Hey there Lovelies!
Yesterday, I had the immense pleasure of trying something very new, and attending the Universal Light Mind, Body, Spirit Expo here in Columbus, OH. It was a wonderful experience for me, and one that I am excited to share a little more about with you!
The Expo is a two day immersion into all things spiritual and healing – there were experts in every type of existential healing and growth process that you could possibly imagine present. I was immediately overwhelmed and excited by being there – the energy of the expo room was palpable!
I visited many different stations and tables, where there were people waiting to bless me with their gifts. Healing shamans, psychics, and more were available. I experienced my first reiki session, had a tutorial on the power of crystals and gems (and even picked up a few for myself!), and purchased a Himalayan pink salt lamp. It was an experience that was bizarre and wonderful all at once!
The most striking thing that I took away from yesterday’s experience, however, was how comfortable everyone was simply walking in their respective truths. There were people who wholeheartedly believe in the spiritual/mystical and embraced it with open arms, and there were people (like me) who were curiously skeptical, but were just happy to be in the presence of such good vibes. Regardless of where anyone fell on that spectrum, though, there was no shortage of love and acceptance within the space for themselves and for each other.
More and more these days, I find myself seeking out spaces where authenticity is valued above everything else. There’s an incomparable amount of peace that comes with being your true self without hesitation or limitation. Doing so around a group of people who are happy to accept you without judgement or reservation (or even needing to know you at all) is also incredibly liberating. It was a grounding experience for me at a point in my life where I find that I have less and less room for things that worry me or otherwise disturb my peace.
All told, this was a great experience for me, and I am happy to have had the opportunity to meet and commune with these special people. It was an adventure in self-discovery that I’m not likely to forget any time soon.
