The Solar Eclipse Kundalini Experience

“Nations, like stars, are entitled to eclipse. All is well, provided the light returns and the eclipse does not become endless night. Dawn and resurrection are synonymous. The reappearance of the light is the same as the survival of the soul.”_ Victor Hugo

Rebirthing, we are all  in constant reinvention, down to the very cells of our body constantly regenerating themselves… Like nature itself, we too go through cyclical periods in our life, some more constant and significant than others.

However, as nature, we too are subject to major energy recycling and upgrades.

Being a Scorpio, I’m very used to the word rebirth, so with the Spring equinox together with a full solar eclipse coming up on March the 20th, I’ve got a little experience to share with you all.

Last year, in April 2014, we had a solar eclipse. It was the very first time I decided to embrace the energy and power of this phenomenon and meditate on it. I wasn’t prepared for the power of the Kundalini awakening. I searched online for a meditation on it, and I came across the following link:

I felt very connected to the meditation and went to bed after it. While sleeping, my body started to burn up. I was dreaming about the sun.. I was sunbathing on its energy, and I love sunbathing, so I thought it was a cool dream to have together with the solar eclipse.

I woke up in the middle of the night and I felt sunburnt and very hot. I also had a fever.. I didn’t know what was going on. But I knew something strange was taking place. In the following 7 days I was very ill, burning up in bed with fever and no energy. I cried and I was weak; I needed help looking after myself. It has always been hard for me to ask for help as I’m “so independent”.. The fact is I never like to show my weak side or softness, and I try to hide it.

This experience taught me a lot about myself and my fears, as well as a strong energetic upgrade in my body frequency as well as intuitive sensitivity.

I didn’t even know about Kundalini Yoga or the Kundalini energy itself, but it found me…

It took over my body; it knew what I was looking for. Rebirth, connection to mother earth, letting go of the old and surrendering to the sun.

Later in the year, in October 2014, I had a series of upgrades, and guess what was happening during that time? Again, another solar eclipse. The same events pushed me into Kundalini and I started practicing Kundalini Yoga, which led me to a whole new frequency and way of being.

I guess in modern times, people forget the power of these events and how much we can use, connect and benefit from them.

This year again, and in double dose with the Solar eclipse together with the spring equinox, will allow those who want to surrender to the source use this energy in their favour and upgrade their body’s energy.

 The changes are already in the air, I’ve heard from others experiencing the same intensity such as losing track of time, it seems time has been in super speed;  there are also people reporting intense night experiences, being woken up by light – this is reserved to awaken and non-awaken people.

The fact is the energy is in the air. Believe it or not. It has a major impact in our inner and collective system. Even from a scientific point of view, the sun is responsible for life on earth as well as mutations in conjunction to evolution itself.

“Some people would claim that things like love, joy and beauty belong to a different category from science and can’t be described in scientific terms, but I think they can now be explained by the theory of evolution.” _Stephen Hawking

Gene Keys Discovery Part 1- A Voyage Of Self Illumination

“Our own genomes carry the story of evolution, written in DNA, the language of molecular genetics, and the narrative is unmistakable.”_Kenneth R. Miller

So, for those who not know me, I’m a control freak. Well, not in every sense of the word, but I like knowing about outcomes, how things turn out, and playing with the hologram of the matrix manifesting everything and guessing it all. As I found out last weekend, this is not my “fault” (although everything is chosen by us), this characteristic is embedded in my very DNA.

Still, when life has its own way to show me magic, I love and enjoy receiving the gift of surprise and diving into it.

After interviewing Stacy Lynn Floyd, I was invited to attend a seminar/workshop in relation to Gene Keys and DNA activation. I didn’t really look into it or its details until I was actually there, I decided to just go and see what it was all about with no pre-conceptions.

So, on Saturday the 14th of March, I heard for the very first time about Richard Rudd and Andrew Fretwell, as well as the whole idea of the 64 Gene Keys.

Here is a video I made of Richard’s talk about Gene Keys.. I wasn’t prepared for this:

It made so much sense… It helped me to understand some of my most recent experiences with pure flow of energy.

