My name is Rachel, a 22 year old shifter girl from México and I'm going to tell how I started to play this game and how I found Brendon, this amazing human being and leader.
First of all, I want to share this with everyone and since I speak two languages I would really like to write this in spanish too, so I'll post 2 stories here, for anyone who speaks it and may wanna read them.
Okay, the story begins with me almost a year ago, feeling stressed and confused about my life and what I really wanted . I'm still studying my career (Programming and Digital Animation) to 2 years left for me to finish, I started feeling like nothing in my life was right, like everything I was doing had no sense at all. I felt my days were simple daily routine and asked myself if what I just chose was ''the right thing''(yeah, obviously!). I have to say that I've always been related with meditation and spiritual stuff because of my mother. She's reiki master so she pretty knows a lot of that. She kinda transmitted me and my brother all her knowledge. But I was awaken in a 20% (I had been so lost!). Since I was a teenage everything went really difficult for me. I wasn't aware of anything surrounding me (obviously!) so suffering was constantly present in my life (obviously! haha).
One day my cousin Yonatan, which I don't really see often, came by from Quebec, Canada (where he actually lives) for some personal reason and my uncles offered a small dinner for him so we could catch up, but more than catching up I personally felt like we were practically knowing each other! It was like meeting a new member of my family. He is such an incredible person and has been in some many places. He is really awaken, enlightened and knows plenty of spiritual stuff. So we kinda made immediately a strong connection. We tried the whole dinner to talk about this awesome stuff but it was kinda difficult cause our family isn't really into this kind of things, so we had to wait and hanged out the next day to talk for hours about so many things. I must admit, that day was amazing for me, he made a great impact on my life and things started to change since that.
He opened my eyes and mind more than I thought they could be so I started looking up for ''answers'' about being awaken. And there's where Brendon <3 came up with his amazing "FREE HUGS" videos!. I was on facebook and honestly I can't remember well how I found it but I watched it and got in love with what I was looking! A guy hugging random people just to spread love and help expanding consciousness. I was so amazed that I wanted to do the same. Then I realized those hugs were more than that and that there were more "random" people doing the same shift all around the world, which it's amazing!
It has been more than 6 months since I decided to play this game too and expand my vision, my mind, everything and I feel really different from back then when I was a teenage, even from a year ago to now. This last semester at school I was able to make a video for my class and explained almost everything I've learned to not only my classmates, also to other teachers and more students. I also made shift stickers and some "FREE HUGS" signs for them and they were really receptive, I've never felt so good and in my element. That opportunity was amazing for me, even tho not everyone is so receptive or respectful, I gave many hugs and plenty of those stickers and didn't really care of "what they would say or think". That's how it has been since that (really positive results). I created this facebook page -> Paradigm Shift México - http://www.facebook.com/ParadigmShiftMexico <- to be in touch with people surrounding me and there's where I show everything I've done and share all the amazing content that I find everyday. I'm still figuring out how to create a club or meeting, I could say is still in progress cause it has been quite challenging for me to find more open minded people, but I trust and I know they'll show up and they will like to join this journey with me.
I'm playing this game in "Single Player" mode right know, but I will soon change it to "Multiplayer". I know this is why I am here and it's part of my mission. I want to be the change I'm desperate to see in my country! Cause I care about it, and I know the only way is LOVE and TRUSTing the universe and yourself, not anyone else. Yonatan taught me to keep looking, searching and to fully open my mind, and Brendon taught me to create, to change, to take actions and being an inspiration for others. They still teach me and inspire me in so many ways that I'm so grateful that they crossed into my life and that they helped me STARTING THE GAME.
I won't stop playing, I won't give up till the end. I'm a rebel, a divine being, one with the force and one with the universe, I love what I am and the most important... I trust.
I hope this story helps someone to feel part of this life shift and to reaffirm the truth about everything. To make you know you are not alone and there are many "random" people there outside that, who knows they'll may help you out too, you just got to trust, you'll find them.
Thank you so much for taking your time to read this, you are amazing!
