Workplace Spirituality - Facing the Challenges
I gave up work to be at home with my children and it was a challenge to get back into the workplace. When my youngest son Oliver was 4 I went back to education to learn computer skills. This culminated in a first class honours degree in business studies.
My husband was the main earner and worked in construction, I had always been his mentor/coach as he had no one else to talk with. This taught me a lot about the industry and also developed my coaching skills.
I ended up working in construction and using my skills and talents I developed a successful team however I was very stressed.
It had a detrimental impact on my family. One day I was feeling very sad I went for a drive in my car and sat in tears asking for help. From this moment my life changed, I had an inner strength I now know archangel Gabriel and Jophiel came to guide me. I set goals to leave the job and achieved them 3 months early.
This was the start of an amazing spiritual journey.
Interestingly I find myself 5 years to the day working with my husband as he is at the sharp end in turning a company around, I am a consultant and work on my terms and believe there are lessons to be learned from working in this industry.
By being me and setting boundaries I can be kind and practice my healing (I am a Reiki practioner) by setting boundaries and being lovingly assertive.
My husband and I are learning together. Somedays I want to run away and not enter the negative environment but when I face up to my responsibilities I actually enjoy it. To see people's faces light up when they connect with my energy is wonderful and to know that I am supporting my husband through a difficult time whilst remaining semi detached.
The articles on this site are an inspiration to me.
We can not hide away from the challenges but learn the lessons.
Thanks for the opportunity to share my story.
