❤️ HEAL FROM TRAUMAS ❤️

healfromtraumas.jpg

Your body has an incredible mechanism to naturally heal. When an animal is attacked, after the attack they shake the trauma off their bodies and walk away like nothing happened. They don’t hold on.

Your body does the same. I was offered once a tranquilizer at the dentist when the local anaesthetic didn’t work and my body went into a full on uncontrollable shake after feeling the pain. They didn’t know my body was just doing it’s thing to recover.

Your body is always healing itself, we just need to get out of the way and allow the natural healing to occur.

All it needs is a space to feel and release. Then you come back to your natural peaceful state feeling lighter and freer.

Group and 1-1 breathwork journeys I offer are spaces where you get to do this ❤️

These are Jitka’s words after joining few breathwork journeys 👇🏼

“I went to few of her breathworks and the stuff that I was releasing was mind blowing. I went so deep and back into my past. Each time I feel so so much lighter.

If you’ve not experienced it, it’s really hard to explain, other than its way way better than what you are already imagining. I won’t lie it’s not walk through a rosy garden. You get what you put in. But...totally...worth it!!!

I’ve managed to connect to a trauma from 15 years ago and begin deep healing journey that changed my life. You just don’t know how free you can be until you try this.

The best thing is that you don’t even have to know what it is you want to release. From my experience, breathwork taps the vein of whatever you’re ready to release.”

If you’d like to release and connect with yourself deeper, there are spaces for:

✨ Release & Nourish - breathwork & sound bath collaboration 🦋 

// Sunday 12th 2-6pm

✨ Freedom Through Breath - good old monthly breathwork journeys 🔥 

// Thurs 16th 6:30pm

✨ 1-1 breathwork sessions - 1hr journey to release and reconnect 💛

⚡️ YOUR BODY’S WISDOM ⚡️

your body's wisdom.jpg

I watched the documentary HEAL on Netflix a week ago. It’s a brilliant documentary about how our minds can heal our bodies.

.

It talks about how we use Western medicine, surgery, painkillers etc for chronic illnesses when really, they are meant for emergency situations.
.
In the documentary, Darren Weissman said this which I absolutely loved 👇🏼
.
“Every illness, disease is a portal to our bodies. You can attempt to run the subconscious mind, just like you run to attempt to outrun a shadow. You can’t. You gotta turn around and face it. You gotta see the problem as the portal.”
.
I was coughing for the whole of last week. It was getting a bit annoying as it wasn’t healing despite all the ginger, honey and lemon teas. Yesterday I started to have a muscle pain as well during coughing.
.
So that was a final sign for me to sit down and ask myself, “What am I avoiding feeling?”. It was feeling of loss and ending of a beautiful connection I had with someone. So last night, I allowed myself to cry it all out. I closed my eyes, imagined them infront of me and spoke to them. I said everything I wanted to say and felt it all.
.
I woke up feeling so much lighter and now the cough is nearly gone. I mean obviously, otherwise it’d be a shit story 😂 I needed to feel it fully to let it go.
.
If something is coming up constantly from your body, you need to look at it. It’s your body’s way of communicating with you. Maybe you haven’t forgiven someone from the past, maybe you haven’t been following what you know deep down is true. Or maybe you’ve been holding onto a story who believed about yourself since you were a little child, to the point it became who you are and you don’t know who you’ll be without that story.
.
And letting go doesn’t have to be hard. You don’t need years of therapy to go into something in order to let it go. You can let it go and be free from it if you choose to in this moment.
.
If you’ve been feeling stuck and struggling to let go of something, come to group breathwork this Thursday 🔥
.
The energy of the group breathwork has a beautiful way of bringing up and releasing things you didn’t even know were there 😍
.
We have 8 spaces left. Link to book is below ✨

💫 SURRENDER TO YOUR EMOTIONS 💫

surrender to your emotions.jpg

I’m learning the balance of allowing myself to feel sadness, grief and loss while creating and doing my work. I have no control over this at the moment. The more I surrender to my emotions, the more they transform and I’m able to create from that space. 

Life comes with it’s highs and lows. People mostly share about the highs which I find is easy to share. I don’t see many people sharing about lows openly and honestly until I meet up with them and they tell me that’s exactly how they felt 😃 Maybe it’s because of not wanting to go there again or maybe the desire to be vulnerable to a controlled extent where they still get to keep their appearances. 

The lows are where you become who you are. They’re the your stones that turn into diamonds. They’re the richness of life, raw, real and vulnerable.

The most loving and compassionate people I met are the ones who went through hell, who faced their darkness, their lows and went out from the other side, transformed. You don’t become a beautiful person by only experiencing happiness, joy, bliss etc. You can’t have depth with only experiencing these emotions. If you only allow yourself to feel those ones, you’re living your life in denial, removed from life itself. You’re not living fully.

