FROM MY HEART!
Everything you do,
should reflect who you are!"
"I am in awe of flowers.
Not because of their colors,
but because even though
they got dirt in their roots,
they still grow.
They still bloom."
D Antoinette Joy
"It may be
that some little root
of the Sacred Tree
Nourish it then,
that it may leaf and bloom
and fill with singing birds.
not for myself,
but for my people;
I am old.
that they may once more
go back into the sacred hoop
and find the Good Red Road,
the shielding tree."
(Black Elk Medicine Man)
"Remember your roots!
Be kind to nature.
Nature is around you and inside you.
You ARE nature.
You can never separate yourself from nature,
even how hard you try.
You have the same source.
The same air is breathing us all.
The same Earth is carrying us all.
Be kind to nature.
What you do to nature,
you do to yourself."

LOVE. HARMONY. FRIENDSHIP.
I love harmonious friendships<3
Lovely, harmonious friendships with flowers.

"There she was...
on the shore of all that would be.
The earth whispered her name.
And she had faith.
She was ready.
She wanted to show the world how to love,
how to open up and how to embrace each other.
She was ready to be the change."
On line with the Universe<3
The new year greeted me so lovely with pure new canvases ready to be explored and lived; frozen, grounding sand and soothing pastel-colored sky. In these times in the world I really dont take all this beauty, peace and blessings for granted<3
"As I return to the ocean of my heart,
I am received as a child again
in a thousand arms of compassion."
An original healing journey
Everyones healing-journey is sacred. There are as many ways to healing as there are people on this planet and beyond. There are funny ways, crazy ways, serious ways, beautiful ways, creative ways, systemic ways, intuitive ways, boring ways......you get it; A LOT of ways. And one way is not really more right than the other. My experience is that to heal to wholeness and inner peace you have to find something that speaks and resonate with YOU. Not with your parents, not with your lover, not with your neighbor, or sister, but with YOU!!!! So many try to copy the exact healing-pattern or -method as other people have succeed with, and find that it doesnt work for them at all. What is lifegiving to one person can be devastating to another, because we are all rare, unique individuals and none of us have been on the exact same journey through life with the exact same baggage, traumas and experiences. So its impossible that the same recipe will work out exactly the same way for everyone. The trick is to find something that feels right in your heart, soul, mind and bones and stick with it for a period of time. Because in the beginning there will be a lot of resistance and fear from the brain against going into the heart and soul and open up the wounds and traumas to the light. They have taken refuge in the dark, been stored a way for a looooong period of time, and there are layers to be peeled, emotions to be felt, and fears to face. So you have to be prepared for the journey of your life. I always love to see creative ways to help people come into the depths of their soul, their inner child, their anger, their sorrow, their pain, their boundaries.....and see them, after the breakthrough, blossom into life, courage and childlike joy.
Here is a link to a really unconventional approach to transcendence:
A Indian master who took a group of people on a motorcycle-ride on crazy, fearful cliff-roads in the Himalayas to find their inner sane and peaceful path to freedom. You can watch it as a docu-series or you can buy it as a expanded course-series with Dharma-talks etc (NB! I am NOT sponsored, I just enjoy watching different ways to healing. So much to learn from everyone going through transformation!)
Soon to be released at a sacred, wild area near you!
Sci-fi-pictures presents: “A sign - The start of our strictly limited future”…..wait...this must be an old one. We have already done this over and over; penetrated our flag in the soil, claimed Mother Earth as our human-right property, treating her as our personal slave, by force removing her huge beautiful areas of open and free greenlands to rule in our human”kind” unique way; graciously making room for pavements, concrete, buildings, industry, pollution, cars, subways, tunnels, railways, fast food, security systems, traffic-lights, signs and laws…...Watch out for the red warning triangles, they will guide you safely towards a happy, healthy, free life……..or was it the other way around?..............
I think the bird with petroleum oil-kissed wings and a neon plastic-ribbon stress-fully wrapped around his claw, moving his family out of the city while taking a quick tour above the river sewage stench, singing intensely from his heart as the small-winged family leave the borderline state of the human race life, is trying to tell me something. But birds of course cant talk, so i don't listen to that kind of conspiracy madness. What does he know. He is just a stupid bird. I am an intelligent human, craving progress. I know what I am doing. I am smart. Or was it the other way around? ..........
Help, I need a sign……or many signs really, to guide me on the golden brick path of true sovereignty in the human-made breathe-less jungle of concrete surrounded by fences of solid steel........
Enjoying the ride?

"I love those random memories
that make me smile,
no matter what is going on in my life right now."
(Lessons learned in life)
"Sometimes you will never know
the value of something
until it becomes a memory"
Down the memory lawn
"Some days I wish I could go back in life.
Not to change anything, but to feel a few things twice."
I love going through my old photo-albums with real, non digital pictures; they are so real that they have started fading in colors and are becoming blurry. Back then we could not check the outcome of the pictures before we got them back from the store. So they were never "perfect", they were just taken in the moment, no posing, no expectations. They were rare gems capturing a moment in time that was precious. There were no filters, no photo-shopping, no cloud to store them away in, no digital tools that did the photo-book-work for you. We just embraced the pictures and ourselves as we were, and afterwards sitting for hours on the floor cutting pictures, gluing them into albums and writing about the sacred experience.
The picture above is me and my little sister; Me multitasking babysitting her at the same time as I was performing my duty of mowing the lawn; a huge lawn, that took over two hours to finish. She held on tight from the start to the end. It was like a peaceful healing meditation, despite the heavy noise from the engine. Being close to those you loved was the ultimate happiness and fulfillment in life, working or not. Sometimes even the other kids in the street jumped onboard to keep company or just to be in a space of love. It was so beautiful and effortless. These were the days when the idea of putting "social" and "distancing" or "social" and "media" in the same context, would be as sinful as swearing loud and clear in church. The only thing that mattered was to be together, being a safe haven for each other and the most immune-strengthening, safest thing you could do in the world was to be close to those you loved and who cared for you, protecting each other with our whole hearts and bare hands.
"Love is how you stay alive, even after you are gone."

