Diary of a Swedish Yogini ~ by Evelina Wahlqvist

Real, yet Unseen


I am the light in your sky.

I am the cause of your smile.

I am the ocean you swim.

I am the bridges you pass.

I am the breeze through your hair.

I am the touch on your cheek.

I am the kiss on your lips.

I am the warmth in your heart.

I am the love that you feel.

Yet, I’m unseen.




Why don’t we just choose to live in harmony with each other? We have nothing to loose. Living in harmony with others doesn’t imply loosing yourself. It simply means singing togehter. In different voices, with different tunes. Together creating a beautiful whole. Uniting differences. Bringing pieces to peace.

Create the harmony you wish to see in the world.

Your Treasure to Discover


Evelina Wahlqvist captured by photographer Emelie Harming


Listen through your hands.

See with your ears.

Touch with your eyes.

Talk through your smile.

Feel through your being.

Dance in your heart.

Taste life through your breath.

Make music with the wind.

Light fire in the rain.


~ You are your own treasure to discover. ~

Love is a Choice


Love is a choice.

It’s a choice of who you are, what you do and how you give. It’s also the choice of what you see in others. Love is continuously a choice.

Your choice.


See Beyond

To be courageous is to see beyond.

Walking on Water

I love this beautiful short story. It’s found within the genre of Buddhist humor. Yet, I think it has a serious and truly important message: Simplicity is genius. Find your stepping stones. See that which is given to you. ~ Enjoy! ♥ Evelina


“Three monks decided to practice meditation together. They sat by the side of a lake and closed their eyes in concentration. Then suddenly, the first one stood up and said, “I forgot my mat.” He stepped miraculously onto the water in front of him and walked across the lake to their hut on the other side.

When he returned, the second monk stood up and said, “I forgot to put my other underwear to dry.” He too walked calmly across the water and returned the same way.

The third monk watched the first two carefully in what he decided must be the test of his own abilities. “Is your learning so superior to mine? I too can match any feat you two can perform,” he declared loudly and rushed to the water’s edge to walk across it. He promptly fell into the deep water.

Undeterred, the yogi climbed out of the water and tried again, only to sink into the water. Yet again he climbed out and yet again he tried, each time sinking into the water. This went on for some time as the other two monks watched.”

After a while, the second monk turned to the first and said, “Do you think we should tell him where the stones are?””

Health is Wealth


“It is health that is real wealth, not pieces of silver and gold.”, Mahatma Gandhi said. What are you doing for your health today?

I’m drinking coconut water, excercising Yin Yoga, listening to beautiful music… and baking banana cake. I’m not sure if the last one counts, but I think so…

Enjoy the weekend and nurture yourself!

Believe it


Some say ‘Fake it until you make it’.

I say: Believe it until you become it.
