I flew to Toronto with my friend Claire Schingh-Sauriol for the “I Can Do It” conferences. For Claire, it was memorable! On top of experiencing this special event, it was her first plane trip. Although she was nervous prior to the flight, she absolutely loved it and is now ready to do it again.

“I Can Do It” is a motivational weekend with world-renowned speakers. Our Saturday session began with a tribute to my very special guru, author and motivational speaker, Wayne Dyer who passed away on the 29th of August 2015. I attended three of his conferences and keep his autograph in my wallet and in the “Look Within” 2012 notebook. I own many of his books and CDs. Wayne Dyer believed (as did Carlos Castenada) that in the universe there is a force called intention… a field of energy that everyone can tap into. And from that, we must be willing to change our concept of ourselves and let go of limits that hold us back. The tribute reminded me that our true legacy has nothing to do with money but rather how we lived our lives and influenced people in a positive way. Wayne Dyer said: “Trust yourself! Don’t allow other people to tell you what is possible or impossible. Want more for others than you want for yourself.”

Our first speaker was Anita Moorjani, author of “Dying to be me”. In February of 2006, Anita fell into a deep coma after fighting lymphoma cancer for five years. While Anita’s body was dying, her consciousness expanded, giving her access to another dimension. Miraculously, she survived… her cancer completely cured in a short time. Since her near-death experience, she has shared the information that transformed her life and gave her a new purpose. She admitted she used to obsess about cancer and tried to avoid it. But, as Wayne Dyer would say, “What you think about expands.” and the very thing Anita feared happened. In the process, she learned to follow her joy, surround herself with people she loves, to love herself and allow herself to be who she was meant to be.

For the other speakers, I will share nuggets of wisdom I brought back with me because I would need pages to expand on the advice given. Joe Dispenza specializes in neuroscience and the human brain function. He warned that stress can make you sick, so in such instances, you need to disconnect with your environment using music or meditation. This creates coherence and helps you become more loving, more mindful and caring. In order to create synchronicity, he advised us to ask the question “What is the greatest expression of myself I can be today?”

Nick Ortner, CEO of the Tapping Solution, provided insight into “tapping” as a way to help people improve their health, financial situation and build a stress-free life. I have been practicing “tapping” and love it. You might want to look into it.

Brendan Burchard gave us five easy steps to build our confidence. My favourite message: “Believe in your ability to figure things out!” Mastin Kipp talked about the two types of fear: irrational and necessary fear. “Unless you are in mortal danger, fear is a compass showing you where to go.”

Gregg Braden bridged science and spirituality while presenting wonderful insights on the function of heart and brain neurons. Gregg advises that the better we know ourselves, the better we can thrive in life’s extremes. The way we answer “Who am I?” colours everything in our life.

Cheryl Richardson and Dr. Christiane Northrup offered ways of living in the moment while improving our quality of life. Christiane Northrup believes in aging gracefully while improving our health, our looks, our sexual relationships and our pleasure in living life. She believes good health and aging well has less to do with genetics but more with our beliefs and attitudes. Our age has nothing to do with the date on our birth certificate. “Caring for yourself isn’t self-indulgence; it’s self-preservation.”

Blessings! Take care!
