Manifesting!

IMG_4865

 

Hi Folks,

I hope you’re all coping with this extraordinary summer weather? Here in the UK we have had sunshine and no rain for over 2 months now. for a country that hopes for the sun every summer, in the middle of our wet and grey days, it’s extraordinary! The last time we had a summer like this was 1976. I’m torn between the desire for rain, for the garden and the farmers and the delight in sunshine and not having to carry umbrellas, jumpers and coats with us, which is our usual summer employment:) We had 1 day of rain here a couple of weeks ago and I don’t think I’m the only one that stood outside and danced in it:) There’s a part of me wondering if I manifested a proper summer as I really wanted one:)

It has, however, allowed me to manifest the time out that I’ve been wanting. The time to just be and to think and to focus on each moment and really live it. It’s been too hot to do anything. Too hot to sit at the computer, too hot to rush around and fill my days with doing, too hot even to plan and consider what I want to manifest:)

At the hottest part of the day, I’ve allowed myself to lie in the shade on my swing and doze and watch butterflies and bees. I’ve gardened in the evening or early morning and realised just how much I can achieve a small bit at a time and that when I’m not beating myself up and “shoulding” on myself, life is so much more enjoyable. I think I needed to let go of old habits and patterns to really experience what life is like without them …..and it’s good:)

I’m remembering yet again that we are powerful manifesters, and when we get clear about what we want in our lives and how we want to feel, attracting that into our lives, is easy. And of course, if it’s not easy, it just means there’s a part of us not on board with the changes we want and that’s tappable:)

The retreat in Slovenia this year was about manifesting and boy did we have fun! You’d have been amazed at the old beliefs that we were all harbouring and of course, most of those beliefs weren’t ours in the first place, they came down the family line. I’m so grateful for the group, who went into the exploration so wholeheartedly. We discovered and cleared so much in the time we were together and we could see how much things had changed and how much clearer we were about what we wanted.

It was such a profound time that I decided that I’d like to share what we did with others, so I’ve created a day retreat, Manifesting – creating the life of your dreams where we’ll be in a lovely venue, with lunch provided, as we clear all those old beliefs that that get in our way and prevent us from even being clear about what we’d like to manifest. We’ll clear all the stuff that’s come down through the family, anything we’re carrying from past lives and then we’ll get really clear about what we want to manifest in our lives and give our subconscious a guidance system to follow, to help us create the life we want to live.

I’m very excited about it as I know the possibilities that we’ll create. if you feel excited too, I’d love you to come and join us.

Meanwhile, enjoy whatever your summer (or winter) is bringing. tune into your life, take time to celebrate all those precious moments, however small and know that you are in charge, it’s your life and you have the right to create it as you’d like it to be, anything other than that, is tappable:) Happy tapping and I hope to see you soon:)

With love from Jacqui

“Yes but’s” and “What if’s”

Following on from the last blog I promised you a follow up video on clearing all the “Yes but’s” and “What if’s.”
Whenever you clear something and the change is likely to take you out of your comfort zone, these pesky things pop up. They’re something to be celebrated, because they are the things that younger parts of you are worried about. Once you know that, you know what to tap on next:) Why not use this video to tap along with me to get you started and see what useful information those young parts of you will share with you? Even if you’ve not just done a big change, you may find some interesting “Yes but’s” and “What if’s.”popping up. Happy Tapping:)

And if you’d like to work with me to clear anything that comes up please check out my website for details:)

Celebrations!!

Happy Belated New Year to you all.

As I always do, I took the opportunity of New Year to look back over the past year and forward to 2016 and this year, for a change, I actually noticed and acknowledged just how far I’d come!

I don’t know about you, but I’m great at focusing on what’s not working and what I don’t think I’ve done well and the things I’m not happy about, about myself and the world and much less good at focusing on what’s worked, what I liked, what I’m happy about!

 I’m great at getting clients and trainees to see the good things, just not so good at doing it myself:))

This year I made a conscious decision to do it differently and it was amazing. I could see how much I’d achieved, I could see the life I’d created and I could see how I’d grown. It felt so empowering. If I could do that, in 2015, I could do even more in 2016 and that felt really positive. It was a great start to the year.

