When Core Unworthiness Gets in the Way of Your Success

Learn to truly receive what you deserve

Success doesn’t just come and find you. You have to go out and get it.

Do you agree? And what about this one:

Successful people always ask for exactly what they want.

Both statements require that you believe you are worth that success and happiness, and exactly here is where you might get triggered in your core unworthiness.

Do you sometimes struggle with directly asking what you want or when somebody asks you what you desire you experience a black-out?

Changes are big that your core unworthiness is playing out.

In general, happy and successful people seem to master asking exactly what they want. Your definitions of success will be different from mine, but asking for what we want, expressing our needs and desires makes life so much easier. It improves our relationships, brings clarity and avoids nasty things like passionately aggressive revenging our partner without realizing we didn’t ask for what we wanted in the first place.

This piece is about the art of really asking for what you want by looking into the most common blockages you might have in doing so.

Giving and receiving in life

I struggled for the most part of my life in putting myself first. This is because I am highly empathic, I always believed there was virtue in being modest, and I told myself I simply love giving more than receiving. I believe this is what a lot of people do.

This changed recently.

I realized it is not at all that easy for me to truly receive.

Tune into yourself for a moment. Can you truly receive a well-meant compliment, a warm hug, your boss giving thumbs up or your parents suddenly praising you over your career?

Look deep inside and be honest.

When you don’t really know, let’s do a short and easy experiment.

Next time, track how you respond when you get that compliment, reward, hug, praise. Do you say: yeah yeah and turn away? Or do you fully take it in?

With does fully taking in means?

The essence of it is that you feel the energy and love and reward in your heart and the core of your being. It makes you glow deep inside and you experience that fully taking it in makes the giver also happier. It’s a win-win.

You can compare it with a breath you fully take in.

Keep that hug for a moment longer and breathe the love of it in, enjoying it. This is all for you. You deserve it. There is no mind saying; yeah, yeah. yeah.

The yeah, yeah, yeah means — for a lot of people — this: back off, you are coming too close to my pain of not being able to fully love myself.

You are worth it

In the core of each and every one of us, we have our (core) worthiness. Our right to be on this planet, the warm bath when we arrived in our family and were raised with love, or the opposite.


Maybe you experienced not enough of this or even a downright unsafe place where you grew up. Maybe you walked away from home. Believe me, most of us, if not everybody, has suffered to some degree from a lack of safety and some kind of traumatic experiences.

This all gets stored in your body and psyche and puts layers of shame and self-blame around the diamond you are. Around your core worthiness

You don’t feel that shining pulsating diamond anymore, and another self-image replaces the hurt that is deep inside. To compensate, you are going to chase success in modern society. But all you are chasing is compliments, love, affection, and confirmation.

Here is the problem: These expressions of love always come from other human beings, not from money or Facebook likes. When you can’t access the place anymore to truly receive that love, the people around you will also cease to give it to you and you might end up trying to fill that big empty hole deep in your soul with addictions or more money.

At the end of that healing process I was able to say: Guess what, I am damn perfect, I rock. I am a loving person with great talents and deserve all the love in the world.

I open my heart to fully receive the infinite love I deserve in this life

Say this sentence a couple of times, how does it feel?

These are called affirmations. They can help you when your core worth feels small at times, or when it flushed down the toilet of your harsh self-judgment.

And hey, it’s OK. We all, every human on this planet, have to deal at some level with this core unworthiness. And our path home is different for all of us too. It is up to you to find the best modality to heal your trauma. They are all around you when you start looking.

Know your value

When you have made contact with your core worthiness, it is time to evaluate what you can do, what your gift is. Where do you bring value to other people?

Maybe you know what your gift is, what you’re good at, but you haven’t found a way yet to bring it to the world, let alone make a decent income out of it.

Stick with me for a moment, you are not alone

Successful people know their value. They generally have a lot of self-confidence.

Research related to confidence and success shows this:

“One thing is certain: every study conducted in the past 50 years on self-confidence and success has proven that the two are at least related. That is, self-confident people are more successful in all areas of life. And successful people have a high level of self-confidence.” — CFNC.ORG

The confident people around us generally don’t doubt to ask a very reasonable price for their service

Since they are worth it, and they know it.

