Finding Your Purpose

I do not know if this is your current experience too, but the restless or anxious need to find a purpose is what currently affects the lives of many of the people who get in touch with me; they want to give direction to their lives.…

Wise, Wild and Free

I know that what I’m going to say here will make you deeply uncomfortable, but it is a powerful truth that I can’t keep to myself: you will never stop choosing. Every choice you make incorporates consequences for yourself and for others and, as such, you are profoundly responsible for...…

A "less personal" life...

It took me a while to understand the true scope of the philosophical suggestion "do not take everything personally", but the fruitful readings of this past summer have really helped me to put things into a perspective where I understand and I feel able to begin to practice this with discipline.…

Do you deserve it or not?

August, the long-awaited holidays, the holidays you dreamed of for months, are finally here. Soon you will be happily free from the routines that mark your weeks and for a short time you will perhaps feel more alive.…

What a shame...

Do you know which are the most annihilating emotions, emotions that affect your life, from which you try to escape in every way by engineering the most varied and sometimes unconsciously complicated strategies and solutions? Humiliation and shame.…

There is only Life

This spring, spring 2018, is a very different spring for me, and not just for weather that on certain days reminds me more of November than May. This spring has brought me a gift along with a lot of painful and complicated news and forced me to experience unexpected dynamics,...…

I will be happy when...

I will be happy when... I will be happy if... It is so easy to think in these terms. We are so used to thinking this way. We imagine that our happiness will be complete only when and if we reach a certain chosen condition.…

Focus, Focus, Focus...

I’m repeating this because I need to remember it myself. Focus is vital, essential, magical in your life. Without focus your photographs are lacking clarity and perspective, they are flat and confused. The same happens in your life; without focus there is nothing that stands out, your energy is scattered...…

2018 - My warmest wishes to you!

In these final days of the year, it is so easy to ruminate on your expectations for the new year. If you've had a complicated or tiring year, you may be feeding the hope that the next year will be different.…

Self-Worth not just Self-Confidence: that is the key!

You may not believe it, but around 90% of the people who approach me consider themselves to lack confidence in one or more areas of their life. Even people who seem to be really strong and successful, gifted and outspoken.…

Forgiving, it shouldn’t be so difficult, but…

I’m sure forgiving is not a word you like… it makes you feel weak in a world where only the strongest thrive. And I’m sure forgiving is not a verb you like… because you believe that in order to forgive you need to accept what you have been a victim...…

The Paradox of our times

A few days ago, I was watching a movie set in medieval times and I found myself reflecting on something that is constantly in front of my eyes, but perhaps that's why I fail to see it. …

The scent of the right choice

Summer always helps me think because I have found a place where it is easier to put distance between me and the world. It's undeniable that having too much contact with everything is a tremendous temptation and a distraction when you want to keep a narrow focus on something very...…

Choosing to be fully yourself

The mind is marvellous and the mind is marvellously dangerous

I have long been fascinated by the mind. I remember the amazement and wonder I felt when, as a child, I saw Yuri Geller on television bending the spoons with his psychic energy. Although his abilities have since been widely criticised, I have continued in my quest to understand and...…

How to create a life that truly represents you

A few weeks ago, in my last blog, we talked about the sense of responsibility, or rather response-ability. This is a fundamental feature to develop to feel at ease in your life and it becomes easier to understand if I outline what socially relevant lies are preventing you from seeing...…

Becoming Response-Able

My 2017 began with a rather specific question: "how can I become different and thereby create different results in my life?" I chose this question to be the soundtrack of my days. What I have realised over the past weeks though is that most people do not fully understand the...…

What do you do?

Unlearning to learn
