I welcome you to Spiritual Growth Tools! I imagine that you are already on a quest for inner peace and joy if you have found this site? I hope that it provides you with some resources towards that goal. It is an indication of the path that I have taken on my own journey to health and happiness.
I am an avid reader and researcher and on my international travels, I came across many weird and wonderful ways to make the human experience more enjoyable. Some of them seemed a little comical at the time, and some of them downright strange, but some of them had a profound effect on my health and well-being, and they inspired me to want to make Spiritual Growth Tools, so that I could share what I had learned.
I am passionate about healing, recovery and assisting others to grow. I qualified as a BodyTalk practitioner in 2005 and an Angel Therapy Practitioner in 2009. I have worked in a treatment centre for addictions and co-dependency, and am currently studying to become a counsellor.
My interest in the plight of the human began around 11 years old when I was obsessed with reading books about reincarnation. I discovered that those of us in the west do not believe in life after death for the most part, but those in the east accept the afterlife readily.
This confused me. How could half a planet be wrong? It set me on the path of discovering what it was that I believed. It has been a challenging path, and one that is far from over. I have come to see that as long as I seek answers "out there" there will never be a solution. My journey has turned inwards and I am gradually finding myself.
I was in International Sales for 15 years, but felt that for me there had to be more to life, and my health was suffering with all the international travel, and stress etc. So I left and tried a few different things including a turtle conservation camp in Mexico, training to be a BodyTalk Practitioner, and getting into recovery from various addictions. I then went to work in a treatment centre for codependency and addictions in America, and whilst I was there, I went to Hawaii to train with Doreen Virtue as an Angel Therapy Practitioner.
Spiritual Growth Tools is the culmination of many years of seeking and trying new things for myself and studying life. I am delighted to share what I have found along my way. I hope that Spiritual Growth Tools provides you with some tools that will enable you to find yourself and thus share your gifts with the world, and start to enjoy your life!
Another subject that I am passionate about is wildlife and I have been extremely fortunate in my time to see a huge variety of wildlife in situ, around the world. My favourite memories always centre around swimming with 1,500 dolphins in the Maldives, watching polar bears in the Arctic, seeing gorillas in Uganda, and playing with baby gray whales in Baja, California. There are many other wonderful species that I have been fortunate to see in their environs and many more that I would like to see- most notably this year, the Tiger. I have also raised money for a variety of charities for many years.
I dedicate Spiritual Growth Tools to my dear Godfather who was really unique and special to a huge number of people, especially me. He showed me how to be myself, and he really did live life to the full, and I thank him for showing me that vision and for loving me as one of his own.
