Tap into your own solutions

 days

There is a key to open a door. Another key starts an engine. A certain song access a memory that transcend us through time and space. A certain color can make us smile. Some of those keys are solid manifestation of matter, while others are volatile; gentle perceptions of our senses that transpire beyond form. In the spectrum of life, every day represent a key to infinite possibilities. In a perpetual magnificent dance of concentric rings, our days confer a platform for growth. The key to unlock everyday magic resides in everyone of us. It is unique for each one of us. When we are truly aware of the power that resides deeply inside, we truly are living in our greatness. The key that access our own solutions, can have many names and shapes. Each one of us is so complex and so unique. I called mine: clarity.

“Know thyself”

Open the light inside. What is most important in life? or What make you happy? or What do you truly want? are questions that all of us have been asking from time to time. How often are we asking these questions? Daily? Monthly? Yearly? What drive you to achieve more? Do you desire deep personal relationship? Do you take risks to get what you want, or do you value safety more? are related questions that help you answer to the first set of questions. They also help know yourself better. When you learn about your own strengths and attitudes, you can create your own map to reach your goals more effectively. All you have to do is to get clarity about what is most important and decide to live by those values no matter what happens: are you an employee or you get laid off; are you in a true relationship or decided to separate from your partner even if no one gives you the support you need. It’s already well known the only way for us to have long-term happiness is to live by our own standards and constantly act in accordance with what we believe our life is truly about. Once we step in our own greatness, day after day we experience life more from a level of creativity, rather than survival.

“Stand guard at the door of your mind.”

Knowledge is a treasure; a gold mine. Clarity is the key that will open your treasure and will bring you the joy to expand it. We live in the age of information and we are daily overloaded with data that requires immense will of choosing: good from bad; constructive from destructive. A new study shows that everyone is bombarded by the equivalent of 174 newspapers of data per day. In the daily tornado of information how do we discern our own thoughts? Where we can find strength to remain within the parameters of our plans and not be trained in the programming of others?

In solitude. In introspection. In silence.

YOUR time is: NOW

Take time to get to know yourself. Create time for YOU. Every day. Don’t waste a day! Listen your own thoughts. Look deeply into your eyes. Smile to the person you see in the mirror. Allow your arms to give you a big hug. Give yourself all the compliments you would expect from others. Only you know how much you deserve them. Breathe consciously and heal all the pain that might upset you right now. Bring LIGHT and JOY to every cell of your body. Celebrate who you are becoming every day! Remember that life it’s about the journey and the choices you make along the way, every single day. You are here to experience, to love, to grow. The key to your own fulfilment resides within yourself. Start digging! Nobody will do in your place.

Crina, with gratitude for guidance.

Dance with Life

2 Comments

Do you like to dance? When did you dance last time? How often are you expressing your joy through dance? Remember, for a moment, the energy that overtakes your body while dancing. For me, dance is balance. It is the vibration from deep within which brings healing to body, mind and spirit. It’s a releasing and refreshing process at the same time. It’s magic!

Recently I attended to a workshop where I’ve identified my great metaphor of life:

“Life is the dance and I’m the dancer.”

Since childhood I’ve been passionate about dancing. At the preschool graduation festivity my teacher gave me the main role for a dance sequence, one with no choreography. Without any fear of failure or inadequacy, I treaded in the greatness of my genuine creativity. I remember so vividly my improvised flowing poetry: small steps in the rhythm of music, a genuine smile and shiny light in my eyes. The audience had been totally engaged and forever conquered! My teacher’s assurance and the successful experience of expressing my creativity through dance, gave me huge confidence! In many stages of life I recognized myself in the role of the girl who improvises. I haven’t always had the success of my six years old self, but I know that this role has brought me great fulfillment and somehow became part of me. It defines me. Dance taught me to look for resources inside. Life taught me to feel its rhythm rather than to listen its music. Its steps are sometimes faster, sometimes slower; sometimes in the rhythm of the Cha-cha, Waltz or Tango! It’s imagination; energy in manifestation. It’s fascinating! It’s the dance of LIFE!

