Although I am in a complete state of overwhelm, outpouring emotion and elation, I have the desire to write about THE MOST INSPIRING day of my life. There are so many people to thank, however, I will wait to do this when I am in a more grounded & rested place.
First things first, when I checked in at the beautiful Fairmont Palliser Hotel, I found out that the room I was staying in, was where the Dalai Lama spent the last 2 nights – the photo of the orchid to the left, is the orchid the Palliser gave to the Dalai Lama! All the ladies that shared an incredible evening, felt his beautiful peaceful energy as we were graced with the presence of Best Selling author Janet Bray Attwood ~ author of The Passion Test. Her surprise visit to our room resulted in an incredible sharing of 20 something women sharing their stories and inspiring each other. Many life long connections were made last night – THANK YOU Janet for joining us – you truly are an amazing woman and made our evening!
Today is life changing for me, and that of many people I love, many new people I met and for anyone who attended today that chooses to apply Jack Canfield’s incredible message!
The morning began disastrously, nothing went right with set up – NOTHING.. I am choosing not to focus on what went wrong, however I do need to mention this to lead in to what happened next… I was overwhelmed, operating on 3 hours sleep, shaking like a leaf and was just told the emcee wasn’t showing up (he did show up at the last minute, poor Ian got lost!), and asked if I could step in… OMG I have never done anything like this in my life. I walked over to Jack and asked him to give me grounding energy. Jack held me in his arms and hugged me for what seemed an eternity, and softly spoke a few words that brought me into the present moment, to let go and believe. This hug grounded me throughout the entire day, as I spoke for the very first time in front of over 600 people.
I want to keep this succinct, so I am going to share the highlights and will write in more detail, add the incredible photos (once I receive permission) over the next couple of days…
Jack Canfield is now my favourite speaker that I have witnessed, and I have had the privilege of listening to many of the Top Inspirational & motivational speakers… Anthony Robbins, Dr Wayne W. Dyer, Sir Richard Branson…and the list goes on. Jack is the real deal, he is a man true to his word, who walks his talk. I watched in awe as this incredible man interacted with the entire room on so many levels. I believe I can say EVERYONE in that room today was touched and inspired at some level by his Authenticity, humour, passion, love for his family and willingness to serve others – just to name a few.
What I took away from today:
- I am ready to step into my brilliance
- My purpose is to inspire, educate and empower people to live life on Purpose with authenticity and passion, embracing generosity & gratitude!
- There are 3 stages : 1. Repair & Recovery 2. Foundation 3. Abundance
- I am in the Abundance stage, allowing it to happen and receive it – educating others, having fun and serving others.
- When I am in my flow and in alignment with my purpose, values and vision I am able to inspire others to feel their hearts.
- When like minded strangers come into a room, miracles happen
Many people shared their stories with me today and all touched my heart at a profound and very deep level – you know who you are – I gave you my business card and I invite you (as I do not write something unless I have permission) to send me an email, or comment on this post and share your story of Inspiration and courage – I will be calling each of you directly on Tuesday… why not now you may ask…..
Well NOW, I need to honour my body, honour my wonderful family – Neil & my beautiful girls who have persevered, been patient & supported me, while I have spent countless hours away from them dedicating my time to make this all happen, without them I would not be here – I love you!
So I end, with a final word of inspiration and empowerment – Share your AHAs from today, I invite you to post your comments long or short… inspire others to be Simplee Serene – Simplee = simplicity & Serene = shining bright and steady, and step into your brilliance…
