MY UN-EXTRAORDINARY LIFE
Creating an energy healing practice came about quite by accident.
At the age of 50 I was thrust into a life I did not expect.
I am so grateful to have energy healing and Reiki in my life now.
Believe me, that wasn’t always the case, and when I think about the many years
of my life I was completely unaware of it, I often wonder how I survived.
My life isn't an extraordinary story...no stage 4 cancer...no near death experience, but at that time life really hit me for a six, and it was my rock bottom.
Like many, I wanted a career, marriage, my own home and a family. And I’m so grateful that I did have all of those things.
I married at 27, had two beautiful daughters.
Deep down I have always had a desire to help people. I’m an empath. And I guess that’s why I thought a career in Human Resources was the right choice for me. For over 30 years I had a very successful career as an HR Practitioner, later leading teams as an Executive Manager.
My teenage girls loved horses and we moved to our dream home farm in the Snowy Mountains with our 5 horses.
Boxes ticked – right?…so why did I feel so unhappy and exhausted?
Don’t get me wrong, from the outside anyone would think I had it all - family, successful career, no debt, great friends…and for many years I thought I did too.
I was doing exactly what I wanted, right?
But increasingly, I felt like something was missing...and I felt kinda stuck.
If I reflect back now it seemed like there was someone ‘tapping on my window’, trying to get my attention (which I continued to ignore). All the while it felt like I was pushing up against everything and everyone, which was draining any energy I had left to keep going. And I just couldn’t put my finger on it.
For the best part of my adult years ‘life’ was definitely happening TO me.
I seemed to have no control over what felt like bad luck or some kind of punishment or was it karma?
Bad stuff just kept happening to me. I kept ignoring the warning signs.
NEXT…We got sued…marriage breakdown and divorce… increased difficulty in my relationships at work…decline in my general health.
Suddenly I also realised I hated my job but felt stuck with it.
I felt so alone and numb.
I’ve always been very resilient and would dust myself off and keep going. If I drove myself harder it would all stop... it didn’t. Then I would get sick, very sick, usually repeated bouts of bronchitis that would stop me in my tracks for a month.
I remember my best friend saying to me she couldn’t believe how much ‘bad luck’ I was having.
It wasn’t bad luck.
I had shut down the parts of me that connect with my soul and spirituality. The parts that knew why I am here...my life’s purpose.
Then one thing after another happened…slowly over the next few years…to change my life.
And I realised that ‘tapping on my window’ was a calling.
HOW I GOT HERE
One day my girlfriend invited me to a seminar about ‘inner work’. I thought ‘that sounds woo woo’, but I went along, intrigued. That one instance was life changing. Not immediately, and it took me years to get where I am today, but I spent the next six months going ‘inside’ to understand myself better.
There were so many revelations! And to be completely honest, I discovered parts of me that I did not like! I embraced mindfulness and meditation, giving me a different perspective on life and well... I just tried to be more present.
Various spiritual teachers and healers came into my life, as well as people that appeared like angels to help me in some way, and this was all happening without me seeking those people. I seemed to have opened a door that wasn’t there before.
Having always known I wanted to help people, Reiki presented itself to me and I finally knew what I wanted to do.
To help others heal too.
An awakening was happening to me.
My life was gradually changing. I started to realise that happiness wasn’t outwards, it was inwards. Major lightbulb moment! Three years after my divorce I met the man of my dreams, my soul mate. I was starting to attract different people into my life, other people moved into the background…
My tribe was changing.
It seemed like the path in front of me was being cleared and that old feeling of being stuck was slowly disappearing.
I left my executive job to study energy healing and found complete joy in helping people through Reiki and other healing modalities.
We moved to Tasmania in 2018… a big dream I’d had since I was 30 years old had come true.
I am truly grateful for the energy healing I have received from my amazing teachers and other healers and for the gift of now being able to offer healing to others as a Reiki Master.
NOW AND BEYOND
Since then, and together with Reiki, other energy healing modalities have become integral parts of the way we offer healing at Soul Vie.
My passion is to share the power of energy with others...
to help you reach your goals,
for you to find ease and joy, and
to explore (with you) how to bring good energy (Qi) into your life.
That’s why I created this business SOUL VIE - it's for you.
It's about living a more connected life, the life your soul desires.
A final thought that I try to live by…
Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality.
It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics. Albert Einstein
