Finding Happiness Through Being With Your Soul Tribe: Susan and Lisa rocking it!

This past weekend, I had the privilege and the joy of getting to spend time with my “soul tribe” – other life coaches who are looking to expand our businesses and do fun, transformational work in the world.

I have followed and admired the amazing Martha Beck Certified Master Life Coach Susan Hyatt for years, and I got to hang out with her and 11 other women in a mansion in Savannah, Georgia for a few days to work on our business plans and visions for the future.

Nice work if you can get it! We played and shared and plotted our future directions, and checked out the “haunted” city of Savannah.

Being with my soul tribe is one of the ways I find and grow my happiness.

Returning “Home” to My Soul’s Work 

I genuinely believe that empowering women to live their dreams is part of the work that I was “born” to do on earth.

Being surrounded by other powerful, world-changing women who cheered me on as I worked on my visions, and helped me dissolve any remaining fears about moving forward, was both liberating and empowering for me.

The group also helped me to remember and tap into my own magic. I have experienced so many true miracles in this lifetime, and sometimes forget in the rush of daily life just how magical it can all be.

I got to tell the gang the story about meeting Eckhart Tolle right outside the Grand Canyon right before 11/11/11, on a day when I was told I would become the female Eckhart Tolle by a psychic intuitive healer. You can read more about that here.

It was my “Miracle Day,” the most incredible 24 hours of my life so far, in which I truly got it that there is a force much greater than I am – a powerful energy that can orchestrate miracles that are beyond imagining.

My mind was officially blown.

I got it that we all stand in a field of infinite possibilities, all the time; that life on earth is a quantum reality and the universe shifts as we shift. We often limit ourselves with our own thinking and limiting beliefs, fears and doubts, while what is actually possible is beyond the scope of our imagining.

I want to live like this again and always, leaning into the biggest possible expansion so I can live a life beyond my wildest dreams. I truly believe that when I surrender my own will and follow my path where I feel divinely guided to go that my life will exceed even my own high expectations.

I have always found that to be the case. Planet Earth may be a challenging place to live in some ways, but it is still a magical place to grow, play and create.

I love thinking of this planet as my global playground.

Enjoying All The Magic! 

The whole trip was full of synchronicities and magic. My Eckhart Tolle story includes a blind date with a FedEx pilot, who I “bumped into” two days later at a gas station in Flagstaff, Arizona, three hours from where he lives in Phoenix.

Mind officially blown.

I interpreted this “coincidence” as “The World On Time,” which is FedEx’s slogan. Just after I finished relating this story to a woman at the retreat who channels angels, a FedEx truck pulled up in the alley, directly in our line of vision from the balcony where we sat.

The world on time.

Giving Out Miracles!

I found “miracle medallions” at the Saints and Shamrocks store two blocks from the mansion, and purchased one for all of the women on the trip, including our fearless leader, Susan Hyatt. Turns out that she used to wear the same Mother Mary miracles medallion on a long chain in high school.

On the day that I had to fly back to New York, I was wondering around Savannah’s historic downtown, and decided to work on my laptop for a while at the Gallery Espresso Café, which is Susan’s favorite. I bumped into another member of the group there, and it turns out that we were taking the same flight through Charlotte together (of course) so we agreed to take a cab to the airport together.

While at the café, a man who was a doppelganger for a past love sat across from me, and I ended up showing him the picture of me and this man (his twin). He said, “Maybe it means that we are meant to be together.”

“Maybe,” I said. Or maybe it means that I am supposed to heal from that one forever, and move on all the way.

Who knows … the universe works in magical, mysterious ways.

Looking Forward to Creating From A Space of Magic and Miracles!

I feel like this trip brought me right back to where I was on 11/11/11, knocked out by the magic of the universe. I was blown away that I’d been told I would become the female Eckhart Tolle, and that I bumped into him less than 24 hours later at a gas station.

I “bumped into” the dashingly handsome FedEx pilot – the World on Time, remember? – at another gas station that very same day. I still am amazed thinking back on those events, and cannot begin to understand what the odds were for those two events to transpire in the same day.

Matt, the FedEx pilot, said, “100% I guess!” when I asked him what the odds were of us bumping into one another at a random gas station three hours away from where he lived in Phoenix, Arizona, only two days after I’d met him on a blind date for the first time.

Maybe the odds ARE 100% sometimes for miracles. Maybe the universe wants to demonstrate clearly to us sometimes just how magical it can all be.

I choose to believe in miracles, and to create from this energy space. I have experienced too many miracles in this lifetime so far to doubt that they happen, or that they can change my life.

Savannah gave me that magic and miracles energy back. I am so grateful for my time with Susan and so many other powerful women.

To all the magic and miracles in my life, and yours. Believe, keep the faith, take bold action towards your dreams – and watch for the miracle moments.
