Hello, my name is Helen Micallef and this is the story of how I discovered my life purpose.
60 years ago, I was born on a tiny island in the Mediterranean called Malta.
I was five months old when my family migrated to Australia, and being a migrant then was very different to being a migrant today.
Growing up in the 60’s I just wanted to be the same as everyone else. During lunchtime I didn’t want the round sandwich, I wanted the square ones like the other kids.
Don’t get me wrong, I had a wonderful childhood with loving, encouraging parents, but I was not true to myself or where I came from and as a result became shy and withdrawn.
This held me back from the things I wanted to do. I wanted to be a teacher but didn’t think I was good enough or clever enough to achieve this goal so I did the worst possible thing: I didn’t even try.
I suppressed the things that made me unique and it was not until I was married that I began to come out of my shell and realise just what I was capable of.
I went against what was considered the status quo of the time and got engaged at 17, married at 19 and had my first child at 22. I pushed myself out of my comfort zone and joined a Party Plan business, achieving many accolades and ignoring those who asked when I was going to get a “real job”.
I embarked on a spiritual journey that many people considered crazy because it was not considered “normal”. I handled my health through natural therapies and even said no to chemo and radiation despite being totally against my doctors’ suggestions.
Throughout my colourful life I have helped myself and countless others through difficult times and making some truly massive changes, and through this I have discovered my greatest joy: helping others.
I love it when someone asks for help and seeing the joy on their faces as we come up with a solution to their problem. I happily listen and give not just 100% of me but so much more.
I have finally realised I have a gift and natural ability to not only talk to someone about what is troubling them but to also listen to their concerns and then, as if out if nowhere, blurting out a solution!
I love seeing people do well in life and that’s why I call myself a Life Improvement Consultant.
No one should struggle through life and sometimes all they need is someone to talk to and listen, and that is what I do really well.
If you have a problem that needs solving or just want to change something in your life, let’s have a chat and get you on your way to overcoming your obstacles and achieving your goals!
A single mum with three children came to me when she was ready to make some changes in her life. After her third child, she stopped focusing on her own health and wellbeing and was feeling embarrassed about re-starting her personal training business. Since starting her program, clothes that were too tight are now fitting comfortably and more importantly, she has relaunched her PT business. In her words, “I feel like my Mojo is back”.
Losing weight and feeling great
I recently worked with a woman who was ready to lose weight and start feeling great. After completing the Basic Cleansing System, she lost five inches from her waist and had to take in her trousers three times! She has maintained the weight loss, her energy has increased and she feels great.
Feeling good is not only about weight loss.
A grandmother came to see me because she wanted to feel more healthy and energetic. She tweaked her already healthy lifestyle and added some great supplements and more nutritious snacks and now feels more energetic.
A man who had only a cup of coffee for breakfast started on the Youthful Ageing System, kicked his bad breakfast habit and has found that he has more energy and can get through his busy work day with ease.