So, while doing an inner child work with my Shaman one day around the first week of February 2014, I woke up in the middle of the night and had a big fright! I woke up and looked at my body, and it wasn’t really there.. it was all green light, pure energy! I immediately freaked out and asked for it to go away, I closed my eyes and I was back to normal. I didn’t know what to make of it, I didn’t know if it was good or bad.. I knew it wasn’t a dream… for some reason I thought it was all fine, and after praying and processing the experience I went back to bed. I told some friends, and my shaman associated this to Archangel Gabriel’s energy, since during that period I was also going through a massive heart opening.

spiritual-awakening-signs-750x410

Don’t get me wrong, I believe in all sorts of stuff. I mean, I experienced a lot of weirdness, but sometimes my mind needs a bit more of an explanation. Therefore, it was just great to come across the Gene Keys and its in-depth studies. It’s very analytical and at the same time it carries a huge amount of information and ancient wisdom.

I’ll go into more detail about Gene Keys when I interview Richard, but for now I just wanted to let you know this project has a wonderful way of allowing you to understand yourself, to accept yourself and to unleash the greatness within your own being.

To start, you must determine your main Genetic Keys, and get to know your main shadows, gifts and true powers (called by Gene Keys Siddhi). Those are directly related to your date, time and location of birth.

Here is a link to establish your Genetic Key profile:

freegenekeys

Once that’s done, you can start looking into your genetic keys. I’d recommend you read the book Gene Keys written by Richard Rudd, and look at all your Keys.

Be prepared to have your mind shaken! Literally, this book has such intense vibration it shakes our entire body. It’s like your cells are downloading the information and reactivating it into their cellular memory…

While reading it, you may experience physical reactions such as headaches and the feeling of vibration.. Or maybe not; that was my own experience.

I hope you enjoy finding out about yourself and stepping into your truths, learning to be and accept your Shadows, utilise your Gifts and unleash the Siddhis/your truth powers.

Thanks for reading,

Love and Light,

Meditation Talk With Marco Dean

I first met Marco Dean in February 2014; I was passing by this famous holistic shop in Covent Garden called Mysteries and looking for something interesting to do, maybe a new course, when I came across a free meditation class.

As I looked at the picture of this man, I couldn’t help but feel a bit curious about the whole thing.  “Mmm I wonder what this class will be like?”

Up to that point, I hadn’t had much meditation practise – apart from a few courses I had taken in the previous year (2013) – so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect or what kind of meditation he would be teaching.

Little did I know how much that class would dramatically change my life.

tumblr_maf3eiVFr41rekltko1_500

“A quiet mind is all you need. All else will happen rightly, once your mind is quiet. As the sun on rising makes the world active, so does self-awareness affect changes in the mind. In the light of calm and steady self-awareness, inner energies wake up and work miracles without any effort on your part.”_Nisargadatta Maharaj

 

Marco held a class on alpha meditation, with shamanic background; with very simple meditation techniques that can be practiced for as little as five minutes a day, and can definitely have an effect on your way of thinking. Not because it changes what you think, but because it enables your consciousness to operate on a better level.

It’s like exercising.. You exercise to have a healthy body, and you eat well, you brush your teeth to make them clean. Well, with meditation, you exercise your brain! It’s weird to explain, as it’s different for everyone.

Nonetheless, meditation has been scientifically proven to enrich and benefit your brain capacity as well as having various other related health benefits.

Quantum physics studies have also acknowledged the power of the mind in creating your own reality. Your thoughts are interacting with everything around you, down to the very atoms.

Therefore, when you start meditating and perfecting your consciousness, “things”start happening.

Anyway, everyone has to start from some point, and I was lucky enough to take part in this weekly meditation class for a year, and now I meditate every day.

Marco is a very interesting character, very mysterious and quirky; it took me a while to get him. That’s the thing with mystics; they make you think, they puzzle your mind, and they don’t give you any answers. Instead, they make you question everything and find out for yourself.

Here is our interview with Marco. I hope you enjoy it.

