Lighthouses don’t go running all over the island……

 

 


Red Lighthouse with Light Beam at Sunset

“Lighthouses don’t go running all over the island, looking for boats to save.

They just stand there shining”

Ann Lamott

What a perfect quote. Doesn’t it just say it all? I was talking about being a lighthouse to a client the other day and of course, I was saying it for me too. (Don’t you love how your clients help you to learn:) )

I realised that although I know my job is to be me, to shine as brightly as I can, I still get caught up in the old rescuing pattern from time to time and I was doing that in a couple of areas of my life right now. Isn’t it amazing how it just sneaks up on you? One minute you are shining brightly, the next you’re running after those boats and guess what? Those boats are running at least as fast as you are:) you’re never going to catch them and even if you did, they’ll just keep running. Shining is your thing, they may have a different agenda, a different life path and it’s not for you to tell them they’re wrong.

If you are truly embodying you, if you are creating and living your life in a way that supports you, helps you to grow, then you can’t help but shine and in shining, you are inviting others to do the same.

Whether they decide to or not, is none of your business! You are your business and they are their business. It may not be what we were taught as children and it’s still the truth. You can’t make anyone change if they don’t want to and maybe, just maybe, they know what’s best for them in this life. It might not make sense to you, but to a part of them it does.

The most useful thing you can do for them is to shine your own light, wish them well and trust that all is as it should be, trust them to do what is right for them and trust you to know what is right for you (and then tap on any frustration because they just won’t do it your way 🙂 )

Have fun this week, shining your light. If you weren’t responsible for rescuing anyone this week, what would you be doing? Can you invest that energy in yourself? Allow you to shine even more brightly? I’d love to hear how it goes:)

And if you could use a hand in clearing old patterns that are hanging in there, book a session and we’ll get to the root and clear it.

Or join me on the 10th September for EFT Masterclasses online or 12th September for EFT Masterclasses live to learn even more effective ways to use EFT and clear that backlog of your own stuff while you learn:)

Foe those of you new to EFT, there’s also an Introduction to EFT live on the 11th September.

Please pass the dates on to anyone you think might be interested:)

And don’t forget The AMT conference in Eastbourne, where I’ll be talking about Trusting yourself.

And the EFT Gathering in York, where I’ll be talking about Coming Home to Yourself.

These conferences/gatherings are a wonderful way to connect to the EFT community, while seeing what others are doing with EFT. You always leave feeling inspired and uplifted (and of course there’s all the hugs:)

Take wrong turns, talk to strangers:)

IMG_0050

“Take wrong turns. Talk to strangers. Open unmarked doors. And if you see a group of people in a field, go find out what they are doing. Do things without always knowing how they’ll turn out”.   Randall Munroe

Isn’t this a wonderful quote? The essence of living from love and curiosity, rather than from fear.

Those are the things we’re told NOT to do as children and so we stifle ourselves, keep ourselves small because of someone else’s fear.

Where does that come from? From other peoples lives, other times. Times that were different to ours, where starvation, attack, losing all you love was the reality and the trauma of those times gets passed down to us in many ways.

We’ve always known that the fears get passed down by the things that the people around us say and do and now new research at New York’s Mount Sinai hospital with holocaust survivors shows that  trauma is also passed down in the genes. These are things we may have thought were true, but how great to see the scientific evidence for it.

Does that mean we’re stuck with all that fear? Not at all. It is possible to make changes to our feelings and our beliefs right now and as we do, we change the neural pathways in our brains and I believe we also change the genes that are switched on and the way those genes express themselves. If they can be changed by trauma, it follows that they can be changed by the release of trauma.

The limitations that were in place for our ancestors are often no longer relevant for us in 2015 and for the lives that we’re living now and when we release them, we are opening ourselves to creating new beliefs and feelings that are appropriate for who we are and where we are right now! Hurray for Tapping!! We are so lucky to have the skills and understanding that we have now, that weren’t available, even to our parents generation.

It’s time to start again, from where you are now and to create the beliefs and feelings that will support you living the life you want to live now. What a gift to the world that would be:)

And here’s a tapalong to get you started:)

There are so many ways you can use EFT to get you started on a new journey and the courses I’ve created are my way of offering help and possibilities to those who want to live life differently and maybe to help others live their life differently too.

They teach simple and new techniques that help you to get to the heart of what’s keeping you stuck. They teach unique ways of working to create deep and lasting change.

