Tips & Tricks / Secrets:
  • by replacing the self-talk of asking yourself ‘What if it doesn´t work?’ by ‘What, if this does work?’ you are putting yourself in the opportunity to rise and give yourself a chance to learn and grow from challenges
  • acknowledge your body talking to you in symptoms and bring awareness to them
  • unforgiveness leads to an environment for other diseases to grow as it changes the chemistry within your body
  • the body then is not able to defend itself no more and this is crushing yourself
  • start with yourself and know, the hardest person to forgive, is you
  • forgive yourself for the past mistakes and failures and let them go and your self-worth raises to a whole other level
  • by releasing the unforgiveness, you release the heavy burden inside
  • become more present, more aware and more passionate

  • Tip 1: ‘I choose to forgive, have a grateful heart and be happy today’
  • Tip 2 get yourself out of the flight posture: By changing the environment or just giving yourself a break, you signalize your body to be lazy and this reduces the tension
  • by laying down, breathing and saying the affirmation 5-6 times out loud you interrupt the fight & flight and negative thinking patterns
  • Tip for bedtime: Stop watching the news, as they manipulate your mindset to be scared and fearful
  • make it a daily practice to interrupt the negative thought patterns through repetition of your affirmation and envisioning your goals, esp. before bedtime, as this lovely film then is playing in the background of your subconscious mind
  • stop being a people pleaser and love yourself first
  • be thankful & grateful for what you already have and see, you are already blessed and valued
  • Golden Nugget: Whatever you worry about in your life, you are not grateful for
  • develop the character of who you wanna be and you gonna need once you are at the next level by starting with a humble belief in yourself
  • it´s all about what you do when no one is watching - be who you are
  • you know, when you're lying to yourself by living a life that is not authentical to you
