What is your Love Delivery?

For the first time in my life, I felt gratitude for the simple fact that my heart was beating. I was standing in the shower and suddenly it got to me, what a vibrant life force it holds - my body. That I have to breath my self, every inhale and exhale, but that the heart truly is the motor of life itself. I felt that I wasn't a day older than four, and that the power in being a child, unaware of it all, yet aware of it all, is a true blessing and STRENGTH. Children are free from mental prisons like neurotic concerns and over analyzing. I really got to taste that state of mind, of being all natural and free. Like a little girl. And as I stood there I felt that courage comes from this very heart shaped life force. And everything sort of zoomed in on the point where I'm at in my life now. That there is only that. What lies behind is dead, what comes, I create.. In the now. Minute by minute. That what we do with the time that has been given to us is precious. The sum of my life's actions - have they've been focussed on serving, helping, assisting others? Spreading love and kindness, hope, empowerment, and inspiration?

I don't know. I do know that making raw desserts are, by far, the most meaningful activity I've ever engaged in. Why? Because I feel that I can deliver something so simple, that everybody can understand, from young people to old, all across the globe, no matter the religion, political view, gender, language or education. The feeling of Worthiness. I'm Worthy that cupcake, because I want it, desire it and crave it. 
It is so simple, yet powerful. The enjoyment of abundance, and desserts are the Queen of abundant symbols, the dream of every inner child. 

It got to me then and there, that this is my gift, this is what I do (for a living too). This is my love contribution. My Love-Delivery. Of course I know how to do other things than just raw chocolates and sweets, but this is what I've chosen, my way to express good vibes. Of course I'm curious to know...

What is your Love Delivery?

Maybe you already know the answer. If not, try searching in your interests, the things you do that comes naturally, with a flow, where you are the most happy. Your gifts, talents and longings. When you know your unique Love Delivery, you owe it to yourself and humankind to spread it widely, loudly. It is your responsibility to share your gifts with the world, you didn't get them to keep them for yourself you see..  

If you don't know your Love Delivery: 

• Is it something that is within peoples comfort zones, or challenging them to take the leap?
• Is it something you're doing in celebration or is it a more serious matter?  
• Is it something creative or technical? Communicational or nurturing? 
• Is it something that activates new parts of your personality, or is it in line with what people assume you to be?

6# Do I have the supporting and loving network to back me up?........................................

If enough people start focussing on their sharing love.. Soon we will have a Brotherhood of Man - what we never succeeded to create here on earth. We went to the moon and back, but never really understood that we are Family, spiritually connected with all and everyone. And that if you hurt someone else, you hurt yourself. I think that knowing your way to contribute, is a key to create this Brother/Sisterhood and Family that we lack so greatly. Where's the tribal warmth? 

In my case, there's a deeply personal story behind my Love Delivery. In one of my former life, I was a prostitute. A curvy, redhead named Claire. An Irish gal, who emigrated to USA with her family, only a little girl then. They fled because they couldn't stand the poverty, the fighting in the muddy streets and the cold rainy weather (in that time you cold die from pneumonia). And I remember so many details of this past life. How the mud smelled, that the clothes from the ankles down to your feet where almost always wet and smelly (that's why I absolutely hate having wet feet today). Many years later Claire started working in a saloon in the states as a prostitute and soon became the star with regular customers... She had great dignity, but no shame. Foremost she was a motherly figure that cared for wounded men, boys in men's bodies, and many of her customers just wanted the warm, comforting and nurturing qualities that she offered.

The life of Claire has a particular impact of my life today. I'm deeply thankful for her life choices and experiences, being so open, carefree and confident. But most of all her sense of sinful pleasures. Silks, perfumes, lace, live music and all the details of luxury and FOOD!.. She was no saint, so she was free to fully engage in the pleasures of life, and food was certainly one of them.

