Dear People,

Time for some more free affirmations. Today's theme is Truth Affirmations. Sometimes it's hard to find our own personal truth or to see the truth of a situation. Our emotions, expectations or worries can cloud the issue. That really can do a number on seeing the solutions that are available to us at any time.

Pick and choose what works for you and affirm away (I recommend three times a day if you can manage it).

I'm honest with myself
I'm honest with others
I'm honest

I search for my truth
I find my truth 
I live my truth

I am willing to see the truth
I acknowledge my truth
I set aside everything but the truth

I'm willing to speak my truth with love and compassion
I express my truth
I live my truth

Dear People,

Recently somebody asked me what I do during the day time when I don't work with clients. This meant of course that they wondered if I had a second job (no, I don't), but it's also a good opportunity to let people know what I actually do. Of course I'd be more then happy for the practice to grow more and am aiming to move towards 12-15 sessions a week. Why not more? Well, because of all the other work I do.

Client contact
During the hours that I don't have sessions, I answer e-mails and phone calls from clients. I often have several e-mails a day from people who want to book a session, change a session, give feedback, tell me how they are doing or ask questions about my services. Call aren't that frequent but people appreciate that they can reach me between 19.00-20.00. I sometimes get WhatsApp messages too.

Session preparation
I always prepare my sessions as I prefer to see the energy, major blockages and themes before starting a session. It helps me see how emotional/heavy a session is going to be, find common ground with clients and keep the session on track. I usually take around 30 minutes a client, but sometimes it's longer if I get a lot of information and sometimes it's shorter if we already e-mailed between sessions.



Brainstorming & Writing
I love spending time brainstorming on what type of courses I want to give, what type of workshops I want to develop, what type of things I want to with the practice. This does mean that I have had some big projects like the 100% Positivity Deck and the online learning program. I also regularly update the blog.

I also like to read spiritual books, so I keep on learning and developing what my message is and what I believe is right for me.


Promotion
I don't spend that much time on promotion, but I do write my own articles for the paper and usually make my own graphic designs as well. I also send out press releases for my workshops, courses and other activities. I put the activities on the blog, website and Facebook Fan Page.

I do get a lot of calls of businesses who want me to advertise with them. Usually I don't do that as I have a few businesses where I'm happy to be with. Sometimes there are great opportunities though, so that is why I've been on national television!


Paperwork
Sadly, I think I spend too much time on paperwork! I'm required to write down what I do with my time. I have to update my agenda, write down what I got paid, pay my own bills and check up on if I'm on track with my earnings. I don't mind much of the administration work, but some things do feel a bit redundant. Why does the tax man need to see that I spend 15 minutes writing an e-mail?

Exchanges
For my work I want to be in tip-top shape and it does help to also get a critique of your work from people who work in the healing business themselves. Sometimes I have 2 exchanges in the same week, sometimes I have 2 in 4 months. It depends on the schedule of the people I exchange with of course. I love my exchange partners! It's very happy work to help each other grow.


Self-Care
I find self care extremely important, because I want to give my clients the best. This means my body is indeed my temple. A peaceful emotional state helps me as well as my clients. I have regular massages, like to go to the sauna and eat out. I EFT regularly too to make sure that my own personal circumstances don't enter into the practice.

I'm sure I forgot things that I do, but now people will probably see how 12 hours of clients can snowball into a 60 hour work week. One of the reasons I hate writing down what I do is when I see how much hours I truly make. I can spend hours on the practice and be very happy with that, but am always striving for a health work-life balance!

Dear People,

After my recent move the idea of Sacred Space is more alive then ever in my life - so I thought I'd write about it on the blog. You might already have a space where you feel more at home or at ease, but it's also fun to create one just for you. It can help clarify difficult decisions and help ease hard situations.

Sacred Space
A Sacred Space is different for everybody, but most of us have places that we feel are special. When I ask people to tell me about their special places these are often named:
  • A place that has happy memories ~ made during holidays, weddings, festivals, childhood etc.
  • A room in your own home ~ where you feel most at home
  • A place in nature ~ woods, park, beach, sea, ocean
  • A place involving food ~ restaurants,  bakeries, coffee places, candy shops etc.
This special place is where we want to go when we are sad, when we want to think, when we want to be cheered up or when we want to celebrate something special.

Creating a Sacred Space: Energetically
I always recommend creating a sacred space in your home. A lot of people start thinking of buying furniture, incense or other things to make it special, but the easier way is to start energetically. Pick a place where you want to be. Every day take yourself there with positive intent and watch the positive vibes build up. You can also meditate there or do healing work to permeate the space with loving energy. Visualize a healing lattice or energy balls and you will soon start to feel the power of the Sacred Space.

Creating a Sacred Space: Attributes
You can also of course buy things that help your Sacred Space to feel sacred to you. You might want to hang up art or photo's that have meaning to you. Paint the walls or place down a rug. Bring in some flowers or plants. Add in furniture that you love or that has meaning to you. Let it smell great by spraying perfume or using incense. Bring in your favorite tea, coffee or other beverage.

I prefer to have something for all of the senses in my space: seeing, smelling, hearing, tasting and touching, but you can mix and match until you feel comfortable.

I also prefer to have each from all of the elements in my space (wood, fire, earth, metal, water), but you can also use (water, fire, earth, air) or add in Spirit. You can also use Feng Shui to make your place vibrant and alive.

Allow your space to grow to your heart's content, but don't feel bad if you want to change things up as your ideas on what is right for you changes. Even a little nook or a part of a shelf can be enough of a sacred space, you don't have to set aside a room.

Using a Sacred Space
Using a Sacred Space is easy! Just go there all the time.
Make sure you bring in positive energy when you feel joyful and healthy and whole. 
Help yourself process feelings when you feel sad, angry or upset.
Find clarity when you are in the midst of chaos.

Leave your space when you feel whole and at ease (or when your busy life calls!).

Do you have a Sacred Space? Want to share a picture or talk about what's in it? Let me know by commenting on the blog, Facebook Fan Page or talking to me at the practice.
Dear People,

Time for some more free affirmations. Today's theme is Growth Affirmations. We all want to grow in life, but sometimes that process is painful, difficult or elusive. Again, I write my affirmations in 3 different levels so you can see what resonates with you and what you want to work on.

Pick and choose what works for you and affirm away (I recommend three times a day if you can manage it).


I am willing to grow
I am growing in healthy ways
I trust my growth

I stop fearing growth
I stop delaying my growth
Every day I grow towards my potential

What is right for me stays, the rest I release
I grow towards the best version of me 
I grow towards in my best potential in my soul's journey

I understand true growth
I move towards true growth
True growth is always worthwhile for me
