Truth, Purpose, Progress

BrainyQuote.com

What I share here, on my blog, in my books, at my talks, or with anyone I talk to, is my personal truth. It fits who I am, and it fits my progress. I am aware that truth is never final. Each truth is a small stepping stone that leads me to the next particle of truth. It may expand what I have already considered being the truth, or it may put a new face on it. I would never demand anyone believe it because who am I to say what is right or wrong since I believe that truth is subjective. The truth I like to share as part of my inner calling, is a truth that makes me feel good. It strengthens me, broadens my perspective, and keeps my mind curious about what triggers my heart to discover. By sharing it, I hope to trigger something similar in others.

Emerging Into Grace

After the crazy busyness and hectic of the past weeks, I am enjoying it even more more to sit on my patio and let my inspiration flow for writing my post. I was just so relaxed that I emptied my spirit… and kept in empty… lol. So, I decided to pick a card getting inspired.

You Only Need To Believe!

We all have dreams. Even those people who say they had put their dreams at rest. That they still think of them confirms that their dreams are still alive. It happens that life shatters some specific conditions to realize a particular dream or expectation about the future. But only because this one of them cannot come true doesn’t mean we need to throw the whole dream box into the garbage. Sometimes we need to take detours, not knowing where they lead and why they have to be taken. However, no path walked is in vain. Sometimes the greatest dream lies in a sideway.

Do you know that? Either out of the blue or in a steady development new opportunities open up. You are getting offers for a new job or a better position, you see something that makes you think of taking new steps, of learning something new or of going bigger in business. An idea, a vision forms, and is ignited by the enthusiasm it brings. In your excitement, you are talking to a close person and… you only hear reasons why things won’t work out or get counted all the obstacles that “may” occur. Read more ›

Denzel Washington is one of my favorite actors. Right, who cares…lol. And what has it to do with my Monday post? After listening to a song on YouTube I stumbled over a speech of Denzel Washington at the Dillard University. Of course, I had to check it out and was amazed. I had no idea that he was such a fantastic motivational speaker. I am sharing the 8 minutes speech (with German subtitles) below. In general, he is talking about things we basically know but it is in the way he conveys and explains them. He nails everything in a way that reaches heart and mind at once. In point 2 of his speech, he said Fail Big. Read more ›

Journey

 

Looking outside the window

Dreaming of memories to be

Longings which tear my heart apart

Confirm what burns inside of me

 

Sometimes I only have my dreams

I follow step by step

Keeping the goal close to my heart

To push through obstacles and thread

 

Maybe your eyes cannot see yet

What’s shown already in your heart

But that is where you write the script

And where the magic stories start

 

Looking outside the window 

And smiling at the sky

The memories of things to be

Will never cease to make me fly

The Fear to Succeed

Bildergebnis für what if you realize how powerful you are

So often we don’t start a project because we are afraid of failing. We are afraid of being questioned even before we started or before a result is shown. We are afraid of being criticised about how we do it or even THAT we do it. We are afraid that people are making fun of us because we are doing something they might have never dared to do themselves. Or we are afraid because our project also means showing a part of us which we kept hidden for a long. But there comes a time when all those fears are not strong enough anymore to keep us from going for our dream. They cannot keep us from stepping out of our comfort zone anymore. We are full of excitement and enthusiasm and yes, we try it with all our heart and passion. And then it happens…. the door opens up! Read more ›

Breaking Out and Taking Action – The Later The More Difficult

Bildergebnis für moving on quote

Last week I participated in the Three Day Quote Challenge. I picked “New Beginnings” for my challenge theme. It turned out as the inspiration for this post.

