Hello Beautiful Beings, you found me! My name is Melanie Hughes and I am so pleased you are here.
I am one that really prefers to avoid using labels though these days we are living within a society that relies heavily on these titles, credentials or labels.
I AM Melanie ……a Psychosomatic Therapist, Emotional Release Trigger Point Therapist, Ka Huna Bodywork therapist, Reiki Master Practitioner, Creatologist, a professional Face and Body Artist, Space Holder, Spiritual/Intuitive Artist, Mixed Media Artist, Angel Intuitive Therapist, Child Care Educator, Administration Manager and Owner/Sole Operator and Manager of two businesses, wife and mother of four children and am currently in the process of gaining more and more in my skills as I take action in life. These modalities and skills are some that I am very passionate about, with a willingness to expand and evolve. As these all connect with each other for that which I am the conduit. Though they do not define me for I am so much more than these labels because as a person I wear many hats. Some days I am even a fairy and wannabe Unicorn!
I love love love and I am ever so grateful to be where I am in this present moment. So far I would say I have lived a very colour full existence in this form as a human being, sometimes that colour was very dark. From those depths in hue, can come the greatest Light! Career wise, I began with running an office as the Administration Manager of a white goods and home appliance warehouse. A role I thoroughly enjoyed (as I was able to realise one of my biggest passions and that is relating and communicating with people) and worked in for quite a number of years, until I became pregnant with my first born who is now 16 years of age. I then went into Early Learning Childhood Education in Long Day Care Centre/s. As my family expanded I established my own business as a Family Day Care Educator. I worked as an Educator up until I gave birth to my forth child Miss K who has just begun her journey in school. My career path then took a turn as I found myself at a crossroads on my path. Having been blessed with four happy healthy children to care for, there I found myself really wanting to pursue my inner calling as an artist/creative being also having a huge pull to know myself, the Truth of my Source. My intuition was on fire. Pursuing the creative aspect of myself felt so good. It was a feeling of being ‘At Home’. One of pure joy and peace, this is where I find myself in ‘My Zen’. It ticked all of the boxes as I was able to manage to juggle my very busy life. Of course there were times of great challenge and growth. That goes without saying.
In pursuit of my love and passion for art and in living my life purposefully I created a successful business where I am able to paint to my hearts content on a 3D canvas. The body and connecting with people. You can see more of what I have created by following the link to my other website embellishfaceandbodyart.com.au
My passion to work with people and the body expanded into my desire to understand who I am, on a deeper level. Mind, Body and metaphysically. I immersed myself in studying once again, and through some very confronting, and enlightening moments I followed my heart, to discover my passion expands yet again, onto the path of being a qualified and registered Psychosomatic Therapist. This all came about after some very intense and provoking challenges, where I had to take action and make some difficult life changing choices and go through some profound healing processes. In acknowledging who I was in that present time, my understanding and realisation as to how I could move in a positive way, allowed me to see and experience the freedom that comes with understanding the true power of my full potential.
It is innately within every human being to strive to reach and obtain a state of consciousness that is Love, Joy and Harmony.
As you can see, I AM a very passionate woman with a thirst to grow deeper and deeper into my ever expanding consciousness and awareness, with an innate desire to help others to realise their potential which is as much the purpose of me Being born. To Be of Service to others.
I AM very enthusiastic in my desire to fulfil my aspirations to help you to move in a positive direction to get the most out of your existence in this human form. Body, mind and Soul. One where you may find peace with your past, live and create in the present with an abundance NOW and an expanse of abundance for your future. My experience and passion for life in relating and communicating will leave you feeling at ease as I endeavour to create a dynamic of compassion, trust and understanding as a therapist. With an open heart, I too am continually holding space for myself with a willingness to learn, because as a Human we are on a path of evolution. I also believe we are all each others teachers. Which in turn, takes my role to heights where you will connect deeply with me on a Soul level, as we are divinely guided to share space.
I will always endeavour to create a space where I can quickly understand where you have come from, where you are now and where you want to move to. The experience I have had to date in relating with people as a service provider and healer has provided me with the skills necessary to master techniques and provide individual assistance to each and every client.
