I spent several days in the ‘Genius’ table in an Apple Store in LA – my computer had been down for several weeks and was now finally in the hands of an expert (even though I would love to think that I was the genius they referred to when asked to proceed to the Genius table to meet the young Daniel Villegas – after enjoying his professional, patient and kind service and successful assistance I must admit that he was probably the one they referred to by the title Genius;)
Sharing David’s expertise with Kristin Davis we had plenty of time to talk after a short session/reading that only confirmed how wonderful she is as a person and how many talents and facets she possesses. Sitting around waiting for our computers to be treated and cured Kristin shared her passion creating awareness of the potential extinction of elephants as a patron for the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust saving the lives of hundreds of elephants in Kenya alone. She told me that within 10 years the elephants could be extinct if we do not stop the industrialized killing for the sake of money over life. Be aware that if there is no demand, the locals would not kill these precious animals to earn money to survive and thrive.
I was very inspired to hear how she used not only her fame from amongst others the Sex and the City television series and movies (giving a new spark to the friendships of millions of women around the world – friendships that make us laugh, connect to our souls and grand us the strength to continue to make a difference no matter what life brings us) but also Kristin’s skills and scarce time to make a difference like many of her colleagues. Most of you probably saw my post on Facebook about about Matt Damon and his participation in the Ice Bucket Challenge on Facebook for ASL creating awareness and find solutions for his passion to find solutions for the more than 750 million people on our planet living without access to clean water being the co-creater of the organization water.org.
Matt Damon’s Ice Bucket Challenge with a twist of awareness (click on the picture):
We do not need to be famous to make a difference – in future posts I will share some examples of some exceptional projects helping people around the world created by inspiring people I have met on the first part of my Treasure – Change the World Tour, amongst other a project in Africa and in Haiti supported by two strong woman from Cleveland and Ojai, California. There are so many people who use their time and resources to do good, to care and create a positive change for those in need around the world. I would like to be a catalyst for awareness of the positive efforts to support the projects but also to inspire and to ignite a spark in everyone to connect with our soul purpose – why are we here, why are we good at what we are good at and how can we apply that to co-create a better world. This is amongst others what I do for a living to support this process for individuals and for organizations – it is my passion and my life to empower, remind and to facilitate an energy for this initiation.
The first meeting and introduction Kristin Davis had with an elephant she was warned/reminded – take a deep breath, the elephant looks straight into your soul. So powerful. The elephants are moreover known for the qualities of being co-operative spirits, wise, reliable, stable, patient, conducting themselves with grace and respecting their surroundings and honoring its like and strangers. All virtues that would only make our world a better place if these were taught in schools and trainings in all cultures and expected as a given from people around us – that would create harmony, co-creation and we would support each other instead of fight our differences.
I believe in working for the good of all only creates excess wealth and health for everyone involved. Several of the case studies in my book The Treasure, shows financial benefits from focusing on healthy growth and sustainability for our entire stakeholder chain and that this will leverage the wealth in all levels in our society, our organizations and our lives only creating more opportunities and positive results for everyone. Negative focus on competition, scarcity and short term gains will only create a ripple effect of less for all. Competing and taking from others instead of creating new and unique ways will in the end only create erosion of capital, human and natural resources and life leading everyone into an emotional and physical space of survival, fear and war. Lets follow the example of people who prioritize time and resources to make a positive difference. Sometimes all we need is to smile at a stranger – other times we need to make a turn around in our lives and/or our organization and create those new ways.
We can only gain – when choosing ‘to act for life’ – my humble call to action for today.
Have a wonderful day.

Today I had a beautiful moment of peace seeing the beauty of our world…
After hosting first day of my workshop here in Ojai, California, I drove around in the area for an hour. I had several stops to admire the view and the energy of this special valley, enjoying the sunset around me in the mountains and later when it got dark I stopped my car in an orange field. The stars in the sky showed themselves in millions… what an energy, a treasure – rarely have a seen so many stars. I was ‘star struck’.
