Finished!

It was very interesting experience and journey. Thank You Jessica!

Sometimes it was very challenging to listen and notice my inner voice and not to substitute it for thoughts comming to me with some words of wisdom. Definetly it´s something I need to do more often.

 

Day 14 and 8- I keep private

 

Day 13: Use Your Wounds

First I was asking myself: What message would heal my scars/wounds?...Later question flipped over: What can my emotional scars/wounds teach me?

Message:

You´re OK.

You´ll be OK.

You´re always whole.

I´m not my emotions. The emotions are mine.

I´m not this body. This body is mine.

Day 11: Change Your Tone of Voice

It´s not bad to protect ourselves, but be overprotective yes....sometimes we don´t open to people or another person, because of our fear to be hurt. And it seems very reasonable. I´m writing about myself , but it´s easier to write generally but I´m sure that many, if not all pepole, know this....

Message:

Fuck it.

Let life be life itself with all its pain and joy.

Open to it.

Otherwise you´ll miss its fullness!

Day 10: Reframe  With An Affirmation

Sometimes when I feel  tired or down I ask myself for what are all these efforts good for...

Message:

All efforts for improvement bring growth and fullness of life.

.....Improvement is a side effect of conscious acting.

Day 6:  Active Listening Throughout The Day

Message:

You are worthy.

Strengths and weaknesses don´t make you less or more worthy.

Day 5: Allowing Your Own Experience (Empowering Yourself)

Message:

You are perfect as you are.

You don´t need to improve your actions to be great. Be aware, that you are great and improve your actions.

Day 4: Addressing Unkind Thoughts

I don´t know why this message came for this promt, but it´s true that I belong to people which don´t know what to do in their lives (also as profession)....and I really try to figure out and maybe that´s my problem. I´m bothering myself with it.

 

Message: BEHIND EACH STEP IS A CHANCE.

A step is a change forward.

You don´t see further, but take a step.

With next step you will shift yourself towards new opportunities.

Take a step forward and you have chance to come to a place, which you have no idea exists.

 

First I was: "Oh no, my E is going out of composition.".....but this is exactly that unknown place, which isn´t in my view...

Day 3: Respond To Your Day

Today I became sad and stressed about the whole situation in the world with this corona chaos and conflicts around the world, which can even lead to war conflicts. And when I imagined that something like that can really happen, I saw not very bright future and hard times.

 

I must say, that at first moment I don´t understant my messages:) But luckily just at first moment.

 

......Message: THE SUN SHINES EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE CLOUDS
Even though everything is dark, it´s temporary.
Clouds will pass and the sun will always be here.
The sun as symbol of source of life, positivity, light.
Darkness is temporary. The sun is always here, even though you can´t see it.
The same as Love, the same as Harmony, the same as Wisdom.
And maybe wind will come.....

 

And this message can be applied when darkness is inside or outside me.

Day 2:  A Message in One Word

Last days I´ve spent a lot of time sitting, working with PC, drawing and less moving. Outside rain, no walks, no sport....althought I do yoga, it´s less than an hour. And  for my body it isn´t enough.... my message today in one word was MOVEMENT.

Day 1: Current Feeling

My current feeling was, that I felt overwhelmed with all the things, that I should have done (need to + have to+ want...) and so little time to do it.  So I ´ve made pressure to myself...and my message to myself is LET IT BE...and later "Let It Be" has become "Be Present".
