This year has been full of many good memories, but also some emotional ones too. This last weekend I was lucky enough to attend and teach a class at the Hope Interfaith Center year end retreat that was held at the Holy Spirit Retreat in Janesville MN. It was life changing. I attended the retreat a few years ago, and it was life changing then too.
As I pulled into the driveway of the retreat center I was excited, and nervous, and could not wait to see everyone. I was hopeful that this would be just as life changing as the one before, and I was right.
We got settled into our rooms, met in the great room. Rev. Janice Gorman, or “Hope” her name given to her by her angels, and what I call her greeted us with a warm welcome, and made us immediately feel at home, our spiritual home for the weekend.
Hope is my greatest teacher. I have attended the Hope Interfaith Center ever since I was a young girl. She has helped me and many, many others through good times and hard. She is why I am the person who I am today. She is my angel.
Throughout the weekend there were many tears, tears of healing. My heart felt open the entire time, and we all bonded on a heavenly spiritual level. We all had breakthroughs, and let go of and ushered out what no longer served us, and spoke of what we wanted to be shepherded into the new year.
I felt my emotional pain from this past year disappear, and learned that it is ok to feel your emotions as they come up. My heart was open, and full of love, a constant open love the entire time. But the truly most important lesson I learned was how to truly become your true magnificent self.
Your True magnificent self is all around you and within you. The great I AM, source, God energy is in a beautiful bubble of light (and everywhere) that surrounds you always. It never stops. Your magnificence is love, and it is within you. It is love, it is love, it is love. And being your true magnificent self starts with self love. Loving yourself is the most important key to life. If we do not love ourselves, than we cannot love anything else in our lives. We all have the power to become our true magnificent self. When we are love, others see that love and become that love.
Becoming your true magnificent self takes bravery. But when we fully step into our true magnificent self it is life changing. Nothing can stop you from becoming all you are meant to be, and wish to be. We are on a divine journey that goes on forever and ever, so make good use of it. Do acts of kindness that takes people’s breath away. Treat them with and send them love always.
As I pulled out of the retreat center and drove away, I thought about all I had learned, and how I have healed, and how others have healed and how their lives had been changed. I felt blessed and renewed,I felt happy for everyone there. I continue to pray for everyone there, and will remember it in my heart forever. There was a fire lit within me that I know I have to spread to others. I knew my life was changed forever, and this next year is going to be the best year of my life.
Blessings and love to you sweet angel!
