VEGAN RECIPE: FRUITY OATMILKS

With my todays post I´d like to show you how easy vegan and fruity oatmilks are made. I am not that satisfied with the setting of the picture today and I know I can do better than this. But still I´ll post it anyway because I have a challenge to not be overly pedantic to myself anymore. So here is my far-away-from-satisfying photo (oh gosh, it´s so hard to endure this unprofessional look) and underneath I´ll post the recipe.
(Did I mention I designed the vase myself. I drew patterns, printed them out on thick paper, sew two parts together and cut it in a vase form. There is a glas of water inside that holds the water and the twigs.)


It is very easy to make vegan fruit milks.
You just need fruits like blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and some vegan milk. I made two milks, one with blueberries and one with raspberries and I used rice-milk.
Pour a cup of rice-milk into a higher bowl, throw in a handful of berries and blend it until the fruits are finely chopped. Pour the milk into a nice glas, garnish it with a straw and that´s basically it.
When I want to milk to really be icecold, I´ll use frozen fruits instead of fresh ones.
Have fun trying and enjoying,

PATTERN DESIGN: WHEN YOU SHINE YOUR LIGHT

Gosh, I had a long day teaching today and whenever I leave school after working long hours my head hurts. Luckily I had a good dinner with lovely, healthy oven-baked vegetables and after enjoying that I felt much better again. Good enough to design this pattern of lanterns. I picked asian, joyful colours for this one because my soul truly wants the summer to come back. It is snowing once more here in Germany and we do have it quite cold outside.


I found the quote on pinterest and I like it very much because it is a daily reminder to always let the inner light shine so the right people will see it and find you. Before I started my training as a Conscious Coach I wasn´t happy of attracting a certain type of people. I tried hard to let my light shine but there lived some unhealed topics inside of me that made me get connected with personalities I just didn´t feel good to be around with. I couldn´t explain it back then but today I know why. I didn´t like the issues they carried because they were similar to mine and unconsciously I wanted these topics inside of me to be cured. Years later, still on the road of healing inside, my life feels easier and lighter and people I invite into my life are more the ones that are close to my inner picture. I know, there is still some work to do but I dare to let my light shine bright so I´ll find the ones who inspire me to inspire them as well. I want to invite you to also turn your light on so the right people will find you.
Lots and lots of love,

2019 - THE YEAR OF SPIRITUAL AWAKENING

The new year 2019 is already called the year where more people will reach "spiritual awakening" than ever. As a ConsiousCoach and a shaman-to-be I´m open for topics like that and today I´d like to share this question with you. But first of all "What is the meaning of "awakening" and why in a "spiritual way?"

"Spiritual awakening" means we remember who we truly are in our soul and we remember individually why we are here on this planet.

Let´s look at it from the start.
In it´s origin, a soul is equiped with indidual talents and skills while being "formed". Every soul is (in difference to our body) immortal which means we carry these individual talents and skills with us on all our travels through different kind of lives, forming and shaping these gifts while collecting experiences.

In our former lives we used these talents on a regular basis without wondering or asking ourselves why we´re able to do so. Later on many of us have forgotten about the skills we individually carry because of painful experiences and heavyness we collected on our journeys. Those came down on many of us like severe blankets. We spiritually fell asleep and lost the connection to our truly inner being. Through lots and lots of lives. Until now.

In this incarnation things will be different. Our planet is currently going through the so-called adjustment phase. This means, the earth raises continuously it´s vibration. We do live on this planet and so we are also affected by this because we also have to adjust. All dark experiences we collected inside of us carry low vibrations. When our planet vibrates higher, these dark experiences get tossed up inside of us because they want to leave our system. This process is quite painful for many because everything our souls have seen, experienced or suffered from comes back to us in all different kind of feelings. It affects our well-being physically, mentally and emotionally.

Very often the process of awakening comes with discovering more sensitive sensory experiences. We see, feel, hear, etc. more intense. This can be frightening especially for people who don´t know what is going on. There is no need to worry.
Once we are through the challenging process and brought cure to our experiences (this can take a while) the road is clear for the process of awakening.

This means, we start discovering ourselves with all talents and skills. We´ll be able to see our origin, inner light and we´ll be able to bring this light to a wonderful glow. More and more we start doing things we truly love to do. This is the time we´ll create heaven on earth.

Bye for now and lots of love,

5 THINGS I´D LIKE TO ADD TO MY LIFE

Today I made myself a list about 5 things I´d like to add to my life. I came up with this idea because I had the feeling of spending too much time with the wrong things. So I startet this reminder to keep myself on track.

1. Watch less TV: First of all I desperately want to watch less TV. It´s not that I watch it during daytime but in the evenings even there is nothing on I´m interested it. But still I sit there and look at it instead of spending my time with a good book or some doodling. For bringing my plan to action I bought myself a TV guide for the next two weeks and flipped through it which movies I´d like to see. I discovered that there is only one movie that´s of interest for me which means the TV should be on for only one evening in the next two weeks.

2. Positive thinking: Positive thinking is another major goal of mine. I truly want to do mind hygiene in the next three weeks and transform negative thoughts into positive ones. The brain needs three weeks to practise an exercise until it becomes a routine. So I hope, in three weeks the positive thinking might be a habit and I´m able to use it on a regular base. My daily mantra is: "My life is filled with love, light, ease, wealth and joy".

3. Try new stuff every day: I love the beginner spirit when things feel totally need and I try and fail until I get better. This is so good for the brain and brings new experiences.
For the start I´ll start silkscreenprinting again and secondly I´d love to learn how to pour porcelain. This might be good challenges for the start of a new year.

