Truth, Purpose, Progress

BrainyQuote.com

What I share here, on my blog, in my books, at my talks, or with anyone I talk to, is my personal truth. It fits who I am, and it fits my progress. I am aware that truth is never final. Each truth is a small stepping stone that leads me to the next particle of truth. It may expand what I have already considered being the truth, or it may put a new face on it. I would never demand anyone believe it because who am I to say what is right or wrong since I believe that truth is subjective. The truth I like to share as part of my inner calling, is a truth that makes me feel good. It strengthens me, broadens my perspective, and keeps my mind curious about what triggers my heart to discover. By sharing it, I hope to trigger something similar in others.

5 Lessons to Live by

BrainyQuote.com

Most of you may know that I have been a big fan of Dr. Wayne Dyer. The first book of his I read has found me miraculously – not the other way around – and it changed my life. I had read lots of great books before, such as The Law of Attraction, The Power of Now, The Secret, and many others. But just this one book was the central piece of the puzzle that connected all the aspects flying around in my little universe into and fundamental basis for my personal journey to awareness.

Move On

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.

Love Is The Answer

Insecurity usually manifests itself as shyness, subservience, or weakness in decision-making. But at least as often it shows itself in the form of oppression, arrogance, envy, and dogmatism.

Unlimited and Unstoppable!

67272-Kurt-Vonnegut-Quote-We-have-to-continually-be-jumping-off-cliffs.jpg

We are developing in every single moment we exist. Whether we are awake or asleep or even in which form we do exist. Development happens naturally through all we see, all we hear, all we smell, all we experience, a smile we receive makes something happen, a bad word makes something happen. We cannot help it nor can we stop it. We save all those impressions within instants and it feeds our inner system. We collect everything in our files. Where we store it and how we rate an experience is subjective and defines the direction we develop to. But one thing is for sure, we do save everything. Even when we consciously decide not to let something affect our inner world, we save it! Read more ›

What do you see: Chance or Obstacle?

1744080-Wayne-W-Dyer-Quote-If-you-believe-it-will-work-out-you-ll-see.jpg

Do you know that? Either out of the blue or in a steady development new opportunities open up. You are getting offers for a new job or a better position, you see something that makes you think of taking new steps, of learning something new or of going bigger in business. An idea, a vision forms, and is ignited by the enthusiasm it brings. In your excitement, you are talking to a close person and… you only hear reasons why things won’t work out or get counted all the obstacles that “may” occur. Read more ›

Home Is In You

417497-Oliver-Wendell-Holmes-Quote-Where-we-love-is-home-home-that-our.jpg

When I am coming home, I am entering an island. It is a place where I can tell the trouble and struggle of the day to stay outside. There I can be me. I make my home a place that mirrors me. It is decorated, painted, and furnished the way I love it. It is light and sunny, and cozy and comfortable. Of course, I need to go to work, do my shopping, go to appointments and more. But even if I did not have to go outside I would not want to stay inside my apartment all day. I need to breathe in and get in touch with life. And once I return, I enjoy “coming home” even more.

The Challenging Point of No Return

point-of-no-return-quotes-3.jpg

Due to the current situation regarding my job, I want to reblog a post from a couple years ago. Sometimes you are chances offered and since you won’t let them pass you take them. You are supported and learn a lot but after a while, it can happen that it doesn’t turn out what you expected it to be. You don’t feel comfortable and actually, it becomes a pain in the neck more and more. Maybe you even get sick from the expectations you cannot fulfill since everything inside you starts rebelling against what you are supposed to do. Instead of getting better over time, it gets worse and worse. You know that a change is inevitable. The tricky point then is to disappoint those who gave you the chances and supported you. Can you let them behind only that you feel better? Can you be so selfish since you know how they rely on you? Sometimes we have to be selfish to move on. Isn’t it actually selfish, too to stay where you are only because you can avoid a conflict with others or with yourself? Perhaps we are taught to make everybody happy but we can’t because there is always this one person being left unhappy: You!

