WELCOME TO YAKSHALAND
... a playful, healthy, fulfilling world in freedom of mind, body and soul, which you can be inspired by on the pages of my books
... it's a place where fantasy is needed, where life is a game, whether the sun is shining or it is covered by heavy clouds, where movement and food, which lets energy flow and opens the mind, are the daily basics, where to do what the heart enjoys, to laugh a lot and sometimes even cry is natural... where the need to learn new is balanced by time for relaxation and simple being... where there is enough of everything you just need to become simply happy...
... we all have this magical place in us... it starts there when we realize that with every thought, movement, action or non-action we create our world, good or bad mood, fulfillment, also health... what happens outside, we will not affect, but we can influence how we use all our energy... to create, learn new, dream and develop what we desire from the bottom of the heart and has a meanig for all...
... my dad said many years ago that I would one day earn money "on shamanism and live in a caravan". At that time, I was still making my living by designing clothes for my own brand. It was a very surprising prophecy from his mouth that is beginning to come true less surprisingly. The concept of Yakshamanism was coined by my cousin when she once made fun of me and my books. I don't have a caravan yet, but I actually live a pretty nomadic life, and I've always been interested in "shamanism and the like". Not that I would follow any specific direction, quite the contrary. From all the specific directions I take the pieces that resonate with me, be it yoga, Ayurveda, various philosophies and spiritual directions, I spice it up with the contrasts, I add a great deal of foresight, humor, relaxed approach and it works. And this freedom is the basic essence of my books, which I wish from the bottom of my heart to encourage you to cook your own mix according to your needs and tastes. This is the best way to happiness and health, strategy, diet, philosophy. The principles are the same, but each of us is original and so the choice of ingredients for our fulfilled life is up to us.
A few basic ingredients of "Yakshamanism"
... don't force yourself into anything that doesn't resonate with you internally. What works for one may not work for you, and vice versa. Tired of meditating in a certain way? Make up yours! Do you enjoy drinking coffee at midnight, even if someone says it's not healthy? It's for you when you enjoy it.
... experiment, try, taste, expand your boundaries, get to know yourself better.
... don't take it too seriously. It's supposed to be a game, a journey together, a life, an adventure, fun. Not all food needs to be organic. Is something wrong? Try new way! It's a game. Although it doesn't seem so sometimes.
... if you want, everything goes. It is up to us to dissolve the limits and create opportunities regardless of what is happening around.
... break the routine. Skip exercise, have something unhealthy. Even the best and healthiest, most in love behavior can become a stereotype, boredom. And boredom does not lead to health or happiness.
... not with the brain, but with the heart. No need to worry, it hurts and delays, everything is "made up". Just relax and listen to the voice of the heart.
... enjoy every moment to the fullest without trying to make it perfect. It already is.
And how Yakshamanism works in practice, you can read on the pages of my books. May they be a stimulating fun inspiration for your discovery journeys through a magical life,
with love, Katy
