'Really Julia', you might say! 'Another of those mindful jobs to do? WHY?' Photo: https://www.elizabethrider.com/ Why do we vision board? Is it really necessary to get glue stick and scissors out and play kindergarten?

With your vision board as a visual anchor, it is like being on the ove
As a parent we experience an emotional range during one day which is so rich it could easily be enough to fill a whole week. I find this exciting, a real privilege! Especially with younger children between ages 2-7, they live creatively so much in the present moment, it is staggering. One minute they are in JOY with their toys, the next second something does upset them and their little world seems to fall apart, they are beyond sad.
They show us how raw, unscripted and deep
'A great dream begins with a dreamer'. So the question is not whether you can remember your dreams or not, the question is: Do you allow yourself to dream? When getting together for a weekday breakfast, I frequently ask my teenagers if they can remember their dreams of the night. A lot of the times they don't, and what I noticed with the prompt of me asking, their ability to remember is incrementally improving. To their amazement, this results in recollecting either snippets
Who...Marie Kondo? Yes, the Tidy-lady from Netflix and best-selling books is influencing the appearance of our wardrobes, closets, drawers, keep-sakes, bookshelves around the world and I wonder WHY! Inspired by my friend Lisa, who mentioned Marie Kondo I undertook the experiment to transform our house, well parts of it, in her unique way. I watched a few episodes and soon it was clear, why this is so popular.
Marie Kondo has a talent and obviously packaged her offerings righ
Clearly, the odds are against this tree stump. Look at it. Fallen after years of growth. Can you hear the chain-saw rattling and revving, the tree giving in to its destiny. It is what it is. Most likely that old tree has lived through a vast diversity of weather conditions, and had encounters with many animals and humans. Have you heard people say: 'It is what it is!'
When life is what it is, we experience and accept the whole of life: a range of emotional rollercoasters, sc
What is going on? Coconut water, coconut milk, coconut oil, coconut flakes, coconut yogurts, coconut pieces, coconut flakes, coconut flour, and now even coconut shampoo and when I bought my first Dr. Organix coconut day and night cream, I thought I am going nuts! I am a therapist and coach, so do not worry, I have got some tools to stay sane....

Sitting in the midst of 10 keen students, some sceptical and some knowing already that HYPNOSIS is working, I find myself learning a new technique for my Hypno-tool-box? (Kinetik Shift!) To my amazement, even I took away a massive boost of confidence for my 'trade' as a watched and participated in more training, learning and practising. The few people in the room who never experienced trance/hypnosis before, understood that it is their own imagination which the hypnotist is a

Isn't it fascinating, life unfolds and we don't know what is going to happen. When I go to bed, I assume that the sun will shine the next morning, or is hiding behind clouds, giving Mother Earth the vital energy and warmth. It's certain, I don't even think about it, do you? Have you heard of the 6 human needs:
As a human being we have these different needs: certainty, uncertainty, significance, connection/love, growth and to contribute.

A nice person recently asked me this question: 'Are you successful? You know with your....what is it called? Therapy? Coaching? You know, the stuff you are doing?'
To my surprise, I was speechless and in my head I heard: 'Hell yes, I am successful.'
Have you been in a situation like that?
The second after, I questioned myself: 'Am I successful? I am seeing clients and they seem to gain something. Do I have enough clients to say I am successful? How many hours of the wee
Are you having a good day? Or maybe it is one of those when you are not really sure, you feel stressed, little things are just making you feel on edge.
Yes, I have those days, and I am sure we all have those days from time to time. If you are this kind of person that you probably are usually between fairly cheerful to extremely happy.
It is a different scale when you believe however that feeling low and grumpy is just the way you are. Because actually you only believe that
Everything starts with a thought. Our mind creates these thoughts and associates pictures and moving images with them. This is normal and happens all the time in our minds eye. When we sleep our mind produces dreams, to process our experiences. I like Walt Disney's quote: 'If you can dream it, you can do it.'
I like it because it evokes all kinds of memories of several Disney family holidays, and with it the laughter, joy and fabulous entertainment. His quote is an invitatio
Believe in yourself. What are the challenges you are facing at the moment?
What have you struggled to face? How did it make you feel when you last time, looked straight at the boundary of your comfort zone. If you really pay attention then you find out very quickly what you believe about yourself and the world to be true. You have build these walls of the boundary in your thinking. You don't need to believe your limiting thoughts. Your heartfelt dreams are sometimes just out