Not only will you finish with a brand new shiny set of tools, but you’ll know how to use them and you’ll have used them to make those changes in your own life. It’s such a win/win. You learn and clear your own stuff at the same time and if you choose to go down that route, you can also become an EFT Expert Practitioner.

Unfinished Past life business and being compassionate to yourself

IMG_0056Isn’t it amazing this work? What a joy to have the power to clear the stuff that gets in our way and of course what brings it up best of all is relationships:)

“Stuff” came up last week for me and I realized that the amount of triggering going on meant that there were a lot of aspects and that they mostly didn’t belong in the present. Generally I find that what goes on now has it’s roots in the past and to clear it properly, the past is where we need to go.

That’s why I developed the Clearing the Ancestral patterns work and the Rebirthing, it makes a huge difference to clients when you can clear that deep stuff first.

I worked with a colleague Sylvia Jackson 

And we got into all sorts:) Stuff I’d not thought of for years and stuff I thought I’d cleared, (funny how that happens isn’t it:) I think it’s just aspects we couldn’t reach earlier,) and of course a lot of it wasn’t mine in the first place, it belonged to my mother and grandmother and probably went back for centuries.

In addition there seemed to be some unfinished past life business going on. Although I don’t talk about past lives to clients unless they mention them, there are ways of using language to clear them, even if you don’t know what they are, without interfering with your clients belief system. ( I teach that as part of the EFT Expert Masterclasses live and Online.)

I personally think that we come in with work to do based on past lives, ancestral survival strategies and what we model from those around us.

In this session, it seemed there were 6 of us linked in this life that had old unfinished business from other lives. As we cleared the unfinished business, I found myself able to reconnect to the resourceful, loving and compassionate self that I like to be. I was able to see people as they are, rather than the enemy:) and I could see me clearly too, with all the light and shadow that is me. Most importantly I was able to feel compassion for me. For the things I’ve been through in my life and for how I’ve responded.

It’s where healing starts, compassion for ourselves. All the blame in the world that we put out there to others, is just a reflection of what we’re feeling about ourselves. When you can love yourself, even just a little bit more each day, we find we can love others too and the world looks a happier place. We’re in an upward spiral and that adds to the joy in the world.

If you need help in finding love and compassion for yourself or those around you, why not book a session with me Jacqui@jacquicrooks.com and clear the stuff that you’re carrying that isn’t yours and then the stuff that is:) Or you could join me on the EFT Expert Masterclasses Live and clear while you learn. They are a lot of fun, you get to connect to lovely people and you learn while you clear your own deep stuff. The things taught on this course are not taught anywhere else and you will indeed be an expert when you’ve integrated them into your work and then you can have fun refining them and making them your own, in your own unique way.

Here’s a Tapalong on clearing past lives 

 Coming soon.

Kicked by a bean!!

IMG_2067

As you may know, I’ll be a Grannie in November. It’s so exciting and when Reema my daughter in law visited last week I had a word with him or her:) They don’t want to know the sex, but there’s definitely a feeling that he’s a boy and probably a footballer, though I guess she could be a girl tap dancer:)

Anyway , Little Bean as the baby is known is very shy. (S)he doesn’t co operate with scans, so it’s difficult to see him/her and when you put your hand on her/him while (s)he’s kicking (s)he stops.

 

A wriggly Bean kicking during the scan:)

I’d done some surrogate tapping for her/him a few days before, after (s)he had a fright, and I really wanted to connect with him/her, so I said “This is Grannie Jacqui, it would be lovely if you could kick me to say hello, ” and (s)he did. there was a moment of thinking about it and then a kick straight into my hand and a few wriggles for good measure. It was so lovely to feel that life there, preparing to come out and live in the world.

The he/she conundrum reminds me of working with clients when they say, ” I was supposed to be a boy (or girl) and I was a disappointment” “I wasn’t supposed to be who I am.”

We’re so lucky that we can use EFT to clear emotions and beliefs right back from the time in the womb and it’s great that I know about the problems it can cause so that we can tell Little Bean that he/she is loved and welcomed whatever sex or character (s)he is.

If you are having a baby, or know someone who is, think about what would be really helpful for them to know. Share it with them. They will connect with you and that understanding will be with them when they’re born. What a gift:)

It’s never too late to make changes for yourself either. If your birth was less than perfect, if you picked up limiting beliefs based on what was going on for you, you can use EFT to clear what doesn’t work and give yourself new information that will be useful for you.

