My take on boundaries

Over the past few months, there’s one particular theme that has been showing up in many of my Sessions: Boundaries, boundaries, boundaries. So, I thought I’d write an info-post today and let you know where to look if you’re wondering whether your boundaries have any holes in them, so to speak.  

In every type of relationship field, keeping your boundaries healthy and strong is vital to keeping those relationships fun – both in your private life, and at work. And there are a few clear signs that can point you to the areas where those boundaries in your relationship fields may be less than good. 

Let me give you some examples to show you what I mean when I talk about boundaries that are less-than-fully-intact – and as you read along, “take the quiz”, if you like, and see if any of these issues ring a bell.

What boundary issues can look like: 

  • Other people’s problems tend to get washed into your energetic space, and you are busy cleaning up after those problems, even though they are not yours
  • You can feel other people’s emotions and states of mind as if they were your own, and this experience exhausts you
  • Some people seem to be throwing all kinds of energetic “darts” at you, and you tend to spend a lot of energy trying to protect yourself from those attacks (e.g. you feel the need to retreat more often than what would feel normal for you; or, when you are in a meeting with these kinds of people, much of your mental bandwidth is spent trying hard not to show any signs of weakness so you won’t get attacked) 
  • Your conversations with someone you’re close to seem to be not-quite-honest and you’re having a hard time talking about your actual needs & desires with the other person, even though you like them a lot
  • You keep noticing that you’re living out your parents’ values in certain areas of your life, even though those values don’t actually match yours
  • When you’re at a family function, you are having difficulties being yourself, and instead, you keep falling back into old behavioural patterns you’ve been meaning to release
  • When trying to explore certain relationship issues, your intuition seems to be blocked, and you are not receiving any clear guidance when it comes to those issues
  • There is a certain group of relationships in your life (e.g. friendships, siblings) that seem to be under the (negative) influence of a certain person, and their influence seems to trigger certain conflict dynamics within the group that create an unusual amount of stress between you
  • You keep sliding into conflict with someone (e.g. at work) even though the “official rules” that exist for that kind of relationship should foster more of a peaceful co-existence

None of these “symptoms” are unusual, and I made this list drawing from my clients’ experiences as well as from my personal life. Because those issues are very common. 

And they are all resolvable. 

One very elegant solution for these kinds of issues is to work on your energies. Setting up your boundaries in an energetic way, then testing them by observing the real-life results they create, and then improving them based on those results – if needed – can help you transform those issues, sustainably.

And this energetic solution is often much more effective in creating good boundaries than conversations (alone) would be.  

So if my list, above, feels familiar, and you would like to work on your boundaries, let’s schedule a Session or two (or, book yourself an Intro Consultation, here, if this is your first time working with me).

And then let’s set up some beautiful new boundary energies for you. 

On getting those inner resources sorted

Let your inner world show you how to make the outer one run more smoothly

This is an invitation and an offer for consultants, leaders, teachers, creatives, coaches or healers (and for those of you who play in similar fields) who want to use their intuition more deliberately. It’s a fully revamped, newly updated version of my signature program, and I would love for you to join me!

“Your Inner Wisdom System” is…

…a fully customised Session Cycle that will make you fall in love with yourself as we explore your intuitive access to your inner wisdom over the course of 12 one-on-one Sessions.  

What to expect from this program: 

  • I’m taking you on a deep dive into your intuitive senses and you will consciously experience your inner wisdom, accumulated over centuries of living life after life
  • You learn to ask your inner wisdom for advice – and you also learn how to recognise wishful thinking before it can lead you astray
  • Together, we transform age-old fears that may have been blocking your intuitive wisdom from coming through
  • We use energy work to enhance your subtle energy fields and your energetic boundaries
  • Together, we develop custom tools for you to keep your personal energy fields well cared for
  • You learn how to consciously work with your soul, with the Earth, and with your helping spirits so they can support you energetically (e.g. if you want to release old energies or call in new ones)
  • Talking to your Guides, you will receive deep insights that will show you who you are; what makes you tick; and how to make life run more smoothly for you
  • With time and practice, you learn how to use your intuitive talents, deliberately
  • You create energetic self-care rituals that are anchored in your personal daily & weekly rhythms
  • And you learn how to use your inner wisdom to make decisions from a place of discernment, deep self-knowing and integrity 

My story: How I learned to use my own Inner Wisdom System

Years ago, when I was still a coaching newbie, I quickly realised that I was using inner resources I hadn’t been aware of before. I felt that in those early Sessions, I was cruising along as if on autopilot, and I somehow knew how to find the “right” coaching questions even though I didn’t have much experience in the field. It all felt very lovely, but I didn’t have a deeper understanding of what that was.

