Sometimes life takes unexpected turns

Then it throws you a sign, invisible to others
And you know that your thoughts were anything but true

Don’t Forget the Rooms of Power in Times of Struggle!

While I’m still deleting and revising older posts, from time to time, I came across this one. It is a simple one of my very early blogging days. But right that made me think about how many times I have fallen into this trap since I wrote it. Not only does it apply to how I handle my little world, but also to the difficulties the whole world has been facing for the past few years. Starting with climate change, to a pandemic, to the war in Ukraine. All this affects everyone in one way or another. But we must not lose ourselves in the crisis we are facing. Only by keeping in mind how many blessings we still are granted, do we gain the strength to make it through and bring about the change that this world so desperately needs.

Why?

Why is it that once my life is under control, something outside happens that affects it again? Why appear the same problems over and over again although, I thought I got it? Why is there so much suffering and injustice in this world? Why can’t we see that we are destroying this planet and are about to extinguish our own species? Why???

The Hard Way To Unconditionality

About ten days ago, I had a wonderful conversation about unconditional love with Mark of HealingFromWithin. I invite you to read his post about An Unconditional Dilemma. Often we meet people to whom we want to give ourselves completely. They may be in a bad place, desperate, lost, beaten by life. For some reason, there is a sudden connection, a strong attraction, and a deep need to help them heal their soul. Sometimes the encounters happen in such a magical way that you would give a movie a bad rating for being too unrealistic. However, from the first moment on, everything indicates that there must be a higher purpose behind it.

Sometimes Not-Understanding Takes You Further

AzQuotes.com

Don’t we all have times when many things go through our minds and hearts at once? So many different thoughts which escape the moment they seem within reach. At the same time, it’s obvious that everything has a common denominator. It can be frustrating and feels like you’re just going in circles with no way out. And while you think you have all your problems together now, to finally put everything in order or sort it out, life adds something else to confuse you.

One Insight at a Time

BrainyQuote.com

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

When A Moment Completes The Picture

Everybody has their backpacks to carry. Some people are unpacking freely, every stumble, fall, burden, or point on their agenda while others don’t feel the need to bless the world with the details of their private lives. However, only because someone doesn’t invite the world into their living rooms doesn’t mean their backpack is empty. Not at all!

Love is patient, Love is kind…

love-timeline-cover-17

What is love? How can it be defined? I don’t know if we ever get its whole meaning or even an idea of it. But the 1 Corinthians, chapter 13 provides a profound insight into what love can be and how we recognize if it is love we feel or only an aspect of it. It gives a direction if we act out of love and if we live in a love that is life’s elixir and our origin. Love is all we really need. That’s why we do so much in order to receive love. We make sacrifices, fight, murder, die. Love is the basic need we all have in common. If we have love there is no need to compensate it with anything in the world. The real true pure of love makes every miracle possible. Then we have found the master-key to life. Read more ›

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

You’ve Got Me All Wrong 8 – The Purpose Of Your Life Is To Re-Create Yourself

UnbenanntA few weeks ago I picked up one of Walsch’s books and began to read the first pages. After I read the short list of the 25 core messages to explain the main message (in the title) I stopped reading. It was so inspiring and I my mind started spinning. Before I am reading on I want to share the flow of pictures and thoughts of some of those core messages which immediately filled me. Most of those core messages won’t appear new since we are talking about them over and over again. We all share them with our own words.

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

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

WHY Do We Fear To Succeed?

_20180611_210034.jpg

Before my break, I wrote about being entitled to be selfish and to put things at rest when life developed and changed. Last week I wrote how feelings of guilt can make a situation more complicated than necessary for everybody. Since I did not have much time to write a post on the weekend I dug into my archive and found this one which I wrote more than 2 years ago. When I read through it I was amazed, how perfectly it combines both topics and adds even more perspectives on both.

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 ›

The Magic of a Changed Perspective!

ieUMG0syQ1KLFiAQKSxe_Fresh_Life_Connection.png

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

Insights – Messages Of The Soul

Lately, I was talking a lot with my friends in posts, comments, and replies about the effect of insights and how they come up. What is an insight actually?

It makes us see a detail which we might have overlooked before but which was essential to dissolve a misunderstanding or a misinterpretation.  Read more ›

Recently, Colin of MeAndRay.com shared a wonderful link with me. It is a Ted Talk with the conductor Benjamin Zander. He is talking about the transformative power of classical music. No, this won’t become a post about classical music. What went so deep were Zander’s profound insights about life and beyond which he incorporated in his talk.“I will never say anything that couldn’t stand as the last thing I ever say.” This was the vow of a woman who survived Auschwitz. Zander told the story of that woman at the end of his talk. It is the inspiration for this post. I will try keeping this post shorter than my usual Monday posts because I want you to listen to that talk. Something wonderful will happen inside of you. Read more ›

Open Your Arms… You Deserve The Best!

