Is this your biggest flaw?

Reading Time: 3 minutes Is this your biggest flaw?
Are you so scared of not being perfect
that you are pushing your allies away?
I know a woman who is extraordinary. She single-handedly accomplishes every year achievements beyond what most others do in a lifetime.
She complains that she does everything with great effort, alone, without support.
But here’s what she does not WANT to know:
Her biggest flaw is that she does not want to have flaws.
When anyone points a mistake to her, she gets outraged.
For her, that is the same as threatening her identity.
So she attacks the person relentlessly. Anything the other person says becomes in her eyes an attack, so she defends herself.
The truth is that she is the one doing the attacking. Every time she believes she is being attacked, she is just being told something that she is not seeing and that —if she would let it in, would solve her problems.
But instead, she sees that critique or observation as an attack on her identity.
Because she believes that in order to be truly worthy of love, success, basically anything, really… she must be perfect. As […]

What are you saying?

Reading Time: < 1 minute Monday Meditation
What are you Saying?
Do you complaint about what you don’t have…
when you are doing nothing to get it?
Do you go on about how your life is such a disappointment …
when you are not willing to risk believing
it could be different?
Do you blame others, fate or childhood
for the limitations you are not willing to change?
Do you pray and affirm and when it does not happen,
you conclude that you were right all along
when you secretly knew that it would not be any better?
Because life does not bring you want you want.
Life brings you what you are.
Life does not bring you what you speak from the tongue out.
Life brings you what you say inside yourself,
with the belief you embrace,
the thoughts you feed with your emotions,
the expectations you set.
So what are you REALLY saying?
Hear your words out there.
Then turn within to your feelings and hear what you are saying.
Hear what you say out loud.
Then look at what you say with your actions and choices.
Hear what you tell others.
Then listen to what you tell yourself.
So, what are you really saying?

Which is you: leader, scout, follower, breadcrumb eater or...

Reading Time: 4 minutes Which is you: Leader, Scout, Follower, Breadcrumb Eater or…
I’m looking through my living room window into the garden, wondering if the sick trees will recover when I see my neighbor spreading crumbs in the windowsill. She is a pigeon-lover and does this every day. We are both watching to see how long it takes for the pigeons to find the crumbs. She does this every day, hiding in the shadows and waiting to enjoy the satisfaction of the pigeons.
Today I’m watching because I’m waiting to be filled with stories, inspiration, articles, poems for my blogs. I often look to the trees for that inspiration. But today I’m getting it from this loving, magical relationship between humans and animals.
“How long will it take?” I wonder.
Not five minutes have passed when I see wings fluttering. But the interesting thing is that the pigeons do not land on the windowsill where the breadcrumbs wait for them, so easily attainable.
They are no fools, these pigeons. Two pigeons, one white and one with several shades of grey, land two stories above.
White Pigeon makes its way […]

Tool of the Month for you: Change your Story, Change your Life

Reading Time: 3 minutes Tool of the Month for you:

Tool to: Change your Story, Change your Life

Here’s the Tool of the Month I’ve create for you.

Do you feel that there’s some invisible limit, like an invisible wall or a blind spot that’s blocking your progress or manifestation?
Do you feel that you are caught in a loop, that you are able to get so much done, grow so far or get that close to your Dream or purpose… and then something pulls you back into the loop and you are spinning again in an old familiar place?

The reason for this is that you are trapped in a life story that was either written for you early on or you’ve written it probably subconsciously, an you are not playing out that story in your life.
You are a trapped in a role within that story. To change your life past a certain set point, you need to change your story.
And that’s the latest tool I’ve developed for you. It’s called:

This alchemical process combines storytelling, tapping and an alchemical process that changes your Energy Broadcast […]

Wake up Sleeping Beauty!

Reading Time: 7 minutes Too many people are asleep in a trance and the worst part is that they don’t know it. There are four instances when our fears or habits send us in a trance:

Fear to see or know the truth
Avoidance of pain
Resistance to change and need to be in control
Resistance to go deeper, to go beneath ordinary reality into the soul, emotions and spiritual realms of being

Let’s take a look at each one, and let’s switch genders in the examples, because Sleeping Beauty Syndrome is not just a woman’s issue. It can also put a man in a trance.
Fear to see or know the truth
She wanted a boyfriend. She had been without a boyfriend for too long. So she made up her mind to have a boyfriend. So far, so good. Intention and focus are good tools to manifest. Right? Wrong!
She needed to qualify that boyfriend she desired so that it would be someone in harmony with the quality of her Essence and her life. And if those qualities did not show up, she then needed to do the work in herself […]

Swimming against the current

Reading Time: 2 minutes Quotes by Maria Mar

When your Emotional Undertow drags you back, you never get to the shore of your Dream.

Think about it…
When you feel that you are swimming against the current, that your goal or dream is moving farther away… what do you do?
If you are like most people, you swim harder and faster. You struggle and work harder because that’s what you’ve learned to do.
In fact, surrendering is the solution.
Surrendering ~not in defeat, not to give up or conform~ but to listen, to allow whatever resistance force is working invisibly in the depth to come up and become visible and tangible.
What you find out often is that the force is your Emotional Undertow.
This is the quagmire of old, toxic emotions that have been repressed and driven into your subconscious, becoming an emotional swamp.
These muddy waters are activated any time a familiar trigger is pressed. Then all the feelings you’ve accumulated of similar situations and past experiences with their old, repressed emotional responses is agitated within you and begins to pull you down and under, away from your goal.
The overwhelming emotional […]
