I didn't know it at the time but I had a wake up call in early 2018. What does that mean? That means the life I had up until that point stopped making sense - in an instant. Don't get me wrong it was a pretty nice life - we had lived and travelled around the world, we had a great house in a nice neighbourhood and a beautiful group of friends.
But it was as if overnight my point of view on life changed. My corporate job, which I had loved for over a decade, stopped being okay. Where I lived stopped being okay. I questioned EVERYTHING.
What is my purpose? Am I really happy? There must be more.
It turns out there is!
Finding it isn't instant.
I left my job. I sulked about leaving my job for almost a year. We house-hunted in different locations. My wonderful marriage stayed intact but it was tested as I explored my options. No longer satisfied with my lot. Despondent. Lacking direction. I couldn't put my finger on it.
I found a great wellness team in kinesiology and then I found yoga. I took small steps forward trusting that the universe had a plan in store. I just kept showing up one foot in front of the other waiting for the grand reveal.
I started studying yoga at the Biomedical Institute of Yoga and Meditation in Brisbane. Through that training I found sweet meditation. I switched courses and started studying meditation. I studied Reiki. I studied accredited crystal healing. Still waiting for it to be pieced together for the grand reveal, the big picture.
Then like a strong wind change took on its own energy. We found Toowoomba. We loved Toowoomba. Within a year we’d sold our house and moved to Toowoomba. At the same time I started studying advanced energy healing techniques using crystals to addresses physical ailments and support emotional and spiritual healing.
So here I am, this is me. I’ve given you the vanilla version of events. It was tough for a lot of times, there were many lows. I have learned that there is power and completeness in unconcealing and taking responsibility for my shadow aspects.
There have also been many victories and high-fives at the summit.
As we awaken the universe sends us mentors who have run the gauntlet and lived the journey - and flourished! Our psychic senses develop. We are shown we are on the right track through synchronicity.
Healing is hard. It is ugly. It is beautiful.
