My Spiritual Journey

Philosophy and Approach

My philosophy and approach to counseling and coaching is based on my own personal spiritual journey. It is a combination of Western and Eastern practices and techniques. Specifically, to heal myself I’ve studied several spiritual teachings and practices. These include Zen Buddhism, Primordial Sound by Deepak Chopra, and finally the Art of Living Happiness Program.

My Spiritual Journey- Meditation

Meditation has been a key part of my life for over 20 years. I can honestly say that it saved my life. Meditation has been a major part of my spiritual journey. As a result I perform focused breathing exercises on a daily basis. Ideally you should implement a meditation practice for yourself.

However, you also want to eat healthy, exercise and get sufficient sleep as well. Finally, what is also paramount here is to have nurturing relationships. These are cornerstones to good health and well-being.

My Spiritual Journey with my Spiritual Masters

Through the years I have learned from many teachers and spiritual masters. My favorite teachers include Wayne Dyer, Louise Hay, Debbie Ford, Thich Nhat Hanh, Dalai Lama, Deepak Chopra, Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi, Esther and Jerry Hicks, Marianne Williamson, Donna Eden, Napoleon Hill Steven Covey, and many others.

My Spiritual Journey

Core Beliefs of My Spiritual Journey

*I believe in the power of love and forgiveness.

*Yes I believe that we all continue growing until we die.

*Also it’s true that I believe that there is not necessarily one Soulmate. Depending on our life stage and vibrations as a result we attract people who are on the same vibration level as us. When we outgrow them, it is time to move on.

*Definitely I believe in honesty. Lies have a way of catching up with you.

*Without question I believe in healing naturally without medication in every situation if possible.

*We will always experience challenges in life but is up to us how we handle them. It is all about our attitude.

*I believe in a Higher Power but not necessarily God as a white man

*Finally, I believe that we all have our unique calling and gifts to share with others. There is NOBODY like you. So go ahead, speak your voice and share your gifts with the world! Will you join me in the Mateja Petje Philosophy Approach?

My Spiritual Journey includes Nutrition and Supplements

During the last couple of years I also studied how nutritional and supplements affect our health, including mental health. I gained invaluable insights from a functional medicine approach, as postulated by Dr. Mark Hyman, Dr. Marshall Greenblatt (Integrative Medicine Psychiatrist) and Kelly Brogan.

Click to read more about Dr. Brogan “We’ve been told a story about depression – that you are born with a chemical imbalance that requires lifelong medication. Get ready for some myth-busting around the benefits, risks, and the truth about what depression is.” 

My Spiritual Journey and Limiting Beliefs 

Medications have side effects and some of them can be pretty severe. What I find is that most of my clients have negative programming and limiting beliefs. This brings about symptoms of anxiety and depression. When they gain awareness and insight into themselves as a result great things begin to happen. If they address these beliefs and start changing and replacing them for example we see massive changes take place. This is the essence of what I’ve learned during my spiritual journey.

Medication during My Spiritual Journey

If we couple this change along with eating healthy, exercising, getting enough sleep, receiving support, as well as engaging in nurturing relationships, soon there is no need for medication anymore. Even though I advise all my clients to discontinue medication under supervision of their doctor or a psychiatrist. When there is also trauma involved, we need to address that as well so consequently in my practice I use a variety of top techniques such as Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Clinical Hypnosis.

Mateja Petje Client Testimonial

“I worked with Mateja for almost a year. See I was devastated at the news of my husband cheating on me. Mateja with her gentle guidance and care helped me to not only recover, but get my voice back and I started putting myself first and ultimately we made a decision to separate.

She also recommended a child specialist dealing with divorce for children. Now I learned to communicate more effectively and to listen thoroughly before speaking as well as having a neutral person assist me with talking to my spouse about the state of our relationship was extremely beneficial. I highly recommend her. You get a lot of value for the money that you invest in.”

Why a Dolphin as my brand image?

Mateja Petje Philosophy Approach includes my love for all animals but specifically my love and appreciation of Dolphins. Dolphins are known to be friendly, social, playful and also very intelligent and compassionate. I was told by my clients, friends and colleagues that I possess all the aforementioned qualities.

In Mythology and in history dolphins are known for heroic acts and for their consideration for distressed humans, dogs, and even horses.

Like humans, they also live in social groups. They distinguish themselves from other whales and fish for their ability to be “masters of the acoustic.” They can even understand simple sentences and syntax!

“My Journey to Self-Discovery”

My book titled “My Journey to Self-Discovery” was published in 2010 and is now available on my website or by visiting This book is a self-analysis of my life which I hope serves as an example of the struggles we all go through on our journey to self-enlightenment.
