On this page I share short posts about what inspires me in the moment.
I am not sponsored by any of the companies/brands/people I mention below. There is no intention other than to share what I find and inspires me. Whenever I find something I want others to know about it too.
My intention is to keep the posts short. If you want to know more about one of them, ask me or click on the links I share. The first post you see is the newest one.
WEEKLY WAVE OF SANITY
I started listening to Alan Cohen and I want to recommend his ”A weekly wave of Sanity” . Alan delivers an inspirational message appropriate to current events. He records them live once a week and then they are available on his YouTube channel.
This fall, starting september, I will participate in Alan’s online course ”The master keys of healing.” based on his new book.
”Outer change naturally follows inner awakening.” – Alan Cohen
Sarah is the founder, writer, videographer and podcast host for ‘live awake’.
Listen to Sarah’s beautiful meditations on the ‘Insight Timer’ app. Two of my favourites are;
‘Remembering your worth.’
‘Healing through letting go.’
I listen to the Podcast ”Energy Matters” with David Gandelman and Cody Edler. ”Two leading experts in meditation as they explore energy and how it effects our daily life.”
I find that things and people come to you at a point of time. This podcast came to me at a time when I needed it. I am a Human who can take life and spirituality too serious at times.
Listening to David and Cody is inspiring, informative and funny at the same time.

You can find free meditations with David on the app ”Insight Timer”.
Four times a year I recieve the Alma Nova paper. They lift the topics no other paper will!
”Almanova is the portal for health with the ambition to become Sweden’s largest portal for alternative, complementary and integrative medicine.”
On their website you can find inspiring and interesting articles too.
Since December 2019 I have been going to a Bicomtherpist for treatments. Bioresonance is a type of Frequency treatment. For me, it has been so healing, my body answers well to the treatments and it has given me clarity and answers.
Dr. Sanna Ehdin describes it well in this post about frequencies.
“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.” – Nikola Tesla.
When Tree of Brands introduced Callys to me I had to try it. Nature meets science.
There are five products and I have tried two of them now, Serum Glycolagen and Hyaluron. Natural fillers. The next one I want to try is the eye gel. I need time with a product or brand before I can get behind it. So I would wait with this post but I got too excited. I work with two of the brands that Tree of Brands distribute today, Marina Miracle and Lip Intimate Care.

One day I want to have my own little herb garden. The herbs I want now are rosemary and thyme. I used to try something because I read about it. Now, I listen in and eat it. After weeks of still wanting these herbs every single day I got curious. I googled. Wow, the healing effects of these two medecinal plants.
The body knows what it needs and all we have to do is listen. I had a long cold when I started craving Thyme. Turns out it is mucosal (slemlösande), contains antibacterial oils and strengthens the immune system!
Rosemary is rich in antioxidants, speed up digestion and is good for low blood pressure as it stimulates the blood circulation in the body.
I am all about Durra flour now, I love it.
Durra flour is glutenfree and rich in minerals and fibers. It has a great taste and the texture is similar to regular flour which makes it easy to work with.
I make this flatbread with grated potatoes and durra flour. Boil potatoes and keep them in the fridge. You can use almond flour too and mix with the durra flour, it makes the bread more crispy and so yummy. Add salt and fresh herbs to the dough and fry the flatbreads.
When I start something new I often go all in.
I was inspired by the Wim Hof Method and cold showers. It was challenging at first. Then it got easier and easier and I started to appreciate it. It is still challenging some days. I start with a warm shower and then change the temperature gradually. I end with the coldest for a little time. This summer I want to continue outside in the sea (it is cold in the south of Sweden) and in the outdoor shower we have there.
”The cold in your shower doesn’t trigger fight-or-flight—instead, it’s an environmental stress that causes your body to exercise the cardiovascular system and relieve the burden on your heart.”

