In Love and Light
A soul creates so many dreams
Of what it wants to see
Some you drop while some you chase
Some you make your reality
It is still a phenomenon to me, how some people want something so badly, but don’t do anything but dream to reach their dreams. Don’t get me wrong, dreaming is important to let an inner picture become a vision of what we want to achieve or become. Keeping that dream alive is important because it feeds the belief in that vision to be realized. But then, when the universe actually lays out opportunities and situations before them that lead to the happiness they so long for, they sit back. What are they waiting for? When conditions change in favor of what is desired, it is for the purpose of seizing the opportunities that open up. The work, however, is not taken from us. Only the conditions are created, so that we can realize our visions thereby better. We are not in the land of milk and honey, where fried chicken fly into our mouths. And even if, we are, we still have to chew and swallow ourselves.Read more ›
My wish for you is that
Your wishes get fulfilled.
To make this coming true,
Your doubts have to be killed.
A chance that you missed
May not return
At least it leaves
A lesson to learn
There are so many gifts surrounding us
We only have to open our eyes and see
There is so much beauty surrounding us
We only have to open our minds and feel
A new year starts
What will it bring?
So many options
An endless string
The sun goes down
The sky turns dark
But in my heart
A light does spark
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!Read more ›
I don’t know why I have not thought of sharing this song yet. Perhaps only lately, it was knocking on my door a little harder since I am excited about following my dreams much more determined again. I put them all into drawer for the past few years and focused more on making a living. But the voice of those dreams has become louder and louder until one of them may have escaped the drawer and led me to an initial situation which made me see how empty my life had become with ignoring them. As long as we have our dreams, believe in them, and take every possible step and action to realize them we don’t need to put them into a drawer. Because then doors will open and new roads will appear. Have a wonderful weekend and dream until the cows come home!! Read more ›
It is not always easy to do that. Daily life, obligations, and responsibilities do have a legitimation in this too! But too often we are scared to even think about following that voice which creates such beautiful and alluring pictures in our heads. Read more ›

This is the wall tattoo above my bed. I see it daily and it still speaks to me. I often write about dreams and how they trigger our intention to try something new or to explore new fields. Those dreams are like a preview of something we desire to be or to have. They can generate new courage and strength to take steps with conviction and determination towards the realization of that dream. Read more ›
Do you know that? Either out of the blue or in a steady development new opportunities open up. You are getting offers for a new job or a better position, you see something that makes you think of taking new steps, of learning something new or of going bigger in business. An idea, a vision forms, and is ignited by the enthusiasm it brings. In your excitement, you are talking to a close person and… you only hear reasons why things won’t work out or get counted all the obstacles that “may” occur. Read more ›
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 ›
Denzel Washington is one of my favorite actors. Right, who cares…lol. And what has it to do with my Monday post? After listening to a song on YouTube I stumbled over a speech of Denzel Washington at the Dillard University. Of course, I had to check it out and was amazed. I had no idea that he was such a fantastic motivational speaker. I am sharing the 8 minutes speech (with German subtitles) below. In general, he is talking about things we basically know but it is in the way he conveys and explains them. He nails everything in a way that reaches heart and mind at once. In point 2 of his speech, he said Fail Big. Read more ›

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 ›
Do you know how healthy you are? No, that is not turning out as a post about healthy food. What I mean is, do you know how long you will be healthy, strong, able to approach your plans, visions, dreams? Do you know how much time you are given in this lifetime?

