Gregg Braden signing Deep Truth Gregg Braden sign­ing Deep Truth

This weekend’s I Can Do It! Con­fer­ence at the Gay­lord Hotel and Con­fer­ence Cen­ter was a giant buf­fet with seem­ingly end­less delec­table life-​enhancing choices. There truly was some­thing for every­one, from sci­en­tif­i­cally sup­ported lec­tures on a deeper under­stand­ing of our human expe­ri­ence from Gregg Braden and Bruce Lip­ton to acoustic musi­cal per­for­mances by Alex Woodard’s For the Sender. It was a won­der­ful way to get a taste of the best of Hay House and delve into the art of liv­ing our great­est lives – one pre­cious soul at a time, one pre­cious moment at a time.

Cheryl Richard­son was an excep­tional start to the con­fer­ence and imme­di­ately allayed any dis­ap­point­ment over Wayne Dyer’s inabil­ity to appear by hav­ing the audi­ence col­lec­tively send love and light for Wayne’s speedy heal­ing. As she moved into her pre­sen­ta­tion, Cheryl suc­cinctly declared a sin­gle com­mon pur­pose for all of us – to wake up. She fur­ther coun­seled that when we begin telling the truth about our lives, mir­a­cles start to hap­pen. So many of us are sleep walk­ing through our lives, telling sto­ries that we believe to be the truth. Too often these sto­ries are based on the sto­ries we’ve been told about who we should be and that we repeat about who we think we are sup­posed to be rather than from a place of authen­tic­ity. That was cer­tainly true for me. As I con­tinue to become increas­ingly com­fort­able dis­cov­er­ing and speak­ing my truth – liv­ing more authen­ti­cally with­out fear of dis­ap­point­ing oth­ers or being judged, mir­a­cles abound – affirm­ing me and sup­port­ing my con­tin­ued evo­lu­tion and growth. For a jump-​start on telling your truth, Cheryl says start with your rela­tion­ships as they pro­vide our great­est oppor­tu­ni­ties for great­ness. Telling the truth about our rela­tion­ships – the good, the bad, and the ugly – frees us to cre­ate health­ier and hap­pier rela­tion­ships with oth­ers and ourselves.

It is impos­si­ble to pick a favorite keynote, so I’ll offer some of my favorite quotes from a few of the ses­sions I attended over the two days:

“Self­ish­ness is over­com­pen­sa­tion for not feel­ing uncon­di­tion­ally loved. We can’t give what we don’t have. We must love our­selves. We must put our­selves first. When you know how to love and care for your­self, you nat­u­rally become a more lov­ing per­son and enhance your own lov­abil­ity.” – Anita Moor­jani, Dying to Be Me!

“Your pur­pose is to fully love and trust your­self and live your joy. We are so con­di­tioned to ask for per­mis­sion that we for­get per­mis­sion is a birthright.” – Kris Carr, From Ill­ness to Resilience

“Our biggest cri­sis is a cri­sis in think­ing. We’re using out­dated par­a­digms to solve unprece­dented changes that are here to stay. We must shift from exclu­sive head-​based deci­sion mak­ing to a model that includes our hearts and instincts. Build­ing resilience is not a lux­ury. It is a 21st cen­tury imper­a­tive.” – Gregg Braden, Cre­at­ing Resilience in a Time of Extremes

“Skep­ti­cism is gen­er­ally an indi­ca­tion of igno­rance. Stay open minded and be patient.” – Brian Weiss

“We are not vic­tims of our biol­ogy; we are vic­tims of our thoughts. Our thoughts are res­onat­ing in the world. The things that come into our lives are a result of our thought processes. Change your mind and change your envi­ron­ment.” – Bruce Lip­ton, The Hon­ey­moon Effect

Cheryl and Bruce were the per­fect book­ends to the con­fer­ence. Cheryl opened us all up to the impor­tance of car­ing for our­selves – to include cul­ti­vat­ing life-​enhancing rela­tion­ships with oth­ers and our­selves. Bruce encour­aged us to feed the healthy form of addic­tion to love that sup­ports our being fully present for our lives and beam­ing lasers of light of whole­ness, bliss, and peace.

It was an excep­tional way to spend a weekend.