I explain and demonstrate how in my Rebirthing yourself, Rebirthing your children DVD and you could experience it for yourself In the Masterclass live series, or the Masterclasses online, both starting in September. You could even book a session with me and go through it one to one.

This work makes a huge difference to people. Life really does change when you’re no longer carrying those old mistaken beliefs and when part of you knows that you are always in the right place at the right time, with the right people, doing the right thing.

As David Hamilton say, “You can only do it right.” and what a relief it is when we believe it:)

Here’s a tapalong to remind ourselves that we didn’t have all the information that we needed to make the decisions we made about ourselves, when we were born and that it’s ok to let them go now.

And if you had problems connecting to the tapalong in last weeks blog, here’s the link again. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjSPHeYuOPM (full link as the hyperlink still seems not to work)

Tell me the old, old, story and cherry picking:)

IMG_3614

Hi Folks,

I’m back home now and suddenly I’ve found myself back in the middle of an old story I thought I’d let go of, after much tapping, several years ago! How many times have we done that I wonder:)

I found myself repeating it endlessly, to myself and anyone else who would listen. I’d rehearse it, look for justifications for it, generally wallow in it and even the part that usually tells me off for doing that was silent. I actually found a family member who acknowledged it and that really gave me joy. See I was right!!! It did happen like that!! It’s wasn’t fair!!

And where did all of that get me? In a very uncomfortable place, feeling feelings that weren’t appropriate for my life now, disconnecting me from people I’d prefer to be connected too and actually disempowered.

I’d chosen to step back into the role of victim and as we all know, that keeps us small and stuck. It’s impossible to live your life openly and joyously and to express who you are in the world, in all your multicoloured glory, when you’re curled up in a ball as a victim:)

It took some tapping, and some emotion code and support from friends, (thank you:)  ) before I could see what I was doing and that it wasn’t where I wanted to be, or who I wanted to be.

It feels great now, as though I can breathe more deeply, move more freely and really connect to the world and the people in it. I’m me and they are who they are and it’s all perfect. We’re all doing a great job in the best way we know how and that’s OK:)

So I created a tapalong on telling the old, old story, and if you resonate with this, it’s for you:)

If you’d like to edit your story, or even write a new one and you’d like my support, you can

Book a one to one session with me

Do the Introduction to EFT day on 11.09.15

Join EFT masterclass live, becoming an EFT Expert on 12.09.15 in both these workshops you’ll get to clear a lot of “stuff” while you learn.

Join EFT Masterclass online – creating an EFT expert toolkit on 10.09.15 You’ll get to clear stuff as you practice with other trainees:)

And the cherries are from my tree. It’s not the picking that takes the time, it’s the stoning and while I was doing that, there was time to think, which gave me insights on what to tap on.

I wonder how you give yourself time to think and connect with yourself? I’d love to know:)

With love from Jacqui

What’s the similarity between Noseeums and limiting beliefs?

You don’t see them, you don’t feel them and you definitely know when they’ve been doing their thing!!

IMG_3536

Fresh from camping in the Adirondacks, where the first sign I had been bitten was blood dripping down my face, I was thinking how amazing it was that I hadn’t felt a thing. And then I started to think about limiting beliefs. They work in just the same way.  Mostly you don’t know they’re there and you don’t know that they’re working, until you see the results. You may not get blood dripping, but the results can be just as dramatic. If you want to know what your limiting beliefs are, just look at what you’re not happy about in your life. What must you be believing to have created that? How could you clear the early roots of those beliefs? What would you like instead?

Years ago, when I was first working for myself, I had a couple of months with a lot of clients and I was making good money. Afterwards, when I thought about it, I remembered saying to myself, this is too good to last. And guess what, it was! I managed to get all my clients to cancel and the phone stopped ringing for 2 whole weeks, until I’d tapped out all those old limiting beliefs. I did it twice before I got them all!!

Of course I still find old beliefs popping up, but theses days I don’t beat myself up in the same way, I know it’s just a belief and I can do something about it. Isn’t it great not to feel so much a victim as we did before we found tapping?

Still, I did find it hard to deal with the “I’m being attacked,” belief started by all the bugs in the camp and in Vermont. I get really interesting allergic reactions to mosquito bites, (and they really do love me!) I know that I “should” be able to do something about it, I have on 2 occasions before, but this time it was overload and I just wallowed for a while:) And that’s OK! I’m allowed!! And I had a great time in spite of it:) I was with interesting people and I IMG_3555kayaked and canoed and one day, while I was swimming in the lake, I turned round and there was a loon swimming with me!! They’d been serenading us each night and I’d wanted to see one and there it was, no more than 6 feet from me, looking at me. I felt so privileged and as though I’d been a really good manifestor.

