The divine feminine

DSCN7374

The theme of the divine feminine keeps appearing in my paintings these days. I feel how the presence of the Great Mother is ever flowing through the paints when I surrender and let her be my guide. It is a calming experience and a feeling of total trust. She is the Great Creatrix here on this planet, where the elements swirl together, chaos and balance mix into Oneness in an ever flowing dance in the web of life. I feel how the elements in this painting are mixed together creating ocean of energy waiting to be used to create new life, healing, flowers and trees, greens and oranges, gifts from the womb of creation, filling up our senses.

“Let the new in my live grow into beautiful blossoming path. Let the beauty way be my guide and may my heart beat the drum of love emanating loving vibrations around the world, touching all.”

With peace and love

Ceremony of Spring

DSCN7275
This Spring Goddess sprang forth on my canvas around spring equinox. It is always magical when spontaneous art expression ends in soulful encounter with the archetypes. She has a gift to give. 

Ceremony of Spring

Enter into your stillness like a seed in the womb of Mother Earth. Feel her rhythm beating with your heart. Send your roots to her core, send your love, gratitude and thankfulness for everything she bestows upon you. Enter stillness and wait until you receive back her love towards you. Let it bath you in your heart and simultaneously send your love and appreciation to Father Sky, the Creator the divine masculine. You send the energy up your root connecting to the galaxy the universal heart. You will then receive his blessings and love streaming down your channel connecting with Earth Mother energies in the heart. There they blend and unite, the mother earth and father sky in creative Oneness and union within you.

Look within find your dream seed, the hidden potential for your most joyous expression in this lifetime. Find the seed and connect with it. Hold a real seed in your hands and have a pot of juicy soil from mother earth in front of you. Blow your wish and dream, your vision into that dream seed you are holding and visualize and see it already come to fruition. You thank the universe for your gift and the manifestation that it will now take care of your dream, just exactly like it takes care of every seed put in the ground, with the right conditions. You put your seed in the soil and feel how effortless it is. How the seed just grows into its purpose. It just is being itself. If it is a sunflower seed it becomes sunflower seed, it fulfills its purpose by being supported by Mother Earth- Just like you. Feel the trust in the Universe, in Mother Earth. How everything is taken care of.

Take care of your pot of dreams and nurture it like mother earth does. The magic is within you. You are the Creator!

May all your dreams come to fruition. Follow your bliss and become who you are meant to become!

Abundance- Enjoying little things in life

2-DSCN7137Abundance flows in different ways, it is not all about having enough money, but enjoying and celebrating little things in life. There are so many things we can enjoy in life that are for free. We can bask our senses in beauty and pleasures and we can fill up our world with colors, patterns, smells and touch that heighten our senses and give us sense of thankfulness and aliveness. In these moments our vibration rises and we truly feel blessed. We start to open  up to receive good in our lives and then the Universe aspire to give us even more. These are the moments when we become the co-creators with the life-force energies. In these heightened moments we surrender to the Now and become filled with positive feelings. When we begin to experience and notice these little blessings in life more positive experiences begin to flow to us. This is the starting point for more and more abundance to flow into our life.

May blessings and abundance flow to you and remember to smell the roses***

Positive Vibrations

The goddess of the sea

 

This image came through last week as I was painting with my son.  I meditated and intuitively chose the colors and started to paint. I often don´t know what the direction the painting is taking me, it is all about to trust. So I trusted and a figure started to come out of the sea and a playful dolphin. I smiled and decided to play with it. Energy swirls and spirals jumped out and I felt how the image made me happy and playful. I am excited for this new year and many dreams are gestating and waiting for the sign of spring to jump forth.

“I graciously accept the good into my life”. This is my mantra for the coming year.

May 2015 be the year of seeing your dreams manifesting into reality.

Blessed be

Moving into the void with the dreaming bear

 

björninnNow in the Northern Hemisphere we are moving into the cold dark winter months of hibernation and introspection. I feel it strongly when the wind is blowing outside and it is dark and the energy seems slow and heavy. When meditating couple of days ago I found myself moving into the underworld of Mother Earth which I do when I journey to meet my power animal and suddenly I moved deeper under, like I was taken deeper into Mother Earth and I was greeted by a big Polar bear. I welcomed it and he took me into his cave which was beautiful crystalline and there was a pond where I could see the sky and the galaxy and we travelled down there into the sky moving into deep inner space. It felt wonderful to fly off with the dreaming bear. He told me to move deeper into myself and there I can find the vastness of source that is emanating everything. He also told me to move deeper into my dream and that the dark and the cold winter months are opportunities to look within and really feel what is my path. There I can start to work the soil and prepare it for the dream seed that will start to grow next spring. I can feel this energy working for me because our dreams change as we change. We need to regularly check within and see if our dreams are in alignment with who we are today, because yesterdays dreams are not always growing with us.

I would love to hear about your dreams and if they have changed? Are you moving towards them?

Enjoy the dreaming season*

Love and light

Autumn Wisdom

Harvest and release

The magic of Autumn brings forth the inbreath and outbreath of life, the flow of give and receive. We receive the gift of harvest, what we have sown is given to us. At the same time what is ready to be released is given away. The old has given its gifts of beauty and the cycle continues, the leaves fall away. It has served its purpose. Everything must go through its cycle of transformation, it is the natural law and that gives balance to earth mother and her children. In the  medicine wheel we look to the west, towards the setting sun, the death of the old and towards the transformation and our emotions. It gives rise to our intuition and our dreamtime. Autumn is good time to look at our outdated beliefs that have hindered our growth and release them as well as everything that is not serving our highest good. It is a good time to find our balance in body, mind and spirit and while releasing also receive the gifts and acknowledge what is working well in our lives. It is a time of de-tox, cleansing, self-knowledge and appreciation.

We are ready to shed the old to embrace our newfound strength.

The fiery Volcano within and without

DSCN4184-001

In the highlands near our biggest glacier in Iceland, Vatnajökull, a volcano erupts in Holuhraun, since September 2. 2014. Our wild and beautiful Mother land lets her fire out and makes a way for the new, a new earth and the new lava makes a new landscape. It is beautiful to look from a safe place but dangerous to be near. The fire energy is both destructive yet building new land and lava on this sand plateau is perfect.

I love this fiery energy in my country, it awakens me and startles me because its energy and weather is always changing. My motherland´s creative powers are amazing and it influences me. Creativity is vibrant and alive, it is ever-changing and needs an outburst. How can we learn from our Mother? It is true when energy builds up it needs to find a way out. When emotional tensions is blogged we feel volatile and uncomfortable, therefore it is never good to block energy flow whether it is an emotion or magma that needs to burst out. Everything needs to flow, the river, the magma, our emotions, our bloodstream, as within so without. Energy needs to flow, nothing is good static, static is stale and stuck. So lets flow with our emotions, find an outlet, dance, move, paint, talk! Lets express ourselves and trust that everything is good! It is good when it is in flow and we know the situation always changes when balance is reached. Mother Earth seeks balance through these eruptions and we need too. The painting I did reminds me of the fiery volcano goddess the needs to release her tensions and creativity. She is volatile yet building new land and her creativity and powers are so vibrant and alive. She is truly creativity in action.
