More Moss to the People

Åsa Nilsson

I am intentionally *working* on slowing down the pace of my life so that I can be present for the life I am actually living. NOW. Today. Not one day or another day but To-Day.


The day's are going to pass at lighting speed regardless. So why not sit in the moment and enjoy the meal in front of me? Drive my car in the slow lane. Walk for the enjoyment of hearing my feet sink into the moss underneath my feet in the forest that I am walking through? Be in the conversation I am having versus thinking about where I have to go next.


Connecting through being present in my own life. That's where this conversation is going and I'm ready for some more of this!


Come, share your story with me ... let's help one another to see there's more than one way of doing this thing called 'life'.

Staying in a beginners mind with Swedish Death Cleaning

Staying in a beginners mind with Swedish Death Cleaning
HOST: Åsa NilssonTITLE OF EPISODE:  Staying in a beginners mind with my Swedish Death Cleaning SUMMARY OF EPISODE:Tell me who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you are. At the end of our days, what do you think will matter the most? The stuff we chose to hold on to for dear life because it made us feel good to look at and remember the moments that we have created with them OR will we remember the family and friends (sometimes one and the same) that we love the most and who have continually shown up for us during the most difficult times in our lives? Even when the shit hit the fan. Especially when the shit hit the fan.This episode is a practical summary of what I found when I got to Houston to ‘do the work’ with my beloved eldest sister who had hired me to come in from Sweden to do Swedish Death Cleaning and decluttering in her home after her beloved husband Jay passed away on Christmas Eve.The best laid plans, my friend. I am learning that I need to remain flexible, open, empathetic to all sorts of emotions. I can have an itinerary or game plan that is written in pencil, let’s put it that way. Ahh, learning more and more every time. Pay attention, Åsa. Stay fresh in Spirit and open minded and hearted in order to learn new ways of doing old things. Hope you can learn something too.IN THIS EPISODE I DISCUSS:I can not stand to be rushed.Relax into it, don't stress into it.April is the month of Aries, time to clean it up. The “Self”, After a major life change, don’t make any huge decisions for one year. I discovered more clearly how I prefer to work with death cleaning. I am perfectly fine with a set schedule.Started with administrative work: changing names as primary account holders, what accounts need to be cancelled, memberships cancelled. Auditing all your bills and bank statements every month.Add names on accounts today where possible.Making a priority list of where to start, what rooms need the most attention. I have no agenda on what rooms get completed first. In the end they will ALL make a difference (when selling a home). How do I tackle a large closet? I go through this process. Office re-organization for my sisters needs now. New chair. Getting rid of extra screens, etc. making it HER space. Working to ‘adult’ children's rooms.Guest room is now hotelled, new bedding, neutral, cozy. Character is always revealed. Who comes to your side when you're at your lowest? You will be surprised. Hold on tight to them. Decluttering ‘friends’ and ‘family’ is ALSO a part of death cleaning.I give some tips on how to help someone who has just experienced death. Don’t ASK them what you can do, just DO something. Talking with others. The process of discussing what we want and need moving forward.The client determines the pace and timing in their home. Surrendering to the stuff. Does it bring you peace or weigh you down? HOST CONTACT INFORMATION: www.moremosstothepeople,comIG: @AsanilssonswedenFB @asajnilssonYT @asanilssonMENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:Margareta Magnusson, The Gentle Art of Death Cleaning, the book. CONTACT INFORMATION for KOMEIL ASLI, my Podcast Production Manager: Komeil Asli Freelance UI/UX Designer & Front-End Developer. komeil.asli@gmail.com Like and Follow us on Instagram, @AsaNilssonSweden and YouTube @AsaNilsson.

