As many of you know,up until a few years ago I was happily strolling through life with my little Vintage business ‘These Foolish Things’.Or so I thought.It appears the Universe had other plans and on a bright and breezy November morning,life as I had known it for so long,began to unravel.I decided to close the door to my pretty online emporium forever,not knowing at all what lay ahead for me.My decision as painful as it was,lead me to a completely different lifestyle.
I became a healer.
Yes!who knew? certainly not me! I have always had an interest in holistic therapies and spiritual matters,but until I realised my path,I had no idea that I could become so engrossed in this life.I discovered an amazing Reiki Master,who absolutely believed in me, who taught me and ultimately changed my life.I am now a qualified Reiki Master myself and an experienced Tarot reader,A far cry away from house clearances and vintage fairs.
The spiritual path for me has been quite a journey,I feel however that I have had to endure some very hard life lessons,I have lost people along the way,but gained some truly amazing friendships also,and so it goes on,But….. back to the title of this post,When people ask me what I do now,especially former ‘Vintage’ chums,often the response is a little odd! I have had a few who nod smiling then make a hasty exit,another actually said “ Oh God all that new age hippy stuff! lol” Err no actually,I am still who I was before,I haven’t joined a cult or anything,so telling folk what I do is a tentative affair for me! Hence ‘coming out of the woo woo closet’ But you know,I am good at what I do,I am not God I cannot perform miracles(although I do sometimes see little ones!) I do not diagnose nor promise to cure,I work with an energy force that promotes wellbeing and encourages the mind,body and spirit to work together,is that so woo woo?
Most of the time I am simply me,In between being a Reiki therapist and Tarot reader,I clean the house,drive my kids around and make dinner,I do not sit crossed legged in front of a Buddha chanting,although don’t rule it out Buddhism is fascinating! but my point is about judgement I guess.
I am who I am . Woo Woo and all.
