Time to redefine success


Your soul needs to express itself in this life. But it is so respectful to the brain that it will not impose. So in order to hear the souls voice we need to calm down our brains.

I've already made a post similar to this one called Abundance - What it takes to be rich. If you read this post you will know my background.

Now, I got the inspiration to write more about true riches and abundance. As I wrote in the post from the above link I do not count riches in money or any other material things. I count riches as a peaceful state of bliss and connectedness with your inner voice that comes from the place above your heart - the chest area. I wrote about this voice and how to meet it in the post Inner Voice.

For two years now I have not had a day job. Instead I teach and the rest of the time I am trying to figure out totally new branch that I've started to educate myself about. Two years ago when I've decided to quit my job I have had savings and since then I've been investing in my online knowledge. Now that I spent my savings, I am teaching  others and earning money in that way, but the situation is I do not live alone. I live with my husband who earns great money with whatever he does. Because he is used to it he sees me as a problem in our household, because we have our accounts mixed and I buy lots of things with his hard earned money.

To be honest I do not care if I have money or not. When I have it it great, and when I don't have a dime it is all good too.So this troubles my husband so much. That is why I suggested to him that we split our earnings, our expenses so each of us could have our own paycheck for themselves.

Be who you are - Be strange if that will give you satisfaction


If people tell you that you are strange. If they give you "the look" like you are weird. If other in any way give you vibe that they are in any way better than you, then just remember this quotation picture and know that you are free to act strangely, dress strangely and if someone doesn't like it he dosn't need to look.

Be strange if that will give you satisfaction. Remember this is your life and you need to follow your rules.

Peace, Love & Unity!

So little time, so busy To Enjoy Life!



In the last few days I tend to get really frustrated with the idea of lack of time. Sometimes I even get angry about the things I don't manage to do during the day. But I think generally this frustration comes of not knowing the Universal laws. What kind of laws that are I will talk in just a minute.

So, now I am in a tight deadline to make one of my projects working and earning, but I am still in a process of learning about this field because it is totally new for me.

Then feelings of frustration overwhelm me because I know it is not possible to do it, and then again hope dies last, and I always think that something will happen and it will start working.

Since I've quit my daily job, almost 2 years ago now, I've been earning money by teaching people in my own home for donations. And this is the way I manage to earn enough to live more than pretty good life. But on the other hand I've been learning this new business of online marketing and graphic design that I've been excited about for two years now.

One thing I've noticed lately happening with me are peaks of creativity. For example, really excellent pop/country/fun songs started to pour out of me. I have a great movie idea story. I attract lots of people to myself who sees my happiness of freedom being home entrepreneur, healthy body mind and spirit entity. I guess this satisfaction of daily doing things I love and that fills me with respect towards myself is very sexy and cool to others.

And I am very grateful for this being this way because before it was nothing like that. I see so many changes in my personal and lets call it a "working life". But really I love teaching, I love people that I get to teach and I love learning this online business together with graphic design.

And I guess it is a big piece of cake for me to eat it all at once and very fast because I might choke, right?

My ways of how to succeed in life to feel that fullfilling feeling every day

I hear and see people everywhere around me talking about trying to do something fulfilling in their life. I hear them saying how they would like to do every day something they love and enjoy, something meaningful. Admitting that is the first step for them towards fulfilling this need.

I think we are all subconsciously aware of this fact:


Some of us are able to accomplish things mostly due to our discipline, and for those of us who are not so disciplined, like me it will take longer time to realize what I want and how to do it. I am pretty slow doer and I enjoy being slow. I enjoy that path towards the goal. Also to help myself reach fullness in my heart and soul I have learned few tricks on how to change my pattern so I can grow.

When I say pattern I mean usual way of reacting and doing things.

Abundance - What it takes to be rich?