Then I spent a weekend with the lovely Carol Bemmels,IMG_1339 poet extraordinaire and a great group of tappers, in Vermont, followed by a night hosted by Jade Barbee, part of the AAMET training team. I’m back in Nyack now, preparing for the workshop, Looking forward – Creating the life you want to lead, on Saturday. What a lucky bunny I am:) And it does show what we can manifest as we clear those limiting IMG_1338beliefs. Ten years ago I decided I wanted to create a business that would allow me to travel and to work wherever I am in the world. I did it, much more easily and sooner than I expected and for the last 10 years I’ve presented at conferences and Masterclasses and run workshops worldwide.

That might not be what lights your fire and I wonder what does? What would you like in your life? What would you like to be doing. Where would you like to be? Who would you like to be with? What stops you attracting that right now? What are you saying to yourself? That’s a great place to start tapping?

If you’d like help to clear your beliefs, you could book a session with me, or even better, join me on my EFT Expert training, Masterclass program, where you’ll get to learn all the techniques that I use with my clients, while you clear your own stuff.

It will be a small intimate group in my home, so that you get the most from it and you will definitely be in a different space by the end:)

I love teaching these techniques, most of which are not taught anywhere else. If you want to stand out and to be the best practitioner you can be, please come and join me in September. If you have no previous experience of EFT, there is an Introduction to EFT day, the day before the program starts.

The tapalong this week will be in the newsletter, if you’d like to receive it, the link is on this page

I hope to see you soon:)

With love,

When mum gets mad!

IMG_3494IMG_3504

The school kids who kept us entertained:)

Mum at the sea

Hi Folks,

I’m just back from a week at the seaside with my mum and what an experience it was!

We had a good journey down and the next day we were on the beach followed by accident and emergency in Poole until 4 am! Mum was really ill and with such a high temperature that she was very confused. A drip and antibiotics and the holiday restarted 🙂

What came from that for me was seeing how quickly I can return to the little girl STILL!! after all this tapping, when mum gets mad! She was mad with me for dialling 111 and having to talk to the operator who said she needed A&E, so mad that she said she wasn’t going and my little girl said OK!

It took a friend looking up her symptoms on google and telling me to get her to hospital to bring me out of that scared powerless place and into the adult who did what needed doing and of course when I was in that adult, resourced space, mum responded differently. It never ceases to amaze me that it only needs one person in a relationship to do things differently, for things to be different. It gave me the ability to stay detached from the old stuff for the rest of the holiday and to find humorous ways to challenge old patterns.

We had a great week and got to know each other better. I could see much more clearly that what my little girl part thinks is an attack, is just mum feeling fearful and needing information to feel safe. it meant I could stay in my adult space and give her what she needed. Now we have new challenges as the doctor tries to find out what’s going on and we’ll survive it I’m sure, thank goodness for tapping and good friends:)

I wonder what old patterns are still popping up for you? Here’s a tapalong to start the process of change:)

And if you have relationship patterns you’d like to let go of, why not treat yourself to a session with me and get started? 🙂 jacqui@jacquicrooks.com

Thankful, grateful, blessed

Hi Folks,

That’s how I’m feeling at the moment.

I’m In Slovenija To run a workshop on the Enneagram and a retreat on Making next year different.

I flew into Trieste, Italy on Saturday, to be greeted by this lovely bunch and taken to the sea for a picnic and swimming. What a great time we had:)

IMG_3308

Next day it was the Enneagram workshop. It’s the first time I’ve run it and I think it won’t be the last. It reminded me of what a great tool it is and how important it is for us to know about ourselves and understand why we do the things we do. It gives us so much power. if you google enneagram, there’s a lot of information out there. Keep you eyes open for the Enneagram and EFT workshop I’m planning for later in the year in the UK:)

The weather here is interesting! it’s been 32 degrees and humid. my worst nightmare and what a relief to discover that all the tapping I’ve done on the panic that heat and humidity creates in me seems to have paid off! Yesterday I spent the day in Ljubljana moving from cafe to cafe, in the shade, relishing the breeze along the river and eating wild strawberries.

IMG_3324IMG_3336

Today I came to Lake Bled, with Pika, who is the main EFT trainer in  Slovenija and who arranges the retreat for me and we ambled along the lanes and up the hills picking wild strawberries and looking at the wild flowers.

