For Nathalie Weis, self-love as the only remedy

Looking at this woman with undulating hair, bright eyes and a smile like an invitation to travel, one could almost hear Jeanne Moreau humming the Tourbillon de la vie in Jules et Jim: “She had rings on each finger, lots of bracelets around the wrists. She had eyes, opal eyes that fascinated, that fascinated, there was the oval of her pale face…” But we are far from suspecting that this sunny woman, dressed in a dress as if she had just come out of the garden d’Éden, her arms punctuated with tattoos with messages of love and peace and her gaze soothed, had a chaotic and traumatic journey. Of Lebanese father and German mother, Nathalie Weis was born in Germany in 1971. Following the Lebanese civil war, her father was transferred to Iraq. She grew up in Baghdad and attended a German school. When the Iraq-Iran war breaks out, the Irani family is evacuated. This traumatic experience for the child she was unfortunately will not be the only one. Several events will follow where she will face forced displacement. The family moved to South America, first to Chile then to Venezuela, to return to Germany where Nathalie would obtain her baccalaureate. Dyslexic child, art was his way to communicate and to better concentrate. “Until today, she confides, when I paint I am very sensitive to the noises that surround me and can easily transcribe them in order. “It is first of all the profession of actress that tempts her. His parents, like all parents concerned with ensuring a stable future for their children, will dissuade him. She chose an artistic career and enrolled at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels where she obtained her degree in graphic design and advertising. Back in Düsseldorf, she was hired by an advertising agency, met her future husband and decided with him to return to Lebanon to invest, with the participation of her father, in a bar in the city center. Business doesn’t go as planned. In 2004 the couple left for New York, where she devoted herself to painting as an outlet for her traumas and exhibited for the first time. In 2006, on vacation in Beirut, she entered the list of French evacuees. Twelve hours of waiting later in a schoolyard with a one-and-a-half-year-old child on her arms, followed by two hours of waiting on a bus only to finally be unable to board, she will repeat the test after two days when she embarks on a commercial ship. Sitting in the engine room, she will arrive in Germany exhausted. She will develop a post-traumatic syndrome and decides to take charge.

From chaos to light

Being an artist, however, was not the only goal of Nathalie’s life. In 2006, she awakened to the interconnectedness of the universe and the law of attraction. With her sensitivity and natural gift for helping others, she found her calling and decided to become a life coach and certified NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) practitioner. In 2011, after a difficult divorce, she returned to Beirut to take care of her son, surrounded by the love of her parents. “My paintings are like a statement, filled with archetypes (like Freud and Jung) and messages. At that time, she admits, I became aware of my power to attract people who naturally confided their darkest secrets to me. She signs up for a coaching class and earns her American NLP Practitioner Certificate. With her knowledge and empathy, she practices successfully until today. She specifies: “The profession of coach does not require going into the past like a psychoanalyst. We take the present and direct it to a better path. It is a form of hypnosis where we reprogram the mind, we clean it of traumas, we break them to put the person back in his comfort zone. The mind is man’s best companion, but you have to know how to apprehend it with the words you speak. The NLP program is very sensitive to language. Nathalie defines herself more as a love coach rather than a life coach. For her, as in Buddhism, the mind automatically directs itself towards two positive or negative energies, fear or love. And the first love relationship that man has is with himself. Loving yourself first is the basis of everything. “We are made up of energy vibrations produced by our aura and my goal is to enhance the positive vibrations. What reinforced her beliefs in the energies was an episode in 2018. Following an intoxication she was rushed to the hospital in a near comatose state where a near death experience propelled her even more. far on the spiritual path. “I suddenly find myself able to read people’s energy and channel messages. This enlightenment gave rise to the idea of ​​oracle cards. To convey these messages to her friends and clients in a playful and interactive way, she combines her artistic skills with her heightened intuition. Nathalie has designed tarot* cards that contain her life experience and her learning as a coach.

Be your own coach

Seventy-eight cards designed to assess one’s energy as well as some future and potential possibilities. Seventy-eight cards where snakes, dalmatians, bees, pigeons, piranhas, polar bears foxes, crabs, cockroaches, toads, donkeys, octopuses and so many other beasts and insects are reproduced in brightly colored cartoons embellished with catchy phrases to convey relevant messages. Forgiveness, respect, trust, intelligence, desire, hope and peace are thus measured against jealousy, ego, lies, dependence, time passing and betrayal. Love often comes back in flames, in a bouquet of flowers, in sweet words, in messages, in farandoles, in song lyrics sparse with little beribboned or broken red hearts.

Nathalie has studied her symbolic cards with great depth and meticulousness, supported by her experience, but they are nonetheless full of humor. “Because, for me, love and laughter remain the best remedy for all the ills of life,” she says. His maps have proven to be an excellent tool, to teach, guide and enlighten. And to add: “The beauty of these maps is that you can be your own reader. They can be a wonderful tool to stir up certain mental blocks, unhealthy patterns or limiting beliefs and overcome them once and for all. However, the trap to avoid is to think that the cards will tell you the future. They are not a crystal ball or a fortune teller. They are the vector for informing existing emotions and relational dynamics. »
