WHY WOMEN LOVE THE GODDESS SEMINAR

 


“As a working mother of three children, I am so focused on taking care of my family and my customers that I have neglected to take care of “me”. THE GODDESS SEMINAR allowed me to get in touch with an inner strength and peace I didn’t know I had, and connected me to a spiritual side of myself that was missing. My husband and children noticed such a significant change in me that they told me I should take the seminar once a year, and I agree!”

~ Patricia Irwin, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida


“Barbara truly performed miracles for me and my twenty-three year old daughter at THE GODDESS SEMINAR. We attended together, hoping to grow closer after a few rocky years. Not only did we recapture the bond we once had, but we connected with each other in a way neither of us expected. Now I can truly say my daughter is my best friend. Thank you Barbara!”

~ Elaine Rothenberg, Dallas, Texas


“I signed up for THE GODDESS SEMINAR soon after the end of a long relationship, hoping for some healing. I received that and so much more. Barbara created a truly sacred environment in which I discovered a love and respect for myself that I had lost, or maybe never even had. A few months later I met a man who appreciates me in a way I never knew was possible, and I don’t think would have been if I hadn’t found that same feeling inside of myself.”

~ Helena Whittaker, Los Angeles, California

On Thu, Dec 23 2010 we drove to a cozy cabin in Arnold CA. It was a beautiful day, the sun was up and the road was wonderful as always. We love to go up to Arnold, since it is still a small town, with few shops and a there is this cozy feeling in the air.

Few hours after arriving, our family/friends joined us. It was a big party for the kids, who were looking forward to spend time together, in the cabin and with some snow!

Dinner, kids playing, going to sleep J

Friday, December 24.

I woke up, feeling happy to be on vacation, completely forgetting it is my birthday! Very much like me, since I usually don’t make a big deal out of my birthday. We had a great breakfast and then Aviv, the kids and our friends went up to do some snow sledding! This is the whole point of snow – right ?

I stayed at the cabin, enjoying a few hours of quiet, no one asking for something, for me, for food J I decided to take a walk. It was beautiful and sunny. I looked at the trees, the houses around and felt very grateful to see all this beauty.

Went back to the house, put some tree branches together in an arrangement (can’t ignore me being a florist….) took a nice warm (and quiet) bath, until the neighbor next door decided to cut some wood 😉

Went out, fixed myself a cup of coffee and a small piece of orange-chocolate cake, took the computer and set down to write. It was a wonderful feeling to reflect about being 40. I really feel blessed to reach the wisdom age. As my youngest sister told me, the number 40 is a very important number in Judaism. She also told me that up to this age we are studding, preparing for becoming a teacher who can pass on wisdom. I felt very connected to this concept as I feel that today, more than ever; I am more aware and ready to make great changes inside out. For some people it may look odd, but I love the process of learning myself. It never stop amazes me how much more I have to learn J

Kids are back!  A problem in the car window brought them sooner than later. Well, my time is up.

Dinner, great food and then – Show time!

With a beautiful Flower shape cake, we sang Happy Birthday and sat down to watch what my wonderful family and friends have worked on.

I knew NOTHING, and was totally surprised by what I was about to see. I was amazed and touch to tears to learn that Aviv, the kids, Yotvat and Nitzan have been working on the ‘Relli Project’ for a month and a half, without me knowing anything!

As you all know, Aviv has been working off my computer, all the email addresses of my close friends and people who I know, and asked them to send me their BD wishes. I knew nothing!

I was honored, touched and felt very blessed to have such an amazing group of people around me!

The movie Aviv put together was wonderful! I had fun funny videos to watch, cards to read, songs to hear!

What really strikes me was the love I felt purring out this project! I felt loved, appreciated and very special. It was hard to realized that it is all for me. A part of my personal growth is to learn how to receive. I tend to be a good giver, but not such a good receiver. This event put me on the spot, and helped me see things in a different way. It was great!

So, here I am, crying, laughing, crying, amazed, laughing, crying etc to see so many people, some of which I haven’t been in touch in years, all wishing Happy Birthday.

After the movie, Yotvat prepared a series of questions about ‘Relli’s Life’. It was a kick because it forced the kids to take wild guesses about my life, and also reminded me of stories and events I didn’t remember. A lot of fun!!!!!