How come?

This starts with the deeper layer of core worthiness first. When they were born, life was throwing firecrackers, garlands and the birthday cake was big, fat and abundant.

Some people have that start. But many haven’t.

Other people fight. They learn from each defeat, each rejection. It shapes their character and molds their modesty. From all that sweat and blood they can really value the place they worked themselves into.

And some people remain for a long time the victim of what happened to them. They don’t even bother to start the fight since facing the pain related to the trauma is too much to bear for their psyche. That’s all good, nothing to make wrong here.

Life can be a long and winding road to finally finding your deeper treasure, your pile of gold and then you realize it was you all the time running away from it.

0 89G_q_f2v6xs1sxO

Take your time

It took me nearly 30 years to truly embrace the self-love I was worth all along the journey. I just couldn’t fully access it before.

And let me tell you one more thing.

After embracing my full value, scraping every inch of “You got this” from my soul, the true abundance I feel is not in money.

Only in the connection with other open hearts, my deeper core worthiness comes alive and thrives. It is the heartbeat of life deeply pulsating with each blissful beat. In that space, it becomes possible to take in love, touch, care from others with the core of my being.

This all starts with an opening that connection in yourself to your core worthiness. For this, you will need others. It’s not a lonely hero’s journey ‘to make it alone’. It is becoming humble, vulnerable and a search for people where you feel safe with, that can guide you and where you can heal together.

No money or success will ever buy you a deep-felt healing heart connection that is received and given fully without any holding back.

Do you know what the fun of all this is? Once you embrace that self-love, you will be able to ask for it more and more and people will be so willing to give you, and give you, and give you more.

And never forget you can be the first person to start giving. Try it right now, hug the person closest to you with that intention.

Love is free. There is a universe full of it.

How to Start Living a More Heart-Directed Life?

Open up more and embrace the true virtues of your heart to feel more joy

The main qualities of the heart are compassion, forgiveness, generosity, gratefulness, acceptance, Love and wisdom.

Old mystics, Zen Buddhists and wise men all over the world have studied the essence of life and awareness for ages. They all come back to the immense intelligence and wisdom of the heart and its ability to connect to other hearts, and they have discerned the heart as the place of virtue.

One of the masters in my life, the meditation teacher Burgs, explains in his books and videos that it is enough to spend 1/3 of our time towards ourselves, and 2/3 of our time towards others to become truly happy and fulfilled people.

It takes mindfulness to come to a human life
and than above that,
It takes mindfulness and virtue
to come to a fortunate human life — Burgs

Burgs teaches meditation for people to stop the constant blur of the mind and start being open to the infinite wisdom of the heart.

I believe the souls of people have to wake up first to a certain degree to make the conscious choice to live our lives in virtue, with helping others rather than struggle the infinite ego struggle, being caught up daily in everlasting conflicts, triggers and negative

self-confirming habit patterns. Ergo, to be victims of our lives.

How to Start Living a More Heart-Directed Life?

“You have to teach your heart and mind to sing together, than you’ll hear the sound of your soul” — zen wisdom

To achieve this is not easy and different for everybody. Some need to rock bottom in their addiction, some have to completely live out their toxicity to realize that it brings them nowhere. Some have an instant awakening experience.

I believe millions of people around the world have woken up to a certain degree during the last months since crises are opportunities for growth.

Awakening is an ongoing process, the good news is that the heart is patient. It silently waits for your awakening, which means his/her awakening, which means for your mind to finally shut up.

The bad news is that fear isn’t helping to wake up. Or maybe it is?

Lets dive in this deeper for a moment. From fear comes contraction or freeze, the infamous fight or freeze response to potentially harmful events, like a pandemic, or when you’re having a safari in Africa and suddenly the tire of your 4wheel goes flat when a herd of lions is approaching.

