Chaos, Order & Brexit

Earth-Heart-in-space

I’m laying in bed next to my sleeping little toddler girl. I was going to have a little nap but felt strongly inspired to write.

When I woke up this morning the result of the EU Referendum was on my mind. I was surprised finding out that Britain had voted to leave the EU. 95 % of my Facebook feed showed friends voting to Remain. Then I saw on the news that London had 60% votes for remain and 40% leave.

Having a look on my Facebook feed today I predominantly have been seeing angry or fearful posts. Rightfully so.

Altough I feel very surrendered to the whole situation. I believe that this is potentially a big wake up call! It’s time to change our thinking, how we react, our feelings and actions. We can no longer stay in our comfort zones.

I myself was born in South Korea, adopted to Sweden and have been living in London for the past 12-13 years. For a while now I call the world my home, not seperating myself from one place or the other. My faith gave me that gift of perception, but also my journey.

This is not a time to blame, this is a time for UNITY. Let’s stop wasting our time on judging and blaming. Instead it’s time to go deeper within, finding ways of healing the shadow parts of ourselves and taking action for what kind of life we want to live. What kind of world do we want for ourselves and our children?

There are many injustices going on in the world, a lot of pain, anger, sadness and hopelessness.

Let’s not repress these emotions with addictions anymore. Lately I’ve realised that if I can feel other people’s emotions that I meet or pass by, how much are the group consciousness emotions affecting me?

I then have to ask myself if I get affected by the emotions on a larger scale, what can I do to change things?

Although I see myself as always having been a searcher, my path to becoming more awake and conscious started 7 years ago. Back then my life became quiet chaotic, more on the inside than on the outside. It sent me deeper within and made me enquire more about myself and life.

I made it through and what followed was a ‘better’ life. I am more connected with myself and my family. I have a partner that I can share my passions with and a daughter that is happy and healthy. I work with things I’m passionate about and have more freedom and abundance, then ever before.

In the recent  Family Constellations course I attended we explored ‘Chaos and Order’. This is what the facilitator Yishai Gaster says:

“Every order or structure has a limited period in which it is good enough. At the end of this period, chaos will start surfacing usually as tension or crisis, and then we find through a process of chaos what new order unfolds.”

I have seen situations before when Chaos isn’t in fact a ‘bad’ thing even if many people may perceive it that way. Like the ‘Death’ card in Tarot, it’s a time for Change.

Many of us know that big changes are needed to change our planet and the future for our children.

This is from me a reminder to accept what has happened, surrender, then re-asses where we are in our lives and what we can do to ‘Be The Change’!

Many recent events in the Western world have caused people to go deeper into judgment and separation. The world doesn’t need more of that, what it needs is more UNITY and alignment with LOVE.

Let’s change the way we think to change the way we feel. Let’s unite and save our planet so we can create a better world for our children, animals and land.

Our ancestors risked their lives for us at some point further back in time. We have a chance to make the world a better place. Let’s come together to take that chance!!!

Why do we resist healing and ultimate wellbeing?

PicsArt_05-22-10.10.32

Although we’re aiming to feel better we may experience resistance such as delays, cancellations and tiredness due to our own unconscious mind, when we’re about to attend a treatment, workshop or course.

This often happens because of fear of feeling the deeply rooted emotions that often gets released during the healing session. It may also be because on some levels we identity with the emotions or the trauma subconsciously. We may also have an illusion that the emotions serve a purpose.

Many people may be unaware of the emotional baggage they still carry. Often the emotions and negative self-beliefs are ‘stored’ in the subconscious mind as a safety mechanism.

Until the person ‘carrying’ toxic emotions finds ways of releasing/detoxing them, they may experience reoccurring uncomfortable patterns. I prefer to use the term ‘uncomfortable’ since I don’t see them as negative, they are in fact symptoms of something needing our intention.

Toxic emotions such as shame, guilt, anger and sadness may be emotions that you felt when you were younger but not able to express or digest. They can then get stored as negative emotional energy and may manifest as mental or physical illnesses.

Unless you find a way to release this negative emotional charge, it can create blockages that keeps you away from living the life you want.

It can show up as an unhealthy relationship with yourself (destructive behaviour), the relationship with others, how you relate in the world and even as physical illness.

Therefore some Alternative Medical Treatments are recommended as they look at the issue from a Holistic viewpoint. They have used this approach in Eastern Medicine for centuries.

Even if you’ve been through traditional treatments talking through your issue, unless you find a way to ‘dig’ deeper and find emotional release and resolution you might not be able to get to the core of the issue.

It’s when you release emotional charge that stimulates the limbic system in the brain that you may feel a since of peace and lightness.

I myself do clearing of negative emotions, energies and self-beliefs on a monthly basis. One-to-one, through group work in courses, workshops and also by myself.

The changes I’ve been able to make in my life. Living happier, healthier and with closer, more loving relationships is due to all the self-work I’ve done over the past 7-8 years.

It’s an ongoing process which I find really powerful and that I feel very passionate about.

Finding the right Practitioner can be the difference between having a succesful Healing Session or not. I recommend using your gut feeling when choosing someone.

