Is It Possible To Live Minimalism In A Family With Kids?

miDear Friends,
in April last year, I shared a post called Simplifying Childhood May Protect Against Mental Health Issues, in which the author gave us insides about the mental health effect of a simple life style and less entertainment overload. In the rise of traveling families and world schooling we heard about parents on the road in order to educate their children. It is truly fascinating to watch how many people are feeling the call these days, to make a change that leads them back to the roots, and to a life filled with human values rather than material goods.
On the other hand there are many who can not even imagine letting go of the smallest possession, and need a little more inspiration to feel attracted to that idea. In the last week I finally run into this two articles, describing the benefits and challenges to live a lifestyle based on minimalism, when living in a family with children. I hope you enjoy the read and if you like the ideas, give it a try yourself!

Abundant Blessings 😉
Edith

How getting rid of ‘stuff’ saved my motherhood, by Allie Casazza:
“Minimalism is the intentional promotion of what we most value, and the removal of anything that distracts from it.” Joshua Becker

Studies show a direct link between the amount of physical possessions in a house and the stress level of the female homeowner. One study done at UCLA found that the more stuff was in a woman’s house, the higher her level of stress hormones. This same study also found that women subconsciously relate how happy they are with their homelife and family to how they feel about their homes. So the more clutter and chaos in the home, the less happy the woman is with her family and her life.
That’s what was going on with me, and I believe it’s the cause of today’s epidemic in mothers. Barely getting by, living in survival mode, feeling like their kids’ childhoods are passing them by even when they’re right there living it with them. Our stuff is literally stealing away our joy and our lives. It’s stealing the most precious thing in the world—motherhood. Find the full article here.

No Excuses: Minimalism with Kids, By Leo Babauta
When my friends Joshua and Ryan took their new book on minimalism on a huge tour, one of the most frequent things they heard was, “I could never be a minimalist because I have kids.” To which they’d respond, “Our friend Leo is a minimalist … and he has six kids.”
And it’s funny, because before I started simplifying my life and experimenting with minimalism, I had the same thinking — that there was no way to change because of my kids, or my wife’s preferences perhaps. Boy was I wrong.
I set off on a journey of exploring minimalism, trying some extreme experiments, doing fun challenges with my family … and that journey has taught me to never again let myself use my family as an excuse not to make a change I’d like to make. Instead, I bring them along for the ride, and we have an amazing time together. `1Here’s what I learned:
It starts with me. You really can’t push your family to change unless they want to. So what I do is change myself, and be a living example that there’s a different way, and that it might be interesting and maybe better. I talk to them about the change so they know why I’m doing it, what made me consider it, what steps I’m taking, whether it’s hard or not, whether I like the change. In seeing my change, they might consider trying the change, or they might just think dad’s crazy, but either way they see a different possibility. So for example I might start decluttering my closet and drawers, or scanning all my paperwork so I can go digital, or clear out a storage shed.
This is a great thing for them to see, but at the same time I’m letting them be themselves with no expectations that they’ll join me. Minimalism is a conversation. Minimalism isn’t about getting rid of all your stuff and living with barely anything. In a family, minimalism is really a conversation about what’s important. What’s necessary. Why we own things and do things. A lot of times, a family never really has this conversation — it’s all just implied in the way we live. But minimalism is about bringing this out in the open and talking about it. The result of the discussion will be very different for each family — some will keep doing what they’ve been doing, because they like that best, but others will decide to try various changes, and there’s no single right way. The important thing is to start the conversation, and to keep it going basically for the rest of your lives.

Enjoy the simple pleasures. Eva and I started doing fewer things with the kids that costs a lot of money (though we still do some of that), and instead focus on playing outside together, playing games together inside, cooking together. I’m not saying we do these things every single day (we don’t always have the time or energy) but we started showing them that the simple pleasures are amazing, and you don’t need to spend a lot of money to enjoy life.
See setbacks as learning opportunities. If you start decluttering as a family, you’ll be really happy with the changes … but sometimes there are setbacks. Your daughter might all of a sudden want a thousand Littlest Pet Shop dolls because she saw some cool videos online. You might all of a sudden have a bunch of stuff given to you by family members. These can be seen as setbacks and can be frustrating … or you can use them as ways to learn about how to deal with these kinds of issues, which are after all part of reality. You have to learn to deal with them, or you’ll struggle. There’s a lot to be learned when a grandparent doesn’t understand why you don’t have very much stuff.

