Moon Report 3. December – 9. December 2018

The weekly Moon Report and this week we are finding ourselves in the depth of the last Quarter of the Moon “Dark Phase of the Moon”. This is certainly not an easy time but we can gain a lot of insights about ourselves and our hidden motivations.

Making the best of the Dark Phase of the Moon is probably that we allow ourselves to flow with it. Don’t take it too seriously, don’t try to make things happen but allow yourself to feel whatever is there.

We will be crawling out of this in depth reflection on the next New Moon which is the 7th of December 2018.

For all those who are struggling and you would like to gain more #insights or understanding about a certain topic or situation why not contact me for a #psychicreading?

1. Life Reading

I do offer 1-2-1 Life Readings in person, or via Skype/FB Messenger/phone/email. In these individual #psychicreadings I do focus on your personal energy. I will give insights on a situation that does bother you the most and in which you have problems in moving forward.

I will point out past circumstances that have led to the current situation and future potential. I do not predict the future and it is your personal responsibility and your free will to make necessary changes in your life.
I might suggest further #treatments or other things that will help you to change your energy regarding that situation. You have the chance to ask questions at any time.

My #psychicreadings are insightful, supportive and will leave you definitely with a positive outlook on your current situation. You might explore a situation from a totally new angle and a far deeper understanding.

 A Life Reading is 45min and you can ask questions at any time.

Moon Report 19. November – 26. November 2018

This weeks Moon Report will still focus on our healthy diet before we are entering the Full Moon in Taurus that will highlight areas around our physical body, possessions and money. Time to rest and relax and put your feet up. A Full Moon Ritual might be helpful to make the best of the powerful Full Moon and leads us to the Healing power of the moon.

I do offer 1-2-1 Healing Sessions in person and via distant. There are 2 different form of healing sessions are available and each of them has their own purpose.

1. Restoring the Balance Healing Session

In this session we are restoring the balance in your body, mind and spirit. A deep relaxing, calming session which will leave you energized and uplifted. For all those suffering from ongoing stress, fatigue, insomnia or nervous tension and overload of their nervous system.

2. Trauma Release Healing Session

This session mainly focuses on releasing old past trauma/experiences from your system. Often we even carry a lot of emotional and energetic stuff with us and wonder why we are ending up in the same situation again and again. Sometimes trauma can hold us back to live our full potential by putting fears, anxiety, depression and desperation on us. Together we are working to letting this go, so you can finally move forward into a new direction.

My clients all over the world will confirm that my healing sessions are powerful in person as well as via distant. So if you live far away, you can still access my sessions via distant. You will feel the difference!

How to manifest through Mercury Retrograde?

Today we are stepping into Mercury going Retrograde till the 11th of December (even the after phase will take a bit longer than that). This event marks something that is happening every year at least 3 or 4 times and generally nothing to worry about as such.

It doesn’t matter if you are into astrology or you don’t believe in something like that – you will feel the energetic shift. Allowing yourself to accept what Mercury Retrograde has to offer, will allow you to move more smoothly during this phase.

What is happening during Mercury Retrogade?

Generally speaking, Mercury does affect our “logical” brains in a way that we are asked to think twice because everything seems to be a bit diffuse. Mercury in Astrology is to be seen as the planet of every day-to-day expression and communication. When it goes Retrograde our ability to think logically, express ourselves openly and our overall communication might experience a slow down. Things we say might misunderstood by others and our logical minds are going into a more reflection mood. This phase is very important for our personal Soul-evolution, to take things more slowly and check in with ourselves what actually is going on. It means that we should not rush into new things, sign contracts before reading them five times and allow ourselves to reflect and dwell on things before making decisions. In addition to that technology might slow down or break down as well as there might be issues regarding travelling to expect. But keep in mind, what you send out will come back to you. So stay positive and think you will manage, no matter what.!!!

 The law of attraction

Of course most of us have heard of the law of attraction and many of us working with it as well. Some of us might have had good results and others might not. There are thousands of books out there regarding this subject and all of them do bear some truth. But not one of them will tell you the real truth ( at least I haven’t found it yet)

Yes, our thoughts do have the power to attract things into our lives. No matter of negative or positive. This kind of thinking is thought to be a spiritual thing and not much attention was given towards that from “not so spiritual” people but that is slowly changing. More and more, science is finding its way into exploring how thoughts actually create reality and also how things, we give enough mental energy to, suddenly willingly or unwillingly do manifest in our lives. I am sure of that, that soon Quantumphysics will find the answer to this.

