I've been preparing for the show's second annual fundraiser and I kept coming back to the word "fundraiser". There was something about it that was getting my attention. So I paused and listened to what it was trying to tell me! I realized I wasn't feeling it, there was no connection, no live wire between what this thing is and that word. Don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful word, a powerful word that has the energy of "good deeds" embued in it; but it felt flat, outdated, overused and mostly it just didn't have the power or the energy that I've been feeling about this second year. I knew I'd still use the word as a verb but something else was working me over.
So I asked, "what's the word?". I grabbed my dry erase marker and started writing whatever was coming through me. It didn't take long at all for it to emerge: Dreamraiser. "That's it", I proclaimed, That's the word!" It felt alive, energized, real, truthful, authentic, exciting. It took the whole thing up several vibrational notches. Dreamraiser, raising our dreams whether we're raising them from the seed of an idea to its fullest expression or whether like a baby we nourish and protect it and raise it till it can stand on its own or whether we're taking our dreams in our hands, like a sacred chalice and lifting them up to the heavens.
Our dreams matter. They're the stuff of the soul. They're tenacious, audacious and sometimes bodacious. The Roling Stones sang, "lose your dreams, lose your mind". For some of us, it's that serious! And when our dreams are fueled by others who believe in their beauty, who share in their values and ultimately see the world the way the dreamer does, then you have a shared vision and that is a powerful force.
The Camille Conte Show is part of a vision to create a network of programming that entertains, inspires and uplifts people. As I roll into my second year, I'm humbled by the support needed to keep the show going and growing. Though I started the show believing I'd attract advertisers, truth is I love a commercial free program and hopefully you do too! Show sponsorship is still an advertising opportunity so let me know if that appeals to you.
In the meantime, if you've been entertained, inspired or uplifted by the show, its music and guests then be one of my Dreamraisers. If you've been a guest and have benefited from the interview be one of my Dreamraisers. If you think it's incredibly cutting edge to have a travelling radio show and host, be one of my Dreamraisers. If you believe that corporations killed the radio star and are happy that broadcasters can be independent, accessible and fully licensed on their own, be one of my Dreamraisers. If you see with me the paradigm shift that's happening as radio moves to the internet, be one of my Dreamraisers. If you're just feeling it today and want to pay it forward, be one of my Dreamraisers. The "donate" button can be found on The Show page and The Home page.
I'm grateful for whatever you can share with me so that I can continue to share with you. I'm working on a dream. Thanks for helping to raise it.
