In the Flow with Healing Waters
One retreat, lasting results
Once again Susan and I had our I AM’s expand and move beyond what our minds typically can’t imagine, yet the heart, the keeper of I AM understands totally.
We had another I AM retreat; this one was very telling for us, as we had a big snowstorm the evening prior to the retreat. The snowstorm dropped 12-14 inches of snow. As northerners, we can handle snow, but this was A LOT of snow.
We contemplated, whether we cancel or should we hold it. Our hearts wanted to hold it and decided to reach out to the participants to hear what they wanted as most of them were traveling for an hour or more away. We moved the time back 90 minutes so we could shovel out and accommodate for travel, and it came together beautifully.
WOW, they ALL had no hesitation to get in their vehicles and travel the distance to attend the I AM retreat. That blew our minds. This is what happens when I AM SPEAKS.
Each retreat is magical in itself because each person is called to be there. We are always curious about who will show up, and it is always perfect because the right people show up at the right time.
We understand there is a movement deep within each of us and it is beginning to stir and move. It might be a familiar and exciting feeling, it might feel new, or maybe you have felt it before but it feels foreign, not always uneasy and it often is. The reason for this is that you have not been taught about this feeling. In society and in our culture, we don’t talk about feelings, so I AM has not been addressed or taught like this before.
It has been discovered and talked about as something outside of us, like God, Allah, the Great Spirit, or Buddha, you pick which one resonates with you.
For us to get on the same page I want to simplify it and label it Love.
You get the idea these are labels of something great, something mystical, our brains attempt to grasp it, and notice there are no words for it. Today addressing it as Love, we can identify it as something we feel, desire to feel, and desire to have more of in our life.
LOVE is not a thought it is a FEELING, and feelings are difficult to describe.
Once you know love you can’t help to feel it, desire it, and live from it.
When you are in search of love, it is common to look and desire to receive it from others, wanting them to fulfill your love bucket. The truth is, love must start with yourself, love from the inside and bring it to the outside.
A lot of us have been practicing it from the outside to bring it to the inside. It becomes a feeling if you love me I am loveable, do you approve … etc.
When you know love, you can witness the love that is outside of you, it is only when you bring it to the inside and feel it, that it moves you.
Notice when you are moved by this feeling of love, and notice that it is not from your head.
Have you ever had the experience of watching a movie and suddenly it moves you into a heart feeling? It might be a longing, a sadness, a softness, a good feeling, and a familiar feeling, sometimes it is hard to feel it and sometimes it is pure joy.
What happens here is simply that your heart is recalling a feeling that was either painful or joyful, both are love feelings. The difference is longing for the love that you desire or a celebration of love. When you look at these they are the opposites of the same thing, LOVE.
Love is the biggest human experience that we get to encounter in our lives. Either in the lack of or in the abundance. When you observe this and put your attention on the abundance of love, that is what is amplified, the same applies when you put your attention on the lack of love.
This is the nature of life, where your attention goes, the energy flows. This means you are the one in charge of yourself, others are not in charge of you.
Putting your attention on loving you first is essential. I know, right? We have been told that it is narcissistic and selfish, which both feel negative. Let’s look at it for a moment and transform this thought. It is about filling your personal love bucket first so you can freely love another. This is not selfish, it allows you to give to others without restriction. You have plenty to share and give when your bucket is full, this changes everything.
I had this thought today on the similarities and differences between anxiety and love.
Both are feelings and both can be intense or subtle.
Anxiety is paralyzing and stops your flow, in either a subtle or intense way.
Love or I AM moves you forward. Also, in a subtle or intense way, with uncertainty and excitement because on some level it feels right, exhilarating, and free.
Are you living life from your heart or your mind? From fear or from love?
Only you can live your life, only you can breathe your breath, only you can drink your water, this love comes from the inside of you. Your love comes only from you and blesses everyone on the outside of you. Living from this place from within brings you peace and happiness that is yours for eternity.
When each of us makes this shift, this begins to stir in us. From here the ripple effect begins and those closest to us feel it.
This is the beginning of the I AM movement.
