Jill Wigmore-Welsh : Who Do I Work With?
Are you a DIY person, are you someone who explores all the time, wanting to find out how things work, how things tick, what goes on in the world?
Not just the outside of yourself world. The world of how to build a house. How to design a building. How to make bricks, what the materials are, where do they come from, how do they mine them and where? What the living standards are of the people who live in that country?
But also, your internal world. The world where you wonder about yourself and your interaction with others. Do you go deep and feel inside your body and notice tensions and responses and reactions and emotions as they rise?
A state of being where you enjoy having conversations about global perspectives on life and the universe. Explore internal, external relationships between family members and friendships at work and how to evolve your business.
I call that being a DIY person. Someone who’s interested in the flat pack of life and how you can make and create from pure nature. How you can transform seemingly everyday words into incredibly passionate phrases and sentences that touch the hearts of the people who read them
Just recently I’ve been told that DIY is wrong. When I’ve wanted to discover how to make a website, how to make a membership site, how to make a subscription part of my website, how to take better photographs and how to write better copy.
I’ve been told this is the wrong way to do things.
I’ve been told that I should employ somebody else to do it because they’re better. That I would get it done more quickly and better if I hired someone else to do it, that it’s cheaper, overall, and easier to outsource to people who are experts.
That’s true if you have the funding, the resources available to pay for the very, very best. Because the very, very best of everything, the best in quality is always more expensive. Because people who have invested so much time learning how to be good, do things with effortless ease, they give profound quality.
But, when I’m exploring for myself to design my website and make it, it’s so I understand how the process goes, what flows together. There is a need to know how it all works before I can imagine a project, visualize it, live it breathe it, design it then ask someone to build it. Are you the same, are you someone who wants to know how things work, so you know the how of creating something?
Have you always been someone who takes things to pieces and puts them back together again? Choosing words and rearranging them, taking paint, and remixing and applying, capturing views and objects, and looking from a different perspective, flavours, scents, mixing your senses. Are you an artist, an artisan who likes to repair and renew, create rather than throw away and replace?
If you were to come to visit me and we were to go somewhere that I love, it would be we went to an auction house.
Piles of things in boxes stacked high, that someone else has thrown away, need to be rid of, need to raise funds from by selling. Everything sits, waiting to be adopted again and used and loved.
We would wander around and look at what some people might consider to be junk and find, nearly hidden among things, rare treasures, mysterious objects as they scream “transform me into something beautiful.” A decorative artifact for a house or the garden or something to wear or read or see.
Antiques, I love vintage I love old things with a history. I collect old Henriette Willebeek Le Mair, postcards and prints and first edition books because I like the whimsical nature of her drawings and colours. And I love and adore to read her own personal story, not just the stories in the books but the story of her life.
It’s the same when you bring a problem to me. Something that is pressing and problematic that is causing you significant distress. I’m curious I listen hard because I’m interested in discovering the aspects of you that are holding you back from changing.
What are those parts of your life, those things that cause you to recycle all the time? Those parts of you that keep going back in time into your lousy failure memories as if they’re happening today? Then re-living those things that happened and creating a bad day today like the one you had all those years ago.
It happens when people have pain. It happens when people have had trauma, and it occurs when people have illness and injury. When you have an accident when you don’t feel well when somebody in the family is sick, it’s confusing, and it’s a problem.
That’s when you turn to me and being DIY I love to explore and discover all the little treasures and pieces that are there. Then help you to fit them back together so that you can move through life as a highly restored individual. Able not only to function in life but with love for those cracks.
When you have something that’s broken to have those very cracks filled with the most beautiful gold makes their decoration into a feature.
When you look at yourself in the mirror what you must see are not wrinkles and scars, but amazing stories and history and resilience and the incredible power of yourself that you must remember.
As a DIY, I work with people who enjoy vintage who enjoy restoration and quality. Folk who are curious about them self and why they are behaving as they are today. What it was about the past they hold on to, that makes their today?
To change you need to have a beacon shining light ahead of you that is pulling you forward. Something so powerful and appealing that it fills you with passion. You want it so badly that desire is more significant than the struggle you will go through to get it. Your willing to commit and know it will be excruciatingly harsh, but the reward is worth it.
It’s tough, and its hard work, but winners keep on. They keep on and if they fall, fail, get injured they feel beaten. But after they’ve gathered their broken pieces of self and body back up again they resume the struggle. They fall and climb up, they keep struggling, training, and learning. They get better and stronger and more powerful and more capable of performing the actions required to reach the goal that they desire.
I strive for that and assist other people when they want that as well. My life is dedicated to personal improvement, to the service that I provide, to quality provision. So, I study, learn, listen, make mistakes, fall, rise, and repeat the process.
My passion, my beacon is helping people to harness their struggle. It’s like reaching out and guiding them a little towards their lighthouse. Sometimes they have lost their way but once they spot their bright shining vision and mission their inner spark ignites, and they are power passion fuelled and drive forwards
In some ways, it’s easier to work with you if you have already begun to understand that you create your own thoughts and feelings. You comprehend that other people don’t make you feel angry or upset. That your self-belief isn’t something that you were born with and that you can change it. That action is what gets things done, not thinking about problems.
Some people haven’t reached this point, and if you are not at that stage of readiness to work with me one to one, then that’s why my website includes useful knowledge tips. Courses you can access, audios you can listen to which will help you reset your compass and upgrade your thinking
What would be the benefit to you to explore how you can have the magic that seems to take place in other people’s lives? Those events which appear to happen to others by luck or coincidence. The way that they make a significant recovery overcome pain, manage to live the best life despite poor health.
I’m creative and love DIY, taking problems and turning them into something completely different. It’s a powerfully present positive way to work and live which has an infectious component. The whole process is like blowing air under an injured person’s wings and helping them rediscover how to fly. How to leave their wounded grounded state behind and re-join the migrating soaring flock.
