Expectations

This is the thing that makes our life soooo hard! Truly.

In a way or another we expect.

We expect because we believe in something.

We expect because we fear other people’s judgement.

We expect because we have had a lot of experiences.

Again, the relationships we have, the reality we experiment, it all reflects what we think. The thoughts we have.

Others are the mirror to our own heart.

Events are here to show you what you think of yourself.

How you react, how you feel is based on what you think, what value you hold dear, what story you keep writing.

Therapists, psychologists, counsellors they are here to give you a hand.

Healers, holistic practitioners, psychics, they are here to give you a hand.

Coaches, mentors, gurus, they are here to give you a hand.

So many people are offering their advices, their knowledge, their wisdom;

through books, youtube videos, coaching, training, sessions, workshops, posts, artworks, and more.

Open your mind to the possibility that you can choose.

Open your mind to the possibility that you can have the perfect opportunity for you to grow.

Open your mind to the possibility that everything is happening in your favour.

Because it is.

You are learning.

You are evolving.

That’s what we can expect for sure from life 😉

The perks of being unwell

I believe I already wrote about it but it still amazes me so here I come again.

I’ve had an amazing week last week when my dad came to visit. We used to be like dogs and cats and always (lovingly) arguing with each other. It got to the point where I became tired of it. I just wanted something else and nothing I could tell my dad seemed to change anything. Most probably because I kept telling him all the wrong things he was doing and how I was so unlike him.

Recently we shifted and changed that story.

I keep being annoyed at him and telling him when he’s not doing something right #virgomode but I don’t cling onto it. And it changes everything. I can laugh at my overcontrolling self. I can laugh when he is mocking me. He sees when I am right, and because a father/daugther love can’t be broken he keeps accepting my ever growing changing self and I accept that he is not indeed the perfect dad I wanted him to be and it’s perfectly fine as it is.

That being said, I managed to catch a cold when he was visiting and I did my best to take care of myself and rest to avoid being too sick so I guess I just avoided the worst.

I shared on Instagram in my stories about my love/hate relationship with sickness. I love it because it helps me ground myself , rest, and focus on what’s really important. I hate it because it doesn’t feel good at all, I have to slow down way too much and everything becomes unbearable.

Talking about mild sickness here like a cold, sore throat etc..

In those moment, I always reach a point where I get to decide whether or not my life is good.

And every time. Every single time. I always finally decide that Yes, my life is indeed very good.

It’s a shame I have to wait to be sick to feel this truth so intensively. I can feel it every other day too, but the truth of it when I am unwell is different, it makes me feel different. I just see the world with different (very tired?) eyes.

Both stories to say that indeed feeling good, being happy, having a good life is a choice we make every second.

It’s not always easy and sometimes the only thing that feels like feeling good is dwelling on things forever and that’s ok.

There will be a time when you feel like you’re ready to get over it.

The more you become aware of those sensations and feelings. The more you practice consciously choosing. The more you will be able to choose different sooner.

That’s it.

Choose now, or later, it’s all good.

The story is yours.

Another meaning

Not long ago I had an epiphany.

I really started to feel what it means to let go of something consciously.

You are not holding it back trying to forget about it. You are not avoiding the feeling. You are not dwelling on it either. It’s something else.

So much has been written about it already but again you have to see (and feel) for yourself to really get it.

How to hijack it? How to learn it already? How to reach that supposed next level?

It seems like we are always in need of progressing, evolving (which is great) at hyperspeed (which is great too). But what if trying too hard and constantly looking for more or faster becomes a flaw? What if the process itself of becoming ourselves, grounding ourselves, living better leads us to more stress instead of making our life easier?

Feeling good and happy is what most of us are looking for isn’t it?

How do we not forget that in our search for embodying so much goodness?

Answer lies most likely in the present moment. Again.

Breathe in.

Breathe out.

Be present.

Be here,

Everything you are looking for is already here.

Everything you long for is already here.

Look at your goals and dreams and thank them for lighting your path and giving your directions.

Thank yourself, your body, your mind and your heart for reminding you of what is important at each moment.

The now. Just the Now.

Our life is a succession of Now.

Aim for a future.

Strengthen your arm.

And Fire away trusting that Now is exactly what you need.

You do not have to do anything else but living the Now.

You only have to make a decision Now. To smile Now. To feel good Now.

Build a happy life by feeling good Now. It’s the only way to look back and see the succession of Happy Nows.

