8 ways to get into a creative flow

”The one who falls and gets back up is much stronger than the one who never fell.” It’s easy to loose sight of creativity when things don’t happen as quickly as hoped for. You don’t see any results, something negative happened, or maybe you wake up one morning feeling unmotivated for no particular reason. In these situations it’s even more important that you hold on to hope, and try to see the moment for what it is – a moment to reflect, and recharge. Getting back into your groove again. One crucial thing to bear in mind when going through times feeling uninspired and unmotivated, is to accept your feelings. Don’t take them too seriously, since they are temporarily, and you don’t need to invite them in for tea – keep the door open. Don’t push yourself to feel a certain way, to be something you’re not. The lack of motivation is only a phase, and sometimes the only thing you can do is to breathe a little deeper, and take a step back. Even …

Conversations with nature

”We’re more than that;we’re humane beings.”   listen, and you’ll hear me breathe was written for the love of Mother Nature. It’s about time we use our wisdom and creativity. It’s time to be kind. Press the link for the book; listen, and you’ll hear me breathe For every sold copy I’ll donate 50 % to WWF Sweden and ”Låt Östersjön leva.”  

Everything in its time

”Allow your life to unfold naturally.”   Random thoughts of the day. There’s a time for being ahead. A time for being at peace. There’s a time for being in motion. A time for being at rest. There’s a time for being vigorous. A time for being exhausted. To everything there’s a season. There’s a time for every purpose under the sun.  The words above got stuck with me as I listened to them the other day.   No storm can last forever. Not even nature can create a storm that lasts forever. Hidden within every struggle is victory. Within every failure lies an opportunity. Hidden within yourself is everything you’ll ever need; power, love, compassion, joy, success and abundance. Every battle, and every difficulty molds you into a stronger human. As long as you know that you’re on the right path you’ll eventually end up where you want to go. There is and there was nothing like you, and there shall be nothing like you. Therefore, never seek to compare yourself with others. Nonetheless, let …

Dear May…

… you took me by storm. I’m forever lost in your impulsive grace. ”Fight for the fairy tale. It does exist.”   May is for waking up too early. The morning sun dazzling through the broken window. Burning with passion, awakening tired souls. The birds are singing, the red roses blooming. It’s a new day. A bright future. May is for magical, heart-warming evenings. The nature, and humans, reborn.  May is a month when everything is thriving; the cherry trees, the flowers, the hearts. Let her sensuality caress you. Embrace you. You know, she’s blossoming just for you. This May is all about letting the alluring spirit shine through. Exploring the unknown, and taking chances. Believing in the magic of life. The beauty of humanity. Early morning runs and yoga. Awaken the body. Awaken your creativity. It’s about taking the time to learn about oneself. Every day becoming more and more self-aware. It’s about poetry and expressing emotions. Reading and gaining knowledge. The nature, so breathtaking and flourishing, just like you. It’s about leaving things …

With you I’m at home

”A drop of ink may make a million think.” – Lord Byron   And the bravest of all are those who choose to do what they love, over and over. You’re the one thing I’ll never loose faith in. You’re the one I’ll always come home to. With you, life is amazing every bleeding pain worth exploring. With you I’m not afraid. Not afraid to feel. Not afraid to live. Together we experience life as it truly is; raw and touched by too many untouched hearts. Shattered souls. With you I’m alive. For you I take a bow. Whenever I feel sad, in love, anxious, eager to inspire or excited I return home. I return to you. Please, prepare yourself. I may disappear from time to time, however, I’ll always come back. I’ll always return home. I appreciate those days when the words effortlessly flows through me. Like a breath of fresh air. You make everything seem like a dance. Make everything else disappear. With you I know, I’ll always have a deep, fulfilling and …

A desire to learn

”I simply wish to be better than I was yesterday.”   Sometimes I’m overwhelmed with the desire to learn. To know the human mind and its complex structure. Psychology, history and the art of writing. How the human body works. To know why people do the things they do, and why they don’t do what they say they will do. To understand every language, to be able to speak to each and every one I meet. Does an animal think? I want to know about culture, architecture and art. All these wonderful things making life worth living. Worth exploring. To be able to touch people with merely words. How does it feel to be a painter? An astronaut? A chef? How come humans are so extremely creative? Magnificent beings. I’m overwhelmed. And pleased to be one. I wish to know about climate change. Which foods that are best for the human body. For the environment. I wish to know the functions of the cell organelles. Why some politicians seem to believe they can continue feeding …

How to get inspired and motivated

”It’s not your job to be everything to everyone.”   It’s easy to loose your creativity, inner fire and spark when things don’t happen as quickly as you would have hoped for. You might not see instant results, something negative happens to you or you might just wake up one morning feeling unmotivated for no particular reason. In these situations it’s even more important that you hold on to hope, and try to see the moment for what it is – a moment to reflect, and recharge. Getting back up. One crucial thing to bear in mind, when going through times feeling uninspired and unmotivated, is to accept your feelings. Don’t push yourself to feel a certain way, to be something you’re not. Keep in mind that feelings are temporarily. This too shall pass. The lack of motivation is only a phase and sometimes the only thing you can do is to take a step back.   ”Stay dedicated, it doesn’t happen overnight.”   You might feel frustrated, doing everything in your power to get …

Killing time

”…and he knew she was much more than a sentence. she was the entire storyline. the unwritten ending.”   Looking for a way to kill time? Write. ”Write hard and clear about what hurts.” – Ernest Hemingway Or just write whatever comes to your mind. Do whatever floats your boat; spend your precious time wisely. Focus on what makes you happy. Focus on being brave. Recognize the little voice in your head that says you can’t do it. Get rid of self-doubt. Dear human, you can do anything. Have faith in yourself. Be confident. You might feel scared. Alone. That’s totally fine. You’re human. But remember, you’re never alone with a sky full of stars. Fall deeply, madly in love with yourself. With your life. And the world will fall deeply, madly in love with you. Some things you better not ever forget.  ❤     in every one of his dreams she exists and with the sun she disappears     she laughs and he knows the world needs more of her     …
