It was 2012. I had just broken off my two-year relationship and experienced yet another spiritual awakening. I needed a change and it had to be a big one. I had spent 7 years in my home town and it felt like it was enough.

It came down to a point where I had to ask myself — do I see myself doing the same thing until the rest of my life or do I believe there is something more?

Mind you, I was doing what I loved, I had friends and family, a beautiful apartment in the city center and I was happy. The thing is, settling isn’t really my thing. I am a free spirit and want to live my life to the fullest. I was ready to take a leap of faith and dive into the unknown.

At that point I still…

Working out alone doesn’t do the trick!

A few years ago I had a problem with my knee and I couldn’t walk cause it hurt so much. This was my wake-up call to get my body in shape.

I started pacing myself in my workouts and slowly building my strength and flexibility. After just a few months I had been working out 4–5 times a week, doing Yoga, Spin class, Aikido, Suspension TRX Training, Ballet and EMS Training (electric muscle stimulation). I get bored easily and need diversity when it comes to training. This is why I chose different kinds of activities. …

This article was inspired by my recent birthday, and I thought I’d share some words of wisdom. There are 41 lessons altogether and this is part 3. In case you missed parts 1 and 2 — click below!

Ever since I first spiritually awakened at the age of 17 I realized life was a game and it has its rules. I’ve figured a lot of these rules out and have been playing this game of life for years. Once you see it for what it is, life truly gets easier and lighter. …

Let’s talk about the influence of the media and how it affects us.

Before I dive in and share my experience I will mention that I am a Highly Sensitive Person. What that means is I have to be very mindful of what I surround myself with, as I feel pretty much everything. I get drained in social interactions, loud sounds and disturbing images affect me, and I need to maintain my energy hygiene to stay balanced.

If you’re a Highly Sensitive Person or an Empath check out the article below!

Regardless, I think a lot of people have been affected by the occurrences in the past few years. The media keeps bombing…

As a part of my life-hack series, I am sharing some insights that have helped me live my best life. I’ve been discovering these insights ever since my first spiritual awakening when I was 17 years old.

I am hoping to inspire you to follow your heart’s desire…

“You become what you believe, not what you think or what you want” — Oprah Winfrey

I’ve been working on myself for years now and trying to figure out the origin of my limiting beliefs. Through this process, I learned that most of our beliefs come from our family, teachers, and society. I started observing what people in my family said and noticed a lot of limiting beliefs they kept affirming.

Recently I noticed one of my aunts held a lot of judgment towards me and I wanted to know why. I inspire people for a living and help them…

Some things are meant to be private

I think it is safe to say that what is happening with social media these days has gone out of hand — people posting about their perfect lives, canceling each other when we disagree, or sharing their most vulnerable moments.

Ever since I got into coaching, I kept hearing — be authentic, share your story, be real. We have been oversaturated with seemingly perfect glimpses of people’s lives, which set the bar high of how we should be living.

Let’s face it — life sucks sometimes, but we don’t share those moments.

To honor that we have created the opposite…

Who would’ve thought that a sitting still would change my life forever!

It was 2012 and the end of the world was nearing. I had decided to make some changes in my life, so I broke up with my toxic boyfriend, kicked out my lazy-ass roommate, quit smoking, and started meditating.

I had awakened spiritually in my teens, but instead of pursuing that path, I chose to party instead. Even though I knew it wasn’t good for me I wanted to live life to the fullest. So I did. For years.

The thing is, once you awaken it’s hard to ignore what you discovered. Inevitably you come back to the spiritual path…

Let’s face it — this pandemic sucks and has affected us all in some way. I hope these tips bring you some relief.

Let me get this straight — I am actually an introverted digital nomad who loves staying at home. Still, not having a choice has left me very anxious and overwhelmed. I had to find ways to keep my sanity, in addition to my spiritual practices. Here is what I came up with.

1. Learn ukulele (or anything new, really).

During the first lockdown, I ordered a ukulele. Yes, I know it wasn’t “essential,” but honestly, it was for my mental health. I’ve always wanted to learn the ukulele, and I figured it would come in handy as it’s a small instrument you can take anywhere.

I also…

Honestly, I feel like I’ve had several lifetimes within this life! As an avid learner with a curious mind, I strive to learn every day. I learn through life experiences, heartbreaks, human relations, breakdowns, exploring other cultures on my travels, spiritual awakenings, and from my wonderful teachers that appeared when I was ready.

Recently I went through a “middle-age crisis” and I figured since I have lived a full life I might as well share the wisdom I accumulated over the years. …
