You know, when I was studying to be a teacher I was surrounded by people who were either teaching cooking on NVQ courses or teaching mechanics...what was I on the course teaching...
Crystal therapy! Yes at the time, I was undertaking my CertEd I was teaching Crystal Therapy so naturally when applying for a place on the University of Hudderfield's CertEd Programme, I had to apply with what I was already teaching because you a)have to be able to undertake teaching sessions & have them observed & moderated as part of the course & you also had to be able to teach micro sessions to the other students so you HAD to apply with what you were already teaching.
Can you imagine it...professional cooks discussing health & safety in the kitchen, knives, food prep, cooking...and me taking about energy, chakras & how crystals realign & support our energetic system. Imagine some more...a micro teaching session...where I am demonstrating how we can use crystal pendulums to dowse & identify the flow of energy of our chakras & teaching that to BIG, BURLY MECHANICS. Seriously. But you know what - every single one of those wonderful chaps, had their jaws drop to the ground when the crystal pendulum they were working with suddenly started moving WITHOUT THEM MOVING IT!
They suddenly realised that there were things that we simply couldn't rationally explain and it started to open their minds and hearts.
By standing in my OWN TRUTH, teaching what I KNOW, teaching what I had EXPERIENCE of, teaching what I knew to be TRUE, being confident about SHARING my beliefs and understanding...I moved out of what was comfortable and it paid itself back!
Always, ALWAYS, believe in yourself. YOU are INCREDIBLE and you never know what opportunity or challenge it might be that proves that to you.
Breathe Light - because you are! Live LOVE - because you absolutely ARE. x x
PS - picture is of my MOST favourite crystal, a personal crystal I have had for about 25 years - a gorgeous smoky quartz with amazing rainbows and pieces of mica in it
