The Integrity Cleanse

Mindfulness & Self-Compassion

Good morning beautiful people,

I hope that you are safe and healthy, wherever you are in the world. Some of us are coming out of lockdown, like in the UK, whilst others are not seeing the end of the tunnel, like in the rest of Europe.

Anyways, this is a new reality we are forced to work with, and it’s always a better idea to stay present, than to think this will not end. Because it always does.

This week I wanted to share with you the magic in hearing Harvard professor, coach and author Martha Beck, talk to Gwyneth Paltrow on the Goop podcast about the Integrity Cleanse (link below). It’s probably not news to you that owning our word and living in integrity makes us sleep well at night.

As if it’s a constant course correction or readjustment as soon as we feel something is off. A word, an action, a way of living, we know when it is costing us instead of bringing us up.

On this note, I would like to invite you to take a deep inhale, feeling the air moving through your nostrils and your feet touching the ground. What if our experience were a reflection of how we feel within? What if with our exhale, we could visualise all of our blockages dissolving and stepping into greater alignment?

Wishing thinking I hear you say, but no. When there is a will, there is clearly a way, and Life never fails to show us the way.

May we all be healthy
May we all be happy.

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.

Good morning beautiful people, I hope that you are all safe and healthy, wherever you are in the world. I dare say “the world”, because this newsletter does go out to people throughout the globe, some who might have bought an evil eye jewellery, others who have joined a guided mediation or purchased my book. You might also happen to be reading this because we crossed paths and started a conversation ( the cheaper version:).
