DEEPER. Again.

DEEPER.Again. 

DEEPER is "my word", my intention, for 2017. Now, for the last quarter, I´m aiming to wrap it up in a good way: reflecting over, & finishing what I had in mind for this year and, at the same time, planting tiny seeds, new ideas, for the coming 2018. I wanted a drawing to accompany me these last darkening months, as a reminder of my aim. This came to me while contemplating with a pen in my hand.

Do You have a plan for "Q4"? Do you know how you wish to end 2017? What is it that you want to finish before moving into the next? It´s never a better time than NOW. 

With peace and much love, ´cause that is what we need in the world right now.

Nurture

Nurture yourself with acceptance, and a deep breath,

your work with faith,

your kids with unconditional love,

your loved one with respect,

your friends with admiration,

your house with space and wild flowers,

your garden with tenderness,

and Life through surrendering to its flow.

Wishing you a lovely week!  

With love,

Light-Hearted

Dream Drawing: Light-hearted  

Dream Drawing: Light-hearted  

Hello there,

This week my wish/intention, my "Dream Drawing", is about being Light-Hearted.

Light-hearted, carefree, living "moment-to-moment", and easy were the words I wrote in my journal when creating this drawing last Sunday. When going deeper into it, I asked myself what light-hearted really means to me. This is what it means:

Moving lightly on dancing feet between all things I do in a day. Taking it all more lightly, less serious. Making time for childhood memories, and for making "dreamy", delicious dinners. Not give a f* about the stress that, not often but suddenly, squeeze my body breathless. Smile a little to it all, graciously. Light-heartedly moving on. 

Thank you for being here, for taking your time to visit "my world". I would love to hear what light-hearted means to you, just reply in the comments if you'd like to share.

Take care. 

Peace, 

Maria

Move On

The "Dream Drawing", my wish for this week is titled Move On. This week, I wish to zoom out, get an overview and then, move on. My intention last week was Focus which made me go deep into myself to see my goal, what really matters to me very clear. This week, my intention is to open up. Together they make a beautiful, dynamic couple. Be focused, know where you want to go, what you want, then open up, and move on. 

Have a beautiful week dear family, lovely followers, awesome colleagues & beloved friends. You mean a lot to me. 

Maria. 

Focus.

My Dream Drawing, my wish/dream for this week: FOCUS

IMG_1906.PNG

It's amazing, what opens up and guides you if you just set a simple intention. Clarity, and Connection with my true Goal, my personal Dream, suddenly stood out, without excuses. After a period of scattering my energy on what I like but (maybe) not love I'm focused. I know it so well, I've known it for many years. I wrote it in my journal last night.

Do you know? Do you know Your dream? The only goal, big or small, that really matters to you?

I wish you find it, and I wish you the energy & courage to FOCUS on it.

With love and peace in my heart, 

Maria. 

Go Beyond.

MY DREAM DRAWINGS ARE BACK! These drawings reflect my wishes/dreams for the upcoming week. Every Monday I'll post a new one on Facebook and on Instagram. Short thereafter I post it here at my website accompanied a few additional thoughts. Sounds good?

THIS WEEK: GO BEYOND.

Freedom is found beyond fears, doubts, and imagined enemies. Far beyond made-up "shoulds". 

Can I let go of it all? Can I free myself by boldly raising above, moving beyond?

This week, I wish to free myself to live as I live in my dreams.  To walk where and when I wish to, even if fear is shouting in my ear, and my body is trembling. 

This week only, I go beyond. 

Thank you for taking your time to be here. 

Peace. 'cause that is what we need in this world of ours. Now.

Maria.

Day 100! The End is the Start.

"The End is the Start". 

"The End is the Start". 

What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.
— T. S. Eliot

Hello, 

Yesterday I finished my "100 days diary". It might seem to be the end but for me it marks yet another beginning.

Today is a new day and, being an Aquarius who seldom look back, I love beginnings even though they often come with the feeling of a being in a void. I don´t know much about this beginning but I try to stay open. There´s always new learnings to be made, new ideas to explore. 

I can smell a newborn calmness deep inside but, there´s a knot in my chest that stands in the way for complete tranquility and peace. This morning while meditating I saw so clear that this knot stands in the way for real mastery and who knows how much more? I know this knot... it started to tighten up when I was a very young girl. 

So, I start from here, now. I take a deep breathe and I dive in. I know I will stumble and I know it´ll make me frustrated. I´ll need some time. 

Have a wonderful week, dear family, adored friends, lovely readers & amazing colleagues and thanks for being here! 

Love,

Maria. 

ps. Here´s the Meditation app I use - Insight Timer. It´s free and amazing. No one asked me to share it but I think it´s a treasure so check it out!

APPRECIATE

“Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.” Marcus Aurelius, Meditations. 

That is so beautiful...

Hello!

This is my "Dream Drawing", my wish/ vision for this week: "APPRECIATE". This week is all about appreciation and it came forward when I was sitting in my bed Sunday morning with a cup of good coffee in my hand, reflecting over what I wished for this week (Yes, Sunday mornings are for coffee in bed and reflecting. My life has changed after I started this "routine"!) 

First I thought Celebration since I celebrate my birthday this week. I really wanted to share it with You somehow. From there Love came up, naturally, but it felt to... wide. Then, later in the afternnoon, the right word landed: Appreciate.

It´s important for me to remember to appreciate the little things, people, opportunities and insights along my journey. Now, I appreciate myself, it took some time, I appreciate my life and how I live in my "dream world" as my daughter so wisely named it. I appreciate my life so much that I repeat my gratitude as a mantra in the belief that it will protect it. 

And, I appreciate You. I feel so grateful that You take your time to step into my world of art and music occasionally to listen, read and see. So, my simple message this week is - Thank you

Peace, and love, as always... 

Maria.
