Crisis is the Best Coach #5

Hello darlings,

Just in case you’ve missed me, I am constantly at home, with intermitent pauses of going out to take Joy around for a short walk in the neighbourhood.

The truth is I have been quite busy lately, taking online courses and working on the Interior Design Advanced Course, which is slightly more demanding than I expected. Not the styling itself or finding real products to fit my vision, but the dimensions and calculations are not my cup of tea.
I could certainly get better at them, no doubt, but it will take some time to furbish my skills and I am not sure I would like to invest it in this particular aim towards excellence. Perhaps real practice would be more appropiate in this case and I have big plans for my space(s) of living.
Let’s say I wish to make every corner of my tiny Bucharest studio instagrammable so that’s quite a complex mission, I assume.

The best thing about the course is that I work with experienced trainers and colleagues who are willing to guide me and provide their expertise, which is comforting and delightful.
I also cliqued with some of them immediately which has rarely happened to me lately. It’s a good sign I am getting back to that community feeling, which I missed out because of my former burn out. I am very glad that challenge is finally over.

I also seem to lack interest in taking new pics of myself, expecially selfies, just to keep up to virtual norms of social exposure.
What can I say – you must clearly take my word my beauty has remained unaltered since the isolation/quarantine has begun.
Now I even have more time to put on face masks and body creams, while I use no coverage/foundation/concealer.
It’s a win-win situation – I am satisfied with having my skin taking a relaxing break from make up and grateful I finally found a good reason not to touch it 🙂

I also can’t say I miss my old life since for the past year I’ve been successful at keeping myself isolated while I got my shxt together, although I do feel a new sense of purpose arising and a new perspective of life emerging.
I am glad it is applicable to everyone, even if this change is initiated “the hard way” – I was feeling quite lonely and out of tune because everyone was moving with the speed of light, while I was making efforts to stay still and listen to myself.
I feel an alignment taking place.

What we all can do during this time is a little visualization exercise called Life Vision, which is simple yet deeply positive and empowering. We can start by collecting a series of pics, quotes, words, anything that can relate to the future desire for ourselves once the quarantine is over. They can be related to food, workout, vacations, moods – anything that sparks joy and brings relief.
I use this as a valuable coaching tool, which is also fun and easy if you have a Pinterest account, Power Point and time to do a little matching game.
It’s a brilliant practice to keep the mind fit and the Law of Attraction working, moreover since we are not on the run anymore – now we can use the Law of Allowance for Manifestation to reach us.

Make a wish! xoxo

Crisis is the Best Coach #1

C6D19DDC-31AC-4448-A262-3BEC4433913E

Hello darlings,

Although I have promised to deliver daily #CrisisIsTheBestCoach insights, I probably won’t, but still – let’s keep this space extra positive – I am sure if I don’t deliver daily words of wisdom, it’s probably because I am involved in a thorough self-education process.
You see, this is the best time not to waste it – almost everybody is at home, complaining about their uncomfortable lives even before interrupted by the global crisis. Now they wish they would have them back – that’s precisely why spiritual teachings preach and praise the art of GRATITUDE.
Newsflash, ladies and gentlemen, if you don’t like something, just change it.
Maybe not now, because you are in quarantine, but you surely have a lot of time to think about how you will shape your future reality.
Also, there are no more services delegated to outer sources – skills and creativity should come first at play in order to adapt and harmonize to this mindblowing context.
By the way, I can’t wait for this situation to be over so I could cut my hair.
I still need a professional touch to my image but while I am stuck at home, I will do my cosmetic maintainance by myself – it is what it is and my hair doesn’t really matter right now.
Why should I let it disturb me?
This attitude would totally work if I still had toxic people in my life – I also would have cut them off. Lucky me.
However, take my advice and see how you feel about certain people missing from your life, now that you are stuck in isolation and quarantine. It’s a good time to see if you are stuck with the right person/people, don’t you think?
The pandemic context has totally caught me by suprise, as I couldn’t have imagined the whole world would pause and actually reflect the mood I was in for the past year and a half. I hope everyone also reflects ON it. There is time for everything.
It is impressive to see a magical bitch slap given to fast living, fast food, fast everything and especially consumerism.
So many businesses, some not contributing at all to the world’s well-being and best interest, are challenged by this new economic threat – who would have thought industries, business owners and entrepreneurs would get this extra chance to reconsider their mission, vision, products and services? What about meaning, purpose and contribution? Those should be the new foundation of the New World arising from shedding the fake conditioning.
How anyone and everyone can make the most out of this disturbing crisis?
That is the question you could answer, if you all have the time to think.
I hear dolphins reappeared in Venice and the water is finally clear. People see the sky again and the air is fresh and clean. We can even hear the birds singing.
But still… In these troubled times, honesty matters the most  – who are you with?
I finally have a clear mental space to proceed taking the HarvardX Course online on Omens, Oracles & Prophecies.
What a great time to be alive, isn’t it?

