After moving from the west coast of Florida to the east coast, I’d thought I was going to miss participating and joining with many of the groups I’d become so engaged with!
Thus, I was so excited when Alania Starhawk offered a webinar type of online 4-week class. I jumped at the opportunity to participate!
I love learning via tele-call series and online programs, and Alania’s class was aWEsOMe! I was always so eager to connect each Tuesday evening at 7pm–a perfect time for me!
I really enjoyed the Webinar Ninja online platform and that there was plenty of space to make notes in the chat window, while learning in this way.
As you see, I was able to take screen captures of the slides that Alania presented to include the chat text I shared, (using my iPhone), to save for my future reference. As well, each call was recorded and Alania shared the link with each of the attendees via email, so we can listen to the calls again and again.
When I began the course, I’d been finishing up a book, which I’d been working on (off and on) for 13 years. I had desired to complete it a couple of years ago, but that didn’t happen. Awhile later, I’d wanted to finish it last year, and then I started a new job and three days later, my mother passed.
By December of 2017, I’d decided I would set a date to wrap up the book (no matter how “complete” I thought it was), by May 2018–before going to New Hampshire for the month. Yet, the book languished on the computer with many notes on my iPhone for it, that I needed to verify via books and online sources.
When I signed up for Creative Alchemy I had an idea that I would use whatever energy I felt from the class, and whatever enthusiasm it sparked, I’d direct it toward finishing the book.
I’m ecstatic to tell you all, that yes, it worked! I completed the manuscript of the book on 8/6/2018, right before the Lion’s Gate date of 8/8! And I didn’t even know what the Lion’s Gate was!
Thus, the following are what I learned from Alania’s Creative Alchemy course:
- I became energized about my own personal power
- I was lovingly reminded that we are ALL supported
- As I scrutinized my book, I felt a very tangible PUSH to stay focused
- I opened more in an extraordinary way to get the book to the finish line
Alania’s class gave me a nudging boost, or gentle push, yet all of this happened with ease–to get my book done. I know it sounds odd to say that, and may be hard to imagine, but it’s true. Several things just sort of moved out of the way, yet nothing was ignored–and like a kaleidoscope that creates a gorgeous design by allowing all of the bits to easily fall into place–all of the edits that I’d had noted to make and all of the citations were checked by the last day of our class.
I finally felt a sense of balance about having written a book of over 200 pages about one’s personal responsibility and options within the realm of holistic health and wellness.
The manuscript is in layout phase now, and I will write another article and press release when that part of the process is complete. So, stay tuned!
About Alania Starhawk
Alania is one of the most genuine, brilliant, and bright shining hearts I know! I trust her implicitly.
I realize that in the world of spiritual teachers, mentors, way showers, channelers, and so forth, some people have skeptical thoughts. I can assure you of Alania’s integrity.
I’ve written previously that I meditate to expand my energy and reach. I see myself as a voice and influence, connecting to my coworkers, friends, neighbors, local community, state, region, country, continent, and world. WE ARE ALL CONNECTED. And I always want to honor this knowing.
If we’re in better shape emotionally, mentally, and physically, we can change the world! And why is that important? Because We Are All Connected!
