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 ›

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.

My very first post – #MyFirstPostRevisited

my-first-post_revisited-bloghop.jpg

A tag started by a blogger/writer called Sarah Brentyn, asking us to revisit our first ever blog posts! When I saw that my dear blog sister Ritu tagged me for this challenge I thought what a lovely way of doing a trip down memory lane. It is almost three years ago that I started blogging and it took me a while to remember that first post without checking. Read more ›

Guest author: Erika Kind – Finding meaning

The amazing Sue Vincent invited me for writing a guest post. I am amazed how she created the post! A huge thank you, Sue!

Please head over to Sue’s for commenting. Thank you!

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

pre dawn 147Image: Sue Vincent

I feel absolutely thankful and honored that our wonderful Sue kindly asked me to write a guest-post for her blog. Her request came out of the blue for me and I am happy and excited! I asked Sue what she would like me to write about. She said, “It would be lovely if you could write a little about your books and what led you to write them… but if something else ‘wants’ to be written, that is fine too.”  So, this is what happened 😃:

What is it that makes someone write a book? I believe – no matter what book it is – that behind it is a personal story. It may be a love of communicating, an escape into different worlds or life stories, a wish to experience more which is possible when diving into another reality, or simply our own development which…

New Book Clip

The publisher of the German edition of my book I’m Free notified me that finally (after 5 years) the book clip was up on YouTube!

It is so much fun to be a weird mom!

This week, Keith reminded me of a post I wrote about 2 years ago. In that post, I shared a bit of my silliness and craziness, and it made me laugh again. I thought I could actually share it again with you here:

Isn’t it the happiest feeling to just be yourself? When you feel good and just smile all over your whole face without a reason? When you laugh out loud because you feel like it? When your zest for life makes you shining like the sun? When you crank the music in your car and the bass is vibrating in your stomach – open window, open rooftop? And perhaps you are even singing to the songs? Read more ›

The Fear to Succeed

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

open-door-sky1 (1)

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

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

16812-happy-journey-tips-image.jpg

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

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

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

fba045ca735810922f6b832e92e82c25.jpg

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

1bb7dcfd8fc0a465bd29d35853ef87d8.jpg

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

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

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

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

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 ›

The Freedom to be Me

A week ago I gave a lecture in Germany with this title. It was such a fulfilling and joyful experience which totally gave me the freedom to be me. Or actually, the decision to speak about what I want to share is the freedom I give myself to be me. That is what I want to do: Sharing the beauty of life and possible ways that others find their own beauty in life. The pre-condition for finding into the life you want to live is to get to feel who you actually are! Read more ›

Reincarnation and Karma

Whenever people talk about karma they usually mean something bad, that follows and bothers them. If someone has to suffer from a bad disease, is bad lucky all the time or even “struck by fate” some people explain it with “bad karma”. They see it like a punishment of something caused in a former life and now the person has to face it again and again. Some also talk about “good karma” which means you get rewarded for the good things you did in a former life. Read more ›

Reincarnation: What is the reason we incarnate?

Due to my absence I want to share a 2 part series about reincarnation with you which I published last year in November. I hope you like it:

November in Central Europe is the month we remember our deceased loved ones. November 1st therefore is a holiday. According to it the season changes: the nights are getting longer, the trees are mostly loosing their last leaves, it is getting colder and we have a lot of fog over here. I thought this would be a fitting time for such a post in order to bring a little light into this season.

Reincarnation is a very wide ranged topic and of course I don’t know all the answers. But there are segments which not only feel true to me but which are even like a knowing or kind of memory. This subject is also most present throughout my book I’m Free .

26_Fallen Angel_unknown

Some people say that we are reincarnating in order to get enlightened, since we are the fallen angels that have to find their way back to God. Once enlightened, they say, we don’t need to incarnate anymore. Others say, whatever we are struggling with in this life is a consequence of a former life. Another statement is, that we have to incarnate in every life form (mineral, plant, animal) before we were ready for a human experience. And also there is the statement that we have to experience everything ourselves before we don’t need to incarnate anymore. This would include being a murder, a victim, a mother, a father, a boss, a slave, suffering, bathing in money,… simply everything that can be experienced – and that’s a lot! The Buddhists say that if you behaved in a certain bad way, you have to incarnate in a lower level the next time. It means, you will be one of the poor people,  born in a harder environment, or even get back to the animal state. If you behaved well then you will reach a higher level until you end Samsara (the never-ending circle of birth and death) and enter Nirvana.

I want to tell you, how I feel about reincarnation and I try to keep it simple. The reason we incarnate first and foremost is to experience our spiritual existence in a different way. We want to feel, who we are, see, who we are, and share, who we are. But most of all we want to remember who we really are. As long as we live in the non-physical realm we know about our light, we feel the love and the inexhaustible never ending energy we are. But after a while only knowing this  is not sufficient anymore. We know it in theory but want to feel it. Neale Donald Walsch put it great in a workshop I joined. He said: “What is all the knowledge of sex of a use, if you cannot try it out and feel how it really is?” Arriving in this body we forget, who we really are. And throughout our physical life time we make experience over experience which gives us hints and insights. Getting such an Aha is like growing out of your shell and feeling like new-born. You think that life has just begun because you found out that what you believed before about life and yourself was a big misunderstanding. When I found out that I don’t need to accept what others want me to do, I was walking on clouds for a week.

candle_in_the_snow_winter_christmas_hd-wallpaper-1629484

Look at this picture: It is summer and noon time. You stand outside in the hot sun and you lighten up a candle. It is nice, yes, but the effect is pretty poor. Now think of a dark and cold winter’s night when lightning up the candle. Do you recognize the difference? Do you FEEL the difference? You are a candle and in order to remember your light, you have to see yourself surrounded by darkness. That’s the only way to experience your powerful source! That’s why we have to go through hard times in order to feel our strength and develop abilities or attitudes that are lying dormant within us.  What it is you want to discover was set by you before the incarnation. (Now you get an idea why we all have different goals and purposes.) Once you have discovered a part of your light, you will never drift back to the old misunderstanding. You have not only grown happier but also a lot stronger and wiser. That’s why older people often get quiet, more tolerant, and a lot more satisfied with the small wonders in life. They see the light in themselves and in everything, they get back to the basics, and what really matters in life.

duality-1

Also in a physical body we can make things visible and touchable. We ourselves can touch, smell, taste, enjoy physical comfort. We also can feel emotions like anger, greed, jealousy, rage, hate, bondage, frustration. And of course the opposite like happiness, optimism, curiosity, freedom, health, tolerance, love,, compassion, helpfulness, gratitude. And this is the reason why we choose earth. Here we are in a world of opposites. We learn out of opposites what we want and what we don’t want. We need to know what’s cold in order to appreciate the warmth. And as I said: We need to know darkness in order to cherish our own light. Duality is the important tool down her in order to learn the lessons, collect wisdom, and make the experiences we wished for,before we came into this body.

In my next post about reincarnation I will write about the mystic word “karma” which is so misused!

How to live a successful life! Part 5

130706 - 130726 KALIFORNIEN mit Bruno,Rikki,Vanessa,Jason,Joe 331

This is the last part of the success series. In this part I want you to encourage to faithfully follow your dream no matter if you have to face some struggles on the way, no matter if you already know about the whole plan, no matter how long it might take, and no matter whether someone did it before or not.

