Hope all is well!
This has been an adventure, both personally and physically. I now have an idea what documentary filmmaking is all about. I realized after day three that I was the producer, director, interviewer, sound person, lighting person, gofer, gaffer, driver, bell-hop, and animal wrangler!!! Whew!!
Now after settling into wearing many different hats, and having a few days in Sedona to catch up with myself. I can reflect on what has happened so far my journey has taken me to Needles, CA, The Grand Canyon, Flagstaff, AZ and now Sedona, NM. I will leave Sedona today, August 19, and travel to Albuquerque, NM, Roswell, NM and then into Austin TX.
I have interviewed some fascinating people along the way -- a couple that runs an RV campsite, a housekeeper, a Grand Canyon helicopter pilot, a filmmaker who started the film festival in Flagstaff, a medical intuitive, an anthropologist, who has been traveling the world for the last 18 years photographing sacred sites, a writer, a world renown sound therapist, and finally an artist, who is working on a series of paintings with the theme being the empowerment of women.
In every single person so far that I have spoken to there has been a common theme-- they all have had an intuitive thought or feeling in following there line of work, and they acted on it. Some acted on it with complete abandon and others may have felt fearful but acted on it anyway.
We have to be willing to take a risk, walk forward (even if you are shivering in your boots), not listen to other peoples fears, and have tons of faith!! The key is to move foreward no matter what.
So, I present these questions to you:
1) What would you do if you absolutely knew you could not fail?I've realized, that when I stay in the moment, I really get the direction I am suppose to go in next. When I plan too far ahead of myself I get overwhelmed. If I do what is put in front of me and I stay open to change, the signs of what I need to do next are revealed.
Last night when I interviewed the Anthropologist he said to me "Monique, you can make plans, but you must be open to and be guided by spirit to where you should go next." He could not have been more right. I was suppose to leave Sedona at noon on Saturday and I am still here -- it is now Monday! God has a plan and God knows who I should speak with next.
At this point I don't know when I will be back in Los Angeles. I may be back in a couple of weeks or it may not be until the end of September. I really get that this is God's journey. He is my tour guide.
When I interviewed the medical intuitive on Saturday night, she wanted to do a reading for me and of course I jumped at the chance. She was amazing. She said so many wonderful thing. The two things that have really stuck with me are:
1) Incorporate ALL that I do on this journey. I said what do you mean by that? She said, "I feel like you have been, limiting yourself." I thought about it for a minute -- I have insisted that this trip be about the documentary only, not what I do for a living as a Business Intuitive. I did not want to use that business side of me on this trip. She said, "I needed to allow all the gifts that God had given me to come through me. It will help others and it will further my trip in a direction that I had not imagined".I present to you another question:
What dream or thought did you have as a kid that somehow got quieted?
For example, I use to watch Barbara Walters on the morning news. I must have been about 8. I loved Barbara Walters and wanted to be like her. I re-remembered this the other day when I was interviewing someone.
I'd better get packing and get on my way to Albuquerque!!
