I think it’s always been a part of me; when I was young I felt that I had a connection to something else and would often come up with answers to peoples’ problems which seemed odd; they would try to call my bluff and say I made it up, but there was a little voice inside me telling me otherwise.
I didn’t listen to that voice at the time and instead I spent most of my life in sales and loved my work as I was making a difference to people’s lives. It was never about the money it was always about the deal that made a difference to their businesses. Living in Ireland at this time the economy was good and I enjoyed my work even though it involved long hours and very little time off. Some may have called it stressful whereas I loved it. The stress came when business started to fall and instead of me chasing around the country day after day, I was sitting at home desperately trying to encourage my customers to place an order. It was so stressful I ended up at the doctors with heart palpitations and not in a good place.
At this time, I had qualified in Reiki and had been using it only on myself, family and friends. My doctor suggested I have a career change and suggested reflexology. This was the start of my career in holistic therapies which has transformed my life. I’ve never been happier in my work and personal life. Working with these wonderful therapies has allowed me to flourish and blossom into the person I was always meant to be. The detour in life was purposeful and I am glad I took it but I’m so much more fulfilled now that I’ve landed here working with my true self.
