When time is given to us like now, reflect of what we achieved is the perfect time. Because we are in a state of relaxation, joy and kindness, go back in the past is a step you can do with more ease and focus. And it is most of time revealing of the huge work/ projects we completed this year. We are easy to judge ourselves and look for better but the secret is to celebrate any victory, success, failure because ultimately all these steps lead to ongoing learning and personal growth. And this is a subject close to my heart to embrace our uniqueness and empower ourselves.
Empower yourself is not only finding the products, methods or online courses which will undoubtedly open your perspective and change your understanding of you and the world, it is truly be open to learn in an unconventional way to challenge the status quo and put to light what is not working for you right now : judgements, preconceptions, media, society definitions of success, beauty, education in a nutshell brules as defined by Vishen Lakhiani, founder of Mindvalley.
It is also, learning from your life journey, failures, comic situations, achievements or circumstances getting you out of your comfort zone to truly experience and live.
So, take the time to enjoy your loved ones and reflect on the past 12 months to identify what you want to achieve in 2018.
Ask yourself : What do you desire the most ? Why is it so essential to have what you desire ?How can you achieve it? What’s stopping you ?
These questions will guide you to uncover your real desires, the purpose behind them and your inner limiting beliefs and/or roadblocks to give you the opportunity to blast them off. If you need more guidance to replace them by empowering beliefs, do not hesitate to contact me, as your cheerleader, I will be happy to empower you and help you transform your life in an authentic way. 2018 is the perfect time to dare, to rise and to shine.
I attended a Neom Organics event two weeks ago and the subject the Art of Connection really resonated with me. What is the art of connection nowadays? Are we able to connect authentically and most importantly how?
When I was in holiday, I reprogrammed my mind to disconnect from the digital world by switching off my mobile.
It’s simple, easy and straightforward but what’s happened when you’re back at work?
I have 4 kick ass bites to boost your focus and success now :
1.Blast off these notifications
Between the promotion emails with tons of discounts, great deals with the brands I love, the social section of my Gmail exploded since I’m part of several Facebook groups and to the last the emails, the real emails I need to give my attention to are increasing every day.
How can we organise this constant flow of information ? By setting bridges to stop this flow. How ?
Let me tell you : I switched off all the notifications making my heart beat faster, i.e. that I took the bull by the horns and decided to receive only reminders for the calls I need to give, for my meetings and tasks to do per day. Asana is awesome for that. Since then, freeing myself from these tech reminders made me feel like a million bucks and my self esteem and confidence skyrocketed! Use the technology to serve you, not to be a slave of the digital world.
I cannot tell you the number of emails I received in my personal inbox per day and I was litteraly losing a precious time to read, organise and respond to everyone. What I did firstly is to unsubscribe to all the emails I am happy to receive but pure temptation for my monthly budget. It’s when you start to get tired that you start to resolve your shit and one day, illico presto I did it.
Every email received, I asked myself this question : Is this email is adding value to my day and my objectives ?
Yes – I read the email.
No – I unsubscribe from this mail list immediately. Pronto.
3.Connect with Your Tribe
When you feel bored, not challenged intellectually, going through the motions without being very present, give a call to your friends. The friend who will tell you the truth with no flowers, the girlfriend who will get you out of your moodiness and push you to fight, the brother who is always here to support you no matter what, each of them know you from the core and are the best to elevate you, push you to be yourself and become what you want to be. They believe in you, they love you and this is priceless. Look after your tribe.
4.Develop Your Awareness
Being aware is the gift from the Universe. Seriously, because with this power in your hands, you know, you see, you feel when you are in misalignment with your vibes. Meditating is opening the doors to new perceptions of the world around you because you are willing to see it and this is the first step. Secondly, you deepen your empathy, your kindness, you re-learn to being compassionate with others. Why ? because you understand on a higher level the world, the power of your ego and intuition and make the choice daily to fight for love or hate. The meditation app Headspace is awesome for beginners and Ziva is the best meditation I have ever tried. The power is in your hands, it’s time to harness it.
Which one of these bites are you willing to apply now ? Leave a comment below, I’d love to hear from you.
I did not use it. I did not open it… and it dramatically changed my day. More in tune with myself, observing the world around me helps me greatly to be in the present and enjoy each minute of my life differently. It’s like being on another dimension and realise that this one is the correct one, the one I need to connect to to find back my balance. Time is slowing down, no more bips, news, notifications everything around me look more interesting and real than ever.
I enjoyed looking at the sky, at the environment around me and to feel settled once and for all. This is what I experienced by not having Internet in my flat for two days. Let me tell you, it was pure bliss, detachment from the digital world to not be driven by it but instead taking back control. Pure, real and raw power to switch off technology around you to appreciate more your life. Pure, pure bliss that I would repeat as much as I can.

I woke up 10 minutes ago and I can also hear my bundle of joy, happy to be a vocalist this morning. My mind is empty, I mean, I know I have things to do to keep me balanced during the day but today, I just want to embrace this moment, between sleep and being awake and see what is happening.
Taking this time brings so much perspective to this day. Where I am ? What did I do ? Where I want to be ? My daughter just joined us in our bed and this, THIS moment is my response : I am where I should be no matter what, where I am is where is my home.

Un temps changeant, des changements au travail et des bonnes séances de sport et… je fatigue. Je ne suis pas du tout du genre à faire une siesta dans la journée ou un mini-break pour faire une micro sieste mais hier j’ai eu sérieusement un coup de barre. Quand vous vous sentez endormie et avez besoin de vous asseoir et de vous poser, vous savez qu’il est temps de vous pauser pour de bon.
Alors j’ai ralenti mon rythme, laisser couler et laisser mon regard noter tous les détails autour de moi. Infiniment mais présents dans notre vie, il y a une myriade de détails qui m’ont amené à apprécier ces bulles de bonheur : les jouets de ma fille étalés sur le tapis du salon, les photos de nos vacances à Amsterdam, mon homme à la cuisine, tout ces détails m’ont aidé à poser mon esprit et à jouir pleinement de cet instant. Pas de stress, pas de rush, pas d’intérêt, juste être et le réaliser. Ce moment de serenite m’a apaisée, rassurée et relaxée immédiatement. De temps en temps, juste faites-le, vous poser pour voir les bulles de bonheur dans votre vie et en profiter pleinement.

J’adore ralentir le rythme de ma vie, de mes pensées pour réaliser ce qui se passe autour de moi. Plus j’essaye de profiter du moment présent et franchement, je vais vous le dire mieux c’est.
Quand je suis en France, je me sens pleine de vitalité et de dynamisme comme si l’air est différent, le rythme est plus dolce farniente que ce soit dans les grandes villes ou à la campagne. Les gens prennent leur temps de manger, de boire, d’apprécier la douceur de vivre et ça fait du bien.
A Londres, cette douceur de vivre existe mais vous devez apprendre à être réceptif pour l’avoir et en profiter pleinement. Elle est présente si vous arrêtez de courir, d’être stressé et de vouloir à tout prix rattrapez ce petit malin appelé le temps. C’est à ce moment-là que vous pouvez en jouir pleinement, l’inviter chez vous dans votre regard et dans vos pensées…et nous en avons besoin n’est-ce pas ?
Alors si vous sentez que là c’est trop, que vous êtes au bord du craquage, respectez-vous par vous écoutez, prenez une pause,un café, un thé et profitez, juste profiter de cette pause bien méritée.
