TRUST⁣⁣

And a shift in body communication through challenging times.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Its funny how life operates. Yesterday morning I attended a beautiful creative circle by sweet @Aline where we were to choose an intention for the day, draw it and then let others finish the painting for us, putting there heart and creation to support our intention through their hand and colors…⁣⁣
⁣⁣
my intention was TRUST, and I went home with a beautiful painting of a flower ⁣⁣
and lots of warmth in my heart from the other people joining circle⁣

Then..⁣⁣
⁣⁣
This night I got sick, really sick, Bali Belly its called, so I’m still in bed, breathing, and trying to take care of myself as well as possible.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
But in the middle of my night-struggles I discovered how I talked to myself differently…⁣
⁣⁣
I heard myself communicating with my body..⁣⁣
⁣⁣
”my love, I trust you, I trust you in doing this FOR me, you are amazing, how can I support you..?” ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
my internal language shifting from the old one of scarcity while getting sick to one of TRUST as my body shivered and shaked⁣⁣
⁣⁣
and when I before would have distracted myself from the feelings and thoughts through movies or music, this time I could breath, stroke my arms and fall back in to sleep..⁣⁣
⁣⁣
trusting that what ever needs to move through my system will be taken care of, cause the body is wise and she knows what she’s doing!!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
For me this is a sign of a new healthier relationship with body through choosing to connect, explore and love what I discover. In the same time a sign we all can benefit from doing so✨⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Waking up this morning to see the trust-painting from yesterdays circle put a smile on my tired face.✨⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I’m curious about how you relate to your body in times of illness? ⁣⁣
Feel free to drop me a private message or respond here if you feel like sharing.⁣⁣
⁣⁣

⁣⁣
Lots of body love from Me❤️⁣

MY BODY

This poem comes from listening to my body and honoring her needs. Something I was born capable of doing but some how forgot through years when the voice of society seemed louder than me…⁣ ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
I’m sharing it for you to tune in to yours and remember it’s never to late to listen..⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣💛⁣ ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
Feeling her shape⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
breathing with me ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
soft, gentle, ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
in need to be free⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
like nature she live⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
freely she give⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
never to ask⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
what is my task⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
~⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
I lay down to feel⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
from head down to heal⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
her urges are wild⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
in clima so mild⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
her hips from the moon ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
with stars in the womb⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
whispers so clear⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
when tuned in to hear⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
no need to be seen⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
in earth body green⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
its where we belong⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
this is my song⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
~Caroline Lundgren⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
For me, starting to listen was a bit overwhelming, I met a lot of fear, shame and sorrow for myself and the world, but also a new kind of beauty, appreciation and deep gratitude for all here is. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
With time and yoga I found my way to listen from a more drama-free place, beyond idéas of good and bad, right and wrong, or needs to be or feel or do things in a special way in order to be good/enough or loved by self or others. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
Its been a journey ever since, Im still on it, learning, but also sharing it with others. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
Grateful for how my experiences guides me to a new way of living, with more love for life, self and others⁣
& truly thankful for sharing it with you.⁣

WHAT YOGA IS FOR ME⁣ & WHAT I HAVE TO OFFER YOU

Yoga is for me a loving space to drop in to self and life in any given moment. That brings me back to a state of being and helps me navigate life intuitively through my senses.⁣

It opens my heart to inspire others meeting themselves through yoga movements, breaths and awareness. Leaving with a new sense of sensitivity, clarity and appreciation for what is.⁣
⁣⁣
I have been teaching yoga for 7 years and keep on feeling humble of all the gift it brings me and my clients.⁣

This month I have a special offer for private online sessions with a 30% discount.⁣

Each session is 90 minutes and contains sharing, grounding movements to sooth your nervous system and exploration of the moment.⁣

Check out my offer and tune in with me through a private for more details or questions.⁣ 💛⁣
Hope to see you soon!⁣

THE LOVING STORIES ⁣ OF OUR CREATIVE MINDS⁣

You are not the stories of your mind. Neither the worries surfing on the wave of the them.⁣

All desperatly craving for your attention, adding extra drama to keep you in…⁣

Luckily, you are the watcher of the movie-screen of your creative mind. With an opportunity to detach from the drama and not get lost in there.⁣

With a deep breath we can give space in between the juicy story that is playing out and the real moment we are in. The here and now.⁣

As we consciously start to notice, and see them for what they are (just movies of a restless mind) we create a safe space in between the narrow and whats real.⁣

