Choosing – all the time

Life is one big string of choices. Every minute of every day you make choices. Big ones, small ones. Each and every one of them gives you the opportunity to show the world who you are.

For you define who you are by the choices you make. The deeds you do. The words you speak, the thoughts that you choose to stay in your conscious mind. For you cannot choose what thought pops in your mind, but you can choose which one stays there; which one keeps you occupied; which one defines what your dominant thought of the day will be.

What you speak about, think about, grows. For whatever you do, think, say, creates energy which you put into the topic you’ve chosen. Which in turn will grow.

Choose wisely. Choose for love. Love is the ONLY force capable of healing our beautiful planet, humanity, broken systems, economy, …. all of it.

YOU are responsible for what happens to humanity, for YOU can choose where you invest your beautiful human energy into.

Choose wisely.

Choose love.

Te takanawa.


Focus & Let Go

What is the world telling us now? Let’s dare to step back a bit and see without the filters of mainstream media….

The world is showing itself in the most diverse ways possible. More than ever. We now see people’s and country’s true colors. For it seems as if some of the previous predefined filters and self-censorship have evaporated.

People dare to hit the streets again. In numbers larger than what we saw in 1968. Politicians and countries dare to express and openly display their greed, sexism, racism, censorship without any respect for treaties, human rights, etc.

What does that mean? Where do we, individuals, come into this picture?

We ARE part of this picture. Everyday we make choices. Choosing for what makes us happy of for what makes us unhappy. Your choice influences all of humanity.

The choice is yours. Do you choose to be in fear? Or do you choose for love? The choice you make has its consequences far beyond yourself as an individual. This can not be underestimated.

For me, I choose to be love. I choose for the decisions that make me happy. I choose to surround me with the people that make me feel better, happy.

This choice has some important consequences. The level of awareness with which you make your choice, determines the impact it has on the rest of humanity. So, focus on awareness to make that choice and then, let go of the potential consequences of it.

Your individual choice for love impacts humanity far beyond your imagination. Leave what the world is telling you today behind you, for your individual choices are far more important.

Focus, Let Go & Enjoy Life !

Check !

A healer is not someone that you go to for healing.

A healer is someone that triggers within you, your own ability to heal your Self.


Your own beliefs about your capabilities to heal your Self determine the speed and quality of the healing process.


Life is a self fullfilling prophecy. What goes ’round comes ’round.


Enjoy Life !

Opening doors

Why is it that people tend to react from a “fear” point of view when something unexpected happens?

A door that closes creates room for many other doors that now can present themselves. An ability to see these new ones, choose the ones that you’d like to explore and define the one(s) you will pass through.

New doors don’t show themselves if other remain open. Something has to be closed, finished off and “archived” before new opportunities can present themselves. Your mind and heart will have to be open enough to be able to see and feel these “new doors”. Sticking to old energy patterns won’t get you anywhere new.

Sharing an unexpected “you’re out of a job now” experience makes most people focus on their own “fears”. Fear of shortage, fear of the unknown. And in that feedback, forgetting how many talents and capacities they have, what numerous possibilities there are.

For yes, there’s only one person at the steering wheel of your life: YOU. Blaming anyone else or pointing fingers are useless and counterproductive tactics. They make you hide from the real issue: taking your own responsibility. And saying thanks for whoever helped creating the circumstances in which these new doors could present themselves.

So, thank you! – Let’s explore these new doors that keep showing up and choose the ones closest to my passion! Let the fun begin, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet …


Great Spirit Prayer

So profoundly touching my heart ….

Grandmother Mepi

Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the winds and whose breath gives life to all in the world, hear me. I need your strength and your wisdom.

Let me walk in beauty and let my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunsets that you have created with me.

Make my hands respect the things that you have made and my ears sharp to hear your words and your voice.

Let me learn the lessons that you have hidden under every rock and leaf.

I seek strength not to be greater than my brother but to fight my greatest enemy… myself.

Make me always ready to come to you with clean hands and straight eyes, so that when my life fades as the fading sunset, my Spirit can come to you without shame.