475543098.jpg

When we are going through life we can find ourselves in situations and circumstances which require our actions. It just happens due to the way we live and also in order to learn and develop from what we experience. Sometimes certain situations not only hold new elements but are simply new and scary all over. We are asked to decide whether staying in the old which we don’t want anymore for a long time already or taking that step into the new completely unknown which feels liberating and deeply scary at the same time. We are aware that we are standing in front of the point of no return.

quote-beyond-a-certain-point-there-is-no-return-this-point-has-to-be-reached-franz-kafka-242325.jpg

It can likely happen that we give in again since feeling guilty and perhaps selfish and taking the responsibility for breaking down everything and affecting the lives of others with it can be overwhelming. It is the moment when we need to step aside and reflect. As long as we are in the midst of the emotional stream we will break down physically and mentally at one point. Maybe we really resign because we cannot take it anymore. But that is exactly that point we need to look closer: Do I want to look back and say “I already made it so far but I did not take that last step only because I was too afraid”?

2178007a17ba15a23c395a1e031a5ac5.jpg

We need to get into an observing and more objective position. We need to remember what brought us so close to that moment of changing our lives. Was it a mood? No, it was an inner conviction. We headed towards that point of no return because of a reason and we need to recall everything. If this recalling fills you again with determination and the knowing that the difficult way again/still feels as the right one then go! Life is more than what was! If we let us direct by our fears or insecurities we will always look at our dreams like at clouds which are blown away by the wind. If we want to live the life we feel as ours inside of us then we need to step up for it. Then we need to take the journey through the thorn bush and risk some scratches. The scratches will heal again but not going through will keep us from ever experiencing the side we already see in our hearts as the life we are supposed to experience.

quote-all-changes-even-the-most-longed-for-have-their-melancholy-for-what-we-leave-behind-anatole-france-10-10-25.jpg

When a change needs to be made it is normal and actually a good sign that we feel emotional because it shows that what was has a place in our hearts and will always have. Life is change. Life is risking something. If we never risk a change how shall we ever know how it feels to really live? What makes us grow is not the security of our comfort zone but the inspiring fresh air of the world that is waiting behind. Our comfort zone is a small limited space within a universe of possibilities. Yes, it needs a bit courage to step over the limit line but you feel it in your heart when it is time to do it. Reflect, remember why you got at this point and motivate yourself for not backing out again! You don’t need to explain it to anyone. It is enough when you feel it deep inside that it is time to leave for more!

quotes-about-moving-forward.jpg

Remember that all you do will lead you towards the destinations you are meant to arrive. The reason you are standing at a turning point is that you have either grown too big or that you learned what you needed and now can continue on the main street again. So, don’t be afraid and take action. Yes, we might disappoint others but as long as we don’t act in deliberately hurting others it is simply life. We are disappointed too and have to learn how to deal with it. Taking responsibility, making that step consciously, and following that path determined will empower you even more because you know that YOU did it. You stepped up for yourself and dared to take action!

Sharing a post from two years ago today:

I am at a point in my life where I find myself at the best place I have ever been. But that is not everything. I find myself at a place where I see that what I believed about life, what I felt for decades in my heart is about to manifest. I perceive myself as a wanderer who lost the compass, then after a while found her direction, and is now standing in front of that path again she recognizes as the path she knew all her life.

You’ve Got Me All Wrong 7 – Your Life Has Nothing To Do With You

Unbenannt

A 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. Isn’t that an amazing proof that we are fully aware of God’s message? If you would like to read the previous parts, you can check out here part 1, part 2,  part 3, part 4, part 5 and part 6.

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

Unbenannt

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.

That moment, when you naturally take a deep breath with a smile on your face.

