WORDS OF WISDOM FROM MARIANNE WILIAMSON

Alexandria Joy - Tuesday, December 29, 2015
Each year I take time out during this break to reflect on the year that was and to pen my Annual Gratitude Letter - in my 2015 letter I wrote how on New Year's Even 2014 I read Oprah Winfrey's book What I know for sure that had been loaned to me by a dear friend Tracy. The book truly set the tone for me for the coming year and little did I know at the time that I would round off 2015 with a bus trip to see Oprah live in Sydney on 12 December 2015 with 10 of my Leading Ladies clients and friends organised by the very same friend Tracy. 

What an exquisite way to top and tail the year!

The middle of 2015 was also a peak or highlight for me as I had the amazing experience of travelling with my great friend Mel to Sir Richard Branson's private island Necker. While there we were joined by none other than spiritual teacher of our time - Marianne Williamson.

My experience of and interactions with Marianne had a surprising and profound impact on me personally as well as on the way we now operate at UQ Power. In this week's episode of UQTV I will share some of the wonderful insights I gained from time with this amazing leader. I hope you find her wisdom to provide you with some tasty food for thought at this time of the year as well.

 


PS - If you want to get a glimpse of the power of this woman then check out this video of her speaking recently on women and religion at the Parliament of World's Religions in Salt Lake City Utah - I have some footage I took of her speaking on Necker however the Caribbean breeze and 100 flamingos in the background make for challenging audio, plus I wanted to experience her in person not through an iPhone ;-)

I look forward to being of service and sharing more with you all on the other side in 2016!

With respect

Dear Heidi,

Thank you for sharing your wonderful trips, lessons, letters, and tip bits from a vast amount of creative people whom many of us may normally not get the opportunity to meet.

I too particularly found Marrianne Williamson interesting as she was able to open up and divert the course of my ideologies. Often we hear 'good news' but it is still much easier to stay with our original and cemented home views.

An aspect of being creative is being fluid in your own thoughts and open to others thoughts. I love it when I read, hear, see, or experience a new wisdom.

Again, thank you for a wonderful sharing program.

Sincerely,

Sophie Mill

Dear Sophie
Thank you for your generous comments - I agree it is when we learn to disentangle ourselves and become untethered that we learn the most
