I decided to take my journey notes here rather than in my notebook. The theme of love is wonderful. The story I shared of the mantra I have been practicing has been one of embracing and loving my work, my wonderful colleagues, and my customers....for teaching me patience, resilience, collaboration, trust, and receiving the help of others in the face of challenges. Recently, and particularly last night, I have been having horrible dreams...of chaos, of not being able to find my way, of carrying large heavy bags that I can hardly lift and my legs are weak...they can't hold me up or lift me up stairs. My arms cannot lift anything. I am stuck and trapped and the only way is if I drop something to grab someone's hand. I am not very good at that. So, on the call I was vividly remembering my challenge with our journey sessions in 2019 in Clifden, Ireland...at the very end of my Adult Gap Year of travel...a challenging time for me...I was excited to go home and yet sad for the end of my trip. I felt like a failure in the journey process. I was the novice, the newbie. Jerry could do it. Cindy could do it. But I could not. After a year of travel and growing and getting stronger...and hiking up mountains by myself, I thought I could too. I was very hard on myself that day in the bog. I wanted to cry. I left the group and went to a large rock to sit and gaze at the horizon...and feel sorry for myself. Cindy had known me for years by then, unlike Jerry and Michelle, so she sought me out and asked me to join the group. She reminded me it was my journey and could feel like whatever I wanted it to. She gave me love and freedom. I had to lower my guard to receive it. Back at the Coast Guard House the next day...after Jerry and I had take a day off to take a beautiful drive, walk the beach, and just be, Michelle took me on my own private journey...guiding me the whole way. And after receiving her help. I had a really enlightened experience. My way. I had to be able to receive love. Given the fact that the day at the bog and receiving Cindy's and Michelle's help that day was just filling me up on the call today, when Michelle asked us to grab something...I grabbed my SoulLove stone with the birds...a beloved gift from someone from whom love was easy to receive. I breathed deeply back into that bog, also channeling the card of 8 wands which I could see in my mind. I could smell the deep grass, I lay next to the hard rock, I heard the sounds of the bog water nearby, I could feel the mountain before me in my mind. And I thought: *I am the deep smell of the bog...connected deeply to the history of this land that has lived and died before me. *I am the hard rock...steady and impenetrable for myself and my friends, colleagues and family...and for myself. *I am the grass...that grows, dies, nourishes, lives on and on. *I am the water, the well of life. *I am the strength of that mountain before me that I have climbed, and can climb again. The strength and power of my muscles and heart and soul are within me. *Check the evidence! I have done this before, I can do it again. Stop beating myself up. In the journey I could feel this. My lower back immediately stopped hurting. My heart beat stronger. My head and my heart grew lighter. I acknowledged and accepted myself with love and gratitude. With love and gratitude. With love and gratitude. "Mission Joy!"

Hello everyone...what a wonderful and energy-filled call today. Such a delight for me to participate always with my sister Anne on the phone and one of my best friends, Patti! We made it back to her house on the way back from a baby shower just in time for the call, which we took in separate rooms....allowing us to experience it personally and then debrief afterwards. Michelle, you asked for photos of what we consider reminders of our ancestors. I invite you all to go to this story I wrote on my blog on April 12. (click link below) Mystique of The Midlands (carriebrasie.com) It was a story that was rattling around in my head for awhile and I could not frame it up...and it was about that time when, Michelle, I think we did a journey on your Tuesday night Clubhouse. In that journey I was flying over the West Coast of Ireland near Clifden, the rocky shores, heading back to my points of travel in 2018/2019. So I wrote the story with the imagination of my ancestors who would have emigrated to the Americas in the opposite direction. with hope, courage, exploration, adventure, and an open heart for learning new things. (and maybe some indentured servents?) At the bottom of the story I end up in The Midlands...where, not only my Ancestry.com roots show as existing, but where my Uncle has dug up specific people that are matched to our tree. But my experience with my "new friends" and my arrival at the B&B hotel and stay in Yorkshire were the basis of "heart center" in today's journey...I imagined myself sitting with that Cocker Spaniel and those three horses...who simple ambled up to me when we stopped there for a rest, as though they were greeting an old friend at the time of the photo. Your statement that we should find rather than seek really resonated with me. The primary message I got today was that when I keep my heart open, when I learn and try new things without hesitation, when I trust myself and my intuition, and when I explore without fear...things just come to me. That was the experience I had that day in Yorkshire. And at the time, I felt like I was returning home. Today's journey reminded me of this time and the story that I wrote back on April 12th even before you introduced this topic. Thank you! PS...on another interesting ancestral note, Anne and I are decendents of John Howland, who was a passenger on the Mayflower, which departed to the Americas from Plymouth, Cornwall, England in 1620. He fell off the boat in a storm and miraculously was able to grab roping and climb back on. He went on to have 10 children with his wife and has over 2 million decendents. And, ironically, I live in Plymouth, MI now. He is not my guide, but it's an interesting anecdote. Cheers!