As I considered what I wanted to achieve in 2016 what I found was that I didn’t want to set practical targets. I didn’t want to make decisions of what I would do with the business, what courses I would offer, I was most interested in my feelings and how I wanted to feel about myself and the world. There was a real sense that when I felt good, I’d be open to new opportunities and that they would be easy and things would flow, so long as I was in a good space.

So I started focusing on how I was feeling when I thought about what I was doing. I made decisions based on the feelings and it led to a lot more me time, a lot of moving gently and slowly through the days, than I would normally allow myself.

I was amazed at the lack of stress and how little time it took me to do things when I decided to do them. When I hadn’t been thinking of doing something and then resisting doing it, for days, the energy was there to get going and things took no time at all.

I had to do a lot of tapping as I went along. Parts were in panic because they weren’t being asked to rush around, they told me it wouldn’t work, I wasn’t being a good girl, I’d get into trouble, all the old voices saying all the old stuff and it was so good just to go in and love those frightened parts until they felt safe. As always, it’s all about safety.

So the result of all of this is a relaxed Jacqui who feels more trusting of the universe and herself:) and who allowed herself not to post anything till it felt right and already new ideas are percolating.

The first is a Celebration day. I would love to offer you a day where you can come together and celebrate who you are and what already works in your life and then to use that energy to focus on the coming year and the rest of your life:)

You’ll get into contact with the feelings that are good for you. Find the things that light you up, help you to feel confident and empowered, open you to new magnificent possibilities.

You’ll leave with a guidance system to help you create your life, as you’d like it to be and then we celebrate the year to come and envision the fun, the joy, the glory, the excitement that will be there for us.

If you’d like 2016 to be the most magnificent yet, please come and join me at a live workshop and there will be an online version for those not in the UK starting on 29th March.

I wish you a glorious year, full of fun and laughter and joy and peace and excitement and wonder.

And if you’d like to set that in motion with me, please come and have fun with me and a lovely group of people on 26th March:)

And if you’re not able to come to the workshop, there’s an online program running over 3 weeks from 29th March.

Meanwhile, here’s a tapalong on celebrating who you are

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:)

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)

If you’d like to join me on my workshops or program, here are the dates.

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,

Jacqui

I’m just flipping doing it!!

IMG_3081IMG_3191IMG_3166

 

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

The beginning of the new series of EFT Masterclasses, leading to the EFT Expert qualification.

Full of the joys of Spring!

IMG_2707IMG_2703IMG_2724

Riley rolling down the bank

Since my last Blog, I’ve been really noticing the changes for me. Although nothing changed physically, I’ve still been doing pretty much as I was before the accident and the session after it, actually everything changed, because my feelings have changed. It  was such a great reminder of the power of our feelings. Suddenly, from feeling crowded and busy and hectic, with no time for me, it felt as though the world had opened out and there was space everywhere, between all things and between people too. I found myself moving easily through the day, finding time to walk and take care of myself, getting done more than I usually do and much easier. I had a smile on my face and lightness in my heart. And the only thing that was different was how I felt!

I had a wonderful workshop on Saturday, I do attract the perfect people to work with me and it’s so great to share with others. And what a wonderful holiday weekend we’ve had in the UK. We actually had a sunny Bank holiday, a real rarity here:) I went to a huge adventure playground with my son Sam and his girlfriend and little boy Riley. I even got to roll down a grassy slope, some things are just too much fun to stop doing:) we had a great time and I didn’t find the need to feel guilty once, not even when dinner took longer than expected. We just laughed and decided it would be a takeaway next time!

The learning for me in all this, is to listen to myself and to do what feels good to me. When I find myself drifting into old patterns I’ve reminded myself, that’s old stuff from the past, I don’t do that in the present and it’s been so much easier to stay in this good place. (and of course sunshine helps:) )

I wish you a wonderful Spring time and I’d like you to consider inviting all parts of you to see now as the beginning of the rest of your life. It’s time to let the past be the past and to move forward with what we’ve learnt.

Have a wonderful week, noticing all the wonderful things around you and that includes wonderful you:)

And 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 here’s a tap along about enjoying spring, videoed in my garden by the pond:)

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
