Several weeks ago, I was experiencing lots of old conditioned thoughts churning around in my head. Triggers and emotions and doubts were coming up. A friend of mine told me that she would be praying for me – “holding watch.” She said, “Now, any time those negative thoughts come up, I want you to remember that I’ve got it. Remember that I’m working on it for you.” I laughed and said, “I’m outsourcing my worries, huh?”
I was. And it worked!
So, here’s an opportunity for you – if you’re going through stuff or if you just want someone to hold intent for you for a Great Big Dream that you have for yourself…
This coming weekend is the next Great Big Dreams Retreat. A group of 25 women will be gathering in the beautiful autumn mountain world of Asheville, NC. At every retreat I facilitate, there is an altar. There’s no denomination or rigidity or woo-woo stuff about the altar. It’s just a practical space for all our intentions. The retreaters can put anything on the altar – pinecones, poetry, or prayers. Whatever.
On the altar, I also put a Prayer List. On this list are the intents of anyone who has written to me – either through email or comments – to state some intention of healing or expansion or release for themselves or someone they know. Since I started doing this, I’ve gotten emails and letters from people all over the world telling me that it was a shifting point for them – that they sensed the power of our circle.
So – here’s your chance to outsource your worries and intents. Leave a comment below. Or send me an email. (email@example.com) On Friday morning, I will print out the lists, and take them with me to the retreat. You don’t have to give your real name. Nor will I publicize any of this. You will be included in the circle of our retreat, and your intentions will be a part of all the rituals of our weekend. (If you want to read more about Prayer Lists, click here.)
p.s. One space has just opened up in this retreat. If you are a last-minute kind of person and you want to come to Asheville for a gorgeous fall weekend, please send me an email. I’ll fill you in on the details.
