RESTLESSNESS – an Invitation to Adjust Course?

Who doesn’t know this sense of restlessness. The mind never stops. Keeping busy seems to keep us in control. Ever felt a slight fear of losing yourself deep down if you stop running around, trying to stay in control? End up stuck in habitual routines, chasing goals, running around doing “important” stuff?

The 21st century invites to innovate AND remember. It takes regular mini-breaks, closing your eyes, going for a little walk in nature, taking a conscious deep breath to check in with oneself while dancing though this chaotic life experience. Nothing we have learned in our culture. Something worthwhile to explore and to create a curious attitude towards.

REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE

What does it mean to remember who you are?

It is most common that we start out life learning to be driven to reach some goals that aren’t really yours. Most people’s auto-pilot setting hasn’t been programed by themselves. That’s normal. Pain, discomfort or sometimes dis-ease or breakdowns have a purpose: They remind you that you are off course. A great opportunity to become curious and exited: Life has more to offer!

PAIN HAS A PURPOSE

It is scary to dare to observe what appears when you let go, when you get out of your own way, when you drop everything and see what stays. Face the fear! Become curious! Get exited! Explore! Fear has a purpose too: it can make you creative in certain situations – if you allow to consciously face it. This is trainable and it can be quite interesting at the beginning and fun in the end!

If we don’t dare to face the fear, the animalistic fight, flight or freeze options set in. Nature works perfectly. We humans have those tools of consciousness. Not using them, is just another habit like watching TV series until late night. BTW reading books about the Power of Now is not the same as using the tools in the book.

LETTING GO CAN BE SCARY

It’s scary to face what you don’t know yet. It’s scary to look deeper without knowing what you will find. It can corrupt your belief system and shake your world. That’s why there are people like me to give you a hand while exploring what else is possible. What else is there that wants to be lived and shared. What believes are really yours and what believes haven been lived so far.

CREATING AN INVITING ENVIRONMENT

It’s so exiting that there are many things we cannot do by working hard on them, such as sleep, digest, relax. And yet those parts are just as important to make the yin-yang go around. You can’t push it, but you can create an environment that allows those things to happen. Nature works perfectly, when we learn to dare, trust, allow. Even sleep is trainable by creating the environment. It might take time but is doable. I recently worked with a business man over a few months who could not sleep well for years after a serious brain tumor operation. This work is rather indirect, applying know-how over a few months with moderation and consistency. It is replacing the reasons, why it is not possible to sleep with new experiences until this experience becomes a solid pattern. Exiting!

CREATIVITY WORKS THROUGH US

Creativity works though us. We are not the doer, we are the instrument. Creativity is more than projecting yesterday’s stories a bit bigger and better towards tomorrow.
Life is creative naturally if we allow it.

STAY CURIOUS! EXPLORE WHAT ELSE IS THERE!

Is JOY trainable?

Is JOY trainable?

Do you know those people who smile like deep frozen, no matter what happens? Training yourself to keep those lips in a smiley position at any cost is not recommendable. All feelings have a natural, healthy purpose, it would be dull and medium-term depressing to fake a smile like a puppet all the time.

In order to deal with challenging situations differently, you can create a new “personal #infrastructure“. No, it’s not about trying to change the people around you, but your daily #lifestyle #habits and personal #response#ability to certain situations. Not just what you do, but the way you do the things you do.

Today we know, that even #genetic predisposition can change (#neuroplasticity). There are amazing studies from #Standford University about lifestyle choices, exercise, breathing techniques, meditation, hormones, gut health, you name it, that prove the impact of lifestyle choices on #health and perceived #happiness. #hubermanlab

KNOWLEDGE is available in the internet. But HOW do CHANGE partly unconscious HABITS?

Hire a Personal Trainer and a nutritionist and a yoga teacher, maybe a psychologist? Train for 30 days and create a new habit?

That works, until you face a SERIOUS CHALLENGE. Then, it is easy to fall back into the old unloved habit.

There is no miracle pill that can make your burnout, restlessness or stress really go away. Yet, there are new #systematic #decisions that can change the way you deal with them.

(Find very useful information at #hubermanlab or check out #walkingguru for Change-Habits-Coaching https://lnkd.in/ge-XxGC!)

Even those of you who suffer from chronic #stress, #psychosomatic illness or chronic #diseases can improve their #wellbeing tremendously with systemized techniques to cope with stress and pain differently. It’s a lifestyle. And it can be fun.

