I Am Back From Israel!

It’s been two weeks since I came back from Israel. I had a rich and intense time learning about trauma, integrating parts of my own shadow and meeting amazing people who share the same vision as I. I also got a chance to explore Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, feeling the energy of holy sites and the welcoming warmth of the Mediterranean Sea.

When I felt into my future 8 years ago, I could sense myself being a part of a global community that came together to heal cultural and collective wounds. I could sense us holding space for each other, for “our countries”, allowing emotions to emerge and move like rivers. I could feel us working together to co-create a more peaceful and healed world. The kind of world where global citizenship can take root. The AHA moment came last week, when I realized that…

I am living out my vision. I feel like I found my tribe. And this feels magical.

I believe that if each one of us did our inner work and made the kind of contribution we are called to make, we would be living in a different kind of a world. One that is devoid of war and violence and other global challenges we are currently facing.

I want to ask you now: What breaks your heart?

Often times, we hear such phrases as “follow your bliss”, “do what makes you feel joyful”. These are wonderful pointers to your North Star and I also believe it’s important to ask yourself what pains you? What breaks your heart? In this video, poet David Whyte eloquently speaks about the importance of heartbreak (and much more), in a conversation with my spiritual teacher, Thomas Huebl.

What one step can you take now in the direction of your deepest calling?

Feel into your next step and commit to taking one action that will move you closer to your deepest calling.
