#JustAThought… The Wisdom In You

The other day I had some interesting discussions with some blogger friends. It ultimately revolved around the fact that we actually know everything we need to know to get through this life journey. We have our answers for this life within us. And even if we don’t have them, we automatically move in a direction that leads us to the information we need. That, too, is controlled by inner wisdom.

Foreshadowing

Have you ever had this weird feeling of nervosity? I mean, you wake up in the morning and, for no apparent reason, you are nervous. Then it’s not long before something happens to confirm the inexplicable nervousness. Something like this has happened to me several times. Suddenly I have this strange feeling, and it won’t go away. I then wonder what is wrong with me until something occurs that exactly matches the feeling. It seems like the order has been reversed. As if the emotional reaction to a future event has been brought forward.

In Understanding The Ego, We Overcome It

I have often thought about this, I know many of us do it, whether the soul or the ego speaks to me in specific situations. Especially when we find ourselves in complicated and challenging life situations or facing important decisions, it can become even more difficult to distinguish between the voice of the ego and the voice of the soul. You want something badly and feel the urge to pursue it. But is it your ego pride that drives you, or is it the flame of your soul that you feel burning? Is it the wisdom of your soul that wants to save you from a painful detour, or is it the ego that does not want you to follow and fulfill your soul’s calling?

Life is for the Living

Today I am addressing a topic I recently discussed with a friend. Some people celebrate life, and some almost feel guilty for doing it. Feeling guilty about enjoying life can be for various reasons, such as having someone close taken from them, having caused unhappiness, pain, or loss to others (even if it wasn’t intentional), having failed, and feeling ashamed.

So Much Brighter Than It Appears …

AZQuotes.com

… those dirty drops only scream a lot louder than the clean ones…

We are already moving toward the end of January, but when I scheduled this post, it was December 30. On that day, I received a wonderful gift from our dear blogger friend Parneet: his book, Prisons – The Six Secrets of Life. Even when he offered to send me a signed copy, I was touched by his kind gesture. Then when I held the book in my hands, I was touched again. I know I don’t post here as often as I did a few years ago. I wish I had more time, but “the bills” have to be paid too. That’s why I appreciate such loving gestures all the more and hope I can give back some of what I receive here.

I am My Home

QuoteFancy.com

When I look out the window now, all I see is a white wall of fog. Outside it is cold and wet. That is the kind of autumn we are used to in November and winter in general. Sometimes the fog even stays for days or weeks. But so far, it hasn’t bothered me that the sun doesn’t shine, and I can only see as far as the nearest bush or tree. I even feel comfortable – at least when I sit here in my office and look outside as I write these words. It may be ugly outside, but it makes it even cozier and homier inside.

No Escape!

Who has not experienced it yet? Life confronts you with something you really don’t like to deal with. It may be something you successfully ignored, or someone else solved it for you. But for some reason, it seems to come back like a boomerang. Again, you don’t feel like dealing with it. May it be because it makes you anxious or forces you to look at a part inside yourself that you have been hiding and maybe even forgot about it. Maybe, you even thought you made it over it – until a situation happened in which you realized you did not. Not at all!

There is this point in life when turning away, wanting others to solve your issue, or distracting is not working anymore. It is that time when life says: “It’s enough. You postponed the task too often and for too long.” And you have no other chance than to look at it, take it, and end it by yourself. It is human that we try to avoid triggering anything that could bring us into situations that put us in the driver’s seat. Where there was always someone around to step in and make you get away, all of a sudden, no one is there any more to take the steering wheel. That can be even scarier. But since you never learned to make it on your own, life needs to take all possibilities to escape.

quotesgram.com

But no worries, the task may appear much bigger and more overwhelming than it really is. It only feels like it because you thought it would be that way. And every time you turned away, you added a bit of the negative thoughts that made it grow. However, once you take it to heart, and just go for it, you’ll quickly see that you actually have help on your side. But now, the help you receive is no longer an ease of your task but help for self-help. You learn to master the matter and find constructive ways alone and with support.

The tasks are not getting easier, but you are becoming stronger.

Erika Kind

How often have I thought that I could slip through again, only to see the wave coming back later again and even a bit higher. After a certain point running away was not possible anymore, and I had to face my fears and demons. Every time we do that, we not only untie a task of daily life but also a knot in our soul’s plan. Of course, we cannot be sure, if there are more knots on the same subject. But each time it gets a little easier. Because each time, we experience again that in the end, we do not emerge weaker but stronger, more self-confident, and more relaxed from a difficult situation.