Coordinating, systemizing and adapting #strategies is part of a 12-week-Intensive-Coaching Program. A System of 4 Pillars teaches Know-How, trains and monitors success. #Fallbacks are most valuable during these 3 months! Yes, failure is allowed here. Failures teach very quickly what makes you tick and move the way you do. Mental Coaching identifies true motivators and intentions. Awareness Training in Nature helps to gain Body Awareness and Emotional Awareness. A Clear Strategy including Individual Relaxation Strategies ensures, that you start owning your decision-making power.

 →  BEFORE INVESTING in another Seminar, Coach or Treatment, consider answering the following Coaching Questions:

→ What makes you hungry enough to want to change your own response-ability?

 → What makes you suffer enough to make a first responsible step towards change?

 → Can you visualize yourself to be stronger than “the stinker”?

 → How much energy did you invest to get to where you are right now and what is it, that you are missing?

Joy is a consequence of many small and big decisions – the way you think, the way you respond, the way you act.

I believe: Smart decisions are trainable! The first decision is: Do you stay in the victim position or are you moving on?

Private Yoga Sessions on the Beach

Doable, simple, deep: Private Yoga, Tai Chi, Chikung or Walking Meditation sessions with elements of Alexander Technique and Self-Hypnosis on the beach.

When Yoga Group Sessions don’t do it for you – due to accidents, operations, age-related restricted flexibility, mobility or lack of strength or simply because you are looking for something else, this might be for you:

Sessions are designed individually according to your needs and possibilities. The goal of these sessions is to start introducing a healthy ritual into your life. The reasons why people practice Yoga are different. Some just want to feel fitter, look better. Others reach for a deeper connection and unity experiences. The reason why I teach is simple: facilitate individuals find their way to reconnect, raise awareness and practice what is good for them.

The word ‘Yoga‘ is derived from the Sanskrit root ‘Yuj’, meaning ‘to join’ or ‘to unite’. According to Yogic scriptures the practice of Yoga leads to the union of individual consciousness with that of the Universal Consciousness and a perfect harmony between the mind and body, Man & Nature.

It is not about doing some fancy moves and postures. The path is made by walking in full awareness – presence, living up to what is truly important to you. There are many ways to Rome – as long as you keep Walking – e.g. Tai Chi, Chikung or Walking Meditation. I am happy to assist you exploring what suits you!
For more information please send me a Whatsapp or call +34661682888.

What can I do for you?

5 Excuses that keep you Stuck & How to Change anyway

Who sabotages what when you self-sabotage? What is it that keeps us from living up to our potentials and dreams? What is the big unconscious fear behind self-sabotage?

Human minds are set up to survive. The comfort zone is a seemingly safe place. Everything out to there can easily feel uncomfortable, painful or threatening. Yet, if you don’t dare to go beyond the habitual and the known, you may prevent growth and development or worst case get sick. Here are 5 out of endless excuses. See if you find yours:

5 Excuses to continue Self-Sabotage

Excuse No 1: I have always been like that

Excuse No 2: It is genetic

Excuse No 3: I lack motivation

Excuse No 4: I have no time

Excuse No 5: I can’t afford to

The Art of finding a Healthy Balance

Getting out of the comfort zone and not pushing too extremely is an art: it is the art of finding an adequate balance in the current moment. Almost every aspect of life requires balance: action and relaxation, movement and stillness, giving and receiving, black and white, ying and yang, cashflow, sales, buying, training, focus and widening the perspective. It’s a continuously changing game that requires awareness.

It takes awareness to notice your current status quo and the current need. To realize the fear behind all excuses. Fear of the unknown, fear of letting go of control. Fear of exiting the habitual and relying on life. The typical answer to the question: “How are you?” is “I am fine”, or “I am ok”, which doesn’t say a thing. To get to this place beyond habitual chatter, Monkey Mind chatter, interpretations and assumptions it takes a stillness, shifting from thinking to feeling to being.

Awareness of thoughts and feelings is a tricky enterprise because we tend to judge them into good and bad. As soon as we judge, we crave the good, reject the bad and easily get into resistance.

Personal attitude, conditioning, habits, beliefs – even whole brain areas can change in their anatomy and function for the purpose of optimizing ongoing processes depending on use. Not to talk of physical change, say changing the body.

