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!

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!
