New year greetings

I would like to quote here some words by Abraham through Hicks
I do this, because I know from own experience this to be so very true.
With the very best wishes for the coming year of 2013

"If you had one goal, and that was to feel good, you would never again need to hear another word from anyone. You would live successfully and happily and in a way of fulfilling your life's purpose ever after"

Wow, I'd say : GO FOR IT!

I wish to share with you a few wise words by a great inspirer and teacher, Rudolf Steiner.

We must eradicate from the soul
All fear and terror of what
Comes toward us out of the future.
We must think only, that whatever
Comes is given to us by
A world direction full of purpose.
It is part of what we must learn in this age,
Namely to live out of pure trust.
Trust in the ever present help of the spirtiual world.
Truly nothing else will do,
If our courage is not to fail us.
Let us discipline our will and
Let us seek the awakening within ourselves,
Every morning and every evening.

within and without

By observing the changing seasons, the shifting clouds, and the ever creative dance of plants and animals, we can recognize our own essential nature in the rhythms of outer nature. We create a changing world inside ourselves in order to begin to understand the world outside" Denis Klocheck

To just be.....

To strive for nothing-wait in peaceful stillness, one's inner being filled with expectation......
( from R.Steiner's drama "The Soul's Awakening")

Wise Words...

Something to think about……

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our Light,not our darkness,that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the Glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our Light shine,
We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.

It is comprised of two components: art and psychology.
Together these components provide
a powerful alternative to typical conversational therapy,
encouragement for clients to re-discover and empower their own unique individuality and cope with emotional or psychological issues

Who benefits?
Clients who do not have artistic experience benefit from the creative process. Previous experience with artistic activities is not required, even the client who thinks he/she can only draw “stick people” is a perfectly suitable candidate. It is the activity of the art making that has the therapeutic effect; the end product is of far lesser importance. This therapy is very beneficial for situations and issues where words fall short and the clients cannot express what is in their heart and mind.

What will be done?
The core modalities of artistic therapy are watercolour painting, drawing with pastels and black and white pencils, and clay modeling. Incorporated in the process are a broad range of creative activities, such as journaling; story writing and telling; relaxation exercises; poetry; geometric form drawing; visualization, and biography work.

Sessions for individuals are 1 to 11/2 hours in duration.
Group sessions are two hours in duration. Group sizes range from four to eight participants.

What are the benefits?
By providing a safe and non-threatening environment, the artistic therapist invites the individual to express their feelings through a variety of art media. Emphasis is placed on the individual who is encouraged to empower him/herself through the self-exploration and self-interpretation of their own art. The artwork can be spontaneous but may also be directed by the therapist. Through the art process, individuals can often approach difficult issues and convey a message much clearer and safer than with words. The art product serves as a record of these events, which the individual can later reflect on and eventually understand with greater clarity.


USUI REIKI is an ancient hands-on healing art that intentionally channels Ki energy to promote balance and well being. It is a practical hands-on treatment, which activates the body’s natural healing process.

What can Reiki do for me?

Reiki can increase a sense of peace and well being, and reduce stress
Reiki works on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels
Reiki can reduce pain
Reiki can release energy blocks on all levels
Reiki changes unwanted habits and patterns in your life
Reiki accelerates the body’s natural healing qualities
Reiki is beneficial when used with medical or other health procedures

How is a Reiki session performed?

Typically a Reiki treatment takes 30-90 minutes. The client sits or lies comfortably, fully clothed. The practitioner places her hands on or slightly above the client’s body, using 12-15 different hand positions.

How many sessions do I need?

Individuals are unique, and so is their capacity to heal. Some people require only one or two sessions, while others need quite a few before they notice anything.
If you are interested in seeing what Reiki can do for you then just take one or two sessions.

Go placidly amid noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others,
even to the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery.
but let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals,
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.Strive to be happy.

Max Ehrmann

a touch of spring

The cold winter has gone
The air becomes mild and soft
And it is as though the bright sun
Smiles at us directly.

When the Soul listens....

When the Soul listens, it already speaks a language that lives.
The softest of whispers have language and meaning:
Leaves in the trees chattering with one another,
Currents in the streams,
Clapping loudly and in agreement,
Wind and rain and clouds,
Whisper of God’s holy feet,
Speaking and revealing
The deep hidden Word so sweet,
When the Soul listens….

Guido Gezelle

Art does not reflect the visible, art makes visible the invisible.
(Paul Klee)

Saturday, February 11, 2012


The cold that wants to make us small and narrow
makes us shrink and crawl away.

This is the time of the mysterious germinating,
of the rising light.

Increasing glow and appearance
In the hidden places
already present.

Grief is something very rich.
Grieving for the death of a loved one
Can make you tender and loving
Mellow and living in the memory
Of times shared

You look at your aging hands
And it doesn’t matter anymore
That they look older than yesterday
And it does not make you frightened anymore
That they tell you, you are growing closer to dying

You would love to be with your loved ones
In the land of the dead, in the here after
And yet you don’t mind to be here
Where everything that mother earth gives
Is so extremely wise and beautiful

on time

And an astronomer said, Master, what of
And he answered:
You would measure time the measureless and
the immeasurable.
You would adjust your conduct and even direct
the course of your spirit according to hours and seasons.
Of time you would make a stream upon whose
bank you would sit and watch its flowing.

Yet the timeless in you is aware of life’s time-
And knows that yesterday is but today’s memory
and tomorrow is today’s dream.
And that that which sings and contemplates in
you is still dwelling within the bounds of that first
moment which scattered the stars into space.
Who among you does not feel that his power
to love is boundless?
And yet who does not feel that very love,
though boundless, encompassed within the centre
of his being, and moving not from love thought
to love thought, nor from love deeds to other
love deeds?
And is not time even as love is, undivided and

But if in your thought you must measure time
into seasons, let each season encircle all the other
And let today embrace the past with remembrance
and the future with longing.

Kahlil Gibran

watch your thoughts...

Watch your thoughts...
they become your words
Watch your words...
they become your actions
Watch your actions...
they become your habits
Watch your habits...
they become your character...
Watch your character...
it becomes your destiny.
