” YOGA MEANS UNION. IT MEANS TO LEAD TO JIVAMUKTI.
LITERALLY: LIFE-LIBERATION. ”
What is a good woman really? ” When I was a young woman all I wanted was to meet my king and be the best woman a girl could be for him. I wanted to be the best friend, mistress, lover, wife, mother of his children… and so on. I was a young woman dreaming about being perfect for my king. And he would go down on his knees and ask me to marry him. And we would have many children, a beautiful house and nice barbecue parties for our friends. And the wonderful thing with this was… I got it all.
But one day I left my perfect life of one simple reason, I had come to the last line in the picture at the top on this Blog. It was the most painful thing I ever done. But I had no choice. And I didn’t just hurt someone I loved, I left my perfect dream. The two reasons that kept me fighting before was no longer the strongest reason to stay. I had given up it all. I had given up me. But I just knew that I had to stand up from that wet spot of tears on the floor for my daughters sake. So they wouldn’t become like me.
And through the years I have seen the universe testing my ability to NOT lose myself again. I have stumbled many times and nowadays the words on the picture is no longer to a man. It is to me. To remind ME to listen to when something feels wrong inside of me. Not wait to I have lost ” the good woman” in me. Today I rather be alone then slowly walk that road again making me smaller to please an illusion of mine.
Our partners is just teaching us about ourself through our own feelings. Listen to your feelings. See the warning signals before it’s to late. And act! It’s not them who are doing it all wrong to you. It is you who are letting them and their behaviour is triggers for you to see YOU, not them. Some people are worth fighting for. Some people are worth changing for. But ONLY if that person makes you better. Make you want to be better. Makes you glow and rise to your highest potential. Because the feeling inside of you is making you feel GOOD. There is a saying among American Indians ” Don’t let anyone block your fire. Don’t anyone kill your glow.” And my saying is, ”dont let that person be you. ”.
Thich Nhat Hanh says, ”you must love in such a way that the persons feel free.” Think about what that means to you not the other person. And try to go beyond house walls or to do what you want without respect for others. What does it really mean? I know what it means to me. #soulglow 😉
Sedan jag såg programmet ” Forks over knives” på Netflix berördes jag starkt av vad forskningen visat om hur mjölkprodukter och animaliska produkter påverkar vår kropp. Steg för steg började jag ändra min redan hälsosamma kost till vegan. Visst det händer att jag om jag blir bjuden att smaka en tugga av någon smarrig gräddtårta som ett födelsedags barn bakat själv att jag äter den tuggan. Så upp till någon 5 % kan det bli ibland men annars håller jag fast vid vegan.
Men även jag får kämpa med mitt gamla tänk när jag går och handlar. Men sakta så blir det lättare och lättare. Det är nästa att det är ännu lättare att vara vegan än vegetarian. För det är mer konkret och då enkelt. Jag försök också hålla mig ifrån halvfabrikat och tillsatser men jag har vissa saker hemma som gör vegan livet lite roligare. Som dom här två jag hittade idag på Ica. Tång kaviar och bön pastej. 👍🏻
Nä nu ska jag äta!! Ha en skön lördag alla!
I love Rhodos. And yesterday we went on our excursion of three favourite places on the island. First out was Profitis Ilias. At 1912 the Italians came to Rhodos and during the war some Mussolini soldiers had a little hangout up in the mountain. One part of it is a hotel now and the other part is a ruin. There is a small little church where I alway have yoga with the group.
One the bus down to the seven springs I ask the group to think about something in their life that they fear but know they need to go through. Because Camilla, who I work with, is going to lead the through a dark tunnel and out on the other side. Time to face your fears…
For lunch and some relaxed moment in the sun we took them to Tsampika beach. And again I fell asleep that night with a grateful heart thankful for the job I have and the possibility to meet so awesome yoginis. Namaste
I go to the hairdresser In Salon in Rhodos town, but I’m early so I go next door to the coffee place Bakery. I meet a young man who worked earlier at Starbucks so when I ask for a Latte Macciato with soya he knows the drill. But he says that they just have milk without lactose at this place and I explain that I am a vegan so I don’t drink cow milk in any form. He says he is sorry but the next second he turns around to his boss and ask him if they have any soya milk. The boss says very strongly NO and the young man looks at me with a sad face. But then the owners comes back fast and say something in Greek. And he send one of the women to go in to is super market that is connected with his coffee bar. And ta da!!! A latte macchiato is on its way with soya milk. During that hour he sold three!! One was to my hair dresser Jukka. That is service!
Min underbara kollega Marie Louise lagar mat som en gudinna!!! Vegetarisk eller inte, alla kan äta. Och jag åt ALLTID för mycket. Här kommer lite härliga bilder från vår yosoy resa i helgen blandat med hennes mat. Du finner henne på instagram under @maryloys och huset finner du under @lemoulinbas
In yoga . . . many may take one path as a key in order to experience self-realisation while others take another path, but I say that there is absolutely no difference between the various practices of yoga.” —B. K. S. Iyengar, The Tree of Yoga,
Vilken lycka! Idag har tre bäbisar från Santorini visat nästippen ovan jord. Ja växter är som tonåringar och vuxna barn. Ge dom din uppmärksamhet i lagom doser. Låt dom växa som dom vill men varsamt klipp av vissna blad. Ge kärlek, vatten och gödsel men dränk dom inte med för mycket. Vad du än tycker, så växer dom som som vill. Och håll dig undan ibland, så de förstår hur mycket de älskar dig. ?
Japp det var allt för idag från slutet av Mars i Palma.
You need to choose love. All the way.
Reflection has been my main thing in life. And today is not different then others. Sitting in my apartment with the balcony doors open, it’s Saturday and I just had breakfast with someone dear. Yesterday someone told me that there has been a lot of violence in my home country Sweden. Rapes, killings and fights. I also heard that the attitude among young Swedish girls are getting harder. My peaceful country is getting a little bit rougher then before. It’s not safe as it once was.

