Today is one documented as a “WOW” day, especially after a magnificent breakfast and conversation with my friend and fellow Life Adventurer, Mike Dooley (writes “Notes From The Universe”), who came to my home city of Perth (Australia) to share his teachings with ‘Playing the Matrix’. While he was here, I got the chance to catch up with him. I’ll get back to telling you more about his event (and how you can go to it too) in a minute…
I’ve just dropped Mike off to the domestic airport, where he is now heading for Melbourne. As we got out of the car he said, “let’s get a picture!” So we both grabbed our cameras, and here’s (above) the magic shot!
Rather than just post this pic on Facebook to share, I really felt the urge to indulge you with some realizations (and lots of MAGIC) that occurred today.. or at least became ‘known’.
Let me tell you how I met ‘Magnificent’ Mike Dooley (he really is a wonderful soul whom you must meet), since what both he and I teach is all about manifesting the life of your dreams, and what I have to share today is all about MANIFESTING, particularly how we met – which is pure divinity in it’s finest form, along with synchronicity!
During breakfast, I shared with Mike the circumstances that led us to meet, the first time… in Africa September 2011.
One particular day in last March 2011 I made two life-changing decisions. Two decisions that had been nudging me for years, but that I had been holding off until that one morning.
I’m going to go on an African Safari “this” year (2011); and
I’m going to set in motion the launch of my first ‘Mastermind-Adventure’
The first goal was challenging in itself, as I already had a VERY busy travel schedule in 2011 and wasn’t sure where or when it would fit it. It didn’t matter. That was not for me to determine, ultimately. I just knew I needed to set the intention and GO TO AFRICA.
The second goal scared the hell out of me. It meant commitment. It meant, going out on a limb. It meant stretching myself into a ‘dark’ area, meaning I couldn’t see where I was going other than the vision in my head. I had to access all areas of confidence in my life where I have succeeded to ‘cross-pollinate’ it into my vision and dream, so I could take action. I had to believe I could do it.
That one morning in March, with my new commitments and both written down on my ‘to action’ list, I celebrated with a cup of coffee. After I settled back down into my seat at my home-office desk, I enjoyed my coffee break as I flicked through Facebook.
Perusing the ‘main feed’ my eyes caught a random post (to this day I can’t remember who posted it or what it specifically said.. I never thought I’d blog about this, so didn’t take a screen shot). The post was a comment about a trip in Africa, with a link attached.
I clicked the link.
And life has never been the same again!
The link led me through to www.tut.com …I read the page and clicked through to the tours… and at that time Mike Dooley was promoting an African Safari in Kenya …which I signed up for IMMEDIATELY. When I had read through his website pages, this man (who I recognized from the movie “The Secret”) resonated with my soul. I got ‘spirit-bumps’ all over my body and KNEW that this was an extremely fast response to my ‘request’. The thing is, my thoughts for a trip to Africa (as were the ones for creating my own Mastermind-Adventures club) had been almost pounding the inside of my heart and skull for several years. I can just imagine that the ‘Universe’ and Angels alike all celebrated with relief when I finally just said and took action for ‘WHAT I REALLY WANTED!.’
So, I booked the trip and went on one of the most amazing adventures of my life!
Mike and I discussed at breakfast this morning that it was one of the best adventures we had been on, and he said it was the best adventure for the TUT tours to date. There really is something incredibly MAGICAL about Africa.
When traveling across the glorious distances of savannah and African landscape, I spent some time with Mike chatting away in the van. We had already made a great connection the first morning of the tour at breakfast, where we realized we had a lot in common. But it was this more intimate discussion we had during the hours of driving that reinforced my own dreams, beliefs and desires for creating my own Mastermind-Adventure club, to share with others how to ‘Design Your Life, Live Your Dreams’ while DOING it!
I knew then with more awareness than ever that there was an incredible force of alignment…
So it is, with this new and great friend of mine, Mike Dooley, and the incredible adventure we had in Africa, that influenced me to set my first Mastermind-Adventure for TANZANIA, Africa (right next door to Kenya). It’s a 15-day “Hike & Safari” (includes 7-days Mount Kilimanjaro and 7-days Safari.)
(I must note, that also a friend on the tour, Ellen St John, had also brought the possibility of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to light. My immediate response was “No Way! I can’t!” …then I caught myself and decided, “If I ‘can’t,’ then I must!”)
So it was during breakfast that we both marveled at how amazing manifesting is… and even more exciting when you notice the network of events that synchronize to align what it is you ask for.