Traveling the world reminding people that we CAN make a difference, empowering people to be at peace, be centered to be strong to make the right choices, be courageous to care, and to dare to make a difference. Having spent the day with amazing people in my workshop today, receiving meaningful emails from people I met on my way with encouragement and gratitude – I stood below the stars tonight feeling a deep-felt peace and gratefulness. Feeling that I am living my purpose, having no regrets and knowing that I have told the people that I love how I feel and if there was no tomorrow – I would have peace in my soul.
Rene Norman, a skilled and soulful artist from Ojai has invited me to stay while hosting my course here – I am so privileged to sleep in the high celling atelier with tens of windows facing the beautiful maintains. When I wake up at night I am looking up into the stars and wake up in the morning with the sun rising behind the mountains. Coming back from my drive today ‘star struck’, emotional and vulnerable – a wonderful organic vegetarian meal was served and we shared some of our favorite poetry as a continuation of my reflective mood after my drive. I am now in bed writing this post looking up into the stars.
Below you find the first poem shared by Rene by Max Ehrmann. Take a deep breath and allow the words to lead you into the peace of your soul:
Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender,
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even to the dull and ignorant;
they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons;
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain or bitter,
for always there will be greater
and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble,
it’s a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs,
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals,
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Especially do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,
it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit
to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace in your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Strive to be happy.
Author – Max Ehrmann (1872 – 1945)
I hope this poem and this blog will support you in finding your peace, your purpose, encourage you to take a minute or two under the stars no matter where you may be tonight…it is still a beautiful world.
To find peace of mind you can also download my guided meditative cd: The Treasure: A guided Meditative Journey.

I’m flying to Los Angeles from New York to host a workshop – Your Energy Is Key. A certifying education in Energistic Visionary Leadership™ for professionals and private individuals wishing to implement this life changing mindset in their own lives and businesses. What I love about this program is that I get 2 days to care for the participants and guide them how to apply the Energistic Mindset in everything that they do – last time I hosted this workshop was in Melbourne, Australia in May, Everybody agreeing that the beauty of the awareness of energy is that there is no way back once we have become aware of how energy truly works and can be applied in a most caring matter in all areas of life and performance. Our lives will truly be changed.
Once we realize our own responsibility and co-creation in what happens around us, how the imprints of energy from experiences in our past prevents us from living our ultimate life and optimum performance, how blockages in our surroundings, relations, perspectives, strategies, leadership and choices that prevents everything we dream of coming true and to assess if our dreams, visions and ideals are what we want. Essentially, it all comes down to caring enough for one self and the world we live in to make the right choices and act upon them accordingly. Most times we all need a push, all need a new level of awareness to move on, new energy and new ways to handle our challenges and live our lives to the fullest creating the results, excellence and happiness we desire.
The past week I have had many of my Executive Advice Sessions over skype with clients from around the world, but also calls with friends and family. Most calls this past week has been around having to stand strong in own energy in conflicts either at work or in their private lives. Again, it most calls it all came down to care – caring enough to be in a conflict, start a conflict or be in a conflict… On my last visit in Los Angeles on my “Treasure – Change the World Tour” I met with Gnell Abracosa, hotel director for the successful boutique hotels; Mosaic Hotel and Hotel 140 in Beverly Hills, LA. In the middle of our conversation about service and team work she takes a deep breath and share her take on conflicts: “I always remind my staff that conflicts arise because people care, we just have to figure out what the other person truly cares about and respect it”.
I loved that perspective as it is so true. Look at wars, look at political conflicts, look at the political games in the corporate and organizational organizations but also in our homes and in our friendships – all fighting or acting for what they care for. If too much distance of values, choice of destination, distance because of lack of trust either because of past experiences between the parties or from individual experiences in the past, stress making people unable to relate to each other but only act from within own experiences or stress of the society creating constraints instead of opportunities when pressured because of economy or old traditions not willing to see new ways. Essentially, we all react, act or don’t act because we care.
When I spoke in Greenwich – Riverside north of New York City this Monday everyone agreed that energy is universal and that whatever conflict is created and resolved in comes down to caring – only the context and people’s backgrounds are different.
