In Iceland there is a spirit in everything. Our whole language is comprised of words that contain the word spirit or andi as it is called in Icelandic. The direct translation of the word andi is in fact, spirit. We have hundreds of words that contain andi in them whether they be verbs, adjectives or nouns as the ending -andi is in fact an extremely common ending to words in Icelandic.  

May you always be reminded that no matter what you are doing or who you are being you are always being in spirit


The spirit words on this poster mean the follwing;  

Lifandi = living (life spirit)

Gefandi = giving (give (ing) spirit)

Vakandi = awakened (waking spirit)

Andandi = breathing (breath / life spirit)

Elskandi = loving (love spirit)

Skapandi = creating (creative spirit)


In Iceland, we are surrounded by spirit whether we realize it or not and our language is infused with words to remind us of it. Spirit is pretty much infused and ingrained into everything around us as it is also seen in our magestic nature, as well as in our people, culture and heritage, and to top it all off, the Icelandic word for spirit is also infused in to our language. Whether you speak Icelandic or not, may these spirit (andi) words always remind you that no matter what you are doing and who you are being, you are always in spirit


At InspIra we love being in spirit and we love the word spirit. Being in spirit is something to celebrate and it is a word that is nice to be reminded of. We have this poster in various fonts and colors so you may find what speaks to you the most, and always be reminded to be in spirit :)
