You know there are sometimes ,specific moments in your life when you truly feel alive…

You know what i’m talking about right? 

I believe that we all have those moments no matter who we are, how old we are, where in the world we are or what profession we have…

It’s those moments we truly can taste life, feel the essence of life-force. Especially today in this fast paced society when people most of the time seem to be at two or three place at once as we have let technology take over.

it’s when we are here,.. In the present and in the now that everything else falls away and we can enjoy this sensation, this piece of magic as a gift given to us. 

Now… what those moments are,… well they’re entirely individual.

We all experience things differently and how often we feel and experience these moments and how long they last are individual as well.

I feel blessed…

Because i have had and have many of those moments, both big and small…sweet and short and long lasting :)

I feel extremely blessed to have been graced with such a big forces as music ,love and art as my source and key to access moments like these and were I can reach the truest form and being of myself….

The more time you spend in the now, the more of these moments you will have, both big and small. So before you go to bed tonight, close your eyes and drift away…Count you blessings and awaken with a promise to yourself to be more present and here in the now in everyway humanly possible… U will thank me for it later ;)

INSPIRATION”

53acc95d7adc0

It’s been  quite a while since my last write up. What can I say… It’s a huge combination of life , being really busy with my music and extremely horrible with learning new technical stuff. Since the blog has changed i’m still learning how everything works,… I think i’ll always be a pen and paper kind of girl. I still write with pen and paper when i’m in the studio working on songs while everyone else are either writing on their computers or their cellphones, haha! Guess I’m Old school like that, so you guys are going to have to be patient with as i try to figure it out and work my way around this newly improved blogsite :)

But I do hope i get a hang of things, so I can start updating you(soooo much has happened ) and serve you beauty, art , music , dance and loads of inspiration that inspires me :)

With that being said… here’s the first Inspo of the year ”In the Bloom of Earth”…

All pics are found on the internet and blogs such as spell, sisters of the dark moon , spanish moss and are for inspirational purposes only! I claim no ownership of the pics, inspirational use only <3

Summer is a perfect time for weddings & celebrations :)
And so we Went to a couple weddings this summer…

So here’s to summer flashbacks..

Wedding #1 Micke & Diana

The wedding was in both mine and My Fiancee’s birthtown. It’s a town about 2 hours away from Swedens capitol city,Stockholm , called Örebro.So we returned to our birth city to celebrate the union between my fiancé ‘s childhood friend Micke & his wife to be Diana.

The wedding took place in an beautiful old church in the middle of the city and the reception/party was held in an old park where we used to party as kids ;)

Drinks, meze,cake, culture and dancing all night long was def on the menu :)

Earth Below, Sky Above

 

So many great things and blessings in my life right now:)
i’ve had creative meetings all day with some amazing people!

I cant wait to create with them:)

But I needed time to refill… ground my soul… As the afternoon came my spirit and soul felt tiered… and the best way i know to truly clear my mind,cleanse and fill my body with light & life is to be with Mother Nature.

Let her Embrace me…

let peace and silence voice my inner truth and reboost me…
In her warm and beautiful embrace i release …

Thank U Mother Nature…