"And so castle made of sand

"A dream is a wish your heart makes!"
(Lily James, Cinderella)
Look at the picture below. What if this was the new normal? That would be one of my dreams come true! Even better; what if there was a regulation that made all unethical, non-organic, non-fairtrade firms to write "This product is made by suffering children/slaves in hazardous working environment", "This product is made solely of toxins and human/animal/environmental hazards and is a threat to your health and life", "Not a single piece of this product is recyclable or healthy", "The ingredients in this product are scientific linked to cancer, infertility and asthma", "None of the people involved in this production have been treated well or got enough paid".....and I can go on....Would you still buy this product?
It is kind of up-side-down that the environmental protecting, organic, fairtrade, ethical productions have to mark their products "fairtrade", "organic", "ethical", "recyclable", "environmental-friendly", "non GMO", "no petrochemicals" etc, instead of the ones doing harm have to mark their products with "not fairtrade", "not natural or organic","not ethical", "not recyclable", "loaded with GMO, neuro-toxins, hydrogenated bleached oils and petrochemical bi-products"......Sadly, in most countries there is no law that demands firms to give out information to common people about who and what has been involved in their production. When it comes to the ingredients of a product, it is very often camouflaged in the ingredient list as a chemical scientific cool name, and then you go ahead and buy it without reflections or questions, because you think it is safe since it made it to the marked.
"The story of cosmetics"
I did the same (most of us do); Trusted blindly and did not question any product that was for sale.....Not until 20 years ago, when I was so filled up with medications and exhausted with allergies, eczema, breathing problems, migraine and infections. I also got the messages that I was infertile because of polycystic ovary syndrome and needed treatment and surgery to ever maybe be able to have a baby. I refused to undergo synthetic hormone treatment and surgery. To me and my body that didnt feel right. I felt something else was the root-cause of this, and I wanted to know what and why I had developed these symptoms; I started to read, study and educate myself and made a big life-style change over night. I started reading the labels on my products (cosmetics, make-up, food, washing powders, cleaning products, clothing etc) and was shocked about the findings. I threw them all away. I shifted over to a natural, organic way of living and bought much less products of everything (simplify your life; less is more:-)) and started making my own products or bought fairtrade and organic cosmetics, makeup, washing-and cleaning products. I bought natural clothes instead of clothes made with polyester and acrylic fibers etc. I began making all my food from bottom with pure, organic ingredients and also took away some ingredients and products in my life like perfume, make-up, alcohol, sodas, all foods that contained caffeine, refined sugar, wheat etc that my body really did not want or liked. It turned out I didnt really like them either, it was more like an addiction to the ingredients and products or had become a habit......I also made a personal choice to get off my medications (they had too much side-effects that made me worse), and I started with herbs instead to support my digestion, immune-system and mucus-membranes. It took a year, and all my symptoms that I had been struggling with for over a decade was gone !!! (And they have never come back:-))It was unreal and really, really true at the same time<3 I was even free from the my ovary-syndrome and the cysts had "miraculous" disappeared, as the doctor said. I was not even infertile anymore, and I got pregnant!!!! Only through a natural solution; detoxing and balancing my home and my body back to nature<3
Remember that you "vote" with you money; what you buy and put your money on, you support the growth of.....What is it that YOU want to see grow and thrive? If you buy alcohol and tobacco, the alcohol and tobacco-industry will expand and thrive. If you buy fast-food, the fast-food industry will expand and thrive. If you buy local, organic food, the organic farms and farmers will expand and thrive, if you support the ethical, fairtrade industry, that industry will expand and thrive.....It is your choice, AND YOUR CHOICE MATTERS!!!!
Why is it the human race find it so much easier to work against nature instead of team up and work together with it and co-create? Just think of all the magical, humble powerful, healing things we could accomplished working together with our Mother Earth lifting, inspiring, supporting us with her wind in our backs, surfing her waters? It would truly be a grounded, floating, mind-blowing dream team<3
(PS! I am not sponsored!!!! I just love to buy, support or be surprised by finding people and firms doing an honest work with love and compassion.
PPS! So its not really true that there is "No Tears", because I cry from happiness every time I see initiatives like this:-))

Surround yourself with boughs of Holly,
and spread her beautiful Spirit-Medicine<3
(PS! Do not eat the Holly berries - they are not edible. But you can use the fresh leaves to make floweressence-medicine from, or you can put fresh or dried leaves in a cup of boiled water and drink as a tea. Holly leaves has traditionally been used as folk-medicine against cough, flu, fever, bronchitis, pneumonia, constipation and joint-inflammation/-pain.

Color your world!
“To be colorful and live a colorful life, doesn't mean that you're constantly full of energy, or that you are always dancing in flower meadows and are carefree happy all the time. It means that you stay true to your every color, your every emotion, your heart and soul; that you express who you are in every moment and stay true to everything you are and everything you feel in your essence and use that full spectrum of colors in your greeting and meeting with the world. Life isn't black an white. There will never just be good days where you feel on the top of the world, and there will never just be bad days where you can't handle anything and just feel useless and worthless. There's a whole range of different days, different emotions, different colors, different unexpected things that happen. Every day count, so MAKE every day count. Every day is a page or a chapter in your life. You decide how you will make those pages come to life so your true story will be written in the book of life. To be colorful and live a colorful life is about choosing your authentic self over and over again, finding small pockets of magic in your everyday life and transforming suffering and sadness into experience and wisdom and being able to be and express your own true nature!”

The wisdom and love of true teachers
The picture below is me, ready to take off for my very first day at school. I still remember how scared I was, and how I could feel that my world was going to change. I had talked to my flower-spirit-friends in the garden some days before about this "school-project" of the grown-up-world, and the wild soul in me couldnt breathe by the thought of going into school being "civilized"educated. I was sure I was going to die from lack of fresh air, movement, spirit and wilderness. But a strange thing happened; I loved school and almost every single teacher from all the years of my education. They became family, they cared on a level beyond the level of knowledge. They added life-experience, truth, pure soul and wisdom to their teachings. I felt loved, seen, respected and valuable, and it was a well needed time-out from turmoil and pain at home. They taught us to listen carefully, be present, observe and be disciplined, but also to question, reflect and dare to challenge what they said and taught us;
“What we tell you and teach you today, has already been changed many times, and in the future what we tell you and teach you today, will be changed over and over again. Don't believe everything you hear or read, dare to think for yourselves and ask constructive questions, or you will be led astray along the way and loose your path. Sadly everything taught in school or life is not always for the good of all, even though it may have started out as a good intention. Money came in. Power came in. Sovereignty came in. Competition, fear and control took over. Always do your best, be polite and always be authentic and true to your own heart, that's all that we require from you. And remember that the ones who have written our history usually are the ones who survived or won, the ones with the most influence, money and connections. Always try to remember those who fell, were murdered, died, suffered injustice and poverty, they who were silenced, what story would they tell?
What was their truth? "
And then they showed us this short-movie from 1981 based on a experience of a high-school history class in April, 1967, in Palo Alto, California:
What we don't reflect on, question or heal,
we will repeat……….
Thank you from the inner chambers of my heart to all my beautiful wise childhood/youth teachers, pawing the way with compassion, passion and heart, supporting and cheering me to find my own voice, by being authentic leaders with bravery, courage, truth, honesty, humor, respect, empathy and love. I feel so blessed and dont take any of you for granted! You are forever in my heart<3
“ Silent night, holy night!
All is calm, all is bright.
Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child.
Holy infant so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace”
“There is something truly sacred about the night-time.
I love sneaking out, walking in the dark at night
embraced by stars and moonlight
when everybody has gone to bed.
The stillness, the magic, the tender whisper of nature spirits
are so powerful when pace slows down in humantown.
It's like you can touch the air;
it's so clean cut fresh and visible at night,
and it swirls around you in childlike joy,
embracing and hugging you
like a warm blanket of invisible comforting wool.
I find peace in darkness. It empowers me.
It heals. It loves.
It brings peace to the soul.”

“I have loved the stars too fondly,
to be fearful of the night”
"Someone I loved once
gave me a box full of darkness.
It took me years to understand
that this too, was a gift."
“Instead of fighting the darkness,
you bring in light”
“Only in darkness you can see the stars”
Martin Luther King junior
Shadows of the past
“When people ask me:
“Why do you bother using your life diving into your own
and other people's wounds, soulscapes and shadow-selves?
It is just a waste of time!”
My answer is a question:
Why do humans who have claimed sovereignty
and ranged their intelligence higher
than all plants and animals, all other life really,
use their brains and life on fighting,
terrorizing, starting wars, raping, polluting Mother Earth, murdering, making hard core porn, cheating,
violating and abusing children,
replacing their natural born bodies
with plastic and chemicals
and feeling beautiful in toxicity?
To me all that is both tragic, painful
and a waste of good life.
And if their answer is because they are traumatized,
angry at the world, themselves or their bodies,
have low self esteem, doesn't feel worthy,
are sick, bored or just for fun (which is also sick),
that will be my confirmation to why diving
into our shadow-selves, soulscapes and wounds
are so precious use of time;
To prevent. To heal. To make inner (and outer) peace.
To be whole.
To make the world and ourselves
healthy and beautiful the natural, loving way again.
Unhealed shadows of the past,
shadows our future.
Sacred Earth Tribe, beautiful Soul-family;
- Let us heal!”

