Q: Nowadays many people going back to organic food and doing yoga and meditation to keep them calm and balance. You working of Breath , what is your say?
VEDG: Being conscious about your breathing is very important, when we face intense moments in our life we tend to to hold our breath. over time this translates into physical holding patterns that have locked up freely flow of the breath and the energy. The Breath is one of the keys to unlock the inner healer and to get into wholeness, but it takes willingness, trust and courage. “Breath is the bridge that connects life to consciousness, which units body and thoughts”.
Q: How important is healthy mind?
VEDG: As holistic being, the mind and emotion play a big role in life. there are many things that can affect mental health, from some event that created an impact in your life to Traumas with big T and the consequential PTSD – Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. it is important to have awareness and work consciously to heal and transform. The need to break the chain from passing the pain from one generation to the next is crucial. Being aligned with a healthy mind is crucial for you success and health as you will save the escapism of energy therefore you can use it for creation, productivity and service to community.
Q: You worked with lots of women how you empowered them?
VEDG: By being aware and breaking free from their “Personal Law” which is the negative thought and limitations about themselves. It is beyond all the LAWS that are changing in the outside world to empower women, there is one law that she has to break through and this is what she thinks about herself and the limitations that are imposed inside of her. Also I work with women the awareness of the Feminine Capital Rhythm that each of us has.
