It's not just you - this world is overwhelming. Without knowledge on how to become fully aware - we will feel stuck on repeat, no matter how hard we work!
In 4 simple and fun steps, I help high-performing people to develop an infinite mindset. So that they can maximize their experience of life by being fully present.
Mindfulness is the ability to be fully self-aware – this ability can be trained and is the only life hack you'll ever need to know.
IT'S THE PLACE AND SPACE in which WHAT WAS, WHAT WILL BE & everything we have been TAUGHT & CONDITIONED TO BELIEVE LOSES ALL IT'S POWER & we are FULLY AWARE. A very own RESET BUTTON - Available EVERY SINGLE MOMENT of the day!
I’m Louise Harms and I am passionate about mindfulness. To me it’s the foundation upon which anything is possible. It’s freedom. It’s a super power. It's the only life hack you'll ever need and the difference between playing a finite game - in which you can lose and an infinite game where you and everybody else are ALL winners.
I can get very emotional about the world, people and about myself. And I’m also very driven by rationalizing things and tend to undertake a lot of thinking. On a mission, hard worker - both amazing qualities that I feel blessed to have, but there were times where - only because I lacked knowledge in their functions, I gave them too much space and I suffered a lot more than necessary.
The point is not to be happy and positive all the time. It's about being self-aware. Knowing and accepting our emotions, giving them the space they need, but having the power to let go when they do not serve us anymore. The same goes for our thoughts.
Viktor E. Frankl wrote, in his amazing book, “Man’s search for Meaning”;
“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.”
- Viktor E. Frankl
This is the power of mindfulness. The hidden gem inside all of us that with just a little bit of knowledge and training can shine so bright we don’t now what hit us.
In my mentoring I mix classic with modern mindfulness teachings, NLP, psychology, systemic coaching elements and ancient zen practices.
I call it mentoring because I think mindfulness is such an individual experience. I will share my knowledge about how the mind, body and spirit can work together. But I will not teach you anything that is not already inside of you.
I will only provide the best tools for you, so that you can dig out that gem.
I believe that we are all made imperfectly perfect by nature. I will learn and grow from you as well. That's what makes me love this job so much.
Oh, and why so Grapeful? I love wine and have a WSET level 1 award in Wine and Spirits. Cheers!
Looking forward to be hearing from you!
Consciousness – also known as self-awareness actually has a location. It's the place we find when we have balance between our mind, body and that life force we all carry - named anything from soul, personality to spirit. Basically it’s hiding in broad daylight. All we need to do to find it is raise our awareness of our thoughts and emotions and try to live authentic. I work for long-term results. That's why I start with the body first and use the assets we where born with.
So how exactly does that work...
STAGE 1. ACTIVATE SENSES & ZEN RITUALS
Our senses are our bodies’ very own keys to the present moment. They also strengthen our focus and make us become more aware. The more we use them, the more heightened they get and want to come out and "play" - maximizing our entire experience of life. That’s why the first step is to start using your senses more consciously.
Zen-Buddhism is known for it's amazing rituals. Anything from tee-ceremonies to gardening. In the end it's all about adding focus and awareness to normal tasks - like cooking and showering.
STAGE 2. DATE YOURSELF
Many of us are so focused on the outer world we forget about ourselves. However everything starts and ends with you. If you don’t have a good relationship with yourself, you won’t have one with others. As simple as that. Take some time to just have a cup of coffee with you. Getting to know ones own thoughts, emotions and boundaries is key to getting more self-aware and will help you strengthen your intuition, reactivating that inner guidance we all have inside.
STAGE 3. ACCEPTANCE & NON-JUDGING
To rewire our brain we need to become aware of the patterns we have already made. A lot of the time we don’t allow ourselves the emotions and thoughts that we have. However accepting them is necessary to get rid of them. First when we do, we can start making conscious decisions about them.
STAGE 4. FOCUS ON YOU & THE REST WILL FOLLOW
Life starts and ends with you. However, very few of us are taught to help ourselves first and to show ourselves love and compassion, but it’s the most important part of a fulfilled life. All the most successful hits you’ll ever read about were inside jobs. Why would life be any different? It’s time to start defining happiness, success and anything else after your own parameters. You're the boss.
I am on a mission. For a long as I can remember -freedom was always part of my blueprint. And not just freedom for me, but freedom for all of us. It took me a while, and a series of not-so-pleasant events to get there. People would call me "spiritual" or something fancy like "enlightened" or an "awakened spirit". But truth is what I am doesn't matter, it's how I got here that does and I dare to say that anyone can get here. By simple training which will actually maximize your experience of life. Mindfulness is a human need and such a magic ability - we should all learn it hence I am on a mission to make mindfulness mainstream.

The times we are living in are challenging and the more people we have in a conscious state of mind, the more people we have ready to create solutions for themselves and others - the greater the chance we have of building a grandiose future for ourselves and the upcoming generations.
CAN WE EXPECT
HAVE A CONSCIENCE
WHEN THEY AREN'T
Disagreements. Strong opinions. Friendships ending.
Humanity seems more divided than ever. The only way for this to change is start moving towards one another - but how can we do this when our own values and worldviews are being compromised?
In this workshop we discuss methods, mindsets and tools on how to best handle disagreements and how to step out of old habits of argumentation and instead meet people with an open-heart.
