Ulrike was the name given to me at birth by my parents. I was named after a calf, raised on the farm where my mother grew up; she found it cute. Interestingly enough my nickname “Uschi” (sounded “oo-shee”) means “Cow” in Japanese and it translates into “Happy” in Kundalini. The Cow, in metaphysics, represents “Patience” – a patient and happy cow, I like it!
This name was the first ego ID established for me. It made me someone, in their eyes, a person - it established “who” I was, or better recognized my aliveness.
I am Ulrike.
The important words in this sentence, I am Ulrike, are the words “I Am.” I am alive, I exist, I am spirit, I am conscious, I am aware, and I am Life itself.
Sit still for a minute and think about YOU. Say: “I Am” and feel your aliveness. Feel yourself think. Know that you are conscious. Being - nothing else matters; at least not at this moment. Namaste!
