Meet some of the community.
With the QS community growing daily I thought it about time to let members themselves tell you about their experience of it; this approach doesn’t just work for me! So let me introduce you to a ton of them, and my writing will be back tomorrow. Enjoy!
Did the earth move for you darling?
Dom heard something he’d never heard before.
I felt something move.
But we’ve never been affected by an earthquake before so it didn’t register.
It was only on yesterdays trip to see the Chocolate Shaman with more insights into quantum jumping and harnessing the life you are meant for, that we got the information that there had been an earthquake in Guatemala that morning.
So YES the earth did move for us yesterday
Of course it was always going to be a day that stuff got shifted.
The earth moving physically,
and energy coming more into alignment.
I thought I had all of the answers to my addiction, yet there was more, these answers coming physically through my right arm as well as visually.
And it was through the facilitation of my teacher that this new level of understanding became known.
It got me to thinking that it is so important to surround yourself with people that LIFT YOU UP, inspire you, and support you in being your best. And this can sometimes be difficult as we grow and our loved ones don’t, or our friends don’t understand why we want to not drink at all (there is much discussion along these lines at the moment on the private online programme forum). I use these two quotes all of the time and think they’re spot on:
“We are the average of the five people we spend the most time with”
“What you think, you become”
Actually as I write this I am wearing a t-shirt which has these words of Buddha on the back! That is how much I love them!
It’s important to have a teacher or a mentor; someone who has already done what you are aspiring to, who has walked in your shoes and understands where you currently are. This person believes in you and your dream, and just being in their presence allows you to step up and start to believe in yourself too.
I am so happy to be in Guatemala with my teacher, I’m so grateful to him and the guidance he gives me. Each time I have a session with him I step into myself more fully and come home a little more, I feel a greater understanding of who I am and what my work on the planet is all about.
Meditation is where it is happening.
The FAST TRACK to happiness, peace, contentment, good health and love.
The quickest way to eliminate: overwhelm, addiction, negativity and stress.
Everyone needs a teacher to learn to be more of themselves.
Have you got one?
And if not, why not?
Is addiction your teacher?
None of it was wrong.
Whatever your addiction has led you to do, had to happen to bring you to this point, reading this blog and learning about QS.
It was all meant to be like this.
YOUR ADDICTION IS YOUR TEACHER
So what is it teaching you?
The answer is what the QS meditations guide you towards, and I got a big fat answer a couple of days ago which I alluded to in yesterdays blog. My mentor pulled the information out of me like blood from a stone; I thought I’d leant what I needed to from my addiction teacher but no there was a lot more…..
I have never fit in.
As far back as I can remember there are memories of acting out, rebelling on every level, of doing things a different way.
And then as I began to let my light shine I got scared
It was too bright
I was visible and I didn’t want to show my differences
So I began to dull myself down
I drank to numb out
I partied hard by night and slunk into the shadows by day
I withdrew into the internal fight of addiction
Aged 16 with cigarettes all the way through to 40 years old; one substance after another diminishing my light
And it went on until I could accept myself for who I really was
Until it felt safe to be me
But in those dark years it was like I was trying to kill the real me, obliterate her, and offer the world what I thought it wanted me to be instead
I’m shocked looking back at how little regard I had for me back then
How I truly believed I wasn’t enough
When all I had to really do was be more me, rather than less
I had it completely back to front
And so many go through life like this totally unaware of what they are doing. But us addicts have chosen a teacher to guide us back to ourselves. Without the drugs and alcohol I would probably still be walking around blindly appeasing the world around me, and I am thankful to them for teaching me how to like and then love myself.
Now I can conduct myself as my authentic self
I no longer need to show the world another face, a false language or an exaggerated version of me.
What you see is what you get now, and I am ok if people don’t understand or get me. For my life is at last congruent on every level and if feels so good to be me again!
And what did I do to achieve this?
You know me well enough by now to know the answer I’m sure!
Sitting with yourself, over and over again.
