SINCE I WAS A LITTLE GIRL I HAVE FELT THE NEED TO INSPIRE
OTHERS TO LISTEN TO THEIR HEARTS AND I WISHED
TO TURN THIS NATURAL SKILL INTO MY "JOB".
I DO BELIEVE THAT IF WE DON'T STOP DREAMING, TRYING AND PLAYING LIKE CHILDREN DO, THEN EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE.
In fact I am Kateřina Jakšová and I was born in the Czech Republic. Katy Yaksha is a pseudonym that originated when I finished to write my first book inspired by following a big dream, which in the best sense of the word changed my life. I wished by means of that book to encourage as many people as possible to start listening to the voice of the heart.
"Yaksha" is the name denoting buddhist deities protecting natural treasures hidden in the ground, as I found out when I was searching for a meaningful pseudonym. That was a clear sign, harmony of souls and so in 2010 Katy Yaksha was born.
My first book was harshely rejected by a known publisher with the statement that: if I didn't change my adolescent style of expressing myself, rejoicing over every banal observation that came in my way and the opinion that "life is super with an exclamation mark", then I would never have a chance to succeed as a writer. I must confess that this took the wind out of my sails for some time, but I didn't change my opinion that "life is super with and exclamation mark". I continued creating and saved my further efforts inside my drawer together with the courage to make another steps in this direction.
Already as a teenager I used writing as a form of auto-therapy and I dreamt of writing inspirational books one day, sharing my enthusiasm, recipes for happiness, health and motivate others to follow a way of their heart. Already at that time I was interested in healthy eating along with regular movement and their effects on our body, energy and thinking.
The voice of my heart and my curiosity have lead me to try various non-standard professions, without knowing much about them or studying the field, apart from absolute enthusiasm for what I decided to do. I have been a dancer, a DJ, a fashion designer, I have run a boutique with self-made production.
A fashion brand, which I founded without any other previous experience in 2004, became very popular during a few years of an adventurous journey. Fulfilling a big dream of mine became a free inspiration to write a motivational novel Ten wishes or it is never too late to start following your unfulfilled dreams, which was published in 2015 at Rybka Publishers Prague. (Since 2016 the fashion label has been taken over by a close friend of mine).
In 2016 I took another risk. I left all current activities to be able to devote my time fully to writing and the journey of my life mission. In the autumn I self-published the book You can do anything you want, which the well-established publishers were not interested in publishing. The book became a bestseller and it has helped many people to bring back joy to everyday life and to find themselves.
Since then I have devoted my time only to writing and further experimenting in the field of a conscious life. I am grateful that my big dream has been fulfilled and thanks to this fact I am able to share what I feel in my heart. And it has also been confirmed that what we believe in with all our heart, what we feel to be our mission, there is a journey to achieve it. It might be untraditional, unusual and it might take a longer time to find its real essence and it will require many attempts and persistence, but there is a journey and it is ours. And no negative predictions and intimidation of people who are not satisfied in their lives for different reasons won't prevent us from achieving the fullfillment of our right journey unless we give it up ourselves.
By this time I have written and published other 6 books, which you can get in the bookshop all around the Czech Republic. All of them have one aim: to inspire and motivate towards the courage to get to know who you really are, to follow the voice of your heart and start living your life originally and this way give the best out of you.
You can live the way you want is a free continuation of my first book and it brings other observing and methods of how to live an authentic life. One-way ticket and Roma mi Amor are autobiographical narrations from my solo journeys towards the self-knowledge and my life in Italy.
The book Journeys of joy, love and happiness is a collection of inspirational stories and ideas from different travels within a few years. Another autobiographical story Believe in your dreams talks about a magical half a year spent at the countryside in Mallorca, the period which deepened inside of me the awareness of what brings us the most intensive and permanent feeling of joy and fulfillment.
My new book You are limitless is my personal recipe towards a free, healthy and successful life put together into 10 steps of simple exercises and methods towards setting yourself free from the bad habits and patterns and its replacement by things that work and lead towards a fulfilled life in harmony.
Since I was a little girl, I had dreamt of living on an island. Since the year 2000, when I took a risk for the first time and I followed the voice of my heart, I have been living mostly abroad and mainly at my dreamt-of seaside. By this time I have tasted life on the Balearic Islands, in Berlin, in Rome. Since 2015 my base was the south-italian island of Ischia, which I left in the spring of 2019 to explore new horizons. At the moment I am exploring the ocean horizons on the Bali island.
I joyfully welcome you in my world where you can play and experiment together with me. You will see that many things are easier than they seem to be. Sometimes it is enough to change the point of view, to choose a different path. But mainly listen to yourself. You already have everything what you need for your fulfilled harmonic life. All you need to do now is start to follow your inner guide again.
From the bottom of my heart I believe that from the pages of any of my books, at any workshop or conference you will draw inspiration and new insights for your free, healthy and successful life.
And before you start to read any of my books or doing anything else, I will share one thought which accompanies my days almost from the beginning of my life and which can be a motivation to set off for your own journey directed by your heart already today:
When I was almost three years old, I accidently fell into a bucket full of boiling water. The fact that I survived and that after a few weeks spent in hospital there was no other evidence on my skin that a small spot on my hip, could not be explained by the doctors. Then I got my first life lesson:
SOMETIMES EVEN THE THING WHICH SEEMS TO BE VERY BAD IS NOT THAT BAD IN THE END. NEVER GIVE UP YOUR FAITH. EVERYTHING CAN NOT BE EXPLAINED LOGICALLY.
THERE ARE MIRACLES. AND THE BIGGEST MIRACLE IS LIFE ITSELF AND ALSO THE MOST FRAGILE,
SO WE SHOULD BE LIVING IT AND NOT WAITING FOR ANYTHING.
with love and big smile Katy Yaksha
