THE SCHOOL OF LIVING LIGHT

Empowering women for decluttered lives and boundless dreams.

The deepest tragedy ...

... for a woman is not that she is single or that she is not making money, or that she is alone.

 

The deepest tragedy for a woman is that she has lost faith in flow.

 

When she is in her flow, she is resting in her core. Her essence. 

 

Life feels like a river.

 

She still has her challenges but she flows around them like water does around rocks and fallen branches.

 

She knows her way, naturally.

 

And she’s certain that no matter what happens, she is heading towards the sea.

 

Without her flow, she is like a compass without the needle pointing north.

 

As a result, she starts taking care of everyone else, except herself.

 

Carrying the world on her shoulders.

Trying to figure it all out alone.

Thinking too hard.

 

Over-working.

 

Aching.

 

She thinks the pain is a result of not having what she needs in an existing relationship. Or not making enough money. Or not having this or that. 

 

So she starts looking for “the one”. Working harder. Purchasing stuff to fill the void.
 

A woman who has lost her flow will almost always attract a man who is going through a “mid-life crisis” where everything feels like too much, including her.

 

A woman who has lost her flow and

a man who thinks that only in solitude he is free

are not a good match.

 

This is why a good relationship starts way before you meet each other.
 

A woman who has lost touch with her essence will almost always choose a job that eventually leads to burn-out.

 

A woman who has lost her flow will almost always have a home that feels neglected, with no fresh chi but piles and piles of unsorted things begging for her attention.

 

It is only when she decides to return back to her core that she remembers her radiance, her worth and her strength. 

 

But the choice is hers. 

 

No-one can make that for her.

 

And no-one ever should.

 

This is HER life. 

 

The only life she can ever change. 

 

What would YOU do if you were her?

I created The Sovereign Woman Way™ for the woman who is committed to HER WHOLE-HEARTED JOY, no matter what it takes to get there.

Because Her joy is everyone's joy.

Because Her healing is everyone's healing. 

Because Her liberation is everyone's liberation.

WHAT IF YOU COULD FIND YOUR WAY BACK TO FLOW – AND TO A HEALTHY TRUST THAT THINGS ARE ALWAYS WORKING OUT?

​WHAT WOULD BECOME POSSIBLE FOR YOU IF YOU FULLY OWNED THE FACT THAT YOU ARE LOVE MADE VISIBLE? 

IF YOU WEREN'T AFTER "THE PERFECT LIFE" BUT LIFE THAT WAS PERFECT FOR YOU, FOR YOUR ESSENCE?

I'M GOING TO TELL YOU A SECRET ...

Your life is waiting for you on the other side of “shoulds”.

Your love is waiting for you on the other side “playing it safe”.

Your liberation is waiting for you on the other side of “I can’t”.

YOUR ESSENCE IS YOUR TRUE NORTH.

The reason you feel stuck is NOT because something is wrong with you. Far from it! The reason you feel stuck is similar to why your bathtub backs up with water, stagnates and grows bacteria and mold – it’s not because something is wrong with the bathtub itself. It’s because there is too much hair in the drain and the hair has created a blockage. Similarly your energy field gets blocked with negative childhood memories, resentment, beliefs and emotions. This will keep you stuck in a behavior and thought pattern that is restricting your ability to live a life you truly want. The good news is at its core, each pattern has a simple beginning. There’s no point trying to heal without first going into the root. And this is what the School of Living Light is all about. 

Simplicity

Distillation

Alignment

I created The School of Living Light – the unique proprietary decluttering system and online community – around the following three pillars: Spirit. Space. Self.

It's a sacred chamber where women come to uncover their essence, declutter their lives and go after their dreams.

THE SCHOOL OF LIVING LIGHT
INCLUDES 3
MAIN PILLARS:

SPACE
(HOME + BODY)

Our home is the most immediate, obvious and unused resource we have to improve our lives. Our home is an extension of us – whatever our challenge, our house knows about it. This challenge has manifested itself somewhere in our living space. And when we identify where that is, we can address it. Change the energy of it. Move it. Contain it. Energize it. Magnify it. This is pure alchemy. Home alchemy. When we learn to listen to our house, enhance the auspicious areas of our home and remedy the inauspicious ones, we will make our home our biggest ally in all our creations. 

