I started flying airplanes at the age of 17, and spent most of my adult life as an airline pilot (until my surprise "bonus baby" twins arrived at the age of 43.) A classic first-born people pleaser and control freak of magnitude, my job as a pilot suited me well. It was an acceptable way to stand out and be different, and offered me the respect and admiration I secretly craved.
As I approached 40, instead of buying a sports car for my mid-life crisis, I mean awakening, I unconsciously began searching for something I didn't even realize was missing from my life. I had never heard of Reiki before (or any other alternative healing for that matter), but it quickly became a gateway drug to the energetic web of life that pulses around and within us (which often goes unnoticed by most people.) I became a Reiki master, started my own business, and added essential oils, mindfulness, and intuitive coaching to my repertoire.
I named my fledgling business Pathfinder Healing Arts. In aviation, a Pathfinder is the first airplane that flies out after a storm, charting a safe course for all those that follow. I didn't realize at the time that I was actually a Pathfinder, and if you've found yourself on this website then you probably are too.
Many of us don’t realize how many unconscious beliefs and judgments we carry, passed down from previous generations, that affect all areas of our lives. For instance, I could never understand why I cared so much what people thought of me. I would have coach after coach tell me, “Just stop caring what other people think.” To which I would reply, “If I could have, I would have by now.”
There are many things in our life that we try to think our way out of (or change with sheer will or determination), that never seem to shift. That’s because we need to release these things energetically before we can change and move forward. One day it occurred to me that my ancestors, first generation immigrants, cared a lot about what people thought and did whatever they could to blend in. That awareness, along with energy work to release the inherited emotions, helped me shift my beliefs and start speaking up about the things that mattered to me.
If you’ve been trying to shift something in your life you just can’t change, or know you have something in your ancestral lineage you would like shift or let go of, you’re in the right place. Journey on...........