What we care about is different for each person and most of the time we react due to energy imprints in our energy – subconscious memories from the past. Therefore, conflict is such a vulnerable place to meet as there are many factors to take into consideration of not managing the underlying energies right and caring for both self and the others. When I act as a mediator in conflict resolution, negotiations etc on all levels, I always take both culture (personal, organizational, and national) and feelings into considerations other than the actual challenge at hand. I see the energetic blockages that prevent the most optimum outcome and am able to provide insight to action and new synergies – energy is a strong tool to not only solve conflict but also if managed without care to create conflicts. Many of my executives are clueless to begin with about the energy they transmit subconsciously and the conflict they create. Once they become aware of the responsibility but also the immense capacity to drive healthy and positive change – I am amazed by the results they create in their own lives and for that of their companies. Remember, energy does not know distance and a thought can impact your team or your clients no matter where you are.
Yes, there are many ways of caring and experience conflict – sometimes it is because we care about the people we work with, are friends with, live with and other times we have locked ourselves in a certain pattern of thinking that makes it seem impossible to come up with a solution. And luckily sometimes conflict arises because we finally care about ourselves enough to assert ourselves to improve our situation – whether that means to either to find common ground or being ready to break free and move on and find new ways.
New ways always gets us out of comfort zone, makes us feel life – Susanne Møllegård, a successful executive from Denmark who has chosen to add care, insight and awareness into her journey, reminded me the other day that Osho (a progressive Indian guru) always encourages us to go towards what scares us the most. The comfort zone makes us lazy, makes us live a life of robots, makes us believe that the norms set by society and most times by our selves – is our future.
Let us all start to sense what is our individual truth and start to act upon what we truly care about and wish for in life. We actually can change our lives for the better, change the lives of those around us, provide a different perspective and thereby create a ripple effect for positive change and impact in the world we live in. If we care and we make an effort to also care for those with influenced by our choices we co-exist whether we talk about national, organizational or personal change, there is always a way that makes life better for all parties. We might not be able to see it while first out of comfort zone because that is where most people are afraid. To beat fear a first step is always to take a deep breath, which will help us take the next step and the next … First, when we let go of fear, let go of what prevents us moving forward we are ready to create something new and improved, or even radically different to anything we ever dared to dream of. That is how we as grow, as society, as organizations and individual and move forward in great leaps – lets allow ourselves to let go of fear for the unknown and create healthy change and quantum leaps forward.
I promise you I have taken some deep breaths the past months – letting go of my home to travel to spread the message that we can change the world, trusting that enough people along the way will feel an impact from my speeches, meetings, our conversations that they make a conscious choice to care, to make an impact, trust that enough people and companies wish to support my trip through sponsorships and donations, to trust I will be taken care of and that I will have a secure final destination of my tour. Almost every day my tour changes and proves to be different to how I thought it would be, almost everyday something new happens that makes a positive impact on me, my plans, my perspectives. Every day, I take a deep breath, creating positive change, allowing myself to be guided 100% intuitively, opening my heart through meeting so many amazing people on my way – because this is my path, that is my purpose right now.
Breathing, meditating, trusting that acting in a mix of care for both ourselves and the world will lead us exactly to where we are supposed to be. Until now I have only been positively surprised by each new day. So I am with you all in the stepping out of comfort zone, I am with you all and have been ‘scared’ for various reasons along the way but I am also living everything that I am, living my purpose, daring to care, caring for myself and the world around me.
I hope you are choosing to do the same – choosing to live the life you are meant to live.

Last Monday evening, I spoke on a conference call in an inspirational global network for women – for mutual empowerment to fulfill their dreams in life and in their carreers.
I was invited to talk about my “Treasure – Change the World Tour”, my experiences and choices in life that brought great transformation, and the work I do with individuals and companies with Energistic Leadership and Impact Performance™.
