Summer is most definitely coming to an end. I was bragging to others on my trip to NY how the sun sets at about 10pm in England, to find that the days were getting shorter when we got back to London, with the sun now setting at about 8.
Since I’ve been back from this super busy trip (where I did many things including take a sound healing certification course, celebrate my wedding with NY friends and family, and took a trip to beautiful Montauk) , I’ve been feeling like I’m still busy- one reason being that I am planning another trip abroad soon, in Switzerland/Italy. I will see Teal Swan, an amazing spiritual teacher I mention all the time, in one of her synchronicity workshops in Basel. Then I will take a train along the Swiss/Italian alps to Lake Como, and will probably stop in Milan (which is famous for its tarot history and novelties- more on that to come!) for a bit before flying back to London.
But I got to see Teal in London the other day, actually. I’d thought it would be more worth it to attend her Switzerland workshop than the one in London (long story), but found that due to her popularity, there was another day added to her tour here that was reasonable in value for me. So, I saw Teal this past Monday. One thing had led to another that morning, and I arrived quite early. Early enough to be able to sit front and center. I found that a ‘thing’ people do at her events is bring their crystals and lay it on the stage, so that the stones could absorb her teachings. What a great idea! I took off all the crystal jewelry I had- a tiger’s eye bracelet and bloodstone pendant, and laid it on the stage.
When Teal arrived on the stage, I found that tears were coming to my eyes. I don’t know why. I was embarrassed. I was crying for most of the beginning of the workshop.
I’d had one dream about Teal before, and realized that day that it was a prophetic one. In my dream, Teal’s eyes looked so piercing and unreal. I was surprised to find her eyes had that effect on me in ‘real life’ as well. In my dream, I’d become scared; nervous of what she’d see. She said nothing and though she sat next to me, she turned away. In the workshop, I did not get to interact with her, though I was in the front (I almost didn’t sit there cause I was shy!), and even looked away from her a few times. I did not raise my hand and try to go up on stage- in part because I was afraid of being seen, and exposing all my deep, shadowy stuff.
Teal said that this was the smallest crowd she’s ever done a workshop with, and that honestly it was intense and intimidating for her. As a singer, I completely understood- being on stage in a small space is very scary! At the end of the talk, Teal told us that we were a very conscious crowd; that we have a sense of our life purpose. She told us to keep doing what we are doing; not to take life so seriously; to be light. Life is a game. From the universal perspective, it goes in a blink of an eye. Have fun! I felt this message was very relevant to me. I was so exhausted after the workshop. I can just imagine how tired Teal must have been!
So, in just a few days, I will be on my way to Switzerland to see Teal again. I’ve always wanted to go to Switzerland (ever since I did a school report on it at age 11), so this is a great opportunity for me to do so. It’s funny- I have traveled on my own many times now, but I am nervous about getting lost or missing a train. Updates soon to come on this upcoming journey!