Dance is also the recalibration of feminine and masculine polarity in the body. We know that the feminine energy doesn’t necessarily represent the female human body and the masculine energy doesn’t necessarily represent the male human body. Each of us has both Feminine and Masculine energy inside us. The feminine energy is a loving and intelligent energy that contains the quality of intuition, compassion, emotion, creativity, empathy, spirituality, and right brain thinking, while the masculine energy is an intelligent energy that possesses the quality of analytic, rational and linear thinking, competition, determination, action, and left brain thinking. When both feminine and masculine energies are strong and harmoniously merged together, they allow us to have a better understanding of life. It leads to spiritual growth and ascension.

In each of us there is a wellspring of creativity. Creativity is an attitude. When this attitude is supported by a clear structure of daily actions, the manifestation of life becomes like a dance. The intent behind every word and deed draws the lifeline. Dedicate time to get to know yourself. Where are you now? Where are you going? What do you want from life? What do you want to leave behind you? Decide to live consciously. Many around us will want to save us or will try to mold our profile after them. Beyond indecisions, victories and disappointments we all have friends who encourage and appreciate us for who we are today and for who we will become. Keep them close. Create together. Dance together. Enjoy your dance with life!

From deadlines to lifelines

From a very early age we are conditioned to do more, do it better, and do it faster then everybody else. As grown ups we often put outrageous demands on ourselves just to keep others happy. Why? We often tell ourselves that we don’t have any time to waste on breaks and reflections especially when we’re under a deadline, or perhaps working on precious projects in our lives. It’s scientifically proven that taking breaks often give us time to reflect on our work, which adds meaning to what we do.

I’ve surprised myself lately starting new projects and struggling to prioritize my focus between them and those already up and running, so the next day I took that break.  I stepped aside to observe mindfully what programed beliefs are unfolding in this segment of life. When I STOP going by default and reconnect with my inner guidance, everything gets more substance and clarity.

While driving my children to school that next morning, I surprised myself on the collective urge to define, to structure and to present out loud where we are in relationship with who we are at a certain point in the cycle of life. The edifice of creativity! Connected to a larger stream of consciousness, I had a snapshot from a discussion with my husband from a week before while driving from Calgary to Edmonton. We were astonished to notice how the majority of the traffic participants were driving only on two lines even though a third line had been in place for a good portion of the way. With a giggle, I voiced an instant observation:

“Only those who are really open to new experiences on their path are able to see and take the unexpected open routes for their benefit and close the gap of transition easily and effortlessly.” 

Well, ending the epiphany thought, I was getting closer to a construction zone. There is a new bridge gradually circulated. Somehow, that morning, they missed using the orange cones and with my mind setting on finding new ways of prosperity, in a minute I found myself on the top of the offline bridge. I’ve been laughing unraveling the message. I got the solution to my puzzle!

“Work in progress; once at the time.” 

Contemplating the bridge arteries in the construction mode, I allow with patience and perseverance my own projects to get a solid structure one by one in scheduled priority. With this insight I closed my eyes and visualized the bridge fully open and functioning at maximum capacity in complete harmony, from deadlines to lifelines.

What would be the appropriate age to teach my children about this concept of mindfulness? What language to use for “letting go” any pressure or expectations? Or, maybe they’ve already picked it up from their virtual world games. I just need to constantly upgrade the “Ads” and inspire them to find that reset button and start fresh; to continually give them a perspective of being enough in the process of learning how to build their own empire, called LIFE. I am amazed and grateful to remark how we grow together, regardless of age, platform and scale.

Every month I have scheduled a day off to contemplate the architecture of my life. My focus and productivity are significantly improved since I rememberd that:

I AM ALWAYS CREATIVE, ORGANIZED AND EFFICIENT!

“How you do anything you do everything.”

My friends: Enjoy building your own bridges and structures between your inner and outer world! Take breaks often, so you can reveal in the beauty of your journey! When you need to mirror your own strengths, please get in contact with me!

