My “Big Glow Retreat: Limitless Love & Light” Miracles – Kathy’s Blossoming, Intuitive Readings, Natures Messengers

Life Teacher, Healer, Singer, Lover.
This past Sep 10 – 12, 2016, we had a beautiful gathering of souls ready to give and receive at NaMestoy Farms for the Big Glow Retreat: Limitless Love & Light!   We had a blessed time for so many reasons and I can’t help but give thanks for the miracles that abounded.
“One of my intentions was that we experience miracles.”
JOHN STRINGER
It amazes me how simply coming together to be present, share, eat, practice yoga and alignment, listen to each other and music, let go of energetic blocks that no longer serve us works so well! My sincere thanks to Brian Piegrossi, author of the aclaimed book, The Big Glow, and creator of The Big Glow retreats.  Each retreat I’ve attended has been a catylist in my being more authentically who I truly am. Thank you, Brian! Just like our other Big Glow retreats, we all  shared our intentions during our opening circle, and one of my intentions was that we experience miracles. I’m grateful to have experienced several, and would like to share a few with you:
“What you’ve done is given me a chance to be amazed.”
“HOLD ME NOW” BY JOHN STRINGER

KATHY’S BLOSSOMING

My wife, Kathy, and I gave a talk on relationships, sharing the lessons we’d learned and been guided by spirit to share, and I was so impressed by her.   She used to have a fear of public speaking (though she’s done a LOT of it), and she seemed to speak so effortlessly and beautifully that I was simply in awe of her grace!  She also sang with me during a concert later on … this was the second time she ever sang with me that way in public EVER!  It was beautiful!  Here’s a snipet:


INTUITIVE READINGS

I received an amazing intuitive reading from my dear friend, Shannon Gill, and it both helped guide me to identify a wound I was holding on to regarding my relationship with my father.  I was able to immediately release it through aligning with Source/ God / the great Holy Spirit in that moment to receive healing / correction for my perspective.  I was guided to apply the very attunement teaching I share in the first week of The Abundance Vibration course and it cleared the issue up on the spot!

I also received a Reiki session from Reiki Master, Amy Catherine, that brought two miracles. First, she showed my her precious stones and I was drawn to a black stone that she explained was connected to the throat chakra and the corresponding oil for the stone was Frankincense.  I told her that made sense because my favorite body oil and incense is Frankincense & Myrrh.  She then showed me a zip lock bag of oils from Jerusalem, and told me that every time people pick one out, they pick the exact one for them. She said “try it.”  Before she even suggested that, I was already drawn like a magnet to one of the viles that I couldn’t see the label of, yet it seemed to call to me.

I reached in the bag, pulled the vial out and read what I saw on the label, “Abba oil,” aloud. I told Amy I’d never heard of that oil before. She took the vile and explained Abba was just the brand and began to smile as she told me it was Frankincense & Myrrh.

The next day,  I had the Reiki session with Amy and once again, she asked me to reach into the bag to pick an oil. This time, I closed my eyes first and as I put my hand on one vile at a time, I checked in to ask “is this one?”  I proceeded until I got a”yes,” pulled it out and handed it to Amy. She read it and we both laughed when she saidit was Frankincense & Myrrh again.

She also intuitively received the number 45 and showed me the corresponding message in a book.  The message made me cry when I read this part:

The Universe will be creating your reality according to your thoughts, whether you are paying attention or not, so having conscious awareness of the future reality you choose to create is very potent. Imagine a world of love in your thoughts, focus your attention on this as truth, and you shall have it. Know that with God all things are possible. This means it is possible for the world to live in peace and harmony, for all people to have enough food to be healthy, and that all can live in joy-filled abundance. Despite appearances to the contrary, this is Divine will for all human beings.

Your deepest beliefs will affect this process. It is good to be aware of the subconscious thoughts that run contrary to your future visions. Your thoughts are the vehicle to create a world of love and peace for yourself and all others.  Know that the greatest truths of the universe are that God exists in all circumstances and Divine Love is within all things (omnipresent).  Hold your mind on the power of God’s Love, ask for a miracle if you need it, and allow this Universe of Love to show you a reality where harmony and beauty are all that exist.

