“Life consists of complex relationships, and anything communicates. The body and our organs speak. The wind murmurs, the ocean roars, the mountains tell their stories, trees and flowers whisper, and animals talk to us. Stars, suns, cosmic winds, and galaxies communicate, as well as planets and the land under our feet.” – Annemieke Aardoom
The body is an important part of us but is often ignored as we reside in the realms of the thinking mind. The mind constitutes only half of us.
Working with the Inner Child
Working with the inner child is a way to access the unconscious self. The inner child is our innermost, vulnerable self.
The Heart and Heart Meditation
The physical heart has its own intelligence and approximately 40,000 neurons. The heart plays an important role in the communication network
Mindfulness: Mind, Heart, and Body Focused
Our lives are busy and there are many distractions. We are used to living in the virtual reality of our thinking minds, to one degree or another, and we go through life unconsciously.
Dream analysis is a way of working with the unconscious. Dreams originate there and may have important content for us. Dreams may contain important messages: They may bring awareness to things just under the threshold of consciousness.
Two unique worlds come together in a couple, and that can be the cause of some fireworks! We constitute worlds with past traumas, conditioning, and experiences that affect us in the present moment and our relationships.
