The Opposite of Love Is Fear

QuoteFance.com

My post Who Is The Thinker caused some interesting discussions. Hugh of Hugh’s Views & News asked why fear can be the opposite of love. He said he thought it was hate. Before I thought of that theory I felt the same about it. I think hate is the first thing that comes to our minds when we think of the opposite of love. But is hate really the end- or only a by-product when it comes to the opposite of love?

Who Is The Thinker?

Quote-Fancy.com

My Monday post “What means freedom” from three weeks ago triggered some very inspiring discussions. Still, freedom is a state of not feeling the need to escape a situation or a place. But how can we get there when the circumstances are so suffocating or when we are so afraid of what’s happening?

Just A Thought… Overcoming Fear – Path or Goal?

Carol Anne asked an interesting question about a week ago: If you could be totally amazing at just one thing, what one thing would you want to be amazing at? My first thought was I want to encounter obstacles, challenges, and life’s tests without pushing me through fear first. Then it made me think.

It’s Only The Initial Situation – Not The Result!

nidoqubein1-2x.jpg

When you receive a shocking diagnosis you are waiting for information about how serious everything is, about the level of the disease, about the probable treatment, and most of all about the chances of surviving and healing. Mostly there are two possible reactions: Either I fall in desperation and get worked up in fear regarding “what could happen” or I look at the chances and options to support “what could happen”. What I want to happen or what I expect to happen is an inner concept and how this inner concept looks like reveals in exceptional circumstances.

What Really Matters…

1737083-H-G-Wells-Quote-What-really-matters-is-what-you-do-with-what-you.jpg

Basically, when asked, everybody knows for themselves what really matters in their lives (most of all those who were already reminded through life). Taking a serious look at our lives we distance pretty soon from luxury problems which cause us to complain reflexively. Who cares about a closed gate or standing at a red light, a rainy day or a missed bus when you consciously think about the meaning. Those things are temporary “problems” which mostly don’t have a deeper impact on the future. Read more ›

Doubts and Fear – Looking For What You Don’t Want

1707389-Charlie-Chaplin-Quote-You-ll-never-find-a-rainbow-if-you-re.jpg

It doesn’t matter how nice, beautiful, lovely something may appear, there are people who are having problems accepting thankfully and instead reflexively question all good things. They are more convinced that good things cannot be real but accept the not so good things as the only realistic option. Whatever good they see, they will not be fine until they find something to criticize. Yes, all that glitters is not gold. But why searching for the non-gold when I am doing good with what glitters?

The Challenging Point of No Return

point-of-no-return-quotes-3.jpg

Due to the current situation regarding my job, I want to reblog a post from a couple years ago. Sometimes you are chances offered and since you won’t let them pass you take them. You are supported and learn a lot but after a while, it can happen that it doesn’t turn out what you expected it to be. You don’t feel comfortable and actually, it becomes a pain in the neck more and more. Maybe you even get sick from the expectations you cannot fulfill since everything inside you starts rebelling against what you are supposed to do. Instead of getting better over time, it gets worse and worse. You know that a change is inevitable. The tricky point then is to disappoint those who gave you the chances and supported you. Can you let them behind only that you feel better? Can you be so selfish since you know how they rely on you? Sometimes we have to be selfish to move on. Isn’t it actually selfish, too to stay where you are only because you can avoid a conflict with others or with yourself? Perhaps we are taught to make everybody happy but we can’t because there is always this one person being left unhappy: You!

475543098.jpg

When we are going through life we can find ourselves in situations and circumstances which require our actions. It just happens due to the way we live and also in order to learn and develop from what we experience. Sometimes certain situations not only hold new elements but are simply new and scary all over. We are asked to decide whether staying in the old which we don’t want anymore for a long time already or taking that step into the new completely unknown which feels liberating and deeply scary at the same time. We are aware that we are standing in front of the point of no return.

quote-beyond-a-certain-point-there-is-no-return-this-point-has-to-be-reached-franz-kafka-242325.jpg

It can likely happen that we give in again since feeling guilty and perhaps selfish and taking the responsibility for breaking down everything and affecting the lives of others with it can be overwhelming. It is the moment when we need to step aside and reflect. As long as we are in the midst of the emotional stream we will break down physically and mentally at one point. Maybe we really resign because we cannot take it anymore. But that is exactly that point we need to look closer: Do I want to look back and say “I already made it so far but I did not take that last step only because I was too afraid”?