We know that if we imagine or focus enough on a certain thing we desire – it eventually come into our lives. Thoughts are nothing more than electromagnetic information we continuously send out to the universe or the world. The more we put energy into our thoughts the more than likely they will eventually appear in some way or the other in our lives.

You can easily see this in your own life. Just think about what you actually truly believing about yourself and how the world around you will respond to this. For example if you don’t love yourself or respect yourself you will easily find people around you to do exactly this to you.They will disrespect you or bring you in situations that confirm what you thinking about yourself anyway.

Another example could be, if you truly believe that you deserve this or that, with no doubts, it suddenly appears in your life! So the more energy we put into our manifestation the more likely it is going to happen.

But there for sure there is a downfall to this and this is of course – ourselves. The power of our manifestation also very much depends on how we have mastered ourselves, not only mentally but also emotionally. If you want to manifest something and a few hours later you doubt it – you take away the energy you just put in.

In addition to that – how many times have you heard that you only need to think positive about something and it will happen. Have you ever tried to stay totally positive for even 2 days? Nearly impossible, as we are going through all sorts of emotions daily. Well there is more to it than just positive thinking to truly manifesting things into your life.

 The right timing for manifestation

It is manifesting at the right time! This will not only double your power but you also use the forces of the universe to fuel your manifestation.

I do work very close with the #mooncycle to choose right timing to manifest every day things into my life. The moon cycle shows us when its time to attract things into our lives and when to let them go. The law of manifestation is based on the law of magnetism, nothing less and nothing more.

The moon has powerful magnetic forces that are visible and tangible in the world. On a personal level but also on an environmental level (tides, the weather etc).

So generally speaking if you would like to manifest things in your life or attract them do it in the first quarter and second quarter of the moon – leading up to Full Moon.

After that you can use the moons power to release things you don’t want anymore.

 Mercury Retrograde and Manifestation

I explained before how important the power of our own minds is to manifest things and circumstances in our life. We need to learn to control our minds through meditation and other exercise if we want to get more powerful.

Now coming into Mercury Retrograde Phase we will have problems to concentrate and use our full potential with our minds.

To find a way around this and still making the law of manifestation work for us more easily, I do recommend to go into deep meditation. Once we mastered the connection to the higher self, we gain access to another plane. We raise above our logical mind and are coming into the spheres of the higher mind. This can mean that we don’t know actually what we are manifesting as such, or better say we don’t write the rules for our manifestation. In this we sink into a state of surrendering to the universe, asking and knowing it will provide what we do need at the moment without us interfering.

For some of us that can be a real challenge as we tend to control everything in our lives. But this is an amazing opportunity to connect to some higher wisdom we normally wouldn’t be able to reach so easily. We might also take this chance of mercury retrograde to exactly explore higher realms by leaving the logical, everyday mind aside.

picture of Mercury by wikipedia.com

It is okay if you struggle with this concept or if its new to you. The ancient wisdom has been hidden for a long time but we have reached a point where we no longer can deny the truth. We all got the ability to manifest, to create our own reality and shape life. But we need to make the effort, put the work in and especially learn to master ourselves to be able to work with the true laws of the universe!

How to find the right medium/psychic?

I have been a medium and healer myself for quite a few years now and I really do love my work. The best thing in my work is that I am able to assist and guide people with my psychic abilities and my spiritual knowledge. It is really rewarding to see how peoples lives have changed after a Reading or a Healing Session.

Not one day is the same and so are not any of my clients are the same, they come to me with different concerns, issues and problems. Unfortunately I also hear again and again about other people working in the psychic/medium field and they do more harm than good. This gives the work of a genuine medium/psychic or healer a really bad name and degrades our honest and hard work to a very low level.

I do believe the problem in the work as a medium/psychic is that there are no standards as such which qualify you as a good or bad medium/psychic. Everyone can call themselves a medium or psychic without even having enough experience, qualifications or done the work on themselves.

