1,5 years ago, I told the universe I want to walk international runways and create my own Yoga Retreats. This felt like a crazy and very distant reality. I was a medical student back then, living a completely different life, but I whispered this wish into the universe and came to achieve my dreams…
Though the path wasn’t clear, I just started walking. Along this way so many beautiful and rewarding things happened. The peak was the Balenciaga Show in Paris, where I could walk with Bella Hadid for Demna, the most influential high end fashion designer of today, which is just another world. The Rising Women Retreat equally beyond words, another world.
Now I am about to host my 4th retreat this year, the New Years Retreat at the feed of the Atlas Mountains. Let me explain to you why this retreat is from such an importance ✨
Since my young teenage years, I wondered each year before New Years Eve about how I would and should celebrate it… I have been through it all. Celebrating it with my family only, not at all, with friends playing games, a raclette dinner, celebrating it with my boyfriend (the question how to celebrate it didn’t get easier with this), booked a Sylvester Party in Hamburg that was sold out many weeks before, was overly expensive and actually just a weird party where people drank a lot of alcohol with the drink flat rate and a fire work at midnight. Did I want to do it again? There was always quite the pressure to make the end of the year special and memorable with an orientation anchored in status quo of the external world.
In the last two years, I found some very nice rituals to transition from one year to another, that sweetened my time a lot. Rituals with just myself in my room. After having created a beautiful altar with candles, stones, and crystals to shape a beautiful sacred atmosphere. Most importantly though was the inside work I have been doing. Shifting the focus from outside to the inside. I dedicated hours to reflect my whole year through meditation and journaling. Processing and realizing what I experienced, went through and achieved. Where there is potential to grow. What my soul needs now to evolve. Posing the right questions is very important. Allowing myself to really look at my life, my different life-areas with honesty, acknowledgment and openness enabled me to set the foundation of where I want to go next. It is more than a new years resolution. It is a powerful intention that I was setting for my next year, a promise for myself in a brighter sense. When 2020 ended and 2021 started, my big intention was to listen. To really listen. Listen to the signs of the universe around me, listen in the silence, listen to my inner voice, my intuition. Listen to the people around me in a way that I really start to hear, see and feel the other person in her and his core. I chose this intention because I realized that the years before I walked through my life in automatic ways, not really taking care of my environment, the people around me and myself. Not in an attentive, conscious way. It disturbed me that I was not really being present and attentive to the signs that were offered to me. So I decided to change. I am very happy, grateful and proud looking back knowing how much I became a listener of this world. Because I was silent and started to listen, my life changed. I was finally listening and following the calls. From a small life, where every day was the same, I was not challenged nor growing to a life in Portugal at the Ocean. A lot of inspiration. People I looked up to and learned from. Healing. From there I moved to Hamburg. Berlin. My doctor thesis. A conscious community. Becoming an international fashion model. Realizing my deepest desires. Detaching from outside expectations. Learning to trust and to be patient. Living in Paris. Traveling around Europe for work as a model. Creating and hosting my own Yoga Retreats in Morocco and on Sailing Trips in Greece. Guiding Women in their power. Sharing my medicine. Shared my love among the people wherever I go. Now living in London.
Every day has been different. I have been growing immensely inside me. One day felt like one week, one week felt like one month, one month like one year. When friends asked me what is new in my life it was impossible to answer. Career wise, romantic wise, money wise, family wise, in my inside and in my outside … Quantum jumps. So many beautiful changes, mind-blowing miracles, challenges that were very hard that I mastered. Wonderful, loving, inspiring people that entered my life. I know that I am a very lucky woman. I also know that all of this happened though because I attracted those people, opportunities and events. This is why the rituals with myself before the New Year were so important. What I visualised, I manifested by following my heart.
For many things it is hard to find the words, to describe what I felt. But what I can easily describe is that from 2020 (where I studied and worked next to my studies and had financial debts) to 2021, where I exponentially grew my income multiplied x10, and from 2021 to 2022 where I at least more than doubled my income. It is crazy for me to realize this and it makes me very proud because no one in the outside believed I could make money from the things I love, which appear so instabile to most. Money was never my main target, but seeing how my money grew with me growing in my mindset and heartset is beautifully rewarding and shows me that I can go on and trust.
My health: I didn’t take any Pharmaceutical drugs, no painkillers, didn’t get the booster, never got Corona and I am healthier than ever before in my body and mind, even though I am traveling most of the time and my body and mind were exposed to a lot of changes and stress factors in its environment. I am so fit and healthy, being in dialogue with my body, using a healthy and balanced life style with yoga, meditation, massages and nutritions that are well for me to keep me in that state.
Love life, family life and other deep connections: This is more of a private sector, but believe me, it is as crazy and beautiful as everything else in my life and my dreams are manifesting. Sometimes I think that nothing can top this next thing, and then something happens that blows off my mind again.
This life is my teacher. I am a student. I am listening very carefully. I am learning so much every day. And now I feel it is ready to share what I have learned. In form of the New Year Retreat I am showing you my strategies, I am sharing with you my mindset and heartset, I am enabling you in a safe surrounding to connect with yourself and prepare for a new life, a new reality that is ready to be created. I will guide you through Meditation, Yoga and other powerful tools, with asking the right questions and much more. Mother Nature will be all around you so you can deepen the process and reconnect with her.
Most important and the fundament of all of this is to learn to love oneself. To realize the connection of one self with everyone around. The divinity in us all. We are all one. Life is beautiful in unity.
This Retreat is an investment. What I have learned in the last years is that there is no better investment than in yourself and your growth. There is no money that will be enough to pay the gain of self-realization, self love and inner peace. I have learned that I deserve this. Instead of paying 1000 Euros for a phone or a bag, this is a beautiful present for your soul to find more to its truth.
More over from what I experienced money will flow to you multiple times back when you start walking this path.
The Universe is rewarding you in many forms and in many ways when you can accept it.
This is from me, for you. Whenever you are ready, I am here for you.
