We are almost at the end of a 9-year-cycle.

For me, being born in 1980, this is the 4th one coming full circle…

As I was crying last night, going through this past year – which has been one of the toughest ever in so many ways, yet a wonderful magical one – I found myself lost between gratitude and hopelessness…

These last few days it’s like I’ve re-lived everything that has happened, not only this past year, but this whole 9-year-cycle, in a fast-forward-way. One moment super happy, the next one immersed in sorrow…

The conclusion, if any, is that it all needs to go through the system fully, so it can evaporate and resolve, so I have space for the new. But, it also reminds me that I am so much more in contact with how I feel these days, than I was 18 years ago, or even 9 years ago. That is such a treasure!

Through Meisner-technique, yoga, snowboard, surf, theta-healing, becoming a silversmith, painting, playing with my god-children, living in different cultures etc, I have met myself, seen myself, experienced myself more fully. For that I am forever grateful.  I feel free.

I’ve practiced to dare more, to be courageous, to go with the feeling all til the end and sit with and experience whatever’s there… anger, happiness, curiouity, sadness, resentment, joy, fear… the list is endless and I will keep on keeping on until the end… learning more with every breath and through whatever is mirroring me – people, art, mother nature…

For so many years I was this strong person that could do everything, deal with anything, overcome anything, build up anything, learn everything… I still am, it’s just that today, I have merged that with my super sensitivity more. I trust my intuition, I dare to feel along the way, to surround myself with what makes my heart sing.

I know now, when things feel good, when I’m scared of the unknown but should keep going, when I am not supposed to be somewhere or stop doing something that doesn’t serve me or anyone else anymore…

My soul, spirit, essence, has grown so strong, that whenever I try to go against it, my body resists… that’s why I can move from NY to Stockholm within 5 days… There is a knowing and trust that is physical AND spiritual at the same time… the IS-ness, whether one likes it or not, feels uncomfortable with it or not – IS there! I’ve learnt that surrender and acceptance is key for me…

I truly know and trust on a whole new level now. That trust is a gift. That knowing an asset. They´re treasures. Something magical that cannot be explained. I have lived, I’ve gained these treasures through everything that I cry and laugh about, through everything that has hurt me, everything that has filled me with love… That’s why I cry and laugh within an instant these days…

As we have the New Moon tonight and as we step into the 1 of a new cycle (next year 2+0+1+7 = 1 + 0 = 1), I made a list last night, of  big and small things, that I wish for my in life. Things that I wish to focus upon for the start of this next 9-year-cycle….

As I read through the list, I realized that there was a common thread, a seed, a core value underneath everything… The quote from Nayyiirah Waheed above, reflects that…

I wish to meet more people on the bridge… people that dare to welcome the unknown, even if it means walking slow short steps with tears in their eyes, they’re still willing to keep going… because there is a knowing and a trust within, playing like a gentle smile upon their face and their eyes sparkle of curiousity and love glitters in their eyes…

2017.

I pray.

May this be the year.

May this 9-year-cycle be laid upon a foundation of extraordinary love.

welcome to “DDsthlm”

April 29th was the opening day for my little haven “DesiréeDesignSTockHoLM”! I can’t believe I finally have a space for everything I love to do!! After all these years living across the world in suitcases and temporary places, it feels amazing to have all my things under the same roof! I can paint, make music, practice yoga, make jewelry, have workshops and lectures, throw events…pretty much do anything I want, AND what people in the community want! cause that’s really what I hope DDsthlm to be: a creative center for people that gravitate towards art, wisdom, love, yoga, design, freedom, music, abundance, curiosity, healing, authenticity… a space for all ages to cultivate creativity, raise awareness, share, to be who we are to the fullest extent in a beautiful way.

my rain…

Today I woke up early. Could have slept in, but destiny had set an alarm.  Some friggin clock rang somewhere… First I was pissed off. Why today? I’m off, I can sleep however long I want – for once!!!

I woke up in the middle of a dream. I hate when I can’t close the stories and layer off slowly. I wanna finish that world and slowly transition into embracing the day. These cut-offs…I feel naked all day. I’m more vulnarable, I feel “revealed” in a sense…plus every other time, I become more doubtful than ever…

First world problems. Yes. I know. Yet something weighs my soul and it is on days like this I can release and let go…
I don’t have any energy to resist…

Thank God for healing arts, for eternal ways to let the soul express itself…

STOP CRYING”

Some people say ”stop crying”.

