This was a solo project I did with certain perameters. First, I wanted to use as much material I already had as possible and spend the least on new material. Second, it is essentially a tent, so I didn’t want to overbuild. My design was to create a mechanism of support that didn’t require heavy lumber. Third, I wanted to have total privacy from the street side without cutting off my view of the street or the breeze. Fourth, I wanted it to be completely dry so I could leave the rug down even in a tempest. And speaking of a tempest … the most important structural objective was to be impervious to high winds … short of hurrican-ish winds that I use my mental intentions to prevent as I have lost homes already to hurricanes. Then I wanted a slightly sheltered place for my Kalanchoes so they would not burn in the direct sunlight. But I wanted it to still be light so I used a heavy mil cream-colored tarp. This is the third generation. I did it right this time. It temporizes the passive solar heat of direct sunlight on the side of my house, making it possible to run the AC nearly not at all, which is wonderful as I can’t stand to be closed up winter or summer! I’ll stay out on the deck to 40 degrees at night. Best of all, this space in my house is positioned on a ley line and the energy here is irresistible. Just inside you will see my bedroom where I have a pyramid over my bed. Yeah … my interests are a bit esoteric.

I used to run a health retreat in my big, beautiful old home with guests from all over and live-in staff. I then went from being an alternative heath practitioner/life coach/retreat owner to being an inventor. As the house is no longer filled with staff and guests, it is far too big for one person.
I am offering a beautiful harmonious home for people of like mind to live and work together to demonstrate how living a green and eventually sustainable lifestyle can be accomplished in an old house within city limits not designed to have a low carbon footprint.
Also, I am offering the house and grounds with it’s unique amenities and qualities as an eco/organic/alternative health/fitness/spiritual business incubator for the participants I am manifesting to take part. I wish to use this house to monetize it once more in partnership with like-minded go-getters.
It is a beautiful, elegant old house in a popular eclectic gentrified old neighborhood in lush and temperate Birmingham, Alabama. The house has 5 bedrooms, 5 baths, has two fireplaces, hardwood floors, 2 claw foot tubs, 4 showers, a huge well-equipped kitchen, two refrigerators, a free-weight gym, a great workshop in the basement and much more. The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful and the backyard is adjacent to a park.
Participants living here would video and write about their projects, ideas and simple tips for conserving, as well as tying in the new paradigm/spiritual components of manifesting, positive thinking and that we are all one and need to work together that I have been writing about for so many years on my website … a voice crying in the wilderness.
I need people with impetus and ideas who are willing to take part in doing the projects both with good old fashioned hard work, digging in the dirt, online/social media/website/writing/videoing/editing/fundraising, ad infinitum … as well as a proportionate financial contribution. There is unlimited scope for creativity for POSITIVE enthusiastic creative people.
With the right people to run it, the health/fitness retreat could be re-established. If you come with some experience in one or more holistic modalities, I am willing to teach/train. Investigate my background you will discover this is a unique educational opportunity.
I am certified in Living Foods Lifestyle and for many years hosted a weekly Organic Raw Food Supper Club that had a loyal following! I would love to resurrect it at least on a monthly basis. We are in the process of doing a large organic garden expansion which includes a plan to build a 30 foot high pyramid greenhouse this summer.
I want the right people for this endeavor. The “right” people will see this ad and it will grab them. The “right” people will read it carefully and understand this is not a just a cool place to rent to live, but a life/career opportunity. You will further investigate (read the websites) and fully perceive the value and I won’t have to defend a thing … such as how I have priced the rooms. They are different sizes so it seems fair to charge more or less accordingly for single occupancy. I am providing 90% materially … and a vastness of intangible value as my contribution to the foundation. From there, together, we will create a vision that is exponentially greater than the sum of our individual parts. It will then be a springboard to a potential beyond what we can foresee now!
