I don’t need you (to)

Long time no speak, happy to be back and wising you All a lovely 2018!

Please see below a poem and a few quotes from Rune Lazuli, a young female poet whose words go straight to my heart, she is so inspiring and I love her bitter sweet, authentic style. She is on Instagram and Facebook. You may want to check out her work!

I don’t need you (to)

I don’t need you to be perfect

I find it sexy when you do not know

How to answer my stubborn questions

I find it charming when you doubt

And show your scars

I don’t want long-term promises

Or big beautiful words

I want patience

I want presence

I want prayer

I want commitment to here and now

And authentic joyful

Bitter-sweet chaos

I don’t search for a perfect equation

I accept uncertainty

Provided that there is aliveness

That there is movement

That there is total acceptance

And an open heart, especially when it hurts

I want us to blossom somewhere

In between right or wrong

Black or white

In the graceful clumsy dance

Of two souls

Who accidentally looked into each other’s eyes

***

“Your strength is measured in your ability to smile.” ~ Rune Lazuli

 

“To be a poet is to be wildly vulnerable.

It is to comfortably reveal your most violent scars.”

Rune Lazuli

 

“The way in which you choose to heal is beautiful.” ~ Rune Lazuli

“We are the granddaughters of the witches they were not able to burn.” ~ Unknown

To finish with style, one of my favourite songs ever, enjoy! 😉

Where I come from (!!)

“You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself.” ~ Alan Alda

My home city – Warsaw. Poland.
To everyone who has ever left something dear to their heart

I welcomed your first scream
First breath
First look into your parents’ eyes
Filled with joy and wonder
I taught you how to write, read and count (on yourself)
I nourished you and sang you sweet lullabies
So that you could enter the kingdom of colourful soft dreams
You grew beautifully under my wings
You fell in love for the first time
You suffered and became stronger
You discovered deep blue sea and enjoyed its powerful fresh waves
You looked in awe at the most magnificent
Mountains covered with vibrant autumn leaves
I offered you your first job opportunity
And put excellent teachers on your path
Who ignited passion for foreign lands and languages

***
And then you abandoned us
To pursue joy abroad
You betrayed both your ancestors and I
You left your parents’ comfortable home
And were gone, once and for all
Into the wild and gorgeous (oh là là) land
“I am sorry” – you say somewhat sad
Even though you owe me every-single-thing
And will never repay your debts
My little sweetheart
As long as there is spark in your eyes
And fire in your belly
As long as you love intensely
And carry me in your heart
With humble gratitude
You have my blessings
I gave you roots and wings
So please use both wisely
And travel foolishly if this is your soul’s calling
Remember to call your parents
Not only when you are lost or sad
You naughty nomadic curious spirit

***
I will always be there for you
Like an old beautiful peaceful tree
You are welcome any time
To rest in my arms and whisper your stories
With your funny foreign accent and weird wording

Love,
Pau-land

Bittersweet transitions

“To exist is to dare to throw oneself into the world.” ~ Simone de Beauvoir

Dears,

Life is seasonal, impermanent and unpredictable. Simple and obvious, yet not always easy! I wrote this poem some time ago, while I was going through a transition phase. Back to square one: more changes are ahead of me! I feel happy-sad, grateful and curious. I trust that life will bring me more beautiful surprises and that the best is yet to come. Or rather: the best and only way is to enjoy here and now to the fullest, until you feel the urge to move again. It is like a dance, shall we? 😀

Love,
Pau

“I love rainstorms… the thunder, lightning, wind, all of it. So much going on at once, so many emotions… just like me.” ~ April Mae Monterrosa

***

In between moments

When you leave xyz behind
Saying “merde” and “merci”
(or the other way round)
And slowly but surely
You open the door
To the wild emptiness
Where there is no thing
Only nothing
Pure being
No projects, no intention, no tension
Joyful, unpredictable NOW
Some wishes and hopes
Loosely attached to your open heart
You let yourself be burned
By the caring transition fire
And then you allow the fresh shower of sorrow
To cool you down a little
You clean, declutter and surrender
You have no choice
But to jump in trust
Eyes wide open
You are ready
To let the old go
And slowly let the new
Sink in nicely
You can rest now
And have a soft
(Or a hard) drink*
You simply are
Experiencing, expressing and allowing
LIFE
Cheers!

Party time !!

Dears,

It has been a long time, since my last article!  I wish I had something witty, wise and important to say, but this is it! Hope you will enjoy! 🙂

If it does not match how you presently feel, especially, if you are going through a tough challenge, I am with you, you have my full support.

I am simply sharing my current experience. Expressing my feelings nourishes my soul, makes me joyful and brings me peace.. 🙂

Thank you for passing by.

Love,

Pau

« The road to enlightenment is long and difficult, and you should try not to forget snacks and magazines. »  ~ Anne Lamott

Party time

What if life was a big joke?

