#winterfeels

”That thing about being one by your side, exquisite in all our phases.”   You’re so beautiful you make me freeze.  Dear winter, just as the ground underneath the softest, crystal snow, we’re resting in your arms. Being one with the cold awakening breeze. You’re the only one to stop our motion, our addiction to hurry. Bringing us to our knees, becoming solid. Finding everything we’ll ever need. Being one with your freezing breath. You teach us plenty. But most of all, you teach us how to rest, to go within. How to be cheerful, while creating angels in your smooth, comfy arms. Refreshed, with red noses, burning hearts. Hot cocoa. Hot fire flames. Pause. Unwind and let go. It’s time for lighthearted action. Moving gently with the snowflakes, leaving footprints behind. Always finding our way back home. Can you sense it? The sun on your cheek. The light in your heart.  If we only knew how blessed we are. To have you, to be in your arms. Definitely cold, but soft. Definitely dark, but calm. Definitely long, …

Random things on my mind

”The real question is whether you want to be happy regardless of what happens..”   It has been a productive, however, rather hectic start of the new year. A lot of work, as well as studies, have been taking up most of my time. But that’s the way I like it. My mind functions a lot better when it has things to do. I love reaching that flow state – when you’re in the moment, totally immersed in what you’re doing. Time passes by without you even noticing. That perfect balance can, however, be difficult to obtain. As soon as things become a little bit too stressful I tell myself; ”Breathe, and begin again.”  Below you’ll find a few thoughts that have been occupying my mind lately: 1. Unconditional happiness I wanted to share with you an extract from the book The Untethered Soul: ”The purpose of your life is to enjoy and learn from your experiences. You were not put on Earth to suffer. You’re not helping anybody by being miserable….. … In the end, …

5 Positive habits that will improve your life

”Now is the perfect time to start imagining all that you can do.”   It’s never too late to implement fresh, new habits into your day-to-day routine. As I mentioned in a former blog post (Five life perspectives to live by) – if you’re looking for a mini life-makeover, then, first things first, you need to start from within. In other words, start with your mental state, since most often it’s the root to all problems. If you don’t change what’s going on inside your mind – with your thoughts, who you are and the way you think about certain things – then it’s going to be very hard to find a new sense of happiness, contentment and inspiration. Below you’ll find 5 positive habits to implement in 2019: Patience ”Allow things to unfold naturally.” I believe the main difference between successful and unsuccessful people is not the way they vary in their competencies, but the way they vary in their ambition, and desires to reach their potential. Persistence and patience is key, since good things usually …

Dear January…

… wherever you are, be there.” ”It’s your task to listen. To be still,yet alert.Trust.”   January is for flourishing beings awakening their souls. While nature’s half asleep, bloom, darling, bloom. Evolve, one precious step at a time. Believe in yourself, never neglect your true worth. Your true light. Strive for progression, growth and compassion. There’s always something to be grateful for. Life. Dear human, be grateful for life. Kiss your worries away. Dance with every loving breath.  January is for taking that delicate and crucial first step. The opportunity to begin anew arises. Sunrise after sunrise. Souls awakening from the darkest of night. From the deep, deep slumber we all return to light. Guided by the strength within. Shining bright. Trust that everything you seek you already are. Brave being, believe in your dreams. Appreciate your journey for it molds you into the human you are. Into the human you are becoming. This January is all about understanding one’s uniqueness. Knowing that it’s ok to be scared, to not have all the answers. Be ambitious anyway. Be curious, be you. It’s about listening and having faith. …

What’s your reason for being?

”Wherever you are, be there.”   Who are you? I’m not asking for your name, or where you were born. I’m not asking about your profession, or your field of study. I’m not asking about what has happened to you in the past. And I’m not asking about your family, or who you’re dating. I’m asking about you.  Who are you? Finding oneself being lost in life, lost in translation, happens to all of us at some point in our life. If you’re feeling lost, then it’s exactly where you need to be right now. Be thankful to life, for always having your back. Be thankful for the path you’ve travelled; the way it has moulded you, and strengthened your sense of Self. Be thankful for where you are at this moment. With every breath; die with the past, surrender to the future, and awaken to the sound of your present heartbeat. The beauty of life lies in the simplest of things. You don’t have to feel obligated to write a list filled with material goals …

