Dear June…

… it’s been a year since we last met. I can’t believe you’re almost here. My soul talks about nothing but you. ”I speak so much better when I’m silent. 4 AM sunrise. The world is quiet. My mind intense.   June dear, nature must be head over heels for you, the way she blossoms when you arrive. I look at you, and wonder out of all the months in the world, I’m happy to have found one that is so perfect for me.  June is for hot, loving summer nights. Magical, never-ending evenings. The sun wide awake, like an impatient child the day before Christmas Eve. But please, don’t go back to sleep, you’re one to keep. June is for finding the happy within. Smelling roses and counting stars. Eating strawberries and breathing in vitamin sea. June is for dancing with the waves, playing with nature and kissing the soft, morning rain. You’re impeccable, just the way you are.  This June is all about not forcing things. What flows, flows. What crashes, crashes. There’s only space …

Power of Thoughts

”Dear sunrise, you bring me peace of mind.” Thoughts are a huge part of who we are. The human mind is a beautiful, yet complicated and sophisticated machine, and it’s estimated that an average person has between 40.000 to 60.000 thoughts per day (National Science Foundation). What is more, 80 % of these thoughts are negative, and 95 % are repetitive.  Nevertheless, one important aspect to bear in mind is; you’re not your thoughts, you’re simply having thoughts. Most of the thoughts that are running through the mind we aren’t even totally conscious of. These so called subliminal messages go un-noticed since they aren’t perceived by the conscious mind. However, whether we notice these thoughts or not they will affect us to some extent. Pay attention to your thoughts According to the facts above it might seem that all we do is complain, whine or have thoughts that diminish our own or other people’s self worth, and mostly without even being aware of it! According to Eckhart Tolle one of the ego’s favourite strategies to strengthen …

Friday Feeling – Patience

”No one is an overnight success story. Put in the work.”   Sometimes what we want doesn’t happen when or how we want it to. But that doesn’t mean the answer is ”no” it just mean ”not right now”, or ”I have a better plan for you, sincerely the Universe”. I believe the main difference between successful and unsuccessful people is not the way they vary in their competencies, but the way they vary in their ambition, and desires to reach their potential. Persistence is key, since good things usually take time. Below you’ll find a few important mindsets to carry with you during times when giving up is the only thing on your to-do-list; Practise gratitude. It’s extremely easy to get caught up in other peoples’ success stories. However, spending time dwelling on the things you haven’t achieved yet, or comparing yourself with others won’t take you anywhere. Focus on you. Be thankful of the things you have accomplished so far. Write down all of your achievements – big and small, and start being …

That gut feeling

”Trust your intuition. It knows what your head has yet to figure out.”   Come home to yourself, darling. Stop running away from your inner being, instead run toward yourself. Trust that you hold all the answers within. When you feel at home with yourself you begin to feel safe in the world, and it will become much easier to listen and pay attention to your intuition.  How can we become better at listening to our inner voice, that gut feeling? Here are the most important ways I’ve learned to uncover and trust my intuition. 1. Stay present. ”Breathe in the moment.”  To be mindful in the present moment is one of the most powerful ways to detach from the ego. It’s easy to get caught up in all the shoulds, and thereby forgetting all the wants and needs that lie deep within. At the moment I’m sipping on a cup of coffee while writing, and enjoying the sound of heavy rain and thunderstorm. Happiness lies in the smallest of things. Each and every day …

Find comfort in the chaos

”With a brave heart anything is possible.”   Dear summer heat, you finally arrived. Too good to be true, but oh so adored. It feels like I’m in the southern part of Europe, but I’m in Turku, Finland. It’s almost 30 degrees here, and today has been absolutely lovely. I’ve been enjoying the gorgeous weather, and been trying to study for an entrance exam which I have tomorrow. Maybe not the smartest thing to do to study the day before an important exam. I should do nothing but relax, since my ”extra-mother” let me borrow her huge apartment, and I’m rather exhausted after a lot of work (and life). Tonight is an ice-cream, yoga kind of evening. But first – coffee & a run. I haven’t been writing in a while, I guess I needed a short break, as well as 100 % focus on the entrance exam. I’m so looking forward to tomorrow when it’s over, the past weeks have been hectic; trying to study while working full-time. The other day I went through some …

Dear May…

… you took me by storm. I’m forever lost in your impulsive grace. ”Fight for the fairy tale. It does exist.”   May is for waking up too early. The morning sun dazzling through the broken window. Burning with passion, awakening tired souls. The birds are singing, the red roses blooming. It’s a new day. A bright future. May is for magical, heart-warming evenings. The nature, and humans, reborn.  May is a month when everything is thriving; the cherry trees, the flowers, the hearts. Let her sensuality caress you. Embrace you. You know, she’s blossoming just for you. This May is all about letting the alluring spirit shine through. Exploring the unknown, and taking chances. Believing in the magic of life. The beauty of humanity. Early morning runs and yoga. Awaken the body. Awaken your creativity. It’s about taking the time to learn about oneself. Every day becoming more and more self-aware. It’s about poetry and expressing emotions. Reading and gaining knowledge. The nature, so breathtaking and flourishing, just like you. It’s about leaving things …
