"Those pains you feel are messengers. Listen to them." ~Rumi~

I have always believed in our body's natural ability to heal, in the abundance of Mother Nature's resources and energy available to us from the Universe.

 

I have experienced their power many times in my life. The medicinal herbs and foods my grandmothers and parents used when someone in our family got sick. Traditional Chinese Medicine and energy therapy for a tumor in my breast, which helped prevent surgery. And completely cured myself of autoimmune disease with herbs and radical dietary changes.

 

My curiosity grew, fueled by my own experiences and those of others. I read a lot of books and took several courses to expand my knowledge.

 

But I always saw it ONLY as my passion and my hobby…

I have worked in the financial world for 20 years, mainly at large companies. I was making a career, proud of my own success and happy with the stability my job gave me. I was focused, resilient, dedicated and reliable. I was in control of my life and living it as planned. Until I had a burnout. Twice.

 

For years my body gave me the signals that I was not on the right track, that I was running too fast, in the wrong direction. In the beginning, those signals were very subtle. Then they got more painful, until I couldn't ignore them anymore. I have stopped. I started listening to that whispering voice from within instead of all those voices outside me screaming so loud…

 

After my first burnout, Reiki came my way. It felt so natural and simple. It was so soothing and healing. It helped me understand my body's messages. It showed me that the only way to move forward was to follow my heart. But there was still too much old programming, fears and resistance to make such a major life change.

 

So I returned to my work environment with a commitment to take better care of myself, while also continuing the journey to self-discovery. A few years later my body said “stop” again. Only this time it was much more difficult. I could no longer ignore the fact that there had to be another path for me and another purpose in my life. I realized that I had to let go of all that resistance and surrender. I decided to just let the change change me. It took a lot of vulnerability and courage to follow my heart and turn my passion into my job.
