Exceeding Expectations

To receive the best inspiration I felt like picking a card from my favorite deck of Gateway Oracle Cards by Denis Linn. The card I picked is the one above. The year is still very young, and this card appears as a fantastic message to start it. Dream big and dare to expect the impossible to happen.

Only then will we follow paths that can lead to the desired outcomes. Otherwise, you already stop on the first step of the stairs, turn around and feel sorry for yourself that you are seemingly not worthy enough. They don’t realize that what they believe in is all that matters. Whatever they believe, whether something is possible or not, they will be right!

If someone is convinced that the path is useless, too long, too complicated – simply impossible, then they won’t make any move towards their goal but every possible move away from it. Going for something with the expectation that our current knowledge suffices is an illusion. So, it needs some consciously adventurous thinking because we won’t step on familiar ground. Yet, the more we trust the journey, we will nevertheless step on solid ground, no matter how unknown it is. With the goal in our sight, the heart as our lantern, and the mind as our physical companion, we can reach everything! That’s why for example, smartphones exist. Back in the 80s, I had not considered taking pictures or browsing through the internet (what internet?) with a telephone. But someone has…

Look at your life like a book. Much has already been written, but there are still so many blank pages. It’s up to you how you fill them. Make a bucket list and consistently check them off. Think about how you want to see your life, other people, life in general, or yourself, and simply be that person. No one can make you do or be anything unless you allow them to. Many things get thrown at your feet, but if you see yourself as the architect of your life, you have control over how you put the bricks together. You better put them together in a way that supports you and your further journey.

So, dream big and don’t restrict yourself. Anything is possible. Just because it doesn’t physically exist yet, doesn’t mean it can’t be! Believe in yourself and your dreams. They come from a unique being and lead through matching unique landscapes and to a personalized destination.

This is your day, your hour, your moment – give it a go, and take the first step, right now!

In Love and Light

The purpose of my blog is to inspire and shine a light on the beauty and power of the wonderful being inside your body. You came into this world to share what only you can give. Remember who you really are, conquer the world the way you always wanted to, and become the blessing to us all that you were meant to be.


Wonderfully said Erika… and I have several books by Denise Linn , and didn’t know she had also a tarot deck brought out. it looks lovely..
Your words here took my eye:

“Look at your life like a book. Much has already been written, but there are still so many blank pages. It’s up to you how you fill them”

It really is up to us to write our story and to create our desired ending… Which is why I am so passionate on creating my own vision of our New Earth …

Back in the 80’s we thought nothing of travelling miles with no connections to anything.. And because we were not concerned or worried about our car breaking down, or getting lost.. Somehow that rarely happened..
Now you don’t leave the house without the phone in our pockets… 🙂 What we focus upon we bring into our awareness and experience.. ..
So lets concentrate on our Magnificence and exceeding ALL Expectations…
Great post dearest Erika as all your profound thoughts are.. ❤ 💛🙏✨

Very true. We are not focused on the object or the goal but are distracted by trivialities. We have more information and get it much faster – more to pollute our mind with and lose the sight of what really matters. That’s how we only create problems. As I quote somewhere said: When the phones were tied to a wire, men were free. I think a lot of our mental problems are concerned to modern technology and its options.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have a problem with modern technology but not everyone is able to use it in a healthy way.

So, let’s concentrate on our magnificence and use its uniqueness for our unique way of filling our lives with.

Thank you so much for your beautiful comment. Thoughtful as you are 💖


Beautifully written Erika, it is indeed a path of our own making. We can sing, hum or drum our fingers…it is all still our song however we wish to make it. A lovely tune dear lady, may we all dare those notes 😀❤️🙏🏽

Haha, you got me, had to look that one up. I sensed the singular but didn’t truly ‘know’ it. And yes, we do need our uniqueness to blend with the whole. A chorus if you will 🤣❤️🙏🏽


Yes, the view forward, the fire in your heart, and the determination to do what it needs to get there is a recipe for success. Even if it doesn’t work as originally planned, but you are so much further than ever before.

Yes, let’s do one step every day – no matter how big or small – just one a day. Thank you, Martina, have a great week. Btw. com’è l’inverno in Ticino?


Quasi la stessa temperatura a casa come l’abbiamo… hehe.
Thanks a lot, and you too, Martina.
Und eigentlich könnten wir sogar auf Deutsch schreiben 😄

Eh, war auch mehr ein Scherz, da ich angefangen habe, auch in Italienisch zu schreiben, obwohl wir die gleiche Muttersprache haben… fand ich einfach witzig. Aber ist doch toll, wenn man so vielseitig ist, gell 😅