What doesn’t kill you doesn’t always make you stronger. It can make you a closed hearted, resentful, fearful and angry person towards life as well. But when you accept what’s happening and surrender, you grow from it. The more you resist it, the more it’s going to carry on.

Especially if you menstruate and bleed regularly, before and during period is a time where all your stuff comes up. If you look closely, that period pain is telling you something. That feeling of loneliness, sadness etc is there to be felt fully. Allow it before you jump to wanting to fix it. Painkillers are not the answer.

Over the years, especially when I was small, I learnt to be joyful and interested to make friends. And I got good at it. I can make friends with anyone. I love that side of me which is being a social butterfly. It makes me feel alive and connected. 

I also have a super depressed side to me that just doesn’t want anything to do with life. It wants to hide in a room, curl up into a ball and not exist for a while. In that egoic pattern, I can’t even cry. I don’t feel, I’m completely numb and apathetic.

Now I’m learning to accept that side, talk to it, write about it, love it and transform it. Every emotion moves through you when you allow it ❤️

Acceptance is the key. If you’re not accepting as life shows you things, you can’t move forward. You’re stuck. Accept that your loved one passed away, accept that you’ve been cheated on, accept that your friend stabbed you in the back. For your own freedom, see the situation for what it is without putting a meaning to it.

I saw a beautiful friend of mine last week. After catching up, she told me I felt more loving, grounded and accepting. See in my head, everything is turning upside down and I’m loosing my shit. If you feel like that, have an honest reflection from a close friend and don’t beat yourself up. You might be doing so much better than you think you are 😉

Here’s how you can process emotions like sadness, loss, grief:

- Accept that you feel sad. Even this can be revolutionary if you usually deny your sadness. It doesn’t mean anything, it just mean that you feel sad. You’re a human with emotions.

- Close your eyes. Take 5 deep breaths into your belly while allowing the feeling to be there. 

- If you feel teary, let those tears come. If you feel rage, let the rage be there.

- Out loud, say how you feel, to the person you’re angry at, or to yourself while feeling sad. Say anything else that wants to come out.

- Hold and hug yourself.

- (If you find it challenging to get into the feeling, start writing how you feel and let the feeling talk without censoring.)

And remember, after a low, there’s always a high. Crying is not weak, it’s powerful. It’s a gift for yourself from yourself in form of a beautiful release. After big good cries I always feel lifted, calm, grounded and happy. I feel joy starting to come in again in mini waves. 

If you have a job and have things to do, allow yourself that 30 min to feel, to not do anything but to be with your pain like you would do for a friend. Whenever I go inwards, cry, write, someone books their place in my workshop or wants to have a session with me. Always. It happened today as I wrote this post.

Any unprocessed emotions will stay in your body until you feel it fully. It’s the fear of feeling we’re scared of. Once you’re in it, it’s not actually that bad. But the disconnection you have from feeling reveals itself as chronic pain, a disease, numbness. It can even effect your face. For example the left side of your face can change becoming heavier.

I went to 5rhythms movement class the other day. One of the dancers just got qualified in teaching, so the teacher invited her into the huge circle of maybe 70 people. She went in with pure joy, ecstasy, celebrating herself and her success. Then she invited everyone else to join in. Few people joined in. Everyone else was clapping in the outside circle. I watched them, I watched the people in the middle dancing, smiling and laughing. That’s when it hit me:

✨ In life, you have to participate ✨

Whatever it is, wherever you are, however you’re feeling, bring that into your life. Don’t exclude your sadness, your insecurities, include them. Show them to people, love them. 

If you want to feel your emotions fully and transform any heaviness, shame, frustration, sadness, come to breathwork next Thursday, the 15th. Bring all of you to the table. Even the parts you don’t accept or love about you as they will hunt you back until you learn to love them ❤️

Make sure to book your ticket if you want to join, we’re half full now. Here’s the link to book:

⭐️ SHARING FROM ABUNDANCE ⭐️

sharing from abundance.jpg

.

This post is for you guys, you coaches, teachers. healers, practitioners, speakers, givers ❤️ 

.

It’s about sharing from abundance (love) rather than sharing from lack (fear).

.

In the end of the breathwork journeys I hold, I always promote the assistants’ events or offerings. I send a follow up email the next day to recommend events I’ve been to and found them powerful.

.

This is something I do naturally since I was a kid. Whatever I have, I’d share it without wanting anything in return.

.

When people ask me how I get clients or fill my breathwork and women’s events, I don’t have a specific answer. Breathwork ones are the most magical ones, they bring me alive. Of course there are practicals I do such as creating a fb event, inviting people in and sending a newsletter twice a month to 400 subscribers. Then maybe a post here and there. But that’s pretty much it.

.

Behind the scenes, what I do is, I imagine 20-28 people in the room, breathing, going into their darkest places, feeling it all, releasing and coming back to their full power. I imagine this a month before the event, 3 weeks before, the week before, when I’m on the bus, when I’m eating my breakfast, I send love to those people I haven’t met yet. Love is the most powerful force on the planet. It transforms everything, it’s magnetic. And those people show up.

