Ever since I was a little girl I liked playing doctors and nurses.
Didn’t we all?
I was sure I was going to be a doctor or a ballerina or both since I was 4.
I’ve always been drawn to helping others and I’ve always put others needs above mine (truly working on changing that last one, but that’s another story).
I have studied so many healing techniques and modalities from Acupuncture and reflexology to kinesiology and theta healing.
I thought that helping facilitate someone’s healing is such a gift and that I’m so lucky to be doing it for a living. Now, I don’t want to take away from the magnitude of gratitude that I feel to be doing what I’m doing, but in the last few years I’ve realised it really doesn’t matter what we do for a living as long as it fulfills us in some way, shape or form and that it makes us feel like we’re making a difference.
For example –
I’m not very techy which is why it totally makes my day when a computer wizz solves an issue for me that has been a source of tremendous frustration. My life would be miserable if I had to try and solve those issues in my own. I’ve often thought how much easier my life is when I’ve got someone in charge of trouble shooting and fixing my computer glitches.
Same goes for a plumber, builder and even a chef (I am one).
Of course I could learn how to do it all myself, but I don’t have enough time in my day to learn and master everything. Whatever it is we choose to have as a profession has value, the question is what would you really like to do for a living?
What inspires you and makes your heart sing?
What makes you want to jump out of bed in the morning?
What feels light and exciting?
Don’t let fears and doubt interfere.
If you could be doing anything right now, what would it be?
If you need some more clarity, I can help you with that.
If you’re feeling very strongly that your gift to this world is to heal and help others but you don’t know where to start, I teach Body Connect Healing courses that will certify you to treat yourself and others.