We all have times in life when not everything is roses. I always say that in the end, we need to look at the complete package. If it looks and feels good some less convenient parts are bearable or don’t weigh that much. It helps to gain the necessary energy and tolerance for remaining peaceful or for facing single challenges on the road. But if we get used to “overlook” the negative side, that positive attitude can become tricky. Read more ›

Imagine sitting on the top of a mountain and looking down into the valley. High up above, you see everything from a distance, the bigger picture. You see how streets are leading to each other, how small creeks are leading into a river, how the river flows into a lake. From up there, you understand how everything works together in order to make it all a complete and how necessary every little thing is. Read more ›

You Are Stronger Than Your Ego

 

 

104803-Marianne-Williamson-Quote-Ego-says-Once-everything-falls-into.jpgI believe that the ego is not only the bad guy who needs to be fought. I rather think that it is a very helpful part we created over time. On one hand, it can support the path of the soul with its strong will. On the other hand, the ego can help to find out who you are and who you are not. It is a creation of the mind – your mind and your creation. That means that you have the power and can create it in each moment. It is created by thoughts and can, therefore, be controlled by the choice of your thoughts. The further away we are drifting from the true self the more power the ego has. It can show up unexpectedly although we think we already know that guy and its tricks. But in a certain situation, it appears reflexively before we even notice that we are already in its claws again. It is then to step back and see where we would end up if following its direction and what if we chose the direction of the self.  Read more ›

When Demons Leave!

380102-Caroline-Myss-Quote-The-soul-always-knows-what-to-do-to-heal (1).jpg

When I posted a quote about forgiving two weeks ago there was a suggestion to write a post about it because the subject is really big! I knew I already had posted about it. Since I am pretty consumed by life at the moment, I thought why not reposting one? It also makes a nice sequel to last week’s Monday post:

Were you ever in a great and happy mood and then out of the blue you were flushed by feelings that caused a deep sadness? And you don’t even know why? That happened to me last Friday. We had great weather, I was happy and cheerful and all of a sudden I had a song in mind which I did not hear for years. I love that song a lot but while I started singing it a heavy desperation kicked in and I didn’t know why. Read more ›

What is the greatest motivator you can imagine? The joy of making your life more than it is now. This has nothing to do with being discontented or even unhappy. It is actually the other way around. It is the knowing that each step we take in life leads us to another platform. From there we see new things which trigger something wich was lying dormant within us waiting for the moment when we are ready to wake it up. Read more ›

6a00e0099839558833015432530641970c-pi

… BUT TO GUIDE US SOLVING THEM OURSELVES! THE ONLY THING WE NEED IS FAITH!

How often are we raising our hands and crying to God for help? But what do we do next? Are we waiting that Gods waves His magic wand and fixes everything just like a Genie “your wish is my demand”? Do we really think we realize the whole picture of the situation in which we might only play a tiny role? The situation might be part of a much bigger plan. Now if things do not change or dissolve as we desire we get the idea that God left us alone and is not interested in us. That is such a big misunderstanding. Read more ›

You Need To Feel It!

sarah-betty-quote-motivation-the-sky-is-not-the-limit-your-belief-system-is.jpg

Due to some really busy days, I hope you don’t mind that I repost something from August last year. I know that a huge number of my followers don’t know this post yet and perhaps it is a nice reminder for the ones you did read it already. 

Whatever it is you are feeling is a perfect reflection of what you are in the process of becoming – Abraham/Ester Hicks

This sentence was hanging on my kitchen cupboard for the last 6 years. It made me aware of the fact that what I encounter in my live as positive or negative is not something that is sent to me from a higher force but is a reflection of how I encounter life.

img_7596-cropped

Thoughts have a strong impact and influence on the way we look at life. They shape our belief system and control our emotions. Emotions are responsible for our reactions. The more often we think a thought, the more we believe it. May it be through repeated experiences we have built up an opinion, through the words we have heard of others, or even a combination of both.  And one day it is part of that belief system.

The belief system lies even deeper anchored within ourselves. From here we receive our reflexive directions. When familiar situations happen – even if the last time was years ago – the belief system opens up the file and sends the stored message. What lies in the belief system defines our feelings. And here we go.

I recall the quote above: Whatever it is you are feeling is a perfect reflection of what you are in the process of becoming. What we feel is what we believe in. We don’t even think about it anymore. That is our personal truth. And we are living accordingly to this personal truth. This truth again directs our thoughts reflexively. We see the world from that truth, we act from that truth, we talk from that truth, we think from that truth. And we will see the consequences from this all unfolding in our life again. We can tell a lot (not everything) from the way our life is unfolding from what we believed about it in first place.

belief-system-2

Now when we want to become something different from what we see showing up now, we need to change the feelings. The feelings are the powerful wave which connects with the same energy in the outside world. But how to change feelings which are based on an automatic belief system? Just the same way like the belief system was programmed. We simply need to feed that belief system with different thoughts first. We cannot simply delete what we don’t want to think anymore. We must nullify the negative thought pattern with positive thoughts and then make a set up with the thoughts we want to create our feelings (actually, continue thinking the positive thoughts). Sounds more difficult than it is.

