Energy management

“If you listen to your body when it whispers, you won’t have to hear it scream…”

After a car accident, whiplash and burnout, I had to learn how to manage my energy in a different way. My trusty ‘turbo button’ was broken. I had to learn to listen to my body. Healthy eating, yoga, meditation, healthy exercise, taking it easy, letting go, listening. An adventurous journey, not always easy, that is still ongoing.

When a friend asked if I wanted to join him for a two day medical ‘prescan’ trip to Germany, my first reaction was ‘no way!’ Why would I put my healthy body through all kinds of medical procedures? But then I realized that my mom just had breast cancer [...]

Peyote Whisperer?

2018-12-16T16:21:31+02:00

When I told my friend Randall Rodrigues about my weird connection with a group of Peyote cacti in Amsterdam, he said: “So you are like a Peyote whisperer?” I laughed it off, but in the days following his remark I explored this strange connection and concluded that – as weird [...]

I’d lost my mojo

2019-01-22T14:03:30+02:00

I’d lost my mojo – my spark. And I hadn’t even realised. Until I came across it again in Brazil, after a cruise with 150 digital nomads. I had been struggling with my health for over ten months. Apparently I had asked more of myself than was sensible after the whiplash [...]

And then there was silence…

2018-12-16T15:27:01+02:00

Five days of no talking, reading, writing, or making phone calls. No internet, social media, music, TV, computers or any other form of distraction. I have just been on one of these silence retreats. To my surprise so many asked about my experiences that I decided to write them down [...]

It’s exactly a year ago today that I got whiplash from a car accident on Curaçao. At first, I thought I had needed to learn a wise lesson (‘slow down!’) and that a few months later my life would be back to ‘normal’. I now realise things will never be [...]