One of the thing that moved me speaking to these women in the particular group was that they emphasized joy as an important part of our journey. On my tour I have been so blessed that friends from around the world has joined me – so while speaking, doing sessions, meeting with various interesting people – I at the same time synchronistically get to spend time with good friends.
How joyful is that to have left my home, my country, to travel the world with one message – that we CAN change the world, to empower people and to remind people that is it worth it. Trusting my intuition and guidance and hoping that my trip will be sponsored and believing in this project is worth it. AND suddenly being surrounded by wonderful people but new and old friend that all now have a place in my heart. Friendships and having fun is an incredible creator energy providing a strong ripple effect our lives – it leaves you to feel that you can walk on water knowing that there are always someone there for you. What a support carried to me – beyond what I ever foresaw. I can’t wait to look back at this journey to re-experience the joyful moments having donated a year of my life to encouraging positive change in our world.
Thank you – to all of you supporting my trip, family, friends, sponsors, private people donating to support my trip.
Have a nice evening.
Best of Energies,
One afternoon I was taking a walk in Hollywood on the Star Walk – “Walk of Fame”. I was impressed by the successes behind the names engraved in the sidewalk. At the same time along the walk, many struggling artists was trying to catch our attention with their various gifts – whether they were singers, actors, dancers etc. It was quite a touching experience that for some there was still a long way to the stars and for others they might only be one more song or performance away from the big breakthrough having their dream come true… Yet, how often is it true happiness we get when we get what we want? Is success really the way we define it? Do we always follow our hearts and act in alignment with our values and ethics when achieving what we hoped for?
The same day at the Walk of Stars, there was a memorial for Robin Williams. Robin, who ended his life with a suicide due to mental illness and depression. His name was there amongst all the other prominent personalities from Hollywood lucky enough to have their success engraved in the pavement. So many people were standing around the ceremony – some curious, others trying to push their ways through to get on to camera hoping to be spotted to some day become as known as Robin Williams. But was he happy, was fame his ultimate success? We can only second guess what truly made him happy when alive.
Many on that stretch at least, believe that once they have money and fame life is good. I remember myself in the beginning of my 20’s that my goal in life was to succeed in business and have a good career was happiness – until I realized the immense human suffering in organizations and that I wanted to make a difference – support companies and individuals finding new ways to succeed and be everything that they can become whilst contributing to the world we live in (Hence, Energistic Leadership & Impact Performance™ that I developed and offered to market back in 2007). When they only strive to achieve short term success for their company or so that they can keep their jobs and some, so that they can climb the latter and become managers and head of their organizations with no consideration of the world around them I believe that we are not fully standing in our full capacity – we are so much more and meant to do so much more. There is a purpose to life and the more freedom and opportunities we have – the bigger the responsibility.
Are we aware when building strategies that we need to contribute to a sustainable growth for all parties in our stakeholder chain, when we build performance that we need to build of both spiritual, mental and physical endurance and stamina to ensure not only positive results for our bottom line but also happiness and wellbeing for everyone involved, are we aware that every single thought, choice, action and interaction with other people have an impact – that it is our conscious choice to make a positive difference from when waking up in the morning and either smile or rush at our family members creating two very different scenarios and lives for ourselves and our children?
Do we make a conscious choice on what is our own Star Walk could look like? If each star along your personal star walk would be something you did to make a difference to the world around you, something that made you happy, something that made other people happy what would be in your stars?
Contributing has many colors – the smallest kindness can have the strongest impact on all levels in life. The Star Walk in Hollywood also reminded of meeting Pierce Brosnan once and of how intuition, curiosity and expressing admiration for the work of others can make a much greater difference in their lives and can take you unexpected places. When I was only a young woman (which I of course still am just a decade or more older) in college studying in London on an exchange program, I was taking a walk and saw a man in the street making an impressive peace of art. I felt an urge to compliment him and ask him about his work. Before I knew at it I was standing talking to Pierce Brosnan and being a taxi passenger in a James Bond movie – The World is Not Enough. It was incredible days. The painter was truly happy to be acknowledged for his work as he was always backstage and the actors always got all the attention – so he wanted to give something back.