This is why I work with Guides

A few days ago, I asked the Guides for some input for my newsletter, so I pulled some Oracle Cards because that’s often a quick way for me to receive guidance. The funny thing was, I pulled the same card, twice – so apparently, its message seems to be particularly important, right now. Here’s what that card said: “No to resentment, yes to inspiration” (drawn from Danielle LaPorte’s Truthbomb deck – which, sadly, is out of print).

And to go with that card, the Guides showed me this image: 

Imagine there’s an artist, in her studio. She is looking at her easel, and she just realised that she doesn’t know how to proceed with the painting that’s in front of her – so, one option would be to just give up, of course. Or, she could try to find a new point of view and let some fresh inspiration in: She could turn her painting upside down. Or, she could take a photo of her painting to be able to see it from a more neutral point of view. Or, she could turn all the lights down in her studio and look at only the contours of the shapes on her painting, but not the colours. 

With the help of any of these methods, she will get to see her painting “with a fresh pair of eyes”, so to speak, which will help her to understand what it is that her painting might need to evolve – in a harmonious way – and become the thing it wants to become. 

That same technique can be used to work on any aspect of life: When you are open to looking at life from a non-ordinary perspective, and see things from a different angle, you will receive new inspiration to help you understand what it is that your life might need to evolve – in a harmonious way – and become the thing it wants to become.   

I tend to apply this technique by asking my Guides for help.

I pose simple questions, like “What am I not seeing, right now?” or “What do you think I should know about this issue? Where are my blind spots?” – and then, the Guides give me intuitive images and send some fresh new insights my way, which then help me to better understand my life and find new inspiration.   

In many of my Sessions, the Guides and I work together in this exact same way:

For example, when you come to me* for an Oracle Reading and pose your question, the card I pull for you is my entry point into starting a dialogue with my intuition – meaning, I start channelling what the Guides would like you to know, as an answer to your question. Usually, those answers come flowing quickly, like a waterfall, and after just a few minutes, the basic info is out. After that first part, the Guides then usually show me how you can apply the info you received in your Oracle Reading to your life, and I help you to make sense of it all. And after just 45 minutes, we’re all done.  

In my “big” Sessions, I collaborate with the Guides in a slightly different way: You get to experience, yourself, what your intuition and the Guides would like you to know.

In other words, at the beginning of a 90-Minute Session, you describe the issue you would like to work on, and then I help you to tune into your own intuition. This is where you will start to see inner images which the Guides are sending you, so you can see your situation “with a fresh pair of eyes”.

For example, the Guides can show you which of your inner children needs help if they don’t know how to deal with your current situation (yet). 

Or, the Guides can show you whether there’s a past life connected to you who is still stuck in an old emotional pattern, and who would like to find their way back to peace and freedom. 

Or, the Guides can send you images that can show you your issue like an inner landscape which you can “read” and understand, and which can show you what you might need to change in order to find a solution to your problem.  

It’s my job to help you receive those images and that kind of information through your own intuitive channels. And it’s also my job to help you understand how you can use that information and energetically apply it, so that your life can become more harmonious. 

Would like to try one of these options?

This is where you can book yourself an Oracle Reading (45 minutes, 50 Euros), and this is where you can schedule an Intro Consultation, which is basically a full trial Session, and which is open to anyone who has never worked with me before (overall cost: 75 Euros). 

My online calendar will safely guide you through your booking process, and appointments are now available for October, November, and December. 

I look forward to working with you!

*P.S.: At the moment, you can come and have your Sessions either live with me, here in Konstanz, or online, via Zoom. If you choose to come see me in person, please bring an FFP2 mask, since Covid infections are currently on the rise again.

Thank you!

A channelled message

I did an Oracle Reading for a client over the weekend, and I thought I’d share one part of it that might be helpful for some of you: “You might be feeling like you’re running out of time to get to where you wanted to go. A), all of that collective baggage that’s so beautifully obvious these days feels like it’s too big to handle – and I say “beautifully obvious”, because when something is so clearly visible, we can work to transform it.

And B), that personal stuff you are dealing with isn’t trivial, either, and in combination with those collective to-do-lists, your personal mountains which you set out to climb can feel insurmountable, sometimes.

