When I look at the calendar I have to pinch myself. Can it really be our 20th Year Anniversary? Have we really been creating spiritual events for people all around the world for 20 years? Really??
Exactly 20 years ago in 1995 three very significant spiritual projects were simultaneously and unknowingly being launched. These spiritual projects would profoundly impact the lives of all they touched and function as a significant part of ushering the world into a new era of spiritual consciousness.
As fate would have it the Universe not only conspired with myself and my mother to embark on creating a spiritual business, but it also caused a synchronistic meeting between myself and two other individuals who were executing their own spiritual revolution.
My mother, Ariel Wolfe, and myself began Mishka Productions, Neale Donald Walsch wrote Conversations with God and James Redfield wrote The Celestine Prophecy. These three dynamic projects brought us together not only in purpose but in friendship.
In 1995 my mother (Ariel Wolfe) and I began creating spiritual events with the intention of raising global consciousness. We started in my mom’s dining room with just a telephone and a mission. We named the company Mishka Productions after our beautiful family dog that had passed away. What started out as a passion turned into a thriving company and 20 years later, we are producing some of the world’s most sought after events, attracting attendees from all corners of the globe. With my mother now in spirit, I can hear her giggling saying “who knew?” and “We’ve come a long way baby!” .
In a quiet corner in Portland, Oregon, a man named Neale Donald Walsch was at a very dark angry place in his life . He was jobless, homeless and saw no way out of his current circumstances. As a simple method of catharsis, Neale began what he intended to be a journal using a legal pad and pen.
Neale began furiously writing and started firing out some tough questions in his heart to God. As he wrote his
questions, he realized that God was answering them, directly through his pen. Neale began to take notes as God responded to his litany of questions. He started writing and couldn’t stop as the clarity and understanding of God’s words only seemed to improve, filling up many legal pads.
With the words of God, the book Conversations with God, book 1 was born.
Neale’s book has changed the lives of millions, and is a catalyst to help heal so many people and their relationship to God.
In the same year of 1995 in Alabama, James Redfield, was selling and giving his book away from his mobile office i.e. the trunk of his car. He and his wife were doing all they could to get the book into as many hands as possible as they knew there was something very special and transformational about this book.
James Redfield and his wife Salle, hit the road with their self published paperback book entitled The Celestine Prophecy. This book was a fictional spiritual adventure story, and was about to truly play its part in transforming the world. This book talked specifically about the power of coincidences and coined the very well known and popularly used word “synchronicity.” It discussed the dynamics of relationships between people and taught the importance of paying attention to the synchronistic events in one’s own life.
The Celestine Prophecy took the world by storm, and when a large publishing house took over the book, it soared to the #1 book on the New York Times bestseller list and again breaking publishing industry records.
In the course of 12 months, these 3 spiritual projects had begun. James & Salle Redfield of The Celestine Prophecy spoke at the first spiritual event that Mishka Productions created, and Neale Donald Walsch was a featured speaker at one of our events in the months to follow.
The question is, what was happening 20 years ago to inspire this spiritual renaissance? Do you remember what was happening in your very own life 20 years ago? These projects functioned as a spiritual wake up call for the world over and called people to truly examine their lives and begs the question what will the next 20 years bring? This question will be addressed and answered at this year’s Celebrate Your Life Chicago 2015 at a panel discussion.
The panel discussion is just the beginning of an unforgettable event. At this extraordinary 20 year mark, Neale, James and myself (Liz Dawn) will open up this dialogue at our upcoming Celebrate Your Life event in Chicago. This year’s Celebrate Your Life event in Chicago features over 22 compelling speakers with over 30 workshops which offer you the chance to hear from industry leaders on a large variety of spiritual, holistic health and personal development topics.
Celebrate Your Life Chicago takes place June 12 – 15, and along with Neale and James, Iyanla Vanzant, Caroline Myss, Dr. Joe Dispenza, Panache Desai and many other featured speakers at this extraordinary event.
As I sit here writing an overview of what happened 20 years ago, I am humbled and deeply grateful by the magnificence of the Universe. In allowing me to be the caretaker of this precious entity called Mishka Productions, I continuously strive to maintain our mission of helping to uplift the consciousness of the planet one amazing event at a time.