We all experience what we allow ourselves to experience. We only see what we look at. Every day more things happen around us than we notice. And this is ok because we cannot absorb all that happens in all its varieties. That’s why we only see things from the state of consciousness we are at that moment. That is all it needs. Because everybody will find exactly what’s meant for them at that very moment. Isn’t it just amazing to think that even one single situation holds every little aspect for everyone who encounters it in its individual way? I am still mesmerized by that thought.  Read more ›

The Magical Effect Of Changed Thoughts!

When you are used to putting your glass of water at the same spot on your dinner table you can reach out blindly and will definitely grab it time and time again. You don’t even need to think about it anymore. It has become a habit and reflex. You may not even be aware of the fact that it is a habit and soon it appears a fact that your glass of water is found at that same place. It has always been that way and there is no consideration that it could or should be changed. Read more ›

When Demons Leave!

When I posted a quote about forgiving two weeks ago there was a suggestion to write a post about it because the subject is really big! I knew I already had posted about it. Since I am pretty consumed by life at the moment, I thought why not repost one? It also makes a nice sequel to last week’s Monday post:

Were you ever in a great and happy mood and then out of the blue you were flushed by feelings that caused a deep sadness? And you don’t even know why? That happened to me last Friday. We had great weather, I was happy and cheerful, and all of a sudden I had a song in mind that I did not hear for years. I love that song a lot but while I started singing it heavy desperation kicked in and I didn’t know why.

Don’t Let Their Discontentment Control Your Life!

As you may know, some weeks ago I translated for two English mediums at their sessions. It was insightful in many ways. I learned so much and got confirmed in many things I was already convinced about. One case touched me a lot. There was a woman who was involved in a bad accident some time ago. She was close to death but survived. The accident caused massive brain injuries and she still suffers from a limited way of understanding and comprehending. She is slower in thinking and moving, and the left side of her face is still a bit paralyzed. But she has come such a long way due to her strong willpower and she is still progressing. She even started an education on the internet in order to step back into life actively. Now what hurts her so much is that her husband has turned away from her. He is only complaining and blaming her for each and every little thing. She cannot do anything right and gets screamed at all the time. She desperately tries everything to be loved by him the way he did before the accident happened.

Why Feeling Lonely?

There can be times in life when we feel like aliens. Like there is no one on this planet who cares for us or who is interested in who we are.

What can be the reason – or the reasons?

It Is Not The Religion – It Is The Interpretation!

Some time ago, I shared a video of the Dalai Lama on Facebook. That video felt like a perfect follow-up to my post We Need To Heal The Cause – Not The Symptoms! The Dalai Lama talked about religion and terrorism. He stated what burns in all the hearts of faithful people. It is not religion that makes terrorists. It is the fanatic idea of the power that misuses religion for terroristic acts.

Dalai Lama: Religious violence: “Once you are involved in bloodshed you are no longer a genuine practitioner of Islam”.

You – The Candle In The Dark

I wrote this post while sitting on my patio with my laptop. I love working outside, enjoying the sounds of nature around me, smelling the scent of the coming fall, and feeling the warmth of the last warm days. I wouldn’t mind if it stayed like this until next spring…. haha. We had some very hot times this summer and I loved it. I mind the cold rather than the heat. But during the last few days when it got really cool in the mornings and evenings, I noticed something about me. I enjoyed the chilly feeling on my skin in some way. It made me think of taking a hot bath or cuddling in some cozy clothes again.

What I enjoy about it is the moment when getting from the cold into the warmth. That cozy moment when cuddling into a warm blanket. When you get inside and a cup of coffee or tea is waiting for you. I noticed that temperatures of 12 °C (55 °F) in the morning already give me chills after the 30 °C (90 °F) only a week before. During winter we will get down to freezing temperatures and 12 °C will appear very warm again. Funny, how subjective we experience this.

It all made me think of the duality we live in and from which we learn. How we notice the warmth so much more when it is getting cold and how relatively cold and warm can be. When we never lost something we might not be able to treasure all that we still have. Because when we had it all and lost it we will be so much more aware and thankful for all the new things that come towards us again. Nobody wants to live in darkness, most of all not the ones who experienced it. But aren’t the ones who did, those who know the real value of the light? Aren’t the ones who got ill the ones who know how precious health is? Aren’t the ones who got heavily tested and challenged by life the ones who are most compassionate?

The contrast makes us understanding, appreciative, thankful, wiser, and stronger. Through contrast, we learn what we want and what we don’t want (anymore). We need to experience both sides in order to understand both. Again, we need to feel the warmth and the cold in order to understand what warm and cold actually mean. And now there is something else: Even if I learned for myself about warm and cold somebody else can experience it completely differently.