Over the years I was lucky enough to work with and learn from some very great mediums. People who have been in the field for many years and also who are working to a very high standard. I have seen them working on platform and also in One-to-One Sessions as well as their courses and workshops when I was their translator. During those times I did learn a lot about what it means to be a good medium/psychic and a lot about myself. I also had a lot of readings from all sorts of mediums/psychics some of them are very well-known and some of the readings were really disappointing and a total waste of time and money.

If I had known what I know now, it would have saved me a lot of bad advice, a lot of time as well as a lot of money.

Based on my personal years of experience working as medium/psychic and healer I created this guide for you. It will highlight a few points that you should ask yourself before looking for a medium or psychic. Other points can help you to check if you found the right medium/psychic for you, so you get most out of your reading.

Questions to ask yourself before you start looking for a medium/psychic:

Ask yourself honestly, why you want to see a medium or psychic? What is your motivation? Are you just curious or you experiencing a crisis in your life and you want some further advice? You might have lost a loved one and you know that some mediums are able to give proof of survival after death, which can be very reassuring.

The answer to the above questions will lead you closer to what you are looking for. If you experience a difficult situation in your life and want some advice of course you can go and see a psychic.
Psychics are more focused on working with your energy, the energy of your soul or akashic records.

A spiritual medium in its classic sense, delivers proof for life after death rather than focusing too much on your personal energy in that present moment. The focus of spiritualist mediums is to give evidence of your loved one from the spiritual world and then to bring you a message (in churches) that would assist you on your way.

Unfortunately many people or even working mediums/psychics are not aware of the difference between mediumship and psychic work. This is often caused due the lack of qualification and standard in their work and dependent on the teachers they have learnt from.

Working on a psychic level is a totally different energy than working on a mediumistic level, but both of them are equally important or worth.

There are mediums who will ask why you contacted them and its okay to say that you have a certain problem or question (but don’t name the problem or question) that is the mediums/psychic job to find out. But say it might has to do with your life or you are in need to speak to someone who has passed over into the spiritual world.

Do you want to see a medium/psychic in person or would you be okay to do a Skype session?

Many people do prefer to see a medium or psychic in person rather than a Skype session and there is nothing wrong with that. But our modern technology offers some amazing opportunities we should not miss out.

In general for the medium it doesn’t matter if you sit in front of them in real life or on the other side of a computer screen. Energy doesn’t have any limitations nor boundaries and a reading can be as good as in when you meet in person. I do a lot of Skype readings for people all over the world but also in person and never felt that it wouldn’t work better the one way or the other.

Furthermore I do believe that if we only focus on a medium who lives close by we do limit ourselves and our opportunities to find the right medium for us. There is maybe a medium in Australia you really feel drawn to but you are based in Germany, so why not try a Skype session?

There are also areas around the world where there maybe not many mediums around, especially in some countries where mediums not really common. It doesn’t mean that you should limit yourself rather than opening up to new opportunities.

Hunting for the right medium/psychic

So here we go, you clarified what you expect from a reading if you are looking for a reading about yourself which is then psychic (Life Reading, Akashic Records Reading, Psychic Reading, Soul Reading).

Or you are looking to gain some proof for life after death and needed to hear from a loved one in the spirit world that would be a mediumistic reading. Now you can go out and look for the right medium for you.

1. Ask your friends for recommendations

Best and easiest way is to ask your friends if anybody has ever been to a medium/psychic and could recommend someone. Recommendations are direct experiences and always good to start with. But keeping in mind that not every medium/psychic resonates with the same person. It might was good for your friend but you think it is not the right medium/psychic for you. Trust that feeling and keep on looking.

2. Check the mediums/psychic website

Its important to do some research and best for that is online. You can use google for the start and type in medium/psychic whether in your area or somewhere else. Check out the websites you find and see if it resonates with you.

a) Does the mediums/psychics picture appeal to you?

b) Are there any testimonials or reviews on the website?

c) Does the medium/psychic explain the way it works or does it only talk about

itself and how great he/she is?

d) Are there any contact details to get in touch with the medium/psychic before

booking a reading?

e) Does the way the medium/psychic present itself resonate with you? Or is it

too spaced out?

3. Check the pricing

Often the websites don’t give away a lot of information on the pricing and that is totally fine. It often can mean that the medium/psychic only works with committed people who actually make the effort to contact them.
Or the medium/psychic wants to decide if she/he can work with you after speaking to you. It allows time to get to know each other before a session gets booked.

