Passion and what your heart desires

Today I would like to share my thoughts about a movie that made me realise something important. It remembered me of something that I already experienced, and it is so re-assuring to see someone-else experiencing the same thing and being remembered of it. It is something that will keep happening throughout life.

To summarize it shortly:

It is about that fire in your soul. The passion! And the feelings that come with it once you follow it.

Let me get more into it.

The movie that inspired me to write this blog post, is called “Maidentrip”. It is about a 14-year old girl who decides to sail the world all by herself (and besides it, setting a new world record). She was born in New Zealand, however was growing up in the Netherlands and speaks Dutch. There has been a court case against her parents (and her) in regards of that idea because the court thought it would be too dangerous.

In the end, the girl and her family won and she was good to go. There is no laws who could stop her from doing so. And even if there was, I’m pretty sure she would have found a way around it.

For 2 years, this girl sails around the world. All on her own. You can see her footage in the movie, there was no follower-boats or people with her. In-between she stops in different countries to experience their culture and landscapes, hence she took her time and did the sailing in 2 years and non-stop (which would have been quicker).

What fascinated me the most:

  • The young age of this girl
  • Her willpower and being so content about her dream
  • Being so incredibly brave to sail the world on her own
  • Not being afraid to be on her own on the boat for long periods of times
  • Already knowing how beneficial it is to explore the world and different cultures
  • Following her dream and living her passion. Sailing!

 

 

I was truly impressed by that girl….just sailing around the world. On her own!

Afterwards I was asking myself: What impressed me the most and most importantly: Why did it impress me so much?

First of All: That girl and I share a common interest and passion: We both love the ocean. We love the marina life. We love boats and sailing/traveling on them. My heart sings by just thinking about it.

I deeply resonated with her and this movie because I could vividly feel the passion. I experience it myself every time I am “out on the water”.

Then there is also that fascination and gratefulness for HER because she is able to experience all that since she was basically born. She grew up with it and I think it’s the coolest thing ever to grow into your passion and be blessed with parents who already live it and get you naturally into it to. This thing we have not in common. In fact, I had to discover my passions for myself first. Work for them to make them possible and eventually experience them. She had to work for it too of course.

I do consider myself very lucky still, I’m in my 20’s and already did so many things in my life. Experienced so many different situations, cultures, countries and: PASSIONS.

I know now very well what makes my heart sing. Sometimes in-between I even discover something new that I really enjoy and “gets the fire burning. I am luckily to live them and get to live them. Not on a daily basis but this will happen eventually.

I was so grateful and happy for this young girl who is already able to do all that on a daily basis. At that young age. Isn’t that beautiful!? How amazing are her parents to provide her that possibility and support her along the way? It is just absolutely fantastic.

So this movie reminded me of exactly that. Made me reflect my own life again and realise how lucky I am too (different path) and how important it is to follow your calling or passion and do whatever your heart and soul desires. It is not always that easy but we can most certainly work towards it. With the right attitude and outlook on life you will 100% achieve just that.

I will look more into this topic and all around it. How to get there. How to discover your passion. And what to make of it.

For now,

Have a fantastic day!!

P.S: I manifested my new car!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

Part 2: How to manifest a car

Today is part 2 of this little blog series.

Make sure to check out part 1 as well!

Now today I gonna write about the energy. This is a major part in this process and will help to accelerate (or slow down) the attraction process.

In order to be as aligned with the universe as possible, it is important that you FEEL good. Positive thoughts alone are sometimes not enough, you also gotta feel it!

I would nearly go as far and say: as long as you don’t feel somewhat happy/good, don’t write down the list of details at all (part 1). The better you feel, the better you will attract.

If you are thinking about your desire or you are not sure yet what exactly it is, follow your inner guide. If a certain topic comes into your mind (for example: I will attract more money)  : Does this feel good? Or do you feel a knot in your chest when thinking of money?

If you feel good and get excited: that’s the right path! Figure out by asking yourself, in which direction it will go. Does it feel awesome to say “I will attract 10.000€” or even better when you say 100.000€? Or is it feeling not so realistic to you and you feel more comfortable by saying “I attract 2.000€”?

Its important to follow your guts here and stick with what feels right. Of course everybody would love 100.000€ but if it doesn’t feel right you wont be able to attract it. Believe me, I have been there haha.

By asking yourself these questions and listening to your feelings and observing your body’s reaction, you will be able to find the alignment that is right for you at the moment. Not to mention how fast things will come into your life too!!

