A few years ago, when Sally Hinkle’s 11-year-old schnauzer Dex was struggling just to get up and go outside, his arthritis having become so severe, she decided to take a decidedly nontraditional route. Wary of arthritis medication, given Dex’s liver problems, she settled on acupuncture to renew her pooch’s zest for life.
MY NEW WAY OF WORKING
“Can we slow this down a little?” I asked her. Sally Hinkle just smiled. You see, I went to Sally several months ago for a Work Alignment – one of those energetic things you’re never quite sure about but that sounds interesting so why not.
Sally just smiled. I’d gone from not having any work – at all – and none in sight for as far as I could see, to being overwhelmed with the best projects I’d ever been offered. I mean – the best! All of them out of the blue, none of this six to nine month sales cycle my work usually involves as a training and education designer. Consulting can be a hard row to hoe; feast or famine in the client load, and I frankly have bigger projects I want to do. Consulting has almost become the famed ‘day job.’
What on earth did she DO? I’m still scratching my head, even though I have a pretty good grasp of this field called ‘energy work,’ and really do ‘get it’ about how things need to align (after all, a lot of my work, when I have it, is about aligning stuff!).
Sally Hinkle is a native middle Tennessean who has always been a little – well – different. Immensely creative, she’s traveled the roads of the music industry, the film industry and the world of writing. And she’s dad-gum good in every one.
She’s just the best in this other stuff, too I tell you. And as a test, I’d referred a friend of mine, who is substantially more conservative than I could ever hope to be, and it worked for her as well. She’d been unemployed as a nurse practitioner for a long time, wasn’t even sure she should do that again, and within weeks of spending her time with Sally, got a job as a nurse practitioner, and within months of that, had climbed up the ladder to a position that’s just perfect for her. Another happy family; her husband is in the music industry and, like me; his work can be feast or famine. Maybe I ought to have Sally work on my cat, see if His Nibs the Emperor Feline can be a steady breadwinner? Never mind.
So, what is it that Sally does, and seems to do so well? If you saw the film “What The Bleep,” or if you understand quantum physics, or maybe even that arena some people call ‘woo-woo,’ it might be that Sally’s work in helping people put themselves in alignment with the energy of the work they want to do, and how they want to do it – all through subtle energy – is familiar. If not, let me paint a picture for you.
Unless you are a die hard who enjoys the misery you can create, you could – could – sit down and define the work you believe you are here to do and how it would look, feel, smell, and be if you were doing it the way you wanted to. You could write out a story about your new way of working. It’s like the order you write up to give to the universe. You might even have a standing order that the universe seems to ignore.
Why? Why aren’t you doing what you believe is your perfect pattern? It’s all about the alignment of myriad energetic forces. Some of them are out of alignment because of family patterns you inherit, or ways of managing your own energy. Some are out of alignment simply because creating and influencing alignment is not the job you are here to do. It’s Sally’s job.
My time with Sally was sweet, simple and profound. Turned out that from my small desk where I pound out materials, my heart was projected into an oak tree clear across the street; that there were some loops of energy that were disconnected. Shoot, I don’t remember what all was out of alignment.
What I do know is that within weeks of getting it in alignment, my new way of working began to come into physical reality in ways I’d never dreamed of. You ought to try it. You’ve spent a lot more getting a lot less for your investment. Believe me.
