Hello beautiful souls,
It’s been a couple of months since I last wrote a blog and seeing that we are coming to the end of the year, I thought it would be a good time to sit down and write some more.
It has been a busy time for Healing Works since I took it full time in September. I’ve been busy writing a collection of poetry which is due to be published in the new year. I’ve also been spending some time reflecting on the journey so far and these are the reflections that I wanted to share with you.
This time last year, I hadn’t even made a solid decision about jacking in my job and doing what I love full time. I had a vague idea, and I talked a lot about my vague ideas. My friends will tell you this but I don’t think any of us actually thought I’d do what I did! I’m so glad I did though.
I wouldn’t say I disliked my old job, but I do have to say that being self-employed has brought with it a sense of freedom, achievement and mostly a reassurance that I am more than enough to make this work. It was almost on auto pilot that I handed in the notice, and September’s celebrations were epic!! I’ve not looked back once, and yes I’ve had the odd wobble, but all in all I don’t think I could go back to a life that is structured for me by authority.
My chosen work is not without its ups and downs, but at least it gives me the time and space to be myself. I feel now that I can breathe and explore. It has brought out all the things that were dying to make an appearance like creativity and confidence. I’ve grown to notice all the positive things about myself that I rely on to make this work. Most of all though, it has really tested my faith and my ability to rely on my own resources and know that there is a Creator up there who wants this to work just as much as I do. The realisation that God is my employer made me giggle, but it is so true. In this work, you are given time to work on yourself and your diary will go empty. As soon as you are fighting fit and ready, the heavens open and people flood to you for help. It’s taken a while to figure this out and to trust and learn my lessons in the space I have, and I can hand on heart say that this new way of being really suits me.
The most touching thing has been the clients and students that have been to see me. I am meeting the most amazing people, and the more I do for them, the more I am convinced that I have found that “thing” that I came here to do. As a result of the space and time I have to develop myself, my healing work becomes much more powerful and effective and my students get more from me as a teacher. I love being able to encourage people to go forward in the direction of their dreams. I always say to clients, “If you feel crap, or anything goes wrong, you know I am here to give you a boost but don’t let anything stop you.”
This year I have had the privilege of seeing so many people blossom in confidence and get their lives back on track as a result of sessions with me. I know I am making a difference to people and my goal for 2016 is to reach as many people as I can through my work.
I will end with the quote of the year from a beautiful soul who came to learn Reiki with me this week. I quote it because it captures the feeling of inner peace. After her Reiki session, she opened her eyes and I asked her how she felt. She said, “It’s like a drug. I want more.” Beautiful and funny.
Expect more from me in the new year as I work away over the break on a variety of different things. 2016 is going to be my year, and it could be yours too so if you need my help, I am here.

I will be back with more in the new year, but until then have a peaceful break, and you know where I am if you need me!
Love and light,
