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! ?????

Wedding dresses! 

Morning  time again and I am in my quiet zone. The inspiration is flowing and I just started to look into wedding dresses online… Wooah one can get stuck for hours! 

I love design in so many ways – just beacause of the playfullness of forms and colours, the creative process! 
Finding the balance of alignments to enhance features is an art. Almost like a dance! In dance we strive to find the perfect alignment to creat beautiful shapes and forms – different constallations – and the skill is not far from creating designs (shapes and forms) in other fields. It is all a dance – a creative expression of life! And when done skillfully – a fantastic creation you can’t take your eyes from. Pure joy, if you ask me. 

So sittning here, in the cosy Hotel bed with my bride to be sleeping her beauty sleep next to me, feeling joyfull about planning the wedding and looking at dresses. Who would have thouth, some years ago… ??
  

 

But I realized I’m going to need some help!! So please comment down below if you have any ideas for where to turn to for a beautiful wedding dress! 

I like a modern touch, Scandinavian simplicity, with a bit of a romantic touch. That said- it wouldn’t surprise me if the dress I’ll wear at the end will look quite different. ? Things never turn out the way we think, so it is best to aim at something and then just go with the flow. 

…..(She woke up ?❤)….. 
I wish you lots of love and creativity! And please send me ideas for dresses/designs/website! ? ?????

Planning the engagement – The rings ?

Being the freedom lover I am plus having to learn to trust another person and having them close enough to get to know the real me, without loosing myself in the relationship, was one of the reasons i felt I wanted to be the one to pop the question. If I ever would. 

You see, I was one of those girls who never dreamt of getting married. As a child I thought the idea of a wedding was terrifying; having to stand in front of a crowd admitting and declaring the love for someone. And non the least, I had to learn to feel free within my own relationships. This took me some time and hard work. I didn’t learn it as a child so I had to teach myself as an adult (with great help and guidence). 

Now I feel great with our relationship! It sure has it’s challenges and it’s ups and downs, but that’s just life. And I am so grateful for having this experience. To have Maria by my side, as my love, my support, my peaceful companien and as my challenge. And also soon to be; my wife. ❤ Lucky me. 

Thinking that I in the begining of our relationship, when my dad got sick in cancer and past away within 3 months and my family was just torn apart, I almost walked away from Maria. I start to cry every time I think about it. Thank God, with Maria’s help, I decided to stay. 

So after all of this, I’m sure you can understand that I wanted to be the one asking HER to marry ME. ?

Last year I started learning silversmithing. And the idea came to mind (plus Maria and her sister Christel insinuating by showing me the ringfinger ?) that I should make the rings and pop the question. 

And so I did! Thin silver rings. Since I still don’t know what kind of design on a ring both Maria and I would actually like to wear most of the time (no obligation to wear it all the time). But a symbol for love that looks so great (or simple) we’d love to wear it a lot. 

About the proposal, we will soon tell you all about it! ???

The idea is that I am going to make new rings during this spring, I just have to come up with a design we like first. (And actually, we both are quite found of our simple silver rings ?). Got any ideas for design? If so please share them with us in the comment field below! 

Wish you lots of  ❤ and happiness from Bali ~ Märta 

What we eat when in Bali – Favourite restaurants and cafés

Let me tell you there is some great food here in Bali! For me it is important to eat clean most of the time since I notice a big difference in my health when I eat healthy. I have tried many options when it comes to healthy food and habits and have now found my way that works really great. I don’t keep it strict, but i know how to when needed. Here in Bali, especially around Ubud, it is easy to eat clean and green. Many places has got great food on their menues!

Our favourite resturants has been in and around Ubud. We will give you a taste of our favourite restaurants, starting with this one; The Yellow Flower Café. 

When it isn’t very cloudy, this café has a nice view of the volcano Gunung Agung. The place is run by an Australien woman and her Balinesian husband.  

We usually share a coconut and it comes with cute plant straws – really organic. ? 

The raw spring rolls with a peanut sauce with a touch of mint is to die for.  Basically everything on the menu is good. It is all organic, local and mostly vegetarian and vegan. Though there are some option if you are in the mood for fish or organic chicken. 

We also had a big breakfast here with smoothie bowls and papaya lime frappochino (the orange sort of sorbé you can see above). So deliscious! 

The tempeh and corn sallad doesn’t look much fun here…but it is so so good. 

