Every Day is a Holiday with you

I don’t need thanksgiving to remind me of how thankful I am.

Every morning I wake up to the most amazing, talented and inspirational man I have ever met and I am so grateful for that.

Tim, we have spent the last three Thanksgivings together and all of them were perfect.

The first one was making our own little turkey, the second was by almost moving out in order to move into our new home and this one was playing and having fun with Pokémon let’s go ☺️.

I don’t need holidays with you because every day with you is like a holiday for me…

I am thankful…

…for you putting up with me every day.

We have spent almost every minute together since we started our travels with our trailer and that is almost a year ago.

Being able to be in a 33 feet trailer and not going crazy around each other shows me how much you love me.

When I have my moments, you stay “Zen times Ten” and that alone is something very special!

I know you are the one I can turn to, whenever I need someone who listens to me.

You know what to say or how to hold me if I just need a hug.

If we have arguments, we get over them fast.

Even after 1.5 years of being together, we always find something more to talk about.

You inspire me to be all that I want to be and you take me as I am, you see me as who I really am and not as what my ego is trying to express.

This journey is the most beautiful and exciting journey of my life… the journey with you, wherever it takes us.

Sharing our music with the world has become our purpose.

You are so wise and know how to use words and weave them into music and you help me express myself better, too.

You are beautiful in every way, soul, body and mind. And complement who I am in every way.

You make me laugh.

Giggling with you in bed and not being able to stop is one of my favorite moments with you and I can never have enough of these moments.

I don’t need Thanksgiving in order to remind me of how grateful i am.

Because I am thankful waking up next to you every morning, making us coffee and enjoying whatever life brings up next!

Thank you for being the most amazing partner I could ask for!

Union

He saw her shine.

And then for a while she vanished, from his heart and from his mind.

But when he saw her again, the magic returned and the feeling of “I know you!!!”

Before they met again, she had a vision. They would share the bond of a sacred kiss… and fear touched her mind, would she be ready for the sacredness that was now to come?

She would not let him in too close…

… there she was, this beautiful maiden with whom he felt this heavenly connection. Who was she? Was she the angel of his dreams?

…she tried everything, not to let him touch her but when He sang for her and her songs came from her lips, she could no longer deny the fire.

They looked each other in the eyes and in this second, all their doubts faded away and they remembered. Their connection was old… older than this planet.

A powerful pull drew them together and next thing they knew was that their lips touched and the magic began.

I will cherish this moment forever and ever, for I have found my queen!, he thought to himself while he held her in his arms.

Uncover Me

I want you to uncover me.
To peel my layers of.
What is inside is just for you to see,
You’ll find a new me to love.

I’ll share with you my insecurities,
I’ll hide from you no more.
Continue the search, dive into the depth of me,
You’ll never feel forlorn.

Cause I will find you within my forbidden walls,
Where so far only I was traveling far and wide.
You could hear that inner call,
When I looked for a true man by my side.

Now you are here and I feel fear,
But I’ll no longer give in to it.
I was afraid you’d disappear,
Once we would be intimate.

But you proved me wrong,
The rose has lost her thorns.
It’s why I sing this song,
To show I’m no longer torn.

You’ve shown me now that I can trust,
And love with all my heart.
The past is gone, it turned to dust,
Our future is the start.

So come now and let me uncover
The layers, wrapped around your soul.
We’ve made it this far with each other,
It’s time to lose control.

When you are with me

I forget the world around me.

I feel your presence, your essence, your soul…
and everything else, every negative thought or doubt,
every distraction around me is gone.

In the moment of silence when I just look at you or feel the touch of your hand on mine, the world stands still.

There is no place where I would rather be.

When I lay in your arms,
I find back to myself again…
what greater gift can you make me than this?

Real happiness lies within ourselves ~
and if someone shows you love,
inner peace and freedom simply through his presence,
enjoy these moments because they are precious,
as is the person you are with!

No ego ~ pure unconditional love
and respect for your divine being.

Could I ever ask for more?

When I am with you,
every second is precious,
every moment I am close to you is endless and beautiful.

Oh how I want to look into your eyes,
taste your kisses
and feel the warmth of your smile on my skin.

We never know what happens
in the next hour, second, moment –
I don’t take it for granted when I am with you.

Let us embrace each other with love
and forget time –
indulging in every timeless moment.

Love changes You

When you deeply love someone from the core of your heart,
you feel him, his thoughts, his pain, his longing,
your vibrations become one.

It has nothing to do with a physical act and connection –
but everything to do with the (brain of the) heart.

You shiver when he says your name,
even if it’s not next to you, not out loud – but only in his mind.

The universe throws signs at you,
sings you maybe don’t even want to see
because you are scared of something so intimate,
something, you have never felt before.

You are in shock, realizing that this is real –
and you don’t speak, just look around,
just observe how he is doing,
making sure that your angel wings grow
and you can stand there, next to him,
behind him, as his angel,
to protect him from any harm in this world.

This love surprises you.
It makes you feel vulnerable and naked.

