Last thursday I travelled to Phoenix and then on to Sedona, to attend Sunny Dawn Johnston and Emmanuel Dagher's "Awaken Your Magic" event.
Sunny has been my spiritual teacher, mentor and guide since 2013. I had a lot of growth in January and I was so happy that I had decided to attend this event.
Sunny is transformational specialist. She helps us elevate our lives and helps us attain our highest potential. She is a lighthouse in my life and has been a lifeline during my healing from cancer, during my leaving my old job and the grief from it and she has helped me heal my relationships with my husband, son and family. To say she is important to me, doesn't seem to be enough. She is a gift from God and I am grateful for her in my life.
Emmanuel is a newer teacher in my life. I have been following him for a couple of years now. Emmanuel Dagher has served as a transformation specialist and holistic healing facilitator for more than 15 years, guiding tens of thousands worldwide to transform their own lives at the molecular level by fully recognizing and instantly transcending the root causes of any physical, mental or emotional blocks and imbalances.
A natural born healer and intuitive, Emmanuel recognized and honed his special skills and gifts while growing up in the war-torn Middle East, where he faced unfathomable challenge and hardship on a daily basis.
It was this experience that inspired and empowered him to devote his life to elevating the consciousness of the planet by helping humanity awaken into remembrance of its divinity.
With a background in psychology and certifications in multiple holistic and alternative healing therapies, Emmanuel’s favorite method for facilitating healing and transformation is his renowned, proprietary The Core Work© Healing Experience.
Together, Sunny and Emmanuel are magic!! I went to this event with an intention of "fun, friendship, filling up, and open to receive healing for my highest greatest good, with ease and grace!".
I arrived in Phoenix Thursday, and had an amazing friend come to pick me up. She took me to meet friends for lunch. Anna is so generous and kind and treated us all to lunch. Then my dear soul sister Deb took me to meet Kendra and we had dinner together. After dinner, we went to see a funny movie. It was so fun just having girl time together. These are quality relationships and I soaked in every beautiful moment.
Friday we got up, got a few groceries for our weekend and headed off to Sedona. A dear friend from home asked me to take an offering to the Stupa in Sedona, and so Deb and I went there and soaked up the peace of the Stupa and the energy of the red rocks. Later that day we met up with Patty and the festivities began. Melinda walked up and introduced herself and a new friendship began. When it was time for dinner, we headed to the hotel restaurant and before long there were almost 20 of us together. In fact, when Sunny and the team showed up, we were all so loud and happy and in joy, that some fellow patrons complained! Can you imagine? They complained that we were in JOY!! We all laughed and kept having fun.
Saturday morning arrived!! We were so happy to get to spend the day and evening with liked minds. Being with Sunny is like being home. You feel safe, loved, heard. You know you matter. I love being in her energy.
The mix of people was a perfect blend of mostly people I knew from either old retreats, her online community, from her group etc, and some of Emmanuel's people. It was like being at a family reunion. I loved it so much. I hadn't realized I purchased VIP ticket, so I sat right at the front and centre. I was ready for the day. I was open to receive. In fact, after the initial intros, Sunny facilitated an open to receive exercise. She had us stand and said once we felt like we were open hearted to sit down. I felt guided to sit quickly. Learning to love myself is something that has truly expanded my soul. However, she said that she didn't feel we were really being truthful with ourselves and had us do it again. Janice and I held hands while our arms were outstretched and it was such a blessed few moments. You see, Janice is pure love. She is kind and she is gentle. I am so grateful she is shared that moment. Kris sang to us ( she is Sunny's soul musician) and created a magic moment for all of us. With outstretched arms we all REALLY felt open and ready to receive.
Emmanuel is such a gentle soul. He had us affirm the I AM, The Universe is. Both he and Sunny reminded us our magic is our existence. Remember the fact that no one is you. That is your magic. It is also your superpower. Love is who we are. Our magic is inside us. Do you know you are magic?? do you believe it?? you may want to journal on that. See what comes up. They also reminded us that we don't need to seek approval from anyone. We are worthy. Also, we don't need permission for anything. We have it.
Then fear was brought up. A lot of us are growing through fears.
- The four main fears are : fear of the unknown
- fear of losing someone or something
- fear of failure/fear of success
- fear of being alone ( we are never alone- it just feels that way!)
