Let’s get some rest
Getting enough sleep is fundamental if we want to have powerful days and live a healthy life.
And to get enough sleep regularly, we need a sleep routine that serves and nourishes us.
If you don’t know where to start on your self-actualization journey, creating a healthy sleep routine is definitely the perfect place.
Once we start rearranging our schedule to get enough sleep, EVERYTHING else will fall into place more easily.
(And it’s the perfect antidote to our current stress levels as well.)
Because sleep, rest and relaxation are so important, we dedicate a whole chapter on optimizing our sleep routine, practising breathing and relaxing and restoring ourselves in the CREATRIX School.
We will look at what the science of sleep teaches us, find out why it can be difficult to take enough time to relax and restore in this busy world, and what we each need to allow ourselves the time and space to rest and restore.
It’s the new way to live, and it’s now easily available to you!
Do you sometimes find it difficult to fall asleep and get enough rest?
Is it time to start taking better care of yourself?
Would you like to learn how to build a daily routine that really serves you?
In short: Do you feel like it’s time to start taking really good care of yourself, allow yourself to rest enough so that your body, mind and soul can integrate what you’ve been working on and open up to more love, joy and health?
If you are curious to find out how to make a relaxed, confident and conscious life your new reality, then I’d love to invite you to this new chapter in the CREATRIX School.

Welcome to a new chapter in the CREATRIX School
In this lesson, we start to think about why it can be challenging to relax and rest and take time for ourselves.
Why are rest and sleep so important?
In this lesson, we think about the excuses we make instead of getting enough rest and sleep and see how we can release the beliefs that resting is lazy or a luxury.
Let’s take a break – and make this a practice
In this lesson, we talk about how to develop a mindful vision for our lives and think about how to live more effortlessly by allowing things to take their time.
How to Relax in a Busy World
What keeps us from taking enough time to rest and sleep? How can we access our needs to meet them? In this lesson, we introduce a new ritual to make it easier to meet our needs and find out more about what might have been keeping us from it until now.
Let’s Seize the Day
Have you ever lived without electricity? Most of our ancestors have, and our body is still at its best when we go with the natural rhythm of time. In this lesson, we find out how we can live more effortlessly by not going against our natural rhythms.
Let’s get practical
In the last few lessons, we looked at why we need to rest and sleep and why we’ve not been doing it enough – now it’s time to start creating the change we want to see!
How inner peace can help us to sleep well
In this lesson we look at what we can do to find inner peace, hope for our future and our lives and influence the world in positive ways – so we know we’re doing our best and can sleep well.
How to use meditation and mindful breathing to sleep better
We have many different ways to change the way we sleep. Some of them we do at night, others we can do during the day. In this lesson, we look at different mindfulness practices to support us with better sleep and relaxation.
Some more things we can do during the day for better sleep
What, when and how do we eat for better sleep? How do we exercise for better sleep, and what else can we do to allow ourselves to be well rested for the rest of our lives?
There’s a right time for everything
In this lesson, we find out how we can use the seasons and the moon phases to harness the energies of the universe, and with that, live more effortlessly.
What have we learned this month?
In this lesson, we review what we’ve learned this month and bring back the most important learnings from each lesson.
How to be the Qu_ing of relaxation
In our last lesson for this chapter, we have a look at how we can put what’ve learned to practice and integrate it into our qu_ing self, aka our highest or best self. How much would a qu_ing allow themselves to rest?
How would you rest if you lived like a qu_ing?

Exploring your Needs
make some relaxing body scrub
If anyone can learn this, why don’t they?
Because many people don’t believe that they have the power to change their lives.
Even if they haven’t even tried — yet. Or because they’ve tried it in ways that didn’t work for them, as they likely wanted too much too fast – or didn’t dare enough.
There’s a certain comfort in not taking full responsibility for the situation we’re in, by blaming our circumstances, upbringing or current world events – and believing that it’s not up to us to create the changes we need and seek.
But if we want to create changes, it’s always up to us to start – and if we initiate a positive change once, we also know we can do it again.
