Aren’t we all disappointed in ourselves at times? We think we “have it in the bag”, or we are convinced about how something works out, but then it hits us unexpectedly that we are mistaken. It can make us lose confidence in ourselves.

You Are An Influencer!

We are constantly exposed to external influences. These influences determine how we influence ourselves. Because in the end, the influence of thoughts and deeds is only by yourself. Being influenced AND influencing happens unconsciously until you understand that your own thoughts do not just happen but can be controlled.

Emerging Into Grace

After the crazy busyness and hectic of the past weeks, I am enjoying it even more more to sit on my patio and let my inspiration flow for writing my post. I was just so relaxed that I emptied my spirit… and kept in empty… lol. So, I decided to pick a card getting inspired.

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 criticized for 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 to show a part of us which we kept hidden for so 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 hearts and passion. And then it happens…. the door opens up!

The Choice Is Ours

No mountain too high, no river too wide when it comes to realize our dreams. It may not be easy but as long as we pursue the goal there will be possibilities. I wrote a short metaphoric story regarding this topic and will share it with you today. Whatever is now does not define what will be. You can make it, if you only believe.

I took a walk through the forest. It was a beautiful early summer day. The sunlight found its way through the tiniest spaces between the already leafy treetops, and nature seemed to reach out its arms to me, full of energy. I perceived the humid, spicy scent of the forest air, which gave me a feeling of connection with this place. Although birds were chirping exuberantly and something was rustling in the undergrowth now and then, the atmosphere was so peaceful and harmonious that I almost had the feeling of being in a different world.

Happy New Year 2020

Basically, January 1st is only the following day after December 31st. Projects have already been in progress and don’t only start on the first day of the year. But still, the change of the year makes us review what was and what has been to become aware if we are still on track or if there is the need to make some changes. Some people make New Year’s resolutions. What I like about those resolutions is that there is a clear awareness that a change has to come from the individual itself.

Carol Anne asked an interesting question about a week ago: If you could be totally amazing at just one thing, what one thing would you want to be amazing at?

The Misinterpretation of Motivation

25PositiveAttitudeQuotesToShareWithHimWhenHeFeelsDown.jpg

I often hear about how companies should make it an effort to motivate their employees or to provide conditions to motivate their personnel. Lately, I came across this again and it made me ponder. I think this is a misinterpretation of the meaning of the word “motivation”. Because that way, people are actually manipulated or paid off to do something they don’t want to do. In my opinion, the meaning of the word is used wrongly. Read more ›

It’s Only The Initial Situation – Not The Result!

nidoqubein1-2x.jpg

When you receive a shocking diagnosis you are waiting for information about how serious everything is, about the level of the disease, about the probable treatment, and most of all about the chances of surviving and healing. Mostly there are two possible reactions: Either I fall in desperation and get worked up in fear regarding “what could happen” or I look at the chances and options to support “what could happen”. What I want to happen or what I expect to happen is an inner concept and how this inner concept looks like reveals in exceptional circumstances.

What Really Matters…

1737083-H-G-Wells-Quote-What-really-matters-is-what-you-do-with-what-you.jpg

Basically, when asked, everybody knows for themselves what really matters in their lives (most of all those who were already reminded through life). Taking a serious look at our lives we distance pretty soon from luxury problems which cause us to complain reflexively. Who cares about a closed gate or standing at a red light, a rainy day or a missed bus when you consciously think about the meaning. Those things are temporary “problems” which mostly don’t have a deeper impact on the future. Read more ›

Monday Song

music-2087771_960_720

Happy Monday, everybody! Here we are, back in a new week. I remembered a wonderful song by Christina Aguillera which I listened to over and over again when I heard it first. It was around the time when I began to write “I’m Free” 10 years ago. This song touched me deeply with its powerful message. There is so much encouragement and understanding in it. Regardless of what you are told or of what you have told yourself, there is something inside of you which never believed your destructive thoughts. The voice within never stopped telling you how amazing you are… because you are! Read more ›

Denzel Washington is one of my favorite actors. Right, who cares…lol. And what has it to do with my Monday post? After listening to a song on YouTube I stumbled over a speech of Denzel Washington at the Dillard University. Of course, I had to check it out and was amazed. I had no idea that he was such a fantastic motivational speaker. I am sharing the 8 minutes speech (with German subtitles) below. In general, he is talking about things we basically know but it is in the way he conveys and explains them. He nails everything in a way that reaches heart and mind at once. In point 2 of his speech, he said Fail Big. Read more ›

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.

Dr. Dyer Quote.JPG

It is often said – and I said it too – that we should not do what we do in order to impress others or in order to prove something to others but we should do it because WE want it. The other day, I heard an interesting interview with a very successful Austrian children-book author who sold over 40 millions of books worldwide. He said when he started his career his motivation to succeed was on one hand to manifest his vision but the motivation to do it was to prove the skeptics wrong. Once that was done he only did it because he wanted it to do. That made me rethink my former opinion. Read more ›

I was talking about that in the end, every decision teaches us something necessary which makes detours or “trips” so important!  Read more ›

The Pressure of Making Decisions!

