To Rise in Love…

To fall in love, to rise in love, to stay in love and to never let this feeling of newness, deepest admiration and romance go…

To make each other laugh and find these special times that are so unique to the two of you that no one else could ever replace them… all this takes work.

Inner work and work with each other.

It’s the most rewarding work and the more of it you realize together, the happier you will be.

When I met Tim 4 years ago, I did not know what kind of rollercoaster ride we would go through in the first two years.

We were never able to commit because circumstances didn’t allow it.

But with the decision of working together as songwriters and the decision that we want to cherish each other every day, life changed and now we have been on the road together for almost 2 years.

I can look back and smile with all my heart…

BECAUSE I would have NEVER wanted one single day to be different.

We both went through tremendous change and if one of these days wouldn’t habe existed, we wouldn’t be where we are today.

I gave up on a lot of so-called-dreams so I could start co-creating with my partner and have even better, more exciting dreams with him together!

Some of my dreams were living and staying in New York (NYC can be very lonely when you don’t have the man you love by your side and the dating rules, I will NEVER understand…).

Becoming a star on Broadway was a dream of my childhood – it was an idea and an escape. I can use my voice in many ways. I have written my own songs since I was 13 and now I can actually reach people through “From the Aether”.

I’d rather be free than bound to peoples’ opinion every day of my life…

I grew out of those dreams and made something new, something bigger, together with Tim.

I look back at us and realize that I would have never dreamed that I could be so happy…

That I could call this man, who has touched my heart in so many ways, my partner.

All that would have not been possible if Tim and I wouldn’t have done our own inner work.

He started to call me into his life, years before I even thought of coming to New York – and would we not have met through a show I once did – paths could have gone completely different paths…

But it was fate!!!

Love can be dirty and hurtful at times. You need to look into yourself, forgive yourself, the people around you and love yourself the most.

Stop letting others tell you who you are – and find out who you truly are and what you are meant to do here on this planet.

You will attract the right person when you are ready.
And with this wonderful person you will attract the right situations and things you want in your life (a home, adventure, everything your heart desires).
I am proof of that. But that will be another story

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.

Love will come to you…

…when the time is right. True love.

It took me many years of learning, dreaming, self work and even when Tim came into my life it took another 1.5 years when we finally truly committed, knowing that we wanted a life together.

I can tell you that even if not every day is without misunderstandings, every day gets better.

It was a long time coming but the time did come. And I do believe that there is the perfect person for each of us out there.

Nevertheless, we have to stop desiring that the person has to be perfect. S/he should be allowed to be imperfect. Have flaws, make you scream at times.
If we want the other person to accept us as who we are, we gotta give the other person the chance to be her/himself without the desire to change him/her.

Appreciate those little imperfections. It’s those that you would miss most, those that make the person special.

You don’t want to have a robot and you don’t want to have a person who is only strong and flawless. Wouldn’t that be kind of boring?

Don’t you want to discover each other? Talk about the past, get to know each other and have days where one of you is weak and needs comfort?

True love accepts the past without bringing the past into the present or future.

It’s true understanding of the other person that will bring you as close as two people can be.

Don’t listen to friends or family when it comes to matters of the heart. Let them be there for you when you need to talk and let them show you their perspective, but in the end it’s only about what your heart truly feels.

Not your ego or your mind, your heart.

Your intuition will guide you when you are on the right path.
Love will come to you when the time is right.

So give it a chance when it knocks on the fortress of your heart and let it in.

Whoever sees something special in you is worth exploring.

You will see that this journey never ends.
But it starts with you. And you alone!
