Whew! Today was a full day. I’m glad I got my walk in early and did my meditation before we left for church. After church we had just enough time to grab lunch before heading out to the IANDS meeting. My friend Penny was presenting, so I had to go since I had never met her face-to-face and she is the one who told me about the Cincinnati IANDS meeting in the first place.
Penny was awesome. I knew she is a great soul and a great writer, but I had no idea she was such a force in person. She spoke, off the cuff for about an hour and half, about her life journey, her medical condition that has caused her to be in a coma 18 times and have 3 NDEs and about what she has learned from that. She had the room spellbound and laughing hysterically the entire time. She had notes, but she didn’t use them. Hopefully, she’ll be presenting more in the future. The room was as full as I’ve ever seen it. I think it was a full as it’s ever been. There were people from a couple of hours away in a couple of directions from Cincinnati. After the meeting about 20 of us went out to lunch/dinner where we fellowshipped for another hour and a half. It’s great to be in a room with like minded people where you can talk about the true nature of reality and who we are without having to worry about people looking at you like you’re crazy. About half of the people there have first hand experience with “the other side”. So, it’s not a belief for them, it’s a knowing.
We left from lunch/dinner to head to our Helping Parents Heal meeting. Only one person showed up. She was also at the IANDS meeting (I had invited her).Tywana and sat and talked with her for about an hour. Then, we decided to call it a night. We’ll redouble our “marketing” efforts for Helping Parents Heal reaching out to a few new places and doubling back on the ones we have reached out to before. I have to keep in mind it’s not about the numbers. If we can help even one person, that’s good. I had a woman email me right after the last meeting saying she would be there, but she didn’t show up. That means it was not meant to be. So, we go on.
