When I lived in California, I would go to a convention called Expo West, which I absolutely loved because I would always get the scoop on new health and food products coming out on the market.
I have missed it for the last couple years, but this weekend I went to a smaller but similar event called the Health Freedom Expo in Shaumberg, IL.
If you keep up with my blog, you know that I am a passionate supporter of food freedom, and this expo had a lot of people that also supports this cause. It was really wonderful to see so many people volunteering their time to provide information about all of the new legislation coming out that restricts American food and supplement choices.
But the best thing about these fairs is that they draw a variety of fascinating and wonderful people that I love to talk to.
Well, first of all, I found out about the Expo through Light Unlimited. it was wonderful to meet Phyllis Light, creator of the Rejuvenizer, in person. The first thing she said to me as I walked up is that another pendant that I was wearing was actually interfering with the benefits of the Rejuvenizer.
I took it off the bad pendant yesterday and I feel a lot better now that I only wear the Rejuvenizer.
I also probably feel better from the healing session I received at another booth. I met a wonderful man named Tom who was at a booth called Metaforms and he really cleared a lot of energy for me. He did healing work on me while I was sitting under one of the sacred geometry products that Metaforms was selling (which also felt spectacular on its own).
As I was leaving, Tom and I exchanged emails and I gave him my indigo adults email address. I normally don’t give my indigo adult information when I meet people face to face because I like to keep my content clean. (as in unbiased and un-selfconsious. A few months ago I decided that I would continue to keep the side of myself that is indigo and empath semi-confidential…not that difficult for others to find out, but not something I introduce myself with. I’m not ready to go public yet. I will in the future, but not now.)
Anyway, we exchanged emails and he said, “I read that blog” and we got into a very sweet discussion about his indigo/crystal daughter and his own indigo experiences.
It really was quite wonderful to meet someone who was on the same path and who was familiar with my writing. I wish we had had a chance to talk longer. I was at the Expo with someone else who was getting antsy so we moved on.
My final point about this fair is that I think it is wonderful that health fairs now include and acknowledge the energetic impact on health.
I would say that about 40% of the booths at this fair had information or products to support a healthy energy field and system or involved healing work on a non-tangible but extremely effective level (like cold lasers or pranic healing).
And this wasn’t the wacky-to-the-mainstream (yet lovable) crowd that hangs in Sedona. This is salt-of-the-earth Middle America. This is grandma and grandpa. This is the dude that loves cheese curds from the state fair (ha… actually, I love cheese curds from the state fair). Granted, this is the health-progressive, higher awareness population of Middle America, but it has become clear in the year that I have lived here how little exposure the mid-west has had to this type of material.
The last story I will tell you about this event is about a woman I met. I was passing her booth and I saw a stack of flyers with a picture of Amma (aka. the hugging guru).
I immediately stopped when I saw the flyer because even though I have never seen her in person, I have been aware of her work for years, and actually was randomly thinking about her the other day.
The woman at the booth came up to me and we had a lovely conversation about how Amma is building an ashram in Chicago. I asked her why Amma picked Chicago and this woman told me that it was because the vibration on the coasts have been raised but there still needs to be more energetic uplifting and a greater love vibration in the mid-west.
At that point, a light bulb went on in my head and I realized (although I always had a sneaking suspicion) that that is why I was sent to the Chicago.
Seriously, the way I got to this city was so bazaar. Why would I pick a entertainment school in Chicago (with a very low vibration) when I was right next to LA (living in Arizona) and had friends in LA and knew my way around? I even had family there.
I’ve known for a while that my location, travel and living space rarely has to do with my day-to-day life. It’s always bigger than that.
So, Amma is opening an ashram in the mid west. And somehow I was called here to help with raising the vibration here. Maybe with Amma. Maybe not. But it’s too big of a coincidence to ignore.
And I really did land at ground zero in terms of crappy vibration. I hate to say that, but this school has really taken it’s toll on me and my spirit.
But knowing that my presence, which automatically raises vibration of the space/people around me – even when I’m feeling my least energetically sound, is why I am here, and that that was part of the plan that I agreed to when I incarnated here… it makes the experience I’m having at this school not so bad and more like a personal exercise in energetic balance.
Not that I believe I incarnated here to have a bad time. It’s just that sometimes I can’t be around butterflies and puppydogs and unicorns all my life while on planet earth.
If there is an aspect to the indigo that is warrior, it truly is peaceful warrior… being able to stand in the S**T as best as possible and still connect with one’s inner peace and express that outwardly. It’s also standing up fearlessly to the injustice that we see. It’s also holding on to our joy as best we can while dealing with all of this stuff.
Anyway, I’m doing the best I can and I’m happy I’ve been given pretty clear indigo adult mission instructions. Anyone care to join me in raising the vibration of the mid-west? 🙂
I mean this figuratively and literally… here’s the info on Amma’s next visit to Chicago.