Change traditions in a positive way. There are lots of things we do simply because it’s the way we’ve always done that. But these traditions can be challenged — why do we need to buy so many Christmas gifts? It’s tough to change traditions, though, because people are loathe to let go of what they’re used to. So present the change in tradition as an opportunity to do something awesome. In the case of Christmas gifts, we were going to save the money we would have spent on useless things they didn’t need … and use it for really fun experiences. We’ve gone to water parks or taken family vacations, as our holiday gift to the kids, instead of buying toys. The kids might miss the toys, but they love the experiences.
Talk to other family members. When you start making any kind of big changes, other family members (aunts, uncles, grandparents, siblings, friends etc.) might question what you’re doing. This is because you’re doing something outside the norm, and not everyone agrees with that. However, this is a great opportunity to talk to these family members about what you’re doing, educate them, widen the conversation from your immediate family to your wider family. And again, you’re setting an example for these people, and showing them there’s a different way — sometimes they even get inspired to make changes themselves!

My Collection Of Awakening Experiences Continues No III

2-2by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
nearly one year ago, on February 08th 2016, I shared with you this post called “A Collection of True Awakening Experiences II”, which was a Free E-Book project inspired by the wonderful Barbara Franken – to bring together the stories of many female voices, and their unique experiences on the path to authenticity and truthfulness. I did so, because I love projects that are born from collaborations, I saw a big chance to inspire lots of other women and men, and because I was giving myself a blessing for my birthday – which is the 8th of February.
This year I will make another leap into the unknown, and record an interview that I was invited to by the lovely team of  the awakening platform “The Spiritual Voice”. I will let you know for sure, when the talk goes online!! But in the meantime I did not want us to miss out on a review of the past year, and the steps I was able to make.

In what I posted for 2016, I spoke about the last ten year of my personal path of growth and enlightenment, and the dreams I have for the year that back than was lying ahead of me. Looking now at all the leaps and turns that I have taken in the meantime, I first of all feel like expressing my gratitude to my wonderful spirit guides, my loving dog family, my magnificent friends and all the other wonderful creatures, from the physical as from the non physical realm, for making my life such a magical ride of light and fun.
The Tarot Deck that I was talking about before, is developing beautifully. It is demanding a lot of attention and seams to have a very clear picture of how it want’s to be brought to light. I try to be the best immaculate mother to it, that I possibly can be, just follow all the corners the flow is taking and watch the tables turn. With my personal work load, I am about 1/3 in – my partner is very inspired in her painting process, and so we hope to be ready for publishing by the end of the year.

But not only that this baby is developing just fine, in the meantime I was inspired by international world events, with the idea for a book about creativity in 2017; as this is one of the major energy fields this year is powered with. My partner and I, also started talking about the value of a book about the creative process itself, as it is quite fascinating how deeply we are called to listen to the constant changes the deck is demanding from us. We have to be awake, present and willing to serve, when ever we sit down and concentrate on sharing what we receive.
eI also still adore my income work. Every time I AM spending hour with another being in a one on one training, I feel like another wonderful seed has been brought into blossoming. To have the chance and watch people go from the insecure thought of “am I crazy to think of feel a certain way”, to self-acceptance, self-love and forgiveness – which than leads for them to strength, stability and clarity in their guidance; is always a rise in my own inner degree of divine bliss.

And than, as the end or the ultimate test for every awakening seeker – there is of course the lovely family. I went back home to visit my core family during the summertime of 2016. Oh what a ride it was!! I started of with meeting good friends of mine, who had invited me to come by at their house and do some magnificent energy work with them, which I happily did. I spend several days with this closer circle of very like minded people, than I went to meet my mother. Now you need to know that karmically my mother is the only significant person o my system. She turned 85 last year and is in general in good shape, but what I noticed was a change in mindset.
When I was a child, my mother was a woman who would work and push thru every physical pain you can possibly imagine. She did so to such an extend, that I actually all my life considered her very cruel (a mix of her personal history and as well one of the B-Sides of her numerological vibration of 18/9). Maybe also because one day I had watched her slip with the ax – cut deeply into her meaty knee – take a deep inbreathe, than simply remove the ax – slip a bandage on and continue. As a little child, that was a shocker to me!
And now this same woman is talking about how normal it is to feel physical pain all the time, when you are of her age; how normal it is to not want to engage with life and seriously talk anymore, when you are of her age; and a lot about her loving connection to my beloved brother Martin, who died on Valentines Day 2011. I occasionally talk with my brother too, but I do not share any of her mindsets about aging or the physical body, and even that I did not mention that – my mother was triggered by vibration.

