Cups, yes, cups!!!

Just for fun, I decided to create those two cup variations, “Coffee & Flowers” and “Teatime with JOY”

They have proven very popular, and are actually among my own favorite coffee & tea cups here at home, with their soothing image and message.

The sound of A sudden stillness

HealingHearts

(“Healing hearts”. Text reads: “In the quiet spaces lives JOY – CREATIVITY – CONNECTION + CARE. Healing of our hearts. To purchase this original painting, contact me.)

The other night I sat down in my living room together with Rune after the children were put to bed. During all the busyness of life we have learned that if we want to have some time together we best put it in the calendar, at least once a week. But often, when we reach that point of the day where the dinner has been served + cleaned away and the children has got their attention and love and are put to bed, we are both a bit frazzled. And it takes quite a shift to move into anything new. So, that night, we agreed to just sit for a while. And take a moment to breathe.

And there I sat and was completely STILL. For more than 5 minutes. at 8.30 pm. Wow!

(Me, on a beach on Bornholm)

As I settled, I began to notice the many fine sounds in the room. The calmness of the evening, inviting us to listen to the inner voice and find peace with whatever IS. And I SAW my life, and me in it.

I began noticing how much I have in my life to be grateful for. It is a lot. And I felt the healing of being grateful for what there IS, rather than to long for what IS NOT.

It hit me almost as a chock how I very rarely just SIT.  Without having some specific inner or outer activity going on. I have many wonderful practices. I consider my painting process as kind of a meditative state, a deep inner quiet and a connection to fine things. I do running and pilates. And I walk. I also write morning pages. But just sitting without doing anything has not been part of my practise, so far. From now on it will.

And to be quiet together with someone I care for before engaging is a beautiful way to start a meeting.

Thank you, Quiet moment. Once again, I am grateful to be alive. I will try to remember.

Creative Vitamins newsletter

If you are in doubt whether this newsletter is for you, feel free to JUST TRY IT OUT! To sign off the list again takes just one click and you receive no hard feelings in return, truly. I too make cleaning sessions in my inbox now and then, that´s totally understood and a healthy sign!

I have been planning and dreaming about creating this newsletter for a loooong time. In fact, it has become one of those elephant-tasks that I knew would be just a tiny cute mouse-task once I got around to it. For a whole year I put it off (A YEAR!!!), until I was so fed up with it I made it my nr. 1 priority in the beginning of this year. But that´s how it is; sometimes we are just not ready even though what we want to do would only takes 5 minutes or one day out of a lifetime. And there are many inner and outer reasons for that!  + many wonderful ways to overcome those resistances, like in this list of links.

But now it´s here!!! I managed to spend that day to learn the tiny mouse-bite of techy stuff so I can offer you more eye-candy than a normal mail, because I love when things are pleasing to the eyes. By joining you will be the first to know about shop sales, workshops, and I will spice it up with small bites of creativity and other news, in both english and danish.

I look forward to sharing news + inspiration with you (typically about once a month), don´t forget to SIGN UP!

With care, Lise.

Hello new year – hello transformation and new visions!

Let it be no secret! I love doing this:

Creating vision maps

Walking with visions

finding images for Vision maps

….Yes, I love it when we honor our sincere wish to make life count, and when we use creativity as a tool to make that happen.

That is why I, in the beginning of every  year, work with my visions in words and pictures. That is why I create Vision boards. And that´s why I love teaching Workshops using that and other creative tools.

This year, however, it seemed like an uphill process. At least at first; no inspiration, no joy. No feelings of anticipation when trying to catch my visions for 2015.

That´s when a group of ladies asked me to make a workshop and help them create their vision boards for 2015. “Oh no”, I thought, “I haven´t even created my own yet, and I honestly feel a bit stuck”. But that is the trick with these or any process. They DO work, but only if we DO them! And I had been stalling in “no action land”, which is exactly what so easily happens when what we need the most is to simply begin. And keep going with small steps. We humans can help each other so much, and sometimes asking someone for help might be the very thing that will help that person too. Good to remember!

IMG_4042

So, inspired by the request I gave it a go with my own visions. It helped. I found out several things that I had not seen, that explained the resistance I felt. I saw that I needed to give myself permission to search for new ways – with business and with other areas of life – to really ask again from scratch what route it I wanted to take, and to be willing to make some changes. To say more boldly NO to things that no longer fits, even if it looks like it will generate an immediate income. To insist on working from a core of joy and service, rather than pushing myself into areas that clearly steals my energy. To dare not meeting expectations, my own and others. To dare listen, every day, to my intuition, which has proven over and over again to be a most trustworthy tool.

Slowly but steadily the fog lifted, and I began feeling that childish anticipation again. If I can, I know you can too! You can read more about creating a vision board RIGHT HERE.

Or, if you live nearby (Sjælland, Danmark), you can join my New years Vision workshop on saturday the 24th of january. A FULL day of diving into you own visions, using some wonderful creative tools like writing, movement and “Vision Boarding”. Sounds good, right? So, if you live in Denmark, this might be for you, I would love to meet you there:
