Altered View


 

  You may cry over the broken bones and the lost lives.

You may feel anger towards those whom steal.

But if you can love the creatures that roam upon the earth,

love the warm arms that held you close.

If you can feel complete tranquility of the first snow fall of winter.

If you love the sight of dust particles floating in the ray of sun.

If you smile at the person in the mirror.

If you feel a sense of peace when the birds sing into your ears.

If you feel whole when your bare feet meet the earth.

If you are amazed by the breath you can see when the frost has covered the grass.

If you feel overwhelming gratitude towards your being and all of which surrounds you,

you are the happiest you could ever be.

There is not a cent more that you need to weigh you down because happiness begins when realization meets simplicity and the eyes no longer view dollar signs as value,

but rather valuing each moment makes you the wealthiest person alive.

I AM MORE - YOU ARE NOT THIS BODY


MY Body is my Home. But I AM NOT THIS BODY. 

8e1993_3b77e080e85244eda2faff6ef923e45a~mv2.jpg

 

I am not this body. 

I am so much more. 

And so.. Are You! 

 

When I was in Corsica, I took some major steps towards all of the realizations I am going to talk about now. 

I realised.. I am not this body. 

My, and your, body is the home of a soul. 

It is the vehicle for you to wander through  this life. 

It is the magical tool to let your soul experience smells, sounds, colours, touches etc.. 

But you are not your body. 

I say it again.. YOU ARE SO MUCH MORE.

 

It is nearly sad how it took me 20 years to start honestly freeing myself from the thinking that I am this skin. 

That my face is me. That all that matters and that  I have got on this planet are these forms and physicalities. 

Wow.. and then I realized how wrong I was. 

My body is the temple of my soul. And so are yours. 

Inside this magically functioning cave of small particles, wich  perfectly found together, sits this endless and glowing soul which cant be defined by labels. 

 

Our focus is so manipulated by too many things. Our brain is so twisted and focused on the things we can see but… Do you really only want to be this body, when you can be so much more? 

Do I want to be only this body ? 

 

When I  started realizing that ME is not what I can see in the mirror. That my worth has nothing to do with my weight. That my beauty is not measurable by societies standarts. 

I am the light inside my soul, the small sparkles the universe gave to me. 

My worth is not countable, because it is unquestionable. 

I am beautiful, because I decide to be. 

And then…. The second you realize.. pressure drops from your shoulders and your prison not longer holds you back. 

 

For way too long I suppressed my inner light. I was so caught up in „serving" only this physical image and only pushing more and more and more to somehow maintain what I thought defined my worth. 

I caged this beautiful little girl inside myself in a dark place. There was no space for weakness. 

There was no space for diversity. 

There was no energy for creativity. 

There was no room to test who I want to be. I did so much harm on my soul. I didn’t realize how my eyes weren't shining and all this LOVE I carry in my heart couldn't find its way in this world, because I was too obsessed curving and shaping my body into these unrealistic shapes and states. 

I nearly sacrificed my health. (to be specific I completely messed up my digestive system and I lost my period for over two years)

I knew something was wrong. I knew this wasn't right and this wasn't sustainable. But I was too scared to chose my health, to chose healing and giving my body what it needed.

Why? Because I really believed that this body is me. I truly believed in what society tells us day by day. 

That all we have to offer to this world is only this little of a body. I lost (and lose) myself in what society tells us everyday, I get caught up in glittering worlds of social media. But all of that is not real. It is not real. I was wrong.  

Ooh GIRL. I was wrong.. 

Now when I started to chose…..

START LIVING YOUR PURPOSE


Hello. I want to tell you...

living your purpose .jpg

 

I wholeheartedly believe that every single creature on this earth got offered this life for a reason. 

I believe that me, you and everyone else out there is here for a specific task or lesson. 

I believe that everyone is worth the best and has the birthright to be happy and free. 

But sadly, every single day I witness people giving away their potential, pushing themselves down, losing themselves or drowning their inner drive and light, because they let fear, doubts and negative feelings take over their life and control their ability to live their passions, dreams and strenghts. 

They decide to cancel their dreams and work against their true self, because someone told them to, because our minds got programmed and structured to think a certain way, to only believe in one reality and be controlled by society's standards of fear and uncertainty.  We become victims of our own mind structures because we stop questioning what we are told and only believe in this one way of receiving the world. 

At some point in life, most of us end up at the same point we have seen many people reach before. (Our parents, our friends, our bosses, siblings, enemies?) 

And guess what, all of us promised ourself to never end up there. 

Nobody ever wanted to end up there but well… at the end, most do - Why?


Well... Can you expect different things to happen when all you do is the same as  before? 

Can you expect people to stop war, when we teach our children that they get punished when they don't work the way we want them to? Or when we can't even reflect that the discomfort we feel in arguments is only our own insecurities being tackled when someone isn't sharing the same opinion as we do? 

Can we expect people to love each other when we can't even find empathy towards our so innocent fellow animals? 

Can you expect ending up on the streets of London when you only ever take the same train which to your small, safe neighborhood town? 

Can you expect not to end up like your neighbors or parents or whoever, who are miserable, when you follow what they do ?  

 

The only way to get somewhere you have never been before, is to do something you have never done before. 

 

For certain, one of my biggest fears in life always was to waste the incredible precious time here on earth which I got gifted with.

For that I got thinking from a young age… I got thinking:

How can I make my dreams become reality ?

And how am I going to end up being the most happy and fulfilled I can possibly be? 

 

There is a lot of ways to take this road, step by step. 

Let me tell you, it is the more exhausting, hard, sometimes frustrating, pretty scary, but also most happy, authentic and rewarding way of life (for me) I have ever heard of and could ever imagine! It is so worth it. 

I am blessed with a really special family and an amazing group of friends, who help me to push myself every single day.

I don't take any of that for granted and I understand that for others it might be not as easy to say to people: 

"Fuck it ! I am going to change everything! I am going to quit this boring job. I am going to move country. I am going to chase my dreams whatever it costs.“, when they haven’t had support or a reflected and free upbringing.

But thats ok. We all struggle with things. We all have our story to cary, but thats not an excuse. 

You are NOT a victim of your story, of your life,your parents, your past… when you don't condemn yourself to being one.  

Of course it is easy to be a victim, to not take responsibility for your life and everything else that has been happening within you, around you and has been brought to this world through you. Of course it is comfortable to feel sorry for yourself and pass on the responsibility to someone else for your feelings and actions, but don’t expect yourself going anywhere with that. Yeah, and that is exactly what I am talking about. 

 

Don’t waste your talents, passions, strengths etc. by being passive and not taking charge of your life! 

You freaking only have this one!  

If you need help, or support - let me be your friend. 

Write to me if you want, tell me what you are struggling with. (Insta message @PaulinelaPetite // pauline2010@gmx.de) 

I am not going to judge but to support you, and experience with you together what it means to actually live life. 

But please, go out there and make this life yours!

Own your life! 

Own your body! 

Own your voice ! 

Own your passions! 

Own your love, hobbies, crazy thoughts, compassion and individuality. 

 

I am so flipping fed up with seeing incredible people, infinite loving hearts, smart brains and huge talents just being wasted! 

Just being covered up and lost in structures, negative energy, unreal fears and this certain understanding of “safety". 

There always is a risk to take, but no one ever experienced…………

LETTER TO MYSELF


20170522150430249_0001.jpg

Foreword:

This letter is an insight into my personal journey of forgiving myself and learning to truly love the soul that is living inside my human suit. I am sharing this with you to inspire you, write a letter to yourself and forgive the most important person in your life - you.

A special friend told me some month ago when I was spilling my heart to him that I have to forgive myself. I need to forgive every person, but especially myself to truly find love and acceptance. 

I never doubted his words but it took me some more months to actually be able to forgive myself. 

But some days ago, I wrote this letter to myself. Sitting in the forest all by myself feeling so blessed and calm. 

I could say I forgive you and I love you to myself for the first time in my life, meaning it, and it was one of the most beautiful and releasing moments ever. I am incredibly blessed by a really special group of friends and an amazing family who pushes and guides me, I hope to be your friend and your family by sharing.

This letter is extremely personal and I know I make myself incredibly vulnerable sharing this. But my experience on this blog with all of you has been so deeply loving and caring that I have no fear and I really hope and want to help anyone out there to forgive themselves and make themselves free from all the pain and punishment. 

You have the birthright to be happy. 

You have the birthright to be free. 




Letter to myself : 

Dear you, 

Dear beautiful young woman, lost little girl and loved creature of this planet. 

I just wanted you to know... 

I forgive you and I love you. 

I forgive you for suppressing your true light for many years. 

I forgive you for being so filled and blinded by fear and doubts that you were never able to see your true beauty.

I forgive you for losing yourself in the external world and hurting yourself over and over and over again, by running after shallow sources of validation because you were too trapped to see this divine woman in yourself. 

I forgive you for hating your looks. 

I forgive you for all the harsh words you were saying to yourself.

I forgive you for all the punishments you were giving yourself. 

I forgive you for suppressing your feminine energy, for working against your true inner self and for pretending you were somebody you were not. 

I forgive you for pushing away people you love because of your numbness fed by fear. 

I forgive you for caging yourself away from love because fear was eating you up from the inside and you couldn’t let go of control. 

I forgive you, my girl. 

I forgive you for everything. 

Thank you. 

I LOVE YOU 

I love you for…..
