Simple hacks for productivity

If you’re anything like me – a multi-passionate woman full of ideas – then you might feel overwhelmed and often procrastinate. The thing is when you have so many ideas and big projects in mind, many times you have no idea where to start! It can be overwhelming!

I’ve always been creative and always had big dreams but many times the size of my dreams blocked me from achieving them. So I was looking for a solution on how to stop procrastinating and get stuff done!

So here is what I came up with and this works for me.


In order to get moving I needed to break it down to TINY steps. And I mean super tiny! For example, if I need to set up a website, I would literally have to start with listing the topics I wanted to cover and creating a structure. Or if I wanted to created a video, I would literally have to start with writing a simple outline.


When you have tiny steps to take they don’t seem overwhelming, but by doing them you’ll start doing more and get a lot done!

These steps are known as MITs (Most Important Tasks), but I renamed them into Magically Inspired Actions! ūüôā


Yes, on a post-it! It’s super simple and easy. No time management programs or planners.


Write 3 actions of choice on 3 post-its and stick them on the wall in front of you. These are your MIAs for today! If you choose to do more, fabulous! You probably will because these are so tiny you will feel a bit funny stopping there. But it will help you get started!

When you complete your tasks – take those post-its down. I swear you’ll love the feeling of holding those post-its and KNOWING you got stuff done! For real!


These tiny actions should take up to 15 minutes max! However I have found the Tomato timer work wonders! I set the timer for 25 minutes and focus on one thing only! YES, ONE THING ONLY!

I know it’s difficult, as we’re so used to multi-tasking, but trust me – you will increase productivity immensely if you do this. Chunk your actions into small steps and time it. You’ll be more focused, get things done, and won’t feel overwhelmed!



Yup, you need to schedule fun. Seriously. Many times we get into our work and forget to have fun. I literally schedule fun stuff and set a timer to remind me. It’s important to reward yourself for all the hard work you’ve done! You’ll feel great and more motivated to get started again tomorrow!

Hope this helps!

Behind the confidence hides…a shy little girl

Maja-zadarYup, this is me. In a town where I was born. In Croatia. 
As you see, I was a cute little girl so you can imagine I got a lot of attention. Lucky me? Uhm…no.
To me – that was the worst thing in the world…

Most people wouldn’t believe it but I was always a really shy child, completely overwhelmed by attention I was getting. At the time I didn’t realize, nor did anyone else, that I was also a High Sensitive Person. Today I know what it is, but I’ve had years of struggle because of it. I FEEL EVERYTHING. And yes, it’s overwhelming. And yes, attention bothers me. Honestly, I feel most comfortable in my little shelter protected from the world. I avoid crowds because they’re overwhelming. I crave solitude and space to process my emotions and everything I feel. I need time to regenerate.

Not many people get that. And as I said – I was super shy! I couldn’t even STAND in front of people, let alone SPEAK to them! I would kick, scream, cry and – escape as soon as possible.

I’ve been judged and misunderstood for being sensitive so many times I can’t even tell you. I thought something was wrong with me. So you can imagine how low my self-confidence was. I didn’t believe I could do anything I wanted. And I loved to sing, dance, perform – and make people smile. Imagine that! I grew up in a family of actors so this was absolutely normal. But for me it was terrifying, yet I was always drawn to that. I guess I have some artistic genes that couldn’t resist.

So one day I decided to face my fear. I went to an improv class in the Zagreb Youth Theater. I was completely freaking out as I was making my way there. I remember it, as if it were yesterday! STILL! And this was over 20 years ago! I kept thinking – “What am I doing?? Am I completely crazy?? I will make a fool of myself in front of all this people! I can’t do this…I can’t do this…I CAN’T !!!”


I thought to myself – “NO. I CAN’T GIVE UP WITHOUT EVEN TRYING.”