During this Vienna visit, I took many more trips to my mothers house, in order to spend at least 2-3hours the day with her; an amount of time I thought she would be able to handle without exploding on me in one way or the other. I have to confess that I overestimated her much more than I could even ever had imagined in my darkest childhood hatred ;-). The pattern of freak outs ended up with a frequency of 3-4 days, in which i watched her build up her frustration about “not being able to understand my world”, and than unloading this frustration in my presence.
I was fine with that, as I had sensed in my first week of traveling, that I possibly would not come back for a very long time – which also included a big chance that I would not meet her alive again – so I saw it as my last chance for a personal service to our relationship. Now let’s be honest, with today’s technology even long-term physical distance would not make any difference to a family that is close, but in our family the principle of war against everything that is bigger than the single ones imagination was “the word”.nOn my last day of meeting with family members, I came to my mothers house in a state of deep sadness about my brothers absolutely ignorant behavior, and even more the abuse he showed for the brotherhood laws for the Golden Age of Aquarius (a collective human theme, that always sets off my inner alarm system when I see people breaking the hermetic laws). That is something, I can not explain to my mom – and she is not good in holding space for other peoples pain. I tried to avoid a last clash and asked her for some time and space on her balcony, to deal with my own feelings and left for a little conscious breathing session.

But than – like I said – she is not good in handling that other people insist on having feelings ;-). She exploded over the fact that I would allow myself to come to her house, in a state of need for myself – and not perfectly poised and ready to chit-chat with her. In a moment of totally loosing it, she screamed at me “in your presence I cut all my feelings off”; to later tell me in confidence, that she also thinks of me as “the Angel of Death” – because both, my brother and my father died, when I had visited my family. It took me about five month to understand and integrate the details, of how this moment of my life was an incredible blessing.
Time to realize, that the tapestry of this ultimate rejection, that had grown from the moment on I started building my little fetus body in her womb, would unveil the last karmic strings to me that had connected us. By now, a “freedom to naturally BE ME” is the domineering feeling in my life.
Last week I had the pleasure to receive a reading of my personal Maya Calender interpretation from a dear new friend of mine, the amazing artist Gerhild Resch. She has the amazing ability to channel in a shamanic journey, how the different qualities of ones inner powers are feeling and if they are in need of any adaptations. I will happily report about the incredible details she unveiled to me in another post, but lets just say a little right now. Her explanations opened with telling me, that she had ever only shared a world like mine for one time before during her long experience, and that was in a reading she did for a child. The world she discovered in my sacred heart, was in her words that of “Alice in Wonderland” ;-), and that is just how I feel my life to be.

Dear Ones, I recently ended a piece with the following words: “I hope you are filled with a spark of inspiration right now, that you are motivated to remember the wonderfully relaxed ways in which you have been playfully creating as a child, and that you will allow them to guide you to a new mindset. No matter if you are planing to become the most important innovator of the Golden Age of Aquarius, or if you are just looking for new ideas to create your personal life, a playful approach is always helpful”. And believe me when I am saying with all my heart “I acknowledge what an incredibly blessed being I AM, to look at what I just shared with you and realize – I myself have very well followed my sparkling advice ;-)”!

Love and Blessings!
Edith

What We Can Collectively Transform This Year For The Creation Of The Golden Age

golby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
the other day, when I was talking to a good friend of mine about the collective energy of this powerful year 2017, and the impacts it is supposed to make on the collective human evolution into the Golden Age of Aquarius; we where wondering what the details of this changes might be. One of the themes we all will be experiencing over the flow of this year, is the ability of self-leadership that each and every human is supposed to develop.
The first thing we all will need is the ability to see where the political and emotional leader we have trusted till now went wrong. Where the actions of our most powerful teacher are not aligned with the Brotherhood of Man that we desire for a united feeling in the Golden Age of Aquarius. The next step could lead us to explore a bit the borders and possibilities of applying emotional intelligence in our decisions, our words and actions. And than we are called to gather all our courage and step up to bring even the wildest dreams into manifestation. The quotes below are guiding us thru some steps we might have to understand on the way. 

Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.
Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Government is, or ought to be, instituted for the common benefit and security of the people, nation or community; whenever any government shall be found inadequate or contrary to these purposes, a majority of the community hath an indubitable, unalienable, indefeasible right, to reform, alter, or abolish it, in such manner as shall be judged most conducive to the public weal.
George Mason

If our economy of freedom fails to distribute wealth as ably as it has created it, the road to dictatorship will be open to any man who can persuasively promise security to all.
Will Durant

Those who suppress freedom always do so in the name of law and order.
John V. Lindsay

Restrictions of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversion’s. It is the one act that could most easily defeat us.
William O. DouglassdgvA regime, an established order, is rarely overthrown by a revolutionary movement; usually a regime collapses of its own weakness and corruption and then a revolutionary movement enters among the ruins and takes over the powers that have become vacant.
Walter Lippman

The welfare of the people is the supreme law.
Motto of Missouri

Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope…build(ing) a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
Robert F. Kennedy

Those who give the first shock to a state are the first overwhelmed in its ruin; the fruits of public commotion are seldom enjoyed by him who was the first mover; he only beats the water for another’s net.
Michel De Montaigne

The French Revolution of a hundred and fifty years ago gradually ushered in an age of political equality, but the times have changed, and that by itself is not enough today. The boundaries of democracy have to be widened now so as to include economic equality also. This is the great revolution through which we are all passing.
Jawaharlal Nehru

There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things.
Machiavelli

In retrospect, all revolutions seem inevitable. Beforehand, all revolutions seem impossible.
Michael McFaul

The sin of silence when they should protest makes cowards of men.
Abraham Lincoln

Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God.
Thomas JeffersonajDear Ones, this is our time – this is our chance! Align yourself over and over again with the incoming energies this year; dream your most impossible dream; be most practical and wise in your approaches to manifest the things you truly desire, and to bless this world with the full extension of your beautiful I AM light. Stand up and speak out for those who can not do so for themselves, when ever you are confronted with injustice or unfair treatment.
Love and Passionate Change!

Connecting With The Liberating Energies Of The Aquarius New Moon

aqby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
by the end of this week, on January 27th/28th, depending on where we are located on the planet, we experience the peeking of an Aquarius New Moon in 8 degrees and 15 seconds in Aquarius. This New Moon is a blessing to our authentic development, our ability to make bold moves toward inner liberation and our creative ways to approach the Golden Age of Aquarius. Aquarius is an air sign, a force that can show us how to ride the wind of change with ease and the heart of a child.
Another typical expression of the Aquarius character is a love for revolution, a deep desire for transformation of the status quo, and a big heart for all of humanity. For sure you can imagine that this mix is highly supportive of the energies present right now, especially when we consider how the idea of a women’s march in Washington DC has spread all over the world within a New York minute ;-).
During this New Moon influence, we meet Venus in Pieces and Saturn in Sagittarius, in a perfect middle position. This stellar positioning is brings forward one more time, the relationship we have with money, and brand new innovative ideas how to actively liberate ourselves from all old pattern relate. And in innovative ideas, creative sparks and the desire for an increased ability to use our authentic expression skills, are also a blessings we will meet during this lovely and strong Aquarius New Moon cycle.

Time to go for what we desire most, to grab our friendly neighbors by the hand and invite them over for coffee; suggest a new art project to the world and see who wants to realize it with you; or learn a new skill you always dreamed of applying in your life. It is a brilliant time to resolve relationship issues, make new friends, meet a new partner or join a new club. Just make sure what ever you are doing, comes from a place of purity of the most authentic self you are able to be right now!

Here are some quotes that brought in alignment, are representing the influence the Aquarius energy will have on us:
Revolutionaries do not make revolutions. The revolutionaries are those who know when power is lying in the street and then they can pick it up.
Hannah Arendt

We revolutionaries acknowledge the right to revolution when we see that the situation is no longer tolerable, that it has become a frozen. Then we have the right to overthrow it.
Ernst Toller

True revolutionaries are like God – they create the world in their own image. Our awesome responsibility to ourselves, to our children, and to the future is to create ourselves in the image of goodness, because the future depends on the nobility of our imaginings.
Barbara Grizzuti Harrison1960We must become the change we wish to see in the world.
Mahatma Ghandi

The likelihood that your acts of resistance cannot stop the injustice does not exempt you from acting in what you sincerely and reflectively hold to be the best interests of your community.
Susan Sontag

Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.
William James

I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.
Mother Teresa

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
Margaret Mead

Money has always been a particular problem for revolutionaries and anti-capitalists. What will money look like ‘after the revolution’? How will it function? Will it exist at all? It’s hard to answer the question if you don’t know what money actually is.
David Graeber

You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.
Richard Buckminster Fuller

There is nothing more difficult to take in hand or more perilous to conduct, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things.
Niccolo Machiavelli

Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
Barack ObamaFoto Credit: Jessica BaroneFoto Credit: Jessica Barone
Dear Ones, allow me to close this report with a last quote from Robert Darton, “The American revolutionaries believed in the power of the word. But they had only word of mouth and the printing press. We have the Internet.”!! What ever next steps our collective movement into the Golden Age of Aquarius needs, we can share it now hand in hand all over the world.
Love and New Moon Blessings!

