Big Announcement And Changes……

Written by Ka Sundance

Hi Guys,
This is your Ka speaking and we are back here!! Check this out we are back in paradise, back in Costa Rica!!! We arrived a few days ago and actually I have a special announcement to make today in regards to my YouTube presence. We have been receiving many, many emails from people who want to know more about our life. We have an amazing life travelling the world on a constant basis and living in awesome places like this! People want to know what we eat, what we do the entire day.

As a family with an online business that reaches millions we decided to do a little experiment. I talked this through with Katie so the family is behind me. For the next month I will be doing a daily upload to basically share our life on our other channel at
www.youtube.com/user/KaSundanceAndFamily.

This will not be content where I talk as a speaker, but we will be sharing from morning till evening what we do for the entire day. This is our plan. I am reacting to requests I have gotten from you guys. But also the idea I have with this, I am driven to inspire people all around the world to live a more healthy life and a more purpose filled life. Whatever serves that purpose its welcome and this is why I am doing this

I will have to see how this works because I will have to edit every evening , if I film throughout the day I will have to edit at night and I will not have much free time. I will upload late in the night. I have a link below the video player here where this new format will happen. You will be able to see new videos every day. I still have a little delay of 10 or 12 videos on this other channel. I started this channel with my birth, when I went to school, when I met Katie and more.

I was the first kid in school with a video camera in ’92. This other channel is really a documentary of my entire life really. There are still some videos to be loaded but I am going to start today, so that each and every day there will be a video online about me and my life, about what we do the entire day- on this other channel. I would love to see subscribers and clicks – if we see a lot of interest we will continue to do it, if not it will just be a one month experiment.

Now I am interested in your comments , your ideas, how you feel about this??

Are you excited, how do you feel about this?

Please leave us a comment and also subscribe at www.youtube.com/user/KaSundanceAndFamily if you want us to do this!

It will only be in English, to all my ever growing German fan base we are going to try this in English first to see if there is even a need for this. This is going to require a lot of time every day from me – a lot actually. But it is serving a bigger purpose and I am happy to do this. I love YouTube, I have been doing this my entire life and this seems like a logical next step to try this.

Thanks so much, this your Ka – peace, love and rock and roll!!
Over and out – bye bye.

How can you find happiness?

Hi Guys,
This is your Ka speaking, I want to warmly welcome your here from the beautiful German forest in the southern part of Germany. We are here for a few more days and these are the warm, late summer days.

Today I want to talk about happiness. I want to teach you some ways to boost your happiness level in your life. Not only coming from the spiritual, hippy guru stuff but scientifically proven techniques that will enhance and boost your happiness level in your life.  I would like to come from this angle today to not turn off people that want some proven techniques that have been tested. Thank God there are people doing this so we can profit from this knowledge. I want to get started right away.

1. It is proven that people who have some kind of spiritual belief or love to participate in a religion are generally ( if they practice it) more happy than people who don’t have a religion. It is about doing the meditation, doing the yoga, doing the prayers – it doesn’t matter what but you need to practice it. What ever it is you need to practice it and you will be more happy. It is about doing it – that is the big part of it.

10547751_703447143060562_5709498677602961004_o

Turn off the world for a bit

2. People who are able to shut down their cell phone several times a day are generally speaking, more happy than people who are always are on it – you know these kind of people – you are in a conversation and they have to check messages or text. They can’t even think of turning off their cell phone – it has been tested that if you can turn it off at times during the day that you will be more happy. A little health advice at the end- at night always put it on airplane mode so you are not exposed to the cell phone waves.

3. Don’t rely on external validation. This means that people who are in touch with themselves and live a life according to their beliefs and are aligned with them are happier. They are not looking for shoulder tapping from the outer world, from parents or spouses or partners. Make yourself independent from that, it doesn’t matter , it doesn’t mean anything what people around you say. What matters is what you say and what you think about it. If something feels right, if you feel like wearing a purple hat everyday by god put it on and be proud of it. Don’t give a damn about what people feel about it!!! If it feels right to have a purple hat on -go for it. I would love to see you with a purple hat – if I see someone walking down the street today with a purple hat, I will know you have been watching my video!!

Happiness is not linked to having money

4. Happiness is not necessarily linked to money. It is not about buying a lot of things, those that can buy those things are no happier than those who cannot. It’s not about having or owning stuff, it doesn’t bring happiness. What brings happiness is if you invest your money not into things but experiences. it is a subtle difference, but important. I like it because you don’t need to be rich to get a cool experience – going for a hike through the forest, climbing a mountain or going to the beach. There are so many things you can do as an experience that you don’t need money for. That is a blessing for everybody who is not blessed with a fortune. It’s about having experiences and you can design those. You have to go out and get them or make them happen. They do not fall from the sky. It is a good thing that happiness is not related to money. I wanted to highlight this point especially because it empowers you because you  can create an experience that is exciting for you and your kids!! So go out and do it!

