    change in life = change in care

    One year. Here. In a city that holds me like the sun, that makes space for all this change. Never resists. One year, here. I forgot until someone reminded me – anniversaries on linked in, my parents sending me a picture of exactly one year ago. February 18 2018.  I came here. With a plan – a man – expectations.…

    Self Talk 6.0

    Don’t be so surprised that you are doing well, queen of underestimating yourself. Take a step back. Your body knows how to handle this shift better than your mind does. Let it. Let it. Let it. If it wants to sleep for 10 hours every night, let it. Today you woke up at the exact right time to open the…

    Self Talk 4.0

    Girl, woman.  Less distraction, more direction.  Strip away,  Rest in the space created by simplicity.  Sleep instead of thinking all night.  Calm your heart,  having it beat this fast will not speed up the process.  Drop the rush.  Autumn.  Chai latte. Focus. Priorities.  Let it take time.  Hold what’s yours.  Hold me.  Breathe.  Wake up at 6 am – do…

    Practise, always. Rigidity, never.

    It is so easy to beat ourselves up about something. It is so easy we can do it a million times a day. We have this idea in our head of what is right and what is wrong. Expectations. Habits. We tell ourselves we will eat better from tomorrow and then a brownie comes along. We say we will do…

    Meditating in the Wild

    Eclipse season, mercury in retrograde, full moon. It feels like the universe is telling me I am not alone. We are all a little intense right now, even the stars. I can relax in the middle of it. Just let it all swirl around me and inside me, there is healing in the motion, in the commotion. There is a…

    “How does one love herself?”

    A friend sent me a voice message, in the middle of the night, while I was on a hill in Barcelona, trying to find the bus to go home. I miss her and she asks me how she can love herself, because, she says, I am good at that stuff. At first – I feel resistance. Why the fuck would…

    Life is Not a Yes or No Question

    I am learning that it is not always either or; not all or nothing. There is not always just one good choice. Sometimes both options are okay. Sometimes both options help you grow into who you are. Become a doctor, they said. It will be good. And I believed them. I became a yoga teacher, life coach, traveller instead. It…

    Fifth Chakra. Your voice.

    Here we are, at the fifth station of our chakra journey, located in your throat. This is the place where the inner world meets the outer world:  your throat is where the world comes in. Through food and breath the world comes in, and trhough language we send ourselves and our truth out into the world. It is where all your…

    Fourth Chakra. Your Heart.

    This week, we move forward with our chakra journey – landing in our hearts. The very center of our being, a beautiful place we should all spend more time. Except it feels so damn vulnerable to call it home. We are getting to a place where it is not just up to us anymore. It is about expanding and including…

    Sacral Chakra. Your flow.

    Last two weeks ago we talked about the first chakra and it was all about foundation, connection to something that is solid: your center, your core, something that is always there to catch you. This week takes it one step further: into your sacral chakra, located up the spine, at the height of the genitals. Yes. And it is one…
