Make a wish Buddy Body!

Our bodies are continuously speaking to us, but with our busy lives characterized by internal and external noise we have lost the capacity to understand his messages.

Dedicate a day to tune into your physical needs. Not what you think is right, but what your body chooses. Whatever you do ask yourself: What does Buddy Body want right now? What is he trying to tell you? Try to understand and make his wish your command:

Does he want to stretch? Lay down and rest for a while? Breathe deeply into the belly? Does he feel like laughing, crying, moving?Dance slowly, or wildly shake off the tension in different areas of your body. Maybe even scream? Don’t judge. Just increase your body awareness, experiment and see how it makes you feel.

If you want to develop the quality of courage (C in CORAFA) further, dare to meet his needs regardless of where you are. Do it in public, at the office, in front of your friend, your partner.

Journal how you felt afterwards. 😉

Mr Mind

Mr Mind is the voice of your Mind.

His language is thoughts, regardless of whether they are silent or spoken-out-loud. His chatty nature gives him a certain dominance (approx. 40,000 to 70,000 thoughts cross our mind every day!). He inhabits your Land of Mind.

Thinking that he is the only one who gets the big picture, Mr Mind wants to run the show. Indeed, he is very skilled in analysing situations, recognizing patterns and synthesizing new insights. Yet he is also pretty noisy, with all his thoughts overlaying the subtle voices of body and heart.

However, Mr Mind can also be turned into an awesome ally on your journey when you transcend his limiting thought patterns and actively use one of his wonderful qualities that drives us forward and gives us new experiences – curiosity.

He will use his analytical strength to analyse himself. You will see that he likes that. This analytical strength will be clearer and of great use to you on your onwards journey.
Mr Mind will help you understand Buddy Body and Her Highness Heart.

A Miracle at New Year

Do you believe in miracles? I do since beginning of this year.

As usual, we visited my parents-in-law on January 1st. We always bring them beautiful flowers with a piglet or chimneysweep figure (as a sign of luck) and get invited for a cup of coffee or tea – that’s it. A table covered with festive food? Not at my parents-in-law. It took me a long time to get used to it. I was annoyed about it. As a Russian, I simply could not understand why the family of my German husband does not celebrate the start of the New Year.   Read more

The day I learned to focus on ME

I woke up in the morning to feel my inner chaos. Once again, I was overwhelmed by a blend of desperation and powerlessness. I couldn’t see an easy way out of this mess, a state of being I was well acquainted with.

This time, it was triggered by an accident: My car was hit by a waste collection truck. Although the damage was covered by insurance, it was too much to handle for me. I couldn’t help but panic. I had to spend the little money I had to fix my broken car hoping that the insurance company wouldn’t take ages to reimburse the amount. I had to fill in all those forms, and find a solution for commuting to work while the car was in the repair shop. All this struggle just to do a job I hardly could pay my bills with. I was paralyzed and close to a total breakdown. I couldn’t think clearly and I simply couldn’t stop crying.   Read more

Thunder in the bathroom

And there I was – half-naked, in the middle of the bathroom. Out of the blue, I heard my inner voice that struck me like thunder:

When will you finally stop carrying this heavy burden of negativity with you? You are always waiting to be happy. And the others are to blame for it not happening. Stop suffering, damn it!”