32190-Tony-Robbins-Quote-It-is-in-your-moments-of-decision-that-your.jpg

I wrote a few times about making decisions. Basically, I believe that whatever decision we make it will lead us towards the place in our life we are meant to arrive. It is like using the GPS system in your car. You put in the address but there are several options to reach your destination. We also have this inner GPS which already knows the address. We simply choose the kind of road we walk towards it. Every step and pee pit stop on that road will give us energy and insights to continue our journey or lead us to short cuts.

cartoon_bull.jpg

We often feel that it is time for a decision to make. Since I am having a stubborn ego that keeps me from backing out I push and force myself often very hard to decide. I think it is the same not so constructive attitude like turning away and postponing decisions. Again, there comes that patience issue and feeling like a coward or like breaking a self-made promise when not pulling it through and moving on.

Stier.gif

It is good to be aware when a time of change has arrived and that a decision is about to be made. But it does not always mean that we are supposed to decide right away but to change into an observing position in order to see the whole picture.

ed88800b9f9c25eaa999d4862cd7a549.jpg

The serenity prayer holds a profound truth. It is about that! I agree that not making a decision is also a decision – a passive one. But consciously observing a situation is something completely different. It means we are still sticking with the subject. But other than making any decision only for the sake of deciding (which will lead us towards our destination for sure too) we grant ourselves the privilege of the higher perspective in order to make a decision that possibly even shows us a short-cut while getting the overview and letting things develop in the background. Being an attentive observer makes us act or react in the perfect moment.

higher-perspective-quotes-7.jpg

When you are an impatient person like me it is a huge challenge to sit and wait because it feels like you might miss out on something or time is running out. But this is not the case. Even a tough decision to make can feel more peaceful when the right moment has arrived instead of forcing it because our mind says so. Yes, in the end, it is not the rational mind that has to give the starting shot but the heart which already knows the straight way towards our destination. In the end, waiting in peaceful awareness makes you arrive faster than making a decision only because your mind pushes you in order prove your ego that you are no coward. That way you can avoid a lot of detours and the path itself is smoother. Don’t let the wind blow you anywhere. Check where it comes from and adjust the sails.

jimmydean131287.jpg

Not easy at all. I know that too well. But I also learned how much of a relief it is when you give yourself the permission to let things happen or to watch a situation until you feel more centered when you decide to decide! Sometimes it happens quickly and like a reflex and sometimes we need to exit, buy a road map, and go from there.

Song of the Day

song-of-the-day

Today I want to share a very special song. For some reason, I never heard about it although it is a song that totally speaks to my soul. This song is not only special to me because of its motivating and encouraging message. Two days ago I sang at the funeral of the husband of a former school mate. He only turned 46 after fighting cancer for over 2 years. This song accompanied him during that time and was played at the end of the funeral and. To tell from what was said about him it was his way of living but – even more poignant –  the message he left for those he left behind. It was said that this song described him: A positive person, not wasting time but filling it with all that life could give.  Read more ›

Some of you may know that I took a break from posting posted less during the past 2 weeks in order to focus more concentrated on my new project. You know me! When I start something I want to get it done. On one hand, because I am so excited and full of energy which supports the progress and on the other hand because I am the embodiment of impatience and want to see results. Read more ›

It is really interesting where this post went. I started with an idea in mind but at one point went a different road. I did not change anything because I don’t want the mind to destroy what spirit created through a natural flow of inspiration. Read more ›

We Can Change!

quote-the-reality-is-we-can-change-we-can-change-ourselves-we-can-change-our-minds-we-can-richard-gere-84-31-07

We all are products of our habits and our thoughts. Over the years we have come into routines in our lives. Experiences which we stored in our minds have become labeled and whenever a similar experience shows up we open the folder with the fitting label and add it to our collection. We are acting more and more like robots instead of  human beings. Read more ›

Don’t Let Their Discontentment Control Your Life!

quote-enjoy-everything-that-happens-in-your-life-but-never-make-your-happiness-or-success-wayne-dyer-52-1-0105

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 will-power 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. Read more ›

Look Beyond!

looking-beyond-770x289

 

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

The Challenge of Challenging People!

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

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

soulmates-bring-out-the-best

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

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

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

df3af2c78799aedb8425b95c25e4e36b

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

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

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

Song of the Day

Song of the day

Yesterday I heard a song by Leona Lewis and I remembered a song of her which was released during the time I broke my armor and allowed myself to grow. I listened to that song over and over again. The timing of the song and the path I was on, was just perfect!

So what if it hurts me?
So what if I break down?
So what if this world just throws me off the edge
My feet run out of ground
I gotta find my place
I wanna hear my sound
Don’t care about all the pain in front of me
Cause I’m just trying to be happy, yeah
Just wanna be happy, yeah

Have an awesome and happy day!