11:00 pm. Kids are tired, putting them to sleep. Stayed up late, talking.

I had a wonderful Birth DAY, with lots of love around me.

I want to thank each and every one of those who made this all possible. Aviv, my kids, Yotavt and her family, Nitzan and her family, my Mom and siblings , my mother in law and Aviv’s siblings and all the beautiful people who send me their love in a package of Birthday Wishes.

Lots of love, excited to be 40 J RelliThe Fun Begins!

You are probably wondering what this all about. Well, lately I have hard time sleeping through the night, and  find myself waking up very early. I decided that instead of fighting it and try for 2 hours to go to sleep, I will get up 🙂

yesterday, early morning when the house was quiet, I stumble across The FinerMinds Challenge – Give Us Your Personal Growth Story In 6 Words!

http://www.finerminds.com/personal-growth/six-word-memoirs/

I tought it was really cool to take it on and this is what I came out with –

Feel – For me, not feeling is a disease that I am constantly working to cure. I have been able to tap into my feelings in so many ways, but if I let go of the practice to feel, I build my walls again.  So, feel would be the first thing of change.

Then, let go – oh, my gosh! this is a hard one for me. I know the ‘theory’, I know what I need to do, but to feel ‘LET GO’ is a totally different story. Over the last 4 months, I have learned over and over again that when I let things go, everything shifts. Relationships, money, opportunities. I set the intention, I take actions ro move toward my intention and then, let go.

well, this  will be a constant challenge to keep this lesson going. But I am up for it :0)

Get into the flow – only when I let go, I can get into the flow. As long as I hold it tight, controlling my feelings, people, situations, I am not in flow. I always go back to nature – Water, Wind, Fire are all flowing. they will find a way to go around, above, underneath to get to their destination. They don’t try to control the direction, they flow.

So, to sum it up – feel, let go, get into flow is my personal growth in 6 words!

It would be nice to take this challenge every few months, and see what comes up. As we change, the lesson will change too.

Go, take 10 min and try it yourself 🙂

Love, Relli

You must have been wondering where I am… so here it is –

I have been busy with going back to Floral Design. I have been investing my heart, time and effort into creating great videos teaching people what I know. I am so excited about sharing it all with you very soon!

It has been a great time to learn patience, trust (especially the universe) that things will fall into place, and love.

Lot more to be done, tell you more soon,

All my love, Relli

 

In the last few days I have been resisting taking action towards putting videos together. I know I am resisting change, I can feel how I am holding back to my passion for art, afraid that if I take it on I will have to give up other things. As I am writing it,I know that the opposite will actually happen. If I dive into my art, share my love for it, teach people about it, my life would be filled with joy of giving and receiving. But still, I am holding back. Today, I had planned to complete the materials I need to have for my first videos, and I stopped. I could not pin point why, but I didn’t do it. I tried to find all kind of reasons why it is not a good time “I am tired”, I have to cook dinner, I won’t finish is today anyway, bla bla bla. I know I am making up excuses, pretty amazing that I can acknowledge it and still do it! Haha

Eventually, I decided to let go. I did not complete my list, neither my cooking 😉 , I just took my book and set down to read.

And, it was what I needed to do. Let go of controlling the day. It was what I needed to do – I got the answers why I am doing it from reading the book. I got to see, through Barbara’s Book, that she has done the same!

“a ship in a harbor is safe, but that’s not what ships are for”John A Shedd

I found this quote to catch my attention –  I am the ship, and I am stuck in the harbor! I am not supposed to stay there for ever, I am supposed to sail away to the open sea, let go of controlling and just drift with the waves.

I find it to be very challenging to take  huge leaps, to take huge steps. I am pretty good at taking big leaps when I am practicing (seminars, camps, in my community), but when it comes to my own destiny, I am holding back. Interesting.

As long as I am playing a game which is not really about me, I am leaping big time, but I stop when it comes to me, my life, my business, my relationships. I will do some work on it in the next few days, and will get to the bottom of it.

