In order to benefit as much as possible from the content of this module, I highly recommend that you share your experiences with the other GLOW GIRLS and write about what's going on with you. When we write down our thoughts, worries, and dreams, we need to define things clearly. We can't write or describe in unclear ways. So writing down what's on your mind will help you get closer to your goals and will help you get clarity when you feel confused.
AN INTRODUCTION TO GLOW SCHOOL
A brief introduction to Module 1:
Let's get started!!
This workbook (>> click on the graphic to download it >>) will help you get crystal clear on what you think BEAUTY, BALANCE and VIBRANCY means to you. For every woman in Glow School, it will be something completely different.
That's why I can't just teach you about "beauty". In fact, I will teach you how to find and live your own beauty :)
You can either print this workbook or just answer the questions in your journal. This is NOT a fillable PDF on purpose, because your subconscious mind NEEDS your handwriting to work efficiently! Whatever you write down with your hand, will be like craved into a stone.
Make yourself a cup of tea, take your beautiful journal and start the work! <3

SHARE & ASK
Once you've worked through the workbook, head over to the FB group and briefly share what BEAUTY and BALANCE mean to you. When do you feel beautiful? When do you feel balanced? Let us know!
Also, ask me any questions in the FB group!
THE POWER OF THE CHAKRAS
WELCOME TO THE CHAKRA WORLD!
Chakra is a Sanskrit word and means turning wheel. The chakras are turning wheels of energy in our subtle body / our energetic body that basically control all aspects of our lives.
Every chakra has a different color, and different colors have different vibrations. This is actually scientifically proven and the vibration waves of colors can be measured easily. The chakra colors are the exact same colors as the rainbows have, and it's what happens when you radiate light through a crystal pyramid: the different colors start to reflect or vibrate, and since they're on a different vibration, we see them as rainbow colors.
So what do chakras do?
These energy wheels are always turning in their vibrations. We attract things according to the vibrations we have in our chakras. Every chakra resonates with a different area of life (more details below), and you can influence them with your daily actions, beliefs, and with your lifestyle.
Each chakra can have an energy overflow or an energy deficiency. There can also be blocks and stagnant energy in certain chakras, which will block you from being in flow. It can also lead to major health issues in specific areas of the body.
The goal is to unblock all the chakras and balance the energies, so that PRANA (sanskrit word for life energy) can flow seamlessly through all the chakras and you can reach your highest potential.
The chakras begin at the bottom of our spine and go up to the crown, just like it's shown in this picture:

UNDERSTANDING THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND
the law of attraction
I'm giving you an introduction to the Law of Attraction, one of the most powerful laws ever!
an intro to The subconscious mind
The subconscious mind is all about our beliefs and programming that we grew up with. What you are today (no matter if you find it good or not so good), is the result of the programming of your past. With the thought you send out starting from today, you will create your future self.
If you're currently going through some challenging situations in your life, don't beat yourself up. For most of your programming, you were not responsible. It's only when you start to realize and wake up to all this information, when you understand that this is what created all the drama in your life, that you will feel the power you have in your own life.
So often (and I clearly include my past self here!!), we think we are the victims. That things JUST happen to us and we're so unlucky. The truth is everything is energy. And we attract EVERYTHING into our lives, good and bad.
So from today moving forward, you can work with that and reprogram your subconscious mind to a powerhouse that brings you anything you want :)
Might sound a bit too simple, right? It really IS that simple, it just doesn't happen overnight, so it's about being consistent with creating what you want. And we'll definitely go more into this!
beliefs & Affirmations
This document (>> click on the graphic to download it >>) shows typical negative beliefs around Beauty, Body Image, Work and Success, Health... It gives you the counterpart: the positive affirmations!
Read through these beliefs and circle / write down those you feel apply to you. Highlight the positive affirmations for these beliefs and read them everyday before you get out of bed.
The first moments of the day (that time when you can still remember what you dreamed, which we usually forget shortly after), is when your subconscious mind is still open to receive, so anything you say to yourself during those first minutes will be programmed into your subconscious mind!
Try it for one week and see what happens! :)

STATUS QUO VS. DREAM LIFE
YOUR VIBRANT LIFE - GET FROM WHERE YOU ARE TO WHERE YOU WANT TO BE!
We're going to do a little exercise to get more clarity on what's going on with you right now. Take your journal, play some relaxing music, and maybe even light a candle to make this a mini ceremony for yourself!
YOUR STATUS QUO
- How are you feeling in this very moment?
Write down 3 emotions.
- Where do you feel blocked?
Any area in your body that you felt not in flow as you were doing the meditation?
- What areas of your life do you think these blocks relate to?
Think of any specific situations that are going on right now that keep you stuck.
- What do you feel is your BIGGEST block right now?
- Do you want to get rid of this huge block?
- Are you willing to do the work to get rid of this block?
- How happy are you with your life right now?
- Rate yourself on a scale from 1 (=miserable, which you are hopefully not ;)) to 10 (=beyond amazing).
- What fears do you think are present in your life right now (fear of losing someone, fear of death, survival fears, money fears, fear of not being accepted by others etc.)?
HOW TO SET S.M.A.R.T. GOALS
In order for your subconscious mind (and the universe) to understand your orders, it is important to set clear goals! A goal to „be healthy“ is neither specific nor do you know when you achieved it! You might be healthy right now, but maybe not in shape. Being healthy for someone with cancer might be something completely different from what it means to a child.
So it’s important to be VERY specific when setting your goals! Here's how: with the S.M.A.R.T. Goals!!
Your goal needs to be specific, measurable as of you being able to measure when you achieved your goal, attainable, so maybe not living on mars or something that is a bit out of reach (well, we never know lol!), it must be relevant and it needs a timeline by when you want to achieve it.
If your goal is specific, but you don’t say by when you want it, it might just come when you’re 90 years old! So in order to achieve your goals earlier, you need to set a date (a month or a year might also be ok, depending on what your goal is).
YOUR DREAM LIFE
Now I want you to picture yourself 5 years from now:
- How do you want to FEEL in your future life?
- What is your biggest dream right now?
- Write down anything that comes to mind, NO MATTER how crazy this may sound!
- How will you feel, when this dream will have come true?
- How will you feel, when all blocks are cleared and you are fully in flow?
- What does your perfect day look like?
Be as specific as possible, even to the point where you think about what you wear and how it feels to be in your skin!
What questions do you have about this module? What came up for you? How are you feeling about everything? What specific situations have you experienced in your life that you'd like to share with all the glow girls?
>> Head over to the FB group and share your biggest dream with us (NO MATTER if it makes sense to you right now or not)!
SHOP Your oils
I've used essential oils for years, and e.g. always have a lavender oil with me I use it when I can't sleep, when I'm nervous, or can't control my thoughts. It gives me instant clarity!
There are so many oils for so many purposes You'd want to get more clarity o!n your chakra blocks first, and then, order some oils for whatever purpose you feel you need.
If you have any questions or are looking for specific recommendations, just post them in the FB group!