The CREATRIX School invites you to find out for yourself, that you have the power to change anything you don’t like about your life, by giving you the right exercises to try and see for yourself, what else could be possible if you dare to be your true and authentic self.
It’s revolutionary, yet also very practical and down to earth.
And it’s not like you will not eventually be able to figure this all out by yourself, it might just take you a lot longer. So if you want guidance and get going now, this is for you.
I’d be happy to gracefully guide you through the process of your self-actualization, and to make this journey as easy, fun, exciting, surprising and successful for you, as possible.
Because I’ve just went through a lot of these changes myself.
From my experience, I know that, to create the changes, we wish for in our lives, we have to begin by taking full responsibility for our thoughts and actions and start being honest with ourselves.
From here we can find our own unique ways to be ourselves, to laugh, to love, to learn, to open up and to enjoy trying something and failing at it, as much as we enjoy mastering it.
Everything in life happens for us, not to us.
Every experience, everything we try and fail at, helps us to learn and grow and be better next time.
Because, as humans, that’s what we are here on earth for:
To grow and to learn, and to show and share our unique gifts and beauty, so we can contribute to the whole in our own unique ways and for the highest good for all.
If we begin to recognize our purpose and see our journey through life as a self-actualization journey, that will eventually allow us to be our highest, truest, most relaxed and abundant qu_ing self, it also allows us to open up to joy and love and abundance in our lives a bit more every day.
Anyone can do this, really – and it can even be a lot of fun.
But it can also be hard work, to face our shadows and begin to transform them into light.
And to do this confidently and continuously until we reach true inner peace might take some practice and encouragement, which can be difficult to bring up on your own.
Most people simply don’t know where to begin or what to do exactly, or don’t have the money to work with a personal coach or teacher on these topics individually.
Which is precisely why I founded the CREATRIX School.
This way, I can guide you through every step you need to take to get to where you want to go and bring clarity, confidence, joy, relaxation, abundance and playfulness into every area of your life – without having to pay full price for a personal coach.
Yet with the same success.
As every good coach will tell you, we are here to ask you the right questions, the answers you will always have to find for yourself.
And you do already have the answers.
You just haven’t taken the time, or had the right guide, or the confidence, to ask them and to listen for your answers.
But this can all change right now.
Is this the right course for you?
You have everything it takes to live the life your soul desires, that makes you happy and fulfils you.
And the more you recognize and live that truth or knowing, the more confident you will become in walking your unique path, and the more balanced your life will become.
To live a fulfilled, happy and successful life, we each have to ask ourselves some questions and find our unique answers to them.
These questions have been asked again and again by wisdom seekers all around the world in all centuries of human history, and are as easy or as difficult as: “Who am I? Why am I here?”
Or: “What do I need to eat to be healthy?”
Or, as we will see in this chapter: “How can I acknowledge that to rest and recover is as important as to act for my highest good and that of all?”
And now it’s your turn to ask yourself these questions so you can walk through life having your own answers and with this knowing build a deep-rooted confidence and the understanding that you belong here and are exactly right as you are.
Once you have answered these questions for yourself and by yourself (though with guidance I provide for you in the CREATRIX School), you will find peace and calm and a sense of safety and clarity, that is difficult to imagine possible before you do.
Other people’s opinions, guidance and wisdom can be great and super helpful, but they never match your unique situation 100%, and so no guidance will ever be as good as the one you find within.
The trust, wisdom and confidence I experience now is something I wouldn’t have dared to imagine possible before I started my own self-actualization journey.
Real freedom, confidence & success are possible – for anyone who dares to look within and try new ways.
I feel incredible now, but I was pretty insecure, doubtful and unhappy in my past.
Without that past, however, I wouldn’t be here now – I wouldn’t know what it takes to get here and what kind of change is possible.
I’ve learned a lot because of the hardships I endured in my past, especially from the most difficult parts.
Today, I am genuinely happy about everything that has happened in my life, even the challenges that hurt really bad.
With every hurdle I overcame, new powers emerged and with every valley I crossed, the horizon opened up and showed me new options.
Today, I truly enjoy every step I take because I know it is and will continue to be worth it.
