I used to be lost and confused, felt like I didn’t fit in, wanted more and could “feel” that there was more out there, but I didn’t know how to be true to myself – always thought that I had to please others. I thought that I would be happy if I just lost weight or met a man and I tried to control things to happen, but it did not work.
Born in Sweden; left school at sixteen, tried different jobs, was restless and moved to Copenhagen in Denmark.
It took me a long time to understand that everything that I needed was always within me, and I couldn’t force anything to happen because it would develop in time, and through my life experiences.
I had a lifesaving colostomy operation and my mother was found dead the same day. From that moment everything changed, and the person I used to be was no longer present. At the hospital, they told me that my tumour might be cancerous and I had to wait for the biopsy. After four days I found out that my tumour was benign, it was endometriosis that had caused my twisted bowel. Of course, it was a huge relief to know it was not cancer but it was difficult to be happy, because how could I be filled with joy when my mother was no longer here?
I was sad, devastated and angry, but I did a lot of soul-searching and for the first time I was forced to be still because there was nothing else I could do. I had to focus on my recovery and learn my new routines with my colostomy.
Slowly I began to listen within and trust in Spirit. It was a blessing to hear the guidance from my soul, my late mother and my Spirit guides, they had tried to whisper to me earlier, but me being too occupied I never listened. I had an “awakening” and I said to myself that I have to accept my situation, because there was nothing I could do about it. I couldn’t go back in time and change it. Being angry and sad would only do me more harm, and it would definitely not bring my mother back or get rid of my colostomy bag.
All things considered, I realised how lucky I was. I was alive, and I somehow found an enormous strength to carry on, and I wanted to be well again. I wanted to live my life to the fullest, follow my dreams and move to the UK…
…and I did.
This is the reason why I do what I do.
Supporting others to grow and follow their dreams gives me tremendous joy.
Do not let fear or naysayers stop you from doing what you love.
