Self-Love Affirmations (video)

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.


Making mistakes & failing is teaching you a lot

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.


It’s okay, if you’ve outgrown some friends

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.

Embrace change

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.


It’s time to focus on what truly matters

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.”

Brand new meditation (Chakra Meditation)

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 selfOf 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.


Are you letting the wrong people take up space in your mind?

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.


If I could talk to my younger self, these are the 7 things I would tell her…

When I was younger, I lived in so much worry and fear. I worried about everything. What other people thought of me, whether I said the right thing or whether I presented myself the right way. Other people’s opinions were so important to me that they were controlling my life in a great way.

When we are very young we have a completely different outlook on life. This outlook can be somehow overwhelming. This was certainly the case for me. But, if I ever had the opportunity to talk to my younger self, there are so many things I would tell her. I would give her so much love, support and reassurance that there is nothing to worry about, only things to experience and lessons to learn from.

If you could talk to your younger self, what would you tell him or her? What words would you use to encourage them and make them feel better when they feel scared? What would you say to them to calm them down? Please share your thoughts in the comments below. You never know who may read them and they can even save someone’s life.

I believe this is a very important topic to talk about. The younger generation can sometimes feel so overwhelmed about life in general, and can definitely benefit and learn from our mistakes, that’s why is important to talk about them. Listed below are a few of the things I would definitely say to that scared young girl I used to be if I had the opportunity.

1) Don’t worry what other people think of you

Others are so busy thinking about themselves and not about you. When we are younger, we think the opposite. Remember, the most important thing is what you think about you.

2) Be yourself

You are unique. There has never been anybody like you and there is never going to be. Embrace all that is you and celebrate your beautiful individuality.

3) Your past mistakes are powerful lessons

When I used to make mistakes, I would beat myself up for them for ages. Look at your mistakes as powerful lessons which needed to be learnt to help you become the person you want to become.

4) Put yourself first, always

Always follow your dreams. Don’t postpone, don’t procrastinate, don’t get influenced by other’s opinions. When I was younger, I was always searching for romantic love. When I was in a relationship, that other person would become my priority. I would put all my dreams and needs aside, and would only focus on the person I was ‘so in love with’. There was a huge price to pay for that. I was never happy, because I stopped focusing on me and my dreams. Later, I realised, I am the most important person in my own life and I will always be. I began putting myself first. This wasn’t selfish, but an act of self-love and respect towards myself. Put yourself first, always.

5) Listen to your intuition

When I was a child, my intuition was very strong and I fully trusted it. As I got older I stopped listening to it and began to doubt it. Luckily, I realised how important and valuable my intuition is. Always listen to your inner wisdom, it will never fail you.

6) Don’t take life so seriously

When we are young, we take everything so seriously, including the things that don’t really matter. Life doesn’t have to be that serious. The same way seasons of the year change, the seasons of life change too. Go through them gracefully. When something doesn’t work out the way you planned it, trust and know that there is something way better on its way to you.

7) You are good enough, just as you are

You are good enough and you have nothing to prove to anybody. You don’t need to compare yourself to others, dress like others, act like others to be accepted by this society. You are good enough, just as you are. Work on yourself, keep improving, educate yourself, but at the same time know that you are good enough and wonderful as you are.


What has living with anxiety taught me & could help you too

What many of you don’t know about me, is that I used to suffer from severe anxiety. My anxiety was so bad that it was controlling my life in a great way. It was happening during my early to almost late twenties, where my friend’s lives were mostly filled with adventures, parties, holidays and the joys of being carefree young adults. I couldn’t join them. My daily life was filled with dark thoughts, panic attacks, thinking about death and being so frightened, whether and how I would survive another day. Everything was a challenge, even the smallest of tasks. Queuing in a supermarket, going to a library, practically being at any public place was putting me into the states of panic and discomfort. My life was filled with severe stress, depression and perceiving the world with a constant foggy sensation on my mind. Was that a living? Not really. But, now I look at it differently. I look at this experience from a higher perspective. Living with anxiety for more than a while taught me so much about myself, my life and most importantly, because of it, I found my life’s purpose, which is being of service to others.

