Good morning, dear blog-readers of mine. 🙂

It´s 07 Sunday morning here now, on this little Danish island. Autumn holiday started Friday. So why awake this early? I´m a B + person, enjoying long sleep-in mornings and long, creative nights with teacups… But. I went to bed 9 pm. So I´ve had 10 hours of sleep. Hence gettting up now is lovely. House quiet, all the holiday people sound asleep for another couple of hours. Alone-time for mama. Precious. 🙂

I wanted to share with you a movie from Gaia.com. One can share film links for free with friends, 3 times every month. Yet the link said it´s expired. Hmmm. It is a film about Highly Sensitive Persons, featuring Alanis Morisette and the author and inventor of the concept; Elaine D. Aron. Wonderful film… Let me see if it´s on youtube, you never know, you know.

My Goodness, YES it IS !!! Here:

You MUST watch this. One in five of us, they estimate, is born highly sensitive. I am one of them. In Elaine D. Aron´s book, called “Highly Sensitive Person” (HSP) there is a lengthy personality test one can take. I did, and I cried my eyes out, as it perfectly described my childhood, feeling different,  alone,  misunderstood.

20% of us!!! So if you are not HSP yourself, your spouse, your child or your friend might be. And they need you to understand them.

Like I said, I saw the film on Gaia.com

I pay a low fair monthly, and that´s the tv I watch. Nothing else. Apart from youtube and Facebook. Basically. On Gaia they have collected spiritual films and tv series. About the unanswered questions we have in life. Mysteries of pyramids and geometry, research into whether aliens have been captured on earth, but to me it´s the films like the one just shared, that grab my attention. And about kundalini, chakras, energy healing, sound healing, mediumship, channeling, documentaries about amongst others Krisna Das, Madam Blavatski, and Yogananda… So when I´m exhausted, my favourite thing is to curl up in bed with my laptop and watch something on Gaia. 🙂

Friday my course in VBS – Visionary Business School – ended. Or. It was the final live q and a – call from Ryan in San Diego. Where all of us 500 students can raise our hand by pressing a button on the screen, and he will coach us 1 on 1, whilst all of us listen…. I never raised my hand, though. I don´t have a business yet, and hence others need the coaching more than I do. I have lifetime access to the course, which contains A LOT of material. So I shall keep studying, in my own pace. Ryan Eliason has my deep gratitude for this course he´s made. Teaching me to look at marketing as a part of being of service. And teaching me most importantly, that business doesn´t have to be a place of competition, greed, manipulation and cynicism, but can be heart based, honest, friendly, co operative and empathic, gentle. Business can be built as a “win win win” (my word, invented NOW. 🙂 ) Where I can make money on providing value to equal citizens, at the same time uplifting our shared ecosystem / human consciousness.

Other than that, I have been headhunted into a company that sells high quality natural remedies for the body. I pay attention when things walk into my life, as I have asked  Source to help me find income. I will try to use these products to practice selling with my heart. Providing valuable information and being unattached to whether the prospect (possible customer) wants to purchase or not. I just want them to have information. The decision is theirs only. And they will decide when they feel ready to do so, not pushed by me.

Other than that, I´m translating from Danish into Norwegian for a Danish ticket system company. Work from home, well paid. Wonderful! And I love to write. Translating between the two languages also teaches me this and that about Danish that I didn´t know. So. I appreciate this job.

Other than that, I´m involved in rewriting the local politics on the culture-sparetime-sports field. Meaning attaining meetings with the council and other volunteers in the local ngos.

And I´m going to organize a big conference, presenting local culture, September 2020. With one local ngo, I´m the leader of. We will start having meetings about this project soon. It seems far into the future, but. It will take a lot of planning. I want the process to be enjoyable. Love brainstorming. And to do something good for my community.

Other than that… Oh yes, a friend of mine is researching into creating a rather exciting concept… if it pulls through, I will be a part of that. Which is quite a big thing. That I can´t tell you about yet. 🙂

Other than all this going on, I still have my 3 little school kids and all their homework, and spare time transport, to take care of. Cooking, shopping, cleaning house and clothes. I wish I had the money  to have an au pair. A nice person who could just help me tidy up and clean the house. That would have been a great help. I tend to not prioritize dusting and cleaning the floors…  Like an adult extra daughter. But then I would need a bigger house too, there is no room here where she could stay. And also, of course, I don´t have the money to pay her either. But. It would have been lovely. Housework is important, and I am not good at getting it done the way it should.

Other than all this, I´m also still the leader of the local green party. We have the mayor, so we need to support her in her work. Meaning a lot of meetings, and keeping an eye on local media, updating our facebook page, our debating group etc. I love this work. Our mayor fellow party member, is competent, authentic, and has integrity. A true joy to co operate with her.

