Let me guess — you’ve tried meditation before and got frustrated because you couldn’t calm your mind? Do this to prepare and see what happens.

The most common mistake I see in my meditation classes is people trying “not to think.” That usually results in a constant battle in your mind, restlessness, and frustration. You think to yourself, “This is too hard. I can’t do it!”.

The thing is, you need to prepare to sit in meditation.

It’s quite difficult to come from an active thinking Beta state of mind and shift rapidly into a relaxing Theta. The problem isn’t in you — it’s in the way you get started.

It becomes easier with time as you develop your practice, but here is what can help if you’re starting out.

1. Prepare Your Meditation Space

Creating a comfortable environment for your…

I am an Introvert and a Highly Sensitive Person, so interactions with other people can exhaust me. The pandemic turned me into a people person and I learned to appreciate physical contact like never before!

So you might wonder how does an introvert, who works from home, loves spending alone time, and dreads social interactions suddenly start yearning for human interaction? Well, the pandemic hit and once I had no choice, staying at home felt like a punishment.

Not having physical contact and having to social-distance for almost a year now has left me quite anxious and overwhelmed. I never realized how much I valued human touch and interaction with other people.

I’ve always been self-sufficient and even hated relying on other people. …

I’m breaking down my personal process and sharing free resources you can check out!

Today I’m sharing with you my step-by-step process to manifest whatever you desire. This is the process I’ve been using for decades, ever since I learned how to play this game of life.

Let me break it down for you first and then I’ll share some free resources you can check out!

How to get what you want?

The first part is KNOWING what that is and then DECIDING to go for it. Often times I see people stating some vague wishes, which can also work, but the thing is when you are specific it gets easier.

Think of it this way — you won’t order A BOOK from Amazon, right? This means ANY kind of a book! Perhaps you’d prefer a book on a certain topic from a specific author instead?

In the same way, if you say

Make this year better.

I think we can all agree that 2020 was challenging and full of major breakthroughs (and breakdowns). It’s been a learning experience — it has taught us to embrace change, adapt to new situations, and get out of our comfort zone. Having had such a roller-coaster of a year, I have put together 10 Mindful practices to embrace in 2021 to make the most of the year and stay centered no matter what.

1. Mindfulness

When going through transitions staying in the present moment is essential. The mind tends to spiral into worrying about the future, which is reasonable in uncertain times…

What if I told you you could calm your mind within seconds using a tool that is free, always available, and can be used indefinitely?

When we talk about relaxation, we usually refer to breathing deeply and consciously. Still, today I want to share a technique that is quite different yet very effective when it comes to calming the mind.

Breathing Techniques or the so-called Pranayamas have existed for hundreds of years. The ancient Yogis have learned about managing prana (=life-force) and have developed effective practices to boost our overall health and well-being.

You don’t need to be an expert to find this to be true. All you need to do is try it and see for yourself. It literally takes a few minutes, even…

For most of my life, people didn’t believe in me, yet I would do my thing anyway. This is how it all paid off. My advice — believe in your idea, as you never know what good it will bring you.

I wish I could tell you a story of when someone inspired me to be the best version of myself, but the truth is — my biggest breakthroughs happened because of haters, narcissists, and abuse.

I did have an occasional angel here and there that helped me thrive, but what pushed me the most was when people didn’t believe in me.

When I wanted to become a jazz singer, a guy from my band told me that I shouldn’t go in that direction, as I wasn’t good enough. It was definitely a wake-up call and truth-be-told I realized he was right — I wasn’t good enough, but that actually pushed me to work my ass off and become the best that I can be.

When he heard me a few years later, he was blown…

Feeling overwhelmed? You are not alone.

In the past year, we’ve all struggled to cope with massive changes in our lives, the loss of loved ones, and our freedom. Our world has been turned upside down, and I have noticed a dramatic increase in many people's stress and anxiety levels.

Even I have gotten more anxious, despite my regular practices. I needed to up my game and find techniques that bring results fast.

Here are my favorite techniques that have proven to be most effective.

1. Emotional Freedom Technique or TAPPING

EFT or Tapping is most definitely the most effective technique I have ever used for anxiety. We basically accept and acknowledge our current feelings and state of mind while tapping on the points…

Stop waiting for your body to start shutting down. Do what feels good for you today your future self can be thankful for!

Last year at this time I couldn’t walk. I’ve had problems with my knees since my early twenties and have been leaning on my right side for years now. The time has come for my right side to respond and say — it’s enough.

At the same time, it hit me — I was turning forty.

Here I was, limping, hips starting to act up, and that’s when it hit me — THINGS WEREN’T GOING TO GET BETTER. I’d never thought about growing old and what I would do if my body couldn’t serve me anymore. This was truly a…

Conscious Planning Method for Productivity & Success

It all started a few years ago when I discovered the Moon rituals. I set the mood on every New and Full Moon, meditate, write down my intentions and finally burn the pieces of paper with my intentions, to let it go. At first it was my personal practice, then I created to share with my community, and finally I shared this sacred experience with my women’s circle here in Paris.

The fact is, as women we can relate to the Lunar cycle, as we follow our own personal cycle from beginning to end. I decided to take this…
