Being a Love Fairy with Cate Makenzie November 13 2011, 0 Comments
To those of you who don’t know Cate - she’s an international Workshop Leader + Life Coach, inspiring countless individuals to live their dreams and open their hearts.
She does this by gently guiding you to work out what it is you really want, in any area of your life you wish to improve. She then assists you to overcome the fears and blocks around obtaining these wishes, to really move forward into creating them (apparently the answers are all within us!)
When I first had a session with Cate 3 years ago, I wanted to start my Facial business, but had only got as far as hand writing my Treatment Menu on a piece of paper. Throughout the session we discussed my ambitions, along with the things that were holding me back. Cate gave me some excellent business tips and recommendations and asked me to create my own personal mission statement for my future business.
But it was what she said when looking at my hand-written Menu that really hit a chord “Charlotte this little bit of paper has such positive energy, I think that your going to be great at this” It was such a simple thing to say and I know it might sound silly, but having Cate have faith in me - helped me have faith in me!
Having been to many workshops and private sessions with her, I absolutely see the value in Life Coaching, as it’s having someone with no hidden agenda - support and assist your growth in a very powerful way.
Being fairly shy, when Cate asked if I’d be a dancing Love Fairy - on stage for her show, I was initially reluctant... what if someone I knew saw me?? It was also going LiveStream on the web - eek! But I decided to put my inhibitions to one side, push through my comfort zone and just do it.
It was SO much fun - it took me back to being 7 years old again, dancing around with fairy wings and glitter, like being at kid’s disco. To my amazement the audience joined in and were genuinely loving the loss of their inhibitions as well.
Being Allowed to be a child again felt really indulgent and refreshingly liberating. It reminded me that it’s important to stay connected to your ‘inner child’ and express a little fun-creativity every now and then.
And if, when I was 7, I’d been told I was going to be a Love Fairy when I was 28... I’d have been very very happy!
