A timeline overview of my journey and website content between 2009 – Present

My website has been around for a decade and a half, and naturally, I’ve undergone significant personal growth and evolution during that time, so this Start Here page will be helpful to any new readers so that they can get an idea of what they can find here.

If you’re new here

A quick note before I get into everything: Many people find me when they seek information about the spiritual awakening process, and since my articles lack dates, many readers assume that’s still what I’m about, but it’s not where I’m at anymore.

Guidance for individuals undergoing a spiritual awakening (‘enlightenment’/ego death/dark night of the soul) process is no longer available. If you find yourself currently on this path and are facing challenges and experiencing mental and emotional turmoil, then please check out my older articles/content dedicated to the awakening process, they will be very helpful to you.

My teachings and work is in the field of transformation of consciousness

It’s progressive, evolutionary and highly transformational with the focus on all things relevant to consciousness, energy vibration/frequency, flow, and self-empowerment, individuality, and fulfillment.

Alignment is the key to everything in life.

— We’re always ‘manifesting’ what we’re in alignment with, both individually and globally.

The laws of the universe are constantly at work, and you can make them work for you in consistently positive ways through a shift in consciousness and by changing your dominant energy vibration.

Our true nature is unconditioned consciousness, and you can mold that consciousness in whatever way you like. That’s what awakening really is and means; that consciousness shifted back to its original nature and you came back home to yourself.

Once you have discovered the power of alignment, you’re free. It’s the most empowering experience of life that you can ever have and the answer to all your prayers and desires.

It all started in 2009..

Actually it started way before that, but that was the year I converted my free blog to a real website.

My journey though, to become who I am today, really started when I was in my late twenties and went to rehab:

My Drug Addiction Recovery and Healing Journey

It’s over two decades ago now, and that was the time in my life when I became a certified NLP (neuro linguistic programming) Life Coach and Reiki Healing Master (Teacher), among other things. But I won’t go into that period here (the decade that followed after I left rehab), I’ll only focus on my website timeline on this page so that you can get an overview of it.

With this page I invite you to come with me on this journey down memory lane..

Starting with the year 2009-2010

It was then that I moved all my articles from my free blog to a real website, and my focus at that time was very much about the Law of Attraction, but also about other spiritual and personal growth topics.

In 2009 I published my book “Energy Awareness – How to use energy to change your life” and I remember I was so excited about it.

Many things had happened in my life during the first decade after I left rehab, and in 2008 I think it was, Life put me to live in the middle of nowhere in Norway while I was going through the most difficult times in my awakening process.

Things were not good for me financially so I had to live on welfare, and in the beginning I resented living there, I actually hated it (and I rarely use that word) and felt that I was being punished by God and that I was being held there ‘against my will’.

I wanted freedom more than anything in the world.

Whatever I did to try to claw myself out of the situation, such as applying for jobs all over the world, I was not able to move or get away from there until the day came years later when Life decided that it was time for me to move. When I was (evolutionary) ready for it, Life opened up a new path and chapter for me, allowing me to move forward in my life.

I share a bit about that here in this article and in the comments below the post:

Why aloneness on the spiritual path is a blessing

P.S. regarding my older articles: From early on, I decided not to edit any of them. I wanted the articles (and other content) to stay as they are and not alter any of them in order to preserve their authenticity and realness.

The awakening process was brutal

At times it was pure hell, but it was also full of incredible beauty, deep connection, and times of absolute bliss too.

In 2010 I also published a PDF booklet called “The Power of Aligned Thought – How the mind works and how to use it”.

Then in May 2011 I was interviewed and got that kind of publicity for the first time and that was an exciting time for me and I felt that things were moving in the right direction for me.

I was also co-authoring and featured in different books by other authors as well at that time, and I was getting interviewed and participated in Personal Growth Summits and things like that, so it was exciting for me.

I was still living in Norway and on welfare, but finally I started experiencing some forward movement.

But, I was also in the midst of an awakening process, and it unfolded parallelly with my personal growth and evolution..

So, while all the personal growth stuff was expanding and I was having breakthroughs in that area, I was also simultaneously having a lot of spiritual openings and experiences of awakening and they (the two different paths) eventually came to a clash.

Year 2011

In mid-2011 sometime I think it was, I was invited to be a key speaker at two big seminars in Malaysia and I was so excited, everything was paid for and arranged for me and I thought it was going to be my big breakthrough.

The topics I was going to speak about had to do with the Law of Attraction and creating your own reality.

Then, in the midst of all that – BOOM! I had a huge awakening experience that changed EVERYTHING.