Id like to share that I once upon a time would simply think of a way to discover my life purpose, rather than living my life on purpose and with intent. Have you ever heard the saying, “Just Do It”? Well I came to a very life halting moment and a realisation that the more I took action, the clearer things became. So instead of overthinking and being all up in my head, with all the questions like……..
Will this work out?
Should I try that?
What if I don’t like it?
What if I don’t make money at it?
I embraced the fear. I made a choice to start taking steps toward living life passionately doing the things I most enjoyed that even the things that were not so enjoyable in the past actually began to bring me joy. My biggest drive and happy place of bliss is when I am creating. It can be creating anything that I do and complete with love, a master piece that I know will bring others joy. This state of being I discovered is to give and be of service. That there is the jewel. To behold the sparkly jewel within you so as to be of service and to give with love without any expectation.
The ultimate happy place for me is the connection of mind and body in bringing my passion for art alive and the realisation that it made me feel so much love and joy, that it Lights up my heart. The heart is the Light within our body, the Soul, and I knew to be Truth when I was creating in this way that I was nurturing my spirit. A realisation that Mind, Body and Soul are not separate. Being of service allows me to feel and express so much love, which in turn creates a feeling of being so alive in doing this work that it doesn’t even feel like work because there is so much flow and syncronicity.
Best of all, I know and feel the truth that in serving others is also bringing in positive energy for me. In giving, that feeling of love that floods into my heart confirms an undeniable truth that on purpose, this is what I am to do with my life. Know that this has only come about with consistent intent, focus, and action.
The experience is the reward; clarity comes through the process of exploring. Action is where you get results.
How do I find that thing that I am passionate about I hear you ask…..
This is where you need to spend time with yourself and be still so that you can listen. Meditation and mindfulness is a wonderful way to access this inner wisdom. This may need to become a practice so you can find the stillness to strengthen the gateway to your heart. This is your best tool to access your true purpose and passion.
Ask yourself what you love? Take mental note or create a list.
Here is the fun part…..begin taking steps to do what you love. When you are inspired and connected to your happy self, inspiration floods your heart and soul. When you lead from your heart, you are naturally more joyful and motivated to explore. By doing what you love, you will be inspired and gain insights into what brings you the most joy.
It may be many things so ensure you are open to your unlimited potential. We can be great at many things and love them all equally.
This is where the 7 Principles of Huna come in…..see info on the Ka Huna Bodywork page.
As I have shared with you here in the beginning, the many labels/skills acquired, there is still so much more to me. I am a business manager, secretary, accountant, taxi driver, life coach, mentor, confidant, fashion coordinator, teacher, lunch maker, CEO of the household, cleaner, chef, counselor, mediator, and the list goes on, but you get the gist. I have many labels/titles and each one I am practicing I do with love and it brings me joy but none of these are my purpose, they are my passions. So start getting in touch with your passions! When you lead a passionate life you are living your life on purpose.
Let go of thinking there is only one purpose for you and embrace the idea that our purpose in life is to love life fully by putting ourselves into our life! This means we jump in and try new things; we stop resisting the unknown and we fully engage in what is happening right here, where we are. To lead a purposeful life, follow your passions. Release your FEARs. F=alse E=vidence A=ppearing R=eal. When we live a passion-filled life we are living on purpose, and that is the purpose of life. Living life in your Power. Power = Rewop. R=emember E=verything W=orks O=ut P=erfectly.
That feeling that something is missing goes away when you lead a passion-filled life. The need to seek our purpose comes from a lack of passion. When you don’t feel connected to your life, and you are energetically out of alignment in body, mind and soul, you lack purpose and passion. To rekindle this purpose is a easy as inviting and creating new ways to empower you in your life by feeling this natural drive of your passion.
Upon reflection you will see that the real purpose of anyone’s life is to be fully involved in living. Do your best at being present for the journey and fully embrace each experience. This is the reward remember. As soon as you take on leading a life with purpose, in no time you will be oozing with passion, and you will feel so purposeful and fulfilled you will wonder how you lived life without it.
Enjoy the journey into your own awesome life and if you still feel like you would like to know more about how to create this for yourself, step into sharing space with me, for I will welcome you with an open heart.