Sometimes there is a vision, a dream, an idea of something that is stirring your heart or that fills you with the passion of an adventurer. But often, following such dreams means taking a step out of the known and into the middle of the unknown. Fear, insecurity, and confusion may creep in and perhaps you distance yourself from that dream. Read more ›
It’s New Year’s Day and what a time
To think about our lives
To leave the past and pain behind
And for new things to strive
For every dream to realize
Will always be a way
So, don’t forget that you can start
Your life anew each day
In Love and Light!
This is not a title that came to my mind just so. I had no plan what to write for today so I took my deck of Gateway Oracle Cards. I bought them for my seminars which are meant to lead the participants towards solutions and to connect with themselves and their inner wisdom. I picked a card but did not turn it around yet. Then I put the rest of the cards together and the card that showed up on the bottom was this one: Read more ›
It looks like this is becoming the next sequel of a series of post which seems to be chapters of a bigger post. This is what I replied to one of the comments to last weeks post What if … it works out?: We only need to change the second part of the question and the obstacle turns into a chance! Read more ›
Do you know how healthy you are? No, that is not turning out as a post about healthy food. I am the wrong one for that. That’s Colleen’s realm.What I mean is, do you know how long you will be healthy, strong, able to approach your plans, visions, dreams? Do you know how much time you are given in this particular lifetime?
There is this touching story about that man who caresses the beautiful silky nightgown of his wife which he just found in a drawer. She kept it untouched for special occasions to surprise him. In the end, she never wore them and he never saw it on her … We don’t know what happens in one year, heck, we don’t even know what happens in the next moment. That doesn’t mean that we need to panic and start hectically to accomplish everything at once. It shall simply say that we need to stop postponing things.
Yes, sometimes there are different priorities. But what I am talking about here are the things we could do but don’t. It is more convenient to find an excuse instead of making the effort to get something started. It can be out of a laziness. Very often it is out of a lack of self-esteem – the fear of failing, the fear of being questioned, the fear of being criticized. We use excuses like I am not smart enough, I am too old, I don’t have the time, I never did it before.
So what? If we never do something we never did before, then we never do anything! What is progress? It is evolving into something that wasn’t there before. We are here to evolve. That is the meaning of life. During life our bodies are developing, our minds are developing, our personalities are developing, and so shall develop the life we live!
We all have skills, talents, abilities, dreams. The combination of it all is what waits for you to be brought into the world or be developed within you. You are 70 and always dreamed of learning Mandarin? Do it!!! Don’t say, I am too old. What do you have to lose?
One of those excuses which make the least sense to me is to resign of something out of respectfulness of others. For example parents who cannot let go of their children: “I cannot travel the world for one year because it would break my mother’s heart when I am gone for so long.” “I cannot accept that job because I had to move to another city which would hurt my parents.” I can get mad when I hear something like that. No parents must make their children feel guilty when for living their own life. From day one on parents need to be aware of the fact that they raise their children in order to prepare them for life. A child has to be supported in finding its own way in this world. Of course, it is different when parents are sick and in need of help.
It is your life. Don’t wait until you look back and realize that you don’t need excuses anymore because the opportunities have already gone. It is the worst thing I can imagine I could do to myself. Because in the end there is no one to blame but I myself.
Don’t be afraid of leaving your comfort zone and breaking out of your old life. You can never fail. I repeat: YOU CAN NEVER FAIL!!! Because whatever you do today brings you further than you were yesterday. Every insight is a step on the stairs of your personal evolution.
Wear those silky nightgowns and enjoy them. Make others smile with who you are. Enjoy your life in filling it with who you are and in expanding that person you are. You don’t know what the next day brings. Use the time you are given. Make this education, join this class, do something that you always wanted to do and take first steps towards it. Even if you don’t know how to accomplish it. There are people to ask, there are books to read, there is the internet. Rome wasn’t built in a day. There is no deadline. You only need to start and move forward step by step. Some steps are happening faster and easier, some need more time.
Entering this new world within your life will open up new options too. You will find even more fulfillment than you had ever imagined. All the new things you encounter leave something that inspires and shows you more things to explore. You will discover much more about yourself and you will feel as if life had just begun.
You have come into this world to live your purpose – in order to live a fulfilled life and in order to serve others with it at the same time. This life is a giving and receiving. Life is for living! We only live when we feel ourselves. We feel ourselves the best when we dilate our inner world into the outer world.
Fill your life with meaning and start today!
In Love and Light
I just came home after I spent an hour in the woods. I went to a beautiful place within the forest. The sun was shining and since the trees don’t carry leaves yet it was so light and sunny. I sat down next to a tree and simply enjoyed the peace, the silence but also the singing of the birds. No one around. I started meditating and felt such a liberation and lightness. It was a moment I made peace with everything. No past, no future – just now. What was doesn’t matter – what might be is a dream. And there was this poem that just flew to my mind with the warm Spring breeze. Read more ›
A beating heart and glowing eyes,
A touch that calms your mind,
A silent thought like “Can this be?”
Starts clearing what was blind. Read more ›
Today I want to share a song I heard in the mall yesterday. I love the song since it reminds me that we should never stop dreaming. In dreaming we lay the base for changes to the better. Just let’s never forget to start living our dreams in order to manifest those changes. Read more ›
Since I am in Germany today giving a lecture I am not able to post the song I heard first today. But in order to not interrupt the sequence prepared a post in advance with a song I love a lot. I love the music, the style, the lyrics, and holy joy I love the guitars. Read more ›
