Hi lovelies we are coming into full moon in libra this evening with a focus on letting go off feelings, patterns, emotions, people or experiences that is holding us back from expressing ourself. Letting go of what is holding you back from being your true-self.


Full Moon in Libra:

“You might have a strong need for balance and harmony now. You probably desire to keep things “nice” rather than venturing into fundamental questions in order not to disturb the peace. You must learn to share your good and bad feelings. Do not be afraid to be who you really are, despite what is expected of you.”


I´m so grateful for having a group of strong, independent, honest and magnificent souls-sisters who come together for full moons and new moons. We share, laugh, cry, meditate, sing, hold space for each other and let go and manifest.

Maybe you feel like this is a ritual that you would like to integrate into your life, but you are not sure how to?
Start with asking friends of yours that you feel safe with and introduce this ritual as a way of coming into deeper friendship and connection, it might start out with just a few people, and that is ok. Because it does not matter how many people you are. What matters is the intention and your presence.



FULL MOON CEREMONY RITUALS

Cleanse the space and the participants with sage

Come into a circle

Open the circle with deep breaths and releasing out

Write down what you need to release and let go off

Meditate on it

Hold space and allow everyone attending to share, if they wish to share

Sing, laugh (what ever feels right in the moment)

Burn your writings to release them back into the universe


The rituals are usually always a part of our moon ceremonies and we also integrate other things from time to time, depending on the energy and needs at the actual time it is happening. Feeling into the moment.

Hi love tribe, hope your soul is on fire and that you are radiating love and joy.

I´ve had a pretty emotional week, feeling a lot of different things, being happy, joyful, energised but also really tired, annoyed and anxious. It is new moon today, so it also makes sense that its been a bit of a mix of emotions the last couple of days. So today I needed some clarity and comfort, and I will do a new moon meditation later just to clarify the goals I set at the previous full moon and work on my manifestations.

I will do a post dedicated to new moon rituals very soon, but this post was really to recommend a great podcast episode that I listened to today. Which gave me good energy and also, helped me ground and release some of the anxious feelings I´ve been channelling.

ANCIENT WISDOM TODAY with SHAMAN DUREK
is a great podcast with so many great topics, ideas, meditations and wisdom.

“Defining your reality”

it is one of the latest episodes on the podcast and it just allowed me to shift my mind back in the right direction. Reminding me of being me fully, allowing myself to express myself how I want to express. Allow my soul to do what makes me happy. And that I am the creater of my life and my reality.

I hope you will have an amazing day, be yourself and stop doing things that does not serve your soul and that makes you feel like you are not being true to yourself.

Hiya all wonderful beings, hope you are having a magical day.

I feel like sharing some wisdom on the topic yoga, and what yoga truly is. Yoga and mindfulness are becoming very popular and there are millions of inspiring social media accounts flourishing with beautiful pictures and so called perfect yoga poses and many people are discovering yoga and meditation practise every day.

I also admit that social media gets to me a bit as well, social media holds so much power and its easy to get caught up in this unconscious world that is programming us to believe, buy and change our mindset to what suits them.

Yoga is so much more than the movements that we do on a mat a few times a week, it is an ancient philosophy with 8 steps to reach the state of bliss, contentment and stillness in meditation.

The 8 steps all work together to help you arrive at Samahdi;
oneness with the act of meditation.

Yoga as we know it in the west is the third step called asana. Preparing our bodies and mind with movement before coming into meditation. Then the forth step which is pranayama – practise of the breath, which is also briefly touched on in “western” yoga.

Yoga is not about looking beautiful in a pose or pushing yourself to attend as many classes as you can per week, or building muscles.
Yoga is about balance, love, contentment, acceptance, fun, stillness, peace, mindfulness, honesty & much much more.

I´m a teacher of yoga and also a practiser of authentic yoga, and no I cant perform many of the asanas that we see on social media and that is completely fine, because this journey I´m on is not about accessing the poses that look amazing and that are really hard. My journey is about real yoga. My practise has not reached perfection, I might not even reach “perfection”. But as long as my daily yoga practise is not about becoming fit and looking beautiful, but about balance, love, contentment and joy; I´m satisfied.

So this pose might not look like yoga to you, and it is far from perfect that is for sure. But it is yoga. Its me accepting that I am as I am.

Hi love tribe, soul sisters and brothers.
I´m sending you good energy and love from little Norway to where you are located. I hope you are in a good flow and that you are on a journey that fuels your life with positive vibes and happiness.

My journey to become the most authentic, present and loving being that I can be is filled with reading loads of spiritual books, poems and quotes and listening to podcasts that is brining me closer to peace. Many of these readings have truly touched my soul and helped me through different difficult or tricky situations. I used to have screenshots of them on my phone, and go back on it whenever I needed some closure or guidance.