A new stream of consciousness

My children inspire me every day.  They provide the deepest and most exquisite emotions which enrich my existence. I am immensely grateful for the privilege to be their mother.

2016-09-30 11.46.29.jpg

Today, while organizing my notes, I found a special drawing. I remember asking my son  on the day he brought it home from preschool, “What’s this, honey?” His answer came sweet and genuine:

“THE MACHINE THAT CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING.”

At 4 years old, he gave me all the functioning details, of course: the way anything that gets in follows the drawn path and gets out clean and transformed. I was dumbstruck by this genial piece of art. I couldn’t stop asking:

“EVERYTHING?”

“YES, MOM, EVERYTHING.”

He was answering in a quiet peaceful tone every time I was asking. WOW!! For years this special drawing has been glued on one of my office walls. Every issue or difficult situation I have had to confront since then has been projected through this magic machine, and all of a sudden the solution was appearing in the most easy and unexpected way. How come? How much power have I invested in that imaginary machine? What great forces could be consciously accessed to shift and reinvent a certain layout? In which realm does the transformation really happen? Is it inside or outside of us?

Among billions of brain cells unimaginably interconnected, believe it or not, we create our immediate reality. We manifest who we truly are inside: the specific situations in day to day lives, from our careers to the plants that decorate our homes; from our partners to all the people we connect with in every single day. In what manner is all this assembled? Well, here come the fascinating challenges of self discovery and achieving mastery over our lives.  

As a new season begins, a new cycle of life is right here touching my nose. I’ve been sensing for over two years that somehow I’ve spiritually outgrown my accountant dresses, and I’ve designed a new, more casual, collection – for “energy work“. A special and unique feeling of glory and relief impressed me exactly three months ago when I stepped away from a job that was tailored to who I was nine years ago. I embraced this huge confirmation that I’m ready to step up into my new role: master manifesto. Fully engaged I have the clarity of my steps into a new stream of consciousness. Once decided, new flow of energy connects at subtle levels and new people and events are welcomed every day into my reality. I’m right here and right NOW displaying the JOY within and witnessing divine creativity!

How well we get impressed by society to TRUST the natural flow of wellbeing and expect only good things to come to our way? How strong we BELIEVE in that infinite power inside us that everything happens in perfect synchronicity with who we become every day? Start living the life you desire by drawing a line – YOUR LINE, writing a  word – YOUR WORD, inventing a compass – YOUR COMPASS, and by taking that decision – YOUR DECISION.

“In YOU right now are all the answers to your life.”

The Magic Wand

I’ve always been fascinated by Psychology and by the idea of observing how people around me are running their own show in life. It took me over 10 years to comprehend and constantly apply the labor of building mindful bridges or growing spirited wings in order to connect the two worlds: the inside and the outside. These days, there is tons of advice and endless solutions to any situation available to us. Everywhere we turn our sight they can be found, for which I am immensely grateful. I’m highly resonating with some of the most committed leaders of the personal development industry, and still firmly convinced that only personal experience can enlighten the path of growth and transformation. Once we step on this magic journey there is an uplifted perception that comes along and can be labeled as synchronicity or alignment. This unique feeling wired up my two worlds forever and became my favorite relish!

Being caught in the carousel of LIFE as: an awakened mother, a spontaneous wife, a co-operative housekeeper, a docile 80% employee, and 20% free launcher – there is a major Question tickling my mind lately…

   “How am I going to become more efficient in accomplishing my roles and allocating   the percentages?”

It’s now universally accepted that Qs are the most effective tools with which our MINDS work wonders. And, we also know that the answers present themselves all around us, we just need to listen and observe mindfully.

On a sunny Friday, while I was taking a walk in my neighborhood, I reveled in the idea that I created this space just for myself, freeing an entire morning from a tidy schedule. Anyone who knows me will appreciate my honesty and will tolerate my desire for taking a break, and contemplate “free will”. I bent to pick up a stick and smiled thinking about my oldest son, who always seems to find a stick when exploring nature.

