Pagan pride was absolutely amazing. We had a better time getting there and back. Classes were fantastic. They really focused on the material and really was a good “meat and potatoes ” type classes. So much information and learning. The two that stood out to me where shamanic breath work and pagans in politics. The shamanic breath work was amazing and each one of us got to experience a vison which was amazing because i really learned how to go into a vision when previously I never thought I could. Also I never could have paid attention long enough to go into that but for the first time in a long time I was. We shared out visions with our team and discussed what they could mean. I’m still not sure I know what mine means but I’m sure I’ll find out. To put it very shortly I was running through the woods and came to the base of a waterfall and I looked up and there was a huge deer with a pretty big rack. I focused on the deer for a hot minute and when I turned around something attacked me leaving my left arm bleeding but some animal ( who I can’t identify) healed me . Then I left the waterfall and ran back into the woods. I came out of the woods and left with a sense of understanding and knowing that, that is what needed to happen. Pagans in politics was good. I got to hear what it was like to be in politics and be pagan. I learned a lot about politics and how it is viewed from a politician stand point and got an inside look on how a pagan politician does things. There is quite a bit more that I learned but this weekend has been 100mph and I’m still kinda processing it all. But we all had a blast and all of us are filled with spiritual fullness and love and light !
Walk out of darkness! This year was the first year that my whole family walked. It was awesome to see friends from last year that I made and families from last year come back this year. The talks were deep and Amazing! There was a Greenville teacher who spoke to us about loosing his son to suicide and how much that affected him. The best part? He pointed to a huge group of students who were there to support him! They were all in tears. It was great to see support! He spoke about us all being family and being brought together by tragedy and how none of us asked to be in this family but we were here now and he’s so sorry we were in the walk family but he was happy we were there and he stood with us all ! Then there was another speaker who is a 911 dispatcher and she told us of her struggles of suicide and how she fights everyday to get better and how much her wife has helped her in her healing path. She reminded everyone that no matter the struggles that you are loved and you are valuable. The walk was amazing because the scenery was beautiful ( and only 2 minutes from my work. This might be a regular thing lol). The line of people was very very long and the hearts of people were very very big! This year was a little different in some aspects. We all had a good time and were filled with love and support! We left the walk with a sense of love and support not only for each other but for other families going through this as well!