You are the Phoenix.
You are your own salvation.
You are more than any challenge you may encounter.

On a side-note: This post was inspired by me reading about Empress Sisi’s life-long desperate attempts to escape the court ceremonial and herself. The older she got, the more she traveled the world – the tragedy of a broken and restless soul.

#JustAThought – Filter

QuoteFancy.com

On Instagram, I saw posts about #NoFilterDay. That got me thinking. Does this mean that a lot of people post pictures of themselves with filters, basically? I am not talking about the funny filters with dog tongues, cat ears, and distorted faces but filters that make them look “better” (whatever that means). I never paid attention to this until now because I don’t use such things myself. Is it because these people want to impress others by looking a certain way that they think will get them more followers, or don’t they simply like the way they look? When I think about our “selfie” society, where people focus on themselves and the importance of what they do and eat all day, this would make sense.

The Trinity In Us

medium.com

We all know that body, mind, and spirit are one. One influences the other, and one can heal the other. For me, change and healing still begin within. An illness or even accidents are often manifestations of something that comes from an imbalance in our inner world. But can it be the other way around? I mean, can an imbalance be in the body first without there being an imbalance in the mind? We have the body we need, with all its subjective advantages and disadvantages – subjective because everything our body provides is a tool to bring us back to our(-)selves. So it keeps us in line with our destiny either by finding other ways due to its limitations OR by overcoming limitations or diseases.

Fill Your Years With Life

QuotesGram.com

We hear it so often that we should enjoy life, not put anything off, let our soul unfold and follow the call of the heart. There are commitments, yes, but not all of them are real commitments. Many we do out of habit, even though times and circumstances have changed and the reason we took them on no longer even exists. We sometimes need to stop and examine how we are actually filling life. Is it only filled or is it also felt?

Being Shaped vs. Being Bent

QuoteFancy.com

This juxtaposition has been on my mind for a while. We all see the difference between both and for sure get the deeper meaning. We are all shaped by life, and by all the influences to which we are exposed in this life until our last breath. And nobody likes it to act against their conviction or personal virtues only to suffice their boss, society, a tradition, or simply some people who take advantage of another person’s helplessness, insecurity, fear, or dependency. Yes, we all know that, but sometimes the line between both is very thin…

Accepting and Resigning

QuoteFancy.com

I recently enjoyed a singing bowl treatment. If you’ve never had one, you wouldn’t believe what it can do to your body and soul. Before the treatment, we always talk about whether I have any specific requests regarding the outcome. I usually tell her to just do what she feels is necessary. I want to keep my head out of it and let happen what needs to happen. But last time, I wanted her to consistently follow up on any blocks she finds. I told her that I am so tired of a reflexive resistance arising in me when it comes to things that are ridiculous and that lock me up inside. This automatic resistance keeps me from expanding, and I’m so tired of working against it, which only causes more resistance. I said I wanted to be transparent and permeable. After the treatment (which was very effective), she said, resistance is not necessarily a bad thing but rather an intuitive reaction to not letting it all in. That got me thinking.

Me, Myself, and I

Eckhart-Tolle-Quotes-16-e1441309297189

Often I notice emotions that don’t feel like they are supposed to be with me. My mind keeps reflexively talking me into tings which I actually know, I don’t even need to listen. However, since the emotions appear reflexive, I can only act once they are already there and provoke me to question their origin again. For some reason, I thought of a post I shared three years ago and felt like posting it again today:

One Insight at a Time

BrainyQuote.com

Recently, I wrote a lot about how important it is for healing that we don’t turn away from painful feelings but face them. That, to not push them back again into a drawer but to take them out of that drawer and let them go. The reason they show up is that they are ready to leave, and the triggers in the outside world are only coming to support them surfacing.

The Brighter The Light – The Darker The Shadows

http://www.quotetab.com

We all have our dark spots, subtle emotions that show up in certain situations, inner resistance, old wounds that reopen, scars that keep us stuck in a past situation. As I said before, we absolutely cannot ignore them and sweep them under the rug. Just because I don’t see them doesn’t mean they aren’t still there. But we must be careful not to look only into the abyss of the soul. That is the same misunderstanding as ignoring them.

belenzotti.tumblr.com

There may be times, when the past catches up with us, and it seems that for a long time, we have only these dark shadows around us. We can’t see the light. But the explanation is actually quite simple. Imagine taking a photo of an object that is in front of the sun. It will appear completely dark because of the backlight. You are actually taking a picture of its shadow. If we focus only on the shadows, we miss the fact that there must be a lot of light behind them. The darker these shadows appear, the brighter the light behind them.

