Soul Talk: Birth without pain- Impossible?

A birth without fear or pain. Impossible! That is at least what I hear from everyone around me. “Pain that I have never had before”, “Agonizing”, “Painful”. All terms that fall into place. By chance I stumbled over “Hypnobirthing”.A hypnosis program that promises to gently accompany the women through the birth. At first glance very…

Soul Talk: Profession Doula – A Friend or a Servant?

It’s time. Suddenly we come to an age where baby swimming, our households and everyone’s wedding becomes our the topics of conversation. I think it’s actually called growing up. And yes, somehow I get to this age where I’m slowly thinking about it. And the more time passes, the more I observe and talk to…

Couchsurfing in Mexico? – Sure, why not?

Maybe it was youthful carelessness, maybe curiosity, truth is that my best friend and I decided to travel across Mexico for four weeks. Yes, two women all alone in Mexico. Why not? Probably the heart of all concerned mothers will now stop for a short moment. Especially because that’s not the whole story. The plan…

Thinkpiece: From The Fairy Tale of Fear

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.

Soul Talk: Find your Inner Path

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…

Thoughts: I’m naive and I’m fine with it.

I’m naive. Very much. I didn’t notice that before, because I could blame it on my age. There it was still justified. Childlike carelessness. “Yes well, she’s still 17, she’s still learning that,” they said at the time. Meanwhile I’m 27 and it hasn’t got any better. Their head shaking. Always the same. And then…

Thoughts: Ich bin naiv und das ist gut so

“Bei dem Wort Liebe fangen meine Augen an zu glühen.” Ich bin naiv. Sogar sehr. Früher ist das nicht so aufgefallen, da konnte ich das noch auf mein Alter schieben. Da war es noch gerechtfertigt. Kindlicher Leichtsinn halt. „Ja gut, sie ist ja noch 17, sie lernt das schon noch“, haben sie damals gesagt. Mittlerweile…

Thoughts: In the middle of nowhere – Why are we so lost?

But who is making all the decisions at the end of the day? “I don’t know what I want to do yet, not when, not how.” This is one of the most frequent sentences I’ve heard in Berlin when it comes to partnerships, work or life. “Maybe it’s better if we see where things go , what…

Fiction: Waiting

It was checkmate for me, like usual in two moves. And so they roll along the floor. The lonely figures. Until I pick them up, so I can lose again. We like to play unequal games. So I wait, wait until a miracle happens.
