Celebrating “YOU” ~ Ward Clever


This week’s celebration comes from Novus (A true supporter for the segment of Celebrating “YOU” – thank you so much) and goes out to our mutual friend Ward. What a wonderful choice and again it is with great joy that we can celebrate another brilliant soul this week. In addition to Novus’s already kind words, I can tell you that we are dealing with a mastermind here. A witty, charming, and intelligent blogger, versed in life and a little bit of everything. You will be surprised at the variety of context you will find and might be in for a surprise here and there.

Please help us welcome and celebrate Ward….congratulations friend.

And here is what Novus had to say…♥️

Here I am again to say “YOU” make my day to Ward Clever from ( He’s a funny man with lots of ideas and a smart way of seeing things. I love his blog for his poetry, funny stories, Question of the day, and his friendship. He’s the kind of guy you won’t be bored with. There will always something to debate or agree. His blog is worth checking out, but I have to warn you that some of his posts have…. how to say…. Adult language. If you ever go for a visit to his blog, don’t forget to say “Hi”


We are the co-creators of our life and the time is now. More than ever are we needed to support Mother Earth and each other. Together we discover and explore our unique gifts in times of strengths, in times we lean on each other, and in times when we learn from each other. This blog started as an outlet and what I ultimately called my “Warriors Journey.” It was a way to document the ups and downs of my life, sharing my hardships as well as my successes. It showcased the struggles, but more important the ways of how to overcome them. Although we are warriors each and every day, I realized that having to be a warrior, comes from a place of pain. I decided to rename this blog, and “Phoenix Rising” now stands for the story of overcoming such a painful place. My motivation for this blog hasn’t changed and I hope to share inspiration and hope, to create a sense of belonging, a space of being heard, and connecting with like minded beings who instill a sense of oneness. We are never alone, and we are unstoppable in the pursuit of what sets our soul on fire. Who I am in a nutshell... 
I am an energy healer and Reiki Master. I am surviving a chronic disease that I’ve sent into remission three times since my initial bout, 15 years ago. I continuously challenge the status quo and by doing so I change my stars. I am a believer that anything is possible. I am a hopeless romantic and I believe that true love exists on various levels. I am an optimist that will always see the glass as half full. I am a dreamer, believing in endless possibilities. Not even the sky is the limit. I have jumped off of the hamster wheel, and I am writing a new chapter. I am chasing my Nirvana to support my most authentic self. This is my story, I am that Phoenix and I am rising from the ashes. Namaste 🙏🏼💙🦋

    1. Hi Ward. It’s a segment I started a few weeks ago. People can email me a nomination, someone they want to recognize, someone that makes a difference in their lives. Every Wednesday I post the feature recognition, revealing who it will be. It also lists how this all works. Friday the actual celebration post goes out that includes the actual words for the one being recognized. You will only find it on my blog as I am the one running this segment. You will find Novus’s words for you on the Friday post and the introduction that we are celebrating you in last Wednesday’s post. I hope this helps and congratulations again. 😉
