On the last night in Pokhara, just before leaving for Kathmandu, I had a terrifying nightmare. I dreamed my own death. Only this was no ordinary nightmare. I call these kinds of dreams, with a very real quality to them 'premonition dreams', as they always manifest in reality the same exact sensation of the dream.
I was blissfully walking to the airport, hand in hand with a man I care about. However when I asked that man for affection, he replied 'no'. I smiled and let it go
Comfort is something we take so easily for granted in our developed cultures. Being used to it, it is easy to forget that before us there came people who walked miles to reach their work or school destinations, who manually did labor that now we get done with machines, who invented the idea that made our life easy today.
Today I woke up on a the flight from Muscat to Munich, after having rested enough. Resting enough: what a foreign concept it had become to me. During my l
After hours walking in the jungle, I had hiked up and down the Himalayan mountains several kilometers, had encountered countless leech attacks, filled my shoes with mud and rain, and the sun was about to set. Finally I saw in a small clearing that seemed a mirage in the endless jungle, a little hut of farmer people. As I got there they took me in their stone and wood hut. They offered me a hot shower. They collect rain water to wash, which they partly boiled and placed in a b
Presumibilmente siamo esseri empatici. L'empatia ci da non solo la capacita' di renderci conto razionalmente del dolore, piacere, o altro stato emotivo dell'altra persona (la cosiddetta 'empatia fredda' o simpatia), ma in piu' ci da la capacita' di immedesimarci in maniera vera e propria nei panni dell'altra persona, ovvero di sentire quello che essa sente, dolore se sente dolore, piacere se sente piacere, o altri stati emotivi specifici. Questo secondo aspetto e' spesso defi
Nepal is exactly the place where I needed to be.
I've been running for the past two years. I started two businesses, I helped people, I wrote a book, I won sports competitions, I traveled, I healed, I meditated, and still I see around me people who are unhappy, still I see frowns instead of smiles. Still I see people who in spite of having everything, are unable to live the moment, to enjoy the beauty that is in the stillness of life.
In Nepal time has stopped. Stillness
Today I decided to share with you a particular shadow work session I did just recently. I thought it might e useful for you to see how the process works in a practical example, so that you know more or less how you can go about it and what to expect.
I'm in Nepal right now, somewhere in the middle between the East and the West. I am not sure where to go from here. I feel stressed at the idea of either going back East or West: I feel like I've been running the past few month
Since I lived in India it happened two times that I ate or smelled food that reminded me exactly of the food I had there. Just one smell, one taste and I was projected back home. The first time I was in a Southern Indian restaurant in Frankfurt, the second time I was in Hong Kong. The smell of the spices projected me back to South India. India was the first country that taught me minimalism and essentialism. It taught me how redundant most of what we have actually is. It also
I have a problem with regards to relationships, that is reflected in the fact that I tend to attract emotionally unavailable people. There are many different types: narcissistic people, victim-mentality people. Lately I've been reflecting on the self-sacrificer.
Sacrifice is an indirect way of obtaining love. It is a manipulation tactic that stems from a belief system that we do not deserve love, and thus we should not get it directly. People who self-sacrifice are usually
Ultimamente sto lavorando su due cose nella mia vita che in apparenza sono del tutto separate, ma come ho scoperto di recente, hanno una fondamentale connessione tra di loro.
Di recente mi sono inbattuta in una difficolta' al quanto curiosa, nel mio hobby in cui presto consulenza a persone con problemi di codipendenza affettiva. Ho notato che sebbene sto avendo molto successo con persone di varie culture, continuo a fallire quando si tratta di aiutare persone di nazionalita
Why do people act immature at times, especially in difficult situations?
When we are born, we are completely free beings. We are fully in alignment with our true self. There is nothing preventing us from being our true self and loving unconditionally. Unfortunately we are currently raised by a less than loving society, in great part due to the outdated parenting system. We often come into this world to parents and caregivers that are less than unconditionally loving towards
