The Story

On October 22, 2013, I signed a handwritten contract with myself and committed to become a master of 16 areas of my life.

I am a:

Performer
Singer
Songwriter
Dancer
Author
Creator
Traveler
Light-worker
Millionaire
Self Healer
World Healer
Leader
Public Speaker
Partner
Mother
Lover

For one solid year, I read, memorized, chanted and ingrained this mastery list into my every day activities. I created it into a song to sing while exercising and washing dishes. I stuck the list on my walls, in my purse, and in my journals. I made this list the subject of conversation at parties and lunch dates with friends. In the winter of 2015, I took my commitment to self-mastery to the next level. My attention turned toward my role as director of the Million Kisses Foundation, and I began to explore the possibility of bringing the two together. This is where the idea for an enticing experiment surfaced.

What if I connected with 16 individuals across America who are mastering one of the 16 expressions from my mastery list? I named the recipients "mirrors". These mirrors have invested time, energy and money into their craft. Together we could create performances, workshops, and community events in cities all across the country. And as a celebratory gift of living their dreams, the Million Kisses Foundation would give them a little bit of kissed cash.

My thoughts drifted to a strong belief I hold in oneness. In an ideal world where we can see how connected we literally are, I believe we get to look with soft, fresh eyes at what we have been taught about competition, comparisons and criticisms. My truth is that the more I learn to celebrate myself, the more I want to celebrate others. So in this experiment...with the time, energy and money I give freely to my mirrors, am I not actually investing in my own commitment to self-mastery?

Yep, I thought so too.

This is an exciting venture for me. And you're invited to play! Check out the links and all the ways you can get involved. Perhaps we get to be mirrors too.

Celebrating you, Emily





Gift Economy


Painting: Root Connection

Two Videos (sent earlier)


Some key points are:

A gift economy is fundamental to most traditional and indigenous peoples. Instead of money, the currency in a gift economy is relationships.
A gift economy is not based on charity or panhandling.
Gifting sustains and celebrates the values of humanity, such as sharing, cooperation, and family/tribal connections

Giving is based on an equal energy exchange. Many modern societies reinforce the accumulation of wealth. In a gifting economy, the cultural norm is to share wealth, with generosity being most respected. It is understood within the village that the more you give, the more you receive.
The Million Kisses Foundation is a legal entity, regulated under the United States tax code which allows for annual tax-free gifts of $12,000 per person to be given. That means that you may receive a gift of $12,000 from each of your friends, without being taxed, totaling up to $120,000 of tax free gifts per year. For the most current tax codes, please visit: http://www.irs.gov/Businesses/Small-Businesses-&-Self-Employed/Gift-Tax.
Givers to the Million Kisses Foundation sign a "Gifting Statement", which is a legally recognized document saying that the gift is not an investment of any kind. Givers understand that the law of attraction within a gift economy is the principle law upon which this kind of global familial activity flourishes.
