I’m writing this on the flight home from Phoenix to Toronto. We just went through a pocket of bumpy air. Normally I get scared in turbulence but somehow I’m still basking in the trusting calm of the heightened sense of community and trust that was activated at this weekend’s Divine Wisdom retreat.
Even a bumpy plane couldn’t dislodge the magic that remained with me from the weekend! I had decided I would be telling myself a new story about turbulence as soon as it began and instead of white knuckling it I imagined poofy clouds and a celestial rollercoaster with angels at the helm. The power of that intention changed my experience, which of course was the very thing that we were teaching all weekend at the retreat.
Coming together in a group with the common intention to remove all barriers to the authentic self was so potent. You could feel the energy palpably move through us like a living ribbon of life force energy activating our dreams and desires, melting away our differences and our stories of separation, shame, failure and loss.
There is nothing greater than a community of like minded individuals holding space for each other giving life to the vision of purpose, prosperity, peace, creativity and love that each participant brought forth to be blessed by the others.
It got me thinking about how our culture of distraction actually isolates us in the guise of connecting and how we need to foster our chosen supportive communities with discernment and focus.
I know when I think I need to “go it alone” and “ do it all myself” or “too tired to reach out, too busy, too committed” etc. I actually rob myself of the beauty of the statement “When 2 or more are gathered together in MY Name (Spirit, God, Jesus, Quantum Fred, The Dude, The Field, Goddess etc.) There I Am.”
The Divine Wisdom Retreat was all about activating the Spirit within, the I Am, the Source of co-creative power and true empowerment of the authentic self that for some had been long hidden or repressed by the stories of culture or family or life experience. It’s the group dynamic that acted as a turbocharger to the electrifying experience of letting go and welcoming something new. You just can’t have the same kind of experience by yourself.
We need each other. We need to learn from one another, to see a reflection of our humanity in each other’s eyes, to know we’re not alone, that we count, that we’re heard and seen, and to know that our presence means something.
It’s these gatherings that can light that fire and provide a powerful platform for turbocharging personal growth and spiritual awakenings. I’m always in awe and walk away so privileged that I get to do this. (so happy that I got to teach and do some mediumship too! Always have to add some dead people to the mix these days it seems lololol)
I can hardly wait until the next one! This summer I’m holding a powerful retreat called Uncharted (based on my new book coming out this fall). It’s all about activating the power of co-creation in uncertain times. I purposefully limit the size of the group so we can really hold that space for each other and interact in a more intimate setting. Whenever I bring new material out I like keeping the group smaller but still big enough to support transformation.
I was a little surprised when after just 2 weeks we had completely sold out. And people had been writing in to try and squeeze in, so I created a waiting list in case someone had an emergency and couldn’t come.
To my surprise that list has been growing as well! So much so that I’ve decided that I’m going to have to do another one of these events very late in the year, and possibly in the South West.
And the reason I believe these small groups fill up quickly is because we know that when we join together to transform, hold space for each other, the magic happens. The power of the group, combined with intention, make for huge leaps in personal transformation. I just love being there to both lead and witness the magic that happens each and every time before my eyes.
It’s such an exciting time to be alive and to come together to make the shift collectively so the individual can be stronger. There is nothing that compares to an up close and in-person event with like-minded souls who know there is more and are searching for a way to embody it.
So I’d love to hear about your experience with how being in a group or community has supported your dreams!
What is your group, and how do they help support you?
Sending you so much love
