Norwegian Princess Martha Louise finds love in American shaman and spiritual guide to celebs like Gwyneth Paltrow and Nina Dobrev
Looks like a match made in heaven! Norwegian Princess Martha Louise has apparently found the love of her life in an American shaman and "spiritual guide" for celebrity stars, whose pals include popular Hollywood stars like Gwyneth Paltrow, Nina Dobrev, and Rosario Dawson.
Princess Martha, who is the eldest child of King Harald and Queen Sonja, recently revealed on Instagram that she's officially involved with the American spiritual guide, stating that she's in a committed relationship with her "twin flame" Shaman Durek Verrett.
"When you meet your twin flame, you know. I have been lucky enough to have met mine," she wrote alongside photos taken by photographer Daryl Henderson, on Sunday. "@shamandurek has changed my life, like he does with so many. He has made me realize that unconditional love actually exists here on this planet."
According to his social media pages as well as his website, Durek describes himself as a "spiritual guide and gifted healer" and "sixth generation shaman". His social media pages are literally stocked with photos of him and his celebrity pals, which include the likes of Nina Dobrev and Gwyneth Paltrow, who he has dubbed his "soul sis".
Durek, in fact, is so chummy with the 'Iron Man' actress that he's been interviewed on her lifestyle website Goop on various subjects, including one on getting rid of negative energy. Meanwhile, the 47-year-old princess, who ended a 14-year marriage with her husband Ari Behn in 2016, warned critics of her new relationship to "hold your horses".
"It is not up to you to choose for me or to judge me," she wrote on the same social media post. "I don’t choose my man to satisfy any of you or the norms or boxes you have chosen in your mind for me to be in… I choose from love. And that’s it." The mom-of-three concluded her post saying: "Shaman Durek is merely a man I love spending my time with and who fulfills me. So thank you for respecting my actions and my choice of partner. All I know at this moment is that we love each other and I am super happy."
Durek too shared the pictures on his social media with a sweet message dedicated to his royal lover. "There is a grace and beauty about life when you fall in love. Something softens in you that's unspeakable, however, felt in the very depth of your soul. Then your eyes see more clearly yourself and everyone else with the same reflection the heart feels. To be loved or not to be loved for I'd rather be loved unconditionally then not to be loved at all," he wrote.
"This is what I feel from @princessmarthalouise, pure acceptance of my multidimensional self. Not just the Shaman, however the woman in me, the strong man in me, the little boy, ET, the jaguar, the scientist and the angel and more. All loved by this Goddess, who I honor and worship. Where I can cry in her arms when I’m sad or hurt and laugh about life and its many complexities. A strong woman who lets me be me without judgment or confinement."