IMG_3347

I got to Bled in time to swim before a storm appeared and I got wet and much cooler!! That’s what happens when you try to influence the weather:) I’d been asking for it to be cooler for the retreat, no more than 27 degrees and preferably 24, so being out in the afternoon would be bearable. it seems we’re on the way to doing that. It was forecasting 31 and 32 for the retreat and now we’re down to 28 and 29. it’s amazing what we get when we ask:) And thanks to my dad who always seems to help out with the weather:)

I’m in a lovely room overlooking the lake and the castle and I have a balcony and air-conditioning!!! Phew, what a relief.

IMG_3392

 

I’m finishing writing this a day later. I’ve hired a bike this morning and cycled round the lake and swum in 2 different places. It was so lovely, in the beautifully clear water, smelling the linden blossom and the pines. That’s when I realised that a part of me didn’t think it was real, it thought I was faking it and not being truthful when I was sharing it with you! It’s obviously still working on old information and beliefs, the “things like this can’t happen to me,” kind of thing. Some tapping needed I think:)

I wonder if there’s any area of your life that’s changed for the better, that part of you hasn’t caught up with yet? If so, just giving it new information while you tap will probably be enough to bring it up to date.

Looking forward to the retreat and seeing old and new friends while we find ways to make next year different, (in a good way!!!)

I do love running these retreats. 4 days gives us such space and time to go really deep and then prepare ourselves for going out into the world again. The group bonds in such a lovely way and friendships are created and maintained for years, creating a support network for people.

It’s all good and I truly do feel thankful, grateful and blessed, for the people, especially Pika and for the opportunities I have.

If you’re not managing to create the life you want, Have a think what beliefs might be holding you back.

if you think tapping with me would be helpful, I’ll be back at the end of July, after various junketings:) You could mail me to book an appointment, jacqui@jacquicrooks.com

And of course you could join me for the EFT Masterclasses live, which start on 12/9/15.

Whatever you’re up to have a wonderful summer and remember, more is possible than you’ve ever dreamed of:)

With love from Jacqui

I’m just flipping doing it!!

What I’ve been doing while I procrastinated:) 

Hi Folks,

Well I’ve finally got back to blogging and newslettering. They say that you teach what you need to learn and procrastination has always been one of the things I teach and learn about!

A little while ago, I decided to dedicate Mondays to blogging and newslettering and it worked really well and I enjoyed doing them. I would think about them over the weekend and it felt great to sit down and write them first thing on Monday.

And then came my time in the States, where I didn’t keep Mondays for work and I got home on a Tuesday, to 3 weeks worth of emails and spam, so I put my energy into dealing with that.

And then as I’d not stuck to my Mondays, it was easier to say, oh, I’ll do it later in the week, and then, ….well no one seemed to mind that I didn’t do it last week, so maybe it won’t matter if I leave it to next week!! And so it went on.

The amount of energy I expended thinking about doing it and telling myself off because I wasn’t doing it could have written the blog and the newsletter multiple times! It was such an old pattern and I really don’t know…yet….why it reemerged, but I’d like to thank Sylvia, who told me about her new strategy, JFDI! It stands for just flipping, (or you can add your own version:) ) do it and so I am! Instead of thinking well I haven’t got long, and maybe I’ll wait till I have more time, and it’ll be better when I’m more clear about what I want to share, I’m JFDI and it feels good!!

I’ve written this in 10 minutes, which part of me thought I needed half a day?

And rather than set up my office to record the tapalong, I’ve done it right now in the conservatory and it’s done the blog’s done and I can send it out!! How cool is that? It’s always so much easier than we think it is!!

So happy tapping and enjoy JFDI and why not email me to tell me what happened for you?

And there’s more! I wrote this on Friday and then didn’t send it. I kept looking at it and it still didn’t go, so some thinking and tapping later I had a realisation.