The physical world makes it possible that everyone can experience themselves within the duality in their personal and unique way. This is amazing in many ways. First, there is room for each and every experience and second, there is not only one single truth regarding perceiving life. We are bringing our own light down here. We are coming from a place of light. It is a shining place. But when everything is so light, how can we recognize our own light? That is why we come down here. The seasons, day and night are a visible analogy to the changes we are going through. When it is getting dark outside we are switching on the lights or light candles. WE MAKE LIGHT – because we want/need to see! When we find ourselves surrounded by darkness figuratively the moment will come when we recognize our light again. Those are the enlightening moments. Each of those moments makes us remember our own light again.

Contrast is what we chose in order to evolve and to have the moments of awareness which are fueling us with more power and joy than any physical possession or achievement ever could. The gift of this physical life is the gift of awareness. We get chances and choices. It is up to us what to choose. We often know in advance that one choice may cause us to cross a dark valley before we are reaching the sunny side again. We might not take that choice and stay on that side of the valley. But sometimes we know exactly what is waiting behind the valley and we risk the journey. Once we have reached the other side we are not only treasuring that sun even more but we are also so much stronger. The contentment that we made and the experiences we gained on our journey are giving this new place that we chose an even deeper meaning!

There are dark episodes in our lives. But don’t be afraid of the dark. It is only temporary. This is not your real home just a place to discover yourself. You are coming from light and you are light. Each time you see the sun dawning again will remind you. You are the candle in your own night. This light is always with you. You cannot lose it because you cannot lose who you are. Let yourself shine. It not only connects you stronger to your origin but it also helps others to find their lights again.

In Love and Light

The Challenge of Challenging People!


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

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

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

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

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

In Love and Light

Think Positive! 😜

God, how I cannot stand to hear that when I am in the middle of difficult circumstances or situations. Then my ego slips into its diva part: “You can talk easily because you are not in that situation. You have no idea how that really feels.” The tricky thing is that my ego cannot convince me anymore. I simply have no excuses. I know exactly that when I dig into the mud I will only find more mud. But sometimes mud is what I need…

The Potential Of A Miracle Lies In You!

Lately, I came across several posts talking about miracles and coincidences or some conversations turned out to be about them. I love this matter. I also made it the topic of my latest manuscript (which still is waiting in line for being translated and published in English). But what actually is a miracle? Most of us would say: It is an unexpected and sudden change of circumstances for the better. Do you agree? But are they really unexpected?

The Healing Power Within!

This is a story that moves me deeply not only because it happened in my closest circle of the family but most of all because it shows that we have powers within us that are greater than our bodies could ever be. Actually, those powers are the force to strengthen and heal the body. Yes, we can heal through the power of our spirits which is the power of love!

The Line From Communicating To Justifying

The past two weeks were most inspiring regarding this topic. I encountered several examples both in my private and in my work life in many ways.

There is a natural need within us that we want to be understood. We want to feel accepted for who we are and that means that people need to be able to see who we are. Oh, how can we be misunderstood when we are doing something out of a reflex due to our experiences of our past? As we ourselves do, others look out of their own eyes too with their own experiences in their mind storage. What they see, they put in relation to their own mindset. If a particular person means a lot to us or they play an important role in our lives, of course, we should let them know in order that misunderstandings cannot build a wall. If there is one misunderstanding that is not clarified many others can accumulate until one day that wall separates both totally.

The Chain of Light

Last week I wrote about love as so much more than only a feeling. I was most inspired by the Charity point and my thoughts went with a particular aspect of that love that connects us and everything in a magical yet natural way. This connection has much more meaning than we might think and we often underestimate the advantage, the obligations, and the responsibility that comes with the decision of being part of this global community.

Love – More Than Just A Feeling!

The first thing when we hear the word Love may be this most fulfilling relationship between two people, feeling butterflies, romance, holding hands, kissing, thinking about creating a life together and perhaps doing it, being there for each other no matter what, one mind, one heart, one soul… To me, this is still the highest level of love we can experience when two people are giving their all for each other. But there is so much more about love.

When I started writing this post I received a picture of a pyramid. We started at the peak with the “lovebirds” but that is not the base of what love is. There is something very very big far beneath which gives those lovebirds the necessary boost to fly. Let’s go down to the foundation in 5 more steps. For a better understanding: When I describe love in different relationships I am talking about the ideal/common way. I try to keep it short in order to not exceed your patience with reading. But I would love to write more about the different subjects if you would like me to.

WHY Do We Fear To Succeed?