Learning about who you really are
Realising that you ARE enough just as you are
Thank you drugs
Thank you cigarettes
Thank you wine
Without you I wouldn’t know myself half as well as I do now.
None of it was wrong.
It all had to be like this, and I am eternally grateful for what I have learned.
I’m not going to do it for you.
This is the biggest difference between Quantum Sobriety and addiction programmes of old.
In the past it’s been about giving your power over to something outside of yourself, to the teacher or higher power. QS is the total opposite:
You take your power back
NO ONE can do this for you
NO ONE has the power to change YOUR mindset other than you.
So the teacher can give you ACCESS to the tools, information and path, but the teacher CANNOT do the work for you.
This means that as frustrating as it sometimes is for the teacher, it is their job to hold the space for the work to be done but to get out of the way and not control the situation.
Every single person on the planet arrives with lessons to learn.
No one is an exception to this.
I’m sure you can look back and already see that what has happened to you has taught you so much.
Every single person on the planet arrives with a means to learn these lessons:
Addiction, illness, tragedy, struggle of some kind.
Nobody gets off!
Addiction is ours, and if we don’t listen to the message that it brings and learn the lesson that it offers we will die not knowing.
BUT because you are reading this, your frequency is dialled in to mine.
YOU ARE READY.
I keep getting these three words whispered in my ear, over and over again.
YOU ARE READY.
We are about to step into a time so exciting that I can hardly contain my excitement.
This community is ready for transformation.
Many are already there; looking forward to their first sober Christmas as an adult.
Not struggling, not triggered, not wishing they could have ‘just one’,
but CELEBRATING THEIR SOBRIETY.
We have been preparing for this the whole of our lives, and in the community for the past couple of months. QS is ready for it’s first Christmas!
So I can open the door for you.
I can offer you the tools.
I will guide you to freedom.
But YOU have to make the commitment, because I can’t do it for you, as then you won’t be able to hold the frequency.
If you are ready then please don’t delay in joining us, freedom tastes so sweet.
And what better Christmas present can you give yourself?
Your cover’s blown.
I see you in all of your glory.
I believe in you.
Your covers blown
You cannot hide away any longer, numbing out with substances and behaviours that make you small.
No more pretending.
It is time.
If I can see the light inside you then why can’t you?
Why do you keep shutting down and giving yourself less than you deserve?
Your covers blown
There is no more hiding.
As we close down this nine year cycle (2+0+1+6=9) we all step out onto a different shore.
It will become increasingly difficult to live out of our truth.
Only when we are in it will we feel alive.
And it is this aliveness, joy and happiness that we must follow….
Follow The Magic.
Do only what feels good.
Why would you do the other stuff?
When we live from the heart we follow magic, bliss, happiness and truth.
THAT is what this next nine year cycle is all about (2+0+1+7=10 & 1+0=1)
We are not meant to struggle, even though society has always told us so.
We are not meant to be unhappy, even though we are taught ‘life is tough’
We are not meant to be addicted, even though alcohol and crappy food is EVERYWHERE.
When you are part of this community you live a different way.
No longer do you accept what has gone before.
EVERYTHING IS NEW NOW.
YOU are ready for this next cycle that is about to begin, and I’d actually say has already begun. I certainly can feel a change in the air, can you?
There has been a lot of sickness flying around in the past few weeks.
The weather has been crazy too (certainly here in Guatemala!).
It’s like a final shakedown as we approach this new paradigm.
Forcing us into our truth.
And there is one piece of magic that I want you to be VERY aware of.
When it happens it is a pure message guiding us towards our truth. It is:
This is a higher form of message than words.
And if you have a question to ask, or guidance to seek then ask away and have your eyes open to the message that comes back. It won’t arrive as you expect it! We are entering an age where everything is lighter, brighter, more effortless, IF YOU ALLOW IT TO BE.
You have to of course have your eyes open for these magical messages.
They are subtle so you have to be ready.
You must be willing to let them in.
The magical teaching of cacao in her homeland.
