Perfection: Like Waiting for Godot

Waiting for the right moment has cost me a lot…in earnings, in clients, in opportunities. I waited until I was certain that everything was perfect, absolutely perfect. I had to have enough credentials to speak as a credible expert about the energy work I’d been doing so very well for so many years. I had to have the right environment in which to work. I needed more training, because I didn’t know enough. Does this all sound familiar to you?

While I was getting better, perfecting my skills and art, others were just doing it and getting better at it and drawing to them the people, the publicity and the income. When I realized this several years ago, at first I was jealous, but on further consideration, I recognized that there just weren’t enough healers, and holistic practitioners to serve the enormous population in which we live. I recognized that the Universe is abundant and that there is more than enough to go around, that the Universe is just waiting to hear what it is we want, in order to provide it to us. What more could one want?

I began to network my clients to others, whom I knew offered services I didn’t provide, because I knew this is truly what serving the client is all about. I put myself within the circle of sharing, starting with an image of the golden ring, in which “what goes around, comes around”. I held trust in my heart and although it took some time, eventually some of those practitioners began to send me their clients for what I do best. Happily, my practice of giving and receiving began to expand.

Isn’t this what it’s all about in our abundant Universe? We cannot be all things to everyone and we are perfect as we are in every moment. I’m so grateful to be a lifelong learner, that will continue to renew myself in all ways, that I am constantly reminded of the multitudes of things for which I am so grateful.
