Grateful – Morning Gratitude

Oh good morning everyone

Grateful for great night sleeps, long and short
Grateful for my body, waking up fresh and ready for the day, each day
Grateful for my home and bed that comfort my body so much
Grateful for this view each morning when I wake up at home
Grateful for the planet, the beach and sea I get to enjoy
Grateful for the people in my life I get to contribute to
Grateful for the people in my life that have my back
Grateful for mom being with me, creating and organizing more and more with me
Grateful for being alive and the adventure of living
Grateful for the space of no judgment that keeps on increasing everywhere
Grateful for so much more I cannot even begin to describe!

What magic and wonder awaits today my friends?


Feeling safe and being at home in my own body and life has been one of the greatest gifts that the last year has given me.

‘Being at home’ is not something static.
I made a big demand to myself, for childlike non-judgment wonder and curiosity… Allowance of what is. Living life. Creating it by question and choice… and it some of it never shows up like I think it will…

My body keeps on letting me know how happy it actually is, whatever mood I’m in. It’s been so light and easy and so alive! It wakes me up in the morning, mostly before my alarm goes, ready to go and live…Receiving that and being truly intimate with that, kinda makes my eyes swell up.

Our own wonderland, starting from the inside, is actually so endless… It goes where you choose to go 

Body, you are so amazing…
Life, you are so beautiful…

Gotta love these wonderlands

10356265_10153138632770736_129762899977913490_nHave you ever wondered if you could do or be something, and then… you did it? Or became it? Or got it?

Are you still wondering? In the midst of all the fast, busy, work, relationships and other wacky things?

Do you still have it? Do you recognize your wonder? Or did it become a little dusty with everything you had to do and be…?

Last two weekends I facilitated another series of Access Consciousness Classes. ‘Another class’ does never quite grasp the wondrous character of each class. Im still buzzing myself.

What all these tools can create and change!

The wonder I see invoked in peoples worlds and bodies… The continuous ‘wake up’ during class is very disarming and captivating… Especially when people surprise themselves!

The moments like: “Omg… can I really do this? Can I be this…? Really, I’m not wrong? Am I capable of this…? Somehow I’ve always known about this…”

Really…? 😉 What DID you know? What you always knew and couldn’t really… grasp? Or access?

It is really ‘waking up’ because we all are this by ‘nature’…

The wondrous spark in someones eyes, the occasional tears of recognition, acknowledgement and possibility… the body that come to life…

The sense of powerlessness coming off, the knowing opening up, awareness expanding and the receiving of self and others dynamically increasing…

Sinking in, like a feather, pinch… or like a sledgehammer!

All these inner or outspoken adventures people flow through in just four days… Lucky me to witness this time after time!

When the colored veils come off, people have an entirely different world. It might be the same world, yet their perception of it might be wider, greater, bigger, grander…


I wonder what they will all choose now? To live, be, do, have, create…?
And what wonder their lives will open up to?

So I wonder… what would it be like to wonder? And to keep on wondering?
Not because I write it…
What if you were to wonder for nobody else but… you?


I woke up again today.
Breathing… Alive. Are you alive and living today?

Five months ago my body nearly died of a huge lung infection and two collapsed lungs. “What?” Yeah. BAM. Just like that.
That was a major wake up call for me to truly Live.

“What the heck is truly living…?”

I’m alive. Living. Kinda sobbing of gratitude as I write this.
There were so many moments I thought my body wasn’t going to make it, and it did make it.
My amazing body made it. Wow…

Are you alive and living…?

Being alive is a miracle… Your body is a miracle. Everything is a miracle.
I choose the second option in Einstein’s quote

I’ve always known it, looked for it, searched it yet so much of what is out there is not choosing the miraculous approach to life.

So… what do You know…?

“What is right and great about me I’m not getting? Whats actually right and great about having a body on planet earth…?”

Have you wondered…? Have you wondered what a walking miracle you and your body are? What miracles present themselves on daily basis?

Please don’t wait to get clear on what you would like your life to be like… Waiting doesn’t serve you nor does it serve your body.
You live now, not in the future, yet every choice you make now, creates your life and future.
You live here, now, with your body.

Start asking:
“Truth, what would I like my life to Be like…? What would I enjoy? What would I truly like to be doing?”

To be quite honest… Its still a question for me too… And thats ok ☺

If you would like to live life as a happy person:
Choose joy, choose happiness.
Choose to weather and receive all storms that present themselves along the way.
Choose to see the beauty and miracles in every situation.
Choose you, as primary priority and source of happiness in your life.

Be the miracle.
