This post is the last Monday post before Christmas. It would be obvious to talk about remembering the true meaning of Christmas or to relate to the current situation. But instantly there was one single word in my head: Enjoy!

#MomentsOfJoy

Joy is always there. It can be that first sip of coffee, a warming ray of sun after three days of rain, or it is the cozy blanket and a cup of tea on a cold evening. It may be my own smile, and it is up to me when I am using it. Joy is always there. Sometimes it may be a bit buried, covered with dust or thrown in a corner… but it is there, waiting patiently until we let it shine again.

#MomentsOfJoy

For today’s #MomentsOfJoy I am sharing a song I was listening to over and over again. It is the theme song of the workshops of Esther and Jerry († Nov. 2011) Hicks. She is the author of The Law of Attraction, The Vortex, and many more books. When I was heading with highspeed to my breakthrough moment, this book was one of the stepstones. In 2009 I had the opportunity to join one of those workshops in which Esther Hicks is channeling Abraham, and it was an unforgettable experience.

A Smile Is A Reminder

http://www.askideas.com

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

#MomentsOfJoy

I checked YouTube for some joyful videos. I simply put in the word JOY, and the first thing that popped up was an 80s boy group. I remember their song and it made me giggle instantly. It sounds like they hardly tried to imitate Modern Talking – obviously not very successful. When I checked out the video, I immediately decided to share it today. The song, the video, everything is so constructed which gave me such a good laugh. I could not remember how bad it was. I thought this must be the most embarrasing 80s song 😂 Do you know a worse one?
However, I hope it gives you some joyful moments😂

Not What You Do But Who You Are

I often mention that I am writing my posts quite a while ahead to make sure that I am having them ready even when something gets in my way. What amazes me very often is the fact that so many readers say, how timely the post was for them and probably would not have touched anything in them if it was published right away.

#MomentsOfJoy

I think all of us make good use of some distractions. Why not sharing something funny, uplifting or beautiful? It can be a joke, a picture with a beautiful view, a song, a video, a story or whatever comes to your mind. It only needs to be positive with only positive words for creating positive feelings in everyone who visits.

I think all of us make good use of some distractions from the current #1 theme. Why not sharing something funny, uplifting or beautiful (at least) once a week. It can be a joke, a picture with a beautiful view from the area you live or a place you like a lot, a song, a video, a story or whatever comes to your mind. It only needs to be positive with only positive words.

The Main Ingredient To Succeed

ralphwaldoemerson1-2x.jpg

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

The Power of Silliness!

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

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

ludwigwittgenstein1.jpg

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

untitled11.jpg

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

ybuib.gif

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

wnd_ac27a6323661db34fddc51e6886c5527.jpg

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

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.

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 ›

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.

A Two Weeks Review Of Gratitude And Blessings

I heard sceptic voices regarding meeting bloggers in person because of a possible disappointment. My own experience was nothing like that at all. I did not have any expectations about the wonderful people I was going to meet. They already captured my heart for months and I dare to say that we did know each other by heart. That is why it was not necessary that any ice needed to be broken. There simply was no ice. We all embraced each other with arms wide open! We laughed and joked about all the things we were posting about. It truly were meetings between old friends! I am already thinking about my next trip. I will make it an effort that at least once in my life I want to embrace the people I call my friends, brothers, and sisters! Read more ›

Song of the Day

We have the best summer ever and I have to say that this is the best summer ever for me too! Everything is just wonderful and things unfold, and unfold, and unfold…. I will keep you posted when the time has come. Just a little hint: it has also to do with my next book😉

I would love to share my happy feelings with you. The sky looks bluer, the air feels fresher, and everything blossoms this year a lot fuller (not lying, that’s a fact). It is like the world was born new or was I born new into this world? That made me think of this song. Read more ›

How to live a successful life! Part 4

IMG_2446

In Part 4 of the success series (see part 3 Love what you do) I am talking about banishing your doubts while working on your project or personal development. Instead open up for insights, tools and signs which are coming up in the process of walking towards your goals.

Don’t doubt but open up your mind!
Success is to live your purpose! Your purpose can change depending on your age, your family situation, and your personal evolution! We have so many purposes in life. And one lived purpose gives you the necessary experiences that lead you to the next one. You don’t need to know what your purpose will be in 10 years. You simply have to live what seems right and important for you now. The next step will unfold right out of that at the perfect time.

When you start walking a new path doubts are likely to appear. You are taking a new direction which you have no experience with. You have to get familiar with abilities you need to develop or improve. You are encountering new spheres, new kinds of people and most of all you get introduced to parts on youSelf which you have never known before. That irritates in the beginning. But don’t worry that’s normal – it is simply new! And being confused about all of this is the best proof that things reorder and that you are about to change your world according to the change of your consciousness. Your intention to expand yourSelf, to improve yourSelf, and to simply evolve your life with yourSelf is the fuel for success in whatever you do!

