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…

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.

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.

Keep Going – Really Always?

408392-Kristin-Armstrong-Quote-Take-care-of-yourself-Eat-well-rest-train.jpg

The past weeks have become more and more challenging. Highly inspired I started a new but big and time-consuming project (I am developing specific skincare products). Unfortunately, next to my job (which is also becoming more and more of a challenge), my therapy practice, duties everywhere, appointments, and the rare time that’s left to see my children, I try to squeeze this, too into the weekends and evenings. I have been feeling like a robot for weeks. Read more ›

Would I do it again?

the-largest-plant-maze-in-the-world-at-reignac-sur-indre-indre-et-loire-department-france

Sharing a post from two years ago today:

I am at a point in my life where I find myself at the best place I have ever been. But that is not everything. I find myself at a place where I see that what I believed about life, what I felt for decades in my heart is about to manifest. I perceive myself as a wanderer who lost the compass, then after a while found her direction, and is now standing in front of that path again she recognizes as the path she knew all her life.

I suppose… and My Life Gets Complicated

5731600-Miguel-Ruiz-Quote-Don-t-make-assumptions-Find-the-courage-to-ask.jpgWe don’t know how other people feel about certain circumstances. Even if we do it for the best we can still be completely wrong. The way I experience something is unique and no matter how challenging it is for me can be handled even easier by others. Feeling sorry for someone who goes through a time which seems difficult for me can cause me to suppose it is difficult for the other one too. But is it really? And if it is, is it the same difficult? If I believe so then I make that other person’s problem my problem and I may care in a way which can become uncomfortable for them. Perhaps that difficult situation that person is in was caused by a decision I made and feeling guilty about it makes me overcaring. I may try to make something up which is not even desired.  Read more ›

The Magic of a Changed Perspective!

ieUMG0syQ1KLFiAQKSxe_Fresh_Life_Connection.png

A few years back, while mowing the lawn all of a sudden the engine of the mower started to sputter. I stopped and after seconds, it died. Great! I stand in the midst of the lawn not even done with half of it and my mower refuses to work. Now, what to do? Trying to start it again failed. What can be the problem? Perhaps the spark plug. That was always the first thing I checked at my moped. I was used to cleaning or exchanging it and had no problem doing it by myself. OK, so I left the spot behind the mower and walked to the front seeing that the spark plug hung down loosely. No wonder, that the mower did not work and it was an easy task to simply plug it in. All worked properly again! 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 ›

The Power of Silliness!

quote-silly-is-you-in-a-natural-state-and-serious-is-something-you-have-to-do-until-you-can-mike-myers-82-77-77.jpg

It is clear to me that being serious is important to stay focused on your target and to not losing concentration most of all in difficult situations. But it has also become clear to me for many years that this can be exhausting and draw all your energy from you when it lasts too long. Most of all when it is not about temporary situations but for a period of difficult times.

ludwigwittgenstein1.jpg

Giving room to your silliness doesn’t mean that you don’t take circumstances serious. It means that you are opening an outlet to let go of the pressure some situations can cause It means to take a break from the “task” or challenge for some moments. When you keep your humor and see the irony in situations you stop being the problem. When you are laughing you relax the muscles in your whole body and what is important: When you are laughing you are also breathing deeply and fill your whole system with oxygen and therefore energy! It is like an energy shot.silliness.jpgMy boss and I can really tell stories about hectic and stressful times since we experience them for quite a while. But we never lost our silliness and making fun of the situation. We are laughing at ourselves and really can be so silly. Most of all now that I am in charge for so much more since my colleague won’t be coming back to work anymore and we don’t have something new yet, it is a task at times regarding stepping into fields I have never been before and learning quickly how to deal with them. But when you still can laugh about it, you are like a ventilation system. The pressure and stress get blown out and fresh air clears the cells.

untitled11.jpg

It is also one of the tactics of not running the risk of becoming burned out or depressive through some happenings in life or some temporary situations. Keeping your humor means keeping your head above it. I don’t mean to ignore how things are but to see them from a distance in order to have the power to deal with them. Don’t forget that you are not what you are dealing with. You are not your problems. You are what makes you feel well. Because feeling well is your natural state of being. That’s why all things that make you feel good are empowering and all things that make you feel bad are exhausting.

ybuib.gif

We have to deal with difficult situations throughout our lives. Some can lead us to our limits. But they are there to make us develop because every task asks for something more or something new we need to activate within us. It is not something we need to invent. No, it is already there but was asleep until the moment arrived to wake it up. All we need for this lifetime is already within us. Therefore we need to connect with the being within that body through raising our energy frequency for making them match. The fastest way and the most effective tool is feeling good.

wnd_ac27a6323661db34fddc51e6886c5527.jpg

Being silly is not silly at all! It refreshes your body, clears your mind, detaches from who you are not, and that way keeps you healthy and empowers you to face your daily tasks!