However, the one thing you can trust in, in the midst of all of this, is your heart: It will pull you forward, always. (Side note: Your heart is not really a frivolous thing. Its messages are essential.)

Every day, you can feel into the vision of the place you would like to get to, and search your heart for a thing you’ve been holding on to which you would rather not take into the future with you – and let it go. Traveling light is key, that’s how your heart will best be able to help you move into the right direction.”

The rest of that particular Oracle Reading is too personal to post here, and I would never publish anything that would infringe on my clients’ privacy – but this particular part felt share-able.

Have a good Monday!

End-of-Year Oracle Readings

It’s the end of a difficult year. On a personal level, the pandemic has been giving each of us more spiritual lessons than we might have anticipated, and on a societal level, life has been asking us to course correct on a daily basis, mirroring back to us that the only future worth building is a sustainable one, one that is socially just, as well as ecologically responsible.

In 2020, many of us became more sensitive as to who or what we want to build our lives around, and many of us turned inwards for answers. When I offered my first round of Oracle Readings, in September, some of you (who hadn’t worked with me before) were surprised to find that you were able to see and perceive those answers quite easily, once you opened up to your inner guidance. You came with big questions, and your intuitive knowing and the Guides had some nuanced replies ready for you.

And that’s a sign of the times we are in, in my view: We are being asked to use our intuitive senses more deliberately, from now on. Every day, our infinitely wise souls are collaborating with the consciousness of life on this planet, and together, they are sending out open invitations for us to tune into our intuitive wisdom and to let our inner guidance inspire new ways of living.

Our intuition is so absolutely ready to share its wisdom with us, and it’s our job to turn our daily worries into specific questions, take them inwards, and listen.

Let’s find some answers

For those of you who would like to explore your intuition in this way, I’m offering a second round of Oracle Readings via Zoom. Your contribution: 50 Euros per 30-minute reading.  

In our private Zoom call, you will ask your question, and I will draw a card for you which contains a specific message. In a second step, I will ask your Guides to give me some additional information to help you understand that message. And in a third step, your #InnerWisdomSystem will send some intuitive information directly to you, supporting you in perceiving the more subtle nuances of the card’s message, so that you can integrate its meaning and use it as a reminder for yourself, moving forward. And if past readings are any indication, you will most definitely also receive some piece of homework from your team of Guides, towards the end of our reading.   

Please note that there are a few rules:

First, there is only a certain range of questions I can help you with: 1) your relationship with yourself and with your #InnerWisdomSystem (which includes your relationship with your personal team of Guides), 2) your relationships with others, and 3) your relationship with society and with the world, as such.

Second, I cannot answer yes / no questions.

And third, there are a few more no-gos: No legal questions, no medical questions, and no questions about somebody else’s issues (e.g. “how can my best friend deal with…?”).

Also, I reserve the right to deny a request for a reading at my discretion if that particular request doesn’t align with my values.

Deal? Book yours here and I will see you soon. Thank you!

Und noch was:

Wie immer können wir diese Oracle Readings natürlich gern auch auf Deutsch abhalten.

Update, added on January 15, 2021:

I’ll keep my Oracle Readings on the menu, throughout 2021. And here’s where you can book them. Talk soon!

How to release those fears that aren’t yours

I surprised myself the other day when I went live on Instagram for the first time – ever – and it turned out to be quite fun! Here’s the video, and there are a few more on my Instagram feed for your viewing pleasure.

In this guided energy work meditation, we are going to work with your subtle energies to release some fears that are inauthentic to your system. And in a second step, we are going to release some fears that others may have deliberately instilled in you.

To watch the video, click the play button on the image, above. Please forgive the abrupt beginning – there was a technical glitch there, but I still wanted to share the video here.

Intro – 00:00 to 08:54

Meditation – 08.55 to 27.07

Outro – 27.08 to 30.58

Enjoy!

Release those fears that aren’t yours: An Energy Meditation

Your inner business landscape – an energy meditation

If you ever wondered what the subtle energies of your business or your career might look like, this might be for you: It’s a live recording of an energy meditation I’ve been developing for some of my clients recently, and I thought I’d share. In this meditation, we will be taking a walk through the current inner landscape of your business or your career, letting your intuition guide you to certain energy places that hold wisdom for you. You will connect to specific energetic parts of your work life that hold images and symbols, guides and objects, which have the potential to reveal deep mystical insights for you. And once you have established a bit of a relationship with those energies – which mirror the energies of your business or your career – they will gladly support you in creating a work life that reflects your true self.