It turned out the man painting in the street was making settings for the movie and was so happy about my interest that he introduced me to his friend, Pierce Bronsnan’s stunt double and he then invited me to the set. When he was working, I had a chance to spend some time talking to Brosnan. It was very interesting and I still remember till this day his humbleness and kindness to me making me feel that I was important. In the above example, it shows how many things can happen from reaching out, paying attention – simple act of kindness – it didnt take any effort from my side, I never expected anything in return. The compliment came from the bottom of my heart and I had no idea what it was. Kindness creates a ripple effect and everything can change in a split second. I till this day do not know what ripple effect I caused little or a lot in the painter’s life. Making him happy, feeling acknowledged maybe gave him the courage to take his work further, he maybe had more energy for his family coming home. You never know. It is now important. Yet, seeing his willingness to make my day special tells me something about the impact the attention had on him.
Sometimes we don’t need to overcomplicate contribution and making a difference. Just be aware that little effort can make a bigger difference that we ever imagined. Following your intuition and talking to people when inspired can make a big difference in yours and other people’s lives.
Having felt energies since I was a young girl and meditated since I was 12 my intuition has always been sharp yet alone now one of my strongest tool to support people to take optimum advantage of their full capacity in life creating exceptional results and not only living parts of their potential. I believe that being the best you can be – includes having the biggest impact on the world we live in – why else were we born. Robin William that I mentioned in the beginning of this blog, did not only make a difference when alive always fighting for the weakest, offering reliefs in the hospitals and helping unemployed people, his story fighting depression now helps to make awareness in the in tire world on mental health. He was certainly a man with great impact before and after his death using his fame to create a beautiful ripple effect of abundance and awareness in our world. Read this lovely article on brianlord.org’s website: some ask for private jets others for homeless people to get a job!
I hope the above blog will inspire you to follow your inspiration, creating your own Star Walk, knowing what really matter and dare to define what success truly is for you – then having the courage to act on it and dare to care for yourself and for other make a difference through being who you are and what you were meant to be.

Next stop Los Angeles – “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”
The next stop of my “Treasure – Change the World Tour” was LA. This stop was behind anything I have imagined and made me add a little to my tour. I met so may inspiring people with meaningful projects that I decided to start writing about those that I met along the way even though I know my version of their stories will never make them justice – yet what an energy, a ripple effect beyond words created by people and their good intentions, actions and choices.
The first people I met out of the airport and immediately found to be trusted was two young men on their way to a finance conference. They wish to stay anonomous for the sake of their clients. Every day they work to change the world hired by a corporation supporting families and individuals in need to set their finances straight and to get back on their feet financially. It was quite interesting to talk to them and hear about their jobs. Also to observe them in the streets of LA – the way they were determined to make those feeling inferior or struggling in the streets feeling worthy, feeling that all hope was not lost and that they were important. I was very impressed by these two young men, their attitude to the world and their view on life.
They were living life with little boundaries decided by the norm of our society but of what made them feel alive. At one point I said to one of them:”You are beyond crazy”. He replied:” You are the one traveling the world, having given up all stability and possession in your life to try and make a positive change, to make people aware that we can change the world – and spending your time with two young men that you have never met before. I don’t know which one of us are most crazy.” Touché…
Their great passion was to be on the side of those in need, fighting against banks and other industries that they perceived keeping people down and from paying back their loans due to high interests rates calculated and determined by mechanisms only serving those already on top of their games – earning money from those who have nothing amongst others due to the unnatural high interest rates set by banks and other financial institutions. I hope that we can some day create a system that support the banks, their clients and the world – so that all parties win. Whatever is the whole truth to this perspective and whatever way you twist or turn it – I was just happy to meet such inspirational young men living to make a difference.
After having spent some time with these men, who challenges my perspectives on many levels (which I see as a positive when traveling and wanting to create change – if I shouldn’t be challenged in my perspectives then who should).
