My name is Bibi Lindahl and I was born in Norway in 1966. Except for two quite interesting years in Iceland, I have lived in Norway all my life.
Alright. Let’s get the basic credentials out of the way:
I’m a published writer of numerous articles in major craft magazines in the UK and USA, two short stories (Norwegian magazines), currently working on my 3rd novel – one that I aim to get trad. published before May 2022. I’m also working on a children’s book which I plan to self-publish next summer, using my own illustrations.
I studied Nordic Languages and Literature at Høyskolen i Telemark (Telemark College, 2006).
I am a Certified NLP Master Practitioner and a
Certified Guide with the Master Key Experience.
My WIP novel is a story about my own hero’s journey (using Joseph Campbell’s formula) and how I went from feeling like a major failure to living the life of my (wildest) dreams. My novel will reveal how I healed myself, physically as well as mentally.
MY WIP children’s book, which I also illustrate myself, is showing young kids that they are unique and valuable. I use a cute baby animal as the main character.
I’ve been a crafter all my life and used to own a well known rubber stamp business. I still enjoy stamping and card making. Other interests include watercolour painting, going for walks with my dog, yoga, and meditation. I’m an avid reader of uplifting and/or spiritual literature and novels with a positive message.
I live on the island Kråkerøy (Crow Island) in the south-east of Norway. I have a charming Standard Poodle named Tomine (pronounced Toh-mee-neh). She is 12 years old and I adopted her four years ago. I grew up with dogs and this is my 4th adoptee.
My passion is the welfare of rescue animals – dogs & donkeys in particular and I am in the planning stages of starting a eco-friendly farm with room for a few donkeys, goats, cats, and dogs that deserve a new chance of a life with peace and joy, supported by unconditional love and skilled care.
I believe in the Law of Attraction. It’s no Secret that it works 😉
In January 2019 I threw away my crutches for good. Before then, I could hardly walk more than 15 or so meters on a good day. Now I can walk a whole kilometer before I need a quick stop, and it keeps getting better! In addition to that, in March I quit taking my daily 2 x dosage of painkillers (Neurontin) for the first time since 2005. And I no longer suffer from anxiety. NONE.
I credit this amazing physical and mental healing process to my positive mental attitude, using daily, repetitive affirmations and visualization of the results I wanted. “What you focus on grows” is one of the Universal Laws that has proven to be true.
If I could achieve all that in a matter of months, just imagine what I can do in the next couple of years! So stay tuned, subscribe to my blog and see where this gal is going! 😀