Anything unresolved within you shows up somewhere in your home (usually closets) or in your body (health issues). Confronting these areas will help you activate your dream space – and your dream health.

SELF
(MIND + HEART)

It all starts with us – the self. The self comes with a mindset, belief systems, conditioning and viewpoints. Rapid change is only possible if we change our perception. Transformation is only possible if we take the necessary steps required for change. So we can never by-pass ourselves, as tempting as it sometimes is. This applies to taking responsibility for our actions. We understand that if we buy something we alone are responsible for letting go of it one day. If we hurt another, we are also hurting ourselves. If we take on a client we don’t feel chemistry with but we need the money, we pay the price later. We pick up our own trash, figuratively speaking, and otherwise. This is true freedom. This is living light. 

SPIRIT
(INTUITION)

Your True North is your inner sense (or essence / innocence), a place that your internal guidance system is always pointing to. You get there by listening to the voice of Spirit – your Intuition. You’ll learn non-dogmatic and practical tools on how to better hear the little voice inside that is always right. Not sometimes, but always right. You establish a daily spiritual practice that feels right for you. Your daily sitting or movement practice is something you learn to look forward to. In the School of Living Light, you are not a body trying to get more spiritual. You are here to experience yourself as who you truly are, a Spirit in a body, co-creating your life.

WHEN YOU KNOW YOUR ESSENCE, YOU:
 

  • Become a clear vessel for your innate gifts.

  • Understand and embody sovereignty on the deepest level.

 

  • Know when to say “no” – and when to say “yes”. Powerfully. In life, in business and in bed. 

 

  • Accept and adore every inch of YOU.

 

  • Only take what is yours.

 

  • Feel less overwhelmed – you no longer carry the world on your shoulders. 

 

  • Have a wardrobe that expresses and amplifies your essence. Become your own business card.

 

  • Love your home and every room in it. Design with an intention. Easily let go of everything that does not reflect your essence.

 

  • Develop an unshakable trust in yourself.

 

  • Let your intuition lead.

 

  • Are no longer motivated by fear but truth – not matter how inconvenient this truth may be. 

 

  • Know what your body needs, moment to moment. And then give it to yourself.

MY STORY

A one-way ticket is not always the way to change your life but it was mine. 

When I left my home country of Finland in 2001 and moved to New York City with only one luggage, a tourist visa, $600 to my name, no home and no job in sight – the typical story of the "American Dream" – I thought I was living lightly. 

I soon realized that although I didn’t have many material possessions, my load was heavy.  

I kept looking for men, money, God and happiness in all the wrong places. I got in trouble. I didn’t think my master's degrees and certifications were enough to get the job I wanted so I started working as a stripper in a gentlemen’s club. 

I learned a lot.

It took me many years to unpack my emotions and beliefs about myself and the world. I dove deeply into personal development work. I stayed in temples and visited ashrams. I realized I could get lost in that, too. But I had amazing teachers along the way and for that I’m forever grateful. 

I learned how easy it is to leave myself, thinking the answers to my burning questions are out there.

I learned how easy it is to check out, leave the space and run away from pain, discomfort and shame.

I learned how easy it is to turn away from Spirit, and ignore the only voice that truly matters: my intuition. 

 

I started slowly gathering my power back from where I had left it – from people, places and things. I learned about my soul charts (Akasha) and began the clearing of some deep-rooted, soul-level misunderstandings. 

I studied fasting and participated in native ceremonies with Dr. Gabriel Cousens and completed a 40 - day fast on my own that was a life-changing spiritual experience for me. 

I started integrating my inner and outer worlds. 

I started creating a business that fit my essence, and I stopped trying to make my essence fit my business.

I stopped looking for love outside of myself and met my life partner, my vibrational match.

I allowed myself to do nothing. 

 

And let me tell you, that changed everything. 

And I’m here to share these teachings with you.

IMAGINE

THE DAY

WHEN YOU

 

  • No longer create your relationships on the sand of inauthenticity and self-sabotage, but on the mountain of your own true being. 

  • No longer end up spending your precious money and time on things that are just a cover up. 

  • Finally accept the fact that you always had everything it takes.

