Vlog#54 Slow Down and Listen to your inner voice

I have been working hard to come at the point where I am Today. I am proud of all the things that I have created and for what I have done for other people so far. Writing my book, giving seminars, Retreats, Ayahuasca Ceremonies, my Ayahuasca Medicine, my YouTube videos and more.

How to create your dreams?

I created a freedom for myself that did not show up out of the blue. I have been through the ups and downs and I gave my very best at all times. I’ve never had a long term plan. I did have and do have a vision that drives me. What I do in the moment is following my inner voice.

Choose your own happiness

My mantra at the moment is ‘I am so free’. I spoke about this in my previous vlog. I realise this moment never comes back. And life is about enjoying the moment. When you allow yourself to enjoy, you are already very wise. Many people are not capable to enjoy and choose their own happiness.

Stepping into the unknown & Trust

When you step into a new phase of life, many times you have to pay a price for it. The price often has to do with letting go, jumping into the unknown. That’s uncomfortable and sometimes costs pain.

If you make space to do nothing, the right things will come towards you. So even when you really want something, it’s the art of letting go and trust.

The deeper meaning of dreams

Before I made the decision to let go I had a dream. I dreamt that I was in Bali and that all of my clothes were stolen. Then I discovered in my dream that not only all of my clothes were stolen. Also my beautiful, handmade closet from Bali. This dream was telling me. Let go of your clothes that were representing my identity of what I am doing. And also to let go of my closet that was representing my house. I was living in my dream house that had become part of my identity.

Letting go of our ego

We identify ourselves with what we do, where we live, our house, our family, with who we spend time. All the things that makes us feel comfortable. This dream was big to me. I knew I had to let go of working with Ayahuasca for a while, but now also letting go of my dream house. That was the next step.

Who are you if you let go of everything?

When I woke up, I heard my inner voice asking me: Who are you when you let go of everything? The answer was: ‘I am just me and I am free.’ That felt so light, so free and so good that it motivated me to let go of all my ceremonies and my house.

Take time to listen

Take time to listen to your inner voice. Pay attention to your dreams and also take time to listen to other people. Many times in The Western World we are too busy and we are rushing through life. Start with taking the time for yourself and truly listen to what your inner voice has to say.

Where will I be a year from now?

The next step is to follow up on your inner voice. In the moment you don’t always know why we do the things. Trust that it will make sense on the long term. I just made the jump into the unknown again. I am curious where I will be in a year from now. Let’s take it step by step and see you next week in my vlog.

Terugblik 2020 – Vooruitzicht 2021

Wauw! Terugblikken op 2020. Het voelt alsof dit jaar vele hoofdstukken heeft gekend. In ieder geval 2 hele duidelijk. Dat is een hoofdstuk voor de Covid en een hoofdstuk terwijl de Covid crisis gaande is. Wat heeft dit voor mij gebracht? Hoe heb ik dit ervaren?

Vlog#55 Everything Happens for a Reason

I continue my journey on Bali and I feel so much inner peace, acceptance and appreciation. That’s exactly the spirit of the island. The energy in Ubud is so peaceful and relaxing. I don’t feel the need to achieve anything at the moment. Just live in the moment and being in the now. If you live in the now and you let life take control, everything can happen.