Reckless or Bold? REVELATIONS from CHANIA, GREECE

Reckless or Bold? REVELATIONS from CHANIA, GREECE
HOST: Åsa NilssonTITLE OF EPISODE: Reckless or Bold? REVELATIONS from CHANIA, GREECE SUMMARY OF EPISODE:After traveling to paradise (Chania, Greece) last week with my two girlfriends, I discovered something that has been elusive in my life as of late. Laughter. I mean, deep, soulful, tearful laughter. The kind that bubbles up so easily when you are with people you love and whose company you really enjoy. Experiencing such simple beauty in the local people, the delicious food, the time spent having deep and long conversations about important topics like dreams, life, hopes, love and family. What’s the most important thing in my life? My husband and our relationship. Spending time together choosing our happiness first. Choosing to live life now. Not one day. Not allowing others to determine our lives FOR us. No. Life is now. Swim in the sea. Eat the food. Open your eyes and your heart. Trust that everything will be revealed in its due course. It always has. And it always will.It’s my job to have the vision and to be clear, not vague or unconscious.I am now North Star clear. Are you? IN THIS EPISODE I DISCUSS:Traveling to Chania, Greece with 2 friends, what was that like?When asked to go, what was my initial reaction? Patterns.  When the decision was made to go, all of the sudden everything became easy.Am I getting too stuck in my habitual responses? My husband is leaving his work in June. Is it reckless? “Well, I have a job and I really like my coworkers’. Is that enough?I have a Masters in Observation. Thomas is who I want to spend my time and life with, working together with Swedish Death Cleaning! Why not?!He’s my 2 meter tall man, my viking, he can move mountains. Becoming 100% North Star clear. Is everyone else deciding our lives for us?!Chania, the builder, the materials, pride of country, eat the food, swim in the Mediterranean. What else am I not doing, not exploring, not seeing?We perceive we are in a cage yet the door is not even locked. Feeling outside? Don’t belong, don’t matter? Not rich enough?Abundance is a frame of mind, not an amount of money in your pocket.Don’t judge a book by its cover.We must lead to show others that it’s OK to choose yourself.

WHAT'S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT?
HOST: Åsa NilssonTITLE OF EPISODE: WHAT’S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT? SUMMARY OF EPISODE:There is something happening inside of me and I am not sure what it is but it feels like freedom is knocking. A coldness is dissipating into a warmness. A shell is cracking open and a flicker of light is shining in and it feels good. It feels like love.What would love do? Does this look like love to me? Does this feel like love to me? If I truly want to share my love and heart with the world, then I can’t compartmentalise it any more. Old patterns that are meant to be broken. By me and only me. Taking accountability for myself and my actions and my stories. Otherwise they’ll be back yet again (and again).What would love want to tell YOU today? IN THIS EPISODE I DISCUSS:- Good to be back in Sweden. Will I ever move back to the US?- What is love? - Looking for the exit door.- Disconnected from myself. Choosing to stay safe.- I’ve been the difficult one. - Choose to show up with my heart wide open now. - Love, what do you want me to know today? - Responsibility to know everything. Have all the answers. Patterns.- I am not enough, a recurring theme. Overcompensating.- Helping people for free, that’s a self worth problem.- How about embracing a beginners mindset instead, release the pressure valve.- Stay curious. Ask questions.CEO actions.- Trust that everything I need will be shown to me. It always has.

From modeling in LA to waitressing in NYC, what can a 21 year old possibly teach us old folks? HA! Just you wait.
GUEST: Lilly StatzerTITLE OF EPISODE:  From modeling in LA to waitressing in NYC, what can a 21 year old possibly teach us old folks? HA! Just you wait. SUMMARY OF EPISODE: I’ve known Lilly since she was a wee lass.  I haven’t seen her in over 12 years and WOW is she is making her mark in this world. How can a 21 year old be so wise?!Her wisdom makes her a perfect guest for ‘More Moss’ as she shares easily how she chooses to navigate a life through true authenticity and accountability.After leaving North Carolina at 19 to move to LA to model she quickly found herself in a dark place. She chose to come back home to North Carolina, ground herself, get her head back on straight and start working towards her goal of moving to New York City. So Lilly relocated to NYC then in July her life fell apart when her dear friend Aidan died. What came next? Seven7Fifteen15Enjoy this radiant soul. IN THIS EPISODE WE DISCUSS:Lilly’s mom Angela Statzer is the co-founder of the More Moss to the People movement! Lilly is now 21 years old, living in Brooklyn, NY.Lilly chose a different path than her friends, not the “normal” path of a 4 year college. Started from scratch, knew no one, started going out to meet people.“You can get in a deep dark hole there and I did.” “It was completely my fault I had that experience”.What Lilly feels her parents had given her as a foundation.“I can’t live like this. I was worried about the wrong things.”Moved home to NC, to ground herself, worked hard so she could move to NYC. “If you want to do something, do it! You can find happiness anywhere. Don’t give up. ”Life defining moment: in July 2023 Lilly lost a dear friend of hers Aidan Murphy in a car crash. While working through her grief, Lilly decided to finally start her dream of creating her own jewelry line. She would call it seven7fifteen15 in honour of Aidan’s death date.No more excuses. “You don’t know when your time is. Life is so short, it can be taken away from you in a second.” “I see him all the time.” Butterfly story. A portion of the proceeds from her jewelry sales go to Ukraine.Parents and legacy. “Encourage people to do what they want and happiness is the goal”. GUEST CONTACT INFORMATION: IG personal @lillywestonnIG 7/15 @seven7fifteen15Website https://seven7fifteen15.com MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: -Angela Statzer, https://www.instagram.com/angelastatzerdesigns/-Aidan Murphy Hosted on Acast.

