Life has taken a turn for the incredibly busy, but in a very good way.
Although I graduated from college in psychology several years ago and I’ve been working with computers since then, I haven’t been sure what I want to do with my life. My passion is energy work, but there aren’t many ways to earn money using it. However, last August one of my friends introduced me to several books on healing both physical and psychological issues with energy. Healing has been one of my main interests in energy work, and not only did the books give techniques for healing, but they also were connected with organizations that both train and certify energy healers.
I love energy work, and I love helping people. To think that I could do both of those *and* support myself? Total win.
I kept the idea in the back of my mind until the end of last month, when some part of my mind began *insisting* that I start really looking into it and beginning to plan–and that I not waste any time about it! As it turns out, this worked out perfectly because there was very little time left before several deadlines, and if I had waited at all, I would have had to another six months to a year to get started.
Within a week I started classes at a massage therapy school (I wanted a solid foundation in anatomy and massage, as well as a license to protect myself legally), and the week after attended the introductory class for Eden Energy Medicine. It will take a year to get my massage therapy license since I’m taking night and weekend classes, and it will take at least two years to be certified as an Eden Energy Medicine Practitioner. I already use Usui Reiki (master level), and I’m looking into other modalities including forms of energy psychology. My goal is to learn as much about different forms of energy healing as I can (and get certified where possible to gain credibility), to use my knowledge of psionics to sort through the fluff and find more effective and efficient techniques, and to either open my own practice or work in a small clinic.
Since I’m still working full time, the next year will be a bit crazy, but for the chance to work at a job that I *truly* love, it is totally worth it.
