Sacred Journeys & Sacred Healing – Bimini and Beyond


Egypt

What is experienced and integrated into your life from a sacred journey is priceless. Having experienced many sacred journeys in power spots across the globe, I can personally attest to how empowering these experiences can be and they continue to work their magic in unforeseen ways, long after the experience itself.

Bimini, and the surrounding area, is one of those magical places that lovingly supports you into integrating and being more of who you really are. With its Atlantean connection it is no wonder that many are drawn here, especially the visionaries, healing arts missionaries, and creatives of the world. It can reawaken potentialities from deep within that you have struggled with or desired greater enhancement towards.

This is why I’ve been led to offer supportive experiences to others in the form of retreats in sacred areas, so that others may also have opportunity to benefit from, receive, and activate their own integrative healing that is enhanced in places like this. I’ve always felt that once I have experienced and been able to process the energy available from one of these enlivening and power spots on Earth, that I am then able to better facilitate and be there completely for others upon returning to do collective service.

There are layers to my soul history that have been uncovered and activated by my journeys across the globe. And these have continued to integrate and process through my life and the work that I do, upon initiating the triggers through downloads of energy and awakening remembrances on my trips. The effects of sacred journeys continue long after the initial visit. Although can seem most profound initially, the vibrational resonance keeps on vibrating and rippling out. 🙂

And for some, the initial experience isn’t as dramatic, and then it evolves later or subtly so that you do in fact transform, but it is in a way more suited to your individual needs.

We all have different experiences, relative to us. And it all is in Divine unfolding always. I have many varying stories of my experiences from all of my journeys (could fill a few books) and how they have supported the tapestry of my life, and there will continue to be more when I venture to sacred areas I haven’t in this life yet reintegrated. One of which will be in a few months in the sacred area of the Himalayas.

It’s not that we have to journey to these areas in order to integrate energy. Since we are all connected, then when one soul taps into an experience and potential, that experience and potential becomes available to us all. Plus, some of us know how to “journey” to these places telepathically and remotely. However, there are some of us that can greatly benefit from “physically” experiencing the energy and the tremendous shifts it can support that is like no other tool explored, and some of us who are meant to do this kind of “experiencing” and work to assist the collective.

The more areas I work with, the more journeys of this kind I am able to offer in service to others. It’s not that we can’t venture to these areas on our own, but I have found that a lot of powerful things can be triggered and to have a support system and someone who understands the experience and energy, can really help the process.

The most powerfully transformative Kundalini experience took place for me in Egypt the first time I was there and I was grateful to have the two experienced hosts (one of whom was a sound healer) along, as well as my parents and ex-husband at the time who had all been attuned to Reiki 1, coincidentally “just” before the trip and were able to support me through it. The most powerful turning point of that experience, however, was uncovering a soul and key part of myself through my own sound healing that literally overnight integrated my healing into renewal and rebirth.

I will continue to support others in power spots I “have” ventured to as long as I am guided collectively to do so. New journeys to be announced shortly.

Until then, the collective heart leads me back to Bimini this June for the Summer Solstice – a place that more and more people are being drawn for their own reawakenings, and the powerfully transformative and loving retreat experience we have to offer at The ARC lends exponentially to that.

We’re only about a month away now from embarking on another enlivening journey in Bimini, Bahamas. It’s the kind of experience that forever stays in your heart and forever transforms you in the most positive of ways, not to mention connects you to a new soul family of like minded brothers and sisters.

Bimini is one of the places that holds a strong energetic and heart connection for me. It has a very prominent place in my soul story and the service I have committed my heart to is encapsulated in experiences of my times there, so I love to share its magic with others and to support a journey of awakening in one of the most powerful energy spots across the globe.

That’s why I follow the energy of the collective needs and intuitively create a mirroring experience that reflects current needs of the group that will join. And this is true for this next journey there – it is unfolding daily, as I watch and feel what is going on collectively and challenge deeper parts of myself to come forth for the process, so that I can help to support the same for others.

