You are worthy

Lately I have been working a lot with my self worth. Now I clearly see that whatever area I have felt displeased with in my life, it has always come down to the fact that I haven’t felt worthy enough. I have also discovered another thing, many times what I have desired has changed once I do feel worthy. I am observing and learning that ultimately what I have been seeking is validation and a feeling of self worth, so many desires simply become redundant once that feeling is achieved some other way. I can give you a example. If I am feeling sensitive and insecure about my physical appearance, I might desire compliments from the opposite sex, but once I feel fabulous about myself and really dig myself, those compliments are no longer what I desire or need from a man. Their words might be appreciated as beautiful sprinkles on my cake, but the creamy gooey stuff in the middle is provided by yours truly.

I have seen my own and others desires shift radically once they find a way to feel worthy in the area they desire. It makes me think that we need to focus more on self worth in our society.

You are worthy of all you desires, how does that statement feel to you? You might have a whole arsenal of resistance coming up, bombarding you with negativity, or you might hear a bunch of cheerleaders scream “Hell Yeah!”.
Whatever your response is, I want to invite you to try an exercise with me.

Stand in front of the mirror, gaze deeply into your eyes and say this out loud:

I am worthy of everything I desire.

Say it 3 times (or as many as you desire).

Repeat this as often as you can, like every time you brush your teeth, or passa a mirror.
Tell yourself that you are worthy. Slowly, slowly you’ll feel empowered and you’ll begin to see what it is your heart truly desires.

Happy Healing, You’re worth it!

Teatime with Fear.

This past new moon fear payed me a visit, or more accurately, I invited her. I’m happy I did though, because this visit brought me lots of clarity.

I have carried many fears inside this body over the years, and still have some left, fear of what others think of me, fear of letting go, fear of being a bad mother, fear of being a bad partner, fear of failing at my life purpose, fear of not having been a good enough daughter, or a good enough friend, fear of not honoring my heart and my dreams. All in all I have had a fear of failing at this human experience.

When I type it out like this, it sounds silly, doesn’t it?
How can one fail at being human? The answer that pure logic delivers to me, is that you can’t. It’s simply impossible. Being human means being flawed, that is the human perfection.

“Being human means being flawed, that is the human perfection.”

So what I am uncovering is something that I think I have known all along.
I am perfect, my fears are beautiful teachers that come to teach me that there are some areas inside me that need more love, and to show me the magic I possess in creating a beautiful experience for myself and others on this planet. I know  that in this reality, on planet Tellus, without darkness there really is no light. We must embrace both to see the other. I’m not saying you have to grow through pain, you don’t, you can definitely grow through love, and you should. I’m telling you that when you embrace your fears and start seeing them as caring friends, then you start feeling that they aren’t that bad, It becomes more pleasant and interesting when they visit.

Sometimes they become like distant relatives that come very seldom, and that is nice too, but when they do come, sit with them, be present,  ask them questions, brew them a cup of tea and have a heart to hearth conversation. I am sure you’ll learn something beautiful about yourself, I know I did.

Sending you all lots of love and light.

Kale sweet Kale

I’ve been waiting for the Kale season to kick in for a long time now.
In Sweden Kale is popular during the Holidays, that means that EVERY grocery store carries Kale this time of year, and they usually have organic kale too. So It’s an understatement to say that I’m overdosing on Kale these days. I’m basically starting my day with a Kales smoothie and ending it with Kale chips from the dehydrator.

1 Cup of water
5 mint leaves

Enjoy this delicious green smoothie in the morning and you will fell like you have energy to move mountains.

I wish you a healthy and happy day!

Self Massage

Beautiful Sister and Brother. Do you ever feel that you get wrapped up in the outer world too much? Do you feel a bit stressed? like you  are rushing through life? Maybe you feel that you are just trying to get from A to B? Thinking too much and feeling too little? You are definitely not alone in feeling this way. This is a common phenomena in our time. We focus more on our outer world than on our inner world. Constant distractions like laptops and phones keep our minds disconnected form our bodies. The sad thing is that a long time exposure to this stress seems to lead to an increasing  sense of fear and a greater lack of self love.

So how do we shift this behavior? How do we stop ourselves form getting lost in in the outer world? My belief is that we must make our inner world more important. Find ways to connect with all of ourselves, mind, body spirit.

