Time to restart… are you ready to take the jump?

Looking at the calendar I realise it’s been two years since my last time in Alice Springs, a most powerful place to run OCEAN and Family Constellation workshops.

Much has happened since, at least for me, and I can imagine for your too.

The world has changed. We all have changed.

Sometimes life serves big reminders, sometimes they are more subtle.

Either way they are an incredible opportunity to learn and grow.

Sometimes we can work it out for ourselves. Sometimes we need help to see more clearly and to take that first step.

There certainly were some big hits in our life.

There also was luck.

Thanks to listening to my intuition and the help of beautiful friends, practitioners, and a coach, who gave the last push to jolt me into clarity and action.

For example an overdue 2000 km relocation back to Brisbane finally happened.

Our good fortune in relocating is evidenced in alert medical support to improve our health.

Finally I am ready work, and be at your side again.

This will start with an OCEAN and Family Constellation workshop in Alice Springs next weekend, 26-27 May 2018.

Do you need a restart?

Are you ready to take the jump?

Get in touch with me to book your place.

Time is short, I know.

Spontaneous decisions, however, are often the best ones. You don’t have time to second guess your decision.

So, if it feels right, take that jump. You have a chance to accelerate your personal growth.

If you can’t be in Alice Springs this weekend, don’t worry. I will be there the following week, giving individual sessions.

For those of you who are not in Alice Springs and I can also give these sessions on-line.

Let the power of the ancient land of Central Australia help you through the ether.

The growing continues, no matter where we are.

I am so happy that I can be of service to you again.

Sending much love

From go-getter to receiver

Or – the gift of chronic fatigue.

About four months ago I lost something important, something you can’t really live without… my energy.

After an intense week at a conference – stricken with the flu! I wasn’t concerned, just did what always worked for me – took homeopathic remedies, essential oils and supplements to help rebuild the immune system.

Got better at first, but then the recovery stalled, and stalled… and stalled again. A month later I still couldn’t shake off the fatigue.

It took a phone call, from a good friend, to make me aware that I was burnt out – that I had, what some people call, ‘chronic fatigue’.

She should know, she’d had chronic fatigue for the last few years, and was now starting to come out it.

With her offer of support, and her assurance that it is possible to get through this, I finally let myself fall into the fatigue.

What happened subsequently was amazing: I really crashed, was more tired than I’d ever felt in my life.

A life of push-crash cycles had taken it’s toll.

All energy was gone. I could not move.

Had to completely switch off – even from thinking. Or at the very least, press the ‘pause’ button.

No longer  able to ‘go and get’, I thought that I might as well learn to receive – to go into my heart and be open to what existence showed me next.

Moving into uncharted territory – scary and exhilarating at the same time.

A turn around of many deeply ingrained beliefs about money, power, business, community, success, love, friendship…

The amazing thing was that when resting and trusting, I was happy. Beautiful things and people started coming towards me.

Slowly, slowly, after about a month I was getting better, a delicate journey of discovering new ways of being and doing business.

But, whenever I tried to do more than I was able to, I relapsed.

Luckily I knew how to respond. Rest.

From my experience I’d suggest that the key to recovery is:

Stop the intellect overriding messages from the body – start by being emotionally honest, both to yourself and to others.

Healing often comes from a direction we don’t expect, or have not yet considered.

A good friend, coach or therapist can help us, can point the way. The healing is in us all.

So if you resonate with what I say and do – and you feel the need for some help to find the healing in you, get in touch with me. I am back in the world – present and here for you.

Can you heal yourself? Yes you can!

Frank Ansell

Frank is a Ngangkari, an Aboriginal healer.

He’d healed my knee after I’d hardly been able to walk on it for months.

A year or so later, and again I’ve been in pain for months – this time with my shoulder.

We meet.

I ask: “when you’ve got time I’d like some healing for my shoulder.”

“You can do it yourself” he retorts.

Startled, I look at him and think: “I’ve been trying to do this for months now, and I’m still in pain”

Then, like a lightning strike, it hits me and I say: “It’s not about that, I just take on other people’s stuff!”

I walk away and sit on a rock to reflect on what just happened.

It’s true – the pain happens when I take on other people’s pain. When I focus on letting that go – the pain disappears.

So, we can heal ourselves.

In fact, it’s the only way we can heal.

Because if we are not fully with it and willing to let go of unhelpful mental and emotional structures, the best practitioner’s work is limited.

I know, I know. It’s a controversial topic.

The movie ‘The Secret’,  the ‘Law of attraction’, and various ‘manifesting’ voices out there, are doing more damage than good.

Let’s look at it from another angle.

You’ve probably heard about the placebo effect. They say that about one third of people who take placebos while believing it’s real medication, improve.

Lambert’s pie: common factors in therapeutic success

Then there is the ‘Lambert’s Pie’, named after Michael Lambert, a leading figure in psychotherapy research. This chart can be found in ‘The Heart & Soul of Change: What works in Therapy’ by Duncan, Miller and Hubble. It is the most famous book on research into the effectiveness of therapy.

The funny thing is that a lot of mental health professionals use this chart to promote a ‘person-centred’ approach.

It is true – the relationship between client and therapist is more important than the technique used.

But when you look at the chart as a whole, more than half of a client’s improvement is in the client’s domain.

So, your involvement is essential, for any coaching or counselling you have, to be successful.

You might ask: “but how?”

It’s easy.

Take the first step and decide that you want to change.

Then come with an open mind and heart.

Committed to yourself.

I’ll help you define more specifically a good outcome for you – by asking a lot of questions.

There you go, you have a very large part in healing yourself.

And I am happy to help you with the rest.
