U R Magic

16117674_10154050359945736_747552575_nEnchanted faces at our Classes. I’m still amazed by what a simple hands on energetic body process can create. Not a lot of words or questions… yet full on amazement and presence: with their hands, eyes, body and energy.

For most of them it’s a recognition.
Of consciousness. Of ‘magic’. Of something that was hidden for a long, long time. And something they all ARE and can start accessing to BE and become more of.

Consciousness is becoming mainstream. 5 Years ago people gave me funny looks when I talked about it. Now people ask about it, because, they know.

We all are conscious beings you know… whatever name you give it. We DO know and have powers we can access. They might not be what you think they are and they might show up in many unexpected ways. If we would just have more room for them to COME UP, OUT and FLOURISH. In ALL areas of living LIVE.

All we require is actually ACCESS that potential…

For a while, I refrained from using the word ‘MAGIC’ a little bit… After some great challenges with myself and this world, I had to rediscover what it IS for me… I had to get more clear on what to choose and be and what people to hang out with, and it’s an ongoing adventure.

“What is my potency? What am I great at? What do I contribute to people and their lives and bodies? What am I not acknowledging that I’m great at that is so easy for me that I don’t even value?”

And it’s showing up… Consciousness has our back, if we have our own back. If we know what we would like to choose and go for.

Consciousness includes everything and judges nothing. The energetic, spiritual and all the matters of the earth.

If our choices and possibilities are Infinite… What can we choose to be the Magic we know we can be?

WEIRD

16939331_746256858873169_2295516391210218711_nSomehow this image makes me a little melancholic AND very alive!
It reminds me of the time I was sitting in the window to possibilities, all in ‘black’ 🙂

‘Weirdo’ in hiding, dallying around… ‘not knowing’ what to do or what to be….

Did I ever wait for things to come to me? Hm… not really…

Sometimes I would sit there, looking out, gazing at the sky and the twinkling stars, still surrounded by and surrounding myself with darker energies, hesitant to leap out of that open window…

Yet, most of the time I took action, I kept going, if not for myself then for others, as long as I kept going.
Until the darkness that had come up would wear off and dissipate…

I still have those moments and most of those have turned into a wondering while shifting into alignment with new choices, to become.

I’ve learned to never give up, no matter what. The ‘weird’ in me or the ‘weird’ I am will never fit in and will always weird other people out, all the time.

What a blessing 😉

You know that the word ‘weird’ got reintroduced by Shakespeare…?
Guess what the ‘weirded women/sisters’ from Macbeth did and were…? 😉

Keep going

Be weird, regardless
Step out into the world
Light your spark of Creation
Wear off the darkness that you once chose to surrounded yourself in

and Be the ‘magic’ you are

Be You

Here’s a cool video on ‘Making it Weird’ about where the word actually comes from 😉

I Love Bodies

14650187_10153780304470736_6478341017953335858_nLovely mornings and afternoons these weeks with all these Amazing people on my body work table 🙌🏻💪🏻

I love bodies ❤️
Working with them, body processing them, assisting them to stretch, build up strength, release and change pain, trauma and injury…

Changes get created so fast when people allow the organic chaos in their bodies to create in stead of trying to fix and order it…

I love it that the physical tools and techniques I’ve come accross in my dancer life keep on becoming greater, more efficient and dynamic when I keep on adding more Consciousness to it…

Truly dynamic and so fast 💫

And I love my living/workspace here in Scheveningen, my ‘little’ magic cabinet close to the Beach 😉💫

Now off to facilitate class tonight for another group of curious peeps! 🎉

How did I get so lucky?
How does it get even better?

❤️

HOSPITAL ADVENTURES

14322322_10153708616470736_3132392437325358312_nBusy check up today, September 12 2016

This is me.

Body is doing great. YES, I still have check ups after last years adventure, when things got really messy.

I’m making peace with my life and the world around me. For as far as I can, I’ve been looking at where my life is still messy and I’m cleaning up. My sick and hospital adventure created a lot of weird things with other people, that I am not happy with or proud of at all.

It’s bringing up so much than I ever wanted to create, or for people to get stuck with.

