Stop Kidding Yourself!

Recently I have had to eat a huge slice of humble pie! Which is always a good thing lol! Because it is what will take you faster to the next level of growth and success. We can get very good at hiding from ourselves until life pulls back the sheets or shines a huge spot light on our zits!  In my case I created this AMAZING mastermind group of Awesome and powerful woman. We meet once a month and give each other powerful life changing and life affirming feedback on life, business, relationships and personal development issues.

We raise each other up. We give truck loads of love and support and praise. We also give honest and constructive feedback which sometimes hits a nerve, because maybe its something we don't want to look at! Or its something we don't want to deal These are the very things that will make us grow fast, and allow us to shed believes or ideas that no longer serve us in the creation of our dreams and aspirations. The things we shy away from, the shame, the guilt, the embarrassment that we don't want others to know we feel...that we don't even want to reveal to ourselves.

Making Mistakes
Its okay to make mistakes, to fall down or to look clumsy, or silly, or even a little stupid to those watching from the comfort zone. Thats what could happen when you are going after your real dreams. Dream building, seeking and achieving is not for the faint hearted! You need to be brave, you need to be determined and most of all you need to be clear, about the dream and the why?! What would you need to do right now to go after your deepest and most scary but  most honest dreams. How uncomfortable (for a while) do you think you might have to feel to truly breakthrough the voices in your head, that tell you that dreams too big, you are not good enough, you will never achieve that, why not just forget the whole thing and just stay and hide under the sheets?  

Comfortable Out of The Comfort Zone
Being comfortable out of the comfort zone is a powerful place to live from, and can lead to big gains.  Society does not teach you this. You are easier to control when you are scared and fearful of your own shadow. Fear is one of the main energies we need to master and that is constantly thrown in our faces in the media. Stop reading the news paper or watching the news everyday. Instead spend that time educating yourself on positive, happier living by listening to recordings, watching videos or meditating, writing in your journal, dreaming and acting upon those dreams.

Many people end up giving up, because they don't have the support of other like minded people. People who are also living out of their comfort zone and aspiring to live each day with as much honesty and self respect to their fullest potential. At the end whatever you may hope for in the future, can only be created by what you are doing right now. What makes me happy is knowing that however things may turnout in the future, I am living, loving and laughing now, and my heart is overflowing with gratitude for the blessed life I have had and I am having. I endeavour  to bring the best me to the table each day.  Meditation allows you connect to the part of you that is free from all feelings of limitation and fear. Its not an escape from reality, but rather an awakening to the truth. We are not just victims of our circumstance, we are co creating by what we choice to belief, feel, think and do.

People can make or break us???

The trippy summer is slowly winding to a close, and soon we will have to welcome the Autumn. Its time to take stock of all the lessons learned. Due to an intense renovation project on our new apartment, I found myself homeless. Its during such times that you realise the difference between people you know and real friends. It made me truly cherish and feel happy to know some awesome and amazing people.

I got to realise that its all about sharing wonderful moments with people that inspire you, lift you up, tell you your awesome (when you need reminding) and know how to laugh a lot ..... and cry too, if thats what is need! People are at the centre of all my dreams and goals, because really without great relations, what can we really achieve?

In every aspect of our lives the difference between success and failure will depend on the quality of our relations, the quality of the people we say yes to in business and private life. People can be the reason that you don't sleep well at night and they can also be the reason that you don't want to wake up in the morning  ;-))) I am not saying our destiny lies in other people hands, but rather in our ability to nurture and cultivate extraordinary relationships, that make us access our true greatness.

When we were young we knew how to fill each others hearts with delight. We were not afraid to love deeply and with great enthusiasm and purity. Our happiness to be together knew no limits or boundaries. If we fought we knew how to quickly kiss and make up! Can we find again that inner child who's wisdom was simple yet powerful and beautiful.