(Be aware – Big Brother is watching you)

What if God had sense of humour?

What if you had a starring role in a comedy movie?

So let’s playfully play fools

And with a light-open heart

Cherish each moment

Let’s pretend we know the script

Let’s have principles and then break all the rules

Let’s boldly play with fate

Have both fun and faith

With a peaceful pinch of craziness

(It is vital for your mental health)

Show must go on so let’s go baby

Put on your best suit and let’s dance

It is your surprise party

It is your stage-time

The audience is waiting

The music is playing

If you feel nervous

Follow my advice

Get a little tipsy or better – really drunk

I promise, it is worth trying

(In case you have never done it)

At some point, by magic

You will start giggling

Without being able to stop

Your laughter will get louder and louder

And will spread like a wildfire

Gently dissolving every obstacle on its way

***

Finally, one day you will die quietly

You laughed and you loved

It is a happy-sweet-predictable-end

We are all the same

Aren’t we?

 ***

***

Please find below a lovely video from one of my dear masters – Mooji. I love his warm, cheerful energy. Relax, this is not too serious, just enjoy the laughter! Watch out, it is contagious! 🙂

Interview avec Youmna Tarazi, accompagnante en image de soi et cohérence visuelle – retrouver sa puissance grâce aux vêtements

« Le Chemin est une alchimie du temps sur l’âme. » ~ Jean-Christophe Rufin

J’ai rencontré Youmna lors d’un stage mené par Isabelle Padovani à Paris. J’ai tout de suite apprécié son indépendance, son ambition et sa maturité.

Originaire du Liban, elle décide de s’installer à Paris pour ensuite se lancer dans le conseil en image et cohérence visuelle. Il ne s’agit pas d’un simple relooking, mais plutôt d’un travail en profondeur, qui touche à l’identité. Le vêtement devient alors un outil de connaissance de soi, qui rend visible notre beauté intérieure. Loin d’être superficiel, l’habit (choisi en conscience !) nous connecte à nos ressources, notre originalité et notre puissance.

Youmna réalise aussi son rêve d’enfant : elle écrit et interprète un spectacle intitulé « Pourquoi les Anges s’habillent en blanc ? ». Elle y parle de son sujet de prédilection : les vêtements. En dévoilant quelques pièces essentielles à sa garde-robe personnelle, Youmna encourage le spectateur à réfléchir sur son identité, son rapport au corps et à lui-même.

Appel à candidatures ! Youmna cherche un metteur en scène expérimenté (femme ou homme) afin de rendre son spectacle encore plus percutant. Son rêve est aussi de créer sa propre marque de vêtements et de révolutionner l’industrie de la mode, bref : un vaste programme, je vous laisse découvrir la vidéo !

Voici la trame de l’entretien :

  1. Quel est ton métier, quels produits / services offres-tu et à qui ?
  2. Comment tu as trouvé ta voie / ta place (sur le marché du travail, mais pas uniquement) ?
  3. Comment tu t’es lancée en tant qu’indépendante ?
  4. L’identité vestimentaire – de quoi il s’agit ?
  5. Pourquoi nous ressentons le besoin de faire le tri et comment nous y prendre ?
  6. Quelques mauvaises raisons de garder un vêtement.
  7. Comment retrouver sa puissance, surtout en tant que femme (c’est valable pour les hommes aussi !) ?
  8. Comment nous connecter à notre ressenti corporel ? Comment aligner notre corps physique (la lumière / les couleurs), émotionnel (la densité / les matières) et mental (la forme / la vision du monde)?
  9. Est-ce que, quand nous sommes vraiment « bien dans nos baskets », nous n’avons plus besoin de respecter notre profil vestimentaire ?
  10. Parle-nous de ton spectacle, de ton activité artistique.
  11. Où est-ce que nous pouvons trouver les informations sur tes formations, pour quand les prochaines sessions ?
  12. Un dernier conseil : comment survivre la période des soldes et faire des bons choix ? 🙂

Interview avec Anne Benassouli – thérapeute, formatrice, coach en entreprise

« Je ne serai pas célèbre ou grande. Je continuerai à être aventureuse, à changer, à suivre mon esprit et mes yeux, refusant d’être étiquetée et stéréotypée. L’affaire est de se libérer soi-même : trouver ses vraies dimensions, ne pas se laisser gêner. » ~ Virginia Woolf

  8. Choix d’outil en fonction de la problématique, de l’état de la personne et celui du thérapeute.

  11. Thérapies quantiques : de quoi il s’agit ?
  12. Quelle est la place de la danse dans ta méthode ?
  13. La chromothérapie, l’un de tes nombreux outils : de quoi il s’agit ?
  14. La gratitude : « la capacité de se laisser toucher par ce qui est et d’être reconnaissant de la beauté du monde » – comment la cultiver ?

