My Magical Journey to Boulder
It all started with a moldavite… a textured transparent meteorite from 14 million years ago. If you don’t know anything about moldavites, they are synonymous with speeding up change in your life for the better. Be careful when you buy one because life will become quite accelerated as you’ll see! After only having the moldavite in my posession for 1 hour, an intuitive Naturopath friend called and told me, “I hate to tell you this, but I think you’re moving somewhere COLD. I see mountains and snow.” This was the fourth time I’d heard I’d be moving in the prior six months so I took note. She knew I was SO happy finally being in Granbury after having lived in cold places for many years. But I knew instantly where this place was and why I was going. It was Boulder, Colorado. The reason? If you were to ask me what the most exciting thing I could possibly think of doing (at this time), I would tell you it would be to be a Facilitator for Bentinho Massaro. Afterall, I have pretty much already been teaching his teachings to my clients for some time with great results.
It was like a line of dominoes had been tipped over to start a chain reaction of the most amazing synchronistic events you could ever imagine. I got more confirmation on this than I’ve ever gotten on anything else in my life. It was like going into the wardrobe in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. It was so exciting, I had a number of friends calling frequently to see what the latest signs were… and I was jotting it all down as I went. It was all happening so fast, however, a day would feel like a week and I’d barely be able to remember all that happened!
The Summary of larger events (listing the smaller signs would be too long for this post):
Talked to Ryan Brown, Bentinho’s current and only official Facilitator, before all this happened. As things were unfolding, I kept him apprised. He agreed to share my resume with Bentinho after hearing what had been going on. I also had spoken with Ayla (although not telling her the whole story) and she had also agreed to share my information with Bentinho. Another of his dedicated volunteers also said she’d like to get me involved at least at a volunteer level if nothing else for now.
Bentinho’s higher self
(he would say “my representation of him”) was coming to me much like a spirit. He taught and trained me, made me laugh, made fun of me, and helped me to let go of any attachments before my move. He stood in my kitchen and asked if I was ready to let go of my ex husband. I answered, “Well, I’ll always love him, but yes”.
That night, I was intuitively prompted to take a red jasper and black tourmaline to bed with me. I was a little curious because the red jasper is for physical protection and the black tourmaline is for negativity. I wondered why on Earth I would need that in my sleep? Sure enough, in the wee hours of the morning, my cat, Neo, bit my face! We had an ongoing issue with his wanting outside. Since my neighbors hated cats, and for numerous other reasons, I wouldn’t let him out unless I had him on a leash. I told him I was planning on building him a cat enclosure someday when I have a house again, but he wanted freedom to run and play in the grass freely. I felt terrible for him. So, after the bite, I just started crying on my bed. Bentinho flopped on the bed beside me and asked what happened. I told him, “Neo bit me!” Then he asked if I wanted to know what this was really about. Bracing myself, I said, “yes”. He said, “You’re holding him against his will. Animals have free will too.” The hardest 3 days ensued attempting to come to peace with getting rid of him. I loved him SO much! It took about a month to find him a place, but I was able to find the most perfect home I could have ever imagined. I’m was happy for him and his new parents. They adored him! I realized later, too, that Neo was a link to my ex husband… he was like our kid. Let go #1.
After a few days of me mourning the loss of Neo, a past boyfriend, Morris, who died a couple years after we broke up, at the age of 27 (we were about 12 years apart in age), was channeled through the above referenced friend while we were going to create a video for her Youtube channel. He first confirmed some private, confidential information that was just between my ex husband and I. I was astonished at the accuracy. It was his personality, his humor, and exactly what he’d say. Then he confirmed some private information about our own relationship and explained why things happened the way they did. We had a great, healing talk. Then he proceeded to tell me some things about my ex husband that allowed me to completely let go of any remnants of attachment that remained. "Mo" also assured me he was going to help me meet a guy in Boulder who would be worthy of me. The thing you don’ t know is Morris is the guy I was dating before I decided to start dating my ex husband, Nate. At the time, when he was alive, he thought my ex had more to offer me so he let me go regretting it terribly and never did tell me he loved me (this has also been confirmed from a dear friend who heard him telling this story in a bar – not realizing at the time I was the Amy he was pining over or he’d have done something about it). It was beautiful justice that he was the one who ultimately helped me let “the man who took me away” go and could be my hero helping me start anew. This was Morris’s opportunity to show his love after all these years and be there for me in the most romantic way you could ever imagine (he figured out a way to send me amazing messages and answers to questions I’d ask him through my friends – kinda like Sam did in “Ghost” singing “99 Bottles of Beer”). He now serves as a guardian angel watching over me whenever I drive since he died in a car accident. Ex hubby – Let go #2.
