People often ask me..."How do you have time to go on a retreat?" or say "I wish I could go on a retreat but I just can't get away or I can't afford to go". I used to think the same thing until my first retreat 10 years ago.
After my first retreat, I became clear about my Career and Spiritual Path. My family appreciated me more. I came back refreshed, renewed and ready to take on the world. This time away, allowed me to take a step back and review my life. See what was working and see what I needed to change. Every time I returned from a retreat, life took off for me. In 2007 after Sherry and I went on our first retreat together, we came back and decided to start advertising for our readings. After the following retreat, we started our website and company AwakeNDream. I can keep going but the point is that going on retreat gave me the insight, the push and the courage to accelerate my growth in all areas of my life.
I remember thinking it was too expensive to go anywhere, but then I started noticing something. I was spending money for my kids to do gymnastics, soccer, dance, plays, summer camps, etc... which were really important at the time. BUT, how is it that I can spend money on them for their development and growth but I was leaving myself out of it. So when I think of MY Retreats as spiritual classes, developmental activities or life changing courses, I am able to shift my lack mentality. I can remember that I am worth it too. That I deserve a little "ME" time. That once I come back from retreat life will look sweeter and if it didn't, I had tools to help me change it.
