Changes in life

Hello gorgeous,

It is Friday and the weekend is almost about to begin. How has your week been so far? We can barely believe it is already Friday. It has been a pretty hectic week we have to admit. We are still catching up on work after our last eventful days in Amsterdam, the move to Sweden and to start to get things organized over here. We want to give our appologies for you who have sent us e-mails and messages. We promise we will reply as soon as we can!

sverige2After some days back in good old Sweden we have to say it feels unsual good to be here. Both of us have always been on the run wanting to go somewhere. We are still on the run but now it is on completely new terms. We love Sweden but trying to explain it we have always had a trapped feeling while we have been living here. For us there has been something calling us out in the world. It is our nature and we have always been eager to go out there, explore, meet new people, see new places, put ourselves in new situations and gain new experiences. This is simply how we are and our heart desires have always been to have that freedom to do all those things, not to be tied up anywhere. We are really amazed of the journey we have undergone this spring. We have been seeking all the answers within ourselves, we have tried to quiet our minds as much as we can, we have chosen love, been grateful, stayed present and have had universe to guide us. Now we are creating our lives we have always dreamt of. To be able to come and go as we wish to. To get the contrasts that we need in our lives and that make us feel alive. Sweden is always going to be a place we call home but we see ourselves as the citizens of the world. This time being back it occured to us that nothing has been this beautiful before. Yesterday when we walked on the street outside the house we were asking ourselves if it is just us but have the surroundings always been this gorgeous? This for us was just a proof that our minds have switched completely. To stay present and to be conscious of everything that is surrounding you there is simply nothing but beauty to be seen. It is truly amazing and you have no idea how much we appreciate to be where we are, right now at this very second. 🙂

What a wonderful shining weekend Amsterdam have had to offer. We appreciate every sun beam as much we possible can! If you are from the Northen part of this world, you probably know what we are talking about? 😉 Many of us are blessed to develop such a gratitude for our sun and how powerful it truly is. The life energy it creates. It is amazing when you think deeply about it!

We had a very lovely weekend so far. As you can see from the pics above we have spent time outside in the sun. Walked around the city and had freshly squeezed orange juice by the canal in Jordaan. We have also enjoyed one of our favorite recipe; hemp/avocado salsa with raw pasta this time made by zucchini and carrots. Recipe is here! We also enjoyed our beloved key lime pie decorated with strawberries. Recipe you find here!

We also had some work done and our projects proceeds with heaps of love and process. We cannot wait to tell you all about it. It is amazing how this universe truly works. Even if we are aware of the energy force and we know deep within us that the only matters in life is this very moment and to go with the flow – we are over and over again amazed how perfectly everything in this universe is synchronized! As soon you start to pay attention to it. Nothing in this world happens without any deeper meaning. We simply have to be so fully present to be able to notice it. We have talked about appreciation list before but we cannot stress about it enough. It has truly changed our lives – million times to the better! We have done it for a long period in our lives but not very focused, more when we felt we needed it. When we started our new raw vegan lifestyle and in addition with Echart Tolle´s teachings about the power of now – it felt as the next natural step to take. To stay focused in this very moment – on a higher level. What we came to realize is how powerfully you are focused on what you are writing and by that allowing your vibration to rise. With time and practise you will match yourself with the frequency your object as attention holds. The most important part, do it with your fully attention and love! We started to do it seriously four months ago and have been amazed how our dreams now are very much our reality. In the end there is no difference between dreams and reality. It is a matter of focusing and it is obviously much more easy to focus on the “reality” that the rest of the world is constantly pointing at. However, our two first week together here we somehow stopped following our amazing habit we had created. We got so caught in our new life together here in Amsterdam and trying to settle two energies in a new way of living. It surely showed us after these weeks that we needed a change. We felt too many times disconnected and not fully present as we were used to. We simply needed a change! Then we suddenly realized we have totally forgot about the appreciaton list and last week we started again. Every morning we wake up have a massive glas of warm water with lemon and we sit down for a good while and write, write and write – about all the things we are grateful for and what feels right in this very moment! One week later we can clearly feel a difference in our energy field and how we are focused on this very moment, and from here everything can unfold with perfection.What we have realized is that we needed that break to notice how out of track we are when we donnot focus right here, right now. We want to point out that when you are very aware of energies and being in alignment with yourself – you notice it much more stronger and faster when you are not fully up-to-speed with yourself. You simply get used to higher and more connected feelings that every step outside your path feels so strong within you.

Before we leave you for now we want to share our Fresh Pink Nutness breakfast we started off this Sunday with!

Today we want to share some very powerful words by Echart Tolle that has helped us tremendously on our journey and suits perfectly whit our thoughts we have shared with you today. These words come from his book “The Power of Now”:

“You get ‘there’ by realizing that you are there already”

Simply but yet so powerful it can be!

