Hey beautiful souls,
It’s been another exciting week!
We’ve had the kick off of the first “Lightworkers Unite” gathering, another successful “Get What You Need Out of Life” Workshop and of course, the launch of the first Green Vine newsletter! It’s been 7 days of kicking goals! Woot! Woot!
On Sunday we launched the first “Lightworkers Unite” gathering and on Saturday we had yet another successful “Get What You Need Out of Life” Workshop. And just when we thought we couldn’t fly any higher, the week has seen us receive a steady stream of positive feedback about the first Green Vine Newsletter! Yayyyy!
Sundays Spiritual Nourishment was a beautiful gathering of Lightworkers Uniting. We immersed ourselves in guided meditation, soulful conversations, shared pearls of wisdom, drank aromatic teas and had tasty nibbles.With a strong sense of oneness as we stood at the sacred fire burning our intentions, we were totally re-energerised,renewed and revitalised.
It’s always so humbling to welcome other Lightworkers to Green Leaves Retreat! You beautiful spirits spend so much of your lives helping and assisting others. What a blessing it is to know that Green Leaves Retreat offers you a reprieve by making it all about YOU, what YOU need – and what YOU desire. Ahhhhh what a sign of relief! It was beautiful to see you walk out refreshed, with a kick in your step and with refreshed energy, ready to take on the week, truly inspiring!
Meanwhile as I write, I’m in a chocolate recovery mode. And not for the obvious reasons.
A lovely person at the cafe gifted me a chocolate Easter Egg! “Truly, an Easter Egg already?”, I hear you say. Anyway, on Automatic Pilot, I gave thanks and then popped the chocolate egg into my bag. This was a no-brainer. I just love chocolate and I was keeping it for Ron (later–Ron!).
As with the value of retrospect it became obvious that “popping” the chocolate into my bag was not the best action for me to undertake! It’s 38 °C and yes, you guessed it, the chocolate egg melted everywhere. Everything in my bag was coated in chocolate! My purse, loose coins, in every crevice of my phone and just to make it all more exciting, I was wearing white clothing!! Unbeknownst to me I even helped with the chocolate smearing process! Ohhhhh noooo!
Hmmmmm- what did I learn from this experience?
I’ve learnt not to accept chocolate from strangers …no only joking ….I’ve learnt to be grateful that it wasn’t a bar of chocolate and that my clothes, coins, makeup can be washed, and I’m thankful that my bag is small and lined! I’m thankful that I was able to wipe my phone. I’m also thankful that the chocolate didn’t get into my hair, I am thankful that I had a tap nearby, thankful that I have a home so I could go back and clean up, thankful that I have a washing machine, thankful that I was gifted the chocolate, thankful that it was a really hot day because it meant that my handbag dried out in literally a number of minutes and finally, I’m thankful that it occurred. Why? Because now I have been able to share with you how I’ve changed something which would normally be perceived as a Negative into a Positive!!
So, this experience identifies that our thoughts dictate our perceptions and our moods. It therefore makes lots of sense to become aware of your thoughts and when something that you don’t like occurs, “Flip It”, make it positive.
Now I’m in an awesome mood!
Thanks for “listening” and the moral of the tale? Don’t save your chocolate for Ron!
