His Story

How we met? Well…. we met in Mexico on a retreat in 2007. That’s short and sweet right?
If you want more you’ll have to read two stories. I’ll start my version of the story in 2006…

I was SINGLE…

exploring lots of new ideas and philosophies and decided to change my approach to finding “that” relationship.  Believing that all of my thoughts, feelings and actions to date had landed me a big fat ZERO in the relationship department I thought to try something new. Experimenting with The Law of Attraction – the concept of like attracts like, I made a list of what I was looking for in a partner as well as what the relationship would be/feel like… Really, I did this… My Ideal Relationship ~ His :)  Once or twice a day I would focus on one or two of the items on the list and I would get into the “vibration” of the feeling of being in that relationship, expecting that I would attract it to me. I soon realized I would have to become it to attract it. You sceptics will smile on this next comment… PROGRESS SEEMED A BIT SLOW :( but I was persevering.  All of this was August through December 2006…

On a totally different note…

I was (still am) chairperson for the Kelowna Chapter of the Canadian Society of Questers, and as such would occasionally host speakers at our home, who come from out of town. One particular speaker was Carol Heywood Babrauskas from Issaquah, Washington in January 2007.  As well as speaking, Carol was also promoting a “Creativity Retreat” in Mexico to which I paid little attention until the last night she was visiting… That night we had a great conversation about her retreat which promised to be pretty relaxing with plenty of FREE TIME scheduled… In fact there didn’t seem to be much of a schedule at all, very few expectations placed upon participants. In short; this would be the furthest I had ever ventured from home, only accessible by water, no motorized traffic on ground, only serviced with electricity in the last couple of years, sketchy internet service, peaceful – no need for a police force, rustic accommodation, hot water @ room temperature, the only person I would know ahead of time was Carol.  I could get away from work/technology/the modern world, meet some new people, unwind and bring home only memories and a relaxed feeling :) I was IN!

Fast forward to March 14th 2007…

I met almost all of the other retreat participants for the Puerto Vallarta connecting flight, at the airport in Seattle. Once in Mexico we were to be two nights in PV before our connecting 1 hour water taxi ADVENTURE to the little fishing village of Yelapa and our destination Casa Milagros (about 250 stairs above the dock!). When we landed in PV Carol decided to wait at the airport for the last two participants to arrive so she could escort them to our hotel in “old” PV. The rest of us went ahead to settle in at the hotel, relax, enjoy the sun and visit. I remember sitting poolside with my new acquaintances like it was yesterday because that’s where I was when I became SMITTEN… I mean… that’s when Carol showed up and introduced Denny and Ahn Caldwell… Actually I don’t think I heard their names right away. “She” sat down three chairs away on my left… I tried not to be obvious with staring.  I was d o n e.

Now you know the story of how and where I met Goldie (AKA Denny/ Denise)… So I knew something immediately… But I’m sure she didn’t. If you haven’t already, you have to read her side of things, which I’m betting is quite different than mine :)

As for the Law of Attraction – You’ll have to decide for yourself!

Ps I can’t help thinking that Carol would have something to say if you were to ask her…