Lets stop to take stock of what we truly want and deserve from our relationships, and lets be brave enough to lead by example. Take this end of summer as a new beginning. People matter and its time to stop ignoring this fact, and work seriously on your relationships, they are the key to your success in every area of your life!

Kick in The Gut, Ouch!

Kick in the gut, ouch!
Do you know this experience? Not literally I hope! The experience when something weird/uncomfortable  happens with someone, or some people, and you just were not expecting it! Some of these situations, that happen to us, looking back we can say, yep I am not so surprised, I saw that one coming. But then there are those situations that just take you by surprise and in doing so hit bellow the belt! Leaving you feeling more than a little bamboozled 

What Happened?

I recently received one of these situations, one of my clients told me what he really thought about me! I had only good memories of all our encounters together and I had seen this person go from strength to strength transforming themselves and their reality. So I was not really prepared for some of his comments which I received in an SMS. Has this ever happened to you? That feeling of being blindsided and surprised? Your expectations of that person were totally somewhere else.....

What did I do?
I called my friends, I asked for help, I reached out and exposed myself, my anger, my hurt, my embarrassment, my shame, my vulnerability, my bamboozlement!! I dived into all of these with full gusto and just allowed the range of emotions to rage like a fire in me and then burnout, until even the coals stopped glowing and only the ashes of my ego remained. What also remained was the knowledge that this is probably not the last time life will throw me a fast ball I was just not prepared for, but for the next one I will just be just that little stronger, just that little bit wiser and just that little bit less fragile.

Ask for Help - Do not Be Too Proud 
I am surrounding myself with amazing people! I am more and more amazed at the gifts, knowledge and  the blessings these people are offering to enrich my daily life. Its like having a net that catches you when you fall from a tight rope! Some moments in life can feel like a tight rope walk high up in the clouds ;-)) Because even my worst moments are still blessed ones compared to millions of people in this world! Surround yourself with people that expand you, love you, adore you, praise, hear you and firmly challenge you to be the best version of yourself you can be. People who shine and want you to shine, people who work hard and make you raise your game. People who know how to laugh  and have fun, no matter whats going on, because they are committed to live the moment and be grateful in it.

The Lessons learned are priceless

The thing is that what these situations reveal about us is fascinating. We get to stretch our spiritual  and emotional muscles and we are forced to grow up! I wanted to strike back, I wanted to be big enough to  just ignore it, I wanted to..I wanted to..I wanted to scream, and finally I just needed to cry. I have learned to stop being so protective about negative criticism, in doing so we give power to those words and moving forward becomes difficult, moving to forgiveness and compassion becomes challenging. What is the worst thing anyone could say to you? Imagine it has been said. You will still live, you will still be, you will still love and give. You will still shine and laugh. Practice being unstoppable, by having nothing to prove, nothing to protect, nothing to hide, nothing to defend! Thanks Lisa Nichols from motivating the masses for these wonderful empowering pearls of wisdom.  

Escape into the beauty of Switzerland and find your inner beauty, your inner light. The part of you that is limitless potential and infinite love and compassion. Time to just be and let go of all of it!

Hot Summer Dreams!


What plans do you have for this summer? What dreams do you want to manifest and how can you go about making those dreams into reality? These days manifestation guru's all talk about the importance of action, action, action! Its the key ingredient to becoming a  manifestation queen or king. Here are three helpful things to consider when you are ready to become an epic dream maker.

1. Get Rid of Your Limitations  

Write it down on paper. When you write with a pen on paper you activate the creative part of your brain. Writing is a powerful tool that we must never replace with digital technology. Writing gets you in touch with your imagination and allows you to let go and get out of the box. What about thinking big? Be aware that the best way to train yourself to becoming an epic dream maker is by setting yourself up to win.

This does not mean don't think big, It just means break the big dream into bitesize chunks and start chewing on that first bite. I have the big dream of wanting to support many many people globally to find their inner strength, peace and clarity.  I would love to take the power of meditation into new  places it may not have gone yet. Like what about taking meditation into an african slum and seeing what happens when we unlock inner peace in individuals, in a place where even the most basic human comforts are not available?

