Marie Mulcahy shares her experiences of the development circle so far:
I am at the six week point on my new journey and that is exactly what it is. I have meditated in the past but what I am experiencing is a new way of being that extends way beyond my spiritual practise.
I have seen how my life and work in particular are flowing despite a huge amount of challenges. I feel so grounded and in control. In class I felt my body expanding and immense heat around head. I had to correct my posture twice during the meditation.
I totally understand the need for this process to allow us to open up to the work spirit has in mind for us. It’s about being able to detach ourselves so that we are just the channel. How can you work as healer or medium if you allow yourself to be run by your ego?
I understand in the early weeks why some railed against the process and couldn’t understand why it had to be done. As I near the end of the first eight weeks I totally understand.
It is all about faith and belief and handing over control to what is outside us and in our society this is a very scary thing to do but for one hour a week, the lucky few are able to do this and we are reaping huge rewards. I can’t thank Gordon and Steve enough for allowing us to undertake this journey and for the LSM for providing the safe space for this to take place.