That moment when you realize that life has so much more to offer than what it demands from you. Read more ›

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 ›

The past weeks and months have not been easy. Not only for me but I noticed that there must have been a general change in the air affecting so many people around me. It appears like a big clearing to me. So many felt challenged in the way things developed, in decisions to make, in things falling apart, in happenings which opened up old gaps and let past memories and feelings rise again, in instantly changing life situations, and in much more. There were states of shock, desperations, breakdowns, and … the rise after the fall. Read more ›

Breakthrough: When Development Causes Pressure

99532-Joyce-Meyer-Quote-Sometimes-when-you-are-the-closest-to-your.jpg

Sometimes it is not difficult to simply present the core message of a post but it can be a challenge to start a post in order to get there. Very often I start in a similar way I did before but then go a different direction – sometimes deliberately and sometimes it just happens. Isn’t it interesting that we start from the same point but end up somewhere else?

quote-constant-development-is-the-law-of-life-and-a-man-who-always-tries-to-maintain-his-dogmas-mahatma-gandhi-10-59-97.jpg

We can observe this every day on ourselves. Although our bodies may do the same things daily or goe from home to work and from work back home daily the being inside that body makes experiences which lead to a different place of feelings or of awareness every single day. Things accumulate, new challenges appear, situations dissolve and give you a feeling of liberation, new people enter your life, others leave it. So much happens during each day. You get a further perspective. You may act slightly different which changes your inner direction. And that although it is always you. We are constantly changing and developing and therefore (mostly unnoticed) we already start from a different level than the day before.

245e761ca71f5cdb8008fcafe39e13a3.jpg

When this goes unnoticed then changes which appear building up more and more around us are even more challenging and more difficult to understand. But they are only a symptom of who we have already become and now we need to make a step out of the old platform up to the new one where we already belong to.

32b8ba370674281dc9012c0012f0c65b--energy-quotes-free-front.jpg

Did I think I would ever go back into a job where I am bound to certain work hours? Never!! But things in my life happened, I developed from them, and here I am. After almost 1 1/2 years I am still working at the same company but meanwhile, my work changed and expanded. Now, I am working more or less full time (in addition to my therapy practice and all that comes with being a mom and with caring for a house and garden) in a field I never worked before and which is still a task to catch up with so much knowledge and taking more and more responsibility. A year before I had never imagined being at that point. I actually did not want a job with so much responsibility again. But I gained experience and self-esteem which let me to that point again. Still the same person but not inside, still the same workplace but not the work. I am still experiencing times when I think this all is too much for me. But when I lift myself above the situation I can clearly see that I am only resisting to go with the flow because of doubting myself. Once I step over this all works smoothly again and most of all my inner river flows calmly again.

2125485dcc89d4876e3800dffec8e454.jpg

Sometimes development is a smooth transition and then again it happens in little or bigger steps – breakthroughs. Very often a breakthrough happens due to a time of accumulating pressure. We cannot keep us from developing and if we are meant for a certain destination we will definitely arrive there. Sometimes we are resisting the development because we are too scared of a change or we have too many self-doubts. But the increasing pressure is actually the proof that we are meant for that change. The longer we wait, the more we try to resist, the more use all our power to lean against that door that is about to open, the bigger the pressure of what cannot be kept from becoming. And once the pressure gets too big to handle we break… perhaps first down and then through!

18d95190af316aff17ddbf631de310f8--keep-going-royals.jpg

We are who we are. The core of our beings is eternal life energy. That core is the reason our physical bodies are alive. And although who we really are never changes the reason we come here does change in order to support the evolution of our soul. Even though the very beginning is a start from the same basic conditions, the journey and the destination are never the same ones. Our soul has a plan for this life and it wants that plan to be realized or it would have missed the purpose of its incarnation. So when you experience a period of increasing pressure then you might have resisted (consciously or unconsciously) going with a natural development. It might be a sign of an upcoming breakthrough. Don’t fear it, but rather look a little closer and you might get there sooner. But I know…. sometimes the pressure needs to become hard enough to take the steps we already know have to be taken!

Letting Go – My Take

melancholy1

Yesterday I shared Neha’s new collaboration invitation:
Calling all Creative Minds/Poets/Artists to a Poetic Collaboration – “Letting Go”

When I saw the topic I thought immediately of an older post in which I shared a poem about Letting Go. Letting Go is not only releasing something that weighed heavily and kept you from living. The process itself is a progress in your own development and growth. It means you have already grown bigger than the suffocating cocoon. That’s why you are ready to break its shell. Letting Go is a process of becoming!  Read more ›

Time Is An Illusion – But You Are Not!

