A Little Bit of "Soul Restoration"

I only told a few people that I was taking this class.

Why? Well, how do you tell someone that you're going to take a Class called "Soul Restoration." I'd be faced with all of these questions and I didn't know how I would answer them.

Their Question: So what's the class about?
My Answer: I don't know.

Their Question: If you don't know what it's about then why are you taking it?
My Answer:
I don't know. Maybe I'm taking it so that I won't feel like I'm left out of something.

Their Question: Why do you think you need to take a class that "everyone" else is taking?
My Answer: Because maybe I will learn something.

Their Question: Do you think that you will be able to take an online class? Haven't you taken others that weren't good, or that you didn't like? Are you SURE that you want to do this again?
My Answer: Yes. I'm sure. I think I need to do it for me.

And the last answer was all it took.

I needed this class for me. I needed to restore myself and I was hoping that this class would help me do that.

Okay, so the title also intrigued me too!

I wondered what would be taught, what would/could Melody show us and teach us that we didn't already know? And the answer is A LOT!

Soul Restoration taught me SO so much about myself. It taught me to understand why I did certain things, and why I had certain beliefs. It taught me to overcome my fears, to go face to face with everything. To bring "scary" things out into the open and learn how to over come the "scariness". And to learn why they were scary in the first place.

Soul Restoration allowed me to go back through my life and see how far I have come. What I have accomplished,my journey (the good AND the bad) what I have done,my struggles, my celebrations, EVERYTHING! And I discovered that I have done a lot!

Soul Restoration taught me forgiveness. Yes...forgiveness. I have forgiven people that have hurt me in the past because that is the past. There is NOTHING You can do about the past! That's why it's called the PAST (lol). I'm looking towards the future now and how I can improve that future.

You know it's sort of funny, well to me at least. Every week I would look forward to the lesson that was going to be presented to us. I thought, "what are we going to do this week!" It was exciting! And I listened to EVERY word in the videos, sometimes three or four times! Over and over and OVER! Why? Because what we were taught was true.!

Yes, it was all true!

So now the question is Why Should YOU take this class? And my answer is....

Everyone can use a little Soul Restoration.
