What might Coronavirus mean for our world and the humanity?

It is hard to look ahead into the future right now, but we can already see some trends that signal how the Coronavirus might shape the world and the humanity. Working from home at a large scale has created a precedent that will see more remote job offers available in the future.  Children schooling on digital platform will also change the way we look at the educational system. Feeling threatened by a small virus that can barely be seen under the microscope and is not even considered a living species by the scientists will remind us that, despite its significant developments over the past decades, medicine is still experimental. There could be a change in how we look at our humanity in the large universe. Encouraged by the advancement of industrial, technological and digital revolutions we, humans, have learned to believe that we hold supremacy in the cosmos. In the …

How has Coronavirus changed the world

I am currently stranded in Southern Spain, 10 days after lockdown and I’m reflecting on my learnings from the Coronavirus pandemic to date. At close to 3 months since the Coronavirus Pandemic started, we seem to step out of denial and gradually accept the reality of our lives. Denial is a natural response in these circumstances as it protects us from suffering whilst our minds transition from a orderly life to a rather chaotic one. The facts are worrying: as I write today, over 400K people have been infected worldwide and more than 18K have been killed by this virus. On the reassuring side, over 100K people have already recovered around the world which reinstates a sense of hope in us, people. More countries are now imposing lockdown, although measures differ from one place to another. Many people wonder why do authorities take so long to impose strict rules. Probably …

Ho to stop resisting change

Change is a frightening process. It seems to be one of the most challenging aspects of our life. But what makes us resist change so strongly? In my client work I’ve seen various levels of resistance to change and I found some common causes in the process and as many ways of fighting them: Safety. We tend to feel safe in a familiar environment. Change means giving up the comfortable NOW for the unknown of the future and we all find it difficult to handle insecurity. This keeps us in unhappy relationships, in jobs we hate and in destructive patterns of behaviours. I encourage my clients to first identify the pros and cons for changing, then visualise that change happening and expand their perspective beyond the present moment. Exploring the benefits and loses from change helps us develop a more accepting stance towards that prospect and breaks down some of …

How to find clarity and direction in 2020

At the end of each year we all look back at our past experiences and draw a line on our achievements, unfulfilled dreams, earnings and loses. In an absolutely natural way we all look forward towards the future with new hopes and aspirations and optimistic plans for a better life.  Sometimes we struggle to find clarity and direction in life and this time of the year is a good opportunity to take a few moments and explore how we can sort that out. A good start is to look back at our early years of life to understand how we were  molded by your families and school.  We can then explore how the outer world continued to influence us and this is where most times the confusion is coming from.  Our world has always been led by charismatic and seductive leaders and we all follow various “gurus”, fascinated by their …

5 mental errors that prevent you from growing

Most people live with the desire to grow and develop and have a happy and fulfilling life. What stays in our way of achieving this is sometimes our own programming and a number of reasoning errors we inherited and continue to pass over from a generation to the other. Mistake no. 1: We think life is easy This is wrong. Human existence is not always easy, we like to delude yourself it is, because this is what we’ve been told.  Life on Earth is actually demanding and challenging on many levels and our complex and unfinished human nature cannot help us adjust with ease all the time. The reality is that we have not been encouraged to talk about our difficulties when we were little and we continue to live like that default, pretending we cope with life and ignoring our real inner feelings. Shame, guilt, inadequacy and fear mix …
