To attract what you truly deserve, you have to feel that you deserve it

To attract what you truly deserve, you have to feel that you deserve it. Lately, I’ve been working to try and reach more people and that’s because I know I can really make a difference. I know there’s more to do and I’ve been trying to get to the bottom of this so I thought I’d share my thinking on this with you.

So I know that I have a real impact on people’s lives. I know that healing has helped make massive leaps for people’s careers. I’ve helped people come back from absolute rock bottom. I know that there’s some clients who literally trust me with their lives. I know that I’ve helped people avoid being on prescription drugs and even helped some people to come off them. I know I’ve helped people become confident and assertive. I know I’ve helped people overcome their fears of intimacy. I know I’ve helped people make sense of their spiritual journey and taught them how to work on themselves. I’ve seen people grow and blossom in front of my eyes. I’ve helped people to take charge of their own destiny and given them the perspective that’s helped them to believe that everything is possible.

The list is endless and you’d think that this would be enough evidence for me to believe in myself, right? Well, I’m going to be really honest here and say that I’ve only just started to understand the difference I make to people’s lives and I’m still battling with this. Empaths start on a much lower self-worth level to others in my opinion and it takes a lot to climb to that place where you truly believe in your gifts.

I had a lovely client come in the other day and something he said will stick with me forever. He said, “You can say that your work is rewarding and real satisfaction and that you make a real difference. People will remember you for what you did for them.” I tried to stay cool, but inside my heart dropped a little because I’d not taken that perspective. I usually just bumble along, shrug off the praise and get on with the job. I hadn’t really been listening or taking on board the nice things that people have said because perhaps I didn’t feel that I truly deserved it. I always focus on what else there is left to do and this made me stop and take stock and really appreciate what I have.

I know that when people tell me how much I’ve helped them with the sessions we’ve had together, I still have a hard time accepting the praise. It’s like I still can’t quite believe that I’m doing this.

It takes an awful lot to step up and accept all of who you are. I’m finding this as I battle my way through it. I talk a lot about working with the shadow aspects, but this is like another form of shadow that we also need to work with. Being able to see and accept what you’re putting in to world and the positives it brings is a beautiful thing. What happens is that we think of this as Ego and retreat in to being humble. I know this is what I’ve been doing and actually as a result, I’m not getting what I truly deserve because I don’t truly believe I deserve it.

This is one of the things that I’m trying to set about changing in myself because it’s part of my self-sabotage pattern and I know I’m fed up of living that pattern. In my bones, I feel that it’s time to step up and really be visible about the work that I do. I’m building my confidence. I’m getting better at accepting praise and I’m really listening and allowing the evidence to show me that this journey is well worth the graft. Look at what I can do – it’s magical but in the daily grind, the magic gets lost and forgotten. I want to be the person that still believes in the magic!

It can be overwhelming, but I’m learning that actually praise and kind words are how people are showing love and appreciation. I have to keep my heart open to this love. It doesn’t mean it’s going to my head and it doesn’t make me any less humble. It’s quite a difficult and new concept to me to be able to celebrate the good things that I have put in to the world and be proud of what I have achieved. It’s actually quite scary!

I’m conscious not to take anything for granted because I know where I came from. At the same time, I understand that if I am overwhelmed by it, I’m not in complete acceptance of it. It’s an interesting dilemma because the Ego is shouting “Be humble!” and at the same time you’re at the point where you can’t deny the evidence that’s put before you.

The trick is to define your own sense of identity because there is strength in having that sense of self. The Ego is the false identity and when it screams “Be humble!” at you, it is one of the ways in which it is holding you back and keeping you in the limitations that you’ve been taught.

I never really recognised this fully before now and working with it has been really challenging. I can say in my own mind I believe I make a difference and I’m starting to accept the evidence as real. Remember how deep set the ego ideas and beliefs are.

Defining your own sense of self takes time. I’ve been on this journey a while and I’m still finding false selves and as each mask falls away, it enables me to become more authentic, more real and more confident in my own definition of who I am.

I don’t want to be what I’m taught I have to be in this world. I don’t want to have limitations and restrictions placed on me.

I want to be able to share and celebrate the fullness of who I am. I want to believe that I can attract what I deserve. I want to believe that I truly deserve it.

