WELCOME TO BELLAWORLD!
First things, first!
THANK YOU FOR SHOWING UP.

What's the story, Morning Glory?
There's a long and a short version.

Short Version:
I live in a world of my own creation, and so do you.
Since that's true, why not join forces and create
THE most beautiful, magical, fun, easy, free world -- together?!

This BellaWorld/Patreon space is all about uniting a sparkly-shiny Tribe Of Bellas, joyfully supporting and inspiring and loving one another.

All for one, and one, for all!

Welcome To My (Bella)World,


ANI

BELLAWORLDBELLAWORLDBELLAWORLDBELLAWORLDBELLAWORLDBELLAWORLD



Long Version:
BellaWorld's my vision of the way our beautiful world can be.   
It's premised on the fact that we all deserve to thrive. 
Not just scrape by, not merely do 'well enough' -- THRIVE
And not just some of us -- ALL OF US (including YOU).

YES!  We deserve all the goodies Life has to offer,
and Life stands more than ready to deliver!

Why then, you ask, do Life's goodies tend to shimmer and shine off in the distance, like a mirage, while here you are, crawling through the desert, just trying to keep the sand outta your privates?

Good question.

It's one I took years and great pains (literally) to answer for myself, and after shakin' what feels like the entire Mojave outta my shorts, I'm ready to share what I've learned.

If YOU wanna live in a world where you've the freedom to do what you want (when and how you wanna do it), and you want to create a life in which you feel safe and your trust in The Universe is rock-solid, you're valued for your unique talents, unafraid to take BIG risks, and you've all the love and well-being and joy and ca$h and free time and friends/family and community and adventure you could possibly ever imagine, I officially crown you Bella Extraordinaire and declare with every confidence --
YOU ARE IN THE DIVINE RIGHT PLACE.


THAT'S what this lovely little community's all about:
Our journey to BellaWorld, together.  :)

Lucky for you, I know the route well, I've done most of the trailblazing gruntwork -- ergo, you won't have as hard and scary a time as I did getting to BellaWorld, plus you'll have me and the rest of our Tribe to keep you company along the way!  

Alas, to make the journey, you must be willing to develop radical imagination and pledge allegiance to all the bountiful possibilities rather than the limitations you've been taught to place upon yourself.  You have to decide BellaWorld's where you truly wanna go, pack your bags, risk that first step -- you may even have to gut-it through more than a few scared-silly-painful-insufferable moments.  Plus, you'll have to invest resources and expend lots of energy to make the trip, for yourself.  But, if you join our BellaWorld Tribe, you won't have to go it alone. 

We can do this, together. 

So, I invite you to get comfy, read a few posts, take part in the fun, add comments, ask questions, explore Bella-Perks (sidebar to the right), and once you've made the decision to join us for the journey of our lifetimes, we ask that you commit to an investment in yourself and our Tribe with a $1 monthly donation. 

You read that right -- a dollar a month!  That 12 bucks a year will enable me to continue doing the joyful work of BellaWorld, growing our community, plus offering plenty of Bella-Perks to The Tribe.

Speaking of, the more the merrier!  Please tweet, post, share, invite, and talk to everyone you know about BellaWorld -- the more patrons we have, the more services, gifts, support, events, and $$$ we'll be able to share -- and the closer we'll get to our goal of creating a world that works, for EVERYONE.

LOVELOVELOVE,

ANI BELL
Creative Genius (just like YOU!),
BellaWorld


P.S. My writing + #ThisIsBellaWorld (videos) + Bella-Talks (podcasts) are published for public enjoyment, and I encourage Bellas to share, share, share!  Opportunities to receive Bella-Perks are for Patrons Only and will be announced in posts on this page.  Be sure to provide your email so you'll get alerts!
[Your personal information will never be shared, PERIOD.]

We'll be adding Bella-Perks along the way, with everything from T-shirts and other creative BellaWorld swag to my new book (slated for possible release in 2019!), plus other fun ways to engage with the Tribe:

  • Bright Idea Parties -- if you've never been to one, you're in for a dream-come-true TREAT!! More magical details TBA!
  • Jubilation Jubilee! -- Bellas gather to share inspiring examples of manifesting triumphs and our own personal experiences with the magical synchronicity of The Universe. YES!

As our Tribe thrives, we plan for the Community page to be utilized by Bellas to share their gifts, ideas, and knowledge, so everyone can be a part of the joyful and ever-flowing river of abundance!  YES!

Good Friend  :)

I revel in rebellion and innovation, naps, putting my bare feet in the grass, dancing-dancing-dancing, doing Classical Stretch, the amazing 'race' of life (slow 'n steady's my MO these days), daytrippin', thrift shoppin', frequent houseguests, reading fabulous books, taking walks, the occasional exotic travel adventure  — and watching people, birds, films, reality TV (some of it, anyways), sunsets, flowers, and all things vibrant and colorful.  I'm passionate about tiny and treehouse living (planning to build my own and create a village someday!), organic gardening, Mother Nature, social justice, and FREE TIME. 

I live in a remote and lovely Haven, in Washington State, with my BFF (best feline friend), Preacher Man Luke, and a menagerie of butterflies and honeybees and frogs and birds and squirrels and chipmunks and raccoons and coyotes and deer, plus bears and bobcats and mountain lions
-- Oh my!




