So, wow. Blog drought central! Been a titch busy and have had nothing but laptop connection problems since we have moved into the new digs. Been a jam-packed year of change and good things all around. I am a grateful soul... just not a writing soul.
Have blown that intention for 2015. Ah well.
The big ticket items, however, I have managed to nail. Booya.
The one thing I have been longing to embrace is to immerse myself in meaningful study and shift my life path to one of personal service to others, to aide and support others in transmuting their fears and finding their personal potentials realised. I long pondered the return to academia to get a Master's in something like conflict management but any academic hall programs I did investigate didn't "fit" the song in my soul.
Now... at 50, I am pursuing a stream of passion that underscores that song - spiritual psychotherapy. Helping others transmute their fears and step into their potentials. Part-time studies over the next two years and then 1000 clinical hours after that to attain registered designation with the governing provincial bodies. A bit daunting at this stage of my life but for those who know me well know it's always a "go big" gig I jump into.
The next nine months is all theory and dyad work. Then I begin practical application through case study work (at which point I will be looking for clients!) to underscore that learned while helping others discover personal healing and freedom.
All my life I have felt slightly out of step with the world and even with myself. Now... now I feel right smack dab in the middle of where I am supposed to be and who I am at core of self.
Funny how it often takes half a lifetime to get to the place of "now," isn't it?
That "live, learn, love" mantra has a whole new meaning for me these days. And it's all good!
And life is. It is.
I am livin' to learn and lovin' to live!
