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

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

“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 – Sights and Delights: The Flavors of Istanbul

Processed with VSCO with e6 preset
“Istanbul, a universal beauty where poet and archeologist, diplomat and merchant, princess and sailor, northerner and westerner screams with same admiration. The whole world thinks that this city is the most beautiful place on earth.”

– Edmondo De Amicis

Ladies and gentlemen,

One thing is certain – never have I delivered so many Royal Endeavors signature episodes than in the past year, which, on an individual level, proves my increasing level of self-awareness and demonstrates an unshakable dedication to provide generous knowledge and solid inspiration for my beloved audience.
That is because Royal Endeavors is a lifestyle concept, a unique form of giving what has been taken with an extra touch of artistry, a refined channel to convey insights for impact and subconsciously convert the non-believers to a superior form of being one with their surrounding beauty, a belief that seeks to powerfully support and gently transform the collective perspective on the Art of Living in alignment with Honor, Purpose and Authenticity.

I warmly invite you to walk closely during this fabulous journey, which will be rather short, as I am planning to provide my precious insights for The Ultimate Shopping Guide in Istanbul separately. Please take into account it was probably my third time visiting this breathtaking city, therefore some of its main attractions which I strongly advise you to consider on your first time will not be covered at this time. For example, Sultan Ahmed Mosque, Dolmabahçe Palace, Topkapi Palace, Galata Tower, Süleymaniye Mosque, Basilica Cistern and Maiden’s Tower are an absolute must, although I haven’t included them in the tales of this 6 days tour. Nevertheless, I promise to delight you with the majestic Hagia Sophia, all three Bazaars, a Bosphorus Cruise sprinkled with visual memories, a glimpse of the somptuos Beylerbeyi Palace and the incredible Intangible World Heritage Dervish Experience at Hodjapasha Theatre.

Let’s indulge together in the immense greatness of this unforgettable city, which never ceases to fascinate millions of tourists every year with its majestic architecture and luxurious experiences. One visit is never enough to taste its mystical flavors and enjoy the fabulous sightseeing therefore you can always find another reason to wander around its vibrant streets and connect to the energy of its intense living.

“To the one in the skies, this city must look like a scintillating pattern of speckled glows in all directions, like a firecracker going off amid thick darkness. Right now the urban pattern glowing here is in hues of orange, ginger, and ochre. It is a configuration of sparkles, each dot a light lit by someone awake at this hour. From where the Celestial Gaze is situated, from that high above, all these sporadically lit bulbs must seem in perfect harmony, constantly flickering, as if coding a cryptic message to God.”
– Elif Shafak

Royal Endeavors – Iulia Hasdeu Castle

Processed with VSCO with g8 preset

Hello sweethearts,

Weirdly enough, I keep releasing Royal Endeavors exclusive episodes this summer, much more frequent than before, when I was focused on conveying my message regarding self-esteem, self-image and confidence through the signature Princessa Petra photo shootings.
I assume I have reached that level of inner peace to shift the perspective from showing off myself and my accurate sense of fashion to being of service to others through emotional self-expression and spiritual storytelling. #iLoveMyLife

Thank you for bearing with me – it has been an intense journey matching the spiritual knowledge and divine wisdom I receive through inner channels and personal revelations to the external Universe, which reflected my energy blueprint, the one that was and still is a work in progress, by shedding off the facets of the fragmented reality that I did not own but it was imposed to me, to the level I am currently on – one of positive (self) manifestation, limitless blessings and unconditional love.

The real deal is to have the insight and the desire to overcome limitations is not enough to secure the success of transformation; we need to be ready and aligned with the greatest good – if you are wondering what the stars have in store for you. Apparently all which does not serve me comes tumbling down as I am done going through. I am not energetically welcomed to contexts which defy my freedom and question my frequency. I am denied access to where I do not belong and there is no turning back to the old, as farther I would look back but I don’t.

