Mid January is when most people have gone back to work and to their routines, and they have either forgotten about their resolutions or they are struggling to keep them alive.

So I am reaching out just to check in with you - where are you at today?!

We have the tendency to resolve things in terms of achievements, we focus on what we don’t want, we “wish”, we “hope”, we “try”. In my practice, we develop a conscious and grounded way of articulating and envisioning what our heart desires and where our soul wants to experience. “What am I really grateful for in 2013? What did I learn? Who did I become? And moving into 2014 from a place of “Who do I want to be?”

Walk, sleep, cook with these questions in your mind. Soon, answers will come to you.  There is a fundamental practice when it comes to personal transformation. We can describe it in three simple steps:

1. Surrender to what is in the moment. Whatever you resist, persists. Open up and learn from that situation, and it will go away. Allow yourself to fall back into old patterns for a moment, allow yourself not to be perfect (yay!) and ask yourself: why am I doing this again in the same old way?

2. Show Up. Keep going in the direction that feels right to you. It takes one step at a time. It is you who gets you where you want to go.

3. Find a true mirror. Look at yourself inside (in meditation, taking a bath or walking in nature) and outside (relationships, tasks, environment, clothing). Whatever is easier for you. One is the reflection of the other : as without, so within.

Most importantly, give yourself time. There are no quick fixes or easy answers. Just awareness. And even more awareness, because we are always evolving, always changing. We are never there, but on our way. So be patient, be yourself, and take one step at a time.
Let me hold the mirror for you : the Discovery Session is a one to one session where together we explore where you are, we clarify your needs and we outline a path. I’ll be waiting for you with a delicious tea. Contact me This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Today can be a very important day, when you take one more step on your path of transformation.

May you walk in beauty and grace.
