Hello there !
How are you doing ?
I hesitated for quite a while before sending an email about the current situation… because I personally feel overwhelmed by the amount of information (and fake news !) which we are all receiving at the moment. But in the end, here it is ! You obviously can decide whether or not you want to read it.
What I have seen so far is that some people are actually feeling quite fine with what is happening worldwide, others are going through a mix of emotions, and others have entered into a rollercoaster of anxiety, panic, sadness etc, and don’t seem to be able to get out of it.
Let’s be clear. In my opinion, some people have been preparing for this for a few months, even a few years already. Of course they didn’t know exactly what was going to happen, but they have done some work on themselves, they know themselves, their wounds, their weaknesses and their strengths. It does not mean that they are not surfing the waves of emotions but maybe they are able to welcome them and trust the experience.
For others, it might be quite a shock! Like for every accident, serious illness, loss, crisis, burnout, etc. they don’t know how to deal with it, react, behave, and handle what’s happening.
What I would like to tell you is this : it’s not the end, for anyone. Every crisis is an invitation to “transform”… it doesn’t need to be some radical or amazing change, it can be a small realisation, a small step, some help to make a decision, etc.
This crisis is a collective one, but it doesn’t mean that we can’t make choices individually. Yes we are limited in terms of physical space but not with our mind, body and energy !
We always have a choice, even when we are not conscious of it. We can choose to keep ourselves busy, to play the victim, to have fun, to learn, to stop, to enjoy, to process, to become very creative, to panic, to cry, to laugh, to sing, not to do anything, to think, to be inspired and inspiring, to get frustrated, to scream, to look at ourselves and the world, to listen, to question ourselves, to be hopeful, to be ok with not knowing, to become more conscious, to wish for the best, to imagine the worst, etc.
We are allowed and it’s totally okay to go through these different phases… What we need to do though is to see what is helping us and what is actually making us feel worse, in order not to remain stuck.
In fact, the way to approach this is the same as usual: stop, observe, breathe, be with the silent and the void, allow yourself to feel everything and ask yourself: “what do I need? What brings me joy? What bring me lightness of being?” without looking and what others are doing or comparing yourself as not everyone is at the same stage of the process. And that’s ok!
Yes, I know, that we might not like what we are feeling: void, loneliness, and silence force us to look at our suffering, our fears, our angers, our sorrows, etc. But it’s only when we welcome these that we can heal them. We have this choice now. We can either keep sleeping in front of TV or on social media or awaken to what is and what we are deeply in our hearts and bodies, day by day, hour by hour, moment by moment.
So how are you ? What is your choice right now ? What do you need ? Do you manage to stop and listen to yourself ? Let me know by email!
If you are not able to stop then have some fun trying out things (and it’s ok to fail !), checking in with yourself before and after.
For instance :
-Do I feel better or worse after spending two hours on the internet ?
-Do I feel better or worse after speaking with a friend on the phone?
-Do I feel better or worse after cooking something good ?
-Do I feel better or worse after crying for an hour ?
-Do I feel better or worse after meditating ?
-Do I feel better or worse after moving my body?
There is no trick in these questions. And there is no right or wrong answer. Only YOU can know what helps you.
Oh believe me I know it’s not easy. Every crisis and change require courage. And right now everything is coming to the surface more strongly. The bad news is that it can be very violent. The good news is that it is clearer and easier to recognise what needs to heal and what works for you.
At the beginning of the year, I made myself a promise : do things from a place of joy and love, or not do them at all. It sounds simple, doesn’t it ? It’s a fast way to sort out what you want to do.
Well… in fact with all our « obligations », the way our current system and society work, people’s opinion, etc., it can actually be challenging.
I’ll give you an example: since the beginning of the confinement, I’ve ben asked and told i don’t know how many times to show up more online. Except everything I’m feeling emotionally and physically is telling me NO !
I am not going to lie to you, my mind went a bit crazy… Of course I want to contribute, help, support, share my skills. But what I have been observing is that we all rushed into transferring everything we usually do online without taking a step back. And now we have 10 times more information and offers to deal with and it’s getting harder and harder to sort out.
On a personal level (and this is true for me, it might not be for you), I feel this situation is an invitation to continue the deceleration process I started over 1,5 year ago. And even if I do feel a bit guilty, I know for sure that I will not be helpful by doing 10 times more. I prefer quality. I prefer to work with one person at a time, with all my heart and attention.
I don’t have all the answers. And you know what? Nobody does ! But it’s ok ! It’s the perfect opportunity to trust yourself, and to embrace uncertainty.
And if you do feel the need to be supported in this process… You know I would be more than happy to be there for you.

I wish you well.
Lots of love,
how are you doing?
