Your mind can be likened to a garden where you plant seeds of beliefs and associated thought patterns. These seeds of beliefs eventually grow into flowers of emotional and physical experiences. Hence, it follows, that some thoughts are like ‘weeds’ that grow into painful emotional and physical experiences, while other seeds of beliefs are like the seeds of beautiful flowers, which eventually become expressions of compassion, peace, joy, beauty, and freedom.
Into Essence (TM)
MindShift Coaching has developed a holistic process to help individuals transform their lives in profound and lasting ways. The process is called Into Essence (TM) and involves five main steps. In each step, you are guided to go deeper into the essential aspects within your body, heart and subconscious mind that seek to be acknowledged. Once these essential aspects have been heard, felt and fully experienced, they can be transformed, released or integrated. This will lead you on an inner journey of awakening, healing and personal growth. Along these five steps, we also use the Enneagram personality framework to add further clarity and direction. Although our coaching ideally involves all five steps, the process will always be tailored to your unique needs and preferences
Sense the body
In this first step, you will be guided and supported to go deeper into your body so as to recognize and experience the full range of physical sensations that you hold in your physical form. This may include any aches, pain, numbness, tightness, stiffness, tingling or other energetic or bodily sensations. For this we primarily use a process called BodyWisdom.
Feel the feelings
Hereafter, we dive further into the feelings of your present experience. You will be encouraged to feel more fully any emotional sensation inside your body, may it be fear, anxiety, sadness, anger, guilt, etc. Here we can use breathwork, EFT-tapping, BodyWisdom or similar modalities to approach and embrace any feeling that has been surpressed or avoided in the past.
Find core beliefs
Once you have found, acknowledged, experienced and embraced the physical and emotional sensations in your body, we can begin to see the underlying thought patterns and subconscious beliefs that lie at the root of these sensations. We can seek to identify clusters of beliefs that function as both building blocks and stumbling blocks on your life path.
Shift the beliefs
In this fourth step, you will be guided on an inner journey into your subconscious mind, through a process called The Belief Closet. Here, you will experience and transform your limiting beliefs into new empowering ones. Your new beliefs will support you in creating a new reality in which you are more empowered to create a life of inner joy, freedom and fulfillment.
In this final step, we will use various other modalities to anchor and integrate your new physical, emotional, energetic and mental realities into your body and life. For example, we can use affirmations, meditation, body excercises or a special kind of prayer, to help you assimilate and fully embody the essence of your healing and inner growth process.
For your inspiration
Many times, our environment (the people around us, our society and the world at large) may seem fearful, tideous, challenging, even unbearable. Yet, as souls, we are given free will to imagine and experience any thought and feeling that we wish! In fact, there are infinite potentials of thoughts and associated feelings for us to choose from and bring into our reality. It is only our imagination, intention and choice that limit us!
Why do so many people, who have a near death experience and come back into their bodies, experience spontaneous remissions and (more or less) full healing? In my humble understanding (based on years of studying NDEs, plus a personal download, and various energetic experiences), I believe the following occurs:

What clients say
“Anna has helped me to gain more strength and clarity in life. With her support and encouragement, she has helped me to go deep within to reach life-essential insights, which I never would have been able to do by myself. Anna is a very warm, trustworthy, reassuring and fantastic person whom I recommend warmly!”

When you speak with her you get new perspectives and explanations like brushstrokes on a painting, that is, she communicates and explains solutions with a uniquely rich imagery. Everything becomes crystal clear!”
Anna-Lena B (past coach colleague)
“Anna has had a unique ability to meet me where I am in life. Anna has helped me to put words to my situation, and she has helped me to understand how I can proceed in a locked situation. Anna has a compassionate personality that makes it pleasant to receive help from her, which has resulted in me daring to expose my personality and move forward. These words I will always carry with me as knowledge of who I am, which is very valuable to me.”
Hanna D, Stockholm
“Anna worked with me very constructively and systematically according to the goals that we set up on our first meeting. Anna has a very good ability to listen to me, and to quickly and effectively summarize the core of our conversation… I appreciate Anna very much as a person, she is open and sincere, gentle and respectful with people. She is very engaged in her work, and you feel immediately that she wants to help and guide her clients.”

She met me with a kind and analytical eye; explored who I am, what my background and dreams are, what my most prominent characteristics are etc. With experience, respect and sensitivity she quickly came to understand who I am and how we could continue supporting me from there.”