It definitely takes a lot of discipline, because the reflex of our belief system is strong. But once aware that it is in our hands what we decide to think makes it easier. We need to shift our thoughts from where they are to where we want them to be. Think from the end. Be what you want to find in your life. What do you want to find in your life? Look out and you will find it. Whenever the old view comes back, pause and look out again for what you actually want. Practice it again and again. It won’t take long – perhaps only days – and you have already reprogrammed a file in your belief system. Do that with every attitude you want to unfold differently in life. You will see within a very short time that something starts to change. You will perceive people differently and they will notice something  is different about you. You radiate differently and that activates different reactions in your surrounding. Change in progress! Now see what happens. You will love it.4

As long as you don’t believe/feel what you think, your thoughts will fade away into the air without any result. Your feeling tells you what you really believe. That’s why the feeling as the strongest creative power has to be aligned with your needs.

That way I changed my life dramatically within half a year. I am very aware of what happens around me. Change means that some things fall apart in order to let new things appear. I don’t resist upcoming challenges and struggles. They always show me that something new is on the way and conditions need to get into a new order to make it happen. Right then, I am even more tempted to remain in a faithful state of mind in order to let my feelings work for happy unfolding.

For some years now I am running up a stairway to heaven. Sometimes I stop to catch my breath and it can happen that I get a little dizzy when I look down. But not for long and my view goes up again to take the next step.

You can make it! And you can start right now!

In Love and Light

I told how they are responsible (consciously or not) for the miracles we are experiencing in life and that most of them are co-created when many put the same or similar conviction into their beliefs and convictions. After I had scheduled that post a friend of mine sent me the quote above. It is again about that little seed that carries a garden of wonders inside. But there is a different message behind.

The Fear to Succeed

So often we don’t start a project because we are afraid of failing. We are afraid of being questioned even before we started or before a result is shown. We are afraid of being criticised about how we do it or even THAT we do it. We are afraid that people are making fun of us because we are doing something they might have never dared to do. Or we are afraid because our project also means showing a part of our inner being, of the real person. But there comes a time when all these fears are not strong enough anymore to keep us from going for our dream. They cannot keep us from stepping out of our comfort zone anymore. We are full of excitement and enthusiasm and yes, we try it with all our heart and passion. And then it happens…. the door opens up!

open-door-sky1 (1)

Here is one example of my life that is one the most remarkable because it was one of the earliest of such experiences.

Many of you know that only 7 – 8 years back I would had never dared to talk in front of people, to share my own thoughts, to stand tall for what I believe in even when no one else believed in it. I would have never dared to say something at all without checking before if there are some who would agree with what I say. Otherwise, I said nothing at all. Then I had my breakthrough 7 years back. I only need to think of that moment and my eyes get watery because I will never forget that feeling of breaking down the walls of my prison.

16812-happy-journey-tips-image.jpg

Here I was, standing in my full light. That light made me see immediately where my path led and I started writing I’m Free – Awareness of Who You Are by Discovering Who You Are Not. I did not know nor did I want to think too far ahead if that book would ever be published but deep inside I knew exactly that this was the journey I was on and the destination I headed towards. When I was done with the manuscript, had given it to others for proofreading, and worked over it again, I felt ready to try something that felt simply impossible to me only 2 years before. I dialed the number of a publisher in order to ask if I may send them some excerpts. They accepted…… and I was full of fear!

fb_import_intg_1372434921_11099.png(Ok, this one is not really in context with the next paragraph
but it was just too funny not to add…😄)