As you probably already know, I am a big fan of nature. I spend time outdoors as often as possible. It's where and when I feel the most connected to the Universe, to the Whole, or whatever you want to call it: the Source, the Energy Field, the Matrix, God, the Supra-consciousness, etc.
Snow has arrived already in the mountains where I live and I must admit I have mixed feelings about it. On one hand I love snow, I love seeing infinite and clean white spaces, and entire trees covered with this magical powder. I am mesmerised like a kid, I want to make a snow angel and a snowman :-)
However the last snow here (in Jura) fell on May 8... So it's only been 6 months... And I am totally lost in my calendar, thinking that we are already mi-December (which shows how conditioned we are, but that's a topic for another day!) And I also love the variety of seasons and Autumn colours - which have already disappeared under a huge white coat...
Anyway, then I start breathing, I pay attention to all this snow that is falling from the sky and gradually takes over everything. It calls for respect. It brings silence, peace and a sort of cleansing.
And as I look at the trees, the fields, the forest, the mountains more carefully, I realise they have completely surrendered to it; well it's not as if they could move hahah. But as we know, they will adapt, transform, follow the flow, without resistance, without tension.
It's so powerful. Nature's strength comes from this: its capacity to surrender to the present moment. Whether it's raining, snowing, hailing, whether it's sunny, windy, warm or cold, life goes on, everything is here, cycle after cycle, transformation after transformation: cleansing, losing one skin, getting another one, births, deaths, renewals, rebirths, etc.
Always so powerful, so magical. And if we can relate to this, without resisting, without feeling tense, without complaining, without feeling scared each time life redirects us on a different path from the one we wanted or imagined... Then we can see and acknowledge inside us this same pattern, this same power! The Supra-consciousness, the Universe, etc is inside everyone of us. We are also able to live plenty of different experiences, not only great and happy ones, but also terribly difficult ones; what i have noticed is that difficult things tend to move on faster when we don't resist, when we surrender and accept.
In any case I would like to invite you to take a few breaths and become aware of the miracle that you are... Honour yourself and everything that you've been through, that you've experienced, overcome, and learnt along the way, everything that makes you who you are. Well done!
And if you'd like to treat yourself to a great gift to go further on your transformational journey, I'd like to invite you to make an appointment with me, to spend 2 days in immersion in a beautiful chalet in St-Cergue, 45 min from Geneva, in a magical place, surrounded with nature and mountains, in an ideal environnement to support inner work and development, to solve your biggest frustration, using the Laughing Butterfly method.
This retreat is individual and therefore tailored to your needs, it includes:
1 preliminary call to agree on your objectives
1 single room for 2 nights
Meals and snacks
2 half-days of therapeutic work + an action plan
2 half-days of integration during which you can choose (Depending on your energy level): rest, free walk, guided walk, semi-guided walk (snowshoeing if there is snow) reading, using the sauna, relaxing in front of the fireplace, etc.

See you soon!
We are all made of energy. Your emotions, your thoughts are all energy. If you start paying attention to how you are feeling, you can notice how you feel whenever you enter place, or when you meet somebody. Do you feel better or worse ? It is that simple.
How you feel is of course linked to what you are experiencing in life, who you are and what you have lived before. But it is also connected to the energy of the place, the people or the elements that are present around you. If you are highly sensitive, you can even feel the energy of the city you live in, or even the world ; maybe you can also feel the vibrations of the Earth, the Moon or of the planets.
You vibrate at a certain frequency. The better you feel, the healthier you are, the higher the frequency. And others can also feel your vibration. In a state of homeostasis (balance) your vital energy (also called ki, prana or chi) flows easily and naturally. When you are stressed out, or if you have bad nutrition, a negative thought, an emotional shock, etc. your energetic system will start being unbalanced.
If whatever is shaking you off balance happens only once in a while, it is still good to rebalance your whole system by taking care of yourself (various options exist of course, and amongst them energy therapies)
If you are always stressed out or anxious, have experienced trauma or if you are highly sensitive, your system is probably very often off balanced. When your ki gets stuck, it creates excess of energy in some areas and voids in others, which
means your physical body can be impacted (pain, tension, disease, breathing isssues, etc.) Your mental state and psychological health can also be affected. Everything is connected.
Energy therapy helps removing blockages from the past and the present, filling in the voids and help re-activating your self-healing power.
We are all connected energetically. It is also possible you have caught energy from other people, that does not belong to you. It is important to get cleansed.
Face-to face or remotely, I connect to your energy to cleanse and balance it. Remotely i have the opportunity to connect directly to your energy field without being in contact with the physical body , which makes the frequency of the treatment higher and stronger ; the work will therefore be faster and deeper, working throughout dimensions and without limits from space and time.
Wanna try ? To book an appointment, you can use this link here or call me at +41 79 128 32 62. I will call you via Skype, Zoom or What's app (whatever is easiest for you) at the beginning of the session.
