It is my deep feeling that body, mind and soul tell your life story together. They are interwoven with each other and in one human life one cannot live without the other.
In my sessions, I give a voice to all three of them. I believe the three of them each shine their light from a different perspective. Awareness of each perspective creates deep insight in the way you have constructed your self-image. Being aware of this opens a world of possibilities for new choices.
I feel that self-expression is the domain of our soul. I once read a quote that stated that dance is the language of the soul. For me that resonates as such that dance for me is self-expression: a highly personal signature that each of us creates through a unique, magnificent combination of how we move, our use of words, sound, creative expression, emotional expression and the choices that we make to give meaning to our life. It is through this expression that we meet our soul and the heart of our passions, our deepest longings and our deepest truth. Who are you?
I see each soul as an unique expression of a bigger creation. The Divine Creation as it is often called works for me. And I like to think of this like the Divine Creation is exploring its talents, gifts and creative possibilities through each one of us: human and other sentient life. What are your talents and gifts?
I believe that the deepest mission my soul has for this live is to live its full potential. To bloom and radiate in the richest way possible to honor and serve all life. And to grow and learn through the experience of being human. What is your mission?
For me the physical body is more than a vehicle that helps us move through life. I feel that our body is highly devaluated in western society. It is a magic place to live in! Recently I read a quote that expresses the body’s magic:
“ Your physically felt body is in fact part of a gigantic system of here and other places, now and other times, you and other people. In fact the whole universe. This sense of being bodily alive in a vast system is the body as it is felt from inside“ -Gene Gendlin
Every single cell in your body is part of the whole web of life. Just think about it! Your body is collection of millions of these unique cells collaborating together like a micro cosmos in this greater cosmos and it operates on the same universal laws. The cells form highly specialised alliances that take care of your physical form, structure, your internal and external movement, your connection with the environment, your energy management and they store all your emotions, feelings and thoughts.
Your cells connect you with your instinctual wisdom, ancestral wisdom and the wisdom of the universe. It is all in your DNA! Your body expresses you in all its movements. It connects you to sensuality, intimacy and sensuous life with others and nature. It connects you with the heartbeat of earth, her life strenghtening energy .
I feel that living an embodied life is to feel this intimate connection with the heartbeat of life itself. And herein lies our commitment to treat our body and mother earth in a loving and caring way. To honor all life. What is your relationship with your body? How would you like to feel in your body?
Mind is not that simple to define in a few words. It is our thinking brain that tries to give meaning through thoughts, beliefs, feelings. It is our planning an organising brain that helps to put our dreams into action, it is a part of our conscious self and our awareness. And the nervous system is part of the brain too.
I feel the mind can’t be seen separate from the body. “A brain without a body cannot think” And a body without a brain would have trouble to move. This inseparable whole shows itself through f.e. our intuition or heart-brain and instinct or gut brain. Actually every organ in the body has it’s own brain and informs the nervous system. And the nervous system has specialised cells everywhere in the body that send non-stop updates about the internal and external environment. It also gets information from the body’s energy field. It orchestrates the body based on all this information.
The nervous system has a blueprint of your physical, emotional and mental body based on what is important for your being. I call this your self image. This self image serves as a filter for creating patterns in thinking, feeling, movement and action. They become our habits. Unfortunately not all habits are serving us to joyfully navigate through life. How do you see yourself? How do you move?
That brings me to the conscious part of our mind. Our conscious mind governs Self Awareness and that can be the catalyst for change. If we can listen with presence and intelligence we discover with what thoughts, beliefs, and feelings we created our self image. Most of us have self images that are by far complete or accurate. The good news is we can change our self image if we change the filter through which we see ourself and the world. For this we need options.
To create options we need to be able to perceive differences. This is the field of the conscious mind. When we play and have new experiences we allow for different input and awareness of other options or possibilities. And for me one of the super powers of the brain lies in creating a world of possibilities and choice! What moves you? What move would you like to make ?