Healthy eating leads to happiness

5. Of course, I love this very much. It is scientifically proven that there is a connection between healthy eating and happiness. So people who eat raw, alive, vibrant foods – like fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds. And especially I want to highlight my very best of all times, the rock and roller of health foods – the green juices! If you eat healthy and drink green juices you are going to be a more happy human being. Because you are living in accordance with the needs of your body. You have been looking and dealing with emotionally eating patterns, you have discipline and are focused on eating healthy and being happy. More then someone who stuffs themselves with junk and drugs will be. So eat the healthy foods to be more happy.

Being grateful for things makes you happy

10511664_682783601793583_4594021792507473549_o

6. Gratitude. People who are grateful or find reasons to be grateful are much happier than those who don’t have this gratitude. This again guys is a decision – it is not a condition it is a decision. I have seen people in so much poverty and they were so grateful and happy as human beings. I know millionaires who are so unhappy. So please don’t link that to the money and say “oh I am so poor” – don’t victimize yourself. You have got to find it – no matter where you are or how ambitious your goals are or how badly you want to reach those goals – you have to find reasons in the here and now to be thankful for. Other then this the whole thing will collapse if you don’t find things to be thankful for. You will loop yourself in an unhappy environment - you are gonna affirm unhappiness, you are gonna affirm I still didn’t do it, I still have this body, I am still broke. That’s not how it rolls if you want to become happy you have to find the little things you are happy for , that you are grateful for – that you enjoy and are happy about. You find the fuel to reach your goals and take the necessary action steps and you just have a totally energetic frequency around you. Oh my god, that was not very scientific was it! You just will be more happy if you are grateful, there is a connection and it is scientifically proven. Again, forget the spiritual stuff!

Happiness is a decision

7. Again this is not rocket science but happiness doesn’t fall from the sky. You have to be willing to take some action, to find happiness, to create it. Happiness is a decision. People who are not very happy like to feel it is luck or fate or it is not meant for them to be happy, I have this burden and this hard life. Guys, it is not the condition but the decision. The question is not what kind of life you have but what kind of meaning do you give the experiences you do everyday. One person can give a specific thing a totally different meaning then another person. You could have the best thing happening to you but if you don’t appreciate it you will not see it. A very bad thing can happen, my friend Sam Cawthorn lost his right arm, but he is one of the most happy and most vibrant people I have met in life. Happiness is a decision , you can decide to be happy and you don’t need to wait for anything to make that decision. Get out there and get some more happiness for yourself! I think this is the most important one so I will end here.

I would love to get some comments from you. What did I miss? Did I miss some practices or scientific case studies that you know? Please post them down below, I always like to receive any comments.

Get on our SundanceFamily.com list to stay in touch. Thanks so much for watching, I will be back soon with more videos from beautiful Germany before we move on for a very long, warm and happy winter. Thanks so much, this is your Ka. Love you guys and will be back soon.

Bye bye

Reunited with my family

Hi Guys,

This is your Ka speaking and I am coming to you live from a beautiful forest in Germany.  This is one of the only things aside from family that I miss while travelling in the tropics.  We just arrived yesterday so you will have to forgive me if I look a little tired.  I am jet lagged for sure but I feel really energetic because of the diet I am on now. I am eating very little and drinking lots of juices.  I just arrived here and am really, really happy that I was able to put my arms around my family!! Especially my three little kids and Katie – all of them really!!  We are reunited and I am really happy about this!!

It’s also not as hot as it is in the tropics which is a nice change for now, at least.  I wanted to talk to you today about a misconception, a lie that has been put in our heads since childhood.  There is actually two lies:  one is that you can’t enjoy life until you are retired and in the meantime you have to work really really hard.  Those two conceptions have hindered us as a human tribe.  The amount of joy and abundance we could experience has been stunted.  I want to help you question those beliefs.

 

Don’t wait for retirement to enjoy your life

First with retirement -  I feel we have been brought up with the notion that we can only enjoy life once we retire.  Guys you have to see that the demographics are very clear.  Our society in the Western world is getting older and older.  We do not reproduce enough and this contract we  once had between the older and younger will not work for much longer.  If people tell you that your retirement fund is safe, this is a lie – this will change sooner rather then later.  If you think you can wait for your retirement pension to come and provide for you till the end of your days, you are mistaken – this is gonna change.  This is good news because it forces you to change something and take responsibility right now. To not rely on what the media is telling you.  That is the first thing.  Second you want to live your dreams, to do something that matters to you and others.  If you are 65 or 70 years ( they will increase the retirement age) you might not have any dreams anymore because you have been living against your dreams for an entire life time.  Please don’t do that !!!!!