In Love and Light

 

The Adventure Of The Journey

maxresdefault (2).jpg

It happens more than we might recognize: We are starting something out of a certain reason. While dealing with it, we find more in that matter or activity or even something completely new. Without us noticing we are going for it with a different energy and intention although it is the same thing but has gotten a new meaning. Read more ›

After I was done writing this post I noticed that it turned out as a sequel to last weeks post Forth or Back? 

A sunny Sunday noon. My view goes out towards the mountains. My willow is in full bloom. The birds are singing and life comes back to me. There is a lot of turmoil behind me already and a lot is still in front of me. But at the moment I feel like in the eye of the hurricane. I am content, patient, full of pictures for a new future. At the moment, the heaviness of the past weeks and months is falling off. I feel light and like moving towards a door which has been already open and only waiting for me to get there.  Read more ›

I usually don’t post a song on the weekends but due to my sister’s challenge, I cannot resist doing so. I thought I’d pick some songs I would not post on a regular Song-of-the-Day post. So here I go with a song by Connie Francis from 1961. The 60’s were a time when many artists performed in German (think of The Beatles or even Elvis Presley). I love her voice and her songs were so typical for the 60’s sound.  Read more ›

when I left work and stepped outside I took the deepest breath. It is still winter but today we have the most beautiful spring day: sun, the birds are singing, 20 °C (about 70 °F). It even smells like spring. It felt like life’s energy had fulfilled me completely in an instant. I drove home with… guess what… open roof top and cranking the music 😂 Read more ›

Day 19 #Loveuary ❤Aphrodisiacs

loveuary-logo

My blog sister, Ritu, of But I Smile Anyway has a beautiful challenge going through this Valentine month. You find more information here!

ylang ylang oil.jpg

When I saw Ritu’s prompt for today I thought of Ylang Ylang immediately. I am aromatherapist and Ylang Ylang is THE aphrodisiacal essential oil. Here is a very good explanation about it from Wikipedia:

“The essential oil is used in aromatherapy. It is believed to relieve high blood pressure, normalize sebum secretion for skin problems, and is considered to be an aphrodisiac. According to Margaret Mead, it was used as such by South Pacific natives such as the Samoan Islanders where she did much of her research. The oil from ylang-ylang is widely used in perfumery for oriental or floral themed perfumes (such as Chanel No. 5). Ylang-ylang blends well with most floral, fruit and wood scents.
In Indonesia, ylang-ylang flowers are spread on the bed of newlywed couples. In the Philippines, its flowers, together with the flowers of the sampaguita, are strung into a necklace (lei) and worn by women and used to adorn religious images.”

Scents trigger something in our brain. They stimulate our mood, influence our hormonal balance, and store memories. The way we are “constructed” makes us more receptive for particular scents and less for others, more liking the ones and disliking others. And that is why there is that specific scent which is more aphrodisiacal than any other scent. And that is the scent of the one you love. It is also one of the reasons you felt attracted in the beginning. Scents play an important role in mating no matter whether animals or humans 😉 😍

The Love Letter

depositphotos_43888589-stock-illustration-text-in-vintage-style.jpg

Heading to the mailbox
Every single day
Waiting for a letter
From my love, sent my way

Through snow storms and through rain
I go to get it checked
But I find only bills
Meanwhile, my nerves get wrecked

Then finally one day
Could not believe it’s true
A letter has arrived
And yes, it is from you

I tear the envelope apart
In high anticipation
Unfold the precious sheet
My heart, heavily racing

Oh, boy, what’s with your writing?
But no, I won’t give up
Now that it has arrived
I won’t already stop

Yet after two long hours
My eyes were tired and dry
All butterflies absconded
All romance has gone by

Instead my inner world
Is one big thunderstorm
Furious I stand up 
and walk to you next door

I throw the letter on the floor
And scream: “Well, thank you, dear!
You want to be romantic?
Then write before your beer!”

In Love and Light

Day 2 – #Loveuary ❤ My Love For My Parents

loveuary-logo.png

My dear blog sister, Ritu, of But I Smile Anyway has a beautiful challenge going through this Valentine month. Love is my favorite subject and how could I resist to participate as much as possible. If you want to check it out you find more information here!

