The deeper I trust, the higher I will fly

The deeper I trust, the higher I will fly

Sometimes we want something REALLY badly. And we wonder why it doesn’t happen. We become desperate. But often we just need to wait and trust, surrender and let some time pass. Then we may see revealed why this thing that seemed so desirable did not manifest.

For me, the desire was to work at a café, one in particular but also in general. This café is super comfy, they have delicious vegan food and by bike it’s just two minutes away. But they didn’t need more service staff, so I didn’t get the job.
Then, maybe two weeks ago, I saw a job advert at another café that was looking for a barista. After a spark of excitement had vanished, I figured that working at just some café wasn’t what I wanted anymore. I wanted to concentrate on photography. It was a key moment for me, because I chose love over fear. The fear of self-employment, being vulnerable to criticism, being seen, and overrating myself. The love for my work, my creative impulses and my passion to work with people on a deeper level.
But I think, had that particular café changed their mind, I would’ve passionately started working there.

I can see now, why that didn’t happen or why it was good that it didn’t happen. I would have rested on what I had achieved, put a lot of my energy into working at the café, when in fact, I am needed somewhere else now. I love working at a café, making coffee, talking to people, helping, being friendly and happy. Doing work where I don’t have to think too much or excessive responsibility. It’s nice and fun.

But what can I really give? Yes, I do have something to give in a café. But right now, there are so many other things to concentrate on giving to this world that seem a lot more meaningful to me.
I engage in the climate movement Extinction Rebellion, where I feel I can serve with my motivation, my positive vibes, my creativity, my environmental awareness, my view the world, and my way of connecting with people.
I do my photography projects and other photo shoots. I feel, that I have a special gift to give to people. I see that my way of working with people isn’t like anyone’s. I know that for me, a photo shoot is more than just taking pictures. It’s a deeper process, that can be deeply inspiring and transformational.
I write about my thoughts and feelings and deep knowing.
I inspire people just by doing what I do, by going my way, by being authentic, by choosing to live my life fully, by giving what I am called to give.

That doesn’t mean I would definitely reject a job offer from that café. I would still enjoy it and I could earn some money on the side. But it’s not a priority anymore and I don’t define my life by it. Because there is SO MUCH that is calling for my attention, support and character.

This experience encourages me to trust even more, to know that everything that wants to be born, will be born. It encourages me to surrender to the force of life, the flow of life and the fire of life.

Sandrina the Wolf Woman

As Women, we learn that being nice is a virtue. But do you know this feeling of pleasing everyone, saying yes all the time, smiling, while inside you a fire of fury is burning, ready to explode?

We CANNOT always be nice and at the same time stay true to our own values and feelings.

We need to set our boundaries and sometimes hissing is necessary in order for someone to see our line.
Let the wolf within us mark our territory to protect ourself and our pack.

This is Sandrina, the Wolf Woman.
We did a BRAVEHEART WOMAN Photo Shoot together and it was beautiful and super powerful.
It’s amazing what happens when we let go of how we think we should be, feel or act.

See for yourself…

#3: Anna, how do You protect Yourself?

“I protect myself by one of two ways: avoiding or preparing.
Either, I suppress negative thoughts about exams, awkward situations or conversations so I can avoid stressful sentiments.
Or, when a situation is inescapable, I prepare for it by soothing myself. I have learned that negative thoughts are exhausting, so I try valuing my thoughts instead of judging them. It’s more relaxed and makes me happier.”

– Anna (Berlin, Germany)
