    Light of your consciousness: Integrating the lost parts of ourselves

    Every person living on this planet has at some point in time, usually in their childhood, experienced a stressful or traumatic event that caused them to suppress a part of themselves, which they thought was not appropriate to express. When you didn´t know how to deal with the stressful event itself and you were at the same time afraid of the emotions that arose within you in that particular situation, you suppressed the emotion together with the unwanted part of your Self. What once were uncomfortable feelings became subconscious parts of you that weren´t given the space to exist. However, what you resist persists, therefore, what is once suppressed has…

    Tune into your inner wisdom

    We go through life learning, looking for answers and trying to find the ultimate source of wisdom or a magic spell that would give us the key to every question that we are ever going to have. The education system teaches us to look for answers outside of ourselves in books, teachers, and other authorities. Almost no one teaches us the importance of unlearning what no longer serves us. One of the most important things that we will ever do is letting go of the idea of who we think we are supposed to be, and embracing who we were all along beneath the artificial layers of obsolete knowledge that…

    You don´t need to be positive to be free

    Did you ever think about the way we think? It may sound strange, but let me explain. When you sit quietly or when you try to meditate and observe your thoughts, you will most likely find out that thoughts simply arise without you doing much. They come and go and they trigger certain emotions in your body depending on whether they are in synch with who you truly are or not. Therefore, you can immediately stop beating yourself up for not always thinking positively. The truth is that thoughts arise in our consciousness based on what we heard when we were growing up and based on what we have believed…

    Reconnecting to your true nature: Practicing mindfulness

    Every single one of us desires a life filled with joy and happiness and I think that this desire inherent to each of us connects us on a deeper level as human beings. However, where we differ are the ways through which we are looking for happiness and joy. I believe that in order to find true joy and meaning we, eventually, have to turn inward first and foremost and find the connection to our true Self – to our heart – because without this connection we will be always looking for the next thing to make us happy without realizing that what we carry within us has the power…

    Don´t try to be everything to everyone, just be all you need to be

    For years I equated being kind with respecting everyone else´s feelings and not making them feel uncomfortable. I got trapped in a mental loop, where I sorted through my thoughts, words and actions in order not to hurt anyone, but on the other side, I was blind to the fact that sometimes it meant holding back my whole truth, not expressing myself in a way I wanted to or dumbing myself down, so others won´t feel uncomfortable in my presence. Until it got to the point where I unconsciously started to suppress my inner voice, because I was afraid that my words or actions might offend someone. If you are…
