Sometimes…

Sometimes bounds get broken and friendships fall apart, some relationships just aren’t meant to last ! Then there are fairy tales that are abruptly ended or places where fate stroke people hard. Sometimes people have nothing in common anymore or nothing else to say, so each goes his own way. Sometimes time nor space can drive certain people apart !

Sometimes people change for better or for worse and they suddenly find themselves doing things they never believed they could have done. Sometimes you are the one who has changed and what was once attractive to you now feels like a piece of dust.

As an era comes to an end and you continue your journey amongst new faces and familiar ones, you will realize that each ending is a new beginning aswell and that you eventually can’t be alone !

Sometimes mothers need mothers to care for eachother, sometimes brothers need brothers to get things done. Sometimes it will be strangers who put their lives on the line for you, trying to save you from harm. Sometimes it’s a friend who helps you carry on.

Sometimes all it takes is one single move in a different direction, sometimes it all starts with one to hold on.

The fifth and last Belgian Sea King helicopter made its last flight on 21 March 2019. The five search-and-rescue (SAR) helicopters had been operating from Koksijde on the Belgian North Sea coast since 1976, having saved 1,757 lives, according to the Belgian Ministry of Defence website. Their missions also included responding to aircraft accidents and recovering pilots lost behind enemy lines. The board commander on this flight lives in my hometown. Thank you for your service !

Make empathy great again !

A lot of people don’t know how to communicate properly anymore and fail to make meaningful connections with others.

Many lost their ability to observe and to be objective. They don’t know that their perception is filtered internally and that they react to their environment according to their own beliefs.

They lost their ability to listen without judgement, they are full of preconceived ideas on how others should behave, act or be. They just pick up the bits and pieces that seem useful to them and that match their inner reality.

They don’t give people time nor space to tell their story and say it as it is. They don’t give people room to be who they truly are.

It is a huge handicap ! From this inability confusion and misunderstanding arises. We let our emotions get in the way and often react without having truthful information. We often make decisions according to our assumptions or even according to a hearsay.

With empathy comes the power to hear what was left unsaid. With empathy comes the ability to feel what’s really a burden to people’s hearts.

Empathy is a superpower that we urgently need back !

No, not me !

Have you ever been at the mall, spotted someone you know and then tried everything to avoid them ?

You turned on your stealth mode and hid behind mannequins and plants, you squeezed yourself into tiny lockers, you even put on several disguises… All to no avail !

Suddenly you felt a presence behind you, a hand on your shoulder. You turned around and yep ! Busted !

Then you were engulfed by an avalanche of complaints, gossip and other poisonous words. You can’t recall having bought tickets for that show !

tumblr_p7j9r72kUp1skn9i9o1_500.gif

There you were, stuck for a indefinite period of time until you got the guts to abort the conversation or took a chance to escape…

Luckily, we conscious empaths and sensitives, have a built in bullshit radar, we sense when people try to steal or drain our energy !

We don’t like to be pulled in drama and negativity.

Keeping at a distance from such people isn’t rude nor selfish !

It is a matter of self-preservation to keep your energy bright and clear !

So repeat after me :

notme

Go drama free !

The birth of a queen is the death of a cynic.

Realize that the real self isn’t in pain or fearful. It remains completely unaffected. It is the separation from your true self that feels painful because it is unnatural !

The more you separate yourself from your true self, the more you will feel “broken”. You start identifying yourself with your conditions, problems and diseases. You start stating all kind of untruthful things about yourself : “I am depressed, I am alone, I’m such a loser !” You fragmentate your power !

Your ego mind chooses to think these dark thoughts all over again, this way creating a fixed loop in your subconscious mind. It doesn’t only get a life of its own, it is a lot of heavy shit to own !

750x500

Parting from these problems can be difficult because you’ve labeled them “serious issues” and you regard them as unchangeable ! You also believe that these nasty feelings will never go away so you bury them too !

Tick tock tick tock ! You are now programmed for self-destruction !

The psychosis you speak of are the monsters you have left unattented and that are now running loose in your head ! Catch these impostors and set Your Self free !

Go drama free !

Et voilà !

“Voilà” in French can be a kind and polite “Here you are” when someone hands you over the newspapers or when a waiter serves your coffee.

A gentleman will use it with elegance and flair, as a form of charm or courtoisie. “Here you are my lady” with or without the curtseying…

tada.gif

“Et voilà” can also be a solid “Here I am” or a burlesque “Ta Da” ! A deliberate and spontaneous naked expression, a no-nonsense exposure of yourself !

It comes with a “What you see is what you get” or “Take it or leave it” attitude !

Did someone talk behind your back darling ? “Et alors ?” So what ? Who cares ? What others think about you is completely irrelevant ! Move on…

“Et Voilà !”  “It is done, It is finished !” It means you’ve completed your mission, maybe the unexpected happened and you proved everyone wrong !

Ooh and you definitely need to buy that red dress if you want to be a bad ass !

Are you a sentinel ?

“Quantum physics tells us that nothing that is observed is unaffected by the observer. That statement, from science holds an enormous and powerful insight. It means that everyone sees a different truth, because everyone is creating what they see.”

 

Neale Donald Walsch

From suffering and conditionned awareness to freedom and naked awareness.

When you quiet your mind you are more able to focus and direct your attention. The direction of your attention is a powerful tool to transform your life.

Your choice of attitude and focus not only affects your own experiences, it also affects the experiences and behaviors of others.

If you can quiet your mind, you become a sentinel, you get access to your inner gifts and your sixth sense and you’ll get a broader perspective in life, one not limited to the 5 senses.

It means you stop giving meaning to anything that happens, good or bad. It means you remain open and receptive to everything !