With love,

The Ugly Duckling

il_fullxfull.273244573

I am back to share with you again! Motherhood took over. I will tell you more about that journey another time. Below I will share some quite private feelings and thoughts. I will let myself be vulnerable in this way and maybe some of you will recognise yourself in my story?

Tonight I’m having one of those sleepless nights. My mind is on overload. Not sure how I got reminded of this memory, but I felt like sharing it.

When I was a teenager I felt like an ugly duckling. Not so strange after growing up in a small Swedish city, looking very different from my peers as I was adoped from South Korea. As I grew older I learnt how to appreciate and love myself more.

Alongside looking different I also felt like ‘an ugly duckling on the inside’. I couldn’t get myself to ‘fit in’. After a few years in London I started finding more and more of people that seemed to be from the same planet/species as me. We were able to understand each other.

My intention is to continue being ‘me’, going even deeper within, travelling the world and explore all the gifts this planet has to offer me. Continue learning ancient knowledge and mixing it with new energies/ research/ techniques.

While I continue learning I will keep enjoying sharing and passing on these powerful truths/ practises to whoever is open minded enough to look past their fears/ ego/ mind/ judgment.

Bit by bit I realised the illusion I’d been living in, jumped into a different illusion, ‘spiritual snobbery’ as one of my friends calls it. I had to experience that too, before somewhat stepping out of ‘the matrix’.

Here I am experiencing it all, allowing myself to accept/ feel/ see/ express all of me and my world. In one way I feel re-born. Still finding my feet in this new reality I’ve woken up in. It’s a bit scary, although exciting! A whole new canvas to paint on.

This time around I feel determined, strong, get gentle, calm and vulnerable. As if my inner feminine and masculine have been balanced. I feel deeply rooted in my feminine energy. I have arrived!

I feel like I don’t have to go to war to get what’s mine or to protect myself. I can dance and just be who I am and everything else will fall in place.

What I’ve done to change my life

Since my last post where I felt so determined to change I’ve been able to action a few things.
 
• I’ve had an Intuitive Coaching session where I got a wider understanding for potential blockages and what I can do to move past them. (With Matt Taylor)
 
• I booked a 3-day workshop in July learning about “Inner Sound & Voice”. (With Jill Purce)
 
• I also booked a week long retreat for this month, in Glastonbury “Healing Family & Ancestors – Ritual & Resonance”. (With Jill Purce)
 
• I went to a Fitness class with Marc Alamara at SkillTown a few days ago. His classes are intense but really good.
 
• I booked a swap with my friend Carolina Holzmeister and will receive a Full Body Massage in exchange for one of my modalities.
 
• I’ve been able to stay on top of replies in all shapes and forms much better than in the past.
 
There has possibly been more changes as well but these are the bigger changes I’ve made.
 
The focus for this week is my diet, exercise & stretching, clearing space at home, continue with a minimum of one blog post a week and getting myself started on a new project.
 
The picture above was taken by Aliona Adrianova about a week ago. It’s one of my new head shots that represents ‘the new me’.
 
…and more is coming!

Life Changes – Transformation

image

I woke up today and felt a bit anxious, a bit heavy. As if my awareness had shifted to somewhere else, connecting with the feeling of being a seed, underneath the ground surface down in the soil.

 
For a while I’ve known that something had to change, my cycle of happiness and peace needed a push. It’s time to get out of my comfort zone again.
 
Leaving a reality that feels good, comfortable, safe, steady…for the unknown – it’s a pretty scary move sometimes, it can put you out of balance, drag you down and make you feel as if you’d been swept away by a tornado.
 
Sometimes we can be consciously aware that a change has to happen and other times it’s the calling from our heart.
 
This is a bit of both.
 
Only this time everything feels more intense, more enhanced. I feel as if many tests, blockages, a big resistance are in my way. It feels a bit like gambling all my money on ‘one horse’. Scary as shit! If my life was a computer game, then what I’m going through right now would be the part where you meet the big boss, the final level.
 
I sometimes freeze, can’t do anything. My mind & body just goes numb, no flow of energy.
 
I have a big sense of where I’m going but the fear has been strong.
 
By writing this post I’m letting my intention go public. I’ve had enough! I’m doing it! I’m completely letting go!
This is my time to shine. I’m going for it. Nothing can stop me. Over the next few weeks I’ll keep you updated with what changes I’ve made in my life in order to get through this. So I can live even more of the life of my dreams.
 
Wish me luck!

 

Trust

Here’s to people that has experienced a close friend, family member or partner that’s broken the bond of trust in their relationship:

“What we don’t know can not hurt us, what we make up in our minds can do. The truth can set us free from not knowing. The truth can be manipulated. The only way for us is to trust. I trust & I let go. I trust that I am surrounded only by people that are caring, loving and that can imagine how it would feel to be me – so they will treat me the way they want to be treated. So I can be free to focus on me.”

~ Maria Love Yoo ❤

I’ve had to go through lessons where my trust to others was diminished by their actions. I’ve also learnt by hearing other people’s experiences. I think many people can recognise themselves in this.