The particular journey I took to Campina for an extended weekend of team work, in order to obtain my Project Manager certification, recognized by the National Authority for Qualifications (ANC) has played an important role in the realization I have healed from the negativity coming through from a toxic corporate environment which failed to match my positive intentions and growth mindset.
It had validated all my assumptions and past actions of what I thought to be a real team player acting from a genuine positive leadership position and a respectable frame of thought. And that is not all – that is just an expected professional accomplishment matching my experience and expertise – the real deal was having the chance to take a step forward in my career and have the long awaited chance to visit Iulia Hasdeu Castle in Campina, which has been on my bucket list ever since I found out about its fabulous esoteric history and the spiritist activity which it hosted, the first I know to ever have been recorded in Romania.

Royal Endeavors – San Sebastián

#PrincessaPetra x #SanSebastian #GloryToTheHoly #Proph3ticJustice

Ladies and gentlemen,

Bine v-am regasit! Welcome! Bienvenido! Bienvenue! Willkommen! to my latest Royal Endeavors exclusive travel episode dedicated to the lovely seaside resort of Donostia – San Sebastián in Basque Country, a lively slice of Heaven touched by the Sun God that promises to bless you with breathtaking landscapes and incredible heights and sights. I truly hope this article will inspire you to grace the divine SanSe with your presence wholeheartedly, as its positive, uplifting energy had a wonderful effect on my mood and general state of well-being, possibly due to the excellent weather conditions which made all these fabulous pictures possible. If you ask the locals, you will be truly suprised by the fact the weather is not this friendly all the time, therefore I consider us truly blessed to have had such a wonderful experience.

Second of all, since I absolutely love my mood shining through these pics, I would like to dedicate some kind words of appreciation to the All Mighty Universe for the major global events which happened during this passed Gemini season, which made an extraordinary difference, and to show my grattitude for the positive changes I noticed since my 33rd birthday.

You will not believe the feeling of easiness, flow and relief I have since I celebrated my rebirth into Christ Consciousness, the symbolic age of the ascension of Christ into the presence of God in Heaven.

Royal Endeavors – Catedral de Burgos

D518B412-5263-4406-8EBE-A0D8A099A115.jpeg
#PrincessaPetra x #CatedralDeBurgos #GloryToTheHoly #Proph3ticJustice

Dear ladies and gentlemen,

Welcome back to the much expected but less anticipated Royal Endeavors eclectic episode which marks the beginning of the fabulous birthday adventures I recently had in Spain and Basque Country, by starting with a visit at the breathtaking Cathedral of Saint Mary of Burgos.

First I would like to mention this trip is featured and available in the Senior Voyage offer proposals of Christian Tour, one of the most appreciated travel agencies in Romania and the one in charge of most of the cultural trips I had taken with my parents, which we had very much enjoyed.

The greatest thing about these trips, except the destination, are the well-prepared and considerate guides, armed with impressive knowledge, patience and flawless people skills, the optional daily organized trips, which can be quite fast-paced, sometimes exhausting but incredibly rich in cultural and religious tourist attractions and the senior tourists accompanying us, which are absolutely delightful, to my opinion – witty, mannered and high spirited, just as I wish some people of my age would be. Honestly, I always prefer to be surrounded by younger or elder people I have much to learn from.

After waking up at 4 in the morning on the day of the departure, which was not my greatest pleasure (neither 7 or 8 is), we arrived with a Tarom flight to Madrid, where a brand new and fully equipped Christian Tour travel bus was waiting to take us to Comillas, a lovely municipality in Cantabria, northern Spain, set to be our residential town for the next seven days. We were part of an ideal group of 17 people, accommodated in a 54 seats bus so just imagine the discretion, space and comfort each of us had plus time to get to know each other.

With these being said, I will dedicate an exclusive Royal Endeavors blog post to the wonderful Comillas separately, as it hosts several architectural marvels, including one of the few villas designed by Antoni Gaudí outside of Catalonia – the exquisite El Capricho – spacious, intimate and delightful, an exquisite summer residence adorned with the Sun Flower symbol. Stay tuned for more!

