You have a plan. You have a map. And sometimes blocked paths are a gift.
In most cases, you get something like a pre-warning, a sign, a phone call, a bad feeling in your stomach. Since many of us are busy and stressed, we tend to overlook those hints and suddenly we are totally surprised by blocked paths.
What can you do now?
You can wait. Meditate and hope the barrier disappears.
You can turn back. And go back the same path that brought you here…
You can look around. Use all your senses, maybe you overlooked a tiny new path that navigates you into a new direction.
You can ask: yourself, your true friends and your family. You might not like the answers at first.
You can do something. Change some mosaic pieces of the picture. If impossible right now in the outer world, start with your inner world. Start with a smile.
Remember: blocked paths can also be a gift. They force you to stop, recalculate your life, change. Namaste

A poem I found at a wall, author (to me so far) unknown:
There should be more less for you in 2011.
The sky cloudless,
your heart carefree,
your luck wantless,
your guardian angel jobless,
your mind weightless,
your happiness limitless,
your love doubtless,
your work effortless and
the good times endless.
Im Jahr 2011 soll für Dich jede Menge los sein. Der Himmel wolkenlos, dein Herz sorglos, dein Glück wunschlos, dein Schutzengel arbeitslos, dein Gemüt schwerelos, deine Freude grenzenlos, deine Liebe zweifellos, deine Arbeit mühelos und die guten Zeiten endlos.
It’s teatime again! I got more tea from wearetea/ London, thanks Mikel!
Felicitea – the happiness tea
Fact; we can’t all be happy all the time. Whether the central heating system has decided to pack up, you’ve just become single again or you’re just down on your luck in general, we all need a pick me up from time to time to help us to remember how good life can be. Felicitea may not be able to fix the boiler, repair broken relationships or being good luck but it can provide a moment of happiness and we think that is priceless.
I did open it, the tea, the flowers, the colors – the perfume… instant happiness! I suddenly saw the tea scene of Alice in Wonderland before my eyes (the 2010 Tim Burton version), thought of pink Hubba Bubba chewing gums from my youth. The tea triggered funny memories in my brain and delivered a wonderful carpet with its taste to enjoy and dive into those precious emotions. Priceless!
Dragon well is one of the most sought after green teas in the world, notice the “great taste gold 09″ award. There is not much to write about this tea. The leaves are perfect, the aroma is amazing and the taste is stunning. Immediate feng shui for your being!
Again, thank you Daren and Suzanne for making such great teas!
Yogi Tea is more than the sum of its parts. For me it’s a micro universe around a tea bag. The package already invites you to discover a lot of fine details and information, not only about tea. Serving Your Spirit is a claim from Golden Temple Natural products, the company which makes Yogi Tea. Many years of knowledge and experience in Taoism, Ayurveda and, let me summarize it, the wisdom about Yin and Yang create its great fundament.
Besides the outstanding tea made of organic ingredients you will find mini-manuals for some Tai Chi moves or a Yoga pose. If you have a tea bag version of Yogi Tea you get a kinda additional fortune teller or let’s say a cosmic reminder. Each tea bag has a tiny message for you, the last one I got was simply: Keep up.
The many varieties always offer the perfect flavor for every occasion through the day- and nighttimes. Most times I pick the Yogi Tea of my choice by intuition or maybe it’s simply the resonance of my magnetic field and the tea. Yogi Tea for your body, mind and soul.
