Paris, France

Yesterday we were so privilaged to work with 35+ Portuguése women They were so lovely. Some spoke English but most did not. It was a beatiful how the started off with peopke a little shy but by end the language, culture or geography didn’t matter. we felt so connected as a group of women compssion for what others are going through, yet holding a dpace for one another as we grow and continue to be more connected and peaceful both inside and out.. We wrapped up the evening exchanging emails, taking photos and sharing hugs. It was beautiful.  Afterwards our group at at a delicious vegetarian restaurant. Then got settled into our new hotel for the night.

This morning we woke up at 3:45am We caught an early flight to Paris. Once we got here we checked in and replenished our energies with a day of sightseeing.  We started the journey with cafe and croissants. (amazingly the first one I have ever loved). The walked along the river, and took in the scenery. We stopped and drank some red wine with cheese and baguettes. It was an experience I will never forget.  We saw Notre Dame and many bridges.

Laughed so hard trying to figure out the self washing port-a-potties.

Then for dinner I had french onion soup and crepes filled with nutella. They were both great.

The afternoon rain stopped in time for us to take a night time walk to the Eiffel Tower. it was pretty amazing.

If you have a bracelet, I’d love if you’d wear it during October.   We really are all connected and I imagine a tangible energy from feeling that support and connection while I’m overseas.

Updates on the Harmony tour to Israel and Palestine

I have been asked many times in the last few weeks about my feelings of what is going on in Israel and Palestine right now in relation to my going there this fall.

I’ll keep this  short but I want to share my feelings with all of you who have so kindly supported me and made this trip possible.

There are around 10 weeks until I’m scheduled to go, I am keeping informed of what is going on but I am refusing to get wrapped up in it or fall into fearful thinking.  I’m asking anyone who reads this to do the same and to resist adding to the fear and anger.  Instead send thoughts and prayers of peace and support to all involved.   This fighting going on serves as a reminder of how vital it is that these two sides find common ground.  We all can make an energetic difference through our prayers, meditations and thoughts of love and peace.  Pray for wisdom and clarity for those leading the fight on both sides, that they will find peaceful resolutions to the ongoing dis-harmony and back down the fighting.

There are tremendous civilian efforts going on behind the scenes showing support for one another on both sides. Stories of both sides serving, helping and praying for the other side.  You can follow any of these groups on Facebook here:

Unify

Palestine loves Israel

Israel loves Palestine

These groups are posting incredible stories of civilians coming together, stories of hope and more.

 

The women organizing our trip have our safety as an utmost concern.  One will be heading back the region in the coming weeks and from within the area will be in tune with the pulse of what is happening.  She is also in constant communication with both the Israeli and Palestinian women we will be meeting with while there.

I feel very called to be a part of positive change in this world and am confident all will work out how it should; concerning both my involvement in this situation and others in the future.

 

I’ll continue to update in the months to come as I know more, but as I said above I am just going to continue on planning that the trip will go on as planned, if things change we’ll deal with it then.   Thanks for your continued support!  **Noelle

Big Harmony Bracelet announcement

Great news!
I was crunching the numbers this weekend and I’m able to offer a special on the Diamond, Pinwheel and Floral Garden style bracelets!  I have received about 3x more of these styles than any other style, so even though they’ve been my best sellers I still have a lot of them left.  I have all three of these styles listed for only $20 each!
Here is the scoop.  I have just over 2 months left to raise my last $4000 for my trip.  I have a large garage sale planned for spring (if you have a box or two of goodies you planned on donating and instead would like to send them my way please let me know, I’d be so grateful!) and am hoping to bring in $1000 from that and a few other small fundraisers planned as well in addition to the Harmony bracelets.
It’s about more than a bracelet.  When all bracelets are sold there will be 333 women walking around Minnesota and the country who have purchased from me and are all wearing these bracelets to represent what we can do when we join together and put our money towards good things in the world. We can all make a difference. This bracelet is a small step in declaring that.
I hope that every time you look at your bracelet you feel connected to all the other women who are declaring that they too are cheering on love and compassion, peace and unity over all else.
There are also a few red and pink bracelets left that are included in this sale that are perfect for Valentine’s Day.  (What a great gift.)
 
I will be wearing my bracelet on Valentines Day and I hope you will wear yours too. 
 
Post a pic to FB of you wearing your bracelet that day and tage me in it. Let’s help spread the word that together we are all making a difference! 
 
I am SO grateful for each and every one of you!  Thank you for supporting me. I will be leaving in only 4 months!
Make sure to let me know if you have any questions.
