Hiya!Today is my birthday, but since so much has come into the right place inside of me, I figured I'll give you a ReBirthing Cake instead, to celebrate all of you who cherish all kind of constructive change in your life! Change requires guts, and acting on guts is totally deserving of cake! So here it comes, I hope you enjoy it, we sure did! Rebirthing is a breathing technique that claims to heal suppressed emotions such as anger, fear, sadness, etc. Rebirthing-breathwork teachings state that it can increase the client's or solo practitioner's human potential, inner peace, and mental clarity. The practitioner can manage the challenges of life more easily. Those who practice rebirthing-breathwork can gain greater insight into the human condition and the purpose of their existence, a greater sense of their personal relevance to the world. The main breathing technique consists of not pausing between inhaling and exhaling. According to practitioners, this causes a build up o...
Finding your Path and a simple Chia Pudding
Konichiwa brothers and sisters! I hope you are well and shining.The journey continues.. If you read my previous post about cracking up and being a new born, this post is about how to move on to find your path.I had yet another intense weekend, spent with the psychic / channel / healer Michelle Phillips in Stockholm on one of her master workshops. Boy did I get what I was looking for! We spent roughly 20 hours meditating, deleting old programmings from or bodies and systems that block who we really are and got rid of a lot of old karmic stuff. Before the workshop I had a private session with Michelle where she went into tree past lifes that was blocking me. In all of the three lives, I had left my family to live an unusual life. One as an orphan girl ending up as a prostitute in a saloon, one as an italian catholic girl wanting to be a musician (which at the time was totally unacceptable) and one in Greece as a high priestess living in a temple where I taught stud...
The recipe for Cracking up and Crackers.
Hi friends! It's been a while :)I've gone through some massive inner change the last couple of weeks, unraveling a great deal of old structures that has been in the way for me. I had reached a point where it needed to be removed, leaving me rather empty and confused to be honest. You know the feeling of having a fresh new start, but it doesn't quite feel as ~whoopi doo~ as it's "supposed to"?Without revealing too much of my voulnerable inner micro-super universe, I'm in the middle of some ruthless cutting of the cords that should be done a looong time a go. Being over empathic surely doesn't make it easier. But at the point where I was before I made the descition, I couldn't carry on compromising my Truth. Let go or die. So I let go, and here I am. A new born who has no clue how to do IT. Hehe, I need a foolproof crash course in how to go on after being purified of some "demons" without knowing my new self even a tiny bit. At the same time it's all I know, it's the ver...
Raw Easter Special: White chocolate Eggs in a coconut Nest (Nut free)
Hi friends! I have something cute and exiting to show you right in time for easter. A lovely meeting between a crunchy raw cookie birds nest and delicate little white chocolate eggs. I highly recommend you get your hands dirty and make these, for you don't want to miss out on the sensation to put one of the nest with the eggs in your mouth :D But before I show you how to make them, I'd like you to meet the co-creator of this raw dessert: the talented young lady Malin Sönegård, who came up with the recipe for the nests. Recently graduated from the Matthew Kenny academy, she's got a good portion of creative ideas up her sleeve. Sweet gal! Over in my kitchen, I made the eggs to go along with the nest, for a perfect raw easter treat. We're both very pleased with how the result came out, and I'm sure you will be too, especially if you like the sweeter kind of sweets.Karolina & Malins raw FågelbonFågelbon, blir ca 10 st.? 2 dl Cocosflingor? 1 dl Cocosnötsmjöl (alte...
Some scenes of our life up north. Spring is finally arriving with butterflies, cute flower buds and bumblebees (have you tasted bumblebee honey? I can honestly say that it is one of the most delicious sweetener that there is. Though nothing beats agave.. :)On our way to ship a super food order today, I couldn't resist taking a shot into the shiny wheel of a gorgeous black 1960's Mustang in the street. Jakob in the sun.I'm over the moon mad about icon paintings. Funny though I got my very own just a couple of days ago, featuring Mother Mary and the baby Jesus, that welcomes us every time we enter our home. As you know I'm no more christian than a muslim is, but I talk to Jesus / Esu / Aton (same guy) in my own way. I found these golden icons in our church, extremely well made, and I just have to have dozen of them now! ...Why not have one in the kitchen? On the extra sweet side of life, I'm experimenting with raw english toffee now *tricky one* but came up w...
No-stress Tahini bites! (nut free)
Hello fellow sisters and brothers! <3Yesterday I made Anti-stress-chocolates! Did you know that the aroma of chocolate soothes nervous, tense and anxious people? I could sure use some of the beneficial goodness from super foods now (doing my book keeping among other stuff). So I went into the kitchen and came up with these!They are loaded with ingredients that makes you relaxed and soothes the nerves:? Cacao: Lowers the blood pressure, reduces stress hormone levels in highly stressed people and helps people with anxiety to improve their metabolism and improve gut microflora, while reducing stress. Raw cacao powder contains PEA, which is known as "the molecule of joy"and makes us present, positive and focussed. Another interesting plant chemical found in raw cacao is anandamide, that releases serotonin which makes us blissful. If that wasn't enough, raw cacao also contains an amino acid that makes you euforic. In other words, raw cacao is a perfect defense against stress!&nb...

