Create your future

“The experience of the manifestation of your potential”: this is why you are here! I also gave you in my last Blog a few guidelines how to find your potential but I’m still convinced that you better get a specialized coach (like Stien who does Human Design Coaching more info to help you in this process. The next part is to create the future according to your potential. This means that you project your ideas and dreams, which hold the items of your potential into a field in the future. Like I want to be a therapist in 10 years time which is the year 20??. Projecting is in many ways like the old fashioned slideshow. You hold the image in front of a light beam and it is projected onto a screen, which is placed at a distance. So you hold the picture in your mind and visualize it onto your future screen. You create the future field and the (unfilled) path from the present till then. Once you created the field you come back and let the forces do their work.
This might seem a bit all to far fetched for you but through personal experience I know it works. In fact I recently read in the book Interface by Paul Lee (Osteopath DO) that on an embryologic level this is actually exactly what happens. In the book there is a reference to the work of Blechschmidt who is a famous embryologist. It describes by example of the growth of the arm that there is first the creation of a field within the amniotic fluid that has the form of the arm. This is that before the proliferation of the cells an energetic arm is projected, beamed and only then when this has been created the cell proliferation starts to fill the created field. In other words there is first the idea of the arm then the projection of the arm and only then the arm is created by multiplication of the cells (protoplasm).

Idea ¬¬~ blue print of the potential (Mind) precedes the fluid preparation ~ Life Forces (Spirit) after which the structure is formed (Matter) according to the energetic profile.

Therefore the creation of the arm is in complete tune with the Body Mind Spirit concept. But also with the philosophy of the Tao Te Ching which says that Wuji or the non-existence precedes the Youji the existence. One doesn’t have to go so far to find other examples… to build a house, the idea precedes the plan or outline before it can be constructed.

So no more I’ll see what the future brings but create that future

Why am I here? Insight into Soulpurpose.

The question: "Why am I here?" might have come across your mind too like it has in mine. Want to know my insight?

I think the answer lies in your soul purpose... Soul purpose being the reason why you are here! No I'm not trying to be funny. You ask the question why am I... soul purpose says why you are: Am I - You are. So by finding out soul purpose you'll get the answer an soul purpose is not really that difficult to find! You just have to ask yourself a few pertinent questions that give you insight into your potential. What makes you - you.

Potential is for everyone different , it can have the same ingredients but the combination of it is always a unique code. Parts of potential can already be manifested others lie dormant within us always ready to be found. To give you an example Luke Skywalker (Star Wars) had the potential of being a Jedi but until Obi One thought him the use of it was dormant. As soon as Luke started the training it felt like it was a homecoming and he demonstrated an easyness to learn it. This is the key... potentials are felt like you've always known them once you're starting to familiarize yourself with them. Potentials have also manifested themselves during your lifetime and most of the time you would have felt ONE, on top of the world, in your element when it manifested itself. I, for example organized many years ago a wine appreciation course: How to taste wine. I made a booklet with images (graphic design), I created a one hour lecture (research), organized get togethers style tupperare parties where I would then give my lecture and then guided the participants into a two hour tasting (teacher). On every part of the way I was in my element... I just loved the whole process till the end and the most amazing part was that giving a lecture like that to a group of people even though I had never done it was like second nature. I was structured, to the point and people hung to my every word. Even years later I was approached by someone who said how wonderful she had found the evening I had organized. These moments were when I was unknowingly manifesting my potential. Another example and this one I was already manifesting since I was a kid (but never paid any attention to it) was that I just loved given people a shoulder massage. I had no clue what I was doing but the reaction was always the same people loved it. Yes you can say but people always like that and maybe true but not everyone does it... does it from instinct and likes to do it...
So what have you done and felt that you were ONE? That you were doing something that made you feel fantastic? What element exactly made it just that special? Analyze it and see what potential lies in it... Are you working with that potential? Are you creating someting with the combination of potentials? What can you do with it? You might need to go back to school (like I did to become an osteopath)
Now to come back to our quest: Why are you here? The answer surely must ly in the experience of the manifestation of your potential - soulpurpose. And know you might not know what that experience is... But this is why you are here, to bring, manifest your potential into this life... To pick up your purpose in the great scheme of Life, the World, the Universe...