How important, inspiring, insightful, and so valuable the conversations to a post are was proved again through my Monday post of last week. I wrote about The Fear to SucceedThe interaction which followed made me look even deeper into the subject and lead me to a sequel of that topic.

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 criticized 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!

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 have 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.

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!

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 seriously! 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.

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

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

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

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

In Love and Light

There is more than you might see!

Most of you know that I had the exciting opportunity to be at the Blogger Bash 2016 in London last weekend. But due to the fact that I lost a whole weekend and had some stressful days before I wasn’t able to write a new Monday Post. I decided to pick a fitting one from March 2015 and modified it a bit.
We are more than what we experience and in order to recognize and 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.

The Magic of a Changed Perspective!

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

So Excited!!!

When have you been excited the last time? Did something turn out the way you wished for? Did you meet lovely people? Did you succeed in something you worked for hard? Did things you were waiting and longing for finally come true? How did it feel? Weren’t you filled with adrenaline? Weren’t you filled with a feeling of immense power? There was happiness, gratitude, and contentment in abundance, right? You saw that in the end things are well. You felt what happiness is about, what joy is about, and perhaps even what life is about. But most of all you felt so very deep in the most positive way. And yes, that is what life is about.

Awakening – The Power Of Saying No!

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

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

Choices – Fate- Destiny

Did you ever watch the movie Matrix Reloaded? I watched it twice. But I did not get the meaning both times. Lately, it came up on television again. Next to talking to my son, him explaining to me some things about our world history (he is amazing at that), checking my phone for some comments, and other things around, I was not very focused on the movie… until Neo met the oracle.

Is That What YOU Want?

Flow………… take a deep breath………… flow…………… whatever you have in mind please let it flow for a moment. Just flow. If you are not able to do that then stop reading and get back later. Take a break and breath …………

Sometimes we are caught between appointments, obligations, and routines. We simply function. We don’t even think about why we are doing what we do, we just do it. OK, at times it is better not to think about some things we need to do or we would freak out… lol!!! But it is more this unconscious and stereotypical acting in order to simply get everything done.  I don’t say skip things – sometimes simply everything accumulates. But if you can skip things!

With God All Things Are Possible!

Control is an Illusion!

Life happens while we are making other plans.

I like this quote a lot. We are making plans for our nearer or further future, scheduling our days and then things happen which can change everything in an instant. The weather changes, someone gets sick, the job gets lost, accidents happen, or even more life-impacting things.  We have no control over what happens around us. This is something we can be scared of or something that can even give us relief because we can let go of the pressure to keep everything under control.

The Magic Glasses Of Love!

Shine!

Walked through the storm

Walked through the night

Through many valleys

In search of light

 

Then finally this light broke through

The path so clear to see

Looked for the source to hold on to

And realized it shone from me

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 losing 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.

Liberation

 

So dark and so lonely

My heart was for years

Ruled by my self-doubts

Controlled by my fears

For far too long

I thought there must be

A change in the world

or a savior for me

But nothing did happen

No one understood

No one did care

If only I could…

Being who I am

Or who I wanna be

Not caring if others

Did understand me

All of a sudden

I thought: Why not I?

No one can judge me

Cause no one is I

I started to rise

Started living my dream

Not afraid anymore

That someone could be mean

I respect and I love me –

The person I am

Enabled me greatly

To love everyone

The smile that I’m wearing

Is no fake anymore

It shines from my heart

As the light of my core

Today I am content

No more fears, I am free

With me, the world changed

And the savior has been me!

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 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 constant motion 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 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 mercilessly 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
Looking back on your own life, what would you say was your biggest success? It was the time when you expanded yourSelf into the outside world.

You will never ever lose your path as long as you believe in yourself, 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 hand: 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

Last year during the Summer break I wrote a series called How to live a successful life. I am sure that 98 percent of you don’t know about it. Therefore I want to reblog the series for the following 5 Mondays. Here is an introduction with 5 successful inspirations I wrote for a magazine last year. It was the inspiration to do the series:

She Let Go… She Embraced… She Is Back…

… stronger than ever before!

I apologize for the short notice of the 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 by 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!!!

Love is the Cause, the Key, and the Result!

Last week I experienced, received, and felt so much love which makes me write about love again. I am most grateful for what we all experience here with each other. It is a constant giving and receiving. We all show an example that differences are not a reason to separate but to unite.

I don’t know how you feel about it. But often times I am so filled with love and gratitude that I don’t know where to put it. Sometimes I know where it comes from and sometimes I don’t.

Self-Love: The Art Of Accepting Compliments!

Suffering Part 2 – What’s the Use?

Last week I posted Suffering Part 1 – The Torture In Our Head . I wrote that this kind of suffering has its origin in the way we think, that we interpret things in our own way, and hurt ourselves with truths which only exist in our heads. I also talked about the magic tool of getting still, listening to the wisdom of our hearts, and then align our thoughts with this inner knowing.

