Grateful For An Amazing Beginning

JOHN STRINGER
Life Teacher, Healer, Singer, Lover
Well, 2017 is already off to an amazing start so I’d love to share what’s been going on and I hope you can join me for some of the upcoming events below.

To kick off the month, we had our second benefit concert for EliProject.org at Smith’s Ole Bar and it was a blast!

Thanks again to all of you who came to support and to Ashley Rivera for the great job starting the show – a beautiful voice!

Special thanks to Julie Hunter at juliehuntermedia.com for her wounderful photos of the night (featured above and below).  Thanks to my friend, Lindsey Turner, founder of EliProject.org for the blessing he is being in the world… and my sincere thanks to my wonderful wife, Kathy Stringer, for her support in helping bring the night together.

“It was a great event for a great cause.. and we thank you for supporting.”
JOHN STRINGER
BIG thanks to all the musicians who played with me as well: Jesse Owen Astin, William Delaney, Tony Belser and Levi Young.  We raised more funds to help the Eli Projects continue their work with special needs families… and we had a lot of fun.

CELEBRATION TIME— Both of my daughters have birthdays this week, so it’s a celebration of life in the Stringer household.

We’re also celebrating some great upcoming events, including my first time speaking at Unity of Chattanooga this coming Sunday, where I’ll also share music!  The lead minister there, Rev. Christine, is wonderful and I’m honored to get to share in my original hometown community.  Check out the tour page for details and join us if you can!

Other upcoming events include our Asheville Urban Mystic Retreat where I’ll join two incredible friends and teachers – Brian Piergrossi and Dale Allen Hoffman – for an exciting 4-day day retreat in Asheville, NC, April 1st – 4th, 2017!

This unique retreat will feature Stillpiont Breathwork, Egyptian Cacoa Ceremony, Music, Dance, Love, Joy, exploring Asheville and so much more.  Check out the details here on Dale’s site!

Also, Kathy and I will be returning to the mansion at NaMestoy Farms, May 5th – 7th, 2017, to co-host a new retreat called Source, Intuition & Spirit Guides – A Weekend Retreat!  We’re co-hosting with our friend and intuitive counselor, Arlene Moshe, who I met in Bali and was blown away and blessed by her gifts.

Through lectures, powerful guided meditations, and practical experiential exercises you will learn how to effectively develop your intuitive / “channeling” and healing abilities in a safe and loving atmosphere.

We’ll also enjoy music, high vibration food and limitless love together for this 3-day all inclusive retreat.  Get the full details here.

There is so much other goodness coming up, including many speaking and singing events I hope you can attend; a trip to LA in Feb. to train leaders on True Colalboration with my friends at BandingPeopleTogether.com and to play Agape International with the powerful couple, Rev. Michael B. Beckwith and Rickie BB – plus Hillside International’s own William Delaney will join me on keys… woohoo; and an upcoming concert with my musical soul brother, Bob Sima, in Atlanta on April 23rd at Eddie’s Attic!  Whew… now, that’s a lot.

Most importantly, I’ve been enjoying the recognition and realization of who I am – who you truly are – and it has been so lovingly empowering!

I’ll continue to remember and share what I’m learning in courses like the free Abundance Vibration Course and elsewhere, and I hope you will find ways to do the same.

In the mean time, please remember:

Relationship lessons from our fourth sold out Big Glow Retreat

Relationship lessons from our fourth sold out Big Glow Retreat

JOHN STRINGER

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.”

JOHN STRINGER

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

MANIFESTING RELATIONSHIPS

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.

NATURES MESSENGERS

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.

If you’d like to receive notice about our upcoming events, sign up for the newsletter below and you’ll receive free music as well.

In the meantime, I leave you with our Big Glow message to you:

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

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

JOHN STRINGER
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!
