1) What did you expect from your Quest Personal 3 day 3 night Journey with G and C in Canmore Canada, aka ” Heaven on Earth”
I didn’t have too many expectations about the Journey, frankly. Had heard anecdotes about people having major breakthroughs in their ability to love and be truthful, but beyond that I tried to stay out of the mind and just open to the experience of being with Catherina and Gerry in an awesome piece of Nature.
2) How “different” was your Quest personal. 3 day, 3 night journey with G and C?
Being the only participant for three days was definitely “different”. The care G and C put into taking care of my every need, was certainly beyond the norm, and a very welcome surprise! Several times I had to stuff the impulse to want to get up and help wash dishes; but was reminded repeatedly that this was my opportunity to really practice self-love.
3) What specifically have your learnt/remembered within your Quest personal 3 day 3 night journey, with G and C?
So many things stick out prominently in my memory and in the new Self that I am becoming:
The lovely heart jigsaw card: “I Complete Me” was so symbolic and beautifully integrated to the “curriculum” that was always in the background of the process, but never over-dominant. Catherina was clearly in the moment with me, following her intuition and inner guidance at every step. I felt I was clearly the center of everything that happened, that it was all for me. This was powerful and gave me deep gratitude.
That at the core of who I am is a being of Love. That is the truth of who I am. I have felt that in my mind, and lived it many times in my heart, for close to 30 years. But a new level of awakening to this truth happened for me during my Journey.
That there are many energies within me from past relationships and especially limiting thoughts and beliefs, that need clearing and replacing with limitless beliefs. This was especially profound for me. Catherina is masterful in helping you see how the patterns playing out in personal and business relationships are such clear mirrors of aspects of our own ego. These are not bad, nor should they be judged. In fact, the opposite. They need love, deeply. The different meditations and rituals we did tremendously reinforced the insights she helped me find.
It also became clearer and clearer that a strong pattern in me remains of failing to accept my own feelings, and therefore not to express them at times in appropriate ways. The three word meme, Accept/Express/Love is a beautifully simple way for me to remember this profound truth.
The exercise that led to my statement was extremely powerful:
“I now live from the Truth of who I am, the Love that I am. All that I am meant to have, all that my heart truly desires, is being given to me.”
Having a recording of that unique moment, and remembering the dynamic between my ego and my Soul that led to my powerful declaration of that truth, is especially impactful for me. Thank you guys!
We had fun! I can’t overstate the importance of this. The Journey had many moments for me that were uncomfortable or during which resistance or fear came up. I kept trying to open to the process and felt beautifully supported and loved every moment of the Journey by both Catherina and Gerry. This was an unforgettable part of the Journey, and one I will always treasure.
Great one-liners my soul (or Catherina) came up with:
- I now live from the Truth of who I am, the Love that I am. All that I am meant to have, all that my heart truly desires, is being given to me.
- I am so much more than enough!
I am too blessed to be stressed!
- I am a walking billboard for love. I only listen to love.
- I no longer listen to lack, limitations, and lies.
- The Universe has my back.
- Love is the answer (whatever the question).
- Heaven or hell is one thought away.
4) What would you share with someone considering, partaking in their own Quest Personal journey with G and C?
Do the Journey with G and C! It is a gift to yourself beyond measure. Yes you might gulp at the price tag, But the investment you make to your own soul’s evolution, the caring, skillful facilitation and intuitive coaching of Catherina (and Gerry too) cannot be valued just in dollars. What is the value of a life of freedom through love? Millions of people the world over have risked death and tragedy in the name of finding freedom in a new land. We can find it in our own heart.
I thoroughly enjoyed writing the “love letter” to myself, although the marriage ceremony wasn’t so comfortable. At least I got to kiss the bride (virtually) at the end )
I loved how Catherina made sure that my energy and flow was “running the show” and yet the experience didn’t lag or drag, nor did I feel rushed or pressured to “be on schedule”. This was one of the most perfectly flowing experiences of my life.
The experience is “first class” in every way. From the beautiful accommodations high up in the Canadian Rockies, to the hikes and canoeing on Lake Louise, Catherina’s orchestration of the events surrounding the Journey — supported most capably and lovingly by Gerry — was also a real highlight. Of course, Catherina will say that it was me drawing all that happened, and I do accept and celebrate that! But it takes two to tango baby, and thanks to Catherina’s loving intuition, the experience was truly wonderful in all ways.
