Moon Wild

Theres is a force inside of all women that is unleashed  whenever the moon is full. I´d like to remind myself of that by wearing this neclace every full moon, as I feel it symbolises just that.  -The raw, unfiltered  and wild woman…. IT IS FROM HER we harness our power, wisdom and divine femininity.  When the moon is full and our control systems are softened, she will emerge and force us to connect with her through vivid dreams, heightened senses and intuition. If we as women are aware of this and choose to embrace it and surrender, full moons can be a time of true magic. History speaks of many cultures around the world, where women would gather on a full moon, to hold a space for slowing down,  deepen, nurture, honouring their moon cycles and to escape the business “outside”. This was considered sacred. These circles and gatherings are still happening and I’ve been fortunate to host and guest quite a few. But the majority of women today are not honouring this side of themselves. Probably because it isn’t “productive” in society’s standards. -Especially when you feel like an emotional rollercoaster or you can’t sleep during full moon . But what if we are supposed to tap into  those intense emotions? And what if we aren’t supposed to sleep, but instead stay awake, be open and receptive for new ideas, visions. Clearing old patterns and healing ourselves? Just being. It’s called moon cycle for a reason. If we are aligned and not on any birth control, our cycle is connected to the moon phases. And our entire...

Respect your mother earth

I always give thanks to the earth when I harvest.  Even when it’s just a little twig of herb. And when planting seeds, I ask that they may grow big and strong. My grandmother taught me to be humble to nature, and to respect it deeply. “You’ll be nothing without it child,  if you take care of them they’ll take care of you” – she said.  And so, I talk to my garden, both the one indoors and the one outdoors. I ask the plants and trees how they are doing. This way I can sense what they need, and make sure it’s taken care of. Plants are like people, they respond to the vibrations of our voice, and will thrive if we love and listen to...

The real yoga

We need to talk about Yoga. You see, yoga is often associated with bliss, zen and wellness. But nobody ever talks about the dark side of it. As yoga teachers we are expected to be calm,  and  the embodiment of wellness. Because practicing yoga will make us happy and completely blissed out, right? – it is not so simple.. Yoga is meant to bring us closer to ourselves to our essence, to “the source in us”. But in order to find balance and authenticity we need to clear out some shit, meaning we need to face the dark side. -this is also called shadow work. So if you find yourself in the midst of what is supposed to be an amazing yoga flow and all you feel is annoyed, sadness or even flaming rage building up inside. Don’t despair – it’s is NOT wrong. It only means that yoga is doing exactly what it is supposed to do. “So what if I feel nothing at all”? You might think – well, that’s OK too. Maybe you just need to sit and feel that for a while. Whatever you need to clear out, and balance out – that is what you will get. My own daily practices are so different from day to day. I sometimes have to fight an inner battle even to get started. Because you meet yourself on the mat, the good the bad and the ugly side, and that can be challenging, and sometimes painful. In yoga you work with both mind, soul and body, and so it is bound to get gritty. It will force...
