"You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn"
This is a quote made by Jim Rohn, motivational speaker and self-help guru that I totally agree with. When I decided I wanted to heal my life, I asked God to guide me to the right teachers, places, events, classes, retreats and experiences.
Early on, I began to realize that my mom and my sister were the first two of my greatest teachers. My mom has taught me faith, trust in God, compassion, kindness, unconditional love and forgiveness. She has walked through her forgiveness work with grace and ease. She is strong and she is faithful. I am very grateful to have her in my life during this stage of my expansion. She has been here for me through it all. She has been my teacher, nurse, therapist, prayer warrior and so much more. Now she is a mayor and politics isn't a pretty business. She and I have had to navigate a lot of growth during these years and it hasn't been easy for me to watch her be tore apart. Thankfully she is wise and can handle it. Me not so much. I could never or will never go into politics!
I also have gratitude to God that my sister is my first friend and continues to be my friend, cheerleader, confidante and barracuda when I need her to be one. She and I have the blessing of being able to say anything to each other and get mad and grow and heal and love. She is a vision of courage, strength, faith, love and so much more. She doesn't like me talking about her so I won't say much. Just suffice it to say I love her so very much and I am grateful God sent her to be my friend. He knew I would need her and I am so blessed.
The next amazing person in my five, which you will see is a little more than five, is my mentor, teacher, guide Sunny. I am so grateful for her. She has helped me navigate some of the most pain I have ever felt. I love the kind of teacher she is. She is no drama. No b.s. and matter of fact. She is kind and she is love. She taught me to be the lighthouse. She taught me to shine my light. She taught me vulnerability is courage. She taught me to Invoke Angels and to love every moment of my life, for every moment has a lesson. She has brought to me the most amazing group of support that I can ask for. She has allowed me to remove my masks and show up ME! She taught me I am fabulous and that I am worthy and enough. She brought self love to my table of life and nothing has been the same. Because of her I have my spiritual business and every day I am of service!! You can contact her at www.sunnydawnjohston.com.
The next teacher that I love is Crystal Andrus Morrisette...... Wow! This Goddess came just at the right time! Healing my inner little girl has been a trip I don't ever want to take again. Peeling back the layers in her groups has been raw and real. Meeting her in person was a blessing. She showed me that to fall down in your tribe is not weakness but strength. She taught me about my mother martyr archetype and other archetypes and has taught me to heal them to become an empowered Goddess!! She taught me that the Dalai Lama stated that the western woman will heal the world. She teaches about the emotional edge and takes you to the edge and doesn't allow you to fall.... she helps you open your wings!! She helps you fly! You can contact her at www.swatinstitute.com.
One of the next women I want to acknowledge is my Goddess teacher and friend Velva Dawn Silver. She came into my life when I needed to know how to ignite my inner flame and expand with ease and grace. She gifted me level one of her "Goddess Healing Matrix- Higher Priestess Practioner Course last year at this exact time ( Sept 2016) and I have found an energy and a strength within me that is palpable! I then went on to finish level two. I am very grateful to all the women she has brought into my life. She is holding level one in Nov and you can find out more on her website at www.velvadawn.com.
The next teacher I wish to acknowledge is Karen Neuls. She is my reiki 2 teacher and has also taught me about compassion. She is supportive and I am very grateful to her. I love attending her events and learning and growing with her. You can contact her at www.facebook.com/karenneuls444/
This next woman is Brigitte Lessard-Deyell. She is the creator of WomenTalk and has been an entrepreneur who has spent her whole life supporting and empowering women. She is passionate about women having the opportunity to share their stories in a positive setting. She created these monthly events in Calgary and then spread out to Edmonton, Red-Deer, Medicine Hat, Canmore, Okotoks & Strathmore - all alberta towns for now! She is teaching me that by sharing your story you make your community stronger. She is also teaching me to be courageous and to share my story. She is an encourager and loves building her stage for women to talk. She is a powerful Goddess who inspires women to celebrate their feminine energy and to speak their truth.
She is on the move and if you are interested in opening a chapter or speaking, you can apply at www.womentalk.ca. I look forward to my talk in Okotoks in 2018. Dates will be announced soon! I love this lady so much. She is an inspiration and attracts the most amazing women to talk and share and in turn shows us we are all more alike than different.
I have been taught by some masters in the business. I have been blessed by Lady Oprah and having seen her twice. I loved being taught by Doreen Virtue and so many other great women. I am on a journey of healing and I wouldn't trade a minute, for during the broken feeling times, that is where the light entered me. I listen to my God, my guides, my angels and loved ones in spirit. I love my family. I love all of my teachers.
Even the ones that showed me the ugly parts of me... To those ones I say a sincere thank you for the lessons.... for I don't see them as tragic, I seem them as a blessing. I thank God for every single experience. I thank God for loving me no matter what. I thank God for my abundance and my health. I thank God for all my blessings that haven't yet arrived.
