MOST RECENT

Provide for yourself first. |ad/anzeige| One of the most important things I have learned since moving out of my home country is to take enough time for myself each day. My time is self-love. And as we know, self-love is a necessity for a happy and content life. I started spending my mornings offline again - meditating, lighting candles, doing yoga, journaling, manifesting, and tuning into myself. I highly recommend everyone to take some time off each day to dedicate to self-love practices, no matter what that looks like. I'm currently learning to prioritize my own wellbeing, as nothing is as important as physical and mental health. Creating a sacred space for myself where I feel safe and comfortable is essentials for me. We all deserve to feel good, to relax, and to experience wellness. Life is not meant to be one big hustle. Enjoy yourself. You're worthy of self-love.

SOLO-TRAVELLING.
It's not always easy. really. but I'd choose it over and over again.
sometimes I beat myself up for not being more courageous. For feeling anxious at times. But today, I feel proud.
I've been here for a week now.
So far, I've changed airbnbs three times, got locked in an elevator, lost my phone in an uber, lost my bus ticket, walked many many miles each day, visited the city center, visited the opera house, went shopping, visited bondi beach, bronte beach, tamarama beach, dealt with a crazy stubborn jetlag and some major anxiety, pulled an all-nighter to finish my new YouTube video, was recognized by people in the streets who follow me, got to know a few people here, did a ton of filming for my next video, approached a guy at the opera house (who happens to be a vegan videographer - ummm?! thanks universe), watched a sunrise and many sunsets, experienced waves of euphoria, and tears of fear, lots of doubts and worries, and so many happy moments.
Solo-travelling is not always easy. You need to deal with every challenge on your own, or rely on strangers. but I would choose it over and over again - cause this kind of freedom is priceless.
I can go wherever I want, whenever I want, for as long as I want, with whomever I want.
I can do whatever I want, whenever I want, for as long as I want, and with whomever I want.
I can be whoever I want to be, each day.
That's why I travel alone.🕊 But that doesn't mean it's all rainbows and cotton candy clouds.
I've felt extremely overwhelmed over the last two days because I was standing in my own way. because I believed in a story I invented myself, in my own head.
there's always a way out.
the way out is through.
I ain't givin up so easily. 😉
I've already become so much more courageous, self-confident and self-reliant within these few days. I'm grateful for every experience.
I'll upload another YouTube video in the next few days - sharing more about my journey.
Sometimes it's crazy how talking to you guys seems the easiest to me. thank you for being here, and for listening to my story.

I'm a saltwater ocean, learning to swim in my own waters. torn between waves of euphoria and tears of confession.
My masks have been washed away by what they call "intuition", as I stranded on the endless shore of what they call "coming home to yourself".
I am so happy; but not because of this place, but because I've realized it's not about this place.
It's about listening to my intuition, ALWAYS.
Germany has never been the problem. I first needed to leave to see this.
It's only been five days and I've already learned so much more about myself than I could have imagined.
I'm here for an adventure, right now.
But I'm gonna back myself up in the long run.
One of the most valuable lessons I've learned along my journey is not to stand in my own way, but to do what feels right to me no matter the expectations of others.

I'm so excited for this new chapter of my life. I'm in a new accomodation now and will stay here for two weeks - I haven't decided yet what I'm gonna do afterwards. This is as much of a surprise for me as it is for you.
So for all of you who haven't found it out yet, let's make it official: I'm in Sydney, AUSTRALIA.🇦🇺 Feel free to spam me with tips and recommendations of all kinds - food spots, hot spots, stunning nature, must-sees, etc. 🙏
I wanna meet you guys! How about having a meet-up?? 💫

Home is not a house, it's a feeling.
|ad/anzeige|
I'm home in the world;
a wanderer who has fallen in love with being unbound by time and space.
I build my nest wherever I go.
Sometimes I stay for a few days, and sometimes weeks or even months.
I have no desire to settle down,
but I might one day.
I never say never,
welcoming all possibilities,
open for every surprise.
I can't tell you where I'm gonna be in 10 years, and I don't need to know. But what I know for sure is that I'll be listening to my intuition, and that's what makes me happy.
embracing the unknown is an art of its own.
my favorite part about surrendering to uncertainty is that all doors open up, all limitations fall away, nothing is impossible.
here's to a life full of adventures, crazy stories, and a home I have found within myself.

