#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! 🙂

SUGAR(free)BABE

Awesome yet so simple lunch! Boiled potatoes with Mango-Papaya-Curry paste and “egg-salt” (Kala Namak salt), cherry tomatoes and fresh parsley! Many carbs, low fat. Reminder to myself: decrease bad sugar and fat intake! And eat as much as you need – not less, not more! Motivation Saturday haha! Haven’t had cocolate tonight… success! 😀 (I am not saying that one should be restrictive [as long as it’s nutritious food], I just know that sugar is highly addictive and bad fats really do nothing good for your body, so I want to be able to live happily without them 🙂 It’s really just the temptation because “healthy food” is actually 1879725 times better and tastier! 🙂 )

Also I was driving today, first time in Germany since forever! Feels good to overcome such fears (however, rather respect in this case) and to just DO IT! Because in the end you’ll be okay and get more comfortable every second. So in case that any of you guys fears driving a bit… it’s ok. The roads are wide and even. Try driving in Portugal haha! ❤