So the answer is in you.

Let go not because you want to let go (which you want of course but your intention isn’t there) but because it’s no longer a part of you. It is obvious to you that you do not need it anymore.

How to get there????

Find this mushin place, this no mind place.

Find it in meditation. Find it in breathing. Find it in mindful moment. Find it in happy moment. Find it in sad moment. Find it outside. Find it inside. Find it exercising. Find it cooking. Find it falling asleep. Find it waking up.

Find your innner peace. Feel it. Find it as many times as you need and want.

Make a habit of being in this no mind state.

Only then can you feel and see things as they are. Just things.

Only then can you detach yourself from your emotional reaction.

Only then can you decide in peace.

Only then can you build a serene life.

One moment at a time <3

Balance in everything

Morning thoughts:

The hardest thing isn’t to keep your balance. The hardest thing is to know where your balance is.

And to find out you have to try.

You may know the theory and heard of all made recipes before but you won’t know until you try it.

You have to try and fail.

Try, feel it and fail.

Try, know where to look at and fail.

Try and just fail again.

Try and keep your balance for longer.

Try again.

Lose it and find it again. Keep it and then loose it.

Losing your balance isn’t a shame.

It’s actually part of balancing.

The only thing that makes a difference is that when you’re really good at being balanced, you don’t let yourself lose your balance for too long, you are able to catch yourself in time and get back to it instantly.

So, keep seeking for your balance. Keep trying. And know that with every fail you come a little closer to your goal.

You will get to know your unbalance so well so you can choose not to get there.

Balance in everything <3

Uniqueness

One of the thing that makes us start our self discovery journey is the eagerness to find our purpose. I have been pondering it.

Finding our purpose means more than that.

It means finding who we are, Finding what makes us unique. Finding out why we were born. Why did we have to be born if so many others are already doing and being what we do and are? What makes us special? What do we do better than others? What can make us happy? How can we help others? How can we Be more? Who are we supposed to become? What are we supposed to do? What is our place and role in the grand scheme of Life?

See, so many unanswered questions.

I am wondering which ones you already asked yourself, which ones are resonating with you, which ones you never thought of but now that I mention it…

And which ones I haven’t think of yet.

My recent questioning has been around our uniqueness. Or to put it simply, my uniqueness. Haha. I always ask those question to myself and try to answer them for myself first. Sometimes I get hubby involved, or my mum, they’re my two favourite people with whom I can philosophize.

I have no problems holding different, even opposite truths in my mind at the same time. I just need to find the logic that connects them. I genuinely can’t relax until I have done so. And trust me there a tons of surreal questions I ask myself, which means I tend to live in my mind more often than I should and the work for me is to ground my self in my body and reconnect to it as much as possible. Digression.

Part of me, slightly arrogant me, believes that I am unique and somewhat better than others. (Got to be honest)

Part of me genuinely believes that I am not better or worst than others, just another human being.

Part of me asks my subconscious if I truly believe more in one or the other.

Part of me just doesn’t care and goes on with her life.

Part of me thinks I should share this enlightening discovery with others.

Part of me finally came to the conclusion that I am both, unique and common. That my role can be whatever I fancy, the goal that makes me feel good is to be happy so as long as I allow life to be this way, as long as I makes choices that bring me there, as long as I do and am happy. Then I’m good.

I don’t know yet which form it can take. That’s everyday’s surprise.

But I know this is a lifeline I can trust, a belief I can hold, a path I can walk on.

How about you?

I wrote a book

I have been writing for years, but nothing made it to the final step of publishing.

This time it did.

I wrote about Mindfulness, I wrote about life, I wrote about what it means to be alive and live as a human beings fully present and aware of his abilities.

Over the years I have found that mindfulness and more precisely self awareness made everything feel better.

I gained clarity, I gained understanding, I gain energy and joy.

By being aware of my emotions, by shedding light on my patterns and reactions I really got the know myself.

This makes the whole difference.

You can do anything, you can feel anything, you can be anything, as long as you firmly stand grounded and feel connected to yourself it’s all good.

I have another book that has been collecting dust on my laptop for the last couple of years (is it? ) and I might very much publish it now.

The first time always is the hardest, then it’s just a matter of repeating it enough to master it.

I also want to write in French.

And to write book 2 of Mindfulness by Yourself.

I am buzzing ideas.