My neighbor started to have an issue with me making too much noise after three months of living there and never having had this come up. He said he could hear my cat running up and down the hallway (Neo was quite a character!). My apartment I deemed as “perfect” was starting to not feel like the safe situation I thought it was anymore. My grip on it was loosening the more the guy banged on my floor and turned his volume on his TV up to an obnoxious volume. Another neighbor warned me he was bi-polar and was probably just targeting me. My awesome apartment in the perfect place to live – Let go #3.
I had a lovely woman on Craigslist respond to me with an amazing deal on a room for rent close to Boulder (Hygiene). She began sending me pictures of the view, the dogs and cat (who were precious), the horses, and was expressing her excitement at me coming and meeting her and her family. She got me here with her promise of a great life!
After Ayla and Ryan both said Bentinho’s answer was, “no”, there was not a need for me and my background was irrelevant for what they needed (although I felt I’d be perfect!), I had to trust my path and destiny. This all was happening just as I was packing my things! Holding onto what the end result should look like and how it all should go – Let go #4.
My business had just started to take off, but I took that as a sign that it could and would also take off in Boulder. My business was booming, but I had to follow my dreams and trust the universe would have my back in doing so – Let go #5.
I loaned a friend some money and, instead of paying me back, she fled. I had to decide to have faith the money would come back to me another way – Let go #6.
An effortless Drive
The drive was enjoyable and flew by like I was in a time warp. Normally, on a drive like this, I get very tired and am in a lot of pain. I had neither happen on this trip. It just felt like the universe wanted to hurry me along. Neo’s new mom also called and shared some special moments they’ve had since he was adopted into his new family. It was very sweet.
“The Pee House” (I’ve affectionately referred to it as)
Once I had arrived in Boulder at this wonderful place I was looking forward to staying at, it smelled like urine very strongly. I had a powerful air purifier so thought it might help although I’d have to go to Denver to get it from my friend the next day. I tried to sleep that night, but the smell made it under the door and right through the sheets I held tightly over my mouth and nose. The next day, only having slept 3 hours, I went to get the air purifier then had a gut check. I have been working so hard, for months, to get to optimal health. Did I really want to subject myself to that acid in my lungs? I was nervous to break the news because I knew she expected her payment (and needed it to pay for her dog’s surgery). I stated the whole way there, the next day, “Thank you that my breaking the news went SO well.” And it did. When I told her I wouldn’t be moving in, all she said was, “Ok. I kinda figured.” and refused to acknowledge the smell although she’d opened all the windows in anticipation of my return. But she was nice and I paid her for the night's stay.
“Home Sweet Home”
Next, I had to overcome my “stage two” challenge of having to find a place to live. My friend in Denver said I could stay two more days until her son came home (she and I had an amazing talk while staying there as well – another “meant to be”). Although, it didn’t seem true in my reality, I kept praying, “Thank you SO much for all the options! I am so completely supported in all ways and always.” and I would bask in that feeling. By the end of the first day, I had 3 options. By the last day, at the last minute, I had 6 options! The first option was a sweet couple with a large home and an extra room. Their daughter had spotted my ad on Bentinho’s local community page and urged her mom to private message me on Facebook. When I arrived, we instantly clicked. I loved the place, it was clean, and I had been wanting to feel like a part of a family and she offered just that. In fact, she asked me to please join in on breakfasts, lunches, and dinners as often as possible! She was excited to hear my story and gave me a discount because I was a Bentinho believer and could enrich her household in this way. They have 8 children (3 that live at home) so we have become one big happy family. As it turns out, this family knows Bentinho, his staff, and many of his friends so it was a natural fit for me at this time along my journey.
Within only a week of me living here in Boulder, Bentinho announced that he would welcome anyone locally to come join him for dinner one night. I immediately reserved a table near him as instructed in the post. However, I noticed no one else was saying they’d be there except one person who already knew him. I grew nervous imagining that I would show up and would be ignored sitting at a table by myself (again, stage two coming up for healing). But then I redirected my focus pouring my heart into a feeling of oneness and knowing they would probably be just as happy to finally meet me as well. Sure enough, we all gathered in the lobby, hugged, and proceeded to get to know each other throughout the course of the evening and had a wonderful time. They felt like family… it was more like a reunion than us meeting.