2178007a17ba15a23c395a1e031a5ac5.jpg

We need to get into an observing and more objective position. We need to remember what brought us so close to that moment of changing our lives. Was it a mood? No, it was an inner conviction. We headed towards that point of no return because of a reason and we need to recall everything. If this recalling fills you again with determination and the knowing that the difficult way again/still feels as the right one then go! Life is more than what was! If we let us direct by our fears or insecurities we will always look at our dreams like at clouds which are blown away by the wind. If we want to live the life we feel as ours inside of us then we need to step up for it. Then we need to take the journey through the thorn bush and risk some scratches. The scratches will heal again but not going through will keep us from ever experiencing the side we already see in our hearts as the life we are supposed to experience.

quote-all-changes-even-the-most-longed-for-have-their-melancholy-for-what-we-leave-behind-anatole-france-10-10-25.jpg

When a change needs to be made it is normal and actually a good sign that we feel emotional because it shows that what was has a place in our hearts and will always have. Life is change. Life is risking something. If we never risk a change how shall we ever know how it feels to really live? What makes us grow is not the security of our comfort zone but the inspiring fresh air of the world that is waiting behind. Our comfort zone is a small limited space within a universe of possibilities. Yes, it needs a bit courage to step over the limit line but you feel it in your heart when it is time to do it. Reflect, remember why you got at this point and motivate yourself for not backing out again! You don’t need to explain it to anyone. It is enough when you feel it deep inside that it is time to leave for more!

quotes-about-moving-forward.jpg

Remember that all you do will lead you towards the destinations you are meant to arrive. The reason you are standing at a turning point is that you have either grown too big or that you learned what you needed and now can continue on the main street again. So, don’t be afraid and take action. Yes, we might disappoint others but as long as we don’t act in deliberately hurting others it is simply life. We are disappointed too and have to learn how to deal with it. Taking responsibility, making that step consciously, and following that path determined will empower you even more because you know that YOU did it. You stepped up for yourself and dared to take action!

In Defeating Fear I Am Releasing Me

81619-Michael-Jordan-Quote-Any-fear-is-an-illusion-You-think-something.jpgI dare to say that fear is the origin of most or even all of our problems and troubles. Fear is a blocking filter built by the mind and it keeps us from connecting with the source of power inside of us. Peace, understanding, development, happiness – to sum it up – love, comes from within. Only if we open up the pipeline to that source, which is the origin of our being, we are able to live the life we are supposed to. We need to identify fear as a lie. Fear is a thought, an imagination and nothing else. It never tells the truth and is a big cheater.  Read more ›

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 ›

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 ›

Breakthrough: When Development Causes Pressure

99532-Joyce-Meyer-Quote-Sometimes-when-you-are-the-closest-to-your.jpg

Sometimes it is not difficult to simply present the core message of a post but it can be a challenge to start a post in order to get there. Very often I start in a similar way I did before but then go a different direction – sometimes deliberately and sometimes it just happens. Isn’t it interesting that we start from the same point but end up somewhere else?

quote-constant-development-is-the-law-of-life-and-a-man-who-always-tries-to-maintain-his-dogmas-mahatma-gandhi-10-59-97.jpg

We can observe this every day on ourselves. Although our bodies may do the same things daily or goe from home to work and from work back home daily the being inside that body makes experiences which lead to a different place of feelings or of awareness every single day. Things accumulate, new challenges appear, situations dissolve and give you a feeling of liberation, new people enter your life, others leave it. So much happens during each day. You get a further perspective. You may act slightly different which changes your inner direction. And that although it is always you. We are constantly changing and developing and therefore (mostly unnoticed) we already start from a different level than the day before.