Two bedrooms are furnished ($700 and $800), one partially ($700) and one unfurnished ($500). Each room has it’s own bathroom. What is included? Utilities and wi-fi, access to the unique amenities of a health/fitness retreat, life coaching, intern/apprenticeship in a wide scope of areas of your interest from prototyping inventions in the workshop, living foods lifestyle (sprouting, dehydrating, fermenting etc.), cleansing/detoxification, a unique approach to fitness and diet, personal energy (spiritual) management, global issues … ad infinitum. PLUS, you will have an open venue to express your unique contribution and unlimited creative potential. In short, every goal you have on all levels can be reached and exceeded here. But you have to have the intention and the courage to succeed. My retreat guests paid $500 a day to go through the program to learn to empower themselves . . . so to live here and have access to all of the above for $25 a day is a pretty good deal.

Email and tell me about you and what you feel you have to bring to such a community as this. Please include your FaceBook page, LinkedIn or website. If I get a sense that it could be a fit for both of us and you are serious about pursuing a place in this adventure, we can set up a time to talk.
IMAGINE a world where we all work together. IMAGINE a world where we all THRIVE instead of strive.
My name is Jenifer Humming and I am an inventor. I never IMAGINED that I would become and inventor. It just happened.
Then it just just happened that I founded a crazy organization called The Global Rowing Club.
“We’re all in the same boat … so let’s all pull together!”
The purpose of The Global Rowing Club is to monetize my inventions, ideas and abilities … to privately generate the revenues to build a vast and all-encompassing Global Solution including a huge Renewable Energy Vision introduced in the presentation below. The profits from these Revenue Streams would fund and facilitate many inventors, innovators, companies and organizations that share the same vision for healing the world.
The key thing about this vision is it is a FOUNDATION I have laid in response to a powerful divine “download” that I describe briefly on my site under About Jenifer. The Cosmos drawings and presentations, the Revenue Streams page and the Flow Chart all represent a TEMPLATE to incorporate the dreams and accomplishments of MANY.
The best way I can explain it is that trying to build a vision starting with the first floor … or maybe even the second floor, forgetting that without a firm foundation, no building will stand for long, results in falling short of your goals — if not winding up fully in survival mode getting absolutely nowhere.
Most people, organizations and companies are operating under the old Piscean business model and the majority of individuals and organizations are not reaching their potential. Why? Because MONEY is still a factor … until it’s not anymore as we advance into the Aquarian Age. Inviting the funding from Venture Capitalists often, if not always, short-changes the visionary and corrupts the vision.
Are there deep pockets that are in sync with the New Business Paradigm? Fine. Let’s get them on board and still keep the mission pure.
IMAGINE what kind of world this would be if we supported each other in Love rather than competing in fear.
You may say that I’m a Dreamer, but I’m not the only one … I IMAGINE.
Please tell me if a harmonious healthy world is your dream too. Maybe we can help each other. Maybe we can pull together.
One can hope.
Oops! That sounded negative, right? I don’t mean it in a negative way. Who out there isn’t ready for a change? Why can’t it be a GOOD change instead of disaster? Gracious evolution of mankind and gentle healing of our planet has MY vote.
The image we see in a mirror is always backwards.
I have always been backwards. I’m left-handed to start with and it goes on from there how completely my outlook is contrary to the status quo.
I thought about this and Googled Contraries in the Native American culture. It’s worth a look. The Contraries were magical and powerful and shocked the people of their tribes into waking up and thinking by doing EVERYTHING backwards. People need to be reminded to do their own thinking. Contraries are, in fact, the origin of CLOWNS.
In Nineteen Eighty-Four, George Orwell predicted the people would be oppressed by Big Brother and deprived of information.
In Brave New World, Aldous Huxley predicted we would all be lulled into passivity by infinite distraction — too much information.
Well, as it turns out … I’d say TOO MUCH INFORMATION is filling our heads and keeping us from focusing on the simple essence of what is keeping our world from running smoothly and doing something about it.
It’s backwards people like me that instead of being heard … are considered a bit ridiculous by the people who are distracted and therefore do not do their own thinking.
I challenge everyone in the world to get quiet, clear your heads, hear the voice of your own thoughts and then have the courage to step through the mirror where the world isn’t backwards after all.
