Inspiration

2 May 2017 May has arrived and it’s finally bringing spring vibes to Berlin. It’s a month that is filled with life force. Plants are blossoming, blooming and growing everywhere. Birds are making their nests. How do we get a share of this reinventing energy? How can we bloom, reinvent ourselves and refresh our body, mind and soul? INSPIRATION What is your …

How much self-actualization can you bear?

25th April 2017 Do you remember what you wanted to become as a child? My dad asked me when I was 5 years old. We were still living in East Berlin – behind the wall. My answer was clear: “I want to go to the West.” Fortunately the wall came down two years later, but my wish for self-actualization is deeply engrained. …

How Strong Is Your Heart?

18 April 2017 Did you know that your heart is like a broadcasting station: the frequency your heart sends, impacts how you experience each moment. We are told that making our dreams come true depends on a perfect strategic plan, but unless your heart is open and strong, your strategy or ambition don’t get you anywhere. Can you feel whether your heart is strong …

Noticing Your Superpower

11 April 2017 Yes, noticing is a superpower! The better you are at noticing, the better you handle stress and challenges. And the more relaxed you are in stressful situations, the more successful and fulfilled you will be in your life. It’s one thing to notice the change that is happening. It’s an entirely other thing to notice the effects on yourself …

Discovering Blind Spots

4 April 2017 Do you have any blind spots? Blind spots are sabotaging behaviors and thought patterns you employ without even noticing. If you think of areas where you feel help & powerless – you might be faced with a blind spot. In my experience blind spots are not very complex, but because of our unique perspective (or shall I call it blindness) it can take …

Inside & Outside

29 Mar 2017 Are you content with what you experience in your outside world AND what you are feeling inside? Sometimes we choose to focus primarily on our inside world or primarily on our outside achievements, but in order to take inspired actions we need to live in both worlds – inside and outside. Denying our feelings will not work for long – sooner or …

Ultra Self Accountability

21 Mar 2017 Today is my grandmothers birthday and I will spend the afternoon with her and my family. My grandma has the tendency to do everything by herself – despite her age. On the other hand she blames others for her misery. Even though I dislike her tendency it feels familiar.  Doing everything by myself, can feel empowering. But the missing …

So Many Feelings

14 Mar 2017 “What if something bad happens? What if I am not good enough?” These and other questions can really kill your drive. Suddenly they sneak around the corner and get you from behind. You feel a cold shiver running down your back and the ground starts shaking… What was colorful and bright before, becomes grey and scary at …

You won the lottery

7 Mar 2017 I receive up to 10 ‘You won the lottery’ emails a day. The irony is that their message is right: I won the lottery and so have you. The only challenge is that we cannot embrace this fact, because we fear the consequences and the responsibility that come with it. The tricky thing is that nobody ever told us, …

Mamma, where are you?

28 Feb 2017 Last week my mother shared her reflections about my latest TruthCircle Podcast and it turns out she wouldn’t give me the Oscar for it. That hurt me – even though it doesn’t matter what my mother says, right? But no matter how close or distant your mother is – she is always a point for orientation, we either move towards …
