Winter. Isn’t it wonderful? You never know what the day will bring you. Super cold or crazy amount of snow and even some days beautiful sunny days that make you remember what a wonderful season summer really is.
The last big snow storm that we had I was sitting in my bedroom just listening to the howling wind and watching the blowing snow when I faintly heard the sound of the train blaring its horn to make people aware that it was in town. At the time I couldn’t believe that there was something venturing in these 80 km/hour winds and white out conditions. I guess nothing stops the train from reaching its destination, because if it could plow through this recent storm, it could plow through anything.
As I heard this train whistle while I was sitting in my bedroom in the silence of the storm, things started to race through my mind. How symbolic is this train pressing through these crazy winter conditions? Not stopping for anything until it finally reaches its end point. Very much like life, isn’t it? We have to trudge through our snow storms. We have to bear the heat of the summer. And what for? All to get to our final destination of life. Where are you destined? I am still trying to discover this question for myself.
It’s been 27 years since I graduated high school and in these 27 years I’ve gained a lot of wisdom. First I got my degree in Kinesiology, then soon after I became a certified personal trainer. I worked in a physio clinic for seven years and run my own exercise class for 11 years. I thought this was the train track that I was on. However, after working for seven years in a physio clinic I decided it was time for a track change and I went back and did my education degree and have been teaching ever since.
Along with all this voyage I also became a Level 3 certified gymnastics coach and have coached gymnastics since I graduated high school in 1991. I know this isn’t the track that I wanted to be on for life, or a full time job, but it was my hobby that made me happy and fulfilled.
These are just my certifications in teaching, coaching and training of people. In the last three years, I also started venturing on new terrain. Tracks that I never dreamed I would ever find my train wheels upon. I am now a Reiki Master/Teacher. I am certified Mindfulness Practitioner Master. I am also certified in EFT Tapping and now I’m taking a Crystal Reiki Master/Teacher course along with Applying Shamanic and Spiritual Principles to Awaken Your Soul Certification. I’ve taken all this, plus I’ve now written 285 blogs that I’ve posted to this site. Never would I ever thought my train would end up here.
Over my years of being on these train tracks, one thing I do know about myself is that I love to learn, and even more than learning, I love to teach. I want to share all that I learn with the world. I’ve loved teaching from a very young age, and was always one of those people that took control over a situation when nothing was getting done. When I was a gymnast training, other gymnasts would ask me to watch their new skills and I loved giving them feedback, even though I wasn’t the coach, and probably shouldn’t have been saying anything other than, “Great job!”
As my life continues to unfold, and I am tuning in to my soul, my world of teaching seems to be just starting to open up. I love my job as a grade 5 teacher. Spending your day with sweet ten year olds is really the best job out there, but there is one thing that I love more. That is helping people find their own lost soul. I’ve worked with many different people who are lost, and life has gotten them totally off their tracks. Some of them even just want their train to crash so that their voyage could be over. These are the people that I enjoy working with. Convincing them that they are almost at their destination and not to give up on this crazy train ride of life.
Once people finally find their lost soul it is the most rewarding trip of a lifetime. That is when you really want to toot the horn of your train and shout it from the roof tops. Most of the time, this new track of teaching that my train has landed upon isn’t the easiest. It is hard convincing people of this totally brainwashed society that they have a soul bigger than they can imagine, and that it holds such opportunities for them to venture on.
Most of my clients aren’t easily convince and share many of the same common tracks. Life has beaten them down, and their self-confidence is totally off the rails. They just don’t know how to find their way back on their train tracks of life. Through much internal soul searching I seem to manage to help get these people back on track and their train ride starts back up again. This time, however, they are full of confidence knowing that with their soul as their railway engineer they are never going to get on the wrong track of life again.
As A Course in Miracles explains, “The ego seeks to divide and separate. Spirit seeks to unify and heal.” Remember, that it is just your ego trying to ram you off of your train tracks of life. Your soul wants you to cruise and bring you love with others and heal the wounds that the ego has inflicted upon you all your life. Let your soul take control of your train, and then the ride of your life will finally start to get its wheels in motion!
Please let me know if you need any help finding your lost soul and getting your life back on the train tracks of life. I’d love to help!
