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. ‘ When you truly let go of a hurt and accept your part in it, there is no forgiveness needed as there is no judgement’ – This is gold, how many things would change if we all took accountability for choices and then as you say there would be no judgement as it’s about learning and evolving together.

  2. In interviews a question is never asked just for the sake of the question, but is designed to receive a response which gives the interviewer more of an insight into an applicant’s values, e.g. their integrity, responsibility, attention to detail etc. Instead of trying to calculate what they are attempting to reveal through a question, as you’ve shared we can bring our all and represent all of our incredible qualities in how we present ourselves and each answer. No overthinking required.

  3. The thing I love about working at a job that is loved, is how mistakes are taken so much more lightly because they are seen as part of becoming a master of what is already great.

  4. This is an amazing turnaround, it doesn’t surprise me though, as you are one of hundreds that have completely transformed their lives since meeting Serge Benhayon – true miracles happen when you begin to let go of old hurts and commit to life in full.

  5. Landing a job it rather like turning over snap cards, making a match. It can only be a true match if the true impulse and constellation is there in the first place and then it is just a matter of playing out that truth.

  6. What we base our dream job on can differ. For some it could be a picture of the ideal career and life which is usually based on security and comfort. For others it may be a true sense within of something they know they would like to do but often struggle to make it a reality. Either way, the “dream” job comes from living you, the true you in your life. And this means not holding back and hence continually honouring the truth you feel from you inner most within.

  7. “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” – it’s amazing how effort applied into something like being on the dole, giving up on life through being uncommitted in having a job [when one is otherwise fit and healthy to be working] can be reverted into your own example Anonymous. It just shows what can be done when the quality of love is applied over the quality of all that’s not our natural way.

  8. Absolute miracles happen when we commit to life. It is the much needed alchemy in the crucible we are. No matter our background, we should never underestimate the power we have when we make life about Love and Truth and the practical application of this in our daily living. It is the beholding light that resurrects us all.

  9. ‘I have always known this wasn’t love but didn’t have anything else to compare it with.’ How true is this for most in life? And herein clearly lies our sole purpose, to be this reflection of love, true love, so that those who seek will be able to find it.

  10. Often, we get stuck in a rut. A rut we have made through our own choices, but one nevertheless we feel we are a victim of and will never get out of. You show, that through making different choices and being committed to change ‘miracles’ do and can happen.

  11. The beauty of this is immense in sharing with us the quality and love we all are, and the living of this in connection to ourselves and the universe as one. True healing and dedication to life and ourselves in this is remarkably possible and changes everything as seen here so simply and clearly.

  12. Sacred Esoteric Healing is an amazing modality, the level of healing that it can support is truly profound and the ripple effects of this in our society are clearly exemplified to me in all the changes you have made so far in how you live everyday and your commitment to life.

  13. I love your use of the word ‘commitment’ in the sentence ‘And without the stimulants I am much more committed to life in and outside of work.’ It made me realize how often we think we commit, but don’t commit in full: only one foot in the water and the other foot stays on land. Without commitment to life and work life is not joyful and things don’t get an honest chance.

  14. ‘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.’ This is amazing and is the greatest testimonial for The Way of The Livingness.

  15. We feel so lucky when our job os something we love to do every day, because it is such a large part of our lives, but you show how it comes about through our choices, and our commitment to life.

    1. Agreed Gill, it shows that every job can be our dream job and from my experience and employing hundreds of people its easy to see that its hardly ever about the job but more often about the person that means they are either willing to enjoy work or not.

  16. “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…” Sometimes others see your potential and greater capacity than we do ourselves… To be offered this opportunity is an example of great managers and workplace to assist their staff to realise their potential – This is what workplace environments and relationships between managers and staff should be about… to evolve people as this benefits and ultimately evolves and inspires the wider community.

  17. Being a Recruiter myself I cannot help but love seeing how your career trajectory has taken shape over the months and in very quick succession given your “all-giving” Anonymous – it’s testament to the fact that it’s not always or so much the specific skills and background that land us the job, but instead the attitude or energy [of our own fullness of worth, value] we are in and live to deliver it. Something – i.e. that pith or zest felt in commitment – which employers do pick up on and look to cultivate, and equally promote.

    1. I absolutely agree, Zofia. In the Netherlands there is a new trend where they don’t want see your CV (or resume) anymore, but just want to hear why you would fit the job and what you bring for it. Every recruiter and employer can feel energy and can feel your commitment, and that counts more than your past experience.