Follow YOUR dream!
Life is in a constant move even when we are standing still. The circumstances in our lives are moving which means that we are pushed to move. Therefore standing still is impossible. Don’t wait till you are pushed to be somewhere or someone you don’t want to be only because you are not willing to create your own footsteps. Living other people’s dreams has never brought success but frustration, depression, and diseases. It weakens you since it is not your dream and not your potential and therefore nothing you could give from yourSelf. And as Wayne Dyer says: You can’t give away what you don’t have! To be pushed in a direction you don’t feel comfortable with shows you merciless that it won’t work since it is not your dream and therefore not meant for you to be.

Take the first step, have faith in yourSelf, keep up a happy knowing that your dreams are supposed to come true since they have grown out of you, watch the first signs of unfolding, and take the next step in faith again. Following your dreams shows your gratitude for what you were provided with to go through this life in your own certain way. If you don’t do it, no one does it!
Believe in you!

Believe in your dreams,
Believe your inner voice.
Believe that you always
Will have your own choice.

Believe in your strength,
Believe you’re unique.
Believe that your power
Is enough to succeed.

Just believe in yourself
Only half as I do
And I give you my promise –
It’s all coming true!

– Erika Kind

Summary
Look back in your own life, what would you say was your biggest success? It was the times when you expanded yourSelf into the outside world.

You will never ever lose your path as long as you believe in you, be authentic, love what you do, have an open mind and follow your dreams steadfastly. Your dreams are part of your life’s purpose. Living your purpose creates your heaven on earth. Never forget the greatest power you always have at hands: the divine energy, that you are, called love! Whatever you do with love in your heart will make everything you do a gift to the world.

Success is only a wonderful symptom that occurs out of your authentic way of living in love – flowing through all of your actions.

In Love and Light!

See the previous chapter Part 4 Don’t doubt but open up your mind!

How to live a successful life! Part 2

IMG_0054

In Part 1 I was talking about the belief on yourSelf. Today I want to show you the importance of being authentic.

Authenticity
Success is not to simply get approval and a shining figurine for your show case.
It is to act and unfold your life from a place in your heart, where the potential and power of yourSelf has been lying since you were born into this world. As soon as you act out of the nature of your being, you will be lavished with approval, honoring and compliments. The difference is that you don’t necessarily need it anymore since your success has already been felt in simply doing what you are. When you do what you are, you are authentic. Authenticity radiates strength. And this true strength is what people like. Strength lets others feel comfortable in your presence. They want to be with you, and want to be embraced by the radiation of your positive and uplifting energy. When you are authentic, real, and pure, then you are transparent. People will believe you and get inspired to live their own dreams, and get successful in leading a fulfilled life in alignment with who they really are.

If you want to be respected, you need to respect who you are in the first place. Accept yourSelf with everything you are today. Show empathy for yourSelf. Be tolerant with yourSelf. Just love yourSelf the way you are. Today you are the best you ever with everything that lies inside of you. All your feelings, experiences, desires, knowledge, behaviors have created this unique you, who you are. There is no one like you in the whole world and that makes you so special. Be proud of who you are. Cherish who you are. In loving yourSelf and the resulting authenticity you give others the permission to do the same. In how you live your life you are always an example to others. The more authentic you are the more others feel liberation in being fearlessly authentic as well.

Say this affirmation and pass it on:
I am a shining being of God and I am here to bring light into the world.

Next week I am going to write about: Love, what you do!

My Symbol Of Letting Go

Letting go is a topic in everybody’s life at times. Yesterday I was talking to a friend and I realized that during the past weeks more and more friends are posting about letting go or about their process of letting go. There are so many different reasons or stories behind. May it be about love, about plans we made, about disappointments, being hurt. But in the end we can mostly sum it up to two points: Read more ›

She Let Go… She Embraced… She Is Back…

… stronger than ever before!

I apologize for my short noticed disappearance. There was some turmoil in my private life from one moment to another. The old story about letting go. I will tell you about my experience after A Big Thank You to all of you. I am so moved how much you all cared. I had never ever expected that. Although I closed the comment section on my last post on Monday many of my wonderful friends sensed something and simply commented in the loveliest ways on a different post. Colleen, Ritu, Zee, and Michelle even stayed in touch with me via email. One year ago almost nobody knew me and today people say I was missed and they make the effort to get in touch with me in order to show me that I am loved… that was overwhelming! I am profoundly touched by so much love, compassion, and care. I don’t know how to thank you. I love you all from the deepest bottom of my heart! And believe me, I missed you all badly! My community rocks!!! Read more ›

Miracles Are Not Depending On Heaven!

I just finished writing on my latest book which is about miracles. I thought I write a little about this today. What is a miracle? How and why do miracles happen? We all wished for a miracle at times and I know that some of my friends are doing it right now.

What is the definition of miracle? I’d say it is a surprising, unexpected, sometimes strongly wished occurring happening, turn, encounter, or “coincidence”.  Of course we only talk about a miracle when it shows a positive result. If we experience a negative happening we talk about bad luck, karma… But in the end negative like positive has the same root with two different outcomes. Read more ›

Please don’t get impatient the program needs a moment for loading. The interview has 4 sections of 13 minutes interview and 2 minutes advertisements each. You don’t need to listen to the whole show all at once. Just pause and continue later.

The first 9 minutes of the first section are occupied by Kimberly. But then I am coming into the picture… no… radio … anyway, you hear me after about 9 – 10 minutes.

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 ›

He’s always been of great support. He is not only my teacher but has become a mentor over the years who is responsible a lot for my development. He invited me to do this lecture together with him in order to promote our seminars which we do together since last year. 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 ›

Christmas is coming! Do you want to encourage someone or want to make someone know that you see so much more in them than they do? Or do you want to help a person to free themselves from their homemade chains? It is not easy to find the right words, or that person is not even interested in facing any discussions. Then you might need a nonbinding tool wich is available when needed. Such a tool is a book.

“I’m Free – Awareness of Who You Are by Discovering Who You Are Not!” is helping to overcome fears. It leads back to the own inner power. It shows the readers their whole potential and motivates to choose a new path in order to be the creators of their lives and not their slaves.

“I’m Free” is available as hardcover, softcover, and ebook at any online bookseller you prefer like:
http://www.amazon.com/Im-Free-Awareness-Who-Discovering/dp/1452593701/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1417504560&sr=8-1&keywords=i%27m+free+erika+kind

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/im-free-erika-kind/1118873282?ean=9781452593708

Or at my publisher:
http://bookstore.balboapress.com/Products/SKU-000675694/Im-Free.aspx

The book is also available in German. Also see my page Books!

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.

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!

In Love and Light!

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.

Charming Pasadena

Back from my trip to So Cal I finally caught up with most things and now I want to start posting all of the beautiful things I could experience next to my unforgettable book signing experience at I CAN DO IT Pasadena 2014.

Since my trip started in Pasadena I will begin with this lovely place I have been to for the third time in my life. First and foremost I’d like to show photos of a beautiful botanical garden: The Huntington Library

It is a huge place with all different kinds of gardens like a Japanese, rose, palm, subtropical, desert, jungle gardens and many more! A breathtaking dive into different kinds of worlds. Really beautiful!

Embedded in the Gardens there are some precious and big buildings accommodating galleries, libraries and art collections. Also they have changing exhibitions. A great place to spend all day long. Unfortunately the operation hours are usually only from noon to 4.30 pm. So you really have to be there when they open up.