One of the things I love to hear from Marco in class is the freedom he gives you when you ask a question.

For instance, when asked “How do I know I’m doing it right? Have I reached Alpha?”

The Answer was always the same “You don’t, no one actually knows, it’s subjective, it’s different for everyone – there is no right or wrong.”

Here, you find another short video where we talk about meditation.

If I could have everyone around the world practicing something on a daily basis, it would be meditation. It helps to find yourself, your one truth, it makes you grow and connect to your inner powers and discover that life has much more to offer than what you thought it had.

It will change you into who you are meant to be, and it will open the doors for an amazing journey into self-discovery and empowerment.

For Alpha meditation techniques visit our tutorial links and how-to meditation videos.

When You Surrender To Love

“Love doesn’t need reason. It speaks from the irrational wisdom of the heart.” _ Deepak Chopra

szeretet

In Conflict, that’s how we live most of the time.

Not with anyone else, but with ourselves. In fact, the only reason we have conflicts with others is because we first have an internal aspect of ourselves that we do not accept.

So, we grow into fighting with our own existence. We fight against time, every minute we live is a minute taken away from our life. Right? We are accustomed to the idea that one day “this life” as we know it will be over and it will no longer exist. So what is the point?

Since I was a little girl, I have had this crazy urge to know why we are here. If we are gonna die.. What is the point?  Okay, if we are spirits.. souls.. why are we here? Where did we come from? How was the universe created? Is there a God? Where is he/she?

What is the point? Where do we go? What are we?

So many questions…

Why-are-we-here-300x187 

Well, there was a point I just pretended they were no longer there. I did like everyone else I knew and got on with my life – better not to think of such grand life mysteries.

Luckily for me, I chose a very intense way of learning more about the absolute truths of infinity.. My way was, and still is, LOVE.

I decided love was to show me the way and guide me into light itself (I’m only aware of my choice at present.. it wasn’t so clear in the past).

Enough with the philosophy talk.. let me try and get practical here .. If you read one of my previous articles and discovered my Valentine’s day odyssey, you will be familiar with my heart having a voice of its own and becoming an actual moving power.

So I had some sort of revelation about love, how it actually works when it comes from the heart, and how it liberates your soul..

See, I have been in love so many times.. and every time I had a different lesson to learn, many times I learnt nothing , many times it was just pain (and in those times pain was the teacher).

However, this time pure unconditional attachment-free love is the master and professor of my life learning experiences.

Let’s rewind.. to a week ago.

Tuesday evening, 24th of February, I was on my way to meet this person.. The one who triggered this nuclear chain of events.

Life has this way of teaching and showing us things, even when we assume we have it all figured out, it will show us another aspect that we didn’t quite know was there, or was even possible.

I’m a rather stubborn person. I used to be terrible, now I’m just stubborn (I’m sure along my path I’ll have much to learn about this particular subject).

When I’m convinced a person no longer deserves my love and attention, I completely move on and don’t look back, not even if a part of me says it might be a mistake. Now, I know this reaction is led by fear and Ego, trying to protect my feelings.

The truth is that if you have truly moved on, there is no need to avoid, run or ignore an ex, because they will no longer affect you. If you had to take measures to remove this person from your life and away from you, it’s because they still have some power over you and maybe you haven’t learned what you were supposed to.

… I’m making a point there I promise …

The fact is this: I honestly thought this guy was on his way out of my life and this door was just about to be closed forever.. I didn’t want to have anything to do with him.. no friendship or any kind of contact .. He has already moved on and there is no point in keeping in contact.

I was so very sure and very happy to say goodbye once and for all, wish him all the best and tell him how much I wish him well. So I can be totally open to new people in my heart.

So I’m on my way to meet Mr Nuclear (having in mind it would be a quick one), collect my favourite book  “Awareness” by Anthony De Mello  – which I bet he didn’t even open in the last 3 months – and say goodbye.

So, he says “ Hey, my meeting has been cancelled. Do you have plans? Should we have dinner?”

I wasn’t sure what to say, as I didn’t want to spend much time with him. It was a bit pointless, I thought..

