The last days I have thought a lot about the freedom to make choices. When I was little I have been teached what is right and wrong. While growing up this sometimes narrowed my view. It was important to understand what in the eyes of my parents & elders was right and wrong. However as a conscious, responsible adult I feel I need to re-set and define who I really am. It’s fund to find out which choices there are and explore. I feel I win a whole new set of skills and my creativity and happiness is higher than before. One of my 2015 intents are to more focus on the choices live gives me and consciously looking out for things I normally would not do. I went on a expedition in Hackney to find a new raw vegan food place LOVR (http://www.loveorganicveganraw.com)Yummy !
Next week… I am curious already what I will find to inspire me. It’s really fun. The other option is to look at your old recipe book and cook something which you have never done before. Will do a polenta pizza today. Can’t wait.
Take the choices this year and make your life richer. Be curious !
A wonderful summer day with a breeze of sea air helps to relax muscles and all levels of the body. Are you connected to yourself in these wonderful days ? I try to be very conscious about the beauty of nature, the sun on my skin, the air I breeze and if I look up in the sky the blue colour and white clouds. It is such a gift to experience this. In the same time I feel its not easy to keep this feeling when I have the hectic working days. An ongoing struggle for balance but a good one to keep continuously working on.
Spring has arrived with the birds singing and the flowers giving birth to the wonderful soft, light spring smells. How could I forget the feeling of wearing only a T-shirt ? I am grateful.
With the Spring I have started to eat vegan. Plant based diet, <a href=”https://greenhuiz.com/product-category/sprouting_seeds/”>microgreens</a>… feel so radiant and much better. It has a real resonance in my body. It was just something my body asked for and is rewarding me for it.
I was wondering today through a paradise of colours; shapes and smells. Nature has so much to give to us when we are able to receive. I tried to be very present. It seemed to me these flowers knew exactly that shining in there way is there purpose and that is what they do. Mybe we can learn from them – just to shine who we are.
Recently I was walking past a lake which was frozen. It was a beautiful scenario with the light mirroring on the ice and a sign of magic was in the air. Next to me some kids started to throw little wooden sticks on the ice. They enjoyed this moment so much in simple throwing the wooden stick on the ice and watching it moving, elegantly, quickly over the ice to a destination unknown. When the stick went further a loud clapping and laughing was happening. I thought to myself how simple life’s joy can be and how less we need to be happy in the moment.
It’s November here in London and the leaves have all fallen down. It’s the season where we are asked to go inside look at our true self and spend time with it.
Light is important for us as humans and in this time of preparation for winter I invite you to use the power of light. I have recently seen so many beautiful scenes of sunshine breaking through the clouds or as in this picture through the leaves. Enjoy the beauty of the light all around you. It is the food for the soul in this time of year.
How long does it take to be completely still. Just to feel the grass underneath my feet, the wind through the hair and listen to the song of the birds. Sometimes it can take a while… try it out. How long it takes for you. The more I practice it the more I enjoy it. In the beginning its very difficult as there are so many other thoughts and feelings who want to be heard… but eventually there is a place to be still. Look out for it… its the place where you can meet your true self.
I have been in Kew Gardens recently and was overwhelmed by the old trees who invited me under there branch umbrella. Particularly one of them drew my attention being huge in size and tall. It must have been over 60 years old. I gave him some Reiki and the tree energy is very very deep and calm.
I needed to keep quite a distance to allow the aura of the tree to enjoy the energy and I could feel a true connection specifically in the area of the end of the spine. Trees are a fabulous teacher for us. They put their roots deep in the ground and go deeper and deeper towards the earth while in the same time growing higher and higher to the sky.
My learning from this was that you need to be rooted to be connected to the sky, which I translate in you need to be rooted on earth to be able to enjoy the spiritual realms. If you are not rooted you easily can be lost in those spiritual realms as your energy system can’t translate and integrate the energy in the here and now.
I went to see the Dalai Lama in the Royal Albert Hall recently.
My heart was touched when he entered the stage. How privileged I was to see him live. He has such a great humour and his message is very simple: be the change you want to see in the world. Be alive, be compassionate and spread peace and love.
He taught about look beyond the things you are attached to. When you are suffering from something, don’t allow yourself to get stuck in the suffering. Walk beyond the suffering and be alive.
He taught that we need to look inside and be aware of the beauty within, not only what can be seen on the outside.