Tiers
BELLA-PEEPS!
$1 or more per month
The bounty of BellaWorld is accessible to EVERYONE, and to prove that point, $1 per month is all it takes to join The Tribe. YUP.  $12 a year gives you the opportunity to receive any or all of the Bella-Perks below (in no particular order).  What're you waiting for?  Go check 'em out!   


Welcome To My (Bella)World, 
ANI


P.S. We welcome as much $upport as we can get! So, if your heart tells you to invest more than $1 per month, have at it! Thank you! Terima kasih! Gracias! Merci! Danke! Mahalo! Takk! 



*Please do provide your mailing address. We've got a WELCOME gift for you! 

ART-ROCKS
$1 or more per month
Art-Rocks are mini works of art painted on -- you guessed it! -- rocks!  Most are sourced from the Pacific NW, and all are created by uber talented local artist, Debbie Hinzman. They're wonderful to place on an altar, use as a paperweight, to decorate a garden, or as a touchstone by placing your own uplifting affirmation on the bottom. Best of all, they're one of a kind -- just like YOU!  Art-Rocks will be awarded by lottery drawing.  I'll post a photo when one is up for grabs, Bellas'll notify me in comments if they'd like a chance to win, and we'll draw names out of a hat! Just like that!  
ARTSY ACORNS!
$1 or more per month
Ahhh, the awesome acorn! SUCH a divine metaphor for the unlimited potential in each of us, as the following quotes demonstrate:


“Our ordinary mind always tries to persuade us that we are nothing but  acorns and that our greatest happiness will be to become bigger, fatter, shinier acorns; but that is of interest only to pigs. Our faith gives us knowledge of something better -- that we can become oak trees.” 

~ E. F.  Schumacher


“The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.” 

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson 


My path crossed last year with artist Katie Way, who crafts these little works of Acorn-Art by hand! They're a colorful, creative, and inspiring addition to any altar or reading nook, and they remind me that my size -- and where I'm at on my journey -- matters not. Because really BIG things come in very small packages! 


Periodically, Artsy-Acorns will be gifted from a pool of Tribe members who've made regular/frequent comments on our BellaWorld page.  Being engaged and involved has LOTS of rewards! YES! 

GOOD JU-JU COACHING SESSIONS
$1 or more per month
Coaching Sessions are 30 to 90 minute sessions, by phone, with me, Ani Bell aka Good Ju-Ju Guru! Coaching since 2002, I trained with Thomas Leonard, the 'grandfather' of coaching (he coined the term!) and am certified by Oprah's esteemed coach, bestselling author, and columnist for O Magazine, Martha Beck. Opportunities to receive Good Ju-Ju Sessions will be posted periodically and awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. 
INTUITIVE READINGS
$1 or more per month
For intuitive insights that'll answer your deepest questions and provide guidance and reassurance along your path, I offer Akashic Record and Tarot Readings (+ a combo of both) by phone. I've been doing readings for over 16 years and am constantly amazed how accurate and affirming they are for recipients. Opportunities for Readings will be announced in posts. Interested Bellas will be asked to make a comment, and I'll trust my intuition to choose the divine right recipient from there! Get ready to discover some wild and wonderful insights! YES!     
HAVEN RETREATS
$1 or more per month
Fun, Ease, and Freedom are cornerstones of the BellaWorld philosophy. Experiencing these firsthand, plus learning to nurture and love ourselves, are vital to reaching our BellaWorld destination. That's why I make Haven Retreats available to as many Bellas as possible, both for individuals and small groups. Haven Retreats, R&R in a Pacific NW paradise, are awarded based upon level of engagement and commitment to the Tribe and to those taking clear action steps on their journey to BellaWorld. More details TBA when Retreats are in the offing! YES! 
NOTE TO SELF SOCKS
$1 or more per month
I feel like Oprah, with all my favorite things! HA! But, it's true! THESE are among my favorite things on the planet!


Note To Self Socks are colorful, happy, joyful + really great quality socks that have affirmations on the top and bottom! They're made by a family-run business, and I've been happily gifting -- and wearing! -- them for years!  I mix and match mine, and they never fail to uplift and inspire! 


We'll periodically gift a pair of these nifties to a Bella who could use a bit of extra special love and attention and/or is super engaged in our BellaWorld Tribe (regularly commenting, sharing posts, inviting friends, etc.). Yay!

FREEDOM FUND GRANTS
$1 or more per month
Freedom Fund Grants are awarded on a case-by-case basis and intended to empower you to CREATE your ideal world by following your dreams. Need money to take a sabbatical? Or an adventure to Bali?  We've already funded both these endeavors to support Bellas on their journey to BellaWorld. Opportunities to receive future grants will be posted when available, with a fun and innovative application process. YES! 
LOVE NOTES
$1 or more per month
Love Notes are one of my favorite Perks! They're hand-written, personalized cards packed full of Good JuJu, sure to show up when you least expect, to uplift and inspire when you need it most. Recipients will be chosen from our official Bella address list. Who gets a Love-ly Note surprise?! Whomever The Universe sparkles with glitter, of course. YES!
