Define your happiness with flexibility for success – Integrally Alive Podcast


Last week we talked about setting a direction for ourselves in a permaculture way. So now you know where you are going… How will you know you have succeeded? HOW ELSE? Today is all about flexibility to maximize your happiness and success. Recently I was coaching a round of a Mindvalley quest on the human diet and our relationship to food: WildFit. Often participants have a weight-loss goal in joining this program. Sometimes a very specific number of kilos. During the program, invariably, other things happen as well. Their skin and hair get better, they feel less tired, some health … Read more

Automatically create your dreams with your optimized personal ecosystem – Integrally Alive Podcast


So you’ve got goals for this year…How do you know you’re going to achieve them? What would support your journey?What do you need for this goal to become impossible to miss? Let’s see how we can apply permaculture in your life to create an ecosystem supporting your dreams. It all starts with a dream (of sailing the world in my case) When I was a teenage, I had a dream of sailing the world. Now, I was living inland, had sailed just a few times, and didn’t really know if that was actually doable. But I had no doubt I … Read more

Start 2020 strong… Give yourself a break! – Integrally Alive Podcast


How do you know you do need a break? Do you take enough breaks? And how do you come back after a break? One of the most important things with taking breaks, is the timing. Ever heard “You’ll sleep when you’re dead?” Well… That’s exactly the problem: You don’t need sleep when you’re dead, you need it now, to stay alive. And you might be thinking: “But Claire, we can’t always choose!” I know! On how to balance action and rest, how to relax efficiently to be ready for action AND how to apply this to set realistic intention for … Read more

Get unstuck: Drop “Why” – Integrally Alive Podcast


Do you want to know one of the best way to get stuck? Ask: “Why?”. What can you do instead? Good question! 😉 This morning, I felt uninspired. Or rather than uninspired, lots of idea but none looks interesting or inspiring for you. And it felt weird, because I love what I do, I love to share wisdom and tools with you and see how you put it into practice and change your lives. So what do I do with that? I could go into “Why is this happening?”. That would make me explore all the reasons, and keep me … Read more

Lonely yet not alone… How to create deep connection – Integrally Alive Podcast


If I told you I have a trusted source of one of the most potent drugs… It’s free, without nasty side-effects, and vastly available… Would you be interested? And what if I told you that you experienced it at least once in your life, and probably multiple times… Can you guess what I’m talking about? Oxytocin! The “love hormone”, that is released every time we have meaningful interactions with living beings. Meaningful interactions? You can be surrounded by hundred people and still lack connection Being alone and being lonely are two different things.We all experienced that being surrounded by people … Read more

How owning our story sets us free – Integrally Alive Podcast


Is there a story or a situation holding you back from being yourself? Today is all about private speaking and how owning our story, and especially our “one freaking question”, can set us free. For a long time in my life, I had a question I dreaded people would ask me, because I didn’t want to answer. So I would do my best to avoid that question to be asked in the first place. And then when eventually it would come up, I would answer indirectly. I shared in a video about this: my one freaking question (see below). Not … Read more

Can words change your life? – Integrally Alive Podcast


This summer I was at a speaking event, and heard the story of a woman, who shared how she overcame depression and wanting to kill herself. A very brave thing to do, especially on stage; and so needed, too, because the stigma on these topics is literally killing people, who otherwise would speak up and ask for help. So when she sat back, right next to me, I turned to her and thank her for her courage, expressing that I know how difficult it can be to talk about suicide. She looked at me with surprise, and answered that she … Read more

Can you show me the way? What can you be the role-model for? – Integrally Alive Podcast

Can you show me the way? What are you be the role-model for? integrally_alive_podcast 2019_11_13 claire_wild

Who is inspiring you? Who are you inspiring? When I learned Shiatsu (a Japanese bodywork), we used to call my top teacher “Sasaki Sensei”. Sensei wasn’t part of his name, but the Japanese word for “teacher”. This word actually has a more complex meaning than that. Sensei: The person who has walked this path before you. It doesn’t mean s/he is an enlightened master; or a better, or a worse person than you. You might even have walked other path that s/he doesn’t know. But that one, s/he knows; From experience. Not just from books and theory. S/he walked all … Read more

What leader do you choose to be? – Integrally Alive Podcast


What leader do you choose to be? (and, by the way: Do you feel like you are a leader?) Is a question that emerged this summer, when I was offered to write a chapter in the book “Ignite for conscious leaders”. To celebrate the publishing of the book, I’m gifting a 1 on 1 session with me: Answer that question in the FB group, and I’ll pick one. I know you can inspire us, and you can be inspired by the tribe… so it might be you, winning the 1 on 1 session and creating your vision in the world. … Read more

Why you need to do what makes you come alive – Integrally Alive Podcast


How often do you do what makes you come alive? I like to try new things. But some things are so good that I like to repeat them again and again. Like my favorite questions:”What makes you feel alive?” What makes you feel alive? If you’re familiar with the podcast, you will recognize this question: I love it so much, that I used to end every interview of season one with it. And it was beautiful to hear the answers, always different, always inspiring (so much so that I dedicated the last episode of the season to this question alone). … Read more