So…. you can see why it is I don´t update this blog as often as I used to. But I will always return, and hopefully life will be less busy in times ahead…. I think I will build myself an online space for healing. Or therapy. For selling information products and services. I´m in the process of finding out what it will take, with the VBS material. On the 5.of December I have a meeting with a Danish guy in Copenhagen, whose course I also bought, about making online courses. So I shall have some good questions ready for him at that date, I´ve decided.

I hope to get more time to write. Morning pages, poems and songs. As well as online courses and blogposts. I think it will all come the way it is supposed to. I accept life as it comes. And I know I´m always lucky. 🙂 Mindset work and affirmations. Love that stuff!

This post became a bit word heavy, didn´t it. We need a song or something, hang on…

I love this song. Especially the lyrics from the prayer of Frans of Assissi, isn´t it? I put this song on high volume in the stereo in the bathroom and sing it in the shower! Haha… Very uplifting and empowering. To a weird and wonderful being like me. 🙂 I gave birth to one of Snatam Kaur´s songs: Mul Mantra. At home, in water. Sweet memories.

(The title of this blogpost is taken from this song´s lyrics. An instrument of Spirit´s Peace. Is what I see myself as being. A lightworker. Helping increase inner and outer peace).

I think with this I will love you and leave you. Hope to connect with you again soon. If you want to follow what I share more frequently, you are welcome to send me a friend request on Facebook. My name is Lene Kaltwasser Henriksen. I also have a fb page for my vocal sound healing: Kaltwasser Vocal Sound Therapy. And I have a page called Kaltwasser Soul Healing Circle. And a fb page for my blogposts as well, where I share my new posts, then it´s easier to know when there is news happening on kaltwasser.dk. The blog´s facebookpage is called Kaltwasser Heart Matters.

Take it easy & take care! Let me tune out with a tune. I love this woman here. Saw her live a month ago and bought her cd, which I listen to all the time. This is the title track of the really good album Enjoy!

Ciao for now!

Sunday early morning. Sun is getting up, my bedroom is becoming lighter by the minute here now.

Not sure what to write about yet, just feel I should update the blog, it´s been a while…

School has started, and with 3 schoolkids it´s plenty busy, parents´ meetings with each class etc. Right now my eldest (14) is on her way to Legoland with her class and a visiting school class from Italy! Since yesterday, we have an extra child in the house, sweet Italian girl, until Thursday. She speaks good English, so that´s great.

I´m still in Visionary Business School online, module 10 now out of 12. Life time access, so I´m not in a rush, but soon the live connection with the teacher will be finished and I will be left to myself, and our students´ facebookgroup. I feel a bit overwhelmed by the course. Such a lot of info. About time management, client enrollment and inner game. Being the change, aquiring the mindset needed to get up and make an online teaching space. It takes a lot of courage, and technical setup, as well as creativity to make the infoproducts for sale, packaging them in a good way, then there´s marketing…

We will see. It still attracts me. And if I can build the system, it is a really good investment of my time, as I can build on from there and be anywhere in the world, my workplace being inside my laptop…

On the other side, I´m going on a retreat soon! One week. First time I will try that. It is with my sound healing teacher Githa Ben-David and her husband Lars Muhl. About 50 of us, in the countryside by a lake. Practicing sound healing, meditation, having lectures… from early morning and all day. I have never been away from my kids for a whole week before. But I know this week will strengthen me A LOT. I just know this. I will be supported in my core. Put it that way. So.

Here is a film about my teacher Githa:

Other than this, I have my green party meetings to go to, and my 3 other ngos to meet up with and organize different things, sending emails… And there´s actually also two old friends who have approached me, offering me a business opportunity! Out of the blue. So I will see what these offers may lead to… I have registred my company now. And I´m doing freelance translation work from Danish into Norwegian. Busy-ness is my middle name! Busy busy.

I will juggle all these balls and then put some of them in the ground to root, whilst others I will just let go of. Time will tell.

Yaaawwwnnn…. I fell asleep, watching the psychic medium John Holland in a youtube video. Love that guy. Makes nice tarot decks too.

Just received an sms from a fellow parent in my 8-yearold´s class, reminding me to send out invitations for the halloween dinner we have planned for the class, including parents and siblings…

I think I´ve gotta go downstairs and make myself some strong coffee.

