The expanded story...
Over many years, the Divine answered my Call with daily infusions of Cosmic Energy that brought me into Vertical Alignment with my Soul and the natural Energy flow of Heaven and Earth. These Alignments released my pain and connected me with my Higher Intelligence and Joy. However, I could not hold this Alignment in the fire of my life. With the conditioning of my horizontal trance, I needed Divine Intervention to maintain the Freedom of this Aligned state. My Call for this help was again answered.
The expanded story...
Although I was fearful about my physical world falling apart, ironically, I had no fear of surrendering completely to the Divine on that Oak Tree as I opened and released my life's pain and burdens to the Tree in unexplainable Trust. My surrender took me out of my "trance mania" for 15 minutes and returned me to my horizontal everyday world free of pain and with a much more expansive Soul perspective.
Each day, in those hills, I miraculously received total relief from my pain and was recharged with hope and energy to carry me through another day in my tumultuous world. It took several years for me to realize that I was receiving Divine Energy that was freeing me from my horizontal trance and bringing me into Vertical Alignment with my Soul's Inner Power and Wisdom.
This phenomenon of what happened on those daily hikes was pure alchemy to me as I did not DO anything to make this happen. For the first time in my life, I was humble and open to receive help. This was a true contradiction for the "superwoman" persona that was identified with doing everything herself.
While these daily infusions of Energy allowed me to taste the Magic of this Vertical Soul Alignment, I was unable to maintain this Alignment. Once again I called to the Divine for the ability to abide in this Aligned state, as opposed to experiencing it only a few minutes in my day.
Over the next many years I received the Gift of what I now call Diamond Alignment... the Sacred Tool that Connects and Aligns me with the Divine or what I call my Diamond Self Within... anytime... anywhere.
