How I fell in love with the Enneagram

Updated: Feb 24, 2022

Hi Everyone,

My name is Crystal and I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself and share with you how and why I found so much love for the Enneagram.

A couple of years ago I was doing a lot of soul searching and quite honestly, unhappy. The years preceding had brought a lot of changes, with family passing, other home dynamics changing, friendships that were deteriorating and at the core of it I had come to realize I didn’t really love myself. I had so much to be thankful for but I felt like something was missing. I wanted to be happier and be more self-assured. I struggled to understand Why I was so anxious meeting new people? Why did I neglect my own needs but could look after others with a passion? Did I just need to work harder, but at what? Change myself? I had lots of questions and then I would promptly tune them out and go lend a hand somewhere to someone else to drown out my own thoughts.

You see, I have had a love for people and have wanted to help them my whole life. It brings me such joy to help someone see all their amazing qualities that I already do or make their day brighter. Being a helper has been my passion BUT also my downfall. I would help others and neglect myself, help others until I was resentful or insert myself without being asked believing I could save anyone. How could I change my heart when at my core that is who I am…

Finding the Enneagram a couple years ago as I embarked on this self growth journey brought me so much self understanding, and confidence. I felt understood in ways I never had before. Understanding how I cope with stress, knowing the natural lens in which I see the world with and how knowing my core desire in life I can finally see where my actions come from.

We don’t have to transform the core of who we are but learning about it can sure highlight what we can do from a healthier place.

After using the enneagram to find peace, self love and contentment in who I was I found my calling. This is where I am meant to teach and coach others through. The Enneagram is a tool not the total answer, you are the answer, the self reflection, the moments of clarity as you decide not to go down that stress path and come back to yourself. I finished my certification course through a school that teaches with a lot of grace. We need grace more than ever in this world. Let me show you how to have grace with yourself.

Your motivation might not be to be loved like mine but we all have something that motivates us. My role as a coach is to help you uncover your core motivation and assist you to see your own amazing side and empower you to grow into it fully. Please know you are amazing the way you are, your true self needs to be accented with healthy habits but not overhauled or changed. Once you see the superpower in yourself and have the tools to know when you are heading off track; anything is possible.

The healthiest relationships come from owning yourself first.

—-much love
