The Wentzville Holistic Adventurers Group got together this past weekend. I learned that I really don't know much about stones and crystals. Of course, they really aren't my passion. I am more of an essential oil girl. Though I am able to share my knowledge in quite a few other areas...my knowledge is limited in others. This is where I am truly hoping that my fellow members will continue to share their own knowledge, so that we benefit as a whole.
The interesting part is how we have all been taught so differently about similar subjects. Reiki is a great example. When I provide Reiki sessions or treatments...I often trace Reiki symbols on the roof of my mouth. This allows me to focus on my hands and energy transfers without interruption. Some Reiki practitioners have never heard of this before...now does this mean that they or I am wrong? Absolutely not! It's just different techniques for different people. Whatever gets us to our ultimate goal...which is making ourselves and our world a better place. At least, that is is my goal. :)
This is the attitude I always bring to our meetings. I have always wanted this group to a safe place to share opinions, beliefs and thoughts. I believe it is, and I believe it will continue to be...it's important that when people join our group...to realize that I may do things in a completely different way than what they are used to...members may favor one energy healing technique over another...occasionally we/I will mispronounce the name of something...that we are all still learning and growing.
There will be times I will "wing it"...and other times it will be more structured. I find myself becoming too concerned with trying to make everyone happy at our meet ups. This is a pressure I put on myself, and is never created or presented by my fantastic members. I, sometimes, find myself doubting my abilities to organize this group. Then I realize that this is part of my "ego" and fear...these are our limiting factors that prevents our ability to grow spiritually and darkens our path to enlightenment. Fun fact about myself: I have a fear of public speaking...lol...go figure!
As our group continues to meet, please attend with an open heart and mind. I love all our group members. It has been amazing to meet other people who have similar beliefs. It makes you feel less lonely in the world. Thank you to each and every one of you. You are making my world a better place.
