My very first post – #MyFirstPostRevisited


A tag started by a blogger/writer called Sarah Brentyn, asking us to revisit our first ever blog posts! When I saw that my dear blog sister Ritu tagged me for this challenge I thought what a lovely way of doing a trip down memory lane. It is almost three years ago that I started blogging and it took me a while to remember that first post without checking.

As many of you may know, I started blogging because my publisher set a blog up for me together with Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. It was all part of a social media marketing campaign. I stayed far away from any social media by then. But my book  I’m Free made it happen… and I never want to miss it anymore. Meanwhile, my blog looks completely different and has grown with experience! And here it is, my first post from May 6, 2014:

My Book – A Breakthrough Experience!


It was a beautiful day in September 2009 when I sat in this little cove in Laguna Beach. I sat there watching the waves come and go and listened to their calming sound which let me drift into a state of meditation. It felt comfort, healing, and lightness. At that time I was in the middle of a marriage crisis and at a point, I wanted to get rid of my old life filled with fear, self-doubt, and dependency from the good will of the outside world. I was confused; I didn’t know what to change and how to move on. I did not see the path in front of me, but only the one behind me and all the fears I drew into the presence. By that time I had read many books to find back to my inner power and self-esteem and to find a way to live without fear and get the courage to stand up for myself.

A few days before I joined a workshop with Esther and Jerry Hicks and the next day a lecture with my favorite author Wayne W. Dyer. I sat in the audience listened to his words and got embraced by his radiation and peaceful energy. During that time I thought: I wanna do what he does. I wanna give what he gives. I wanna help in a way, he helps others.

On that day in September on the beach, everything seemed to be different. I was peaceful and quite. Within this calming atmosphere, there was a flame starting to grow inside of me. All of a sudden, my inner conception simply changed. I still did not know where my path would lead. But it didn’t matter anymore whether I knew it or not. The only thing that mattered was, to feel this loving connection to myself, which said: Don’t worry, follow the voice of your soul – this feeling that feels so true inside of you – and everything will turn out right at the end. No matter how rough times may seem, if you think and act in accordance with your loving core inside you will have the most significant change in life which creates your world new. You are the only person that knows her way. Be patient and trust yourself and you will always know the next step at just the right time. You don’t need to know more.

A feeling of liberation and deep faith ran through my chest and my whole body. I never felt that alive and clear about myself before. No hiding anymore, no fear anymore, no victim anymore – I felt totally free! And I wanted everybody who was struggling with themselves to feel this liberation and the knowing that in the end, it is always up to ourselves how we choose to feel. Happiness, Love, and Peace don’t have to be temporary emotions but are conditions you always carry within you to make your life the best ever. It’s been always there!

In Love and Light!

Here we come to the rules:

Obvious rules:

  • No cheating. (It must be your first post. Not your second post, not one you love…first post only.)
  • Link back to the person who tagged you (thank them if you feel like it or, if not, curse them with a plague of ladybugs).

Other rules:

  • Cut and paste your old post into a new post or reblog your own bad self. (Either way is fine but NO editing.)
  • Put the hashtag #MyFirstPostRevisited in your title.
  • Tag…um…tentwotwelve five (5) other bloggers to take up this challenge.
  • Notify your tags in the comment section of their blog (don’t just hope they notice a pingback somewhere in their spam).
  • Feel free to cut and paste the badge to use in your post.
  • Include “the rules” in your post.

Completely silly rules that I’m making up as I type:

  • Drink a glass of wine, bottle of beer, cup of coffee, mug of herbal tea or whatever floats your boat after you hit “publish”. (In other words, toast yourself. Go you!)
  • Read the post out loud in a Mickey Mouse voice.

Ok, so here we come to my tag choices:






Please feel free to participate. Of course, there is no obligation!

Thanks again to my dear sister for tagging me!

In Love and Light

What a beautiful post. And a first post at that. This line hit me: “Be patient and trust yourself and you will always know the next step at just the right time.” 💖 That is a difficult thing to do but a great insight. It’s fun and interesting seeing how everyone started out.