Take the Red Pill. I think The Matrix had something … only backwards. The “blissful ignorance” of the blue pill is really enslavement and what keeps the world in a constant state of conflict from the our individual inner struggles, relationships … to Countries at war with each other. The awakening to reality from the red pill will show us the way to realizing we’re all in this together and it will become our very natures to turn away from the absurdity of being controlled and oppressed to working together to heal ourselves, each other and our planet.
You may say that I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. If you’re a dreamer too … then
Each new site focuses on a separate aspect that until now has been all-encompassed in this website. I have called it “a variety” website that is simply ME and have stressed that it all makes sense and will not seem so “unfocused” if you take the time to understand it.
Really, do people expect a website that lays out a comprehensive strategy to raise the money for and to accomplish such a huge goal to be a short easy read? OK, I do realize that to most people, it doesn’t matter. We all click on websites to look for the reason why NOT to read it. I certainly have given people plenty of reason to run away! Oh, and have I mentioned I’m a stubborn little cuss?
Therefore, as the most common feedback I have gotten about this website is that it is too much information, I am finally chopping myself up into pieces to make things clearer and to compartmentalize for the specific interests of people; i.e., most renewable energy crusaders probably have no interest in rowing.
As much as rowing is a part of my life and my plan, it is also a metaphor, which is why I named the organization The Global Rowing Club.
“We’re all in the same boat, so let’s pull together.”
Each site will eventually be expanded by me and guest authors/experts to go into more detail, have more interactive features, offer more value for donating, give more concrete (less visionary, more “rubber hits the road”) information about actual developments.
The newest website is devoted exclusively to The Cosmos Global Renewable Energy Solution: www.cosmosglobalsolution.com.
Like this site, like the Quantum TRUMPS site and the next one I build for Health Retreat information, the new site is a crowdfunding site. Someone recently drew to my attention that I have been doing “crowdfunding” for many years (since late 2010) with this website. So now I’m using the word a lot … might as well come up on Google searches, right? Crowdfunding has recently come into vogue as the NEW PARADIGM way of financing meaningful projects without involving Venture Capitalists whose agendas in most cases do not match the purpose and vision of the creators of the projects. This is something I have spent already over a half a million dollars of my own money to avoid … and am reaching out for support from anyone who believes in this vision that has been given to me to lay a foundation and generate the funding for a lot of people, companies and organizations to join together to make all the difference in the world.
It seems I got started a little ahead of time (when I still believed in time). The world … or I wasn’t ready when I began the plan to amass private funding for The Cosmos with my first invention: “the medical device”. I hope we’re all ready now. Time (I’ll just pretend for a little while longer) will tell … but in the end, it doesn’t matter.
I love my new website/blog. Both of them, really. I hope they help things make more sense to the people who read them — the sort of people who will somehow find them because there is something in them and hopefully in this site too that DOES inspire them and give them hope for a better world. I hope they realize it would be a powerful action of intention to help, whether just to send $5 through PayPal by clicking the Join The Club button, or by being ridiculous enough to become a part of the GLOBAL POWER TEAM.
I hope, I hope, I hope a lot of things. But in the end … all of our hopes are just for things, people or events to lead us to being at peace. I am already at peace, so … it doesn’t matter.
To alleviate the overwhelm of the vastness of The Global Rowing Club website and the wide spectrum of information presented here, we are finally caving-in to the repeated suggestion that the information be sectored into several websites to target specific interests.
So, if you’ve clicked on a link from Google search results only to find some posts and pages missing, it’s because they’ve been moved to another website for Jenifer’s personal writings and videos having to do with New Paradigm thinking. It is a site that will be expanded to include many more features. It is a crowdfunding site like this one that is still a part of The Global Rowing Cub.
Please visit the new website/blog, leave comments, send the link to everyone you know who would be interested and please support this important mission.
My friend Eric Ray just told me to google Global Village Construction Set to have a look at to see what I thought.
I was overwhelmed with JOY to see what this brilliant man Marcin Jakubowski has come up with to give EVERYONE in the world, rich or poor, the tools to get off the costly-planned-obsolesence-techincal-go-round to be able to live a sustained lifestyle. It is NECESSARY, it is HAPPENING and it is something I want to incorporate into the nuts-and-bolts (literally) of what already exists in The Cosmos Global Solution. See the right leg of The Flow Chart and center section as well. In fact, why not take the time to understand the WHOLE plan and support it? It’s all mapped out on this website. It will all make sense if you stick with it.
