Emotional Freedom Technique (eft)
By detaching your sense of self from the voice that feels like being the presenter of the show called “your life” you give it less power. That is as simple as it sounds, although - as the inner critical (or even mean) voice fears for its job which I’m pretty sure you never gave it on purpose! - it might take some time (and practice!) to go from criticizing to supporting. The solution is not to give the nagging inner voice the boot but to give it the chance to become the supportive voice itself.

Teach your inner voice some manners!

I was spending time with ME and sat in the quiet japanese park admiring these stone statues (a poster of my favorite is in my office) for hours. Suddenly it seemed like my favorite Ojizo whispered to me, "Go yukkuri tanoshinde, susunde kudasai!" Meaning, "Go forward leisurely and enjoy your journey." This was the start to create a joyful morning magic that changed everything. Read the whole story about how I started to get up at 4.44 am and what changed for me since then on my blog.

I remember playing school when I was four, telling my mom that I’ll write the number ONE on her “reports” instead of the check-mark, because I didn’t know how to draw that. Her face lit up with a wide smile and she kindly told me that she can show me how to draw a ✔. I felt so accomplished. When my friend, a young primary teacher, asked me if I wanted to accompany them on their school trip when I was 16 I was thrilled. That would be the perfect experience for me to learn more about my dream job Primary School Teacher, Primary Teachers, Singing Games, Professional School, Scout Leader, School Trip, Face Light, Dream Job

My mother told my father in 1975 after they got married that she wanted to go to Iowa city sometime because her beloved Swiss Godfather was living there. My father had the biggest grin on his face when he happily answered: „Well, that is perfect, because I want to work there in the Hydrologic Research lab.“ Off they went on their fun American adventures. My mother, a former primary school teacher, continued her music studies with her flute and my daddy went all in at the lab. Speak Fluent English, Daddy Go
I‘m made in America : ) actually made in Iowa City
