It was last August when once again, I awoke with an epiphany. This time it was words. Just four words. This happens frequently so I ensure that I have something nearby to capture my thoughts passing through. I clumsily jotted down the words that came to me in this order “Reflecting, Feeling, Connecting, Healing”…..and fell back asleep.
A few days later, I was with my friend Jeanni whom I had only met a few months before. We may have just recently met but we felt as though we’d known each other forever. When Jeanni and I get together, the magic and ideas flow incredibly. One of our discussions had led to the idea of hosting a retreat and we both lit up with joy and possibilities. On this day, I couldn’t wait to tell Jeanni about my “four words” as they seemed to be a perfect fit for a theme of our retreat.
Our get together was fabulous; we never stop throwing out ideas, dreams and what-ifs. I shared with Jeanni my “aha moment” from a few nights before and she was excited and intrigued. She agreed that this would be a very fitting theme for our event.
A few days later Jeanni messaged me that she had something to share with me and told me that I wouldn’t believe what she had to show me. I couldn’t wait to hear! When I arrived at her place, Jeanni had a journal out on the counter. She explained to me that a few years earlier, she had been jotting down ideas about things she wanted to do. One of them was possibly host a retreat with someone. When I had shown her my four words that had appeared to me, she knew she has seen those words before. She remembered where…..in a journal that she had! In this journal, arched along the top of a page, IN THE EXACT SAME ORDER, were the same four words. “Reflecting, Feeling, Connecting, Healing”. Two years earlier!
We cannot make this stuff up. This experience validated that the universe works in magical ways. That there are beautiful synchronicities and no coincidences. That living in wonder, dreaming and believing propels us to places, people and situations that seem “unreal” but are very “real”. That we are always receiving “signs” to get our attention, to guide us and help us in our journeys. And that there is always, always hope.
Our “Spring into Action” retreat with the theme of “Reflecting, Feeling, Connecting, Healing” is planned for March 24 to 27 in the beautiful Naramata, BC, Canada. Jeanni and I will join together with other amazing women on this learning and growing journey and we could not be more grateful. The adventure continues….
In joy & possibilities,
PS – we still have room and we would love to have YOU to join us! Jeanni and I have been very mindful of budget and have made this an “all inclusive” event which includes accommodations, healthy meals, retreat materials, a welcome package, inspirational take-home items created by you, learning, FUN and growth for only $577. All you have to do is get here! Remember, being removed from your usual environment is more conducive to growth and learning……consider this a mini-vacation (with extra benefits) that you are so deserving of!
