The blank page

I need you to see the endless opportunities you have. I will always guide you and give you the messages you need to know, when you need to know them. There’s a book in the room, where your daughter is sleeping, where I can show you, what you need to think about. But you need to be in charge and make things happen. I cannot do that for you. I will guide you, never doubt that. You can do whatever you want. It will all work out. You’ll see. You don’t need to write a long post in order to get your message across.

The power of the butterfly part II

I know it’s late, but it will make you feel better. It will make you feel more at ease. Relieved. Reassured. Go and draw a card now, before you go to bed. I promise you, it will all work out. Saturday I found the purple butterfly, which is on today’s picture. My oldest daughter had placed it there. Sunday (whilst doing what seems like endless piles of laundry) I discovered the butterfly-sticker, which my youngest daughter had played with the other day. It had survived a trip in the washing machine and literately flew out of the machine, when I opened it. Continue reading “The power of the butterfly part II”

The power of the butterfly

You can not write anything this evening. You are too tired. You have spent the whole day looking after your youngest child, because she was not feeling well. And you have lots of things you have to do. Washing up. Laundry. Clearing up. I could feel, that my ego was very persistent. And then I realised that it’s the 11th today. I had to write! Continue reading “The power of the butterfly”


I was recently asked by a stranger on Instagram, how long it took me to trust my intuition. At first I had no idea what to answer. After having thought about it for a while I finally answered, this: Well that’s a good question. I have spend the majority of my life trying to fit in and be just like everyone else, which meant that I was mainly following my ego. But now I am trying to find the strength in being myself and I have discovered, that the best way to be me, is to follow and trust my intuition. Yet it’s an ongoing process.

Embrace the unknown

Please put this on, he said smiling. And these, he handed me some goggles. And these too. He smiled at me, as he gave me a pair of gloves. Gloves? Yes it can be rather cold up there, you’ll see. We all got in the tiny little plane. 3 first-timers and 3 instructors. As I sat inside, what seemed to be the smallest plane in the world, so small it was not possible to sit upright, I didn’t know what to expect. Would I be able to remember, what the instructor had told me? And then, just as the engine was turned on, a man came running towards the plane. Nope, sorry guys you can’t go now as the wind has changed. We will have to reschedule for first thing in the morning – weather permitting! Continue reading “Embrace the unknown”

Inside the heart

I didn’t write anything on my blog on Friday. I needed some time to think. Time to reflect. Time to try to understand, what had happened. Anger. Despair. Sad. Embarrassed. Let down. Frustrated. Disappointed. Deceived. Pain. Alone. I was feeling everything at the same time. Not knowing how to bounce back from all those emotions, I thought it better to be silent. And to say it like it is, I really just wanted to quit this whole intuition-thing and be done with it. And my blog. Today I still don’t have the answer on how to bounce back, but nevertheless I have decided not to be silent (at least for today). Life’s too short. Continue reading “Inside the heart”

You have to start somewhere

But it’s a cookbook? How is that going to work? Now you’re really confusing me. I opened the book. How is this recipe ever going to help me? I am this close to quitting, and now you want me to look at a cookbook? I closed the book in despair. I couldn’t help wandering, if I was really loosing it this time (or just really hungry). Look again, the intuition said. Reluctantly I opened it again on page 58, as guided. It’s part of “Starters and light meals”, so? Please look again. “A modern version of beans on toast” – really?
