All of us came to the Earth with so many amazing gifts which are unique and valuable. There has never been anybody like you and there is never going to be. Therefore it’s important to awaken your creative genius that possesses these gifts.
Your dreams matter and your creativity is an internal compass leading you to your beautiful and ‘one in a lifetime’ life’s purpose on this planet. We all have a purpose here and that purpose is unique to every single one of us.
How do you find it?
The simplest way to start discovering your purpose is by focusing on things you truly love, the things you do by choice and bring the most joy to your soul. This is when your creativity comes in. Begin nourishing the creative part of yourself by making space for your inner artist to come out.
I’ve created a short, 4 minutes video which includes positive affirmations and it can assist you with your creativity.
Listen to it whenever you need a little inspiration or help with your creative projects or when you feel you are ready to step into your truth and find your unique life’s purpose. I really believe it can help you awaken that beautiful part of you which is full of wonderful, fresh and creative ideas.
The truth is, in the last few weeks, I’ve been feeling a little low. One of my friendships ended suddenly and the whole situation left me emotionally drained and disappointed. If that wasn’t enough, several other things have been going wrong from having quite a few unexpected expenses to an overload of work.
After being in a pretty low state of mind for a while, I’ve decided to step out of the self-pity zone and finally act. So, I began by cleaning up my place, getting rid of many things I no longer needed. I suddenly felt a breath of fresh air touching my mind and soul. I felt calmer and more at peace.
We all need clarity of mind to be able to notice what really matters in life. This allows us to breathe easily too and finally realise what to keep and what to discard. Only then, we are able to get a direction where our life is currently heading, and whether we may need a course correction or a complete redirection.
Is your mind cluttered?
If you feel like your mind is cluttered, definitely give a little spring cleaning a go. This can mean many things to many people, but whatever that means to you, it will do a world of good.
An actual cleaning can be the first step
Wash your windows, clean your bathroom, tidy up your desk, re-organise your wardrobe, vacuum your apartment, throw out the rubbish and the list can go on. Do it today and notice how you felt before and after.
Donate clothes and things you no longer need to charity
We all have clothes, books, artefacts and so many things we no longer need. Consider making donation to a charity. So, if they are in good condition, give them away instead of throwing them away. You will not only do a good deed and brighten up someone else’s day, but at the same time, you will make space for something new to come into your life.
A few minutes of stillness and deep breathing a day can change your perspective on life
Pause several times a day, close your eyes and take a nice, long, deep breath. Tune into the moment you are in and make an intention that every time you breathe out, you are going to let go any unwanted energies, thoughts and feelings that are no longer serving you. This can only take a couple of minutes of your day, but trust me, it will bring more peace and clarity into your life.
Write your thoughts down
Get your notebook/journal and write your thoughts down. Express your feelings onto the pages and be very honest with yourself. Write down everything that has been bothering you and you don’t feel like sharing with anyone. We all have our little secrets and things that we worry about nobody knows about or would understand. Every time I write things down, and get my thoughts out of my head on a piece of paper, I feel so much lighter and so much peace and clarity showers my mind and soul.
So, I hope this helps and if you have any questions or comments, please share them in the comment section below.

This week, I’m excited to share with you a new video (linked below) with affirmations for self-love. What are positive affirmations? Positive affirmations are positive statements that can boost your confidence, raise your energy levels and make you feel happy when repeated over and over again.
I have been introduced to affirmations years ago by a beautiful, transformational teacher Louise Hay. When I first read her book, You can heal your life, it made a big shift in my life and I became very aware of my day to day language (the words I was speaking and the thoughts I was thinking).
We often don’t realise that our thinking impacts our outside experiences. When you think a thought and you put a feeling underneath that thought…this creates a vibration. This vibration affects the entire Universe (believe it or not). Louise says in her book: “Every thought you think and every word you speak is creating your future!” From my own experience, I 100% agree. Using positive affirmations on a daily basis can shift your perception, and your life can start to change in an instant. But you really have to do the work. It doesn’t happen overnight, although miracles happen when the seed is planted.
Positive ~ Personal ~ Present Tense
They are a few very important points you need to know before you start using positive affirmations. First, they have to be: Positive, Personal and in a Present tense. I call it 3P’s!
Let me give you an example! Affirmation: “I am healthy and I am happy now!” It is positive, it is personal, because it applies to your life, and it is in the present tense because you are affirming that it is happening right now. Be aware of using affirmations in the future tense, something like: “One day, I will be successful” That’s a future statement, which may never happen, and this way you are only delaying the success to flow into your life now. A better way of saying it would be: “I am successful in all areas of my life!” By repeating this kind of affirmation, you are saying YES to the Universe and the abundance can flow into your life now. But here is another important part: If you want your affirmations to work, you have to Feel the words you are saying! You have to feel healthy now, you have to feel prosperous now, you have to feel successful now, you have to feel beautiful now. Feel those feelings NOW! This is one of the major keys to bring what you desire into your life.
