Landing My Dream Job

For over 20 years I have wanted to be a training officer and until recently I thought it was going to remain just a dream. However, through learning about true self-care and self-love I have gone from being ‘down and out,’ on the dole, to landing my dream job in just over 3 years.

I come from a family whose members are all claiming disability benefits. They continually argue with their partners and think that is love. I have always known this wasn’t love but didn’t have anything else to compare it with. So I chose to withdraw from life, suffered with psychosis and depression and spent many years claiming Incapacity Benefit.

When I discovered Universal Medicine, my life was in tatters. I was so emotionally scarred, I truly felt I had nothing left to offer anybody, let alone an employer. I had lost my confidence and truly thought nobody would ever want to hire me again.

Then I was introduced to Sacred Esoteric Healing™ and it has completely changed my life. I started to face my hurts, talk about them and explain why that particular thing somebody had said or done had hurt me so much. A lot of my ‘stuff’ came from childhood issues, which was a little embarrassing to talk about sometimes, but I found that talking about it helped me to truly feel what was going on in my body and to let the hurt go – with the loving support of the practitioners of course. Once I let the hurt go I realised that there was no forgiveness attached to the hurt or the person who had caused the hurt. When you truly let go of a hurt and accept your part in it, there is no forgiveness needed as there is no judgement.

Learning Gentleness & Commitment to Life

One of my first lessons was learning gentleness and commitment to life. I learned through one of the Universal Medicine’s practitioners to stop before I said or did anything and to feel my gentleness and then proceed with that quality.

Within a few months of seriously committing to this program, my life started to change. I slowly cut down on my intake of alcohol: I stopped smoking and I started to cut out food that made me feel heavy and bloated. I got a job close to home and life started to feel really good for the first time in a long time. I followed these steps consistently every day – however I wasn’t perfect, I’m still not. Every time I feel I have left my body, I just focus on the quality of my movements and come straight back to me. Then gradually my lifestyle choices changed: I started to watch less TV, I introduced a gentle wind-down routine before bed, and went to bed before 9pm.

My commitment to myself and to life has grown tremendously in the last 3 years, and through the many Universal Medicine healing workshops and Esoteric therapy sessions I have had with many different practitioners, I have let go of many hurts and learned to choose more loving patterns of behaviour.

After working for the same company for 6 months I applied for a team leader role in another department and got it. After gaining experience in this area I felt I had to move on as I wasn’t being paid what I knew I was worth. This was huge for me as my lack of self-worth before Universal Medicine would have allowed me to just take what was on offer. I then applied for a role with a company 20 minutes’ walk from my house and they paid for me to go to college, twice a week for a year, to obtain my CIPD Diploma in Human Resource Practice, even though I wasn’t working in the HR Department. My colleagues were really shocked at this, as the company didn’t usually pay for courses unless they applied to the role you were in.

After qualifying it confirmed what I had already truly known, which was that Learning and Development was the area I needed to be working in.

I moved house and was commuting to London for my job, but started to look for a role close by. I originally started looking for an HR Administrator role as I thought this would be my way of getting on the career ladder in Learning and Development. However, after a few interviews, I realised that I was selling myself short and should just apply for training officer roles and see what happened – another thing to appreciate about how much my self-worth had gone up.

I have also learned through the many Expression and Presentation workshops that Serge Benhayon presents that I don’t need to prepare for and/or control every moment; I don’t need to know everything. The only thing that matters is connecting to my essence, the true me, the love that we all innately are, and bring that love forth in all that I say and do.

Learning to Bring All of Me

In Bringing All of Me to every interview I had, I was able to bring through all of my life’s experiences, which meant being able to answer any question that was thrown at me, calmly and concisely and in doing so, land my dream job. Now I focus on practising this in every moment and more and more changes are happening in my life all the time. I let go of alcohol, cigarettes and ‘recreational’ drugs a long time ago and recently seriously cut down on my sugar and caffeine intake as my body goes into hardness when I have it and I shut down and start arguing with my partner; also I feel racy and anxious in my body which affects my sleep BIG TIME. And without the stimulants I am much more committed to life in and outside of work. I visit my Dad regularly and either clean his flat for him and/or take him out to lunch, which I know he loves. I am also open to deepening my relationships with everyone around me, not just my nearest and dearest.

I have been in my new role for a few months now and it’s very different from any other role I’ve ever had. It needs a lot of hard work as there is a lot to learn, but I’m loving every minute of it. Although I’m working for a finance company and don’t have a financial background, I am learning fast and have started training clients after just a few short weeks. I focus on staying in my body, and as questions are asked I feel that I can connect to what’s needed and answer from my heart.

Life is so simple when we live this way.

  1. A simple and straight forward blog which gives us a peek into a life and how it can change when we truly want it to and make that commitment to ourselves and others.

  2. Amazing truly Amazing 💫 Sacred Esoteric Healing truly gets to the absolute root of hurts etc enabling the person to reclaim the truth of who they are along with this and your commitment to yourself it is very cool to hear about the changes that have happened for you in your life.

  3. “When you truly let go of a hurt and accept your part in it, there is no forgiveness needed as there is no judgement.” How different our world would be if there was no judgement.