" When you focus on Being a Blessing, God always makes sure that you are always blessed in abundance." Joel Osteen


There was a time I thought that being rich meant making and owning specific amount of money.
I knew satisfaction had something to do with abundance also, and I was taught that satisfaction and happiness come after you're abundant with money. This is how my parents explained, this is what I've picked up from being an MTV child, reading about celebrities in magazines and so on. Also I've learned it like that because lots of people validate you on this bases, maybe even non intentionally. You are better excepted in our society I guess.

I have finished Faculty of Economics and have found a good job immediately after graduation. Then I thought my life is finally beginning with my paycheck every month. Paycheck kept coming but my satisfaction kept falling. I got disappointed with the whole system of producing highly educated people and all of obligations that came after that. I didn't see the good meaning in going to work every day and making money to pay the debts in next 30 years. This was crazy in my head and I had to try doing something differently just to satisfy my feelings.

To Workout Or Not To Workout

I love my workouts! I usually do them every or every other day. I take long runs in the morning and after that I do 30 minutes of yoga.

Considering I eat mostly raw Eco fruits and vegetables I am in pretty good shape even if I skip few days of exercise.

Well, last 3 weeks was a period of no workout at all and I have all the best excuses in the world.

I have no time to workout because I have a lot of work to do, and the weather was cloudy and rainy so I skipped both runs and yoga.

I love to workout in the nature because I feel great after I've shaken my body and organs in the fresh air :-) After that I feel strong and I feel I am up to any task in my day.

So, now I have a new trick to use to motivate myself to do my workout routine regularly, and I think it is a good thing to share it because I feel so confident that it will make me not skip my workouts any more.

This is the new trick:

Inner Voice - My Heart Spoke With Me This Morning / How Do I know It's My HEart And Not My Brain Speaking?




For a long time now I have a friend telling me; "Antonija you should trust your inner voice more. Trust your inner voice. Listen to it and let it guide you."

How do I distinct between my inner voice telling me something and my brain and ego speaking? I didn't understand the difference.

And then it hit me this morning while I was still waking up. It felt like somebody was teaching me the difference. It was a clear message with steps:


           ---------   LOCATION OF MIND VOICE AND INNER/HEART VOICE   --------

1. First came the awareness of brain speaking ---- located in my head
2. Then came the awareness of this other voice going out of this warm feeling----located in my chest ( I never knew this one existed till this morning)


          -----------  AWARENESS OF SEPARATENESS OF THE VOICES    -----

1. Then came the awareness of me doing my morning stretching up and enjoying it and inner voice was all talking about it. At the same time I was aware my brain thinking of what happened yesterday and worrying of how will it go today. So I was aware of the two voices speaking at the same time. That meant that I can choose on which one I can focus.

2. Than I became even more aware these voices speaking at the same time are separated from each other.



------------  ACKNOWLEDGE THE BRAIN AND EXCUSE YOURSELF FOR A MINUTE ------

My Way


As a woman who was raised in a Christian conservative family, I was taught it is OK not to speak what is on my mind and to keep it to myself. I was taught not to express myself and to do what next is in order to be done. So first was schooling, then job from 9-5, then boyfriend, then marriage and then what comes next. 

It's not that anything is wrong with that sequence, but if you are anything like me than everything is wrong with that.

First all kinds of illnesses attacked my body. I had this strong emotion that if I don't start living my way I will explode and it felt like a pressure from inside my body. But nothing was exploding because I was raised that it is the best for everyone not to make any attempt to live in a different way than taught.. Well it was the best, it was the best for everyone but me.

Even though state of my body and mind was getting worst I never even though it was all just because I wasn't expressing. I always knew I think very differently than others but I was made assured that my thought, opinions and beliefs were sick and not normal.
 

Being lucky? - Manifestation



I realize that the place we are at right now in our lives is a product of our decisions, paths we've chosen. Some people call it a manifestation.

In my own life people tell me how lucky I am, "having all I need", and me being satisfied and happy most of the time is a product of that how much luck I've had in my life. I am very lucky I admit and I am grateful for every thing that led me to this point in life. but I don't "have it all" because I've been lucky...

