“Sharing the very deep heartfelt soul connections as we joined as One at the end of our last training session, in the quiet of the moment came such powerful and true unconditional LOVE, my heart swelled – I have come home.”
Each of the Peers training to hold safe spaces for people going through a difficult spiritual emergence process were asked:
“What does being part of the Emerging Kind project mean to you?
Today we introduce you to Jenny from Saltburn, UK:
Ever since first hearing in October 2016 of Katie and her desire to bring together those amongst us who are ‘#EmergingProud out of our Spiritual Closets’ I have been filled the most amazing heartfelt, passionate buzz! Though Katie quietly plodded away to make what she felt was to be her ‘little’ film to contribute in an awareness-raising campaign to help normalise spirituality in mental health and spiritually transformative experiences in society, I sensed the enormity of this campaign, inherently knowing that this was HUGE!
I cannot express my love and gratitude enough to Katie and to all who have and are still are bravely #EmergingProud to make this change happen Worldwide. I also emerged proud with a snippet of an experience of dropping body to ‘go home’. Since the launching of her film on 12 May 2017 much interest and research is now on-going. With Katie’s dedication, and now the amazing sponsorship from Hugh Callacher, Founder of The Missing Kind charity she has secured funding for the Emerging Kind project enabling training to be provided for Peer Support Facilitators for Spiritually Transformative Experiences (STE’s) across the UK, soon to be Intercontinental.
Our experiences come in all sorts of ‘guises’, all unique, valid and very real. Since being part of this whole experience, I realise that all my life I have been having STE’s as a normal part of who I inherently am, only now realising these to be my ‘human be-ing’ experiences.
All my life I have just ‘fallen’ into things in what appears to be an upside down, back to front way of ‘be-ing’, i.e. my soul and spirit already ‘know’ yet now I realise that I have to learn in the ‘human’ to be able to converse with and help others to understand. Relationships, love, friendship, work…now I realise that what I inherently know in going with the flow in my life IS soul and spirit living, living from the heart. Challenging life experiences happen for me to learn and evolve if I allow myself to fall into others ‘human’ traps of ‘fear’ (false evidence appearing real) rather than following my own truth in being my authentic self.
I feel honoured and deeply grateful to have been accepted into The Emerging Kind group to train as a peer support facilitator as I have always known that we are all here to help each other, and what better than to help support others going through similar spiritual experiences. It is so important to have a safe space to share our experiences, a space where we feel validated and cared for, among others who resonate with empathy and compassion of our soul and spirit.
Sharing the very deep heartfelt soul connections as we joined as One at the end of our last training session, in the quiet of the moment came such powerful and true unconditional LOVE, my heart swelled – I have come home.
We’ll be introducing you to more of the Peers over the coming weeks, as well as sharing updates on the project; stay tuned!
