The Happiness Retreat - Sweet Surrender to the new year!

༄ ༄ ༄ ༄ ༄ ༄ ༄ ༄ ༄ ༄ ༄ ༄

Dear soulful friends, dear ones that we meet in the precious Happiness Retreats and the ones that we meet here once in a while.
I have been silent in the last two months, not sending news, thoughts, and insights as I was in a very dark and intimate period of my life. Nothing significant on the physical plane, all is well with my work, family, and health.

But 
What was going on inside me, on the soul level was a huge clearance of old patterns and mindsets that caused me a lot of mistrust and suffering.

I thought I have already clear and clean so much stuff from my life, thought forms, behavioral patterns, belief systems. I cut cords, released vows, adjusted my past life, cleared my energetic bodies from the things no one wants to speak about in public, so the question to my self was:
How much more shadow I have inside me? 

So I dived deeper into the practices, the rituals, the prayers, the singing, the dancing (even with grief, with tears in my eyes) shedding of the skin, greeting farewell to all the things that didn't serve me (naming them or not naming them) always with gratitude.

There is always more to clear,
We can always fly higher,
Love is our nature, our breath, and our soul.

We just need to realize, that the lessons life gives us are not always easy, they can appear in many forms. It is us who need to create more and more awareness and see with open eyes and heart, the gifts of our struggle or suffering and embrace them, honor them, in order to restore our energetic field.

Only after a cycle of clearance, we can set new intentions that call in the positive on the seen and unseen realms.

One of the core teachings that I share with you in the retreats and i practice consciously when setting new intentions, is that we don't pray only about our self.  Intentions must serve others too, help those who feel alone, confused and without purpose. When we pray for us we pray for all humanity sending healing through your breath, meditation, ritual, song and dance.

These last days of 2018 i have prepared for all of us, wishes and intentions for the new year to come, you can be inspired or/and create your own.

  • Lit up a candle and place a small gift next to it, an icon, a flower, some seeds.

  • Take a silent moment and breath with gratitude for your self and for life and speak up your intentions.

  • When your voice is heard the practice is more powerful but if you don't feel ready for it you can always do it in silence.

  • If you decide to follow this practice do it every day for 11 days or even better for 21 days to create a positive light thoughtform around your energetic body.
