Vicki came to me after trying everything – self-help, acupuncture, medication, meditation, the works. She has trouble focusing.
That same night, after our first consultation, she puts her plan into action. She writes her letter of resignation.
When I see her 4 weeks later, her homeopathic remedy has kicked in. She is filing for unemployment, re-organizing her closets, revamping her digital life. Her diet is “finally sticking.” She is dusting off an old book project.
But she feels like she doesn’t know where her time goes. She feels “distracted.”
I come across an email from my blogging class about time quilting – take stock of your time, define these blocks, specify your tasks and decide in advance how you will use your blocks of time.
I LOVE serendipity. I want to go the extra mile for Vicki. I hit “forward”.
The next morning, Vicki writes back. “Jiuan, too methodical for me. I need a more organic approach. I’m just not linear and never will be.”
She brings me right back to Homeopathy 101. I look at my tag line, Unique Solutions for Unique Individuals and kick myself.
I had given her a plant remedy. It worked from within. And I then I propose a structured solution. I loved the solution because I need a mineral remedy. Minerals are all about structure. Vicki understood herself – plants are “organic,” not “linear.”
That day, Vicki taught me the basic lessons of my craft.
1. If the remedy does not match the core of the client, it will not work.
2. Focus on the client and keep yourself out of it.