As soon as you realize that you ARE the light, the obstacles you are working through lose their dark color because you shine ON them. Then they are just obstacles to be overcome. With this attitude, you begin to see them as tasks on the journey, but not as obstacles that keep you from your journey. Again, you stop resisting and start accepting. You go from “Why me?” to “Let’s go!”.

QuoteFancy.com

Keep in mind that no matter how many dark potholes you may fall into, you will always be caught by the power of your soul. It knows the way, and its light will let you find the way to get back to the surface, just as you need it. Your life is not meant to be dark, and you are not meant to believe that. It is your strong soul that is determined to resolve as much of the past as possible. Only the strongest are confronted with the darkest shadows. There is so much love in them that keeps them going, that makes them stand up and gives them the courage and determination to go on. And those are the ones who encourage so many others to do the same. Beceause we can!

When you feel like looking into a dark hole
then remember that your light must shine the brightest.

Continue the journey and know
that your light will always attract light
to accompany you on the way.
I honor you for the wonderful soul you are.

In Love and Light

Sequels and Progress

spiritualcleansing.org

Lately, I am digging into working myself through karma. There is quite a lot in motion in my life that provokes me to look back in my incarnation history. It is so amazing how many links I can draw to relationships, my own attitudes or blockages, and the karmic laws. I know, this is something many are a bit scared of since they are afraid of what they could find when looking into one of the many previous lives. Yes, I was quite a bad guy but a blessing as well. As I wrote about two weeks ago, we are going through all kinds of roles in our different incarnations. We build up karma, and we solve it again. By going through hard times, suffering from repeated disappointments, humiliation, or resentments can be an indicator that we are about to resolve a not that nice part from a past life.

Stardust And Spirit – Oneness In All That Is

ownquotes.com

“Humans are made up of more than 90 percent stardust. Most of the body’s atoms and molecules were once formed in stars.”

A few weeks ago, I heard this in a movie, and it intrigued me. As a result, I came across some interesting articles on the Internet, for example, one from the Stuttgarter Nachrichten. Here is a short excerpt:

The specific chemical composition turns stardust into a diamond, stone or a plant, a bacterium, insect or a “Homo sapiens”. The cells in our bodies, the oxygen we breathe, the carbon and nitrogen in our tissues, the calcium in our bones – all come from stardust produced many billions of years ago and continuing to be generated.

Dreams – The Mirror of Your Purpose

easyblogemily.com

Oh, well, such big dreams but so many inner steps to take to realize them. Isn’t it crazy that what we want the most often also scares us the most? A dream I have is something that I don’t have in my life yet. What I have not had in my life yet, I have no experience with. It is not the dream itself that scares but the changes that may go along with, the possible sacrifices, the risks to fail and to deal with the consequences. The big unknown we cannot estimate. Again: to take responsibility for our actions with all of their consequences!

A Smile Is A Reminder

http://www.askideas.com

Lately, I had an interesting discussion with my business partner. He told me that on the way to work, he heard about a study on the radio. When you smile at someone, something begins to change in the brain cells of the other person. They are more responsive which has an effect on that person again who smiled in the first place. Also, there something changes in the brain cells which, in the end, makes both experience feelings of happiness. A smile does indeed connect, but it seems that is is a result of a switch the brain makes. And we know what an influence the brain has on our feelings.

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 criticized for 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 to show a part of us which we kept hidden for so 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 hearts and passion. And then it happens…. the door opens up!

I still believe that the core purpose of the journey through this lifetime lies in rediscovering our own light, in the way we deal with what happens leads us closer to recognizing who we really are. Joy, pain, drama, success, love, loss, stress, relief shows the results by the consequences of our actions and reactions. Every little incident tells us something about ourselves and the more we experience the more we might see that it is up to us how we experience what happens. Nothing new! BUT…

The Surfacing Soul

These days many of us are called upon to stay at home as a matter of principle. Some stay together in groups (like family) while some are alone. Both situations can become a challenge over time or even overwhelming when they can no longer “escape”; either from the people they live with or worse – from themselves. The second one is what I want to talk about and what is a general problem. In our routine days it may be easier to get distracted from the fact that they are not able to deal with themselves. But these days there truly is no escape. Instead of throwing themselves into work or party life, they are now forced to deal with themselves. It can be very hard… but also wonderfully healing. To me it feels like a high-speed rehabilitation – wanted or not.

