Uplift My Life Today Podcast – Ep. 10 – How your birth process still impacts you TODAY – Sharon King

 

(You can also listen to this podcast from iTunes, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Breaker, Pocket Casts, and RadioPublic)

 

Yes, you’ve read it correctly. Our birth process STILL impacts us TODAY!

 

Knowing what I know now, it all makes sense. Yet, when I found out about it for the first time, I was gobsmacked, to say the least.

 

I got to know this as I went through sub-conscious mind therapies during my journey to rise back from the burn out I experienced at the end of 2008.

 

In getting back to a full life again (with an intention of never to experience a burnout again ever!), I discovered what human’s subconscious mind is and how it has been impacting my life. Most assumptions we have about ourselves, others and life were formed before we turned 7 and they make us respond or react automatically to situations. Repetitive assumptions (beliefs) become hardwired and automatically influence our behaviours.

 

In one of the sessions when I traced back the limited beliefs that triggered the needs for me to over achieve without taking care of myself, I landed in a memory of the time that I was in my mother’s womb! It was SURREAL yet fascinating at the same time.

 

I never thought of that period of my time consciously. Heck, I didn’t even know that I had a consciousness then.  It was mind-blowing!

 

That was not the only time I was taken back there by my subconscious mind. There were a few more times and each time I realised I formed beliefs that still ran my life until the point of healing.

 

I was intrigued and started digging reading materials about consciousness in the prenatal period. In Biology of Beliefs book, Dr. Bruce Lipton, a renowned cell biologist and an expert in Epigenetic suggests that Subconscious mind is a part of our mind that serves as a database of our stored programs primarily derived from the programming a child receives from the time we were in our mothers’ womb up to the first six years of life.

 

I then came across Sharon King, the creator of a subconscious mind healing method called Matrix Birth Reimprinting. After reading her book, Heal your birth, Heal your life, I decided to learn her method to support my clients even deeper in their healing journey. As I did that, I got to read two other books:  The mind of your newborn baby by Dr. David Chamberlain and Being born by Robyn Fernance. Sharon mentioned Joseph Chilton Pearce as her first mentor in understanding the importance of bonding process between mother and babies. You can find his work here.

A whole new world opened up to me!

In this podcast episode, I invited Sharon to share with us why and how our birth process impacts us today (the same is also true for anyone who had been a part of giving birth process) and why it is important to heal the traumas created then for our lives today.

Please share this episode with your friends and family. The more people become aware of this, the better as it has an important piece of information about us. The more we know about ourselves, the easier it is to show up in our lives in peace and with ease.

Enjoy this lively discussion!

Love,
Astuti

Uplift My Life Today Podcast – Ep. 8 and 9 – Insights from a Monk turned Surgeon – Jehan de Soyza

Part 1:

 

Part 2:

(You can also listen to this podcast from iTunes, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Breaker, Pocket Casts, and RadioPublic)

 

What I find to be VERY helpful in moving through life following my calling is to be connected with people who are in their journeys moving through theirs. The reflections we share fuel our journeys.

I am fortunate to have these friends in my life. Excitingly, each of them has a very unique path.

I’m putting this blessing forward to the world, to accompany you too.

 

Introducing:  “Intentional Life”, a series in my podcast.

In it, I reflect together with these Go-getters about their journeys and what it gives them. Lessons from the horses’ mouths!

 

In this first episode, I sat together with Jehan de Soyza. Jehan is an Eye Surgeon Trainee in Royal Perth Hospital, Australia.

 

 

     

As a part of his intentional life, Jehan lived and worked as a Monk for 9 years in multiple continents.

He didn’t set out to be one from the get-go. He was a Business student. In fact, that’s how we first met in 1995.

 

The reasons of his evolution – his intentional life – why and how he’s been doing it, the struggles, the presents, and how he brings them into his life today is what we’re discussing in this episode. We reflected together on success, happiness, meditation and self-growth.

The chat is split in 2 parts:

  • The first is about why he chose to serve as a monk, the journey to become one, and what his ascetic life then was like (Mind you, I’m super curious to hear details about it, aren’t you?)
  • The second is about what he learnt from it and how he continue to integrate them into his life today as a husband, a father, and a surgeon.

 

Enjoy and be inspired!
Astuti

Uplift My Life Today Podcast – Episode 7 – Are you breathing consciously?

