Cancer, in whatever form it takes, gives us choices on how we live our lives! For me, cancer was a wake-up call that life is precious, and that it was up to me to decide what I would choose to do.
I had no idea how my life was going to change after attending my Healing Odyssey Retreat #15. One counselor had said to me ‘your life is going to change’ and she was right. I was on such a natural high for months after my 1st retreat, and I continued on as a counselor at Healing Odyssey for many years.
Health Odyssey is MAGIC. Just the name Healing Odyssey allows its participants to imagine all sorts of adventures. Healing Odyssey was my coming home! I had found where my passion was! What wonderful joys I received after my HO #15 retreat experience.
The experience allowed me to achieve goals. My life became centered and feelings were easy to recognize. Old wounds were coming to the surface to heal, and the healing was a miracle in itself. These lessons were a grand concert that was playing in my head, living in my heart and healing my body. Like a butterfly going through its stages, I was going home. I was ready to receive the bounties that life had in store for me.
I did not know realize that my drive up the mountain to my Healing Odyssey Retreat would have begun the journey of healing that would change my life with such a powerful impact. At the time I thought I had finished with cancer, but I found out I was at the beginning of my journey…an incredible journey that opened my hear up to love and acceptance.
Scars that were scaring me emotionally were now fading into old stories that were part of the passages of my life, and I started allowing love back in my life in forms I never imagined. My Healing Odyssey experience was my awakening into a higher level in seeing exactly who I was and how I could make a difference!
Thank you to all of the wonderful donors and special ladies I now have as friends.
God blessed me! — Dayna M., HO#15