Let’s face our egos

ego is smart. it has a zillion ways to sneak in, it has all sorts of cloaks. but it’s also keeping us alive. it keeps us alive in this three dimensional realm of the physical world. breathing, heart beats. just two of the things that we consider a “must” in this spacesuit we’re wearing.

there’s no “good” or “bad”, there’s just labels we stick on. and our egos like sticking labels. because our egos are so much interested in what some one else thinks of us, that they’ll cross our own borders and feelings to comply.

political correctness is one of those cloaked ways egos operate. let’s face it: political correctness is always an example of the use of double standards. do we really question what media and government wants us to know through so-called unbiased mainstream media? do we allow ourselves to be confronted with a potential other truth which just may blow away all what we’ve taken for granted so far?

let’s face our egos then

let’s FEEL what our hearts tell us

let’s cross check what our minds try to trick us in to

let’s see what’s the driving force behind all those so-called “we’re protecting the population” messages. find the money ….

do we dare to do that?

are we prepared to put energy in finding uncomfortable truths?

I am.

I am for I’ve found that this makes my heart sing. living in integrity and following the heart is extremely rewarding. joy in life. playing in passion. rejuvenation. ever improving health.

yes; by facing my ego, thanking it for it’s attempts to see things the left-brain way and offering the choice to feel again and choose again.  choosing for the way of the heart.

thank you, ego. thank you for helping me write this blog about you.

Media Silence on atrocities

please be warned. if you’re a huge fan of “political correctness“, this post is not for you. get out. now.

yes. although we’re bombarded with all sorts of “breaking” news, we only get to hear & see what mainstream media is allowed to broadcast and what you’re allowed to know.

this makes me truly sad. we’re in the “no more secrets” era; we’ve stepped into a new realm of energy where connections and bonds between people across colors, ethnicity, faith, heritage, nations is growing; and still it’s considered to be “unsafe” that we, the people, may know what corporate greed is doing, what governments are doing, what ingredients our food has, what by-effects medicine has and so on.

we have a voice, let it be heard; let it be heard loud and clear

so let me share with you two current events that I consider worth while sharing; events that in my opinion the world should know about.

Standing Rock: for the first time since a very long time, over 60 Native American nations speak with one voice, stand up against a potential environmental disaster which will affect the Standing Rock people, defend their rights to have permanent access to safe and clean drinking water. their protest is peaceful, but violently countered by security staff of corporations and local and state police. although a court case is underway, bulldozers paved their way through sacred burial grounds, ignoring any courts’ outcome. it is important for the world to know that the Nations start to speak with one voice. in peace. I consider this VERY good news. of course, the topic in itself is bad news. so let’s share this important news and support them protecting their water. as a reminder, this video shows what their fighting against. #NODAPL

Snipers & playing kids: kids die while playing in the street. kids are being shot by snipers. anonymously. without an apparent reason. they haven’t been caught and brought to trial as yet. “it’s a pity, we can’t find them” are the unofficial comments… no, this is not about a favella, this is not about IS. these are Palestinian kids playing in the streets, peacefully. one by one taken out by snipers. and complete media silence. not good for publicity. wrong for image building. reports on social media last just a couple of hours before disappearing in the void. I wonder how long this blog post will last.

in this case, truly globally, almost all media is applying double standards – don’t agree? I dare you to look at it. have a read of this extract from a 2013 UNICEF report:

“The ill-treatment of [Palestinian] children who come in contact with the military detention system appears to be widespread, systematic and institutionalized throughout the process, from the moment of arrest until the child’s prosecution and eventual conviction and sentencing.”

we’re talking CHILDREN here. no Israelite child EVER is in touch with military rule of law. when an armored vehicle enters your playground and you swear at it, is enough reason to be arrested, abused and pass through military rulings. to me, this sounds like one of the mechanisms of a very well thought-of long term genocide. and the world is silent. and the world looks the other way. and most of this is funded by US tax payers dollars. but of course, it is politically incorrect to say it is.

let us use the sharing powers of the internet, let us use what’s left of the uncontrolled social media (if any) to surface all atrocities, regardless where they’re committed, regardless of who by.


