The Power and Beauty of Sisters Coming Together

This weekend I had the one of the most awesome experiences in attending and teaching at an event that supported women. It was a Sisters Healing Sisters event, and they had their annual Spa Day. This is a free event where sisters come out for a couple hours to get pampered and prettied. What I love about the event is that it’s not only about getting the outside pretty and nourished but nurturing your soul too.

The theme this year was on releasing those bags. All of the emotional baggage that we unconsciously carrying around like anger, resentment, depression, abuse, shame and guilt and many other emotions that don’t serve us. Well the whole theme of the one day conference was letting all of that stuff go. The great thing about it was that not only were you to leave your baggage, you also had sisters all around you that were there to support you. They had your back as we say, “I got you.”, as the kids say.

Well when you get 50-70 women or more praying and praising God in one area, and not holding back but going for broke, you have got some dynamite like power working! It was like we were all transported to another place. It felt as if we had left earth and were in some other realm, it was truly amazing! I know I keep using these words like awesome and amazing but those words really don’t adequately describe the experience. In the church we call it “slain in the Spirit”, it really did feel like the old part of us that was carrying all of that baggage died.

This happened in the early part of the conference. After this part of the conference, you could see such a change in the women. Their faces glowed, they looked so beautiful and shiny like new money. They were laughing and smiling and having a good time.

I learned two powerful lessons from this experience. One was that you have to trust the leaders that God put in charge, this included myself. I taught a Yoga class using Gospel music as well as a Zumba class also using Gospel music. This was the first time that I had ever done it this way so I had some concerns, even though I prayed and asked for help and guidance in choosing the music. It turned out my concerns were unfounded, because it was such a hit. There was another part of the conference where I was expecting things to be one way and didn’t understand one of the other leaders directions but decided to do my best and follow along. When I let go and trusted, that’s when all of the amazing experiences began to happen.

The second lesson I learned is that when we come together and support one another, listen to one another and put our own worries and concerns to the side we are still blessed. By taking the focus off of our own problems and worries and just being there for someone else magical things can happen. There is a saying “There is power in prayer.” Well I experienced this power this weekend and my hope and prayer for you is to experience that power also. Write back and let me know if you have already or when you do. I’ll be so happy to hear from you.

  1. Thanks for stopping by!! And yes, when we support each other, we accomplish so much more! I wish I was able to attend this event, as I definitely need some pampering!!! And what a powerful theme–releasing the bags!! I know that can be a challenge for us all, and for me, it has been a long and difficult process. But with faith and the love of my God, family, and friends, I shall overcome! Great post!

      Thank you so much Desiree for commenting. I really love your blog! Maybe you can spear head an event like this in your area. This is done by a local church once a year as an outreach to the community. I think that it is great because it’s a win win situation for everyone. The vendors get exposure and possibly new clients on a mass basis and the church supports its community and can possibly offer them a spiritual home. It is my hope and prayer (stopped to say it for you just now) that it becomes much easier for you and that your life becomes one of ease, joy and true expression. Thanks for stopping by and come again

  2. So great to read your experience, and I can feel it was a powerful experience!
