What’s alive in you?
My family and I just got back from The Netherlands where we spent an amazing time visiting our parents and friends, after a hiatus of 6 years.
It was a rewarding and valuable visit for many reasons.
We felt the wish growing stronger and stronger over the last year that we needed to visit our home country. It was a deep pull from within that sparked us to go.
To step out of our comfort zone.
To leave Ecuador behind for a while.
To be open for new insights and clarity.
And to have new eyes.

It felt like what Joseph Campbell once coined:
“Follow your bliss, and doors will open
where there were no doors before”.
I hear you think: ’So what doors have opened?’
Besides for family reasons, we felt there were deeper underlying motives that ignited us to go on a journey. A force bigger than ourselves that invited me and my family to look for clues and pointers for the next phase in our lives. To truly listen and surrender to this wisdom.
After 7 years of living in Vilcabamba, in this magnificent piece of paradise, I got the affirmation this cycle has come to an end.
By actually visiting The Netherlands new opportunities and dreams have surfaced, that couldn’t have come into existence if we would have stayed here. The doors of new promises wouldn’t have appeared and opened.
We’re transitioning to a new life. To a more expressed life, infused with the wisdom, presence, and fulfilment we absorbed while rooting here for the last 7 years.
It’s a process.
With intention and focus.
One aligned step at the time.
With full abandon.
It will not happen tomorrow. But I feel we’ll return to the place where we started somewhere next year.
I’m grateful for your loving attention.
The cycle of 7 years seem to be a universal law.
Are you ending a life phase too and stepping into a new one, dear friend?
What does this look like? What signs do you get?
I’d love to hear from you, as we can support each other in this wonderful journey called life.
Have a fabulous Sunday.