Choosing for Love (3)

yes. Again the same title. Because it fits what’s going on in this world.

Have you noticed? We’re presented with choices all the time. And the potential impact of those choices tends to grow. Personal relationships or geo-politics alike, we humans get to make more and more important choices.

Do we choose the path of the Old Paradigm? Do we choose for uncomfortable safety because that’s what we’ve been doing for the last dozens of years? Do we choose to be numb and stick our heads in the sand? Avoiding responsibility? Again?

The most important thing to know is that we cannot make a wrong choice. We never have. We ALWAYS choose for what we judge as “the right thing to do”. For whatever reason. And we can always choose again. Whatever “the other ones” say. Because that is none of our business. It defines who they are, not you.

YOU are defined by the choices you make. If you choose to be informed, to take conscious choices, to choose for LOVE instead of FEAR, you will experience different consequences. For ALL choices have their consequences.

Do we “follow the leaders” in their messages of fear for more terror attacks or for a Brexit or a potential clamp down on your civil rights? Or do we choose for LOVE? Do we choose to join in compassion, in love and show our world and religious leaders that hate won’t work anymore in today’s society?

The ONLY true solution to today’s issues and problems is LOVE. Choosing for LOVE sets the other person in their power. It includes firmly standing in your power as well. It includes setting borders, demanding to be treated respectfully, whomever it concerns. Relatives, co-workers, politicians, law enforcers, even your own kids, etc. For the others will only treat you with respect as far as you respect your Self.

Stand in your power, choose for Love, for it’s the only answer there is. And you are forever.


Choosing for Love (2)

Yesterday, March 22nd, Brussels. I was to pick up colleagues from the airport in the morning. I was delayed and just before leaving, the news came to me “better not go”. The next thing I knew was that I was looking at horrifying images from both attacks in Brussels. The mobile phone network was down, overloaded. The government asked our citizen to stay put, don’t go out on the streets, schools were asked to shut doors and keep the kids inside.

So what do I choose? This question sprung to mind with the answer following immediately. I choose for Love. Love and compassion. And what do I see?

Ordinary people, our citizens and many international visitors with them, start creating this Love message in public. Writing it with chalk on the pavements of squares in the heart of Brussels. And my heart sings. Humanity starts to understand.

Yes, so many victims and wounded people hurts. Yes indeed. But no, the cause is too important to give in to the fear that is radiated by our government and mainstream media. The cause is freedom. Freedom of speech, freedom of choice, freedom to love the persons we choose in the way we choose to, freedom to be the persons that we want to be, freedom to take our own decisions over our own lives, our own health.

Fear, revenge or aggression will never ever solve a problem or a crisis. Solving a “problem” requires a higher consciousness than with which the problem was created in the first place. So division, separation, walls, barbed wire, ID checkpoints, reduced food supplies, fear based management & control, waterboarding, using double standards, us-vs-them based religion will only enlarge the problem instead of solving it.

What struck me most is that you can see a clear difference in the types of messages sent out by “those in power” and “those not in power”. Have a look at it yourself, the social media are loaded with them: those in power radiate fear-based and control-based messages about what happened; those “not in power” radiate compassion, love, #iwanttohelp type messages. The local language hashtag #ikwilhelpen quickly trended on social media.


It warms my heart to learn that immediately after the event, local companies started to offer help. Hotels offered their spare rooms for free, taxi drivers offered free rides to the stranded people, families offered free b&b services.

This is in huge contrast with some of the messaging spread by governments and big ego’s in charge… and no, I refuse to share these with you here. Enough of that.

I end this blog by saying a big THANK YOU to all that offered help, all that sent love and compassion, all that shared their messages of love with the world in these challenging times. Please let’s continue doing this, it has a bigger impact than we can ever imagine.

I choose LOVE, for this is the only way forward.