Here we go with some impressions of the City of Pasadena, beginning with the Civic Auditorium. This is one of three buildings of the Pasadena Convention Center. Here the I CAN DO IT convention took place. The Civic Auditorium has room for 3000 people in the audience. Many lectures were given in this building started with Wayne W. Dyer.153

You can find lots of shops and restaurants along the Colorado Blvd. Also a mall is located on that street.145 20141024_101819 IMG_4732 IMG_4730 IMG_4731 IMG_4671 IMG_4669

Pasadena is definitely worth a visit!

Reincarnation: What is the reason we incarnate?

alex_grey-newborn

November in Central Europe is the month we remember our deceased loved ones. November 1st therefore is a holiday. According to it the season changes: the nights are getting longer, the trees are mostly loosing their last leaves, it is getting colder and we have a lot of fog over here. Since my blogger friend Rob from  Weight2lose2013  inspired me to write about reincarnation, I thought this would be a fitting time for such a post in order to bring a little light into this season.

Reincarnation is a very wide ranged topic and of course I don’t know all the answers. But there are segments which not only feel true to me but which are even like a knowing or kind of memory. My book I’m Free contains this subject as well throughout the book.

Some people say that we are reincarnating in order to get enlightened, since we are the fallen angels that have to find their way back to God. Once enlightened, they say, we don’t need to incarnate anymore. Others say, whatever we are struggling with in this life is a consequence of a former life. Another statement is, that we have to incarnate in every life form (mineral, plant, animal) before we were ready for a human experience. And also there is the statement that we have to experience everything ourselves before we don’t need to incarnate anymore. This would include being a murder, a victim, a mother, a father, a boss, a slave, suffering, bathing in money,… simply everything that can be experienced – and that’s a lot! The Buddhists say that if you behaved in a certain bad way, you have to incarnate in a lower level the next time. It means, you will be one of the poor people,  born in a harder environment, or even get back to the animal state. If you behaved well then you will reach a higher level until you end Samsara (the neverending circle of birth and death) and enter Nirvana.

I want to tell you, how I feel about reincarnation and I try to keep it simple. The reason we incarnate first and foremost is to experience our spiritual existence in a different way. We want to feel, who we are, see, who we are and share, who we are. But most of all we want to remember who we really are. As long as we live in the non-physical realm we know about our light, we feel the love and the inexhaustible neverending energy we are. But after a while only knowing this  is not sufficient anymore. We know it in theory but want to feel it. Neale Donald Walsch put it great in a workshop I joined. He said: “What is all the knowledge of sex of a use, if you cannot try it out and feel how it really is?” Arriving in this body we forget, who we really are. And throughout our physical life time we make experience over experience which gives us hints and insights. Getting such an Aha is like growing out of your shell and feeling like new born. You think that life has just begun because you found out that what you believed before about life and yourself was a big misunderstanding. When I found out that I don’t need to accept what others want me to do, I was walking on clouds for a week.

Look at this picture: It is summer and noon time. You stand outside in the hot sun and you lighten up a candle. It is nice, yes, but the effect is pretty poor. Now think of a dark and cold winter night when lightening up the candle. Do you recognice the difference? Do you FEEL the difference? You are a candle and in order to remember your light, you have to see yourself surrounded by darkness. That’s the only way to experience your powerful source! That’s why we have to go through hard times in order to feel our strength and develop abilities or attitudes that are lying dormant within us.  What it is, you want to discover was set by you before the incarnation. (Now you get an idea why we all have different goals and purposes.) Once you have discovered a part of your light, you will never drift back to the old misunderstanding. You have not only grown happier but also a lot stronger and wiser. That’s why older people often get quiet, more tolerant, and a lot more satisfied with the small wonders in life. They see the light in themselves and in everything, they get back to the basics, and what really matters in life.

Also in a physical body we can make things visible and touchable. We ourselves can touch, smell, taste, enjoy phyiscal comfort. We also can feel emotions like anger, greed, jealousy, rage, hate, bondage, frustration. And of course the opposite like happiness, optimism, couriosity, freedom, health, tolerance, love, empathy, helpfulness, gratitude. And this is the reason why we choose earth. Here we are in a world of opposites. We learn out of opposites what we want and what we don’t want. We need to know what’s cold in order to cherish the warmth. And as I said: We need to know darkness in order to cherish our own light. Duality is the important tool down her in order to learn the lessons, collect wisdom, and make the experiences we wished for, before we came into this body.

In my next post about reincarnation I will write about the mystic word “karma”, which is so misused!

If you want to share your own experiences or thoughts, feel free to comment and ask questions! I’d love to here from you!

In Love and Light!

Another big step on the ladder of realized dreams!

My dear friends. I am still in Pasadena and can’t wait to share this wonderful weekend with you after the completion of my book signing.

IMG_4646

On Friday we were in the audience with 3000 people to hear Wayne W. Dyer’s lecture. The starting point of the big change in my life definitely has had to do with Wayne Dyer.  In 2009 I found his book at the Los Angeles Airport, while waiting for our delayed plane. I did not know Wayne Dyer at all, but the book attracted me. In 1000 years I would have never ever thought that one day I was signing my books about transformation of life at the same event Wayne Dyer is giving a lecture.

Yesterday we also had a fantastic day joining workshops of great authors like Brian Weiss, John Holland, and Caroline Myss. I cannot even count the amount of goose bumps and insights I was given. And today on Sunday I finally had the chance to see the amazing Gregg Braden.

IMG_4738

But nothing ever on this weekend can catch up with the book signing today. I was provided with 75 books to sign and give away for free. Although I did not doubt, that I would be busy signing books both of my 30 minutes, I worried a little if the time would be enough. Then all of a sudden the doors opened from the previous lecture given by Doreen Virtue and people swarmed all over the place lining up in highspeed in front of my booth. I was totally surprised. So many said, that they already took a look into my book and hurried to the opened book signing in order to not miss their chance to meet me and get a signed copy. I was overwhelmed, couldn’t stop smiling and laughing and had such great moments with every encounter. Believe it or not, but after 30 minutes there were only 3 books left. And before I went into the break those books were gone too. Even all the books on the publisher’s table which were for sale where gone at the end of the day. When I was out of free copies people went downstaires bought my book and came back in order to have it signed by me. Here are some impressions:

IMG_4655Here you see me with my lovely booth neighbour Kay Christy.

IMG_4693 IMG_4710 IMG_4702 IMG_4715

IMG_4717Doreen Virtue

Also I was so happy to meet one of my WordPress friends Kevin from http://kevinhotter.com He and his family came to visit me at the booth. He told me that he plans to come by, but after this exciting signing experience I forgot about it and was so happily surprised when they showed up! Since it was the end of my signing period my husband and I had some time for a wonderful talk. Thanks Kevin and Ellen for visiting me with your cute little daughter. I appreciate it a lot!IMG_4725

What a day!!! A dream has come true in many ways. When we were sitting in the warm Californian sun during the break between the two signing periods I said to my husband that I don’t get what is just about to happen. When I saw  Wayne Dyer 5 years ago at a lecture  I wished that one day I would be able to do what he does: Spreading encouragement, motivation, and love in order to inspire others to fill their lives with all the beauty and joy they are in core. Today I got so much closer to the picture I have carried inside for 5 years. I have published 4 books and my whole life changed in highspeed! I love my life and I am grateful to no end for all the pain, all the fears, all the doubts and all the tears and frustrations of the past. They made me see the difference in life and they made me jump out of my self made prison. I would have never experienced a feeling of liberation and conscious self development without them.

