When was the last time you emptied your mind – or simply exhaled?

There is a simple rule of life - whatever we take in, must somehow find its way out. This just doesn’t seem to apply for our minds, or at least so we think.

The truth is we are constantly using our mind and filling it up with some form of stimulation. Even at the end of a busy day, cable TV and the Internet allow us to binge on information and entertainment.

Do you struggle with being sensitive? Do you feel too much too quickly? 

No question, being over-sensitive can be a challenge. Highly sensitive people sponge emotions – their own and those of others - making them feel easily wired and overwhelmed.

There seems to be not enough time or energy to process the feelings and sensations, which can lead eventually to emotional exhaustions and physical problems.

On top of it, sensitive people ...

Are you afraid of being alone?

Do you avoid spending time by yourself, because you get too restless, nervous or frustrated with your own company?

Just like you can’t overcome the fear of not being good enough by either procrastinating or striving for approval from others, you can’t overcome the fear of being alone by either avoiding yourself or becoming dependent on others. What causes this fear isn’t the lack of relationships with...

In my training to become a physician, I was taught that as humans, our bodies and minds are fallible, and we need doctors to rush in and fix them.

Since my training and through a lot of research, I found that there is so much more potential in each and every one of our cells to adapt, change and heal than most of us are even aware of. Meaning that each of us has the full potential to heal ourselves, we just haven’t learned how to t...

Some beliefs give us wings, unleash our creative genius and help us to dig deep when the going gets tough. Others can be the prison walls of our mind, which keep us locked in our imagined limitations. Depending on our early imprints, our core beliefs may place a stronger emphasis on safety or happiness.

So how do you erase and replace limiting beliefs that hold you back from growing and expanding into a more confident and empowered ...

Anxiety is a natural form of communication from our subconscious mind and serves an important function. Similar to physical pain, which calls our attention to an injury or other problems with our body. Often anxiety can be a symptom of deeper emotional and mental wounds - whether they are unresolved traumas, self-sabotaging patterns, or limiting beliefs.

By identifying and addressing these deeper root causes, you will not only over...

In today’s world we actually have two viruses going on. We have the physical level virus, and we have a virus of fear that is being provoked not only by physical forces but exterior ones too.

This fear lives in our third chakra and is the home of dissolution, the ego and fear of death. The antidote for this level of fear is faith; our inbuilt energy in the mental body of our hearts.

When we center ourselves and actually live from wi...

How is your relationship with yourself?  Do you listen to your desires, respect your boundaries and make time to take care of yourself? Or are you your own worst critic, never seeing yourself as good enough. Instead take all your efforts and accomplishments for granted.

Now I could imagine that some of you may think, “Loving myself? - Ha, that’s easier said than done”. Or maybe you have even tried the self-love tactics, but believe ...

Sleep comes to us automatically – like the next breath, or the next heart-beat. The question is – what are we doing to welcome it? Three aspects that influence your sleep are your environment, your body and of course your mind.

In order to make sleeping a welcomed task we have to first start thinking about it differently. As in not being something you have to get to or do or a task that needs to be mastered but rather like the Frenc...

The belief is that the more vulnerable we are, the easier we can get hurt or be taken advantage of. But the reality is the pain we are causing ourselves by shutting down and keeping our hearts closed can be greater than what other people may be able to do to us. Life may appear safer when we avoid vulnerability – but it doesn’t make it happier. 

So what can we do when we feel vulnerable? Listen to today’s episode where I talk about ...

Do you also struggle sometimes with a racing mind, feeling completely unsettled and unable to focus or calm down? When living in tumultuous times such as we currently are, it is very easy to get distracted, pulled out of our center and let our mind take us on a wild emotional roller coaster ride.

Like our home our mind needs its own regular house cleaning, training and focus to clear the everyday accumulation of stress, fears, over...

In order to heal from the wounds or wrongdoings of our past they need to be brought up from the basement to the surface where they can be seen and faced head on. Even if the process is painful. This is not done to point fingers, place blame or drag others into the darkness with us. Rather it is so we can look at the experience no matter how painful it may be and move through it in order to be released from the pain

Do you struggle with traumas of your past? Do you have memories of your childhood that continue to resurface? Sam had been tormented by disturbing images inadvertently flashing across the screen of his mind for many years. Daily, he felt forced by his subconscious to watch himself being violently punished by some unrecognizable person.

Sam told me that, as a child, he was regularly beaten and slapped around by his father. At first...

Are you heading towards physical and emotional burnout? After everything we went through in the last 18 months what’s the status of your batteries?

You may think that what you are dealing with isn’t that serious; nothing that can’t be fixed with a few good nights’ rest. Yet, the problem is that many people overlook the early signs of burnout 💔 and thus miss the opportunity to take appropriate measures to prevent more sever...

Do you ever wonder about the purpose of your life and what you are here for? 

Most of us don’t take the time to contemplate such philosophical head-scratchers - until we are forced to, which happened to me when I woke up at 2AM with horrible abdominal pain.

After being rushed to the ER, it turned out to be a relatively minor gallbladder issue, but it felt like my system was giving me a solid knock to make me notice that lately, I...

Why do we do what we do?   What drives our choices and actions more than any outside influences is also one of the least acknowledged aspects of our psyche. I am talking about core values. Values define what is important to us – and what makes us either go towards something – or away from something. When we live in alignment with our values, we usually feel happier and more fulfilled. When we make choices against our values, we...

Do you believe in karma, the law of cause and effect? To quote Wayne Dyer: “How people treat you is their karma – how they react is yours.”

Another wise man said that we are free to choose, but we are not free from the consequence of our choice. But how often have we seen people doing horrible things, lying, cheating, hurting others – and they still seem to get away with it? Does this mean that karma doesn’t exist and that there i...

For almost twenty years, I have been on my soapbox about how to view anxiety not as our enemy but as our responsibility. Rather than wrestling with our emotions, we need to accept them as a form of communication from the deeper parts of our minds. When it comes to anxiety, at first glance, its messages are about not being safe or being worried about the future. Yet, when we dig a bit deeper, we realize that the reason why we feel a...
