My name is: Magda Kay
Business: Sensuality Coach
Location: South-East Asia (main base Koh Phangan, Thailand)
- What do you love about what you do?
Freedom. I was never good with authorities and hated when others would tell me what to do (well, I still do…). Being my own boss is the best part of what I do. Even if I was doing the exact same work but for someone else, I would feel confined and frustrated. This is really the most important thing.
Secondly, is being aligned with my talents. I am a teacher at heart. Once I understood it, it’s as a huge rock was lifted off my shoulders. I understand what fulfils me in life. No matter what I do, it’s teaching. Whether it’s coaching, giving talks or working privately with my clients, I am a teacher.
And finally it’s the feeling that someone is actually growing and healing. Knowing that my work makes a difference and helps people let go of emotional burdens, feel more empowered and increase the quality of their lives – this brings such a huge satisfaction. I feel that my work (and myself) matter. That I get to make a difference. I think one of the biggest pains in life is feeling there is no meaning to it. When we help others, that gives the biggest meaning we could ever find. I feel truly blessed that I get to do what I do.
- What did you want to be when you grew up?
I always wanted to be on stage. I wanted to dance and act. Even today I still consider doing it as a side thing.
- Who inspires you?
Different people at different times. Wherever I am, whatever I’m building and whatever I’m struggling with – a person who has already done it becomes my inspiration. So it really changes every month.
Some of the people I follow quite a lot (for business inspiration) are Brendon Burchard, Gina Devee, Matthew Hussey, Layla Martin. There are a few of my close friends who are my constant inspiration in my personal life.
I am always inspired by people who do something different than most of the society. Who were not afraid to choose their own path and who are savvy, smart and making it work.
- What is non negotiable in your week?
Time for myself, especially in the morning. I wake up at 6 and the first 2-3 hours are for me – praying, yoga, reading, etc.
I need quite a lot of alone time to recharge. Because I set the rules (how much and when I work), if I ever feel like it’s getting too much, I can always take a break.
- Tell us one thing that not many people know about you!
Ok, let’s get naked and vulnerable. When I don’t want to deal with something, when I’m hiding from the unpleasant feelings, I binge. My weight has a tendency of going up an down by up to 3 kg quite easily because of that. I am quite hard on myself for that. There is a lot of self-judgement.
- Tell our Life, Body & Soul Notes readers your favourite tip to look after your body, live the life you love, and have a soul fulfilled life.
Your body knows what it needs and it’s telling you. But because we are always busy, there is always noise, we don’t hear it. We keep ignoring its messages and instead giving our body things it does not want (nor need) just to shush it.
Imagine babysitting a 5-year boy. He is nagging you, wants something from you, but you want to watch TV. So you give him a soda to leave you alone, while all he wanted was to pee.
We do that with our bodies 🙂
So pause, stay in silence and re-connect with your body. If you have that connection established and if you choose to do what your body asks you to, you don’t need to follow any nutrition program or work out regime. These are great guidelines but they are created for modern people who have to be told by others what to do (cause they don’t hear the messages from within anymore). But these plans will never work well, because they are generic, no matter how much you try to personalise them. And listening to yourself is way cheaper 🙂
- What would you like your epitaph to read?
Hmm… Frankly, I don’t care. Ok, I know it sounds cold, but here is how I look at it.
When I die, I move on. I’m not sure where, but I do believe my soul keeps on going.
Whatever is written on my epitaph is the past, something I’m leaving behind. And I don’t look back at the past.
Let me add one thing here. No one actually lives in the present. It’s a great thing to strive for, but unless you’re enlighten, you will have the tendency to either live in your past or your future. I fall into the latter group. I am continuously thinking what’s next, going in my mind into the exciting things I would love to do. So this is what I mean that I don’t live in the past. I simply have almost all my focus on what is coming next.
