In an Oasis Session with Deb Beroset, creator of Moxie, just two hours on an immersive and mystical journey will help you rediscover who you are, illuminate what you want and unlock the power of your deepest dreams.
It’s a defining moment, a shift in energy and a turning point in your life. You’ll discover: how to tap into your innate wisdom and hear what’s calling to your soul; deep compassion for your fears and frustrations and clarity about what’s in your way; how to find safety, support and strength with the help of your divine guides; appreciation for your gifts, passion and magic; and a profound sense of well-being and purpose.
Sometimes I feel like everyone else has their life figured out except for me. That’s the reason I was drawn to Moxie’s Oasis experience. When I first met Beroset on the Zoom screen, she exuded both inner and outer beauty. She also possesses a warm personality, which made me feel safe to express my innermost thoughts without judgment.
The initial lesson was the importance of acknowledging that life is fleeting. The next moment isn’t guaranteed. I marked where I was on my personal life journey on a diagram as well as where my life will most likely end. The point is that we must live intentionally, with our arms wide open, and make every moment count.
Another concept that enables us to move forward on a positive course is to live without regrets about the past. You can’t go back and change the beginning, so start where you are and change the ending. I’m 68 years old, so time is running out, and a voice in my head keeps asking me, “What am I missing?”
Beroset had me imagine my life as a movie, like a “movie me”. I was the protagonist in the movie, and I had the ability to write my own script. I felt a little bit like a fish out of water as an actor, so I channeled famed acting coach, Stella Adler.
I acted out both the parts of a hypothetical demonic character who was gloom and doom about my chance of happiness (which was how I imagined my lower energy of dispiritedness would look and sound) as well as an angelic character (how my imagination cast the part of possibility) who encouraged me to reach for the stars. It was as if I was in a therapy session with a brainy psychiatrist unearthing the dark dialogue inside of my head.
Fortunately, Beroset kept me upbeat throughout the session, as she empowered me to look within and ask myself what would add pleasure and meaning to my life. At the end of the session, Beroset had me draw a Tarot card from the deck by telling her which one to pull. My card was the Hanged Man, which made me wonder whether my life might be over sooner than later, and yet it had a positive message. It depicts a man hanging upside down in a yoga tree pose, with the sole of one foot resting on the inner thigh of the other leg.
Because the man is upside down, his heart is above his head. This enables him to pause and gives him a chance to distill his experiences into a completely new story. Where will he go from here? The inquiries posed for myself were: What are my options at this time? And how am I honoring the path of my heart? I thought I knew myself, but I had an epiphany that my true progress lies in a direction I haven’t gone yet.
After the Oasis session, I decided to name my movie, “Where Have I Been All of My Life?” I will not settle for anything that dulls my spark. I resolved to leave the past at the curb and to live without regrets. I let go of all limiting ideas and beliefs and I chose love over fear. I committed to make better food choices and to support my body and health. To read more and watch less TV.
I feel motivated to go after happiness like it’s the only thing I can take with me when I die. I vowed to prioritize my schedule to ensure that I would have more time to pursue what sets my soul on fire—art, travel, philanthropy, spirituality, creativity and physical fitness.
Deb Beroset taught me self-love. As the credits roll at the end of my Lifetime movie, I will acknowledge Deb Beroset as the teacher who taught me that it’s never too late to start living your Moxie life.Connect with Deb Beroset and learn more about her Oasis sessions at [email protected] or ItsTimeForMoxie.com.