I knew I would regret it. I had to try. I was so curious of what would happen! I figured, there are two options:

  1. I hate it and make a fool of myself. I leave the class and never come back. I don’t know these people so I don’t really care.
  2. I love it and discover something new! I finally get to do what I love and stop being afraid.
So I decided to go for it. And you know what?
I LOVED IT!!! It was amazing! And mind you, I DID MAKE A FOOL OF MYSELF! Haha ūüôā And it was great! We laughed. That was it. It was funny! Nothing scary. The world was still turning. Nothing changed. Except I pushed my limit a bit further. That was different. Up to date, this has remained my motto – Don’t give up before even trying!Since then I kept going for my dreams and faced my fear over and over again. I am STILL FACING MY FEAR and getting out of my comfort zone. You know why? Because it’s WORTH IT. If it allows you to follow your passion and live the life you desire, you gotta do it!All this helped me build my confidence and follow my heart’s desire. Being confident and trusting that you CAN do whatever you want makes you UNSTOPPABLE! It makes you a powerful manifester!Being confident has allowed me to:

  • Become a successful jazz vocalist in my country (singing in front of people was a BIG FEAR, remember??)
  • All my jobs were about me standing in front of people – a teacher, a tourist guide, a translator, an actress, a singer, a facilitator…and I loved it!
  • I performed in front of thousands of people and on LIVE national TV!
  • I hosted my own radio show every week on LIVE national radio!
  • I have hosted many events, and have spoken at and facilitated hundreds of workshops, events and lectures
The list goes on and on…the point being – CONFIDENCE is key to SUCCESS.¬†
And you should try improv theater! ūüėČ hehe

This is me happy on stage, doing what I love and sharing this joy with others. Follow your passions! It’s worth it! ūüôā Photo by: Martina BoŇ°kovińá Ribarińá

To Change or Not to Change?


Have you been thinking lately how some aspects (or maybe all of them) definitely need some upgrading?

Spring is coming and maybe you are in need of some spiritual detox?

Or maybe you feel the fresh new energy of the 1st year of the cycle that urges you to make some drastic changes and make some changes in your life?

Well, it’s definitely a good time to make changes in your life and start fresh!

If you’ve been thinking about it, there is no better time than right now. You can keep on postponing forever OR you can get real and finally do it. Year 1 brings you lots of new opportunities that you are encouraged to take if you want to take those big leaps. However make sure you are truly ready! If you do it and you really can’t take on the challenge then you may be overwhelmed and drop the whole idea altogether.

Going through a transformation has several stages and I’d like you to take a moment and check where you are at right now.

   1.    Discontent You feel like the walls are closing in on you from all sides, and the more you keep ignoring it and hoping it will all go away, the more it seems to overwhelm you. You keep postponing change cause it totally freaks you out! Even though everything around you is getting unbearable it is familiar and feels safe. Change is unknown and it means getting out of your comfort zone, so you prefer to suffer and pray it will all magically disappear.

¬†¬†¬† 2.¬†¬† ¬†Breaking Point¬†– You get to your breaking point when you simply can’t live this way any longer! Usually you get to this point dues to extreme exhaustion or a dramatic event that triggers the break. I usually say – if you can’t take a hint from the Universe, it will literally stir you in the right direction, whether you like it or not. It’s for your highest good. Trust.

    3.    Decision РYou hit rock bottom and you realize that there is no other way but to go up! You are ready to do whatever it takes to get you out of this situation so you can finally breathe. You want to make those changes and finally take the first step to improve your life which gives you a temporary relief and a sense of hope. You start seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

¬†¬† ¬†4.¬†¬† ¬†Fear – Fear usually kicks in almost immediately after you feel empowered because the mind starts freaking out once things start changing. You suddenly feel uncomfortable and anxious about changing your life. You start doubting your decision and wonder if you’re taking the right steps. You feel helpless and empty.

¬†¬† ¬†5.¬†¬† ¬†Amnesia – This fear of change starts taking over (if you allow it) and suddenly your life doesn’t seem that bad. You forget why you started changing in the first place and feel more comfortable with your previous situation as it’s less stressful than making a change. It’s familiar, comfortable, and you’re used to it. It has become a part of your identity so you resist letting go.

¬†¬† ¬†6.¬†¬† ¬†Backtracking – If you allowed the fear of change to take over you probably convinced yourself to go back to the previous situation and stop the change process altogether. It’s the easier option and doesn’t take much effort. Most of all, you feel safe there no matter how difficult it is. You will learn to accept it as it is and you find reasons why that option is truly a better option for you.

