Enri Mato: What turns you on creatively, spiritually, or emotionally ?
Andja Lorein: All 3 aspects are linked. I am an adventurer, I need to feel alive, stimulated, and for that, I need to experience something through my body. It could be dancing, discovering a country, a different culture, meeting new people, laughing, try things… I am always up for new experiences, because it opens my mind and simply excites me.
Enri Mato: What’s you favorite virtue ?
Andja Lorein: Listening to my heart, be just, and doing my best every day. I use the 4 tolteques agreements every day since 15 years, and it changed my life. I truly recommend it.
Enri Mato: What do you think about Instagram ?
Andja Lorein: From my point of view, Instagram, like any other social media, is mainly dangerous. It alienates us from who we really are and prevent us from being connected to our essence. I suggest everybody to watches to social dilemma on Netflix to understand how bad it is. However, on the flip side, it gave to me the most incredible experiences, allowed me to meet amazing people and visit the most beautiful places in the world. The thing is that we have to use it as a tool, and not be used by it, which is close to impossible.
Enri Mato: If you had to pick, would you be a dominatrix or a submissive?
Andja Lorein: It’s a bit like choosing between arms or legs haha !! I have both sides in me. But I would say I am more of a dominatrix.
Enri Mato: What are the situations that make you angry?
Andja Lorein: I rarely get angry. Never at a situation or someone I don’t know. It’s only when I am emotionally attached to somebody. But generally, what makes me react is dishonesty, manipulation with bad intentions behind, when my freedom is threatened, or when something appears so obvious to me but the person in front of me can’t see it.
Enri Mato: What do you think about people who lost our codes?
Andja Lorein: We are all different, with different cultures, backgrounds and codes. As long as there is respect and no judgment, I believe it’s enough.
Enri Mato: Are you ready to fight for a cause, which one?
Andja Lorein: I already « fight » every day in a peaceful way to spread love and justice around me. I believe that little daily things can change the world. I think that the humanity is a beautiful race that deserve to be free and happy. My 15 years experience in psychotherapy allows me now to guide people toward this freedom and therefore happiness. I am actually thinking of setting up sessions of individual therapy/discussions with my audience. Even if I manage to make only 1 person feeling better, it’s a victory.
Enri Mato: For or against prostitution ?
Andja Lorein: If it’s the choice of the person to prostitute him/herself, and if this person is respecting him/herself by doing that, why be against it ? I am for freedom of the individual being. However, If this person is a prisoner or forced, it’s very bad.