Besides that, it is of course important, that you feel good in general. The happier and positive you feel, the easier you will keep up the faith and trust the universe. Which means it will come into your life easier and attracts faster!!

This was a hard and looooooong lesson for me to learn to be honest. I always wanted, what my EGO wanted. And as fast as possible. I never listened to my inner self to see what I actually really wanted or needed. Hence the attraction process took sometimes forever or just never happened. Which is very frustrating of course.
I hope it wont take you as long as me (years!!) to figure this out, so here is my post for you 🙂

 

In case you are not feeling well or happy, just make sure to do things that cheer you up. Meet up with friends, watch a funny movie, do one of your hobbies.

And once again, the above applies: if you THINK this or that makes you happy but it doesn’t feel like it. IT WONT. No matter how funny an idea sounds to you but if your inner feeling or a random thought pops into your head (and it feels good): FOLLOW IT AND DO IT.

 

I would love to hear what makes you happy!

Let me know in the comments please 🙂

Now…with the perfect energy lined up: HELLO NEW CAR!!!!! 😀

 

 

 

 

Part 1: How to manifest a car

Hi everybody,

Today is Part 1 of this mini-series. Inspired by my friend and by my own little signs & success, I would like to help you attracting your desire as well.

The first step is properly one of the most important ones: Decide and Declare your Desire!

Since I am currently in the process of getting a new car, I will use my new car as an example.

I started with these steps last week.

Number 1:

Take about 5-10 Minutes and think about your next desired object or outcome.

I wrote down a detailed list about what car I want to attract. Here is an example of my list:

I am calling in a:

  • Suzuki (from year 05 onwards)
  • Dark colour (black, blue or dark grey)
  • Tinted windows
  • Less than 150.000 KM on it
  • Mechanically in perfect condition

 

Something along the lines. As you can see, I didn’t decide on the colour yet. The reason: I like all three of the colours and wouldn’t mind if it’s one of them. If you only like one specific colour, then just write that colour down and focus on that one. The more details the better!

Once you have written down all your details, close your eyes and visualise the car (or whatever you choose). Visualise how it will feel once you have it. Enjoy this feeling and make sure it makes you really excited. Make sure that it is something that you really really want. A burning desire!

Once you have focused on what exactly you are asking from the universe, you can then just put away the list or try get the perfect picture and put it up on a vision board. In my case I don’t have a picture because I want my car to look different and with what I have in mind, there is no picture around. So I will keep visualising it but I have my own reminders every day.

When you are finished with this exercise, declare it!

Tell your friends and family about it! Tell people, no matter who, or do it like me (additionally) and declare it in your blog. Or Social media! Make sure it feels real and right. Maybe it feels way too weird to speak it out loud or you feel uncomfortable with it. If that is the case I would suggest to sit down again and make sure this is really what you want. Or maybe it just needs to be in a different version like different colour, different brand, and slightly different outcome. The better you feel when talking about it, the more it will make sense and you align your energy with the universe. If it doesn’t feel right (yet) it might not be the time (yet).

 

So here it goes!

I DECLARE MY WISH TO THE UNIVERSE: A SUZUKI SWIFT

That’s it! It’s that easy!

Since I don’t have a time-window for when I want the car, I just leave that open.

The Universe will deliver the perfect lil car for me whenever the timing is perfect!

Now: Of course that’s not it. And it wont just happen like that. But this is a very good start!

In my next part I will write about how you need to feel it. How to get the energy right. To let the universe deliver your wish.

Stay tuned!!!

 

 

How to attract a new car (New Blog series)

Hey everybody!

I decided to share my on-going experience with you and since I am in the process at the moment, I thought I will share it straight away.

There is already thousands of books and blog-posts about how to use The Law of Attraction. I think that is awesome!!!
Would you believe that after 7 years consciously using it, I still have to tweak around my process of how I attract things best? Sounds crazy but its not that crazy.

We change the whole time and we experience different things in life that will shape us and lead us to new thoughts, feelings, opinions and so on. Something that might have worked for you years ago, doesn’t work anymore. A natural process.

I’m in the middle of such a phase, my life has changed big time since last year since i focused a lot on LIVING LIVE. Just as my blog-title says. And with circumstances that changed, I changed a lot as a person.

I discovered that my old ways of how I attract things into my life, don’t necessarily work as well anymore. Or not as good. Some more things need to be filled in and I am currently right in the middle of it.

