My Life – Full Circle

My Life – Full Circle

Several years ago, I went to visit a woman who had lost her husband very unexpectedly at forty-two years old. I was in awe when I saw that she had so much energy in her body. Most people I had witnessed in my life who had experienced the physical death of a loved one would have a grayish color about them, yet she was so vibrant and light. She told me about a visit she had had with a shaman who had done soul retrieval on her by leading her through a deep meditation and retrieving aspects of her life when she was fragmented, weary, and losing her vibrancy; this process helped her retrieve her energy. I was amazed. In just the way life works, I thought I was being there for her when in reality she was being there for me. I thought I was spending my time giving to her when in truth she was giving to me. I was waking up.

I did not call the shaman she had consulted, nor did I immediately purchase the book she suggested: Soul Retrieval by Sandra Ingerman. If you had known me then, you would realize that this hesitation was in itself a modern-day miracle. Up to this point I had lived my life by the paradigm that something was missing, so when the woman told me about something I did not have, the me of the past would have wanted it right away. In retrospect, I realize I was starting to awaken to my natural self, not pushing a new direction in my life but allowing it to unfold. This was a way of being that I had forgotten up until then. This was the beginning of being reborn into the me I was born to be: the healer and the listener of knowing when to do and knowing when to be.

I prayed to my Creator that, if my soul needed to be retrieved, to provide me with the means and way in which this could be possible. I called this experience into my being. I prayed it into my existence. I also eventually bought Soul Retrieval and absolutely could not put it down once I started to read it. It was bringing me back to life. I had a new map, a new road on which I felt the light was shining again to bring me back home to finding me.

Update: I was recently contacted by Sandra Ingerman’s publicist to be on my radio show “The Intentional Spirit”. We have never met and by divine appointment, I will have the opportunity to let her know the impact she’s has had on my life.

Truly honored and truly blessed!

Slowing Down

Slowing Down

A young and successful executive was traveling down a neighborhood street, going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar. He was watching for kids darting out from between parked cars and slowed down when he thought he saw something. As his car passed, no children appeared. Instead, a brick smashed into the Jag’s side…

Beings of Light

Beings of Light

We are not designed to grow old; we are created to grow up and out as beings of light. Some would call this the lightness of being or taking yourself lightly. Whether or not you believe in the Bible, when the Creator said, “Let there be light,” the Creator was talking about you. Even Jesus…

Are You Awake?

Are You Awake?

First, you must realize you are asleep, then you are awake. Then you must die, so you can be born. You can not be born until you die and you can not die until you wake. Jungian psychology I have always enjoyed the story of a multitude of people with Buddha wanting to know how…

Lesson of the Sequoia Tree

Lesson of the Sequoia Tree

The Methodist Class Meeting was much like the Giant Sequoia Trees in California. Just like the Methodist Class Meeting, the Great Sequoias “hold each other up.” They may reach a height of 311 feet, an age of 3200 years. They often weigh 2.7 million pounds. Their bark on the average is 31 inches thick. Their…
