Everyone has seen the movie “The Secret” or read the book. And if you haven`t, you have probably heard of the Law of Attraction, the power of manifestation. I have personally been consciously using this technique for a few years now, and I have to say that for me it has been working well. I have always been writing “wishing- lists” of things I want to accomplish or manifest. And it is so much fun to find them years later just to see that a lot of what is written on the list has been accomplished or achieved!
The last one I found was from 2004. In 2004 I wanted to speak 4 languages, travel the world, skydive and a few other things. Well, nine years later I have traveled around the world, I speak 4 languages, and I went from skydiving to BASE-jumping.
The key is when you write your list ( just try it, cause it can`t hurt you, it can only work or not) to not say “I WANT”, what you should say instead is “I CHOOSE” … So for example, “I choose to attract a job as a …”
You also have to be very specific, write exactly what you want, the year or date for when you want this manifestation to take place. Otherwise the Universe gets confused…. Also when you read your list, try to picture the situation in your head, as if it has already happened.
The thing to remember is that we don’t really choose the circumstances around the things we manifest. A good example of this for me was in 2010. I was running out of money and every time I went to the ATM, I pictured the screen saying that I had 10.000 euro on my bank account. I did this again and again and again.
Six months later my dad passed away from cancer (Bless his heart), and I inherited some money.
Guess how much money I now had on my bank account?…
Yes, that is right. With my savings and the money that I inherited, I had 10.000 euro on my bank account. So I manifested the money, but of course the circumstances were very sad.
Right now I take my list everywhere I go. And I read it first thing in the morning and last thing I do before I go to bed.
It cant hurt!
Now I will share a few things that I have on my list.
-I choose to be self employed within 1 year.
-I choose to attract great adventures in the year 2013!
-I choose to end all wars, with myself and others.
(Imagine if everyone would do this…!)
Go ahead, write your list today. And the Universe will work with you.
Even for times when I can´t run, I try to keep a running schedule going, so to speak. Even if the activity is not running, but some other kind of exercise. Right now I am doing 1 hour of exercise every day. Some days if I have been working and walking all day long (7 hours of constant walking fast pace) I dont do anything afterwards. Keeping a running schedule, doing other things is very helpful, it keeps me motivated and happy. Right now I am doing, spinning, zumba, snowboarding, hot yoga and whatever else that seems interesting to me. f I was running, I`d be probably doing that 3 times a week, and the other days somethings else, like climbing.
It is not too much I think , to dedicate 1 hour a day for physical exercise. The weather here in Durango, Co is sunny and warm during the days. So there is no excuse for not being outside.
The big thing right now is that we are moving to Switzerland in April! And I am super excited because that means that I get to BASE- jump more often, and run up in the Alps. It is such a magical place and country, everything is co clean and neat and well organized. And everything runs on time!
The place we are moving to is an extremesports “mecka” and meetingpoint for paragliders, mountainbikers, skydivers, climbers, bikers, hikers, whatever you want to do-you can do it! So I am packing down my Vitamix and my BASE parachute in my backpack and leaving most other things here in Colorado. The two most important things I am going to carry with me. I will continue doing my Super Blue Green Algae business over there too, doing Network marketing allows one to live a flexible life and creates a residual income. Suits me, I want to be able to continue to travel the world, BASE-jump and explore! And not have to dedicate all my time in to a J:O:B (JustOverBroke)
If you are interested in improving your life and your health, with the proper food, -superfood, and to maybe make a living out of it! Don´t hesitate to contact me and I will be here for you!
Wish You a wonderful week!
I want the world to know that I feel so fortunate to be here, on this planet Earth today, as a woman! Because I feel like for so many thousands of years, women have been suppressed and denied their power. And now we are stepping into our power. The power to be healers and caretakers of the Earth,. Women have a natural ability to connect with Source, a natural ability to take care of and nourish other beings. Women, more often than men live in their hearts. We listen more to the “gut feeling” or intuition and even if it doesn´t make sense to our rational mind, we act on the feeling in our hearts.
I do not believe that we are moving from a patriarchy into a matriarchy, but I believe it is somewhere in between, a new way of equality and balance. It is hard between women and men to understand each other and to find a meetingpoint. I see that in so many relationship, including my own. It is really hard to build that bridge from Mars over to Venus. Not impossible- but takes a lot of work.
Women are now stepping into their power. There are so many powerful women all over the world. And the Sisterhood between women of all ages, is an amazing thing to me! I have travelled around the globe, and whenever I needed a Sister, some guidance or help, She appeared. I have been blessed to meet many beautiful women and in many different countries. No matter the cultural differences, there is always a connection there. Recognizing the Goddess in the other, recognizing the courage and the strenght that it takes to be a caretaker, perhaps a mother, maybe a wife and hopefully a free spirit.
