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

Happy Summer days to all wonderful beautiful humans out there. Hope you are having an amazing time wherever you are, loving your life and the path you are on right at this moment. I´m having a little weekend get a way at my childhood home, this place is just heaven on earth in the Summer. I´m truly blessed to be able to come home to this place and feel this peace that settles in me every time I´m here.

……..

This month I felt like sharing a cleaning / kitchen essential eco tip with you lovelies. Washing clothes is something every household have in their kitchen, and many people tend to purchase the cheap packs of cloth´s that you only use for a couple of times before they end up in the garbage. This is such a unnecessary waist, that is super easy to avoid. My mother solved this problem i few yeas a go by simply knitting her own cotton cloths that can be put in the washing machine after a few times use, then its good to go again. This is much more environmental friendly and they also look so much better than the cheap once you buy at the store.

If you dont know how to knit yourself or you have no one who can do it for you; check out this page they have some cute once, or Ebay is a good source as well.

I was lucky enough to discover Oslo Community Mindfulness at the beginning of this year. I was searching for meditation practises around Oslo, in desperate need of rebalancing and grounding. It was a time in my life when I were in much need of finding stillness, letting go of emotions and feelings I was holding onto so tight, that I was losing myself in them. I could not have asked for a better time to discover this amazing group, I believe that things come to you when its the right time for it and when you are open to receiving.

Oslo Community Mindfulness is a free meditation and mindful gathering in Oslo. We meet once a week no obligations, you come as you are and you meditate in the presence of everyone else who comes to the gathering. We also have mindful conversations after the meditation practise, which is a beautiful way to close the meditation with. I have attended it for six months now, and it has truly made such a huge impact to my life. I have also become apart of the facilitation group, so I´m leading the meetings on occasions, which is great for the self-development journey that I am on.

Check out our Facebook page 

 

If you are passing by Oslo or if you live here,  feel free to join our Facebook group and come to a meeting whenever you feel like its your time to join us.

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.”

Humans spend most of their time on their feet, laying down or seated, we usually do not spend much time upside down. I believe we all can benefit from turning our world upside down and reverse our blood flow & our point of view. Doing headstands or shoulder-stands are a great way to practise reversing our perspective and  it has many great benefits to your body & soul.

I do not recommend you to jump straight into headstands or shoulder-stands if you have no previous experience with it, practise this postures with long time yogis or qualified yoga teacher, someone who can guide you, then progressing to using the wall before you move onto full versions. Doing these postures wrong can cause injuries, so make sure you respect your own body by practising safe.


A few benefits of headstand

Reversing the blood flow, improving blood flow to head, eyes and scalp.

Relief stress

Improve your digestive system

Improve core, arm and shoulder strength.

Help remove toxics from your blood system.

  A little piece of beautiful craft that I have had passed on from my grandmother. Vintage lace and amazingly soft silk, I cant even begin to imagine how old this little cameo is, and to all the places she has worn it. Maybe it was even a gift to her from my grandfather once? I love imaging the stories of all vintage things. It also makes me appreciate wearing it much more, knowing it has a story, a passed life. One day Ill pass it one to someone else, to create new journeys.

The best of everything in a week. I got to spend some time at home swimming in the ocean and doing morning yoga, then I went up in the mountains for a couple of mesmerising hikes, swimming in the freezing cold mountain rivers. Continued with two amazing days at a private camp/ festival in the forest on the riverbank, with amazing girlfriends and connecting with new beautiful people.

All of this equals so much happiness, love and gratitude towards life, it is just unbelievable how amazing it can be.




Sherpas are doing such amazing work making the mountains more available to everyone who wants to experience the magic of mountains. Make sure you send some gratitude to them next time you go hiking.

“Someday our souls will be one 
and our union will be forever.
I know that everything I give you, will come back to me.
So I give you my life. Hoping that you will come back to me.”

I belive that you can not live a completely happy life without a healthy diet. I feel the benefits of living healthy everyday. If I have a couple of days off bad eating routines I can even feel my energy level decreasing, and I feel less fresh as well. To me a 100% plant-based diet with mostly unprocessed foods are the only way to eat by.

Smoothie bowls have become very popular the last years, and you can simply make them yourself at home. I like having them for breakfast, but you can always adjust the recipe/ingredients depending if you are having it for breakfast or lunch.

My favourite is a berry breakfast bowl