I told Eric it gave me chills and that I could even promote it in the A L B A countries if the Richest Country In America’s Back Yard and I come to terms on manufacturing my medical device there. They want me do a promotional tour (already in the plan) in all of those Third World Countries and have expressed interest in the rest of the inventions and strategies in the plan as well. There’s still time for Peter Thiel and Richard Branson to jump on board. There’s room for all of us! TED, why not take a look at what we’re doing too?
If a hundred of you monkeys out there would step up for The Cosmos Global Solution like so many people did for Marcin, we all could take part in freeing the world from the bondage of “The Grid” that is soooo precarious. We need to work together now, before the imperative is too urgent or the Collapse makes it impossible. Why not do it while it is easy?
Please Join The Club and help people like me and Marcin, whose lives are devoted to MAKING ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD.
Watch the video below. It is well worth a few minutes of your time.
I haven’t written at all about sculling lately. There’s been nothing to write. I haven’t been out on my boat in a very long time. This is ok, I decided … after having too much angst about it for too long. I had to decide there was a reason beyond my wisdom to STOP me from pushing myself so hard physically for a season after too much injury.
Of course, I could blame it on treading in water instead of sculling on water (too much work and no play) and being fed a rich diet by a very good cook (my Venezuelan assistant who did not agree with my views on carbohydrates), but in the end, something just had to give — and for a while, it was my training.
I am supposed to be a health and fitness expert, which was great while I ran a retreat. Having all the time to do what it took to be healthy and fit then was easy. It was my “job.” I was simply monetizing my lifestyle by letting other people do it with me and pay me for it. It’s a bit more inconvenient as you all know when you have to fit it in around doing things to pay the bills that have nothing to do with preparing organic raw food, working out, doing sports and spa treatments all day long. That’s why I decided to turn my big house again into an “eco-community.” First to surround myself again with people who want to live the way I want to live and to have trustworthy people in the house to take care of it while I travel. And it looks like I’ll be doing a lot of that soon.
I have also been taking the time again to do for myself what I know I need to do to restore my adrenals, cleanse toxins (all you have to do in this world to be toxic is breathe) from my body, AND drop a few of those carbo-pounds that have turned me into a lightweight instead of a flyweight. My wonderful MAAS Flyweight rowing shell has a low weight-limit that I am slightly exceeding at the moment. :(
There, I’ve admitted it.
But all is well and I am still strong and fit. The important thing is that I am healthier now that I have taken a break. I am completely injury free, my joints and adrenals are happy and I am ready to build up my training again wisely and gradually — while eating the healthy organic high percentage raw and low percentage carb diet my body wants.
Meanwhile the bread-pastry-cheese-rice-pasta-ice-cream nazi Trina (she did love sprouting though … and I do take responsibility for eating what she put in front of me) is cooking fattening arepas for her mother now in Valencia, Venezuela and taking care of her after several surgeries. Soon, in advance of my arrival to Caracas, she will be testifying about my medical invention before the Ministerio of her country. She is quite familiar with my device (that she misses sooooo much being able to use since she had to leave the USA because her visa ran out) that the government of her homeland began to pursue last summer through a former colleague of hers who is high up in the current administration.
I say my arrival … it has to do with whether they invite me. They want the device, yes, but we will have to come to terms. My caveat is that it not be distributed solely in A L B A Countries, but in First World Countries too. That’s a bit sticky with the political climate between Venezuela and the US at the moment, but people need it everywhere. It’s a latin telanovela. There is nothing boring about my life!
Tune in next week to see if the much maligned, misunderstood and now mysteriously ill leader of the richest country in America’s Backyard will ever forgive the ALL POWERFUL First World Country of the Americas that is still giving his best friend’s island the Cold Shoulder long past the Cold War and just get OVER all those assassination attempts by the all-pervasive intelligence agency whose name see I aaain’t gonna mention, that may well have it’s roots in the dark past of the Es Es.