Unbenannt.JPG

Lately, I went up the attic. I checked some furniture and came across items covered with layers of dust. Immediately I had the picture in my mind from the time those items were in use or just bought and now they looked like in a 100-year-sleep. Once favorite toys from the kids, now stored in plastic boxes. It feels peculiar to see them again that way and at the same time remember when they were in use. But they are still the same toys.

enhanced-buzz-20355-1383167504-1.jpg

It reminded me of our own lives, our growth, our changes, our developments. We are children, teenagers, young adults, more experienced adults, then aging, and one day dying. So many stages and once we find ourselves in a next stage, the ones before feel like a movie we once saw. It is hard to believe that we are already so far away from it. That’s when we often ask ourselves where the time has gone.

fe4c2c82d4627422c0d88ec7cb4326bc.jpg

But although we feel different about the child or teenager we were, we still feel it within us. I think that is what makes reflecting so confusing and melancholic. We are still the same but the world around has changed. In our core we are connected with all the stages we ever went through and no development can disconnect us from them. It is the core of our being itself. It is the essence of who we are which incarnated in this growing and aging body. All that we ever experienced from day one is part of who we are today. We never lost the child, the teenager, the student, or young parent we were. It is still there. The soul of each of them is part of us. The caterpillar is the pre-condition for becoming a butterfly!

warrenbuffett1.jpg

It is often said that we should make peace with our inner child. The one we tried to left behind. The one that was hurt and treated unfairly. It may have been that way. But very often the child saw things from a different perspective and now as a grown up, we see a bigger picture. We should call that child again and tell it that all is well. Many things were misunderstandings the child stored in a different way and from there, many things were perceived differently… it defined the path it walked on.

78b73a27c4b80f990da04fb32860036e.jpg

Call the child you were and start playing with it. Tell it how much it is loved and that it is an inseparable and so important part of you because it laid the foundation of who you are today. No one will ever be able to understand your inner child the way you do because it is part of your being. We may have experienced difficulties, sadness, loneliness, injustice, and more. But consider that the experiences of the child gave us the necessary ground to make it through them. If our childhood was bad maybe we treasure even more what we have today. But nevertheless, the childhood was important and however we developed started there.

2949e2925290938bce71eb519f1b3529.jpg

Embrace who you are today completely. That way you embrace all you have ever been. You are an amazing collection of wisdom and achievements, a source of experience, a teacher and student. You are development in action. Nothing that ever was is forlorn. Dust off your attic and celebrate who you are. Time is an illusion – but you are not!

After I was done writing this post I noticed that it turned out as a sequel to last weeks post Forth or Back? 

A sunny Sunday noon. My view goes out towards the mountains. My willow is in full bloom. The birds are singing and life comes back to me. There is a lot of turmoil behind me already and a lot is still in front of me. But at the moment I feel like in the eye of the hurricane. I am content, patient, full of pictures for a new future. At the moment, the heaviness of the past weeks and months is falling off. I feel light and like moving towards a door which has been already open and only waiting for me to get there.  Read more ›

Forth or Back?

IMG_2541.JPG

We all are so often caught in our daily obligations or in the struggles we find in life. Even though we may know that after those struggles there comes the reward but being in the midst of them can affect our whole system, thinking, and feelings.

hard-roads.jpg

The longer it takes and the more burdening the situation becomes the harder it is to look beyond the situation. The path towards a goal can hold so many single paths within which are meant to be walked. So many obstacles are to overcome. It is like riding a bus. There are several stops until you reach your destination. The road may be bumpy and curvy at times and although you know why you went on that bus sometimes the only thing you feel is the sickness in your stomach which makes it difficult to be joyful because of the destination you are heading to.

56e2efd56e5c63b976643a09047da501.jpg

It is nothing new that we need to change something or go through changes in order to get to a new place. The more difficult the circumstances are the more we need to remember what we started this journey for. When all is getting harder and harder, when consequences are right in front us which will change life dramatically, when we see that we need to let go of something in order to grab that next liana to swing on then we often ask ourselves if this all is worth the pain. Those reflections are so very important. On one hand, they can tell you clearly what you don’t want to lose. Or they can confirm your decision and give you the power to keep going! You have that chance now and you don’t know if you ever get a new one in case you don’t take this one. Mostly those times when the pressure is building up and we are forced to review everything again is that time when we are the closest to an important change or insight! The increased insecurity feels like standing at an edge and it is either to jump or to turn around.

