Owning who you are...
Owning who you truly are is not an easy thing to do. Can you honestly say that you are 100% owning who you truly are?
Half the time we don't even know who we are because we have been taught and conditioned to be a certain way, do certain things and to be who everyone else wants and expects us to be. Have you ever felt that way?
I know I have. I grew up always wanting to keep everyone else happy, doing what was expected of me and what I thought was expected of me and most of the time that was exactly how it was.
The problem with doing that is that we lose ourselves along the way, we just don't know it until we are older. The more we do for everyone else the deeper and deeper we lose ourselves. If we are lucky though, there is a part of as that niggles away telling us that we need to be doing something else, something more and we rebel just a little and we eventually fight for and listen to that niggle.
How we eventually achieve this, is that we have continuous 'growth spurts'. Yes that is what I said, 'growth spurts'. Even as adults we have 'growth spurts'. They are not physical anymore like it was when we were children but mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
These 'growth spurts' we go through are what lead us to finding who we truly are. They present to us situations and experiences that create growth for us and when that happens we learn a little more about ourselves each time so that eventually we start to discover who we truly are and we eventually begin to own it.
Since 2004 I have been known as RELAX ME, Mind - Body - Soul and it has suited me very well and I have loved every minute of it. The thing is, I was hiding behind a business name. I remember my husband saying to me when I was trying to pick my name, that I really should just go by my name, especially since I was planning on the business only being me.
I've always been shy and have always hated being the center of attention, so I'm sure you can imagine how difficult it was for me to even think of putting MY name out there and having nothing to hide behind! Truth is, I wasn't ready to be me.
As many of you will be able to relate, life changes in ways we don't always expect, life goes on and we are always presented with ways to grow as a person, enter the 'growth spurt'.
Needless to say I have since been presented with plenty of opportunities to grow and each opportunity has lead me to the point where I finally feel like I am the person I am meant to be and that I am doing what I was always meant to do.
In 2004 I began my business as a massage therapist and have loved every single minute of it, the longer I have massaged the more I have loved it, and the more confident and comfortable I have become in my ability. But, boy has my life changed!
With that being said, it is now time for me to go....
Since I began my business as a massage therapist I have also been doing workshops to develop my natural ability as a Psychic Medium. Let me tell you though, the Medium part of that was a huge surprise!
Since the age of 15 I have found the spiritual world fascinating. Looking back now, I know that the connection with that world has always been there since I was young but I just didn't know it. My beautiful Auntie knew though as she constantly tells me.
When I was in my early 20's I had my first ever reading and the reader told me that one day I would be doing what she was doing, and I remember asking her how that was going to happen, because honestly I had no idea where to begin. She told me I would develop the ability on my own but there was also the possibility that I was going to meet an older woman who would teach me.
Well I met the older woman, and although she is actually 6 months younger than me, she is so much older than me on a soul level. Lisa Williams has now been my teacher and mentor since 2012 and has been a huge and important part in me finally owning who I am.
Through doing workshops on Psychic and Mediumship development I have grown so much in my confidence and understanding of myself and in owning who I am. I have loved learning and now teaching about the spiritual world.
The journey hasn't been an easy one, especially on my husband and children. I remember having a conversation with my husband where he said to me 'but you weren't like this when we met', the truth is, I was, and I have always been drawn to and connected with the spiritual world but was too afraid to tell anyone.
Since that conversation I have been truly blessed with my husband and children's support of my learning to talk to dead people and following my souls journey as it screamed out to me to follow what I now know is my true path.
Finally I have accepted that this is who I am and what I do and so have those that are close to me.
So I would like to welcome you to my new website and the new me...
