#7 Aura Awareness: How to Protect Your Energy Field
Ken Bede Southfield, MI

We all live in an electrical universe. There is a unifying field underneath everything. We are separated by a physical plane, but we are all connected through this spiritual grid. This is important for us to understand, not only for life, but for any kind of physical and spiritual progress you can ever hope to make. Your aura is like a fingerprint; it is completely unique and represents precisely who you really are. However, if your aura is riddled with imperfections, you are unlikely to achieve your most important goals in life. Your aura defines your past, your present, and your future. In this class, we will discuss the importance of a cleansed aura and removing those imperfections that surround us. The results will be life changing!

#8 Sacred Challenges - The Fire Emotions
Adrianna Lesniak Lum, MI

Learn to understand and work with ANGER, GRIEF, and FEAR using your Angelic team. Using the Triad, we will explore the darker emotions and how to channel our Masters, Guides, and Teachers to provide comfort, and bring clarity and light into these highly emotional vibrations. We will explore and exlpain the necessity of the “Fire Emotions.” There is “always” a price to pay when you lose control, whether you know it or not. This will be a process of conditioning the mind to “accept” these emotions and make changes in the way we relate to Anger, Grief, and Fear in ourselves and others. We need to be aware that there is compassion at the end of the tunnel when we experience these emotions. Processing them removes the darkness so that we may see the Light. Not dealing with the Anger, Grief, and Fear causes depression.