Does this sound familiar to you? Where are you at the moment?
Suffering in silence, taking those steps or freaking out cause the changes are new?

The key is to actually stick with your decision and don’t allow the mind to trick you.

If you feel lost and helpless and need guidance, you simply need a support system. Going through a transformation isn’t easy and you don’t have to do it alone!

Here are some tips!

¬†¬†¬† ‚Äʬ†¬† ¬†Find a community of like-minded individuals to support you
‚Äʬ†¬† ¬†Get a coach to support and guide you through the process
‚Äʬ†¬† ¬†Sign up for a transformation program that will provide you with necessary steps
‚Äʬ†¬† ¬†Meditate daily to stay calm and keep your mind out of the way
‚Äʬ†¬† ¬†Set your intentions CLEARLY
‚Äʬ†¬† ¬†Write down your goals daily!
‚Äʬ†¬† ¬†Say your affirmations to program your mind
‚Äʬ† Listen to brain entrainment and/or subliminal messaging music (check my Meditations library HERE)
‚Äʬ†¬† ¬†Do EFT to clear those limiting beliefs

Don’t wait for the Universe to kick you in the butt!

Visualize to Manifest

Did you know that if you visualize your desired outcomes and goals there is a greater chance of them manifesting? It’s really not all woo-woo! It actually works.

Being the practical Virgo I love having scientific proof so I did my research and it seems that our brain doesn’t know if what we’re visualizing is real or not! Whether you’re remembering a situation from the past, playing possible scenarios in your mind or visualizing exactly what you’d like to achieve – there is no difference. What you’re thinking about you will attract. That’s basic Law of Attraction. On the more scientific level, visualization conditions neurological pathways and influences the subconscious mind. Basically, you are programming yourself. The key is to make it as real as possible and as if it’s already manifested, by bringing the feeling into the present moment.

There are many different ways to do that, but I’d like to share with you one that I found quite powerful.


Your gift today is a Guided Visualization for Manifesting desired goals!

And may I just say…DREAM BIG! Don’t hold back! Why the heck not??

NOTE: You will also get access to my free meditations for manifesting abundance and prosperity with brain entrainment and subliminal messaging. enjoy!

New Moon = New Beginning

Are you ready for the most powerful New Moon this year?

Have you been feeling a bit emotional or distressed lately and have no explanation for it? Well, it could be the New Moon coming up on the 26th February joined with the Solar Eclipse in the emotional Pisces! 

On top of the New Moon energy which always brings a birth of something new and letting go of the old, this one is enhanced as this eclipse opens up a new channel to raise your vibration to a higher level! It may take up to 6 months to balance the energies and get in sync with the Earth’s frequency again. So make sure you tune in, take care of your needs, meditate, go within, breathe‚Ķ¬†

You may feel old feelings rising up to the surface, negative thoughts creeping up on¬†you or feeling unbalanced. It’s a good time to cleanse and heal. Acknowledge the emotions and thoughts that come up¬†and heal. Use forgiveness as a tool to let it go, so you can welcome the new a bit lighter.

Journal what comes up, take time to process your emotions, eat light food, stay hydrated, get enough rest. Do whatever you need to feel balanced and calm. Once you go through this process you will have a clear vision of where you want to be. 

So if there is something in your life right now that you’d really like to pursue – go for it! It’s a great time to do that. Get clear on that, and write it down. You may even create a Vision Board¬†to enhance the image in your mind. Keep it somewhere where you can see it. Set your intentions and goals then surround yourself with them. I suggest you do the New Moon Ritual to make it official.

I have prepared a special worksheet for you to help you in this fragile time and connect with your inner guidance. Make sure to do the ritual within the 24h! You may use the worksheet every month but I strongly suggest you do it today as this one is the most powerful one in 2017. 

GET the New Moon Ritual BELOW and use it to set the intentions and commit to your vision!

What to do when the odds are against you?

