How I Master My Pain (Light Of Awareness)

Hello you guys and happy new year! I am so lucky that I can say that I’ve had the best NYE of my life so far! I spent it at Elsa’s place with her family, Anna and Lotti! I didn’t even know the family personally before and neither did they know me, but we got along really frickin’ well and I felt super comfortable and homely 🙂 Anyways, I’ve got something else to share with you, an experience I made.

ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BELIEFS AND WISDOM AND HOW YOU CAN SHIFT YOUR EMOTIONS

In the night from the 1st to the 2nd of january, which in turn I spent in Annas bed, I woke up at 4am. Only about 2 hours after the two of us had a really deep conversation about emotions and independent, unattached love etc, which really revealed some new perspectives. Now, when I woke up, I felt uneasy and thought it is because I had to wee quite badly. So I went to the bathroom and within a moment I realised, that my menstrual pain just started and will get even worse. When I get this it’ll usually keep me awake in pain for a long time, especially if I don’t take pain killers (which I only ever took once). Anyway, I went back to bed and twisted and cramped my body to make it somehow better. But then I realised something:

Firstly, I’ve once read something about how powerful and important the time of the menstruation is (for the woman)

Secondly, that I only had 3 more hours till I had to get up and if I didn’t do anything, it would keep me awake in terrible pain

and finally, that I can do something about my feeling and that the light of pure consiousness can transform darkness to light.

So, what I did was (it helped, that there was no other option anyway) to get fully into the sensation of pain. To feel it as much as I could, to pay all my attention to it and further “breathing into” my lower belly. With all my attention to it I certainly felt the pain ultimately but it wasn’t worse than the feeling whilst trying to stifle/suppress it. Just like 90 seconds later I felt relief and immediately fell asleep.

When I woke up at 7 am and got ready I totally forgot about what happened at night. Only at one moment a thougt came to my mind saying “Hey, the pain is gone, you feel well! What usually lasted for hours and even the whole next day just dissolved!” Perhaps you can empathize with me about how happy I was, not only about feeling GOOD, but primarily about the wisdom I earned.

Because there is a difference between reading about stuff (techniques,meditation,tips,…..) and

actually doing it and making own experiences. With an personal experience you KNOW something, which again equals wisdom. Reading and believing is not knowing.

I do believe a lot, because it makes sense to me, but there are only a few  of the spiritual things I really know. Today I am a bit wiser and can say: if you bring awareness to a matter, you can transform it. And if you don’t like an feeling/emotion, you can shift it, but firstly you have to feel it to the fullest, dig into it, giving full power to it for a short moment rather than letting it survive and hurt you subtly for a very long time.

This is it, my friends, my first enlightening realisation of 2017. Hopefully, when needed, this will be helpful for you.

BRING AWARENESS TO YOUR PAIN AND WATCH IT DISSOLVING INTO LIGHT!

Much love, Jule ❤

Christmas parties can be fun! (+Amsterdam III)

Soooo you guys, last part of my travel diary via pictures! Everytime I look at them I realize again how much I enjoyed it and how inspiring that city is 🙂 Meanwhile in reallife: tomorrow is the last day of uni before holidays and it’s gonna be a tough one (10 am – 8pm). Today though we had a christmas party for the whole uni and it was so cool 🙂 At the beginning it was quite lame and people left because it was mainly mulled wine drining and biscuit eating without interesting interactions. But I somehow knew that I’d just have to stay a little longer and voilà, it was worth it! Pauli (a classmate) and I got to know more students from other courses (game design) and had quite a lot of fun! I love being connected to other uni courses but it can be slightly difficult at the start. However, we grew together a bit more and had a good evening 🙂p1330298p1330372p1330412p1330416p1330405p1330402p1330400p1330280p1330396

Welcome back adventurer! Here we go, second part of my attempt to capture the blissful beauty of this special city! Also, happy weekend! I am glad that I’ve got 2 days off anything to concentrate on my uni homework and christmas presents 🙂 This year I somehow managed to NOT get into stress regarding presents and just having fun adding bits of this and that to fit every individual loved one 🙂

Here we were on the scout for a nice coffee shop that serves vegan lunch. This one had only one option BUT we stayed to take pics of their incredible decor! So lovely!