I am a definitely very happy person, childish, not taking life too seriously. I make mistakes all the time, sometimes I hurt people with my decisions. I definitely make some people really mad with my opinions. Sometimes I am sorry that it has to be that way, but in general I don't worry about it too much.

That is why my conclusion is that I have "everything" in life made easy not because I've been lucky, but because I am in general light and happy person not taking every rejection and discomfort seriously.

It is really not very good to conclude for someone: it is easy for you...you have parents helping and similar conclusions. One can only think he knows but to actually know is to be in that person's skin.

It is our relationship with light vibes like fun and happiness that determine in which direction we'll go in life. It determines will we pick up situations that compliment our wishes.

Life gives the same set of tools to all of us who come to this physical reality. Our mind is a tool. If you tune up to a better resolution, you'll be able to see more and know more. If you tune to lower resolution you'll see less, but that doesn't mean you'll have a hard time. It is all in how we perceive things to be.

True Love - Your Kids





I would like to share thoughts on a claim that my friend and also a new father of a cute baby made.

I have no babies and I do not have urge to be called mom ever. So I cannot tell you how it feels to make another human specimen, and I can surly tell you I laugh when some parents explain how you cannot know true love before you have your baby.

That  would mean than none can ever feel pure love unless he/she has a baby, right?

I just want to tell those kind of thinkers that you should ask yourself that just maybe you have no idea what love is at all. It is because those people identify love with possessing things and people. They never experienced any true kind of love feeling ever because they cannot see the endless happiness in sun, sky and planet Earth. They cannot feel happiness when other people's kids talk to you and smile at you, because they are limited believing you need your own for that.

If they truly believe that one needs his/her own kid to feel true happiness and meaning in life you are deeply emotionally limited.

World Poverty - Get Satisfaction



I was reading this story the other day about poverty in the world...

.......one day a father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country. He wanted to show his son how poor people live.

They spent a couple of days on the farm living with a family that they considered very poor.

While they were returning home father asked his son how was the trip for him and did he saw how poor people live.


“Oh yes”, said the son and continued:
“I saw that we have one dog and they had four.
“We have a pool that reaches to the middle of the garden and they have a creek that has no end.
“We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night.

“Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon.
“We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight.

“We buy our food, but they grow theirs.
“We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them.”

The boy’s father was speechless. Then his son added:
“Thanks, Dad for showing me how poor we are.”

Meaning Of Life - What Is Life All About?



As I was watching this short video about meaning of life, I momentarily realized how we just run through different moments in life. Just escaping them.

Just to do them as quickly as possible. Trying to get to some point in life that we think it will make meaning for us.

And that word....you know...the one.. SOME DAY, it will all be different! Ha ha, what's wrong with that saying? This "some day" is NOW! Right?

To Change The World Be Who You Are



To be who you are is to ...
+ be free from what other people think of you
+ TRY THIS >>
Being free of what others think of you, to be who you are....well, that is probably the hardest thing to change about yourself. If you are anything like me you will know this because I am in this process too.

Bored With Life? - Are You Leading A Boring Life?



OK, so I just got a flow of inspiration to write this down.

If you feel like life is boring and if you want to make it interesting than you should definitely get out of your comfort zone and start taking risks. Actually there is no reason for anyone to be afraid of anything because we are not meant to stay on the Earth, so we better go and live this life while we still can without fear of what will others say and what if I hurt myself.

Maybe this will be a great mantra for you to stop thinking about things as being god and bad, right or wrong.

Maybe it will be a good way to stop treating yourself too seriously.
Here it goes:

"It's my life, so I stopped asking for permission to live it the way I like.
I DO NOT wanna settle for status quo!
I am willing to go for my dreams and be absolutely unreasonable about making them true. Because usually the best things in life come to me when I am being unreasonable and not afraid to embarrass myself."
