Being stuck in moderation for my last post on the last day wasn’t the way I wanted to go out. I thought we had finally gotten that figured out.

But, life will move forward. Thanks to all for your contributions. I’m so thrilled to have done this with all of you.

It’s not stuck in moderation. Maybe just for a few minutes but I see your post.

thanks. I wrote, and they worked on it. It only had 12 hour delay, but thought the site was doing down today, so was sad. πŸ™‚ Thanks.

I wrote tech an email about moderation in hopes to avoid next year. I thought the site was down at noon today, so nice to see if still here. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Maybe it’s tomorrow at noon πŸ™‚
See everyone soon!!!

I loved the call today. I love the extra time they allowed us to have. Allowing me to share thoughts I’ve had throughout this course, yet never really put into words. It was so helpful. And, Amy…I can so relate to the feeling of “laying on his chest”. I loved your share. I relate,….and am longing for it. I can feel that too. it has become so easy to feel his presence in this last month in many different ways. Mostly the familiar feelings I’ve had in the past that are so good! I had an amazing day at the Alameda Fair. As I said on the call, I sat on a bench in the garden section which was so amazing with waterfalls, etc, and listened to the call (and the blues band in the background). My nephew showed his pig in the morning. My brother has a pig pen in Oakland and has done this for 13 years now. My brother and I walked around to exhibitions. My sis in law won 1st place for zucchini bread yesterday and got a free pass she gave to me..along with a parking pass. My sis even with her horrible medical mess… Read more »

Hi All: Letting everyone know that I am now all taken care of for a place to stay on Sunday night the 9th. I will stay with a composer friend of my who was the long time husband of my piano teacher in Berkeley. My piano teacher died now several years ago. Allen is remarried so I was a little shy about asking. But its all good. Allen said yes immediately. This is such a longtime friendship-I studied voice with Allen and played piano for his voice students back in my 20s. He helped me pass the audition to get into the SF Symphony Chorus where I got to sing one of my favorite pieces in the world, Bach’s St. Matthew Passion. My small child (now 25 years ago) and I used to stay with Allen and Barbara back when we would come to LA to see family and then travel up to Berkeley to see these close musician friends. Its all good-making these connections….I’ve lived in Boston for almost 40 years but I grew up in Calif. and went to Univ of Calif at Santa Cruz 68-72. Yes, those fraught years of Nixon and the Vietnam War hell. And… Read more »

Wonderful! Happy to see how all of this is coming together.

Dear Sisters:
I am wondering if one of you who live near the Berkeley-Oakland area might be able to put me up for Sunday night? My airplane is an overnight flight leaving at 11pm on Monday night from Oakland airport (jet blue). I didn’t look for an airbnb soon enough for that Sunday night and its looking more complicated than I thought.

Just in case…..and apologies for not asking for help on this sooner.

Dear Emerald Sisters, Hello! Thanks for all of the wonderful shares; with each one comes a nugget of wisdom and inspiration that helps to keep me strong each week<3<3. I wanted to post today and share how things are going. I'm getting over Pat more and more each day and it actually feels good to not be in contact with him. It is helping clear the emotional bond that had developed and giving me space to communicate with others over match and keep my mind and heart focused on the bigger vision… to be with my soulmate who is 100% available and loves, loves, loves to be with me<3<3. It feels good just to write this! I saw a beautiful film last night that helped put this in focus for me…it's called the Wedding Plan and is about a Jewish woman in Jerusalem who wants very much to be married. She did the same, keeping her eye on what she most wanted (including real and true love) while also letting God and the universe direct her. Thank you universe for leading me to this beautiful story. I remember hearing about a love launch woman who keeps re-confirming her commitment to… Read more »

Very beautiful and inspiring share Amy thank you! Now that the program is nearing completion it is good to know of women so committed and in a good space.

Congratulations of moving away from Pat, I am so glad it’s getting easier. I too was finally able to move on and see all of the ways he was holding me back.

I am allowing more friends, adventure and love in my life, now that the space he was taking is empty and ready to be filled with love again. Committed love that is.

