Hope you are having an exciting New Year and have taken the time to clear out the clutter and energy drains from 2008. I must say I have had quite a ride between October my last radio show and December.I will need to slip some of my experiences into the blog bit by bit.
This year I have a new motto “Less is More”. I am starting my radio show once again on the 22nd of January, but this year have decided to host one show a month. I am deep into training with the Enneagram, it has added such depth to my coaching, using it as a tool for profound transformation.
Last November I co-facilitated our first Enneagram workshop in Trinidad and had a wonderful turnout. We are hosting an Introductory workshop “Stepping out of your Box”quarterly this year. I am excited and enthusiastic as we, SERENDIPTY WORKS, steps into the New Year creating a series of workshops on the Enneagram.
The Enneagram is a wonderful tool for self discovery and gaining insights into all your relationships.
My first radio show for the season on the 22nd of January will be Power of Healthy Relationships - Soul Mate or Cell Mate with my special guest Jackie Woods.
Jackie Woods is an expert in the field of self-actualization with more than 25 years teaching experience. She brings healing through accelerated personal growth. Unlike traditional self-help publications and classes that often focus on “fixing” symptoms and “coping” with dysfunction, Jackie’s teachings focus on eliminating the causes of problems and Empowering Your Heart for Extraordinary Living.
We will discuss her latest book Soul Mate or Cell Mate: A Guide to Healthy Relationships.
Are Soul Mate relationships found or developed?

A time comes in your life when you finally get it.
When in the midst of all your fears and insanity you stop dead in your tracks and somewhere the voice inside your head cries out ENOUGH.
This is your awakening.
You realize that it’s time to stop hoping and waiting for something to change or for happiness, safety and security to come galloping over the next horizon.
You awaken to the fact that you are not perfect and that not everyone will always love, appreciate, or approve of who or what you are – and that’s OK. (They are entitled to their own views and opinions.)
And you learn the importance of loving and championing yourself and in the process a sense of new-found confidence is born of self-approval.
You learn to stand on your own and to take care of yourself and in the process a sense of safety & security is born of self-reliance.
You stop judging and pointing fingers and you begin to accept people as they are and to overlook their shortcomings and human frailties and in the process a sense of peace and contentment are born of forgiveness.
You learn to open up to new worlds and different points of view. And you begin reassessing and redefining who you are what you really stand for.
You learn the difference between wanting and needing and you begin to discard the doctrines and values you’ve outgrown, or should never have bought into to begin with and in the process you learn to go with your instincts.
You learn that it is truly in giving that we receive.
You learn that you don’t know everything.
Then you learn about love - romantic love and familiar love, how to love, how much to give in love, when to stop giving and when to walk away.
You learn not to project your needs or your feelings onto a relationship.
You learn that you will not be, more handsome, more intelligent, more loveable or important because of the person on your arm or the child that bears your name. You learn to look at relationships as they really are and not as you would have them be. You stop trying to control people, situations, and outcomes. You learn that just as people grow and change so it is with love. And you learn that you don’t have the right to demand love on your terms, just to make you happy.
And, you learn that alone does not mean lonely.
Slowly, you begin to take responsibility for yourself by yourself and you make yourself a promise to never betray yourself and to never ever to settle for less than your hearts desire. You hang a wind chime outside your window so you can listen to the wind. And you make it a point to keep smiling, to trust, and to stay open to every wonderful possibility.
Finally, with courage in your heart you take a stand, you take a deep breath and you begin to design the life you want to live as best as you can.