How We Can Turn Rejection Into An Active Source Of Self-Empowerment

reby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
during the last month of the past year, I made my first experience with renting out my house and sharing life space with total strangers. I had the plan to approach this new capture of my life, with the mindset of going into a big new adventure, so I was very excited to see what is coming. “And man was I surprised with what was presented to me” ;-). The first person to come and share the joy for an estimated time of 3 month, was not joyful at all with me.
Already on the second day of her life on my property, I could feel quiet resentments in her energy field and a generally slightly judgemental mindset. I invited my renter for a talk, so we can update our desires and needs for the next month and develop a feeling for a mutually shared space. I never was taken on for that offer. Than I tried any kind of different ways to moderate my communication, in order to reach my new life partner – without any success. The only thing resulting from that – was even more anger and resentment quietly radiating towards me. So after a week – I gave up. I decided to life next to another for the time being and simply respecting the differences we have, so we can peacefully “be” – will have to be enough for this relationship.

What can I say – within the day – she was gone. Broke the contract, never expressed anything authentically, but left the second the energetic source of my giving was removed. And let me tell you something my friends, I was never more grateful for all the rejections I already experienced thru life, and all the rejections I have consciously set myself up for – they have served me well in this moment. In gratitude as well, for not having to live in this love limiting setting for some month, I send my blessings and love to this person – and wish “all the best for the path to come!!”. And one more time, I embraced myself in the loving arms of my inner sanctuary, and found myself a better renter ;-). Here are some insides about how we can learn from rejection, and how it even can be fun to experiment with this generally as uncomfortable experienced feeling.

“When we choose to reject those who live differently, we murder our humanity.”
― J.Adam Snyder

“Over the years, I have come to realize that the greatest trap in our life is not success, popularity, or power, but self-rejection. Success, popularity, and power can indeed present a great temptation, but their seductive quality often comes from the way they are part of the much larger temptation to self-rejection. When we have come to believe in the voices that call us worthless and unlovable, then success, popularity, and power are easily perceived as attractive solutions. The real trap, however, is self-rejection. As soon as someone accuses me or criticizes me, as soon as I am rejected, left alone, or abandoned, I find myself thinking, “Well, that proves once again that I am a nobody.” … [My dark side says,] I am no good… I deserve to be pushed aside, forgotten, rejected, and abandoned. Self-rejection is the greatest enemy of the spiritual life because it contradicts the sacred voice that calls us the “Beloved.” Being the Beloved constitutes the core truth of our existence.”
― Henri J.M. Nouwen

“Sometimes people can be negative, especially about my confidence. I trust myself, I refuse to obey, and I noticed there is a need to punish me for it. But haters are important because they show you you’re doing something right. I’m scared of unanimity, artists who everybody likes. When you speak your mind and you’re loud, you will attract negativity. But I have thick skin, I think the fact that I was severely bullied in my childhood helped me build strength and believe in my artistic vision. I deal with rejection very well. I have a lifelong vision and an unbreakable spirit.”
― Nuno Roqueimages

“Never ever seek for gratefulness from mankind, you shall always see ungratefulness. Do what you must do as a solemn duty and that is what you have to do!”
― Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

„Realize your true strength when people reject you. In actual fact, they do not reject you. They only show you your real strength”
― Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“Leaders reject free opportunities they don’t need, so that they can have time to create the expensive opportunities they need.”
― Israelmore Ayivor

“I am good at walking away. Rejection teaches you how to reject.”
― Jeanette Winterson

“A balanced inner calmness radiates from a peaceful center. It neither craves others’ approval nor rejects others’ presence. It neither pulls towards nor pushes away. It has a reverent attitude towards life and all its inhabitants.”
― Donna Goddard

„I know that when a door closes, it can feel like all doors are closing. A rejection letter can feel like everyone will reject us. But a closed door leads to clarity. It’s really an arrow. Because we cannot go through that door, we will go somewhere else. That somewhere else is your true life.”
― Tama J. Kieves

“When you’re following your inner voice, doors tend to eventually open for you, even if they mostly slam at first.”
― Kelly Cutrone

“Every time I thought I was being rejected from something good, I was actually being re-directed to something better.”
― Steve Maraboli

This is a beautiful and humorous TED talk, from Jia Jiang called „What I learned from 100 days of rejection. I highly recommend watching it. Its very inspirational!!


Dear Ones, I hope you you are feeling well balanced and in harmony with yourself right now. If you have to face one or the other rejection, in your personal awakening path into the Golden Age of Aquarius, than I hope this insides and quotes can help you navigate your experience, and leave every pain behind!!
Love and Blessings!

