Last month I attended a Prosperity Retreat in Mentone, AL. My mom mentioned wanting to go and asked if I'd like to join. She didn't have to ask me twice. I wasn't thinking of anything other than the prospect of sleeping through the night for 2 nights in a row. I love my baby so much but this waking up during the night thing is taking it's toll. She could have signed me up for just about anything if it promised sleep as part of the experience. Neither one of us knew what we were getting into...
Edwene Gaines is a best selling author, an incredible speaker, and one of the warmest souls I have ever met. She leads leads retreats and gives talks on Prosperity, Transformation and Personal Power. Y'all, she's good! Like, real good!
I want to write all about my experience but I just don't think I can do it justice. Let me say this: If you are looking for your purpose, need a gentle but firm push in the right direction, and are comfortable with a God/Divine Spirit based message, check Edwene out! I cried the whole weekend because I walked into a room full of 28 other individuals who somehow understood what I've been feeling, who have also been seeking their purpose and trying to figure out how to become their best selves. I heard exactly what I needed to hear at exactly the right time and it was magical.
In this space, with the support of all these strangers, some details became very clear. 1) I am very interested in leading workshops and retreats. This is something that has been on my heart for several years but I haven't had a clue how to proceed. I got some guidance on that and realized that it DOES NOT HAVE TO BE PERFECT, I just have to open my heart, set my intention, and START. 2) I will use Sound Healing to connect with others. That little sentence is conveying a profound realization. For months now, the question has been: How will I share my energy work with others? What form will this all take? The answers to these questions came flooding in when I got serious about opening up to receive them. I don't read music, I can carry a tune if you give me a bucket. There is no reason that I of all people should be moving into the Sound Healing space, except the only reason that matters. Every cell of my body is moved by sound. It always has been. I feel music. I mean the vibrations take me over and alter my existence. In the past, I have said that I was put on this earth to be a "music fan" because all these talented musicians need someone who can appreciate their work wholeheartedly. After experiencing a session on a Betar Focused Vibroacoustic Sound Therapy Bed I instantly knew this would be how I share my energetic gifts with the world. I don't know how or when I will get a Betar bed. I don't know what shape this service will take. I don't even know what music I will incorporate into the sessions. I just know this is my future.
I'm comfortable with a plan. Usually, the more detailed the better. For the first time in my life, I understand what true knowing/trusting is. It doesn't bother me one bit that I don't know which steps will get me to my new goals. That is big! Maybe what I am experiencing can be called Faith. Not sure on that one yet. Don't really care to call it anything. It just feels incredibly comforting to know that in the near future I will be leading workshops and retreats and I will be working with Sound Healing in one way or another. Because I have said it is so, so it is!
