I thought I’d let you know about my experience of my first Healerzone Oxfordshire Meeting in Banbury last night (12/09/16), facilitated by Sarah Sienkiewicz.
Without even thinking about it, I had put my name forward as a speaker and, even though I was very nervous and anxious, I was looking forward to the challenge. I had only given 4 talks so far (Word of Mouth meeting, some years ago; Oxford Yes Group twice; and last year at the International Women’s Day) and didn’t feel very confident at all, yet. Tina Wells was so kind to give Vicky Rainbow, Lottie Moore and myself – the South Oxfordshire girls – a lift to Banbury. What a nice girly journey that was there and back 🙂 I felt more at ease already when we arrived.
We were welcomed very warmly by Sarah and the other ladies. The venue was a fitness centre – a bright room with a kitchen attached – very nice and friendly indeed. We sat in a circle, exchanged thoughts and experience and had lots of time to introduce ourselves as well as ask for anything we needed in terms of support. That was heart-warming. Such amazing, gifted women in the circle – wow!
Then it was my turn – I had half an hour to introduce myself, tell a bit of my story and explain Systemic Constellations (https://silviasiret.com/what-are-systemic-constellations/). I did it, and it felt amazing. I spoke without concept, just from my heart. I’ve taken another courageous step forward by doing this, and the response and feedback was absolutely wonderful and positive. The group felt drawn to this therapeutic approach and wants to do a whole session with me. I feel THRILLED.
You have no idea how much I needed this boost. I was about to find another boring admin job and surrender to fear instead of love. It was not only that I gave a great talk, but also hearing what all the other healers and service providers had to say and to offer. What a great bunch! I feel so at home there and know that I will be supported all the way, but I also know that I have a great gift and will be able to help everyone who asks for it.
I also learned that giving workshop spaces away for free is unnecessary.
I’m also taking part in a 30 day video challenge. In a closed, safe Facebook Group (Light It Up) I am submitting a video of myself to my sub-group every day for 30 days. Wow – that is so empowering! You can still enroll here: www.facebook.com/groups/lightitupvideochallenge
I’m happy to help.
So here I go, all fluffed up, encouraged, motivated and full of beans. Today I’ve signed up for a Weekend Workshop in London with the amazing Stephan Hausner, who facilitates constellations for people with illness (his book: Even if it costs me my life). I know I will learn so much from him; so, this is an investment in my growth. The week before I’ll be in Zagreb, Croatia, for an international gathering of systemic constellators, an amazing opportunity to get to know other practitioners and their individual approaches; but also gives me the feeling of being part of a huge community.
But before all this I’ll give a workshop this Friday (https://www.meetup.com/Systemic-Constellations-Oxford/) and then I’ll go on holiday to Cornwall for 2 weeks with my Beloved. I’ve never been, and I can’t wait to see its beauty.
Wishing you all the boost you need to get/keep going. Here and happy to help and give emotional support. You do need to let your community know if you are looking for support, though; don’t expect them to mind-read 😉
With love and a grateful heart,