I reflected on a conversation I had earlier that morning with my mom. She’s recovering very well after a gallbladder surgical intervention. With a cheerful voice she asked me if I wanted to hear something funny. Of course I did. I always valued our close relationship that we’ve managed to flourish; even as we live on different continents. Well, she was happy to share with me that now, during her stay in the hospital she recalls a memory from when she was in her thirties. Passionate about knitting, she dreamed about staying a week in a hospital to dedicate time to pursue her creative projects while all her relatives came to visit her and bring all kind of goodies. And now her dream has become reality! And she laughs, so I knew she really let go all the bitterness that somehow her system glued along her path. After thirty years, she finally gave herself permission to take that time off, but her passion for knitting has been gone for a long time. Now she feels the relief and the joy of a new beginning. Remember how back in those days, women simply couldn’t take some time off? No time for getting sick? Was being in the hospital the only way society accepted the absence of anyone from the duty of life? How much has society really changed? Is this how societies still work these days? Fortunately, more and more of us are discovering and exploring the power of good questions.

  Patterns and programed beliefs!

I just got the answer to my Q!! I’m so grateful to see clearly how every small decision in day to day life can open doors for new possibilities, and so excited to acknowledge that 20% of my programed beliefs are removed for good! I am here and now creating my own space, my own reality! Rather than waiting for a thirty years leg time, I choose to accomplish my creative projects, NOW!

Every day we might get concepts or identify solutions at the conscious and subconscious levels, wondering if we are on the right route, or doubting our skills. And there might be a month, a year, or ten to thirty years gap until we accept our readiness to cross that imaginary line. Here is an insight: We are ready from the moment we formulate any question! Take time to hear and notice the answer to your questions. Identify your patterns my friends, so you can smooth the design for your dreamed destination. Build a self-sufficiency mechanism. Small daily reflections can be a trusting guide for inner validation. Believe in your steps that can transcend the limitations that you think you have. Decide to live today!

And there is something more: the stick in my hand, alchemical became a magic wand! Just because it witnessed my thoughts on the alley!

Give beautifully, ask precisely, and receive gracefully!

Ocean waves and golden sand are witnessing our play. We are building a sand castle, and I am amazed to simply observe how naturally each of us have been assumed the roles: the three men digging the holes, while I’m building a fence around them. When the holes were ready to store some water, dad started to build a tower. The other towers were mirrored at certain spaces and angles from the main tower, and in the meantime I looked after some shells to decorate our harmonious family project: the final touch!

“Beyond our natural instincts we all have natural born talents.”

We already know the theory! But, how do we acknowledge them? We already know that, too! Isn’t it true? We just have to observe our passions and our timeless desertions to simply be and express our creativity.

There are many of us looking beyond the surface of our reality, deep enough to find the inward beauty. All we have to do is give it meaning. Is that enough? The unique magic spark that comes from within is sustained with persistent power of belief, and then it manifests. Are we allowing this to happen every day?

Here’s a thought: Very often we forget how much beauty resides deeply inside us, and we get caught in the mundane. We grow up so used to carrying lots on our shoulders, and sometimes we omit even to breath properly – from the belly! I have surprised myself many, many times in this posture, even when on vacation! Why? We can stop truly living because we feel too grown up to simply believe in that magical sparkle. Maybe we fear the judgment of others. Maybe we fear that we are not enough, and therefore not loved.

It is our responsibility to get the most out of our unique inner beauty, and manifest it into the world! And here comes the mastery of getting leverage and the artistry of staying focus. Conditioning us to be present, to question, and to observe, might allow the miracles truly happening sooner than we expected.

Sand Dollars

        – Sand Dollars, where are you?

        – Thank you Ocean, for giving us 2!

We jump and laugh; we sing and run, than guess what? We STOP to catch with our breath and BABUM: our request is instantly delivered! I’ve been astonished by the synchronicity, but my children collected them with the most natural gesture, as if they somehow knew that the 2 most magic and whole Sand Dollars from the beach were literally sent specially to them. A treasure, indeed, by the way it was manifested!

