    Melanie DewBerry: Dark, Dangerous and Beautiful, Engaging our Indigenous Nature

    in Spirituality

    Melanie Dewberry asks the question: What is your indigenous nature?


    She believes that we are all indigenous - to this planet; to each other. She also believes that we are each born with a divine mandate tattooed on our souls; a poem written before the world got its hands on us and labels us.


    We all want to be witnessed; seen for who we really are. This especially resonates with Producer and Host, Linda Lombardo, who calls herself the Camelot era/flower child of two Edwardian/Depression-era parents; better seen than heard; neither seen nor heard when adults got together to play cards or have dinner.


    Her Power of Naming TEDx Talk reminds us that resonance with our name is powerful and starts to tell a story; we do not negotiate our gifts; the world expects something of us when our true name is shared.


    Melanie DewBerry is many things in addition to a kick-ass speaker of TEDx talks; she is a Soul Navigator and brander, a magazine creator and writer, a coach who brings spirituality and her Native American roots to the conversation – even in the corporate world. 


    She is Conversation Curator & Courage Cultivator. Melanie is a Speaker & Coach on Consciousness, Soul and the Love of Life. She is a lover of languages. Melanie is “She who lives with her Soul on Fire”. 

    Melanie uses the power of spirituality, language, words, and naming to remind us all how we belong to one another.


    Linda Lombardo hosts.

    SixEyes - News - Imprisoned NFL Running Back Lawrence Phillips Commits Suicide

    in Current Events

    Ex-NFL running back Lawrence Phillips, who was convicted in Los Angeles and San Diego counties for attacks on girlfriends and running down several people with a car, was found dead today in his prison cell in an apparent suicide.


    According to the state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, the 40-year-old former Baldwin Park High School standout was found “unresponsive in his cell” at 12:05 a.m. by staffers conducting security checks at Kern Valley State Prison in Delano.


    “He was transported to an outside hospital where he was pronounced deceased at 1:27 a.m.,” according to a CDCR statement.


    Phillips, who played for the St. Louis Rams, Miami Dolphins and San Francisco 49ers during a three-year NFL career, had been housed in an “administrative segregation unit” cell since April 2015, when he allegedly killed his cellmate.


    Phillips was being prosecuted in Kern County on a first-degree murder charge for allegedly strangling 37-year-old Damion Soward.


    Phillips, who was a top running back at the University of Nebraska, had been serving a 31-year sentence for his Southern California crimes, including a 2005 conviction in San Diego for choking his ex-girlfriend into unconsciousness.


    In Los Angeles County, Phillips entered a no contest plea in December 2000 to one count each of inflicting corporal injury upon a cohabitant and making criminal threats against his then-live-in girlfriend.


    Phillips was convicted in October 2006 of seven felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon for aiming a car at a group of boys and young men after an August 2005 pickup football game near the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.


    Three people were struck by the car, and a fourth young man was injured when the car struck a bicycle which then hit him.
