Creating Powerful Exuberance

                                                                  

I first encountered  Deremiah *CPE; this whirwlind of wonder a few years ago through the Inspire Me Today website and although we have not met in person, it is easy to feel the warmth and love that he exudes. I dare you to look into this face and refrain from smiling and laughing. I betcha’ can’t :) Unabashedly enthusiastic, bubbling over with positivity, he uplifts and encourages those he reaches through his artistry; graphic and through the written and spoken word. He challenges people to go beyond the beyond, co-creating a world in which we are all cared for, acknowleged and treasured.  May his intentions come to manifest magnificently and return to him a million-fold.

How do you live your Bliss?

Everyday I live my Bliss in Love with the intention of leaving the world better than what I found it. Often I am Inspiring and Mentoring those in need of peace of mind, clarity and an increase in self-esteem!

You are a multi-cultural fusion; how did that impact on the life you have chosen for yourself?

Knowing quite a bit of my ancestral heritage beginning with the European English and Irish, the Native American Indian (Black Choctaw) and the African has influenced how I see the world tremendously different than most people. It means that I have ancestors that come from  three continents that I know of right now. But when we understand that the oldest living human remains that were discovered came out of Africa we all must look back to Africa as our origination according to scientific research.  We are all just an evolution that has evolved from our planetary migration.  My look at the world is not without completely understanding that above all of the knowledge of my genetic connections with people from all over the earth I am tied to the human race in a deeper way still.  Because we are Spiritual beings having a human experience a person like me enters each day loving the human idea that we are one.  This has impacted the life I have chosen and the person I have become in a huge way.  It allows me to operate looking at each being as a person of Love who only truly really desires to know themselves as the Love they know they need and want to express.  Since my desires have always been to express Love it is easy to see how I have attracted those deeper experiences.  You can see them quite clearly in my life going all the way back to my far reaching military travels as a military brat. That life allowed me to live in all four cardinal quadrants of the United States.  While in Europe my travels were very extensive connecting with people of all cultures in many of these experiences. This is the backdrop out of which my Love for people has been weaved allowing me to display a beautiful tapestry with a unique Love for everyone.

What have you learned about resilience?  Why do you think some people rebound while others succumb to the effects of trauma and life challenges?

My parents were the first mentors I had who helped me to understand the importance of being resilient.  I learned about resilience from them while in poverty where I completely got it that one could be in poverty without making poverty a way of life if they understood how to be resilient.  Apart from my parents I learned to listen to the voice of resilience as it would speak. Resilience taught me that without FLEXIBILITY in your Focus and Concentration on the belief of one’s purpose you may Superstitiously IMAGINE that when things are Changing you are moving further away from who you should be developing into.  This is far from the truth of our experiences and why we even have them.  Resilience is one of the areas where I have coached thousands of people and believe we should be mentoring others to understand more clearly.  Few people rebound from the trauma of life challenges without becoming permanently damaged in their emotions by the experiences because they have a good VISION of their Purpose.  It is so apparent that a lot of people get eaten up and consumed by T&T…Tragedy and Trauma because they lose sight of their VISION or maybe they never truly had one in mind.  When Trauma moves in it ushers in the change that most people repel because they have never been fully trained in how to respond to Challenge and Adversity.  During what people call tough economic times many people faint and have hardships they never truly overcome all because they never were mentored properly to understand how CHANGE WORKS in our Favor! I have been fortunate to teach people how to understand this subject more clearly but I very rarely speak on it publicly anymore and even more rarely coach and mentor people on the subject. But from time to time I meet up with the right person I Feel is ready and we work out a mutual agreeable mentoring opportunity.

Please talk about your work with at-risk children, having been one yourself.

As a  child I grew through an at-risk experience that changed my life forever and drove me back deeper into my purpose of being intentional about creating happiness in ones life.  When you come to the edge of being on the verge of committing suicide you are in a place no one should ever have to imagine for themselves.  At 16 years old that’s where I was and I only go back their to help pull kids and adults out of the abyss.  I count myself fortunate because I have worked with at-risk children for most of my life volunteering, donating and even being employed to encourage them to a whole new level. So most  of my life I have been doing it on a part time basis until the past 9 years where I have had the ultimate experience of mentoring children who where at-risk up close and personal. I have a decree I believe that I say often…”Bring me your at-risk child and if they can Change I will be the catalyst to inspire that change in them!”  I have been fortunate to have that kind of IMPACT on hurting children who really are looking for a way out of the vicious cycle of being at risk to themselves or others.  A great deal of children meet the description of the At-Risk model but many of them are just as normal as all the other kids accept they need more love. Currently I am moving into opportunity’s to play a bigger role through advocacy and philanthropic projects.  Right now I am releasing a song called “Stand For Peace” that will make 24.99% of the revenue for record sales to causes centered around children who are at-risk.  