Alongside the aqua waters, sunshine, sand, wild dolphin swims, snorkeling, Atlantis Vortex trip on Summer Solstice, yoga, raw food, fun, and relaxation, I am guided to bring into this summer’s retreat experience, supportive integration via the doorway of Reiki, but going beyond.

On our 6 night and 6 day retreat I will be supporting each person within the group to a deepening and expanding of the Heart Chakra through attunement to Reiki Level 1, which will be a shared experience of teaching and learning, gaining an understanding of and experiencing the Reiki energy, receiving an initiation, and becoming certified. This will help you begin the journey of more gracefully creating harmony and peace in your daily life and in your interactions to help center you more in compassion to be able to assist yourself and others. Once we have, then we will be gently journeying into deeper levels.

You will have access to any support I can provide during your time on this retreat with personal attention to meet your desired goals. We will also participate in global and personal healing intentions and sessions that will take you on a life-enhancing and empowering new path.

I believe that integration is a key point to supporting us to the next experience of life that we desire to have. I feel that doing the deeper work really makes the difference and helps you to understand the continuous triggering taking place and supports you to move through the frustrations of wondering why things are not improving when you are doing so much spiritual stuff already.

Some of the ways integrative healing work can be facilitated is not always in linear processes, but can be accessed through vibrational experiences that penetrate at the core, regardless if you understand or are conscious of what is taking place. Think sound healing, energy, mantras….This is some of what you will “experience,” alongside practical tools and meditations. I like to be guided by the moment and the energy needs of the group to see where it takes us in flow so I look forward to what may transpire, all the while 100% being there to support each of you. I’ve already received guidance that crystals, healing art, and my unique sound melody healing may make an appearance to support healing and empowerment from the inside out. We will play it by heart…

Integrative Healing & Reiki – New Experiences In Store for You on this Year’s Bimini Retreat

I’ve posted a lot about all of the amazing experiences and offerings that are available to you during our Summer Solstice Rhythm of Renewal Retreat in Bimini, Bahamas at The ARC, but I haven’t delved into more about what will make this journey unique in terms of what will be facilitated, as there has been a continuous flow of energy shifts I’ve been riding in terms of how to best support that. Everything is constantly changing and so I am open to where that leads in order to provide what is in highest alignment.

No matter how much I describe or share photos, I always come up short in being able to express the actual experience of what a retreat like this can bring, especially due to the fact that we create with what the moment brings us, which can always be such a journey of wonderment and surprise.

However, I have been guided to expound a little more on the the aspects of Reiki and the healing journey that you will embark upon with my support, especially since these have shifted since I first posted the retreat.

As always, I am listening to where Spirit guides me and matching the resonance of the Collective’s needs with what I’m being shown to offer.

If you follow my blog posts, you may notice a lot of focus on “integration,” which has always been my focal point of the work I do in totality since the get-go.

“Integration” and a “return to natural harmony” – HUGE for me! – and all focused on the inner truth stillness and power of the heart.

Actually, my original business name when I first began things many years ago was “Integrative Healing Arts.” I still use this term to describe my work and services all the time, but now it just goes under a new umbrella of “Emerald Bridge,” which represents the Heart Chakra “integrative energy” that “bridges” and merges things into harmony.

See a theme here? It all goes hand-in-hand and focuses on that unconditionally loving and compassionate energy that honors all and empowers from the inside out.

So, what I am guided to bring into the experience, this summer’s retreat, is supporting integration and bringing our Reiki training to another level with some added goodies. 🙂

On our 6 night and 6 day retreat I will be supporting each person within the group to become attuned to Reiki Level 1, which will be a shared experience of teaching and learning, gaining an understanding of and experiencing the Reiki energy, receiving an initiation, and becoming certified. Once we have, then we will be journeying into practicing on deeper levels with practical applications and experiences to support your own and others’ integrative healing journeys, which will be inclusive of and beyond Reiki.

