My greatest growth is to TRUST

Posted Posted by admin in Blog (Weekly), Blogs     Comments No comments

The season of Christmas is about love, light, sharing, giving and being with loved ones. When I listen to Christmas songs on the radio, they say it’s the happiest time of the year. Well, it may be for some, but not for everyone. You may be grieving the loss of a loved one, have a serious illness, be far away from family, recently divorced or lost your job. What a set-up to think something is wrong with us if we’re not feeling happy in the season. I often hear people say after Christmas, “I’m so glad it’s over.”

Spiritually, I believe the season invites us to go within and be still so that we can open our hearts to more love and light. Unfortunately, that is not what happens for many of us. Instead of being still and going within, we get busier with shopping, parties, cooking, eating and drinking. We are exhausted by the time Christmas gets here and we just want it to be over. Has this been your experience or were you able to give yourself some quiet time and go within?

Like many folks, I enjoy the lights and parties and being with loved ones. This Christmas I was “forced” to be still and go within due to a nagging cold that had a life of its own. I didn’t want to give my germs to anyone nor did I want to pick up any germs so we cancelled parties and dinners.

To be honest, I really enjoyed the quiet with the lights and candles and listening to Christmas music. Instead of feeling like I was missing something, I felt grateful for the time with Larry, myself and Spirit.  I participated in an on-line program called, “13 days to Activate Your Inner Light Through Radical Self-care which I really enjoyed because it gave me the opportunity to practice loving myself even deeper.

I had the opportunity and time to reflect on this past year and all its ups and downs and the lessons learned. During the solstice, I was able to release what no longer served me and through the powerful energies present ask for what I wanted to attract into my life.

I asked Larry, “What do you think your greatest growth was for this past year?”  When he asked me the same question, I knew right away what the answer was. It was TRUST. My trust in God is deeper than it has ever been. I know and trust that everything is in perfect and divine order. I know and trust that whatever I am experiencing is for my highest good and it is perfect.

It seems like as my trust in God has deepened, so has my trust in myself in many ways.  I know when to say yes and when to say no, without feeling guilty. I know when to step out in faith and when to be quiet. I know how to love myself and give myself what I need.

I am learning that love is all there is and to choose love instead of fear. I am learning to see everything as an opportunity, rather than a problem or challenge. I am grateful for this year and look forward to even more blessings in the coming year.


As Pat shared, many of us are looking back at the year, reviewing how we have grown or changed. I think I have made progress in some areas and none in others.  I’ve grown in patience and living in the moment.

I grew up believing that the man of the household had the responsibility to make sure everyone was happy or at least content when a problem arose. I thought it was my job to fix it or offer a solution. I realize that my perspectives about relationships came from this belief and my behaviors reflected this.

Pat has helped me understand that when she shares something that is troubling her, she is not expecting me to fix it.  She needs to share it and wants me to just listen. After I have listened, I will ask her if there is anything, she would like me to do to support her.

The area I’ve grown most in is allowing Pat to share her feelings without offering a solution. When I’m able to do this, it really feels good for me because I don’t have the pressure to make it right or solve the problem. It’s no longer my responsibility and it’s a great weight off my shoulder. I wish I had known this a long time ago.

I’m learning that I can still love her, be there for her without trying to fix what’s bothering her. She is an intelligent person who can engage in all of the opportunities presented to her.  She can accept these opportunities and handle them herself.

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 try to FIGURE IT ALL OUT

* Not question GOD’S TIMING OR PLAN

Surrender means to:











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?






I crashed

Posted Posted by admin in Blog (Weekly), Blogs     Comments No comments

A few weeks ago. I shared that I was “riding the wave” and flying through the water and air. It felt both scary and adventurous. I know surfers have been injured when the wave hits and they go under. It takes commitment and practice to ride the waves.

This week the wave hit me and I went under! If you have ever been hit by a wave you know what happens. It’s scary when you get tossed around, lose your breath and don’t know what’s happening. You may have bruises or broken bones when and if you finally make it out of the water.

After I returned from the powerful retreat in Costa Rica and was so high, I CRASHED. I felt extreme exhaustion and had no motivation for anything. I felt depleted, empty and like I had lost my MOJO. I even questioned if I was cut out for this work because it took so much out of me.

