I recently returned from a beautiful trip in Florida, my second trip of the month after flying to Ohio for a few days for a spiritual retreat. I absolutely loved Florida, each and every second of my time there. I had the pleasure of visiting Florida with my boyfriend, Michael. He had scheduled time off, and this would be our longest time spent together in a row. We got to “play house” for some time, and it was so much fun. On our first full day in Florida, we attended the in5d Psychic Conference, an event I was thrilled to attend. It was a bit too “woo-woo” and boring for Michael, but I was infinitely grateful that he was able to attend with me as I relished in the experience. Pamela Aaralyn was one of the scheduled high-vibrational speakers at the event, and I was thrilled to meet her in person as well as other soul family from her tribe. Pamela is a great teacher of mine and now a great friend.
My first two full days in Florida were all about soul shifting and lessons for me in great, meaningful ways. Looking back, I could summarize what I learned and shifted into in two impactful ways. Number one: I am here for a great reason, and I am a beacon of light. I cannot tell you how many compliments I received in reference to my light and to my wisdom. It made me feel so amazing because I realized it to be true in those moments and now moving forward. I knew I had to (and wanted to!) carry this feeling into my being from henceforth onward. Going into the trip, I knew I wanted to make a difference in this world, but I see now how I was holding myself back from my own divinity and Source aspect. I did not know if I believed I could accomplish what I set out to do. Could I financially support myself through my own business? Did I make a mistake by dropping out of the dietetic internship? Am I on the right track? These were all questions I would find answers to in Florida.
On our second full day, Michael and I attended a small boat cruise with Pamela and friends. The entire day I was on some sort of high. I was feeling more myself, surrounded by these beautiful souls and in the arms of my beloved. Pamela would be giving us all a private session on the boat, and one of the main topics I wanted to bring light to was my soul purpose and mission. Pamela asked me about my current endeavors. I told her about my life and nutrition coaching business as well as my oracle card readings. She said it was going to blow up, and that instantly made me feel good. In regards to not becoming a dietitian, she said that would have been too rigid for me, too much of a paradigm. I am here to break the molds. I told her about my guilt for wanting to work only for myself. I want to be my own boss and fully support myself financially through this business I am growing. Was this possible? Could I really do what I have in mind? She told me an emphatic “yes!” I do not need to work for anyone other than myself. Now, it is not so important what she said, but it is the fact that I aligned with her messages and believed this all to be truth in these moments. I just have to keep going, keep flowing. Surrender to the universe and all its infinite wisdom. Realize that I am brighter than I can even imagine, and the universe is supporting my every move.
At this point, I asked Pamela if I could bring over Michael for her to do a combined reading. During this part of our session, we somehow streamed back to my life purpose. She said how I am holding myself back.
“Before when I asked you about what you were doing, you were like ‘I do some tarot… I help people…’ But I was seeing you speaking to thousands.”
Michael chimed in, “Yeah, I can see her on TV.”
“Exactly,” Pamela said. “Dream bigger,” she told me.
It was the message of the moment. The future is infinitely fluid and not set in stone. There are many future possibilities that we can align with. According to Teal Swan, there are two reasons why we would align to receive a psychic reading of our future – either to warn us of a possible future we need to shift away from OR to prepare us for the future that awaits. I am guessing (well, I know) for me the reason is the latter. My Higher Self is pushing me towards a future of greatness. I was holding myself in too small, not realizing my true potential, and it is time to shine brighter and brighter. It is time for me to dream bigger and to believe in myself and my dreams. Those are words worth repeating.
Even now as I allow myself to float back to precious moments in Florida, I feel myself vibrating faster and faster. I think back to countless moments with so many beautiful women that brought out my true, beautiful, and divine nature. They saw greatness in me, and I believed them. To each and every beautiful soul I interacted with in Florida, I thank you. EVERY interaction was beautiful and made me feel so bright. I am grateful beyond compare. I wish I could accurately express just how much each and every one of you mean to me and how life changing those days in Florida were with all of you, because of all of you. Alas, I cannot because words cannot do justice just how life changing and shifting those days were for me and my future. Because of all of you, I am starting to see myself as you do. I am beginning to stand in my truth and my power. I am expanding. I thank you, and I love you.
After the boat trip, Michael and I spent some time by the ocean on Siesta Key beach. We would be meeting back up with everyone for the beach drum circle. It was a night of a full moon which made it all the more special. As we walked barefoot to the circle, we were instantly overcome by the sacred energy and the beautiful beats. We walked around the circle looking for our friends. Of course, they were right smack in the middle, dancing their beautiful hearts out. “Samantha is here! Samantha is here!” Pamela said. Michael and I started dancing, and I felt a rush of energy overcome my being. I was so grateful, and I knew what it felt like to be alive. What a beautiful and momentous way to end my time with my soul family. I never said goodbye to anyone. We all seemed to drift away, but I know that was for a reason. After all, we never truly say goodbye at all in this vast universe. My new friends and I traveled from all over the US to be together for these sacred forty-eight hours. We were all supposed to be there and come together for a short but powerful time. It was like the universe was saying a collective “until you meet again.”
I earlier mentioned how there was another primary lesson that I gained from my trip. This is my renewed and expanded love for Michael. I could not believe how much support and reassurance I received regarding my own abilities. Similarly, I was so taken back by everyone’s comments regarding the connection Michael and I share. “You two are love birds,” Denise said on the day of the conference. I could not help but to smile. On the boat trip, I was the only one with a significant other tagging along. Michelle said she could see the energy of an infinity sign crossing our beings, and as Becky watched our interactions, she suggested I should write relationship advice for others. I love to write, and I knew that at the least I should start writing and being more open about our connection with each other - a tale of the atheist meets the spirit and the beautiful love that has been created. Pamela was also spot on in our reading of us as well.
“Usually,” she said, “I have some relationship advice to give to couples, but I have nothing to say. You two are doing so well.”
Heading into the trip, I knew it would be almost a test for our relationship. How would we handle being together 24/7 for over a week, especially since we both want to move in together? Well, I am happy to report it went splendid. We did not fight, not even once. Well, I did get annoyed when he woke me up when I was napping on the beach! But, otherwise, I could not have asked for a more genuinely happy and blissful experience with my love, and I really thank those first two spiritual days for this occurrence. Seeing what everyone else saw in us allowed for me to see it more deeply myself. I am so genuinely happy and in love. I love him to my core. It was like a rush of loving energy enveloped me in those two days, causing me to expand, and merging our energy fields more deeply. I am so in love.
