My 'pivot' (and my mini breakdown)

Wow, where do I start? How about Covid-19 came up and slapped me square in the face?

I'm a bit of a control freak, I like to be able to have a plan, then a back up plan for that plan... but what I hadn't planned for was Covid-19. I hadn't planned for it to slow down the ticket sales to my big event on March 14, I hadn't planned for it to close my event business completely four days later either. I also hadn't planned for my dog to die two days after that. For someone who likes to be able to plan for the most part, those massive changes caught me off guard, and to be completely honest with you, I didn't handle it too well (at the start).

I cried for about a week. I woke up at 7am and worked until midnight every night trying to come up with a 'plan.' I was a mess and it was showing in everything I was trying to put out. Everything looked desperate and that was evident through every word I put out to my community. I felt lost and I didn't know how to move forward from it. 

I always say that life will throw us a challenge and we can either accept the challenge and see the opportunity, or we can try to ignore it and run away, but we will not be able to move forward with our lives if we avoid it. So a week and a half into feeling sad and sorry for myself, I whipped myself out of the funk and chose to view the situation as an opportunity. 

I asked the universe for guidance everyday, I meditated, I paid attention to my nutrition and I exercised everyday. I made healthy choices to maintain a healthy perspective. Oh, I also cracked the shits so Dion and I FINALLY flattened our backyard dirt pile and laid grass... and by laid grass, I mean sowed grass seeds and I have been out watering three times a day to get it to grow. Anyway, as I was saying... I was asking the universe 'what next, where to from here?' I watched the documentary 'Heal' on day while I was having lunch. I have watched it before, but this particular time was different, something was resonating with me. I felt like I was being drawn down a different path to the one that I had been going down. 

Before my whole 'Biggest, Best, Most Sought After' Events business, I was life coaching. I worked mainly with women who felt lost in their lives due to the relationships they were in or had been in and were looking to build a better foundation for their lives to move forward. I loved it. I love being able to help people make a conscious decision to make their lives better. I love being the person that someone can come to for advice and guidance, nothing makes me happier than helping someone achieve a breakthrough in their life and be able to recreate a better life for themselves. 

So I'm watching 'Heal' and EFT tapping hit me. It hit me right the consciousness! 'Of course!' I thought, I've been playing with this whole healing world for years and never thought to deep dive into it. I've been practicing Reiki on my family for years after my Mum had done a course when I was around 8 years old and taught me how to do it. So that was it, I decided that I needed to 'pivot' and go back into life coaching, but this time from a more holistic approach. I enrolled in a Reiki Master course, EFT and Hypnotherapy practitioner courses, I'm doing a Chakra Balancing Massage certification and Advanced KaHuna Massage course, then Tantra and Sexology. 

In order to be able to offer a holistic service to the people I work with, I need to understand all aspects of emotional, spiritual and physical healing. I am really excited that in the midst of thinking I had lost everything I had worked so hard for, the universe actually threw me right onto the path I was meant to be on.