Life is good! If it’s not good, we need to make it good. If we can’t make it good, we are using excuses! If we know what we want or at least what we don’t want anymore we can make a shift. Yes, it needs courage because we don’t know what a new road has in store for us. But to face the unknown is the only way in order to invent our lives new and it is the only way to evolve.

In Love and Light!

On my way to Pasadena!

153

I am so excited! Today is the day and I am gonna leave for Pasadena! Two years ago I went to the I CAN DO IT! event as a visitor to join Wayne Dyer’s lecture. This time I not only can meet all the amazing authors  but most of all be an official and promoted part of the event. A small step compared to what others already made but a huge one for me!

154 164

I am not on stage (this time) but I am an officially promoted international author with book signing hours:

Sunday 10.00 – 10.30 am and 12.00 – 12.30 pm I hope to meet as many of my dear co-bloggers as possible. I really found a wonderful community over here where everybody can share what ever they have in mind or heart.

What a long way I have come since Pasadena emerged in my mind: It must have been a movie I saw once in my teenage years where they passed a signpost saying Pasadena. I don’t remember the movie at all and also don’t know if Pasadena even played a role in it. For some reason it attracted me completely and the picture of that signpost was burned in my head and heart from that moment on. It was one of my dreams to once passing a sign with Pasadena on it on the highway. When I went to California for the first time in my life in 2009, I couldn’t believe it when we unexpectedly passed the sign and it happened that I even went to Pasadena. Meanwhile Pasadena has become a new meaning for me and the signpost of my dreams might have been a reminder what life has in store for me. A dream come true in many ways – one more time! And I will keep on working on it to experience more of my fulfilled dreams until the end of days. It also is another proof that whatever dream, yearning or vision is glowing inside of you is your Soul reminding you to your inner bucket list for this incarnation. Checking this bucket list will never disappoint you but lead you to spheres inside of you which words can never express.

I can’t wait to post about my experiences and make you part of one of my greatest adventures and the next big step of my new life regarding following my voice and living my dreams! This is what life is meant to be!

Book cover I'm Free by Erika Kind

In the last few days many new followers have joined my blog. I am overwhelmed by the number. I am so happy and grateful for each one of my readers and I don’t want to miss one of you. This is an opportunity to say Thank you to all of you. It is another opportunity to introduce my book I’m Free to all my new wonderful followers.

I‘m Free is the reason why I am here on WordPress but also on Twitter and Facebook. You can find me there too and I would love to follow you on those platforms as well.

I’m Free is the third of meanwhile four books I published. The first one was a poem book with German and English poems. I wasn’t very happy with my publisher and hence it is not available everywhere.

My own life experience or in other words: my experience what life actually might mean and the misunderstanding and illusion I lived for 39 years made me write the book. Please take a look at the book trailer.

Have a wonderful and blessed day!

In Love and Light!

Happy Weekend with Book Promotion

What an amazing weekend lies behind me! Three days of being around the beautiful people of my publisher, talking to people at the booth, signing books, and holding two lectures about what I love most: the beauty, power and love we carry inside!

Here are some impressions of that weekend:

This is the booth of my publisher DAS GUTE BUCH20140926_152720

I feel so honored and blessed that I could be all weekend long around the beautiful Omnec Onec. She is a kind of person I have never met before in person: She is such a small person but her smile and her loving energy fills the room. She is so modest and lovable, always smiling and always interested in everything and she is holding so much wisdom. I am so happy I was  part of her weekend as well. Also I joined one of her lectures. If you ever have the chance to meet this woman… grab it!20140926_173854

My two lectures were amazing. Although we had not that many people at the fair, the organization wished for, I had a surprising high number of people in my audience both days.

And after the lecture I was busy signing books and talking to people who joined the lecture.IMG_4513My weird hair… 🙂

Although it was a promotion event for my German book I also presented my English book at the booth as you can see!

Although the weather was gorgeous outside – we had such a lousy summer –  I did not mind it a bit. I am simply happy and grateful that I can add this to my memories!

Living spiritually doesn’t mean becoming a saint!

scheinheiliger engel

Actually I wanted to write a post about something totally different. But today while I was doing my household (I always get the best ideas during vacuuming, cleaning the bathrooms, or mowing the lawn – my head must be pretty empty then…), I started thinking about this subject.

I am pretty aware of who I am and of the reason why I am here. But instead of constantly being patient and polite and full of forgiveness, I just live my life with all its emotions. And I do it right because I am aware of the reason why I am here. How does that come?

Being spiritual doesn’t mean that we have to become a spotless person. Uargh,… no way! That doesn’t work at all – at least not with me. I am having a hot temper and can be stubborn, jealous, angry, moody and sooooo impatient (just to show a few examples) – I am simply living the life of a human being and I love it! At the moment living leaving like a saint felt too boring to me. This life has too much in store for me to be explored and felt in all its depth. Being spiritual means being aware of this and at the same time that you are a blissful, precious being, and being loved at all times of your existence. You only exist right because you are loved. Love is the origin of your existence. It is the existence of everything and all! Everything we see, encounter, feel, touch is part of all that exists – whether physically or non-physically! What you are is pure spiritual energy (spotless energy).

But when we are that holy beings, why do we come to earth and be so mean, fight, compete, have fears? Why do we do that to us? Because we want to experience (not only know) who we are. We want to be reminded to it by everything that comes our way and pushes us more and more into the direction of awareness and awakening. As soon as we start to recognize our origin and why we are here, we see life in a totally different way. We understand that we are here to use our spiritual power combined with the physical possibilities to feel ourselves to the deepest and to extend ourselves into this physical world with everything we brought along.

Since everybody brings something different along, has different goals and ways to achieve things, many people are often misunderstood. That’s why many people are not taken serious and are laughed at for their visions that others cannot understand – until they start to step up the ladder of manifesting what they believe in.

Spirituality doesn’t mean to change your personality, to play the role of a holy person, but to take responsibility for your behavior. However you act or react is your decision! Being spiritual means being aware of who you are and of the reason why you have come to earth. When you are aware of who you are then you automatically know AND FEEL the connection with all that is, and with this certain love which you will never find in the physical world since it is far beneath it. You will consciously feel the constant flow of power and energy of your Source you are connected to endlessly. You will probably change your attitude and your point of view since you are aware of it all, and this will change your life dramatically. The reason is: You don’t have a reason anymore to fear anything. You not only understand your existence but also come to understand the existence of everybody else. And this again makes you develop a natural distance to taking things personal. You will feel more love and understanding. But you also will start to live this lifetime to the fullest. You will follow your dreams since you know that you have come here to do it. You will be happy in a way you never knew it before – not happy as an emotion because of nice circumstances but happy as basic condition of yourSelf!

Being aware of your spiritual core doesn’t mean to become a saint but to reconnect with who you are. And who you are is sacred – however you live it.

Be aware of the spirit you are. Feel it and embed it into life. But also feel yourself deep with all the emotions your personality carries. You need your certain characteristics to walk your own personal path through this lifetime.

Wherever you are today…… you will be propelled to places you have never dreamed of in your wildest dreams! Enjoy your life! You deserve it!!!

In Love and Light!