Balls of Steel for Heroes
Happy Tuesday folks! This is a post to honer all of you disobetient heroes out there. (I even made a little recipe for you). Thank you for your balls of steel. The world would not spin if everybody played by the rules, stood in line, waited for their turn, controlled their emotions, kept quiet, never rocked the boat, never challenged what is socially accepted. There is an acute limit of free thinkers in the world, so thank you for being one and doing things in your own unique way. I'm all for healthy disobedience of course. No one never have to obey any rule, that is not aligned with their own personal Truth. These balls have ingredients that supports the inner Hero in you! ?

Simple Chia pudding Pie
Hi everyone! Yesterday Jakob wanted to make a raw dessert, so we went into the kitchen to throw something together. He was a bit shaky, asking for directions :) I'm not much for giving all the details when I show how to make a raw dessert. You learn best by the discipline of trial & error, and if you get some space to figure things out for your self, your intuition is with you and that's when magic really starts to happen. We didn't put any coconut oil in the filling this time. Instead we decided to make a chia pudding filling. For those of you who is new to chia, the seeds swells in liquid and forms a gel, a bit like flax seeds. Chia serves as a stabilizing agent you can have a lot of fun with! This is not the fancy sort of engineered raw pie you'd make to impress your mother in law. It's an impromptu pie for all of you who love this category of raw desserts. Few ingredients, basic flavors and no fuss :) You can vary this pie in a million ways, using your fa...

What to do a gloomy day..
This is what it looked outside my window when I woke up this morning... Gaaah... Even though I have my hands full of upgrading our webshop (making it available for international customers too), I do have a list of things that will brighten up a day like this!? Take care of your morning! Charge your day with positive energy by letting the hours in the morning be the most important to you. How can you fill yourself with a high-on-life-vibe? Do you need to give yourself a really slow morning, reading the newspaper, or go out for a brisk walk? ? Put your favorite music on. I love Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, David Gray, Daniel Lemma, Priscilla Ahn (try the 'A Good Day' album) and as you know John Mayer. People with great voices, classy, intimate and warm. If you're into guitar music, Jon Gomm is a must. ? Nothing makes you feel fresher than exfoliate your face and body with a great scrub. This is my recipe that I've used for years and years, it costs barely no...
Get your Valentine's heart glowing!
Följ min blogg med BloglovinThis is the post we have all been waiting for... The pre-Valentine's Day post! I had about twenty ideas of cute desserts to make (I mean this IS the highlight of the dessert-year according to me), but I fell for this one. A classic raspberry cheesecake in a glass, with a fun chocolate heart. To me, eating your dessert with a spoon from a glass, adds to a more luxurus experience. Something that brings the memories back to summer, a first date, that bubbelgum excitement and innocence.Can't say we are really big with mousse-desserts like this or sundaes in Sweden, sometimes swedes get suspicious when something is a little too good (like an overwhelmingly gorgeous sundae). Then they pop right back into the default mode of root vegetables, wet mud and clogs. It just has to be a little awful (which reminds me of a classic Monty Python sketch..)King Arthur: Old woman. Dennis: Man. King Arthur: Man, sorry. What knight lives in that castle over there?&...
Hi You! The tooth fairy came and took my wisdom tooth today (with a little help from a surgeon dentist), so I'm only allowed to eat liquid food for a couple of days now. I'm usually a great nibbler and love all things crunchy, so having liquid food is only exiting for a short period. Already my breakfasts and evening snack are smoothies, so having it for lunch and dinner too only makes me anxious to start eating solids again (I can't wait to have a big bite of my favorite apple). They say that the third day is the worst, pain wise, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed it won't be worse than what it's been so far. Yet these are the kind of situations when you have the chance to see things in a new perspective. If there is something you can't have or if your health is not granted, you suddenly find yourself over the moon grateful for what you do have. A lesson of gratitude is always good! And I figured it only fair to share my wisdom with the tooth fairy, she can have t...
