Archives For Everything is Energy

You are a living electromagnetic field so as every feeling and every thought that you have.

The only sure thing in life is change.
The summer is over, but there are these beautiful and most colourful days ahead that only an autumn wind, rain and sun can create.
The Autumn Equinox is the beginning of the coming into darker days and also the preparation for the winter cold. After the almost perfect balance on the 23-rd of September the days will nicely become shorter and shorter.

As a woman, who feels very connected to the amount of sun light I feel already the coming autumn, probably you, too.

I am making plans for cooking and lots of baking in the next few weeks. Yesterday I made broccoli and potato soup and also ratatouille in my clay dish in the oven. I had it cooked slowly for about 4 hours. 
The changes of the seasons always fascinates me. The circles of life never stop, no matter what. The wheel keeps going and I am so grateful to be here to be a part of this amazing and mystical ride, called life. It is crazy, weird and beautiful all at once.
You are not the same person as you were yesterday, your mind is constantly changing it’s mind and your body is constantly renewing itself till your last breath.

Every season is nice in it’s own way. But autumn is where everything is so colourful and it is also time for comforting nostalgia and cosy blankets.

I love the evenings in autumn in dusk. When it’s still early in the evening, but it’s a bit dark and I am sitting in the living room surrounded by my favourite people, sipping tea and chopping apples and pears. 

Today is also a day for balance. Balance between dark and light. I do believe in balance even I don’t try to achieve it. I believe in the invisible balance of things and non things and my role is simply to give love and share my wisdom daily.
Today I want to wish you a Happy Equinox and may wonderful beauty surround you. May the abundance of the season fill not just your homes, but your hearts, too. May you find comfort, warmth and love in the caring presence of the ones you love.

Lots of love, 

Be well and enjoy the ride,

Has your ego been bruised lately? If it has, you are certainly not alone. According to Sigmund Freud, the ego is that part of your personality that prevents you from acting on your most basic urges and it also helps you achieve a balance between your moral and idealistic standards.
While that might sound confusing, we all know how easily our egos can get hurt. You could think of your ego as a separate part of your personality. Sometimes you ego can help you, but other times it can hurt you.
Your ego loves to mess with you. The ego thrives on having power and control. The ego might also love playing the victim, making you feel worse. The ego can be self-centered and greedy, and it can drive you to the point of craziness.
The ego can cause you to become delusional, especially when you are trying to overcome a challenge. One of the best things you can do when going through a challenge is to say goodbye to your precious ego.
When you say goodbye to your ego, even if only temporarily, it can be very freeing. When you let go of your ego, you open up your energy to bigger and better things. Letting go of your ego allows you to transcend things like emotional attachments, other people’s perceptions, and their judgments of you.
When you detach from your ego, the ego loses it power over you and this is one of the best reasons to let it go. Letting go of your ego also allows you to get in touch with your higher self, or that part of you that connects you to spirit.
When you connect with your higher self either through meditation or other spiritual pursuits, you may receive valuable insights about your life and you may even gain a better understanding of your life choices and your life plan and how it all fits in within the Divine Plan.

Why Its Time to Say Goodbye to the Ego When Overcoming a Challenge
This understanding will give you peace and a sense of purpose. The truth comes from connecting with your higher self, which is actually located within you as you follow your inner guidance.
Each of is connected with and part of a greater whole, a bigger picture, a sort of Universal Consciousness. We are all part of a greater reality above and beyond our own. Just as a single droplet of water becomes one with the ocean, your individual consciousness becomes one with something much bigger than you can see. Letting go of the ego allows you to view your life from a much broader focus.
This divine field of energy connects us all, and it allows us to transcend and be a part of something much greater than self, which is actually located within you as you follow your inner guidance.

This divine field of energy connects us all, and it allows us to transcend and be a part of something much greater than ourselves. When overcoming challenges, it’s easy to get your feelings hurt. Sometimes you have to put aside your ego, for the sake of healing.

Everyone faces challenges and difficulties in life and no one gets out unscathed. Going through a difficult process can give you strength and tenacity and it can give you a lot more appreciation for your life.

Every challenge gives you a new opportunity to transform and to change. Every time you overcome a challenge, you become a more loving and compassionate person. It may not feel like it at the time, but facing challenges can be empowering.

When you can learn to free yourself from your ego, you release yourself from the armor that surrounds you. Doing so allows you to free yourself from vanity and pride as well. If you are facing a challenge, one of best things you can do for yourself is to release your attachment to your ego.

Your ego can produce feelings of insecurity and inferiority – which is not healthy. Releasing yourself from this protective shell, allows you to embrace your true self as you release yourself from others opinions and judgments.

When you can learn to fully embrace yourself, for all your flaws and eccentricities, you will begin to realize how beautiful the light of your soul really is.

Letting go of your ego allows you to release limiting beliefs that you used to hold true. When you have overcome a challenge, there may be a big learning curve as you walk a new path. When you release your ego, you allow a new you to come forth, a healthier you.

 

While your ego does have positive qualities, sometimes you have to say goodbye to it, so you can find out your true strengths.

New year resolutions

Ivelina  —  January 1, 2015

Have you ever made a new year resolution and stuck with it? 

Since it’s the 1st of January,I thought this is a very interesting subject to talk about.

New year resolutions are very popular in this first few weeks of the new year.

A lot people feel, that since the calendar has turned another year there is something new, that has to be done.In another words just because it’s not the same year any more there is this kind of almost forced “new year,new you” kind of non sense. 

Here is what I think of it. You can start anything new any time you like. The best way to succeed with any new resolution, habit or anything of that kind is to make a decision that focuses on the outcome. The rest is just a wind in the right direction and an open doors to get it done.

We get a minimum of one opportunity a day to help someone, to be more present with our loved ones, to feel valued, to achieve small victories that may seem insignificant, but they make the big picture shine bright. I am not a great fan of hype,may be I used to be, I don’t know. 

I know, that everything, that you want to achieve or aspire to starts with you. Starts with you making a decision. Your actions speak louder that any words and your intentions are pure fuel to get things done. 

Most people think , that making a decision is hard. Yes, that is true, in my opinion too.I am also one of these people that like to analyse things.

On  the other hand, do you know what is harder than making a decision? Procrastinating and watching opportunities pass by because of in decision. You are much better off taking action and learning, rather than waiting and thinking that you have to have it in a perfect order to get gong. There always going be books unread, conversations unfinished, dishes unwashed, meals uncooked and places to go to, and things to……..  

There is a great saying, that I like, which states that if you can not find the answer to your question you might have to change the question. So stop worrying about the how you are going to get it done, focus on your why and keep going. keep doing, keep loving and keep creating! Take a deep breath and just be.

So when it comes to a new year resolutions the best way to go about is: Keep it simple. Add a raw salad to every meal, that you have, pay attention to your loved ones, be true to yourself, take small action towards your dreams daily.

Being present and honest with yourself is a sure way to be more productive. This will lead the way to pure results, because no matter what you are doing you will do it with gusto. 

So, remember, that you have to live with your decisions. You are free to make a decision, but you are the one who has to live with the consequences. 

To be successful means to be free in your terms and to be yourself in your terms. So go and create them. Step by step.Daily. Remember

Be well,be wild and enjoy the ride!