I’m sure we’ve all been there – everything seems to be going against you and you feel like the Universe is punishing you! No matter what you try you get blocked or diverted. Isn’t that frustrating?¬†

Well, I’m here to help you get through this.¬†

I used to be a fast-paced workaholic and a perfectionist Virgo on top of that! Not an easy combo. Can you relate? Well, going through my personal transformation and diving deep into my spiritual teachings I realized that this world is created to be in a constant flow. It is always moving and there is nothing permanent here. Did you ever notice that? If not, take a look around you and observe the movement. Can you see it now? Can you understand that searching for security and permanence in this world is absolutely pointless?

If everything is movement, then ¬†WHY are you trying to stand still? Well, I can answer this question too! Our Soul is eternal and THAT is our natural way of being, so we feel frustrated when things aren’t that way. We fear change, sudden change of plans, movement. That scares us, because it’s not natural to our true self. We want eternity.

However, the only way to survive in this world is to learn to go with the flow and BE FLEXIBLE. Once you accept the fact that things always change, you can easily adapt to each situation. When you know that EVERYTHING happens for a reason, you can understand that when it seems the odds are against you, you are being told to STOP, OBSERVE other solutions and CHANGE the plan or simply WAIT.  BE FLEXIBLE. Learn from the experience. That is exactly why you chose to be here. Your Soul and the present moment are the only real and the only permanent things in this world! Everything else is movement.

The moment I learned not to force the flow but go with it, my life became so much easier! I learned to adapt, accept that things don’t always have to go my way as it might not be for my highest purpose. Remember, you can’t see the big picture and that’s why it’s so frustrating! Learning how to trust that the Universe has my back at all times made me feel supported and safe at all times. I don’t feel the “odds are against me”. Now I simply observe and do what is possible or simply wait for everything to shift. Keep your focus on what you want to manifest and listen. You will soon get instructions for the next step, through your inspiration, feeling, intuition, however you want to call it. Collaborate¬†with the Universe. Trust. Every time I do this, the situation shifts much quicker and I get to the next step. Always. Try it and see what happens!

Observe the flow and move with gentle ease, learn from the experience and enjoy the ride! 

Let me know how it goes!

Discipline brings Freedom

If you are like me this title would freak you out! If you’re like me your first associations to the word “discipline” would be –¬†military, order, strict‚Ķin short – hell!¬†

Ever since I was a little girl I had problems with schedules, rules and any kind of limitations of my freedom. I always believed that I am free to do whatever I want, whenever I want, with whomever I want. I was born FREE and I intended to keep it that way. Nobody could tell me otherwise or make me do something I didn’t want to do at any given time. Any time someone would threaten my freedom it resulted in my complete and utter resistance. The word “discipline” has always been a negative word in my mind. I simply didn’t see anything positive about it!

Several years ago I had a major personal transformation, as I returned to the spiritual way of living after losing my way for years. I started pulling out Angel cards every day and following their guidance. Literally! Whatever I pulled that day, it was what I focused on. It was amazing and truly helpful. To this day, Angels guide me and have helped me so much along the way. I was really fascinated at how clear their messages were. I remember one time, I pulled the card “DISCIPLINE” and the affirmation on that card was – “Discipline brings freedom”.¬†As you may have guessed already, my first reaction was – “No freakin’ way! That’s bullshit! I’m not doing that.”. YES, that’s how much I was repelled by this word. I put the card back in the deck, shuffled again and pulled the card again hoping for a nicer word. Guess what. I pulled the same card again! The message was clear. The very thing that I’d been avoiding all my life was thrown in my face. I needed to learn to embrace discipline as tool and learn that it was actually a good thing.

Mind you, it took me years to figure this out. Even today it’s not the most natural thing for¬†me. However, I learned to realize that it was true and the Angels were right. Discipline does bring you freedom. If you want to make your dreams a reality – doing things half way or randomly simply doesn’t work!¬†

You NEED to be COMMITTED and you need to focus your attention to what you want to manifest EVERY DAY! Yeah, sorry to tell you this, but that’s how it works. The good thing is – once you get that habit going, you manifest much more quickly and get to where you want to be. So it’s totally worth it and it does give you freedom! You are suddenly able to manifest whatever you want! Isn’t that amazing?

How do you feel about discipline now? I know I sure feel differently. And I make sure I’m damn consistent with following through so I can make my dreams a reality.

