My origin story … the point of no return

Lisa Higgins Medical Intuitive

As part of my continued Medical Intuitive training my good friend Emma Turton suggested we write our “origin story”.

I’d never thought about it like that before and didn’t think I had one, but of course I do … the point of no return, where my life was set on my current trajectory to becoming a Medical Intuitive and offering a more integrated way of working with clients.

I’ve always been considered alternative though I’ve never seen it, it was all just normal to me.

I have meditated on an off since I was 19, did Reiki in my early 20s, attended meditation and healing groups, took short courses in things like reflexology and making my own skin care products, listened to talks on the current energetic pulse of the world … hasn’t everybody?  

So when it came to thinking of my origin story I was a bit flummoxed, because I’ve always been this way.

My origin story

But there was a point of no return, or a period of three months really.

Here’s the timeline:

  • 2nd June 2014 – started new business
  • 14th June 2014 – divorce finalised
  • 11th July 2014 – Soul Goal weekend 
  • 7th August 2014 – saw an integrative GP
  • 1st September 2014 – moved house

If you look at it, any one of those events could have been life changing.  I did them all in three months!  I don’t recommend this to anyone mind you, but I’m an all or nothing kinda gal.

New Business- work change

On 2nd June 2014, I set up my own business, working out of a clinic set up by my best friend Angela.  I had left my job of 4.5 years – two days reception in an osteopathic clinic where I also did three days massage.

Divorce – relationship change

After 2.5 years of official separation (and over 20 years of marriage), my divorce came through on 14th June.  A sad day but a release and a moving forward.

Soul Goal, Joe Dispense workshop – spiritual change

This next one was the clincher.  I had been going to some spiritual workshops and came across the Soul Goal workshop – a full weekend learning about the work of Dr Joe Dispenza.  I was interested but felt money was a bit tight – I came out of my marriage without a financial settlement so was starting over from scratch.  But this was the perfect time to learn how to create my life the way I wanted it to be.

I looked back in my diary just now to get accurate dates for this timeline and I couldn’t believe what I had written for this weekend … Lisa healing her soul.  Wow. Did I ever!

I learnt about Joe Dispenza, but also about Bruce Lipton, Abraham Hicks, Ho’oponopono, the Heart Math Foundation and had an amazing sound healing.  

It broke me wide open.  This is when I learned how to create my own life.

The group continued to meditate together weekly, along with other participants from previous and future workshops – every Wednesday night till our teacher, Justine, moved to the US to marry her beloved Don. We continued to meditate together via Skype but at 5.15am instead of 7pm!  We did this until Justine was fully set up and busy teaching in the US and it got harder for her to fit us in.

And for the first time I meditated daily, consistently.

But in July 2017 our beautiful Justine was shot by a policeman after reporting an attack in the alleyway next to her house.  She was taken away from us all and I still feel her loss deeply.  

She changed my life with her kindness and joy and I was blessed to have known her.

Integrative GP – health change

On 7th August I had my first consultation with an integrative GP.  I wanted to know how my body was travelling as I headed into the perimenopause years.  My family’s medical history is not ideal and after learning about Bruce Lipton and epigenetics I wanted to do all I could to make sure I didn’t express the genes for the various cancers and depression/anxiety which were rampant in my immediate and extended family.

And boy did that turn my life upside down.  For a long time.

A change of how I ate … no gluten, dairy, sugar (including fruit) or caffeine – I always thought I ate healthily but clearly there were things I was eating which didn’t agree with me because I lost about 7kg all up.  Too much weight actually and I got told off because I didn’t eat red meat and I needed more food.  But my body rejected that too.

Plus all the supplements! Oh my!  And the compounded hormones.

It was a very expensive and all-consuming time and I am glad to have moved on from that stage.  I’m also very glad that I was meditating and consciously creating my life because it would have been much harder otherwise.

Moved house – home change

On 1st September 2014, just to cap things off, I moved house.  That’s a whole story in itself, maybe I’ll tell it another time.
