    The stages of the journey to freedom – a book intro

    Freedom is waiting on the other shore This title came to me even before I had written a single word. These words were in my mind as a guideline what this book is all about:  It’s about a journey to freedom, about going on adventures and exploring other shores but also about the waiting part of this journey, of things that are holding you back, the fear of leaving the safe shore, the life you already know. Sometimes the journey needs patience or stepping back. These kinds of journeys come in cycles, in the process of letting go, of healing and transformation and then beginning anew.  The journey to freedom…

    A journey with the tides

    Every journey starts with the first rays of hope. It’s this nudge that let you go for undiscovered places, the excitement for unknown paths. It starts with you catching the light, letting the thoughts and emotions flow, getting things cleared that are holding you back. Every journey is stepping into the healing and refreshing energy of nature, it’s trusting and letting things unfold. It’s being in awe, experiencing comfort, the inner peace and freedom you’ll find within. Every journey starts with the decision from the heart, the courage to walk with your heart as your lighthouse. It’s remembering your ocean within, the waves of your soul, the treasures and abundance…

    What does freedom look like?

    Is freedom a place you can choose, a place where you feel home and you belong? Is it the choice to leave the known behind, letting go of the old? Is freedom timeless, or the time you choose to spend with what makes you feel alive and joyful? Is it choosing something that gives your life a touch of eternity? Is freedom earning and spending your resources and energy for something that is meaningful to you, that gives your life and others purpose? Is freedom being connected to a source that makes your life flow in abundance? Is freedom only a feeling that you have access to wherever you are,…

    Step into joy – The endless summer

    I want to tell you a story about summer, about a time when you felt so free because the holidays started, about a time when you woke up in the morning without worrying what might come your way, when you were excited about the day and the adventures you were going to experience. You know this summer feeling when no one bothers you with tasks to do, when you don’t feel anxious about the things you have to face, a time when you could put all these expectations weighing on you aside and only be yourself, experiencing new things, getting to play the whole day in the sun. These days…

    On the way

    On the way What is behind the rain? A life like a movie? Where I can dive deep into a world I’ve never seen before? Where I can discover the magic of the ocean? Where will I go, when this life seems so far away?  Who do I want to become? I’m on the way, even if I can’t see the horizon, even if I don’t know where to start. I’m already on my way, searching for silence, for moments of peace within. I know I have to go, even if I feel scared at times. I can’t wait any longer. I’ll catch the rain, every drop and let them…

    When I started to listen, I stepped into the healing journey of my life

    Disconnection I went into a burnout episode recently. Although I thought that I had all the tools to prevent this, I was sad and depressed and didn’t know what to do and why it has happened to me again. Why did I fall off the bandwagon and get into the mode of running through my life feeling disconnected from myself, feeling lost as if all the joy in my life has abandoned me? I was so disconnected from how I want to feel, from how I dream my life could be. I missed the feeling of aliveness, when you explore new things or go on little trips and adventures, the…

    Live a life without regrets

    When I sat in the chair not knowing if life has a tomorrow for me, I watched the waves and cried tears of regret. With every tear that was running down my face a dream, a missed opportunity, all the things I hadn’t done flowed down my cheeks. I felt responsible for things I wasn’t responsible for. I was only responsible for my own life. I wasn’t responsible for the happiness of my mother who had depression her whole life. I wasn’t responsible for the things that happened to me in my childhood, but I’m now responsible for my healing and living a life that is joyful and meaningful. I believe…

    Why do you want to follow your dreams?

    Why do you want to achieve your dreams? And if you can’t find an answer to this question at once, know that there is a reason, a deeper meaning why this dream comes up in your mind over and over again. If you can dream and visualize it, then this dream is for you. It is meant for you to pursue it. A fact I had to remind myself of multiple times: If you can dream it, you can do it. Sometimes you can’t put the ‘Why’ into proper words. It’s more a feeling, an intuition that is calling you to go for it.When you can’t find your ‘Why’ ask…

    I start to choose anew

    My body and mental health are showing me the signs: I’m in burnout mode I feel exhausted, tired, depressed. I can’t sleep in the night because I worry too much about my future. I don’t want to get out of bed in the morning, things and activities that normally bring me joy leave me sad, everything seems to be grey although the spring season paints a colourful picture. I feel disconnected and I fear what the next days might bring: I’m afraid of my job. I’m afraid that I get ill again. I’m afraid of losing my joy and the connection to my heart and soul. I’m afraid of losing…

    What are you passionate about?

    What you are passionate about can reveal so much more of who you really are than any education you went through, any job title or your past.We are used to put people into boxes because of their work, income, status or networks they are in. Asking someone what she or he is doing for a living only scratches the surface. Maybe they do this job because they can’t see another way or it’s the least inconvenient option.Maybe they chose this work because it seemed to be a dream job once and now became a trap, a hamster wheel they chose over freedom, a choice out of fear.Maybe they have sold…
