Virginia Waldron, CH, CI, has worked since 2000 in the Syracuse area as a certified hypnotist, past life regression an life between lives facilitator. She has worked with clients who have experienced almost every type of STE - NDEs, OBEs, ADCs, Death Bed Visions, encounter experiences, etc. She will talk about spiritually transformative experiences, about how they come to all of us, in small and big ways, and how they guide us to our own awakening. They are steps along our path, placed by us, to help us evolve spiritually. This will be a group participation - we will share our stories, learn from each other's stories, and help each other to realize our own spiritual potential. This is going to be a singular event - join us, bring a friend, share your stories!
What Are STEs?
Spiritually Transformative Experiences or STEs, are events that affect us in a very real and often spiritual ways. There are many types and many names for these experiences which are catalysts for spiritual transformation and awakening. STEs may be called transcendent, transpersonal, religious, mystical, paranormal, psychic, death-related, encounter types, even parapsychological or ecstatic experiences.
Such experiences can happen at any time, to anyone, under any circumstances. Some times these experiences are sought after through meditation, yoga, drugs, religious practices, prayer, dance, drumming, or simple sensory deprivation. Other times such experiences can happen spontaneously without expectation and in such a way that they appear to be random chance or at best, synchronistic. What is important about them is that we listen to them, we take note and we honor them, because it is often through these kinds of experiences we awaken to who we truly are, we remember our divinity.
The kind of experiences that we are talking about touch the individual in personal and significant ways that cannot be easily measured or dismissed. Rather, they seem to catalyze a process that eventually can lead to the realization of the person’s higher human potential. Through these awakenings lives, world views, and even identities can be transformed.
In Drs. Weiss and Newton’s books, as well as Rob Schartz’ books, we learn about how these Life Plans or Master Plans are created, and how we, as the Master Architects of each life we journey through hereon earth, choose, negotiate and put together the blue print that would be our life plan,with the focus for our greatest and highest good. A life between live regression, such as Dr. Newton talks about in his books assist facilitate individuals as they move into the inner realms and higher levels of consciousness to recall their past lives, visit with their guides and experience their Soul’s journey.
If we are the authors of each lifetime here on earth, the creators of the Master Plan that guides us through each incarnation, then we are the ones who place the necessary lessons, challenges and opportunities along that plan. We create these steps for us to experience so that our life purpose, our Soul Mission can come about. If part of our mission, as Spiritual or Soul Beings having a human experience, is to come here to remember or awaken to our own divinity, then it is important that we go through certain experiences and lessons to open ourselves to that awakening.
I have not had hugely extraordinary things happen to me that caused a bright and obvious spiritual awakening, such as an NDE or OBE. However, I have had many experiences, some soft and some loud, some bright and others dark, that have guided me towards a more gentle spiritual awakening that changed my perspective of myself and my life.
In my work with hypnosis, past life regression, and life between lives regression, I found there are many others who have had such experiences which are very much a step along their soul’s journey. There is a need for a way to explore these questions, to share our stories of our experiences, and to find out more about the steps we create for ourselves, as spiritual beings on a human path.
Sometimes these steps are small and subtle, and sometimes they are large and hard to get past. Sometimes we must go through experiences that are harsh or painful or frightening, and we don’t know why it must be that way, why we must suffer and struggle. But, what if we could understand the whys, the hows and the lessons each of these steps brings to us? What if we were aware enough to take in the energy of the step and use it to help ourselves, consciously and deliberately?
If these STEs are part of our Master Plan, if they are steps that we put along our path to remind us, to awaken to our divinity, then if we work with them, if we bring them to our conscious mind, and get a better understanding of how they are on our path to help us, we can use them more effectively, we can take the charge of the experience itself to bring about that spiritual awakening, and remember our true divinity.
How do we do this? We come together and share our stories. By sharing our stories, our experiences, and connecting what we have lived and learned, and allowing the images and memories of the past to return to the conscious mind so that their stories can be heard and processed, and listening to and bearing witness to those of others, our spiritual experiences seem more vivid, imaginable, and become more effective. Through the telling of our stories, we experience a richer and more intense spiritual awareness and growth.
This kind of creative narrative is a transformational experience in and of itself, bringing enlightenment and development of the individual portrait of each person’s experience, by opening a creative synthesis of the entire journey, reflecting the personal knowledge, tacit awareness and understanding of the meaning and essence of this work.
I call this work STEPs, Spiritually Transformative Experience Patterns; the patterns on our life plan that bring us to a higher awareness of self, awakening to our divinity. It works very well in a group activity, like a workshop or a class. We tell our stories to each other, and as we do, we are drawn out and we remember more and more of these experiences. As we listen to others tell their stories, we can see our own growth and enlightenment unfold through their experiences.