And I’d love for you to be able to develop this sense of ease and joy about everything that happens in our lives as well, because we are all here to explore, learn and grow and not to have it all figured out already.
If you believe new opportunities are waiting here for you, if you’d like to start building a deep-rooted trust in yourself and your abilities – then this is the right course for you.
All you have to do is get started.
Isn’t it selfish to focus on myself?
Especially when there are other people out there who are struggling much more?
If you ask this question, aren’t you struggling yourself?
Don’t you find it difficult to sleep peacefully at night because you worry about your personal situation and/or the state of the world?
The thing is, we can only safely reach out a hand to other people if we stand strong ourselves.
It’s the same reason why we are told to put an oxygen mask on ourselves first, before we help others – because if we don’t have air, or energy or love, or food, or hope to sustain ourselves, we cannot inspire and support other people – sustainably.
Equally, we can only create a better and more equal world, if we ALL have access to all the resources we need to live free, happy and abundant lives.
It’s why I will always encourage you to share everything you learn in the CREATRIX School with other people.
Sharing what you’ve learned deepens your knowledge and holds you accountable, and it opens doors for others to see things in a new and more self-empowered way.
If we think that we can or need to change the opinion of others to create change – we enter into a frustrating and often violent game – and, most of the time, cause more damage than good.
If, however, we live what we preach and set an example, show other people how it can be done, we are so much more likely to succeed.
The undeniable truth is, that to create change on the larger scale, we always have to start with ourselves – we have to be the change.
If we are strong, we can act powerfully, if we know how to be healthy, we can share that knowledge with others, if we love ourselves, we can share and give and receive love freely.
By embodying what we wish for, sharing what we have and giving freely, all that we want more of, can multiply indefinitely.
So, to create the change we wish for, we can only start by meeting our own needs first.
If we want to help other people, we have to know how to take care of ourselves.
Looking at it this way, we can realize that it’s never selfish to learn how to take good care of ourselves.
Everybody can have their dream job, live in their dream home and experience peace and joy – we just don’t all know how yet.
The reason why we have wars, exploitation, hate, fear, devastation, sickness, is because the people involved in these actions, don’t know how to solve things peacefully.
They are ruled by their egos.
But we, you and me, have a choice.
We can side with them, take sides, hate one and love the other – and with that continue to keep up a system that thinks killing, discrimination or exploitation of others can be justified – or we can feel helpless in the face of all the devastating things going on in the world, and so overwhelmed that we ignore it altogether or break down and become depressed.
Or we can choose to strengthen ourselves, to gently overcome our ego and begin to live a life in service for the highest good of all.
Which option do you think will bring the best results for you and all those whose lives you touch?
We can each make a start and begin to learn what it takes to live in peace with ourselves so that we can also live peacefully with other people.
Once we’ve found our purpose, our calling, our strength, our power, our unique gifts, we can share our knowledge and experiences with confidence so that, over time, all people who are interested and ready, will have access to the knowledge and can learn to live self-actualized, happy, healthy and successful lives.
In the end, it is up to each one of us to decide if it’s time to start living a life in which we can fully become ourselves, develop all our skills and ideas and grow with ease to live a life that matches our desires – and with that contribute to the well-being of all, or not.
No one will stop you, from becoming your true self, but you.
If you let other people and their opinions or judgement hold you back, it will not make you or them any happier or help you or them.
But if you want to begin changing your life for the better and inspire others to do the same – because they will see you change and shine and thrive, then you now have the opportunity to join the CREATRIX School, to bring peace, clarity, confidence, joy and abundance into every area of your life.
And you can easily find out if this is the right thing for you, by taking advantage of the free 30-day trial.
Do you want to begin living more joyfully and peacefully?
Is now the best time to start?
You will know that now is the right time to allow yourself to rest and sleep more and better when you feel like you don’t want to continue to feel exhausted, overwhelmed and detached from your emotions and your inner voice and guidance.
Now is the right time, to open this chapter in the CREATRIX School, and in your life, if you want to bring clarity, confidence and connection into your life and keep a clear head no matter what.
