Many years ago I made a wish to the Universe; to be true to my heart no matter what. Since that moment, my body is giving me clear signals every time I abandon myself and forget listening to my intuition. It is like a whisper from within and sometimes comes in the shape of a bodily pain.
It is our birthright to feel free and at peace. One way to freedom is to treasure the small moments in life.
To sit in contemplation in nature and observe a plant or a creature can bring great inner peace. One of my favourite contemplation is cloud gazing. Watching a spider weaving a web fascinates me deeply - such precision in it's intricate weaving!
Awakening experiences have helped me to reconnect with inner peace, which I love sharing with others. Awakening is to be fully integrated with the soul force energy. For this to happen (in my eyes) balance and harmony is needed. Body, mind, spirit and emotions. Often we tend to over focus on one part of ourself. I neglected my body for many years and was overly emotional. A key to inner peace is the listening to our intuition. It is possibly the most important learning in life.
In this lifetime I have experienced rebirth and have become a very different being. 30 years of deep inner work, resolving childhood conditionings, is bearing fruit. Now I am free to be myself, and to fully integrate the unique life force energy we all have access to.
Most of my adult life I have worked closely with people, caring for and inspiring them. I am trained in life coaching, counselling, yoga, psychiatric health care and dementia, nutrition, massage, healing, dreamwork and shamanism. I have studied psychology and movement therapy at university.
Photography is a passion of mine, especially nature and water reflection photography and I also paint spiritual images. The artwork is for sale, see the Photo and Art page.
When I found the four agreements, they instantly resonated with me.
Don Miguel Ruiz is a Mexican shaman who guides individuals to personal freedom. He has created the four agreements which are;
*Be impeccable with your word - speak with integrity, say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.
*Do not take anything personally - nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream.
*Do not make assumptions - find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate as clearly as you can.
*Always do your best - your best is going to change from moment to moment. Simply do your best and you will avoid self judgement and regret.