Let´s tune out of this earthy to do list- alike blogpost with a song…

Oh, look what I stumbled upon in my search for “happy song”, seems you get a book tip from Oprah this Sunday morning too! And wisdom from wonderful author Gary Zukav! 🙂

Right. Found this old friend in a list called happy / motivational songs. Shake it! 🙂

Have an ace Sunday. I´ll be back soon as I have da time, yo. Remember to go into my blog archives, there´s plenty of stuff I´ve already written that u can enjoy. Take care now. High five from me here on isle of Fanoe, Denmark.

Thoughts on schooling

Facebook
rssyoutube

Dear reader.

It´s Friday, end of the first week of school after the Summer holiday. Now all my three kids go to school, my youngest son is 6 and enrolled Tuesday. He is very happy. So all is well. Apart from getting up at 06.30 am every morning. It´s just not me!

The school hours are set so they work well for the old factory workers´ start of work early in the morning. And science now says that kids, especially teens, need to sleep later in the morning, to be able to learn properly. And they say that “B-people” (Scandinavian term for … sleep rhythm … “A-people” wake up early, fresh, and go to bed early. And “B-people” are more fresh in the evening, and sleep longer.) Well, science now says that B-people are the ones with the more natural daylight rhythm… Don´t ask me to explain why, I just remember the headline. Made me feel good. As a B-person, I´ve always fest second to the A. Haha…

Anyways. Let´s google it. And let´s hope the schools will adapt to the scientific facts sooner rather than later.

In my view, school should also change the things they teach. Instead of history of wars, teach them history of women, of equality, of prison, of racism. Of power.

Teach them psychology, about emotions and how to deal with them, about what identity is. Teach them self understanding, and social anthropology; to understand and respect diversity…

Teach them empathy. For crying out loud. Teach them about creativity and innovation. Brainstorming, mindmapping. Teach them music and drama, painting and dance. Teach them to express themselves and to love. Themselves. So they in turn can offer love to their surroundings.

Teach them co operation and breathing exercises. Tools to reduce stress levels. Ways to communicate wiser. Goal setting. And how to deal with their inner critic. Teach them loyalty. How to be a real friend. How to build and strengthen relationships. And to honor themselves and their inner borders, to stand up for themselves, and for others whome they can see need support.

Yeah.

This is a photo of my son taken in May. In his new hoodie, birthday present from my sister. I will do my best to make sure he feels as resolved and relaxed in five years from now. We all survive our school years, but. They are also tough. For everyone. I´m keeping a keen eye on my kids throughout these school years, working to keep and build trust between us, so they will come and tell me when things get hard, emotionally, for them. I see this as one of the most important tasks I have as a mother. Emotional support.

Other than the kids have started school (again), I too have enrolled. Into this web course I have written about earlier. Visionary business school. With Ryan Eliason.
It is… very… big…? A lot of stuff to learn. Mindset to work on. Inner barriers to break. Very exciting. Sometimes scary. But I do still know that it is the right place for me to focus energy right now. So.

I´m also waiting to receive more translation work, from Danish to Norwegian, the company I worked for in the winter/spring. Which is wonderful, lets me earn money whilst I study this fall.
Earn, so I can pay the course fee! And also, a retreat I´ve signed up for, a whole week in October/November. Masterclass with my teacher in vocal sound therapy, Githa Ben-David.

I´ve never been away from the kids for a whole week before! But I think it´s a fine challenge for us. And my husband has no hesitations, either, so. They will have fun without me, and we´ll get to miss eachother. Whilst I go 100% into “learning and inner growth mode” for a whole week!! It will be very good for me.
I miss my teacher. And this will allow me to catch up with the new things she´s discovered since my exam, december 2015.

Here is a film about her, in English. Made by her husband. Himself also a mystic, author, scholar, teacher.

Anyways. Just a quick hello today, from me. I need to get some breakfast, it´s 12.33 pm!

Big hug! Have a great weekend!

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

In coming Source

Facebook

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.

A Media using Medium Me

Facebook
rssyoutube

I actually love to feel so tired that I fall fast asleep at 9.30 pm. Only thing is, i tend to then wake up at midnight feeling it´s morning. Not that it´s a problem. I enjoy being awake in the vast quietness of the night. Reading or writing. Or watching something on my laptop.

I joined Gaia.com two days ago. Been wanting to for a while, but it´s not free, so I´ve been hesitating. But two days ago I just felt dedicated, so I joined, and wow. Access to a big selection of films. Spiritual films, or. Stuff about the brain, ufos, healthy eating, fractals and yantras, just tons of the kind of stuff I love to watch and learn.

www.gaia.com

We´ve stopped the cable tv package this year. Costs a fortune. And we hardly ever watch tv, really. Time to stream instead. The kids channels are on apps. Dr. Phil must be findable online, as is Long Island Medium. And a bit of soccer for daddy-o.