  4. “landing my dream job” – when it comes to jobs and landing them they say it’s about ‘moving in the right direction’ — the moving comes from a prior movement of living love.

  5. “I learned through one of the Universal Medicine’s practitioners to stop before I said or did anything and to feel my gentleness and then proceed with that quality.” This is brilliant advice regarding how to bring true quality into our lives.

  6. I love how your gentleness became such a strength for you, something that has seen you through an enormous change in your life.

  7. How often do we sell ourselves short and in so doing sell the world short as well! If we should be a trainer and we are in the office then everyone loses and vice versa. Perhaps the conversation we should be having with our children is supporting them to embrace what they enjoy, what their strengths are, and then supporting them to consider industries and jobs that might suit those skills.

  8. We have so many hangovers from our childhood hurts that live within us and impulse our patterns of behaviour. Yet, if we make the space to understand why we do what we do, we offer ourselves an opportunity to simply let it go, and as you say – no need for judgement “When you truly let go of a hurt and accept your part in it, there is no forgiveness needed as there is no judgement.”

  9. A beautiful example of achieving what is possible when we say yes to love and keep saying yes to loving ourselves. It may mean we learn patience and the beauty of presence facing one step at a time and not placing ourselves in the future which can be so easily to do when we have a dream job to do knocking at our door. When we take each step at a time our dream job is possible and not only that, it is being done in a quality that is being asked for in the bigger picture because of all the necessary loving changes that have been made.

  10. Your blog shows that the key to evolving, changing our circumstances or situation has to come and be initiated from ourselves, there’s nobody else to hang blame on, it’s about taking responsibility. Then with each step, there is support and a constellation that happens.

  11. This is a beautiful blog, showing how with courage we can grow beyond where we have been. This courage applies at all levels, even to those who are doing extremely well – there is more and courage allows us to go there.

  12. “Landing my dream job” – as I’ve found in jobs and being in the recruiting industry myself too, there seems to always be a ‘job before the job’ .. that the preceding job is typically one of preparatory means in which to land the “dream job”. Though it is to not dismiss the preceding job since without having it, our development, learning will not have been completed in the way that was needed …. for us to then consider which job was, in fact, the ‘dream job’?!! Every job counts and thus is a dream job.

  13. It does not matter what job we do as long we commit in full and bring all of us by not holding back our love.
    A job that touches the heart supports the joy and love we can bring.

  14. There are so so so many jobs out there in the world – is it really possible to isolate our ‘dream job’ when we are yet to discover what might be in store for our future, whether it’s in our current profession or perhaps a different one?

    1. I agree with the author that there can be a dream job and then we can do the dream job and it may turn out that no further change is ever needed or that the dream job is a great basis from which to go further.

  15. When started work as a carer, I didn’t know it would become a dream job, but it is. For me a dream job is one in which I fully appreciate and value the opportunity I’ve been given, in this case to live with and support an elder with specific physical needs.

  16. “When you truly let go of a hurt and accept your part in it, there is no forgiveness needed as there is no judgement” – totally; acceptance over judgment paves the way for allowance and allowance generates a space for understanding.

  17. Recently I too have experienced what it feels like to be working in just exactly the place where I know I am meant to be, and the reason it feels so great is because of all the experiences that have lead me to this point, which is very confirming that everything is just as it needs to be – even with all of my mistakes and blunders.

  18. Commitment and purpose. I am realising just how vital these things are in our lives and how anything is possible when we have them. There is no drive in this, just a simple yes to getting stuck in and not giving up despite all the mess we have created.

  19. I truly feel that we are given opportunities to match the level of service we are prepared to give, and that this is read in advance of the job being constellated for us and so a match can be made if we are genuine in our seeking one such situation. The words “bless-ed and blessed are the pure at heart” come to me.

  20. Life holds a simplicity if we allow it. I know I have a tendancy to make things more complicated and then it makes things difficult or hard, but I am learning that at any time I can come back to simplifying things. And when I do that, all of a sudden life takes on a different meaning and feels lighter and so much more fun!

  21. When we commit to life and say yes to what comes our way, it is amazing to feel and see how things can shift and change and open up. It is the way we go about life that determines what comes our way and how we respond to it – are we shut down or open, are we willing to learn and grow or are we holding on to the old and stuck with those things that do not support us? Life is an amazing school and we are the teachers as well as the students all of the time – life abounds with opportunities – the real challenge is to see life as a series of opportunities and growth.

  22. From what I have seen pretty much anybody can get there life more together and this then opens up new possibilities in their work and their life and the consequences may be much bigger and more positive than the changes that seemed to be very small in comparison.

  23. A beautiful sharing of how life can be and the simplicity and allowing of it to unfold before our eyes when we give it our all and live this in every moment in our divine quality and inner connection.

  24. This shows how amazing life can be when we are willing to be connected and to understand who we are from our essence. This is just beautiful to see how we can let go of controlling circumstances and just simply allowing.

  25. “before I said or did anything and to feel my gentleness and then proceed with that quality…” What a difference this makes, not only is it supportive for one’s own body, but this awareness, responsibility, decency and respect is key for all relationships one has with others.
