Shamanism and the philosophy of yoga are the topics that is taking up my current dedicated reading time. Shamanism and healing is practises that I find very interesting and I need to dive deeper into this world. I  believe we can use it to cure a lot of problems in peoples life´s, much of it is also very relevant to yoga and meditation.
The philosophy of yoga is in my opinion necessary reads if you wish to take your role as a yoga teacher serious and / or your personal practise, as yoga is not about the movement, its yoga as a way of life. You should live. breath. eat. do yoga every second of you life, if you truly wish to obtain the true practise of yoga. I´m hoping to reach that level of perfection someday, but it might not be in this lifetime. 

 

My absolute favourite poem is with me as bookmark. As I carry my book with me almost everywhere I go, I always have this poem with me.
I feel this poem with my whole body, my heart and my soul.

Hola from Spain.
I´m on a family vacation exploring the part of Mallorca that has less nordic tourists, and a real feeling of being in Spain. Living in a rustic AirBnb with views of mountains and nature. Our closest neighbour’s are out of sight, so its very much like being all alone on the countryside, with roosters waking us up in the morning. It is perfect location between the little Port town Pollenca on one side and the old town Pollenca on the other side. We are not much of a laying on the beach type of family, so we have a car going around exploring, which my restless soul is very pleased with.

Something as simple as
the sun asking me out
the perfect
date

People spend so much time commuting to get from one place to another. We often want to live more spacious, often resulting in moving away from the city, but spending more time on travel. I´m one of those people who prefer living cheaper, more spacious and closer to nature, so I therefore have to travel a bit more to get to work or social gatherings. Spending time on public transport can be in my opinion much waist of precious time. Time is running, we cant stop it and I´ve come to learn that I need to spend my precious time as well as I can. My current opinion on my own time use, is that it can get better, something I am working towards. In the mean time I still spend time on transport moving from A to B, so I have become very conscious about spending it as smart as possible.

I used to be one of those people sitting on the metro staring into my phone. Getting off the metro I started realising that I was spending almost 40 minutes everyday travelling. During the 40 minutes of travel I would do absolutely nothing useful. Facebook? Snapchat? Instagram? When I realised this, I started thinking about the number of times this had happened already. I made a choice right there;

NO MORE WAISTING MY PRECIOUS TIME WHILE COMMUTING

……

Commuting more efficient is actually very easy. I have a few ways that I prefer. Either I read a book or I listen to podcasts. I also sometimes meditate.

READ A BOOK

LISTEN TO PODCASTS

MEDITATE


I have also started using a bike and longboard, I´m still not comfortable with the longboard in the city, but around my hood is perfect. Using the bike is great, as going home is only uphill so that way I also get a good exercise out of it. 

If you are still one of the many commuting inefficiently, hopefully you are ready to spend your time more preciously and become more mindful of all the minutes of your day, spending them more efficient.

Hi wonderful souls, hope you are all on the journey to higher consciousness and a deeper self-connection?

I have been practising meditation and mindfulness every day for the last six months, and it is truly changing my life making me a much more content, aware & happy person. I hope that every human out there will discover the benefits of meditation and find more balanced in their own life. I made a little video for you, discussing my journey with meditation, hopefully it makes you curious to discover the benefits of meditation and mindfulness practise in your own life.

P A T I E N C E

an ability or willingness to suppress restlessness or annoyance when confronted with delay.

the quality of being patient, as the bearing of provocation, annoyance, misfortune, or pain, without complaint, loss of temper, irritation, or the like.

 

Patiences is a thing I used to have very little of, patience with myself, with others, with progress, with my mind with jobs. With life. Patiences is growing on me,  it is something I have become very conscious of over the last year. When you start the journey of self-realisation and growth, you have to step outside of your own head and see your flaws and difficulties with new eyes, with honesty and with intention of making progress. One thing I have noticed is that the more patience I become with my own mind the easier it becomes with the influences around me.

Last weekend was spent with deep conversations over all aspects of life, love, mindfulness and how we apply it into our daily life. It is such a privilege to be able to converse about such interesting themes with someone who finds it just as interesting as oneself. I love having my mind and thoughts challenged, so I can have my mind expanded and opened to receive more knowledge and develop a deeper spiritual connection. A deeper connection to myself, other minds and the natural elements that we are surrounded by.


Challenge your mind – challenge your body – Challenge your surroundings – Challenge everything

The last year has been a journey of exploring, creating, developing new interesting friendships and relations, much self-reflection and working on self-growth and finding true contentment with anything that happens in my life. I personally believe that this is a ongoing job, whenever we think we have reached that perfect state, then we will realise there is more to achieve, more work to be done. I´ve reached a point in my life where I´m starting to understand what I want and who I am as a person, which makes me want to keep exploring, growing & achieving.

I completed my very first yoga class this week, and it was feeding the fire inside, sharing one of my many passions with more people. After the sequence I knew that I just completed another very small step in the right direction of becoming my true self. We are humans capable of doing amazing work, we just have to start believing in ourselves and start doing the work. I believe that the more you feel that fire inside of you, the harder you’ll work to achieve that feeling again and again, until you might live, breath and do it daily.


Seek what sets your soul on fire, make it your true self, live breath and be that fire.

Able to concur the enemy.
To master myself would be enough.”

I love flowers & I love wild flowers, they are so beautiful. colourful & raw, just popping up alongside roads, in gardens and everywhere. Wild flowers can make beautiful decorations, bouquets or a homemade flower band for mid-Summer celebration maybe? Another great thing about them is that they are only costing you the time it takes to pick them, which is not a bad trade-off.

they are unpredictable, raw, organic & wild.

Long days. Short nights. Birds singing. Ocean smell. Flirting. Bare foot. Green fields.
