When I wrote the title of this blog, 3 months in, I had to look at the calendar a couple of times. I really can't believe that I've only been here for 3 months. It feels like a year has passed since I've arrived here. The Sedona energy is real. And, it's been kicking me around for the last 3 months. I've always been one for change and growth and upheaval if it means finding my highest and best path, but wow, I've had a roller coaster of a time since being here.
My first two and a half months in Sedona were very different from what I had expected. I was being invited to Goddess Yoga and Sister Divine and was asked to go up the mountains to purify and cleanse myself while taking part in rituals. I was invited to join groups with the urging of a friend here, but none of it felt right. My intuition would pull me back and tell me not to go. I had no idea what was going on. Isn't this the purpose of my trip to Sedona? Aren't drum circles, ecstatic dancing, and reconnecting with my people exactly what I came for?
I was expecting a certain type of Sedona experience and when it didn't look like what I had planned, I got frustrated and it was bringing up a lot of stuff for me to look at.
I was being called to go inward, and although being in my own space, meditating, etc... is definitely a part of who I am, I'm also an extremely social person. Connecting with people is what lights me up. So being this introverted and alone has been an interesting/difficult experience. However, many things have shifted for me.
I have let go of more emotional baggage (I'm always shedding and letting go but these were some deep-rooted issues). Some of which I thought I had dealt with years ago, but there were still some threads hanging on.
I have connected with my authentic self in more and deeper ways.
My intuition has been on overdrive and I have been following it, even when it's led me to some deeply uncomfortable places.
I have developed new parts of my business, courses/membership site, that I will be launching soon and this has given me the chance to sit without distractions to create the new.
I have let go of a lot of past relationships and have made some amazing, deeper connections.
I feel more aligned to my purpose than ever before. I am without a doubt someone who continuously rewrites their life and makes significant changes, and this is certainly one of those transformative periods for me.
Most of all, I have been led to go deeper into my healings with others in a more profound way and have seen some glimpses into the future of what and how I will be serving people. Travel and groups are in the plan.
I'll be here for another two months before going to Florida for a few weeks to see my family before returning home to Massachusetts. But two months in Sedona is like a short lifetime, so who knows what will happen next. I'm just trying to stay in the flow and allow the Sedona energy to work through me!
