To say that I am a little excited would be the understatement of the year! I am super stoked and on fire! (In spite of the recent cancellation of the PEI Marathon I was training diligently for.) Why am I so excited, you ask? Well, thank you for asking! I have a little background story to tell you….
On June 12, 2012, I had a catastrophic memory loss episode. Without going into the many details, I could get lost in my own neighbourhood and not remember anything you just told me 15 seconds prior!
Now, back to why I am so excited. In May of 2010, I was blessed/gifted with a knowing (a download from Spirit) of the Philosophy of the Shin Dao. It came to me in a blinding flash while I was driving to Lethbridge on Highway 2. Not the best time to have an epiphany, in my books, but that’s what happened.
(I wrote three best selling fiction books around Shin Dao Philosophy – the A Warrior’s Heart Trilogy – available on Amazon).
Now insert my catastrophic memory loss episode from 2012. I was mentally unable to pursue and share/teach the learnings I was gifted with regarding the Shin Dao Philosophy. Just as fast as the philosophy appeared, it disappeared!
Tina slowly embraced the spotty teachings of the Shin Dao that I was able to share with her. She soon took on the mantle of primary trainer and keeper of the Shin Dao wisdom. (Thank you, my love, you will never know how much I appreciate you picking up the teachings.)
Now here we are, August 2020. The memories and the teachings I was so blessed to receive are returning and it has fired me up.
Why is the Shin Dao philosophy so important to me? Because the Shin Dao doesn’t override anyone’s current spiritual beliefs or rituals. It actually builds or enhances them.
No matter where you are on your path, the Path of the Shin Dao assists you in living the life of your dreams. It brings the magic back into your life.
And the most important reason why I am fired up about sharing the Shin Dao Philosophy now is that I lost the teachings in 2012 because I didn’t write them down before the memory loss episode.
I was too embarrassed to share the teachings, and too embarrassed to share that I had this download from spirit. I was afraid that no one would listen. I felt unworthy of the profound knowledge that was gifted to me!
I lost the gift/knowledge once and I am not going to let the opportunity to share Shin Dao with the world slip by again. I am fully committed to sharing The Way of the Heart!