It can be so difficult when you are standing on that edge because sometimes, either way, there is no way back. But however, even going back holds a change because you need to consider clearly why you are going back and that creates a different attitude. You look differently even to a known situation or to known circumstances. Although it may look like you are not changing anything something did change because you decided to go back for a particular reason. And this is the crucial point! Whatever decision you make when you are standing at that edge, know why you are making it! Don’t do it out of a resignation. Do it out of a clear intention. You were not led to that edge accidentally but in order to develop a clarity and therefore a developed attitude. You are evolving. As I said, those edges can show up several times during the same journey towards one and the same goal. We arrive at many crossroads and need to decide which one to choose. We need to be ready for that goal and all those bus-stops help us to grow for it.

We are no super heroes and sometimes even the most longed change can look like the biggest mountain. Take a time-out, meditate, recharge in nature, talk to others, spoil yourself a bit, and do everything that makes you smile. Because the most important thing is to detach from the situation in order to be you and to feel you. Only when you break out of that turmoil of thoughts you can feel yourself again. That is necessary to regain power and connect with yourself in order to hear and feel your inner voice which gave you that first impulse to start the journey. We are only insecure when we lose contact to ourselves. Remember there was a reason why you started the journey. Remember it and feel it again and after all that happened since you went on that path see how far you have come. Whatever you learned, whatever insight you gained is important for you to decide whether you stay on the bus or if you get off and take the next one back! There is nothing bad about getting back because you learned a lot on that trip which already changed something anyway! It is your path and your decision! And it is no one else’s business!

Unlimited Time – Blessing Or Curse?

1962-Bruce-Lee-Quote-The-key-to-immortality-is-first-living-a-life.jpg

Lately at night in the bathroom, I looked into the mirror and welcomed the new wrinkles which joined me secretly during the day. While brushing my teeth I started pondering … uhm… yes, while brushing my teeth I am often pondering about a lot of things. There is not a lot you can do in those two to three minutes and so my thoughts start traveling and boy, they can get far in that short time…!!! But back to the topic! Read more ›

The Challenging Point of No Return

point-of-no-return-quotes-3.jpg

It is really funny! Sunday is usually the day when I prepare my Monday post (not the one for the next day but for the following week later 😁). So on that Sunday when I was pondering what I could write about nothing was already on my mind. Hmm… so I was sitting there staring at my laptop, fingers on the keyboard and ready to type but…

giphy.gif

empty spaces. That is the moment when I start plan be which is: stop thinking! I stop pondering but look up and say: “Please, tell me what I shall write about!” That way the channel is open.  Then I am doing ordinary things but look out for signs of inspiration. Prior that morning, I made a backup of my laptop. I saw my external memory still lying there and… here we go!

When we are going through life we can find ourselves in situations and circumstances which require our actions. It just happens due to the way we live and also in order to learn and develop from what we experience. Sometimes certain situations not only hold new elements but are simply new and scary all over. We are asked to decide whether staying in the old which we don’t want anymore for a long time already or taking that step into the new completely unknown which feels liberating and deeply scary at the same time. We are aware that we are standing in front of the point of no return.

quote-beyond-a-certain-point-there-is-no-return-this-point-has-to-be-reached-franz-kafka-242325.jpg

It can likely happen that we give in again since feeling guilty and perhaps selfish and taking the responsibility for breaking down everything and affecting the lives of others with it can be overwhelming. It is the moment when we need to step aside and reflect. As long as we are in the midst of the emotional stream we will break down physically and mentally at one point. Maybe we really resign because we cannot take it anymore. But that is exactly that point we need to look closer: Do I want to look back and say “I already made it so far but I did not take that last step only because I was too afraid”?

