Of all the impressive people who impacted my life last weekend at Nathalie Lussier’s Off the Charts event, the person who rocked my world the most was Laura Hames Franklin.
I’ve been learning about about personal growth and healing for years, and I’ve gotten excited about many methods and modalities. I feel fortunate to be alive at a time where there are so many different techniques and approaches to feeling better and connecting with universal truth and guidance.
But when I encountered Laura’s work, I felt electrified like never before. Like someone had finally presented me with the ANSWER, in all caps.
And the coolest part about that ANSWER? It’s been inside me all along.
It’s not a novel concept to me, the idea that the wisdom is within. Intellectually, I’ve known it a long time, and to a good extent I’ve also felt it emotionally and physically. Processes like Inner Bonding, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), and especially yoga, to list a few examples, have helped me get in touch with my body and spirit simultaneously.
Yet nothing has been as simple as what Laura taught me on Saturday–how to balance the left and right brain with some astonishingly easy and effective tapping. And nothing has felt as instantly transformative as what she guided me through on Sunday, and then again on Monday and Saturday when I attended her free webinars.
Basically, Laura teaches that every atom in the universe is connected (science shows this), and that we humans have the ability to tune in to universal intelligence if we’re so inclined. And that when we let our bodies feel and function as they’re meant to, possibilities vastly expand.
Laura’s exceptional scientific and anatomical knowledge combined with her well honed intuition enable her to help others access the wisdom that always exists in what she calls our “innernet.”
One way she does this is through an online experience she calls Wholly Shift. The program, eight real-time sessions over the course of four weeks, is called Wholly Shift because, well, it shifts you, wholly.
I have already been so immediately affected and inspired by what I’ve learned from Laura that I took the plunge and applied for a scholarship to attend the next Wholly Shift program, which starts tomorrow.
It wasn’t easy for me to ask for the scholarship. In fact, yesterday morning I decided not to. I was a bit intimidated by the requirements–I’d never, ever made or edited a video before, much less one of myself asking for aid, and certainly not one to post online for the world to see.
Also, though I was dismayed to notice it, I wasn’t quite sure I had the “willingness to boldly share this information with [my] community,” which was something she was specifically looking for.
The thing about Laura’s work is that it’s not for everyone, and while I KNOW it is for ME, I worried that I’d seem wacko or “out there” if I enthusiastically promoted her to my community at large, which surely includes people who aren’t ready for or interested in what she offers.
But you know what? Her work is AMAZING. And I want to be a part of it. And, because I somehow surpassed my doubts and fears, and somehow managed to create, post, and promote the heck out of my application, I gave myself the best chance possible to get what I want. That feels good no matter what—but then, tonight I found out that I WON!
And you know what else? One of my mom’s friends saw my video and was inspired to check out Laura’s work. That couldn’t have happened if I’d let my insecurities rule. So, yeah, I’m super psyched to start Wholly Shift tomorrow—and I intend to keep on sharing.
