1. Hoe ziet jouw ideale leven er over 10 jaar uit ?

Een gelukkig gezinsleven staat steeds op de eerste plaats. Verder hoop ik heel creatief te blijven en mensen te blijven inspireren. Mijn droom is dat “Phuro! Be inspired!” een echt begrip wordt, niet om mezelf in de belangstelling te plaatsen, de boodschap blijft belangrijker dan diegene die de boodschap brengt ! De boodschap is ook universeel en niet gebonden aan enige religie of wat dan ook, daarom dat ik al wat vaker in het Engels blog.

Phuro is een complete mantra, een mantra die mensen inspireert om door te gaan. Babaji zei dat onze lichamen niet onsterfelijk zijn, inspirerende woorden zijn dat daarentegen wel. Ik hoop dat “Phuro” mijn nalatenschap mag zijn !

2. Wat droom je nog een keer te doen ?

Een wereldreis maken om de allermooiste plekken op aarde te gaan bezoeken. Ik zou ook alle mensen die ik doorheen de jaren heb leren kennen via Facebook en andere media willen opzoeken om een leuke tijd met hen beleven !

3. Met welk dier zou je jezelf willen vergelijken en waarom ?

Ik ben gefascineerd door zwarte panters. Het zijn krachtige en mysterieuze dieren. Ik heb steeds katten rondom mij gehad, waaronder twee gitzwarte exemplaren. Deze voelden zich steeds geroepen om mij te bewaken en hebben echt als beschermengelen gefungeerd. Buffy zou je zelfs zwaar hebben toegetakeld als je me zou bedreigen !

De zwarte panter draagt heel wat symboliek met zich mee en ik beschouw het dier als één van mijn totems. (De andere totem is de slang). Zo zijn er heel wat eigenschappen die ik met het dier gemeen heb en ik heb ook een tatoeage van een zwarte panter ! Misschien vertel ik daar wel meer over in een volgende blog !

4. In welk land zou jij willen wonen ?

Ik hou van afgezonderde plaatsen, ik zie me het liefst in de nabijheid van een meer wonen met heel veel bomen rond het huis. Ik zie mezelf al lekker knus geïnstalleerd in een boomhut ! Mijn voorkeur zou uitgaan naar Canada.

5. Heb je een wens gehad, die ooit is uitgekomen ?

Ik heb mijn soulmate gevonden, dé liefde van mijn leven. We schelen wel exact een halve meter, nu weet je meteen de echte reden waarom ik zo vaak hoge hakken draag 🙂

20170204_204753

6. Welk persoon heeft jou het meest geïnspireerd in je leven ?

Jezus en Babaji zijn de belangrijkste personen ! Ik ben niet echt katholiek opgevoed en van thuis uit zijn we nooit kerkgangers geweest, toch had ik als kind een connectie met Jezus. Ik herinner mij ook nog dat ik mij als kind verkleedde als Maria, en één van mijn poppen was surrogaat voor Jezus…ik heb hier zelfs nog fotobewijs van !

Tijdens mijn “apenjaren” kwam mijn geloof op een zwak pitje te staan en toen ik later door een zwarte periode ging, had ik het meest aan de leer van Babaji. Door hem ben ik echt het spirituele pad opgegaan en vielen alle puzzelstukken langzaam op zijn plaats.

See the ant. How small is the ant, yet how big a load she carries.
You should not be dejected or disheartened.
If we want; we can blow the whole of this mountain- if we all want; if we have Will. Don’t lose your hearts in this small Work.
When you lose your heart, when you lose courage- this is death.
Don’t lose courage. 
You can move the mountain !

Babaji

7. Heb je een quote die je graag hoort ?

Ja, natuurlijk ! Er zijn er echter zoveel dat ik amper kan kiezen ! Maar deze is wel heel toepasselijk voor de Sunshine blogger award !

DGqwm1KU0AEcBJd

8. Welke doelstellingen heb jij voor 2018 gesteld ?

Vooral trouw blijven aan mezelf en enkele persoonlijke en universele barrières doorbreken ! Meer vertel ik hier niet over, dat is iets tussen God en mij ! Shhhhttttt !!!

9. Wat vind je het leukste om te doen in je leven ?

Mensen inspireren om hun ware zelf te vinden. Ik vind het altijd leuk om horen wanneer mensen zeggen dat ik ze aan het denken zet…

10.   Hoe zou je jezelf in een woord omschrijven ?

quote20

Een mysterie !!!

11. Ben je sportief en zo ja waar hou je dan van ?

Ik hou me niet intensief bezig met sporten maar ben van nature soepel en lenig, daarom doe ik heel graag yoga. Ik wandel ook graag. Als ik mij echt wil uitleven, dan zet ik muziek op en spring ik op mijn crosstrainer !

Between breaths

“In a dream, in a vision of the night, while slumbering on their beds, then He opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction.” 

Book of Job (33: 15-16)

It’s 9 am and you are sitting at your desk in front of your computer. Are you ready for take off ? Ready to face all challenges ?