The power of the breath and trying different types of breathwork/Conscious Breathing is so interesting.
First I started practicing the WHM – Wim Hof Method. In the app WHM there is a breathing guide. You don’t need the app but for me it has been a useful tool.
I have tried virtual breathwork with Michelle Baker too. She is so inspiring and the sessions were magic and completely different for me. The first one was intense with lots of emotions coming up. In the second one, I fell asleep.

When I’m writing this I am diving deeper into the menstrual cycle.
One woman who inspires me now is Jenny Koos.
When I listen to Jenny Koos I realize how much I still don’t know about the female body. She shares information on her website and I have listened to podcasts where she has been the guest.
People who dedicate their entire life to spreading knowledge and information about one specific area inspires me. I often wonder how they chose that one thing. Or how that thing chose them…
”We are blessed with this cyclic force. If we connect with this power and wisdom it guides us through life. In each phase, we have access to different superpowers that can be used to improve our lives and to gain insights. Unfortunately, most of us miss out on this part of it, we see only the hassle and messiness. To be balanced we need to accept and cherish that we are cyclical beings with different needs and moods during the month and listen to what appears.”
I have fallen for the Handpan instrument. I have never felt so strongly about an instrument. I am sensitive to sound in the way that my body reacts to the vibrations. The Handpan, wow! One day I want to have one of my own.

Look at the amazing videos with Hang Massive and Nadayana on Youtube.
CRYSTAL PENDULUM (PENDEL)
A pendulum is said to be an extension of your intuition. For me, it has been a challenge to fully trust and follow my intuition. For me, the pendulum gives me that bit of confirmation when I need it.
When a teacher of mine didn’t answer my questions I got frustrated and asked him why he didn’t. His answer was this,
”Emma you don’t want answers, you want me to confirm your own answers.”
I know within that I don’t need the pendulum either. But I want to keep it for now. I think it’s magic.

I love coffee.
I use organic grounded coffee. Preparing and drinking coffee is a ritual for me.
As with everything I dive in to and love I need to listen in and try to find balance. Some days and periods I am more sensitive to caffeine than others.
For me, it is Organic high-quality coffee or no coffee. I want it hot and I want it black.
Now I’m into Kafferosteriet Koppar. On their website you choose the coffee you want, they ground it for you and you get it the next day. They have caffeine-free coffee too.
I saved some coffee-grounds (kaffesump) and made a simple body scrub with coffee and coconut oil. It was amazing!
I love fennel. I started using fennel seeds when I learned about Ayurveda. Fennel is known for it’s healing and positive effects on digestion. I was recommended to chew on them at the end of a meal. Sometimes I make Fennel tea. Boil water with fennel seeds for about 5 min. Let it simmer for a few minutes.
I have a typical nordic pale and sensitive skin. I love having a natural tanned skin without sunbathing. I have tried so many different self tan products.
Zuii Organic products are the first ones that I can stand behind.
Products with natural, vegan and organic certified ingredients such as Bambu, raw cacao and grapes give the skin a moisture boost and a natural tan effect with a light scent of cacao.
Use it on cleaned and newly peeled skin. The easiest way to apply it is with Zuii’s Tan Applicator. Add some coconut oil if you want.
I know we are privileged with clean and fresh water in Sweden. It is an incredible natural resource we have. Meaning I might not need this but I have bought a water filter. I like the ritual of filling it with new water daily. This way I give love and value to the water I have access to. It is also a good way to see how much water I drink. I used filtered water to make ice cubes and now I give it to some of my plants too. My cat who always drink from my water glass seem to like it too.

If you read the post about herbs above you know about my process. I try to do the same with crystals. I choose it and then I read about it. It is so cool, every time it is a wow! moment and no question about why I wanted that specific crystal.
Being the person I am I went all in during this time. I wanted to collect, I wanted a new one and then a new one and a new one. One day I sat with my little collection of crystals and my inner voice said ” You know, you only need three of these now.”
Selenite. Clear quartz. Smoke quartz.
Selenit. Bergskristall. Rökkvarts.
I haven’t thought about getting a new crystal since. Less is more. With crystals too. These three are the ones I need now. That will change too.
I got the crystals from Oh la moon.