"your current reality is the direct result of the stories you have believed in up to this point.
not only the stories you make up in your head and convince yourself of, but especially those you've been told by others & society.
Let me tell you a secret: it's all just manmade stories. ideas of how things are supposed to be. 
I want to empower everyone to listen to their heart over a standarized concept based on consumerism. 
do what makes you happy. 
so many of us never dare to actually choose our own path.
many people work in a job that doesn't fulfill them, to buy a house so expensive that it takes decades to pay off, and to fill every corner of that house with stuff to compensate for the dreams they gave up when they decided to trade the promise of "security" for their freedom, creativity, self-expression & art. 
by no means am I addressing people who love their job, their home, their life (I think that's obvious - as I said, follow YOUR heart. I'm talking to those who feel unhappy, unfulfilled & empty inside). I'm addressing those who think they have no other choice. those who choose fear over self-love. those who wanna tell me all their excuses as to why they need to remain trapped in a story of a fear-promoting society, so they can defend their own misery.
I could tell you all my excuses too. my severe health struggles back in the days. my eating disorders. my depression. my time in dept, my complete lack of know-how about anything business-related, my dependency on my former relationship, my university studies I felt pressured to finish, etc. I had every reason to say "I CAN'T" but I chose to say "fuck it. of course I can!" I feel like many people who follow me think it was easy for me, or that my journey is different & therefore I was able to break free. not. at. all.
I am one of you. I'm neither more special nor more talented than anyone. None of us is special because WE ALL ARE. we all have talents sleeping inside of us. it's really only about making one mental decision to find what makes you happy, and then have the courage to build your life around it.
when you do what you love, there is always a way because love is the way." #WrittenByKris

Goodbye Barcelona 🌴✈ The past week has been so chaotic and very challenging to say the least - but I'm proud of us, for staying calm and positive no matter the external circumstances 🙏
Thank you @alexasearth for being a real friend I can rely on in every situation.
I already miss you. ❤

I'm currently learning to listen more.
To observe how I feel, what makes me sad, what makes me happy, what sets my heart on fire. I'm learning to step away from everything that is not nurturing my soul, and I embrace what makes me smile more.
"Are you living your own dream, or someone else's dream?", she asked firmly. And I started to cry. She knows more than I do, and she will always remind me to be true to myself - this little voice in my head.
It took me quite a while to make this decision - where I'm gonna move to, for now. I have been to 5 continents in the past two years. I've seen quite a few places on Earth. And there's many destinations I have yet to explore. I had 3 places in mind - on 3 different continents.
Yesterday I made a decision.
A decision that is not based on any external influences or other peoples' expectations. It is purely based on what my soul needs at this very stage of my life. and there I have my answer. one destination left. one place I feel so clearly in my heart. how does it feel inide? it feels light, warm, and safe. it feels like growth. it feels over the moon exciting. and it feels like a decision I made for myself.

I BOOKED MY NEXT ONE-WAY TICKET!! ✈✈✈
Now the big journey begins.
I'm gonna leave Europe on Tuesday - in 4 days! 😱🙏
I won't just be travelling. I'm moving to another continent. God how long I've been waiting for this day.
One thing I've learned along the way is that it's okay to have your own dream, and to go to the places that nurture your soul. Other people don't have to understand or agree. it's your life, not theirs - neither your parents, nor your teachers, nor the opinion of strangers have the right to take away your freedom of choice.
If you want to go to India and live in an ashram, please do so. if you feel like travelling to Japan to stay in a teeny tiny apartment, go ahead. if your heart longs for a little island in the middle of the Pacific ocean, then follow its needs. if your soul aches for exploring the Peruvian jungle far away from civilazation to reset your mind, then for God's sake, do that!
There is nothing wrong with what YOU feel is right, you see? Everyone has different desires, and we're all reading different pages of the book of life.
We all have a choice.
A choice will always provide a chance.
And when we dare to take the chance,
we can make a change.
My next step is for sure the biggest change of my life.
Here's a tip for all of you:
Never discourage someone who's following their heart.
And never EVER let anyone discourage you to walk the road that's meant for you.
don't let the small-thinkers dim your eternal flames.
Don't let anyone tell you what you can't do. You can do, have and be EVERYTHING you want. When you have understood this secret, nothing and no one can stop you.
Dream big.
Make it happen.
Shock everyone.

