Happy new year, people!

All good? I hope so. Here good. Healthy and happy. Bit tired, but. Had a nice long holiday stretch, with plenty of rest (and tons of sugar). So. No complaints! 🙂

(Sounds like a good new year resolution, that last sentence).

I love January. It´s so quiet and… post explosion like. Peaceful, calm. We deserve rest now after christmas and new year´s celebrations are accomplished. Taken a lot of preparations. Money and work hours. Where I live, many shop owners go on holiday in January, as they work all Summer servicing our island´s many visiting tourists. This means that those of us who stay home in January, get an even more quiet January, where most shops and restaurants are actually closed until February some time.

I enjoy this. Contrast between all the visitors in the tourist season (from easter until October, and then there´s guests in the xmas holiday as well, I´ve seen this trend increasing the last few years…).

I love it when all the people come to spend holidays here. And I also love it when the streets yet again become empty and there´s lots of room in the grocery store, and everyone says hello to each other coz we know we are all just locals present right now, for the time being… 🙂

I did a major thing on the 3. of January. To me. It´s not a major thing to everybody. But to me it took weeks of thinking about whether to to it, and then a few tries before I managed to. Share, in public, the first ever video of myself talking into the camera.

I chose to make a promo video for my facebook page: Kaltwasser Vocal Sound Therapy. In the form of a give-away, so people who comment can win a sound session with me, or a copy of my book.

Look, here it is:

So what´s the big deal about posting such a video in public? Well, It´s about mindset. Choosing to stand by myself as an imperfect being, doing imperfect actions. I could shoot this video better, with a better background, better lighting, make it shorter. I could have made a presentation that started with a big smile, and where I seemed professional, well prepared, serious and…. yeah. The critical mind really takes off when I watch myself on video.

But I have decided that the winning criteria when publishing myself on video, is whether I am authentic. No pretense. Real deal. I could have wished that I had ben more relaxed in this one, and maybe presented vocal sound therapy a tad more… in depth… BUT.

I MADE IT. I DID IT. I managed to make the debut following my idea of a xmas / new year´s give-away. And hence I applaud myself. 🙂

I am planning to use video in creating information products for a future online space I plan to create. I also practice using video with this fantastic lady here, from Ireland:

She has a space on the web called Light It Up videomarketing, name is Niamh Arthur. Her free 22 day video challenge “Ignite”, really taught me a lot, and after that, I joined her course. I have worked with video actively ever since 1999… but not with myself in front of the camera. So it is nice to get her help on becoming confident enough to dare to share. I need to understand, to be conscious about the parametres of a field, before I want to claim competency. I now feel I am competent enough to know roughly what I am doing. This is good enough for me.

I will keep practicing from here and hence I will get better at both the technical stuff, the mindset stuff and my personal appearance as a trust worthy, proud and competent therapist / teacher. It’s not that I don´t feel good at what I do. I DO. It´s just a bit difficult to get up on the world wide stage and present myself as a brand, so to speak. Selling, marketing. Is a skill I don´t quite master yet. But until I do, I shall keep making lots of imperfect actions. Is my major decision.

Yeah, so. I AM moving forward. Making imperfect action, as my VBS teacher Ryan encourages us to do.

Tonight I actually have a zoom meeting with my VBS mastermind group. We are 5 fellow students, one from the Phillipines, one from Turkey, one from Colorado (/Israel), one from Montreal Canada, and myself from Denmark (/Norway). All of us wanting to move into online teaching.

Basically. It is a process that demands a lot. Of conquering fear. Our human reptile brains don´t want us to step out of the group, the pack, In the stone age this was very dangerous; to risk the public´s dislike. You would be excluded from the group and you would die. From lack of protection when ill,lack of food, and easily falling prey to wild animals. So this instinct has to be understood and then we have to act against the warnings the nervous system comes up with.

Then there´s also the more general fear of what others will think of me when I stand up in public and say “Hey, listen to this, I have something really valuable to tell you!” … One thing is the strangers watching online, but my family, and the local community when I share a video of myself on my facebook wall, visible to my neighbours, colleagues, parents of my children´s friends… This action goes completely against the law of Jante. Which says (amongst other paragraphs): “Do not believe you are better than US”   …. Like, “who do you think you are?!”

Being frowned upon, being met with sarcasm, scorn… We all know this feeling from our childhood, of being judged as inferior or ridiculous. It´s not something one strives to receive again, is it.

Yeah. It isn´t easy. But with the excellent support structures I have found, and invested my time and (borrowed) money in… I am indeed moving forward. So. That´s all I want to say.

Please leave a comment if you have a question or remark on my first “selfie video” or on this issue. You can also join the draw of winning a sound session or a book. I will find the 2 winners on the last day of January, I have decided. Just leave a comment below my youtube video, or even better, on my facebook page “Kaltwasser Vocal Sound Therapy”. I would really appreciate that. Also, I would love more subscribers on my Youtube Channel, and more thumbs up on my facebook page. As I am building up this online space thing.

Peace & Love, y’all.

Lots of Love!