When they say ”stop crying”,

”stop crying”,

they don’t know what they´re talking about.

It’s a phrase learnt from society,

based on fear & discomfort,

a wish that everything could be,

“fine”

 —

Each and every tear,

is a step closer to heal something…

I say

CRY BABY CRY

You will never regret a tear

it’s a release.

The soul feel ease.

If anyone tells you different,

it comes from resentment and bitterness.

 —

Sometimes it’s better to shut up,

let the tears fall one by one.

Heal.

One tear at a time.

It’s ok.

After all,

this is a good day.

LOVE & LIGHT

DesiréeDesign: DD Jewelry

I can’t believe how fast this fall passed by!!! This close to the end of the year, I can’t help but reflecting over the past four months: I moved to Florence, Italy, in late August, to fulfil one of my childhood dreams, to study jewelry design and learn Italian! At Lorenzo De Medici I’m finally doing the 1-year certificate program in Jewlery Design/Making.

I’ve always made jewelry, even during the busy years working as a dancer/actress/singer/TV-host, I sold some of my creations in the store “Tjalla Malla” on Södermalm in Stockholm. Doing it “on the side” has been something I’ve always wanted to change, to take it to the next level and create my own brand. The dream has been to one day master soldering, different metals, setting stones, refining my drawing techniques etc. so I could create the DD-pieces I had in my imagination. Up til now, it has only been a matter of finding the time to do that… I believe that,  just like any artform, TIME is important, in order to find the personality in artistic work, as well as mastering the SKILLS needed! I believe that those two ingredients are crucial, to be as free of an artist as possible – just like Maxwell sings in one of his songs: “In order to be it, you gotta be in it”. I’m so happy I finally took the time to do this…

This first part of my 1 year in Florence, has been amazing! Everything from History of Jewelry, to Gemology and Rendering techniques, have filled my days! It’s been fun going back to school – I only wish I would have more time for homework and more time in the studio LOL – never thought I’d say that about homework!!!. It feels amazing to add the art of Jewelry Making, to my artistic palette. I now truly see why Jewelry Making has been so important for me – it is one of the art  forms I practice, that live on forever, something I can touch and see til the end of time… Over the years I’ve come to understand that each artform/expression is fulfilling different pieces of my soul. It’s one thing to be on stage in the theatre or on stage singing, another thing to do live TV, something else to choreograph or write songs, yet another thing to create interior design and make jewelry…they all stem from the same passion, the passion of creating and letting the life force live freely…the result though, gives different experiences and satisfactions within…

Below are a couple of my DD creations. You can find more on my instagram @desireerosborg or in our LUNA COLLECTIVE WEBSHOP.

———

I need to breathe fresh air
Hear the wind
Feel the morning mist cover my face
Touch the mountain and the texture as I climb to the sky
The scent of wet forest
The dew on my clothes as I sit down
I need a good swim in the sea, to feel my body cleansed
All these thoughts dissolved
All impressions on my skin fade away
Pure freedom
I’m reborn

———

I woke up earlier than I thought today.

Just had breakfast.

Now drinking coffee, writing, reflecting over life and these past days…

I’ve felt so agitated and slept weird lately…nightmares mixed with beautiful dreams.

A lot of cleansing going on in my subconscious.

During the daytime I’ve been irritated by so many things, people, places, crowds…

And I’ve been supersensitive to sounds, energies and words…

 

My mom always tells me that when I start to dislike things that I usually love – I need to slow down…I’m getting drained.

She is so right, that is a great sign for me, to retreat and sit back…

That is a beautiful moment to be cherished, before moving on…

Contemplating…

Recharging…

I need some quality-time by myself, with my heART and with my loved one…

 

It’s been a little too much lately.

School, plus a lot of moving around since I was in between apartments, the financial situation was a bit tricky…

I had a skin-reaction to some bites that turned out really nasty…

You know, a lot of things at the same time…

We all have those moments now and then, it’s part of the circle of life…there is night, there is day, there is ebb and flow, seasons change and we grow…

This too shall pass.

 

I am in a major transition in my life right now.

I’m skinless, so therefore I need to take more care.

Prevent myself from harsh environments, people, words, venues etc…

 

Life is life, with all the colors of the rainbow.

I’m gonna sit back for a while and just watch that spectra.

Life is beautiful.

I am so grateful for what have been gems to learn from, what is right before me this very moment and what is waiting around the corner…

 

Become your dream