New times. Dvds; our house is filled with good dvds, but we hardly ever watch them now, as we have Viaplayl. Which is a bit saddening, coz I´ve invested a fortune in high quality kids movies especially. They used to watch their favourite films again and again, and it was ok with me as it was really good cultural texts I didn´t mind them learning by heart. Astrid Lindgren, f.ex. And Miyazaki´s films. Norwegian classics from my own childhood. Mary Poppins. E.T. The Neverending Story. Barbapapa. And so forth.

Been years now, since I watched a good tv series. My favourite ever, is “6 feet under”. Michael Ball, was that his name? HBO. I should check out what´s new in that area. I used to really enjoy a good series. Especially watching together with a good friend who would drop by with a bottle or an ounce, and a bag of crisps…

These days my main use of media, is by far Facebook. A bit of Instagram, a bit of Snapchat. But Facebook. Is a place where I do spend time. I studied media science in uni. And anthropology, and organizational psychology, and comparative politics. The arena of Facebook for narratives and meaning making… to me it is extremely interesting. To see groups form. Over shared interest. Such as criticism towards a political trend. Conversations being created between people who don´t know eachother, maybe they have a friend in common, and meet in a thread openly sharing experiences of mourning, or of parenting… I always wanted to make poster campaigns. Facebook gave me an eternal poster wall.

Music. One of the corner stones of my life, really. I used to buy new albums all the time, spend Saturday afternoons in record stores, listening to big wads of records before deciding on which ones to take home… Played a lot of cds and minidiscs at home. Discovered new music. Went out dancing a LOT. (Pre motherhood days).

Now… I play old cds from time to time. Minidiscs in my garden hut. But same old same old. My husband is a musician, and makes a lot of …noise, haha… no. He plays guitar and piano a lot. So that fills the ether. Plus living 5 people together. Makes the need for sound… vacant. I also use sound in my therapeutic work, when I “sing on people”.

I´d like to get myself a radio, though. Isn´t there still an interesting station out there? I worked at a radio station for 2 years. These days I´m quite impatient with young people who sound like they just want to hear their own voice. I guess maybe I was just as annoying to someone listening, when I was a radio host… !

Podcasts. Want to check that out too. Have listened to a handful good ones.

But I enjoy video more, maybe. Or just listening to talks. Ted talks. Youtube. Abraham Hicks. Guided meditations. Self hypnosis.

I would like to switch focus. From taking in impressions, to making more expressions. Dance more. Write. Sing.

I dream of creating a playlist of great songs. To dance to, and to feel good listening to. Once I have 3 hours of great vintage reggae, world music, pop and rock anthems etc. Then I want to make a 3 hour long visual piece to go with it. And then I want to take these pieces to a dancefloor nearby and invite all my friends to come party with me!

I also want to make more songs myself, and make an album.

And another book or two. Send to a publisher, I think. As the book I self published in 11… I tend to give it away to people. Which is nice of me. (!) But. I need to start making some money now. Somehow.

I´m in the middle of a film on Gaia right now, called “Choice Point”. Inspiring. Says there are times in one´s life where one stands between what Robert Frost called “two roads diverged in the woods.” In between. Neither nor – status. Open. Options.

I feel I´m in such a place right now. I just finished a very succesful election campaign. My party´s head candidate is now the mayor (!). I am… floating mid air somewhere, waiting to see where my feet land. We´re gonna build this party. I´m gonna be having some functions and responsibilities. And influence over some issues that matter to me. At the same time, I´m building my clinic, receiving sound clients. And I would like to write books and make dance parties.

🙂

I went to a ciromantic in 2005. A good one. Palm reader. He told me “why don´t you just write? You have the skills. Let that be your priority. That, and mothering.” He also said: “One of your main goals this lifetime, is to develope trust. In Spirit. To rest assured, knowing that you are taken care of. It´s as if they are saying, just do your thing, from within, and we´ll support you, get you headhunted, or fix you some money when needed…”

So. I live by that. Actually. Trust in Spirit. As when he said that, it rang bells inside of me. Recognition of truth. So many times has my life just taken a 90 degree turn in strange directions. Guided by my heart. From finish line to start. Full circle non stop. Growing round and round and up.

Reminds me of one of my favourite songs. From 1967. What a year for music that was! Wish I had been born then. Or maybe I was there, then overdosed or flew off a rooftop on acid or something. To be incarnated again in 1972. Who knows? Not I. (This could be an opening scene in one of the episodes of 6 feet under, haha…)

Magical wonder. Beyond the yonder. Help me rise, help me land softly and blissfully on my flat, lucky footsoles. Show me the doors, the path to choose, the loopholes.