Just A Thought – What Means Freedom?

First thoughts may be doing what I want, no obligations, no duties, only taking care of myself and my needs. Perhaps this comes to mind first because barely someone can do this. But let’s pretend to go for this. It would lead to isolation pretty soon because it would mean to lock everyone out. In thinking we’d free ourselves we’d send ourselves in a home-made prison.

We Don’t Miss What We Never Knew

Before we had smartphones we have not missed them. But today, the phone breaking down can cause big issues in our daily lives. I wrote my first email in 2006. Many asked me how I could live without the internet. I said, how can I miss something which has never been part of my life? But once I had started emailing and using the internet, it comes close to a catastrophe when my laptop dies or the internet gets interrupted. When my sister went for her style coach degree, she interviewed people. One question was about the color yellow and what if it would not be part of our lives. One answer was: We wouldn’t care, because we wouldn’t even know it.

The person in need seems to be weak and poor or someone who has not enough knowledge to help themselves. But is it really that way? Read more ›

The Good You Ignite In Others, Is The Good In Yourself

Wayne Dyer.PNG

Last week I wrote about how some people cannot enjoy the best things which happen to them because they don’t believe it can be true and how it can affect their health. They are convinced that bad things are the only reality. I’d like to continue here with something that goes along with such an attitude. Read more ›

The Main Ingredient To Succeed

ralphwaldoemerson1-2x.jpg

When we look at successful people, there is one thing they have in common: Enthusiasm. People who put themselves into their projects, who invest hours and hours, day and night, who don’t get tired to find ways and solutions, and who are not afraid to walk any necessary path in order to make their project a success, are highly enthusiastic about their vision.

Unlimited and Unstoppable!

67272-Kurt-Vonnegut-Quote-We-have-to-continually-be-jumping-off-cliffs.jpg

We are developing in every single moment we exist. Whether we are awake or asleep or even in which form we do exist. Development happens naturally through all we see, all we hear, all we smell, all we experience, a smile we receive makes something happen, a bad word makes something happen. We cannot help it nor can we stop it. We save all those impressions within instants and it feeds our inner system. We collect everything in our files. Where we store it and how we rate an experience is subjective and defines the direction we develop to. But one thing is for sure, we do save everything. Even when we consciously decide not to let something affect our inner world, we save it! Read more ›

Follow Your Heart!

1907-Steve-Jobs-Quote-Have-the-courage-to-follow-your-heart-and.jpg

For months, I let me become completely absorbed by my circumstances, my jobs, and what I needed and wanted to get done in the rare time which was left. I learned my lesson. So, I have been making more room for my-Self again. I started working creatively with my hands as I used to. Right now, I am working on my own 100% natural skincare line. As you noticed, I am posting more about essential oils and body care again which will be a part of it.  I am experimenting with soaps, body lotion bars, bath bombs, hand lotion bars, researching the net, attending courses. I developed my own label and next on my list is a completely revised website which will be a huge project itself. So, it is still a long way to get there but that doesn’t matter. What do I want to say with this all? Read more ›

“YOU’VE GOT ME ALL WRONG” 3 – THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS DEATH

Unbenannt

A few weeks ago I picked up one of Walsch’s books and began to read the first pages. After I read the short list of the 25 core messages to explain the main message (in the title) I stopped reading. It was so inspiring and I my mind started spinning. Before I am reading on I want to share the flow of pictures and thoughts of some of those core messages which immediately filled me. If you would like to read the first two parts, you can check out here part 1 and part 2. Read more ›

“You’ve Got Me All Wrong” – There is no such thing as right or wrong

Unbenannt

Last week I shared first thoughts about God’s message to the world, forwarded through Neale Donald Walsch’s books. I was so inspired by the 25 key messages as an explanation of the core message in the title that I stopped reading and started writing. I want to share the flow of pictures and thoughts which immediately filled me. I won’t go through all the 25 key points Walsch listed because some of them are constantly part of our discussions here. This proves that we all already hold THE truth in our hearts. In order to complete the big picture, we only need to listen to God and trust that what we feel as a message IS His message.  Read more ›

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 ›

I AM … Happiness

Dreams and Obligations

Bildergebnis für success Steve Jobs

We all have both of them. And much too often they seem to stand in opposition to each other.  Because what we do and what we would love to do sometimes appears like sitting in completely different corners. But why actually? Why should it be not possible to realize our dreams and fulfill our obligations or even make them our obligations at the same time? Read more ›

