11 Steps to Get Over your Ex

11 Steps to Get Over your Ex

Whenever a significant relationship comes to an end, we undergo a separation process that can take some time and lots of energy, based on how deep the connection between the partners was and how fast we learn, integrate and release everything that we experienced. The process involves thinking about the relationship, hoping for a “getting back together” moment and missing our ex-partner. We remember and analyze the beautiful and less beautiful moments, “what could have been if” and how we and them could change in order to fulfill our expectations about the relationship. All this and more are part of this process. No matter how much we want to escape, […]

Conscious Parenting And The Value Of Unschooling

Conscious Parenting And The Value Of Unschooling

A few years ago I got to know Marli and her partner Antonio at the very beginning of my two years living in Southern Ecuador. We instantly became friends – at first sight. To my surprise, their young daughter appeared to be an exceptional radiant, aware and impressive being. As my curiosity lit up I started to look deeper into this sweet family and their alternative approach to living. Today I am fortunate for Marli giving me an interview with valuable insights into their motivations and ways of education so that I can share life-enhancing content with you. TELL ME A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR FAMILY, WHERE YOU LIVE, HOW YOU CAME […]

Don’t Let Fear Stop You From Trying

Don’t Let Fear Stop You From Trying

Often enough when we’d like to try something that we aren’t used to, something new, we get hung up in the sensation of fear kicking in with the unknown aspects of the endeavor. And before we even make the first step we already give up. Doubts, uncertainty and not knowing how to halts us in our tracks. What we forget is that the most important is to start. The rest we’ll learn while walking the path, step by step. In that sense, we simply have to try – and adjust along the way. Trying means nothing less than being willing to learn and grow. It means conquering ourselves as much […]

Power of Your Words: Speak With Intention

Power of Your Words: Speak With Intention

Commonly, we are not aware of the power that words inherit and how they are the first manifestation of our thoughts into perceived reality. Most of us talk all day long. And most of us are not aware of the majority of words that we are uttering. We just babble – out of habit, urge, and compulsion. And yet, in paying so little attention to what leaves our mouths we miss out on comprehending how we influence and shape our surrounding according to our inside and vice versa. Our world forms according to our words. How is that so? Words are spoken, thus densified thoughts. They materialize what we are […]

How to Step Into Freedom

How to Step Into Freedom

Feeling free is a natural longing of us human beings. We experience it in all kinds of different shades and aspects in various situations. It belongs to the embedded need for change and evolution as a species as well as an individual. Apart from that, through feeling free we get to know that we are souls inclined to expansion in comparatively limiting physical bodies. We innately desire to fly and dance in endless possibilities. In this shape of experience, we have the free choice of restricting ourselves or stepping out into free flow. Usually, we tend to oscillate between the two while making our way through our lifetime. WHAT EXACTLY […]

STORY: Why Bali Kept My Heart For Good

STORY: Why Bali Kept My Heart For Good

In September 2015 I made a dream come true that had lasted for many years. I finally traveled to Bali the first time, to stay 7 weeks. That was three and a half years ago at this point in time. Premonition told me that I would fall in love with Bali and move there but I didn’t just want to jump at it right away, so I got a return ticket. Obviously, what I had sensed found confirmation once I had arrived. I went directly to Ubud with my laptop and pen tablet in my bag, as I work online and typically don’t do vacations but living, diving deeply into […]

Daily Rituals To Raise Self-Love

Daily Rituals To Raise Self-Love

Hi dear ones 🙂 Today I want to share with you my daily rituals to keep my vibration up high and feeling in love – with myself and all around me. 🙂 That’s also how I handle things that I cannot be at peace with right away and that are challenging for me. Basically, all it takes is constant little reminders and “joy-triggers”, meaning intentionally practicing the desired vibration. Since happiness really is a choice we can make feeling happy a ritual, and with it elicit, nourish and enhance our joy and wellbeing. Furthermore, this is very helpful to get more used to quickly moving out of automatically spinning negative […]

Overcoming Self-Sabotage and Lack

Overcoming Self-Sabotage and Lack

Perhaps one of the main reasons that stop us to experience or achieve anything in our lives is self-sabotage. Many of us are unconsciously rooted in victim-hood patterns, that can makes it challenging to recognize our true potential. We have been made to believe that whatever we want in life, takes a lot of effort or is even impossible to achieve. I had these beliefs myself, I was raised in an environment of lack and limitation and whenever I wanted something it appeared to be bigger than myself. Self-sabotaging patterns interfered and made me gave up on it. Whether is about relationships, passions or jobs. If we were raised in […]

The mundane turns into extraordinary. Everything is a little brighter and more alive. I even feel lighter. Beyond […]

Going through a Divorce? Time to celebrate!

Going through a Divorce? Time to celebrate!

Dear one, Let me invite you to celebrate your new beginning after separating from your partner. A beginning filled with the fresh breeze of a different life and a new adventure. In my own experience, splitting up is never easy because you transform a being that you have formed with another into a new way of living, of existing. Calling the change in relating quitting can feel tough. Because it implies that you are losing something. While in truth, you are gaining a brand new life. Sit back and pause for a moment. Feel yourself in all of this. Rethink, re-evaluate, and then – from a more empowered point of […]

INTERVIEW with Cristina, Co-Founder YOUniverse: “You cannot escape the magic”

INTERVIEW with Cristina, Co-Founder YOUniverse: “You cannot escape the magic”

This interview was initially published by Author Ioana Budeanu on her blog. It was a very usual August night in Ubud, full of frangipani scents and soft jazz music. I was a little bit bored, drinking my beer, listening to the sounds of Bali, and soothing myself in that feeling of “arriving home”.  You see, many years I was searching for my home all over the world, pushing myself to travel more and faster and further. For the first time in my life, in Bali, I felt something. Something that made me wanna stay. And, just before midnight, I heard some people laughing and I was looking curious and intrigued. Who […]