Amen.

And so it is.

I guess the headline for this post will be something “media use”… I had a one man company once. Called “Kaltwasser Media Freelance”. Wanted to use it for my jobs in the film making industry in Bergen. But then I realized I would not have the right to dole money in between projects. So I deleted the company. These days I´m thinking to make a company again. If I am to go serious about the vocal sound therapy. Media freelance can also cover mediumship tasks.

I consider myself a medium. A channel. For light & love, Higher Self.

I dream of further education in this field as well. My old teacher of mediumship, English Val Williams, the spiritist priest based in the UK. There is this old Harry Potter-ish castle, where she and others do all kinds of mediumistic courses. Trance mediumship, f.ex. Or Inspired Speech. I really want to go spend a week or two there.

Yeah. Money Honey. And plenty of Time. Thank you PlentyVerse for multiplying greatness in my life.

Wei Wu Wei (taoism; action of non action)

The attitude of gratitude
Is the way to go
Don´t worry be happy
Make your passion glow
Focus on the Good and True
Practice sitting silent
Listen to the inner will
So soft and smooth, unviolent.

Renewal Time

I just finished listening to a webinar online. With Rasmus Lindgren; “How to build a succesful online business and make money on your passion.”

I love to learn. I´ve listened to a few webinars lately, with a similar heading to the one I did today. Here´s today´s kitchen corner classroom… 🙂

It´s actually a new bench as well, we found it on a local secondhand facebook group, and went and checked it oout, and got it delivered yesterday. Isn´t it cute?! Perfect for our small space, and it´s even a Norwegian piece of furniture as the previous owner works in Norway!

Anyways.
Webinars, yes. Learning.
I´m in an avalanche of this stuff right now. Or. Maybe a bad choice of words, as I do enjoy it. It´s not overwhelming me. There´s just a lot of information sources, suddenly.
Which I myself have chosen to allow into my life, of course.

I´m doing Mind Movies, for example! Which is a tool for visualization that I invested in. Not a lot. 50 dollars for a year´s access, including several courses in how to get more done in less time etc. Phew. Exhausting title! Haha…

I´m also still doing John Assaraf´s self hypnosis audios. “Winning the game of money”.
And I´m waiting for a book to arrive in my mailbox, about “the millionaire mindset” as well, by Dean something.

I´m doing this internal renovation, looking at my thought patterns and changing dysfunctional ones for more beneficial ones… Whilst in my outer every day life, I´m busy renovating my home, getting hold of a new bed, new kitchen furniture, building Ikea stuff… sorting through my wardrobe and the 3 kids´wardrobes, driving what is too small, to a local recycling store…turning a bedroom into a clinic space…

Hmmm… I just went to check whether I have uploaded my self made mind movie to youtube yet. I haven´t. I will share it with you once I have. It´s a selection of words, images and video, with added upbeat soundtrack, meant to help me increase my vibration / lift my mood up, so as to align to the vibration of what I want to attract into my life!
Sounds like Greek gobbledee-gook? Well. Oprah is into it, so are all her top notch celebrity guests. Here´s a video of her and great author Wayne Dyer, talking about it:

And of course, the main voice in this area of knowledge. At least contemporarily;
is Abraham. Coming through Esther Hicks. Here she is interviewed by Oprah (But I have watched hundreds of videos from Esther´s Abraham seminars. I´m only using this interview with Oprah because it´s right underneath the one with Wayne Dyer. Plus, we are many who trust in Oprah´s judgment. For good reasons).

Here is one where you can see Esther, doing her usual work. Sound is also a lot better than the one with Oprah above here.

Search for yourself, though, if you are interested. Abraham Hicks is always uplifting, loving, optimistic, positive, humorous and…. yeah. So healing, actually. At least to me. And apparently to many others too, judging from her sold out seminars, about 50 of them each year… (And yes, to attend her seminar, IS on my vision board, of course it is)! 🙂

Anyways. Yes. I´m learning stuff now. And renovating in the outer and in the inner landscapes.

Plus I have my sound therapy clients. Which I love. Giving sound sessions is like meditation to me. First and foremost I´m at the service of Spirit. And it is so great to see how much the sound helps people, how relaxed they become, at ease…

I´m looking for ways to earn a good living, without compromising my wellbeing. I want to earn money on doing things that I love to do.
Which is sound therapy, giving hypnosis (though I need to practice that skill more first), writing, talking with people about how to deal with the challenges of life.

So.
In a year, when my youngest child starts his school years and more of my time is freed… then I want to start earning serious income, and let my husband who is a decade older than myself, start to decrease his work hours.
That is my goal.