Some of you will have heard me talk about the enneagram, a personality type system that I find really helpful. there are 9 types and I’m a 9. I’m a peacemaker and a peacemakers biggest problem is procrastination. When I’m in fear mode I go to 6 and when I’m feeling good I go to 3 which is the achiever. I realised that I’d been trying to make a decision about something that would affect other people as well as me and the 6 part of me was screaming, No!!! Don’t do it!!! Very loudly. The 3 part of me was shouting JFDI and so my peacemaking part, who likes everyone to be happy was frozen in the middle, because she couldn’t help both parts get what they want and I realised for a 9, that is probably the cause of the procrastination! I love it when I get insights:) A good bit of tapping later, and I’m ready to post, though I lost the additions once already. I guess the 6 part was winning then:)

And the reason the enneagram came to mind? My upcoming workshop and retreat in beautiful Slovenija. If you haven’t booked, there’s still time and I can guarantee you’ll fall in love with the place and the people and you’ll set yourself up for big changes:)

With love from Jacqui

Gathering lilacs with Gran

lilac_branch

Hi Folks,

How amazing! I was having a session with my colleague when she heard the song “I’ll gather lilacs in the spring again.” I said that’s my Grans favourite song and then she was there, giving me the message that it was important that I started to trust myself with money! it took me straight back to childhood holidays when the money that Papa gave me that I was forced to save for holidays, was given back to me. I was so resentful at having to save it!! And when I finally got it what I did with it was supervised. I remembered so clearly being told I couldn’t spend it all now, “When it’s gone, it’s gone!” “You’ll be sorry later on if you spend it now.” and so many other instructions and limiting beliefs. And what I realised I had done from that was created a belief that money only goes out until it’s gone. It never comes back in. It matches perfectly with what I’ve worked on in the past, only seeing money leaving, never noticing it arriving, even though it has to arrive in order to leave again!

As you’ll know if you’ve been following the blog, I’ve done a lot of work around Money, preparing for the Money Programs, and it was so great to get this extra insight and so clearly. It’s a perfect example of how we work with EFT. We clear the stuff that we can see and that is available and then we carry on with life, ready to notice the next layer that wasn’t available to us before. Not every message comes to us as clearly as this did, from my Gran, but if you notice the things that are going on in your life, with a sense of curiosity and “I wonder why that happened then.” you’ll find ways to access the messages that are there for you.

The reason I was in the position to receive this message was because I’ve been in what I would call a “floppy” state for a couple of weeks now. I’ve not been doing things that I thought I “should” be doing, (and of course getting mad with myself because of it, even while my rebel was going “Shan’t!”)

I went back into the “I’m not sure if I should be doing this” place. The “what am I here for and what do I want to do” space and then not giving myself time to think things through, or tune into what was really important to me. I was far to busy not doing things!

Then on Friday I took my son and his wife to Heathrow to catch the plane for their honeymoon in New Zealand. 3 hours there and 3 hours back and I was tired when I got home at 10 pm. I parked and started to unload. I was just collecting the 2nd lot of stuff when I realised that the car, with the front door wide open was going past me, fast, I’d obviously not put the handbrake on properly and for once I’d not left it in gear. I had seconds to decide what to do before the door would be torn off by the gate post. I went to close the door and then thought I might be able to get the brake on, pulled the door wider, ran around it and tried to pull the brake on but was at the wrong angle and hadn’t the power. I turned and was trapped between the car door and the gatepost. The scream woke the next door neighbours and then I had to push the car far enough to free myself and get into the car, without doing even more damage to the door. I managed it and immediately rescue remedied and arnica ed myself. The door was sprained and I was bruised, new ones appearing daily:) and I spent several days feeling very wobbly and tired.

I can recognise a message when it hits me that hard so I did something about it! I booked a session with a colleague to get some clarity on why part of me thought it was necessary to do something so dramatic. We looked at trapped, facing the wrong way and going backwards. I’d had several dreams of driving round in circles:)

There were so many great insights and lots of clearing of things from this life and from past lives. And then there was the message from my Gran!

I’m so grateful to have received that insight so clearly, along with others about giving myself time to be with myself and decide what’s important to me. I’m so happy to recognise that the rebellion I was feeling had a purpose. The way I was moving forward just wasn’t right for me, there are so many more congruent ways for me to get out the message of what I can offer and of course one of them is people who like what I do, sharing that information and my details with others who might like it too. I love working in that organic way. Living my life, enjoying being here and sharing what I’ve learnt with people who want what I have to offer.

So…. if you know anyone who might like to share in some of the things I do, it would be wonderful if you could forward my newsletter to them, or a link to the blog, or to a youtube video. the best recommendations are always personal and I know anyone that comes through any of you will be my ideal clients:)

And of course, if there’s a course that you’re interested in and you’d like to gather a group of people, I’d love to come and share with you:) why not email me and we can talk about what’s possible:) jacqui@jacquicrooks.com

And meanwhile, here’s a video tapalong on listening to the messages:)

With love from Jacqui
