I let go and let go

I looked at my friends, Kerry and Sharon, and said, “How long shall we wait until we close up shop?” Kerry and Sharon came to support me and set up when I presented my introductory talk “Awakening to your Sacred Sexuality” at the Wailea Healing Center. The presentation was scheduled to start at 7:00 p.m. and there wasn’t a woman in sight.

Clearly, we were disappointed, but trying to accept “what is.” My weekend workshop is scheduled for January 5th & 6th and I was hoping we would get some more women to sign up for it

We were happy and surprised when two women walked in at 7:05. I welcomed them and engaged them in conversation. They were from California and were on vacation. They wouldn’t be coming to our workshop, but while searching for a yoga class on the Wailea Healing Center’s website, the women spotted our workshop and knew they were meant to come to hear the talk, as they both worked with women and were very interested in the subject.

As I started to give my presentation (that I also gave a few weeks ago at the Unity Church) with my index cards and flip chart, I put the cards down and started to just share from my heart and never used the flip chart. I shared my experience with this powerful healing and how I was led into it. I had no idea where I was in my talk or if I would forget something important, but I didn’t. I had surrendered and trusted I was being led.  When I let go, Spirit took over.

I invited the women to share their experience with sexual healing and asked them what they knew about it. Both the aunt and her niece, were so willing and open to share their stories. They had many questions because both had been sexually abused and they were from alcoholic homes.

The aunt has been sober for 7 years and works with women in sobriety. She shared that many women have memories of being sexually abused when they get sober. The niece works with women veterans and we suspect there is a high incidence of abuse in women veterans

Wow, what an intimate and beautiful sharing we had for 90 minutes. We could not have gone as deep as we did if there were more women attending. Spirit knows best and I am learning to trust that everything is perfect and there is no right or wrong about anything. It’s all good.

I offered them a sacred healing session in my home before they returned home to California. I received an email from the niece the next day asking me if she could have a session with me.  We have a session scheduled this week. Here is her email.

Aloha beautiful Pat!

I am doing so wonderful and am still dancing in the bliss of the other evening and so grateful for spirit aligning our journeys with one another.

I would love to talk more about the possibility of offering a weekend gathering or workshop in California and will let spirit lead and see what comes into fruition!

I am completely surrendered and trusting that the women who are meant to attend our workshop will be there and they will find it as I did. I get out of the way and let Spirit lead. I don’t think it gets any better than that. Do you? I would love to hear your story of allowing Spirit to lead you and what happened.

Surrender means to:

* Not OBSESS

* Not WORRY

* Not BE AFRAID

* Not PUSH TO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN

* Not be ANGRY WHEN IT DOESN’T GO MY WAY

* Not try to FIGURE IT ALL OUT

* Not question GOD’S TIMING OR PLAN

Surrender means to:

* I TRUST

* I ALLOW

* I LET GO

* I CHOOSE LOVE

* I RELAX

* I LISTEN

* I ACCEPT WHAT IS

* I PRACTICE GRATITUDE

* I LIVE IN THE PRESENT MOMENT

* i LET GO OF OUTCOME

When I let go and get out of the way, Spirit guides me to the next right action. Are you surrendered and trusting or are you trying to control the outcome?
