I have a Master’s degree in Counseling but never really enjoyed it. I got into the field of holistic health as a kind of fluke. After I got out of Grad School, I went to interview in a psychologist’s office. It turned out he was one of the foremost doctors in the country in natural health. He said he had been waiting for an assistant and I was it. As his assistant, I worked alongside him. He was a homeopath and an acupuncture physcian. He was an amazing out of the box person and was very generous with his teaching.
My next job was counseling but it left me a little cold. It seemed impotent. It seemed canned. It seemed like one went through the motions from a programed guide. Everyone played his part——the client and the counselor. I played my part but my heart was not in it and I felt like a fraud. I feel like the field is a fraud. I know this is a strong statement. I don’t think it can really help in deep ways. It can be palliative but that is all. I say all this to bring me to the topic of this article.
My practice seems to have to worked into one of my greatest passions—doing counseling using the charts. Also, I try to use radical honesty. I don’t think much honesty exists in these politically correct times. Truth heals. It may hurt but ongoing lies hurt more. In my practice, I can be honest. I can spend as much time as the person needs. I don’t believe in the 50 minute hour. I believe in staying with the person until he has a breakthrough or a release of some sort. I want to make a difference. One cannot buy that. A person has to love what she does and be called to it.
I do handwriting analysis. This can tell me more than the charts. It tells me more about the present state of the person. The chart shows the life blueprint of the person. There is a difference. Both matter. It is the best of all worlds to have both. If I could have one only, I would take the chart because it shows the person’s purpose. One will never be happy if one is not following one’ s purpose. The chart shows our struggles. It shows our unique pain. It, also, shows our unique gifts. It really shows everything and that is why I love it.
PS The picture has nothing to do with the article but I thought it was so cool and just found it, so I thought I would use it 😀
