The main question for a purposeful life is: what do you intend to achieve, and what is your commitment in accomplishing your purposeful intends? On this path I will support you to define your goals clearly, and to help you find the tools to reach your goals. A profound talk, a listening ear, a mirror..... Counseling: your voice, your personal concerns, are important to be heard in a compassionate and confidential atmosphere. Together we will start this process, and it is essential to be a co-creator of this process. You will be introduced to some meaningful tools and techniques to explore your own life. Counseling sessions can be very liberating and life changing. The door to your personal growth will be opened. With yoga, Pranayama, Reiki energy, massage and Chakra healing we integrate the interpersonal connection between body, mind and spirit. This process results in enhancing the inner harmony. It is known that people, when facing stressful and mental hard times, neglect a healthy lifestyle. A good lifestyle means good nutrition, daily exercise and adequate sleep. I will guide you with my nutritionist and counseling skills through a tailor-made plan. Our aim will be: to reach a healthy relation with food, to do practical and workable exercises and last but not least a consistent sleeping pattern.

One of the pillars of Seligman's WELL-BEING model: Relationships (P.E.R.M.A based on positive psychology).
R – Relationships
Relationships and social connections are crucial to meaningful lives.
Too often, the pursuit of happiness has this Western bias of “individuality” where each person steers their personal happiness ship to shore. This is not realistic. We are social animals who are hard-wired to bond and depend on other humans. Hence, the basic need for healthy relationships.
We thrive on connections that promote love, intimacy, and a strong emotional and physical interaction with other humans. Positive relationships with one’s parents, siblings, peers, coworkers, and friends is a key ingredient to overall joy. Strong relationships also provide support in difficult times that require resilience.family playing board game - PERMA relationships positive psychology
In an interview with Dr. Mitch Printein’s about his course on the psychology of popularity, Printein explained the research on pain centers in the human brain.
Basically, our pain centers become activated when we are at risk of isolation. From an evolutionary perspective, isolation is the worse thing we could do for survival.
These activation centers are like fire alarms in the body, discouraging people to continue feeling this pain, and ideally, reconnect socially with someone or a group. We need, neurologically, to know that we belong to a group; it helps us feel safe and valued, and has for millions of years.

Emotional intelligence is valuable.
In solitude there is healing. Speak to your soul. Listen to your heart. Sometimes in the absence of noise we find the answers.

Once the frog fell in a vessel of the hot water. The Water was still on a gas stove. The frog still did not try to jump out of the vessel, instead just stayed in it. As the temperature of the water started to rise, the frog managed to adjust its body temperature accordingly. As the water started to reach the boiling point, the frog was no longer able to keep up and manage its body temperature according to the water temperature. The frog tried to jump out of the vessel but with water temperature reaching its boiling point, the frog was not able to bear it and couldn’t make it. What was the reason that a frog couldn’t make it? Will you blame the hot water for it?
Moral: The frog couldn’t make it due to its own inability to decide when it had to jump out. We all need to adjust according to the situations but there are times when we need to face the situation and take the appropriate action when we have the strength to do so before it’s too late. Walk out before you need to jump.
Stress management: do not put your entire well-being at risk. Managing stress results in a happier and healthier life. In the end, you will be more resilient when facing challenges on your life path.