Before going any further, deep diving into the historical background of Catedral de Burgos – the first gothic cathedral of the Peninsula – I would like to point out the outstanding psychological factor of seeing such a majestic ornamented interior has on my personal state of being. This is simply a personal experience based on keen observation, combined with a little bit of self-awareness, sprinkled over the refinement of my tastes through time.

I do understand other architectural currents such as minimalism but they are not really my cup of tea. Speaking about tea, the fact that I adore a smokey black African one gives a great suggestion on my preference for any art form which is oppulent, highly decorated, heavy in details, bursting with symbolism and myth in front of my very eyes. This heavy art with a twist of myth and magic is what truly energizes me, especially on my arrival in Spain, after a too early morning start and quite a long journey – not the big empty spaces in fancy “greige” (grey+beige) marble shades but the Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance styles intertwined to shine light upon this  reigning beauty of Castile and León, the impressive Metropolitan cathedral of Burgos, groundbreaking in 1221.

Built over more than four centuries, the Cathedral bears testimony to the creative genius of architects, sculptors, and craftsmen throughout these periods.

The monument is an extraordinary summary of European Gothic influences, which can be admired in every component of the structure, from the facades and chapels to the stained glass windows and sculptures and contains all key attributes to express its Outstanding Universal Value, having been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984.

On the Sparkle of Intuition.


Michelangelo – The Dream of Human Life (after 1533)

“Intuition is seeing with the soul.”
– Dean Koontz

Dear audience,

A series of fortunate events which shaped my perspective in the past few years have inspired the decision to raise awareness on the Sparkle of Intuition, which is an amazing opportunity we are given in order to tap deep into our spiritual senses and connect to an instinctive knowledge which is extremely important in self development. The last experience on this matter was having a little wrench during a call with a recruiter a couple of days ago for a Marketing Copywriter position for a financial product, which honestly does not reflect my sphere of interests. In spite of the short call being polite and decent, I realized she did not say any word about the company she was recruiting for and I was presented with a test to complete in 48 hours. The test itself was not a big problem, considering Google, my skills and imagination, but the shortage of details, such as company presentation, position on market, job description and other important matters were awfully missing. I don’t know about you, guys, but if I am handed over with a test, I need to know who and why I am investing my time and effort for.

The same rationale applies for the countless time consuming recruitment phases in some companies, which for them might count as a “strict” selection but, for me the process reveals a lack of prepared recruiters able to use their knowledge and intuition to find the most suitable candidate for a position. Let’s just think about the availability of junior, middle and top managers to interview a candidate in advanced phases, which suggests the pace of the company is rather slow. I dare say the professional advancement might as well follow this particular trend. What do you think? I decided to deal with my wrench by being thankful for the opportunity and honest in regards to my lack interest for the field, which she appreciated by sharing my opinion the field and product are very important for the creative.

As most of my successful decisions in life were based on intuition, which was behind finding reasonable and quick responses to every challenge, especially in the professional environment, an ability which was enhanced since I have started walking on the path of self-development, I am pleased to follow my annual tradition to dedicate the first post of the May birthday celebration month to my spiritual duties of spreading knowledge and enlightenment. I choose not to discuss the so-called “magical phenomenon” of intuition from a psychological standpoint as the information might become hard to follow and swallow, but rather encourage everyone to practice an exercise of dimming the outside “noise” or distractions in favor of peace and quietness, by shutting down rumination and clearing inner space for that particular sparkle of higher intelligence, commonly called The Intuition.

On the Law of Success.