Let the chaos kiss you

It has been chaotic lately – it continues and it is a surprising feeling to me! 🙂

Best Wishes & as always – much love,

Colorful fractal flame - chaos

“You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

****

Let the chaos kiss you

There is peace in the middle of a war

Calm in the midst of a heavy storm

Silence inside a noisy subway station

There is an eye in the center of a cyclone

Glimmer of hope under a tonne of despair

There is a point

Where chaos meets trust

Confusion confronts clarity

Madness embraces sanity

There is a spot

At the bottom of your broken heart

Where love blossoms again

You remain safe and pure

And the joy is slowly wakening up

After a long night of a lonely cure

My beloved soul

Have faith

There is a place

Where the darkness is no longer afraid of the light

I will meet you there

****

We will laugh out loud

As if it was a good joke

Tomorrow at 9 am sharp

Inch’Allah

Love is in the air ou un bref instant de douceur intense

Le soleil m’a chauffé la tête ces derniers jours. 😀 Ou peut-être j’ai trop travaillé… Who cares ? Love is in the air ! Je vous envoie une tonne d’amour, de douceur et de légèreté dans ce monde qui est si souvent exigeant, violent et beaucoup trop rapide…

delicate pale color watercolor backgroundComme si

S’il te plaît

Regarde-moi, comme si tu m’aimais

Regarde-moi, comme si tu me comprenais

Comme si tu me voyais par-dessous la peau

La surface de mon visage

Regarde-moi droit dans les yeux

Sois présent

Sois doux

Sois toi-même

Ose m’approcher

Ose me toucher vraiment

Ose rentrer sans défoncer la porte de mon cœur

(je suis sensible)

Tu ne vois pas ce qui est marqué

Sur mon front bien blanc ?

« Handle with care »

Regarde-moi avec bienveillance

Regarde-moi au-delà des histoires

Qu’on te raconte

Que tu te racontes

Même celles que je te raconte moi-même

(en exigeant une écoute active et attentive)

Plonge dans la pureté de cet instant

De connexion

Par-dessus les différences

Les attentes et les opinions

Le savoir : vivre, faire ou être

S’il te plaît

Fais-moi un câlin avec tes yeux

Ferme-les et embrasse-moi

Happy young lovers . kiss

A day after – all I need is a hug

I was born 31 years ago. I was born with dreams and high hopes.

I left Poland, my home country, to pursue freedom, love and beautiful adventures.

I found everything I wanted. I am hungry for more.

Then I got sick – not something dramatic, but it keeps me alert to my own physical limits.

I feel vulnerable. I also feel passionate about my job. I want to give it all I have. It looks like it is not sufficient. I feel overwhelmed. I see tired and stressed faces of my colleagues and suppliers. I see a tired face when brushing my teeth in the morning.

I feel frustration, sadness and anger. I feel fear.

***

Yesterday I went to see fireworks with two crazy, lovely Moroccan ladies. (Girls, I love you!)

I liked everything except the crowd. It made me nervous.

I took a taxi to get back home: “Did you hear about the terrorist attack in Nice?”

“Hmm, I beg your pardon? No, I did not (!!??)”. Loads of swear words followed.

I was unable to go to sleep straight. I watched the news. I cried.

“31-year-old French-Tunisian driver killed dozens of people.”

My boyfriend is 35-year-old and originated from Tunisia. He became French a few months ago, a few weeks after I did.

France is not the only country suffering from violence. It is everywhere. It happens all the time.

Millions of people survive each day with less than 2 dollars. I feel lucky to have a flat, a job, something to eat and beautiful people to laugh with.

Today I feel tired, sad, and anxious.

I want the world to be safe, joyful and full of love: for myself, for others, for future generations.

Today I went out to buy a camera to register video interviews with inspiring people.

When I was going back home in the hot and crowded Parisian subway, I could not stop my tears.

I felt embarrassed and pathetic. I looked like a depressed Cocker Spaniel. My big blue eyes got wet and red. I was trying hard to stop crying. I could not. I had nothing to dry up my tears.

A middle aged woman sitting in front of me was searching for something in her bag. Just before I rushed to get out at my stop, she gave me a few paper handkerchiefs.

When I was heading to another subway line, I read on the packaging: “Freshness. Mint.”

It was written in Polish. I was stunned. My compatriot saved me from drowning in my own tears.

***

I have Polish roots, a magic French passport and nothing to declare.

I dream of travelling around the world and giving birth to multicultural crazy babies. 🙂

I have always considered myself ambitious and strong. Today I am vulnerable and I need a hug.

I feel sad and it is fine. I am OK.

My hunger for new experiences got bigger and my joy of being alive deeper.

God bless us all. Tomorrow is another day. With a little luck, we will still be breathing.

As long, as I am breathing, I am safe. And I feel love. Oh yeah!
