Trust Your Heart – in Art & Life
I’ve wanted to draw and paint my whole life. But I have never really gone for it. One of the things I have struggled with and still struggle with today is: What’s the point? I want to make a difference, how is creating a couple of drawings going to make a difference? This inspiring video by Charles Eisenstein and Edie Art helps us think about these feelings in a new way. It’s OK to trust your heart…
Reclaiming our Quiet
The last couple of weeks have been a bit strange for me. It’s like I have lost my focus and have somehow paralyzed my brain. I am distracted in all directions and not much is coming out of my hands.
I’m still a fully functioning person, but at the same time there are deeper things that I am longing for, dreams, desire, purpose, that I don’t seem to be able to access in a real “lived state.” I’ve become quite confused about what I really want and what could help me feel like I live my purpose and provide a sense of fulfillment. And it feels frustrating.
The magic of Gratitude Journaling
I have a very small grey notebook, and almost every day, at the end of the day, I write at least 5 things down that I am grateful for that day. It helps me especially when I don’t feel so good about the day, because I shift my perspective, just before resting, to all the good things that were also happening. I don’t know about you, but I can really get stuck in the things I feel could have been better or that I could have done better. But there are so many other things too, and to shift ourselves out of a rut all we often need is to lift our head and look at what else is there…

How do you deal with Fear ?
As a collective humanity appears to be facing many of it’s own creations right now. Facing our collective creations isn’t very comfortable though. It brings up all sorts of emotions; sadness, anger and also quite a bit of fear. How do you deal with fear feelings? How can we shift & release them?
It’s usually very sunny and pleasant weather here, but November and early December are the weeks of Fog. Some years we don’t see the sun for weeks.
These kinds of days make me want to retract and retreat. They are strangely comfortable and mysterious. I feel tired and like I want to withdraw in a safe dark and cozy space…
Carving out Space & Time in a Full Life
After a few chaotic weeks where my energy and attention was pulled in all directions (and not the most uplifting ones), I decided to become more intentional again. Lately while the chaos was happening I had gone more with the flow, not setting an alarm clock but just getting up when I would wake naturally and let things unfold organically. Although this is maybe good to do when things are intense, I found that for me it means not much gets done apart from getting through the day and dealing with the most necessary…
