Hey Ladies, Feeling is Good!

Water Ceremony – Temple of the Water – Peru

Hi there, gorgeous ladies over 40. How are you feeling?

Let’s have a chat. I would love to share my thoughts with you and know your opinion. So, have a break, sit down and relax. It’s time to connect. It’s time to connect with Your Self.

How are you feeling in your body? Calm, happy, joyous, and peaceful? Or do you feel the stress of busy, busy, busyness? Well, it even may be that you do not feel anything at all right now. It can be that your mind is so full of different sorts of thoughts that you forgot how the feeling actually feels. OK. That happens. It’s good to be aware of it. Just take a deep breath and relax.

I want to talk about feeling wise.  That’s how I feel today.  Yes, I am feeling wise and I didn’t even know it was a feeling before! It did’n make too much sense first and so the curious me decided to explore it more.

Am I wise? Am I a wise woman? I say it loudly: “I am a wise woman!“ Well, honestly, I feel quite mixed emotions saying that loudly to myself.  And yet, somewhere deep within I am sure that I have gathered wisdom that I am here to share. And yet, that critical voice in my head says ironically ‘yeh, sure, who do you think you are?’ And my real mind goes: “Where did I hear that before?“ “Who used to say that to me?” Yes, there is a doubt in me if I can dare to say  ‘I am wise’. There is even a shame of all the moments in my life when I did not behave wise at all! And yes, there were quite a lot of them! Oh dear! And yes, fear of others people’s judgment showed up as well. What will they think about me?

And yet, deep inside I know I carry wisdom. Wisdom of all my women ancestors and of course my own wisdom that was born in my own tears and laughter, pain and ecstasy, falls and rises, fear and love.

I don’t know who’s voice was it in my head. Who was the one who did not believe in me? I don’t know. I didn’t get the answer. And it does not matter anymore. I know now that it was not me. I only allowed someone’s else belief to limit my life till now. Not anymore. I am choosing to connect with my wisdom within.

Yes, I am a wise women and I dare to say it!

And you, my dear sister in womanhood, you are a wise woman too! Connect with your wisdom and embrace it.

I am grateful for my feeling and for what they communicate to me. Yes, feeling is good!

What did your feeling show you lately? What did you learn about yourself from your feeling? Share. Inspire. Encourage.

What’s on Your Bucket List, Ladies?

Wow, what a wonderful Sunday it was!  Not only that it was beautiful warm sunny day at the end of the winter here in Australia but it was my first  ‘official’ bucket list day as well. Yey!

Two months ago I met with some other ladies at the “Bliss workshop”. With two of them we decided to meet once a month and have a ‘ladies day of bliss’! We just wanted to get together once a month and do whatever makes us happy. We started by just having brunch, chatting, laughing. As you see, just normal “girls” stuff. Last time we met the idea to create our bucket list was born.

Let’s do together the things that we always wanted to do but… didn’t have someone to go with us, didn’t have courage to do them, felt embarrassed for even wanting to do them,…you name all the reasons why we didn’t simply do things we would love to do.

And so we created a bucket list. It was surprisingly  easy to put together a list of activities we want to try, explore, experience and enjoy! In five minutes we had ideas for two years ahead! And it felt awesome!

For couple of last years I have dreams of me figure skating. I mean real night dreams. And I am an amazing figure skater in my dreams, you can bet on that! I have no clue why I have these dreams and what might that mean but I feel soooo good in them that I decided to check it out in the real life and put ice skating into my bucket list.

And here we are, ice skating in Sydney! Not many adults here and just few of them my age, probably no other woman over 40 as me. It’s more about kids, this place. It’s the right place for us to be!

We have so much fun! Just that special cold smell of the ice, fresh breeze on our cheeks; gosh, what an amazing feeling! I feel the same free spontaneous excitement as if I am skiing or dancing. I feel really high and at my place! It feels so good to connect with the child like joy inside  and just purely enjoy the moment.

I am not exactly a figure skater in the real world, with no surprise, but that doesn’t change anything on my awesome feelings, joy and excitement of doing something special for myself. And I am going to take some private lessons, well, just in case the amazing figure skater in me just needs to wake up. Let’s find out!

All right, what’s next? There are lot’s of other exciting things on our bucket list: kayaking, pole dancing, ballet class, painting class, pottery, …..

Life is great! What’s on your bucket list? Common ladies, find your Self and enjoy it!

Let me know,

Love Your Name and Why is it So Important?

Love Your Name and Why is it So Important

I changed my name. Yes, Karolina Maya is a name I choose for myself just two months ago and I like it. I feel deeply connected with my name now. I feel the energy of my new name and I feel it’s really me.

Everything is energy. And that’s the truth for names as well.

I never felt connected with my previous name and I did not know why. There is nothing wrong with the name itself. I quite like it on someone else; not on me though.  But because I did not know anything else, I did not pay too much attention to these feelings. It just was what it was.

I’ve come across information about the importance of our names in the past. My natural curiosity led me to read books about meanings of our names, numerology of names and so on. It was always interesting but it never passed that line of being just an interesting topic for me. Until two months ago.

The week of my birthday I started to get strong messages to rebirth and to let go of my name. I did not understand for a while but decided to trust and follow my intuition and my subconscious mind.

And then I got it. Suddenly many things from the past started to make sense. Our family tragic story came to the surface. All dots got connected and I got the full picture.

I knew I was named after my dad’s brother who died in an accident in the military service when he was just 19. I knew I was born within a year after that happened. What I did not know was the powerful Vow that my dad made my mum to keep and name the first child after his dead brother. And the child was Me.

Now I understand that this family tragedy has never been healed. Now I understand why nobody ever spoke about my late uncle, why my dad could not stand any emotions, why he shut his emotions down. Now I understand why I leant so quickly not to cry in front of him and shut my own emotions down.

And more than everything else; now I understand why I always felt the urge to fight for the right to be me. Somewhere deep inside me was the deal that I was born with. The deal to replace someone. That deal took me away from my birth right to be me.

And so I let go of all the old attachments that I had because of that name. From now on I am me.

The learning that I want to share is the importance of the name. Yes, name is energy. Be sure that your name resonates with your soul and support you in what your heart is calling you to do. If it does not, feel free to make your own choice. Let go of the old and chose what is right for you. Do it for yourself!

Love your name! If you love your name, you love yourself. The choice is yours. Love yourself!
