Afterwards: We had a wonderful 24 hour retreat. There was much to share, much to discuss, much to learn and much to eat. Thank you to everyone who joined in.
(Due to a booking mistake, we’re changing the event time to begin Sunday, August 26th at noon (including lunch) and ending at Monday, August 27th at noon (not including lunch).
We are experiencing a time where people of the world seemingly are all but “going crazy”. This is not completely what is happening. Rather, what we see are some of the issues and problems which have been buried – present during all this time, and are now coming to the surface to be addressed and healed. Each of us can attest to some of it happening within ourselves and in our own lives.
The energy of the times, however, is helping to make this happen. This is not “destructive” energy with evil intent, but rather a higher moving energy which permeates through all phases of physical life – bringing change which appears destructive to the old paradigms, old behaviors and lower levels of consciousness vibration. We are both helping to facilitate this evolutionary energy into place while in the Earth, as well as being on the receiving end of more energy which comes in from higher levels with the purpose of matching and supporting us in this evolutionary process.
With these times upon us, it helps to connect in ever clearer ways with our Higher Source – to gain guidance from this Source to navigate these rough waters. A connection to our Higher Spiritual Guidance can help us to gain from the One Infinite Consciousness which has our well-being in the present and our evolution into the future, in mind.
The purpose and hope of this 24-hour retreat is to explore the different methods of Divination, which can help us to connect to the Energy Field of the Infinite Consciousness of God. These “languages of God” or communication and interpretation tools for potentially that which is greater than ourselves, help us to connect to, relate to and understand our Spiritual Guidance, Higher Guidance and Inner Guidance – not just to circumnavigate these times, but for our lives in general.
We will discuss the different methods – dreams, Tarot, Runes, I-Ching, Dowsing, Water-witching, and others. We will cover the principles and workings of the divination methods for greater understanding, share our own personal experiences and insights to learn from each other, and explore how each can eventually serve to help us develop our intuition and psychic faculties. We will also integrate making the Higher Self connection, with regards to doing these methods for ensuring the highest and best, be what we connect to and facilitate our better practices.
Divination methods are tools to help us to develop and understand greater guidance which is happening and thus available all the time. For example: where the idea of waking up one day and going from 0% psychic to being 100% psychic could be compared to leaping a tall building in a single bound, divination methods can be compared to taking the stairs or elevator to get to the top of the tall building – real spiritual guidance tools for real humans dealing with real life – and which helps us to develop an everyday familiarity with our own connection to the flow of Spiritual Guidance. As with all tools, the effort and intent towards greater Spiritual Unity within the heart and mind of the individual determines whether any tool gets used helpfully or harmfully.
We will also include meditation times and explore how meditation and prayer serve as foundations for learning the language of Spirit. Attendees are welcome to bring their own divination method or tools to the retreat.