(You can also listen to this podcast from iTunes, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Breaker, Pocket Casts, and RadioPublic)

 

BREATHE…

I heard my therapist repeating this to me as I received her help to rise back from the burnout I experienced at the end of 2008.

BREATHE…

While I followed what she asked me, I was puzzled. I didn’t understand at all the context of why she asked me to “breathe” when I was obviously breathing.

I did, however, develop a “new” habit since then: to remember to consciously breathing regularly everyday. I still keep it until now. I can’t speak highly enough how conscious breathing habit changed my life.

 

In this episode, I invite Michelle Sabatini to share with us in-depth what #consciousbreathing is, what it does to us, especially in helping us to un-stuck ourselves from any situation anywhere, and how to do it.

Enjoy!

Freeing myself from a 39-year imprisoned mind

I lived the first 39 years of my life in prison.

Not the prison with bars and guards, but rather a prison of my own mind. There was just something blocking me from the freedom of an unencumbered life.

Since I was 30 years old, I tried everything from exercise to yoga, meditation to various other esoteric therapies. Things improved but somehow I couldn’t break free. I wondered if I ever would.

 

After learning about Marisa Peer’s RTT therapy last summer at the MindValley conference in Tallinn, Estonia, I decided to have a look whether or not someone was practicing this technique in Zurich. Thankfully I found and met with Astuti on April 9, 2019.

I am now writing this on May 21, 2019, and I cannot begin to tell you the impact our session has had on my life. I tried everything before, and although I am sure those efforts contributed to the triumphant success of the hypnosis therapy, the breakthrough that occurred on April 9th was truly remarkable.

Astuti expertly and compassionately guided me through some difficult memories from my childhood and allowed me to relive them in order to construct a new internal narrative. This new narrative is based on understanding and love, a brilliant change from the anger and fear of the past.

 

Everyone who knows me is absolutely floored at the changes. My energy is intense and pristine, physical weight is just falling off of me and I am so much more present. I was always an empathetic and kind person, but my sincerity is now palpable and I am constantly noticing ways to be of service to others. Whether a smile, simple helping hand or significant offer of support…I look at myself now as a karmic warrior seeking to spread love wherever possible.

My life is now based on gratitude and appreciation. The anxiety and stress has gone away, and I can now look at the difficult periods of my past life with happiness because the road ended here. I have no regrets and I see life now as a giant karmic jigsaw puzzle. No more tunnel vision about my own deficiencies or struggles, but rather a wide open mosaic of awareness and love. And where love is not yet present, I see opportunity for it to flood in and heal.

 

I look back at all of the people who were there for me in my life and I am just overwhelmed at the kindness in this world. I cannot even relate to my life prior to April 9th, it’s truly like another lifetime. It’s as if Astuti helped me wipe slate clean and I am, at 39, able to start all over again.

The most important lesson I learned was to never give up. If I had, I would have never met Astuti and I would not have tasted this new reality. There are many ways to heal yourself and others, hypnosis being one of them. But, whatever you try, you have to commit to it. Commit to being one with love in this world and it can happen for you. And if you commit, you will one day run into someone like Astuti who can help you break through to the other side.

 

I’d like to share a quote from Terrence McKenna which sums up my thoughts on my journey:
“Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted, who really touched the alchemical gold, this is what they understood. This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering it’s a feather bed.” Terrence McKenna

Uplift! A journey from burnout to inner peace

“Whatever you choose to do in life,

make sure that you’re also doing it to help others”.

 

I was 16 when my late father said this to me. With such an intense gaze, he said these words.

 

I heard him, loud and clear. I remember it like it was yesterday. He didn’t have to say it often. I experienced him being consistent with this all throughout his life – dedicating his life to science to improve lives. He also followed his passion to develop young scientists in any way that he could.
 
His words have been staying in and with me since.
 
I experienced a burn out at the end of 2008. Not many people knew in-depth the ins and outs of it – what happened to me; what impact it had on my life; and how I came out from it. Only a handful of people; after I managed to move forward from its worst point.
 
This experience changed everything in my life, progressively. If my life then was a house, that house collapsed to the ground.
Since then, I’ve been rebuilding my “new house”, one layer at a time, and one area at a time. Carefully, with a lot of support.
It has been a journey filled with realisations, decisions, and forgiveness.
 
