there is much beauty in this life

I've been re-entering my usual life for the past 24 hours after attending a workshop this weekend, level two of the Flames meditation classes. It's two days of mostly meditation, which might not sound like something very hard, and it isn't while you're doing it, but after... Reentry is the proper term; it can be as chaotic/fiery/bumpy as reentry from space back through our atmosphere. Going from an environment of high energy, total love and support back to...well, everyday life, is a real bucket of cold water. It's worse when you know it's coming.

The workshop was fabulous, of course. I love this technique, *love love love*. Looking forward to levels 3 and 4, and eventually teaching it. Meanwhile, just radiating the flames in meditation for the healing/raising of energies, from the personal, to others, to our country, to the world, is a very satisfying thing to do everyday. When I do, I am aware of being part of a tradition of shamans/wiseones/priests/yogis/monks/etc that stretches back to the dawn of time, that exists in the ethers always, always acted upon by the teachers, wise ones, healers, angels and enlightened beings who constantly imagine the world into beingness.

There is much beauty in this life that invigorates us, that has coalesced to become matter. It is up to us to shake the darkness off and uncover it.

*hugs* Glad you enjoyed your workshop. I'm enjoying mine, too, with many many opportunities to delve deep into healing spaces, and learn more (much more) about managing energies. Oh, also, the VA job posted, of course, while I am away from home and need to print forms and send in things such as a copy of my psych license. Oh well -- I'll call them tomorrow and see what kind of leeway I have (deadline is the 22nd, well before I am due back in L.A.), or if I need to ask my mother to overnight mail me various things.

of all the timing--! Naturally :-) And Mercury goes retrograde on the 22nd! So...I wouldn't wait, even if they let you, frankly. The process of hiring will probably, knowing the government and Mercury, take longer because of that, and there would be no desire on your part, I'm sure, to chance getting your stuff screwed up in some way--lost, misread, mishandled, etc--due to sending it in under the Merc retro. Go ahead and have your mom send stuff from home...and devo, even if you take a small trip back up there to handle it yourself, it wouldn't be a wasted effort, given the fact *this* is the job you've been waiting for.' 'K? :::smooches::: Glad you're enjoying the trance workshop! I knew it would be good for you!

Fortunately (and miraculously), my mother was able to locate the two documents I needed in my room and express mail them to me. I was able to download and print, the pdf forms I need from the hotel computer, and I was able to fax the transcript request I need to Fordham. I still need to fill out the forms and write a letter about my training and skills, but it's all coming together and I should be able to get this out in the next few days. Woo hoo!

That's great! I knew you'd be able to get it together. Cool.

Flame meditation???
is there a URL for the workshops?

That's a good question...not sure. George James, an IA and PAT teacher, is teaching these (they were conceived by Marie Diamond and I'm sure there are other teachers out there, but you want to take it from George...he's a phenomenal teacher). I'll gather appropriate contact information and post it here when I've got it. I'm sure if a class got together up there, George would do it in a heartbeat--unlike PAT, it can be sponsored and held in a home, keeping overhead expenses down.
