Thankful Thursday – A Cliché? Or a Good Practice?

What do I have to be grateful for? Thankfully, plenty.

It is a lot of talking and writing about thankfulness and gratitude journals etc these days. So is it just another way of masking negativity and denying the dualism of this world? Or does ‘thought of gratitude’ actually bring something of value?

Being thankful goes way back in spiritual practices. It is a long lost wisdom that is being rediscovered. I believe, this new reinforcement of gratitude is partly due to the new attention and popularity of Yoga and Mindfulness etc.

But there is a reason for these almost cliché-expressions like “Thankful Thursday” – it actually works.

Being grateful has been shown in several studies to affect our brains in a positive way and being of great help in expanding ones life quality, improving the feeling of contentment and being at peace.

Off course it can also be used as a way to mask negativity. But let´s just say that that wont work in the long run. You can´t block things out, you have to deal with them. And as long as you deal with how life is and accept what is in front of you (or with in you) with a loving kindness, the practice of gratitude can really be efficient.

So how do I practice it? Keeping gratitude journals can be great for some. But I like to keep things more simple. I don´t believe there is a “You have to do it this way”. Try different approches and see what works for you.

Every morning when I wake up I take a few deep breaths, center myself in the ‘here and now’, and then I focus on the gratitude for a moment, while still in bed. Wich just might be my first thought of gratitude – our comfortable bed.? Other things that usually comes to mind when paying attention to things I am grateful for is ‘waking up next to Maria’ ‘having our Zen master Napoleon in our lives’ ‘waking up healthy, free of disease (if I am, off course)’ ‘being able to breath and having lungs that function’. And so the list can go on.

My one tip for you when starting practicing or just paying attention to things you are grateful for in life – Anything goes! Nothing is a cliché and being grateful for a beautiful new piece of clothing or for breathing fresh air is just as good as any thought. ??

Last but not least, I am grateful for all of YOU! Reading and sharing and commenting – spreading the love together with Maria, Napoleon & I.

I wish you all a Thankful Thursday ? ~ Märta

Important message! To all the women out there..

To all the women out there….❤❤❤

I will not write to you why this day is important – that would be to state the obvious. As long as I – as a woman, a gay (or whatever I identify with) woman – can not go free around the world, accepted as I am and choose to be (without hurting anyone else) – this day is needed.

Instead I wish to say to you all – I LOVE YOU! I wish to back you up. To tell you that what ever shit or problem is coming your way, you are loved. So face the problems with grace and love, out of a knowingness that you are held and loved.

I wish for us women, no matter the external differences and different opinions, to back each other up. To be loving, acceptant and caring. That is what I wish for us and for our future generations to come.

Nowadays we encourage women and young girls to be powerful and fierce – But I also want to send a loving thought for all the girls and women who are shy and don´t feel that they are fierce and strong. You too are loved, just the way you are. If love would be our first priority in society, having to fight for our rights would no longer serve its purpose…

So today I wish to encourage you all to connect with the true love within yourself, face the persons around you like you face yourslef. Spread as much love around you so that the fears creating seperation and nonequality in our society will fade away.

Be powerful, outspoken and strong if you are. Be silent and graceful if you are – but who ever or what ever personality you possess – speak out of love, act out of love and always always; let your thoughts be kind and loving – towards yourself and others.
When anyone gets connected to true love, the need for putting anyone else down (including themselfs for that matter!) resolves. Love and fear does not reside in the same space.

So If you haven´t heard it today, let me say it out loud and clear: You are beautiful, strong, vulnerable, compassionate, magnificent, powerful and most importantly – you are loved.

We are in this journey of Life together. Let´s back each other up, celebrate our lives and differencies today with lots of….. love! ?

Pawsome spirit

Today I sit in my new office at home. This is the first week with more time on my hands to work towards my dreams. I feel so happy and inspired! And a bit scared. ? That only shows I am on the right track.

My dream is to help women create joyful, healthy lifes through a shift in awareness. To help women ground themselves into who they are so they can discover their beauty and be Pawsome Spirits too! All for one, one for all. ❤ There is a need for women to start empower themselves and other women along with them! To (re)discover the strenght, love and joy from within. ❤??

I know what it is like to beat yourself up. That used to be me. When something didn’t go well how quickly I was sending negative thoughts to and about myself, aware or unaware of what I was doing.

And when you judge yourself really hard, you judge others the same way.