  • Create a sixth sense for things that feel off.

  • No longer be seduced, but guided.

  • No longer feel the hole, but the wholeness of you.

  • No longer be living a lie, but a life.

But first we just need to dissolve the thing that is blocking you, the place where you still, after years and years of personal and professional work, doubt yourself.

This won’t happen overnight, although it could.

You will not only step into the river of your own life, but you become the river.

 

You are finally free.

You are finally here.

 

From no-where to now-here.

 

Come with me ...

SCHOOL OF LIVING LIGHT

 

This is the scene in your movie where everything is about to change. The catalyst.

All the eyes are on you. You understand that life as you know it can not continue as it is. 

The future has not been shown to you yet.

It’s time to move the story forward.

You are required to simply

TRUST.

SAY YES.

JUMP.

In the School of Living Light you will:

 

  • UNDERSTAND THE DEEPER MEANING OF CLUTTER (IN ALL ITS MYRIAD FORMS), AND HOW YOUR PERSONAL VERSION OF CLUTTER COULD BE STOPPING YOU FROM TRUE FULFILLMENT

  • RAISE YOUR AWARENESS AND GAIN A NEW LEVEL OF INSIGHT ABOUT YOURSELF, YOUR ESSENCE AND YOUR INNATE GIFTS.​

  • ACTIVATE YOURSELF AS A POWERHOUSE FOR CHANGE, AND RISE ABOVE THE STORIES YOU HAVE BEEN TELLING YOURSELF.

 

  • CREATE AN ATTITUDE SHIFT THAT ELIMINATES ALL RESISTANCE. ​​

  • DEFINE WHAT'S TRULY IMPORTANT TO YOU – AND WHAT'S NOT

 

  • RELEASE ANY WITHHOLDS, RESENTMENT AND OUTDATED BELIEFS YOU HAVE ABOUT LIFE, LOVE AND RELATIONSHIPS 

  • REWIRE DEEP–ROOTED PATTERNS AND EVOLVE PAST THEIR LIMITATIONS 

​​

  • STOP SECOND–GUESSING YOURSELF 

  • STOP DATING TO JUST FILL SPACE. OR START DATING TO STOP HIDING.

  • FINE–TUNE YOUR INTUITION

We use the Clutter Wheel™️ to see which one of the ten areas of your life are the most cluttered. Each class, exercise and assignment is designed to help you distill and get closer to your essence.

 

This essence will become the heart of your life and the cornerstone of your business, your relationships and your home.

We use the book Living Light as our resource in the journey toward self-sovereignty.

It is the agreement
your soul made
before coming here.

EACH TIME WE COME TOGETHER TO LIGHTEN THE LOAD AND DISCOVER OUR WINGS.

We have one main goal:

 

To remember who you are.

 

When you surrender to life from that place, you can not fail. You are living your purpose – the reason why you came here. 

 

Your essence is your bigger why.

A sweet reminder ….

Living Light is not about NOT owning comfortable and beautiful things. Living Light does not mean we take life lightly. It means we carry only what is ours, only what moves us forward and what aligns with our essence – in all areas of our lives. 
It’s about right ownership.

When we live lightly, we do not possess the Earth, we walk lightly upon Her. We are guests here.

THE SCHOOL OF LIVING LIGHT IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO JOIN IN A DISCUSSION ABOUT EVERYDAY ACTIVITIES WOMEN CAN BEST ENGAGE IN TO MAKE THEIR CHOICES MOST EFFECTIVE IN THE TRANSFORMATION OF THE SOCIETY.

The School of Living Light Is For

Woman Painting Pottery

THE WOMAN WHO

wants to bring ALL of her into EVERYTHING she does. She is hungry for authenticity. She’s simply done with roles and protocols. 

 

She’s unedited yet refined. 

Bold yet  

subtle. 

Fierce yet loving.

Hands Holding Beads

THE WOMAN WHO

wants to fall madly in love with the holiness of herself. She knows that’s the only way to ever fall in love with the holiness of another. She’s not seeking her other half. She’s here to find her “other whole.”

Meditating on Beach

THE WOMAN WHO

is ready to slow down to achieve more.

Seashell

THE WOMAN WHO

knows she's not fully free until she knows the answer to these two questions:

 

"Who Am I?" 

