As a Social Worker for 28 years, I used to feel burn out was exclusive to people in that profession, then I opened my Business and started meeting all these Entrepreneurs who suffered from Burn Out and like me give to others and their Business but don’t know how to give to themselves.
Permission is the key to beat burn out.
But permission is something we find difficult to give to ourselves.
Permission to relax.
Permission to reflect.
Permission to ask questions about where we are going, why we want to go there and how do we get there.
Burn out is a phenemon that is sadly becoming so common in many different Industries as well as in the Caring Professions.
But I find what burns you out also reignites your soul.
Life is Paradoxical.
We all have a mission, a purpose and want to find kindred spirits like us.
But what fires you up can burn you out and what burns you out fires you up.
Who do you want to serve?
Why you want to serve?
How do you serve?
For me these are the questions that provide the answers but really deep ones that take years to answer?
After all the questions are more important than the answers!
Love to know if permission to relax and reflect is a struggle for some of you in this technological age where unplugging from technology is an ongoing battle?
Am I totally alone?
Indeed Abstaining from Digital Devices is something I advocate at least once a week for several hours and is the second step in all my Coaching Programs.
Abstaining from Digital Devices means you can have time and space to ask those questions and together via Meditation and Gratitude practices, you can be inspired and then take inspired action to pursue and develop your purpose.
In this day and age though it takes alot of discipline and will power to abstain from our digital devices.
They entertain us, tell the time for us, remind us, wake us up and we feel lost without them.
If you feel you cannot walk away from the device, I suggest that you put the settings on your phone on airplane mode and try that method for abstaining and see how that improves the quality of your life.
I thoroughly recommend you at least try for an hour to be away from your device.
It is a sure way to increase your energy levels.
If anything in this blog has really resonated with you and you would like to discuss the subject further with Taniya privately then use this link.
Taniya Hussain qualified as a Social Worker in 1991 from Coventry University in England. She has been working on the front lines, consistently holding space for individuals and families for three decades especially, children and young people on the margins of society. Taniya studied Psycho-dynamic counselling from 1991 to 1993 at Goldsmiths College in London. Taniya met Sheikha Halima Krausen in 1992 and has been studying Islam with her ever since especially Mystical Islam, Tassawuf (Sufism) and walks on the Chisti path. Taniya really started using the power of Jungian Pyschology and Mystical Islam when she started her Online Coaching and Consultancy Business in 2018 and discovered she was a powerful healer. When she discovered Shadow Alchemy in 2019, she started developing this modality into Muslim Alchemy in 2020. She now brands herself as the Muslim Alchemist because she is constantly integrating her knowledge of the Quran and Bible with her vast Social Work experience and her extensive ability of applying Psycho-dynamic, therapeutic techniques to organisational settings, team dynamics and when working with individuals and groups. This has both Online and Offline. Taniya uses skillfully her understanding of the Shadow, that Jung constantly talked about and her Mystical Training plus her experience in inter-faith dialogue since 2003, to help individuals and groups become conscious of what they previously were unconscious of leading to rapid success in their Business, Health and Relationships. Taniya has a great skill in being able to see the blind spots in others and in untanging energetic knots (a term she uses for Shadow) to promote healing from mental and physical disease. She uses her vast expertise and skills to help her Online Clients to get rid of decades of anxiety causing insomnia, depression and suicidal thoughts and marital problems. Clients usually are healed in a short amount of time never needing to invest in Therapy again. She really is the Muslim Alchemist as she turns the shitty experience of clients into golden experiences where they manifest upgraded, wealth, health and relationships all at the same time.
Taniya got married in 1995 and has three sons born in 1996, 2001 and 2003 and lives in Surrey, England and when she is not developing Muslim Alchemy, she loves to spend time with her family and write fiction stories, songs and poems.
She speaks fluent English and Urdu and basic German and French and is learning Arabic and Hebrew.
