Gathering 2018: Introducing Dana Wingerd

The Mountain Gypsies' Gathering 2018 gets closer every week, and just like I have in previous posts, my goal this week is to introduce you to another awesome person you'll see there.

Introducing Dana Wingerd!

I first met Dana at a paranormal convention she ran for 7 years: Phenomenology. Dana's journey began as a paranormal investigator because ever since she was a child, she could see spirits. Her journey includes undergoing an exorcism, being healed spiritually, and coming back to God. Dana has trained with the Mountain Gypsies and has certificates as a Reiki Master and Mountain Magic Healer.  She also started her own business with her daughter, Julia: Like Mother Like Daughter—Shining Light on the Darkness.

Dana will be speaking at the Gathering (entitled Breaking the Religious Chains: True Love), and she and Julia will have a table where you can sign up for a healing and/or purchase any one of their gorgeous handmade soaps, lip scrubs, bath salts, etc., all of which have been prayed over.

Gathering 2018 is a laid back event and a great way to decompress. Come be surrounded by the beauty of Roan Mountain, hear some inspiring stories, attend some fireside chats, be treated to an amazing party, camp out in the Mountains (or get into a B&B or a cabin), and connect with others who are also on their spiritual healing journeys.

Get your tickets here! It's only $30 for the entire weekend of lectures, workshops, and a party at Sorrento's in Banner Elk. (Other incidentals are your responsibility.) Then mark yourself as "going" on the event page, and share with your friends.

Fortune Cookie Friday: The Means of Happiness

Ok, so, as I mentioned in this post here, Fortune Cookie Friday will be an occasional feature here at positively b.e.e. I get a lot of these every time I order Chinese food or go out, plus I sometimes buy a package of them (you can get a big box here), because I like them a lot.

I find the sayings inside often start a train of thought, for me, so I may as well share those trains here and see what you have to say about it, and I invite you to share your fortune cookie fortunes with me as well!

So without further adieu, the first fortune cookie fortune on this site:

"We cannot be happy unless we think we are the means of good to others."
What do you guys think of that?

My first, knee-jerk reaction to this was: "Nah."

But that was my brain trying to get in the way of my heart. When I tell my brain to pipe down, I get so much more out of thi…

Fortune Cookie Friday: Bide Your Time

Hello fortune lovers! I hope you have had a most excellent week!

Here is today's fortune:

Bide your time, for success is near.
This one has me scratching my head a tiny bit. Is it saying to just cool my heels and wait for success to show up? I mean, to bide your time means to wait, but I've never been good at that. :) Let's explore this concept a little more.

Imagine the following scenario:

You really want to launch a new business. You develop a product, and then put it up on the internet to sell it. Do you then sit back and wait to see if it'll sell?

You're going to market it, right? You're going to place ads, tell everyone you know, maybe hold an open house or pass out flyers or business cards.

That said, there is value in patiently following the steps you need in order to be successful, and not shortcutting on any of the stages or materials.

Fortune Cookie Friday: The Roving Bee

Hello, and happy Friday! I hope you've all had a great week. It is Fortune Cookie Friday, so let's see what today holds:
It's the roving bee 🐝 that gathers honey. 🍯
First of all, I'd like to start with a side note: I love how my house is a virtual scavenger hunt when it comes to fortunes. It's fun for me when I find them. I have these things tucked away in all kinds of tiny little places, and it never ceases to amaze me when I come upon one that seems to speak exactly to what I'm thinking at the time. This one was tucked away in a drawer, with a rusty old paperclip on it. I have no idea what it used to be clipped to, by the way, but I took the clip off to take the photo, and it left those imprints on the paper. I don't even know how long I've had this one, but it has probably traveled with me through several moves over sever…