Oh. I have to stop here and go pick Linus-Ferdinand up from kindergarten. It´s a quarter to one.

Seize ya later, ´gator!
Don´t be vile, crocodile.

vibe attracts tribe

I just got back home from a big birthdayparty in Faxe outside of Copenhagen. A three and a half hours’ drive from home. Dorte turned 60, she is the wife of one of my husband’s best mates from childhood. It was lovely to meet her friends and family. All such lovely individuals. Artists, musicians, writers, architects and healers. Every conversation I entered into, was about something interesting and exciting! Ofcourse as in all parties, one introduces oneself and ask eachother “who are you?” And since I got myself a big wad of business cards a week ago, I used them, telling people about my educating myself into becoming a vocal sound therapist, and telling them about my blog. And it turned out that everybody I talked to, knew about my teacher Githa Ben-David and the work she does! One had used her cd for her singing practice, another had been to a course learning Indian style singing from her, a third had a recording studio where one of Githa’s students has recorded a cd of self made songs which she uses in her therapy… One conversation after the other, and each one so relevant to me, inspiring…!

One lady, she told me she had had many different jobs, from “spiritual editor” at a publisher’s, to her current job, which is to coach composers… I asked her, “but what would you then call yourself, as a gathering label of all these tasks you do?” She laughed and said, “I’m spiritual. So I just go where I get directed to go, and help people there in the way it’s needed.”

Something actually fell into place for me in that moment.
I have written so many poems and songs about not feeling at home in labeled boxes, how no profession title seems to fit me.
(Last time in the blogpost Being a poet).

The business card helps me to frame what I do. It says Kaltwasser Heart Matters on it, vocal sound therapy, educated by Githa Ben-David, and then my contact details plus the blog’s address. On the back side of it, I have written a line in the middle that I’m really quite proud of, because it manages to pinpoint all my passions at once.
It says:
Vocal Sound Therapy & Maker of Video, Songs & Poetry

And it rhymes! 🙂
I dig it.

I exchanged cards with 3-4 people yesterday. One of the ladies was an artist, doing graphics, and helping others with web design, and then she also makes jewellery out of old typewriter keys, and sells lettere, physical letters… All this was told efficiently on her business card, helping potential customers see what it is she does… a way of packaging and presenting information…that really works, and really is a helpful tool in this era where we move into a new paradigme and into the age of communication, and things are fragmented…

In the car on the way home today, it suddenly hit me.
I am a medium!
That’s what I am. That’s a label I can identify with and that covers me fully. I let stuff through from sender to receiver.
I’m a channel. For words, and sounds, and light and love from Source, or Spirit.

Often, when I write a poem, I write very fast. And only afterwards, when I read it, do I discover rhymings and rhytms in the text. Often words are used that I don’t normally use. Old fashioned ways of putting things.
Not automatic writing. But inspired writing. As it’s called.

I have after all taken 8 weekend courses at the School of Clairvoyance here on Fanø. (Described in the blogpost by the same title). Studied mediumship.
I did not feel I was to do platform work, giving messages from Spirit to an audience. I liked the one to one sittings more. But something told me to take a break. Then Githa’s books reached me, and I was ignited by them into applying for her two year long course. (Vocal sound therapy has its own category on my blog, if you want to know more about it).

So yes. A bridge, a link not missing, a connector, transmittor.
A channel. A medium. I can actually feel at home in that label.

Some use the word lightworker. But I’m not 100% sure what of the meaning of that word. I definately work for the Light, to increase consciousness, both my own and others’.
(As was also confirmed in my soundhealer inauguration, see the post with that title for more info)…

It is…. a great relief to me actually. To be able to define “what I am”, or the title of my profession.
I’m in the healing business. Using sound. And silent, written words. Connecting video images to my poems turned into songs.

Your vibe attracts your tribe.
Imagine, I too belong somewhere!
Among other communicators, transmitting strengthening energy from Source. Aiming to uplift.

It is all coming together now. Integrating within, giving me clear impressions, to express to empower.

I’m a lucky lady.

acceptance

Let me finish this talk with a song that comes to mind. She’s a mystery to me. Because I am a mystery to myself. Hahaha…
The lyrics aren’t that apt, just that one line. And I like the melody a lot. It is an optimistic one, somehow.
Happy go lucky vibe. Central to my tribe.

The Human Squirrel 1918

This is how I feel right now. After I spent yesterday with my WordPress consultant. 🙂 Very excited, hanging in mid air, holding on to my red thread of blogpost writing, surrounded by scyscrapers of Adsense, Paypal, Google Analytics, Webmaster Tools… It´s a jungle. But I have my rope. So. Hold on!

