Whatever is going on in our lives, our body is where we receive feedback about it. It shows us when things are out of balance, too much, not healthy, or in conflict. And it also shows us when we are happy and balanced and things are good.
In our accelerated and busy lives, it has become more and more normal to feel stressed and tense, and to have at least a low level of tensional pain. On top of it, we are very demanding and critical towards our body, and we frequently use it in a way that is not very caring and passes beyond its boundaries.
This meditation is an invitation to relax and cherish your body. It allows you to let go of tension, and to perceive other aspects of your life that are burdening your body, limiting your health, and negatively influencing your physical experience. Let go of pain, tension, burdens, judgments, emotions or blockages, and find a caring and positive attitude towards this vital physical aspect of your life.
We all need other people. We are human. And that is genuinely ok! But when we act against our own needs, or we put other people’s approval, recognition, or love over ourselves, then it stops being a healthy exchange. Many of us can observe in daily life how we compromise, only to get something from the people around us. And how much time do we spend worrying about what others think?!
Then, there is always that friend that says – “what do you care about what they think?”… and we know, the friend is right. But it just doesn’t feel that way. And it won’t feel that way until we recognize which inner need we have, that we want others to fulfill, and how it can be met. When we take our responsibility of our own needs, we can learn to fulfill them. We can even learn to recognize that we are complete – and then we can approach others in a completely different way: less dependent, needy or manipulative, and more genuine and open.
This meditation is an invitation to explore your own needs and let go of the (sometimes) immature desire for others to fulfill them! You can stop pulling on others, and embark with me on a journey into yourself. Open up to discovering your wholeness and coming back to yourself, as a strong, complete, clear and resourceful human being! You can then rediscover yourself in your relationships, and change some unhealthy patterns on the way. When you are self-sufficient and emotionally independent, you don’t have to burden other people with responsibilities that don’t correspond to them – and you will be surprised at how light and new your relationships can turn out to be.
We’re always surrounded by negativity, people who pull us down and make us feel bad, places and activities that drain our energy. Sometimes it leads us into a state of being overwhelmed and exhausted, and mostly we cannot avoid being exposed to it. And if we try, life finds a way of making us face what’s there for us to learn: Because our normally positive partner goes through a rough time, or we have to face hardships, or we just don’t have the means to change our current surroundings.
Negative energy is contagious (just as positive energy)! It burdens and stresses our body and makes us tired and negative in our thinking and the way we feel.
So we have to learn to “let it go”, but also to face negativity in a way that doesn’t engage so profoundly that it changes your sense of self and your perspective on life.
This meditation is an invitation to let go of other people’s negativity, and healing the parts of you that make you bring it in, hold on to it, or resist it in the first place. As you discover and heal these parts, you find new ways of connecting and being present. And maybe you can discover ways of bringing a little more positivity, love and light into the negativity that used to affect you. Join me in this process, and discover that you’re safe, protected and complete at any moment!
Failure is a concept and an experience that influences the way we feel, think, act, are in a very profound way. Sometimes it is present just as fear – the inner message that we might fail, and that failing is something we have to avoid. And then it may create enormous pressure and stress – we put so much effort into trying not to fail.
In other situations, it shows up as the assumption that we will fail – something that already is a fact. Then, it can be accompanied by anxiety, guilt, shame, sadness, or any other negative emotion or physical state.
In any case, if we experience the (impending) failure, it is just an energy that is part of our experience, affecting our bodies and minds.
This meditation is an invitation to see failure for what it is and to explore it without resistance – thereby giving yourself the permission to release it from your body and mind – and your current experience. Stop anticipating failure as a possible reality in your life – and discover who you are beyond these patterns of thoughts and feelings, and bring that positive reality of your Self into your daily and more active life.
We all want to experience abundance. We want to have more money, more freedom, more options, or more comfort. We are so driven by our goals and visions, that sometimes we forget that it’s not about getting somewhere, but being somehow. Abundance is and inner state, and attitude, the experience of flow, generosity, and openness. And it only has very little to do with money, but generally, with experiencing the fullness and infinite possibilities of life – in any area of your existence.
The energies that most frequently block our experience of abundance are
- the desire to get somewhere or receive something,
- the guilt about not being worthy or not deserving,
- and the fear that we won’t have enough or receive what we need.