¿Y quien es el padre de Elena en la verdad? ¿Miguel? ¿Guillermo? ¿Louis?
Even more mysterious is how have I been writing all those long emails in Spanish to my Power of Attorney (El Chino) in Venezuela and understanding the emails he is writing to me. Do I have a Spanish Angel? Well soon I will have an “in-house” Spanish translator/angel visiting this week (perfect timing Universe! Thank you!) named Juan Torres. As Trina always said, my Spanish is good enough that I wouldn’t starve, but I’m not ready to go have in-depth conversations about manufacturing and technical things in Spanish when I barely know the words in English. I joke (but it’s TRUE) that when I began the process of prototyping my medical device, the only technical works I knew to google to find the components I needed were do-hickie and thinga-ma-giggy! I know more now, but I had to put myself through my own personal “engineering school” the hard way.
Juan will be here just in time to be by my side for some Skype conference calls coming up as momentum is building in the matter of manufacturing my medical device in Latin America. There are other opportunities coming at me from several directions spanning many of my projects and inventions so I will be listening closely as I am still in Quantum Superposition — as to which position to snap into next. But just so you know, I AM UNLIMITED, all is easy, and I intend to do it ALL. I’ll be making some big decisions soon. But I’m completely calm about it since all I have to do is listen. ¡Todo es fácil!
So will I be Local Rowing or Global Rowing in the next few months?
I am fully prepared and ready to go for both! Either way it’s adventure … so if you’re also ready and feel CALLED to a life of magic and miracles and FUN, then join me!!
As Jen has written, she, my dear friend Captain Butch and I spent eight wonderful days and nine lovely nights aboard the Chanticleer, a 43ft. sailing yacht, in the British Virgin Islands earlier this month. Since our return I’ve not had an opportunity to write about this epic adventure. Perhaps I’ve been in denial about being back and could not quite bring myself to admit that I am not going to wake up from the dream to find myself being gently rocked in my cabin aboard the good ship Chanticleer. Alas, it is true, I am indeed back in ‘real life’, on dry land. So, I shall soothe my land-locked psyche with reminiscences and observations about our delightful time together in Paradise.
The Adventure Begins
I impulsively invited Jenifer to join us on the trip before even meeting her in person. Her ad for a mini eco-community appeared right before my eyes on craigslist on a page I seldom visit. I went to her website and felt an instant affinity. I e-mailed her immediately to say, “I HAVE to meet you!” But later I e-mailed it would have to wait a couple of weeks since I was going on this cruise, that is, unless she wanted to come along. Amazingly, she accepted. She explained later she often receives invitations to join friends, all expenses paid, in wonderful destinations (Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Long Island …) and has turned them down to continue to work. But this time she said when she read the obviously casual invite…bells and whistles went off and she KNEW immediately she was going and that somehow all the logistics for making the arrangements in 48 hours would fall into place. She told me she had just made the decision that from now on in her life ‘all is easy.’ And easy it was.
Prior our departure…for a moment I was a wee bit (but only a wee bit) concerned about spending eight days on a boat with someone I’d only met a few days before. In spite of the fact that Jen and I connected very deeply immediately upon e-meeting, one never knows what may happen when one is traveling with folks, but my wispy concerns were quickly swept away on the Caribbean breeze and we deepened our new friendship to the point where I truly cannot remember when Jenifer was not in my life. It is as though we are long-lost sisters who reconnected (finally) in this life to continue walking our previously parallel paths together.
Butch and I planned the trip to be a vacation, and so it was. When Jen joined the crew as First Mate, however, we all agreed for the trip to become a “FreeWill” tour for The Global Rowing Club as well. I had been very deeply moved and intrigued by all I read on this website (though I still have much reading to do as I have only begun to scratch the surface) and I felt a resounding resonance with her purpose…it is congruent with mine, though I have been hesitant to publicize this fact to all but the few in my life who are of like-mind.
