Is there a different way? 100% The hedgehog Senses Need

Is there a different way?

At the moment I am reading When: the Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing by Daniel H Pink. It is an interesting read into the science behind energy, time and timing. As of now I am trying out two things from the book. The first one is tracking my days to see how my mental and […]


I am in this storytelling group that meets once a week which I am finding extremely insightful. It’s about learning how to tell your own story through life and what might be inhibiting you from potentially not living your most 100% genuine life. This week we had to write down the groups in our lives, […]

The hedgehog

“Don’t come near me today”, I say to my husband. I am angry, sad and all in between. For no reason and all reasons. It’s one of those days when I can’t stand to be in my own skin. After listening to a podcast about our beads, a friend of mine asked “Do you ever […]


Restrictions leads to creativity. With a reduction in external stimuli and a change of pace with my own work schedule for the first time since lockdown began I have entered today into the melee of the bread and cake making masses. I made a cake with my 6 year old niece. It was the first […]


Since working through the book The Artist’s Way I have become on high alert to notice moments of synchronicity in life. Johanna had mentioned the book The Heroine’s Journey to me a few weeks ago, that she had been recommended it and that she was getting a massive amount from it. At the time, much […]


My bead for the day was a red, round wooden bead. As I took it out of the jar I held it between my fingers and thought: blood. I thought about the blood that runs through my veins, how it needs to oxygenate in order to be vital and support my body. And I thought, […]

Wild and Precious Life

This week was a momentous week when my beads and I were united after 7 months apart. It felt like reuniting with an old friend when I carefully unwrapped the jar with my thousands of beads in it.I haven’t yet had a chance over the last few hectic days to count out how many beads […]

Reboot several times a day

My energy levels have been low for a while, and one day I hit a point of no return when I replied “Tired” for the thousand time to the question “How are you?”. I felt sick of myself. This is not who I am. I want to be alive and vibrant. I definitely don’t want […]

Back In the Bead Blogging Saddle

It’s been years since we’ve written, blogged, about the beads and feels a moment of strangeness to be back in the bead blogging saddle. But in these turbulent times I have found myself looking at the reason why we started the bead movement in the first place, things like taking control of my reactions to […]

One step at a time

I am writing this to you from my house just outside Stockholm. A lot has happened since we last wrote a blogpost here, but we never stopped our bead practice and our weekly talks. This practice of picking up a bead a day, looking at the bead for what it represents – a day in […]
