— Coming into the holiday season, what are some rituals that you start to introduce at this time of year? And what are some that you start to lose?
This holiday season, a ritual we are observing is the lighting of Advent candles, starting four Sundays before Christmas, beginning with the Eastern candle and ending in the North. It's something my family did growing up in Sweden as well, where the winter nights can be long and cold. This season is a time of reflection and introspection where we await the arrival of the Light, but also to prepare for the new year to come.
Morning light on my face is an ongoing ritual of sorts...walks in presence, feeling my body fully. Also creating time to sit in silence, to simply be, and to observe the mind, the heart, and connect back to the Infinite (iIdeally all before I take a look at any of my screens).
— Can you tell us about how sound bathing came into your life?
Yes, working with the art of healing through sound came to me in a ceremony a few years ago. During the ceremony I had a strong sensation in my chest and heart area. I also had visions of a blue energy streaming through my whole being, but more concentrated in the heart and throat area. I got the insight to work with song, crystal bowls, beauty and the energy of unconditional love in future ceremony and sound journeys. I also started incorporating breathwork and intuitive healing into my sessions; to help people embody and root, while also being invited to expand and open to higher levels of awareness.
— Can you tell us about the community that now exists around your practice?
I’m deeply grateful for being able to share my work with such a compassionate, and authentic community. I feel we are all on our own unique journeys and simultaneously we get to share our gifts with one another, being inspired and lit up by the work. It is a co-creation, and my work is inspired by the people that join and the vibrational messages I receive from spirit.
I feel we are growing stronger and stronger in the community to support the courage that it takes to do this work, too really dive into the soul work. It's not for the faint hearted, it’s for warriors, truth seekers, beings that know they have a calling, that are invited into the unknown to discover their path, uniquely and authentic to them. It’s an honor to witness the growth, to learn and to know that we are stronger together, and that we can help each other's processes, we can remind each other of the path, when the road is less clear. I am also passionate about restoration for the feminine wounding, the sister wound.
To support the feminine to rise, to awaken, and integrate the parts of her that have been hurting, to come back into love. To know that her true nature is wholesome. She doesn’t need to compete, or shrink, hide or dismiss her inner beauty in fear of shining, in fear of being dismissed, or excluded. We heal by showing up, being seen, witnessed, and honored for who we are in community.
— Being in the realm of healing and giving energy to others, how do you like to replenish your own?
The way I like to replenish myself is to spend time with people I love, and have a lot of spaciousness to be, feel, be present, and open to the great mystery. It’s more about the vibration than what I do, so anything that’s feeding my soul will replenish me as long as it’s quality. It can be a great book, (Book recommendation, O manuscript by Lars Muhl) nature and especially hot springs or any crystalline water source, life affirming conversations with my partner and with my friends, yummy food, adventures, playfulness, stillness, meditation, the morning sun, and my Healy (healing gadget).
— What is something that you are learning at the moment?
I’m deepening my understanding for the human soul, the descent and the ascension, through lineages that feel aligned with me at this time in life. I’m currently exploring the Andean wisdom tradition through one of my mentors. My passion is to find out how to best create healing experiences that will have a lasting impact on the participants I get to work with.
I’ve also been dipping my toe into intuitive astrology, which has been a joyful and revealing experience, more of remembering than learning.
— How did you feel about the Anaak photo shoot? Did the garment inspire any new ways of being?
I found myself feeling lighter, expanded, spacious and home within my femininity. I enjoy clothes that have a good texture and are made from natural material, it helps amplify the experience of connectivity to earth and feeling of my inner beauty.
