Happy New Year!! And a whimsical chocolate recipe.

2012 is coming up. I'm not up for new year resolutions.. You only tend to break them in the end. Making a Revolution is way better! The difference between a resolution and a revolution, is that a revolution is a process with no physical goals, no strive for the perfect, only for the inner satisfaction of completion. 

My new years Revolutions

• continue to eat intuitively,
• travel more, 
• exercise more, 
• move houses,
• inner work / outer work, 
• read more interesting books, 
• do more crafting,
• spending lots of time in nature,
• getting out of my comfortzone,
• following my heart to 100%. 


My new year Wishes

• I want to help build heaven on earth. 
• I want to invest my gifts in the service of others.
• I want to inspire people to love the small things.
• I want to empower people to see their inner value and importance. 


And, some new years goodies!




These super food chocolates has a little bit of everything in them. It's a creative concuction made by me and Jakob (he's the one responsible for the banana and the shredded coconut). If you don't want banana in them, or shredded coconut just skip it :) (In Swedish further down).

Melt the Cacao butter and Coconut oil, put in a bowl and blend all the dry ingredients. Cut the Banana in slices and pour the chocolate in silicon forms. Add some Banana and Macadamia nuts on top for decoration. Put in the freezer for about 40 minutes and they will be ready to be eaten!

I made a 2012 inspirational collage, that sums up some of my dreams and focus for the coming year.

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? 

-----> To find out, write down the answers to some really important questions:

1# What I always loved to do as a little kid:..........................................................
2# What are you good at? ...............................................................................
3# What are your unique talents?......................................................................
4# What tempts you?....................................................................................
5# What is it that do you do with ease, and can openly give, that gives you more energy? ..............................................................................................................
6# What are your passions?..............................................................................
7# If you could change something in the world, what would it be?.................................
8# Picture the most Grand version of yourself. How would he/she spend the day?...............
9# When do you feel the most satisfied?..................................................................
10# If you could have a conversation with your self 15 years back in time, what advice would you give to yourself to live life more fully?.............................................................................


If you know your Love Delivery: 

• What can you do to maximize and turn up the volume of your Delivery?
• Can you teach it to others?
• Could you turn it into your everyday focus?
• Are you willing to change your life to fully embrace it, or do you want to do it in your spare time?
• Are you Delivering to your community, your country or world wide?

-----> To Activate your Love Delivery, write down the answers to some really important questions:

1# I'm I open to the flow of my Love Delivery, do I let it impact me? Or is it shut down?..........
2# What key decisions do I have to make to get started?.................................................
3# Do I have faith in that I will be guided to where I need to be as long as I'm open for it?........
4# Whats in the way for me to take the leap?.............................................................
5# Is there any problems I need to solve in order to start Deliver?.......................................
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!

Raw candy ebook update, and a happy announcement!

Happy monday folks!!

I have some happy news for you: the new webshop is crispy fresh, got some flirty make up on and that great bright smile. Me & Jakob are smiling too, as newly baked partners in this adventure, we feel blessed to walk this path of being in assistance and serving by providing some of the worlds greatest foods, greatest raw recipes and inspiration for anyone wanting to practice Self Love. Because Love is the new black, the missing piece of the world-puzzle that everyone with some sort of gift can give her or himself and the rest of the family of humans. There is noting more important than using ones gift in serving of humanity, and serving oneself to become a sharper tool for that. If you keep reading you'll find out what your gifts are.. 

And talking about walking one's life path. Do you know the number of your life path? When I found out years ago, that I was a 9, so much fell into place! For example, 9's will never be satisfied if their efforts is not focussed on helping, sharing, serving others. In terms of care, giving inspiration, knowledge, leadership or plain love. 9's are filantropical visionaries who want nothing more than to see a better world with more Love. So that's what we're creating with the new website, that so far, is a webshop in swedish. There will be an english website later on with lots of inspiration, information and things for you to engage in, in your traveling down your wonderful life path.

We want you, to love yourself more. Engaging in that healthy narcissism, and dynamically dance back and forth, using yourself as a source of wisdom, love, hope, power, knowing, from where you can scoop inspiration and energy, and let it spill over to others in all that you do. Dancing from the deep source within yourself, where you find a guiding light, and dance back again to the outer world where it happens, the making, the connections, the transferring of information and decisions, where it takes physical form and manifests.


The new Web Shop!! www.therawdessertkitchen.se

This is what we need to understand now: that we are all Tools in the name of Love, in different shapes! We don't need any guru, rules, religion, leader - we only need ourself. We are unique dots, but connected to all other dots out there, and together we can create the most beautiful pattern. Do you see how strong you actually are? Do you believe it? Live it? And, you don't have to be scared, because there is no failure. There are inner conflicts, contradictions between inner forces, challenges, but never failure. We are here to wake up, and like Wall.e, we walk around like sleepy heads in the awakening process, because being human is one of the hardest things. It's hard because life here is all about combining the physical with the non physical. In this you have to be equipped with a strong faith. Faith is the guiding light here on earth. Scientific proof only give you so much, then faith must take over. But the beauty in this is that we every day have to face the not-knowing (what's going to happen in the future, what other people think or their hidden motives, how they are going to act, how your acievements will fall out...) And we put a great deal of effort to assume and try to figure out things in the confusion that it is to be human.

But the only thing you can control, is your priorities of your day. If you have a clear vision of what it is that you want, you form your priorities with the vision in mind, and putting one foot infront of the other will, unmistakably take you there. The hard part is to figure out what you want. Of course you already know you want to be that beautiful Tool of Love, but how will it take your unique form???

For me, making (rather silly) desserts, are a symbol of hope, amusement, delight and pleasure that I'd love to feed the world. There's no pressure, no achievement or performance, no nothing that you have to do. Just take the cupcake and bite in to it, enjoy it. So simple. So fantastic. It's a quiet revolt against the over ambitious and neurotic western world we live in, in the shape of a silly cupcake with pink frosting. We all need a little bit (or a lot!) of Glamour to feel that it is all worth while, don't we? ;)


Calculate your Life Path Number

If you're born on the 9th of June 1963, first add together the month, day and year, than add together the individual digits of the sum, until you get one single digit.

The year: 1963 = 1+9+6+3 = 19 + 9 = 1+9+9 = 19 = 1+ 9 = 10 = 1+ 0 = 1  
Month: June, 6
