What is it for you, that really counts in Life? Setting clear priorities is key for me these days ~ and also the reason why i will stay off the screens for a while longer.
I Hope your Journey into the new year felt easefull & conscious 🙏🏻✨🤍
My priorities this year are my Family, my health & how my physical Body feels (Not good at the Moment) and there is a completely new way for me to order my finances, get my Altersvorsorge going 🚀, Invest and gain Knowledge, which feels so empowering, especially as a Woman and mother to a daughter.
And If that makes you feel Like "jessys got it all sorted" 🤣 i don't. My Life is bright & dark, Like the moon phases, Like Summer & Winter, Like Nature, which we are.
Yet: i reached a new Level of being grateful for ALL that is.
MAY YOU FIND WAYS TO YOUR ESSENCE
MAY YOU FEEL YOUR INNER UNTOUCHABLE LIGHT
MAY YOU DARE TO EXPRESS IT
MAY YOU STAY TRUE TO YOURSELF
AND LIVE BY YOUR PRIORITIES 💗
With Love from Portugal ☀️
📷thanks @fullofjoy.isabelle for caputuring is and making Sure we don't ohave Selfies only...
Innere Freiheit, was bedeutet das eigentlich? Für mich ist es der Moment, indem im außen was passiert, mit dem ich überhaupt nicht gerechnet habe
(ein Kommentar, eine finanzielle Situation, jemand pöbelt mich an, ich verliere etwas, mein Flug wird storniert, mein Baby schläft nicht ein, etwas macht mir plötzlich Angst,....)
Irgendwas wirft mich heftig oder sanft aus der Bahn und ich bemerke, wie ich innerlich (!) (denn niemand sieht das von außen)
wie ich ganz ruhig bleibe
wie ich geerdet bin
wie ich mich sicher fühle
wie mein Körper NICHT mit erhöhtem Puls reagiert
wie mein Nervensystem nicht in den sympatikus, also Kampf, Flucht oder freeze springt
Ich bleibe innerlich ruhig. Ich überlege. Atme.
Und dann mache ich einen move.
Man nennt das auch R E S I L I E N Z
>>> und das geile ist, wir können das üben! Auf Zellebene mit unserm Körper.
>>>> wir können unserem physischen Körper beibringen, dass sie sicher ist und unsere Reaktion auf Stressoren verändern.
"Well i Hope you are able to stay true to yourself" were the words of a dear friend before i was entering an emotionally activated relationship where i knew i am likely to fall back into my inner child and that it could end in a desaster.
This sentence stuck with me since then.
Staying true to ourselves is so hard!!!!
📣Speaking it out
Being ok with making the others feel discomfort or strong emotions
😌Knowing that my truth is not wrong or too much
😎That i can Always Change my mind
🦿💃Moving how i want, where i want
👻Laughing as loud as i want
🤡Wearing what feels good
👽Knowing our needs (my needs sometimes feel they are too much, too needy, too XYZ). But they are Not. Neither are yours.
❤️🔥Defining & communicating our boundaries.
Realising when you missed the Moment and being courageous enough to say:
>>>> I am sorry. I Made a mistake. This i what i really need in order to be true to myself. <<<<
This Friend also said recently to me:
"We have to dare to make others feel uncomfortable for the purpose of truth."
So, i did that latetly. It was tough.
It felt difficult. I was scared.
🧚And afterwards: i felt FREE! So proud. Liberated.
We CAN practice to see & respect the other persons response or emotion, knowing it's not ours.
DON'T BE SCARED TO SPEAK & LIVE YOUR TRUTH.
WE OWE IT TO THE OTHERS.
WE OWE IT TO OURSELVES TOO.
In that difficult process i received loving support from my best friend @benedikt.nagel who Happens to be my husband too (🥰) and from those amazing two women ❤️ who are btw also offering amazing Work >
@antara.atelier and her @schamanische.yoga.akademie & @fullofjoy.isabelle
So grateful to have you in my Life 🙏🏻✨
Through our painfree, wild, peaceful and magical Homebirth experience i shed so many layers... So many..
Never before have i expanded my comfort zone so much everyday (!).
