Wow, what a month July 2012 was! So much going on; Discovering, Transforming, Awakening, and Integrating, generally, all at the same time (just like life )!
We hosted a couple of different workshops, and also attended a couple of very big happenings in Toronto.
First, on July 7th, we hosted Jane Bell, of Presence of Heart. Jane created an amazing workshop entitled ‘The Alchemy of Manifestation.’ The depth, quantity, and quality of Discoveries during this workshop started some amazing Transformations and Awakening in my life (as well as those of the other participants).
These new resources were not yet even close to being consciously, fully Integrated, when the next evening, I attended Prem Rawat’s, (a.k.a. Maharaji), Toronto visit to Roy Thomson Hall. The message of inner connection to love, peace, ease, and joy, was a magnificent continuation of the themes that had surfaced the night before at Jane’s workshop.
After Maharaji’s visit, we had about a week to begin to Integrate these two experiences, before our next guest arrived (more on Mana in our next post), and we attended Amma’s visit to Toronto as well (also in the next post).
So, how is all of this a microcosm of life?
I had been feeling in my life that I needed to Discover more inside of me, rather than looking for the answers outside of myself. I know that looking for love, peace, joy, etc, outside of myself has not really worked for me in the past. I was looking for ways to re-member these aspects of myself, from the inside-out (just like the chiropractic philosophy!).
This was truly the Laws of Attraction (there are many sources of info on LOA; this is my preferred source) in practice! I committed to attending these events, thought and felt more connected in myself with peace, ease, joy, and love, and the structure of my life started to change: my relationship with myself became easier (way more positive thoughts and self-talk), my relationship with my family began to change (way more ease), my relationship with my girlfriend became more loving, caring, and full of ease, and my relationship with my practice has become more ‘effortless;’ it feels like the actions I’m taking are in the flow and have more inherent power, rather than force.
The cool part is, people around me are noticing the differences too; I’m more relaxed, at ease, less forceful, etc. So again, it changes the structure of my life and relationships, as others are now able to interact with me in ways I wasn’t able to before. How cool is that? This is what “[being the change you wish to see in the world]” is all about.
So, what can you see differently in yourself? What can you hear that you haven’t heard before? What can you feel more fully? What can you perceive and understand differently? I invite you to play with these themes in your life…
Check in with us next week and I’ll tell you all about a journey to the centre of me and a hug that has taken me from an open mind to an open heart…
