Hello, my name is Amy Miller. I’m a 31 year old, Irish girl living in beautiful Sydney. My day job is working as a Planning Manager for a large Direct Marketing wine company which basically means I decide what wine to buy and make and then work with the Marketing team to sell it. A pretty cool job really and yes it involves tasting wine at work!
It all sounds pretty rosy – amazing boyfriend, living by the ocean in a beautiful part of the world, dream job where I get free wine, if someone had told me 10 years ago I’d be where in this position then I would have been thrilled! Yet until about a year ago I knew something wasn’t quite right. I struggled to get up in the morning, was constantly sick, had a chronic illness, was wishing my weeks away so I could get drunk and party at the weekends, was snapping at Johnny for no reason, had low self-esteem, yo-yoing weight, was reading novel after novel to escape, was wasting my money on clothes to make me happy and was generally unmotivated and drained. Looking back on it now I was just existing, struggling to get through each day and not truly living.
So what has changed since the start of 2011?
I had chronic sinusitis for over a year at that stage and after going round and round in circles with illness, doctors, antibiotics, no energy, more antibiotics – I was FED UP with everything! Sinusitis is such a debilitating problem because its constant discomfort and pain, it’s difficult for others to see anything wrong with you. I decided that in order to heal I needed to look elsewhere and take it into my own hands. This led me on an alternative healing journey and finally taking responsibility for my life.
This healing journey involved many modalities including naturopathy, acupuncture, kinesiology, counseling and well as natural self-care methods, affirmations, detoxing, changing my diet and most importantly, changing my attitude! I’m happy to say I’ve overcome my sinusitis and it’s great to be free of that burden, such a relief. As I was healing, I realised that something was still missing. I had it all but I wasn’t bouncing out of the bed in the morning and I couldn’t blame it on illness anymore. I needed a goal or hobbie, something I could really sink my teeth into. This then led onto almost desperately trying to find something I was passionate in. I could see it in other people – Johnny and his passion for golf and football, my brother and his enjoyment from running, a friend who lives and breathes yoga, another friend who loves cake decorating. I could list things that I enjoyed – reading, pilates, nutrition and yet I felt as if I was pushing square pegs into round holes, major frustration! I knew I wasn’t living my passion and yet I couldn’t work out what my passion was! Even a psychic couldn’t pin point what I would be doing in the future.
I started looking outside my comfort zone and stumbled on a meditation group that sounded quite intriguing. I’d never meditated before so thought I’d go along and see what it was about. This turned out to be the beginning of my journey of self-discovery and also the beginning of my spiritual journey. The meditation group led onto a Psychic Development course which was so powerful I realised I had hidden talents. I learnt about Angels and they fast became my best friends, guiding me through my days. I felt as if I was getting closer to something but still not quite there and yet my guidance kept telling me to be patient. I wanted to do a Reiki course and had found one that appealed but I was being given signals to wait. I wanted to sign up for other courses but they all fell through. I couldn’t understand it! I’d finally found an area I was interested in and yet is STILL wasn’t working out. What was going on?! Then just before I lost my faith a lovely friend pointed out a college to me that did a Diploma of Energetic Healing. I can still remember the day I opened the email and followed the link to the website, it was a ‘light bulb’moment and I cried with happiness. This diploma included ALL the individual courses I had been trying to do – Reiki, Psychic Development, Crystal workshops, Healing Essences – my guidance had been asking me to wait so that it could all come together in one package –BRILLIANT!
So where am I at today? I’ll introduce myself again…
Hello, my name is Amy and I love life. I have a wonderful boyfriend, live by the ocean, I’m on a journey of self-discovery and I’m following my dreams. I have a 9-5 job at a wine company and in my spare time I study Energetic Healing. I lead a healthy lifestyle by watching what I eat, juice & blend, do gentle exercise, meditate, self-nurture, constantly say affirmations, gratitude journal, read spiritual topics (I still read trashy novels, just not as often!) I’m very happy and finally feel as if I’m living on purpose.

I’d like to share my journey (past, present and future) with you. I’m learning SO much incredible information that hopefully you can pick out some valuable insights to help you on your journey. I’ll take you through the stages of my healing journey, perhaps there might be something in there that applies to you. I’d also like to share my learning’s from my Energy Healing diploma, there’s a fountain of amazing information from that! You can find out what I’m currently up to and watch me uncover my true life’s purpose. I’m not fully there yet (maybe I never will be) but I will try and you can witness me conquering fears, getting things wrong, getting it right, fumbling my way through and stepping out of my comfort zone – all to find my true self and to try and make a difference to the world.
Hopefully by sharing my journey you can find your true passion and be your true shining self.