7 Effective Habits of Highly Spiritual People


“I wanted to call a time out, to demand that everybody just STOP until I could understand everything.”

– Elizabeth Gilbert

Ladies and gentlemen,

Welcome to my new delightful spiritual endeavors episode, dedicated to the effective habits of highly spiritual people. Given the global context, I am confident these habits could serve as inspiration for acknowledging the importance of having a flexible mindset and the necessity of shaping mindful habits, in order to enhance mental fitness, increase the level of spiritual success and positively impact to the quality of life in general.

“My new deliberate and slower pace has created a higher quality in my experiences.”
– Lisa J. Shultz

This episode comes as the appropriate creative closure to the inspiration received from one of my IG contacts, who is a performance coach, personally positioned quite at the opposite end of the emotional spectrum from myself.
As a transformational coach, I consider myself to be in tune with my emotions, flexible with my own goals and expectations and patient in regards to the estimated timeline “scheduled” by my clients’ for their deep transformations. The spiritual principles I follow comply to the universal rules of “to each its own”, everyone “at its own pace” and everything “in its own time”.
Even though time as we know it is a man made concept, the only control we have is the one over ourselves, our habits and on how we decide to spend it.
We also control our reaction to surprises, unscheduled events and change of plans.

“Some of us would take our time, if we knew that we are rushing to our deaths.”
– Mokokoma Mokhonoana

I would also like to inspire my clients to allow the necessary time for changes to unfold and transformation to occur at its own convenience  – the only certainty in life is death itself and we definitely must not hurry towards this predictable end.

“Sometimes I think there are only two instructions we need to follow to develop and deepen our spiritual life: slow down and let go.”
– Oriah Mountain Dreamer

Given the global context of a pandemic requiring us to slow down, stay inside, avoid social contact and prioritize hygiene and self-care, I believe we are quite privileged to possibly witness a massive awakening, both at personal and at professional/business levels, as extremely uncomfortable issues, bottled up for years or even decades, suddenly begin to stir up and present themselves to us in a striking, psychologically violent manner, during the times we feel most vulnerable.
Change is not a comfortable process, unless it is voluntary – imagine its emotional and spiritual impact if it is being ignored for ages, while it becomes highly necessary at a global scale.
The pressuring issues arising from the ongoing crisis relate to financial security, back-up plans, resilience, meaning and purpose (of industries, businesses, jobs, facilities, entrepreneurship) AND survival instincts. They also relate to the social aspects and the impact of these circumstances on humanity, highlightening the need for compassion, mindfulness, thoughtfulness, solidarity, support and respect towards oneself and others.
“Crisis is the best Coach” – this will be the name of my daily updates provided virtually in the upcoming isolation time.

“Speed of life is a killer not a healer,
so slow down to bloom like a flower.”

– Debasish Mridha

“Knock, And He’ll open the door
Vanish, And He’ll make you shine like the sun
Fall, And He’ll raise you to the heavens
Become nothing, And He’ll turn you into everything.”

– Jalal Ad-Din Rumi

My beloved audience,

Welcome to another brilliant “Spiritual Fashion” enlightening episode, signed by your Hypeness, The One and Only, Higher Self(ish w/ her Energy), Queen P, hosted by the dazzling We Cafe, a cozy little piece of Heaven which accomodates creative evenings in the heart of Bucharest, this by taking into consideration I do find Tarot and Therapy to be among the extremely rewarding and highly creative fields of expertise, whose purpose is no different than my personal contribution to Humanity – self-realisation, growth and empowerment.

For this very special ocassion, I chose to dress up lightly, showcasing the impact of bold colors in creating a streetstyle that could match my increasing interest for eclectic harmony, one which could complement the warm and welcoming space of We Cafe with nothing but grace and beauty.
I am particularly pleased of how I refrained myself from adding too many eye-catching details to this styling, so I could accentuate the high class elegance of the Pringle of Scotland cashmere two tone schal. This reminds me of the greatest time I had in Scotland, an unforgettable journey and a spectacular country I would love to see again.

