When Your Body Speaks

0

Always listen to your body, they say.

It’s interesting how we can reject our inner hearing to our most important “home”, our body. For months, have I made sure that everyone from children to rescue Animals got a good start in their mornings, followed by snacks and dinner (lunch at school) Me, starts off with coffee and in the afternoon I realize I need to eat something… a croissant.

Dinner time, exhausted to make something for myself makes quick bites of whatever vegetarian food I can find from the refrigerator.

While Rescuing others …..made me realize that I forgot myself.

It’s never to late to teach an old dog sit! Time to change.

That’s Amore!

Prayers

prayers

I have been praying since I was a little girl.

I believe we all pray. Some more often than others.

Growing up in a “non-religion” home I taught myself how to speak to God, or Universe (or the same) When I was in third grade, I went with my school friend and her family to a Katholic Church in Sweden. It was so beautiful. I wanted to become a Katholic.

When my family went skiing in Austria, I had as an tradition that every last ski day I went to the Katholic church instead of skiing (as much as possible the last day.) My father went “crazy” and thought that was nonsens, and waste of money. But, for me, it was magic, lightning a candle, sitting in the wooden bench and look at all the fantastic Angels, Jesus and gold ornaments. I prayed.

Still today, when visiting different European cities (towns) the church is a must for me, and my young children enjoys it too.

I love feeling connected via prayers and meditations.

I read somewhere and it goes something like this;

When you pray you speak to God,

and when you meditate, God speaks to you.

That’s Amore!

 

Magical meetings on Hawaii

Amazing Hawaii

0

I have to pinch my arm several times a day, to remind myself that I am not sleeping (nor dreaming)

During my time in Hawaii, Kona I met so many amazing people, but even more amazing dolphins, whales and turtle. Snorkelling together with them on their own terms were as it should be, always.

We were early down in the water and when they approached us we didn’t try to touch them. With big respect we entered their “home”.

During my meditations every day, it is fantastic feeling to bring back the memories from my swimming in the incredible Pacific Ocean.

I feel so blessed.

Thank you Mia.

 

Let your Dreams Blossom

How do you describe with  words the beauty here on Hawaii?

We are now in our house, 12 persons together, finding different goals and dreams on our journey of life. Our house is only two minutes walk from our house.  Today, a mother whale with her calf, came into the bay. Mother whale was swimming under her calf helping her baby up to get air. It was amazing!

The birds are colourful, singing outside my window, and I can even  hear the waves. Its a respectful sound.

Today was the wind rough, –the surfers loved it though–Many went snorkling, however I stayed and watched from the cliffs. As a beginner, I didn’t want to get scared and ruined my days I have here. A whole group of dolphins came in and they were very playful. Even making spins up in the air. They played with leaves, and having fun. It was incredible to watch even from were I stood. I became so happy to see them in their right environment, and not closed in.

Later on  drove we to the beach area where you can walk in (not jumping like from cliffs) –however, the waves were still strong and high. With help, I was being taught how to read waves, and after some tries I went in. Waves are astonishing!

In the beginning, I was being washed up on the beach, like a plastic bag.

On our way home we stopped for smoothies — that smoothie was the most incradable one I ever had in my whole life.

During the afternoon, we had different kind of meditations. Later, I walked down to the beach sitting alone by the ocean together with my experiences today. I can only say, impeccable!

Its Divine Grace. I am humbled speachless.

My dreams are blossoming,

Mahalo (Thank you)
