book?
A: No, “The Truth Divided” is not a tell all book. There were many things I couldn't discuss. The next book will definitely fill in a lot of the blanks.
Q: Were there any parts of this book that were difficult for you to write?
A: The entire book was difficult to write because it’s about such an emotional topic, a subject that has a mass effect on our country, even outside our country, today.
Q: What did you learn through the process of writing this book, about yourself and others?
A: I learned that writing and reading this book has begun to help me heal. It also has taught me that no matter what the color of your skin is in a lot of ways we are all saying the same thing. Lives matter and rights have no color. I also believe that if we can just dispel some of our fears and biases we will all be capable of living in harmony. Because, at the end of the day, we are all one race, the human race. Our skin, hair and eye color may be different, and we may have come from different regions, but we are all human beings and one race is not superior to another.
Q: How do you feel “The Truth Divided” will help the Black Lives Matter movement?
A: I believe this book will help the Black Lives Matter Movement, because it allows others to see what and why we are fighting and why the movement is so important. It also will help people understand why a movement like this even exist and that it’s not to downplay or be against any other race. Black Lives Matter understands and has never disputed that ALL LIVES MATTER. It is just right now it seems to be fact that the only lives that seems not to be a part of ALL LIVES MATTER are BLACK LIVES.
Q: What do you hope that “The Truth Divided” will do for people?
A: I pray that this book first of all brings Unity and Understanding between Law Enforcement and the Minority Community, as well as it becomes a teaching tool to dispel the myths and biases that we learn when we are younger, which in turn will end racism. I also hope that it brings the Minority community together and also to let Mothers of African American sons know they have a voice.
Serving Homeless Youth Through Education: An Interview With Motivational Speaker, Author Michael Gaulden
I recently had the opportunity to speak with homelessness activist, motivational speaker, education enthusiast, musician, and author Michael Gaulden. We spoke about serving homeless youth in America and the need for more support. All questions are asked by me (Lyn Lomasi) and all responses are Mr. Gaulden's words.
What is one area you feel is lacking when it comes to serving homeless youth in America? Explain the area, how it's lacking, and how you think this could be changed.
I believe that homeless youth are lacking the proper education for an opportunity to liberate themselves. We are talking about individuals who have been traumatized at a very early age and we must take a trauma informed approach when educating these students. Traditional schools and methods of teaching do not work because they fail to acknowledge that a child cannot focus on school if their life is falling apart.
For example, picture an unaccompanied youth who roamed the streets all night and has no access to toiletries or a shower. How can you justifiably expect them to come to school with a sharp mind ready to take an exam for the final grade?
We must acknowledge first that homeless youth exist and are prevalent in our communities. Secondly, we must acknowledge their circumstance and do our best to help supplement the basic needs required to live.
The Monarch School, the K-12 institution for homeless youth where I work, has a parent resource center, showers for families and students, family dinners, bus passes and resources to help remedy some of the everyday struggles of homeless youth and their families.
Although we can’t house them, I believe a safe environment that is proactive about homeless necessities is required for the growth and development of homeless student learning. After their basic needs are met, give them opportunities to develop, such as internship programs (like the one I coordinate) and/or college preparatory programs to provide guidance and allow a homeless child the same liberties as any other student.
I can attest that all you need is an opportunity and a positive environment to learn and grow.
Are there enough organizations, individuals, and grassroots organizations reaching out to homeless youth? Why or why not?
Not at all. A major factor is that people believe that homeless youth are myths or consist of snobbish suburban kids in open rebellion. We need to understand that this is simply not the case. There are millions of homeless children, in families, unaccompanied, couch surfing, domestic violence victims and many more who are homeless because of unfortunate circumstances.
When the average person thinks of a homeless youth, their mind takes them to a mischievous sixteen year old. The average person cannot see the three and four-year-olds in tents or five-year-olds crying from shock in shelters. I have seen young children, seven and eight, break down from mental depression. Middle and high school children drop out because the system does not address the life skills they need.
People have a hard time digesting the thought of Foster Care kids who would probably be homeless if child protective services had not come. So the concept of homeless children is unthinkable. It is such a desolate situation but we must address it. If we acknowledge the problem with good intentions, I am positive many more organizations will bloom once we have fully understood the magnitude of youth homelessness. After all, I doubt any one wishes to see children homeless on the street.
Does the state of homelessness in America seem to be getting better or worse since you were affected years ago? Explain.
This is a hard question. Innately I would want to say worse because it is all I see. However, I ponder if it has indeed worsened or if this is how it has always been. More light has been shown on homelessness as a whole over the past years and the numbers are rising. It may be a direct correlation to the lack of jobs, resources, opportunity, unstable environments, natural disasters, and viral outbreaks that force good people into homelessness.
If you look at the metaphorical glass with this perception it is easy to say that homelessness has worsened and people are as desolate as ever. However, the light has barely begun to shine on homelessness and youth homelessness. It is not like you can take a census poll. Most data comes from shelters and third party organizations, maybe some live counts, but most homeless people are ghosts floating through society. There are millions of them. Good people who have vanished into that world. Good people who are ashamed to search for opportunities because of sheer humiliation, and those who do realize there are few to none.
When I was lost in homelessness, I saw homeless people everywhere from all places united under one demoralizing umbrella. If you look at the glass through this perception, you could say it has not worsened but has always been this way; endless transience as far as society can reach. But one thing is for certain, I believe it is not getting better.
I do not have an answer for the elderly homeless or the veterans harassed on the street. It is truly a tragedy outside of my personal realm of control. However, if we educators educate the homeless youth, if we equip them with tools to survive life, mentors, support, and opportunity, they can then go forth and graduate college or learn a trade, start a business, and liberate themselves. Thus, ending their homelessness themselves and hopefully their future offspring, materializing a new legacy.
I am a huge believer of “teach a man to fish, he can eat for a lifetime.” If we try and save kids, they will be rescued momentarily. If we assist them in saving themselves, they will forever be free. But, they cannot achieve success alone.
