Wow, I honestly feel like I have been chasing my life purpose forever. My first memory of thinking about what I would do with my life was when I was 11 or 12 years old. I remember feeling incredibly sensitive to what I was seeing on the television. Everything I saw, I saw in the literal sense. The famine adds, World Vision and the like, had a particular impact. That was it, I was going to move overseas and help anyone throughout the world who needed it. I still feel this pull, but I am sure if I am meant to get there, I will.
I have always wanted to help, to give service and I am learning there are many ways to do this. It was when I had my beautiful children that I started to see life in a new, more precious light. Everything seemed all the more important and purpose became paramount. My first attempt at finding my life purpose was to become a teacher.
I was very passionate about teaching. I had worked so hard to get there and it meant the world to me. Teaching is a tough gig and a huge responsibility. You can have up to 30 little beings in your care at one time. I see now that although I was meant to have the experience and I needed the skills and everything I learned along the way, it was not the profession for me or my life purpose. How did I know this? Well, I was hurting and my health was giving way. When things seem like a constant struggle and feel as if everything is working against you, it is probably time to stop and work out what needs to change.
When I left teaching, I took with me knowledge about a broad number of topics including people, skills (make no mistake, it takes great skill to manage a classroom) and experience. For a time, after I left, I grieved all that I imagined would and could have happened. I felt lost.
Health issues motivated me to find a new way to live as you can read about in ‘What is and How I happened Upon Neuro-Training with Kinesiology’ series of blogs. In this pursuit, I started reading books by authors, such as Neale Donald Walsch, Michael A. Singer, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer and Brene Brown to name a few.
The first book I read was Conversations with God, by Neale Donald Walsch. I happened upon this book after seeing the movie with the same name. Watching that movie provoked a pivotal change in the direction my life would take. I couldn’t get enough. What I found really interesting, was that each book I stumbled upon, came at a time when I was ready to receive the message contained within. It blew my mind wide open. I am still happening on books to this day. In fact I have started finding the messages I need in many places. I receive messages through songs, blog posts, quotes and even experiences have been known to carry messages for me. There is no end to learning and growth.
My next attempt to find my life purpose was in finding Neuro-Training with Kinesiology. As with teaching, I was meant to happen upon this therapy. It highlighted the process of recuperation and I will never stop talking about the impact this has had on my life. I see that Neuro-Training is certainly a part of my life purpose, but not the crux of it.
On reflection, I can see that throughout my life, I have been very aware of my surroundings. When something happened, I knew exactly what was happening, like I was aware of the big picture from everyone’s perspective, including my own. I was constantly taking stock of all these perspectives and at times it was overwhelming and I guess I put my own perspective at the back of the pile.
This awareness and understanding of what had transpired for me in life as well as the inspiration from others who have shared their story, left me feeling compelled to share everything I had learned. I know this is my purpose because while I was working on only the Neuro-Training side of my business, nothing was moving the way I had anticipated. Sure things were falling into place but something was missing. I knew I was on the right track, I believed whole heartedly in Neuro-Training but the lack of steady flow suggested to me I wasn’t quite there.
I started getting a few clients and I can’t put into words the love I feel for these people. I have always been passionate about what I do but the passion I feel being a Neuro-Training with Kinesiology Practitioner is something else. My own journey has meant everything to me and I am beyond grateful, so to be part of other people’s special journey is truly a gift.
It is the awareness of my own recuperation through Neuro-Training with Kinesiology that puts me in a position to help others, both in clinic and by sharing all that I have learned.
It was when I started sharing what I have learned with others that the real magic started to happen. I started putting myself out there and people were interested. Things that once seemed impossible are taking place and I feel truly blessed. I am truly blessed. Image doing what you love for a living. I believe with my whole being that there is something out there for each of us, it is just a matter of listening and following that pull you feel.
