Beautiful minds

”If you only knew all the things you’re capable of… Darling, imagine all that you could do!”   We’re amazing creatures. We’ve travelled to the moon, cured illnesses, developed micro processes, written master pieces, created astonishing art and breathtaking architecture. The human mind is impressive. You’re impressive. Don’t you ever forget just how extraordinary you are. Cultivating the power within will help you reach goals more easily. It will help you create a life filled with happiness, love and abundance. A life blooming with opportunities. With cultivating the power within I mean having trust and faith within yourself; a deep trust that you’re capable of achieving all of your desires. You see, it all starts with believing in yourself. You have to rewire your thoughts if that’s what it takes – shift the way you perceive yourself, and become aware of the words you use to describe yourself. If you’re constantly doubting yourself, and your ability to accomplish certain things you’ll have difficulties proceeding and succeeding, and most likely your life will become stagnant. With that …

Present Moment Experience

”In most cases, the universe does not allow us to move forward until we have honored where we are right know.”   The leaves dancing in the breath of wind, as the bird performing its final poem. Until next year, dear humming creature, until next year. The warm breeze caressing my fragile skin. Breathing it all in, while autumn laughing in the warm-hearted wind. I’ll carry your lyrics, wherever I go. Sing to me, little creature, sing to me.  This is the door to all that is. Celebrate the moment, and awake to the magic unfolding.  The present moment – the only moment there is for us to be alive. Humans are very good at preparing to live, but not very good a living. Habitually dwelling in the past and dreaming of the future, while having difficulties concentrating the mind on the present moment. Wherever you are – know that you are home. Wherever you find yourself; whether you’re stuck in a rut, anxious, or simply lost in the fast spinning outside world – whatever …

How to get through difficult change

”Your eyes talk to me all the time. Totally unaware of your words, speaking their own, unique language.   I like that language.”   Change is inevitable, growth is optional. Whether or not it’s good change, bad change – change we create ourselves or change that we don’t have control over – both natural and spontaneous changes will happen throughout your life. Don’t resist them, since that only creates sadness and struggle, instead learn to flow with the current. Letting things flow naturally is, however, easier said than done. It requires a great deal of patience and an eagerness to reclaim the power that might have been lost along the way. Last but not least, you should always remember not to be too hard on yourself. You’re only human after all.   ”It’s not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.” – Charles Darwin   With this being said, below you’ll find a few life perspectives that hopefully can assist you when you find …

Seeking stillness

”Be still and observe – The Earth is dancing.”   I am ”I just want to sit in front of the ocean for a little while” kind of person. Whenever I need to find stillness I go to the ocean. The sense of calmness, and the sound of the waves always bring peace to my soul. I’ve always lived close to the sea; I grew up on the coast, in a small town in Finland, and I’ve always seen myself living close to the water. Wherever I move there needs to be water. Water is life.  Today I took a short daytrip to change up my scenery – you don’t have to go far in order to get some new perspectives on things. Stockholm archipelago is amazingly beautiful this time of the year. I brought me, myself and my MacBook (and some delicious vegan cinnamon buns). The perfect recipe for a picnic I would say. ”A quiet mind is able to hear intuition over fear.” I’ve noticed that the quieter I become, the more I …

A good human

Let’s talk about self-development. ”We are magic, aren’t we? – Humans Life is not about reaching the destination, it’s about enjoying the journey. Life is not about waiting for opportunities to come to you; it’s about creating opportunities. I read somewhere that we people don’t decide our futures; we decide our habits and our habits decide our futures.  Cultivating self-development, self-growth, should be on top of your to-do-list, or in other words it should be a daily habit of yours to always strive to be the best version of yourself. You see, life is your call. Every area of life is your call. Life isn’t happening to you; life is responding to you. You’re the creator – you decide what your life will be. You decide how the next chapter will begin, and how the story will unfold. ”Wild. My darling, be wild. Don’t let them tame you.” Surround yourself with people that encourage intellectual, emotional, artistic or spiritual growth. People that encourage you to be the best version of you. Learn to become the …

