Live a little

”Don’t be afraid to try new things. Just live a little.”   I’ve had a very productive weekend. With almost 16 hours of psychology studies (brain anatomy), I felt I needed some kind of balance not to go insane. I brushed off my painting brushes and spent Saturday evening messing with light spring colors. Oh how I adore this time of the year! The sun makes me too restless, however, her light energy always transmits me joy and peace. I’ve also decided to start recording some of my texts. The reason being; I just need to step out of that comfy comfort zone of mine. I strongly believe in the importance of doing things that scare you. We shouldn’t be afraid of trying new things – instead we should live a little. Shouldn’t we? We don’t have to be perfect. We just have to be ourselves. I challenge you to do something this week you never done before; whether it’s talking to a stranger, waking up one hour earlier, eating healthier, speaking kindness, or trying …

Dear March…

… let’s bring presence into everything we do, shall we? ”What flows, flows. What crashes, crashes.” I hear spring whisper softly in the garden. The way she melts frozen hearts. Time to be bold, take the leap, and know, on cloudy days the sun is still there, underneath. Darling, I believe we’ll become dearest of friends. I wish to see you laugh. I hope you make me laugh. Oh how you melt my heart – come, dance with me. Darling, spin with me. And before I fall asleep, remember, gently kiss me on my cheek, and know, you’ll always be the one I seek.  March is for the sun so boldly shining. Coming alive. Quietly crying for the moon, and the stars. Time standing still, frozen, for us. Snow will be falling, flowers start blooming. A precious mix when nature can’t decide. 4 am, and my mind intense, the breath calm. Smelling hope, kissing the soft morning rain, moving with the waves. They say I drive too fast, think too fast, live too fast. No such …

Speak truthfully

”Dare to speak up for the things important to you.”   Staying true to one’s inner voice in a world filled with chaos might not always be the easiest thing to do. Surrounded by an immense amount of impressions and pressure we’re trying to find our way, seeking truth in an untruthful world. It’s time to take the blindfolds off – it’s time to speak the truth.  One of my intentions this March (and for the whole year) is to live truthfully. But what does it actually mean, to live truthfully? It’s about speaking up for the things important to you, the things that make your heart pound a little faster. It’s about daring to be yourself, staying curious and alive. It’s about letting kindness, wisdom and compassion guide you on your way. Knowing that it’s never too late to expand your horizon, never too late to grow and develop into the human you’re meant to be. People change, you change. Stay open. Be alert. It’s about trusting yourself, knowing that you have the power within. …

Dear February…

… let’s live truthfully, shall we? ”Meet me at midnight, underneath the stars. I’ll bring my books and you’ll bring your heart.” Darling February, during your darkest of hours my first screaming breathe, with you. Flawless, being one with your calmness. Just like the cold winter you embrace our deepest desires, our deepest needs. Forcing us to step into our own power. Becoming fearless, living life honestly. Guided by love, compassion and courage, truthfully ever after.  February is for evolving, getting one year richer. One year wiser. Staying curious, and open-minded. Finding joy and laughter, everything we sought after. It’s about speaking up, being true to our own unique voice. It’s time to stop being afraid of getting older – it’s time to show our deepest appreciation instead. Every day we have a chance to learn more about ourselves, we have the opportunity to grow and to grasp the meaning behind our experiences. We have the possibility to fall in love with our imperfections, as well as our strengths. With age comes knowledge, not only the …

#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, …

2019 intentions

”Everything you need, seek and long for is already within.” I feel it’s a beginning of a new cycle of life. Not only because it’s a new year, but I can feel fresh faced optimism floating in the air. Do you sense it as well? I’m a firm believer in writing my intentions, goals and dreams down, preferably on a piece of paper. I guess I am more of a dreamer/planner than a doer. However, my intentions for 2019 is all about taking action and believing in myself and my abilities. You can choose to write daily, weekly, monthly and/or yearly intentions. I prefer to write my intentions in the beginning of every month, as well as set one daily intention that helps guiding me throughout the day. Setting intentions not only makes it easier to stay focused, but it helps to keep the motivation up as well as staying more grounded and closer to one’s core self. Below you’ll find some of my intentions for the year ahead. I’m pretty sure I’ll come up …

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. …
