Cheers to transformational journeys!

Is it all a coincidence? I really don’t think so. In my last month’s publisher letter, I wrote about the transformational journey I went on with my editor to Rythmia Life Advancement Center in Costa Rica. I’ve had over a month to process and immerse myself back into the “real” world. I can now truly empathize with addicts, convicts or any human who leaves a structured environment to return to their previous world of reality. I understand why the relapse rate for old behavior is so high. Recycling would be a more positive word.

I immersed myself back into my real world as vulnerable as a newborn baby. Shamans randomly surrounded me everywhere I went. My life has been filled with synchronicity. The best of the best? Our September editorial theme just happens to be focused on healing music, shamans and yoga. I struggled while experiencing growth with my new transformational insights. It has been overwhelming, empowering and peaceful—often all at the same time. I listened and acted on the blatant coincidental messages loud and clear. I took the plunge and placed my newborn self into the arms of local healers like Marc Malin , Deepak Chariand Linda White. Collectively, they have enabled me to crawl back into my everyday world with a new outlook on my future. Baby steps can be hard to do when we are accustomed to charging full force ahead. My energy and awareness are at record highs with healthy boundaries in place. I now honor my limits. More importantly I respect the power of nature and shamans. I never fully believed the impact our ancestry and family imprinting can have on us. I do now. It’s huge in my world as I slowly work through it and replenish my rebirth with the help of these and other healers. What feels like innovative technology is ancient modalities rapidly becoming mainstream.

Due to all of our technical advancements, medical achievements and faced-paced lives, it’s easy to fall prey to an easy fix. There is no easy way out of who we are and where we come from. There is a pathway into our hearts and souls to balance our mind, body and spirits. I heal through helping others heal. A wise shaman at ceremony one night in Rythmia shared that when one of us heals, we all heal. May this issue do just that!