I thought I will go and share my experiences.

Im deeply inspired and motivated my friend Annika who is also known as “The Light Maiden”. Her homepage is:

The Light Maiden

Inspired by her 5 day- manifestion course (FOR FREE!!!), I am going to let you know how everything goes and what my friend Annika also suggests to do and how I implement into my own life.

Since I really really really need a new car (well “new” aka used car but newer than my current one), I will focus entirely on how I attract my new car.

I hope you will enjoy this 🙂

Until tomorrow!

The law of attraction- and how it works best

Today I would like to write about a topic that plays a huge part in my life.

If you know “The Secret” and its books, you are probably familiar with all the usual attraction- techniques.

The most common ones are the vision board (putting pictures/words etc. up on a board/wall/somewhere visible) and writing down your goals and thoughts.

To not make this blog post too long, I will jump straight away to the techniques and not into how the Law of Attraction (LOA) works altogether. I might write about it in another post though. Let’s see.

Anyway.

I read most of The Secret books and also many other books or websites that are focused on how to attract things/situations/people (everything really) into your life.

After about 7 years consciously practicing it (and also often not being aware of what I just attracted), I pretty much figured out the best way FOR MYSELF.

Many people actually love to put up affirmations, pictures or just vision boards in general, to remind them daily of their goals.

Because so many people talked about it and followed this approach, I thought this would work out for me too. I’m quiet the “visual”  type when it comes to memorizing stuff, studying and so on so I thought this would be naturally the best way for me too.

Boy was I wrong.

Now, I’m not saying that it wont work for me at all but I would like to make you aware of the following:

There is so many approaches out there, but in the end you need to find out the best approach for yourself…and use it…try it…improve it…and just see how it will go for you.

I noticed that the following works best for me and hopefully it gives you some ideas too or simply helps you to attract whatever you want in life!

#1: Writing down what you would like to attract. Being specific definitely helps. I normally start with small stuff that I know will lead naturally into something bigger. Or start with small goals and then just re-write it to attract the next step. Baby steps is definitely the key-word here!

#2: Feeling good whilst writing it down. Make sure you are in a good mood/high vibe when you sit down to think about your goal. Do not sit down writing stuff out of desperation/frustration or because you feel shitty but want to feel better.

To get out of the negative vibe…well I might write about that in another post as well to keep this one short and sweet. But its really really important to only write down your goals once you are in a happy place. And feel good. If you want to write it down but you are simply not in the mood for it, listen to your body/feelings and do it another time.

#3: Let go. Yes I know, this is definitely the hardest part. I used to focus so much on HOW to let go that I completely missed the fact that I’m perfectly fine with letting stuff go. Naturally.

How? After I wrote stuff down, I just carry on doing something else. As mentioned above, in a good and happy mood. Maybe I have to go somewhere else anyway. Or maybe I go outside and walk my dog.

So what helps best is to distract yourself from the goals immediately.

We then forget about the written stuff for a while, and that leads me to my next point!

Personally for me this is nearly the most important one:

#4: DO NOT MAKE YOUR LIST VISIBLE. Note: this is my personal experience, for you it might be the exact opposite. For me it helps to not read or look at my written down goals at all. I just leave the sheet of paper or journal somewhere else and avoid looking at it or reading it. Best: put it out of your sight completely so you wont even think about the written down stuff. WHY? It helps me to not focus on what I wrote down. To let go. Now, in the back of my head I obviously still have the goals saved and once in a while I think about them. Or when I come across opportunities that remind me of them.

But if I hang up my goals/vision board and keep seeing them on a daily basis? It actually frustrates me. I am not patient (still working on that), so when I keep seeing my goals but I haven’t reached them yet (even though I know some of them just take their time), I get frustrated. And that’s the last thing you would want!!! Because that most certainly will not help you attract any of your goals. I must admit that this last step took me quiet a while to figure out. But better late than never right?

So again:

  • Write it down (be specific if you can)- start with small stuff first (baby steps)
  • Be in a good mood/high vibe/happy place whilst writing it down
  • Let go
  • Hide the list and not look at it anymore (or if you are the opposite: put it up on a wall/vision board to remind yourself of your goals)

 

I wonder if there is people out there, who do it that way as well. I never heard anyone talking about it anyway hence it took me a good few years to actually realize how it works the very best for me.

I just had to share this, I hope it helped and if not:

Let me know how you attract your goals & dreams and what approach you take.

Be good!