Most people spent a lifetime repeating the stories they created around their trauma’s, without really solving anything. It’s a way to stay away from the pain. The majority of humans rather avoid pain to stay in a kind of middle range of emotions. Other options are to numb yourself out with addiction. Then the life pulse of your life starts to look like this:

Numb — Numb — Numb — TRIGGER — Numb — Numb —NETFLIX — Numb — Numb — TRIGGER — Numb — Numb — MacDonalds

I did that myself too, for ages, especially in relationships, the perfect breeding ground to explore your triggers. Until I found a place safe enough to really go deeper, release the pain and opening up to fully receive the love from others. From that imprint on, it is easier for me to stay open, to be more heart connected.

The downside of feeling deeper is that I also feel emotions more that I used to label negative. Like disconnection, grief, anger and the pain of life in general. I recently found out that this capacity is not a downside at all unless I manage to really go deep into the emotion, breathe into it so to speak.

It is our minds that make things about ourselves wrong, and this closure from feeling deeper and accepting our emotions actually causes pain, not trauma in itself

So I guess that’s it for now. I described my process of opening up more, with feeling more as a result, less addiction and numbing out.. and as the end result: feeling more joy… yeah

That is one way of living a more heart-connected life. And I believe this process is applicable for many people since we behave kind of the same when it comes to trauma, how we deal with our pain, emotions and opening up.

Please share your experiences in the comments when you like, thank you.

Not Your Money but Your Mind Is the Door to Your Freedom

How to change your relationship with money to change the game

In a few months last year, I owned over €10.000. A rarity in the last decade of my life.

What did I do with it?

I spent it on a magical 6-day horseback journey over the Andes with 5 friends in Argentina. I lavished myself in Costa Rica in a surf retreat and did a spiritual deep dive in the Envision festival. I danced the tango in Buenos Aires for 2 weeks staying in amazing AirBnB’s.

It was all soul-nourishing and some of the memories will stay with me forever. But now I need to pay the rent again with my freelance work.

I literally never know how much will come in each month, but it kind of always works out. It did for the past 7 years, so why not for the next month?

Still, I can wake up feeling the cold sweat of the fear of lack of money. The classic: “What if…”

I discovered a way to deal with those worries about money.

I realized I can’t control the people that might like to hire me, but I do can control my mind.

I even believe now after years of practice, that my relation to this fear, my relationship to the idea of lack, influences the flow of money in my life. It is not one on one, it is not a trick, but it does have a major impact.

Let me take you on my journey. I sincerely believe anybody can do the same.

What is money?

Money is a big deal for most people, even people that have enough of it. It is a mindset, a way of looking at the world, a lifestyle almost. And it is very personal. For some it can become an obsession, a holy grail, for others it just comes and goes like the tide. I belong to the latter group.

What you don’t have you don’t need it now — U2 lyric from A Beautiful Day

In the spiritual circles and in many new-agy coursebooks you will read that money is an energy, money is Love.

I agree, but I can’t pay the rent to my old Ibicencan landlord with love. No matter how compassionate I would be to the cashier in the local supermercado, I would not be able to pass the counter with my shopping after giving her a big hug full of positive energy.

Imagine for a moment a world where that actually would work, wouldn’t that be amazing?

Money can be a materialization of love and energy and it is often a result of our mindset, our conditioning and limiting beliefs in life.

What do I mean with that?


Money as a mindset

Maybe you have the following mindset, a deep believe how the world works:

In your life you have been conditioned to ‘survive’ this harsh world, you are alone and you have ‘to make it’. Money is scarce, and you will need to fight for it. You need to become ‘better’ than your colleague, or else he or she will take your money and you’d be left behind.

Or you might believe this:

When I follow my passion, joy, and talents, I believe life will reward me. There is, in fact, enough money for everybody and when I start sharing my gifts, start giving value to people in their every days life, the money will flow to me as a fair reward.

The magical thing here is, it is up to you what to believe.

Maybe we can divide the people on this planet into two categories. The ones that have learned to believe in lack, and the ones that believe in abundance. I get it, it’s too black and white. It’s for the sake of what I bring forward.

Where do you belong?