From that moment on, my life shifted completely and took a whole different direction, so I had no choice but to turn the whole speaking gig down as I had awakened to something that was the total opposite of what I was asked to speak about.

So from around then on and in 2012 or so my writing changed to be more about spirituality and the awakening process (enlightenment/non-duality type of spirituality).

Year 2012

In 2012 I went through my first process of awakening from the concept of God.. Which again changed everything for me.

I ‘broke up’ with God and became an atheist for a while, which I also shared about here on my website.

I went through the awakening process in regards to releasing false beliefs about (the concept of) God once more in 2015 when I lost everything and became homeless. (More about that later.)

I went through a lot of internal changes at that time in my life as you can see when you read the old articles from back then.

I don’t remember how long the atheist period lasted, but I remember that I used the word more like a statement for myself as it allowed me to break free from the person I used to be to other people.

What I mean by that is that I “had to” become an atheist for a while to make it clear to my ‘audience’ about who I was (or had become) and where I was at in my consciousness.

In March 2012 I wrote this article, and I know many people are experiencing these kinds of things nowadays (more now than what they did back then) so it’s very relevant to many people:

Our Relationship with God Changes with Awakening

My mind started to really get emptied out around mid-2012

I was isolated and completely closed off from the outer world (except for when I had to deal with the government/social security people) and I spent every waking hour doing inner work, walking in the woods, ranting, feeling blissful, going through hell internally as my ego self was unraveling, as well as cultivating and feeling a deep and profound connection with God.

– That was one of the most intense times in my life. (Much of what I know many people are going through today.)

Here’s an audio from that time, it’s from 2010-2012 sometime, where I talk a little bit about what was going on with me:

Surrender To Life (+ mp3 with me)“ (I haven’t listened to it since then and don’t remember what I’m sharing in it.)

Most of the articles I wrote in 2012 and 2013 had to do with spiritual awakening and all the different processes you go through, both the hellish stuff, but also the blissful stuff.

Awakening is a death and rebirth process, so yes, lots of pain involved as you can imagine, but also periods of pure bliss.

Ok, let’s move on to more fun stuff, shall we! 😊

Moving forwards to 2013-2014

2014 was the year when I moved to Spain – and MY GOD, was I excited about that!

In the fall of 2013 I received a vision in one of my meditations about moving to Nerja, a city in Costa del Sol in Spain that I had never previously heard of. (I had lived in Spain some years ago before that, but in Costa Blanca, which is a different part of the country.)

The moment the name came to me in my meditation, I ran to the computer and Googled it, and lo and behold, there was indeed a place called “Nerja”, and in that moment I knew that I was going to move there.

I felt guided to it, as if Life/the Universe was saying that the time had come for me to move now.

I had no clue how to make it happen though because I was still living on welfare at that time and didn’t have much money at all (and I knew no one in Spain) so I took a huge leap of faith, trusting that things would work out for me.

It was time for me to leave, I knew it, and the moment I decided – when I said Yes to it – things started to unfold very quickly for me and doors were opening and the path was made clear.

In February 2014 I landed in Malaga and my new life chapter could begin

Life was pretty awesome and surreal and I was ecstatic; suddenly I was living in the freakin’ postcard and the pictures I’ve only seen on the Internet, – I was literally in paradise, that’s how it felt, and I loved it!

In 2013 and 2014 I continued to write a lot and in the winter of 2014 I also started doing Teleclasses and continued doing that throughout the most part of 2015.

In my personal life though, I was about to go through one of the biggest crises I’ve ever experienced in my life.

In the spring of 2015 I lost EVERYTHING

I lost my beloved cat (he became sick suddenly), I broke up with the few friends I had (we just didn’t align anymore), and I had no money left to live on, so eventually the day came when I had to move out from my apartment.

All that I had left in my name that day was 9 Euros, that was all I had.

Here’s an article where I share a little bit about what happened:

Remembering Last Christmas (Personal)

I became homeless and would be without my own home for the next two and a half years

During this time I continued to write and share about the spiritual awakening process.

I remember asking (or telling) God to open a door for me, one that would allow me to stay in Spain because I was determined to never go back to Scandinavia and live on welfare ever again!

I said to God that I would rather live on the streets than doing that, and so a door opened for me and I was able to move in with a couple of people who took me in for maybe 2-3 months or so.

And from then on more magic just followed; – I was even given free apartments to stay in (by people who I had never even met!), and all sorts of miraculous things started to happen.

Most of this period in my life was awesome, although I yearned to have a place of my own that I could call ‘my home.’ It was my dream and something I wanted more than anything else, as living out of a suitcase the way I did was also exhausting.