Remember: your job is to have no attachment to the appearance of disharmony but to hold to the Love within all things.

Holy Wow!  So many things were in that message: asking for a miracle if you need it (which I did when I stated my intention), non-attachment, seeing beyond appearances and more, which showed up more profoundly for me in the miracles below.

NATURES MESSENGERS

During her reading, Shannon also explained, among other things, that trust in divine order and overcoming my lower self was my current challenge, and that a transformation in consciousness was soon on the way.  I saw black butterflies the next day during a walking meditation – one of which flew directly toward me and turned back around right after I thought “I should look up their meaning.”

Later that same day , Kathy, Brian Peirgrossi (Big Glow founder) and I had a post-retreat meeting in the same room my daily small circles were held in.  As we entered, I saw the wasp that had been hanging out in each of my small circle meetings.  Since it was still in the room, I commented aloud “I think I should look up the meaning behind wasps.” Just like the black butterflies, I figured I’d just do that later.  Not long after we sat down and started our meeting, the wasp flew toward me and landed on my NOSE.

Black Butterfly

We all sat there looking at this wasp and commenting on how interesting this was and I decided to just relax and proceed with the meeting. Now, since I have previously been allergic to bee stings, etc., I kept thinking  “All is well and always is,” letting go of my fears and choosing to act out of TRUST that whatever happened would be divinely ordered rather than to acting out of FEAR and trying to get the wasp off my nose.

As some of those who were still at the retreat came to see the wasp, the wasp eventually crawled near my right eye and I “checked in” (asked/prayed) to see whether I needed to go ahead and look up the meaning of wasp totems.   I got a “yes,” which in hindsight seems pretty obvious, right? lol

We paused our already interrupted meeting as I looked up the meaning behind Wasp Totem / Wasp medicine and it turns out one of the meanings is transformation and soul evolution.  I went ahead and looked up black butterfly totem / medicine and it turns out its meaning is transformation as well; yet, specifically, “death” or “the ending” of something.  The transformation from my reading with Shannon was about the dying to my lower self / limited conditioned thinking / ego – something I have been praying, meditating and practicing toward for some time.  I couldn’t help but feel a great sense of gratitude for this very clear reinforcement.

If you’re wondering how this all resolved, after taking pictues and a video, we finally proceeded with the meeting and after some time passed, the wasp began crawling from the right side of my face to my left eye (which I closed to let it do it’s thing).  My wife mentioned she was uncomfortable with the situation (understandably so), so I had a realization and stated “I think the wasp wants to be let out” and Kathy suggested I go outside.  We all went outside, to see if it would fly off, and after it stayed there for a bit, Kathy, suggested I kneel down by a bush. Once I did, it finally flew away.

I later “checked in” / prayed to ask “what was the significance of this event / what did I need to see?” and this is what I received:

You received your miracle to make it abundantly clear that you are ready to shed your identification with your ego, lower self, limited conditioned thinking and identify with who you truly are: your highest self, son of God, Christ consciousness.  This is the path you have been on and are now ready to make the transition.

I’m sharing this because I hope it inspires you to continue your journey with trust in divine order, in divine timing and in your ability to receive miracles if you need them.  Love is all around if we open our eyes and ask / choose to see it. Let the Source of All That Is direct your path and give you what you need.

Ask and it will be given unto you.  Seek and you shall find. Knock and the door will be opened to you!

Limitless Love & Light!

So much good, so much love, so much abundance

So much good, so much love, so much abundance

I’m so grateful for all the good that is showing up in our lives. Granted, you can find talk of all the so called “bad,” but what I’m learning is what you choose to see is what you will see.  I choose to see love, I choose to see the divine, I choose to see with the eyes of God / source, through my Father’s blessings and vision he has blessed us with.

I’m grateful to share these gifts through music, teachings and whatever other ways I’m lead and if you are so lead, I invite you to find your connection to this divine love. Let it guide and lead you to where you need to be. Let it help you see through the eyes of love versus anger, judgment and separation.