To find out, sit for a moment with yourself and take some time to write down your dominant ideas around money. What does the dollar mean to you? Think about your mother and father, how did they perceive money? Did it flow easily for them? Was it a struggle in parts of their lives? And how come? What imprint did that make on you when you were young?

This is an important one, go as deep as you can and figure out this essential thing:

Do you believe there is enough money for everyone, in other words, abundance is your core mindset, or do you have a deeper belief that there is not enough for everybody, at least not for you and there is a structural scarcity?

Research shows that only 19 % of Americans think they make enough money. This means the rest somehow faces a reality of lack, of not making enough money.

What really helped me in unfolding my own limiting beliefs around money was the 21 days abundance challenge from Deepak Chopra. I believe many people around the world have done it, or are doing it right now. Find a link at the end of this article.

To fully grasp the fact that money is a mindset is your key to having more, or less of it. Or at least, coming to peace in your relationship with money

Why don’t you save some money?

When I was a kid, I was a real banker. I had a small vault with a lock and a key, and I saved as much of the small pocket money as I received. I also saved old coins. I even had one from 1749 from the Dutch East Indian Company.

I could spend hours counting my money, and up till this very moment I can tab in the good feeling that gave me. Sometimes I even smelled it, and it didn’t stink. I also loved Monopoly and gaining all those expensive streets gave me a short-lived sensation of power. I did feel sorry though for my young peers that were left with nothing. Monopoly was trying to make me ready for the real world.

I completely lost that ability to save along the way. What happened?

Well, in short, life hit me.

Already from a young age, I had to deal with severe losses in my life. My mother died when I was 22. I never inherited large sums of money, I did have to make it on my own, most of the times in life. And I Did.

My life lessons became my capital.

Losing my mother dying of cancer changed a lot for me.

I am sure it added to the art of living in the moment that I started to apply to my own life more and more.

It is the: Why save all my money for later when later can be taken away from me in an instant?

The losses in my life molded my soul and contributed to living in the moment and finding all I need in that sweet spot of blissful simply being here

When you have lost a dear one, you might recognize this feeling. And I realize this can apply to even find yourself the times just after the ending of a relationship

Death, or the pain of loss, strips away al the non-essential things in life.


Death and Money

Death is the best teacher to throw you in the wild currents of life, you might feel you drown sometimes, but at least you are alive.

Before death entered my life, I realized I was standing at the sideline waiting for life to begin.

Death comes with the assignment to fix the more fundamental questions in life, at least, when you are open to it.

Why are you here? What do you really want to do in life?

I have experienced that life is short, death is real, I better start making the best out of it. Every day, every minute.

That is why for me, I tend to spend my money on widening my horizon, on courses that make me expand, and travel and connecting to people I don’t know.

At the end of each journey, I have an empty bank account and golden memories. I have lived, I have loved, I felt pain and found ecstasy in smelling the flowers along my path.

This is exactly why I don’t save much money. My culture still tells me I should, this is how that works and what you can do about letting that go too.

The way money works in the West

In our western culture, the core-setting is scarcity, Period. Our complete economy is built around scarcity.

From when we were young we have been taught that money is scarce. Without scarcity, no economy.

More for you means less for me. Our system has thrown us in a endless competition for never enough money

Because we have been taught this by our parents, the way they lived, our schools, teachers, and society itself, this is one of the deepest mindsets most people have.

The way we organize our money has become a result of the belief in the story of lack. In fact, our money system itself has become something based on lack. This is because the money comes with interest-bearing debt. Money must make more of itself, so in essence, there is never enough money.

When the bank lends you $1000,-, you need to pay interest, so you need to bring at least $1100,- back to the bank.

The bank credit of $25.000,- I took when I graduated from Uni took me 15 years to pay off. At the end of that journey, I had paid the bank $50.000,-.It was a good lesson not to deal with banks or take high credits. I never had a mortgage.

Take a moment for yourself and realize how strong this belief, this truth, this cultural mindset is alive in yourself. How much of that story do you actually believe?

For me, in my personal life, it is no longer true. Life has shown me another truth. One that is more real than my teachers and parents have taught me.