For today’s prompt, I went a little emotional. The relationship with my father was not an easy one. Don’t get me wrong, he did everything that we never had to miss anything. He was very demanding and dominant. But it taught me a lot and meanwhile I benefit a lot from it. I often hear him inside of me for example when I get cool in difficult situations. But I also know that many of the things I do freely today would have caused a lot of discussions. His life was not easy at all and as his daughter and also chief secretary for many years I got to know him from many sides. Although I did not accept all his behavior I could accept him the ways he was and did not take things personally anymore. It was him not me. When he died unexpectedly from sudden heart death I could not even say goodbye. But I was at peace with him, no score to settle.

It was 4 weeks before he died that I started working on the song below “Wish You Were Here”. I had never thought at that time that I would dedicate it to my father. Here it is:

Wish, you were here

 

Verse:

I wish that you were here,

the way you used to be.

I wish that you were here,

but you’re not here with me.

 

To hold me in your arm

and shelter me from harm.

Wanna hear your gentle voice

to calm this inner noise.

 

Chorus:

I wanna feel your presence,

your support and loving energy.

Wanna feel you are around

and walking next to me.

 

That you live on in my heart,

one day I will see clear.

But till I reach this state,

I wish that you were here.

 

Verse:

For now I have to face.

Have to complete this earthly race.

Sometimes I fall apart,

but I have to make a new start.

 

Now I have to be strong.

Find a way to move on.

And somewhen I will see,

that you’re always here with me.

 

Chorus

Somewhen I’ll feel your presence,

your support and loving energy.

I will feel you are around

and walking next to me.

 

That you live on in my heart,

one day I will see clear.

But till I reach this state,

I wish that you were here, that you were here.

 

Middle part:

You left this life, left me alone.

A feeling scary and unknown.

Surrounded by debris,

it’s bending my knees!

 

I wish that you were here,

the way you used to be.

I wish that you were here

but you’re not here with me.

 

 

Chorus

I wanna feel your presence,

your support and loving energy.

Wanna feel you are around

and walking next to me.

 

That you live on in my heart,

one day I will see clear.

But till I reach this

Will I reach this

Till I reach this state,

I wish that you were here.

 

That you live on in my heart,

one day I will see clear.

But till I reach this state,

I wish… I wish that you were here.

I am at a point in my life where I find myself at the best place I have ever been. But that is not everything. I find myself at a place where I see that what I believed about life, what I felt for decades in my heart is about to manifest. I perceive myself as a wanderer who lost the compass, then after a while found her direction, and is now standing in front of that path again she recognizes as the path she knew all her life.

God Did Not Mean To Solve Our Problems…

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 ›

Why Feeling Lonely?

wayne-w-dyer-quote-you-cannot-be-lonely-if-you-like-the-person-you

There can be times in life when we feel like aliens. Like there is no one on this planet who cares for us or who is interested in who we are. Many are interested in what we do but those are the ones who may turn away as the first ones when what we do doesn’t meet their expectations. Why do we get to that point? What can be the reason – or the reasons? Read more ›

Look Beyond!

Whatever I write about are basically situations from life we all experience in our own ways. I take them and try to look beyond and around. Finding out more about backgrounds, contexts, consequences, seeing more in a situation than only how it may appear at first sight. In understanding that there is a reason behind all that happens may not solve the problem but it can lead to a solution or give important insights which make us seeing it all from a different perspective and helps to deal with what happens in a more constructive way.

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

The Challenge of Challenging People!

quote-sometimes-god-uses-difficult-people-like-sandpaper-to-rub-the-rough-edges-off-us-joel-osteen-122-67-43

The topic for today’s post developed from a conversation with Ann of Grubbs n Critters.We were talking about how it can be that other people are able to annoy us even with things which have nothing to do with ourselves. It took me some time before I wrote that post because it is a big topic. There are so many origins, reasons, and causes which are merging. I touched some and hope I could bring it all in a context. That would definitely be food for a book!

soulmates-bring-out-the-best

Let’s start with the soul – what a complex thing. I won’t ever grasp it completely. I hope this is understandable: There is a pool of soul aspects. When an incarnation comes up the soul takes a scoop of itself with more aspects of this and less of that. At the same time, many scoops with different aspects can incarnate. Those scoops feel the connection of the soul family – soul mates. That is when you meet someone and they feel familiar or you feel a connection and cannot explain it. Don’t mix that up with that one true love. A soul mate is not necessarily the love of your life. Soul mates are there to support each other in their developments. Often times that support  is not on the funny side. The goal is development and the soul mates have it in their plans to stick to that goal. They can be your worst enemy but of course also your best friends and even the love of your life. How the support will happen was agreed before the incarnation.

