How do you want to feel?

What’s your favorite mood? How do you like to feel?

I keep a photo from my third birthday next to my desk and I can see clearly that child loves to be joyous. One of my favorite things was smiling at people and laughing from my heart for no reason. I have to admit that I miss it sometimes.

A scary thing

A scary thing

This was a SCARY moment!

The first time I got to see most of the mandala designs printed on paper I didn’t know what to expect. What if they didn’t look good? What if all of this was just a waste of time?
Can YOU relate to this? Have you ever experienced something similar?

My personal motivation to get out of bed in the morning is the Italian breakfast at the coffee place downstairs. ❤ Is this something we have in common with you? 😀

Look at this artwork!

My sweet grandmother was the first one who got to color the latest coloring book. She was so excited and did a great job. The effect she has created reminds me of a kaleidoscope. Amazing! She also redefined the term “coloring books for adults” 😉

Anti-stress therapy

Anti-stress therapy

Have you ever tried coloring as anti-stress therapy?

Last year I’ve bought my first coloring book without knowing anything about coloring. Every time I felt stressed, frustrated and even stuck I would feel this urge to open the book. Coloring really helped me to release all those emotions and calm my mind. But it wasn’t always so easy.

To tell you the truth, the first few weeks I sucked at this! It was horrible! I couldn’t decide what I wanted to color, which colors to use and how to start. I felt so disconnected from colors, beauty and creativity that I couldn’t let myself just play and enjoy the process.

Does this sound familiar to you? Did you have a similar experience with your first coloring book?

Italy Perugia Cathedral

Don’t you just love Italy? Delicious food, strong coffee,  sunny weather and beautiful cities.

I have to admit that this cathedrals in Perugia is one of my favorite. Architecture has always inspired me especially when there were colors involved. This is what keeps me creating more and more art.

Have an inspiring day!

A fun, creative way to connect with your soul.

A fun, creative way to connect with your soul.

It takes just a couple of minutes and it can be practiced at any time, anywhere. It is a great way of using imagination to receive ideas, guidance and inspiration from your soul. Daydreaming is fun, easy and anyone can do it.

When you immerse yourself in daydreaming you dip your brush in your soul and paint the life of your dreams. You are on an exploration journey of your deepest desires, some of which you might have forgotten or suppressed. Your soul is helping you connect to your dreams and is showing you all the wonderful ways you could experience life.

paint and brush

Make yourself comfortable, relax and ask yourself, “What would I love to experience next? Where would I love to be? With whom would I love to spend my time?”. Picture the whole experience and feel it with your entire body. Engage all of your senses. How do you feel? What do you see? Do you hear any noise?

Daydreaming can also be use to achieve goals and solve problems. Focus on something you need clarity on and ask yourself, “What would be a great way to ___?”. Just relax and daydream for a while. Be bold and consider the wildest ideas and solutions you might get. Infinite possibilities will start revealing themselves. Remember that taking action is vital. You need to act on the inspiration in order to create any change you desire.

Often daydreaming isn’t taken seriously by adults. That lack of resistance makes it a great way to connect to your soul and receive the guidance you need. Have fun and enjoy the process as it unfolds.

Love,

Anna

The essence of yellow. Meditating on yellow for 5 days- Day 5

Today is the last day of meditating on yellow. Would you like to share with us what insides you got and what action you took?

After focusing and meditating on yellow this whole week I created this visual reminder in one of the corners of my desk. It reminds me of joy, laughter, fun, playfulness, childlike approach to life, optimism and creativity. This week’s experience was so powerful and inspiring that I’ve come up with some affirmations that carry the wonderful energy of yellow. Here they are.

Yellow infused affirmations:

  • I am a magnet for fun and laughter.
  • I play with life every day.
  • I breathe in optimism and infuse my life with it.

Would you like to try them out and have some fun?

Love,

Anna