See you soon!

I am remembering Johnny and Lara talking about how the people who have found and are with their soulmates are the ones who did not give up. I see this is you.

Hello ladies!! Today I have been sitting in the space of forgiveness. I was finally able to forgive myself for something I have been very hard on myself for. For the first time I was able to both forgive myself and give myself the space to grow. In the past I had been concerned that if I forgave myself it would let me off the hook for further growth. I’ve noticed in this program the increased ability to hold “both” in different areas. Like boundaries AND and open heart. I love this learning and growth! The real victory is forgiving myself. This is HUGE! I also noticed today that while focusing on forgiveness I have been present to being a warrior and compassionate. This has me being present to being a LOVE warrior. In the past I have not really had a lot of compassion for people with physical challenges. This was less about them and more about me having a “tough girl, tough it out” attitude in the past. Going through this very painful physical experience the last seven weeks I have SO much compassion for people I see, particularly in wheel chairs. I saw a man on Match… Read more »

Alexandra,

This is beautiful and you are beautiful! I have greatly appreciated reading your insights and shares about your personal growth as we have traveled on this path together. I am so happy you are able to forgive yourself. We are always harder on ourselves than anyone else. I see forgiveness not as letting someone off the hook, but getting out of the past and preparing myself for better things in the future. This is a HUGE step. So very happy for you!

Love and blessings, Kelly

Alexandra: Beautiful share, and hope you are feeling better. Sometimes the emotional wounds we have come out as physical pain etc. as it is all connected, so forgiving yourself will be a huge help in healing and establishing a loving relationship with yourself! I see you grow and heal on many levels thru the months and am so happy for your progress. I too came to the conclusion that I need to forgive myself and move on, as I was blaming myself for causing the layoff from a good and well paying job recently. I decided that an environment that is not supportive of my talents and abilities does not deserve me, and forgave myself for being triggered and behaving in a tough manner, the truth is I was not really happy at this job anyway. There is a reason we go thru things, my current loss of a relationship and a job was really hard, but in retrospect it has made me stronger and more appreciative of who I am and what I want. I am sure whatever you needed to forgive yourself for made you wiser and stronger as well, so a good step forward in loving and… Read more »

Hello everyone. I want to announce that Deb Hamlin from the Emerald Wall, Cheryl Hammond from the Sapphire Wall, and Melanie Wiscount from the Ruby Wall have started a secret and closed Facebook group named “And So It Is”. The url is: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1344527888962016/ However, if you try to use the link to get to the site now, you will not see it or have access. Only members can find the group and see posts which makes it a secret and closed Facebook group page. After the Love Warrior Weekend, we will use the email addresses in TLLP Community Forum to send each of you an invite to be a member of the group. I will also have a handout which we will distribute to each one of you at the Love Warrior Weekend. Group members invited will be the graduates of the 2016-2017 TLLP. Additionally, Lara and Johnny are also invited to be members of our Facebook group. We hope that we can use this online space to keep in touch, catch up, share with, and support one another as we go beyond the program. The energy of our community is powerful. Let us take this beautiful power forward in… Read more »

Hi Deb:
Thank you all for doing this for us! How wonderful that we can continue to be connected in that way. Will there also be an emeralds only subset? I honestly feel somewhat delinquent with our TLLP program as if I’ve been able to do no aspect of it up to what it asks for. I’m not sure if its my life, me or what? Not been able to use this wall consistently either. I’ve joined high value woman partly to give myself more time and more of a chance. So, thank you, for doing the facebook group for us–For me personnally it seems like a way to give myself more of a chance.

