Be like a chameleon! Life Yoga Coaching to Learn to witness and observe…

As the new year energies gather pace, projects adapt and situations change.  Have you noticed this?  

How is everything happening? Precisely in the way you willed it to for this year…. or, are you needing to think and be flexible?  To find new “positions” that help balance situations?  Just like on the yoga mat?

Here are some practical tips to become more of a “witness” to be able to “observe” the situations unfolding, rather than feeling “stuck in the middle” of situations, of negotations between clients and suppliers, this will allow you to respond in the best ways, with courage, with fluidity and with grace.

Just like a chameleon, you can watch and listen and learn and await with poise for the perfect moment to say the right things.. without pushing or pressing an agenda….

This is brilliant for resolving challenging situations and changing situations within all types of relationships – at work, within your romantic relationships, families and friends.

It will set you on a life-yoga path for your year ahead and help you be more in the flow of life – where the right things that really are best for you flow to you more easily!

If we feel ourselves striving and pushing to hard, it is because we are going against the current.

So give this a go and learn how to flow….  simply:

Be like a chameleon!

The animal card for a chameleon talks about being sensitive, being the silent witness, rather that reacting on emails and writing hurriedly to try and save and resolve, rather step back, allow yourself to become still and to breathe and to blend in with the background.  Then, as you watch events unfold, you can contribute sensitively to support the way that the situation is meant to flow.  This is not about being passive, just as in many yoga asanas, like Tadasana (Mountain Pose) we are actively engaged with life, rooting to the earth and to nature, relaxed in our body yet strong and connected, all muscles are prepared and ready to respond at the right moment, for the clearest next movements, following the next conscious breathe.

1.  Stop – look – listen:

To the emails, to the conversations, allow others to speak, to offer their perspectives, their ideas and their insights (every challenging or uncomfortable situation offers a LOT of growth and learning)

Watch the correspondence, look at the patterns in different people’s actions and behaviours, listen to the dialogues.

2. Remember – what is the HIGHEST GOOD? What is it that all of us in this situation wish to happen, to achieve, to transpire?

What is our common goal?

What is YOUR truth in the situation?  Does the achievement of the original goal REALLY feel good to you – or, now that you have looked and listened more deeply, are you happy if events happen in a different way? Could this open up more space and time for other opportunities to blossom?

3. Reflect – on the truth – and when you are asked for a response – reflect the truth!  That is all you need to do! Just like a chameleon allow the light and the true colours to flow through you.   This will help you see things for what they are, to help you clarify the best path of action for you and for everyone concerned.

Study The Bach Flower remedies at the Buddha House Healing Centre










Ibiza is the home for many courses about holistic healing. 2012 is set to be a very magical year and this is a very special course. The Bach Flower Study Program at Buddha House, Ibiza hosted by Joan Jacobs gives you the opportunity to study and train as a Bach Flower practitioner. You will learn about the Bach Flower remedies in depth and how to prescribe them. The Buddha House Healing centre is a beautiful and natural environment, a perfect setting to study in and meet amazing people. Located on the top of a mountain it has breathtaking views across the Island. The fresh mountain air is cleansing and purifying for the mind, body and soul.

The remedies were discovered in the 1930’s by Dr Edward Bach an English physician, he identified 38 flowers and plants that had the ability to heal the emotional imbalances of the body resulting in an overall equilibrium of the mind. Dr Bach was a physician and Homeopath who spent his life searching for the purest methods of healing. He believed, as many doctors do today, that attitude of mind plays a vital role in maintaining health and recovering from illness. They work by treating the individual rather than the disease or its symptoms.Today these safe simple remedies are used world-wide by medical and complementary health practitioners, psychotherapists, counsellors, dentists, vets and private individuals. The purpose of the remedies is to support the patients fight against illness by addressing the emotional factors like depression, anxiety and stress, and are particularly helpful for the many people who feel generally tired and unwell without a specific medical diagnosis.

The course is taught by Joan Jacobs, holistic healer with 25 years experience as clinical healer, educator and speaker. Her clinical expertise is addressing mental, emotional and spiritual patterns associated with disease and activating the body’s energy system to restore health. To find out more about the teacher you can read an online interview hereJoan conducted an interesting interview with the director of the Bach Flower Centre in the UK, Stefan Ball.
