"...most of us are scared of the unknown, no matter how beautiful it could be. We are dreaming, right? We say "one day I´ll be or do this" ... then we wait. We postpone. We find excuses.
We do it because we are scared. We rather stay where we are, even though we are not happy. But it is okay cause it´s comfortable and known to us. We literally kill our desires every day by making decesions based on what is and not on what could be!!!
We are on autopilot, thinking the same thoughts over and over, reacting to the same things (news, job etc) and we are losing control. We are like a robot.
Instead we could make some time to CREATE, to create consciously, to imagine more, to visualize our best life a bit more. We think it is not possible because of our environment, cause "hey there is nobody in my family who is truly happy with their job and living their purpose... who am I to question anything and start over?!"
If you are part of this community - love to call us family lately - then you must know that our core message is to learn to live a conscious, meaningful and fulfilled life because this is how we define true SUCCESS. These three words are very important to me and resonate with my heart deeply. And I am absolutely convinced that it is possible for all of us to live consciously, to find meaning and feel fulfilled on a daily basis.
Once I´ve heared a sentence like this "happiness is to be found within but the feeling may come and go... But if you have found true meaning in your life, you will be able to navigate through any challenge and happiness will join you on the road"- I love this perspective!
At this point I would like to explain the words: CONSCIOUS, MEANINGFUL, FULFILLED
I believe that "leading and living a CONSCIOUS life" means simply not being on autopilot. Not being held as hostage to our old programs and conditioning.
It means to become self-aware about our belief systems, our choices, how we observe life, what attitudes and perspectives we hold and why. Most likely all these PATTERNS & BELIEFS are limiting and we are not even aware of them, as they were passed on from our parents into our subconscious memory. All this stored information lives in us and we haven´t even questioned them. We have been living on autopilot and we automatically act out of our parents beliefs EXCEPT WE SEEK NEW ONES.
Living consciously also means to make conscious decisions every day from a place of love, not fear. And last but not least it means to be willing to create change and long lasting transformation in our lives because we want it. We are dedicated to do the work (the self-love work, the shadow work, the spiritual work) and break generational patterns because we love ourselves enough to do so...
Have you ever asked yourself "Do I live a meaningful life?" - I do not know what truly gives MEANING to you in life but I hope you feel fulfilled doing what you are doing. I hope you feel like you are living your purpose and the work you do every day is meaningful to you personally. Because you love it. Because you are passionate about it. Because you feel aligned with it.
I am not a purpose coach but I think it is the hardest thing for all of us to find out what our purpose is. But it is our job to do so! It is a brave choice indeed to get curious about ourselves, about life and explore all hidden sides of our way of being. Embodying self-love and practising self-love consciously every day plays a huge role in our decision making process. Whether we choose and allow ourselves to slow down a bit, to become more present, to become more conscious, to dig deeper into our hearts, desires, talents, hobbies, anything that sets our soul on fire and awakes hope and creates meaning in our life...
I hope that you are FULFILLED. Full of love towards yourself. Filled with passion and compassion. Full of confidence and trust. Filled with joy and gratitude.
This is the life I want you to have, because you deserve it. This is the life I am choosing to live day by day. A conscious life of meaning and fulfillment. So, to answer the question:
"who am I to question anything and start over?!"
You are a Life Designer
You are the conscious creator of your own experience.
You are the person you want to be NOW.
You have always access to your ideal self and you can always
choose to think, feel, act like the person you want to be.
I am curious whether these words resonated with you, if you feel like you already live consciously but still searching for meaning and trying to figure out stuff? Anything that comes to your mind, share with me, with us.
Meditation has changed the game for me. It has been integrated in my routine since 2017. I was a restless, always-on-the-go type of person, it wasn´t easy for me to just sit down and BE.
Until I´ve literally FORCED MYSELF. Until I´ve realised it is my ego that wants me to be alert, in control all the time. Until I´ve consciously created a so called MEDITATION CORNER in my home.
It´s beautiful, peaceful, a clean space to sit, pray and contemplate...
"Meditation is always a different experience"
Forcing myself to just BE was more than necessary, it was back then when I started this creative journey, producing content, putting myself out there, showing up every single day...
Things started to go OUT OF CONTROL, there were so many new things and challenges I had to face all alone, there were confusing moments, it was easy to get lost and distracted.
