Stardust And Spirit – Oneness In All That Is

ownquotes.com

“Humans are made up of more than 90 percent stardust. Most of the body’s atoms and molecules were once formed in stars.”

A few weeks ago, I heard this in a movie, and it intrigued me. As a result, I came across some interesting articles on the Internet, for example, one from the Stuttgarter Nachrichten. Here is a short excerpt:

The specific chemical composition turns stardust into a diamond, stone or a plant, a bacterium, insect or a “Homo sapiens”. The cells in our bodies, the oxygen we breathe, the carbon and nitrogen in our tissues, the calcium in our bones – all come from stardust produced many billions of years ago and continuing to be generated.

On a sidenote: This quote was created before I wrote my post #JustAThought… The Moment of Enlightenment. I just thought it goes along with it so well. It is a journey to get closer to the idea of who we really are. But real understanding may only happen after the journey was concluded.

Why Does God Let Bad Things Happen?

Two years ago, I wrote a post series “You’ve Got Me All Wrong” that already addressed this topic. But the circumstances we are in these days makes the voices louder again. Why does God let violence, sadness, accidents happen? Why doesn’t God keep us from harm? Has He left us alone in those times? Why does He allow the current situation? Why does He punish us?

You Are The Light

Light of Lights please shine
Your fire every day
Through and from our hearts

Repeat these three lines and see what happens. At first sight, it may appear you need to sit back and wait until something is done to you or someone needs to do something to you. But something different happens while reading or saying these words. You reflexively open up your heart which is all it needs to let your being fill your room.

God’s energy is nothing separated from us which we need to add. It is something that already exists inside of us. But we are so used to believe that all good things are coming from outside of us that we forget to look inside.

When you ask the light of lights to shine, YOU shine.
In opening your heart you only activate the flow.

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 ›

Love is patient, Love is kind…

love-timeline-cover-17

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

You’ve Got Me All Wrong” 5 – Love Is All There Is

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 and part 4 Read more ›

Shine your light. Let it illuminate your path through life and share it with everybody who crosses your way. A smile is less arduous and needs fewer muscles than a grumpy face. It heals you and plants healing seeds in others. There was something planted inside your heart before you opened your eyes for the first time. You are meant to make it blossom while we walk on this earth and the fruits are supposed to be shared. Fruits, only the individual you can produce. Your inner sun makes the fruit grow and your deeds are the fertilizer.

In Defeating Fear I Am Releasing Me

81619-Michael-Jordan-Quote-Any-fear-is-an-illusion-You-think-something.jpgI dare to say that fear is the origin of most or even all of our problems and troubles. Fear is a blocking filter built by the mind and it keeps us from connecting with the source of power inside of us. Peace, understanding, development, happiness – to sum it up – love, comes from within. Only if we open up the pipeline to that source, which is the origin of our being, we are able to live the life we are supposed to. We need to identify fear as a lie. Fear is a thought, an imagination and nothing else. It never tells the truth and is a big cheater.  Read more ›

When the energy can flow freely through the body it provides every single fiber in our body from head to toe with all it needs to be strong, happy, and healthy. Then you are in balance, healthy, and in peace. Then you don’t worry but simply take every step that is necessary to take through this journey. Then your physical being is aligned with your spiritual being. But seriously, who of us is in that state constantly? Read more ›

Be Authentic – Be You – Be Love!

Lately, I came across this topic several times and thought it would make sense to repost an article I wrote almost 2 years ago:

Life isn’t about being someone we think we should be only because it sounds good because others want us to be, or in order to fit into a certain image of society. A faked personality only confuses the people around you and yourself over time more and more because the real identity gets lost.

Twin Souls – When Love Incarnates

Instead of a song, I want to share a video today which touched my heart to its core. I wrote about twin flames in my Tuesday poem and was looking for a fitting song. I came across this. The most wonderful and deepest touching explanation about twin souls, their origin, their journey, and their purpose. I had tears in my eyes and goosebumps all over throughout the video. It is so profound and you will feel a deep truth within about it. The video is only 5 minutes. The rest is end credits. Enjoy! Read more ›

The Magic of Connection

connection-004.jpg

We are connecting with each other in various ways daily. More consciously in our jobs, with family or friends, and more unconsciously in the bus, in the supermarket,… But there is something that happens beyond a visible or physical connection. There is something we feel before the first word is said, often even before the first eye contact. It is the radiation we feel about each other. That first impression. It may not give us a clear picture – because how we perceive a person says more about ourselves than about them – but it is very important for the way that encounter continues. It is like extending invisible tentacles in order to scan the other person.

