Privilege to be alive

I can’t describe how grateful I am to live in this world of opportunities, to live in the present, to live in this kind of time where we are free to believe what we want to; where we can promote who we are and what we do on our own (youtube, facebook, instagram); where we can connect in ways that have never been possible before.
 
I am writing this in the USA while my mother can read this in Germany – as well as others can read this on other countries, if I allow them to…
 
We live in a world where we have the freedom of speech and are able to read and write (that’s a priviledge!!! Not everyone was able to do this 100 years ago and not everyone everywhere can do it yet) – and where we have access to knowledge everywhere.
 
… we are not being forced to go to places we don’t want to go to…
 
… we are all connected through pictures we share, words we speak – and yet we can control who those words go to, even within facebook.
 
Are you aware of these beautiful opportunities in your lives?
Are you aware that you alone are able to change your perception of the world every day?
 
Yes, we are being bombarded with (scary) information every day, but it’s up to you to tune out of it – stop watching the news all day or watching scary movies that your body actually lives through: did you know that your mind does not know whether someting is fiction or reality???
If you watch someone chasing someone else, your heart will race as well – and not because you are in danger, but because your body believes you are being chased (and possibly killed).
 
You can be calm if you choose to, by listening to soft music, taking baths or taking a beautiful walk in the park when the sun shines on your face and warms your heart…
 
…as within so without…
 
See yourself as beautiful, look into the mirror and look at what makes you special!
 
Believe in yourself and the world will believe in you!!!
 
Have a beautiful Sunday – and remember: it is a privilege to live here and now. Choose your books, your looks, your movies and your company – and you will rise and be joyful in this lifetime.
I love you, my dear soulfamily!

Advice for Empaths from an Empath

Sometimes we pick up way too much about what other people think or feel – and all of this can be quite overwhelming…

I live in New York now, and if I wouldn’t have learned to cope with my emotions and to respect my own feelings – I would have never survived a DAY in this city!

So here are a few steps for you to take, to live a happier life…

 

Step 1
acknowledge that you are an empath and that you are able to feel the emotions of everyone around you.
When your mood changes quickly, chances are that these are not your own emotions, but emotions of other people around you… acknowledge this and learn to filter what truly comes from you – and what comes from somebody else…

Step 2
learn to control this ability.
Learn to decipher whether what you feel are your own emotions or if they are from other people around you.
You are ABLE to feel others but to do this day and night would truly KILL you – or at least stop you from existing individually – and you would live someones’ elses’ life.
in other words: passively.
Learn to “hear” your own voice and your heart.

Step 3
focus on you – be self-ish, not self-less!!! and I don’t mean ego-istic – but: ever heard of: if you don’t love yourself, no one will?!? There is a reason for it. Not everybody is like you – and people out there will not always wonder how you are and what you are doing… so… the most important person in the room and around you is you. Again: FOCUS ON YOU

Step 4
Once you have learned to listen to yourself, you can take control of what you feel and decide for yourself if you want to focus on you or the people/person around you.

When you are happy, you don’t need others to make you happy…

You will feel your own happiness – and CAREFUL – this happiness is contagious :*
Live from the heart, stop to “worry” about others, only then can you start to care for others as well