How did the CPE aspect of your name come to be?

It’s actually *CPE which is the acronym that I use which I shape the words to fit around every project I’m working on. Originally it begin when I was working in the Security Industry as a Security Consultant and I was known as the * CPE = Customer Passion Evangelist.  Right now my projects are centered around *CPE = Creating Powerful Exuberance.  

What does it mean to you to ‘serve exuberantly’?

Serving exuberantly means to “Please Others” not Focusing on one’s own desires.  It also means to give yourself to the aid of someone else in a HAPPY way (not holding back or giving them the things you like).  It’s not about me giving you what I think you need to be Happy but it becomes very important that we learn to explore what makes other people happy and then serve them in that way.  It is purely going out to please someone in the way that they love.

You inspire so many others. Who or what inspires you?

 I am what I call “Self Inspired” first through INSPIRING others…sort of like a gyroscope uses the momentum that started it to spin to continue spinning.  When I Make someone HAPPY it makes me HAPPY but it is the thought that resonates in me.  I know before I begin that it will make someone else Happy and that thought of Happiness makes me Happy which INSPIRES me to take ACTION bringing forth the result that adorns both giver and receiver to be eternally Blissfully HAPPY!!! LOLLL!!!


How do you stand for peace?

 I “Stand For Peace” in the actions that I desire to see exemplified in the world by others.  As Ghandi said “Be the Change”. So everyday I stand for Peace by seeing my self as a Performance Artist for LOVE & PEACE…CREATING IMAGES of Peace for others through public speaking, words in poetry, images in video & pictures and through my writings & interactions online.  I stand for PEACE by Living it and being intent on CREATING it first in my Imagination through visualization and then in my Actualization through Manifestation.


What is your vision for the world?

I AM my VISION for the World…when you see me in Action Loving people Unconditionally, Encouraging them effortlessly, Inspiring them constantly & consistently…you are taking in my VISION for the world.  As an artist I LIVE what I Believe and I BELIEVE in LOVE & PEACE. What is my vision for the world? “I AM my VISION for the World!”

Please share about your song Stand For Peace that will be out on Independence Day. ( Include a link:)

Coming Soon July 4th, The World Premiere release hit song by Deremiah “STAND For PEACE”…the only INDEPENDENCE gained by Lovefare

Bio info: Winner of the coveted Nightingale Conant “Acres of Diamonds” Award for the thousands of lives I’ve changed as I’ve shared my story of love. I was a teenager when I almost committed Suicide and gave up on life but now I’m so glad I didn’t. At the age of 16 after my parents’ divorce,  I hit a low point in my life. I felt like no one loved me and it really seemed like nobody cared. In that experience I learned to understand what it means to feel lonely and without love. I was lost in the valley of darkness and despair where I had to learn how to love me all over again. Over the past several years I’ve learned a lot of people have felt this same kind of pain. Mostly because of their parents broken relationships or problems in their own relationships. Any way you look at it, many people have been wounded and really wish they could love or find the peace that passes all understanding.  Well if you have felt this way it will be so much easier for you to understand why I’ve created two very powerful songs that will move us all toward LOVE & PEACE again. 
These songs offer us powerful insight and in the chorus of these songs the solution. They tell us why our communities and the world needs  “More Love” and why we need to “Stand for Peace”.  My World premiere release of “Stand For Peace” will be coming out on July 4th, 2011 beginning on my Facebook page Deremiah/Muscian-band page. On the left side of the page is a Green symbol with the words My Store…click on this!

    Edie,

    Thank you for posting such an inspiring interview. I agree whole heartedly that we truly need to have a vision for our life in order to be truly happy. We need to create a future that we are living into that is so big that we may not even know how to fulfill it. Only then do we stretch ourselves in a way and know ourselves in a way that we never knew possible. Only then do we truly fulfill on our potential and fulfill on what our contribution to the world is meant to be.

    What future am I living into? I am empowering people to live freely by living lives in which they are authentically expressed. I am empowering people to remove the obstacles in their way to discovering that self expression.

    One area that is key to our living authentically is to be able to understand who we are as sexual beings. We are free as people the extent to which we can talk about our lives. For so many, talking about and acknowledging our sexuality is fill with shame and morality. Who I am in the world is someone who supports others to remove that shame so they can live resposibly, authentically, and freely.

    I look forward to following your posts, Edie.
