Every new year is a new chance to live every single moment

It’s been a long time ago, I have been writing something here on this blog.
Honestly I am struggling with the idea what to do and where to go.
Actually it is like always. Haha!
But I want to continue. One of my goals for next year

Everyday is a sunday in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica

.

This year has been amazing. I met wonderful places, like on Bali or Santa Teresa and Nosara in Costa Rica. But also Tarifa in South Spain was amazing. And I met a lot of beautiful people, who entered my heart, and from whom I learnt a lot about life, business and about myself.
Every single person was my teacher on my path through life.

I made big steps in my personal growth and could broaden up my mind even beyond my horizon, where I though there must be the horizon. But learning and experiencing is endless.

My barrio in Santa Marta, local lifestyle

I am writing you right now from my little apartment in Santa Marta in Colombia, sitting in my hammock, with the view over the city.

I was here primarily to volunteer for an organization, which is called Mariposa Amarilla,  supporting street kids in this area. I decided to use the time, while everyone is celebrating Christmas with there beloved ones, to share my love with those who need it the most.

 

On Christmas Eve I spent time

Christmas decoration in Santa Marta Beach, Colombia

with the local family where I stay. Its a small apartment i booked via Airbnb.I live in a barrio (district) where just locals live. No tourists here. This is the best way to learn and understand the culture and people, who are living here.

When I reflect the last year, I can just see beautiful moments and experiences. Of course, there have been also negative moments, but this is a part of life. And hounestly, most of the time they just kicking you even deeper in the reality, and you will feel that you are alive.

My worst problems the last months have been the electronic problems. 2 laptops crashed and my phone is since days locked by a Colombian mobile provider, so that I can’t use it. That sucks, but it’s just a material problem.

But since I decided, to live a nomad lifestyle, reduced my guts to a minimum and nowadays have less things and responsibilities – I feel richer than ever before. Because once you have nothing, you can do everything.
You can’t loose a lot and you can act spontaneous.

What I learned this year, is that you can open the door to another world, that welcome you with open arms, a world that’s so diverse and intensive, IF you allow yourself to le go, let go from believes, habits and too many expectations. The world is constantly moving and changing. So stop to collect things, save, live secure, and build up a future, which you wont able to keep it. Live right now. In this and every single moment, expect changes and be even open to new things that come along. This is part of the game. If you can handle it, you can reach the next levels.

And they are so much fun!

I am already looking forward. Just the next 2 month will be amazing for me, with many new experiences.

Goal for next year: see more sunsets at the ocean

I am going to have my first tattoo. On my ankle. Finally my roommate and host in Bogota inspired me to do it now.

I will join a sacred medicine retreat with the elders and Sharman’s. One part will be of course Ayahuasca. I am a little bit scared to take this medicine, what it’s called here in this area. But I am going to prepare myself and think I am ready now – especially from a spiritual perspective.

Than I will do an excursion to the Amazon and fly to Brazil to celebrate Carnival in Rio. Raised in the Carnival city Cologne, participating on the biggest Carnival parties in the world, has been always a dream for me since I am a young girl.2015-11-19 16.39.23

Afterwards surfing again in Pipa! 🙂 I never thought that you could get so addictive with surfing.
But it’s true.

I will keep you updated about all my experiences.

I wish everyone a good start of a new year, and a new chapter to change or improve yourself. Open your eyes, ears, heart and mind and live every moment…wherever you are!

My favouite place in the world: the beach!

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

What makes you happy?

When we think about our life. Our inner desires, wishes and values and what we want to achieve finally – it always come back to happiness.

We may all have different plans and desires.
We want to buy a house for the time of retirement, travel or visit some specific places, aspire to a position or live a certain lifestyle.
But what is behind these dreams? What motivates us to aim it? 
In the end, it’s mostly the ambition to be happy.

  • To buy a house is the intention to live a more peaceful life and don’t worry about money in times of retirement. Security may makes us relaxed. Relaxation is a good initial position for happiness.
  • To see new places, cultures and meet new people. Traveling is broaden up our mind. We learn more about life. The world becomes smaller and yourself richer. Or probably you just want to relax on the beach. But coming out of your small world and visit either inspiring new sides of life or the most beautiful places in the world, makes us happy.
  • If your intention is to live another lifestyle, you may not be happy yet with your current one. To much stress, pressure or a daily routined “hamster wheel lifestyle“. So your will is probably to change it into more relaxation, more quality, love and spending more time with your beloved ones.

It doesn’t matter which desires and intentions you have in life, in the end we all seeking for more happiness.

My wish was always to stay at the sunny side. I love the beach and sun and love to travel. So I made this to my lifestyle.
But even for me, I needed to prepare it for 1-2 years actively.
So thats why I want to share here with you how to start.

The four steps you have to work on. To change something and start your life, where you can be more happy.