During this meditation, you will also get a chance to go to a place inside of your inner landscape where you can ask your business or your career a question. For your first few rounds, take a simple question with you when you go in. Ask, “what do I need to know now?”, or “what’s next?” Let the more complex questions arise from the landscape itself, once you’ve practiced this meditation for a while, and see where those new questions – and your landscape’s responses – take you.

Also, it is perfectly normal for your inner landscape to evolve as you go, so don’t be alarmed if your intuitive imagery changes as your career changes, and vice versa.

As with every every intuitive piece of information plucked from the ethers, you may get some answers you were not expecting. The energies of your career or your business might ask you to be more courageous, or more compassionate towards yourself, or more intentional about your lived values, than what you had originally anticipated.

Let your inner wisdom guide you.

Work with those elements that make sense to you, and leave the rest.

Enjoy!

Also, if you’d like some support as you demystify the inner workings of your business / your career, reach out. Helping you understand how to work with your life’s energies is what I do. I’ve got single sessions available, as well as some customized coaching programs. Looking forward to diving into your gorgeous business landscape with you!

Your Inner Business Landscape: An Energy Meditation

New limited offer: Oracle Readings

I’ve been pulling oracle cards for some friends recently, and there seems to be an underlying theme: Apparently, the energy we need to tap into for the rest of the year is a different one compared to what we’ve been working with for the past eight months. What that new energy is is specific for each person, of course, but there is this distinct shift that seems to be happening right now.

For example, I am currently learning how to work more closely with a particular group of guides in my team who support my energy work skills, and it’s a bit of a learning curve, to say the least. What I seem to be shifting into is a deepening and a refinement that wasn’t available for me at the beginning of the year.

And since a similar (though very personal) energetic shift seems to be happening for many of us, I have decided to offer Oracle Readings to help you understand what your own energetic shift could mean for you. So, for a short period of time (September 15 to September 30, 2020), you can request one 30-minute reading via Zoom with me, free of charge.

Here’s how we will work together:

In our Zoom call, you will ask your question, and I will draw a card for you which contains a specific message. In a second step, we will ask your #innerwisdomsystem to give us some additional information to help you understand that message. Typically, that additional information will come through as a visual, but your system might choose to send a song or a second verbal message, instead. We’ll let your system and your team of guides decide how they would like to relay their messages to you, and if past readings are any indication, you will most definitely also receive some piece of homework from your team, towards the end of our reading.   

Please note that there are a few rules:

First, I want to give those who have never worked with me a bit of an advantage, since all of you who are my regular clients are already “in”. So, newbies, to the front: You get to request your spots, first.

Second, there is only a certain range of questions I can help you with:

  1. your relationship with yourself and with your #innerwisdomsystem / intuition
  2. your relationships with others, and
  3. your relationship with society and with the world.

Third, I cannot answer yes / no questions, and there are a few more no-gos: no legal questions, no medical questions, no questions regarding somebody else’s issues (e.g. “will my best friend ever find true love?”). Also, I reserve the right to deny a request for a reading at my discretion if that particular request doesn’t align with my values.

Deal? Book yours here. Talk soon!

P.S.: Und ja, wir können das Oracle Reading natürlich auch gern auf Deutsch abhalten.

Collaborating with spirit guides: A bit of a How-To

These past six months have been wild for all of us, and unfortunately, this energetic instability will continue for quite some time. Life on earth is in a process of turbulence at the moment, which also means that our human lives are bound to see many more changes in the nearer future.

Which is why you made sure you would be bringing your Guides with you, before you incarnated into this life.

You and your Guides have agreed to be a team, working together, in this lifetime.

Ideally, this means that you know who your Guides are, you know what their specialties are, and you know how to communicate and collaborate with them in a structured, hands-on, down-to-earth way.

Ideally, you working with your Guides is a co-creation: You present them with what you know about a certain problem you want to solve, you ask them for solutions, and you then receive their answers.

Often, the biggest challenge here is to stay very open to receiving answers from your Guides that may be very different to what you thought those answers were going to be. The second challenge is to then use that surprising input to course-correct what may have been out of alignment before.

So, if you have been trying to solve an issue over the past six months and you haven’t been getting any results, you may have to see if you can improve the ways in which you are working with your Guides, so that they can help you find solutions.

