I'm a Norwegian woman living on a small island in Denmark with my music man and three young kids. I love writing, poems and songs, and to dance and drum, to read, meditate, to learn new skills, get to know new people. I'm currently studying vocal sound therapy.

Fanø Vesterland: Sweet Festival!

Facebook
rssyoutube

This weekend I went to the Fanø Vesterland festival. Like I have done a couple of times before. Always a nice time to be had there.

It´s down at the harbour. Two whole days of good music. Tons of happy people milling about. On the very creatively built festival site; with a huge dream catcher hanging from a crane, and. A champagne bar, lots of good local pop up restaurants selling anything from lamb, to oysters, to fish and chips as well as barbecue and fries…

Hmmm… for some reason my Mac won´t allow me to upload photos the way I normally do it…?! … (I shared a bunch of photos, though, on my facebook wall this morning..) It won´t even allow me to import the official festival program from the web. Seems it doesn´t like jpegs today. How weird… Well. I shall choose a heading image from my already imported blog archive then. Sorry about that, I was looking forward to showing u the colourful festival site.

Well. Let me share with you the video compilation I´ve made today, out of the bits and pieces I filmed during the weekend. Hope u dig.

I was lucky to get a free bracelet for this year´s festival. As my husband´s son plays the keyboard in Wangel, the band that played the opening act this year. (Kasper played a couple of years ago as well, with one of his other bands, The Grenadines. I remember I filmed them, in the rain. It´s on my youtube channel somewhere, as well as a couple of videos from gigs  in 2016.)

I look upon my festival videos as some kind of a “no frills, bootleg recording” kind of style. Handheld, phone made, spontaneously documenting more than elegantly presenting, the acts. I tend to shoot stills or record when I´m touched, or enthused. When I feel the joy of music making, going on between the musicians (and the audience)… then I want to join, to play along. Catch the energy.

The atmosphere. The… Love. I guess. Basically. Movin´with the groovin`. Sharin´ in the Good Vibes, yo. Aligning. Participating. Being in the Sound scaping. Yeah. One Love, One Frequency. Peace. (Yes, call me a hippy. Why would I mind. They stopped the Vietnam war, for crying out loud. Time we stopped accepting the American effort to weaken the peace movement by calling the participants hippies. Hips are cool. Or hot. Whatever your preferred lingo is). 🙂

Music is all about e-motions. Energy in motion. Art is all about emotions too. So is religion, and politics. So. Let´s just be whole hearted people. If the only word for this kind of (human-) being, is hippy… Then call me that. I´m all for peace and love. Who isn´t?

(Yeah, and what are they called? The war mongers. Why don´t THEY have belittling namecalling attached to them? A fair question, I reckon. Aaaanyways. Moving swiftly on).

My goodness, I have really improved my steady-hand-cam since then, man! (And very annoying with the people talking in the background, right in front of a quiet, intense stage act… I remember I had very good footage of one of her songs, yet had to throw it out due to talkative festival guests standing behind me. Sorry, but I find it rude to be talking loudly at a concert. Or in the cinema or the theatre. Why not respect those who have bought tickets, and go chat somewhere away from the stage?!)

Oh, here´s the Grenadines-shot: (It was in 2015)!

Windy. Is that why the sound´s shaky? Possibly.

Anyways. I can see from these old recordings, like I said, that I have gotten better at shooting and editing. Which is due to the festival that each year allows me in for free, to blog. Just because I asked if they´d let me. It´s an incredibly cool festival, in Sønderho, happening each July, this year will be the 9.time. The Fanø Free Folk Festival. International, experimental folk (and electronica, in my own understanding of genre labeling). Some acts are world music inspired, many bring loop equipment, home made wooden instruments, building up trance beats…

But that´s a different story. I look forward to Freefolking it again, a weekend in July. And I also look very much forward to Fanø Vesterland again in a year. If I´m home, and if the energy in motion (e-motion) grabs me and grips me, I´m sure I will be shooting video from Fanø Vesterland again.