As Einstein said; “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it”. So we need to allow ourselves to be challenged on our status quo of this world, we need to have the courage to dare, dare to care…
I continued alone in Los Angeles and met more and wonderful people making a difference. I am continuously amazed when speaking to many different people – I get to see how many amazing people really strive to make a difference on so many levels while doing what they are good at, creating exceptional results for their companies, for the people in their stakeholder chain and the world we live in.

Visiting Niagara Falls I was taken by surprise – I will call it a World Treasure. A place that carries so much energy and if aware of the energies we as individuals change simply just by visiting this place.
First the touristic scenery, almost made me drive back to Toronto even before reaching the falls. Then, reaching the falls, another great and positive surprise presented itself – I was impressed and touched. The longer I stayed the more impressed I was – with the constant stream of that amount of water running over the sides with such a deep and powerful fall creating a mist way higher than the fall it self.
It was an energy of constant renewal – like life no moment was the same. It was constantly new water, new energy, new shapes and colors as the wind carried the mist in different directions, as the sun or clouds were mirrored in the surface of the water and depending on the wind, the sun and the movement of the mist a beautiful rainbow marked itself on the sky… it was beautiful. At a certain point the mist came at my feet and so did the sun – so I was standing at the end of the rainbow and it felt amazing.
I sat down at the side of the falls – with my back to the tourists and my face to the falls – I allowed my energies to blend with the in tire Niagara Falls and meditated – a strong meditation with strong feeling rolling over me – feeling the strength, the power, and the destruction of all old not useful any longer. I felt a strong sense of abundance, a cleansing, a detoxification of my energies… sensing the purpose of why to be here at the beginning of my “Treasure – Change the World Tour”.
Poseidon is known for safe travels and the ability to shake the world and we know it. Which is perfect for my tour and purpose. To be safe and to remind as many people as possible that we can change the world. Also do I wish to extend this energy to all of you starting a new life journey – whatever that may be in your lives.
I was truly enjoying the elements of the Niagara Falls: the water, the power, the strength but also the healing, nurturing and cleansing qualities of water which I believe are necessary if we want to change the world.
An Energistic Meditative Visualization you can do at home to experience some of the same energies:
Starting taking deep breaths – breathing out negativity and energies of no use in the next chapter of your life. For each breath, imagine yourself sit at the side of the falls and for each breath you take imagine a light filling you up from the inside of your heart and out. Slowly, for each breath, you feel the energies expand and blend with the air around you, with the mist created by the falls, and the water. Feel a part of the entire Fall – allowing your energies to be cleansed, fell the strength building up inside of you and a feeling of oneness with nature. Feeling at peace, having the feeling of rising above all current challenges and fears. Allow yourself to feel safe, to feel that your world has been shaken, your worries has drifted away with the waters. Feel that your life has changed and that each breath you take change the world – feel the immense positive impact bouncing back and forth between you and the world…
Take care, feel abundant and be at peace.

Friday 8th of August was a day of inner & world peace for me. I met several wonderful people having many peaceful moments and a great meditation in the company of Deepak Chopra.
I started the day at breakfast by meeting a research professor from the Bahai Chair for World Peace – University of Maryland – dedicated to advancing interdisciplinary study and discourse on Peace – what a purposeful job and life.
Later I went to the Global Peace Meditation for Peace meditating with Deepak Chopra and more than 100.000 people having connected online from around the world for this event. Gabrielle Bernstein facilitated the Q&A and Grammy winner, India Arie sang and played wonderfully and set a great energy for us to start our meditation.
The intention of the meditation was to create a global impact of a critical mass of people ready for a more peace world with peaceful solutions. It was so touching and as the music started it was as if the energy of a 100.000 angels where in that room. Tears were flowing down my cheeks, we were asked to close our eyes and think of what peace was to us. I saw everyone I loved and cared for laughing, smiling being at peace, then the circle extended to the world and seeing all places in crisis of any kind, hunger, war, political conflicts etc where people where smiling, laughing, being in peace and having all their needs met, and then I was in my own body in my heart, feeling and seeing an immense light at felt love on all levels in every cell of my body, feeling connected, being connected to everyone at this planet, not borders, no nationalities, no religions, no separation. Just humanity at peace. So beautiful and such a strong feeling.
