    I have always dreamed to share my life experiences with other people. Very often I have tried to talk to friends or family, but I have realized that the listener should have the same passion otherwise it is a waste of time for everyone. So I prefer to walk in the woods to reach the top of a mountain where I can admire a view and sit down on a rock and think in silence. The only sound I can hear is the wind between the branches of trees

    Hello Nina, my story is for me spectacular anyway. About two years ago I ” heard” that I am a lightworker and working as a spiritual therapist, helping women giving their strength back being equal to man ! In my opinion this is important, because in this way coming more and more female energy to our Mother Earth.

    Lovely greetings, Stephan.

      Hello Stephan, thank you for being an ally. You’re right, creating equality will take EVERYONE, women, men and all people regardless of where they are on the gender spectrum.

    Hi Nina,

    I have for a long time now felt a calling to visit the places where Mary Magadelene spent her last days. When I was 12 I spent a month in France as an exchange student, I was living in the UK at the time as I as born in Sussex. It was a feeling I still do not have words to describe, all I can sya is that something was wakened in me and over the years the yearning to return has never gone away. I was raised in a home where spirit was an accepted part of life, my Father is very much in tune with spirit and over the years I have developed enough to start to tune my own intuition. Life has dealt me some interesting lessons, definitely ones I do not need to repeat, they have taught me so much and I am now thankful for the part they have played in my own personal growth. I have learnt above all else that being able to truly forgive is an essential element for clearing a path to true peace. During the last few years I have taken many courses, listened to many learned speakers including Caroline and am now setting up my own business to assist others on the journey . I am in no doubt that I still have a long way to go but love that this is what this life is all about .. Love and light Lizzy

      Hi Lizzy,

      Thank you for sharing your beautiful journey. Your expression of gratitude reminds me of Thomas Aquinas who says, “Gratitude gives back more than it receives.” When we are in a mindset of gratitude, gracisouness and compassion, difficult lessons become gifts. You are an inspiration.

      <3 Love, Nina

    I need to go on this trip. My spirit guides are telling me that I will go but at the moment I have no idea how to pay for it. My husband has had a long term illness that has eaten our life savings and all the equity in our home. I am sixty years old, and have been ‘growing ‘ spiritually to the point where I think I am ready to experience this amazing place. I am called to be a healer, but before I can really do that, I need to finish healing myself. I’ve been going through a huge transformation since I lost my job 3 years ago. I prayed for Jesus to help me forgive and forget. Soon after I was transferred to a building where my boss abused me, accused me of stuff I didn’t do, and ruined my career. When I got fired it felt like I was drawn and quartered, like my limbs were being ripped from my body. I sank into a deep depression that lasted two years, but coming out the other end, I realize, what better way to understand what Jesus knew than to be crucified yourself? I am greatful for each day and realize that horrible experience was what I prayed for and what I needed to let go of my anger and pain. I think I am ready for this journey to France now. I hope you will consider me for the free trip as I have not been able to work in my field for three years and I am very broke but would love to go. Plus I am dying to meet you!

    Hello Dancing Spirit Team!

    Thank you for this opportunity. I will make a video this week! So exciting!

    My name is Charissa van der Vlies, my age is 41 and I am from Amsterdam The Netherlands.

    When I first saw this journey to France advertised on Carolyne Myss newsletter, my heart leaped with joy.
    This is my year of Yes! My word for the year is LIVE as the past years have been surrounded by death.

    My whole life has been a road of tough love life lessons and the past years also haven’t been easy. The school of life has made me who I am and I am very grateful for that, but now I feel a bit worn and lost.

    You see I am coming out of hibernation after hard years off loss and letting go. After first losing my stepfather 5 years ago, 2 colleagues on the MH17 flight in 2014, 2 years ago my Grandmother, and last year both my parents lost their fight against Cancer. Many years of grief and letting go. I put my own life on hold for so long, always worrying and taking care of others, and I am now in serious need of some TLC.

    Last year was all about turning inward, about healing. After my parents died I traveled to France and visited Rennes le Chateau to be comforted and empowered by Mary Magdalene. Her energy so soothed and strengthened me. Her powerful love is overwhelming and inspiring. But I so strongly feel that my work in France is not done yet. I so long to be, to be there and heal my heart. And to feel grounded again. I feel very ungrounded, my parents, my roots are gone and at times I feel very lost. I need to find my way in life again so I can soar and be the powerful and loving woman I know I am.

    I long for connection with likeminded souls. For a feeling of belonging, a safe place for sharing. A place away from everyday life to reflect and feel where I should take my journey of life next. Which path I need to follow. I feel a bit confused and lost, but I feel a deep calling to connect more to my feminine power and my inner child. A deep need for self care and nurture. For love really.

    Now with Spring I am slowly moving more outward. Last Winter I was so tired and so needed to be alone, that I did what I had to do, but mostly kept to myself. I now need to create my new life. With all my responsibilities gone I also feel this immense freedom. The world is my oyster. I can reinvent myself. Now for that I need inspiration and a final push so I dare make a change and make a difference.

    Thank you so much for this opportunity.

    I hope to see you in France in September… a positive Omen for me is that 25th of September is my birthday.

    Thank you.

    Wishing you a beautiful Equinox gateway and a beautiful Springtime

      Dear Charissa

      I’ve just read your story and wanted to say how your openness and honesty really touched me. I too have been through a very long and tough cycle of big losses and deep letting go, and I am also on the brink of a brand new chapter.

      Coincidentally, my birthday is the day before yours and although I am a decade older than you, I felt a sense of kinship with your heart and journey.

      Many blessings to you. Thank you for sharing your heart.

      Love
      Melinda

    Thank you Nina and Team for this opportunity. I started and stopped many attempts at sending a video. Now I only hope the one I did capture will load and send. I have read several books and downloaded many recordings of Caroline Myss (still listening to, again, the archetypes she so brilliantly describes out in them) and have been listening as well to my inner voice. It would be such an honor to actually meet her and to spend time in the company of many others who feel the same pull of spirit guiding them to such sacred spots in France. There just must be way to heal and help our fellow spirits and to reconnect to the divine in each of us. We learn best from listening to what’s within and sharing that with others.
    Namaste,
    MJC

    Hi Nina! I know this submission is really late but, I just discovered this email! This is sooooo me! I thought i would email you in case you may have a space available or perhaps in your next episode! I certainly have an incredible story touching on all the experiences you mentioned, death of a parent, divorce, parent with Alhzheimers and her eventual passing, four moves in four years, a motor vehicle accident with serious injuries, business restrucuring and downsizing and all this time working as a Massage Therapist and Integrative Craniosacral Therapist helping others on their healing journey! All these major life transition all took place in a four year period. I was fortunate to take a spiritual pilgrimge to Assisi,Italy; Lourdes, France; Madrid, Spain and Fatima, Portugal that was so beneficial for my spiritual, emotional and physical healing journey. It is what I call “From Stress to Bliss, Journey from Post Traumatic Stress to Post Traumatic Growth”. which is a book I am currently writing.
    I would absolutely love the opportunity to partake and share my Inner journey and my personal and professional experiences working with healing for the past 24 years!
    With Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
    Martez

    I just stumbled across your post and I saw that it’s too late to submit a video/application. ? I have been looking for something to bring excitement, hope, and joy back into my life and my mom’s life too. My dad died unexpectedly last year of an accidental overdose. 2016 was very dark and heavy. I have a two year old son and he is my light and I am working on my own healing and remembering I am light and to shine bright. I have had one of your brochures for years now saved in a box, hoping one day to go on a journey like this. My mom and I are both very spiritual and open minded. We believe we are here to help bring back the feminine. ??
