I recently saw an interview with Gerald Hüther. He is a German neurobiologist and author. He said in his interview that when children cannot express their needs for a long period of time, they lose their lust for life. What he calls lust for life, I simply call joy.

His statement indicates why this JOY-Trend is so important right now.

We are experiencing a time when many people have been restricted from expressing and nurturing their needs.

But now an energy is flooding our world as a trend, which creates exactly what we see in the picture with this dandelion. The life in the picture will not be stopped from expressing itself, it will crack here and there until nature reclaims its rightful place.

It's almost like trying to stop the universe from unfolding.

One of my mantras is: the darkness always serves the light, or as other people describe it: life is never against us. These times of darkness bring out something in us, a deep desire for joy and it wants to burst open as an unstoppable force.

I have a deep feeling that once we remember our lust for life, we will never lose it again. As children we are very dependent on the obedience of an authority, but as adults we have the choice to say: We want JOY to stay.

From my personal experience, when death shows its grimace, it is often the case that first a state of shock sets in, then comes the moment when one is desperate and simply does not want to accept death as a possibility, then after a certain time one realises that one simply has no control and one begins to accept death and surrender. At that moment you realise that it was never about fighting death, but about consciously choosing life. I believe that this is exactly the threshold where the collective is at the moment.

So what does life need in order to develop fully again? It needs social contacts and exchange in analogue space.

Anyone who comes from Germany grew up with Peter Lustig. He was the main actor in a children's series called Löwenzahn. In this series, Peter Lustig lives in a circus wagon without a telephone or internet and discovers the world anew every day. How does he do that?

He always tries things out for himself first by experimenting, building, creating. If he doesn't know what to do, he talks to experts in the field to see for himself. Discovering for ourselves, in real life, in the analogue space, going out, asking questions and forming our own picture through experience, that is how life claims itself back.

How can creatives support this trend. It's very simple: express joy and live it! When we see and feel joy, it activates our inner children who are so curious to experience life in all its facets.

T: Dear Lemon, why am I so attracted to you at the moment?

Lemon: It is the energy of joy that you are so attracted to.

T: Tell me more.

Lemon: Do you remember last August when you had friends over for dinner?

T: Oh yes, that was great fun.

Lemon: It wasn't fun, you enjoyed yourself. That's a big difference.

T: Why is that?

Lemon: You enjoyed preparing the table, decorating it with lemons, cooking the food, baking the lemon cake...You were full of joy. And while the guests were there, you also enjoyed yourself and everyone felt that. You had a beautiful evening.Do you remember how the lemons where glowing on the table cloth? It was no coincidence that you choose lemons.

T: Yes, i still remember those amazing lemons, but I still don't understand the difference between fun and joy.

Lemon: When you do something for fun, you do it because you want the next kick! When there is need for something there is always a space in you which is not fullfilled and this demands for something from the outside. When this outside kick is gone it leaves a feeling of unwellness or unrestlessness similar to withdrawal. And as a result you look for the next kick, the next moment of fun.

T: How do I know when I am doing something with joy?

Lemon: It is a calm presents. The gift to experience life in the present moment, without expectations or conditions for the outcome. When what you do, needs an extra kick, it is simply fun.

T: That sounds a bit lame, doesn't it?

Lemon: All right, let's go back to the late summer evening. Was it lame to enjoy yourself while preparing food and enjoying the company of friends?

T: No, it was not.

Lemon: What felt lame to you is that it didn't require anything except being present. You are so used to, almost addicted to, demanding something that the simplicity of just being present feels lame.

T: Yes, that's true. it is a common believe in society, that neediness for the next big thing is what keeps us thriving.

L: Yes, and what has it done? It makes people live very complicated and exhausting lifes.

T: So lemons as a trend? How can it assist us?

L: As you look at a lemon, smell it, drink it, it meakes it easy to connect to the energy of joy.

T: Does that mean we will have a lot of lemon prints next season?

L: Not necessarily, it can manifest itself in many ways. It can be as simple as seasoning food with lemon zest. Decorating with lemons, the spirit of late summer evenings, making fresh lemonade, expressing joy in different forms.

T: The spirit of late summer evenings?

L: Yes, that's what joy and my energy is about. It's that feeling you get on late summer evenings where you just feel happy in the moment, without the need to change anything, without looking to the future. Just the pure joy of the now.

By the way the sunflower is a friend of mine with a similar energy and we will see her a lot as well.

T: So you and the sunflower would not be here, if this did not resonate with many people.

L: Yes, in many people there is a true heart's desire for that joy and wherever you can bring that into your projects or products, do it. It will help humanity to come back to the joy in the now. To the simplicity of life.