I found the picture on Flickr, in the commons section where they keep photos everyone may use for free. I searched “relief”, as that´s the feeling I have now the blog is set up for making money.
This was the first photo to come up! I liked it immediately, but had to scroll just to see that there weren´t heaps of more apt ones. But this proved to be the one and only, the perfect photo for me, it inspired me instantly, and its lying first, is funny. (Those lines rhyme, so they must be true)! 🙂

The image shows The “Human Squirrel” in Times Square, New York, ca.1918. He apparently did many daring stunts in climbing for benefit of War Relief Funds in New York City. I would have liked to meet that guy!

I was totally and completely overwhelmed yesterday, as my consultant Susanne Lund Mikkelsen set up a dropbox backup for me (via a plugin), she created RSS and Youtube buttons, a like button, and a box where one can connect to my Kaltwasser Heart Matters page on Facebook and get notifications through that page when I publish new stuff…

We looked at different themes, but decided to stick with the one I´m using…
We changed the spamfilter (sounds like a car repair) … and she made a draft for making a photo album page, which I can use to try and find my way further in the direction of mastering that… We set up a better SEO plugin than the one I had, and most importantly:

We applied Goodle Adsense and set up adverts for my blog!! They have not arrived yet, but I guess they are on their way as soon as Google is ready. Must say I am very excited to see what the adverts will look like! I know many products that I do not want to be associated with, let alone to support. Like Nestlé for example. Who steal people´s water and cause infants death in third world countries, fully knowing the damage that they do, yet ruthlessly just doing it anyways, in the name of Profits.

But my consultant tells me that the adverts will look different on different people´s screens…as the adverts will be customized to fit the person watching my site!! So…. I guess it is out of my hands, to control what products (or services?) will be advertized on my site.
Strange new world.

We have also installed a DONATION BUTTON!!!
Now that is far more exciting than the adverts. If one clicks the button, the reader can donate a sum directly to my account! Pure, direct appreciation. I don´t know if I dare believe that anyone will ever push that button. Although several people (or spam robots, I´m not sure), have commented that they would like there to be a donation button as they for sure would like to contribute to the siteowner.

I think that for every click readers make on the ads, I receive a tiny amount of cash.
And then there is the open option of that golden donation button there.

Well. Now it is set up, and I can find out whether this blog can be a source of income for me.
I can not defend spending all this time on the blog if it does not generate income. Being five people on my husband´s one wages is not… fattening… 🙂

Anyways.
I will work on the SEO. And find someone that knows whether I have to invest in Adwords. I 100% believe this blog deserves to live, and that it has an appreciative audience out there.

But I write about many things, in the kind of overlapping area between science (social anthropology and psychology), arts (film, music, poetry) and spirituality (sound healing, clairvoyance, near death experiences, meditation, zen…)

So where is that slot or that space, where I can hit or target or what it is called?
Most of the readers of this blog, come from USA. (If Count per day is right, seems to be different ways of counting visitors in different plugins)!, the second largest group is China!

I still have a long way to go before I understand WordPress and blogging.
But Susanne sure has brought me a quantum leap upwards and forwards. Great relief. GREAT relief.

Now the blog is set up to generate money. Let it drip like honey, honey.

The only way is up!
(I just LOOOVE this soooong!!!)

Morning television

Facebook
rssyoutube

I’m sitting in my sofa corner watching morning television. Have been doing a bit of that this week, as I’m so tired, and still not quite well from that easter virus the bunny brought.

Today they send directly from the 75.birthday celebration of the Danish Queen Margrethe. Interesting to a foreigner like me. She is a very popular queen. Wise and warm, and even open about her political viewpoints. Particularly about the duty of welcoming refugees who live in Denmark, that integration is a two way process. I really like her a lot.

Apart from that special event, I watch a series on hoarders. People who have gathered so much stuff/ junk that they almost can´t get into their homes anymore. Quite heartbreaking. They all seem to have started hoarding after they suffered a big loss in their lives, like the death of a life partner or parent or child… The programme is interesting, but it lacks the aspect of really helping the hoarder, to heal what caused the imbalance. There is a psychologist present in the process of tidying up, but. I would like to learn more about the illness itself, and how one can help a person with that symptom.

After Hoarders, comes Dr.Phil. Now him I do love. Always have. Some days his show is about some crime case, and so I switch off. But most times it´s about domectic violence, or other conflicts between people, often within a family… very interesting. He helps a lot of people. Both the ones who come to his show, and the ones who watch it on tv and learn that others have similar problems to myself, and they are solvable… “End the silence on domestic violence”. Is the slogan of his and his wife´s campaign. They have created an app for mobile phones, that allows victims of domestic violence to press a button that immediately starts recording the sounds in the room, plus it sends sms to friends or 911, whatever one has programmed it to do…so someone can come and interrupt the bad situation… genious.