We 3 had a wonderful long conference call when I arrived in CA on Sunday. I did bring up that several of us emerald women had discussed maybe setting one up for just us again. Then Cheryl mentioned that hers isn’t very active. I learned that we emeralds apparently REALLY ROCK!!! Cheryl is excited and looking forward to having us as an addition, as only a hand full were active on hers. This new one just might work well enough for us. It will bring in some new blood, but probably won’t even be twice as large as ours is now. So, let’s see how this one works. If we still feel we want our intimate “Emerald” group back, we can do that. :). But, I have a feeling we will love this new version. And will give us the change to get to know some of the other gals…I have a feeling it will work out well. I have faith in the fact that this change, and letting to, is all about moving forward. Let’s see how it unfolds. In letting go, we often receive more. I’m being open with this unknown future. It’s good practice to experience change.… Read more »

Thanks to you Lovely Ladies from all 3 gem circles for doing this!! I am soooo grateful & want to keep in touch in community, as we encourage each other to keep trusting the process & moving forward, continually using the practices & principles in our daily lives.
I am on Facebook in a very limited fashion, mostly for these kind of private positive support groups ( 2 others). Hey, I just changed my email for my Facebook account. So it won’t work with the email listed under my profile here. (You might need to ask the ladies what email their Facebook account is under in order for it to work.) Please send the invite to: ariadnesage777@gmail.com. Big Love & Thanks Deb! ~ Sage

Yes we had discussed this. I don’t think anyone has the gmail address as their fb accounts. But, the flyer that will be given out at the camp will say that an email will be sent to the address you used for the class (gmail). There will be info on that how to find the group. We feel assured one way or another we will connect. I’m already friends with more than a hand full…you included Sage :). Consider yourself covered! :). Hugs.
We might have to have a conversation on your 777……I’m Deb7. Guess we both have a 7 thing? :).

Dear Ladies: I will be sad when this wall goes down, it’s been so nice communicating here and getting to know you better and getting the loving support. As per Johnny and Lara’s advise plus my new therapist’s as well, I did go to the temple finally last night after 3 months. I texted Juan to let him know I am coming back, but just for me to meditate and asking that he would not approach or engage me, since he is an usher in the temple. I came a bit late on purpose and saw him walking back and forth waiting for me and looking at the door. I just waived him hello from the distance, and proceed to the 2nd floor, so that he did not have to open the doors for me to the main chapel. I was so glad to be back, finally meditating and praying again and doing my spiritual sadana. Sure enough I cried a little, and left waiting a little for people to leave, I did not want to talk to anybody. It worked out great, and I feel so much better for going and standing in my independence! I saw Juan was… Read more »

This week has been a REAL test on my commitment of being a LOVE WARRIOR. It was on my schedule to listen to the last call since Monday but could not get to it until last night. It was timely and wonderful (as always). Also a lesson in being gentle with myself and trust that I am in the right place at the right time.

Loving all of your post beautiful ladies,

Beautiful Calina, you got it done at exactly the right time.

I have often noticed this thing about timing…when I wanted to do something and just couldn’t get to it. It happens often for me with books — I buy them and then don’t find the time to read them for quite a while. When I do finally get it it, I get a special message that would have only made sense at exactly that time.

Hello Loving Supportive Emerald Ladies, I thank Johnny for his repeated suggestions to become active on this wall. I never thought it would be so important for me. I know now and can’t agree more. Thank you for being here, for me, with me, loving me, supporting me, believing in me. I am very grateful to have had this time of sharing with you. A couple weeks ago, a man emailed me mentioning he thought my profile was great and it would be his pleasure to get to know me. I loved his profile and was pleased to reply. It proceeded very slow (thought that was interesting!) but realized he was not at all like his profile. I didn’t reply to his last email but instead stood up, did the ‘swipe outta my way’ hand movement, and kicked him out of the way, saying, ‘So What? Now what? Who’s next?’ In the past I would have attempted to keep the communication going, surely he’s just …whatever…and felt rejected. Not this time…How FREEING! I felt proud of ME, confident and strong, standing in my power in this way. Just not a match! Thank you Johnny and Lara for all the tools… Read more »

Dear Anne,

I’m so glad you did. The wall wouldn’t be the same without you. Congratulations on being kind to yourself, standing in your power, and washing that dude out your hair. I’m so proud of you!!! I really feel like we’ve come a long way to see as Johnny says its not rejection. It’s just making space for the right person. It’s helpful to me to feel I am making a choice FOR my match by removing men who are not my match. I love how you didn’t make alibis or excuses, he just wasn’t your guy.