Actually as children we were used to listen to our hearts first and our thoughts did not really play an important role in that game. We perceived without judging anything and stored it in our mind. But when time went on we were taught HOW we had to perceive things, persons, happenings, ourselves, our life, our future. We were taught to be this or that, behave this or that way, what is good or bad, and even what we prefer or dislike! But would have been within us already. Read more ›

Insight with the help of a song!

I did not plan to post this song but it just fell into my lap this morning. It made me think a lot. It is a serious song and we just laughed and danced to it without noticing the deeper meaning. Now when I read the lyrics I notice how thoughtless this was. I am thinking further. How much do we just do without thinking any further? How often do we hurt people unconsciously and unwittingly only because we don’t think a little over the edge of our plate? We think our life is what counts, our perspective is what counts, and life will just flow on for us the way we are used to. Perhaps we are not aware of it, but that doesn’t matter. Then all of a sudden something starts to wither away because we only painted one side of the house. We do not understand because we still only think from our own point of view. In our desperation, we try to save it by painting the same wall over and over again – how ignorant. And then – when it might be too late – we finally think about walking around the house and seeing clearly. Looking back we are always smarter. We cannot rewind time but we can make it better from now on! That is everything we want but also everything we can offer.

Buffalo Soldier – Bob Marley

Buffalo soldier, dreadlock rasta:
There was a buffalo soldier in the heart of america,
Stolen from africa, brought to america,
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival.

I mean it, when I analyze the stench –
To me it makes a lot of sense:
How the dreadlock rasta was the buffalo soldier,
And he was taken from africa, brought to america,
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival.

Said he was a buffalo soldier, dreadlock rasta –
Buffalo soldier in the heart of america.

If you know your history,
Then you would know where you coming from,
Then you wouldn’t have to ask me,
Who the ‘eck do I think I am.

I’m just a buffalo soldier in the heart of america,
Stolen from africa, brought to america,
Said he was fighting on arrival, fighting for survival;
Said he was a buffalo soldier win the war for america.

Said he was a buffalo soldier win the war for america;
Buffalo soldier, dreadlock rasta,
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival;
Driven from the mainland to the heart of the caribbean.

Today we celebrated the Holy Communion of my husband’s niece. We went to church in the morning and then had a big dinner at a restaurant. It was 3:30 pm when we came home. We also had the most beautiful weather and we decided to do more work in the garden. But that’s not what I want to tell you.

My Magic Hill

20150408_135540_resized

My magic place

This is the place where I sit still,
Where I find peace and time to heal.

This is the place that made me find
Important answers when I was blind.

This is the place that makes me hope
to get a second chance to cope.

This is the place of growth and change
Which came down like an avalanche.

Is it important what has been?
Is it important what’s not yet seen?

No explanations more of need.
I see so clearly what I did.

Now I stand tall and feel the grace
While tears of joy run down my face.

With love in my heart, I look at the scene
And say goodbye to the one I’ve been.

In Love and Light!

Relaxing in the Woods

I just came home after I spent an hour in the woods. I went to a beautiful place in 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 was around. I started meditating and felt such 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.

I Am…!

I recently posted a quote titled Who Am I? It said: Realizing who you are, does not mean finding out who you are!

We mostly notice that at times we are feeling something in certain situations which is not for our benefit. That can be anger, jealousy, greed, frustration, or resistance. And we don’t even know why we feel it. It is coming up like a reflex when a certain person calls or when we are confronted with repeating issues or happenings. Then these emotions show up and take over instantly and we feel helpless doing anything against them. But we know exactly that we don’t want it, that it is in our way, and that it would make our life so much easier without them. But how to get there?

Feelings and Emotions – Make them fit!

Did you ever think about if there is a difference between feelings and emotions? Feeling here is meant as a mental note as a physical perception. Feelings like emotions are affecting our actions in the end. Both are expressions from within.

Once I Wished for a Magic Wand…

Once I wished for a magic wand…
when I was looking at my broken dreams and fixing my wounded heart.
when I looked at myself as the greatest failure.
when I cried about my helplessness.
when I wished to change what caused sadness and pain by my own actions.
when I wanted to see people as they are in order to not be disappointed by them later.

Feelings of Guilt – My Confession!

During the past 5 to 6 years I learned a lot about letting go, making peace with the past, and becoming a very tolerant person. But when I read Amanda’s post yesterday I noticed that there is still something lying deep inside that makes me feel guilty. I planned to prepare a post about “Feelings of Guilt” for next Monday. But after what happened last night I have to do it here and now! You will understand right away.