" Audrey Hopkinson would have turned 34 on November 25,
the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.
It is also the day the Ontario Association of Interval and Transition Houses publishes its annual femicide list. This year, Hopkinsons name will be on
that list. Hopkinson was a nurse and a mom in Brockville, Ont.
She was expecting her third child when she was killed in her home
on April 1 by her partner, who then killed himself, according to Brockville police. "So sad and such an awful time with all the messaging around;
Stay at home, stay at home."
It happened less than a month into the pandemic lockdown in Ontario.
The week before, the world Health Organization (WHO) warned the pandemic could "exacerbate risks of violence of women"; As distancing measures are put in place and people encourage to stay at home, the risk of intimate partner violence is likely to increase, the WHO stated in a report released on March 26. "She was a beautiful soul. She is our guardian angel. We have lanyards now that we wear (commemorating her)", Melissas Adams (Hopkinsons best friend) said. "She lives on within our hospital and within each of us. She was an amazing nurse, an amazing mom and I was blessed to have her as a friend"
(reported by Julie Ireton, CBC NEWS)
There is so much trauma, hurt and pain out there and people doing so much heavily bad stuff to others initiated by their infected wounds and traumas. But there is also so much healing, love, compassion, empathy, hope and beautiful souls that have healed and help other people heal and feel valued, respected and loved.
As a long time (past) victim of mental, emotional and physical abuse myself, I know the pain and trauma, and they are heavily dark, freezing cold and real as hell. But I also know its possible to feel and heal and find warmth, joy, hope, light, value and purpose post trauma. To see inspiring people like Matt Brown (supported by his wife Sarah and their adorable children), a survivor of family violence and childhood sexual abuse, working towards ending the cycle of domestic and family violence, creating violent free communities, makes my heart smile with hope and joy like the sun and cry like a river at the same time:
"Our world is full of hurt children stuck inside adult bodies.
Its time to heal.
Healing our world begins with healing ourselves.
Our children are watching and learning from us.
Every single thing OUT THERE begins with IN HERE.
WITHIN OURSELVES is where we begin".
(from instagram: @sheisnotyourrehab)
Thank you Matt for creating this platform for healing<3 Its so beautiful seeing men using their life, energy and time on shining light on our collective shadows and wounds to heal their own family patterns and help others heal on behalf of children, women and their own inner child.
The (Knights of the) old code is not lost<3
"A knight is sworn to valor,
His heart knows only virtue,
His blade defends the helpless,
His might upholds the weak,
His word speaks only truth,
His wrath undoes the wicked."
"The true blue hour;
The time for truth and magic to be revealed,
infusing together and creating true magic.
True magic is in the small things in the every day life;
Its in the gratitude of the experience of living,
of being in a physical body, of breathing fresh air,
in bathing in a pure water river,
in a sacred seed ready to sprout,
in kissing the Earth with your bare feet,
in communicating with nature,
in the heartfelt laughter of a child,
in a sunrise or a sunset, in birds singing,
a leaf swirling in the wind,
in a dark sky lit up with stars and the full moon,
of connecting with each other on a heart level,
but most of all to welcome and embrace stillness
and listen to the sacred music of the Earth,
the rhythmical pulse of the Universe
and the deepest, purest song in your soul....."

Whisper words of wisdom
"It is not always those who speak the loudest or most
who have the most honest or wisest to say.
Silence can sometimes express more
than all the words in the world.
Just take a look around you
or inside yourself;
and see all the people who is silenced,
but wear and carry it with dignity.
The sound of silence - speaks loud……..
And for the right words the time is always right……
“Beautiful, Sacred Earth Tribe unite”
Words of wisdom whisper...."

"Can you remember life
before we became A4 robots?
How life was like confetti
magical, colorful and sparkling,
and there were unexplored wonders
Can you remember life
before we became A4 robots?
When you were connected
with your innocent star-essence,
your pure soul,
being fully present
absorbed by the limitless, timeless moment?
When the heart-bursting joy
was a blue balloon?"

The old lakota was wise;
He knew that a man's heart,
away from nature,
He knew that a lack of respect
for growing, living things
soon led to lack of respect for humans too.
So he kept his children close
to nature's softening influence."

"Mother Earth is an artist
that never seems to stop surprising me
with her magic and natural, rare raw beauty.
Her creations are one of a kind.
They are breathtaking.
Just look at this no filter Calendula flower!!!!
The moment we start editing,
photoshop or filtering her masterpieces,
they becomes copies or fake….
and they loose their magic, their natural beauty,
Mother Earth forgot to copyright her creations….
I guess she had too much faith and trust
in the human race
to respect her sacred, natural born art. "

This colorful Brady bunch always put a big smile on my face and in my heart, and contributed to a lovable Halloween just with their childlike presence<3
On this Halloween Fullmoon night, I want to take the time to broadcast my sincere appreciation and deep love for my beloved Hugo, who has stood faithfully by my side since the year 1996. I could never ever have passed my Physical Therapist exams back then without you; you guided me, supported me and silently believed in me all the way; being deadly serious and bone solid. You were my rock! It was love at first sight the day I found you online, and some days later you showed up at my doorstep ready to study anatomy with me. You made me fall in love with, respect and appreciate my bones, how vital they are for my being and function. And we had so much fun during my student-years, but also moving back home after my studies, driving the car with your arms hanging out of the luggage-door, making people scream. So young we were, its been 24 years since then, and you havnt changed a cell.
Sadly we have grown apart during the years, and now it was time to let you go.....and I am so grateful that my brother and his family have welcomed you into their home with open arms; immediately gave you a cool shirt, a hat and you even got my brothers skater shoes, (guess hes going for barefoot skating from now on)....since I left you naked all the time for my own needs. I am so sorry, hope you one day will forgive me.....It was so lovely to visit you during fullmoon today and see that you really seem to thrive among your new friends and family, being free, being dressed (still lack trousers though....), relaxed and chill, without having to work and slave for me anymore. I owe you so much, and I love you so much! Thank you for all the crazy memories we created. You are for ever in my heart, my dear Hugo - the skeleton of my anatomy studies....
So powerful with real and raw people showing vulnerability, pain, sorrow, longing, love and wisdom from their lifes journey and traumas.....
Homesick - A plea for our planet
"Oceans separate lands,
I love flowers. And I love being creative. So being able to be creative with flowers just make my happiness complete. Yesterday the rain was pouring down, perfect Autumn-weather, and I went to harvest some wild plants in the fields in my neighborhood. I found Ladys Mantle, English Plantain, Pea Flower leaves, straws, berries, Maple leaves, Male fern and Female fern, grasses among others.......
Earlier that day I had bought some fairtrade roses and tulips in the local supermarket. They were selling them for 20 NOK (2 dollars) per bouquet, since they were dying and didnt look as good as the other flowers in the store. I bought one bouquet of orange roses, one with orange-red roses and one with orange-red tulips, I took them home, cared for them, and they came back to life. When they were strong enough, I used them to make Halloween-Autumn-flower-decorations together with the wild plants I had harvested. I used some flower-urns that I already had at home. I had saved some hemp and cotton-ribbons from past Christmas-presents, so I re-used them in the arrangements. I also found some organic cinnamon-bark, wooden hearts, and some small, sparkling Christmas decorations at home, that I wired to some branches.
So this is how you make a Autumn-decoration for under 100 NOK (under 10 dollars) if you combine some "dying" flowers in the local store with the free local, wild plants<3 And the magical thing is that you can eat this whole decoration afterwards if your hungry:-) Well maybe not the small glitter balls, though.......but the rest is edible.
So with the flower arrangements finished and put together with some candles and pumpkins, we are ready for full moon, Halloween, Samhain and magical celebration:-)
Does it matter if your black or white?
Have you ever thought of
who decided that a humans life and value
should be defined solely by the color of your skin?
Nothing more. Nothing less. "Just" skin-color....
Every change in the world
always originate from one person's idea.
Who had that idea?
Who took that power to define such a thing?
Who woke up one morning and just decided
that would be a good idea, an important mission?
And even worse;
who would support that savage suggestion and give it life……
If you think all white people are supremely smart,
this just proves that theory really wrong.
Don't we have better things to do
with our precious time on earth?
Instead of using our time
to put people into different color boxes?
What is the meaning and value in that?
Where is the sanity in that?
We are all brothers and sisters on this living planet.
Life is the whole box of beautiful, magical, mysterious
Why would you trade your energy, your life-giving chi,
on judging the skin of your own family?
Can't you see how fucked up that is?
You don't choose your skin your in.
But you have to live in it your whole life.
That's hard enough for people, if the color on their skin
shouldn't lay more burden on it.
If you judge people solely based on their color,
maybe you should take a deep look into
the color of your own soul.
Because it's never about color, its never been about color,
it's always about heart.
You should be defined by your heart and soul;
Who you truly deeply are in this world.
The skin is just a wrapping of the PERSON inside.
And that person matters.
That soul matters.
That beating heart matters!
Let that person and the persons personality radiate.
Let them share their inner world, their hopes and dreams,
their life's journey; their losses and battles, their traumas.
Get to know them!
Then you can judge.
Youll see, they are not so unlike me and you.
They are also human.
Searching for love and respect...
And then you might wake up one morning
claiming some answers from the person
who started the wave of making skin color matter.
Because it's just insane.
That we gave one person that power.
Because one person isn't powerful enough
to do things like that alone, without followers.
It must have been a deeply traumatized, lonely soul
that lost track of the path of love and unity
and wanted to get back on the world, instead of daring to admit pain and letting the wounds heal.
No doubt he was scarred and needed help.....
instead we allowed him and supported him on the quest to
to turn the world upside down
and worship fear, prejudice and separation.
Please don't follow in those footsteps.
It will not heal anything or right any wrongs.
We all have a choice!
Make some colorful footprints instead!
Because YOUR FOOTPRINTS MATTER. A lot!
And in your heart you know all this.
Cause we are all from the same source of eternal light.
Until we forget our source and take another path,
by free will.
Hate prisons us and separates.
Love sets us free and unites.
Let love shine!
Because it doesn't matter if you're black or white.
What matters is that we re-unite!
Pleace consider supporting that matter ;
of becoming one big colorful family,
one magical Earth-Tribe<3