7f6e189b82bccab78c4a51f68cbff16d.jpg

“Love at first sight” is such a mystery! When the radiated energies are strongly matching then the tentacles of each other have already connected before we realize it. That also happens when we “feel” someone near us turn around and there they are! The more a person “shines” the more we can feel their presence without seeing them.

d8a5923ae999040bcd9e3e4bf6ee1a14.jpg

First and foremost those connections are spiritual connections. Our spiritual being is unlimited and not depending on the range of our bodies. Even incarnated its senses overcome the physical limits. Soul mates recognize each other on the spiritual level immediately and feel familiar with each other without any explanation. Modern technology makes it so much easier to connect with our spiritual families or kindred spirits these days.

law-of-attraction.jpg

That is what astounds most of us about social media and most of all about blogging. I believe that thousands of miles apart we are connecting through our hearts in the first place and the mind cannot help it but follows the heart! The law of attraction works even better on this platform where our minds are not able to judge anyone by their outer appearance due to the physical absence!

earth-hour-2009.jpg

I am here on WordPress for more than 2 1/2 years and I have experienced often from the first interaction with someone if this is going to be a friendship and closer connection. We are more open here in a place where we feel safer to share our thoughts, experiences, and feelings. That makes us transparent and the real being shines through a lot more. We feel with each other and we are accompanying each other. We inspire and encourage each other. Perhaps we are not always understood and we have different opinions but what counts much more is that we are heard and taken serious! This is what so many are missing in real life! We are there for each other when someone is not doing well and that got proved several times!

I have never been afraid of meeting my blogger friends. I know there are some who are skeptic about that: “What if they are not who I thought they were?” I dare to say that those who are not afraid of meeting each other definitely are the way they are on their blogs. I feel blessed that I met several bloggers over time and it was like meeting old friends I just haven’t seen for a long time. It felt like a family gathering and the mind got confirmed what the heart already knew!

Connecting by the heart and creating like-minded groups is such a wonderful thing when it is happening in the way we are experiencing it here on WordPress. And as I always say: Our community is a role model for the world out there!

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 ›

You – The Candle In The Dark

candle-03

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

20160925_183746What I enjoy about it is the moment when getting from the cold into the warmth. That cozy moment when cuddling into a warm blanket. When you get inside and a cup of coffee or tea is waiting for you. I noticed that temperatures of 12 °C (55 °F) in the morning already gives me chills after the 30 °C (90 °F) only a week before. During winter we will get down to freezing temperatures and 12 °C will appear very warm again. Funny, how subjective we experience this.qs_322716e6477946fb95dbc200d50ae64f

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

An example how important contrast is for example in photography.

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

the_light_of_the_soul_by_lio_sun-d5nwqf6

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

hiker-at-sunset-with-journey-quote

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

l_c859fb40-fe69-11e1-a274-3158ed000007

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

Thoughts About The Soul

Do I really know what the soul is? No. I have a feeling, a strong feeling. I have a belief, a strong belief. But when I think back, that belief and feeling about what soul is has changed or at least, has become a bigger picture over the years. I don’t know if I will ever get the whole picture. I might only see it once I get rid of my body and merge again with my source. I want to share some thoughts about the soul with you and I don’t know yet where I will end up.

48f74c770683b00a257d8eb7dcc60a21.jpg

I love to talk about the soul. Talking about the soul already makes me feel powerful and peaceful at the same time. There is a saying that the strength lies in serenity and it is definitely true. The soul doesn’t need to proof anything. It knows it all. It doesn’t need to convince the ego that the ego is not slightly half as wise as the soul is. It makes no sense because the ego doesn’t even want to understand.