This is so wonderful. I look forward to giving you a big hug soon. Kisses and whooses (and back to work)-Shy

Very nice move with the hand swipe and gentleman who was not what he seemed…. I am going to borrow the hand swipe!! What a great action for keeping away from us what is not for us!
Very excited to see you and our other sisters at LWTC! Keep loving yourself, every day!!

Quick Share Lovely Emeralds! Missing responding to everyone’s posts but reading and cheering you all on! Hoping to respond more individually to everyone soon. Busy with new manager at work, overtime at work, some job exploration dancing, a very tragic death in the family (yesterday- still processing this shock), joined a group online to do some work around childhood wounds/ healing issues (digging a little deeper there but not veering off the path.)
Celebration! I had this amazing dream of being with my soulmate. It was so comforting, real & easy. I went back to sleep & resumed my same dream, woke up feeling really comforted. I think I might be integrating the belief of him being there for me in my subconscious now. Wow! Getting ready & excited to see you all soon! ~ Big Love~ Sage

Weekly Update. Hello Emerald Ladies! I pushed myself and am now recovering from some stomach bug…and appreciating the time it has given me to reflect…on myself, the changes I’ve made in this program and the changes I still want to make. I went to the annual family fishing trip last weekend. I was nervous about the reception I would get (as my Dad’s side doesn’t really like my mother). It went really well. My nephews learned to fish, play mini golf and did kid stuff while my dad and I caught up around the bonfire, shared early morning coffee by the lake and a love for action hero women. It’s like some hole is filled deep inside… I can see how I attracted needy men bc I wouldn’t acknowledge my own need and felt like I didn’t need to love or be loved bc of fears of being hurt, rejected or having the love offered not be enough. Sitting by the Chesapeake, watching the sunrise in silence with my dad was enough. I feel at peace and clearer about what I need and desire in my partner. I guess I don’t feel like I’m trying to complete my parents unfinished… Read more »

OMG Shy! So powerful & packed with insights. Awareness is the first step, accepting, processing, so now you are well on your way to healing these things. Seems like the feeling of calmness, peace & clarity speaks to healing. It is so interesting how we relate to our Father & healing around that relationship is so important. I remember the letter writing we did in TLBT weekend to both our Earthly & Heavenly Father was a powerful exercise. Thanks for reminding me I need to do more around this. Way to go to say NO & stand your ground. High Fives~ Big Love ~ Sage

HI, Sage! I too find it interesting how those childhood opposite sex parental relationships can play such a big role in adult relationships. I remember a movie quote about “We accept the love we think we deserve”. and if girls get a great sense of their values from dad…it makes complete sense. I forgot about the letter writing exercise in TLBTW. I will dig up those old journals. I’m curious to see what I wrote. Thanks!

PS You’re doing a lot just by being here. Kisses and whooses-Shy

Lara Fernandez

Shy,
There’s so much power and goodness in this post! YEAH! Congrats on being courageous and going to the family fishing trip even though you were nervous. Congrats on what sounds like a lovely and amazing connection with your dad and what a gift that it helped you see clearly what you want and need in a romantic relationship.

AND…. congrats on saying NO to taking on your mom’s responsibility. THIS IS SO FRICKIN’ HUGE, SHY! I am SO PROUD of you!!!!! It’s not easy breaking habits… and you’re doing it!!!!

Yay!!! Thank you so much, Lara. For everything. I thought about you guys and my emerald sisters through the hysterics…love warriors don’t give in. My mom was not happy with “all those crazy California people who don’t know how family works”. But I am very happy. lol.

Get well soon.

Thanks so much, Kelly! He told me he was proud of me, I was brave and strong. And it really meant a lot. To have those qualities seen and valued (not you’re too much/’can you be less, girl’). I just feel that what happened between my parents is between them. I choose to go forward. I feel so much lighter. It’s exactly what I had to both release (heaviness, emotional turmoil) and gain (lightness of being, hope, clarity and happiness) at the last weekend.