If we want to experience abundance, we have to look at the present moment, who we are right here and now. We have to open up to receiving, and be open to giving. Receiving and giving are always in a balance. If we are not willing to give, the balance is off and the flow is interrupted. So we are not able to receive either. And if on some level we don’t feel that we can or should receive, we will start holding on and limiting what we give.
This meditation is an invitation to release the fear, guilt and wantingness that block our experience of abundance in the present. It will help you open up to giving and to receiving, and it proposes a way to shift your perspective and see and feel that everything you need is already within you. That’s where you can feel abundance, joy and gratitude. Trust that you already and always have exactly what you need, and sooo much more – right in the realm of your awareness.
Sleep is an important part of balancing ourselves, our energy, and our lives. When there’s a lot going on in our lives, it can sometimes be really difficult to relax, to calm down, and even to sleep. The mind goes at race speed, repeats thoughts over and over, and we just cannot relax. And even if or when we sleep, we can wake up without energy, exhausted, or just in a negative inner space. It is as if we were working through something while we are sleeping.
This can even happen when there’s not so much going on. Do you wake up energetically and positively – or do you have to spend your morning time “working on” getting yourself “out” of it, and into an active and positive perspective?
We don’t always have an inner permission to relax. We follow our inner beliefs and convictions that we have to work at it, think about it, process, get ahead – and this happens largely based on subconscious attitudes and belief structures, or negative emotions that just won’t “let us stop”.
This meditation is an invitation to connect with an inner field of rest and relaxation, and release our attitudes and emotions that keep us “working” when we sleep. It can be a journey to discovering how, while you rest, your problems resolve themselves, and how life goes on in the “right” direction even while you are asleep. Program your mind in a way that will allow you to sleep, to charge your batteries, and to return to your conscious awareness with energy and positivity.
Is joy an integral part of your life? Do you laugh frequently, enjoy your work, your relationships, your days – and feel alive?
Joy is really our innate inner state – and when we are not burdened by stress, worries, obligations, negative emotions and old patterns, joy comes up by itself. So when you life is hard, the goal may be to release suffering, and when it is just “ok”, you can continue on the path of growth and go for JOY.
Joy has a lot to do with experiencing ease. No pressure, no obligation, no goal. In order to do that, we need to love ourselves enough to choose to take good care of ourselves: To give ourselves time for renovation, time for recovery, time for things and processes with no immediate “outcome” or “result”. In our busy lives, making time is a huge challenge. And yet, it is not the practical difficulty that holds us back most, but our hidden beliefs about not being deserving.
This meditation is an invitation to create joy: make space for it, allow it, deserve it, remove the obstacles – and to connect with the most joyful inner part of yourself. Give yourself 30 minutes to go through this process with me – and find a joy that can nurture you, and your projects, and everything that is important to you in your life now.
In the world of Energy Psychology we know that what we feel and think about money matters. If we have a positive attitude and feelings about it, that’s when we are actually free to earn more, save more, spend more wisely, and enjoy what money can buy for us. But most of us have a history of worry, fears, limitations and restrictions when it comes to money. It is still an area of our lives that we don’t tend to see as “spiritual”, and that we have a hard time talking about. Money is often a “tabu”, and it’s not so easy to be honest to ourselves about our money story, and about the way we feel and think.
Saving, spending, earning, owning, giving, investing, enjoying, sharing … those are just a few of the relevant areas around money. Money is tightly linked to what we perceive to be our own value and deservingness. And no matter how much we have, we are all motivated and driven by patterns that have to do with how we grew up, the models we had, our family background… our culture, religion – and so many more factors. And there is no upbringing that has only positive or only negative sides – any experience with money contains always both.
This meditation is an invitation to face your negative feelings and limiting beliefs that are part of your “money story”, and to create the opportunity to transform them and let them go. Shift your energy around money, and allow life to support you more. Get to a place where you can feel empowered, in control, relaxed and trusting – and experience abundance!
Whether we have to sell ourselves or our ideas, convince somebody, resolve a conflict, handle authority figures, do well in a presentation or in an audition – it’s important that we stand strong and are able to take a risk and show ourselves.
We have to let go of worrying about what the other person might think of us, and put what we think of ourselves first. When we give ourselves unconditional approval, and we choose to support ourselves no matter what, that’s when we can handle to possibility of being rejected. We may not influence whether others reject us – but whether we do, we have a choice!
