I hope this post finds you happy, joyful and abundant!
As the newest member of your Evolution Ezine family, I want to introduce myself and to express my gratitude for this amazing opportunity. Being able to share in a community of transformation and awakening is in total alignment with my life purpose! As an author, editor, reviewer, business woman and messenger my life is dedicated to awakening – mind, body & spirit – both mine and yours!
I have studied self-development for many years but it was the life events I experienced in 2012 that totally awakened me to the Divine and animated my life purpose. My journey has led me to a wondrous place I could never have imagined.
Satori in Zen Buddhism is described as “the state of sudden, indescribable, intuitive enlightenment”. I’d like to share a Satori moment that happened while I was meditating. As I let my thoughts slowly drift, I suddenly saw myself standing at the edge of a steep ravine- on my side there was barren, parched land; brown dirt and unbearable heat. On the road behind me was a small village of mud huts and weary, defeated people. In front of me was a broken rope bridge that had once led across the ravine- to a world of lush green trees and flowers of every hue, lyrical waterfalls and birds playing in the laughing breeze. In my vision, I looked at my desolate surroundings and I breathed deep, closed my eyes and smiled….letting go of any limitation and frustration. When I opened my eyes- the bridge was no longer broken- but sturdy and strong with lush green leaves and vines of colorful flowers entwined throughout its length. My first thought was….the path is clear! But instead of rushing across the bridge to the paradise that waited…I turned and ran back to the village…proclaiming as loud as my voice could yell, “The path is clear! The path is clear!” As the vision ended- tears were streaming down my face…..I knew- in that moment- that I was meant to be the bridge for others…to spread the message.
So you can understand my excitement and delight at this chance to be part of YOUR journey! I believe our commonality is our yearning for connection to Source. I also believe that each of us embrace our own personal truth and as such, need to assemble the spiritual practices that resonate with that truth. Since we create our own reality – it is imperative that we have the proper tools to be our most creative! Evolution Ezine is the perfect transformational tool provider!
We want to share the very best tools for each and every one of you – so please let us know what you’d like to see more of, what tools are working for YOU and of course-we want to hear all about your experiences so please keep those comments coming!
Let’s remember together! ~Gia~