The puppy…oh my. The audacity is truly amazing…. See you soon! Love-Shy

Sorry to hear you are under the weather. I was down for over two weeks, and have to admit, I LOVED it. Total pampering. I shut down and just lounged and took care of myself. Even watched some DVD’s. At one point fearing I had pneumonia, and then the next, up and running with the cough completely gone. Thanks to my healer and a acupuncturist I’ve been going to for about two months now. The Chinese herbs and tea changed my life. I’m so proud of the growth I’ve seen in you with your relationships in your family. You are such a treasure, and so thrilled to see you standing your ground. And, the peace you have with your dad. I would do anything to just sit in the quiet with my dad. I’m thrilled you have the opportunity to do that, and to heal your thoughts of your childhood. Looking forward to the weekend, and seeing your beautiful face.

Hi Deb! I’m on the mend…headed back to work tomorrow. I didn’t want to use too many days for LWTC. My body just really needed me to listen.

Thanks for sharing about your dad, Deb. It does feel like significant growth and healing has occurred. I definitely feel more emotionally solid (able to feel my feelings and reasonable communicate them). I can see I ran myself into the ground to avoid my sadness. But the periods of repression/avoidance are much much shorter. It’s progress. I remind myself life doesn’t have to be perfect to be wonderful.

See you next week!

I have a class call on my calendar for June 30th at 6:30. I put it there a long time ago. I know dates have changed and we now have a call on July 4th. Do we have both? Johnny mentioned the call on the 4th, but not sure we have one just 4 days prior also? When I go to the β€œProgram Modules”, I see June 30th and July 4th are both on there. Can anyone clarify??? Sorry to be so distant. My trip to CA has been moved up, and am busy emptying my entire kitchen to prepare for a remodel on return. I didn’t plan on being in bed for two weeks so am playing catch up now. Good to be moving and making progress. I’ve enjoyed reading this wall this last week and am most certainly going to miss it. But, that is a good lesson in letting go, I guess. One very thrilling share…..I’m experiencing the life of a ladybug in my garden right now. I have a sugar plum tree oozing in sap. Some years, the leaves just get sticky, as they are now. That attracted so many aphids, they’ve actually deformed the leaves.… Read more »

Lara Fernandez

You are right, Deb. There is the last call with Johnny on the 30th, and the last call with both of us before Warrior Camp on the 4th.

Deb~I love your garden. This is amazing. Ladybugs are sooo cool. Thanks for sharing~ Love Sage

omg, I have it all documented and will post on fb. I even took a pupa and a larvae to my healer today to share. The larvae had just attached to the leaf. I thought her daughters would love to watch. In the hour I was there, the larvae had completely covered itself into a pupa……..Nature is SOOOO amazing. She said she sure wished she had taken a photo before. We had no idea it would be so fast. We missed it all. I had just taken a photo in the car, and will forward it to her. Funny how last year I really got into the bees. This year is ladybugs. At this late stage in my life, with these creatures all around my garden all these years, am actually seeing them in a different light. Life is truly just a continual growth. I’ve had years in my old house where I had a wall completely covered with ladybugs, yet I have never seen a pupa or larvae before. I could waste all day simply documenting my garden. If I hadn’t gone out to trim my trees, I would have never seen this even taking place.

Kelly Pickering

Deb, your description of the ladybugs is amazing! I always love seeing the pics of your garden on FB. I used to have one long ago and miss it. I am looking forward to having more time for that again.