Small aspirations

  ”Meet me underneath the moonlit sky somewhere and let’s come alive my dear.” Ah, life. Aren’t you a remarkable experience. Treating us with all these amazing yet, sometimes bloody challenging opportunities. If humans only knew they are their only limit. Let’s tell them, dear life. Let’s tell them!   Small aspirations ”Seek what sets your beautiful soul on fire.” Smile often. Value nature. Speak to strangers. Discover new music. Use daily affirmations; I am fearless. Cultivate a beautiful mindset. Be gentle with yourself. Be mindful; smell the flowers, kiss passionately, talk to animals. Educate that beautiful mind of yours. Care less about what other people do. Speak love. Be kinder. Drink your greens. Shine, just shine baby. Spend less time on social media and more time with friends & family. Call your parents. Make goals happen. Say what’s on your mind. Practise yoga. Travel. Remember; life is better in a bikini. Sing in the shower; I do not care if you can sing or not, just sing. Put your favourite music on and d.a.n.c.e. …

Spring cleaning your home

”Embrace the now with awareness, and make room for new, uplifting intentions. Notice the birds singing, the trees blooming. The future is created in the present. ”   Spring cleaning your home, aka your mind & body, is an excellent way of getting rid of limiting beliefs and self-doubt, as well as negative thoughts that might hold you back from reaching your true potential. Below you’ll find my top tips for cleaning your home this spring.  Before you can start your spring cleaning you’ll have to become aware of what’s holding you back. Are you always comparing yourself to others? Not thinking you’re worthy of all the abundance that life has to offer? Do you have problems forgiving yourself for past behaviours? Do you have problems forgiving someone else? Or do you simply feed your mind with negative self-talk morning to evening? Take your time to figure out what it is that you struggle with the most; the things you need to get rid of in order to blossom like an early spring day. This …

The beauty of aging

”Every day is a privilege to learn more about yourself, life and all its mysteries.”   Just like the Moon we go through phases, and just like the seasons we change. And like the midnight sky we shine like a million of stars, just like we cry like heavy clouds on a rainy Sunday evening. Life is beautiful in all its stages. Every morning we receive the gift of a new day. We get to grow one day older, and that my dear, is a gift greater than life itself.  Stop being afraid of getting older, show your deepest appreciation instead. The beauty of evolving, and getting wiser is a privilege. Every day we have a chance to learn more about ourselves, we have the opportunity to grow and learn from our experiences. We have the possibility to fall in love with our imperfections, our strengths and all our quirks. I believe that with age comes knowledge, not only the one found in books, but from life. You might find yourself in a situation where …

Breathe

”Breathe in life. Breathe out fear. Breathe in every moment. Breathe out every pain.”   My life is pretty hectic at the moment; I have to move by the end of next month, I’m studying for an entrance exam, I decided to participate in a writing competition, I work at a cruise ship, sailing between Finland and Sweden, AND I’m food blogging as well as writing bits and pieces for this blog (my precious baby). When life is busy it’s even more important to chill out a bit – to learn to relax, and find a quiet and peaceful moment every day. Yes, I would like to have more time to study for the entrance exam, but here on the ship it’s pretty darn difficult to find that extra time. However, I know everything will be just fine. And already next week I will go and look at an apartment; the very first one I applied for. Oh well, it’s just a look. Anyhow, it’s completely new so it would be awesome. One can at least …

Mindset is everything

”Chaos is only understood when it’s loved by the wild, not the weak.”   I believe in me, and you should too; believe in yourself. Do not become small for people who refuse to grow. The less you respond to negative people, the more peaceful your life will become. Remember that no one is coming to save you. This life is 100 % your responsibility. Brave human, never settle again.    ”The hardest step she ever took was to blindly trust in who she was. – Atticus Believing in yourself is the first secret of success. Your mind will always believe everything you tell it. Feed it with love. Feed it with truth. It’s never too late to start living the life you always dreamt of. One day you just have to decide to jump, not knowing where you will land. Having the courage, although life is uncertain, will take you to places you never thought of exploring. Dear human, be brave, have faith. Life will reward you if you decide to never give up. I …