3415a7d5-df62-487c-a415-8aa68a9ed5e3
Gerald David – Virgin and Child with Four Angels

Dear ladies and gentlemen,

Welcome to the last episode of the Manifestation Trilogy, a mesmerizing spiritual masterpiece dedicated to Success and Prosperity, just in time for the second eclipse of January in the sign of Leo, which marks the grand finale of a challenging eclipse season dating back to 2017. It would be wonderful for all of us to perform a self-awareness exercise and quietly think back of the recurrent theme for the past two years, perhaps of a personal or professional domain which needed special attention, improvement and growth, which has been coming into light especially during planetary events such as full moons and eclipses. 

Taking into consideration the subject I chose to dedicate my Time, Attention and Energy through this blog post, while wrapping up the Manifestation Trilogy, my reccuring theme was Success and the large spectrum of emotions governed by its achievement, one of them being the fear of success. 

I am aware most people fear failure but since this particular word does not resonate with my system of beliefs, I have to admit I have been standing in my own path to success for the past few years for fear I would loose the privileges of being (care)free and doing whatever I want, in front of what I erroneously considered to be “serious” responsibility. 

It was revealed to me through the Spiritual Laws book written by Kurt Tepperwein that I might have overreacted and erroneously assumed so based on the examples around me because life is ultimately a dance, just a game we effortlessly play during our mission on Earth, if we respect and live by the Laws of the Universe, an initiative which I resonate with profoundly.

I have been experimenting with life by exploring its endless possibilities and therefore deepening my wisdom and understanding through the Power of Choice and the Law of Action and Reaction. The truth is, in order to disolve our programmed tendency towards attachment, by reaching to the core of (Higher) Self, the Essence or the Divine Source of Being, we must peel off all forms of attachment, which we are aware to be a great source of sorrow and suffering, as it consciously sabotages the “Art of Letting Go” gracefully and the choice of going “with the flow” – for the past few years I chose a lifestyle I could leave at any second without looking back and trust me, it is a truly rewarding feeling simply to know I CAN.

On the Law of Abundance.

0FAC430A-9670-49D2-9143-4FD4247DEA76.jpeg
Simon Vouet – Prudence Leading Peace and Abundance

My esteemed audience,

Welcome to my exclusive blog post dedicated the Law of Abundance.
Buckle up – it is going to be an amazing ride, brilliantly sesoned with personal tales of decluttering and deprogramming all outdated thoughts, just in time for the thrilling second eclipse of January, which I believe to be an exciting opportunity for all of us to shine. Just remember, playing small does not serve the world.
I could not think of a better time to deliver this spiritual masterpiece than today, Wednesday – my favorite day – the 16th of January, just the day after a dreamy winter day sprinkled with an abundance of fluffy snowflakes falling down the sky, adorning the grey streets of Bucharest. The weather is decently warm and I believe even Joy greatly enjoys the fluffy snow.
In spite of what I assume to be some challenging traffic conditions, it feels quite magical to synchronize thoughts with the Universe. What a wonderful time to be awake and alive, isn’t it? By the way, did you know China’s cotton seeds which landed on the Moon the 3rd of January have just sprouted? Spectacular.

“Plant seeds of happiness, hope, success, and love; it will all come back to you in abundance. This is the law of nature.”

– Steve Maraboli

When it comes to abundance, we each have a different perspective corresponding to it, or better said “attached”, which could differ a lot considering the personal background, education, experience, expertize and most importantly, personal choice (I invite you to step into your power, ladies and gentlemen).
For some of us, abundance might refer to money and fortune, while for others the concept reveals the symbolic significance of emotional and spiritual wealth. I have recently come to the conclusion the spiritual wealth must manifest itself into the 5D reality, just as fast as synchronicities occur and manifestation of thoughts takes place every moment for those who have leveled up to their true feelings of worthiness and power. I will offer you a surprisingly simple example which most people would evaluate from a different point of view, neglecting the large spectrum of possibilities and choices which can occur by simply switching the perspective to a different angle, anytime an option or result seems unappropiate for you. Let’s embrace diversity of thought and welcome the fresh breeze of modern christianity, as interpreted by yours truly, QueenP.

“When you are grateful, fear disappears and abundance appears.”

– Anthony Robbins