I’ve been through a lot – years of severe illness, stress, death, unhealthy behaviors, not knowing my true self and not knowing what was in my heart. ❤

But I grew wiser. And all the hard times has served me for the better.

When there is darkness, the light becomes more obvious and it can give energy to the light to grow stronger. The darkness however is not necessary. The light is always present, but we humans tend to not see the light and so we are helped by the duality of this world – the darkness and hard times – to discover the light and joy from within us.

So this joyful, healthy way of living is what we are working on – the shape and form of it is under developement and also, this is just the begining. ?✌? A begining that starts with – “Anything is PAWSIBLE”.

With lots of love, we wish all of you Pawsome Spirits out there a happy weekend! ?????

The change

Our home is all quiet. It is early in the morning and I sit in a moment of gratitude.

I have just wrapped up a week with a lot of work, laying a puzzle with several pieces, in order to move my life in the direction I desire. Hard work, intention, allowing uncertainty and trusting the guidance of the universe.

In two weeks time I am leaving my permenant job, which means working less as a Speech and language pathologist/therapist and creating more space and time for yoga, energy medicine and Pilates. And also for things yet unkown.. ?

My fiancee Maria and I are working on ideas of creating a network to spread more joy, abundance, awareness and fun stuff to share with the world. Let’s see how it goes!

But for now I sit in gratitude. With the intentions I place in my mind together with a willingness to let go and let the universe guide me. Simply move in the direction of my gutfeeling. A big change is coming. Slowly but surely. ???

I wish you all a Pawsome, peaceful weekend ❤ Lots of love ~ Märta

Do you have the courage to bring forth the treasures that are hidden within you?

Am I being true to myself? Am I living the life I’m meant to live – a life that most honors the real me, celebrates my deepest values and respects my highest dreams? This is questions that I struggle with every day now a days. Not only if I have the courage but more importantly – what is my gift? What is it that is going to be my legacy in the world?

I think that my future is going to look (and is already looking) very different from how it would have turned out if I hadn’t undergone my journey – the burnout – over the last couple of years.

My self-esteem was built only on what I managed to achieve at work. First as an authorized accounting consultant and then later as a CFO. I always prioritized work over friends, lovers, vacation, my health and hobbies, over anything to be honest. Now when I have been on sick leave for a very long time and have had the time to discover what I enjoy doing, I have realized that I really enjoy being creative, using my imagination, read books and to travel the world with my future wife Märta. Here a thought emerges. Is this something I can make a living of in the future? It’s a thrilling (and scary) thought.

Then my realistic self emerges and tells me that I need to make a living and that I should go back to economics now that I’m feeling better and is soon to start working again. And yes, this is what is about to happen. At least for a while. The difference now is that I have discovered a whole bunch of things that I enjoy doing, that a had forgotten about when I was working all the time. And today I made a promise to myself that I am going to set aside time to really do these things, and just not dream about them anymore.

Maybe I’ll write a Scandinavian crime fiction book. Maybe I’ll try swimming or paddle. Maybe I’ll start a book club with some new friends. Maybe Märta and I’ll go to a (scary) dance class together.

Its time for me to start living a more authentic life! I think that if you begin to do things that you are frightened of it might make life less scary in the long run. Will you join me?

Fantastic funny Friday!..with Spanglish guests on the way

I wrote yesterday about spreading the love. To send a loving thought, reach out a helping hand once in a while or just burst into a beautiful smile. We can all do that. ?❤ 

There are many ways to spread some joy, so since it’s Friday today, I’ve decided to keep it simple and share a happy, funny picture of Maria that I took in bed last Sunday morning… I am still laughing! ? I love my little book nerd, looking like Santa Clause! ??? (Notice it was the first time ever using an application like that! I think I nailed it, don’t you?!) 

And just to even it out… Here is a funny pic of me from this past week, om my way to work in the snowstorm… looking like a misplaced turtle. ?❄? 

Keep on spreading the joy and love in anyway possible! ❤❄❤ 

And tonight our Spanglish guests arrives… Qué bien! 

I wish you all a fantastic Friday! ~ Märta 

Compassion

I looked up as I was zipping up my jacket, ready to leave for work and go out through the main gates of our apartament building. I spotted a man who tried to get in. It was clear he wasn’t in a good state, affected by something, maybe drugs. I looked down for a second just to quickly decide how to handel the situation. 

The man started knocking on the door, begging to be let in. I opened the door and told him to go up to the supermarket with me instead, but then I realise he was freezing and about to collapse. I then heared the tone in his voice, desperately asking to be let in. And so I did. 