My soul was craving for more CLARITY and slowing down.
I started to do yoga and every time I finished, I went to my meditation corner to sit calmly even though it felt strange, even though I had no idea how to meditate "properly".
Until I´ve realized there is no proper way, I FOUND MY OWN WAY TO "CONNECT".
CLARITY. CONFIDENCE. EASE.
Kind of my favourite words. We all ARE these words. But not always. Meditation gives us access to them, to feel them, to be them, to live through them.
When I meditate, I am not always able to get to a state where I am thoughtless or do not feel my nose and the space around me. Yes, I had those deep experiences too but I learned to not put any pressure on myself. I learned to just sit and BE with myself and any thought or emotion that comes to the surface. I let them come and go. That´s it.
On the other hand, I have to admit that I am also a huge fan of self -soothing, GUIDED MEDITATIONS, where I focus on a voice, on the high vibrating words, I feel elevated emotions and I am able to connect to my HIGHER SELF and FEEL MY OWN LOVE. Nothing is more beautiful than that. This is my favourite type of meditation, to connect with my ideal self and my desire on purpose.
Every day I envision the best version of me, my ideal and DESIRED STATE so I can begin/continue my day in the absolute utmost faith that all is working out for my highest good.
Meditation, IMAGINING OUR FUTURE SELF is the first step for LONG-LASTING CHANGE and transformation. It helps us focus our attention on the powerful now, so we can get out of old and familiar thought patterns. It helps us restructure our brain, be more conscious, be the observer of our thoughts and our lives.
Share your experiences in the comments with us. So curious how meditation works for each of us, how can be make it a fun, soothing experience so we want to come back to it more often. And remember: Meditation can be anything! For me it is dancing sometimes, walking my dogs, having sex, cooking a new meal and so on. :)
You know I´m a big fan of meditation. Actually, my two favourite manifestation tools and practises for livin la vida loca are meditation and dance. I consciously use these tools to connect with source energy aka with my highest self and tap into my inner wisdom. When I meditate I feel peace, clarity and endless love. When I dance freely, I feel alive, sexy, fun and confident. What a perfect balance in energy. What a flow!
Thankfully there are so many wonderful tools we can use to feel better, to wind down, to turn off our chatty mind and utilize focused thought and energy to create. We have the freedom of choice between painting, singing, dancing, meditating, running, cooking, masturbating and the list goes on.
ALWAYS CHOOSE WHAT FEELS BEST FOR YOU IN THE MOMENT. There is no right or wrong, no technique or tool is better than the other. You choose.
You do not need to create a routine right away, you do not need to be too strickt about it and you definitely do not need to set some kind of daily goal to follow through just because somebody told you so. It will only exhaust you, it might even make you judgemental about yourself if you cannot keep your promise. There are more than enough rules out there, you do not need to create any more of them in your own precious world.
I want you to BE EASY about it. I want you to FLOW and listen every day to yourself. I want you to ask yourself every day:
"What do I truly need; How can I nurture my body and soul; How can I make myself happy today?" - These questions will put you at ease and make you realize that you are there for yourself no matter what you did or did not do! This is so important, and again we are back to the core of it all, which is SELF-LOVE. If you truly love yourself, practise and embody self-love every day then you will be more playful about everything in life. You will not take things, including yourself too seriously, cause guess what... nothing matters too much ;) - You can drop the resistance right now!
If you love yourself deeply you will take life more as a game and play and laugh and do whatever the hell you want to do because you will treat every day like the first and last day of your life. Disappointing? Oh no, it is EXHILARATING indeed!
And I´m not talking about the Carpe Diem lifestyle, I just want you to be able to see the big picture at all times and be simply the non-judgemental OBSERVER of yourself and your own life. I want you to be more present, appreciate this day and consciously look for things to be thankful for. And last but not least I want you to release some resistance and drop the pressure you have been feeling and carrying for so long. If you are here, in the NOW you will notice that the pressure dissolves, the resistance fades, the problems solve themselves alone.
I want to leave you with this today:
You know exactly what is best for you, you are incredibly intuitive and you have your own wisdom and inner compass. You are so free you could choose bondage. You are your best advisor, teacher, parent. You are an autonomous being. You have the freedom of choice and you decide at any moment of time what´s the next best feeling step for you.
