09 Aug Good Friends and Community
I had just come home from Greece, where I had just led a 10-day-seminar on voice and musical creativity together with a good friend of mine. During my first day back, I was tired, happy, looking forward to rest and enjoying my two gorgeous cats, holidays and my beautiful apartment.
The next day I was rather surprised that my enjoyment levels had dropped and I started to feel like I was dragging my feet around all the things one should feel happy to do, like talking a walk, enjoying my meals, my spare time, reading books – all the things my mind had stored under “Yippee, holidays:-)!”
I knew that my body wanted to rest, but my mind obviously didn’t. That was the moment I got a message from my good friend Corinne, who said that she’d just heard my voice on the Internet Radio show of Ariel & Shya Kane, Being Here, loved it, loved me and thanked me for being in her life. She had heard things on this show that she’d never heard before and made a difference for her. I was deeply moved, had tears of love in my eyes, responded to her message with a smile and thought to myself: “Well, why not be supported by myself and Ariel & Shya, even during my holidays:-)?” I really didn’t remember what the Kanes or I had talked about; the title, “Your presence is a Gift,” rang a bell, though. I listened to it, curled up on my sofa and my heart opened up to the possibilites of life again. I loved it so much that I stayed on and listened to the next episode, as well! I was back in my life, in my now, ready to enjoy my holiday no matter what would take place – rest or activity, feeling tired or energized.
I can’t thank Ariel & Shya enough for the gift of Transformation! Their presence and how they share it is such a gift to so many! And what I rediscovered is what a difference it makes to reach out to our friends, even with just a little text via this wonderful smartphone. It’s so easy! Thanks Corinne for a lovely start into my holidays and for being there for me!
I will attend the seminar Creativity & Intuition in New York, taking place on the weekend of Aug 11 to 13. Do you want to join me? It will be amazing and a gift to yourself and your friends and the world:-)!