The way to The Yellow Flower Café is lovely. Quite exotic for a Swede! ?? 

Let’s wraps it up with a dessert! A Balinesian rice pancake with shreded coconut, palm nectar, strawberries and bananas. Yummie! 

Lots of love and health from Bali ❤?❤ ~ Märta  

First yoga in Bali ?

Last night we tried another restaurant for dinner here in Ubud, or more like it, a café – Café Vespa. The feeling was more western than the other places we’ve tried. 

We shared a big coconut. They are so delicious here in Bali! The taste is fresh and not too sweet. Not to mention all the healthy benefits from drinking a coconut. A really good thing is to squeez some lime in to it. Yumie! 

Maria had an Italian inspired veggie dish and I had an Indian inspired dosa (sort of a crepe but glutenfree) that I filled with mashed sweet potatoe, spinache, schreded coconut and hommus. Delicious! 

Today we had our first yoga session and since we’ve been jetlaged from our arrival to Bali, we started off with some gentle restorative yoga at this nice place close to our house outside of Ubud. 

In the middle of a rice field, in the open air, together with Oscar the very relaxed  yoga cat, we got into a good vibe with some rewinding yoga. 

And off course, we chilled off with a dip in the pool afterwards. ??? 

 

Tomorrow new adventures await… 

Lots of love ~ Märta ? 

Bali night – Delicious vegan dinner in top rated restaurant  

In the middle of the rise fields, in what felt like a small piece of jungle, we sat down in a little wooden mini house, one with no walls and just a dinner table in the middle and cusions around it, to enjoy the Balinesian night. The smell from the kitchen reached us and we got really excited for what was coming. 

Our dear friends Melanie and Tobias, whom stayed in Bali many times, took us to an all plant based restaurant. They had preordered the starters for us and we understand why. The jackfruit tacos tasted like heaven. And the rest of the dinner to follow were just as good! 

Fresh juice and a probiotic drinks. 

So if ever in Ubud, Bali, try restaurang Moksa! ???? 

Now time for a stroll in Penestanan. Plenty to discover! Lots of love ~ Märta ❤ 

Why “Why?” is so important!

I hope you all are having a wounderful Saturday! 

I am on the sofa, lit candles and a cup of tea, Napoleon curled up beside me, doing one of my online courses with the intention of step by step creating my dream life

As you know, Maria and I are looking in to ways of expanding our living, to creat what we think would be our dream life. That sounds pretty good, right? But, It will take a LOT of hard work and significant changes for the both of us. And the motivation doesn’t spring from not being in a good place, because I am, at least sort of … 😉 

 Yet, this is what we are working on, step by step, to get to our dreams to become real. But why? Why do we do this? And why is “Why?” so important?

I can only speak for myslef so here are my “Why’s”: 

Freedom – to be able to work more freely, to be able to travel more frequently, and to be able to work from around the globe. 

Prosperity – I wish to have more time spent with my loved ones; family and friends, than what I have today. That requires the money flowing in to support it. I also want to creat more time for myself for healthy habits, creativity, hobbies and passions. Plus I want to share a lot of it with you! I have soooo many ideas and things I want to share with you! Plus, I do believe in ‘give and recieve’ and sharing is the way to do it 🙂  

I want to show myself that anything is pawsible 

Plus, if we will have children in the future, I want to show them by example that we are limitless possibilities. That we have more to chose from then what our society teaches us today. As long as we do it with love, connectedness to our heart, and in the intention of creating good for our selfs and the people around us.  

And my last but not least “Why” is this – I want to show myself that anything is pawsible.  

Why are the “why´s?” so important? 

So why are the “why’s” so important then? Let me tell you that the days when you feel like you´ve hit the wall, like nothing works, and like you are doing no good – those are the days you will need to remind yourself of WHY you are doing this. 

I wish you all a cosy evening <3 

Lots of love ~ Märta 

What to do and best Xmas present ever? 

We all face challenges sometimes, big or small, and this week has been a bit challenging for me. I believe that we are guided in the direction we need to go and combined with our free will, we end up exactely where we need to be. 