But being polite and all, I told myself “surely it won’t kill me”, plus I have some things I would like to tell him..

We ended up at Vinoteca in Farringdon. If you are a Londoner, you might know the place. It has a rather cosy atmosphere – but this is far away from the point.

As we sat facing each other …. Discussing how things ended, it was hard to hear him as I was trying to focus and not let my tears come out … The whole event was very civilised, but there was something else, a feeling I’m still learning about … The feeling of doing exactly what I was meant to be doing according to my destiny and soul…

I went on and told him how much I have been through in my spiritual journey since I had met him, so many doors have been opened and how happy I am. In fact, I have never been happier and so sure of who I am and what my life purpose is.

I found my soul mission, and guess what, that’s one of the reasons you are able to read this article … because I now know what my soul desires, and this is only a small part of how I wish to communicate with the world.

stock-footage-opening-door-to-heaven
“There will always be a door to the light “- Shiro Amano

He opened so many doors… I was trying to explain to him about karmic contracts and this feeling of knowing him from before incarnating on Earth. The look on his face always amuses me… that “WHAT are you talking about?!” expression…

Does it mean HE Is The One? We are meant to be together? I have no idea what so ever…

I haven’t even had the chance to get to know him well in this life … (I want to, but only time will tell if I will). Would that be as friends or in a romantic way? Again, I have no idea!

The point is, it doesn’t matter … I love him for what he has done, I love him because I remember our agreement made before incarnating in this life … I love him with no reason for loving him, even though he has one thousand faults as well as his one thousand qualities. It is what it is. We both felt this ridiculous familiarity from the first day we met. It is something one can’t explain; it has to be experienced.

I love him beyond this life and I want him to be happy, with me or not, it really doesn’t matter.

I guess this is what happens when you surrender yourself to love. You set whom you love free, so you can experience Freedom itself.

“I have no fear of losing you, for you aren’t an object of my property, or anyone else’s. I love you as you are, without attachment, without fears, without conditions, without egoism, trying not to absorb you. I love you freely because I love your freedom, as well as mine” – Anthony De Mello

Your Soul grows into light and awe. You are in Love with Love itself. Your happiness doesn’t depend on the person, it never did, this love makes everything clear and bright and you find yourself within it.

On that Tuesday evening, I had another magical experience, not because of him, but because once again I was fully in my path feeling and following my truth wearing no masks and talking and flowing from my heart  (if he is reading this he is surely saying, well he is the reason and the trigger of it all – it may be).

It seems like life still has some more lessons on this matter installed for me. What they may be, I don’t know, but I will be sure to share them all with you.

He said to me “Now What? It doesn’t feel like I’ll never see you again..  Don’t be a stranger, stay in touch”.

I still don’t know if he really meant it or not, or if I will actually even see him again..

As we walked out of the restaurant, we laughed about the whole thing, he said no one had ever written about him before.

I went to bed that night in peace, yet I kept waking up early in the morning and his face kept appearing in my dreams and morning meditation. I looked at the clock, it was 6:00 am, and I had that feeling.. that he was also going through the same sleep disturbance…

I texted him later that day and asked, already knowing the answer.. “Were you awake early this morning? On and off around 6:00 am?”

He said: “Yes”..

He doesn’t believe in these things.. But I know, I know what they mean.

I’m no longer in conflict, I’ve surrendered to it , I’ve surrendered to love.

nice-most-beautiful-rose-flower-in-the-world-2014-on-home-garden-with-top-10-most-beautiful-flowers-in-the-world“Loneliness cannot create love, it creates need. Love is not a need.Then what is love? Love is luxury. It comes out of aloneness, when you are tremendously alone and happy and joyous and celebrating, and great energy goes on storing in you. You don’t need anybody. In that moment the energy is so much, You would like it to be shared. Then you give, you give because you have so much, you give without asking anything in return – that is love …When the cloud is full of rain, it showers, and when the flower is full of fragrance, it releases its fragrance to the winds. Unaddressed, the fragrance is released. And the flower does not wait to ask “What is coming back to me in return?” The flower is happy that the winds have been kind enough to relieve him of a burden.”OSHO

The Heart Opening Expression

“Wherever you go ,go with your heart”_ Confucius 

Silly Heart, Frenetic Heart, Wise Heart. 