There were times that I’ve been very focused on giving. Years of giving beautifully until exhaustion. Then I paused and asked myself: Is the life only about giving? The answer came, of course instantly: It’s also about receiving gracefully, like this blessed family time at the sunny California. It’s a mind setting and it’s about keeping the balance of giving and receiving. Don’t forget to ask precisely what would you like to experience, my friends!

Magic Moments

20150716_220416_resized

A few weeks after a special and transformational Tony Robbins event “Unleash the Power Within”, this “LIFE”– Haddaway’ song still sounds so vivid in my mind!
                                       “Life will never be the same, life is changing!”
I always knew that somehow! At least since a national writing contest, where I’ve been requested to use the word ”died” as a metaphor. With my 14 years old wisdom, here is what I wrote:“How the days died?” Now, I can tell why the rhetorical question impressed my teachers so much. I finally get it! It is about the meaning we give to the words. It is about the deep emotions we’re capable to link to the words and experiences. It is about the magic moments we count, weather or not we are ready to give sense to our lives.

Yes, LIFE flows in moments! When we realize that we can never access the moment that just passed, nor can we replicate it, than we can fully acknowledge that all we have is the present moment. That who we really are is not stable. We can change our perception about us and what’s surrounding us in a moment. Who we would be if we focus on creating our every moment? With every breathe we take, with every step we walk, with every decision we make we recreate ourselves, and YES, Mr. Robbins, “we shape our destiny”!

Standing on top of a cliff I can see myself at 18 years old in a small town in Romania. Sitting for hours in a grave yard, I’m trying to understand something bigger that I’ve been able to embrace at that age: The Existence! I was trying to understand what life is about. After witnessing the extinguishing of my fellow countrymen lives in 1989, I was looking for my identity, in a grave yard. I was desperately looking after the real mentors and strong personalities. Driven by this mind setting I’d discovered my passion for lecturing. And YES, I found them: the great Romanian’s deported minds: Petre Tutea, Emil Cioran, Mircea Eliade. For many these would be just a few names, but for me these names opened a new mystical-philosophical world, that became my identity for a while. There were speechless magical moments when I understood that all of us have a fundamental human right: “the freedom of word”, the freedom to voice our personal truth!

From the top of that cliff I can see myself 10 years ago stepping out from a failed marriage. In my naivety, trying to be a perfect fit for a culture that treasures to save appearances, I’ve been the half of a couple appeared perfect if looking from the outside. Looking from the inside though, it has been a shallow friendship , but diseased at its deepness as an abscessed tooth.

“I’ve been the frog swimming into the gradually boiled water!”

YES, that was me! Enough victimized, I jumped out!! Alive!! At that point I’ve been praying for a prince on a white horse to save me. Well he came instantly, not on the horse but with a breath taken bouquet of white roses, in which I could see all his promises. In those magical moments I felt: this is my man! He came, not to save me, but to support my growth!

So here we are, 10 years later! We created together our own world, uprooted and away from our past. Hand in hand pressing certain buttons for both our progress as couple and as parents for our two gorgeous boys, we’re creating our magical symphony every day! When he looks into my eyes I know there are countless magical moments waiting for us to be discovered!

On the top of this cliff in a quantum leap, I realize that I’m living the life I dreamed of 10 years ago. I understand that all my thoughts and all the movements I’ve made so far in my life were my choices. And, YES Mr. Robbins, I am not my story! I am the creator of all the magic moments that fulfills my dreams and aligns my blueprint with my desires into manifestations. Thank you for all the breakthroughs I’ve acknowledged during the four days event in Chicago! I’m living my dream life every day, by choosing my feelings, my thoughts, my words, and my posture! There is no return from the point we realize that WE OWN every moment of our lives. And YES, every day dies with the sunset, but it is our choice to stay focused on living every single day with immense passion!!

It’s in our power to live our lives or our story!
“Step up! Step up! Step up!”
