An unexpected and slightly uncomfortable phenomenon has
overshadowed me for the last couple of years..as a complementary therapist, I
went from knowing what my calling in life was, to suddenly finding that all the
enthusiasm and passion had disappeared. I no longer felt motivated to offer
healing treatments, which had for a long time been such an important part of my
own sense of purpose. This was confusing, dismaying and left me feeling
directionless, without a purpose in life.
It started with a growing awareness in quiet moments that
what I was doing no longer felt fulfilling to me.
The following is a description by one of my Journey clients, of her experience of healing through Journey work. It should be stressed that everyone experiences Journey work differently because of the different and unique ways our minds process information, but this is a wonderful account of one person's Journey to healing.
The Journey - My Journey
Three years ago I developed post traumatic
stress (PTSD) after a relatively minor scalding accident on a flight from
business in Moscow. Boiling coffee was spilled all over my right thigh.
We are all in such a rush these days - I've just driven home
in rush hour traffic, where everyone on the road was in a tearing hurry to get
somewhere and woe betide anyone in their way!
The theme of always seeming to be in a rush has come up
strongly for me recently. A few weeks ago I was given a very salutary lesson in
just what the consequences can be when the car in front of me unexpectedly
stood on the brakes and I was very quickly made aware of what happens when you
dont keep a safe stopping distance behind!
Happy New Year to you all, I hope it brings the highest and
best for you. This month I thought I would write about how to use essential
oils to help detox your body, as most of us get over-tired and over-indulge
over the Christmas period!
The best way to do this is to use the oils on your skin, as
they very quickly get absorbed into the blood stream where they are transported
and used by the body to give various health benefits.
A combination I like to use is Grapefruit, Geranium and Cedarwood
as the aromas combine well together (citrusy, flowery and woody) and their therapeutic
properties will really support your detox efforts.
A blueprint for health and happiness
search for the truth about staying healthy and happy I have discovered that
there are a number of important components:
mental and spiritual well being
- a healthy
Emotional Health And Well-Being
When you acknowledge
and stay present to how you are feeling emotionally (happy, sad, irritated or
anxious) you then have more opportunity to find a way of dealing with these
emotions in a healthy way and a better chance of influencing how you experience
similar events in future.
Time.. all have the same amount of hours in the day, yet some of us seem to have more free time available than others! How much of this is self-inflicted and how much is unavoidable?
I always seem to be in a hurry, no matter how much free time was originally available; so I ask myself is this a belief I have that there is never enough time, so that sub-consciously I fritter away any extra time I have to ensure that my belief always holds true!
Beliefs are very powerful. They are formed when we have a strong emotional response to an event and are not able to healthily express these feelings.
Why and how Journey work can help you to achieve your full potential and find true happiness!

Journey work – Scientific Basis
The Journey is a
globally recognized and critically acclaimed healing and transformational
process to awaken you to your true potential. To date, hundreds of thousands of
people worldwide have experienced this simple, yet powerful step-by-step
process overcoming a wide variety of challenges fromphysical ailments to emotional trauma or shut down, relationship
problems and career performance issues.
A contentious subject! If you ask someone why they chose to hold onto their pain, they can get very annoyed because it is easy to believe that we will always carry our past with us. I have learned (and experienced) that this is absolutely not the case. We have absolute freedom to chose to let go of what is past and refuse to allow it to define who we are now, or to drag past anger or hurt around with us every day.
Through a Journey process you experience at the deepest level whatever pain you have been holding onto; and if you are serious about wishing to be free of it and live a truly happy life, the process very gracefully leads you to finally let go of all the anger, hurt or fear so that you feel clear and much more peaceful.
I had the honour of working as a trainer at a Kids Journey day recently here in Hertfordshire. The children were aged between five and eleven years, and had a wonderful mix of innocense and wisdom beyond their years!
The day started with artwork and games to help them to relax and get to know each other. We talked about what happens when we experience upsetting emotions and are not able to express them at the time. How when we 'stuff them down' or 'swallow them', they get stuck in our bodies and make us feel unhappy inside.
For the last few years it has been a pleasure to give voluntary treatments to clients of CRI (Crime Reduction Initiative) drug & alcohol rehabilitation centre in Hertford. The clients were able to relax and find their own inner stillness in quite a profound way through Aromatherapy massage, Reiki and seated massage. Many of them found that the benefit lasted for several days afterwards, which all helps with chosing a healthier way to live.
Addiction always has an emotional root cause.. the challenge is to uncover the cause and be able to move on from it.
