What do I see as being most relevant to know about me – I am here, like all of us, in this physical experience, making sense of it all and myself, finding my truth, my purpose and my gift to share, working towards Being not Doing, working towards being present more than not, working towards being the experiencer of the now moment rather than filling the moment with labels, stories and fears, working towards being ME not what I have been programmed to believe is me. What does my life look like at this time? I am currently in my forties, I have five children, three girls and two boys, my youngest is 5yrs and my eldest is 20yrs, I am in my second marriage, I have started my own business ‘From Within Healing’ and I am studying counselling at Auckland University of Technology. Writing blogs is very new to me and it feels very out of my comfort zone so it will be interesting where this takes me in my personal growth. The purpose of this post is to extend on the ‘about me’ section on the website so here is what I have in my brochure: I believe that all healing comes from within the individual, as does all dis-ease and suffering. I also believe that to heal ourselves our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual selves all come into play. Addressing these layers can facilitate a deep healing that filters through every aspect of our lives. I see my role being to hold a space and to listen, with acceptance, compassion, non-judgment and safety, where the client is allowed to BE. This space alone can begin a healing process.
My personal healing began when I got to a point of really not liking how reactive I was, as a mother and a partner. The picture I saw wasn’t what I wanted to see. Through a process of spiritual, emotional, mental and physical discovery, an unfolding took place, I started to peel back the layers of me and find out what was going on behind what I was experiencing. This created a clarity and understanding which has lead me to where I am now, in this moment.
I have been, and still am, blessed by the key people in my life who have guided me through this awakening process. I am passionate about continuing this work with myself and others: to share what I have learnt and continue to learn, to guide others, as I have been guided, to hold a light showing a way out of the darkness of suffering. I am grateful to be in a position to hold out my hand and offer my support. Blessings to you.
