Inspirational quote for this week

inspiration

Hello everyone, this week’s inspirational quote is:

We are attracted to super heroes because deep down we know we have their power. – Ralph Smart

Did you know that you also have the qualities of a person who you admire? You might not live it fully yet, but you do have the same attributes deep inside you. With a little exercise, which I am going to describe below, you will be able to recognise it, and you will be astonished about what you discover.

A great exercise is to list every person who you truly admire. Then next to it list the qualities you like about that someone. Now, do you recognise that you have similar traits? This type of practice is helping you to discover who you are.

How to start creating your product or service

In my previous posts, you discovered your real feelings and channelled them into a creative product or service. Well done. This could be your first step in supporting you with a full-time artistic career but how do you do this?

Great question.

On the one hand, you can create a product or service to help to heal or balancing the emotions, such as essential oils, bath salts, a book about feelings and emotions, crystal jewellery, a wellness retreat in Bali, you name it.

On the other hand, you can create a product to reflect and acknowledge the emotions; such as a song, a painting or photograph that captures the mood, a fiction book or movie using a character which embodies the feelings.

These are just a few examples. There are no limits to your creativity and no correct version of your art. See it as work in progress. It does not need to be perfect. Get it started and go with the flow. Perfection leads to frustration. Nothing in life is perfect. If you aim for perfection, you will chase your own tail all life long. Having a desire for a creation to accurately and authentically express your feelings is a more realistic intention that being perfect in creating a product or service.

How to overcome perfectionism?

The best way to deal with perfectionism is to start your project right in the middle. Starting a new big project seems daunting and can quickly overwhelm us. Overwhelm then leads to procrastination, which is a form of self-sabotage. The problem is once you start procrastinating you wait for the perfect moment where everything feels right, and you prepared. But guess what, this moment will never happen. A perfectionist will never be ready. Waiting around means that someone else might come up with your idea. Don’t be annoyed if that happens. The universe got the idea, and if you wait around for the perfect moment, someone else gets and will take this chance.

My advice is to devote time to your creative project and start in the middle. Don’t worry how to begin, this will come in later and probably will be much more apparent. Start with whatever you are passionate about. Trust the flow.

I think I need help, what do I do?

Do you want to discover what is stopping you from turning your passion into a career and learn how to overcome these, so you can transform your life? Then I invite you to book a complimentary breakthrough session with me here.

Law of attraction reading for the week of 6 November 2017

Welcome to my weekly law of attraction reading. I am using the deck from Esther and Jerry Hicks :

For the week of the 6 November 2017 I pulled the following card:

“To the degree I am happy, I am successful.”

“Whether it’s a trophy, money, relationships, or things, the achievement of anything that you desire must be considered success. But if you will let your standard of success be your achievement of joy, everything else will then fall easily into place. For in the finding a joy, you are finding vibrational alighment with the resources of the universe.”

Inspirational quote for the week – Love or lust?

Inspirational quote of the week – You are the creator of your own life

inspirational quotes

Hello everyone. This week’s inspirational quote is:

Nobody can do anything to us. We have to do it ourselves. – Ralph Smart.

This inspirational quote is a great reminder that we are the creator of your own life. We chose what we have in our life and if we let other people run over us or control us. We can make a choice to say yes to ourselves, to stand up for ourselves and to follow our dreams.

It sounds easy, right? I get it, it’s not as easy as is sounds. Some of us might feel being a victim and this is just the life for you. Or we feel not confident and secure enough to stand up for ourselves. We might feel, we need to look after our loved ones or other people in your life first and you are just not a priority? We keep living a life which is not meant to be for us, but we don’t know what to do?

If that sounds familiar to you, then I tell you, these limiting beliefs stem from your subconscious programming of not feeling good enough, not being worthy, doubting yourself or you are not important.

