I have never liked the etiquette and the grids; I was born as a free spirit!
I’m Dani, a yoga facilitator, vegan food lover, joy spreader living in Switzerland.
Here is my story of how I have come back HOME.
I didn’t fit in
Born in Italy, I hold a Master’s Degree in Architecture and have been working for more than ten years in the industry.
The truth is: I have been feeling in the wrong place since I was a tall, curly, red-haired, freckled little girl in Southern Italy.
This feeling of being out of place and somehow “weird” became even stronger when I grew up, but until my late twenties, I had no idea of how to change my life, how to feel home in my body, how to create a reality where I could fit in perfectly.
When I started working as an architect, I genuinely thought I was living my biggest dream.
The reality was so different than my expectations, though. I spent many hours in an office full of running computers, drawing in front of a screen. I couldn’t stop thinking that meanwhile, the life outside was flowing.
And I was missing it all.
I kept going for years, pretty much at the mercy of society, family, life events. I felt like life was “happening to me“!
At the same time, I started feeling stronger and stronger that I had a mission on this planet, and that mission was neither being an architect, nor any 9-5 job followed by retirement.
The awakening process
Awakenings can be painful.
I’ll be forever grateful for all that pain, though, as it allowed me to become who I am now.
The first wake-up call for me was seeing my mom dying of cancer after a long illness.
Apart from the atrocious sufferance I have been watching without being able to do much, I started doubting everything I saw. I felt like I was living an obscure dream where all the people around me were convinced to do the right thing, but what came out was a macabre dance towards death.
All this couldn’t be real; at least it couldn’t be my reality!
In those seven years, I saw in front of me everything I had never wanted to see. And I was almost entirely unable to react, to be proactive.
Too often, I felt a victim of life, like a raft in a storm.
From victim to creator
The second wake-up call was my body rebelling after my mother’s death.
I had several symptoms that no doctor could explain and was diagnosed with “chronic inflammation” and “benign tumors” and being labeled as “prone to tumors,” being told that that was my “genetic path” because of my mother’s illness. The only thing I could do, doctors said, was to check up my body regularly. No change in the died would have helped; there was nothing I could do.
I had never heard so many lies all together, but at the same time, I still didn’t exactly know how to react. What I knew for sure was that I didn’t believe one single word, it all sounded absurd!
My journey started
So I started researching by myself the “how” and why” that no doctor could answer.
And I finally realized the deep interconnection between nutrition, spirit, and illnesses, something that, yes, I had heard, but I had never truly understood.
My mind wasn’t connected to my body at all!
I started reading tons of books about nutrition.
The first significant change in my life happened at a physical level.
Not only I became a vegetarian, then vegan. I also started practicing yoga and started listening more and more to my body.
Later on, I dove deeper into yoga and meditation, and the more I reconnected with my highest Self, the better I felt.
And magically, my reality also changed accordingly: I was suddenly surrounded by mindful, loving people who supported me in finding my true life purpose. I have been literally creating a new reality around me by tuning myself with the frequencies I wanted to attract: frequencies of universal love, compassion, joy, and brightness.
Driven by love, not fear
My process of awakening and self-healing lasted years, as the wounds were so deep. I realized that many of the choices I made in my life were driven by fear: mainly fear of not being accepted or not being praised. I was always in need of other people’s approval, and I was living a big lie, wearing a mask every single day.
As soon as I surrendered to my true Self, and substituted fear with love, my whole life changed. I very rapidly met the right people, walked the right paths, developed the right skills.
For the first time in my life, everything I was doing felt just RIGHT.
Right for me.
I feel at the right place, in the right body, in the right life!
I’m on a mission to make the world a better place.
I offer my natural talents to bring joy, relief, luminosity to all those who I meet on my path.