How many retired people do you know that do exciting things and live their dreams??? There are people, I know it is possible but if you look at the percentage how many are living their dreams it is small.  Second you you might be too sick to live your dreams.  You might have to care for family members who are too sick to follow your dreams.  You cannot do the travel you have been waiting to do your entire life to do.  Now is the time.  Do not put your dreams on the back shelf and let them rot there.

 

10511657_682806208457989_8466482721044833790_o
From the bottom of my heart
From my heart I wish for you to just do it now.  What you have to do is to take on responsibility for your life.  Stop victimizing yourself, you are the creator of your life.  Stop blaming the government, your parents, your job, or your inability for your situation.  It’s not fair.  You have been putting yourself in this situation.  You are exactly where you are in order to take the next step.  It’s good to know this and own this place where you are right now.  As hard as this might seem, this is the first step to true change.  You have to admit honestly where you are right now and take responsibility for it.  That is the first step.

 

It’s a misconception that you have to work really hard 
The second misconception is that you have to work hard your whole life.  I feel that the more fun I have while working – I am working right now- the more time I use for playing and fun and wellness and doing stuff I really enjoy the more impact I have.  It allows me to reach more people and make more money and feel more happiness and have more free time. This connection between working time and getting paid is a conception that can be cracked apart.  You don’t have to get paid by the hour.  You have to take responsibility for that – as long as you are happy with that – keep doing it.  But if you do not feel like you are reaching your full potential and you are not as happy as you could be – question that and take responsibility.  From my own life and experience I would like to advice you to take three steps.

 

Steps to change your life

10513265_682783451793598_867749661595190809_nThe first step is to change your situation – you have to know exactly where you are – be honest and own it.  Second is you have to create a compelling vision.  You need to be specific and know exactly what is is you want to create.  It needs to make you excited and you can’t sleep if you think about it!!!   Three is to take action and move forward.  You don’t need to know the entire plan, just take this one little action step that you know you have to take.

I have been doing this through an online business helping and serving millions of people out there.  It gives me maximum freedom, it gives me significance, it gives me meaning and so much joy!!  It gives me financial freedom.  This is an option, I don’t know if it is the right one for you but I am sharing what worked for me guys.  These three steps work for anything.  I would love to see you implement them to be more abundant and happy in your life and to give back, to share and contribute in a bigger way.

 

This is my video.  I hope I have inspired you even though I am jet lagged.  Thanks so much for watching and I will be back from beautiful Germany.
I want to say thank you guys and see you soon, this was your Ka
Bye bye

From Denmark to Thailand

Written by Ka Sundance

DSC_0113-003(1)

 

Who are you and where do you come from?

We are Tina 33, Victor 10, Emil 8, Anton 6, Rumle 3 and Mikkel 43.
We are a family from Denmark. In Denmark we had a wonderfull three storyhouse. Tina was in sales and Mikkel was fundraising for children with cancer. Our children were in school and kindergarden. Every year we would travel by car to Italy and Croatia. We were the typical set family.

How did you get the idea to travel with your four kids and why?

We have allways seeked new experiences, allways been very spontanious, even with 4 children. Getting up at six, sending our kids off to school and kindergarden, going to work. Coming home late, picking up the kids late, shopping food, making dinner, doing homework, reading bedtime stories and then going to bed. And then doing the same thing all over again the next day and the day after that. It became too trivial. Too boring. So one day in december 2013, Tina and I looked at each other and decided pack the house quit our jobs and go travelling. What the hell, we can allways come back home if things dont work out. So two months and ten days later we were on the plane heading to Bangkok. Apart from the first week in Phuket we did not have any destinations planned. We played it by ear.

How did you get started and made it happen?

We just did it.
We did not plan anything from home, ofcourse we had thoughts of where we would like to go, and what we would like to see. We dont realy like plan, because then the freedom disapears.
What is with your home? Do you still have a house or stuff back in Denmark?
We have nothing apart from some stuff stored in Denmark. We are Danish citizens but have no rights. Which is fine, because we are not in Denmark. As said before, if for some reason things go wrong on the trip, we can allways return to Denmark.

Do you plan to go back? What will you do then?

Difficult question. The answer is yes, we have family there, but the real question is probably – how long we will stay in Denmark- ? We dont know, because we are sort of semi planning a road trip in north and central America. Doing Alaska down to Florida. So this trip has so far, made us want to see more of the world.

Do you miss family and friends, how do you stay in touch with them?

