What we can learn from Jesus as a Healer

What is a healer?

Healers are encouragers.
They help others to see a better, a clearer picture.

Jesus healed with love, not with medicine.
He healed with words, with his “knowing”
that there is no illness or death.

He wasn’t more magical than anyone else is –
he just had a different consciousness of life
and that went from his words and his hands into others.

He helped people believe in their own power.

Through his knowing and giving of unconditional love,
even people who simply touched him got healed.

WHY?

Because they had faith.
Jesus never said he was a healer –
he did what he was meant to do –
he was a loving presence.
He lived the Christ consciousness.

He was like you are, like I am.

BUT he couldn’t heal everyone.

Only the ones who believed that he was their hero, their healer.

He was the Encourager
the one who gave others something to believe in.

That’s what writers do – that’s what musicians do.

We are ALL healers in our own way!!!

What the hard thing to do was –
and what took Jesus 30 years to finally become the Christ,
was simply to get past the disbelieves that he is worthy
of the magical power inside of him that is inside of everyone else as well.

He had to remember that miracles exist every second of our lives.

He probably wandered from country to country
to learn about the great modalities of healing.There are some evidences that someone like Jesus
was in India, in Africa, Egypt and other places.

That means he went to other places to learn from them.
He was open to learn about other cultures and integrated that
In his own life.

We don’t know anything
about more than 20 years of his life,
it is a big mystery to us.

And it doesn’t really matter.
What does matter is what he taught us –

and that is unconditional love –
which doesn’t mean to let others exploit you –
if they do wrong by you or others:

Open up your mouth and don’t just nod and say:
it is okay, I love you anyway.

Speak your truth.

If you tell someone he/she is healed,
then really KNOW it and don’t just say it with a little doubt in your mind.
Know it, understand it, imagine it, bring it forth –
trust your power –
and keep that person in your vortex of happiness and bliss.

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!

Rise in love, don’t fall…

Falling in love is one thing. Rising in love is another.
It often starts with the fall until you rise together.

Rising in love means that nothing and no one will be able to break the promises and bonds you give each other and that you live your love every day.

It starts with you as a person. Finding yourself and your purpose on earth in the first place. It’s when both of you are whole and happy within that you will be able to give each other love and look at each other with love.

Then little things won’t bother you because you understand that they are part of the other.

If you are single, do yourself a favor and focus on yourself. You will meet the right person when you are ready to start over.

If you are too focused on the need of being with someone, you don’t get to enjoy life the way you should.

Life is a gift, a present – and present is the magical word in this sentence.

Be present with yourself, be a present to yourself. Enjoy being by yourself, having no one to answer to but yourself.

Only then can you hear the call of your true love after all!

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!

The American Dream?

The moment comes when you realize
You’ve walked through pain, believed the lies.

And you did it with sincerity –
You trusted wrong security.

Your life seemed great, you did what they said –
You understood you’d soon be dead.

So you had to make things right –
You listened, never questioned, you followed with pride.

The “American Dream” – the american life –
But what if someone pulled out a knife –

And killed you in this moment, now –
Would you say you truly lived somehow?

Would the people you know say you truly lived?
That you saw this life as a gift?

Or would they say, you lived a lie –
You hardly took the time to say “hi”?!

What would leave behind?
Were you numb – or were you kind?

How many people have you touched –
Were you able to inspired much?

Are you who you want to be –
Are you able to set your spirit free?

Or are you stuck inside your mind
Living for the future, to the present blind?

So with these questions asked –
And knowing that life may not last –

What are you going to do today?
Will you live life in your own, unique way?

Laugh…

…at everything that feels weird to you, from now on.

Smile out of joy about the absurdity of the illusion!

When you recognize everything happens FOR you, in order to wake you up – in accordance to your plan… then you will build up no more negative situation.

Everything that others say to you is said through the filter of their experience.

Often they don’t want you to make the same mistakes.

Can you be angry or upset with someone, if s/he only wants to protect you?

Life is not here to get you… life is here so you can experience what your soul had planned long ago…

So break free from illusion…

You have a message to bring forth, into this world.

In order to awaken to it, you will get as many wake up calls as you need…

Fear is only the messenger that you haven’t arrived to yourself yet.

Wear the crown of yourself, walk your path with pride – not because you are better than anyone – but because it is YOUR path – yours alone!

Only you can truly understand your message!

Your path is incomparable to any other.

Why do you turn around to compare your petals to others when each rose on a rosebush is different, has its own energy?

You are not meant to be like someone else. You are you, with all your patterns, scars, stubborness, kindness, tenderness, unique sensuatlity and adornment.

Fill these lines with more – find more unique abilities within you – this is just a scratch on the surface of who you are meant to be…

If words inspire you, play with them, write them down.

Become REAL by REALizing that everything but love is an illusion.
No words within two sentences mean the same.

No two people in the same situation will go through the same experience.

Everything you went through in your life, formed you as well as other people.

So have compassion.

Live your life fully, without worrying about others.

That does not mean to not care – but the only one YOU can be there for to 100% – is YOU!

You, soul, made the choice to come to earth at this very moment.
Now and now and – NOW!

There is no more past, there is only the now that passes by before you can even think about “now” (Say it and there is another now) and the future, which appears in the time of now after the now (get it now?).

This world is an extension of your dreams – you can dream of something and manifest it here.

If you open your barriers and allow yourself to dream without neglecting yourself and regretting for not realizing things sooner, things will happen rapidly.

Suddenly

And suddenly it clicks – and you know.

You just do.

You know you are unique, you are divine and special and no one in this world will ever be able to take this feeling of selflove and self-appreciation away from you…

You stand there, in the middle of the street – with this overwhelming sensation – and the world changes around you.
That what you questioned ever since you were a teenager (basically yourself) crystalizes into knowing.

Your eargerness turns into a flowing energy of inner peace and the sensation that you are guided and always on the right path.
You can breath again – and this one breath of clarity feels like it’s the first breath you have ever taken… and in a way that’s just what happened:

Because… you breath as a new person. An aware person. A person who shifted from an agelong seeker to someone who found himself.

You know that, since you are different, there is no need to compete – no need to seek, to compare, to doubt.

No one has ever walked your path – so there is no hurry to get somewhere – where are you going – you are walking the path your inner being has chosen for you… so you will always be on the right track.

Realize that as long as you are aware of your true nature, you will always be intuitively guide. Walk in the knowing that everything is divinely planned, put your unique vibrations consciously into this world, enjoy everything moment that is given to you – and you will go beyond greateness while achieving your wildest dreams!