As it is so In Joy – able. 🙂

Family concert Odense 12/5-18: SO good :)

Facebook
rssyoutube

Hello friends

Such a fantastic morning here now. Warm breeze crossing the island, eastern wind, hence not from the ocean, so we can expect high summer temperature today, so my husband informs me. There´s a scent of sea in the air. And sounds from so many birds! I´m sitting on a sunbed in my garden, grass has not been cut yet this year, been so cold until very recently. Good for the insects. And for my bare feet, this soft green garden carpet… And the sound of the wind caressing the grass and the leaves on the trees…

So much to be grateful for: It in turn makes me so grateful. Hahaha…

Jason Stephenson. I listen to him quite often. Mostly his sleep hypnosis. Hereby recommended. 🙂

But right now, that gratitude meditation is a bit too introvert and slow for me. Coz I was at a concert yesterday. Which has left me all high and happy. A family concert with Rasmus Seebach, Danish popstar. We gave the tickets to our 8 yearold daughter as a birthday present. Which all five of us then shared. We have listened to his latest album for a month, waiting for the gig date. His album that he´s written for his newborn son. About how him and his mom became a couple. About grand dad, who is a famous popstar too, that passed away a couple of years ago. About when his woman wanted to leave him and how grateful he is that she stayed… This guy dares to talk about feelings, emotions. And I think this is what makes people love him so much. This, and his great melodies, often in a reggae or latino rhythm. Yes, man. He´s cracked the formula. Consider me a fan. (Which to me is a word of compliment. Of respect and appreciation. Not some hierarchical concept where I put other´s worth above my own worth. I don´t do inequality).

Here, have a listen to one of my favourite tunes from that album:

I just LOVE the way he talks about my own younger years in house parties and in queues in front of clubs, and he times it to the 90s by saying “when Ace of Base was fire, fire…” 🙂
His lyrics are loving, philosophical, funny, self ironic, and his way with making rhythm with words is rather ace. Of base.
🙂

He sings in Danish. I reckon if he did stuff in English (or does he? I don´t know his work that well, my daughter is the one who´s turned me on to him…) Well, I reckon English speakers too need the messages he puts out there. Not many, especially not men, go into emotions at the depth and understanding that he does.

There was a children’s pit in front of the stage yesterday. Only people below 150cm where allowed in there. They all sang along to all the songs!! Very moving to see. Don´t know how many thousands were gathered yesterday, but the park was teeming. Selling candyfloss and slushice, and very expensive hoodies in pink and pastel blue, that hundreds were wearing, he must have made a fortune. (Beer counters stood empty, I´d rather be the candyfloss salesman yesterday, than the alcohol salesman)! 🙂

Think I´ll leave u here.
Got more to tell u but will make another post for that.
Have a brill Sunny Sunday out there today. Enjoy the birds and the flowers. If none of that is where u are, then go within.
There is always light in your inner silence, your Higher Self.
One Love.

Monday, 2. day of easter. Last day of free time disposal. Tomorrow back to early get-ups with school kids.

We came home late last night, from 5 days in Berlin. All five of us. Stayed in UFA FActory. Which is like an oasis on the outskirts. Or. 200 metres from a metro station… splendid restaurants on the corner. Ullsteinstraze.
Great guest house, we chose the shared kitchen, where we met other families. Slept well, all good. Café Ole, dojo, yoga for seniors, playgroups for toddlers, indoor cinema (built 1929) and theatre stage, a school where 60 kids attend, where the teachers get a room each and the kids choose whome to go learn from… Outside, there are farm animals, roaming rather freely. And no cars. Upcycling projects, green rooftops, solar panels and wind turbines…

Whilst we were there, though, it was easter holiday of course. So we spent most our time downtown Berlin. Kids participating in Rittersport chocolate making… we went to the Magicum museum… that was great. Some shopping, the hard rock cafe, aquarium… restaurants… a wonderful park, called Volkspark Friedrichshain…

Yeah. I took photos etc, to be found on my facebook wall. But not loaded into the mac yet, so.

What I really just wanted to say today is how truely lovely it is to have a day of rest after the trip!
All 3 kids are visiting their friends, and my husband is at a soccer game. So I have had free space for hours today. Which I have filled with movie watching, this one:

Very informative and uplifting. Consumerism explained, and how we are moving into a new kind of understanding economy, from a model of “me versus you”, to a “me and you” version of reciprocity and co operation, aligning to values other than never-enough profits…

I then went and treated myself to a durum kebab on the corner, and a cocio chocolate milk drink.
Shared some stuff in different facebook spaces that I interact with. Had a DOZE… and a dip in the bath tub!

Noticing my feet are quite sore after alle that walking in them nice new shoes… how lovely it is to just chill.
Loading my battery, gathering energy, just being without doing much.
And such.

Is the tale from my hand today.

