Love. Money. Work

Seeing Work as A Conduit Of Love

As I drove past traffic in the LA highways, I thought about what the communal energy was. The energy was probably that of stress- “I have to get to work on time, I am stuck in traffic, I have to pay my bills, work sucks, etc”.

What if we thought about our work as a conduit of love? What if we actually did what we love out of a pure energy of love…and we refused to compromise our values for money? Recently, I started teaching yoga and meditation and spoke at 3 different events this month. I taught young teens how to start their own business and I was genuinely shocked by how easy teaching a big group of people was for me. I felt pure love and expansion in my heart for these mere strangers. I thought about how strange it was that even though I was not getting paid for it, my heart felt strong and powerful. I also noticed that as I teach out of pure love of wanting to help others, I have been receiving more monetarily and even getting more opportunities to expand.

That’s when I realized that pure love makes money flow with ease and grace. Money is not apart from love, actually money is one way in which we can love others and show them that they are worthy of their talents and skills. When our greed and selfishness for gain gets in the way, our relationships are also distorted. Business is crooked because we start to focus more on the money than on the people that we are doing business with. That is why you see very successful people with horrible relationships, but also people who are poor also have jaded values of what money means. Some people think that money is evil, no, it is the greed that is evil. When we put money above people, that is evil.

In my life, I have studied people, finance, spirituality, growth and everything I have ever been interested in. I sold jewelry, taught lessons, did real estate, wrote for newspapers and magazines, improv-ed, appeared on television, was a marketing manager, instructor, musician, artist, business woman..I danced a lot and took all kinds of classes (flamenco, acting, creative writing, german…to name a few).

My goal was to become successful, and I also wanted to help people. At one point, I found myself wanting money more than helping people. My greed got in the way of my heart. I became constricted and fearful that people were going to rip me off because as a freelancer I have had many people rip me off. I have designed and created fashion pieces only to have the woman never pay me. I have learned from my mistakes in my lifetime of playing music for weddings and people not pay me a cent. I have experienced injustice towards the young, people taking advantage of interns because they are supposedly inexperienced and are not worth the money.

In having experienced many things in my lifetime, I can say I am more in tune with how it feels to live in fear or love. When you live in fear of “people are going to jip me”, “I won’t have enough for bills this month”, “business stinks”, you will often feel physically constricted. Your neck will hurt, you will become sick, you will experience stomachaches, you will grow angry at the world and some people start to blame everyone around them instead of taking responsibility.

The fact is, you need to know whatever you want needs to be cultivated in your soul first. You must know that you are worthy. You must know that you deserve a certain amount, you must know that everything that needs and wants to be expressed in the external world first begins internally.

You must have faith as well. You must keep trusting and believing when times gets tough and your dreams have not come into fruition. You must keep envisioning and believing when there’s no light at the end of the tunnel. You must also know that the dream is not the end goal, but the journey is. The journey is the people you walk with and the people you love on in that season of life. You experience an abundance of love when you see life as a spiritual path versus an end goal.

Yesterday I experienced a flow of genuine love between a friend I have known for 10 years. I felt that our friendship had endured the test of time due to the fact that our friendship has been pure, without manipulation or this guilt tripping of “I give to you so you must give to me”. In giving out of unconditional love (with boundaries of course), we were able to walk through thick and thin. Over the years, I have learned to forgive easily and to let go gracefully. There are friends you keep and there are friends you must let go of so you can walk towards greater heights.

Work then, is a conduit of our love. The world is interconnected in all regards. One person’s thoughts create the energy around them. Do you ever wonder why you walk into a room and feel sick to your stomach, someone has tainted the room with their negativity. You can become an agent of change by remembering to live in love. What does that look like? Search and you will find, continue to read my blog of course ;) and continue to read, learn, experience what love looks like. I’m here with you in this journey :)

The Heart Of An Artist

Posted on

4f09ddee66646

The heart of an artist 

longs for freedom, expression, paradise,

it longs to be free of responsibility so that it could create without hindrances, walls, stipulations, manipulation, weight. 

Artists long for the freest and highest form of expression and we seek for expression our whole lives. Listen to the desires of your hearts, it is this long forgotten self that is screaming for attention. Our world has long forgotten the cries of the soul. Let freedom ring and let it ring louder. 

How Teaching Yoga & Meditation Has Helped To Build Community

Posted on

I’m a community advocate & leader. I believe in building community WHEREVER I am. Los Angeles can isolate people pretty easily, especially since our meet-ups and hang outs are predestined by TRAFFIC hours, between 7-10am or 3:30-6:30pm. Forget about driving anywhere. I have mastered LA traffic as you can see. I live 25 miles away from my closest friends but that doesn’t stop me from seeing them.

