  • open your heart and express your vulnerability and true self without judgment

  • do not spend time on things you do not like, that is lifetime that is lost

  • change what does not serve you no longer, do not fear the unknown
  • find out what you are capable of, do not keep your gifts hidden
  • we are built to overcome challenges, the growth and development is outside your comfort zone
  • if you are not changing something and keep going on the same old story every day something life-threatening is likely to occur anyway to kick your butt and out of your ‘comfort zone’
  • better call it familiarity zone, everything is predictable and known
  • honor the wake up calls (symptoms) and change things before they need to grow into severe diseases such as cancer
  • you can liberate yourself from a hectic, unfulfilling life by creating and then deepening quality connections with your body, your True Self and others in your life and with Spirit.
  • there is always benefit of working with someone who can see beyond what we can see, we went through all that and just realized our common mentor Marci Shimoff
  • watch out for a mentor who has gone through similar challenges
  • if you get diagnosed with the c-word, call it cancer, somebody who has faced all the struggles that come along with it can feel and understand much better what you´re going through (e.g. facing cancer myself 4 times and not only surviving but being healed from it I know exactly what you´re going through and how to skip fear around it)
  • everything involves community
