I founded Therapeutic Touch on these principles in June of 1989. With a pledge and commitment to share this extraordinary discovery with the world, the journey as a passionate holistic entrepreneur began.
The path wasn't always clear but sometimes we just know when things are right.
I knew it was time to get out of my head and into my heart. Help others. Make a difference. Live inspired.
29 years later is a good time for contemplation...🎂
Birthdays and anniversaries are a wonderful time to reevaluate and celebrate. And we get a free pass to be sappy and sentimental too.
How have I grown? What have I learned?
Here are some of the important lessons and takeaways....(in no particular order)
1. Have the courage to be real...Live authentically!
2. There's a greater force at work in our lives. Pay attention....
Watch for the signs. Listen for the whispers.
3. Doors will open. Doors will close. Allow life to unfold & Trust the Universe.
4. Listen to your gut. Trust your intuition. It rarely leads you wrong.
5. Be honest. ALWAYS speak the TRUTH.
6. Don't quit! Never give up but know when to course correct.
7. There will be trials and challenges. (Recessions and natural disasters)
Hang on. Ride the waves. Don't jump out. STAY in the canoe and KEEP paddling.
8. Let go of what you can't control. It drains way too much energy otherwise.
9. Strength lies in BALANCE. At times, be GENTLE & other times, be STRONG.
10. Know your purpose. Remember your mission. Lead with your values.
11. It's the little things that matter. Take care of them and the big stuff falls into place.
12. Presence and intention are paramount.
13. The lightest TOUCH can HEAL.
14. Pain and trauma (physical and emotional) are stored in the body. Create a safe space and letting go will happen.
15. Laughter is healing. So are tears.
16. Judge no one. Live open-minded and open-hearted. We don't always know what others are going through.
17. Treat others how you wish to be treated. Be kind. Be cheerful. Be reverent. Every human being is sacred.
18. Talk less. Listen more. Value confidentiality.
19. Invest in learning. Share what you know to help others.
20. When you are ready...the perfect teacher will appear.
21. We can't give from an empty cup. First and foremost, TAKE GOOD CARE of YOURSELF!
22. Stay hydrated. Often when we think we're hungry or tired, we're just thirsty. Drink plenty of water.
23. NURTURE YOURSELF! Rest. Sleep. Move your body. Stretch. Nourish your senses. And above all else, wear comfortable shoes AND don't forget to BREATHE.
24. Live a life of SERVICE. Ask, how can I HELP? Focus on GIVING, not getting!
25. Don't panic- tests are for personal growth.
26. It takes a great TEAM of heart-centered therapists and like-minded, caring individuals to create HEAVEN on EARTH! 🤗
27. Have courage and don't be afraid to DREAM BIG!
28. What we appreciate, appreciates! Practice GRATITUDE...Everyday Be GRATEFUL
29. LOVE Is the GLUE that holds us together!
Love love love!! ❤️❤️❤️
By the way, did you know that it takes the planet Saturn 29.4 years to orbit the Sun once? Its hard to believe that Saturn has circled the sun only once while I've been busy living this fulfilling and adventurous life. 💫
I THANK my lucky stars, the DIVINE powers ruling this Universe and each and every person that I've met along this journey thus far.
"Saturn doesn't ask you to give up your dreams, only to make them real" (thank you Steven Forest for this GREAT quote)
Feeling grateful and lucky...blessed to be living my dream life.
Thank you for your support and being part of the Therapeutic Touch Adventure!
