In my last post I talked about the satisfaction and the health benefits that come with caring about other people and finding ways to be of service in the community. This can be done as a volunteer of course and there is a particular feeling of reward that you get when you are offering your time to help others without any financial benefit. But we all need money to live so what if your job could be something that not only supports you but also makes a valuable contribution to the community. This is something I’ve been working on for years and with some real issues of self-worth coming up in relation to money it hasn’t been an easy path. In our current Western culture it can often be hard to find a higher purpose to life but without that sense of meaning we are like zombies in an automated world, collecting more and more stuff!
So I am very excited to be offering Intuitive Counselling at the “Heal Yourself Expo” in Maroochydore this coming weekend. It’s an opportunity for a very small business like myself to connect with those who are seeking healing and a greater purpose to their lives. If I end up being very busy I will miss the presentations but that will mean I am getting to help lots of people who are genuine seekers. Helping other souls to expand and grow and evolve as human beings, sounds like a good time to me! Ultimately those who are doing this kind of work will do themselves out of a job but when we get to that place it won’t be necessary for anyone to have a ‘job’. That is a statement that many people would consider crazy but with the technology available now there really isn’t any need for everyone to work for a living.
The expo is the sort of environment where those who do question the status quo and want to know about alternatives for health and well-being can explore a range of possibilities. And a big part of what people will gain from this sort of exploration is that they have the power to heal themselves. Nothing wrong with being inspired by others but at the end of the day you are the only one who can create change within yourself. And if you change then the world changes around you. Seemingly insurmountable problems can disappear in the blink of an eye even though you may appear to have ‘done’ nothing on the surface. I once went from complete overwhelm when I was studying and working to being calm and in control, simply by putting some crystals and a photo of myself on an altar and saying a prayer. If you would like to hear that story check out the post “My Strawberry Heart“.
So if you live somewhere near the Sunshine Coast in Queensland and you are a seeker, come and say hello. There will be talks on a wide range of subjects and interesting stalls to look at, I’m expecting it to be a stimulating and inspiring weekend.
