Hi i'm Tia and I live in Kristinehamn, Sweden.

I have travelled extensively, having visited 31 different countries. I now feel it is time to set down my roots and having always had a love of Scandinavia, Sweden seems the perfect location.


I'm a bit of a polymath as I have become conversant in many different fields. I don't tend to commit myself to one field personally, but when someone asks these days I tend to say I am an Author, having recently published my third non-fiction book. My books are based on esoteric subjects, anthropology and psychology, although I am thinking about dipping my toes into the fiction field too.

I am also a professional photographer/video maker, graphic/web designer, psychologist, perfumer, philosopher and Gnostic Bishop. The occult and esoteric are my main subjects of interest as well as psychology, anthropology and etymology.

I enjoy ceremony and other spiritual pursuits that involve connecting to our beautiful Mother Earth, the Universe and genetic memories. I also enjoy crafts such as drawing, knitting, incense making, jewellery making and all kinds of other crafty things. I enjoy meeting new people and gaining new skills and experiences.

I love being surrounded by nature and wild life, swimming or just being in water in general. Books make me happy and learning, knowledge is a drug to me. I enjoy conversing with people who can teach me things. I like seeing new places and doing things that challenge me. I have tried flying helicopters and gliders, been in a hot air balloon and all kinds. Love computers and robots. Sci-fi films are good too.

I am an Analytical Thinker, I am a reserved, quiet person. I like to get to the bottom of things - curiosity is one of my strongest motives. I want to know what holds the world together deep down inside. I do not really need much more to be happy because I am a modest person.

I loathe contradictions and illogicalness; with my sharp intellect, I quickly and comprehensively grasp patterns, principles and structures. I'm particularly interested in the fundamental nature of things and theoretical findings; for me, it is not necessarily a question of translating these into practical acts or in sharing my considerations with others. I like to work alone; my ability to concentrate is more marked than that of others. I'm open for and interested in new information.

I have little interest in everyday concerns - I'm compared to an “absent-minded professor” whose home and workplace are chaotic and I only concerns myself with banalities of life when it becomes absolutely unavoidable. The acknowledgement of my work by others does not play a great role for me; in general, I'm quite independent of social relationships and very self-reliant. I therefore often give others the impression that I'm arrogant or snobby - especially because I do not hesitate to speak my mind with my often harsh (even if justified) criticism and my imperturbable self-confidence. Incompetent contemporaries do not have it easy with me. But whoever succeeds in winning my respect and interest has a witty and very intelligent person to talk to. A person who amazes one with her excellent powers of observation and her very dry humour.

It takes some time before I make friends, but then they are mostly friends for life. I only need very few people around me. Their most important ability is to be a match for me and thus give me inspiration. Constant social obligations quickly get on my nerves; I need a lot of time alone and often withdraw from others. My friends must respect this and understand that this is not due to the lack of affection. Once I have decided in favour of a person, I'm a loyal and reliable friend. However, one cannot expect effusive expressions of feelings from me and I will definitely forget your birthday. But I am always up to a night spent with stimulating discussions and a nice drop of whisky!

I created this blog to share my thoughts, knowledge and interesting things with the world. I mainly focus on esoteric subjects and psychology, as these are my main areas of interest.

I hope you enjoy your visit here and if you want to contact to me please email me: tia at purplemist dot com
