Hello in the now where you are… 🙂
It´s soon midnight here. I´m in bed, typing away, my 6yearold son fast asleep next to me. Him and his siblings watched a film before bedtime. About ghosts. So it was hard for him to fall asleep. I hypnotized him in the end. And fell asleep myself as well, on step 7 or 6 down a green hillside, warm stone steps underneath our feet, going down, down, deeper and deeper, towards all the flowers on the field down there, in colours of orange, purple, yellow, red, orange, blue…
I love hypnosis. And guided meditations. Many exciting ones on youtube, to meet with spirit guides or departed loved ones… Allow me to share with you a couple of my favourite names:
Michael Sealey is wonderful. He does many different types, including past life regression and lucid dreaming training…
Then there´s this guy I also love to listen to, when I wake up in the night and need help to go back to sleep:
I appreciate your comments, readers, by the way. It feels very nice to know somebody is reading and enjoying my writings. Thank you for commenting. 🙂
We celebrated my eldest daughter´s 14. birthday yesterday. Family, friends, neighbours. Lunch, cake, hot dogs. Coffee, tea, 8 kids running around, singing, playing piano and violin… Later wine and beer, no excess just nice and easy, dancing with the kids on the kitchen floor there… crisps and chocolates… We do this twice a year. Once in November, and once in spring, as our two youngest children’s birthdays are only 3 weeks apart (They are 6 and 8 now). We always have a lovely time. It´s actually the only parties we invite people to. We used to invite couples over for dinner before we had the two little ones. Since then, quiet adult dinner evenings have not seemed realistic, haha…. but it could become realistic again soon now. We enjoy partying with the kids present, though. I would post a short video of us singing here, if I could get my mac to talk to my iphone, finding it hard to import photos these days, need to find tech help. You can see the video on my instagram account, though. In my name. Lene Kaltwasser Henriksen.
Oh, here´s a still I posted on Facebook today:
My son Linus-Ferdinand with the violin, my darling husband Helge next to him, on the piano… 🙂
Then the birthday-girl´s 3 best friends came and joined the party early evening, and stayed over until the next day. She´s got incredibly nice friends. As a mother I am very grateful for this. As the teens is the time when friends become more important to us than our parents. It´s just part of the process of growing up. I aim to keep the openhearted trust between us, so she will reach out to me when she will need my help, f.ex. if she happens to drink too much some times. I´m being very open with her, always have been. About what to be aware of “out there”. Equipped with information, she will be able to make better decisions. Mothering is the exercise of training people to not need mothering anymore, but be able to mother themselves! To make oneself not needed. Strange job. 🙂
Anyways. Now the following weeks will be spent buying xmas presents. We go to my mom´s for a week. Every two years we gp tp Norway and stay with her for xmas. Always lovely to see my family. Sisters, aunts and uncles, cousins… and old friends as well.
I´m also spending some time getting to know this company I´m working for, using direct sales to distribute health products that stops inflamation in the body. It´s out in 35 countries by now! I spent 2 days this week with 5 colleagues, in a vision board workshop, here´s the result (it´s not finished yet, but. It´s well on its way, very enjoyable process)! 🙂
I have also been to the cinema with my husbands a couple of times, and went to a concert Friday, with an Indian sitar player and a Danish sax player, playing ragas and improvising together moving in and out of the ragas… a truely wonderful sound experience. It was in someone´s home, the concert. This island where I live… so special…
Apart from these happenings, I´m spending my time receiving vocal sound therapy clients, and going to meetings with the green party, Alternativet (The Alternative), plus defending our honour online when the local press from time to time goes bananas in attempts to discredit our work. I hope I can stop defending us soon. We don´t actually deserve the treatment we are receiving at the moment. But I´m proud to be part of this party, so it is a most interesting task to be in the midst of the development, the building of credibility, the negotiations needed, in order to make an impact on the direction into this new day and age, for this small tourist paradise island…
I have seen that the self help author Marianne Williamson, is running for president candidacy in the wild west…! That is truely good news. Saw her slogan poster, saying: “Make America Kind Again”. Here is a text she´s posted on her facebook and instagram wall today, that I find very inspirational:
People think politics is so ugly, and part of it is. But there is something else there too, when we allow it to unfold – something noble and good. As someone who has been speaking to audiences consistently for 35 years, I can tell you that there is something deeply intelligent about the look on the faces of people sitting together in a room, considering the most significant questions about their common existence. My father was a lawyer and he always said you should speak to the smartest person on the jury. I have had the good fortune in my career of seeing people at their best — times not necessarily when they’re at their happiest, but when they’re at their deepest and most real. Whether counseling a single person or a couple or talking to a large audience, I have been with people in that place — everyone knows it, we’ve all been there — where life is serious and hushed and true, even when painful. Gandhi said that “politics should be sacred,” and I agree with that. We should participate in politics with the same level of consciousness as that which we bring to love, and therapy, and parenting, and all of our most important and meaningful pursuits. We should bring all of ourselves to politics. We should bring our hearts and minds and deepest dedication to something bigger than ourselves. It is very, very serious business in a country as big and powerful as ours; when we get it right it can be a beautiful thing, but when we get it wrong it can be a terrible thing. And we are all responsible for that. With every election, with every campaign, we are deciding something extremely important. We are deciding what is possibly the fate of millions, the fate of the earth, even perhaps the fate of humanity. And if that is not a sacred charge, I cannot imagine what is.
Isn´t that just profound?! I´ve read 2-3 of her books. Wonderfully wise. I would wish for the wild west that either her or Bernie Sanders get the hotseat next. Or ideally, the two of them together. Not that this would be possibly in that system. But it would be a dream scenario, the two of them in close collaboration.
Green Heart Politics. As I call it. Coming from the heart, aiming to heal the space between us. Truthful communication, caring for mother earth and all of her species. Nature first. Balance. Empathy. Reciprocal respect. Openminded Listening. Equality.
I never knew Gandhi said “Politics should be sacred”. I love it.
Right…. Guess I need to stop here. And try go back to sleep. Up early tomorrow, get the kids to school. Good night, reader dear. Tuning out with a nice song. Take care.
Actually, in spite of the title, it´s not exactly a nice song to fall asleep to. Haha…. Another go, hang on (Gosh I adore youtube)! 🙂
The Monroe Institute. Check it out. Spacy stuff. They have found out that what they call hemi-sync (certain different frequencies played simultaneously to each side of the brain)… it enables one to practice out of body experiences. !! I´m going to do a course in this stuff, I reckon. When I have the time and money. I love surfing the alfa and theta waves. Astral travelling, lucid dreaming, OOB experiences… Give it to me! I wanna explore these modes of consciousness.
Here is a lecture that is rather mindblowing, that fell into my turban the other night (He´s talking about OOB and Monroe):
No. I was going to try and sleep now! Godblessit… 🙂 … Gotta find a title and illustration for this blogpost now, and get some deep zzzleeep, yeah… Good night again. Lots of Love. Ciao. For now. 🙂
