It has been 5 days! and it is only now that I am able to settle from the emotional high and hysterics of such a spiritual encounter. I had no expectations of what would take place, and even being there --in the arena-- up until the security guards (strongly) encouraged me to leave :) I still cannot articulate what took place; especially, when purpose was involved...a spiritual traction that appointed the expulsion of my heart's desire with the coordinates of destiny.
You must know, honestly, what led me to being apart of Oprah's dream for herself (and for others) at the first stop for her: Live the Life You Want tour. It all started back in March 2014 when pre-sale tickets went on sale. I scoured websites, looking for prices...I knew it wouldn't be cheap; however, I had no idea how expensive they would be! Yikes!!! (I thank The Divine that Heaven is Free. Lol.) I learned quite a bit about mind-setting, manifest creation (more commonly referred to as: The Law of Attraction) and designing "miracles". So, I set in my heart the want and desire to be apart of this momentous occasion by ANY MEANS NECESSARY...ANY!!! I thought and meditated on this very thing for a very long time...from March until July. In August, an events company was hiring for grounds crew for LLYW, and I thought: Perfect! This is my chance to get to be apart of the experience! A way to "sneak" into the action, I guess. Until I found out that grounds crew were going to be outside at the O-so-fun O-town (an Oprah experience set up in Centennial Park, and it was a blast indeed!). Then, I thought, I guess this will do, even though this is not what I asked for [in my Divine Moments of prayer]. TWO DAYS before I was set to work, and watch thousands of women have the moment of their lives...an industry friend of mine (and an adored radio personality), texted me to tell me she had a +1, and thought I would love to go.... if I wanted!?! Uh...don't ever ask...just tell me where I need to be! And well, I didn't want to hurt her feelings (wink-wink) so I shyly obliged, but on the inside screamed like I won the 2 billion dollar lottery, and in a way.....I had!
On night one of the two day encounter, Oprah -the storyteller- was beautiful. And although I tried....darn it! I couldn't resist crying. For me, it was watching the culmination of an incomplete journey and masterful legacy of the woman I would watch every day after school (grade, middle, high and college) at 4pm, and she became real to me, and real for me! The respect I have for Ms. Winfrey has always been on the level of an executive...and then, as a woman who overcame her traumatic past life. The one thing I will never forget is Oprah saying (and this is true for me because this statement was an EXACT verbatim prayer I had prayed to my god, for myself): "You may think that your life is over, but all of you can be exhausted. All of you can be used: ON PURPOSE!" When she said that, as I have always said to my ever-growing audience, I knew then, it was designed for me to see the possibility of my future self. And this became a holy moment; an outer body experience and celestial encounter; seeing Oprah on that stage was like seeing me at the exchange of tremendous work ethic.
Day 2, brought about something new for me; speakers (and respective industry specialists), Pastor Rob Bell, author of Eat. Pray. Love., Elizabeth Gilbert, Minister & Soul Healer Iyanla Vanzant and the illustrious Deepak Chopra. I have a myriad of notes, of which I could literally write for you the transcript. Yet, the overall, and underlying thought and belief system that I WAS ABLE to extract for MYSELF is that yes, you in this right now, at this right place for this right moment of confirmation; YOU, were given what you dream, and even with the seemingly nothingness you have, use that to create what you see in your mind, and make that the belief of your heart and from there a passion will resurrect so bright, that that will be the illumination upon your feet to light your path. And I felt an EXPLOSIVE OVERWHELMING sense of gratitude; graciousness that without the money or (financial) means to be in that place, provision was created, PROVIDED for me...to connect with those of whom are next level thinkers, higher dimensional achievers & believers! I WAS THERE to GET MY LIFE. AND TO KNOW I AM ON THE RIGHT PATH AND JOURNEY to Live the Life I Want....which is to enable humanity to dare to believe there is purpose and intention behind their existence. Between the networking, a sunny Georgia day and the cusp of liberty; GOD ordained this unspeakable treasure, Oprah, and her experience, is the insight, and now I AM FREE to LIVE THE LIFE I WANT!
(I cannot wait to see where this journey leads me now. Kind of like, expectation.) What is the "Life You Want?"
