At first, I was unsure about going into this Gateway Weekend. This was my first time going to anything like this and I was unsure of what may happen and who I may meet there. I always jump to negative feelings first, because that’s my way of dealing with new situations, even when it’s a positive one. I arrived and at first, was still hesitant, but it felt comforting to be around Dragonfly and so many positive energies of women. Once we began talking and connecting, it felt peaceful and satisfying. I blossomed. I found things about myself that I didn’t want to face. I never focus on me, I’m the kind of person that would put someone else before me. I am truly grateful for this weekend for giving me that confidence to learn more about myself and to face those things. It’s helped me to think about myself is not a selfish way but a sensual way. I should love myself, it’s not wrong or shameful. I never believed this truly until being here this weekend. By accepting that I am in the way of what I want in life, I can move forward.
The biggest thing I took away from this weekend is that crying is okay. I’ve always been told, “don’t cry, you must be strong”, when I’ve been strong the whole time, just aggressively tearing up as well. It’s okay to cry and expel that from yourself.It makes room for happiness to fill that void! I look forward to another Gateway weekend. I enjoyed feeling my inner goddess strength and allowing myself to feel free. My spirit was free. I was left wanting more and I can’t wait to attend more sessions of Dragonflies! Her aura and soothing voice sent me to another dimension.
I recommended this as soon as I left the first night. Other women, I knew that would benefit from this experience and allow themselves to be free. I can’t wait to continue this spiritual journey on connecting with my inner goddess.