2178007a17ba15a23c395a1e031a5ac5.jpg

We need to get into an observing and more objective position. We need to remember what brought us so close to that moment of changing our lives. Was it a mood? No, it was an inner conviction. We headed towards that point of no return because of a reason and we need to recall everything. If this recalling fills you again with determination and the knowing that the difficult way again/still feels as the right one then go! Life is more than what was! If we let us direct by our fears or insecurities we will always look at our dreams like at clouds which are blown away by the wind. If we want to live the life we feel as ours inside of us then we need to step up for it. Then we need to take the journey through the thorn bush and risk some scratches. The scratches will heal again but not going through will keep us from ever experiencing the side we already see in our hearts as the life we are supposed to experience.

quote-all-changes-even-the-most-longed-for-have-their-melancholy-for-what-we-leave-behind-anatole-france-10-10-25.jpg

When a change needs to be made it is normal and actually a good sign that we feel emotional because it shows that what was has a place in our hearts and will always have. Life is change. Life is risking something. If we never risk a change how shall we ever know how it feels to really live? What makes us grow is not the security of our comfort zone but the inspiring fresh air of the world that is waiting behind. Our comfort zone is a small limited space within a universe of possibilities. Yes, it needs a bit courage to step over the limit line but you feel it in your heart when it is time to do it. Reflect, remember why you got at this point and motivate yourself for not backing out again! You don’t need to explain it to anyone. It is enough when you feel it deep inside that it is time to leave for more!

Remember that all you do will lead you towards the destinations you are meant to arrive. So, don’t be afraid and take action. Taking responsibility, making that step consciously, and following that path determined will empower you even more because you know that YOU did it!

Whatever this all has to do with my external memory… at least it inspired this post!

I am at a point in my life where I find myself at the best place I have ever been. But that is not everything. I find myself at a place where I see that what I believed about life, what I felt for decades in my heart is about to manifest. I perceive myself as a wanderer who lost the compass, then after a while found her direction, and is now standing in front of that path again she recognizes as the path she knew all her life.

God Did Not Mean To Solve Our Problems…

6a00e0099839558833015432530641970c-pi

… BUT TO GUIDE US SOLVING THEM OURSELVES! THE ONLY THING WE NEED IS FAITH!

How often are we raising our hands and crying to God for help? But what do we do next? Are we waiting that Gods waves His magic wand and fixes everything just like a Genie “your wish is my demand”? Do we really think we realize the whole picture of the situation in which we might only play a tiny role? The situation might be part of a much bigger plan. Now if things do not change or dissolve as we desire we get the idea that God left us alone and is not interested in us. That is such a big misunderstanding. 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.

In Love and Light

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 ›

The Magic of Intuition

You were about to go for something that objectively looked right but for no explanation, you had a confusing feeling and you decided to back off. Looking back you found out that it would have gotten you in big trouble.  Or also the other way around. You are planning something and just feel the way to achieve it without ever doing it before and it worked out! Intuition is something we cannot explain. It is that inner alarm system to keep us safe or which shines a light on the path we should take on our way. Read more ›

The Challenge of Growth!

shattered-bulb.jpg

Last week I wrote about the seeds we spread constantly through our thoughts, feelings, and actions. I told how they are responsible (consciously or not) for the miracles we are experiencing in life and that most of them are co-created when many put the same or similar conviction into their beliefs and convictions. After I had scheduled that post a friend of mine sent me the quote above. It is again about that little seed that carries a garden of wonders inside. But there is a different message behind.

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 ›

What makes me think lot these days are the tough tests the kids in the UK have to pass. My soul sister Ritu posted a lot about it lately since she is involved as a mom but also as a teacher. As far as I understood the government changed the guidelines too short noticed and now the students have the toughest time to pass those advanced tests. Teachers are struggling because they need to follow the orders but are heartbroken seeing good and diligent kids being frustrated and completely discouraged. The pressure to fit into a certain picture already starts to shape them in such young years.  Read more ›

Focus On The Outcome!

There was barely a post which I wrote so highly inspired. On one side there is last week’s award post about the Room 101 Award and on the other side a lecture of the amazing Gregg Braden. Both happened on the same day and goes exactly into the same direction. It is meant to be that I write about it.