***Before you read further***

Please note, that this isn’t a medical advice. Always seek a health care professional, who will be happy to assist you with any concerns. However, I always like to share what I have learned from my difficult experiences, and how I shifted my life from darkness to light, with a belief that reading about them will help someone.

So, here is what I’ve learned:

1) Acceptance

When we are trying to push something away and don’t want it in our lives, a great amount of resistance can be felt. It feels overwhelming and can take over our lives, so we are unable to see any kind of light. This is how I dealt with my anxiety. I was resisting it. I didn’t want to be feeling anxious. I was fighting my unpleasant emotions every minute of every day. But one day, after about 4 years of daily struggle to be exact, I experienced a beautiful shift which changed my life forever. I came to a realisation to accept my feelings. It felt like finally seeing a beautiful sunrise after a long, dark winter. Ever since I accepted my feelings my life began to shift. Of course, on a very small scale, but there was an improvement. I realised it was okay to feel how I was feeling at that particular moment in time. I decided to stop obsessing about my physical symptoms, instead, I’ve decided to accept them as part of me. As they were part of me, they didn’t need my judgement, rather my nourishment and my compassion. I began feeling liberated.

2) To find something beautiful in every day

I began noticing the small things in life, the things that we often take for granted. I started being grateful for all the wonderful blessings that surrounded me and decided to find something beautiful in every day. Then, something magical happened. I would be very grateful when something made me happy, even if it was just for 5 minutes. Slowly, minutes turn into hours and hours into days. I remember so clearly when I could say, today was a good day. I will treasure that moment forever and still remember it very clearly.

3) To breathe properly

My breathing used to be shallow, short, panicky and it felt like a difficult task. Living with anxiety taught me to slow down, tune inward and learn how to breathe properly. It taught me to pause several times a day, notice my breathing and how it affected my posture, my energy levels and my overall wellbeing. Daily moments of stillness and meditation also deepened the connection to my breath.

4) To love myself

I learnt to love myself fully. I learnt to love and appreciate myself for who I am. I stopped pretending and trying to accepted by others, instead I fully accepted myself and began to finally love myself. I realised, I am the most important person in my own life, who deserves to be looked after and given a priority too. I learnt that this is not selfish, but it’s an act of self-love and respect I was craving for many years. Now, I love myself fully, even the ‘flaws’ I used to dislike. They are part of me and they make me who I am. I feel free and so much happier.

‘There is no shame in living with anxiety, in fact, let’s talk more about it. Let’s let the other struggling souls out there know that they are not alone, and there is always hope to get through this.’

You are a universal artist. Start using your magical superpower

We are all creative. We are all unique artists painting our future as we travel through the Universe at this time and space. Our existence is beautiful, sometimes challenging, but after all, it’s incredibly exciting. Having a conscious awareness of your real power can bring amazing shifts into your life. Align with this idea and start creating the future that you would like to see, not the one that you fear and resist. Have such clarity of what you would like to create that your fears become irrelevant. Write those visions down, meditate on them, feel good about them, take daily action to bring them into this reality and you are on your way.

Visualise the future you desire

When you visualise, you can travel anywhere you’d like to, even in a matter of seconds. Visualising is a magical art and it can bring all these beautiful things you desire into your life. I’ve always been a daydreamer, so when I began visualising intentionally (focusing on what I really wanted to create),  I found it quite easy. Don’t know where to begin? Listed below are a few simple steps to get you started.

Bring your vision into reality:

1. Close your eyes to avoid any visual distraction.

2. Start taking deep breaths, slowly and deeply.

3. Think of an image of what you would like to see in your life.

4. Make this image very clear. Brighten the colours, turn up the volume and feel that it is in your life now.

5. Now, visualise you are stepping into that image and you are aligning with it fully. Feel it within the whole level of your being.

6. Deepen your breathing and feel the feelings of already feeling how you want to feel once is manifested in your physical reality.

7. Smile as you see this image and radiate the positive energy for a few more seconds.

8. Slowly become aware of your body, of your surroundings, stretch a bit and in your own time open your eyes.

9. Take your time getting up.

10. Throughout the day, think of that beautiful image. Smile and feel good about it every time you remember it.

11. Trust and know it is on its way to you.