Life isn’t about controlling but about unfolding!

During the past weeks, I often posted, read, and experienced what a blessing and relief it is to stop controlling life. Some things we can but some things just happen. The most beautiful things in life only unfold when we stop forcing and controlling out of fear it wouldn’t turn out the way we want or out of fear we could lose something. But that’s not true. Things that are about to unfold are meant to unfold. But in believing, we might keep control over the unfolding and the way how things are supposed to unfold we simply scrunch the fragile flower that just started to open up.

Follow your dreams

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

We touched on one topic that is most important to me. Because it is one with which many of us are fighting during our lifetimes. 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!

There is more than you might see!

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

Difference is not meant to separate but to unite!

During the past weeks I read more and more posts and comments in which people write about their struggles with feeling different. Whatever different means. That can be because of a certain look,  body shape, a medical condition, a point of view, the way they live, mental issues, their visions, … There is so much we can call difference. Read more ›

Real Love is a Condition not an Emotion!

When I start writing my weekly post I can’t do it as long as I am not in a state of love. This state of love enables me to dig deep inside myself and expand into my inner cores. When I reach that place a feeling surrounds me that I am not able to describe but I try: It is a warmth and an all-embracing comfort that emerges, fills, and surrounds my whole being. It is a feeling of happiness and commitment. When I am feeling it I am so full of love that I am almost bursting. Every time I am in this state it is like an excursion to another world – a world of lightness, of being carried with strong invisible arms, a world in which we all are not only accepted for what we are and how we play our roles in life but even cherished for it. Yes, this state in which I dive in when I am writing is what I identify as divine love. It doesn’t judge but perceives. It doesn’t mourn about what was once but thanks for it. It doesn’t call for justice since there is an interaction that teaches us and keeps us in motion and development. It is a state of pure consciousness and a simple being.

I planned to write about something totally different. When I sat down and closed the door to my room (which says to everyone: Please, do not disturb!) I first went to this place of love in order to feel into the story which I wanted to write about. But – as often – it turns out differently. I love to write because I love to be in that state. I love to meditate because I love to be in that state. I love to love because I love to be in that state.

If ever possible I walk through life looking through the eyes of love. When you look through the eyes of love you perceive everything in a completely different way. You see a bee as divine creation which flies around all day long to just fulfill its purpose and we benefit from its purpose. This little bee serves us. A meadow of flowers in the spring makes our hearts jump and every single flower and piece of grass does serve us for that feeling. Everything around us serves us. Like every person serves us. When you see everything through the eyes of love you get distanced from physical needs and problems. You see the behavior of others towards you as struggles they have to deal with. You will be able to see their problems, their sorrows, or their burdens, or you will simply perceive that they might have those problems. Looking through the eyes of love will make you compassionate in a supportive but not in a pitying way which never helps. Acting now from this place of perception will lift you into a state of higher awareness and people can feel that. They will change their behaviors over time or even leave since they can’t deal with your new and higher vibration. People will just connect with you because they feel this love and love is all we need in the end. When it comes to the basics we don’t need good advice we only need love and everything else gets into a new order.

When we feel loved, we feel love. Out of that, we gain power, motivation, visions, courage, and strength. I am again at the point where I say: All we need is love!

I had a wonderful experience with a homeless person (actually there were two but I want to tell you about the first one). It was two years ago when I went to Pasadena for Wayne Dyer’s lecture. The lecture was scheduled for the evening but I was there already around 10 am. I strolled around, felt the warm Californian sun, and just enjoyed the me-time. While looking at some shop windows someone started talking to me. I turned around and saw a young-looking woman. She was dressed very simply. Her clothes looked old and used but tidy. She almost did not dare to look me in the eyes and felt guilty for talking to me. She said God bless you several times before she asked me for some money. When I saw her eyes I saw such sadness lying in them and the embarrassment to be in this situation. She said, she was pregnant and is all by herself and that she doesn’t know how to help herself but asked for some money. I am always very careful when it comes to those situations most of all when I am by myself. But this was different. When I looked into the eyes of that woman something happened. The world around us seemed to dissolve. There was only she and I within a bubble. I felt safe and looked into my purse. I only had a one-dollar-note and a twenty-dollar-note. After a second of course I pulled out the twenty-dollar note. When I gave it to her, her eyes filled with tears. She couldn’t stop thanking me. I couldn’t help it and hugged her strongly and long. I wished her all the blessings in the world. This woman gifted me with the greatest gift ever. She served me in activating the most wonderful feeling: the feeling of love. She seemed like an angel to me sent from above to make me see. I gave her money and she showed me something within myself I had never felt before.