I called 112 right away and let some electricians working in the basement know that I was upstairs with this man, clearly affected by something. (Did they pass him by on the way in?). 

This young mans name was Martin. And he had spent the whole night out in the freezing snow, as it turned out getting numed by sniffing some chemicals. Probably he stayed out on our neighbours patio. 
Waiting for the ambulans I had called for, I noticed he could communicate somewhat. I went for a blanket and helped him zipp up his jacket as he was so very cold. 

By the first seconds meeting him at the door I realized he wasn’t dangerous, he was desperately asking to be seen and helped. 
I stayed with him, patting his back and talking to him about what was going on until the ambulans came. Then I left. Just as I heard his mumbling words “Thank you so much”… Me, who only did so little. 

I was shoken up. Not so much by the fact of meeting Martin, a person with a drug addiction,  a man in his early 20’s, spending the night in the street. What especially got to me, and made me cry as I walked away was that it happens every day, so close by and most of us are so numed by it, we start to ignore it. We don’t even look at people on the streets as fellow humanbeings, as equals. 

They may have ended up there by making bad choises, having terrible childhoods or just simply by fucking up. But don’t we all sometimes fuck up? And what do we wish for then? My guess is; compassion. And a helping hand. To be seen, and to be heartfelt. ❤ 

I hope you all are warm, loved and seen in some way and that you all send Martin a loving though. ❤ 

Let’s spread the love ❤ ~ Märta

Flow

Today has been a day of gratitude and flow ❤ 

I started off with a meditation in bed this morning, with Napoleon by my side…

And I finished the day with such a great group of people in my Pilates class. 

(I always forget to take photos in the yoga studio!?) 

The words that came to me through meditation this morning was this; 

“I let my life flow without resistens. I go after what I want, then letting go of the attachment to the result.” 

I let my life flow without resistance. 

If I know one thing for sure it is this; I am guided in the right direction. When I take action and follow my gut feeling – my heart – what is best for me will unfold. 

So my friends, that also means to rest in the uncertainty ❤ And that is what I do and it feels so good ? At least today! 

And tomorrow will be exhiting – fun date coming up! 

Good night, lots of love ~ Märta 

Time sickness and my true calling

It hit me today when I sat down to meditate and listened to an introduction by Deepak Chopra. I’ve been suffering from time sickness. He managed to put words into the feelings I experienced when I was stressing out the most before my burnout. He calls it time sickness, and this is how he describes it. 

“We all experience time according to our psychological state. Modern life has taken our experience of time to an extreme. Time is throwing your mind and body out of balance.”

What Deepak calls time sickness would be considered an epidemic.

“It is the ultimate lifestyle disorder because under the pressure and stress of racing against the clock life isn’t lived. We become robotically trained to measure every day by what we achieved or didn’t. The chores left undone, the relationships that we didn’t have time for. The exercise we put off. And so on. This is what it means to suffer from time sickness. Time sickness can be cured because it was borne in our own experience of time. We can change that experience anytime we want” – and Lord do I want to!

How do you know if you relate to time in a dysfunctional way?
Consider the following symptoms:

  • Feeling that there is never enough time in the day
  • Constantly looking at the clock and racing against it
  • Feeling the frustration and failure of not accomplishing what you want to
  • Dreading the passage of time because it sucks energy and youth  

Simply telling someone to stop doesn’t work. Trust me I know, I didn’t even listen to myself. The answear is; an inner shift of awareness.

” We don’t need a better time management we need a new state of mind.” Deepak Chopra

Deepak also said:
” Recognizing the time spent in enjoyment, and also the moment that causes anxiety, is a path to realizing your true calling”

This made me very happy! All my anxiety throughout the last 2,5 years will guide me towards my true calling and that’s what I’m dying to discover! My burnout, and all the problems that it caused me and my loved ones, will all be worth the while. Imagine finding your true calling. ?

Another wise man, and a favorite of Märta’s, is Eckhart Tolle and he said:
” If you are living in the moment consciously experiencing only what is happening now there is no disruption”.

I wanted to pass this message over to you, because it hit me so hard when I heard it. I needed to hear it and I must continue to change my way of living. I often fall back into unhealthy patterns of stress and chasing accomplishments. Imagine the relief of not having those burdens on your shoulders and to put the same amount of energy on enjoying life instead – just as it is!

 

This is the essence of an awakened life.

Namasté, Maria
