I've always loved hearts. When I was little, every kid used to have a sign in my kindergarten - the heart was mine. It stayed with me ever since.
Last week, I got this beautiful heart shaped candle from a lovely client. I lit it today, and the topic of love appeared. In particular, the topic of loving and accepting ourselves.
A topic that hugely impacted the way I run my business, how I show up professionally, and how I market myself, on social media, and beyond. Love and work, yes they can go hand in hand!
It was a long journey for me, to get to love and accept myself. And I thought I did love and accept myself. I achieved a lot of things, I was successful in the things I did, I was confident, and I was proud of where I got to.
Yet, something was never fulfilling me... Deep inside I felt something was not ok. It seemed like I had to work harder and harder to get the success. Like the more I worked, it was never enough, I was expected to do more. To get the appreciation. To get really, the love I was craving for. It was getting really tiring. But I pushed it away, and found excuses not to really go there.
Until one day, when somehow everything got shaken, broken, and I totally lost my confidence. I was in a stage of my life when I simply couldn't "do things" the way I did before. I couldn't achieve things the way I did anymore. I became a mom. This phase of my life was not about doing things, but rather of letting go and feeling.
It was new. It was foreign territory. I felt stuck and powerless. My dose of appreciation through work, through external things and achievements was not fulfilled anymore. I suddenly found myself in this new space, not validated from the outside, and my cup of self-love that was constantly being filled from the outside was getting emptier and emptier. I was craving it and needing it. But not getting it in the way I knew it worked. And I only knew that way at that time.
It was hard. Challenging. Heartbreaking. I remember one day I was sitting in front of the big mirror, taking up the advice of a professional, to keep looking at myself and tell myself all the things that I loved about myself, that I actually love myself. I did it for weeks, every single day. It didn't work. I was trying to achieve something that deep inside, I didn't believe in. There was no more fake it till you make it. This strategy quickly expired. I got to the point to actually start facing myself.
Motherhood launched me on a journey. That when I can't look for love outside, how can I look within. I went through a lot of techniques, tried a lot of things to help myself. Many things worked, many didn't. But it wasn't till I found ThetaHealing that I could really start experiencing what unconditional love is, what it means to me, and how can I access it without doing anything for it.
This was not conditioned. I didn't have to finally do anything or achieve anything for it. I didn't have to finally work hard for it. Hence the name, unconditional love.
My conscious mind didn't understand this. This is why telling myself that I love myself as I was looking in the mirror didn't work. I just got so angry! Because something in my subconscious didn't believe it. And as science has shown, 90% of everything we do is run by our subconscious.
I had to go to my subconscious to explore what was the belief I had around love, clear out the parts that limited me, and then I could fully believe that I can love and accept myself. Without needing anything or anyone to feel that.
It changed the way I felt about being a mother, and how I related to my child. And it changed the way I felt about the relationship with my mother. It actually started changing every single relationship in my life, including all my work relations, client relations, relations with colleagues, competition, everyone.
It was a beautiful, heartwarming, relieving experience. I know I am loved, and I know I love myself. This is stronger than any confidence I experienced before.
On knowing this, I can now look straight in my eyes in the mirror, and know how it feels to love myself.
Once I tapped into this new feeling, I started noticing differences in how I communicated. If I felt loved, I communicated from a place of fulfilledness, connectedness, I felt more genuine and true to myself. This connected me more with the people I related with. This type of communication, the marketing that comes from this place brought me honest and beautiful conversations, connection time, and also amazing leads, trust, the best business relationships.
If I felt the lack of it, I communicated from a place of scarcity and need. With this feeling, I felt not good enough, inadequate, not worthy, and I also felt bad about promoting myself, my services, communicating about my offerings. Sometimes I would not even want to show up and be around anyone, as I was in pain.
As Mother's Day is coming up, no wonder this topic became active and made me reflect. On sharing this, I feel my journey becomes complete.
As Mother's Day is coming up this weekend in NZ, it is also no coincidence that I chose to hold my first ThetaHealing course on this very weekend. It is my coincidental tribute to motherhood, the celebration of feeling loved, and knowing it is in there, in me, in us, ready to be accessed anytime, unconditionally. And this is of course no coincidence.
I feel grateful. I feel happy. And I wanted to share this because if there is anyone out there who now feels lost and stuck and unfulfilled, not quite getting the self-love like I was, and running into work to feel validated, feel accepted, feel loved, I trust this might give you hope.
That yes, you have it in you, too, and there are ways to find it - whether you are a mom, a dad, a parent-to-be, or a child of a mom and dad.
This is why I am excited to share one way, the ThetaHealing® way, this weekend.❤️
Here is to unconditional love. Would you like to know how it feels to have it, anytime, anywhere? If so, say yes!
When you struggle with something, be it personal or professional, it can be very challenging to put yourself out in the limelight and market yourself.
In fact, it might be the last thing you wanna do. Chances are, you rather hide away, and not let anyone know that you are going through difficulties.
Who here finds it hard to promote themselves and their business? Who here is feeling not so comfortable at all how this whole social media thing works and how to go about it?

On social media and beyond...
What does being social mean? An important question to ask ourselves, especially when it comes to social interactions, and relating with people.
This, of course includes social networking. It also includes using the social media platforms as a tool to connect, build and nurture relationships with others. For business, and of course, not only for business.

There is something about Valentine’s Day that I can connect to how it works with the social media presence, and basically any action I can call in that bases on relating to others... Would you guess it’s all about love?
Our need to be loved, seen, appreciated, valued.
One year ago, we went into lockdown. I remember I was just back from San Diego, from Social Media Marketing World. Full of energy, after a long summer break, realigning my goals, vision.
I knew change was coming for me, and I took some time off to process things and integrate the changes.
3 months passed, I gave myself time. I focused on things that deserved priority and focus. And I felt ready for the “big come back after the break”.
And well, change was just about to start!
So there I was, off to San Diego, and back, with the buzz of the conference, after the break I so needed, so ready to go.
And then, lockdown hit. And it changed everything. Change of plan. Change of life. Change of priorities. Change in everything...
One year passed. So many things happened. Last year was a huge one. My biggest growth, for me, personally, and of course, it had huge impact on my business. It was the biggest growth year for my business, too.
All because of the change. That change. Changes.
So many things happened that at the end of 2020, I felt like I needed another long break to “catch up” with growth, and with myself.
So, I took a long summer break. Again. Then I prolonged it, just like last year.
And so many things happened again.
And it feels like I’m still catching up, and certain things need more time.
So I listen. I tune in. I decide to pull back and take off the pressure.
I am yet to catch up with myself.
3 months passed. And the 4th is coming.
And the flower grows. By itself.
Today, I would like to share with you a vision, my vision - it's going to be a personal one. I'm a little bit shy about it, but nevertheless, I feel it's time to do that.
So, my vision and my goal is to use social media as a very specific tool, as a tool for personal growth and development, and to use it as an opportunity - by using it and through the ways of expressing ourselves on it -, as a tool
I think this is missing very much in our world...
Throwback in my mind to the past few years and the life-changing exploration I went on. This is a very personal post and feels like the perfect time to share it. I’ll trust my gut, however, it still feels a bit scary to own this. Well, it is just the time.
What happens when there's a very painful loss. Unexpected, out of control. Very very hard to believe, and then let go. Nothing to do, no way back. The tree is cut. The crown is gone. It's done. No one believes it can ever live again. Except for one. And then, the magic happens.
Four months later, two new beautiful shoots appear in the sun...
A story of growth. Through expression.
Hi, I'm Bea!
