Who am I? I am a woman who just turned 50 this past June. 50! A half a century! Where have I been? Where am I going? Who have I been? Who will I be? With the assistance of various alternative metaphysical practices I have been discovering, I am attempting to answer life’s big questions such as these, evolve and connect to a spirituality that resonates with me. (Please note that I will be vauge about personal details for privacy’s sake).
Seven years ago, I graduated with a Masters degree in Spiritual Nurture from an accredited graduate school. However, I found myself disagreeing with much of the traditional Christian doctrine that I had learned. So I packed up my faith and put it away to examine another day.
Recently, I’ve found myself reconnecting to spirit and discovering alternative practices that guide my life in a positive direction and help me function more fully. I’d like to share my journey of growth and renewal with you as I explore these practices in hopes that you may find them helpful as well.
Let me add that I have tried and was even trained in traditional western psychotherapy. While it has it’s benefits, it was not enough for me. I found that as a client, talking about the same issues week after week kept me stuck in those issues.
When I was being trained, I longed to offer something more to a client than merely handing them the preverbial tissue every so often. I longed to offer touch or teach them coping skills.
It hasn’t been until the last couple of years where I have learned new techniques such as Reiki, hypnosis, EFT tapping and others. This is my journey using alternative methods of self-nurture to foster my growth. Feel free to journey along with me as I seek my life’s purpose.
While it is my hope that you may find resources that are helpful to you, I invite you to take full responsibility for your own well being in using anything mentioned in this blog.