Love changes you – however:
even if there are moments of disbelief,
moments of doubt –
having felt this love once in your life,
will change you completely
and you will never go back to your old self,
but start a new, one that knows what true love is
and who embraces it
with every fibre of her body, mind and soul.

SHINE!!!

Shine!

Leave your worries behind and allow your light to come through you!

You were meant to shine, not to stay in darkness.

Of course, without darkness you would have never found the light…

You are here for a reason – you are here because one day, many years ago, your soul wanted to come to this planet to experience contrast.

Pain, suffering, worrying – happiness, gratitude, joy – and so many other states of mind.

You wanted your heart to soar, to fly, to express itself.

See, your mind is a tool – it is not your boss, it’s not meant to rule!

The problem is that the subconscious mind picks up on so much negativity all around you that you think those thoughts are truly yours…

But once you realize that you steer your boat towards the shadows, you can take a different turn and sail towards the light.

The truth is: you can use this tool (your mind) to change your life by pouring more and more good thoughts into your consciousness.

Focus on the sun within your heart – and you will no longer be able to stay in the shadows.

Once the sun has awakened within you, all you can do is shine!

So be what you are the best, be the sun, even if the world around you is filled with shadows.

Believe in yourself – just as much as you believe that the sun shines every day, whether the clouds are in front of the sun or not.

You were born to Shine!

Celebrate Life – or how to overcome a low vibrational state

My daily ritual is to celebrate life, in whatever form it comes!

Every day, even if I don’t feel good, I try to remind myself of the most beautiful things that the world has given to me – and the beauty that is yet to come!

Life is so grand and beautiful and every day can be amazing if you let it… if you don’t know how to start celebrating life, here are some things I did when I was feeling low:

I don’t meditate, I LIVE in meditation and with that I mean as conscious as I can…
There are exercises you can do like listening to inspirational speakers, listen to your favorite song in the morning when you get up and dance in front of the mirror. Get your energy up and start right there!

I personally love to watch and listen to motivational videos of Abraham Hicks, Bashar, Wayne Dyer, Neale Donald Walsh, myself (yes I record things and listen to my own voice – why? because that’s the voice in my head – and I train it to speak in beautiful, positive affirmations that way) and many more…

If I am really down, or low on energy, I listen to binaural beats – e.g. chakra clearing and whatever else there is out there – or I watch an amazing movie that inspires me.

As a singer I write my feelings down and turn them into songs. Sometimes I listen to my favorite musical and sing the lines out loud, that always helped me to come back to a feeling of bliss.

You do not have to spend thousands of dollars on courses of how to be motivated – there is so much free stuff you can do for yourself before you need to pay for therapy.

I had a depression and within less than a year I recovered from it.
I was lucky that my mother took me back in and did a great job lifting me up.

I also had a wonderful therapist who was more like a life-coach than a psychotherapist: after talking a little bit about my past and getting to know each other, she encouraged me to have goals again and only talk about the future instead of letting the past get me down… and the moment I got back on track, she said: Okay, Helen, you are ready now. I don’t want to see you here in therapy again!
I was also very grateful that my mother noticed the change early enough (although I lived in Austria and she in Germany at that point) to tell me that she felt I had a depression and gave me the choice to come back to her.

It made me face my inner demons, allowed me to look back with gratefulness and put my past behind me. Yes, it can come back and haunt you at times – but if that happens, see it as a nightmare and let it go.

Torn between many worlds and ideas for the longest time,  I finally realized what I truly wanted and went for it!

What is important to know about a depression is that it can sneak up on you – whether you’ve had a “good” life (according to society) or a “bad” life.

If it were up to society to judge that, I would have had nothing to ever complain about and had a “good” life (from the outside)… that’s what I was telling myself, too. And I felt that I had no right to have a depression… “You have everything you ever wished for. You have fabulous parents, wonderful friends – you are not allowed to have a depression.” Well, guess what – I did have it and I went through more than people who think they know me, will ever realize.

But those things are the things that helped me understand others in a more profound way – and I am grateful that I went through everything in the past.
I would not change a single day and a single choice I made…

I am in an incredibly beautiful state of mind and allow myself to follow my visions every day – and so should you.

If you are in a depressed state, or don’t feel good at the moment, know that it is okay. You are allowed to go through whatever it is you are going through… and for the “outside” things you can do:

Try binaural beats and positive affirmations.

Record yourself reading books or lines that can positively effect you!

Realize: you are perfect!
It’s not about being perfect in the way others want you to be, it’s about realizing that NO ONE will ever be the way YOU are! There is not ONE person out there who can fulfill your purpose other than you!

Now go out there (or stay at home) and celebrate life, for it is good to you – know that the more you celebrate life, the more beautiful things will happen to you! And if you feel overwhelmed or think that life is not good to you… then see who told you that: was that the little inner child that wants more attention, was that a tiny voice inside of you that wants to hold you back? Where are these thoughts coming from!

Every day is worth exploring… and enjoying!
The world needs you out there – so celebrate life in every way!
