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. 💛

Choosing short time discomfort in service of long time satisfaction.

Reflecting on the process of change, this I discovered… When we choose where to go in life, what we wants to do, who and what we wants to surround ourselves with, and how we want to show up for what we believe in, I found an interesting piece within my own choices.

I found that when my choices are not embodied, but made by a stressed mind, the walk seems easier but lead to numbness and a distance to my senses and dreams.

And when my choices are embodied and aligned with the longing of the heart & the dreams that keep on chowing up, it walks me through short time discomfort (sometimes deluxe) but long time satisfaction. 
Im still discovering and will always be lifes humble student. 
Yesterday morning I almost puked as I were to move from one apartment to another within the same city. Babysteps😂just saying. To go from the known to the unknown. But as I arrived, my heart opened big and my body relaxed deep. It showed there was something here for me, I could trust the feeling I got when I arrived here to see the place for the first time.

So change can be felt like a whirlwind and a puke, but I´m learning more and more to trust the short time discomfort to come to serve and open the way for long time alignment.