Although I understood intellectually that this is to be expected after a long trip away and releasing so much energy, not only from this lifetime. but from past lifetimes, I felt fearful that what I was experiencing wouldn’t pass. A friend shared that I had expanded so much that it was natural to then contract.

It was difficult because I couldn’t be around people who were joyful and celebrating the holidays. I canceled parties with friends and just rested to replenish and restore myself. For so many years, I pushed myself to do things without even checking in with my body to see if it was the right thing for me to do. It was more important to please others than to take care of my needs. I didn’t want to be judged and wanted to be liked, so I pushed myself.

Holidays can be very difficult for people if they have lost a loved one or are estranged from family and don’t feel joyful. Sometimes, it’s good to push yourself to join in and get out of the house and sometimes it’s good to take care of yourself and be quiet. Self-love and self-care are extremely important as well as trusting yourself and asking Spirit what to do next.

I chose to BE STILL and quiet until whatever needed to pass through me passed through. And it did! I needed God to fill me up again. I prayed, meditated, let go, surrendered, slept, asked for help and TRUSTED that everything was happening for a reason. I remembered my message from the retreat and that my experience was my experience and it was perfect. 

What made this transition easier was how Larry supported and loved me through this experience. Instead of trying to push me to do things because it may make me feel better or not to disappoint my friends, he supported my decision to be still and quiet completely. He encouraged me to stay home and rest. I so appreciated his wisdom and respect for my knowing what I needed to do for myself. I also appreciated my friends who supported and loved me through their texts and calls.

Being on the other side of this and having my MOJO and enthusiasm back, I have learned a few lessons about trust and waiting. Whatever is happening is for my highest good and it will pass. What goes up must come down. What expands must contract.

What I learned from this is that I must protect myself energetically since everything is energy before doing this powerful healing energy work. I picked up someone else’s energy and it needed to be cleared. After I did this clearing, it was almost instantly that the heaviness and exhaustion lifted and I was back to myself again.

I will ground myself and ask the angels to go before me and put a white light or bubble around me for protection in the future.

I am very excited to be giving the talk tonight Awakening to Your Sacred Sexuality at the Wailea Healing Center. Barbara, Antisk and I will be giving the workshop January 5-6. I know it will be a powerful and healing workshop for the women attending as it was for me.








I was interviewed on Gutsy Women radio

Posted Posted by admin in Blog (Weekly), Blogs     Comments No comments

I love how the Universe conspires to bring people together at the right and perfect time and in the perfect way. Some call it synchronicity because It almost feels like magic when it happens. When we are aligned with Spirit, we will find that this is happening more and more in our lives.

It has been a busy week for me and I have loved every minute of it. I was just about to leave my house to give my first presentation for the Awakening to Your Sacred Sexuality retreat on January 5-6 when the phone rang. I don’t usually answer it when it is a number I don’t recognize because of all the marketing calls I receive.

I decided to answer it and I am glad that I did. It was from a woman who wanted information about the workshop I was giving that night. She said, “I just saw your workshop online and I am very interested. I know I need to go deeper in healing my sexuality. I asked the Universe to guide me to the right place and this seems like exactly what I need.”  We talked a few minutes about this healing practice and we both had the chills. She said, “I will be there tonight.”  She came and loved it. She called the next day and said, “I feel validated by what I learned and want to make an individual appointment for a session with you this week”.

The workshop was fabulous and the women who attended were open and willing to share their beliefs and struggles about their own sexuality. I felt relaxed, prepared and on fire to share my experience of transformation and healing.

The next day I was interviewed on a radio show called “Gutsy Women.” I loved it as it brought back memories of when I had my own inspirational radio show years ago. I am getting more and more comfortable sharing this beautiful sacred energy healing with the world.

That same day I received another phone call from a 28 year- old woman named Melanie who had just seen the workshop advertised on the Wailea Healing Center’s website. I shared that the Awakening and Healing practice is about clearing trauma whether it be physical, emotional, spiritual or sexual abuse from our bodies that can be from this lifetime or past lifetimes.