Try for a minute to do the same thing: Close your eyes, take deep breaths and as your body starts to relax and let go visualize what peace is to you. Create that feeling of peace – be in peace for a couple of minutes and take that feeling with you into your day.
At the event I met a wonderful woman, Stephanie Angelona Harding, 6 months pregnant, happily in love, having quit her VP position in a big company just few months ago following her heart. She wishes to make a difference, having started her own company here in Toronto, Mind Savvy with the slogan: “Know your mind, transform your life” with a formula for the lost productivity due to stress costing business billions a year.
Just before leaving for a coffee with Stephanie and a young and upcoming singer and performer, I met with Sujon Datta from LA, California, the grandnephew of Paramahansa Yogananda – the father of Yoga. Then Stephanie so kindly drow me to a beautiful area of Toronto near Ashbridge Bay and beach park by the Lake Ontario. Here I had a nice walk along the lake – having an organic juice with natural remedies such as Chaga having healing and strengthening qualities.
I was at peace feeling blessed and ready for my trip already having met several inspiring people on my first day on my “Treasure – Change the World Tour”.
Take care and be at peace.
Best of energies,
Today is the first travel day of my “Treasure – Change the World Tour” – I left Copenhagen this morning happy and excited.
It was a tough choice to make in terms of traveling and leaving the security of income, leaving my dream home, and leaving my Danish friends and family behind. Yet, it also felt and feels so right – to travel the world and connect with people to share the message that we CAN change the world, our lives and our choices for the better. Its all energy and it is a choice to act for life…
Waking up this morning in a hotel bed for the first time was both nerve wrecking and exciting as I was finally settled to go on a tour I consciously only chose to do for 3 months ago – for the past weeks I have had my mind full of practical matters, my retreats, sessions and moving – trying at the same time to see family and friends. So being at a hotel room with nothing left to think off than my up coming trip the questions started to show up. Will I make a big enough difference on my trip? Will I be able to earn my way through the trip, get enough stays and flights sponsored? Will my niece and nephew grow to fast and forget about me? Will I remain strong enough to listen to my intuitive guidance and make the right choices – or will I need the title for my next book suggested joking by Lizl Rand; ‘Fuck Intuition’ if it all goes wrong – she made me laugh. Having meditated since I was 12 and followed my intuition in all areas of life as long as I remember, I know that it will all be good – and whatever happens, happen for a reason… I also know that if we allow our fears to rule we will always be holding back on our true purpose, whether it is business, relationship or personal decisions. I am ready to travel in complete trust and allowing all good to happen for me, for those I meet on my way and for the world.
As a bonus this morning, I was in good surroundings waking up after having handed over the keys to my home – Hilton at Copenhagen Airport had invited me to stay for easy access to my flight that morning. I was encouraged when going for a shower a note from the staff met me – Make a Difference – then I was back on track again. Luckily, I also had access to their business lounge – because last papers had to be printed and signed and sent off. So I was helped and even a nice security man in the airport offered me to send my letters as I was running late – a true symbol of being assisted along the way and that there are so many good people out there willing to help and support.
Now, I have just arrived to Toronto… my first stop and I am excited to see what I will experience here… I had a long talk about world peace and the power of meditation with the taxi driver driving in from the airport – as I tomorrow will meditate with Deepak Chopra, Gabrielle Bernstein, India Arie, Maya Tiwari for the world largest global meditation for world peace here in Toronto. You can join from where ever you are in the world – Toronto Time 11:30am.
It is a new economy, it is a new time, it is a new beginning. A choice to act for life…

Stay tuned and stay well… I will keep you updated on my tour.
Energy in places is strong and can have a great impact on our performance and well -being. We all know how it feels to walk into a room emanate of positive or negative energy or when we arrive to a place with a great setting. It can be an office with water view, a hotel in the mountains or a breath taking building. It makes us feel good, it does make an impact and it is most certainly worthwhile being aware of this undervalued fact. It all matters in terms of our personal well being, our motivation but also our organizational performance and our inspiration and ability to tap into creative energies that helps us to create long term sustainable solutions for ourselves and the world we live in.