Unfortunately there is no real guidelines with the pricing, some really expensive mediums are totally crap and some others very good mediums don’t charge a lot. So you can’t say that expensive is always good or cheap is always bad.

Most of the well-known mediums just got a good marketing company but it doesn’t mean that they do extraordinary work. On the other hand side I truly believe that being a genuine medium/psychic is a very valuable work and hard work but many people don’t see it as such.

If you want quality and you set your intentions towards it, I am sure you will be guided the right way.

4. Getting in touch with your medium/psychic

Once you made a decision and you found a medium/psychic of you choice its time to contact them. Do yourself and the medium a favour and have your questions at hand if you got any. So much time is wasted and emails been sent from people to us psychic/mediums with loads of unnecessary questions, pictures and asking for free readings.

Working in this field can sometimes be a bit tricky because people have all sorts of ideas about mediums/psychics.

A genuine medium/psychic will happily answer your questions when you make contact and will help to clarify your concerns if you have any.

If you don’t feel that is the case than you might not with the right medium/psychic then.

Once you happy with your first contact you can go ahead in booking a session via Skype or in person. Keeping in mind that mediums/psychics do this work for their living not for fun, means that you should keep the appointment you arranged or if you have to cancel as early as possible.

Some mediums ask for a deposit upfront as a sign of commitment for the appointment. Ask for their cancellation policy just to make sure you understood everything alright.

5. Be honest

It can happen during a reading that the medium might not picking up on your question or greatest desire. It is important to tell the medium that you are not happy with the reading within the first 10min of your reading. It gives the medium/psychic time to tune into you/or the spiritual world again to see what else is there to talk about.

You should be allowed to ask questions at any time and also keeping in mind that sometimes we hear things that we needed to hear but we don’t want to hear. This can be part of the reading as well. But most important, do speak up if you feel the reading is not for you or its going the wrong way!!!

In general just keep in mind the universal law of like attracts like. If you do your research with the right intentions I am sure you will find the right medium for you.

Julie Jurgan – Medium – Healer – Soulactivist

Looking back after all these years of training, learning, studying and working as a medium and healer I know that I found my purpose. This is what I came here to do and even from an early age I was aware of my gifts but not sure how to use them. Born and raised in Germany, my mother a homeopath and my dad a business manager I found myself torn between my occupation and my calling. I already used my first tarot cards when I was 12 years and did “fun” readings for my friends but never thought that I was really gifted in that way. As much as my parents tried to give me a solid foundation in life and asked me to learn a proper job I soon found out that being a visual merchandiser wouldn’t make me happy at all.

I had to follow my own path and find out what my purpose here on earth was. When I was 18 I started travelling the world and meeting people I wouldn’t have met if I would have stayed where I grew up. It took me nearly seven years of searching, travelling and doubting my path till I reached the Arthur Findlay College. It was there where I started my medium & healing education on a serious level when I turned 27 which was in 2011.

Since 2014 I live permanently in the UK.

Medium Education:

Since then I learnt as much as I could possible gain from many different teachers at the Arthur Findlay College, many of them very well-known and acknowledged mediums and healers. I learnt from people like Paul Jacobs, John Johnson, Andy Byng, Stella Upton, Kitty Wood, Jacky Wright, Biaggio Tropeano, Lynn Parker.

In 2015 I finished my Mentorship program with certified “Medium of Excellence” from Tony Stockwell.

I studied Spiritualism with the Spiritualist National Union from 2012 – 2015 to give me a good foundation and knowledge about the origins and phenomena of Spiritualism.

How I learnt to hold myself through difficult times

I always felt drawn to Buddhism but I really started to understand the philosophy when I went to stay for a Buddhist meditation retreat.

I wasn’t intended to go on a Buddhist meditation retreat and I thought that I would be alright with my meditation practice. But then life happened and I fell from a place where I thought that my life was quite okay into a deep depression through the unexpected death of two of my friends. Finding myself in a space in which everything was dark and cold, lonely and only my tears were my constant companion.