I felt so much love for this woman I never met before – or did I? She felt so very close. And when at night Wayne Dyer was talking about divine love I knew that what I felt was the pure connection from soul to soul – the purest, deepest, and most primary connection possible. And yes, that way we met before…

Don’t Forget the Rooms of Power in Times of Struggle!

A house has several rooms. When we stand in the living room this might be the world for that moment because we only see that room in which we linger. We also know about the other rooms but they have no priority at that moment. When we need something from the kitchen or the bathroom we go there and then the kitchen or the bathroom has all the attention at that moment although we know about the living room.

The small steps are the important ones!

Throughout December we read a lot more posts about sadness, problems within the family, violence, hunger, frustration, poverty, and broken hearts,… I guess like all of you it really moves and while we are reading those stories we wish to just hug those people and tell them that they are not alone although it seems for them.

Don’t fear, just love!

Do you know that? You want something so hard that your thoughts are only circling around that one thing. May it be a certain outcome of a project, or of a decision someone else makes, a job you want, showing up something you want in your life, winning the jackpot, … If something you have dreamed of for a long time is coming closer and closer but has not manifested yet, you could go crazy because you fear to lose it before you even had. There is still excitement about the fulfilling of that dream but the fear of a possible failure is growing more and more. Why? Read more ›

Love is patient, Love is kind…

All of you may know that I do have a deep faith that has nothing to do with any religion. Nevertheless, I love the Bible stories and their messages. Today I want to share a very famous excerpt, which is known in all parts of the world: The 1 Corinthians, chapter 13. It provides the core of what love is and how we recognize if we feel love, acts out of love, and live in a love that is life’s elixir and our origin. If we had no love… we had nothing. Love is all we really need. That’s why we do so much in order to receive love. We make sacrifices fight, murder, and die. Love is the basic need we all have in common. If we have love – if we really have, feel, and give love  – there is no need to compensate it with anything in the world. As soon as we are one with the real true pure love that makes every miracle possible we have found the master key to life.

Thinking Positive – is that the solution?

tumblr_n3f4dlYgca1qi6qtro1_500

Recently I said to a good friend of mine: “You cannot dig in the mud and expect yourself coming out clean!” His life has gotten more and more difficult and tough over the past 3 years in his private life but also in his job. Also his ex-wife is bothering him more than ever before regarding their children. Meanwhile he says: “How can I think positive when I only see problems eating me up?”

The real problem is that thinking positive is only the first part. Thinking positive but not believing what you think is of no use.  You can think what you want. As long as you don’t believe it, nothing will change. The real power comes from our feeling. Feelings of fear for example have an enormous power and keep us from believing what we actually wish for. In fear we are so weak that we are not able to trust in our own power. We can transform our lives but only if we believe that we can.

If you want to lose weight and you stand in front of the mirror and say: “I am thin, I am so very thin, oh my god do I look thin.”, only makes sense when you believe it. Which is hard, while you stand in front of the mirror and watch your whole body, the five pounds on your left side, the five on our right side. What you really think is: “Oh no, nothing will ever change!” Throw that bloody mirror out of the room. You cannot start convincing your system and your body that you are thin when you show them the opposite at the same time. You can reprogram your thinking pattern and your whole belief system. That is what I did and how I changed my whole life.

Abstract_architecture_Optical_Illusion_wallpaper

Trust that there are more options in life than what you see at the moment: We believe a lot easier what we see. If what we see is tragedy than we likely believe that this might be the only truth. But it is only one possible outcome of a countless number. Whatever you pay attention to will show up. It is up to you what you focus at.

Create conditions in order to believe what you want to have as a result in your life. If you want to write a book, simply start writing without knowing how to publish it. Just start writing and feel the joy of starting your adventure.

Break it down in little steps: Start doing things that make it easier to convince yourself that the change is already about to happen. Start doing things that give you a sense of achievement in order to motivate you to move on and to strengthen the belief in the result.

Don’t give up: Your system was trained for years with specific thinking pattern. So give it time to reprogram. Even if you can’t believe a certain thought right away, keep repeating it again and again. That’s the power of affirmation. Thinking a single thought often enough affects the thinking pattern. Following those patterns forms a belief. And hanging on to a belief long enough will become a part of your belief system. Right there lies the power of creation.

Very important! Don’t tell anybody: We are creatures of habit. And if someone does something he never did before it might be questioned or criticized. Whatever you are planning to do, don’t tell anybody before you completely are what you do.

If you want to change your life, your situation or do something new there is no choice but to break out of your old circle thinking.  You can choose those thoughts, which are in alignment with your result. But very important, you need to be one with those thoughts in order to fill yourself with conviction. The feelings you send out are your connector and you will always be connected in the outside world to what has been vibrating in your inside world in first place.

