To live with nothing to hide

We all know the feeling we get in our bodies when we are compromising something truly important to us. The body always lets us know, even when the mind is in denial. We shrink in on ourselves…more specifically we can feel it in our solar plexus and we cannot, in all honesty and integrity, meet the world [Read More…]

Why I celebrate the International Women's day

In Norway where I grew up March 8th was a big day. We marched in parades through the city, we dressed up in nice clothes, we said congratulation! In Norway women have as close to equal rights as it gets at this time on our planet, so one could easily say, “whats the big deal”, [Read More…]

New pathways overflowing with lush greens and fragrant roses

Many of us are using this time of the year as a time to reconsider habits that no longer serve us. Eating habits, exercise habits (or lack of them), mental patterns or relationship habits. Our brain is an amazing tool; it monitors and adjusts so that the energy we have, is spent in the most [Read More…]

Are you friend with your mind?

  In spiritual/personal growth circles we often hear that we have to “get out of the mind”. We are tired of having our every experience filtered and analyzed by our thoughts, so we begin to seek out inspiration from cultures that move more from the heart. Cultures like India or Peru. We want to be [Read More…]

The Women's Temple group

For the balanced feminine to blossom it is helpful, and in our experience crucial, to create and sustain women’s circles that truly nourish us in the deepest sense. Instead of enforcing the status quo by focusing on our problems and personal shortcomings, circles like this connect us with truth beyond our fears and limited self-images. [Read More…]

Yes, today I am wiser!

simply because I met you. And you showed me you. You stayed here with me, shaking in your fear. You stayed. You flaunted your love and desire for your man, to me, you did not hold anything back. You punched me with the clarity of your life purpose, so simple, so clear, so potent. You [Read More…]

Do Not Lose Heart

We would love to hear how this article resonates in you, so please leave your comments if you feel inspired to so. Enjoy! Love [Read More…]

You dont have to do it alone

I just came back to our Awakening Women Temple Office after another inspiring meeting with my Goddess Wealth Mastery group. We are a group of powerful women, meeting once a month to support each other and stretch  each other to live and share as big as we can. I love this group, they are my [Read More…]

Feminine Leadership is not defined by your job ~ it is who you are…

We are in the exciting planning phase for our new leadership program for Awakening Women, Sweden, and in this process I am again and again faced with the question what is leadership exactly? This word is usually associated with people who are in leading positions in a company/organization, or who have their own company. At Awakening [Read More…]

Awakening Feminine Courage

When I ask women why they hold back their gifts, almost every one answers that it is because of fear. In this DVD class we are exploring how we can break the spell of fear. You can buy the DVD/CD at our website [youtube=]

Are You Part of the 11%?

Jay Marianne Williamson, she is such a Durga embodiment! Here she is speaking that feminine voice of hope, of the willingness to take a stand. I take a stand for a vision of love for this planet. Anybody else? [youtube=]

Finally a usefull Facebook "gift"

If you are on Face book, you have probably had the annoying experience of receiving different “gifts ” from people, and when you click on them you realize the gift is an image of a plant or a mandala or an Indian guru, and that you are supposed to send them on, and then…..what? Luckily [Read More…]

A Urgent Message From the Mother!

Can hanging out with women reduce stress?

Life is always full of ups and downs, we will always be called upon to meet the unknown, and our capacity to do that gracefully is to a great degree ruled by the level of stress in our bodies. In our studies at the Awakening Women Institute we encourage women to seek the support from [Read More…]

A Feminine Base Camp

The number one principle of feminine leadership, is to create your own feminine base camp. This is where you get nutritions for your body and soul, before you soar up to the highest peaks. A huge error of the feminine is that we have a collective habit of taking care of everybody else first, forgetting [Read More…]
