Live like a Gypsy

Don’t be too obsessed with the things you ‘own’
because that’s all an illusion.

We don’t own anything on this planet,
we are guests who are here to enrich
the world with our present energy.

Take your heart with you,
everywhere you go
and make your heart your home.

We don’t live forever
but we are here to enjoy that which is given to us by spirit.
Live in the present, not in the past or future
and make change your best friend
because change is the only thing that is consistent in your life.

Trust in a Higher Power
and that it will guide you,
if you stop thinking too much and rather feel.

Don’t try to grasp things you can’t control.
Respect the earth and her nature,
because this is something
that can’t be controlled, and it shouldn’t be.

Let go of people who aren’t right for you,
whether they are friends, lovers or family.
Anyone can be family,
but the title has to be earned.
Blood relationships do not automatically make you family.

Allow others to be free.
You have no right to control anyone but yourself.

Dream big and remind yourself daily
that you are powerful beyond measure,
that you are unique and anything you visualize can manifest.
But you need to free yourself from all the lies you learned
in school, on tv and on the streets.

No one has ever lived your life before,
so make it as special and as magical as you are able to.
Listen to your own voice not to someone in the radio.

By walking through the world without fear
of losing your possessions
and by letting go of what is holding you back,
you own everything because it’s all a part of you.

The minute you let go of control,
you will be guided by higher forces
which will show you the way.

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.

If you were god/dess…

…what would you do?

How would you feel?

Being god/dess means being limitless…

If god/the universe would give you the gift
to be god/dess for a day, would you walk like a god/dess,
talk like a god/dess?

What kind of energy would you express
and bring into this world?

Now, what if I told you, you are god/dess?
What if I told you, you are able to walk,
talk and BE God/dess every day?

Does this change your attitude to your daily life?

Don’t forget, this brings a huge
responsibility into your life.
YOU ARE GOD/DESS!!!

You -and you alone – are responsible for
how you walk, talk, feel – how you (re)act
and what you project into this world…

Can you embody your inner beauty,
your higher self, your god/dess for a day –
and the next – and the next?

We are so used to giving our power away
that it can be very hard to even stay
within our god/dess power for 2 minutes…
no more making others responsible for what
we say, do, feel.

That’s tough!

But learnable and the most freeing thing in this world!!!

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!

No ONE Way

There is no ONE way.

If someone tries to tell you you have to believe in God or you will end up in hell, this is not true.

There is not ONE religion, there are many.
Any religion that tells you it is the only religion, is wrong.

We live in a time of choices – and whatever is good for us is what we should live by.

We should be grateful for that.

There is not ONE way to live, there are many.
Whether you want to have a steady job in a city or live your life traveling and making money on the side – whether you dream of a better tomorrow or enjoy the moment as it is right here and now – that is up to you!

No ONE should be judged for being different – because we are all meant to be individuals, not robots trying to only live ONE way.

Think about that before you judge anyONE’s situation.
How you want to live is up to you alone – and everyone else has the right to do so as well!

It’s up to you!

After our recording session, Tim and I went to have an early breakfast at 5 am, before we went to sleep.

We were all by ourselves and it was very peaceful…

…except for the noise out of tv and radio.

Thank goodness that neither of us are ever listening to that bs that you hear on the news (tv and radio) and all of the commercials you have to listen to every 2 minutes.

I must honestly say that all I hear is “You must fear your life” when I truly listen – whether it is commercial or when it’s about what’s going on in this world.
And the sad thing is?

Most of the things we hear are made to scare us…

“If you don’t take this medicine, you will die or have a severe illness”.

BS!!!

You are not sick, your life is not threatened.

They threaten you and make you sick by letting you listen to all the crap out there, consciously and subconsciously…

YOU are POWERFUL.

Powerful enough to say “ENOUGH, I’m done. I’ve heard it all. I will not let others ruin my day, especially people I don’t know who interfere in my own life every day.”

Don’t make yourself depend on what is “out there” if no one can truly look inside of you, but you!

You are responsible for what you listen to. What you allow your body to eat every day, how you spend your daily life.

Are you going to talk about “bad news” and discuss things you can not change with everyone around you?

Will YOU spread good or bad news?!?

Will you go to the doctor with every little symptom that is corrupting your body and let him/her give you antibiotics – or are you going to find a natural way for you?

There is no more excuse nowadays.

You have every source you need.

Will you read a good book or are you going to fill your subconscious mind with horror pictures of people being killed, zombies rising from the dead?

Will you embrace someone today and say: “Hey, it’s great that you are in my life” or are you going to spread rumors about him/her?!?

Will you focus on what others think about you or will you let go and realize how great your life is and how wonderful you are?!?

I have so much more to say and this could be endless (enough to fill 10 books) but I will stop for now.

We have been watching so much TV and being confronted with lies we believe in, that our brain can only pick up so many words and has a limited attention span.

My last message here for the day:

I love you.
You are smart, brilliant people otherwise you wouldn’t have come so far.

You are masters, angel, here to spread positivity and love and you are needed in this world…

Let go of the lies and listen to the beauty inside your hearts.
Allow yourself to FEEL again.

There is so much fear out there – don’t let it stop you to love (yourself and others).

Go out there and shine today.
Time is of the essence. The more you believe in those lies, the more your system will shut down and you will deny yourself to see the beauty of this world.

Go out there with open eyes and remember who you truly are.
A being that has all the gifts it needs to survive anything in this world and make this place to paradise!

So much love to you!
