Embrace Change !

People who know me well would probably tell you that I am an optimist and I always try to see the good sides of situations and people. And damn straight, I am! In fact the opposite is quite daunting to me : I strongly believe that focusing on the faults and criticizing people actually bring most people on a downwards and extremely counter productive spiral of thoughts.

I KNOW for having experienced it that Positive and Mindful Thinking can look like a naive and simplistic way of looking at life; but really, for me looking at things negatively make me feel this lady’s frustration !…

(long version : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8cT_Ulmcrys )

Seriously ! Who has the luxury to be able to waste the Power of their Mind to Negativity ? (I will blog about this again in details soon : your thoughts are powerful!)… Me I’d rather spend my energy looking for Beauty. Nevertheless, as I am human, the fact is, some things really trigger me back to the shadows… And one of these triggers is what I call “immobilism” : people who really really don’t want to change anything in their lives, are devoted to the pas, traditions and routines, spend their energy into maintaining and worshiping long gone memories…

Particularly there is one sentence that I hear and really ticks me off : “we always did it like that!”If we don’t try something new, how do we know that there isn’t anything BETTER than what we always did ?  Repeating over and over the same thing “because we always did it like that” is bound to become tedious in the long run, don’t you think ? What was the best way of doing things in the 30s or the 90s is not really adaptable to today’s ways…

I ranted about French people before and here we go again: we are the most complaining and protesting people in the world in my sight and hence we are the most resistant to change ever! As French people, our reputation is that we protest and strike a lot… In France, there are laws from Napoleon’s era which, if the Government dares to want to change, drive everyone in the streets in protest! I am not saying that Laws should all be changed, a lot of the Human Rights are probably the most Universal timeless Laws ever. But do we still need laws that say that “it is forbidden to die on a commune if you don’t have a cemetery plot within the boundaries of that commune” (yes there is a law that says that…!)? And do you really think that, because the status of the Economy 50 years ago made it possible to support and aid people a certain way, it can always remain like that ? The idea that laws and rights are “acquired” forever really makes little sense…

If nothing ever changed, we wouldn’t have evolved from nothingness into an amoeba, then a mammal, then apes, then humans ! Life is CHANGE. Things evolve, this is how Nature works, so we might as well get with the new times! One definition of Death is that there is not more change in our body. Do we really want to accept a static “life” because “we ALWAYS did it like that”?

If nothing ever changed, wouldn’t our lives be boring ? Don’t you actually get the most excited when something new is coming ? I do !

If nothing ever changes, we would not integrate technology in our lives. (I can hear you think about the Amish community, but, no actually Amish are not the most amazing “immobilists” of all times in my books! They just take way longer to embrace new technologies because they spend time evaluating if it’s good for them and the simple life they aspire to, and I respect that deeply. However these very long discussions are because of our ingrained Fear of Change!

And most importantly, if nothing ever changed, we couldn’t welcome Love in our lives. I don’t think there is anything more dramatically shaking in life than falling in Love. But if we are not ready to let go of our habits and routines, Love will more likely not find its place and even more, it will not stay in our lives. Because, no matter how you see it, we need to make compromise in relationships (all of them) and, let’s face it, making compromise involves a change of the way we think.

Furthermore, if we stay the same all our lives, more likely we will have regrets, because we systematically will “live” lives that were not meant to be ours, we derive from the signs and the Path that was designed for us. Someone I call my mentor for this reason, Late Jean-Jacques Mérie, a beautiful and multi-talented being, told me this very little, seemingly insignificant phrase when I was a teenager and it blew my mind and changed the way I saw my life. He said : “In the end of your life, you need to be able to say to yourself : “I did some good to myself!””.

This reminder to avoid having regrets is thoroughly and intrinsically linked with the connection I have with Change. I see change as a passing, an evolution, a transformation. I choose to see Change as a Positive Thing.

The way I look at it is very well summed up by the simple words of Jim Rohn :

I’m not sure why these words made so much sense to me when I first read this, but what I really mean by this is : YOU ARE THE MASTER OF YOUR LIFE, ONLY YOU CAN MAKE IT BETTER! So welcome the Transformations and the Changes in your life with Joy : they might be difficult times but they are Gateways to wonderful new situations !…

I would really like you to comment on this and start discussions : what changed your life ? What brought you to step out of a dark downwards spiral of doubt or depression ?


Get cleaning, Start daring !

Ho’oponopono, in line with the theory that everything is linked and connected, says that whatever happens to us is actually caused by me in the first place.

So let’s all start cleaning ! Clean our life, our thoughts, our actions, our words, our behavior… De-clutter our life from what disconnects us from the Universal Love of the Universe, find our Inner Peace, reconnect with our intuition, with our State of Divinity. Say the mantra today : I love you , I’m sorry, Please forgive me, Thank you. Fill it with intention, believe it!