Let’s take the Heart: it takes no 2 weeks walking and coaching 3 times a week for an hour in a certain way for the heart muscle to grow. Measuring heart rate you will notice that after week 2 a formerly untrained person needs much less heart beats per minute to perform the same terrain in the same time. Heartbeats per minutes decrease, that means the heart muscle has become stronger in only 2 weeks.

It is not important to realize what excuses you use in order to prevent change. Instead of being mad about yourself, realize that the human survival mechanism works and that you do have awareness to lead your system safely beyond the limits of old habits and the illusion of safety, being stuck.

Surrender to Love

What sounds like a love song is true: You can dare to replace sticking to knowing and trying to control the world with trust in tender loving care for yourself and life by applying what it takes – every day. There are hundreds of ways to Rome. All it takes is keep on Walking and making your Path versus Thinking about it.

What’s your excuse?

Here is a “new” approach: Switch from Knowing to surrendering to tender loving care while Walking in order to find that place of deep peace inside. If you need assistance, and learn how to clear your mind during walks and practice Walking Meditation, my job is to coach you along while walking. Then, you do your job, you do your walking. Day by day.

Relaxation Training

Yoga is trendy. Yoga is possible any age, any time. The original purpose of yoga was not to look good. Yoga exercises had the purpose to train the body to be able to sit still over a longer period of time. You don’t need yoga in order to find what you’re looking for. However, yoga can be life-changing, if you find the right teacher.

Find your way

There are many ways and many similar approaches. Many contain a few elements: Consistency and moderation. In order to make a routine a special, nurturing ritual it also takes Awareness training, conscious exercise and healthy lifestyle habits. Finding a healthy balance that feels good is key.

Training to find inner peace

Only in stillness you can reach the place where you find all the answers within.

Conscious walking exercise is a very simple approach for anybody who can walk.

How do you “manage” to hold yourself back from doing what is really good for you?

Are you aware of your deepdown fears and the potential that is hiding there?

Are you willing to become vulnerable and dare to feel whatever you feel without sir pressing or sweet talking unpleasant feelings?

Are you hiding behind knowledge?

Are you living the life you want?

What ever it is you, there is a chance for growth! Attitude towards discomfort, errors and fears is changeable. It can be a pleasant experience to get rid of resistance and start moving old habits.

Do what you want?

It’s perfectly normal not to know what you want or be distracted by social pressure. Things change and needs change. It’s worth to take a break and listen inside to re-evaluate your values. It’s worth to leave the habitual grounds in order to experiment something new. Taking a break and learning to relax is a valuable gift to oneself in order to live happily and stay healthy.

How does your free time look like?

Do you tend to plan every minute in order to make the most out of it? Is there any real time off for you? What is it that you really need?

What do you really need?

Why? or Joy is a decision!

Why?

What’s your WHY? Why do you do what you do?
Why do you want what you want? Why is something important to you?

Knowing your Why helps you connect with your true self by being aware of your values, not just arguments that makes sense. Alignment of head and heart feels goood ✅

Why not?

One answer is: ✅ Why not?

Even though you don’t know, curiosity replacing fear opens up for a whole new world. Yes, it can be risky and yes, it can be a new way of doing things you didn’t even dream of, that far away from your radar! Joy and fun is possible, desirable and doable. 💃

Joy is a decision

Curiosity beating fear, doubt, self-sabotage and fuels the system with energy to explore what else is possible. That’s great, so you don’t just repeat yesterday’s or other people’s stories!!! When this energy gets moving – say you are moved – you can feel your heart beat and joy comes up not just when reaching a goal, but on the path.

Isn’t it perfectly normal that a young person or an old one, who hasn’t been spending most days 8 hours or more in front of a computer screen before finds out, that it doesn’t feel that good to work as a high-paid, successful consultant? Isn’t it absolutely ok to not have a clue how it feels to speed-consult hundreds of people in your doctor’s office to be able to work lucratively and survive?

Sometimes the Why’s can’t be known ahead of time but are to be explored. It’s not only ok, but a lot of fun to experience different scenarios when you orchestrate your play… If only we could understand that #ERRORS # were in fact #learning-opportunities #.

I am still learning and I start liking it 🙂

One more question: Does this resonates with you? Then, please SHARE to inspire other’s to go explore their hidden Why’s !!!

Follow the Joy or: Leaving the habit of fear-based decisions

Below you find a simple approach to changing a habit.

