A Note To Wannabe Sexologists

A Note To Wannabe Sexologists
If you asked me if being a sexologist is hard, this is what I would say....
  1. To discover our true Self. To find out on our own that our true Self is spiritual, that essentially we are spiritual beings that have taken manifestation in physical form.
  2. To express our unique talents. This means that there’s one thing you can do, and one way of doing it, that is better than anyone else on this entire planet.
  3. To provide service to humanity – to serve your fellow human beings and to ask yourself the questions, “How can I help? How can I help all those that I come into contact with?”

The Law of Dharma happens when you combine the ability to express your unique talent with service to humanity.

People choose to see what they want to see: the media publicity must mean I am famous, that I am doing well, and that I am rich. Right… Being a sexologist allows me to be communicator, advocate, coach, teacher and healer all in one. It is a sum of everything I have studied in school, learned in life, and experienced as a human, woman, daughter and wife. My work is pure heart work, and is also hard work(!). It is the product of my desire to leave a legacy of people who are fearlessly living and embracing life fully behind.

Therefore, I am hard pressed to encourage or persuade anyone to be a sexologist. I am me, and you are you. Our journeys might well be different or similar. Either way, it is all good. It is more important that you find what makes your soul sing everyday, as being a sexologist does for me.

I leave you with this quote by Henry David Thoreau:

“The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.”