However, due to scheduling and busy lives, it is EASY not to see someone for 6 months or even a year….sometimes even a few years. It might sound ridiculous for some non-LA folks, but in a city, people tend to be pre-occupied. 

When I first started teaching my Yoga and Meditation class, my goal was to bring people together and cultivate a culture of peace and relaxation. I also wanted to build a culture of being instead of doing. As an entrepreneur, I found that when I breathed and slowed down, I was able to focus better. When I took days off to get away, I was able to create space for growth and inspiration. 

THE WHOLE CONCEPT OF PUSH, PUSH, PUSH until something gives in to you…that’s masculine energy, we’ve been taught that our WHOLE lives. Don’t get me wrong, the only reason I am writing this is because I have very aggressive and go – getter attitude. I get THINGS DONE. 

Teaching Yoga and Meditation and seeing the same people, new people every week has helped me to link up with my friends and new friends. We’re not the type of class that says…”goodbye see you next week” – some of us hang out after class. I’ve become friends with all of my students. They’re not really my students, they’re my colleagues in this universe of growth and learning. That’s why it’s different….it’s about an inner transformation, not just about trying to do poses that look impressive. 

I hope you’ll join us this THURSDAY for our Yoga and Meditation Class & Party!

Divine Alignment in Business

Posted on

fly

What is divine alignment?
It is the idea that there is a greater force placing you with the right people at the right time. Whether you are spiritual, new age, or perhaps believe in molecules aligning…divine alignment brings ease, grace and rest into your life.

I don’t believe in working hard, I believe in working smart.

I have tons of people ask me what I spend most of my time on in terms of my career and entrepreneurial journey. I live in divine alignment, so I am aligned in my spirit and my being wherever and whenever. Most of the time, divine alignment actually springs from passion and desires in our hearts. I don’t define my spirit being as a entrepreneur, realtor, speaker…I am Rebekka, don’t corner me into a job title. That is just TOO small for me. I’m an art form, I create like a moving artwork. 

Well, don’t most people live the way the want to?

No, actually a lot of people live out of other peoples’ expectations for their lives. Perhaps you hear this “you should do this….or that”. Even you feel guilty doing what you love. Maybe you love painting for fun or you love skateboarding instead of wearing a suit to work everyday. Maybe you love pastries and wine tasting. Anything can be a career, anything can be a business. 

Divine alignment happens when we decide to honor our desires and dreams and discipline our minds to think positively….it happens when our minds are completely transformed to submit to the divine power that is everywhere and in you. 

I do a lot of things that people don’t consider work, it is because I am listening to my heart and spirit to go wherever….it springs from pure passion for everything I value. Because I live out of pure passion and love, I attract the type of connections that lead me to the right opportunities for me to work in a way that expresses my highest being. 

I value people, community, trust, freedom, fun, celebration, beauty, wealth, success, health and friendship. 

Because I know my values, I attract like-minded people and stay away from people that try to change my values. Every boundary I set is intentional. Every habit I live by is intentional. I weed out hindrances or weight, I stay away from drama or drama queens and kings…I simplify my life with great people and opportunities to grow as a human and spiritual being. 

Some people complain about their lives, but maybe it is because they are not WILLING to let go of the negative influences in their lives. You can’t welcome a new future while holding onto the past. 

I believe each one of us are spiritual beings that were put on this earth to heal each other. None of us are perfect, we’re not just on earth to survive, we’re on this earth to FLOURISH and to become the most beautiful beings that we can possibly be. The human heart comes alive when we touch each other with a healing hand, encouragement, story…movie, expression, music, art, whatever it is. 

 

4 Things You Must Do As An Entrepreneur

Posted on Updated on

DSC_0015 DSC_0019 DSC_0084 DSC_0116 DSC_0119-2

 

Come join us for this coming Thursday’s Yoga and Meditation class- 7-8pm 

1. Write down what your PRIORITIES are-

If your priorities is to grow your business and learn as much as you can about your business, going to VEGAS may not be what is in your budget or even time and energy. If your priorities is to develop strategies in your business, then hanging out with friends who just want to have fun all the time is not on your TO DO list. If you are trying to create a new business or website, maybe you have marketing expenses, you’ll have to skip the weddings and birthday parties. Obviously, there are times that going to those events are advantageous, but you learn to cut out “niceties” – things that you do because you feel bad or because you “should” versus you “want to”.

2. Shrug your shoulder and back to most of the world-

Most of the world only cares about the external world. Most people only care about what people think. You turn your head and look the other way. As an entrepreneur you must seek time alone to reflect and learn, go deeper so you can grow in an exponential and personal way. You must go against the grain in many areas in your life. There are things that people will just not understand, but you do not have to try to fit into their thinking.

