Be with yourself

The kind of relationship we build with our fellow human beings has a decisive influence on its quality and what we can experience in this relationship. We can also build a good relationship with ourselves and nurture it throughout our lives. A good relationship with oneself is an important key to an authentic and fulfilled life.

Therefore, spend time consciously with yourself to really get to know yourself and to create and live a good relationship. To see what a great effect this will have on you and your self-perception, I would like to invite you to spend some time with yourself just 10 minutes every day to give time for just that. It doesn’t matter whether you prefer to take time in the morning, during the day or in the evening. It is time for you with you.

It is important that you consciously take time for yourself - just for you. During this time you are undisturbed. You can arrive in your time at yourself, feel and sense yourself and listen to your inner realms.

I was a seeker and I still am, but I stopped asking the books and the stars - and started listening to the teachings of my soul.


Breathe life 

If you do this the first time you will probably feel strange. It will probably also take a little while until you can really calm down. Maybe you will feel uncomfortable at first. All this is fine, accept it as it is. All these feelings and thoughts are in you right now, they belong to you. But you are more, be aware of yourself and move on.

These 10 minutes with you will be easier if you start by simply observing your breath. Observe how you breathe in and out. Follow your breath through your body. Observe how it comes and goes. Observe how your body moves. Perhaps you can also observe what thoughts make you travelling away from your breath. Observe yourself lovingly and return to the breath again and again. The breath is what keeps you alive.

Listen to your inner voice 

Also speak to your being again and again. Tell it that you are spending time with it now and that you have the desire to really get to know yourself. Give yourself the space for your Self to tell you about itself. Create an inner space of silence to hear the powerful voice of your soul. Listen with all your senses – as intensely as you can.

If you take this time for yourself, you will be amazed at what 10 minutes a day can change in a week.

Just give it a try and experience your being.

The good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge.

Bertrand Russel

A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.
