“The Point of Power is Always in the Present Moment” – Louise Hay

By Åsa Nilsson | Dec 01, 2023

After nearly 8 weeks in the US to be with my beautiful mother to “help” her, I discover (yet again) that the healing that comes from leading with love will always be a full circle accomplishment.  

My mom couldn’t care less if her garage was straight. Or if her basement was tidy. She doesn’t get pressed by such unimportant things. 

What she DOES care about is having her family close to her.

I see now that a part of my life’s path was leading me to this very moment in time. That I was meant to come here to discover that  my love of organizing and Swedish Death Cleaning is simply a piece of a much deeper meaning of my existence. 

I KNOW I am good at those things but what I am ALSO good at is having tough conversations … with others … however, not necessarily my own family of origin. 

But through COMING OUT on the podcast last week and sharing with YOU how I feel, it was the impetus I needed to start having those harder conversations that lie so close to the heart. The conversations with family, the place where it all started. 

My healing is up to me and I am so thankful for finding my book in the basement, “You Can Heal Your Life” (Louise Hay) and being re-minded that my healing is MY responsibility.

I never would have discovered this had I not left my home to come here to “help” my mom. 

Ha, she did it again, that little minx. Full circle moment. I just love those, don’t you?