It’s funny how it works once you genuinely trust yourself and take that leap of faith.

Life feels so much lighter and funnier.

I highly recommend you try it.

With love,

This week has been intense.

The whole household caught a cold (I won’t say baby started it first but I won’t say it didn’t either).

I realised how much I loved being sick just on my own and caring only for me, in fact having people caring for myself felt pretty normal at the time!

Now that I am the one caring for this other little being it’s a little less fun (although very rewarding etc… ).

Anyway I somehow (Time bends as I wish sometimes) managed to be inspired to work and do amazing progress in many projects I have.

Every single time I sat at my desk it felts like Monday. A good Monday. The Monday where you feel ready to kick ass, feel empowered and ready to take on the world you know. That kind of Monday.

It’s the first time I am happy to feel like it’s a Monday. Monday might become my new favourite day. As much as there is a favourite day because all days hold their own little perks and magic.

The thing is to feel it and get into the flow. Listening to what the Universe has to say that day, trusting yourself deeply and doing what feels innerly right.

If you are reading this and it’s July 1st 2021 know that tomorrow I am starting a 7 days challenge to learn how to help this process. It’s time to Recharge as We Go so we can be in that flow and stop resisting life and get in our own way.

Self confidence

I have already written and spoken so many times about self confidence. (Like always end up speaking about it)

But truth is it ALWAYS comes down to that.

TRUST yourself

BELIEVE you can do it

IMAGINE it works in your favour

KNOW you are enough

OWN your power

GET exactly what you wanted and even better

CHOOSE as many times as you’d like until it’s right for you

TAKE full responsibility for your life

LET GO of everything that no long serves you

TRUST even deeper, more and more every day you are so worth it.

Woman, Men, Me, You we all are in the same boat when it comes to self confidence.

It’s time for all of us to wake up and get that right.

We are all amazing.

We are all unique.

We all deserve to have what we want.

If someone else has something you wanted doesn’t mean you can’t get it, we all play in our own lane.

More and better doesn’t involve lack and worse.

Shine bright little star, for you don’t know who you’re going to inspire and whose day you are going to brighten.

Happy weekend

Going with the flow VS controlling: what’s best?

For those only looking for the answer I’ll show mercy and give it to you: both.

Lol.

Now,

How can you be in the flow and be in control at the SAME time???

Glad you asked.

There is a matter of tension, You have to find the exact right amount of tension that will hold yourself straight and help you BE in the flow.

Sometimes you can dissolve yourself in the flow and lose every sense of matter.

Sometimes you have to remain yourself and truly BE while in the flow. Keep your substance and move.

That’s the kind of control that can go with the flow.

It’s the kind of control that help you pull a sail up, help you swim, hold your kite and so on.

To play with much bigger elements we have to be fully present. Fully BE.

The Universe for one is a much bigger element. So is life.

And we are true force of Nature whenever we flow.

Imperceptible shift

My inner work has recently been entirely about this tiny little details.

After years of raising my consciousness, being mindful more and more every day I am now able to distinguish the rise of an emotion.

Now the work is to decide wether or not I chosse (actively choose) how to react to said emotion.

When anger, frustration or rage hit it’s very hard for me to breathe deeply and remain conscious and calm. Serenity fails me and I am back to destroying and avenging my name. Quite the drama queen. I know.

But I take my chances and share honestly my inner process because I know I am not alone. You dear reader, might be one that feel me.

So, anyway.

There is a moment (usually a blink of an eye) where I have to decide. And believe me the urge of unleashing this emotional tsunami is strong and prevails more often than it should.

In this second, with practice, I am starting to see the cross paths.

With practice (and so much sheer will) I can slow down long enough and come back to what really matters. I can come back to facts (that’s what works for me) and with effort let go of this destructive energy. I refocus my attention and manage to say intelligible words.

Are you with me?

It doesn’t mean I am holding back. It doesn’t mean I don’t want to be angry. It means I can choose.

Sometimes it is good for me to unleash my inner death goddess. Sometimes it is just right for me to say something constructive and build a bridge.

I live to pick my fight and choose willingly what to do with my energy (much like time management if you ask me).

Prioritise.

Reach my higher self.

Bear in mind who I am, who I am deeply.

Act accordingly.

All of that in less than a second.

I can tell you, bringing all my awareness to how my energy is being spent has been hugely insightful. I changed my life, and it’s only the beginning.