Was I afraid that they wouldn’t like it? No, I was terrified that they would love it! The light definitely illuminated my path. It showed me all the things that are now coming my way and I felt overwhelmed in both positive and fearful ways. Can I handle this all? I could be taken serious! But I was not used to it! I might have to speak about all the things I believe in and what I saw as blessings in life for everyone. But was I ready to do so? I have always dreamed about it but….. HELP…. it works out!!! I felt like losing control over the developments.

fba045ca735810922f6b832e92e82c25.jpg

Thanks to my ego pride (yes, the ego can be very helpful) there was no way back… I had given myself a promise to never ever return to my old prison. And that means that I need to let my light shine in order to see the path… step by step! As you know, they accepted and my blog only exists because of the English version which was published two years after the release of the German book. Meanwhile, I have given several lectures, have written for newspapers and have even given 3 English live radio interviews. I accept right away because I never want to give my brain the time to block the plans of my soul. I feel where I have to go and I will never stop following that inner feeling. Did get used to my light? No, not at all! It feels as if I discovered it every day anew. It is a bit scary…. but much more wonderful to see that the world stands wide open to me!

1bb7dcfd8fc0a465bd29d35853ef87d8.jpg

Sometimes we go for something and don’t really consider it to work out. We do it in order to grant our soul its peace because then we can say that we tried it. Even bigger is the surprise (or the shock) when it works. And it scares a bit more because we feel mentally unprepared. Nothing stays the same anymore. But when things are going smoothly then it is the proof that it is your path and your time- whether your mind is believing it or not.

EmilysQuotes.Com-Motivational-inspirational-strength-positive-Marianne-Williamson.jpg

When we are not used to the bright shine of our light we can be shocked and scared by its immense creative power. The light that we are is pure creative energy. When we let our light shine and only then take action we are on our path and that path will always – all life long – lead to new places. Because we are meant to grow. We are meant to evolve. We are meant to LIVE! It is ok, to be irritated by your light because it is the most amazing power and it is even living within you. But never be scared of it. Trust, that it will always illuminate the path your soul chose way before it came into this body in order to fulfill its plan and give your life the sense and meaning you long for. Your soul is nothing else but a peace of the Almighty.

So when you let your light shine, God shines through you.
That is what the world needs so badly.

When have you been excited the last time? Did something turn out the way you wished for? Did you meet lovely people? Did you succeed in something you worked for hard? Did things you were waiting and longing for finally come true? How did it feel? Weren’t you filled with adrenaline? Weren’t you filled with a feeling of immense power? There was happiness, gratitude, contentment in abundance, right? You saw that in the end things are well. You felt what happiness is about, what joy is about, perhaps even what life is about. But most of all you felt so very deep in the most positive way. And yes, that is what life is about.

The purpose of the ego

Sitting lonely in my room
Looking out the window
Staring at the darkening sky
Not knowing where to go to

Pondering ‘bout shattered dreams
Of feeling such a pain
Of never gotten any chance
To finally win my game Read more ›

You Will Heal

Last week a read a beautiful poem on Belinda’s blog Reach for the light. When I came to that one line “You will heal” a story started spinning in my mind. What is it about that healing? It is said often and sounds so simple that time will heal you. Does it? Can time really heal? Read more ›

You Are Stronger Than Your Ego

egosays70040011.jpg

I believe that the ego is not only the bad guy who needs to be fought. I rather think that it is a very helpful part we created over time. On one hand, it can support the path of the soul with its strong will. On the other hand, the ego can help to find out who you are and who you are not. It is a creation of the mind – your mind and your creation. That means that you have the power and can create it in each moment. It is created by thoughts and can, therefore, be controlled by the choice of your thoughts. The further away we are drifting from the true self the more power the ego has. It can show up unexpectedly although we think we already know that guy and its tricks. But in a certain situation, it appears reflexively before we even notice that we are already in its claws again. It is then to step back and see where we would end up if following its direction and what if we chose the direction of the self.  Read more ›

The Blessing Of The Rabbit Hole

This post is inspired by a discussion I had going with Carisa of Sometimes Silver Linings Are Blue about the rabbit hole. Actually, it was more about the positive effects of that rabbit hole experience. Carisa thought it would make a topic for a post. I always love to discuss things with her. Carisa is a treasure box of experience and I honor and appreciate her a lot. Read more ›

Mind And Soul – Buddies For A Lifetime

Lately I read a post of Amanda’s. She wrote a letter to a close friend who is distancing from her while in serious struggles. Amanda reached a point where she needed to let her friend just go her way which is a big insight to accept. At times we simply have to let others find their way even when we see that they are hitting the wall again and again. What are words of use when they are not heard? And what are heard words of use when they are not felt? Read more ›

Feeling Powerful – The Art of Facing Life

When do we have the most power? When are we the most productive? When do we feel the most motivation to hang in, to start something new, to finally get projects done? It is always when we feel good.