A self-experiment


Step 1: Name a habit you want to get rid of.
Step 2: Identify the trigger*.
Step 3: Perceive the trigger*.
Step 4: Figure out the reward or craving.
Step 5: Find a new habit.
Step 6: Start the new habit.

* Here is the challenge:

A trigger triggers the desire in you to perform a particular habit in a particular way.
Desire is thus the driving force behind every habit.
The routine is the action or habit itself that you perform.
The reward satisfies your desire and makes you perform and repeat an action in the first place.

Everything changes and we tend to keep doing what we have been doing. Habits. When things get tight we tend to work harder on our duty or on the problem. All kinds of techniques are supposed to make us more effective, and there is one problem: more of the same doesn’t necessarily allow for better results, despite extra power naps, extra-effective fitness sessions and the latest supplements.

Instead try this: Do less. Work smarter not harder. Plan, eliminate what is not necessary and not important, train your “relaxation muscle” by going for walks in nature regularly or learning to unwind. Learn to manage your thinking device instead of letting your thoughts manage you!

If we keep doing what we’re doing, we’re going to keep getting what we’re getting

Stephen R. Covey


Trying to do better or feel better by doing more of the same can be a useless and dangerous habit. Harder and more is not necessarily better. New solutions may require regular gaps from doing what you always have been doing. Learn to doing nothing! Learn to give yourself a real break without getting anywhere, without achieving anything. And you might face some feelings. Maybe scary!

What do you Fear?

Do the thing you fear the most, and the death of fear is certain

Mark Twain

So what do you fear most? is one of my favorite Coaching questions. Things change over time. What do you fear most? Close your eyes. Take a deep breath. Exhale long and loud. Wait for a moment of empty space inside. Then, let the answer arise.

Clarity coaching sessions are designed to help you to realise where you hold back and what you really need.

In order to be able to adjust to changing circumstances., it makes sense to change attitude towards getting out of the comfort zone and habitual thinking, feeling and reaccionó.

A Safe Environment

An environment where you can be at ease, be yourself and dare to tell the truth is nurturing good health and the creative process. We just lose too much time and precious life energy in keeping up with resistance against what is, illusions, manipulations or protections, cling to the past or escape in our mind to a future that is not here now…

One way to get to such a space is find it within yourself . Imagine enjoying being right here, right now, being yourself. People around you feel your vibe, your honesty, your love and true intentions.

The safe space and love we crave most is within ourselves

Beyond monkey mind chatter, emotional rollercoaster and beyond habitual distractions is where we find that energizing space.


Feeling peaceful within yourself is not a necessarily a given fact for many reasons. Making the path to get there can be exiting and energizing. My job is to accompany you to your way, break through habitual thinking, feeling and acting patterns and replace them with nurturing loving ones.

The Ying Yang Phenomenon

Did you ever ask yourself why our Western Culture suffers from so many diseases which many Estern Cultures don’t? Yes, here, most of us have more than enough to eat. Eastern Cultures are more tuned into spiritual aspects of life: Energy. Tao, Yoga, Chikung teaches how to feel, move and use energy. Here, we are trained to use the Yang-type energy: actively proceed your goal. There, they know about the quality and balance of both, action and relaxation, Yang and Ying. Being whole within.

Leaving the Habit of Being Yourself

Leaving the habit of being yourself is a thought-provoking book by Joe Dispenza. It refers to letting go of the image that to cling to. The image of who you think you are. Stop identifying with your conditioning, past and programs and start being yourself with all consequences.

Letting go of Unconscious Habits

Sometimes it takes leaving your habitual surroundings for some time to be able to change some deep down thinking, feeling and acting patterns that you are not really aware of. Learn to switch from the victim perspective to the “torch awareness” – a higher or wider perspective of things that enables you to allow new ways to thinking, feeling and acting.

Sometimes it takes facing your fears. Knowing that you won’t die from feeling the fear and allowing to listen. Hear the message behind the fear. It’s the most common thing, that we do anything in order to prevent feeling what we really feel, if it is uncomfortable… And exactly that fear of feeling what you feel is what keeps you stuck….


What we desire most, we find within: Love, peace and creativity. This is the basis for being able to express and share our essential gifts.

How do you get to a state of peace if you feel locked-up in difficult circumstances?