Yes, Jenifer seemed too good to be true. Butch had pronounced that she had saved our trip the first night we met in person, but we took her at her word that she knew how to sail and it remained to be seen. What I learned about Jenifer from discovering she is in fact an accomplished and knowledgeable sailor who far exceeded any expectations Butch even dared to have…is that nothing she says or writes about herself can even come close to the truth of who she is, let alone overstating or bragging. I did not find egoism in her. She delivered the goods and then some.
I had only been sailing a few times before with Butch, a couple times as a fledgling first-mate-in-training, but mostly as a novice deck hand / passenger. This trip was different; as the sailing lingo (much of it still Greek to me) flew between Butch and Jen, Jen would stop and explain the words and the geometry of sailing to me to keep me in the loop. She even spent several sessions to teach me a few ‘must know’ nautical knots. She apologized that she could only teach me a ‘left-handed’ bowline, the absolute ‘must know knot of all!’ Even Butch got into it. I graduated with flying colors when I could tie one in less than 5 seconds without looking!!! I learned a lot and advanced from novice deck hand and ‘galley wench’ to become quite a useful second mate. Now Butch is bragging to everyone he’s never had a better crew.
As we island-hopped along Sir Francis Drake Channel in the BVI, we saw many beautiful aspects of Mother Earth, taking hundreds of photos in efforts to capture the exquisitely pure beauty She offers. We also connected with several truly remarkable people along the way. All the while, the bond between we fellow mariners continued to grow in subtle and not-so-subtle ways, allowing for a very peaceful, drama-free (what is that???) experience. When one spends nine days on a boat with someone, one gets to know them quite well as closely confined quarters tend to engender familiarity, be that positive or not. I am happy that my excursion with a new, hitherto unknown friend was a very positive experience. I found Jenifer to be a deeply genuine person, consistently and vehemently true to and on point with her Purpose. She never misses an opportunity to share her visions, dreams, hopes and purpose with those who have ears to hear. She walks her talk. How extraordinarily refreshing and hope-inspiring…
At this point, I am still not clear about exactly where we were when, as we visited so many places. Jen called our trip: “If It’s Tuesday It’s Belgium.” But she is putting together a slideshow for this website and for Butch to present to his Yacht Club, and Butch will fill us in on what pictures were taken where so I can bring back into focus the blurry edges of my memories and put names to places. Or not…perhaps the magic of such a fabulous experience lies partly in the misty remembrances and all I truly need is to be able to close my eyes and have a soothing sense of brilliantly blue waters, lush green mountainsides, the gentle (and sometimes not-so-gentle) rocking of Mother Ocean underneath me, and delightful companions, to the soundtrack of Quito Rymer in the background, singing, “I’m going back to the islands….”
I now have no doubt I will be going back to the islands with Jen to assist with several projects our visit there may have catalyzed. I observed how she interacted with people: influential people as well as shop workers and waitresses who she treated the same…no difference in the high level of respect she showed everyone. She discussed the spectrum of possibilities encompassed in her plan according to the interests of the person with whom she chatted…with passion and compassion and was very well-received. I became even more convinced as I learned more and more of how much she is capable of co-creating with people and organizations to propel them forward in realizing their goals and dreams…as in every case, their projects are already on her flow chart of Revenue Streams. She truly is meant to facilitate people and organizations to be able to get beyond their present limitations. The biggest obstacle for Jen is exactly that she does seem too good to be true. Somehow, there has to be a way to get people to trust their first impressions of her and open up to how she can help them as “the benefactor of dreams.” I have the opportunity in person to experience Jen in the way she presents herself on this website…as a real person, strong and fragile, capable, enduring, unflagging in her optimism and infinitely willing to go anywhere and do whatever it takes. She has given everything she has to remaining true to her calling even to the point of being willing to lose everything. She is reaching out for help so that she can help. She is for real and my synchronistic discovery of her was a miraculous answer to my own prayers to be able to live and do my purpose. I will do whatever I can to promote and ultimately bring to fruition The Global Rowing Club’s vision of proliferating The Cosmos Renewable Off-Shore Energy Platforms in the seas and oceans of the world. This is a Big Dream, but I have always believed in my Heart of Hearts (if not always in my limited human understanding) that if it is indeed in line with the Universe, it will be.
