Growth! I am always amazed at how the world conspires to help me grow and understand myself more and more.
I have been putting the idea of an office out there for awhile now. I have been looking and exploring the idea of moving into a space dedicated for my work. This seems like a small task, but it brought up big healing opportunities for me.
My home office is beautiful and great when the family is out in the world. But it often conflicts with their agenda to relax and be loud when they are home and I am in session. This came to head in a big way right after school let out this summer.
So, off I went to find an office. I quickly found a spot I had seen before and decided to go for it. Then became the "real world" requirements.
Keep in mind, I have an international business background. I am business savvy when I choose to be. However, in this work, I have avoided many boxes. Trying to honor this work as unique from the "standards" of life.
But as I step out into the world, I have to take the next steps on being taken seriously. This seems silly for those of you who work with me often and know my work. But the world isn't as familiar with this kind of work as we would like to think. Sure, there are a lot of energy concepts going main stream, but it is still considered woo woo by many.
My healing opportunity came from having to explain what I do to the real estate agent and then later, insurance companies. I was met with laughter and rejection pretty quickly. However, that was divinely perfect for me. I needed that in order to face my own insecurities about this work. I battled my internal voices and external advisors. I struggled to move away from feeling victimized by discrimination and ignorance.
I faced my demons regarding persecution and needing to be understood in order to feel safe. I faced the idea that I still have a little girl inside me that needs approval once in awhile. It was an amazing opportunity to release the weight of these unconscious limitations and move into more ease with it all.
Once I did... I found an office, insurance and the perfect plan to go forward. It all slipped into place pretty quickly. Which means, I will have an announcement to make about a new location and a new found peace with myself about being who I am in the world.