Success is to keep an open mind for whatever you want to accomplish, for whatever dream you want to realize. Believe that this dream or vision only exists because you brought it into this world. It is a reminder of your soul and says: Don’t forget what you wanted to do. I remind you because it is meant to be. Come on, it’s time now!

There are so many things lying dormant within us to call us when time has come to go for this new adventure. When you feel to go about a new project then start to take the first step in that direction. You don’t need to know the whole plan. Just start somewhere. Now keep your eyes, ears and your heart open. Watch the signs of the beginning development and grab them. They lead you to more ideas and after a while you will see more and more of the whole picture. People will appear in your life, you will see headlines in magazines and newspapers, or you will hear someone talking which gives you right the catchwords you needed.

An open mind that looks into the direction of fulfillment is focused on manifestation and nothing else. Its intention is clear and strong. Then doubts are not weakening but even helping to stabilize the progress.

Song of the Day!

It is Easter Sunday, Spring is showing up more and more on the northern part of the globe, and our feelings are starting to bloom according to nature. Today I was looking for a song that meets this expression of a new beginning, of feeling ourselves in a new way, of a breakthrough within ourselves… A song that says THIS IS ME  and I am perfect the way I am. From now on there is no hiding of my light but shining it out into the world. I am who I am! That’s my power, that’s my gift and whoever wants a piece: feel free to take it. Read more ›

Happiness felt, lost, and regained, has the bigger claws than never lost.

All my life I carried along so many dreams, wishes, and longings. But either I wasn’t able for some reasons to go for them, or I denied them to myself out of fear and a lack of self-esteem. Whenever finally things seemed to manifest or miraculously fall into place I was overwhelmed that I may get it, experience it, enjoy it, have it in my life although I already might have accepted the fact to never get certain things or to never get that far. When it happened the flame inside of me has become a bonfire. Read more ›

When I heard this song today I started dancing. That’s a song that makes me feel summer, beach, lightness, relaxation, happiness. It kind of fills my heart with light.

Now when you look outside and see the first signs of spring just dance and let the good vibes fill you with anticipation for the upcoming warm season. (If it doesn’t look like spring outside then close your eyes and imagine it… winter is coming to an end.) Whatever is pulling on you through these times just pause for a moment and remember that life is so much more.  Read more ›

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 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 ›

Christmas Vacation

Hello all together. Hope you had a holly jolly Christmas.

Over here we celebrate Christmas on December 24 in the evening. My husband and I and even the kids still love to indulge our family tradition: In the morning I go around and give away some presents to poor families or kids who have to stay in the hospital over Christmas. For lunch we have potato salad and a variety of sausages. In the afternoon we are going to the theatre watching a movie and when we come home we lighten the candles on the tree play Christmas music and exchange presents.

This year we thought we take a brief time out. We sticked to our tradition on the 24th but on the 25th we drove to Tyrol (Austria) and spent two days in a Wellness hotel. After my busiest year ever I enjoyed it to the max to only relax and slow down. We arrived at the most beautiful spring weather and the next day everything was covered with snow.  Here we go with the photos:

When we arrived at home there was barely snow but it started snowing in the evening and this is how it looks like right now….

20141227_210124

… a dream of silence and peace. These moments are the reason why I started to love winter!

Enjoy the rest of the year, enjoy your friends and family but most of all enjoy YOURSELF!

Where is Christmas…?

The magic of christmas lies in our hearts

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 ›

Christmas Market in Lindau (Germany)

First of all I apologize that I wasn’t able to read and react to your posts over the weekend. We had problems with our internet connection. Thank God I already scheduled my regular posts for this week. Anyway, internet is back and I am happy to share our weekend event with you.

On Saturday my husband, my mom and I went to one of our favorite Christmas Markets in Lindau. The city lies at the lake Constance. The market is located right at the historic harbor. It is a beautiful scenery. Although there were more people than we ever experienced we enjoyed it more than ever. We really love it. Also about in the middle we always stop and enjoy a hot punc, a hot chocolate or a hot spiced wine. Read more ›

Christmas: The Holiday of Love!

Why do I love Christmas so much? I think it is the same reason why most of you (the ones of you who celebrate it of course) might love it. It is this special atmosphere that is lying in the air. This excitement of getting back to feelings and practices of our childhood. The commitment we have a thousand times more than in all the other months of the year, and this certain sensitivity and sensibility.

I know that not everyone feels like that. When you lost a loved one. When you had a tough year or when Christmas means stress because you feel pushed to fulfill expectations or when you are impelled to be with people (family) you tried to avoid throughout the year. Then the holidays might be sad, depressive, stress and frustrating even before they actually started.