No doubts, there are times in life when things are coming to an end, when plans don’t work out the way we hoped for, when all our effort seems not coming to fruition. Times when we are confused and when things around us fall apart or simply change in ways we have no control over….. times of change! Read more ›

A New Year Poem

I saw this picture lately and the words just started flowing.

New Beginning

1000 Stones covered with blood
Were used as words and thrown at him
Now they are lying in the shade
Because his ears stopped listening

A knife that was called ignorance
Did stab her heart 1000 times or more
Is lying in a corner now
‘Cause she decided to ignore

They both did turn away from what
Did hurt them for so long
They moved away and turned their faces
Towards the warming sun

When looking at the sun so bright
While walking on their street
They suddenly bumped in each other
Surprised to unexpectedly meet

Since both were glowing from the sun
They shared the same bright light
A look into each other’s eyes
And smiles from deep inside

They saw the scars within their hearts
Love flew and soothed their pain
Hand in hand then they walked on
And never looked back again

Sometimes we’re searching all life long
Searching in everyone
Because we feel deep in our heart
Where we actually belong

The time might come when we resign
And close that door behind
We finally turn around and see
What’s been always meant to be!

Control is an Illusion!

Life happens while we are making other plans.

I like this quote a lot. We are making plans for our nearer or further future, scheduling our days and then things happen which can change everything in an instant. The weather changes, someone gets sick, the job gets lost, accidents happen, or even more life impacting things.  We have no control about what happens around us. This is something we can be scared of or something that can even give us a relief because we can let go of the pressure to keep everything under control. Read more ›

Are You still Comfortable Or Already Living?

Yes, I borrowed that title from a commercial slogan of a famous furniture designer…. 😁

Last week I was guest on Kimberly Rinaldi’s live radio show Lessons in Joyful Living. It was a fantastic interview and I enjoyed it from the first until the last minute. It was my 3rd live radio interview. Was I still nervous? Yes, I was; throughout the day! But some time before the show started this nervousness changed into an excitement and anticipation.

Gratitude – The Power of Awareness

Imagine sitting on the top of a mountain and looking down into the valley. High up above, you see everything from a distance, the bigger picture.

From up there you understand how everything works together in order to make it all a complete and how necessary every little thing is. Read more ›

Shine!

Walked through the storm

Walked through the night

Through many valleys

In search of light

Then finally this light broke through

The path so clear to see

Looked for the source to hold on to

And realized it shone from me

The Power of Fate

The waves they come and go

My view touches the horizon

My thoughts fly far beyond

Memories of sacred moments

And visions of upcoming times

I let them go and let them pass

I let them come and grab their ………… insights (lol)

I see him smile

The Buddha inside

To strengthen my faith

To confirm my belief

To encourage my journey

What lies behind 

Is like a trail of feathers

Confirming  the direction I have chosen

In order to sit here 

And watch the waves come and go

With beautiful memories of sacred moments

And visions of upcoming times

20150930_184431

During a chat with a friend here on  WordPress I got reminded of one of my biggest inspirations regarding what I see as my purpose: The Saint Francis prayer

Only when reading it, something opens up within me. Like the dawning sun, there is this love rising up. This love that has only one purpose: to spread love towards everybody’s heart in order to make them rise their inner sun too.

