My greatest source of inspiration are children.
I find it quite remarkable what we can learn from children.
It is fascinating to see how wise they are and how they try to convey their wisdom in their own childlike way. They do this by letting their feelings and emotions speak for them and to hold a mirror up to us this way. Unfortunately this is not always accurately interpreted in our society with the result that children are rejected and start to doubt their own feelings. Because when you are put in a box that doesn't feel right, but is socially accepted, then there must be something wrong with you.
This teaches children to no longer trust their own feelings and chances are that they lose touch with their "inner Self. Their balance is disrupted causing them to struggle to ground themselves and thus spend 'much time inside their heads'. They are open to all kinds of stimuli due to their high level of consciousness. They easily absorb energies from others because they are not relying on their own strength. They often have deep questions about life. Finding answers to these life’s questions can be a long search that drags on as they grow up, with related consequences such as:
- Concentration problems
- Problems with social contacts (connection)
- Learning problems
- Anti-social/irresponsible behaviour
- Alcohol abuse
- Drug abuse
Children are still pure enough to very easily feel the connection with themselves. The older they are and the more they are connected with their society, the higher the chances are that they will have difficulty in staying connected to themselves.
Therefore my passion is to:
- Teach children to strengthen their contact with their emotional and feelings world, so that they can maintain their strength in a natural way and balance their own lives and their environment.
- Provide adults who have lost touch with themselves with insight, and to reconnect them with their inner world.
When children are well connected to themselves and their surroundings from a young age, the number of psychological complaints will decrease dramatically.