Even in the darkest coldest night it is possible to lighten a candle. I don’t say it was easy to change your point of view and your whole belief system when you are in the middle of turmoil. But only then you find out that you are in the wrong movie. You don’t feel the need to change anything when you are happy. It is always the challenging situations in life that show us what we want and where obviously our mind is not in alignment with our heart.

In Love and Light!

Over here fall slowly turns to winter regarding the rare brown and dry leaves left on the trees. A few weeks ago I took that picture above in a theme park where we spent a day with two of our kids. It was a warm and sunny day. Although it was almost mid-October we wore t-shirts most of the time. It was a beautiful day.

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 losing 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.

Make it like a Dandelion!

dandelion-wishes-home-page

Imagine a dandelion. I guess every child that lives in an area where this flower grows has blown away the little umbrellas it develops after its blooming period. It is amazing to see these fluffy seeds drifting away with the wind and gently landing somewhere in order to become a new dandelion. Although gardeners are not happy having them in their gardens dandelions show in a very clear picture how to spread a part of themselves in order to secure the survival of their kind.

What is our purpose in life? A question I asked myself to no end, until I found out that I don’t have to search for it. The answer lies within me. I am here to manifest myself in the outside world – first with my body, than with my actions and further with what I leave for others. The way I walk through life leaves something wherever I put my foot on. Isn’t it the greatest wish of all of us, to leave something in this world in order to make ourselves an important or unforgettable part? Isn’t it the greatest fulfillment to complement the world with something only the individual hast to give?

Therefore it is so important not to be someone others want you to be. Because if you try to give something that is not part of yourself, you will get frustrated, disappointed by yourself and feel failing because you don’t meet the expectations of what you think is asked from you. You could never get it done, since you can only give away what you have. But there is not only something, there is so much you have to give – so much only you have to give. Think of musicians. Music is something that accompanies us all the time; in our happy days, at sad times, when we celebrate something. When we hear a certain song we remember episodes or chapters in our lives. Music and the people who deliver this music do a great job for us. And although there are so many musicians in the world, every single one of them has a certain style or way of making music.

It doesn’t matter what you brought into this world, whether it is the wish to heal, to build houses, to invent things, to raise kids, to save the environment, create furniture, fly an airplane, or whatever. It contains a part of you, which makes it unique and incomparable although others might also fly a plane, raise kids, heal, or build houses. Whatever you give as something you brought into this world has your unique touch and leaves your footprint in this world. If you don’t do it, it will be missing.

Show us what you carry inside. Share your abilities and passion with us. Be a role model for others and unfold your being. You not only will experience the greatest fulfillment but you will also succeed. Because you only carry inside what you are meant to give away. You intended to make yourself visible, that’s your purpose. Do it your way! In doing it your way you set something very important free: Enthusiasm, joy, passion, love. You will experience deep satisfaction and happiness combined with a peaceful mind. Because in giving your gift you let it flow on a stream of who you are. And who you are is pure love including happiness, enthusiasm, joy, passion.

Make it like a dandelion and spread your seeds. Take a deep breath and blow your spirit into the world. We live forever. And in leaving a part of our creative and loving power we can even become kind of immortal in this world of change.

In Love and Light!

Have Faith – everything else falls into place!

blog-0014040001349114973

The way I lived my life was strongly influenced by control – self-control.  Self-control is not necessarily a bad thing. But since I tried to be someone I wasn’t in order to please my surrounding, get their approval, and avoid conflicts or criticism, I was trying hard to keep myself under control. I controlled my words and my behavior in the direction I thought others wanted me to talk or to act. When I had to face unknown situations I totally lost ground. It scared me to know when I did not know how things might turn out. That’s why I was too afraid to try something new. I always needed someone could hand over the problem since I felt too overwhelmed with it. I always needed security and clarity about the outcome of my steps. And as we all know: This is not possible! You can never try anything new, without entering an area you haven’t entered before.

Chained Hands!

Do you know this? Someone dear, a relative, or a close friend is about to head into disaster. You can literally see and feel it. But you can’t do anything but watch him suffer. I experienced this a few years ago.

As I began to love myself…

I just stumbled again over these beautiful words. Charles Chaplin delivered this speech on his 70th birthday. Probably you all know it already. But every time I read it, it moves me! It goes so deep and leaves me with wet eyes all the time. So much wisdom and experience are lying in these words, reminding us that we can lift the curtain of illusion in order to find the beauty, love, and all the answers we have been looking for.

Living spiritually doesn’t mean becoming a saint!

Ignorance – a helpful Characteristic!

Individuality

During my workout, I heard the song Naughty Boy – Lalala. It reminded me of 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 negative intolerant behavior. Actually, it simply is a characteristic that too often appears in a negative way.

How other people treat me is their path…

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

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!
