Reiki is an Japanese energy method for stress reduction, deep relaxation and healing. It’s an amazing tool regardless you have tension, pain, physical or emotional blockages and inconveniences.
My journey with Reiki started a little over a year ago and I can’t be more grateful for it’s gift and power. Here’s a piece of my story:
Reiki gave me guidance when I needed it the most. It came into my life in a period of time when everything turned upsidedown for me. I had just recently resigned from my work place, and was about to start up my own business when I ended up in the middle of a divorce. Reiki gave me a feeling of unconditional love, trust and warmth. The experience of Reiki and the guidance of it showed me my way forward and what needed to be healed before I could move on. I got closer to my wounds and I could heal easier and faster, everything that was hurting in me, both mentally, emotionally and spiritually to be able to continue moving forward. Some of the wounds healed as they were actually happening. It was a very intensive period of my life, but it also made me stronger and helped me to believe and trust in the process. I could see what Reiki was capable of doing in and around me, and it gave me a deeper understanding of what it can do. It was so strong and powerful that I couldn’t ignore it strenght and power. Overall it gave me a feeling of trust, love and safety within myself. That alone has given me the strenght to move forward without looking back at the past. Reiki doesn’t hesitate and is very straight forward and can show you exacly what you need to see and know, and if you’re ready and allow the process it can literally change your life. It did for me.
I’ve been blessed to have experience Reiki when I needed it the most and I want you to know that there’s always a solution, always a way forward. We can’t always see it here and now, but it’s there. Reiki can help us to see it, feel it and move towards it.

Vegan mayonnaise made from the water of chickpeas. Delicious as it is, or use it as a base for aioli, just add some garlic to it, or add sambal oelek for a spicy alternative. It’s so good with fried vegetable or make your own pommes frites in the oven and use the mayo as a dip.
Vegan mayo recepie:
Water from chickpeas, about 1 dl
Neutral oil, 1.75 dl
Vinegar, 1.5 tsp
Mustard, 1 tsp
Salt, 1/2 tsp
Mix all of the ingredients except the oil. For best result use a stick blender. Wait with the oil. Add the oil gently and slowly, while you’re mixing the ingredients. Pour the oil slowly while mixing and notice how the mayo gets thicker and thicker as you pour more oil in there. Continue to mix the ingredients untill you’ve added all of the oil. If the blend is not thick enough, add more oil (the same procedure as above – add the oil while using the blender).
Voila! Enjoy your mayo.
We’ve all had afternoon when we just don’t want to do anything else than take a good long nap. Unfortunately we don’t always have the opportunitie to be able to do so. Slow afternoons aquire some good snacks. I love to prepare healthy snacks and place them in my fridge for later, and occasions like this.
Take your favorite veggies and cut them in pieces, I usually use carrot, cucumber and/or celery. Store them in a container in the fridge. Meanwhile make the hummus, and put it next to the vegetables. Then your’re ready when your energy level starts to go down and you need something to snack on quickly.
Chickpeas, about 400 gram
Neutral oil, 1-2 tbsp
Spiskummin, 1/2 tsp
Tahini, 1-2 tsp
Garlic, 2 cloves
Lemon, squeeze the juice out of app half a lemon
Salt, half a tsp
I’m not that good at measuring my ingredients, because I always put little by little in there and then I adjust by tasting it. So you might want to add more or less of some of the ingredients.
Place the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Dip your vegetables in the magnificent hummus and enjoy your afternoon!
A heartmeditation for the body, mind and soul. This is a calming, heartopening meditation which you can do when you feel lost, or need to connect and find peace in your heart. It’s perfect to do when the world is spinning and you need to find peace in a certain situation or relationship. I do it once in a while and it always gets me back on track. If I’m stressed I easily loose my way, and then I sit down and do this to be able to find the connection again. It grounds me in my current situation and also it fills me up with a feeling of peace, trust and gratitude. Going through a divorce recently and managing two small kids and at the same time starting up a new business can be demanding. A lot of people tell me that I’m strong and brave, but actually I do not feel that I am. I just keep going. But I do focus on the moment, and when I feel lost I do everything I can to trust again. To know that everything that is happening is happening for a reason. Try this out and you’ll know what I mean.
- Start with creating some space for yourself, make sure you have 15-20 minutes to do this and find a quit place where you can relax into the meditation. If you like, put on some relaxing gentle music in the background.
- Place your hands behind you, slowly look up and back, and gently and with ease push your chest up. Open up your chest as much as you can. Take a couple of breaths here before you slowly come back.
- Sit comfortably and close your eyes. Take a couple of deep breaths. Fill your lungs with air. Then continue to breath down to your stomach, all the way down to your root chakra. Continue for a couple of minutes. Then gently shift your focus to your heart. Fill it up with love, compassion and affection. Connect to the frequency. You can even place your hands on your heart to help your mind to focus. Sit here for a while. Continue breathing. And focus on the feeling of love and compassion.
- Think of a person who you love. A person that makes you happy. Who fills you up. A person you’re grateful for having in your life. Send them love and affection. Focus on the feeling of sending love to them. Wish them well. Sit here for a couple of minutes and feel the connection and the feeling of gratitude.
- Think of a person with who you don’t get along with. Someone you struggle with communicating. Someone that is challenging you. Send them love and affection. Open your heart up. Even if it feels like impossible or uncomfortable, send them love and compassion. Continue breathing deeply. Sit here for a couple of minutes. Focus.
- Finish the meditation by just breathing. You can lay down in savasana and relax your body to the sides, letting your whole essence relax. Relax your body and mind. Stay here for a couple of minutes before you continue with your day.
This mediation allows you to open your heart up. To go beyond your boundaries of what you think is possible. And also to connect to the highest vibrations of love and gratitude. What you give, is what you receive. If you’ll open up your heart to other, people will open up their hearts to you.