As for the next few days, I will take small leaps. I will take the key to the room where I can shoot videos, I will collect the materials to create few short videos, and just trust that things will fall into place.
“Show me the way, show me what I need to see to move forward”

Love, Relli

I am going through an emotional tsunami. I say that because a Tsumani is being generated in one place, usually very far from the place it hits. I feel that my emotions are a lot like the big wave. It starts in a very different time in my life. I first learned to block my feelings when I was  16. Until then, I had a very fun, normal, peaceful childhood, no major disasters or events I can tell you that changed my life. When I was 16,going on 17 my parents were separating, getting a divorce. It was not a pleasant process at all and as a young women, who had to grow up in 1 day. To survive,  I’ve created this amazing mechanism of survival. The simple but yet very effective  was to completely block the way to feeling. I mean, not to react in a different way, but really shut my heart to feelings. At that point, I didn’t want to feel all the pain, shame, fights and so much anger.  I shut down my feeling machine, my heart.

This system worked really well, well at least that what I thought over the years. I could hurt people without getting hurt back. I still remember telling myself and others that I have no expectation from anyone, because if I do, I will have disappointments. I liked to have this Anti-feeling shield, it serves me in a way of protecting myself from getting hurt.

Not having expectations is in a way say – don’t feel. If you don’t feel, you don’t get hurt. You see, to access the feeling machine, our heart, you need to go through the door of love. But, you might think there is one door for love, and another for anger, but it is (as I am learning ) the same one. There is only one door to my heart.

By blocking my door to all the anger, fights, sadness and chaos my parents divorce generated in my life, I also blocked the door to feel, the door to feel love.

Over the years, I took so many training and I was able to access this place of deep love, but as I went back to my day-to-day life, I was very quick to shut it back. I became an expert in putting so many locks on my heart, that it takes a  long time and the right keys to open it up again.

For me, keeping the feeling machine working at all time, takes a lot of HARD work. I need to pay really good attention to what is going on within me, and keep change the way I respond.

Here is an example that happend last night. As we were cooking dinner, I lost my temper. It was a stupid argument about cooking paste, but the results were devastating. I was screaming and yelling at my husband, and shaking from  my head to my toes. He told me to control myself and my reaction wsa to storm out of the house.

I went into my car and drove.

I didn’t know where I was going to, but I knew something big is cooking within me and I needed some quiet alone time to figure it out.

I want to pause for a second, and go back to the  Goddess seminar. At the seminar (See posting from July 29 and August 11) I realized that I am creating points of conflict to get the control I want to have. What I mean by control is – to get what I want, my way, no matter what the outcome is. I also get a lot of attention from being angry.

I had realized I have done it again, I have created a fight over basically nothing.

At the seminar, I created a Goddess Power Rules, which intend to remind me what I am doing, and what I need to change to access my feeling machine. I knew it, but I didn’t do it.

What my Power Rule says – Take 10 deep breath, take a walk and center. Come back, say what I want in a nice way, express how I feel with power, but not control.

Funny, I never thought I had a control issue (other do think that) .

For me control was a more of a physical concept, but it is actually comes in many forms. My control ‘style’ (if I can call it this way) is emotional. For example – I can be very angry with my kids for not cleaning up their room and make them clean it up for me to be satisfied. After they do it, I am satisfied, but I am also very angry and upset with myself for doing so.

So, the question I am asking myself is – how can  give up my control and find the way back to the love in my heart?

The answer is simple, but the process to make is a part of every minute of my day is hard work for me.

I am taking one step today, I took the time to process what had happened last night, connect the dots, realize what I have done and how can I change my action and reaction in the future. I know life will bring it’s own challenges 😉

Until next time, I will be working on my Feeling Machine.

With love, Relli

P.S. When I googled Images of ‘Love Machine’ it is mostly about sex! how strange..

Over this amazing weekend that I was at the seminar, I did not have a chance to write here.

It seems that we were at this room for 2 years, with all the things that came up to me and to other wonderful women. Barbara’s processes were so powerful, that you got something every time again.

It’s been 2 weeks since I am back from the seminar, and I am still digesting what has happened.

