I wrote recently about how it would be nice if, instead of being bombarded with ads asking us to buy things in our public spaces, we were the beneficiaries of uplifting messages that spoke to what really matters to each of us as human beings.
Well, on the way to host my Radical Self Love Retreat in Bali, I saw one of those messages. I had a stopover in Adelaide, and there on the wall of the airport as I was walking to the baggage pickup area, I saw the message:
“When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the aeroplane takes off against the wind, not with it.”
– Henry Ford.
This billboard had been provided by positivesigns.net.au and as far as I could see, there was no hidden agenda. The sign was not wanting you to buy an aeroplane or a Ford motor vehicle.
Amazing! I thought. Just the previous week, I had asked for this reality to manifest, and here I was, looking at it.
It was a bit the same process with my Radical Self Love Retreat, which I am currently hosting in Bali. I am having an amazing time, diving deep with beautiful souls who have come from Australia and New Zealand to dedicate this week to their personal growth. I envisioned this last year when I was here in Bali teaching at another retreat as a volunteer. I had a fairly intense experience at the Bali Silent Retreat as a volunteer yoga and meditation teacher, and actually manifested something else – by living out a core wound from childhood – which, through this lived experienced, seems now to have dissolved. But that’s another story.
The story for today is that this time last year, I said – well, this is great teaching these practices I believe in so much as a volunteer, but it would be even greater to make my living this way. And this is what is happening this week, thanks to my envisioning this, and thanks to the support of the universe in the form of my retreat participants.
Motto of this Story
The motto of the story is that if you need a reminder today that you are constantly creating your reality, and that what you envision becomes real, then this is it.
You are a powerful creator of your life experience, and you create according to what you believe is possible.
So, create from a place of love, knowing that if your heart truly desires that thing, experience, retreat, partner, job, and you put it out there into the vortex, it will come into being. Just trust in the process, and in divine timing. You are supported, and your visions have been given to you so you can gift them forward.
