Your style

Yesterday Nina Elshof, Feng Shui Academy  posted a question on Facebook to choose a style you like.

Make a choice:

Today she let us know what element your choice is: answers

Before you click on answers, first make your choice and then go and see.

I choose picture 1 and 5.

Style 1 stands for wood.
Wood grows, develops and always is in full motion with impatience. It does not interfere with the environment. It therefore helps you to be yourself independently and autonomously. Wood also helps to renew  yourself and get moving. Wood support to put into words everything you care into, for example, writing a book. At the same time, wood is like a flower ball bearing the promise of a beautiful flower, carrying  and inviting many hidden talents and qualities to blossom.

My Feng Shui profile is 3-4-4 which is all wood – so my choice for picture 1 is all about me and the right choice.

During the course of my life I learned to integrate the element of water more and more, especially the reconnecting part with my own source which was not that easy.Took a lot of inner development and search to finally find the original goal of this life. My work colours are blue/white I also learned quite soe time ago. Everybody has a working colour. You can use this as cloths your wear to work or for your own business. Choosing No 5 suites this perfectly.

Style 5 stands for water.
Water is mobile and flexible and is always capable of adapting. It’s an element that shows as no other  how to move with the flow of life. How you can, for example, flow with your emotions,  instead of  your emotions  flooding you. At the same time, water is quiet and cool. So you can really relax with water. It helps you to reconnect to your own source and to get clear what your original goal is in this life.

So make your choice of one of the above pictures and go see your answer.

Just stumbled upon the next week horoscope by Nadia Gilchrist . The first thing that rang a bell was this part:

Also on April 20th (this is a big day)Mercury Rx retreats into Aries a few hours after it conjoins the Sun. New insight that you unearth can be applied to an initial impulse/conversation that first sparked around March 30th.

That was the day I found the root .

The next paragraph that hit me was:

However, also on April 21st we have the final square between Venus in Pisces and Saturn Rx in Sag. So you will be dealing with painful limits that have been around since April 8th.

That was the day I initiated the root-tool  and an awful week started.

From that day on I struggled with heavy pain around the diaphragm, back pain and an outrageously beating heart. Could not eat much, sit long, had to move around to bear the pain or lay down repeatedly. There is really something around core wounding going on, working in layers but I still cannot nail down the concrete issue.

Some relieve came with the Tuina Massage with acupuncture I decided to undergo all of a sudden. Some pain areas disappeared the next day and the diaphragm slowly recovered. Each night I slept 13 hours for 7 days in a row.

Yesterday, on Holy Saturday,  I was feeling a bit better and could eat normally. Today, Easter Sunday Morning, for the first time in days, I feel okay.

Remarkable fact, at least to me, with the initiation of the tool was, that I had to sit down while doing it. Finally I had to cross myself three times with the tool.

The cross – the symbol of the Holy Week. The cross also is the sign for the total human with spirit – as above so below – so left so right.



Four days passed before got clear how the top had to be done.The top had to be locking like whirling energy. Tomorrow the tool will be initiated with its specific power.


By happenstance also a little painting came up.







Biking home from my annual medical check up, which I do every year, alongside the road there it was – a new thrilling base for a new tool. It is the root of a tree.

I’m curious what purpose will crystallize when it is dry and I start working on it.


UPDATE 01-04-2017

First step – it had to be started today – the urge.


UPDATE 02-04-2017

next steps on the new tool – all the fibrous roots has to be covered with tiny glass pearls, patience needed.














Needed to do some minor shopping. That’s not something difficult you may think. You’ll never know.

Thought of doing it quick in one retailer…it was not meant to be.

Started on ROFL-mode when entering AH and seeing the big poster hanging from the ceiling:


For outsiders: for every 15 euro purchase you get one mini-vegetable-garden. The grown vegetable is just enough to feed a small garden gnome. And what the hack is the difficulty with those mini things you need an app for?

Laughing out loud, I passed the gate and started shopping. Sausage, bread, soya milk, water – easy finds. I also was looking for….

All the approximately 3 meters of mayonnaise from different brands – NO Rémoulade !

The first KID I found filling the shelves, I grabbed to ask if he know where I can find the Rémoulade. He looked desperately at me and then around to find another employee to help me. An older man slowly walked towards us and asked what’s the problem. “She is looking for Rémoulade.” “Must be in the mayonnaise row “, he said, let’s have a look.”  Together we went over there and he searched the 3 meter of shelves to find what I was looking for. “Not here, maybe out of assortment.” he suggested.  “All the Kühne – made with love – products are on the shelves and only Rémoulade is no longer available?” I answered.  “We have to look in the computer, please follow me.”

Had to follow him through the complete store back to the entrance where the office is. Had to go into the office and sat there to watch him looking for my product. “Can you please spell the word Rémoulade to me?” he asked. Deep within me, some part of me almost fainted by inward laughter. All the products came up but no Kühne Rémoulade.  “See!!! we only have Remia Rémoulade Sauce!”  he triumphed. “Let’s go back and look for Remia.”  I followed the man in blue back to the 3 meters mayonnaise where we both started looking for Remia Rémoulade Sauce.


“I have to go to the computer for the product number, then find a terminal and then, with the product number, I can find the place the Remia Rémoulade Sauce is to be found within the 3 meters mayonnaise. It’s not that simple as all customers think.”

Hell of a job – the voice inside was awake again. Another woman suggested we have a look at the salad dressings. Proposal dismissed.

“It has to be here, shall I go to fetch the number?”

“No, thank you very much for your useless friendly help, I will buy it at Dirk v/d Broek.”

Meanwhile 3 other searching customers lined up to grab him. Have a lot of fun I thought sarcastically. Fetched the last products I needed and left the store after payment.

Got 2 mini vegetable gardens!!!

I donate them to the elderly home where they are put into a seed table just for show! The elders love watching them grow.




In this documentary about gifted children I saw the following text from one of my favorite authors: Pearl S. Buck.

The truly creative mind in any field
is no more than this
A human creature born abnormally inhumanly sensitive
To him a touch is a blow
a sound is a noise
a misfortune is a tragedy
a joy is an ecstasy
a friend is a lover
a lover is a god
a failure is death
add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to


 so that without the creating of music, poetry, books, buildings or something of meaning
his very breath is cut off from him
he must create
must pour out creation
by some strange unknown, inward urgency
he is not really alive unless he is creating

Wise words full of truth.



Black Swan

Reading two books simultaneously lately, today I choose to continue The Black Swan by Nassim Nicholas Taleb. Not an easy read sometimes. Not feeling thát well today, my head wasn’t fully in to it. Arriving at page 45 out of 403 ( with notes and literature 479) suddenly there was a voice in my head with the question

“What is a practical part for me at this particular time?”

Closed the book and concentrated on this question. Than opened it at a random spot. First reaction was laughter when seeing the header of the chapter I landed, followed by : Yeah, that’s right indeed!

Learning from Mother Nature, the oldest and wisest

long slow walks

I love Nature but I hate slow long walks alone, although this is precisely what I need. My very own Black Swan.

Suiting todays astrological weather.

With the Sun coming up to a square to Saturn on March 17, we may be struggling to put our faith into action. http://empoweringastrology.com/
