We are capable of profound healing. Often it takes monumental shifts in our thoughts and routines, sometimes social upheavals like divorce and career changes, to maintain our energy, creativity and stay healthy. Self-care, self-education, being our own advocate and being bold is essential in the Information Age. Follow your dream and fine-tune life into authenticity.

Facts / Strategy learnings:
  • it takes courage, persistence, and constancy to change
  • way too often we realize we need to change but fear kicks in and we´re too afraid
  • we both have been through (cancer and divorce) and needed to find our own true authentic self and radically change our lives to live authentically but both have triumphed over the adversity that is coming up and made the radical life changes
  • when severe diseases occur it´s mostly just too much and the mind and body just can´t stand it and react to show us we´re going in the wrong way
  • women today tend to find out their purpose much earlier than we in our mid-life
  • ‘the frenetic model’ of everything needs to be productive too often lead to burnout
  • living authentically is a process you need to grow into
Tips & Tricks / Secrets:
  • become aware of what´s bothering you and stand up for yourself
  • find your purpose and show up authentically
  • be our own advocate, we have to be bold to radically follow our dreams
  • recognize what is in the range of your influence
  • do not keep standing there doing anything about the situation
  • trust your body, you are the only one to know your ‘vessel’
  • our physiology can´t cope with all the evolved changes, stepping out is a choice
  • by changing your life radically often it is possible to get off medication as symptoms go away (the side effects are enormous, in my case, it took me 1,5 year to detox from it with smoothies)
  • keep of media consumption and mob mentality
  • start with small changes, on step after the other and get support from somebody who has been through it
  • break free of the evolutionary cultural path you´re in and find and follow you own path
Takeaways:
  • Self-care is the most important thing, trust your body when telling you what´s wrong