This meditation is an invitation to stand in your strength, letting go of all the ways in which you weaken and criticize yourself, facing whatever life throws at you. Be yourself and show yourself – no matter who may see you, or what they may think. Be strong, and show yourself!
Sometimes we face situations in life where we just can’t get ahead. It’s as if there was a glass ceiling, and we can look through, and know where we want to go, but we can’t “rise higher” or “get there”. We cannot get through, no matter how much we try.
When we’ve hit our head one too many times on that glass ceiling, maybe then it’s time to look inwards and to transform what it’s made of. Amongst other things, this can bring up blockages that come from the systems we are part of and connected to – our ancesters and family system for example.
This meditation is an invitation to explore and transform your glass ceiling, and to pass beyond your limitations into a space of infinite possibilities. Enjoy!
If you forgive, you are the main beneficiary. Holding a grudge or remembering how others have failed you in the past is a sure way to hold on to negative energies in the form of negative emotions – and those affect your body, but also your wellbeing and happiness. They lower your life energy, and thereby weaken you. I hope I have given you reason enough to want to forgive!
When we want to forgive, we can. It is a chose to let go of the past and the “wrongs” and pains, and to choose being loving with yourself and others right here and now. Of course, it i much easier to enact this choice when we raise our energy – as for example, in the process of meditation.
Even if you are have forgiven a lot – there is always another layer, some aspect of pain that you can let go of now, that maybe wouldn’t even come into your awareness yesterday.
So, join me in this process of forgiveness, release, and letting go – and relieve yourself of the burdens of the past. Enjoy!
Self-love is at the core of so many things we desire – good relationships, success, joy, happiness… you name it! When we choose to love ourselves just as we are, without any conditions or judgments, we can start to take care of ourselves and our needs – and as a result we have more to give, more to create, more to share.
Self-love helps you to develop your self-esteem, and it has a lot to do with accepting all the parts of yourself, even the ones you are still judging and rejecting right now. If you can’t do that, how would anyone else do it for you? This meditation helps you to integrate the parts of you that come from your ancestors and roots – exploring yourself as a connected being. And it may help you to find an answer to the pressure, and judgment that you should love yourself more, and the desire to experience love in a certain way – which are often the very source of resistance to the experience of love within yourself.
This meditation is an invitation to discover and uncover your love for yourself, and let it affect your life and the people around you . Enjoy!
The new year is a natural time of new beginnings. But we may need a fresh start on other occasions, too. And when we get it, it is almost always a relief, and brings us hope, direction and new energy and aliveness.
Frequently we try to make a new beginning by cutting ourselves off, leaving something or someone behind, separating ourselves, and we have an understanding that beginning something new means getting away from what was and what we don’t want any more.
Discover with me that the most organic, easiest and lasting changes and new beginnings are rooted not in separation, but in connection. The power to move into something new and to create something different comes from being one with your past, your ancestors, even your past mistakes and shortcomings and failures. Only when we don’t have to run away from something, we can peacefully move towards what we want.
This meditation is an invitation to discover your new beginning and to let it arise within you from a place of connection and presence, where your wisdom and power unite to allow you to move forward. Enjoy!
Enjoying Christmas – or any holiday for that matter – is not always easy. We are so busy and stressed trying to get everything done and to make it perfect, trying to create a wonderful experience for ourselves and our loved ones, that sometimes we forget that the really important things are already within ourselves, and that maybe all it needs to experience them is a deep breath and the decision to give them our attention.
Sometimes we are going through difficult life circumstances, and we are just too tired and too down to be able to connect with energies and feelings like peace, love, joy, fun, safety, calmness… you name them!
This meditation is an invitation to you to give room to what burdens you, and to discover the beautiful state you most need to feel just within the reach of a breath. We really don’t need to change anything: When we breathe and are aware, then we can allow ourselves to ENJOY THE HOLIDAYS!
Loosing weight is really difficult when we do it from a place of obligation, or a sensation of guilt or not being good enough as we are. Frequently, feeling so bad about ourselves is what makes us want to overeat in the first place, and that mechanism only gets stronger when we feel that we are depriving ourselves, or we experience a sensation of failure about our weight and health.
It is soooo much easier to eat healthy and exercise when it is an act of loving self-care. It can be easy, it can feel good and be a light and joyful process.
This meditation invites you to appreciate your body and everything it does for you every day, and to fill yourself with and love and gratitude that are the perfect place to start taking care of yourself and your body as your physical expression.