We miss family and friends, we have just had a wonderfull visit from Denmark. Tinas sister came out here with a friend and it was a wonderfull two weeks, and the kids loved their aunt being here. At christmas time we will be acompanied by Tinas family and we cant wait. Other than that we skype, and write a lot of emails.

What is about the education of your kids?

Mikkel has done a lot of work teaching in Denmark, so it is not that difficult for us to teach the kids. We sit down every day and do school work. But nothing can compare to learning about everyday life in the countries that we visit. This is where the gold is, and this trip will prepare them to meet hundreds of different cultures and realy get an insight of what the world is about, and that is priceless.

Do you have a health insurance?

We did have a health insurance through a Danish company. This was however very expensive. So we did some surfing on the web and found worldnomads which is excellent. Good coverage and good prices.

Where can people learn more about you and follow your adventures?

We have two blogs, one in Danish and one in English. In time we hope we can translate the blogs into 10-15 different languages, so we can skip the google translate.
www.verdensomlegeplads.dk
www.worldasourplayground.com
We would love to inspire people to do what we do. And believe it or not, it is quite simpel.
We also do coaching for people who want to let go of the fear they have. We want people to follow their dream, because one day its going to be too late. And if you ask your self – why did I not do that-or -why did I not go there- then you have not got the most out of life.

Life is a gift, and it has to be lived.

Tina and Mikkel
Victor, Emil, Anton and Rumle.

Literally and more…
Hi Guys,
This is your Ka speaking.  I want to warmly welcome you from beautiful Thailand.  Once again I want to answer a question today that we have been asked lately.  It is in regards to us being a world traveling family.  People are wondering what we do with our stuff in Costa Rica.  Generally the stuff that comes to us over the years – What do we do with all of it?
I want to answer this in two ways.  One is literally – what we actually do with the physical things we have.   And two,  that it is just a representation about what is going on within yourself – emotionally and spiritually.

 

Just a few boxes
First off, we have a base in Costa Rica and we have some boxes there – most of it is toys for the kids, a desk top computer and some more clothes.  It is a small garage with 5 or 6 boxes.  This is literally all the stuff we possess and own.  With everything else we just travel around with 4 or 5 suitcases even though there are 7 of us!! We have very little physical stuff to carry around with us. We don’t have anything in Germany, just the few boxes in Costa Rica.  We designed this by choice guys.   I feel all the successful people or world travelers who do this long term are really good at letting go.  Both physically and spiritually.

 

10496949_682988228439787_7510581499213398155_o
You have to be able to let go of stuff
 You have to be able to let go of your stuff.
 It also has to do with faith, fear and trust.  Letting go of this fear means you just trust and know that whenever you need something that it will be provided for you by the Universe.  You will buy it or find it or it will come to you.  These two things go hand in hand.  If you take on this belief that if you need something new it will be there, you won’t have to hang onto all those things that may be handy someday but are of no use to you right now.
This is how you get rid of all the stuff that is cluttering up your life emotionally, spiritually and physically.  I think it’s a lesson inside I have gained from life.  You have to be willing to let go and embrace the new and to see what new beautiful things you will get in the future.  Rather then hanging on to old stuff that might have been great in the past but no longer serves you in any way right now.

 

It really is a mind set
This constant letting go is a very good practice that you take on as a world traveler.  We change continents every few months.  It is a mind set thing as well.  I don’t think about the loss of leaving Thailand, I think about all the castles we will see in Germany and how awesome it will be to be back in Costa Rica when we go there.
It’s just a focus.  You can focus on what you have to let go of or you embrace the new and  look forward to the new.   This is how we can consciously use travelling to let go.  To let go and especially to let go of old habits, structures, emotional patterns and thought patterns that are no longer serving you.  You just try to implement something new as you go to a new continent.

1529858_681138851958058_5615682423889172541_o

 

Kids are good at this
We do this several times a year and I think it is a very refreshing life process.   This is linked to our kids.  Kids are so good at this.  They are living and breathing this life style.  As we get older it is easy to fall asleep and get stuck somewhere. Kids love to move and to travel, at least ours do!!  This is how we deal with physical stuff – we just let go and we make lots of gifts to others.  We try to enter a new continent very lightly.  You take on new stuff, it just happens, it’s normal. Letting go is not a process that is only done once and is completed.  It is a constant way of being – we need to practice through out our life time to succeed at it.  This is my answer in regards to our physical stuff and also spiritual and emotional baggage.

 

Guys I want to thank you so much for watching.  If you liked this one, please leave a comment and give us a like.  I will be making more videos from beautiful Thailand and soon from Germany and Costa Rica after that…….then the rest of the world!!!!!
Thank you so much.  This is your Ka.  Love you guys.  Bye Bye.
