I am doing something totally different this week. This blog article is more like a poem or a meditation for self-reflection.
The fundamental principle to live your life authentically is to TRUST. When you trust your heart is wide open and you surrender fully.
Here is the meditative process to live your life authentically:
Please sit comfortably in a quiet place and take a few deep breaths in through your nose and slowly out through your mouth or nose.
Become aware of your body and let go of any sensation that feels uncomfortable by saying, for example: “I let go of the sensation I feel in my arms and I smile…” Keep doing this until your body really feels lighter and you feel at ease.
Now begin the 3-step meditation for self-reflection keeping your eyes closed:
Step 1: “I trust myself” – meditate on the following:
“As I look at myself in the mirror, I love what I see and all that I am.
I trust my inner voice, my intuition and my gut feeling...
Many women are mothers, wives, sisters, daughters and professionals. Playing all of these different roles can be overwhelming at times and might mean that self-care gets neglected!
A mother of two children told me recently: “You know, Pascale, I feel so overwhelmed by my work load at home that I have reached the point where I wonder if I could cope any longer. I think I am close to reaching breaking point.” She knows deep inside that change is needed or she is heading towards burnout. She has been overstretching for too long, and this is causing her physical and emotional stress.
I wrote two articles on burnout you can access:
It is very important to recognize early if you tend to overstretch yourself and you are about to reach exhaustion point.
In order for women to feel empowered it is increasingly crucial that they find inner balance and harmony. To this end, if you feel...
I wish you a Happy Easter!

"I was completely exhausted...": she said. "The doctor told me I had to stop work for 6 months and if I wanted to return to the same job it would have to be part-time."
"What happened Beth?": I asked.
"My doctor's diagnosis was burn out. I could not function any more. I had no energy, I was living like a zombie, I felt totally numb and empty, and I had lost touch with who I am," she replied.
As a mother of 2 children and Patrick's wife, Beth had given her whole self to her family. She was the epitome of love that gives: she dedicated her whole life to her children and her husband. However, she was consumed by too much doing and not enough being.
Beth had another problem, she was a people pleaser; she could not say "no" even when she felt like saying "no". She wanted to please everyone and to disappoint no-one. Whenever she put her heart into something she had to give 110%. Therefore, her perfectionism also meant that she could not say "no". Everything had to be perfect, she...

Larry Crane said: "Life is so much easier when you're in the feeling stream of love."
"By now you will understand how important it is to open up your heart. Therefore, how do you say YES! to love more often?
One way is to open your heart to the many gifts available to you. For example, we are always given the opportunity for growth, expansion, greater awareness, greater wisdom to give more love, to recognize the love we have been given, to forgive, to let go and to understand etc.
To put it simply by introducing love into your everyday life you will find everyday balance. Love yourself when you are too hard on yourself and love others.
How do you love others more?
Recognize their suffering in the case of conflict for example. In other words, put greater emphasis on love and compassion in order to create greater everyday life balance.
I believe that a heart filled with love and wisdom creates a miraculous and harmonious life.