T: Thank you.

Tanja: Dear Diana, welcome back. To be honest, I am a little nervous about this interview.

Diana: Oh dear, don't worry. We are doing great. Let's get started, shall we?

Tanja: Yes! I have just seen your story in the fictional series The Crown. Why are you back, Diana? Why now?

Diana: It is time to look at my story from a different perspective. My energy needs to be seen from a new viewpoint and with a new consciousness.

Tanja: Please, could you explain this new perspective to me?

Diana: It is time to see myself as a whole. It's time to see myself without a mask. To see me as I was and am. And even though the series the Crown is a lot of fiction, it is a very true reflection of my energy and my story. I love the fact that the portrait you have painted is a mixture of me and my character in the series played by the wonderful Emma Corrin. It represents what it is all about. It is fiction, but it is not, and it is very personal, but not because it goes much deeper, because it is a collective recognition and acknowledgement of where we stand as a whole.

T: Wow! Can you explain the mask a little bit further?

D: I was this beautiful fairytale princess that everyone admired. Everyone felt my big heart, my love for people, my light. What you did not see is how sensitive I really was. And as a sensitive and very soft person, I suffered a lot in this world because of the hard conditions.

T: What do you understand by a soft person?

D: For this I have to explain my energy as a soul. I came into this world with a strong feminine energy. This means that I am very intuitive, sensitive, creative and caring.

This energy has often been misjudged, made small, made invisible, causing much suffering and pain not only in me but in the world, especially for women. My gentleness has been seen as a weakness in the eyes of many like the royal family.

Instead of being faithful to myself, I slipped into the role of a vicitimised leader, that is, a person who fights against the outside world in order to get into her rightful place. But this always comes from a place of brokenness and pain and never leads to salvation. It leads to a great loss of one's own life energy. For me this has been shown in sythoms like bulimia. Bulemia is basically a war against ourselves.

T: What role did Prince Charles play in it?

D: He is a strong embodiment of male energy and as such played the role of the victimised male leader. In the series, his mask is also revealed, so that we can see his brokenness.

We both fought an ancient game of survival and suffering.

T: What can we learn from it?

D: To see our own reflection in others. Acknowledging our own brokenness is a big step. If we accept ourselves, we heal and become whole again, and we can finally become leaders of a healthy divine feminine and divine masculine energy and live as an example for others to do the same.

T: When I looked the Crown, I was so stunned by your strong feminine energy, and I was so angry that the royal family did not give you the recognition you deserve as Princess of Hearts. How do you explain that you had such a hard time with them?

D: First of all you should not forget what I said earlier. And I say very clearly that I was at war with them too. And I take full responsibility for my suffering. You can never expect recognition and peace from your enemy if you are not able to raise the peace flag yourself. Moreover, we must not condemn them for their brokenness, because by doing so we are condemning ourselves. In so many areas of our lives, we cannot get out of our own skin of stiffness when we encounter joy and vitality because we are so conditioned to stay in our lane.

T: So if you were at war, why do you sit here in your weddingdress ready to marry Charles again?

D: The wedding dress is a symbol of the marriage of the divine female energy to the divine male energy. It is a renewal of companionship in respect and true admiration for one another. No more brokenness, no more war. And because we have both sides in all of us, it also means that the inner war is also coming to an end. As a result, we will finally enter a new chapter of Planet Earth.

T: Since I am studying trends, I have the following question: How will this show up as a trend and support us in the healing process of the collective?

D: It means for the future of the collective that we will find a new middle ground in many areas. The trend itself will manifest in many forms. One colour that supports this is violet, as it combines red (the female energy) and blue (the male energy).

We will also experience the combination of science and creativity, of intuition and action. Many areas that seem to have found no middle ground will gradually come together and work out amazing solutions for our common future. This happens in people themselves or in groups of people. So very scientifically oriented people will discover and use their intuition in their work and vice versa.

Many will find in themselves a strong female voice that they want to express.

Oh, and my style of dress will continue as a trend - I am very happy with that!

T: How will your style assit in this change?

D: My style was very feminine and playful, and the collective needs that right now to feel strong in its softness. Clothing is so powerful and supports you to be brave and stay in your character even if the war is raging outside.

T:Do you want to say with it that clothing has the power to bring peace?

D: No, but it can most certainly support your inner growth to become peaceful from within.

T: Is there anything you would like to contribute to this interview?

D: Yes, enjoy your life, you all deserve it.

With so much love and gratitude to you all,

your Queen of Hearts.