Dedicate This Year To Authentic Creative Expressions And New Manifestations

creby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
over the last two years, we have been invited to pick up on a lot of little teachings about collective and personal power, true abundance, profound wisdom and emotionally balanced authentic living. All of this steps have been the perfect preparation for this years master energies of creative expression, creative authenticity and the capacity in human beings to consciously manifest.
In order to turn our life, in a healthy way, into a constant fountain of expression for the divine fire within, we first need to find balance between the divine masculine and the divine feminine side of life. We need to open ourselves to the wisdom of the universe and the impulse of the moment, so we need to be present with the creation self. Here are some quotes from wise people, artists and truth seeker, who collected a bigger understanding about entering and living creative
expression on planet earth.

“The chief enemy of creativity is good sense.”
― Pablo Picasso

“We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down.”
― Kurt Vonnegut

“I never made one of my discoveries through the process of rational thinking”
― Albert Einstein

“Everyone has their own ways of expression. I believe we all have a lot to say, but finding ways to say it is more than half the battle.”
― Criss Jami

“It’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them to.”
― Jean-Luc Godard

“It’s easy to attack and destroy an act of creation. It’s a lot more difficult to perform one.”
― Chuck Palahniukos“To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.”
― Osho

“People who do a job that claims to be creative have to be alone to recharge their batteries. You can’t live 24 hours a day in the spotlight and remain creative. For people like me, solitude is a victory.”
― Karl Lagerfeld

“When I am completely myself, entirely alone or during the night when I cannot sleep, it is on such occasions that my ideas flow best and most abundantly. Whence and how these ideas come I know not nor can I force them.”
― Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

“Dance above the surface of the world. Let your thoughts lift you into creativity that is not hampered by opinion.”
― Red Haircrow

“Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.”
― Jalaluddin Rumi

“Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.”
― Andy Warhol

“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”
― Albert Einstein

“When you become the image of your own imagination, it’s the most powerful thing you could ever do.”
― RuPaul

“I am my own experiment. I am my own work of art.”
― Madonna

Authentic Leadership And Emotional Intelligence – Teachings For 2017

2by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
I don’t know where you are standing right now in your life, but I have to say “I am incredibly excited about the perspective of this awakening year 2017”!!! It will be a year full of action and active manifestation of lots of little details, that we desire collectively and individually for the Golden Age of Aquarius. But before we are there, we still need to transform and shift a lot of the things we got aware of during the last year.
There is a quote from Arundhati Roy:
“The trouble is that once you see it, you can’t unsee it. And once you’ve seen it, keeping quiet, saying nothing, becomes as political an act as speaking out. There’s no innocence. Either way, you’re accountable”. And this year we are particularly accountable for understanding higher leadership abilities, and putting our own leadership strength behind the physical projects we want to see born into this world.

And it is our time to become the authentic communicator as well as the truthful community leader, that we want our children to have as an example to look up to.

This is a part from the book Meditations with Native American Elders: The Four Seasons
“In order for our children to survive in the world, they need a firm understanding and belief in the basic principles of sharing freedom and respect of individuality.”
–Haida Gwaii, Traditional Circle of Elders

There is a saying:
Tell me, I’ll forget;
Show me, I’ll remember;
Engage me; I’ll understand.
The adults need to determine what the child is learning.
The principle of sharing keeps the youth from being greedy and selfish.
The principle of freedom teaches the youth about choices, decisions and consequences.
The principle of respect keeps us from playing God and becoming a controller of all things.
We need to learn these lessons so we may demonstrate them for our children.
Great Teacher, help me to understand Your principleaaOne of the things we might have to top up our understanding about, is emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is the ability to identify and manage your own emotions and the emotions of others”, states the official explanation of the term. Personally I would add to this, “while not manipulating others and looking for a win-win outcome for all parties involved”. To refine your emotions, you can seek the help of the violet flame and the Ascended Master Afra!!

VIOLET FLAME PRAYER
I AM a being of violet fire
I AM the purity God desires.

OSHO
If you can weep and laugh well, you are alive.

The dead man cannot laugh and cannot weep.
The dead man can be serious in a more skillful way
than you can be.

Only an alive man can laugh and weep and cry.
Smiling is the first social activity,
and should remain the basic social activity.
One should go on laughing the whole of one’s life.
If you can laugh in all sorts of situations,
you will become so capable of encountering them —
and that encounter will bring maturity to you.

