How to become a digital nomad?

Supi in Colombia

Learn from others and save your time. Get ready in just 30 days.

When I first heard about the expression “digital nomad” ten years ago, I was still working in an agency in Germany. I worked lots of hours in the office, banned to my desk, spending over and over in loooong meetings in concrete walls.

And sometimes I just looked outside the window, the birds where singing, people laughing… and I thought: What the hell am I doing here? Did you have had the same thoughts? Wondering if there is even for you a chance to get out of this 9-5 jobs, selling your soul and energy to someone else business just to receive the money to keep your life smooth and running?

If you need a holiday to recover from your daily life, you have to change something. Start to make your daily life a holiday.

A lot of people ask me how to start? If you start googling digital nomad lifestyle and how to start, you get a lot of information. But what is right for you? It can get very overwhelming and time-consuming.

I would be so grateful if there would have been someone, who took me by the hand and help me to setup. I would be probably faster at the point, where I am today. Just by simply learning from successful digital nomads, who are already there.

WHAT MEANS FREEDOM TO YOU?

What means freedom for you

✨DEFINITION OF FREEDOM✨

Before I started to become a nomad, more than 6 years ago, I was working in agencies and marketing departments as a marketing manager. All my “work life”, I was working as a freelancer and never been really employed. Because I have been always quite autonomous and loved the idea to be independent and schedule my day to my work-life balance.

But to be honest? I was not free… …not in time. I had a full scheduled day and could sometimes not even manage my private life anymore. I had simply never time. ✨ …not in location. I felt often slaved to my office desk or spent time in meeting rooms all day without any fresh air and daylight, surrounded by cold concrete walls.

✨ …not from my soul. And this is the most important one: Even though I loved my job at this time and the variety of different projects and the connection to people, I started to feel tired and empty after a while. Because there was something missing. The purpose of my soul, the reason to be here on this planet, the connection to the higher source and my life force.

✨ It took me a while to understand this and until I eventually took action and changed something. I learned and studied A LOT in self-development, yoga, meditation, and spirituality, how to become happier, how to change my life, more fulfilling life balance and so on…

✨I started to TRAVEL MORE and WORK LESS. ✨ One day I humbled over the expression “digital nomad” and new this life will make me more independent, time and location wise. It would allow me to travel wherever I want, meet new cultures, places and make new friends, while I was working from my, laptop from everywhere.

✨ So I DID! I packed my bag rented out my flat for minimum one year and when on a long journey. I had an amazing time and everything I did was perfect. Sometimes it felt like a dream, too good to be true.

✨ BUT also this lifestyle has its good and bad sites. I still had to work for clients, for other peoples products, businesses and started to feel some resistance. And there it was again: The feeling of emptiness…

✨ Emptiness even in paradise? Yes! Because it was not the purpose of my soul. My soul was calling for more… …more true connection, …more personal fulfillment, …more things that I really love …more creativity and creation …more abundance.

✨ Once I started to create things for my own, I felt more alive and in flow with my heart, soul, and life. My inner and outer life seemed to be aligned.

✨ But just my latest new project really boosted my full potential in so many ways. Because now I am able to do what I want… …to welcome and live more abundance on all levels …more wealth …more choices how I want to structure my day …more own decisions, with who I am want to work with and how. …more passive income …more soul food and fulfillment

✨ All of that means more FREEDOM for me. Because I am free to decide and can make conscious actions that lead to a result that I want to happen.

✨ What means freedom for you? 🙂

✨ And if you want to know more about my freedom project, post FREEDOM in the comments below. I am happy to share more information about what’s working for me.

✨Happy day!!🤗

How to work online and travel the world

Last summer in 2018, I’ve created together with ARTE a German documentary about the nomad lifestyle in Bali.

I speak about how to become a digital nomad, the challenges and the advantages of this lifestyle, how I usually work on the road and how to earn money. I tell about, where to register as a permanent traveller, how and where to have your insurances and where to invest in your future as a digital nomad – and many more.

A few months later the international channel DW published this documentary in English.



If you want to live this lifestyle, too or at least looking for a way to earn passive income to be financially free, drop me an email with the code “FREEME” and I will send you further information.

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 messages as warnings, foretelling future events, spiritual guidance and to stay focused on your real goals.

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

  1. Meditate regularly. Try to meditate 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 yours. 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 a joke, 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)

Mantra of the week: In this moment I treat myself with love and kindness.

I know its Christmas and everybody is very busy. Precisely because you should take your time and make a small gift for yourself by starting with a beautiful mantra or affirmation into this chrismas week.  Say this very special mantra, which is like balm for the soul, minimum once a day to yourself:

In this moment I treat myself with love and kindness.

In this moment I treat myself with love and kindness.
In this moment I treat myself with love and kindness.

 

Kiss and love from Mexico!

Mantra of the week: „Hoʻoponopono“ – the Hawaiian mantra of forgiveness

This is one of the most powerful mantras ever!

Hoʻoponopono (ho-o-pono-pono) is an old traditional Hawaiian theory of reconciliation and forgiveness.

“Hoʻoponopono” is defined in the Hawaiian Dictionary as “mental cleansing: family conferences in which relationships were set right through prayer, discussion, confession, repentance, and mutual restitution and forgiveness.”

The Hawaiian believe that a lot of our different illness comes from a lack of forgiveness. One way which is adopted into the modern way and is used today all over the world, is a powerful mantra , which you pray to release inner anxieties and recriminations. Especially when you have a certain illness or pain.

Put one hand on this part of the body and repeat for a few minutes this mantra:

“I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you.”

Repeat this and focus on the part of your body. Give yourself attention to it. Eventually you will forgive yourself and change locked and tight energy in your body to pure light and love. That will release your pain and heal every cell of your body.

“Willpower” or the psychological science of self-control

Willpower is one of the most important attitudes and characteristics you need to have, to be successful in what you are doing or want to do.Super power
Probably you know some of those people, who get done everything. If they have an idea in there mind, they realize it.
They tell you, that they want to quit there job, open there own business, move to another city and so on…
And a few months later, you talk again and they inform you that they did it – and of course with success!
And you feel like a small idiot, still doing the same stuff each day, event though you had the idea before, to quit your job. To open a business, to travel more, to move somewhere else.

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
