A Year Ago I Died
I remember the crystal blue sky. The sounds of the Meditterrean Sea crashing against the rocks and the dolphins playing close by. They were beckoning me to come closer. As I peered down the edge of the rocks, I knew in my heart there was a path. So I put one foot in front of the other and started to walk. I approached the trees that were guarding the entrance and asked silently for entrance to the pathway. Yes there they were stairs. I followed the stairs down the steep staircase towards the edge of the sea. I was being pulled like a magnet. The force was stronger the closer I got. Then the pathway stopped, yet I still wasn’t as close as I knew I could be. I peered around the rocks and there was the stairs continuing further to the edge. I continued down. The pull was stronger. My heart felt as though it would burst. The smell of the sea was intoxicating. I just had to go.
By this time I realized two of the ladies were following me and chatting amongst themselves. I was in my own world. A spell had been cast upon me, the outside world seemed a blur. The draw was intense. "Come closer. Come closer", were the words I heard. Around the corner I saw the rock platform and the edge just jutted out into the sea. I had to go. I felt the calling. I stepped onto the platform. It all happened so suddenly. As I had stepped…I also slid forward with my left leg. It was dragging me towards the edge of the rock, pulling me to the sea! My back leg stayed, as my left leg slid. Just centimetres away from the edge I stopped, now in the complete splits. Every part of me was split into two. I felt as if I was out of my body.
The next is blurry because I was not in my body at this time. I remember I had put my hand out to signal the ladies to stop. I slowly pulled myself to my knees. All I could hear were the dolphins singing. Then I heard the angelic singing. I saw the golden light and the beautiful golden people. I saw a city. I heard words in my head that were very familiar. Yet not the language I speak today. I heard the calling to come home. It was so beautiful and so peaceful. I felt the pull out of my body. The tears were flowing down my face like a waterfall. I felt as if I was in two places at once, conscious of both at the same “time". I am not sure how much time passed before I came back into my body and opened my eyes. I recall that when I did that I turned my gaze to the two ladies sitting at the edge of the rock platform. They had been holding the energetic space for me. They had tears in their eyes. Both of them are very tuned into their gifts. One said to me, “Atlantis”. I had heard the words Atlantis. I just nodded. Still reeling from the trip.
It is challenging to explain to you exactly what had happened that day. The power of that experience has changed my life. That day, I died. That day I took a trip to place where I had been before in a different time. Whether you believe or not, is of no concern to me. It was "my" experience. My gift. My opportunity to experience. I can also tell you this. The feeling was so "amazing" and "beautiful". It was very difficult to come back. See once you experience bliss why would you want to experience anything else.
My life back in Paris was not so blissful anymore. A lot had shifted. A lot that I had to go "home" and take a look at and ask myself some important questions. "Is this how I wanted to live my life forever?" Things had changed in my relationship with myself and my husband. He was still an amazing and wonderful man. Yet our paths were now different. Because I now had this awareness, I knew I needed to make a choice for us, as he would not. I would require the courage to say "yes" to something only I could see.
This day I died and came back. Back with a new perspective on life and what this "journey of love" really is. Love, love for me first. Only then could I BE love for everyone else.
Allow me to share with you a beautiful woman's words. She is going to share her journey of love through her personal experience with me. Meet Kim.
I first met Leona Wallace face to face in Paris, France almost exactly one year to
date. I was traveling from Grand Rapids, Michigan to the Paris Divine Beauty
Experience with my dear friend Jana. A train ride took us from the Charles De
Gaulle Airport to the train/bus station where Leona welcomed and assisted us on
the last leg of the trip via bus to our Airbnb accommodation in the
1st arrondissement in Paris. Previous to our first face to face meeting, Leona and
I had met through Skype in weekly meetings where we both held appointed
positions in a global humanitarian service organization. Quite often before the
meeting roll-call or following the meeting, there would be casual conversation
among us that gave opportunity to get to know one another a little more each
time. It was during this time that I started following Leona’s links to Self Love,
Divine Beauty and Awaken The Beauty. I was mostly curious really. What did it
mean to have ‘Self Love’? I’d spent the better part of my life caring for the health
of my body…that’s a form of self love, isn’t it? And what of my mind and spirit,
I’ve cared for those aspects of myself also, I thought, I can’t be that far off
from self love, can I? So Leona posts an announcement of a Divine Beauty
Experience she’s hosting in Paris. I private message her telling how
awesome she’s having this experience in Paris, that for the longest time I’ve
been wanting to go there…Nearly immediately Leona reposts a change to the
original post saying she felt divinely compelled to step out on a limb by offering
a much reduced price to the original Paris Divine Beauty Experience. I could not resist. As they say, there are no coincidences. Saying YES to the Divine Beauty Experience in Paris was a catalyst that has set into motion a journey of love, fun, beauty, divine purpose and the reuniting of soul family.
So I have just completed a four month Awaken Divine Beauty Coaching Scholarship with Leona. Truthfully I don’t think I would have taken on this kind coaching if it had not been for saying Yes to Ireland Divine Beauty in September of last year, a few months following the Paris experience.
Simply because— being in Ireland engaged me in a whole knew way of experiencing myself— sparking channels of trust and love to open a little more each day, allowing myself to dive deeper into the journey with less censoring, while engaging in a similar journey with 9 other travel sisters. I was open to having a heartfelt, fun experience :)
Saying Yes to my desire to go to Paris was an act of self love. Saying Yes to my soul calling to go to Ireland was an act of self love. Saying Yes to coaching Awaken Divine Beauty with Leona was an act of self love and a meeting with destiny.