Buckwheat porridge

1365189283017 1365189045897 1365184164325 1365189145610

Happy shining Saturday to you!

Hope you are ready to embrace this wonderful weekend we have ahead of us. Yesterday we had such a good productive day working at a café ending the lovely day with delicious red wine and olives. We are so grateful for our freedom to be able to work at places that inspires us at the moment. Sometimes we like go to different cafés sharing the good vibes with other entrepeneurs working at their mobile offices as well. This freedom is something we value tremendously!

Now it is 06.30 local time and we are off to our bikram yoga. The best way to start the day! 🙂 First we will have a small green juice each and we want to share an other recipe with you. That is buckwheat porridge. It is so tasty and a bit “heavier” breakfast but still super healthy and will make you feel vibrant and happy. There are those days when you know you will wake up the next day with a bigger appetite or know your body needs something extra. This breakfast is perfect for occasions like these! It works of course perfectly every day, and will make you thrive as you should.

So let´s make som buckwheat porridge! 

INGREDIENTS
– Buckwheat
– Bananas
– Almond milk (goes well with water if you donnot have any almond milk)
– Chia seeds (optional)
– Dates
– Maca
-Blueberries (topping)
– Gojiberries (topping

Before going to bed mash a banana (or two) in a bowl. Add your almond milk and buckwheat. If you want it even more delicious and creamier you can also add a table spoon chia seeds. Stir around and put it in your fridge.

1365149815569In the morning take your delicious pudding and put it in your mixer. Mix it together with a date or two if you want a little sweeter taste to it. So good. Let it mix until it is a nice and creamy porridge. Pour it in to your breakfast bowl. Top it with a lot of vibrant berries filled with antioxidants that really do wonders for your body!

Voilá! This is soooo good. We had a whole bowl with blueberries we added to the porridge that is not showed in the pic. You cannot have enough berries 😉

Before we let you go and enjoy this beautifil day we want to share today´s powerful words with you from the book “1,000 Little Things Happy and Successful People do Differently”:

“Don’t wait for someone who hurt you to make it up to you; this kind of thinking only keeps your old wounds from healing. Waiting for them to change is not the answer. You have no control over them, and they may never change.

Inner peace is found by changing your thinking, not the people who hurt you. And you change your thinking for yourself, for your joy, your peace of mind, your own understanding, and your bright future that has nothing to do with this person or what they did to you.

So forgive those who have hurt you in the past, and even more importantly, forgive yourself for allowing them to hurt you. Then smile like you’ve never cried, re-open your heart and mind like you’ve never been hurt, and live the rest of your life like you’re running out of time.”

With our hearts,
Julie & Katrin

Good morning precious,

We have probably all heard this famous proverb by Mahatma Gandhi and most of us might think what can I do? I cannot influence others in that way! As always, those are just negative thoughts that will not bring YOU or your fellow beings further on our life journey here. We have to realize deep inside us that what we do matters, what we THINK and FEEL do matter and that in a much deeper level than we possibly can imagine. Think about it, you meet someone that is genuinely happy and living his/her dreams with such a passion. The love this person feels cannot simply stay with him/her and you feel affected by the good vibes. Maybe you feel inspired to take some further actions to do something you have wanted to do for a while or maybe that person affect your way of thinking in a possitive way; yes maybe more things are possible than I have thought of before! It does not really matter WHAT he/she did to influence you but the fact that he/she did! You felt a little push to follow an impulse of acting and going in one direction. The same thing the other way around – you might enter a room and immediatlely feel an intense negative pressure.. and that without speaking with anyone. It  is simply in the air, radiating from the people around!

We can of course take this in much higher or lower scales. The point is equal. WE MUST UNDERSTAND WE ARE ARE WORTHY AND WE HAVE THE POWER WITHIN US! Next step for us, you and me, might not be world peace 😉 BUT we can always do something that will lead to something else that will lead…. you get the point! It is such a powerful and positive spiral that simply keeps accelerating the more of us that are joining.

So let´s keep shining. Recycle. Help our neighbours. Choose local instead of mass produced. Smile and keep your thoughts pure and let go of negativity. Say hello to the bus driver. Do small acts and you will see within a short time that you have the power and from there we can all work together and bring this power to higher levels!

Another high power habit is to start the day of with a smoothie filled with nutritions and vitamins that will make you thrive! This smoothie was a bit of a special combination but nevertheless very tasty and gave the perfect start of the day.

INGREDIENTS
– Frozen blueberries
– Papaya + seeds
– Dates
– Maca
– gojiberries & mullberries (topping)

We will now leave you with these powerful words by David Deida. Hopefully you are inspired to radiate positive vibes! 🙂

“Everything you do right now ripples outward and affects everyone. Your posture can shine your heart or transmit anxiety. Your breath can radiate love or muddy the room in depression. Your glance can awaken joy. Your words can inspire freedom. Your every act can open hearts and minds.”

Love,
Julie & Katrin
