Finding Myself At Midlife
I’ve been exactly where you are.
In my late fifties I realized that I needed to find a new path in regards to work and I wasn’t at all ready to retire. Since my early 20’s I had done one thing and that was to work in the film business. I started as a film editor and segued into producing and loved it. This allowed me to travel all over the world on shoots and I produced every kind of film and video. It was hard work and very stressful but I was good at it and always found projects. Eventually, believe it or not, I admitted to myself that I was bored. I wanted a new career but I was a woman of a certain age.
And that put me in a bind as to the What’s Next. Though I wracked my brains to get inspiration for my what’s next, nothing appealed to me. After two years I realized that my conscious mind was not yielding any ideas so I turned inward to my spiritual life. I directly asked my Spirit Guides to point out a new path and they did so, in several indirect ways. I found clues on the internet and in the newspaper and I even recalled long-forgotten hypnosis sessions for problem-solving. Eureka! I had found my next career as a hypnotist. So, I researched a good school to attend and started studies to become certified.
Once I began to open that world there was so much more than I could ever have imagined. Hypnosis study also introduced me to Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT Tapping) which took me deeper into the subconscious and how to access what I was really thinking and feeling. I wish I had known to use these tools when I was searching for my what’s next. It would have happened faster.
Now I know that these tools can help root out old patterns and beliefs and help get to the bottom of things. They help you know what you’re really thinking and feeling at the deepest level – and that is the ultimate guide.
Yes, you can also turn to your Spirit Guides and ask for guidance. But why wait? Your time is valuable and you may be ready now.
If you’re a woman in the second part of life and you have more to contribute, I would like to help you find your what’s next. It’s a golden age for women of all ages and we are making more of a difference than ever before.
I have offices in Mt. View and Sonoma, California. In addition, I can conduct sessions in both English and Spanish on Zoom, FaceTime or telephone.