6a0128760776fb970c017ee5b50fea970d-800wi

We are in a time of change. People run from dark places and try to find the light somewhere else. What we realize more and more during these days is that only when we start acting from our heart – first towards ourselves and then towards everybody around us – we can end pain, end war, and suffering. When we act from this place of love inside of us we feel the deep connection to everyone. Because love is the energy that created us, that we are, and that connects one another over the globe – regardless of any religious, cultural, racial, political backgrounds. We are all love and we want to feel loved. Isn’t it the most wonderful feeling to realize that someone feels deeply loved because you made that person feel loved? Because you showed that person that they are important, that they are precious, that they are beautiful, that they are perfect the way the are, just because they are as they are? Isn’t that the only technique to fill your heart with true and enduring love?

quote-Mother-Teresa-spread-love-everywhere-you-go-let-no-88434

I remember back in 1984. I was 14, sitting in my classroom (bored by the subject) and pondering about life. I was thinking about what would give my life meaning, fulfill me? And there was this thought coming up: “Make others feel good.” I don’t know where that came from. But it was there out of the blue. In the same moment, I got tears in my eyes because I felt a warmth in my chest expanding and rising up. A feeling that must have been of deep love. I remember it so clearly because it was a moment of awakening. From that moment on I tried to look deeper into my friends and other people. I wanted to understand them and through this spend encouragement and comfort.

Unfortunately, I lost that over the following years when I lost myself. But it always rose up between and for at least 6 years it is a companion wherever I walk.

It is my greatest joy to see others happy and it is my greatest fulfillment when I could make someone smile. Reading the Saint Francis Prayer again reminded me of this wonderful tool we have with us all the time. The tool that ceases sadness and suffering, that ceases anger and hatred, that ceases darkness and brings light. The tool of our origin, that divine spark within – LOVE

unzip-and-find-your-true-self-george-jeffries

When we let love speak, we truly lose anything that is not love. We are dying to the old identification with us and are born into the eternal awareness of love and to love itself. Love is life  – eternal life.

Our recently passed Wayne Dyer introduced me to the Saint Francis Prayer. He mentioned it in some of his books. When I joined my first lecture with him, he played a song of Cecilia. She is also called The Healing Voice. I bought one of her CDs and there was also the Saint Francis Prayer recorded. The song was exclusively written for her. It is very beautiful and I want to share this song with you too.

I won’t analyze too much about the prayer itself but ask you to simply open up to those lines and see what happens within you  when you let the words touch your heart.

Becoming-an-Instrument-of-Peace-1536x720

The Prayer of Saint Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy.

O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console,
To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
It is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life.

Liberation

(I am sorry, for some reason I cannot put paragraphs into the poem. Tried it for an hour and eventually gave up!)

So dark and so lonely

My heart was for years

Ruled by my self-doubts

Controlled by my fears

For far too long

I thought there must be

A change in the world

or a savior for me

But nothing did happen

No one understood

No one did care

If only I could…

Being who I am

Or who I wanna be

Not caring if others

Did understand me

All of a sudden

I thought: Why not I?

No one can judge me

Cause no one is I

I started to rise

Started living my dream

Not afraid anymore

That someone could be mean

I respect and I love me –

The person I am

Enabled me greatly

To love everyone

The smile that I’m wearing

Is no fake anymore

It shines from my heart

As the light of my core

Today I am content

No more fears, I am free

With me the world changed

And the savior has been me!

For Zee: This is the poem I was talking about 🙂

Dreaming on a Sunny Afternoon

A sunny summer afternoon
The wind is blowing through the trees
The scent of fresh-cut grass and flowers fills the air
From afar the church bells are ringing half past 3
I sit and look across the mountains
My thoughts are traveling beyond them where the ocean lies
And then I drift into memories of the past
Oh what a year of raise and fall
Of going down and standing tall
One of my best years ever, I think
So much I picked up, sowed and let grow
I turn my head and here it flies
A butterfly so white
Bringing me back into the present moment
I see the fruits I already could reap
The fruits of life’s unfolding which make me standing in awe
Causing gratitude for every bow I needed to take to sow a seed
For the garden of my life
My life, is a garden of white roses now
Again the butterfly continues its journey
I follow its lighthearted flight
Into a future where I will be able
To reap the fruits of the seeds I sow today
The seeds of the fruits I already hold in hands
Seeds of happiness
Seeds of thankfulness
Seeds of love
All is well, I think
All is simply well
On this sunny summer afternoon

In Love and Light