I am not saying don’t weep.
In fact, if you cannot laugh, you cannot weep.
They go together;
they are part of one phenomenon: of being true and authentic.
aaaDear Ones, I hope you are filled with inspiration right now to become the most authentic and most joyful leader for this Golden Age, that you can possibly be within this world and your personal space. Remember that the journey is a long-term run, that there is no end and no beginning, but one layer after the other. Keep digging dear friends!!
Love and Leading Passion!
Edith

How To Profit From The Capricorn New Moon Energy Field

12by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
on December 29th we will experience the last New Moon of the year 2016, and it is at 8 degrees in the zodiac sign of the Capricorn. We are talking about another earth sign, that will help us grounding what we learned during the passing year. This year collectively transmitted to us the energetic divine blueprint for wisdom and authenticity. The chance to understand and shift dynamics relate to the abusive side of our personal and collective use of all energies. So one of the things you might be confronted with, is a profound feeling for planet earth – for sensing the needs she has – for tapping into the healing power of nature for the human soul – and for aligning with the changes in behavior humanity needs to face right now.
There is Mars and Neptune conjunct this Capricorn New Moon, which gives this moon event a kind and compassionate touch. At the same time we are in the middle of a Mercury retrograde phase, so us this moment for a kind-minded review of your past and you can start from a place of elevated purity into 2017. Doing so, might even bring some hidden talents and abilities of yours to the surface.

The moon will trigger us to understand deeper layer of structure versus flexibility and the importance of the right timing in life! So make sure you are listening to the inner waves of your soul, and follow the guidance without a doubt. The Christmas holidays have just passed and your home might be overfilled with material goods you do not really need!? Well this Capricorn New Moon is also a perfect moment to get rid of all the overweight you have collected on material level. Make a good big donation of cloth, household goods or toys to the next charity store, and in case you had a big Christmas bonus – put some cash on top of it too!!!

Because when we are in Capricorn, we are also dealing with the meaning of money in our life. At this moment of our collective evolution, money is loosing its power and attraction as a focus for human productivity. Over the last few years, more and more souls are breaking free into entrepreneurship and alternative life forms, in order to use their passion and creative powers for positive changes on this magical planet. Still we need to shift a lot of details in our understanding of abundance and the appropriate use of money, before we can let go of its importance collectively.

Here are some of the most beautiful quotes on money and abundance that fit the understanding for the new golden paradigm:
Don’t think money does everything or you are going to end up doing everything for money.
Voltaire

Money is only a tool. It will take you wherever you wish, but it will not replace you as the driver.
Ayn Rand moonsantaMoney is like love; it kills slowly and painfully the one who withholds it, and enlivens the other who turns it on his fellow man.
Kahlil Gibran

A kind man who makes good use of wealth is rightly said to possess a great treasure but the miser who hoards up his riches will have no profit.
Gautama Buddha

Capital as such is not evil; it is its wrong use that is evil. Capital in some form or other will always be needed.
Gandhi

Remember, money is here to serve. You do not want to serve it. Money is a resource to be employed. It is here to serve. You do not want to become its servant. What does money serve for you? How do you use money?
Living the Way of Knowledge

If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability.
Henry Ford

Not he who has much is rich, but he who gives much.
Erich Fromm

Live simply. Only own that which you need and perhaps a few little things for your personal enjoyment. Fundamentally, own only what you truly need and there will be no confusion, and you will not have to work too hard for money. Give money to support those things that inspire you. They require support, and you need to support them to experience your relationship with them.
Living the Way of Knowledge

The power of force, the power of wealth, the attractions of beauty and charm ultimately cannot compete or compare with God’s Power and Presence.
The Power of God in the World2Dear Ones, I hope you feel inspired, empowered and encouraged by this lovely Capricorn New Moon energies. Hope the information helps you open your mind for profound transformations and for the creation of a new relationship with money, abundance and sharing. Be generous with all the good things that life has given you, and you can always trust to have enough for yourself.
Love & New Moon Blessings!
Edith

Tuning Into The Powers Of The Gemini Super Full Moon

g1by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
on December 13th/14th we experience the last of three Super Full Moons which have blessed us with intense energetic impact over the past three month. This stellar events moved us collectively from the fiery energies of the Aries powers in October, to the grounding and nurturing days of the Taurus Super Moon in November; to this airy, highly playful and communicative Gemini Super Full Moon number three of the year.
During this week, we are invited to take teachings about the plus and the B side of things, people and situations. It is the Gemini’s message to remind us of the essentially two-faced nature of all things. So be prepared for insides about your life regarding: following the pattern and rules of society – versus deciding freely and spontaneously; the difference between simply fulfilling our duties and truly taking responsibility & the gravity of human life versus the ease of being.

