I just came back from a journey into the depths of the pain that comes with loosing a beloved one.
In moments like this everything is put into perspective. Things I sometimes worry about or get uptight about just loose meaning.
When feeling this raw pain it becomes so clear what really counts.
And there lies so much light, softness, clarity and love in this pain. It unlocks doors in the heart which might not have been opened in a while.
It opens up a well of tears and I find myself crying about so much more than the death of our beloved brother.
All the sudden everything becomes simple. The mind is quite. The heart speaks.
Love. Love. Love. Love. Love. Dance. Celebrate. Breathe. Honor. Create. Blossom. Your naked feet on the ground. Your heart wide open. Let life in. Let life in. Drink from it. Fill your cup. Praise. Praise. Love. Dance. Celebrate. Love. Dance. Celebrate. Love. Dance. Celebrate.
“All day I think about it, then at night I say it. Where did I come from, and what am I supposed to be doing? I have no idea. My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that, And I intend to end up there.”
I am sure you must have asked yourself these questions. I have. Many times. Big questions. And a hint of an answer:
Mantras are a powerful tool to raise your vibration. I use them on a daily basis to connect with myself and surrender to the higher.
The beauty of Sanskrit mantras
I personally like to chant Sanskrit mantras. The beauty of Sanskrit mantras is, that the meaning and the vibration of words are interconnected. This means that by for example repeating the mantra “om namah shivaya”, which can be roughly translated with “my salutations to Shiva, the auspicious and gracious one” or “I bow to Shiva”, we do not only salute Shiva with words but also (and more importantly) create a vibration that holds the energy of Shiva.
I just flicked through my five-minute journal where I listed every morning three things I am grateful for. And I noticed that over the last weeks I almost every (!) morning wrote that I’m grateful for my morning routine. So I thought it might be worth to write a blog post about it.
I love my morning routine because it wakes me up in a very gentle way and leaves me energised and fresh for the day. It is the time of the day that is reserved for myself. For checking in. Nourishing myself. Centering myself. And probably the best thing about it is, that it rescues me from completely crashing the ground on a bad hair day.
