asked my friend Pema Teeter.

“Can you teach what is natural?” I wonder in reply.

Let’s presume intuition occurs naturally.
We muddle and jeopardize our natural intuition with endless “how to’s” and lists of ways to feel the ways we miss feeling, or know what we don’t dare to understand.
Instead of creating another glittering “How To” or “100,000 Ways to …” by promising Credos, let’s go back to the essence. Let’s bravely jump right in the middle of the flow.

The essence of intuition
is nature

The 5 Element teachings of Chinese medicine teach us that the CHI flow (flow of life, the natural way) will come back naturally by strengthening the element of the mother. The fire nurtures the earth, the earth nurtures metal, the metal nurtures water, the water nurtures wood, the wood nurtures fire. These are the official rules of creating life. But when the circle is disturbed, a cycle of de-naturalization begins and lays the ground for destruction. According to Chinese wisdom, the mother element is the cure for this disruption.

In a similar way, natural cycles of intuition need to be fed and nurtured.

Intuition is often misunderstood as a safety net protecting us from life’s troubles or a follower of the easiest, safest path. No: she is the contrarian. She is the troublemaker.

Intuition lives in the core of change. She is a sea without boundaries, unlimited communication of the creation. She is evolution. She will lead you to power. She is a navigator to the place where your soul wants to meet you.

Courage is the mother
of intuition.
“To know” is the cure.

When returning to the center of ourselves, we know intuition has never left us. The bliss of the moment of recognition will remind us to enter life fully and to dare bravely. We will win and we will lose. We will live in challenging earthly clothes and die in heavenly bliss. The heavens are open when intuition is our passport.

Intuition is remembering.
She knows when to stick it out and when to quit.
She confidently trusts you no matter what.
She knows procrastination is friction against real evolution.
She knows the way through when everything is against it.
She knows.

Intuition knows when to wait and when to push.
She knows when you push without discernment you create deficiency
rather than abundance.
She receives instead of dominates.
She has a hot liaison with miracles.

Intuition perceives truth directly.
She does not believe in needing reasons to justify.
She is independent.
She has immediate comprehension.
She wins competitions of keen and quick insight.
She has quality and values.
She is untangled.
She knows learning is understanding, and knowing is fuel.

Intuition stops the train.

She is a wake up call.
She is pleasure and revolution.
She creates what comes naturally.
She waits.
She refuses to be controlled and loves knocking you out.
She is a master of beauty and seduction.
She likes to live everywhere.

“Can you teach intuition?”
asked my friend Pema Teeter.
I do not think so.

I think we already have a perfect internal guidance system: speak your truth and time will expand. How much is possible if we expand the moment? Nature knows best. Just one moment of shifting is enough to come back to the pool of intuition and miracles.

There is no such thing as a work-free transformation. We must burn to the ground one way or another, and then sit right in the ashes of who we once thought we were and go on from there. We need to act and live and take the risk – and also to fail our intuition. (The only way to learn is to gain confidence that we can always return to intuition when we do fail her.)

Customize your our own credo. Write your own life handbook. Or fake it till you make it!

And for the praise of intuition, Tastasta.

I believe that beauty heals our broken hearts. One moment spent in the presence of true beauty will leave us breathless. We know when beauty is awakened from her sleep: we become real again. The universe has us back.

Beauty is the reason why.

When I opened the humble post package Stefano Bolognesi sent me, I discovered a little book. He had written it secretly and silently. I never even knew he had published something.

Poetry was my life’s savior then and is still today.

It had been a chaotic day. I settled down with this treasure in my hands, slowly swallowing those poems, my medicine. Word. By. Word.

I was breathless, and my heart opened wide to the answer to all of my cravings. I was reading true beauty.

The business of Beauty

I am now preparing to continue my “beautiful book plan” and murmur my mantra:

Beauty is the essence of all business.

I will start in the center, with beauty and focus; I promise myself not to stray. Not to veer off course in attempts to please others, but staying true to allow the real to become reality.

I want to share two of Stefano Bolognesi’s poems with you. They are two delicacies from a box of sweets. Eternity is held between the lines.

It’s where God breathes.

Flowing fires

Love and all Over Again

Love, she said
and all over again
we went back
through schemes
of delightful misdeeds
piles of light.

You for Me

For me you are an altar,
a shrine with pointed
domes and whisperings of dawn
and mosaics and steps
dropping down to the sea.

You are the sun of every tremor,
a forest overflowing
with mistletoe and birds in flight,
leafy branch, nest, wind,
fire of blackberries.

Your body is a fan of moons,
a hallelujah of hands,
you are the gold of the seven volcanoes,
poured and forged for me
like the terraces for the waves,
the darts forever in the crazy
equilibrium of your earth.

You are the clamoring chalice
the shell, the ivory,
the flowing fleet of crocuses
and hellebores that cloud over
the plains in the early warmth.

You are this wonderful display for me,
the perfect route of the swans,
the pure geometry of the swarms of bees,
the visionary journey of every shaman.

with fierce Love

We are proud and excited.
At the beginning of the year God (as I love him) talked to me:

“Do not wait with your visions any longer:
Start to make them real.”

I listened and invited a leader team to realize the first one of my the dreams.

Now we are inviting you!

The Nature Spa is online.

Reserve your place: only 10 women can join us in this extraordinary experience this autumn.

The Nature Spa

Healing of the feminine soul in the hands of nature and creativity

For women by women

15 to 20 September 2012

The Nature Spa is a wild vision for women. We leave behind all restrictive spaces and enter a nomadic world amidst Mother Nature. No walls. Our wild souls yearn for physicalness. We call for freedom of our feminine emotions. The magic of nature blossoms in the space of thoughtfulness.

A nomadic lifestyle honours our roots.

Massage in tents. Herbal bath under the open sky. No matter what kind of weather, we care for you. When it rains, you can cuddle up with warm blankets under the roof of a tent; when the wind blows, you can ride on its waves in the hammock; when the sun shines, your sensitivity awakens. Let us pamper you with culinary and healthy treasures. Worship of the Earth, as gift and spirit. Every layer that falls feels good. Sensuality and detox. Creative space for you and your soul.

3 or 6 days,
for the first time in September 2012.

Peel time free, time for yourself. Allow yourself to return
to a natural rhythm where magic happens.
