Make An Effort

IMG_6834See the positive side , the potential , and make an effort .

- Dalai Lama -

Even though I`m a yoga teacher, I still find it easy to fall into negative thinking.

Having negative thoughts playing out like a movie causes only pain, some thing I`ve experienced many times throughout my life.

Negative thoughts drain you of energy and keep you from being in the present moment.

The more you give into these negative thoughts, the stronger they become.

One small negative thought can turn into a huge , speeding ball of ugliness.

On the contrary , a small positive thought can have the same effect , blossoming into a beautiful outcome.

So here are a few suggestions of how to change your perspective :

Breathe deeply , meditate, do yoga and surround yourself with positive people.

Whatever helps you to quieten and relax your mind, will give you the opportunity to be in the moment and offers you the possibility to move towards a different perspective .

Create habits that make you feel good, stick to them and enjoy the little happy moments in life :)

Love & Peace

Perception

IMG_6588This morning I came over a wonderful resonation about perception I want to share with you :)

Where an adult may see a mistake

a childlike heart will only see

a particular way that doesn`t work

and where an adult may find a reason for anger and frustration

a childlike heart will see it as funny and enjoy a good laugh.

 

A childlike heart will even see a reason to laugh for no reason at all.

Such a person is already in heaven :)

Love & Peace

Peak Performance

IMG_6179….. is only possible with the right fuel .

I`m talking about your physical and your mental performance.

- Eat simple , seasonal and nourishing foods, including an abundance of fruits and vegetables.

Smooth , juice , prepare giant bowles of salads with everything you fancy in it .

- Get your vitamins and minerals from whole foods

- keep nutritious to-go-snacks, like nuts and dried fruits with you at all times

- stay hydrated – don`t wait until you feel thirsty – fill up with water , coconut water , fresh green juices

The most important thing is , that you always listen carefully to your body , increase your sensitivity , your sensibility and trust yourself on finding your own individual way to take care of body & mind .

Your brain – and body cells are just waiting for you to find out, in a playful way – every day – what kind of fuel you need right now – be your own expert – learning by doing will lead you down the right path :)

April – Organically Observe Your Energy

IMG_6072As a yogi you are naturally drawn to healthy foods,

yet responding to negative emotions and living in a hectic world can lead to reaching for processed

foods.

Make this month fun , healing and simplistic :)

- Eat unprocessed , organic whole foods whenever possible

- Have a break from meat

- Replace oils and butter with coconut oil

- Drink warm water with some fresh lemon slices first thing in the morning and continue drinking as much water as possible

throughout the day ( ca. 2 litres )

- Get as much green into your body as possible

- Capture good fats with nuts and avocados

- Have health beaming alternatives to sugar filled desserts , for example raw chocolate ice-cream : blend frozen bananas

with raw cacao powder and agave nectar

- Fill yourself up on homemade soups , smoothies and freshly pressed juices

Love & Peace

To All The Dreamers Out There

IMG_5697Do you believe in your own potential and that there is much more to you than meets the eye ?

If so , you are a dreamer :)

A dreamer is a person who`s not afraid to challenge society`s norms and not afraid to tread their own path rather than the well-trodden one.

A dreamer is someone who is always willing to take a chance and always asks why before doing something which others do blindly.

A dreamer is a person who has a great futuristic picture , which they work to achieve at all costs .

Dreamers are world changers :)

Dreamers chart their own course and destiny.Dreamers are always striving to be the person they were meant to be and are not afraid to be different.

I believe that everyone of us is born unique in every way, but over the years we work very hard to become like everybody else.

Society`s commonsense tells us , that that is the way to go.

Unfortunately commonsense is not always good-sense.

It`s just common.

If you are a dreamer you can not afford to work on society´s assumptions and standards.

You have to be unique!

A lot of people spent a long time on getting an education, so they can have that perfect job and earn a huge salary.

Unfortunately for most, the perfect job and the huge earnings never materialize and in the meantime they have lost touch with the very people, they are working so hard to provide for.

Yet few ask themselves whether there is a better way , they blindly follow what they have always been taught.

Love & Peace

Happiness

IMG_5716Today I want to share a little story I found the other day . 

Read it and let it sink : it´s simple ,it´s sweet, yet profound.

Once a group of 500 people were attending a seminar .

Suddenly the speaker stopped and decided to do a group activity.

He started giving each person a balloon. Each person was then asked to write their name on it , using a marker pen.

Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room .

The people were then let into that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written on it within 5 minutes.

Everyone was frantically searching for their name, colliding with each other, pushing around others and there was utter chaos.

At the end of 5 minutes no one could find their own balloon.

Then the speaker asked each person to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it.

Within minutes everyone had their own balloon .

The speaker then began : ” This is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around, not knowing where it is.

Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people.

Give them their happiness and you will get your own happiness. “

Love & Peace

The Beauty Of Everyday Life

IMG_5717Routine waits to be spiced up :)

The recipe of a balanced life lies in keeping an open mind , an open eye on beautiful events , things , nature , everything that you feel inspires you.

Make sure you allow yourself a few minutes every day to just take in Beauty , whatever that means to you .

Beauty creates silence and space inside yourself , somewhere you can take a little time-out , where you feel interely connected to your soul , completely at ease.

Your own openness is the base for your happiness. Being too focused may cut you off from seeing the beauty in everyday life.

Take small breaks , breath deeply , relax your entire system and open up for the many ” spices ” in life, feel it , see it , breathe it :)

Wish you all a fantastic new week with as much excitement as you allow :)

Love & Peace

The Best Version Of You

IMG_5551Until today , I honestly thought that moving to downtown Oslo wasn`t probably the best idea I`ve ever had .

This morning , after a night of listening to a lot of hysterical , verbal fighting , screaming and other typical “Saturday Night – having fun noises ” right outside my window , I realized that I actually don`t want to run away from ” life ” any longer.

Something had shifted in my receiving pattern .

I didn`t feel helpless and scared any longer, but even stronger in my conviction to always try to be the best version of myself , by eating healthy, doing a lot of yoga & meditation , simply to be there for other people .

I want to inspire others to leave their frustration behind and create the best version of themselves , by listening to their inner voice , following their passion .

I want to be there for others to help them creating a life which fills them with happiness , so they are strong enough to handle the challenges.

My best advice to everybody is : start with yoga and find your own balance and happiness over time :)

Love & Peace

Celebrating Life

IMG_5443I believe that natural , healthy living is the secret to inner and outer beauty.

When you eat natural , raw foods , you simply look and feel better.

Create a free -flowing internal system and liberate your body from blockages that have

developed from years of eating addictive foods.

You`ll find relief from stress , sadness and anger.

Integrate more and more raw greens and fruits into your daily diet and simply observe

how you start to feel .

Listen to your body – be sensitive , more sensible, open up to a fun , fresh and delicious way to eat and live.

Take one step at the time and develop into the most radiant and beautiful edition of yourself in your pace – take your time and be gentle and kind to yourself :)

Love & PeaceIMG_5504
