I really needed this. I had the biggest smile when I saw this pop up in the latest videos!
I wanted to get out of being a Customer Service Rep on the Catastrophe team because it was miserable. I had a lot of experience as a IT Tech so I pursued that. Now i support 2 sites for a company out of Boston and do webdesign on the side (very part time) also school part time.
Managing time while working full time and having a life is tough but I’m literally living the dream and doing what I love. Managing time comes easier with umm time LOL 🙂
Let me know if you ever have any job openings. I thinking working with Jamie would be a dream job for me. 🙂
OMG this is my favorite. Especially the end. More of this please 🙂
I can relate to this episode so much. I had to make the decision to leave a career that I had built over a 12 year period- where I had achieved everything I wanted and the lifestyle I wanted. Until I realized it had changed me so much I was no longer my true self. I am now back at 1. Someone commented to me how careless I had suddenly become, and I have never felt more free. I hope that this episode can help a lot of people. And if anyone needs help, come talk to me. I’ve been on the ledge and took the leap!
High Five LSN!!
I loved this episode (especially the part after the credits). So many interesting points of discussion. Thanks for continuing to be so candid and sharing about your own experiences. Maybe in a future episode Jamie could share about her own past experiences as an employee and how she dealt with different types of work environments.
I agree with where Colleen was coming from about younger people checking out, and although this has happened before from TV to Radio to books etc, the portability, and accessibility of it coupled with the nature of the electronic signals it emits creates new challenges than we’ve faced previously. The electronic It’s a shame that people are so connected and yet so disconnected at the same time, but people tend to go the path of least resistance. I can’t really relate to it because my phone is literally just there in case I need to make a call if I’m out. It also makes me wonder if the human being in general is going to start to adapt to electronic frequency exposure in some way to protect itself from a biological standpoint. It seems like from a spiritual standpoint this has been discussed before, but it’ll be interesting to see what the actual human body might do to adapt.
I do spend most of my day on the computer as well and feel like I have a high resistance to the energy drain Colleen is referring to, which is nice but also challenging because then there is a temptation to just be at it more, and the exposure does add up eventually. I like Jesse’s idea of having a check in after a certain period of time. I try to get up and go for a short walk or do some basic exercises every certain period of time and it helps my back and neck more than anything because my computer posture is not the greatest.
As for work, I agree that it’s important that if you don’t like where you are, to take steps to generate energy/momentum towards something else. I’ve found that as long as you put energy of change out and try to define the change you want, it ends up creating opportunities. These opportunities may not appear in the ways or areas you expect them to, but they still appear and if we’re open to exploring where they go, assuming they feel right for us at the time, then it can often lead us where we wanted to go, even if it didn’t seem like it on the surface.
Looking forward to part 2!
Love it! Great episode 🙂 Thank you
Look forward to seeing more of these really feels like we are there with you all.
Hello Jamie and Colleen,
I am not on Facebook, prefer not to, and I wish you have an option to send in questions from this site. Thanks.
Jesse here – feel free to ask any questions here in the comment section. Anything that you’d like to ask related to the network can also be sent privately to Jamie via email at email@example.com. 🙂
I truly LOVE these kinds of spontaneous episodes. Raw. Real. Spontaneous. Pure awesomeness!! Thank you!
This is a really good chat session! I agree with the move where your heart leads in career and home life. I had worked over 16 yrs in the hospitality industry and A/R work as well as office management. I was very good at my job and content. Then as Spirit came more fully into my life, I got divorced and went to school for LMBT to attune my healing skills which included Reiki into my life. I straddled the two worlds for a while and once we left Vegas and moved to the country in NC, I changed careers fully and worked as a contractor for Massage and Bodywork in primarily rehabilitation for injuries (sshhh don’t tell but I added Reiki into all my sessions in some form hahaaa). Then once my cervical spine got too fragile and I had to quit working outside of the home, Spirit came walking in my door and hasn’t left since! Now I work as a medium/ healer for those who are sent my way and as Jamie knows, I am in the “vacation portion” of my life plan. HAHA!
I do not own a cell phone. Can you believe it?!? I gave it up when we moved to the woods in 2005 and honestly, it has been one of the best moves I did! We have a digital landline and an answering machine (yes, they still make them!). I do use my laptop for my socializing since I keep it very limited and to run my business since all my sessions are done either phone or skype. But I will say, when that battery is low, it is shut down and off on a table and I am puttering around the house or out on the property or out in town. When my kids were all still teens living at home, we had a rule on the cell phones since they had them. NO PHONES allowed during dinner which we had family dinner at the table every night and it was time to share about our days and what was going on in our lives. My kids still do this now that they are on their own. We don’t even answer the house phone during dinner as that is our personal time with each other. Go out to dinner, no phones at the table.
Follow where the heart leads and life will not disappoint even when there may be a few hurdles along the way.