Here are some guiding questions:

  • What does a “successful session” with your Guides look like, in your experience? Meaning, what is your process of asking them for their input, implementing that input, and then seeing results?
  • What do you do when you don’t understand your Guides’ messages? How do you proceed when their answers seem cryptic or vague?
  • How do you ask for clarification when their answers indicate that your assumptions about your original question may not have been correct? What is their concrete way of then helping you to look at the whole situation from a different angle?
  • How are you collaborating with your Guides on refining the big vision for your life? How has that vision changed, over the past six months? How are your Guides guiding you through this change?

Now is the time to get all of your inner wisdom tools in order, and the way you communicate with your Guides is one of the most important elements in your toolbox.

My Sessions – and in particular, my new Session cycle “Your Inner Wisdom System” – are designed to reconnect you with your inner wisdom tools in a powerful way. So if those guiding questions, above, have left you wondering about certain aspects of your collaboration with your Guides, then let’s work on that.

Have a look at the outline of my program, which goes into more detail when it comes to your toolbox, and see if it speaks to you. Here’s the link.

I look forward to connecting with you and with your wonderful team of Guides, soon!

Are you using your Inner Wisdom System?

Many spiritual teachers predicted that the years between 2012 and 2038 would be a transition into a whole new era.

Our consciousness would become more sophisticated, they said. And we would shift into a more ecologically healthy way of being. Life would become more peaceful, we would connect with our soul families, and we would all become the proud owners of some excellent intuitive gifts that would help us create a whole new world built on justice and freedom. 

For a while, I just assumed that this meant that we would get easy access to our intuitive wisdom all by ourselves, and that we would then automatically download our personal goals for this lifetime… and that we would basically all become happier and happier, in the process.

For some of us, this is exactly what has been happening.

For others – and I think this is the majority – it’s been different: We know something needs to change, and so we’ve been practicing Yoga and meditation. We’ve read all the wisdom teachings to get some answers. We might even have gone through some spiritual training or other. And we think we know how to work with our intuition.

But then again, the results we are getting from doing all of that inner work haven’t been what we thought they would be.

Our minds are still stressed, and we can’t really tell if we’re headed in the right direction. Our relationships haven’t improved much. Our intuitive guidance often doesn’t give us any clear answers. And we are not exactly sure how we can keep holding our inner strength when every week, there’s another major social, ecological or personal challenge to be dealt with (COVID-19, neo-fascists trying to undermine democracy, heat waves happening in Siberia, floods all across the globe… the list seems endless).

In other words, life has not magically turned into the love-fest those spiritual teachers saw coming.

Or, rather: Not, yet.

And I think that’s because many spiritual teachings are missing one important step: Customisation.

The times we are living in are an invitation to begin creating a personal relationship with all of these elements that make up your inner wisdom system.

It’s not enough to know that there’s a third eye in you, which, theoretically, can pick up on intuitive guidance. You need to know how, exactly, your inner wisdom is speaking to you, personally, and how you can differentiate between a thought and your intuitive insights. You need to have reference points for what your inner guidance sounds like, and whether it’s coming from your Guides, your soul, your heart, or some other place like the Earth, or your future self.

So, the times we are living in are an invitation to getting some answers to some big questions, such as:

  • What is the concrete mission my soul has envisioned, for this lifetime?
  • Which part of my inner wisdom system can help me make important decisions from a place of integrity and self-knowing, when life is as unpredictable as it is right now?
  • How can I ground my closest relationships in love+trust+respect and transform them into mutually enriching partnerships and friendships that will survive any chaos?
  • And how can I stay connected to my inner guidance, use its wisdom to consciously evolve with a rapidly changing world, and contribute to creating a better life for us all, without burning out in the process?

These are some of the questions you should be asking yourself right now.

I would like to invite you to have a look at my new Session Cycle called Your Inner Wisdom System, and see if you feel that my work could support you in these times. We don’t have to start with a full-on, 12-Session Cycle. A single session or a 4-Session Package can be a powerful beginning.

If you like what you see on my Inner Wisdom System page, meet me for a non-binding Intro Consultation via Zoom, and let’s ask your inner wisdom system to give you some clarifying insights into a particular question that is bugging you, right now. This is how all of my coaching relationships start.

Send me a note via my Contact Page if you are interested, and I’ll send you a link to my online scheduling system, where you can choose an appointment for our Intro Consultation that suits you.

I look forward to working with you!