“Persistence. Perfection. Patience. Power. Prioritize your passion. It keeps you sane.”
– Criss Jami

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am pleased to introduce the first photo shooting of 2020 highlightening the fabulous collaboration with my favorite photographer, Volker Vornehm, after an year (+) absence from the attention of social media.
This enlightening edition was brilliantly hosted by one of the most surprising interior decor vintage shops in Bucharest, Circa 1703-3071, a fabulous treasure hunt hidden in the proximity of Club Fabrica, where you can both admire and purchase a bold collection of peculiar ceramics and one-of-a-kind glass chandeliers and lamps, which can easily become the central piece and the big IT in your ambIenT.
It won’t hurt if you try to cast an eye around in this majestic boutique and meet & greet the lamp master – Laura Paraschiv, who was a flawless host and very sweet!

I must admit I stepped into 2020 with a big hit, as I graced Volker’s invitation to make the first working Monday of the year a memorable win, even though doing what I love meant waking up at 4 in the morning to catch the train to B City for this shooting only. After a three hours train ride, two cups of coffee and a rise of my self-esteem, I was sure I can make a blast of what I’ve got, in spite of little sleep and only two days of wardrobe brainstorming.
I might have borrowed 3/4 of my outfit from Queen Mum because style runs in the family – the skirt, the shawl and the belt do not pertain to me, but with a great chance of becoming so, if I insist.

“A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds.”
– Francis Bacon

Have the Courage to be Disliked

“Leaders lead in face of discomfort, leaders lead in face of disagreement, leaders lead in face of breakdown.
It’s not a convenient job, it’s a job of conviction and service.”

– Lisa Nichols

My beloved audience,

Absorbed by the delicate remembrance of royal endeavors, bathing in the afterglow of my impressions, I have disregarded the trials and tribulations of my evolution, which deserves a warm and honest praise, without a shadow of complaint – this is a future forward fashion throwback to the hype of the former days,  as my signature never goes out of style and time is just man made.

I have decided to celebrate my personal development, professional accomplishments and wellbeing through this distictive photoshooting with the world famous photographer Cornel Lazia, an artist devoted to surprise the fierceful elegance of my presence behind a healthy dosis of multi-layered animal prints.
The truth is it takes courage to unfold a character, as well as a public dosis of stamina and I have come a long way not to step into the power of my greater purpose, to which the whole Universe resonates.

I have started blogging three years ago, with three eyes on my mind to glow, since public displays of investment are quite low and shallow. My mission has always been to inspire a generous wave of personal growth, as each stepping stone we face births the context in which we become more. Some of you know I have always been more – way too much to handle when the less is more. I can’t even complain because fortune favors the bold and my voice rings the bells into the depth of your souls. That’s a gift only I can endure.

This is the story of how I grow, glow and flow.

Royal Endeavors – Istanbul – The Ultimate Shopping Guide

Processed with VSCO with c8 preset

“If one had but a single glance to give the world, one should gaze on Istanbul.”
– Alphonse de Lamartine

My esteemed audience,

I am thrilled to welcome you to the final part of the discovery journey delving deep into the fullfiled wishes of the mesmerizing city of Istanbul – I promise this enchanting post to be a delight for the sight and food for your souls. Given my latest tendency to sprinkle wits and bites of conscious shopping over my Royal Endeavors events, while still promoting chic means of sustainability one can easily afford, I made the commitment to deliver an exclusive www. episode on the Ultimate Guide of Shopping, dedicated to the art lovers and thrill seekers willing to expand their horizons and beautify their homes.

In a world struggling to overcome the last bursts of consumerism shoved down our throats through aggressive media and misinformation, the art of making conscious choices becomes a gift, a blessing and a purpose.
I honor the difference of opinions and perspectives but that doesn’t have to lead to a lack of personality while emphasising a casual taste just to fit into a predefined mould, therefore I am willing to promote handicrafts which will definitely capture everyone’s attention, rich in aspects regarding tradition and symbolism.

I believe an elegant manner to support the countries we are visiting is to invest in their local services and manufacturing, as means to keep traditional art alive and solid. I kindly advise you not to settle for the Chinese cheaper souvenirs, when you can make memories count with handcrafted ceramics and luxurious textiles.

Every choice matters and traveling certainly opens the universe of self-awareness, deepening senses, refining tastes and strengthening cultural awareness and diversity, thus contributing to a country’s sense of sustainability.

Once you witness the beauty of Turkey in all its glory, it will be hard to leave the sweet memories behind without purchasing some Turkish souvenirs to spark conversations and act as a magical portal that is reminiscent of the wonders you had experienced.
Please remember everything is negotiable to an extend of -50%, unless clearly specified otherwise.

“All other cities are mortal, but I think Istanbul shall be eternal as long as mankind exists.”
– Petrus Gyllius