Thinking of my self as spiritually evolved I soon realized that there is nothing to protect us from the painful experience of the loss of a loved one. For the first few days I was even unable to talk to anyone. I locked myself away into my room, lying on my bed, crying, shouting, screaming, crumbling in pain, constantly asking why?

pinterest.com

Friends tried to reach out to me saying that everything is going to be alright. And as much as I love my friends but in this moment it wasn’t the right thing to say. Because just in this moment nothing was okay and I don’t wanted to think of a future that surely would be without my friends who have passed over.

sadrunner.com

I tried to meditate, as people say it could ease pain and help with depression. I tried to do yoga as people say it helps with everything that needs to be released from our emotional body. Then I stopped meditating and I stopped doing yoga. I don’t wanted to let go and furthermore the pain was all my friends left me with, in this moment. Somehow I felt it was the only thing for me to hold on to.

There were days, when my chest burnt like fire. I could feel the pull to follow my friends to the other side, how awful was life to leave us like this. Why do we have to die? Why is this process of separation so painful?

mobieg.co.za

In this moment my life just stopped being the way it was. All my business driven attitude, the thinking and planning about the future and the creation of castle in the sky disappeared in seconds and never returned. I felt as if I was a permanent resident in hell and no way was there to get me out of it. I smoked as much as I could, didn’t go to work any more and started drinking again just to escape the painful truth of our temporary existence.

In this moment I didn’t realize that I was closer to the Buddhist truth than ever before. And I also didn’t know that this experience should lead to something I can rarely explain, but it changed my whole life forever. The loss of my friends pushed me into the stay at a Buddhist retreat centre and there I should learn what pain can teaches us and how I can hold myself in difficult times. Buddha says it already, that there is no one coming to rescue you – you have to do it all by yourself.

huffingtonpost.com

And I did. Nearly 1.5 years later my meditation has changed, it is deeper, it is purer and I broke away from the idea what meditation should be.

I am not scared of the painful truth any more and I came to the acceptance that life implies death. I understand that life is suffering and the only way we can come to terms with it is, to feel it and to let it in. Running away through addictive behaviour will never ever set you free.

But the most important thing I learnt during my stay in the Buddhist retreat centre was, what love and kindness can do when they not only been given to others but to ourselves. Since then the Buddhist Philosophy has become a very important part of my daily life. It gave me a deeper understanding about life and death but also about myself.

I don’t call myself a Buddhist, nor any other religious member. But I can say that Buddhism helped through some very difficulty times and it gave me a strength and understanding that I never experienced before.

Inspired and transformed by my personal experience with Buddhist Philosophy I now organize One-Day Bus Trips to Sam-ye Ling in Scotland, a Tibetan Buddhist Centre beautifully settle in the hills of Scotland.

Our next trip is to Sam-ye Ling is on the 16th of July 2017 and we have a few places left. We will set of at Saltburn Square at 7am and will be return around 8pm.

The Moon Wisdom Day Retreat in Saltburn

The moon is a loyal companion. It never leaves.
Its always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do.
Every day it’s a different version of itself.
Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light.
The moon understands what it means to be human.
Uncertain.
Alone.
Cratered by imperfections.
– Tahereh Mafi –

 

The moon has a powerful influence on our everyday lives. Without the moon there would be no life on earth as we know it. She moves the oceans, influences the weather and we can find the moons movements in our moods, our bodies and in our souls.

For thousand of years people did know about the power of the moon. These people were aware about the hidden forces any living organism is affected by. They observed the moons orbit around the earth and its changing influence when she wanders through the zodiac. There were times where the moon brought great harvest and others when she brought unpleasant changes.

Year after year these people wrote down their observation of the moon cycles and the happenings in the environment but also the changes that occur in humans and animals.

These people knew that the moon had a power they could use for their advantage, so they started forming a calendar in which they predicted certain things in advance.

Over the years this wisdom slowly but steady got lost. The more humans disconnected with nature the more they refused to look in the sky to find the answers for troubles that had in their lives. Slowly but steady they forgot about their belonging to nature. In our modern times where technology became a true invasion into our lives, we suffer more than ever before. Mental illness, cancer, electromagnetic pollution and many other forms of modern disease which we haven’t found a cure yet. We have lost our connection to nature, we lost our connection to the power that resides within ourselves. More and more we are heading into a dangerous zone of unnatural living, not realizing how many illness or disease have been caused because people fell out of their natural living cycle.

Time to change – time to return to our true power

It is time to change that. It is time to return to the wisdom of the ancient teachings. It is time to treat illness as what it is – an imbalance of body, mind and spirit. It is time to empower ourselves with the deep wisdom and knowledge that lives in all of us. It is time to become aware that magic is not only a word but a superpower we can gain. It is time to take responsibility and return to what nearly has been forgotten. The infinite Wisdom of the Moon.

