Back Again

June 11th, 2008

I was 'on the road' for the better part of May doing a series of presentations across the Province of Ontario home area. This was part of my work and everything went well. It was challenging being away from home so much, yet it was enjoyable. I find that I like the variance in location as it makes everyday seem so brand new and full of possibilities. That was one of our themes for these special workshops. It was called The Art of Possibility. We were focusing on presenting a new vision for the corporation and wanted to stress the positive nature of what is coming and everyone's part in making it happen. They were quite successful, but I was tired. I did alot of Lower Dan Tian and Snow Mountain practice everyday...keeping up my energy level so I could continue, as I was the main facilitator. I also focused on my Message Centre, keeping it open, flowing out instead of trying to 'present'. All the tools work, no matter what the setting.

After my work road trip I had the great privilege of joining Master Sha at two special workshops at Toronto Unity Church and Edmonton Unity Church. Both were excellent. Great response and again I was struck by the unswerving devotion and commitment of Master Sha to unconditional universal service for all humanity. He never stops giving. Having just come off the road myself...I knew how tiring it could be. He had been in Europe, Australia and many parts of North America, without a rest, and he kept going. Not only does he stay focused but he is enthusiastic and good humored. I was so impressed and inspired.

The people at these workshops received wonderful teachings and healings. They are somewhat intimate gatherings with a 100 or so people. This is quite special and everyone is able to make a personal connection with Master Sha through him signing a book or by receiving a download or karma cleansing.

During this time I was also the recipient of some new insights as my journey has continued, along with everyone else, and I found myself going through alot of 'testing'. As we are preparing for the Soul Enlightenment Retreat in Quebec, I was not surprised. Usually before and after a retreat people go through 'purification' and all kinds of issues come to the surface because they need to be cleared. I am no exception. With the support of others in the community I worked with what I was gratitude....and I now feel ready to take the next step...which I know the Retreat will offer.

This soul journey is quite an adventure. Everything that happens in your life is part of it and we need to understand that. Be it mental, emotional, is all happening for a reason. Heal the soul first and the rest will follow. This is so true, and that simple statement carries a tremendous amount of wisdom I am so, so grateful to be a part of this Mission.

Catching Up

April 16, 2008

It has been too long since I posted . For the last month I have been totally absorbed in a project from work that is also taking me to locations across the Province of Ontario, Canada. The organization I work for asked me to organize a series of 1 day sessions for all of the staff, approximately 1800 people, to launch a new Vision, Mission, Values and Corporate Strategy. When I was handed the task the two Vice Presidents who sponsored this said....we know this is really going to be a challenge but we want to do these starting in April...that was the first week in March. So I am now on the road having organized all of this and now being the host and overall facilitator for these events.

I have to say that without the foundation of Soul Wisdom that I have received from Master Sha I don't think I could have done this. Everyday I have been doing my lower dan tian practice, snow mountain keep up my energy and stay focused. Facilitating an event is one thing but also dealing with all of the logistics, the hotels, the room setups, the people, the travel arrangements etc. is alot. I recruited some excellent help from inside the company. People I know are reliable, hardworkers, well organized that executed the plan once I had laid it all out.

I was surprised at how clear everything was to me and how calm I was about it. When I was given the task I sat down and called on my own soul, Master Sha and Master Guo, the souls of all my shi fus and guides and Divine to assist me. Within minutes I saw the whole strategy and plan laid out before me. I put it all out on a flipchart with timelines, budget, and an outline of what a day session would look like. I presented this to the sponsors. I got the go ahead and then gathered three able assistants to help me make it happen.

The sessions, which started last week, have been a big success. I am so thankful to have the tools and the support that are at the heart of all we do in this Mission. Some afternoons, during these sessions, I have felt myself flagging. As soon as I could I found myself a corner in the ballroom, while the participants watched a film, and did my foundation practices. I chanted to myself, called on my Divine Treasures....and everything changed. People even commented at how much better I looked...apparently it was evident to some that I was really exhausted. It has been a great experience and there is more to come.

The other aspect of this is that I am a much better facilitator and presenter. I used to think I was pretty good but now there is the added element of 'flow'. When I get up to speak, as the host of the event in particular, I don't think about what I will just comes and it always feels right. I connect with the people in the room and the 'soul of the event' .....It is great.

The Business World is no different than any other 'world'. The best part of it for me is that it presents such great opportunities to connect with so many people. I can see their souls and I know how grateful they are for the recognition and the opportunity to communicate. I feel very, very blessed.

This is my first post and I am quite excited. I have been on a spiritual path for what seems like forever. There has not been a time, even when I was very young, that I wasn't asking about God and 'what am I doing here?' ....all of those big questions that no one can give you the same answer for. I was always very curious about everything. At the same time I felt absolutely driven to know more and that led me to do a great amount of reading. I studied religion, all of them...even though I was brought up in a Jewish family and had a religious education. When I was older I started going to churches and buddhist temples. I attended workshops, seances, healing circles.....everything I could connect to. That led, of course, to more questions. All of the time I was doing this I was also attending school, going to university and doing all kinds of odd jobs and some volunteer work. My school studies took me into psychology and education where I thought I would find my niche. Eventually, though, my path led me into the business world. I had originally thought I would be a psychologist and university professor but both of these avenues did not feel totally fulfilling. 'By chance' I was offered an opportunity to train some business people in communication skills. I had developed a program for my clients in the Addictions Centre where I was doing counselling and a colleague recommended as a speaker to a business group. I prepared for the presentation and found that relating everything to the corporate world that these people came from was quite a challenge, but I really enjoyed it. I had some business experience working in offices and doing some sales work when I was attending school but I had never done any 'training' before. The one presentation turned into more and eventually I was asked to develop some courses for a large corporation. This was the start of my career as a consultant. I let go of my ideas of becoming a professor and full-time counsellor and took my skills into the corporate world. That was the beginning of my career as a business woman and it has paralleled my vocation as a spiritual seeker.

In this blog I want to share both of my vocations with you. They really do intertwine very well. It has been such a wonderful journey and I am looking forward to sharing more.
