Do you sometimes wonder how you ended up in your current situation - perhaps feeling lost, but overall dissatisfied with your life? It may seem like a great life on paper, but something feels like it's missing.
I hear you.
My life started out so well. After attending art college and working as a graphic designer for many years, I tried out different jobs and had some travelling adventures. In my thirties I decided to get a mortgage and settled into a regular job. Even though I ran meditation groups and practiced Reiki for a few years, after a while things started to lose their colour.
It can be difficult to pinpoint exactly when these things start, but for me it was in my early forties when I slowly spiralled down into anxiety and low depression due to work-related issues, then spent years coming back from that.
I've learned many interesting things along the way, and met some wonderful people on my quest for happiness. And it is a quest. Happy did not call at my door, I had to find its address and issue an invitation.
The most important thing I discovered is that it is not what you do, but how you do it. Mother Teresa said: “Do small things with great love.”
I also discovered I'm a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), and an INFJ in the MBTI personality tests and have strong Alchemist/Creator archetypes. I found that by exploring these aspects of myself, it gave me a great understanding of how I was connecting with the world.
This is why the Power Word Quiz is the entry point into my work, as it will give you an insight into who you are and strategies on how to overcome the challenges of your type.
My power word is ‘connection’ and I’m connecting with people and situations through my heart, and trying to bring these feelings into everything I do.
I'm still evolving, but happy calls at my door a lot more often than it used to, and when it does, I value those moments very highly.
Changing your words and changing your mindset is one of the most powerful things you can do for yourself.