If any of this resonates and you’re on the path trying to find ways to become who you came here to be, please get in touch with me. I love working with opening hearts and minds to all the possibilities!

What has Hafsa been up to?

So those of you who know me know how passionate I am about working with women. Over the last 4 or 5 years of doing this work, I’ve seen so many women grow from being shrinking violets to roaring go getters! It’s amazing and extremely rewarding to see this happening.

I’ve built up and awesome toolbox of teachings over the years that I’m so excited to share with you and so I have started work on a number of home study courses!

The courses will bring together the best of the work that I do with my clients, and include so many practical things for you to start doing the work on yourself.

A lot of people talk about “working on myself” and I think that’s brilliant so I wanted to give you a head start with this and help you as much as I can.

I am really buzzing about the modules, and the first one is all about building self-esteem has just been published so please do go and check it out!

I’m working on a whole load more so bear with me as it’s really challenging my organisational skills! I’m so pumped though and I’m loving the sharing and the teaching aspect of this work.

As well as building Self-Esteeem, I’m going to be working on all of the content from The Empowered Woman coaching programme and so this is well worth looking at if you’d love to have coaching, but perhaps you don’t have the money to invest in one to one coaching.

It’s also really good if you want to take things at your own pace. I know my One to One sessions are pretty full on and so this just breaks it all down and you can do it in your own time, and take it at your own pace. The exercises and the practical work are something that I know you will purchase once, but then use again and again. That’s the beauty of teaching!

I’d say it’s well worth the investment as the content is on point! The modules coming up are:

  • Learning how to say NO! – Great for you people pleasers out there that find it really hard getting out of doing stuff you don’t want to do!
  • Mindfulness and Meditation – this one is a great intro for those of you who want to really get in to meditation and reduce your stress levels!

I’ve got a couple of big ones planned for the Summer, but I don’t want to give too much away!

Please do check out the modules, and if you have any questions, please get in touch with me! The same goes for any content that you’d like to do a course on because I’m open to creating the courses that are going to help you the most!

The ripple effect….

Once you wake up, you know nothing is ever going to be the same again.

Once you are on the healing path, you know that you can never go back.

Once you start looking, more comes up to be healed.

I did my Reiki Master/Teacher about 4 years ago and I have been teaching ever since then. I just want it to be known that the healing process hasn’t ended.

We don’t reach a certain point of enlightenment and are “fixed” – far from it. Our souls are infinite and reach eons before our bodies were created. There is so much in there to be seen and felt, and the goal is learning.

If we stop learning, we stop living. Healing is a way to learn who you have become, but also a way of accessing who you came here to be.

Many of my clients go on to learn Reiki so that they can do their own self-healing and begin their own transformation. Many of these clients that became students have gone on to become healers and begin their own path of helping people. It makes me immensely proud.

My goal with teaching is to help more of you make a difference in this world. Not just for yourself, but for the people around you. I believe the more help is out there, the more people we can reach.

When I started out on this journey, the goal was to create a ripple effect and I see it happening and in full force with the people that I have had the pleasure of teaching. I am amazed and have a great deal of respect and admiration for my students. They are making a big difference in the world, and that is what it is all about.

Healing Works is about empowering you to make a difference. You don’t have to become a healer, but when you begin healing yourself, one day you will come across someone who reminds you of you. You’ll pass on what you know, and empower them to make a change in their world.

This is the ethos of my work. Yes it is a business I run, but it is a very heart centred business. It is me sharing everything that is in this soul in order to leave a legacy. It is here to change lives for the better. To give a voice to those who don’t have one. To help, to support and mostly to empower.

Healing makes us stronger. When we are strong, we can help others to heal. When we heal, the world becomes our playground. Life becomes magical when we have purpose and a means to deliver that purpose.

Whatever that means for you, even if you are not sure, I want to help you find it. If you are being called to healing, to Reiki or to the spiritual path, please do get in touch because I would love to hear from you!

Legacy

We don’t get a second chance at life. Tomorrow is not a guarantee. I wrote this in memory of someone close to me that I lost.

It’s always good to be reminded that what you put in to the world is your legacy. Character is a choice we make, and when you take nothing for granted, you make the best of everything.

Legacy

When everything is gone,
What will you remember?

Who were you?
What did you give?
How did you serve?

Did they run from you?
Did they run to you?

Were your words your prayer?
Or was the prayer your life?