A Death Doula, DeClutter Guide and a Swedish Death Cleaner sit down to talk about planning for death and dying.
Dec 15 2023
A Death Doula, DeClutter Guide and a Swedish Death Cleaner sit down to talk about planning for death and dying.
Guests: Tammy Faulds and Jeff OrrTITLE OF EPISODE: A Death Doula, DeClutter Guide and a Swedish Death Cleaner sit down to talk about planning for death and dying. What can YOU possibly get out of this conversation?! 🙂SUMMARY OF EPISODE:Tammy, Jeff and I are all believers in speaking about the taboo topic of death because we have witnessed what happens when ‘we’ do not.Opting in to look at our one beautiful life RIGHT NOW and determining for ourselves and preparing for what it is YOU would like the end of your life to look like, how can it be wrong, sinister or voodoo?  We are opening up the discussion to show that it is simply ‘yet another discussion’ albeit possibly the most important one you can ever start. IN THIS EPISODE WE DISCUSS:End of life planning versus celebrations of life planning. Creating a Playlist for your own epic end of life party. Wholistic approach to the planning for an end of life celebration.Bringing a unique lens to the celebration. It’s yours.Is it appropriate to curse at a funeral? HELL YES, if it fits the bill then we all say YES. Creating an end of life celebration.The time is now.Stay curious. Remember your values. Embodiment.“Death, It’s not a vampire, it won’t kill you. Invite it in.” No judgement. It’s a process. Having it feel safe.Fears. What happens when we don’t plan or write down our wishes. Screwing it up. Disappointments. Permission to choose yourself, now. Can we be the chain breakers? Takes courage.Belongings. Be-Longing. “In the end it’s all just stuff.”There’a a big fear around being forgotten. Choosing what to keep and what to dispose of.Sentimentality. Be open to reframing and thinking differently to honour the fears. Suffering comes from the unknown.Shine a light on it.“Live a life you’ll be proud to leave"I can exhale. Do this with your eyes wide open, not with your head in the sand.GUEST CONTACT INFORMATION: -Tammy Faulds, Inner Travel Grief Coaching™https://innertravelcoaching.comFollow her online on Instagram or Facebook-Jeff Orr, https://www.jefforrknows.com/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jefforrknows/YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/@jefforrknowsMENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Link to Tammy's guidebook that’s a great first step for anyone looking to get curious about death. https://members.innertravelcoaching.com/page/live-a-life-you-ll-be-proud-to-leave Hosted on Acast.

There's never been a better time to be in the now than now.

There's never been a better time to be in the now than now.
HOST: Åsa NilssonTITLE OF EPISODE: There's never been a better time to be in the now than now.SUMMARY OF EPISODE:Finding myself in a place of understanding the truth and importance of Swedish death cleaning for my own life and seeing my own story and my own family from a new perspective, I see that the actual ACT of cleaning the home isn’t the ‘work’. The true work is the conversations that come OUT of the decluttering and touching everything we have held on so tightly to.Yes, they are my belongings, but WHAT are they to me? ‘Be’ ‘longing’ … what am I ‘longing’ for? What’s the purpose and function of the thing that I MUST keep? Why does it mean so much? Who told me it meant so much?Maybe they are simply THINGS that signify a memory that means something. Perhaps it is the reason WHY these things have even found their way into my home to begin with?Our lineage. Our family ancestry. The importance of belongings and showing of wealth depending on how MUCH you had and what is actually yours and not yours. Old stories. Carried intentionally and unintentionally through the ages.I am a chain breaker. I don’t want to ‘have’ belongings to be-long. No and I don’t need to. Neither do you. Have the conversations. Now.