Give yourself time
Start forming this new habit and begin talking to yourself positively, and at the same time, feel what you are saying. In the beginning, it may feel like a lie, but after some time it will become more natural for you. Have fun in this process and enjoy the new positive changes that are taking place in your life.
So, this is just a little introduction to positive affirmations. In the video below, are affirmations for self-love. Listen to it whenever you feel you need to give yourself some extra boost of love and care. It’s only over 3 minutes long, but I believe it can help you shift your energy and teach how to love and accept on a deeper level. Remember that loving yourself is not selfish. It’s an act of self-appreciation and healthy respect towards your beautiful self.
People are often hard on themselves for making mistakes. They talk about them over and over again, wasting their precious energy which they could invest towards something more meaningful. But what they don’t realise, it is actually their mistakes that can help them level up this game called life. If it wasn’t for mistakes, you could stay at the same place your whole life.
I’m looking at mistakes from a different perspective now. They are helping me move forward and learn something new every single day. In fact, I am grateful for them.
Today, I want to encourage you to start looking at your mistakes and the so-called failures differently. I want you to start celebrating them because they are teaching you so much about yourself and are co-currently helping you bring some wonderful opportunities to your life.
Mistakes are your greatest teachers
Don’t be afraid of failing. Instead, look at failing from a different angle. Be grateful that you are learning something new and once you learn it you don’t have to, hopefully, repeat the same lesson again. Start looking at your mistakes as teachers, which are guiding you to the right path.
Keep moving forward
I failed so many times in life and I’m still going to. But at the same time, I’m grateful for all of those experiences. I wouldn’t change them. They’re always teaching me so much about myself and my life. They’re teaching me what is important and what isn’t. Learn from your mistakes and failures and always keep moving forward.
Relax more into life
You are always learning and you are always growing and you are going to be, for the rest of your life. Embrace this knowledge and let go of everything that holds you back. Stop being hard on yourself, it’s a waste of your energy. And I don’t mean to stop trying to do your best or stop working on yourself. What I mean is, stop punishing yourself for every single mistake you make. You’ve learned something from it and now it’s time to move on and focus on your present and the future. You are a work in progress and you are always going to be. Nobody has accomplished it all, nobody has done it all, nobody knows it all. So relax more into life and enjoy it. After all, it’s such an exciting and adventurous journey.
Do you feel that you have nothing in common with some of your friends anymore? You used to spend so much time together and now you don’t even feel like picking up the phone when they call. Maybe you used to be inseparable, but now you have nothing to talk about. You feel that you don’t want to be investing your time into this friendship anymore. You make excuses that you are too busy to go out, even to respond to a text or a phone call. All that you have in common now is the past.
I want to put your mind at ease because it’s perfectly okay to feel like this. It is perfectly okay to outgrown your friends, even to part ways for good. You are always growing, expanding, learning, unlearning and this creates change. Your friend is changing too and what you might have had in common in the past has faded away. Your friendship may never be the same. You are both completely different and this is fine too.
I can fully relate to the above because I’ve been there and I am also going through something similar as I write these lines. There are still certain people in my life I know aren’t on ‘my frequency’ anymore and I find difficult to let go of. I care about them, I care about their feelings, but something is telling me that they are not my kind of people anymore. The feelings I’m having are powerful signals coming from my soul that something needs to change.
The friendship has served its purpose
Everyone comes to our life for a reason. Some come to teach you some powerful lessons, others come to teach you difficult lessons. Some teach you about truth, others about love, dreams and about what really matters. And if someone just came into your life as a proof that you don’t want to be hanging around them anymore? Then, learn from that lesson, let them go and make space for more meaningful relationships.
I believe that change is good. Change can clear the path and bring something fresh and new to you. This applies to your friendships too. When you don’t want to be connecting with someone anymore, that’s a sign. A powerful sign from your soul. Embrace it and be brave to do what’s right for you.
Celebrate relationships that make you feel good
And of course, celebrate all the amazing people in your life now. Express your gratitude to them. Tell these special people that you love them and appreciate them and that you are very thankful to have them in your life.
A thought to keep
It isn’t wise to continue friendships, just because you’ve known these people for life. If the friendship doesn’t feel right anymore, let it go. If you’ve been feeling emotionally drained for years while being surrounded by these people, you need to honestly reevaluate whether you want to still include them in your circles. This isn’t selfish, but it’s an act of self-love.
Most importantly, focus on what really matters to you. When you begin to fill yourself up, you’ll start feeling good about yourself and then you will start attracting people that will mirror your beautiful state. There are the people who are meant to be sharing this incredible life’s journey with you.
A couple of weeks ago I turned 36. ‘Where did the years ago?’….I thought. It made me realise how much I don’t want to be procrastinating on things that are important to me anymore. No more holding back, no more excuses, no more worrying what others think of me or whether they will accept me or reject me for what I do. I’m ready to step into my power fully, and stop playing small anymore.