4. Ask for help more often: This is something I´m hardly able to do. It is so hard for me to ask others to do me a favour. I always have the feeling to give something back to them the minute they did something for me which is quite good to keep the balance.So family, friends, worksmates and neighbours watch out I´m about to come and ask for help (when I´m brave enough).

5. Be braver with my life: Sometimes I don´t show myself, hide my opinion when more people are around or do things I don´t want to do to please others. When I was younger I did this on a normal basis and was hardly able to feel myself. Then I started to listen more and more to myself and my intuition and the more I did this the less I was willing to do compromises. This year will be my even-less-willingness-to-weak-compromises-year and I´ve startet it already. I ask myself what I truly want and then I try to find a good way of reaching it. 2019 will be my year of doing everythings I love to do in my life. I´ll keep you updated on this one.

What are your 5 things you´d like to add to your life?
Lots of love,

VEGAN QUICHE

My taste buds were screaming for a yummy treat so I forced myself happily today to bake this lovely, vegan quiche. I think, it is more than 6 years from now I baked my last quiche (back then still with eggs and cream). Luckily the internet helps finding recipes for all kinds of eating habits and I was thrilled to find one with vegan quiche.

 
Here on this picture I can only show you the last bit of it because there wasn´t much left after we were done with it. So, this is how it is made.You need these following ingredients:

For the dough:
330 g spelt flour (I used freshly grinded spelt flower from my mill)
80 g water
140g cold vegan margarine
1 tsp. salt

For the filling:
200g Pak Choi
150g tomatoes
1/2 onion
1 hot pepper
400g silk tofu
40g  starch
2 tblsp. olive oil
1 tblsp. sunflower seeds
pepper
salt

Prepare the dough and mix all ingredients in a bowl and combine it with the hands or the kneating hook from your kitchen machine until it forms a nice dough ball.
Pack it in foil and let it stay in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile wash and chop the Pak Choi in fine stripes, cut the washed tomatoes and the hot pepper in small pieces and slice the peeled onion in stripes. Mix it all together in one bowl.
Mash the tofu, oil and starch in a seperate bowl until it is perfectly blended. Add lots of pepper and salt until the mix tastes spicy. Pour the tofu mix over the vegetables and stir until everything is well combined. Heat the oven to 180°C. Butter a pie-pan and dust some flour over the butter. Get the dough out of the fridge, remove the foil and roll the dough into the form until the bottom and sides are covered. Pour in the vegetables-tofu-mix and spread it out so the entire pan is filled with the mix.
Sprinkle sunflower seeds on top. I also decorated the Quiche with slices of tomatoes and sprinkles of grounded pepper. Put the pan into the oven and bake it for 30-35 minutes. Careful, it will be very hot after baking time is done. Enjoy it warm with a lovely salad or cold whenever you want - it is up to you. You can also use different vegetables for the filling and don´t have to follow my ingredients list.
Have fun while trying. I´d love to hear how things worked out for you.
Bye for now,

WHATEVER YOU ARE LOOKING FOR

It is time for a new pattern today. This always makes me so very happy, sitting somewhere with a plain white piece of paper and a black marker drawing along. With the help of a good tune I start forgetting the time and things turn to merge into each other until I reach my flow (a mediative state while doodleing along. This time I doodled bows and dots and covered the entire paper with it, then I scanned it and gave the bows different colors until I liked the look.


"Whatever you are looking for is looking for you too" - this quote describes so totally the Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction is one of the more popular of the Universal Laws. It is the belief that positive thoughts bring positive experiences into a person´s life. And negative thoughts bring negative experiences. So it is very important to be aware of the power of our minds because our inner believe system creates our past, our present and our future. Focusing on the good things in life makes us open to invite more of them to us. It is always worth a try.

PANTONE COLOR OF THE YEAR 2019 - LIVING CORAL

A warm and joyful welcome to 2019 to all of you. I hope, you had a great start and made your plans for the new year already. I decided to be brave this year and I truly want to open new doors in design experiences. On my list of goals is silkscreenprinting and I truly want to learn to pour china. And I desperately want to travel a lot. I started this one right away and made a trip with family and friends to Austria. We spent a week in K√§rnten and some of us went skiing up in the mountains. We also had a great time ice-scating on a nearby lake. There wasn´t much snow because the snow clouds got stuck in the alps between Germany and Austria and couldn´t pass the high mountains. It heavily started snowing there for days and unfortunately that was our way back home. We packed our cars with blankets and enough food and drinks and slowly started rolling north with lots of other families. It took us 14 hours to arrive back home (normally it takes 6,5 hours) and we were right on time. After we left, things became worse and the german army had to come for help.

I missed some interesting things while I was gone so I truly need an update with this one. Pantone picked it´s color of the year 2019.  Uhh yeah. This time it is "Living Coral" and even if I don´t have coral clothes in my wardrobe I think it´s a nice color to be around with.

https://mashable.com/article/pantone-color-of-the-year-2019/?europe=true
Pantone explains "Living Coral" as "an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge. It embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment. In reaction to the onslaught of digital technology and social media increasingly embedding into daily life, we are seeking authentic and immersive experiences that enable connection and intimacy. Sociable and spirited, the engaging nature of Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity. Symbolizing our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression. It is a nurturing color that appears in our naturla surroundings and at the same time, displays a lively presence within social media.

Living Coral emits the desired, familiar, and energizing aspects of color found in nature. In its glorious, yet unfortunately more elusive, display beneath the sea, this vivifying and effervescent color mesmerizes the eye and mind. Lying at the center of our naturally vivid and chromatic ecosystem, Living Coral is evocative of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of color".

 So, Living Coral is on the start and now we only have to wait until the first shops sell clothes and accessories in that color. I love, when this happens and still I am also kind of suprised when this influence starts to happen.

Have a happy, living coral day,
