I had been spending four months in solitude in a cottage surrounded by fields, meadows with cows, cranes n deer and lots of forest full of chanterelles, berries, wild boars, ravens and soaring hawks. Read more about my experience by clicking here.
It gave me some real space/time to heal after my Mother left her body in autumn 2009. The cottage where I stayed was her favorite place to be. So I felt like she was all around me as Mother nature was nurturing me too. The summer I spent in the countryside gave me the possibility to be me in my pure essence: love and I felt so ready to receive.
The main thing is when I gave myself the space to let go of being occupied by all that keeps one so easily busy outside of oneself. Friends, internet and other kind of entertainment that the city offers. Peeled off the layers so I could catch up with my self once for all. Moving to the cottage gave me the chance to reconnect with nature, the plants, wild animals and to rejuvenate myself in silence. Some weeks I didn’t speak with any humans. Summer went really fast as I was taking care of the garden, writing, painting, practicing yoga, harvesting herbs and berries, swimming in lakes and just being. Such healing time of my life, felt a kind of happiness I hadn’t felt in Sweden since I was a child.
Omananda had some filming to do in Sweden and was to come by to visit me and to look for Chaga mushrooms that is a medicinal species that grows on birch trees. We never really had the time before to really meet even though we had been connected for some years. When he arrived there on the land of elves (at my doorstep) there was no expectation.. and as the days passed we both recognized that the other was bringing forth the one one truly wants to be. It turned out we have some much in common and almost like we have been living parallel lives just for one day to meet. Like we are made for each other.
So existence likes speed.. and there was no doubt at all and magic happened. When he asked me if I wanted to come with him traveling I said yes at once. I had no plans, all was open and how I had longed for someone to share THIS with. Like a miracle He was there ready to dream with me and explore together this mystical experience called life. The first pages of our fairy tale had just started to unfold. A true rising in love.
