This weeks task in the MKMMA Mastermind Alliance was to be silent for an extended period of time. This couldn’t have come at a more ‘well timed’ period. The kids are back at school and I have a few days off work.
This silence included NO TV, NO Phone, No Social Networking Sites, Music And the biggest for me is talking!!!
The Virtue I will be exercising alongside this is ‘Self Control because I’m gonna need this to get through the silence effectively !!!
… so by now you most likely get the picture, this is going to be a massive challenge.
I can utilise however, the fact that my phone is on its way out. The charging port is extremely temperamental which means I have to fiddle with it for quite some time before the light shows an active charge. I then have to leave it ‘off’ in a carefully placed position out the way…
… one nudge and the charging goes to pot.
So being totally and completely silent… What should I do?
A day trip in nature is just what the doctor orders. I have always loved being outside especially when I can hear the birds singing, the rustling of the trees in a gentle breeze and the sound of water flowing in a nearby stream.
It helps me quieten my mind and hear my soul speak.
I’ve been “sitting” and meditating for a while now, but going out like this gives me moments where my mind gets even more quiet, and it’s a wonderful space to be in… perhaps days like these will help me find more answers when I meditate.
What a week.. I didn’t realise just how much I missed doing this. I must do this more regularly. I feel calm and happy. The feeling of being at peace in nature is a good thing. … and there was a beautiful view of the whole area.
Mark J and the fabulous Davene said “You’re going on a treasure hunt!”…
… So what exactly is this treasure? What am I trying to find?
The treasure is the gift we can give to others of course! The gift present in all our hearts ..and we can share these by blessing other people in the world around us !!
I must admit for quite a few months I have been trying to work out what I want my gift to be, and I keep lulling it over in my mind. I know that I have a gift of touch and healing when I perform my aromatherapy, massage and beauty treatments but there’s more to me I just know it. I want to find out what this is and I am willing to take part in this silent treasure hunt in order to do so.
So this week, that’s what I did…
… It was a lovely day!!! I felt free and at one with myself. I felt lighter in spirit and not as stressed as usual. It was a beautiful day outside and the sun was shining. The view around me was breathtaking. I did the activities that I liked to do and when I returned home I rested because it was my time…
…A time to slow down and relax..
… a time to think and be still.
I felt really grateful that I took the time for myself. I enjoyed taking pictures of the beautiful views. (I couldn’t help sneek the phone for capturing these moments!!) Another memory was created…
Next morning I was off work and I felt refreshed from the day before. My time had ran out but where was my treasure?!
I still had not found it yet…It wasn’t until the end of the week it sprung forth!!
I started thinking about how my my definite major purpose had evolved somewhat. My blogging has become a weekly habit. I Love to write about my experiences and I continually get massive inspiration from reading other peoples blogs. Things go round and round in my mind and I relate to these people by linking my life to their wise words. Could there possibly be a door open in my life for developing this skill. Maybe I could reach the hearts of many with my writing?
WHY WOULD MY WRITING BE A GIFT TO OTHERS THOUGH ?!
HOW COULD MY STORY HELP OTHERS?
The answer came to me!
… IT WAS THERE HIDDEN DEEP WITHIN.. .
I wanted to reach and teach others with what I had learnt…
I’ve always known deep in my heart I have the gift of healing, and writing could possibly be another way I could touch people’s lives. As well as being a physical therapist I could be a therapist of the mind and spirit..
Yes that’s it..
… and its already the title of my wordpress account!!
I am able to teach others HOW to be holistically healthy!! It does’t stop with the body. The health of the mind and the spirit is just as important. This course had only deepened my knowledge.
As a believer in God I feel deep within that he has given me the skill of a being a therapist to be a blessing to others. I don’t have to think about it… I put my hands to work and the magic flows…I have trained for many years in this field… It only makes sense that I want to heal people with my words as well as my hands. Not only that, but I also want to be known as one of the greatest. Not in an egotistical way… I always want to be the best at whatever I do, that’s why I keep learning.
That gift that I’ve been given, that gift of healing and blessing other people with my knowledge…I want to gift to others. I want to do that for other people. It just makes Sense. And it feels right. It feels like me… the authentic me…
I found some of the TREASURE…. is there more waiting to surface … ?
… only time will tell
… quiet time
For now …my blogging continues…
…and my quest for more knowledge to increase my skills to succeed in my online business has been decided?
… i will grow
… and I will help many others!!