Today at work, I was surrounded by so many beautiful, loving and caring women and it made me so happy! Like I said, I feel blessed to have all these women in my life, to talk to to cry with, to drink hot chocolate in the sofa with, to hike and climb and jump off cliffs with.
I truly love my Sisters!
Wild plants and weeds are excellent ingredients in the raw cuisine. How does a green drink made out of mallow, served with winter squash spagetti and dandelion pesto sound like? Or chocolate dessert with chicory root mixed in? The raw cuisine has alot to offer when it comes to utilising the “weeds” in our gardens and turning it into healthy foods.Weeds are not evil, they are in fact super good for us!
There are alot of good things in this world. A lot of good people with a lot of good intentions. What I love about the place I live in is the community here. Locals support locals. We have awesome farmers markets here in Durango, and restaurant are often bying mostof their produce from local farmers. Durango is a town located right where the desert meets the mountains, and the Animas river runs right trough town. There are alot of environmentalists here and alot of earth and plant knowledge. Many herbalists and wild food gatherers try to share this knowledge with their fellow “Durangotangs”. I work in a RAW food/ WILD food cafe called Turtle Lake Refuge. We incorporate wild plants into our meals, so the menu can look like this.
Nettle/ Mushroom soup with winter squash spagetti and dandelion pesto. For desert a chocolate cake with some chicory root mixed in.
Turtle lakes mission is to celebrate the connection between personal health and wild land. This is an important mission.
We have so much abundance in the nature around us, even in a dry climate like the desert. So many roots and berrys to use, even in the winter you can find something out there!
I am a certified RAW food/WILD food chef and I love to feel the connection of finding my own food out in the forrest and on the fields. The weeds give us so many minerals and other nutrients, they are mostly organic depending on where you pick them. Natures superfood.
Another superfood is the Super Blue Green Algae, that is also a wild food. Now this one is my favorite! It is actually Earths first food! And loaded with a broad spectrum of nutrients, minerals, phytonutrients and vitamins. It is a biomudulater, it brings the body back into balance- homeostasis.
I believe this is the way to go, back to nature. Back to the roots of respecting the land, respecting Mother nature and being grateful for all the abundance.
Share this blog with your friends and spread the word about wild plants and foods that we can pick right from the backyard to add some extra nutrients into our raw cuisine-for free!

I know some awesome recipes that will allow me (and you) to be eating raw food for Christmas, and I will share some of them with you here.
Holidays are special times for us when we get to spend some extra time with our families, but it is also a time when having a different diet can be extra hard because of the social pressure. No need to panic! Eating raw food can really be the solution if you don’t like the heaviness and drowsiness after eating cooked, rich Christmas food. Makes it much easier to dance around the Christmas tree too! That is the traditional way of celebrating Christmas in Scandinavia. In the old days, people also used to put out some food, (mostly porridge with melted butter in the middle) for the house gnome.
Maybe I´ll just make some raw delicious carrot cake to put out on the porch this year… Here are some recipes that will give a different experience to the taste buds and add a healthy element to the dinner table.
I also recommend supplementing your diet with Enzymes and Probiotics, for an easier digestion and for more overall energy. Coming from Finland, I know how I can feel in the winter time. Tired and fatigue cause of no sunlight, its dark and all I want to do I curl up and drink tee. It is harder to get motivated to do stuff. When it is cold outside, it is also harder to be eating raw food. One important thing to remember is that we can heat the food up a bit, and be mindful of not ingesting anything cold, so even a salad can be warmed up in the dehydrator or in a pot. Warm it up on low heat and stir it a lot. It is not a good idea to start your day with a cold smoothie. Better make some buckwheat porridge and warm it up slightly!
Sprouted Buckwheat Breakfast Porridge
Soak 1 cup of buckwheat over night or for 8h
Process the buckwheat together with 1 banana and some ginger, cinnamon, cardamom and soaked raisins in a food processor. Just hit “Pulse” a few times. Warm your porridge slightly in a pot, stir it all the time. The point is not to cook it, cause then you kill the enzymes. It`s just nicer to ingest something warm in the wintertime.
Christmas Dinner Carrot Mash
1,5 cups of Cashews
1-2 tsp. Salt
1-2 Tbs. Lemon juice
2 Tbs. Olive oil
Begin with processing the cashews in a food processor, add all the other ingredients (except for the cauliflower) and process it until it becomes very smooth and even. Cut the cauliflower in small pieces so it looks like rice, and mix it in with the mashed carrots. Put it in a form and dehydrate it on 110 F for a couple of hours. Sprinkle some nutmeg on top and serve it!