The course of your day might depend on how it actually started. Let us rewind for a moment. What were you thinking of before you arrived at your workplace, when you were driving in your car ?

When you were at home, were you arguing with your spouse at the breakfast table ? Were you rushing to get the kids ready for school, were you screaming and shouting or running around like a headless chicken ?

When you heard your alarm going off this morning and you pushed the snooze button, how were you feeling ? Were you anxious to get out of bed, thinking : “All that awaits is another shitty day in the office” ? Well, isn’t that enough stress to start your day with ?

Why don’t you take some time to balance yourself and take control over the course of your day ?

Two key moments of the day is the morning when you wake up, when you open your eyes and the moment before you go to sleep, when you shut your eyes.

The morning is used to determine your vision. While you are still in bed, start by focusing on your breath, inhale slowly and deeply through your nose, exhale gently through your mouth. What do you exactly desire today ? Evoke a mental picture of your ideal day.

Keep breathing at a gentle pace and try to notice the pause beween your breaths, between filling and emptying your lungs.

If you increase this pause without forcing your breathing, your mind will become quieter, and a quiet mind means a powerful mind. You can access a natural state of higher consciousness.

Have you ever looked at a sunset, or a spectacular landscape and felt in awe ? Didn’t you say afterwards : “That moment just took my breath away” ? Didn’t your thinking cease aswell ?

The evening is intended to revise the day. Start to focus on your breath as you did in the morning. Rewind your day to see what has happened. This might be difficult in the beginning, but you’ll make progress very easily ! Once you’ve fully mastered this revision technique, you can put certain moments on hold.

Scenes for example that you would prefer to see differently, more enjoyable, you can start adjusting according to your preference !

Make sure you don’t cling on to fearful situations. Do not go to sleep constantly repeating all the bad stuff that has happened in your life. It’s important that you have a clear image of what you want and a positive feeling should accompany it. If you can’t imagine a positive outcome, you better focus on a positive statement or you can silently chant “OM” or repeat another mantra.

If you feel you are losing control during the day and troublesome emotions are bubbling up, use a breathing technique such as Freeze Frame® or Quick Coherence® developed by the HeartMath institute to bring you back into this balanced state. Always try to visualize a feel good situation, imagine yourself in your happy place just as Happy Gilmore did !

This vision and revision technique will help you “clean up” daily and you will consciously choose to steer your life in the direction you want.

It wil also help you build a pause between stimulus and response, before you react to the external stimuli around you.

Remember today is the first day of the rest of your life. Every day offers you a chance for renewal, every day is a gift !

Life loves you. Give that love back by putting it in yourself first and stop your negative self-talk, your oppressive, restrictive thoughts and focus on the good.

Tell it as it is

It’s that time of the year…everyone is instigating eachother with germs. I was amongst the unlucky ones this week and got struck, I really felt miserable, unable to write, just feeling the need to rest and to sleep !

Monday I promised someone to be present at a meeting to offer him support but I was obliged to cancel it. By the end of the day, I had lost my voice completely !

I am still wondering whether this was a good thing or a bad thing. Soccer meetings are dangerous and can even get me mixed up further. I tell you why.

No one is speaking their truth anymore. No one “tells it as it is”. Sometimes there’s a lot of gossip going around before the meeting and you assume people will mention all of this…untill they are standing face to face with the person concerned, then they completely shut down !

So what follows is that me, highly sensitive as I am, after “reading” and collecting all the members’ frustrations I just spit them out ! There’s nothing funny about that really !

Before you have completed a sentence, there’s the moderator of the meeting, getting in defensive/aggressive mode, acting more as a buffer zone between the board and us.

It’s a constant play of throwing the ball back and forth without getting to a real solution. A game none of us can win. You might aswell play bullshit bingo…

A lot of people don’t realize that you can regard any group, company, club as a person. It has a spirit too. You don’t need a crystal ball to know that a sick mind will take sick actions eventually, there’s no difference with group “spirits”. I am convinced the board of our soccer club has a completely different agenda than ours.

There’s lack of focus, lack of vision, no structure at all. Instead of regarding their youthplayers as their potential and taking action towards their growth, supporting us with material and other needs, they are just sucking the life completely out of us ! It’s like they are slowly letting us bleed to death….

Being a strong advocate of putting the right man or woman at the right place, I even offered my services to help them but there was barely interest. All they could see was my wrapping paper that said “woman and blond”, useless to say I got my hands off it and these gentlemen lost an opportunity for good…

Do I often go to these meetings ? I used to …but not anymore, I am a lover, not a fighter ! I am a doer, not a talker ! They know I will be back when instead of arguing they will be inspired to take some real action !

And for those with eyes to see and ears to listen : all useful coaching information is on my website…

Pharug

“Pharug”- You might have thought what this term is. Search for it, and I am of the opinion that you won’t get the answer. Its because it is me, who coined this word by joining two words- Pharma and Drugs. Read more : Pharug.

Swag up !

“Hon, can you fix my Mini Cooper ?”

