Learning, deepening and extending this quality.
Letting go means to free oneself from all entanglements with situations, people or material things, which we control, or better where we have to control ourselves.
Control is the antithesis of letting go!
Are you ready to give up any form of control in your life?
Letting go needs confidence! With confidence you can trust that everything that belongs to you remains and only what actually burdens and blocks you goes!
We are able to basically let go of everything. Either we are free from what we have let go or it comes back to us healthy through the letting go process.
Letting go comes from the heart and gives us freedom and this freedom makes us move more easily and dynamically again - whereas control comes from the head and makes us rigid and immobile. The head becomes free and clear and we can again perceive the messages of our soul and use them for our way of life.
Letting go frees the head and the heart begins to feel again.
By letting go the energy in the body can flow freely again and everything can be healed. We become free to fulfil our soul’s mission.
Thus it becomes possible for ourselves to recognise and master our true tasks. We may make clear to ourselves (our thinking head) again and again that everything that is connected in love remains connected and we never need to be afraid to lose it and therefore we do not need to control it.
Letting go enables boundless connections on all levels and opens the way to recognise our true identity! If we let go of everything in and around us that is not serving us anymore, we will perceive feelings and strengths in us that were not noticeable until now, because our control blocked everything.
The energy for the ‘control mechanism’ suddenly becomes free and can be used to fulfil our tasks! By letting go we are reminded again to believe in our dreams and visions and to turn them into reality.
Letting go opens up an infinite vision of boundless facetted possibilities, opportunities and golden opportunities in our lives!
I let go of all that is blocking me, happiness and joy are given to me now!
Go through your home and consciously look at all the things and objects that surround you. What makes you really happy? What do you really need? What are you attached to from memory, thinking or sentimentality? What could you part with? Who could you give great pleasure by giving away one thing or another?
At the same time make yourself aware that you are only visiting here on this planet and have borrowed all these ‘toys’ in your game of life.
Also all people are only play partners in this game! Those that you need for your game stay with you and those that prevent you from strategically playing may leave!
You cannot take ANYTHING and ANYBODY with you when you leave this earth! Everything you accumulate, take care of and organise, do you really need it?
Who or what do I control in my life? Is it hard for me to separate myself from old things? Do I need these things to be happy? What interpersonal contacts do I maintain out of a sense of duty and habit? Who or what do I not part with due to security thinking?
Mindfulness is a simple and profound practice of being totally present, here and now.
Mindfulness means paying attention to your experience, in the present moment, without judgement or resistance.
Mindfulness can include the practice of contemplation and meditation.
What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is possible at this moment and at any and every moment all day long. In essence it is the practice of becoming deeply aware of your experiences you as they unfold as opposed to drifting through your day and your life totally unaware and on autopilot.
What is Meditation?
Meditation, on the other hand, is the dedicated daily practice of sitting quietly and either noticing your breath, using a mantra, a loving-kindness, guided or any one of the myriad meditations available to quiet your internal dialog such that you reconnect with the quiet centre of your being.
What is Contemplation?
Contemplation is a kind of deep thinking, which tends to be a more modern understanding of the word. The very purpose of the contemplation is to turn your attention inwards and make your life a centring experiment in order to first discover and then embrace your true higher purpose in life.
Mindfulness opens the Path of Self-Recognition, Self-Awareness and Self-Reliance.
Self-Recognition means closing the gap between who you think you are and who you really are, being yourself and eliminating resistance in your life.
Over time and with regular practice, many people find that mindfulness can assist to experience less stress, anxiety and worry as well as greater happiness more self-acceptance.
You still experience difficult thoughts and feelings, but you have a greater capacity to be with them, rather than be trapped by them.
Practicing mindfulness triggers a relaxation response causing your blood pressure to drop, your breathing to slow and deepen and you relax.
Your life unfolds from your sense of self and how you see the world. The more aligned you are between who you think you are and WHO YOU REALLY ARE, the more your life unfolds in alignment with your AUTHENTIC NATURE.
As you regularly practice mindfulness, our brain gets ‘rewired’ as new neural pathways are formed, making it easier to experience this relaxation.
With the increased self-awareness that occurs with long term mindfulness practice, people are able to make decisions that are better for them, rather than reactive decisions based on anger, fear or stress.
Decisions are increasingly based on a mindful response rather than an emotional reaction!
You don’t feel threatened as easily and have more capacity to respond to a situation, rather than just react.
Many people also discover with regular mindfulness practice and over time that they have a greater capacity for self-acceptance, self-love and a natural sense of being at ease, even with challenges such as relationship, financial, work or family difficulties.
The Experiential Mindfulness Program and Course I'm offering has been designed to give you a intimate experience of mindfulness and to assist you in developing the habit of a regular practice. It is designed for you to experience the benefits of mindfulness for yourself, rather than just learn about them.
Many people who practice mindfulness regularly, over time find that they:

