How to create a self-directed life

We are part of nature and life is meant to be easy. We are born with gifts and abilities – our creative faculties – that are our true treasures. However at this moment in our evolution, with all the breakthroughs that have been made in the world on all fronts, we are still operating from the outdated mode of SURVIVAL. This is responsible for us going through life looking for direction and validation from a place outside of ourselves. As a result, more often than not we are guided by what others want from us.

Without realizing, our THOUGHTS and FEELINGS – which are a reflection of our past experiences – inform us to make decisions and as a result we end up in similar scenarios, repeating the same SABOTAGING patterns, constantly recreating our past experiences regardless of the change in the settings: even in new job environments, with new partners, or in different countries. The more we try to FIT IN, be ACCEPTED, be GOOD ENOUGH, be LOVED, the more we go further and further from our true essence, our true natural abilities and we experience a sense of MEANINGLESSNESS and HOPELESSNESS. The harder we try the bigger the fall. Life becomes a STRUGGLE, full of STRESS and endless ways to COMPROMISE.

In this workshop we are going to unveil the egoic structures that cause you a considerable amount of stress, anxiety and conflict and keep you trapped in a life of limitation. You will also learn tools that allow you to KNOW and CONNECT to yourself at a deeper level, embrace your OWN AUTHORITY, INTELLIGENCE and RESOURCES so you can set the foundation to create a SELF-DIRECTED LIFE.

“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” Carl G. Jung

IN THIS WORKSHOP YOU WILL LEARN:
– About different levels of AWARENESS and how they impact your life
– How your EGO was formed and how it is affecting your life
– How PERCEPTION, THOUGHTS and FEELINGS are sabotaging you
– How NEGATIVE EMOTIONS form and how to transmute them into LOVE
– How to tap into your TRUE POTENTIAL
– How to shift from the SURVIVAL mode of living into an EMPOWERED one, which will enable you living your TRUE POTENTIAL
– How to create a SELF-AWARENESS HYGIENE for your daily life, just as brushing your teeth, which will set you up for success in creating what you love
– How to start taking your PERSONAL POWER back and MASTER YOUR LIFE

26 June – Why mainstream personal development doesn’t work

A lot of personal development approaches still come down to trying to fix yourself, trying to change limiting beliefs, taking massive action based on what you don’t want, trying to get away from your current circumstances, etc.

That simply doesn’t work. Join us for a salon session with Lidija and Filip, a casual but frank conversation about the gaps that these methods leave, and what constitutes a more effective approach.

Lidija Markovic Rosati is a former banker turned international NLP trainer, co-creator of the Momentum Method and entrepreneur. Lover of life and people. Curious nomad – born in Eastern Europe (Serbia), lives in Western Europe (London) and works across Europe. Writes Haiku poetry, explores the power of the unconscious and its relationship with language. She started Yes Group Serbia and co-founded Momentum NLP Serbia. Biggest breakthrough: leaving behind the safe corporate world and finding the courage to embark on the most beautiful adventure called: LIFE.

Filip Roeckens is a Natural Success coach and trainer, and the founder of Yes Group Belgium. Loves intuition, Structural Dynamics, the wisdom of the body, and dancing.

19 October – Hypnosis and Being Your Best Self

Personal development. Inspiring leadership. Inner peace. Joy in life.

We are all fascinated by these things and we’ve all found ways of facilitating our personal growth or increasing our life satisfaction and happiness.

Yet, sometimes, there are still things that hold us back. There are still limitations to the ways that we can change and grow.

Whether it’s hitting a plateau where growth seems stalled or whether it’s those bad habits or those persistent feelings that pop up again and again, we’ve all felt it… That feeling of falling short of our potential or of ‘losing control’.

And this is when we are reminded that no matter how much willpower we use, no matter how many affirmations we make, no matter how positive our thinking might be, within each and every one of us are powerful unconscious drives.

When your conscious thinking and your unconscious drives are out of alignment, you might find it’s like you ‘ran out of gas’. When you suddenly find yourself driven to indulging yourself in counterproductive ways. Or you might even experience self sabotage.