October intentions

”Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.” – Lao Tzu Every once in a while it’s good to take a seat in the passenger seat, and take time to reflect; catch up on your thoughts, behaviours, intentions and goals. Writing down clear intentions in the beginning of each month is a great way to tap into yourself, your wants and desires. After declaring your monthly intentions you’re ready to take inspired action. If you commit to your intentions by taking aligned action, you’ll likely end up where you want to go (or somewhere even better).  ”Vivid as the ocean, infinite as the sky, colourful as the leaves go by. Take a glimpse at nature, a glimpse at the stars; remember, your true power is always found within, and beneath, your scars.”   1. Patience (is also a form of action) ”Just let it naturally evolve” Or like Buddha once said; ”Be where you are; otherwise you will miss your life.” Show gratitude for what you have, for where you are at the exact moment. …

Dear October…

… you’re like the warmest, most passionate hug. Kiss me, empower me. Don’t ever leave. ”While some people like to dance underneath the stars in June, others like to play with the red leaves of October, and I’m blissfully, wholeheartedly stuck in the middle.”   Like the wisest of them all, dear October; you’re letting go of what no longer serves you. Your brisk wind makes everything rejuvenating. Clear intentions. Clear thoughts. Making room for what’s new. The days; alluring and brightful, the nights; dark and calm. I sense there’s a star waiting to be born, intentions waiting to be established, a nature waiting to be cherished, a life waiting to be lived.  October is for watching the red leaves falling. Letting go. Taking action, working hard. Believing in the power of the soul. Believing in oneself. Loving oneself. Just like nature, we transform. Becoming whole, empowered and complete. Putting positive intentions into everything we do. Dare to dream big; if it scares you it means you’ll grow. Silently witness the beauty of nature. Notice …

Never be afraid of change

”Choose to shine even after all the storms you’ve been through.”   Change can be hard, intimidating and messy. Painful even. However, in order to grow as humans we’ve to change. We’ve to challenge ourselves, and never be afraid of trying new things. Stay open minded – the world is limitless. Stay curious -the world is filled with possibilities. Change is helping you to become the person you’re meant to become.  Rule number 1 – You are not here to make others understand you. You’re here to understand yourself. The more you get to know yourself, the more effortless your life will become. Aristotle once said: ”Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.”  It’s usually through change that you’ll find your true, authentic self. Change can of course be painless, simple and smooth – especially if you’re the one in charge of the change. Then I believe it’s more about the internal change, in other words; If you want to change what’s going on around you, you’ve to change what’s going on within you. Still, there …

Dear September…

… your colorful and humble character awakens my soul. ”I can hear autumn laughing in the breeze.”   The leaves shine bright in warm golden light. Utterly mesmerized, while watching summer falling so artlessly in love with September, whispering final words of goodbyes. Be aware darling human, be aware, you’re shifting just like the softest, brittlest wind. Stay open, be alert, now is the perfect time for a rebirth. While I’ve always kept summer close to my heart, still and all I believe my soul breathes for fall.  September is for blissful mornings. Dark, quiet evenings. Golden opportunities from dusk till dawn. The bright warming sunlight caressing thirsty hearts. Awaken dear human, awaken your soul; September is for seeking knowledge, the truth resting deep within. Savor every breath of this moment, while summer so effortlessly turns into fall. It’s pure beauty, pure art. Nature soothes us with her colorful heart. Wherever we go, whenever we fall, Mother Nature’s passionate spirit embraces us all. Make a choice, take the leap, and don’t you dare to forget your …

The Law of Attraction

”I have the power to create my own reality.” What you send out into the universe – your thoughts, feelings, words – you attract into your life. Using positive thinking, abundant thinking, visualization and setting intentions are great things in order to start creating the life you want. It’s all about shifting your focus. Shifting your perspectives. Like turning a negative day into a great day. It all starts with you.  However, it’s not enough to simply write or speak about the things you want in life. You have to believe, in order to receive. If you don’t believe in yourself and all that you’re capable of, nothing much will grow out of it. What is more you’ll have to begin to take inspired action, daily. It’s not enough to simply sit on the coach, listening to inspirational podcasts or visualising dreams and goals coming through (I’m sure guilty of that!) ”Bring your thoughts to a higher level.” In order for the magic to start flowing into your life you’ve to take action. Action, my dear. …