Dare to share with others

How do you get to a state of peace, if you feel locked-up in difficult circumstances? Please feel free to share your COMMENTS and pass it on to others who are still looking!

Creating an Inspiring Environment

We know that money buys only so much. You can’t buy trust and a safe environment with monetary benefits only. Nor superficial smiles and small-talk will do on the long term. People feel!

Some years back I worked with a European steel company. It was interesting to see how people worked as they worked habitually without realizing their daily loss of energy. Quite a few employees of the department suffered from stress-related and psychosomatic health problems and had gotten used to them, just like we get used to a bad smell with time. Nobody really cared.

Incredible, how old believes could maintain over the decades. People were convinced, they were more valuable for the company for knowing the system for years and years instead of daring to consider improving the system. The atmosphere in this company was seemingly friendly but not nice, not to say hostile. There was no trust, no hope, no confidence to talk the truth. It was somehow feeling cold. It is not enough to renovate the kitchen area and install a gym at work to create a safe space for change. It takes the leaders on board to create an inspiring environment for safe human interaction, openness and trust.

How can you create an environment that invites people to bring out their best, to invest their energy not just to get a paid in exchange but to deliberately serve the system with their gifts? Manipulation by inducing fear or money works only limited. Creativity can quickly be compromised by pressure and competition. What’s the golden path?

Systems versus Goals

It is belief systems, communication systems and appreciation systems that keep the treasures hidden. Systems change by changing individual parts and/or their inter-connections. People can change, communication flows can change, work style can change, attitudes can change, even values can change. With the willingness to innovate, new doors open. How do you open people for change? One way is facing the fears.

We finally realized that the cutting-costs-strategy is too limited and that people are our greatest asset.

People versus Figures

Today, learning to balance the tension-relaxation-system and the thinking-feeling-doing game may be just as important as having a consultancy change your numbers.

A Safe Environment and Quality Relationships

Financial benefit tend to be a very temporary motivator. More money doesn’t help to get up in the morning and really look forward to go to work, if there is nothing to look forward to.

Creating a healthy environment of trust takes time and honest intention. It can’t be faked. The importance of a nurturing environment in the workplace has been widely ignored. It’s not just about the color of the wallpaper and the brand of coffee in the cafeteria. It’s a culture of open communication that we miss so much, yet we’re so used to the empty phrases we exchange to maintain a certain image. In our business culture, we can have it all and are slowly finding out that the most exclusive gadgets and the best champagne only make us feel good until we are no longer distracted, sober and lucid. The good news is that energy sapping habits are easy to identify and can be changed naturally.

Phone-Consulting to kick-off Positive Cultural Change?

Is it enough to invest in Coaching over the Phone in order to change systems and cultures? I don’t think so. You can’t expect a person change their way of thinking, feeling and acting by receiving personalized information. It takes an experience to make a real change, a combination of thinking and feeling. That’s why I insist on initially working outdoors in nature to do my job as a facilitator.

Did you ever dare to investigate and look at your environment closer?
Is there room for improvement?
Are you aware what you would really like, what is really important to you at work?
Are you looking forward to go to work in the morning? What bugs you most at work?
Is your company culture safe enough to share your ideas for improvement?

What are your first ideas?

Learn how to Improvise!

Being able to improvise and spontaneously respond to a situation can be vital. In fact, if can be essential for survival!

My intention of joining Spanish improv classes was to learn a skill I can use for my professional life as a coach, model and actress: Forget about the theories, pre-planned ideas and concepts that you have in mind in order to be really present NOW and don’t just repeat yesterday’s stories that you have in petto. I also intended to face my fears: stage, public speaking, speaking in a foreign language in public without knowing what it will all be about….

Training to use your brain a different way

It has been a lot of fun to play games, laugh, fool around during warmups before class. It was also a huge challenge. We learned all kinds of “stupid” games that are not so stupid after all: they trained you to use our brain in a different way.

Improv has been reported to be a useful skill to learn for professionals who are mainly brainworkers, such as lawyers, managers, people sitting in front of a computer all day or figuring out how to sell more. Improv classes are a longterm investment in order to access your creative potential, expand your habitual thinking, overcome ideas and concepts of how we think things should be, to see how else they can be and we couldn’t even imagine that other scenario der to human box-thinking.

Improv also opens our ideas about ourselves, who we are, how we show up in the world and how we feel about ourselves and others. It is a bonding exercise, we are all different and all in the same boat. We accept each one for their uniqueness, don’t need to like or dislike traits. It’s all about playing together. THE ONLY way.

