Why I don’t have a morning routine

I’m going to be honest with you.

I don’t have a morning routine because I am NOT a “morning person” and the word routine makes me uncomfortable. Never liked routines of any sort and prefer diversity. 

I have been trying to do the morning thing – wake up early, set up a routine and then start my day. But honestly, I am just not a morning person. I work and function better at night and I am truly a Moon child. I love nighttime because it’s peaceful. Everybody is sleeping and there is a sense of calm. Mornings are very slow for me and I like to take my time to get started with my day, preferably after at least 8h of good night sleep. So I decided I won’t force myself to be what I’m not and what doesn’t feel right. I have found something that works for me and this is what I’d like to share with you today.

As far as routines are concerned, let’s rephrase this and talk about daily practice and rituals rather than routines. I like to make it diverse and intuitively guided.

  • Daily Practice – this to me is not 5-15 minutes in the morning/evening. This is something that is spread throughout the whole day. I will explain more below.
  • Rituals can help instigate change and set intentions. I like to use the Moon rituals (you can find my Moon Rituals in the Temple)  to do just that.

What do I mean by Daily Practice?

My daily practice allows me to stay in the flow all the time. I practice awareness and remind myself to stay conscious. Here are some things I do instead of the morning practice that you can try. The point being – there is no designated time for doing this. Do it when you feel inspired and spread it out throughout the day when it suits you. It’s your choice and your practice.

  • Practice awareness by bringing your attention to the present moment. Notice your breath and connect with its flow, eat mindfully and slowly when eating your meal, listen to the sounds around you….just OBSERVE.
  • Allow your inner guidance to show you the path and act intuitively. Most of my decisions are based on that guidance as it has proven to be absolutely correct and for my highest good. This is the same for everyone. Meditate for a few minutes whenever you get the chance – on the bus/metro, while waiting in a line at the bank, or sit in the park on your way home, when in your office set a timer to just close your eyes and breathe…when you get into that quiet space seek guidance. Connect with it several times a day to enhance it and hear it more clearly. Then observe what insights you get to guide you to your next step. 
  • Stay in gratitude and say thanks for EVERYTHING! Wherever you go, whatever you do, whatever happens, whoever annoys you,…say THANK YOU. It is a blessing even if you don’t know it yet. Stop for just one second and imagine there is a bigger plan for you and everything that is happening is a part of that plan. Trust it’s all happening for a reason and is for your highest good. Stay in that state of mind the whole day – every day. Live it. Breathe it. 
  • Forgive and let go – make decluttering on all levels your way of living. Every day make sure to release all low-vibing energy like that of anger, frustration or sadness and keep your physical space clean. Keep your inner and outer world clean. Use EFT or Tapping to release blocks and unwanted feelings, Reiki, Solfeggio frequencies, or any other way that works for you. Make sure to Forgive yourself and others, and let go of any feelings of resentment. To declutter your space make a massive clearing where you donate/throw away/fix things and then keep it clean. Don’t bring more stuff into your home unless you have thrown something that no longer serves you. Letting go of attachments will make you feel lighter and freer. 
  • Get inspired to be conscious – I love reading scriptures or listening to spiritual talks, TED Talks, inspirational messages…whatever I can do to remind myself of my true Divine essence, to be the observer and co-creator of the reality around me, connect with my guidance a little deeper – all is welcome and beneficial.

All this has helped me manifest many blessings in my life and design my reality the way it suits me.

For example, living on 3 locations – beach house, Paris and chosen location (different every year), yacht trips, luxury travel, tripled my income, manifested my Twin Flame, amazing clients and mentors, and so much more! 

I am manifesting faster because I am in the state of flow the whole time. I am living it. Breathing it. Try it yourself and see what happens!

Sending you all loving support!

My favorite free tools

Today I’d like to share with you my favorite free online tools I use in my business constantly. If you’re looking for easy solutions to get you started, READ ON!

  1. Canva – by far my favorite tool for design because it has amazing layouts, free stock photos, custom design options for social media, book covers and lots more….and it’s all free! You can pick some extras if you sign up for the paid plan but honestly, not really necessary. This version will make your life super easy and you will be creating beautiful designs within minutes.
  2. Mailchimp – to grow my community I love using Mailchimp as it allows you to make beautiful designs and customize everything in your mailings. The latest news is you get to automate your emails in the free plan!!!
  3. Skype – I use Skype often for my sessions as it’s free and most people have it!
  4. Zoom – Other than Skype this free app gives you the opportunity to record your sessions and save them as well as hold group classes.
  5. Setmore scheduler – When I started out I used Setmore for booking and scheduling my sessions. However the downside is that you can’t see the time zone which can create some confusion around the time of the session. Still it looks pretty good, can be embedded to your website as a button or a scheduler, and is somewhat customizable.
  6. Acuity scheduler – After Setmore I decided to switch to Acuity as it gives lots of options and is quite customizable, has some cool features like intake questionnaires and various integrations. The free version has lots already to get you started (including time zones!). The first paid option is quite affordable and it gives you even more options! Worth looking into.
  7. Hostinger hosting – The free plan is good enough to get you started and host your website! They have super affordable options for long-term hosting with major discounts and a helpful customer service for any issues you may have. The experience so far has been quite smooth and effortless.
  8. WordPress – Needless to say I’m a fan of WordPress.org as it gives you a beautiful website and tons of features to make it how you like it!

Hope this helps you get started!

Let me know what tools you like to use!

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.


STEP 1 – BREAK IT DOWN

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.

BREAK IT DOWN TO SMALL STEPS.

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! 🙂


STEP 2 – WRITE THEM ON A POST-IT

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

KEEP IT SIMPLE!

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!


STEP 3 – SET A TIMER!

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!

SET YOUR TIMER HERE: http://tomato-timer.com/


STEP 4 – SCHEDULE FUN

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 !!!”

AND THEN…

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 🙂 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! 😉 hehe

To Change or Not to Change?

DO YOU REALLY WANT A 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 – You 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!

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

STICK WITH IT. CONSISTENCY IS KEY.
Don’t wait for the Universe to kick you in the butt!

Visualize(1)

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??
YOU DESERVE IT!

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

NewMoon

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… 

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!

Odds

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…in 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.

Women-Down

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

  • NEXT FULL MOON IS ON MARCH 12/13th! 

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!
