Awww these days, when all you are craving is heaps of fresh, raw salad and you still got lots of homegrown sprouts in the fridge *___* A huge plus of summer is that I can have lots of tasty tomatoes without guilt (sometimes the craving during the winter is too strong but I know tomatoes are summer food only :X) and I don’t feel cold from a salad haha (this is actually a real thing in winter… ). Here I added avocado, corn, cucumber, cherry tomatoes and alfalfa sprouts and topped it with raw hemp oil and some italian herbs. Especially when eating raw (but not only), I really want my food to be organic, so this beauty here is all pesticide and GMO-free!
Try eating your salad with chopsticks, it is fun, takes longer, makes you appreciate and taste every bite more and leaves you replete quicker 🙂
These pictures make me dream of warm, dusty pink summer days.Breakfast with a friend, coating oneself with that warmth in the air, the room bathed in light. You are about to slip into your favorite sheer summer dress and the strap sandals that are so perfectly adjusted to your feet because of long summer walks over the past years.
Until then, I enjoy my day off with capturing these visions via photographs and sharing it with you guys, hoping to stimulate you own sentiency for summery vibes ❤
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!
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 🙂
I am so tired right now. It’s close to 2 am and I just got back from a house party, whose hosts I didn’t know at all. Wasn’t my type of party, too much smoke etc, and already super tired! Not surprising tho after a day like this; woke up early to spent theday at one of the biggest flea markets of the country (I guess) with my mum and sister, it was cold but I felt good and it was amazing to have them both around! I got a nice big wooden box and ladder (for half the actual price because the seller liked my eye colour so much 😀 ). Tomorrow (or rather later today) we’ll have a Halloween party but I already decided not to party too hard, as I just wanna feel good and not drained!
So sleep well and remember : the best project you’ll ever work on is you! Haha, out of context but u know, it’s important xx
She came and she left after 22 intense hours. Not that she is actually leaving, just switching home towns, as for me, she is part of the flatshare just as I am part of hers! So Anna and I finally got to spent time in my new home and as usual, it didn’t take us a lot of time to dive deep and get on the philosophic and spiritual wave. Also, what I notice every time is that face-to-face talking about thoughts and feelings is worth a mint!! Like how we both feel about living with other people and not sharing a room anymore, how we perceive our friendship etc!
You guys, wait with evaluating a situation until you have heard the other sides perception! Talking is everyting 🙂
Moreover, we made it to the food store and later cooked a freaking filling vegan dinner! Well, there may be healthier things than potato rösti (hash browns), but the vietnamese summer rolls were some real goodness consisting of heaps of fresh veggies, tofu and rice noodles! Talking of food I want to remind myself: see it as energy. An unripe mango does not have any nutritional value, so a fruit based diet in germany (especially in autumn, winter, spring) just doesn’t work so well! Here we have all kinds of cabbage, tubers, ground veggies.. yay! 😀 But seriously; I love me some mashed potatoes with fried veggies and some sort of beans or other rprotein sources 🙂
I want a strong root chakra. I want to be so in love with life, for no specific reason, that nothing can really shatter me and that every nice circumstance or situation/happening is just a pleasant bonus. I want to be grounded, balanced, full of trust and (self)love.
I contain nature within myself. I am nature. Pure abundance.
It’s been long that I felt THAT exited (and a bit anxious) about an upcoming event like I did yesterday. I really didn’t know how to feel about: my first day at Uni.
Luckily, before going to bed I realized that it all really isn’t that bad and that there is no need to take this topic too seriously!
Therefore I just chilled and the moment I entered the building (and met a really nice girl from Vietnam who studies the same as me) I stopped being nervous about the big unknown and it felt kinda familiar already. It’s really nothing more or different than school… Anyway, the whole day was super exhausting (loooooots of new input) but now I am actually looking forward to tomorrow! In case you didn’t know (no problem :P): I just started studying fashion design in Leipzig/Germany 🙂
So we’ll see how it goes but I already love my new flat and feel home and love to welcome guests and friends and and and 😛
Just another wonderful day in the capital with a girl without a label. I just realized again that even the label “friend” constrains the relationship with the expectations and prototypes society imposes on us. Besides kindness, just act like you feel towards a person. You esteem me? Spent a little of your precious time with me as a present. Help me out when I need support. Jump for joy with me when life is sweet. Not because you are my friend but because you enjoy us being together 🙂
