I Couldn’t Keep It For Me !!

Hi there,

I couldn’t keep it for me, honestly this interview is fa-bu-lous !! Don’t miss it.

I am pretty sure you’re wondering what I am talking about and I am not going to let you wait any longer. I watched the last interview of Marie Forleo with Franchesca Ramsey on Marie TV and I took a lot of helpful tips and bites of wisdom that we all need !

I particularly like the fact that Francesca has a good confidence in the sense that she is able to share her experiences and her lessons in a meaningful and funny way… and laugher with learning is a killer combination. She will make you laugh and learn effortlessly.

I am an advocate of quality over quantity, enjoy the present and switch off my phone for a day, honestly you’re getting back what is the most precious thing you desire : your Time. So, I recommend you to watch this (this is below) because being inspired, motivated is what I love to offer to you!

 

I Do Not Forget You

I didn’t write for a moment because my friends I am hyper busy.

I am creating my new website on my own and this experience really stretched my comfort zone.

But so far, so good and you may guess, I am a tiny demanding with how I want my website to look like.

So this the reason why I am not writing as much as before but I do not forget you, to the contrary I am preparing something for you which will blow your mind (in a good way, of course!)

After all, my passion is to inspire, motivate and empower YOU !

Happy Friday

With love

Gaelle

What Is Appreciation To Truly Grasp It?

It is an innate feeling to appreciate what is around us. It is gradually to see your vision, your reality taking place and notice these little details every day. It’s like coming out of a bubble of revolving negative thoughts, overanalysis to see your world as it is. And this is where it’s YOUR turn to observe, listen and appreciate.

Sometimes it can be a job offered to your sister, the beauty of the sky after a violent storm, a good chat with your best friend, a compliment from someone. Small, simple events which make us feel alive, happy and part of the steps to have a good day. When you do notice all these little details, you do realise what is appreciation.

Appreciation is a feeling arising in our mind when we start to be aware, to set up our own pace by being organised for instance or changing our habits slowly but surely. It sounds cliché at first because we have been brainstormed to believe appreciation means slowing down which is the contrary of the motto of our time which glorify busyness and productivity.

But this is where it’s crucial to realise this : without appreciation, there is no taste for life, no thank you for what we have, no time to reflect and the risk to be engulfed in a vicious, stressful and negative circle. And this run has to stop. We need to take back control of our life and make the right choices.

Because we have this power, we need to use it meaningfully. And it’s only by being grateful that we can see where we are and what will be our next path/ direction. So, take the time to write down for what you feel grateful each day and your mind will help you to see more and more what you can truly appreciate in your life.

I am doing it daily and I discover all the beautiful gems in my life that I never noticed until now. It is sometimes life-changing or emotionally strong but I am coming back from these moments stronger, happier because I am learning more about myself.

Appreciation is a virtuous circle as well as a door to knowing yourself continuously. Let your life be a sunshine by accepting appreciation in your life.

We All Deserve To Create A Life We Love

Back from a short break in Brittany, it made me realise how taking a break is essential. I needed to rest, relax, reflect and be on my own to recharge my batteries. Any woman should give her permission to look truly after herself. It’s  a question of self-care, self-love and respect.

Additionally it is a fantastic booster because your motivation is jumping in your face, the why of doing so much, thinking so much and attain milestones without even seeing it…and it pushed you to slow down, to pause, to reflect. Your body, mind, soul are craving to have these moments, these present moments to re-calibrate, to question yourselves without judgement, to realise your achievements and where you are in your journey.

Despite the frenzied pace of our world, we have this choice. This ability to consciously make a decision to shift our attitude, embrace a positive mindset to perceive solutions, ideas you never thought previously.

This is an ongoing practice that honestly, I love because I see people transforming in front of me, feeling good, reassured and confident that they can find the solutions by themselves. The light in their eyes when they have this lightbulb moment is priceless.

I attended a Coaching training for Performance that confirmed to me, once again that inspiring, motivating and empowering people is my passion. Guiding people to think different is like magic for me and everyone deserve it. We all deserve to create a life we love.

Self Care Is Good But Self Love Is Even Better !

It is when the truth is slapping in the face that you always stop yourself in your tracks. Your all awesomeness start to dip down and you start to be worried, concerned and put yourself in the guilt box. Because you knew. You knew that it was time to slow down, disconnect from the digital world and make yourself as a priority.

Self care is good but Self Love is even better. If you love yourself, you will take care of yourself, if not it’s time stopping, dipping your toes in the distraction sauce and focus on the essential stuff which is only YOU.

Yes, no need to find reasons not to, excuses when your doctor ask you to have an ultra sound to check if you have a disease that you’re not aware.

Was it scary to hear that ? Yes !

Did I go into the drama rollercoaster that my dear ego wanted to ? No.

Did I feel down and needed some time to reflect ? Yes.

Did I change my habits straight away ? Yes

The result of it, today is my last day before to go on holiday for a well deserved break ON MY OWN. Don’t wait until the last minute, listen to your intuition and have the courage to change for good. My friends, Self Care is good but Self Love is even BETTER !

How Can You Change Your Consciousness ? Take Back Your Power

Give up  the idea of following a step by step guide to show you how being present. We all have this power, to decide, to make this conscious choice to cut off Internet and social media to look around us. I am taking the train daily and I see everyone, practically everyone glued to their mobiles.

Why ? because someone smart had this idea to create so much possibility for these tiny or huge mobiles to hold everything : music, calls and an astronomical number of apps that we can do everything with them.

And this is the problem. Instead of connecting with people around us, we connect with this gem of technology and we cannot live without it. Is it really what you’ re going to become ? A slave of the modern technology ?

