More and more I got curious about how we as humans can develop ourself as a person, how the human body works and especially the mind. I was caught in mental health problems since I was sixteen and I started to find ways how to invite sadness, deal with traumas and my everyday life. Today I live a healthy life with physical and mental exercise, maintaining a wholefood vegan diet with the influence of the Ayurvedic principles amongst other practices. I'm a certified yoga teacher and teach Vinyasa. With a certain mindfulness towards my thoughts, I am more able to recognise my own emotions and feelings with a more clear understanding. And on this journey, the universe lead me to to a person that I love from the bottom of my heart, adoring his unlimited curiosity, energy and fearlessness to live his purpose of life. Today we spend our life in Australia together. As a freelance Designer and now part-time musician, I try to get the coins that are needed to pay for a place to live and safe money for future travels. Matthew is a full-time musician, who kinda pulled me by the arm and brought me on the stage as well. Today we publish songs on Youtube and perform in really nice places around Sydney as a Duo called Thousand Rivers.
Today I dedicate this Blog to all the small and big miracles that happen around us, if we really trust that life has a plan for each one of us. I want to share and bring curiosity in to other peoples life to find the way they are meant to walk, where they can be who they really are. Yours, Lina
HEY, I'M LINA ALICE
Two years ago this blog was dedicated to my journey to and through Australia. I barely shared what I was doing here and where I used to live as I found it more important to share what I get out of travelling on my own, my learnings and thoughts. I wanted to see through my own eyes and heart to get the bigger picture so I could write about it with the knowledge I had gained.
When I was little, I was barely into what was perceived as girly things and always one of the rough ones. A tom boy. I was always surrounded by nature, playing hide and seek in the cornfields or building little treehouses for our gang to find shelter. I never truly felt a true sense of belonging to my home country Germany and was always drawn to things that made me express my imagination. I was always looking for the bigger picture in life. One day my love for creative things lead me to photography and my unlimited imagination lead me to my job as a Designer. My complex thoughts then lead me to art, and I started to visualise with paintings and words. This inner feeling of discontent made me quit my job two years ago to travel Australia. Along my journey I met very inspiring people, cultures and nature that I've never experienced before. And finally, I kinda met myself.
JA WIR BEKOMMEN WIEDER GÄNSEHAUT. UND DAS NICHT WEIL UNS KALT IST. NEIN WEIL ALLES WAS UNSERE AUGEN SEHEN DANN AUCH UNSER HERZ WIEDER SEHEN KANN. DANN SIND MENSCHEN NICHT MEHR NUR MENSCHEN. WORTE NICHT GLEICH WORTE. IRGENDWANN, WENN ALL DIES UNS WIDERFÄHRT, LEBEN WIR.
