Are You Ready to Give Your Gift to the World?
Posted by Sami Thorpe | 20th April 2015
Have you taken the training, done the study, practised the techniques and now want to launch your career in EFT, EMO, Matrix or other Energy Therapies?
Do you wonder how the big names make it and get the platform to share their passion?
Are you like many others out there, trying to find your way, to find your niche, comparing yourself to everyone else - including your masters and trainers?
Are you wondering if you have what it takes to make it work when you see the competition?
Well, the real question is, are you ready to give your gift? Or, to put it another way, are you ready to be yourself?
Much as you admire and emulate your trainers, you can't give their gift - it's theirs!
I have been privileged to train with some of the most amazing leading masters and trainers in their field, like Karl Dawson, Silvia Hartmann and Rob Van Overbruggen.
When I first came into the field of energy therapy it was through a personal necessity - I was in terrible physical, mental and emotional pain. I felt a complete victim of things happening in my life; other people were attacking me; people close to me did not understand me to the point where I hated them for it and I was too ill to have the energy to fight anymore. I was an aggressive alcoholic diagnosed with depression, chronic fatigue syndrome and a debilitating lumbar back problem.
I felt that it was impossible to be myself, in fact I was being someone that I hated and felt I had no control over myself, let alone anything else. At my lowest point, something happened that made me search for help.
It was the beginning of February and my Mum had just been visiting for Xmas and New Year. She could see my pain and felt helpless to do anything. My deepest fear was that nobody would understand me and everyone else would think I was mad. The more afraid I got, the more 'mad' I became.
When he was alive my grandad has been sectioned and I was terrified of this happening to me. And yet, I was being this different person, not in control, not rational and not stable. My Mum said to me, with the deepest love, "You know, you remind me of your grandad".
Although I was not sectioned, I do believe at that time I was certifiable and a danger to others and myself.
Something had to change...
I searched the internet beginning with 'anger management' and through a convoluted series of clicks through websites going via America and a bunch of other countries I was led back to EFT & Matrix Reimprinting with Karl Dawson in Brighton, where I lived. He was giving a training that very day!
This was a sign!
And the rest, as they say, is history.
As I learned EFT, EMOTrance, Matrix Reimprinting, HeartMath, NLP, PSYCH-K and other amazing tools to release stress and trauma and to change my perceptions of the world and people around me, it felt like the shackles of this depression, anger and fear began to fall away. All the past trauma and stress in my life, the drama and the stories had all been stuck. For the first time in my life I was able to let them go - just as I had always believed was possible but just never knew how!
I began to see the me that had been lost the light that had been hidden in all the darkness and I began to be someone i like and even later began to love - maybe for the first time.
What a journey I had been on, out of darkness into light. I became hungry for more information and more learning and when I studied META-Medicine, for me this was the missing link.
That person I became, the illness, the pain, it all made complete sense. I could I see how amazing my body was to adapt to my perceptions and view of the world, even my behaviour was a result of specific stuck trauma and stress. My body, my behaviour was compensation, even over-compensation in relation to my deeper beliefs, and in updating my understanding of past events, by beliefs changed. My understanding grew and my weakness and fear became wisdom and strength.
Since my first experiences in EFT I have studied my masters and teachers and other experts in the field. I have used the NLP concept of modelling what works in others to excel in the areas I want to grow and have been a tireless student to meet the approval and validation of my masters so that I might move to the next level of understanding in my field.
And then, as an experienced EFT and EMOTrance Master Trainer and META-Medicine Master Trainer, I have found my next big lesson. Something very interesting happened. I became stuck. This 'stuckness' manifested as frustration and even judgement. I was still comparing myself to everyone else, fellow students, even my masters. I began comparing my views of the world to theirs, my method of teaching to theirs, my students to their students. I loved teaching the courses I was accredited to teach, but I was asked to give my own opinions and began to resent the restrictions of the syllabus I had been given the honour to teach. I was even invited to work alongside some of my masters and found I was resistant to enter partnership for fear of not being able to do things my own way...
What did this mean?
I was like the teenager who starts to become restless and rebellious. No matter what Mum and Dad say, it's somehow wrong. No matter how supportive they are being, it's restrictive and no matter how right they are; "I don't want to do it your way, I want to do it my - even if it's wrong, I want to find it out for myself. This fledgling has found its time to leave the nest.
But lets not forget, this vital rite of passage in our human growth does not mean that we turn away from our parents. In fact we love them more for being the wind beneath our wings when we fly the nest and soar to new heights.
Of course this does not mean that we leave the family when we leave home - it just means that we mature to realise our true selves and to do things in our own way.
We all have a unique story to tell with which to inspire others. But I can't tell Karl's story, or Silvia's story, or Rob's story... I can ONLY tell my story and thats what makes me unique.
That's MY gift. I am my gift.
Even though I could see my journey was unique, I still didn't see my gift until I realised that it's my learning that I need to share. Not what I was taught, but what I had learned!
We each have a unique understanding - our own awakening, our own enlightenment. This is the light that we shine. We each have the light that will shine for others who are themselves in the dark where we once were. NO light is too dim, no epiphany too small.
It is your gift to shine. Shine brightly as you never know who is looking from that dark place.
I have been truly inspired my by master and teachers and continue to be so. I am proud of my association with them and I hope to inspire my students in the same way that I have been inspired.
I have had insights, epiphanies and 'aha' moments that have changed the trajectory of my life in ways which I could never have foreseen. And as my path unfolds, I feel the closeness to that family that nurtured me and watched me grow.
In the words of Alexandra K Trenfor; "The best teachers are those who show you where to look but don't tell you what to see."
So, the question is, are you ready to give your gift to the world? It is nothing more complicated than to give your unique self. As Silvia says; "Be the gift that only you can give."
But that's the thing... you have to "BE the gift that only YOU can give."
You will not compare yourself to others if you are being your own Master.
My new workshop CONSCIOUS HEALTH PRACTICE is my gift. It is the learning that I have unfolded on my journey. My unique fusion of all that I understand about the wisdom and intelligence of our bodies and the human energy system.
It is my mission to be my gift and share all that I have learned, beginning with this 4 day personal breakthrough workshop uniquely designed to bring together the powerful root-cause-analysis tools with powerful stress and trauma release tools.