1. Change your values (In my case: live with less luxury, enjoy the small moments, learn to love everybody and everything, feel home everywhere)
2. Change my habits (in my case: limit your belongings, learn and study every day for it)
3. Follow masters. Search for some „idols“, people, who already live that life, what you want to live. Follow them. Study them. What did they do for it? How could they became this characteristic? What are their values, habits, daily routines?
4. Stop dreaming and act. Now its time to make a plan and change it. If you start now continuously, you can achieve it quite soon. 
Of course you have to be patience. But if I can do it, everyone can do it! 🙂

If you need help with it, contact me. Would love to provide you with infos and ideas or just sharing thoughts.

Finally here a video of my time with Terra nation as a beacher in Milos. Its our HAPPY beach version of Pharrel Williams.

Become happy. Feel happy. Be happy.

Yoga Nidra – a deep sleep meditation

Yoga Nidra is a deep meditation which “yogis” often use to experience the deepest state of relaxation.

It is also quite known under “lucid dreaming”, which is similar, but not include to stay in consciousness of your actual environment.

You need just to lay down on your back with closed eyes and follow the instructions. There is nothing else to do.

In the beginning most of the people fell asleep. But after a while you become practiced and fall into a stat of deep relaxation, but with full awareness and present in this moment.

Give yourself permission to rest, balance and restore and try it.

A meditative practice will awaken your whole being, allowing you to enjoy life fully.

There is nothing required of you but to lie down and listen.

I really would love to know, if it helped you. So give me your feedback.

My LIVE YOUR LIFE Manifesto

I want to share with you my LIVE YOUR LIFE manifesto. Live Your Life Manifesto

Following each of these terms, helped me to live more happy and fulfilled.

LIVE NOW:

Be present in every moment you live. Don’t postpone things to the future (for example: when I earned enough money, I want to travel). Do it NOW.

INSPIRE YOURSELF:

Listen inside of you and just do things that inspire you. In which situations do you forget the time? What are you doing at these moments? Is it a passion? Than repeat it by doing this. It can become a big part of your life.

VOLUNTEER FREELY:

Start to help people, organizations, companies or friends. You want to learn something new? Go and ask for volunteering. You can see the need for help? Go and do it freely. In the system of Karma, there is always an action – if you are doing good things in live, good things will come back to you as well.

EAT HEALTHY:

Try to avoid fast food, sugar and meet. Eat more natural ingredients and slow food.  Eat more regional fruits and vegetables and cook or prepare your food by yourself – as far as it’s possible. After a while you will not just have more power,  even your inner beauty will rise and you set a basis for a long life.

YOGA DAILY:

Practicing Yoga everyday was making me more smooth and relaxed, but also it’s strengthen my muscles, body shape and rise my awareness and connection of the body, mind and soul. You don’t need to do and call it Yoga. But practicing on yourself. Do something for your body and mind. And do it consciously.

OFFER HELP:

Increase your Karma and help those who really need it. You will see that you not just feel better and do things in life that worth it, you will even get it back and receive support, when you need help. We are one community, so lets share. And never forget: Its all coming back to you!

USE CREATIVITY:

By using your creativity, your can highly express yourself. But most of the people doesn’t even know, that they are creative. You are! You just lost it in your daily life of regulations and processes, which are reasons to loose creativity. There are tons of ways to activate your creativity again. Just get started.

RELAX MORE:

Your life will win more on quality, when you start to slow down. Quality time instead of quantity time. You don’t need to be everywhere and do everything. Your body and mind is like a computer. Sometimes you need to shut it down, close it and restart it, to have the full power again. Otherwise it will overheat and overload. So take your time and relax.

LOVE ALWAYS:

To love doesn’t mean just to share your love with your partner or kids.  I mean to start loving always. Love the people around you, love the things you are doing, love each moment and share your love.  People will also share their love with you.  Always remember: We are all one.

INTERACT PASSIONATELY:

Every step you do, every thought you think, every word you say – do it with passion. If you don’t feel for it? Drop it! It’s not your passion. By becoming aware of your motivations you will shift your actions and interactions to those, which actuates you. If you don’t know yet, what your real passions are – start to follow your heart.

FORGIVE OTHERS:

We are all humans and making mistakes. So don’t be resentful. Forgive yourself and others. It has its reason, why those things happened. Take it as a learning. And if you think back, you will find something good in it. Everything in life is constantly changing. So don’t try to hold on things – especially not on bad moods and thoughts. Let it go and remind on the good moments.

EXERCISE FOREVER:

Never stop to learn or practice.  I call my life “the university and study of life”. You will always be a student of life. So take the chance and don’t miss to learn and figure out about it and what the world offers you. It will not just give you a better overview and understanding for your existence, you also become more happy and will stay young, but wise.