Right now I am facing an injury from running, it is called “runners knee” and is a very painful experience, starts “popping up” after running a few miles. I also have sore arches on both feet, so right now I have to think of other thing to do, other “outlets”. My injury from running feels like a sign to me. A sign that I should stop running in every sense and just stop and… breathe!
When we do get injured or sick, I think it is Nature`s way of saying “you need to take a moment and look around, take time to redefine yourself again and don´t be so caught up on all the things that you think you have to do. You don´t need to do anything. Just allow yourself to be. Simply be in the moment”.
So I have started doing more yoga and meditation. And I invested in some spiritual books that are really nourishing my soul.
Speaking of nourishing, when we are sick or injured we can´t expect to be healing fast if we don’t give our bodies the right fuel. A very common misconception is that when we are sick, we need to eat A LOT. This is not true. What we need to do is eat LESS, because our bodies are working hard to “fix” itself, if and when we eat, our bodies have to put all the energy it could have used to heal the injury or inflammation we have, into digesting all the food instead. So it actually takes longer for us to get back on track again.
Drinking enough water is essential, and eating enzymes and probiotics because they work as a “garbage patrol”, cleaning our blood and fighting inflammation and bad bacteria. We are supposed to drink 2,5 liters of water(or half our body weight in ounces) every day. Not cold water, but lukewarm with some Celtic Sea salt in it. Lemons are another good, alkalizing thing to put in your drinking water.
With this injury from running, I have increased my intake of enzymes and probiotics a lot. I never use conventional medicine. The enzymes work phenomenally to reduce aches and pains due to inflammation. I also ice my knee and try to sit down or stretch whenever I can. Oxygen, is something we want to bring into our bodies as much as possible through deep breathing. It helps the blood circulation and brings new blood to the area of inflammation.
Through eating the super blue green algae we ingest chlorophyll and chlorophyll is the “blood” of the plant and is strikingly similar to the human blood (the difference being that human blood has iron as the central atom and chlorophyll has magnesium). Algae actually produces over 90% of the planets oxygen! What better food can we get than Mother Earths first food? www.earthsfirstfood.com
In the meantime, while I am “waiting” for my body to heal, I will keep reading, writing, drinking lemon water, meditating, doing yoga and being outside in the sun.
All is well, all is as it should be and my mission besides helping others is to remember to nourish my own body and soul.

The way we take care of our bodies’ trough food and exercise is very important, to me meditation for health is something equally essential. A teacher at a retreat once told me that “meditation is like food for your brain”. To me that said it all. We eat every day, sleep every day, many of us exercise on a regular basis, hopefully with the intention to stay healthy. Meditation for health is something we also should consider doing on a daily basis.
It`s funny when I think of how I started BASE- jumping, it was actually thanks to meditation! When I was 22, I got tired of school and wanted to travel as far away from my country as possible. So I went to Australia for a year. And trough synchronicity, I found Vipassana meditation. And from there I got to know a man who also practiced Vipassana. He was a skydiving instructor and BASE jumper. I was very fortunate; he taught me everything he could. Including skydiving and BASE-jumping. We sat in meditation many hours together including a 10 day course in Thailand.
I have been sitting a silent ten day course every year ever since I started. Soon the eight one is coming up. The changes that I have noticed in my life since I started meditating are profound, and the benefits of meditation are many.
My sleeping pattern has changed. I can now get by with six hours of sleep, when before I needed eight. After my first course I stopped drinking alcohol and became a dedicated vegetarian with periods of being a vegan. (Now I am on a raw food path). I started to pay attention to my body and how different foods would affect me. I also gained a mental clarity that I had not felt before. My memory is better. Synchronicity increased. I could let go of things easier, without feeling so attached to people and situations. I listen to my intuition more.
When I started meditating and noticed the benefits, I got really excited about it all and I would get up in the mornings at 4 am to practice yoga for 1-2 hours and then 1 hour of meditation. I felt so awakened and radiant. I still try to meditate every day and participate in a retreat every year. Raw foods , the Super Blue Green Algae, exercise and meditation/spiritual practice are all an expression of LIFE. My way of saying that with my whole being, I support LIFE! These are the things I do not want to miss out on, because all of them have a huge impact on me, the way I think, feel and act.
So along with all the other things you do to stay healthy; if you are not already doing it, meditation for health is something I strongly recommend for everyone.
Many Blessings and good vibrations!
