Holistic Wellness & Creativity
In a blink of an eye, our known way of living came to a sudden stop. Many of us were paralyzed by the fear and the uncertainty of it all. Many of us were called to step up and be a beacon of light for those in need. No matter what our initial response was to the changed atmosphere, it required us all to pull on extra resources. It’s probably safe to say that we are over the initial shock. However, the shock comes in waves, and we are now experiencing the after-effects.
You might already have a few useful tools in your toolbox, that support you in building the life you love. However, acquiring new creative tools will allow you to be more productive or even speed up the building process.
They woke up this morning with a heavy, wrenching feeling in their heart. It was tangible how a thought from yesterday started to spread in their whole body and tried to take over the precious dreams. The dreams that they were carefully nurturing with love, the dreams that were the passport to freedom, and to the life they would love.
I’m holding a full-day immersion in vision boards. This is a wonderful coaching experience for those who are ready to tune into their dreams, see and define what they love, what kind of life they would love to live, and to make the first step toward that life.

Only two days left until we dive into the 7-day Visual Journaling Adventure. I held the very first Facebook Live Video session on Friday in the closed Facebook Group where we will meet. There were some interesting glitches (the image was rotated 90 degrees) but...
Quite some time ago one of the cashiers at the local co-op asked me, “How is life treating you?” I was surprised by receiving such interestingly phrased question.

I have contemplated on his question quite often ever since and came to the following understanding:
Have you ever done something that you didn’t want to because you couldn’t say no?
I have. Many times. I felt that I was forced to do things that I didn’t agree with. I felt that I didn’t have the courage to say no, and I had to comply no matter what. I was afraid of the consequences of saying no: punishment, rejection and not being loved. As physical symptoms, tightness, short of breath, pain, and heaviness were attached to that fear. The debilitating feeling of not having choices, and being trapped was my everyday company, until I said, “Enough.”
I spent last Friday’s Intuitive Painting time in an intimate setting. Susanna was surprised when she found out that she was the only participant. A two-hour Intuitive Painting with exclusive guidance, attention, and love. What a gift! Intuitive Painting is a one-of-a-kind experience. If you ever decide to give this unique class a go, I will welcome you with an open heart. ღ
