Thank you all for your continuous support and appreciation 🙂 You would make me SO happy if you’d join me on the other, more active channels as well!
on Facebook, Instagram and of course on the website (that happens to have a cool newsletter and free online courses as well!)
Lots and lots of love,
89 degrees, 15 minutes and 50.8 seconds. That’s the current position of Polaris. The Northern Star. Viewed from another planet, it’s just one among many. But on Earth, it’s uniquely important. Fixed in place, an anchor. No matter where you are in the northern hemisphere, if you face Polaris, you face North. You know where you are. But there are other ways to get lost. In the choices we make. In events that overwhelm us. Even within our own minds. What can be an anchor then? What beacon can we turn to… to guide us from darkness to light?
We all have super powers. We might not be aware of them, we might not use them, but we all have them. We all own the power of thoughts. We are all able to design our lives, exactly the way we want them to be.
Living life as we do on a daily basis is the best way to lose touch with your true self. From a young age, we’re taught what is socially acceptable and what isn’t. You don’t tell lies, unless it’s a little white lie, that makes it okay. You don’t steal, unless there’s no other option. You are free to express yourself, as long as it fits in with your environment.
Every year spent functioning in ‘normal life’ makes you lose a part of yourself. You’ll adjust the tongue you’re speaking in. You’ll adjust the volume of your expressions. You change your passions in the ones that are for ‘your class’, within ‘your budget’ or within ‘your opportunities’. You don’t dance or shout or sing out loud whenever you feel like it, but in the safety and comfort of our own room, doors closed. You adjust the way you walk, talk, eat, drink, sleep and communicate. All because ‘fitting in’ is one of the most important things in this life…..
Looking back at your past relationships might make you feel as if you always pick the wrong person. And you know what? You might be right.
Us humans often carry a deep feeling of self-hatred within us. We once made the wrong choice, a wrong decision or we went against our gut feeling. By doing that, we betrayed ourselves. That gives us a feeling of unworthiness. We forgot how to love ourselves. For this or any other reason, we feel as if we deserve less. As if we don’t deserve love or happiness. Subconsciously, we will select the people around us based on that feeling. Actually kind of stupid, isn’t it? Most of it, is because we spend many years of our life, living a lie…
During my second visit in Ireland, I met the love of my life. Within three months, I found myself with my bags packed on a plane to Cork. If you ever plan to visit Ireland, I wouldn’t recommend Cork as a first choice. It sure is a great city to use as your ‘base camp’ for further exploration of Ireland. But if you didn’t rent a car or arranged any other form of transportation, the city can get boring pretty easily.

If I would have to describe Egypt in a few words, it would be ‘diving heaven’. Ask anyone who knows anything about diving, and they’ll give you Egypt as one of the places to be. I’ve spent many hours under the water and Egypt, still holds the number #1 diving location for me. I’ve been visiting North Africa for as long as I can remember, mostly spending our holidays in Tunisia. The North African culture has always felt like a home away from home to me. And after the many visits in Tunisia, Egypt absolutely didn’t disappoint.
