There were many times I was concerned about my family’s understanding of what I did for a living. I started coaching people when business coaching was a new field and not many people knew about it or even understood it. When I started doing energy healing work, I didn’t tell my family for a long time out of fear of what they would think. Now they know what I do. They still don’t fully understand it and that’s okay. They just want me to be happy.
2. Follow your intuition and not the thoughts/voices in your head.
At some point, the thoughts in my head took over, and they would go from good to terrible. It seemed like it was guidance speaking but it was actually my unconscious ego. I have since learned that many people face the same challenge. I had to up-level my intuitive abilities to bypass my ego when working with clients.
I can now get out of the way when working with clients and support them in what they want rather than what my mind thinks would be best for them. I’m also better able to follow my intuition rather than what I think when it comes to making decisions about my life and business.
3. Be a continuous innovator in your field.
I’ve always been creative, and I love creating new things. However, I didn’t realize how innovative I could get with energy work. The possibilities are endless and I keep pushing boundaries to see what else is possible.
I test all my new ideas on myself and my family first and then on a sample of at least 300 people to see what positive differences it makes. If it doesn’t make a notable difference on the test sample, I keep tweaking it until it does.
For example, I infused proprietary healing energies into customers’ shampoo to help heal their brains and their minds. I’ve found that the “energized shampoo” helps them absorb the healing energies better. Results included improved mental acuity, financial acuity, business acuity, and creativity among other things.
It also helps hugely with people’s physical health since many health problems start in the skull.
4. You have the ability to make a significant positive impact in the world.
I went to New York and visited the Bill Gates Foundation. They displayed a lot of ideas on how to make a big impact in the world. This got me thinking about how I could make a bigger difference.
I decided to create a healer training program that teaches people how to use the special energies I created to make a bigger impact on the world. This healing energy helps people in power be the best they can be.
It is so fulfilling for me and my students to see our world leaders shift and do more positive things in the world as a result of receiving our energy healing. I just wish all of our government and corporate officials could receive this healing. Some have a resistance to it and therefore don’t receive it.
5. You can be anything you want including a multi-millionaire.
The lens through which I see myself and what I am capable of has been too narrow for most of my life. I never considered doing typically male professions or things that require physical strength or agility. I’ve always seen myself as feminine, smart, assertive, and un-athletic. It’s a box I cast myself in. I become more confident when I work outside this box. I’ve realized there really isn’t much I can’t do as long as I truly commit to it. I am more athletic at age 64 than I ever was before.
It feels great to continue to do things that defy the box I had put myself in. I never saw myself becoming a healer, an artist, or a multi-millionaire. But here I am now: A healer, an artist, and a multi-millionaire.