Her appreciation for the simple things in life, is something that is of a great deal for me today. Life it self is so complicated, that the small things sometimes is the only thing consistent and concrete. When I was 20 and studied public health science at the university, I could never dream of doing what I'm doing today. Cupcakes?!?! But what about the starving children in Africa??! :) Of course I'd love to save each and every one of them, but the desserts are calling me in such an instinctive way that I have to answer the call. Delivering sweetness to people, making them stop for a while and use their senses for sinful enjoyments.. is one small way to ease the burden, to color their lives with a bit of magic!

Also when people write to me, saying that they've planned on making one of my recipes but want support because they're insecure weather the cake/pie/cookies will turn out fine or not, and I talk them into doing it.. And when they later come back to me saying: IT WAS A TOTAL SUCCESS!!! I feel like a proud mother, that this person found the courage to take a risk and won the glory of success, even if only making a dessert. It's the feeling itself that's important, not necessarily what you do to claim it. What ever lift your spirit, contributes to your sense of self. Because with a lifted spirit, you can be more of what you Are, can spread the gifts you carry, to others.  

And that's really what courage can be... To follow your heart, your instincts and desires. Being more of YOU. Courage means to do something you are shit scared of. ...Or. To be all that you can be, in the name of Love. Being courageous doesn't have to involve nerves and adrenalin. It can simply be to follow your natural instincts and desires and not compromise with what your heart is telling you.



This is a few examples of what I've created in the raw dessert kitchen for the upcoming recipe ebook filled with Raw Candy!

Take great care and grow your Love Delivery to others!

Karolina, I absolutely love your posts, and especially ones on your spiritual insights. Your awareness of your past life has intrigued me - is your past life something you've always remembered? Or something you decided to discover? I'm very interested in past lives as I believe you can learn so much about your spiritual journey! x

Hi there lovely! Thank you for your appreciation! No, I started remembering them as I begun my spiritual more aware. Once I realized that previous lives are stored in our memory, and when I went for a regression therapy session once, I started to pick up on certain parts of my personality that seemed a little off the pattern.. Yet not. Then I read a book about previous lives and well.. I started going thorough 15-20 of them to search for emotional and mental blockages. And it's amazing what powerful tool this is, once you recognize the fact that you DO remember. I helped Jakob a week ago.. I said he had a blockage in his throat. And I looked closer to it and fount a previous life he lived as Tom Smith... A very interesting man (!) You sort of just have to be open and receptive to pick up on the information :)

Love~

oh what a wonderful post!
You are so right on spot! i agree fullu that we should follow our blis and that is the most ebautiful way we can contribute to the whole and to bless it with the gifts that are given with passion and love.
I have seen experiences of some of my earlier lives, but not whole lifestories, just smaller moments, like being a young girl in Chinawho runs away from an arranged marriage, rinning awa to live in the mountains among trees and wild birds and animals.
I believe that my Love Delivery is music. I have felt the spirit of Jimi henrdi and jim morrison in me so maybe i was one of the in my previous life ?:)

keep on ding you amazing job, spirit sister!

Sending Love and hugs!

Åh, vad roligt att hitta en svensk sån här sida! Jag brukar surfa runt på mängder med utländska superfina och mysiga bloggar med nyttigare och naturligare (och oftast raw-)desserter. SÅ inspirerande och mycket smakrikare än "vanliga" bakverk.

Love Raw ~ Karolina said...

Kul att du hittade hit Gloria! ^__^ Du är jättevälkommen!

Nelly: Tack för tipset! Men jag använder inte sånna maskiner i raw bakning, annars är det ju en super-duper bra maskin om man bakar mycket ^^

Ha det gott!

Hittade din blog för ett par dagar sedan. Väldigt imponerande både andligt och gott! Är inne på levande föda men har hittills inte tagit steget fullt ut. Lagar ofta både Raw godsaker och mat. Söker också efter mitt eget sätt att leverera kärlek och din post var verkligen inspirerande och gav riktig hjälp. :) Bor i USA sedan många år tillbaka men har mina rötter i Sverige. Tack för en underbar blog!