You just observe without preconceived ideas or judgements towards yourself and others. You finally get a clear view on reality !

With mindful practices and meditation you can learn to get beyond your mental noice and silence the monkeys in your mind. You can get in the zone quite easily when you start to control your breathing !

Flow is a balanced state where your actions aren’t disturbed by the preoccupations of your mind, it is a state in which time seems to have stopped and outer conditions don’t affect you at all.

It’s like you become immune to the mockery around, you can’t be ridiculized anymore or knocked out of your center !

You govern your inner world, you are the silent watchman at the gate ! You decide what comes into your world, trespassing is not aloud !

Passion, your desire’s lover !

“I once had a thousand desires, but in my one desire to know you, all else melted away.”

 

Rumi

Passion is your horsepower in life. When you tie passion to your dream, you never get bored or tired !

Passion propels you forward. It is a powerful drive coming from the core of your being.

Without it, there are no sparks, there is no real connection ! Neighter accomplishments, nor satisfaction !

Passion is your desire’s lover, it is a sacred mix, a marriage of intention and attention !

Passionate people can mesmerize a crowd and give others zest to thrive !

Passion secretly grows within. It is a seed spawn out of the dark.

Passion releases what was doomed to live in the shadow !

It is bravery and excitement, dipped in madness !

Madness for whatever you fell in love with…

Without passion you’re not able to fully taste the fruits of life !

What are you passionate about ?

Aarrr !

“No mate, I’m free forever. Free to sail the seas beyond the edges of the map, free from death itself.”

 

Captain Jack Sparrow

The map is not the territory

Every person has his own view (map) on reality. You don’t see the world as it is, you see the world as you are. All your habitual thoughts and emotions make up beliefs and create an internal map of how you think the world should be or look like. You perceive the world with your 5 senses, but your perceptions are filtered internally.

Discover unknown territory

When you feel stuck or feel you have run out of options you are trapped in your habitual thinking ! This creates a mental loop that continiously reinforces and repeats itself. Once deeply ingrained in your psyche, it is difficult to get to the core of your misconceptions and to root them out for good.

As a pirate longing to find a long lost treasure, be desirous of broadening your horizon, be willing to explore unknown territory. As a pirate creating his own path, make new connections, create new patterns in your brain instead of parroting the usual negative stuff !

Be who you AARRR !

A parrot repeats without proper understanding and just mimmicks the behaviour of others. A parrot repeats what has been told without questionning…but a pirate is a free spirit !

He follows his own magical compass, the way of his heart, driven by passion for life itself ! This passion is translated in the word : “AARRR !!!”

Are you exhausted from the struggle ? Are you depleted by all the drama in life ? Are you facing an insurmountable obstacle ? A pirate says : “AARRR ! You can beat this !”

Is your energy decreasing and your vibration low ? A pirate stirs things up and say with full determination : “AARRR ! You can change this ! You can do it !”

What does it take to become a pirate and to discover the power within ? A pirate’s only advice would be : “AARRR ! BE WHO YOU AARRR !”

Heal with play !

“The body heals with play, the mind heals with laughter and the spirit heals with joy.”

It wasn’t until it started raining cats and dogs and it went completely dark outside that I realized my son had escaped my attention completely. Suddenly I was aware of the silence inside… No answer when I called him. I looked around in every room, he was nowhere to be found ! Strange, a few minutes ago he was still absorbed in his play…

But then I turned my head and looked outside. There he was in our garden, jumping joyfully up and down on his trampoline completely naked in the pouring rain !

The overprotecting mom in me immediately thought of getting him out of the rain as quickly as possible, but instead of spoiling the fun for him, I decided to observe him for a while.

I have to admit : his energy was contagious ! The whole spectacle made me smile from top to toe aswell.

It made me realize how freely, innocently and joyfully children move through life. It made me realize how often we, adults put an end to this spontaneity.

To what extent are we killers of dreams and are we guilty of destroying the creativity and curiosity of our children ? How many times do we tell them to stop imagining…

How long have you been hiding your own inner child ? How long have you neglected it, avoided it or refused to talk to it ?

What are your excuses for not bringing back some joy in your life ? It’s too late…I’m too old for this…what will the neighbours say ? I’m not supposed to do this, I’m a grown up now…Let’s be serious…

It is programming and conditionning from our childhood that determines so much of how we operate in life and unfortunately we unconsciously project our own restrictions on our children later in life. Because the child within you has been repressed, you will repress your children.

We haven’t healed our own inner child yet and still carry around our own childhood wounds and hurts. All this past pain has consumed our innocence and our ability to look at life with childlike wonder.

Look how easily children connect when they are playing. Look how easily we forget time when we are playing…Playfulness is in our nature ! Joy can nurture us back to life !

Wolf and Flame

 

wolfandflame

It’s never too late to discover the wolf within !

Wisdom

A wolf woman is courageous and dares to speak her truth. Allthough this woman often walks a lonely path, often covered with challenges, she has learned how to use and trust her intuition. She has embraced her shadowside and she has managed to walk through the dark with an extreme confidence in herself.

Opportunity

A wolf woman is a trailblazer. Instead of following someone else’s footsteps, she creates a path of her own. She has a laser focus on what she wants and she recognizes the signs along her way that create opportunities for herself.

Love

A wolf woman has conquered her fears and has chosen love to be her guiding force. She is a nurturing mother and protects the vulnerable. She knows love is the garment of her true naked self.

Freedom

A wolf woman has found her way out of the maze. She has gone beyond the roles she occupies in life and the identities she took on along the way. She knows these are only masks, cover ups for who she really is. She is a passionate expression of who she genuinely desires to be.

Are you being true to your authentic self ? Do you have the freedom to do what you want in life ? Is there room to be you ?

Bring some WOLF back in your life !
