    Turning Ageing into an Advantage

    Turning Ageing into an Advantage

    Ageism is as present as racism and sexism, it's time for a change.
    In my new episode I turn 9 judgements and/or fears about ageing into an advantage, or I at least question their truth.
    What if the fear of getting old has more to do about the present moment and or level of happiness and self-love today, than of getting old?
     
    The definition of a midlife crises:
    "Midlife crisis refers to a phase in a middle-aged person's life (usually between the ages of 35 to 65) wherein they feel compelled to face and/or reevaluate their mortality, confidence, identity, and accomplishments."

    Social Media Addiction - Clubhouse

    Social Media Addiction - Clubhouse

    Today’s episode is about social media addiction and the effect Clubhouse has had för me. After four weeks on Clubhouse, I feel stressed, drained, hung over and a bit depressed.
     
    I’m not the person who hangs out on social media 24/7, but with Clubhouse I made an exception, I felt this was “my platform”.
    Finally, voice, the spoken word, real conversations and no longer a written monologue!
     
    Link in my bio, From Darkness to Light, available where you normally listen to podcasts, the episode is called Social Media Addiction - Clubhouse.
     

    I will follow up the podcast with a room for sharing and reflection probably tomorrow, on Clubhouse of course…! So if you are on Clubhouse and would like to have an honest talk about what Social Media does to us, join me.

     
    Love you!

    Corona as a Guide to Healing

    Corona as a Guide to Healing

    What if Corona isn't a curse, but a guide to healing? Did you ever consider why children are unaffected and why some of us get extremely ill? Why doesn't the virus treat as equally, why does it distinguish between blood types and underlying conditions? What i the virus actually is a sign, a guide that points to a weak spot or area inside us? Maybe it's a clue that we have some healing inside to do.
    Listen to my latest episode around Corona and healing and how we can prepare our physical and emotional beings to better sustain and manage catching COVID-19.

Amazing podcast

Shama has a beautiful way of speaking to my soul! I relate to her so incredibly much.

Thank you for sharing, Shama!

Family constellations

I just listened to the episode on family constellations, and as a clinical psychologist who studies and treats families, this episode was very biased toward the estranged parent (unsurprising, since the host is that parent). It’s important to remember that the parent must change - to wait for the child to return, you have to show the them that it’s safe to return. The idea of one being “superior” or that the child should “bow down” can be a weapon that parents use against their children. I hope this was just a translation issue for Shama, since these words connote a serious power imbalance - that of a master to a servant. I see this dynamic in my practice all the time. These sentiments can very easily be used to minimize the child, their feelings, their experiences. Parents must remember: you had a life before your child. Your child has only known life with you in it. That responsibility should come with a great sense of humility, which is something that was absent from this episode.