After Dr.Phil, there´s a programme called Undercover Boss. That´s quite new to me. American show, where a boss goes under cover in his own business, disguised as a person who is taking part in a tv competition of some sorts (hence the camera crew)… he or she visits three of the shops in the chain, like a burger chain or a skiing resort with different departments… After having spent three days working on the floor in different ways, getting to know the employees as persons, and listening to their views on their workplaces… then he drops the disguise and confronts the employees. And he (or she) sits there face to face with the employees one by one and talks about what he has learnt from being undercover. The boss says stuff like “I want to give you 40.000 dollars to get your brother into a drug rehab centre”, or “I want to pay for your children going to college”, “I want to pay your debts off”, “I want you to take your husband on a nice holiday, but before you do that I will pay for you to go visit your dying mother in Italy…”
The employees break down in tears as the burdens in their lives are lifted off their shoulders.
I get moved by seeing their emotions. I feel the great relief, but I also feel sad. Because people struggle so badly out there. So few get lucky to be on Undercover Boss or Extreme Makeover… what about the millions of other people who owe hospitals several hundred thousand dollars for the med care of their husbands, who died…?

I´m glad that I live in Scandinavia. Where health care is paid for by our taxes. And university education is free. These are huge corner stones in the building of a happy life. Safety. And the right to pursue one´s dreams of a career… Land of the free? What does that mean? Free to… struggle?

This lady sounds British, but. We struggle across the board these days, don´t we. Many of us.

Lying on the sofa watching tv, makes me feel a bit down. It sucks to lie there and doze and watch and doze off again, too tired and flat to do anything else than just lie there. After four hours of it, I go and pick up my kids. When they have eaten and start playing at home, I fall asleep on the sofa for another hour again! I hope it changes soon. It´s been 2-3 weeks now!
Think about all the people with post traumatic stress syndrom, or fibermyalgia, or depression, anxiety… all the illnesses that really handicaps you and stops you from doing things. To feel desperate within to get things done, to get energy to cope with just the basics of cooking and cleaning…and you just can´t, your energy level stops you, or your inner fear and panick does…
Compared to all those people, I don´t really have a problem. In some days I will be back on my feet.
Touch wood.

Some times I wonder why I´m not just totally happy all the time. I have health, and I am educated… But all my life I have been wondering what I´m supposed to “be”, work wise… I love to write, but I don´t feel to call myself a writer… I do lots of different things, so I could say I´m an artist somehow. But I have not gone to art school. And I don´t feel at home in that label either.

My late motherinlaw, she knew from she was a child that she wanted to write books. Yet life was hard back then, and she did other random things for income, didn´t write her first book until in her 60s. She published eleven books!

So I have told myself now recently, that I must stop wondering and pondering about what I “am”, and just do what I feel like doing. Write. And practice sound therapy.

If these two activities don´t bring me an income soonish, then I will go to the dole office and sign in. Let them tell me my options. I don´t know the Danish system, maybe they have ways to deal with people like me, that are better than in Norway ten years ago, when I was last unemployed.

With my three kids, I don´t really know how I will cope with all their dentist appointments etc etc if I go to work. But. Others do. So there must be a way. I just spent 3 hours Monday and 3 hours Tuesday on taking my eldest to the dentist, you see. Bringing the two little ones with us.

Yeah. I must just get well now soon, and then pick up again the sound therapy, contact people willing to let me practice on them. And update my blog more often than I´ve been able to lately.

For now, I will try to accept the tiredness. And just rest. Maybe I can watch a dvd tomorrow instead of all those help needing people. It´s comforting to know I´m not alone in the world, feeling things aren´t always so easy. But. A good film can probably help me in a different way, make me feel uplifted or inspired, give me back some faith that it´s all gonna work out moneywise real soon.

Let me finish with a clip from one of my favourite movies. “Veronica´s two lives”.
By Krzysztof Kieslowski. A truely amazing film maker.
Not the jolliest of messengers. But. Why does it always have to be so jolly? Life is serious too. And melancholic. And these atmospheres are enjoyable in their own ways.
By the way, the sound track for this film is worth listening to as well. I have played that soundtrack on cd more times than I can count. Very poetic.

I include this interview too. With Kieslowski. I met him once at a press conference in a film festival in my hometown Haugesund in Norway. (1991?) He made quite an impression on me. Love listening to him.
