My life in Bali has been pretty magical! All is happening with divine timing yihaaaaa. When sometimes the Universe has to shake you up to wake you up. Life, the divine, God wants you toooooo ‘win’ woohooo! Life is never happening against you. Everything that is playing out in your life right now is happening for you. Perfectly. Everything has purpose: the people you meet, and all the circumstances. And maybe you don’t see it today or tomorrow why things are happening the way they do. One day you will look back and be like DANG! You will be no longer a victim of circumstances. Because everything has it’s purpose. More
Be careful what you wish for you just might get it. These couple of weeks I have been saying so many times that when I would see a cat in need that I would help out. Little did I know that became a reality. I don’t know if it’s me or the magical vibes of Bali but things seem to be pretty magical around here. More
“The universe will shake you up to wake you up. Ain’t that the truth. How did I end up in this mess? I’m sitting in the bus from Kuala Lumpur Airport to KL Sentral and all I can think about is how I managed to lose €300,- in a couple of days. I’m staring outside. Cars are passing by. I focus my eyes on the raindrops that slide down from the window. And I notice all the big billboards down the road. I ask myself: “Do these advertisement messages actually make an impact on people to buy all the shit they don’t need? More
Are you willing to let go of old thought patterns? Are you willing to program the mind to attract the life that you want? If the answers is yes then you already understand that you hold the key to all possibilities. Once you awakened you realize that you are creating your reality through the energy of your consciousness, with your whole being. The question is how do we come to a point in our life that we are able to reprogram/program our minds? Here are 3 ways that can help you to reprogram your subconscious mind: More
“Didn’t you even ran outside? I would run as fast as I could.” – A friend replied to my message. I just had seen a snake in my bathroom while I was utterly naked and at my most vulnerable. And the crazy thing about it was that I didn’t even scream. The only thing I was freaking out about was the old skin that the snake left behind. I was semi-disgusted but at the same time, I wanted to look it from up close. Later on, I realized that the snake and I were not so different from each other at all. I was in a big transition phase too and was shredding some layers. This is what the snake symbol teaches us: More
Ever since I started ‘following’ the signs my life has been truly magical. Magic truly exists. Nothing is ever a coincidence. You just have to decide for yourself how magical a synchronicity is. That’s why we need to get out of own minds in order to 👁 that the universe is providing everything we need at that exact moment. Follow the signs – it will not lead you astray 😉 More
‘How do I know I’m on the right path?’ This is a question I have been asking myself a lot of times. When I graduated from college in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in media and communication, I felt lost after being so focused all the time. I was chasing deadline to deadline and was feeling really comfortable with it. After my graduation, I felt like sleepwalking without any purpose. The feeling of loneliness and confusion (and a relationship of 6 years that ended) left me in pain because the change seemed like a crazy rollercoaster I had no control of.
So I decided to follow my biggest dream to find myself again. And oh boy that blooming was the best gift I could ever give to myself. The best part of getting lost was finding myself. So If you have ever asked yourself, ‘Am I on the right path?’ – This is where you begin. We are all worthy of a life that excites us.
As a solo traveler, I have been asked so many times “why on earth I would travel alone?” Some people think it’s really brave of me to go out there and explore the world. And some of them think I’m utterly nuts because it’s a dangerous world out there. “Where is the fun in traveling alone?” Here is why I do what I do and I love what I’m doing. This is what I learn as a solo female traveler:
“Hold up, wait a minute. Are my eyes seeing what they are seeing?” I blinked my eyes twice and they got all sparkly. I just had seen two pyramids while driving in Ubud. All I could think of was; “I need to go there one day. A year later I did. My experience in The Pyramids of Chi in Bali left me in awe. More
In my hidden gems and sanctuary, I will take you on a journey to my discoveries in South East Asia. This time I’m saying hello from ‘sticky island’ in Southern Thailand. These are two of my most favorite magical places in Koh Phangan:
“I don’t wanna leave Bali.” Said a scared voice in my head. I just knew in my heart it was time to make a change of scenery and self. I had the chance to travel in Bali and Lombok with my parents and best friend for one month. Beautiful times we had! We created awesome memories together, never missed a sunset and did a lot of fun road trips on the bike. All of the sudden the time speeded up; a month had already passed and it was time for them to leave the island. More
Once I opened my eyes. The sky never looked as mesmerizing as before. The colors around me never as vivid. What did change I thought to myself? The world around me didn’t change. I did. I found stillness in-between useless thoughts and endless worrying. And the more I observed the present moment the more I could see the beauty in the smallest things. My eyes cannot unsee what eye see now and I am forever grateful. Magic still exists and I found myself a whole lotta magic in Lombok, Indonesia. This is my photoblog: More
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 across a field of beautiful yellow flowers and the 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
