Our role models are essential to us. They influence us. Even though sometimes, we may not be fully aware of how much.
When we are children, our role models or teachers, tend to be our parents. As we grow older, the focus shifts to our friends and our immediate surroundings.
However, I would like to ask you to pause for a moment and think about your perceptions of life:
What do you think of life?
Do you believe that you chose to be born, or not?
Do you believe that what you see in front of you is what truly exists? Or do you think that it is only a tiny part of something much bigger and infinite?
Do you believe you deserve to be happy? Or do you think that life is just one long succesion of drama and problems?
Do you think that things happen in life by chance? Or that everything is related to vibrations and that in changing your own vibrations you can bring positive things into your life?
Now that you have thought about your answers, ask yourself if those answers are really yours, or if they are inherited from your family, your friends or your culture.
Our role models can influence us very deeply. Which is why it is important to ask ourselves occasionally, if our beliefs are really our own or the result of ideas we have inherited throughout our lives.
That’s why, at some point in our lives, we need the help of a new teacher, to help us shed some or all of what others have taught us. That teacher can help us to reconnect with our own internal wisdom.
Never forget the phrase “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear”
The majority of my teachers, have been masters of Kundalini Yoga. But apart from them, I have a particular affection for three persons. Next week, I will tell you all about those three people and I’m sure you will love them too.

And please share this blog post with your sisters, cousins, friends… or anyone you know… so we elevate the vibration of the world alltogether. Thank you.
Lovely words. I have my first ever role model at 34. I love the quote about when the student is ready. Thank you x
Hello Josephine, I love this quote as well… Many of our role models appear at around 30… the begining of a more spiritual path for many of us. Sat Nam, Gabrielle – Puranshant Kaur
