As a holistic practitioner with strong beliefs on my own spirituality, I am fully aware that the services I offer may seem totally off the wall to some people. I have always believed that everyone is entitled to their opinion and that the greatest way to help anyone is to “demonstrate don’t broadcast”. By that, I mean that I live my life according to my beliefs and some people find that interesting and want to be involved and learn the tips and techniques I apply, whilst it may not be for others.
I learned long ago that the sure fire way to get people resistant to your beliefs, to reject them or even to mock them, is by trying to force them down their throats! Despite being excited by things that I learn, especially when I see them massively impact my way of life, it is always better to just quietly demonstrate that change rather than shout about it.
My ability to learn this from a young age may largely be down to my father. My father has always been very open to the possibilities of the universe however, my father cannot ever be told anything, as he will instantly resist and dig his heels in. When I began demonstrating I was on this life path, I could regularly sense my dad’s skepticism of the things I was learning. Despite his unwavering love and support, I knew there were choices that I was making that concerned him, that in his words, were ‘mumbo jumbo’.
In fact, my father has been one of my greatest teachers and his healthy skepticism made me realise that people will come around to believing things if and when they are ready and no amount of force feeding will ever make that happen. I therefore, am really happy to have received an email from my dad today for me to put on here to demonstrate how he has come around to believing in my work and way of life.
