How to Trust

When we deal with changing and shifting deep, old programming patience and perserverance is needed along with compassion with ourselves to be able to transform and transcend.
Trusting has been one of my greatest challenges. Still there are many different aspects to it. For me putting trust into trusting the process of coming to fully trusting works as a meta trust and helps me getting to the state of trust I intend for.

And so the journey continues Β πŸ’šπŸ’œπŸŽΆπŸ™πŸ»

The Healer’s Disease

There is one thing that many healers have in common: the drive to heal others is greater than the individual’s need or want for healing from that specific healer or in general. 

Some people just don’t want me or anyone else to help them, even if I could and even if I believe that I really am able to. 

To always ask for permission before helping others and to only help if help is asked for is fundamental. To me it’s a matter of basic integrity and free will based choice. 

But so many healers (and therapists in general) don’t even recognize this and step over boundaries to help others, without asking for permission, just because they want to. 

What is the driving force that wants us to help others even though help isn’t asked for or wanted? That is what we need to ask ourselves when we get into situations where we are turned down and judge another’s choice of not wanting help or assistance. The answer is often based on the lower ego wanting recognition and confirmation, being the saviour. Boosting the lower ego, low self-esteem and subconscious insecurities. That combined with poor boundaries and taking on too much responsibility which also is about reducing other peoples own power, making them small. 

The most challenging part in this may be when it comes to family members. Eapecially as a parent with young adults. Where you still are the parent, but your child is of an age where your parenting is not to take over the full responsibility for your child, but more of a supportive character, coaching the young one into adulthood. If the young adult doesn’t want your help as a parent it should be respected as well as with everyone else, though it may be much morepainful than with other people. A basic question in that case would also to be if the parent is too involved and too close already to be the best choice in that kind of situation as well. 

In any case: we always need permission in order to help others and we also need to accept and respect their choices. We don’t have the full picture. Maybe that soul has another path to go and I am not included in it. Or maybe I will be at an other point in time. .

I am good enough even if my help and assistance isn’t wanted. 

It’s all good. 😊

Crystal clear

Free grown ice crystals on the lake a cold winter day.

Very similar to the pics of Masaru Emoto that show us how water crystals are shaped depending on the energetic imprinting we put on them.

If you haven’t heard of him or his work, you may enjoy watching this video:Β Video on Masarau Emoto’s work

The energy around the crystals is crisp and clear, crystal clear and I can’t help myself from thinking abut the connection to the geometric shapes formed by beautiful words and energy on water crystals. With these beautiful shapes the energy creating them have definitely done an exquisite job. Is it the energy of love?

It makes me feel crisp and fresh and happy in any case πŸ™‚

Enjoying it fully I am.

Footprints On Our Path

We finally have some snow up here, which makes such a difference. When we are in the middle of winter we do have just a tiny bit of light each day, unless it’s cloudy πŸ˜‰ Snow on the ground makes such a difference by lightening it all up.

It’s also interesting to see that when you are out you all of a sudden see tracks. Tracks from animals, people, cars or bicycles that you may not as easily be able to see otherwise. I find the traces from the wild animals most fascinating, because those animals are most rare to meet. With the snow it’s as if I get more close to them and they become more real, just by their tracks appearing so obvious. But the fact is that they are here during the whole season. Of course they can shift and change their routes, but they are still around. It’s just that their tracks aren’t as obvious to me. I need to look for them in a different way.

It strikes me that it’s a bit like with us humans. We always leave footprints wherever we go, whatever we do. We may not always be aware of it, but we still do. Sometimes they are easy for others to see, sometimes not. But they are still there.

And sometimes we walk our own way, where no-one else have been before, creating new paths for others to follow. Breaking new ground. Or just walking in the footsteps of others before us, simply because we don’t always have the need to break new ground.

Tracks and footprints tell a story if we wish to see and hear it. And there are so many dimensions to it.

I love checking them out when in nature and to try and figure out what animal it is, why has it been right there and where it was heading. Sometimes I walk the animal tracks and connect with the animals that have created the path. Becoming one with them and with Mother Earth. That is a walking meditation for me and opens a flow of creative energy within me that is very helpful and needed in handling the everyday world around me.

Also helping me to walk my talk, which is very important to me. If IΒ just talk and don’t walk that talk – then how Β can I be trusted?

So I just keep on walking, enjoying it and keep watching those footprints, tracks and paths shown in the snow. πŸ™‚

 

Wishing you a happy day in love and joy! <3

Home is Where My Heart Is

  
I got home to our house feeling empty and lost after two days of intense leadership training.  So I took the dog with me and a backpack with a thermos filled with hot water, tea and something to sit on. Heading for a hill with rocks and a nice view over the lake.

We got there and sat down. Connecting with the rock beneathe me, the trees, the sky, the sun about to set and the lake far below.

Enjoying the view and just being there, one with it all I just knew that my heart belongs to Mother Earth. And home is where my heart is, even though I felt lost earlier on.

We are One.

I am home with Mother Earth. <3

  
In love and joy!

Younglings Give Me Hope

  
Walking in the forest I saw these younglings and was filled with such joy and hope for our future. The pure, innocent energy within these little pines carried a message to me: “Take good care of us and help us create a world where we can coexist side by side. ”

Native American tradition talks about seven generations as in: we need to have that in mind when making decisions. 

“Before this is decided – how will it affect the next 7 generations? ”

This is a simple question. Simple and yet very powerful that also takes a great deal of courage to act upon. Because if we really would consider that question in all decisions made the world would look much different.  It would be a sustainable world where we would have a possibility to live in peace and harmony with each other and Mother Nature for a long lasting time.

At least that is how I see it : very simple and very powerful. 

Let’s take good care of the younglings and make responsible choices for the world to be a beautiful place for us all to live in. πŸ’š
In love and light

Happy Mother Earth Day

 I used to be allergic. To cats, dogs, different trees, grass most of all. This robbed me totally from the season of spring. I could never enjoy spring. It was more to endure and get through it with the help of different kinds of medicine. Pretty awful at times really. 
Today I don’t have that. I am free from those allergies, which is a story in itself, but that’s the way it is and that is absolutely awesome:-)

 I’ve caught up with a lot of stuff thanks to that, including having a horse and a dog and have felt an immense gratitude for being able to do that.  

Still the most beautiful thing is to be able to enjoy spring.!  To walk outside and look at and sense the green explosion without getting ill. Listen to the birds going crazy, watching the whole scenery shifting from day to day with the light encreasing.  It’s like a big miracle! And I so love it! πŸ™‚

Being able to enjoy Mother Earth like this fills me with deep love, joy and gratitude and also reminds me once again of the simple gifts and pleasures in life. πŸ’š

Happy Mother’s Day, Mother Earth! πŸ’š

In happitude and love πŸ˜€