Ok, so we didn’t find a vegan snack but stumbled across this pretty restaurant that had some vegan and glutenfree options. Not very cheap but worth the price …

This tempeh and salad plate with patatas bravas was 11 € and included the MOST pleasent server that you can also have a nice chat with!

Tempeh is fermented soy beans and super healthy, it is rich in protein and dietary fibre and leads to way less bloating than normal tofu. Our body loooves fermented stuff (i.e. Sauerkraut/miso/soy sauce)

Next up, one of plenty of beau-ti-ful windows and show rooms, perfectly decorated in style and with abandon! Simply walking by these shops is fun, you don’t even ave to leave money there! But, on the other hand, it’s not even that expensive, you’ve got all kinds of price variations!

There will be a last part on monday, it would just be too much beauty for one post 😀 I wish you the happiest 4. advent and love and peace and balance,

yours truly, Jule xx

 

Amsterdam Part1

It’s been a while, but…

Here I am, back with the first batch of pictures from my trip to Amsterdam. As I said before, Anna and I decided spontaneously to visit our friend and former housemate Millie from Bristol, wo moved to Amsterdam for studying with Erasmus. It’s been a year that we haven’t seen us, from the point that Anna and I left England to swap it for Portugal. In addition, I’ve never been to Amsterdam before (at least I can’t remember) and was so curious ever since Anna started to enthuse about it about 2,5 years ago!

So here we were, in midst of that vibrant city, sourrounded by tons of lovely (coffee) shops, flowers, stunning interiors, open windows, vintage goodness etc etc! Every detail in the centre is just so heartwarming and very obviously made with love! So have a look at the pictures, more are yet to come 🙂

Those pretty streets and house fronts!

This city is like a perfect mix of England, Sweden and Germany – and so is the language.

The two beauties ❤ It’s important to have friends you can perfectly chill with!

Can somebody please open a vegan shop of this kind???

Hola gente! This is yesterdays post that I couldn’t upload so ere you go:

Today Lotte arrived and we are finally all together for the first time! I spent the night at my mum’s place and got back at 4 pm, then Eva and I unpacked like  10.000 pieces of kitchen stuff from Lotti and later had pumpkin soup for dinner! Tommorrow is Ikea-time to get a few last things 🙂 (Turned out we needed so much stuff again…ugh. But it is getting more and more homely now)

1324btw, did I tell you about my second day at uni? It was lush, we had a crafts test where our sewing skills were tested (I was so nervous before that but in the end it was super chill!) and therefore I already got to work on the sewing machine! So much fun 🙂

Alright, talk to you later! xo Jule

 

Busy living life

Puh, I guess I can say without any exaggeration that I’ve been super lazy blogging!

But not because I didn’t have any ideas or feel like it, no… I’ve been actually super busy doing other things. I know, this is not typically me. But the last few weeks were so packed with all that stuff that is leading me into the life of a student. New flat, new flatmates, worries and excitement towards the future! It’s funny playing this society game haha! I mean how hilarious is life? 7 months ago I didn’t waste a single thought on the option of studying 😀 So now I’ll take things as they are and give my best to stay conscious and always remember the true values of life!

Like moments like this. I said it before and I’ll say it again:

My closest friends and family can always come to mine. Babe, I’m honest. Looking forward to the day that I come home and bae is laying in my bed (with some vegan baked goods haha or mashed potatoes and peas). This also goes out to my sweetest sister, as well as my cousin. Just to count a few 🙂

Leipzig Wildpark – September 2016

Travel update

p1310825

Hey you guys!

Just a quick update: I spent a fuckin lovely weekend with Anna here in Leipzig and the Elbe Sandstone Mountains (for the Germans out there: yes, that is supposed to be the right translation 😛 ), it was a very very active one and we left our comfort zones multiple times! I’ll upload pictures and reports later, right now I am not feeling so well, catched a cold :/ Also I gotta go make rosemary potato wedges 😀

Speak to you later xxxx

#mercuryretrograde – what’s best to do & not do ☽ ♍

P1310485

Hey guys!

