Who – What – Where and the big Why

Quote

At all times and ages, people have been searching and looking for wisdom, knowledge and help in there struggle with Three Big Questions, which define us:

  • Who are we?
  • Where do we come from?
  • Where do we go?

In the brilliant book #EatPrayLove by #ElizabethGilbert, the search for these three questions are thoroughly investigated. And at the end of the book, our lovely lady lives in Indonesia, and she tells us that everybody just keep her asking these three questions. It is like these three questions are needed to define her, to give her a background. To make sure to put her in the right position upfront them, so everybody can actually see who she is, there in the #focus of the moment.

And that is what our #groundingexercises are always about. To make sure you are just there, in this ongoing spot where future and past melt into the Big Now.

So what does this imply when you move?

If you change your physical position, in other words we say we re-locate or we move abroad, your #grounding changes with you. Your path differs from the one you went before, you walk other soil and you eat other food. You smell others herbs and spices and you are put in a totally different grid as where you came from.

When I moved to Brazil, I noticed what it means: a #Socialconstruction. It is a term I never understood at University. And day two in Brazil my emprugada, the lovely Rosy with her broad smile and warm heart, called me “Donna Grandaõ, uma Sereia”.

In one – ONE – yes just 1 –  Portuguese sentence, my yearlong status changed!

From being a small, chubby, roundbreasted, dark eyed woman to a Tall Lady, no more, even to a mermaid!

Needless to say that it changed something in me as well. And that it did something to my energy.

And now I moved some half year ago to Singapore, I felt a change in social construct again. I am a ‘Ang Mo – Expat Woman’ here – a ‘western woman’. And that made me feel very weary in the beginning. I didn’t feel anything, no male and female energy. No looks, no talks, no words or glimpses. It made me hollow and clueless about e and my boundaries. Like the sea shapes the shore, I needed my counter-energies and people on the street to help define me again. I was lost in orientation in my energy field. I didn’t feel male or female or me, since the grid I was walking in, was so different. 

So what was this biggest difference then?

It felt completely calm here on the streets. No stress. No need for eyes everywhere, on stroller, kids and purse in one time. No checking in on people if there might be a dangerous situation. No attention to check in on your belongings every second of the minute. No worries if your bag is open and not zipped up. No stressed feeling if you just stroll around and end up somewhere you didn’t expect to go.

The word everybody uses here is #safe. And yes, it is safe, no stress in or on the streets. It made me go deep to my roots. I had to learn a complete new way do define my new me – my new Who I am, Where I came from and where I am going.

And the grounding and focus exercises I did daily, helped me so much.

The made my Roots grow strong again. And as our dear Goethe already put it in earlier days: ‘Gebt den Kindern Wurzeln damit sie fliegen können.’ (Give the children roots, to make sure they can fly)

So, now I can fly and I can look from this nice helicopter view, for other lovely expat ladies who want to work on this field. The ‘Who you are, Where you Go, and Where you came from’ quest. Or in one word: the big Why?

I developed an expat program, called #RootzandWingz and I would love to tell you more about if, if you’re interested.

For now: all the best, Kind Hugs,

5 Energy hacks in your pocket you weren’t aware of…

5 Energy hacks in your pocket you weren’t aware of…

Carola Millenaar-Vieregge

During the day you connect and disconnect with people all the time, yes thats energy too. And if you are working in the field of coaching, training, HR businesses…You probably have to deal al lot with all kinds of people and work with them. Ore make them work for you.

Sometimes it is hard to keep your energy levels up right and fresh. So I collected and organized 5 energy hacks for you. You carry them around in your pocket all day and I am pretty sure you weren’t aware of that. So here they come:

 

1)  Your Phone >

Make sure you credit yourself with an app with short meditations to energize and refresh you any moment you are in need of it. I myself am very fond of meditationoasis.com. I like the way the meditations are organised and help met to find quickly what I am in need of. Since they are organised by topic and emotion, it is a very easy way to find the right meditation to use. Furthermore: there are meditations with and without music.

2)  Your Fingertips >

You have 10 incredible little massaging machines with you. One of the favourite exercises I teach my clients is to caress very gently your hairline. Start up front in the middle of your forehead and strike very gentle towards the back of your head. Continue to do so around the line of your ears. You will feel that stress and full feelings in your head release. You can let relaxation in. Make sure you caress really soft. We are used to rub our eyes very hard when we’ve been in a meeting or session where a lot of work and efforts is being accomplished. Remember: energies work on a subtle level. Therefore: be gentle in your touch.

3)  The cap of your lip-gloss / lipstick / pen etcetera.

You can use these caps to do some acupressure in your face – remove eventually glasses 😉 It feels wonderful. You tiptop softly over your eyebrows and under your eyes. Next you massage easy the point in between your eyes. After that follow the line of your bridge and nasal wings. Follow to your upper lip. Tip top also the point where your ears end, in the soft little place. Finish up by gently pressing the middle of your chin. Because the most of these points are related to reflexology – you will feel very refreshed.

4)   Your pocketknife. 

Really? You don’t have one? Get one! It makes that you can eat any fruit you encounter during the day – and that’s like eating a little energy bomb – right? Here you can see how to cut it: how to cut fruit Maybe it’s not possible to have the knife with you all day? How about a knife in your drawer then 😉

5)   Your Wallet. 

Every time you make a payment, you could say a little thank you. For the fact that you pay your bills, that you are part of the working industries. This thank you can remind you of being part of society. Of the fact that you matter. And that you are fulfilling your destiny. Weather it is flipping burgers or being an energetic coach as I am. And if you need to change your work for whatever reason, this thank you could be your reminder to reflect on the wish to take chances and to take your wish for change serious.

Enjoy!