Freedom is not a destination, we have to arrive.
It is not even the path to a destination.
Freedom is a condition – a part of our true being.
Every person can be free at any time.
That’s why freedom is not a matter of external circumstances.

Freedom is the privilege of the soul to experience itself the way it wants to. When we remember who we really are, then we know that we are unlimited. Freedom is a consequence of conscious realization. Realize who you are, by letting go who you are not.

Freedom is to see the world how we want to see it. Our perception is unlimited and so are the possibilities, to invent our life new. Life happens and you cannot mold people the way you want them to be but you have always the possibility to change your attitude. It is not about what life throws towards your feet but what you make out of it. Life provides the material, and our creativity lets us build our art works out of it. The way you create your art work is your path of life – therefore you can never build anything wrong since your creations are always exactly synchronized with your current state of mind. You can tell from your creations what you radiated before. If you don’t like your creations, that way you can find out what you need to change about your attitude in order to get different results.

Freedom is to self-actualize. When you hear an inner call or an idea drifts more and more to the surface, when you feel a flame of joy blaze up when thinking on a project, then follow this call. It is your personal freedom not getting irritated by critics. Only you know which path to choose and how it shall be walked. In the end only you can walk your path. Others can talk you into this or that, but they won’t have to deal with the consequences.

When I have a new idea, then I keep it within as long as I took the first steps. I only discuss it with a small circle of people who might support my idea and give me helpful hints. At the end negative influences cannot keep me from following my goals but they can have a disturbing effect. That’s why I keep my visions private up to the first signs of unfolding for I know I will go for this idea and I am not willing to let others get into my way. A long time I did it the other way around since I was self-doubting and insecure. But I learned that only my way of living my life leads to my happiness, fulfillment and success.

I am always amazed when I look at an invention we use every day without even thinking about it. It is normal; it has been always there – for us! But at times I stop and think, what was before! What was before the telephone (or telegraph) was invented? And I am not talking about cell phones but the real beginning. What was before we had electricity? And how did someone get the idea of inventing it? What happened to make someone think of inventing electric light? How did someone get the idea of taking photos? I mean how do you get the idea of something no one knows or has seen or heard of before?

I don’t mean further developments but the pure first thought.  It is fantastic how the conditions have to flow together and what has to happen in order to let a picture show up in their mind. All those people – all inventors – are purely open. They look out to the world with open eyes and an open mind. They are looking for inspiration and let it work inside of them. They are not afraid of failing but of figuring out how they can make things better or easier. All of them had a vision. They got their ideas from their daily activities. They all had an imagination of something that wasn’t there before. And then they kept up the motivation to stand tall against all doubts of everybody around! They did not give up – at times I am sure they reached their limits.

We don’t need to be inventors of pioneering developments. But we all can be inventors in our own world, in our own life. All the great pioneers shall act as proof that it is possible to create something that wasn’t there before. Do you think Joanne K. Rowling (the author of the Harry Potter series) wrote the books because she knew because it can to be realized? She did not give up sending her manuscripts to several publishers with her last money. The last one sent her a contract. And you know what happened after.

6 years ago I thought I would never even dare to stand behind my opinion. And today? After many transformation processes I published books and talk to audiences all over the world. I started believing in me, my visions, my unique task in this world, my skills, my purpose and I did not care about any doubting voices anymore. And you know what? There even where no doubting voices anymore. My thoughts changed, my mind changed, my beliefs changed, my actions changed and therefore my radiation changed. New people dropped into my life, others left it or got quiet and most of them simply changed their picture about me since I turned my face into a different direction. I had my vision and allowed myself to live that vision.

Now, ask yourself! Is there any dream or vision inside of you? Is there something you would love to learn or to bring out into the world? Is there a talent within you or a skill you would love to share with the world? If you say yes, then you have a picture within you. Then you have the most important tool for manifesting your dream: Your imagination! A picture in your mind is as realistic as the chair you are sitting on. The difference is that the projection is not touchable yet. For the universe it makes no difference whether you see it with your mind’s eyes or your physical eyes. It exists as soon as you have it in your thoughts. When you see it with the eyes of your mind it is a clear reminder that this is something you definitely can make visible – otherwise you couldn’t imagine it.

You can imagine yourself however you wish! Whatever you imagine is possible to come true. Your imagination emerges from your Soul. And the Soul is wisdom itself. Not your neighbor, your kids, your spouse, your parents, society, your boss, not even your own thoughts know what you are able to manifest in releasing the power of your imagination.

When you imagine what you would love to change or to start, then feel this amazing power and joy coming up. Drift on it and let it happen! Keep it up and you will see that all of a sudden first solutions will show up and doors will open! From that moment on, you only have to walk on. Everything else will fall into place.

If you can imagine it – you can be do or have it!

In Love and Light!

Break out of the Circle!

Why are we keeping up our behaviour.

Ignorance – a helpful Characteristic!

Individuality

During my work out I heard the song Naughty Boy – Lalala. It reminded me to a chapter of my book The Principle of Duality – The Duality within different Characteristics. In this chapter I write amongst others about ignorance and other characteristics which have a negative touch. Hearing that word most people might think of a negative intolerant behaviour. Actually it simply is a characteristic which too often appears in a negative way.

Of course not being interested in anything that differs from what we do or think (or have thought and done all life long) is a very unhealthy way of being ignorant. It prevents us from learning and from widen our horizon. It keeps us from seeing things in a different perspective and therefore from getting ideas to solve problems. It also may keep us from new visions since we do not allow any inspiration. Inspiration is the gentle touch from outside that keeps our imagination in motion.

But there are always two ways of living Ignorance. As much as it can keep us from developing, it can also be a very helpful tool for our development. I often write about: Be, who you feel you want to be. Nobody can make you think or do anything unless you agree. Even Buddha said: Don’t believe anything you hear or see, not even what I tell you unless you identify yourself with it.

Ignorance is important. Because we don’t ignore enough we often tend to make ourselves a slave of other people’s expectation, of our surrounding, of society, of culture, of our history, and so much more. Because of not ignoring at the right time, people are being abused and treated like doormats. Or since they believe what others tell them who they are, they get self-doubted and depressed, because it doesn’t match their picture of themselves. But they ignore their own feeling rather than the opinion of others. This way not ignoring is also unhealthy!

Ignorance is important when used at the right time. When you start something new listen to other people’s advises, but ignore them as soon as they get in the way of your project. You are a profoundly loved being, ignore any comment that says anything different. You are a worthwhile and important part of this whole game, ignore anyone that says anything else.

As I always say: Only the individual itself knows and feels what’s right or wrong for themselves. Only the individual knows and feels where the next step has to be made – or if they want to pause for a while. Only the individual knows and feels its individuality. Ignore any statement that puts you in a bucket of generality!

Ignore anything that feels weakening. Only what feels strengthening is a match to who you are and to where you need to go.

Ignore everything that does not match YOU!

In Love and Light!

Happiness is Part of YourSelf

How other people treat me is their path…

… but how I react is mine! – Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

cropped-Eagle-Over-Mountains1

Last week I posted a picture quote with Wayne Dyer’s sayings. I thought I do my next post in relation to this quote.

I have to admit that I was raised very strictly and I was supposed to fulfill certain expectations. Also I was bullied when I was 9 until the age of 11. I did not understand why others were treating me that way and why who I am was not sufficient. Behind my wall I felt secure … but also lonely!

