Mom, business owner, intuitive business coach, Reiki Mater, wife – how many hats do you wear?

Being a business owner was something I always dreamed about – especially when my kids were born. I wanted to be able to stay home with them and enjoy their younger years.

However, there was a different plan for me. One that that involved relocating, working in an unfulfilling career and finding myself through spirituality.

Things don’t always work out as we plan.

When I first decided to look into starting a business, I was researching at a lot of MLM kind of companies. I was young and really didn’t care or even know about fulfillment or purpose. I wasn’t on a path of spiritual growth at that point – I just wanted to stay home with my babies.

Of course none of these worked out and instead I landed a job as a pharmaceutical sales rep. We relocated our family for the job, which was a pivotal step in my journey.

Now this was a dream job for me (or so I thought).

And as it turned out – the actual job wasn’t very dreamy but the path it led me on took me to discovering my myself and my purpose. For that – I am forever grateful.

The actual job kinda was a soul sucker for me.

I hated it all (minus the money and the flexibility). It completely deprived me of me. There was a huge disconnect between my soul and the work I was doing. But I didn’t know how to get out.

Cue life coaching …

I stumbled upon life coaching and quickly fell in love with it. I decided to hire a coach to help me figure out what in the heck was missing from my life and what I was going to do about it!

This is where my spiritual awakening really began.

Prior to this I had no idea about the law of attraction or meditation – let alone connecting with guides or healing your life. Seriously, it was all so new to me – but then again felt so at home too.

It didn’t take me long to learn that I wanted to become a coach. I decided to enroll into a training program and the rest was history – well at least some kind of history 😉

Sure I still had my full time job, but I was beginning to feel that I had a purpose – for once in my life.

I wish I could say that growing my coaching practice happened like magic – that I quickly attracted clients to me and was able to quit my job. However, that was not the case – I took the long road for sure, with tons of lessons to learn along the way.

It didn’t take long for me realize that I had no clue about business, especially marketing myself. In fact when I think back about the stuff I did, it makes me cringe – you know like adding people to an email list without permission, promoting on social media all the time – geeze it is a wonder I still have friends 😉

I quickly realized that I needed some training.

I started taking course after course that promised to make me successful. I implemented and failed each time. And with each failure I felt my dream slip further and further away.

Then I was laid off due to a downsizing and I had to come face to face with HAVING to be successful.

Cue fear …

Yes, this is where fear jumped in and never wanted to leave. I allowed fear to completely stop me in my tracks and move me into a new direction – a safer direction.

I started doing some copywriting and social media management for clients and ended up being pretty successful. However, similar to the pharma job – this business was taking me further away from my soul – from my purpose.

Cue crossroads …

I reached a point where I had to make a pretty big business decision – continue on a path that was not fulfilling but successful or risk it and move towards what fueled me and my soul and had an uncertainty of success.

Deep down I knew what the answer was – but it was up to me to move through the fear and make things happen.

Now again, I wish that I could say this part of the story was super easy too – that when I made the decision everything just fell into place. However, it wasn’t always roses and Bon Bons – that’s for sure!

Cue Reiki and energy healing …

This part was the biggest piece of my spiritual development – this was where I came face to face with me, my guides and my soul.

This was the part where I thought that maybe I was a little crazy or that people wouldn’t like me or get me.

It was hard – I am not going to lie –

However, Reiki changed everything for me. Through this work, I opened up channels that I never even knew existed. And what I discovered was that when I surrounded myself with the right support and focused on taking care of me, things shifted.

For the first time, I became super clear on what I wanted and what I needed to do next to make it happen.

Cue euphoria …

Yes the clarity was blissful –

I can’t say that I ever felt that kind of bliss before – when you feel unstoppable and you see a clear path to move forward.

When fear doesn’t hold you back.

When worries seem like a part of your history, not your current reality …

Now I am not saying that the fog or fear didn’t show up again.

Of course it did – it always does – that’s part of life.

However, because of the work I did on myself, the tools I use and the support I surround myself with, it is much easier to take care of me and gain the clarity I need to move through the fear and towards my goals.