I was looking on a website called The Daily Galaxy (looking for a good picture of a revolving cosmos) when I stumbled on a picture of a temporal bone (left).. wondering what it was doing there I read the title and it said Antarctica!!! Antarctica looks like this? Further research on Google confirmed this... amazing... I just added a picture of a real left temporal bone to illustrate my surprise.

No... beaten around the Bush

I read somewhere that we shouldn’t neglect the positive side of 8 years George W. Bush. Two examples only because of the Bush policies of warmongering the Peace Movement has come out of their hibernation… Second example if there hadn’t been a Bush administration with all its faults… no Barrak Hussein Obama could emerge as President Elect! I leave to you to fill in the gaps why…

Pro Action Café for therapists in Brussels

Now here is something I'm all excited about a pro action café for therapists based in Brussels. The idea stemmed from a long yearning to meet other professionals in the field of health care to share experiences and good practice ideas. As 'independants' we are most of the time working alone, our marketing we do by ourselves... but does it have to be that way?
So to continue my search of how can I make a change (see last blog) the idea re-emerged to organize a get together and go a step further then just to share experiences but also to put a few pertinent questions forward on which we can put our collective intelligence towards and see what answers emerge... questions on marketing, how we can profile ourselves in times of economic crisis (time when people can use us more to relax and re-focus but usually we're the first ones the be scrapped to cut costs) but also on what is our ecological footprint as therapist and how can we reduce it.
All questions that need answers now as change is all around and more around the corner. The event will take place on the 26 of November and I'm sure a blog will appear in the days afterwards with some insights.

My Ecological Footprint

I attended last week a conference by Guibert de Marmol with as a theme: “Seul la metamorphose de l’homme peut engendrer la metamorphose du monde.” A very interesting and direct message was given to the 150 or so business men... ‘You have a ecological responsibility’ and it is NOW that you must act. That was clear... Now, I’m only running a small practice but still I too have a responsibility... so where is it that I leave my trace, what is my professional CO2 footprint? I don’t use that many products except for towels. Cotton towels... and didn’t I read somewhere:

When produced with conventional agricultural practices, cotton generally requires the use of substantial amounts of fertilisers and pesticides.

Globally, cotton accounts for 11% of all pesticides used each year, even though the area of production is only 2.4% of the world’s arable land.

With regard to the subset of insecticides, cotton producers use 25% of all insecticides used each year. In developing countries, estimates suggest that half of the total pesticides used on all crops are applied to cotton.

Forty-six insecticides and acaricides (compounds used to control mites and ticks) comprise 90% of the total volume of all pesticides used on cotton. Five of these are classified as extremely hazardous, 8 as highly hazardous, and 20 are moderately hazardous (Soth 1999).

So what are the alternatives... Bamboo! Time to get in contact with Nick from Mobboa. A Belgian bases online shop which sells Bamboo bassed textiles. I had his details from Simone ( ) and always wanted to contact him to get some more information but had pushed it always forward and eventually forgotten... the conference however said act now... so I did.

Very interesting... and no the textiles aren’t made of 100% bamboo... but at least most of it is... this is a start... and no the cotton isn’t bio-cotton... and some of the processes needed to liberate the bamboo fibers still needs chemicals but it is a start and has in the long run an positive impact (read his website). Also the more we change towards the better alternative... the more funds are available to develop new techniques to do even better (enzymatic approaches to get to the bamboo fibers exist but are still too expensive) ... So my resolution the next towels I need will be from bamboo... which are also softer and more water absorbable then cotton... great!