I believe I came to this world to share my gifts, and it makes me incredibly happy when I can inspire someone by doing so. In fact, I believe it’s my responsibility. I have been scared for way too long. I have been worried for way too long. I have been pretending that I’m someone else for ages. I can’t hold back anymore.
I believe, all of us possess so many amazing gifts and we should finally face the fear and share them with the world. It doesn’t matter on how small or big scale. This is the reason for this topic today. I hope the suggestions below can help you step into your own power, so you can focus on things that truly matter to you.
A) Be ready to shine
Let go of fear. Let go of worry what others think of you. Be ready to step out of the comfort zone and step into your power completely. You are amazing and ready to experience some fantastic things in this world.
B) No playing small anymore
Stop doing what you don’t want to do. Stop saying yes, when you mean no. Focus fully on what matters to you and don’t play small anymore. You deserve the best and nobody can tell you or dictate what is or what isn’t possible for you. You make the path, you create the rules for your own life. You create your reality.
C) You are meant for greatness
You came here to do great things. You are not here to waste time on insignificant matters. Start making the most of this interesting experience here on Earth. You are meant for greatness, so get ready to be the person you are meant to be.
“Focus on what you love and start building the life that you truly deserve. No playing small anymore.”
This week, I would like to share with you one of my newest meditation for chakra balancing and healing. If you are already on a spiritual path, you may have come across the term ‘Chakras’ and why it’s important to know about them. If not, have a little read.
What are chakras?
The word chakra comes from an ancient Indian Sanskrit, and means spinning wheel of energy. These vortices of energy interact with your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual body to create harmony. For a healthy soul you need healthy chakras, just as for a healthy body, you need healthy organs. One interacts with the other on a deeper level.
The chakras are like rainbow-coloured dots stretched horizontally along the spine (see the image below). The chakras distribute energy throughout your body. Although they are invisible to most of us, some people can see them. There are people with the ability to perceive the world beyond their five senses, such as healers or shamans.
You too can awaken this ability, if you’re open to it. All of us can sense energy around us and easily pick on vibes from others. If you can do this, you’re able to sense chakras. We’re all powerful souls with many fantastic gifts and abilities yet to be discovered. Chakra colours are fluid and changing as your emotions change and they can become muddy and faced. The colours of the chakras indicate your current state (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual).
The above information I’ve given you is just a very brief overview to get you started. There has been many books and articles written about chakras, and I strongly encourage you to research them. I dedicated a whole chapter to Chakras in my book Mystic Butterfly ~a guide to your true self. Of course, if you are new to spirituality or my work and have any questions related to chakras, please don’t hesitate to contact me and I’ll be happy to give you some further guidance.
In the meantime, have a listen to the meditation below. Find a comfortable place where you are not going to be disturbed for a few minutes, sit down, close your eyes and let my voice be your guide.
A couple of weeks ago, I was thinking how to inspire my beautiful community on social media. A lovely idea came to my mind within a few minutes. I immediately created a beautiful collage and was ready to share it on social media. Then, suddenly, a particular person came to my mind, which I believed ‘would raise their eyebrows’ at my post and would think: “There we go again. Another one of Jana’s inspiring, self-help stuff.”
Within minutes, I began doubting myself and questioning the inspiring message I was so excited about just a minute ago. I decided not to post it. An hour went by and I thought: Isn’t that interesting? Why do we care so much about other’s opinions in a way we begin to doubt our creativity, ourselves?
In the end, I posted my inspiring message anyway and let the self-doubt fade away. And I also learned a lesson from this. It made me realise how much power I’m still wasting, by worrying what other people think of me, people who don’t really know me, my story and how hard I worked and I’m still working and how tired I am of seeking their approval.
So why do we do this to ourselves? Why do we strive to be so likeable and giving these people who don’t really matter so much of our precious energy? It’s because we have been programmed this way. There are rules we need to follow, certain standards to live by, success to strive for. And now, with the internet and especially social media, we feel even more pressure because we compare ourselves to others and what we believe their lives look like. Personally, I love social media, but unfortunately, the comparison that comes with it is doing more harm than good.
Do what feels right for you
Do what pleases you and forget about the rest. Easier said, then done, hmmmm? I know. But listen: Do you want to be always someone’s prisoner, always worry or obsess what they think? Of course not. Focus on you and do what makes you feel good and fulfils you. Leave their opinions and criticism to themselves.
And the truth is: they don’t really think about you, but are busy living their own lives
The amount of time and space we give others in our minds is absolutely crazy and completely unnecessary. Do yourself a favour and stop it at once. Everyone is living their own life, focusing, mainly, on themselves and their own things. They have their own worries, struggles and fears and are not really thinking about you and what you are up to. They are focused on their own lives.
Become more present
Being fully present prevents your mind from wandering to places that disempower you. Be aware of this and every time your thoughts start flying to places you don’t want to go, stop and ask yourself: Where am I? And of course, you know the answer, you are right here, right now at this moment. And this is the only place where the true life exists.