Make sure to have a stable inner connection with your breathing (it is an air sign!!) and your feeling body! One of the challenges of this Super Full Moon is the instability it brings into the emotional and mental body of the human collective – Pay Attention! Saturn squares Chiron during this Full Moon, which makes us a bit too sensitive in our feelings, but brings the chance to shift our spiritual understanding of healing the emotional body into higher vibrations.
Mercury the ruling planet of Gemini, is in Capricorn conjunct with Pluto. This brings up the question „where are you holding yourself back“? Who is aware how to dance with the elements, can make this energy field their friend by practicing mental clarity, and letting the wind take care of the rest ;-)!
A T-square of Jupiter in Libra / Pluto in Capricorn / Jupiter apposing Uranus & Aries is bringing forward, an intense revolutionary force of energy right now. It can set into motion a revolutionary push for authentic equality and harmonic, balanced ways of living on planet earth. A way how to profit from the powers provided, is to study again the Native American ethic laws – which are providing insides how to behave as human beings fit for a Golden Age of Aquarius.

THIS PRINCIPLES ARE TRANSLATIONS OF THE HERMETIC LAWS
I. MENTALISM = EQUALITY OF ALL EXISTENCE / BROTHERHOOD OF MEN
Everything sprouts from the same mental essence, translates as “we are all equal”. Now in daily life on planet earth, that does not necessarily mean we have the same chances or the same blessed start in life, but it does mean we all have an equal right to live!!! Which leads to the understanding that we are hear as guardian of the animal, the plants, the rivers and the mountains – not as their masters.. The only one we are asked to master – is ourselves!!11II. CORRESPONDENCE = ACCEPTANCE OF ALL POWERS OF SPIRIT AND MATTER
This law teaches us about our constant interconnected communication with another and the daily use of our 3rd eye for communication based on vibration. Of our responsibility to take care of our emotional field, so we do not effect the surrounding we are in negatively. And it requests from us to understand, accept and integrate our divinity, our humaneness, the inner feminine and masculine energies.

III. VIBRATION = AWARENESS AND RESPECT FOR ALL MANIFESTED EXISTENCE
This is as easy as respecting and applying in daily life, authentic human rights, animal rights and even the rights of planet earth and all her manifestations, for a dignified and safe life!! But not only that, it also means to show respect for the manifestations of what we ourselves and everybody else have to bring into the world. Of adoration for the human path to come to our divine essence and most authentic expression.

IV. POLARITY = PEACE BETWEEN ALL TRIBES AND BEINGS
The principle of polarity is in the middle of them all – and equally it is inside of us human beings, as it represents the “everything connecting higher heart”. The sacred sanctuary of an authentic truth seeker, the only place where true lasting world peace can sprout from. The principle shows that all the things we are fighting about with others – are essentially within the circle of completion of our own spiritual awakening.

V. RHYTHM & CYCLE = JUSTICE AND HONOR IN MAINTAINING THE HUMAN RIGHTS
This sounds like it would be a more official matter in everyday life, that the government and other big institutions took responsibility for. But in reality this principle corresponds with our ego, and the translation is about each and everyone of us!! Its about how much respect do we show for the normal everyday survival needs of every being on earth. How balanced we run our business and how careful we communicate, when we are in dispute with others. And it is about how gracefully we can surrender to the flow of life as given.

VI. CAUSE & EFFECT = AUTHENTICITY AND HONESTY IN THOUGHT, WORD AND ACTION
Be who you really are; express what ever the divine guidance within you demands you to bring into the world; only say what you really mean and WALK YOUR TALK!!

VII. GENDER = TO MAINTAIN OUR STRENGTH IN ORDER TO INTENSIFY THE POWER AND TO USE THE POWER ONLY TO CREATE POSITIVELY
This allows us to “emotionally get it”, that our physical bodies are masculine and feminine simply to represent the universe authentically, not to separate us from another with stupid human concepts and ideas. That the whole world is relationship, everything we do effects ALL of us plus, that all manifestations need a seed and space to grow!!! By taking responsibility for this awareness, we will automatically seek to only use our strength for aligned manifestations.gmDear Ones, where ever you are, what ever you do, the hermetic laws are working for you, on you and within you. Allow them to guide you in your attempt to bring your divine kingdom from the higher  blueprint, into realization for all beings to live in a Golden Age of Humanity. May your insides be of much help for you and the shifts bring tons of magic into your life!!
Surrender and Full Moon Blessings!
Edith