The rules of the Room 101 Award say that the nominee has to mention 5 things they want to banish into Room 101. In honor of the founder of any award I try to stick to the rules and started to ponder about those 5 things. I noticed that I couldn’t get into the flow. I did not feel inspired and felt like standing at a dead-end. But then I realized that the reason was that I tried to find something within me that I already had banished from my life successfully: Focusing on the negative! Read more ›

Mind And Soul – Buddies For A Lifetime

Lately I read a post of Amanda’s. She wrote a letter to a close friend who is distancing from her while in serious struggles. Amanda reached a point where she needed to let her friend just go her way which is a big insight to accept. At times we simply have to let others find their way even when we see that they are hitting the wall again and again. What are words of use when they are not heard? And what are heard words of use when they are not felt? Read more ›

The Greatest Blessing Can Become The Strongest Chain!

What means the most to you in your life, might be the first you need to detach from!

When I had the idea of that quote I immediately thought of  a very important impact in my own life which helped me to believe in myself again but made me dependent at the same time.

Recently I wrote an email to my best friend in which I told him that I am not planning to come to California for a while. I finally noticed that I was too attached to his support and attention.

Those of you who read my book also read about my friend. He was the one that made me facing my fears and believing in myself. The same happened to him. We already went to school together and a few years ago we got in touch again via email when both of us hit rock bottom. We developed a wonderful friendship and grew on sharing our thoughts, happenings in life, and how we dealt with it. But since he started a relationship with a very jealous woman, he began more and more to hide our friendship and keep me as a secret. I understood that it was not an easy situation. Therefore I kept myself in the background, did not show up but was there immediately when I was needed. I played this game for a few years and fought for this friendship this way. I should have noticed that fighting for a friendship already shows that something is wrong.

Meanwhile he even lies at his girlfriend and finds excuse to spend time with me and my husband. That was too much. It hurts that I have to shut my mouth and be hidden like a dark secret. I felt abused. Also honesty is very important to me. I don’t want anybody to lie because of me and I am not willing to make myself part of a lie anymore.

After four years the moment has arrived when I noticed that the origin of my breakthrough and transformation process had become a new chain in my life. I finally was courageous and frustrated enough to tell him that I won’t be part of a false game and that I am not willing to be made somebody I am not. Because this secretiveness only makes it something forbidden. I have to detach myself from a chain of disappointment in order to look at the situation with fresh eyes. I don’t quit the friendship but my part I played in it for the last four years. This decision made me build up a new strength and already loosens the first knot.

My friend and I have been going through similar situations and fought against similar inner ghosts. We understood each other in core which was responsible for our fast and straight development. I am endlessly thankful for this friendship, for what my friend has brought up inside of me, for every laughter and every tear, and also for the process I am in now.  This way my friend (unconsciously and unknowing) helps me again to find into an independent life and so do I help him in taking action. Since I changed and everything around me has changed I have to change the way I embed this friendship into my life. I have to let go the old in order to let unfold something new.

One wonderful event in life can open doors and hearts. It can strengthen us and can give us insights about ourselves we had never seen without. But we have to be careful not to attach our new ability to an event, a person or a circumstance. Becoming attached means that there still is some fear or doubt left not to make it without the person or circumstance. But whatever we discover through that happening has always been there. The happening was only the entry  to remind us. We will still keep everything inside of us with or without the cause of our awakening. It is another journey to find that out. Sometimes helpful circumstances become misunderstandings out of which we learn again.

We are always able to make the decision of detaching ourselves from everything that keeps us stuck. Often it doesn’t mean to break up with someone but to change the way we look at the situation, the person, or the relationship in order to be connected by heart not by a string.

Love doesn’t judge but perceives, does not ask for something but receives in giving.Love is not jealous nor possessive but generous. Love doesn’t need to be right but respects the path of other people. Love simply is and acts out of nothing else but love. Because love is all we have to give in the end. And giving from a place of love always nurtures the love inside and around us. With true love in our hearts we never run the risk to get attached to anything because where there is love there is no fear but unlimited faith. So when we feel ourselves depending to something or someone in order to feel happy, free and strong ask yourself what you really fear. Whatever opened you heart only reminded you on your own abilities and power which have always been there.

In Love and Light!