Remember to chill-lax out there! Tak your time, respect your personal rhythm coming from within.

Just like Timothy talks about too, in the newest astro weather report:

Should I tune out with a tune perhaps? Well. Sound of tuning in.

Greetings!

I´ve updated my Linkedin profile. A couple of days ago. I´ve had it for years, but not used it. And the profile was not really… built. I was surprised to see how it´s developed since last time I checked it out. Seems it is a social medium where people actually hang out and connect over professional interests…?

Anyways. Here´s a link to my profile:

https://www.linkedin.com/in/lene-kaltwasser-henriksen-514b5b1b/

 

 

I just wanted to share some of my words from the profile really. (At first I wrote a much longer presentation, Linkedin didn´t tell me how many characters I had until I tried to publish it and it said something like 4000 characters too long…! Annoying. But I managed to cut it down to their accepted maximum size, hehe…)

Experience

Fanø AppTeam
Video & sound editor
April – July 2013
Nordby, Fanø

Three of us created an app for tourists to get insider’s insight into the nooks and crannies of Fanø’s geography and history. Telling stories through texts, audios, and video interviews with local citizens. I did video shoots and sound recordings, and edited these files into Danish and German versions. App is called “Nordby Fanø Byvandring.” Organized like a walk through our little village, with 12 stops telling stories about this island´s fascinating culture and history.

I have also worked in the film industry in Bergen, Norway for many years years, making documentaries and short films. Teaching school kids how to use video. Was a boardmember of the Media Workshop in Bergen too, for 8 years.

Education

Githa Ben-Davids school of soundhealing
Vocal sound therapist
Healing
Written and practical exam passed
2014 – 2016

I read Githa´s trilogy on her method of vocal sound therapy, and joined her course for 2 years. It changed my life. I learnt so much, on so many levels. Very grateful. The soundscan is relaxing and pleasant to receive.The vibration stirs the cells back into their original frequency. Releases blockages from the nervous system. Stress symptoms lower. Tinnitus may disappear. Autistic children find inner calm. The sound goes where it´s needed, not always predictable. But always good, never harming.
We work with sound in different ways. I use soundscan mostly these days, where I sing long tones above the client´s body, find resonance between the body and my voice and then hold that tone. We also teach clients how to use his/her voice and breathing techniques at home for self healing.

It is a spiritual practice. I ask for Love & Light, and let it come through me, to the client. So my job is to be open and receptive, and be a good listener for resonance and for inner guidance. Githa calls us listeners.

Education

University in Bergen, Norway

Cand.mag plus 2 extra units
Social Sciences: Comparative Politics, social anthopology, media science & organizational psychology
(An extended BA; 5 years of studies)
1992 – 2000

I´m interested in understanding human thinking and behaviour. To observe social patterns, and see how people, in spite of our universal needs and emotions, do things differently according to where on the planet they grew up.

Education

Human Education Group, Aarhus, Denmark
Hypnotherapy/Hypnotherapist
Graduation 2017
Member of hypnotist´s guild

International Women´s Day 8/3-18, on Fanoe

Facebook
rssyoutube

Hey there people!

Today, 13/3-18, is the day we give birth to the green party Alternativet´s own solo division/group on Fanoe. Long story, which is not the one I´m gonna tell u now. It just takes up so much of my hard disc, that I have to share the 8.of March with u now, before the meeting tonight. So I tell the stories cronologically. If u get me.

Well.

I was invited by Ragnhild Kallehauge, and her one-woman-ngo KUK (Kontor for Ukontrolleret Kreativitet), to take part in marking the women´s international day of struggle. Marking it for the first time here on Fanoe. Last Thursday.

In Bergen, where I used to live, this day is a big deal, with marching, paroles, music and speeches downtown… here on Fanoe I have missed it so much. So it is great I could be part of the contributors from the beginning here. I hope it is the start of a new tradition.

I told Ragnhild I would write something for this date especially. So I woke up in the middle of the night on the 1. of March, with a long rant poem pouring into my mind. Got a pen and paper and wrote it down.

It´s in Danish. Here is the video of me reading it out that night, on The Corner Bar.

Ragnhild did two performances, she is a storyteller. One scene from the view of a victim of domestic violence. Very sad.
And one scene wearing long gloves and a pink wig, being Lulu the Lapdancer…
Excellent. Funny and serious. Thought provoking and entertaining. She´s our performance artist. Theatrical. Wonderful.

