Learn how to Manifest Your Ideal Relationship Quickly
Not that long ago, I talked to a client about what her ideal relationship would look like and what her expectations were when it came to relationships.
It turned out, that she had never thought about it and in her experience, relationships were always about struggle and fights in exchange for not having to be alone.
How Can We Start Building Stronger Communities?
As somebody who has been involved in all kinds of communities all her life, I’ve seen a lot of what has worked and a lot that didn’t when it comes to building stronger communities.
And when we judge according to our experiences, it seems like there is no simple answer, to the question of how we can start building stronger communities or uniting lots of individuals to work towards a common goal.
But when we look from a higher perspective, there is one simple answer, that only needs two components to work:
How to Overcome Loneliness and Find Oneness
How can we overcome Loneliness? Loneliness and a fear of loneliness have been constant companions of mine, for the first 40 years of my life. Yet, I was never alone. I felt like I was playing a role, and I was. This only changed when…
How to Save Our Planet in 3 Easy Steps, So You Can Start Today!
Maybe to save our planet is not so hard after all. Yesterday, I had a conversation with our planet. And whether you think the planet actually talked to me, or I just had a thought, it just made sense. Here’s why:

I’ve Tested 9 Fair & Sustainable Espresso Beans
One of my daily joys is drinking a cup of espresso. I love the smell of the espresso beans, grinding them, and then seeing the coffee pour into my cup.
So, I was curious to find out what our choices are when it comes to fair and sustainably produced and roasted espresso beans.
My new favourite Sustainable & Sonic Electric Toothbrush
I really enjoy brushing my teeth with an electric toothbrush and that if given the choice, I’d not want to go back to just a regular toothbrush.
But wouldn’t it be great if there was a more sustainable option here as well? There is!
We’ve Tested 3 Sustainable Dog Food Brands – This Is What We Found Out!
Why sustainable dog food? – As I’m on my journey to reducing rubbish and living more consciously, dog food caught my attention as the big cans I was buying for the dogs constituted a big part of what I had to recycle. Listening to Saving Us by Katharine Hayhoe, I became curious about the idea of feeding dogs food based on insects…

Standing on the shoulders of giants
I recently heard the quote: “When you invent the car, you also invent the car crash.”
Too often we find ourselves hesitant because we want to avoid mistakes, or possible disasters.
Once we become aware that we are only taking steps in a process of a collective evolution, the fear can dissolve and make room for the joy of exploration.
Everything has a shadow. Yet, we need to dare, to evolve.
We all know, from our individual experience, that we have to try some things and learn for ourselves, to believe them.
The same is true for our collective humanity.
Whatever we do, we are just the messenger of something that is needed for this evolution.
These people have proven what benefit is possible for all of humanity, if we dare. We can learn from them, so that we, too, may dare to be our true and best selves.
Helen Keller and Making the Impossible Possible
I first learned about Helen Keller when I went to High School in the US and read her biography in a vocabulary building class.
It was the same class, in which I also first learned about Maya Angelou.
What struck me, and what I could relate to, was the feeling of alienation and feeling misunderstood by the adults around growing up.
Pablo Picasso a Genius at Using the Beginner’s Mind
I think in the 80s, it was quite impossible to grow up without knowing Pablo Picasso.
I did not have a lot of access to art or discussions about art, but what I did have were calendars or postcard books by artists, with their drawings and paintings and quotes or explanations.
I remember spending a lot of time reading about the artists and studying their work.
Maya Angelou Modelled what it Means to Live with Grace
I first read ‘I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings’ by Maya Angelou when I was an exchange student in San Diego, in the US.
For me at age 16 or 17 it was the first time that I found myself in an environment where I belonged to the small minority of white people.
I think at the time, that was as confusing and new as being surrounded by palm trees at school, a presence that until then was exclusive to vacations.
FACES OF PRIDE
For Pride 2018 I interviewed Pride organizers around the world – especially in those countries where it is still a lot harder to be out and proud. Our souls need to be able to express and be freely, each and every person deserves the right to live their truth and shine their light bright. Like the ‘giants’ above, these people do incredible work and their drive, believe and actions can be an inspiration to us all. You can read all Faces of Pride Interviews here and download the zine that I created out of the interviews below.

What does it really mean to be free?

Sing, Soul, Sing
What is it that makes your soul sing? When are you happy, and when do you feel free? I feel most happy and free when I allow myself to be present. When I allow myself to forget about all plans or duties and just get in the flow of experiencing and becoming. Most of...
How Can We Be Soft? Do you know?
Dear Future Self, how can we be soft? And sweet and loving and kind? Do you know yet? This is such an incredible journey, yet I know there is so much I still have to learn. I just listened to this wonderful compilation, what a perfect way to start the day!"Stretch...
Do You Believe in God?
I have to admit that I have my difficulties.
I grew up believing in God. Not that long ago, I opened my very first diary to a random page and read about how grateful I was, that I always had God to talk to.
Then my education made me believe that there was no God. I came to the conclusion that God, or any kind of belief, was used to explain things we couldn’t explain ourselves yet.
What Do You Dream About?
Today I have had people around me for two weeks in a row, after a year of mostly being by myself.
In this year, I had friends coming to visit for a weekend occasionally, and I met people sporadically, but I was also going for weeks without being around other people at all.
In the beginning, especially in fall/early winter, it was difficult to be by myself. I thought I wanted to have a family, and a lively house.
It’s all I ever wanted, I thought. But it turned out it was only all I ever knew to want.
What Inspires You?
What inspires you? I find nature to be the most precious inspiration.
It’s quite funny how we as humans think we can try to come up with solutions for everything when most of the most perfect ways to exist, are already present in nature.
What do we need to fly? Ask the birds.
What do we need to swim or dive?
What’s the Meaning of Life?
For me right now, the meaning of life, I suppose, is a mix of being and becoming, it’s being present and open to evolving freely.
The meaning of life is to go beyond what we know.
It’s experiencing what’s here now and to take that experience as something that opens us up for deeper levels of experiencing.
Do You Feel Like You Belong?
One of the places I feel most uncomfortable is to be in a group with other women. Not just any women, but women who are able to embrace their femininity.
The vulnerability required for that is still hard work for me. Too deep run the patriarchal assumptions that sweetness is weakness and intuition is inferior to rationality.
Dear Yesterday’s Self – I Can See Much Clearer Now
Dear Yesterday's Self, Thank you for what you wrote yesterday and the effort you put in to get there. Because of it, I have a few more insights to add: When you say: In this dream, each person can see other people for who they are: another person. Someone special. A...
Intentions, Changes & Boundaries – What Are Yours?
Today is a difficult day for me because it’s the first day of sharing my new home with three other people for the next three weeks, and I’m still a little insecure when it comes to stepping up for myself and setting my boundaries.