Glitter & Stars
Remember how I wrote that it is our time now, we who know how to find glitter on a gray pavement? Man... Did I drop my jaw when we went out walking the other night, and I found decoration silver stars on the ground!! (no I didn't put them there, haha). I can only interpret it as a sign that it IS our time now. How Grand is that?! Everything is going to be fine.. Gaia will survive, the rainbow warriors won, illuminati lost, Heaven on earth is here!Playing: David Gray, Slow motion.In my aroma lamp: Lime, lemon, coriander, ginger and litsea cubea. Tea: Cloudberry, sallowthorn, strawberry and blueberry blend. Have a good morning, day, night everyone!/Karolina~
Your Strategy for 2012
Hi members of the Galactic ground Crew, the Keepers and Care takers of Gaia ;) I hope all is well and that you are walking down a life path that is in alignment with your own truth. I'm re-posting the two latest eLetters I've been sending out to all of you who are subscribed again. Both as a reminder, and for you who are not subscribed and have missed out on the last mini-series where I went through how to get rid of the things that holds you back, and guidance to set new targets and grow new dreams.The statistics says that a good 86% of people make New Year resolutions, and only 14 days later, 30% of them have already scaled back on the promises. After a few months, only 12% are still striving toward the goals they set in January. This is why you need a strategy. The ones giving up, probably didn't have one. Your Strategy for The New Year: This is all very basic, and for a lot of you, this is not any news, you've already done the work. But you can ...
Intuitive eating and swirled Blackberry Ice cream
Hi sweethearts, I've missed you! How's life?? I'm enjoying the first month of the new year. New beginnings, action, planning, change.. Things I love, and ever since I can recall, I've always loved the energy of January. As me and Jakob is definitely found in the file "workoholics", as we have two small business to nurture. Some readjustments in our lifestyle would be welcome. Working til 4 in the morning, getting up at noon, for a couple of months now (though always with a smile, we love our lazy mornings), we could definitely benefit from more balance in our life. Earlier I was a little bit of a "health and order" natzi. I didn't ate a nano particle that weren't "right", and I had excellent routines. I didn't realize then, that I had prisoned myself with my high health ambitions, and that it was liming me and also boring me to death. Then Jakob came into my life with different routines and it gave me the blessing of seeing myself from a distance. Balance....
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 ...
Our Rococo-christmas tree decorated with ribbons, feathers and butterflies. Hi!! And Merry Christmas!How's your holiday celebrations coming up? Mines been a bit up side down really. Christmas eve turned into a process (mainly me letting go of old emotional toxins), but having a horoscope with a "pluto personality"always gives me intense and deep emotional processes. I'm used to it, to say the least, and appreciate that the pluto influence forces me to tackle things that I otherwise would not. Sometimes that's life and as long as you become wiser and more humble, it can only be good, having a process or two. Anyhow... Christmas morning was way better, with a new understanding of yesterdays emotional findings, AND a fruit salad with a killer super food-chocolate sauce. Fruit salad with a Super food Raw ChocolateI like to go classic, using banana, apple, pear, orange, passion fruit, melon and raisins. You can not make a decent fruit salad without that ...

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'...
Raw candy ebook update, and a happy announcement!

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 ...
Upcoming raw candy ebook!
Hello brothers and sisters! A quickie before I start working in the kitchen making more raw goodies! I've been starting to work on a raw candy ebook. I thought I'd might as well do it as my cookie and snack phase seems to have gotten a real grip on me now.. I was also planning on making some raw treats as christmas gifts for my family this year so why not turn it into an ebook? For this year I have a christmas challenge:? I'm going to make all of the christmas gifts with my hands. No shopping except for things I need in the making. ? I'm going to make only beautiful things that calls to the hearts and souls of the receiver, nothing practical.? I'm going to take the time (that I don't have) to fully embark in the crafting for the pure joy of creating and giving, also as crafting is such a wonderful meditation. ? As much as possible, making the gifts out of old things (so far, I'v got three lovely old books I'm going to turn into a true work of art lat...
The Ultimate Comfort Cookies
Happy wednesday my Friend!Bright as a button today are we? ...Or maybe not? Either way I got one perfect excuse for you to roll up your sleeves and spend 15 minutes to make these cookies weather you want to celebrate an awesome day or pick your self up from a not so good one. The ultimate celebration cookies or comfort cookies! They are chewy, of a cookie dough consistency and full of heavy chocolate flavors. Who can resist that?! Oh yeah, they are healthy too!Made of prunes, pumpkin seed flour (that you can easily make), some virgin coconut oil, raw cacao, agave/honey and vanilla - they are easy peasy to make.Health benefits of Prunes:[Prunes are dried plums]? Contains a unique phytochemical (plant chemical) called neochlorogenic and chlorogenic acid. These are antioxidants that are damage-preventing, neutralizing a particularly dangerous oxygen radical. Prunes also prevent oxygen-based damage to fats. Since our cell membranes and brain cells consists of fat you can image the impor...
Climbing higher and Pecan & Fig bars!