This to me is just pure magic! Early in the morning I felt a calling, an urge to drive into the family cottage, where I havnt been for a while. It was so quiet end empty. Peaceful and beautiful. And I went barefoot in the grass. Still so powerful green, despite autumns embrace, but the ground was freezing, so I had to warm it with love and tender touch from my feet. And even though it is soon to be winter here, the garden was overflowing with flowers. And I got permission from the garden-spirits to collect as much as I wanted; the flowers would otherwise freeze and die. They reached towards me, wanted to be chosen, and I felt a childlike grateful giggle inside. So I collected as much as I could carry to my car, and my heart smiled all the way home with my soul filled up with grace. So today I got to make beautiful flower arrangements<3 Pure, natural joy and happiness! So lifegiving......
And my happiness was complete when I saw the new version of The secret garden was released! I have been waiting patiently, like a child for Christmas presents....
Life in Four Seasons
A beautiful soul with a big heart made a magical short-film<3
All you need is love. And love awakens hope. And hope awakens courage. And courage built from love and hope sets you free....
Free for a short periode of time:
This work of waking up more deeply
and growing up more fully
is a very high form of activism.
Every action you take
is infused with your current inner state.
States of consciousness are highly contagious.
Is your current state worth catching?
"Once you master your inner seas,
no wave can ever throw you off balance."
"The small, natural things in the world,
have always had the greatest value to me
and brought me the purest form of happiness!"
My fury, little babygirl Joy has fallen in love with flowers
just like her mum<3
"There is nothing more spiritual to me
They carry so much natural beauty,
grace, humble power, unconditional love,
sacred medicines and grounded support.
They lift my spirit
and feed me with neverending hope, love, joy, gratitude, strength and courage.
Everything about them are
magical, mysterious and divine<3"
From Mother Nature with grounded love......
Live or Lie
"If you dont mean it,
dont say it.
It is just a waste of everybodys time.
Especially your own.
And its just disrespectful to your true self
and the receiver of your lies.
A life built up on and lived in lies
is not a life;
Its a lie.
A happy heart filled with love
is not able to lie.
Lies come from a broken heart,
and break other peoples hearts.
Its the most infectious thing.
And its killing our spirit slowly.
So be true to your childlike heart.
That will heal your heart
and make you happy.
There is nothing more real and raw
than an authentic lived life.
Thats what we came here for<3

"Everything in life
is in essence about balance,
in both our inner and outer world.
But to find and maintain balance,
we need to ground ourselves to the Earth,
be present and flowing,
allow natural growth and evolution,
and reconnect with the wise, pure, spiritual core
of our sacred hearts. "

Fields of gold
I walked barefoot for hours on the beach today....it is pure magic, healing and meditation in one......When I drove home I had to stop by the farm-fields nearby, because they where lit up in golden barley embraced by sun-rays (A picture will never be able to capture the divine in that breathgiving experience....). I love Autumn; its color, its mysteries, the freshness in the air, the wind, the rain, that fruits and berries have ripened and fall to the ground, the leafs that leave the trees, exposing their nakedness......A sacred time for rest, hibernation, integration, regeneration, transformation.... To me the Autumn always carry the Spirit of artist and painter Eva Cassidy, whos soulfilled, tender voice I love and always have given me soft chills to the inner chambers of my heart....Even though it will be 24 years this November since she left the earthly realm, her love and angelic presence is so so powerful in Autumn. I can feel her whisper when the winds moves through the fields. And even though "Fields of gold" is Stings song, I still feel it belongs to her bare, golden soul.......
"A mind that is stretched by
a new experience
can never go back to
its old dimensions.”
– Oliver Wendell Holmes
"When most people see flowers they see beauty, colors, shapes and smell their natural fragrance. But what most people dont see, is that looking into a flower, reflects who you are. The flower is sending back to you the ability to look into your own soul-essence from their soul-essence. They mirror you. They see you, they greet you, they think you are beautiful and want you to see yourself through their “eyes” and reconnect with your own nature; your wild and free magical spirit. You dont loose your magic because you grow up. You loose your magic when you allow people to dim it! Look deeply into the flowers that show up on your lifes journey, and they will help you remember who you are......"

The person you really need to marry
"Anchor yourself in authenticity
and stand solid and proud in your powercenter."
THE OCEAN YOU
Every time you think you are broken
know this; you are never really breaking.
Nobody can break an ocean.
Darling, all you are doing
is breaking the glass that is holding you back,
diving deeper into your own depths,
discovering yourself in pockets
of the most somber waves,
rebuilding your heart with coral,
with seaweed, with moon colored sand dust.
So stop trying to hold yourself back inside that glass,
it was never meant to hold you.
Instead, break it,
shatter it in to a thousand pieces
and become who you were always meant to be;
an ocean, proud an whole!
"Our souls do not speak human language,
they communicate to us through symbols, metaphors,
visions, poetry, deep feelings
and everyday magic...."
If you dry edible wildflowers or edible flowers from your garden or flower-urns during spring, summer and early autumn, you will have colorful, inspiring, nourishing tea packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxsidants to strengthen you, lift your mood and boost your energy during late autumn and wintertime. Remember to compost the leftovers from the tea if you dont eat them/have them in a smoothie, or give them back to nature to a place in your garden, in the forest or a flowermeadow you are grateful for.
Fairy & Tail
Sometimes its more than okay
to just be the effortless, playful child you are inside
your grown-up, serious, responsible body;
wearing a tail, looking for a fairy of hope in the gravel,
making your life a fairy-tale of your own;
your own little world of peace, magic and healing
without anybodys approval or cheer.
It might bring you the most joy and meaning
you felt in a long time.....
So fragile, so unpredictable, so valuable,
as the wings of a butterfly.
as the depth of the lake.
as a mighty hurricane.
as a birds egg in the nest.
Innocent and pure
as a childs heart.