“The Point of Power is Always in the Present Moment”
Nov 30 2023
“The Point of Power is Always in the Present Moment”
HOST: Åsa NilssonTITLE OF EPISODE: “The Point of Power is Always in the Present Moment” - Louise HaySUMMARY OF EPISODE: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.. not necessarily my own family of origin. 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. IN THIS EPISODE I DISCUSS:-7,5 weeks here in the US, what have I learned?- “Inte skall väl jag” - Swedish saying. What does it mean?- Swedish death cleaning, travel to help my own ageing mother. - Sit down with an estate attorney. Fix paperwork, talk through everything.- Something done is better than nothing done. - “You can fight over it when I’m dead.”. No, that IS not going to happen. - Talking over memories and seeing how not one of us remember the same thing. Perspectives. -Creating something new in my life NOW, in real time, by having hard conversations NOW. Work through the discomfort. - Through getting out of my everyday routine, I experienced something beautiful and new.- I thought I came to help my mother. It ended up that I also came to heal myself. - Do I feel 100% in all areas of my life? Hell no! - Fight, flight, freeze and fawn (Mark Groves), I have fled and fawned when feeling pushed. - I believe we are here to work through what we keep pushing off. -If I make myself invisible through self abandonment then who am I in the world? - It’s a new day. Mindfulness practice. What can that look like?- I want to look for myself as a part of something, not separate from everything. HOST CONTACT INFORMATION: www.moremosstothepeople.comIG: AsaNilssonSwedenFB: Asa J NilssonYT: @AsaNilssonMENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Brendon King - Estate Attorney in Columbus, Ohio Louise L.

"Uncovering Maslow's Pyramid and seeing what basic needs of mine are still not filled."
HOST: Åsa NilssonTITLE OF EPISODE: "Uncovering Maslow's Pyramid and seeing what basic needs of mine are still not filled."SUMMARY OF EPISODE:Ahhh, family time! Thanksgiving week in the USA! This week I am looking in the proverbial mirror (yet again) to see what it is that is “triggering” me into childhood responses. When put to the “test”, will I DO better? After my sister introduced me to Abraham Maslow’s Pyramid of the 5 Core Needs which form the basis for human behavioural motivation, I see I am missing a few of the ‘core’ pieces. Not for nothing, right? This is divine timing to be presented with Maslow, especially when I am witnessing the recurrence of mistrust and not feeling safe. How can I see myself with an honest and gentle eye AND be thankful for everything I have that fills me? What we look for we find. I want to continue uncovering my old patterning so I can remember what is mine to work on and what is to be left behind. For good. IN THIS EPISODE I DISCUSS:-Thomas is here for the next two weeks. Family coming in. Thanksgiving celebrations.-Dynamics, triggers. Acting out sideways. Reverting back to old actions and reactions? Something in each one of them. -Safety and Security… trust is a big issue for me.-“Looking for the good in others then I remember the good in myself. -What am I willing to do about the missing pieces in my foundation? What is mine to do?-Recognizing more quickly the ‘Old Åsa’ the ‘Ugly Åsa’. What’s the mirror? What do I need to see?-“I am a work in progress and this is the journey of my life.”s.-Am I doing the best I can? Probably not. -Abraham Maslow, Hierarchy of Needs.-The 5 core needs: Physiological, Safety, Belonging, Esteem, Self Actualization.-Anything missing in mine to fix.HOST CONTACT INFORMATION: www.moremosstothepeople.comIG: AsaNilssonSwedenFB: Asa J NilssonYT: @AsaNilssonMENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Abraham Maslow https://positivepsychology.com/abraham-maslow/Mark Groves, https://createthelove.com/CONTACT INFORMATION for KOMEIL ASLI, my Podcast Production Manager: Komeil Asli Freelance UI/UX Designer & Front-End Developer. komeil.asli@gmail.com Like and Follow us on Instagram, @AsaNilssonSweden If you have any general questions or comments for the show, or you’d like to advertise with us, email: moremosstothepeople@gmail.com Thank you so much for listening!

