The idea that spirituality is only for a select group of people stems from very old ideas about who was able to serve god. These ideas are still imprinted into our consciousness. When we have a religious or spiritual problem we go to our priest, rabbi, imam, guru, shaman, psychologist, for a solution. You tell them your story and you expect that they will come with an suitable answer. This is what they have studied for. It is their job.
The middleman is supposed to be the translator, the communicator between you and the divine. And it is true. Some people are better in making the connection than others. Some people have this gift, while others have many other gifts. Thank god these people are here to help others. Thank god these humans exist and offer their help so that the symbolical, universal language becomes understandable in human language. When spirit communicates with us, it could be through metaphors, symbols and dreams, but also through thoughts, feelings and visions (and many many other ways). When you really need to receive a message, you will receive it through the channel that suits you most. Eventually you will understand the message.

There was a time where I felt myself literally being the ball of the ping pong game. One moment I was ping and the next moment I was pong. It was a difficult time where I was exploring my Self. It was a time where I learned the extremes of this dual world slapping me from one side to the other. During those ping pong times I was much frustrated, not knowing how to handle myself. I could not understand what was going on and why all of this happened to me. I was caught up in a game and I didn’t know the rules.
When I look back on those days I can see the valuable lessons I had to learn. One of them is that we live in a game with the core rule of duality. I had to experience that everything exists in twofold. One extreme on one side and another extreme on the other side of the scale. It seems that they can never come together in the game And one cannot exist without the other. Eventually it is and it isn’t supposed to come together.

Every single day I learn more about myself and about the world around me. It is not by surprise that I learn new things. I asked for it. For many years. I wanted to know who I was and what the purpose of me being here on earth is. Over time, I got some puzzle pieces thrown at me from my spirit team (you have a team too!! Go talk to them). There are a couple reasons why they only give pieces of the puzzle. 1) It is to overwhelming to get all the information at once and 2) There is no fun left to live for when you know everything.
A way for me to cope with my social anxiety is to do completely the opposite of what someone with social anxiety would normally do. Instead of hiding, I’m opening up. It is part of my learning experience in this Universe(ity). By opening up myself, there is not much I can hide for others. I can not hide behind shame, guilt, addictions, or fears. I share parts of myself as much as I can in the moment and in return I learn to overcome my fears and everything that stands in my way to feel freedom. It is a great deal!

One of the things that makes my life worth living, is music. I wake up with it, I listen music while biking, when I am alone and when I am with friends. When I am sad and when I am happy. While partying and while working. There is always music in my life.
My taste of music is quite broad and that is why I’m so much in love with the music of The Cat Empire. They’ve mixed up many genres, tunes, instrument, styles in a miraculous collection of songs. Personally I believe they are geniuses. Their Funky sounds and their great melodies always give me a lot of power and energy. The words of their songs always teach me some kind of wisdom. When I hear a tune I can’t help myself….I just need to move.

Last couple of months the universe showed me what being vulnerable really feels like. It was a tough ride. Heavy mood swings were part of my daily life. Physical and emotional pain raging through my body. My heart was bleeding heavily. It felt so much pain. Most of the time I didn’t understand were it came from. Why did I had to go through all of this shit? Why did I feel so much pain? What did I do wrong in order to deserve this?
These questions and many many more, were needed to be asked. Those questions came from my wounded ego that did not understand that it was wounded in the first place. My ego always tells me that everything is well. And yes, usually all is well. But now, with the intense rising of the energies on the planet, these feelings had to come up. My emotions wanted to be seen, my shadows wanted to be heard and my truth wanted to be felt. I knew I had to go through this period in my life in order to process all the heavy energies that I carried unknowingly with me for such a long time.
