About seven years ago, I prayed an intense prayer for the world. I had just seen something on the news that had upset me and I prayed intensely to Mother Mary. I asked how to turn our world around and how to relieve the suffering of so many. Suddenly I heard a soft feminine voice: “I cannot do it for you” the voice said. “But I can show you how”.
With these words a beautiful, exciting and transformative journey started. A journey I would like to invite you for by sharing my music and by sharing my story.
My album Awake
After this prayer, I started to receive songs, sometimes accompanied with a vision and information about the meaning of the song. The songs are part of my own awakening process and I have been receiving them, recording them, polishing them (with Producer and Musician Eric Van Den Brink) for the past five years. With every major step in my own process I received or wrote a new song about how we, humanity, can heal the deepest parts of ourselves, and restore the brother- and sisterhood of mankind. I receive many beautiful reviews on my album. People share that they feel the healing energy within the songs.
I also published a workbook to go with the album so that people can deepen their experience with the songs through meditation/visualization, reading about the meaning of the songs, reading about the visions/messages from my guides and through journalling.
I have been writing songs since I was fifteen years old. After years of performing in the Netherlands and abroad, I pursued a different kind of career as an entrepreneur and nutritionist. But during a time of spiritual awakening, new songs and different lyrics started to flow through me. These new songs are mostly about a new world, about new possibilities for our world.
More and more I was tapping into a spiritual reality beyond our everyday experiences. In this realm I experienced the harmony and unity of all beings. And as I continue to align to this reality, I experience the presence of many loving guides who support humanity in what I believe to be The Great Change. They join me in the creation of my songs. Sometimes indirectly in the form of inspiration or directly with a song that carries their message. These are messages of hope, of love, of unity. To bring back to us the memory of who we truly are.