I am back from an amazing and surprising weekend in Poland where we celebrated the birthday of good friend. After two days among 60 people I finally got to know a woman who vibes with me on a deep level. She’s a reiki healer and on her personal spiritual journey as well and we dived deep into topics like chakra healing, protection against other peoples negative energy (wear hats!), twin flames, self love etc!

One thing that is pretty present in my life right now is that I have to learn to be courageous enough to do what I am afraid of, because

You know your way by looking at the things you fear!

Btw, are you experiencing a rough time right know with more stress or bad luck than usual? You should know that its the MERCURY RETROGRADE in virgo right now, bringing chaos with it, and we need to be really aware and conscious and double check everything! It’s a great time to rethink actions or to finish something. DO NOT plan or make big actions, sign contracts, make agreements (not even verbal), start anything new. It is more likely to not last and it may change very quickly. The main period terminates on the 22.09.

So this is why I still didn’t sign a contract for a flat and why I’ll wait till the mercury is through the most intense phase of its retrograde!

Also, what my friend just told me, it is a good time to get rid of stuff and tidy out. Supposedly it is easier to part with stuff you don’t need any longer, so this is what I did on friday and will do today as well 🙂

It’s always nice because I find stuff I kinda forgot about and which I thought would no longer suit me, like this grey skirt I am wearing in the picture above. But then I start mixing it up with other items and find myself in an outfit I really like! 🙂

My lunch, recipe in this blogpost ❤

Abundance on my plate (+waffle recipe)

P1310463 (1)

P1310467 (1)

Started the day with a bowl of fresh local fruits (which looked so freakin juicy and yummy that I had to show you guys via pictures :D) and homemade vegan gluten free waffles with soy yoghurt and blackcurrant jam! This combo thooooo *____*

And because we like sharing I’ll share my rule-of-thumb recipe!

VEGAN + GLUTENFREE BREAKFAST WAFFLES

Pour some vegan milk (I love to use vanilla rice milk because of the flavor) in a measuring cup and sweeten with a splash of agave nectar. Then put in some spoonfulls of corn flour, so that the mixture is still very fluid. Add about 1 teaspoon of baking powder and a bit of salt and vanilla (if not already in the milk).

Then put in gf-flour mix (mine from Dr. Schär mainly contains rice and potato flour) until the mixture is thick but still pourable. Btw: you can mix any gluten free flours and just experiment. Buckwheat flour is really nice as well, giving it that grainy texture, just as ground flaxseeds or coconut shreds. Have I mentioned oat flakes instead of flour? Incredibly good! You see, so many options!!

Bananas work pretty well, too, so just try out what you like but always watch out for the thick yet pourable texture!

 

I guess, this was the most unconventional recipe of all times hahah, I basically said : take milk, baking powder, flour and some substitutes of your choice, mix until thick and smooth and bake until ready 😀

Long lives the testing (cruelty free of cooourse)!

Cheers guys, have a wonderful day!

About cruising on earth

I’m back from Danzig!

A group of my old friends from school and I went to Poland and the city of Danzig (Gdansk) to do what we did in Prague 2 years earlier: coming together to camp, have fun, drink, laugh, cook, chill etc. This time our campground was almost directly at the beach (5 mins walking) and we had a huge “base camp” framed by a DDR caravan , VW T5, TIPI tent, a hammock, ale-benches and a tripod holding a huge kettle/cauldron. I didn’t take a camera this year because it just nicer sometimes not to think of taking pictures all the time, but these two here, which I took in Prague, pretty much show the situation!

P1070262P1070270

Well, after 7 days of heavy rain to baking heat we made it back and I went straight to Anna’s. It took us less than an hour and we were diving deeper than my head could process that quickly! We talked about the anunaki “gods” and how there is no such thing like a setting sun, because it’s just us who “turn our backs to the sun”. The sun itself shines day and night so basically there’s absolutely no need for TIME as in DAYTIME and NIGHTTIME. The NOW finally made perfect sense because in the past I used to think:

“Ok if time does not exist and time counting is manmade, why do we have day and night?” But then it hit me and I actually felt dizzy, because the simple fact that the earth is circling doesn’t mean that we need the concept of time.

Howsoever, this is kinda hard to explain.  What we have is now and that is more than enough 🙂 Kiss!
