Veda MeLA Event Update August 22, 2016
Something was not feeling right to me about Veda MeLA, but I didn’t know what it was.
So, I created the space for clarity: a week in healing waters.
Of course, the clarity came: to create the space in my life to slow down, and be more present.
I was moving so fast that I didn’t realize how much I was taking on. Everything was flowing so nicely, that I kept saying, ‘yes!’
I felt uncomfortable with being “behind.” I worried about letting people down and how my new partners at Wanderlust would feel about my bowing out.
You can imagine my delight when they started laughing, and telling me a dozen other factors that were all pointing in the same direction! They were pushing forward out of fear of letting me down! I share this story, as it affirms our teachings: when you are making choices from your highest vibration place, love of your life experience (ananda), it’s always best for everyone. We all felt relieved, heard and supported. We all shared and found a collaborative solution: postpone VM until next year.
We decided to keep our incredible speaker and keynote lineup, our amazing sponsors, and our featured TTs and charities, and give the whole program the support of one year of promotions. This allows us to show up so settled, and in ease, which will attract the experience we are looking for in mothering this event.
I feel so blessed to channel this work of art, Veda MeLA, and that I’ve been so well supported by you, and everyone involved.
I feel even more blessed to exemplify choosing wellness and repletion first.
Please mark your calendars for Saturday November 11, 2017. Yes, that’s 11-11-17, and it will be a powerful energetic gateway for us all.
