today I had for the second time the chance to participate with my story of “A Selection of True Awakening Experiences” in an e-book by the webpage me my magnificent self, and I did not wanted to miss sharing the article as well with you!
Allow me first to introduce myself to those of you who have not read any of my articles in one of the wonderful FREE E-BOOK’S Barbara Franken has inspired over the past years. My name is Edith Boyer-Telmer, I am the founder of New Beginnings Guatemala at Lake Atitlan, a certified Kinesiology – Touch for Health therapist, breath work teacher, shamanic practitioner and intuitive channel, with a passion for artistic expression.
In 2016 I received for the first time an invitation to contribute my story to the FREE E-BOOK “A Selection of True Awakening Experiences Part II“, and since than have also shared the articles “My Authentically Reflection Of What Compassion Means To Me” and “Graving Holistic Nutrition While Artificial Intelligence Enters The Food Industry” in further publications. Today its again time to look back on my personal awakening path of the past 2 years, and to let you know where I find myself in life these days.
I think I gonna start with mentioning that I turned fifty this year. Now in many minds, trained in thinking pattern of the western society, this is a number that for women is attached to a whole collection of stigmas and concepts full of limitations. Luckily I fell deeply in love with my physical body some years ago and it is responding to this treatment with harvesting a strong health and well functioning immune system from that mindset, so I can enjoy a very active lifestyle. But even more important, I have so many new plans and strong new directions to go in my life, there is much more to do for me before I can call myself old :-). So allow me to say it with the words of James Broughton: “I’m happy to report that my inner child is still ageless.”
The last time I shared with you that in the year 2005, when I was asking for my calling in life, I received the answer that it could not ever be found in Austria (my original birth country) but in Guatemala, and that I courageously left home within ten month after hearing the information, in order to give myself a new chance.
After spending time with studies of the local community, and the development of a deeper understanding how to apply my abilities in this world, I went on to build a house. Rental properties were very rare around here at that time and I needed a safe space to get strong roots in the ground. After starting my healing work with clients and establishing a new circle of friends, I thought that was the end of moving from space to space and establishing new grounds for myself, but as so often – life had a different plan.
Instead of finding a forever home, I looked up after twelve years of life in my little town, and realized that it is no longer the right place to give me a healthy ground for my holistic lifestyle. It was a long and in times very painful process to let go of the amazing beauty I had created all around me over the years, the stability I had achieved and wonderful friends that lived close by, but how ever uncomfortable it was, in order to be true to myself I had to move. My beautiful house at Lake Atitlan is now for sale – in case you are looking for a new home or holiday domicile in Guatemala, send me a message please :-)!
In the meantime it has payed off very well for me that I stood up for myself and stuck to the clarity that another physical location is more fitting for my life right now. I feel very well in my new home and this rental space does not only give my four dogs the freedom to play every day in a big coffee field, but also me the chance to set up a beautiful work space again – perfectly suiting for what I am sharing with my clients.
In the summer of 2017 I mad another visite to Austria, in order to spend some personal quality time with close friends and family members. That trip also included a very complicated situation with my mother, who throughout my life always was the more conflicting parent for me. The details of this story I shared in the article “My Authentically Reflection Of What Compassion Means To Me“, please read it to understand more of the following.
After coming back to Guatemala that year I very closely monitored my emotions about the trip, and based on that decided that I probably will not go back for another decade. The main reason was that I had the feeling there was not much more that can be done to have a better relationship with my mother, and that it was time for me to let go of that ideal. Funny enough, within only on year that feeling has so profoundly changed that I now plan to go and see her again as soon as I can manage to make a quick trip. Inner shifts and transformations in my mindset, that my experiences of the past 14 month have allowed me, are reason enough to go to Vienna without any expectation or need for a particular outcome. Also lets be honest and not forget what amazing cakes there are waiting for me in the K&K bakeries of my original home town :-).
I will for sure let you know over time, what type of brand new experience this emotionally entirely changed woman that I am today will be able to create! Allow me to close the circle for today with this wonderful quote:
“There is no statute of limitations on starting over. Re-invent yourself every day. Be the girl who walks barefoot and listens to the blues. Tomorrow, wear a trench coat and speak fierce truths. Be a phoenix. Be ashes. Burn down. Resurrect. Let go of the idea that you must always be who you have always been.”
Dear ones, I hope you have enjoyed my little reflection of the period between my last contribution and my status quo of these days. Much has happened, much has changed and I am so incredibly grateful for this beautiful opportunity to reflect on the most important impacts, to bring my details together in a bigger picture and share them all with you! I wish you all much faith and a strong inner light for your personal journey of creating your own collection of awakening experiences :-)!
Love and Blessings
