…and this is my story. It’s about creativity, health and balance. It’s the way we live. Being part of something incredible, to connect to others, to create memories, unforgettable moments for us and for the world in return.
Why I do what I do and why I am so passionate about life….Welcome to my journey!
Life is a journey. Every day, every minute, every second. We are all connected to everyone and everything around us in this world. Each moment is an experience. Life is learning. Learning to have humor, joy, to be in nature. And everything that comes with that is love, happiness and health. We want to believe in peace. The peace in us, in the universe, in all of us. But sometimes the world shifts beneath our feet. Reacts and collides. We are here to learn, to experience and to create. Not every moment feels light and easy. Sometimes it’s dark and heavy. But we can decide what we do with it.
Life felt heavy for me for a long time. It’s been a wild journey through learning and failing. Trying again and failing again. I ended up with a burnout at the age of 23. I felt frustrated and depressed. I was stuck in a system that didn’t feel right. I moved around with fear and anxiety. No confidence. But I knew that there is more, that I had to get up one more time, give it another try and make better choices for myself. We all have habits, beliefs and experiences that shape our lives. And that’s where my journey inwards started.
I always felt like I didn’t fit in. Even when I tried to. Trying to be like the others, when deep inside of me was a longing for something else. But nobody tells you that it is okay just to be you. That you don’t have to do certain things, that you can choose your own path, a job that you love. Whatever it is.
My first wake up call was a car accident. I can’t remember what happened but when I saw the car afterwards there was no chance of me surviving this. But I did with just a broken thumb (my friends were enjoying this telling me to give them a thumbs up which I couldn’t do for a long time. I couldn’t make my thumb straight) and a few bruises. When I was in that car and I “woke up” my first thought was “my mom is going to kill me”. I was in a ditch and my car just crashed into a tree and that’s what I was thinking. Life is very interesting!
But this was my call for there is more. I didn’t know what but there was more. I finished my studies, left Germany and started my adventure in Portland, Oregon and I ended up living in Sydney, Australia. Before I, one more time, went back to this “normal” life. Got a job in a film production. Worked and worked and worked. Until everything inside of me was screaming again. Punching and showing me that this is not my path. I got the worst migraine/headache I have ever felt. I couldn’t speak anymore. There were no words coming out of my mouth. I tried so hard but there was nothing and when they finally came out it wasn’t what I wanted to say. I lost control. And on top of that it got so far that I wasn’t able to move my leg anymore. A clear sign to stop. And I did…
My whole life I made choices for others. I did things because I believed that is what I had to do. But it didn’t make me happy. I needed that wake up call to realise that I have the ability to make better choices for myself. That every thing that happens to me is because of the choices I made.
The good and the bad, the ups and the downs, the fear and the joy. There are so many possibilities in this world. So many things we can do. But sometimes we just need to stop, rest, breathe and relax. One of the things that hypnosis brought me is that grounding feeling that I know carry with me wherever I go. Which helps me to connect with myself, my body and the choices I make. I took responsibility for my body, my health, my actions, my thoughts, my beliefs and my life.
That’s the first step you can take and everything else will follow in whatever ways you allow it to. We are all unique, and there is nothing that fits us all. But to create lasting change we need to go to the root cause. That’s why my studies took me from becoming a health coach and trainer to learning Thai Massage and studying Functional Medicine and becoming a hypnotherapist. Hypnosis helped my to become more confident, to release my fears and my past. It created a whole new person, that I deeply love now. I am living a life that feels right for me. It still holds ups and downs. But I have created a foundation and a grounding feeling inside of me that whatever challenge I face I am able to handle it, learn from it and grow. And that for me is the deepest and most sustainable way for healing. I hope I can inspire you and guide you on your own journey.
Finding that halt in this fast-pacing world. What matters most is that you use every minute, every second, every moment in this world to feel, to experience, to love, to move, and to laugh. Especially the last one. Feeling that lightness in yourself, feeling that little kid in yourself. How deep can you laugh, how light can you walk? Remember those moments where nothing worried you? We can learn to take responsibility for our actions, thoughts and beliefs again. To become that person that allows you to laugh every day, to cry every day, to take every wave and every day as a new chance.
