Planting Seeds for a New Way of Being
“When you are working on yourself and you’re loving yourself, people resonate with that and pick up on it – they want some.” Elvira Luqman, Original Skin Care in Clovis, CA
A movement is happening and is being led by Bringers of the Heart, people who are planting seeds for more love and acceptance. Clients and beauty professionals alike are seeking more meaning and purpose in life. This presents an opportunity for estheticians who are feeling called to offer healing modalities in their practice. Beauty professionals are helping to create this new heart-based reality through their business.
Read stories of Transformative Esthetic students who bring more love and acceptance into the world through their lives and businesses. Linda’s student Elvira Luqman shares her Bringer of the Heart experience:
“A year ago I had hit rock bottom in my life. I had just gone through a terrible relapse with alcohol. My marriage was in shambles. My business was suffering. I was a mess and I had no idea how to get myself out of such a dark place.
I decided to try a Reiki treatment. It was an amazing and intense experience. Afterwards, I felt ten pounds lighter, as though a weight was lifted off my chest. I realized that I wasn't broken, just bruised. I wasn't a bad person, just making poor choices. I was sabotaging my life because I didn't think I was good enough. I wanted more of this feeling, so I sign-up for the [Transformative Esthetics with] Reiki 1 training.
Since this training my life has changed dramatically. I have over a year of sobriety. And I feel that I finally have the tools and the power to change my life and help people change their lives as well. I started rebranding my business, changing my service menu, making over my website, shifting towards holistic treatments and services. As I was making these changes with my business, I began to feel confident that I was doing the right thing. I also noticed, the more I stayed out of my head and into being of service, the more doors and opportunities opened for me.
My definition of success has definitely changed. I used to measure success only monetarily. I used to think that I wanted the sale, no matter what. So, I would undervalue my work. I felt I had to give a discount to get the person to come back. I never felt comfortable charging my price…because I didn’t value my worth. I now know that not all money is good money. If I lose a client, then that client is obviously not right for me.
Now I define success as having good and healthy relationships. The first relationship that changed was the relationship with myself. Next, was my relationship with my husband and son. I found that when you are not right with yourself it is hard to be right for yourself in other relationships.
In one year, my life and business have done a complete turn-around. I have rebuilt my personal and business relationships, I have more referrals, I have new clients and I could not be happier. With my clients, it is love all day long! They come in we hug; they have no problem paying full price. I have clients tell me ‘Wow! There’s something about you. You are glowing!’
There's nothing more gratifying, than to know that I've been given this beautiful gift and that I can share it and watch the magic happen with my clients. If your heart is calling out for change, it's time for a change. Linda Bertaut’s Reiki training is a great way to tap into your intuition, there is always room for growth!”
Melt away stress and worries in one of Elvira’s Reiki healing treatments at her spa located in the central California valley town of Clovis. I recommend you try her seasonal Strawberry Lemonade Facial. You will walk out glowing both inside and out!
