How to get out of the system?

You don’t need to have money to change something. You don’t need to be single and without kids to become free. These are the most complaints I heard when people tell me, they would love to change something, but they can’t. For me it’s easy. Because I am young, independent and kids-free. That might truly help, but is not an answer and result just to except and to do nothing.

If you really really want. And when you are ready. YOU CAN DO IT!

When we all do all small actions every day, we can change a lot as a union. Even scientists and economists realise that the situation in which we humans are right now, as a society, has come to a point where we need to change something.

We destroy our planet by industrial and economical contaminations, we listen and believe all the negative headlines and news in the media, politics are made by the big  economic player and people are consciously tried to keep them busy. Busy from awaking, from seeing who we really are. For the big “economic gods” ( I call them gods, because they are going to win more and more power on this earth and this is exactly what they want) we are just consumer or buyer. We have to earn more money to buy more stuff.

Is that what you are? Is that want you want to be?

For me the answer is definitely NO!

We can change if we want. We can do little steps each day, to be come more conscious about our environment, about what we eat, what we buy, how we act and what we should believe and what not.

So here are just a few options listed, what you can do to get out of the system and even help to create this world to a big community that is connected again with our mother earth and all its beings:

1. Change food and nutrition

Stop eating what media is telling you what’s good for you. Research where it comes from, explore what’s good for you.

Diet is not a diet to loose weight. It’s the choice to keep out things that are not good for us.

Some foods like refined sugar and wheat makes not just fat, it has also almost no good nutritions inside and makes us addictive. You are just eating what people want that you eat. But would you eat is also when you were won up in another society or another age? Without media?

2. Try to spend and live with less money.

Money makes addictive. For the big economic gods. You are addicted to the system. The more you are able to live without it, the easier it will become for you to step out the system, because you are independent. But this means to let go from all your arrangements. If you need gadgets or tools, try to rent them or buy them used. There is already so much stuff on this planet. We live in a consumer world, in abundance. This means we are out of balance and should deal with the things that we are already have. It should also protect us from all the trash we are producing. How can Mother Earth deal with all that trash? Its already too much. It will effect us in a longterm way. We have all the contaminations already in our waters, foods and air, that we need to survive. Do we want to kill ourselves?

3. Change your mind.

Meditate, practice Yoga or any other practice to reduce your full mind and thoughts to connect with with your spirit and soul. It will automatic tell you why your here and where to go.

But you need to take it serious and practise regularly to get out of the hamster wheel and see the difference of being just a small puppet in the theatre play or an individual that is connected to a bigger story – a whole society of beings that can live in peace and harmony. It’s still a lot of work to get there, but I see already a lot of positive developments in the last decades, and our optimistic can drive us to big actions. So lets do it! 🙂

4. Exercise at least 30 minutes per day outside in the nature

If possible outside in the nature. Especially when you live in a city and spend most of your time in concrete walls.  It helps you to free your mind, to keep your body active and strong and helps to build and spread serotonin in your body. That makes you happy and alive and improves your way of a positive thinking, which is necessary to actively change something.

5. Do something good everyday

Do something good for a person, organisation or environment without excepting anything else in return. Rewarding will come later.

All good comes back. We are part of an equal system of interactions. In the Vedic, old Indian, philosophy its called “Karma”, the Andean indigenous people in Peru call it “Ayni”. You can spend money to an aid organisation, volunteer for a social project, help a good friend or family member or even a person you don’t know but need the help. Or at least give somewhere a smile, who had a bad day. You will see after a while the return is tremendous and priceless.

By practising awareness, consciousness, connection to your own true being, mother earth and the spirit will help you to get out of a game which is already rigged.

How to increase your intuition?

10 tools to increase your intuition

Intuition is something that every one of us carries deep inside with us. There might be people who are talented in using his or her intuition, but in fact intuition is what you can train and learn to use as a high value skill. If we want to achieve something in life that makes us happy, we need the right vision.

To get a clear vision, we need to look in our hearts. Intuition is useful for decision-making, problem solving, creativity increasing, receive massages as warnings, foretelling future events, spiritual guidance and to stay focused on your real goals.

With following tools you can increase your intuition in just a few weeks:

  1. Meditate regularly. Try to mediate daily for at least 10-15 minutes. A clear and empty mind, helps you to get to the point, who you really are and what you really want.
  2. Practice silence. Listen and observe more. Talk and think less.
  3. Be present. Try always to be in the moment. Be aware of your situations, actions and feelings.
  4. Dream interpretation. In dreams we process a lot of unconscious thoughts and actions. To learn about your dreams and their meanings, can help to increase our intuition.
  5. Checking with your feelings. Learn more about your self and train your consciousness of your unconsciousness. Check minimum twice a day how do you feel right now. Inside of you, on your close or around your. Write it down brackets or bullet points.
  6. Consume less TV, radio, entertainment internet content or music
  7. Have a regular morning and night ritual. Try to keep some rituals right after you wake up and right before bedtime. That keeps your thoughts and actions clear and open for bigger inspirations.
  8. Be playful, silly and creative. Whenever you need it, dance, laugh, smile, make jokes, doodle or do any other things that break your serious rational mind.
  9. Create a unity between your voice and what you’re talking, your thoughts and what your thinking and your actions, what you finally do with it.
  10. Practice and exercise yoga, dancing and stretching to balance your body, mind and soul.