245e761ca71f5cdb8008fcafe39e13a3.jpg

When this goes unnoticed then changes which appear building up more and more around us are even more challenging and more difficult to understand. But they are only a symptom of who we have already become and now we need to make a step out of the old platform up to the new one where we already belong to.

32b8ba370674281dc9012c0012f0c65b--energy-quotes-free-front.jpg

Did I think I would ever go back into a job where I am bound to certain work hours? Never!! But things in my life happened, I developed from them, and here I am. After almost 1 1/2 years I am still working at the same company but meanwhile, my work changed and expanded. Now, I am working more or less full time (in addition to my therapy practice and all that comes with being a mom and with caring for a house and garden) in a field I never worked before and which is still a task to catch up with so much knowledge and taking more and more responsibility. A year before I had never imagined being at that point. I actually did not want a job with so much responsibility again. But I gained experience and self-esteem which let me to that point again. Still the same person but not inside, still the same workplace but not the work. I am still experiencing times when I think this all is too much for me. But when I lift myself above the situation I can clearly see that I am only resisting to go with the flow because of doubting myself. Once I step over this all works smoothly again and most of all my inner river flows calmly again.

2125485dcc89d4876e3800dffec8e454.jpg

Sometimes development is a smooth transition and then again it happens in little or bigger steps – breakthroughs. Very often a breakthrough happens due to a time of accumulating pressure. We cannot keep us from developing and if we are meant for a certain destination we will definitely arrive there. Sometimes we are resisting the development because we are too scared of a change or we have too many self-doubts. But the increasing pressure is actually the proof that we are meant for that change. The longer we wait, the more we try to resist, the more use all our power to lean against that door that is about to open, the bigger the pressure of what cannot be kept from becoming. And once the pressure gets too big to handle we break… perhaps first down and then through!

18d95190af316aff17ddbf631de310f8--keep-going-royals.jpg

We are who we are. The core of our beings is eternal life energy. That core is the reason our physical bodies are alive. And although who we really are never changes the reason we come here does change in order to support the evolution of our soul. Even though the very beginning is a start from the same basic conditions, the journey and the destination are never the same ones. Our soul has a plan for this life and it wants that plan to be realized or it would have missed the purpose of its incarnation. So when you experience a period of increasing pressure then you might have resisted (consciously or unconsciously) going with a natural development. It might be a sign of an upcoming breakthrough. Don’t fear it, but rather look a little closer and you might get there sooner. But I know…. sometimes the pressure needs to become hard enough to take the steps we already know have to be taken!

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 ›

The Challenging Point of No Return

point-of-no-return-quotes-3.jpg

It is really funny! Sunday is usually the day when I prepare my Monday post (not the one for the next day but for the following week later 😁). So on that Sunday when I was pondering what I could write about nothing was already on my mind. Hmm… so I was sitting there staring at my laptop, fingers on the keyboard and ready to type but…

giphy.gif

empty spaces. That is the moment when I start plan be which is: stop thinking! I stop pondering but look up and say: “Please, tell me what I shall write about!” That way the channel is open.  Then I am doing ordinary things but look out for signs of inspiration. Prior that morning, I made a backup of my laptop. I saw my external memory still lying there and… here we go!

475543098.jpg

When we are going through life we can find ourselves in situations and circumstances which require our actions. It just happens due to the way we live and also in order to learn and develop from what we experience. Sometimes certain situations not only hold new elements but are simply new and scary all over. We are asked to decide whether staying in the old which we don’t want anymore for a long time already or taking that step into the new completely unknown which feels liberating and deeply scary at the same time. We are aware that we are standing in front of the point of no return.

It is the moment when we need to step aside and reflect. As long as we are in the midst of the emotional stream we will break down physically and mentally at one point.

Life is risking something. If we never risk a change how shall we ever know how it feels to really live? What makes us grow is not the security of our comfort zone but the inspiring fresh air of the world that is waiting behind.

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.

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!

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.

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.

In Love and Light

There is more than you might see!