"A good day"
If you havent watched Marvels Black Panther yet, please do. So much spiritual, shamanic wisdom, love and power in that movie. So much depth and truth. And the devastating choices we face in life.....the inner wounds, demons and battles, but also the search for purpose, respect and justice.
"You are going to struggle,
so you need to surround yourself with people you trust.
You are a good man. With a good heart.
And its hard for good man to be a king....."
(King T Chaka/Black Panther)
"Purpose is an essential element of you.
Its the reason you are on the planet at this particular time in history.
Your whole existence is wrapped up in the things
you are here to fulfill.
Remember - the struggles along the way
are only meant to shape you for your purpose....."
This guy - too good to be forgotten, and too young to leave the earthly realm. But you can never regret a lived, authentic life.......An inspiration, a leader, a fighter, a role model, a black superhero, a king, a panther (the spirit-animal and guardian energy for life and death, ability to know the dark,understanding of death and reclaiming your power ), a beautiful, wise soul, but also a vulnerable human being. Sometimes its okay to not be the hardest worker in the room. Sometimes its more than okay to let your guard down and just be a wounded human. Rest in earthstar-soil and rise with your ancestors to reclaim your soulstar-power. Shine bright into the light of the eternal Spirit-world. Thank you for all the humble, powerful footprints you left and all the medicine you gave unconditionally from your heart to the world the sacred time you were walking this earth, Chadwick<3
"Now - more than ever, the illusion of our visions threaten our very existence. We all know the truth; More connect us than separate us. But in times of crises the wise build bridges while the foolish build barriers. We must find a way to look after one another as if we were one single tribe....."
(The legacy of King T Challa/Black Panther)
My wise brother bear:......leave a paw-of -authentic-power - imprint while you are here, and your sacred roar will connect you to your ancestor in the heavens.......and make new generations coming out of their caves to roar freedom with you as one tribe, one world.
A customer brought me organic spruce-shoot-syrup that he had made from the spruce-tree in his garden. I am usually not a present-girl, but home-made ones I cant resist. Love when people are creative with what they got around them and make something tasteful and beautiful from nature with love:-)
And when I got organic homemade syrup, of course I had to make organic spelt/oat-pancakes<3
And when the kitchen already was warm in use, I made some organic spelt- brownies and coconut ice-cream......Food is art. Food is love. Food is passion. Food is creation. Food is nutrion. Food is joy. Food is a lifegiving gift from our dearest Mother Earth. To be able to harvest and/or use her gifts with gratitude, is a blessing.
KUMARE - the true story of a false prophet:
(I think this documentary is both heartbreaking and beautiful, and so symbolic in so many ways and in so many cultures and societies....)
You may look at this picture and think; "Ahhhhhhwwww, so cute!" But I will tell you a deep hidden secret; pictures can lie! Because this is me, in my childhood, constantly on the run, trying to fill other peoples (fake) shoes.....and.....it was hard as f***ing hell. Sorry, but thats the honest truth. And I promise you, not worth it at all, neither for my heart, my soul or for my over all well-being......
So....this is me, in my grown-up years, healed and wiser, peaceful and relaxed, embracing and loving filling my own natural cute cotton-/hemp-/linen-shoes. Or just throwing them off, walking barefoot on Mother Earth, feeling free.......able to dream again AND enjoy the present time whatever the day brings<3.
Remember - Only you can be the true version of you! Thats your secret sauce........
I will say this over and over again, because I never get tired of this; The plant- and flower-kingdom want our friendship! They want to share their ancient wisdom and sacred medicine with everybody who is willing to open their mind and heart and treat their information with humble respect. They are here to teach us about healing. About being whole. About peace and harmony. And how to reunite with our own soul, hearth and Mother Earth. They are our ancestors. They were here long before we arrived. And they keep us alive with food, medicine and oxygen......Please, show them so love! For all the effort!!!!!! And most importantly; Let them teach you the beautiful secrets of our magical Universe......
If we take care of and care for the plants and flowers, they will take care of and care for us. Sometimes we need their help and sometimes they need our help. It has to go both ways, or else its not a true, authentic friendship or true love.
This beauty, in my little video, was left to be thrown away and die in the grocery-store. They said that there was no hope for her, she was finished, she was starting to rotten away, and there were almost no flowers, and she was drying out into her stem. I asked if I could have her, take her home and make her blossom to life again. She was so small, so exhausted, so little energy left, but I could feel a will to survive and love for life still present in her energy field. So I brought her home. Cared for her. Sang. Talked with her. Sat with her. Gave her flower-remedies, water, fresh air and nutritious soil. And guess what, flowers are not so unlike humans. If they are shown sincere respect, love, patience and support, they will both blossom into their full beautiful, breathtaking potential.........
So next time you are in the grocery-store or at your local florist, look for or ask if they have flowers or plants that they are throwing away. You will be amazed, and saddened, by how many flowers that arnt good enough for the store to sell and for us "perfect" humans to buy......
I am so in love with my hometown........the lands who carried me through all my childhood- and teenager-years, in good times and bad times, gave me food, comfort, support, LOVE, lifeforce, joy, willpower, outdoor freedom, a place to breathe, for all the neighbors believing in me and cheering for me, for all the homemade waffles with strawberry-jam and hot cacao, for all the oranges we put far to many sugarcubes in, for all the soccer-trainings and -matches with sweat, blood and tears and solid values, for all my childhood-friends, so different but yet so alike, and all the tree-huts and cars we built, all the games in the flower fields, all the apples we stole (sorry...!) from the fruit-gardens, the magical playground with birches, ladybugs and butterflies all over the place and all the sour-leaves and rhubarb we ate, all the trolls of stone we created and all the funny snowmen/women (and children) we built, all the deep conversations and the tears, the cute and shy childhood-sweethearts we never dared to approach, for all the crazy sleep-overs with no sleep ("nosleep"-overs) in the playhouses and tents, for the tribe-feeling in our street taking care of each other. There has always been this kind of magical pink energy surrounding my hometown. Making me feel safe even in the middle of a storm. And yesterdays sunset at my hometown-lake reminded me of that, the pink light, hope and protection that is always there; even on cloudy or dark days, the love and comfort that rest in the trees, the sky, the air, the fields, the gardens, the stones, the pavement and houses so many years later, when new people have moved in and some "old" are still left. To move home after so many years away, how the land greeted me and loved me like never before, even though I have been gone for too long. The energy is still here. The invisible love is in the air, and I still feel like the daughter of this magical, sacred place.........
Somewhere along the road of life, we often seem to forget where we came from and what made us in the first place.... a lovely feel-good-film about remembering and going back to our childhearted soul-roots, the real and raw, unedited version of us.
Got myself a new friend in the woods today.
No one is too small, too big, too visible, too invisible
to make my heart smile and my soul sing......
What fills YOUR heart?
What make YOU smile inside out?
Have you ever just stopped to listen
to the serenity of the greenlands?
They are calling for you in their stillness.
Listen with an open heart,
and you will start understanding
their ancient language.
Sun Set, Sun Rise, Sun Set, Repeat.
The circle of life. And light.
Sunsets carry the promise of a new tomorrow,
to everyone hanging out through the night<3
Beautiful and tender.