“Are you kidding, look at it ! It is missing a tyre and its rear mirrors !”

“I still have them somewhere…”

“The lights are popping out..It already had a short circuit !”

“I know you can make him look decent again. You got some strong glue, right ?”

“You really do believe in fairy tales ! It’s a total loss ! Believe me, you better say farewell to it. I promise I will get you another one.”

“I’m not giving up on him yet ! With a few adjustments he just might have his wings back !”

“Can’t you just let it go ? You steered that thing completely crazy !”

“But I adore him, he makes people smile. And he has the Union Jack roof !”

“Like it’s the only one with that trait !”

“Why must I always be surrounded by people who don’t understand me ? Jack just needs his mojo back…”

“I’ll see what I can do to swag him up babe….”

“Thanks hon, I know you can do this !”

Jack definitely isn’t dead yet…

Do you believe ?

Recently a friend’s 10-year-old saw the tattoos on my wrists and she started asking questions.

“Why do you have a cross tattooed on your arm ? Do you believe in Jesus ?”, she asked. I told her : “Yes I do”.

She looked surprised. “No one goes to church anymore”, she said. “Me neighter”, I confessed.

“Jesus didn’t say we had to follow a church or a religion”, I continued. “He was showing us the way how we could find God within ourselves. People worship his image instead of really listening to what he has to say. The cross became a symbol of death instead of faith and ressurection !

72 Babaji & Christ

Babaji and Jesus

Painting by Nayaswami Jyotish

She turned to my right arm this time. “And what is this ?”, she asked. This is the OM symbol”, I said. “It’s the vibration of the universe, the first sound ever made on earth, it is the sound of God.”

I pulled a 136,10 tuning fork out of my bag. “Close your eyes”, I asked. “C’mon, you can trust me”. I stroke the tuning fork on my knee and I held it close to her ear. She immediately opened her eyes when she heard the sound. She was in awe !

“You can use this OM fork when you meditate, it will get you easily in a calm and peaceful state.”

“You can also use it when you are chanting mantras. Mantras carry blessings. My favorite one is “Om Namah Shivaya”. It is a mantra given by Haidakhan Babaji to his devotees all around the world. He brought a message of truth, love, simplicity and service to mankind.”

“Just as Jesus did ?” the little girl asked.

“Yes exactly”, I said ! “They do have a lot in common. They are both avatars.”

She really got interested when she heard that word. “You mean kind of like Aang ?”

I nodded. “Avatars usually come to earth for a restricted period of time to guide people on the path of liberation and to show them their own divinity. They come to rekindle the fire in people’s hearts. Some are even amongst us right now, without our knowing. They are here, behind the scenes, ready to help us !”

She was a little dazzled now ! “So you have two avatar symbols on your body !”, she proclaimed !

“That’s one way of seeing it”, I answered. “For me they are just reminders to send forth blessings to mankind and to never forget who we are !”

Phuro! Be inspired!

Breathe Motherf*cker !

“Power is within us all. Anything can be overcome by going within. Recognizing that is great, and great for all.”

Wim Hof

Whoever has done mindfulness, yoga, meditation or heart coherence exercices knows that instructors and teachers ask to focus on the breath to access that calm, peaceful state and to relax mind and body !

I personnaly use Heartmath’s Emwave pro at home, I already tested it with several adults and children and it works amazingly well. It uses different kinds of vizualisations combined with breathing exercices to achieve heartcoherence.

While I was searching for an article on the internet, I came across an interview with Wim Hof. He is an exceptional guy from the Netherlands. Wim, “the Iceman”, has 21 guiness book records on his name : the longest icebath, finishing a marathon barely clothed in freezing temperatures,…

Wim is often mentioned in mental coaching, he is the perfect example of what man is really capable of if he has the will to do it ! The core of his method is a breathing technique.

I was sitting on my couch, headphone on and I started to listen to this interview with Wim. Well he was actually guiding a man through a breathing exercice and I decided to give it a try too. I closed my eyes and it felt as if I was sitting there too, almost as if Wim was talking to me.

It was an amazing experience, because the results were almost the same as in this video ! While I am already skillful when it comes to heartcoherence, I had never really tried to hold my breath for that long !

I really love the way Wim explains the process you are going through. He tells you exactely what is happening in a direct and simple way.

His method is scientifically tested and validated and Wim is sharing this with everyone ! You can find his method on his youtube channel where you have access to a bunch of his teaching videos.

Just be sure that you follow his instructions carefully and that when you are doing the breathing exercice you are in a safe place at home, in bed or on a couch. Never do this while you are in bath or in your car ! You could feel too dizzy and lightheaded or even faint !

If you would like to be able to defy the cold temperatures, to boost your immune system, increase your performances and access your own healing powers, I really recommend that you give Wim’s method a try.

And isn’t winter the excellent time to test his method and have that personal experience ? I dare you to give it a try ! Don’t worry I am not going to spare myself from the challenge eighter !

Feel free to share your findings afterwards with words, pictures or videos !

This cold challenge could be a gold challenge !
