Archives For Everything is Energy

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

If you are not growing, you are dying.

Emotionally, financially, spiritually,mentally, physically you must grow in order to feel fully alive. The energy of growth is vital for your well being. Not just to learn, do and create for the sake of it, but because it will bring more wellness to you and your life.

 

Is there something , that you have been wanting to do for quote some time, but have been prolonging and procrastinating?

May be you want to start eating healthier, quit smoking, climb the Kilimanjaro mountain, swim with the dolphins, write a book, leave your job and set up a coffee shop, start a blog, volunteer at a homeless shelter? You can actually do all these things.

Doing them will help you grow as a person and will give you more energy to do the routine things, too.

But there is only one problem with growth. Growth is hard.Can you imagine a grain of wheat nicely tucked under the ground, warmed by the soil, watered by the rain and when the spring comes this seed has to burst. It looks more like a destruction . It is a motion, that creates incredibly powerful change for that seed,but that is growth. Growth uses energy,but it also creates new possibilities. The energy of growth is destructive for the seed,but it is rejuvenating for the plant itself.

if you are not growing you are dying

To grow means to be uncomfortable and avoid too much time in your comfort zone. I know how easy it is to do it. As human beings you have the natural ability to avoid pain and look for pleasure and comfort. But most times the magic happens when you go outside of your comfort zone.

Be the person, that sings the songs from your heart, feel the rain on your skin and kisses everyone, that you love every time you see them. 

Be the person, that takes change and growth as a life lasting activity and almost always finds something else to do, to learn, to improve, no matter the pain , no matter the challenges and the so called failuries. It is just a ride!

Be well, be wild and enjoy the ride! 

Confidence is power

Confidence is power. It’s the energy that hold you together no matter what. As the saying goes:You are confident, not because they like you , but even if they don’t. 

What is confidence any way? 

According to Oxford dictionary confidence is: “the feeling or belief that one can have faith in or rely on someone or something; it also a feeling of self-assurance arising from an appreciation of one’s own abilities or qualities.

It is unique driving force that truly help you along the way. Some people confuse pride and confidence. In my opinion is also easier to be proud than confident. Pride is a momentary glow of self believe, but confidence is a constant light of belief in yourself. 

It is not very exciting doing anything without having confidence in yourself and believing in yourself. I know that for a fact. 

confidence is power

I remember my early days in high school. I was extremely shy as a person and only spoke with a few friends, which I felt very conformable with. I almost avoided going to any parties, even if secretly I wanted to be there. The main reason for that was my extreme lack of confidence. I was so shy and self focused, I had a stutter and I used to find it incredibly hard to make new contacts or even be in a company of people, that I don’t know. 

It took one day to change all that. To this day I remember it as clear as day. The year before last year of high school I got a notebook and asked all my friends and some of the teachers to write something. Something meaning anything. It was a great way to communicate without having to say much as I was still struggling to talk properly because of my stutter. 

Everybody was so kind and generous in writing things and drawing pictures, but a few lines written by my  English teacher changed my life forever. I am forever grateful and it is another prove, that when the student is ready the teacher will appear.. She wrote” Such an intelligent and smart girl,like you should have many friends. Don’t be afraid to follow your dreams and I am sure you will archive great things. Believe in yourself! “

Those words have stuck in my heart forever. I remember walking that day after I read them down the corridor of the school and almost feeling like I am going to fly. I carry seeds of that feeling with me all the time. 

Since that day I wasn’t the same person because someone believed in me,but most importantly I have started to believe in myself and have started to be more confident. 

Ever since then looking back into it now I had a long a way to go, but nevertheless that moment truly changed they way I live. 

I want to give 3 very simple tips to help you feel confident,but most importantly believe in  yourself.

1.Trust your gut feeling -I have mentioned this many many times before, that your intuition knows what to do. 

2.Just do it –if you have been thinking about getting something done, the sooner you do it the sooner you will be able to focus on something else 

3.Don’t compare yourself to others– I can relate how hard this can be,but it’s worth the effort to remember that everyone is walking their own journey. You walk your path with confidence. 

Be well,be wild and enjoy the ride! 

P.S I intent to post a blog a day for 365 days. This is day 2. I strongly believe, that we are what we repeatedly do. 

Thank you for your love and support, 

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.

Simple chilli beans-easy comfort food

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,