Sunny then asked us if we believed that everything happens for a reason? I do now. I didn't before. However I do believe that there is value in every lesson. When you can see the value and learn a lesson, then you have grown.
We must also make ourselves a priority and put ourselves on our calendar. It is really important to fill up our own cups.
Emmanuel helped us anchor in our energy with I am statements and music that he had specially created. It was truly an out of this world experience. I can't wait to purchase his CD as they sold out.
Kris Voelker is Sunny's soul musician and her music takes me places that can't only be described as safe, loving, nurturing and healing. I thoroughly enjoyed the Saturday evening sound healing and concert.
Sunday was more healing through grief and loss. It is always such an honour holding space for my fellow attendees. As one of Sunny's senior community, I was called upon twice to help others during their releasing. To help another soul is my highest work and I am forever grateful to the two ladies that allowed me that.
I think what was most amazing, was the strength I felt during this particular event. I felt different. I felt worthy, enough, loved, in my power and I didn't care what others thought of me. I put my focus on the love. I had an intention of extending love to someone who was there, who walked away from our friendship. I prayed for the right moment to extend myself to her. I apologized and I am moving forward now with ease, grace and realizing that nothing is the same and that is a great thing!! I am not the same person from four years ago. I have learned. I have grown. I have expanded and I am healing. I do love myself and I do have a big huge heart. My focus was on the love and all the blessings in my life. I have a beautiful life. I am a blessed woman and I am proud of me. I have the gift of compassion and true forgiveness. I have forgiven me. ( I posted a photo of my shadow, because I felt it was a special way to acknowledge my shadow self and to love her too)
"each friend who walks away is a teacher and is someone who draws you closer to the people who share your beliefs and passions. Being disliked by some is a product of being authentic to who you really are. be proud - they can not recognize your magic- it's ok"
Is this the day you decide to accept YOUR magic? Do you allow yourself to walk away from the old and all that is no longer serving you? Do you allow yourself to LET GO? Let go dear one.. allow yourself to shine bright!! Let go of dulling your sparkle and magic for fear of not being liked? You are Divine Magic and can co- create an amazing life with God. This IS the day that you can CHOOSE to be more! have more and see more.....
What was really interesting is that during our event a Tibetan monk was in the chapel creating a beautiful mandala and sunday was having a dissolution ceremony. That affirmed to me how impermanent life is. Nothing stays the same. Not even us. We are meant to have experiences, learn, grow, heal and expand. Staying the same is ok if that is what you choose, however for me, I need growth. My soul longs to grow and have new experiences. I am living a heart centred life. I do connect with God each day, and yesterday at the Church of the Holy Cross in Sedona is one of the most exquisite crosses with Jesus that I have ever seen. Last year when I visited I cried. This year, being there with Sunny and our group, I allowed myself to release so much old pain that I cried for what felt like almost half an hour. I wept and wept. During my weeping I cried for the old Julie. The girl who was trying her best to give to everyone but her. Then I cried for that part of me that didn't know better. Then I cried in gratitude that I know Jesus and that He is my heart. That I believe in Him and that I know Him. I asked Him if he was pleased with me.
I asked Him if my work was for the highest greatest good and if my intention of allowing others to see Him through me was pure and if He would forgive me for my trespasses and my human shortcomings.. He forgave me.. and He is pleased. I asked Him to guide my work. I asked Him to illuminate my path and I asked Him to allow healing to my friends and family. I thanked Him for all my blessings and for my life. I left the chapel filled with the Holy Spirit and with gratitude for my teacher Sunny and her community...
I was filled with so much love and healing that I couldn't wait to get home to my boys. My plane was to leave this morning, however I asked to get on a flight last night. I love Westjet. They accommodated me , and It was such a Joy to tell my boys I was at the airport and coming home.
You see, I don't run from my life, I went to sedona to fill up. I went to be with my teacher and my soul family. I loved every single moment. I realized my magic has been here all along. I turned it down because I wanted to be liked.
Once I fell in love with me... My magic became a miracle.
To close, I want you to know that I am open to being of service for angel card messages. They are $50 Canadian and payable to www.paypal.me/GiulianaMelo They can be done via email, phone, video or in person.
Tap into your magic today.. I love you!