Right, let’s do this. Probably not the easiest thing I have ever written about, but it certainly has to be expressed. I’m not even quite sure how to go about this experience; let’s say I’m just reporting it.

It was February 14th 2015; I was on my way home, looking forward to writing, and editing the videos and pictures of our Valentine’s Day filming, when I got this Facebook notification that totally messed up my evening.
It was pretty much like being at the edge of a cliff and left with no other option but to jump.

Maybe you need to know a little on the background situation here…

See, I really believe that the world is in need of love, and people willing to open their hearts to it.

Earlier that Valentine’s Day we were filming near Piccadilly Circus. Our task was to ask people to send love messages to their loved ones or to the world. The message with the best social media results was to receive an Amazon voucher as a prize.

Being such a Love missionary, I was a bit let down and disappointed by the fact that a lot of people didn’t want to send their love to the ones that matter in their life. Not even to friends or family, they were more interested in taking pictures with our massive heart balloon props. In fact, some wanted to pay to take a picture with the prop, but would refuse to send a small message of love on Valentine’s Day.

Here is the prop so you know what I’m talking about: (cute prop, I know).

Okay, fair enough, people are afraid of expressing themselves – afraid of exposure. I just thought it would have been much easier to find people interested in sharing love on Valentine’s Day. At the end, we found some brave ones that were able to do it. Their videos are on our YouTube channel:

 https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxq69eIrlpZGirt-C2SONeA


It sure got me thinking …


If I’m putting all this effort into getting people to open up their hearts and if they are refusing to do so, something must be wrong with my vibration. If the law of attraction is correct, and like attracts like… Right?


So, what was really happening inside myself? Why was I reflecting/manifesting an unsatisfactory result?


Back to the Facebook alert (right I’m doing this – courage).


So, my plans were to stay home or maybe meet some of my friends in Central London. I was quite happy to stay in and focus on writing and editing the videos for the website launch of the 
Power Within Us etc. (it’s a project I’m running). 

But when I saw on my notifications that the guy I have been “in Love” with for the past 3 months was nearby, things took a sudden turn of events… 


Something rather strange happened. 


My heart went totally crazy, it started vibrating, beating so fast and strong it was absolutely overwhelming. 

I could hear its voice loud and clear saying, “This is it! He is nearby, let’s go and see him. It’s Valentine’s Day, we must go and take a chance.”

See … I immediately panicked! I was pacing up and down my flat trying to calm myself down, I was alone at home and had to take full consideration of my heart’s request and make the right decision.


My first thoughts were:


 “Wait a second! We are no longer dating, you haven’t seen him in a month, things didn’t end well; and not only that, you already have a set date to catch you with him this coming week, there is no need to stalk the poor guy and act like a crazy person – you might freak him out even more. After all, he already stated he is no longer interested in you.


Reason was speaking now, and I was letting my mind analyse every possible outcome and try to predict losses and the impact of my actions.

But once again my heart spoke:
heart
“How pathetic of you Sabrina, preaching to the world that people should open their hearts and declare their love and feelings to others when you can’t even get past your mind and follow what I’m telling you to do.”

And BOOM! Something clicked! I wasn’t connected to my heart. 

You know those moments, right? When life rips off the blinkers?!


It was like a big slap in the face. Wake up, Wake up, it’s time to make the dream come alive. It’s time to live fully, to listen and follow your heart with no questioning, with no doubts!


Ohhh dear, it was so hard to see it. I was ignoring my feelings and needs, making all sorts of excuses in my mind to why I should not follow my heart and go after what I wanted. 


I thought I was losing the plot for a second. I had to sit down and ask again, try to connect to my inner truth (so called higher-self), you know.. Make the right decision.. 


So the question popped into my head, right from my soul:


“What is the only true thing stopping you from following your heart and not taking a chance to meet this person you truly want to be with?”


