Freedom is a mindset

Freedom is a mindset Freedom is an experience, a feeling, an emotion or sensation - and the only place that experience is created, is in you. There's absolutely nothing anyone can do in order to take that experience away from you. Even though at times it feels violently so. But how amazing is that?! - that you alone hold the incredible gift it is, being able to choose? Your mindset and [...]

Do what makes your heart sing

Heart singing Recently I returned to my yoga mat for the first time in nearly 2 1/2 yrs. Ever since my beloved Flex Yoga shut its doors, I wandered the streets yogaless. I scoured and searched without finding. Tried other places without them being the right fit, for me. You see, I loooove the monotony in the kind of Sivananda Yoga, Christina taught.

Love with love

Love in high dosage One of the things I experience the most with my clients, when they first sit across from me, is their heartfelt wish of making a difference, of being a difference in the world, their commitment to going the distance. If you breathe deeply for a moment and notice, then you most likely know what I'm talking about. That silent vibration inside you, like a sonar feeling an echo. The "Love with [...]

Putting yourself out there, with all of [...]

If your business & life was a movie… what would you see?

Would you wanna see your own life as a movie?Up until not too long ago, I'm not sure I would. Now I know that I alone hold the key to every scene played out so beautifully in my movie, even the so-called bad parts. Honestly, there are certain parts I still wouldn't want you to see. I'm not hiding them, I just haven't completely forgiven myself in those areas. I haven't chosen to rewrite the [...]

Holy encounter

The Holy encounter During my ACIM studies over the weekend this quote struck a cord with me and resonated. "When you meet anyone, remember it is a holy encounter. As you see him you will see yourself. As you treat him you will treat yourself. As you think of him you will think of yourself. Never forget this, for in him you will find yourself or lose yourself." - A Course in Miracles It goes [...]

Love – it’s so simple…

...that it's complicated. Love in business "Fear complicates, Love simplifies." We humans, you and I or rather our Ego has a tendency to complicate things way more than they really are. To actively choose a business and a life based in love is not a carnival ticket to more clients and greater insight. It's continued work, that at times a can seem unbearably demanding. In fact it requires something we humans (at least in the [...]