Wait…. the ego, the soul…. and I? That makes me think: Are there three? Because when I can decide between listening to the ego or the wisdom of my soul then “I” would be a third party. Yes, I believe that the “I” is an aspect of that huge formation called soul. It is that aspect which was sent down to earth in order to experience itself and in order to remember who it is.

soulmate-and-life-partners.jpg

There are many aspects of the soul incarnating at the same time – our soul mates! And if our soul’s plan has it written in our incarnation contract, then we are even granted to meet our twin soul. I believe that twin souls or twin flames are literally two halves of this soul’s aspect. That’s why they feel more familiar with each other than with anyone else. They understand each other without words and they recognize each other immediately. They have everything in common for a solid base but each of them has exactly the perfect things to add in order to make both feeling whole.

clouds-808748_1280.jpg

When I consciously align with my soul then I feel a security and strength coming up within me. I feel surrounded and fulfilled with light. It is a feeling of knowing that all is well – no matter how it is. Because otherwise it wouldn’t be as it is. It is a feeling of being guided and watched over me. A feeling of love and serenity but also the inner motivation to go for what I feel as my purpose, my dream, my order! And whatever I feel it might be, gives sense to my life. Then I feel where I belong to in this life – I feel my place in this world. Is there anything for enhancing than feeling on track with who you are?

cosmic_beauty.jpg

I don’t know, but I believe that the soul I belong to is part of the source. Eventually, we all together are the source – the incarnated aspects of a soul, all souls as part of the source. In my book I’m Free I explain that with a cake. All the ingredients you need are mixed together thoroughly. Whatever piece you cut out has the same composition. Even a crumb has that same composition. We all carry that divine spark within. That’s why  we are all the same in our core. We have the same origin, we all enter a body, we all are destined to leave it again. We all are exploring this physical life within our different ages. We all have something to give. We all find limitations. We all are meant to overcome them in a unique way. We all have unique stories. We all are breathing the same air, need food and water to nurture this body. We all are walking on the same road but moving differently. We are all one – one energy. It cannot be separated, it only comes in different forms. But we are one energy and that’s what mankind needs to understand. We all have this creative power within but only when we consciously unite it we can create great things for everyone. Then we are having a world honoring the things we have in common and even more what the individual has to give in its uniqueness.

tumblr_ly1y39XRCY1qbosmzo1_1280.jpg

Then everybody will be free to fulfill their purpose which again we basically have in common: Experiencing this physical life in its fullness for the sake of everyone!

God Is Spotless and So Are You!

We all carry our backpack. We filled it with a variety of things. From all that we experience, we take something along and put it in our backpack. When we are in a situation that feels like something we already experienced, we check our backpack and take out the insight we once gained in order to deal with that situation in a better way.

Heavyweight-Backpack.jpg

Sadly we collect so many painful memories, bitterness, resentments in that backpack. That is what makes it heavy and what makes us walk slower under its weight. Often we cannot move the way we want because the weight of the backpack limits our mobility. It can even cause physical disorders like back pain, muscle tensions, short breath, joint issues, and much more.

When we look at it that way we see of how little use it is to carry around pain or disappointments from the past. It doesn’t change the past but therefore, it destroys the present. Easier said than done, right? Really?

tumblr_m5cjpb1pts1qa9jwno1_r1_250.gif

Who you really are is a divine being born into a human body in order to experience your existence with more senses. Only in that physical body, you can touch, breathe, smell, and feel all the variety of emotions. It is like the suit of Iron Man. It has more functions than the person within who directs that iron suit. And so it is with your spirit who needs a body to have more possibilities to experience itself. But the suit is not the person and the spirit is not the body. That iron suit can become a prison instead of a tool if we don’t see the misunderstanding. Who you really are is that spirit who simply identifies so doubtless with its body. Over time, it believes that it is the body, the pain it experienced, and the emotions it feels. But who you are is not the suit that houses you.

purple_morning_glory.jpg

Being aware that you are nothing that is part of this physical world makes it so clear that all the pain you experience and the heavy weight you carry around is only an illusion you started to build up through your mind. You are spirit, you are divine, you are pure wisdom. But you want to remember that you are all that. That is the reason why you came into this world. You want to remember your light.

2455256.jpg

When you realize that your experiences, insights, and also scars are part of your backpack but not of yourself then you can simply take this backpack off your shoulders. Open it up and look into it. Throw out the heavy load or take the backpack completely off. You cannot accidentally throw away a beautiful memory.The insights learned lessons, and joyful experiences are never in a backpack. They have the same energy as your divine being has. All the beautiful things which cause feelings of joy and enthusiasm are of the same energy as you are. That is, why it feels so good. It is like you. That’s why they simply strike a chord within you but they don’t burden. Such experiences merge with you and make you stronger. You gain energy. What is pain for? Actually only to show you the darkness in order to see your light even better.