I will show you how to slowly peel these layers of cultural limiting belief, of the false collective mindset of scarcity that created our present-day money.


How to free yourself from the prison of money

The mindset of the permanent lack of money making us compete for it is the root cause of most of our problems in this world.

It has created the pyramidical financial systems where 1 per cent owns everything, and 99% does not. I write about this in my own publication: Spirit of Crypto.

I have decided to step out of that system, by simply thinking differently, because my heart continuously tells me there is a more beautiful world possible than the one we have created so far.

At the core of my thinking is believing. After my life lessons, my pain and journey, I have come to the realization that there is no lack in my life anymore, there is only abundance.

Well, that’s easy, your critical or cynical mind might think reading this. And quite honestly, yeah, it is. You can do this too.

There is an abundance when all I have is my last €100,-, and there is an abundance when I had my €10k.

Don’t mix the amount of money people have with how abundant they are, how abundant they feel. Many people feel rather shitty in their big palaces with security cameras and high fences.

Abundance is our birth right and in some crazy way, it is taken away from you and me. But only as long as we allow since abundance is a state of mind

You can claim it back. This is how

How to claim your abundance

The most direct way is tapping in the abundance that is you, that lives in you.

You will need some quietness, contemplation, meditation, and beauty of nature for this.

The best is to combine all of this. Find a beautiful spot in nature, and meditate there, contemplating some universal truths. Connect to the abundance of nature that lives in you too, since you are an interconnected part of nature.

Or when you are in a room, just sit down and create a nurturing atmosphere. Light some candles, ignite some incense, put on some soft quiet music.

Than tab into the reality that the core of your essence is abundance. Feel the gratitude on a deep level. For this life, for the fact that you breathe and can feel your heart. For everything that is around you, that you acquired. It can be material things, but also your friendships, your family, your talents.

Be thankful for the little gifts that each and every day brings you.

Gratefulness is the rich soil on which abundance grows

Really, there is not much more to it.

I could go on and tell you about frequencies, the law of attraction and so on, but that turns it all into a trick you can learn. For me, this question is more relevant

Can you feel the abundance flooding through the veins of your life, can you feel that true source of life? Can you tune into your heart by silencing the voices in your head and can it magically evoke a real smile on your face?

In that feeling and reality, there is no place for scarcity let alone the prison of money that our culture has built around us.

Trust life and money will flow

There is another final mind exercise I like to show you. It is my personal safe haven in times when my old conditioning takes over. O yeah, that can happen.

I can wake up sweaty with rings of fear around my heart telling me I won’t survive another day and they all come and get me and throw me in a deep dark smelly dungeon when I can’t pay my rent. Or something like that.

Then I remember myself this other truth, I tell myself this:

First of all: From all the fears that my mind created, none of them has played out in the real world. None. You can do the check for yourself. Or at least, not in the same exact manner.

That makes the voice of my fears a big liar. And frankly, it is.
Your mind can become the Alfred Hitchcock of your life producing ultimate horror scenes on demand, making you hooked and keeping you stuck in the darkness of your home cinema in your head. While outside the sun shines.

Second: Apparently I have managed to pay that same amount of money for the rent for the last 7 years I live here. So I will manage now.

Just look at the facts of life. You are alive, you probably have some food in your fridge, you have friends, a home, you can read these lines and God bless you are healthy.

OK, one layer under that comforting thought might still be some doubt.

Will that freelance job come through? How many books will I sell this month? I many people will join my guided tours? Or whatever job you do.

Then I breathe out, tune into the 2nd strongest feeling after feeling the abundance all around you and deep inside of you: Trust


Trust has brought me here

Life has proven me this far that I can fully trust the universe, he or she or it will have my back.

To trust is an exercise in looking beyond the fear, in looking what is actually real.

What reality tells me is that life really treats me well. I do work for it, I have my doubts, my fallbacks, and short-lived crisis. Throughout all of those life lessons that shaped me, I have come to some certain truths about money, life, abundance, and trust. They have become my guiding light.

The more I give to live, the more life gives me back. The more I trust life, the more life rewards me.