In our limitations we sometimes underestimate the potential transformative effect, of empowering human beings with this kind of powerful inner wisdom. So what are the next steps I need to take, that will  take me in the direction of accomplishing my big dream? I already have a plan for this summer and know exactly what I would like to have done by the end of the summer. My plan is totally doable, therefore failure is not an option. I have set myself up to win and being a winner keeps your spirits and passion high. Set your goals in such a way that you think, I am a winner! 

2. Read it, Repeat it and Edit it

Its important to keep polishing the dream, revising it, revisiting it and redefining it.  Get it down to a one liner. The more you think about it, the more real it becomes and thats when the real magic starts happening. Don't get stuck in the how. How am I going to accomplish this? rather stay on the why? Why do you want this, why are you doing this?  why does this matter to you. The why is your fuel. When you keep connected to the why you will never run out of passion and determination.

My why is clear. I LOVE helping people find inner peace. There is nothing more beautiful in this world to me than seeing people get empowered. When they discover their inner light and beauty they transform themselves and in doing so they bring more light, love, happiness and peace into the world. I can wake up to this why and feel inspired, regardless of where on the journey I am, or how big the challenge seems at times. My why makes every part of the journey fulfilling.

3. Cultivate a Determination Mindset

Determination is a quality you want to nurture in order to become a powerful dream maker. Think of the process of making a baby. It needs time for the baby to grow in the mothers belly. Your thoughts need time to manifest into the real world. Don't be too quick to give up and also don't keep changing your mind. Take time to get really clear, by finding out who you really are in the core. Create dreams that make you shine, feel good and that create deep contentment in your life. 

However don't be afraid to fail and try different things in order to get to that core, just make sure you give each thing a real and sincere effort once you start it. Even when you do find that thing that you love and want, thats just the beginning of the journey and not the end. The work never ends on the journey of self growth, the good thing is it all does get easier. Meaning that with each passing moment you are getting stronger, wiser and more in balance.

Be Free Enough to Dance Dance Dance!


I have recently had a huge ah ha moment and realised that my body loves to dance! I need to dance almost as much as I need to breathe ;-)! I have been demanding yoga, jogging and other stuff from my body, when really all I needed to do was dance!

I will of course continue with yoga too as I think its unbeatable in keeping you flexible and strong. But the jogging will now be dance. I still love to be outside in nature, sucking in fresh air and beautiful sights, so look out for me dancing in the street.

Where I live, here is Switzerland, randomly dancing in the street is not an easy thing to do. You need to be courageous to just dance in broad day light! Why is this? Well the only people not following the rules of behaviour expected from them are either mad or about to go mad ;-))) Come to think of it, following the rules is a strong pull in most cultures. Some rules really need to be broken, and street dancing on your own is one of those rules! Don't you think?

Dancing like singing or painting is a powerful art form. Art allows us to be creative and go beyond the limits of the mind. beyond thinking you tap into a part of you that is pure playfulness and power. The way most people "think" leads them to feelings of limitation or shyness that is crippling and often debilitating.


Its important to never stop playing, thinking out of the box and expanding yourself beyond your comfort zone. The result is that you give other people permission to shine when you allow yourself to shine.

Some people think they can't dance, but for me dancing belongs to us all, it is a natural drug that lifts the spirit. Music brings dance into the body, and even if you are not going to be the next Michael Jackson music speaks to your body. And if you listen to your body you will feel the music in it. Let that music in your body be expressed as movement and you become living art.

The next time I think oh I should not dance here, its not appropriate! I am going to crank up the volume on my headset, close my eyes, and let my body start a conversation with the music. A conversation that is electric, sensual, light, therapeutic and frankly liberating on every single level of ones being and beyond! Because seriously when was the last time a happy dancer pissed you off? And if that has happened to you recently you might surely need to stop, breathe, smile for no reason and chillax BIG time ;-))))

Oh, what a day – oh, what a Detox Day

Last weekend we had the ultimate Kick-Start into Spring: our Body and Mind Detox Day 2015!

