I had been having a really rough time, accepting a job I really didn’t want that has me working in crappy conditions for way too low pay, but it was the only place that offered me a job, so I had to take it. This sent me into a big spiritual crisis for many reasons.
It has been a tough time, but then one day at work I heard the song Life Ain’t Always Beautiful by Gary Allan and it really touched me. I hadn’t heard that song in many many years but there it was playing just for me.

Wow! I took Blythe and Evan up North to celebrate her 16th brithday and what a trip it was. We spent three nights in Flagstaff at the time share. That was a pretty relaxing time for me. I sat in the hot tub twice a day every day we were there.
Then we spent a night at oak Creek Terrace Resort in Sedona/OakCreek. It is a wonderful place. They have a little beach right there along the creek and that is where I spent most of my time. Evan really loved it too and spent a lot of time down there meditating and climbing up and down the creek. Blythe loved the rainbow hammocks and hung out there qutie a lot.

It is no shocker that this past year has been quite a ride for me. I have had lots of ups and downs and have grown a lot and gone through a lot. Throughout the year there were many times that I thought I was just plain going crazy and that really bogged me down and messed with me.

It has been brought to my attention that there are some things about me that I need to admit and accept and then trust. I was having a chat with a friend of mine who happens to be psychic/channeler and at one point during our chat the Spirits interjected with some words of wisdom for me.
It’s been over a month since my last retreat and it has been intense and emotional. I am still not sure where I am going, but I do believe that is the whole point. It is accepting that and surrendering to it all that I am working on right now.
IF you have seen the movie, The Matrix, then you will get this, if you haven’t then what are you waiting for, get it and see it.
At my retreat Giselle gave me a choice: have a shamanic retreat like I have always had or she could introduce me to The Truth. I, of course, chose The Truth, took the Red Pill and she proceeded to take me down the Rabbit Hole. In fact, a month later and I am still learning just how far the Rabbit Hole goes.
