Good morning beautiful people,

I hope that you are safe and healthy, wherever you are in the world.

Some of you might have taken a summer break from everyday life, some not or not yet. Wherever you are at, all I will share today is that as our bodies start slowing down, the mind struggles to adjust and keeps looking for the flaws, for what to worry about and control so that we can be kept “safe”. But what if all this was simply a way to disconnect from what is and the present moment? What if there was nothing to worry about?

On this note, I will invite you to step into the present moment, feeling your feet on the ground. As you feel your Monday calming down, how about breathing out anything and everything you no longer need.

As we venture into the depth of summer, my wish for us all is that we manage to be present, and step fully into what is, instead of what isn’t.

May we be healthy
May we be happy
May we be present

With love and deep respect

Vanessa

The Power of our Thoughts

Good morning beautiful people, I hope that you are safe and healthy, wherever you are in the world. As we embark on this new year, why not question the validity of our thoughts. Did you ever take the time to write down a list of your top ten recurring thoughts? Are they about yourself? Others? The world? Can you absolutely be sure that they are true? As author and spiritual teacher Byron Katie says about it in The Work:

The Story with Change

The Story with Change

Good morning beautiful people, I hope that you are safe and healthy, wherever you are in the world. Today, I would like to talk about change, an interesting topic in a time of pandemic. Some say change is inevitable; the only constant in the world; bound to happen. Others say that change is an internal affair; that it happens when we change the way we look at things, then the things we look at finally change.

The Power of Love

The Power of Love

Good morning beautiful people, I hope that you are safe and healthy, looking after your mind and body, wherever you are in the world. I have been absent for a few weeks, and what has consistently been coming up, is how to turn fear into love. Sounds a little cliche, but nothing equates neutralising the stories we tell ourselves. I am talking about the stories we buy into that cause us harm (and likely hurt others too). It doesn’t mean letting go of our boundaries, but it means getting closer to what we truly need.