And our friend, Julie Frey, went on stage twice as well. Singing, first a song by Martha Wainwright, and then a song she´s written recently, after her mother passed away in October.
Amazing voice, and she played the guitar too… very very good. Love her work. My singer songwriter close friend. Sensitive singing.

I had decided that since the other two would enter stage twice, then so would I. So I´d decided to sing a song. And chosen “Gratuitude” by my vocal sound healing teacher Githa Ben-David. A lullaby she wrote to her children, and that I sing to my children. I chose it as a celebration of the mothering instinct, the feminine principle, of receiving and nourishing. Which all women have as a part of our biology or DNA, whether we have given birth to children or not.

Here is the video of me singing “Gratitude”:

After our 6 stunts on stage, we drank a few beers. Maybe 20 people came to take part in this event. That´s great. It´s about quality not quantity for me. And 20 people on a Thursday night in that location, for this type of event, is actually quite many for our little island.

Next year we have booked the community building! It´s a Friday, 8/3 next year. We will make a party, for both kids and adults alike, ending up in a dance party. YEEESSS.

My singing was not perfect. But this world needs rolemodels that dare to stand up and say, I will share this, I will be imperfect, and that´s okay, coz human beings are not perfect and should not strive to become so either.

The audience were moved by the song, they said. I can see that it was a brave thing to do. I didn´t know whether my voice would be calm or would shake, until the moment I started singing into the mike…! 🙂

I´m glad I did it, and I look forward to doing more stage stuff.
I enjoy it.

Ps The heading photo of me, is shot by Anne Jensen Zeuthen. Thanx for that, Anne! Much appreciated! 🙂 And it´s Julie Frey who filmed me with my phone.
Thanx, Julie!

Toodle-pip! Seize ya later, gators!

My February Hibernation

Facebook
rssyoutube

 

Hello. From my straw thatched little home in the Sibirian storm. Our ferry only sails at tide these last 4-5 days, as the water has turned into ice. Wind bites one´s cheeks the moment one steps outside. So I avoid that. And spend the days under my duvet in bed, with my laptop and snapchat, having long threeway conversations in form of video monologues with to close girlfriends I have in Norway.

I dream of going on a retreat in the Himalayas. Copying wise text, meals served, meditation and contemplation. Without the circumstances present to do such a thing, I form my own form here, watching spiritual films, finding free meditations of hemi-sync and feminine astrology full moon meditation… Travel through my headset into those inner retreat waters…

I just watched a videotalk on tantra by Paul Muller. So I checked out his bluethroat yoga on youtube. Found this:

My February has also consisted of 3 special social gatherings. First a long weekend in my Norwegian girlfriend´s home. Together with four more of our common girlfriends. 6 of us. First time we ever spent days together under the same roof. Though I have lived together with one of them for a year or so… It was just. SO so nurturing? Just being relaxed and joking about, being understood, having serious personal conversations, thn dancing to the anthems from the dancefloors of the 90s… eating another meal, getting drunk, dancing more… wow. wow. wow.
It really truely strengthened me so much. To feel I am part of a tribe, somehow. People like myself. Who get me. And know me from my student days, my twenties. It really expanded my … roots … ?

Then, two weeks later, I met up with fellow sound healers, for a workshop ending in a sound healing session in a small stone church! We were four. Two of them I had never met before. Slept in one of them´s house. Such a wonderful both workshop and “concert” with intuitive singing, and teaching Githa´s “the note from heaven”. I recorded the sound, and took still photos. I´m editing it and going to put it on Youtube. I will share it with you once it´s ready.

One week after that, I had asked my husband to take the kids and thye could go somewhere over night so I could invite friends over for a birthday party. Which he immediately agreed to, with a big smile. He is amazing at supporting me in what I feel like doing for myself. Deeply appreciate his support and acceptance.

So I invited 11 people. First time I held a party in the soon 11 years I´ve lived here! Because we´ve had young children all this time. Well. I prepared stuff for tortillas, humous, bean stew, fried chicken, fried squash and mushrooms… chopped vegetables, salsa, garlic creme fraiche… you know.
And then two guests brought cake. And I played cds, and in the guest room I played vinyls, and we danced.

