Dharma Goddess Lakshmi

Dharma (right living):
Your Dharma is the unique vibration of you
fully expressed in the infinite matrix of life.
The longing to show up and to contribute 
with who we are
is shared by all of life. 
Look at the flowers, the animals, look at children;
everybody wants to take part, with all we got.
So why do we make it so personal?
Why do we make it about “being good enough”,
or the “right moment”, or “getting it”?

Lakshmi gives you powerful keys of how to connect with and to fully step into your dharma.
Your dharma is unique yet much bigger than the personal. Dharma is Shakti –
pure creativity – unleashed, and once aligned with our dharma,
we instantly find fulfillment 
independent of the outcome or the form it takes.

Tend the Seed

The Gift is indestructible. It is a seed. We are not required to be God. We are not required to create the seed. Only to plant it wisely and well.
~ Stephen Cope (in: The Great Work of Your Life)

You carry a gift in you – your gift – your seed, your medicine for the world, your gift to humankind. How relieving to recognize that we don’t have to make it, this gift of ours! It is here, it has always been here. Rather, our task it to tend the seed, to nourish it with water, sun, and love, and to cultivate it by trusting it.

Trieb_im_SchneeCultivating the seed and later the sprout is a metaphor for taking consistent decisions that sustain our gift and our dharma. Once we “know” our dharma cognitively, emotionally, and intuitively, this life purpose acts as a lighthouse for us.

Decisions that we take throughout our life can either lead towards the dharma lighthouse or in a different direction. Nobody forces us to take all our decisions towards the lighthouse, but… Individuals who consistently take choices in favor of their dharma, experience tremendous support by the whole universe.

Will you tend your sprout, even when snow falls again? Or do you loose trust: “Oh, it’s doomed. The cold snow will destroy it.” How deeply do you trust your seed, your sprout, your gift, your dharma?

Take an inquiry of your daily decisions whether they lead towards the dharma lighthouse or not. You’ll find the size of your trust. It’s never too late to return to your seed or sprout and tend it with the love in your heart.

Natural Beauty

201107xx_tuerkenbundlilie_alpbachYour dharma will never ask you to wear a mask or play a role (unless you’re an actress / actor 😉 …) On the contrary, the more you live your dharma the less masks you’re wearing. In order to return to the unique flavour that you are it is necessary to let go of all the copy-and-paste identities that you carry around. When you come back into your very own dharma flow, you will be truly yourself – every day a bit more your true self – showing yourself to the world just as you are. No need to pretend or build up facades. You stand self-confident in your very nature with all the experiences you’ve been gathering so far.

When you blossom into your dharma, you do this in your natural beauty. Just as flowers do. All the pictures here on this website are taken by myself – in my everyday life – they are not at all photoshopped. I want to show the blossoms in their natural beauty: They are role models for us in standing in their unique beauty, in their unique expression, in their unique qualities, in their unique being.

Do we dare to stand as raw, as naked, as vulnerable, as strong, as natural, as self-confident as they do?

How do you feed your dharma?

What do you do – on a daily basis – to feed your dharma?

To feel the deep longing in one’s heart and to take a decision is one thing. The other thing is to stay with it. To commit to what you really want on a daily basis. To feed your dharma plant every day. To practice dedication. To stay with your commitment.

kleine_weisse_blumen_kindergartenbusHow do you feed your dharma plant? Do you water it? Do you offer it sunshine? How much do you show your love to it?

It is a very personal thing how water – sunshine – love look like. It might be that you light a candle for this longing in your heart. It might be that you exercise in the fresh air. It might be that you ask for support from experts. It might be that you get up and rent an office of your own. It might be that you take a nap after lunch. It might be that you write a blog post. It might be that you put a dharma symbol onto your altar. It might be that you write your dharma sentence on a piece of paper and put it on your fridge door. It might be that you take singing classes. It might as well be something completely different…

So let me ask you again: How do you feed your dharma?

My Dream Business – My Vision for the Planet

weisse_lilieMy dream business is to support women, men, teens to blossom into their Dharma, the deep meaning of their being here on Earth… to support them in finding their Gift… to guide them to look behind the facades… to lead them into an investigation of the Mystery of Life and their unique thread woven into the Divine Choreography of Life…. to invite them to consciously live the deeper meaning of their life…

I am doing this business on a local level already, now I am striving to give my gifts internationally: I listen with my ears and my heart. I aim to see behind the facade and mirror the greatness in each person. With mindfulness I speak words from my heart that allow for a new perspective on life experiences – thus the red thread becomes visible and tangible.

I love to witness each person flourishing when they connect with the deeper purpose of their life.

I envision a world where people live their calling consciously. In this world each of us is rooted in one’s deep purpose and thus serving the common good with one’s gifts. With this foundation we feel satisfied and happy which in turn provides us with a healthy and sustainable life style. Each individual consciously living the deeper life purpose contributes to a healthy and prospering planet.

The fragrance of the dharma garden

violette_fuelle_schoener_ausschnittYou can perceive the fragrance already before entering this sacred dharma* garden. Take a deep inhale and savor the melody of flavors of all the beautiful colorful flowers. Each flower is a dharma* blossoming in one of us.

I am happy to welcome you here in the dharma* garden. Please make yourself comfortable. Rest as long as you wish. Let your roots grow here. Every flower needs roots to blossom. Then – in your time – you will start to blossom into your own dharma*.

* dharma is a Sanskrit word with different meanings. I use it to point to a deeper meaning of our being, our personal path in the vast mystery, the red thread through our lives, our steps in the cosmic choreography. Often the words vocation and calling are used in a similar way.
