Unless you’ve been under a rock, you’ve probably already heard about True Self, True Biz, my Sedona retreat I hosted last week – Just kidding, but I have been talking about it quite a bit in the past few weeks 🙂
I am back home now, and after a few days of rest, am ready to share my own awakenings from the event with you.
But before then, I have to say that it was pretty magical what happened there at Sedona Mago Retreat.
It was such a thrill to welcome them there from Europe, Canada, and across the United States. 11 Countries in total were represented there, but yet it felt like we were all from the same family.
So much happened in Sedona that can’t possibly be contained in a blog post. All in all, we cried together, laughed together, ate together, danced together, opened up for each other and found support in each other for our growth.
Sounds pretty amazing, doesn’t it?
Though all cited above was pretty awesome, the most important part in my eyes was that they headed home ready to shine their brightest selves into the world.
So many layers were shed in Sedona to find forgiveness, courage, hope, creativity, joy, clarity for the future, brightness that they never imagined before.
I mean just to give 2 examples:
– One of the participants who had been doing Facebook lives and giving value for free forever, but wasn’t clear on how to charge for her services wrote an entire course on the plane home. And she’s so excited to finally get paid for her services.
– Another example that moves me deeply is how most are sharing energy exercises in their own unique ways with their families and friends and the great feedback they are getting from them.
To see that their experience tapping into energy has moved them so much that they are sharing with others, I feel like my dream is becoming reality.

Anyways, enough bragging Dihessa! lol
What I really wanted to share with you in this blog post was my own awakenings planning and running this retreat. But before then, let me share some of the fun times we had together dancing in this video 🙂
I had so many different awakenings in Sedona, but I will share the 3 most important ones with you here:
1. Everything that I have experienced in my life was so that I can be exactly here!
The subject of segmenting oneself into different compartments came up a lot during the retreat and I had to look back at my own life.
I remember that there was a time where I thought to myself that if I wanted to be taken “seriously” in business, there were certain things I had to not mix.
I remember being told as a corporate America employee that perhaps wearing braids in my hair wasn’t such a good idea because it didn’t “fit” the culture.
And better yet, I remember hearing from well meaning friends that I better keep spirituality and my business separate, because they don’t mingle well.
Man, am I glad I stopped listening.
As I watched the event unravel in Sedona, it became so clear to me that all my experiences in my life have brought me here.
My experience being a Zumba instructor helps me move the room with dancing.
My experience in corporate America prepared me for all the left brain work, analyzing, Facebook ads, website editing and much more…
All that combined with my experience with energy healing brought me exactly where I am today.
It feels so freaking awesome to bring the wholeness of who I am in my work and not fragments of myself.
I have the feeling this awareness alone is about to speed up my business growth in a big way!
We don’t have to put ourselves in any box,
We can do anything the way we choose to.
The choice is ours!
2. Why unifying intuition with practicality is essential for creation.
This isn’t really a new awakening, but it was just such a big reminder!
Without getting into too many details, it became very evident at some point of the training how many of us use either just the analytical part of our brain, or get lost in our mind and imagination in particular situations.
It’s funny, I’ve been in both situations myself. There were times in my previous business when it was all about efforting and numbers: that didn’t feel good and was quite difficult and unpleasant.
Then there were other times when I was all about energy, all imagination, but with no action and no purpose and of course, that didn’t work well either.
But when we use intuition for a purpose, when we can tap into our energy for a purpose, then we can create miraculous things.
3. I am STRONG! Yes, I am STRONG! and so are you! STRONGER than you think!
Before I started my own journey of awakening, I used to think of myself as weak.
After all, I had inherited this genetic thing called sickle cell, and had embraced and owned the fact that it had a deep effect in weakening my body, and there was nothing I could do about it.
I started to change that perspective as I kept training myself, but as I watched this group of amazingly strong souls in Sedona, it hit me HARD!
There is no way I would have attracted them in my life if I was as weak as I had originally thought. NO WAY!
And this was just confirmation once more that the more I facilitate others healing themselves, the more I heal myself.
Now before I end this blog post, I must share with you what the participants did that chocked me and moved me to tears.
I will let you watch instead in the video below – Raw, unedited.
Could you feel the love pouring?
P.S. I am now a stone person. lol , not just a stone person, this particular emathist. I placed it right next to my bed, it’s one of the first things I see in the morning when I open my eyes. It’s a great reminder of all the love I received in Sedona.