Today we say goodbye to our beloved Guatemala and head back to the UK.
We both feel so blessed to have Lake Atitlan in our lives and of course cacao which is what brought us here in the first place.
She is a plant medicine like no other.
She’s soft and gentle, coaxing you into beautiful places within yourself that you never thought imaginable. Yesterday it being our last full day on the lake I had my own private cacao ceremony as Dom walked up the volcano (which is his meditation and way of connection through nature). I had the most powerful and intense meditation with tears streaming down my face as I touched in on something so magical, so enchanting, almost miraculous.
It is a place that cacao has shown me.
Somewhere that I can now take myself without her, but she initiated the way.
There is something about consuming cacao here in Guatemala in her homeland that has taken my connection to her, and myself, to the next level. The Cacao Shaman pointed to the volcanoes on the other side of the lake and told me that she comes from just beyond there, lower down in the forests nearer the coast; she likes it warmer than up here in the highlands.
We were meant to go to our last ceremony with the Cacao Shaman on Monday but Dom and I were both feeling odd after the ceremony on Sunday, plus the weather has been crazy wild here the last 48 hours or so, so we decided to stay at the eco-lodge and rest.
However there was a huge battle between my head and heart.
Head: “It’s the last ceremony and a great opportunity, you should go”
Heart: “You’ve had enough energy work already, stay here”
It was tough as I watched this internal battle.
And it was only when I fully realised what was going on that I knew exactly what I needed to do. What we ALWAYS need to do:
LISTEN TO YOUR HEART
For your heart knows best.
This is the voice of truth.
Head is stuck in addiction and the past, but heart KNOWS your unique truth.
The decision was then make and I let the battle go.
We had a lovely relaxed day watching the wind whip the lake water into the air; we even got wet on a number of occasions as it lifted 2 or 3 stories up to where we were sitting!
A boat came untied and floated all night in the bay, a huge window smashed, numerous plant pots and a whole trellis fell over, there were even swirling vortexes of water on the lake. And unfortunately a worker at the lodge was hit by a flying piece of wood and rushed to hospital to have stitches.
HIGH ENERGY STUFF
And so I sat with it.
I observed and watched the force of nature.
And then yesterday the Chocolate Shaman (Keith) and his partner Barbara came to see us at the lodge to say goodbye and we got him all to ourselves over breakfast! What a gift! What amazing friends! How lucky are we!
So our last day turned into the most powerful of them all.
Paying homage to cacao in her homeland, enjoying the journey she has taken me on over the last three years, and spending time with my teacher. And I wanted to share the experience because cacao is connected to the heart; she can be (if you are connected to her, not everyone is) a facilitator on the journey to truth and transformation, and she is the reason we physically travel to Guatemala (with empty suitcases outbound and full of the sweet smell of cacao inbound). You can purchase her here if you’d like to try for yourself.
And this photo is of the four of us yesterday, friends and quantum travel companions!
Member Quote’s Of The Week.
In this section you will read something that has been said by one of the Quantum Sobriety Online Programme members over on the very lively private forum:
“A deep desire to change and live a more fulfilling life started me out on the road to recovery, but QS has helped me to stay sober, and be happy in my sobriety. I now fully believe anything is possible and I no longer feel like I am missing out, or unlucky with my ‘lot’. In fact, I feel very lucky, and free at last. I have grown up on this program and have learnt to sit with my feelings and manage them in a healthy way. The victim mentality has been replaced with a strong and confident woman. This program has given me the tools to change old behaviours and to forgive myself. The past is the past. I look to the future. Jo De Rosa is a truly fantastic coach and I am part of a very supportive and loving community of like-minded people. I love the guided meditations, and each month is carefully thought out to mirror your journey, what you are going through and encountering in recovery. I urge anyone, wanting to find peace and freedom from an addiction or negative behaviour to join Quantum Sobriety. You will never look back, only forward and it will empower you to make positive and lasting changes in your life” M, Online Programme, UK
