I was Blown Away

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

I received an email from, Lisa Tener, my book coach and friend, with a podcast of a radio show she was interviewed on with another book coach, Patrick Snow, from Maui. It was called “Leadership at All Levels” and the host was Gail Alofsin,

Lisa wrote, “Gail mentioned you early in the show that I was channeling Pat Hastings. I shared the title of your book, “Simply a Women of Faith” and that I was also your book coach. Gail mentioned you again later in the interview. It was almost as if you were there with us, as they shared connection among the 3 of us and also as an inspiration for some of the points we made.

After I listened to the show I thought, “I’ll contact Gail and ask if I could be a guest on her radio show when I come to Rhode Island in July, but then quickly got busy and forgot about it. Gail is a friend of mine and a professor at the University of Rhode Island. I was a guest speaker in her communication and marketing classes.

I listen to a meditation on my phone that I downloaded from Dr. Joe Dispenza before I go to bed every night. When I started the meditation, Gail’s radio show with Lisa and Patrick popped up. I thought, “How the heck did that happen?” That email and podcast were sent to me over 3 weeks ago and still in my inbox.

I couldn’t get Gail’s radio show to stop playing and had to shut my phone off. I then listened to my meditation and fell asleep. When I woke up in the morning, I remembered the experience with the radio show. It felt like Spirit was trying to get my attention and I sent Gail an email asking if I could be a guest on her show.

Gail responded and said, “I would LOVE to have you on the July show. Spirit always leads and guides when I listen to my intuition and follow through.

I then remembered what happened after my presentation in Gail’s communication class 12 years ago. Gail sent me 80 typed letters from her students about what they learned from my presentation. I WAS BLOWN AWAY! I couldn’t stop crying and had to read only a few at a time. It touched my heart so deeply that I kept them and brought them to Maui with me. What a gift it was to read them again. I AM STILL BLOWN AWAY by their loving comments. Here are some high lights:

“I was skeptical at first, but immediately after you began speaking, I became hooked.” Zack

“I was captivated by all of your stories. The “Blouse story” is one that completely blew my mind and had me on the edge of the seat. I was awe struck.” David

“You had an amazing upbeat vibe, which spread throughout the room like wildfire and to say it was contagious would be an understatement.” Jason

“As soon as you walked into the room, you could feel your vibrant personality. Your stories were jaw dropping and were incredibly moving.” Madison

“Your talk was incredibly moving and engaging. It literally gave me the chills when you shared how you received money in the mailbox.” Brittany

 “Your stories left me with goose bumps. I’ve never been able to hear first hand stories about a woman who has so much faith and inner spirituality.” Whitney

“I connected with your overall positive energy and it created an inner change in me.” Laura

 “You speak with such passion and spread enthusiasm and motivation. Your stories were both shocking and very inspirational.” Michelle

“I can honestly say your book is unlike anything I have ever read. It has opened my eyes to a new way of thinking and I know my life has been changed for the better.” Chelsey

This is truly a gift that I received all these letters that I will treasure in my heart forever. I had no idea how my story was going to touch and change lives. If I ever doubt myself or the presence of Spirit in my life, I will remember what these students said. The world needs us to continue to shine our lights. We never know how we are going to touch people’s lives, do we?
