Self-love. Now on everyone’s lips. But what exactly does that mean, to be in harmony with yourself and your body? Can one really make peace with one’s mind? Our interview guest Silja Janina M. is a bit closer to reach it. She is a yoga and meditation teacher and has found a bit more enlightenment with the help of the Kundalini teachings and her free spirit. We talked to Silja about Kundalini Yoga, healthy body and mind consciousness and nudity. Yes, you heard me!Continue reading “Soul Talk: Making Peace with Yourself”
We live in a society that always wants to be flawless. A society that can never be fully satisfied. We always want to improve ourselves, do more self-optimization, become sportier, happier and more fulfilled. It goes always higher, further, faster. Better. As soon as we reach our goal, it goes straight on.
Never enough. More success, more money, more happiness.
Oh, wow. How long we waited for the summer. How nice to see Berlin finally blossoming. Berlin can be very sad, lonely and lethargic in winter… Dragging our mood with it. To escape the cold there is only one solution: Go away from Berlin. Choose a country with beautiful beaches and high temperatures and go! Bye grey skies, hello sun!
We don’t want to think about the winter. God forbid! We would like to give you some warm thoughts from our last trip.
Maybe some of you have already noticed. Last month I had wanderlust and it drew me to Vietnam. Do you already know our article in which I write about my thoughts? I don’t want to deny it, life in Vietnam is definitely different. It is overwhelming. What I immediately noticed is that it’s not only different in its way, but also in its attitude. Our mission is, among other things, to bring a little light and sun into your day, so for you four reasons what we should absolutely copy from the Vietnamese.Continue reading “Thinkpiece: Values to follow”
Phobias: “A strong feeling of fear that occurs in certain situations or is triggered by the sight of certain things, and increasingly restricts the person affected.” At least that’s how Google describes it. Omniscient. As always. I’m still a long way from being that far. I still have no idea what to expect. One click and I open a list. 70 phobias, sorted alphabetically. Roughly scroll down. I am astonished, how many different ones there are. Fear of height, of depth, of noise, of one’s own reflection, of pain, of touch, of spiders, of numbers, of technology or even of men. Well, the latter three are absolutely comprehensible to me. We all have to deal with fears in our everyday lives. We can’t avoid it. Sometimes more, sometimes less, sometimes stronger or weaker. Part of our lives in a healthy environment. We receive signals to be attentive and careful in extraordinary situations. A basic instinct that tells us to protect ourselves from danger.Continue reading “Soul Talk: Hypnosis against Phobia?”
She can’t breathe. Trying to gasp for air. A rope is tied around her throat. She tries to free herself. With every breath she feels the narrowness. The pulse stops when he touches her. Millions of insects crawl, crawl and spread over her body. When he slowly strokes her shoulder, each of her limbs shrugs.Continue reading “Thinkpiece: From The Fairy Tale of Fear”
Transgender, Queer, Non Binary is a big topic right now. But actually it was always present, society was just not ready to talk about it before.
Do we really feel comfortable and right in our body since birth?
We meet Lotty. Lotty is a pensioner, transsexual and a woman for 16 years. The desire to be a woman was already present in her childhood but that was clearly not easy to realize. We meet her and quickly realize that both she and her story are very exciting.
Women. We are loving, courageous, strong and self-confident … At least that’s how we appear on the outside. But are we really? Or are they just masks that we wear every day? I know great women who are perfect inside and out. They seem strong, charming and courageous. But when we enter into soul talk mode, it comes to light what these women really think about themselves: “I have no talents”, “I’m too fat”, “I’m incapable of relationships”. These are the first lines Daniela Batista des Santos writes for a blog post for Im Gegenteil. Strong and true words. That makes it all the more important that we enter into a healthy dialogue with ourselves. Dani is a coach and the founder of the Circle of Wonderwomen in Hamburg. We talked with her to find out what do we need to have a healthy relationship with ourselves.Continue reading “Soul Talk: Find your Inner Path”
Interview with laura (alias). Text: MASHA
A toxic relationship is an unhealthy relationship that requires a lot of energy. I know it, I was in one. I met him in Paris, but he was from Berlin. After two months he invited me to move in with him. So we planned and organized everything together and I moved to him in the capital. Although we knew each other so little, everything felt so incredibly real and intense. His life impressed me, it was exciting and charming but at the same time chaotic and planned. He is a DJ and producer and therefore on the road every weekend.Continue reading “Soul Talk: Toxic danger – Lauras Story”
Funny how naive we were. We had dreams, goals, plans. We were so convinced of it. Do a trip around the world with the old VW bus. Only with a tent and a backpack. To be independent, to live freedom – for the day. To hitchhike when money is tight, set up a tent somewhere in nowhere. Both of us for eternity. So sure.