And here is the full honest answer: “FEAR!” Fear of rejection, fear of not having my feelings corresponded to, fear of been made fun of, or for acting in a way others would not understand.


Okay, so after this inner chat, there was only one thing to do.


Fear was the only real reason why I would not follow what my heart was demanding me to do. So it was time to be brave and to stop being such a hypocrite. 


It’s very easy to carry a massive flag with spirituality written on it, go around and preach:

 “Fear is the enemy, love is the answer to everything.” 
Then go and launch a project with the intention to change the world into a more open hearted place. But when it comes to you fully acknowledging and being aware of what is happening with your feelings and emotions. When it comes into your personal life and decisions it is not so easy to let go of the fear and do what you preach!

fear

 

Not this time.

No No, Not this time! 
I told my mind to f*ck off (sorry about the language). I said out loud: Fear is not controlling me. It’s my choice, it’s my life, and I’m taking over. And I screamed – AHHHHH!

“I’m listening to you heart, for the first time, I’m not gonna let any doubt, any question or any fear get in the way. I’m going after what you asked me to do and see what happens.”

Crazy? Maybe…

So, I got ready and marched in my truth. My heart beating so fast, I felt like a hummingbird, weird comparison I know.. I’m weird. I don’t care, that’s what makes me who I am, my full weirdness.

I was so scared and I had no plan, I just went for it. I didn’t know what I was going to say, I didn’t even know if he was still going to be there or if he had gone to another place.
What about if he was with someone else? No no, it did not matter… I was following my heart.

See, back in the day, that would have been a perfect time to have a big double vodka something, but I’m not drinking (I’m on detox) – exactly ! Haaaaarrdddd work!

As I walked in, with no plan and not knowing what was going to happen, I started to feel this inner bliss, I no longer cared for the outcome. I was so happy to be listening to my heart that whatever happened was not longer the point.

See, for once, I got what the enlightened say.. Happiness is in the path .. That’s what it means. It is the process, not the result .
It is to fully embrace your soul desires with no fear.

While I’m at the bar, looking at him from a distance, I didn’t know what to expect. I knew I had to say hi and that’s as far as what my heart had told me to do.

When he came by to talk to me, I could feel my whole body vibrating, what an amazing feeling.

It was so weird to hear his voice from the place I just came from, everything was crystal clear, pure and so bright. He was completely oblivious to what was happening to me in that moment, he had no idea whatsoever what all that meant to me, and how it was setting my heart and soul free.

What I felt was something absolutely new. It wasn’t bad or good. It was stillness bathed in the purity of the soul’s voice.

I didn’t know what was next, I had never taken a fully heart centred action like this before, my Ego has always been en-charge, this time there was no Ego, only love. Unconditional heart energy leading the whole process.

I wish he knew all the complexity that was going on in my universe, and how internal doors were being unlocked.

When he kissed me and touched me, it felt amazing, but again fear and mind started to rationalise everything that was happening. I was once again afraid of the results and what could happen. Nonetheless, I was living in the moment, so I was going to follow my feelings.

After we kissed we agreed to leave together, but just like the wind and fluidity of life, things changed. After a few minutes, something made him change his mind and regret his actions.. Was that a reflection of my second of fear and doubt? Or was it to do with his fear and his doubts? Who knows..
It was all too much for me to deal with. My heart was so wide open it was hard to breathe.

In any case, after saying goodbye and going separate ways, I left with this amazing bliss.

Yes, maybe the outcome was not what I was expecting or maybe I had no expectations.
It was all such a rush of new pure emotions that it was hard to understand what my feelings were.

Sure, it was amazing to have kissed him on Valentine’s day, after not having seen or spoken to him in weeks.. And even when he said he couldn’t be with me it hurt, but everything was so… REAL.

The whole experience was truly amazing.

I clearly remember walking home and my heart was vibrating in this new frequency.

Ever since February 14th, my heart has been cracked open.  I can no longer ignore its voice.

All I can do is to be thankful for finally understanding what it means and how it feels to be open hearted and flow from your heart.

