Thanks, for checking-in to San Antonio's Law Of Attraction Downstream Meetup sum-up! :O)
Yesterday, was the Oki (loosely translated: The Art Of Energy In Motion) @ Crossroads Mall. It was just facilitators, Renae & Andries
(& their ten year old twins), Joseph, and I. We all started off with a game of catch (in the round), which got us energized and playful.
Renae, then shared how she had learned so much about joy in the contrast through her father's recent transition beyond the physical. She was in easy contact with his expanded self and really wanted to share how much more expansive and available a loving being she was in contact with now than when he had been physically focussed. Wow!
We then went into how exactly to figure out what to tap on when performing Faster EFT on ourselves. Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a way of helping yourself by tapping certain accupuncture points with your fingers, while engaging in constructive self-talk. Renae explained that questions that act as a great jump-off point basically come down to: What's bad about this? In other words: What am I afraid of? What am I worried about? What do I dread, in this?
Then, it's easy to go deeper and deeper down the path of "I relase and let go of the belief/feeling that I'll be lonely forever if I don't do such-and-such." (Or whatever.)
Renae also wanted us to know about brain researcher, Jill Bolte Taylor
, who got to study what happens to the brain during a stroke--her own.
At one point she could actually hear the dialog inside of her body. "I heard a little voice saying: Okay, you muscles, you gotta contract. And, you muscles, you relax." She lost her balance, at one point, and realized she had lost definition between her arm and the wall. "Because, the atoms and molecules of my arm blended with the atoms and molecules of the wall. And, all I could detect was this energy . . . energy." With a halt to the chattering inner voice she and most of us are brought up with, Taylor enjoyed many moments of feeling light, free, and at one with the boundless beautiful energy all around her.
It took eight years for her to recover, but she really wanted to share the fact that we could all experience Nirvana by allowing ourselves to be the awesomeness we can choose to be much more often, knowing we can enjoy a sense of private personhood again whenever that feels good.
Since, we ARE at one with the Universe, if we'll only tap into this, Renae and Andries had a little dialog about how to put this to work. We could all speak of tortured relationships that could be healed with us connecting the realities of our expanded selves. Even if the other person kept presenting us with "nerdy behavior" (as Abraham once put it), knowing now their real awesome identity would make it easy for us to keep our own balance and let the oddity pass, however often necessary.
Andries, then did some guided meditation/NLP work with us. Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) has to do with sharing information and modifying circumstances with the goal of activating desired changes in mental states. It's sometimes seen as hypnosis in which sleepiness is extremely optional. Andries touched on the "sleep hypnosis" element, in the guided meditation. When it was time to "wake us up," he said he'd count from one to five. Well, all I heard was "Uno, five." Everyone else was quite clear that Andries had never spoken in Spanish and that he had, indeed, counted from one to five! How cool! Hahaha! ;O)
The guided meditation had to do with feeling our expanded cosmic self and that of the person we wanted to make peace with and feeling our cosmic hearts drenched in white loving light approaching and merging. My sister was my nemesis, and I came out of this feeling we both had an enormous regal cosmic nature. I felt very comfortable in my skin. I was a bit concerned that the merging of hearts had been a misinterpretation, on my part. I had resisted it, after it had occured, unsure whether that was appropriate. But, I felt at ease, when Andries said he had actually suggested it.
Joseph had to go before we could get to Denny's. We like to get coffee, after the Meetups.
A big topic we chatted about, there, was marketing Renae & Andries's line of T-shirts adorned with words that generate loving expansive vibes! Typically, there are some Japanese ideograms. Okay, Japanese culture relies on the Chinese for this, but I believe all three of us have been touched via the Japanese path. I don't know if the meanings are always exactly the same in Japanese AND Chinese, so I'll say Japanese. But, these are beautiful. Usually, there'll also be some simple drawings--like some dolphins, a sprig of bamboo, or a Japanese gate.
The point of the shirts is that water picks up the energy of signs and words in its proximity--and the human body is mostly water! In any case, I KNOW I'd feel very different wearing a shirt that says HAPPINESS than wearing one with a much less wholesome message.
See the bottom of Renae & Andries's Peace R Us website
to check out color or black & white prints you can transfer onto a shirt. I see fully made shirts available online, very soon, as well! :D
Sunshine & Blessings,