Melanie followed her heart and had recently moved to Maui by herself. She has been working on her sexuality as memories came up of childhood sexual abuse. She knew she needed deeper healing and was ready to release the trauma. After we discussed the value of attending the weekend, she signed up immediately and sent me her deposit.

Here is a testimony to show the power of this sacred sexuality healing.

“I have never experienced anything like this in my 69 years young. The Awakening and Healing sessions with Pat have been powerful, transformational, healing, sacred, profound and gentle all in the same time.  Although I trusted Pat, I felt uncomfortable and scared the first session. I wasn’t able to feel much of anything including Pat’s touch in parts of my body that were numb due to sexual abuse starting at the age of 3 to 12. I wanted to release all that I had repressed for so many years and I was willing to do whatever I needed to do to remove blockages that robbed me all of my life of my sexuality and pleasure. Each session has been different and I have gone deeper into the pain that I repressed for so many years. I felt heat and divine energy moving up my chakras and flowing through Pat’s healing touch. It felt like electricity moving through my whole body.  When I went home after one of the sessions, my whole body felt like it was on fire inside and outside and it lasted for four hours. After four sacred sessions with Pat, I feel new life coming into my body and I am feeling joy, happiness, and new sensations in my body like I have never felt before. Thank you, Pat, for you have truly found your life purpose and are making a profound difference in the world. I felt a deep connection, presence and love with you.” Sharon Lund

I received this email from a woman this week.

“I think most women need sexual healing, including those who haven’t been sexually abused. I have met so many dishonest guys that I am insecure and non-trusting in relationships. I have met many women who were in a relationship like marriage and were cheated on and now have major trust issues. I have been told that because my mother was sexually abused by her stepfather, that energy is still in me.”

Women are standing in their feminine power and speaking up about their abuse and trauma. It is time for awakening and healing. I feel so blessed for my own healing and now teaching women about the Awakening and Healing.


I don’t want you to do anything, I want you to learn how to BE

Posted Posted by admin in Blog (Weekly), Blogs     Comments No comments

I was playing on Google last week and decided to type in Pat Hastings to see what came up. The first thing that came up was a TV show that I was a guest on called Daring to Dream with Suzie Spivey. I hadn’t seen the interview in many years. What a joy it was to watch it again and see what was happening in my life back then. I was amazed how confident I was and how the words just flowed out of me.

It’s hard to believe that I retired from the VA hospital as an Alcohol and Drug therapist in Rhode Island and published my book, Simply a Woman of Faith ten years ago.

After I retired, at the age of 62, I became a Certified Spiritual Life Coach and started a new business as a radio talk show host, an inspirational speaker, a workshop and retreat leader and loved what I was doing.

I followed my heart and moved to Maui seven years ago in January and expected to continue on the same path and doing what I loved. Spirit had other PLANS for me. Isn’t that often the way. You think you are doing one thing and in mid- stream the PLAN changes.  I can hear Spirit saying, “Recalculate, recalculate.” We make plans and God laughs.

I had only been living on Maui for a couple of weeks when I heard Spirit say, “I don’t want you to DO anything, I want you to learn how to BE.” I thought I knew how to BE. I was wrong. I knew how to DO very well, but BEING was something I needed to learn. BEING is about allowing, surrendering and accepting what is. It is the feminine way. I had been a DOER all my life and was out of balance and didn’t know it.

I was used to hearing the small, still voice of God, so I paid attention. I gave it all up; the coaching, speaking and giving retreats. My friend and I facilitated one or two workshops, but that was it. When I landed on Maui, I lived with friends on the ocean and paid $300 a month for rent so I didn’t have to make money to live.

I love being retired, being married to Larry, having fun, going to the pool and beach, going for walks, writing my weekly inspirational blog and doing whatever I wanted.  I know my purpose in life is to love and to remember who I am. It is also to share my journey and be an inspiration to others. Spirit gave me an affirmation many years ago when I was paralyzed with fear and ready to give it all up. In my dream, I was climbing a ladder leading up to the sky. When I reached the top and put my hand out to touch the star, I became the star.  Here is the affirmation I received. “I am a star that shines brightly to lead others to the God within.”

