Thank you all who attended the first Youth Drop-In on Tuesday! It was so wonderful to meet kindred spirits from the Niagara area!
I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but the first turnout was a success! There was a lot of story telling, tea drinking and laughing! Not to mention meeting awesome new people!! Some of the topics we discussed included:
- Reiki and energy healing – (3 of us were practitioners!)
- crystals and gemstones
- Mediumship and Lily Dale, New York
- meditation and transcendental meditation
- communication with friends and family who have passed
- out of body experiences
- angel cards and tarot
The reason why these meetings are so important is that we offer a space where any discussion of spirituality is made in a safe and non-judgmental environment. Sometimes it is hard to talk about these things because there is a certain negative stigma attached. Our goal is to erase this stigma. It is normal and natural to experience these things or have a curiosity about them. It has nothing to do with superstition or any other negative connotation that society has unfortunately branded to it. Because it is looked at this way, many people fail to recognize the many beneficial and healing aspects of knowing about and understanding these things. Intelligent people will first investigate this information before they criticize it.
For those of you who are interested in attending the next Youth Drop-In: in addition to offering a safe space for conversation, we’ll be doing some Spiritual Cork-Boarding! ! These are handy tools to help manifest and focus your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual goals.
Here’s what Spiritual Cork-Boarding (or Vision Boards or Dream Boards ) typically look like:
You might have heard of Vision Boarding from the movie The Secret, which teaches about the Law Of Attraction. Vision Boards are tools to help you use this Law more effectively. This Law states that like attracts like, (or consequentially, UN-like attracts UN-like) and that everything you send out on a vibrational and energetic level you receive back to you.
Everything is energy. Thoughts are energy. You use your thoughts and emotions to manifest your physical reality. You attract people or situations because of the thoughts you send out on a daily basis. Vision Boards help fine tune and focus your thoughts to help you send energy towards anything you want to manifest or create in your life.
Please bring whatever materials you want use to make your board, like markers, paint, pencil crayons, pictures of your role models, images of places you want to go, items, symbols, postcards, feathers, images, etc. We will supply materials as well!