Life - Drops
feeling young and old.
feeling the rain.
Feeling the howl,
feeling my wild soul.

feeling my heart beat.
Most of all;
more grounded and whole

The pain of loosing and the grace and treasure of having true childhood-friends that changes your life just with their being and for always stays in your heart, even if they leave the physical realm.
Friends that will go to the end of the rainbow with you looking for the treasure, just to discover that the rainbow has no end, its a circle, like the circle of life, and the true treasure is the friendship in the middle of the rainbow, the people who touch our heart and soul while we are on this colorful planet..
Lake of light
Tree of light
Let it flow.....Release.....
Inhale, exhale......Breathe......Let the Universe breathe you.
Be present.....Float along........Be embraced.....
Allow to grow......
When a fire have exterminated everything, when everything seems dead and destroyed, the first greenpeople who arrives at the bournt-down-scene is usually the magical, powerful weeds of fire; the seeds of Fireweed (Geitrams), seeds of hope, so they can bind, build and restore the soil again for growth and new life.......
(PS! Remember these talks are always real and raw and unedited on the go, so, after I have posted it and listen, I can hear myself in the rush saying something wrong like cortisol instead of endorphins when I talk about training. Sorry for that....)
"I am supported. I am not alone in this. I am loved.
And today I start the journey towards accepting and discovering

I'm not going to walk out on myself.
I will fight for who i really am.
I am supported and loved.
I am enough."

Organic Cow Girl
This beautiful girl is a friend of mine, a cool organic cow, Mrs Milktheway, and as you can see, she is demonstrating how grassfed she is…….She just wanted to check in and see if your were happy with her everyday production, all the foods she and her family contribute in, as a stand alone dairy product or as a “filler”. If you use some of her products, please give her a thumbs up, a heart, a smiley or a like, or just some good old fashion love or a big smile the next time you pass by a field with cows. She would like that. To be appreciated for her efforts. Remember she doesn't get paid…..…..

Or you can make an ice tea version over night
by putting all the ingredients in a waterbottle of glass in the refrigerator and drink it the night after before going to bed. And you can add a little organic honey or organic ashorn sirup if it feels strange drinking flowers.......Flowers - the nectars of life......
if you dont eat the flowers and leaves (they are all edible) after you have finished your cup, give them back to Mother Earth with gratitude in your compost, in your garden, in a flowerjar or sprinkle it in the woods, in the ocean or in a meadow next time your there!
SWEET INDULGING DREAMS<3
Follow the green path,
and you will find wild, organic food growing for free....
Let Mother Earth guide you to her nourishing treasures.
My magical, angelic, current view. Sunset from my roof.
This to me is priceless.
You dont have to dig for gold, you just have to look up on the sky.
The eternal sun - natures true, pure gold.
And it keeps you and me and everything alive.
To me that is magic. And a miracle.
I can understand why many cultures worship the sun.
Today I am grateful for feeling the touch and warmth
from the same source as my beloved ancestors.
Walking barefoot on the same earth as they walked before us.
My heart is filled with love and gratitude
for this rare experience.

The life of a sheep
Dont ever take lead,
ignore your own (heart)beat.
Walk flat and steep.
Eat. Sleep. Repeat.

when you arrive at the indoctrinated peak,
become an outsider/freak
and your own path seek.

Raw and real, unedited as always, musings from my heart and soul about the natural body shaming and the fixed-body praise.
Remember; it is the natural parts of you (the true you), that needs to be loved, not the fake ones. Its easy to love yourself on good days, when you feel fresh and "perfect" and "fixed", but it is the wounded, shattered parts of you that have to be taken out of the darkness, into the light to be acknowledged, embraced, cheered and valued to grow solid, grounded selfesteem and a feeling of inner value that last.
Mother Earths boob:
LEVE (To live)
These guys have made a heartbreaking, wise song that really got into my heart. Its in Norwegian, sadly, but the essence of it is "Help me...my heart is beating for the last time....Mother, they are killing me.......All I ever wanted was to.....LIVE! Was that to much to ask for? Your life gets judged after the the color of your skin.......still we are all bleeding the same color on this earth......"
To breathe or not to breathe, THAT is the REAL question.......Never take a single breath for granted! Take a deep inhale before its to late. Take care of our trees before its to late. No treelungs, no human lungs. Take care of each other. First and foremost, do no harm, and treat others the way you want to be treated. Cause we are all connected. People did not invent the web of life, we are only a thread in the pattern of creation…..

Down to Earth!
If you for some reason haven't already seen Darin Olien and Zac Efrons ”Down to earth”-series on Netflix (https://downtoearthzacefron.com/), I encourage you to at least check it out! I loved and got hooked on that this series was so humble, literally down to earth, raw and real, with some refreshing awkward moments and just two nice guys on a new territory, exploring Mother Nature and sustainability with childlike, "wow"ed curiosity. And sadly it also took a heartbreaking turn in the end…….
Through 8 episodes they made me laugh, cry, feel compassion and empathy, awakened my curiosity and gave me new insight, wisdom and knowledge even though I have been”on the green path”, living organically and holistic for 19 years, there is still endless stuff to learn…..
They are not claiming to be professionals in this field, and are not being afraid of showing that this format is new terrain for them. They're just two lovable, kind of wonderful goofy, impulsive mates exploring the natural world with an open heart and mind, wanting to do something meaningful for our planet; To lend their voice to Mother Nature and some of her Earthkeepers, so people can get an insight and awaken to different realities than their own and to natural sustainable solutions. They are not claiming what is right or wrong, but introducing countries, communities and their eco-work and -offer in a fun, interesting way with a childlike curiosity, that won't make you fall asleep of boredom or too many facts. Just enough to awaken interest. Never putting out a strict finger, but just enlighten people on different subjects and giving a teaser on how many areas we really can contribute to change.
And I really love the parts with “bloopers”, that they dont cut them away, but are so brave to include the awkward moments, not being "politically correct" or perfect edited, but just raw and real and stunned. All the “wow”s, “really”s, “that's so good”s and “no way”s, made me smile and feel recognition, because I feel those are really valid reactions on being surprised, lost for words, amazed or blown away. No written, polished, boring script. This is new for them, and when things are new, breathtaking or impressing, they get lost for words, and leave the integration and digestion of the sight, feeling and experience hanging in the air, and then it's up to the people watching to do what we will with the information. It doesn't matter that the interviews aren't “deep” and “professional”, they're human, intuitively from the heart, and they reached and touched me on a soul level; all these beautiful soul meetings with people we never knew about, getting a voice through this series, showing their passion, effort and love for what they're doing and to the Earth. And how they all seem so like family together, and again, down to earth.
It really made me want to pull myself out of the couch and start doing something nice for our (still) green Mother, and hopefully you will get inspired too;.. Even if it's only growing vegetables in your own backyard, planting a green wall, recycle, cleaning up the trash outside your doorstep, supporting local farmers, go barefoot, inspiring children to play more and explore more in nature, harvesting wild plants instead of buying some fast food crap, giving a hug or listening to a friend in pain, writing a post on organic fairtrade food or to help a neighbor who is sick with shopping or vacuuming. It doesn't matter what it is, big or small, just that it comes from an pure place in our hearts and souls, and people will feel the change, Mother Earth will feel the change and shift in human energy, the love and that hope is rising. And since everything really just is energy, we will come a long way if we have people on the heart frequency, giving a voice to love-energy and down to earth grounded actions-energy. All you need is sincere love, and all good things grows from that eternal seed. Without light and love our world wouldn't exist, so since were still here (chillin…), it means that there are still both love and light present in bigger amounts than we would think. Evil might win some battles, but love wins in the end……….
I think when life gets hard, meaningless or traumatic, its easy to start longing for or get stuck in the imagination of "over the rainbow"-happiness. But seriously, have you taken a real deep, close look on all the beauty, abundance, food, creatures, flowers, trees, and magical life UNDER the rainbow; its ON the Earth all the colors are for REAL, and life is for real, waiting for you to taste, smell, hear, touch and explore. Loose yourself in the natural beauty of Mother Earths green arms so she can guide you home again<3
If you want your children to be inspired to help Mother Earth, that may be too young to watch or understand "Down to Earth", Zac Efron many years ago also lended his voice to another Earthkeeper, a young boy Ted, in the animation-movie LORAX - a wise "take care of our Earth before its to late"-movie for children (AND grown-ups!).
LORAX - 10 min preview:
LORAX - "How bad can I be?"
Many of the characters in the film live in Thneedville......"Noun. thneed (plural thneeds) A useless product which is advertised as being needed by everybody, but which in fact no one needs"........But The (REAL) Need we all have is a healthy, fertile, peaceful earth to walk on.......
Change is a personal choice.......
LORAX - "Let it grow":
I remember my son loved that movie when he was younger. He had seen it with some friends in childrens school and asked me if we could buy it because; "mommy, you will love it!". I looked on the cover, and it just felt silly. YEP! I judged it by its cover. I really didnt feel it by looking at it, at all. And I found that so weird and sad, cause back then my son and I always fell for the same heartwarming films, often with a deep message to them. But this one, no, I wasnt convinced. A small, orange fury creature with a far too big mustache......being the protector of the trees...unreal looking sugarcandy trees without leaves......that just seemed like a very weird, stupid script. And I didnt know anything about Dr Seuss and "his world", so I thought it would just be a waste of time. But my sons big beautiful, begging eyes, made me buy the movie anyway. We watched it that night, and I ended up singing and crying.........There you go! DONT JUDGE WHEN YOU HAVE NO CLUE!!!!!! So it turned out my wise, little son knew me better than myself. I loved the script and the characters. SO MUCH WISDOM! And the trees, well we kind of found them in real life too. Or I guess, at least, Dr Seuss inspiration to the trees.....So I smiled while walking in nature the other day, in a rainy field, there they were again, maybe not trees, and maybe not so colorful, but the shape end energy you cant question.....and they reminded me about the day when I almost let something valuable go, because of its cover.......
"UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
nothing is going to get better. Its not."
Dr Seuss, Lorax