To all of you:
A nice writing about who we are and why we are here by Bob Edelstein.
The bottom line is that we exist – we are alive. The challenge of our lives is how do we choose to live our existence and how do we make meaning of our unique, individual journeys.
Here are some essential concepts that describe the perspective:
We stay open to the flow of life, its process and its content. Yet, within this openness, we take stands. We are an active participant in our life’s events. We live in the paradox that nothing is for certain. Yet, we do not let this deter us from consciously deciding our life.
We aspire to live a life of integrity and wholeness. If we feel split and fragmented, we listen and stay open to all of what is going on. We will then start shifting into clarity and a more unified understanding of our concerns and responses.
We believe in possibility and potential. Simultaneously, we acknowledge there are limitations to being human.
We are always both ‘being’ and ‘becoming’.
We are connected to the world, and everyone and everything in it. When we heal some of our pain, we heal some of the world’s pain. When we focus on healing some of the world’s pain, we are healing some of our own pain. We know that we are not separate from anyone or anything.
We believe there is something greater than ourselves. There is something greater than our personality or ego that it is important to stay open to.
We aspire to be open-hearted and clear-minded. We aspire to love every human being for all of who they are — all of their struggles and successes, all of their joys and pains. We aspire to love ourselves in the same way.
We intend to live in the present moment, for it is what we have. In this present moment, the past and future are embodied. We want to be conscious of how we feel, what we think, and how we act in the present moment. This makes life vital.
We intend to act from our authentic core. We believe that as human beings, if supported to be our authentic selves, we will ultimately act in the best interests of self, each other, our community, and the planet as a whole.
We intend to have relationships of honesty, openness, and mutuality. With this attitude, we believe fresh discoveries will be made, deepening will occur, and intimacy will happen.
We endeavor to embrace and honor our shadow-self as a valid part of ourselves. We explore and understand our shadow-self in an accepting, integrated, holistic way. We acknowledge that our shadow-self is an integral part of our human condition and take responsibility for it.
We believe that human beings are innately good. However, they need to explore and heal their wounds in order to actualize their goodness.
We believe life is an ongoing learning process. There are always further discoveries we can make about ourselves and the world. We are always evolving.
We believe we are constantly choosing our existence, whether we recognize that or not. We are the authors of our own life.
I hope these concepts will provide a better understanding of the Existential-Humanistic perspective. I also hope you can use some of these concepts to enhance your life.
A melting pot.
My wish for 2018 was (is) to get answers on:
Who we are and why are we here….
We are a melting pot of everything what ever happened to us and we identify ourselves with that.
Our concept of our personality is based on:
how we see ourselves, how do we feel about ourselves, how we see ourselves in relation to others, how do we see the world, how do we feel about the world.
Life brought us a lot of beliefs and perceptions. But is this really you?
Our true home is not in the past. Our true home is not in the future. Our true home is in the here and now.
Mindfulness is a tool to calm our mind. It helps us to recognize and connect with the harmony and happiness that are already present in our lives. Often our mind is caught in fears, worries, anger, sorrow, regrets, to do lists… etc. Actually, we are constantly jumping to the future worries or past regrets.
How does it work? While we are aware of our breathing, we connect body and mind in the present moment, without being judgmental. When our “inner talks” stop, we experience the energy of peace. The next step is that we start enjoying the moment of here and now, and the harmony from with-in. When we practice mindfulness, we experience our breathing more naturally.
Benefits of mindfulness:
It boosts our immune system, our concentration, reduces stress, we deal better with emotions, our senses are functioning better, we are able to recognize disturbing thoughts etc.
Mindfulness is also a bridge to meditation.
Some simple mindfulness exercises are:
1. Mindful breathing: Focus on your breath for one minute. Breathe in slowly and effortlessly through your nose and breathe out through your mouth. While doing this purposefully, observe and feel your breath leaving all thoughts behind.
2. Mindful observation: Choose an object from your environment (a flower, an apple, an insect, clouds, a tree etc.) and focus on watching it for a minute or two. Explore the object purposefully and involve all your senses. Concentrate on this as long as you can. This exercise connects us with the beauty of the things we often oversee in our rushing, daily lives.
3. Mindful awareness: This is mindfulness on a deeper level. This exercise cultivates a higher awareness and appreciation of things we take for granted in our daily functioning. It also helps us to recognize negative thoughts, and deal with them in a better way. For example: Think of something that happens every morning when you start the day, like starting your computer in the morning. Stop for a moment and be mindful of what is happening. Your arm moves towards the turn on/off button and your finger executes the turning on action. Now be aware of how your brain is facilitating your arm, hand and finger to execute this action. Think about how your mind opens to absorb the information that will come to you in just some seconds, how your brain is analyzing all these signals, how the information will affect your emotions…etc.
As mentioned before, if we practice mindful awareness on a regular base, we can recognize our negative thoughts and redirect them towards positive thoughts.
Mindfulness helps you to touch the wonders of life in yourself and around you.