I’m not sure what it is about 7 years, but it took me 7 years to write my book. My book almost died inside of me because I didn’t believe in myself and was filled with fear.  Can you relate? It truly was the grace of God that I was able to move through the fear and publish my book. I am so grateful that I didn’t give up because I wouldn’t be living the life I am living and married to my soulmate.

At the age of 72 and living on Maui for 7 years, the PLAN has changed again. I am trusting that I have learned how to BE and I am now more balanced. I am following my heart and have said YES to Spirit. I am currently enrolled in the Sacred Mystery School to become a Certified Sacred Sexual Educator.

I am on fire and passionate about facilitating and teaching this profound, yet gentle Awakening and Healing AH process to clear trauma from the body. It is pure, sacred and holy and I feel honored to be on my soul’s path.

Although excited and passionate, I am SCARED and all my insecurities are coming to the surface. I am giving a talk this week and will be interviewed on the Gutsy Women Radio show. I am stepping out in faith and trusting as I don’t feel like I have the right words to explain this powerful, profound healing process yet. I am “showing up” and asking Spirit to speak through me and give me the right words.

I am remembering how I have always been given what I need. I am letting go of outcomes and trusting that the women who will benefit from this sacred healing will find me just as I miraculously found Caroline and Amrita.

I know God’s PLAN is good. I stand in my POWER and say YES. I will continue to love my life, face my fears, have fun and BE the best me I can be. I am in the mystery and don’t know what’s in store in this new adventure. All I know is that in this moment, EVERYTHING IS GOOD and in perfect and divine order.


Life is always working out for me

Posted Posted by admin in Blog (Weekly), Blogs     Comments No comments

Life has a way of getting our attention, doesn’t it? One day we are flying high or riding the wave and everything is going smoothly and the next day, we are struggling with a loss or something we can’t control. And then the next day, we are good to go again and aligned with Spirit. This week I’ve had a few days of feeling deep sadness and loss.

I like to practice going with the flow and accepting “what is.” It’s not easy to go with the flow when there is change in our life and we aren’t happy about it.

When I’m in pain and struggling, it’s a choice and a decision to trust Spirit and the process and to know that everything is happening for my highest good. I read something recently suggesting we embrace and trust our suffering and what is breaking down until you have a breakthrough.

Change is inevitable and sometimes painful and sometimes exhilarating. We are always changing and the people we love are always changing. I have learned that all I can change is myself. It’s not my job or responsibility to fix or try to change anyone else. It is my belief that everyone is doing the best they can, including myself.

I will not do a spiritual bypass anymore and pretend that I’m fine when I’m not. I did that for many years putting on a happy face when inside I was dying and often didn’t even know it. I didn’t trust myself or others enough to be honest and real.  Deep down, I was afraid that they wouldn’t love me if I shared what I was experiencing.

I must be vulnerable and honest and ask for help when I need it when I’m struggling. I may or may not get what I want, but at least I have asked and oftentimes. I get exactly what I need.

It often takes time to move through the grief process when there is a “perceived” loss or a real loss and something has changed that we’re not happy with. For example, your spouse leaves you and your heart hurts, or you lose a loved one, or you lose your job. The list could go on and one and whether it’s a big loss or a small one it doesn’t matter when you hurt inside.

I know that acceptance is always the answer; but in order to get there I must allow myself time to go through the grief process which may include feelings of sadness, disappointment, anger or depression.  I have learned that feelings are not right or wrong and to give myself permission to feel whatever I’m feeling.

I must allow myself to feel whatever I’m feeling for as long as I need to and not push myself to go faster. It may take a day or a month or a year to work through something. During the grief process, it is important to love and be compassionate with myself, knowing that everything I need is inside of me.

Are you able to love yourself and give yourself what you need when things around you have changed and you are feeling sad or depressed?

I encourage you to trust yourself, Spirit and the process and to know you are loved and that whatever is happening is for your highest good and that you are loved.

Life Will Always Be Working Out for Me. . .

I like understanding that things are always evolving, and while there are many things that could be better where I am, it is not really a problem because “where I am” is constantly changing to something better. I like knowing that as I look for the best things around me where I am, those things become more prevalent in my experience.