If we keep believing this, we are stuck and keep attracting the same situations over and over again. There are powerful ways of transforming these limiting beliefs into empowering beliefs which help you manifesting exactly the opposite, the great things in life. Are you curious about what your disempowering beliefs are and how to turn these into empowering beliefs, so you can attract anything you want?

I have some great news for you: I offer a complimentary Breakthrough session for you. A Breakthrough Session is an impossible-to-fail, relaxed conversation over the phone. It involves a series of questions designed to uncover the challenges you’re experiencing and what might be stopping you or slowing you down from living the dream of your life. It is a completely non-judgemental process by which you leave inspired. By the end of the 30 minutes, we will both know whether entering into a coaching relationship is the next best step for you and if we are a fit for one another.

Here’s what you will discover in your session

  • uncover what’s been stopping you, slowing you down or keeping you from finding your true purpose in life
  • uncover what’s been holding you back or slowing you down from living your life of your dreams right now
  • develop a powerful vision for what living a fulfilled life means for you and for your life
  • discover which habits and beliefs are holding you back from having the life you dream of and living on purpose…and what to do about it
  • get crystal clear on a step – by step plan to find your true soul’s purpose, becoming successful and living a fulfilled life in 90 days or less.

This is a 30 min complimentary session.

I currently offer one highly-effective 90-day Intensive Programs as described below. It involves weekly one-on-one coaching by phone, in which I will share some more details of my system during our Breakthrough Session. As featured on my home page, my clients have had incredible results with this.

which you can book here. I am excited to talk to you. You definitely will walk away with a huge aha moment.

Inspirational quote of the week – Change your vibrational frequency

inspirational quote

Hello everyone. This week’s inspirational quote is:

Once you change your own vibrational frequency, everything aligns to the same frequency. – Ralph Smart

That’s exactly why some people say the law of attraction is not working. Just wanting and desiring something, doesn’t mean you will get it. If your wants are not in line with your intrinsic values or you simply subconsciously don’t believe in it, it is not going to happen. Your energy frequency is on a different level.

To attract what you want, know your values first, as these are the drivers in your life. Then change your feeling about what you want; feel as you already have it. This will change your energy frequency to the level of what you want to attract.

I know, it is not as simple as it sounds. Most of us carry a deeply seated belief system in us which is based on your way of growing up, your parent’s beliefs or your own experiences. This is our inner subconscious programming. Sometimes we are not even aware of it.

I have some great news for you, you can change your programming for the better. If you want to find out, what is stopping you from living the dream of your life, and want to know how to fix things and transform your life? Then you are right here, I offer a complimentary breakthrough session which you can book here. I am excited to talk to you. You definitely will walk away with a huge aha moment.

Inspirational quote of the week – Live your dream

inspirational quote

Hello everyone for this week’s inspirational quote:

The Life I am living now is the life I dreamed about years ago. – Ralph Smart

This quote is so true for me. I am originally from Germany and I felt the urge to move to Australia in 2007. I felt so blessed when I was able to stay with such an amazing homestay family in Waverley, Sydney. Thank you so much for being such a great family and friends. I felt very welcome and integrated from the very first day when I arrived. Blessings to you and your family.

Now I live in Cronulla, in the South of Sydney, just a 5 minutes walk away from the beach. For me, my dreams came true! Yours can become true too. Believe in it, and it will happen if it is meant for you.

Life is a mirror

Life is a mirror. Everything in your mind will be reflected back at you. So watch out what is going on in your mind and what you are thinking.

Once you understand this concept, this is a life changer. If you are being negative, you send out negative energy vibrations and guess what? You will receive negative results. Once you learn how to shift your thinking and being positive, your energy level will increase and you will harvest your fruits. However, it is not as easy as it sounds like.