Joe Vitale is a Ho’oponopono Master taught by Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len. His life is amazing :  Thirty years ago, he was broke, desperate and living on the street. Through a series of odd “coincidences,” he found his inner calling and has gone on to great fame and success, he went from homeless to guru.. His incredible story of using the Law of Attraction and Ho’oponopono in his own life is an inspiration to thousands. He co-wrote Zero Limits and wrote At Zero. Here is a short talk from him about Ho’oponopono:

Try it : It is liberating !This technique changed lives drastically, it will no doubt start changing yours!
Joe Vitale motto is “Aude Aliquid Dignum”, Dare something worthy. What are you going to dare that is worthy today?

Are you following the signs?


Aren’t you sometimes astonished at the coincidences on your path ?

2 days ago, someone I crossed paths with spiked my imagination and left me shivering with admiration and jealousy. He is Finish and was working in Sales in a big corporation, enjoying all modern comfort and living THE LIFE ! (I can hear someone’s “endearment” from here… Sorry, private joke!). Last year he decided to quit, bought surviving equipment and went on a long walking journey, survival style! He got back in touch with me and, without knowing The Celestine Prophecy, by James Redfield is one of my favorite books, he sent me this link : http://www.celestinevision.com/the-12-celestine-insights/

In itself that is already a major coincidence!

Just for the record, he is homeless since June and has never been happier ! He is on a journey to helping and bringing people together and wouldn’t accept anything if given out of pity.

And I have another dear friend who also quit a cushy job this year to open his Healing Center in February.All of these people being pushed and drawn to become Light Workers! I love this. I get a sense of belonging…

This year has brought major transformations in my life. All along my path, everyday, I get to experience the signs and the coincidences that show me that I am on the correct path for me.

You want examples ?

  • I have been drawn to “shine my light” all year but I was really wondering how I was meant to do that. I was guided to become a Meditation Guide (and that is still with me), I started yoga again and really enjoyed it, I received both my first Reiki treatment (I had no idea what that was before) and my Master Kundalini Reiki Atunement in a couple of months, got to experience a bit of my psychic abilities, I was brought into the Angelic world and met my Guides, and I got poked all along to talk more about Ho’oponopono, a bit of this and a bit of that…All along I was fluttering like a butterfly and not finding The One modality I needed to embrace to become a real Healer. I was crying for signs and asking the Universe to tell me what I was supposed to do until one day in October, a Ho’oponopono teacher contacted me out of the blue and told me : “Ho’oponopono is about teaching love, you and anyone can do it and teach it. I decided I wanted to teach it, put a program together and then contacted venues to deliver it. Just do it.” I was shocked by this and thought, well yeah! Then 2 days after I am asked about Ho’oponopono and told that it would be great if an online course existed for it… Fine ! I surrender myself to the Universe! I am now putting together an online course that I would love to launch in the new year. And I don’t have to stop pursuing other modalities and I can keep exploring !
  • Ok want more ?  The other day, I joined to do Tamara Walker’s E-Squared challenge. Part of the second experiment was to count for 24 hours green cars. The minute I decided to start, I look outside my window and what is there ? A green car !
  • Another one : during my first Kundalini Reiki atunement, I saw a big portal radiating rainbow light and a person sitting in meditation. Two of the people, including my soul brother, actually had exactly the same visions !


These coincidences come back in Ho’oponopono : Dr Hew Len says that once we reach a state of zero, we are then open to receive inspiration from the Divine. They often come as this kind of signs. So remove all projections, all “bad memories”, all ego driven thoughts and you will feel the connection to Everything and Everyone, the Omniscience that is what Buddhism describes as a state of Enlightenment… And that all these traditions talk about Synchronicity and signs, isn’t it a coincidence in itself ?…

These are little bits and bobs. Call it coincidences or manifesting, it’s jut coming my way right left and center ! And you know what ? IT FEELS GREAT ! I am so happy and grateful for all I am, what I am becoming and what I am part of right now, I am grinning insanely every day !

What does the Universe tell you to do ? Which coincidences did you experience lately?



Embrace your Unihipili and reconnect with your Joy!

Today, after and amazingly fun weekend full of giggles, I felt drawn to be reminded to connect with your Unihipili, your Inner Child and heal him/her.


You have neglected him/her for too long. It’s time to please allow your Inner Child to come back to you, to be healed, to ask him/her for forgiveness and to let him/her know how much you love him/her.

To help you, I found this beautiful video from one of the Ho’oponopono Masters, Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len :

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HuQcIsQLUA&w=1280&h=720]

Once you have gone through this very emotional and intimate experience, take your Unihipili by the hand and go HAVE FUN !!!! Reconnect with the JOY you felt when you were a Child, connect with the careless giggles, find your innocent mischievous self, do crazy things, jump in puddles, draw a purple and turquoise elephant, see pineapples as potential toys, smile, dance and sing, PLAY and embrace the whole lot of who YOU really are….

Start today to make the world a better place by uplifting your spirit because it all starts with you. Once you’re happy, think happy thoughts and radiate happiness, people around you will join the smiles and experience your happiness. It all starts with you, it all starts with how well you’re connected with your Unihipili.