No, if consciously, you decide to take back your power and to make the choice to cut off social media when you want.

You have this power. Take it back, look around you, all the tiny details that you miss, all the opportunities you can have just by being more conscious, the lightbulb moments of creativity, the inspiring ideas popping in your mind when you do not expect it, discover something new, open your perspective, shift your mindset by challenging the status quo, dance to your heart content, there is so much more out there to live, to enjoy and to appreciate. Make the choice to see it.

Part 2 – How To Declutter Your Mind ? Give A Try To Ziva Meditation, You Will Never Regret It !

It is often when you expect the least that someone is exceeding your expectations. Because you accept to give a try, to open your mind to new learning, this is where the “amazing” can happen. As you may know, one meditation blew my mind last year and I wrote an article about it last year. However, because I was interested by learning about new topics, I didn’t pursue my interest for Ziva meditation.

It’s only when I joined their Facebook group and really enjoyed the Facebook live that my interest for this meditation was re-ignited. I like the honesty and elegance of the founder Emily Fletcher but also her straight forward manner to explain the art of meditation and the science linked to it. It is fascinating and learning more about the mind, how my brain functions is something I love. So, when she created Ziva online, an online course to learn meditating as per her Ziva method, I felt challenged and intrigued because I truly not a newbie to meditation. Headspace has been my anchor during tumultuous times and I am meditating everyday. (I made the mistake to do not meditate a few times and I commit for this to never happen again!!)

As you can guess, I gave it a try and until now, never, ever regretted it. This meditation brought phenomenal results in my life : no more stress, natural balance in my diet, better sleep, ability to face and overcome challenges and stressful situations, more patience, harmony with my loved ones and more creativity. Your creativity is like liberated, able to expand and flow naturally and better connection with your mind and body.

What I truly loved is the foundations given by this meditation detailed below :

  • Disempower the preconceptions and judgement that people have about meditation
  • What is really meditation
  • What is mindfulness
  • What is manifesting
  • How is it combined with neurosciences
  • How the neurosciences confirm the benefits given by practicing meditation
  •  What is the good way to meditate
  • How to become a self-sufficient meditator
  • How Ziva meditation can uplevel your performance
  • How Ziva meditation can help you harness your potential
  • How Ziva meditation can help you create a life you love

On the last day of this course, I wrote this post in the Ziva Online Facebook Community which is a testament of the excellence of Ziva meditation.

“Day 15 : Ziva brings me so much peace, clarity and harmony in my life motivating me to set more empowering boundaries and to live with grace and beauty. I feel so at peace after my meditation and I am amazed by the results of it. It’s maybe the last day but it is truly the starter of a practice for life. Thank you so much Emily and Ziva team for your energy, commitment to change our lives.”

Part 1 – How To Declutter Your Mind ? By Creating Space !

I decided to declutter, BIG time. In fact, I wanted to do so for a moment and the e-book by Marci Shimoff and Debra Poneman gave me the boost to declutter in a big way. They advised to throw, give 27 items not used or not bringing joy during 9 days.

I dived into this challenge straight away. I was ready to declutter BIG time and I knew the endless benefits of it : clarity, peace of mind, minimalism but above all, I was responding to a calling : to create space in my mind and environment for something new, different in alignment with my intentions for 2018.

Let me tell you the first two days were awesome, I decluttered with so much energy that this decision made me happy all the day. I felt free, light and excited. On the 3rd day, it was another matter, I still wanted to do it but felt torn. I already threw so much stuff that for me, nothing was left to declutter or give. This is where instead of giving up, I played the investigator and decided to persevere. After all, the challenge was to push me out of my comfort zone and it WORKED ! I was struggling, gauging what could leave my flat once again.

I stopped because I didn’t find anything to throw or give. However I couldn’t accept my defeat to declutter only for 9 days, so I started over and this time I thought carefully of all the items I could let go with no issues in each room of my flat. I really took the time to see what I have in a new light : books, magazines, cooking books, make up, skincare, shoes, clothes and more and more. Accumulating things is a manner for us to feel secured, to feel safe and reassured about our power of buying. The downside of it is we can be manipulated by the media, marketing that buying such product will change our life, our habits for good.

To the end, I managed to declutter my flat during 9 days and throw 27 items per day. It was exciting, challenging, getting out of my comfort zone and epic. Ultimately, the result of it, I am feeling so free emotionally and spiritually. It’s like make the decision to remove the heaviness that you are carrying all day without even realising it, it’s truly cathartic and  refreshing to open yourself to new ideas, thoughts, opportunities by just decluttering your space. Give it a try, you have everything to win !

What Is One of the Keys For Success ? It is Strategy My Friends !

What I learned is that behind any goal you want to achieve, you need to have a robust strategy. In a nutshell, each goal you will achieve is purposefully connected to your ultimate goal.

The idea is, like a new building, you’re going to work on the foundations, the materials, the design before making it real and this is exactly what you need to do for the achievement of your goal. It’s like mapping the way to your goal/ desire/ wish. Because your focus is always directed to the success  of your goal, you will not be side-tracked or demotivated.

The key is to have a reminder of your purpose and knowing that we are getting closer from it daily, weekly, monthly is like from a telescopic view, we will create a kaleidoscope view which is your goal vision.

Because we are so much bombarded by information and so many choices that we can lose the plot and truly lose our focus. And it can happen BUT we have the power to say NO and to do massive action for change. And this is YOUR power. When you embrace change, everything you desire is going to happen my friends. Dive into it and enjoy the ride !
