I certified with the Awakened Academy in August of 2018 and it seems like lifetimes ago now. I had worked in the service industry all my life and wanted a complete change. Deep down in my Soul I knew that this was the right thing to do and Coaching seemed to be my calling.
I set up Freedom Design shortly afterwards and expected the clients to come flooding in almost immediately. Well that didn't happen and I was deeply disappointed but I didn't give up. I searched for reasons why things were not happening the way I though they would and all sorts of thoughts started emerging.
I went on many of my beach walks to help me find the answers I was looking for and it wasn't until I went with a walk with my partner, I began too understand what was meant by finding my Niche as a Coach.
You see I was a businessman all my life and managed various Businesses. I loved going into a business a seeing what could be improved so the business owner could be more successful. It was in my blood from very a young age but I was never really successful myself. I knew how to build and manage other business but seemed to fail with my own projects for various reasons. During my Training with the Academy, I managed to find some of those reasons that had prevented me from being successful, moving on and being happier but I never really figured out what my next step was in regards to my new career in coaching.
Don't get me wrong here, my spiritual Coaching training was life changing in so many ways and the best training available hands down in my opinion. It's just I felt that more needed to be done on me personally before I could venture anymore into my Spiritual Coaching Business. I needed to prove to myself that I could run a very successful business before advising anyone else about their spiritual life or business.
I live in Ireland and in Ireland people are extremely suspicious about anything Spiritual. We have a long history of Conflict about Religion here and the word Spiritual means the same to most Irish. I know this because I was one of them and struggled at first with the course but I did like the business end of it and then started to understand what was missing spiritually in my life.
That business part made complete sense to me and the daily rituals that would eventually get me to my goals. I know this to be true with my business background. Tiny little steps each day towards your dreams and being at peace knowing that you are more than what you think you are, was a very powerful mantra for me and something i brought with me from the academy.
I lost myself during the Covid 19 saga but also knew that this was a calling for further introspection. The world was changing and all the old crap was coming to the surface ( Including My own Crap ) and showing itself publicly. Things that seemed important were no longer and anyone slightly awake knew what was happening in the world. For me, we are entering into a much brighter world but before that the Black Goo needed to come out.
Anyway as we were emerging out of this, I continued working on myself and also challenged myself to be a more successful entrepreneur. I kept freedom design of course but just let it sit there as I attempted some other projects.
After a little marketing training, I built the webconsult website, helping businesses online by providing all sorts of Web Services. This business is starting to really take off for me and clients are reporting on my professionalism and also my care for their business. I am launching another website called WebMechanic where I fix all web related issues and will also be providing a white label service to marketing Companies who need this service. These business are not Life Coaching businesses but allow me to express my care and skills in another way and I love having the opportunity to do this.
I approached an old friend last year from back in 2009 who lives in the US. He is a retired Music manager who managed some of the biggest bands in America. At that time I was unable to help him with his online project that needed major investment but I offered to build his website for free and he has now made me the CEO and president of the Holodigm Academy that teaches Independent artists how to manage their own acts. It's not officially launched yet but this will be a worldwide project with many other lecturers providing information about the music industry.
I hope the reader can see where I am going here? My spiritual training helped me believe in myself and I am now heading towards becoming a successful entrepreneur. Im not there yet but I can see where I am going and I am excited Guys.
Now we go back to Freedom Design, the name, the purpose and the intent of my very first website. Why did I choose that name? for what purpose? I wanted to provide clarity and freedom for my clients but i wasn't there yet myself. I needed to provide my own freedom first and go back and show my clients how to do this whether its in their personal lives or their business lives. It doesn't matter as the rules are all the same.
Finally, none of this would be possible but for my Eternal Father / Mother in heaven who provided me with this opportunity to express my love for my fellow Man / Women in my own unique way. He / She is on my mind every day as I go about my business. I make lots of mistakes all the time but I know He / She loves me anyway and just encourages me to move on regardless. I am reminded all the time of unconditional love no matter what and knowing that makes me feel safe and loved. I care about myself more as this is my first responsibility so I can love others more unconditionally no matter the faults as I have many myself and judgement does not exist in the eyes of my Mother / Father, nor should it be in me.
I share this with my Fellow students, peers and guests so you can see that having the Mother / Father with you on your Journey brings you to the places you wish to go. All you need to do is to have a little chat within yourself anywhere and at anytime with your creator who loves you and wants you to be happy. No need for stress. Tiny little steps like the Awakened Academy advises and you will be go to places you could never imagine.
I will go back to my Freedom Design website after I explore my own freedom a little more and when I do, I will know exactly what to do and what clients I can help in the future.
I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to Michael and Arielle who have being my Guides throughout my training. On occasion I do look in on the Awakened Academy family to see how everyone is doing and see all the great work this very special couple are doing. I wish them continued Success and Countless blessings on their Journey and in their personal lives. Two beautiful People.
Thanks for reading.
I love you all unconditionally