In  my mid 30s I got sick of feeling so isolated. When I slowly started my journey I tried to look at me, at the people around me and life itself with an observing distance. That way I detached myself from the identification of the opinion, approval, offending but also compliments of others. I understood that everything someone says is totally subjective and results from the way that person thinks, feels, likes, hates and experienced life before. Through my growing self-esteem and belief in myself I automatically did not take things personally anymore  – at least not everything. I definitely saw that right because of who I am I mirrored aspects of others which they did not like about themselves or were jealous about. Out of my missing self-esteem I used to believe that something was wrong with me when people tried to convince me in not very nice manners that what they do is the ultimate truth.

When I got aware that truth is something personal I was able to free myself from the fear of not meeting other people’s expectation. I did not tie myself to their approval anymore in order to be accepted and respected. But I did not do it in an angry or insurgent way. No, this insight made me spread so much peace inside of my. I realized that I have been always free of other people’s need to make me something. It is simply none of my business. And it is up to me whether I agree or disagree. Who shall keep me from feeling and thinking what I decide to think or feel? Everybody is entitled to live from the perception of his or her life. That makes them react in an equivalent way. What encounters them in the outside world are the button pushers of their inner bucket list.

I made peace with people however they treated me in the past because I truly know that it generated from their own state of mind. How can I ever take it personally when it is their world? And how shall they understand my world? We don’t need to understand other people’s world but the fact that every world is unique!

I learned to forgive! But I learned an even more important lesson: I learned that there is nothing to forgive. Everybody does what he or she thinks is right. The best we all can do is, to do what we think is right! And I am grateful for the people who challenged me the most because their affection on me made me grow and lead me to the point I am today! I had to walk though a dark valley before I understood. But once I did, the liberation and personal growth resulted in a firework of liberation!

Of course I am still a human being, that can be stinky, nasty, ironic, angry, sad….. and I don’t want to miss that at all ;-)! Life is a game. Let’s play it with all we are and let others take over their part in our life in order to help us reaching the next level.

So how others treat me, is their path! Now it is up to my state of mind and my world how I react … if I react at all! It is my path, what I make of happenings and encounters. The consequence of my reaction is the next development in my life. It is up to me – always!

In Love and Light!

Start with the Man in the Mirror!

Heal yourself and you heal the world!

I am responsible for my Actions!

How other people treat you ist their path

I would do it again!

In addition to my blog post from Monday I want to share a very fitting poem of my collection with you.

The following poem is part of my poem book Enjoy Life! The content is kind of my story – from darkness to light, from hiding to breaking free – from fear to conquering life! This poem also contains the basic lyrics of my song I would do it again!, which I performed at my book presentation of the German version of I’m Free

060

I would do it again!

I used to look back at my life and could see
Only struggles and people who were hurting me.
I gave my very best and tried hard to succeed,
Wanted some love and understanding in need.

But what did I find? Mostly trouble and pain.
I thought what I did was completely in vain.
Disappointment and sadness made me build up a wall
To find shelter behind and no sorrow at all.

But I only found darkness, felt lonely more and more.
Wasn’t able to find and walk out of the door.
The pressure got bigger, pushed me down to my knees.
When I thought I can’t make it, I felt this light breeze.

A hole in my wall where I could look through.
Saw light and heard laughter so warm and so true.
These walls I built up where no shelter at all.
Just kept me from growing, were a lie, held me small.

This hole in the wall – I finally got aware –
Was a window to my heart, let me find myself in there.
I had to go down to the most cruel, darkest ground,
To find my true beauty, my strength and inner peace beyond.

Today I look back at my life and can see
That nothing can hurt me unless I agree.
‘Cause whatever I went through made me who I am.
Thus I honestly tell you: I would do it again!

In Love and Light!

Love is the Opposite of Fear!

Love is the opposite of fear!

Nothing ever is in vain – Follow your challenges!

c448728989cb84358d8bb1cacd4813e2

Recently I read a post by a blogger I love to follow! His writings go straight to the heart and are in total alignment with what I write about in my books.  This blogger is Da Realz Talk and I would love you to take a look at his site. You will be impressed! His post inspired my new post.

What if things got different? What if I would not have met that person yesterday that kept me caught in a talk, which lead me to a hurry and as a result I was so lacking in concentration that I drove to fast and ended up with a ticket. Yes, what if? You will never know! Perhaps you would not have gotten a ticket, perhaps? Perhaps you would have been early enough to get hit by that careless truck driver a few miles further. Or countless other reality options could have shown up. You will never know!

How many people were angry to miss the subway on 9/11 to get to the WTC only to be grateful later? Retrospectively we often see what the reason was why things had to happen. But sometimes we don’t, because we simply got saved by what could have happened but never did. There are no coincidences in this perfectly organized Universe. If it is not in your plan IT WILL NOT HAPPEN! And the Universe always finds ways to bring your plan in the perfect order connected with countless other plans. Isn’t that amazing? And the great news: It will bring everything in a perfect order for you to live the life you wished for! You can force this by aligning with your plan which you feel as yearnings and dreams inside of you! Your dreams are reminders of your Soul!

Sometimes we ask ourselves why things don’t work out, why this or that we wish for so hard, does not show up. Mostly the problem is, that we don’t really believe what we say. We wish for something but inside we don’t believe that it will or can happen. For example: I wish so hard for a lovely house, but my financial situation doesn’t allow it. I wish so hard for a person on my side, but I won’t have a chance because of my age, all the lovely ones are in a relationship, I am not attractive enough… I wish so hard for a better job, but I am too afraid to quit this one.

It is not about words, it is not even about thinking positive! It is about what you are convinced inside. Thinking positive never works if it is not felt! Look at all the successful people! Look at the pioneers! They were convinced about what they were doing, about their product or about themselves. It is not what you were told as a child. Whatever anyone told you was their truth. Whatever you think about yourself will be true, and whatever you think about yourself is your decision. No one can make you think anything you are not willing. Your truth is only known and felt by you. No one can judge this but you! No one has your experiences but you! No one has your dreams, wishes and visions but you! No one lives your life but you! And no one has to bear the consequences but you! So do what you feel is right.

All that happened in the past was not in vain! All the indignities, worries, anxieties, pressure, frustration, losses were not in vain. They showed you in a clear way the opposite of what you really want. Every challenge made you develop or discover something inside of you, which you would not have discovered or developed without it. Every challenge pushed you in a direction you would not have gone without only to get closer to the point of breaking free! In order to live the life you always wished for you need to be prepared. You need to believe what you want to be or have. And therefore you have to face the challenges that make you ready for the life of your dreams.

I repeat: There are no coincidences in this perfectly organized Universe. Believe in this sentence and whatever encounters you take it as the next step into the direction of your personal fulfillment. You are so profoundly loved, that all will be done to make you finally see the power you carry within you, the shining being  and creator you are, and the important role you have chosen to be part of this big whole! You are loved, you are important and I am so happy that you are playing this game with us. Because you too affect others in order to develop. Role the dice and move on! Every step leads you towards your goal – no matter where you make that step!

Be grateful for all that happened. Otherwise you wouldn’t be who you are today! Great that you are you!

In Love and Light!

When you stop judging you liberate your heart!