I give thanks to the spirit the Father has sent us for the ability it gives us to align with that which is here now – limitless love and light – that which we are!

If you’d like to shift your perspective and take on the natural perspective of the divine, I invite you to join The Abundance Vibration Course and explore all the free practices it shares.  You can find out more here or by clicking the banner below.

RESONATE Mission:

RESONATE creates unique annual and semi-annual events located in urban Asheville, NC based in vibrational wisdom and alternative, non-invasive healing modalities, such as sound. Through the direct experience from inspired movement to deepening meditation, we offer creative environments for consciousness exploration.

RESONATE Vision:

Our goal is to inspire transformation from the inside out. We are here to remember and reintegrate our innate ability to replenish and restore our own energy. Just as the Golden Rule or Newtons 3rd law describes, we live in an interconnected toroidal field. Wherein the Universal Creative Intelligence is ever balancing change from the microcosm to the macrocosm. Resonate Asheville roots down at the vector equilibrium. Just as lightning balances ions in the atmosphere or as a musical note can evoke a feeling; in an instant, change can occur. From philosophy to physics, from song to dance, our goal is to create connections of collective synergy that inspire living joyfully from embodied wellness. Using informed science and cutting edge applications of ancient wisdom to evolve a more balanced and transformed future.

Just Be Open and always Let your Heart guide you.

“Oneness Through Diversity”

“Oneness Through Diversity”

I was blessed to ask for what was seeking to be birthed for my 07.17.16 talk at Unity of the Triangle and was inspired to write this text for the talk (see  text & video below).

If you’d like to review another talk of a similar nature, be sure to also see my talk, “The Path of True Selfishness,” here.

Here’s the text & video from “Oneness Through Diversity:”

The topic is Oneness Through Diversity.

This is an interesting topic sense diversity itself is a delusion or illusion depending on the perspective. It is an illusion when seen from it’s temporal or temporary nature and a delusion when seen as real.

Given it is changing and subject to transformation, by definition of what is real – namely, the changeless, form is not real.  The belief in it as real and attachment to it is the delusion.

So, diversity properly viewed can be appreciated as a great work of art that is subject to great change. It is an expanding work of art to be enjoyed and navigated with the awareness that it is simply art. When meaning is assigned and believed as real, it becomes delusional perspective. Not the diversity itself, for it is simply the appearance and meaning assigned, but the belief in it as real becomes the delusion.

What is the proper way to view diversity. Diversity is the more, the right of life to experience more. It is the reason source extends itself as you in various perspectives but do not think that this is the reality of life. This is only an aspect of the whole, the essence the awareness that you view life from. The meaning you assign is often largely delusional.

When it comes to diversity, you think that your cultures, body types, skin colors, ethnicities and all these other differences are real. This is what most would call diversity. Snowflakes are divers. Bodies are divers. Planets, stars, solar systems, galaxies, what you call species, all divers. SO much diversity. Yet the essence is the only thing that is real and that essence is the source, of which you are one with. Not two or billions, but one with.

You may have heard it said there is only one of you here. If you could understand that the awareness of your brother, your awareness, and all awareness is one essence peering through various divers individuated perspectives, and that this one source is you, then you would understand that the self that is real, the one source, is all that is real. It is you. The awareness it peers through is the frame . consciousness pears through these individuated awareness perspectives, if you will, and simply experiences itself as infinitely diverse art. Yes. Infinitely diverse art.

If you could appreciate this art as handy work that is masterful yet not real, you would be closer to the truth than you could ever imagine.

Diversity is what is sought as an experience of the one extending itself to be encountered and remembered in all its aspects as perfect, to give bliss, peace love, joy, kindness, compassion, forgiveness and appreciation in every experience. To be accepted as a beautiful play or dream and enjoyed through non-judgment and non-attachment.

This is not so hard when you let go of the conditioned thinking, the limited skewed perspectives that tell you something is wrong, all is not well or you are incomplete and separate from your brother, from all that is.

If you would deny this fallacy, deny the realness of diversity, you would set yourself free from the suffering, fear, attachment and sorrow caused by change of the form, shifts and transformations of the illusion.

For your essence , what is real, can not be harmed. Who you truly are, the one, is all there really is.

