At the age of 19, I moved to London. It is important to note, that I was not the person I am today. In London, I studied History and Politics, and started to enjoy the freedom that came with being a young adult in a vibrant city of the world.
That said, I had fractures and traumas from my personal and family relationships. I did not know what it meant to be loved. I worked and overachieved in academics or jobs to prove myself, and while that hailed some merit, it is not the be-all-end-all of a happy life. I struggled deeply to see myself as someone who deserved to be cherished and respected. It is in London where I first encountered a women's circle and got into meditation. As you might already know, meditation has incredible scientific benefits to our brain and overall wellbeing.
I then met Toks in London, now 10 or 11 years ago. Wow. I am counting this as my longest friend- and mentorship to date with someone who is loyal and has always believed in me.
I remember the early days of coming to Toks's flat to participate in Full- or New Moon meditations. Toks was also teaching us about the healing benefits of crystals with her beloved Patric in attendance (rest is heaven ♡).
Throughout the years, working with Toks as my spiritual Mother, life coach and guide, has not only changed my life, but saved it. I grew from a girl into a woman. She showed me what it means to be loved. She has highlighted my gifts and forgiven my trespassing. She has taught me what forgiveness and respect means. She has helped me remove veils of misunderstanding from my eyes and created a clear structure in my brain that un-wired years of trauma, pain, anger, depression and anguish.
I have become a more kind person through Toks, someone who respects and loves others, and loves myself, loves my Soul and is deeply grateful to be on this journey of Life here on Earth. She has helped me strengthen my faith in myself, in God and humanity. I often say I am only alive because of her.
And today, 10+ years later, I am thriving! I am successful in my personal and professional life. I am happy. I am loved. I am able to express my love in a space space. Most of all, I am ALIVE. I am so grateful to mommy Toks. ❤️
And all of this... you can enjoy too by working with her. If you are in a tough spot, Toks is the person to help you. I promise you, your life will only improve by working with her.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything.
Amen.Lots of Love Maxime 🌹
