the 7 realms
the 1st realm – intentional living
Living your Purpose & Dreams
Without intention, our days and weeks are filled up with other people’s requests and priorities. By getting clear on what it is you’d like to do, you tell the universe too and helpful “coincidences” will start to line up for you.
Being intentional is key in creating your life your way and the secret of those that succeed in making their projects successful and their dreams come true. In the Heart-shaped life community we encourage and inspire each other to master intentional living.
the 2nd realm – the heart
Intuition & Inner Wisdom
In the Heart-shaped Life community we explore ways to make the guidance of our heart a powerful voice and guiding light to create deeply satisfying, balanced and joyful lives in touch with nature, spirit and the beauty of everyday moments.
the 3rd realm – nature
Rooted in the living world
When we are still and present in nature we can sense the energy that is underlying everything. Nature connects us to our essence and is deeply nurturing, healing and invigorating for our body, mind and soul.
In this community we celebrate our beautiful earth home and learn to bring nature into our lives in many different ways.
the 4th realm – the now
Enchanted Everyday Life
Although we have plenty of dreams for the future, both for ourselves and for the world, we also want to fully embrace the now and all the beauty and joy it offers.
We help each other tap into light-heartedness, mindfulness and self-care to create a quality of life where we can thrive. Creativity, art and craft is a part of this too!
the 5th realm – wholeness
Authenticity & Human-kindness
The feeling of being not good enough is strong for many of us, we may have received these messages in school, in our family, or in society or our wider community. Our inner voice is often more an inner critic than inner coach. As a result, not everyone is comfortable showing or being their true self. And we often judge others like we judge ourselves.
In this group we inspire and encourage each other to explore who we truly are and support each other in being our authentic self. We do this by showing up and sharing what is in our heart in a community of kindred supportive souls We also practice “human-kindness”: being kind-hearted to others and ourselves, and embracing & accepting what it means to be human with compassion, forgiveness and love.
the 6th realm – spirituality
Unity, Energy & Co-Creation
Science is now confirming what the saints and sages have shared with us for millenia; everything around us is energy/consciousness and we are all One. But most of society is not aware of the energetic nature of reality and all its implications and potential.
In this group we are excited to explore spirituality, metaphysics, unity and energy and what these mean for our individual lives and for the world.
the 7th realm – community
Connection & Belonging
We humans are wired for connection and a supportive community around us helps us to thrive. When we are encouraged, inspired, celebrated, witnessed and held on our journey by a supportive tribe it’s so much easier to stay inspired and excited about following our heart and showing up as our true self in the world and to achieve things that we can’t easily do on our own. This is the magic of a community of kindred souls!
Although belonging and connection is something we’re creating together in the online and energetic space that is the Heart-shaped life Circle, together we’ll also explore ways to connect more closely to family & friends and our local community.
what happens in the community
Monthly themes help us dive deeper into topics and could include activities, challenges or invitations, discussion, examples, stories, polls and questions.
Some of the ideas for monthly themes include: “Human-kindness”, Intuition, Creativity, Rest, Rewilding, Gratitude, Quantum physics, Active Imagination, Belonging, the list is endless. It goes without saying that we are always open to ideas from the community on themes!
Next to the monthly themes there are also other conversations happening depending on what is alive in us right then – any member can bring up any other topic in a post or ask questions to encourage conversation.
These are the planned regular items:
–monthly Zoom circle meet-ups
–weekly intention posts to help you with goal setting,
–invitations to share about what you are creating for your business or leisure, and to ask for feedback,
–interviews with inspiring people creating their Heart-shaped life
–conversations around books & book reviews
There will also be a two weekly book discussion group. With Flora as our guide we will embark on a journey to SELF through the book “Women who Run with the Wolves” by Clarissa Pinkola Estés. Flora has run this book club with life transforming results for the participants over the past two years, so we are very excited about her offering it within the Heart-shaped life Circle.
About Women who run with the Wolves:
“Women who run with the Wolves is a seminal work on the inner life of women. A creation of poetry and power, it began a revolution and continues to transform the lives of millions around the world.
Clarissa Pinkola Estes reveals how within every woman there lives a Wild Woman, filled with passionate creativity and ageless knowing, but repressed for centuries by a value system that trivialises emotional truth, intuitive wisdom and instinctual self-confidence. Clarissa’s book shows how, through the interpretation of story and her psychological commentary, we can reclaim and rejoice in our true feminine power – how we can awaken within the depths of our souls one who is both magic and medicine”.
community culture & guidelines

so that we can:

saying yes to your dreams & purpose
By saying yes to the heart-shaped life circle, and by saying yes to the community guidelines and culture, you are really saying YES to your dreams, bringing out your potential, living your purpose and why you came here to this planet at this time; to thrive, to share your gifts and make a difference.
Posts don’t have to be perfect, they can be raw, messy, tear-filled and desperate too. The important thing is that we want to be there for each other, and say yes to each other.
a sacred & safe virtual space
To create the sacred container where positive change and transformation can happen for us, it’s good to remember that we are in a virtual space where we don’t look each other in the eyes and we aren’t physically together when we post & share vulnerable things with each other. We also don’t always have an immediate answer, idea or reply ready. And we don’t want anyone to feel forced to reply with something substantial when that doesn’t come naturally. To nonetheless help us create a safe virtual space where we feel heard, witnessed and acknowledged when sharing we can make promises to each other…
- We promise each other to be present in the group a couple of times per week to read the posts & comments of our fellow circle members when we feel emotionally and energetically able to do so;
- We promise to respond to each other’s posts & shares whenever possible. Even a warm Emoji can feel similar to a nod or supportive eye contact during a real life circle.
- When we have the intention to support each other and be there for each other as a group, we can trust there will always be someone to listen and respond in every moment, while at the same time there is no expectation for everyone to respond to everything all the time.
Other things that can help us connect on a deeper level with each other:
- Share from our own experiences with our own stories, by creating our own posts, or by responding to others’ posts, to help us dive deeper into the topic and bring out the group’s wisdom for all to benefit from;
- Ask questions in response to sharings. Questions can help us go deeper and get more clarity about what is going on, what is holding us back. It can lead to
breakthroughs and new realisations.
- Share from a personal perspective; I feel, I think, I experience… This way you honour your own truth while holding space for different perspectives & experiences.
some common sense ethics
- In general, cheer people on, celebrate with them, and support them on their journey.
- Be respectful, kind and compassionate in our interactions with each other.
- What we share in the circle is confidential and should not be shared outside of the circle without permission of the member(s) involved.