The two pictures below I shoot almost at the same spot, but the first one is shot on a cloudy day and the other one is shot the day after, a really sunny day........And of course nothing is edited or with filter. Its like its two different places. Its like our emotions. The one day everything is cloudy and hopeless, and the next day its childlike joy and sunny colorful hope, and we cant really understand that both of these feelings are a part of our inner landscape and can show up with just hours between them. The only constant in life is change......Be present and enjoy the ride!
"What a difference a day make......
and what a difference the sun make!
Follow your bliss,
and your inner sun
will light up the path for you,
even on the darkest, most cloudy days!"

Tasty, colorful, nutritious gifts from Mother Earth.......
Went on an impulsive roadtrip today in the wonderful sunshine, and ended a perfect day with a sad and cute film "The choice" from 2016 with two neighbors falling in love and the hardship and choices they had to face, and of course, as always, I cried like a baby<3
TREE FOR ONE, AND ONE FOR ALL........
(the treemusketeers ;-))
As you may know by know, I looooove trees! When I was in childrens school our teacher took us out in the forests nearby to plant babytrees to protect, maintain and expand the local treelandscapes. It was so powerful, meaningful, beautiful and gave a natural feeling of solid teamwork. Just this magical feeling of each of us kids digging in the soil, everybody with their personal babytree, blessing the newborn tree with our love and best wishes for its growing-journey towards the sky and the light, knowing that we had been part of this greenworld expanding in our area......priceless......
Luckily you dont have to be a child to contribute to growing forests, support reforestation or protect the trees. A lot of people in all ages and different cultures and organizations do this important work, which is even more crucial and sacred in these days of rapidly climate changes .
Check out these lovely, inspiring sisters with hardworking heart and soulwoman Clare Dubois:
or if you just want to educate yourself in why trees are magical, important, worth protecting and taking care of, you could read
and be surprised how trees are not so different from humans!
*Wish everybody could have a tree-friend like this!
So magical and powerful <3
Get out in nature and look for the one calling your name!
Or plant one<3
Sometimes life gives you rain.
Sometimes life gives you pain.
Sometimes life opens up a new terrain;
showing you that behind the clouds
is neverending sunshine!

I shapeshifted some organic ingredients into a butterflycake and decorated it with beautiful plantspiritmedicines from roses, lavender, lilac, ladys mantle and spruce from my neighbourhood (everything edible of course<3), and some organic banana and blueberry and acai from a little further away:-)
Uuups! Somewhere in the middle, I say that "when you start to reflect,
you start to neglect"....lol.....sorry.....real and raw and passionate talks on the go, sometimes make me say wrong things in the moment..... this is the right sentence...:
"When you stop reflecting, you start neglecting...."

Listen to this when you come to the section in Shapeshifting Part 2, BEFORE I start giving you the questions. These are the first questions, that for some reason fell out......so listen to shapeshifting part 2 first, until you come to the part when the questions comes, then stop, listen to this little part and then go back to shapeshifting part 2 for the rest of the questions. Sorry for this!
There is a lot of shape-shifting to be found in cartoons and in Disney-movies, her are a few examples:
There is a lot of shapeshifting in Frozen 2<3
and in Brother Bear 1 :
and Brother Bear 2:
Butterfly caterpillars exploring the world.......
Me, the Tomboy-girl, trying out being a swan-princess for a day......
but ended up back in jeans, fresh dirt under my nails, into the woods climbing trees:-)
" Across the Sea of Subconscious,
She will swim against the tides.
Though her heart startles and stirs,
My spirit will be there to guide.
(Daughter of Shadows, by Jo Swan)
The Guardian Tree
All is found - The hound + the fox
"Your heart plays a song
like a broken music box,
but nothing ever sounded
quite so beautiful to me.
Together, in the dance
of wounded-wing swans
we ll rise above the ruins,
melting into the golden light.
(John Mark Green)
A message from two of my closest guardian angels and one of my beloved spiritanimals to everyone in pain, sorrow, exhaustion, confusion, trauma, shock and emptiness:
“You will always get the strength you need. Always. And when you don't get strength, it's because you don't need strength; Instead it's time to be fragile. And only through that epiphany and feeling of how fragile you are and can be, you will get to know true healing, deep insight and wisdom, and the amazing power it gives you to rise again, stronger than ever, when heart and soul are ready. Only through allowing yourself to recognize, acknowledge, respect, accept and lovingly embrace the fragile parts of yourself, you can heal to wholeness and become a powerhouse; a fountain of everlasting joy, light, love, grace, peace and healing force to yourself and others.
We believe in you to be brave enough to go in there, relax and release there, and trust the process of restoration and transformation.
It may seem dark and heavy, unbearable at times, but there is this magical, authentical, lifegiving light in the other side of the tunnel, that it is worth crawling through the mud for. No mud, no lotus…….You are never as fragile as when you are strong and high on yourself, and you are never as strong as when you are brave enough to be fragile and true to yourself, to your own nature……....when nature sees that you allow yourself to be vulnerable and fragile, like every single being on this planet is, if we are honest, they come to your rescue to surround you and carry you, until you
can spread your wings again.
Listen with your heart, and you will feel their presence and their unconditional love for you. Just ask them to watch over you, help you, guide you, and they'll be there in a heartbeat, even if all you can see and feel is emptiness, and all you can hear is silence. Even if your eyes, ears and mind is blind and deaf to the beautiful healing rays of light and angelic sound surrounding you, your heart and soul is not. Trust them. In silence wisdom can be exchanged and grow. And emptiness is really just a canvas of freedom for you to paint whatever color and patterns your heart desire. Be brave. Be fragile. Be empty, so the universal love and soul can fill you with love and light. We love you, and we carry your heart until you are able to feel that magical, sacred, childlike, innocent love again.”

