Hey you lovely being sitting in front of the screen,
I am back from a very special roadtrip my people Anna and Elsa + moi went on! Without planning, we visited plenty of cities in western Germany we’ve never seen before! Most of them were true gems, super pretty and with a good vibe! We then slept in a forest, had campfires (who needs boys tho ;D) and indulged in the feeling of freedom and pure living. We ain’t need nothing more but the peaceful nature, a warming fire, filling food and our company… love it! Anyway, when I find the time (please be patient with me, I think I’m currently in my busiest phase of life so far) I’ll provide you with some phone snaps of our trip 🙂
Until then: 2 quick pics of my famous vegan glutenfree sugarfree buckwheat waffles. You are welcome 😉
you can’t imagine how tired I am right now. Or maybe you can. I definitely shouldn’t be blogging and editing pictures right now but rather have a sower, prepare my lunch and go to sleep. Tomorrow is my first fitting of all the pieces we’ve sown to date in uni, and I need to make final completions on one piece. But anyway, I am well prepared for the next day most nights and tonight I feel like just not thinking about tomorrow.
What I want to save here, on my blog, today, is how grateful, honestly thankful I am for my studies. No matter how stressful it can get, I am happy to be at a place that stimulates my spirit to be active and my mind to get creative. It can be a daily struggly but ultimately I am glad to do what I am doing. And also to be surrounded by a fair amount of kind, lovely, cooperative and funny people! This way I almost don’t mind spending 9 to 10 hours a day in Uni, as it is mostly practical and easy-going 🙂
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!