The question is, how do you want to feel day-to–day, moment-to-moment? Stuck with a feeling that something is missing? I don't think so – you're here to channel your ESSENCE and POWER with every breath you take, am I right?

  • 1. How does the School work exactly?
    Inside the community you’ll learn to see your life’s challenges as opportunities for enormous growth, and as a catalyst for deep personal empowerment. Each month you’ll peel away a layer that’ll take you closer to your True Self - that part of you that understands and sees the bigger picture. When you reside in the truth of who you are, you will experience flow and you will create a life that is in alignment with you, with your very essence.
  • 2. I’m really busy. What’s the time commitment?
    More than a time commitment, this is a “presence” commitment. You are required to be present with yourself in a new way. The real commitment is inwards, not outwards. It's up to you how much you engage but in general I recommend creating a nurturing self-care practice that is designed to help you feel more connected to your True Self - and this can include a meditation practice, a movement practice, decluttering or beautifying your surroundings some other way. By joining, you are asked to BE more, not DO more. This creates a shift in vibration, which is fuel for growth and for bringing your dreams into reality.
  • 3. What is each Living Light Teaching Activation about?
    Each class is designed for the women who show up – in other words each class is tailored to what's present in the field. In general, you will get to define the areas in your life where you feel powerless or lack inner authority and find ways to bring that energy back home to you so you feel lighter in your body, heart and soul. Some of the themes include beautifying your surroundings, decluttering your home, cleansing your body, energizing your body, dating coaching, intuition development etc. We'll also use my book "Living Light" as a resource and learn to activate the 11 principles in our lives through practices and inquiries inside the weekly Book Lounge call.
  • 4. How many members are in the community?
    I'm not able to say what that number is going to be by the time you join us – new members can join anytime. This community is forming now (February 2024). I hope you will be one of them!
  • 5. What are your credentials for this work?
    I got certified as a Spirit Coach© in 2011 and went to a self-development school for seven years that held a core concept that everyone is a Spirit regardless of their past experiences or labels and that everyone holds the keys to their own evolution. What many of us are missing, however, is the permission, knowledge and ability to live consciously from Spirit. The goal is not to become more “spiritual” but to experience yourself as who you truly are, a Spirit in a body, determining your path and creating your own life in harmony with something greater. I’ve also been initiated in Usui Reiki, certified in blindfold trance dance facilitation, holistic health counseling, fasting, massage therapy, Classical Feng Shui and I hold a Master’s Degree in Sociology. My biggest school though has been my own radically wild path in love and life and my passion for the masculine and feminine teachings. I also had to work through my own childhood wounds and most of them required clearing chakras 1-3. I still use these tools daily myself. I'm also an author of my newly published book Living Light: The 11 Principles of a Sovereign Woman.
  • 6. What is Spirit Coaching and how is it different from traditional coaching?
    As a Spirit Coach®️ I I won’t give advice but will teach tools so you can access your intuition, learn to read what is in alignment for you and what is not, clear your own field and use energy to enhance your personal power. Both coaching approaches are valuable, one is not better than the other. Generally speaking the main difference is that a Spirit Coach: Can see and hold the real/authentic you as spirit, as energy, beyond your personality Uses intuition moment to moment to determine the best approach for the client, whether it be a tool, a method, a practice, meditation… Holds an energetic container for the client to blossom into Divine Self during the calls and the time in between. Looks spirit to spirit at the blocks that need to be cleared addressing them at their root cause. Holds the highest possibility for the client to walk in this incarnation. This is what it means to be “spirit-led.” Can recognize programming and interference from outside energies. Sees from the perspective of spiritual “contracts” so we can align with what we agreed to before we incarnated
  • 7. I have a lot of deep unprocessed trauma. Is this still a good fit for me?
    In this case I recommend you work with a qualified trauma therapist during the time in School. I’m not a therapist nor trained in trauma work. I want to make sure all your needs are taken care of during our time together.
  • 8. How do I get started?
    You can sign up by completing the payment on this page. If you have questions, and would like to have a chat, please fill out this form and I will be in touch to book a quick call. Love,
  • 9. What's the refund policy?
    There are no refunds. But you can cancel your monthly membership anytime.
