I have been on a long journey through many different aspects of spirituality, there have been times when I felt spirit had abandoned me, but looking back it feels like the poem 'Footprints'. It has been a deep learning which will serve me well as an understanding of where others are on theirs.
I was brought up in South Africa, from the age of 7 years old, when my parents emmigrated there, seeking a better life and for me and it was, I grew to love nature as camping out in the wild was a big part of life then and animals who I often turned to as dear friends when feeling misunderstood. I know now that my animal healing abilities began back then.
HOW do we create change
We create a new story with other caring people around us, in a place that heals, soothes and brings hope, enlightenment and inspiration to move forward in a new and positive way to create healing for MEN & WOMEN WHO WANT CHANGE!
My old story - I was a person who was responsible for finding solutions for everyone else, thinking a lot of the time it was my fault when things went wrong and ‘treading on eggshells around others’. This created a platform, for everyone else, to do well, I had let go of responsibility for myself and ‘put all my eggs in their baskets’ my life was empty, like the ‘eggshells I was treading on’. Don’t, get me wrong, I loved helping others, but in the process I put me to one side because, I did not believe I had a right to put myself first, a deeply engrained gender belief. The irony is, when we put ourselves first, we create a strong healthy environment to be the best we can for others, without taking away their responsibility for themselves, but guiding them, authentically with no self-agenda.
My new story is, I am now using my experiences to create a loving, caring sanctuary for myself from the inside, this story, then helps me grow and share a loving, caring sanctuary for others and myself to grow in leaps and bounds to find out WHO THEY ARE REALLY ARE and uncover the new authentic story, of who they were born to be in this life. This creates real self-belief coming from my inner wisdom, which has always been there, just waiting to be discovered. What is your story, would you like to make adjustments?
My inner little girl can now feel free to find the fun she so deserves……………
I believe it now, I just have to be patient………………that’s the tough bit.