Can’t wait to see you at Love Warrior Training! Love and blessings,

I am taking 100% responsibility for my life now. I am fearlessly moving beyond yet another attempt at contact from the man I broke things off with. I blocked him on match, and he somehow was able to get through with another profile to contact me. What a DICK. In the past I would have been far less clear, and far more likely to get into a masculine retaliation mode. I’ve never seen such a disgusting email, full of assumptions, swearing insults and abusive language. I am choosing to look at this as the final clearing of old energy from my system, and I’m intentionally setting up many energy healing sessions around clearing any old energy of unhealthiness that is no longer serving me. I am marveling at how emotionally easy I have been through this “how the hell did this guy get through?!” And at how much fearlessness about exploring and continuing on I have. I really do FEEL like the warrior that I am, loving my life, moving forward, and exploring what is for my highest good and the good of the planet. Love to you all, AND celebrating that I just heard back from a man online… Read more »

WONDER WOMAN!!! So I had this exchange with Johnny (an email about payment for the High Value Woman program) where he tagged on a line about go see Wonder Woman. I mentioned it is WAY out of my comfort zone (after action movies, I almost always have nightmares – so I steer clear!) So Rita and I went together yesterday. Fortunately, there was a power failure part way through, so we chatted about what we saw thus far in the movie that pointed to Love Warriors. It was cool, and put me into that space for the rest of the movie. I wasn’t taken up by the drama (my heart didn’t even pound out of my chest), as I kept on looking for nuggets of Love! Rita and I had tea after and the conversation volleyed back and forth about what we saw. It was awesome! And I didn’t have any nightmares – actually quite the opposite! Thank you Johnny for the extra push to go see the movie and the support you gave me in this. Get this! I want to go see it again!!! (Did you hear that Johnny??) 3

I just saw it this last week as well. Being sick, I missed it when I had it scheduled. It was nice the crowds had died down. The same girlfriend who offered to see it with me followed up and made it happen. So thankful for that.
So nice that the universe provided the power outage for you! I love it!!

Hope to get a chance to see it again before it leaves the theaters. But, it might be one to own. I had already owned the Notebook and the Matrix which J&L recommended. Nice to have them around. I had never watched the Matrix before they suggested. That was for my kids when it came out.

β€œIt’s not about what you deserve. It’s what you believe. And I believe in LOVE.”

YES, YES, YES to all of this, Anne! Johnny and I are thrilled you loved the movie. We plan on going to see it in the theatres as much as we can until it comes out on DVD. Then we plant to buy the super deluxe platinum, behind the scenes extra stuff version of the DVD! We want to flow as much money as we can to this movie (within reason, of course!)…!

Yoga Mat: I’m thinking maybe you, Teresa, would especially know this but any of you might. I have a many years old yoga mat but it certainly doesn’t seem an easy thing to transport across the country. Are they making smaller more transportable versions these days? Also “backpack small enough for one day’s clothing”. I’m a backpacker so I’m confused. I have a really small backpack for day hikes. Probably would fit one day’s clothing. I have a bigger one that would fit one days clothing, fleece jacket, rain jacket or poncho, a large water bottle, snacks, first aid kit. But isn’t big enough for real backpacking. Anyone clearer than I am re the size meant? Rope: I have nylon cord also used for backpacking. Super strong. Does this qualify as rope? Should I be asking Johnny and Lara? Am I to detail oriented? Any shares re this LoveWarrior weekend equipment welcome……… Rachel 1

Kelly Pickering

Rachel, I bought a travel yoga mat. They are smaller and foldable. It will work better for a suitcase, but may not have as much cushioning.

I think they just meant a normal size backback that could carry things we might need out on a day hike.

Not sure on the nylon cord vs. rope. I am just going to buy some rope.

Kelly

Deb Hamlin

I’m practicing not overthinking everything. I have a normal mat, and that’s what I’m bringing. But, I’ll be driving, so don’t need to fit on a plane. I’m just bringing my normal small jansen day pack. I can carry the mat if I need to, but will have a small blanket as requested. I think the small pack is all you will need.
Any hardware store can cut you a piece of rope. I don’t think cord will be enough. I try to think of something that might make a good knot, yet still able to undo. But……I”m a boater :)….so I think like a boater, and my rope looks like it belongs on a boat :).