When the opportunity to write and share my story showed up in February this year through “Ignite Your life for Women” book, I jumped in full heartedly.

 

The book consists of real life stories about how 35 women moved forward after facing life crises, such as grave illnesses, divorces, separation, death, burnout, financial ruins, grieve, career dip, fear of aging etc when one has to start over from the ground up.

“It’s time”, I said to myself. I felt called and ready to share my story about the burnout.
I had only one intention: to offer what I’ve learnt about how to rise from the ashes, like a phoenix, and start to thrive again in a different way. It was about bringing my learnings to be of use for others.
 
What excited me more was that the proceeds from this book’s sale are going into charities that empower women. Perfect!

 

 

 

“Papa, this is for you”.

I closed my eyes, sent my prayer and pressed “send”. My application email to be one of the authors in this book made its way. The rest was history.

 

Burn out, like divorce, death, illnesses, etc. are one of the mini-deaths that can happen to anyone. Overwhelming and lonely often describe the emotions that come with it.  That was also how I felt.

Not anymore now. It doesn’t need to be.

Get this book (through this link, you can download it in kindle for free until May 20th 2019), read my story “Uplift! A journey from burnout to inner peace”, read other stories that call you in this book, and let these reflections accompany your journey. Write a review, share your thoughts on what you feel about it. Afterwards, share this book with others. Regardless of the title, the content in this book is helpful for all.

No, you’re not alone. You don’t have to be. And YES, you can rise.

 

In loving memory of my beloved Dad, Dr. Suwarto Martosudirjo, the man who showed me how to be a loving support for others.

 

Love and light,
Astuti

What are your words?

When I did my career change and lifestyle overhaul starting in 2016, I asked myself what MY WORDS were then.

 

In a number of meditations, 3 words came to my awareness: Inner peace – Truth – Visible.

 

I integrated them into my daily intention and in no time, I started peeling off fears and limiting beliefs, one layer at a time.

It’s still going, as there seems to always be the next level. It becomes more and more subtle yet it’s there.

I’ve come to terms with the truth that I’ll always peel off the next layer.

 

This delayering Self of fear, doubt, anything that are not truthful that still play out in my system brings visible impact that not only I experience, but seems to benefit others too.

I show up more for myself, my family, my friends and my Clients.

Abundance flows in and out of me and I feel more peaceful being in and with it.

 

Life is a journey, as it is a healing journey to return to truth and inner peace within.

 

Pausing once in a while to breathe and reflect, I thought I write this here and now.

Let me ask you – What’s your word? How does it impact you everyday?

 

Wishing you all the beauties that life offers wherever you are 💜💜💜

Love and light,

Astuti

Unleash your creativity!

“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have” – Maya Angelou

 

We are all born with creative potential. Upon unleashing it, innovation happens. This is why we have the invention of tools, technology, and more. This is why and how humanity invents things.

 

Creativity is the use of imagination or original ideas to create something. Many people think they have little or no creativity but that’s simply not true, everyone has the capacity to be creative. Sometimes growing up, people forget that they are creative so you just need to be reminded that this is a part of who you are. We also often think creativity is reserved for certain industries or careers, like artists, film, music however it is needed in all walks of life.

 

Creative thinking is the skilled application of knowledge in new ways, allowing innovation. It is an area that is becoming more and more valued as technology automates tasks and work. Looking at the old world with new eyes is the way forward, coming up with ideas and solutions that are relevant in this fast changing day and age.

 

Believing that you can be creative is often the first step. Together with the right mindset, encouragement, environment and practice, ideas can start flowing. Being creative is a part of who you are, so allow yourself to create.

 

Join us for this workshop and find out what is keeping you from creating easily. We will discuss your current beliefs and thoughts as a group, followed by a guided hypnotherapy session, helping you to uncover the root and cause of them. We will work together to introduce positive beliefs that get your creativity moving.

 

Past participants to these workshops often say they are very positive, supportive, encouraging and often enlightening.

 

Note: There will be a group hypnotherapy session. Hypnosis is safe and you are always conscious. Contrary to some belief, you will not give up any control. People suffering from epilepsy and psychotic illnesses are advised not to join. Please note that lunch is not included and payment is done through an external partner (Eventbrite)