The Full Moon Ritual

As women we feel the energy of the Moon quite intensely and we are connected to the Moon cycles, as we enter our personal cycles each month. So it’s no surprise that we developed rituals to celebrate those cycles. It’s a way to connect with Mother Nature, with the Moon and with our Inner Self.

You may have heard of the New Moon Rituals when we plant the seeds of what we want to manifest. It’s the birth of the Moon cycle so it’s natural that this is the time to create new ideas or begin new projects that we later on nourish and allow to grow.

When we reach the Full Moon two weeks later we get to let go of everything that no longer serves us, nor supports our vision.

In short ­- to move forward with the fresh new energy and welcome new opportunities, we need to release something that is blocking us.

We use the Full Moon Ritual to celebrate and honor the process of letting go of whatever no longer serves us, so we can allow space for the new to come in.   

This Ritual is meant to provide you with general guidance, but please follow your inner guidance and feel free to adapt as you feel suitable for you. There are no rules, just inspired actions. Listen to your intuition, see what comes up and let go of what you feel is most important right now so you can move forward a little lighter.

Make sure you do the ritual on Saturday night right after midnight (Paris time!) 11-12th February 2017 to get best results. Check exact times for your time zone HERE! 


Steps to reach the desired outcomes will reveal themselves in the following weeks. Observe and journal on that, as it may help clarify your path.

Good luck!

I am sending you much love and support!

Get de-stressed within 1 minute!

Did you know that you can change your state of mind within just a few minutes with breathing alone? 

Do you ever notice HOW you breathe? IF you breathe?

I spend most of my time simply reminding people to breathe and EXHALE!

When we get stressed out we tend to forget this simple thing that keeps us alive on auto-pilot. We hold our breath and then wonder why we get sick, why we feel bad and low on energy.

Well, do you know how to breathe deeply?? Are you using your full lung capacity?

Breathing can get you in balance on all levels – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Apart from providing oxygen to your cells with deep and mindful breathing, you also get the essential life energy – Qi, Ki AKA Prana. That will make you feel balanced and energized and will help de-clutter your mind.

Pretty amazing, right??

The technique I’d like to share with you today is called the 4-7-8 breathing technique. It will help alleviate stress and anxiety, because it works like your body’s natural tranquilizer for the nervous system.

Sounds good?

There are so many benefits you get with this technique that I could write for ages, so let me get to the point.

Step 1 – Close your mouth and breathe in through your nose to the count of 4.

Step 2 – Hold the breath for a count of seven (counting in your mind)

Step 3 – Exhale through your mouth slowly, making a “whoosh” sound as you exhale for the count of 8.

Repeat this 3-4 times and see how you feel. You may feel a bit light-headed at first, especially if you’re not used to deep breathing. But don’t give up! Just take a break and repeat again.

The best part about breathing is that is easy, free, always available AND it works! I just love it! 

Let me know how it goes!¬†¬†If you have any further questions or you’d like me to help you out, BOOK A FREE SESSION!¬†

Sending you much love and light and wishing you a lovely day!

How I manifested my life in Paris

It all began 5 years ago when my sister posed this really important question that literally changed my life РWHAT DO YOU WANT YOUR LIFE TO BE РIF ANYTHING WAS POSSIBLE? 

I stopped and thought about it…and realized that I have never looked at it that way Рif ANYTHING was possible??? Well…hmmm…let me think…then it hit me! WOW, IF ANYTHING WAS POSSIBLE??? 

Then I started daydreaming like I used to when I was younger and got the ball rolling.

Well, if ANYTHING was possible and there were¬†no limitations, then I’d really love to live on 3 locations:

  1. a really inspirational , multicultural place with lots of possibilities! 
  2. somewhere by the sea as I need my Sea Therapy ūüôā¬†
  3. somewhere out there in the world, discovering a new place

Crazy, huh? Well, she did ask if anything was possible!

I had no idea where those locations would be and how on Earth was I supposed to make this happen!