Rachel, I emailed Johnny about the rope. He said for me to “Trust myself, trust the process.” !!! LOL ~ Love Sage

Oh & I am bringing a kind of bigger day pack to fit it all in, my normal yoga mat since I am driving, the small pad/blanket. I thought about bringing my real backpack, but think it is unnecessary since I doubt we will be out over-nighting it with tent etc. Hope that helps! ~ Love Sage

Rachel Goodwin

Hi All:
Thank you for all the great hints about what you are bringing. I like thinking this through with others! I’ve done quite a bit of thorough thinking about packing in my life. As the single mom of a boy since he was 3 years old I decided that we were going to travel-on a tight budget. I was very proud of finding a book on world travel with children that had all kinds of wonderful hints for how one could do this with just a backpack for me and one for my son. We did this in order to travel by train (his favorite thing) to the midwest. We even had everything to camp in those backpacks! So, I guess I get into the details on this kind of thing…………..

Deb Hamlin
Deb Hamlin

I love visioning you traveling with your son on the train. Something I hope to do one day. I too was a pretty effective packer as we were real travelers when my kids were younger. But some over time, I made it a huge ordeal. I do remember it used to be so simple.

I’ve become an over organizer, and I’m thrilled how laid back I’ve become during this class. Less is more…..I hope to gather everything on the list tomorrow and get it packed. Then hit the road early. I know I already took care of the couple things I didn’t have on hand.

Looking forward to seeing you.

Hi lovelies, I am finally following up with my gratitude share from last weekend. I spent the weekend in Myrtle Beach celebrating a girlfriend’s birthday. She has been a challenge at times, but our time together was fabulous! I amazed myself when we did an obstacle course through the forest canopy. We had to climb rope ladders, walk on wires, tarzan swings, cross open bridges through the trees, and ziplines. And I am afraid of heights! We were staying in another friend’s timeshare and went to the sales pitch. The man who was assigned to me used to run an FBI field office–he had taken an early retirement a few years ago. I ended up buying a timeshare after some waffling and a lot of negotiation. I almost did this a few years ago to make vacations with my daughter easier–all the timeshare problems have been resolved with this particular program. Last time, I backed out because I couldn’t justify spending the money on myself, but this man helped me through it. The process took a very long time, and the conversation turned to spiritual topics (watching family members die, how God had communicated with us through people and events… Read more »

I love this. I have several friends who have timeshares and are happy. I too bought a different version of a time share last year in Mexico. It doesn’t have any fees or dues. Just deal that come here and there. It was at a fraction of the price of a normal time share. I plan to travel in more luxury with my beloved, but envision going more of these kinds of trips with more women. I bought this last November when I stayed at a women’s time share in Mexico. We had such a blast. I hadn’t even met the one gal who owned the time share until that trip. What a fun way to experience different adventures at a good price. I want more experiences like that in my life. I love your bubbly and loving warmth! I”m not at all surprised you passed that onto this man, and that you got into spiritual conversations. I can totally see that happening. Love it!

Kelly Pickering
Kelly Pickering

Yes, my thoughts exactly. I plan the first use of the timeshare for me and my daughter, but also it will be for my man and to share some fun trips with other women. I have traveled with friends before but usually in hotels. The condo arrangement that this has will be perfect!

Just one week to go until Love Warrior training camp!

Love, Kelly

I absolutely love reading your shares. Thank you Emerald sisters for being authentic and vulnerable. Your insights are inspiring and I look forward to seeing you in just a few short weeks. I need to preface this post by disclosing that I haven’t listened to the last call yet. It is scheduled for tomorrow night. I do want to share that I’ve been feeling more and more that Quinn is not my beloved. I do not feel loved, cherished and valued in the way that I need to in a deep meaningful relationship. This is a huge awareness since I have been sitting with these thoughts and feelings for several weeks now. Since I have other stuff to resolve, I’m giving myself some space to be gentle with myself and be thoughtful. In the past, I would just react. Now, I just tell myself that I am the prize and I am in the right place and at the right time. 2

Hi Calina:
You are being very brave and vulnerable to acknowledge to yourself that Quinn may not be the one for you. And all this while working out your divorce situation. So many blessings to you. I feel so proud of you….I think as an older woman who went through a difficult divorce situation and maybe feeling a bit what it must be like for you now……as a woman that’s been there I feel proud of how you are being true to yourself .
with peace and blessings,
