My Intentions & Words for 2021

I love choosing words that will be themes to focus on all throughout the year. ⁠

For 2020, I had selected “Pleasure” and it presented itself in a way I didn’t expect at all. ⁠

With the pandemic, I found my way back to the simple pleasures of life: observing insects go about their day, cuddling the cats, hearing the sound of my steps on the forest floor, smelling & picking up wildflowers, breathing… ⁠

Having this word as a focus has made me very attuned to my energy, my rhythm, and what makes my daily life enjoyable.⁠

This year, I’ve decided to concentrate on some qualities I’d like to develop. ⁠

A guide named Bruce

Watching Springsteen on Broadway on Netflix…

I’m blown away.
I laugh.
I cry.

I had a pretty long outburst of tears during the segment dedicated to Clarence… Pow, every fucking time!
Even 7 years after…

This show is such a perfect continuation of Bruce’s autobiography.

He got me remembering wonderful details from my childhood while sharing his own.

He got me to reflect about my life, my dreams, my fears, my hopes thanks to his own reflections.

Recently, I have felt called to rekindle with some of his songs that only a few years back were feeling too dark, too deep and filled with shadows for my novice Soul.

But now, I feel comfortable in these waters, having had to explore a bit more of the dark side of myself in the past few years.

I have always struggled to maintain long-term friendships. Probably because from one year to the other, I can completely change skin and be born anew… That doesn’t sit well with consistent relationships, obviously…

But Bruce’s world of music & poetry has always always been there for me to reach out.

He has been the most reliable companion I’ve had in my entire life.

When others were sneaking out of my life after I’ve given them enough of what they needed, Bruce, well he remained there, in my head, bathing me with musical hugs and messages of hope, not asking for much in return, just for me to be true to myself ALWAYS.

Talk about unconditional love…

In my field, a lot of people have spiritual teachers, gurus.

For a long time, I’ve searched for one thinking that I needed one like everybody else but I could never find one. Not one that rang true to me.

One day, I realized that I just didn’t need a spiritual teacher or a guru.

I don’t.
I have Bruce.

He has taught me integrity, hard work and leadership.
He has taught me friendship, love and marriage.
He has taught me how to think for myself, how to rebel.

He has taught me spirituality without using any words before I could even understand English.
Every time I was hearing his music, my Soul would just vibrate in ecstasy, almost exploding.
That’s how I discovered the way to my Soul.
Because he lightened up the path with his magic.


And with each new show, album or book, he lights up new parts of my Soul to explore.

He has been all the role models I needed to be guided in my life.

His words and music have provided the support I needed in the dark as well as the beautiful soundtrack I needed in the light.


I sincerely hope you have someone like that in your life too!

And if not, why not give him a shot?

If he was one of my guides, maybe he can be yours too. 😉

Discovering Your Soul Family

The Soul Families - Soul-Driven Life

Recently, as I was mindlessly browsing a second-hand book app to find inspiration for my next read, I stumbled upon a book that immediately triggered excitement and infinite curiosity: The Soul Families by Marie Lise Labonté*.

It’s a book written in French by Marie-Lise Labonté who I believe is originally from Montréal, Canada.


Channeled in 2001, it describes the 13 different soul families as well as the various positions (or roles) a soul might have in its family.

As I was reading, I could feel a deep resonance with one of those families (The Crossing Guides for me) and I could recognize my friends & loved ones as belonging to some of those families as well.

Although attempts to put people in boxes should always be taken with a grain of salt and we should take the time to see if, how and to what extent we resonate with them, I still found it incredibly validating to see how mind-blowingly accurate my current purpose & personality were with the description that was made of the people affiliated to my “Crossing Guides” soul family.


For this post, I’ll only explore the different soul families but I might do another post later about the positions INSIDE a soul family if that interests you. 😉

I’m thinking about you.

I think about you - Soul-Driven Life

I’m thinking about you.

I know you’re feeling confused and scared right now, as it seems chaos is everywhere.

I know you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the fear, the suffering and the sadness you feel inside of yourself and out there in the world.


I know you feel all this deep inside yourself and it’s too much to bear.

I know you’re exhausted yet you also can’t sleep.


I know you feel alone and scared and you wonder how this will pan out and if we will ever get out of this.

I know you question those in charge, you doubt their ability to make adapted decisions.

I know you wonder how you can protect yourself and those you love, and how you can help bring this horror to an end.


I also know you’re strong and resourceful.

I know you understand the need for daily routine changes in order to support the greater good.


I know your human qualities get revealed in times of crisis.

I know your heart is big and your resilience is legendary.


I know you’ll do what it takes to help those who need it.

I know you are adaptable and creative and will find new ways to live, new ways to love, new ways to thrive.


I know you will get through this stronger, wiser, kinder.

I know you. I believe in you. I love you. ❤

Getting out of the panic mode

Getting out of panic mode | Soul-Driven Life

Last week, I went through an intense panic phase related to the Coronavirus.

Two weeks ago, while my mom was visiting me in Venice, the number of cases in the region started to rise quickly and we decided to go back to France to avoid getting trapped in the country.

Feeling completely appalled by the lack of directives from the French government, we decided that the responsible thing to do was to go on a self-imposed quarantine to protect the people around us in case we had been infected without knowing it.

While in quarantine, as I started developing a cold, my chronic fear of being sick blew up completely out of proportions and with it, the fear of having infected my mom.