IMG_5304

From early childhood on we are told what is right or wrong. We are punished or rewarded for our behavior. We observe how other people declare what they like or don’t like, what they think is beautiful or ugly, what they think is good or bad. As a little child we already learn to divide things in categories and we learn to judge. We learn it in a way that over the years we are convinced that everything has to be categorized and so we automatically judge whatever we see, hear and experience.

But when we judge we cut ourselves off from understanding the greater context. We stick to our opinion, which we are used to for years or even decades. When we judge, we lock ourselves out from a higher perspective and therefore from a wide range of possibilities lying in front of our feet. We keep ourselves from expanding.

We have come into this physical world to experience duality. We wanted to experience it, because we learn faster and more effective out of opposites. They are our tools to realize what we want and what we don’t want. Opposites make us feel what matches us, what supports us, what feels good or what hurts and causes struggle. We learn out of opposites if we want to keep up the path or change it. We learn what causes success and what we should not repeat. And every person experiences it differently. I love seafood. My husband doesn’t at all. My husband likes cooler temperatures, and I love the hottest summer days. Duality is wonderful. We learn how good a hot tub feels after a long walk on a cold winter day. It shows us the value of light, when the sun sets.

When we are out of a physical body we know, who we are and we are aware that we are surrounded by light, love and endless powerful creative energy. But it is not special because when you are surrounded by light, you cannot see your own light although you know about it. That’s why we come to earth with its physical laws. We want to experience darkness to rediscover our light. We want to experience sadness to rediscover that happiness already lies within us. We have to live in bondage to feel what freedom means. We want to experience hatred, indignity and ignorance in order to rediscover and cherish the love we are, we give and we get.

Nothing that happens, happens accidentally. Also we are not the born victims. But sometimes we don’t look at the challenge which is only sent to us for discovering the blessing behind – the opposite. And the more we turn away the harder the situation will be. That is not a bad thing, because the harder the situation the more impressive and sustainable the insight and the liberation. Whatever challenge is coming towards us, only rubs us because right this leads to the awareness of realizing the shining, divine being we actually are.

Try to stop judging, whoever wants to offend or annoy you. You never know what this person is going through or what is lying behind them. They don’t know it any better and they only act out of their current state of mind. Whatever breaks down in your life, try to look beyond it without judging. You will find out a lot sooner what new developments are growing out of it. Sometimes we have to (almost) lose it all, to realize what we have and never can lose.

When you stop judging you stop yourself from being stressed to always find an opinion. Try to see it more with the eyes of the soul. The soul doesn’t judge. It perceives and asks what’s in it for me. There is always something in everything for you – otherwise you would not have even noticed any discomfort.

In Love and Light!

How to live a successful life! Part 5

130706 - 130726 KALIFORNIEN mit Bruno,Rikki,Vanessa,Jason,Joe 331

This is the last part of the success series. In this part I want you to encourage to faithfully follow your dream no matter if you have to face some struggles on the way, no matter if you already know how the whole plan, no matter how long it might take, and no matter whether someone did it before or not.

Follow YOUR dream!
Live is in a constant move even when we are standing still. The circumstances in our lives are moving which means that we are pushed to move. Therefore standing still is impossible. Don’t wait till you are pushed to be somewhere or someone you don’t want to be only because you are not willing to create your own footsteps. Living other people’s dreams has never brought success but frustration, depression and diseases. It weakens you since it is not your dream and not your potential and therefore nothing you could give from yourSelf. And as Wayne Dyer says: You can’t give away what you don’t have! To be pushed in a direction you don’t feel comfortable with shows you merciless that it won’t work since it is not your dream and therefore not meant for you to be.

Take the first step, have faith in yourSelf, keep up a happy knowing that your dreams are supposed to come true since they have grown out of you, watch the first signs of unfolding, and take the next step in faith again. Following your dreams show your gratitude for what you were provided with to go through this life in your own certain way. If you don’t do it, no one does it!
Believe in you!

Believe in your dreams,
Believe your inner voice.
Believe that you always
Will have your own choice.

Believe in your strength,
Believe you’re unique.
Believe that your power
Is enough to succeed.

Just believe in yourself
Only half as I do
And I give you my promise –
It’s all coming true!

– Erika Kind

Summary
Look back in your own life, what would you say was your biggest success? It was the times when you expanded yourSelf into the outside world.

You will never ever lose your path as long as you believe in you, be authentic, love what you do, have an open mind and follow your dreams steadfastly. Your dreams are part of your life’s purpose. Living your purpose creates your heaven on earth. Never forget the greatest power you always have at hands: the divine energy, that you are, called love! Whatever you do with love in your heart will make everything you do a gift to the world.

Success is only a wonderful symptom that occurs out of your authentic way of living in love – flowing through all of your actions.

In Love and Light!

See the previous chapter Part 4 Don’t doubt but open up your mind!

I follow my inner call!

I live my life according to my inner call

I live in the Here and Now!

I live in the Here and Now

The path is the goal!

The path to my goal is the ultimate goal

I go with the flow…

I go with the flow and accept the circumstances

How to live a successful life! Part 2

IMG_0054

In Part 1 I was talking about the belief on yourSelf. Today I want to show you the importance of being authentic.

Authenticity
Success is not to simply get approval and a shining figurine for your show case.
It is to act and unfold your life from a place in your heart, where the potential and power of yourSelf has been lying since you were born into this world. As soon as you act out of the nature of your being, you will be lavished with approval, honoring and compliments. The difference is that you don’t necessarily need it anymore since your success has already been felt in simply doing what you are. When you do what you are, you are authentic. Authenticity radiates strength. And this true strength is what people like. Strength lets others feel comfortable in your presence. They want to be with you, and want to be embraced by the radiation of your positive and uplifting energy. When you are authentic, real, and pure, then you are transparent. People will believe you and get inspired to live their own dreams, and get successful in leading a fulfilled life in alignment with who they really are.

If you want to be respected, you need to respect who you are in the first place. Accept yourSelf with everything you are today. Show empathy for yourSelf. Be tolerant with yourSelf. Just love yourSelf the way you are. Today you are the best you ever with everything that lies inside of you. All your feelings, experiences, desires, knowledge, behaviors have created this unique you, who you are. There is no one like you in the whole world and that makes you so special. Be proud of who you are. Cherish who you are. In loving yourSelf and the resulting authenticity you give others the permission to do the same. In how you live your life you are always an example to others. The more authentic you are the more others feel liberation in being fearlessly authentic as well.

Say this affirmation and pass it on:
I am a shining being of God and I am here to bring light into the world.

Next week I am going to write about: Love, what you do!

I’m Free – German

ImFree_Cover Vorderseite

I found out that there are lots of German speaking bloggers on WordPress. Therefore I wanted to introduce you to my German book I’m Free. If you like my posts, you will love I’m Free – no matter which version!

I wrote the books in order to show others that it is possible to change life for the better. I was in a place of self-doubt, fear, frustration, disappointment, desperation and the longer the more, I felt misunderstood from the world. But I was able to turn around the rudder and today I am happy and my zest for life is inexhaustible.

It is possible to change your perspective, to change your attitude, to change your thought patterns and belief system, and as a result to transform your whole life. We always have the choice on what we turn our attention to. There is a variety of choices of what you can find in one single situation. But we are used to focus on the things we don’t like, and feel frustrated about their repetition. We believe that life is a fight. We even don’t consider that we might have a choice. But as soon as you find out that what you find in life is the result of what you turned your attention to in first place, is the beginning of a huge transformation process. As soon as you start to focus on what you want your life will turn out to the life you always yearned for!

