Long story short! For many years I have experienced frustrations, depressions and repressions toward my life, relationships and sexuality. Living in complicated situation of unclarity toward myself, putting my power into the shadow. depleting my potentials under the surface of fear, shame and resentment.
About 15 months ago as I was doing my obligatory military service I noticed an strong desire to stop the way I used to live and change. to stop this frustration, this depletion and begin to thrive. I started to observe myself and my behaviors very carefully, and very courageous I began to change. I began to abstain from some damaging behaviors or thought patterns. And of course the universe brought many wonderful gifts to me from here and there. I started to put my body in different healing venues and programs and stopped lots of both mental and behavioral harmful habits.
I started to grow little by little. But still there are some deep rooted dilemmas and areas I personally was unable to heal with the available facility in my country and around.
Last year a very dear friend of mine spoke me about a school called ISTA. International school of temple arts. A school of deep spiritual experiences and self empowerment. First there was doubt about it to participate or not but then after consultations, self inquiries and researches It appeared to me that this is a path I want to cross. and now I feel like it is one of the most right places I can put my body in.
Link to information about ISTA level 1 in Turkey.
There was two problem toward my feet. first as I am a citizen of Iran, taking visa is kind of a big deal for me and then as the country's economic situation is unstable and second the money value is dramatically low and also because my recent return of the service and my low income I had to handle a lot of money for participating there.
But then lights of hope came in wonderfully.
The school allowed me for their course in turkey in the august which is easily accessible for me via land without visa. And then with my living situations background and my young age, they put me into a project called LEAH FUND. an amazing self empowerment project. A bank of love for lovers. a platform for young ages and complicated background people to be supported and have the opportunity to engage into this amazing program. via this Fund I granted an amazing discount help me to work and gather the fund in way more accessible situation.
as I am really burning into participating in the course I decided to run this cause to step more powerful in this point of power and ask to support me to participate in this life changing course!
and wow! what an amazing movement it can be. supporting a person change maybe support the whole city, the whole country and maybe the whole world to change and stop the fear and frustrations and bring love to all of us!
I launch this campaign as a ceremony of Abundance and Love for lighting and generating consciousnesses, trust and freedom on the earth!
So much Love and Lights!