And you can join us.

The Wisdom of the Moon Retreat is coming to Saltburn.

It is open to everyone who would like to learn more about the power and magic of the moon and its cycles. It will be a mix of Yoga, Meditation, Moon Astrology as well as Tarot Card Readings. We will learn about the Healing Powers of the Moon and the manifestation powers of its cycles. The reading of tarot cards will help you to access your inner wisdom and help you to gain guidance in your life.

Introduction to the Mystical Powers of the Moon

On its orbit around the earth, the moon takes approx. 28.5 days and travels through a four part main cycle. You will learn the mystical powers of each cycle and how you can apply these powers in your every day life. Here we find the secret of the manifestation powers of the moon and Yoga will be applied to help us with this.

Introduction to the Healing Powers of the Moon

While the moon travels through its cycles she also passes through the whole of the zodiac. In this part of our moon retreat we do focus on the Healing aspects of the moon. Every zodiac sign brings different energetic qualities to earth when passed by the moon and its gravitational/magnetic forces. This leads to a higher sensitivity of certain body parts but also to amazing healing potential. We will explore this in our Moon Retreat.

Cleansing Ritual

We will finish the day off with a cleansing ritual to release all the energy we no longer need and make space for the new to come in.

At the end of the day you will haved gained a complete tool kit to understanding the moon cycles and its powers. You will have learnt how the moon can help you in healing yourself and others. Yoga practices that keep you aligned with the universal forces and you will have learnt to trust more in your own inner guidance with the help of tarot cards.

Our Moon Wisdom Retreat will happen on the 29th of September 2018 from 10am – 4pm, this is a very special date because on this day its been said that there is a Moon pause. Which means astrologically that the moon does not conjunct or square any other planets in the sky. Therefore her wisdom shines bright and clear to earth without any interruption of other planets. A powerful day to access the moon and its wisdom in its purest form. Spaces are limited.

No one is born Self Confident

As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.”

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

No on is born Self-Confident even some people tend to believe that. As if self-confidence is a gift that was given to a few by birth and others have to work hard for it, some of us even a life time. This believe is a myth and has created a lot of confusion and misunderstanding within our personal expression of ourselves.

After years of self-development and also walking and exploring the spiritual path, I honestly can say: No one was born Self-Confident furthermore that the growth of self -confidence has different stages we go through. There are internal and external factors that do play a very important role in building self-confidence by understanding this we gain a lot of insights and can change accordingly.

google.com

There are many studies and even more opinions about the subject of self-confidence and many of them teach us a totally wrong picture what it actually is.

The concept of self-confidence is commonly used as self-assurance in one’s personal judgement, ability, power, etc. One increases self-confidence from experiences of having mastered particular activities. It is a positive belief that in the future one can generally accomplish what one wishes to do. Self-confidence is not the same as self-esteem, which is an evaluation of one’s own worth, whereas self-confidence is more specifically trust in one’s ability to achieve some goal…” – Wikipedia 2018

google.com

I wonder how many people do truly know what self-confidence is, how many of us do still believe the media’s opinion that confidence can only increase if we buy this or that. Only if we possess certain things or follow a certain method we will finally gain self-confidence and can achieve anything we want in life.

Internal and external factors that shape Self-confidence

There are many different factors which play an important role in building self-confidence early in our lives. Most important probably will be our parents and how much they encouraged, supported and loved us. This relationship is the foundation for the rest of our lives and determines very much on how we see ourselves. The more we grow up the more we come in touch with other external factors such as teachers and other children at school. The teachers opinion about our performance in school has a huge impact on our self-confidence and can break us. In that period of time we also confronted with media’s idea about our self-image and especially as a teenager we are so vulnerable to the opinions of others. These early external factors play an important role in our person development of self-confidence and can have an impact we will feel a life time. Unless we become conscious and aware enough or shall I say brave enough to heal and break through childhood or early teenage trauma.