Women are creator who create creation itself. We are the masters of the divine feminine, the force that nurtures, transforms and heals the World 🌎. We don’t need to regain our power, we need to reactivate it. It has been within us all the way. We have the strength to touch the whole planet with our unshakable passion. Our scared intuition, our fearless love and our ancient wisdom. It is time to stand for ourselves and to own it unapologetically. Dear women fear not to express what you carry inside. Embrace and cherish your emotional side, your sexual side , your intellectual side, and your spiritual side all at once. You are multi-faced beings you are so much more then BEAUTIFUL, but you are indeed also very beautiful. You are the full circle. Dare to be all you came here to be. You are the mother ,the lover, the daughter, the sister, the warrior, the medicine women, the healer the goddess. You are wild, you are fierce, you are sensitive, you are a miracle. You feel everything and that is your gift. Dear women my wish for all of you is to love yourself unconditionally to reconnect with your inner queen and to shine your way through life. You never came here to be suppressed, discriminated, or ridiculed. You came here to illuminate the whole world 🌎 with your light 💛✨✨☀️. #WrittenByKris #soulsister #onelove #vegans #awakened #enlightenment #lightwarrior #heart-follower #graciaspachamama #flowlikewater #listentotheearthelements

4 days left. I'm waiting for the moment when I'm fully realizing it. when I'm fully aware of what's unfolding in front of my eyes.
Creating has been a big challenge for me this year as my location makes it impossible to translate my vision into art. I cannot wait to finally go to all the places that resonate with my soul. I'm gonna make time to paint again, to work on new projects, to create more films, to read more books, to dance, to laugh, to smile until the end of time. I'm gonna start working out again which I haven't done regularly for almost a year now, I'll make time for beautiful souls, for meditation, for nature, and I'm gonna start going to actual yoga classes!
up to this point (and I'm still hustling here), I've always had this fear in the back of my head, this urgency, which caused so much unnecessary stress and pressure. one of the most difficult things was the feeling of not having done enough at the end of the day. I think that's something many creators struggle with because this job - if you put your heart and soul into your creations - can take up double the time of a regular job. over the last two days I observed this. Ticking off my to do list is crazy difficult right now. I'm working the whole day and at the end of the day I feel like I need 12 extra hours to finish my work. But it's alright. It's all perfect. I'm not complaining. I'm just letting you in on my stream of consciousness to spread some more authenticity and transparency about my situation. on a positive note: I'm currently learning to accept that I can only do so much in a day, and in the evenings I stop, no matter the unfinished tasks on my list. that's something I'm currently understanding: doing your best is always enough.

I'm leaving Germany in 5 days.
I'm crazy. really. yet it feels like the sanest decision I've ever made.
for the last 8 months, I've worked my ass off for this dream. to be a digital nomad. this has been my dream since I started studying medicine.
when I'm leaving Germany, I'm also leaving behind some old habits that are no longer serving me. my number 1 priority for this new chapter of my life is mental health. I mainly focussed on work this year as I first needed to create a stable ground for myself to rest upon. the next step is to reconnect to the safe space within me, to make remembering not only an occasional practice but a lifestyle, to listen to my body and its needs, to treat myself friendly and gently, to stop working in the evenings, to spend my mornings offline, to create new nourishing routines, and most importantly, to heal the part of my soul that hurts the most.
By no means is my life perfect. I'm a work in progress and eventhough on some days I feel so high on life that I actually become the whole sky - there are also many days I feel so low that I could drown in the deepest of seas.
I'm still dealing with inner battles, but I know they're subsiding.
By choosing this path, I choose myself. I choose self-love.
I always knew I couldn't work in a regular job. whenever I did I would either get very ill, severely anxious, or depressed. same with university. it's my soul screaming at me, begging me not to neglect myself. when I go against my dreams, I go against my heart. And when I let that happen, I choose fear over love.
I just can't do that. it would actually kill me.
As I've been inspired by others who've chosen their dreams over a "secure" job, I hope that I can inspire those of you out there who are struggling with their own way of living. the worst years of my life were those years of trying to fit society's standards - because I was going against everything that I am since birth - free. unlimited. untethered. undefinable.
it's okay to be different. as long as you are true to yourself, you should never - EVER - compromise your dreams to comfort other people who gave up on theirs.

our life is our choice. nobody else's.