Me, Myself, and I

Eckhart-Tolle-Quotes-16-e1441309297189

Often we step back and think about ourselves “I should not take this so serious”, “I need to stand up for myself” or “I would like to but…”, and much more. Lately, I started pondering about it. Who is that one talking to me? I am I but still, I am talking to someone. Isn’t it interesting that we can observe ourselves although we are ourselves? Is there something inside of me watching that “I” who goes through its everyday life? Read more ›

Insights – Messages Of The Soul

Lately, I was talking a lot with my friends in posts, comments, and replies about the effect of insights and how they come up. What is an insight actually? It is something we understand (often instantly) and which changes the way we looked at something in particular or in general. It makes us see a detail which we might have overlooked before but which was essential to dissolve a misunderstanding or a misinterpretation.  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 ›

Just A Thought…

lighthouse-2307273_1280.jpg

Who you are is light.
That light lingers in your deepest, truest core.
The amazing thing about light is,
it illuminates everything in its surrounding.

So, when you shine your light
you fill yourself and then gift everyone around you.

Be a beacon for your own sake and the sake of everyone.

Happy Weekend!

Healing Yourself Starts With Aligning With Your Self

1742723-Ziggy-Marley-Quote-If-you-keep-hiding-your-true-self-your-life.jpg

When the energy can flow freely through the body it provides every single fiber in our body from head to toe with all it needs to be strong, happy, and healthy. Then you are in balance, healthy, and in peace. Then you don’t worry but simply take every step that is necessary to take through this journey. Then your physical being is aligned with your spiritual being. But seriously, who of us is in that state constantly? Read more ›

Don’t worry, this is not going to be a post in which I ask everyone to have their heads up in the clouds and blindly love everything and everyone whether you feel like it or not. Perhaps it would prevent a lot of conflicts but I am not that type of person who offers the right cheek when I was just slapped on the left one.  Read more ›

Looking Beneath Free Will

Before I start with the actual topic I want to make sure that whatever I write here or in any of my posts is not what I think is the one and only truth. But it is what I believe. Some things I can explain, some things I can’t because they arise as an inner knowing – as a feeling of a deep truth. But I also know that many of you connect with that same inner feeling or at least a similar one.  Read more ›

Be Authentic – Be You – Be Love!

Lately, I came across this topic several times and thought it would make sense to repost an article I wrote almost 2 years ago:

Life isn’t about being someone we think we should be only because it sounds good because others want us to be, or in order to fit into a certain image of society. A faked personality only confuses the people around you and yourself over time more and more because the real identity gets lost.

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 ›

My Life – Your Life – Our Lives

vault-847460_960_720.jpg

From the moment we take our first breath, we are in constant development. A development that is attuned to the place we are heading to. I don’t think that anyone of us knows the highest grade of development they are meant to reach in this lifetime. Or that anyone understands what part a certain achievement plays in the greater context. We are heading from one insight to the next. Once we overcame something we often think that “we got it”! Until we arrive at the next hurdle and are frustrated because we think that we are at the same point again. NOT TRUE!

viktor_1.jpg

Even though we might face a similar situation again doesn’t mean that we did not get the lesson before. Perhaps we simply did not get the whole thing and need another kick. But each “kick” moves us towards the insight. Each insight absorbed from our consciousness is a step on the staircase of our development. We did achieve something wonderful and we made it closer to the end of the staircase…. but it is not the end yet. So, facing another step to make is not a setback but prepares for the next possibility to get closer to the end goal. What is important to know is that those steps are not meant to punish. Not at all! They are tools that force us to keep moving.

107214628-Gods-plan-is-like-a-movie.jpg

Before we arrived here we looked at the big plan. We set certain happenings and experiences. Sometimes it was set for a particular time sometimes it was something we planned to experience some day. All in between is meant to prepare us for those happenings and experiences. And all together shall lead to the big insight or purpose we planned to fulfill. We made that plan together with many of the people we are meeting down here. Those who impact our lives in a special way (no matter which way) are those who were sitting with us at the same table while planning their and our incarnations. Whatever happens in our lives is a perfectly planned sequence in which many destinies are connected. Whatever happens, impacts each life in a different way and all are taking something from it which pushes them further in the way they need it. If I had not written my book I would not be on WordPress writing this post and you would not be reading it… We all know how much only blogging influenced our lives and what all developed from that!
