Oh my goodness, I'm so glad to be back with all of you on another episode of when Spirit calls, as you've heard, we've got the lovely Sheri Bentley in the house. Hello, Sheri.Sheri Bentley:
I am so excited that you're here today. And I have, you know, I haven't known you for a really long time. But I have loved being graced with your presence every time I get to experience an interaction with you. So I'm so excited for everyone to feel that grace to.Sheri Bentley:
Thank you.DeeAnne Riendeau:
You're so welcome. So Sheri, I like to start things off on this show by inviting my guests to share a bit of their story so that people can get to know them and the listeners can understand a little bit about where they came from, and where they're going. So can you start us off by just sharing a little bit of your background, maybe a bit of your story and how you came to be because, you know, now you're this magnificent human being that sharing her light in the world. And I would really love for the audience to know how that all came to light.Sheri Bentley:
Yeah, absolutely. So I guess my story, I'll say begins about five years ago. I was really, you know, I'd spent most of my life following everyone's recommendations for how you're supposed to live your life and be a good person. And regardless of my efforts for that I just could not get my personal life together. I found myself in a place where I completely was disconnected from myself, I was in a really unhealthy relationship with a narcissist too. I'm an empath. So if you know anything about the dynamics of that, too, it was really explosive. Um, and I really just was lost. I mean, I was disconnected from who I was, from my spirit, I had no desire to really move forward in my day, but like so many others, like, every day, I got up and put on my happy face and did the best I could. So on the outside, it didn't really appear to anyone that there was anything wrong or going on. But on the inside, I just felt like I was done. I was dead. And I guess that was kind of a period of time, like some synchronicity started happening. I happen to find a note from my dad that he had written me like when I was six or seven. And it reminded me of who I was like, before I started changing primary one that reminded me of my joy for life and my spark and how I could see the best and everyone and I loved and nurtured back and it just really reminded me of myself. And that really kind of set me I don't know, it gave me that point that I can really start looking back and going okay, well, what happens? Go because I can't find or anymore. She's disappeared. Where is she? So I really started kind of going inward and you know, meditating and trying to find stillness and doing that inner internal search. And kind of along that way, I came to the realization that I couldn't heal in my relationship because it was really dependent on me not being well and not being healed. And so I was kind of bad at Play so that I didn't have the resources to restart my life. And I really liked it felt trapped again. So the funny story is like I went afternoon at a convenience store, I purchased a lottery ticket. And truly I had like $2 in my hand had no idea what a lottery ticket was or which one to buy. I asked the clerk to pick a good one for me. And I took that lottery ticket to a park. And I prayed over that ticket. And I said, Oh, dear God, you know, if you can, you know how we bargain, like, if you can, please give me so that I can start over again, I promise you won't have the courage this time to step out and really do it. And so I prayed and pray and finally scratched off the ticket and I won, I won the lottery, oh, my gosh. I went to the dollars.DeeAnne Riendeau:
Hey, $50 is 50 ohms. You?Sheri Bentley:
The first lesson is to be very careful when you're manifesting to clarify whatDeeAnne Riendeau:
kind of audit an extra few zeros, right?Sheri Bentley:
Spirit does have a sense of humor. But I laughed and I cried. And I realized, you know that that was the first time that I had laughed in years. And it really gave me that spark of inspiration to trust in in sphere. But again, so I thought, Okay, if you can keep your end of the bargain, I can keep, you know, to put this in a bank account, I'm gonna get a second job, I want to build out that nest egg. And then when I have enough, I'll move out, you know, I can do this. And that was my plan. And less than a week after that. I was standing in the living room one afternoon, and everything was just, you know, erupting like a jet every afternoon. And I just felt this warm press that's come over me like this lie. Mom is like, it sounds so cliche. But I mean, it was like this blind. I felt like the angel's wings just wrapped in the in this, like, safe. Bubble. And I just took a deep breath. And just as calmly as we're talking, I just said, I'm sorry, I can't do this anymore. This isn't the life I want to live. Oh, that's and I had no idea how. Because my job was to financially support me. I had no savings, I had no car, we just moved to a new city. I didn't know anyone. I had no idea how I was going to survive. But I knew at that moment that that sense of peace that came over me was all that I needed.DeeAnne Riendeau:
