I woke up feeling highly refreshed and wanting to connect with even more people on Day 2. If there was any doubt as to what the workshop was about, I just had to look at the cover of any one of the handouts – they all had a massive Truth-Love-Power triangle on them. The experience is quite different from reading Steve’s blog – only now do I realize the stark contrast between sitting at a computer screen reading at home, and attending a live workshop with 100+ like-minded souls. If you’ve been having trouble taking action or feeling stuck, come to a workshop. Reading an article might give you some ideas, but a workshop is like getting strapped into a jet-pack.
Day 2 was about applying each of the 7 principles to different areas – Career, Finances, Health, Skills and Daily Habits. Most of the written exercises focused on improving our alignment with each of the 7 principles in each area. Steve generally spoke about an area for 45 minutes and on a few occasions, proceeded to call for a volunteer to work with on stage. One of them was Alexandra, who has posted her experience on the Facebook group.
After the work on stage, we would break up into small groups and do an exercise together, often the same exercise already done on stage. I was honored that Shauna, a fellow Canadian, approached me during the Career exercise and asked to work with me because she wanted to connect.
What was very enlightening for me was to see how my misalignment with some of the principles, especially love, power, courage and authority, wasn’t isolated to one or two area – in fact, it was pervasive in nearly ALL of the areas. It even extended into health, an area where I thought I was doing pretty well.
At lunch, I raced off to the Go Raw Café with a native Las Vegan, and as many others who would fit into his car – we had 6 in the car. Rachelle, another fellow Canadian, sat in my lap
It felt great to connect with so many people who had been strangers just a couple days earlier.
Later that afternoon, I organized a group to see the show Penn & Teller, while simultaneously trying to get another group together to have dinner at the Red Velvet Café. I was stressing out when I realized I couldn’t get back to the strip in time to see the show, so I had to choose from one or the other. Glen, a new friend I made at the workshop, wanted to connect over dinner, and I wanted to talk to him too. At the end, I closed my eyes and asked for help from my guides. They beamed me the signal that I’d be happier going out for dinner, so I wound up going with the Red Velvet group – only we didn’t go to Red Velvet, we went back to Go Raw to join the even bigger group heading there. We wound up hiring a limo to take us, and at one point we were talking about VitaMix blenders. I explained how once my (now ex-) boyfriend came over and discovered the “plunger” that came with the blender sitting on my counter. He thought it was a butt plug I bought from the sex toy store
After dinner, we headed back to the strip. Tom invited me to hang out at the Stratosphere Tower with a few others – they turned out to be Erica.biz, Lance and Chris. Erica drove us up the strip in her rental car, giving us a little guided tour along the way. We took the elevator up the Stratosphere Tower for a view of the city. Las Vegas looks amazing at night – so bright, so flat, so big! Tom and I wound up going on the ride where you’re hanging on an arm off the top of the Tower, 867 feet above the ground, spinning around in circles in your seat
Yay for courage