Improv improves listening skills. It is essential to understand what is going on. Even those who have a hard time to concentrate over a longer period of time what others say are naturally staying tuned, because otherwise they are lost. It’s like playing in an action movie without a script, or a metaphor for daily life: we train to be in this very moment, free from old concepts to allow the process to evolve.

A good improviser is quick on their feet, noting every detail that comes their way. They also have the whole group’s performance in mind and not just their own. You might think that quick thinking just means someone’s mind works at a fast pace, but it doesn’t. Improv trains your attention without you having to try hard: it is a playful approach. Uncomfortable at first, but soon, the team opens up and realizes the potential of this type of training: it is not about looking good. You can’t go wrong. There are a few basics, rules of the games and that’s it. It is not dangerous. It is just a game. A great way to learn new skills.

5 Benefits from Improv Training

Improv trains flexibility. Studies have shown that improvisation shuts down the part of the brain involved in self-censoring. Improv trains to not second-guess yourself and contribute ideas that might help to fix whatever “problem” you’re experiencing.

Trust and support Team-members

You don’t need to like other team-members. In improv you learn how to accept them as they are without judging and work with their contribution in a constructive way.
How liberating! Magical potential right there!

Listening Skills are trained at improv classes like nowhere else! Since no-one knows what will be the outcome of the whole thing, everybody is naturally super-present and attentive. You need to know what is going on right now, in order to respond. Listening skills help to be empathetic, direct projects in the right direction, allocate resources, detect possible burnout and handle problems before they happen.

Effective communication for better problem solving is a skill that you will train at improv. You learn to communicate your needs and ideas right there in the moment. The others can’t read your mind. You need to communicate in order for the show to go on. And you are part of it. Every contribution counts.

Non-judgement and respect to each and every member of the team is another bonus of improv training. Non-judgemental behaviour is a way of accepting people with whom we disagree. Get over prejudice and appreciate the uniqueness of someone you might have called an idiot before. Every member puts their unique spices in the soup and that’s what makes it deliciously successful. It is the contrast, conflicts, co-creating and managing the ups and downs of the journey together that makes improv a success. It’s not about one person looking good. It’s about everybody contributing and helping the groups to create the best they can together. Think WE. Just like in real life.

Imaging a start-up that uses improv tools. Or a rusty department in desperate need of innovation: if every team member had the guts and the safe environment to show up fearlessly and even what used to be called a failure is a contribution to figure out how we can improve together!

Improv training for employees is an energizing activity. Ideally, provided as an incentive, not an obligation for those who are interested in personal growth. Improv training is a chance to grow beyond personal limitations as a group. Humans are set up to be afraid of change. Improv helps us change our limiting setup constructively and playfully. Together.

Don’t change your Self!

Sounds obvious, yet many don’t seem to get it:

“YOU CAN’T SEPARATE THE HEAD FROM THE BODY”. I heard myself say during walks in nature with Coaching clients. Sounds ridiculous. Of cause you can cut of the head from the body. But people don’t seem to be aware of physical laws, that exist beyond biology: Every quality of thought has a quality of physical response in the body. Physics. Energy, waves and frequencies.

YOU CAN’T SEPARATE THE WORLD YOU SEE FROM THE LENSES YOU LOOK THROUGH, or PROGRAMS we run automatically, according to genes, past social conditioning and experiences. Normal.

I wrote 3 books now, out of the urge to share what I had learned. In one of them I share my own story and how I (kind of logically) managed to create a false, limiting image of myself, according to the information available at the time. The idea was, that readers can check out their own stories, realize that their idea of themselves, others and the world is also based on many assumptions, probably lies (often used hoping to protect others) and misconceptions.

Obviously, it is not that easy to see your own blind spots. “Why am I acting the way I am, what is wrong with me”, I hear people say.

“How can I make sure to see my blindspots?

Life throws situations towards us and we react in a certain way or we consciously respond. The thinking mind tries to control the situation to keep us safe – that’s the idea. But we stay trapped in unconscious behavior (thinking, feeling and reactive habits), unfree and kind of reproduce our own problems. To switch from reacting unconsciously to responding consciously is work. It takes consciously FEELING what you feel and being ok with it. It most probably takes feeling uncomfortable, an indicator that you are leaving your so-called “comfort zone ” (which kept you trapped) and being ok with this state of discomfort. Like a growth pain, it hurts to grow beyond a limitation, like a sore muscle, probably worse.