A wonderful gathering of authentic individuals, all capable of listening to eachother. Very nive atmosphere.
I drank too much. Alas. Not getting sick, but. Mixing beer, wine and then the gin and tonic. I think it was just one of them I had. I must learn now that it doesn´t fit my brain. I get blackouts and remember only glimpses. So annoying!! So I shall stop the mixing. If I want to drink gt, it will be that and only that. And not too many of course. Beer is best for me. Then I can enjoy amounts of liquid, without losing control of intoxication level, all of a sudden being a lot more drunk than I had planned to be…

Anyways. Hopefully this 46. year will be the year where I realize my limitations when it comes to alcohol consumption.

So this February Hibernation Space has been both outward going and inward going. Plane to Norway, strengthening bonds of sisterfriendships or what to call it. Car to unknown address on Fyn, being in sound in a group of 4 and then bringing it to an audience… and then home alone, inviting chosen individuals, just a few so there was room for every single person to be met properly by everybody else present.

And then this Siberian Storm. Forcing me to stay indoors almost a week, feeding my soul. As the full moon is in pisces, so how perfect it is to have been in increased meditation frequency… (I´m a piscean as well…)

Let me see if I can find a good astro weatherforecast talk for us, hang on. Oh yes, I love this man here:

I have been in a crises as well. Very furious… It is resolved now. I´m not going into this here and now. Maybe an other time. But even I do have private chambers. Just because I´m very open and personal about things, doesn´t mean that I keep nothing private. Spring cleaning, Timothy says here. “Unease, dissatisfaction. Calling our awareness to make changes.” Yup. Got the t-shirt. 🙂

Let me share a couple more inspiring videos, and then I shall lay myself a tarot, I think. Bought this new amazing deck on my trip to Norway. “The psychic tarot of the heart” by John Holland. Oh my Goodness.
I have a few decks. Have used tarot since… my twenties. This deck here, I feel is only for me! I will not use it to give others readings. This thought to me, is a completely fresh one. I share. But this one here. Only for me.

Probably a healthy thing. I don´t care. It´s just a very strong feeling I have. And so I listen to my heart. As always.

Check it out online if you are curious. Simply amazing, both visually and text wise. Oh, let me actually see if I can find a photo of it, hang on. (Hahaha… as if this is a radio show or phonecall. But. Hang on anyways)!

Yeah. All pictures are there, so just go cruise and enjoy the images… So many attractive decks to see, actually. I shall spend time to get to know this one now, before I treat myself to more decks. I also bought an oracle deck by Kyle Grey. Also exciting. Lots of learning to receive from that one.

Okay. Back to those videos I talked about. Here´s one by Abraham Hicks. Where we can see Esther. This is just a random video, I haven´t even seen it yet. I have watched/listened to several hundred of the Hicks videos on youtube these last 2-3 years. So I know for sure that whatever comes from Abraham, I will agree with and feel uplifted by. Such a gift for me to have this source of inspiration. Very grateful.

Another “friend of mine” though we´ve never met (to my knowledge, this present lifetime), is Wayne Dyer. Read many of his books, watched his film the Shift, and watched him on youtube… Here´s a guided meditation. Actually he uses the sound AAAAAH…. just like I have learnt from Githa, to allow Light through, to silence the channel or. Which words to use. Wayne mixes the sound with affirmations here. I shall try this one. Every morning? With 3 kids, that´s a bit unrealistic. But Let me give it a go. Right now, it could possibly be doable every morning when I arrive home from delivering the youngest in kindergarten.

Right. Very enjoyable to sit here in bed and type away about my February Hibernation.
I´m curious and excited to see what March holds in store for me. Hopefully still lots of pockets of time for me to focus inward. And to keep developing my social circle of local individuals who fit into my tribe of listening, compassionate, authentic being.
Actually on 8. of March I´m participating in the first Women´s Justice Day (What is it called in English?), I shall read out a poem that came to me 02 am the other night. Woke up and wrote it down. As I often do. Quite a fantastic piece, I love it. And don´t claim to have any honour in creating it, I just allowed it to come through me.
Also, 13. of March I´m participating in the start of local group of the green party. “Alternativet Fanø”. As you may know from previous posts, we got into the town council with one mandate, and took the seat of the mayor! So this is a very… exciting, new position we´ve landed in, and I´m eager and enthused about building this movement stronger.