GUEST: JoAnn HigaTITLE OF EPISODE: Can GENERATIONAL HEALING begin with us accepting and facing our own resistance? SUMMARY OF EPISODE:Meet my beautiful friend, JoAnn Higa. Possibly one of the deepest and introspective individuals I have had the pleasure of meeting in a long while. This gem is going through a catharsis of sorts, through discovering on a recent family voyage to the families “land” of Okinawa, Japan that a truth that she has felt in her body her whole life was in fact, true. Can there be GENERATIONAL HEALING even after hard truths are revealed?

Mine is 87 JoAnn’s is 86. Honouring our mothers.-JoAnn’s most recent trip to Okinawa with her mother and what she discovered about herself, especially when she returned. -The importance of witnessing and being a part of a family gathering.-Old memories, old traumas for her mother and herself.-Something about the tie to the “land”, the war, traumatic for the people. -Feeling the resistance, but why? What was it?. “I wasn’t the joy parents hoped for”. -“Regret, helplessness, vulnerability. I can feel it now. I view this as the beginning of healing.”-Her mothers whole story, the explanation. The picture is getting clearer. Trusting myself.-“I am integrating right at this moment. Generational healing starts with me.”-Not going to ignore feelings. Resistance. Tend to that ‘little one’.-Okinawa Watsu Center, a water modality that mimics the sensation in the womb. -Sacred Custodial Care, what does that mean for JoAnn?GUEST CONTACT INFORMATION: https://www.instagram.com/jhigacoaching/MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Marcie Hirschie https://www.instagram.com/marciepartie/Sheri Salata, https://sherisalata.com/Okinawa: Watsu (a water modality that mimics the sensation in the womb).

Try to love one another right now, especially in these precarious times.

Try to love one another right now, especially in these precarious times.
HOST: Åsa NilssonTITLE OF EPISODE: Try to love one another right now, especially in these precarious times.SUMMARY OF EPISODE:These times are troubling, for sure. What with all the horrendousness that is happening in Israel and all over the world. It is enough to make this empathic gal nearly shut down. Yet, I must not. This isn’t the time for shutting down. It is the time for rising UP. To help HOWEVER I am able. Can I change the fighting in Israel or in the Ukraine? NO, it isn’t my fight and I am not truly able to understand what is really happening there as I am dependent on the “NEWS” for that information. These are old fights that literally have nothing to do with me YET… can I do something? Anything? Yes. I can look at my own home, my own ‘village’, so to speak. Where can I reach out a hand to someone I know is alone, or lonely, or needs a shoulder or SPACE to speak? I can lend a helping hand to my ageing mother who needs help organizing and decluttering her home, and most of all, she needs company. “Come on, people now. Smile on your brother. Everybody get together. Try to love one another right now. “ (Get Together, song by Chester Powers).Am I insane to think that brothers (and sisters) can ‘get together’. Maybe. Is it impossible? No.Peace and love,ÅsaIN THIS EPISODE I DISCUSS: -Apple Podcast Review Shout Out by Sug Ciani. Thank you!-Here with my 87 year old as she spends too much time alone.-Why is More Moss a movement I wanted to create? To slow MYSELF down.–What matters most to me? Community, family, relationships.-Feel so powerless, disconnected over what is happening in Israel. -How can I best utilize the skills I have? -5 of Pentacles.  Tarot card and how fitting it is for these times.-Doing Swedish Death Cleaning in my moms house, she is Swedish after all. It’s only fitting.-Recycling old drugs, found a place here in central Ohio that took them! YEY!-Doing something is better than nothing. What can I do? I can do better.-It is harder to do nothing.-Separateness is the biggest lie of our times.-Look to help your elders or anyone that needs an ear, time, space, a hug, a phone call. -if you feel alone, reach out to help others. -We were never meant to do this alone.HOST CONTACT INFORMATION:Website: www.moremosstothepeople.comIG: AsaNilssonSwedenYouTube: @AsaNilssonFB: Asa J NilssonLI: https://www.linkedin.com/in/asajnilsson/MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:Tarot Deck used by Åsa: Radiant Rider-Waite Tarot DeckContact Information for Komeil Asli, Podcast Production Manager:Komeil Asli Freelance UI/UX Designer & Front-End Developer. komeil.asli@gmail.com Hosted on Acast.