In fact we can choose to get entertained as we let go of the belief it´s any truth in there. Cause its fiction, fantasies. Like every award winning movie is made up by a creative mind, so is yours. ⁣

If you get really caught up. Breath in to expand your contact with now and breath out to rest in your present moment. Do it for as long as you need. ⁣

Remember, not to confuse the loving stories with your life.⁣

Stories are to entertain⁣
while life is to be lived.❤️

THE BITTER SWEET ⁣ DANCE OF SURRENDER

We can not control life. We can only show up with good intentions for what we believe in. ⁣
Life teaches me big time to let go of control and surrender to a bigger trust in life itself.⁣

We can only plant good seeds for what we believe in, show up for them and surrender any outcome.

Mind sometimes unconsciously believes we can plan and organize the outcome, but we can not. That game is a loos in energy with no gain. ⁣That part of the process is not up to us.

As we cant control the planets spinning around the sun, the cycles of the moon or the sun rising and setting, so cant we control the outcome of or efforts. ⁣

The goal of my trip here were to show up for something I believed was good for me. And as I got here I got to know that thing was not possible. Just like that. My whole system said, whaaaat, noooo, is this really happening?!!!!? since it was a big deal for me to choose to do it and challenged me a lot. ⁣

But all I could do was to surrender to the no and trust that life has a better plan for me, one I could not yet see.⁣

And as I wrote this I got the chance back. After 24 hours confusion and trust. ⁣

So what do we know about what is in here for us. But showing up and learning to trust is a dance we have. And life always gets better danced. ❤️

DONT DO YOURSELF FOR LOVE BUT ALLOW ALL PARTS OF YOU TO BE LOVED

We dont need to live up to the expectations of the ego or the world in order to be loved.

We dont need to run a show.

We are perfect in our pure humanness or call it human mess.
I love you just the way you are.

Dont abandon your BEing in order to be loved by me.

Don´t DO yourself to impress me,
that only creates distance between my heart and yours.

Remember. I love you. Just the way you are.
If you ever doubted. ❤️

Movement in to Moment

⁣I feel like sharing a tool I use⁣⁣
when ever I find my mind getting⁣⁣
busier than my heart wants to beat.⁣⁣

You can do it in 2 different ways:
⁣⁣
1. Close your eyes and get so still ⁣⁣
that you start noticing everything around or within⁣⁣
that is not still in this moment.⁣⁣ Be with it. Breath.
Connect with the stillness in center of the movements.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
OR⁣⁣
⁣⁣
2. Move your body so slow⁣⁣
that your mind can’t be anywhere else⁣⁣
than in your movements.
⁣⁣
Much Love⁣⁣

Dear Mama Earth

Yesterday afternoon I experienced you shaking me for the first time
and as you did
your earth quaked me open for you.

I was in meditation with a conscious group of likeminded dear ones caring for the earth from @newearthcooking as I felt my body shaking. First I thought is was a body reaction of mine, but as it continued and I looked up to meet the eyes of other faces around I understood that the shaking came from underneath and that we were all in it together.

It brought me closer to the fact that we live here
together and forever inseparable with you
your lungs is our lungs
your storms are our storms

through every breath
we connect in an eternal cycle of giving and receiving ~
I believe
we don’t live on you
but in you & that we don’t walk on you
but with you.

You not only offer us your lungs
but our sanctuary and home
giving your ground
as we rise and fall
through life.

So let us learn to care for you like we do for ourselves and our loved ones,
with the love, compassion and respect you deserve.

And let us all choose to hear your song before the melody gets lost. 💛

Much Love

ÖDMJUK/HUMBLE


Ödmjuk in swedish means to be soft to destiny. The word split up in two is öde=destiny and mjuk=soft.

Someone mentioned it a year ago and the word stayed with me ever since and made me think about how important it is to be so, humble to our destinies.

Humble to the place we are in and all that we are in this given moment. No matter where we are, we all do our best to navigate life in every moment and have always done.

Looking back on challenge or situations we have experienced in the past, we might with todays knowledge have acted or met the situation differently, but at that point, we did not know better, and we did all we could with what we knew to survive. So be gentle with yourself and others.

Lets embrace yesterdays challenges and be thankful for all that we learn through them and life that will now support us as we keep on walking our human, humble path with love towards self and others.

Being ödmjuk is not an act of giving up, in fact its the opposite, its to give in and enter your now with compassion towards self and others, seeing how we all try to do our very best to navigate this thing called life.
Love you all. 💛