Christmas is called the Holiday of Love. We all deserve to feel, experience and therefore give that love. It is the perfect day to get aware that love is all we have to give in the end. If we want to live in peace we have to develop a sense of love for our outside world. We have to develop a sense of love in order to fill ourselves with love. We have to develop a sense of love to find ways to celebrate this love with others and give away this most precious gift.

Whatever we experienced throughout the year. Make peace with it. Get aware that life means more than struggle and competition. Life is development and mutual support. And the greatest power for that comes out of love. We yearn for it , wish for it, search for it – like the one next to us, like the homeless, like the child that has to spend Christmas at the hospital, like that relative who might have bothered you in the past. Take all your anger, frustration and disappointment and decide consciously to celebrate the Holiday of Love. Transform all your anger and be willing to fill yourself with love in order to spend the most fulfilling Christmas ever. If you cannot forgive and just wait for the first “wrong” comment, you punish yourself.

Here are some tips how you can fill your heart with love and satisfaction:

Do something good. Buy a homeless a hot meal. Let someone go in front of you when you are standing in line. Put some cookies anonymously in front of a person’s door in order to show that someone cares.

Simplify the holidays, don’t stress yourself out in order to not be totally exhausted and angry.

Be grateful for the fact that there are people around you that care for you and thank for the chance to give something back at this special time of the year.

Consciously hug the ones you have been struggling with and get aware that they also have an important supportive place in your life. Wish them a Merry Christmas and mean it.

Don’t look out for tensions you expect like “every year” but decide to fill yourself with love, decide to let everybody be who he is, decide to have fun and enjoy like you never enjoyed it before, decide to spread good vibrations, and decide to make everybody feel welcome in your surrounding.

In Love and Light!

Trip to Oceanside CA

It has been a while since I posted my last impressions of my days in California after the I CAN DO IT convention and my book signing. Btw., you would not believe what is happening at the moment in my life. On Sunday I gave my last workshop for this year and it was awesome. I am very excited about scheduling my workshops for next year. Yesterday I got a call from my publisher and perhaps I get the chance to give workshops in a big business hotel in our capital beginning next year. It is still in discussion but things are in motion like the offer for another marketing campaign with Kimberly Rinaldi. I met her at the book signing in Pasadena and she just got back to me. What a year!!!

But now I want to share some beautiful views from another part of Southern California. We spend one day in Oceanside and when we drove back we stopped at my favorite spot in Laguna Beach to watch the sunset! Enjoy!

We began our day at the Beach Comber in Crystal Cove. It is right on the beach with the most inspiring surrounding. It is also beautiful for taking a walk along the beach. The atmosphere in the morning is a dream.20141029_091406

Very special about it is that they own an original document written and signed by Abraham Lincoln which says that the mission is given back.IMG_4895

Ventura CA

Last week on Tuesday we left Santa Barbara. On our way down to Costa Mesa we stopped at Ventura beach and harbor. On one side of a long headland you find a beautiful beach on the other side there is the harbor with with shops and restaurants. Very nice place!

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

Halloween in Huntington Beach, California

20141031_195122_resized

Hi, my dear friends! Halloween was awesome. I am so happy I had the chance to spend it in the US this time. My husband and I went to Huntington Beach downtown. There was an amazing party going on. Lots of great costumes. My husband and I went as the perfect match as you can see below on the pictures. Therefore we were a popular target. People ran by and asked us to be on a photo with them. It was so cool!

OK Rob, as promised, here comes Batgirl:

As I began to love myself…

I just stumbled again over these beautiful words. Charles Chaplin delivered this speech at 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 that we can lift the curtain of illusion in order to find the beauty, love and all the answers we have been looking for.

 

20120927111210_charlie_chaplin_everything_is_a_gag

“As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is AUTHENTICITY.

As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody as I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me.Today I call it RESPECT.

As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow. Today I call it MATURITY.

As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exactly right moment, so I could be calm. Today I call it SELF-CONFIDENCE.

As I began to love myself I quit steeling my own time, and I stopped designing huge projects for the future. Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm. Today I call it SIMPLICITY.

As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything the drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Today I know it is LOVE OF ONESELF.

As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since I was wrong less of the time. Today I discovered that is MODESTY.

As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worry about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where EVERYTHING is happening. Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it FULFILLMENT

As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But As I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally. Today I call this connection WISDOM OF THE HEART.

We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing new worlds are born. Today I know THAT IS LIFE!”