Further, March stores my son´s 6.birthday. A weekend in a summerhouse with my husband’s bigband, 17 musicians and their partners and children. Truely wonderful people. Party band, plays cover versions of hits from 60s-80s. Three singers, brassline… that´s gonna be one big happy family dance party, I expect. (We´ve traveled with the band to Florida in 08 and to Spain in 14, so. I know what I´m talking about here). 🙂

A week after that trip, we actually go to Berlin for easter. Staying in UFA Fabrik. An old factory that has been turned into an alternative township or. Yeah. Hitler´s old cinema is there. Still functioning as cinema. That thrills me. As the nazis, in all their horror alien like evil, understood some things about the power of film, before others did. And used it for evil. Of course. But. Yeah. To go there and experience that space will be specil to me. Love that the place now is run as a kind of hippie community, with their own school, no cars, a bakery, a guesthouse, farm animals, tons of creative workshops…

So. March will give a heap of social gatherings, I realize. And I shall make sure I also find time to go within. And digest all the new impressions. I feel this is a time for the right people to get together, hook up and be connected. Don´t know why I feel that. But I often understand these kinds of feelings in retrospect.

Anyways. Let me finish with a kool song, then.

In coming Source

Hahaha…. source of income. In coming Source.

And that mirrored concept there is actually the whole meaning and point I thought of writing about here now. Only I was searching for the words of description, and played around with the title / headline…

I am feeling the shift. As “they” call it. Our DNA developing into 5 dimensional beings. So they claim. Me, I just keep an open mind. Universe is endless. Who am I to say some things are impossible? That would be rather a stupid claim to make. In my view.

I´m… working on alignment. Inner vibration, to match attraction of the things I want and need. So I spend a fair amount of time listening. To guided meditations, webinars, self hypnosis, spiritual tv series about… chakras and the pineal gland and kundalini and today I discovered Hemi-sync! ….. Jonathan Goldman´s sound healing video series, Hay House emails… It´s pouring in, and I am really loving it immensely. I love to learn. In between I feel I am being lazy, but. I´m not. So. All is good. I´m just enjoying taking new knowledge into my system.

Got headhunted for some translation of document from Danish into Norwegian. That was fun. I´m wondering what´s next. I´d like to invest in a hypnosis course in London with Marisa Peer. A lot of money, but that would be earnt back in short while. IF it makes me as confident and competent as I expect it will.

Had an a-ha-moment today, truely. I spent an hour on a great webinar, about how to make a succesful online business out of wrapping up and selling info about something I´m passionate about. At the end of the hour, there was an almost irresistable offer. My account is rather empty right now, though. So I decided I can´t buy right now.

As soon as I left that page, an other page appeared. A lady¨s newsletter, whome I can´t remember having signed up for. (I have a few of those, I accept free offers of guided meditations, f.ex. and forget all about it…) Well. She explained about hemi-sync, and she hosts workshops in her own home, 3-5 people. And I noticed how this pulled me in, a lot more temptingly than the online biz course did.

I realized that, although the online course no doubt is extremely useful, I have no doubts about that. I would still have to use the bought material and teach myself the contents by use of 19 hours´video training… Whilst going to the lady´s workshop… is a real life learning experience. And about going within, working with one´s own consciousness levels. (Theta waves; out of body, lucid dreaming etc). Whilst the online biz course is about how to reach out to others.

I noticed that going within, pulls me more than going outwards. Right now.

And then there is the writing. I write morning pages now. Used to earlier in life too. 3 pages each morning. Any words that come.

Today came this:

Oh. It´s written in Norwegian. Rhyming. I can´t be bothered translating that now, with rhythm and rhyme it takes a lot of time. But the essence was that my source of income, comes in from source, through writing. That I just have to sit still and listen. And I will find the money, or rather,  income will find me. That I just need to truely trust.

Scary. And comforting at the same time. What if I do manage to sit still and listen, and nothing comes through? I guess this is called fear of failure. And they say, people are even more afraid of success than failure.

I don´t know. I consider myself quite fearless actually. But interestingly enough these deeper layers I could work on at this hemisync workshop…. she talks about the afterlife as well. To do hemisync you need to accept you are more than your body. This has always been a matter of course to me. And then, follows that when I´m more than my body, I don´t die just because my body does. This too is easy for me to agree on.

Oh, how exciting….! It´s about sound, syncing the brain halves, bringing on expanded states of consciousness like deep meditation…

In come from Source. Received. Appreciated. Joyfully.

Shouldn´t this end with music? Yes it should, she replied to herself, smilingly.

“The man with the scar”

I was just at a lecture. For 2 and a half hours. With a very charismatic, warm hearted man. Called Peter Bang.