Consciousness, not the body.

Imagine a vast column of water infinitely expanding. Now, imagine one point on this column. This point is your individuated perspective. Your awareness is like seeing through a small hole.  

As you align with the source (which is the essence of this column of consciousness / your true self) – you expand your awareness and begin to see from a higher frequency of consciousness. Yet all the levels are you. From highest to lowest. The entire column is you and as your individuated perspective expands, you begin to understand that every aspect of creation – the seen form – is the illusion… and the essence of it all is you.

The source of all that is is you. You are an extension of this source in part and in whole, yet, you are here to remember this in order to be set free from suffering, free from judgment and self imposed condemnation. You set yourself free as you extend forgiveness to all that is. Any un-forgiveness held on to toward your brother or any situation, event, or anything in your consciousness, is a cause of suffering. Let go and recognize that only what is real is what you are. The changeless, that which cannot be harmed. This is the oneness and this is the truth you came to understand.

Diversity is art, the illusion, a painting. Appreciate it. Yet, do not fall for the delusion that it is what you are. Those who suffer are those who attach to the differences and create the specialness, create the judgments, the separation and the reason for anger and attack.

How do you appreciate diversity in practical terms?  The same way you appreciate any aspect of the journey, the same way you appreciate your human identity.  Know that who you have been conditioned to view yourself as, this body, this name with a story, is not who you really are. It is the role you’ve played. Yet you are the divine, an extension of the one, the only one, and you are here to know that everything else you have believed in, in form, is simply a beautiful work of art. An illusion, not to be believed in. Not to be thought of as real, but as a beautiful movie. Diversity is the same. A beautiful complex illusion not to be believed as the real. For If it were, how could oneness ever be real?  It can still be honored and appreciated, for it is a great path to learning love, lessons of forgiveness, lessons of non attachment, non judgment, etc. Lessons of seeing beyond the veil. The ego would have you believe this is real.

You may have heard be in the world but not of the world.  The world spoken of here is this seen world with the body’s eyes. This is the world that you are in yet it is the illusion. You are not of this form. You are essence. Spirit. The only begotten son of god. You are the divine essence, not the form itself. Thus, all diversity is the appearance of things of form, appearance of the world. It is not real.. It is simply beautiful art to be appreciated. Loved for what it is but not attached to. Not defended as real. Simply enjoyed from a place of power.

Once you realize you are not the body, and know that you are the one, you can take back your power and release the fear of death, release the fear of separation, release all the fears that plague you through limited conditioned thinking / or the ego.

You Can finally embrace forgiveness for what it is, releasing all that is – your brother, source, and all else – from the concept of imperfection and thus, free yourself.

For every thought of un-forgiveness,  any thought you hold on to of un-forgiveness or sin, whether toward another or your perceived self, is like a dagger hanging over your own head. As you forgive, you release these daggers and set your true self free.

So, your only responsibility when it comes to diversity, when it comes to navigating life, when it comes to being, is aligning with your true essence – source – and allowing that divine perspective to guide you. Allowing source energy to remove blocks in whatever form it deems best. Simply say yes to God, yes to source, yes to the divine essence you are and allow it to guide you.

You have heard it said, lean not to your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge HIM and he shall direct your path. I say to you, let go of your conditioned limited thinking and find practices that allow you to receive divine understanding, divine perspective that is not limited by your false beliefs in form, in separation and in sin.

You are what is real and what is real is the changeless essence, the powerful creative force that sustains all that is. Unity helps bring about recognition, amplification of this divine frequency of love, appreciation, acceptance and non attachment. It helps unite the individuated perspectives and heals the fractures so that diversity is no longer used as a tool for separation, but simply appreciated as the art it is. Like the Tibetan mandalas, seen as a beautiful works of art, each individuated perspective that shows up as your brother, is recognized as the one, the Christ essence, the holy and pure spirit that you are, and enjoyed without resistance, without suffering, without fear – forgiven, blameless and changeless.

What the form does is meaningless, though the ego says differently.

Only love is real. This brings peace. This brings liberation. This brings oneness through diversity.
