I remember meeting the Zen master who had the ability to smile with his Being. There was a luminous quality to the man with a very gentle face, and a seemly endless patience for a three year old exploring his sacred environment.Continue reading
Destiny is a Funny Thing
Destiny is a Funny Thing. For those who have taken a moment to read my biography on this website (https://orionmott.com/meet-me), you’ll note that my childhood was far from ordinary. Various mentors, healers, spiritual guides, and shamans predicted that my life would be marked by a destiny as a prominent healer. Destiny, however, has a peculiar nature. While the concept of predestination can be intriguing, it often carries an undertone of restriction. Despite the prophecies, I held my belief in personal freedom steadfast, finding the idea of predestination somewhat stifling.
As I ventured into my twenties, I endeavored to fit in with societal norms – a decision I’d later regard as a mistake. During this period, I pursued studies in Kinesiology, Psychology, and Philosophy at university, followed sports, and worked as a personal trainer at a reputable fitness center in Toronto. In retrospect, it was a pursuit of a so-called “normal” life, aimed at satisfying my ego. For the majority of my early years, my ego reigned supreme, asserting its dominance. There was a sense of control over my life, a sense that was fleeting and illusory. The precipice of change was approaching, and I remained oblivious until it was too late.
Upon entering my thirties, a wave of irritability and dissatisfaction swept over me. Everything I once desired was now under scrutiny. I began to perceive myself as a target, with the feeling the attacks through the actions and behaviors of others. These negative experiences, which I unwittingly attracted, were a consequence of my resistance to embrace my extraordinary potential. Instead, I exerted tremendous energy to blend in with the ordinary. Looking back, the hardships I encountered served as alarm bells, warning me that I had strayed from my authentic self.
Gradually, the realization dawned on me that I was failing to lead the life I was intended to live. Despite having attained numerous goals, I couldn’t shake off the feeling that my life held more than what I was currently experiencing. I delved into BodyTalk and other healing methods to expand my horizons, although I viewed them as mere curiosities at the time. My exploration of the energy world resulted in a dichotomy within my circle of acquaintances. I experienced encouragement and support from some, while others, fearful of the unknown, expressed disapproval. I began to tread a dual path, selectively sharing my spiritual experiences while keeping others in the dark about these metaphysical concepts.
On the dawn of my fortieth birthday, I made a pivotal decision to live a heart-led life, trusting in the unfolding process and embracing my true self. It wasn’t long before I successfully bridged the gap between the person I was destined to be and the one I had been willing to accept. For years, I had been silently healing individuals, but it was at this juncture that I emerged from the spiritual shadows.
My life erupted in a multitude of directions. I evolved into a medical intuitive, a reiki master, a BodyTalk practitioner, a Bio-mechanical specialist, and a brain healer specializing in concussions, ADHD, and personality disorders. Soon after, I directed my skills towards heart clearing and emotional/spiritual counseling.
The trajectory of my life has been a fascinating journey – I began as a healer, distanced myself from it, only to rediscover it later in life. Indeed, destiny has a unique way of unfolding itself.”