Having it on my phone is great, but having it on my wall in my bedroom is even better. Every morning or evening I get to read my favourite quotes, poems and wisdom that makes me filled with joy, happiness, love and good energy.



The wisdom wall is far from done, I´m slowly building it up, hanging up more positive vibes.

I´m currently doing research for a project my love tribe; Golden Goddesses and I are working on, which we are really exited about and I cant wait to share more with you guys. So doing some research I found this beautiful self-love poem, written by unknown author. Reading it for myself, I felt the immediate need to share it with as many people as possible.

Start your week with taking your time reading this poem, and truly find a way to start loving yourself authentically.


As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is AUTHENTICITY.

As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody if I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me. Today I call it RESPECT.

As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow. Today I call it MATURITY.

As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exactly right moment. So I could be calm. Today I call it SELF-CONFIDENCE.

As I began to love myself I quit stealing my own time, and I stopped designing huge projects for the future. Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm. Today I call it SIMPLICITY.

As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Today I know it is LOVE OF ONESELF.

As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since I was wrong less of the time. Today I discovered that is MODESTY.

As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worrying about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where everything is happening. Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it FULFILLMENT.

As I began to love myself I recognised that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But as I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally. Today I call this connection WISDOM OF THE HEART.

We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing new worlds are born.
Today I know THAT IS LIFE.

Good morning amazing tribe, I´m hoping that the new year have started off with good things for you and that you are on a path to becoming the best version of yourself and allowing your mind body and soul enough time for healing.

I´m still in Australia soaking up some much needed vitamin D from its most natural source, doing costal walks, a lot of physical yoga practise and reading 2-3 hours everyday. The last two weeks have been a time for me to charge the batteries and prepare for a new exiting year, with many new things being added to my life when I go back home. I want to be 200% present with myself, so I can put that energy into creating amazing things and help others to become more connected and conscious, becoming a better version of them self.

I believe that we all have to be in contact with ourselves and have a loving relationship with ourselves to be able to bring love and care to the world we live in. From my past experience I´ve learned that in order to heal and help the people around, you need to be in that state of unconditional love with yourself and your life. In order to maintain this state we need to nourish our mind, body and spirit.

TAKE THE TIME TO HEAL

This is so important, taking the time to heal.
For many of us living in harsh long winter conditions, we sometimes tend to need more nourishment than those living in warmer climate. Wherever you live, whatever your life situation is, take the time and listing to what your body is telling you. What are the signs of what you need?

I need warm weather and sun, not all the time, because I love the seasons and I love the winter, but my mind, body and soul does not love the winter and the darkness for 5 months straight. So one of my healing methods during the winter is to respect that I need sun, and take action and go where the sun is. When I get there, I make sure that I stay present and that I take the time to truly send love and thanks to the sun for healing me.

When I respect my body and listen to it, and pay attention to the signals, I notice the difference straight away. I allow myself time to heal. This results in me being able to bring more good vibes out to the world and little by little make this world a more loving place.

I hope from the deepest loving place in my heart that you see that that is so important and that you, if our not already healing yourself, will join me on this path. If you are unsure of what you need; start journaling. Writing down when you notice that you are having a hard time, notice what the reasons are and slowly start making a map of what type of healing you need for different times of the year and for different situations.

I hope you are ready to start the new year working on unconditional love for yourself and your own healing journey, so you can become a part of the love revolution, healing the world.

Coming back to Australia for holiday started with some obstacles that I was not prepared for; As long as you flow with it and stay present in the moment of change the problems tend to seem smaller and will have a lesser negative effect on you. I love planning and follow plans, but the more I want to stick to the plan the less it works out, and disappointment occur. This pattern of planning and disappointment have thought me to be more present in the moment right now, and embrace any change that might happen to my plan.

Practising more presences have truly helped me in difficult situations or whenever things are not going the way I want them to, I try to take a few deep breaths and bring myself back to the current moment, and tell myself that this is what is is right now, analyse the current situations. Often it turns out that the current moment – the situations is not as bad as your mind is making it up to be. Just because its not what you hoped for or wanted it to be, does not mean its necessarily bad. If you have a positive mindset, any bad situation can be turned around.

The obstacles I´ve had on this trip, was a gentle reminder of being more present in the now, and not worry to much about the plan that I have mapped out. I believe that we are given what we need or have attracted in most cases true out life, and at this time in life I needed to embrace change, a difficult situation and work on being present in the now.

Happy 2019, we are just entering a new year, with new days filled with new opportunities and experiences.
I was supposed to end the year and start the new year at an ashram here in Australia, but this plan took a bit of a turn.
I truly believe that listing to our intuition is is so important for when we make decision or choose a path. I had a very serious experience of listing to my intuition this past week.