This will be a week of transformational experiences that will lead you to greater sense of self, clarity, empowerment, peace, joy, and deeper love and compassion. One of the focuses will be on deepening and expanding your heart through Reiki (pronounced ray-key).

The practice of channeling Reiki is an easy-to-learn, gentle and powerful system of natural healing that reduces stress, induces relaxation, supports intentions, helps return you to a more natural and clearer flow on all levels, and provides many other healing benefits. The Reiki class offered is part of the Traditional Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Certification Training.

In Reiki Level 1, you’ll learn about the history, principles, ethics and practice of Reiki and the foundations that really are at the “heart” of its essence that are important to consistently embody. You’ll experience Reiki, receive an attunement and start a 21-day energetic cleanse. You’ll learn scanning, Reiki lineage, hand positions for giving in-person, hands-on treatments to others and yourself, (including your animal companions) and more. This class can help you begin the journey of creating more harmony and peace in your daily life and in your interaction with people to help center you more in compassion.

Whether you are new to Reiki, have already been through Reiki Level 1, are preparing to teach and want a refresher, or want to incorporate Reiki into your current healing practice, you will find these classes to be supportive and timely in terms of the now.

This offering is provided with intention to help you to step gracefully into learning how to support yourself, other people and animals towards compassionate goals, intentions and worldwide healing and change.

You will have access to any support I can provide during your time on this retreat with personal attention to meet your desired goals. We will also participate in global and personal healing intentions and sessions that will take you on a life-enhancing and empowering new path.

And as the group comes through the Reiki Level 1 experience together, we will then continue our journey with deepening this experience and supporting that integrative healing.

I believe that integration is a key point to supporting us to the next experience of life that we desire to have. I feel that doing the deeper work really makes the difference and helps you to understand the continuous triggering taking place and supports you to move through the frustrations of wondering why things are not improving when you are doing so much spiritual stuff already.

So, rather than skip levels, which we have all fallen into doing at one point or another, we’ll focus on some ways to work more deeply and all-encompassing through guided meditations for personal and collective connecting, practical tuning in as we practice Reiki, doing some personal and group work to look within,  and also be guided by the moment and the energy needs of the group to where it takes us in flow.

I look forward to what may transpire, all the while 100% being there to support each of you. There may even be some spontaneous fun with crystals, healing art, and my unique sound melody healing may make an appearance if the occasion arises to support integrative healing. We will play it by heart…

“Wholeness, healing, integration; that is what the inner journey is about, and it happens when our inner and outer selves, when the world within us and the world around us merge as one. We experience this fleetingly through music. I feel it deeply, often through song.”

“It is the closest I have ever come to wholeness, and I suspect to holiness as well. It is where I turn in search of healing, not to be alone in my isolation but in order to center myself within the Center of all my longing, within that Presence, that Power, where all that lives resides.”

“Through music all life can be present to us, and in some sense present within us…For some, music accompanies their inner journey into wholeness and healing; for others it is the journey itself, the journey into ultimate meaning. When we embrace music as a healing presence, we are already home.” ~Miriam Therese Winter

Integrating, to me, means lovingly recognizing, honoring, embracing, surrendering to, healing, and bringing together so that unification and harmony can be experienced at all stages and on all levels. It is a process of transmutation involving going beyond things like affirmations, and understanding what the feelings that prompted the affirmations have to share and teach us while learning how to lovingly support and understand their process. In doing so, you learn that life is more than black and white and within the gray you will discover unconditional love and compassion for others, as well as realize that you are loved in all of your wholeness at every step of the journey.

“The moment you completely accept your non-peace, your non-peace becomes transmuted into peace. Anything you accept fully will take you into peace. This is the miracle of surrender.”  ~Eckhart Tolle 

I am very much looking forward to our beautiful experience together and where it leads us. And of course alongside all of this, the retreat will be enhanced and supported by the rest of the magic offered at The ARC – wild dolphin swims, sacred site snorkeling, raw vegan food, yoga, the energy and mysticism of Atlantis, and a lot of loving support.
