I came across a saying at a training I went to recently:
“Are you ripe and rotting or green and growing?”
I would like to think that I am still green and growing, even though chronologically am scooting through the years.
The past 12 months have provided me with some great learning moments and the highs and lows of seeking to bring more balance into my life.
Challenged by new learning systems, particularly self paced study with webinars, and not face to face contact, I managed to achieve a bit over the months. Difficult to find the balance between the detail that is required for submitting University papers and competency based questions, I probably over intellectualized each question on the Cert 4 papers that I handed in.
The few face to face trainings that I did attend were quite unlike previous lectures or workshops and high energy and at times I was quite out of my comfort zone. All good though and I came away with new skills that I am putting to use on a daily basis.
Most of the year has been out of my comfort zone and parts of it have been a bit of a blur.
Physically, I was knocked out with a cardiac event – the date is indelibly marked in my mind – Thursday 10th February 2011. Emotionally, I was overwhelmed by the support of a few special people who have held my hand as I mended my heart. Particularly painful was the realization that family were not part of the healing process either at the time of the event or after the surgical ablation in July.
A bit like Humpty Dumpty, I felt like I had fallen off the wall and couldn’t be put back together again, but my “healing team”, consisting of a Homeopath, an Acupuncturist, a Hypnotherapist and a couple of Reiki Masters all worked hard to contribute to my improved health. I will also acknowledge the Cardiologist, in that he sorted out the electrical malfunction. New friends have been made and they may not be aware of the pearls of wisdom that they have given me at different times.
The lessons that clients bring are all part of the journey. It truly is a privilege to work with them and honour their trust as they go into a hypnotic trance. Each session has its special moments and it is quite profound to see the relaxation on their faces when they finish a session. Truly a trance-formation!
So the journey continues, veering down the spiritual road now, having picked up the tools of Reiki and Polarity Therapy that I had set aside for so many years. Just recently I re-visited the EMF Balancing course that I did (OMG – that was last century!!) And having picked up these tools, I am meeting and noticing people in my life that are claiming their spirituality, acknowledging the subtle energies of the body and feeling so much better for having them in my life.