Most of you know that I had the exciting opportunity to be at the Blogger Bash 2016 in London last weekend. But due to the fact that I lost a whole weekend and had some stressful days before I wasn’t able to write a new Monday Post. I decided to pick a fitting one from March 2015 and modified it a bit.
We are more than what we experience and in order to recognize and to feel that, we need to pause. Please don’t miss to watch the inspiring slideshow at the end of this post. I watch it from time to time and it always has this amazing calming and centering effect. 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.

Worry is an imagination

In Love and Light

For Our French Friends…

A night of horror and terror lies behind our French fellow-men. About 150 civilians and 6 terrorists dead. The French people are called to stay in their homes and all attractions are closed. The fear, the grief, the shock is deep. The compassion not only of the neighbor countries and Europe but of the whole world is with all of you. Our sympathy and thoughts are with you.

We are all one! What harms one of us, hurts all of us!

For our French friends here on WordPress and for all the French people but also for everybody who faces difficult times right now.  Much love to all of you! Read more ›

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. 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 ›

Fear controls people

In Love and Light

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 🙂

I have to make a decision – and that scares me…

Song of the Day – The big Show 😉

That sounds more dramatic than it is. But yesterday out of the blue this song was playing in my head all the time. I did not hear it anywhere. It just popped up!

I link this song with a very important time in my life. When I heard it the first time my life already started turning around 180°. I was at the point where I finally realized that my happiness is not depending on the good-will of the bothering people around me but only in my hands. That time was confusing through all the changes which happened around me, with my own new perspectives through which I behaved differently. I was irritated by the new feelings I found within, by my own rising power but also the scary new challenges I had to face. It was the time when I knew my life cannot go on the way it did but I had no idea how it should go on, since I also found myself in a big marriage crises. It was the most challenging 6 months in my life…. and the best, happiest, most insightful ever! It was a time of rebirth! Read more ›

Suffering Part 1 – The Torture In Our Heads

When we are suffering we feel bad. Depending on the reason we feel sadness, pain, fearful, torn apart, helpless, lost, ignored, dependent, punished, frustrated, depressed, physically ill,… the list could go on and on and on…

There are so many reasons why we suffer from something that happened in our lives. The biggest problem is that we are tending to search for answers and for explanations. At least I am a master in the need of understanding. If someone acts different towards us and we don’t get an answer then the dangerous circle of thoughts start twisting in our minds. We stop perceiving but start assuming – a killing virus. We start interpreting every little piece we find in order to put it together to a picture. We feel such a need to understand in order to find peace. That’s the breeding ground for misunderstandings, further interpretations and ongoing misunderstandings. The picture we desperately try to complete is getting more and more distorted until we are completely confused and devastated. We don’t get the answers we hope for but lots of irritations. When we finally step back, let go of the need to analyze everything we all of a sudden see the misunderstanding. We only interpreted out of our own experiences and our own way of thinking. Why do we expect others might think as we do? As long as we only look out of our own eyes how shall we ever understand another person, a situation, or a greater context? How shall we ever get steadfast when we don’t trust because we try to have everything under control? Whatever is meant to happen will happen. It will happen in the perfect way. But with our impatience we can stretch the duration, make our life hell, think ourselves to pieces only to find out that nothing of everything was ever true.

uncover-your-sites-overlooked-profit-opportunities

In order to unmask the big misunderstanding and fight within us we need to understand how our mind handles happenings. Our mind has only the experience of its physical lifetime. There is no higher awareness coming from the mind. That’s why we need to bring it in alignment with our soul’s voice. I joined a workshop with the incredible Neale Donald Walsch two years back. This is what I drew from it:

The mind:

  • An event happens and our mind calls up stored data from similar events in the past in less than the twinkle of an eye. These data might be factual data or even only judged (imagined) data.
  • We create our truth out of those data. This truth can be a fictional (distorted), appearing (observed), or actual (ultimate) truth.
  • This personal truth generates thoughts. Depending on our individual truth they can be constructive or destructive.
  • Our thoughts create our emotions.
  • The emotions we feel create the perception and are responsible HOW we experience what happens.
  • The experience and how we think, speak, and act out of it creates our reality.

