Thank God for Loney Dear

Last weekend I went to an E P I C concert.

Mr. Emil Svanängen a.k.a. Loney Dear shared his magical music in Hedvig Eleonora, a beautiful church from 1737, located in central Stockholm. Saturday’s concert was just as magical as the first time I heard him at Way Out West in Gothenburg last year. I’m so glad my friend Andy introduced me to his unique music! Loney Dear is a tremendous composer, beyond comparison. I just love how he creates realms that noone else can – whether on a festival or in a church, he creates magic in the moment! Mr. Emil Svanängen is one of Sweden’s most precious treasures. Thank you Loney Dear for a wonderful concert!

“I Dissans Tid”

 Some things in life are difficult to believe unless we’ve got visible proof.

It makes it hard to grasp something when we can’t see it,  feel it, or touch it.

Nevertheless  – at night the stars become visible to our eyes, even though we can’t see them during the day.

For those of you that have followed my blog over the last year, know that it’s been a huge transition for me.

Little did I know back in 2002, when the first seeds were planted for this journey, that it was gonna take a whole decade to fully manifest the transition in me. Looking in the rearview mirror, I think “not knowing” that time-frame was for the best – cause I might have bailed and chosen the easy way out.

This shift, of getting to know who I am and balancing the “reasoning” and “intuition” in this wolrd, has been a trial-and-error-experience. Crossing the line, being in balance, trust the soul’s path, dealing with sickness and injuries, let love in, overcome tresholds, refining and defining who I am as I pave the path in my life… it’s been a beautiful and rough period that have moulded me and prepared me for the shift this year, 2012…

This last weekend was very emotional and odd in so many ways. Beautiful signs here and there showing me that I’m connected to my self, yet new obstacles popping up to delay the journey’s destination and not moving too fast forward. New “tests” making my life a roller-coaster of love-fear coming and going.

With tears in my eyes, I found a poem that My Mom sent me about 6 months ago – “I Dissans tid/In Dissan’s time” (Dissan is my nickname…). She wrote it when my everyday was a true struggle and I didn’t wanna live anymore. This poem means the world to me, it brings me comfort and it reminds me that the feeling of trust deep down within, exists even in the darkest of times. And even if I can’t see an outcome of things, or a result – if I trust that inner seed of love and passion, over time I’ll experience the coal becoming a diamond, or watching the caterpillar blossoming into a beautiful butterfly…

The poem was written in Swedish, but I’ll do a translation in english below…

I Dissans tid

Som ett smycke

av renaste guld

är ditt liv

i detta nu

 

Berlocken

ditt livs besmyckning

dess form

dess ädelstenar

slipas

putsas

för att en dag

pryda

DIG

 

Kram

Mamma

In Dissan’s Time

As a jewelry

of purest gold

is your life

in this moment

The charm

your life’s embellishment

its shape

its precious gems

sublimed

polished

to one day

adorn

YOU

Hug

Mum