  18. When we do not go into judgment and blame there is a whole lot more room for understanding for another and also our part that we bring to situations and interactions.

  19. This is a beautiful example of how people really do notice someone living life from their true quality and loving essence. Doors open and flow and evolution and expansion happen so much faster, and all as a result of the choices we are making.

  20. So beautiful to hear after putting yourself first and committing to your self healing you have been able to change your life around. Just goes to show anything is possible, when we choose to take responsibility for our own lives.

  21. Very inspiring to feel and read that committing to what you know you are capable of and your full potential, you are confirmed and appreciated in this which has been reflected in your salary. Appreciating what we bring and not being shy at getting stuck. And pulling up our sleeves is super cool and always remember that it is first about our quality no matter what.

  22. I just love the work you have put in here to get where you have got anon, sure you have been helped along the way but it is your commitment and hard work that has got you where you are today, keep it up for it will only get more and more amazing as this is only the beginning.

  23. This is so important… “When you truly let go of a hurt and accept your part in it, there is no forgiveness needed as there is no judgement.” We are often our own worse critics – judging ourselves harsher than anyone else ever would – so in reality, by letting go and accepting our part in something we are actually forgiving ourselves for judging ourselves.

  24. “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.” How powerful this is. It’s so easy to disconnect and go into doubt about what we know, especially in a new job. Even if we do not know the temporal or practical answer, we can stay present and committed to ourselves in the moment and guide ourselves through it. I’m still learning this one.

  25. “Landing My Dream Job” – when our internal job and the specific chapter of healing we are on is completed then naturally we move on to the next page, to the next job.

      1. Agreed the idea of that dream job often comes from the fact it will be the answer to all our problems, when we take the time to heal we then end up not needing a job to be the answer but we are all of us in whatever job it is that we do and that is always going to be ‘a dream job’.

  26. I can read again and again about ‘learning to bring all of me’ and that this is without perfection. When I hold this teaching in my day I can feel myself filling up from the inside out. My part is to simply let this expansion continue and not let thoughts, patterns or long held beliefs deflate me.

    1. Yes Matilda, and for me “bringing all of me” is being fully present with my body and absolutely honest about what is going on and my feelings. This stops the arrogance of thinking I am “sorted” and know the answers to everything and have to be that perfection you mention. It also makes whatever situation we are in a full and rich experience. That way we do expand.

  27. I love how being and bringing all of you meant you had all the wisdom that you’ve lived with to respond to whatever questions came your way at the interview but also in life. It’s making me appreciate that my experiences are invaluable when I start to appreciate the learnings I’ve received.

  28. There is a big difference between cutting things out of our lifestyle or diet based on what someone else has said to us we ‘must do’, and constantly refining and reevaluating our food choices, behaviours, sleep, activity levels etc. to maximise everything we are.

  29. This blog shows me that we can change the direction of our lives, we can make different choices. It does of course make a huge difference to find Universal Medicine, as it is to me the only company out there that is sincere in what it offers and it actually does work. I am the living proof of this.

    1. Mary I stand by you as Living proof as well, Living proof that life does not need to be a constant roller coaster and it can feel incredible to be who we are. To have the freedom to move and express from our divine essence rather than what we think society needs us to be.

    1. Absolutely, role models are very powerful, they have been a life changer for me, Serge Benhayon and his family have all been role models for me, and continue to be. My life has changed so much, I am now just beginning to live my true essence.

  30. A beautifully inspiring sharing to read your commitment to yourself and life with true quality, care and understanding with the healing you have been offered and embraced. Magical and beautiful how one can turn around one’s life with the expansion and joy this allows.

    1. It is a great inspiration for others, how one can turn around their life through self commitment, deepening ones quality and care and allowing the support of true healing.

  31. “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.” This is inspiring Anonymous. It really is remarkable as to what is possible when we choose to take true care of ourselves.

  32. “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.

    1. When we take responsibility in one area of our life we reflect the change to another area. We just have to choose the journey of connecting back to our true essence.

  33. 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.

  34. 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.

    1. And it is not something extra or outside of ourselves that we have to do (which is what I always thought and therefore got overwhelmed about), it is about letting ourselves be ourselves; simply letting our natural qualities come to the fore and be part of everything we do do.

  35. 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.

  36. 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.

  37. 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.

  38. ‘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.

      1. The more we simply focus on the next step step rather than the ones ahead of that or ones previously then everything takes care of itself as what follows is guaranteed by the quality of energy we take the next step in, so rather than worrying what will happen or what it will look like we just need to focus on the quality we are choosing to live by.