Unfortunately, writing books doesn’t mean that I know and know how to apply it all at all! The more I know the more I realize how little I know. And that helps to accept that things don’t go the way you want, no matter how “hard” you try or how “good” you are. Each major “set back” turns out to be a major “set free”. Forgiveness is part of the lesson. Forgiving doesn’t mean to be ok with what was not ok. It means to let it go.

What about you? Does that ring a bell?

DO NOT TRY TO CHANGE YOURSELF! Your nature is unique. You are the way you are for a reason. And even if you think it was an accident, haha, there is no doubt that you are unique. What is not so unique is the fact that you too, probably copied what you saw and do or (insist not to do under no circumstances) what you were told as a small child, just like everyone else. This is how we carry on old memories and habits from generation to generation collectively, no matter in which culture you grow up. Plus, we are convinced that we “function” solely on the basis of genes just like our ancestors. An excuse to change habits?

We CAN change the way we think, feel and act when this is no longer helpful, if we DECIDE to do so, if we WANT to do so. We just need a good enough reason to motivate for the effort to go through the pain of letting go what we thought would keep us safe. Motivation such as some kind of suffering, major curiosity what else is possible or a probing unmet need to express your Self in the world.

Don’t follow me! ***
Follow your SELF your inner voice, that which you can only listen to, when the mind is silent
without thinking
without distraction
without obnubilating or clouding with substances

Silence is required to hear or feel intuition – what is really going on, without assumptions – the energy of the truth.

My job is to inspire you to transcend the IDEA of identifying with those programs that run your system. How can you transcend that which is mostly unconscious?


CHANGE HABITS! Start with the “small stuff”, clear out useless habits that keep you from freeing yourself…. You know what I mean…. NO, it may not be easy but it is simple. Life sends “invitations” in form of crisis, pains or suffering. Learning opportunities. Openings for new possibilities. Changes to let go of the old program and dare to look deeper, beyond that which you know. Possibly scary stuff. Who wants to accept discomfort and “ugly” feelings? Well, e.g. those who are tired of the mouse wheel syndrome. Those who are more curious than afraid. Those who are willing to bring in the work it takes to create a new way of doing what you do. Those who are willing to face their (addictive?) patterns and what they are really looking for.

The POWER OF EACH AND EVERYBODY is that we can reflect on ourselves and CHANGE OUR OWN THOUGHTWARE, feelings and actions. It takes awareness to do so.

No need to become a yogini, or start a new religion. The awareness muscle needs some form of ritual though… Awareness is not the same as thinking. Practices such as Meditation, Yoga, Tai Chi, Qi Gong or Walking Meditation are helpful. There are many ways. Everybody makes their own way.

You can choose the ripples you create

We are not machines. We are sentient beings.
We can change the world by purifying our own lenses, our own thoughts, feelings and actions, the way we respond to the world, the quality of ripples we create. No longer denying parts of ourselves. No longer hiding in addictive behavior hoping we cane space the feelings that keep us trapped. No longer copying what is not ours, hoping this would give us what we want most….

What makes YOU get out of bed in the morning?

What makes you get out of bed in the morning is one of those dangerous coaching questions. It is easy to forget what is really important.

Heck, looking and feeling closer, you may find some discrepancies that you didn’t allow yourself to notice before. Are you getting out of bed for the right reasons? What are the right reasons, really?

Survival comes first, definitely. Work, money, stability, security, paying the bills….

Love and belonging is important. How we relate to ourselves and others. Hm, I make a the relationship to yourself a point. Why? Because it doesn’t go without saying. It wants to be appreciated as well. How can you expect respect, love and understanding if you don’t respect, love and comprehend yourself?

Live at your Best – bring the best version of yourself to the world. But what is that? Finding out ours strengths and weaknesses and working hard on them? Finding out our passion and trying to make it fit into the Maslow’s hierachy of needs???

We need a safe base.
Expanding the base without growing upwards can lead to a financially rich, poor existence.

There are endless possibilities to survive, thrive, be content and love life more than you fear it.
Function in the world.
Feel good about yourself.

Coaches tend to ask: what do you really want? I like to ask: What do your really need?

What makes YOU get out of bed in the morning?
