I had this experience recently, and it felt so incredibly good and natural, that I wanted to hold on to that feeling really badly. That’s what we naturally do as humans, right? When something feels good, we try to hold on to it (because what if we would lose it again..?).
But over the years, I have learned to just enjoy these moments in all intensity, and not to mess with the flow of a possible higher purpose. My spiritual mentor Dr. Wayne Dyer, used to say: “Be open to anything and attached to nothing”, and that’s exactly what I have been practising for quite some years now, and it feels very exciting and so liberating.
The universe doesn’t know any limitations, so why would we try to hold on to a good experience then? There’s so much more available to us. We would only limit ourselves from other future experiences.
When we live our life consciously – we might even have a dream or a goal – and it’s something that’s in our awareness most of the time, we feel amazing when we can focus on this. It gives us energy and it becomes so purposeful to us. I think that this is what happened with me here.
Hungry to connect with the heart
I’m just back from a short but intense trip to Bogotá, Colombia, hosted by a woman I met during last year’s retreat in Costa Rica. She was really inspired by how I helped people make a deeper connection with the heart, and the science that explains this concept and experience.
After the retreat, she had asked me if I was willing to lead a retreat in her hometown, Bogotá. Before we knew, we had developed the perfect plan together. Thank you Sylvia, for fully trusting me to pull this off, and for your endless dedication.
The power of healing
Despite the difference in language, culture and experiences, the participants made me instantly feel I was one of them, without hesitation. The deep learning and sharing, the warm South American hugs (and kisses), the release of deeply rooted emotions, and the fearless embracing of the, often unusual, experiences that I offered them, were all the foundation for a powerful healing process.
– On a side note, to all my female friends here in Canada that I hugged in the last 2 weeks: That extra kiss you received from me, was because my mind and heart were still in Colombia, and it wasn’t meant to embarrass you. –
With a warm and full heart, I travelled back to Canada. The next day, I received an invitation to come back to Colombia this year. I realized that the hungriness wasn’t over yet, and my detachment was apparently approved by the universe (with a wink). It felt like the universe was whispering in my ear: “Keep coming from your heart, don’t get attached to anything, and stay humble in the process.”
“We’re all just walking each other home.” – Ram Dass
I want to sincerely thank all of my friends and new family, who so much believe in the mission that I’m on. Thanks to you, I am able to do what I currently do. It feels amazing to have your support and to have you on my side.
This feeling has now become a memory, and I know I can access it whenever I choose to. Communication with my family has improved, but also in interpersonal relationships in general. I am communicating from another place, more connected to my heart – It’s a wonderful gift! I know I have to keep practicing the heart coherence so that it becomes my natural way of being and acting. A close hug from the heart to you! LILIAN GALVIS
Far from a physical experience, this was a mystical one. We found a bridge that led us to new sacred and deep dimensions, those that unite with divinity and co-creation.
Starting with conscious and slow breathing, we are able to reach that lost paradise in the labyrinth of ego and fear.
Dirk handed us a marvelous and simple tool – the tool that allows us at any time of the day, to consciously choose the space for love, that can let us experience an abundant and balanced life, in which coherence prevails, where you ultimately become ‘One with the Universe’. DALIA EDERY
