I had a lovely time in New Caledonia and ate the most amazing food! When I returned to the hippie hovel to stay one more night, before heading back to the States, I was nervous about my session with the intuitive healer. I had a feeling it was going to cause me to make some kind of massive change, and I was right.
The session didn't go as either of us expected. He seemed a little confused by the information he was getting about me. It seemingly had nothing to do with a healing, rather it told of my life's next step.
He didn't know this, but at the time, I had been looking into massage programs. The idea of going into massage didn't really light me up, but I felt like it was the general direction I needed to head in.
What came out of the session, however, was that I actually needed to learn Rolfing. Neither of us had any idea what this was, but he said I needed to go down the path of learning Rolfing and the remainder of the path would be revealed from there.
About an hour later the shuttle came to pick me up for the airport. At the airport, with the limited wifi I had available, I researched about Rolfing (or what I've come to call integrative manual therapy) and my soul came alive.
I signed up for three session when I returned home and I LOVED it. I knew this was the thing I had been looking for. I then applied to school and was accepted, and five months after my New Zealand/Caledonia trip I was off on my next adventure.
I sold/got rid of about 98% of my stuff, rented out my condo and drove out to Boulder, Colorado in my tiny Honda Civic, stuffed with all my belongings and my two doggies—because that's where I was to start my next learning journey.