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… Read more ›

Song of the day

I hope you all enjoyed the weekend. I had a fantastic one. The weather was gorgeous and my daughter celebrated her 21st birthday. That’s why I wasn’t a lot around yesterday. It was the first birthday since she moved out and it was very relaxing to only back one cake and enjoy the party somewhere else instead of being the host and organizer. Really cool!!!

But it’s Monday again and most of us are back at work. For some, it means more sitting (like for me) but for many their jobs have to do with a lot of walking. In order to give those of you a little push to get the week started, I send you this song along 😄. Have a happy day and a fantastic start into the new week!

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 body 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! Read more ›

There is so much that challenges us every day. May it be work. May it be dealing with particular people or unexpected situations. May it be our physical condition. May it  be something we want so badly but we know it is a long way to go. No matter what might go wrong, how long a journey may appear or what others try to make us believe about ourselves: You are born to rise!  Read more ›

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. Read more ›

Give Your Best Anyway!

It is not the first time that I am touching this subject. Circumstances at work inspired me for going into it.

Imagine that you are excited about something you are about to do. You think you are doing really well and you are definitely giving your best due to your excitement. You make all efforts needed and even more in order to show your joyful engagement. Then it appears that what you did is not good enough but not because you did something wrong but because you did not have all information needed due to a lack of communication. Or you did something that was already organized – again due to a lack of communication. You think your whole work has become useless and the time was wasted. Not wasted in your eyes but you imagine your bosses would think like that.

quote-Antonio-Banderas-expectation-is-the-mother-of-all-frustration-115927

I experienced exactly that last Tuesday in an intensive way. When I come in the morning I always need to check what happened during the last afternoon when I wasn’t there. At the moment so much is going on about organizing things that still need to be fixed, material we need, data which have to be put into the computer, and many more things which are not part of the actual work later. On that day last week, I got some things organized and after I communicated it I was told  that it all was already done. Great! I don’t want to blame anybody because we all need to get used to this new situation.  But on that very morning, I thought that it was all in vain. The crucial point is that not only my colleague and I start anew but also my bosses do and they need to figure out how to prevent misunderstandings. Anyway, on that day last week, I was very frustrated, to say the least. I also felt exhausted because I really gave it all.

fe9bc43534ae92eec2c2da0f9f058450.jpg

After I felt sorry for myself I told me not to be silly because it wasn’t my fault. What I did was not wrong. It was just not complete in one way or not necessary in the other way due to missing instructions. Of course, I hope that my bosses see that too but in the end, I know that I did my best and I did it with enthusiasm (which might have actually increased the frustration). If that is not seen then it is not about me either. Sure, mistakes and misunderstandings will happen. But I know that the longer we all work together and the closer we are reaching the point where we are finally working on the real purpose, things are getting more and more into a routine. I won’t let myself get discouraged by days like these. They will happen at times even in a year from now. It is not about such days it is about the greater goal we all have and about moving towards step by step – together.

give-the-best-quotes-You-get-the-best-out-of-others-when-you-give-the-best-of-yourself.

When activities are including more people the result is a co-creation. It doesn’t mean that one has only half the responsibility when working with a partner on something. It means that both have 100 % responsibility for the outcome. Only when both give 100 % of what they are able, the trail will lead to a path and the path to a road. Some days there are stones in the way and some days there might be a pothole. One day the one has more power to clear the path than the other. On another day both are sharing the clearing equally. Then again there might be times when one clears in order for the other one to go full speed. This is called pulling on the same string. Whatever both do, they should always give their best for the goal they want to achieve!

Whether it concerns work, a relationship, or a personal project you are working on, there can be setbacks. There can be times when you think what you do is not good enough. But never lose the grip of giving your best anyway. Giving your best is not something that should be planned for a specific occasion. It should be an attitude and characteristic constantly. If giving your best is part of your daily actions, it shines through all you do and it gives everything you do a much deeper meaning. You will definitely become much more content about what you achieved during the day. Taking things serious no matter how unimportant they may appear will make you enjoy doing them a lot more and they will for sure turn out a lot better. Even if things seem to go wrong today, continue giving your best tomorrow. Don’t doubt yourself when things are not working out the way you expected them. Your best depends on so many factors and it is not always the same. But it is your best on that day anyway. Another day – another chance! Seize the day! Decide to make it the best day ever in giving the best you are able to give on this very day.

When doubt takes over
Please don’t forget
Doubts are just thoughts
But not a fact

There are times when we think what we are doing is not enough or when everything comes together and we think we had to manage it all. NO! We are only one person. We can do our best in each moment but we cannot do more than our best. We cannot prevent us from stressful times but we must never forget that they are temporary. Leap up the collar and walk through the storm step by step and know that it will be over sooner if you only keep moving! I believe in you! Read more ›

The Freedom to be Me

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