Retirement is a topic that can make people sleep badly.
Some people save a lot of additional money. But now, in the present, they have less to live for. Which is somehow a pity. If so, then ...
Others have decided to live now and they trust that later everything will somehow be all right. Which can be dangerous. What now …
And then there are those who have a lot now and have saved up enough for later. Hallelujah. They will probably not sleep badly. All good?
What many people forget is providing for old age is more than only saving money!
Of course, financial security is important and with money everything is easier than without money.
But what good is a lot of money if you can't do anything with it because you're sick? Take care of your health now!

What use is the money to you if you have no one with whom you can fulfil your desires?
How happy can you become when you are lonely?
What good is it if you have a lot of money but only stay at home and have no interests or hobbies?
What good is it if you don't know how to use and divide up your free time because for years you were only determined by others?
What if you can't take care of yourself because you never learned it or you’re sick?
If you simply have nothing for which you want to get up in the morning and you lack the sense?

How do you see your future?
Maybe you often think of something like that: When I am old, then ...
- I finally have the opportunity to travel more and see something of the world.
I finally have time to read all the books I ever wanted to read and sit in the garden in peace.
- I will not be such an old fart, I will continue to meet with my friends and can just do great things all day long.
- I will take care of my grandchildren and I can finally be there for my family.
Every one of us has such dreams and ideas about the future.
But to be honest, how sure can you be that what you want will come true?
Maybe then you will simply be too sick to travel. And being away for a long time is not possible because you still have a house that binds you.
And who is actually coming with you?
Maybe you will soon get bored with your books. After all, they haven't been interesting and important enough to get a piece of your time in the last 30 years.
Do you surely have a few good friends and acquaintances later who like to share their time with you? Maybe they have other obligations as well. Or they die. Or move away.
And what about your family? What if the grandchildren just don't like their old grandpa? And anyway, your children and grandchildren also have their own lives and not necessarily enough time to get to grips with you.
Phew, if I read it that way, I could get directly scared of the future ...
But that's not what I wanted to tell you with this post.

Saving money for your retirement means investing money in the future today. Don't get me wrong: Financial provision is of course important and right.
But it is just as important to provide for your health, your relationships, your goals, your purpose and your ideas of what a beautiful old age may look like for you.
You can already do something about that today. And thus make it more likely that you will have a happy old age.
Also invest in your dreams, ideas and purpose
Take care of things as they come. But you should also make sure that things come as you want them to.
So let's start with the slightly different retirement plan.
The last 20 years:
On average, we live around 20 years in retirement, which seems a long time. What you can do.
Of course - and also unfortunately - we cannot completely influence how this time will go and what exactly awaits us.
But let us not only pay attention to financial security. There is so much more to life than that. Relationships. Spirituality. Love. Health. Purpose.
That's why it is important to expand your retirement plan!
That's why you should expand your pension portfolio to include a few more things that are important to you as you grow older.
Because: "The best way to predict the future is to shape it yourself".
Step 1: Become clear about your dreams and ideas
Think about what you want to truly enjoy in your older years.
Step 2: Identify the obstacles
And now search quite purposefully for what could stand in the way of your happiness. Why could perhaps not work out what you wish for? What are the risks? What could prevent your ideas from coming true?
Step 3: Make your investment plan
If you have thought about what your goal is (step 1) and what could prevent you from achieving it (step 2), then the third step follows: your plan.
For this you ask yourself what you can do for your more inclusive retirement so that it becomes as unlikely as possible that your obstacles from step 2 appear.
Of course you can do that all on your own, at least you should do that.
But most likely we don’t know how to do that and what our talents really are. Often we think we know who we are or what we can do best but in our coaching and mentoring we found out, that the truth is a most a surprise.
