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. “I was so emotionally scarred, I truly felt I had nothing left to offer anybody, let alone an employer” – It’s so true that how we feel in our personal relationships and life transfers directly to our work, and these two environments are never isolated from each other.

  2. Committing to ourselves, our connection within and making life about this quality in the way we go about life, is a forever deepening process and choice. Nowadays when I step away from this I can feel how it has a huge impact on my day. I have always been focused at work and can now see, thanks to Universal Medicine, that with a connection to this quality first everything changes, and how it can’t just be in work, it needs to be throughout our whole life.

  3. When we begin to realise the power we have in making changes in our life, we can get scared to feel how much we control playing it small or playing it big. Playing it big can be very confronting but this is only so when we do not embrace who we are.

  4. We are the architects of our lives, and this is a powerful realization indeed. This means we can play it small or we can play it big, the choice is ours.

  5. I love reading how people change their lives to come from love, and then doors that open that are magically there when all the trying in the world couldn’t have opened them. A beautiful humbleness of trusting being love and doing ones part, but then knowing that all that unfolds is not of our making, but there waiting for us to step into. Very, very inspiring. Thank you.

  6. When we commit in full to life without worrying or thinking what it will look like, it is amazing what comes our way. Yet as soon as we make it about a picture, or wanting it to be a certain way, then we bring in complication and suddenly it becomes a struggle again. It is like it all gets too magical and amazing that we then face the next thing of can we accept that we deserve it. I know for me this has been tricky and I have at times accepted it, but also have had thoughts of I am not good enough etc.. but also know to remember that nothing is ever offered to us that we have not already said yes to. Yet we can still resist. No pictures, just allowing the love to unfold and then we get confirmed and almost surprised at the same time with what is possible.

    1. Absolutely love what you have shared here James. It is about surrendering to what comes our way and embracing it for what it is – for we are the ones that allow our lives to blossom or not, based on our choices, consistently so.

  7. ‘And without the stimulants I am much more committed to life in and outside of work.’ I have found this too. I am more focussed and have more ability to be present with myself when I have less of the “ose” in my life, whether sucrose or fructose maltose, glucose, lactose, Who would think these undermine our confidence and self worth, but I have found they surely do. It’s interesting because I used to kid myself that these very substances made me feel better because they gave me energy, which they do, but I call them false friends now, because that energy has a price on it.