One day, she said "fuck it" 
and lived happily ever after. 🥀🖖 ⚡ 
A few days ago rock bottom turned into a seemingly bottomless hole and I kept falling and falling and falling. 
I found myself in a scary dark place where my eyes could see nothing but a wild ocean of hot tears. 
And what I did was one of the most difficult things I've ever done: 
I chose to sit with my darkness and asked what it can teach me. 
It would have been easier to jump off the edge of a mountain. 
I found an answer so complex, yet simple that it shook me to my core. 
the biggest mystery of life in four letters. 
Love. 
some reduce it to three letters: 
God. 
some reduce it to two letters: 
Be. 
And some reduce it to one letter: 
I.
It all start with us. 
With I. 
With I am. 
It all stars with God. 
It all start with love. 
It all starts with our belief. (I am not referring to an old man in the sky but to God in the sense of consciousness, energy, etc.) Our belief is always created by us initially. 
Therefore, we are always the ones that have the power to make a choice.
I'm not telling you be positive all the time and suppress your suffering. 
I'm telling you to take as much time as necessary to feel the hurt as long as it needs to be felt in order to allow it to teach you what you need to be taught. Take your time to reevaluate, change perspectives, listen, understand, get to its roots, process and then let it go.

A lot of us never heal from pain because we don't dare to go deep enough.
After all, we're living in a participatory reality. we're both participants and creators at the same time. 
every action you take, every word you speak, every thought you think has consequences. this is how you build your reality the way you perceive it with your eyes and feel it in your heart. 
I have learned my lessons for now. 
I welcome brighter days back into my life again. 
I'm ready to enjoy the view from the top.
Let's do this. 🙏

I tried to find myself in labels, other peoples' images, social concepts & definitions of all kinds because I thought it would make me feel like I belonged. Like I was part of something - a social group, an online movement, a category.
the more I tried to fit in somewhere, the more I distanced myself from myself.
Our species is addicted to putting labels on things, defining everything, putting the ineffable nature of life into neat tiny boxes, so we think we understand it. We have a global problem with certainty and control.
When we forcefully try to categorize the world and ourselves, we create separation. because categories only work when we exclude. separation is the root cause of global suffering, and so is attachment.
when I'm detached from everything, I'm connected to everything.
Labelled thinking is limited thinking. As soon as we identify, we waste our time trying to erase paradoxes.
I'm neither "spiritual" (as it's portrayed on social media), nor a hippie, nor an activist. I wear makeup when I want. I buy food in plastic packaging. I like having fun in life. I like watching YouTube videos by @shanedawson. Sometimes I'm way too silly, and sometimes way too serious.
I like reading about quantum physics, neuroscience & cosmology while eating nut butter with a spoon straight from the jar. On some days I eat too much. On others too little. my sleep cycle is completely off and on most days, I don't follow my morning routine I always preach about. I like people - I don't care about genders. I like having deep connections - I won't call it "relationship". romantic love doesn't equal sex. having a soulmate doesn't equal romantic love. I can have more than one soulmate.
you won't get certainty from me. and I only recently found out why that's more than okay. because humans are not stagnant. we are one big living breathing flow of energy. We are the embodiment of change.
you get honesty, love and authenticity from me. I embody my truth. "Allow yourself to be in paradoxical unity where all just is." - Wayne Dyer

Life is paradox. so dare to live. 🕊

Oh how pale our lives would be
if we never wrote poems about rainbow skies
and sad goodbyes.
We live in a world of wonders, of magic, of light;
a world of chaos, both dark and so bright.
In this cosmos of entropy
we must learn how to be
without trying to flee
from this paradoxical unity.
Real balance doesn't mean to avoid all extremes,
but to marry the poles to the oneness of all things.
to embrace all the feels,
all the smiles and the tears.
to trust in our journey,
to see love where there's fear.
As we overcome the dualistic nature of life,
we tune into all we are,
nothing's wrong, nothing's right.
Take my hand and jump with me
down into the abyss of uncertainty.
When we step into the flow of eternity,
all wounds are healed, love is all we see.
Our species is ready to enter 5D,
so let's tumble along th edges of our galaxy.
Let's dance with form and the formless itself
until we wake up from this collective dream
and remember what we've always been.

In isolation, we can activate the seed of love within,

thank you @that_girl_and_her_plants for spending this beautiful day with me and for exploring the edges of our limiting beliefs together 🙏 we can learn from every encounter - "when you know how to listen, everyone is the guru." - Ram Dass
be open.
stay detached.
give love.
trust - it is its own reward.