It is fun to know that things are always working out for me, and as I watch for the evidence of that . . . I see more evidence of that every day.  Abraham






I am riding the wave

Posted Posted by admin in Blog (Weekly), Blogs     Comments No comments

As we sat sipping our tea and sharing our lives with one another, My friend looked at me and said, “Pat you are riding the wave.” That really resonated deep within me. I have never surfed, but have watched the surfers here on Maui and it looks exhilarating and fun. Being on top of the wave and flying through the water and air appears to be both scary and adventurous. I know beginner surfers have been injured when the wave hits and they go under. It looks so easy, but it takes many years of commitment and practice.

This made me reflect on my own life and deciding to become a Certified Sacred Sexual Educator. I feel like I am riding the wave and it is fun, adventurous and exhilarating. For me, riding the wave is being aligned with Spirit and allowing things to flow to me with peace, ease and grace. Although it is not effortless, it almost feels like it because ideas and people “show up” to show me the next step for my journey.

For example, although people have known me for the last 10 years as “Simply a Woman of Faith” and I will always be Simply a Woman of Faith, I wanted to reinvent myself and get business cards and a website for my new business. I prayed and asked Spirit to lead me to someone who could help me with a new website.

The next day I was sharing with my daughter, Mary, about wanting to create a new website.  She said, “Mom, I can do it for you, it’s easy.” The next thing I knew while we were still on the phone, she was creating a new website through Word- press, which I am familiar with and we will work on it together. We went to GoDaddy and found a name for my new business. It will be “”  I am so excited and will let you know when it is done.

If I want to continue to ride the wave and not crash and get tossed around and get injured, I need to FOCUS. To be honest, this is not my strongest point. Whenever I leave the house, Larry’s parting words are “Pat, remember to FOCUS.” We laugh because he knows me well and how I dance through life sometimes and don’t take the time to think about things before I jump in head first.

Not only do I need to FOCUS, but I need to pay attention to how I’m taking care of myself in body, mind and spirit. I must be balanced in all areas of my life: eating healthy, exercise, resting, time alone and time with Larry and friends and family.

My number one priority is my relationship with self and Spirit. I take the time each day to go within to pray and meditate. I ask for help and guidance with EVERYTHING. I listen and follow through when I hear the small, still voice of God. I TRUST that I am always being guided and if I am doing something that is not for my highest good, I will be redirected.  It is just like when the GPS on your phone says recalculate when you are going in the wrong direction. I have my personal GPS guiding me.

Many years ago, I made a commitment to do God’s will and follow wherever I was being led. I am living in the mystery and don’t know what’s ahead and that is a good thing  I take one day at a time and choose to live in the present moment because that is really all there is.

I could not have imagined 10 years ago when I retired from the VA that I would be living on Maui, married to my soulmate and now starting a new career at age 72. Oh happy day. I want to continue practicing riding the wave and trusting God with this adventure called my LIFE.


Divine Appointment

Posted Posted by admin in Blog (Weekly), Blogs     Comments No comments

I would like to share a powerful email I received from my friend, Kerri, in response to my blog about meeting the woman on the plane last week. She shares about what happened when she listened to her intuition, trusted and didn’t worry about the money.

“I always enjoy your blogs, but this week’s blog really touched my heart. I could hear my mom’s words to me, “God speaks through his people,” as you described the encounter with the woman on the plane. How could that be anything other than a “Divine Appointment?” You were her angel, and I know she got off that plane feeling different than when she boarded.

I’d like to share my “Divine Appointment” from this past weekend in LA.  I was scheduled to fly back to Maui early on Sunday morning, but by early Saturday afternoon, a few things were clear:

  • I still hadn’t had a chance to meet with the LA team about my Maui-based business and discussing the legalities around using the Harmonyum trademarks.
  • My teacher still hadn’t lectured yet, and 2 of the 4 training days were over.

He always lectures one- or two-nights during trainings, but it’s never

announced when due to his busy schedule.

  • I brought products to sell and as of early Saturday, I had only sold 4 items.

My rack was still full of ponchos, scarves, and t-shirts.

  • A friend offered to give me a Harmonyum session, but it didn’t look like I

would be able to return the favor because of her schedule. I was also

disappointed upon my arrival in LA to find out she wasn’t lecturing during

the training, because she’s brilliant.

