Discovering a set of beliefs I never knew I had

At the end of last year an amazing opportunity came my way; to write a chapter in a book all about Energy Healing!  This was entirely new to me, but very exciting and very scary in equal measures.  An opportunity to really put myself out there and share user friendly information about a subject that I have studied deeply, practice daily and offer to my clients regularly.  Something of which I consider myself to have a good knowledge of.  However, every time I sat down to write I was completely blocked.  I couldn’t access any of my wisdom.   I typed and deleted every sentence and paragraph numerous times and as the deadline fast approached I felt myself panic.  Why couldn’t I commit my passion to paper and share what I knew so well?


As a life coach I have been on my own journey of personal discovery and am very aware of my limiting beliefs and behaviours.  But this time it felt different.  It was clearly a sign that something was still happening for me at a deeper level which meant I found this exciting opportunity a challenge.

But all was not lost.  With the support of others, I discovered a deeper set of beliefs that I have carried since childhood.  Beliefs that meant I feared being seen and being accountable for what everyone would read.  It triggered my greatest fear of being judged and rejected.  The good news is that by having this new insight, I was able to embrace my perceived fear and not let it hold me back.  I decided to focus on using all my own healing techniques to get me through my fear and commit word to paper.  I went on to submit my chapter with a great sense of accomplishment.  I could genuinely say I felt proud of what I wrote and was excited for what my readers would receive and gain in return.

So, the moral of my story here is to reinforce that we always have access to everything we need.  When challenges present themselves, they are just another gift from the universe to look inside and get to know yourself a bit better, and when you do...your life suddenly becomes much bigger and richer.  I am therefore delighted to say that my chapter has been published and can be found in The Book of Energy Healing

Included in my chapter:

  • Energy Healing: what are the facts?
  • How does your energy influence how you feel inside and out?
  • Are you listening to what your body is telling you?
  • Different healing modalities that you can access independently and bring into your day to day life; crystal therapy, colour therapy, sound therapy and conscious breathing,
  • How your environment can influence the way you feel.

If you are interested in reading the book (and of course my chapter!) copies are available to buy at Haelan Therapy or online HERE.  You can also access my treatments in Transformational Coaching, Crystal Therapy, Colour Therapy, Transformational Healing, Transformational Touch-Talk Therapy and Reiki too. 

I look forward to hearing what you think about the book and my chapter too!
