I just got back from Pure Romance 2013 National Convention South Africa. You’d think after 20+ hours of traveling, I’d be completely spent. Truthfully, it’s not the easiest flight, but it provided a lot of time for some long-overdue reflection. Seeing how excited and passionate the South Africa Consultants are about their businesses truly refueled me and gave me a renewed sense of vigor for Pure Romance and the lives we are touching every day across the globe.
Some of the most important lessons I’ve learned have been during my travels. One such trip especially comes to mind; I was on a Consultant Incentive Trip Cruise and I remember feeling completely off balance (and, no, it was not seasickness!). Back home, I’m always so busy with work that I never get to just relax in front of the TV and watch daytime television. So I went back to my ship cabin and flipped on the TV to find Dr. Oz talking about our seven chakras.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with chakras, they are energy centers where Life Force flows into and out of our being, on the physical, emotional, mental, etheric and spiritual levels. Using practices like chakra meditation releases old negative energy, rebalances and heals ourselves on all levels of our being. You might be sitting there thinking, “Patty seems to be tapping in to her old teenage Hippie days again,” but some of the most successful and prominent business people in the world today swear by the benefits of these techniques. In fact, I just read an article the other day where a hedge fund “genius” announced that meditation was the secret to his success. More and more Westerners are turning to centuries-old Eastern practices that heal and often address and resolve issues where even Western medicine has failed.
It was interesting that I just happened to catch this Dr. Oz Show when I needed it the most. This is much like the time I serendipitously flipped on Phil Donahue’s show about in-home parties and my life (and the life of all Pure Romance Consultants) has never since been the same!
I truly believe when you put a healthy, sincere intention into the universe, it responds. The question is will you listen when it does? You only have a small window in which to follow its lead, and in the case of Dr. Oz, I had definitely been longing to find ways to better balance my energy and refuel so that I could continue to lead so many amazing women through Pure Romance for many more years to come. I promise to share whatever I learn as I continue to research this interesting method, and encourage all of you to keep an open mind to age-old techniques that offer peace of mind and energy where and when we least expect it.

Thank you for the post Patty. Your message here is just at the right time when I was feeling overwhelmed with the tasks ahead and not knowing what to do next. I’ll be finding some quiet time for myself so that I can refuel!