So first I went to visit my sister in Paris and mind you – I hated Paris at the time and was literally going to spend quality time with her, nothing else. But the Universe had a different plan for me. I got there and fell in love with the city. It was unexpected and it swept me off my feet, like those big romances usually are. And it was decided – the first one will be Paris! This is the one I will focus on in this article, but just to say that I did manifest what I wanted and am currently dividing my time between 3 locations. ūüôā Yes, it’s possible and if you’re a free spirit like me then you would totally enjoy this lifestyle. Feel free to contact me or comment below ¬†if you have questions about that.

Ever since I was a teenager I was always following the “signs” and guidance from the Universe and it always got me where I was supposed to be. In my late twenties life happened and threw me off track. In my thirties I re-connected with myself and got back in sync with the Universe, more specifically that year when I made this crazy decision to manifest Paris. Thanks to my sister, who reminded my to dream big, like I used to. ūüôā¬†

Let me explain this process step by step so you get a clear picture of how it all went down and how you can do this yourself to manifest what you want.

STEP 1 –¬†Ask yourself the same question – What would you like your life to be if anything was possible?¬†Take your time – this is a big one!

STEP 2 – Decide what you truly want and listen to your heart’s desire.¬†If your wish isn’t in alignment with your heart it doesn’t work. You need to truly want this with your whole body, mind and soul – starting with the heart! You need to be burning for this!!!

STEP 3 Make a Vision Board of your dream and surround yourself with it! I made a vision board of my life in Paris and got beautiful postcards I put everywhere in my house! Paris was literally the first thing I saw in the morning and the last thing I saw at night (the postcard was by my bed). I believe that was the key to be honest.

STEP 4Get excited as if it’s already yours!¬†Imagine you have that one-way ticket to your dreams in your pocket! Get the vibration high every day and enjoy daydreaming about it. It works. Trust me.

STEP 5 –¬†Let go! Don’t freak out thinking about it.¬†I know this is the tricky part but it’s crucial! Enjoy daydreaming but don’t obsess!! That will slow down the process. No worries. No cares. Like when you order something on Amazon – you ordered it so no need to fuss. You know it’s coming! Just be patient and relax. Super important!

STEP 6 Observe and look for the signs! Once you order your wish you¬†will be guided on how to get there. Be open because opportunities may be what you don’t expect. Trust that the Universe will get you the most amazing offers to get you where you want to be . It will send you the right people, the right info and/or the actual path to where you want to be, and much more! This part is truly amazing! I have so many stories to tell on this topic! Just stay on the look out and get ready for miracles! And be ready for it!

STEP 7¬†Take action!¬†I think this one is pretty obvious, n’est-ce pas? Naturally, if you don’t do anything about it then nothing happens. The Universe can throw you the most amazing opportunities, but if you don’t take them, you stay where you are. You need to take action towards your goals! Go for it and don’t be afraid. It’s worth it. I promise. ūüôā

This is EXACTLY how I manifested Paris. The first year I had no idea that’s what it was, but the second year I paid attention and managed to move¬†quickly and easily!

To clarify this – once I decided Paris was the place I literally got a job days after, but back in Croatia, which confused me and I almost turned it down! What I didn’t realize then was that it was the Universe sending me a well-paid and steady job to save for Paris. Easy! However, I didn’t see it that way, so I spent all the money and didn’t save anything. When I started working there I told myself I would work for a year as I wasn’t planning on staying in Croatia, and naturally my contract ended in a year exactly. Why? The management changed and they got rid of a bunch of people – me included. One year after I was shocked to find myself jobless with little or no opportunities to make money and save for Paris, yet I was still determined and realized my error. I didn’t pay attention. So I decided to do things differently and be open to whatever comes. And boy it did!! I got so many crazy and unusual opportunities that not only helped me save money for Paris, but I had enough to stay for the whole period without having to work a day. YES, that’s right! Even though I didn’t have to, I did work a bit because I wanted to, but I didn’t have that pressure of needing money to survive. I had a blast and enjoyed it to the maximum!

Since then I have NO DOUBT that the Universe has my back at all times and that I only need to direct my focus to what I DO want in life, let go of expectations and observe. And have fun in the process!

Try¬†it and let me know how it goes! I’m here for you if you need any assistance ūüôā¬†

Good luck and happy manifesting!