3. Do It Now-

You must act quickly on your ideas. The more you have something on your mind, the more it’s the universe’s way of telling you “DO IT”. I could have waited and “thought about” all the things I wanted to do – this is what most people do. They think about traveling, they think about creating their own business, they think about falling in love, they think about moving….while people were thinking, I hopped onto planes and backpacked to Ecuador, Australia, Brazil, Asia, I tried so many businesses that your head would spin if you had to do it yourself. While people were thinking, I tried different jobs, everything from marketing to business development, I moved 3 times. I designed Halloween costumes, became a columnist for a newspaper, became a Leasing manager (minus the desk), tutored mandarin, taught cello and piano, became a Real Estate agent, developed a coaching course, created my own Yoga and Meditation class…and do I still long to be tied to a desk? Do I long for stability, no. The instability of entrepreneurship outweighs the stability of clinging onto a job I hate. Because my life is unstable, I can take commercial acting classes on sunday nights and attend my cousin’s performance at the W Hotel on a random weeknight. Because my life is unstable, I can schedule my own yoga classes. Because life is unstable, I can book a flight to Israel and ride camels if I wanted to. 

4. Don’t be FOMO- 

Don’t have the fear of missing out. This is especially for people like me – who are extroverted and love people pleasing, NO, just say no. You do not have to attend every single networking and social event!!! People ask me LEFT AND RIGHT to attend their events. I pick and choose carefully, do network but be selective. Listen to that inner voice, there is only 1 of you. I have gotten most of my leads, clients, opportunities from networking.

Come join us for this coming Thursday’s Yoga and Meditation class- 7-8pm 

922 E Huntington Drive San Marino

Above you will see some of the pictures of the Yoga and Meditation class I teach each Thursday. This class begun with my own passion of fitness and seeking deeper in times of entrepreneurial stress. I realized that everyone is looking for a place to be, to sit still and to find their core.

 

 

The Entrepreneurial Path

Posted on Updated on

XOP_7415

The entrepreneurial path is probably the most difficult path anyone will ever take…I mean, anyways, seems like it.

As I sit in my bed, feeling elated after teaching my yoga and meditation class, I feel a sense of contribution…that I have contributed something worthy to peoples’ lives.

My entrepreneurial path is like a roller coaster. Most people see the smiley faces, but they have no idea what I look like when I’m depressed, when I cry or when I’m just plain angry. Since life is unstable for most entrepreneurs, we often go from supremely happy to extremely depressed. These are personal faces I show to myself and to close friends around me. I’m human too though. In fact, being an entrepreneur has forced me to confront negative and limiting beliefs that was hindering my growth. You see, your mindset and beliefs about how life should be IS EVERYTHING.

Every SINGLE thing around you was CHOSEN by you. 

The clothes you wear, the people you choose to spend time with, the things you choose to buy, the furniture around you…the people you choose to associate yourself with, it’s ALL YOU baby.

Yep, and as I face this fact, I am slowly unraveling the consequences of my choices as well as letting go of the past so that I can move forward. In order to live a better life, you have to let go of your past life. Our minds are creatures of habit, we need to reinvent our thoughts so we can progress to a better thinking, which will lead to – hopefully what we envision. 

The entrepreneurial path is full of excitement, I have no set schedule, I determine my destiny…but it is also easy to get distracted by the plethora of unnecessary news flooding facebook and social media. Where is there one place I can be still and be? (Yoga/Meditation).

My hour of teaching has helped even myself set intentions and center my core.

My days are flooded with demands from work, training people, marketing, social media, bookkeeping, I do it all. I’m now at a place in life where I realize I must delegate so I have the energy to renew my strategies and at times, seriously, REST.

I feel a rush of various emotions I can’t really explain…I’ll have to write a poem:

Mondays are fundays, I laugh with comedic individuals and pretend to fly like a bird

Tuesdays I dive into work like a monkey frantic for acceptance and bananas

Wednesdays I pluck cello strings with students and run wild to networking events

Thursdays I hone into my to-do list and wash dishes on breaks

Fridays I convene with like minded individuals and cast lots to break a leg

Saturday I write poetry and newspaper articles, while making up readable blog posts

Sundays I attend 4 hours of acting class and watch myself cook dried chicken on the stove

Yah, so that’s my poem. Things are coming easier to me these days because I have determined that business will come easily to me. I am proud to say that I will be on an official interview podcast on July 7! Some people ask me how I get all these opportunities, I don’t get them honey, I look for and ask for them. 

But enough asking, I’ve sown my seeds, now I am welcoming all the harvest to hurry up and come forth. Now my sacrifice is to rest….interesting how resting is a sacrifice for me. I can’t help being a GET IT DONE kind of woman. 

I am a tiger, I get things done, that’s all I have got to say.