Now is the right time, if you would like to base your interactions on love, on understanding, on forgiveness and be able to deal with whatever comes up feeling empowered and able to handle it, instead of insecure, or intimidated.
To dare to change something that has been a certain way for as long as we remember might seem scary or challenging.
Yet, I dare you to try, as it is very possible to change things, and it is very freeing to feel empowered in a situation, that you thought you could not change.
Excuses as to why now is not the right time will always come up, but they are just what they are: EXCUSES.
In the end, the sooner you start to create a life according to your soul’s desire and align your body, mind and soul for your highest good and that of all, the sooner you will be able to fully enjoy your life as well.
So, let me give this question back to you:
Is it time for you to live in a way that nourishes you and makes you feel safe, happy, loved and at ease?
Is it time to start creating a bedtime routine that allows you to fully recover and integrate all that you learn and experience each day?
Then, yes, this is the very best time.
Am I the right guide for you?
Hi, I’m Verena your guide in the CREATRIX School and I actually started my self-actualization journey by changing my food and sleep-routine.
If you had asked me five years ago, I would have told you that I’m a night owl, that I go to bed late, and that I love it – I get my best work done when everybody else has already gone to bed.
There’s something magical about nighttime and, especially if you are an empath like me, it’s nice to concentrate on what you are working on when you don’t have to feel all these other energies around you or feel like you have obligations, people and things to attend to.
Electric light has made it easy for us to choose our own day and nighttimes, but over time we pay a toll when we go against the natural rhythms.
We can feel it in our bodies and see it on our electricity bills.
If we want to live a healthy, happy, effortless life, it is easier to follow the natural rhythm of the sun and moon and to raise early and to go to bed early as well.
When you ask the most successful people in this world, they will all tell you that they prioritize their sleep and getting up early.
But time is not all that matters here. To sleep and rest well, we also need to exercise, limit our screen time and eat well and, of course, know how to quieten our minds.
And I’d love to show you all the tricks I’ve found over the years to make this as fun, effortless and natural as possible.
Naturally, I’m such a doer.
I used to find it hard to watch TV without crafting something during that time.
To allow myself to sit and not be productive went against anything I knew.
You know how they say: “If you don’t have time to mediate for ten minutes, meditate for an hour.”
I remember how I almost broke a sweat when I first heard that.
I was so convinced that I did not have ten minutes to meditate, let alone an hour, and I felt like saying this was really cruel – because it pointed me towards myself and how I didn’t know how to allow myself time to take care of myself – and that hurt.
So if this is where you are at, no worries.
It’s kind of like ripping off a band-aid.
It’s painful for a second, then it takes some patience and healing, but then you also feel fresh and renewed and like you’d never want to go back.
I’m not saying it is easy and that it doesn’t require some allowing and the bravery to change things, but I promise you that you won’t regret it.
I’ve entered on my journey to become who I am now because I just wanted to be a little bit healthier and happier.
And so I began to look for ways to be that, which quickly turned into a couple of years of research and training.
I have an M.A. in cultural anthropology and political sciences, so how people work in this world has always been my main point of interest.
If you’re interested in my formal qualifications, then you can find them on the about page.
But what I found out in the last couple of years of research, and what I didn’t learn at University, is, that with just a few specific changes in the way we think and act, everything in our lives can change for the better – and this is true for anyone who is willing to be honest with themselves and who is not afraid of change.
We can all live abundant, happy and healthy lives – all we have to do for this is to find out how and then practice it – and the how is waiting right here for you in the CREATRIX School.
We all need to learn how to allow ourselves to rest well – because it is essential for everything else.
And we do that by creating a healthy relationship with ourselves, tuning in to our desires and inner knowing, becoming more confident and loving and, most importantly, by allowing ourselves to receive and enjoy.
So if you are looking to be better resourced, open, receptive and relaxed so that you can become all you can possibly be (and a lot more than you might now allow yourself to be now) then I’d be happy to guide you through this process of self-actualizing, becoming your best self, or your qu_ing self and begin to live the life, you know you are meant to live and open up to live and love fully and freely.
And I can’t wait to welcome you to the CREATRIX School and to invite you to our wonderful community of people who dare to be generous, happy and free!