> Yes that means i am stepping into the unknown everyday >> And learing even more to trust it.
The amount of Love being felt is undescribable. It's so strong that i still cry almost everyday ❤️.
And only a single drop of that Love washes away the sometimes exhausted Body, unregulated nervous system and the self pitty i sometimes feel when i really need to pee or shower or eat but the Baby is about to fall asleep in my arms.
I practice patience. Especially with myself.🌹
I practice self Love on the Journey of getting to know this new Body.
It May look the Same to you.
But it has changed so much.
Bringing myself back to every single precious Moment of wittnessing my daughter opening up has been and will be my Go to.
P R E S E N C E .
I am exploring a lot of somatic Work lately that Helps me to Release strong or stuck emotions & tension and to FEEL ME.
I focus on that Love. On this Gift of being her Mom. I often think: really!? Me!? I get to be YOUR mother. Wow 😍
The communication i had with her Soul starts to fade and i beginn to connect more to her manifested physical presence. I feel its a Natural process as she is also landing more and more in her beautiful Body.
5 MONTHS already! I better get back now and watch her sleep. Don't want to miss a single breath of this precious oh so precious time 💕
Sending a warm Wave of Love your way ~
May it enter your Heart, Break it Open,
May you See the vastness of your Heart,
Its glow & Radiant light.
May you feel at Home in your Body.
Or find ways that Help you to do so.
When i look back i want to be able to feel like i've taken it all in ~
I want to know that i took the time & calm to stare at the divine face of my daughter for as many hours and days as i wanted.
I want to look back and be like: we Had a blast! We inhaled bliss and exhaled love. And took as many naps as we wanted.
I want to be soaked in every little sound you make, amazed by every movement and i want to remember every single tear i cried just by looking at you.
I want to see myself in moments of exhaustion as this stunning mother that i am, giving, learing, failing, holding so so much.
The 4th Trimester is Babys first 3 months outside of the mothers Body. A First Separation, yet, Babys only realise about 7 months after birth, that they are a seperate being ~ before that, they feel ONE with Mamas Body, breath, nervous system and so does the mother feel ONE with her Baby.
Only recently i started letting Other people hold you. Or even exposing us to the World outside of our Bubble.
I am grateful i'll be able to Look Back at this 4th trimester with ease & Love, knowing i did it my way, our way. And it feels so right.
And because of that, i'll continue doing it Our way, and i'll cope with other peoples discomfort and i'll get even better at setting boundaries and i'll step in - once more, and again and again - into that Powerful fearless linoness goddess self of Mine that i got to know when i gave birth to you 🤍
Happy 3 months (and 2 days) Birthday my sweet Angel & Guru Freya Malina ✨
Yoga has changed the way i think, what i allow myself to receive, it has brought ease, Selflove- & Care and so much more stillness & calm into my Life > especially into my Life Off the Yogamat.
I truly belive that without Yoga i wouldn't be living in Portugal and my wonderful, empowering & magical pregancy & birth experience would have looked completely different. There is so much more to Yoga than Asana, the Body Poses.
Learning to unlearn.
Travelling to our Essence.
EXPERIENCING oneness with source, with each other and all that is.
Trusting Life. Fully and Always.
This is Yoga.
Yoga as a way of Life.
The Online Portion of our 200h YTT Starts already this August with a monthly live practice & circle
💻 You can book your Personal info call now via Link in Bio 💗
The yogic path is a way of un-learning and remembering who we really are ~ When i gave birth to my daughter i felt my rawest, strongest, purest, softest, wildest, most loving, most present self. I've ever felt.
Already in early pregancy i realised how much my holistic Yoga practice & Personal Development has given me:
How it prepared me in the most effortles way to honour my Body.
To have a deep sense of body awareness and the courage to listen to it.
To Remember to breathe.
How i learned to Work with the subconscious mind.
To be spiritually connected to source within and around me.
And so much more ~
More than ever i realise what Yoga does for us.
to the ancient Rishies who channeled those practices. To all my teachers. To the different lineages.