For me, at first, my Unihipili was really wary and wouldn’t talk to me… But overtime, the wounds scared, the cleaning worked and the relationship was healed. Now we are buddies, she laughs with me, we dance and play, she shows me how to be more spontaneously, I get some lessons from her everyday!

What was your first attempt at talking to your neglected Unihipili ? Please comment

Stop, Look and Go! Embrace the power of Gratitude : it changes everything !


Today, in this Thanksgiving period, we are all reminded of the importance of Gratitude. In my Ho’oponopono practice, the THANK YOU has a special place. It’s often in the end of the mantra. But really, Gratitude is the Beginning of Everything !

Firstly “Thank you,” is a Ho’oponopono cleaning tool that invokes the whole process of repentance, forgiveness, and transmutation, We can be thankful for everyone and everything that crosses our path, even (maybe especially!) those who trigger us or make us upset. Because if we choose to open to the beauty and be grateful for what surrounds us and what we already have, the Beauty and the Love take seeds in our Gratitude and Manifestation germinates from the combination !

In France, we complain a lot. I often say to French people ranting that they need to stop being so French ! Believe it or not, we, the French, are rarely happy and I think it’s because we are seldom grateful… We can complain about everything : a lumpy bed, a sore back, a cold coffee or tea, the weather, the bad manners of others, politics (of course; my pet peeve !), the cost of life, work… the list is endless! But when we learn to truly appreciate what we have been blessed with, the way we see our surroundings changes and our life becomes lighter:

  • Instead of complaining about a lumpy bed, be grateful you have a bed at all, you could be sleeping on the floor in the street, in the cold. Now you feel how lucky you are that you have a bed, don’t you ?
  • Instead of noticing your sore back, be grateful that you can feel your body and that you are alive ! Do you see how blessed you are to be allowed to feel ?
  • Your cold coffee or tea isn’t just that, it’s a blessing that will help you to start your day ! Do you know it’s still working when it’s cold ? Do you feel how lucky you are that you can have a coffee or a tea ?
  • You can hardly change the weather so why complain about it, instead recognize its blessing : it warms you and Mother Earth when it’s warm, it nourishes the grounds when it rains, it helps Nature sleep and restore itself when it freezes. Do you see how being a part of these cycle is a teaching in itself ? Be happy we have seasons for they help us see cycles are beneficial and changes are a good thing! (I will write a blog on that theory of mine soon).
  • Be blessed that you have crossed the path of someone who upset you by his/her bad manners for that was a lesson you might have needed to be reminded of. Don’t you feel lucky that you have been taught manners ?
  • Say Thank You for politics because they are a sign that we have and are forever evolving.
  • Decide the cost of life is a blessing because it challenges you to work harder and better to earn more.
  • And be grateful for work as you are blessed to have a job so you can feel useful !…

Every day we need to be grateful and GIVE THANKS. Make it a habit. This can be applicable to ALL aspects of our life. Furthermore, I choose to be optimistic and grateful because it actually generates more reasons to be grateful for ! Let me explain…

In Japanese language there is a term  : “on”.  The meaning of “on” often includes a sense of gratitude combined with a desire to repay others for what we have been given.  It’s not just that we feel grateful, or that we express our gratitude, but that we actually experience a sincere desire to give something back.  It’s an appreciation that stimulates a sense of obligation, but not an externally imposed obligation, more a sense of obligation that arises naturally within us as we recognize how we have been supported and cared for by others.

And you probably know or have heard of the “Law of Attraction” and “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne: thinking and projecting happy thoughts and intentions give us the power create our Reality and make these happy thoughts happen. And what can be happier than a wholehearted sense of pure and deep Gratitude? I believe and I have received plenty of demonstrations that setting your mind to “Thank You” mode says to the Universe “I already have plenty” and that, funnily enough, triggers the Universe to send more your way ! (Ask me for examples if you want, I can’t quote them all, this post would be way too big).

One of my favorite quote from “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho is : ” Once you make one step towards your dream, the whole Universe conspires to help you.” So if you combine this with the desire to give something back in the Japanese “on”, it all makes sense that the Universe will help us manifest the things we are grateful for. Choosing and developing an attitude and a habit of sincere and “heartfelt” gratitude for your current blessings unleashes the power for manifesting and receiving many more !

I am so grateful today ! I was inspired to write this blog by this dear soul buddies of mine who keep reminding me to slow down, take the time to smell the flowers and absorb !  Many thanks to them both! And I also found inspiration from Brother David Steindl-Rast’s Ted Talk : “Want to be happy? Be grateful !” So as this delightful Benedictine monk says, remember the lesson of when you were a child taught how to cross the street and “Stop, Look and Go!”; set some gratitude reminders on your path and more importantly, start counting your blessings right now…

What are you truly and deeply Grateful for today ?

Share in the comments, make the list long, Really Feel it, and Meditate on it, I am sure you will at least feel happier; and that more things to be grateful for will come your way!