Now let’s switch to our soul:

  • There are no events for the soul it perceives it as a judgmental free being.
  • From simply being arises a new perspective of awareness and consciousness.
  • This leads to perception.
  • As simple perception again leads to a profound belief.
  • A belief generates a certain behavior out of the perspective and perception of the soul.
  • The experience is turning out as soulful.
  • At the end stands a reality which arises out of the conscious connection with the soul.

Which path feels better, lighter, effortless, simply flowing? But we came here to make a human experience and we need the mind in order to complete this experience here on earth. The secret lies in aligning mind and soul. Therefore we need to first listen to our soul, trust in its inexhaustible wisdom and have faith. When we know what the soul wants we are in peace and act solely out of the loving being that wanted to walk on earth for some years. Now we can tell our mind what the soul decided and let it support the soul with its physical skills to make this physical lifetime a soulful, compassionate, joyful, and fulfilling experience.

When you find yourself twisting and turning, finding explanations and lacerate yourself with imagined truths (interpretations) then pause. Try to find the time to sit back, get still, and listen to the voice of the soul. Exchange a happening for the simple being and feel the relief. We have the tool to find peace within us. We have the tool to get rid of our thoughts’ chains. Our soul is not only always with us. We are this soul. Don’t ever let your mind tell you anything different.

In Love and Light!

The scary Tidbit – Ghost Story!

I swear that everything I write below is true! I still recall everything as if it just had happened.

I was 9 years old when it happened. My parents were out that night and our great-grandmother took care of us. It was in the middle of the night when I heard something. I remember that I thought it was part of my dream. But the longer I heard it the more I woke up. All of a sudden I realized that there was a knocking coming  from my window. I was completely awake then and I terrified since it did not stop. I pulled my blanket over my head and hid underneath it. I hoped it will stop immediately and I would realize that it was just in my imagination. But the next round of knocking showed me that it was real. I prayed, I cried, I promised to be the best girl ever when it only stopped. But it didn’t. Read more ›

Follow your dreams

Last week I had an amazing live interview with Kimberly Rinaldy at Lessons in Joyful Living. We were talking about my book, my motivation to start it, my challenges, how I reached my breakthrough, and much more. Since there is so much more to say, Kimberly even invited me for another interview. I will keep you posted for the date.

We touched one topic that is most important to me. Because it is one with which many of us are fighting during their life times. I too did, because I thought I wasn’t meant for a purposeful life. I simply misunderstood that I am always fulfilling my purpose. But only when I rediscovered my value I started going for my dreams consciously. It was the time when I promised myself: “I will never ever look back and say that I had the chance, but didn’t take it because I was scared. And now it is too late.” Never! Read more ›

There is more than you might see!

There are times, we feel left alone by all the world and his brother. We feel harried, disappointed and under a massive pressure from all sides. Some people seem to have it in for giving us a hard time. There are problems in the job or it is a time of big stress. Perhaps your private life has reached a point and you question yourself where your relationship shall lead to. Maybe your worry about someone you love or someone said goodbye. Sometimes you come to a point when you ask yourself: Was that it? Was that my life? Is there nothing waiting for me anymore? Read more ›

Last week was truly a very emotional and confusing one for me. Life is wonderful. It always throws new circumstances and happenings in our life in order to not let us stand still and keep us in constant development. The weekend was very clearing and at the end of Sunday even the last issue was solved. My head is clear, my mind is calm, and my heart is wide. I welcome this week with joy and curiosity.

When I sat into my car this morning this was the first song I heard  and it has been the perfect confirmation. Read more ›

The Journey of a Miracle!

I so often think back how things have come together in order to unfold the way I find them in my life today. It is an exciting journey of exploring. It helps to understand the universal laws, gives lots of profound insights and therefore strengthens my faith.

My most impressive string of unfolding in order to come to new unfolding is the story how I came to write my book I’m Free and so much that followed. It is a huge story. When you read my book then you find lots of examples in it from my own life how to break free. I am currently writing on a new book which is about miracles. The story I want to tell you today is mentioned in that book and it is still a miracle to me. But at the same time it is only a part of a far bigger miracle that still seems to unfold. Read more ›

Patience!

