You know you want to change? This hack will get you finally moving! – Integrally Alive Podcast

For change, Intellectually knowing what we need to do is nowhere as powerful as the embodied awareness of what is happening in the moment... When motivation goes from external input to inside out experience!

When I know what I want to change, motivation comes easy… True? The other day I had a conversation with a fellow coach. One of his client knows he needs to change, knows what he needs to change, but can get started, he completely lacks the motivation to do it. It sparked the question: Is knowledge, knowing that you need to change enough to change?

Don’t cage yourself in your age – Integrally Alive Podcast

Age is just a number. And I am the one deciding what that number means for me.

What are you too old for?Where is your mind going when you read that question?Things that you feel you cannot do anymore and you kind of miss them, things that you won’t tolerate anymore in your life?We all react differently to ageing. Certain aspects feel liberating, other limiting… On ageing, birthdays, sailing and liberation… I’m always puzzled by people who explain anything they cannot do by their age.Maybe because very early on in my 20’s, when I was living on my sailing-boat, I often had sailing neighbours waaaay older than me; many people wait until they are retired and kids … Read more

You are the inspiration you are looking for – Integrally Alive Podcast

You are seen... If you knew your choice would inspire thousands of people, how would you live your day today?

What are you the living example for? On sailing, dreams, inspiration, courage, blogs and strangers … When I was a teenager, I had a dream, a very precise and persistent dream, to travel and live on a sailing-boat. It took years, but I eventually did it. I started a blog to keep my family and my friends updated. But it ended up with strangers reading it, and I got some very touching emails of total strangers thanking me to show them it was possible. Seeing my website gave them the permission to dream and the permission to think they weren’t … Read more

Coaching or Therapy… What do you need?- Integrally Alive Podcast

You do from being: Your actions depend on your state, who you are being. ⇒ Change who you are being, what you do, your actions, will adjust accordingly.

You can change today - podcsat 54 Integrally Alive by Claire Wild

If you had only 6 months left to live, what is the most important thing you would change? On change, resistance, motivation, impact… and cancer! One of the most common phrase I hear during my sessions, is:”I know I should…” We often know what we want to change, but knowing is not enough to actually do the changes. Isn’t fascinating to see how in the same situation different persons will react differently? One big reason some decide to, and do change, is that, for whatever reason, they finally see the link between their current situation, and their future situation. (Yeah, … Read more

I love meditating because it trains me to be more present.What about you? Why do you meditate? On meditation, being present, crazy thoughts, wellness, and enlightenment… In a conversation describing his morning routine, a guy told me: “I meditate every day. For ten minutes.
