A twenty-five year adventure aka my career

November 11, 2021

Never in my life had I pictured my career the way it actually happened. If you would’ve told me the story beforehand, I probably would’ve thought it was both unbelievable—and unenjoyable. Life had a few surprises in store for me, most I didn’t see coming. Quite a few were only enjoyable with hindsight—and …

When your heart ❤️ says yes, but your mind says no

July 9, 2021

It’s a very common situation. I often see this happening with clients—and of course I have my fair share of experience with this as well. You see something or you have an idea. It could be to purchase a book, an online program, a house, or go out for dinner with your best friend. And your heart says YES! This…

How to distinguish between your fear and your intuition

June 28, 2021

It's one of the most common mistakes I see. You are trying to make a decision and you want to listen to your intuition. So you listen to the signs of your body. You ask yourself "How does it feel?" And you notice a nervousness or tension in your stomach. So you conclude this thing is not for you, because your inn…

I was afraid to be seen

June 23, 2021

We’re all afraid of sharing some part of ourselves with the world. For me it’s a continuous evolution of sharing with an increasingly larger crowd that I am the spokeswoman for the Carriers of Light. I noticed that when I host live meditations on Insight Timer, I avoid mentioning the Carriers. I pretend I’m…

Your dreams are your steering mechanism

May 25, 2021

You can have what you dream of. You just need to believe it yourself. Do not give up on your dreams because they do not unfold as expected. Do not give up on your dreams because the work is infinitely harder than you had imagined. Do not give up on your dreams because you lose hope. Find hope in what has already …

I dared greatly and I failed

May 4, 2021

Three weeks ago I did my first live meditation on Insight Timer. It was a disaster. I’ve been a teacher on the world's largest meditation app since the summer, and in November I was lucky enough to be enrolled into the LIVE function. That function allows you to host a meditation live on the app. I signed up for…

How to remove your obstacle to bliss

April 19, 2021

Bliss is our natural state. It is who we are at our core in our most natural habitat. We are beings of love and light and when we are fully immersed in the flow the love pours from us without effort. You can see it in children and their smiling faces. Everything is an adventure, an opportunity. They’re very trusti…

How do to deal with a situation that triggers you

April 2, 2021

In a recent group call we spoke about a situation where something had happened for a participant and we looked at what had triggered the event (the underlying layer). Once I shared my insights someone asked: How can we once we are in a situation and we are triggered and it feels off, deal with that without being d…