As I arrived at the ashram I had this worrying feeling in my stomach from the beginning, which I at first tried to ignore. I ignored this feeling of anxiety and stress for a day, even though this ashram turned out to be nothing like the online descriptions of it. I was all alone with the man running this place, ( which turned out to be his house with no signes of it actually being a retreat or ashram) in the middle of nowhere with the closest neighbour 3km away, and no phone connection. After spending two days at this place I was feeling more stressed than I ever had in my life, finding myself in a situation I was not prepared for.

A part of me was telling me to suck it up and stay because I planned to stay for 10 days and that I should stick to my plan, and hoping it would get better. But then my intuition was shouting at me to find a way to escape, my whole body was screaming for an escape. I did not trust this person at all, so asking him to take me back to civilisation was not an option at all.
I had no phone connection and was not able to call anyone, so my only option was to run, but I had a heavy backpack so I would never be able to get away during the day, as I was stuck with him at all times.
I therefore managed to pack up my things right before going to bed, then I was laying in bed listing to any confirming sounds that he was asleep. After 3 hours I carefully walked down to the floor he was sleeping on, I heard he was snoring, and I grabbed all my belongings and snuck out. I half run through this dirt road in the forest for 3km until I reach the closest neighbour ( which was a lovely lady that I thankfully had met the day before)
I ended up hiding in a teepee she had in her garden, spending the night crawled up there, and thankfully the next morning they helped me get away from this place being the most loving people, just what I needed at this point.

I`m so grateful for listing to my intuition and getting away from a situation that was a real unpleasant experience and I also believe that the universe is taking me in the direction that I should go in, so there was a purpose for this, teaching me that sticking to the plan is not always the best option, and testing my abilities to look after myself.

Instead of letting this experience eat me up I just turned it around to a positive, as I got to spend three amazing days with my lovely friend up the Sunshine Coast and then another 4 days at my other friends tranquil farm, so I feel so blessed and at ease now after having these relaxing days surrounded by amazing nature and great people.

Life is a constant wave of change, and if we get to stuck in a routine or obsessed with our initial plan we will miss out on great experiences that will come our way, experiences that was maybe what we truly should have experienced. So be open-minded to change and allow yourself to drift off from your original plan and listen to your intuition.

Hi wonderful people
we are more than half way through December already, the year of 2018 is almost over, and wow what a year it has been. My year has been such a transformative journey, with many positives, some negatives, but all summed up; together they have made it a great year, both good and bad. We all go through different stages of our life, this year has been mostly focusing on truly connecting myself with myself, and seeking for what I should spend my time doing. Which is really and endless journey as we and everything is constantly changing.  

This past year has been a true transformation and reflecting back on my state of mind a year ago, I feel so grateful for where I am with myself right now.

I´m going to end the year much more mindfully than how my last year ended, I will spend the whole christmas period and New Years at a small meditation ashram in the bushes of Australia without technology. I´m doing 10 days of karma yoga, which means I will be working at the ashram a few hours everyday and then all my free time will be dedicated to deepening my meditation and yoga practise, focus inwards and give myself time to manifest new things for the beginning of the new year. I will spend a  month in Australia, catching up with friends and escaping winter for a litte while, I also have amazing things happening when I get back to Norway, which I will share with you in the beginning of the new year. 

I believe that we all need to take responsibility for our own happiness, joy, or future and life here and now, so to me it was not really hard to make the decision to not celebrate christmas, it is something I´ve been becoming more aware of the last couple of years. Reflecting upon it; christmas means very little to me. The typical christmas traditions, especially the food are so far from my ethical standards that it feels nothing but right to chose to not participate this year, I feel that its time for me to start new traditions.    

What ever you choose to do for the rest of the year, I do hope you do it mindfully with intention and loads of love.

All experiences are creating our life journey and what we become, as long as we mange to accept them all, work with them and not let them work against us.

Somehow we only wish for the great experiences that are making us feel good and happy, living in a constant world of bliss and comfort. There is no such thing. There is not a life lived without unpleasant experiences, they will occur, sometimes only stroking us gently, other times they tend to stay around longer, trying to strangle us. What we need to come to terms with is that the unpleasant and discomfortable experience are a part of who we are, apart of or life experience. A part of our soul, our mind and our journey.
Fighting against them or denying their presence will lead us into more suffering.

SUFFERING  
TO UNDERGO OR FEEL PAIN OR DISTESS

Coming to terms with our unpleasant experiences will bring us into higher consciousness & you will be able to allow yourself to use the pain to grow and move forward to the next chapter of your life. It will help you manifest new goals for improvement and it will take you further. Wether you are a believer in “everything happens for a reason” or not does not matter, as long as you accept the difficult experiences you have as a part of your life. Not letting the bad experiences be who you are, but simply accepting them as a part of your life experience & opportunities for greater experiences.

Accept. Work with them. Overcome. Benefit.