When you tune into your own abundance that lives deep inside of you beyond conditioned layers of fear, beyond the voice of culture that imprints you with lack, you will find an ocean of abundance.

Swim in it as much as you can, and your life slowly but surely will materialize in the same abundance, whatever that means for your unique path of life.

How To Benefit From Highly Energetic Places

Sometimes they show you miracles, this is what I experienced.

Rain drizzled from a grey sky on that late October afternoon in Ibiza. I just led a Dutch family to a place called Atlantis. From there, we had to make a steep climb to see Es Vedra, an amazing rock formation in the south-west of the island. The parents tired, the kids loving it. I turned my head to the left to take one last glance at Atlantis, the place where the Phoenicians took out big blocks of sandstone to build the walls of Ibiza town.

What I saw next took all my breath away

A huge perfect spiral in the sea, at least 2 km wide.

My brain could not place this image immediately, but my body felt it directly, in a nanosecond. This was a miracle of nature. A real present was given to me when I least expected it.

My photographer’s instinct survived this energetic blast and I quickly took out my Nokia 43 megapixel camera phone. I took that one shot. Then I turned around to the family and pointed at the miracle.

Yes, Yes, A spiral. Can we go home now?

Didn’t they see it? Or were they just too tired? I decided to have a last look at this amazing phenomenon of nature, and I led the family safe home.

Later I Googled ‘Spiral in the ocean’, and found nothing.

This is a story about what living in front of a powerspot has given me apart from the spiral, and how you can benefit from energetically highly charged places. They can literally change your life in a nanosecond.

The earth has places of high vibration. This often goes hand in hand with extreme beauty. Think of Uluru in Australia, the sacred ancestral creator spirit from the Dreamtime of the Aborigines. Or the Egyptian pyramids.

Powerspots are places where new information enters the world. On those often famous spots, a calibration takes place.

They are the chakras of the earth. Acupuncturists will treat the centre points of chakras to re-centre the body. The powerspots on the earth are channels of high vibrational energy that re-centre the earth. They often attract thousands of tourists that come for their extreme beauty, but subconsciously are attracted to its higher vibration.

They are places of healing, transformation, gaining new insights and sometimes natural ecstasy.

Imagine living in front of one of those places. That is what happened to me.

I gained a lot of insights on how to benefit from that strong energy, and what it can teach us. I lead people on hikes, and organize short retreats in front of the famous powerspot in Ibiza: Es Vedra. All of those activities are inspired by its energy. Because this natural beauty needs to be shared, with as many people as possible.

And there is a dark side to it, I come to that later.

I also believe these magic places play an important role in the transformation we are undergoing as humanity at the moment.

There is a lot of disruption, people are searching for their true purpose, and we are learning to take care of the earth again. Powerspots can help us in our quest, personal and on a broader level.

First, let’s have a look at the seven most famous powerspots that are easy to visit

Mount_coliforniaThe 7 chakras of the earth: The most energetic places


This list comes from some research. I googled energetic strong places and found an article by Laura Grier. Her story in huffpost.com starts, you guessed it, in front of Es Vedra, Ibiza. Some other writers mention other places of power like Mount Beluga in Siberia, the mother root chakra of the earth. Or a place in the mountains in Bulgaria where every year thousands of people gather in white to dance in symmetrical forms to celebrate the strong energy there.

Everything is energy. Everything is vibration. According to certain laws of attraction, we attract what we vibrate. Raising your vibration then becomes a tool to get closer to your soul purpose. That is what we are all here for.

Next to your personal vibration, the earth has its own vibration. Its called the Shuman resonance. Many believe that this pressure has lots to do with the awareness of humans on the planet.

We are in a period of highly increasing vibrations. The Shuman resonance is accelerating.

When we look at humanity, I believe we are in a story in between stories. Meaning the old paradigm, things we believed in, are no longer true for many.

Our economic system, for example, seems to be in the process of getting obsolete. Do you still believe in our cartoon politicians? New technologies like the Blockchain are invented to bridge us to our new phase of evolution.

Now let’s take this back to a more personal level.