All you need is really when I just I want to pause for a moment, though, because you've said is such beautiful parts of your story here. And I just was covered in goosebumps, as you spoke about these like Angel Wings wrapping around you and I could feel the presence of the angels in that moment. And I just want to bring that to the surface for the audience to allow them to soak that in. Because I think sometimes we forget that we are being supported and being held and that we are being led. And so this is just one of those beautiful examples of you, you know, not only was it this lottery ticket that you made a promise that lottery ticket you said, Okay, if you if I win, you know, I'm going to have the courage to leave. But then it was reinforced by this beautiful presence of grace and of peace and of knowingness for you to step forward. And I know that for a lot of people, you know, they get caught up in their own mind, you know, trying, okay, how am I going to leave? What is it going to look like? You know, what is that process? What, what do I need to be doing? And have it all figured out before we take the leap? And sometimes we just need to trust and that's what you did. So I wanted to celebrate what you did there and having the courage to trust.Sheri Bentley:
Yeah, thank you. You know, people often ask me like, Oh, that was so great that you had so much courage. But actually, it didn't feel brave. That felt easy. It felt brave staying in the environment, and it was in interest. So it felt brave to have the courage to stay in that place where I was so disconnected, reconnecting with my energy of Spirit, and coming into that was just freeing to me. And I knew in that moment, like, I didn't have anything, and I knew that I had everything that I needed. Yes. And it's true. I mean, miracles just opened up before me. And I made that commitment. You know, like, I knew that if I could keep that connection, and that sense of peace, and stay in the state of gratitude, that everything else would work out. Yeah, it did. And I'm not saying it was easy like the first job I work I mean, Last year were like five jobs, but I loved them. And they all work together, you know, our schedule, because it was like I was, it was just a completely new lease on life, I was just really free. And when I failed, and what I've discovered is like any other, it's really easy to have faith. It's really surrender, because we don't have any control. And we don't have any other options that as my life started getting better, and and all these OPT, all of a sudden I had options and opportunities and choices. That's where I started to feel that disconnection. And I made that commitment, like in that moment, that every time that I started to feel that disconnection, instead of pushing through or getting in that state of anger, or worry and anxiety, with step back and find out what within me, was causing those energies to arise. That's how I really started my internal healing is really every time something would arise that step back, okay, what is this message? Was it bringing to me? What within me? Do I need to look at what within me do I need to heal what within me don't really need to become cleaner, and understand how that's impacting my daily actions? And you know what,DeeAnne Riendeau:
I was just gonna say, I love that this was a process for you in in that you allowed and honored, whatever it was that was coming up to say, hey, it's coming up for a reason, rather than me stuffing it away or pushing it aside or becoming disconnected, I'm going to face it, I'm going to, I'm going to look at it, I'm going to say I see you and I'm going to, I'm going to learn whatever I need to out of the experience that is alchemy, and its finest. So I love that for you and for the listeners to to be able to incorporate that rather than being afraid of that energies or pushing those energies down or whatever we do. Facing it is is the key, isn't it?Sheri Bentley:
Yeah. And then I started to look at, you know, why am I the way that I am? You know, because my relationships where I've been hurt society, I started really uncalled process of reconciliation, like, you know, this is what I've learned and feel great to me. Because if it doesn't feel true to me, is creating that discord between the two. So I went through a process of really healing that and what I found was, it's a lot easier to think sat and heal the things that have been done wrong to us, or the ways that we've been hurt. But it's more challenging when we start really reconciling, like our mentors and people that have really shaped us, that was doing it from a good place. And because they really cared about it and loved us, that they're shaping and molding of us was not really in alignment with who we are as his soul is our spiritual self. So even that creates that discord. Yeah. So going through all of this process, really, the more I say it's like surrendering, discovering, and then integrating, and then which takes you back into surrendering. Just one timeDeeAnne Riendeau:
Over and over. It is a process that we go over and over again. So I love that you said this reconciliation piece. Because I want to really speak to that. And if you said well, it's easy, you know, it almost seems easier to reconcile, you know, with with people that have kind of, you know, you can identify that they have done you wrong, it's like, okay, they've done me wrong. And I can see that. And here's the forgiveness. It's more challenging to not only see it in ourselves, and to reconcile within ourselves, but I think about even my own parents who I love deeply and who are amazing parents, but also they did some things that programmed me in a certain way to have some challenges along the way. And that almost can be more difficult because it's a little more hidden, right? It's a little more subtle. It's not in your face of like, oh, maybe I do need to reconcile that. Right? Was I holding some resentment towards these people that I love not knowing?Sheri Bentley:
I think it's harder to reconcile it because it does come from a place of love. And in addition to that, you really have to take responsibility for giving your power away.DeeAnne Riendeau:
Yeah, yes.Sheri Bentley:
Because you're when you know, by doing that you are acknowledging, oh, they know better for me than what I truly know is true for me. So it's really that deeper reconciliation within yourself and that forgiveness of yourself for giving your power willingly away to someone. It's almost like that self betrayal that you have to really come to terms with.DeeAnne Riendeau:
Yes, and I love that you bring that up because as, you know, I think I spent a lot of my life being angry at myself for not doing this thing and not knowing that and not knowing better over here, you know, I don't think I'm alone in that, right. You know, I think we all move through that. And for me in particular, I was raised as a Catholic, so, to feel bad and to feel guilt and shame was a requirement for reconciliation. And, and it's not, though it's not, that was just what we were taught and again, condition. So I had to even reconcile my process of reconciliation, if you will, right. I had to forgive myself for seeing that as the way and the only way to move through things and and start letting that go and to not be carrying a lot of those burdens I was carrying. So I love this idea of reconciliation and understanding the power of it, you know, the power of forgiveness for self and for others. And, and do you want to elaborate on that anything else you want to add to that? That piece?Sheri Bentley:
Just you know, what I found is like, the more that I that I was able to reconcile reconcile myself or you know, get rid of that that discord within myself. I began to open up deeper to my spirituality so my spiritual gifts started really coming online. My intuition got really really high. Do you know what synchronicities all of these things? It's like this beautiful magic like by unbecoming who you have become, you become yourself? Yeah,DeeAnne Riendeau:
Yeah, it is. It's kind of like that, where it's, you know, I think it is, I like to call it a remembering who we are. Yeah, you know, and remembering who we really are, right. And, you know, as we move through life, we get this conditioning, and we get this belief, and we get this conditioning and this belief from over here, and whatever, we go our path, and then all of a sudden, we're like, wait a second, this isn't even who I think I am maybe isn't who I really am. And now it's this kind of unlearning process, if you will, almost right. It's a deprogramming of all of that, which maybe isn't so true, even though you thought it was true this whole time. And that process is tricky, because we have this thing called cognitive dissonance, which I'm sure you can relate to and understand. But cognitive dissonance is going back to, I want to hang on to this thing so deeply, because I believe it to be true. And so even if someone told shows me evidence against that, I don't want to admit that I don't know what I'm doing, or I was wrong. And so we get caught in that narrative or that lie. And many people are struggling with that right now. So this is just an opportunity to bring that to the surface, again, for our listeners to remind them, that if you think something is true, that there is opportunity for you to see also other truths or aspects of truth as well. And to not be afraid of being mad at yourself, because you thought, you know, something was true, that wasn't but to rather appreciate and celebrate that you have that recognition, that things can change, and we can change our perception.Sheri Bentley:
Yeah. You know, I talk about, you know, the beginning started with this unhealthy relationship that I was in, and my healing journey, I've come to the place of not only being grateful for being in that environment, and being in that relationship, but also understanding my role in that, and how my energy helped create that, because we're all living in a co creative process, to how I really contributed to that, and how that wounding was, was for my best self. Because it was showing me and giving me the courage and pushing me to where I had the capability of really going within and looking at my shadow and really reconnecting with who I truly am. So, so often, I think, you know, healing is tough, woundedness tough, these things are really difficult to look at. But if we can see them for the gifts that they are in our lives, that give beautiful gift to do, ality that gives us that opportunity to really see and experience and feel the other side of who we truly are. It really changes our ability to to move through this.DeeAnne Riendeau:
It really does. And I love that you brought that to the surface because this idea that you were able to take this, you know, experience this partnership that you had, and see it as this catalyst for you this gift as you called it, you know, this catalyst of deeper discovery and saying wait a second, that's not right for me. I'm going to change this. I'm going to do some of this work and see what how pins, I think if you would have stayed in that relationship, you know, eventually that would have worn you down. And of course, you would still be in a state of despair. But how beautiful is it that it wasn't that and then the fact was a catalyst for you to come into this new state of being this new state of remembering who you are? Because now you're never going to go back into a relationship like that again. You know, you've come full circle. Yeah.Sheri Bentley:
Yeah. So you know that that was like the first phase of like, my healing journey, which really, you know, I joke, like, once you hear the spirit, or once you hear your soul whisper like, you can't unhear it. Like, two, two years, I guess, into my journey. And it's a really good place, I was working one job and I really loved you know, having had all of the things and reacquired all the things that I just walked away from. And I received this message or this nudge to travel to Ireland. I've never traveled internationally that I booked a trip I was gonna go for, like 10 days by myself, when a great friend of mine convinced me that wasn't a good thing to do. And she joined me on my trips, and the two of us went for two days. And it was just an amazing trip. And I really connected so deeply to the land, I felt so creative there. There's so many sacred sites that just really activated me in a way that I can't even put into words, still this day, that we returned from that trip. And I felt like I had left the best part of me there. There was not a thing that was calling me. And I don't know if it's because she joined the trip. And I didn't go solo. But I felt like the reason I was being called there wasn't completely fulfilled, Ah, interesting. And I started having these synchronicities and receiving signs from spirit. Like when I meditate, there was always this symbol in my meditation, or that with C. And I kept thinking, like, I gotta go back, I gotta go back. One day, I was looking at some rocks that I'd picked up with Ireland, and the symbol that I was seeing in my meditation that's actually etched into the rock. And there was like, so many synchronicities and things like this. And long story very short. within a period of a month of of returning from Ireland, I quit my job, I sold everything that I just re acquired so that I could go back to Ireland for three months. It was the best thing that I've ever done, I was able to really come fully into myself. So many of us spiritual guests who have been coming online energy working with energy and things like that, I really felt like I had one foot one more than one foot in that other world hearing, and not really sure how to merge them all together, that the landscape in Ireland really spoke to me and activated me and I was able to work with a Leyland's there and work with a grid and really awaken and what an ancient wisdom and need that had just been really really so I think from that experience, I could sum it up and like the night before I was to fly back to Ireland. I was had said goodbye to my friends and family because in my mind, I was not coming back this was so swear I had to be aware I had to go and that was like coming back. It just chopped off my car that I had sold. I quit like I quit my job that hadn't had the last goodbye dinner and I walked back into my apartment is completely stret I go into the bedroom everything's gone except my two suitcases I'm taking I'd saved a candle and a bubble bath and an inset that that was going to be my last bath before I even went to sleep and can't claim the next morning so as I'm lighting the candle lighting the incense getting jolly my bat for this relaxing bubble bath I completely lost it like cry like the realization of what I just just like hit me like I am giving up everything I'm going to this country for I know absolutely no one chipping away all everything that I've just acquired that my future my way of living the best job I've ever had everything like you know and I was just like in this you know, you've had the crisis where you're just that the Haven cries like call it weapon and have the you know, can solve it Because I had asked him initiated I'm doing this and I remember like getting in the tub and I'm crying, sobbing again, the tub and I'm sitting in the bathroom floor, you know, when there's just a towel wrapped around me and I'm just like, went on. And all of a sudden, I notice where this instance had was burning is coming up in like little smoke, smoke. So you know how you could smoke circles or whatever. But the shapes were forming hearts. So the smoke would go up, and it would go, and it would dance and it was a form of heart, and then it would just fade away and the hearts were always my sign from Spirit, then I'm on the right path. So I watched it like for, you know, three or four minutes, and then my sobbing is like, okayDeeAnne Riendeau:
Am I okay? Yeah.Sheri Bentley:
Okay, I'm okay. Now, this is fine. This is true. You know, I'm not just like, giving up everything, all these crazy little subtle energies that I'm picking up on that may or may not be real, this is real, you know, I'm really supported here. And I get up and walk over to where the incense was burning. And it's completely out. There is absolutely no reason why smoke should be coming from this little stick that stickingDeeAnne Riendeau:
Ooh goosebumps.Sheri Bentley:
Like, it's always like, if we when we kind of when we calm down, and we can just really tap into that energy in the answers are always there. For us that guidance is always there for us for those breadcrumbs, like I like to call it is always there. But it's that and like you said, that ability to get out of your head into your heart and just open ourselves to be able to receive that.DeeAnne Riendeau:
Oh, I love this story. So much Sheri. And I love that, you know, it was creating these hearts out of smoke when it shouldn't have been smoking at all. Those are the best, right? Because it's this validation of spirit. And it reminds us that it's, it's always there. It's up to us whether we want to see it, you know. So obviously, you went and you had this incredible journey and this healing process. And now you're in a place where you actually help other people to move through this. And so can you tell people a little bit about that, and how that kind of came to light? You know, because I mean, you you quit your job, you let go of all the things you really cleared house literally. And so how did you end up in this space of like, Oh, my goodness, I'm actually supposed to do this for other people.Sheri Bentley:
Yeah. So I started opening up to energy. And so I got into doing energy work and Reiki healing and realized that I can really, you know, I am gifted at doing that and moving in an alkalizing energy, then I also realize that it's not my responsibility to alchemize and change and right energy for everyone else. In content. Unless we do it internally, ourselves. We're not really benefiting from the healing. So I started weaving in spiritual life coaching with my energy healing. And my mission is really delayed others to claim their own spiritual sovereignty, whatever that may look like or feel like to them, that it's just reconnecting with our own divinity. And their sacred relationship with line with mail is what I've found. And what I've discovered is, you know, this inner world that really determines everything in our lives, how we feel, what we think what, how we create. It's been a lost art of learning how to reconnect with that, and how to listen to that, and how to really understand your own energy and what's influencing you and to be able to really lean back into that internal guidance. So I've worked with people to help them lean back into that internal guidance to really rediscover who they are and find their own way. Because I think that's the beauty. It's not following someone else's guidance is being able to use our own discernment and be able to find our own way.DeeAnne Riendeau:
I love this because it sounds to me like what you're saying is that you teach people to become their own guides to trust in their own inner knowing their own compass. And this is this is what I love to do as well because I want people to have the tools for them to do it themselves. We don't have to look outside of ourselves. But sometimes we need that support. work to kind of get us there to lean into that trust. And I love that you're doing this work because I think we're at a time in the world where we are being called deeply to spirit. So people are having all of these epiphanies and waking up and they're saying, I don't know what the heck to do, like, Am I going crazy? Am I lost? Do I need to go to Ireland or Bali or go wherever.Sheri Bentley:
You know, what I have found is like, each of us have to find, we need to find our own way, we need to find that sovereignty within ourselves, to be able to have our own discernment to understand how our gods speak to us, because it's different for everyone is different from every individual. So, but what I have found is all that we have to find our way ourselves, we don't have to find it solidarity, like we we can have people to support us, Sam, when you're working with someone that can hold you in a space, that is unconditional love as a space where it's safe, and can bring light in and help you face your shadow and your darkness. It really helps your healing process, you go a lot faster and a lot more graceful than if you're doing it alone.DeeAnne Riendeau:
Yes, I agree. It's it will expedite the process, reduce the suffering, what I mean, the list goes on in terms of the benefits of that, in that guidance and that support externally of us, but also reminding people that they have the answers within them. And sometimes we just need someone to help them to shine the light on that. And I think that's a big role that you have is shining that light. So okay, we've got you know, a bit of your story, at least sharing. So and you did allude to kind of some of the steps that you went through, you know, you talked about surrendering and reconciliation, but say somebody is out there, and they're like spirits, nudging them, and maybe they're nudging them to go to Ireland, or maybe they're nudging them to quit their job or leave a marriage that's not serving them, whatever it might be on the table for them. What are some of the things that you would want to highlight as some takeaways for them to be able to move the dial? What does that maybe look like? Especially if they don't have this like, angelic kind of experience of safety? or what have you? What What would you suggest to them? If they're in that, like that purgatory about making a decision? Do I stay? Do I go whatever that is?Sheri Bentley:
Yeah, I think that the one thing that I find the most helpful is, if you can get yourself on your you're not reacting from a place of fear, right? Because fear is so, so powerful. Yeah. And it, it traps us and it keeps us stuck in this place where we can't move, we can't move. So I think if you can get really clear and identify like, you know, if you're making a decision, you know, what is keeping me from that is it is it fear and then be able to face that that's really important. Yeah. And then the other thing that I'll say that I truly believe in is on trust in the lane, that we are all exactly where we're supposed to be on our path. And when we can settle in, and to fall into that and realize that whatever decision we made, whatever way that we go, is not detrimental to who we are in our path. It just determines the experience that we're going to have. And maybe it's a detour, or maybe it's getting you to where you need to go. But really being able to release that fever and go, Okay, I'm feeling this, you know, I'm feeling this, I want to do this, or I want to do that, or I feel I should leave or I feel I should make this decision. Instead of being trapped there. Just really embrace the possibility of like, okay, and knowing that if you're tuned in to yourself, and you're following that guidance, you can always pivot. You know, if you get there and you go, oh can always pivot, and you haven't lost anything by tagging that stand up. Because there's always something there's going to be enrich your life by having that experience. So I think maybe that someone thing is like, don't get trapped into the fear. And don't be so afraid to make a step. Because if you get there and it's not what you think or not what you want to experience or if you get there and you know it, you can always pivot you can always change. I mean, as humans, we think that everything is so perfect, and we have to have it figured out and we have the journey is sometimes in those places that we didn't think we were supposed to endDeeAnne Riendeau:
