This must have been one of my most random blog posts title ever. As I’m writing this I’m scratching the back of my head. These past weeks have been so freaking incredible crazy. I have experienced so many synchronicities that all I can do is surrender, relax and enjoy the ride with a big smile on my face. More
All that’s left are these beautiful memories we made along our journey. These moments that are imprinted in my mind, my being. Myanmar made my magical life come to life. It was like I found pieces of my heart when I traveled through this Golden land. More
Part one of the film Inner Worlds, Outer Worlds. Akasha is the unmanifested, the “nothing” or emptiness which fills the vacuum of space. As Einstein realized, empty space is not really empty. Saints, sages and yogis who have looked within themselves have also realized that within the emptiness is unfathomable power, a web of information or energy which connects all things. More
I stumbled a cross a field of beautiful yellow flowers and only one really caught my eye. This flower sparked something within my heart/mind; an old memory of being scared to walk in my own truth. An old memory of feeling misunderstood, a feeling of being comfortable living in my own shell. But this flower that really caught my eye was the most beautiful flower of them all because it also reminded me something else. More
Last year I was asked on Instagram if I would fancy a day of tubing in the wild rivers of Bali for an American television show called Xtremewaterparks. Ehm, hello saying no would not even be an option: I’m a thrill seeker and I love to jump into the unknown. Little did I know that the day of shooting would be on the same day I had to fly to Kuala Lumpur. But I thought let’s call it a mission then. More
I still remember the day we both went our separate ways. You held me hostage. I almost suffocated. You brought me to my knees and I begged for mercy. It took some time to heal, to pick up the pieces. And it was such a relief to jump towards the light back then. But here we are again, dammit. At the point where I just knew you would come back and hang around. Hello, darkness my old friend I have come to talk with you again.
I already felt you scratching the surface for a while. Like a buzzing sound in my ear. Like scratching fingernails on the blackboard. I just knew you would eventually come again. Normally I would give you a smile and run away, but I will tell you this. It’s okay you paid me a visit because what you and I have right now will be glorious in another moment. That moment will be my rising. More
Okay, this may be a super late and random post, but I was looking through all my travel photos and I realllly want to share this photo blog about the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh, Cambodia! A year ago my journey began in Ho Chi Min City. From this Vietnamese crazy vibrant capital, we traveled all the way down to an island called Phu Qoc. After spending a week on the island we decided to continue our travels to Cambodia. More
When life is challenging you. It wants to make sure you go level up. To taste your own darkness in order to transform it into light. You see.. to become the radical self-lover you are, you have to break open. Embrace the rupture and move through it. Feel it with your whole being. Feel every emotion, because in order for you to become whole you need to embrace the light and darkness. This is the spiritual journey. More
I spent so many years hiding in my spiritual closet. I have always felt I had a message to share. All these years I was holding back the fierceness of what my soul wanted to share. She is ready to burst out and transform into this unapologetic wild woman that’s standing in her own truth. Because how can I be truly free if we keep certain parts hidden inside of me? It’s time to show the world who we are. Wholeheartedly and messy. The rising and the fall. Don’t contain yourself. More
I know, I know. I cringe whenever I hear the word spirituality. I think it’s because the word itself has no real definition. And in my opinion spirituality in The Netherlands has some kind of dull image of people who love angelic statues. Not that I want to offend people who love angelic statues with this blog posts, but I feel like we can make spirituality sexier. So what’s a spiritual path all about? More
I have been a rebel all my life. Especially when I think about the society I was brought up in. Modern society tells us how to behave, how to act, how to do well in school and eventually teach our kids to do the same thing. It’s like an endless cycle of routines that kills our creativity. And this begins at a young age in school. Are you a product of the society you life in or are you a product of your own creativity and imagination? For the dreamers I would say: keep on dreaming! Check out the animated video below to get inspired.
Sometimes you come at a point when you start thinking about some chapters of your life. This is an open letter, an ode to an old lover, an old friend I have lost along the way. Someone once told me that life is like a train ride. And every time the train stops, people will get out. At the next station, other people will take the ride with you. Some people are not meant to be in your life forever. You just have to know when to let go.
A couple of years ago I saw this footage of Eartha Kitt from her documentary All by my self (1982). The actress (known for her role in batwoman) is spitting some truths that I can totally relate to. “When you fall in love, what is there to compromise about?” A powerful message you need to hear once in a while.
On the 18th of February I turned 25. THE BIG 2-5 and I decided to do a video of all the life lessons I have learned before turning 25. I love to tell stories with a message about being this spiritual G being in this weird ass physical world lololol. It’s not always pretty, it’s confusion, it’s growth, it’s falling, it’s rising, it’s glowing. 😏 yep it’s beautiful. These are some of the life lessons I have learned (still have to learn) It’s all progress. Watch the video here: More

I am taking you on a journey to my discoveries. This time I am saying hellooooo from Amsterdam. While traveling through South East Asia I shared my favorite hidden gems and sanctuary’s on the blog. I may be back in The Netherlands, but my wandering soul is still alive and kicking. Check out this urban jungle/comfi working place: Zoku in Amsterdam: More
