Why is it so important for me to share all of this?
“What happened with her?!” and where is it all coming from?
Taking that step, going to the Ashram, practicing Yoga, going vegan and surrendering to what life had brought to me changed me and my whole life completely. It made my life so beautiful and so much happier that i feel the need to say thank you!
I want to share my experiences to also make your life happier and to give you some inspiration where to find knowledge to grow. maybe some parts of my experiences find you just right and we can reach together a higher state of consciousness.
How did that happen?
By following my heart… first to Bangkok .. what brought divine love into my life and following this love .. yoga came to me.
since i started following my heart and soul I don’t eat the same way and I don’t sleep the same way i used to do.
My thoughts are different, my commitment and attitude towards other living beings has changed. I don’t work in the same profession anymore, I don’t drink or smoke and instead of going out late i go up early in the morning – a goal i thought I would never be able to achieve in life! I look and feel different and i can say i am on my way, trying to become the best version of myself.
Until i changed my diet I always had problems with my stomach and digestion. Sometimes i had cramps so bad that i almost lost consciousness. Since i ‘m vegan i never had them again. My skin is much better and my hair looks shiny. I have more power and it elates me to eat clean, saving animals and the environment.
People keep asking me isn’t it hard to be vegan?
I feel like
taking this decision made my life so much easier!
There are no more question running through my mind ‘oh should i have another cake or i feel like ice cream..’ It is a commitment that stops several dialogues in your head.. because you already made up your mind and decided! You took a choice how to live your life and you are committed! No room for excuses or discussions with yourself.
When i got the knowledge about why going vegan it was only one thought that activated the whole process. Understanding why!
I CLAIM IT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH SELF-LOVE.
After reading and studying about nutrition and plant-based diet I had to admit that
-honestly- I love my self too much than to harm my body and system every day for “brain” pleasure and I never ever missed something.. That’s the weirdest part! Normally i expected cravings and feeling sad for not having something anymore but honestly i never felt sorry that i am not having something anymore!!! It is so easy to replace food and it became a challenge in almost everything i do…
Cooking dishes as similar as possible to how i used to cook (before I lived on a plant based diet) and being so proud that things feel, taste and look the same! i promise You can copy everything!
Also trying to avoid plastic as much as possible can get addictive 🙂
So the sooner we start learning how we do that best – start copying and become more aware of our environment!
the sooner the better and the earth can start healing again.
BUT NOW tHE most important part is … EVERYONE can do that!
I am nothing special. Everyone is capable of committing, taking a decision and making a choice whether you want to adapt something new in life or not. Actually I am pretty lazy and i honestly don’t like to work out hard. But i COMMITTED and I stay determined. I committed myself to yoga and to my practice and that brought all the change in my life. Sometimes i look in the mirror and still need to get used to this new self, because it took only 5 months. I lost almost 10 kilos, gained muscles I´ve never had before and shed my skin.
I really want to encourage you to look into your life and into yoga philosophy, nutrition and healthcare to become the best version of yourself! I wish i could show you all individually how easy and how much fun it is! if you need help along the way i will support you – if you want to!
So please feel free to contact me anytime!
in my opinion it all starts with love. Self-love and love towards others. Love who you are, what you do, what surrounds you and what accompanies you along the way. Sit down and reflect.. what do you love and what not? Then take action. Change the things you don’t love and replace them with things, people, places and moments that brings joy, happiness and peace in your life and they will attract more…
That’s the law of the universe!
Love to you all
Becoming vegan was probably the best decision i took in my life.
Honestly - it fills me up with joy every single day and i am proud that i already "digested" the great knowledge why and how to live on a plant-based diet and that i was able to understand and embrace it.
It all started with moving to the Ashram where they only provided nourishing strict vegan food, based on vegetables grown in their own garden, next to the property. Of course they also educated us why Yogis choose to live a vegan lifestyle and what it means in terms of health and the environment.
One afternoon we watched 'Cowspiracy' and it is hard to explain what happened in that 2 hours. It changed EVERYTHING .
I took a decision. I committed . For life.
Since that day i never ever questioned that decision.
But a flame inside of me has arouse, that desperately wants to share the KNOWLEDGE and helps this world to make a change.
Because if we are not waking up as soon as possible and stop consuming the planet and their creatures we won't be able to stay here much longer. Looking into this, as scary as it sounds is so important! We need to become aware of what is happening outside of our little lifes. So i made it my mission to Help the change!
I stay positive and hope for the good in humankind.
I am pretty sure that one day Meat will get labelled same as cigarettes! It always makes me smile imaginING that processed Meat and Fish would also be stored behind the cashier with white covers so you wouldn't see the actual products anymore.
I don't think it will be exactly like that but i am pretty sure the day will come where we find a big fat information sticker on meat and processed products indicating the dangers of consuming them.
so WHY should we stop eating animal products ? Because consuming meat and animal protein is not healthy for human beings!
if you need PROof, just open your mouth in front of a mirror. our teeth are not designed to eat flesh from any other being. But furthermore its the unhealthy acids that are being produced while you ARE DIGESTing ANIMAL PRODUCTS. They are getting toxic and take "forever" to be processed in your stomach. Also the length of our INTESTINE differs to the ones animals have inside their body. ours is much longer, so in the process of digestion the meat starts rotting in your intestine long before its getting fermented..
The world Health Organization classifies processed meat as group one carcinogen, the same group that contains cigarettes, asbestos and plutonium. They found a direct link to consuming processed meat and cancer, looking over 800 studies from ten different countries. That means one serving of deli meats daily (50 gram portion of processed meat) increases the risks of COLO-RECTAL cancer by 18 %.
Consuming animal products is the cause of many severe diseases people are suffering from nowadays. my grandfather died from the major implications caused by meat and dairy consumption and i am sure everybody knows someone who died or suffered from these consequences.
These Diseases only started existing when we started eating processed animal products daily and increased the servings per day to a RIDICULOUs amount.
Many people tell me that mankind is supposed to eat meat and that we have been hunters for decades. WELL YES THAT IS TRUE BUT PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS MORE precisely..
When we were hunting it wasn't always easy to find wild animal. Sometimes man were out in the woods for several days and when they got something it was hardly enough for everyone. So they shared small portions. Pregnant women got a bigger serving and also children who were in their grow process needed a more protein and received more. So in the meantime, when there was no meat available, the ate nuts, berries and plants. The amount of animal products they consumed was rare and their way of living (running, hunting, fishing, carrying firewood) is
C O M P L E T E L Y different to the way we live today. Today people start their day with so much animal protein for breakfast that a Stone Age man would have had in a week.
The Organization classifies red meat as group two carcinogen.
So how is it possible that also kids are allowed to eat Bacon, Ham, Sausages and Salami, being declared as unhealthy as smoking cigarettes by the world health organization?
In the 60s no one would have ever believed that one day people are not allowed to have a smoke and a beer after work in their FAVORITE pub anymore. Now it is impossible just thinking about lighting a cigarette somewhere inside and smoker nowadays feel rather isolated standing outside alone.
This change took only a few years.. the same will happen with eating meat (i am just curious how long it will take ;))
Therefore we need to educate ourselves,
share the knowledge and stop consuming animal products!