Right now I am feeling really tired, sad and fed up with my job (the one where I work as a Speech and language pathologist in the health care system). I got a bad cold this week and after a.. crappy meeting with my boss, it got even worse and I lost my voice. I know, I know what is said in eastern medicin that not speaking up or speaking your truth or shutting down emotions often effects the throat. On top of it my nose was stuffy indicating confusion or not knowing what to do.. I don’t always think these “diagnoses” are correct, but in this case they are. I don’t know what to do with work right now. And that is connected to life in general. Where am I heading? Am I doing what I love? (When did I stop?) Can I love what I do? Or do I need to change my job? Can I support myself working more with yoga, energy medicin etc? 

My wish is to work part time as a Speech and language pathologist (less than I do today) and part time with energy medicin, yoga, Pilates and voice therapy. Lets see what happens. Today I am just sick and sad and sort of giving up. Letting go. From there, good stuff usually arises. Or at least new things, when releasing old. And Maria and I are heading towards a more free lifestyle so maybe this is a nod in the right direction? 

Thankfully I have one of my best friends here this weekend (even though she’s out and about with her family and relatives of her wife) I still get some good vibes from that. Unfortunately the only dancing Queens we will be is right here in our living room. Dancing with their boy Noa who loves to play ballerina (yeay!) and leaving the night out on town, conquering the dance floor at a gay party, for another time when my throat and head is better..! 

So leaving the confusion for now, let me tell you about what I think might be the best Christmas present ever?!?! 

Imagine this; Maria and I waking up on Cristmas morning. Having a nice, cosy breakfast and then a few hours later – up in the air, with a glass of sparkeling white wine, toasting to our long trip to…. Bali!!! 

What do you think? Best Christmas present ever or what?!?! 😀 <3 

Lots of love to you all, xoxo ~ Märta 

Flying high on a friday night

Last winter I told Maria that this is the last winter I will spend in Sweden. I said “From now on, unless we are blessed with a newborn, I will spend one month of the winter somewhere warm and sunny. That’s it, at least one month during the winter time from now on – life is too short to wait.” I was cold, sick, tired and determined. I also strongly believe energy flows where attention goes. 

So before being invited out for dinner tonight – I booked the tickets!!! 😀 


Salt laquorice sauce with almond floof and raspberry sorbet – so good.. Thank you Ingrid <3 

Can you guess where we are going? 

Tomorrow, after the morning Pilates class, I will tell you about our travel plans and… what is going on with our baby plans 😉 

I wish you all a beautiful Friday <3 / Märta 

Freedom lover 

If we allow everyone to be free - mostly ourselfs - we give them/us the space to fly high, to grow, to love with no limits and to expand beyond the box that only exists in our minds

Freedom - is my favourite word. It is the most allowing, spacious word in the vocabulary, I think. If we allow everyone to be free - mostly ourselfs - we give them/us the space to fly high, to grow, to love with no limits and to expand beyond the box that only consists in our minds. 

In this life I have been very sick. Experiencing what it feels like to be locked up in my own body. Someone (me?) locked me up and threw away the key. I was trapped. And after being both the fighter, the victim and probably many more rolls - I gave it my all to become well again. I even learned to give it my all only just to let it all go. I did it all for freedom. To regain my health yes, but mostly - for freedom! 

What I learned from all of this is plenty. But one thing is that freedom comes from a place within us. When the body is sick, or not functioning the way we would like it too, an injurie or getting older, we are pushed to look within ourselfs to find peace. 

All the ripples on the surface, the big storms that life throws at us, I mosly look apone them with peace now. Not necesarily with happiness and cheered up positivity - no, I can feel the deepest sadness, meaninglessness or fright sometimes - but within the storms I now feel peace and a knowingness that everything is as it sholud be. Maybe not the way I want it to be, but as it should be. All is there for me to grow and experience and discover even more peace and freedom! 

In one of my former lives (yes I belive in reincarnation, basic spirit stuff for a spirit junkie like me growing up with a psychic grandma etc. 😉 I'll get back to that another time) I was a balett dancer, and dance has been very healing for me in this life too. Taking me through some hard time and also having to let go of it at one time. Or more correctly, having to let go of the identity of beeing a dancer. Nowadays, I just enjoy dancing once in a while - in what ever form I and the dance come in. 😉 

Dancing, like here on the beautiful roof topp of the Oslo Opera house, has always made me feel free! And that's why I wanted to share this throwback thursday picture with you. It represents some of the most important things to me... 

Lots of love and freedom to you all! ~ Märta ~
