With God all things are possible.
Wayne talked of this a lot today. Now, I have heard him speak a lot. But today this got me. A chill ran through my body, as it does more and more lately. A sign that I am paying attention to what resonates. Or that more is resonated lately? That I am connecting to things I am meant to be connecting to more often?
All of the above.
And then some.
All. Things. Possible.
So what does that leave out?
I love this.
I had that feeling today as I sat there in the second row as a guest of the author, my sister Rachel on my side. All the Dyers and Anita Moorjani and her husband wearing my blue Manifestation bracelets. Sara Blakely, founder of SPANX and the world’s youngest billionaire wearing my Manifestation bracelet.
Because: Anything is possible.
I dreamed this.
Over and over.
This is the life I want.
I want to be inspiring people on the level of Wayne and Anita and Sara. So why should I not be hanging out with them?
Ha! Wayne at my retreat? Pinch me.
(Who knows what will happen but… anything is possible kids.)
He told a great story today which I loved. He had just led a retreat on a cruise ship and he had asked everyone to go out and stare at the wake from the ship. He asked them to contemplate the wake. ( I feel a poem being inspired here already.)
The wake is the trail the ship leaves behind.
3 questions he told them to ask themselves:
1) What is the wake? Answer: the trail.
2)What is driving the boat? Answer: the PRESENT moment energy being generated is driving the boat. ( Key word: Present. Obviously.)
3) Is it possible for the wake to drive the boat? Answer: NO.
He suggested that most of us live this illusion though. The wake driving the boat! Ha!
I had such a breakthrough today. That kind of aha moment that happens before inspiration sinks in and kicks you in the teeth.
I think it is the poet in me that loves a good metaphor but, wow, is it ever an opportunity to give up your personal history, your crap, your story, when it is put so succinctly. So simply. So truthfully.
Another gem from today: Inspiration is when an idea gets ahold of you.
Motivation is ego driven.
Now that is something to think about.
I’d much rather be inspired.
As I am now in my life.
An idea has gotten a hold of me and I am being channeled. This is the best way, the only way I can truly describe my life these days.
Today Wayne said: writing is not something I do. It is what I am.
How beautiful a sentiment is that?
He talked so much about the “I Am” and I was so happy to be wearing my ” I am” Conscious Ink tattoo ( I gave him some and he went wild for them!)
Wayne talked about Divine Love as never changing, never varying.
There was so much to process today that it will take a few blog posts. Heck, a few years, but I wanted to share with you some inspiration and highlights.
Anita Moorjani, whom has become a friend, got up and spoke. She had a Near Death Experience after having Stage 4 cancer. She came back because she has work to do. (Thank God she came back!)
Her message, to remind us all to be ourselves, is simple and IMPORTANT. She says more important than being positive is being yourself!
Her book Dying To Be Me has been called, by many, the most important book they have ever read. Wayne is a huge fan of Anita, as am I. She is so incredible, as is this work she is doing. Please take a moment and read my earlier interview with her.
She will change your life. As she says, remember your magnificence.
As usual my friend Skye sang (Wayne’s daughter.) She added Whitney Houston’s Greatest Love of All which made everyone bawl, of course. Saje Dyer also got up and spoke. She is Wayne’s youngest. Adorable and hilarious. She talked (spontaneously) about how she healed herself at age 5 or 6 with a child’s belief system. It was so beautiful and funny and impromptu. Another Dyer with a big inspiring future in front of her.
Sommer Dyer was also there, who will be guest posting very soon on my blog. Wait until you read this Dyer daughter’s post. She is very special to me.
I met Tracy, his eldest and bought a purse from her amazing company Urban Junket. Tracy is gorgeous and funny. It’s like there is something in the water they drink? Tracy creates purses from recycled water bottles. Hello, Awesome!
My sister and I each bought one. Get one. They are cute and support the Earth. Hello, More Awesome!
Lastly, Sara Blakely. The world’s youngest billionaire and founder of Spanx. She got up and said a few words about how Wayne had been a great inspiration to her and was one of the reasons she is so successful. I gave her my blue Manifestation bracelet which you can see in the photos and my Manifesting tee. She was talking to us forever. To say she is cool would be an UNDERSTATEMENT.
The coolest billionaire I ever met.
And she is manifesting, no less.
So here it is:
I am manifesting:
Sara Blakely sponsoring my sister’s One Small Step Walk for Prader Wille Syndrome and doing a q&a on this blog, as Wayne did.
Wayne writing the foreword for my book.