The School of Love
"If I told you,
that the cage you feel trapped in,
has an open door,
would you accept that freedom,
and walk out?
If I told you
that there is a way out of hell,
would you raise from
the darkness that surrounds you
and walk that path
with bravery and wonder?
We are a whole world
overeducated in and beaten up by
a Master in Fear.
When it comes to pure Love,
we are almost clueless.
the School of Love
with its students is growing,
with a strong foundation rooted in the truth,
supported by our Mother Earth,
her creations and elementals,
our ancestors, the heavens
and the spirit world…..
To take love seriously,
It's not weak.
It's not just for children, fairytales and movies.
It's the most powerful teacher
you'll ever meet and team up with
that can heal our lives
and our fear based world.
Everyone is invited
to join the School of Love!
You don't need good grades.
There is no application, no requirements;
It's just a wish your childlike heart makes
“We are the world”;
so dare to create the world
you see in your dreams
into your daily life, from day to day.
“We are the children”;
so dare set free and be
that magical child you carry in your heart
to breathe, dance, live and love..
And then we “WILL make a better day”
and a better world
“just you and me”!

Heart & Soul Matters!
“If the human race is so smart, so much more intelligent than other species (someone claim), making peace on earth should be really easy, a "peace" of cake. But we cant even make peace within our own species, our own family? How come so many “primitive” and wild species find this so easy, natural and effortless to communicate, delegate, cooperate and live in harmony and symbiosis? Are they just so stupid that they haven't yet discovered all the benefits of war, hate, bullying, prejudice, sexism and racism? Wait…………. what are the benefits again?
Regain your empathy brain, boost your roots, restart your heart! I promise you, even trees have more evolved brains than humans. And YES they got big hearts, too! When it comes to emphatic hearts, volume, content and size matters. If we are going to change anything,
every heart & soul matters!"

“Dear Mother Earth Gaia, Pachamama.
I ask of you to carry me and all who struggles and suffers through these times of changes, to support us and protect us, give us strength, courage and new hope..
I am so grateful for your love and for all the shelter, beauty, foods, oxygen and medicines you produce and offer us. You do so much for me, every day, and I feel so blessed.
Help us to see how we can work together as a team.
What we can do for you, so you know we won't take you for granted anymore. I want there to balance and harmony in our relationship, with each other and to you.
Help us to see the truth in every situation so we can take action from a truly authentic place in ourselves, but also to rest and take care of our bodies, our hearts and souls when that is needed, so we can integrate, regenerate and gain new lifeforce to meet a new day and a new, brighter future.... I want us to take care of each other in an beautiful, humble way, so we, once again, can bring peace to this world in co creation with you.
From my childlike heart to yours:
The light in me honor the light in you, and I love you always<3 Lene”

We are (still) the world
(the photo below is as always shot by me, but the painting with a well known, wise and beautiful quote is made and given by two beautiful costumers on the organic farm I was working on<3)
This film may just be another action-movie with a well known and beloved fairytale-character. But I always love how writers, musicians, artists, poets, producers, film makers, actors and actresses etc use their craft and art to paint a picture of or to reflect the current world we are living in. So even if it's just a movie, the suffering is real, the injustice is real, the terror is real, the greed is real, the tricks and tactics to win wars, gain power, “respect”, money and “honor” on behalf on someone else's integrity and life, is real up to this day in our own lives.
And even if the Hercules-version presented in this film may or may not have been walking the Earth in real life, we all carry his characteristics and facets in our hearts, the hero, the seeker, the eternal soul (son/daughter of a God), but also the human-part with all its challenges, fear, pains and losses and temptation, the wounded one, the thirst for justice and truth, the quest, the fight, the fall and the rise, the phoenix out of the aches, striving making things right again, being tested, deceived, tortured, the gremlins and demons in his head forcing him to give up, go mad, resign or be brave enough to face his own shadows, meet the truth and heal. And the pain of being tricked and deceived by people he trusted and gave his everything to, take away his honor and glory and integrity, and then step by step gaining new strength, hope and humble power and raise again for love, regaining his trust in people and finding his true friends and allies in the most unexpected times in all the strangest, horrible pitfalls, having his back, seeing and knowing his true self and his heartfelt mission and teaming up in a powerful way for justice.
Loyal, Brave & True
"Humans were never given the negative power
of taking an other humans life. We took that power, claimed it and cultivated it, presented it as a skill, teaching and educating others to do the same. To protect ourselves and survive.The problem is, we don't use this power to protect ourselves and survive. We use it for manipulation, statement, politics, power and control. Even as competition, amusement and entertainment. We suddenly feel that our own hunger and need for control and power is more valuable than the life and freedom of another being.
The world and the air is for everybody. Our sacred Mother Earth Gaia is not defining who she is giving her foods, shelters and waters to. The sun and the moon don't define who to shine on, give warmth to or light up the path for in the dark. The clouds don't choose who to give shadow or rain to. The trees are not selecting who they give the breath of life to, their precious oxygen. They give it to everybody, no matter color, race, gender, age, religion, beliefs, species……
When you dont allow another person to breathe, I will say you are in deep troubled need of greed. And it is a slowly, creepy disease, that will eat you up inside and take away your breath slowly.The only thing that can heal this disease, is deep heartfelt and soulfelt regret, humbleness and willingness to change your ways, and see that you are not more valuable than the person next to you or under you. We are all brothers and sister. And when you kill another person, you may have killed their physical body; But their eternal soul and light-spirit is still here backed up by the spirit-world, stronger, wiser, with a clearer message, words and voice than ever before. So you really don't get rid of them anyway. And you don't really prove anything else with your action, than that you have chosen to become a murderer.
So why be a murderer, when you can be a lifegiver? Why walk through life with hate, when you can choose love? Why be closed hearted and closed minded, when you can open your mind and open your heart? Why live your life as a cold hearted, dead person, when you can live a colorful life that inspires others to do the same? You are sent her by the same lifeforce as all other beings, our ancient origin source is exactly the same.
So let us stand up for each other, care for each other, support each other, comfort each other and live together in peace and harmony, like a proud family with deep love, solid roots and respect for each other, our beloved planet and the magical, mysterious universe we all are a part of. That is the deepest healing, fulfillment and achievement I could ever think of or dream of in my life!"

"To radiate, show or express love
while you are here on Mother Earth as a human,
is never wasted.
Even if someone doesnt accept, opens up to
or is returning the love you are giving.
Because your love is still the most potent medicine you can give,
despite of rejection.
Keep on loving, shining your true-colored love,
and never let anybody take your childlike love away from you.
If you keep on radiating love,
there will always be someone whos heart you touch,
even long after they met you,
they will remember the silent, soft breath of your love,
their hearts will slowly open, when they feel safe and ready,
so their own bud of love
will blossom into the most beautiful, powerful flower
and continuing the healing ripple-effect into the world.
Love is contagious AND lifegiving.
Keep on infecting people with love for life<3"