Unfortunately just having a desire does not necessarily give you what you want. That’s why lots of people who tried the law of attraction are failing and blaming this not to be true. The problem is your energy in your body. Everything is made of energy. I believe everybody has some sort of issues and baggage to deal with and if you believe in past lives, some of the problems might even stam from there. Subconsciously we might hang on to a certain belief system which can be triggered by some negative experiences from this or past lives if you believe so. You can think as positively as you want, you won’t get it because subconsciously you are blocking yourself. The best way to deal with this is to acknowledge your problems and to let go. For some people yoga or meditation is the way to get aware of all the little issues and false belief systems we have. Once you realise, let it go and write down your true new believe. You can feel a shift in your energy and will notice how suddenly the law of attraction is working.

“Life is a mirror: if you frown at it, it frowns back; if you smile, it returns the greeting.”
― William Makepeace Thackeray –

I love the photos below which reflect the beauty of the world we live in and everybody can see. The only thing we need to do is to open our mind and heart. The second photo reflects the mirror of our life.

What a dramatic sky. I was at home being sick when the light in my living room turned into a golden pink, I looked out of the window and could not believe what I saw. I quickly grabbed my camera and took a photo of the trees in Gunnamatta Bay, Cronulla, from my balcony. The colours blew me away.

First I was disappointed not being able to go down to the bay to take photos but I was saying to myself to be creative instead. In the end I loved the result, different and not a typical sunset photo.

I was playing around with that photo in the Macphun softwares. The result of my creativity is the following photo:

Photos that make you want to visit Manuel Antonio National Park in Costa Rica

If you appreciate pure nature, are interested in observing wildlife and love relaxing on beautiful beaches watching an incredible sunset, then Costa Rica should be on your travel bucket list.

Manuel Antonio National Park faces the Pacific Ocean in central Costa Rica. This part of Costa Rica encompasses rugged rainforests, white sandy beaches and coral reefs. Costa Rica is known for its vast diversity of tropical flowers and animals. The National Park is roughly 680 hectares huge and has a variety of different hiking trails, which lead you from the coast up into the mountains.

If you are keen on hiking through the rain forest, you want to make sure you can see all the wildlife and not missing out on anything. I, therefore, recommend booking a guided tour through the rain forest. The guides use a large telescope and know the forest and their inhabitants inside out. They spot tiny little animals you would have never guessed finding on your own.

Enjoy the journey through the rainforest in Manuel Antonio National Park:

You have the beach for yourself midin the National park of Manual Antonio. On the way to the beach you can observe the Costa Rican wildlife.

Costa Rica has some fascinating wildlife to see in the rainforests:

The Montezuma is a New World tropical icterid bird. It is a resident breeder in the Caribbean coastal lowlands from southeastern Mexico to central Panama.

You can see the white-faced capuchin monkeys when strolling through the rain forest. Unfortunately, this species is endangered. These two guys in that photo were fighting and chasing each other.

The three-toed sloths are one of the Costa Rican locals. They are very slow in moving from one spot to another. Their faces seem to smile all day long. When you walk through the rain forest, take your time and see if you can spot them in the trees.

 

lizard
The Black Spiny-tailed Iguana is a lizard in Central America and Mexico. It is the largest species in the genus Ctenosaura and has been recorded as the fastest-running species of lizard.They have distinctive black, keeled scales on their long tails, which gives them their common name. The males are capable of growing up to 1.3 meters in length, and the females are slightly shorter, at 0.8–1 meter.

Besides the tropical animals you will notice the most beautiful colourful flowers in the rainforest:

It was raining in the rainforest near Cachi in Costa Rica. The flowers were covered with rain drops which made it so much more interesting to photograph.

Lots of you will notice this beautiful orchid, however, to see it growing in the wild rainforest is fascinating.

Costa Rica has also plenty of options to go on boat trips for snorkelling in the coral reef. On the way you might be lucky to see dolphins and whales:

I was on a snorkelling trip in Costa Rica and was lucky to being able to see a dolphin jumping out and back into the ocean.

Now you have seen so much from this wonderful region of Costa Rica, the beautiful colourful flowers and cute, exotic wildlife. It is time to relax on the beach in Manuel Antonio National Park enjoying the sunset.