.

Last breathwork we held was 23 people, I didn’t know half the room, they were all referrals. This is what happens with love, it rippels out to people you don’t even know ❤️

.

You can’t use love as a way to manipulate to get what you want. Same as you can’t manipulate yourself into feeling grateful. It has to be natural. It has to come from your heart, from a pure place of no expectations. I don’t expect the room to fill up, but I imagine people coming back to themselves, loving themselves. That’s all I want, a world where people feel they can be themselves ✨

.

It’s easy to assume that there are limited amount of people you can help. If there is a potential person who can attend your event, it can be tempting to hold onto them and resent them when they don’t turn up after saying they will. Remember, people don’t owe you anything. Set them free. They can change their minds and that’s ok. There are billions of people on this planet and there is never too many coaches, healers to help people. It’s now more than ever we need you guys. To step in to serve and give.

.

✨ What if people copy me?✨

.

That’s actually a good thing. It shows that what you’re doing is working. Focus on serving rather than worrying other people stealing your stuff. When people copy you, they can never copy you fully. They’re not you, they don’t embody your energy. 

.

Nothing belongs to you. You don’t own anything. You are in a way a channel for love and wisdom to move through you. Let it flow. A dear client of mine I haven’t seen in few months, reached out and told me that she’s been sharing what I told her, “You teach what you struggle with the most.” It made me cry with gratitude as I don’t even remember saying that but it reached a deep part of her that she’s sharing it now with others.

.

✨But I’m not healed yet, how can I help others? ✨

.

You can choose to wait until “you’ve healed yourself” but that’s never going to happen. All you need is to come to a point where you have awareness about your Ego, remove yourself from it for a moment, so you can help someone in a similar situation.

.

I can be in deep grief and help someone process their grief. It’s authentic, it’s real because I’ve been there, I’ve felt it. Embodying it is much more powerful than having the knowledge. Being human is much more important than being an expert. Since my dad’s death, I’m able to hold more sadness and grief in the space. 

.

Sometimes in the beginning of a workshop, I tell the participants I’m in deep grief and let’s do this. You don’t have to be this incredible and perfect leader, you just have to show up as you are. They signed up for this, because of your energy. Not the venue, not the music, not the assistant, but you. This is your creation 🔥

.

.

If you want to learn how to operate from love and have a natural abundance in your business through giving and surrender, I offer coaching and healing (that actually works) for you spaceholders, coaches, healers, speakers. I’m offering a 20% discount until the end of the year. If you’re interested, just message me.

.

Feel free to share this post if it resonated with you ❤️

.

Sending you love and blessings 🙏🏼✨

I woke up feeling so alive this morning, full of joy, excitement and bliss! ❤️

I held a breathwork journey yesterday for 35 people at 11:11 Events where we had a day full of talks, workshops, open mic jams 🙌🏼

.

I'm out of words, honestly, each time I do these breathwork journeys, its an honour to see how willing people are to go deep within, to let go and move forward with lightness and freedom. It truly makes me happy when I see someone feeling their pain fully, then 10 minutes later, they're free from it, liberated from their past traumas. They're a different person than the one who walked into the room.
.
Thank you Saara Daisie Isabel Rita and Jenna for holding space with me. It means the world to me to know that I'm not alone, to know that there's a whole army of men and women behind me pushing me forward, supporting me ❤️ I always believed I had to do this on my own, that's not really the case:) Thank you Rita for doing such a great job in creating an incredible energy for the whole day 🙌🏼
.
Now I'm off to packing my whole life in one day for the move tomorrow lol. Super exciting times 😍🙌🏼
.
Wishing you a wonderful Sunday 💛
.

I'm back! 😘

i'm back.jpg

Had 2 weeks in Istanbul seeing friends and family, playing lots of games and doing bit of work..
.
Now I'm ready for London, allowed myself some time to rest yesterday and went back into sessions today.
.
If you had a break from something and when you get back to it, you feel like not knowing where to start from, just start from somewhere. And the momentum will start picking up quickly.
.
Don't try to figure it all out before you start. If you do that, it's guaranteed you won't start 😂
.
And don't compromise, whatever you imagine, you can have it. As it is, not the watered down version but the actual dream ✨
.
If you vaguely know what your dream is but not sure where to start from, book a 1 hour free taster session with me to get clear on it and find out the next step:

I will ever be grateful for my clients and the women who show up at the workshops I do. They show me so much more than what I show them, if not more sometimes.. If that's you, thank you from the bottom of my heart 😍
.
Number 1 way to grow and heal, serve someone to grow and heal 😃💜 And no, you don't have to heal yourself fully to do it. 
.
Now I'm off to 5rhythms to dance, one of the things I miss when I'm away.. 
.
Wishing you a beautiful evening y'all 💛✨