🙂

Hiya. U ok? Me I´m fine. In spite of Danish government behaving like fascists, introducing violent laws against our refugees… I´m fine. I express on Facebook, on my own wall and in the groups of my party, Alternativet. Feels good to see how many Danes agree with me about the importance of the human rights and UN rules and regulations… As an anthropologist I am deeply fascinated by the communication technology the web and our smartphones have given us. We are all potential producers of political content now. Sharing and caring, finding likeminded people with common interests, all across the globe! Horizon is widening. So much is becoming possible!!

December is busy with all the xmas preparations. Friday I went to the local pub down the street, and joined the monthly jam session.

I sang, and did percussion on my legs, stomping the floor, and also “drumming” on the piano keys… Lovely people.

Then Saturday, I first had coffee with the Red Cross Syrian Women´s Cafe. Also very lovely people. And directly afterwards, I met up with my fellow party members in Nick´s home, and we had a truely great afternoon and evening, with good food, traditional xmas drinks, inspiring conversations, and we ended up singing and dancing… My favourite activities. Had a wonderful time indeed.  🙂

Today I´m a bit tired. I´m not as strong with alcohol as I used to be. Which is okay. I´m not hungover today, though, just tired. So I have had a couple of naps throughout the day, and I´ve watched a webinar and a handful videos on videomarketing in a course I´m attending.

Last Wednesday I had my first MasterMind meeting with fellow studens in Visionary Business School. It was SO much fun!! We are all moving into the field of online teaching, all of us facing inner boundaries, pushing ourselves out of our comfort zones… I took at picture whilst waiting for the group video call to start. And ended up using it as my new banner photo on Facebook. (I don´t change the banner often, so it is a big deal to me).

I´m using it as a step in my process. Of standing up in public. Using video online. I am going to try to do my first public video appearance in the upcoming week. Maybe shoot it tomorrow. Will try to like… post it onto my youtube channel and then to my Kaltwasser Vocal Sound Therapy fb page. To promote my vocal sound therapy. I´m thinking to give a session away for free, as a xmas present. And maybe also a copy of my book, for the followers who don´t live locally. My teacher Githa says that the vocal method actually works through Facetime/Skype too, though… I will have to check that out.

Anyways. My husband is out in the grocery store now, so we will be cooking dinner soon. Let me leave you with this rather amazing video I bumped into a couple of days ago. I really felt an effect from this one. Maybe it´s not your cup of tea. Just leave it if u don´t love it.

Catch u later, gator!

Ciao for now.

Hiya

I´m in my ListeningHut behind the appletree in my garden. Let me share an old videoshot of it that I have on youtube:

It looks a bit different now. But not that much. There are limits to how I can rearrange a tinyhouse of 2 metres times 2 metres. 🙂 A present from my husband when I turned 40. Best gift ever. The piece and quiet, for a mother of three. Married to a musician. Yeah. Nice.

Just finished a meeting on Zoom. With 3 people from my Visionary Business School group, and also Light It Up group. We are looking into being online teachers, basically. Entrepreneurs. Changemakers. The three others are from USA, Canada and the Philipines. There´s a lady more in the group, I think she´s from Turkey. And then there´s me from Denmark. Fantastic spread.

Just feel so happy and inspired. Such a … frightening road to walk alone. When we can listen to eachother and cheer eachother on, it makes such a huge difference! It was my very first meeting with them today. We have a facebook group together as well. I think this group communication on progress and challenges  will be an immense help for me in my process.

I think I will leave it at that. I´m sleepy, and should go to bed. Up early with the kids, and a rather interesting and important meeting tomorrow, with some fellow citizens with shared cultural interests as me. Kind of cryptic, I know. Tell u more clearly later. May be local people reading this blogpost, and it´s early days still. If things fall through, I prefer it to do so quietly. And if the seeds are to blossom, I want to give them water and shade, no rush, no drama. 🙂

Let me leave you with a song. This one is made by a young man from Bergen, Norway, where I went to university and lived for 15 years. Love it:

I know I´m not alone.

I think I´m slowly becoming ready to go public on video. I´m practicing online, in a closed circle of likeminded video enthusiasts. Takes a different level of courage, though, to go public visible to people in one´s neighbourhood. I´m not promising I will do it. But I feel it is heading in that direction. As you know, if you´ve been reading my posts the last six months, I´m in a learning process at Visionary Business School. (Plus 3 more courses online, actually. Two on how to create online courses, and one on how to master video as a teaching tool).

Right. Short and sweet. Sleep tight where you are. Remember you are made from the same matter as is a star. Isn´t that just. Amazing. Yes indeed you are. 🙂

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!

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.

& If you want to learn more about my work as a vocal sound therapist, using Githa´s method, join my facebook page “Kaltwasser Vocal Sound Therapy”.

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.

Yup, that´s it. I just felt like giving those hours of word-craftings, a wider reach.

If you have an idea for inspiring co-creating, please do feel free to headhunt me!

Lots of Love & best wishes!

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.

A Media using Medium Me

Facebook

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.
