‘When you’re in a state of awe, you’re in a persistent state of gratitude’. Wayne Dyer
We are in AWE of the year we have had. Seriously if someone told us what 2017 held for us last December we would have never believed them (maybe even ran away in fear)!
We are truly thankful for all we have at this present moment & what has happened to us in our biggest year yet. Our community has grown beyond belief & the holistic education movement has become real. Each & every person who attends, supports & reaches out to us, shows they believe in new thought education & that empowers us to pioneer this way of thinking. We believe in doing that our own way, a new way, I don’t even think we fully know what that means yet.. It’s intuitively driven & we too learn as we go.. Awe also means that we can’t forget to have gratitude for the challenges that pushed us to change what we ‘thought’ was the way & accept they were in fact blessings in disguise. There were times we could have just walked away & back into a classroom teaching job with a set salary. Instead we chose to listen to the whispers of the universe & trust the process. We chose to show up, even when it was really hard. We grew tired & delirious some days. But if we didn’t show up we would have never had the elation of moments like driving home from being on the live news in Brisbane, getting calls from the entire family & actually laughing so hard at ourselves -- replaying how the nerves nearly took over to the point of not being able to do it & how did our idea just become so real?... Or the moment we found out we officially had the house we manifested, we were like ‘here we go again’….!! So many funny memories that went on behind the scenes mostly to the theme of 70s ‘You Make My Dreams’ By Hall & Oates or some other gem on Spotify that summed up the mood. Not to mention the special moments we witnessed with the children – the gratitude circles, endless creative energy, the love they showed us & the time they came inside & began ‘tapping, asking each other if they ‘felt calm yet?’… We sat back & watched, while they proceeded to spread out, then lay down to ‘meditate’…. More awe. These beautiful beings have learnt so much, the practices are deep-rooted & this leaves our hearts filled with boundless love.
So we are reflecting with gratitude, taking some time to slow down, disconnect & reignite our creative energy for the new year. We will be offline until mid Jan & will have lots to share with you then. May you all have safe, loving, beautiful, blessed, awe-filled holidays. We truly LOVE you all x