I have to confess that when patience was distributed I definitely must have missed the event. When I have an idea I want to start it right away and I stick with it until it is done to my satisfaction. This impatience is part of my success, of my journey, and of the way I walk through my life. It is actually part of my zest for life. I live life to the fullest and I walk through it with an open heart. I am like a sponge soaking up all the inspirations I can get in order to expand myself. But life taught me also that in certain situations I am able to completely surrender to patience. That’s when something is of particular importance to me.

What means patience? To me it means waiting in faith for something we are not in control of.  That can be waiting for time to pass, for an impacting decision of others, or for a certain happening we long for. It may feel like a dependency since it is out of our hands. But it doesn’t make sense to become impatient, since it would only make the waiting time worse and would nurture destructive feeling.

patience-learn-you-must

Patience doesn’t need to have the touch of dependency.  Patience is a peaceful condition. It contains confidence, trust, and faith. We are consciously patient when we feel that it is for the benefit of people we value. Patience is a sign of love when we step back in order to grant others room for their decisions. Patience means taking a first step without knowing the whole path. Patience means enjoying the moment and not driving ourselves crazy with something lying in the future we cannot classify yet. Patience means being faithful to let things unfold in their own velocity.  Patience means taking one step at a time without having the brain told what is supposed to show up after step three. Patience provides valuable time for preparing and for developing attitudes towards the desired outcome. When we are patiently moving on conditions will unfold in a way we could never create by ourselves with our controlling mind.

When we have decided to be patient then we have proved something very important to ourselves: We accept the possibility that things might not turn out as we hope they will. Because the matter we are patient for is worth the waiting and the uncertainty.

When there is a need for you to be patient the next time then keep in mind that patience is an act of respect towards others and an act of self-love. It says that you listen to your inner voice and that you trust the feeling which makes you go for it.

How long would you be willing to wait for something you feel it is worth for? How long would you be willing to wait for something that feels like meant to be? As long as it needs, right?

Patience is the sign of a deep belief in something that simply feels right for you.

In Love and Light!

The Miracle of Liberation!

How do you define miracle? I’d say that usually we mean an unexpected happening of luck, right? But my personal definition is: Miracles are happenings, encounters, twists or coincidences which we cause by the way we think, act and by how we apply our experiences into our lives.

Yesterday I experienced such a miracle. The miracle of breaking free.  Those are my favorite miracles. An experience I already had  many times in my life. I was completely under the weather. I was thrown off the track!  Yes, even Mrs. Positive has breakdowns at times. But they are OK. They always come when I am about to shake off an old chain. Read more ›

I’m Free – German and English edition

My dear friends!

I know that some of you already read (or are about to read) my book I’m Free – Awareness of Who You Are by Discovering Who You Are Not! I also got some very lovely feedbacks. Thanks to all of you. Now I would ask you a favour. I would love you to write me a little review on any online platform you prefer and/or rate the book. I would appreciate it a lot. It would be of great support for the book and very helpful for other readers to make the decision to buy it.

For those who read the German edition, you could leave a comment on Amazon.

ImFree_Cover Vorderseite

For those of you who read the English version you could for example go to Amazon as well.

But also on Goodreads your words are very welcome!

And of course, if you did not notice I’m Free by today, you should definitely take a look. One of my readers recently said, it had become his bible. If you like it, then perhaps you know people who need a little lift, or people who destroy themselves but are not able to step out of their self-destructive circle. They also don’t want to talk about it or close themselves to the good advises of others. Often it is easier for them to take a look into a book with the topic of their problem. Then they don’t feel forced or feel they had to make a commitment.

Christmas is coming. So perhaps that’s an idea as well!

Have a wonderful day!

I’m Free – Awareness of Who You Are by Discovering Who You Are Not!

Are you yearning for the fulfillment of your dreams and wishes? Do you feel limited by circumstances and people? “I’m Free” shows what keeps us from living our full potential and how to free ourselves to be who we really are and always wanted to be. Whatever happens in life doesn’t mean we can’t be happy! We are not the victims of our circumstances but the masters who only need to figure out how to use happenings and conditions for our development and benefit.
