We had the good fortune of connecting with Demetra Jiova and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Demetra, how has your perspective on work-life balance evolved over time?Work-Life balance – I came to realize- is the most important factor of a happy fulfilled life. And so, yes, over time, it did change significantly for me.
I used to express disproportionally my “male” energy (we all have both male and female energy in us), meaning the energy of needing to succeed, to make a name for myself, to make it, and by doing so,I was neglecting having fun along the way or taking good care of me and I wasn’t slowing down, nor was I finding adequate time for all the things that I enjoy, not just my work and career. The funny thing is that once I came to realize that and started relaxing more and once I did find time for all the things I liked, that is when great success in my professional life came too.
Ancient Greeks used to say that the secret to happiness is: “Μέτρον ἄριστον” which roughly means: “All things in moderation”. That is truly the key to a Fulfilled Happy Life!
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your Teachings, can you tell us more?
Love For All, which also includes oneself, is what my teachings are all about.
I combine Quantum Physics with Spirituality and teach people all around the world, that we all are the Absolute Creators of our Own Reality, of our human experience, moment per moment, per moment. Once one remembers this truth about oneself, then there is nothing they can’t be, do or have. That is the joy of my life, to be a mirror /a teacher for others, to mirror back to them this universal truth and give them all the tools to start playing with this universal law, because it is only through one’s own individual experience that this truth can be re-membered and owned again consciously!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I am a citizen of the world, I travel a lot and have lived and called home several cities and counties around the world. Whenever a friend visits me in Los Angeles though, the most important thing is to see the city through the eyes of acceptance.
I will show that friend the richness of experiences that this wonderful city and state has to offer: food and amazing restaurants, beautiful and vast beaches, wonderful hiking areas, nature and so many parks, the Hollywood scene, the variety of architecture but most importantly the people! The variety and openness of the people that come from all places around the country and the world, and who all share the need for acceptance of who they really are, and so, they are the ones who offer it unconditionally to all others, too.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
