Good morning beautiful people,

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

Doctor Nicole Le Pera, a conventional psychologist turned holistic psychologist, and followed by more than three million people on Instagram, is the inspiration behind self healers, believing that true change comes from meeting ourselves daily, doing the work, sitting in meditation, looking after our childhood wounds and reparenting ourselves by facing every part of our being with fierce love and acceptance.

Yes, it ain’t easy when we have such a strong critique (ego) who reside within ourselves, yet, when there is a will, there is a way. And the way of the holistic psychologist seems to be spot on every time. For instance, our ego voice would say: I have made a mistake whilst our higher self would say: there was something I needed to learn here.

Another example is when our ego says: life is unfair and our higher self says instead: life gives me exactly what I need to evolve and grow.

Again, easier said than done but we truly have a choice to start to doing the sometimes strenuous work to wake up to our higher self, or show up instead as a wounded child dressed as an adult and reacting to most things with ego.

On this note, I would like to invite you to take a pause and take a deep breath. How about feeling your feet on the ground, do you take the time to do that lately? How about feeling the air moving though your nostrils and being present to what is? When you feel ready, let’s breath out altogether, and step into the power of the self healer.

It’s available inside each and every one of us but it takes daily centering, grounding and checking in.

Wouldn’t the world be so much easier to live in if we all did the work and would greet each other’s higher selves?

In the meantime, I will resume daily morning meditations in a week, and until then, dont hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or comments, I love reading them.

With love and deep respect.

Vanessa

On Activism and Stepping Up

Good morning beautiful people, I hope that you are safe and healthy, wherever you are in the world. This week went by again, faster than the speed of light, and I feel grateful for your comments regarding my first interview. It was good, but thankfully there is a lot of room for improvement. Today, I get to share my conversation with the amazing Mimi Bekhechi, Vice President of PETA ( people for the ethical treatment of animals). This is the organisation that made a lot of noise in the 90’s with top models posing naked saying “we‘d rather be naked than wear fur.”

Beyond Norms

Beyond Norms

Good morning beautiful people, I hope that you are safe and healthy, wherever you are in the world. Last week, I said that it doesn’t have to be perfect to get started, so I got started and my podcast, Beyond Norms, is now available on Spotify ( I am waiting for Apple to approve too). Why such a name? Because I took an anthropology class for my baccalaureate when I was sixteen years old, and realised that there were different ways to live life, that beliefs were always questionable, especially if they didn’t give us joy.