“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that donors the servant and has forgotten the gift.” (Albert Einstein)

Beach Yoga – become one with the nature

For me is the beach side something like my living room. I try to use it and be there as much as I can.
Especially in the mornings practicing meditation, yoga at the beach or go for a long jogging tour, it gives me me so much power and energy for the day.
And especially because of the nature – all its beautiful unpredictable situations, creates those very special moments. Each is different. Each is new.

Yoga means „building a union. Continue reading Beach Yoga – become one with the nature

Can travelling help us to change our habits and personality?

A couple of days ago, I had a interesting and inspiring conversation with a guy also from Germany.

I met in I’m my hostel in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica.
He is traveling for a few years already. Is just in its early twenties, but has an open minded ideology regarding finding hisself.
In Germany he had a lot of problems with the school system, teachers and his family.
The German perfectionism and outer pressure on “having something” instead of “being something” made him weird and enoying.
For any reason he felt like a fool, not to stay at the same level of the typical education system as there friends or people from his environment.
He had the feeling he is not exepted as a simple human being with his own ideologies and wills. You have to wear the same costume to be part of the party.
But that’s weird. Why can’t we live and be what we want? Especially today, where is a worldwide network with tones of different opportunities.
On the one hand, that depends on in which environment and society you are born and how you grown up.
On the other hand, it depends on you. You can always change it.
Lucas, the guy felt so weird and empty, because he lived a life, what was not his own life. So he started to take drugs and went out for partying, just to neutralise and calm down his inner desires.
After school he decided then to travel and travelled in the end 1,5 years before he came back home for the first time again.
This time period of traveling opend his eyes. He found out, that in other countries are other rules, habits, values and lifestyles. There is no right or wrong, it is always the perspective from where you look at your life and values.
Lucas learned that he was now able to to what he wants and nobody cared about it, he could be experimental in habits, ways of life and find out what his values and motivations in life are about. He captured all contacts to his family and friends during this time, just to make a complete reset of his current position.
It was a beginning of a journey – a journey to find hisself.
But when he came back home for the first time, where he stayed at his parents house, met the same friends from before, he suddenly fall back into the same habits.
Felt weird, as a stranger, took drugs and made party.
So after half a year he decided to travel again. He was not ready at this time to come back, he didn’t find hisself and could feel that he was not at the end of the path.
So for over one year now, he is traveling again. He saved some money before in Germany and worked a while in Canada.
Mostly he is staying 2-3 month at one place and is trying to keep his expanses as low as he can by working as a volunteer at a hostel or hotel. They offer you normally free accommodation and sometimes food for a little bit of work (mostly between 10-25 hours per week).
Lucas said, he will travel so long until he will find that way of life and motivation that makes him happy and peaceful inside.
“I am starting to get there”, he mentioned to me. “Before, I was always destroying things, was angry and very negative in my mind. Today I start to see just the beautiful things inside everything. I even get creative and my mind starts to think about, how he can create something useful out of each simple piece of nature”.
Oh my god, what a big mind shift in just 2-3 years!
Once, when he will come back to Germany, he wants to say to his parents, ” Hi, I am back. And I am what I am. And that is me.” He ment by that, to have the power and strength to stay then as he is, not to fall back into his old habits and also to be accepted as a new person by his family and friends.
And as long as he hasnt the feeling, he is ready for it, he wants to travel. Minimum the next 3-5 years.
For me it just shows me again, how important traveling on our own can be to find ourself. Especially when we have the feeling we are born into a wrong society, when we have the feeling we are strangers, when we have the feeling we are not excepted by our invironment.
If you feel the same, I can just highly recommend to go traveling.
It doesn’t have to be for years, sometimes it’s enough to travel for a few month, just to brake out of your hamster wheel or just to get new insights.
And you doesn’t need to go to many places or all over the world. You can also just stay at one place, that you enjoy – the mountains or the beach side.
And you doesn’t need to be in your early twenties. Event when you are in an older age and have a settled life, it is always possible to leave this place for a while.
Just the first steps to decide to travel and actually move are those actions, where people already stuck. Because you have to come our of your comfort zone.
You have to change something and leave your secure environment.
There is one of my favourite quotes, which I want to share with you guys. It helped me a lot to move my ass and start to change my life:
“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone”
Life vegins at the end of your comfort zone

The difference between comfort and happiness

Today on a boat offshore driving towards Split, I found Thiele wise words from Colin, which I wanna share with you:

“There’s a big difference between comfort and happiness: 
being happy means that you are overjoyed about what you’re doing, who you are, the people you’re meeting and the things that you’re doing. 
Being comfortable means that you’re not feeling too bad or too good…you’re neutral. Neutral is what suburbs are for. Comfort is for people who are looking to relax, not to grow and learn and experience new things. 
You may save yourself from any potential lows by keeping yourself comfortable, in an easy-chair, watching reality TV and eating Doritos, but you won’t experience any truly happy moments, either. 
You need the bad (or even just the possibility of bad) to truly experience the good, and to fully appreciate the difference between the two.”
(Colin Whrite “How To Travel Full Time”)
