Role Plays

The many characters we get to play over the course of our lives

In order to be able to write my inspiring memoir, I had to go way back into my memory bank to retrieve all the pertinent details. What struck most me were the many different roles I have played over the course of my lifetime:

One year, during the summer holidays after grade 10, I became a sales girl for a grocery store. Then my piano teacher trained me to play the organ at church to replace her since she had Parkinson’s and could no longer perform. At university I became a student for foreign languages but also graduated from a course as a nurse’s aide which came in handy on several occasions, especially after my arrival in Canada. Next came wife and mother, the most challenging and life-altering roles. They took the focus off myself and onto the wellbeing of others.

Being a teacher was fun at first, especially when I was dealing with the privileged students at a private school. As a handwriting analyst I was, among other things, introduced to the mind-boggling concept of past lives which paved my path for becoming an energy medicine practitioner. I also trained as a Documents Examiner (forgery detection) which was most engaging and eventually lead to my B.C. Provincial and Supreme court qualifications.

My education as an auricular laser technician (specializing in ear acupuncture), forced me to stretch my mind but also my soul. When I’m engaged in this kind of work, I feel alive. To watch someone come back to health is beyond awesome and keeps me humble. I know that I am a catalyst through which Life works its magic.

Lastly, as a transformational coach I get to interact with people ready to make deep changes in themselves. As a lecturer, workshop facilitator, and course teacher I have the privilege of getting people in touch with their dreams and to watch them take steps in a new direction. They become enthusiastic and dynamic again.

In conclusion I note that my latest role as a published author may not be my last. I have a sense there is more to come. If you are curious about how the details I described above have played themselves out in my life, I invite you to read my book https://dtlc.ca/when-life-has-other-plans-discover-the-hidden-gifts/

I love listening to motivational speakers who, like myself, are committed to empowering others. We are sharing our life skills to fill the holes which people keep falling into and remain stuck in.

I’d like to say that each one of us could start looking at our lives as a story and check out its highlights and create more, and its lowlights and see what we have learned from them.

I was beside myself with joy and gratitude because this was yet another example of how the Law of Attraction comes through when you know how to work it. In my case I simply invite the unexpected and then welcome it with open arms. I’m usually very selective about what I invite – because that’s what I manifest. What we focus our energy on often shows up in our lives, positive or negative. So watch your thoughts!

I would like to say that as a transformational coach I meet many people who feel lost and are overwhelmed by the things that aren’t working in their lives. My advice to them is the same as Anita’s: love and appreciate yourself unreservedly. Count your gifts and your blessings. It may be hard at first but if you persist, you may see positive changes in your health and your environment.
