Reflections on Two Decades

I contemplated suicide in September 2000 after my partner had an affair. That was all I could see and think about at the time however there were a myriad of other unseen factors which as I would come to find out, were intertwined around negative emotions and a few well ingrained limiting beliefs.

The big buzz (and worry) was the millennium bug as the ⏰ computer clocks which run our world hit midnight.

I had given up my job to study to be a Chartered Accountant. Suddenly I was fiancé-less, living in place I now had to finance on my own, and was suffering awful fatigue and a long list of illnesses.

By December 2000 my life and outlook on life had changed dramatically. The word truly was: “Transformed.”

The fairytale somewhat crashed in 2010 when government contracts which filled the pipeline pretty much disappeared overnight in the recession.

It’s been a journey since then. Highs and lows, downs and ups. Things achieved which I’d only dreamt possible, other things I’d hoped for which hadn’t come to fruition. Such is the stuff of life.

A question I’m often asked is: “How do you turn things around?”

A key question which I think is also important is how do you maintain and sustain change?

The turning things around was swift, and can be summed up in 5 words: Personal Development and Breakthrough Session. When I’m at my desk I’ll add a link where you can find out more about the 8-hour Breakthrough Sessions which have changed hundreds of lives over the years.

The maintaining and sustaining in summary for me includes:

* Investing in yourself.
* Doing the work.
* Being open to exploration and change.
* Continue to regularly do the things that work, aka habits.
* The Magic Ingredient.

I would further summarise it as: Persistence, Patience, Perseverance and Resilience.

There are challenges which literally changed overnight such as my massive fear of public speaking, others which were years in the making and probably still unfolding.

The first picture was taken by the late John Wigham who was not happy that I always came out looking less than good in photos so wanted to see if he could capture what he said he saw when he looked at me. Much has changed since then, and so much also remains the same; I have the same leopard print sofa.

If you had spoken to me in 1999 or even August 2000 I could never in a million years have predicted the direction my life was to take; I’m now qualified in things which I didn’t even know existed: Timeline Therapy, NLP, PhotoReading, Soul Plan Reading, Future Life Progression, Archetypal Profiling, EFT, DNA Theta Healing, Access Consciousnesses, Access Bars, Huna, Prince2 Project Management, Management Consultancy . . . . .

As I look back over and past 10 and 20 years and think about 2030 and 2040 I really can’t predict exactly what I’ll be doing. I imagine more of the same, and I am open to exploration and what I don’t yet know exists.

One thing I’ll say is it feels like time for another big breakthrough, one even more swift and profound than the last.

Where were you 10 and 20 years ago, and how much has your life changed or joyfully stayed the same?

Possible Suggestions, Next Steps, and Starting Point

The Breakthrough Session

It was the 'Big Bang' Session that turned the old emotions and suicidal feelings around for me in December 2000, and the service I offered for the first 9 years I was in practice. You can read more here:

From Alzheimer's Brain to Clarity

WOW!!! To this day, almost 20 years on, I am still in awe of how the PhotoReading Skills show up for me every single day. In my 20s I was diagnosed with what presented as early onset Alzheimer's. It made everything I tried to do both personally and professionally a near impossible struggle.

Everything changed, transformed, and did a 360 degree turnaround with PhotoReading. As well as being brilliant for students and those taking professional exams, it is also an incredible boost for entrepreneurs, and those in a business where keeping up to date with what is happening in your industry and field is key.

Confusion About Your Life Path and Journey?

In 2005 I became an Archetypal Profiling and Archetypal Branding Consult. Holy moley. To say it was a revelation in terms of what I had been through and the road travelled would be an understatement. It clearly explained the whole transformation process and seeming torture of the "dark night of the soul" perfectly.

The Deeper Calling and Purpose of Your Soul

Now this was another deeeeeeeep dive experience. Much like personal development, where I accidentally signed up for a course thinking it was just going to be about improving my communication skills, I stumbled across the Soul Plan Readings.

Soul Plan Reading Testimonial
The Soul Plan Accuracy

My clients often describe seeing their Soul Plan Report for the first time like:

"Seeing your whole life mapped out on 5 sheets of paper."

A radio interview I did a few years ago is below:

The Future is Bright

If you're all clear on sorting out your old negative emotions, limiting beliefs, where you are on the 8 stages of the Archetypal Journey, and know exactly what your soul is here to do and understand your Worldly and Spiritual Challenges, and how to resolve and overcome them, you might want to take a trip out into your ultimate best future and version of you.
