Brandon Bays

This weekend I am going to be a trainer at the Journey Intensive here on the Gold Coast. This weekend is special as this weekend’s Gold Coast Intensive is being offered free to anyone affected by the Queensland floods. The article that follows is an updated version of an article I wrote back in 2008 for Jenny Mannion for her Heroes of Healing series

Brandon Bays: A Journey To Freedom

I first met Brandon Bays at an introductory evening to the Journey in December 1999 in Sydney, Australia. I was so impressed with Brandon’s story, I then attended The Journey intensive weekend in February 2000. This was a life healing and changing process for me. Des, my life partner commented on how free I was after this weekend, like a layer had been lifted. I know for me I was able to release stored memories that enabled me to forgive myself along with family members and others.

Eleven years  on I still marvel at the power of the Journey Process, the stories of healing I have both heard about as well as been witness too. Most years I spend one weekend volunteering at a journey intensive. This weekend is always powerful. Watching other people experience the joy that comes from this simple process. There are some amazing stories of healing.

Here is Brandon’s story:

What Suzie Cheel Learned From Brandon:

“Come to the Edge”, he said. “We can’t Master, we’re scared.” “Come to the Edge”, he said. “We can’t Master, we’re scared.” “Come to the Edge”, he said. They came. He pushed them. They flew.

This quotation is in the front of a journal I was given after completing my Journey intensive to record my journey to freedom. The Journey and working with Brandon Bays has given me tools to release much of the emotional baggage I like, many others, have carried around for many years.

I love the Physical Journey process where I can simply, by myself, explore a physical issue and release the pain and move on.

I love how Brandon simplifies what we don’t know and says to put it in the “bucket of unknowables”. Allow Grace to take care of it!

Brandon’s  book Freedom Is a wonderful resource that you can use daily for meditation and release. I use the CD that accompanies the book.

For many years I have regularly used The Healing Sand meditation for both release and meditation.

The friendships that I have formed over the years through The Journey are wonderful. I have also completed many of the advanced courses offered. Now there are many free workshops and online teleclasses and webinars to introduce you to the Journey Process. Details about events can be found at The Journey and these are worldwide. Brandon has now embraced social media and you will find her on Facebook , Twitter and Youtube.

The Journey is an invitation for you to participate in your own natural healing process by diving into the core of your being to uncover the greatness that is locked inside!

Are you ready to fly?