In Latin countries the attitude always has been a little more raw then in our Nordic countries. But they are also much more passionate then us up in the north. We usually joke about it, that it is the darkness and the cold that make us more shy and withdrawn. We don’t like to fight and make noise. And that it is the sun and the chilly in their food, that heats the latinos. In every way.

But regardless where we are brought up we are in a time in history where the human being has to choose. And to take responsibility over the choices we make. Because it hit us right back faster then ever. What ever we choose. As to always take an easy way out, blaming others for your own bad behavior doesn’t work. Never before in my life of 50 years on this blue planet I see now how the good or the bad choices we make gives a kickback at once.
We have to understand that what ever we use as an excuse of bad behavior as for example: revenge, ” teach others a lesson”, chicken out, blame shifting or ” this is how I’m brought up” doesn’t work. Because life just look at the energy you send out and hit it right back at you. Often from a totally different direction than were you were looking.
It’s all about energy. If you give small pinches in the side to others or a big smack in the face. The person you are giving this to crunch in their energy. They fold within to protect them self. The universe feels this and are your protector in a way. So it’s just says, ” Payback time on this one guys. What she gives we deliver ? ”

I read an article about how to make success in work. It demands hard work. And it’s true, but that is when it comes to everything. Relationships and family too.
I think that the world is upside down because alot of us make big efforts at work. But a mess at home and around us.
If you want your business, account at the bank and your success over all to grow when it comes to love, happiness, beauty and health. It demands hard work and good choices. And everything you put in to it counts. Good or bad. Your ” salary ” will show in the end of the month. On YOUR account.

I look at my plants. In the heat of the Mallorca sun I need to care for them every day. I have to put them in the shade from the strong springtime sun. I need to water them and talk to them. Because they really respond to my care or diss care at ones. If I want love in my life. I need to choose love. All the way! Giving someone a smile. Lifting people up instead of making them smaller. Open the door, giving a good tip, saying thank you thank you… ?? And water my plants.

Dearest one. You have to make a choice EVERY day, and leave the past behind you. If you want love and care, If you want beauty and health, if you want money and success… You need to work for it every day. Big or small. It always kick back at you. In a good way… or bad. It’s the law of the universe and no way around it. YOU choose.
What IF everything we say and do has the butterfly effect on everything around us? What if what ever feeling you will give others, will roll in and over like waves in others life and effect them on a cell level? That every feeling you create in others makes blueprints in their cells of either bad och good emotions and mark them?
That feeling of sadness, hurt, worthless, fear, useless, bad, anger…. and so on are feelings that could create diseases in our bodies? Are you making others feel this? Or are you creating strength and beauty around you? Who are you?
Are you someone who controls others by hard words, sarcasm and ruler behavior? Or are you a leader who makes your family, you colleagues and friends feel stronger, better and as a team? And most importantly…. Who are you to you? A team leader or an asshole? Supporting yourself with strengthening loving words or making yourself smaller?
Hey you!!! Fire the asshole!! ? You are worthy the best and strongest feeling of love.❤ Give yourself those feelings every day. Start NOW …❤And don’t EVER stay with someone who makes you feel bad. Because it creates illness in you body. Get out!! And don’t hold resentment or anger towards them. Just move on. Forgive and move on. Cause karma will take care of it for you. ? Its all about waves of energies and it always get up on the shore.