As I sat in the lounge at the yoga studio, my intuition was telling me to change my flight back to Maui and go home on Monday. I decided to receive a Harmonyum session to listen and ask for guidance about what to do.

After the session, my friend said, “I will be giving a lecture, but not until noon on Sunday.” That made it clear and I called the airline to change my flight back.  Along with $125 for changing the flight, I found out that I didn’t have enough miles to make the change, but the lady on the phone said, “I can gift 1,000 miles once a day, and I will gift it to you.” There was 1 seat left back to Maui on Monday morning. I then found out that I didn’t owe any extra money for renting the car an extra day because what I had paid covered an entire week. Sweet!!

Right after that, I ran into the three people I needed to meet with about the business/website name, and they asked if I could meet with them on Sunday (what are the chances they’d all be in the lounge at the same time? They work on different teams and are always coming and going).  Right after that, my friend changed her plans for the afternoon, so I was able to offer her a Harmonyum

I am on FIRE

Posted Posted by admin in Blog (Weekly), Blogs     Comments No comments

As I sit on the plane waiting for it to take off, my heart is full of gratitude and awe. I am returning to Maui from Oakland, California after assisting Amrita Grace at the Awakening and Healing Sacred Sexuality weekend.

The only way I can describe what I am feeling is that I am on FIRE to share this sacred, holy work with all women.  This work is powerful and profound as well as gentle and safe. I have EXPANDED and gone deeper than I ever thought possible. I am healing trauma and deep wounding in my body from this life time and past generations.

What a great opportunity to assist Amrita and learn how to lead a weekend workshop. Learning to teach this work is one of the best decisions I have made. When I complete my training, I will be able to teach this practice all over the world. How good it that and in divine timing.

Being on the “other side” as an assistant, I watched the women on the weekend transform before my very eyes. The women faced their fears and embraced the Goddess and power within. It was extraordinary and beautiful to be a part of.

As part of my six- month training to become a Certified Spiritual Sexual Educator, I will be leading a workshop along with 2 of my classmates on Maui on January 5-6. The weekend is starting to fill up and we are so excited.

On the plane ride to Oakland for the workshop, I experienced a DIVINE set-up or what I call a GodIncidence. I sat next to a young woman that when we started talking, we didn’t stop for 4 hours.

She is a videographer and just finished shooting a spiritual retreat at Lumeria Retreat Center here on Maui. She lives in Mexico and Is a yoga teacher and retreat leader herself. The door opened for me to share about the Awakening and Healing sacred sexuality weekend when she asked, “What are you going to California for?”

After I shared my journey of healing from sexual abuse, she shared she was drugged and raped by a co-worker recently and hadn’t talked about it or had any therapy for it. I validated her. listened to her story and encouraged her to seek treatment. I invited her to attend the workshop here on Maui in January. She seemed excited about attending it and will let me know if it will work for her. She also said, “Perhaps you can come to Mexico to teach about sacred sexuality.”

I was led to share with her that I was an Alcohol and Drug therapist for 20 years. That opened another door that was extremely meaningful.  She shared her family dynamics as her mother is an active alcoholic. She also shared how she always attracts men who have addiction problems and didn’t understand why.

I shared my story of growing up with an alcoholic mother and what I did to heal. I told her about 12 step programs and how they helped me understand the disease and recover. She was so receptive and said, “I will definitely check out meetings when I return home.”

Holy moly, I could not have chosen a better woman to sit next to so I could share my gifts and wisdom.  As the plane was about to land and we exchanged emails and phone numbers, she looked at me and said, “When I was walking up the aisle to find my seat, I prayed and asked God to let me sit next to someone who would have a message for me.”

I know more than ever that I am always guided and provided for when I listen and follow my heart.  I “show up” and trust there is a divine plan and God’s timing is always perfect.

This workshop is a great way to get introduced to sacred sexual awakening and healing (AH) in a safe, clear impeccable step-by-step process. The AH practice is a self-healing modality for clearing trauma, shame and blocks to pleasure and enjoyment. We hold trauma, emotional and energetic imprints in our bodies that can be released with this unique, transformational healing.