bigstock-pink-little-baby-girl-with-big-41099065

The reason we want to incarnate is first and foremost in order to feel and experience things we cannot feel and experience without a physical body. The insight is so much more profound. There is not only so much to experience for us but there are also numberless ways of experiencing the same feeling. There are new things to experience or issues to dissolve (what we call karma). We cannot experience it all in one incarnation. Therefore too we select particular lessons, encounters, and happenings before we come here. Some things are meant for a specific time, some when we are ready. But all is well coordinated and linked with the life plans of others. Each life plan affects another one. What a gigantic organization!! That’s why there can be so many causes for the things we experience here. But that is only the way to the event. In the end, it is about the resulting challenge. That’s why at some point we need to stop finding an explanation and learn to  trust that it happened for a reason. When something or someone challenges us then we can be sure that it is meant for us to look closer. There is something in it for us – not because we did something wrong but to learn something!

df3af2c78799aedb8425b95c25e4e36b

Let’s get to another point: Why is it that one person can get terribly annoyed about something which someone else doesn’t even notice? Or the other way around: I don’t care but others go nuts. It can also be annoying that some get annoyed about things others don’t care…. lol! If something is not part of our incarnation program than we don’t care or we are having a natural way of dealing with such things. It can also be that we are not at the place yet to deal with certain issues and that’s why we don’t “hear” it because it has not our frequency.  But when it has then we hear it loud and clearly.  Whether it is a soul mate, someone else, circumstances or a particular situation, if we feel reflected in it then it has always something to do with us too. People can mirror something which we don’t like about ourselves. Or we are provoked to step out of our comfort zone in order to progress our evolution. Whatever it is – it is time to work ourselves through the next lesson (fate). Only when we notice that something feels not right we even consider a closer look. That’s why lessons to learn can be so painful. We can pull back and turn away but the issue will only be solved when we faced it. We will get confronted with it over and over again. Each time gives us another gaze on the subject and helps working it out.

quote-how-others-treat-me-is-their-path-how-i-react-is-mine-wayne-dyer-85-8-0893

In the end, it is always about how I deal with what comes towards me. Sometimes there are people whose intention is to bother me. Perhaps I mirror something they don’t like about themselves. Some people are not able to deal with what is going on inside of them. They need that illusion to throw it on others. The problem is that this doesn’t work. At one point we need to understand that it is not about us but about themselves. A huge and liberating lesson to learn because it is not in our responsibility. It is something they need to dissolve. That insight can give so much strength that we are gaining the power and nerves to even deal with them on a daily base (which is important when it is about family or work). It is not going deeper anymore because we realize that it is not our war. Whatever may strike a chord within you look inside yourself first. If you cannot find something right now then the lesson for you may be to not let others make you something you are not. Send them love but it is not up to you to join them in their fight. If you don’t align with their energy they have no grip. Either they will leave you alone or the may change their attitude towards you. What defines your life is not what others do to you but how you react to what they do.

The Challenge of Growth!

shattered-bulb.jpg

Last week I wrote about the seeds we spread constantly through our thoughts, feelings, and actions. 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.

What makes me think lot these days are the tough tests the kids in the UK have to pass. My soul sister Ritu posted a lot about it lately since she is involved as a mom but also as a teacher.

Teachers are struggling because they need to follow the orders but are heartbroken seeing good and diligent kids being frustrated and completely discouraged.

The Magic of a Changed Perspective!

Lately, while mowing the lawn all of a sudden the engine of the mower started to sputter. I stopped and after seconds, it died. Great! I stand in the midst of the lawn not even done with half of it and my mower refuses to work. Now what to do, I am not an engineer. Trying to start it again failed. What could it be? Perhaps the spark plug. That was always the first thing I checked at my moped. I was used to cleaning or exchanging it and had no problem doing it by myself. OK, so I left the spot behind the mower and walked to the front seeing that the spark plug hung down loosely. No wonder, that the mower did not work and it was an easy task to simply plug it in. All worked perfectly again! Read more ›

Awakening – The Power Of Saying No!

Recently I read a great post from Sue of Dreamwalker’s Sanctuary. She wrote about how our own awakening inspires others, how she discovered her inner child and how she was able to embrace it. Please read her post here. I got stuck with the subject Awakening.

To me, we have continuous awakenings throughout our lives. Every day gives us another piece of a picture. Every completed picture is an awakening. But every completed picture is again only a piece of another bigger picture. Awakening is a process. Awakening to one aspect can solve lots of misunderstandings at the same time. One of the most impactful kinds of awakening is learning to say NO! When that is learned lots of issues disappear automatically. In the following example, I talk about how I learned it 13 years ago.

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 ›