In Love and Light!

A list of Gratitude

IMG_9669

One of my chapters in my book “I’m Free” is about Gratitude. I found out what an enormous powerful, transforming effect gratitude has. It is one of the easiest basics to change your life into a direction of love, happiness, contentment and success.

A while ago my best friend and I used to share a thank-you-list once a week. I was always looking forward to those Friday mornings. No matter what happened in my life, while doing that list it was like connecting to a source of light. Even during the week, when something special or delightful happened, I already put it in my Friday list. I got much more aware of the many little gifts life sent to me. Accordingly I turned my attention automatically to the nice things in life and developed happiness as a basic condition since I saw by how much beauty I have always been surrounded. It is like the phrase in the song “Amazing Grace”: Was blind, but now I see!”

The great things about a thank-you-list are that you turn your attention to the brighter side of your life. You will get aware how much beautiful things your life actually contains. The tougher side will lose priority. You disconnect with the energy of your problems and will find solutions or some problems simply dissolve since you no longer care that much.

I encourage you to do a list of gratitude and – if possible – share this list with someone who also needs some uplift and a different perspective in life. It is OK when you do it for yourself, but through sharing you get more motivated to find what great things exist in your life. Writing this list will lift you up in a higher energy level.

You don’t need to do a whole list. You can start with a single subject that really matters to you. You can also start with the things that seem obviously normal, like being thankful for having the sun dawning every morning or having your dog being excited when it meets you, or whatever. I tell you, once you have started you can’t help it but to dig deeper and find more and more blessings in your life you probably took for granted before.

If you like the idea of doing a list of gratitude once a week you could post it and share it with your followers. You will inspire them to do the same and therefore you will support them to brighten up their day. Let’s spread light!

Here I go with my list:

I am thankful:

  • For my three children and the joy and difference they have brought into my life.
  • That each one of them has shown me a different world I have learned of.
  • For all they challenged me with to be induced to discover myself in a new way.
  • For my husband that supports me all the time.
  • For all the struggles we managed and have come over in order to invent our relationship new.
  • For my friends, their trust in me and the trust I experience.
  • For the trust of all the people who read my books and come into my practice.
  • For the possibility to share this list with so many people today.
  • For the list itself, since it was an important part of the process to change my life for the better.
  • For the love I may give.
  • For the love and blessings I experience every day.
  • For I have a home and a beautiful garden.
  • For it is summer – my favorite season – and my garden is blooming.
  • For the knowing that I myself changed my life from dark to light, only by changing the way I looked at it.
  • For my guinea pigs and my tortoise.
  • For the beautiful area I live in.
  • For doing what I love to do – writing and talking about the powerful creator we are.
  • For all the tears I shed and every hurt, since it caused me to change something in order to cherish the change even more today.
  • That I am the master of my life.
  • That it is up to me how I want to experience what happens in my life.
  • For everything that happens (nice or sad) in my life, since everything is a step in my personal evolution.
  • That everything that happens in my life is sent with love in order to help myself evolving.
  • That everything that happens is in perfect order and in a perfect context.
  • That everything happens for a reason and never accidentally in order to lead me to the next step of self-development.
  • That life simply happens and gives us the opportunity to build something new of it.
  • That I can be whoever I want to be!
  • That I am here on earth to rediscover myself and to experience who I am.
  • That my life has changed from pressure and fight to an exciting adventure.

In Love and Light!

Your truth is always true!

There is no general truth - perceiving life

You are genuinely loved!

That you are a genuinely loved creature

I create my reality!

I create my reality in order to manifest my visions

I am aware of my life!

I walk through life with open eyes and ears

15 Principles of a Liberated Self

Every day I am thankful for all that I have

Our Challenges are Always a Seed of Personal Growth!

Me, after I made it through one point on my bucket list: The Jurrassik Ride (freefall in the end)We are unique beings, with a unique history, unique skills and abilities, unique in liking or disliking things, unique in the subjects, targets and several destinations we have chosen for this lifetime – we are a sum of unique aspects which make us so individual. This individuality is the cause of our world view. It is responsible of what we think of life, our surroundings, the people around us and of course of ourselves. Whatever we heard, experienced, touched, encountered made us the person we are today.

The sum of all of this makes us interpret everything in the way we look at it. Our perception is subjective all the time. What we call truth today is only an image of the current state of our mind. Therefore we can change it, and what we can change cannot be the truth. Truth is something irrevocable. As soon as we can change something it is not the truth.

Think back 30 years, thing back 20 years, think back 5 weeks! Some attitudes you had there and then might be totally different than today. You changed your perception – which way ever – and have found something different within the same world. Isn’t that cool? We have it in our hands to change the way we look at things. It is a personal decision and no one can make us believing anything unless we agree. That way we find further perspectives and expand our horizon. The less you are focused on a specific subject the more you will find in the whole situation. It depends on how you look at it.

Life happens! Most occurrences are not in our hands but affect our life more or less. Nothing just happens in order to punish us. Nothing happens only out of a mood of a higher force to play around with our feelings. Everything that happens shows us something within us. The way and intensity we reflect on something or someone produces happiness, tensions, joy, anger, motivation, frustration… The same event can impact different people in totally different ways. A rainy day in summer can be annoying for one person, who wanted to make a barbecue but be a blessing for the farmer that had been waiting impatiently for it. The same event, but two different perceptions. It depends on our current situation, how we think about it, what we expect or fear.

Everything we don’t like and is changeable we shall change. In changing something we go into our potential and activate or develop abilities. Sometimes they seem new to us, sometimes we improve them. When you don’t like your job, you can change it. Perhaps it is not easy and needs a lot of courage to quit, apply, get used to new rules and people. But it gives you the opportunity to let you grow.

When we cannot change anything we need to accept it and integrate it in our lives. Also here we will be able to improve or discover aspects or our potential. When my father died unexpectedly at the age of 65 two years ago, (regardless of the loss itself) I had to face enormous changes. It was a big shock. I worried about my mother and tried to be as strong as possible for her. All of a sudden my mom was sitting in a big house, being by herself for the first time in her life. We had a company to take care of, which was not prepared at all for such a case. We had to get used to his financial connections and accounts, insurance companies and find out about how things sticked together, find all the papers we needed and were always insecure to not overlook something important. It was horrible. But I could not change it.

I had to face the facts that appeared or I would have got lost. I was calm and went on step by step. I knew it wouldn’t help anyone to lose my mind and panic around. I organized the whole funeral by myself in no time. And my mom could deal with other things. I found out that I was able to keep a clear and cool mind, when it was necessary and that I can make it through situations I imagined as the worst of the worst cases. But I did it. And I am stronger than before with a loving memory to my father.

As I said before: Life happens! It is not in our hands what life throws towards our feet, but it is always in our hands how we deal with it. It is your decision how you look at a situation and what you make out of it. You can always make something out of everything. Whatever rubs you in some way is a signal that there is something in it for you – or you wouldn’t care. So don’t turn away but look at it. Ask what’s in there for you and believe that you will walk out of it, stronger and wiser than before. The more open you move forward the softer and faster you will proceed.

In knowing that there is no punishment but only another opportunity of personal evolution will let you no longer turn around when challenges are showing up. Never forget: Life is for living!

In Love and Light!

Fear does not exist!

Fear is worrying now about something in the future