You see, when you don’t live fully heartedly, it is as if you have been sipping life from a cup.. Taking small little sips and never fully tasting the flavour. You have only glimpses of the taste.
When you make the leap and have the courage to let go of everything else and follow your dreams, listening to your heart’s truth, you become life itself, you drawn in its flavour, connecting with the source. Everything is magical and so alive.

All I can say is that I wish you nothing less.

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart”          Helen Keller

High-Heart

People have no idea how absolutely utterly completely undeniably amazing is to do something from your heart, something pure, something complete, that is your truth.

When you walk on your truth standing high and tall with your arms open and you listen to your heart without questioning, without judging, without letting anything else come between you and your heart and what you truly believe in –It’s just unbelievably amazing, there are no words, it’s just magical.

Happiness Chasers: Are You Happy or Chasing It?

We are all chasing something. People talk about happiness and what it is…

But who really knows what Happiness is?
Do you?

People are too busy chasing things, achieving goals and setting targets..
Running after whatever they think they need, we all do it, or have done it.

And so, people think achieving those goals is reaching happiness…
Then setting new goals, running after them, making them happen – without stopping to question if they are happy.

They keep themselves busy chasing.. They sure don’t have the time to wonder if they are happy or what makes them happy..

So they spend their life chasing things and avoiding looking inside.

It’s scary to think all your life you were chasing goals and not stopping to think about yourself and finding what truly makes you spark inside.

I’ve met so many people like that, in fact it’s rather hard to find someone that’s not like that. I like to think my friends are different.. but I never had the chance to ask.

I’d like to think I am different.. But am I?

Sometimes it is so obvious… You see in people’s eyes that they have no clue about what makes them happy and they won’t even dare to find out – to truly find out.

I haven’t quite figured out what happiness is; or maybe if it is so many different things combined into one long word
…H-a-p-p-i-n-e-s-s...

That might be why it is so hard to describe what happiness is, as it’s not just the one thing.

But one thing I know, is what happiness isn’t.. Chasing!

Chasing after something is not happiness … nor is achieving or getting what you are chasing after. That’s an illusion. A damn big fraud, and we have all felt it.. When you want something so bad and when you get it, the feeling of achievement is there but after a while it goes away.. It’s like you need something else to chase after.

Although it’s your right to be happy, sometimes you can’t make it happen.. you just waste your time being busy chasing things and telling yourself this is what you want and need.

I think there is always a choice to be made.

The closest I have ever gotten to figuring out what happiness is, is by knowing a bunch of things that happiness is not..

And the happiest I have ever been has nothing to do with anything I was chasing.. it was more like a moment .. a single moment that went on for a period of time in which it floated through me like the wind like the warm sunshine, it’s magical and you can’t quite describe it.

However, some moments are attached to things, people and goals..

I’m not talking about those…

I’m talking about some pure simple happiness attached to nothing, it’s just there and you don’t even know why you are happy, you just are.

Maybe it’s looking within, finding yourself..

Knowing who you are and loving who you are..

Not the WHO everyone else thinks you are..

Definitely not the WHO people make you out to be – society, friends, religion or a partner.

But the WHO only YOU know..

It’s so hard figuring that out and getting to know the real YOU..

But there are moments when you have that clarity and a glimpse of knowing and feeling it.

Maybe that’s a big step to finding happiness..

Knowing WHO you are – embracing, loving yourself and accepting every bit of it; being true to this person only YOU know.

So the best advice I can give you is to stop chasing everything..

The dream job, loads of money, the dream relationship … Thinking that will bring you happiness…

It simply won’t.

Start chasing yourself.. start finding out who YOU are and what made you be this way.

De-construct all these layers everyone else built you to be, and get to know the real you.

It’s not an easy task, but it’s worth it.

The rest will follow into place… You can still set goals and do everything else, but you will be happy while doing it and not at the end when you achieve it, followed by the vacuum of the next thing to chase and to run after that false state of happiness.

Once you find yourself, you will know that happiness is nowhere to be found, apart from within Oneself.

It was there all along waiting for you to find it… In you.