“My Tell-All Moment with Bentinho”
Another week had gone by and he offered to meet some locals at the venue for his upcoming birthday retreat. I was enjoying the ambiance and people watching from a state of presence when Bentinho suddenly appeared beside me. I was able to share this journey with him, as odd as it may have seemed to him, and told him I’d basically come all this way for him and am here for him if or when he should need me. He asked me a couple questions then excused himself.
“Bentinho Answers a longstanding Question”
At the retreat I was able to go up and ask Bentinho about an experience I had of enlightenment many years ago and how to get that experience back. We had a great interaction and even laughed together about how cute Eckhart Tolle is. I really enjoyed his retreat and made lots of wonderful friends.
This article wouldn’t be complete without mentioning my friend, Louis. Just before this all happened, he posted an impactful post on Bentinho’s page he became known for. From then on out, the Bentinho community would refer to him as “the dentist”. I replied to his post and he messaged me. We messaged each other back and forth for a bit before both concluding we’re going to Boulder – each from completely different parts of the world – each feeling the pull. We chatted every so often supporting each other through the ups and downs one goes through in making such a leap. As fate would have it, he was staying at another home in Boulder and suddenly found himself needing another housing option. I put him in touch with Joyce and he came to stay with us having a great time with Joyce’s kids and going to visit Ben and his friends/team frequently.
There really isn’t one – ha! Because you never know where the breadcrumbs are going to lead. All I know is my life path has led me to Boulder and and I’m ready for whatever awaits. The first holistic therapies fair I went to was a huge success, I’ve already had consultations, have put flyers up all over town, I went to an energizing retreat on harnessing my feminine presence (and was told by many they felt I’d be a powerful teacher someday who will inspire many), I got a great part time job I enjoy immensely, AND the synchronicities continue (and Mo still throws in surprises to let me know he’s thinking about me). We’ll just have to see what the universe has in store. I just know it’ll be pretty damn exciting with the way things have been going! I’ve learned to expect miracles every day. This is the potential for all of us. There’s nothing special about me except that I’m listening and taking action on my spirit’s promptings.
My advice? Align yourself with positivity, get a moldavite, and hang on! Please feel free to leave a comment below with any questions or feedback. Namaste.
MOLDAVITE = This mysterious green talisman is star-born, formed from nature's violent meteoric impact with Mother Earth. Etched by force and flame as it fell from the heavens Moldavite returned to the earth's surface transformed, a glass of amazing delicacy and grace ready to serve humankind. Moldavite is a talisman sent to Earth for spiritual awakening, transformation and evolutionary growth. Moldavite is a member of the Tektite group of natural glasses formed from interplanetary collisions. From the Greek word tektos, meaning "molten," Tektites are glassy mixtures of silicon dioxide, aluminum oxide and other metal oxides with an amorphous crystal structure. This beautiful stone is rare, found only in Czechoslovakia, and is named for the area in which it is found, near the Moldau River (called the Vltava in Czech).
Moldavite is good for counteracting cynicism, eases away doubts, even when the cause is unknown, and calms worries about money by providing solutions not previously considered. Carrying or wearing Moldavite in jewelry allows its energies to remain in one's vibrational field throughout the day strengthening its effects and increasing the incidents of beneficial synchronicities in daily life. Because of Moldavite's intense vibration, some may experience light-headedness or a lack of grounding and may need to acclimate themselves gradually to wearing it. Placed on the heart, Moldavite uncovers the reasons and purpose for why one is here. Moldavite amplifies the effects of other stones it is next to.
Moldavite is useful as a tool for diagnosis, illuminating the cause and source of an imbalance or disease, and then supports the releasing and healing process. Its high vibrational energy helps re-establish the blocked areas, encouraging the cells to return to their original state of perfection. A rejuvenating stone, Moldavite stimulates personal fulfillment and slows down the aging process. It aids in memory retention and protects against mental degeneration. It may help balance disturbances in the electrical impulses of the brain, and is supportive for hard to treat progressive illnesses. It is an excellent stimulant for treating gout, and like many green stones is good for the eyes. Moldavite is a stone of the heart, reaching into the deepest inner self and bringing to the surface that which one most needs to recognize, honor, integrate or release. Its resonance brings the heart into union with the mind, allowing them to work together in partnership.