I find that a great way to help the restless mind become more present in my body, is to practice self massage. It’s a phenomenal practice that  can calm your nerves and increases your self love and appreciation.
self massageIt’s easy to perform this massage, you simply start by rubbing your fingers on your skalp, work your way down to the ears, face, neck, arms, and hands on each side, chest, back, belly, hips, butt, genitals, thighs, calves and end with a foot rubb. This procedure takes 5- 15 min, depending on how much time you want to spend on every body part.

It might be hard to reach your back, if you want to give your back some extra appreciation, you can lay down on your back and place a tennisboll underneath yourself and roll it upp and down with your body, or you can lean against a door post to apply some pressure to those muscles. As you go through each body part, thank it for it’s service to you, feel it, how does it feel? Try to breath into, and be present in every body part. You can do this practice any time of the day, maybe after you shower and want to rubb in some oil?  There are many beautiful oils out there that will nurture your skin and make you feel luxurious.olive-oil (1),jpg

HERE ARE A FEW TIPS:

Organic Virgin Coconut Oil: The king of oils, you can use it for so many things, cooking, baking, hair care, and as a body lotion. it’s antiseptic and it feels great on your skin.

Our body’s wellbeing and our mental wellbeing really do go hand in hand.

Morning Rituals

the way we start our morning sets the tone for the whole day. I believe that we all could benefit from having a solid morning ritual. A space for ourselves so we can nurture our soul and mind. My morning ritual consists of writing a gratitude letter to all that is, thanking the universe for everything I have, and also for the things I want to have. This is a great way of focusing on appreciation and at the same time remembering my intentions and dreams. I do this while I drink a smoothie and look out the window. Sometimes I use my favorite vintage binoculars and admire some birds and trees from a far, marveling over the beauty of our planet. I usually have a favorite crystal that I hold while I do some deep breathing and contemplate.

Here are a few tips on what you can do as a morning ritual.

1. Practice deep breathing for 3-5 min before enjoying a nice breakfast.
2. Write down your intentions for the day and how you would like to feel today.
3. Do a (quick) self massage, start with your head and end with your feet.
4. Have a smoothie while looking out the window.
5. Dance to your favorite song.
6. Repet your favorite affirmation 10 times in the mirror before you go about your day.

If you don’t already have a great routine that works for you, then I hope you’ll find something you like here. Remember that when you invest time in yourself, you amplify your wellbeing, and when you feel good you do good.

Goddess Love Thyself

IMG_2120Everyone who knows me, know that one of my strongest desires is to help people see their own greatness. I myself have struggled with low self-esteem and lack of self-respect, and I still have a lot of work to do, but I have managed to shift some heavy beliefs. I now see my worth.

I have reconnected with my roots, with the earth and the divine feminine living inside me. I feel so much respect and admiration for my inner Goddess now. I feel I want to honor her with every decision I make. I admit that I still go on auto pilot sometimes, but it’s becoming increasingly hard to do so. She roars and speaks her soul, shouting at me when I make choices out of fear. I have a lot of growing to do, but I am committed to keep working on honoring myself everyday.

IMG_6175

Why I am sharing this with you right now, is because I want you to ask yourself these questions:
1. Do I love myself? 
2. Do I feel that the people around me are loving and kind to me?
3. Do I feel I get the respect I deserve?
4. Am I satisfied with my everyday experience?
5. Do I think that I am beautiful on every level there is?

Sit with these questions for a minute, breathe deeply and see what answers come up.
If you answer No to any question, you like many of us, have some healing to do. Don’t worry, you will see how magnificent you are and what greatness you deserve. Just set the intention to love yourself more, and you’ve just begun a magical ride dear.

I want to be there for you on your journey, so I have decided to start focusing more energy on writing, coaching and creating art focused on Self Love. This is all part of the #Loveolution, I truly believe that you have to Love yourself before you can Love all, when you feel good, you do good with ease.

I wish you lots of happiness and clarity.

I am Love

My cells silently whisper ancient spells in a language long forgotten.

My blood sings me lullabies at nights about the bravery and power of the Goddesses.

My heart beats to the rhythms of their sacred rituals and magical dances.

They are chanting to me, remember sister, remember that you are love.
