What are we waiting for?

If you have been a student of mine or a reader of this blog for a while, you already know that the body reacts to our emotions and attitudes all the time. This has real-life implications because what we think, we become. And our health depends on it.

Man prefers to believe what he prefers to be true.

~ Francis Bacon, scientist & philosopher

More intensively than usual,  I have been surrounded lately by people dealing with some form of cancer; in my immediate family, my circle of friends and acquaintances, and of course, among the people I support in my work.

Cancer doesn’t happen randomly to innocent victims. Like all illness, it is the result of conditions arising together at a moment in time – most typically when the individual is emotionally and physically vulnerable. But the stage is set many years before cancer is declared.

Although there are numerous cases of environmental cancers, for example those suffered by people working in or living near toxic industries, or first responders to disasters like the World Trade Tower collapse, we know that the vast majority of cancers arise from our own lifestyle choices, including daily and social habits as well as the emotions and thoughts that we are steeped in over many years.

The good news is that we have control over these things – but only if we bring them to our attention and make the necessary changes.  

Even in the face of a cancer diagnosis, it is possible to experience physical, psychological and emotional healing through the changes that occur once we raise our conscious awareness. I firmly believe that every illness we have has a role to play and a function in our lives that makes no sense on the conscious level but makes perfect sense on an unconscious level. 

I implore you to examine your life with compassion and attention. Wake up to wherever you are out of balance and eliminate any emergent signs of ill health, however small. Question all emotions, exploring what arises as soon as possible – don’t let things build up over time. Examine your relationships and look for where there might be hidden anger, resentment, disappointment or other sufferings.

Look for someone you can work with – whether me or the many others who offer some form of therapy that will allow you to see yourself objectively and positively, in order to bring yourself to the best balance possible.

Every modality that I use is designed to help you discover something about yourself that you can take charge of and transform.

Yoga therapy addresses your mental and physical patterns, establishing helpful daily habits that keep you in good health or help to improve poor health. It can involve correcting dysfunctional posture or breathing patterns, taking care of pain and injury, or establishing a healthier way of eating.

I use astrology not for making magical predictions but to help you understand circumstances and difficulties in your past or present in order to empower yourself, become more aware of your true path in life and I show you how to achieve this in the best timing and manner possible for you.

Hypnotherapy is a powerful means of tying up the loose ends that may remain even after years of other therapies. Through Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT – the type of hypnotherapy I work with), we can trace back to key moments in life when unhelpful patterns established themselves as certain beliefs became anchored in your mind, quickly becoming an unconscious program lasting for years.

During hypnosis, we not only uncover past scenes which relate to the current issue, we then retell the story with a more desirable outcome to free you from troublesome relationships to the past. Indeed, the past does not exist: it is all in your mind. We discover this through the practice of mindfulness, yet we can still have mental or emotional blocks when it comes to the more challenging aspects of our conscious or unconscious memories.

We are immediately changed when we change our thoughts and our relationship to the past.

This transformation already occurs during our session, which is recorded to be listened to daily for a minimum of three weeks. We can say that around 40 per cent of the work is done in the session itself, and the other 60 per cent is accomplished from the repeated listening to the new way of perceiving yourself and your situation.

For years I have been fascinated by the capacity of the mind to unconsciously dictate our circumstances in life. This is what led me deeper into yoga and mindfulness, and since last year, hypnotherapy as well. Regardless of what happens to us in life, we have the capacity to respond. This is always our choice, and understanding ourselves better means we make better choices.

If you are a mindfulness practitioner, join us this evening for the Brussels Plum Village Sangha from 19:30 to 21:00. Let me know if you’re coming.

Sending you love and light to last through the longer nights ahead,

Special Offer: One of the (many) reasons I stopped teaching regular yoga classes is because I am not able to achieve the same level of transformation I know is possible when I work with people one-on-one or in targeted small groups. I have full confidence in this process of transformation through all of the modalities I work with.

However, many of you still see me primarily as a yoga teacher, so I would like to offer three individuals an opportunity to explore Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) with me free of charge, in exchange for a video testimonial based on your experience.

To register your interest and book a preliminary meeting, please click this link before Friday 28 September 2018 to schedule an information session. Serious enquiries only, please! This is not intended as a general introduction to hypnotherapy but as a therapeutic treatment of an ongoing issue.

RTT is helpful in resolving fertility issues, body image or weight issues, insomnia, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, addictions and much more. This offer is for adults only, although children and teens can absolutely benefit from hypnotherapy.
