Being vulnerable and sensitive is where you find your strength

"I'm not good enough". How often do we not hear ourselves say this to ourselves? Or actually, we don't really hear it, otherwise we wouldn't pick on ourselves day in and day out. Is it our need to perform, win, advance, be excellent, be successful, be strong - and live up to other people's expectations - that make us exhausted, filled with anxiety and burned out? I think it is time to let ourselves be small and vulnerable. In those feelings we find our strength! Allowing to be hurt The day came, when I finally allowed myself to feel hurt, small and vulnerable. Doesn't sound like...

Ego or heart in the driver’s seat of your life?

The ego mind will fight until the end for it’s existence. It wants to be the driver of your life. However, if you let your heart be the driver - you'll surely experience more peace and joy in your life.   This morning I woke up slowly and sweetly. I hadn't even opened my eyes yet, but my mind started to form sentences, that felt very comforting and meaningful. So I grabbed a pen and some paper and wrote them down. Let me share these morning thoughts with you. How do we recognise the ego mind? The ego mind gets it’s fuel and nourishment...

Humanity raising into Love and Trust (WATCH VIDEO)

We are living crazy times. The whole world seems to be upside down. What higher lesson is there hidden - for all of us as a humanity? How can we transform, transmute fear into love? We need to understand, that everything is always in order in the Universe. As a humanity, we are invited to higher levels of consciousness, into a new reality of love, hope and trust. Enjoy the stories in the video! Let me know your thoughts in the comments section. I love you. Kindly, Monika   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRv5s9w4Uvw&t=1s...

Everything is energy

We have to start to embrace the fact that everything is energy. Your thoughts, words, actions and the feelings and emotions behind them—emanate an energy beyond your control. Even your feelings and emotions behind an unspoken word or action not taken, effects your energy field.   We can not escape any longer that all our thoughts, words and actions affects our energy field around us. You may call it aura or light body, or something else, but one thing is true, your thoughts and feelings, words and actions, affect not only your physical body, but also your etherical body, your light body. Your...

Your sensitivity is your superpower

Sometimes what we want the most is also what we will be cursing when we get it. Like your sensitivity. It can be both your superpower as well as your biggest reasons for anxiety and stress.   Yoga stuff A few years into my yoga practice, already now some 12 years ago since I started, I got more and more curious about the crazy stuff.  You know, levitating, out of body experiences and reading peoples' mind and all that crazy stuff. How cool would that be, hah! ;) Well, my yoga practice became pretty much just a physical practice. Thought it was fun to...

Allow yourself to be happy

Mind always seems to think that things needs to be different, in order to be happy. What if it's all about that you "Allow yourself to be happy"?   "I need more money. My partner makes my life difficult. I hate my job. Other people disappoint me continuously. This world is against me...

Sharing from the heart and removing creative blocks

Bloggers, podcasters, writers, composers and all creative artists and peeps. You know the feeling when the deadline is sneaking up on you, and you're still staring at that blank screen or untouched piece of white paper. By finding a more heart centred approach, we can quickly find our way back into the flow.    Right attitude As I started writing this blog post I thought “how do I find something to say that would be new and interesting, so that it would give me the best social media exposure”. This kind of attitude won’t bring me very far, because the starting point is...

Stay peaceful, well and happy—not matter what

Peace is like a never ending project. However, the more we pay attention to our overall wellbeing, the easier it gets to continuously choose peace as a way of living. Actually, peace is who we truly are. The peaceful self, is unconditional love embodied in this world. We can work on our own peace, and simultaneously contribute to make this world a more loving place. As I’m writing this, I just finished teaching a meditation class for a digital service design and development studio in downtown Helsinki. The employees are a group of sweethearts that put a lot of mental...

Syyskukan pieni runo

Kauneuden kukka kiiltää, kutsuu. Voinko olla Sinun? Ottaisitko hellästi kämmenelle? Näetkö vuosien työ? Hengityksesi pitää minut elossa, lempeä katseesi herättää, lämmittää.   Onko nyt kevät? Saanko jälleen kukkia, tai tallaatko maahan, kerrot etten kelpaa. Hauras varsi katkennut, mutta kukkia tuotan kuitenkin, et voi sitä estää. Halusit poimia minut kansioon, litistää ja kuivattaa. Pölyksi olisin muuttunut, kirjahyllyyn unohdettu.   Katsot minua hymyillen ja hellästi. Erikoinen kukka, mietit. Kukkii syksyllä ja loistaa keskiyön valossa.   Voisinko olla Sinun, kuiskaan silmilläni sanomatta sanaakaan. Kuuletko kutsuni tai tallaatko maahan? Voisimmeko yhdessä antaa toisillemme niin paljon, että hengittäisimme jälleen omilla keuhkoillamme? Voisimmeko nousta korkeuksiin, muistaen kauneutemme?   Katse sanoo: "Ota minut syliin. Näen sinut rakkaani. Rakastan juonteita silmiesi ympärillä. Kuulen itkemättömät...