Here are some of the things I learned –

I am afraid to be in a group of all women. My first substantial memory related to a large women group is back 22 years ago. I was completing my officer training. I don’t remember all the details but I do remember that there was a lot of gossiping and cruellest to one another. It was not a good experience when it comes to how they treated one another. I remember hating it, I remember don’t understanding it. This is what my body feels when I am around many women. During the course of the Goddess Seminar I learn to trust again, to see the beauty in each women and the beauty in being only women. It is different, the communication is different, the understanding is different. It was a very safe environment fo me to open up.

I can’t tell you that now I don’t have these thoughts at all anymore, but at least I am aware of that more than ever. I am working hard on myself to keep this deep trust, and not fall back to my old emotions patterns that do not serve me any more.

Another thing that I learn was to respect my mom much more as a woman, not as a mother. It is totally different view when you look at your mom as an individual, with all their issues, life experience and so forth. My mom had tough life in many ways. She got married very young, left her career to raise the children (although she wanted to keep working), had a major car accident when she was 40, chose to divorce and live HER life, had 4 children to support by herself, no help from family and friends. She did it, but it was not an easy ride.

I am almost 40 now, and I am thinking to myself – wow, this is tough! She should be admired for what she has accomplished, it is quite amazing consider what she went through.

Third – I learned to look at my marriage in a totally different way. I was always expecting my husband to behave in  a certain way, that today I know, was impossible for him to be. Sounds ridiculous but it’s the truth! Well, there must be somethings I’ve done well, otherwise we wouldn’t be that long together 😉

I am about to read Barbara’s Book – Secrets about men every women should know’ to know more about this subject!

I am sure something really good will come out of it.

Well, I have to complete this post, I will be back to write some more in the next few days.

With love, Relli

“Some people drink from the fountain of knowledge, others just gargle”   Robert Anthony

So peaceful,so green and beautiful.This is what I see and feel entering this hotel.In warm San Diego, I am away from day-to-day time.

I took ‘Time out’, I needed one. With a house full of kids, so many chores and things to do, when do I get time for me?

I took the weekend off to look inside, look deep.  As I was sitting down to eat my sandwich, I noticed a brochure – ‘The fountains walking tour’. I took it with me and started walking down the beautiful pathways all around. Water has such a comm effect on me. I look at them, and I can see how I am relaxing, taking one bag at a time off my shoulders. The fountains here are each unique, and has its own story. I am taking lots of pictures and videos I will share when I am back. The tour and the fountains made me think about how I need to look for the flow, my own personal flow.  Water is flowing so easily, how come I am not?

Water will face resistance, they will hit some walls, but how do they always know to find the way to break through it? A question we can ask, but only nature can answer.

This weekend, I want to flow, I want to be in this unstoppable place of emotions, where I break walls. My walls are emotional, and  I am simply an excellent walls builder when it comes to emotional walls, and I can feel that  I have too many of these at that point of time.

I want to release the tension, let the body be one with the soul and spirit. When it aligns, things just fall into place. Just let it flow.

More later of tomorrow, Love,Relli

Soon I will be off to another deep process with Barbara De Angelis. One of the things I learned through my personal search for happiness, is that you need to get back to LOVE.

I thought about how can I remind myself to do/think about it as often as I can, no matter what I do, and I got an idea.

As I am spending at lease few hours a day on the computer, searching working and communicating with others, I thought that would be a great place to use the concept of LOVE.

So, I made a conscious decision to sign every email, blog, Facebook posting with the word LOVE.

I have been doing if for few weeks now, and I can feel how I am more and more connected to this concepts. I can feel more, remove emotional walls faster (I am VERY good at building then..) and I am less stressed and cranky.

It works. I once learned that Visual is Memorable, and this simple exercise help me a lot.

I challenge you to find a value you would like to remember as much as you can, and change the way you think and do things. It can be anything you want it to be.

Write it down, write it down, write it down. You will be amazed with the change and shift this one small thing can do for you.

Give it a try!

Love, Relli

These days, I am dealing with 2 teens (well, actually 3 if you count my 7 years old daughter 😉 ) . I find it to be  very challenging to get their attention, commitment and help. I am always on the hunt to learn something new about how to handle these days, not always I can apply it all :0 )

I just got this article, and wanted to share.

Although I know the concepts, a little reminder is always good. Reading it about the president made me look at my priorities. It’s all about how we manage our energy and time, and it the president can do it, I can too!

Best love, Relli
