Life Teacher, Healer, Singer, Lover.
We had yet another wonderful Big Glow retreat at NaMestoy Farms in North Georgia in December 2016, and this one was a powerful exploration of love, light and oneness.
“Each retreat is unique and a result of our collective intentions.”
Each retreat is unique and a result of our collective intentions. We sang, danced, played, shared, cuddled, dined, breathed and toned together for what proved to be a truly enriching time. Check out some of the photos and talking points from the retreat below.
“We’re one and the same.”
“ONE AND THE SAME” BY JOHN STRINGER
Of the many retreat highlights, one I’d like to share about is the talk Kathy and I lead on manfiesting relationships.
Before the retreat, we both asked spirit what was best and highest to share and what we both individually received made for a very non-typical relationship talk.
For your benefit, and by request of some of the attendees, I’m sharing what we read to begin the talk here:
What Kathy Received:
You must define what living a life without attachments looks like. You can use your own life examples and rely on John for a more in depth view.
You must define what real love is . Love of the spirit , love of connectedness to all and explain that real love will never fade. Love of all will never change so there is no need to hold on so tightly.
The temporal love that comes & goes as anger, resentment and insecurity arise will fade so by letting go of the attachment to this kind of love you step into true freedom. You live in the moment in pure gratitude of the now with no expectation of the future. The now is real. The now is a gift. Be here now!!
What I Received:
There are several things to teach about relationships. First, relationships begin with how you relate to your true self, your true nature as essence. This is the foundation upon which all else extends from.
If you believe you are a body, you relate to your self delusionally and all other relationships will mirror this illusion. Attachment to this false identity begets fear due to its temporal nature. The body is temporary and merely an illusion, subject to change and eventual disuse in most cases. Thus, attachment is caused by misidentification and breeds fear and perceived threats. The truth, of course, is you are the essence of life, consciousness, not the body.
This correct perception allows you to feel peace in the midst of any appearance of threat or harm instead of projecting your fear upon what you perceive as the other. All life is an extension of you at your essence, not the illusion of you that you identify with. That identity is just one of many characters you are playing. Yes.
This leads to the next lesson. By rightly identifying your Self as the essence, consciousness, you not only move beyond fear but see all as an extension of you and accept it with love. You recognize there is no harm, there is no reason for guilt, there is no lack or limitation and there is no real threat or darkness to be feared. No loss. No reason for disappointment. No harm. No real change for only what is unreal changes.
You are changeless, harmless and pure, so when you relate to yourself this way, you see the apparent other as yourself. You see the apparent other as sinless, changeless, holy and loving / loveable as yourself. Endowed with everything, as everything.
This is the foundation of a loving relationship with your Self.
All other relationships are a result of illusion and the belief in them and attachment to them is the cause of all sorts of suffering.
All of the Big Glow retreats we’ve hosted with Brian Peirgrossi have sold out and been powerful times of recognition and realization. We’re planing more for 2017!
Kathy and I are also planning an upcoming songwriting retreat where we’ll assist those interested in writing high vibrational songs, along with an “Exploring Genius” retreat where we’ll teach metods to listen to spirit and get the information you need on your journey.