IMG_4959.JPG

You are not what you carry along. You are not, what you experience, you are not what you think, and most of all you are not what you see. But what you experience, think, and see is the blessing you are gifted with in order to feel alive and in order to fulfill your purpose. You are a shining being full of love and perfect in its composition. Because you have the same composition as the source that created you. You are part of that source, a drop of the ocean we call God. God is spotless – and so are you!

Reincarnation: What is the reason we incarnate?

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

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

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

26_Fallen Angel_unknown

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

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

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

duality-1

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

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

Soul Mates – More Than Just The Love Of A Lifetime

My wonderful Australian friend with Swiss roots, Sandra of A Momma’s View published a post about soul mates.  We were talking a little about it and we agreed that I will repost my Soul Mate post from February of this year.  But due to the amazing experiences I made during the past months I completely worked over it. So whoever wrote the first one, please check this one out too!

The soul mate topic is always present. Through modern technology,  the internet, our social media networks it is so much easier today to connect with the whole world. And it is even more stunning to connect with people we might have never seen before but who feel so very familiar. I found many friends here on WordPress who for sure I consider as my soul mates. This is what I believe about soul mates: Read more ›

Simply Love – A Request Post

As you all know I love to write about love. I post articles, poems, and quotes about love and I cannot get enough. The more I write the more I unfold it within myself. The more it unfolds within me the more I need to share it again. It is a wonderful spiral. After I participated in the Non – Love in More Than Ten Sentences Challenge Izza from Touch Of My Saint asked me to write a post about love. Thank you, Izza, for this request. I am always happy when I know what my friends wish to read about.

Sometimes I am having a hard time to still remember what I did not write yet about love. But then again love is so much and so different in its hugeness for each one of us that there can never be written too much! 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 ›

The Miracle of Liberation!

How do you define miracle? I’d say that usually we mean an unexpected happening of luck, right? But my personal definition is: Miracles are happenings, encounters, twists or coincidences which we cause by the way we think, act and by how we apply our experiences into our lives.

Yesterday I experienced such a miracle. The miracle of breaking free.  Those are my favorite miracles. An experience I already had  many times in my life. I was completely under the weather. I was thrown off the track!  Yes, even Mrs. Positive has breakdowns at times. But they are OK. They always come when I am about to shake off an old chain. Read more ›

“They are feeling the feeling as if…”

Just before I started writing this post I got a Twitter message in which I was invited to watch a fantastic video of the great Gregg Braden. I saw him at a workshop in Pasadena last October and was completely caught by his presence and his message. He explained perfectly how the heart has memory cells just like the brain. Therefore it has a brain of its own (actually each organ has but the heart has the most). This made me understand in a very physical explanation why heart and mind are often pulling in different directions but also why they have so much power when aligned. Things we actually already perceive as an inner knowing. Read more ›

Real Love is a Condition not an Emotion!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Love is patient, Love is kind…

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

Looking out for a helpful Christmas gift?

I'm Free English

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

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

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

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

Or at my publisher:

I’m Free – German and English edition

My dear friends!

I know that some of you already read (or are about to read) my book I’m Free – Awareness of Who You Are by Discovering Who You Are Not! I also got some very lovely feedbacks. Thanks to all of you. Now I would ask you a favour. I would love you to write me a little review on any online platform you prefer and/or rate the book. I would appreciate it a lot. It would be of great support for the book and very helpful for other readers to make the decision to buy it.

For those who read the German edition, you could leave a comment on Amazon.

For those of you who read the English version you could for example go to Amazon as well.

But also on Goodreads your words are very welcome!

And of course, if you did not notice I’m Free by today, you should definitely take a look. One of my readers recently said, it had become his bible. If you like it, then perhaps you know people who need a little lift, or people who destroy themselves but are not able to step out of their self-destructive circle. They also don’t want to talk about it or close themselves to the good advises of others. Often it is easier for them to take a look into a book with the topic of their problem. Then they don’t feel forced or feel they had to make a commitment.

Christmas is coming. So perhaps that’s an idea as well!

Have a wonderful day!

I’m Free – Awareness of Who You Are by Discovering Who You Are Not!

Are you yearning for the fulfillment of your dreams and wishes? Do you feel limited by circumstances and people? “I’m Free” shows what keeps us from living our full potential and how to free ourselves to be who we really are and always wanted to be. Whatever happens in life doesn’t mean we can’t be happy! We are not the victims of our circumstances but the masters who only need to figure out how to use happenings and conditions for our development and benefit.

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!
