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 #2

Petra_BG_OF5

Hello darlings,

I am back to the journaling game – the urge is strong. I might as well start my first book. I need to strengthen this ability to channel thoughts into writing, so I can release residual emotions and clear my mind off the negativity suffocating social media during these times of uncertainty.
In spite of the calm reigning over my consciousness, I must train myself to de-escalate issues on all levels of conscience.
I had a strange dream last night – half of it was a terrible nightmare involving dead puppies and something weird crawling on my arm, which was so real that I had to wake up. That is probably the effect of the constant exposure to the news and aggressive information, most of it fake, distributed online. The spring equinox mist have contributed to this massive emotional clearing as well.
That is how a global crisis must feel like to my subconscious – as an attack to my innocence and faith.
Please take mental hygiene seriously during this wicked times – most of you are vulnerable to such negative exposure, not aware of it and possibly not well equipped to face this dramatic psychological pressure, which, even worse, could be easily passed on to others, just like all kinds of disturbing conspiracies are circulating on Facebook.
How do you think panic and fear is helpful, and not prevention, decency and having a clear head about it?
What do you believe a long lasting “flight or flight” danger exposure can do to your immune system?
Well, now you can all actually see for yourselves why I have been preaching about Spiritual Awareness and Education for the past years. It can shield your mind from information bombing and protect your overall health.
I advise you to listen to this podcast of Dr. Joe Dispenza for Mindvalley for further details on how to eliminate diseases, perhaps you could prevent them from now.
Nevertheless, my dream ends well.
I find myself talking to someone before entering an electronic music party in a large sphere, on top of a very large tower.
Keinemusik was playing but all I wanted to know is if you could see the stars from inside. The answer was yes.
This reminded me of the three things you need to be in life: well-protected, well-respected and well-connected.
Perhaps I am shielded from bullshxt in my own little bubble but I am definitely aware of my impact and influence.
Life is still good beyond everything we tell ourselves.

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.”

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.”

Ladies and gentlemen,

Following the resounding success of the previous Royal Endevors exclusive episode, dedicated to the marvelous experience La Conac by AIO Living, comes this fabulous edition devoted to my recent family adventure to Horezu and its beautiful surroundings, fully charged with historic symbolism and a deep sense of authenticity.

In this Royal Endevors episode, I will proceed to magically enchant you with the breathtaking view of Museum Complex of Maldaresti, the splendid interiors of Horezu Monastery, exclusively captured due to a striking synchronicity, all followed by fortune tales of the lovely dinner we had at Pastravaria Romani, a superb location offering a single dish – menu of the day – including the one of a kind experience of chosing your own fish out of a pond in order for it to be freshly cooked.

“Escape from complicated life! Take refuge in simple life! You will find three treasures there: Healthy body, peaceful mind and a life away from ambitious fools!”
