A New Chapter In The Book Of Life: THE VOICE September 4, 2002

Ramming the ghetto blaster under my arm, and slapping the carved elephant onto Larry’s lap, we scooted out the door. Handi-bus was here.

I was nervous I admit:it’s a new chapter in my life and I’m not even sure what book I’m reading!!

Joan told me months ago that she was trying to sell her clinic. She had invested in some wonderful new thingamahoosit and made enough changes to her life to move to some exotic country to travel and enjoy life. I politely tried not to be jealous and smiled at her good fortune. Life then shot me a few unusual curves.

First, Joan asked me, “Wanna buy a clinic?” We laughed about what I could offer her for it and more or less decided that what was in my pocket would not be a good idea for a therapy center.

Second, I told her I had finally registered for my second Craniosacral Therapy course and she delightedly suggested that I come in and try working with a few clients with her. The idea was bounced around that I consider taking over her clientele. I had no problems with the idea so I agreed on the spot.

Third, she found Mr. Wonderful: although I have yet to meet him:the potential new boss. He is a matter-of-fact businessman yet a gentle soul who believes in fate and the Universe dropping in “signs” to signal which direction to go.

I couldn’t be happier. Or could I?

I have been awaiting this move for months and it seems to have taken forever. I have been given Joan’s office space, massage table, bookcase, and clientele. Things like this don’t usually happen! Gratitude is included with this – I know this is huge and amazing. But I of course am trekking into the unknown. Where will this lead?

Anytime we head into new frontiers and uncertain waters we find ourselves wondering what is ahead. I am in those unknown waters and need to find out what I have around me.

For those of you joining me in some uncertain new adventure in your lives here is my prayer to get me through :”HEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLPPPPPPPPPP!”

Ahem! I find it helps! Even if it is a bit unconventional.

In the future if you have any questions about Craniosacral Therapy, you can always drop me a line at

And for those of you just starting out in some new adventure: me too. Good luck and hold onto the ropes you get thrown by me. I’ll be looking for yours.