Together with my lovely Workshop Partner, Geneviève Singh, a Dipl. Craniosacral Therapist and Pilates Instructor, we lifted everybody's vibe and energy and kicked out the Detox. Sadly, you were not there. But to show you, what you’ve missed, here are some pictures for you. So see you on our next workshop, May 10th when it’s all about joy and dance with the Brasilian Dance Master Gisela and your favourite Meditation Master Mahima:

Do you have relationship blues?

    Happy Relationships Require Your Attention

The number 8 represents infinity. Here are eight powerful tools to work with, when looking to bond deeper and form infinity friendships and heart connections that will survive the test of time and most importantly remain vibrant in the now. Remember that it takes two to tango so make sure to follow your intuition and select great people who are open minded and ready to explore personal development.

Only through an open heart can love flow into you, through you and out of you. Love, it self never hurts, it is a positive force for good, only the egos pride can be bruised. Never close your heart, especially when you feel hurt. An open heart is invincible and bullet proof, because It holds on to nothing and leads the owner of that open heart into a love that has no limit and can never be given and taken away because its who you are in the core.

The world will only love you as much as you love yourself. Self-appreciation and respect is an essential ingredient in the pursuit of powerful and good relationships. Make peace with who you are right now, this gives you the power to accept others and deal better with their imperfections. Self loathing is not an attractive quality. When you have confidence in yourself you give other people permission to have confidence in you.

Pure love is not jealous or insecure, it sees the essence of the other person, the goodness and soul, beyond the imperfections
When love hurts it is because somewhere the ego go involved. Pure love never hurts. It is healing, soothing, uplifting inspiring and empowering. So whenever you are in pain in a relationship, it's because you stepped away from pure love and stepped into the limitation of ego love. Ego love is never happy; it feels empty, frustrated, uninspiring and exhausting.

Maintain deep eye contact, stop whatever you are doing and really listen and feel your partner. If you really want to resolve conflicts with anyone, that’s what you will have to do. Most of us can’t hear or connect, because we are in the past or the future. Defending our actions and ourselves! Practice being fully present and available to people, be in the now. Its feels like a love shower when someone is fully present with you.
Know your strengths, know your weaknesses. Own your part in any conflict. Own your happiness, sadness, anger and how you feel. See how what you feel, think and do has a powerful effect  and influence on the world around you. Nothing will fuel an argument more than being defensive instead of considering apologizing and being brave enough to admit your mistakes and limitations.
Complimenting your people on a daily basis will do wonders for a happy bond. People like to feel seen and appreciated. People respond well to vulnerability, so please don’t be afraid to show vulnerability, express your truth, be authentic, take risks and be honest. Your mask is only skin deep, people can feel authenticity and integrity. These two things can only be accessed through real vulnerability. You are more powerful in your vulnerability, than when you are out of it! Try it and prepare to be amazed…

Real forgiveness is not selective. I will forgive this but not that, ultimately if you are to survive and blossom in relationships, you will have to become a master at forgiving. Forgiving yourself for not reacting, as you would have liked to, forgiving people for hurting you, forgiving yourself for getting hurt and so on and on and on, its never ending! It’s the ultimate art of letting go of everything and the key to real freedom and peace of mind.
We often forget to be playful and lighthearted with each other. Growing up does not have to mean growing stern and serious. We can’t laugh at ourselves and god forbid if anyone else is laughing at us! If you are not laughing everyday with your partner/ colleagues and friends you need to seriously consider how you can start doing that. Real deep belly laughter with each other is the best icebreaker and connects you to your enjoyment of each other. Its one of the most powerful tools in this lineup and needs to be taken seriously!! ;-)))