May we - as the Yoga Teachers of this time - never forget to honour the traditions and stand in our own practise with devotion🙏🏻✨
Now i'm taking all of this with me as a solid basis to embark to new fields of teachings. My daughter, this divine light being, teach me, i'm ready to learn from you from scratch i know you remember so much more than i do.
BABY BLISS ~ Yoga & Persönlichkeitsentwicklung in der Schwangerschaft
Mein online Kurs ist endlich da! 🙏🏻
Während ich mit meiner Tochter Freya schwanger war, habe ich gespürt, wie sehr mich mein bisheriger Yogaweg und die Tools aus der Persönlichkeitsentwicklung auf diese besondere Zeit vorbereitet und unterstützt haben.
Ich konnte mich dem starken Calling dies zu teilen nicht wiedersetzten:
Für alle werdenden Mamas da draußen habe ich diesen Kurs entwickelt:
💖 In the night from the 24th to the 25th of March our daughter Freya Malina was born peacefully in the safety of our Home at exactly 00:00 o'clock ✨
I can't belive she's already been out of my Body and close to my Heart for over a moth now 🙏🏻
Our birth Journey is the most amazing experience i've ever had in my entire life, paired with the magical realms of pregancy that open Up the curtains to the subtle worlds ~
Birth can be empowering, If we as mothers mothers claim the responsibility for it back 💗
We can learn how to work with the widely spread fearful approach towards birth. Because where there is fear, there is tension, there is pain, there is more fear and so on...
Where there is No fear, there is No pain.
I experienced both.
We all have the potential to birth a Baby safely, without any medication, with JOY and a Smile on our faces 🙌 yes, with a Smile! I Smiled a Lot 😍 i knew my Baby was coming closer with each Rush.
It requires preperation, an overall healthy Lifestyle, working with your mind & Body and much more.
Freya had no reason to cry when she was born, she slid out slowly & peacefully in Mamas Arms and close to her heart, she looked me deeply in the eyes, then in my husbands eyes, as If she was thinking "Ah yes, that's them, i'm in the right place". She went Back to sleep and we started breastfeeding shortly after ✨🤍
This birth was way beyond anything i Had imagined for my "dream birth".
It was mother Nature herself rushing through me ~ what an honor, i thought 🙏🏻.
I am currently writing everything down in a free e-book:
My own birth 1987,
pregnancy with Freya,
and the Transition into being a Family, finding our new roles
and how the holistic yogic path was, is and Always will be my Most precious anchor in this Life
With so much graditude and Love from us to you ❤️...
Two weeks ago, my Birthkeeper Alex organised a Blessing Way Ritual for me and Baby 🤍
It is an ancient Ritual in a circle of women that supports the mother-to-be at the very last phase of pregnancy.
Carried by the Intention to bless the path towards motherhood, clearing his path from fears & doubts and strengthening the mothers trust into her body & Baby ~ it's Something i wish every pregnant Woman can experience 🌹.
When i got pregnant Last Summer, i already knew i wanted this Ritual ~ what i didnt know was where i'd be living & giving birth & who i'd invite, as I didnt know that many people in Portugal nor had we found a House yet.
Sitting in my OWN beautiful Home, surrounded by truly extraordinay women that all deeply inspire me, made me cry on the day of my blessing way.
I am grateful for the Universe always providing whatever we allow ourselves to receive 🙏🏻✨.
We all cried that day.
We all shed layers of expectations, core beliefs, responsibilities, emotional Walls and fears in a fire ritual.
We connected with Mama Cacao.
We moved. We laughted. We shared.
My Babybelly got a Mandala with all the Elements.
We ate the yummiest cake 😋.
Baby & I received so many Blessings, kind words, Inspiration, Gifts, Empowering wisdom, Support and endless Love ~
Thank you wonderful women who joined this sacred circle to honor my path, my unique approach towards pregnancy & birth. Thank you for Sharing your Energy with Baby & me. Thank you for being who you are and for truly showing yourself 💖 so much Love to you:
@empowering_photography (thank you also for capturing this sacredness 📷)
and to my Birthkeeper Alex, who is Not on Instagram and is Just an extraordinay women 🙏🏻
@thebakeryarrifana for the best carrotcake in the world