Namasé beautiful beings!We went climbing today, my first time. Exiting and quite scary with my first attempt to climb to the top. I've always thought that "that's nooo game for me", but once you're up there, you see it from a new angle sort of speak :) As I'm a bit afraid of heights, this was a challenge. I could feel a panic attack coming, so I wasn't up for pushing my limits. But before we left I had another go and went almost all the way to the top. Having done this, something sublime falls into place, as I'm planning on taking my raw dessert making to the next level. Climbing was a symbolically important ritual that I will carry with me in my planning and creating.Looking at the dessert work I've done lately, I can clearly say that I'm in a "cookie & snack" phase now.. :) Today I made these Pecan and fig bars that turned out really good! I love a good, moist bar with lots of flavor. The crisp, crunchy ones are great too, but if you are really hungry and out and runni...
Happy 11-11-11 and Chia heart Cookies!
Happy 11-11-11 day to You!Did you know that you can change your DNA by simply exposing your mind to high vibrant words? If you are familiar to the work of Mr. Masaru Emoto, the japanese scientist who photographs ice crystals after the water has been exposed to different words, like "love", "gratitude", "peace" and other high frequency words, forms the most beautiful and well structurued ice crystals. Keeping this in mind, and the fact that our body is up to 70% of water.. You quickly realize how easy it is to put the entire you in a different wavelength, when working with words. This fascinates me, and I'm trying to sneak in good vibe words in my daily life (as well as affirmations). Filling up with not only physical nutrition, but also frequency nutrition is equally as important. How it's done? Repeat a sentence with good vibe words to re-progam yourself, like "I am Healthy", "My life is a Miracle", "My Dreams comes True", or what ever you need to fill up wit...
What to do with the Carrot Pulp-Cookies. Nut free recipe!
Hi there beautiful!! How are you enjoying autumn so far? I was up "early" (for me early) this morning, finishing my carrot cookies with raw chocolate "hats" that is left on top of the cookie to melt in the dehydrator. It's nice to start using the dehydrator more frequently now when it gets colder, my head is full of mouth watering ideas :) I'm home alone now for a couple of days, fully enjoying my own company, as I am a true loner, at least in periods. This is Goddess-time, to reconnect with my own pace, freak dancing in front of the mirror in the bedroom, listening to all my favorite music LOUD, and just caring about my self all day long. And yes, eating up all of these cookies. I made a carrot cookie recipe, considering the carrot-pulp issue: what to do with the minced pieces of carrot that is left after juicing? If you have a dehydrator, it is a great excuse to use it for pulp-cookies, whether it is nut pulp or veggie pulp. But of course, you can make these cookies without havi...
Let's make a better world, shall we? Let's Occupy our own dreams!
Aloha beautiful one! ? This post is about how we can use our vision to create a better world, by focusing on what we want.? I've been creative in the kitchen and made a special cake you can read more about further down..?..and made a whimsical lamp with Jakob.We have an Occupy movement now, starting at Wall street. People are angry with the system. They blame "them" that made it all go wrong. I love that people are starting to wake up, it's not a day too soon. The world is a deeply unjust place to live in for the majority of people. But stop a while and think about it. Can we adjust this just a little bit so that the movement can have a stronger impact? If we put all our focus on what's wrong, in anger, frustration even desperation.. Than that's what we create. We know that we're angry for sure, but what would happen if we sat down, using that strong desire and started focusing on what we want? Addressing to the "leaders" (= puppets in the game) in anger, only makes us Und...
Hi the beautiful people! It's autumn!I'm back again after a while of working on the new newsletter and doing some inner processing. A lot of things has happened. I'm throwing out some of my things, creating space and finding new parts of my self (that's wonderful by the way, you should try it!) For instance, try getting rid of old clothes you wore during the peak of your life. They don't fit you anymore, as you are holding on to the past every time you wear them. If you give them away, you just might se another you in the mirror! I gave away a rather girly skirt I used to love, only to find out how much this skirt had hold me back by just sitting in my closet (!) I've done these wardrobe feng shui missions before, but never have I seen so dramatic changes. A pink, girly skirt just isn't me.... This month of october is packed full of interesting earth changes, and I gladly welcome them! What ever happens, needs to happen. For me it feels like years of inner pressure is be...
Same recipe, another shape!
Isn't it strange, how something can taste different if you change the shape of it? I made these cute little lime tarts from the original 'Lime Pie' recipe, this time without the whipped cashew cream and lime.This is the greatness of raw desserts; you can remake, recycle, reinvent and upgrade everything! As you can't really go wrong in making raw desserts, i.e. if you happened to add a little too much of one ingredient, than you only need to add a little more of another, you practice problem solving, something we greatly lack in the modern society. Instead, we are driven by the black-and-white thinking that if something isn't perfect, it must be bad: the toxics of the left brain, that really gets us nowhere..When you start doing your first raw desserts, you notice one thing - that you have to use the creative side of your brain (the right brain). In our western society, this is an unusual mental stimulation, as we most of the time are forced to place our focus in the ...