The role of our parents towards Self-confidence

While we are children, we are totally dependent on our parents and what they make us belief about ourselves. Some people say that children have developed a sense of self-esteem by the age of 5. Dependent on our parents and how much they supported us during the early ages we will grow rich or poor in self-confidence. If rejection, abuse or the inability to express love towards children has taken place, the child will suffer a lot more than other children. In addition to that its not only what our parents do think about us but also what the parents do think about themselves. How can a parent give a good idea of self-confidence if its not present within themselves? The parents inability to love themselves or being proud of their own achievements will also be reflected towards the child. Especially that happens if the child in its innocent nature strives to be better and learn new things. If the parents then hold on to their own lack of self-confidence it doesn’t allow the child to make new experiences that help him/her grow. This is often how problems and belief systems are passed down from one generation to the other, to the point where one family member finally breaks free by seeking actively help regarding these problems.

Performance and the fail of the education system to offer true support

Performance is everything, parents are still believing that only if a child performs good in school it will make it in life. Teachers thinking the same, but for them it is more important if the child does perform good in a certain subject. Because for the teacher it is a sign that he/she is doing the right job. I wonder how many teacher actually do ask themselves if what they teach is actually needed in life? In addition to that I want to raise the question how many children nearly break under the expectations of parents and teachers to perform rather than be themselves? We still do believe only if we achieve something with the highest scores it would build up our self-confidence, this is only half true.

hindustiantimes.com

Yes, achievement has something to do with building self-confidence but it can be an achievement in anything. Something we do like, something we do have a passion for, something we set our minds to and we achieved it with our own two hands or with support of others.

In schools and education the achievement mostly includes to repeat what has been said or to achieve the highest mark so we are able to get a better job in the future. As statistics have shown how many world class students are still out of work. On the other hand side how many famous or successful people are truly depressed?

It is a myth and we still go for the idea that happiness is found on the outside, based on this believe we run around a life time, continuously asking ourselves when it will finally come. The day we achieved to be content and at ease with ourselves?

Real Self-Confidence comes from within

Let me say again, self-confidence is not something we are born with but something that we gain throughout life. It is very important to understand the difference, furthermore it will help to build a solid foundation on which self-confidence finally can grow.

From a spiritual perspective the problem arises already with our birth. The moment when the spirit incarnates into a physical body and sets itself the challenge to experience the world through the eyes of its own. From the moment we are born we are totally dependant on our parents, or at least on our mothers. We need to be fed, looked after and told how to do things. Dependant on our parents this can be a tricky path and very much is up to them what they think is really important to us. But also what they think about themselves. Then we are forced into an education system that makes us believe that our performance on how to repeat what is told will get us what we need in life. Unable to understand ourselves, the world around us we do suffer from an early age from an alienation what life is really about.

rrrtv.me

Its not about how good you perform in life but what you gain from life. How good you learn to express yourself in many different ways in this life time. How brave you are to truly explore and be who you are. Furthermore how capable you are to deal with life difficulties without losing the belief in yourself. This often is not taught to us by our parents or in school. Media and news do as well fail in building a strong foundation for people to understand life of what it truly is.

In the last instance many people turn to spirituality around the age of mid 40’s. When we have lived through some difficulties in life, we might gone through childbirth, marriage, divorce, experienced loss, and death in one way or the other, we made it in a job or even lost it once. We suddenly realize that all this somehow made us stronger and more experienced at the same time we do feel more vulnerable. Feeling that life can hit you very unexpected and nothing much you can do about it. One day we are self-confident and we think we can achieve anything the next moment this conviction is gone with the wind. All that is left is the question what is next? And how we are going do deal with it?

Self-confidence is a process from self-exploration and experiences, how we deal with them and how open we are to change? Some people are maybe born with a stronger will to live, some people got a thicker skin than others. A few people know that they asking for assistance or help to deal with certain circumstances is not a crime but very necessary to outgrow old belief systems about the self. Others might turned bitter and given up on life. In all of us there is the potential for greatness and it is up to us what we are going to make of it.

How much can we accept that life is full of unexpected changes? How far can we push ourselves to strive to new heights? Can we forgive ourselves and others for making mistakes? When do we realize that self-confidence is not something that we are born with but something that needs to be trained, brought back into life once it was lost and maybe restored when it has been broken. Understanding what role our parents, teachers, others, the media and society played in shaping the belief in ourselves. It is a slowly process of getting to know yourself better, day by day. Sorting out what you want and what you don’t want, allowing your limitations and dreams to guide you. Realizing a setback is not the end and every day we got the chance to start all over again.