Not all fun, fairly uncomfortable yet very freeing to finally give it air to breathe and change.

I’ve had enough of being resentful in any way.
I’m alive, that is what matters to me.

I used to resist hospitals and medicine in all forms and ways. I was convinced and told that it was not ‘conscious’ enough and I was stupid enough to believe it.

Now I don’t resist anymore. It’s a choice to create with and to receive help when I need it, even though I didn’t want to at first.

I realized I used to not show or share this part of my life, to uphold a certain image.

“Will people still like me if they know that I have my flaws too? That I’m not perfect? That I landed up in the hospital while I’m facilitating body work and consciousness after all… So I should be enlightened and perfect, right…?”

Like it’s not allowed to be there.

Fuck that.
This is part of my life too.
This can be on Social Media too

This is me, with all my good, bad, ugly and beautiful.

Consciousness includes everything and judges nothing. Everything is possible and everything is a possibility.

So truly grateful for everyone that contributed to me when I needed them so much, to go through this and recover, to help me to build up my life again.

If I ever created any weird shit in your universe, by not being present, or by making things secret, or with whatever, I’d like to know. Please reach out to me and let’s talk.

Celebrate life and creation my friends.
It’s precious. Enjoy it. 

❤️

Energetic Empowerment Sessions

Merlijn - Energetic Empowerment SessionsDear you,

Even though I’ve been kinda hiding this… the sessions I facilitate are in greater and greater demand.

I’ve not really considered it to be of great value, yet what shows up is really different… so I’m changing my point of view about it 😉
And I get more referrals than ever before, from all over the world. Kinda cool huh? 🙂

It is so awesome to be able to contribute to others.
To create more clarity where it’s cloudy, for people to know what they know themselves or to bring more ease and peace to their bodies, from a space of no-judgment.

It seems that people are really looking for more freedom and possibility with their lives and bodies. And sometimes… you might be locked in old stuck energies, fears, judgments and blocks… the awarenesses you have might seem to much to handle… or you need some sparks and sprinkles to open up! To something greater…

Every session I facilitate is another magical co-creation… and I’m so grateful for the changes that unfold during and afterwards, for every single person!

Can I be a contribution to you, your life and your body?

Sessions can be live in person, by phone or online.

Let me know… I’m here 😉

You can check out some Testimonials here (most are in Dutch, some of them in English)

Wonder…

10356265_10153138632770736_129762899977913490_nHave you ever wondered if you could do or be something, and then… you did it? Or became it? Or got it?

Are you still wondering? In the midst of all the fast, busy, work, relationships and other wacky things?

Do you still have it? Do you recognize your wonder? Or did it become a little dusty with everything you had to do and be…?

Last two weekends I facilitated another series of Access Consciousness Classes. ‘Another class’ does never quite grasp the wondrous character of each class. Im still buzzing myself.

What all these tools can create and change!

The wonder I see invoked in peoples worlds and bodies… The continuous ‘wake up’ during class is very disarming and captivating… Especially when people surprise themselves!

The moments like: “Omg… can I really do this? Can I be this…? Really, I’m not wrong? Am I capable of this…? Somehow I’ve always known about this…”

Really…? 😉 What DID you know? What you always knew and couldn’t really… grasp? Or access?

It is really ‘waking up’ because we all are this by ‘nature’…

The wondrous spark in someones eyes, the occasional tears of recognition, acknowledgement and possibility… the body that come to life…

The sense of powerlessness coming off, the knowing opening up, awareness expanding and the receiving of self and others dynamically increasing…

Sinking in, like a feather, pinch… or like a sledgehammer!

All these inner or outspoken adventures people flow through in just four days… Lucky me to witness this time after time!

When the colored veils come off, people have an entirely different world. It might be the same world, yet their perception of it might be wider, greater, bigger, grander…

Wondrous…

I wonder what they will all choose now? To live, be, do, have, create…?
And what wonder their lives will open up to?

So I wonder… what would it be like to wonder? And to keep on wondering?
Not because I write it…
What if you were to wonder for nobody else but… you?
