As long as I can remember I have always been drawn to helping people, always the one who seemed to get what others were saying. I believed that there was a little part of me inside their story and in showing them compassion and understanding a part of me healed as well.
As a Fitness Instructor in my younger years I found myself guiding my clients through their emotional turmoil which I knew were mental blocks that prevented them from achieving their goals. My own life began with turmoil due to the ramifications of childhood abuse. In burying the experiences and emotions,
the fear shame and guilt that I had carried for decades continued to surface spontaneously throughout my life.
When the timing was right I began the process of self-healing which was empowering and beyond words. I began to find positives in even the most challenging situations life dished out for me. I went on to complete a diploma in counselling which has been a rewarding and healing journey. As I counselled something inside of me wanted to do more and give more than guidance and support . At the time I really did not know what I was looking for I guess you could say I was still seeking my life purpose. I delved deep into the studies of Human Conditioning, the Human Energy System, Re-incarnation, Metaphysical Studies, Reiki and the many ancient Healing Practices. Within this I discovered the energetic power of color, crystals, vibration and touch in relation to Healing. Awakening the Healer within. I finally understood the intimate energy connection between everyone and every living thing and how their happiness affects our own well-being.
I recall reading a quotation that resonated within me and may also with you.
THE CAGED LION
I used to roam the wilderness and knew no Fear. Some how I allowed myself to be trapped in a cage of Limitations.
I prowl the cage frightening onlookers with my pent-up anger. Or I would mope around depressed and in a daze.
How did I get caught? Perhaps I walked in freely, lured by the promise of an easy life.
I dream of running wild under the open sky. I reassess my options; comfort or adventure; predictability or newness; familiarity or exhilaration? As I look again at the cage door I realize that the door was never locked.
