My journey into studying Shamanism started quite literally by itself. You often hear of people who found themselves half way up a mountain side in Honolulu meditating than sitting in their bank office in Wandsworth. This isn’t quite that kind of journey. Yet it does involve a past life. One which I discovered quite by chance, and embraced. Fully.
As I sat with my agent in her office in North London one Spring afternoon, she asked me how a medical therapist come to land head first into spiritualism. I responded that I had no idea.
It’s true. There I was sitting at my desk one day going through some emails and suddenly, I found myself responding to an email about studying spiritualism.
I had been interested in the Spiritualist church some years ago. I had been close to my grandparents who had died when I was quite young. I still felt to this day a sense of profound loss in my life, so wandering into these events wasn’t unusual for me.
I had somehow in the back of my mind throughout my early life the theory that we are all watched over by a native American Indian who was all knowing, all wise and full of infinite wisdom. These are our spirit guides, I remember being told. These are the people of ancient times to walk with us through life, guiding us along the path of enlightenment.
I figured out that one day I would probably look at this a little deeper, and I was right. I did.
When my son was diagnosed with Autism in 2010, I hadn’t picked up a book on cognitive behavioural therapy to switch professions. In fact, I was merely a worried parent desperate to try and find some light in my son’s darkened life. I never anticipated delving into study, but three years later, a diploma arrived through the post, and a therapist I became.
The same thing happened with NLP. I found myself flying over 8,000 miles to West Coast America to study with the AIP ran and founded by the very talented Dr Matthew James. Yet it wasn’t until I started to question the basis that these alternative therapies sat bolt upright on, that I realised there was a whole lot more to learn. I had on just stratched the surface.
In this blog, you will travel that path of enlightenment with me.
You will share my concerns, my highs, lows and secrets through understanding more about the world that appears in from of our eyes yet actualy doesn’t exist. Not in the way you think.
So, take my hand and let’s enjoy this adventure together.
It will be one Hell of a ride….
