Relational Well-Being // Soul

“We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.”
― Herman Melville
Woman standing looking over landscape and sunset- this is what it can look like to live your best life

The work always starts with ourselves, but ends with being able to be fully present in community.

If we are unable to stand strong on our own two feet, it’s hard to reach out a hand to someone else who needs us.

If we don’t know about our own needs and boundaries and how to lovingly assert them, both parties might end up tumbling down together.

But once our inner work is (mostly) done, we can safely, lovingly and joyfully be with others and inspire and uplift.

We can learn to live in the freedom of knowing that we cannot change other people or our circumstances, but we can change ourselves so that our circumstances and other people may change as well.

This way, we can give to and be there for those we love, are open to receive in return and be with other people without causing harm or sacrificing ourselves.

Soul Essentials

I believe that every person is capable of living a happy and successful life in which they can truly be themselves, live their purpose and do that while also living sustainably and contributing to saving our planet –  but most of us have never learned how to do that.

It is my goal to support YOU in living that life, by share simple tools and methods that work to MAKE OUR LIVES more SUSTAINABLE, as well as more JOYFUL and more MEANINGFUL, and help us to open up ways to bring more of what we love and desire into our lives.

The free information provided on this BLOG is here for you to get started and to get an idea of how I work and think. This is an offer for you to bring more love and freedom into your life, and to learn more about the ways in which I can support you on your personal growth journey.

If you find it useful, just imagine how much more positive change you could create working with me. You can book a free call to learn more or join A MAGICAL YEAR, for an affordable 12-month transformative journey with me.

Please share whatever you find useful with your friends and family as well, because we all need more support and love in these challenging times.

What does it look like to be of service to the world?
I wake up happy, I go to bed happy. I get so much more done in a day than I ever would have imagined.

I’ve solved a washing machine problem this morning, tended to my plants, had breakfast, planned for some future articles, checked my emails and danced a little in the kitchen.

In no way would this have been possible a year ago.

Start Living your Best Life with Self-Actualization Coaching

Self-Actualization Coaching is designed to help you to start living your best life.

Born out of the positive psychology movement, Self-Actualization Coaching focuses on how positive changes can be achieved, rather than why things are the way they are and what caused them.

With this approach, it offers an alternative to traditional therapy and can be especially useful to those, who have not reached the results they hoped for with psychoanalysis or cognitive behavioural therapy.

It is practical, works with small and concrete steps, which can cause significant changes and can help anyone to work towards becoming the best version of themselves, and to develop and explore their full potential.
