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.”
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
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:
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.
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.
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!
