Remembering the Essence of who YOU are
A couple of weeks ago when I was travelling to India for a wedding I had a lovely conversation with the taxi driver.
I love connecting with the locals and ask them about what moves them, what brings them joy and what they feel holds them back. In about 5 minutes we felt connected and I asked him what he thought his purpose in life was. He smiled and said “to enjoy every moment of my life”.
So simple I thought. And not very easy in today’s intense life rythme where we are so much in our heads. (often regretting the past or worrying about the future).
I smiled. This is exactly what my mission is in life: to be joyful and to bring more presence, awareness and consciousness into this world. When I got out of the car, I felt full of gratitude.
In my head I thanked my father. He was my biggest teacher in opening up people’s hearts.
Real human connecting is about being vulnerable and real. By smiling at people but truly caring and connecting with them. Asking them how they are, what they enjoy doing in life, how many children they have and what their names are…a taxi driver the cleaning lady, your banker, a stranger all of the sudden become friendly and curious because their heart was touched and opened.

I believe that we are all souls earning for connection…we are here to experience the human life to get a feeling, a glimpse of all there is: the good, the amazing, the bad and the ugly of the world. Without judging it good if bad, just observing it and experiencing it in all ranges of emotions with our whole being.
I have so much appreciation and so much love in me I want to give, pure live unconditional, for life and those around me.
What a privilege it is to go be alive, to experience being human! In India I took a lot of time for myself…to reconnect to myself, to just be and deeply listened within.
Be quieting my mind and being completely present I was able to fully feel the expression of who I am and who we all are in our essence: expansion, love, consciousness of light.
A light that was burning in the sun and now was given the opportunity to materialize in a body and visit this place we called earth to experience the human life, to experience itself and its beautiful light.
And it is doing so by experiencing darkness and seeing the ugliness, the shadows as well as the beauty of the world. The moment I saw my own light I wanted to help others see theirs.
Notice how it is all a reflection: every encounter, every relationship, ever experience is a reflection of WHO you are in your Essence, the level of your consciousness.
For many years I thought “Life” is a school where you learn lessons and advance as you go, you learn and grow.
Today I feel different about it. A school is a place where you go to learn new things. Right? But we don’t actually need to learn anything NEW. We already know. The essence always was and will always be deep inside of us…we have just forgotten and in most cases have been “misinformed” growing up by our parents, teachers or society in general.
We need to RE-MEMBER.
My teacher Sonia pointed out to me that it is actually “bringing back a part of you”.
We learned how to trust our heads more and close our hearts, we unconsciously shot of our intuition and forgot the importance of being fully present (our natural way of BEING)
We got used to being paralyzed by our thoughts and live in fear more then in love. May be you were told that you weren’t good enough or you were too much or that you didn’t fit in…
Because it hurt you contracted and unconsciously decided to hide, to protect yourself, to put on an armor, to pretend, to freeze, flight or fight…
The seed for your expression of self couldn’t truly emerge and nurtured. You then learned how to play it safe, life a life like everyone else, do it and follow…or you chose to be “extraordinary” and better than others and prove the world that you are worth it. Does this resonate?
It surely does for me. For many years my EGO kept me in fear.Only a few years ago I realized how much the desire to please others and gain connection actually disconnected me from my true self and the experience of who I am in my essence.
In my process of awakening I now learned to make the ego my humble servant and truly follow my heart. It is not easy, but very very possible. By creating space, being fully present and TRUST that whatever comes your way comes as a gift.
This month has been about travelling and connecting with myself and others.
I have had the most beautiful week in India. I loved connecting with old friends and meeting new people…some of them resonated more than with others, but I was smiling the whole time. I took time to nurture and nourish myself. For myself, my husband, for my family.
I felt fully alive and happy. A good sense of tired.
After a week at home I went to Greece to facilitate a group of 25 women and share my story with them and do a couple of exercices. Filled with the joy and love I experienced in India I was able to communicate with more depth and enthusiasm.
A week later now I am in South Africa travelling on a Safari!
Once again I realize: Nature is incredibly well organized…everything is in perfect harmony. It is the cycle of life. There is no good or bad. It just is what it is. A pure reflection 🙂
I often feel we need to remember not to interfere with our nature and TRUST our own evolution. Whenever I stop pushing and just trust that whatever comes my way is exactly what I need.
A few moths ago for instance an the incredible opportunity opened up to organize six sensory retreats in Paris for top leaders of this world. I am beyond grateful and excited. I am also doing more and more speaking engagements while continuously evolving, growing and RE-membering.
I am sending you all my love. Please remember your essence, your eternal beauty, your love, your light of consciousness. It is true. You cannot “loose” the game, the experience of life. You are always coming home.
A simple question you can ask yourself while taking a decision is: what would love do?
Listen deeply. The answer is within you. Trust it and act upon.
Much love and many blessings,