When I travel I always try and stay at places that enhances the purpose of my trip. For holidays I choose peaceful settings and for business I look for energies of comfort, authority and mindfulness. For my “Treasure – How to Change the World Tour” I am looking to stay at high quality and energy places having considered the environment and the social environment in their strategies. I will share my experiences here on my blog with you to give you examples. Also will I share my experiences about high-energy places and meetings with people making a difference and transmitting and energy of positive influence and change in our world.
Most hotels make an effort to set a certain exceptional ambiance with decorations, sounds, smells, flowers and so forth. In our private lives we clean, scrub, decorate and redecorate when we move into a new place to create a certain energy and look that we call our own. The same efforts are worth it in our organizational lives.
The Dolder Grand is an good example of a hotel with an exceptional energy all around… service, quality, situated in a beautiful location in the mountains overlooking a lake, well thought of decorations, with thought of the environment, and their spa products inspired by nature and the intrinsic energy found in all things, produced by people who wish to make a positive impact on people and the world.
As individuals we have to be aware of a such energy and to choose to be at high-energy places – not necessarily 5 start hotels, or change the energy – and we CAN change the energy:
“The energy of the place you find yourself in has enormous influence on the way you work there. We have to acknowledge the energy that surrounds us has an impact on our lives and performance – and we are not victims of what energy we allow ourselves to work in and, in most cases, we are able to change and optimize that energy in existing facility: no matter how good it is, we can always improve and prepare the energies to support our highest purpose in life and work.”
Sometimes it is not the cleaning, nor the decoration that helps. We can change the energy in places with redirection, resetting and intention. We also use the different energies in different places to support our goals and purpose. I myself try to make an effort to be in specific energies for different needs. For reflections I will make sure to be alone – the view over the ocean to me provides the energy of unlimited inspiration and inspired input. When having to answer emails and communicate in writing sitting in a nice café with people coming in and out, chatting away and some having deep conversation is a great enhancer for my productivity. When brainstorming either by myself or with others I make sure to have some lounge music with a beat in the background and/or sitting in a room with different art on the walls and if possible an open view. For researching the energy of a library is the best.
Paying a visit to the New York Public Library the energy emanated of inspiration and knowledge. What a treasure! It was great inspiration walking in the energies of thoughts and insights that had come into writing by thousands of great soul. I enjoyed blending with the energies and felt the expansion of awareness and consciousness and inspiration instantly came to me and I felt like staying and putting my thoughts into writing or sitting down and reading one of the many books.
A CEO sitting in his big office never leaving his chair will never be as effective as somebody who changes his ways – walking around in the company sensing the energies, taking some time by himself with his note book, etc. In general everybody would benefit from taking some time to figure out what, where and how we work best, when and in what energies. When that is said one can impact the energies in a certain place. See below my signature for some simple reminders and advice regarding energy in places.
I am looking forward to traveling the world and experience all sorts of energies. I will keep you posted on my up coming trip.
Have a fantastic weekend.

Places have energy:
Where do your live, where is your office, where do you choose go in holiday. Does the energy of the place support your purpose, your vision and the type of performance and results you wish to create?
Things have an energy frequency:
Be aware what your things do to you. Do your energy frequencies improve or do they drop? Sell and throw out if they do not serve your energy.
You can change the energy:
Changing energy is more difficult. Here you have to be good at managing your own energy – both in terms of strength of your energy (being built through meditation) and the focus of your energies (built through visualization and practice). From a science based perspective you can read more about Extended Mind Theory by Andy Clark and David Chalmers (1998)
When both are strong you can start by attuning your energies and visualizing a certain energy being built in the room and by repeating this several time you can build a new energy in places, buildings, rooms and offices. The stronger your energies are the quicker and more strong your energy work manifests. I have done lots of this type of work for clients over the years with great results. I have a case study in my book The Treasure: How to Change the World.
