I want to help others and give back, that’s my goal.

Prior to starting my course, I was feeling a little lost. I love structure, and what I do within my life needs to have meaning, and I just wasn’t seeing that anymore. Therefore, when I made a decision to change paths and start this course, I wanted to embrace change.

Within the first week of starting my course work, I found an instant connection, I was fascinated and everything I read really caught my attention, and I wanted to read more, it was hard to put it down. I’ve surprised myself, I have gained so much in such a short period of time, I feel like I have finally found something that I want to do and tell people about all the time. I have learnt so much about meditation, I’ve always wanted to understand and take part in meditations, but I was reluctant to do so because I didn’t know if I could do it.

I have gained a strong understanding of all the different types of meditations available and I have realised that you need to find the style of meditation that works for you. There is a meditation style for everyone, it’s just finding it! I have spent most of my life living in FFR mode; I have now gained the ability to understand my mind and body so that I can now recognise the triggers, and take steps to manage the worry and, or stress (I now always think, are they avoidable or unavoidable – this helps me manage the situation). It allows me to keep calm and stops me from freaking out. I feel so much more confident in myself, knowing that I choose what I accept and what I don’t, I can stop worrying about the past and in some cases the future and live for the now; I can choose to do that (life has a new meaning when you can take control and have a choice).

This course has opened my eyes to a whole new life, I have gained so much knowledge about me, and this course was always about helping me to understand who I am and how life can be, if I choose it to be so.  I feel like I now have the tools to help people, to assist them in building their confidence and being able to listen, this was difficult for me previously as I lived my life in a blur, nothing was that important, there was no control it was just busy, busy, rush, rush!

However, this new learning has turned my life upside down, which is a new concept to me, but it’s so positive and exciting, I look forward with pure happiness for the future. I am not the person I used to be, I have gained back the excitement and inspiration to take care of me…I come first. I’m a much healthier, positive, exciting and happier me.

I want to help others and give back, that’s my goal – Tracy.