He spent 30 years of his life abusing drugs and alcohol. Grew up in violent home. Moved out after beating up his father at age 16. Was a big shot in the local night life, selling drugs, buying sportscar, speedboat and motorbike. Went to jail. Ended up on heroin to try to escape his inner emotional turmoil. Lost all his money and became homeless. Got the right to treatment in the end, after seeing his girlfriend and closest friends die around him.
Now been clean 5 years, and he helps reach out to young drug abusers whome “the system can´t get through to.”

A very moving and incredible lifestory. But. What impressed me about him was that he said: “Strength lies in the heart. I used to think it was about muscles, being good at fighting. But I was wrong. Being vulnerable, daring to stand by myself and show openly that I am a human being who makes mistakes, and who gets hurt… that is what strength is.”

He said he speaks from the heart in his work, building trust with patience and honesty, and that he can read people, whether their words fit with their eyes. He can feel it when people lie.

He said he always used to feel wrong, like he didn´t fit in, didn´t belong. And alcohol and drugs made him lose inhibitions, not be shy, made him feel on top of the world.

Loneliness.

“I couldn´t be inside myself”, he said. So many bad emotions, of guilt and shame. Self blame. In his childhood he was not allowed to show emotions, had to deal with them alone, in his room.

Escape. Numbness. Trying to avoid hurting. To avoid caring.

I learnt a lot today. Not least, how we need adult men to stand up and talk about what a real man is. That a real man cries, and that it is better to act from a peaceful heart than to act instantaneously on one´s thoughts and actions. That one has a choice, to remain positive, when attacked.

He has a page on Facebook where he shares his thoughts. “Manden med arret”. It´s called. I´m keeping an eye on this guy. Deeply inspiring. Very grateful.

Right. So. What´s this gonna be about? I feel this urge to write and here I am, digital notepad on my lap, asking it why I´m here…

Hahaha…

Let me just start out with one of my favourite songs, then:

 

I´d love to hear him in concert some time…

Here´s a poet I´ll lend an ear to anytime… :

Here´s one of his pieces, now we´re at it:

Haha, hadn´t heard that one before. Magical. He´s a productive man. Love it.

I saw this film of Krisna Das the other day…. him telling his own story. I always loved autobiographies. Let me see if there is a piece by him to be found on youtube.

Sources of inspiration…. In spiré… Breathing in Spirit…

I have so many muses. As I wrote decades ago;
I wanna live my life
Enthused, amazed and amused…

I just discovered Alan Walker. He´s (?) from Bergen!(My home town in Norway). And a global star already, if I understood that correctly. His (?) videos actually move me to tears…
Check this out:

One more:

Love his (?) lyrics. There´s a ghost inside me, and it belongs to the other side…

I´ll end this post here. Fair and square. So there. Take care! 🙂

Pre Dawn

Facebook
rssyoutube

I wrote this piece early this morning, directly as a facebook status. Woke up 04:44, wide awake, wanting to write. I may edit a bit more later. Not sure whether the title is final either. But. Probably is.
It´s got a peculiar rhtythm to it. I will play with voicing it, record it and find the right rhythmic flow for it.
Here u go, written version round one:

 

Pre Dawn 

When I wake from a dream with a happy urge to write.
To join in the silence to hear the inner light.
Whispers of quiet, foggy measures slowly turning into sight.
These are moments when I more than most feel vividly alive.

Words they carry meanings to and fro.
Clumsily yet quietly efficient also.
Between our heads, and at its best, between our hearts.
Passion is the fashion, open truely to your beat to find a start.

Humourous interventions are a must.
Digestion is such ease when dish induces appetite or lust.
Why so serious these few short years you’re here?
Replace the fear with care and have a good time with

the ones who dare.

Laugh and play, make jokes, and sing and dance!
Feel- good-factors that give u the perfect chance,
to be uplifted, elevated, glad.
Expressing oneself freely, makes a lot of stuff seem not so bad.

Sensitive to depth and width of sensory impressions,
vulnerable is strength, becomes the underwhelming lesson.
Protect oneself, withdraw and charge again,
refuse to live like told by shallow, hasting, angry little men.

Bottomline is coming up here now:
Please do move the focus in your life from what to how.
The way u do the things u do, the way you are.
Is what shines your dust, my darling being, be aware that u are made from star.

So rest, relax, enjoy and visualize.
Allow your belly laugh and sobbing cries.
Grab life with both your hands and hold on tight.
Reflection gives correction, on you flow, ever so feather light.

Lkh 6/2-18