When your conscious thinking and your unconscious drives are in alignment, you’ll find that things that seemed impossible are suddenly not only do-able but fun! Impossibilities become challenges. Bad habits give way to new and constructive automatic behaviours. Feelings change for the better. And you start to live life at a whole new level.

Michael PerezMichael Perez is a hypnotist with over three decades of experience working with these unconscious factors. He’s also a keen student of cognitive neuropsychology and linguistics.

Michael has fused these different disciplines and these different schools of hypnosis in order to decode the science and practice of unconscious communication and influence, and create a new code for deep and powerful hypnotic interactions. Michael will be teaching this material in Brussels at the end of October, and he would like to give you an opportunity to preview this fascinating new approach to conversational and direct hypnotic communication and influence. So join us the 19th at the beautiful space of Transforma BXL (Evere)!

15 June: Unleash Your Genius

“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” ~ Carl Jung

Our unconscious mind is where our identity exists and our identity was created when we were growing up to keep us safe and secure so that we could survive. However, now that we’re adults, our identity severely sabotages our true potential by unconsciously creating resistance.

Your identity is made up of your limiting beliefs, assumptions and definitions, which you have accumulated from the past. And this is where your thoughts and feelings come from. The problem is that you have been educated at school and personal development seminars to use your thoughts and feelings to make decisions, which determine the actions you take and the life you create. Your thoughts and feelings are a reflection of your past and so if you continue to rely on them to make decisions, you will simply be recreating your past. Hence, your identity is sabotaging you from what you want, limiting your full potential and creating a compromised life.

Our superconscious mind is where our genius exists which includes our innate abilities like intuition, imagination and highest levels of creative frequency. Our genius includes our natural talents and gifts that when unleashed will empower us to create anything we want.

Join us for this workshop to learn more about how to stop your identity from sabotaging you, and the keys to unleashing your genius.

Our speaker is… me! Filip Roeckens, chairman of Yes Group Belgium. After a 10 year journey in personal development, learning a lot but still struggling to create what I really wanted, I came accross Natural Success. At first, I thought it would be nothing new. I did not want to attend yet another seminar! I’m glad I went to check them out anyway; the first workshop really resonated with me as it confirmed some of my own conclusions, and the second workshop blew my mind. I’ve been hooked ever since, doing all the levels of the curriculum and now working towards my accreditation as a Natural Success coach.

18 May – Healing from the inside out

Our speaker this month is Craniosacral therapist Jan Camus. His premise is simple: ignoring emotions and emotional tensions is a deadly game. Yet society pushes us to play along – no pain, no gain, so it seems. Is there a different way to deal with them, to be able to increase the quality of our life?

So we’ll dive deep into emotions. What is an emotion actually? What impact does an emotion have on our body energetically? How long can an emotion reverberate – minutes, years, generations? What does it take from our body to suppress or bottle up emotions?

Jan CamusJan is a highly sensitive sixtysomething with a particular interest in how we function energetically, and how to use our human energy to relax or heal. The first 30 years of his professional life was a lightning fast career in the world of luxury goods, that ended in a burnout. His sometimes painful process of change lead him to Craniosacral therapy.

16 March – Step into the arena of your life

In this interactive workshop we will explore how embracing vulnerability supports living bravely, showing up and being seen, based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown.

Dr. Brené Brown, Ph.D. LMSW, is a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past twelve years studying vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame. She is the author of The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly and Rising Strong.

In the first part of the workshop we will focus on the metaphor of “stepping into the arena of your life”. You’ll discover what vulnerability means and how your relationship with vulnerability impacts where and how you show up in your life.

In the second part we focus on what you need to step into the arena. We explore shame, empathy, clarity of values and support.

Are you ready to dare greatly? Then this workshop is for you!

anndanielsAnn Daniels loves to fail forward and to go on intensive learning journeys. This has lead her to become a Certified Professional Co-active Coach, a Certified Daring Way Facilitator and one of the founders of The Fail Forward movement. Her life mission is to empower people to unlock their full potential.

In order to get where she is now, Ann had to forget most of what she learned in school and at university because it triggered her perfectionism and got her into burn-out at 27. This was her biggest failure till now and it pushed her to embrace vulnerability as courage, to realize that perfectionism is actually a way of shielding vulnerability, and to see failing as part of learning and playing big with and in life.
