Five years ago my life changed. I was working in a global corporation, in a well paying job but I was becoming more and more unhappy. I knew it was time to go when I would tell people "I've quit better jobs than this!". Fortunately, I am a powerful manifestor and I manifested myself out of a job but with benefits. I got downsized.
Everything happens for a reason, so when the news came that the dept was being restructured and I would no longer have a job, I shrugged and asked about my severence package. After all, this was not the only company on the planet, there were other companies, other jobs and other opportunities out there. Besides, this happened at the same time may dad's health had taken a turn for the worse, so with a substanial severence package in hand, I didn't have to rush back into a job, I had time to help with my dad's care and recovery.
As I left the office for the last time, there was a sense of relief, freedom, happiness that I hadn't felt in a long long time. Rather than being fearful of being jobless, I was excited by the prospect of what was to come.
Part of my severence package included four months of career counselling, once a week, in a downtown office tower. Imagine my surprise at finding out my career counsellor was more like me than either of us realized. I have always been intuitive and have always used my evenings and week-ends to help others. So there I was standing in this very corporate office facing a corporate career counsellor and what I saw astounded me. She wasn't just a corporate career counsellor, she was a medical intuitive, a healer, and a shaman. Now, really, what are the odds of that?!
As we sat and discussed career options I finally had to admit that I had no desire to go back into a corporate setting. I was finally ready to step into a full time career of my own, using the abilities and knowledge I have gained and developed over literally decades of study. She simply nodded and replied "I understand". She then shared something with me, she too was leaving the corporate world in order to work as a medical intuitive and homeopath. You've just got to love how the Universe works!
With a sense of wonder and joy, I embarked on my journey. I must admit that three years ago I did not fully envision where this journey would take me or the people who would come into my life. I think it's true that we tend to limit our vision to 'small' rather than 'huge' simply because we don't want to scare the heck out of ourselves! LOL A smaller vision is more manageable, yet if you are open, that small vision is going to expand...and rapidly!
What started as a journey of using my intuitive ability, body, mind and spirit knowledge, and energy healing has turned into a passion for helping others transitition, transmute and transform their lives on all levels while still being available to help care for my dad. The best of both worlds, the ability to be of service to others and to have time to spend with those who matter most in my world. Dad's health had improved during the past three years and I was blessed to have had that time with him ~ he passed away Easter Sunday this year. His passing was peaceful and filled with the love of his family around him. I'm fortunate because even though he is gone from the physical world, I still connect with his spirit and see him in my home.
His passing is a bend in my path, so as I turn this corner and take my next steps I look towards the future while appreciating where I've come from, where I am now and where I am heading. With each step comes something new to discover. I am happy, I am healthy, I am blessed....and most of all I am Thankful for the life I have and the ability to be of service to others.
One step at a time ~ it's not about the destination ~ it's always about the journey.
