A few months later, I was very honored to have her ask me to give the Sunday lesson at her community, and yesterday was the day! The setting was absolutely beautiful, the people, like Rev. Jill, very warm and welcoming, the morning meditation was amazing, and the music from special guest Holly Pyle was heart-opening.
My lesson was called, “That’s my story … and I’m willing to give it up!” In it, I talked about how we all have a story – a collection of experiences we’ve had in our lives. But we often latch onto the challenging ones, making them the central narrative our subconscious mind uses to filter current and future experiences.
However, by separating that facts of what happened in a given situation from our interpretation of what happened, we can make conscious choices guided by our Higher Selves about whether or not those stories are serving us any longer.
Afterwards, many people told me they resonated with the message, some sharing their challenges—past and present—and their willingness to reframe them in order to chart a new conscious path for the future.
It was a wonderful, spirit-led morning and I know I was equally blessed, if not more, for having the opportunity to share my story with them.
