I don’t like going to pubs — I don’t like big parties, huge concerts or really any kind a larger gathering of people. There it is, I said it out loud!
However, if you've ever meet me at a party I can be quite happy, funny and even charming…for a short while. But I am the one that leaves too early, often under the radar, without saying an official good bye. I sneak out and when the door closes behind me, I draw a deep breath and go: Finally! SPACE TO BE!
I am what many would call ”an introvert”. What is that? Wikipedia says: Introverts are drained by social encounters and energized by solitary, often creative pursuits. Their disposition is frequently misconstrued as shyness but many introverts socialize easily; they just strongly prefer not to.
That is pretty right on, as a description! It goes on to say that introverts are more interested in what goes on on the inside, than on the outside. I am actually not so sure about that part… I would...
When I started Access Consciousness®, my main issue was really how to be. And I mean with everything and everyone.
I was so darn accomplished and likable and good at everything. And yet I was utterly confused about who I was.
When I was a kid, I was, "different." I was told I was childish, a bit weird and way too nice. And on top of that I was really good in school. In fourth grade, I was so bullied that my parents moved to another part of town, and I got to start again, at another school.
I made sure I would never be bullied again. I started to wear the in-clothes, said the 'right' things and made friends with the most liked and coolest girls in the class. I discovered that I could be really, really good at that as well — at fitting in.
My strategy was quite basic: making sure people liked me (even though I was dead sure that if they saw who I truly be, they definitely would not). I became a star chameleon!
And life went on. I very successfully used my chameleon talents...
I’ve always wanted to be an explorer, to go where no one has ever gone before.
And I’ve done some crazy things in my life; crossed the border from El Salvador in the back of a truck, walked red poppy-fields with talibans and flown on a Russian airplane with as many goats and pigs, as people.
Yet, every adventure was always somehow still within the edges of the known world…everything had been said, seen and done before.
I desired to go where the old maps said: Beware, Beyond Here Be Dragons!
I knew there had to be something more, something different, something yet un-explained … What was the point of being here otherwise?
It really wasn’t until I began taking Access Consciousness® classes that I realised that those darn irritating known edges were … not … real.
The world is actually INFINITE, there are dragons everywhere — and they are BEAUTIFUL!
Today I am a facilitator of consciousness. I get to explore the creative edges of...