 

Reading this gives a feeling of coming home, a feeling so familiar of something we have always known. These words remind us to our own basics and that there is more in life than our daily struggles, and all the stress at work or in our relationships. Reading these words shifts the perspective dramatically and comforts with a knowing that everything that happens, happens in a perfect order – whenever, wherever. Nothing lasts forever downhere. This live is not intended for eternity. It is intended to give eternity a little break and enjoy a period in which we cherish time and space. A period in which we can be who we ever wanted to be. And even if we don’t bring it to satisfaction or seem to mess it up, it is not forever. Nothing can ever harm us.

Chaplin gave us a step-by-step guideline:                                                       AUTHENTICITY – RESPECT – MATURITY – SELF-CONFIDENCE – SIMPLICITY – LOVE OF ONESELF – MODESTY – FULFILLMENT – WISDOM OF THE HEART – LIFE

Being authentic leads to respect and gives you the potential to grow. Your self-confidence will increase and you will give yourself the allowance of living the way that feels good for you. In result you are developing a feeling of happiness and appreciation for yourself – a deep love. You don’t bother yourself anymore with always being right, since this is only weakening and working against this love you don’t wanna give away anymore. You are looking out for greater things, for a greater context and you won’t stress yourself out with worrying about anything in any future, or punish yourself or others for anything in the past. You understand that this would destroy the moment, destroy your health, and the love and happiness you feel. You understand that you only have this moment. And whatever shall be done in this or any other moment you will feel through the wisdom of your heart.

In being aware that we are eternal but the lifetime of this body isn’t shall fill us with the power of immortality and the motivation to live this physical lifetime to the fullest. Now we are here and have the chance to be who we always felt to be. Today we have the chance to live with all our senses. Don’t waste the time! Just live!

You have the right of living happily and loved – no matter what is going on around you in the outside world. But you have to feel this love inside of you first. No matter what happened in your life, you are a child of God and have the right to be happy and filled with love. As long as you don’t believe it, you cut yourself off from something that has always been part of you.

Don’t wait too long, don’t wait until you are 70 or if you are start right away. It is never too late to feel who you are and make this life worth living – in making it your life!

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 means feeling good!

Freedom means feeling good not matter whether others like it or not! – Erika Kind I’m Free – Awareness of Who You Are by Discovering Who You Are Not!  Take a look at the preview when clicking on the link above!

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.

Again you can be free at anytime. Because who you really are is the being you were before you entered this body and who you will remain after leaving this body. The You will never die nor get hurt. No one can put your Soul in chains and Soul is what you are!

girl with raised hands and broken chains

It is your personal freedom to create your individual life out of your individual being. Discover a never known energy, which lets you feel your amazing potential. See your endless possibilities of unfolding. You have come here to thrive!

In Love and Light!

Happiness is always with me!

Happiness is not dependent on where I am

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!

The only person that can keep you from being who you want to be

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!

How to live a successful life! Part 4

IMG_2446

In Part 4 of the success series (see part 3 Love what you do) I am talking about banishing your doubts while working on your project or personal development. Instead open up for insights, tools and signs which are coming up in the process of walking towards your goals.

Don’t doubt but open up your mind!
Success is to live your purpose! Your purpose can change depending on your age, your family situation, and your personal evolution! We have so many purposes in life. And one lived purpose gives you the necessary experiences that lead you to the next one. You don’t need to know what your purpose will be in 10 years. You simply have to live what seems right and important for you now. The next step will unfold right out of that at the perfect time.

When you start walking a new path doubts are likely to appear. You are taking a new direction which you have no experience with. You have to get familiar with abilities you need to develop or improve. You are encountering new spheres, new kinds of people and most of all you get introduced to parts on youSelf which you have never known before. That irritates in the beginning. But don’t worry that’s normal – it is simply new! And being confused about all of this is the best proof that things reorder and that you are about to change your world according to the change of your consciousness. Your intention to expand yourSelf, to improve yourSelf, and to simply evolve your life with yourSelf is the fuel for success in whatever you do!

Success is to keep an open mind for whatever you want to accomplish, for whatever dream you want to realize. Believe that this dream or vision only exists because you brought it into this world. It is a reminder of your soul and says: Don’t forget what you wanted to do. I remind you because it is meant to be. Come on, it’s time now!

There are so many things lying dormant within us to call us when time has come to go for this new adventure. When you feel to go about a new project then start to take the first step in that direction. You don’t need to know the whole plan. Just start somewhere. Now keep your eyes, ears and your heart open. Watch the signs of the beginning development and grab them. They lead you to more ideas and after a while you will see more and more of the whole picture. People will appear in your life, you will see headlines in magazines and newspapers, or you will hear someone talking which gives you right the catchwords you needed.

An open mind that looks into the direction of fulfillment is focused on manifestation and nothing else. Its intention is clear and strong. Then doubts are not weakening but even helping to stabilize the progress.

In Love and Light!

Be a source of feeling good!

In the end who is sufffering more from hatred.
