high vibrational, down to earth
I'm a Dutch resident in the coastal region of that quaintly shaped country I was born and raised in. I've mostly always been very practical, although spiritual in the loosest possible sense*. Through the magic of my life's journey however I was introduced to a beauty and perfection I could not have imagined in my wildest dreams (at some point to my surprise I discovered these concepts are not even new to the physics field of science and for example Einstein. Most people don't even know what has already partly been in the last century and more & more continues to be discovered – by esteemed and decorated scientists from for example MIT, Stanford etc – that supports a vèry different way of being and reality than what we've been told and believed for ages. One that would shock and blow people's minds). Which naturally came with getting more and more spiritual over the years, while still very down to earth. Enjoying the best of both worlds I guess. For me the perfect combination and fully embodying 'my spiritual self having a human experience' as they say, although usually not in that context. To me the human or earthly aspect equally important, it's what we came here to experience.
author, designer, passionate creator
As well as the creator we all are in essence. Another aspect I guess I've always naturally embraced as there is no real limit to the kind of thing I enjoy when it comes to creating. Whatever is able to make something, I'm likely open to and loving it. Like Albert Einstein said: "I have no special talents. I'm only passionately curious.", which definitely applies to me too. As well as always seeing possibilities & solutions, even if there don't seem to be any. And for some reason I keep seeing them, no matter how impossible something may seem at some point even for me. But always coming from and following my heart & intuition. To me the key to living and being our best self, as well as the easiest way to move through life, whatever the circumstances. Most of what I've come to do is simply from the desire to create something following an idea, sudden inspiration or hunch and learning new things along the way. Which helped me to improve several skills tremendously over the years, however because of how I do things - like following my heart and intuition - always automatically in a very natural and playful way.
driven by inspiration
This website is the result of my writing endeavors. One of those things that started to brew inside of me while the Universe had been throwing numerous signs and messages about it for quite some time already. Getting increasingly stronger and harder to deny. It had become crystal clear I'm meant to not just write, but publish my work. The initial book, a memoir, it all started with is nowhere close to the publishing-stage yet, but in the meantime - to my own surprise - the inspiration for writing poems (and other books) started to arise. Related to some of the magic I mentioned at the homepage. One day I felt and knew they were meant for the world to see and enjoy. Around the same time another publishing route became apparent. One I've had the general idea for a couple of years already, but the actual ideas for that suddenly also came pouring in. An oracle deck in which I've combined two very different things wrapped in a fun & contemporary cover.
The rest on here is just to showcase my other creative passions I once or still have I feel like sharing. Because it's all a part of who I am. As well as the proud results of always having found uncommon ways, while often making impossible choices to do or create something in the tiniest of steps whenever and in whatever way I could, despite extremely challenging circumstances all those years. It's in my blood and what makes me happier than anything.
* basically this was always a deep knowing there's more between heaven and earth. I've also always had an interest and was open to the unconventional and sixth sense type stuff
