Love

On bending a spoon

I may have told you before that I was in London recently, attending a workshop by the famous Elizabeth Gilbert (she wrote Eat, Pray, Love). And after that workshop I flew on to Dallas to meet my wonderful friend Laura, who I knew had attended on of Elizabeth Gilbert's workshops, this one however with the equally famous Martha Beck. So Laura told me that Martha made the whole room bend spoons. And I was like: what??? So Laura showed me. And I tried. And I couldn't. And I sat with it. And the next [...]

Am I in love?

There's a book I have been reading on and off lately. It's called The Book of She - Your Heroine's Journey into the Heart of Feminine Power I have a kind of love/hate relationship with this book. Similar to back in the days when I read the book 'Women Who Run with Wolves' People were raving about it, suggested I read it. I did, or let's say I tried. But didn't really 'get it'. Much of this She-book is in line with what I coach my clients on. Some of it is a bit too 'spiritual', too 'feminine' to [...]

The reason I'm asking is that I meet a lot of women who seem to be stressed by this whole month of preparing for something they then do not really enjoy.

I need a vacation but if we leave for the holidays my family will be upset (guilt). I don't really want to go to my in-laws for Christmas (unhap [...]

The powerful circle of a happy life

The other day I had an epiphany! I had the striking realisation that I am at the right place at the right moment, that what I do makes sense and has a purpose and that I am blessed with a wonderful circle of people supporting me in my journey. A few things contributed to that moment. The physical thing. I had an amazing Reiki session with my dear friend and spiritual sister, who always makes my body talk so that I can understand and puts all the wheels and cogs turning in the right direction aga [...]

How to be sexy and why it’s good for you

I don't know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot. -- Marilyn Monroe   During my pregnancies I did not feel sexy, although my then husband kept telling me I was. After having my boys, I felt the opposite of sexy. My body had changed, I didn't recognize it anymore and I felt like a walking milk machine. I only wanted to wear comfortable clothes and shoes because I had to pop a boob out on command, run after a toddler constantly, pick up toys, food and clothes all the time and [...]

51 insightful ways to find happiness and live a purposeful life

When you ask people what they really want in life, most of the time happiness is in their top three list. Happiness is not easily defined as it means different things to each one of us. Lately though, more and more research goes into that direction and people seem to be more mindful about the simple pleasures in life. Living in the now is no longer just a new age term someone wrote about in a self help book. So if we all want it, why is it so hard to get? You can't buy it (or actually, you CAN a [...]