Many people are called in these days to become transformers. People to help make that change. They are the coaches, healers, visionary and modern saints and visionaries of today’s society. They have learned to raise their own vibration, embrace their deeper soul purpose and in doing so they are embodying that change. They are walking the talk.

True transformation is the result of challenging choices, letting go of the old even when the new hasn’t manifested yet. It can take tremendous courage since the old provided security. As a Ninja warrior of your life, it requires you to step into the unknown.

Powerspots can be of great help when you find yourself in a similar process.

Powerspots are the generators of change and energetic initiators. Staying close to a high energetic places on earth will raise your vibration and in doing so brings you closer to your purpose.

This also applies to your favourite place in nature. It can even be in a park in a city. A place to redraw from the buzz of life and recharge. Like the bigger powerspots, often there is a sense of awe and beauty around those places. A place where you can breathe. It doesn’t matter how strong, but you probably feel it and that’s why you use them as a natural battery to recharge.

When you haven’t found one yet, I hope this piece inspires you to go find your own powerspot in nature.


I have some friends that are very sensitive to these kinds of energies. They visit Es Vedra especially to receive the new program by meditating in front of Es Vedra. Or just being in its presence for a while. In one rare occasion, a woman couldn’t face the rock directly. After finally meeting the rock, she explained to me she felt energetically run over by a train.

Energetically high charged places will support and speed up your process of transformation. In front of them, you can drop your old stories and stand naked in front of your own truth. And possibly embrace it.

This new vibration challenges you to get aligned with it, so you need to step up to the game. Cut out any bullshit of the mind and dare to take the next step, including any difficult choices you might have to make.

Lower vibration simply can’t catch up with the new energy that is entering your system around power places.

Es Vedra’s energy is intensifying and purifying. The higher vibration creates the experience that everything is more intense. Its beauty, incredible sunsets, a full moon setting in the sea wrapping everything in magic silver shine.


The dark side I mentioned earlier is that the shadow of everything gets magnified too.

When I feel a bit alone in my house in front of the rock, I feel desolate, a soul gone astray in the middle of a deserted sea. When I feel pain, it is pretty intense and I need to purge it immediately. Sometimes very powerfull winds and thunder and lightning rage around me in winter and it feels like the rock is purging the shadow of humanity.

W.T.F ?

This may sound far off, but maybe you have experienced this too when being close to a Powerspot. Or even want to experience this. The downloads you can get and the purging will all help you to accelerate your process you are in. This is why I started to organize the retreats here, to offer that channel to people.

In a very organic way, I have found tools around Es Vedra to support these processes of letting go and receiving with my clients.

The spiral in the sea that I saw that afternoon was super special. But there are more spirals around Es Vedra and Atlantis. Just before the steep descent to Atlantis, there is a big stone spiral made by Andres. He used to live in a cave high above Atlantis with his partner. A wise man whose life mission was to take care of the stone spiral. A modern Sadhu, wise men. For him, the spiral symbolized the cosmos, life and death, infinity.

I invite my guests to enter the spiral. Its energy really works when people step inside. I ask them to let go of whatever doesn’t serve them any longer, leave an offering in the middle, and receive new life-force, inspiration and what they are ready for.


Interestingly enough the energetic vortex of the powerspot Es Vedra has been materialized in the stone spiral made by Andres. A vortex literally means Swirling Spiral energy.

What I witnessed in the sea that October afternoon was another materialization of the same vortex energy, the huge perfect spiral in the sea.

It is not always easy to live around those energies all the time. But I have embraced my own purpose to hold space for it. To transmit and explain its knowledge to visitors.

It helped me to realize my long kept dream. I wrote a novel in front of the rock: The Wisdom keeper. I am sure there is some rock wisdom in there too.

Find your own powerspot, your sanctuary of beauty. However big or small it is, it will reconnect you with your purity, grace and inner peace. Whenever you feel displaced, off-center or drowning in a world of noise, outer layers and diffusion, it will guide you back to your own power.

Awakening is a different name for raising one’s frequency. It is about becoming aware of different perspectives, from which you may choose whatever you resonate with
