Exploring: Fear of being misunderstood

There is so much to be discovered, it amazes me day by day. Yesterday when I posted my Instagram story with my very personal pictures, I hesitated for a moment (but did it anyway since that’s just a value I live by).

“Why,” I asked myself?

And now this morning I understood why.

Because I’ve been scared that people will misunderstand it. Box it. Make it their own. Have an opinion.

Where does this fear of being misunderstood come?

The base of it seems my own insecurity – if I’m feeling safe within myself and like even if you have a “wrong” picture of me – so what does this actually really change in my world?

Nothing.

I’m not talking here about being inspired to question and change something. More like even deeper, not in an ego way: Can I leave you with a wrong picture of me and still stay at peace with who I am and the decisions I make?

Can I find peace with what no matter comes up?
No matter who cares and doesn’t care?

There are these quotes we read all the time and our mind knows them, so we just kind wave them away with the feeling we know it all. For example that no one can you make feel anything without your permission.

So true. No one can make you feel good without your permission – isn’t it like this? Feel into this. It’s not a mind thing. If I want to stay in my drama, I’ll stay there. I’ll create more of it. But if I’m open – I might question it, exchange it – feel better. And the same goes for feeling bad.

So now imagine unconsciously we are every day deciding on what we want and don’t want to take from others – imagine we would be aware of it.

Wouldn’t that change everything?

I mean it triggers ME, so it’s MINE. You didn’t put the fear of being misunderstood by you into me. It’s my old story which I (!) can clear up if I turn from me instead of blaming you or even worse just ignoring it. And also it’s not mine. Because what’s really mine in the end? The soul is pure.

Again: self-responsibility & self-honesty attained through mindfulness, again and again.

PS. I just love Fia’s music so much. It’s like just WOW. Go listen. Go feel. And join me for the last workshops this year in Zurich if you feel called to transform, change, let go, grow and meet your soul and heart.

tipps for intuitive cooking & simple recipes to play with in your kitchen

What kind of cooking type are you? The one who thinks she/he can’t cook at all, the one who’s never sure what to cook, take it too seriously or do you just experiment as I do?

If you think you can’t cook: It’s a lie. It’s like saying you can’t paint or get creative. I always thought I can’t cook, I made fires in the kitchen, burned a lot of food and pots – everyone was telling me to better just keep washing dishes instead of cooking. Then the day came where I finally grabbed the book “Skinny Bitch” (it’s not what you think:D) under a mountain of clothes and started reading it.

English, inner journey, society & taboos

people say

people say don’t cry
people say I can’t see you so sad
people say you will feel better again
people say than this person was maybe not the right one
people say why why why why
people say just don’t be so much in pain anymore
people say “this” is not to be shared in public or on social media

And I say: STOP IT.

It’s not yours to judge (“just say”) or solve.

These days I want to grief for myself

GRIEF – It needs space and courage to let grief in. But also the strength to not drown in it.

I saw a beautiful video on rituals from The School of Life we humans cultivated in the past but dropped more and more to keep the economy going (which has obvious consequences).

They talk about a ritual they have in Papa New Guinea – when someone leaves the tribe the nearest person(s) have 3 days to grief in their hut and they call this grieving AWUNBUK – they don’t have to take an active part of the community life. For these three days, they fill a coconut shell with water – it symbolizes the pain and tears which flow into it and on the third day they throw this water in nature and let go of all the pain. I like this a lot.

These days I want to grief for myself.

Heart & Soul Events diesen Sommer in Zürich

Vor zwei Jahren, im Juni 2015,  kam mir “aus dem Nichts” die Idee im August, bevor ich die Schweiz verlasse, einen Happiness Workshop zu organisieren – ich hatte noch nie so etwas gemacht, hatte keine Ahnung, was ich da überhaupt machen sollte, doch meine Intuition, Offenheit und das Univesum leiteten mich. Deborah kam in mein Leben und wir organisierten den Happiness Workshop zusammen mit 15 wunderbaren Frauen. Zum Glück bin ich diesem Ruf gefolgt, denn er hat mein Leben und auch das von anderen komplett verändert.

Dieses Jahr habe ich einige tolle Sachen in Zürich und Prag mit euch geplant – Heart & Soul Events, wo du tiefer in dein Inneres reisen und dich mit Soul Menschen vebrinden kannst – damit du jetzt nicht völlig überfordert bist, habe ich eine Liste gemacht – somit weisst du, welcher Workshop für dich ist und welcher eher nicht.