Sometimes I was able to get a longer stay somewhere but mostly it was one week here and three weeks there, never knowing where I would go next. But by then I had already done a massive amount of inner work on releasing fear, so whatever was left of any worries, they completely vanished when I saw how the Universe provided for me, time after time, and in the most amazing ways.

I lived for free in a beautiful hotel for example for longer periods of time, and in many beautiful villas and houses along the Costa del Sol as I was doing house and pet sitting as a way of having a roof over my head.

In August 2015 I decided that I would go to India for six months

I felt a calling to go there, but it was also a conscious choice. I yearned for freedom — just being able to be by myself and do my own thing — rather than hopping from one place to the next, doing house and pet sitting.

Again I was taking a huge leap of faith; I didn’t have enough money to last the whole trip and was trusting Life to support me financially as I followed the flow and went with it, and then more miracles and magic unfolded for me.

I’m telling you; if you get a nudge to do something or go somewhere; Do It! Trust your intuition.

You will be astounded of how Life takes care of you and provides for your every need!

Things just unfolded perfectly and the money and resources that I needed always showed up when I needed it.

I was traveling in India for 5 months, and my journey there began in January 2016, which I also shared about here on my website.

In the summer and fall of 2016 my writing changed a little bit again

I started to share about transformation and more personal growth related topics that I was more passionate about.

Empowerment, and topics like alignment, synchronicity, flow and so on, but also mixed in with spiritual awakening as I was not entirely finished with that part of my life just yet.

When I came back to Spain from India I continued with the house and pet sitting for a while, but it was different this time, better, you could say. I lived and stayed in amazing places and for longer periods of time instead of jumping from one place to another and being one week here and two there. Now I stayed in beautiful homes sometimes months at a time, which I LOVED.

At the end of that period it didn’t even feel like I was doing house and pet sitting anymore, it was just friends helping friends and it worked out perfectly for everyone; They got to go on extended travels and holidays, and I got to enjoy living in their beautiful homes and enjoying the company of their wonderful pets that I came to love so much.

In January 2016 I wrote this article:

How do you survive on the spiritual path if you don’t have a job?

In 2017 I wrote this, starting to come to the end of my spiritual awakening sharing:

Enlightenment is not a state

And in the fall of 2017 I finally got my own place!

(There’s a whole synchronistic and miraculous story to that too.)

So I was without my own home for 2.5 years or so, between the spring of 2015, and the fall of 2017.

In the fall of 2017 and in 2018 my writing had shifted more into the things that I’m passionate about today, and I also slowly transitioned away from giving spiritual awakening guidance as it no longer resonated with me.

What my journey has taught me is a lot, but the main thing that I’ve learned, from my own direct experiences and challenges, is that there was never a reason to fear or worry. Never.

And I mean this for everyone. It’s the Truth.

There is a power at work in your life, and you may not believe it right now, but it actually wants you to be happy, to find fulfillment, to thrive, and to have and enjoy everything you could ever dream of.

It wants you to feel loved, connected, and safe, – And the thing is, that only when you come into alignment with this Truth can you really enjoy life and feel supported in everything you do – without ever having to worry about anything ever again.

Fear is what blocks the flow to all of life’s goodness, and all the other false and limiting beliefs that constructs our reality and which makes our experience of life small and restricted.

Circling back to the Law of Attraction and creating our reality — Where it all began!

Life is all consciousness and energy and when you have come into alignment with Truth (unconditioned consciousness), then the whole Law of Attraction thing makes much more sense too.

Life unfolds from within, and when you’ve removed that which stands in the way for your alignment, then the struggle ends and life starts to flow.

I had to go through all the things I went through and do all the inner work that I did in order to break free from what was limiting me so that I could become the me that I am today — It was my “Hero’s Journey” that I was meant to go through.

Abundance, security, and everything else in life comes from within, it flows from our own consciousness, and that was the greatest gift that I learned from losing everything. It was all part of the Divine plan for my life and work that I was destined to come here and share.

There you have it, a small timeline overview of my journey and the content that I’ve shared here over the past fifteen years! 

I’m grateful for the challenges that shaped me, the growth experiences that transformed me, and the wisdom that emerged. Realizing the power of alignment has been the greatest gift I’ve gained, and it stands as the most profound realization of my life.

Always trust your intuition; it holds the key to uncovering the next steps on your unique path. You finding my website might signify a connection that goes beyond mere coincidence, — Your inner being will tell.

Welcome, and may this space serve as a source of inspiration, empowerment, and guidance for your own unique Hero’s Journey.

All the best, always,