Ah, so I love this. And I want to speak to it a little bit here because I do believe that fear is actually a gateway for us. So if we're experiencing fear coming up with making a decision, we can use that fear and leverage that fear to say, oh, okay, what is this really about right and have a deeper discovery and that, but not only that, when we face that fear, what happens is we break through this beautiful into the other side space, you know, on the other side of fear. And on the other side of fear, there was there is empowerment, there is grace, there is love, there was all of these things available to us that we can then receive for whatever that decision is that we made. So that's the brilliant part, and then adding to that, reminding us that we're exactly where we need to be always. So even if you make a decision, and you step down that path on that decision, and then you realize, oh, no, wait a second, whoa, whoa, whoa, what a beautiful opportunity is for you to recognize with with certainty, that that's not the path, and then an opportunity to redirect. So no matter what, you're going to end up where you need to be, because you're already exactly where you need to be in the first place. You know, even those wrong pathways, you know, I say to my daughter, who gets really worked out when she asked to make a decision, you know, she's 12 years old. And so every decision feels really big, right? And so she's like, Mom, what if I make the wrong choice? And I said, it's impossible to make the wrong choice. Every choice is the perfect choice in that moment. And if you make the choice, and you get into it, and you realize that it's not what you want. Well, thank goodness, you made that choice to show you that wasn't what you wanted. Right? So I love that. I love that. Okay, I don't know where time has gone. But these always just go by so fast. And I feel like we're just getting started. But I think we've given you know, the listeners some some food for thought at least. Can you recap what your process was, though, when you went through you, you went through you surrendered? You reconciled? And I think there was something else there. And I just want to recap that.Sheri Bentley:
Yeah. Surrendering discovery, discovery, yes, integration or alignment, creation, and alignment. And then that kind of takes you back to discovery.DeeAnne Riendeau:
Yeah, so you can kind of go through the cycle there. And I think it's interesting to make note of those. So people as they're going through their process, the you know, again, they're going through a discovery, right, that discovery, oh, what can I find here? What can I explore here rather than, Oh, my God, my life is this and it is this? It is, I wonder, you know, I love that energy of I wonder, I wonder what this looks like, I wonder what else I can learn from this. I wonder what else I can experience in this. And then of course, going through that process of saying, Okay, now what do I need to adjust here to make sure that I'm on track and I'm aligned, right. And then again, going to that surrendering place again, and then cycling back around. So I just love that as a process for people. So Sherry, any final words before we wrap up, I mean, obviously, I want people to be able to find you. So if you would share that, we'll put that in the show notes for the listeners as well. But any final words from you?Sheri Bentley:
Yeah, my final thought if I, I would share in that I wish everyone truly understood as, like today, my life is so different than it was five years ago, because in five, five years ago, I was living in a state of fear. You know, always in chicken, little land, you know, where the sky was always falling, everything was always wrong, everything in that space. And today, I'm live in a space of love and gratitude and peace. And the only thing that has changed has been my internal compass. I'm going in the same world, I'm in the same place, the only thing that's really changed is my internal compass. And that's so powerful, because we each have the ability to make those changes, regardless of what circumstances we're in, in our life. Yes, and it changes everything.DeeAnne Riendeau:
It really does change everything. And we have the power to choose that folks, that's the good news is that we get to decide that for ourselves, if we're willing to make those tweaks and adjustments, right. And, and so I love that. I love that as a closing for us here today. Because it reminds us that we can be anywhere we want to be. I can be somewhere totally different in five years, even in one year from now, if I'm willing to move that internal compass if I'm willing to look and remember who I really am. Right, yeah. Oh, it's beautiful. So Sheri, where did they go to find you?Sheri Bentley:
So you can find me on my website it's sheri. And this is the only time the spelling matters. sheribentley.com.DeeAnne Riendeau:
Beautiful, and we're gonna put that in the show notes. So you guys have it, Sheri, thank you. It has been such a joy to be with you. As I mentioned at the beginning, you bring this level of grace to the surface. And so thank you for gracing us with your presence today. And until next time, everyone, I hope you come back to see us and be with us on our next when Spirit calls. We'll see you next time.Sheri Bentley:
