Not sure how to start 🙂
Well! most of us don’t know how to start something new, creative, adventurous specially when it’s really exciting but scary at the same time….
The only thing that helps through out the process of uncovering your truth, and following it through is the vision of what you would like to achieve and what you would want to be.
I started on the healing path with my father’s journey into illness, it sounds strange but it actually makes sense now. Those were difficult times for the whole family but that one step that i took to help him feel better and the blessings that came along every time we had our little one to one sessions made me realise how blessed I am to be doing this.
I was working as an IT Consultant at the time, travelling the world, making money and meeting new people, which was really fun and exciting too but it was missing something. I wasn’t as happy, charged up and inspired at the end of the day as I was each time I had a session with my dad. I had a connection and it felt really good and rewarding. So, I had to explore it further and find out more. I quit my job , got married and came to U.K. with my lovely husband.
I learnt Acupressure in India but in the West, they called something similar Reflexology, So, I continued to learn more and did my one year training in Reflexology with 100 case studies, phew! nearly took the life out of me in 2012. I wanted to find out if it’s different when i do the treatments with my family compared to when I do the same treatments with strangers and to my delight, i found out that I still felt the connection and the overwhelming sense of bliss.
By now, I knew what I wanted to do and what my calling was but I was scared, how is it going to be? I was scared I would loose my love and passion for Reflexology If I established it as a business. I was scared that I wouldn’t be able to generate enough money to sustain a living as i don’t want to charge people for something so special and sacred ? I was scared that perhaps I am not good enough to do it professionally. So, I continued to do other jobs and kept Reflexology as a part time hobby to help friends and family whenever I could manage the time to do treatments on them.
I didn’t have the courage to do it, I would always find excuses not to start it or my fears would have the better of me. I wasn’t happy, I was sad and depressed not knowing why? I knew I wanted to do something special, something big but my fears were bigger than my dreams. I am sure many of you have already faced this or are going through it right now while life is slowly slipping away.
It’s not easy to start a new venture or a business specially when you have some of the limiting beliefs that I had like ‘only crooks succeed in business, I am not the business type, i know nothing about business’ etc. but then there is a saying, ”beyond fears, lies your dreams”. I continued to dream, imagine inspite of my fears. I spoke to my family and my friends and shared my vision. My hubby was very supportive and always told me to follow my dreams and my heart but i still lacked the courage to JUST DO IT! till the time some angel came along in the shape of a friend and kicked my butt ! (lol!) and suddenly the engine of my dreams kicked off and i started doing things in the direction of my dreams and it was no more just a dream, it was slowly shaping into a reality. From Surreal to real, from Imagination to a living thing, I have been lucky enough to see it blossom.
We started Healing Tree on 15th of January 2017 on the auspicious day of my Father’s birthday with a small ceremony and now we are launching this Website ”www.healing-tree.org” to reach out to more people.
This is how we started and I thank all my family, friends, mentors, spiritual guides and everyone who has been a part of this special journey with us. Without any of you missing in my life, I wouldn’t have been able to get, where I am today.
This is my first post and I felt it was important for me to write about my journey to share my story and also to inspire anyone who is still sitting on the edge and dreaming, waiting to JUMP! i hope you enjoyed the post.
I would continue to write more posts, mostly about Reflexology, Crystal healing , PLR, Acupressure etc. in order to add some more insights in to this amazing world of ”Reflexology and Healing”.