People say I might be naive a dreamer…but I say: “I still believe in people that live through their hearts. I believe that people that lives in that way, would have so much empathy for others, that they could never do anything to hurt someone else.”

I hear the same voices of temptations like everyone else, but before I know it I’ve transformed into the other person and can feel how it might feel to be in the other end. To be in the other persons shoes.

The pain I feel, stops me from hurting others.

To trust oneself and to trust others is a big lesson to learn.

Life is our teacher, we ourselves are our saviour.

Every day is a chance for healing, for learning, for being.

When we learn to love ourselves even more, whatever happens, we have our own love, surrounding us and protecting us.

Peace, Love & Light,

~ Maria Love Yoo ❤

How do I change my life?

Maria the Holistic Therapist

I have been working as a Holistic Therapist for about two years now (“on paper”). I learnt tools from courses that gave me certificates so I could officially call myself a Therapist. Massage Therapist, Life Coach, Corporate Coach, Reiki Practitioner, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and Matrix Re-imprinting Practitioner.

My experience as a Therapist stretches even further back than that…many years back. Family and friends naturally trusted me to share their stories, issues, thoughts and experiences.

To add to my list of tools is not only the many years of supporting people by listening to them, courses, classes, books, videos, therapy sessions, etc. It’s mainly living every day. The more we focus on learning from every day life, the more there is to learn and the quicker progress I believe. Some people seem to think that they don’t have time to learn something new or having time to make life changes, but I think the difference between people that move forward in life and people that don’t is ATTITUDE. Many great inspirational personalities highlights the very same…attitude.

 

What made me want to change?

When I was younger there were certain things that I wasn’t happy with. At some point of my awareness throughout my childhood I decided that I wanted a better life for myself. So instead of waiting for that to happen, “I took things in my own hands.”

I’ve always strived to be the best I can be. I’m sure many of you can relate to wanting to prove a point for yourself and sometimes to others as well. I think having that “fire-energy” can help as long as we direct it in a healthy way.

For example: “Being bullied, not listened to or seen – is obviously really painful, but can also give people that extra spark they need in order to manifest a better life for themselves.”

We can choose to stay victims and blame others for our misfortune or we can take responsibility by taking action towards Positive Life Changes.

 

How can I make Positive Life Changes?

No one can tell you what the right combination of actions for you would be in order to find more Happiness & Love. We can listen to other people, try things they’ve tried and continue searching for years and years without really getting there. I myself have been and am a “Searcher” – always interested in learning more about myself and the world. I recommend to find time for yourself  so you can hear your inner voice. I believe that we have all the answers for ourselves but of course can benefit from other sources of wisdom.

“When you have the desire to change and become more aware about yourself and the world around you – your world re-arranges itself to assist you” ~ Maria Love Yoo

So, the first step is to admit that there’s circumstances that you would like to change in your life. Then you might realise that it can be challenging to change circumstances and before you know it – even though it can be hard for some people to admit – you may realise The Power of Changing Yourself!

 

What’s next?

I was looking for answers by myself for a long time and every now and then I would meet other “Searchers”. After many years I’ve finally found a group of people that “speaks the same language”. I recommend to look for other people that shares similar values and interests in life. Many people seem disconnected because they don’t feel that they share these things with that they surround themselves with.

When you’ve made it as far as a decision to change, it’s important to find other people that can help support you and not confuse you or bring you down. There are many groups around where you can meet like minded people and if not, perhaps start your own group?

 

“Looking within”

Ok, so you’ve made a decision to change. You have supporting people around you. You may have tried different therapies already. That is all good. You’ve come far! But, you may still feel stuck.

I believe that it’s important to make changes for mind, body and soul. When you make a few different changes, it’s more powerful then just one or a few. Step, by step or in whatever way feels best for you.

In my own life experience Alternative Therapies have helped me with the biggest changes. Working with my mind has been the most powerful experience. Our mind is so powerful!

The therapies that’s helped me the most and that’s been the most profound are:

  • Life Coaching mixed with Vizualisation
  • Emotional Freedom Technique in combination with Matrix Re-imprinting
  • Family Constellations
  • Theta Healing
  • Re-birthing Therapy (breath work)
  • Meditation
I am a Practitioner of the top two therapies myself and have seen the biggest changes for my clients with those techniques in comparison to massage and reiki.
I feel that the techniques used are important in the healing process but finding a Therapist that you can trust and that you feel good with is essential in order to go deeper within to clear reactions to past traumas. It’s usually the reactions that we have/had to the traumas (physical and psychological) throughout our lives that creates issues and negative patterns in the present. Finding a way to clear the negative reactions by looking at what negative beliefs we made about ourselves or the world in the particular experiences – is what I’ve experienced brings about the biggest most magical changes!
 
 
Go for it!!!
 
You will probably try things that doesn’t work as much as things that will work. Don’t give up. Keep going and the only way is forward. I wish you many adventures and beautiful moments on your journey and remember to share.
 
“Share yourself, share your things and share experiences.”
 
 
Lots of Love,
